The recon team finally up and left just barely half an hour ago and that was with Ilav rushing them in his eyes they were slow to leave a place they didn't want to be. Using their computers and pulling all the information they gathered onto his PDA Ilav would await. Icki informed him that Bex would most likely be arriving today and warned him that he granted her access to explosives just in case she decided to try and kill him.

Pulling a menthol cigarette out from his pack before using his Zippo with a gothic styled letter I as it's design he would light up the cancer stick. Taking a drag and inhaling what would be cancer to most people as he waited. Ilav would take out his PDA and begin reading information the Recon team had gathered up. He rose a brow when they collected odd Glyphs of what seemed to be an alien language on terminals they located over time. It was almost as if he immediately was able to understand the originally gibberish cave drawing type symbols that made this races language." Perks of being a Murokumo odd...they loved to speak about humans for some strange reason."

He spoke to himself as he patiently awaited the arrival of Bex unfortunately Icki forbid him of using his true form on this mission unless it escalated to an extent where it was required. Still a bit mad about that he took another drag from his caner stick continuing to look over the findings of Icki's properly designated RT.

When Bex had finally arrived Ilav got up from the rock he was sitting on before adjusting his coat and gloves. Pocketing his PDA and taking the next drag off his smoke with a slightly smirk as he moved over to Bex.

" Well good morning there about damn time you arrived here. Ok three things I want to get out of the way the very first congratulations on deciding to work with Mr.Indigo don't fuck it up. Secondly Mr. Indigo has decided to kill two birds with one stone today he knows you can handle this solo, however he also wishes to knock out the rather simplistic orientation out at the same time. So if you think your brain can handle simple instructions and not shut down when you here a word with three syllables then we'll be just dandy. Thirdly our scans were both correct and incorrect technically there is no life on this planet, however there is some synthetic creatures wandering about this world. So far they haven't posed a threat odd things like robotic birds and machine dogs but keep in mind there may be danger when we get to our objective."

That said he finished his cigarette before flicking it to his right and watching it drop off the cliff as he grinned." I have the location of the structure they located the Prize in."

Pointing at a massive over hundred story tall building." You see that big ass building right there that is nice and all shiny. That monument to a futuristic society's achievements? Yeah the building we're looking for is right behind it."

Bex Pierce looked totally displeased about the entire situation. It took her two very long minutes after he stopped speaking to holster her weapon, albeit reluctantly. She so wanted to do away with this guy, it wasn't even funny. "Yeah figured that there was some trick to it." She said. She slowly walked forward. "Let's just get this over with, and do me a favor..? Don't slow me down." She growled.

Her mint hues gazed over to the building with disinterest. "Welcome to the new age, eh?"

" Look I'm not happy with this situation either quite frankly I still think you're a liability, yet for some odd reason Mr. Indigo still chooses to ignore my concerns about you. Now with that said this whole let's just get this over with is an attitude I don't appreciate. We're not friends you and I quite obviously however we just need to make the best of this."

That said he started to walk along the side path that would take them down from the cliff and into the the not so far distant city ahead. The streets were cracked and plant life began to sprout out from between these cracks. What were once white streets were now turning green with both moss and grass. The grass reaching up to their knees due to nobody to manage it." If you don't mind me asking Bex and this is completely off the record just so you know. How did you meet Mr. Indigo and more importantly what are your thoughts on him? You know by now he and I are rather close and well I figured that I might as well attempt to get to know our newest associate better. It'll help me decide if you're going to be a worth while ally or if you're just going to be a fucking cunt the whole time."

Ilav chose to use this alone time to hopefully get a good idea of who he was dealing with. As they proceeded down the street Ilav stopped staring at what seemed to be a downed human drop-ship before he slowly shook his head." So that's what happened to the second Recon Team."

Bex Pierce rolled her eyes. "Yeah yeah." She grumbled, starting down the side path a little behind him. She figured he was not the kind have your blind side on. She walked almost noiselessly, impressively so.. Even her steps in the grass made barely a rustle. And she seemed to be walking normally.

"If it wasn't so over bearing with.. Well, death. It wouldn't be a bad place to set up shop.." She murmured, looking about. "It's more like Icki met me." She sighed. "Was 'bout to give up tryin' to find any contacts. 'E and I got to talkin', found out we were both lookin' for similar prospects. An' 'e dealt with my foul attitude like a champ, so figured 'e was worth a shot." She murmured. "As for what I think of 'im? Well, 'e's a down right bastard. But a good one." She shrugged slightly. He did ask for the truth, she wasn't going to sugar coat it.

