The large rock formation exploded in a blast of dust and rubble, reducing the once proud rock into a smocking stump. It was now one of the many pieces of scenery in the Saiba Wastes that were now reduced to smoking rubble and craters. The beasts of the wasteland had long since cleared out, realizing that it was safer to flee, rather than stick around. Even if the cause in question was merely blasting the surrounding landscape.
Ochra was completely silent, letting his hand fall to his side. As his golden eyes rested on the destroyed rock, his mind kept going back to the mechanical leg that replaced his original one. Once they had gotten back to Vegeta, they had fitted him with a prosthetic one. Not even a particularly strong one as well. While Kayen had gone to the trouble to drag him back to Vegeta for treatment, her courtesy had gone only as far as that. No super powered robotic leg for Ochra. Though even if it had been strong, it still served as a bitter reminder of what had happened to him.
He could remember a time when he was confident in his abilities. He could take on entire criminal organizations by himself. He felt like there was nothing he couldn't do. But as of late, things had been taking a drastic turn. People were getting stronger. Much stronger. And Ochra, he had gotten weaker. Sure, he had gotten stronger as well, but compared to everyone else, he had fallen behind. It had started with his defeat in Satan City, which cost him his tail. And now, he had been beaten soundly by someone several times weaker than him. Someone who managed to slice his leg off. And now, here he was, a cripple, in a barren wasteland.
What had happened to him? He had wanted to become stronger in order to protect those he cared about, to protect the innocent. But it was seeming more and more like he was being left behind, by selfish and cruel people. What was it? How were they getting stronger so quickly, while he remained weak and powerless? He quietly looked down at his hand, not saying a word, before throwing another ki blast, a pile of rubble exploding in all directions.
