Overview

In October of 2019 a rift in space opened near the orbit of Mars, an escalation between humanity and the Cabal Empire seemed on the verge of transpiring but fortunately did not and the Cabal Empire laid successful claim to a portion of the planet whilst sharing a fraction of that portion with their new ally.

Months after the claim Mars remains more or less the same however the environment has changed, there is now an atmosphere on the planet through what appears to be an unknown method of terraforming however it still visibly appears the same as before the Empire asserted their claim on the planet.

Mars is still covered with dust and sand rich in reddish iron oxides and its polar ice caps are in one piece, seemingly the only significant difference between then and now is that you can safely breathe on Mars without any protective gear and the temperatures are closer to the norms of Earth. The cause of the red planet's enigmatic change is believed to be a result of the application of mysterious Martian terraforming technology that has features and functions unknown to mankind.

Security

The Cabal Empire had to leave behind a significant portion of their total naval power and military power behind the alternate reality they originated from however they still transferred over with a significant military force that is not be be taken lightly.

The current space power of Mars numbers over one hundred thousand ships but under a million, thirty thousand "light" military ships serve as the 24/7 active interplanetary defense force of the planet whilst the significant bulk of the rest of their naval assets reside by the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, in an attempt in rebuilding the industrial strength of the Empire back to peak strength.

Every city on Mars possesses a theater class shield generator that can manifest two forms of shielding, the first is a particle shield which redirects incoming sandstormsaway from the city with a 100% success rate. The first form of shielding still allows shuttles and other objects of large mass enter the city unopposed, however, the second form of shielding dubbed combat shielding is only activated during moments of conflict and is powerful enough that it can successfully defend against extended bombardment from high yield nuclear weaponry and its secondary effects without harm to the populace inside the shield but the consequence, in turn, is that outside of teleportation or disabling the shield nothing can get in or out of it until it is lowered.

The Cabal Empire census has a total population of 750,000,000 biological beings listed however only 10% of the Cabal Empire population is listed in the military. Despite this, the Empire's total enlisted only consists of 1% of their total military power as the other 99% of their military power consists of advanced Martian automatons and the True A.I.

Space Station HELIOS
Space Station HELIOS

The space station HELIOS was an ancient military command center of the Cabal Empire and saw decades of combat however it has now been re-purposed as a docking and space sport for outsiders, the only way in and out of Mars besides being aboard a Cerulan or Cabal Military ship is through the 60km wide Helios station that has the capability to dock over a hundred aircraft carriers at once and still possess enough space to hold tens of thousands of people aboard.

Space Station HELIOS also possesses a space elevator composed of vibranium components that can safely transport a thousand tons of cargo from space down to the Martian surface in mere minutes. All new comers in Cabal Empire territory MUST contact Helios Station and dock aboard the space station for a security check before being cleared to land on the planet.

Any attempt to land or arrive on Mars with out permission will result in several of the three hundred long ranged electric magnetic pulse cannons installed on the station to open fire on the space craft in an attempt disable it which would if successful be towed via Cabal space-carrier back to its point of origin or outside of Cabal territory, space craft that display apparent immunity to the stations non lethal armaments will be targeted instead with lethal prejudice via one of the hundred rail gun deck turrets installed aboard the station.

Environment

The Martian Environment can be considered similar to the arid states of the United States, a significant portion of the Martian surface is covered in red dust and the temperature at night can drop as low as 32ºF but in mid-day and dusk the temperature remains a global average of 79.5°F.

No Caption Provided

super futuristic (In comparison to Earth) cities taking the form of perfect circles sprinkled through out the surface of Mars, these cities are the life blood of the Cabal Empire and each city is entirely self sufficient even able to produce a quota of spare resources to contribute to the external expanses of the Empire or any cities that are lacking in one particular resource.

These cities are incredibly clean thanks to the always active particle shield generator and millions of automatons that operate daily to maintain both the pristine image as well as structure of these giant Metropolitan areas that on average have a living population of four million. The main method of transportation through out a city is via solar powered hovercraft's, the second method of transportation is a complex tram system that can reach almost any section of the city in minutes, the final method is a transportation pad however these transportation pads can only be utilized to teleport to other cities not with in the same city. (Please note that the Imperial Sector cities do not posses teleportation pads instead they have anti-teleporation devices that prevent any form of teleportation working inside the sector or allowing foreigners from outside to teleport inside)

Every building in a city is structurally hardened to resist heavy weapons fire in the event of an invasion as well as containing hundreds of large emergency bunkers spread through out the city that the populace can take shelter in when ever there is a disaster or danger to public safety.

Locations

Mars is divided into six major districts with each district roughly the size of a large country, each sector has dozens of "Mega" cities that are about on average 250 miles wide. Every sector with the exception of the Imperial Sector is governed by a Governor who in turn has various tiers of nobles under their jurisdiction that manage their slices of territory on behalf of the Governors preferred interests.

Imperial Sector

No Caption Provided

The Imperial Sector is where the Empress and remnants of the royal family reside along with the most loyal subjects of the empire. The most notable locations of the Imperial Sector include the Psionic Knight academy which serves as the stronghold and headquarters of all Psionic Knights followed by the Imperial Palace where the remnants of the royal family reside in.

A significant portion of the Imperial Sector architecture consists of large and wide Cathedral esque structures as well as Sacral esque structures made of the finest minerals, both types painted in bright lively colors that express wealth and beauty.

The residents of the Imperial Sector appear to be very posh and have glamorous lifestyle, from a metaperspective they could be considered the elites of the Empire often consisting of either the wealthiest of the Empire or the most loyal of Noble subjects.

Yet, despite the elite status of many residents there, their behavior is far from negative imagery of noblehood that is associated with Earth. All the elite of the Imperial Sector are incredibly polite and warmhearted, it would far from inaccurate to say a life-time of safety and luxury in this sector of the Cabal Empire has made a great deal of its residents naive and innocent to the tragedies of war or other forms of horror but even the elite of the Cabal uphold their own code of chivalry and behavior that exemplifies them-self as a model citizen that is both exemplary in loyalty but also positively exemplary in the mental and moral qualities that are distinctive to an individual.

Industrial Sector

No Caption Provided

The Industrial Sector is where the HELIOS STATION has positioned itself permanently, the space elevator delivers supplies up or down as well as people via its space elevator. The cities of the Industrial Sector specialize specifically in the production of equipment and other technological assets; they do this so well that 50% of all Cabal equipment whether it be ships, weapons and even droids are produced from the cities in the Industrial Sector.

