Kaishihara Pharmicutical West Hallways Entrance: Rising Dawn Crew + Yu Narukami + Mitsuru

DJ, change to the battle music, Kthanks?

Ella grimaced at the blood as she held onto her spear. "Understood, Caim. With how this whole damn case has been, this is only going to get messier as we go. I swear, it's like they think we'll turn back from something as simple as that." It wasn't too much longer after that when she went to reply to Angie. "Glad we could give you that time, although it would have been nicer if you two actually got to spend the time for yourselves instead of learning how to fight." Still, she was determined to see this through, and the arrival of the shadows had her pulling out her Evoker to summon Ishtar, directing her to blast some of the Shadows with a bolt of lightning.

Slindis also replied to David and Teri. "Still, you've proven to be a lot more than the hothead I took you for when we first met. I'm honestly glad for that!

Teri, it just needs thinking on your feet and it's all things we went through with our physical training. Stay sharp!" The arrival of the Shadows made the paladin respond by slashing at her left arm's sleeve with her Evoker glove to summon Joanne, teaming with Narukami as the pair bobbed and weaved through the Shadows and shattered a few from their attacks.

Sadei responded in concern as the Shadows appeared, doing her best to reassure Teri. "Teri, we're gonna get through to the bottom of this, so don't worry. Tama, you're up!"

Shortly after, Melethia saw the Shadows pop out and saw an unusual card, stabbing it to call forth Andras. "I knew it was gonna be bad with that setup. Don't focus too much on covering both sides, just pick a way and punch through!" Andras worked to blast some of the enemies that had been missed by the other's shots with the intent of punching on through to the computer room.

Finally, since Devon was closest to Jenny, she was able to reassure the startled Gardevoir. "Look, we're gonna get to the end of this so you need to stay with us. Jenny, we've got a job to finish!" She stabbed through the floating card to summon Mengde as he issued a loud rallying cry, and the Bard pulled out her blade and stabbed through the Shadows that got near her and Jenny.

Mr. President | The Advisor | Merlin
Location: Leaving Los Angeles
Time: Morning

While the President's convoy was leaving the area, the built in TVs in his transport were set to the local news media as they were covering the aftermath of the attack.
Much to his dismay, that news Media was Fox News

Fox News:
"Welcome back to Fox and Friends, the big story today, of course, being the terrorist attack in LA. This story is still developing at the morning goes on, but I think we got the main points down.
Early last night, a well armed group of international thugs under the employ of the "Mishima Clan" or as he likes to call it, G-corp, landed in the city of LA under false pretenses of stopping an "Alien Attack". They then proceeded to cause massive damage to the Business district, revealing their true motive as wanting to undermine their business rivals by using their private military. Senator Armstrong was one of the first people to denounce the president for what he has called quote "The worst thing Japan has done to us since Pearl Harbor" and calls for quote "A global weapons system to keep both enemies and allies of America in line". While we don't advocate for his extreme calls, it's clear that our "Dear Lord President" needs a serious wake up call. And now for the weather."

Already, he could hear that smug cigar chomping bastard laughing at him...

"Well, I think it's better to be able to speak of your failures then to not be able to speak at all. Besides, we got a pretty good handle on Teleportation technology over here, might work out for the better in the end, hm?" Violet then added, shooting Vanessa a smile while one of the building's caters showed up with her salad.
"Speaking of, I am curious about how technologically advanced your world is. I mean, Teleportation here is still rather privately owned and guarded. While we can go from realm to realm, I don't think it'll be viable for the rest of the population to use in my lifetime." He then said as he walked back over to the console getting the teleportation read out.
"And even then, there are few people who would use such technology on a regular basis, I know the Rising Dawn have some issues with it. They are always jumping from one world to the next, It's as if someone fell asleep at the wheel or something!"

Kazuya | Hargreave | Anyone else
Location: Los Angeles | LA Airport
Time: Morning

Kazuya grumbled as he picked himself back up, 20 million was a bit of a hit for him to take, but it would be worth it to get the location of Kenneth Black.
"I have my ways...I'll arrange a drop off to your Airship within 24 hours. You give me the location and Dr. Ashford goes free and I won't have you put on every watch list from here to China. And next time, Tell me if your fucking working for someone I'm after..." He said, letting down his guard down as they seemed to reach an agreement.
Granted, he had no idea what Ashford was supposted to be doing, but the idea of denying Kenneth him was appealing.