The human drop-ship was not a great sign. Bex smirked. "Well, guess things are gonna get interesting.." She murmured, walking over slowly to the drop ship to see if she could find anything worth salvaging. Her hands, however, were kept close to her guns as she passed Ilav. She felt he was her biggest threat here.

Ilav moved over to the drop-ship before sighing as he grabbed onto the exit hatch which due to the heat as it crashed ended up being welded shut. He pulled on it and with almost no effort ripped the door right off before throwing it to the side. Not caring about the noise it made he wanted to search for survivors.

" I'm not going to lie to you Icki can be a bastard at times and sometimes not even a good one. But at the same time he gives me money which I need to pay my bills and keep to the side in case somebody actually finds a Muro....someone like me worth while. Not going to lie to you odds are whatever jokes you're going to make about there being a better chance at Icki finding someone is definitely completely accurate."

That said he looked amongst the bodies mostly scanning detecting no signs of life before shaking his head. He grabbed all of their I.D.L.T.s and pocketed them before moving to the cockpit to the black box." The only thing worth salvaging is the medic's supplies and maybe a couple magazines of ammo would you be as kind as to grab those for us."

Ilav lit another cigarette as he started to mess with the Black box trying to find the time before their crash.

" When they were arriving on this planet the five moons it has interfered with all incoming and outgoing transmissions. It wasn't until they were planet side and started using the satellites that were already here was when we were able to establish contact. Then again we warned them of that we told them it might very well be a dangerous job."

That said Ilav continued to tinker with the Black Box before he slammed his fist through what was once the ships navigational computer." Dammit and I was the one that suggested we send them in and it got twenty-six good men killed."

He quickly cleared his throat taking a drag off his cigarette before the Black Box finally kicked on." Finally ok I'm about to play the recording if you want answers I suggest you get up here."

Bex Pierce blinked as Ilav smashed his fist through the computer. "Yo, chill. Ya want to gain attention?" She murmured, peeking around to see if anything had started to try to sneak up on them. "People who get into this type of business know the risks. And the obviously didn't roll the right number this time." She muttered.

She moved towards the man as he got the Black Box finally started to work. She pulled off her pack and pulled out a bottle of Whiskey, handing it to the man.

[color=purple]After finding the right recording he shook his head at the offered whiskey Ilav wasn't really a drinker he barely drank anything alcoholic. Taking a long drag from his cigarette before pressing play and leaning back to hear what happened blinking as the monitor above it kicked on with the image of the scene." Hmmm we also have visual this should be interesting."

Both pilots were disengaging the auto-pilot as they were approaching the planet's atmosphere." Gentlemen and lady this is your captain speaking we're about to enter atmosphere. We ask that everybody get ready to strap in and before you say anything Foreman I said strap in not st..." The man was cut short when they were almost flung off their seats one of the recon team flew forward and slammed right into the front window of the drop-ship.

" What the fuck was that?" The co-pilot asked as they attempted to assume control it wasn't long before the pilot groaned." The ship isn't moving are we caught in the gravitational pulls of the three moons we passed?" The shipboard A.I. responded." Negative an unknown phenomenon has us trapped I ill advise attempted maneuvering out of it's grasp. Unless you wish the ship to rip itse...."

The A.I. suddenly shutdown as emergency power kicked on." We've lost power, can't move, can't communicate with the other ship less like with home, and Keller just went offline anything else wish to go wrong?" One of the Recon team member moved up to the cockpit." I wouldn't be asking th..."

An odd yellow light shined through the front window as the co-pilot stared." What the fuck is that? Am I the only one seeing this?" Pilot" No...you're not is it scanning us?" Co-pilot" Whatever it's doing I don't like it...do we have any weapons online?" The recon team member grabbed the pilot's controls and smirked." Let's find out...firing Red Glare One."

When fired the missile immediately launched and hit dead center of the light putting it out revealing a ship twenty times the size

dropship. It wasn't long after before it fired several claws at the ship latching on and immediately began dragging the ship down to the planets surface. The panic within the drop-ship was understandably over dramatic it wasn't long before the unknown ship sent a green light inside of the vessel. The front window turning to dust and right when the crew immediately burst into flames was when Ilav stopped the footage.

" Holy shit..."

Bex Pierce shrugged and bit off the cork. "Suit yourself.." She murmured, taking a sip.

She watched, but just the like the pilots, she couldn't understand. Her brows furrowed, but otherwise remained moot the point of their panicking. She lifted the bottle and took several swallows from with and then let out a sigh. "So. As I said before. I guess things are gonna get interestin'." She grumbled.

"The less time we're on this planet, the better. Let's get movin'." She stated.

He hooked his PDA into the black box and transferred the file unto it before sighing. He immediately moved off the drop-ship before rubbing his forehead it wasn't long before he lifted his hands and both of his handguns appeared in both hands. They were rather unique weapons at first appearing like a basic 9mm handguns before suddenly the excess on the handles broke off and just floated along the side of the guns like fins. Before long the fins began to glow green and in the weapons design a blue like began to pulse through them.

" The building we're looking for is only another three mile hike...let's get moving."

He was mostly silent at this point as they hiked along getting closer and closer to their destination." Assuming it's a ghost ship but I can tell you this much judging from the buildings and information the Recon Team gave me it doesn't fit the technology on this world. When we both flew in we didn't have a run in with any resistance odds are it was just a random incident. Happens all the time during intergalactic travel believe it or not. Normally it doesn't involve somebody dying but you'll just so happen to cross paths with another ship from a different species."

That said he looked around a bit more before stopping staring at a rather ruined building." Right here...this is where they found it and judging from the looks of the outside the team never set up shop here so there shouldn't be any dead bodies in there."

Taking a look around real fast before looking to the building before sighing." All of this for two damn weapons...Icki better know what he's doing." That said Ilav moved through the door or what was left of it before looking down to his left at the hole in the floor." Well there's easy access to the basement..."

That said Ilav jumped down before looking around." According to the Recon team this building was used to house a secret armory for the military in case of planetary assault. That way if they got cut off from their F.O.B. or their entire command was shattered they could still use this as a way to re-arm and continue the fight. These bastards thought of almost everything."

Bex Pierce groaned as she watched him jump down into the hole. She holstered her weapons once again, sliding down slowly, making no noise as she hung there before she finally let go to let herself drop the rest of the way down. She was only human after all.

"Yeah, obviously they didn't think of -everything-." She commented, pulling out her pistols again. "Otherwise, they'd still be here.." She added in a whisper before moving away slowly. She began to look around for the rifles, wanting to get out of there as quickly as possible. "So what's it between you and Icki, eh?"

" Icki and I have been friends for quite sometime and business partners since the very start. He saved my life in more ways than one. Freed me from captivity, repaired the damages done to me, helped me figure out who and what I was, and finally introduced me to my ex-wife. We didn't get divorced she died about twenty years back had a secret life I didn't know about and eventually she died in the line of duty."

Pausing for a moment to light up another cigarette before moving through the corridors." Icki tends to only see the good in people I mostly see only the bad and keep most of the good out of the equation. Icki sees you and notes that you'll be a valuable asset, good helper, and he also sees that you also can be a good friend to those you finally trust if you ever will trust him enough. This is where he and I constantly argue and I'm only using you as an example not for any particular reason."

Taking a drag from his smoke he continued." I see you're hot-headed, trigger happy, make a lot of noise, and get involved in things you shouldn't whether by accident or on purpose. I also see your lack of trust in people and I see that potentially as an issue later down the road if you don't shake that shit off and fast."

That said he stopped in front of a wall before looking at the janitor's closet next to it before opening the door and moving a beg of powder cement before revealing a panel. Tinkering with the panel he grinned as the wall next to the closet opened up revealing a stairway." He despises me for that and I despise him for what he sees outside of that we're the perfect partners."

Bex Pierce listened quietly. Hell, she didn't even argue. "Yeah.." She muttered, walking over to him as he popped out the panel. "I have my faults. But I'm alive because of 'em." She murmured. "Barely, but I am. Can't get through life without a few scars, eh..?" She chuckled airily.

"My lack of faith is derived from the fact I haven't found someone I could trust yet. Eventually everyone back stabs me.. And I do mean everyone.." She murmured, watching as the closet opened. "Icki's about the closest thing I've come to trust in a long time.." She murmured. "I respect 'em at least. Ya ain't given me a reason to do the same to ya'rself."

He was about to start heading downstairs when he stopped at the last thing Bex said. He looked at her over his shoulder." That's because I don't want you to trust me I'm not the person who wants people to trust him. Icki trusts me but that's only because we've known each other for a very long time before I became what I am now."

That said he leaned against the wall for a moment taking out a syringe and stabbing it into his leg pushing the odd black liquid within inside of his body." But there is one thing I will tell you that you can definitely trust me on. Icki will not back stab you hell if it wasn't for all of his emotional scarring I'm pretty sure he'd actually be completely honest with you. Then again over five hundred years of life, betrayal, death, war, and of course the loss of his wife Ninian even though that was twenty years ago helped do that. He hasn't been able to move on from a lot of the things that happened in his lifetime. That is why he never says goodbye and which I've observed he just vanishes before you can tell him anything important."

That said Ilav began to lead the way taking another drag from his smoke." Hell he still doesn't even know that I'm his son."

