A resort moon located above Osenia. 40% of the moon had been terraformed and transformed by the joint effort of Drakov Industries and Faery Wing Corporations. A popular destination for tourist, thanks to the sights of its surprisingly artificial white sandy beaches and clear blue oceans. The Insectoid races of the beetle-like Kwagas, the dragonfly-like Nefil, and the butterfly-like Wuna control various aspects of the moon's security and administration.

Long ago, this moon was home to the human supremacist group, the Black Dragons, though the Faery Wing Corporations assure each visitor that no trace of the organization is left whatsoever.

NATIVES: Insectoid, Humans
AREAS: Morpho, Arctia, Melissa, and various other resort islands for the guests' personal needs.

Lekan, Ciril, Quin, and Clock took the elevator down, and reached the beaches of Nekrim. Quin's eyes widened slightly as she took in the scenery. Sand so pure and white, they almost look like snow. Waters so pure, it almost seemed like they glow. The skies are artificial, just like the ones at the Realta Nua..but far, far bigger in scope. You could somewhat tell their artificial nature from the subtle honeycomb texture behind them. The waves brush against the beaches with a serene, tranquil noise. Ahead are many small islands, separated by the cyan seas, with the Realta Nua itself having docked on one of the bigger ones. There are many people here, clothed only in their swimwear, but the islands are so vast, it did not feel crowded at all.

Plenty of small, handmade, almost primitive stalls can be seen, fashioned from bamboos and wood. Clockwork's eyes scanned some of the stands. Ice cream, trinkets, swimwear..the usual. He whistled, not knowing where to start.

Lekan gleefully looked around at Nekrim's landscape, looking all the happier once the elevator doors opened to let in the sea air. Barring the artificial sky projectors, and of course the many alien tourists, the place looked almost like home. The sound of the waves breaking against the shores could still be heard even over the chatter of the tourists.

First things first, though. Quin needed a proper swimsuit, and Lekan's arm was going to get tired from being used as an improvised covering. Glancing at the nearest stalls, he spotted one selling swimwear, and there were even a couple of cubicles for changing right next to it. He pointed out his find to Quin using his other main arm, although with her keen eyes she might have already seen it.

Ciril kept quiet during the trip but as Lekan and Quin pulled away to find swimwear, he turned to Clockwork. "Clockwork, I need to update you on recent events. Unfortunately, it may ruin your....vacation. " he frowned slightly, "I'm not sure where you where earlier...I also have some information for you...but first." he removed both pairs of sunglasses, squinting in the tropical sunlight of Nekrim, but looking at the Synthetic. "Your captain K2 has been taken in by the Federation. He turned himself in to prevent a firefight. I tried to negotiate his release but.... " he shook his head slightly. "I need to distance myself from the area before I work on his case. Its why I didn't mention it until now. Please do not do anything rash. I'm sure we can come up with a proper plan."

Without pupils, it was not obvious whether or not Quin was actually looking at where Lekan was pointing, but she proved so as she quietly hovered away to pick her swimwear, silently feeling rather amused at the selection - and at the reaction of the vendor as his eyes traveled a little too far down.

Clockwork folded his arms as he listened to Ciril. He made no comment for a while, quietly thinking, as the ambient noise of the beach goers go on behind them. "...Is that so....", Clockwork whispered, in a voice raspier and lower than he usually used. Turning himself in? Didn't sound like the K2 he (Very briefly) knew. Still, he nodded at Ciril, showing his approval. "Alright. I'm not much for thinking, so I'll leave that up to you." Deep down, he felt somewhat annoyed and upset. He was hoping that someone like Ciril could quickly find out about his past, but it seemed like that would have to wait.

Quin returned to Lekan with a cheetah print bikini. "What do you think?", Quin asked as she tilted her head and reached for her chin. From head to thighs she looked very much humanoid, strange headdress aside, albeit with pale green skin. From the middle of her thighs to her feet though, not much was different from her typical attire; featuring insectoid legs with clawed toes.

The spy nodded and replaced his sunglasses. Truth be told, he didn't exactly want to drop the emotional bomb on Clockwork about his past just yet. It was an inappropriate time. He glanced around and noted they were essentially alone, no one in ear shot. Quin and Lekan had gone to try on bathing suits apparently. Ciril smiled a little and raised his communicator to his ear holes. He put his faith in the Federation not being the most thorough, and being able to actually contact K2 directly. "I'm trying to call in a few favors as we speak, Clockwork, but lets check on the status of our companion, shall we?" he dialed.

"Good afternoon, K2. I trust your current surroundings are.... disagreeable. Please update me." he spoke into the device and waited for a response.

Quin and Lekan returned and Ciril looked over at Quin asking for appraisal of her new outfit. Professional as ever, yet smooth, Ciril nodded and commented "the cut and fit is pleasing, but the print is rather daring. A surprising choice, but if worn with confidence, would turn heads in a positive , not negative, manner."
It was funny how despite being flesh and blood, Ciril was more "robotic" than his Synthetic friend, though charming in his own way.

"And you said you looked terrible in a bikini," Lekan said in a playful manner when Quin showed him her new swimwear. He rather liked what appeared to be some sort of camouflage pattern on it, even if said pattern was only there for looks. Now that he was no longer having to use one of his arms for the sake of modesty he could get a proper look at the Genesior's feminine figure sans armour. Just like with the male form, Quin looked pretty similar to a human, asides from the head, legs and skin colouration.

Even the synthetic's friend, Ciril, had something to say about the outfit, and while Lekan wasn't exactly an expert on fashion (or even clothes in general), there were still a few points he found himself agreeing with. "The colour is quite fitting too. Very sandy," the Ondari added happily. He gazed out towards the sea for a moment before heading towards the shore. "Shall we, Quin?" He looked back at the other two. "Are you coming down to the beach too, or have you got other plans?"

Keeton turned suddenly, the voice from the other side of the wall had startled him. Wait he had heard that voice before, of course, it was everyone's favorite horrible monstrosity! Byatis!

"It appears so, what are you doing here?" The pirate asks, desperate to talk to someone. "You know temporary confinement is not all it's cracked up to be. I already got in a fight, and stabbed him with my shiv. Kinda boring, not like when we fought that tank. That was freaking awesome!" Keeton lets out a chuckle. "Oh they took out my eye, that fucking hurt. I am wearing an eye patch now. Like fucking Jesus an eye patch how much more cliche can you be. They are throwing me in the S.H.U for stabbing that dude. So this is are one and only rendezvous, did you come here to tell me that Riley madly misses me? Wait do you know Riley? I don't remember..." Desperate for attention the pirate keeps rambling to the cloaked figure.

"Hey! Who are you talking to in there?!" The guard yells while unlocking the cell door. "Oh its okay, its just my invisible eldritch monster friend!" Keeton's sarcasm is met with another shock baton between the ribs. Keeton falls to the ground, and looks up at Byatis. "See ya friend!" Finally looking into the window, Byatis can now notice the fear in Keeton's eyes as he is led out of the room.

(OOC note: I really appreciate you guys trying to keep K2 in the story, but I want to take a break from him to develop Beatrice.)

----

Beatrice stepped out of the Nua with only a small little green bag, and wearing a bright green bikini that left nothing to the imagination. She was done working, after all it had almost gotten her killed, and almost no one on the Nua knew what she looked like. So she thought it was due time for a vacation. She strolled past the insectoid, squid, protector, and mysterious snek. Hardly caring about whether or not they recognized her or not. Ciril, she thought to herself, he was there when K2 was arrested. She shook her head violently, no this was her time. She found a comfortable lounging chair, and basked in the warm glow of the sun without a single care in the world, she hoped.

Clockwork gave two thumbs up at the sight of Quin's outfit, massively approving. "Ten out of ten! Those curves look amazing on you, girl" He was rather amused at Ciril and Lekan's more formal reactions, though he kept that to himself.

Quin nodded, pleased, at the three men's reactions. "Sandy.", Quin repeated, finding that term amusing for some reason. It seemed like Lekan was not going to make fun of her lack of assets. She then nodded, hovering besides Lekan. She paused for a bit, as she usually does when carefully thinking over her actions and words, then held up her hand in front of Lekan, apparently expecting him to treat her like a lady.

