IC: Nakenah / Central City Bank
As two mysterious Toa and an armored Toa-like figure rushed out of the building, Nakenah appeared from the shadows of the alleyway. She had no idea what had transpired in the bank vault, and didn't bother pursuing them as they rushed up the roof; they couldn't see her, and she had not been directed to interfere in the least bit. Still, she took careful note of what she had observed - and that was at least two Toa, if not three, who were very prepared for the situation. One of them was Kra-Toa, even.
She took careful mental note of the situation, and continued watching the group as they moved up. Briefly, she considered sending some kind of message detailing all of the notes via voice message; however, she had made no noise as of yet, and she was worried that they might have a mask of sensory aptitude or similar device upon them. With the volume lowered completely, she pulled out her communicator and send a quick text message to her superiors -
"Three robbers exited the bank vaults. One Toa of Shadow, one unidentified Toa, one unknown with powerful armor. First male, other two female. Continuing non-interference mission. Will keep careful watch."
IC: Kinksh / Ga-Koro-Nui
Kinksh continued with his rather relaxing time looking out at the starlit night, drinking a martini and otherwise enjoying life as he continued wearing sunglasses despite there being no sun to speak of. After a few minutes, he took them off and said, "You know, you've been watching me for a few hours now. You can step out."
From the darkness emerged a new figure, whom Kinksh had never seen before. He was tall - taller than Kinksh, and slimmer in build, with dark armor inscribed with writing that almost seemed to glow in the dark. The figure wore a large black cloak, with a hood obstructing his exact appearance. A scabbard hung over his back, with a massive greatsword contained within. The figure, though lean, seemed to convey a sense of power. All of this Kinksh saw with the help of a mirror that was down past his feet, and just within his eyesight.
"I am but a guest in your house. It would be wrong to not give you the first word."
"If you dream of being an assassin, I would recommend you not let me move my tongue before going for the move. That's one of the first things they teach you people, is it not? So, how did you find me?"
"Shorter than I expected. If I hadn't been told I was up against a Toa, I would have expected a Steltian. Maybe a Skakdi."
"Well then. I hope you find my home to your liking." Kinksh said, before pulling a lever that rapidly spun his reclining chair around on the floor, so he could face his adversaries. "So, tell me? Kra-Toa? Overtly emotional? Or just fond of the dark? Perhaps all three. Considering the 'evil' stereotype that gets passed around, the other three are far more likely."
"That's for you to find out." the figure replied. Kinksh let out a slight grin. With a single sharp movement, the Toa of Fire was out of his seat, Kakama glowing slightly as quickly drew his warhammer and moved from sitting to standing behind the cloaked figure in what seemed like a single movement. To his surprise, such a feeling had not struck his enemy, who now grasped the greatsword that had previously been sheathed. The figure swung the blade in a rapid motion, releasing a large streak of red energy that flew at Kinksh. The Toa of Fire reacted by releasing an energy blast from his own warhammer. The two clashed and immediately negated each other.
"Impressive." Kinksh said. "Perhaps I should have struck you down at that first pass."
"Less likely an event than you would think." the figure replied. Once again, he swung his blade; Kinksh moved his own in the process, again moving to make a counter. However, this would prove to be a mistake; rather than an energy slice, the figure released a barrage of sharpened icicles in a huge volley, whilst moving at an almost unbelievable speed to dodge the blast Kinksh had released from his hammer. The Toa of Fire attempted to move out of the way, but was grazed by one of the piece of ice in doing so.
This time, there would be no break made for talking. Kinksh immediately moved to release a wave of fire at his adversary, who countered by raising a wall of ice that was almost entirely melted. That which remained shattered apart into a burst of splinters at the beings command, covering the entire room. The figures own mask, whatever it was, allowed him to avoid most of his own splinters, though a few cut him. Kinksh was not so lucky, and numerous small cuts were made in his armor. Nothing enough to draw blood, though.
