Dark Tomoya.
Location: DC Capitol building | America.
Time: 8 am.
Weather: Black clouds.

As the crowd gathered right at the entrance of the Capitol building, Tomoya looked pleased with himself with the chaos he created. The cultists were battling the police, army and the Capitol building guards so Tomoya may have a clear path. D.Tomoya started to chuckled as he saw the cultists start their 'traditions', which involved blood, knives and guts spilling onto the American floor.

Deciding that he has caused enough chaos to make the world leaders flee into the secret underground bunker/escape tunnel of the Capitol building, Tomoya tore off his cultist clothes revealing his armor and new look for battle. Climbing up the steps the Dark Angel could feel multiple presences. A smirk appeared on his face.

"Hmm... Michael's guys have arrived... but also my dear fallen brother. Oh well... I can say hi later... " He said as he got to the top of the stairs but froze as he forgotten something. "Oh right!" He said as he pointed his hands to the floor, black lightning was gathering right underneath his hand and as Tomoya lifted his hand the black lightning created a sword made out of complete darkness.

While Tomoya picked it up, David had a perfect shot of the Dark Archangel.

Airship Rising Dawn - The Bridge
A.I. Vermilion | Jake
"Please Patch me through to the Tower of Andrews AFB. Let's see if a little diplomacy can go a long way."
"One moment... Done."
"Andrews Tower, Andrews Tower, this is the Airship Rising Dawn. I am currently operating in the airspace surrounding Washington DC in support of ground operations to defeat the Dark Angel Tomoya currently inciting Riots. I request permission to enter the DC airspace to provide Close Air Support. Can I count on your Vipers to assist?"


D.C. Battle Grounds - Beachhead
Aftan | Akane | Devon | Ella
Akane looked a little nervous at the prospect of blending in. Nine big fluffy pure gold tails were not easy to hide... And she did not like her pure human form much, it felt so cold and empty.

"Ano, I'm not sure that's such a good idea. Can we link up with anymore of the others? Perhaps a vehicle would suit us better... If only Jake were here, he would find us something. But we'll manage, right minna?" Akane said, clutching a tail.

Aftan | Akane | Devon | Ella

Devon nods. "Good point, Ella. Mind if I clean up first?" The Bard casts the Prestidigation to clean up the vomit from his clothing, leaving him as good as new minus the battered top shirt then extends his right hand to Ella to help her keep steady.

"It could work, but there's a pretty big chance they could notice something's up and all come down on us. Any ideas for what we'd do if it happened like that?" He was more concerned about the possibility of being in a very bad position and being unable to help Ella rather than being scared.


Jenny | Lucifer | Slindis | Teri

Slindis looked Lucifer's injuries over and turned to Teri. "I can aid him, but I'm going to need some help from you, Teri. Some of these wounds are quite severe." Lupito nuzzled Slindis then went near Jenny, and Jenny could hear coherent thoughts from the wolf. ...I can't believe I'm finally back with Slindis....and it's also good that Garm found a cub to aid...

David

As David scanned the idea, He used his line of sight to view the Capitol Building, looking for his target.
"Come on, where are you?..." He said to himself as he looked for the Dark Angel, his tunnel vision preventing him from focusing on anything else.
"DAVID! TOMOYA IS GOING FOR THE WORLD LEADERS!" Gabrielle exclaimed from her post as she got a visual of Dark Tomoya with his sword about to enter the building.
"I can't get a shot!"
"I see him..." He said as he chambered his round and lined up his shot.
This has to hit, I need to at the very least lure him away from the building... He thought as he began to sweat, this would be one of the hardest shots of his life thus far.
Deep breath.
hold.
*BANG!*
Exhale.

Tomoya was enjoying jogging up the stairs, humming the Rocky Theme as he did.
*BANG*
He remained unfazed as a bullet harmlessly passed by his head and into the stairs in front of him.

"....what?..." David said to himself, he....Missed?
"HE'S STILL STANDING! COME ON DAVID!"
"...no, no I don't miss!" He reminded himself as he took several more shots, each fuelled by anger and fury.

5 more ill placed shots raced past the Dark Ones head.

"...No....NONONONO!" He said as he reloaded and unloaded the entire clips in Tomoya's direction, screaming like Rambo as he did, each shot barely missing, adding to his frustration.
"David? What the hell is going on over there!?"

