My Job has recently landed me in Los Angelas and I was strolling through the area when I saw a humbly clad man sitting on a bench. If I wasn't such a fan I would have never noticed it was him. I still wasn't sure but I approached him and he confirmed he was Lyoto. He was very pleasant and welcoming, making several jokes about being "under cover". He signed a receipt I had without hesitation, I figured I'd try and take him on some martial arts talk (how often does a chance like this happen?) which he gladly allowed. We talked simple things such as training, his philosophies on the martial arts and where he feels he is in his career. After a little bit he asked me about a certain tattoo I have on my arm. I explained it away, but he wouldn't budge. Finally I had to stand up and say "What is this all about". He pulled up his sleeve and revealed the same tattoo. However, he had the mark of a deserter on his tattoo, a scar given by the elders to those who spit on the clan....I had no idea, but I should have known all along. The rule of my clan is simple: If encountered by a deserter. You must challenge them to a death fight. Knowing I was at a disadvantage, I still challenged him. Knowing his fate, he accepted and we agreed to meet on top of a roof. At first I was struck by his grappling power. But, being in a life or death situation, I had already grabbed dust into my hand. after blinded him I smacked him in the kneecap with a spare wrench I found on the ground of the roof. After obtaining a dominant position, I decided to spare him, as long as he never revealed his tattoo again. This is why he hasn't fought in a while.
