————————————— New Scene —————————————
 
The city of Olde Watch is a modern marvel of Hellifyno. It is a place of towering skyscrapers, glass domes, and unique architecture that belies the human nature of the landscape. However, it is also one that is noticeably militant. There are watchtowers everywhere, not just on the perimeter, but throughout the city,, and soldiers march the streets patrolling for any signs of danger or intrusion. It is a city on edge. One lit with flying cars and and portal rails, but one also masked with militant overtones that subdue everything into a kind of cold and desperate chill. The Senate building is the grandest of the structures in this city. It is led up to by a hundred avenues and ways that light through the grounds and the skies. It is a structure of stone and steel, glass and marble, all ignited by shining spotlights that serve to cast it in imperial shades of illumination, even as foreboding shadows of control and authority are cast upon the streets below. Within, the light of the night and its many stars shimmers in and is reflected and refracted upon a million million tiny mirrors, creating a universe in the rafters above the looming chamber that is the Senate hall. Crimson velvet is the tone of the space, the carpets dripping with the blood red hues, and a thousand men and women stand and sit and hover in their tiers, the great congressional conglomerate, waiting to view. While down below, at the focus of everything, is the dais and the speakers stage. The place where the guilty and the innocent stand. Where the lawmakers give their oratory epics, and the peoples of many lands, plead their ways. Today, tables have been set up, tables for the great and mighty to sit, to speak, and to discuss the wages of war that have ravaged these Hellifynian lands.

3/15 10:32PM
For now the senate of Olde watch contends itself with smaller, private conversations, broken into groups across the floor and through the tiers. Ancient spokesmen of the city debate, in quiet, languid tones, the fates of the poor and mighty, the state of civil repair and economic reform. There is little talk of the war. That is soon to come, and in this open session, there is no telling who may be listening. But here, in this hallowed place of power, perhaps more than in any part of this beleaguered and on edge city, there is a sense of anxious anticipation, as if something were coming, the other shoe ready to drop, the sword of Damocles ready to strike. This creates an air of urgency to even the most minimal and trivial conversations on sewage in the southern districts.

3/15 10:35PM
A purple portal opened up at the very edge of the city, as the Scion of Hellifyno used her portal coin to transverse the distance and visit the people of Olde Watch. She wore her orange and yellow robes, with her right Gaian arm wrapped in white covering; otherwise she had no weapons or armor. Crimson orbs looked around the magnificent architecture with slight amazement, as this was Anthem’s first time here in the ancient city the military overtone caught her by surprise. She stepped forward and down one of the avenues, flanked of course by her companions as they headed towards the Senate to discuss the talk of peace.
 
Gwen Poole
 
3/15 10:38PM
Right behind the Scion of Hellifyno was the Pink Champion herself, Gwen Poole, all done up in a new suit of armor and sporting her usual weapons. She seemed to be fairly confident in herself from how she walked. She only had one job here; watch Anthem’s back. And given she’d just gotten her friend and mentor back from the grave after not being able to do so once before, she was taking that duty very seriously.

3/15 10:44PM
While the city of Olde Watch is militant, on guard. The Senate house is surprisingly free of any defensive measures, soldiers, or even guards. It is just aged men and women, all debating, all clothed in prestige. And these are quieting down into their seats now as the summit begins. It seems, to those least moral of you, that one could kill the entire congregation with one blow and few repercussions. It is a strange affair, and the senators themselves seem to recognize it, unease sitting heavy upon the democratic body, as talks turn to murmurs and the air clears for the debates to come.
 
Kaito Tsuikia the Immortal
 
3/15 10:48PM
Kaito would appeared within the chamber. He was in his most formal attire and had a Tablet with him. It was clear he was angry. He stepped towards Anthem and handed her the tablet. “Before you begin Watch this” It was a video footage of the attack on the All Corp station. Kaito had magnified the vocals of the suiciced bombers at the begging.

// Vergil appears from a portal in the senate room, the left side of his demon form black from the explosion, He sheathes his sword at his left side. // ” If you want peace then you must surreneder the criminal guilty of these crimes and attacks..”// Vergil’s voice was deep and demonic.// .

3/15 10:50PM
A senator coughs, unobtrusively, and yet it intrudes on Kaito’s words. “That act of terrorism was not condoned by the Senate or the people of Olde Watch. It was a criminal act, one we all voted to condemn and one which should be punished by the terrorist cell that initiated it.”
 
“We offer our full support in the investigation.”
 
Kida Le Morte
 
3/15 10:53PM
*a small baseball sized glasscom portal opened beside anthem, kidas face appeared through it, she too wanted to hear what was to be said. But refused to sit in the same room who demands death for death, she stayed silent though*

3/15 10:53PM
Kaito would look to the Senate. “What proof is there that you’re not lying to us? The words are clear” he frowned “Glory to the Watch, not to one man but the Watch. From my perspective this means you.”

” How do we know you are not lying and are protecting the criminal/ What proof do you have for us?” // Vergil asks.the senate.//
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
3/15 10:54PM
Soon the Scion did arrive into the Senate, looking around to the men and women in power. This is who she needed to plead her case too, and maybe in his building they could stop the bloodshed. She nodded towards Kaito, then waited quietly and patiently while he showcased the video. It was hard to tell if the senator was telling the truth or not, Anthem hated politics. She was surprised to hear that this meeting would be open to the world, so she wondered who else would appear. “Well met, your honors.” She stated outloud, a closed right fist into an open left palm as she bowed at the waist. “Sir.” She stated to Kaito. “All in due time, yeah?” Hostility was not going to save the day.

3/15 10:54PM
The ANFE emitters have been shut off. portals are freely accessible, at least here, in the Senate building. Beyond, the city is locked down, thwarting all but the most clever attempts to portal in. But at least in this one hall, magic is welcome to appear, or vanish, at a whim, and with the full consent of the Senate to speak and voice their opinions.

3/15 10:55PM
*Well, with the positioning of things here, the Twine Mother was joined with another face that watched through the portal. This was Kaler, and his eyes looked around the building in a curious way, spotting Anthem along the way. He was nervous, obviously, as were many others, but maybe if things went ok here, they would in the rest of the system*

3/15 10:56PM
The body of the Senate, 1,000 men and women strong, stand in accord and nod their heads, a sign of respect as the Scion of Helifyno enters their hallowed halls. They then sit again, waiting for the minister of the proceedings to arrive.
 