Clock put his right arm around Ciril's shoulder, pulling him close, then gave a thumbs up to Lekan's offer. "You expect me to miss out on the sight of hot green skinned space babes? Never!", he remarked with his usual playful tone. In the back of his mind, he worried about K2, but his cybernetic nanopaste gut told him that he should go for a wait and see approach...for now.

The four proceeded to take in the sight of the beaches. The benefits of advanced technology were great and many, especially in a luxurious place such as this. There was neither ugliness nor plainness here. All the men and women were fit and universally attractive, dressed in equally flattering (and revealing outfits), as they bath in the sun, swim in the waters, and play volleyball. Bodies glistened with sweat and water, hair flowing about in the wind.


They entered the relaxing Beatrice's line of sight, and Clock was instantly drawn by her impressive looks. He leaned and whispered to Ciril. "Ciril! I'm gonna show you how to be a quintessential cybernetic gentleman! Watch and learn~"

He zoomed over to Beatrice, standing over her and blocking out her sun. He gestured with his right arm as if he was flipping his hair....though he had no hair to speak of. He cleared his throat, and blurted out his choice of a pickup line:

"Hey babe!..Is your father an astronaut? Cause your beauty almost sent me jumping to the stars!"

Behind them, Quin suddenly had a mini drum set with her when they weren't looking, with which she performed a flawless rimshot.

Riley smiled at Mosa after the two left. "Last one to the elevator has to buy the other a drink on the beach! Aha" With that she ran down the road passed Mosa. Luckily for her, she knew where the elevators were this time around thanks to her radar implants, and it was just a straight run down the road. Riley hoped Mosa would actually follow. She didn't want to go to the beach alone and he seemed nice enough after insisting she go to the beach in the first place.

Beatrice scoffed as she watched the purple robot stride to her location and proceed to hit on her. Maybe she needed a big ass sign that read 'I AM GAY!' Then again that would probably just make it worst.

"Sorry bot, I'm out of your league." Beatrice says harshly not even turning her head to acknowledge Clockwork. "But if your cute Genesior friend was born a female, you could send her luscious little body over here." Beatrice says, checking out Quin from a distance. "As for you," Beatrice goes back to addressing the protector. "Get lost or I'll lock you up like I did your pathetic friend."

Beatrice's eyes widened beneath her sun glasses. Shit, she had said too much. Her senses started to heighten as she prepared to engage in potential combat. She nervously stuffed one of her hands into the small bag she carried, and grabbed the power knife inside. She was a master of martial arts, but she defiantly could not take on four adventurers all at once.

Well, not five steps taken towards the beach and already there was an unexpected (or should that be expected?) delay when Clockwork decided to go chat up another woman. And even then, it turned out that this Ishkavi woman was only interested in other females, much to the synthetic's misfortune. Glancing back to figure out where that rimshot came from, Lekan did a double take when he saw that Quin had somehow procured a drum kit on such short notice. "...You didn't steal that from anyone, did you?" he asked uncertainly.

He looked back just in time to see the Ishkavi go into what looked like a fighting stance, or at least some sort of defensive posture. Being very aware of what usually came next at this point, Lekan grabbed one of Quin's hands and prepared for the worst. He refrained from bolting immediately; any sudden movements would probably provoke the Ishkavi to react aggressively.

Quin hovered in place, pulling her head back slightly, amused at Beatrice's comment, yet saying nothing. She turned to Lekan, and tilted her head, frowning. "Me? Steal? No, I just conveniently had it stored in my..." Quin paused, blinking twice. Then she whispered, "...You don't want to know."

Quin had no comment at Lekan grabbing her hand, though in her mind, she couldn't help but wonder if Lekan had a very specific fetish or something.

Clockwork slumped in disappointment at Beatrice's reaction. "Awwwh-" But then, he went silent. Dead silent, as Beatrice accidentally slipped something about K2. Interesting. He watched as Beatrice stuck her hand into the bag. "Oh hey, what's that? A magic trick? Hehehhe, Are you going to pull a pigeon- whoa....." Clockwork stepped back and raised his hands when he saw the power knife. He chuckled nervously, and attempted to defuse the situation. Sometimes, the best way to get what you want was through persuasion, not force.

"....Now, now....There is no need for that. I am merely a 5-foot-7, outdated, sharp, pointy, and devilishly handsome android. I am unarmed, and I mean you no harm. And neither do these guys. Right?", Clockwork threw a glance at the others, hoping they would play along.

"You wanna date Quinz? I wanna be friends! I'm sure we can benefit each other, yes?"

Quin glanced at Lekan, curious as to what his take on this whole matter was.

"YOU GOHTTA DEAL!", Mosa bellowed out in his loud, ambigiously-accented voice. He ran towards the elevator with Riley, but despite actually being fast for his size....he was still a very big and unwieldy size, and thus lagged behind Riley. Three seconds after Riley entered the tube-shaped elevator, Mosa stumbled in, nearly smashing onto the bulletproof glass walls. Mosa turned to Riley, and took a deep breath as he punched in the codes to head below. "You are TOO FAST for Mosa!" There was something in his voice, something odd. Despite sounding fierce and brutish, there was a strange playfulness to it.

They reached the beach soon enough, and the sound of peaceful waves and busy beach goers instantly filled her ears. Certainly seemed like a packed day. Mosa shrugged, and turned to her. "Well! Mosa promised." He glanced at a rainbow-colored refreshment stand not too far away, then looked back at Riley. "What do you want to drink? Mosa likes the strawberry bubble tea himself!" He took a deep breath of the air, and wagged his tail. It smelled like a good day, especially after yesterday.

Riley shook a bit when Mosa's hulking form made the elevator rumble a bit as he slammed into the back wall. But when everything turned out to be fine, Riley let out a good laugh.

Finally the arrive at the surface of Nekrim and almost immediately Riley is assaulted by the scents and sounds of the beach. It was all so lovely to take in. Those Mosa knocked her out of the trance-like state with the offer. "Ahaha I was just joking about the drinks but if you insist" She happily followed Mosa along. She couldn't help but think a little of K2 being taken away by fierce sounding soldiers. Though she wasn't sure of his entire situation, he didn't seem bad enough to be sent to jail. Nonetheless, the law was not something she was willing to break to get answers. She focused back on Mosa. "Bubble tea? I dunno what that is but it sounds amazing! I'll try that!" With that, she walked off not too far away to find a table to sit at. She was sure Mosa could easily pick her out in a crowd. She may be blind but she was aware of how bright her hair was. She just hoped she picked a big enough table for Mosa.

Lekan relaxed a little as the synthetic tried to talk down the Ishkavi Beastwoman from doing anything rash. For a moment it seemed like his head was actually screwed on properly... but then came the deal he decided to propose. The Ondari was against the idea, particularly due to the fact that Clockwork hadn't even asked Quin if she was okay with it.

"I'd say the two of you are making a lot of assumptions here," Lekan interjected. "First, you're assuming that Quin here is single and looking for someone." Single, certainly. And also looking for someone, although that someone happened to be an all-powerful demon. "Second, you're assuming that she's even interested in other women, much less yourself." That one was... debatable. As a male, yes, but did that sort of thing carry over with the transformations? "And third, you're assuming that she was born female in the first place." Now that he knew the true answer to, courtesy of Quin him-or-herself.

"Look, I don't know about you but I'd much rather be here for the sun and the sea. How about we just go our separate ways and... overlook this little run-in? I will if you will." He kept a wary eye on the Ishkavi's hand in case she decided to draw her knife...

Beatrice sighed heavily out of relief. She let go of the grip on the blade as she felt her adrenaline rush fall dramatically, and her pulse slow to a normal beat.

"That is a relief." She says turning away from the protector, and looking at the serenity of the calm beach. "I think most people have forgotten what we are here to do. Whether or not we think differently can wait, we have a force threatening everyone's existence." Beatrice let that information sink in to whoever could hear. "I'm not sorry that I detained your friend, but I believe that I misspoke."

