IC: "Yes, but intolerance is not condoned among pirates. I myself believe there is a Great Spirit, and that his laws are laws of general kindness, and are to be taken rather loosely. I also believe that there is a Karz, the deepest circle of which is reserved for betrayers and mutineers. Unless of course the mutiny is with good reason, which against me it would not be." He took out his rum bottle, only to remember that it had nothing in it. "And then there's Bahokosar, who is a full atheist. See? We serve all kinds, a rather kind and respectful practice, eh?"

IC: "So you're going to escort me to a--" He stopped when he realized that meant he would have to pay for the rum, a feat which he could not accomplish due to having run out of counterfeit coins, and the fact that his most recent raids were to get the simplest of things, a ship and a crew, rather than loot."Never mind the rum, I'm fine now." Thankfully, Naona could not read minds.

IC: (Hari)Hari's turquoise eyes followed Krayn as he began to leave the hospital room. She got up from leaning against the wall and followed him into the hallway. She walked up from behind him, the hospital was clean, by Po-Koro standards, not like the one in Ga-Koro. Hari finally spoke up, wrapping her hand in Krayn's."Good work officer," She smiled. "Listen, I don't agree with what you did back there, but in the end you still got the pirates. I haven't been in thick of it like you or Naona has. I have no right to judge you for that. No one really does," Hari stopped, what else could she really add. It was an apology but Hari felt she would never agree to methods of shooting first and then asking questions later. It countered the idea of what an officer was supposed to do. It violated every tenet of how she was raised, what she was taught to believe in. The fact it was so easy, that was what really sickened her. Krayn hadn't a second thought when he shot the pirate in the leg. No warnings, no peaceful solution, just opening fire. Hari refused to wear such feelings on her sleeve as they made their way through the hospital. Krayn needn't feel guilty for doing what he thought was right, because in the end it worked out. "Well I guess we should get back to the ship, we still have the Turaga to get back."

IC: Krayn"But you have a point." Krayn replied quietly, not looking Hari in the eye. "A few months ago, I wouldn't have fired first. I never would have even considered it. Protocol dictates quite clearly that a guard is never to fire the first shot."Protocol was written to govern the enforcers, to watch the watchers. Laws were created to keep the people safe, emotionally and physically. The De-Toa reflected. And it works. The happier the people are, the better guards are doing their jobs.But there is an interesting correlation. The best guards are the least emotionally stable.

IC: (Hari)"Yes. Some officers deem it necessary to fire first, especially when engaging enemies that are know to be hostile or pose a threat. However turning our backs on it protocol. Turning our backs on the tenets which Guardsmen were based on, we stop being guards." Hari paused, realizing that could come across as an insult as they know walked through the streets of Po-Koro. The hustle and bustle of the town, the haggling of vendors and customers, the noise of rahi, and salesmen bugging tourists, all that noise seemed muffled as Hari talked to Krayn."Krayn I'm not saying the you're not good enough to be a guard cause you're probably one of the best, but when we cross that line, it is a lot harder to come back, as Toa and as Guardsmen. This island is filled with Toa have torn up the code that governed their ability to stick the their morals and it made them Toa. I'd say the most sane of us don't want to be heroes, we just want to do our job and what's right. I just worry Krayn, it's not healthy, having that kind of mentality." Hari went silent, she wasn't sure what to expect from Krayn. Hari turned her head to the ground, not sure if she crossed a line or irritated Krayn.

IC: Krayn"People out there... They haven't just torn up the code. They've stomped on the pieces, and thrown them on the fire." Krayn replied, remembering the Bearers he had met. Utu, Dorian, Succubus. Three beings' who's entire existence was an affront to the code. "Sometime, protocol doesn't tell you what to do. Sometimes following it would lead to worse than if it was broken.""And when that happens, the white hats become gray."