Time: Late Morning

Vanessa smiled and shrugged in response. "True. And I suppose that it would, but I'm sure Mr. Mishima wouldn't let me collaborate without making me swear my undying allegiance to him." She replied before looking over toward the cater and thanking them for the food.

She took two bites of her food and hummed in delight before savoring the next morsel. "Hmm? Oh! Well, my world isn't that far ahead of this one. We've got transportation hovercraft, functioning holographic interfaces, various androids, and more all available to the general public. I've actually got something that's not yet public, but in the process of becoming so, if you'd like a demonstration." She explained, seeming to get a bit more comfortable as she sat herself down facing Violet.

The labcoat woman tilted her head a bit. "Wait... The teleportation here only goes from dimension to dimension...? What about just teleporting from one place on this world to another place here? And who is Rising Dawn?" She asked, her face looking a small bit confused.

"Everybody likes to use that threat like it actually means anything. Plus I have some bad news for you. I don't know where he's located because I've never visited his base. Everything is done either through intermediaries or he visits me personally. Good news is I can take you to him since he's currently staying at my helicarrier. This'll probably be the only chance you get," Matt told Kazuya.

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

Violet did nod in understanding, Kazuya was a rather demanding boss to everyone he employed and even more so to a lot of people he didn't.
"True...But...Kazuya doesn't have to know, now does he? As far as he'll know, you're just staying here until I can get a return address." He then winked, letting Vanessa know that she wouldn't have to worry there.
"Still, as for the Rising Dawn, like Kazuya, they are a group of people who ensure that this world is left more or less intact whenever the likes of Darkside show up. They more often then not though called off to other worlds, leaving Kazuya's people, and mine, to keep things in order while they're gone. Sure, the governments of the world do their thing, but we show up just in case things get out of hand. Wouldn't do to have the world get blown up, now would it?" He then explained, wishing he could see the Rising Dawn himself at some point.
"Getting back on topic though, we can do local teleportation, but the number of people we are allied with that have the technology and resources required to set up a receiving teleport is limited to the point that it's just easier to call a cab." The doctor then said before he finally got to the part about her showing off "Hidden Technology.
His mind clearly eager to see what she had to offer, he smiled and said "Now then, what do you wish to show me?..."

Kazuya | Hargreave | Anyone else
Location: Los Angeles | LA Airport
Time: Morning

"...You screw me over, it'll be the last thing you do..." Kazuya warned, he didn't have any reason to trust Matt, but he seemed loyal to his payday so that would have to do.
"I'll get the cargo hold and sneak on board from there. Tell one of your men to leave a spare uniform and I'll tail you to him. Blow my cover, our deal will be off and you'll never land that Airship in one piece." He then added as he began making his way towards the jet.
"And I'll throw in an extra million for the car..."

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

"Soooo... you're saying that if he finds out about us working together, you're going to take all the blame?" Vanessa shot back with a playful smirk. "That's quite noble of you~" She rubbed her chin as Violet described the Rising Dawn. "Interesting... So are they allied with you then or just happen to be in the same business of keeping the world intact?" She asked next, seeming more interested before taking another quick bite of her salad. Ah, this is way better than anything at home~!

Seeing that Violet was interested, the woman set her salad down on the floor and pulled out her PDA from her labcoat pocket. Pointing it toward the bowl of greens, she tapped on the screen a few times and a small blue beam shot out from the device. As the light touched the food, it looked to be covered in a grid of blue lines. In a matter of a few seconds, cube by cube, the salad looked like it was being sucked up into the woman's device. Afterward, she aimed the device toward the desk Violet was sitting at and tapped another few buttons. It shot the beam of blue out again and in a flash of blue, the salad reappeared on the desk. "In short, this device can convert real objects into data and vice versa. The people I worked with coined it digistruction."

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

"Oh my..."
Suddenly the sleazy side of Violet faded as he leaned in at the PDA in awe, Sure, he had some experiance working with Bags of Holding and other objects with impossible capacities, but the idea of turning real objects into code was something new to him.
"This is amazing! How did you program the data values for each atom?! Is there a cap on the amount of data you can save?! The size of the object?!" he asked, clearly Digistruction was still alien to this realm, but that might change if Violet played his cards right.
Now, in order to make sure Kazuya didn't conscript Vanessa into his company, Violet would have to take the credit for this discovery of course...

