A small tavern in Tokyo's Meguro district. The walls are made of solid wood and there's that special feeling upon entering. The tavern is known for it's outerworlder friendly policy, allowing all kinds of beings to step inside and have a drink with each other. The tavern's policy includes a rule against any form of violence, mentaly and phisically, creating a peaceful and safe athmosphere. A staff wanted sign hangs outside, right on the left wing of the double door, that seems almost like a gate to the past.


Staff:

Owner: Akita Ardain (TheCrowhunter)

When no staff is on, the tavern is closed (exept it says otherwise here)

She wasn't dead... Velera's head had been smashed in, but she barely seemed nonplussed by it. She stood up and re-set her jaw. Though shocked, Integra had the sense of self to remember, Oh shit... if Ghosty sees me fighting, she's going to tell Akita. With a yelp, Integra dropped the gun and ducked back down behind the counter. In a hurry, Bezalel dissolved into shadow-stuff, melting into the floorboards to rejoin Blackheart.

"Kick his arse Ghosty!"

Humanoid turned to her, only to once more do the same thing with swords and axe, but this time… she did not care about him, after dodging his all-out attack, she went after the gun hidden behind counter. As she dashed at him once more, he thought she’d make the same mistake, once more he let go of his weapons, but… she simply glided below him on back.

Right to where the counter was...

Smiling she reached behind the counter, and grabbed teleporting device, humanoid tried to get to her, and he almost reached her with his hands… before being teleported out of the building.

“Well, that was annoying, really wanted to kill him...” She said, paused, and looked at all those who were left.

“Anyone else wants to screw around, or are we done here?” Silence was the only reply.

“I guess that’s it then… Fishy, why the heck were you cowering?” She glared at Fishy, who could’ve reached for this ace at any time, yet he didn’t, thanks to that fact alone... she considered killing him instead.

Nimble and lithe, as graceful as a panther, Velera dodged the Humanoid's signature attack. She sprinted to the counter, reaching for the teleportation device located under the counter. In a fluid motion she had the gun in her hand and fired it at the creature, sending it out of the bar.

Ghosty seemed annoyed, addressing the bar then turning back to Integra. “I guess that’s it then… Fishy, why the heck were you cowering?”

By now, Integra's shadow had reattached, "I told you! I don't fight!!! I'm a terrible shot, and DRUNK! I was worried I'd hit you or someone else instead!" He was lying through his teeth, of course, but living as an outlaw for so long meant he was quite skilled at deceit. "I thought you said we could leave the bouncer work up to you!"

“Really? I didn’t… shut up.” Velera knew Fishy was right, she knew it, yet could not accept it, for she also knew that Fishy could fight. Question was – why he chose not to.

“It’s annoying that you pretend.” Then she turned around, and slowly focused on cleaning what was left of this chaotic event.

OOC- Umm, sorry for replying so late, and sorry for such a short response ^^

Integra nodded absentmindedly, wondering how often events like that might go down. Velera seemed onto him, and even decided to voice it.

"It's annoying that you pretend."

"It's annoying that you presume," he stated simply. A swarm of tiny robots, nanites, arose from Blackheart's coat and began to clean the room to the best of their ability, even going so far as to rearrange molecules and rebuild the broken furniture. "We all have our reasons Velera, test not mine."

"It's annoying that you presume," he stated simply, and then added...

"We all have our reasons Velera, test not mine." Is what Velera heard, while cleaning, and it made her laugh, laugh like never before.

She laughed for good 10 seconds, longer than usual 5 seconds, then she turned around and looked at Fishy.

“Congrats, you just confirmed it.” Slowly a grin emerged, followed by cold stare.

But…

Her stare interrupted, now checking environment with eyes alone, for she’s too lazy to move at the moment. Looking at each part of their rather big workplace, and somehow… everything seemed to be clean already, in less than an hour cleaning might have been done.

“Seems like we’re done cleaning, let’s see if we can close for today… cause I’m done.”

“Congrats, you just confirmed it.” Velera smiled at him, staring with the eyes of a predator.

"You can't prove anything," he shrugged, looking about the place that was now as clean as when he first came in. Blackheart's shadow moved erratically, not quite correctly with the light being cast. She's a sharp one, isn't she? Perhaps a little accident should befall her... Integra just sighed, used to the demon's provocations.

With a yawn and beginning to stretch, the Blackheart simply agreed with Velera. "Yeah, sure Ghosty. It's late and that was a big enough mess anyways. I'm sure Akita won't mind."

The AI started talking to Blackheart again, via neural link "Eventful first day, eh love? I like your co-worker. She's feisty."

Groaning and starting to feel the effects of the imbibed liquor, Integra looked at the few people still in the bar. "Last Call! We're closing up shop. You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here!"

"You can't prove anything," Fishy shrugged, which made Velera chuckle. Stretching arms, she slowly moved towards counter, pulled out an empty glass, into which she poured some kind of drink.

"Yeah, sure Ghosty. It's late and that was a big enough mess anyways. I'm sure Akita won't mind." She heard, and…

“Down we go…” Glass raised full, then put down, empty.

“Sucks, that I can’t get drunk…” Velera sighed, then looked at Fishy, who groaned and now yelled.

“Want one?” Obviously Velera meant that drink, she earlier drank.

Integra pinched the bridge of his nose, looking over to Velera as she complained about a fast metabolism.

"Well... I suppose if you can get your head caved in and be fine, a little poison wouldn't exactly do it for you. I might be able to rig up a neural dampener that would mimic the effects of inebriation..."

"Want one?"

He eyed her warily, but decided he might as well. "Sure!"