Foreigners are all expected to visit the Industrial Sector first as its the only district in direct contact with HELIOS STATION, this district however differs pretty drastically in both the design and behavior of people. The aesthetic of the cities in the industrial sector are mostly cyberpunk esque and the inhabitants of this city have a more serious and moody demeanor in comparison to the other sectors, however partying in clubs and undergoing genetic or cybernetic enhancements is the norm here.

Onyx Sector

No Caption Provided

The Onyx Sector is were 75% of the Cabal Empire Military personnel reside, this sector has significant amounts of land dedicated to training and mobilizing regiments that are involved in the security and prospects of the Cabal.

Not only do most new recruits get transferred here but so do their families, one could say that the demeanor of this sector has many inhabitants being very strict and professional before foreigners or their superiors but also treating their peers like a family.

The architecture of this sector is very military-esque with many facilities being similar to domes or bunkers.

Elysium Sector

No Caption Provided

The Elysium Sector is the exact opposite of the Industrial Sector, Elysium produces roughly 50% of the produce and medicinal supplies of the Empire but are more happy going and traditional with conservative leaning values.

The inhabitants of the Elysium Sector spend most of their time indoors caring for the laboratory grown plants and underground hydroponic systems that provide consumables for the people on Mars, the architecture of this sector has many cities being placed inside naturally formed craters so the ground and levels of this sector are much steeper than any other.

Zion Sector

No Caption Provided

The Zion Sector is the only sector devoid of any organic life, this city is entirely full of true Artificial Intelligence. Close to 95% of all True A.I reside in the bounds of the city, what is done exactly in their cities is not public knowledge all that is known is that the Zion Sector was and is a right given to the A.I by the Royal Family in exchange for their allegiance to the Emperor or Empress.

Maria Sector

No Caption Provided

The Maria sector has no special purpose rather it serves as a historical sector containing many of the oldest buildings and assets of the Cabal Empire. The residents of the Maria Sector can be considered rather bland or average however they are quite knowledgeable on the history of the Empire and also do possess the largest amount of water in one of the Mega City's known as Odyssey where two artificial lakes of water give it a unique sight on Mars that can not be seen elsewhere.

Cerulan Territory

An area of Mars the size of North and South Korea combined that belongs to the Cerulan faction, the Cabal Empire has no authority here but are allies with Cerulan Galactic Regal Sector.

@cerulan/@mr__mercury/@sonnymoon

Will fill details of this area here.

Figureheads

Lord Saren

No Caption Provided

Lord Saren is the Governor of the Industrial Sector as well as Vice-Administrator of the C.E.S.B, he is one of the most important individuals in the entire Cabal Empire and one of the few that take a personal hands on approach when it comes to involving himself in tasks that benefit the interests of the Empire.

Supreme Commander Creed

No Caption Provided

Supreme Commander Creed is the greatest commander of the collective Cabal Empire military forces and serves actively as the Governor of the Zion Sector, with no grand war to wage the old Commander has taken a vacation inside the city and awaits the calling when the Empire may need him again to command the billions of war machines under the Cabal.

Commander Chroma

No Caption Provided
Commander Chroma is a relatively new governor in comparison to her peers as she's only helmed the Onyx Sector for one year, however Chroma is a very reputable individual and both admired as well as cherished by the public as being Governor and also leader of the Valkyrie Pilots.

Marra Saloks

No Caption Provided

Marra Saloks is the Adminstrator of the C.E.S.B and governor of sector Maria, she's the second most important figurehead in the Cabal Empire and second in line to the throne of the royal family. She can often be found in the C.E.S.B Headquarters located in sector Maria.

  • <<Elysium Sector Unoccupied Governor Slot>>
  • <<Imperial Sector under Tarra Saloks>>

Technology

The Cabal Empire come from a parallel universe where human technology advanced exponentially, by the year 2000 A.D they had already fully colonized Mars with hundreds of millions of people and had the industrial power to rival Earth and were at the same time expanding to other planets outside of the Solar System.

To the Cabal it is now 3020 A.D and from a technological standpoint are at-least a thousand years ahead of Earth in technological developments, most prototype technology and even theoretical technologies from Earth would have been long ago researched by the Cabal with even some forms of technology being considered archaic or outdated compared to what the Cabal presently have.

Some forms of technology, not all that the Cabal have are.

  • Reliable faster than light speed engines
  • Planetary scale automation
  • Advanced Genetic Manipulation
  • Advanced Cybernetics
  • Advanced Robotics
  • Advanced Terraforming
  • Advanced Agricultural farming
  • Advanced Shielding Technology
  • Advanced Teleportation
  • Advanced Gravity and Magnetism Manipulation
  • Advanced Railgun and Energy Weapon Research
  • Advanced Scanners and Theoretical Communication Research

Rules and OOC {IMPORTANT UPDATE

  • Request permission ooc if you want to cause any major damage (Building and above damage)
  • Request permission ooc to attempt to assassinate any named character
  • Don't no sell the defenses or sovereignty of the Cabal Empire please >.>
  • All technology/equipment/resources on Mars requires my permission or @mr__mercury's to use outside of the planet
  • You can become a citizen of the Empire if you want just PM me to work out the rules and details
  • May be subject to further edits in the future, please check op every now and then for changes >.>
  • You're free to come to Mars just don't try to sneak in or zip by with out alerting presence in character, I'm not going to bar people from coming to the planet but you can't just go to any sector you want. So please land on Helios get cleared then interact or wahtever as tourists.
  • The above applies to people who can fly in space too <.<
  • As of the moment the Cabal do NOT control the entire planet, they are the primary contestant of the planet and are moving forward to claiming the entirety of it
  • Cabal have current orbital superiority over the planet.

T'nah & El'lia
T'nah & El'lia

Escorting the Vespaindica operatives, a trio of Psi-Knights protected their minds from one of the visitors telepathy. El’lia Socat silently bristled at the mental veil the trio of Psi-Knights created. They were led through a dome structure that spiraled to Commander Chroma's quarters like a maze.

T’Nah was already certain the distress signal needed to be confronted, but Prince Vangelis, their freshly appointed ruler of the Vespaindica Complex sent the order down to ask the Cabal Empire for assistance. A playdate of sorts. T’nah and her Volta Squadr could have easily responded and taken care of the problem.

Once they arrived T'nah was formal, but short with the Commander, introducing her and El'lia then cutting to the point.

“We suspect a ship nearby is sending a wavering distress signal. It signals off and on throughout the day. Disappearing then reappearing. We suspect foul play. Prince Vangelis suggested we notify and extend the invitation to you to join us.” T'nah turned to El'lia giving her the floor.