The closest he got was right beside one of the Angel's feet, he didn't even recoil or anything.
*BANG! BANG! clickclickclick*
As David realised he was now completely out and could only watch as Tomoya reached the top of the stairs, going as far as to actually turn around and hold his arms up in the air, just like Rocky, the Perfect shot.
"...Not like this, you son of a-!" He said before pulling out his M500 to try and hit what he couldn't with a sniper rifle.
*BANG!BANG!BANG!BANG!BANG!clickclick...*
Nothing...

Thus Tomoya entered the building unharmed, sealing the fate of all those inside it.
"....I...Missed...." He said to himself in a defeated tone before falling on his knees.
"David, do you copy? David are you there!?"

Jenny

Jenny stood by as Slindis and Teri tended to that strange man from earlier.
She was yet to understand who he actually was, but from the emotions of Slin and Teri, she could tell he was important, somehow.
It was then she noticed she could hear Lupito's thoughts.
Wait...Did I just hear that? No offence, but I didn't think Dogs could think like humans...
It was then she realised what she did: Insult a 340KG Wolf.
She instinctively readied another barrier.


Dark Tomoya.
Location: Capitol Building | National Mall | DC, American.
Time: 8 Am.
Weather: Black Clouds.

The scene everyone witnessed was much like the Rocky movie. Except people were running away from Tomoya and the only people running after him were cultists which he forgot they were there when he swung his sword for practice. The stairs were pretty much covered in red after that point and the best part for Tomoya is that he didn't mind them dying since they were a sacrificial/suicidal cult.

Noticing the shots coming from David as he went up the stairs, he decided to help him a little bit with his aiming. When Tomoya was climbing the stairs he managed to throw a single person in the air to block one from from David. Before Tomoya entered the building to kill everyone he first yelled out to David.

"Hey David... you might want to check your aim before killing civilians becomes a hobby... oops... I forgot that you did enough of that in Russia, AHAHAHA!"

Tomoya laughed as he entered the building and started to immediately kill all the guards in the area with his new darkness sword.

Jenny | Lucifer | Slindis | Teri

"I can aid him, but I'm going to need some help from you, Teri. Some of these wounds are quite severe."

Garm was a little less willing to be away from it's 'pup', as it followed Teri till she pointed towards Lupito and said, "Wait there, I can't see anything. And, if you don't mind terribly, could Jenny sit on you? She looks wiped out."

As she began her healing of the Morning Star, the Cleric couldn't help but feel her gut clench. Here she was, healing the Adversary of her God; and yet... No, she couldn't be thinking of that at that moment. Even if she was ambivalent about her feelings towards this being, Lucifer still had a role in the Cosmos to play. He said so himself, there can't be God without a Devil to oppose him. Besides, the notion of a new and crueler Satan did not sound the least bit appealing. At least with the man (what is too simplified to call him just 'man'?) before her, she knew kindness was possible from this beast. If what Devon said was true, he even sent his own Daughter out of Hell...

Thinking of all of this, Teri was still able to start the repairs on the stomach, making sure that the acids wouldn't be leaking on everything upon the closing of the abdominal wound. That would be worse than any hell...

As Shadow looked for any members of the rising dawn he became increasingly lost. He somehow stumbled upon a battle between cops and cultists outside the capital. Although it was obvious which side was winning Shadow thought for a second on how he would approach this.

Should he try to blend in? Or should he just cut and shoot his way through? That's when he heard something inside his head say 'kill them.'

His body twitched a second as pulled out his M4 in one hand and held Taytum in the other. He walked slowly past an officer fleeing for his life.

'Kill'

Shadow quickly shot the officer in he head before charging into the battle area. Killing anything that moved.

Airship Rising Dawn - The Bridge
A.I. Vermilion | Jake

Both Jake and A.I. Vermilion held their breaths as they waited for a response from Andrews Airforce Base's 113th Airwing (at least V would have if she needed to breathe). Finally there was a response.

"Captain, the base commander reports that he is under orders to destroy the Airship from General Pint and is intends to follow through with his orders unless ge gets counter-order from higher up the chain of command." A.I. Vermilion reported as she disappeared for a moment, even her presence on the view screens had disappeared.

Meanwhile, the first of the F-16Ds began their short taxi towards the runway... taking off only minutes later.

"ALERT! ALERT! INCOMING ATTACK FORCE!" The Airship's default alarm sounded off, confirming that Jake's companion on the Airship was no longer aboard the ship's network.

