| Storm | Teri | Tajuh | Shadow

Storm rose from his bed as Teri greeted him. "Nice to meet you, the name is Storm. I am Commander... well former commander of the Blackhawke." Storm waited for a second as he heard something come from his helmet which was right beside him. "Given the information Alpha here gave me... it sounded like I was corrupted for a while which is the reason I am down here. I'm here to see if I am fully purged of that black liquid and to patch myself up.

Storm said as he pointed to the armor remover which had his armor beside it in storage.
Then Tajuh came in and asked how Storm was doing.
"[color=green]Uh... yeah... I also know I was a huge asshole while corrupted and tried to kill you all to protect a friend whom is fully corrupted.
" Storm shallowly laughed to himself.

Then Shadow came in and Charlie started to talk.

Airship Rising Dawn - Medbay/Morgue:
Charlie | Shadow | Storm | Tajuh | Teri

Another stranger had entered the Medical Ward of the Airship, followed by a familiar face. Shadow. Ha Long's one time student in the art of the swords had entered the area and appeared to be in search of a needle. A smile briefly crossed the man's face and he reached under his shirt and pulled out what looked like a fragment of bone of some sort... no... it wasn't a fragment of bone. It appeared to be a hypodermic needle that had been crafted out of bone.

"Shadow." Charlie said as he placed the needle on a steel plate for the man to recover when he was ready.

Looking at the new strange (Tajuh), the Ancient Dragon judged him to be of some importance upon the ship as he carried that air about him and the ship's medic deferred to his command.

"Humans and their hierarchical rankings. PAH!" Charlie thought to himself as he quickly went back into his old ways of thinking... back when he had not yet met a human that lived up to his expectations.

"A Spartan you say?" He interrupted, looking at Storm.

"Surely this ... being... is not from so fine a culture of warriors. The Spartans of old would not be caught dead in so flashy an armor. They prided themselves in their mobility and ability to fight as a unit." From the smell of Storm, there was something off about this... human, for it was a human he smelled with traces of something... chemical.

Shadow

Shadow took the needle and thanked Charlie. "It's good to see you again..." He said shortly after.

He then found a stool and sat down on it. It the. Dawned upon him that he was terrible with a needle. "Errr is anyone good with needles?" he asked hoping to get a yes reply.

Charlie | Shadow | Storm | Tajuh | Teri

Storm laughed loudly through out the Medical Bay and from what he could see... a morgue as well. Storm looked at the person who just addressed him in a old way. "Aha, I'm not that old... I come from the year of 2553 in my world. I am a superhuman, we are just called Spartans because we never die and fight well in a unit. Excluding me of course... I'm more of a lone wolf... an agent of good, or something like that." Storm sighed.

Storm looked over to the armor machine which held his set of green armor.
"That armor saves us from things you can't imagine. Laser rifles, grenades and even falling from space. We wear the armor because it is one of the best reasons why we are hard to kill but... some times you don't get so lucky." Storm frowned whilst remembering one time where he was escorting civilians onto a ship. The ships exploded and Storm was the only one to survive.

The blood of those people are printed on his suit.
Feeling the corruption on him still, Storm felt like having a shower.
Looking to Teri the spartan smiled. "So doc, am I okay or do I need to do further examinations" The spartan said with a patent look.

A weird language came from the helmet next to Storm.
"Oh... ignore Alpha... he's my AI. Just confirmed that I have 99.9 percent of that corruption out." He smiled.

Charlie | Shadow | Storm | Tajuh | Teri

Teri flailed a little when all the men converged on her with all the differing amounts of information/requests and she threw her hands up,

"One thing at a time!"

That's when she began pointing at each man, answering their questions each, "No, Commander Tajuh, I have not inspected the Spartan yet, as I just got here. Speaking of, I think you need a checkup anyways Storm. Go sit on a bed and I'll get to you in a second. Mr. Needle, as I don't know your name, I am proficient at the use of needles to administer medicines, as per part of my training...."

When she turned to Charlie, she paused for a moment, and then frowned, "... Two things. One, that needle had blood on it and needs to be cleaned, and two, you've been bad and have been hiding a wound; which now makes you top priority. If you would be so kind, please sit over there, so I can begin your treatment... Mr. Tajuh, would you be so kind as to fetch me the antiseptic from that cabinet there?"

The Cleric's face, as bright as it had been moments ago, had now taken a turn for the stern. It was interesting to see such a transition from one so young, especially with the somewhat carefree attitude displayed moments ago.

The dragon laughed at Kurumu's insistence at being a gossip partner, and held up a hand in mock defense, "Very well, all advice towards human emotions of affection shall be directed your way, this I promise!"

