@soif said:

Rarely did the space goddess leave the World Terminus, but the state of her “reality” deemed it so; Y-intercept was once again moving throughout the universe, via her Universal Spirit; causing havoc and killing those she remembered from her first life. Y intercept was the reason, the last SOIF was replaced; her sporadic reality jumps cost the lives of thousands.

On top of pursuing the Flower of Carnage, war talks were on the horizon in the Omega System. With everything coming to a head in her life, the Celestial Sha; contemplated interfering directly to handle Y intercept.“I can’t help but think, I would’ve fared better in the corp” she whispered, seemingly stressed.

Not too long ago, she belonged to a celestial organization, an organization bent on maintaining order; the Reality conflict ended that; and with a few…personal reasons; she left to become a SOIF. A decision she was now regretting.

Pierce Estate - Barrett Island, California

Wilhelm - "Ian, there has been another breach detected, but unlike the previous three this one does not have it's endpoint on Earth. The energy signature does not match directly with anyone on file but does correlate to a single existing profile with an extremely high degree of certainty as to relation, especially when you take into account the breach has been detected in the Omega System."

Due to the intertwined nature of Willhem and himself there was no need to ask for any kind of file or display to be be called up, the two had been bonded for so long most requests could be predicted and the matching profile was called up in his mind as if it were directly in front of him.

Ian - "What the hell.....Shorty? (pronounced Sha-ty)"

Why would she be here, this specific reality of all places? It would be nice to say she came to see me, but it's not like we left one another under the best of circumstances.

Ian - "Tell Nicole to order in for dinner and that I will be away for a while, and under any circumstances do not let her cook again. My kitchen may not survive another attempt."

Without even waiting for a response Ian rose from his chair and executed a spacefold to investigate what could very well become a complicated and awkward reunion. While it was his mandate to monitor and intervene if needed in the case of a reality breach, this was no stranger from a strange land. These two had history and based on how it ended he was not sure what kind of reception he had waiting for him.

Magnum Opus Space Station

Materializing within the station proper, Armistice dropped his full spectrum stealth announcing his presence as to not arouse suspicion or cause alarm. While on Earth he was no more than a ghost, that did not apply in other sections of this reality as in some he was not only known but recognized for his position. The OSA being made up of advanced species had attracted the wrong kind of attention and cross-reality conflicts had reached their doorstep in the past that had forced his direct involvement as well as the revealing of the Exemplars as a whole. His status allowed him unimpeded entry to the station within reason but he knew his very presence made the powers that be very nervous at some level. They had all seen what only a small group of Exemplars were capable of and viewed him with an expected amount of caution because of it. Ian did not blame them in the slightest, he would feel no different were he in their position.

@armistice:

"Is it foolish for me to have expected a simple hello?"

Sam didn’t bother to address him directly, given their history; her aggression was justified. Their “good” times were filled with abundance of trips and intimate pleasures; whilst traveling the cosmos. He was hard to crack, extracting personal information; was like breaking into a safe. He was her everything, but quite often her true value seemed to be less than his duty. Their bad times were frustrating, when work came calling he left; when work ordered him on an assignment; he left.

“Is it foolish of me to have expected a simple hello?” She said, finally turning to him. “Everything has to be formal and borderline militant with you doesn’t it?” Letting off a chuckle more so, of disbelief; she stood to greet him.

“I did not appear here, with the intentions of drawing you here; I came because a series of events that relate to me and my domain call me here” The red gem positioned between her eye’s began to glow, instantly updating him on the potential threat resting in the Omega System.

“Work has separated you from life, beloved” she moved close, as much aggression as she felt for him; there was no way she could allow this brief moment of conversation to pass. It’d been years since they last saw each other; it’d probably be years before they saw each other again. The proximity of their bodies, each being claimed by their respective domains and titles; heighten her emotions just a bit, reminding her of a lost time.

“You are well yes?”

