Costume/Equipment:
A blue and red skin tight outfit. It concists of blue spandex pants and long sleeved shirt, with a deep red strip across ther chest that circles down her body. A red head band keeps her hair out of her eyes. A red mask covers her face, the mask is very similar as Robin's.

Motto/Catch Phrase: "You've made a enemy of the earth beneath you and the air in your lungs."

Personality:
Aura is a... moody person. She thinks she has a bipolar disorder. One minute she's happy and skipping through flowers, the next she wants to incinerate your family. She tries to control her moods, but she finds it difficult. Then cries about it. Twenty minutes later she thinks nothing of it for the next week. Most of the time though, she is kind to others and is concidered 'bubbly.' On the outside she's telling you how nice she is to meet you, but inside she judging everything about you. She never stops moving. Her foot is always tapping, she's nodding her head, humming. Something. "Its probably ADHD" is what she says, then shrugs it off.
Aura is also easily distracted. She'll be listening to you talking about how your grandmother died, then she'll interupt you and ask what was for dinner when she ate breakfast twenty minutes ago.
She cannot stand small spaces, and thinks she is claustraphobic. When she is put in a small space, she flips. Flailing, punching, kicking, trying to escape or just make the place bigger.
She is also a lover of music. Her singing voice is beautiful, and she can by shy when singing for others. She plays many instruments, including electric guitar, drums, acustic guitar, flute, electric bass, and piano.
Aurora has a short fuse. Don't light it. Just don't.
She seems to act a lot younger the she actually is, and has a tendency to cry like a little kid when she get hurt or gets yelled at or something along those lines.

Likes:
+Swimming
+Running
+Rock music
+Pop Music
+Sweets
+"What I want, when I want it. Hmph."

Dislikes:
-Electricity
-Sharp things
-Getting hurt
-Loud things

Weaknesses:
-- Electricity. For some reason, Aura is weak to electricity. It makes it feel like her blood it turning into molten lead and her head is going to explode. A small static shock is amplified and hurts much more then it should.
-- Easily Tired. Aura has very little stamina when it comes to using her powers. Though she can run a mile in five minutes, trying to use her powers for that long make it feel like she hasn't slept in a week, and she has the tendency to pass out.
-- Not Very Pain Intolerant. Small wounds hurt Aura more then you think they would. If she were to be cut on her arm, she wouldn't be able to use that arm until it was healed. If she twisted her ankle then she wouldn't be able to walk.

Fears:
-Death. Aura has always been scared about dying. After watching her mother die infront of her took its toll. Nightmares plague her sleeping mind most nights.
-Small Spaces. Flips out when in a small space.
-Hieghts. She can jump from a three story window, but would never go sky diving.

Theme Song: Absolutely (The Story Of A Girl) By Nine Days: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RatJeKHQa5k
Lyrics:
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looked so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

Now how many days in a year
She woke up with hope
But she only found tears
And I can be so insincere
Making her promises never for real
As long as she stands there waiting
Wearing the holes in the soles of her shoes
Now how many days disappear
When you look in the mirror
So how do you choose

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

[Chorus:]
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looked so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

Now how many lovers would stay
Just to put up with this shit day after day
Now how did we wind up this way
Watching our mouths for the words that we say
As long as we stand here waiting
Wearing the clothes or the soles that we choose
Now how do we get there today
When we're walking too far for the price of our shoes

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
But you never seem to run out of things to say

[Chorus:]
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

[Guitar solo]

Well your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

[Chorus:]
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her

This is the story of a girl
Whose pretty face she hid from the world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looked so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles
When she smiles!

Powers:
^Manipulation of the Four Classical Elements - Aura can control the four classical elements of Air, Earth, Fire and Water, though she has many limitations and drawbacks when using them. I will explain them seperately for each element:

Water is Aura's favorable element. This is also the one that she has the most control over. Though, she cannot control water if there isnt any. She can't control the water in your body, like in your blood. Aura can, however, take water from other objects. If she sees a fire extinguisher, she can make it explode and give her a water source. She can make water freeze into ice, and can make the ice go where she wishes, but this requires the utmost concentration, and has only done this successfully twice.

Air is Aura's second favorite element. She uses air to concentrate in blasts to knock foes off balance and and into other things. It also helps her increase her jump hieght and running speed, but not by too much, because if she over works herself, she will pass out. When in desperate times, she can pull the air out of your lungs. She hates doing his because she doesn't like killing people, so she only holds until the person passes out. This is very hard for her to do, and she has to be completely focused, or she will fail and become vulnerable.

Earth is not her best element. She can pull rocks out of the ground and launch them at someone, but thats the most of it. Occasionally, when in a panic, she can open up a hole in the ground and swallow up her opponents. Though she cannot close the hole, for she thinks she would kill the person by accident.

Fire is the worst of them all. She can only use it when she is angry enough, and when she uses fire her eyes turn red and you can see the heat coming off of her in waves. She can ignite her hands when angry, but when infuriated, she can light her entire body. This only last for a minute, because it taps into her energy and knocks her out ever single time she does. She can launch fire balls from her hands when in her 'rage mode'. When only slightly angry, her body warms up and her hands turn a light shade of red, and if she touches anything alive she gives it third degree burns.

General Skills:
^Fast Runner- She was a champion at track at her old school.
^Extremly Flexable- She took up gymnastics at a young age, and has practiced ever since. Because of it, her upper strength has been increased, making her stronger then she looks.
^Martial Arts- Knows many forms of hand to hand combat
^Aura can speak many European languages.

*Arch Nemesis:
"All them baddies!"

Family:
All of Aura's family is dead, reasons of which are in her history.

History:
Aura was a normal kid… well for the first few years of her life. Her powers gradually came upon her, in different years of her life. Events triggered her powers, causing them to go into effect. It was only a year ago that she learned of the fourth element.

When Aura was five, she had gotten a new puppy for her birthday. They had taken him for a walk on the beach, when his collar came loose. He jumped into the ocean where the current was too strong for him, and he was swept out into the sea. Aura was screaming her head off, when a sudden geyser exploded, and the puppy landed in her father’s arms. Events such as this one had confirmed Aura’s parent’s suspicions of Aura not being a normal child. So they thought it would stop with water, but they were wrong.