Kaito Tsuikia the Immortal
 
3/15 10:58PM
Kaito backed off and looked to Anthem. “I’m not here with hostility, rather I’m here for answers.” He sighed “I was once a ruler so I know how diplomacy works and how to conduct myself in these types of situations”

3/15 10:58PM
A quiet falls across the floor. A hush of anticipation, all previous conversations coming to an end as 1,000 sets of eyes stare down at the Senate floor.

3/15 10:59PM
Kaito grew silent as well herring the quiet.

Gwen Poole
 
3/15 10:59PM
“Let’s let the Scion of Hellifyno do the talking, my dudes…” Gwen pointed at Anthem in case they didn’t know who she was talking about. “She’s the one that wanted to talk this out, so let HER do the talking. You guys stand here and look tough with me.”

Randall Wayne
 
3/15 11:00PM
And late, as he seems to be doing a lot lately, is how Randall arrived. Of course by portal coin which wa almost likely the excuse. Hey. If a client was going to make talks that would most likely affect an active contract then he surely would like to know. In his own personal Mk.2 MSF Armor variant and armed only with his revolver. Decided not to waste any time he moved towards Gwen and Anthem to let them both know the disheveled man was present albeit late.
 
Krieger DM
 
3/15 11:04PM
He took his stand and looked about to all those in attendance. “Greetings. I am Krieger. Some of you knew me at one point as Dorian Corwin. A lie that was even told to me.” He looked around and stared at all those there, his eyes hidden behind his skull plated gas mask. “Tonight we are here to discuss recent events, and to move forward to peace. One that would lead, hopefully, to the saving of billions of lives.” He waited and put gloved hands on the podium. “Before we start, and get to the first part of the agenda, I would like to state, openly and clearly, that the attack that happened on the ALL Corp station is a tragedy. It was not a sanctioned attack, but done by a rogue cell. We are already about finding ways to compensate the innocents lost and make amends to their families.”
 
Kaito Tsuikia the Immortal
 
3/15 11:05PM
Kaito would Ball his fist but remain silent. He felt like the man just began a summit with a lie. Though for the sake of peace he would hold his tongue.
 
Kida Le Morte
 
3/15 11:05PM
*kidas portal turned to face Krieger and then back to anthem, her face seemed less than pleased, hoping that the scion wouldn’t believe this…still remaining silent though*
 
Kaler Eland
 
3/15 11:07PM
*Feeling he shouldn’t utter a word here, nor much sound just yet; since he had little idea of /what/ to day; he turned his head to Kida with a worried expression. He wanted to believe that, but at the same time he wasn’t so sure he could. It was a mixed feeling, not sitting right with his stomach*
 
Krieger DM
 
3/15 11:08PM
“If words don’t prove it. We have found the sect’s leader. And if it would please you.” He waited as two guards dragged a man with a bag over his head near Krieger. “State your crimes.” The man spoke out, and those who could sense it would sense he speaks truthfully, “I am being called a traitor for wishing to be a patriot, for having my brothers and sisters lead the charge.” Krieger waited, and drew his side arm and pointed it at the man. “He broke our anti-aggression pact, and Olde Watch does believe in doling out justice if nothing else. What say you all here?”
 
Randall Wayne
 
3/15 11:10PM
“Whatever happened to the ALLCorp ships doesn’t matter right now. We cant be biased at this Parlay. So it would be best of to bring up the the topic until the main subject of this… summit is concluded…” Randall simply spoke. Mainly towards Anthem as he was apparently a temporary Advisor and Head of security for the moment. Though he did talk loud enough for all to hear. Continuing to remain respectful.
 
*not to
 
Kida Le Morte
 
3/15 11:11PM
*kida frowned and spoke up, maybe above anthem herself, and if so she would apologize later* dont….dont kill him… *kida looked to Krieger from the glasscom portal* you cannot blame one for being trained a certain way…. you blame the leader who instilled the hatred and anger into them….. *she then quieted down as she let anthem do the rest of the talking*

// Vergil looks up at the male that was talking with his golden reptilian eyes.// ” Explain on how to compensate those lost and amend with the families I would love to hear how. those that were lost can’t come back.”

3/15 11:12PM
Kaito spoke up “How can we believe you when the men and women who did this act all Declare glory to the Watch!” He then turned to Randal. “And it wasn’t just All Corp there were innocent civilian refugees aboard that station!”
 
Gwen Poole
 
3/15 11:12PM
“Shhh, dummies!” Gwen went to just nudge Kaito with an elbow. “Let ANTHEM do the talking.”
 
Krieger DM
 
3/15 11:12PM
“There where also Olde Watch citizens killed that had nothing to do with the attack.” his words directed to Kaito, without looking to him, as he waited for Anthem.

3/15 11:13PM
Crimson eyes followed the man of the hour himself, Kreiger previously known as Dorian Corwin. She took a deep sigh as he spoke and addressed them all. Denying culpability by blaming it on a rouge cell? That was one hell of a coincidence considering the circumstances, a tall glass to swallow. Then they brought a man out a man out, who didn’t exactly claim responsibility on the station. “I’d say in the interest of peace, there’d be no more violence; this man included. Furthermore, my associate is correct, the ALL Corp station is an ongoing matter with inconclusive circumstances at best.” She stated loudly, moving forward to a podium herself to speak from.

Kaito stood back. To let Anthem speak.

She appears just in the nick of time to witness a man about to be shot. Great! This’ll definitely not damper her mood! Wearing a black hoodie with a pair of black jeans. Closest thing she can get to fancy, this is. Her hair is parted to the left, and her eyes scan the room and everyone in it with a slightly /concerned/ expression.

A murmuring amongst the Senators. But they hold their tongues in open court, allowing the minister of the evening, their General Commander, to speak as one for them. For now.
 
Randall Wayne
 
3/15 11:16PM
“A fine example of what I meant. Things like that tend to sway opinions…” a glare to Kaito. “Just as your demonstratin’…. I mean look at ya, your a mess. Now please, hold the outbursts…” Still attempting to keep up the propriety for the evening. Deciding to just… shimmy beside The Scion just in case he needs to say something for her ears. One hand over the other in front of him.
 
Krieger DM
 
3/15 11:17PM
“How is peace brought? With someone losing their head, be it one or many. The Tree of Liberty is, after all, watered with the blood of tyrants and patriots, criminals and the just.” He waited for a moment. “Fine, I will postpone his summery execution for now.” He signaled for those to take away the man. “And for the question of compensation, food and amenities will be supplied to the any remaining relatives, from our stores.” He cleared his throat. “Now then, for the matter at hand. Some of you fought against my uncle, Wilhelm Krieger, and some of you fought alongside my father, Meinolf. Both seen as extremists by our brethren in Olde Watch for a willingness to work with magical beings.” He waited again. “Well, those same magical beings doomed them. As they doomed our city on many occasions. And yet, Watchmen are persecuted just for the disdain for magic, something that has only brought suffering to us.”
 
