| Physical Description |
Alice is pretty much as ordinary, look-wise, as a girl can get. She has lightly tanned skin, long black hair and dull brown eyes. One of the only really note worth about her is her stunning smile. Her amazing ability to blend in and go unnoticed got her a nickname from the people at the SWA, the 'Chameleon'. Alice is very plain, but she isn't ugly. She is told quite often that she is cute. Her normal build and frame give her a good balance and ability to maneuver. Alice is supposed to wear glasses, but oddly enough, he shooting is far better without them on. The doctors could never figure out why that was, but they just let it be. She thinks the other cyborgs are far prettier than herself, but she doesn't mind. She loves it when the other girls do her hair, though. She says it rubs some of their pretty germs off on her.

| Personality |
Alice has normal emotions, none are more pronounced than any other. When she is happy, she smiles and laughs. When shes sad, she cries and eats a lot. When she's mad, she pout and goes out to the lake near the SWA's track. However, when she's nervous, her mind goes blank and all her emotions get mixed together. Alice hates it when people are nice to her after she's been scolded or gets hurt. Leading into why she hates fake things. Fake emotions more than anything. She would much rather hear what she needs to improve on than what she did right. Alice is is always hoping to get better, but knows when not to push
herself. Unlike most the other cyborgs, Alice will freely talk back to authority even if it gets her in trouble. She speaks her mind and heart. If something is bothering her, she isn't afraid to let people know.

| History |
Alice has no memory of her past because of conditioning.


|Thoughts on Other Characters|
Max- Even though Alice is only a year older than Max, she still feels an undying need to protect her. Max's apathetic nature scares Alice sometimes, but she knows Max to well to let it stop her from being around her. Alice often 'kidnaps' Max from practice/training so they can play together. She also loves to dress Max up in dresses and make her walk around and show everyone how adorable she is. But Alice knows when not to go overboard with her. All in all, she thinks Max is her best friend.

Wes- Alice thinks Wes is a pretty chill guy, which she likes. He is one of the only people at the SWA that she feels comfortable jumping on and talking too. Of course she knows to respect him, but he never gets mad at her really, at least not that she sees if he does. Alice doesn't think he's anything like all the jerks at the SWA.

Seiren- To Alice, Seiren just needs a hug. Alice is scared to jump on Seiren like she does with Wes, but will squeeze her tight whenever she knows its coming. In some ways, Alice feels like she completely understands Seiren. Alice likes to stick around Seiren, not only cause she's the oldest, but she is absolutely gorgeous. It seems odd that Alice never felt an ounce of jealousy towards Seiren, just a need to stand by her.

Beth- Beth is someone who can keep up with Alice. She is happy beyond belief that she got to have her as a roommate. Alice doesn't find Beth's constant joy at all frightening. She understands that in the world they lived in, there wasn't a lot to get excited about. And they were trained assassins, so if they were doing the job, they may as well enjoy it. Alice is sometimes like Beth during missions, laughing away as she fills the target with holes.

Chris- Alice thinks that him being Beth's handler was odd. He was so emotionless and hard, when Beth was so joyful and nice. Alice pretty much treats Chris as she treats Wes, jumping on him whenever she can. A lot of people think Alice has an obsession with beauty, seeing she hangs around Seiren a lot. She likes to stick around Chris whenever she can as well. She isn't afraid to admit he is attractive, but she well doesn't love him. In fact, sometimes his emotionless being ticks her off.

Samuel- Alice doesn't like it when Samuel disappears and often gives him the cold shoulder when he returns, even if he did call her. But other than that, Alice loves Samuel and is glad she has him as a handler. Sometimes she doesn't really know how to act around him, being he doesn't talk nearly as much as her. So Alice tries to make him play with her when she isn't mad or off breaking the rules. One of her favorite things to do is hide for a day when he is there to see how much Samuel cares enough to look for her.

Walter- Alice isn't to sure about Walter, only because she doesn't get a right 'vibe' from him. Not saying she comp,etely avoids him, but she doesn't talk to him if she doesn't have top. It might have just been the way he dressed or the way he acts around her, who knows. If she is going through on of her hiding spells and sees him, she just stares and watches. Kind of like she is waiting for something to happen.


|Anything Else|
Alice absolutely adores listening to music when she is on missions. She claims it helps her aim and focus. She almost always has her music player with her. If she isn't listening to that then she is singing or humming most of the time.

So begins...

Alice's Story

Max


Max drug the last body to the center of the floor where she had been asked to do so. The bodies were lighter to her then they might be to others, but considering her cybernetic limbs...she had an advantage. The job had been easy. There were only five people and they were no match for her and Seiren. Her breathing even, not even an ounce of adrenaline running through her. It was almost like she was getting bored with killing. But that couldn't be possible. She loved it and it was what she was made to do. Maybe she just needed to train with a different weapon for a while.

"Excuse me, miss," someone from the clean up team said, bringing Max back from her thoughts.

"Sorry," Max said simply. The whispers around her were ignored as she made her way through the small abandoned factory to one of the cars out front. She could still smell the blood and looking down, she could see she had gotten some on her jacket. Clothes never mattered to her, so she took it off, wiping what blood was on her face off. It was a disappointment in her mind when she got blood on herself. If I were better that wouldn't happen, she would tell herself. Back to training. But she liked training, so that was okay. The feel of her Beretta in her small hands as she maneuvered through the old building they used for training brought her joy that nothing else ever could.

