Description

Theme – Scarecrow Theme

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

Age: 56

Gender: Male

Race: Human

Alignment: Lawful Neutral

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


Physical Description: A thin, gaunt Frenchman, Auguste Perrault always stands straight up and doesn’t move very often when talking to others. Wearing thick glasses and wielding an icy stare, Perrault’s features have often been described as “cat-like”, both letting him lure in patients and assure them that he is always in control of a situation.

Personality: Perrault tries not to let much of his own personality shine through, but being a Frenchman, he can’t help being smug. He enjoys using his knowledge of the psyche to get into the heads of other people and freak them out, both before and after they realize how deeply he has affected them.

History: Dr. Auguste Perrault graduated at the top of his class in the finest French university, and quickly went on to become an army psychologist, talking to patients who may be suffering from psychological defects due to the heat of war. Rumors spread that he was manipulating them into committing war crimes overseas and terror crimes back at home for profit, but nothing ever came of it. He was also suspected of being one of the members of Majestic, but even though he was able to talk the White Platoon out of murdering them he was still captured and held for questioning. Since there is no proof he has committed any crime, it’s only a matter of time before Perrault goes free again.

Equipment: Perrault needs no equipment beyond a clipboard and a pencil.

Abilities: An accomplished psychologist, Perrault can get inside the heads of men and subtly manipulate them as well as any mind control.

Other: Anyone trying to get information out of Perrault must tread carefully – as a master psychologist and negotiator, he is practiced in getting what he wants and giving nothing away.

A guard goes up to the gaunt businessman's cell, flicking the switch to make the wall transparent.

"It's your lucky day, Perrault," said the guard. "You're getting out."

The sound of "Ride of the Valkyries" and screaming fills the air.

"All due respect," said Perrault. "But I think I'm safer in jail."

As the nanite bombs stop, a prison bus arrives to pick up Perrault and drive him away to parts unknown. Meanwhile, a UFO parks outside and Ramses, dragging along a snared and struggling Alex, exits into prisoner processing, where Torgue and Moxxi are being... well, processed. Inspector Crane enters, leading Andy, Kaia, Nankoro, Adel, and Riley past prisoner processing, since they aren't under arrest for anything, and straight to an open interrogation room. Guards follow them, dragging Quintus' unconscious body into prisoner processing. Crane doesn't even look twice at the prisoner processing room but anyone else can look through the window and in if they so desire.

Andy's too busy trying to keep calm to even look to his side. Kaia did get a glance, noticing Alex. Though somewhat alarmed by this, she'd rather not raise a ruckus over it.

Dawn arose and Killian stretched awake, slowly grasping onto his cane and getting out of bed to prepare himself for an early morning interview. The people of Sanctuary wanted to know what was up with the experimental nanites of Killian's design that were dropped on the city the other day. So Killian took the time to set up a conference with several news stations to explain his situation.

Auguste Perrault, meanwhile, is already up, having spent little time sleeping. He called up Killian during the night and set up a plan for his day, which involved an early morning interview/demonstration, with Perrault as assistant, and followed by a swift departure from Haven. He didn't give a reason why, but Killian knew always to trust Perrault's judgment.

An hour or so later, Killian and Perrault arrive at a makeshift hospital room/soundstage, where Killian's secretaries (recovered from their traumatic experience), a few doctors, and several news crews already are.

"Less of a crowd than I expected," said Killian.

"Exactly as much as I expected," said Perrault. "With a high-profile execution like the von Koopas'."

Killian just smiles and steps onto the soundstage, waving to the crowd, as Perrault follows him, not even looking at the cameras.

"Good morning, people of Haven!" said Killian. "And welcome to the official demonstration of Killian Co. Brand Nanites! I trust you're all familiar with the unofficial one..."

The reporters laugh - not loudly, since it's a bit too soon, but enough to make Killian not feel uncomfortable.

"So I'll make this brief," continued Killian. "You see, these days there is an unfortunate rise in superhuman crime. Uldritch's attempts to rectify it with the Superhuman Registration Act have become unpopular with many superhumans across this great planet, and I suspect that superhuman crime will only rise in protest of this act. But it is not the lawmaker who suffers because of this crime, no! It is the common people, who do not have the power to fight back! And so... I offer you these nanites, to give you superpowers, to give you that chance!"

The gathered crowd cheers.

"And how do you get these nanites, you might ask?" asked Killian. "Simple! You report to a hospital, or a registration center, anywhere in Haven, though I plan to branch out to other continents later. Once there, and after paying the fee, you fill out the Registration form as per law, and you get two injections - one to inject the nanites and one to stabilize them, to synchronize them with your body, as it were. Of course, these nanites are still being developed - soon you might need only one injection!"

The crowd mutters amongst itself.

"Now, I wouldn't make these claims without something to verify my claims," said Killian. "So here to demonstrate how easy the process is is my friend, Dr. Auguste Perrault!"

The crowd applauds, but Perrault doesn't react. He just sits in a chair and holds out his arm. The doctors cuff it to reveal a vein.

"Now, as you can see," said Killian, pulling out a certificate. "Perrault has already filled out a Registration form to speed up this demonstration."

The doctors inject Perrault twice - once with nanites, and once with a stabilizing agent. They then uncuff him from the chair and Perrault stands... then hovers in the air. Then the chair hovers along with him.

"And behold!" said Killian. "Control over gravity made easy!"

The crowd applauds again.

"Now, I'll be taking a few questions from the audience," said Killian. "But only a few. I've got a plane to catch."

"Mr. Killian, with the harsh opinions you've expressed on super-powered beings in the past, it's quite a bit of a turnaround for you to be providing the technology for anyone to gain powers." remarks a reporter. "Why the seeming change of heart?"

"We hold these truths to be self-evident," recited Killian. "That all men are created equal. From the declaration of independence. Of course, those who wrote that weren't aware that, with an onslaught in the coming years of 'chosen ones', super-powered individuals granted powers for no particular reason, or that have those powers and lord them over people who don't, that they were wrong. Not all men are created equal. One of the most powerful, most well-known sentences in the English language is a lie. I found that out firsthand when the super-powered terrorists known as the White Platoon broke into my house, then broke my leg, demanding information on an organization that I knew nothing about, which later turned out to not exist. They were eventually punished, yes, but for months, my attempts to contact the authorities were in vain - 'they're superpowered', they told me. 'We can't do anything about them,' they told me. So I began development of this technology to right one of the greatest injustices of our time. Not all men are created equal. But I intend to give humanity the tools to fix that."

After a few more questions, mostly about how much the serums will cost and whatnot, Perrault clears his throat.

"I'm afraid that's all the time I have," said Killian. "It's been a pleasure."

Killian and Perrault, followed by Killian's secretaries/bodyguards, head out for Eden airport.

"I still don't see why we have to head out so quickly," said Killian quietly, once the reporters were out of earshot.

"This decision will make you unpopular amongst superhumans," said Perrault. "It would be safer out of Haven than in, given how many attacks there have been here recently."

Perrault makes it clear that discussion is over as the men (and their women) board a plane, which flies out for Fantasma.

Jagger's phone got a livestream news update.

"This just in: after a failed negotiation talk with the leaders of Coronach, the government of Haven has carried through its intent to attack Coronach. The reasons for doing so are a recent attack by what seem to be Coronach airships using bombs - filled with nanites that were being developed by a branch of Adriel Killian's corporation, but stolen - and the possibility of fugitives that were once members of the White Platoon lurking within their borders. The initial missile has struck the Bacaina Shrine, an ancient barometer of the world's life force, reducing it to - wait a minute...Wh-What's that mist? And...what are those...those bugs coming from it?? Uh...it...seems the attack has broken something inside the tree, and now this black mist is shooting out from it! I...I don't know what it means, but...!"

". . ." Jagger was quite irked about the attack, but somewhat worried about the aftermath. "This...is not good."

Killian gets the same news update.

"Oh my..." said Killian. "How tragic..."

"It's war," said Perrault. "People die. Such is life."

"Don't you mean 'c'est la vie'?" asked Killian.

"I speak English," said Perrault. "I don't have to say French phrases even a third grader would understand."

Killian and Perrault head on to the Shafton Research Institute to conduct an investigation of their own.

Another article came up on Jagger's phone.

