Well now throw that spear or let him tell how bad ass she is. He'll probably lie. Go on throw the spear it's easier than chasing him down.

Actually, I think that it's a good idea if she kills him. Her former host is in charge of this species and is on the lookout for her. Even distorted, I'm sure that he would recognise the description.

Actually her former host, Tyranos, is in charge of the Mag Leung (hairy dog people). These are Mag Cheng. They live underground and have little contact with the Leung.

Problem is, Unity's body is human, not Minkie, nor Mag Leung, nor Mag Cheng, nor Dalai. Humans have shorter legs and can't normally run that fast.

Question is: Does Essential's control of the body allow her to push it further than is normally possible for humans? Maybe ignore some pain and stress? Perhaps control of the adrenals to really get that adrenaline pumping? Can she run faster than Crystyn could?

I remember hearing stories how, rarely, people can sometimes exhibit superhuman strength or feats if pushed to extremes - in life or death situations. Such as righting a car or lifting debris off a loved one. This is usually attributed to adrenaline.

In chapter 2 Eloma said that flat footed humans are slower than Minkies. Also the Mag people can run on all fours when needed.

Her implants allow her to optimize motor coordination (inter/intra-limb and eye-hand) and control some internal organ functions, such as the flow of adrenaline (which can increase strength for a short time), but they don't add any muscle mass. And her brain can calculate exact trajectories in microseconds. For most of us hitting a 90 mph fastball would be impossible but to her it would be like in slow motion.

Slowing people down with a long blade

Throwing a Katana isn't easy, but she has two of them.
All she has to do is injure him, by aiming at the centre of the seen mass, be it chest or legs.
Once injured, even slightly, by a long sharp blade, trust me, you will slow down.
More so if the blade actually penetrates.
Then hunt the injured critter down, with your other blade.
Failing that, pick up the other blade on your way past it and hunt him down with both.

Fist sized Rocks also work, like dodge-ball, but nastier.

She should have had Signos steal her some handguns and be done with it. :)