The small wooden succubus grinned at being appointed Angie's love doctor and felt quite content, all things considered. Her mirth causing her to grin ear to ear and even seemed to brighten Puce's mood for a moment as the Construct Creator joined in on the topic.

"I'm sure Caim will appreciate any and all advice that you can give Angelus, Kuru." He said with a chuckle as he could only imagine the bizarre types of advice that the Succubus was going to dole out to the dragon. He didn't know who to worry about more... Angie or Caim.

"It feels good to laugh. Remember. Next time don't be so complacent." Puce thought to himself as he gave himself a mental slap in the face.

"Now, Cadolbolg, Ton Ton. We just have to find a dragon and a tonberry for you two, respectively, and everything will be all set!" The Succubus teased her construct brother.

"I have no problems attracting females." The Mini-Dragon said in mock offense, his tail swishing through the air slowly to show that he was unbothered by the comment. Life, it seemed was returning to normal for the Rising Dawn, despite the set backs they had incurred that day.


Airship Rising Dawn - Medbay/Morgue:
Charlie | Shadow | Storm | Tajuh | Teri

The Dragon frowned but followed the human girl's orders and sat down on the an empty examination table, pulling off the uniformed jacket that kept his wound hidden from the world.

The wound itself looked much much worse that it felt to the old one as Teri discovered that whatever weapon Elena had used on the dragon had cut all the way down to the bone. Curiously, there seemed to be very little blood around the opening in the Dragon's chest that had exposed his rib cage.

"It is nothing that I cannot heal without the proper amount of rest." He said as he attempted to will the wound to close. Try as he might, however, he could not get the wound to close. Some property of the bladed boomrang that Elena used as a weapon kept the gash from healing properly, the Dragon realized as he finally just surrendered to the Medical Officer's tender mercies.

"How long have you been a medical officer, girl? I find it difficult to believe that one so young as you would have the capacity to have learned the healing arts."

Listening in on the conversation, and making mental notes, Charlie especially paying attention to the so-called Spartan's data on his armor and Tomoya's assets.

Time: Evening.

Charlie | Shadow | Storm | Tajuh | Teri

Tajuh shook his head at being called commander as he grabbed the antiseptic. "Teri, drop the commander. I'm not fond of the title, nor do I intend on keeping it. However, the status update is much welcomed. Storm, if you want to move around the ship for now with some freedom, it would benefit you greatly to take the examination."

He took a seat by the examining area, ensuring he gave the cleric ample room to work. "Besides, there's something I need to discuss with you about the oddities that were noticed in Elena. I think I know what it is, but we'll need to take a look at the body to make sure."

Airship Rising Dawn - Hanger
Angelus | Cadolbolg | Caim | Kurumu | Puce | Ton Ton | Slindis

Slindis entered the hangar from her pod after having fixed up her clothing in the pod and went up to the group with the rather large wolf at her side. She'd likely used her spells to heal up the two of them from the looks of it, and the large wolf sniffed at the wooden Kurumu.

"I hate to interrupt, but do any of you happen to know where the weapons are held here? I'm going to need to train Teri here soon, and she needs to see how the quarterstaff's properly used first before she ends up hurting herself."

Airship Rising Dawn - Canteen:
Aftan | Akane | Devon | Ella | Fire Imps (x6) | Gabrielle | Lucifer

Devon laughed warmly at the offer. "That sounds fantastic, actually. I'll have my steak medium rare." As the food got prepared, he tried his best to show that he was calm when he was actually fairly nervous. Not from the fact that the Canteen had a hole torn through it, but the fact that this was the first time he'd ever eaten dinner with the family of someone else that he was in a relationship in. He'd only had one or two relationships, but they'd all fizzled out due to the two not meshing up.

It probably didn't help that Ella's father was the Prince of Lies, had massive amounts of power, and had a contract for Devon's soul already. Plus, he didn't know if said contract could be rewritten at a whim.

Charlie | Shadow | Storm | Tajuh | Teri

Storm followed the conversation and heard Dr. Teri order him and Tajuh give him advice... or a threat. "Doctor's orders eh... don't worry Doc, I'm ready. I might just be a little different since I'm a spartan... well I guess I might be easier judging by everyone on this ship. Storm chuckled as he remembered that this ship had a multiple weird creatures on board.

Storm still laid on the bed and took the patient shirt off and waited for Teri to examine him. He felts that someone was watching him though.
He guessed it was one of the many people on this ship.

Caim laughed, and with a jovial tone said, "Kids, pray for your father, your mother now has a gossip partner. I don't know how long I'll last..."

