Kale Ironshaper- Ostia- Fowadi
IC: The buzzing warble of an incoming message emanated from the sealed compartment below decks. The sound caused Kale's eyes to open, squinting slightly at the bright sun burning down. As another round of the noise cut through the slight fog of drowsiness that hung around him like a cloud the Toa of Iron bolted up and activated his Kakama, vanishing from his spot on the mast and reappearing in front of the door to the radio room.
It was a new addition. With the invention of the readio it had been deemed that a ship like the Fowadi would benefit from being able to keep in contact with headquarters. So, during the refits, an unused room had been given a watertight seal and the radio had been placed inside. Power was supplied by wires connected to a solar panel on the top deck.
Opening the door, Kale stepped in to the lightstone lit interior and picked up the task pad on a nearby table, turning on its recording function as he sat down at one of the chairs scattered around the room.
We should probably get around to cleaning up this place He thought, tapping one foot idly.
The squawking from the radio stopped and silence filled the room for several seconds before a Matroan's voice come through the speakers on the large piece of equipment in the center of the room.
"All Sentinel Units. Prisoner Jazek Rehn has escaped at some point in the last twenty four hours. Subject is to be considered armed and extremely dangerous, several Sentinels were killed when he broke out. Do not try to take him down by yourself."
There was a click and the backround static of the message cut out, the operator having ceased broadcasting. For a good minute there was total silence, even Kale's breathing has dropped below the hearing of all but the most sensitive ears.
Jazek Rehn was the Toa of Sonics who had kidnapped Dehkaz several months ago and tried to kill him. He was a shadow from Dehkaz's past, the one the Captain had worked hard enough to leave behind without phantoms of it appearing out of nowhere. The assassin had been caught and placed in the Ostia prison where he could do no more harm to anybody. Now he was out. Not only was he out but he had killed several of Kale's fellow Sentinels while he was at it.
A low hum slowly grew, those sharp of eye would be able to see the tube on the Toa of Iron's back was vibrating at extremely high speeds.
Kale's empty hand closed on the back of the chair as he got up , tightening until cracking sounds started to emanate from the wood.
That piece of Karzani slime had gone after one of his closest friends, almost killing him, just because he had tried to make a break from the old life and make something of himself. The crew of the Fowadi were family to Kale, nobody touched them and got away with it. Now the monster was free again and had already killed.
I am going to find you Jazek. I am going to hunt you down like the little rahi you are and then I am going to out you in the deepest, darkest hole I can find and throw away the keys. You should be quite at home in a place like that.
With a calmness that belied the rage building inside, Kale made his way out of the room and back up on deck.
"Brukin, watch the ship for me for a bit. I need to take care of something." His voice was cold as glacier cooled steel.
With a mental command to his mask Kale was gone, heading to the jail where the Jazek had escaped.
