As Adrianís claws were repelled his footing changed substantially and the deflected hand rose up to seize the claw attempting to cut down on his left. Dimly he felt the pain of razor sharp teeth cutting into his flesh, and his blood poured from his wounds. He moved inwards, lifting the mutated claw and skipping underneath her arm as her body turned further to the right.
Once he had moved behind her back his grip on her right arm would only strengthen as he twisted around wrenching the arm painfully low behind her at a little above waist height. This would leave him facing the same direction as Carmen, and as soon as he had the advantage of positioning his right hand would seize the claw and pull it away from his left hand. However, even if it were freed as easily as it should be he would simply shift its position so he could retain wrenching her right arm behind her back and potentially break the bone.
It would be as he did this that the advancing ninjaís would come to his attention, although he had been caught up in the fight and not yet noticed them he was still in a favourable position, while they were unable to strike at him without injuring Carmen. With that situation set, he would remain standing behind her and watch the ninjas carefully, pulling Carmenís arm periodically to remind her that any sudden moves could be the end of her.
