Canteen: Rugal

Devon just shook his head at the arrogant woman and called to Boss. "Maybe a few waters for me and the two riders over here?" He motioned to Ton-Ton and Cadolbolg, both perched on Devon and happily munching away at the delicious sammiches.

Watching Rugal's statement gave the man an idea for a new style of bluff, although it'd take some commitment to get that kind of bluff to work properly. In the meantime, he pulled a guitar from a messenger bag style backpack and atarted going through some improvisation. Rugal had heard him in the bar, but those that hadn't heard him there would be in for a surprise.

Med Bay: David

She nodded. "Shouldn't be too bad. Any time ya wanna get started on that, I'll be good to go. Who knows? Maybe we can both pick somethin' up in that, ya know?"

Canteen: Rugal

"...My Mistake..." Rugal merely answered, still not convinced she was who she said she was as he took a seat down at the table she was at.
Bison, if you are in my head, know that you don't fool me... He thought as he awaited Boss to "Poof" in their orders as Devon played the gutiar.

Med Bay: David

"Fair enough. To the Training Room." David said as he lead the way out.
A brief walk later and they were there, David setting up a basic firing range with Bow and Arrow Targets.
"Right, first things first, you know how to use a ranged weapon so lets try your aim, shall we?" He said as he sat down on a folding chair and awaited Melethia to snipe the targets with her bow.

Kura could her some doubt in his voice. "Still not convinced, eh?" she said as her eyes changed to the three tomoe sharingan.

Then the girl held up her right hand as it was cloaked in electricity. "I'm still trying to master my affinities, so i can use them together for jutsu purposes. I'm also training on one handed signing. Talk about a pain in the ass to do." she explained as her hand stopped cracking with electricity. "Anyways... you don't seem as evil as she described.

Canteen: Devon

As he continued onto another song, Devon thought on Kurakumo's statement along with the outfit she wore. If she's looking to get help, she's not going to find it all too easy with how she's acting. After all, not many want to work with someone so full of themselves. Still, since he was in the flow and partially since nobody had wanted to bother the musician fully in his craft, he decided to stay out of the conversation.

Basic Firing Range: Melethia

Melethia began loosing arrows at the targets, but David noticed that most of the arrows were in the biceps or the calves - more places that would cause a lot of pain if someone was in a fight and lower their options first. There was even a good number of shots to the groin area, a place that would mean her enemy would be unable to do much as they bled out rather fast from one of the many important veins or arteries in that area.

True to her statement earlier (And that experience with that Everbright hammer), she did not fight clean if these targets were proof.

Matt didn't catch the smirk from Gamma since he was busy taking a drink. "I know that guy, worked for him a couple times. The guy's calm but extremely brutal. Every assassin and bounty hunter that have gone after him have wound up with their head on a pike, which he then spreads around the internet," Matt told him. There was a commotion behind and they both briefly looked to see what it was before turning back. "I'm gonna get going since all this heroic stuff in one place is making me sick of it," Gamma said to Matt.

"I know what you mean. I can only handle it certain doses myself. I'll walk you back to the hangar since I want to get away from it as well," Matt before they both got up to leave. Gamma picked up the device he planted earlier and tucked away in his pocket. When they got to the hangar Gamma made another on those platforms for himself and parked his dirt bike on it. "I gotta ask before you go. Who are you really?" Matt asked him. Without hesitation Gamma took off his helmet to reveal the face of Kenneth Black. "I have more contracts for you when done with whatever you're doing here. You should also tell the heroes I was here, I'm sure they'll get a kick out of it," Ken told Matt. Matt was stunned for a couple seconds before shaking hands with him. "You got some balls pulling this off. I'll also hold you to your word on those contracts," Matt told him before he flew away.

Matt was shaking his head in disbelief and quietly laughing to himself during his walk back to the canteen. "You guys will never believe who that was," Matt started as he entered and sat down. "That was Kenneth Black himself."


