Aegis

- Marcus -

Marcus' eyes widened slightly when Rise raised her fan into the air, but he didn't take a step back. With his senses heightened by his magic, he was more than aware of the fact that James was behind him somewhere. Rise wouldn't risk dropping brimstone in his direction.

"That's where you're wrong." Marcus responded with a sad smile. "I'm not worth her attention or affections, but that doesn't make me want them any less."


"Maybe that's why I don't want to make such a big deal out of it. No sense in getting my hopes up for the inevitable crash back to earth, right?"

--------------------------------------------------

- Keynes -

"Thank you." Keynes pulled Kokonoe into a tight embrace before pressing a soft kiss to the top of her head. "Take care of yourself and our daughter until I get back."

He stepped back, allowing his eyes to linger on her for a moment longer, and then turned to everyone else approaching. "Alright you sorry lot, we're relocating this little boot camp! Everyone go get whatever you brought with you. Lambda is going to be relocating us to Bunker 13."

--------------------------------------------------

Ocean

- Lisa -

Lisa remained silent through Ehlana's response. While it was true that the strains were a mutation to begin with, and Lisa herself was more aware than most of where they had originated, she couldn't see a scenario where a Redcape occurred naturally.

"I've probably got enough power to keep up this speed for another three hours, and maybe half this for an hour after that." She responded to Jax, flexing her fingers around the edge of the raft. "Then, I'll need a few hours to rest."

Taking a deep breath, she finally turned her attention to Ehlana. "You tell me." Her voice was cold, but not emotionless. This was a woman she'd been prepared to defend the rights of, but that notion was quickly withering. "How would injecting an innocent child be any different from injecting an innocent bystander at a music concert?"

Ergo Research
- Marcus -

Rise's eyes softened, and she lowered her fans at Marcus' words. It sounded like something James would have said back before they'd gotten together, and that made it hurt more than she would have expected.

"You shouldn't say that," she said. Your feelings matter. Even if she doesn't return them, that doesn't mean they're not worth something. And there's only no chance if you never say anything."

She looked over at where James stood and smiled.

"I was in love with someone once," she said. "And if I hadn't confessed to him and heard that he didn't return my feelings, I wouldn't have been able to move on. And if James had never confessed his feelings to me, we might not be together right now."

Keynes called out to them, and Rise frowned. Relocating? Why?

"Come on," she said, grabbing waving Marcus on as she ran over to the rest of the group. "This isn't over yet!"

--------------------------------------------------

- Kokonoe -

Kokonoe let a small sigh escape her lips as Keynes pulled her into an embrace. Why did these moments have to be so few and far between?

"I will," she promised. She watched as Keynes and the rest of Aegis gathered around Lambda. Then, in a flash of brilliant light, they had vanished. Kokonoe lingered a few moments, staring around the now empty room, before heading back to her lab.

--------------------------------------------------

Ocean
- Jax -

Jax remained silent during Lisa and Ehlana's continuing argument. It was starting to wear on him, and he didn't have the energy to keep refuting Ehlana's misguided views.

He leaned against the side of the raft and peered out over the sea. It might have been his imagination, but the raft felt a little less solid than it had before. At least, he hoped he was imagining it...

--------------------------------------------------

Peterny - Old Guard Prison
- Alexei -

Alexei pondered Nadenka and her words. She was such a mystifying blend of optimism and melancholy. What made her like that?

She brightened up when talking about her family and how their ancestors came from somewhere in Russia called "Moscow." How far away was that from Arusia?

When she spoke in Russia, he frowned. It was an intriguing-sounding language. What had she just said now?

"Why learn Russian?" he asked. "There's no one else around to speak it."

[OOC: The Leviathan incident happened many generations ago. No one currently alive experienced the world before that. I had Alexei responding to Nadenka talking about her ancestors being from Russia, not her parents.]

Ergo Research - Gym
- Lenka -

“What?” Lenka first looked surprised, then shocked as the news sank in. “How’s that possible?” she whispered.

It took her a few seconds to shake the dread that was overcoming her.

“I hope you’re right,” she said to Luke as they headed over to Keynes and Lambda.

James was already there, waiting. As much as he knew training was important, he welcomed the chance for a break. That it brought this many bad news, he hadn’t expected.

Of course he was worried about Lisa and Jax, but they were tough, right?

When everyone had gathered, he braced himself for Lambda’s Traesto spell.

---------------------------

Ocean
- Ehlana -

Ehlana took her time to answer. She could understand where Lisa was coming from and why she felt like injecting a bystander and a baby was equally wrong.

Sure, she could give the long answer. How Kaddath conscripted its magic users to the military and that meant they were enemy combatants to her. How that made them fair game. And how it was the lesser of the two evils. An adult was aware of their strain, the dangers it posed. However a baby? Not so much, especially if the strain still lay dormant.

