Male

Appearance Description
At first glance, he looks like a Yakuza thug. Looking closer you realize... he looks even more like a Yakuza. Taekzo has an appearance of someone you don't want to mess with. He is always wearing his shades, but you can see the scars peeking out from behind them. How he got them is a mystery to everyone; in fact, all of him is a mystery, no one knows who he is in the streets. His shades are there to hide the terrible scars over his eyes and the fact that he is blind. Takezo prefers dark colors and can be seen wearing only shades of black and grey. He is always wearing long sleeves or a jacket and gloves, which isn't out of the ordinary because the temperature in Brightside is normally cold due to the artificial climate. His disheveled hair can get very long and messy, but he maintains hygiene believe it or not. Being on the streets for all his life, Takezo knows to always have a poker face or a scowl when dealing with strangers, and even friends.

Has a modified right arm.


Armor/Clothing
Takezo cannot see at all, but his shades give him the ability to do so; his surroundings are processed through advanced signals similar to echo location and is projected directly onto his eyes. The technology may not give him the ability to see colors or details, but it can process a bullet flying towards him at any speed. The range of sight is only up to medium range.

Takezo's biologically enhanced arm provides him with full body armor that enhances his physical abilities, offers protection, and provides some perks.

Image

Skills/Abilities

Ultrasonic Sensors- To compensate for his blindness, Takezo wears shades that emit ultrasonic waves to develop a 3D visual model of the surroundings; the images are then projected directly onto his eyes. The system is also able to provide bullet trajectory lines if the gun fired is within range of the shades. He is able to see enemies on the next floor and even behind cover, as long as they are within range; effective range is around 5 ft. Allie's are also programmed to be recognized by the system.
Image

Master Swordsman-Before becoming blind, Takezo was a 5 time Lower Brightside Freestyle Combat champion. The tournament pitched fighters of all different styles and allowed usage of weapons. Takezo was trained in a dojo extensively since he was young, but has years of street fighting experience. After he went blind, he trained himself to be able to detect enemy movements through other senses; blindness was only a minor setback.

Atom sharpened blade- When still working for government labs, Takezo developed a method to produce blades that are one atom thin for the sake of advancing biotechnology research. The lab was destroyed before he was able to demonstrate to his superiors his discovery. Thanks to his training, Takezo is able to effectively and accurately cut things with the blade which he transferred to a sword from a scalpel. The blade is so sharp it is able to virtually cut through any material and then put ti back together as if it had not been cut in the first place. The major downside is that these blades wear out extremely quickly and the sharpness drops; to counter this, Takezo carries additional replacement blades.

Bow-This 1 ton draw strength bow is only usable for Takezo due to his modified arm which grants him monstrous strength in the right arm. Takezo has various types of arrows in his quiver: Regular, explosive, and grappling. A full draw could pierce through 3 enemies. Due to the limited range of his echo location, Takezo can only hit targets in his field of vision.

Mutated Arm-Developed by a team of scientists including him and his wife back when they still worked at the government lab. The arm gives him enormous strength in that arm supported by the body armor which it provides. The arm is able to absorb and store a certain amount of target's energy upon touch, and project it out in the form of a higher than normal EMP in the form of a blinding light which disables all technology, even his own; the arm is biologic and is not affected.

Hybrid Protection armor- Not only does it enhance his physical abilities, allowing him to run faster, jump higher, and hit harder; the armor itself is only low physical protection at most. At the cost of energy, the armor gives the use a protective field that protects all of the user's body from both forms of attack. The shield can only protect the user from damage from damage proportional to how much energy the user has.

History
Takezo had a natural skill for the sword since he was young; since his family was middle class, they were able to further his talents by sending him to a well known fencing dojo. There was soon nothing left to learn and he left to learn the way of the sword on his own. Along the way, he focused on his studies more, because he knew that learning how to wield a sword wouldn't get him very far in life. Around age 20 he soon employed straight out of college by the government to work on a new project: Project Devil. The Research was an attempt to move away from the world's center on energy technology. Research went smoothly and Takezo married his college sweetheart who also was recruited by the government into the project. At the time he was young and naive and believed he was really making the world a better place. His life and the research was running smoothly until that faithful day...

