The energy didn't belong to a shinigami, but that of a hollow. And where there were hollow, Shinigami were sure to follow. Markus jumped, his strength carrying him a good distance through the air before he started to fall and his Icarus dash slowed him down before landing on a roof. The hollow was in the street below, chasing a young man. He cornered the kid and almost caught a hold of him, when a shinigami appeared and cut into the hollow's back with his sword.
The hollow roared and spun, slamming his large fist into the shinigami's face, sending the woman flying. Roaring, it charged and tried to crush her beneath a double fisted slam. It reminded Markus of a gorilla, only not as smart. The shinigami rolled to the side, and was thrown by force of impact hitting the ground. She flew into the wall. Markus drew Talon his signature pistol while this was happening, and loaded it with explosive rounds. He dropped to the ground with an impact that cracked the path loud enough for the hollow to hear him. It turned towards him as he crossed the street, casually raised his pistol, and shot it in the eye.
Normally the explosive round wouldn't go very deep, but it burst through the soft flesh and weak bone of the hollow's eye socket. It let out a screaming roar, started to charge, and then its head exploded. It stumbled and fell past Markus as he approached the shinigami. "Good, your mostly unharmed." He said, and slammed Talon's handle guard into the side of the woman's head, knocking her out cold. He caught her as she fell, and threw her over his shoulder. "Its nothing personal. But I need to lure out someone stronger than you." He said.
Leaving her Zanpakuto behind, he got a firm grip on the shinigami and jumped to the roof above. Then, jumping from rooftop to rooftop he put some distance between himself and where the hollow attacked, heading for a prearranged location. Someone would come looking for her when they found her weapon, and hopefully it would be a strong someone. Otherwise he might be knocking out allot more shinigami, and come to regret taking this contract.
