IC - Roen/Nenda - KNPD HQ: "Calm down," Nenda ordered to Alan and Roen as the latter raised his war hammer into a threatening position. The larger being scowled, though complied nonetheless. The Vortixx looked at him before turning back to Alan, addressing the Kasuba.
"My apologies; we didn't know anyone else was in here. My name is Nenda; my partner is Roen. We're top members of the Guild of Tyis who are partaking in a joint mission against the Director and Lyxek, as both of them have put the island in a peril that the Council of Tyis has deemed too dangerous to leave left alone; at the moment Dodera, our friend, is at the Ring HQ and is most likely fighting Lyxek at this very moment in an attempt to assassinate him. Judging from what you just said, it sounds like you're a former KNPD officer; maybe you could help us out here or something. I'll admit that we were sent here to kill him, but if you can give us a hand in simply catching the Director, which may actually be the better option, then we can still end the war."
Behind Alan, a couple of the screens silently flickered as the power in the room corrected itself, one of them displaying a glowing red eye for a fraction of a second -- too quick for anyone to notice. Likewise, his attempts to use his element revealed that his powers still could not penetrate the walls, though they could be used through the entrance that had just been made.
IC - Dalmia/Sword of Ybrus - Warehouse: Dalmia chuckled as Vertak held him. "Now that is just plain funny!" His laugh faded away as his body turned into a sort of fine dust, before picking up again as he rematerialized a short distance away. "For future reference, Matoran of Gravity, it's not nice to attack people just for playing a joke on you. But if it softens you up at all, my name is Dalmia. I was here before you were, looking for what you, too, were searching for -- the source of that energy noise. And it looks like I found it! Or, well, you found it, but still. I was looking first. Do you know just what you have released?"
"I sense a great evil from you..." the Sword of Ybrus said, pointing at Dalmia now. "I sense your motives! I know what you intend to do! AND I SHALL NOT ALLOW IT!" The sword zipped off towards the Ring member, straight towards his midsection. Dalmia merely stepped back and moved through a self-portal to a spot above the group, unfurling his wings to slow his descent.
"Oh, you spoiled it," Dalmia said, his tone reflecting his disappointment. "Fine. Yes, I'm evil. I'll break my plan, skip the monologue and say it flat out: That sword is coming with me." He raised his hand, willing a shield of dust-like energy to form around the ancient sword before beginning to pull it towards himself. "And I won't take 'no' for an answer; I've been searching for too long and encountered too many annoyances at this point to let you have it, hero or not."
IC - Vailian/Niaka - Jial Island: Eremia's ploy worked, as most of the other, already panicked ground-bound Niaka took notice of the mind-controlled one, instantly flying after it; as Vailian had predicted, a few of the others stopped for a moment, noting the unnatural response from their brethren before taking flight with the others, waiting for the opportune moment to strike at the Delta 51's weak spot.
