Derek Snow

N I C K N A M E S
Echo|Derek's codename. It had originally been a nickname from his past used in a mocking fashion that he adopted into being a name he wears proudly.
The Mute|Most people seem to forget to refer to him by is name and often just call him 'The Mute' whenever they talk about him.
D-d-derek|A nickname Derek hated when he was young that many of the other foster kids called him any of the few times he was verbal and his severe stutter came through.

Derek's eyes hold a mystery much like there color as they are always changing. Most times they appear a pure green color wile other times they change to a dark blue though the most enticing color is when they change to a dark grey that draws people in with the way they can so clearly see into a person's soul.

H A I R
Many would argue that Derek's hair would be his most notable and attractive feature with it's dark brown hair that looks nearly pure black when hit with just the right amount of light(or lack there of). His hair often follows into kinked up curls often roaming wherever they please giving his hair that perfect tossed look to them. His hair is typically of medium length often reaching beneath his ears and sometimes at the bottom of his jaw at it's longest. It's often seen in it's signature messy fashion brushing across his eyes making people wonder how he's even able to see so much.

A P P E A R A N C E
Derek could be an arguably handsome young man though don't expect him to ever be vocal about it. He's rather small in size often being amongst the shortest in the group with a thin build though there's hardly an ounce of fat left on him. He often sports a dirty look to him as he rarely washes except maybe once every week or so due to his seemingly irrational fear of water. He dresses rather poorly from growing up where finding clothes in his size were next to impossible. His most often picked at feature would be his hands he uses every day to communicate. They have dirt beneath the nails that get picked everyday though that isn't what has people staring. It's the scars. He has perfectly straight lined scars that thickly cover and range across his hand from a past he never wants to relive.




Image
S T R E N G T H S
Stealth|Being that Derek is already naturally quiet, stealth is very much on his side with the way he is able to move himself in almost complete silence. He often startles members of the Black Cat with how silently he is able to move around unnoticed.
Combat|It was a tough learning process for Derek but he's managed to do fairly well in combat situations along with using various weapons though his choice is often something light weight and quiet despite being capable with a gun if needed.
Observation|Derek is a very observant young man. He catches details in things others often overlook and uses this too his advantage when strategizing.
Physicality|He's not the biggest or the strongest of the group but he's still physically fit and can hold his own but his best would be anything involving parkour,
Communication|Being that he choses to almost never be vocal, Derek has come up with many clever ways to communicate with others. The easiest would be sign language though he sometimes switching to other forms like morse code, writing, and even an entertaining game of charades.

W E A K N E S S E S
Mute|Silence is a virtue but being mute has had it's drawbacks. Particularly in his past.
Stutter|Derek absolutely hates ever having to be vocal as he has a severe stutter that has caused many scars for him growing up.
Physical Strength|Derek can easily hold his own but he's still not the strongest or biggest guy around so physical strength can sometimes be a disadvantage for him.
Vulnerability|Never talking has made it easy to avoid being vulnerable and bringing up his past but still it'd be a challenge to do so even if he were vocal.

F E A R S
Water|It's a very long and complicated story and the reason he still has a hard time bathing though he does fine in rain.
Past|Dark things lie within his past. Things that still wake him up at night.

SILENT 0 OBSERVANT 0 GUARDED 0 BRAVE 0 LOYAL 0 KIND

SILENT. Now being mute wouldn't really be something someone would label as a personality trait yet silent is the first and easiest way for someone to describe Derek. He's always silent only ever being vocal with those he trusts enough and even then they really only get maybe a word or to out of him once every blue moon. Derek prefers to stay quiet and keep to himself. Things are just easier for him that way.

OBSERVANT. Being a mute seemed to come with it's perks as now Derek is someone to easily be overlooked giving him perfect opportunity to stay in the embrace of his dear shadows. He's become a highly observant young man noticing details others often overlook along with having quite the knack for reading people much better than most.

GUARDED. Almost never being vocal has lended itself to also being heavily guarded and Derek is most definitely a closed off individual. He never really shares anything too personal about himself even if he could. He prefers to keep his darkness locked away and swallow the key than deal with the trouble of bringing up past monsters.

BRAVE. He's someone who jumps off of high buildings and throws himself in-front of shooting bullets every day. It's pretty safe to say that Derek is a brave person for the most part. He does many daring tasks without caring though of course he still isn't entirely brave enough to face his fears just yet but he'll still fight until his last breathe against an opponent he knows will win. That's gotta count for something.

LOYAL. When it comes to his team, Derek is surprisingly more loyal than a dog. He may seem like he doesn't care at all with his silence and preference to simply keep to himself but he really does want to keep the team safe and watch them all succeed in their goals. He's loyal to a fault with them.

KIND. Many seem to assume that Derek, in simple terms, is an asshole because of keeping to himself. He does have a habit of sometimes being a bit sassy with his signing or expressions but he'd gladly give the shirt off his back for someone in need. He's truly one of the kindest guys someone could meet and he's often one to hesitate when it comes to harming others and tries to find the most non lethal means necessary.

E Q U I P M E N T / W E A P O N S
Baton|His most trusted and favorite weapon in close quarter combat situations. Derek uses a collapsible baton that doubles as a taser and his preferred way of easily taking someone done non lethally.
Grenades|This seems a bit odd but Derek keeps an assortment of non lethal grenades inside his bags for easier means of taking out larger groups in quicker and safer ways. They rang from flash bangs, to tear gas, and even grenades that shoot out rubber pellets that only sting and knock down targets.
Colt Defender|Derek despises guns but he does carry a nice compact colt that shoots 9mm rounds of rubber bullets to take down targets farther away without having to worry about killing them. He could easily aim for places that would be more non lethal but the rubber bullets just make him feel a little better about having to carry a gun.
Pepper Gun|Another gun for longer ranged but it fires pellets filled with tear gas instead.
Knife|He carries a knife because he feels a he needs to but he hardly uses it and it spends more time in his pocket than in his hand.
Flashlight|Don't diss the flashlight. It's great for 'stunning' an opponent with a quick flash of an insane 2000 lumens along with pointed edges if he needs to actually it them with it.
Sap Gloves|Derek is always caught wearing these. He finds them more practical than brass knuckles and they give his punches a bit of an edge since he's a smaller guy.

H I S T O R Y
Derek has never revealed his troubled past to anyone. It simply remains the mystery his silence creates but for the sake of giving him a bit of a back story here's a brief overview...

Derek was given up by his mother as a toddler and put through the foster care system. He ended up living in a boys group home basically all his life where he rarely ever spoke out of shyness in the beginning. though once he did become vocal, it was evident that Derek had a severe speech impediment with stuttering. This caused him to be a huge target for the larger boys to pick on him with eventually causing Derek to choose to become mute. Unfortunately this didn't stop the bullying at all and actually made it worse as the boys would do horrible things to get him to talk.

Things eventually had gotten so bad for the poor thing that he finally made the decision to run away from his group home at the age of 16 and live on the streets. Things weren't easy for him there but they were still better than how it used to be. He learned how to fend for himself and got a first hand experience of just how corrupted the world of crime and justice truly was. Derek desired to become a cop and right the wrongs but they wouldn't let him in. Derek got the next best thing when the vigilante organization known as Black Cat gave him an offer after they saw him out on the streets helping out underdogs like himself. Derek joined and the rest was history.

Nathan was still questioning how he'd actually managed to end up in college. Okay, sure, it was only the local community college, and was only an hour, tops, from his parent's house. But it was something, and it had given him an excuse to move into the city. Before that, he'd been limited in what he could do with Black Cat, because he relied either on bus times or getting a lift. Lucky for him, his parents thought it was good and healthy that he was going out with friends. They liked Kit and Audrey and even Xandru. And once Nathan had gotten good enough to avoid punches to the face, the questions about what exactly they were doing had stopped.

But now, he had total freedom. Well, whenever he wasn't in class. And even then, it turned out that none of his lecturers were overly sticky on attendance. As long as he knew his stuff when it came to the final exams, that would do them. It suited him right down to the ground. And, being a college student, nobody blinked an eye at him going into a bar at five in the evening.

"Nate," the bartender called as he entered. Nathan made his way over to him, glancing around. No cops- or, rather, no uniformed cops. "There's someone waiting for you guys in the back. It sounds urgent, but he also stinks of money. I wouldn't keep him waiting. Are the others coming in?"

"Yeah, as far as I know. I'll text some of them and tell them to hurry up," he replied, glancing down at his phone. No messages yet, but there probably would be before long.

"Good. Usual, yeah?"
"Yeah. Drop it into me, I'd better go see to whoever this is," he said, already heading into the back room. It was just big enough for the whole team and perhaps two other people, as long as those two other people were standing. It served all of their purposes, though. They had access to the bar's WiFi, it had decent lighting, and the table was plenty big enough for the occasional poker game, or for a makeshift treatment room for small wounds if necessary.