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

Vanessa sat up and picked the bowl of salad back up before taking another bite and sitting back down in her seat. She gulped it down before giggling at Violet's new found interest... that didn't involve her body. Almost refreshing. However, she got a bit more serious as she explained. "Programming this device took half of my life to do and numerous colleagues... But what we did in a nutshell was come up with an encoding for both atoms and the bonds between them and compressed the format so we wouldn't have an impossibly large file once the object was converted." She said, scratching behind her head before taking another bite of her food.

"Even with that format, this device can really only hold an average living room's worth of objects... so essentially 2 cars fully loaded with objects. Anything larger, either in size or amount of matter and... well, as tests have shown, mile-wide explosions have occurred." She explained further, her expression growing dark. "As such, I wouldn't recommend going storing any more than a car's worth of matter at any given time."

Last post for the night

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

As Vanessa went into detail, Violet began frantically taking notes, inputting her every word into his tablet, if he was going to have any chance of figuring out this technology, he'd need all the help he could get.
"Mile...Wide...Explosion...Tch, well, even if this is a bust, Kaz would get something out of this!" He joked in rather poor taste, though the notion of having a PDA cause an explosion that big could be useful.
"Man, this plus Bags of Holding could allow us to transport tons of matter with a single person!" He then added afterwards, if he got a Bag of Holding and threw a few dozen of those PDAs into it...

"You know, I was having a hard time imagining something that could surpass your beauty, but your intelligence vastly out matches it!" He then added, returning to his usual flattery, though he was still focused on getting down as much of specs as possible.

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

Violet's joke elicited a frown from Vanessa as she crossed her arms. "Must you really think of using this in such a violent manner? You'd be losing men if you tried to use the device like that." She chastised before tilting her head a bit. "A bag of holding? Is it similar to my device?"

She groaned softly as Violet slowly began to drift back into his playboy persona. ...It was nice while it lasted at least... "Th-Thank you... but in all seriousness, I can't tell you much more than that... not until I get the kinks in my own design down pat... and for that to happen, I need to get home." She said, hoping to get the conversation off her device.

Once everything was in order and they were up in the air, Matt opened a comm channel to the helicarrier. "This is Hargreave, confirmation code 'Killimanjaro'. I am inbound with prisoner and a potential recruit. Make sure to have a set of large plain fatigues ready when we land. And please tell our client that he owes me a bottle of single malt Scotch. We will be landing in a few hours, Hargreave over and out," Matt said before switching off the comm channel.

"Interesting," Ken said when he got the message. "Tell my pilot that once the prisoner is secured on my plane he is to take off without me once Hargreave is out of sight. Other than that can I get a Poor Boy[1] and a bottle of Blue Moon? Thanks," Ken said as the staff manager left. Ken laid back in his chair and smiled as began to ponder about violently killing this person that wanted to kill him.

James sat in the corner of the helicopter as it whirled towards their destination. He
had his Tarot Cards set out next to him in case anybody wanted a look at them and was
trying to build a tower made up of poker cards. His mind was elsewhere though.

He hadn't even been on the ground ten minutes and already he'd seen an angel and a guy
he assumed was Darkside duking it out at full throttle, and before he knew it, the angel,
who he found to be named Icarus, basically tore Darkside into bloody chunks. An image he
highly doubted would leave his head anytime soon.

But before he could ask questions, the winged man took off, looking almost ashamed of
himself. Whoever that Icarus guy was...he must've had quite a story behind him. Something
told James he'd be getting another dose of action very soon.

The Tarot user looked up from his cards,"Say, you guys know how close we are to Tokyo?"

Kazuya | Hargreave | Anyone else
Location: Los Angeles Air Space
Time: Morning

Kazuya willingly let himself play prisoner, though once they were on board, A few of Hargreave's people might remember him as the Sparring instructor that kicked their asses, not good for their cover story.
"Once I'm within range, I'll blast him with my Eye Laser, I find few can take a blast to the chest like that and walk away from it." He explained to Hargreave as he waited for them to reach the Merc's base.