Rugal merely stared at Kura after she said that.
"...That was another me..." He confessed, recalling the time he'd tear her head clean off her shoulders without a moments thought.
"Just know that your mother wasn't a saint either..." He added, not really wanting to go into detail.
And with Matt's announcement, he didn't have to.
"That was Kenneth Black himself."
"...Kenneth Black?...On this ship?..." He said in a unbelieving and somewhat concerned tone.
In a quick movement, he wrapped his hand around Matt's throat and held him up a good foot or two off the ground
"Where is he? Tell me!" He demanded, knowing Kenneth's pendant for causing totally mayhem.

Basic Firing Range: Melethia

David woo'd at Melethia's skill with a bow, wincing slightly each time she nailed a target in the crotch.
"Yikes...Soooo...remind me again what you need me for? I mean..." He said as he brought over one of the furthest targets and examined the surgeon like precision that she used to disable him.
"...Not really seeing what can be improved here..." He said in a slightly annoyed tone.
Christ...Best training in the EU and all the guns I could ever want...and this 12 year old bitch can match me with a fucking bow and arrow...

"Okay...Well...I guess a Gun is a good fallback option..." He said, trying to shake off his resentment before changing the settings to that of a Gun Range with a wide selection of weapons, from pistols to extremely large energy weapons.
"So....Take your pick..." he offered, letting her pick out whatever guns she wanted.

Basic Firing Range: Melethia

Melethia heard the annoyance and looked at him. "What do you mean, there's nothing to be improved on? You think I can't see how you fight and pick up some things? It's how I picked up my stuff, after all. Just focusing on how you fight only gets someone so far." She picked up a few handguns, testing them for balance and to find out which one would sit right in her hand. After a while, she found a revolver to test out.

A bit at the range with the gun showed she was more than a bit unfamiliar with it, and there was so many holes in how she shot that it would be hard to choose a starting point. There would be a lot of training in a lot of different areas if she wanted a firearm as a backup. It would also help her with redesigns of the wristgun more, so it would definitely be worth looking into.

With her sharingan active, everything went slowly. Kura saw rugal get up and beginning to reach for Matt's throat. At the same time he began to do this, she had activated her chidori and was already moving. By the time Rugal had finished his sentence, she already had a hand on the front of his massive throat and a chidori sitting mere milimeters off of the base of his neck, all the while perched atop the man's broad shoulders.

All of it happened in essentially a flash. Kura pushed herself from her seat and kicked off the table, using her non electrified hand to anchor herself down and spin her around with momentum to land on his shoulders. Anyone in the canteen who didn't have a form of advanced perception would have missed the details and only saw the three people change positions.

"Holding a man in a chokehold at the mention of a mere name. You're not the same person you were before eh? Bull-fucking-shit. This rugal fits the description perfectly." she said and adjusted her position. "Now, release the man before i put this through your neck, paralyzing you and killing every nerve in your body as well." Kura demanded.

"He just left you fucking asshole. Now let me down, there's a bottle of vodka with my name on it," Matt said, annoyed at the whole situation.

Basic Firing Range: Melethia

"Look, You saw how fucking spot on you were! Hell, I'd have trouble making some of those shots! I don't even think you need a gun!" David said as Melethia picked a revolver and began to fire it at a few targets, the kick-back affecting her like it did for him back in the training room.
"...You're holding it wrong. Two hands, Right on the butt, left to secure it." He sighed before showing her how to properly hold it.
He then watched her take aim at the targets again.
"...Tell me...when you aim your bow at someone, what do you do? Pretend they are someone you hate? Block everything else out?"


"And you didn't try to stop him!?" Rugal shouted before he realized that Kura had landed on his shoulders and had him in a position she could easily kill him in.
"Grrrrr...." He growled before dropping Matt and sitting back down, unhappy that her of all people pointed this out.
"...In my defense, Even I know that Kenneth Black is bad news. That's it, I don't care what anyone says, we need to get some kind of security set up on this ship. If he can get on board, anyone can." He added, the irony of the fact that was how he got on the ship in the first place not being lost on him.