The Airship's defenses started coming online as the fighter craft entered within 3 miles of the Airship.

2.5 Miles

2.25 Miles

The barrels of the Plasma Cannons started glowing as charging chambers were filled with the charged gasses.

"Placing weapons back into standby mode." Vermilion reported as her presence was once again in the bridge and as Jake looked back towards the Ship's sensor display, he saw that the F-16Ds were now assuming an escort position around he Airship.

"The Base Commander expresses his deepest apologies over this near incident and requests that you not mention this event the next time you and the President go out for a round of golf"


D.C. Battle Grounds - Beachhead
Aftan | Akane | Devon | Ella | Gabrielle

Before another idea could be proposed, a wave of panicked screamed impacted against the small group's collective eardrums. This was quickly followed by the first of a mass of civilians running away from the direction of the Capital Building.

"Gabs! What's going on?" Aftan yelled into the radio, as she struggled to make herself heard over the panic of the mob.

"Tomoya's in the Capital Building. Dacvid tried to shoot him but missed... the crowd's retreating from the Capital Building and there are already a bunch of civies down!" Gabrielle reported as the sounda round being chambered in of MSG90 was heard.

The supressor that was mounted on the barrel worked like a charm as the Black Knight openned up on the cultists, trying to clear them from the front of the Capital Building.

"That answers that question. We should go in NOW." Aftan said as she sheathed her blades in favor of her Shrieker Pistols.

Devon's companion seemed much more alert now, the screams of the sheep having caused her body to wake up as adrenaline was introduced into her system.

"Devon... I need to tell you something important... in case... in case one of hs doesn't make it back. It's daddy... I think he's got some sort of scam going and it involves you friend Teri. I dunno what it is but you know as well as I do that if the Prince of Lies is involved... it's trouble. He might be my daddy ... but if he's plotting something that puts you in danger... I have to make sure someone stops him." The Succubus said as she opened her weapon wheel and pulled out a second .45 1911 that matched the one holstered on her hip.


Angelus | Cadolbolg | Caim | Ton Ton

Cadolbolg moved quickly as soon as he heard the firt of the gun shots that David had unleashed on the facade of the Capital Building. Using his powerful hind legs, the Mini-Bruiser-Cuties took flight, the sun's reflection off the mini-dragon's polished brass scales making him look like a second sun in the skies.

"Are you ready Ton Ton? We should clear a path for the rest of the group. That means taking out as many of those robed humans as possible!" The former construct "said" as he banked towards the front of the historic building and unleashed a line of fire on a few cultists.


Jenny | Lucifer | Slindis | Teri

What happens when humans die is a very personal experience and one that some choose to share while others try to forget that it ever happened. For Angels and Daemons the experience is akin to a sacred ritual as they are mucj longer lived thab Humans and have much to answer for before they go to where ever it is they go when they die.

I'll not share the details of Lucifer's experience but what I can tell you is that it filled him with a dread and a fear that would haunt him for a time.

Of course... he did not die, because if he did I wouldn't have been privvy to his pre-death visions. Instead of dying, the Fallen One groaned.

"Uuuuugh" The Morning Star ugh'd as he slowly opened his piercing blue eyes and saw Teri kneeling over him, praying.

"Did... did I miss something? Weren't you ... running away from me?" The Devil quipped as his lips cracked into a smile before he grimaced in pain.

Not to worry Teri... It's not your fault that his body is naturally allergic to prayers. But for what it's worth, you did heal him.

"Thanks" he said as he tried to reach up and touch the Cleric's face... only to realize that Teri and Him weren't alone.

"Kiddo... Did you know there's a couple of wolces behind you?. The Beast of the 9 Rings asked, unsure of where the wolves came from and why they weren't attacking at the moment.

But these things could wait. He was just happy to be alive and in the Cleric's presence.


Kurumu | Melethia | Puce

Puce was in the middle of trying to run through the crowd after it started going all freak out crazy in response to the turmoil at the Capital Building.

Overhead Kurumu was carrying Melethia, the two determined to break through to the line of cultists.

"Alright Squirt are you ready?" Kurumu asked as he handed the elf some of her special explosive vials.

"Just be careful that you don't hurt and innocents."

Jenny, Lupito

Jenny readied another barrier when she saw that the wolf went up and panted happily. Hey, I can think just fine. It was still rude to call me that, although that's like calling you a green....floating...thingy, I dunno. I'll be fine if you don't refer to me by that, but if you want to keep going there, we'll have some problems The large wolf moved in between Jenny and Teri, trying to let Slindis' pup do what she was to the male there.

