    Serpent’s artificial companion would respond to the slaps against the helmet immediately. “You know just asking for what you need is a lot more polite than hitting yourself.” The feminine voice within Serpent's helmet had the usual tone of mild irritation when it speaked. “It says something of ‘The Demon’s eyes are always on you’, probably something of a reminder to the locals to not cross them in anyway. This gang is responsible for more than a few massacres within the slums, Mundane Law Enforcement has cracked down on their activity significantly but they are dug in very deeply around this region. Some officials have speculated it wouldn’t take anything less than military like operations to finally get rid of them. Naturally sending in thousands of heavily armed police officers into areas where there is also a large civilian population to battle with heavily armed gangsters isn’t prefered so Law Enforcement has been looking into at least containing them.” As the AI spoke about the subject a map showing activity and various news reports and documents came up on Serpent’s HUD, unfortunately Aura would be unable to see the information.

    The Crimson Monstrosity’s travel would not be impeded by anything else the rest of the way to the manor. The Craveloft woman would go her own way and Nightmare was out of the house on some sort of errand. As such the creature was free to do as it wished in the manor with its various employees and resources at its disposal, provided it asks. Perhaps someone could know something about the Warlock that he seeked?

    @Wincent (Mystic) @Vulpas
    Mystic’s attempt at chaining the strange woman riding on a griffin would not go as planned as the chains would not find their mark. She could distinctly feel the interference of a power much greater than hers, divine intervention though she could not be sure exactly what had stepped in . Meanwhile Morph simply raised an eyebrow at what Mystic said but offered no words, simply sighing in a manner that made it clear he was beginning to get used to the strangeness of dealing with this woman. “Well first of all thank you for securing Corgins, I certain he did not make the task particularly easy. Second we have reports of green fire that cannot be put out erupting in different parts of the city. Given your abilities I figured you might be a good candidate to solve the issue.” If Mystic would look inside after failing to catch the fleeing valkyrie she could see Morph was bringing up a map for her to see that showed the locations of the fires that have been reported.

    Meanwhile in the air the Valkyrie could feel the sun’s rays warm and calm her as her deity seemed to extend a hand to assist her in her situation. The sun would temporarily grow brighter and cause the WBSA agents below to shield their eyes less they go blind from the intense light. This was her chance to escape.

    @Wincent (Hallow) @The_Raven
    Hallow and her men would quickly make their way out of the building with a haste that easily showed they were pretty much done with whatever the hell was going on here. Though upon opening the door it is revealed that their activities had not gone unnoticed. A fire truck was parked outside with several firefighters in specialized suits on standby to enter the building which must have been obviously on fire by this point. Though these suited up firemen weren’t attempting to enter the building and instead were just standing there which was strange up until the fire captain(who wore a distinct suit to identify his rank easily) was speaking to a bald man dressed in WBSA issue body armor. The firefighters looked towards the figures that had just emerged from the building. Ben and the gang members stared at them and for a moment there was a shocked silence between the two groups who weren’t expecting one another. Both were unsure what to do until the WBSA agent reached a hand out towards them. At first the gesture seemed to do nothing but then the gang members along with Hallow began to be short of breath and found standing seemed to be a lot more difficult than it should be. Ben, realizing the wbsa agent was doing something fired off a burst from his weapon and began running, pulling another of the gang members by the arm they made a run for it. Though now the WBSA agent and the firemen who looked inside and saw the fire within, luckily Ryshan was somewhat concealed by the flames. Seemingly as if luck was finally turning in her favor the curse was fading as well. The shadows were becoming weaker, their attacks slowing to the point that dodging was something she could do almost subconsciously.