The tall emerald warrior walked into the Eye Candy Lounge, while she stood tall, her eyes showed that she was exhausted. A long day maybe? Or perhaps a fight that went on longer than expected? It was always hard to tell with Crattian's. Sitting at an empty table she could see eyes from every corner of the room look over at her. They knew who she was, Zafirah Bo'Kara, the half Crattian, half Ninjan warrior. No one ever really spoke of her, but people seemed to have known her. Not because of her strength or ways in battle, but because of her tainted blood. Half breeds were always frowned upon, specially with Crattian's.

"What can I get you?" A slim Ninjan walked up to her table, leaning against the empty chair in front of the crimson haired woman.

"Jucca with no ice." she ordered, jucca was basically like the Crattian's version of 'soda' on Earth.

As the Ninjan walked away a fellow Crattian slipped into the seat in front of her, his dark blue eyes looking at her with curiosity.

"So you're Zafirah." He spoke with a sly grin. "I pictured you... taller." When Zafirah didn't say anything back, the Crattian leaned back in his seat letting out a heavy sigh. "Where you heading? Mars? Ninjeta?"

"Earth." Zafirah finally spoke looking up at the man with annoyance in her eyes.

"Earth?" A rubble roar of laughter came from him. "What's on Earth?"

"Warriors." Zafirah spoke with a sharp grin.

@zafirah_bokara:

“The Ninjan Queen has returned” A news bulletin flashed across the courtyards television screens. Madison’s ship had run out of fuel in the middle of the Sol system; after briefly being involved in a conflict right outside Mars; she was picked up by Talabethian Missionaries.

The Young Queen stormed through the park, flanked by a squadron of imperial guards. The determination in her walk kept the envious at bay. In the deeper areas of the Omega System; the colonies that once belonged to the Thresh Republic were wiped out. All evidence of the attack pointed towards the nomadic Machine Empire. Talks of the Machine Empire already invading Moss; brought widespread hysteria into the station.

The imminent threat of the machines on Xiox and MOSS was; enough for Ziccarra to mobilize the full Ninjan Army.

@madison_maynard:

Having taken his mother's advice to heart, Leonel sought out Madison, having not seen her since he'd flown her to her homeworld. Though as he sped through the blackness of space, the whipping tail of the rufescent cone of plasma all about him the most prominent form of scintillation in the encompassing darkness, Leonel came to realize that locating Madison would prove somewhat laborious. He was heading for an entire planet after all, with no familiarity with it's geography nor the native tongue of it's inhabitants. He'd have to exercise his superhuman speed to traverse the entire celestial body's face or perhaps not. As the sight of a distant star met his azure gaze, the Modern Man smiled, recognizing it's radio-wave emissions.

This was the planetary system belonging to Xiox, Madison's native world. Recalling their last encounter and her advice that he instead enter the Magnum Opus space station and ask for her, assuring him that a translator of some sort would be present, the New God instead set foot inside the gargantuan space station.

@azure_son:

Since returning to MOSS many people suggest she mobilized the Ninjan Fleet and set a course for Earth—a direct retaliation for being imprisoned for so long. She contemplated it, even after her savior; and Earth boy named Leo asked her not to. From a strategic standpoint; there was no need, in her absence the economy had only gotten better, and for the first time in 300 years; there was no talk of war.

The verdant colored queen moved through the interior of the space station watching the plethora of races live their lives.

“Your highness!” a guard screamed, dropping to one knee at her feet. “Yes what is it?” She asked, realizing this same soldier came to her with “urgent” matters nearly every day. “Someone has…well...-he flew here to see you. He doesn’t have a ship” his explanation provided Madison with what she needed to identify the man. “Leonel” She whispered, crafting a smirk that suggested she was impressed.

Heading to the main wing; she fixed her hair in preparation for meeting him. “Leo” She said, with a vibrant verdant smile. “You couldn’t resist huh” she reference from before his doubt in being able to make it all the way to the Omega System.

“What brings you here?”