A tiny silver ball escaped El'lia's fingers and hit the ground. TheJade Dragun sucked her teeth, knelt down and pinched the runaway ball between her thumb and index finger. “Sin should have just come here himself. I don’t know how to use his toys.” El’lia admitted, observing it through her ominous white eyes.

“He is here. That’s a part of him.” T’nah grinned and scrunched her nose. “Just squeeze it.”

El’lia squeezed the Sin nanite and it expanded. She instinctually loosened her pinch on it and it hovered mid-air, breaking laws of gravity. Painting an electronic red glow over their faces, a holographic star map projected from the tiny nanite.

Mars was digitally mapped as well as the cosmic distance the distress signal was from the red planet.

“What Prince Vangelis wanted us to ask is." El'lia stepped closer breaking into the holographic star map, appearing like a cosmic goddess that dwarfed the universe itself. "Would you be able to convoy with us to the coordinates? The Talmut attack halted our Kaphit-i shuttles and help from our allies would make this recon easier.”

T’nah rested her hands at her stomach and sighed out the words. “Yes. That.” the Spektra traded glances with the Psi-Knights silently flanking them.

@sonnymoon: It's been a year since the campaign for Mars had started, the allies of the Cabal were the key to the success of capturing and holding the planet from the advances of humanity and as a result the Queen of the Cabal was more than willing to keep relationships between both sides warm. All the Governors were instructed by the Queen herself to 'play' nice with their allies but truth be told they...well kept their distance, not to say they did anything to strain the relationship but the Cabal Empire had existed for a thousand years on their own in a losing war of attrition against a far more industrious foe than themselves.

Because of this many of the war era Governors who presently lead sectors of the Cabal Empire were unaccustomed to conducting joint exercises with any faction other than their own, this would truly be a first in the history of the Cabal. "Welcome, to my humble abode. I am Commander Chroma" Commander Chroma would declare respectfully as she greeted the Vespaindica operatives before gesturing to the Psi Knights to leave them, the Psi Knights were generally considered the strongest infantry units of the Cabal Empire but they served their purpose as an escort to safely bring her guests to the Valkyrie base on Mars however, Chroma wanted to show these operatives that not only did she trust them but that her own force of Valkyrie Pilots spread through out the base were of comparable reputation to the Psi Knights and more than capable of defending these two.

A pair of Vex Drones would activate from their charging stations in Chroma's room and deploy what could be described as a pair of hover chairs for the guests to sit in should they desire, then the Vex Drones would position themselves between Chroma as they awaited any further others to accommodate. After introducing herself Chroma would take a seat on her personal hover chair near by a futuristic looking desktop and listened intently to the message or rather invitation offered by the allies of the Cabal.

"Interesting proposition" Chroma would murmur and while her face was hidden between advanced alloys in a semi-power armored suit her physical gestures and body language easily gave away her genuine curiosity. "There actually has been some debate in the last few hours of which sub-division of our armed forces should investigate this phenomenon, the idea of a joint operation admittedly was never considered. I am rather flattered that.." Chroma gestured to the operates with her hand "you came to me instead of any other governor with this proposition"

Chroma tilted her chin up as she spoke in a reassuring tone "To clarify, we officials all serve the Queen and because we do, we constantly seek to prove ourselves. Which often leads to some debate, this has only gotten worst now during peace time" Chroma nodded her head "I eagerly accept this proposal from your Prince, however..." Chroma spoke more softly "may I know the names of you two admirable messengers?"

Chroma tilted her head slightly to the side "just a necessary technicality I need to record and catalog for my records.

El'lia Socat
El'lia Socat

“I’m El’lia Socat and this is T’nah Vao, an honor to finally meet our allies. ” the bald-headed woman, draped in jade cloak stepped forward to introduce the Cerulan duo. Bistre brown pupils abruptly replaced the bleak whites of her eyes as the Psi-Knights were relieved.

“I suspect this may be collateral damage from the Talmut attack, but physical confirmation seems best, Commander Chroma.” El'lia shared taking a seat.

“El’lia has feelings about these things, including approaching you for this jaunt.” T’nah chimed, coquettishly resting her arm on El’lia’s shoulder.

The Jade Dragun looked over her back, grinning at her friend. ”Nothing we can't handle.” She doted catching one another's tender glances .

"--So." T'nah smiled at the Valkyrie Commander. "It's just me, El'lia and nanite Sin on our side. Will you be going yourself or will other Valkyrie's be joining us?"

@sonnymoon:"Please the pleasure is all mine" Chroma would reply courteously as she gave a nod of respect to her guests, Chroma would then look towards what could be described as a keyboard type device and began 'typing' while observing the guests.

"Unfortunately I'm retired, Tarra Saloks has declared that in a time of peace that our senior personnel take a seat back and begin training the new generation of Cabal warriors and officers that are meant to succeed us" Chroma tilted her head slightly to the side while continuing.

"However, I have no intention of allowing our valuable allies to go unaccompanied. As we speak I am organizing a trio of Valkrie squadrons to accompany you, in mere minutes a roster totaling twenty seven pilots should be arriving to meet just outside the boarders of this base"

Chroma would look up after she finished typing and then gestured around the room "this room believe it or not is where I often command my pilots from. There is an issue of communication however, if we are going to form a joint operation we need to first agree on the method of communication between our forces before continuing" Chroma tapped the temple of her helmet and gave a question "would you be interested in joining a psionic link with the twenty seven pilots and I?"

Mai'bin Yacht
Mai'bin Yacht

It was unseen. Unheard, but T'nah and El'lia had a quick, tactical conversation among one another regarding this psionic link. "Yes. Link us." El'lia decided. "We can share the information we have garnered on the situation as well quicker this way." The Jade Dragun uploaded the memories, images and personal feelings on the discovered distress signal of both her and T'nah on their public psionic channel.

"Our Orba satellites have captured footage of the ship that sent the distress signal and the vessel is located on the outer ring of the galaxy." The Orba footage projected in hi-definition in Chroma's quarters from the tiny Sin bead. "Have you seen this design before? We have no aeroprop manufacturers that create this model."

T'nah walked the room, tenderly observing Chroma's furniture and decorations. "This can be an easy recon mission or turn into an ambush. What we do know is someone keeps pinging us for help. "

It had been some time since Blue and Pudge had 'escaped' Zomov's grasp. They had created some space between the situation with Zomov's followers and the attackers who destroyed the Test Ship by not completing the journey as stowaways on the attackers' ship and instead crash-landed on another planet. Given the attackers' beliefs and Zomov's goal, they were hoping they had landed on a Planet without another civilization. They soon discovered after their crash landing that the planet was heavily populated, so they chose the next best option for their scenario, they would try to create as much distance between the test ship incident and them.