Ton Ton looked at Caim with genuine distress, "Oh no! That sounds terrible! Are you going to be okay, Mr. Caim?!"

The warrior did his best to look grim and nodded, "For now, I should be alright. However, I do fear for later on... Prolonged gossip has it's fatal side effects, especially to men."

When Slindis voiced her question, Caim motioned in a direction, "There should be an armory right by the training rooms. Whether you find anything familiar to your homeland is there is up in the air."


Airship Rising Dawn - Medbay/Morgue:
Charlie | Shadow | Storm | Tajuh | Teri

Garm lifted his head at the smell of steak, and licked it's chops. No doubt, it's Pup would want some sustenance as well. Earlier she did point in the direction of the smell, so she must have known about something that way.. Getting up, it began to lope away towards the Canteen; silently hoping it could get appropriate food for the both of them.

As for the Cleric in question, after she treated the wound with the antiseptic, she began some light suturing of the wound, using a cure spell to cover the bones before beginning the rest of the treatment.

With a small smile, she answered, "Loud and clear, Mr. Tajuh... As for your question, sir; you really don't want me to answer that...."

Even if she said nothing about her time as a healer, her actions certainly showed a proficiency for the art; especially after that spell she had used to seal half the wound away, and the rest of it was close to being completely sutured. This strange girl, whoever she was, was certainly good at what she did. However, that only brought into question of who she was exactly. From what the dragon could glean, she smelt human; even if her aura was a little off....

The dinner that the Lord of Hell had prepared by the souls of the damned was actually quite nice despite the fact that the spirits seemed to grumble as they went about their work. For what it was worth, Ella seemed to enjoy it as well as she no longer seemed to be suffering from the need to feed from the human souls that she had displayed when they had first come up to the realm of the living.

Lucifer was the first to break the silence as they ate.

"So... has it been worth it? Trading in 50 years in the service of Hell for the powers and skills that you have gained?" The Fallen one asked as he looked at the man that was seated next to his daughter.

"Hopefully he'll be able to guide her through her feelings when she finds out what she truly is." Lucifer thought to himself as he spotted a familiar wolf padding through the doors of the Canteen.

"Isn't that HER wolf?" Ella asked, refusing to use Teri's name in conversation with her Daddy.

"Yes. I'm sure he's just here for some food, not to cause you any harm, dear daughter of mine." He said as he ordered a well marbled raw steak to be plated and set in front of the wolf.

"There you go, Garm. Hopefully you can see that I mean your mistress no harm." He thought to himself.


Airship Rising Dawn - Hanger
Angelus | Cadolbolg | Caim | Kurumu | Puce | Ton Ton

Puce stopped his laughter for a moment to match Caim's grim tone though his smile was very badly hidden through the grimness of his face.

"They say that when women plot, the world shudders as a whole because anything can happen as a result. The would could end." Puce started to say as he noted Slindis' approach.

"A staff? You could probably find them in the training room. But... well... just in case, let me make one quickl yfor you." Puce said as he drew power from the Fusion reactors that powered the ship and channeled it into a pile of scrap metal. Moments later, Puce was holding a staff, the perfect height and weight for Slindis.


Airship Rising Dawn - Medbay/Morgue:
Charlie | Shadow | Storm | Tajuh | Teri

Charlie did in fact notice the aura and he did hear the fact that the girl was a Cleric. However that still did't keep from from criticizing her work all the same.

"Human, that is NOT how you clean a wound. You need to move the bacteria away from the wound not smudge it in a circle. Here let me do it."

"Those sutures are too large and far apart. Here. Let me do it."

And so on and so forth. However he found himself decidedly lacking when the healing spells came. It took a very special person to be able to cast holy magic such as what Teri was throwing about and while she did survive his initial verbal criticism, she did not have to hear it for the rest of his time in the Medical bay.

Oh it wasn't because he was respecting her... it was due to Tajuh's comment about Elena's body.

"What do you mean that you need to examine her body. She smelled off but... I assumed it was from being so close to the corruptive influence of that Angel. But... I can that that is not what you mean."

Storm was fooling around with his AI in the background as everyone talked, then Charlie bought up Tomoya. "Hey... that's a bit mean. The guy is my closest friend in this weird and wonderful world." Storm said outloud to everyone but Alpha said something to him in his AI language. "... what was that... Demon Prince! Well shit." He said to himself.

Shrugging to himself he looked back to his helmet.
"Okay alpha... resumed where we left." Storm instructed and soon a little holographic screen popped up in front of him playing an episode of 'Halo: Legends'.