@madison_maynard:

Instructed to wait for Madison's emergence, Leonel occupied himself by mildly observing the interior design and unorthodox architecture of the space station. It was unlike anything he'd seen before. Truly extraterrestrial. His azure eyes shone with boyish wonderment as he gazed all about, hands politely clasped behind his back while he occasionally offered amicable smiles and greeting "Hi's" to some of those who strolled by him. Turning towards the sound of Madison's voice, the New God met the Emerald Amazon's welcoming smile with a lively one of his own, "Madison", he paused, "You look great", he remarked, certainly much better than when he had just freed her from imprisonment on Earth.

Answering her question, he affably met her eyes, "You", he continued. "I thought about you from time to time and decided to come check up on you. See how you were doing. And just.. catch up. How've you been?".

@azure_son: "I've been well thanks to you" she said nodding her guards away. "when I returned so many people wanted war with Earth, but I remembered what you said" she explained escorting him through the main wing of the station. 

As the queen and her visitor moved through the corridors the eyes of the different races rest upon them. "You're the first visitor I got that's not a suitor" she said moving him toward her imperial palace.

"This is my home, well home away from home" she corrected.  Madisons actual hone rest on the planet Xiox, but because she was obligated to diplomatic responsibilities;  she was expected to maintain a room here. "How are things back on earth? Did you ever find your sister"

@madison_maynard:

"I'm glad you remembered then. It would have been awkward being friends with someone wanting to destroy Earth. Even more awkward explaining to everyone that I'm the one who freed her hehe", he joked, a soft laugh accompanying his harmless jest as she escorted him throughout the station's grandiloquent corridors. Taking in the sheer physical dimensions of their imperial encompassment, Leonel's attention was immediately captured by the word 'suitor'. Quickly meeting Madison's gaze with an expression of surprise briefly overtaking both his eyes and features, Leonel paused, "Suitors?", his heart skipped a beat for a moment as they continued their stroll through the palace.

"Huh. Anybody worth your time?", he inquired, not wanting to seem odd for his succinct pause. "Everything on Earth is fine. For now. I'm working on starting a team of capable individuals to maintain global peace. And I did find my sister", he smiled. "I'm flattered you remembered that", he pointed out, recalling that he had told her much since they last spoke. "She's doing well. And so am I now that I know she's safe. So what's it like being a queen?".

@azure_son: Madison sent him a cordial smile before answering his question with her usual sass. "Not at the moment, besides if I did he'd be right here"  entering the courtyard, she alerted him to the intricates of ninjan decor.

"I'm glad you found her because you seemed a bit distressed last time;  of course then I didn't know you that well. I also think that a team of protectors with you in charge will be of some use for that forsaken rock"

She didn't have anything nice to say about earth after being imprisoned for nearly a year, her entire impression of Earth changed.

"It's being the mother to millions of little children,  it gets hard at times but it's never nothing I can't handle. I'm not the only queen on the station either so I sort of have help. ..Atleast here anyways."

Propping herself up against a statue of herself in a cocky manner, she shifted the course of conversation to him.

"Does your mother know you're all the way out here? And I must say I'm flattered you came all this way for me...twice"

@madison_maynard:

Meeting her sassy retort with one of subtle but personable flirtation, he cast a quick, teasing wink, "I am right here", he remarked before allowing a soft, engaging laugh to escape his archangelic person. Setting foot inside the magniloquent courtyard, Leonel took in the engrossing sight of imperial Ninjan decor with evident wonderment. All the while remaining attentive to Madison's words. "I'm glad I found her as well. I don't think I'd have come to see you had I not found her", he paused, realizing that he wouldn't have been there for two reasons. One, he would have been far too distressed and preoccupied with locating Catalina. And two, it was Catalina who first convinced him to traverse the cosmos to visit the Ninjan Queen.