There was already a guy leaning against the wall, holding a glass of whiskey and glancing at his phone urgently. His suit alone looked looked like it cost more than the group's yearly bar tab. Even his nails were perfectly manicured. "Is this it? Some kid who looks like he couldn't bench press an empty bar, let alone anything heavier?" The man demanded. Nathan, who had only just started to type out the text to the group chat, raised an eyebrow.

"Yes, I am the entirety of Black Cat. I have, single-handedly, dealt with all of the cases you have undoubtedly heard about. I also get all of the money, which is why I'm so clearly rolling in it. Chill, the rest of the team is coming," he said, sliding into his usual seat and finishing the message.

To: Black Cat Group Chat
Guys, we have a client. He's rich and impatient, so I'd get your asses here ASAP.

Ain't No Rest For The Wicked




Everything seemed heightened today. The squeaks of tires each time they pulled hit the yellow light just too late to make it through. The people gossiping about their friends, colleagues, and coworkers amongst each other like typical school girls from a poorly written chick flick. Or the knocking of rocks with each step taken by a pair of black vans owned by the most silent man in all of Wildwood... Yes, everything felt much louder than usual for the mute Derek Snow. Things seeming loud was a normal occurrence for the observant hero but today just seemed a bit off as he searched for his destination choosing to walk over take his bike this time. Derek preferred walking or when one particular blonde decided to drive him to his missions for his team of vigilantes despite having a stunning KTM Super Duke at his disposal. As if being a mute wasn't odd enough.

Though Derek still continued on with his destination as he did everyday he got off from his part time job. Being that he was nineteen, it would be odd of him not to have a job while owning an apartment without a family to help pay for it along with not attending school. Derek often found it easy to be over looked but one could never be too careful when dealing with the secret identity that was Echo and the Black Cat. To help keep his secret identity an obvious secret, Derek was able to land a job as basically the equivalent of a janitor. All Derek had to do at this job was come into the local club anytime during the day before it opened and clean up from the night before. It was simple, paid the bills, and the flexible hours were rather helpful.

Like today, Derek had left the apartment building at the crack of dawn to go free running for a while and using the city as his own personal gym the way he did every morning. Afterwards he went to his job and got it done quickly. Now he was on his way to pay their newest member a visit like he did on most days. Derek pushed through the doors once he finally reached his destination and listened to the bell chime to announce his arrival. The diner felt crowded for him as he searched for a seat until he found one near where the newest member, Kit, would be serving. He waited for his usual dinner to be served with a smile on his face when he heard his phone begin to buzz from his pocket. Derek pulled it out reading a text from their leader: Guys, we have a client. He's rich and impatient, so I'd get your asses here ASAP. Derek smirked as he opened up a new message and began clicking away at his phones touch screen keyboard. He sent a message over to Kit and waited to hear it buzz as well as he met her with a charming smile. Looks like I'll be needing a ride.



Once Derek had arrived, he slipped into the bar and through the groups of people like a shadow. He movements were as quiet as his voice as he slipped into the room in the back. He said nothing to the man sitting in front of them and actually managed to startle him a bit since no one noticed him enter like usual. All Derek did was give a nod towards his teammates and wait to hear what their mission was.

Hex:#4B5066 || Outfit:XXX || Codename: Blue Jay/Birdie || Current Bike: Her new Aprilia RSV


The theater lobby was practically abandoned since it was mid day and people usually liked coming here during the late evening to hang out so Audrey was just chilling in a chair behind the snacks counter. The chair leaned back on one leg as she threw up skittles into the air and caught them with her mouth, seemingly bored. Her eyes finally shifted to the clock after hours of trying not to bore herself when a smirk pulled at the left corner of her mouth. "Finally," she said to no one in particular as she hopped up with a new found energy and pulled off her red and black striped work vest that had her name tag on it. Audrey quickly clocked herself out and tossed her work vest with name tag into her locker in the employee's only little hang out room and exchanged it for her helmet, keys and jacket.

Audrey's stomach seemed to growl loudly as she walked out of that empty theater with only food on her mind as she swiftly pushed her head into her helmet and turned the key in the ignition, the roar of the engine of her second favorite bike flooding the parking lot. It didn't take long for her to pick her destination before her bike took off into the city.




Audrey pushed the door open to the diner that she spent a lot of her time at and held it open for a mother and her son before scouting for a free seat but that's when she spotted Derek and oh what the hell, right? Place was packed anyway and she wouldn't be finding another friend to share a booth with. Making her wave over Audrey raised her hands up but paused for a second as she thought then proceeded with the hand signs. "Yo," she simply said and signed before sitting down on the opposite side of Derek. "Looks like we both have food on our minds, huh?" She continued with a small smile before ordering what she wanted and joined Derek in waiting.

When the food arrived Audrey was chewing on fries as she stalked out Kit and proceeded to give her the tongue on occasions. Audrey was mostly done with her burger when she saw Derek pull out his phone but at the same time her phone also buzzed in her pocket leading her to follow his actions. Upon reading the text Audrey just nasally let out a sigh and sipped the rest of her milkshake as she was getting up ended up in an awkward position with her bending over to reach the straw while fully standing because she was too lazy to pick the glass up. "Alright Derek," she spoke while fixing her helmet hair only to put her helmet back on when she got on her bike. "Riding with me or Kit?" She finished before waving over Kit. "Apron off, Nametag off and any other article of clothing you want off, off but note this is a public area and you may get in trouble." Audrey joked, well the last bit the first two lines she was serious about.

Tucking the money to pay both her and Derek's bill under her empty glass Audrey slipped on her helmet and pointed to the diners doors. "Thata way." She said pulling out her keys and exiting the dinner the only thing being heard from outside was her engine roaring once more as she waited for her two friends to join her.

Following Derek into the bar Audrey greeted the bar tender with her usually two finger salute which was returned with a his own greeting for her that consisted of a secret little silly handshake that she created and two shots of whiskey because most knew that when Audrey arrived Kit wasn't far behind and vice versa. "Bottoms up." She cheered after handing Kit her glass, kicking back the amber liquid and slamming the shot glass on the table. "Time to get our asses in there because I'm pretty sure we're late." Audrey began walking towards the back before adding, "Well, I'm always late." A small chuckle escaped her lips upon entering the back room where everyone was already at. Audrey placed her helmet on the table while looking at the guy. He was too clean for her liking and seemed like a bit of an ass right upfront. "Has he told us what he wants yet Nate?" she asked, fixing up her helmet hair as she stood next to him facing the guy with arms crossed like her tiny self was going to intimidate anyone.

A hand shot out from under a pile of blankets, when Kit's phone began vibrating on her nightstand. She pulled it to her ear, answering in a sleep filled, groggy voice. "Hello?" Sitting up slowly, her eyes still half shut. Her unoccupied hand rubbing her left eye - glancing around her bedroom in her new apartment, still not completely use to it yet. It was her uncle on the other end, she nodded at his words, "Of course I can cover for her! What's she doin' at work anyway? Learn to control your woman." She teased lightheartedly, giggling when her uncle compared controlling Alice to trying to control a hurricane. "Call Terra and tell her I'll be there in thirty?" Her statement turning into a question near the end, knowing she couldn't promise to be there on time. Earning a loud laugh on the other end, then Chibs saying he'll call Terra and tell her she'd be there in a hour.
Forty minutes and one shower later, Kit was heading out the door, careful to not wake Mel as she slowly shut the door and locked it. Heading down the stairs, spinning her keys on her middle finger as she made a beeline towards her beloved '69 Dodge RT, opening the door - the familiar creak causing a smirk to slide across her face. Halfway to the diner, she cussed over the music. She forgot to leave a note to tell Mel that she was called in for another shift, glancing over to her phone she'd thrown in the passenger seat taking a mental note to text her roommate as soon as she arrived at the diner. But, the mental note was forgotten as she pulled into the parking lot, spying her aunt.
"Alice! Sweetheart, how are you?" She cooed, getting out of the car a bit too quick causing herself to stumble. She recovered quickly, walking towards Alice, ignoring the fact her car door was still open. "Now why are you working anyway? You know the doctor's orders. You're gl-glowing by the way! How's the lil guy anyway?" Amazingly, she barely took a breath between each sentence - so much for a slow talking southerner. Alice laughed, telling Kit about her recent doctor visit and how her little cousin was right on track and should be born within the next two months and Kit told her about how she was almost done with moving. "You go get rest now, ya hear?" Kit teased after ten minutes of catching up with her aunt, walking her to her car before heading back to hers and finally closing the door. Grinning as she pulled the door to the diner open, a small trick she learned that wouldn't make the bell go off. Greeting her coworkers and a few regulars as she made her way to get her apron behind the counter.