Kaito Tsuikia the Immortal
 
3/15 11:18PM
Kaito ignored Randall, it was best not to fight among people who are currently considered allies, let alone infront of their current opponents. He would however begin to calm himself, Randal was right about one thing, this was not proper behavior worthy of a peace Summit.

Kaito would look to Vergil. “Gwen has a point, let Anthem do the talking for now. When she is done we can have our turns”

3/15 11:25PM
She shakes her head, not exactly agreeing with his words.. He has basically just admitted to being okay with some cruel actions for the sake of what? Because the man doesn’t like magical beings? Zoey’s got half the mind to blow this man’s brains out where he stands.. Though, that might be out of the fact that she’s had alot to be mad about recently.

3/15 11:25PM
The Senate is not one voice. It is one thousand minds, each with different opinions and outlooks. They stand here united, this night. But there are misgivings, there are dissensions, there are plots within plots that they use to stab at one another’s throats and backs. That is what might be heard by their murmuring. The misgivings of the few, the reassurances of the many. The quiet conversations on how each turn of phrase during this meeting might make one Senator rich, and another bankrupt, due to interests on this moon or that. It is a jumble, no clear conclusion save a sense of faith in the General that speaks before them to this congregation of the others.

3/15 11:25PM
“Hey!” A loud whisper as Randall now looked to Vergil. “Please… once the Scion speaks, then we may each give our piece.”

3/15 11:31PM
Anthem nodded her head towards Kreiger. “Thank you.” She replied as her request was honored. They offered compensation which was a nice sentiment to those who survived and/or the families of the dead. “I will admit that I wasn’t familiar with your family, but what you say is of public record. They had untimely deaths, doomed by those with power. Just like the thousands of our countrymen, eaten alive and repurposed to serve the Void and other agendas.” She started, hearing the whispering behind her of the open court and ignoring it as she focused on the General Commander of the Watch. “Persecution in all forms unacceptable, no matter where you hail from or what you can do. Your disdain of magic is founded and understandable, but the wanton murder of innocents is not. And there should be justice for it.”
 
“But I move to this court, that death isn’t truly justice. Just sanctioned murder.”

3/15 11:34PM
Kaito was watching Krieger closely, looking at his reactions to Anthems words. He woils remain silent, but felt uneasy about the man who spoke for this senate.

3/15 11:35PM
*kida watched through the portal again as she held her tongue… she wanted to say so much…about this mans uncle… his father was a good person and didn’t deserve to die.. but his uncle… oh.. his uncle deserved way more than death…. but she just stayed quiet. occasionally looking away from the portal*

Kaler Eland
 
3/15 11:35PM
[Now there was a voice he could trust. That’s the sort of thing he could agree upon with Anthem; fearing magic is just, murdering people with zombies is certainly not. In a way, with how tense things were and the quietness of it all, Kaler let his hearing fan out a little. Idle chattering as they may be, he liked to listen to all the odds & ends of the 1000s of senators that mumbled so quietly. Though main focus was on Anthem, & Krieger]
 
Zoey, Lily, And Vera Tompkins (Vietnow Radio)
 
3/15 11:37PM
Huh.. Well worded.. Zoey should take notes, cause holy shit is Vietnow lacking in comparison. Her focus now goes to Krieger, wondering what he’ll decide to reply with..
 
Krieger DM
 
3/15 11:38PM
“And there shall, but what about the threat that still stands?” He didn’t mean the zombies, and his point was still clear. “We demanded the heads of only two, Ruby Bloodfang, and Aero of ALL Corp. When we could of requested any and all who work willingly and happily for the fox. Your guard included.” He points to Randall. “The fact that we didn’t just go and take them out by force was a show of good faith.” He took a moment and sipped a drink with a straw. “But you also cannot claim to be against extra judicial action, for I have heard tale of you, as well Scion. But compared to some of the others, you are a noble sort. He could feel Kida’s eyes upon him, even through the portal he knew. “We demanded Aero and Ruby be brought to the block because there would be no other way to continue otherwise. Who knows what he is doing to that child Soulless or not. Even my uncle remained unable to harm a child. But you let someone who you attempted to kill yourself run free, and her compatriots stand at your side. No, we did not sanction the attack on ALL Corp tonight, but I do wish that it shows to Aero that if our untrained citizens can get to him, it means our soldiers can… and will… protect our planet from him, and the menace of the Fox.”

3/15 11:42PM
It was difficult to stomach all of what was going on…the deaths…the destruction…but who will truly avenge all of those killed? Nobody. No one can ever avenge those who have died, but focused instead on those who have lived. This moment was what he ws waiting for…all of the waiting and planning…preparing and stocking…all for the perfect moment for the kill. Croc for amoment, would be the vessel of all of the billions- no, trillions killed under his hand. “FOR VENGEANCE!” He hissed out, breaking his camo for just a moment, crouched behind the pews to deliver a shot right into Krieger’s skull, charged and empowered by the fury of the dead. As quickly as the shot was delivered, his portal was already restored, a location only he would truly know where of, not looking a the shocked faces as he vanished off. The dead, have been avenged.

“Persecution for the simple disdain of somethin’ is o’ course unwarranted. And o’ Course unfair to your people. But I can not speak for those who did such to you as I know little or simply don’t represent them.” The man spoke once Anthem was finished. “However once that…. ‘disdain’ brews into hatred? Radicalism? That’s when issues occur.” He simply stated until he pointed him out and spoke of his ‘show of good faith’. A faint roll of the eyes present. “Oh please. If you truly want to go to the extent of my company we-“

Anthem stopped for a moment to think and consider her next words, looking up at the men and women in the stands as they clapped for Kreiger. That was a valid point he made, and Ruby was definitely an example to why the fear and eventual repulsion of anyth…Without warning there was a gun shot fired from a portal. “NOO!!” The Scion explained, jumping over the poduim and to Kreiger himself.

The entire hall is chaos as there are people moving. Soldiers now begin to rush into the hall they once left vacant. The Senate floor is filled with black uniformed men and women with guns, glowing green at the tips. More drop from the ceiling. All the while the rush of Senators is mad, crazed, as if a dam of anxiety had broken to let the flood waters of panic rush through the hallowed halls.
 
Krieger DM
 
3/15 11:45PM
In the chaos, a small group of soldier go to their leader, ANFE riot shields held in front. They wished to keep their leader’s body untouched. A captain called up. “Scans already showing vid feed. Croc, ex contractor under Wilhelm, known traitor during Ar’Elis… Send troops to hunt him down.”