Fire against ice. In a duel of the elements, Kinksh was at a disadvantage it would seem. However, he still had his own speed and skill with his weapon at his side, and this newcomer was likely no match against him in such a situation. He thus dashed forward, activating the shield upon his arm as he did so. The cloaked Toa swung his sword as Kinksh closed in, but the Toa of Fire countered by raising his shield and slamming into the being. The other Toa was visibly shocked, and stumbled back, allowing Kinksh to make an attack... only to watch his attack miss by a wide margin. What power was this Toa using?
There wasn't much time to question that. The Toa recovered quickly, and grasping his greatsword in but one hand, reached out with the other. Kinksh was shocked to find a freezing touch charged with elemental power grasping his shoulder, causing the blood that flowed with him to start rapidly chilling and turning to ice. In his other hand, he charged a massive burst of fire and caused it to detonate. The force of the explosion tossed the enemy Toa back, into the pool of water lying in the middle of the room, which put out his burning cloak.
Kinksh was now at a disadvantage, though - that attack had almost completely destroyed his arm, and though his own internal body heat and powers were helping him recover. The other figure began to rise as he stood there, moving out of his soaked cloak as he did so and stepping back. With this, he revealed his mask - a Noble Huna. It wasn't. Well, that really helped with explanations.
The Ta-Toa narrowed his eyes in. His enemy wasn't quite on his feet yet - he needed to strike now, or he wouldn't get another chance. He had to move while his enemy was distracted. With that, he charged forward with full Kakama speed to make an attack.
What he didn't count on was how far out the water was spread; as he dashed forwards, that which was at the furthest end suddenly turned to ice, causing Kinksh to slip and fall face down into the water, which instantly turned to ice. From the ice arose clamps, sealing Kinksh in his place. Jagged spikes emerged, piercing him. He cursed.
The mysterious Toa grabbed his sword, and raised it high to deliver the killing blow. Still, Kinksh had one last hand to play - from the darkness, two missiles struck him in the back, shattering the armor there and causing heavy damage. The Toa fell to the ground as a solid metal cat lunged from the darkness, grabbing onto where his Toa armor had been destroyed and ripping it apart. The being reached back and took hold of the beast before tossing it away.
However, the metal cat was quick to return, just as Kinksh was quick to superheat his body and free himself from his icy bonds, stepping up and recovering himself. When he turned to look again, he saw the fate of his 'pet' - the other Toa had grabbed his blade and 'swung' it, basically lifting it up and moving it over his legs, releasing a blast of red energy that sliced through the week plating on the cat and exposing its internal components, some of which were also damaged. The beast began to freeze up as the Ko-Toa fired a powerful blast of ice that caused it to completely freeze over.
That was more than enough to upset Kinksh, whose eyes narrowed in. His arm had almost recovered; his weapon arm was fully prepared. His adversary, on the other hand, had a serious injury and was bleeding. He was also weakened, and just now standing again. Kinksh began charging his elemental powers as he looked at the other Toa, saying, "I hate to tell you this, but it's game over." before releasing a massive cone of fire to incinerate him. The Ko-Toa reacted by putting another wall of ice, absorbing part of the blast. The Ko-Toa continued feeding the wall as the fires kept coming, but it wasn't enough, and Kinksh came out victorious...
... or so it seemed. Once the ashes that were the numerous fine linens and tapestries and rugs that had just been destroyed faded away, Kinksh looked to see the Toa was still standing there. He was burnt slightly, but not badly; he was, however, very wet. He had coated himself in an armored suit of ice. That was why he had lost so easily with the wall against the cone; his attention was elsewhere.
Kinksh attempted to charge another attack, but the other figure shook his head, before raising his hand and causing a long, thin spike of ice to emerge from his hand, moving far across the room and impaling the fire Toa through the heartlight. Kinksh gasped from shock and the sudden pain, and looked down to see blood leaking out of the hole that had been created. The other being grabbed the ice from where he was and snapped it, allowing Kinksh to fall. The long beam of ice snapped as it hit the ground.
The criminal leader was dead.
The strange figure was Rurkon, Toa of Ice. Pulling out his communicator, he sent a message via text - "Naka - the job that you requested is done. Someone else can move in later and retrieve the information. I'll be heading back to base."
OOC: There was an argument at the very beginning where it was debated between people whether or not they were willing to seriously harm or kill their own PCs if it came down to it. The answer?