The breakfast rush wasn't too bad, having a break before getting slammed with the lunch hour rush. The diner was packed and her voice somehow wasn't horse from yelling all the orders - but the tips were good today, so she wasn't complaining. The crowd was slowly dissipating, most having lazy conversations in their seats after finishing. The bell was ringing less often, she was about to take a small break after refilling the tea pitcher, maybe sneak a few fries but she heard one of the regulars call her name. "What can I do for ya, Mick?" She called back, still turned towards the tea. The bell catching her attention as she glanced back, catching sight of Derek, grinning to herself as he took a seat in her section. She called his normal order back to the cook as she headed over to Mick, refilling his tea and taking a request for what song should be played on the jukebox. "Elvis? You're a man after my own heart, Mick." She teased, patting him on the shoulder as she headed towards the jukebox, spotting Rey holding the door open for Linda and her boy. She popped in a few quarters before shuffling through the songs, finding the one requested, having the kick the machine before it started playing. She rolled her eyes at it, as she looked back over at Mick, motioning to the machine as if it was a present.
She went back to the window where she usually yelled the orders, "Could you fix Rey's order too? Pleease?" Grinning when her coworker said she already put the order in and Kip was already fixing it, "Y'all are my favorites, you know that?" Earning her two laughs as she filled up two glasses for Derek and Rey. The same coworker pointing towards a table asking if Kit could get them, offering to take the drinks. Kit reluctantly agreed, catching Rey sticking her tongue out at her which she countered with a friendly birdie and wink. The table was a bit of a hassle seemingly, the two toddlers making quiet the mess which took up most of Kit's time, she didn't even get to take her friends their food. She was taking her cleaning rag back to its spot behind the counter when she felt her phone vibrate, pulling it from her back pocket and glancing down at it, reading the text from Nate on her lock screen. She placed it on the counter, so she could clock out and tell Terra she had to run. Her phone earning her attention again as it vibrated, Derek's name popping up on her phone, her eyes scanning over the message before they found themselves on Derek. She smiled broadly at him, nodding and holding up her keys.
"Apron off, Nametag off and any other article of clothing you want off, off but note this is a public area and you may get in trouble." Kit laughed loudly, "Aye, aye cap'n!" She said in a mock-serious tone, as she untied her apron, carefully took her nametag off and then jokingly started to slowly take off her plaid before busting out laugh. "Well, let's mosey!" She announced, southern accent full force, spinning her keys on her birdie finger with a smirk.





Following Derek and Audrey, Kit watched as Derek slipped through the bar without anyone noticing him. Greeting the bartender by throwing up her fingers as if they were guns, laughing as she took her spot beside Rey for their quick shot. "Down the hatch." She mumbled, throwing the shot back with a small wince.
"Time to get our asses in there because I'm pretty sure we're late. Well, I'm always late." Kit smirked as she followed Rey, her phone vibrating with the information Lucas had sent out. "Your tardiness has really tarnished your image, Rey." She teased quickly, looking up from her phone with a quiet laugh, following her friend through the door as she slipped her phone back in her back pocket.
Staying near the door once she entered, Kit leaned against the wall, glancing around the room at her fellow Black Cats before her gaze landed on the client. She gave him a polite smile when he caught her looking before she began to study her keys as if she hadn't just been caught staring. He reminded her of the guys her older brothers would invite to their house for their weekly poker matches. She glanced around one more time to see if Jerry had snuck in before she turned her attention back on Nate to hear about the job.

The angular momentum of an isolated system remains constant in both magnitude and direction. The angular momentum is defined as the product of the moment of inertia I and the angular velocity. The angular momentum is a vector quantity and the vector sum of the angular momenta of the parts of an isolated system is constant...

Daily visit to brother? Check.

Daily visit to Robin? Check, although he'd have to go back later if he wanted his screwdriver back. Eh, that could wait for tomorrow.

Now, it was free time. Jerry flipped the page of the book he was reading, leaning back against his seat. The young man was reading outside, seated on a bench in a park with his black skull backpack at his side and a black jacket resting on his lap. Dressed in nothing more than a simple white shirt with a tribal fire design printed on it in dark wine red, a pair of faded jeans and navy sneakers with thick soles, Jerry seemed like a highschool student relaxing the day away - even if he had graduated and was now in college as a freshman.

It had been hard to pay the bills at first, but the pay from his current job more than made up for it.

...conservation of angular momentum is an absolute symmetry of nature...

Jerry jerked out of his thoughts as his phone vibrated in his pocket. Pulling his phone out, he flicked a thumb through the screen to look at the screen. A message?

To: Black Cat Group Chat
Guys, we have a client. He's rich and impatient, so I'd get your asses here ASAP.


Great, just when he thought he could sit back and study for once. Not that he had a test coming up or anything, but what if he did? Rolling his eyes, Jerry flicked his phonescreen shut and tucked it back into his pocket. Standing with a sigh, he shot a look around him before heading towards the bar. It wasn't too near where he was, but no way was Jerry wasting cash on a cab when he could just walk there on his own two feet.

Well, getting more money isn't that bad anyway... Wonder what the client wants this time?

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

He made it to the bar in record time, although he was sure that he was late compared to the others. Well, whatever. Couldn't be helped that he was in a far location, right? Slipping into the bar, Jerry wrinkled his nose at the smell of alcohol (he'd get used to it quick enough, but the initial first breath was always the worst, ugh) and made his way quickly to the back.

Yup, he was late - if late meant being one of the last ones to arrive. Great... It seemed that negotiations had yet to start, though. Meeting Kit's eyes, Jerry gave her a slight nod before silently taking a seat near the edge, shooting a glance at the client as he lowered his bag underneath his seat. Face neutral, he loosely laced his hands together on his lap, sitting up straight like a professional as he waited for Nathan to speak.

He seems rich. Awesome. Now lets see how much he'll let us charge him...

He watched as everyone came in, offering the usual greetings. Mostly, though, he was watching the guy across from them. As everyone else came in and began to interact with him, his reactions were... interesting. At times, he seemed to be relaxed. However, there was a moment or so of tension through some interactions.

Once everyone was in, he leaned forward a little. "Alright, so, Mister...?" He started, raising an eyebrow. The guy matched his stare. "I don't see how my name is relevant," he replied, causing Nate to grin. "Smart. Alright, so, tell us the details. What you want us to do? Give us a starting amount, and we'll tell you our estimate. It'll depend on exactly what you want," Nate said, leaning back and folding his arms.

"I've just discovered that my... colleague has been using intimidation tactics to swing our buyers in his favour. So, I want him to swing in my favour. I want you to intimidate him. It's relevant to safety, so... hack his phone, jump him in the streets, break into his house. Make him feel as unsafe as possible. Price-wise, I'm willing to give three thousand. Each. For everyone involved in the attack. I don't care if it takes all of you, I want a good job done."

Nate had to make a conscious effort to stop his jaw from dropping. For a seemingly simple job, one with little obvious risk, that was a good, if not excellent, wage. He took a sip from his drink.

"What's the catch?" He asked. "Does he walk around with bodyguards or something?"
"Nope. He walks alone, in some of the worst parts of town. It should be easy for you," the man replied. Nate swallowed hard. The thought of jumping somebody who was walking alone was... too close to home. He'd been having more nightmares than usual lately, and even at the thought of it, his heart was starting to pound. Without looking at his phone, he sent a text to the group chat.

To: Black Cat Group Chat
Guys, you're gonna have to count me out of this. Little too familiar for comfort. I'm gonna stay here and keep an eye on things.


"We ask for half now, half when the job is done," he continued. "So, guys, c'mon, call. Who's in?"

As the others entered the back room, Mel greeted them with her usual greetings for them while with a client. They varied but were more or less a small wave, smile, or nod. For Derek though, her eyes roamed his form making sure there wasn't a scratch on him. She was aware that he could take care of himself, probably more than some of the others depending on the situation, but he was... he just brought out the protective, maternal side to her. All was fine it seemed. Her smile was a little bigger when Ty entered the room. She stuck her tongue out playfully at him, but for the most part her attention stayed on the client.

She stood beside him now and listened as he spoke about his mission. Her expression didn't change but her heart did a flip as he offered a price. It was a bit much, but hell, she didn't think anyone in the room would object to that much. She ran a finger over the client's skin, tracing circles and other shapes. She grinned at him every time his eyes fell on her. Her mind through through ways to scare the man and thought of a perfect one. Hopefully it would work in her favor. Unlike Ty and his computer skills all of hers were based on physical things: combat, looks, and voice. Voice could work over phone but wouldn't be nearly as effective as a woman as it would a man.

When Nathan asked for sign ups she spoke up first. "Oh you can definitely count me in, hotstuff." She said more to her client than Nathan, but he knew it was all apart of the act. All apart of Siren.