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

Violet paused his note taking once Vanessa asked about Bags of Holding.
"Right, Right! Bags of holding. We acquired a few from a series of visitors to our realm from another more magically inclined one. Imagine a small pouch that can hold a volume of materials much greater then it's size would allow. Bigger on the inside so to speak. It's a lot like Digistruction, only the materials remain in psychical form instead of being converted to code." He explained, kinda wishing he had one lying around the place in order to show off for her.
"As for your trip out, I'm sorry, but until I can get a read of your realm, My hands are tied. Once I got that though, it's just a matter of sending you out the door."

Boss | Icarus
Location: A Long Forgotten forest
Time: Afternoon

Mood Music

Boss sighed, and sat down next to the young angel. "You're not the only one that struggles. I have...a friend, who has something evil inside of him. I don't know what it is, but I know it's powerful, and I know that I have no idea how he keeps it in control. But knowing him, I can tell you one thing; you can't do it alone. You need someone to help you. People aren't meant to be alone, especially people who deal with what you're having to deal with. You need help. And maybe I can't help you, but there has to be someone out there who can, maybe someone you know."

"I can't." Icarus said. "You need to leave or I'll hurt you."

Boss laughed. "I don't think you could really hurt me if you wanted to. And if I change my mind, I'll just teleport away. I can do that.

Boss extended his hand. "My name's Boss, by the way. Yes, just Boss. I don't think you told me yours..."

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

Vanessa tilted her head as she listened to Violet's description. "Interesting... I'm not well versed in magic... as you can probably tell... but that seems a lot less dangerous than using digistruction..." She put a hand to her chin as she thought for a moment or two before looking back to Violet. "Well, since I'm not going to be doing anything of importance yet, would it be alright if you told me where I could find a Bag of Holding... or at least let me transverse the city? Preferably alone... "I'm not one who enjoys sitting around at all."

Selena | Vanessa | Violet
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

"No, only place you could get one of those is either from the visitors themselves or from the Vault down in the basement. I mean, We still don't entirely understand how they even work! While we do know it's magic, we haven't the foggiest notion of how to make one." Violet explained as he brought up a hologram of a hand rooting though a sort of bottomless bag, being able to get it's entire arm inside it despite it only being the size of a glove.
"Closest I've came to it is that it hosts a small pocket void where the material is stored, Imagine the RAM unit on your PDA, only more...Magical." He then added as he put his finger to his chin in thought.
"Now, while Kazuya only allows certain people down to the vault, you're in luck: I am one of them!"
And with the amount of security in this place, she'd most likely have to lug him around just to look for the restroom.
Perhaps that explosion did kill her and this was in fact hell?

Arriving at G-Corp, James allowed himself and knocked on the lab door, hoping to check
in on everyone. The knocking was...well, for the sake of politeness,"Hello? Sorry to
disturb, just wondering if there's anybody here?"

Selena | Vanessa | Violet | James
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

It was then that James entered the room, Violet instantly reconizing him.
"Ah James! I see your first mission was a success, Ha!" He then cheerfully said, kinda glad he gave him that job offer after all.
"Just sorry if Kazuya got a little intense out in the field, he REALLY didn't like Darkside..."

James bowed to Violet and smiled a little,"It's no problem, Mr Violet. I knows first-hand that
there's no room for horsing around when out on the job...or when innocent lives are at risk.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help out there. I tried, but.." He shrugged,"Well...to be honest,
the fight was kinda over before it even started, though I'm glad we stopped that fella's rampage."

The young man rubbed the back of his neck,"I am curious about a couple things though...that guy
who offed Darkside...who exactly is he? He looked like an angel to me..."

Selena | Vanessa | Violet | James
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

Vanessa sighed a small bit to herself. ...Why me...? But for the sake of science... I must grin and bear it for longer... Afterward, she gave Violet a nod, taking note of the hologram and his description. "As long as you're sure Mr. Mishima won't try to fillet me, I'll appreciate the escort to observe the item. Words can only convey so much..."

She was cut short as another person walked into the room. Blinking twice at James, she looked him over carefully as he reported back to Violet. He must be an underling here then... After he finished speaking, she gave him a wave and a smile.

"Don't worry about being spotted once we're inside. Since I've labeled you as a recruit you'll be given a face concealing white balaclava that you'll wear. They're used to identify the recruits from everybody else as a sort of hazing ritual. It's also customary to give any new recruits a tour of the ship so nobody will ask questions. Other than that you should be fine," Matt explained to Kazuya.

