Looking at the giant form of Graveclaw in front of him, Magneqrox wondered how to turn this to his advantage. The strigoi, whilst strong, did not seem too smart. Perhaps he could be tricked into doing something for him.

"Where isssss Blood Dragon?" Graveclaw snarled once more, anger showing in his eyes.

"You mean Merovich?" Magneqrox answered. The look in Graveclaw's eye answered the question. "Yes I heard what he did to your granddaughter. The so called knight must have no honour. I heard he tortured and played with her, before......"
He let his voice trail off. Whilst his dragon like face was sombre on the outside, within it was laughing. It was so to stoke the fires of Graveclaw's rage. This was going to be easier than he thought.
"I see none of your council allies are here? They don't stand by you? Wish to avenge their loss?" Moving forward to the furious Strigoi, Magneqrox lizard like tongue licked flickered over his lips,
"I can help you Graveclaw. Help me escape, and I will be you ally. I will take you to Merovich. I will even help you crush him if needed. I can be a potent and loyal friend Graveclaw," he lied, "unlike those fools upstairs"

The living flames across Magneqrox's body flared a for second, before he laughed in Graveclaw's face.
"Your pathetic," he gloated, "a miserable excuse for a vampire. Too scared to drink from humans and all of vampire kind repulsed by you." He cackled at the look of the strigoi's face, before impersonating his voice,
"Poor Graveclaw hasss no friendssssss. Boo hoo." The air in the room grew hotter as Magneqrox riled himself up, Phantasmogoria appearing in his hand, "your probably only sorry your granddaughter has gone, as you'll have to find some other young thing to rape."

At Magneqrox’s words Graveclaw let out a roar of inarticulated rage. Suddenly he barrelled forward, massive claws raking the dragonic vampire.
As the mass of muscle stampeded down on him, Magneqrox swung his blade in a glittering arc. Droplets of magical energy splashed everywhere, as Phantasmagoria was caught in the Strigoi’s massive hands. Both giant creatures strained against one another, but slowly Graveclaw’s strength began to show. Physically powerful beyond even a normal vampire, he slowly started to bend the blade between his hands, foam round his mouth his mouth in his frenzy.
“What are you doing?” snarled Magneqrox, trying with all his might to rescue his beloved blade. He was powerless to stop Phantasmagoria being slowly twisted, until with a echoing clang it snapped in half. A blinding flash lit the dungeons as the ensorcelled magic exploded, catapulting both vampires away from each other.
Raising his head Graveclaw quickly scrambled back to his feet, rapidly blinking as he tried to clear the hot white after images from his mind. Out of the haze the vision of Magneqrox reared before him,
“You bastard,” he hissed, “That blade is irreplaceable. I’m going to rip you apart.” A flaming fist smashed into Graveclaw’s chin with a sickening force. It was strong enough to snap his head back, and he could felt his mouth full of a sickly mixture of blood and teeth.
Staggering back, the Strigoi lashed out with his claws and was rewarded with a painful howl. His claws were tougher than steel, and as sharp as any blade. Finally managing to look at his foe, he saw the reason for the cry of pain. His claws had ripped through Magneqrox’s protective scales, and taken half of his face with them. A ghastly visage of bloody bone looked at him from one side, whilst the other looked with its single hate filled eye.
There was no more time for words as Magneqrox shoulder charged Graveclaw him into the wall. The pain of being crushed was enough to give him pause, which Magneqrox took full advantage of. Gripping the Strigoi, he used his weight to swing him round and slam him again into the wall. This time it was echoed by a nasty crunch as something broke, followed by a grunt of pain from Graveclaw.
Lashing out again, Graveclaw tried in vain to realise Magneqrox’s grip, but the other vampire was ready this team. As the muscled arm whistled past his head, he swiftly caught it by its wrist, half twisting and locking it straight. A hammer blow to the exposed elbow followed, and with a gristly crunch the join was forced out of its socket.
Graveclaw let loosed an inhuman cry of agony, his body twisting and buckling from fire that burned within his nerves. As much as he tried Magneqrox could not keep hold of the writhing monstrous shape, within seconds he was thrown off and landed with a thump.
As much as the pain was overwhelming, Graveclaw knew he could not allow Magneqrox to win. He would have his revenge against the Blood Dragon, and the vampire sprawled in the dirt was the only one who could tell Graveclaw where to find him. Gripping his useless lolling arm, he forced himself to ignore the blackness that threatened to overcome him. A stifled cry escaped his mouth as he forced the join back into its socket. The sound was horrific, enough to make Magneqrox wince as he stood up from the ground.
But that didn’t stop him from taking advantage whilst his opponents back was turned . With a leap he lashed out with a powerful blow to Graveclaw’s ribs, the force enough to snap the ribs on impact, the sharp white point of one bone rupturing through the skin. This time it was not enough to stop the massive vampire and nasty blow collided with Magneqrox’s head.
Slamming back down to the ground he looked to up to see Graveclaw looming over, before a ham like foot slammed down into his skin. A whip-like crack shot out as the bone was broken, ripping through the leg in a crimson mess,
“Tell Graveclawssssss now!!” the Strigoi bellowed, “Where issss Blood Dragonssss?!!” Through the veil of anger Graveclaw failed to see the glowing light that had sprung up in Magneqrox’s eyes. Opening his mouth he did not answer Graveclaw, but instead belched forth a gout of superheated flame.
Graveclaw didn’t stand a chance of dodging it, and he shrieked as the searing fire enveloped him. Running down the corridor he panicked in terror as the fire started to consume and blacken his body, before he dropped to ground, writhing and wriggling in an attempt to douse the flames. After a few tense moments they died down until the last of the glowing embers winked out.
What was left was a horrific mess. Most of Graveclaw’s skin had been burnt black, blood was pouring out of various wounds and it was a testament to his vampiric abilities he was still moving. Slowly raising his head, he saw the blurry form of Magneqrox limping down the tunnel to his freedom, yet even has he tried to summon the strength to give chase he drifted into unconsciousness.

Some hours later Graveclaw awoke every part of his body raged in pain, growling he drug himself to his feet. His right arm hung useless at his side,his skin was blackened and burnt, his broken ribs ground about inside him. "Musssst flee need to ssssleep to heal" he wispered before tuning and fleeing into the night.
