Played way too much D&D where the cleric was reduced to this kind of situation.... ;D
Vald (after his health is up to 50%): ENOUGH! I was just gonna HOLD BACK see'n as how your my own ASSISTANT an'all but you've SERIOUSLY pushed the extent of my CHEESE DOODLE! Naturally when I think I'm forgiven, and then you'll see it this time!
The Assistant:...ummm...CHEESE DOODLE?
Vlad: DON'T YOU ASKING OF MEANING THE WORDS SAID THAT I ALREADY KNEW YOU ASS KICK OF DAMMIT COURSE NOT! (faints and loses consciousness)
Reminds me of Magica (the game). Healing sword slashes are quite effective. And when your heal target is under shield the shield magick is just one button away... BOOM.