    Taking a brief rest within the abandoned distribution center Daniel would hear a disturbance nearby at a doorway. If he investigated he would find the homeless man from earlier was walking up from the same way he had entered. “Hello.” He said, his tone of voice sounding drastically more sane than before as well as his eyes seemed to be focused and serious where before they were clouded and clearly somewhere else. “Daniel Stern, I have something for you.” The man approached Daniel as he reached into his coat pocket and grabbed a metallic case. Upon Daniel taking the case the man walked away offering no explanation when Daniel blinked the man was completely gone. Left with nothing else to do he could examine the case and notice that it had the heraldry of the Neo North Sea Empire on the top. He wouldn’t find a latch or anything to open it but upon grazing the heraldry the box would click and open to reveal two things. An envelope and a usb, of he looked around he would notice there was a terminal over in an empty office.

    With the two Ukranians waiting in agitated patience they would soon find the source of the various noises to resemble what is referred to as a technical. Technical being the term used to describe an improved light fighting vehicle or in this case a pick up truck carrying a prominent crisis era machine gun mounted on an improvised stand on the back of the cab. The bed of the pick up was loaded with both assorted loot like television screens, furniture, and cardboard boxes presumably filled with smaller items. Also in back sat several people, all with their faces covered by masks of different animal heads. A strange sight but nothing compared to the two even stranger creatures observing them. They could both calculate it would be a quick fight if they chose to engage them but perhaps this groups had information two of them could use?
  2. The young Craveloft didn't seem to be at the manor, odd, but not at all concerning to the sanguine creature. For at this time it didn't require the presence of that child. No, what it sought out now was nothing the boy would be able to know. But the lord of this manor, the boy's father. The beastial entity had a creeping feeling- almost overwhelming even-that if anyone at the manor would know anything about the scum that was Warlock, it would be him. And so it corded its way to the manor grounds, stalking the whereabouts for one Alduin Craveloft, demanding to know the man's whereabouts from those he happened to stumble across. The questions it needed answered before heading off to finally fell the man that held much of it's ire, contempt, and utter hatred.
    What was going to hurt them the most. How was it going to render that contemptuous filth a broken sack of a man. What ever was going to give it the edge it needed to carry out it's much sought after vengeance. It couldn't afford to miss this chance given it. Warlock was going to die, and it was going to be done by it's hands alone. And Alduin Craveloft was going to divulge everything he knew, to ensure the Warlock's demise tonight.
  3. With his new task and information given to him, Daniel decided that for now, and maybe contenuelly it might be best to do as he was told, if they could track him like this, then he was probebly in some serius danger.
    Daniel removed the USB from the terminal and picked up the briefcase before making his leave, he would have to do some quick casing of the councilhouse, though not too long since it would surely be now that it would be easiest to infiltrate, just a few guards instead of all its workers

    This was her chance her god was watching over her and freedom was here. "Come sun burst let us head towards our camp." The sun valkyrie said as she was lifted upon her mount and began riding her griffon towards where the Valkyries camp lay where the sun signs pon high heights.
  5. Wata Wata Arkhona Vanguard

    Serpent straightened his back and paused to process all the info Ilona was throwing at him.
    "These cool beans are turning into sour beans, if they ever even reached cool to begin with..."
    He picked a direction, which was based on the most reliable spot to find such gangers, hopefully not armed to the teeth.
    "Let's go, princess. More ice cream if you're good."
  6. Porter SpaceHulk Arkhona Vanguard

    The mechanical tendrils of Ukraine's Tragedy propelled forward towards the front wheels of the vehicle in an attempt to stop it dead in its tracks before Artur blasted a wave of force towards the vehicle at the same time to try and knock it onto its side. The blast from Ukraine's Agony shook Vadim's body with the vibrations as well as the ground beneath them.
  7. Saraph Midas Casavay Well-Known Member

