Introduction

Welcome to Scarriden. It's a city where the police officers work with superheroes and attempt to control the villains. But in this city, the civilians aren't perfectly happy with that. They don't like the idea of these "goddamn mutants" running around and being able to do whatever the hell they want. Sure, they'll cry out for them when they're in trouble, but when they're safe, their opinions change.

So when someone offers to get rid of them for once and for all, most people don't dare ask questions. As the heroes do, they decide to engage in civil negotiations with this man. Maybe some sort of arrangement can be come to. But someone in the "villainous" team gets inside information. It turns out that the other side doesn't intend on engaging in civil negotiation with the heroes- they intend on kidnapping them.

At first, the villains don't do anything, expecting the heroes to break themselves out of it. But then, that doesn't happen. Instead, they actually do get captured. A few escape. Some get recaptured.

One, however, does escape and goes into hiding. They hear whispers of villains, villains that are smart enough to stay out of the public eye. Smart enough not to get caught. They do some research and finds the name of one, one who has been known to offer themselves out as a mercenary, a master thief for hire. They decide to ask them for help... But can a hero and a villain ever really co-operate?

Lucian just grinned as Markus mentioned he’d be there and be able to blend in. “Oh don’t you worry darling, Maelstrom will be there, lurking behind the scenes. You might just have to pout to one or two cameras and say how gutted I am that I can’t be there but I’m just too unwell.” He wouldn’t miss the opportunity to get his revenge for the world. Not after everything. Not after this.

He pouted teasingly as Markus joked about burning down his apartment. “I’m hurt, Markus, deeply hurt. This is a wound that may never heal.” He said dramatically, before his face broke into a grin, almost of its own free will. “God only knows what you’ll have to do to make it up to me,” he said with a wink, before getting to his feet and having to hold in a groan as he did so. The pain had at least started to ease while he was still, but moving hurt like hell. He moved slowly and carefully over to the kitchen and began searching for ingredients.

“Trust me, darling, I’ve been on my own for this long and I haven’t burned down an apartment or starved to death yet. Had a few close calls but it all worked out in the end,” he said. Those first few cooking experiments had been pretty terrible and while he joked about them now, he hadn’t forgotten that feeling of hopelessness, of feeling like he’d never get past it. Somebody should have been teaching him to cook while he was still in his teens. Instead, he was fighting for his life on the streets and getting his hands on whatever food he could. And he’d been one of the lucky ones.

He found enough ingredients to make a decent curry and started prepping the ingredients. “You’re in luck, darling, I’ve been told my curry is to die for. It was the easiest way to wrap one of my exes around my finger if I wanted something.” It was almost concerning how comfortable he felt around Markus, how easily these stories slipped out. And as much as it terrified him that he was getting that close to someone again... there was a part of him that was so, so relieved to be able to talk to someone again.

The Hero | Outfit : herex|xhex: #800000
Markus simply scoffed at Lucian's attempt at a joke, especially the overdramatic flare. He always was one for the dramatics, and this was no exception. "Just be careful is all I'm saying." he said with a small smile. He watched as Lucian got to his feet and made his way over to the kitchen where he explained that he hadn't always been the best cook, but that he had gotten better. As well as having been one to make some of the best curry. Markus thought for a moment as he slowly made his own way over to the kitchen, holding his side as he did so. The knife wound in his side was still healing as it was still fresh and any and all movement had hurt to do so. He'd need to make sure he was careful in any case, as the last thing he'd need is for it to reopen.

He watched silently as Lucian made the food, watching how carelessly and almost in utter perfection how Lucian moved about the room as he cooked. It seemed to be something that came almost all too naturally to him, and caused a small smile to appear on Markus' face, but for only a moment. He shook his head, Lucian was still a villain and he was the polar opposite. At least that's what he kept telling himself. He wasn't anything like him, but yet Markus kept feeling like they were more similar in more ways than one and with past recent events, that scared him. He didn't want to think about how similar in ways that they were, especially with how he went about things when he went after Lucian. Markus didn't know why he acted the way he did, nevermind how he lashed out and didn't mind killing the people that took Lucian. If anything, it felt good to do so. To finally take some power back for himself, and for people to fear him. The look in the men's eyes as he had ended their lives were something that caused a bit of a rush in Markus, and he didn't know why and it frightened him a bit. He wasn't sure if that was simply due to how much time he had been spending with Lucian, or if it was something darker within himself that had always been there. But he didn't like it.