[And just when things were going smoothly, this happens. One single shot causes an uproar by the looks of it. Kaler’s eyes widened, fearing the worst would come from this. And it seemed so with the troops who began to fill the room. But, they were only after the one guy, right? Or?] Gosh dang it…. [He too looked to Anthem, agreeing with Kida’s motions]

3/15 11:45PM
Seems like this might just be sided to Kreiger- She stops for a solid second, and eyes Kreiger… “Son of a bitch!” Her psionic energy flares up, and she begins to attempt figuring out who did this. Her energy flowing through the stands and scanning them for some form of firearm… Up until she’s now pushed through the crowds. Isn’t until she makes one solid stomp and a shield forms around her that she’s actually safe from being ran over.

“Gh!” And now.. She falls to her knees, grabbing at the side of her head as her powers are shut down, and she is left with a sudden shock of pain.. The other half is silenced, even.. She stumbles towards the nearest wall, or railing, something to support her stance.. God damnit, this hurts.

3/15 11:47PM
[At the notice of that he practically yanked Kida’s arm back as the portal quickly closed up on them, to avoid her becoming injured. Heck, he felt a stinging from that ANFE, but soon they were gone. Anthem with? Or without? They would figure out in a moment…]

The Hope stopped short of the Kreiger body, a series of riot shield guards stopping her. She step back towards Gwen and Randall, taking deep sighs as she felt the vibrations of the ANFE through the air… Until she didn’t. Crimson eyes stayed peeled, there was no way she was leaving now; it would make her seem guilty and this wasn’t the case. Even if she wanted too, she was closer to the bodies then the portals before they were snapped shut.

Vergils demonic eyes would dim to that of mere mortal rage, the magic seeping from him as the ANFE waves take effect.

“Soooo…” Gwen put her hands up. “Did we all just see that none of us have guns in our hands to shoot people with?”

3/15 11:50PM
She falls, now on her back gasping for air.. “Fuck’s sake..” Her mind is quickly trying to rework it’s self, to resist the ANFE, only causing more pain inside her head. She tries to roll to her side to push herself up, though only gets as far as a slight shift. So.. She just sits there, trying to think of ways to stop the pain in her head..

A few Watchmen are talking “How long till the next body is ready?” “A few days… we weren’t expecting an assassin.” “Dammit.” The stood there and the two officers looked about, radioing out “Alright, Speaker of the senate, your plan?”

3/15 11:51PM
A sergeant shouts out above the screaming and the chaos. “EVERYONE WILL BE DETAINED AND QUESTIONED. KEEP THE PEACE. KEEP THE CALM. WATCH HAS THINGS UNDER CONTROL.” There are soldiers everywhere now. Crowding in. Like a war zone with just one casualty.
 
Gwen Poole
 
3/15 11:53PM
Chaos wasn’t good. Chaos was never good at tense times like this, which is why Gwen moved through it all, still with hands raised, towards Anthem. “Are we going to stay and work this out? What’s the plan, Anthem?”
 
Krieger DM
 
3/15 11:53PM
Rifles up and raised in an instant. Each person would have several men trained on them, riot soldiers moved into place to form a shield wall. The room slowly fell calm as the senate settled with the presence of the soldiers. They kept their eyes trained on those who came for the summit.

And then, an aged woman stands amidst the the chaos and the turmoil in the stands of the flailing Senate. She is but a mortal and yet, she has a sense of gravitas to her. It is not just her age, but an unspoken mantel that rests upon her shoulders. And as she stands she speaks, and her words carry, they travel across and above the din of the madness, they penetrate the frenzy, and there is a sense of command in them that is born, not just of her authority among these people, but of the weight of her force. “Cease now. The violence is done. There is no need for restraint.” And at her words, the soldiers, almost as if programmed, relax, and begin to pull back. Though they still hover by and guard the exists and the doors.

“We called this summit for peace. And that is how we shall proceed. Even when war is brought into this hallowed hall.”

3/15 11:56PM
“Boss!” Gwen looked through the crowd towards Randall. “We gotta ride this one out I think, boss!” That’s what Anthem was saying, at least. Gwen looked at some of the soldiers. “Got nothing to hide, nothing to be guilty about here, soooo we’re all chill here…”

3/15 11:57PM
Randall kinda spaced out since players phone died but is back to reality now! “Huh? Oh yeah… yeah… they better…” he said holstering his pistol and making sure Anthem wasn’t close to any windows of flanking points of entry. Who says she isn’t a target?
 
Zoey, Lily, And Vera Tompkins (Vietnow Radio)
 
3/15 11:57PM
Zoey… Can’t do jack shit. Can’t stand, can’t raise her hands, she is effectively down for the count. Her entire body curled up in a ball on the floor as her mind tries to figure it’s self out again. “T-Turn off the.. Anti..Magic..” She mutters, not quite sure if anyone would hear her. A small plea for.. Something. Her mind is half blank and her vision is mostly blurred. Lily’s gonna have a fit when Zoey gets home..
 
Narrator
 
3/15 11:58PM
The woman begins to step down from the tiers, making her way towards the floor below, one whose crimson carpet is already being stained by the blood of General Commander Krieger’s brains, spilled upon the floor. As she approaches, she raises her skirts so as not to stain them in the life blood, her head shaking in quiet disdain. “And this is why we fight. Do you not see? This…” She motions to the body of their fallen hero. “This is why we cannot ever live in peace.” A soft sigh, a glance at each and every eye.
 
Krieger DM
 
3/15 11:58PM
A soldier speaks to Zoey, “This is ANFE, more useful stuff.” Outside the building, Anti-Sniper teams where on the move.
 
Zoey, Lily, And Vera Tompkins (Vietnow Radio)
 
3/15 11:59PM
Shaking her head, she simply mutters.. “Still.. Hurts like a.. Bitch..” This is draining her more than she realizes. She’s got to focus on getting her basic functions working again.. Not once in her entire life had she considered her mind being too reliant on these damn abilities of hers.

“And now we command some of the most powerful and terrible of the magical monsters of this world. On our very Senate floor. Weakened by our technologies, laid bare beneath our weapons, our means. We could exact our vengeance now and place a bullet in each of your heads.” As she speaks she is already moving towards the body of Krieger, one finger placed upon the wound in his skull, and then, two used to close his ever open eyes, for the last time.

00:01AM
*high above the city, above the olde watch senates halls, a couple of large portals would open as kida frowned and stared into them* attention olde watch….attention olde watch… this is kida le morte.. I wish to address who ever is in charge currently… *the portals that were used were glasscom ones. nothing could get in and if it was forced the portal would shatter…* whoever is in charge.. I beg you to you listen… the shooter who did this was not something we wanted… I do hope you listen to anthem still. we wish for peace.. *kidas voice rang out over the hall* please.. let them go…..
 