Aura was always teased as a child. Grade school, middle school, high school. Doesn’t matter. She was bullied brutally for being different. The kids would chase her home, throwing water balloons as a joke, telling her just to throw them back. She couldn’t control her powers very well, so she was defenseless. One day, when she thought she would have a break from the bullies, she saw them round a corner. For some reason, she didn’t take the same route home. They chased her down multiple streets, until she came to an alley with a fence blocking the end. She was at a dead end. They cornered her, and she closed her eyes. Without even trying, she was launched into the air by a sudden small whirlwind around her, and landed on the other side of the fence with a grunt. She was amazed, and gazed through the fence at the shocked looks of the bullies. She ran home and told her parents. They were now puzzled even more than before. Maybe it would stop here? Nope.

The bullies never let up. Aura practiced with her power with every minute of spare time she had. No one was friends with her, so she had a good amount of spare time. Her water skills were increased by tenfold, though she was having trouble with her air powers. Sure it got her out of close calls, but that was all it was good for.

Her earth powers revealed themselves when she was around the age of ten. Once again, being chased home by bullies. Nothing new. The running was beginning to build up her stamina, and strengthening her legs. She could out run them about 9 out of 10 times, but sometimes you just have those days. She seemed so sluggish that day, the bullies easily caught up to her. Being cornered once more, the earth seemed to sense her fear and panic. A rumble was sent through the ground as a crack formed under the bullies feet. It split open to a six foot deep pit, and they all fell in. Aura, crying, informed her parents of her new powers. She didn’t know when it would stop. Her parents began to fight. They argued about what to do. It just made everything worse.

Her father traveled a lot for a living. Aura was very attached to her mother, her mother took the place of her father. One day, about a year ago, when her father was in Europe for business, Aura and her mother had gone for a walk around town. They were chatting happily, when sirens began to go off. Both were very confused, when a man walked out of the building they were standing next to. The building was the bank. Without a second look, the man pulled out a pistol and shot her mother in the head.

Something happened in Aura. Something… snapped. Broke. Crumbled. Not even thinking, she lunged at the man, and dragged him to the ground. All she could see was red, and her blood was literally boiling. She could hear faint screaming, for all she could really hear was the blood roaring in her ears. Before she knew it, the flesh on the man begin the melt, until he was a puddle of liquid. She crawled off of him, and flopped down on the ground as her eyes rolled back in her head.

There is still a large scorch mark in the concrete ground in front of the bank today.

She awoke, and hour later, in a hospital bed. She looked in a mirror, and had to blink a few time before registering the fact that her eyes were red. The doctor came into the room and told her that her mother was in fact dead, and her father was coming home.

Aura was devastated. Her mother was really all that she had. Her father was a mess. He took on drugs, which ended his life only half a year later from an over dose. Aura truly didn’t have anyone left. She was placed in an orphanage, where she still attended school. Every night she would cry and images of her mother’s lifeless body crumpling to the ground would replay. Nightmares. Every night. Her life became a living hell. She started cutting. No one knew. It may have only lasted for a few months, but it was still there. She stopped about three months afterwards. Though the scars are still there. A reminder of what happens when she gets low.

She heard of the Teen Titans. She wanted to help the world, to prevent what happened to her family from happening to others. She never wanted anyone to have to go through that pain.

Yawwwwnnnnn. Why do I do this again?” Aura asked herself. It was pretty late at night. She was lying on her back rather uncomfortably on the roof of a tall building. Rubbing her eyes, she gazed over the edge and down on the ground below. Squinting, she could see the park not too far away. It was a beautiful patch of green that brightened up the bleak, crime ridden city. She flipped onto her stomach, and did a ‘seal’ stretch, feeling her back crack sending a wave of relief up her spine. Sighing, she sat up and swung her legs over the side of the building. The cooling breath was a welcomed feeling, as is swayed her hair this way and that way. Letting out a deep breath from her mouth, she opened her eyes once more to watch the city. “Oh… This… Is… Soooo… BORING!” Aura exclaimed, throwing her hands up in the air. “Why can’t something interesting happen every once in a while!” She grumbled to herself, crossing her arms indicating she was very annoyed. Not two seconds afterwards, a loud, ear splitting bellow ripped open the silence that was cloaking the city.

Letting out a small squeal, Aura jumped up and back, landing on her butt. “Geez… I didn’t actually expect something to happen,” She smiled as she stood up and brushed off her spandex outfit. Many people would find it uncomfortable, but she had to wear leotards for gymnastics so this was a step up. It outlined her body shape, every curve and movement. Aura waited patiently for another sound, in hopes of following it. It wasn’t in any language she understood, and she spoke many. Another loud sound was sent through the city. “The park. Got it. Now… how to get there…” She pondered on her few options. Looking left, she saw that the next roof top was a few stories down. “Let’s hope this works…” Aura mumbled as she momentarily took a step back, than sprinted towards the edge. Moving her hands in a swirling motion, a little cushion of air formed directly underneath her, and she went into her tuck and roll position.

Aura landed with a grunt, and rolled a few feet. “It worked!” She exclaimed happily as she leapt to her feet, but a bit too soon. Her legs suddenly felt like lead, and she dropped onto her knees. “Damn… I’ve got to make sure I don’t over work myself…” She said in-between pants to regulate her breathing. After a few moments, she stood once more, and gazed across to the other roof. It was about the same level as the one she was currently on, maybe a few feet shorter. She took another running leap and landed this one a bit more gracefully, not have to tuck and roll.

A few building leaps later, she was located on the roof only across the street from the park. Looking over the edge, she realized just how tall this building was. She had underestimated. It was about ten stories high. “If I fail… I’m dead. Lets do it!” Aura spoke to herself, getting ready before she started to think how stupid of an idea this was. “Its not flying, its falling with style!” She yelled as she ran full force at the edge.

Just before reaching the side, Aura jumped, pushing off as hard as she can with her legs. Completing a front flip, she allowed her body to spiral like a football. You could see a… shell of sorts form around her. Her rate of decent was gradually lessened, until she was even with the ground. Her air bullet cocoon was flickering on and off. Aura stuck her hands out in front of her, her palms facing out. The mini-whirlwind slowed, until it just disappeared. Aura found herself, once again, in the tuck and roll position. She rolled quite a bit until she rammed into some trash cans with a loud clatter. Her spine straightened out, and she was lying flat on her back, the world spinning.