Blue overheard of cargo ships leaving the planet and decided Pudge and himself would once again catch an uninvited ride on a ship. Pudge's ability to physically morph his body into different forms made it easy for him to sneak into even the most secure places. Blue, on the other hand, would have to time his move more carefully. He decided to dig underneath the ground to create a tunnel as close to the ship as possible. The plan was to dig as close as possible until Pudge gave him a sound letting him know he was close enough. Then Pudge would have to pay attention to the ship's crew to let Blue know when the perfect time was to come out from the ground.

The plan started once Pudge had already sneaked through morphing on to the ship. Once Blue saw that Pudge was safely on the cargo ship, he plunged right into the ground beneath him. Pudge's super hearing allowed for him to know where exactly Blue was digging below, and Blue's super hearing allowed for Pudge's quiet audio sound to ring through his ears notifying him that he had made it to his spot. Pudge took one last look around at the crew and then sent out the audio sound twice and Blue carefully dug himself out of his tunnel.

Once close enough, Blue jumped and clung onto the ship's frame and went overhead the crew without any of them noticing a single difference around them.

This whole process would operate completely backward when they unboarded their second getaway ride. The duo believed this second getaway ride was still not enough space between Zomov and them. They had to have completed this whole process at least 35 times by the time they both decided it was enough for the two of them. Cargo ship after cargo ship after cargo ship. For normal stowaways, this whole process would've been draining, to say the least, but the two of them were just happy to be free and to be together. What the two of them could figure out about their next and possibly the last destination was: People called the planet Mars and the ship they were currently on belonged to a race called Cerulean.

As soon as they had escaped the ship, they found material to cover themselves. The cloaks were the best they could do for themselves, given they knew nothing really about Mars. But given their short stature of around 3 feet and 7 inches and their body colors, the cloaks were severely inadequate for disguises. Blue and Pudge knew their calm demeanor wouldn't cause them to stick out, but their appearances would surely catch some unwanted attention eventually. They planned to leave the highly populated areas and find a more natural, less inhabited area as quickly as possible.

Vespaindica Complex, Voltup'tus Station

Cargo ships, shuttles and yacht's zipped up, under and over one another, following intricate math equations made for perfect and ultimately safe navigations. Below the forecasted aeronautical vectors, sentient life mixed, mingled and secretly mangled one another to reach their destinations. With 64 total docking bays their was bound to be a melange of scenarios to be unfolding or coming to a close. At docking bay 17, the scenario was just unfolding...

Nella & Fergisa
Nella & Fergisa

A 5'4 woman with a large ebony helmet on her head quietly circled her anxiety, finally dispersing it through her words. A language foreign to the Cerulan. Doualat. "I have a bad feeling about this now." Fergisa Mandis muttered to their Mai'bin Yacht Comandress, Nella Visette.

"We cannot turn back now, we are in the thick of it, Fergisa." the Comandress' raspy soprano voice streamed calm from her mouth.

"I feel alien and unaccounted for forces nearby. These forces may be the element to change Master Joss' fate and in turn....our own."

With a wan smile, Comandress Nella nodded then turned for the runway leading to the circular Volup'tus docking bay. "Hold steady, Fergisa." she said over her back. Fergisa followed Nella out the Mai'bin to meet the women that found them.

Outside on the circular docking bay, T'Nah and El'lia waited for their Supraspek team members to arrive. “That went longer than planned.” T'nah exhaled outstretching her right arm in the air, the slow, delayed flight made her joints tense.

El'lia wore an all-white outfit, with puffy white hood and cape to ward off Mars's harsh cold climate. “Well it turned into an even bigger surprise of events.”

"Not my problem for the next seven days. It's there's now." she looked up at the yellow Ashi-kaga Trxine shuttle humming down to carefully land on the crowded docking bay.

Mitsumine
Mitsumine

T’nah & El’lia shared a laugh as they were met with the Vespaindica Complex Supraspek Ops members Mitsumine and Jovian. A Japanese woman with Yakuza ties and a cybernetic love letter with diodes traced and spliced into her biological makeup. The young Brazilian man following her lead, faked his death after a deadly power mishap. Born anew as closely surveilled special ops members assimilating into the Cerulan society.

"Mitsu. Jovian?" T'nah's face lit up a smile spreading wide over her face. "You finally finished your Soma sessions. It's good to see you out."

"Get him into the Soma pods and get him scheduled for Psychia sessions." El'lia relayed to Mitsu.

"They want him held in our Supra compound?" her eyes blinked rapidly, computing rapid-fire solutions to the new development.

"I want him held in our Supra compound." T'nah underlined.

"Jovian, get in touch with the Psyhcia to get him set up. " Mitsumine delegated, holding eye contact with T'nah. Her computations factored down to three peaceful outcomes.

Distracted, absorbing the new images around him, Jovian stole glances at the captured man and the blue woman and her petite counterpart. The gravity-manipulator heard none of her words. His gaze was held hostage as he met eyes with the silent, pecan skinned space pirate: Pardus.

T'nah shook her head at the building silence Jovian created with his lack of reply. "We'll be setting up suites for these two women until their departure." T'nah pivoted the direction of the Mai'bin Yacht to depart, leaving purple Ashi-kaga Trxine to sit on the docking bay for later retrieval. It was being cleaned and repaired to restore to it's previous lustre prior their recon mission. "Reach out if you have anymore questions." she called back before the Mai'bin airlock closed behind the four women with a hiss.

The Mai'bin Yacht was heading to Ver'rima, the heavily-guarded outer rim of Prince Vangelis' royal quarters and the Ashik-aga Trxine's course charted for the Supraspek underground compound, burrowed 70 feet below. Surrounded by the toxic Mars percholate, the descent was potentially toxic to untreated and untested intruders.

@cerulan:

Both Pudge and Blue were ready to start the next chapter of their life having boarded the Cerulan cargo ship; they believed this would be their final stowaway adventure, but sadly they were too optimistic. The two waited for the cargo ship crew to leave, and they saw just how far off they were from reaching the true peace they sought out. The two experiments had managed to sneak onto the cargo ship and meet its destination only for them to be greeted by its landing place, a docking station for cargo ships, shuttles, and yachts. They quickly found scrap cloth in the cargo ship to cover themselves, but their makeshift cloaks were futile in covering their short stature and their body colors that popped like a watercolor painting.