Cenna sat silently, waiting for the group to fully assemble. Andrew entered in his normal boysterous fashion, then came to sit by her. She smiled at him, and bumped his shoulder with hers in greeting.

"Heard you won your fight, congrats, Cherry pie and a shot of whiskey tonight to celebrate Okay?" Cenna said quietly to Andrew. Audrey caught her attention as she entered and stood by Nate. The eldest of the group members always had a commanding presence, despite her slight stature. She smiled in her direction as a greeting, before turning her attention to the man.

Once everyone was in Nate spoke up, asking the man his business with the group.
"I've just discovered that my... colleague has been using intimidation tactics to swing our buyers in his favour. So, I want him to swing in my favour. I want you to intimidate him. It's relevant to safety, so... hack his phone, jump him in the streets, break into his house. Make him feel as unsafe as possible. Price-wise, I'm willing to give three thousand. Each. For everyone involved in the attack. I don't care if it takes all of you, I want a good job done." He said. The monetary offer didn't make Cenna bat a lash. She didn't care about money, she cared about justice.

Cenna watched the man carefully taking in every aspect of the client, from the way he held himself to the way he spoke. It rubbed her the wrong way that he did not want to give his name, and it made her distrust for him grow.

"What's the catch? Does he walk around with bodyguards or something?" Nate asked practically plucking the thought from her mind.

"Nope. He walks alone, in some of the worst parts of town. It should be easy for you," was the clients mind.

Cenna's phone vibrated. She took her phone out and read the text.

To: Black Cat Group Chat
Guys, you're gonna have to count me out of this. Little too familiar for comfort. I'm gonna stay here and keep an eye on things.


Cenna frowned, slightly concerned for Nate. it wasn't like him to back down, but she knew if he needed to talk he would reach out...at least she hoped he would.

"We ask for half now, half when the job is done...So, guys, c'mon, call. Who's in?" Nate asked the group.

"I want to make one thing clear." Cenna said as she stood and faced the man.

"I don't like you, and I don't trust you...at this point, that doesn't really matter, however, if this is not legit, I will skin you alive...and trust me when i say i dont need your name to find you, and i know how to keep you alive long enough to get to the fun bits." Cenna finished with a kind smile that was at odds with her threat. Cenna stretched and pulled her hair out of her face before turning to face Nate.

"So, in other words I'm in....however I do have to get to work, like twenty minutes ago...so just send me a text with the details." Cenna said as she started for the door. No time to waste sitting around. She was lucky in the sense that the bar was not far from her Vet clinic. She headed down the street towards her work.

3000 dollars?! 3000 dollars! Each! For a freaking easy job! Jerry's eyes widened a fraction, although his expression still remained neutral. Inside his mind, tiny dollar bills were fluttering in front of his eyes around the rich man. No way am I refusing this job.

Just because he was taking it didn't mean he wasn't suspicious about it, though. People normally didn't pay that much for a harassment job, sad as it was. Frowning slightly, Jerry ran things through his head, ignoring the phone vibrating in his pocket.

Job: Make someone feel unsafe everywhere we go.

Who: Partner of the client.

How: Any method we can, so long as its not traced back to us or the client and does a good job harassing him or her.

Why: Colleague used intimidation on customers to get them on his side. Client found out, now he wants him to swing to Client's favor. Might have more than meet the eye....

How much: 3000 DOLLARS. EACH.


Yup, seemed about right. "I'm in." Jerry said. His tone was light and carefully measured, as if it weren't much of a matter to him, but his heart was still pounding at the thought of the money. He leant back against his seat, carefully playing it cool as he studied the man, memorising his features, taking note of his clothes and storing it at the back of his mind for later recollection in case they needed to track him down.

"While we can respect your privacy, we will need to know the name of your colleague. We'd hate to hit the wrong guy."

Jerry nodded, agreeing with Tyler. "Any additional habits you know about him would be welcome." He added. "It'd save us some time, at any rate." It'd also help confirm a few things, such as whether the man was close to the target or knew plain nothing. "And as our leader says, half upfront, half after. How soon can you pay us, and in what way?" Jerry asked, raising an eyebrow questioningly at the man.

Kit relaxed a little once Jerry arrived, but she didn’t stay relaxed long. Her eyes took the client in again, there was nothing that set off a red flag in her books. He seemed normal, but his pockets were clearly larger than most. seemingly from the sum Lucas had sent. Her gut was telling her to be polite and introduce herself, but she bit her tongue as Nate started to speak. Her eyebrows raised when the client said names weren’t relevant, her eyes on Nate, before they shifted back to Mister-Names-Aren’t-Relevant as he began to tell what he wanted from them. Kit’s eyes widening, not hiding her surprise at all. How can this man want to strike such fear in someone he refers to as a colleague? She’d been around in business deals between her father, brothers, and their colleagues…they were nothing like this, it was simple. There was an agreement, a sum of money put on the table and then a deal. Simple. But, this? This wasn’t simple. There had to be a catch…
Her eyebrows shooting up when the man said there was no catch. She absentmindedly shook her head as she tried to process things. Why was his colleague in the worst parts of town? How was he swinging buyers in his favor? Her jaw clenched as she thought about the things this man wanted them to do. Did his colleague have a family? Her mind was racing as she tried to reason as to why this man needed his colleague to be swung in his favor, if they were colleagues wouldn’t they already be in the same favor? Her phone in her back pocket brought her out of her thoughts as she swiftly grabbed it and looked at the text, brows furrowed before she slid the phone back in her pocket, eyes glancing at Nate for a fraction of a second before they were on Derek, giving him a concerned look before turning her attention back on the client.

Melody spoke up first, causing Kit to look in the direction of her roommate. If she was doing it, then Kit had the urge to come along or at least help with the planning. Then Tyler agreed to come along, so Kit was about to speak up and agree but Cenna spoke. Her words causing Kit to wince, not understanding the point in scaring the client if he’s willing to pay out for them to simply scare someone. But, her thoughts were disrupted when she heard her friend speak up.
"What she said.” Kit watched Rey in confusion as she went to follow Cenna, did that mean she was agreeing to the job? But she grinned when she flipped him off, shaking her head slightly as she turned her head towards Rey, giving a nod at her words. Before her attention was back in the room. Then Andrew agreed along with Cenna and Rey, his comment about free drinks catching her attention, before another voice caused her to focus back on the job at hand.
“That’s not a bluff just so you know. She’s a smart cookie that one, knows all the places to cut into a person to just keep them on the edge of that pain threshold right before they pass out. Fun to watch.”
Kit’s jaw clenched at Bree’s words, rolling her eyes before listening to what else she had to say. She had to give it to the girl, she was intimidating. She tilted her head slightly when Bree asked him what him and his client were selling…that was a good question, what was so precious about swinging buyers and his colleague in his favor?
Mei then agreed to help, so that was seven, Rey could ride her bike..she thought. They could fit in her car, but it’d be squished…Then Jae and Luke agreed as well. That made nine, Kit was thinking of some way to pack them all into her car, but it was proving difficult as her phone buzzed and then Jerry spoke up. Kit looked almost helpless for a second, she should have known Jerry would agree with the money being offered. Maybe it would be best if she sat this one out as well, these people knew how to handle themselves more than she did. Then again, she needed the experience. Plus, it’d mean she’d make sure no one would take it too far, knowing that would cause a bit of tension between her and whoever she was stopping but she was willing to take the risk.

“I can make him uncomfortable on the road, maybe mess with his car a little as well.” She offered, adding a shrug along with her twang, knowing that three thousand could go to unpaid hospital bills as well as the one coming up once Alice gives birth. Then she decided to send a text to the group as well, pulling her phone out and looking over Luke and Cenna's messages She had no knowledge in the tech side of things so she couldn’t help there, but getting intel tonight would be interesting even if it meant she was forced to wait in the car.

To: Black Cat Group Chat
If you need a ride during this job, you know who to call.