"Normal little girls want dolls and dresses," she hears some of the scientists say,"These little girls want to murder and follow orders." There was nothing wrong with murder if it was for the right reason. She killed bad people. If they thought of it as justice instead of murder, it wouldn't sound so evil. Max new she was a good girl and that was all that mattered. But today she wasn't a good girl. She had made a mess. Sure it was what the cleanup crew was for, but still. A good assassin would have been quick and clean.

Alice


Alice squirmed in her seat, looking out the window once every three minutes. "Are we there yet? I hate flying in airplanes. They smell and people snore loud." Yep, your average little girl. Can't sit still and hates being bored. She had sat in her seat everyway possible trying to get comfortable, then just stared out the window. The job they had been sent on wasn't nearly interesting enough to keep the young girl occupied in thinking about it. She had to think of what she was going to do when she got back. What games she was going to play.

"Oh!" Alice remembered she had brought her music player, grabbing it out of her small bag and sticking the head phones in her ears. "Shuffle, shuffle, shuffle," she said in a sing song voice as she searched through her gigantic erray of songs. Settling on an old rock song, she once again gazed out the window, watching the clouds dance and flow to the rhythm.

Alice had a bad habit of blasting her music so everything around her was drowned out and she was in her own little world. A world filled with music and white, puffy clouds. She practically had her nose pressed flat against the glass as she named every cloud as it passed. That one is a fuzzy caterpillar and that one is an elephant balancing on a giant ball, she said in her head, bobbing to the beat. A simple recon mission. All the way to New York! They didn't have us kill anyone! It was a waste of our time, she imagined a conversation with the cloudy caterpillar. Well, at least we got out of the Agency. When we were walking around, there was a cowboy in his underwear singing a pretty song. He even let me sing with him! Alice smiled happily as her thoughts and imaginary conversations continued on.

Walter

Walter smiled as he exited the door, and locked it. It was a fun mission, and he didn't kill anyone. He didn't need to. Walter locked the door to the room with the key he found, and walked out, through the building, and out to the street, carrying his briefcase with his equipment within. He was now in the clear. From the radio, he could tell that, on Max's end, it was a mess, and a lot of people died. Oh well. Walter passed through the street and continued on until he made it to the getaway car, a very inconspicuous black van. He waited for the others, while leaning on this van. The mission wasn't too bad. It had it's excitements, and it's ups and downs. Walter was stealthy enough to avoid having to actually fight. Naturally, he left his briefcase behind for the duration of the mission. It was too bulky to carry and hide effectively, so he hid it somewhere in the building instead. Walter hated violence. He did not have an aversion to it that prevented him from doing it when necessary, but in his eyes, there were not many situations where violence was necessary. He was never violent in the past, not particularly. And above all, he enjoyed peace. That was why he took this job as a Handler. If it was in him to fight, he might as well fight for something that would help people. Walter looked back up. He was slightly worried. Seiren and him had been separated for a short time, during this mission, and he has not seen her since. Seiren could easily get in trouble, and he needed to watch her carefully. The rendezvous would have to wait. The longer he stayed here, the more danger there was in Seiren causing trouble. He picked up his briefcase, and began to head for Seiren's location. He used his earpiece, as he moved back across the street. Hopefully Seiren didn't make things too difficult for the clean-up team. Walter jogged, before sprinting to the area Seiren was. Hopefully Wes wasn't having trouble with Max. Those two get along great, though.

Samuel


Sitting to the right of the young and spirited Alice was Samuel, hunched over in his seat, eyes flickering over a few sheets of paper scattered across his fold out table. These were the mission reports, documents that he had spent hours labouring over on his old laptop before printing them out. There wasnt much on them though; fortunatley their reconassiance misson hadnt involved any combat. Samuel felt that this misson had actually been pretty dull, nothing particularly odd happened and if you can ignore the fact that Alice had been prancing through the streets singing with the craziest folk in the city then you could call it the quietest mission yet.

Though the thing was that Alice's behaviour wasnt something Samuel could ignore, not with the agency pestering him for behaviour reports after every mission. Samuel glanced to his left, distracted by the quiet hum of music he heard coming from his partners earphones. She made things difficult, put him in a few tough situations. He probably should have scolded her for her actions at the time but couldn't bring himself to. And he couldn't tell her off now either, Samuel didn't want to ruin her mood. Thoughts buzzed through his head every time he caught sight of a smile on Alice's face and this time was no different. "I guess I can twist the facts a little, no need to deal with a lecture from the lab coats as soon as we get back" he though to himself. Samuel slowly turned back to his papers, wearily scrunching one up into a ball and shoving it into his pocket before the rest were hurriedly put back into a black briefcase and tucked under his seat.


Samuel look across the isle, checking that Beth and Chris were doing fine, and from what he could see it seemed they were. As a quiet sigh parted from between Samuels lips he felt a wave of drowsiness sweep over him. He lay back in his seat, listening to the barely audible hum of Alice's music as he drifted off. Just before he fell asleep he tapped alice on the shoulder gently, waiting for her to turn around before he sleepily whispered to her; "Alice, Please wake me up abit before we land". Then with a small smile Samuel turned away, muttering a silent "Thanks" as he did.

Wes Thornton

Wes watched as Max got into the van with him. Aside from some blood on her clothes and face, blood that wasn't even her own, she appeared fine. Wes smiled over at her and gave Max a light pat on the head.

"You did good, Max." Wes told her, meaning every word. True, the mission hadn't gone quite so cleanly, and the targets had put up some resistance before death, but it wasn't an unexpected variable. No battle plan survived contact with the enemy, after all. So all things considered, Max and Seiren had done a good job for this little 'find and exterminate' mission.