Nonetheless, the two of them had no other solutions to make the situation better, so they continued onward towards their goal. Freedom. They just hoped they could stowaway on one last ship. Hoping this next ship would lead them away from populated areas. Right now, they believed that if they stayed in populated areas, it would only lead to questions, and given their recent history that would only lead to problems. They weren't naive in believing they could so easily escape Zomov's reputation just by proximity. They had jumped on foreign ship after foreign ship upwards of 35 times trying to be thorough in their true escape from Zomov's reputation and their purpose of being created in the first place.

They knew even now with their physical appearances they only had a matter of time getting on another ship. The first three docking bays had several possible ships to board, but they were being blocked by all types of ship personnel. As Blue moved forward to each next docking bay, pudge noticed the surrounding people's eyes beginning to draw towards the two short cloaked figures that kept stopping and moving quickly to the next docking bay.

They finally came up to docking bay 17, Blue took one look at the populated docking bay with three ships and multiple personnel and was ready to move on to the next one, but unknown to him Pudge had already made the decision. Pudge believed they had no more time left and this was possibly the last docking bay they would safely be able to survey before the surrounding people moved towards them. With the decision, he quickly acted by opening his mouth wide, and like a vacuum, Blue was swallowed into Pudge. First, the former specimen referred to as Experiment 9 didn't know what had happened and began to squirm around in the Pink Blob until Pudge made a verbal sound to calm Blue down.

Blue was upset, not knowing what Pudge was thinking as he began waddling his body. Blue began trying to find Pudge's mouth area to see and Pudge opened it, showing Blue that the two of them were heading towards docking bay 17.

Blue's voice sounded much like a growling animal trying to imitate human speaking. "We can't go here." Pudge made another audio reply telling Blue about the other people watching them. Blue was silent once again, processing the new information. He knew Pudge had made the right decision, but to him, this was the worst-case scenario. They were willingly waddling towards a busy docking bay and they really had no plan. "Drop here," Blue growled to Pudge. Without even thinking about it, Pudge walked to the edge of the docking bay's pathway and dropped off the side, and with perfect teamwork, Blue stuck his arm out of Pudge's mouth at just the right time to grab the side of the pathway. The two of them were hidden instantly from the surrounding people that Pudge had desperately tried to avoid.

Blue pulled his other arm out of Pudge so that both arms were free to do as he pleased. Just like the attacker's ship from the beginning of their escape, Blue began to use his claws and strength to guide the two of them underneath the structure and closer to the center of the docking bay. The two of them could hear the squadron above them conversing over details of what they were doing next.

And the two experiments agreed this was their only chance of getting on to one of the ships, while the squadron was distracted in conversation. They both knew that Pudge would easily be able to evade the group given his ability to morph his body any which way he felt like, but Blue's usual process for getting on the ship wouldn't work. So as the first ship took off, they waited. They would not be leaving on the Mai'bin yacht with multiple women, it seemed like too many people on the ship, for them to successfully evade until their destination. Given the fact that the two of them had already stood out, they couldn't wait for the purple ship's crew to come back, too many eyes had already been drawn towards them and they didn't want to stay on the docking station longer than they had to.

So, Pudge released Blue completely as Blue gripped onto the side of the docking bay. Meanwhile, Pudge already on the surface of the docking bay had morphed his body into a fine goo-like substance much like a puddle and began shifting himself underneath the ship itself until he could then move up one of the ship's legs that held it in place on the docking bay.

Then the specimen formerly referred to as Experiment 10, began moving upwards the leg and onto the undercarriage of the ship, waiting for the two individuals known as Mitsu and Jovian boarded the shuttle with their new 'friend'. Once they had boarded and began to lift off, all Blue would have to do was use his speed to get underneath the ship in time for Pudge to once again swallow him whole. The plan worked smoothly and the two creatures were once again happy as Blue held on to the frame of the ship but unknown to them, they weren't going to their paradise they so desperately sought.

@mr__mercury: LOL. Pudge has the ability to make it slimey or not. For things like Blue, it won't be, but if he swallows any enemy and wants them to be uncomfortable, then he might turn it up. Lol depends on if he likes you. Lol

Javíar Venegas aka Jovian
Javíar Venegas aka Jovian

The last Soma session nightmarishly haunts his waking memories. Flashes of the sky crashing and the Mars horizon imploding with solar bursts of yellows and oranges. His lungs seizing, capturing his screams for help anchoring the painful cost of his reality. He lost control. His power’s gravitational pull offset his own bearing on the ground. Pulling him closer to the cosmic collapse of the galaxy itself devouring Mars. Like a space vacuum. Devouring Javiar.

Transporting an elusive and deadly space pirate on their shuttle, wearied his nerves. The first task he gets sent on after his Soma training is escorting a martial and cerebral cosmic weapon. Stealing glances in the compact Ashik-aga felt more daunting than the open space of the Volup'tus docking bay. It felt like a trap, a way for Pardus to siphon the fear and anxiety in his heart via sheer eye contact. Not merely of Pardus, but fear of himself and social lack thereof. Mars felt alien. The Spektraops felt alien. The cold drone of their underground tunnel felt like an alien purgatory. Phantasmic.

He wanted to be Earthbound with his friends in Brasil; but the closest to Earthbound he could find at the Vespaindica complex was Soula, his grizzled American superior. His accent reminded him of the adventurous outlaws that wrecked havoc in the Bonanza tv show his father Silvano watched. The Mars surfaces were solid, only to shift and reveal gaping, pitch black holes hidden behind reinforced sliding hatches. Once Mitsu steered the ship into one dropping deeper into Mars, she flipped on the radio, playing Tokyo FM. They spoke Japanese, so Javiar only followed the melodies and rhythm. The darkness of the 9,345 foot drop unsettled him. It was a 5 minute drone of darkness, barring the high beam lights of the shuttle. Orba drones worked disturbingly fine in the darkness, emerging only under the shuttle lights, etching pockets to install electrical systems climbing the pit to eventually provide light.

Mitsumine steered the shuttle to the 6th apron, finally illuminated with electrical lights to guide the route to the holding hangar. "What times are his Psychia sessions?" Mitsu asked abruptly shutting the radio off and landing the shuttle in the bay to a silent halt. The electrical engines whirred to a rising silence. The Exiled Ane-san marched past Javiar with Pardus being poked and prod forward off the Ashik-aga. His lack of answer gave her the answer she needed. "Go there in person and get it done." Without turning to meet eyes or halt her escort of Pardus, she exited the shuttle closing it behind her. Her Qix boot heels clicked in the background before the hangar bay door opened and closed.