Slindis, Teri

As Teri worked on the gut, Slindis heard Lupito mentally talking to Jenny and shook her head as they fixed the injuries. There was still the issue of her going wild and putting the three in a position where they could have gotten killed, but now wasn't the time for that.

Airship Rising Dawn - The Bridge
A.I. Vermilion | Jake

As they were awaiting the onslaught, a small screen blinked for a moment as Jake and Vermilion received the latest status report for each member of the Rising Dawn... Plus one.


Jenny | Lucifer | Slindis | Teri

Teri had finished casting 'Status' over the Devil himself when he started coming to, and was mentally kicking herself for doing so. With what she was about to ask him, there was no need to do so; but here she was, finished in casting the watching spell over him. However, the information she received was more than enough; and upon tapping the Fallen on the forehead for a moment, he began to feel a sensation of healing wash over him again, this one lasting a tad bit longer than the other healing magics she had been pumping into his system (Fast Healing via Healing Devotion).

The Cleric said nothing as she finished her treatment, and finally allowed Garm to come to her side again. The black wolf was eager to do so, and gently lopped over to his charge, the Gardevoir being allowed to rest her feet whilst riding him. The creature took one sniff of the wounded Archangel, and it's ears fell back, giving a whine of confusion as his charge took one last look over her patient.

Biting her lip, she distracted herself by petting her wolf companion as she spoke, "I told you it was a bad idea to stick around in that form... No doubt it's what got you into trouble, right?"

She didn't want to look in those eyes again, or to see those golden locks; those perfect wings. Her already confused heart couldn't take it. Burying her face in the wolf's fur to hide her expression, the girl's request was made, "You're fixed up now.. Right? Now can you go? There's no need for you to be here..."


Angelus | Cadolbolg | Caim | Ton Ton

"Ready when you are, bud! RAAAARRRGGH"

Ton Ton enforced a tactic that he had begun to perfect after riding around on Cadolbolg for so long; Diveboming with an extended knife. Bringing the keen weapon down, Ton Ton was able to get a man right in the collarbone; and downed him before you could say "Karma".

Caim and Angelus' heads shot up at the realization of what the Cutie Bruisers were up too, and Charged headlong into the fray; sword and flame at the ready.

Nobody messed with their kids and got away with it.

Battlefield Right outside the Capital.

Shadow could see the Capital in sight. He just had to stop the remainder of the cultists out of his way and he would be there. He could see Cadolbolg burning some of the cultists and though about talking to him, but decided that everyone would probably be heading to the capital too soon enough. He kept smashing the heads in of anyone nearby and was quickly making his way to the Capital.

Rugal

Despite his best efforts, The lone King was unable to find a path though the mobs that didn't involve mass murder, while he could do that, he was certain it'd only make things harder later.
Though this did give him time to think about Teri's letter.
Still a bitch move blaming me for when that Impostor attacked. Hell, her impostor did a better job then mine did! And on that note, why am I so bothered about this!? Christ dammit, have to double back...Then again....she was right about me breaking my word...
Thus Rugal went back in a attempt to re-group, they were most likely struggling without him anyway.

David West

As the rest of the crew began to clean up his mess, David was numb as he sat against the wall, Tomoya's taunting clearly taking its toll.
Between today, what little he did back during the monster attacks, His failure to stop Red Mage, how he was sedated during most of his "Rescue" of Elena, leaving a bunch of strangers he never met to do the work for him.
...You know what?...That's it, I'm done....I'm just going to leave. Yeah...Just grab my shit, get a transport, go back to my bungalow in Castlerea and wait for this to all blow over....If I can't save a bunch of old men in a building from him, how do I save humanity?...Just a guy in a fight of gods. Hell, Gabs could take over, she's a good shot...And I think half vampire or some shit, I dunno even know anymore...
Most of his time here, he was our gunned, this just proved it, His keen aim was the only reason he was even in this group, which is pretty redundant at this point in time.
Thus he took off his headset and began to collect his things, pausing for a second as he`glanced at the burning city.
"....Eh, who'd even notice me gone?..." He concluded as left his post.

Jenny

Jenny was relieved by Lupito's thoughts.
Sorry again, just this is unusual to find such sentient creatures outside of Kanto...
She was tempted to ask who that man really was, he was some kind of angel.
In the end though, it was clear it was none of her business and stayed out of it.

