William had sat on a bench towards the edge of the market square, having done some quick shopping, the plastic bag hung from his wrist, slouched over his elbows resting on his legs, he was clad in his everyday clothes: thick hoodie jumper, t-shirt, jeans, boots. what any nineteen years old would usually wear.

His headphones planted firmly over his ears as they blurted out music, the two ghosts that tended to follow him about, one a small child of indeterminate gender, who took the form of a sheet covered person with two little eye holes in the sheet, who sat next to William, their legs waving back and forth as they watched the bustling market. the other an elder gentleman in shirt and smart trousers with suspenders, dress shoes and yeah... you guessed it the man is a ghostly detective. even goes out his way to look the part.

"Mr Knox..." cut off before he could continue William spoke up "remember what I said..." the ghost sighed and turned to face William "Seer, do you see the odd child over there?"

William sat up drinking the energy drink can he was finishing off, he had to look around for the child but he spotted the residual aura of spiritual energies radiating from the nine years old and looked to the two ghosts. The child shrugged as it always did, but the detective crossed his arms expecting William 'Seer' Knox to be a good Samaritan.

"Fine...I'll investigate jeez" Will stood up pushing his hands off his knees in the process and wandered into the crowd.

Ixa was wandering through the crowd meanwhile, looking for a place to eat. Someplace outside, preferably. It was nice out today, and eating outside meant having a variety of escape options. So, he finally came across a place that looked like it would be nice to eat at. There was even a table open still. This made Ixa delighted. So, he moved in to take his seat...

"Get out of the way, brat! This seat is mine!"

Suddenly, he was shoved aside by a large muscular man. Ixa looked at the man with disdain and confusion, disdain because Ixa was trying to have a happy day and this guy was ruining it, as well as stealing his table, and confusion because even though he was tortured by scientists, brutally experimented on, and did not possess all of his original organs, he could not understand why people would be so rude, especially for a table. Furthermore, for some reason he was still intimidating Ixa with his stare, probably meaning he did not want Ixa to raise a fuss or make him run off. Actually, with his appearance, a normal child might pee themselves with the aura he gave off.

Of course, any normal person looking at this would only see Ixa, who was wearing a light blue sweatshirt, white shorts, and blue and white sneakers, looking at a large muscular man who was clearly at least three times bigger then him, and thought that Ixa would just comply. However...

"What the....hhiiiii!"

Suddenly, a large white wolf had appeared and was glaring at the man who had done this, and at the same time his shoes were frozen to the ground he was standing on, with a spike of ice having shot out and just stopped at the threshold of his neck. Ixa calmly got up, and looked at him.

"I was here first. No cutting in line. And don't be rude, jerk".

With that line, Ixa walked past him calmly and sat at the empty table. Of course, there were multiple chairs there so they could have shared, but Ixa would not share with someone who acted like that, especially to him.

After a few seconds, the ice dissipated and the wolf disappeared. Meanwhile, the waitress who had seen far weirder began to approach the table the boy had taken a seat in.

As they had no intention of harming him, and due to the size of the crowd, neither Ixa's ability to sense danger nor his enhanced senses had taken notice of William yet. However, it was possible for William to have sensed the spike in spiritual energy, and for him to recognize that the white wolf had been a form of spirit tied to the boy.

Easily traversing the crowd, as an orphan and a Shadow runner he got good at it or else he'd have been caught years back and or killed, depending on who he pissed off, the two ghosts had faded away, leaving Will to do what he could without their unneeded opinions.

William stood to watch the scene unfold, staying clear out the way "and that is why you don't pick on strangers, dumbass..." Will mumbled to himself before waiting a half minute before approaching, he comes towards the table and stops placing a hand onto the chair opposite "may I take a seat and join you?" seeing how the child reacted to the burly stranger it was best to be polite, that and the spirit wolf could appear anywhere nearby.

At the same time that the man came over, so had the waitress. Ixa looked at the man, but before he could reply, out of his sweatshirt's head hole where Ixa's own head was coming out of, the head of a white wolf pup also popped out. It looked very adorable. Looking at the pup, and then the man, Ixa just smiled. "Sure, there is enough room for everyone".

He then looked down at the white wolf as the waitress approached like everything was normal. "Snowflake, what are you doing appearing there for...ah! Umm, lets see...I will have the scrambled eggs with sprinkled parm cheese, some English muffins with butter, and an order of bacon and sausage. Ah, double those actually. Snowflake, you are probably hungry too. And...I don't know what that guy wants".

Actually, as Snowflake was his Spirit Guardian, he did not need to eat...but if Snowflake ate, he would not use spiritual energy from Ixa when he used his abilities, so it would be favorable to do so.

"Just the usual sweetheart" he smiled politely and nodded to the waitress, the usual being a double bacon cheeseburger fries and a drink. Will took the seat and glanced about, hanging his plastic bag of supplies off the backrest of his chair "that was quite the show you put on, with the ice, that and your spiritual aura is easily visible from a distance.

in the corner of his eye, the young child ghost reappeared covered as always by the sheet and mutely observing the situation at hand, the child had appeared in one of the chairs at the table. "thought you didn't get far" he spoke out loud again just a shrug from the sheet covered ghost, William shook his head and glanced back to the spirit wolf and child.