Four hours later and they were landing at the helicarrier. When the stairs lowered a soldier was waiting at the bottom with a bag full of the clothes that he requested which was tossed up to him. "Go put these on in the bathroom recruit," Matt said as he tossed the bag to Kazuya. Matt walked down the stairs with Dr. Ashford in front of him. "Take this prisoner and secure him in Mr. Black's jet, only rough him up if he starts fighting. Hurry up recruit, we ain't got all day," Matt yelled into the plane as Ashford was lead elsewhere.

Icarus stood up,
"A-are you sure you can help? I, I want to be with my family again someday, If you really know someone who can h-"
he got up and saw The dagger at Boss's belt
"Where did you get that?" he said pointing at the Dagger
"That Dagger I know it It should belong to Darkside, but.... he didn't have it when we fought, He looked at it.

"C-Could I have that? I slayed Darkside and I'd like to have something to remind myself at least one nightmare is over, you did just drink all of my mothers Sake." he said, it may have been bad to try and guilt trip, but he doubted Boss really had any sentiment to that dagger.
"If you know someone who can help. I'll go with you. Oh and my Name is Icarus." he said.

Time: Late Morning

Selena had been scrying with her Crystal ball when suddenly the scepter glowed,
Selena;s eyes widened she held the scepter in one hand and managed to find a location
"AHA I FOUND HIM" she shouted in excitement the other looked at her, causing her to blush.
"I managed to pinpoint his location he seems to be with someone over a forest, hang on, odd the person has identified himself as boss. Do you know anyone by that name?" she asked Violet.

Boss | Icarus
Location: A Long Forgotten forest
Time: Afternoon

Boss pulled the dagger out of his belt and handed it to Icarus. "Yeah. Take it. I don't even know what I'm doing with it; I can throw skyscrapers at people, I don't need a knife."

Icarus nodded, and took the small blade. "And I didn't say I could help." Boss said. "In fact, I'm pretty sure I said I can't. But...I mean, is there anyone here that you care about? Do you have any friends? Anyone who's tried to reach out to you, other than me?"

000Ronald:

Boss | Icarus
Location: A Long Forgotten forest
Time: Afternoon

Icarus wasn't so sure.
"I-I don't have anyone, I talked to this one ninja his name was edge and he seemed to be nice to me, but, I don't think he trusts me anymore, not after he saw what I am, I think I burned my chances, You felt it didn't you? when I snap like that I just lose everything. and urgh I still feel like crap from that sake. he held his head, and stumbled, he sat down.
"I miss my mother" he said quietly, and rested his head against his knees.
He wished he could see someone he knew anyone.

Boss | Icarus
Location: A Long Forgotten forest
Time: Afternoon

With second[1] Boss and Icarus talking together, the weather above the long forgotten forest had became cloudy. White clouds clashed together, yet a incredibly quiet thumping noise came from nowhere. The clouds had become darker, and were slowly turning black. The thumping noise was recognized as thunder, it had seemed a storm was coming, yet it was forming very, very quickly, unnatural like. The skies had begun to go crazy.

Through the clouds a large figure loomed overhead of the two, larger than even a mountain. The two could easily see two big long legs drop out from the sky, then suddenly, the figure simply dropped onto some of the forest some way from the two figures. The large thing was certainly a creature, but not any creature, it was a monster, a demon. This was one foe that the crew of The Rising Dawn had fought with before.

The giant lightning dragon, defeated by a small party in Africa.
Yet this demon did not move dangerously, aggressively or even call upon lightning, but it moved more calm and swiftly, in a non-hostile manner.
Yet if anyone could look closer, a figure was on the Dragon, if they could look on closer it was a figure with blue hair.

The forest's air began to change, it felt like so many things. Emotions, power, memory, nostalgia, sadness, anger and so much more. Yet the most notable thing that happened during the pounding thunder with no rain, was that arm hair was standing straight.

Mr. President | The Advisor | Merlin | Killer Nuns.
Location: Leaving Los Angeles
Time: Morning

"That motherfucking bastard."