    Dɪᴀʟᴏɢᴜᴇ Cᴏʟᴏʀ ✧ NAVY|| Tʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛ Cᴏʟᴏʀ ✧ SKYBLUE
    Tʜᴇᴍᴇ ✧ i LOVE YOU BABY|| Oᴜᴛғɪᴛ ✧ X

_____There are things you plan for and things that you don't. Jacqueline planned for her afternoon to be calm and nice. Perhaps a nice cup of coffee at the cafe around the corner, and them a metting with a new perspective client requesting the services of her ragtag group of coworkers. Espionage was not her strong suit, but she's a far cry better at it than her father attempted to prepare her for. Leon was an assassin, and nothing else. And while no one would quite call Jacqueline the most elegant speaker, someone somewhere contributed a bit of charm to her character.
But, no, the evening would not go this way, instead she found herself in an alleyway, surrounded by two now-dead men slouched against the wall of the closest building. She sported a couple of swollen knuckles and a now dirty knife and she placed her hand on the opposite wall to collect her breathing. Merde. What a mess. But that's the world they lived in now. Where someone could be walking down the street and attacked for whatever they might have. Unfortunately for these two gentlemen, Jacqueline was no easy catch. In hindsight, she could have beaten them and let them live. It was certainly possible. But she would be lying if she said that her career had left her more than jaded and simply eager to get the job done.
She wiped her hand across her face, pulling it back to see a feel drops of blood trickling from her nose. It would heal soon, despite the pain. She stood to her full height and dropped her head back to take a couple more calming breaths. She brought her hand up to her inside jacket pocket and drew out her black, circular glasses, her father's glasses, and placed them on her face to cover the worst of the damage. Brushing the small amount of dirt on her sleeve she bent over and wiped off her knife on the shirt of one of the dead men. Where they were going they wouldn't need clothes.
Her long, black hair hung down her back as she finally made her way to the meeting point, now inexcusably late, but she had a feeling she wasn't needed for anything other than solidarity and presence. She pressed on anyway. When she entered the bar, most of the patrons were already silent as if they knew what was taking place, but they became more so as the last member of the secret group walked slowly across the establishment. She knew the door and knew to knock a certain amount of times to be recognized and paid no attention to the eyes on her back. She'd been through enough.
The door gave silently with nothing but a small squeak and she entered silently, closing the door behind her. She looked at her comrades first, her face an emotionless mask as it always was in these meeting, in spite of her injuries. Her glass covered gaze then slid to their client. They all looked the same to her, just someone else who needed a job done that only they could do, and she was eager as the adrenaline left over from her scuffle still swam through her veins. She did keep her voice level as she looked over the room again,
"Pardon."
before taking the last available seat, assuming she would be filled in once the meeting was over. Her voice only slightly gave away her exhaustion as her voice sounded deeper than normal and her accent had always been rather thick.

Ain't No Rest For The Wicked




The interactions between the Black Cat members and the client had been rather... Humorous to say the least. Threats had been made to the man offering much more money than was needed for a simple task though the members that made the threats were well placed. They didn't know anything about the man or his colleague. While his fellow members were loud with their thoughts, Derek was quiet with his own as he began to weigh in the mission. Senselessly torturing a man for stealing clients wasn't exactly something Derek signed up for. He preferred going after real criminals but there was a lot of money at stake here and with that much money there had to be a precise plan in order for it to go well so they could get played. The absence of their leader also meant someone had to set a concrete plan into motion and of course Derek already came up with a plan during the time he sat quietly as always.

Derek began to move through his team mates like the shadow that he was. He was careful not to bump any of them and really the only way any of them would have known he was there was the slight breeze he made as he passed them. Once again he went unnoticed by the client as he stood behind him with his arms folded staring blankly at his team. His arms began to unfold as he finally began to sign to the group only those who understood him when he signed would know what he said but that wasn't his entire concern right now. "I'm in." He finished signing and dropped his hands onto the clients shoulders with a tight squeeze startling him once more. Derek easily could have hit a pressure point on the man or do something more but that was enough to get the point across his other team members didn't... The client would never see Derek coming if he did anything to put his teammates at harms way.

With his point made, Derek walked away from the group and towards the door but not before stopping at Kit to tap her shoulder and get her attention. He nudged his head to point at the door indicating he was ready to leave and left with his phone out to send a group text: Let's regroup at headquarters. I have a plan. He moved through the bar area avoiding knocking into people and pushed the door open though he was kind enough to hold it open for Kit to walk out behind him. Once at her car, Derek began to show off a little as he ran and slid over the hood before jumping in through the window he left open for himself. He sat in the passenger seat with a huge grin directed towards her ready to enjoy their ride back to headquarters.

Things were winding down in the meeting. Yays and neighs spread through out the room as well as threats and bargaining. She thought it was incredibly childish to do either when a client was asking so little and offering so much for the task. She inwardly rolled her eyes at Bree who was always a little more aggressive. The first time they met, she thought that it was all an act, but lately she was beginning to doubt that. She hadn't heard Derek move about the room, but definitely saw him as he appeared behind the man that she was batting her eyelashes at. She felt her phone vibrate a few times where it was tucked into her sports bra during their meeting. She pushed the client back into Derek who scared the crap out of the guy as he grabbed his shoulders.

She laughed flirtatiously, pulled out her phone, and took a picture. Afterwards, she flipped through her texts. The only one she bothered to respond to was Kit's. She bit her lip and looked up at the man from under her eyelashes as if she was writing something naughty when in reality she was just typing,

Black Cat Group Chat:
Count me in, Kit. You know I'm always up for a ride in your wheels.

She looked over at the girl and winked. Just another Siren act and not something that had come from Melody. Derek had signed "I'm in" earlier and now she was getting around to signing back "Good. I got your back." Derek then made his way to the doorway and motioned for Kit to follow. She decided now was probably the best time to leave. She still needed a shower. She felt another text cause her phone to vibrate and she pulled it out. It was from Derek. Let's regroup at headquarters. I have a plan. She shook her head and turned to the client.

"It was fantastic meeting you," She said, her hands roaming the man's chest. "I look forward to working for you." She leaned forward and planted a soft kiss on the man's scrubbly cheek before turning and strutting out, swinging her hips with each step. Once she was out of his view, she sighed and rolled her shoulders, once more Melody.

Man that's exhausting sometimes She walked out to where Derek was waiting in the car and leaned through the window to ruffle his hair. "You know I love you like a brother Derek, but this is headquarters. Where else are you thinking we meet?" She texted the group

Black Cat Group Chat:
I agree. I think the most effective way to do this is to work together.

Locking her phone, Kit looked up, her thumbs nervously tapping the screen a couple of times before she crossed her arms. Pursing her lips, a worried expression settling on her face. From one perspective she understood where the guy was coming from, she’d seen his type before. Rich, wanting to make sure he had the intimidating factor of staying well off, but keeping his own hands clean. Then again, here she was easily taking hits on her paycheck knowing if she needed money her father was just a phone call away - but she was too stubborn to call. Her thought process being disrupted once again when someone knocked on the door beside her, wondering if she needed to open it.

Jacqueline answering her silent question as she came in, Kit’s head tilted slightly as she took in the last Black Cat. There was a slight hint of blood under her nose, which caused Kit’s own to scrunch with question. Her eyes followed the girl as she took a seat, deciding to leave whatever it was alone as she turned her attention back to her phone, seeing Mel had responded. She smiled, looking up to see her roommate wink which caused her smile to widen. Her eyes back on the client, surprised to see Derek behind him. Her smile falling into a smirk when he signed something, hoping he was agreeing too. Watching with amusement as Mel nudged the client into Derek who surprised him once again, she rolled her eyes with a small shake of her head as she watched Derek head towards her.

Glancing at him when he tapped her shoulder, easily pushing off the wall to follow him. ”Yes, your majesty.” She teased quietly as she followed him. Feeling her phone vibrate again but ignoring it since she had to make her way through the bar, waving at the bartender and not having as much luck avoiding people like Derek. Her accent heavy as she had to mumble multiple, 'Excuse me, sorry!'s.
”Thank you.” She mumbled to Derek, cheeks red from almost hitting the customers inside along with the fact he was holding the door open for her. She followed him, swinging keys on her right pointer finger, surveying the parking lot. Laughing as Derek slid over the hood and jumped though the open window, shaking her head as she opened her door. ”Ya know, one of these days you’re going to leave my window down and it’s going to rain and I’m really not going to enjoy kicking your ass for destroying my interior.” She teased, sliding into the driver's seat with ease, gently nudging him before putting the keys in the ignition, not turning them quite yet, since she spotted Melody heading their way.

Grinning as her roommate went over to Derek’s side, "You know I love you like a brother Derek, but this is headquarters. Where else are you thinking we meet?” Must have been about text she hadn’t read yet, but that didn't stop Kit from giggling as she leaned towards the wheel to get a better look at her roommate. Letting Derek sign his comeback before speaking, ”Fancy a ride?” Kit asked, not hiding her excitement, she enjoyed driving people around - also she noticed Mel's running clothes which meant two things, Mel wanted a shower and Mel had more than likely ran here. Leaning towards the two as she waited for the answer, gently nudging Derek with her shoulder this time. She could ask them how they felt about the mission, seeing what they had to say about the client.

Cenna fed Charly with ease, stroking his neck as she did. She listened attentively to Audrey as she spoke, while cleaning Charly's wing wound, and re-wrapping it.

"Well for starters that guy reeks of suspicion. Second, I don't like his face. Also, in all honesty I don't want to participate because I'm not fond of beating people up in a dark alley, it's not my area of expertise and I had my fair share of being the beaten in an alley but, I need the money." Audrey said practically mirroring Cenna's thoughts. Cenna did not like the idea of beating a man in an alley either...but now that she knew that Audrey needed the money, as much as she did, she was willing to do what it took.