Canteen: Devon

He finished playing as the scene finished. "How about we all calm down and think about this for a second? It won't do us any good to get all worked up if this Kenneth Black really is that bad. A bit of time to think about it now might save a lot of trouble later on." By this point, the two riding on Devon were fast asleep, with crumbs falling from them onto his shirt.

Basic Firing Range: Melethia

Melethia shook her head, "Well, I usually try to read their patterns, stuff like that. After a bit, ya notice people fall into patterns in fights. Call it part of their training or whatever, but every person falls back to a few things. pick that kind of stuff apart, you'll make them miserable. Kinda like with you in the exercise earlier." She did the hold as David suggested, but even with it, her aim was still nowhere near something that David would be satisfied with signing off on.

"I mean, your fighting relies on your vision. No fault of your own, but someone makes it to where you can't see and you're screwed. it's something that happens with anyone that wants to keep people at range for their business." The detached tone that the girl spoke in was close to Slindis, which was more than a bit disturbing considering her age. What happened to letting kids be kids?

She hopped down off his back and let her chidori deactivate. she landed and sat back down as she was before. "I don't doubt that you've changed, but you're as bad as me and my mother with anger control." Kura said to him, crossing her legs while she had them up.

Canteen: Devon

As the hotheaded (At least to Devon) Uchiha crossed her legs and gave the appearance that she was waiting on that food, Devon walked over to her with the instrument still in his hand and cleared his throat before talking to her again. "I know he's more than a bit hotheaded, but if Amaya told you much about the sip, she would have let you know that there's plenty of people that were not fond of the crew. Even with one of them won over, there's still more foes than friends."

"Well, it's easy to make foes. I have a longer list than most people on this ship and i'm not even in my twenties yet." Kura said to the boy. "What's your name? you never gave it to me..."

Canteen: Devon

He put the guitar to his side as he pulled a chair up. "Name's Devon. It's a bit forward for you to assume you have that many enemies, even if they could be simply inherited from family. Just take it easy and unwind for a bit here. The most you'll have to do here is probably handle your own cooking and cleaning when we're not off doing something, but then again it's a good skill to have." He made sure not to mention the Imps there, because he'd rather not have this Uchiha go after them just because they didn't want to pick up after her.

Basic Firing Range

David merely nodded, understanding how he was over-powered earlier.
"...Yeah....Just keep in mind I'm never usually that close to a target. Sniping is all about range, you set yourself up, take aim, fire, get out before anyone notices you were there." He explained as he handed her another clip of ammo.
"That and well...That angel war was something else. Nothing prepares you for something like that..." He said, remembering the Capitol Building coated in blood.


"Devon's right, you know." Rugal interjected as he took a drink of his water.
"Everyone on this ship could have killed me at any time once the war was over, but they didn't. This is a strange, strange place alright..." He added, still amazed just how easily they accepted him back then.

Kura shrugged. "You people are a strange bunch..." she commented then thought for a minute. "Rugal, you can control the energy inside your body? right?" she asked him while getting out two scrolls and paining on them with black ink. On one of them, she bit her thumb and smeared some blood across it.


"...Yes, Indeed I can." Rugal said before gathering a small around of Ki energy in his hand and then letting it fade.
"It's a basic skill in a wide array of fighting styles, for projectile attacks, Defense, Enhancing my attacks...Tell me, why do you ask?..." He asked, keeping his guard up.
Just in case.

"I'm asking because i just realized i don't have a summoning partner. I'm going to be reverse summoned the second i try to summon anything, so i'll need a way of getting back quickly." The uchiha said, tossing him the scrolls. "One will disappear, then open up the remaining one and activate the seal by putting your energy through it. OK?" she asked him.