Completely done with talking to the group, Beatrice put her head back in her chair and basked in the warm sunlight as she attempted to doze off. However her sleep was rudely interrupted by the ringing of her communicator. She groaned, pulling herself upright in a sleepy daze. "This better be good..." Beatrice listened for a moment, after a a few minutes the Ishkavi finally responded "Contact the Federation." With that Beatrice ended the call.

The giggle that came from Beatrice's mouth started out innocent and childish, but soon formed into a malicious cackle.

"Communicator, intercom microphone."

"Greetings this is Mrs. Schwartz, I have very grim news for all of you. Ozma Knight is dead, He was murdered moments ago by the same man who caused the assassination of his beloved sister, Deunan, and his Father. The price of the culprit has now tripled. I have heard recent events to disrupt or overthrow the people in charge of this operation, such as myself. All I have to say is that we are not enemies, you few who have endured so much, the survivors, you have been chosen by fate to save everything. The murderers, scoundrels, gang members, and yes the occasional good guy. You are tasked with defeating the ultimate evil GEHENNA, do not forget that. Thank you all for your time."

A text document was sent to all citizens of the Realta Nua

"Communicator, audio message to Gelon Deskovitch."

"I saw what happened, you tried to protect the boy. Very noble Mr. Deskovitch. However you are working for a psychopath. A killer, scarred by war such as yourself. All I ask of you is to pick the right side. You have seen what he is capable of, get back to me Gelon."

One last call, "Communicator, contact Federation holding cell for Nekrim"

"I want the boy."

Gelon couldn't believe what he felt and saw on his shield, blood and brain matter. Gelon's robotic hand spammed for a short moment and his pupils were shrunken down indicating he was living a flashback thanks to the circumstances and event that just happened fitting nearly perfectly into his past. Gelon quickly lashed out with a punch directed to graves with his robotic arm which Graves would recognize as a military move but gelon had given it's own twist by holding something sharp between his fingers which would impale and rip open the opponents hand if they grab his fist, but with his robotic hand it were small blades "take him down, defend the lab" gelon mumbled as he fought graves

Quin hovered with a smirk on her face as she observed Lekan. She felt quite amused by how clingy and defensive the ondari can be of her. She found that somewhat charming, and a bit more appealing than Beatrice's borderline-transphobic remark. Without any warning, once all sides finished speaking, she turned around and hovered away, fully expecting Lekan to follow her.

Clockwork chuckled and folded his arms. He then nudged Lekan, whispering, "Wow, bro, she totally ignored you bro." A pause. "Well. She ignored me too, but let's ignore that." The synthetic then turned back to Beatrice and watched her make the announcement. Ozma was dead, huh? Well, irrelevant news for him, though any loss of life was a little sad, he supposed. Figuring out that Lekan would much rather spend time alone with Quin, Clockwork sat down next to Beatrice, and placed his chin on his palm. "So...you're into other women, eh? I wonder....what's your type~?" Seemed like this woman knew where K2 was. Perhaps he could butter her up a bit, get to know her. Who knows, maybe he'd make a friend along the way. Or at least know someone interesting.

It took a while for Mosa to return to Riley, but he eventually did, the vibrations on the ground from his heavy footsteps and sliding tail unmistakeable. Noticing Riley's bright pink hair amongst the crowd of equally colorful beach goers, Mosa walked up to her, and sat on the table with a loud, clunky thud. Thankfully, there was nothing on the table, or things would have undoubtedly fallen to pieces below. If only Riley could see, she would have noticed how tiny the plastic bubble tea containers were compared to Mosa's ridiculously oversized arms. He placed both of them on the table, then cracked his knuckles. "BON! APPENDIX!....err...did I say that right?"

Lekan watched as Quin floated away. "Don't take it too personally; she ignores a lot of people," he told the synthetic. "And even then, she's not much of a talker." He was about to go and follow Quin when he overheard the Ishkavi speaking into her communicator. So there had still been a few raiders on the ship and they even managed to get to Deunan's brother too, the Ondari thought to himself. The people still alive after the attack needed better defences.

"Excuse me, Mrs. Schwartz, was it? I've seen that the ship's repair bay hasn't been getting a lot of use, and I have something of a proposition: I'd like to set up a repair clinic of sorts down there, but I assume I'd need a permit from one of the ship's officers first. If you could help me out then I'd be really grateful. Oh, and if you need my address, it's room number 232, on the lower deck." Glancing in Quin's direction, Lekan saw that she was continuing onwards and close to being out of sight among the other tourists. "I should be going now, but it's been a pleasure, Mrs. Schwartz." He had to move quickly and dart between a few people in order to catch up with the Genesior.

"Sorry about that, Quin. I was just talking business with that Ishkavi. Hopefully I'll be able to get a permit for setting up that repair shop," he said as he drifted alongside her. "And I just might have a position available for security, if you're still interested."

When Mosa plopped down into his seat, the tremor he made made her bounce slightly off her seat. Riley could only wish to see just how BIG Mosa was. She giggled a bit at Mosa's words as she reached for her bubble tea. "Ahahah I'm sure its close enough Mosa." She teased as she took a sip. The drink was definitely different! Not only did it have a strong citrus flavour but also chewy chunks. She enjoyed it quite a lot. "Wow this is so good! Thanks Mosa!" She sat quietly as she took a few more sips. "Sooooo... why are you on the Realta Nua? You work there or are you one of the 'warriors' thats gonna stop this GEHENNA guy?" She was genuinely curious. She could tell Mosa was a HUGE beastman but he was...too nice to be a warrior type. Then again, she had no idea who exactly she was talking to. Her tail swished from left to right repeatedly happily. It was a nice day on Nekrim.

Quin nodded at Lekan, hovering together across the beach. "Security is good.", She simply stated. She looked around, admiring the sights quietly, as awkward silence continued to ensue between the two, accompanied by the less awkward and less silent beach goers enjoying themselves.

"Lekan. Do you like calamari?", Quin asked without reason or warning. "....And if you do, would that be considered cannibalism?", she pondered out loud, tilting her head as she watched the sun above.

Just then, Lekan noticed something..or rather, someone...in the crowd. She...almost looked exactly like Quin. Same face, same height, more endowed chest. A sister, perhaps? Or maybe just someone random. It would not be politically correct to make such immediate assumptions.

Mosa lifted his chin and smiled proudly with his eyes closed at Riley's positive reception, while folding his massive arms. "Oh, Mosa gonna stop GEHENNA!", he said with absolute confidence, nodding to himself. "It be good promotion for personal restaurant!" He grinned and slouched forward. "Riley ever visited Mosa's Seafood Services at Nebulon? Mosa named it after his father! And his grandfather before him!....though not his great grandfather, no, no."

Mosa paused, then glanced away and scratched his head, before speaking in a lower tone, "...Of course, Mosa not surprised if you don't know the restaurant." Mosa silently recalled all the times Colt's antics had brought the restaurant problems. Harassments, violence, poisoned food..... Mosa may have been a good cook, but he was not much of a manager or a leader.

Not wanting the conversation to turn awkward, Mosa shook his head and held two thumbs up. "UH. But you should come one day! Mosa give discount to you! Bring family and friends!". Just no children

Riley listened with a smile. Mosa was definitely gung-ho about fighting GEHENNA and his attitude kept her grinning. Fighting a transdimensional being for the sake of publicity was definitely not the motivation she expected to hear. Mosa's Seafood Services...she had definitely heard about it when she worked briefly in Nebulon. "Oh! Yes I've heard of that place. I just never had enough cash to eat out, so I had to stick to my priorities rather than my preferences." She also did know a few of the rumours around the restaurant but she held her tongue, afraid she might open some old wounds.

"Well...if you get whatever was wrong all sorted out, I'll drop by! Though I'd probably just be me going. Don't have much of a family, haha." She didn't want Mosa to dwell on that point so Riley slurped up the rest of the cold bubble tea and crushed the plastic cup with her metal hand. "HAH! So! Uh! What should...we uh...do next?" She inquired.

The booming sound of the ominous was back, then suddenly all her senses were overloaded with the comet headed straight for Nekrim. The only thing she was able to register was Mosa scooping her up and running. "W-whats going on!" was all she could say, unsure if Mosa could hear her. Suddenly they were both engulfed by waters. She held onto Mosa for dear life. Normally she'd teleport but she was so disoriented by so much going on she would have a high risk of appearing impaled by debris. That, and she didn't want to leave Mosa behind.

Mosa snarled and held on to a large piece of debris with all his strength, eye glaring around, trying to find fellow survivors as the waters assaulted them from every direction. But all they could find were the dead and the destroyed. The choking smell of ash, smoke, and salt water filled their nostrills. Growling to himself, Mosa did the only thing he could do - hang on.

Riley continued to hold on. The heat of the smoke and the cold of the waters were slowly getting to her, luckily robotic claws never get tired. She suddenly felt something hit Mosa's back and landed in her arms. It felt really warm. It was Gelon's flare. She welcomed the warmth but moved it so that it wouldn't burn either of them. She had no idea who it came from since the sounds of rushing waves ate Gelon's words.

--

Byatis and Ophelia shared a worried look as they felt the metal dome detach from the ground, and thy started rolling quickly down the side of the ship. They two bumped into each other several times as the orb made contact with the ground. Several squishing sounds could be heard as blood seeped into the holes. They definitely crushed a few people.

Finally they bounce off Gelon's bubble shield and crash into the debris of a building. Ophelia let the dome shatter, and both Byatis and Ophelia crashed onto the unstable roof. Byatis squirmed but dug his claws into the stone. Ophelia rolled along the roof but stopped when Byatis intervened. He simply returned a grin. "What the hell.." Ophelia murmured as she looked upon the chaos, spotting the bubble shield they hit.

"I guess GEHENNA got impatient. He does that. Feels weird being on the business end of that though." Byatis replied bluntly. They both stared out at the horizon in silence.

As soon as Beatrice heard the voice she tossed the limp body of Graves on the floor, and bolted towards the control room. She was in transit when she felt the impact of whatever had collided with the moon, something so big it had split the Realta Nua in two. She quickly escaped out of the hatch of the elevator before it dropped into water that was quickly rising below her. She started to climb the metal structure trying to escape the coming waters, but her efforts were in vain. She soon was taken by the crushing force of the waters and tossed around like a rag doll as the ship started to slowly sink into the ocean. In one last attempt Beatrice pulled out her sound cannon, maximized the power output level, and started frantically shooting at the walls of the ship. They were shredded like paper form the destructive force of the weapon she had opened an entrance to the captains quarters hallway, and began frantically swimming to the hatch. Once inside, the water was drained from the room. Beatrice fell to her knees and gasped for air as the door unlocked to an undamaged control console, she ran to the computer, and began frantically flipping various switches and typing in different command codes. After a brief moment of excruciating time, the prompt came up on the screen and Beatrice collapsed to the floor in relief. The portion of the ship containing various arms and the hyper-drive were saved thanks to her efforts. Underwater, the broken wreckage of the frontal portion of the ship released a small fragment of itself as the the gigantic husk fell into the abyss below.

The remainder of the ship shoots out from under the water, and flies towards safety away from the collision sight. With Beatrice, and the now revived sentinel aboard it.

Mosa turned to look and wave at Gelon as he passed by, but before he could see anything, Gelon fired a flare into the sky and said something, though the distance and the raging elements around them prevented him from hearing it clearly. "WHAT?", Mosa yelled back, holding tight onto the piece of debris and Riley.

Megahertz, having been trashed about by the waters, was hyperventilating and barely concious when she was rescued by Ryze and Gelon. She was much more delicate than either of the two, and at this point was just going along, her body and mind exhausted.

Seeing Gelon approach, Mosa nodded. The kid? There was only one kid that Mosa saw on board the Realta Nua (for obvious reasons), and thus, he kept an eye out, his head twisting left and right to hopefully find Cubey's bubble shield. Eventually, he spotted the shield, and with it, the few remaining survivors. "Hold tight.", Mosa whispered to Riley, before pushing his body through the water to join the bubble shield.

Looking about, Mosa spotted Kyra, Gerald, and Graves near the bubble shield. Mosa tilted his head, having a bad feeling about them, but at that moment, they did not have much of a choice. Mosa nodded at them, "Howdy", and waited for Gelon to grant them access into the bubble.

Looking around some more while waiting, Mosa's nose twitched, and he turned his attention onto Byatis and Ophelia sitting on a piece of debris. Mosa glanced at the Graves Trio behind him. "Wait! There's more survivors over there!", he said while pointing at the two. Staring back at them, Mosa waved his enormous arm and bellowed, "HEY YOU GUYS!! OVER HERE!!"

Some of them would be able to see a portion of the ship bursting out of the waters and flying away, thanks to Beatrice, though that escaped Mosa's attention.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Well. This was a disaster", an old, gravelly voice mused in front of Beatrice.

Flickering on and off, a holographic transmission from Boris, sitting calmly and sipping a cup of tea. Having lost his everpresent, if low key, smile, Boris glanced out of a window nearby. Eyes narrowed, look grim. He could see the very few survivors having gathered around Gelon's bubble shield. The man chuckled.

"See? I told you Deskovitch would be useful eventually."

Boris placed a cup on his saucer, and took a deep breath, turning back to Beatrice. He looked at her seriously, and sighed. "At the very least, it seems like we have our anti-GEHENNA team."

And soon, Boris' smile returned.

"okay scrap that" gelon said and made an opening in the shield "everybody in and try to make yourself as small as possible, there isn't much room in there" gelon said and let everyone in then watch Ophelia and byatis "you two as well, no one is left behind" he said to them as he expanded the shield to it's max size which gave them a a few more meters of space but still not much "Ophelia can you make an metal dome around the shield that is air tight? We all are gonna need it to survive, whether you like it or not we need each other to survive now" Gelon said to her if he keeps his shield on gave them a less powerful beacon or turn the shield off and have a stronger beacon with a slightly better oxiden generator but still couldn't support them all


(from what I at least get is that the dome they were on has a huge hole in it so that is why I include the oxiden generator if anyone was curious)

Byatis perked up when he saw the big crocodilian beastman call out to them. "C'mon! They've got a bubble shield!" Ophelia just gave him a look. "Not much of a talker are you? Suit yourself." Byatis didn't know what to think of the deformed Illeryian but she did save his life so he felt the need to at least return the favour somehow. Byatis took a powerful leap onto a piece of debris near the bubble shield and without hesitation, slunk inside curling up. "You got room for one more~?" He joked considering there were three beastmen, and a few others already in here.

Ophelia watched as Byatis leaped to the others. She considered not following them, even if the one calling out to them was Mosa, the only person she grew to trust on this voyage thus far. She let out a grimace before leaping after Byatis. Landing on debris as she made her way to them, they would buckle under her impact, collapsing just after she jumped off them. Finally she jumped into bubble shield.

Crowded would be an understatement. She barely had room to move, even if the shield was fully extended. She turned to Mosa, about to address him in thanks but... but... he was holding someone already. Tightly clinging to him was...HER. The one she'd been looking for all this time. Riley. Ophelia was so stunned that Gelon's speech about working together just went in through one ear and out the other. Her thoughts went racing, until finally Gelon's voice snapped her out of it. Without replying she molded thick hull pieces of the Realta Nua around the bubble shield as tight as she could.

This made the inside of the bubble dark, aside from the glow of energy and Byatis's eerie glowing face. Riley, knowing she was safe still kept clung to Mosa, too rattled to move. She listened as she finally realized more people had joined them. Though, the name of one made her heart sink. Ophelia. No, it couldn't be her, she thought. Metal. Oh fuck, it was her. Mosa could feel Riley trembling as she grabbed him even tighter.

Gelon walked over to his other part of his arm and attached it again letting the shield disappear as he sit down "is anyone wounded?" He asked as he turned on the beacon and a shoulder mounted flashlight while waited for a response

Ryze let Gelon go upon the man's request, loosening his grip to allow Gelon to swim away on his own. With the burden relieved from his body, the small body which Megahertz inhabited presented almost no problem to the Beastman as he swam back towards the opening from which he had descended. Despite the removal of weight, struggling against the current presented its own obstacles, accentuated by the countless pieces of flotsam and debris swirling through the tidal forces. The Realta Nua's being alive was amazing in and of itself.

Kyra waited above the hole for Ryze, leaning down to take Megahertz's battered body from the fellow Beastman. Hoisting Megahertz into her arms, Kyra carried her softly away from the hole, worried at the cold that infused the girl. Ryze clambered up into the domed area, gashes across his body slowly pumping out blood in amounts too small to be fatal or hampering. Shaking some of the water off of his fur, he glanced over at Gerald and Graves, a frown forming on his face.

Gerald, having come with a medical kit, was working tenderly on Graves's body. Beatrice's medicine may have saved Graves from certain death but more medical attention was required before he would be safe from death once more. Kyra lay Megahertz down in a position as comfortable as could be achieved before returning to the rest of the mobsters. Crouching down, they all stared at each other glummly. Out of the fifty or so that had originally come to the ship, it was now down to four members. A tear leaked from Ryze's eye, becoming lost in the damp fur that covered his face. Gerald simply stared blankly, going about his work in a mindless state.

"What are we going to do, Ryze?" muttered Kyra. "This ship is destroyed and there is no form of getting off planet in the foreseeable future."

Ryze began to speak but was interrupted from a gasping by Graves. His eyes fluttered open weakly, a sheen of sweat covering his face. "We'll live, that's what,' he wheezed. Hacking racked his body as he began to sit up. Kyra settled her arm behind his back to support him. Gathering his breath, he said more loudly so that everyone could hear, "So what are we going to do?" Part of the ship blasting out of the water caught Graves's eye, and he spied a small object. At least that was safe.




Sentinel, feeling the part of the ship he was on detach from the rest, stopped, tilting his head. A whirring came from his body, louder than normal and the remaining appendages shifted downwards so that his body was resting on his arms and legs. Scuttling forwards quickly, he began to make his way towards the repair bay.

Mosa turned to Gelon, and gave a thankful smile and a vigorous nod as he allowed everyone into the shield. Still slugging Riley on his back, he swam into the shield with no trouble, huddling together with everyone else. The skies were completely dark, as if GEHENNA's influence had tainted the entire moon itself. The beach, warm and sunny just half an hour ago, was now a place of coldness and gloom. Even the enormous Mosa, radiating a considerable amount of body heat, shivered from the cold waters washing over him. Mosa looked up as Byatis landed on a nearby debris, grinning and baring all his massive teeth, silently appreciating the humor even in these dark moments.

Mosa lost his smile, glancing to his back, as Riley trembled. Oblivious to the source of her woes, Mosa patted her gently with his oversized hands, his snout forming a near-perfect upside down-'U' as he frowned. "There, there. Riley safe with us here. Right?". Mosa turned and looked at the others. It was as Gelon said. Like it or not, they were stuck together now.

Just then, he noticed Cubey finally, if barely, speaking, before crying. He pondered briefly whether or not to tell him the truth. But he quickly realized, that child or no, like him, Cubey was a beastman. And if nothing else, a beastman is strong. Durable. Both in body and mind. He would get over it. Lying to him would only make things worse in the long run. Still, Mosa spoke with a low, respectful voice. "Sorry, Cubey...Mo- I...saw Lekan and Quin die. Quin fell into the waters, and Lekan was dogpiled by fruit carts...."

Megahertz stirred on Kyra's arms. Her tentacles' glows were fading. It was unlikely she would survive the night without proper medical attention. Her skin, previously already pale thanks to being a corpse, was now as white as snow.

Inside the metal dome, Mosa's nostrills flared, and his eyes darted left and right, as he heard machinery outside. "Do you guys hear that? Sounds like...Federation engines...."

Beatrice still lying on the floor responded to the now talking hologram of Boris.

"How do we stop something that hurls dead moons at us. We both know I work with statistics and facts, I relay information for you 24/7, and this time the numbers aren't adding up. We have encountered far too many set backs, and now we have a destroyed battle cruiser, and a team full of people that want my head as our only survivors. How the fuck am i suppose to spin that?! Not to mention Project Scorpio which was probably destroyed in the disaster. Whatever is left of the "militia", is inside that big ass metal ball.

Beatrice finally finds her footing and hoists herself up, still shaken by the event. Her bright neon eyes intensify as she forms a fist in her left hand. She turns to Boris, and for the first time instead of seeing a visionary she sees... a coward.

"We should have never came to Nekrim! My job, not counting the mission I have to lead those negligent children, just got a quintillion times harder. I am the one who will have to explain the hundreds upon thousands of deaths, all you have to do is read what I write for you. You are a political mascot Boris nothing more, without me Drakov would be wiped off of Stratevaria! Did you even think to consider what would happen to MY PLAN if I hadn't reached the control panel in time. Do you know how much influence, money, and time we would have lost! I will kill, not capture, kill GEHENNA for what he has done! NO ONE MAKES A FOOL OUT OF ME AND GETS AWAY WITH IT!

Beatrice cuts off the connection to the hologram link, and stares at the window at a peculiar sight. A hovercraft littered with federation markings maneuvers towards the collision sight. The Ishkavi takes a picture, and briefly laughs at what she sees. She places the camera down and enters her own quarters. The picture still left on the camera, displays a white jolly Roger.

Riley continued to dig her fingers in Mosa, clinging to him, absolutely shaking. Oh god oh god oh god, she's gonna kill me, she thought to herself. Ophelia was the LAST person she'd ever want to trapped in a room with....again. She spoke weakly to Mosa. "We're not safe....I'm not safe..." Riley couldn't finish saying what she meant due being so cold from being drenched in water. She just closed her eyes, as if it made much of a difference.

Ophelia just stared at Riley. She was right there. So close. But, she knew she couldn't do anything about it right now. Surely the others would intervene if she did. Ophelia didn't know what to feel, everything was happening way too fast for her to comprehend and work things out. She just wanted to shut down. Suddenly she spotted Mosa comforting Riley! How could he? Did he know what she's really like? A look of betrayal escaped her expressionless face for a moment, then she looked away.

Byatis laid down on his back and curled his limbs in so the others could have a bit more room. So many people survived an attack from GEHENNA! He was actually a bit impressed, knowing what GEHENNA was capable of. He smiled as he looked around at everyone, just listening in to the various conversation. "Ooohh! I hear engines too! Hahaha! Maybe thats a giant engine coming to crush us all and give us sweet sweet death~" He was joking of course. He the turned over to Gelon and Megahertz. "EWW you want them to share a needle? Gross."

For a while, there was no response from Megahertz. She laid there, still as a corpse. And then,

"Wait, WAIT no! Nobody's going to stab me with any needle!", a high-pitched, almost-helium like voice came from Megahertz's head. That voice...it was very much hers, only very very squeaky. One thing was, her mouth was not moving at all when she spoke....

Her lips quivered, and then parted, as three wriggling, glowing blue tentacles emerged, balancing themselves on Megahertz's pale face. Following those tentacles was a featureless, oval body, shining an ethereal blue, just like the tentacles. Shaking itself to get rid off spit and brain fluid, it then hopped up, and floated towards Gelon's side. "Before you panic...yes...it's me. The...real me....", Megahertz -or rather, Alphard- said, with that high pitched voice, and a tone of embarassment, obvious even with the lack of an emotive face. "I'm...I'm fine. Give the others your nanobots, Gelon...and yourself", she nodded, her voice lowered. "I just need to find another body soon..that one's a bust."


Mosa was puzzled by Riley's words. 'Not safe?' technically speaking they did have a very angry intergalactic asshole picking a fight with them, but for the moment....

....On the other hand, Mosa's nose noticed what his eyes did not. Ophelia. Looking at Riley. With what could only be described as an expression of sheer hatred. Mosa had seen many kinds of hatred. And the one on Ophelia's face was not a very nice kind. Her immediate looking away after glancing at him just confirmed it further. Mosa did not know what to say. And this was not the time to say anything. But Mosa's curiosity had been piqued, and he kept it in mind to investigate further later. Once they were all safe....


-----

As Beatrice began her rant on Boris, the smile on his face faded, leaving behind only a far-reaching stare with his penetrating, icy blue eyes. He remained silent as she reprimanded him. Not that he would have an opportunity for a rebuttal anyways, when she cut him off. Boris scoffed and rested his cheek against his hand in his dark office. 'Kill GEHENNA', hmm? For all her harsh words for Gelon, the two were quite alike.

And that, for Boris, was a very amusing thought.

Outside his spade-shaped window, blinding thunder struck against the pitch black skies of nighttime Osenia. At the corner of his room, a glass cylinder stood upon a wooden table. Dark, vile energies hover inside it, constantly reshaping and unshaping itself in a demonstration of chaos; its center a purple, dark as black, and on its repeatedly changing rims, an electrifying red-violet color. Boris turned to the cylinder...


...And smiled.

Listening as the survivors arranged themselves under the dome, Graves smiled weakly, unwilling to let the pain which the hit from Rdiely's mace had caused him show on his face. Despite the injection which Beatrice had strangely given him, blood still leaked slowly from his pelvic area, bones still shattered from the impact. Any form of movement ground the crushed pieces and as such he attempted to stay as still as possible. Upon Gelon's offer, he grinned a bit wider. "I would be much obliged, Gelon. Thank you for the offer." Upon saying that, he leaned back attempting to rest to recuperate his strength in some tiny form.

Ryze, Gerald, and Kyra continued to huddle around Graves, all rather quiet as the enormity of the situation continued to press down upon them. Hearing the sound of engines, Kyra stood and walked over to the edge of the protective dome under which they resided. Placing her hand against the covering, she sighed as well as an android could. "At least there's someone here to get us off of this hell hole."




On the section of the space ship that Beatrice had ejected, Sentinel continued towards a mechanical area, eventually arriving at a destination that suited his needs. Using the frail arms attached to his chest piece, he dragged himself onto a table which would have been used by normal people for repairing items. Grabbing several of the tools resting up there, he rolled off the edge, falling heavily onto the metal floor of the ship.

Dragging his cargo and himself towards pieces of scrap, he arrayed the various tools next to him. Inspecting the metal carefully, he tilted his head before grabbing a plasma torch. Activating the tip, he began the process of repairing his body.

Ophelia, without looking at the group, obliged and a metal strip ripped from the roof of the dome so the group could see what ship was flying nearby. She was still unsure how to feel right now.

Byatis just giggled to himself in response to Gelon. But he noticed the geometric beastman, who had been crying almost nonstop, was looking at him. Out of the colourful cast in the dome, Byatis was in fact the largest and probably the creepiest looking, so he couldn't blame him. So Byatis just stared at Cubey back with his unnerving smile. Though he noticed the Ishkavi in the corner of his eye. "HAH! I'm not the only weirdo here! But thanks anyway for just dumping your corpse in this dome! I wonder how much longer before it stinks!"

"Kind of like you already do?" a quiet voice said. Byatis scoffed, looking around at who said that. Finally shifting his gaze to Ophelia. "Oh! She DOES have a sense of humour!" He jested.

Daniel watch Alphard and smile to her then frown at byatis comment "really glow face? Really?" Gelon asked clearly not amused by his sense of humor. Gelon watched graves and nodded "this is gonna hurt a lot for you since the nanobots are gonna fix you" he said and inject graves with some of the nanobots "megahertz I can't take the shot anymore cause the the timer I have is only programmed for full syringes, so if I do I won't know how long I have" gelon told while a cylinder pops out of his arm "now I know how fragile your kind is so that is where this cylinder is for, it's not roomy but it will keep you safe from harm" he said then notice the light shining in from the removed metal "that is a ship alright we are saved"

Alphard scoffed at Byatis' remark, feeling the lights of the ship above as they hovered closer and closer. "Won't be any less smelly than the rest of the corpses in the waters!" She then turned to Gelon, and if she had eyes, she would have blinked. "Why...thank you for your...kind offer....I'll try not to make a mess, heh.", she chuckled to herself, as she made her way into the cylinder.

Mosa gazed towards the Federation ship, and the feelings of joy rushed through his systems, as he caught sight of two familiar faces - Colt and Preston! He couldn't help but flash a toothy grin. "TOOK YOU LONG ENOUGH!"

Coming behind Colt and Preston, his footsteps amplified by steel heels, was a cyan-colored, boxy-looking synthetic with a clear dark blue visor for a face. Bright blue dots of light emit from various sections of his body. His joints hissed and his servos whirred as he walked down the ramp, looking at each survivor. There were traces of what looked like Drakov Industries logos stamped on his right shoulder and left thigh, now faded and forgotten. His eyes focused on Gelon, and then Riley, and then Graves. He glanced at Mosa, who stared at him and nodded. Cyan-Bullet. An old friend.


Cyan-Bullet's head darted towards the others, and he gestured them to follow them inside the ship. "Come, come! Your comrades need immediate medical attention." With audible yet quick footsteps, he led them into the medical bay of the ship, immediately to the left of the main area. A gunmetal door hissed as it opened from left to right, and they were greeted to the sight of a small room, with three pearl-white pods raised slightly tilted from the floor and held together by hydraulics. Autodocs. Very convenient. Very expensive. Very much pirated, by the looks of the yellow price tag still stamped on one of them.

Cyan-Bullet's square steel fingers tapped into a keypad on the wall, which let out a pleasant beep and authorized the use of the auto-docs. The three pearl-white pods swung open from the middle, exposing a silver-grey interior with a pillow and some metallic fittings.

Mosa allowed everyone else to get inside first, before walking in last himself. He turned his head and focused on a sign near the doorway, naming this particular ship;

'The Iron Shadow'.

Keeton zooms through the terrain weaving through scattered pieces of debris. Behind him are 3 different hover cycles, all following the ruffian towards the federation ship.

Keeton takes out a power knife, and a laser pistol. his face is covered by a black bandanna with a skull's mouth imprinted onto it. One of the men prepares an explosive device and plants it on the door, the other three get ready to siege the ship. The door blows open as Keeton and his men take advantage of the shock to quickly infiltrate the cabin and aim down their sights towards the group.

"GUNS DOWN!" The pirate yells. The small green creature Cubey, the man next to him Gelon, and the pink haired Illeyrian Riley. "Well isn't this one big happy reunion." Keeton pulls off the bandana and goggles he was wearing. The group now able to recognize him, defiantly could notice some differences to the kid.

His left arm was missing in its place was a poorly designed mechanical prosthetic. Multiple scars ran across the Pirate's face, and the optimism and wonder that the pirate had once held in his expression had vanished. A tattoo of a dragon crawled up his neck and arched around to his right shoulder blade. However the thing that most stood out was possibly the eyepatch that replaced his mechanical eye. Tainted with a white Jolly Roger.

"I assume everyone I don't see is dead, so lets get to the point shall we. What the fuck just happened?"

It seems a break from insanity was nigh impossible. Just as Riley had finally began to calm down, sitting on her lonesome, an explosion ruptured the back door of the ship. She jump in her seat, instinctively grabbing the arm of whoever was next to her, in this case it was Ophelia. But with the lack of eyesight, she had no idea it was her. This had caught Ophelia completely off guard. This woman trusted her of all people for protection? After what Riley had done? Did she have a clue? That...wasn't right. Ophelia looked at the intruder with a scowl, ready to absolutely tear him limb from limb. I would've been easy too. Just as she was about to take full control of his poorly made metal arm, he spoke. And she kept quiet, not wanting to move as Riley hugged her arm.

Byatis, obviously getting curious from the explosion and the yelling, walked into the room and stood behind K2. Byatis shoved his head in K2's face from behind and smiled. "K2! My my you've changed in the...day I last saw you! Hahaha, is this a phase?" He cheered as he slowly rested his chin on top of K2's head and hugged him genuinely. "Well anyway, GEHENNA's getting impatient so he slammed a planet at us like a biiiiiitch." He said so matter-of-factly.