Alone looking out the shuttle, Javiar saw a pink orb out the ship's panoramic windshield. He blinked and it vanished from his sight as swift as it appeared. The unclear reality of what he saw creeped him out, forcing him to move from his seat and out the ship. Jamming his finger on the hatch button too many times as if that made the drop door open any faster. It didn't. Once the door opened he shamelessly sprinted knowing the surveillance cameras would document his paranoid behavior. He sped walked to the Psychia section, eyes glancing back and forth over his shoulders and straight ahead. Hoping the haunting pink apparition wouldn't emerge once again. This was hell.

@cerulan:

The whole journey was beginning to wear on Blue; The happiness they sought was looking more like an evading dream they would never be able to capture rather than a reachable goal. As they hovered above the Planet crust, Blue's strands of fur began to stiffen up, ready to bail before a collision between the ship and planet happened, making the two of them nothing more than "air-kill". But he never had to make the jump off the yellow shuttle ship; because the planet's crust opened and began to open up and reveal a dark abyss beneath them as they descended.

Once their descent began, Blue wish they had jumped off, but once that abyss was underneath them, they had no choice, but to stay as they were. Truth is neither of them knew how deep the abyss exactly was; Sure, they'd probably absorb the fall in Pudge, but the fall into what. They had no idea where they were descending to, and what lied beneath the planet's crust.

The trips before the docking station didn't exactly bother Blue, because they all just seemed like steps towards their goal, but since the docking station Blue was beginning to feel like they were taking steps towards their goal, but digging themselves deeper into a hole, and if Pudge and he weren't careful all their hard work would be in vain.

Blue was so caught up in all of this, that it wasn't until Pudge made a sound in awe that he looked around him. The shuttle's lights were shining down on machines working throughout the abyss without a care in the world whether they had light to see or not.

After some more time, Blue saw lights other than the shuttle's own, they were getting close to something. He looked over at Pudge and gave him a serious look as if to say that it was time for them to be serious once again. The ship once again landed in a docking area, and the two creatures waited in silence for the crew to leave the ship, and then the two of them would figure out what needed to be the next steps like figuring out where in the hell they were.

Once Pudge saw the lady escorting the man that was traded between the two crews earlier, he mistakingly believed that the coast was clear and started to move off the ship. Blue abruptly grabbed Pudge's still solid-state body and pulled him back to their hiding spot, hoping the pink blob hadn't been seen by the remaining crew member. Pudge looked back at Blue, not knowing why he was grabbed in the first place. Blue looked at him and them just up one of his fingers and then pointed towards the ship. Pudge knew his mistake instantly and like a child who knows they had done something bad, his body language showed his own upset in himself. Blue, who was frustrated just moments ago about their journey, could not allow himself to scorn Pudge, instead, the Blue Creature softly patted the Pink Blob. As if to say, it's okay, we just move forward as we have done many times before.

Blue was hoping that the last crew member hadn't seen Pudge, but when he heard the shuttle door open and the Crewman dead sprinting away from the ship, he feared that they were spotted. IF they were spotted, then no doubt, the crewman was running to tell someone of the stowaways. Once Blue had processed all of this, he jumped off the bottom of the ship and began charging after the man, hoping that they could at the very least stop him from telling someone with reasoning, but the very most having to incapacitate him, so he couldn't tell anyone. Pudge saw Blue jump off and take off, instinctually Pudge followed him. Where Blue was charging on all fours much like a 3.5 ft cheetah in motion, meanwhile Pudge was waddling with impressive speed similar to a humanoid. There was no doubt the security in this place would eventually detect them one way or another, but that hadn't crossed their minds. Blue was just hoping to catch the man. Once Blue caught sight of their target slowing down in speed to a brisk walk rather than a dead sprint, he too slowed down much like a predator stalking his prey, and like a domino effect, Pudge did the same. Once Pudge processed the likelihood of the two creature sticking out, he completely morphed once again to a puddle like substance and began following Blue, but moving more in the shadows of their foreign environment, trying not to be seen by anyone.

Safe in the Psychia suite, Javí scheduled Pardus' session with the sole Psychia, Geness. He lingered in the suite longer than he should have reading a Redelan & Sonnet magazine of new content their Mi'Bith artist were producing. Hallucinating or not he felt someone, something watching him. A pink creature. Geness took notice of his lingering and poked for the underlying reason to his loitering.

"How are you adjusting Javiar?" she said leaning over her crystal desk. “I can fit you in for a cursory session. I don’t have my usual traffic of patients on this...in this location.”

“Maybe ‘nother time. I’m kind of tired.” he closed the R&S magazine, rising from his cozy smart bubble lobby seat.

“Javiar, I can send up the transits of your sessions, but it won’t get you relocated.” Her golden eyes were suspended on his. "Your situation is a special one. One we need to handle with delicate care."

Javi forcefully tossed the R&S magazine on the crystal end table with a slide, like it was a piece of garbage. "Going to my quarters, Geness. Tchau."

Her mouth moved to speak more but she only got out a: "Goodbye Javier" before he was out the glass airlock door.

He only got about 8 paces before he saw a large puddle on the cold, hard metallic floor. He stopped. Froze. His heart dropped to his stomach and the hairs on his neck stood prone. Um aliengena vai me matara, he thought, nao olhe para cima... He looked up at the ceiling to meet eyes with the creature....

Blue realized while chasing the crew member that charging through the halls would surely draw attention, so he decided instead to use his claws to scour the walls and then the ceiling to chase after the man. It would be a slower method of tracking him, possibly even losing the man in his line of vision, but luckily he could rely on his highly capable ears and nose to track down the target.

Pudge had luckily already thought about the possible witnesses to their hunt and morphed into the puddle. He slowly and safely followed Blue until they could get within arms reach of the man, but just as it felt like Blue was closing in on him, he stopped in his tracks. Blue looked down at the puddle of Pudge and Pudge back at him. Blue waited, but Pudge, on the other hand, wanted to continue through the doorway to capture their target. Pudge began flowing towards the doorway; Blue let out a low growl telling him to stop. Pudge stopped even though their plans of action disagreed. Blue could sense that their target wasn't alone and wanted to wait it out to deal with the problem once they knew more, but Pudge believed the time to deal with it was now before anything else could happen. The disagreement was a big one that their peace and journey could depend on, but Pudge set that aside to once again align himself with Blue.

