IC: "Consider, did you, that his offer was genuine?" Song suggested, "Such a sum might be paltry to someone older than the Roman Empire, he might think nothing of losing such funds. And to be honest I have failed to see any results from Shaw's actions other than the loss of many soldiers." She turned to the aforementioned Black King, "If I may be blunt, someone else providing strategems may turn out for the better."
IC: Hammer ignored the screaming, holding Kirsty fast, but not uncomfortable tight. He didn't want to inadvertently crush her. For the same reason it was not her who went to help Walter, but Ragger Muffin. A fold of cloth unfurled from her body and bound the broken arm like a cast, before more strands flickered out and hoisted Walter up gently.
Rhino stopped in his progress, turned steadily around with his horn raising sparks from the pipes as it scraped against them.
"Yous two keep calling me names and my knuckles is gonna have words with your noses. Words like 'crunch' and 'ow'. Capiche?"
Alec only answered the various questions once he was sure Rhino had turned back and gone to the front of the group. "I can cover all three of you with one answer. No idea. I can however, try to find a better one to yours," he said, tapping Hannah on the shoulder. "Hey Leech, why'd you bring us here?"
"Well, technically we only needed you. But Caliban was unable to determine which of the mutant signatures was yours so we just hoped we'd get lucky."
Alec froze in his tracks, more visibly scared than when he'd noticed Rhino, "Caliban? You brought Caliban along on this? Holy...I mean for the love of...he's not right in the head anymore man!"
Leech strode over to the wheelchair, pulling a few of the blankets aside to reveal a face bone-white in colour with cheekbones you could use as skewers and odd protrusions, almost like a helmet, around his face. He murmured unintelligibly until Leech put the blankets back over him. "He remains placid as long as I'm suppressing his powers. I brought him with us so I could keep doing so and not risk unleashing his...other selves upon the Morlocks I left behind. And we needed his location powers to find you and the others."
"...what others Leech? What are you doing?"
"Its quite simple Alec. We're going to break a few friends of ours out of prison."

The bells were ringing in the dale
And men looked up with faces pale
The dragon's ire more fierce than fire
Laid low their towers and houses frail