Aftan | Akane | Devon | Ella | Gabrielle

He nodded. "Ella, I understand you, but we could be missing something here as well on that. We've got to keep an open mind on this, you know? I'll keep the warning in mind, though." Deon began making his way with the rest of the group to the Capital Building, trying to get an eye for how many were there.


Kurumu | Melethia | Puce

She laughed. "Who do ya take me for? Some idiot that can't even throw somethin' right?" As they closed on the group, Melethia threw the first of the vials at the crowd of Cultists.

David

Discarding his stolen SWAT Sniper into a burning shop front, David kept marching past dozens of lifeless bodies from where Rioters met Police.
"All I had to fucking do was hit him, Not call the General a short ass bald bastard, Actually fucking end a man who'd have us all killed the second it suits him, not kill an entire village because SOME FUCKING IGNORANT CHILD OUT OF MY SIGHT!" He ranted as he walked past.
Then it hit him.
".....How long were you standing there?..." He asked Tajuh, Riki and Kud when it dawned on him that he just passed a corner they were sneaking past.
"...You know what, I don't even care anymore. Have fun kids!" He snidely said as he kept walking from the battle.

David

Tajuh grabbed the man by the shoulder as Riki and Kud got to the side. "You're planning on running from here? You're planning on abandoning everyone here out of some sense of pity? You're taking the easy way out, and if you leave, you will always regret yourself for it. Sure, there's the chance that we could succeed without you, but then you'll always be telling yourself that you could have done more."

Looking him dead in the eyes, he continued. "You fucked up. So what? Nobody on this ship is perfect. You got up after each mistake, though. Now if you want to catch that Archangel off guard, follow me. We're slipping in right under the fucker's nose and you're the man for the job."

David

David shook off Tajuh's hand off his shoulder and said "No, You don't need me. You just need my gun, nothing else."
To show he wasn't messing around, he actually gave Tajuh his trademark M500.
"There. That is my contribution to your great quest. I am sick and tired of having to spend every second of my existence watching some bastard I can't do shit about kill billions of people. I mean, Come on, you could easily kill me dead the second you feel like it, Slindis, Rugal, Teri, Aftan, Even Jake! This is a massive Chess game between an never ending supply of genocidal manics! And I've had enough of it. Good day!"

Thus the marksman kept his course, hoping to get as many miles from these Heroes as possible.

David, Tajuh

Tajuh followed the man and grabbed him by his shoulder again. "No, I need you. I need your mind, I need your talents, and I need the drive of a man that knows how to pick himself up after failing time and time again. You've got it in you. Finish up this one or you will regret turning away. I know. I've done it, and not being there when I felt completely useless is something I keep in mind all the time." He put the M500 back in David's hands, and he gave David a piercing gaze.

"That feeling of being useless? Do something to change it. If not for yourself, for Elena. Would you turn your back on her safety?"

David, Tajuh

"....Uurgggg...That's the thing I hate about this this kind of work: The fucking Motivational Speeches..." David sighed as he turned around back into the burning city.
His compete and utter contempt of his current situation and helplessness was still there, but Tajuh had his marksman for now.
"Right...Just even if we go get into the capital, what's to stop Tomoya from just bitch slapping us into being like that guy?" He said, pointing to a rather crispy police officer's body in the street.
"How do we avoid that?"

David, Tajuh

He looked at the man and shook his hand. "I know that you're tired of the fighting here, but I do thank you for heading on board for this last large situation. Now for Tomoya, we don't give him the chance or keep the man's focus somewhere else. He's powerful, yes, but he's also arrogant. Piss him off and we can control the match, force him to leave an opening."

David, Tajuh

"Yeah, I was planning to do that when I had the shot, fucking missed by a mile...at least 30 or so times....I having a bad day..." David confessed as they marched onwards towards Shadow's rampage. (Just getting Shadow an opening)
"Just even if we go get the opening, how the hell do we fight him? You saw Preacher back at the temple, barely did shit to him and he was some real God-Like Motherfucker...."

Shadow

Shadow was still killing cultists.....

Although he had run out of ammo so he had resorted to just slicing, and bashing there heads in.
He was having a great time and thats when he spotted David and Tajuh (Thats how you spell it right?) headings towards his direction.

"Hello David. Who is your friend there? I do not believe I have met them" he asked as he curb stomped a cultists head.