Alarms went off and the researches believed it was a drill, they quickly made for the exits not expecting what was on the other side. Government troops were there waiting for them with guns. The scientists were gunned down without mercy. Takezo and His wife were the last to leave because they ran back to retrieve the project they were working on. The gunfire caught everyone by surprise and no one lived except for Takezo. His wife had shielded him from the gunfire and they went down together. Her last words were...

"Save the world for the both of us... I'll be by the Goddess's side now."

He had to live for her, so he set his wife's body down and rushed at a nearby Swordsman and took him down, stealing his sword and fighting. Takezo put up a good fight before a grenade exploded in front of him and the shrapnel blinded him. As he lay on the ground, and enemy cut off his sword arm. Before the enemy could finish him, the Resistance forces came and fought off the enemy...

The rest of what happened is unknown, Takezo disappeared for a long period of time.

Takezo woke up to the sounds of around 10 alarms going off, none of them were his; he had no need for one. Since he was blind, all his other senses were enhanced to compensate for his lack of sight. Takezo could hear every noise below and above, he could feel the vibration of the floor as the people of his apartment complex woke up to begin their lives. There was not much to do today other than participate in a very important espionage mission for the Resistance, which was to take place tonight; he could of have slept in, but getting more sleep has been impossible ever since he became blind. He groggily got out of bed without putting on his shades that allowed him to see outlines of a once vibrant world; he always performed his daily routine of stretches after waking up before doing anything else.

Takezo had memorized the layout of his apartment and he lived alone, so walking around blindly was no big deal. He went through his usual morning: getting groomed, locating clothes, and making breakfast from whatever leftovers he had from last night. The last thing he had to do before leaving the apartment was to inspect his weapons again. Bow and quiver of arrows. Check. Sword and replacement blades. Check. There was one last thing he had to do before leaving,Hey Mabbel wake up, how much longer are you going to sleep in?" Takezo felt a tingling sensation in his right arm.

"huuuh... HUH? It's morning already? But I'm soooo tiiiired... give me 5 more minutes pleaaaaase."

"No"

"Daddy is so mean to meeeeee" The arm whined in the voice of a young girl.

Takezo ignored the complaints, and equipped his shades; outlines of the the apartment appeared. Since he was not in combat, the images of the surrounding rooms was not shown.

"Brrr...Looks like it's going to be another cold day, I hope you're wearing gloves for me daddy."

Yeah yeah.

Takezo slipped out of the apartment and closed the door behind him, the electronic lock activated; he put in ear buds and selected a good song to start off the day as he walked down the stairs into the bustling streets of lower Brightside.

It was neglectful of Takezo to shut off one of his major senses with music, but he felt lazy today, and left the work to Mabbel, as he just hummed along to the tune on his music player. The city was noisy as always with people going in all sorts of directions with a purposeful destination in mind. His destination was the Fujiimatsu Mechanical factory, where he will infiltrate and locate any possible information related to the superweapon. Taking the monorail would allow him to easily get to the factory, but the thought of being crammed in with all those people made him nauseous; he would be able to hear all their voices clearly and it gave him a headache.

Takezo was suffering in the stuffy and crowded train, as his music could only drown out some of the noise surrounding him; it's probably a good idea to invest in a pair of noise canceling headphones. Mabbel was being awfully quiet, probably processing all the notes provided for the mission. The train was extra crowded today due to the other monorail line being under maintenance for the day; people were being crammed in like a can of sardines. The train began to move forward suddenly and out of the corner of his eyes he saw a outline of a person falling due to the sudden lurch. Without thinking, he reached out and grabbed her arm before she could hit the floor. Not wanting to deal with the person's gratitude, Takezo slipped away into a different part of the car.

"Awwww that was nice of you daddy, did you eat something weird today?" Mabbel spoke up for the first time since they got on the train.

"Yeah that weird noodle shop you begged me to try when you found its website on the internet"

"Heyyyy, I thought it was delicious! Plus you said you liked it cuz it was cheap. Hmph!"

"You weren't awake when I woke up at 3 AM to go crap my intestines out. Want me to tell you what color it was?"

"Ewwww...." Mabbel went silent again."

They arrived at the Fujiimatsu Mechanical Factory stop and got off the train. There was time to kill before night falls, the time of the operation to begin, so Takezo made his way for the nearest cafe to relax for the next few hours...

"Well, so much for everything going as planned."Corbin says to his sister as he watches Corrupt soldiers surround the abandoned factory through his scope. "Attention all Forces, this is Charlie-Juliet-Sierra, Corrupt forces are surrounding the building, I repeat, Corrupt men are surrounding the building, get out of there now people." He called into his helmet's build in microphone as he prepares to take a shot on a rooftop Sniper. "Range is 2.5 kilometers, wind negligible, adjust 3.5 degrees up. Fire when ready." Elena calls out from her view finder as Corbin silently adjusts his scope to compensate for the range and weather conditions, aiming a bit higher to compensate for collision with snow.

Using a tried and powerful technique, Corbin slows down his heartrate and breathing almost to halt, before pulling the trigger between heartbeats. The sniper makes a loud crack, as the bullet streaks through the sky and goes clean through the head of the Corrupt Sniper, the lifeless corpse dropping like a sack of potatoes onto the rooftop. "Target down... Wait, what the hell is going on down there?" Elena says as she signals him towards the factory itself, where a door of light appeared in the middle of the factory, and a strange man walked out, then proceeded to punch a computer and slay a Corrupted Swordsman in close combat. "Well, there's something you don't see everyday..." Corbin mutters as he quickly changes the channel of his comms to a private channel he uses to communicate with one of his friends in the Resistance. "Takezo, things are getting real interesting down there, I just saw a man walk through a random door of light and take out a Swordsman without a scratch. I don't know what the Goddess is going on or who that man is, but he's not one of us and he's sure as hell not one of them." He talks as he lines up and pulls off another shot on a Sniper, dropping them like flies as he moves from building to building, bringing down any Corrupted Snipers he sees before moving down to the men on the ground, clearing a path for the Resistance members to escape the enclosing circle.

Takezo Didn't look up from the computer screen as he scanned the trails of data being projected directly onto his eyes. Everything went to shit very quickly, the operation has somehow been compromised despite the resistance covering up extremely well as always. Perhaps there was a traitor? Whatever it was it was up to central command to sort it out anyways; not his problem, he is only an agent.

Mabbel stopped decrypting the data to say in a concerned voice,"Daddy, enemy soldiers are closing in, they have reached the inner halls of the factory."

"Yeah, it's time to go. Pull up the map and show me the quickest way out."

The map of the factory with a drawn path appears in the corner of Takezo's vision. Takezo collected as much data as he could before unplugging the cord connected to his helmet that was storing the data. There were no enemies in the hallways so he rushed out of the door,"The exit is in... that direction!." Takezo unsheathed his sword and cut a triangular opening in the wall with 3 clean strokes, and entered the next hallway; there was no time to be running around in this maze of a factory.

Mabbel would've have complained how he made her do more work, but she knew the situation was dire and remained silent. She's a good girl.

"Incoming transmission from Corbin, daddy."

"Takezo, things are getting real interesting down there, I just saw a man walk through a random door of light and take out a Swordsman without a scratch. I don't know what the Goddess is going on or who that man is, but he's not one of us and he's sure as hell not one of them."

Is Corbin smoking the good stuff again?

"Alright Corby, I'll keep an eye out for him."


After cutting down a few more walls, Taekzo ejected the the blade from the hilt of his sword and reached back to attach a fresh blade. There were corrupted on the other side of this wall and some factory workers? Takezo decided to wait a moment to catch his breath, and decide whether or not to engage the Corrupted soldiers. What the corrupted soldiers did next made Takezo's blood run cold...

The five corrupteds lifted their rifles and took aim at the factory workers. Before Takezo could respond, the six factory workers were gunned down in a wall of bullets.

Those bastards were killing innocents!

The lines on Takezo's right arm turned from a soft faint blue to a bright neon red, and he could barely hear the sound of Mabbel's pained and trembling voice begging him to do something...

"Dad-....don-.... pleas-.... don-... it...wi-... hur-..m-...a...you."

The childish voice of Takezo's right arm transformed into a growl, and Takezo let out a horrible roar that did not sound like a human's. The roar reverberated down the halls of the factory. The Corrupted soldiers on the other side of the wall did not know where all the killing intent was coming from, nor did they see the blade that cut all three of them pass through the wall as if it was made of air.

Takezo Woke up from the sound of Mabbel's voice.
"Daddy please wake up!! Thank goodness you're awake."

He jumped at the outlines of a room full of factory workers. How long was he out? As if reading his mind, Mabbel answered him,

"You blanked out 20 minutes ago daddy, I piggybacked into your consciousness and fought through the halls and rescued all these people! Be proud of me! Praise meeeeeee. I used all your regular arrows though, you know I'm not good at fighting..."

So that's how he got here with all these people. Takezo looked around around 15 terrified and tired faces, some were wounded but everyone seemed to be healthy enough to run.

Yeah I'm proud of you Mabbel, good job Their consciousness were still somewhat synchronized.

"Yaaaaay I got praised by daddy~"

Takezo got up to address all the survivors, but pain shot out throughout his body. It looks like he sustained some serious injuries to get here; Mabbel really was no good at close quarters combat, but she managed to protect all his vitals. He wasn't sure he would be able to fight anymore today, or even escape.

"Mabbel, come up with directions and explain to everyone how to get to the roof, the extraction craft should be there to pick them up along with the other resistance members if there are any even left alive... uhg," It hurt like hell to speak.

His suit was heavily damaged so he was unable to connect to long ranged channels; Takezo relayed a short message to Corbin.

"Yo, I don't think I'll make it out, but I'm sending some survivors up to the roof for pickup. Keep an eye out for them and tell the extraction crew that there's an additional 16 people."

The com line shut down before Takezo could receive a reply. Oh well He thought. Mabbel wase done giving instructions to the survivors. There was only one thing left to do. Takezo unsheathed his sword with his left hand and raised it above his right shoulder, where Mabbel was connected to him; she did not have to go down with him. Before she could cry out in surprise, he slashed down.

That won't be necessary Takezo.

A blade blocked Takezo's before he could severe the ties with Mabbel; it was vaguely familiar. The blade's owner was a white robe clad figure with it's face covered by a hood. Next to it was a young girl as pale as snow wearing a simple white dress; it seemed like she was the one who spoke to him. The words could be heard by his ears but also appeared in his mind as well... It was a strange sensation, he felt rejuvenated by her voice.

I will lead these people out of here, your task lies elsewhere, my disciple will lead you.

Takezo did not question the girl, even as she laid her tiny hands upon his chest and a feeling similar to a chilly spring breeze filled his body and his wounds were healed.

Go with haste hero of Throst, there is not much time; this entire facility will be engulfed in flames soon.

He quickly lept up and ran after the figure clad in the white robe, in his peripheral vision, he could see the pale girl guide the people out of the room. Mabbel remained silent. After running for a couple of minutes, he saw through the wall that there was a figure running down the adjacent hallway; it was a factory worker. To his dismay, there were corrupted soliders in a room and they heard the worker run by; they quickly exited the room and took aim at the worker. He wouldn't make it if he cut through the wall. Takezo unmounted his bow and notched a grappling arrow in one rushed fluid motion, took a full draw on the 1 ton draw strength bow, and aim at the soldiers through the wall and fired.

The arrow pierced through through the wall and the two corrupted soldiers. Takezo gave a mighty tug on the cord that was connected to the arrow, pulling the soldiers towards the wall; he quickdrew his sword and slashed both of their heads off through the wall in one fluid stroke. The inaccurate sword strike wore down the single atom edge of the blade instantly; it was a fresh blade too, the same one he tried to cut Mabbel off with. The white clad figure stood by silently and unmoving as the whole situation folded out. Takezo ignored it and slashed an additional two times after replacing the blade for his sword. He kicked down the cutout on the wall and stepped through to help the worker who had tripped running from the soldiers; the white clad figure simply passed through the wall.

The white clad figure finally spoke as they were walking towards the factory worker,

I must go now, we have intervened too much today... I am truly happy to see you again Takezo. Mabbel you've been a good girl. I am truly sorry I couldn't see both of you sooner...



Goodbye Takezo, please continue saving the world for both of us. I will be returning to the Goddess now.


Takezo froze in his tracks. The white clad figure began to fade. Memories of that day began to flood his mind as if a dam at one of the Bightside power plants broke.

"WHO ARE YOU? WHAT KIND OF SICK JOKE IS THIS? RACHEL! ARE YOU RACHEL? STOP DON'T GO. SHOW YOUR FACE! LET ME SEE RACHEL ONE MORE TIME."

"Daddy what's wrong!? Mabbel was confused and scared, she had never seen Takezo like this.

The white clad figure turned around slightly and Takezo could see bright red lipstick, like how Rachel used to wear. The mouth was in a sad smile. And then there was nothing, no trace that she existed.

Takezo collapsed on his knees and tears streamed out of his eyes, the cracked helmet did not hide his emotions. It seems as if the Factory worker did not see the white clad figure.

((The factory worker Takezo saved is Adelaide btw. Just in case someone missed it. Corbin had killed the corrupted sodlier in the initial room, and Adeliade escaped, but more soldiers showed up. Sorry if I screwed up anything... I was nearly done with this post before Gaunt posted...))

There was a loud thud, Adelaide sat there for moment expecting the whole sharp pain, then the cliche bright white light. However it was none of those she even took a moment to feel around for a hole through her body, still nothing. When she finally got the courage she peaked out from her hiding spot and found the thing that had stalked her into the office laid face first on the floor in a pool of it's own blood... well she guessed it was blood. Without a second thought she shot up from her spot to try to run away again. As she made it into the hallway again it must have altered the rest of them. She could hear the sound of heavy feet pursuing after her as she made a bee line for the elevator she had come in earlier.

"This is it my luck ran out!" she yelled as she ran, but as she turned to look back.

She heard a guttural growl, then a yell as a man in some sort of armor came in through a hole he made in the wall. Taking out the group of things that had massacred so many like they were nothing. Time almost moved in slow motion as she watched him take one...three, soon every one of the monsters that Adelaide had been sure would be the means of her demise were in a pile of bodies dead. She looked at the man for a moment as he stood there his chest heaving as he tried to catch his breath.

"Oooouch...", she hissed as reached out and pressed her hand on her leg. She slumped down to the floor, looking down at her leg she could see blood pouring from a wound.

"Dammit, that must have happened when that crazy thing shot into the room." Adrenaline had been pumping through Adelaide's veins and she must've not noticed while she was trying to run to the elevator. As far as she could tell it wasn't life threatening. But it might make it a little difficult to get around from that point on.

~"Follow him... if you want to live. Get to the roof, he will save you."~


The voice was like a whisper in the back of her mind, Adelaide was stumped by the voice, but for some reason she felt like she had to do as it said. She watched as the man came towards her. It was odd it was like he was back lit by a bright white light so bright that Adelaide had to put her hand in front of her eyes, she had never seen anything like it. However the light started to subside, the closer he got to her. Then all of a sudden he hit his knees in the hallway. Adelaide gasped thinking he had been hurt, she did her best to pull herself up from the floor, hobbling over to her rescuer. The closer she got to him she could see that... he was crying. Adelaide for some reason could sense that this was not tears of pain, these were tears of sadness and heart wrenching anguish. She knelt down next to him, her leg was killing her but she knew that they needed to move before more of those things showed up. She could hear someone speaking to him through an earpiece. Slowly she reached out and nudged his shoulder.

