He just killed someone. He then approached one of the adventurers. She looked to be an archer. She was shaking in her boots as he glared at her. It was clear from her lack of eye contact that she could not see him either. She was gored through the chest by the big spear. It was super gross how he smirked as she died. That seemed to wake all the others up. Both the bandits and adventurers charged him. The bandits were all human, but there were some elves and a dwarf in the adventurer party. That allowed them to see him. It did not seem to matter. The Blade Spirit took them all on. Not a single one of them survived. When the last man fell, the Blade Spirit changed in front of us. He must have reached the threshold to transform. He became a humanoid black dragon. His spear became longer and the blade became more vicious looking. It looked at the others. They were intimidated. Even a brave fighter like Shank had his tail between his legs. That was all that I needed to know about the spirit. I was not going to fuck with it. I was not going to get completely destroyed. Shank went up to it.
Looking at them together, Shank was actually much taller than the newcomer. That did not mean much though. The only thing that mattered was who was stronger than the other. Shank said "We were here first. You can't stay here. Leave!" The dragon just looked up at him in confusion. "Oh, you guys were here. I could barely sense your presence. You guys must be really weak." he said. Shank growled at him. "Who are you calling weak!? We won a whole village to ourselves before you arrived. What the hell have you accomplished aside from clearing out a bandit's nest" The dragon did not look impressed at all. "Well, if you guys had to join forces to win a village, I guess that I took this one all on my own. And all the riches that belong here too." he said. That set Shank off into a massive rage. He snarled and declared "Fine then! Have it your way. I'll drive you off myself." It was on from there. It was a knock down, drag out fight between them. I watched with all the others. They were going blow for blow. It was amazing. However, it was clear the dragon was the better fighter. Shank could not hold on.