"Which makes me even gladder I did find her", Leonel paused, turning to meet Madison's gaze with a gentle smile of charismatic affability. He opted against commenting on her less than stellar opinion of Earth, after all it was a planet where she had been abruptly imprisoned and abused by a racial extremist. "I think so too. And it won't just be for maintaining peace. It'll also be to make sure people from other planets aren't wrongfully imprisoned, and to free those that have been", she was the clear inspiration behind those particular objectives. "Good, at least you're getting some kind of help. And I'm sure your people appreciate you. I know I would since you decided not to destroy Xiox's economy by funding and using your resources for a war against an entire planet", he jested harmlessly, mildly nudging her arm.

His relaxed sense of humor enabled him to joke about her previous hypothetical invasion of Earth. "Yes, she does", he smiled, recalling that it was Ziccarra who following Catalina, advised that he seek Madison out. "Why wouldn't I?", he playfully inquired, his smile curling at the edges as he took a subtle step forward, smoothly eliminating the distance between them as his gaze locked on hers and his head was tilted subtly to the side in wordless flirtation. "After all, a queen should be treated like a queen, right?".

@azure_son: Madison involuntarily let loose a sheepish chuckle, the thought of him "ensuring aliens wouldn't be wrongfully imprisoned" seemed more or less like a gambit he employed to garner some respect. "I have to be honest with you, I think you added that alien bit just because you're standing in front of one" she said with a genuine wink. "But yes, you are standing right here; breaking the monotony of my day might I add." by now the eyes of her imperial guards flooded the courtyard, the thought of their queen courting an alien surprised some, but disgusted most.

"Not every queen likes to be treated as such" her cocky voice calmed to a whisper as the sapphire eyed champion penetrated her personal space. "I've been a queen since I was 60 years old, which...is young; I'd like to be treated like...a woman just for once" she said, peering into his forever blues eyes.

"But I can't because my responsibilities require me to be a queen; luckily for you Terran for the most part is in a system of it's own. The only thing the earthlings have to worry about are themselves."

@madison_maynard:

That it could have been interpreted that he added the 'alien bit' simply because Madison was there hadn't occurred to him, but in the spirit of amicable flirtation, he responded in kind with a wink of his own, "Maybe". The disapproving gazes of the encompassing imperial guards didn't garner any reaction from him. Having spent the majority of his life as a soldier and leader, occupations that require focus, concentration, and mental fortitude, Leonel wasn't at all bothered by the opinions of those who hardly knew him. Instead he simply smiled and remained content in Madison's company. "Oh, well I'm glad I brought a bit of a spark of excitement then".

Her desire to be treated less as a queen and more like a woman prompted Leonel to gradually but cordially close the distance between them with a step and reaching for her hand with the engaging air of a gentleman. Smiling while his denim blue eyes reciprocated her longing gaze, he took into account that she couldn't relinquish her responsibilities as a queen, and so he offered a compromise. "Then let me treat you like a woman. Like a lady, just for today". It was evident that a potential relationship would be difficult. They lived in entirely different sections of the Milky Way Galaxy, and she could never leave Xiox to be with him on Earth, she was Xiox's queen. And he could certainly never leave his family and mankind behind to be with her on Xiox.

So for at least a day, he'd like to treat her as she desired. "Just the two of us. We could to a moon with no atmosphere and dance with the only thing watching us being the stars", he smiled.

@azure_son: Maddie allowed her hands to intertwine with his allowing her verdant forehead to rest on his pectoral muscle. The thought of being taken out into the solar system and treated like a free woman for one day did entice her, but she could never allow herself to be tormented that way. "I can't allow you to do that" She rejected, still with her hands intertwined peering into his eyes.

"I cant allow you to show me what I missing, for it to turn into a wonderful time; and then subject myself to torment when you leave" She admitted , pulling away from him just a bit with her hands still connected. "Look at me, I'm a green woman" she said with a forced chuckle, "I don't think I'll fit in anywhere outside this omega system, an you...your dreams and aspirations need you on earth. we're from two different world's Leonel...and I couldn't live with myself if either of us, felt like we were holding each other back."