"Sir... I... I... know you're upset about something. But... we really need to get moving. We have to get to the roof.... I don't know why but I know thats the way out. Please... I know you just saved me and all. I hate asking so much of you, but I still need you... I've been shot in the leg. I can tie it off and stop the bleeding. I just know I would never make it to the roof on my own." She nervously looked around, hoping they wouldn't get cornered like this. "Please, we're sitting ducks here!"

Adelaide sighed looking down at her leg, she took her right hand reached over to her left shoulder looking for the seam on the lab coat she was wearing. She remembered a hole in the shoulder that she had been procrastinating sewing back up. Working her finger into the hole in the seam she managed to make the hole a little bigger, as quickly as she could working her fingers in till finally she could get a good hold of it. Then a few good pulls and there was a resounding rip as she pulled the sleeve off of the coat. She had been taught basic first-aide not only as a child but all employees have to take a crash course when they hired in. She winced and hissed a little when she tied the sleeve onto her leg slowing the bleeding. With a slight sigh of relief she then turned her attention back to her savior.

"So.... my name's Adelaide.... what do I call you other then sir?"

Mabbel was confused to what was going on, but she could feel that Takezo was in a great amount of pain. She didn't know who that person clad in white was, but she did know Takezo was married to Rachel, and she was the one who also created Mabbel. Mabbel had never actually seen mommy before, but has felt her presence, felt her touch, and heard her voice. That person was mommy, yet she wasn't mommy at the same time; Mabbel knows mommy is dead, she died the day Mabbel fully woke up after being attached to Takezo. Mabbel knew mommy had entrusted protecting Takezo to her that day, and today is just like any other day. She pushed Takezo's consciousness to the back of his mind to give him time to recover.

"Hiiii factory lady we just saved!"Mabbel put on a cheerful voice despite her feelings of sadness and confusion.

She was not alone in her confusion because the lady named Adelaide seemed to be extremely confused; Takezo's lips weren't moving after all, so it might've seemed a little strange. Mabbel also noticed Adelly was wounded.

'Heeeeey Adelly, down here! Hiya, I'm Mabbel, occuptation: daughter and Takezo's right arm, and this is Takezo my daddy! He needs a little alone time so I'll be taking over. Oh if you're wondering, I'm speaking from built in artificial vocal projectors so don't be too scared. Oh cover your eyes Adelly!'

Mabbel saw through Takezo's eyes that the ultrasonic sensors picked up a squad of Corrupted soldiers approaching their hallway. She charged up energy stored within her; Takezo had absorbed energy from a nearby outlet on the way here, so they were fully juiced. It didn't really matter if Adelly had her eyes covered or not, no one would be able to see a thing anyways. Mabbel raised the right arm up and a bright white light emitted from the palm that engulfed the entire hallway, blinding the Corrupted soldiers who had turned the corner and took aim. The palm also emitted a powerful EMP that jammed any energy related function within the 20ft radius: guns, lights, sensors, etc. Mabbel was blinded too since everything but her biological functions remained; the effects of the EMP wont last long so she had to get out of there.

"Excuse meeee!"

She had remembered where Adelly was so Mabbel swiftly scooped her up in Takezo's arms, and they bolted down the hallway and turned the corner. Since she had been with Takezo for so long, Mabbel remembered how long each of his strides were; in addition to remembering the general location of everything in the vicinity, she was able to estimate where to go despite being completely blind.

The effects of the EMP were wearing off, but they had lost the soldiers. The first thing to resume functions was Takezo's ultrasonic sensors and Mabbel regained eyesight again. She set Adelly down and said,

"Hurry! We're gonna take a short cut Adelly, you'll need to piggyback Takezo and hold onto him with your entire body as if..."

Mabbel hesitated for a moment.