Randall Wayne
 
00:01AM
He then looked to Gwen. “Also please help Miss Zoey off the floor….. she looks sick.” He said, recognizing the young woman. Though he did look to The woman over Krieger’s body. “But that shouldn’t be a sole reason. Everybody’s got a bullet out for ‘em no matter the cause. Money, ‘vengeance’, whatever…. just don’t let one dumb, fuckin’, coincidental, assassin try to make yourselves better or victims. Or make those who were respectful and lookin’ for peace at this summit look any worse….”

[Seems their plan B was going ahead. Would Olde Watch listen to the Mother’s pleas? He hoped so, even with how they thought of her. He wanted to add, but, he really didn’t know if that’d be a good idea]

“Shot your moth, fox lover.” A soldier calls to Randall, out of most of them, he was one of the least liked in the room.
 
Narrator
 
00:02AM
Kidas transmissions are cut off instantly. Only the ministry of the interior, the intelligence department, would ever hear them, dissecting them for traces of some exploit they could use. At the same time, a hundred drones are spewed into the air, heading towards the portals that are the source of that Twine born menacing sound.

“And what shall we do with this advantage?”

00:04AM
Two soldiers move in, a medic following, and treat Vergil’s wounds, to at least stabilize him. A chair is brought to Zoey at least. They where intending for piece, at least originally.
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
00:04AM
Anthem was sure to stay away from any windows, looking around for points of entry. “This, I believe, was sabotage. The one who did this is an enemy to us all, an enemy to peace.” then she looked to the woman talking. “perpetuating the circle of violence would only bring a recourse that would involve millons. But of course I am here, we are here. Willingly surrendered in the interest of proper justice.”
 
Zoey, Lily, And Vera Tompkins (Vietnow Radio)
 
00:05AM
Okay, a chair.. Good, she can try and push herself into it. Which takes a long moment, though she does it. Still doesn’t mean she’s not in any pain as she was before..
 
Randall Wayne
 
00:05AM
“Hey, a company has to be funded somehow. It’s how we also keep her in check, punk.” He another roll of the eyes. “They just don’t get it, do they?” He mumbled rhetorically to Gwen and Anthem.
 
Narrator
 
00:05AM
“Surrender.” The woman turns here eyes on Anthem, bemused. “Then surrender you shall.” She raises a hand, and the soldiers standing at every corner, along every wall, and at every exit, raise their rifles, many tipped with the glowing green AM spark. “Surrender, and bow.”
 
Desmond Foles
 
00:05AM
Outside the city, just at the ANFE barrier, stands Desmond. He sighs, walking into the barrier, letting his abilities be shut down. The rush entices a small cough from him, something he’ll hide later. He waves a hand up, intended to get a soldier’s attention…

00:05AM
“Bow before Olde Watch. Bow and show, that you too, know what humility is.”
 
Krieger DM
 
00:06AM
The soldiers that didn’t guard any openings directly where moving the senate hall, also checking the senators themselves for possible tampering. Any soldier that sees Desmond would fire a warning shot. They where on high alert.
 
Gwen Poole
 
00:06AM
“AHEM…” Gwen held up a hand extra high. “I am a faint, mortal human? For the record? If there’s a record?” And she also came up and stood next to Anthem… and then in front of her, protectively. “AND… I knew Meinolf Krieger. He called me, all of us, champions, for standing up to that vampire evil guy. IF we’re going to all talk like we’re the good guys, why can’t we be champions together and stand against actual evil rather than fight among ourselves? Or, at the very least, we don’t have to get in each other’s way.”
 
Narrator
 
00:07AM
“YOU SHALL BOW BEFORE THE SENATE CHILD.” A soldier rushes forward, thrusting down upon Gwen’s shoulders.

00:08AM
[Well, since the portals were above the ANFE field they’d still be heard, right? Or…. maybe not? Either way they couldn’t see in, the solarians super-vision nulled by the gas that surrounded the city. Only thing they could do was try and figure out what to do next, and fear the worse…]

A rifle is placed against Zoeys temple, threatening, then withdrawn, giving her space, space to kneel.
 
Zoey, Lily, And Vera Tompkins (Vietnow Radio)
 
00:08AM
Bow?! How is she- Well, not that she thinks about it, she could.. Though it’ll be a half-assed bow that couldn’t stand up to anything.. So, she sort of sits there, trying to move herself into a bow, and effectively failing to do so as her entire body has been weakened from the ANFE. Fuck the world, and the people in it.. And fuck the dude with the rifle…

*with each shot that hit the portal would shatter. the joy of the glasscom portals. specially made for more defensive actions…once all the portals were shattered, they stayed closed*

00:10AM
Now what? He sighs, simply calling out.. “I’m here for my-” He stops, coughing.. Shouting is a bit difficult for him out.. “I’m here for my sister! Zoey Tompkins! Please, just carry her out here for me!” Okay, this is a bigger struggle than usual. Also, leads to him coughing up just a tiny little bit of blood. Huh. He now knows what it’s like to be legitimately dying..
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
00:10AM
The Scion returned the smile, even feeling the drain of all her magical energy from her body. She looked around at the rifles pointed at them, the green tips spelling her death. Maybe it was because she already died before? But she didn’t lose hope, even when this situation looked so grim. “With all due respect, the Scion of Hellifyno bows to no sovereignty.” Instead set sat down crosslegged on the ground, closing her two fists and pressing them into each other. “The people in this room clearly mean you no harm. Rouge agents and splinter cells is what you need to worry about.” She mimicked Krieger’s excuse. “You surely can’t hold use responsible for that, can you?”

00:10AM
[And well, away they went to fear and worry, away from the shattered portals that closed from above]

00:11AM
“You want me on my knees, jackass, then you better be ready to lose whatever I end up being eye-level with, how about that?” Gwen kept her hands away from her weapons, but she looked back at the soldier with daggers in her eyes. “I will headbutt you in the crotch so hard you’ll look like me down there.”
 
Narrator
 
00:13AM
the aged woman smiles down at the Scion, her sickly sweet gaze never blinking as the other woman sits. “Very well.” She looks around at the rest of the congregation. Beaten. Yet not broken. “Very well indeed.” She then turns to the Senators in the stands, many of whom are still panicked, but some, the majority of whom are starting to file back towards their seats, watching the now far more controlled progression of events unfold on the floor beneath them. “These are a defiant peoples. Ones who have never had to learn what it is to live in weakness, and in pain. Shall we administer the great equalizer? Shall we… teach them, the lessons of mortality?”
 