@catalina_liafador:

"Madison", Leonel began, a soft smile curling upon his gentle features as he benignly cupped her chin, subtly raising it up as he met her emerald gaze before their hands embraced one another and their fingers intertwined, "It's okay". And it was. He wasn't at all expecting things to expand into something more. The distance between their respective worlds was exhausting. Long distance relationships are counterproductive, and having to travel back and forth between different planetary systems simply to see one another was not an option. Not when they were so desperately needed in their own planets. "I understand", and he did. "You're amazing. Strong. Smart. You're even a queen".

"But you're right. This.. it just wouldn't work", he paused, pressing an affectionate kiss on her forehead, "But oddly enough, it at least feels good to have some closure. Whenever you need me though, I'll always be by your side", he assured.

Not long ago...
Not long ago...

“Not long ago, there was a Great War that ate through every corner of our known galaxy, I wasn’t fortunate enough to see the ending. I was killed, or so it seemed. My body was retrieved by a group far more powerful than Universe Guardians; I was revived by an Exemplar. The moment my eyes opened, they burned in irritation; it was like emerging from the bowels of a black hole and looking at the incandescent corona of the great star.

Before the war, every planet I touched became mine, encompassed into my sphere of influence a protectorate of the Ninjans. Now my people are refugee’s living in make-shift homes; that will become graves for many. How did this happen? How could the very infrastructure of an entire people disappear just like that?

Because of a Queen’s arrogance, because of her pride, she was so enamored with personal love affairs, and learning more about foreign places, she failed to see the malicious intent behind her enemy’s smiles. She is now a queen without a throne.”

Madison closed her journal and placed it in a nearby chess. They OSA pushed the Talmut’s back to the Outer Rim, but the war was won on Earth, thanks to the efforts of STRIKE and a series of unattached heroes. The Ninjans suffered the worst of the war; they had the most to lose. With time they’d eventually become a full society again, but right now they were broke.

Forced to work with Talabeth and Crattian to fix their structure, and Madison? She was now on trial by the OSA for failing to properly plan for the invasion, even though none of them had knowledge of it. Her punishment if convicted? Exile.

Space had always been his solace. The way gamma rays and X-rays came to him in storms as the hearts of stars embraced him - it was all familiar. White cape flowing behind him, matter set alight by the electric sting of the energy field around him, the Prince of Power sped through the blackness of space, his mind set on finding someone who'd long since vanished. Madison Maynard. They were close once, fought alongside one another. For his own peace of mind, Leonel needed to find her. Arms stretched out in front of him, his bio-electric field crackled and surged, and energy flowed at his front, galvanizing the gravitons that hung near until the fabric of space folded around him.

Gone was the light-speed barrier, and away was Leonel, far beyond the speed of light until he slowed and stopped where space felt familiar. The energy flared hot and wild as he arrived at the edge of the system. And in the far distance, his powerful eyes caught the Magnum Opus Space Station orbiting Planet Xiox. It was where he'd last seen Madison. Speeding away, his body streaking past planet after planet till the Magnum Opus hovered before him in all it's gleaming glory, Leonel waited to be granted entrance. The Ninjans knew of him and his ties to Madison. But would they welcome him? Or deny him?

"We were weak" Addison exclaimed watching as the construction continued on the space station. A couple of cycles ago, a Ninjan from a foreign world did battle with Thee Champion.

It was a devastating battle, the Omega System could feel the flares of their powerful attacks; however, the ruling government took a hit when Shayla tapped into her magnetic might and tossed the Omega Space Station at Alexis. All of the Omega Races lost their leadership; save for the Ninjans.

The Ninjans were currently being lead by Addison Hopewell, a Ninjan survivor from Reality-M. Despite not wanting to be in charge she took full command of her duties while trying to locate the exiled Throne Heir.

Madison Maynard the rightful ruling Queen of Xiox had been exiled for crimes following the intergalactic Ninjan-Talmut war, but since then no one had seen or heard from her.

"Ma'am Leonel Pettis has arrived" One of her guards informed, causing the Parallel Ninjan to question his arrival. Though he'd helped them out a lot in the past the Ninjans weren't forgiving, granted it was Leonel's sister that brought the Talmut's here; and essentially Leonel's father that destroyed the Space Station.