Though a part of him couldn't help but wonder if Seiren had purposely made her own killings...messy. According to the clean up crew, their was little left of her targets. Not for the first time, it really made him feel uneasy about the oldest of the cyborgs. Something was seriously wrong with Seiren, that much was sure; but it appeared that the Agency didn't have his concerns...yet. It seemed that only he considered Seiren to be the true threat he knew that she was. Her instability would come back to bite them in the ass one day, he knew that for sure.

At the very least, it seemed that Walter had some amount of control and sway over Seiren. That was good. But he wondered how long that might last. Perhaps one day Seiren would be pushed over the edge, and lash out against her handler...

Brushing such morbid thoughts out of his mind, Wes looked back down at Max and smiled.

"When we get back to HQ, how about I treat you to some ice cream, Max? That sound good to you?" he asked kindly, ruffling her hair with his palm.

Max was a good kid, in his opinion. She had her...issues, of course, but almost all the cyborgs did. And Wes wasn't about to fault his charge for that. Despite her flaws, he really did love Max; she reminded him a lot of the little nieces his sister had back home. Though much more trigger-happy, of course. He was glad to be her partner, and when able, he was more than happy to treat her like an actual child. It was the least he could do for her, all things considered.

Beth

Beth smiled and hummed happily to herself, as she drew on the sketch pad held on her lap. She was almost finished with the drawing of Alice singing with that cowboy fellow in Times Square. That had been a bit of a surprise, but New York City was....quite an odd place, to say the least, and Alice had certainly enjoyed the experience. For her part, Beth had made sure to take plenty of pictures, and had plans of developing them all for her scrapbook. She'd also make sure to show Alice those pictures when she got the chance, too!

Beth couldn't help but also draw the scene too, though. She loved to draw, and even if she already had a real picture of the event, she wanted to draw out Alice's happy moment all the same. Somehow making a drawing of the event made it feel all the more special, and no doubt Alice would love the sketch, too! Hopefully she'd finish it by the time the plane landed.

The young blonde looked over at her handler Chris, sitting right next to her. She grinned happily at him and showed him what she had drawn, so far. "How does it look, Chris? Do you think Alice will like it?"

She already knew Alice would, of course, but she couldn't help but ask Chris all the same. She loved talking to her handler, and she loved getting his opinion on her drawings. She always felt so proud when he complemented her skills, especially when it came for her talent with art.

Max


Max had been staring out the window, thinking about her training when she got home. A pat on the head didn't come to a start to her, but she only continued to look out the windshield.

"You did good, Max." Wes said. "When we get back to HQ, how about I treat you to some ice cream, Max? That sound good to you?" he asked kindly, ruffling her hair with his palm. Max never asked for anything from Wes, he always offered. Not that she didn't mind. He was her handler, she loved him and somehow she felt as if she could never tell him no.

So with a dull smile, she nodded. "Sure, I love ice cream sir." With that, she threw her jacket onto the floor, ridding herself of any trace of blood. Max wondered how Seiren had done, no need to worry if she was okay. "Have you heard from Walter or Seiren, sir?" She wasn't worried, oh no. She knew the pair was more than capable of handling themselves, especially Seiren. But it was nice to know.

But it isn't my business, she looked back to her bloodied jacket. My business is at the Agency. I need to focus on training.

Alice


Alice felt a tap on the shoulder, and thank goodness she had taught herself to read lips. Otherwise she wouldn't be aware that Samuel had wanted her to wake him up before they landed. "Alice, Please wake me up a bit before we land." Then with a small smile Samuel turned away, muttering a silent "Thanks" as he did. She nodded, a big smile on her face. Alice sat back in her seat, closing the window shade.

1 HOUR LATER


"Pardon me. All passengers please take your seats and fasten your seat belt. We shall be landing shortly."

"Samuel," Alice started, shaking her handler by the shoulder. "Samuel, they said we were going to land soon!" She reached over him quickly, buckling him in and then herself. Alice couldn't contain her excitement. The airport was only an hour and a half drive from the Agency. She couldn't wait to tell Max and Seiren about her adventures in the 'Big Apple'. If she took a nap in the car then the time would fly! Most of all, she couldn't wait to get back to her weapons and the training building so she could shoot a little bit. Going on such a boring mission left her feeling deprived.

"A day full of hard work should cure that!" Of course she was bound to complain the next day about how much she had done. That she had trained for a weeks worth. But when she looked over at her tired handler, she thought maybe she shouldn't. I should give him a little break. He's been looking more tired lately.

Beth

Beth beamed at Chris and leaned into his touch, a radiant smile across her face as she blushed proudly at his praise. She nodded happily at her handler and continued work on finishing her drawing.

An hour later, the plane began to land, and Beth neatly finished up her drawing. Once the aircraft had completely landed and parked at the gate, she got up from her seat and quickly moved over to Samuel and Alice, a wide smile etched across her face. She flipped open her sketch pad and got to the page where she had drawn Alice and the cowboy singer. She reached over to Alice and happily handed her the pad, pointing at the drawing.

"I hope you don't mind, Alice, but I drew a picture of you and that cowboy singer from Times Square! Do you like it?" Beth inquired excitedly, eagerly anticipating her roommate's response.

Wes

Wes was about to answer Max about Seiren and Walter, when the duo abruptly showed up in the van. The driver then gunned the engine, and they were off.

Wes let Max answer Walter's inquiry about the mission, since she had more first-hand information on how things on her end had gone. He glanced over at Seiren once or twice, noting the blood stains on the oldest cyborg. No surprise there, he thought. Seiren was already a bloody assassin.

Well, no doubt Walter or someone else would take care of that as soon as they arrived back at headquarters, which...ought to be soon, he hoped. The sooner Wes put some distance between him and the unstable cyborg, the better.

Samuel


Samuel was wrenched back into reality by a gentle shake from his partner. He still felt abit sleepy though, having just woken up. From his left he heard her voice, full of excitement and urgency, "Samuel, They said we were going to land soon!". Alices voice was quicky followed through by a quiet -click- as she swiftly buckled his seatbelt for him. Samuel looked over to his left to see how she was and, as he had expected, she was bouncing up and down with the biggest smile he had ever seen plastered across her face. This trip must've been her first to New York so of course she would be happy; her brain was probably bulging with new found knowledge and experiences. There was no doubt that she would spend hours telling Max and Seiren story upon story when the got back. As he though about this a few other reason came to mind, all quite depressing, leaving Samuel hoping that meeting her friends was the main reason for Alices enthusiasm about returning to base.

Unfortunatley when Samuel got home his routine would be very different. The briefcase of reports would have to be delivered, verified then reviewed and he'd then have to plan out a schedule for the week; Thi was the was the most "fun" he was going to have today. Not that he minded though, Getting the tedious stuff out the way first would be best for him and Alice; giving him one less thing to stress about and more time to spend with her. They were both much safer in the agency too, not becuase of the actual defense system but the rumors about it. Most people heard about the agencys building through associates and atleast three quarters of those people would actually believe in their exaggerations about evaporator rays and laser shooting satelites.

Whilst Samuel was thinking up names for various weapons people might believe in and considering as to whether they were possible to create or not a quiet -bing- sounded throughout the aircraft, grabbing his attention. Seconds later the captains voice could be heard through the cabin, "Could all crew now take their seats, We are coming in for landing." and was followed by another irritating -bing-. Samuel watched a airhostest quickly prance by, moving to buckle into small seats hidden away. He was looking forward to their landing, as he did with every landing, becuase he enjiyed observing how the pilots handled their crafts and waht techniques they decided to use. Often he would sit in the window seat and watch the wings but Alice had beaten him to it this time, He wasnt too bothered though.

Walter

Walter remained quiet for the trip back to the trip back to SWA headquarters. After a few hours of driving, Walter stepped out of the vehicle, and entered the SWA building, carrying his briefcase with him. He opened the doors, entered wordlessly, tossed his suitcase onto the ground, nearby, and left it there. The place was nice. It wasn't a mansion, but it was a nice place. He lived within the headquarters, in a rather spartan room. Walter had several briefcases in the corner of his room, filled with his things. Other than that, there was only a bed. And of course, a closet full of the same outfit. Walter changed his clothes, into an identical set. His jacket was replaced by another one, and he took off his, and threw it onto the bed, before coming back out. Walter's suitcase was still there, where he left it. Good, good, good. Now, there was only one thing left to do. Walter washed his hands, rolled up his sleeves, and went to the fridge, to cook. He managed to buy some foie gras, and he has been waiting to eat it for a while. Nothing fancy, he didn't really care too much about what he himself ate, and right now, he just wanted a snack. He took some of the salt-cured foie gras, and made a simple sandwich. If someone saw what he was doing to the foie gras, he would imagine they would scoff, but Walter had no idea. Another thought came to him. Maybe Seiren would want some. She hates cold food, so he would have to cook it. After a short time, he made a soup, nice and hot, for Seiren, before writing a sticky note with Seiren's name on it, and then leaving both at the table. From there, it was off to the computer with Walter. Maybe he could find a nice lead for a potential mission while enjoying the sandwich.

Alice


Alice had unbuckled and grabbed her bag, but before she could think of getting it off the plane, Beth ran over to where Alice and her handler. She reached over to Alice and happily handed her a drawing pad, pointing at the drawing. "I hope you don't mind, Alice, but I drew a picture of you and that cowboy singer from Times Square! Do you like it?" Beth inquired excitedly.

Alice couldn't contain the squeal of excitement that escaped through her smile. "I love it! It's amazing!" Alice leapt on her roommate, not worrying if they toppled over. "I'm definitely framing this and hanging it up!" Alice giggled, carefully closing the pad and handing it back to Beth. She grabbed her hand, walking off the plane with her. "I can't wait to get back and show everyone. The ride shouldn't be that long."

AN HOUR AND A HALF LATER


Alice leapt out of the car, despite the fact that it was still rolling to a stop. She didn't spot any sign of the other girls, but they might have been in their room. "Are Max and Seiren back yet," she asked on of the scientists passing by in the hall.

"No. They haven't arrived yet." He passed by Alice as if she were nothing. But all she was allowed to do at the moment was stick her tongue out when his back was turned. The small girl ran back to Samuel, throwing herself onto his back.

"They aren't back yet," she pouted.



Max


"You’re not too bad yourself, Max... A couple more years and you’ll be finishing your assignments faster than they can assign them." Max put on her dull smile and nodded. That was her secret goal, even if it wasn't so secret. Her want and need for training had never been more driven.

FEW HOURS LATER


Max exited the van, taking her bloodied jacket and weapons case with her. She would make a quick stop by her room then head straight to the training course.

No, Wes wants to take me out for ice cream, she remembered. I'll definitely go afterwards.

"Sir, I'm going to drop all of this off in my room." Max dismissed herself, making her way to her room. She didn't see much use for her jacket, so she just threw it in a dumpster on her way around. Max could sense someone close by, only assuming it was the always energetic Alice or Beth. Her sense was right, causing her to topple to the floor, Alice giggling on top of her.

"I missed you! I have to show you the picture Beth drew of me and a cowboy in his underwear singing together. It was awesome! Chris and Samuel didn't look to amused, but I don't really care what they thought. I was having so much fun!" Max got up and picked up her case, entering her room.

"Sounds like you had a lot of fun."

"I did! Next time, we have to go to New York, all four of us! Okay?"

"I'll go if Wes goes," Max said simply.

It was a boring ride home to say the least. At least he knew that in the car it would be quiet, which it was. Chris simply looked out the window enjoying the view. He liked the feel of home. It was comfortable and he felt as if he could relax. As he watched the bubbling Alice bounce out of the moving car he let a small smirk crease his lips. He definitely had to give props to Samuel. He didn't think he could handle a female more outgoing than Beth, let alone a younger one. As they got out the car, he walked over to Beth. "Do you want to develop these pictures with me?" He asked. "If you do, you can put your things away and meet me in the Lab." Afterwards he then proceeded to talk to Samuel. "It seems you have allot of paperwork to do. Tomorrow we should combine the information we have and see if we find any new leads." With that, he headed to the Laboratory. Inside he would find a dark room that he could use for photo development. It wasn't the most exciting thing he was made to do, but it was definitely one of his favorites. It took time and it was quiet. If he had to he would compare it to fishing. It really put his mind at ease.

Samuel


As soon as the hatches hissed opened, stairs now connected, Samuel was rushing out the plane, his right hand grasping the briefcase and left holding onto Alice's small hand. They moved through the crowded airport quickly, picking up what little luggage they had before stepping out into the narrow pickup area. Amongst all the trucks and cars was a vehicle Samuel knew quite well, A bulky black jeep with tinted windows; its engine purred quietly as the driver sat patiently. Samuel watched Chris and Beth climbing into the vehicle before he himself stepped onboard and helped Alice who followed. The driver turned and glanced at them from his seat, nodding once before slamming the vehicle into gear and starting on his route to the agency.

Half an hour later...


About half an hour later the vehicle came to a shuddering halt, its destination now in sight. Alice was the first to disembark though didn't go far before turning right around and hoping onto his back. Beth was much clamer, staying for a moment to speak to chris. Samuel couldn't quite make out what they were saying though, only a word or two got through to him. He guessed it was something about photos, nothing of any major importance. Chris then turned to him and started to speak, "It seems you have a lot of paper work to do. Tomorrow we should combine the information we have and see if we find any new leads." then he walked off, leaving Samuel alone with Alice. He kneeled down and let her climb off his back before turning to face her directly. He spoke to her slowly, occasionally pausing "Alice, You go inside, Ill be awhile, Find me later". And like that she scurried off, leaving Samuel on his own.

For a few minutes he stood very still, staring into the distance. He knew others would think this to be odd, his boss might even shout at him for such actions but Samuel didn't care; He was taking a minute think and to remind himself of something very important. As he pondered upon these things a smile appeared, however it was quick to fade when Samuel returned from the depths of his mind and quickly dashed into the agency with his briefcase. After some walking this briefcase found its way onto an old ebony desk of some importance where it was to stay for the rest of the day. The figure sitting in the seat behind this desk quickly signalled for Samuel to leave as he set down the briefcase, telling him to go do as he wished. From here Samuel wasn't entirely sure what to do, Until he got a basic plan for this week from an member of staff he couldn't form a proper routine for himself or Alice. So he decided to go look for Alice instead and found himself roaming through the facility, peering into open rooms and through small windows, looking for any hint of her location.

Seiren gave a small, slightly exasperated, sigh as the van pulled up in front of the SWA headquarters...the place she was to call “home”. Quickly scanning the cement parking lot from behind the pane of glass, the eldest cyborg duly noted the other vehicles resting haphazardly throughout the area... it could only mean one thing. The others were back. My... I can’t wait until Beth sees me like this. came her grim thoughts as her oceanic eyes latched onto the vast splashes of scarlet soiling her alabaster skin. Wordlessly, the assassin rose from her seat to follow her roommate out into the sun.. of course, not before sending a slight peek over her shoulder at Watler.


The second her soft-soled boots came into contact with the concrete was the second Seiren regretted getting out of the car. Almost instantaneously, rays of watery sunlight began to attack her light-sensitive orbs with a stinging sensation.. not exactly the most pleasurable experience. A small 'tch' of annoyance was given by the cyborg as she, almost hastily, crossed the parking lot in attempt to escape the sunlight’s brutality. Seiren could withstand many events or objects.. however the sun was one that the cyborg simply couldn’t dismiss... as much as she desperately wish she could. Slipping like a phantom through the front door, dimness consumed her being (much to her joy). However, just as she was about to set a foot on the white flooring, a loud clearing of a throat made her freeze. Sliding that frosty gaze over, Seiren took in two women, obviously from the cleanup division, pointedly staring at the soaked boots. A few moments passed, a clock ticked rather noisily in the background, before the teenager bent down to slowly unzip her boots. Don’t want blood on your clean floors, huh? Isn’t that your job though.. to clean up. hissed the annoyed thoughts as the eldest finally managed to take off both of her shoes. Immediately, cold seeped it's way through the soles of her daintily crafted feet before shooting up the entirety of her core.. however, she took little note of it. Tossing the boots to the mid-aged women, much to their alarm, Seiren swiftly shed the coat Walter had given her earlier, as well as her own cloak, before adding it to their tower. Not even bothering to wait around, the unstable cyborg walked down the halls to her shared room. Tmp. Tmp. Tmp. softly resonated in the closed space, the sound inhumanely soft. In an odd way of sorts, it was almost melodic.. that is, when you looked past the underlying sinister tone that was so craftily hidden by the sound.


Approaching the room in which both Max and Seiren dwelled, two female voices snaked their way into the approaching cyborg’s mind....one was overly energetic, the other more solemn. Once again mimicking the sigh from earlier, the eldest teenager walked through her door.. only to be greeted by the sight of Alice and Max planning a future trip. Trying her hand at not interrupting, Seiren gave a simple, small nod showing she acknowledged the other cyborg’s presence before brushing past the pair of girls. Fluidly crossing the room and passing under the threshold of the bathroom’s door, the bloodied girl lightly kicked the door closed. ”Well... time to clean up I guess...” mused the stoic voice as she quickly went to work stripping her body of the soiled fabric. Turning on the hot water, without a pause, Seiren stepped under it’s cleansing stream. In amusement, the cyborg spent a minute or two watching the water run a bright shade of red before quickly going to work at scrubbing the tainted skin back to it's original state.


Within a few moments, the water was turned off and Seiren, once more, was restored to her “normal” appearance. Wrapping her naked form in a towel, the eldest cyborg stepped over the heap of blood-soaked rags and out the bathroom door. Once more, not really saying anything to the pair of young girls, the teenager closed the space between the door and the closet space set aside for herself. Pulling out the designated outfit, a clean pair mind you, Seiren promptly dropped the towel and started to get dressed. As much as she would have loved to dry her hair, there wasn't any time. So, in a few heart beats, the cyborg was off to find her handler.


Passing through the house, it only took a minute or so for Seiren to track down her handler .. who was at the computer by the kitchen. Of course. Ignoring the sensation of her damp hair brushing against the backs of her knees, the cyborg finally spoke. As usual, her tone was reserved and ever-so-slightly, icy. ”You said we would talk later. So here I am.”.

Max & Alice


Alice has made a cyborg-burrito out of Max's sheets on her bed as she rattled on about New York. All Max could think about was how loud and crowded it had to be. "Hey! Do you want to go train? I've been dying to ever since that boring recon."

"Wes promised me ice cream. I'm supposed to meet him soon." Alice's fake gasp was somewhat expected.

"You? Max? Turning down training for ice cream?!" Max didn't see what was so funny. It seemed that the fact she was a train-o-holic was obvious to everyone but her. "That's fine," Alice continued, holding up her music player, "I'll be fine on my own."

Max nodded back to Seiren as she left, not having to have bothered with her hair. She must have been ordered to Walter's side. Max to the opportunity to take up the bathroom, washing her face and switching into her favorite orange shirt. It was almost habit for her to tuck in the shorter shirts and dress like a boy. Alice on the other hand was almost always in a skirt. She argued that it was easier to move in. But either way, Max prefered pants. Both girls left their room at the same time, walking together until they had to split ways. It just so happened that they were still together when Max picked up Wes' scent outside the doors. "You seriously have to teach me how you do that," Alice said, running out the doors to meet Wes.

"Hi Wes! How was the mission?" Alice smiled up at him, grabbing onto his arm. Max came out shortly after and made her way to Wes' side. "I got to sing in New York with a cowboy that had a guitar and nothing on but his underwear! Beth drew us and it is perfect! I'll show you when I show Max! But I am going to shoot for a bit, so bye!" And with that, the small girl bounded off towards the training building.

"Sorry if I took to long, sir." Max said not long after Alice disappeared.

Walter finished the delicious sandwich, and began think about what to do next. As he turned on the computer, he thought about what to do. The mission was good, and he needed to send in his report. A simple mission only needed a simple report. Walter typed it up very quickly. Walter was good at typing and using a computer. His fingers moved with an almost supernatural level of dexterity and speed. He wasn't an olympic-level typist, but he was very good. the report was done very shortly after Walter began to type. In the report, Walter included Seiren's behavior report, and noted what happened. What happened wasn't too bad, and it didn't jeopardize the mission, but Walter wished that level of violence did not happen. Maybe he should limit Seiren to non-lethal weapons. To be honest, it probably wouldn't work, and it wasn't going to make her any more versatile. Rather, she may just kill people with her fists. Well, whatever. Walter was selected as her Handler because he was deemed capable enough to handle her. She shouldn't have her weapons swapped out. She should just use them in a different way. She was really combat oriented. Well, whatever. With that, Walter let his mind wander. He began to browse the internet while he thought of something. There was a lead, not more noteworthy than the others Walter was thinking of, and a lot more hard to follow than the normal one. Natasha Wright. Not a noteworthy case, compared to a few others. A CIA agent who vanished, and now was considered a dangerous individual. How she got so much money was anyone's guess, but what she did with it seems to be alarming CIA members. In fact, Walter wouldn't be surprised if the SWA got a call to find and apprehend her. The SWA was capable, funded, secretive, and had a lot of support staff. Hearing light footsteps, Walter closed the tab of LOLCats he drifted to, and turned in his chair. It was Seiren, cleaned up, with wet hair, falling to her knees. Walter couldn't help but wonder how much it dripped on her way here. She spoke.

”You said we would talk later. So here I am.”

Walter replied, short and sweet, in a mostly neutral manner, but rather than coldness in his voice, this time it held more of a feeling of message conveyance. As if trying to make a point, or accurately transcribe an idea.

"Make sure you don't kill when killing is unnecessary. Life has value, too. Also, I made a very good, expensive meal for you on the table in the kitchen. I think you'll like it, since it's probably still warm."