IC: Darien - Po-Wahi -

IC: "Yes it is, not too far from here actually," Darien said, pointing in the opposite direction that Wokiya had been traveling. She had apparently passed the village without realizing it. No wonder she wound up out here. "Are you well enough to walk?" Darien asked."Yes I am, thank you," the Ga-Matoran said, rising to her feet. Truthfully, there was still a very faint wooziness that afflicted her as she stood on her feet, but it wasn't anything serious -- nowhere near as bad as just half an hour before. The two began their trek across the desert, feet pressing through the hot ocean of sand in broad daylight. Wokiya had, at first, deciding to stay silent, not wanting to risk revealing her connection with the Gentry. However, she noticed that the silent walk to the stone village started to feel very long, and she could feel her body start to complain about the heat."So, what's your story?" Wokiya said looking up at Darien, "What brought you to Po-Wahi? Wouldn't Le-Wahi be a more comfortable region?"She chuckled softly after that last question, implying that she was not that serious about it. But the Ga-Matoran did find it curious how different people always wound up in environments that they won't necessarily thrive off of.

IC: Darien - Po-Wahi -His story. He wasn't sure where to begin, or if he could safely mention the fact that he had been a prince. Makuta had killed his father and most of the royal court, if they knew he was still around he'd become a target as well, probably best to keep that a secret for now. "Well, I used to live in Ta-koro actually. I know my tastes may seem strange for a Toa of Plantlife but, here I am. I was sent on a...mission here and I saw how hard the people of Po-koro have it. And with the few amount of Toa around here to defend the villiage, I felt it was my duty to stay and do what I can."And that was more or less the truth, even if he had also been trying to lay low from the sites of the Dark Lord and his minions.

IC: (Hari)"Doesn't mean you should be a grey hat. Doesn't mean you have to be." Hari said under her breath. "Krayn...you opened fire on these...rather incompetent pirates. You put their backs up against a wall before giving them the time to verbally explain themselves. Did you even consider what a normal officer might have done, what I was going to do?" She sighed, her torqouise eyes downcast as they walked the desert path. "I'm worried about what stepping over that line is going to do to you, you can't be paranoid about everything. Those rules aren't just there for the people, they're there for you, for me, for every officer. That code is what keeps us from dropping down to their level."

IC: KraynThere were many responses Krayn could have made. He could have pointed out that his attack was never meant to kill, merely to incapacitate. The pirates were never in any real danger, as long as they did not resist. He could have pointed out the deaths caused by following protocol, or the idealism and optimism that it relied on. Optimism and idealism better suited for a better world, rather than the one in which they lived.But he didn't. "You have a point."*******************************************************Unknown to the De-Toa, messengers had reached the village, all bearing copies of the same posters. Brief words were exchanged between the officers on duty within the villages and the couriers from Onu-Koro, explaining the situation, explaining how a group of prisoners had escaped. More often then not, the guards let out a sigh when they were told. Countless villains were already on the run all over Mata Nui, and now it seemed there was a new set.The posters were left with the local guards while the couriers set out, either to return to their village, or to find a place to stay for the night. Their job was over.But for the local enforcers, the job was just beginning. Minutes after the posters arrived, they were posted at every major location in the village, from the guard HQ to the most frequented inns. They were scattered about the village, pinned to signposts in every square. All proclaimed the same message, request, and reward.Depicted on each poster was a highly detailed representation of each member of the Maasi, drawn by skilled artists while they had been imprisoned, their appearances eternally set down in full color. Below these pictures was a simple message:Wanted: Toa MaasiDangerous group of Toa, responsible for extensive damage to Ga-Koro, threats to shopkeepers in Ko-Koro, and several crimes in Onu-Koro. No regard for law enforcement, or other officials of the law. Proceed with caution.Reward: 10,000 Widgets

IC: (Hari)Hari moved closer to Krayn, wrapping her arm around his abdomen. She leaned against the fit Toa slightly and sighed a bit, but then smiled. The green and yellow Toa finally spoke again."Yeah, but it doesn't mean I'm right either, honey. You're doing what you is right, what you know is necessary. I'll support you as long as...this..." Hari tapped Krayn's chest. "...This tells you it's right." Hari leaned up and kissed the Toa on the cheek, it would still take a few minutes before they got to the ship, before they had to act professional, before they had to get their heads screwed on straight. She wasn't being completely true, if Krayn was convinced that something truly evil could achieve good ends she wasn't sure if she could go along with it, but that wasn't really likely to happen. Krayn was better than that.