"I'll meet him at the entrance." She replied before moving to the entrance to meet her longtime friend. The two of them shared a history unlike any in this universe. They survived M, fought alongside each other and managed to establish a new life here.

"Leonel" She said placing her hands on her hips. "If you're looking for Madison, she's not here. No one has seen her since the War"

@addison_hopewell:

White cape flowing behind him, the distant glow of the Omega System's star clinging to him like a thin film of cosmic fire, Leonel made his descent to the space station's entrance. Arms folded over his chest, his mind and heart settled on finding Madison at all costs, his left brow rose and a wave of surprise washed over him as his boots touched down on the metal platform. For before him stood not Madison - but his longtime friend, Addison. "Addison", Leonel answered, his smile small but genuine. She looked good. Her scarlet hair still hung over her back like a waterfall of volcanic fire, and her orange skin still reminded him of a long sunset. "That's a shame", he sighed, brow scowling as his mind began to fill with concern.

"Though I'm glad to see that you're doing well, I'm worried about Madison. She hasn't been seen for this long?", he paused, head shaking as though doing so would banish all possibility of harm coming his friend's way. "I have to find her. Madison has enemies in the cosmos. And ones she may not know about. Slavers looking to profit off exiled monarchs are not uncommon", he feared. Holding Addison's gaze with his own, the Prince of Power held his arms at his sides and stepped forward, "Addison", he began, "Help me find Madison. I know it's asking a lot from you.. with everything that's happened with the war, but who else am I to ask? You were my greatest friend once, one of only two people I trusted with my life when we were fighting together back in our home universe", he said.

"We haven't seen each other in a long time and I know it doesn't come off well that the first thing I do after finally seeing after you so long is asking you to help me like this when you have people to lead... but I need you. Help me find her. Even a hint will do".

@king_leo:

You have to leave
You have to leave

"I worry for her safety too." Addy replied. The Ninjans were at the top of the food chain within the Omega Nebula, even with half of their leadership dismantled the galaxy's fiercest females would hold on to the power structure developed eons ago.

But outside the Omega Nebula? Ninjans were targeted. Often times for their strength, slavers would capture them and force them into their barbaric gladiator pits--or worse. Heavens have mercy on anyone that tried that with the Ninjan Queen.

"I cannot leave this station. I am the acting Queen Leonel, and honestly, you don't want me to. I've had to quell war talk amongst the Omega Races, they don't particularly care for humans or Earth anymore."

Addison's words personified in the guards posted up at the entrance, they were seemingly waiting for the Prince of Power to make one false move and they'd attack.

"I can offer you a hint into where I think she's gone, but that's it. After that Leonel...You have to leave." Addison gave a subtle nod dismissing the Ninjan guards so she could speak with Leonel without wandering ears.

"There are rumors about an incredible power source stirring in the Raj System, nothing concrete about the source, but it's the last location where Madison's beacon was. If you find yourself out there...remember there will be no help...that's all Talmut Territory."

@addison_hopewell:

Addison was the Ninjan's queen, her people depended on her for their guidance and survival. "That's understandable. And I knew it was asking a lot from you as it was", he shrugged, a calm breath escaping him, his strong arms folding over his chest. "I can't blame the Omega Races for not caring for Earth, not with everything that's happened. But as for war", Leonel paused, blue eyes growing sterner as he held her gaze, "Hopefully it'll never come to that". Sweeping his eyes across the hall, Leonel caught the tension from Addison's royal guard but offered them no mind, his attention returned to his longtime friend instead. Hearing the clanking armor of Addison's guards as they spun at the heel and left, the Prince of Power nodded his gratitude.

