And then, for all of her earlier silent bitching and self criticism, the world would suddenly find itself very, very kind to Miyoko. While she wasn't able to to keep track of everyone present, especially after the dust cloud from the demi-god creature thing had covered most of the field, she was close enough to know that Firebug was still in the fight - but more importantly, the dust cloud that was kicked up had additional implications, ones that Miyoko couldn't help but find herself internally smiling at. Her gift, while god given, was still limited in that it was heavily dependent on the world around her - she wasn't able to simply make electricity from nothing, but rather she had to take it from existing sources. Not exactly easy when the particles needed wanted to naturally cling to things, but physics was a wonderful thing when you understood it. Lightning storms in general occurred when strong winds caused the air to literally rip stray electrons from other molecules in the air through friction alone, and it was that same force that made sandblasting PVC pipe and metal generate amusing results. The dust storm, frankly, was no different, and even better it removed her one and only real shortcoming aside from the first one - the particulate in the air gave her a lot of solid matter to conduct charge through, and it was with that change that the woman began to pull yet additional charge to herself through the surrounding dust rather than just the ground itself.
Even after that, however, it seemed like the world was far from done turning her luck around as Orik himself finally stepped in to deal with the pests that she and the other fighters had been dealing with, the one that she and Firebug had been beating on suddenly impaled by a massive spike from the ground before being stabbed in the neck to finally finish it off. As Firebug and the other kid finished with the creature and turned to run off towards another target, Firebug himself finally seeming to hit his stride, Miyoko wasn't far behind - rather than following them, however, the woman had another idea in mind. Charge still continuing to build and small electrical discharges beginning to crackle over her form and web between her fingers, arms and legs, Miyoko instead started to walk ahead to approach the recently killed creature as the world briefly darkened from one of Orik's attacks. Thanks to him and the other fighter Miyo no longer had to worry about fighting to get her charge back, and as she reached the dead creature she would calmly reach out to lay a hand on its head. Almost instantly the charge she had imbued it with before was dispelled, but rather than dropping back to ground the power would flow straight back into her, the electricity arcing over her form immediately intensifying to constantly wreath her form in blue lightning.
Better, much, much better, and with that nearly all of the ringing would disappear from her hearing as the world gradually began to slow down even more in addition to the previous adrenaline rush as the neurons in her brain went into overdrive. This wasn't like the previous incident at the beginning - she wasn't trying to keep the charge contained, merely going, and without a need to keep it suppressed.... she was comfortable. Chaos and unpredictability were as close to Jag's domain as his gifts got, and Miyoko herself was no stranger to violence and destruction - with a moment taken to compose herself she was finally home, zen, for lack of better terms.
Stepping back to turn and look towards the source of light behind her, Miyoko wasn't terribly surprised to see that Firebug had stepped it up even more, although she was hoping that wasn't his A game. Given that he seemed to be generating fire from thin air and that he seemed to be more emotion than reason, though.... elemental gifted tended to come in two types. First, the kind that generated the shit from nothing, and tended to be limited by their own stamina, focus and endurance... and in this guy's case, probably emotional state, and raw anger like that didn't last long without burning itself out. Then you had the other kind, the slow starters - the ones that needed raw material to work with, but whose only limit tended to be the amount they could control at any given time and hair triggers on their abilities. The newcomer, the water user next to who - Miyoko was surprised to find - was another electricity user like herself seemed to be the same type that Miyoko herself was, or maybe even a mix as that water hadn't been there a moment ago.
Regardless, though, they were throwing everything that they had at the demi-god thingy currently trapped by the spike, but Miyoko had a feeling that wasn't going to be nearly enough to drop it. Not for long, anyways, and if her prediction about Firebug was correct they were going to be one fighter short rather soon - that being said, though, it gave her time to prep before getting involved, and she was so very, very close to the best rush of all. Taking in another deep breath, Miyoko would turn her attention inwards for just a few moments longer - with the charge absorbed back from the dead creature she already had a very good base to build on when her other efforts to charge were taken into account, and after another few seconds Miyoko would finally cross over that critical line. The electricity covering her body would suddenly seem to erupt outward, changing to cover the woman in an constantly shifting web of blue and white as larger bolts constantly tracked over her immediate surroundings. Max charge, and even as the electricity tried to escape the lightning bolts tracking over the ground and illuminating the area just gave her additional conduits through which to pull additional power in.
"Duck and cover your eyes, people!"
Grin from her first fight slowly creeping back onto her face, Miyoko would casually raise an arm to point at the trapped thing that Firebug was currently roasting. Not a trick she was entirely used to using given the potential for collateral damage, but she'd given the best warning she could - and with any luck, it'd be entirely unnecessary, assuming she could focus the next attack into a tight enough area that the nearby fighters would remain unaffected. Hand closing with the thumb and pointer finger out to form a gun shape, a few of the stray electrical bolts would begin to concentrate towards the fingertip to coalesce into a blindingly bright glowing orb - only to suddenly seem to disappear from sight a moment.
Electrons were funny, funny things. While most people recognized that they were tied to electricity and charge, they tended to do so much more than that, and most people never had any idea. Beta radiation, for example. Nonvisible, but it was nothing more than highly charged free form electron particles..... and, normally, not all that dangerous or with much range beyond a handful of meters. As the blue white glow at Miyoko's fingertip suddenly disappeared, however, all of that charge would be shifted to fire in the same direction at once, visible electrical bolts following the path of the electron beam to guide it straight towards the creature's face from a distance. Of all the tissue types in the body beta radiation did the most damage to the eyes, and with any luck it would immediately strike the thing blind in addition to the bolts burning the flesh where the beam hit. Unfortunately, however, beta radiation was still particle based, and Miyoko had no idea how it was going to act or affect those around the winged beast - with any luck it would just continue to cling to her intended target's face and continue to burn there, and hopefully the beam penetrated a bit deeper to damage more than just the thing's eyes.