Walter smiled, the edges of his lips angling upwards, before he turned back to the computer. As soon as he did, several things that looked like spam messages popped up on his screen. Walter's lack of reaction, when seen from the back, was almost comical, until he actually read the messages and looked at the pictures. It looked like a new mission came up. And, speaking of the devil, it was to apprehend Natasha Wright.

"Get ready to leave soon, Seiren, and make sure all of your weapons are loaded," Walter said, before forwarding the messages, that looked like spam, to all the handlers at the base.

Samuel


Samuel caught up with Alice just as she neared the training building, having caught sight of her only minutes earlier through an open window. Slowly he crept up to her side, not actually doing so in an attempt to hide but rather just because he didn't likenbeing too loud. When he found Alice to be within arms reach he softly tapped her on the shoulder, interrupting her attempt at opening the training facilities door. As she turned to face him Samuel nodded towards her, moving to push open the door to the training facility as he spoke. "So Alice, Your pitching in some free time for training?" He asked, a curious expression plastered across his face.

Usually Alice would be hanging around with Max or the other cyborgs, It almost surprised Samuel that she had chosen to come here alone. Not that he disapproved of this kind of thing though, Training was really important for these kids. They weren't invincible and most certainly weren't immune to the decay in skill of rarely used abilities. For these kids who were on the field every day practice was of some importance and could mean life or death. Samuel was pretty sure that if the agency was given their way with these kids then training all they would be doing. Fortunately though these kids were trusted into the hands of other people. Samuel knows that these people who are assassins and soldiers aren't the best choice for taking care of a kid but at least they aren't murderers who cherish the blood of their foes.

Alice


"So Alice, Your pitching in some free time for training?" He asked, a curious expression plastered across his face.

"Beth is developing pictures from New York with Chris. Wes is taking Max to the cafeteria for ice cream. And Seiren is who knows where. Besides, I didn't get to do anything like this in New York." Alice had her Glock 32 stashed in a broken drawer near the door so she wouldn't have to haul it all the way to the building. It only had abit of dust on it which she quickly wiped away with a bit of her small green sundress. Her hair was already gathered in a ponytail, so all she had to do was take off the saftey. "Are you gonna watch me?" she asked with a smile and eyes like stars looking at Samuel.

Either way, Alice jumped through the first door, closing it roughly behind her. "Alright," she got against the wall and pressed the button that said begin. The first room was all bad guys that wouldn't have a chance if they were more than cardboard cut-outs. But once she got to the second room, the hostages and bystanders started to pop up. To her, it was sometimes hard to tell the difference. Everytime she knew she hit the wrong one, she cringed, but shoved on. By the time she came to the end of the maze, she was staring intently at her gun. Alice couldn't blame the gun. It only did what it was meant to do. "Ohhh well," she shrugged. "Better run through it again."

It was all the same, the second, third, even fourth time. Max and Seiren never had that issue. They only hit who they were supposed to hit, even if Seiren went overboard. It reminded her of when she was the newest edition and had close to no knowledge of how to work a gun. She looked straight down the barrel of her loaded gun to 'observe' more closely. If Max hadn't shoved the barrel away, Alice might have been the shortest-lived cyborg ever.Sometimes she felt like she still had more than enough to learn. "So Sam," she shouted, assuming hecould hear her. "Have you heard anything about any mission? Any interesting ones?"

Samuel


As Samuel leaned against the wall to his left he listened intently to what Alice had to say, silently deciphering every word she spoke. He was keen to hear as to why she was alone and hoped her answer was a good one."Beth is developing pictures from New York with Chris. Wes is taking Max to the cafeteria for ice cream. And Seiren is who knows where. Besides, I didn't get to do anything like this in New York." After saying this Alice moved swiftly, pushing open the blue doors of the building and slipping inside, once again leaving Samuel standing alone. However this time Samuel was much quicker to follow, only pausing for a second to take what he had just heard, try to sum it up in fewer words and come up with something along the lines of "Everyone is busy so I'm going to shoot". This brought a brief smirk to his face, reminding him slightly of his own youth and that they shared some interests as he took the step from the cold corridor into the warm training facility.

Inside Alice had been busy, having cleaned her gun and already made sure all the safety requirements were met. The moment Samuels foot came down on the concrete floor she whipped around, eyes sparkling, to ask a question. "Are you gonna watch me?". With a brief nod towards Alice Samuel followed, watching over her as she blitzed through the training rooms. Every time she hit a target he felt proud of her -but- in a lot of cases this feeling was quickly followed by some disappointment, having just watched her shoot down a hostage or civilian dummy. He really admired her diligence and loyalty to training, it was unfortunate that she wasn't as accurate as others when it came to shooting.

After over seeing Alice's first run through the training course Samuel took a break, resting in a small white room that could be called the lobby. He sat down in a semi comfy chair and pulled his black touch screen phone out his pocket. The phone was fairly old and the letters S.W were stuck on the back in pink and purple plastic gems. That and the few love heart stickers on the phone made it really stand out in comparison to Samuel, this didn't stop him using it though. He could hear Alice's gunfire in the background as he browsed through his emails, looking for what had caused it to ring before. Eventually he found the file, a mail from Walter. At first he wasn't too sure what it was but after a brief inspection came to realize it was about a mission. He was just about to give it a proper read over when Alice shouted over, asking about missions.

Samuel was quick to respond, shouting out to Alice. "I got a mail about one here! Check it out!". As she bounced over Samuel held out his phone, the file open, ready for her to inspect.

