The figure made his way in the direction of her voice, but as for intimidating sights went he was not that high on the scale. Sure, he looked like some sort of pale-purple alien in a war suit, but he was probably shorter than her (unless she was very short) and his voice carried a calm tone. He tilted slightly to the side to look past a tree and see the woman.

"Sorry... Did I startle you? I did not mean to." He actually sounded very neutral, almost robotic if it wasn't for the underlying human tones.

He stared for several moments, then answered with a cautious, "I was designed that way. I only have my missing creators to be thankful for." He didn't think he was beautiful. How could he be? He was a clone. For a brief moment he contemplated whether being a clone made him better or worse than what he was based off. "I am Z."

He stared from behind his visor. "I don't wish to lie to you. It is not neccesarily nice to meet you," he answered slowly. "I was hoping for answers not... Strangers."

He stared for a moment, then nodded. "It is only answers I hope for. Why I was created. What my purpose is." There were other questions which muddled his mind, but he wished not to dwell on them.

"Yes, I will come brilliantly," he answered, a hint of humour in his voice, or maybe it was her imagination. (It wasn't). He followed along behind her with surprisingly soft steps considering how much metal must have been weighing him down, as if worried about where he was stepping. His head was always tilted down, either watching where he walked or in thought. It was hard to tell without seeing his eyes.

When she walked into a tree was the moment he realised she had been looking at him, suddenly watching her from behind his visor. What a curious... Individual. He decided that maybe conversation would be the best route. "I think I am a clone," he informed her, "I can remember flickers... Memories from when I was contained within a tube. I think I was the second. They kept referring to me as 'two'."

He turned his head forward, silent for a moment. "I have no idea. That's what I'm trying to find out." There was a hesitation. "I fear I was a weapon." Another pause. "No, I don't fear being a weapon... A fear a lack of purpose. Is it better to be a weapon than to be nothing?"

He stared at her, then nodded. "I have heard that. But it will not answer why I was created. Or what I was created from." Now that was a question of great curiosity to the experiment. They were number two, but to what?

He nodded. "If there is something to be found," he added with a hint of negativity, "But thank you."

The backwards and roundabout path concerned Z. He felt like he was lying. Sneaking around to ask questions he made no effort to hide. "I just want to know what I was created from, and what I was created for." Should this be the right company and Grenadine be particularly good at hacking, two things would be uncovered. The first would be his purpose, specifically that he was created, along with many others like him, to be biological weapons latent in psychic powers.

"Oh," he said, a downtrodden echo to his voice. "Anything else?" The only other piece of information that was confirmed was a name. 'Mewtwo'.

He had been motionless until that point, this creature dubbed 'Z'. His pale flesh made him almost blend in with the scenary, especially with all the metal covering his form, from helmet to chest to lower body. But as she approached his head turned to stare at her through the dark visor at the front. Not a human creature, they rose to their feet and looked down from their high-perching on top of a pillar.

It was obvious that despite his high ground, he was not tall, maybe four feet. His legs were massive compared to his upper half, and instead of fingers he had grippers. "Hello," came the calm voice from the creature, reverberating behind their helmet. The helmet gave off the impression of a more reptillian creature, though a lack of scales seemed to indicate otherwise.

And then they descended, dropping the short distance from pillar to floor. "Did you come looking for me?" he asked.

"Yes, I did," he responded calmly. "I did not mean to, though."

He tilted his head. "You seem worried. I hope my presence isn't a source of discomfort for you..." He turned his head sidewards, staring into the trees. "But I guess I have made for a poor first impression. May you give me a chance to make a new one?"

"I am Z," he answered, looking down to her hand and raising his gecko like counterpart to shake. When their hands touched she would likely be able to feel the grip behind those fingers, certainly enough to help him stick to walls and maybe even ceilings without that heavy armour on. "That is all I am known as, but I do not mind."

"It is nice to meet you Analisa. What brings you to these... parts?"

"You don't need to go. It is not that I am expecting someone specific at a specific time, but that I think someone will come for me eventually. It only matters when." He looked down to his hand in thought, then back to her. "So I wait here, near the ruins of my birthplace, hoping one will come." Of course, he was talking of a place more sinister than the ruined stone. An underground base.

They tapped the floor with their large foot, which seemed almost kangaroo like in shape. "Not here, but there." He was referring directly to the ground, or specifically under it. He cocked his head. "No, but... It was strange. Like being semi-conscious all the time. You hear glimmers of words and sights, nothing solid. Your memory is a haze..."

He rolled his shoulders, chest plate lifting and falling with it. "Until I was rescued."

"A woman. I think it was an accident. As far as I have discovered I was a discarded experiment, left to rot in the tank I was birthed in. She stumbled upon my chamber and released me." He sounded almost thoughtful. "And that is why I wait. To discover what purpose my creators had for me."

"I do move about and feed myself when neccesary, but for the most part I sit in meditation, yes." His next shrug was almost a casual acceptance. "Then I will wait a long long time. I have nothing else to do."

"Yes." If she could see his face, he would have been frowning. "I try to draw on my memories, and failing that I seek comfort in clarity of thought. Sometimes this world seems a burden. If I am to carry this burden, I must first know I am meant to. Otherwise I may set out to do the right thing and... Do it wrong."

He cocked his head to her once more, fingers pressing together in front of him. "I guess it must seem a selfish way to live. But I will trouble myself with the world when I am meant to."

"I do not know," he said with a shrug, his voice becoming light-hearted and well-humoured. "I guess I just think highly of myself. But I am not worried about danger. I only wish to know my purpose. Once I know it... I guess I'll decide then if I will follow it."