Rugal was confused by this to say the least.
"...So, if you try to summon anything, you will be summoned away by something else? And would thus need to be summoned back?...That sounds extremely counter-productive..." He said as he felt the scrolls.
"Just where are you "Reverse Summoned" every time you use that Ninjutsu nonsense?" He then asked, he was never really fond of all the strange quirks of Ninja arts, hence why he rarely touched them.

"No, only this once. Because i don't have a sumoning contract, it will teleport me to their home and i'll need to create a contract to summon them. However, once i have this contract, they'll be summoned to myself each time i use the jutsu and i won't be going anywhere. I just need you to do this, just this once so i can get back to the ship quickly." she explained to him.


"I see...I think." He answered as he stuffed the scrolls into his jacket pocket.
"So Tell me, Akasumi. How did she survive? After being beheaded that is." He asked, wondering what ever did happen to the Snake Princess after the Wedding of Dillon and Amaya.
(He was there, but he wasn't about to tell her that)

"Well, according to my mom, she had spent an EXTREMELY long time burning in hell, then was revived as a sort of twisted part of a wish from some guy named calypso. After that my mom has prettymuch turned from bad to good. I mean, she did mess with my aunt's wedding, but it was all in good humor between them. They are sisters after all. Anyway, be back in a few. Toodles." she said and did a number of handsigns before biting her thumb. "Summoning jutsu!" the girl said and pressed her thumb to the ground.

There was a poof and she was gone.

Five minutes later

one of the scrolls disappeared.

Storm (and Alpha).
Location: AA universe | Rising Dawn | Canteen.
Time: ???.

"Well I haven't seen him yet."
Storm tried to not think of anything but he worried.
He did not want anyone to discover his past.
Only one girl has seen it.
And she is in his phone.

"(Great, now two people can read my mind. Miku and now ... ugh ... don't know her. Well this will be awkward, especially since she can hear this right now.")

Storm sighed afterward, he looked at his phone's background and it was blue.
She had felt his sadness once more.

OOC: Sorry this isn't really responding to many. I'm just trying to get back in the swing of things.

Outside the training room: Slindis, Teri, Garm

Sadei, Slindis. That's my name. The Paladin slowly backed up, doing her best to conceal her shock at what had been found out. Still, Teri could see that her teacher was more than a bit rattled.

Teri noticed her teacher's reaction to the speaking staff, but kept her resolve. If she wanted to get to the bottom of this, she'd have to press forward,

"So you DO know her.... Mum, what's going on? How do you two know each other? And, why do you look so scared? Sadei, are you remembering anything either?"


Angelus' ears perked with curiosity about this whole Akasumi business as the Uchiha girl made her entrance into the Canteen, and wondered to herself how the faux Snake Princess had managed to survive,

"Last we saw of her, she was killed by the judges who sent us to hell... Caim, what do you make of this?"

At this point, Caim was finishing up his conversation with Furiae, and after a moment to close it out, answered, "... Wouldn't be the first someone's returned from the dead, would it?"

He inclined his head quietly towards Jenny, "However, we'll keep an eye out, if you'd like. I wasn't really paying attention to the proceedings, but it is never bad to be cautious of whomever this new woman may be..."

In the meantime, the warrior watched with an amused smile as the Cuties continued their little nap on Devon; and wondered how the two manage to not fall off. Or, for that matter, why Devon didn't move them.


Rugal watched as the child known as Kura disappeared.
With her gone, he relaxed a little and appeared deep in thought, There was something extremely off about that child in his head, something inside her seemed far too familiar to him.
...Nah, Akasumi wouldn't let him get that close...would she?....Then again, Mind Control...
Ewwww, that's a image that'll haunt me to my grave...
He thought as he used his Slashing Aura to draw blood and trigger his scroll in a manner like she did to bring her back to them.


Jenny's playful demeanor faded as Storm's mood sank.
"Oh...Don't worry, I don't go rooting around people's heads without asking. But if you do have a problem, I would be happy to help you." She said in a calm tone.
Her experience with the group and it's near endless supply of personal demons allowed her to clearly see that something was wrong with him.