But in all honesty, she didn’t feel like justifying her actions. In the end, they wouldn’t understand. Not here, not in this world.

Finally she answered without elaborating on Lisa's other question.

“I wouldn’t choose to,” Ehlana said.

Still what if she was ordered to? Well that didn’t seem like it would happen in the near future, so she decided not to ponder over the answer.

---------------------------

Peterney - Old Guard HQ
- Kurik -

Their arrival had of course interrupted any activity and the people in the room stood at attention. “At ease,” Lorrin ordered and they all resumed what they were doing.

There was maybe 10 people in the room. It appeared some had already headed out.

“This is Sgt. Red Connor,” Lorrin walked Kurik over to a middle aged man who was talking animatedly to one of his Privates. “His squad just came back from patrol. They, along with squad 4 and 6 are under my command and are mainly in charge of outer security.”

Kurik nodded. It seemed to be a three-shift system. Smart. Easier to maintain than a two or four shift system, because you needed less people.

“Did Squad 4 have anything to report, Red?” Lorrin asked. Even though there seemed to be a command structure, Lorrin didn’t seem to insist on it.

Red shook his head. “Nothing out of the ordinary, Captain. I’m sure you’ll get the report eventually” he said with a grin. “Who did you bring with you?” he asked curiously.

“This is Kurik,” Lorrin explained the circumstances of Kurik’s presence and introduced him to the squad. This gave Kurik an idea.

“I’d like to head out with them,” he said and looked from Lorrin to Red to see how his idea was received. “It would give me a good chance to observe everything first-hand.”

Lorrin hesitated for a second and then nodded his consent. “If Sgt. Connor agrees,” he said.

Red shrugged. “Sure. I don’t mind. It’ll be fun and maybe not so boring then,” he grinned and tossed Kurik an Old Guard jacket. “Gotta dress the part though.”

Lorrin nodded once more. “You know where to find me,” he said and left with a wave of his hand.

“Okay, let’s get this party started,” Red was enthusiastic about it. While Kurik dressed in the Old Guard uniform, Red rattled down the names of his squad and their exact orders.

“Ready,” Kurik finally said and together with Squad 5 he headed out.

Ergo Research
Luke Jaron

"I hope I am right too." Luke smiled softly, then he shook his head and had little more optimism "Nah, I got the feeling I am going to meet him again, and I am usually not wrong with this kind of feeling." then Luke looked at Lenka, somewhat confident than before "I kind of had that feeling when I met..." Luke did not really finish what he was going to say as he realized what he might implied, and he thank the invisible being for the great timing. But his mouth moved faster than his thought, "....You" However, he did not say it loud thankfully, so Lenka might not have heard him....and, Keynes called them up and Lenka and Luke had to gather around like everyone else.

Perhaps the news hit hard Lenka, so she might not have heard properly? Luke couldn't believe in himself what he was about to say to her. And most importantly, the timing as well! If Luke had a time, he would have punched himself for being inconsiderate. Lenka was probably swallowing the news hard and his mouth was about to flirt with her.

"What's wrong with you, Luke! Get yourself together!" He scolded himself in whisper and was ready to be teleported with others.

Aegis

- Keynes -

As they stepped out of the teleportation circle, Keynes inhaled the stale, bunker air. He didn't know why, but it always brought a smile to his face. "Thank you, Lambda. I'll signal you if we need further assistance, but hopefully, it won't be necessary."

Taking a few steps further, Keynes turned to the rest of the group. "As you can see, we've been deposited in the mess hall." He gestured to the empty tables around them. "Outside the doors behind me is a single hallway. The gym and locker rooms are to the left, and the common room and barracks are to the right."


"Unfortunately, this place was built for a time when the army was primarily male. So, there's only one big room in the barracks, but I think you all can manage. Just pick a bunk and stash your stuff under it."


"I'm going to head topside and find Alina to discuss our next course of action. James, you're in charge. Probably best that you all get the place cleaned up. It's gonna be your home while we're in the Capitol."

Nodding to James, Keynes turned and made his way down the hallway to the service elevator, which would take him up into one of the older Capitol police stations.

------------------------------------------------------------------

- Marcus -

"One big room?" Marcus coughed, glancing in Lenka and Rise's direction to see how the two of them took that news. Not that he would be able to see it very well. The lighting in this room wasn't much to brag about, but at least it was better than that of the group home.

"Right..." Still feeling slightly disoriented from the teleportation spell, he made his way down the hall. At the end was a moderately sized room with a couple dusty couches and a humming vending machine, which appeared to have contained snacks at some point. He wasn't sure if they could be trusted now though.