"Anyway, uhm, now that I have seen this majestic beast called the charly, I wanna see those little kittens!" She wiggled her fingers cutely in a grabbing motion. Cenna grinned at the motion before returning Charly to his cage.

"Just a few more weeks before your free" she said quietly to Charly. She turned to Audrey with a smile and ran her fingers through her hair.

"Okay, to Catopia." She said with a hand gesture that indicated for Audrey to follow her. She stepped out of the room and towards another room that held all the cats and kittens.

"This is where we keep all of the cats, the ones that aren't in need of any sort of veterinary care..." Cenna trailed off as she looked around the room with a smile. Kittens and cats comingled , roaming about the large room that was a cat heaven. Scratching posts, beds, and climbing posts lined the walls. Cenna dropped to her knees and instantly the three kittens she had picked up ran to her. Cenna giggled like a little girl as she picked up awhite kitten, nuzzled it, and it licked her nose.

"We might have to bring home one...or all of these guys" Cenna said with a laugh as the second kitten, a black kitten clawed its way up her leg, mewing for attention. The third kitten, an orange and white one sat just below her knees staring up at her.

"This is why I do what I do..." She said with a grin.

Her phone vibrated, making her sigh. She pulled out her phone and read the text before sighing again and biting her lip.

To: BCG
"Let's regroup at headquarters. I have a plan."


"Looks like duty calls." Cenna said as she gestured to her phone assuming Audrey had recieved the same text.

"I guess the group wants to get a jump start on this one...guess the money is too much to turn down" Cenna said though she still had a terrible feeling about that man.

Cenna groaned internally before standing and turning to Audrey.

"Looks like Derek is taking lead on this, I'm going to go let my boss know I'm heading out early..." She said as she brushed herself off. She stepped out of the room for show, knowing full well she didn't have to tell anyone anything because she was not supposed to be in today.

To: BCG
I need to change for the mission. Be there asap.


She waited a few moments before entered the room again.

"I need to change before we go to the bar, do you mind?" She asked as she turned with Audrey with a tired smile before heading for the door. Again Cenna thanked the sweet stars that she only lived a few blocks from the Clinic and the Bar, they where in a triangle formation really.

Once in the apartment Cenna stripped out of her dress without a second thought as she walked through the living room. Beneath she wore a white lace baby-dolland pair of undergarments that matched. She kicked off her heals and headed to her room. A few moments later she emerged from her room in black running pants, black shoes, and a black tank, with her hair up in a pony tail.

"Okay lets hit it" She said with a grin.

Tyler sat back as the confirmations came in, rolling his eyes at the threats. For all their skill sets, diplomacy was still something they were sorely lacking in. Oddly enough, it wasn't something he'd want to change for the world. They were his family; flaws. aggressions and all. As they began to file out, Tyler felt his phone buzz again. This time he reached for it, figuring that it wouldn't be rude, since business was already done. "Leave the money on your way out," he said to the man, "Or a way for us to access it, and the name of the guy and we'll do our thing." Tyler read through the messages down to Lucas's most recent message to the group.

Whomever else want's to work on the tech side of things here, focus on the actual target, I'll play data-collection, oversight, and see whatever dirt we can dig out of Deep Pockets over here.

Tyler looked over at Lucas for a moment before he typed out a reply. He hadn't thought about it properly, but maybe Lucas was on to something about keeping tabs on the client. He would hardly be the first man to think that the promise of money was enough to clear up all his problems. That was exactly how politics worked. Hell they guy had probably dealt with Tyler's folks without even realising it.

To Black Cat Group Chat
I'll get what I can on the target. Just be careful okay guys, we're being paid to get the target not the client.


This was a business first and foremost and Tyler was pretty sure that not one of them could say they didn't need the money. "Word of advice if you plan on double crossing us. Don't. Between btz and I, we'll take you for everything you own and are. The other guys might land you in a hospital for a few days, but we," he indicated between himself and Lucas, "can bring you down without breaking a single bone in your pretty little body. Understand? Tyler added, satisfied that he had made his point.

There was a message from Derek in the group chat. "We might wanna hang tight, Derek's got a plan."

Ain't No Rest For The Wicked




”Ya know, one of these days you’re going to leave my window down and it’s going to rain and I’m really not going to enjoy kicking your ass for destroying my interior.” Derek gave one of his silent laughs when she nudged him and responded to her 'threat' with a nonchalant shrug. He was too worried about his habit plus he would definitely pay for her car to get fixed if that were to happen and he knew that she was aware of that. He noticed Melody approaching them out of the corner of his eye and knew exactly what was coming as soon as she leaned over into the window of the passenger side. His face scrunched up a bit as she ruffled his hair up but he did give in and relax towards the end before she spoke to him. "You know I love you like a brother Derek, but this is headquarters. Where else are you thinking we meet?”

Derek's immediate response was a childish grin towards his 'sister' followed by him signing a response. "I got preoccupied showing off for the southern belle." He was careful when gesturing towards Kit so that she wouldn't notice. Derek had a close enough relationship with Melody for her to understand what he was implying since Derek was far too stubborn to admit the truth. He continued on after his initial response. "I also need to clean up and get my plan written out for everyone unless you're in the mood to play translator tonight." He gave a cheeky little smirk just as Kit spoke up reading his mind. ”Fancy a ride?” Derek looked Mel over after Kit spoke and signed again with his quiet little laugh just as Kit nudged him once more. "You do kind of stink."

Derek stepped out of the car to let Mel in before getting back into his claimed seat on the passenger side from riding with Kit since she first joined The Black Cat. He sent a text to Mel once she got into the car as he sat in silence letting the girls converse while he just listened. She's going to ask about your opinion of the douche bag with big pockets and the mission he gave us. Derek had a knack for reading people though Kit took little effort for him to figure out. Though it did make him curious if she had it difficult or easy with him.

The car ride had been spent in silence... For Derek at least. He stayed quietly in his seat flipping through radio channels while the two girls conversed. He smiled to himself listening to their conversation until they finally arrived at the apartments. Derek actually opened the door this time instead of jumping through the window in order to let Mel out. He was quickly at the entrance to the apartment building with the door being held open for the both of them and then following behind with his hands stuffed in his pockets. His room that he shared with Tyler was right next to Mel and Kit's which always came in handy when Derek couldn't sleep. He smiled at the two before disappearing into his room and getting ready.

He went into his closet which held a series of outfits that were all black save for a few brown leather jackets though Derek decided to switch his brown one to a black one in case he needed to go out on the mission tonight. He undressed and carefully placed his outfit on his bed before 'showering' which meant taking a clothe and washing his body, deodorant and the best cologne money could buy, and finishing off with dry shampoo and a blow dryer through his hair. Thank god for dry shampoo. Once he was finished, Derek quickly typed up his plan and stuff it into a back pack to take with him before waiting for the girls in the hall. Once they were out, he went back down stairs to hold the door once more and gave himself a running start to this time flip over the hood of the car before holding the door open for Mel grinning over showing off once more.

Melody watched Derek sign a response and smiled at her "brother". So he had something for, Kit huh? "Say no more," she whispered to him with a soft smile and a slight wink. She looked over to where Kit was in the driver's seat. "Sure thing. We need to stop at our apartment before we go anywhere, though. I need a shower." Derek, thankfully, got out to allow Mel to slip between him and Kit.

"So what do you think this guy does?" She asked. It was more of a question for Kit than Derek since he liked to sit in silence and listen to the two of them talk. "And what about his co-worker? If they're really co-workers, I mean."

((sorry it's so short! D:))

"Sure thing. We need to stop at our apartment before we go anywhere, though. I need a shower." Kit nodded at her roommates words as Mel slid into the middle seat. Finally turning the keys in the ignition, a large smirk planting itself on her lips as the engine purred to life. Holding both the clutch and brake as she put the car in reverse, slowly letting the clutch out as the car rolled back, Kit skillfully watching through the rearview. The car was back in first and heading towards the road when Mel spoke up again.

"So what do you think this guy does?" Kit looked both ways before smoothly turning onto the road, shifting her body slightly into a more comfortable position. "And what about his co-worker? If they're really co-workers, I mean." Kit glanced at Mel for a second, thoughtfully taking in her questions, pursing her lips as she focused back on the road. "I dunno...there's a dozen things a guy like that could have done to make bank." She mumbled which caused her accent to thicken slightly, glancing out her own window for no reason as she thought of all the times her brothers had somehow come up with a lot of money by being friends with the right people. "Gambling, family business, sold an app, made a business deal, has friends in high places.." Kit continued with a nonchalant shrug, stopping at a stop light keeping her eyes on the light, her hand hovering over the gear shift. "The whole colleague deal is what gets me though, they're suppose to work together -," The light changed, so she swiftly hit the gas, shifting into second and heading down the road, "Not get one ups on each other. To make a partnership work there needs to be an understanding, they gotta communicate, and there sure as hell can't be any shady shit like this -" Kit grumbled, thinking of the lectures her brothers had given her about business deals, easily shifting the car into the next gear, "Or so I've heard." She quickly covered, clearing her throat before continuing on with her rambling, "Why would you need to sway a colleague in your favor anyway...shouldn't they already be on the same side?" At this point, Kit was practically just thinking outloud as usual. Her voice sounding worried as she finally glanced at her two passengers, "What sort of money is turning two colleagues against each other?" Seemingly done with her rant as she finally shifted into the last gear, cruising at a comfortable speed as she relaxed slightly into her seat - waiting to see what their take on the subject was.