    Aura had simply snorted at Serpent's jokes about buddy cop movies when Serpent, after a moment's silence, spoke up again. "Sour beans? I don't think those are a thing...", she murmured, mostly to herself, then nodded at his informal shot-calling, moving forward with swift steps. Irregardless of the gravity of the situation, the heiress chuckled at her partner's humour. "You know, this isn't really a cheat day for me, so you'll have to do better to motivate this princess."
  8. Ryshan instantly took this opportunity to dive into the shadows and attempt to teleport over to a dark alleyway opposite the bank, upon doing so she would reach for the phone she was given and call for backup
  9. MYSTIC:
    Mystic lets the Valkyrie go before she ventures into the portal, Arc sitting on her shoulder, looking over the group. Mystic however, just shakes her head.
    "I would normally assist, Morph. But I have a schedule to keep. I have an... appointment, lets say that I need to make sure I am in time for. The people I am meeting are not the type you leave waiting"
    She nods calmly, as her hands slip into her sleeves as she turns around, the golden portal dissapearing before she summons a new one. She calmly steps through it and enters into her home, where she walks to the middle of the library and kneels down in a medative position, beginning to channel her holy magic.

    Light shimmering, rising up in long strands, circulating above her head, forming a halo as it twirls faster and faster, before beginning to lower around Mystic.

    Hallow frowns as she feels the weight, reaching out with her own hand.
    An ancient word, which she had learned in the tome she had gotten her hands on, her hand flashes crimson red. A simple spell, usually meant for mere initiates, meant to temporarily clot blood at a lighting fast pace.
    Aiming the spell at the WBSA agent, she aims to clot the blood in his arm, making it clot and create a plug. Not planning to fight him directly as she really don't have time for that, instead aiming to make him either too distracted or simply too encumbered... OR too frightened to actually try and follow a fight.
    IF the spell has the desired effect on the agent would Hallow join her men, as they had moved the bags to the waiting van that they had arrived in.
  10. @Wata @Casavay (WBSA) @SpaceHulk
    With the agents going in a random direction to check if there were any gangsters in a particular direction they would hear several less than normal noises. A car’s tires screeching on asphalt and a sudden sound of metal crumpling upon some great impact. Naturally these sounds meant the Ukrainians’ efforts worked as they intended as the car was now on its side. The sudden force had sent two of the people who were riding on the outside to be thrown off of the vehicle and landing on the hard ground. Serpent and Aura were just fast enough to see the immediate aftermath of the crash along with the people responsible. “Undocumented O-gene signatures detected.” Serpent’s AI said, quickly targeting the two fairly grotesque examples of modified humanity.

    Alduin Craveloft would be found in his study quietly looking over financial reports for this quarter. Things seemed to be going fairly stable for the fair ship Craveloft. Though his brief good mood was put on hold as the peculiar red creature that his son brought into their home demanded an audience with him. Not being one to insight unneeded conflict in his own home he of course instructed the creature be told of his whereabouts. “What is it your require…” He said realizing he didn’t really know the name of this thing. Upon hearing that the thing desperately wanted information about the warlock Alduin sighed. “I’m afraid I have chosen to distance myself from such an individual. I cannot tell you much as I do not know you much but I can offer you the number given out to arrange possible meetings with him for exchanging either payment or hostages. He’s a strange one too, always asking to meet in the sewers.”

    @Wincent (Mystic)
    Mystic would appear in a vast expanse of what appeared to just be space, filled with countless shining stars. Each star being a representation of a pool of knowledge and memories, the undeniable truths of realms. The masked woman found herself in the Library of Phanuel, the Archangel of Truth and Knowledge. A being that sat in the court of that what so many beings refer to as “God”. The Archangel could be sounds meditating in the very center of this space, his body lifted about the ground with his robes flowing down to touch the invisible floor. His legs folding and arms placed down along his legs. A second set of arms that resembled intertwined metal came from somewhere on his back. One was in a similar pose to his organic looking arms in a state of meditation while the other was holding up a bowl crafted with such great skill a lesser human would be unable to quite perceive it’s material or method of construction. The smoke of incense came from it and flowed into the star that was above the Archangel’s head.

    “Greetings Eve, you’ve come to me so we may begin your audience.” The Archangel of course knew exactly what Mystic wanted to do before she was even aware of what she wanted. He has perceived a great many things eons before they would occur, though even he understood his perceptions were not always accurate. No one could truly predict the future in a perfect fashion but many get very accurate. It’s more of a matter of luck really, perhaps if he had made the right predictions the war would have never happened. The Archangel did away with the stray thoughts at he broke his meditation and stood on the invisible ground of his library. “You will have to prove yourself to Gabriel. I am confident you will succeed but I am obligated to warn you the Archangel is not particularly fond of mortals.” With a snap of his fingers they left the library and found themselves in an entirely different area.

    The landscape was that of frigid rolling hills, a thin layer of snow gracing the very top of the tallest hills. With the small valleys between the hills providing space for primitive looking plants to grow. This place was the personal area of the Archangel, his own kingdom for him to watch over and do as he sees fit. “A quick bit of advice, refrain from standing on the plants.” Phanuel said as they could feel a distant rumbling on the ground. Of course they would only have to look up to see its source. The Archangel Gabriel is the most powerful angel, God’s right hand, and the guardian of the last part of Heaven’s Stairway. The size of him is truly awe inspiring, a being the size of a mountain who continuously walks through his garden. His body appeared to be made of stone and wrapped in a golden feathered serpent with many tails that moved on their own. Behind him was a large golden halo and he seemed to radiate his own sort of light which melted snow and caused the plants to open up to primitive flowers.

    “Eve here wished to take up a quest from our father.” Phanuel said to Gabriel in his normal quiet voice. The Archangel turned his head down to them, an ancient wound from the eternal war rendering his face as a blasted crater where perfect marble once was is now a blackened rock. Though it was within their power to return to their previous beauty the Archangel refused to do so. “Then she must pass my scrutiny.” The Archangel said as they went down to one knee to look at Mystic more closely.

    @Wincent (Hallow)
    Hallow’s escape plan seemed to work if not just barely as the agent suddenly found himself having a hard time feeling his arm. This provided a just small enough window for the gang to make itself scarce from the area. Getting into their care with their leader and speeding off in a directed direction. They would notice several fire fighting vehicles speeding in the opposite direction as the screaming green flames engulfed the building completely. Hallow could feel her curse breaking as the demonic heat was too much for the runes to bear.

    Elsewhere in a strangely dark alleyway Ryshan would find the club owner picking up. Assuming the young demon would explain the situation the club owner would be quiet for a moment. “I asked you to get an item from a bank and you ended up setting it on fire?” The question had no anger in it, more just sounding confused. “This is…. unexpected, just come back here. I’ll explain when you get here.” They would hang up after speaking. Assuming Ryshan listened to the demon she would make her way back down to the club and open the door to find the owner waiting.

    “First of all I’m not mad, I was going to destroy what you were supposed to get anyways. It was evidence for something that doesn’t concern you. But I am genuinely curious why you thought burning the bank down was a prudent move.” Ryshan would notice that there was no one else was around. This conversation they were having was quite private.

    The trip to the council building was quick of course, aided by his powers and a good understanding of the city. The council building was in the very center of town, far away from the chaos of the industrial district and the now fading WBSA mobilization. There was only the most basic security around which a quick transformation was easily able to bypass. He had the run of the building within a few minutes. The council chamber was empty, overall it was a single large room with a large table in the center. There were twenty four seats around it, each with its own terminal. All Daniel needed to to now was figure out which one belonged to the Councilman of Industrial Concerns.

    The Valkyrie would be able to make it back to her camp unmolested. The sun was starting to reach the end of its highest position as the time was now well past noon. There would still be several more hours of sunlight but the day will pass sooner than later. Her god was watching over her but they lost strength in this realm when the sun is down. Extending anything greater would attract attention of far greater powers that watch this place. Even gods have something bigger to fear within the realms.
