I, Andy Peloquin, challenge you, Scarlett Van Djik, to a duel to the death! But it is not we who will fight, but our characters…
In the black corner, weighing in at 180 pounds, standing a cool 6 feet tall, the Hunter of Voramis!
Tale of the Tape:
In the red corner, we have Skyla, at 132 pounds, 5 foot 6 inches, The Phoenix!
Tale of the Tape:
How would the Hunter kill Skyla?
The Hunter would try to overwhelm her with his inhuman speed, strength, and skill. All he has to do is pierce her skin with Soulhunger, and the dagger will consume her soul. Not even someone with considerable magical abilities can survive Soulhunger's bite--it was created to kill demons.
How would Skyla kill the Hunter?
Their fighting skills would likely be on par. However, the Hunter’s superhuman abilities would cause Skyla to require magic physical enhances to evade and match his strength. Hence, if Skyla was to fight sword to sword, she would gradually be worn down. So, the optimal tactic would be to use fire to cremate The Hunter while remaining out of his reach. The uncertainty here, is whether the flames could do their work faster than The Hunter could heal himself. If this was to fail, Skyla would try to disorient or trick The Hunter by using magic illusions or fire to get behind him and decapitate him.
Who would win?
Haha! I would say 90% The Hunter. With his combat skills, and superhuman and healing abilities, it is most likely The Hunter would win the fight. If he did not end the battle quickly it would mean a very long drawn out battle which would likely end with Skyla being overcome by fatigue anyway. Skyla’s only chance to win the fight would be to do so quickly by using all of her fire power, or by using trickery.

About Andy Peloquin
Andy Peloquin--a third culture kid to the core--has loved to read since before he could remember. Sherlock Holmes, the Phantom of the Opera, and Father Brown are just a few of the books that ensnared his imagination as a child.
When he discovered science fiction and fantasy through the pages of writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs, J.R.R Tolkien, and Orson Scott Card, he was immediately hooked and hasn't looked back since.
Andy's first attempt at writing produced In the Days: A Tale of the Forgotten Continent. He has learned from the mistakes he made and used the experience to produce Blade of the Destroyer, a book of which he is very proud.
Reading—and now writing—is his favorite escape, and it provides him an outlet for his innate creativity. He is an artist; words are his palette.
His website (http://www.andypeloquin.com) is a second home for him, a place where he can post his thoughts and feelings--along with reviews of books he finds laying around the internet.
He can also be found on his social media pages, such as:
