Zolya let a cheeky smile adorn her face as the two before her went on a full defensive, especially the mechanics flustered reaction was just too perfect. With her at just the right height combined with the cybernetic ninja's words a little naughty thought entered her mind and no sooner she grabbed Ako around the shoulders and pulled the mechanic girl face first into her pillows. "Seems he likes them like this. Hmmm, too bad I'm not interested in a purple wand." She says teasingly letting the poor mechanic girl go as she brings her hand to her face to give the illusion like she was seriously considering it.

She walked to the table on which Temujin was splayed out settling to half leaning half sitting on the table. "That being said you might as well sculpt him to your liking, a build a boy if you would. Not like he is in any position to stop you right now." Zolya teased poking the cyborgs detached arm on the last note.

The Templar seemed to immediately light up upon the mention of cookies an excitement that was extinguished just as swiftly as it's onset as it crumbled against Alex's barriers around her face. "Ah right, he didn't leave even that little area without his layers of barriers." Raudd mumbled just as the man in question walks onto the premise claiming he brought something to eat. "Great, mystery meat." He mumbled trying to take a peek through the door what the cat dragged in, luckily though he had used enough common sense to not drag it further inside than the kitchen where the catch lay out of sight of Raudd. Blood stains on anything other than glazed tile would always be a disaster.

As he looked back to the templar though he noticed she looked a lot more tense than a moment before. Though it took a moment to process the information with Alex interrupting his thoughts with his talking things clicked for him. "Well now that's something." He mumbled before turning his head to Alex. "Aegis, go back to the kitchen and close the door behind you, after that you can slowly release the barriers." He said trying to convey the seriousness of the situation. Last thing they needed was that templar going berzerk in the house due to a trauma caused by Aegis' prior actions.

Zolya now taking note of the situation thanks to her brothers tone walked over to the window side of the bed and squatted down next to the templar. Miss, we'll take you to a doctor or if you want we could ask a doctor to come over, but first you need to listen to me. It seems you've had a psychosis of some kind after you fell down here, you were attacking everyone in your sight, hence the restraints. While we've been talking you seemed to have been mostly calm, but upon the sight of Aegis..." She calmly explain, but the moment she said Alex's name she realized she may just stepped on a potential landmine and Raudd sensing the same quickly stepped in or rather stepped in front of the door covering Alex from her sight.

... Upon seeing him you seemed to become very agitated. It might be triggering some kind of trauma, so for now he's going to remain out of sight and I would ask for you to calm down so we can help you. Do you understand what I just told you?" She finished with the same calm tone of voice. It wasn't the complete picture of what happened, but keeping the shapeshifting monster out of it for now was probably in everyone's interest.

"I hit my head pretty hard when I came down. I don't really remember anything after that," she answered slowly. Her tone had shifted, and she seemed to be regarding everyone much more cautiously. The only reason she wasn't pavement pizza was the suit... what was left of it, anyway, but they didn't need to know that.

Yue pressed her lips together. The head injury she suffered might be more severe than she thought, and a lot of other unlikely things would have had to align perfectly. If she suffered a TBI, even a minor one like a concussion and then was driven to a catatonic fear state she could see her body acting autonomously in pure self-preservation mode... It's not like there wasn't precedence, but she was a child at the time and Titan had scooped her up a little too roughly, so he didn't press charges after she put him in the hospital.

If one of did something that could be perceived as aggressive then she couldn't be blamed: It's legally self defense after that... Besides, the only thing nowadays that could drive her that kind of fear were giant spiders... and there's no way those are real!

No. Let's face it. "BuT hE STaRtEd iT!" is a tenuous legal defense at best. We're going to jail. In Hell. With no internet GOD how will I survive?!

Alex glanced between Raudd and the templar before giving a curt nod. She did kinda go ballistic on him before and he did toss her around like a ragdoll, probably for the best that he gave her space. Alex waved to everyone else present before closing the door behind him and heading back to the kitchen. He had to figure out how to prepare this thing. Eyeing the beastly corpse one last time, he decided he would figure it out as he went. taking of his gloves and getting washed and prepared before he really got to cooking got him time to really think. There was a Templar down in the undercity. with any luck that meant the various gangs and factions would hear hear about this sooner or later. Depending on hos this goes it could become easier or exceptionally more difficult to get the stranded woman back topside. Given that Alex went up top a bit more regularly then the average undercity resident there was a good chance of him staying involved with this mess. Not that he would ever complain to helping someone, he just REALLY didn't want to potentially have to deal with a woman constantly trying to harm him the entire trip. Alex's thoughts wandered for a bit after that as he began butchering the creature with barrier made implements and blades. best not to dent or damage Zolya and Raudd's kitchenware in the prep phase.