Shortly after, the man came out of the doorway with a worried look on his face. Pudge being right at the man's feet could see it clear as day, that this man seemed more worried about something than someone ready to attack them.

Pudge slowly morphed a part of the puddle to point towards the ceiling where Blue was above their heads. Blue could also see the man's face of scared for his life, so Blue decided to put his index finger up to his snout and mouth and make a soft shush noise, it was a thing that Pudge and him had seen on their countless trips when crewmembers wanted to pull each other to the side to talk or even if they believed one of them was being too loud.

Blue had decided to try to reason with the man given the scared look on his face, Blue felt no need to threaten him. The only question was would the creatures' body movements and sound exacerbate the situation or would it be the doorway to open up some sort of communication between the two parties.

An outer body experience is what it was. Knowingly frozen. Knowingly in the crosshairs of alien creatures. Did they escape their holding lab? Black matter swirled in Javiar’s hands and he snapped out his terrified trance. He closed the portal of energy with a snap of his fist. “What do you want?” Javiar scoffed. His fear and sense of urgency dissolved. This all felt like a drawn out nightmare. He spent most of his time here sleeping through it. Doing whatever mundane task Mitsumine or Soula summoned him out his quarters for.

In this moment he decided to poke the bear, or in this case the devil. Or at minimum one the devil’s hellspawn he sent to terrorize him. “Ok, do your worst.”he taunted, waiting for the creatures to attack and give him a reason to use his power in self-defense or just flat out die. Either one.

Blue began to speak in the Cerulean language; Pudge and he had picked up on the cargo ship coming to Mars. His voice could be very off-putting to someone not as galactically experienced as the two creatures from their multiple stowaway ventures. It was as if there was a constant growl as he spoke, unknown to anyone if this would ever go away, or if it was a possible side effect from whatever animalistic gene-splicing Zomov had done to create Experiment 9.

"We...come...in...." Suddenly Blue realized he hadn't figured out the Cerulean word for peace. He began using different languages to try to see if one of the languages' words for peace got the job done. As he constantly stumbled over language after language, Pudge had seen the Black Swirl inside their possible new friend's hands. His eyes began to light up with wonderment as he snapped out of the Puddle and into full chubby usual form. When the swirl vanished, it was like Pudge snapped out of a trance. Blinking multiple times, looking around before going back into his puddle form.

The man spoke to them in a foreign language, which neither one of them understood, only further causing Blue to become frustrated trying to find a language. He was trying over and over to mean that they weren't trying to harm the man, so Pudge a much less lingual being decided to use action to explain to the man. A part of his puddle morphed into a solid chubby hand and reached for the man's hand to handshake it.

"We...come...in...."

No Caption Provided

Javiar craned his head back and pout at the delayed and seemingly incomplete sentence the creature growled at him. Did these two escape from those illegal species holding cell."...peace?"The pinkorb he thought was on the ship was real. Hesitantly shaking the shape-shifted pink hand he chuckled. A bright smile displayed shifting his usual dry visage. The hyperreal hand juxtaposed to the orb's simple shape teetered on bizarre Dali surrealism.

"Where did you come from?" his tenor voice projected loud throughout the silent, metallic corridor. He switched to Ceru, matching the language they seemed more comfortable with. Geness was short paces away in her work suite. Her office lights effused into the dark corridor. Lowering his voice he resumed questioning "The space pirates?" he speculated, forming a hypothesis on the pink & blue duo's intentions. "You came with them?" If they truly came in peace, if he translated their attempt properly, Javiar decided to peacefully interrogate information out of them. The three couldn't continue talking this candidly in the public corridor, they needed privacy. "Hold on." he raised his index finger and turned, walking back into the Psychia suite. A short moment later, he walked out carrying a chilled, 2 liter plastic bottle of iso-electrolyte apple juice. With a loud splash and gurgle, the bottle was emptied leaving a puddle of juice on the floor. "You do that thing in here" he proffered the bottle. "And you...." The Blue creature didn't showcase any shapeshift abilities. Smuggling him into his private quarters posed a more difficult resolution. "You're my pet....I got from the shelter drop-off by the station." Javiar knelt down and outreached his arms for the alien to hop in his arms to be cradled to his room. Javiar sneaking a pet would fare better than, smuggling fully conscious, unregistered aliens.

@cerulan: The man finished Blue's rambling of languages by completing his original sentence with a Cerulan word that the two experiments could only assume meant "peace." by the shaking of Pudge's morphed realistic hand and a chuckle following it from their possible new friend.

With each word of another language, the two experiments became more comfortable with it, not only because of their young age, but this was also part of Zomov's doing when creating the experiments.

"Where did you come from?" The man asked them.

Blue looked around them, once again checking their surroundings, he was worried the loud question was sure to draw some attention, but from what he could see it hadn't. As he finished looking around, he realized he was unsure how to answer the question, did the man mean where did Pudge and he come from originally, or most recently. Blue chose to answer the latter, "We came on the ship from the place all the ships rested." His piecing together of the language was rough, but as the conversation continued it would quickly come together as though it was his language.

Blue was unsure what the man meant by Space pirates, he understood the words and the meaning, more so he was stuck on the fact if the original people they boarded to get to the docking station were space pirates, and from everything Blue and Pudge had seen they weren't, so he quickly responded with, "No."

Pudge and Blue waited as the man seemed to have put their conversation on hold, he came back moments later with a container of some sorts, motioning and claiming for Pudge to get inside. The two creatures looked at each other before Pudge began to ooze into the bottle, both of the experiments knew they would have to trust the man for him to trust them. Pudge's shapeshifting abilities made easy work conforming to the bottle's structure.

The man then motioned for Blue to jump into his arms, Blue had made out the word "pet." before jumping straight into the man's arms without even allowing him to finish his sentence. He understood what the man planned to accomplish and just like Pudge, he too would have to follow along with whatever the man had in store.

The two experiments were trusting, but not more than they had to be, Pudge could easily force his way out of the containment of the bottle and Blue's super strength could rip himself away from the man if things were to go south.

Relieved the aliens cooperated with his plan, Javiar headed for his private quarters. Taking an unorthodox shortcut Javi decided to cut through one of the four Vespa greenhouse tunnels. Ceiling-paneled artificial lights fed the plants life as mists of water beaded their stems and leaves for nourishment. In the distance the Mars Misfit spotted two Greenhouse workers. He slowed his pace, hid behind a bushel of plants and listened to the murmurs of an unknown language. All he could decipher was: "Prince Vangelis"

Peeking once more to steal a look at the people having the encrypted conversation, Javi lost sight of the workers. He looked down at Blue with a confused expression on his newly misted face. "Did you translate any of that?" the smuggler stepped out the cover of misted bushes. With his eyes peeled, he cautiously navigated the rest of the Greenhouse tunnel. He plucked various fruits and veggies from passing trees then placed them around Blue's arm cradle. "Don't move" Covertly exiting the eastern side of the Greenhouse, the trio entered the metallic corridors stemming through the members living quarters.