Pulling into her normal parking spot, turning the engine off. Kit was slightly on edge, still thinking about all the possibilities surrounding the case. She opened her door at the same time as she pulled the keys out of the ignition, stepping out and closing it but not before she glanced over her shoulder for safe measures. Swinging her key around her finger as she followed Derek and Mel, shooting a smile at Derek when he held the door open for them. Following Melody into their apartment, locking the door behind her as she headed to her room, letting Melody take her shower. To pass time she decided to unpack a box, picking it up and setting it on the bed. She grinned as she opened it, a couple picture frames wrapped on the top. Sitting on the bed, she reached in and unwrapped them. Grinning down at her family as she sat them on her nightstand.
It wasn’t long til she heard the shower cut off which meant they would be leaving soon. Kit stood and headed to another box that had ‘JACKETS’ written on it in black sharpie. She opened it and grabbed her green jacket slipping it on, spray a quick mist of coconut perfume on her before heading towards the door. Her face scrunching up as she realized she was forgetting something, turning on her heels as she went back over to her nightstand, opening the top drawer, grabbing a large pocket knife and slipping it into her back pocket - her plaid shirt and jacket hiding the visible lump it caused in her back pocket. As she headed out of her room for the second time, she grabbed her snapback hanging on her bed post as she headed into the kitchen. Rummaging through the cabinets, finding a box of cereal, grabbing a handful and setting the box back in it’s place. Knowing Derek was probably waiting for them in the hallway so she headed out the door, grinning when she saw Derek, giving him a small wave with her hand without the cereal, going over to stand beside him. ”Reckon this mission is gonna be riskier than it looks?” She asked, looking down at her cereal as she took a bite.

Once Mel had come out, the trio was headed back to Kit’s car - Kit pulling the keys out of the pocket of her plaid as they headed downstairs. Giving Derek yet another grin as he held the door open, rolling her eyes when he took off towards her car. ”You gonna do a trick too?” She joked, looking at Mel for a second before her eyes were back on Derek with a smile, shaking her head as she made it to the car, opening her door and sliding in. ”Back to the bar?”

Mel listened as Kit speculated. It made sense. Partners wouldn't turn on each other unless some serious bank was involved. Bank that might be better off in the hands of the Black Cats than a man willing to do whatever it took for his colleague to see things his way. Oh well, a job was a job and it was a better job than she would've had on the other side. The corrupted side. Which was ironic considering the things they did were usually pretty corrupted as well. She didn't voice these thoughts though, instead, she said, "Oh well. The deal is the deal."

They pulled up to their apartment complex and they all climbed out of Kit's dodge. Derek held the door open for the two girls--although Mel suspected it was mainly for Kit--and she smiled at him. They made their way up and into their apartment where Mel made a beeline for the bathroom to shower. Her running clothes were no longer sweaty and sticky but she knew she probably smelled. She stripped them off and started the shower until the room was full of steam before she climbed in. She used her scrubby and her lavender body wash to wash away the sticky residue that always seemed to be left after sweating. When she was clean, she turned off the tap, dried off, and moved to her room while wrapped in a towel. Thankfully, Kit was in her room so there was no worry of being seen.

When in her room she pulled out two outfits: her "mission gear" and her "Siren gear". You know.. for her plan. She changed into the former and packed the latter into a black slouch backpack. She tucked a combat knife into the one legged holster on her hip as well as her lock pick kit. You acquire some interesting things working for the Black Cats. She stowed another, simpler knife into her bag as well as a bottle of her best perfume. She slung the straps over her shoulder and made her way out into the hallway where Kit and Derek were already waiting for her. She locked the door behind her and they made their way down to the truck.

”Back to the bar?” Kit asked once the three piled back into her car. Mel glanced over at Derek and raised an eyebrow. "Not unless there's another headquarters I don't know anything about." she joked. A rarity for her, but she couldn't help it around Derek. He brought out the best in her.

Hex:#4B5066 || Outfit:XXX || Codename: Blue Jay/Birdie || Current Bike: Her new Aprilia RSV


Excitedly, Audrey followed Cenna into the other room but she kept that excitement hidden inside as her exterior showed a cool and relaxed expression. Okay, maybe she did have a bit of excitement spilling out of her proven by the eager smile that hung on her lips. Upon entering the other room Audrey was first surprised at how many cats there were then fascinated at all of the beds that hung from the wall and the cool looking scratching posts. Her eyes explored the room for a second before immediately fixating on the three kittens that approached Cenna because they were just so cute! "We might have to bring one home . . . or all of these guys." Cenna laughed only to have Audrey who already seated herself on the floor reply quickly. "I'd bring all three of them home now if we didn't have work." She smiled, picking up the black and orange kittens and setting them on her lap only to have the black one claw its way up her arm until it was on her shoulder and nudging its head against her chin while the orange one simply just cuddled up to her stomach and fell asleep. Instantly when Audrey heard Cen sigh her phone also decided to go off and so she pulled it out of her jacket pocket.

From: BCG

Let's regroup at headquarters. I have a plan.

"Looks like duty calls." Cen commented, Audrey looking up at her and nodding before setting the kittens backs down feeling a bit bad she woke up the one that fell asleep on her which was now her favorite. "I shall take you guys home, later that is." She chuckled, getting onto her feet."Looks like Derek is taking lead on this, I'm going to go let my boss know I'm heading out early." Cen informed and Audrey simply said "Alright" accompanied by a small smile as she was a bit distracted by the message she was beginning to type out before Cen left the room.

To: BCG
Okie dokie, be there soon.

When Audrey finished her text she stood there awkwardly for a few seconds, waiting for Cen to come back and also petted one of the older cats before Cenna re-entered to retrieve her. "I need to change before we go to the bar, do you mind?" She asked with a tired smile on her face. "Nah," Audrey said, this time holding the door for her on the way out. "I think I left my ice tea in the fridge. I was looking for an excuse to go grab it anyway." She smiled, again, heading in the direction of their apartment.



Upon entering the apartment Audrey went straight for the kitchen where she pulled out a bottle of her favorite, extra sweet pure leaf ice tea and took a few gulps from the newly opened bottle. When she turned around though, she was greeted a very sexy but barely clothed Cenna who caused Audrey to almost choke on her tea and go red in the face, quickly averting her eyes until Cenna was out of sight. "Damn," was all she could manage to mumble before walking herself over to the couch and tossing herself on it. While waiting she began to think about what just happened and how Cenna is able to frustrate her both physically and mentally before going red in the cheeks again as her mind wandered for a second but Audrey snapped out of it, huffed and ruffled her own hair. She began tossing her bottle up and catching it as a form of entertainment until Cenna remerged from her room all dressed and announcing that she was ready to get the hell outta here. Grinning back, Audrey waited until Cen passed the couch before standing up just to enjoy the view for a second, something she usually didn't do.




Before entering the bar Audrey took her keys to her motorcycle just to grab her backpack that held all the things she needed for the mission in the small compartment under her seat. With Cenna right behind her she slung her backpack over her left shoulder and pushed the bar door open, entering with a look that told everyone that she was ready. Ready for what they didn't know but all they could tell was that she was ready for whatever was about to go down. There was just this confident feeling around her at the moment that wasn't overbearing, so she didn't seem cocky but it was just enough to attract the eyes of some people, mostly of the female gender.

Since most of the group had dispersed in order to grab what they needed and get ready the back room was left a little empty but Audrey didn't mind. She casually tossed her backpack onto the small table where her helmet still laid and began pulling things out. First came her knuckle slingshot, the small device being no child's toy and easily clipped to her belt, hidden under her shirt just like her buck knife that she quickly inspected before sliding it back into her sheath that was located on the back of her pants. "So yeah," She began, taking glances at Cenna as she spoke. "I think I'm going to hang back on the beating." She paused, pulling out a small plastic container that held a whole bunch of very painful and dangerous little metal b.b gun pellets that she used as ammo for her slingshot and just slipped into her back pocket. "I'll do better with the whole breaking into his place and fucking some shit up type of intimidation." She finished, this time slipping on her black leather biker gloves that she had hanging out of her left back pocket this while time. Next came the white ear buds that she plugged into her phone and shoved back into her jacket for later, you know for when she starts smashing shit because Audrey loves her background music on the job.

