--IC: Bacchus: The Wastes, en route to the Arena--

Much lower to the ground than his two peers, Bacchus trundled merrily along as fast as his little skyfighter would take him, leaving a trail of tossed-up sand and black smoke in his wake.  Every so often, he would look upward to catch Juno's distinctive striped Rockoh make some sort of course adjustment, an adjustment he would follow her in making very soon after.  Part of him wished that he could be higher up in the sky, feeling the wind on his face... and then the part of him that was afraid of heights shut that desire down completely.

IC: Juno - En Route to Arena

They seem to be keeping up quite well. Fantastic.

Juno could not help but wonder why it was Bacchus chose to cling so close to the ground. Was it a limitation that his ship possessed? Perhaps she could recommend him to a better mechanic that could supply him with a far better ship.

In any case, she gunned her controls, utilising the Rockoh's unique boost. They were getting quite close to the Arena now.

IC: Hadraeka - Tesara

"Mirror." Hadraeka said, having turned around to look directly at her fellow guard.

 

IC: Porangi - Tower Basement, New Atero

Porangi thought about this for a moment. A short moment. A couple seconds at most. It barely even constituted as thinking. It was really just putting the pieces together in his head and draw from them the inevitable conclusion. "Yes. Definitely. Absolutely. "

 

IC: Drukann - Landing at Arena

Drukann landed his craft in one of the usual spots, vaulting out of it and turning to look for Kastir, whom he presumed would land in short order as well.

IC: Arkis - Cliffside (Office)

He backed up further against the wall. "Journey to... th-the surface? You mean... you came from... the C-Chasm?" It was the natural conclusion, with the Agori's... state.

 

IC: Mirror - Tesara

He paused without turning. "Yes?"

 

IC: Kaenis - Wastes

Up ahead of her, Juno started pulling away as her Rockoh's engines flared. Not wanting to get behind, Kaenis also pushed the throttle, turning back to look at Bacchus below and behind her.

IC: Tekmo (Tesara Airspace)

Tekmo did a fancy twirl in the air, then set off in the direction of the Black Spike Mountains, motioning for the others to follow him.

'Iron Never Dies'. Was a hoax? A threat? A warning? A boast? Regardless of whether or not there would be anything in the Mountains, Tekmo resolved he would not rest until those behind this attack were found, and brought to justice. His conviction was unfettered, ironclad... though he questioned the conviction of the others.

Paju seemed decent enough, but it was clear that she was only here because Tekmo had promised to pay her out of his own pocket. Which he didn't have the authority to do, but that bridge would be burned when they crossed it. But those only in it for the money tended to work for whomever offered the better deal.

Akkitu and he had gotten off to a rocky start, and that was before he was arrested for collateral damage during the attack. Tekmo couldn't question his courage and selflessness, but he could certainly question his judgement. He would have watch him to make sure he didn't do anything they'd all regret.

Tarutu had gotten off to an even worse start, though she had apologized for her prior outburst... though it still wasn't clear why she was coming along as well. Did she really regret her behaviour that much? Was she just trying to keep her kin safe? Or something less noble? Questions for later.

Tacitus was most certainly the biggest problem, both figuratively and literally. Not only was he bigger and no doubt stronger than Tekmo (physically, anyway), Tacitus was arrested for deliberately assaulting someone after the chaos had passed, whereas Akkitu was arrested for what was a well-intentioned mistake on his part. The only consolation here was that he had apparently done so in the misguided notion that his victim knew something about the attack he didn't, implying he wanted answers as much as Tekmo did. Fe enslaved a significant number of his own people, and it was suspected that remnants of their debased infrastructure were responsible for this atrocity. Perhaps he had come to the same conclusion he had. Perhaps he was simply a violent brute.

Oh well. In time, all truths would be revealed. If any of this motley crew began to actively work against him, they would be actively working against the Jungle Tribe of Tesara. And then the remnants would be the least of their concerns.

IC: Hadraeka - Tesara

"What Silvana offered were potential answers to cold cases. But we can't afford to risk Tesara's safety for peace of mind. This settlement is depending on our resolve to do what needs to be done. And right now we need to keep our eyes on the problems at hand, problems that for now must outweigh finding truth."

GM IC: Doctor K - The Tower, Basement

"Excellent," the Kestora chittered, "It gets so lonely down here. It'll be nice to have someone less... screamy... to converse with."

GM IC: Karzahni - Arkis' Office

"Is that what you call it?" The voice rasped, "Intriguing. I have so much to learn about this new world. But first... I spent centuries beneath Metru Nui, watching, learning, but I've never seen a being such as yourself... so what are you?"

IC: Mirror - Tesara

"I know..." he sighed. "But what if she's right, and we haven't saved ourselves from what's to come?"

 

IC: Arkis - Cliffside (Office)

Well, that settled it. This... thing wasn't from the world he knew. Arkis' instinct for self-preservation and his curiosity battled for a moment before he answered, "I... I'm a Glatorian. From... Spherus Magna."

"We prepare for the worst." Hadraeka simply said. "In fact, this is exactly the matter we should discuss with the Captain."

 

IC: Porangi - Tower Basement, New Atero

"Great!" Porangi, joyful as could be, simply stood for some moments in something of a power pose with a big dumb grin on his face, before finally turning back to Doctor K. "So do we go take care of that now, or-?"