“Inebriation, no thanks, I can get drunk to be honest, but it takes a lot of time… I mean a lot.” Which in turn is no fun for Velera, and she only got drunk once, from the most poisonous whisky she’s ever seen.

"Sure!" It was noticeable how he eyed her, but he agreed, so she smiled brightly, and poured a bit of this drink of hers into one glass, then pushed towards him.

“Here you go, though be warned, it’s strong.”

"Cheers mi amour!" Integra clanked his glass against hers, nodding fervently while downing the concoction he'd been given. "Yanno, back on my planet.... Hick! Drinks like this were commonplace. A single embitterment was enough to get you downed"

The bar swam, nothing seemed to be the same anymore. The pirate was thoroughly drunk at this point. Both the demon and AI that accompanied him were silent, allowing him a moment of mortal weakness.

Glass clanked, substance drank, and now…

"Yanno, back on my planet.... Hick! Drinks like this were commonplace. A single embitterment was enough to get you downed" Fishy said, or rather slightly yelled.

“Your planet, interesting, though I hope your people had stronger drinks than these…” She chuckled, and looked around, patrons left, so now it was possible to close.

“Want to close, and rest, or shall we close and drink more?”

“Want to close, and rest, or shall we close and drink more?”

"I, *hicc* for one, *hicc* can't sleep unless I've, *hicc* been properly marinated!" He nodded, for no apparent reason, as if he had imparted some sort of divine wisdom.

"Tiny robots, *hicc* in my bloodstream, *hicc* keep my blood alcohol content, *hicc* in a suitable range. *Hicc* They make it hard to, *Hicc* yanno.... *hicc* get drunk."

The neural link in his head sounded with an AI's voice "Darling, don't get inebriated and give away any secrets please ~"

"I, *hicc* for one, *hicc* can't sleep unless I've, *hicc* been properly marinated!" He nodded, for no apparent reason, as if he had imparted some sort of divine wisdom. Velera chuckled at the sighed of intoxicated Fishy.

"Tiny robots, *hicc* in my bloodstream, *hicc* keep my blood alcohol content, *hicc* in a suitable range. *Hicc* They make it hard to, *Hicc* yanno.... *hicc* get drunk." Chuckling stopped abruptly, she glared at him with curiosity, a small hint has been given, by chance, one that she won’t forget.

“I see, well, let’s close…”

"Sooo, did you notice our boss is a demon?" With a snap of his fingers, Integra summoned several quasi-real humans made of shadowstuff, and they started going through the closing business. Blackheart was a powerful sorcerer, and above simple housework.

"And about earlier, you seemingly came back from the dead. What uhh... what was that? And as long as we're... chatting... Are you from this planet? What'd you think of the Celestial that came in a bit ago. I'm partially demon, so personally, Celestials terrify me."

"Sooo, did you notice our boss is a demon?" With a snap of his fingers, Integra summoned several quasi-real humans made of shadowstuff, and they started going through the closing business. Velera saw it as an interesting ability, something she could use to get an easier life.

“Nice workers…” She muttered.

"And about earlier, you seemingly came back from the dead. What uhh... what was that? And as long as we're... chatting... Are you from this planet? What'd you think of the Celestial that came in a bit ago. I'm partially demon, so personally, Celestials terrify me."
Velera smiled, before answering…

“Yeah, I know she is a demon. When it comes to my quirk, well, that was me being… I guess immortal? Can’t say really, I just seem to have problem with dying, but trust me it is not as great as it seems.” She paused, thinking about Celestial.

“About Celestial… I hate his guts, though he does have this aura I don’t like, but it’s not scaring me, it’s making me thirst for his blood.” She chuckled.

“Ah, sorry, I’m bit of an insane type, but just a bit, so no worries.”

She's immortal, wouldn't that come in handy with your necromancy.... Unlimited parts to use. Integra shook his head, trying to get the thought out of his head. The cleaning was finished and the last shadow servant dissolved into the darkness.

“Ah, sorry, I’m bit of an insane type, but just a bit, so no worries.”

"Uhh.... Insane or not, I wouldn't try to fight the Celestial, he's not just the typical angel or whatnot... He's ancient... You can practically feel the power oozing off him." He left off the part about Bezalel having told him, it seemed unwise to mention... it. "But enough of all that foul business," Blackheart's shadow snaked out behind him, grabbing a bottle of wine. He uncorked it with his teeth, spitting the cork into the trash. "Cheers!" He swigged straight from the bottle.

Velera nod – knowing she’ll try to kill that celestial thingy anyway, simply because she didn’t like him isn’t enough, he made her furious. Though she choose to talk about a different thing…

“Sooo, what is this strange power you have…” She asked, tilting head lightly, listening in, as if noticing sound of something being uncorked.

“Sooo, what is this strange power you have…”

The question was a sobering one, and Integra decided to finish the bottle before answering. A long gulp emptied the merlot bottle into his stomach and he stopped to think for a second. "It's... complicated... On my planet many people can utilize a sort of magic, but my powers extend past that. In my travels I found many technologically advanced planets, and thus cybernetic enhancements make up bits of my body. I've been tweaked so much I can hardly be considered mortal. Um..." He stopped to think about it some more.

"I made a deal with the Devil... Basically sums up my powers."

Velera had to wait a little, watch how Fishy drank, but it ended, and with end came an answer.
"I made a deal with the Devil... Basically sums up my powers."

Answer to which she smiled.

“Well, that explains earlier sound, and moving shadow, yes, I noticed.” Short chuckle, then her eyes became cold once more, focused on the entrance to tavern. Reason? Unknown even to her, something was simply amiss, and so she kept on staring at the door.