"That thirteen, thirty seven guy is pretty crazy... yet some what useless. Yet I remember blowing up that alien planet like it was yesterday." Storm commented and Alpha just let out one 'bloop' sound.
"The blood gulch guys... give me a break about them. One day I crash in their little canyon and steal a car... and they all come after me. Damn those dirty blues and those reds can suck it!" He said to Alpha as he remembered his past adventures.

He looked towards Doctor Teri, "Hey Doc... I don't want to hurry you or anything. But I'm sure I smell bad since I was stuck in that suit and corrupt state for ages... " He said out to Teri and Alpha responded. "I didn't eat or drink either!? What the hell!" Storm yelled out in the med-bay.

"... Yeah... no wonder why I'm hungry."

Devon paused in his eating of the steak to respond to Lucifer. "It's gotten me where I am so far, and I plan on improving on what I learned there. It's a lot better than just sitting by the side and doing nothing, and we both know that's what would have ended up happening."

He takes a drink of water as he puts in a bit more. "Besides, if I hadn't taken your offer, chances are that Ella would still be in Hell." He looked over at the succubus, still finding how his life had turned out so far to be fairly interesting.

Slindis tested the staff. It would be workable for the training, but it would have to get improved if she wanted to use it in any actual fights. "Thank you. Not, if you'll excuse me, I need to think out my student's next wave of the training." Out of all those in the room, only Angelus knew what Slindis' training meant. And only she knew that Teri wasn't going to be getting any real rest any time soon.


Airship Rising Dawn - Medbay/Morgue:
Charlie | Shadow | Storm | Tajuh | Teri

Tajuh nodded. "You see, while we were in South America, we were engaged by multiple shades of each other. Judging from how Elena acted, I think that's what we may be dealing with here as well." Before taking Ha Long out of the room, he waited for Teri to give the okay to look at Elena's corpse.

The wolf licked Lucifer's hand after being served the meat, and happily tucked into it's meal. Upon finishing, the wolf sniffed the air and noticed the meat on the two leg's plates smelt a tad bit differently from his. Perhaps that was their food? Thus, the bard and Devils noticed the wolf pacing around the servers, looking to grab one of the cooked haunches; but for whatever reason it wanted to do that, was a tad confusing. Didn't wolves eat raw meat?


Airship Rising Dawn - Hanger
Angelus | Cadolbolg | Caim | Kurumu | Puce | Ton Ton

Angelus gave a nod to Slindis, and then shook her head, "Best of luck, Paladin. Your student, if anything, is stubborn. That should help in the training, even if she's a bit on the frail side..."

Meanwhile, Ton Ton was still fretting between Puce and Caim, "Wait, are you saying that Ms. Kurumu and Ms. Angelus are going to end the world?! Oh no! We need to get them to stop gossiping!"


Airship Rising Dawn - Medbay/Morgue:
Charlie | Shadow | Storm | Tajuh | Teri

Teri only nodded and gave small "yes sir"s to the Dragon's criticisms, noting they were as scathing as her teacher's. Perhaps she had relied too much upon her magic and was getting over-confident. She would have to study harder. After applying the last bandage, she gave a nod to Tajuh, "He's all yours."

After allowing the Bone Dragon and Tajuh go to investigate Elena's corpse, Teri immediately began prepping for Storm's checkup; beginning with a thorough cleanup of herself after Charlie's suturing. A few moments of prep passed, and the Cleric was quickly on her way to begin.

Procedure followed like any other Checkup, and Teri was surprised to find that the Spartan's skin was pretty tough, for a human looking man. This made collecting blood for testing a little difficult; but nothing too out of the ordinary otherwise. When she finished, she gave the Spartan a pat on the shoulder, "Fit as a fiddle. Now, if you're worried your armor may still be corrupted, I bet a Remove Curse could clear that up right away. However, I won't be able to do that until I get some proper rest... I wouldn't recommend putting it on until you know for a fact that the stuff is purified. Otherwise, you're looking good, Mr. Storm."

As Doctor Teri gave her results to Storm he immediately leaped off the bed and put his shirt back on. "Woo hoo, time for some drinks and grub... and a shower." He said to himself as he grabbed his helmet and put it beside his other armor and the armor machine.

Storm looked back to Teri and had a bright smile on his face.
"Thanks Doc, I'll move all this stuff to the hanger so I can prep easily in the next mission... and don't you guys worry about Alpha here, he'll keep outta your electronics and systems." He smirked once more but turned his attention to the morgue. "Umm... Who... who is that?" He got close to the Doctor and whispered to Teri.