Through the next door, the space opened up into a dimly lit room with lines of bunks on either wall. Taking a quick count, he came up with twenty beds total. That did at least put a decent amount of space between each of them for some privacy, but judging from the echos of his footfalls, the odds were good that any sound would carry in this room. Not a good place for keeping secrets.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Ocean

- Lisa -

Lisa frowned at Ehlana's last response. Clearly, the woman had some issues to work through. Of course, considering that her comrades had just tried to silence her in the most permanent way, that was probably to be expected.

Allowing her thoughts to take her away, Lisa focused on the horizon. If she remembered correctly, there were a few small islands between Ergo and the mainland. Hopefully, they would stumble upon one before she burned out for the day.

It wouldn't be as good as making the mainland, but it was a step up from an inflatable raft in the middle of the ocean at night...

Caltha - Barracks
- Rise -

Lambda nodded at Keynes words and stepped back to leave.

"Please be careful," she said, gazing at Keynes. "Kokonoe... worries. She doesn't like to admit it - I think it makes her feel vulnerable - but she does. And... so do I."

She bowed her head and vanished in a flash of light.

Rise watched her go, then turned to survey their surroundings as Keynes pointed them out. She wrinkled her nose at the musty smell and put her hands on her hips. It wasn't quite as homey as the original bunker they'd called home for a while, but they'd certainly seen worse.

"Cooking is my specialty, not cleaning," she said, frowning as Keynes left the room. Marcus wandered off to explore, and Rise followed after him with a bounce in her step.

"Hey, Marcuuus~" she trilled, grinning. "How about you start cleaning, and while you do, we can talk about your... problem."

------------------------------------------------------------------

Caltha - High General's Chamber
- Lecarde -

The door to the High General's chamber opened, and Lecarde strode through. His eyes were hard and determined.

"High General," he said. "I'm sorry for the short notice, but Minister Winters and I left for the capital right after the Old Guard's declaration. I had to be here."

He balled his hands into fists.

"Please allow me to take part in the negotiations," he said fervently. "If she really is Arzei Adalia's daughter... I need to know."

He turned at the sound of footsteps and faced Keynes.

"Minister Allenby," he said, inclining his head.

[OOC: Keynes is part of the Electorate, right?]

------------------------------------------------------------------

Caltha - Capitol Entrance
- Maxim -

The Old Guard procession stopped outside the entrance to the capitol building, where a small group of Army officials was waiting to welcome them.

Well, perhaps "welcome" was a bit of stretch. Maxim smiled wryly at the frigid reception.

"High General Grey will be meeting with you in the Kaiser's Complex. Please follow us."

Farrington's face tightened, as did most of the Old Guard familiar with the capitol. Ariana Adalia seemed blissfully unaware of the situation, however, as she led the procession in her full regalia, strutting like a peacock.

Whatever this "Kaiser's Complex" was, it was probably intended to discomfort the Old Guard and put Alina Grey and her followers at an advantage. Shrewd move.

"What do you think of Caltha?" he asked Belo, admiring the beautiful and regal architecture and scenery around them. "Nothing like Arusia."

Peterny - Old Guard Prison
Nadenka Orlov

Nadenka smiled weakly, "Well... there's used to be one more...." Her sparkling green eyes lost its light; it looks like the question actually hit her harder than Alexei had given thought about it.

Then she took a deep breath, "Even if I am, I can teach others. That would make two, right?" It seems she quickly recovered from her own heart's heaviness... Or perhaps she is trying to  act tough?

She sighed, perhaps she realized it was not working. It looked like she was remembering something painful... The question of why she had learned Russian, at first she did it for the sake of her parents who did not want her to forget her heritage, later on, Russian became a language between her and her lover.

But now, Alexei was right... She was the only one who could speak the language... She quickly shook her head, trying to fight the sadness that was coming over her.

"How about you? Don't you have something to cherish your origin?" She asked Alexei, in the hope of finding something to distract her.

______________________________________________________________________

Caltha - Capitol Entrance

Belobog Volkov, "Belo"


"Sir, I find it beautiful as well, but, I am confident, if Arusia was given a land like this, Arusia would have built much grand and beautiful place than they did. " Said Belobog, he was studying the structure and the work of his enemies carefully.

He was not really sure how this negotiation would go, but he was not going to let the new environment be hindrance to protecting Maxim and killing his enemies if he must.

"And I do believe this place was not only crafted for beauty, Sir." Said Belobog, remembering what he had read from files from Nadenka's computer. "The doctor that is currently held in prison, her old files indicated this place held great importance for the old Kaddath."

Belobog bite his lips, "But, apart from that, I could not really make out many things from her files. It was coded with weird shapes."

Bunker
- James & Lenka -

“Right,” James replied to Keynes and looked around. He didn’t really know what to do, but getting this place cleaned up seemed like a good idea.