Letting out a loud groan, Aura sat up slowly, putting her hand on her head. “Ow… never again…” She muttered. As far as she could tell, her head wasn’t bleeding, so that was good. Rolling each of her shoulders, she stood up, and glanced around. Good thing no one noticed… Letting out a sigh of relief she stood up and looked at the park only across the street. I hope the beast that made that sound didn’t notice either… Crouching down, she creeped across the street. The bushes made for good camouflage… well it probably would have if she wasn’t wearing a bright blue and red spandex outfit. She just hoped that no one would be smart enough the see her. Poking her head out, she could see a man barely wearing anything, a girl with blonde hair, and two other guys, one of which who looked like he was twenty. Yet another girl spoke from where she was asleep on a bench. “What in the world is going on here…” She was completely dumb founded when some robots attacked them. Blinking, she pulled her head back into the bush, not noticing how much noise she made. Sitting in the bush, her legs were crossed, and she was deep in thought.

Aura was minding her own business, just watching them from her little bush, when a large, metal robot was flying right at her. With a yelp, she leapt out of the bush just as the robot flattened the shrubbery. Once again, Aura found herself rolling on the ground, uncontrollably. Well, that is, until she hit a tree. She made a soft, "Oof!" sound as her body hit the tree full on.

Aura found herself in the weirdest position ever. She wasn't really sure how she got into the position in the first place. Her upper back was on the ground, and her butt and legs were up in the air, against the tree. It look her a minute to realize what just happened. "HOW DOES THIS EVEN HAPPEN?!" She yelled at herself, and squirmed backwards, so that she was lying flat on her back on the ground. Standing back up, grumbling, she shook her head to get dirt out of her hair. "That wasn't very nice!" She yelled, aiming it at the man beast thing, who had just headbutted the blonde chick. The headbutt should have at least given her a concussion, but she was perfectly fine. Now I know that there is something different about her... Now it seemed like blondie was trying to communicate, but Aura couldn't understand what she was saying. She stood there, blinking, wondering what the hell she should do.

(sorry its kind of short!)

White felt as though his head was hitting a something very strong as it impacted the bird thing, he had not thought the creature would be so tough. Fora a second he swayed after he sent the creature flying, his head was spinning and dazed. Though he quickly recovered after shaking his head to clear it. As the realization finally hit him that he had finally succeeded in hitting the creature he felt an intense elation. After such a long time spent without any headway towards the fight, landing a strike made him much less irritated and also brought about a feeling of excitement over continuing the fight. He also heard strange intricate noises coming the two-walker now beside him, who he assumed was showing some sort of thanks to White for rescuing him.

White's attention was then draw for a second yet more intricate noises aimed at him, however this time they were much more higher pitched and louder. He quickly turned his head to see a very strange and flamboyant looking two-walker. He was confused by the sight, unable to figure out why the two-walker would be covered in such bright colors. He quickly gave up on the notion as he heard something very loud, but this time very surprising.

"DO NOT WANT FIGHT! NOT CONTINUE! NO HURT! HELP TO YOU I GIVE!"

White snapped his head, drawn by the sound of actual language, even if it was in a very strange dialect and strangely high pitched. When he saw the golden eyes staring back at him from behind the statement he simply did not understand. No anger came from confusion of the situation. He was instead completely dumbfounded, his mind trying to process why the golden eyed creature was now speaking. As he stared, he stood there, only blinking a few times as his mind tried to process the situation.

Yet another drone had been shaken apart. Rénard turned to see the others trying to calm down the ape thing, smirking as he saw it was working. Humans sure were resilient and innovative. There were a few more drones left, and one was walking right towards a girl, who was just standing there.
There was never a better moment, as he stuck two Didges to his back, and ran her way. He planted the horn into the ground, then jumped, flipping over it. In the air, he put his mouth to the mouthpiece, and blew. The resulting blare sent him right towards the robot, his feet connecting to it's head. He was on the ground with it though, and as it got up, he rolled onto his stomach. Before he could get up, a blow struck him right in the back. He fell right onto the ground again, knocking the wind out of him. He struggled again, and got a kick to the chest. He rolled onto his back, but instead of anything else, he felt the grip of cold steel grab onto his arm, and drag him away. He was still dazed, and saw lights flash around while his body started to run diagnostics. It didn't feel good, that was for sure.
"It can't end before it begins rust-bucket." His words traveled weakly through his mouth, but the clanker heard him. It turned, and watched as his "trophy" rolled, kicked the hand, and rolled away, getting up slowly. He turned to the girl whom he had saved. Maybe she was a civilian, then at least his work would be good for the public. He was kind of hoping she wasn't though, because he could really use the help.
"Hey lass, mind givin' me a hand here?"

(MaxStokes PMed me that he'd be away on vacation of a few days so I will be controlling his character until he returns.)

The brutish boy had stopped, much to Melanie's relief. She could feel her energy draining as she stood there and knew that if the fight didn't end soon she'd be in serious trouble. He cocked his head slightly to the side, looking confused, but at least he wasn't fuming. He blinked once then shouted something, translated to:

"ME WHITE! YOU NAME?"

Melanie tried to say her name in his tongue but it came out as, "MELON" as it seemed the nonunciation of her name didn't work with his language. That was okay though, she could stand being Melon instead of Melanie. Shrugging it off she now braced herself, prepared to deliever the bad news.

"WHITE MUST GO." she explained, trying not cause offense. White's gaze hardened.

"WHITE KING OF METAL FOREST AND TWO LEGS." he said firmly, but Melanie gently shook her head.

"TWO LEGS NO LIKE; SCARED. TWO LEGS HURT WHITE IF WHITE STAY."

White looked stunned, then appeared to be thinking hard.

"WHITE NO HAVE LAND HIS OWN. IF WHITE NO LIVE HERE, WHERE WHITE GO?"

Melanie was caught off guard by this. It made sense now; he was a nomad looking for his own territory. But it couldn't be here. She gave a sympathetic shrug.

"MELON NO KNOW WHERE WHITE GO. BUT WHITE NO STAY HERE." she said, gesturing to the city around her. "TWO LEGS FEAR AND HURT WHITE. DANGER. WHITE NEED PLACE FAR FROM TWO LEGS HERE."

White seemed about to fight her about it for a moment but then thought better of it, realizing the truth of her words. It probably helped that she was speaking his language. Finally he gave a sigh of resignation.

"WHITE NO LIVE HERE. MELON LIVE HERE?"

Melanie held back a similar sigh of relief, glad the fight was over.

"NO, MELON NO LIVE HERE. TWO LEGS NO LIKE MELON MUCH. MELON LIVE CLOSE. MELON HELP TWO LEGS IN TROUBLE."

White now seemed thoughtful. "WHITE HELP? WHITE LIKE TWO-LEG RED FOOD." he exclaimed, earnestly holding up a chuck of meat he'd take from the resturant, earning a small smile from Melanie. Maybe he could help...

She pointed to the droids, probably numbering to 20 (though it was more like 17 since she herself had take out two of them and there were various peices scattered onto the road). "THEY BAD. WANT HURT WHITE, WANT HURT TWO LEGS. SMASH HELP."

White gave a grin, turned to the three who were closest and obliged, charging them with a gutteral yell. Melanie switched speakers again and turned to face Livewire. "There's been a change of plans. That guy, White by name, is going to look for another territory after he helps us destroy these freaky robots who were sent by somebody to capture White and kill anyone in the way." Melanie said directly, no sugar-coating in her explaination just straight to the point. She didn't see any reason to avoid it anyways. "So now, I guess, our enemy are these guys."

Melanie was just about to surge foreward to fight the droids when she took a moment to glance around. Having a direct, computer mindset she had a tendency to focus on one task and be unaware of everything else. Stopping and smelling the roses was very hard, but in this case it was forturnate that she did so because the sight she was greeted with... well, it was a strange one.

First off there was a girl with green streaked hair who was weilding a quarter with great ferocity, robot parts scattered near her as she threatened the approaching bots. The next one she noticed was a young man, also facing a small group of robots, with what seemed to be his own team of tech. WHO THINKS THEY CAN BEST ME? YE ARTIFICIAL DOGS!" he yelled, a perfect imitation of a pirate, but was hit by one such bot and knocked to the side before destroying it to. Lastly she noticed the girl who he walked up to, "Hey lass, mind givin' me a hand here?" he said politely.

Melanie was genuinly suprised by all of this. She had thought she'd have to fight them all herself, but had never expected to receive help. Gratitude probably would have brought tears to her eyes if she had been a human with working tear ducts. Quickly deciding she would thank then later, she instead focused on the two robots who were approaching her. A small smirk graced her face as she ran towards then, thinking 'Well, I do need to recharge my battery...'

Aura was deep in thought. She has the habit of just shutting out the world for a few minutes, in an attempt to recollect what was going on. Her eyes seemed to be glazed over as her brain worked a mile a minute, when something was coming at her. Just as she snapped out of her thinking mode, someone had stopped the machine and was tussling with it on the ground. Her 'savoir' had just escaped it, and asked, "Hey lass, mind givin' me a hand here?"

Aura blinked as her golden gaze swept over the robot. It had recovered quick enough, and was beginning to strike. It seemed she was only going to take a step forwards when she was launched a full ten feet, and was in front of the boy. As she was in the air, a perfect upper cut had planted itself on the robot. A loud clang resounded and Aura could feel her teeth chattering for a moment. The machine was stunned, and was sent reeling. Aura, blinked a few seconds, before yelling, "OW?!" and shaking her hand up and down as her knuckles turned red. Ok, brute force won't get you out of this one. Just if metal was softer... hmm... Its a good idea but I have to be cautious. If I over exert myself... Aura shuddered slightly. She hated the feeling of her eyes rolling back in her head, then she wakes up in some strange place. Aura clenched her fists and jaw at the same time, eyes squeezed shut. Get angry... anything... a gun shot sounded in her head as her eyes snapped open again, and her irises are a dark, bloody red. Opening her hands, a flame ignited in her palm, and spread until it consumed her entire upper arm.

A droid made the mistake of charging her. Lifting her fist, it connected with it's middle, and the metal seemed to bend with her fist. She pushed forward until her fist went through the robot. It sparked and collapsed. Aura was breathing heavy already though her hands remained ignited. She looked over at the male from before, and you could see the flames flickering in her eyes. "Don't call me lass." She turned and continued to kick so robo-ass.

The girl had just threw her hand right through the robots abdomen, that was hot. Not only because her arm was on fire, but because such mystical and martial prowess was, well. He was glad that he could get a good look at her when she turned to him.
"Don't call me lass."
She turned ahead, a drone in her path. He was not going to be deterred so easily however. He sealed a didge across his back, and hooked the other two inside the mouthpieces with his fingers. Running towards her, he threw them in front of him, one after the other, planting them into the ground. Releasing the third, Rénard lifted himself onto the first. As his foot left it, the horn followed him, and stuck to his back. He leaped off of the second, and in mid-jump, he grabbed a didge off of his back, flipped, and slammed the drone right on its head. It crumpled, sparks flying from its now misshapen head.
Getting up, he spun on his left heel, about a half-foot away from that girl who probably could have taken care of herself. As another Drone approached them, he manipulated a didge right through a drones chest with a simple flick of the hand. He twisted his wrist, and the the didge began to spin, tearing up the internal wiring. As he dropped his hand, the horn flew back to the others, securely sticking itself onto him. His eyes were trained on her the entire time though, mesmerized by her abilities.
"Well then miss, what am I supposed to call you then?"

Melanie locked onto her target, running toward the wretched humaniod machine at speeds a professial runner would have envied. Lunging, she grabbed hold of his head and dug her fingers in through the metal and into the circits, absorbing the electricity and feeling bit by bit stronger. Normally she would have grabbed him and plugged herself into him (usually by plunging her hand into his head or where the master chip was), thus absorbing the power and all data he contained. But that took time and it would reviel to the others in this vicinity what she was; something she wanted to avoid at all costs.

So instead she plucked the chip out with her fingers and stashing it in a small compartment disceretly, planning on reviewing it later. Then she yanked her hand from the now shutdown bot's forehead and let him collapse. His companion attempted to do a roundhouse kick but Melanie stopped him with her hand, flipping the poor, misguided machine into the pavement. Then she dug her hand through the metal that made up the back of his head and did the same thing.

Meanwhile White was running around, leaping from bot to bot, crushing them with his bare fists or smashing them against the concrete sidewalks. He'd already taken out two and was on his third, grabbing it by the arm and twisting the metal until the arm came off. Using the arm as a club he smashed the remained of the robot's metal body until the screws fell out. Then suddenly there was a sharp twing of pain in his calf and he looked down to he a dart with brightly colored feathers on one end. A robot a few meters away was pointing directly at his calf and a small whisp of smoke rose from it's finger.

White pondered this for an instant, wondering what such a small humming bird could do to him, not feeling even the slightest bit woozy. The robot seemed to realize this for it pointed with it's other finger at his chest. It never go the chance to fire though because White plucked the dart from his leg and threw it with amazing accuracy on could only get from hunting at the robot. The dart jammed up the bot's finger and stopped the second projectile from flying, giving the robot a moment's pause. In that moment White managed to charge him and headbutt him hard enough it sent him flying into a tree where broke into four seperate peices. A new personal record.