Teri laughed at the Spartan's energy, and waved a hand, "Just 'Teri' will do fine. Over-formality is my shtick; and if what that Dragon says is true, then I've a long way from being a proper doctor..."

When the Spartan leaned in and asked the big question about Elena, The Cleric's usual bright self dimmed, if only a little, and dropped her 'voice' to similar levels, and held up her Tablet to Storm's ear, "I didn't know her too well, but I did know her name was Elena and that she was very close to Mr. West, the Irishman on board... At least, she used to be. However, on account of some experiences we've had, there is some speculation that this body may be an imposter. I can only hope this is true, for both their sakes... Now, you'd do best to stay away from Mr. West until this is all cleared up, alright? Now get going. There's no need to stick around in this depressing place."

With a smile, and the audio back up to suitable levels, she gave a friendly nod as the Spartan left the Med-Bay.

Charlie | Shadow | Storm | Tajuh | Teri

Storm gave a thumbs up, "Don't worry... Teri, I'll keep out of his way, but everyone should keep an eye on him just in case... but anyway, he doesn't know what I look like underneath that armor."Storm said as he left still smiling.

Pushing a trolley with the armor machine on it with his armor, Storm was strolling down the hall until he finally reached the hanger. The spartan gasped as he looked at everything in the hanger. He gasped at the weirdness of Puse's vehicles, he gasped in surprise to find Tomoya's old 'bike' collection next to a stack of boxes.

Storm just wheeled the armor machine to a small garage like area and left the armor aside for Teri to cure, but just before he left Storm grabbed his helmet and retrieved Alpha and planted him in his phone. "Cool, lets eat!" Storm smiled with his tongue out as he left to find the canteen.

AIM

After a thud loud enough to be heard past a near soundproof Blast Door, Cortex got the message to come back in.
"...So I take it the mac-....Huh...was expecting more blood..." He mused before he saw Luna.
"*Glup*....Hey....Errr...how are you?..."
She pointed a paw up towards where Bruiser's body hung from the ceiling, clutching at his nuts and moaning though the steel his head was busted though.
"...Er...Oh jesus...." He said as he went to discreetly turn the Suppression Field back up before he was smeared all over the walls.

Rugal

After cleaning himself up and getting another one of his spare suits, Rugal began to go through his reports from his people at AIM
The once unstoppable AI Viscus was now merely a shadow of his former left and well aware of it, just as he ordered.
He also finally got his monthly Personal Report, Detailing the arrival of Mizune, Inuart and Furiae, Alucard he met earlier.
He also got the report of Mizune's new "Product Line".
....All the money, all the resources, all the Tech...And she makes fucking Sex Dolls? At least put a chaingun in them for the Africans, Sex and a Soldier, it sells itself. He thought as he checked the time.
...I thought I told Slindis to come...oh well, always another day... He sighed before he began to make his way towards the Sauna.

Jenny

Jenny meanwhile watched as the family reunion from hell got underway.
Now normally, she'd be the first to jump in a mediator, but this was clearly way over her head
Thus she just sat and nodded to everything said until she was done eating.

David

David was on his 15th bottle of his stash by now, the empty ones making a messy pile on the floor.
He as starting to forget where he was, thus getting the desired effect.

"It's ok Cortex, you're not going to be harmed. We have no intention of harming the one helping us." Rose said above the rest of the females. The others were talking amongst themselves, sharign tales and such as Lily and Cortex worked on installing the machine to the pit.

"So, how long will it take?" Rose said to the, wanting to know as she walked over.

Cortex

Okay....Most women in one place since high school....no pressure...
"*Ahem* well, given my keen intellect and mastery of Science, It should only take a few more minutes, then we can begin. Though, personally, if you have informed me of your intentions from the beginning, I most certainly would have him up and among the living weeks ago!"
Cortex said, trying to mix bragging with genuine confidence as he put the finishing touches on the machine.
"Just I couldn't help but notice you have some dead among you...and I AM in the business of resurrection..."

"No you wouldn't have had him alive as i just got back now. But if you're referring for me to bring back all of those sisters, the dead shall stay dead and serve a second purpose in their existence. "She said an Dug out a cube fro the bag. IT was completely black on all of its faces, save for one. That face had the outline of a circle that glowed neon blue.

"This will help make it easier for them to fit into the pit for the resurrection." she said and observed the crowd. "Godess, its going to be crowded in there..."