Markus' attention was taken aback when Lucian placed the food infront of him. Shaking his head as he recollected himself, giving Lucian a forced smile and chuckle, "Sorry, was lost in my head for a moment." he said softly. He looked back up at Lucian and then at the food that was now in front of him on the table. "Sorry, but this looks good. Thanks, Luc." he said with a small smile. He took a few bites of the food, and a large smile overtook his face as he couldn't believe how not only hungry he was, but how good the food tasted. Shoveling some more into his mouth for a few minutes before he finally spoke, "So, after this I was thinking I should go down to the shop, just to talk to my boss for a quick minute and show her everything is fine. She's been...Well, you know how bosses are when you don't show up for a few appointments in a row and have radio silence. And then after that we can go on with whatever you have in mind, seeing as I have nothing really planned, except for the obvious."

Lucian had heard some people say they found cooking therapeutic. Well, Lucian wouldn’t have gone that far, but he did find it grounding. It kept it from getting too distracted in his own thoughts, kept him from getting too wrapped up in anything. He was conscious that he wasn’t in his own kitchen, and totally aware of the hero’s eyes on him, probably watching him to make sure he didn’t actually burn down the kitchen.

Lucian plated up the food and put a plate down in front of Markus, who now appeared to be lost in thought. He shook himself a little and apologized, saying he was lost in thought. His reaction to the food made Lucian smile. He didn’t say anything, but he didn’t need to. He could tell by the speed Markus was eating that he enjoyed it, and seeing that smile on Markus’ face for what seemed like the first time in a while made him smile too.

Goddammit, he needed to be careful. Markus mightn’t have been like the others, but he was still a hero. Lucian was only good to him as long as he was useful. The minute they were done with this, Markus would probably hand him over to the cops... and that was the best case scenario. He should know better by now. A hero’s promise wasn’t worth the air it used.

Markus shocked him out of his thoughts, saying he wanted to go down to the shop to check in with his boss. Of course, he had an actual day job. Lucian knew that over the next few days, he’d need to start doing some actual work again, but that seemed unimportant right now. There was just too much at stake. “Do whatever you need to do, darling. Which reminds me, I really need to get working on those lovely suits of ours for this masquerade. Last chance to request any alterations,” he said with a raised eyebrow. And then he caught himself. “We also need to get planning some strategies. Training regimes for the next few days to make sure we’re both back up to strength, plans for the night itself, and of course, any recon opportunities we might have between now and then,” he said.

Shadowfaux | Hero | x|xhex: #800000


Markus simply shook his nodded his head as Lucian spoke, taking in everything he said as he silently ate. Lucian was correct, they had to start planning on what to do next, even with his recent injury he'd have to push through. They weren't going to make it very far if they stopped their plans simply cuz he was injured. He took plenty of beatings in the past, and a simple stab wound wasn't going to keep him down. He rolled his eyes at the mention of the suits for their main plan, up until now he had almost entirely forgotten. He thought for a moment as he bit his lip while he was in deep thought, "Nothing too flashy or out there like it was for that event last time. Last thing we need is for people to start putting the pieces together for who I am. And nothing too bright or obnoxious patterns. Those don't suit me, no pun intended." he said with a small grin as he finished the rest of his food, and quickly emptied the dishes into the sink.

Turning back to Lucian as he spoke, "My trip to the shop shouldn't be too long, if anything comes up or if I'm gone for too long, I'll message you when I can. Sound good?" he said in a rather rhetorical manner as he quickly left to change into a proper outfit of just a simple t-shirt and over shirt with jeans. He grabbed his wallet and keys and quickly left after giving a short and as usual awkward goodbye to Lucian for now.

The trip to the shop wasn't very long, nor was the appointment and 'conversation' he had with his boss. He was given a final notice, if he skipped any more appointments or stopped answering any calls or texts, he'd be let go. He hadn't even gotten much of a word into the one sided conversation as she had somewhere to be and swiftly left after making sure he got the message. When he heard the door close behind him, he swore under his breath. He knew he was cutting things a bit too close with his job, skipping more than just a few days like he had told Lucian. He'd get over it, and if need be he would be able to find a new job, Scarriden was a big enough city. He grabbed a few things and swiftly left himself, the small chime of the door sounded as he left. Shoving his hands into his coat pockets he slowly began making his way back to his apartment, taking a different route as he could have sworn he had the feeling of someone falling him from afar. But not turning around or giving a sign that he was aware of the figures that were slowly trailing from behind him.