Randall Wayne
 
00:13AM
“Bow? BOW!? What reason is there to make us surrender ourselves? We can’t be suspects. You literally read out the ONLY suspect aloud after he painted the podium with your ‘hero’.” But Randall would have to go with whatever his client chose. But the force to one of his troops? Not okay. Simply reaching out to grab the very soldier’s wrist and pinned it to his chest. “Another display like that then they’ll be a *real* war in this room. Understand me?” Once he let go he glared to whoever was in charge. “Keep your savages in check? At this rate I’m cantbtell the difference between the Watch and the Rouge Cell.
 
Zoey, Lily, And Vera Tompkins (Vietnow Radio)
 
00:15AM
Her eyes then shoot up to the woman.. Not once had someone spoken those words to describe Zoey. Zoey knows what it’s like. Hell yes, she knows. This woman’s words actually anger her, giving her the drive to being herself to her knees.. and speak. “You say that, and yet you fail to realize that in the end, we each have our own struggle..” Her voice is weak, but it’s coming out. “In the end.. Magic or not, lady.. We’re all still human.”
 
Narrator
 
00:15AM
There is a murmuring amongst the Senators, but not a prolonged one. For soon, the resolution is seen. Thumbs standing upright. The measure has been passed, at least by those alive or with sense to pass it. And in that moment the aged woman’s grin becomes a menacing look of crooked yellow fangs in her mouth. “Bring forth the Equalizer. Let us be done with this.”
 
Krieger DM
 
00:17AM
Two men go up and taze Randall behind the neck. Three rifles point at him right away. “You will be treated worse then the others, fox lover.” And with a nod from a captain, the device is brought in, along with a doctor. The Equalizer. Several gun men aim and direct Gwen and Randall off to the side.
 
Desmond Foles
 
00:18AM
With a sigh, he steps out of the ANFE barrier, peering at the building and searching for his sister.. He can sense the danger they’re in. The danger Zoey’s in. He knows. Simply through the link he shares with his sister. “Don’t be dumb, Zoey…” He coughs, stumbling back a bit.. “Don’t be.. Dumb.”
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
00:18AM
Anthem listened to the words of the aged woman, it would seem that any real sense of achieving justice. With the sounds of a great equalizer, the Hope of Hellifyno got to her feet once more. She yelled at the Senators. “YOU NOD YOUR EMPTY AND AGREE TO THIS MEASURE, KNOWING FULL WELL THE PERPETRATOR OF THE MURDER?! WHAT SORT OF MOCKERY OF JUSTICE IS THIS?! FOR ALL WE KNOW THIS MAN WORKS FOR THAT CELL THAT SUPPOSEDLY ATTACKED THE STATION.”

“And now you shall learn what it is to be one of us. And when it is through, perhaps you shall even join us. For you shall know our struggles and our pain for real.”

“Ah yes, more than happy. Been a long time since we have done this however, Ma’am.” He said to her as if she where a revered figure. Several soldiers stand guard. “Who is first ma’am?”
 
Gwen Poole
 
00:20AM
“If you think for one moment that just because you’re aiming guns at me that I’m about to LEAVE MY FRIEND, then FUCK YOU!” And Gwen put her hands on her pistols next and in a flash, she’d pulled them out. “You guys think YOU have it bad! Well, I’m sorry to tell you that I actually COME from a REALER world than this, and you’re just a bunch of whiners! I’m from NEW YORK!”

More doctors appear now. Surrounded by soldiers in dark uniforms the doctors seem almost bright, their white lab coast a stark contrast, and the glowing green capsules they carry a shimmering glow in the dimmed chambers of the Senate. A menace, a promise. But noi more than the glowing green tips of the gun points of death aimed at each and every one.

Gwen Poole
 
00:22AM
Thankfully for Gwen, she was wearing some pretty badass new armor. The men that came at her with stun rods found that she was hard to hit at close-combat range, as she brought up her forearms to block them as she pulled her pistols free and put a few ‘warning’ shots into their thighs. “I said FUCK OFF! I’m NOT leaving Anthem!”
 
Krieger DM
 
00:23AM
Their armor seems to stop the bullet before it touches. “Really you think we wouldn’t do worse.” With that, the man who sent the kick sent out a punch like a freight train to her, his gauntlet cackled with energy.

00:25AM
“You people are hypocrites, you know that?” She’s pushed herself into a stance, now. Her eyes glaring at the woman in particular.. “You one second try for peace, and now what? You try and force a sentence upon us, the innocents in this situation, because of one man’s actions- a man with no magical abilities what so ever.” Her voice has strengthened now, her mind getting used to the lack of power. “Tell me, where did your senses go?!” Her entire body is fueled by rage now. Though, she knows her attempts won’t help. All this’ll do is help her sleep at night, knowing she at least made a stand.
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
00:25AM
Anthem gestured for Gwen to move off. “It’s okay. If they wanted to kill me, I’d be dead already.” The Scion turned her attention to the short, aged woman. “Take me, but leave these innocents alone.” The Hope had to believe in the idea of peace, even if lead her here; in this seemingly obvious trap before whatever the Great Equalizer was.

00:26AM
Vergil is one of the first grasped by the harsh hands of soldiers, and made to kneel, to bend forward, back of his neck exposed. A doctor in a pure pristine lab coat hovers over him with a glowing green capsule grasped between the fingers of a tong. And with his free hand, there is a knife, also glowing green so as to cut the magical tendons, dips down to slice, shallow, through the flesh over his spine. Opening a fresh wound in his body.
 
Randall Wayne
 
00:27AM
And taxed he was. Gripping one of the arms as he fell onto the ground and got dragged away. He was only human after all. Of course he would attempt to rise to his knees amidst the convulsions of his muscles. “Y-You…. stupid…l-lousy…. f-fuckin’ terrorists! I swear at the end I’LL SEND YOU TO THE FUCKIN’ FOX!” He was wearing armor as well. Though he doubt it would take more than five shots before becoming obsolete. “Anthem! N-Nows not the time t-to be a g-goddamn hero!” He shouted but, as the Warrior of Gaia he knew of her selflessness.
 
Krieger DM
 
00:27AM
“Innocent?” A soldier calls, pointing to Randall, “His employer slaughtered my wife and children, and he claims to ‘hold her back’. Does he hold her back when she experiments on innocent beings in a tavern?” He spit the words like bile. “Does anyone else with magic try to stop her? I had a cousin on vacation die in one of her rampages, I’m happy we don’t let people out!”

