Walking calmly into the Forest Arena, Samiir stretched a bit and looked around. The trees were a good change of pace from the wholly artificial zero gravity dome he had his last match in. The forest put him at ease. At the same time, the Neo Pakistani fighter thought it was a shame that much of the landscape was about to be torn up. The prophet was recorded as saying that people who plant trees would be rewarded for their charity in heaven. Luckily, he didn't say much about trees getting damaged during war.
Slowly pulling out his kanda and taking a wide fighting stance, Samiir called out to his opponent, "I hate to ruin the atmosphere but I'm ready to fight when you are."