A soft, yet incredibly angry voice filled the craft. "Oh I'm going to tear that arsehole a new one! Shorn contact the FBI to settle this thing with Fox, also order them to tell their CEO or whatever that they're going to taste my foot up their ass! As with Armstrong, hire some kid to put a flaming truck of dog crap on his yard ... and when I get back, I'll give my response." The President turned back and said to his robed Advisor who immediately gave a salute to walk to the communications part of the chopper.

"Girls you keep Merlin company." He looked over to the Nuns who were going their job well already. The President though, just simply sat down and pulled out a bottle of alcohol from somewhere and started to drink, all the while of thinking about how to give all that shit back to Armstrong.

And then it struck him.
"Septic truck."

"Ah, Icarus. He was the one who gave us the tip on Darkside, I think he had some personal beef with the guy, but as long as that thing is in the ground, I don't mind. He's a little wet behind the ears, acts without thinking sometimes, but he seems like a good kid." Violet explained to James before Selena exclaimed that she managed to find the Angel in question.
"Really? That was a stroke of luck. We were looking for Boss anyway. Eh, he's a friend of Edge that went missing a day or two ago. Well, if you want, I could arrange a transport to take you all there." He said as he pulled out his PDA to put the order though.
"While you're doing that, I could bring Vanessa here to the Vault, Get to know each other better..." He playfully said, still not getting the hint that Vanessa just wasn't into him.

Kazuya | Hargreave | Anyone else
Location: Airship
Time: Morning

Keeping his mouth shut like a good lackey, Kazuya quickly changed into his new attire, though he helped his ruse by fumbling a little as he did.
With his disguise on, he began to follow Hargreave, scouting out the Airship as he took the tour.
"Wow. How much this this place cost? I mean, Damn, not even the US has shit this advanced." He asked, though he did so in a flawless Boston accent.

Selena | Vanessa | Violet | James

Time: Late Morning

....Actually... Screw it. I can just find someone else to escort me down there... Hopefully. Vanessa thought to herself, not wishing to be in a room alone with Violet. She could only let her curiosity lead her along so far after all. "Well... seeing as I've never seen an angel before and due to the fact I doubt the Vault will be moving anywhere anytime soon... would it be alright if I tagged along with Ms. Selena and Mr. James?" She asked, looking toward the two, hoping they'd allow it.

DotSlash:

Selena | Vanessa | Violet | James
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

Selena had been preparing to get moving, when Vanessa asked to come along.
"Hey if you don't mind another broom ride we can get moving right now Um James was it? your going to have to be able to fly a long distance I have his location. She walked out she did want to store the scepter in case Icarus got.... aggressive.
Selena thought for a moment then turned to Vanessa
"Can you send a message to Edge and tell him we're going to get Icarus and his friend 'Boss' is with him? We may have to hurry, he's not just a half angel he's in danger of falling, If he's pushed to far if he's exposed for too long his inner savagery could very well consume him not only that, but he wasn't too happy when he learned what he was he may be unstable and could hurt himself, We can't let him stay on his own for long.

James listened intently to all he was being told, nodding along to everything,"I see...well,
if he helped us put that Darkside fella down for good he can't be that bad. At least he's not
one of those angels from the Shin Megami Tensei series...hopefully.."

Hearing himself being addressed by the girls he looked up at them,"Sure, I don't have anything
against you accompanying us, Miss Selena..as for my..transportation..well, don't worry.." He pulled
out the Temperance Tarot and let it hover over his hand,"I got a friend who can take care
of that..if I ask nicely, of course." At this, he chuckled lightly.

Selena | Vanessa | Violet | James
Location: Floor 69, G-corp, Tokyo, Japan.
Time: Late Morning

Vanessa gave Selena a slow shake of the head. "I only met Mr. Edge for a few moments while he tended to a head wound I had gotten in the explosions that brought me here. Needless to say, we never traded contact information... Sorry." She pointed a thumb toward Violet. "...Maybe Dr. Violet would be a better person to ask? That information is definitely something we want to get out ASAP."

Looking back toward James, she nodded and slowly checked herself over, making sure she had everything on her person. Once she found this was the case, she stretched herself out. "Well then, I'm ready when you two are. Another broom ride sounds nice." Internally, the woman was jumping for joy since she would probably not have to deal with Violet, even if it was for a small amount of time.

Kaishihara Pharmicutical West Hallways Entrance: Rising Dawn Crew + Yu Narukami + Mitsuru

DJ, change to the battle music, K thanks?