Her trusty wooden bat leaned against the far right corner just itching to be used while the rest of the things that were in her backpack consisted of spray paint cans and a few white surgical masks for the fumes. After getting herself ready Audrey took another sip of her iced tea, sitting down on a wooden chair and leaning her head back so she was basically staring at the ceiling. "Got something we can do while we wait?" Audrey wondered a bit bored, blowing a piece of her inky black hair from her uniquely contrasting blue eyes.

22:00


Nathan took a mouthful out of his drink, sighing. He felt a little bad about abandoning the team- but it was too close to home. He could deal with vengeance- after all, that was what fueled him most of the time. But an attack on somebody who hadn't really done anything wrong- that was a little close to the bone. Maybe he could handle it during a good patch, but his current state of mind could only be described as "meh"- and that was at it's best. Still, he wasn't going to abandon them entirely. He slid his earpiece into his ear and opened the lid of his laptop. They'd invested in a communications system only a year or so ago, and it had made things much easier.

"Alright, everybody call with your positions. Remember, we're trying to frighten this guy, not cause any major damage," he said. He unlocked his phone and opened his conversation with Xandru, sending him a quick text.

To: Xandru
Be careful, okay? Finding another roommate would be a pain in the ass.


Even though everybody knew that they were best friends (with the occasional benefit) and lived together, but even that message felt oddly private. That and Nathan had an inkling that Xandru wouldn't necessarily be sticking to the main plan. He had complete faith that his roommate wouldn't do anything too risky, but even so.

Nathan leaned back and ran his fingers through his hair, opening up the GPS program on his laptop that allowed him to track the earpieces. If things went wrong, he could send backups to where they were needed, or even get his own ass in there as another pair of fists. He was aiming to avoid that, but even so, he was dressed in his fighting gear, just in case. Just in case.

22:00| Outfit





Tucked between her breasts, her phone vibrated. In the shadows of an alley across the street from the target's apartment, she pulled it out to check the message. Could someone come pick me up? The text from Wolfling read. Siren smiled and spoke softly--nearly a sultry whisper-- into the mic hidden within her necklace. "Looks like someone needs a pickup, Ryder." The door to the condo complex the target lived opened and a nearly naked Wolfling stepped out into the night. "And you might want to make it fast. She's dressed in little more than her birthday suit." It probably came off as arrogant, but when Melody was Siren, she was almost a completely different person. It was the only way she learned to differentiate between who she was and who she had to be.

The target had left his home earlier but seemed distraught as if he had forgotten something and turned back. Now she was waiting for him to return to the streets. She took a swig of wine from a canteen she had brought with her. If she was going to act the part, she needed to smell the part. Just when she was beginning to regret the boots she wore, the door opened and the target stepped out. The smirk on her face grew and she stepped from the shadows. Her boots made loud clicks on the concrete as she staggered towards the man. Her ankle screamed as she pretended to stumble drunkenly, but she pushed through it. Once she approached him, she feigned a stumble once more and slammed into his shoulder. She tumbled to the ground, thankfully just narrowly avoiding skinning her knee.

"Oh gosssh," she slurred. "I'm sso-" She hiccuped. "Sorry, sir." She looked up at him from under her eyelashes. "I guesssss I've had too much to drink tonight." The man was actually probably more handsome than their client. She could see how he could be a threat in that regard. Otherwise, she wasn't entirely sure. They still didn't have a ton of information on the guy, but whatever she could get right?

She took a deep breath and took note of his cologne. It smelled sweet and very expensive. Clive Christian perhaps? "Oh wow, guy. You sssmell fantastic." She reached up around his neck and buried her nose into his neck, pressing herself against him. "Makess me want to jump your bonesss." She turned her head to look down the alley where she hoped a dark shape that goes by Echo was waiting for them. She pulled back and looked him in the eye and raised an eyebrow. "You ever do it in an allyway?"

ImageBefore he really had a chance to respond, she pulled him down into the alley and pressed him against a wall where she bit and kissed at his neck. She giggled flirtatiously and reached down into her boot. When her hand came free she was holding her knife. With her knee, she played with him and then the blade replaced it. "Listen here, pretty boy." She said sweetly, tossing her long brown hair. "My client has requested a fair warning for you from some.. rather unfair people so you should listen and listen closely." She spoke close to his face, her face tilted slightly to the side, her body language tempting him. "When it comes to business, you may want to pull back a bit. Or a lot. It's really your choice, but do you really want to risk your boys?" She twitched her wrist ever so slightly. "Isn't that right, Echo?"

Ain't No Rest For The Wicked




The mission was simple... At least it could have been if complications weren't a thing. Derek had been hidden away gathering information hoping the technical side of the mission would come through and give Derek some form of justification for what they were doing over a large some of money. Instead, he heard Melody over the mic proving that his plan wasn't as well thought out as he had hoped. "Looks like someone needs a pickup, Ryder. And you might want to make it fast. She's dressed in little more than her birthday suit." Derek didn't say anything as per usual but he was careful in shooting a text over to Kit before he was on the move again. Keep your distance. -Derek Kit probably wouldn't be too happy with Derek's choice of words though he needed to be quick when he was out on the field and she did need to keep her distance. He feared he was too far away following the client to rescue to begin with.

The target was on the move again as he left his apartment making Melody noticeable as she trailed after him. Derek followed in pursuit as well using the darkness and the buildings to his advantage. He dropped down into an alleyway just as Melody was searching for him while she toyed with the target. He quickly secured his cap and mask to hide his features while he was still engulfed by darkness. He may be hard to see but Derek wasn't going to risk blowing his cover or identity that quickly.

Derek quickly moved as Melody began to bring the target into the alleyway. His movements were quick as he jumped and held onto a fire escape before closing himself up. It was a miracle he didn't make any sound though Derek did seem to have a certain knack for going unnoticed. He made a face in disgust as he hid in the shadows and saw Melody's method for 'luring' the target. He leaned forward just as she began to threaten him. What is she doing? Derek hadn't expected the threats to launch so quickly while they were still digging dirt on them though Derek still prepared his gadgets in case anything were to go wrong now. "Isn't that right, Echo?" Derek jumped down from the fire escape and silent emerged from the shadows startling the target even further.

He didn't say anything as always but he seemed more quiet than usual. He didn't move or sign towards Melody. He simply stood there watching them with his arms folded. he actually felt a bit bad for the guy mainly because he was a man as well and that definitely wouldn't feel pleasant. Derek then put a hand on Melody's shoulder as his way of telling her to ease up. They couldn't hospitalize him after all.

Derek decided it was his turn to take control of the situation as he rolled up his sleeves and stepped towards the target. "Who are you?" The man whimpered and pressed his back against the brick wall as Derek continued to stare at him with a finger pressed to his lips. He brought his hand to the man's throat to hold him in place as Derek took out his baton. He pressed the button and quickly jolted the target. He jumped and fell down but he wasn't in any serious harm. Simply startled. Derek then picked him up and in a series of swift movements, he was able to hold the client's face against the wall while using one hand to hold his arm behind his back and pressing to make him feel like his arm could break at any moment. Derek looked back at Melody and used his free hand to sign to her so she could be his voice. "Consider this a warning."

He waited for her to finished and pushed the target away though not before taking out a small white cloth and holding it in the targets face until he fell to the ground and passed out in the alleyway. Chloroform. Derek then turned back to Melody and signed to her. "Just in case he tries to follow us." He shrugged and climbed up the fire escape again dashing away all too quickly. He wasn't entirely pleased with everything that happened but at least they got a message across. Derek hoped he would listen before the real trouble happened.

Siren smirked as she heard Echo drop. It was very very quiet. You'd only hear it if you were listening for it. Which she was. Echo walked towards them and placed his hand on her shoulder to warn her to ease up. The gesture almost snapped her back to Melody so she shook it off. Not yet. She wasn't ready yet. He took over the threat, holding the man by his throat and zapping him with his baton. Echo's silence was a threat all on it's own. She signed to her to echo his statement and she did.

"Consider this a warning," she echoed sweetly. Echo put the man out with a white rag of Chloroform and signed to her. Just in case he tries to follow us. She winked at him. "Good thinkin'." She swayed her hips as they walked away, still in the part even though the target could no longer see.

She lifted her necklace a little closer to her mouth, without being so close she'd hurt their ears ,and said "Threat delivered and Target is out. Ryder, Extraction please."

As soon as they climbed into Ryder--Kit's--car, the persona of Siren would fall from her shoulders. She only hoped the others wouldn't look at her too badly. She did some pretty... unfortunate things when she was Siren. Hence the need for the split. Her voice broke a little as Melody threatened to come out as she nearly begged Kit to hurry. "Sooner rather than later, Ryder."