Max


"It's fine, Max. It wasn't a long wait. Now let's go get you some ice cream." Wes lightly took Max's hand is his, leading the way to the cafeteria. Once they arrived, Max was only temporarily left alone so Wes could retrieve the ice cream but was back shortly. He had a vanilla cone and a strawberry cone and handed Max the pinkish red hued one.

"Thank you," she said and once it was made clear she could begin eating, she stared blankly at the cone, licking the odd cold treat occasionally. It was interesting how some would drip off the cone and onto her small fingers. It was cold no matter what. She always wondered why it would still be cold if it was melting. But Max was a genius with guns and weaponry, not ice cream.

"How do you like your ice cream, Max?" her handler asked kindly.

"It's really good," the young girl said plainly. "Thank you." Max looked up at Wes a blank smile on her face. It is rude to look depressed and say thank you, Alice always told her, You have to smile so they know it is sincere. max really did appreciate Wes taking time to treat her, it was just hard for her to show sometimes. "If you have work to do, I can go train so I'm not a bother." Max was only half way through her cone when she set it down on a napkin, grabbing another to wipe off her hand before she continued. "Alice should be down there. We could work together. I've noticed her shooting still needs work."


Alice


"I got a mail about one here! Check it out!" Alice ran over to her handler's voice, sitting and holding the phone at the ready for her. She pulled the screen close, reading every word twice.

"Yes," she screamed, jumping up and down, backwards and forwards. Her gun was safely on the couch, safety on, so her bouncing off the walls was only concern to some one who might walk through the door and get attacked by her excitement. I'm so excited, I can't wait to hear the details! I wonder what we get to do? Do you think we get to do some really cool action-like stuff this time?" Alice continued to bombard her handler with questions and theories, plans and suggestions. Alice somehow wormed her way behind Samuel in the chair and wrapped her arms around his neck. "I'm so, so, so, soooo excited!" She bounced with every word and squeezed him out of happiness, but not tight to the point to where he couldn't breathe.

And so she left. Walter didn't have a problem with Seiren's stoic behavior. It was fine, to him. He never really thought it somehow detracted from her expression. It was probably something Walter alone seemed to think. Well, whatever, time for a new mission. Walter was already ready, in terms of clothes. His suitcase was where he left it. He didn't get a call from Samuel, who typically made plans for the missions, nor did anyone else seem to be immediately ready. There were some things Walter could do to pass the time. He could follow Seiren, but he decided to leave her be for now. He'd come back to her, and together they could wait for the others. Walter decided to see how the others were doing, first. Entering the training room, he saw no one inside. Seeing no one around, Walter picked a handgun as a weapon form the selection, A simple SO-COM pistol. Walter held it in his hand, before twirling it around his finger. He cherished the feeling, the weight, the things the handgun were to him. He had not used one in a long time. His skill were rusty, and, while there was no need to use one, for him who had other weapons, Walter couldn't help himself. He was born on a battlefield, and raised in it. Throughout all the allegiances he had gone through, with different people and organizations, Walter hardly ever complained. He just fought. It was in his nature to fight. He immediately stopped twirling the gun, and in a motion that seemed too quick for even practiced officers, he whipped it forward, stopping it right when a target was in his sights. A bulls-eye seemed imminent, but Walter did not pull the trigger. He couldn't pull the trigger. He knew all too well, why. His choice of weapons was oddly devoid of a handgun, when in the field. Walter wasn't fighting for whoever told him to, anymore. He honestly liked being in the Agency, and conducting manners in their way, because they were something Walter could believe in. His weapons that he used were almost entirely for special operations. Even when loaded with lethal rounds, he didn't look forward to harming his opponents. He didn't think much of it, other than that he would hate doing such things, except on a mission.

Oh, right. The mission.

Walter had gotten lost in thoughts again. He put the gun back where it was, and jogged out of the training room, into the lobby where Alice and Sam were. He didn't pause his jog to the exit, to his suitcase, but he did smile and wave at Sam and Alice briefly, before running out the door, and arriving to his briefcase a short bit later. Grabbing it, he opened it, checked to see his equipment was all there, and loaded, and that he had plenty of ammunition, before going to go wander around with it in his hand. Maybe he would run into Seiren, or any of the others, again.

Samuel


Samuel relaxed in his seat and watched Alice, both his ears and mind were wide open as he listened to the variety of ideas and plans she was throwing his way. This was probably as much for fun her as anything else she did, she could always finding the potential for fun in things and would easily exploit it with no second thoughts. Eventually Alice's rambling came to a halt though and before Samuel himself had even realised this the girl had found a way to wedge herself behind him and now clung to him like a scarf on a cold day. She held him tight, though not to tight, and bounced up and down wildly, actually shaking with excitement.

It wasn't just Alice's movements that told Samuel she was excited. She even went to far as to say it herself however you might not have realised this at first. A lot of what was coming out of Alice's mouth was slurred to together and hard to decipher: she often sped up her speech when she was really psyched up, unfortunately She never noticed this herself. But in there somewhere she said "I'm so, so, so, soooo excited!" It was around this point Samuel got to his feet, leaving Alice dangling off his neck like a cape for a moment before she dropped to the floor. He turned to her and patted her head gently, talking calmly as he did. "Alice, Im sure theres so- ... some really cool action stuff this time. But until then we should train for a bit, Ill join you."

With this said Samuel turned again, pivoting on his heel to find Walter dashing across the room. There was barely time to say hello before he left again, though he did manage to send a quick wave in their direction as he ran off with a briefcase. Samuel wasn't too sure what had just happened though assumed it to be nothing more than a simple hello and shrugged it off as best he could before heading to his locker in the other room, forgetting Alice still had his phone.
