I'd like to get a little practice in writing fight scenes, of all varieties. I'm looking for a quick-post thread, with individual posts being maybe 200-250 words on average (that number takes a little over five minutes to write at an average typing speed). I have specific characters I'd like to use, which I'll list below. In terms of the outcome... I don't really care whether we decide beforehand who wins or just write the scene and see what happens. Either way, the idea is for each fight to last a few hours of total writing time, no more, and quite possibly less. If we could plan it so that we're both on at the same time and could post back and forth almost immediately, that would be awesome.
Nicodemus is a werewolf who has not one, but four alternate forms. The forms other than human all serve a different purpose. One is the form of a normal wolf, another is a lion-sized wolf built for power, another is a hulking mostly-bipedal mix of wolf and human (see "Underworld" for an accurate example), and the last is a mostly-human form with slightly greater strength, faster reflexes, and sharper senses. Weapons used: Maybe a knife at the beginning. Otherwise only items at hand.
Remy de Montagne is a chevalier and defender of his queen and country. He is moving toward the age of retirement, but any physical slowing down he might show is made up for with skill and hard-earned experience. He wears armor, and fights from horseback as long as possible before dismounting. Weapons used: Lance, sword.
Vincent "Vinny Shots" Agnello is a mob enforcer who takes orders from the Boss, and no one else. He acts as a hitman sometimes, while other times he just gets sent out to deal a little violence as a warning. Experienced, cool under pressure and with a lot to lose, Vinny is one of the most dangerous men in the Big Apple. His main physical weakness is his bad knee. Weapons used: handgun, knife, items at hand, fists.
Jin is a martial artist who uses a combination of watchful defence and explosive offence to wear his opponents down and then defeat them quickly. He is determined and focused, with youth on his side, but is not experienced in combat outside of sparring matches. Weapons used: Staff, fists, items at hand.
Rena Valance is a warrior who fights best from the back of Hecate, her fire-breathing wyvern. She uses ferocity and aggressive aerial maneuvering to get rid of an enemy quickly, but her tactics can leave her mount tired and vulnerable if the fight drags on too long. She is heavily armored, and though she prefers not to she can use a sword on the ground. Weapons used: Shortbow, longknife, sword.

I am open to fights involving magical/supernatural beings as well. I don't count Nicodemus or Rena in this category because although they do have fantastical elements, neither actually uses magic of any variety. If you'd like to do a magical/psychic/etc battle, I'd like to discuss the "rules of the world" first so we don't have any misunderstandings, but otherwise I'm completely open to the idea and do have character ideas for that as well.
I also have other ideas for types of combat: fencing, sword&board, axe or mace, etc aren't mentioned above, and would be interesting as well. The only thing I'm not really interested in doing is a long-range combat or fight whose combatants depend on attacking from the shadows.
This is for fun, but also for improvement (at least on my end), so if we start the roleplay and there's something you see that could definitely be improved, let me know. If you want similar feedback from me, let me know and I'd be happy to help you improve as best I can as well.