With the chaos unfolding, and Deadshot appearing to go down, the resident Cleric immediately turned her focus in that direction, sending a quick message back to her staff before summoning her Persona,
"You got it, Sadei!"
"Toyotama-hime, come forth! Bring us the protection of the Lord!"

Whirling her staff to smash her Arcana Card, her watery Persona appeared in her usual puff of mist, and the Cleric paused for a moment as she burned away a turning attempt and activated her Healing Aura. Following that, she called to Garm and the wolf beseeched his Persona, "Gelert, punch through!". A flash of light, and a summoned Persona later, and a hole appeared in the wall of Shadows, allowing for the Cleric and her wolf to get to the former assassin. Giving a quick chant, Teri placed a finger on Deadshot's shoulder as healing energy begin to take away the pain of the hit; "Careful now. Don't want to get assimilated by the swarm."

Seeing the swarm of Shadows pour in, Ton Ton and Cadolbolg sprung to action next, leaping from Devon's shoulders and both calling to their Personas as their Evokers activated, "We got your back, Devon! Galahad, help me!"
"We won't let anyone get hurt! Lei Zhenzi, burn em!"
In a swirl of the traditional blue mist, Lei Zhenzei and Galahad appeared, Galahad bringing down his knife upon a Shadow, and Lei Zhenzi bathing another in a burst of flame. Following that, Ton Ton landed on Cadolbolg's back, and the two barreled towards their next quarry of choice; using Knife and Tail to cut their next foe down.

Caim and Angelus immediately went back to back at the influx of Shadows, Caim smirking as his PDA spoke, "Is it me, or is it that some things never change when we enter the lair of the big bad whatever?"
"Hmph. Seems that way, with swarming tactics always being a preferred method. Now, I'm going with Melethia and David. Do be a dear and mind the children? Echidna, we've work to do."
"As if I'd abandon them. What kind of father do you take me for? I'll see you in a bit. Odin, let's get this done."

As the two partners parted, a pair of Tarot cards hung in the air, and where then destroyed, bringing in the Personas of the Warrior and the Monstrous Mother respectively; Caim dashing towards the group attacking his allies, and Angelus to follow David and Melethia.

Kaishihara Pharmicutical: North Entrance: Melethia, David, Angelus + Fuuka and her team

Upon arrival to the northern most entrance, Angelus, Melethia, and David saw a Persona near the back, as well as several of the officers doing their best to fend of an oncoming swarm not unlike the one from further back in the halls. Fuuka's voice could be heard in their minds as they approached, hearing the relief in Fuuka's voice, "You're here! Thank goodness, I was afraid we're done for. I can sense that the rest of your party is still alright, and that your other scanner (Dimitri) is jammed. Unfortunately, Juno and I can only do so much. Please, help the officers!"

-One battle later, and some regrouping-

With the Dawn being as ready as they were for a fight, the assault on the Shadows proved to be a success, and no one came out with anything Teri or Slindis couldn't fix. However, that brought two eerie conclusions:

1) Depsite looking completely normal, this place was a Shadow Zone, and Shadows/Personas could roam freely
2) From what could be gathered, all the personnel was missing.

However, this left the Lab open for investigation. With a flick of a light switch, the main laboratory was revealed.

Vats containing what looked like patients of the virus littered the lab, the progression between the differing stages worsening as the vats continued down the hall. In some vats, an inky black substance floated in some form of liquid; and papers were scattered every which way on varying surfaces.

With a blanched face, Mitsuru simply pointed up and muttered, "You know where Kaishihara is. Go."

Kaishihara Pharmaceutical: Top Floor: Kaishihara's Office

Mood Music

The trip to the top of the building was surprisingly... Quiet. No more Shadows had appeared since the party had first arrived to the building; making the building feel that much more stifling. Minor noises seemed like trumpets, footsteps feeling even more heavy than when they first started. To the less stout hearted, one could almost say it was "creepy".

However, aside from possible paranoia, this also allowed for the top of the pharmaceutical building to be reached at a quicker pace. This lead, eventually, to the entrance of Kashihara's office, and inside:

The man himself seated at his desk like any regular office worker. upon the Dawn's arrival into his office, he simply asked, "Who are you, and why are you in my office?"