Gwen Poole
 
00:27AM
The blow slammed into Gwen and sent her back, but somewhere between sheer stubborn spirit and the armor hopefully doing its job so that she didn’t get too messed up, she just staggered back up. “No… I’m… You’re… NOT… LEAVING ME!” She glared at the old woman. “You wanna take Anthem? Then you’re taking me, too, goddamn it! I’m NOT leaving her alone again, not like this! You want my guns?” She held up one and offered it to her. “Then take it. Take it from me right now, you can have it. I’ll give you everything, or your bullshit cheat code stuff will keep it from hurting you, but don’t tell me to leave my friend…”

00:28AM
Anthem is composed, that is good. It makes it easier for the soldiers who fall in around her to press her down, to her knees, kneeling [position. And then press her head forward, back of her neck exposed through the hair. And above her, a doctor looms, a slyu grin on his face has he grips the glowing green dagger, as he presses the glowing green kernel in between pincered fingers.

“Oh boo-fuckin’-hoo! You arent the only one whose lost! Everyone has lost somethin’ at some point! Hell, I’m sure she has too! So quit actin’ like y’all ‘ave reason for this!” He growled. Wanting to move over to Gwen and Anthem But, most likely at the slightest lean he was struck.

00:31AM
A glowing green kernel is shoved into Vergil’s spine flesh, and as it is, the demon king melts into nothing but a weak and whimpering mortal man. Even as the flesh is sown up, expertly, by the doctor, he can feel the pain, not healing magically, but resonating, as the AM nanite suffuses his blood and makes him weak and mortal.
 
Randall is shoved down by the soldiers, no quarter give, as the knife slices his flesh too, this upon the arm, for ease despite his struggles, and the AM nanite is pressed, forcibly into his skin.
 
Gwen Poole
 
00:32AM
The needle would have to get through her armor, but all the same Gwen didn’t fight it. “I’ll always fight. Just like that old guy would’ve wanted me to…” But maybe she could pick her battles at least. She kept her eyes locked on Anthem, regardless. “Because I’m a champion.”

One kicks her, against the rules but there is anger here, Another pulls her head up, throat laid bared. A knife comes out, sliding along the flesh, creating the barest of tears and then, the glowing green AM kernel is pressed to teh wound, to melt her powers, to steal her magic and her spark.

“Or this could be your rouge faction, manipulating you into another war.” She replied in a cold and even tone, unresisting but without the smallest shred of fear on her face.

She won’t be able to protect them after this. She’ll be useless. Powerless. Next powerful being after Zoey and her family.. Would actually win. Her eyes begin to water. She’s hit rock bottom. Unless her backup plan works, she.. Might have actually messed up here. “Damn you…” She mutters… Then flat out screams the words.. “Damn all of you!” Once she would be released, she falls to her hands and knees, her mind racing with over a million different thoughts of how, and why she got herself into this situation..

A roar is heard, and just like at the tree… it means the ship was long gone. The Banshee unleashed a special load unto the side of the Tsuikian ship. A slayer EMP, with a wailing death ANFE blast.

00:38AM
The Scion is caught up by the arms and brought to the dead center of the Senate floor. She is made to bow. And in her stance she is bowing not just before a single man, though she does bow before the yet unremoved body of Krieger, but more importantly she bows before the might of the entirety of the Senate. All one thousand duly elected officials staring down at her, in reprove. They watch in silence, as the soldiers hold her. They watch in silence, as the doctor, in his immaculate white coat, approaches her.
 
“Are you ready to understand our pain? Scion?”
 
Desmond Foles
 
00:39AM
He feels the link break. Either Zoey’s dead, or she’s been sucked of her power. No matter. It’ll find it’s way back, he knows it. Eventually. It’ll take time. He coughs again, waiting for the ANFE barrier to fall so that he can collect his sister.

And so a wince was given as the blade cut and the nanite was pressed. Pinned to the floor, emerald green eyes focused on the one who spoke of dead relatives. “T-Trust me…. you’d be lucky to ‘ave any blood relatives once I get you. To all of you’s who think their in the right!” Of course he’d struggle… and struggle…. curse, threaten, the whole nine yards. But doubted it made too much of a difference. “Why don’t you fuckin’ pansies get these ‘equalizers’ over with! The shit must be child’s play….”

Krieger DM
 
00:42AM
One Watchman seems annoyed, and takes out a combat knife, putting it near Gwen’s ever moving mouth. “Shut up, or I’m cutting out your tongue.” A soldier behind Randall also a man who lost people to Ruby readies his rifle to the back of his leg, they already swapped out their rounds for AP rounds. A lot of soldiers seem angry with Randall. Most don’t seem to care much for Gwen.

To play it safe, Desmond does infact teleport away, going right to Lily and Vera actually. To inform them of what’s happening..
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
00:42AM
She looked up to the Senate floor, peering upon the men and women sitting so far above them. “I’ve had over 500 lifetimes to understand pain, Olde Watch.” She stated, her eyes narrowing as her fury grew. “Do as you will. I swear by my word that justice will find its way, regardless of what you do to me!”

00:44AM
The aged woman of the Senate herself steps up to the bowed Scion, taking the glowing green pincers from the doctor above her. She stares down at the warrior, the savior, with a look of utter disdain. “If you cannot save this people without your ‘power’ then you are no savior at all.” And with that she plunges the nanite kernel into Anthems bared wound, stealing all of the powers and magics of her soul. including, that connection, to the 500 other souls before her. Leaving her alone.”
 
Every magical being in the chamber is subdued, and Equalized, by the AM kernel.
 
And when it is over the Senators, one thousand in attendance, stand and lightly applaud.

00:50AM
Oh he heard the magazine of a firearm be switched. Randall would turn to glare if he could. “Oh, whatcha gonna do, big man? Shoot me? Kick me? Stab me?” The rather disliked person in the room spat towards a soldier’s boots. “Ain’t shit…. n-none o’ you are!” Of course everything wa sdeafened by applause. And be had didn’t know what effect the AM had upon the Scion of Hellifyno.
 
Krieger DM
 
00:51AM
“Big talk for a traitor to his kind.” Another soldier chimes in after, “Gonna cry to your boss, fox lover?” Several soldiers laughed. “If we weren’t shit, why are you still on the ground? Not gonna be a ‘hero’?”

00:52AM
Anyone that got the AM kernel infused into their flesh will feel that their magic, anything supernatural at all, is gone. They may feel sickly, and weakened by this, especially if they were very magical. The AM kernel is also attached to a nanite, a microscopic AI that can evade detection and extraction actively, and infect as much of the body they are present in as possible. And of course any means of magical extraction will fail, killed immediately by the power and effect of the AM itself.
 