"why are you alone? are you an orphan?" he waited for some response, hoping to have the child tell his story.

"Show?" Ixa asked him questioningly, a bit confused. He didn't think what he did was extreme. However, his common sense was curtailed from being raised in a science lab where they wanted to make him into a weapon to sell. Compared to what he had been trained to do, what he did just there was extremely minor, to the point it could be called a whim. Therefore, he did not understand why it was treated as a show, like it was something spectacular. If he wanted to, Ixa could freeze the whole city block...but, he would probably get chased after by police and killed, so he didn't want to do that anyways. Also, using that much power at once would probably be too much for him, so he would probably be taken out easily if he did.

Ixa noticed the ghosts, as his own spiritual power was exceedingly high since he possessed a Spirit Guardian, a Spirit tied to his soul that would defend him from harm and follow his orders, while also having a free will of its own.

"You seem popular" Ixa commented, as now that Will was right in front of him, he could vaguely sense another spirit around.

"Ah, me? Let's see..." Ixa mentioned. He tried to remember the cover story, however...

"My name is Ixa Rixy! The second youngest of the Rixy brothers! I have a lot of brothers! Anyways, I am..."

Ixa tried to remember, however there was a seriously fatal flaw with any excuse he made that was not the truth. There was a barcode under his left eye, in plain view of Will. However, Will looked trustworthy enough that he did not think to worry.

"I am new to the city! And yeah, I am an orphan, but its okay because I have been managing pretty well!"

Ixa was also very optimistic.

William pointed to his cheek, where the barcode would be if he had one from the same group "and the barcode? unless the social workers started barcoding us orphans" he lowered his hand, resting it on the table. it really didn't take much for William to know the kid was withholding the truth, heck, he was doing the same.


he sat back and reached into his bag for a can of fizzy drink, opening it up and taking a swig, before setting the can down on the table, he got comfy leaning back and hooking an arm over the back of his chair, he glanced past Ixa and noticed to suited gentleman shades and the whole men in black getup.

with a unnoticeable sigh, Will kept an eye on the two of them, he had his pistols at his hips but, he was hoping that they stayed there. he didn't need another trip to the police station nor a secret organisation going after him.

he looked up to see the meals being brought through from inside the cafe/restaurant "ah food, finally"

"Its a birthmark! I have had it since I was clo...born!" Ixa proclaimed in his very, very poor defense. He had totally forgotten about that thing. Weren't they supposed to find a way to hide it? The issue is when they did that, it actually seemed to glow. Probably some defense mechanism against that maybe?

In truth, if someone scanned that barcode with an advanced enough device, they would get a total readout on Ixa and his abilities. Not only that, they would get his age, subject number, noted traits, and various photos of him in action. There were also a few embarrassing photos of him during medical examinations by the scientists, and even a bit more. That barcode was meant to be used to confirm it was the real thing, and not another clone, and to help people catalog his abilities.

Though truthfully, there were a number of smartphones that if they focused on the barcode, would also end up pulling this information after taking a picture of it.

"Oh good, the food!" Ixa said, as the food was put in front of him. He then began to dig in, ultimately trying to shift the conversation.

when the meals arrived, all questions stopped and William began to eat, chowing down on his burger and fries, he wasn't a graceful eater, that's for certain, but he liked his food. he stopped about halfway through his burger when he noticed the two suits had left and gone on with their day, glancing about, he shrugged and went back to eating looking back at the child in front of him. "you got a place to call your own? a home? if not, I know a good place that'll take care of you. Roughing it on the streets isn't the best idea"

the detective made himself present and looked between Will and Ixa, the ghost pondering quietly "can he see us as well?" Will sat back and looked at the ghost a fry handing from his mouth, pulling the chip in and eating it before speaking "no but he can sense you guys"

Ixa was...not the cleanest of eaters. That said, nothing actually got on him because Snowflake had taken the defensive "napkin" position, not only eating her own food but anything that spilled out from his. It seemed like he didn't have any reaction to immediately slurping down the milkshake in a fashion where one would normally get brainfreeze, but also was able to eat the hot foods as well. However, he did seem to notice the burgers were exceptionally hot, or at least his was. It wasn't actually that exceptionally, but Ixa's cold resistance made him a bit more sensitive to heat. It couldn't be called a weakness, more a discomfort. Hot food was okay, provided it was not too hot, but as for the weather...well, hot weather bothered Ixa greatly.

"I kind of have a home! A home is a place with a bed, bathroom, and you can get food!"

Snowflake looked at him and interjected. "To be exact, its a hotel room".

"Yeah! And thanks to Snowflake remembering to tell me to pay for it by..."

"By asking his brother's for help sometimes".

Ixa was about to say something, but Snowflake interrupted again. "Yeah! It's a bit lonely on my own, but I have Snowflake right?"

No matter what, there was one thing about Ixa painfully obvious to borderline be dangerous. He had to be the most overly optimistic person in the universe, his smile saying it all given he was in a hotel room that cost money, with no "stable" income, and would rely on support from his brothers for help. Brothers who were not anywhere near him presently.

Ixa was an idiot, after all.