"...You've never hugged anyone before in your life." Mabbel remembered that she has never been embraced or been embraced by anyone in her life, since Takezo was never the touchy feely type, and generally avoided other people. She felt kind of excited and nervous to find out what a hug feels like.

The the slight hums of the Extraction crafts could be heard outside over all the bullets ricocheting off the hulls.


((Mabbel is the AI that lives inside Takezo's artificial right arm btw))

Adelaide blinked several times in confusion when a child's voice came from the man's arm. It was obviously a little girl who affectionately referred to the man as daddy, after explaining that her name was Mabel, Adelaide determined she was some sort of AI. Her chipper disposition reminded her allot of the AI on her phone Nori, however Adelaide was sure the Mabel was much more advanced. She didn't understand why or how she took over, for he man whom Mabel had said was named Takezo.

"Um... okay.", Adelaide covered her eyes as she was told to do. However, she really didn't know why she had asked her to. There weren't any bright lights the Adelaide could see. But when she uncovered them she watched a group of the enemies sputter out and hit the floor with a thud... like they had suddenly lost power. Adelaide was still in a bit of shock as she was quickly scooped up in Takezo's arms bridal style, well Mabel did using Takezo's body. As they began to run around the corner, Adelaide couldn't help but wonder how and why Mabel had to take over for Takezo. What was so drastic that he would allow the AI to take over like she did? They moved very quickly, faster then a normal human being that's for sure. Takezo suit obviously gave him abilities that made him almost superhuman.

When they had put a good amount of distance between the things, they stopped again. Mabel instructed Adelaide to hop onto Takezo's back and hold on tightly. She nodded doing her best to hop up on the taller man's shoulders hoping she wasn't to heavy. She wrapped her arms around him tightly.

"Mabel..., do you know what these things are that are killing people... I've never seen anything like them before?"

She didn't know if Mabel knew or not, but from the way that Takezo had been fighting them before, she figured that she would have a better idea than Adelaide did. As they grew closer to the roof Adelaide could hear what sounded like some sort of aircrafts. It made Adelaide feel like there was hope they would make it out of this alive, even with the sound of bullets hitting metal she was beginning to calm and feel a little more relaxed.

Her blade remained unwavering as she pointed it up the stairs, ready to catch any of the five knights who may have been dumb enough to give chase. However, the incoming fire faded away. She figured the knights were focusing their attention on the larger vessels that were approaching. She knew that if the knights were smart, they would have one of them keep an eye on the door. The last thing Cordelia wanted to do is telegraph her position again, else it make her actions more predictable. She decided to wait for whoever was approaching that her chi detected.

When she looked back once more, Cordelia spotted a man and a girl when they rounded a corner to ascend the steps to the rooftop access. Cordelia held up a free hand towards them to silently indicate them to stop. Her left hand kept the sword pointed upstairs, away from the incoming individuals.

The first two appeared to be a little girl and a man with some kind of prosthetic arm. Cordelia had never seen technology like this before. This world was very strange indeed, but the monk knew her fists proved stronger than the advanced-looking armour of the knights she had beaten so far. These two did not look like the soldiers Cordelia had fought. The girl was clearly a non-combatant, while the man’s armour looked vastly different. Unlike the bulky armour of the knights, this man’s armour was relatively tight-fitting. Considering he’s escorting a girl, it was safe to assume they were not on the same side as the knights who were attacking the approaching transport vessels.

The second appeared to be some kind of soldier in a suit not unlike the knights, but with a distinct lack of heavy metal plating or circuitry. The visor design was also very different. If he hadn't mentioned something about an evacuation, Cordelia would've thought the third individual was one of the knights.

“There are five knights lying in wait up there,” she told the non-knights, “I can’t reach them with their long-ranged weapons pinning me here.”

She then heard a scream coming from somewhere on the rooftop through the slightly more open door on the roof access. By the Goddess, did the knights hit an innocent up there?

“If you have anything long-ranged, I need at least a full second of cover,” she told the armoured individual who was carrying the girl.