David, Tajuh, Shadow

Before Tajuh could answer, David stopped and stared at a character in the distance.
"....No....Fucking....Way...." He flat out said as he neared the sheath-suit wearing Russian.
"Nearly 50 million killed worldwide and *You* after still fucking alive!?" He greeted, his mood lifting somewhat.
"Tajuh, Shadow, Shadow, Tajuh. This guy helped us out when massive freaking monsters attacked worldwide, bit of a asshole, but aren't we all?" He chuckled, his humor acting a means of escapism for him.
"So....Wanna go shoot up some bad guys? We got ammo..."

David, Tajuh, Shadow

Shadow just laughed at the last thing he said. "First I am not a bit of a asshole... I AM A HUUGGEEE ASSHOLE!" he shouted as he waved his arms in the air for emphasis. "But yes lets go kill something, and I would love ammo..." Shadow as he turned to Tajuh, "so since David trusts I will trust you... also what is going on around here? I love killing all these people for no real reason, but whats happening?"

D.C. Battle Grounds - Beachhead

As Shadow approached, Tajuh shook the man's hand. "Tajuh's the name, and Tomoya's the target.He's directly responsible for the deaths of at least 12 million, and he's aiming to take out the leadership. Can I count on you to keep them off this group here?"

David, Tajuh, Shadow, Riki, Kud

David looked at Shadow in disbelief at the fact he had no idea what was going on.
"....You really missed the massive Evil Arch Angel running around killing everything that moves? Christ above, you need to stop drinking, I least *I* can handle it." He stated as the group set out.
"So basically, we are going to try and kill him and if at all possible, avoid dying in the process, but I'm not too optimistic on that part."

David then turned to check on the schoolkids.
"Hey! Keep up, I don't want none of that shit back at in the Jungle, you got that!?"

David, Tajuh, Shadow, Riki, Kud

"Well Tajuh... you just tell me what needs killing." Shadow replied as he walked with the group.

He then turned towards David and said "all I saw was a sea of cultists and then a lot of dead bodies shortly after..."

"And on a different note.... fuck being optimistic I dont need to be optimistic to kill things! Weve survived so much shit! Well get through this...."

He then turned to the school kids "umm David why are there kids here? Just curious..."

David

"We picked up something called the Stone of Light back in South America. Due to some picky terms and conditions, only they can use it. lucky bastards..." David explained as their group kept walking towards the capital.

Jenny

Jenny relaxed as Lucifer seemed to be okay, though Teri was still a mess of emotions so she did what she could to fix that.
"Well then....Mr. Angel, Best get you on your way then if you are able!" She perked up while paying attention to whatever Teri's reaction was.
Awwww...she's so flustered right now... She thought to herself and herself alone.
"What the hell?...." Asked a voice...

Rugal

"....Is doing on here?" Rugal asked as he came across the group, their new pets and the angel form of Lucifer.
"...Is that an Arch Angel?!" He said as he rushed over to take a look at Lucifer.
"How the hell did you find one!? The only one I know of is Goe-Tomoya! Tomoya, excuse me...But really how!?"

Jenny | Lucifer | Rugal | Slindis | Teri

Teri froze at the sound of Rugal's voice, very much not in the mood or state of mind to deal with him right now; especially with her grudge still there. However, she still tried to revert her 'voice' to the monotone reserved especially for the Cartel Lord. Trying to wipe the remnants of her wet cheeks on Garm's fur, Teri forced herself to turn, her face still red, and chocked out of the Tablet, "He was wounded by Angels here, Commander. This Angel.. He's... he's been a benefactor of sorts for me for a little while. Nothing serious, but he does like to give me a pep talk every once in a while. Please leave him alone."

However, Rugal could already tell from her expression that there was something going on under the surface. No, it wasn't the anger he had received a letter about. Rather, it was something similar to a stretched rubber band, ready to snap the moment too much pressure was applied. Funny, he hadn't received any reports about Slindis' team. What could have caused the Cleric to look as wild as she did before him?

Jenny | Lucifer | Rugal | Slindis | Teri

Rugal was completely shocked by this.
"You've been in contact with this Angel!? God Dammit Teri! What if he was a spy?! How come you never brought this to our attention!?" He asked as he examined the wounded Fallen One.
"...You could have done us a lot of harm if he was actually working with Tomoya..."
"He isn't, I checked his mind. Just he ended up noticing this Cleric on our side and what with Dark Tomoya's attacks..." Jenny butted in, Bluffing like mad to avoid a major row.
"....I'm onto you Angel..." He warned before turning to Lupito and Garm.
"And these two? I didn't think Wolfs got that big..."