Melanie had just polished off her forth bot and noticed that her opponents were looking a little scarce, only one or two more of them lingering at the scene. They must not ahve been programed well because, though it was clear which side was winning, they still hadn't fled. Either they had a faulty processor... or they were disposable. This idea cause a rush of anger to be directed towards the one they all refered to in their memory files as 'Leader'. Yes they were machines, but reguardless of what they were, life or artifical life, they should not be used and then tossed away like trash.

Speaking of the importance of life, Melanie saw out of the corner of her eye the girl who'd the pirate adressed say something and then collapse against him. Hearing the sounds of metal on metal (probably the girl with the quarter) as well as the sounds of White and Livewire fighting, Melanie figured she could afford to check on the girl and make sure she was okay. Quite concerned now, she hurried over to see the girl limp in the pirate's arms.

"What happened? Was she injured?" Gently she pressed two fingers against the side of the girl's neck. Her sensors indicated that she was alive, only unconscience. Melanie breathed a soft sigh of relief. "She's alive but she's fainted. Probably from exhaustion." she said, then added under her breath, "Thank goodness..." Glancing to the pirate man she remembered her manners. "Oh, by the way, I'm Melanie."

She was somewhat surprised, as Rachel didn't actually expect the kid to apologize so quickly. Crossing her arms as she watched him dismantle one of the droids in front of them, followed with a challenge. But before she could respond, he had seemed to run off to who knows where.

After hearing some girl behind her ask herself how something ever happened, albeit in a yelling manner, Rachel turned around, her eyes settling on a strange girl, not much younger than herself, in a weird position against a tree, however that didn't last long.

She noticed that the same boy that tried to kiss her was next to that other girl, the two fighting off another set of drones. There was a moment where a couple of the drones had the upper hand against the duo, before they were overtaken by the two teens.

Turning around to the others, Rachel noticed that the fighting between the blonde girl and that... man-ape had ceased, and she had let out a slight smile as those two were communicating, even though their words were enough to give R'hul a mental aneurysm.

There were more drones to pass around for those two, until she noticed that self-righteous guy that spoke to her before having some stranger trying to kiss her. Rachel made a quick glance at their surroundings, counting roughly 15 drones, not counting the couple that the blonde girl had just taken down herself.

Before long, the number of drones quickly dwindled between the blonde girl and the man-ape, and Rachel had simply flapped her arms, as if having nothing to do. Looking down at her quarter, she thought to herself, and to R'hul. Heads, help them clean up the park. Tails, leave the scene.

R'hul didn't object with his usual smartass remarks about the suggestion, as he was content for helping those people, even though they had only taken down one drone with a spoon. Rachel flipped the quarter into the air, catching it with her empty hand, the coin landing with tails facing up.

Tails it is, she stated mentally, before heading out into the darkness and out of the park. Whoever they were, they didn't seem to need her help, as they had a quite a few interesting individuals among them. Though it was likely that Rachel would see them again, she didn't want to, preferring to work alone with R'hul.

"What happened? Was she injured?" Hell if he knew, he had just caught her, and was struggling to keep her up. He threw her
arm over his shoulder, and picked up her legs in his free arm. The three didges floated behind him to form a low triangular pattern. "She's alive but she's fainted. Probably from exhaustion,Oh, by the way, I'm Melanie."

"Thanks Miss Melanie, I'm a bit tired, but I should be able to protect the both of us fer now. If I was physically able, i'd return yer manners, but for now, I've got me hands full." He shuffled Aura tighter into his grip, hoping she wouldn't fall out of his arms. "Not that I be complainin' or anything. The name's Pulse, since I am a tried and true Super, Hero." He paused between the two words for an emphasizing effect, hopefully not misleading her for a short while to believe that he was a bad guy.

"There's been a change of plans. That guy, White by name, is going to look for another territory after he helps us destroy these freaky robots who were sent by somebody to capture White and kill anyone in the way." That edgy guy was busy blowing up drones with what appeared to be electricity, though it could probably be Plasma, or liquid fun. He was going to put his bets on Liquid Fun, the best Rum in the Galaxy.

"So his name is White then, pleasure to meet yo-" He stopped mid sentence as he watched White headbutt a drone. This day just got better and better. He spoke up a bit, trying to get that edgy fellows attention. "Let's reconsider this, how about we keep his Majesty and induct him into our crew."

As a drone approached him, the three didgeridoos sprung back, and locked it in place. As Rénard turned around to find it struggling to escape. He looked it straight in the Photo-receptors, watching the lights flash, vibrate, then display numbers counting down. "Best be backin up Miss, no idea how awesome this will be, oh," He grinned as he turned his head towards her. "It would be in very good interest to cover your ears." The three didges linked together, end to end, to create one very long Didgeridoo. He took a small breath. No need to strain himself. As the didgeridoo touched his mouth, he began his mantra of expelling air whilst breathing in, and as the few seconds it took him went on, it Progressively got louder in a steep climb. The final result was a fluxuation of pitch, no tone, just pitch. In a crescendo, it climbed to a near ear-piercing screech, then dropped to a Very low blare. The Drone seemingly vibrated itself apart, only leaving the bomb a few feet away. Pulse just managed to cover it with this now titan Didgeridoo, and watched as the blast was completely expelled out of the mouth piece.

"Now that," He announced calmly "Is going to taste terrible."

"Thanks Miss Melanie, I'm a bit tired, but I should be able to protect the both of us fer now. If I was physically able, I'd return yer manners, but for now, I've got me hands full. Not that I be complainin' or anything. The name's Pulse, since I am a tried and true Super, Hero." Pulse said, shifting the girl in his arms so that she wouldn't fall from his hands. His self-assigned title of 'super-hero' drew a small smile on Melanie's lips. Yeah, they were all kind of acting like super-heroes weren't they? Maybe after this fight was over that's what they could be... super-heroes.

For the moment though she gave a small laugh and tipped her head slightly in his direction. "That's alright, I understand. It's nice to fight beside you Pulse. If you think you can protect her-" Melanie gestured at the girl who was laying limp in Pulse's arms, "Then I'll leave her to you, but if you need help-"

Melanie needn't waste her breath as a couple of the droids approached Pulse and he noticed them and a wide grin spread over his face. "Best be backin up Miss, no idea how awesome this will be, oh, it would be in very good interest to cover your ears." He took a small breath in after his weapons (at least, that's what Melanie assumed they were) connected to eachother, forming a large instrament which he breathed into. It took but a few moments but the sound quickly reached an almost unearthly volume her sensors couldn't even pick up on. Were she human she would have heard it, but because she was not she could only feel the powerful virbrations. The robot almost seemed to vibrate itself apart, only leaving the bomb a few feet away. Pulse just managed to cover it with this now titan Didgeridoo, and watched as the blast was completely expelled out of the mouth piece.

"Now that," He announced with a slight smirk, "Is going to taste terrible." Melanie laughed at this. Pulse who have no problem handling himself and protecting the girl. White seemed to be enjoying himself. Sprouse, who'd seen White, had appearently started a competition with the latter, for it seemed every time White smashed a drone, Livewire would too. Well, Melanie had never thought that having a little fun on the battle field was a bad thing. The other thing she noticed which she hadn't picked up on were two unfamiliar heat signatures; one male one female, both leaving the area and going in opposite directions. She glanced around to identify them but they were both already hidden in the shadows which hindered her vision since White had managed to damage her night vision.

Speaking on damage, Melanie scanned the area. Two bots were left- okay, scratch that, one (White had accidently taken one out with a flying tree branch) but one would be enough. Leaping towards him he didn't even have enough time to duck before she'd drained his power and put it into her own reserves which she was tapping into now, as well as removing his microchip and storing it along with the two or three others. Now the park was bare besides the group of them and various robotic parts scattered everywhere. She'd likely come by and pick up some of the remaining pieces later when there were less... well, people.

Now that the robots had been destroyed and the fighting had ceased she looked between her companions. They'd done very well, fighting along side herself. Melanie knew she would have been unable to take on the droids in her condition without them. So she owed them her life at the least. Besides, Pulse had just crashed into earth (so it seemed) and he was holding a girl who'd blacked out durning the fight. White had no home and Melanie was apperently the only one who would understand him. Livewire, well, he'd been the first of the group to stand beside her... As her golden gaze slid from one person to the next she kept thinking out the favor she owed them all and oddly enough, found herself speaking.

"Um... Thanks you guys... I... I guess I couldn't really have won this without you." Melanie said, giving a small, sheepish grin. If she could blush, she'd be blushing hard core. "I really can't thank you enough. But-" Melanie hesitated, then spoke quickly, almost not being able to process her own words, "But would you like to help me? Fight crime, I mean. Like, as a group maybe...?" Part of Melanie wanted to run away and hide in the tower, the other part wanted them to be waiting there. Speaking to White she said, "WHITE NEED HOME? WHITE COME LIVE WITH MELON. MELON HAVE GOOD HOME. MELON SHARE AND WHITE HELP TWO LEGS. LOTS MORE RED FOOD." then turned to the others. "I-I have a nice little place, big enough to fit all of us. She could probably use medical care," Melanie gestured to the girl in Pulse's arms, "and everyone needs a place to call home, right? Come with me, and... we could be a Team!"

"Um... Thanks you guys... I... I guess I couldn't really have won this without you. I really can't thank you enough. But-but would you like to help me? Fight crime, I mean. Like, as a group maybe...?"
That sounded like a prime idea. Fight crime, get a group of comrades, and then later, take control of the world, then ship it to father for status. Sounded like a good plan, as long as he didn't tell anybody else about it. He doubted that anybody would be able to identify him, so he was safe for the most part.

"I-I have a nice little place, big enough to fit all of us."
That was good, it would mean that they would have an HQ for fighting crime, or hang out, or to not half to carry sleeping girls.
Actually, the pain was worth it, even if she was wearing a mask. The sound of grunting that she made while she talked to White, as it had yelled many a time, was so rugged and barbaric. It in itself was a beautiful language. Not as much could be said about english though, too loose, and the grammar seemed horrid.

Rénard swayed his gaze over to that edgy guy, for he had never caught his name. It would be a good idea to make a conversation with him as he was blushing, to help the guy out.
"Never caught yer name lad, mine's Pulse."

As White turned his head rapidly, looking for more of the metal creatures to crush he heard the very strange golden eyed two-walker named Melon called out to him again. It was still rough around the edges, but the dialect that she had been spouting was easy enough for him to understand. He easily caught that she was offering for him to come live with her, which was to White a strange consideration. However, the promise of more of the hearty meat bugs that inhabited this area easily swayed him to nod his rapidly in conformation.

"White will live with you and help his subjects." He confirmed back to her after she had finished making more delicate noises to the other strange two-walkers around her. He had concluded that this must be the two-walkers way of communication, though he still hadn't a clue as to how to interpreted the frilly speak.

White looked over the two walkers that were standing around Melon. They were the first two-walker that had shown up, the sickly looking second one who had, and a very colorful one that seemed to be passed out and was being carried by the sickly looking one. He still had no idea why they were continuing to stand around. Though he didn't have much time to consider this, as his stomach suddenly let out a loud and deep growl, telling him it was time to eat.

"Melon and White go now?" He asked Melon. "Find some meat-worms too?"

Melanie felt a small smile fell crookedly across her lips.

What had she gotten herself into this time? Looking between the group it struck her that they would all make a rather strange team. A musical pirate, a frost troll, Livewire, a girl who'd passed out mid-battle (if she decided to stay and be a part of the group), and a girl super computer. And now they were going to try and fight crime together? It almost sounded like a bad joke! Or... like the New Teen Titans...

Struck by this thought she was shocked by the comparison. Could this rag-tag, nice-to-meet'cha group of strangers really be as great as the famous crime-fighting heroes?

'Well, even they had to start somewhere,' Melanie thought, her small smile growing until it because a happy grin. Besides, it was too late to go back on her offer (since they all seemed to agree). Clapping her hands together Melanie turned to face them. "Well, I guess if everything's settled," she proclaimed, gesturing that they come along, "then follow me."

~TIME SKIP~

It was late at night when the young Titans had arrived at what would be their new home.

Melanie had given them each their own room (except White who'd insisted on sleeping outside and not entering the "metal tree cave" as he'd called it). She, being damaged and low on battery, gave up trying to convince him otherwise and instead of giving him a room indoors told him that he could claim the garage as his "cave" and showed him the button that opened and closed the garage door. Additionally, she gave him a collar, telling him it was a gift for a king like himself that would let him understand his two-legged subjects. Gladly he accepted, and Melanie got to stop busting her voice box with his language.