" One thing you learn about Icki is this...if you need to ask him something immediately start off with that then start conversation. Look you don't know the full story of his trust issue if you really want to know ask him. There are somethings I can tell you about him but this specific one you'll need to get out of him yourself."

That said he grinned slightly when she asked why he wouldn't tell Icki what he just told her." Because...technically Ivan Indigo is dead I was killed helping my father without him even knowing it. The story they told him was that the war when it arrived on the home front it just happened to cut across my way and that was that. I'm the empty husk that was once Ivan most of everything that made me a person has been removed. Unfortunately that is why I am here with you."

That said he took a few more steps before stopping in front of an open door he stared at all the weapons within." This is the armory." That said he finished his cigarette before moving through the door." My body is dying Bex and that liquid is only prolonging the eventual collapse of the Azure core that keeps it running. Icki needs someone by his side and my time is coming to a dangerous end."

That said he grabbed the shotguns Icki wanted and handed them to Bex." You're going to deliver these to him but before you do." He handed Bex one of his pistols." I need you to kill me before the core begins its melt down and destroys my body and anything within the fifty miles radius of it."

Bex Pierce listened with every bit of attention that someone who would have studied for that exam would have. The fact that he was technically dead but not actually sounded familiar to her. But when his tone changed, she paid more attention, her mint hues becoming sharp.

"So I'm suppose to kill Icki's friend, is that it?" She asked, well. More like growled. She was not totally against just popping him one right then and there, but in the few hours they'd spent on the planet, she'd at least gotten to know him. That was a step, and then he drops this on her. "I'm suppose to go back to Icki, acting like nothin' happened except I got ya'r blood on my 'ands and tell him what? That it was some freak accident?" She growled. "There's gotta be some other way." She added. Not because she didn't want him to die, but because she didn't want Icki coming after her with vengeance.

"Now I see the family resemblance, ya'r both bastards."

" Icki knows very well that I was a failed attempt at the Organization V's Murokumo Project. I've told him quite a few times before that my Azure core was failing and that I would need another in the coming days I've told him this over a course of a year. Our entire production has fail to acquire even a halfway stable core the best we could do was find the stuff to postpone the inevitable outcome."

That said he stretched slightly before looking around the room at all the weapons." You tell him the truth you let him know how everything went down here and you give him my PDA as proof. You think I carry this thing around for no reason but for intel? This baby loves to record everything that goes on during a job and here the evidence is solid that I personally requested that you end me before my core blows. If you don't kill em that you'll have to somehow within a weeks time memorize everything about Murokumo units then either find an Azure core Murokumo class or a suitable replacement that won't burn out as swiftly as this one has."

He said rather calmly as if he had this planned from the very beginning." If not then leave and I'll simply stand here in this room until the core does meltdown and blow everything here up. Then again I have no clue what else might be on this world so if there's life outside of this city and they have nuclear tech or worse than well...this whole planet is fucked."

Bex Pierce walked around slowly, deciding not to face Ilav at that moment. She was furious. "Yeah, he might believe everythin' from that PDA but he'd never look at me the same, ya know that." She growled. "I'm the one who would 'ave ended ya'r sorry ass. And you two didn't come up to me about this when I first met ya? He should 'ave known I was some sort of tinkerer before now." She punched the wall hard.

"Give me hard numbers. How long do ya technically got? How long does that shit sustain ya?" She said rubbing the bridge of her nose. Calculations were already being drawn in her mind. She may not have looked it, but she was very technologically savvy.

The more curious part, she was actually trying to save him. "And put that gun down until I say 'and it over." She growled.

" I just used my last syringe that holds it off for about an additional two hours my core warned me it was getting close to critical mass an hour ago." He thinks for a moment before he begins to laugh." Two hours." That said he gave her a smile before slowly shaking his head.

" Quite frankly I'm shocked you didn't just blow my fucking head off like I asked." That said he thinks for a moment before looking at the weapons in the room again." Icki has already done his math...he most likely is already aware of the fact that I'm not walking off this planet anytime soon. I'm also shocked and amazed that you actually give a shit about what he'll actually think about you or even look at you. Icki is a tough cookie I'll just be another on the list of people he knew that has died."

That said he leaned against the wall as Bex did her calculations and god knows what else." Do you even know anything about the anatomy of Murokumos?"

"He began to laugh as he looked at his watch before slowly shaking his head." Actually now we have about an hour and forty minutes so time is running out. You do realize by the time I finish explain this they'll only be about an hour left and it takes Organization V ten weeks to construct a single core. It needs to be one hundred percent precise or it'll immediately meltdown."

That said he let out a sigh." I appreciate what you're trying to do for me but one person cannot make a core in under an hour."