Lucian just raised his eyebrows as Markus implied his suit was "out there" last time. Sure, it hadn't exactly been just a plain old boring suit, but it hadn't been that- But he had a point. They unfortunately needed to blend in at this one, which meant simple. He just nodded as Markus said he would be back soon and that he'd message Luc if there were any issues. He grabbed his laptop from the loft, before settling back down on the couch to get a bit of work done on designing the suits. But no matter what he did, he couldn't concentrate. Something at the back of his mind was nagging at him, telling him that something wasn’t right. He told himself that he was just anxious, uneasy about being alone. But after a while, he became certain that it was more than just that. He slammed his laptop shut. He was still in Markus’ borrowed clothes, which would be good for helping him remain under the radar. He searched for just a moment to find a hoodie, before pulling it on and tucking his hair into the hood. Markus had left his knives to the side, and Lucian shoved two of them into his pocket, before leaving the apartment.

He wasn’t enough of an idiot to follow Markus’ trail exactly. That could raise attention they didn’t need. Instead, he made his own way to the tattoo studio and hung around until he saw Markus leaving, looking a little disgruntled. He was starting to think that he’d just been paranoid, that the events of the past few days had gotten to him. And then he saw them. A group of figures, hanging closely behind Markus. Lucian began to tail them. And when they started to get too close… Lucian struck. The first one was on the ground before he’d even realised he’d been stabbed. The second managed to begin to throw a punch, but Lucian easily dodged, his knife plunging into his stomach. The next managed to draw a gun, managed to fire off a shot, but it missed Luc, who knocked the gun out of his hand and slashed the man across the face, before slamming the man back into the wall. “You tell me what you know, or you die,” he hissed, the knife against the man’s jugular. He could see the man swallow, see the man try to decide which he valued more- his employer or his life.

“They’ve been watching you. Watching both of your apartments, any time you leave we’ve been ordered to tail you and try and attack you. Capture is preferable but if you put up too much of a fight or draw too much attention, we’re just to kill you. Please, don’t, I never-”

“Who’s employing you?” Lucian asked, pressing his knife a little harder to get the man’s attention and stop the pleading. Again, Lucian could see him trying to make that decision all over again. And again, he gave Luc what he wanted, telling Lucian the name he’d already been expecting. “Good.” And then in a swift movement, he plunged the knife in the other hand into the man’s gut, stepping away and turning to Markus. “Are you okay?” He asked, but didn’t wait for an answer before he started cleaning up the mess. This was an easy clean up, easy to pass off as a fight gone wrong. He wiped down the knives with his sleeves, kicking it across the ground to make it look like it had been dropped, before pressing one of the grunts’ hand’s against it, doing the same with the other. He never liked leaving his knives behind, but sometimes, it was necessary to cover his tracks. Once he was happy, he straightened back up.

“Listen to me. We only have a matter of time before they realise we’re not being followed. I have somewhere we can stay until we get a concrete plan in place. I’ll send you the address. Go home, get enough clothes and supplies for a few days, bring our laptops, anything else you think we might need. We probably only have a few hours. I’ll meet you there.”

Luc turned and left again, heading back to his own apartment. He knew it was a risk, knew they could be waiting for him. So he was cautious when he got back to his apartment and it was empty. He shoved some clothes into a bag with a few more weapons, as well as supplies for making their suits. He didn’t know how long they’d be gone, but he wasn’t coming back here if he could avoid it.

His bag packed, he left the apartment, keeping his head down, sending the address to Markus as he walked. He’d been renting out this apartment for a while, just to have in case things went south. He paid cash, and in return, the landlord kept a fake name and details on record. It was in a rougher part of town, but it did the job. As he got in, though, he suddenly realised that it was… considerably smaller than both his and Markus’ apartments, only really meant for one person at a time, and not really furnished for comfort. It wasn’t ideal, but it would do for a few days. It would have to.