The girl who'd passed out hadn't awoken yet and Melanie had been worried, putting her in a vacant room and checking her vitals to make sure she was only unconcience and not in a coma or anything (thankfully, she was still okay). Pulse and Livewire got seperate rooms and she told them they were free to look around the tower, but if a door was locked respectfully let it remain locked as she had installed defense systems for the tower and their interworking were in there. They agreed and she bid them goodnight before heading to her own room.

The moment the door shut her systems took over. Her chip was removed from Mel's damaged, robotic body and placed into the mainframe. Immedeately she projected herself and began to work, having Mel repaired and activating the security systems. But while she checked to make sure everything was running fine she stumbled across something... troubling.

It was some security footage.

There was a dark figure in it, wearing a mask, speaking to himself. "It matters not anymore whether you are bright now, your darkness was revealed to me once. I will purge it. I will purge this corrupt city of both its law-keepers and law-breakers, only the innocent will survive. After that, they will have to grow strong." He reatched up and removed his mask, but his back was to the camera and she could not see his face. "Did you hear me?" He asked, addressing the camera that had recorded this eery encounter. "This is the last time I will visit your little tower as a neutral bystander. Now, I'm coming for you, little Titan. As a symbol of the City's corruption and dependence on useless heroes, you will be first." Then the stranger turned, the mask on and again hiding his face, which he lowered to stare into the camera's lense. "Prepare yourself, little Titan. My name is Krótos. Remember it. For what little time you have left will be haunted by it." With that his hand came up and the video turned to static. Melanie felt an unusual shiver of fear run down her spine as she stared at the screen for a moment before turning it off.

Krótos. The made a note and began a new file, one she made a reminder to revisit. It wasn't often she got chills. But then again, it wasn't often she got a death threat from an unwelcome guest, either. But she wasn't alone anymore, and she wasn't the only Titan now either (if that's what they were to be called). As she went into hibernate mode her last thought was, for the first time in a long time, the happy thought of 'I'm not the only one anymore...'

Krótos's eyes snapped open. He hadn't set his alarm, but from the sound of things outside it was still early in the morning. Krótos got up and stretched. "Today's the day." He said to himself. After stretching, Krótos reviewed his plans while he made breakfast. It was simple really. After Justice Ramirez adjourned court, for which he was signed up to be the bailiff, Krótos would knock him out, hold him hostage in the very room he served his perverted justice, and hold him for ransom along with the rest of the building. During the week, before his scheme was scheduled to take place, Krótos had visited the courthouse, placing small, powerful charges all along the main thoroughfare underneath the building. Each was wirelessly hooked up to a switch he had assembled using a walkie talkie and some spare parts. He'd bought all of his supplies from separate stores under separate names all with cash. It would eliminate any trace of him being there whatsoever. After the Judge was tied to his chair, Krótos would broadcast the hostage situation live, hoping to garner the attention of the Titan who lived in the old tower. It had been relatively quiet since he'd last visited. There appeared to be nothing out of the ordinary happening. Good. In a one vs. one situation, Krótos was more than confident in his abilities. Finally, he'd arranged with a local news anchor that if he turned the station's attention to channel 51 at exactly 3:15 in the afternoon, he would have the scoop of a lifetime. Krótos knew there would be some risk, the Judge's personal guards were stationed all over that place, they would be more than willing to cooperate with the city's weak police should their boss's life be in danger, still they were just regular people after all. Krótos could handle them easily. Krótos nodded to himself, his plan was perfect. No loopholes, no real threats. After he was done killing the Judge, he would dispatch the Titan. It would be simple, easy really. Once the city had seen who he was and what he was capable of, they would be forced to muster up and become strong. If not, he would destroy the whole thing. He would just burn the place to the ground, fence them all in, and watch Jump City eat itself alive. Krótos nodded with grim satisfaction.

After he had triple checked all of his equipment, Krótos suited up. He pulled on his plated jumpsuit and his utility belt. Next he laced up his shoes and tied them tight. He placed every ounce of equipment he might need at a moment's notice on his belt and the rest went into an unmarked messenger bag. He made sure he had his detonator, all his weapons, some spares just in case, and a few new toys. A titanium wire net of his own design, some smoke bombs, duct tape, some rope, a few freezing bombs, and some new knives that he could add to his scythe for added efficiency. The wire was rated against a semi in full reverse. It held for three hours before breaking. Krótos figured it would be strong enough to contain the thrashing of a fully grown Bull African Elephant for just as long. The freezing bomb's first prototype had flash frozen a small pond of about twenty gallons of water in exactly .6533 of a second and didn't thaw until the next day. Unfortunately, Krótos only had three, the first prototype had been sacrificed for science though Krótos knew it would work flawlessly. Krótos smiled, still, it had been better to check anyway. After checking for the fourth time, Krótos pulled on his mask and his tear away bailiff suit. At that, Krótos left his apartment and locked the door behind him, not knowing that today would change his life forever.

After travelling unmolested to the courthouse, despite his mask, Krótos sat through the proceeds in complete and utter boredom. His only use was to escort the Justice to his next hearing as well as escort the defendant to and from the vehicle he arrived in. Krótos sighed, he knew anyway that the filth being prosecuted would get off anyway, the judge had been bribed by the thug's peers, he'd get off with a warning and some community service, hardly a just punishment for armed robbery and three counts of manslaughter. Finally, after it was done, the defendant got away, as Krótos had predicted. Krótos fought every urge in his body to not kill the scum as he escorted him back to the safety of his armored transport. Krótos smiled under his mask as he shoved the rat into his vehicle, waving as he drove away. Krótos had bigger fish to fry.