Cortex

"Don't worry about it, we did a test once, threw in a bunch of dead bodies, they didn't fuse together or anything like that..." Cortex completely lied to her face as he left the modded Psycho Drive on stand-by.
"ATTENTION EVERYONE! THE EXPERIMENT WILL BE UNDERWAY IN JUST A FEW MINUTES! TO POSITIONS!" He shouted at his assistants as they aided Daniel's Daughters in setting up the Pit for the revival.
As this went on, Cortex looked around to check if the coast was clear.
"....Always felt like these were missing something..." He shyly said as he used his PDA to access the speakers to provide some background music.
"God I love that Chant...Alright, everything is set, LET THE DEAD RISE AGAIN!" He shouted as hammy as possible as he gave the go ahead.

Airship Rising Dawn - Canteen

Watching the wolf attempt to coral one of the servers was indeed a curious sight, curious indeed. It was almost as if Garm were trying to herd the server outside of the Canteen into the corridors beyond.

Aftan noted this as well and closed her eyes as the area around which she was sitting became bathed in a greenish light that danced the way leaves in a forest dance.

"A pup to feed?" She muttered as she tried to decypher the wolf's thought process. Did Garm mean Mistress Teri? Perhaps but as it stood they had more to lose by Garm hunting down one of the revenant servers, tripping it up and finding out that way than by taking the initiative to send a steak to the Medical Bay.

"Master Lucifer, would you mind sending one of you servants to the Medical Bay with a steak? It appears that you wolf friend has a pup that needs to be fed." The White Knight said in a respectful tone. Though the daemon in their kidst represented everything tht the Knighthood stood against, he was still a guest abkard the ship and held Title in Hell.

The Morning Star paused for a moment and snapped his finger, ordering onr of the skeletal revanants to bring him another plated steak, potatoes and vegitables.

"If you will excuse me. I will see that this food gets to its proper destination." The Daemon Lord said as he stood from the table and exited into the corridors.

Simultaneously, a new figure entered the canteen, his blonde hair fluttering behind him as he strode in. To some he might have been considered handsome.

To Ella he stank of the Heavenly Host... and body odor from being stuck in his armor for so long.

"Something died and went to heaven and then fell into a pile of feces?" She commented in Storm's general direction as she continued to eat.

"Surely they taught you that cleanliness is next to godliness, so shouldn't you have done that in the last decade?"

By now Ton Ton's ill founded concern had become a source of laughter amongst the small group that still found themseles on the Hanger, enjoying the companionship of comraderie. The scene looked so normal and relaxed that one might have found a scene like it in any number of alternate dimensions.

Wiping a tear from his eyes, Puce finally let Ton Ton in om the joke.

"No, Ton Ton. It's alright. The worst that they could do is make Caim and my life either very comfortable or very much awkward. My bet, is awkwardness, however... It's the thought that counts." The Ener-mancer said before adding...

"This is the way they show their love and affection."


Airship Rising Dawn - Medbay/Morgue:
Charlie | Shadow | Storm | Tajuh | Teri

Standing there with Tajuh, the Dragon stared long and hard at the body, as if he could will it into revealing its secrets. Shaking his head, he could only smell a slight difference between the Elena in his memories and the dead one in front of him. There was also one more thing that needed to be said.

"Regardless of whether or not this Elena is a clone or not, I feel that you should know this. This Elena was with child when she died. If what you say is true and this Elena is a false one, the real one is out there, missing and with child as well." Charlie said as he covered up the corpse with a sheet.

Back in the Medbay, the door opened, revealing a Devil bearing gifts. Well ... a gift ... of dinner.

Rose set the box down and pressed the button. A swirling vortex opened up and began sucking the ladies and corpses into it, warping them into spirits and storing them in the box. Lily finished modifying the device to transmit to the pit after every female and corpse was sucked up but her.Walking over to the box, the weapon was eventually sucked in as well.

Rose kicked on the psycho drive and picked up the box, adding it to the bag on her back. "See you on the other side!" Rose shouted and turned the pit functional. She ran and jumped into it. A massive flash of lightning and sparks and then the pit was calm. However, there was no body in it.
Their systems however, did detect a new virus in it. Soon, across the labs, their systems began to fail and lights began exploding. It was quickly running from place to place, searching for something while unintentionally leaving a trail of destruction.

Cortex

Cortex was monitoring the energy readings given out by Rose's jump into the pit, Her reading combined with those of the dead and living seemed to form something almost like a jig-saw puzzle.
Then all hell broke loose as the console he was at exploded in his face as well as everything else.
"OH SHIT! FUCK! ASS! DICK! BOLLUX! LOCK DOWN THE LAB!" He shouted to his co-workers as the entire chamber shook from the explosions.
In the madness, Bruiser was blown loose from his imprisonment in the ceiling, balls were still a wreak though.
"WHAT HAS SCIENCE DONE?!" He cried as he took cover in the blown out shell of the console he was working at.