When he turned back around, Rise and Marcus had already wandered off to explore.

“Are you alright with this?” he asked Lenka, referring to the prospect of them all sleeping in one big room together.

“Of course,” she chimed. “I’m not a little girl anymore.” If it did bother her, she certainly didn’t show it.

“But I’m worried about Jax and Lisa,” Lenka said and bit her lip. James looked at her questioningly and she filled him on what Luke had told her.

James put a hand on her shoulder. “Don’t worry, I trust them and Keynes to find a way. For now let’s focus on making this place feel a bit more like home.”

Lenka nodded. “I’ll start looking around for some cleaning supplies,” she said and turned to the door on the left to find the supply room. “Do you know if there’s any food?” she asked over her shoulder.

James shrugged. “Rise might know,” he said.

“Luke, do you mind going with Marcus and Rise to see if you can get the bunk room cleaned up a bit?” he asked the young man. “And ask Rise if she wants to take a look at the kitchen to see if we need some supplies for cooking.”

“Meanwhile, I’m going to see if I can’t get the generator working,” he added and turned towards the service elevator that would take him to the basement and the generator room. “I’m really not a fan of dim lights and enclosed spaces.”

Bunker
Luke Jaron

Luke sighed in relief as it looked like Lenka did not catch what he accidentally said, and what Keynes said did not bothered him much as he had trained in mountains for years and he had taken shower in open world before.

Well, it did not bothered him much until he realized that there were ladies in the group. Then again, as long as he himself be careful not to interrupt the ladies, he thought of it as not a problem.

When Keynes left the group, he had given cleaning duty to everyone and Luke was fairly confident in that area as he always started his morning with cleaning up duty; he did not enjoy it much back then, but this cleaning was little different...

However, before he could even start with the duty, James and Lenka's conversation caught his attention. He was not trying to eavesdrop on their conversation, but with the environment they were in, it was hard not to.

Luke rubbed his neck, little bit faulting himself for burdening Lenka with the worries of missing two members. He silently fault himself for not good at encouraging others, too.

Soon James come over to Luke after speaking with Lenka. Luke nodded as James told Luke what to check up with Rise, "Sure, I could do that" Said Luke, even if it was new environment for him, Luke was quite confident he could catch up to those two.

"Hope generator down there won't give you too much trouble." Said Luke; Luke was sure James could take care of it well, but after seeing how Lenka was affected with the news of Lisa and Jax, he really did not like the idea that James being hurt as well. "I will be back soon."

Luke went to the direction where Rise and Marcus went, and it was not hard for him to find them as their footsteps were louder than his. Their voices were not loud to hear it from the hall, but they were speaking loud enough for Luke to hear them out.

Luke learned surprising people isn't nice, but as he was too far away from them, he thought he would just quickly catch up to them to say hi. He followed them quick and soundlessly without much effort and was planning to make sound when they could see each other.

Aegis

- Marcus -

Marcus glanced over his shoulder before tossing his bag onto one of the beds. A decision he immediately regretted, as it caused a cloud of dust to rise up around him, leading to a small coughing fit.

"Has anyone ever told you that subtlety isn't one of your strong points?" Marcus asked as he stepped away from the bunk, waving his arm through the air to clear it. "And geez, this place clearly hasn't been used in a while."

Coughing one more time, Marcus stepped to the next bunk and ran his finger through the layer of dust on top of it. The line was obvious, even in the dim light. Oh yeah, cleaning in here was going to be a nightmare.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

High General's Chamber

- Alina -

Alina turned worried eyes towards her old friend. If she'd known something like this would come up, she might not have invited him back to the Capitol. He was making progress in his new life, and the last thing he needed were more reminders of his old one.

"I'm not sure that there will be negotiations." She began with a weak smile. "Much of that hinges on the validity of the girl's claims, and until we've sorted that part out, no real conversation can take place."

"I assume you already have a plan then?" Keynes asked as he stepped into the office, giving Lecarde a nod.

"I don't think this is a situation we can approach with a plan." Alina responded, lowering herself into her chair. "There are too many variables to determine potential outcomes. Until we have more information, a plan would simply lock us into a course of action that might not be the best."

She noted the approval in Keynes' eyes as he nodded. "You're learning."


"So, how would you like to proceed then?"

An excellent question. If only she had the right answer to go with it.

"The first step is verifying her claim." Alina sighed. "With the research team in the Capitol, that should take about an hour with a blood sample, assuming she's willing to provide one."


"Once we have that information, we can proceed from there. I've told the staff to put them in Raidon's old conference room." She gave Lecarde a meaningful look. "So, even though I'll be the only one in the room with them for the initial meeting, you're welcome to observe through the two-way mirror."