There was a poof of smoke and she was standing back in the room with them. There were a few feathers and her hair looked ruffled. Though, she held her wrist up triumphantly as there was what appeared to be a tattoo of a bird and feather on it now.

"I go it.." she said and sat back down. "Those birds.... freaking persistent..." kura commented and sighed.


"...*Sniff*...Those bird droppings?..." He asked as he smelled the rank odor of the Hawks on Kura.
"You know, while you were gone, I was wondering who your father was. I mean, Not many people could match your mother in a wide array of fields. You're father must have been someone powerful..." He rather bluntly asked.

"Don't know who he is. My mother provide me a description though. She told me he is a massive man and likes military uniforms." she said rather relaxed, but rugal could tell that her muscles were involuntarily tensing up from anger inside of herself. "She did say he was a member of your cartel."


Rugal nodded as this fears were confirmed.
"...Bison...You're father is a man named Master Bison. I remember him, Egotistical. Fearsome, in his own eyes anyway. Powerful." He explained, recalling the former dictator.
"...I sensed some of his power within you, but...Bison wouldn't be a match for your mother. How did they..." He didn't finish, wanting to hear it from her.

Canteen: Devon

Devon tried to not disturb the two sleeping on him as he heard the name drop of M. Bison. Now, he hadn't played Street Fighter much at all, but somehow he knew that name from watching that with someone... It wouldn't be good news at all. The two on his shoulders, perhaps noticing the slight shift in his stance, fidgeted around in their sleep.

Training Room: David

Melethia continued firing the weapon, although it was clear that it was more luck than anything else when she got the shots right. "Well, If you're that kind of thing, why not set up the area in the first place? With that kind of thing, it's better to work it to your advantage. And if they get close, stuff like leg traps or something like that. Plus, if it gets to close range, those things give ya the time to get out of there." For a kid that had pulled off that stuff with the bow earlier, why was she having problems with a simple handgun?

Outside the training room: Slindis, Teri, Garm

Slindis was still visibly jarred as the implications went through her head. She'd last seem Sadei when she was just learning how to talk, but there was no mistaking the feeling. Without missing a beat, she tried to calmly let the staff go, even though there were extremely slight tremors in her hands.

And she'd shoved the staff holding her godchild in her bag. "...I think I need to go..." She started to make moves to head elsewhere when Sadei talked to Teri.

She does feel really familiar, Teri. But why? Did she not like me? Did she? Gah, it's so friggin' confusing!

She heard rugal and it gave her exactly what she had been searching for. A name, she could put a name to her father. Her hand began to crackly with a few sparks of electricity here and there. "Tell me where he is, now. I need to know where he is NOW. SO I CAN SLICE HIS FUCKING GUT OPEN AND MAKE HIM DANCE AROUND WITH HIS INNARDS BEING DRAGGED OUT SLOWLY!" she began to scream, now sitting up with her hands on the table, her right hand beginning to scorch the table an electrify it. Her chest was heaving with heavy breathing, her sharingan fully activated, absolutely floored about this.

Canteen: Rugal

Rugal merely put his hands on her shoulders and gently pushed her back down into her chair in a gesture that said "Calm Down".
"...I don't know, After the Angel war, his base was attacked and he fled. He could be anywhere by now." He bluntly said, staying alert if Kura was to act out.
"Now, I haven't any leads on his location, nor those of his comrades, but the SECOND I catch wind of his location, I would be glad to tell you where he is."

Training Room: David

"Well, I get the premeditation angle and whatnot, but unless I set traps where-ever I go. Now, it's okay if I'm defending, but it's not so easy offensively. You of all people should know that." David answered as he knelled behind her to get an idea of her POV.
"Remember to breathe as you fire, just like a Bow. Come on, You can draw a bow but you can't keep a steady aim?"