Bison

Back in the Command Center, they were just as freaked about the situation as Cortex was.
"SIR! MASSIVE ENERGY SPIKES COMING FROM LAB-1099!"
"Cortex's!? Dammit! Shut it down!" Bison ordered as the sounds of distant explosions grew louder and louder.
"We can't! It's self sustaining!"
"Grrr...Get some Viscus Droids and send them in, whatever is happening in there mustn't get out of that room!" He ordered, it was the 2nd time this week that happened.

The Lazerous pit calmed down and everything was silent. The computer's antivirus programs throughout the entire facility were being overwhelmed, nay, crushed by whatever had been formed when all of souls came together with the rest of the fragments. The command center computers eventually were crashed and blue-screened. Thats when all of the speakers let out ear piercing screams and blew themselves out.

The virus eventually made its way down to Mizune's lab where it found something it liked. IT hijacked the bot assembly line and began to modify parts.

Bison

"Sir! It's moved to Production Lab 316. All Computers are down!"
"Cortex....Now what has that mad bastard done!?" Bison growled as he ran towards the production line, getting blasted with doors opening and closing due to system crashes and the horrible screams from the speakers.
Mizune was watching the production of this new Robot as Bison Warped in to bypass the door lock.
"Mizune, What the hell is going on here!? What is that thing making?!"

Airship Rising Dawn - Canteen
Aftan | Akane | Devon | Ella | Fire Imps (x6) | Gabrielle | Lucifer

After seeing Lucifer take one of the plates towards the Med Bay, Garm gave a happy swish of his tail, grabbed another of the raw steaks with his teeth, and loped after the Devil, making sure their destination lead right to his Pup.

Angelus | Cadolbolg | Caim | Kurumu | Puce | Ton Ton

"This is the way they show their love and affection."

Ton Ton nodded carefully, and said, "Does this mean that the Mistress will learn about gossiping too? Is it some secret thing ladies learn? Will my Mistress spread chaos and disorder when she starts becoming attracted to people!? "

Covering his cheeks in horror, Ton Ton pondered all this aloud.


Airship Rising Dawn - Medbay/Morgue:
Charlie | Shadow | Tajuh | Teri

Before Teri could get to the finer points about how to use a needle properly with Shadow, Lucifer wandered in, with a pleased looking Garm looking in from the entrance, steak still hanging from his mouth. At the smell of the steak and vegetables, the Fallen One could see the girl's eyes glaze over in bliss, and see how it relaxed his Dear Little Cleric to the point of nigh zombification as she took the plate with a happy, if subdued, "Thank you!" and tucked right away, the appreciation for the rare meal showing clearly on her face.

Obviously, she hadn't realized who was the deliverer of her food, or else she may have had a different reaction. Lucifer could only watch with a bemused expression as the Cleric savored her meal, bite by bite.

"Sir Bison... i don't know." She said and watched in awe as the arms moved themselves. "It just started to work on its own and assemble its own bot..." The witch said.

Meanwhile, the arms began to assemble the complicated systems they had created priorly into a body. The torso came together first, being built around a custom spinal cord. Then the limbs were assembled, then attached to the body, many different implants and cybernetics going into them. Then the head was created; an item being inserted into the skull that look a tiny bit like a brain, but was undoubtedly more powerful, then the rest of the workings went in around it. The skin grew over the obvious females body before it released her, draping a towel around the creation as it's hair grew in.

The room was silent as a gasp of air filled it and the android began to breath, not opening its eyes yet. The bot seemed to be practicing breathing and getting that down at the moment. Meanwhile, all traces of the virus had disappeared.

Appearence

Bison

Bison watched as the Robot was constructed right in front of him, clearly worried about whatever that thing was.
"...Lock down that Area until the drones arrive..." He ordered Mizune as the Android got used to living and breathing.
After several tense minutes, several Viscus Armours (Now running on his MUCH lower capacity AI) entered the Lab in a single file line, stepping in time with each other in a jerky robotic manner, a far cry from what Viscus was normally able to do.
Arranging themselves in a Semi-circle between the Android and Bison, their miniguns began to spin to dis courage any resistance.
"You! What. Are you?" He asked, keeping his hand raised, the second he lowered it, they would fire.

The android heard the words, but couldn't make sense of them. She replayed them over and over in her head. They soon became clearer and clearer, she was able to make sense of them. "I... I..." she began, nervously pronouncing the new sounds to her mouth. "I don't know..." she said and began to think. Many different images came to her head and she groaned in pain at it.