He had just started to crack open the shells to get too the beasts meat after having removed its tentacles when his helmet lit up with a call coming in. Dean on the other end, better check that out.

"Talk to me buddy. What's happening on your end?" He grunted a bit as shell pealed away from crustacean like flesh. Dean sounded a bit frazzled on his end. "You want the good news or the bad news my man?" Alex took a moment to consider before shrugging to himself. "Lets hear the good first" He was more the type to hear the positives first anyway. "Few people got eyes on your little scuffle out there big man. Words going around the other rogues and you got left a message a bit ago, not sure when Ninja or the others will get it but . . . . It sounds like the rest of the big names in the collective want a meeting. At Nowhere tomorrow night." Alex bit his lip in thought at the news. the reason was obvious enough. Still, meetings didn't happen in the Collective down here unless it was urgent. "They want to work out what's gonna happen with a Templar down here." There was a nervous laugh on the other end. Dean was holding back his usual level of jokes, which meant the bad news was probably gonna suck real hard. "Nobody wants a Crusade happening anytime this decade if they can help it. ready for the bad news?" Alex took a deep breath. "What's the damage?" "Someone ratted to the Horde." Alex let out his breath in frustration. "God damn it." Anyone going topside would have to go through the Halcyon Horde to get the needed credits and bribes for the safest routes topside. if they already knew ahead of time, this could get difficult.

Dean hung up after that, stating he was gonna snoop around some more. Alex in the meantime needed to distract himself, An pan fried "seafood" was the best kind of distraction. He did end up taking some seasoning and veggies from the pantry. cant go wring with some lemon juice either. it was starting to smell great, and a quick taste test proved that it was crab in flavor and very delicious. As the cooking started to wrap up, Alex popped on his helmets music and cranked it. upside to having durable as hell physiology? No hearing damage or ringing from blasting his music too loud.
Turn up the amplifier!
Fire up the engines!
Our mic checks have bounced back so,
Pay me with attention!
Sick of the status quo!
The extra ordinary!
Twisting in the business of
Stereo monotony!

With Alex complying to Raudd's urgent request and returning to the kitchen to deal with preparing whatever monstrosity he had brought back with him the disposition of the templar seemed to be calming down, the layers of barriers coming down must also have contributed to it. Though she didn't seem to be calming down completely, but rather than an agitated state it looked more like she was experiencing a mix of worry and fear, perhaps she was really worried about the injuries she might have sustained. "Right, I'll go get the doctor, hopefully she has time right away." Zolya said as she got up from besides Yue. "Maybe I'll take you up on that offer one day, though you'll have to serve me something better than nut butter." She teased Temujin as she walked out of the door.

"Speaking of the doctor, I'm pretty sure Aegis is using the white muscat the doctor made. So if you like it she probably still has a few bottles for sale from the last batch." Raudd said to Ako before taking a sip of his tea. "Oi Temujin, let's leave the organisation out of this. She got dropped through a plate gap while battling some teleporting murderer, she isn't here on a mission to meddle with the undercity. Besides they haven't given a damn about the undercity before why would they suddenly start caring?" He retorted to Temujin's rather abrasive question.

In the meantime Zolya had reached the address of the doctor. She entered through the door of the clinic side to luckily find an empty waiting room. "Dr. Mahmud are you here?" She called through the clinic. Followed by the sound of some rummaging in the backroom and a lithe black woman with long wavy black hair appeared from around the corner in a labcoat, mask and gloves splattered with a mixture of dark red and yellowish dots. "Oh sorry, I didn't know you were helping a patient." The doctor gave Zolya a confused look before looking down at her clothing and laughing. "Oh, non non mon cherre, I was marinating meat for a barbecue tonight. But w'at brings you to my clinic? You're not 'urt I'd 'ope?" She asked with a light french accent.

"Alas I'm not in need of a, physical examination. There's a person at my house that has fallen from the plates all the way down to here, I want you to give her a once over as we're worried she might have an concussion or something." The eyes of the doctor bulged widely as Zolya explained the situation. "She fell from up t'ere and only might 'ave a concussion? She's lucky to be alive, I will come right away..." She then looked at her gloves before adding on. "After I've gotten a change of clothes."