While he sat uneasily from Byatis staring back at him, Cubey metaphorically jumped, being startled at the sudden squeakier voice of the tentacle hair lady, who he just managed to see why she smelled so differently from a human, as she revealed her odd shining, tentacled, featureless true form, which despite her reassurance there was no need to panic, Cubey began to panic nonetheless, with some hyperventilating to fit. The cubic beastman left it at that however, deciding to avoid saying anything to offend the tentacle lady person, in case the replacement body in question, would suddenly decided to be him.
He also noticed that Mosa was curious about Riley and Ophelia's odd gazes at each-other, where the smaller beastman began to wonder if he should that the larger reptilian one for telling the truth about what happened to his acquaintances.

His attention was snatched away however, at hearing the man apparently called Graves, accepted the needle from Gelon, the man who was earlier trying to kill him for killing his own friend. A fact that left Cubey utterly bewildered on why a good guy would help a bad guy, especially since they had so much hate for each other a few moments ago. Then again, anything could of been put on hold for what just happened to them. And that bad guy in question was pretty badly injured, it was clear to even Cubey's eyes, backed up all the more by the concern on his trio of friends that joined in the bubble, one robotic lady voicing her relief of the ships arrival. Even though he feared Graves, Cubey could feel a little concerned if he was going to pull through, especially since he wasn't too fond on the idea of being trapped in a bubble with a corpse. Well, technically two if you counted Megahertz's recently vacated other body.

Cubey was then startled a little at the sudden removal of a strip of metal that was around their odd little metal dome, being able to the ship outside to which he couldn't help but grin at the sight of.
"They are here to help us! Yaaaaayyyy! We're saved! We're all okay! We're gonna all be okay!", the green beastman kept chanting and babbling as he stared round at the others, though tried his best to avoid Byatis' and Graves' gazes. His own eyes focused on the sudden opening of the hatch in the ship above them however, where a white furred, rodent beastman and a human in some armored military gear emerge from it.
He was about to pint them out to Gelon, but he saw he was busy injecting Graves with that needle of his, as well as oddly offering a tube that popped out of his arm for Megahertz to sit around in for a while, who gratefully accepted it. Cubey decided he didn't need to let him know as he saw the ship too, and there was no mistaking that Mosa saw them, obviously pleased to see them, seeming even more ecstatic than Cubey was, and also seeming to recognize them.

Behind the two strangers, another emerged, this time a blocky, cyan coloured, visor faced synthetic, with hissing joint and bright lights from random parts of his body, casually making his way down the ramp, nodding towards Mosa, who nodded back in turn. Looks like they knew each-other as well.
The cyan synthetic then urged the survivors to clamber aboard, which Cubey didn't need much convincing of, as he quickly floated himself over to the ship, before shouting down at the rest; "Come one everyone, all aboard! I bet it's safe on here, the big crocodile man is friends with them so their not bad guys! Probably!", before landing shakily into the ship, watching the rest in relief of them wandering inside of the ship too, having his antennas sniff the place out to check none of the survivors got left behind, where he discovered there was another human aboard the ship, most likely the one piloting it.

As the ramp closed up behind them, Cubey couldn't help but nod in agreement to Preston's words, adding; "Home sounds lovely now.", before hearing Gelon speak up, demanding to explore the still functioning remaining wrecked piece of the ship they arrived in, before reluctantly agreeing with; "He's right, we need to check if there's still people here. We just have to. No one gets left behind.", he murmured at the pilot and co pilot nervously, before seeing Gelon check on Megahertz in the arm tube thing. It kinda made Cubey feel weird having seen her turn into something else entirely. Then the pilot himself got out of his seat, giving Cubey a mini heart attack before he realized the ship was flying by itself. Thank goodness for technology. James then asked what the hell happened on Nekrim, to which Cubey could only look down at his feet solemnly, half not wanting to talk about it, and half not having as much as the others to say thanks to passing out earlier, his eyes with a thousand yard stare and a heavy frown forming on his face as his lip began to quiver again.

Before he could say anything or begin sobbing again, there was sudden explosion at the ships entrance, which left Cubey to scream and run behind some survivors as Megahertz began panicking, peering past the fellow recently rescued folks fearfully to be met with the sight of four pirates storming in, demanding fire arms to be placed down now, before their leader wearing a bandanna and goggles moved them away to reveal he was in fact, Keeton, much to Cubeys and everyone else's surprise. He certainly didn't look the same, with his left arm and mechanical eye now replaced, as well as new tattoo on his neck, leaving Cubey to stare at him wide eyed in utter befuddlement as he too asked what happened. The green beastman couldn't fathom on how on earth Keeton managed to change so quickly after he last saw him. He looked towards Riley for help and heard Meghertz's confusion, but was then distracted by Byatis suddenly running over to him and hugging the fellow and explaining GEHENNA's attack.
James certainly wasn't happy about what had just happened, obviously furious at the pirates for invading his ship, demanding that they should lower their weapons, aiming a rifle of his own at Keeton. Mosa definitely shared his anger, as he took a gatling gun out of the ceiling causing extra utter befuddlement to Cubey at what was going on, continuing to stand dumbfounded at Mosa's speech, deciding against opening his mouth at the moment. He felt touched however that Mosa called them all his friend, well, apart from implying they would be food otherwise. Gelon then told Mosa to calm down, only for him to shout at Keeton himself, leaving Cubey even more puzzled. He was weird sometimes. He also seemed to be worried on what they could use to fix the door.

"Ummmm Gelon, we could got to the ship over there, ummm well part of it anyways. They might not want a door or two. I don't know though. Plus we should got look for people to see if there's anyone still alive and help them. Maybe Tep and that robot lady in Ozma's house are still alive! I don't think so though.", Cubey babbled nervously, his eyes having the habit of keep shifting to Graves and his henchmen, as well as Byatis, and back Keeton and his cronies.
"Please no more killing. Too much killing today. No more now. Killing gone bye bye for today.", the mutant man-child added on weakly, seeming to have little hope in the matter being even listened to as he went back to flicking his eyes about.

Keeton didnt move a muscle when Byatis embraced him, still aiming down the sights right at Jame's head. The real question was how had he not died already. The Illeyrian with the fucked up mutated arm she controlled metal, his gun, bullets, and even his new arm was made of such substance.

Keeton decided he liked some of the people on the ship Riley in particular, so he decided to spare them the gunfight. He whistled to his mates, and all four of the pirates lowered their weapons. He fastened the skull bandana on his head once again, as he listened to James drone on about some bullshit about him being able to kill the four. The only reply that Keeton mustered throughout the entire thing was a muffled chuckle when James mentioned something about killing worst then him.

"I think you should be glad that I lowered my weapons, I'll be damned if you think I am going to surrender them to the likes of you." Keeton said with an unrevealed smirk on his face.

The three men behind Keeton raise their pistols quickly as Mosa pulls out a mini gun. "OI! I said no guns!" Keeton shouts to his men. Carefully each one lowers their weapon with all three of them in proximity of the trigger. Mosa approaches Keeton towering above him. "Listen lizard breath I am not your friend, nor do I want to be your friend. However I would say I have "friends" in the same ship we are all standing in. Three of which just attempted to kill you if it was not for me."

The whole fuck you pirate act was getting old, especially when it came a third time from Gelon. At this point Keeton was thinking about killing all of them, but Cubey, who started to burst out whining that too many had died today. Keeton looked around the room one last time. Faces of the strong, the survivors, and Cubey. Keeton took a deep breath and laid his finger on the trigger he had made his decision.

"Holy shit, you made a huge fucking mess didn't you." Beatrice springs into action with her plasma blades killing all three of the pirates. Keeton turns around just in time to see Beatrice holding her signature hand cannon to his head. He quickly drops both of his weapons. Beatrice rips the bandana from off his face. "My my Keeton, you have changed quite a bit since we last saw each other." Looking into Beatrice's soulless eyes, Keeton spits in her face. "Bitch that is not my na-" Beatrice hits him with the end of her pistol and sends him straight to the floor.