Once Javi safely smuggled the two into his room he exhaled out his stress and braced his weight against his cold wall. He caught his breath and let the two aliens free from their respective positions. Picking up the fruits and veggies that scattered from Blue's release, he resumed his interrogation. "What are you two doing here and where are you trying to go?" After placing the assorted fruits and veggies in a silver kitchen bowl he headed for his sunken living room. The floor to ceiling window broadcast a hyperreal live feed of the Sao Paulo cityscape. He crashed onto his couch glumly staring at the distant, but familiar Brazilian view.

Pudge slipping into the bottle didn't stop his curious self from looking around the greenhouse short cut. Like a young child, he found beauty in the simplest things, even more so than Blue. If this whole situation could be solved, and this man turned into more of an ally than a threat, then this was surely a spot Pudge would want to revisit.

Blue, on the other hand, was more focused on the task at hand. He tried to decipher what the workers were speaking of, but he was still falling short in the language. He shook his head to let the man know this, and then next you knew he was being covered in fruits and vegetables. Blue's body began to blend in with the items being placed on top of him. Camouflage must have been another thing Zomov put inside his biology while creating him. Blue remembered them testing this, but on a smaller scale, he wasn't sure the extent of the ability, but he was completely invisible around the fruits and vegetables.

As soon as they made it to the room, the difference between the two experiments began to shine again. Blue zoned in on the man, just as the man zoned back on Blue. "What are you two doing here and where are you trying to go?"

"Looking for Home." Blue said as he made his hand into binoculars and then made an elementary motion of a house.

Pudge, meanwhile began looking throughout the room like a nosey child trying to find a toy. Touching everything in sight without hesitation. He then zoned in on the Sao Paulo city scape. It was so beautiful to him like a giant version of the greenhouse he looked at earlier, but the greenhouse couldn't compare. He then turned towards Blue and pointed at the window broadcast and made a sound to call the place their home. He wanted to go to somewhere like this, they had to make it there.

Blue moved towards the screen, took in the city for a moment, before turning towards the man, he pointed towards the screen, and said, "Where?"

“Sao Paulo. I lived here. But I can’t go back right now. I have to lay low for a while and...” his mind traced off to the distance and absence of communication with friends and family. An incurable loneliness haunted the Vespaindica Complex that signaled itself through every new Vespa face he grew familiar with. Secretly mental images of what his mother, father, Ferdinand and Liya looked like began to fade. He would never share that out loud. It terrified him. “You can’t go there right now. Or anywhere on Earth if you don’t want to be found by the people youre running from. ”

“Who are you running from?” Javiar looked around the room as if these people were watching them. He grabbed his acoustic guitar, sat back on the couch and rested his bare feet on the glass edge of the coffee table. He strummed quick and somber riffs from a Phryigian scale, waiting for the two aliens to explain. Strumming relaxed him.

@cerulan:

"Sao Paulo" Blue repeated after the man under his breath. Pudge had returned staring at the cityscape. It was truly beautiful, it seemed peaceful like it carried the peace that the two experiments so desperately searched for since their original escape. It was uplifting like maybe all this mess wasn't for nothing. That feeling dispersed quickly for both the experiments, when the man said, "You can't go there right now." Blue then repeated the word Earth back once again, he didn't want to forget that name or Sao Paulo, he would get Pudge and him there if it was the last thing he ever did.

"Who are you running from?" Pudge and Blue looked at each other, both asking each other if they should tell the mysterious man. After, no objections came from either of them, simultaneously they began answering the question in their own way. Blue began walking over to their now guitar holding ally. He planted his butt right on the couch, watching as Pudge in front of them began morphing his body to answer the question.

It was actually amazing, because although Blue's speech was still limited by translating, Pudge's body would supply context clues. "Pudge" He pointed at the Pink blob who was at the moment standing upright almost proud, "and me," Blue now pointed at himself and Pudge morphed his body like a giant pink arrow pointing at Blue, "were created by a man and his team." Blue and Pudge were smart enough not to just openly tell the man what for, without being questioned more thoroughly about why. "We soon escaped after that in hopes of finding a home, like Sao Paulo. The men who created us are the reason we are running, they are bad people, and we want to be left alone." Blue hopped up from the couch back to a now normal blob Pudge. They put each put an arm around the other, "Will you please, help us find us a home?"

"Will you please, help us find us a home?"

The accent was alien, but the words were familiar. A leaking thought that pooled persistent in his mind since his arrival. These two were runaways, running away from malevolent people from the sound of it. “Pudge.” his eyes traced over the two. “Blue. I cannot even make a promise to myself to find that. ”

"I have a feeling I have to want a new home to get out of here. Bring my family there. Here." he toggled buttons on his remote and the image of Sao Paolo faded and pixelized a hyperreal image of a skyscaper-littered city sprinkled with electric, colorful lights. "Mi'Bith."

Javi never set foot in the city, but he knew it was located on Earth and shrouded in advanced Cerulan technology that made it untraceable to humans. Aggregating bits and pieces of what Mi'Bith was like via his Vespa superiors conversations, Javi concluded it was a new world, a fresh world for him to create a new life and identity. One away from the Cerulan's rough Mars colony. A four digit tone pinged in his ear followed with a contralto voice.

--z--Jovian. We have a visitor that needs escorting. The Wata-dai Corp Prince, Shinji Tsukazaki. Last time I saw him I had claws centimeters from scratching out his eyeballs. Meet him at docking within 15 minutes. He has an entourage. Don't let them rattle you. He'll smell it on you.--z--

The young recruit was overwhelmed with the sudden duty colliding with his current smuggling, as if Mitsu's voice in his ear had an extension of acoustic tracing to etch out the alien figures in the room with him. "Leaving to meet him now." Javi pocketed a small cowboy figurine into his strap bag and marched for the door as a blip sounded in his ear indicating Mitsu left the comm. He backpedaled to face B&P. “Mitsu summoned me, but stay in here and you’re safe--I’ll be back!”

Praying through space to Cristo, Javi requested protection and goodwill on B&P's behavior and the trajectory of his building intentions. He left Blue and Pudge alone in his quarters to meet Shinji Tsukazaki at docking.