Jenny | Lucifer | Rugal | Slindis | Teri

Teri stooped down to check again on Lucifer's wounds, making sure nothing was out of place in a desperate attempt to keep her face from being seen. Her composure was breaking piece by piece under all this pressure, and it didn't help that in order to avoid Rugal's gaze, she was now looking at Lucifer again. Out of the frying pan and into the fire, at least for her. As she checked up on the Fallen one again, Dimitri's voice chimed in,

"Sir, User: Slindis has encountered this Angel as well, and can personally vouch for him, if you so chose to ask her. As for the wolves, my scans have proved that the two are direwolves, save that the black one, Garm, is still growing. He's kind of a puppy, if you will. The larger grey one, Lupito, if my understanding is correct, belongs to User: Slindis. Garm has personally taken upon himself to watch Her Ladyship. I believe it is pack instinct, as smaller wolves will watch the young while the larger ones hunt."

Seeing the confrontational nature of the man that had arrived, Lupito started to snarl and bare his teeth at Rugal to make it quite clear that it was not fond at all of the man. It would be intimidating by itself, but the Dire Wolf's fur was dotted with the blood of the cultists that Rugal had walked over to get there.

Slindis turned to Rugal and motioned to the wolf that went up to her shoulder. "Rugal, this is Lupito, an old pup of mine. He's not that small any more, though..." She gave a casual laugh and stroked the wolf's fur as it continued to give Rugal the stinkeye.

Rugal, like Jenny before him, was competely blown away at this reveal.
"Slin, you knew about this?..." He asked, feeling somewhat betrayed, but only a little.
He was about to push further until Lupito was kind enough to silence him as the Drow introduced the two of them.
"Whoa...Easy boy....You have a leash for him? Just I was always a cat person..." He asked, somewhat un-nerved by Lupito's size, It was like a bears but in wolf form, that's what worried him.
"Well....I guess I'll take your word for it, just I need to know these things people!...When you are ready, we'll set out. We have a lot of work to do...Also, Ms. Gravel, A word when you get the time..." He said.

Jenny meanwhile was working with Slin to calm down the large creature.
simmer, Simmer, why are you so worked up? She asked mentally as Rugal increased his distance from Lupito.

Slindis nodded. "I did work with him for a short amount of time, but I'm as surprised as you are to see him here. I thought he had more to do with what's going on here. Still, we can count on him for now." The thing that Slindis had noticed was how tenderly she'd tended to Lucifer. That wasn't the way one usually tended to wounds, and it was clear that Teri was falling for Lucifer. I'll have to talk to her about that later.

Lupito kept a sharp eye in the man as it talked mentally to Jenny. I don't like him. He's too friendly with them for what he is, and I won't have him attacking Slindis or her pups.

"Also, Ms. Gravel, A word when you get the time..." He said.

Teri took another deep breath, and sipped some water, the gesture calming her down some more as she patted Garm's face. Upon finishing her drink, she said, "I don't know if he can be moved, so now would be a good time. Garm, watch him for me, please?"

Before going, she gave Lucifer one last look, and then walked away. The black wolf gave a soft whine but complied, sitting down next to the Angel and watching his Pup follow after Rugal.

Jenny
Jenny was intrigued by Lupito's choice of words, Blade and Hiryu covered the main Strider Business and thus would know about Rugal's connections, but she never was keen on spying on others.
"for what he is"? What is that supposed to mean might I ask? She asked as Rugal brought the Cleric aside and around the corner.

Rugal
Once they were out of ear shot and view, Rugal looked around to make sure.
"Right...First off, I don't do this. Period. In my business, weakness gets you killed and if Viscus's actions were any consideration, you can understand where I am coming from."
He then took a deep breath and said
"I, Rugal Bernstein, apologize for breaking my word, attempting to kill you twice, I'm still not counting that one with the impostor, For attempting to kill David West and for personally being generally unpleasant.

Furthermore, I vow to never attempt to kill you despite any and all infractions against me and to generally attempt to co-operate more with the rest of the group. I do swear that this is all honest and not some attempt to deceive you, even ask your psychic friend there."

He then exhaled and added "Is this to your satisfaction?..."
Now that the main business was out of the way, Rugal could better notice how odd Teri was at this moment.