"I don't believe you all have had the honor of meeting me formally, I am Beatrice Schwartz, and you all are what is left to kill GEHENNA. On behalf of Drakov industries I thank you for not dying."

Gelon left the room as Beatrice had taken care of their little problem, as he left the room he grabbed the nanobots fabricator from his back pack "megahertz can I ask you a favor? It's helping me inject myself or inject me if I go into shock, if you at least can do that in your current state" he asked her and sit down in the cargo bay not wanting to disturb anyone if he went into shock and he didn't doubt about being found by their saviors "if you can't, well let's hope that the fabricator is done before I do"

Mosa didn't move a muscle as K2's friends pointed their weapons at him, though he gave out a deep snarl when K2 flat out refused his offer for peace. Despite this, he didn't do anything, glancing at Cubey's direction instead, and slowly calming down. The manchild softened Mosa back greatly, and he stepped back from K2. Just then, Beatrice arrived and figuratively dropped a bridge on all of K2's friends. Mosa blinked twice at how quickly it occurred. His head followed as Beatrice cannon-whipped K2 and ruined his dramatic entrance. Finding it oddly and darkly funny in a way, Mosa decided to snark a bit. "..Guess you run out of friends now."

Mosa then looked at Beatrice as she introduced herself formally. Mosa placed his hands on his hips, and nodded. "Mosa's name is Mosa! Pleased to meet you. Don't mind the whole on the ship."


Megahertz stared at Gelon inside her tank with concern. Feeling bad, she took a while to formulate a response. "...Ummm...Gelon, I am so sorry, but..I am all....tentacles...right now.", she raised two of her tentacles, each of them less than 0.1 centimeters wide. "I don't know how much good I would do..."


Mosa turned and gave a thumbs up to James, grinning and baring his oversized teeth. "Mosa can't agree more. Megido is a long way." He stared at Beatrice, and tilted his head. "..Maybe you can help out? We need to fix hole blackbeard just made...."

They would have to find a way to shield the ship against Megido's deadly atmosphere, as well. The Realta Nua was installed with state of the art technology for that purpose....but most of it was already underwater.

Mosa spun and walked over to a terminal on the wall, stuffing his oversized gatling gun back to its hidden compartment in the ceiling along the way, before pressing some buttons. "We gonna need extra hands patching everything up and getting ship ready to go too! Who here can and be willing to help?"

Gelon nods "okay I can understand that but I can give you control over my robotic arm, it might be a bit clunky at first but it shouldn't be very different then you...controlling a body, sorry if that sounded rude" he said obviously weakening from the delayed nanobot shot. As they got in the hangar Gelon grabbed his nanobot fabricator and energy converter from his backpack and set it up then put the needle he used on graves in the machine, I immediately show a time it would take to finish about 25 minutes, just a large enough window for him to inject himself "5 minutes left before I'm too late, seems like you ate lucky megahertz" he said then sit down with a sigh

Ophelia kept on her annoyed sneer as more things just happened all at once. Suddenly that Beatrice woman came out of nowhere. She had a habit of doing that. Ophelia took note. She scoffed under her breath and stood up. "One moment." She said through her teeth and headed towards the hull breach, unflinching, not looking at anyone directly. Riley let go of her arm once she realized who she had clung to. She sat in silence. Only two things in her mind. One, surprised Ophelia hasn't done anything to her yet, and two, disappointed in K2. She remembered him telling her he was a pirate but she still thought he was a nice guy. Not anymore apparently. Upon hearing Beatrice's voice, she tensed up again. Just the sound of her cocky attitude made Riley uneasy, so she kept to herself.

Ophelia, now standing in front of the hull breach held out her untainted arm and the metal around the breach twisted and warped until it was once again, sealed off. It was thinner than the rest of the hull but it would have to do for now. Quietly she walked off on her own somewhere into the ship.

Byatis was cackling at how K2 went down so fast after his swashbuckling entrance. He was practically rolling on the floor. "Ahahhaha! Sucks for him!" Byatis playfully sat up like a dog and listened in on everyone's conversations.

After a few tense seconds, Cubey sighed in relief as Keeton whistled for his companions to lower their weapons, seeming relax himself at least a small change in the criminals that were boarding them, but the even more cybernetically enhanced pirate still didn't speak any more friendly to James, as he tied on his head band. Much to to Cubey's disappointment and worry, there was more hostility as the three goons raised there weapons at Mosa and his chaingun, while Keeton had some more harsh words in store, Mosa snarling in turn, but seemed to back off a bit after Cubey's rant.

Before thing could go even further, no doubt with plenty of laser fire involved, Beatrice suddenly leaped aboard and almost instantly slayed the three underlings of Keeton as soon as she appeared with her plasma blades, causing Cubey to scream as she aimed her hand cannon at Keetons head, who after they both had a less than polite exchange of words, was struck to the floor. Beatrice then gave a short introduction to the survivors, as well as announcing they were the ones chosen to take down GEHENNA. Once again with the familiar feeling of being dumbstruck, Cubey looked for Gelon for help, but it seemed he left the room shortly after Beatrice killed the three pirates, which probably also meant Megahertz did too, due to being stuck in a tube on his arm.

He saw James was just as puzzled as he was, but recovered quickly as he asked if anyone could fix the hole in his ship and seemed to be readily on-board with the idea of eliminating GEHENNA, as Mosa mocked Keeton's allies' sudden death to their boss. The colossal reptile beastman joined in the conversation between the Drakov industries representative and the ship's captain, introducing himself loudly and cheerfully to Beatrice, before agreeing on fixing the hole quickly asking if anyone wanted to lend a hand as he returned his gatling gun in it's place, while Byatis laughed at the deceased comrades of Keeton.

Beatrice suddenly then tied Keetons hands before kicking him in the stomach, which made Cubey wince, before throwing some more harsh words at him, where Cubey just realized something didn't add up.
Did she just say that the pirate was in prison for a month? But it hadn't even really been a day since he was taken away by the federation, and somehow he changed into this much meaner and more cybernetic version of himself. Beatrice also said something about treasure and the federation being the ones who hurt him, which made Cubey all the more confused, since the federation were supposed to be good guys right? What had happened to that pirate and where was he? Cubey could only wonder as he saw Keeton stare over at Riley miserably as a single tear fell down his face. His train of thought came to a halt as Beatrice announced she had some kind of drive thingy for James to use on his ship, and that she would fly most of the survivors aboard what was still left an functioning of the Realta Nua, though not without insisting that Graves and Keeton travel in James' ship, and announcing she was going to start on some upgrades for said ship.

A sudden wash of feeling left out suddenly came over Cubey, deciding to give his own voice to the situation.
"I'll help with the fixing! I just don't know anything about repairing ships or large holes in things or repairing anything at all! But I can make things float and stuff!", Cubey cried out suddenly with some amount of cheer, though still looked rather miserably and fearfully at the corpses of Keeton's fallen companions. He then watched as Ophellia walked over to the often mentioned elephant in the room, or hole in the room to be more accurate with confusion as he looked over to Riley, who seemed just as befuddled and uneasy as he was, though it seemed not just at Ophellia. His confusion switched to amazement as Ophelia suddenly crumpled the ships metal to seal of the hole entirely, that Beatrice quickly leaped out of just before it closed.
"Never-mind, the scary lady mixed it!", Cubey shouted out, before clapping and adding; "Good work Ophellia! You have cool powers!"

Cubey's attention to spectacle was diverted when he saw Keeton ask about someone called Clockwork, undoubtedly another victim in the terrible catastrophe brought on by GEHENNA, unless he was one of the survivors aboard Beatrice's ship, if there was any. Cubey really hoped so, and some hope would be nice right now. He tottered over to Rilely for a second with that though still in his mind before asking quietly. "Ummmm Rilely right? Do you have a pen I can borrow? Pretty please?", before looking at his feet nervously and reaching in his pocket for the fruit carton that Deunan signed.
