Berix raised his/her oddly colored weapons and glanced around- He/she didn't see anything threatening. Just the dwellings in the Ga-Village (Which hopefully looked something like this)
All of a sudden, a blur of tan rocketed at Berix faster than he/she could see. Zesk, leader of the Po-Tribe, glared down menacingly with his four eyes at the crumpled heap that was the Ga-Tribesman. The back of his/her head had been hit by the muscular tale of Zesk with a tremendous and sickening thud.
The four-legged being looked up at Tarix with a surprised look on his mask-helmet-face-whatever. He had expected Berix to be alone
With a roar of rage, Tarix rushed at his small foe and swiped at him with his powerful Energy Blades. Zesk jumped back, however, and the blades passed through empty air. The bestial tan being began to run off, and the angry Glatorian chased after him waving his weapons. The dog-like creature was too fast, though, and after a while Zesk fled into the foliage and Tarix was unable to pursue him further.
He returned to the fallen Berix, who was lying dead or unconscious on the rocks. He approached and poked him/her with his bright blue, limited-articulation hands and dreaded that Berix might not wake back up. He/she did, however, and looked up at the Glatorian.
"Are we safe?" He/she asked nervously.
"For now," Replied Tarix. "Good to see you're alive. I thought Zesk hit you pretty hard."
"Yeah," Began Berix. "But my mask-helmet is more helmet than mask. Hence the enormous part on the back and the complete lack of anything on the front."
Tarix stared a bit and marveled uncomfortably at how weird that thing on Berix's head looked. Like a translucent blue snail sucking out his/her brain. It was good protection, though, apparently. More importantly, though, he now knew that the Po-Tribe, and by extension the Onu-Tribe with which they were allied, were enemies of the Ga-Village. He would have to set up defenses and be prepared to defeat Skrall and Vorox at the next contest...

An explosion shook the earth behind Skrall and he turned around to see Gresh under attack by...