"Don't worry, I don't plan on staying here any longer than I need to", he assured. Any meaningless second wasted only meant greater danger for Madison... wherever she was. "Talmut territory?", he murmured, brow scowling, heart clamoring in his chest from what he'd just been told. Stepping forward, Leonel marched into Addison's personal space, his face pale from the fear now swelling in his heart, fear for Madison's safety. "The Talmut decimated us the last time we fought", he said, voice low and just above a whisper. "They're powerful enough as it is. If there's a hidden power source within their borders... what happens if they come across it?", he asked, body facing her as he turned to lock eyes with her. "They'll use it. Abuse it. And if Madison's caught in the middle...", he stopped, gloved fists clenching tight as the air thickened with his presence.

"This is bad", Leonel paused, turning away from her as his strong strides carried him to the exit port, "Finding Madison is what matters but stopping the Talmut from coming into possession of this rumored energy source is just as important. Because if I fail, the Ninjans lose Madison and the Talmut - your enemies - will gain a lot more power. I'll need to be at full power for this. Oh and Addison", Leonel stopped, turning round to meet eyes with the Ninjan queen a final time, "Thanks. Your people'd sooner have my head in a museum than see their queen help me. I owe you so I won't absorb energy from the Omega system's home star like I was planning to", he joked, his smile calm and grateful. "Take care".

With a push off the ground, the Prince of Power climbed into the air and soared out the space station, a streak of charged particles trailing him as he searched for the nearest star.

@king_leo:

Talmut Raj System, Planet Johoto

No Caption Provided

There were rumors, disturbing rumors. She heard that a massive battle took place in the Omega System. A battle between two beings; one bearing what the Earthlings refer to as an "S". Leonel bore this symbol she was sure of it; but the disturbing part was that the Omega System Alliance had been killed, damaging the overall strength of the system she worked so hard to construct.

Initially, she wouldn't believe it, but once she learned this battle woke the dormant domain of Lord Nordok, she had no choice but to believe it. Her people (The Ninjans) were strong, in the aftermath of the catastrophe they'd rebound--only if that process wasn't hindered by their enemies.

But oh their enemies, The Emerald Queen was currently in the heart of the Talmut empire, an empire three times the size of the Ninjan Empire...and growing. The rivalry between the two Empires started back when Madison first took the seat as the head of the Ninjan Kingdom, The Talmut Emperor supposedly took offense to the Ninjan's destroying their 'brother' planet New Haven. Since then they'd always been in a "cold-war" status, never directly engaging in full on battle, but conquering smaller systems to create a buffer between the two empires. 9 years ago, the war turned hot and the first physical battle between the Ninjans and Talmuts occurred on the Prison planet Magog, a place the Ninjans had been keeping Catalina Liafador.

The Talmut's were ruthless brutes that subjugated entire galaxies, they'd pillage and enslave entire systems then take resources back to it's hidden capital world. Madison sought to finally uncover the secret to the Talmut capital, kill the emperor and maybe give her people a chance at peace; all the while trying to locate a mysterious power source she picked up when she entered the system.

Though she was clearly a Ninjan and stood out; she wasn't the only Ninjan on the planet. Plenty of her fellow sisters walk the Johto streets, albeit performing shameful jobs.

"M-my queen!" one of her sisters called out, noticing Madison from afar. Doing her best to stay stealthy, Madison quickly pressed her hands to the woman's mouth before backing her into an ally.

"Quiet. You know the dangers of my presence here. Who are you, and why are you living this filthy life away from Paradise?" Madison asked disgustedly.

"Our outpost on Tijan, It was destroyed by a woman wearing a weird mark on her chest." The woman explained confusing her queen in the process.

'A woman with a weird mark on her chest?' She thought, no particular person came to mind, but her thoughts were interrupted by her Ninjan Sister.

"My Queen, why are you here?"

"I-I'm not your Queen...not anymore" It hurt to say, but after aiding Leonel with Catalina the Ninjan classes agreed to exile their Queen forcing her to abdicate her throne or accept death.

"I'm looking for the information on the Talmut homeworld. Is there an information broker around here?" Before her fellow Ninjan could answer, sirens begin to shriek in the background. Thankfully she wasn't the one who set them off. But who did?

