Rebeckka Doldrum strode down the dark hallways, instinctively pausing before ducking to avoid the fist of a concealed assailant. Rebeckka sprung back and fired a concussive blast of air at her attacker who swiftly avoided the missile and returned it with a knife thrust to the head. Rebeckka deflected the blow off her gauntleted fist and pinned the wielder of the knife up against the wall.