"This just in: once again, the rogue mercenary in blue armor strikes. He was recently seen in Skyscraper Range, attacking and brutalizing Grimm, a rising terrorist in Dream Valley notorious for tainting the very ground near his feet. Rumor has it that beforehand, he was undertaking some shadier tasks in areas beyond the public eye. After the battle in Skyscraper Range, this mercenary proceeded to Sanctuary, where he picked a fight with several of Haven's police officers. Unfortunately, he brought all of them to their knees with some form of aquakinesis, thought to be from his armor. Indeed, this is a dangerous weapon he wields...The questions on our minds now are these: who is this man, and where did he get such unauthorized weaponry?"

"That...psycho..." Jagger muttered to himself. "Came out of the shadows, has he?"

Killian doesn't get this article, suggesting either he's not subscribed to that particular section of the news or doesn't think it important. The two businessmen continue their investigation of the Shafton institute, finding out just as much as Jagger while being substantially less rude and accusatory.

Meanwhile, Ganymede heads out of the prison, heading back for the Core Embassy.

As Jagger proceeded with his patrols, a Minil fluttered by his head. Another flew in front of his face, making him brush it back (rather annoyed, at that). It wasn't long before that Minil rushed at Jagger, who, in response, ducked its lunge and got on the defensive.

"What - ? Friggin' bugs are acting up today!" Jagger commented.

Then, the Minil in front of him transformed, becoming a quiet monochrome version of Jagger. Gazing at Jagger with its black/white eyes, it gave a cold smile as it prepared to fight him.

"...So you're here to cause trouble, are you?" Jagger said, getting into a battle stance himself. "Well, that's not welcome in these parts."

Jagger clenched his fists, which sparked up. In response, Minil-Jagger...threw Etherballs at the nearby buildings, causing rampant damage!

"(!) Hey - !" Jagger responded by rushing in close to Minil-Jagger and striking it into the ground with a flying axekick.

However, the Minil wasn't done - it aimed a hand at Jagger and blasted him back and across the ground with an Ionic Flare attack. Somewhat charred, and slamming against a lightpost, Jagger regained his composure and saw the fake approaching fast, then leaping into the air and hovering via Magnet Flight. It was about to deliver an aerial assault.

"I don't think so!" Jagger said, jumping above Minil-Jagger's electric pulse attack and trapping it in the zone of Ionic Freeze, the resulting flash-freeze solidifying the imposter and sending it falling to the ground, where it shattered to bits (which promptly vaporized).

"That...was definitely weirder than normal," Jagger muttered to himself, brushing off his gloves. "Where are they coming fr - ?"

It's then that he remembered that bug wasn't alone! There were more Minils flying into Shafton, assaulting people to take their life force. Many panicked and hurried to whatever shelter they could while swatting the bugs back however possible. There are several casualties in just the first few minutes!

Somewhere else in town, the sound of things getting frozen is heard...Jagger decides to check this out while seeing about any civilians on his way.

Adam stayed in the ice cream parlor with Umbrella in response to the situation.

"Well, this stinks..." Umbrella moped. "Is it really no safer in Haven?"

"I...can't confirm that at the moment," Adam said, "but don't worry! I won't let those...whatever-they-are get near you!"

Ganymede does his best to fight off any bugs near him, either by roasting them with fireballs or crushing them with boulders.

Granth was fighting off Minils, striking them with hand-to-hand combat and freezing them with his icy psionics. Jagger arrived on the scene, striking a Minil (that was sneaking up on Granth) with an Etherball.

"(!) Jagger. You seem well," Granth commented. "Though...troubled."

"Yeah, I'd rather not talk about it," Jagger said. "And might I say, these bugs are NOT improving my day!" He joined Granth in fighting off the Minils.

"They...emerged from the corpse of Mt. Moon's key," Granth replied.

"Mt. Moon's k - ? Wait, are you talking about that legend about the destroyer?" Jagger reacted.

"The same. Though I doubt anything could have stopped that army from attacking it...Their view was impossibly black-and-white."

"Sounds like those idiots are begging for a black-and-blue makeover...!" Jagger growled while tearing through Minils with Ionic Flares from his palms.