@madison_maynard:

There in the scorching heart of a star, the Prince of Power sat engulfed by a sea of stellar fire. Wrapped in folds of charged particles and storm after storm of gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet rays and the like - Leonel felt it all. Heat that turned matter in plasma, and gravity and pressure that bent entire worlds to their conjoined will. But where gravity would tear a planet apart by the atoms and the heat turn to plasma what remained, Leonel prospered. He meditated and his cells drank every ounce of stellar radiation that stung his flesh. Eyes shut, legs crossed under him and his cape glowing as white as the star he sat in, the Prince of Power thought only of Madison and the Talmut. His chest heaved, up and down as the energy swirled round him like a whirlwind. His cells swelled with power, and his eyes opened to gaze past the heat and energy as though they were the gates of Hades themselves.

No Caption Provided

A second swept in and out of time, and Leonel climbed out the core of the star, soaring through surging tides of radiation till he'd left the incalculable heat of it's core for the electric pinch of it's chromosphere. Blue eyes looking ahead, Leonel scowled, zeroed in on a distant star - and vanished in a violent streak of energy. "There", he murmured, his senses locked on the faint call of a familiar energy signature in a nearby planet. Accelerating, the Prince of Power dove into the alien atmosphere and the air slammed hard against him, sizzling and reddening until a cone of burning air swallowed him whole. Burning and expanding, the air behind him cried long and loud with the sharp crack of nature's most well known shockwave; thunder. He was in Talmut territory, and as he flared across the open sky, he caught the loud wail of a siren. With a glance over his shoulder, Leonel's eyes met the sight of Talmut ships trailing his flight-path.

"Good", he told himself, "It'll keep them away from Madison". Madison was an old friend. One with whom he once shared a mental link that bridged his thoughts to hers. Madison, it's me, Leo. No time for questions. Just know, I'm setting up a distraction for you, his thoughts echoed out to her, I heard there was some kind of hidden power source here. If that's what you're looking for, let me help. But after this is all said and done, we have to get you out of here. Blasting off into the distance till the land gave way to sea, the Prince of Power flew far. And as the cities faded beyond the horizon and only enemy ships hung nearby, Leonel turned round and swung his arm till his fist smashed into the particles in the air some inches shy of the speed of light. BOOM! Energy chained together, tethering from one particle to the other until a wave of nuclear heat washed over all ships that'd trailed him.

Matter was vaporized, energy crackled, and the sea boiled. "I hope that was enough".

@king_leo: @madison_maynard:

"Is it true?"

The words were spoken with a thoughtlessly casual air that belied not only the magnitude of the subject being discussed, but that were almost entirely at odds with the scene in which they were spoken: the speaker, a tall, powerfully-built female of an unidentified humanoid species held a feebly struggling insectoid being aloft by its throat. The latter did not appear to be particularly light, but was being gripped as easily as if it weighed nothing at all.

"Hzzzkkt..." the creature stuttered. "Izz true. Izz seen on Johoto. Izz zzpoken of by zzlavez..."

"Mm." The large female tossed the insectoid to the side with a motion so disdainful that it was evident that it had already been forgotten. Obviously possessing an adequate sense of self-preservation, it immediately scuttled off into the shadows. The female then turned, facing two silent, cloaked figures that had been impassively observing the exchange. "It appears I have a journey to make."

"Johoto is within the sovereign territory of the Talmut," the figure on the left intoned. "To trespass there would carry too great risk of inciting-"

The figure was abruptly silenced, as the female cast her gaze upon him and narrowed her brows ever so slightly. Before it had a chance to so much as gasp, the cloaked being was compressed into an object approximately 1/20th of its original size, which immediately dropped to the ground and began seeping unhealthy-looking fluids.

"Will you be taking a full assault fleet?" The second cloaked figure chimed in, seemingly oblivious to its counterpart's fate.

"No." The large warrior turned her back, already striding towards the armory. "One ship. The fastest we have that can still accommodate a stealth generator."