"Too many.... m-m-memories..." she said clutching her head with her left hand. "I... I think i know my name..." She said opening her eyes finally. IT took a minute for her vision to ajust, but then she looked over at bison and immediately had a large number of mixed emotions towards him. "My name is Dani." she said, clutching the towel close to her unclothed body.

Bison

"....Drones stand down..." Bison ordered as Viscus armors obeyed, one by one their miniguns stopping.
"Get me Tech Unit, We might need their help on this one." He spoke into his PDA as he neared the new lifeform.
"...Dani....this is very important...Do you know where you are?..." He asked, if Rose was inside this New Dani, that would mean she'd know where the bunker is, what AIM's operations were, far too much knowledge for anyone outside the group to know.
That would make her a real threat to the Cartel.

"I... I don't know. I know names and feelings towards others... but i don't know where i am. You're Bison." Dani said and turned to look at the other. "You're Mizune." she said then looked back at bison. "Mr. Bison, i'm hungry, can i get some food? I haven't eaten, ever." she said as her stomach rumbled. The girl tried to stand up, but found her legs gave out under her own weight for now. "Please, i need to know who i am. I need to help, somehow..." she said an looked down.

Bison

"...Well?....You heard the woman. And get her something to wear as well..." Bison ordered his "Men" as they escorted Dani to the main Canteen.
As she left, Bison said to Mizune "Until we can prove otherwise, that woman has knowledge of this Base and it's operations. As a result, the second she steps out of line, we kill her. When she is clothed and fed, I'm leaving her to your care."
"What? Why me?"
"Because everyone else here are complete Morons?" He flatly answered before returning to the command room.

Wesker

The former Brains of the Cartel was enjoining 3:40 at the bar, it was his favorite time after 3:30 and 3:20.
While it was normally a big scene when Dani's Viscus escort brought her here (Now wearing a set of AIM Test Subject clothes), Wesker wasn't even aware he was in the canteen at the moment, given how are along he was.

Airship Rising Dawn - Canteen
Aftan | Akane | Devon | Ella | Fire Imps (x6) | Gabrielle | Storm

Aftan ignored the bickering and returned her attention back to her cohorts and dinner. All these new faces, new personalities that had a mesh inside such a limited space. She felt sorry for whomever was leading them.

"You know what would be awesome. If we let MTV broadcast what it was like living on this Airship. 'This is the true story... of thirty-seven strangers... picked to live in an Airship...work together and have their lives taped... to find out what happens... when people stop being polite... and start getting real...The Real World.'" The Black Knight giggled at her own joke as she watched what was sure to be the start of some sort of altercation.


Airship Rising Dawn - Hanger
Angelus | Cadolbolg | Caim | Kurumu | Puce | Ton Ton

It was at this point that Kurumu noticed Ton Ton's reaction to Caim and Puce's teasing.

"Hey! Don't you go about spreading these vicious lies about us women! You both know that you're on thin ice with the Women's Federation and you both know the extent of the Federation's reach!" The Succubus said with mock anger before bursting into laughter.

"Ton Ton. You don't need to worry. I'm sure your mistress will turn out to be a great woman and will make some man happy. But... until then, she's a kid and you don't need to worry yourself about such things." Kuru said as she turned back to Angie.

"Oh of these days, we'll have to figure out a way to get them back for those comments."


Airship Rising Dawn - Medbay/Morgue:
Charlie | Lucifer | Shadow | Tajuh | Teri

As our Dear Little Cleric tucked into the meal, Lucifer couldn't help but make a mental note to bring her more meals in the future. It seemed that she had an appreciation for simple things in life, something that was obviously lacking aboard an Airship that went from crisis to crisis.

As he was about to sit on a chair opposite the feasting young woman, Lucifer took note of the two men that were standing in the morgue, looking over Elena's body...

"That's strange." The Devil thought to himself as he edged closer to the doorway that separated the morgue from the medical bay and got a better view of the body.

"Who is that?" The Morning Star finally asked aloud as lifted the sheet to get a better look at the body.

"This is Elen-"

"No. It's not. I restored Elena Volkov to life after she was stabbed through the stomach by a rather large sword. Even now I would have been able to sense trace amounts of the energy I expended to keep death at bay... but it's absent. This isn't her." The Fallen One said, leaving the two men to decide how best to deal with the information that he had imparted on them.

Finally able to take a seat, he waited for the Cleric to finish her meal and smiled at her when she did.

"You're welcome." He said as he moved the plate from in front of her and as he remembered the expression of contentment on the young Cleric's face, he added:

"If you always smile like that during dinner, remind me to bring you your meals more often."
