IC: Tony Sprocket - Sprocket's Room
"Lockey's our head of security. He's a couple doors down from my quarters. He's kind of stuffy and his taste in movies is pretty lame, but he's kept us safe... so far..."
To Shard, he said, "I think... I think I saw some of them, actually. Not much, I was running away, but when I ran into Lockey I looked back to say sorry and there was someone there I didn't know. I didn't see them long, just for a second. They were big, and they looked like they meant business."
OOC: To be clear, you've been in Lockey's room before. The room you went in before this one belonged to Lochlan Keye. "Lockey" is both a way to shorten "Lochlan", and also what you get if you combine the first part of his first name and the whole part of his last name. Your characters don't have to realise this, of course.
GM IC: ??? - Bridge
"Keep it moving!" snapped a tall burly figure, clad in cloak and impressive hat, into a microphone. "Ye scurvy dogs drop just one of them crates and ye'll be walkin' the plank!"
On the screen before the figure, similarly rough-looking though less well-dressed criminals saluted and resumed their pace in checking the precious cargo. The figure turned back to the room's occupants. "Orroight, ye scallawags! Keep steady!"
"Yes, Cap'n," said the crewmate at the helm, pressing buttons and flipping switches like it was second nature. To the crewmate sitting beside her, she said, "Feels so good to stretch yer legs, innit?"
"I miss the Cap'n's ship," her companion agreed. "Hidin' in a cargo bay? Ain't right fer-"
"Shaddap, ya lily-livered scallywags," the captain snapped at the two, slamming fists on the tops of the consoles. "After this, we'll all have enough booty to last a lifetime! And then some! Now, keep on course! We have some business to attend to, mateys."