æ Scion Anthem Kishimoto æ
 
00:52AM
Without magic, with her connection, the Scion of Hellifyno… Or rather, Anthem Kishimoto screamed at the top of her lungs as every ounce of extraordinary power was stripped from her body. Those crimson eyes flashing white, then flickering momentarily until they died out completely. Until she was quiet, tears streaming down her face as she glared at the Senate of Olde Watch. “Your amnesty is a joke. Your court is corrupt, and sour. I hope you enjoy your victory today, trampling over all the ideals of justice and honesty.” She replied to the woman. Even without power, without guidance from her past lives; she remained devoured to her duty.

” We didn’t do it! Well I am not with them. I came cause I was a victim of the Zombie attacks, and the explosion!” // Vergil tells them. //
 
Gwen Poole
 
00:53AM
Once everyone clapped, Gwen moved forward to get to Anthem, putting hands on her shoulders. “Are you finished being dumbasses now? Can we go? Have you had your dumb schoolyard revenge?”
 
“Are we humiliated enough, or do you wanna give us noogies, too, you bullies.”
 
“Maybe a swirlie?”
 
Narrator
 
00:54AM
“And now…” The ancient woman smile. “This peace summit is at an end. All may leave, with their lives in tact. Save one…” She frowns down upon the cold dead body of their Commander General Krieger, still lying on the Senate floor. “If you learn from this new amnesty, mayhap there will be peace. But otherwise, there will be war, between my peoples, and those who were your former peoples, forever more.”
 
At that, the doors of the Senate House open.
 
The soldiers step away, leaving the exists clear.
 
There is still ANFE present, so portals cannot be made and no ships will be allowed to pick you up. But those with will can make their way out, through the streets of taunting citizens, past the open gates, and into the open space beyond the city, to hopefully be picked up by some friend from afar.
 
Zoey, Lily, And Vera Tompkins (Vietnow Radio)
 
00:55AM
She pushes herself up, just standing there now, her head hung low. When it rises, a look of pure anger is in her eyes. Along with shame. Shame that she fell for such a trap, and failed to sense it coming. Failed to get outta dodge before the ANFE set into place. Failing to protect those she cares about. “You people… You don’t understand.. Just how big of a hypocrite you’ve made yourselves to be.” Her voice carries just a pure blankness to it, and as she turns to leave, Desmond appears outside the barrier again, waiting.

Silence from the Senate. The doors are open. There are still soldiers everywhere, but they remain vigil, and stoic.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
00:59AM
Anthem got to her feet, helped by Gwen. “Do you hear yourself you miserable old woman? There is no them people, or us people. We’re just people. Your prejudices and shortsightedness will be your unbecoming.” Then, the young Kishimoto woman headed towards the door; leaving this place. This falsehood, this mockery of law, a temple of corruption. Slowly as the AM settled in her system, it actually released some blocks on her memory. It wasn’t clear to her just yet, but they’d be a reckoning one day.
 
Randall Wayne
 
01:01AM
Fingers still twitching form excessive electricity that was tazed into him. “Now who says I’m a hero? N-Never fuckin’ was, never will be.” Another low growl as he rose to his feet. He had half the mind to rip open throats with his bare hands but, he had a client. A client who appeared to be *very* fucked up. Shuffling his way over to the the pair. Moving behind Anthem to slide his arms under her own to help Kishimoto to her feet. “M-Miss Kishimoto….. I-I can source us a ride fork M.S.F…. I-If you think your able to walk outta the city….” he said. Of course checking on Gwen as well.
 
Zoey, Lily, And Vera Tompkins (Vietnow Radio)
 
01:01AM
As she exits the barrier, Desmond appears at her side. She glances up at him, her eyes carrying a look that tells Desmond that Zoey’s been broken.. “Sis..” He mutters, placing a hand on her shoulder.. Silence falls between them. Along with a new found rage. “..Let’s get you to Jude.. See if she can do something.” She just sighs, simply saying, “Desmond, I’ve been completely mind fucked. There’s no way I can come back from this with the damn thing they injected inside me-” Desmond stops her, placing a hand over her mouth. They’d both teleport back to Vietnow.. Desmond, obviously, is in charge of this teleportation..

“Boss, help…” Randall was already there to help regardless. He might not see himself as the best guy, and even Gwen wasn’t gonna lie and say he was perfect, but he was definitely the best boss she’d ever had. “If you can get us a chopper or something, I’m sure Anthem will tell us somewhere we can take her.” And figure out their next move.

// Vergil glares at the soldiers. He walks out into the streets he drops Orphilian seeds on to the round and smirks as they grow into the ground. These seeds weren’t magical or had powers they were just plants that thrived on blood. // ” If I am to suffer your people will suffer. ” // The roots were piercing through the people in the streets draining them of their blood. turning them to ash.//

“C’mon…..” he simply said. Grabbing the teen by the least injured limb and pull her up if she wa still on the ground. Making sure whether she could walk on her own or not before attempting to guide both her and Anthem towards the exit and out the city. Hopefully avoiding as much of the Mob as possible.
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
01:06AM
“Yeah, I can walk.” She stated. Even outside of magic, outside of the cycle of the Scion; there was Anthem. Determined, stubborn sometimes to a fault. Having to and needing to believe in the hope that people can change for the better. But with her light diminished, her power gone; things were going to change for this Kishimoto. For the world. “And yeah, a ride would be good. Thanks.” She added weakly, continuing her path while bearing the heavy burden of shame over tonight’s events.
 
Randall Wayne
 
01:12AM
Randall was more pissed than shamed. What was there to be ashamed about? Working for Ruby? He had valid reasons. Valid reasons even Ruby’s enemies understood. But now wasn’t the time. Once in a location deemed safe enough, three VTOL airships would arrive for the three. Two containing troops just in case any were following them, and the third fitted with a medical bay, intel gathered, and other necessities. Randall instructed for Anthem to get treatment first as there was one bed. Then Gwen, and of course him. Once up and away, Randall asked a simple question. “Where to?”
 
Anthem Lucas Kishimoto
 
01:14AM
“If anyone can get this thing out of me, it’s Kurai.” Anthem stated to Randall, but she was in no position to resist his orders. Plus, there was really no way to get in contact with her right now.
 
Kaito Tsuikia the Immortal

A card would float down out of nowhere, it was one of Kaitos Gate cards to his Castle, it landed on the ground infront of Anthem.

“Well…. lets just… get away from ‘ere…. we’ll contact Kurai….” and so, they were off. To a location only known between them.