As soon as Krótos got back to the courtroom, he walked straight up to the judge, planning on doing something... fun. Luckily, there were no pulsations of footfalls within the room, Krótos would get away with this scott free. The judge made some conversation at him, which Krótos deftly ignored, stepping straight up to the heinous fiend and smashing his fist into his face as hard as he could, knocking him to the ground and sending him flying a good three feet. "What the hell?" The man exclaimed through a broken nose and a fat lip, Krótos heard the pitter patter of blood spraying out of his mouth as he spoke. "Unless you didn't know, you piece of shit, I'm a Justice of the Peace, assaulting me is like asking to go to jail!" The corpulent fungus proclaimed. "Luckily for me," Krótos said, his voice heavy with dark undertones. "I'm not here for a Justice of the Peace. I'm here for garbage. After all, the city's refuse needs to be managed." With that, Krótos ripped off his disguise and replaced it with his regular black trench coat. "I am Krótos, and I'm here to cause a real... bang." Krótos said, reaching into his bag and pulling out his duct tape. After the Judge had been properly detained in his own throne of lies, Krótos got to work. He barred all the doors, pulled the fire alarm, and set up his camera and transmitter. After a few moments of tense waiting, it was finally 3:15 in the afternoon. "Showtime" Krótos said, tilting his head slightly to the left and pulling out both his detonator and his newest kukiri. It was long, sharp, and as black as obsidian.

~~~


At exactly 3:17 pm, the news flashed onto everyone's televisions, even when some of them weren't on. This type of thing was done only in emergencies, and well... now was the time to use it. The local news's theme played and the regular anchor panned into view. "Hello I'm Clark Adams, we interrupted your regularly scheduled programming to bring you this breaking news. We go now to Larry Jenkins in the field, live at the Jump City Courthouse where a hostage situation is taking place. Larry."

"Thank you Clark. What started today, like any other day at the courthouse, was the sound of local Judge Ramirez banging his gavel in support of the crime conversion program. What some might call violent criminals, Ramirez calls tender souls. Ramirez has always been an advocate of innocence, saying that if you don't fix the situation that creates these criminals, you're not actually fixing the problem. Ramirez's leniency has been the topic of local debate for years due to it's patchy results and otherwise unsettling verdicts. It appears one such criminal, or hero as he calls himself, has decided to, as he describes it, 'punish the corrupt.' He is broadcasting live material of what is going on inside the heavily barricaded courtroom, and before we switch over to it, I must warn you, the content is shocking."

At that, the view switches to a dark courthouse. The lights are all turned off, the only real sources of light are the semi-drawn shades, creating a feeling of darkness and general eeriness. Suddenly there is a sound of grunting, followed by a heavy thud, and finally, a voice, clear as a bell. "Ahh... It appears I'm live. Welcome, Jump City, to my courtroom. As you can see, court is now in session." The lights flick on and camera is focused on a heavily beaten Judge Ramirez. "I see you've found our defendant today." The same voice says, its owner unseen by the camera which bobs slightly, as if it's being held. "Allow me to introduce myself. I am Krótos." With that, the camera appears to be set down and Krótos steps into the picture. "Hello Jump City, so glad you could join me." Krótos says slyly. "We are here today for the case of the people vs. Judge Ramirez. How does the defendant plead?" Krótos asks, turning to the judge, sitting in his own chair, but very clearly tied up, and gagged with duct tape. He grunts a few times before Krótos interrupts him. "Guilty? A wise decision. Then let us review the evidence." At that, Krótos strolls nonchalantly over to his bag, reaches inside and pulls out a multitude of papers which he throws into the air, allowing them to settle where they may. "I have here." Krótos states, regally walking about the room. "A river of pleas, requests, and general approvals of my action against you. That is, accounts of your cruelty, corruption, and general filth. This choir of innocent voices wishes for me to destroy you Mister Ramirez, how does that make you feel." Again, Ramirez makes to shout, but his cries are muffled by the gag. "ENOUGH!" Krótos roars at the man in an entirely different tone of voice, one filled with anger. He deftly jumps all the way up to the Judge's podium before back handing the slime across his face, silencing him immediately. "Shush now, little one, the adults are talking. These papers are all filled with eyewitness accounts of you accepting bribes, both of currency and the flesh. Accounts of you overriding a jury's findings due to inconclusiveness are also rampant. Finally, there are even accounts of abuse and assault against minors who come to you pleading for their parents. You, my dear Piece of trash, are the lowest scum in this city and it will be my personal honor to watch the life leave your eyes." Once more Krótos smashes his fist into the face and gut of the man in the chair, knocking him unconscious. He jumps down from the podium and walks over to the camera, picking it up and holding it in front of his face, allowing the viewers a perfect shot of Krótos mask, his long hair tied up in a ponytail behind his head, falling all the way down to his shoulders. "I now turn my attention directly to you, little inhabitant of the old Titan's Tower. I know you are in there, and I want you to come here, personally. If anyone other than the Titan arrives at my door, I will kill this piece of shit and destroy the entire building. Krótos waved his detonator in front of the camera for added effect. "The clock is ticking little Titan. Unless you get here within twenty minutes, before four o'clock, I will kill the man, destroy this corrupted house of justice, and leave, striking again as often as I feel necessary. My name is Krótos, remember me now? At my hands, this city will come Crashing to its knees. Ta-ta little one." At that, Krótos turned the camera off and jumped up onto the podium, sitting with his legs crossed, waiting for the Titan to show up, not expecting the chaos of the situation that will unfold shortly.

Aura was stuck in the usual scene, being repeated over and over again...

It was nice out. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. They were chatting, when an earsplitting siren sounded. The two whom were strolling down the street looked around confused. An loud BANG rang through the air, and Aura's mother's knees buckled. Screaming filled the air. Pitiful, strained screaming. It came from Aura. Tears stung the back of her eyes, when her head whipped around, staring at a man with a pistol.

Aura launched her entire body at him, tackling him to the ground. The man was screeching in pain as his skin began to sizzle and melt off his bones. Aura was sobbing while she had her arms wrapped around him.

Suddenly, everything went dark. The sound of gun shots rang through Aura's head multiple times. BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG!


"STOP IT!" Aura screamed, sitting up abruptly from her bed. The blanked was blasted off of her body, and hit the ground with a soft thump. Aura was confused and scared, waking up in a strange place, again. She felt tears burn the her eyes, and flow out, blurring her vision. "Wh-where am I? He-hello?" She whimpered, looking around, whipping her head back and forth. Aura could tell this wasn't a hospital, she couldn't smell the cleaning alcohol. She sat on the bed, with her legs crossed, and her head hung from her sagging shoulders, and she cried like a lost little girl, which was practically what she was.

“Hey, you guys see this? Party at the courtyardand we’re invited!” Melanie heard Pulse yell, a small note of urgency in his normally smooth voice. She hurried into the room just as the news came on, and what she saw she was horrified by.

Krótos.

Melanie knew from the moment he started talking.

"Ahh... It appears I'm live." he said coolly, "Welcome, Jump City, to my courtroom. As you can see, court is now in session." The lights flick on and camera is focused on a heavily beaten Judge Ramirez whom Melanie recognized from newspaper articles. He spoke alot about fixing the crime infestation by fixing what caused it in the first place, but she herself had seen very litle effort. In fact, quite the opposite, but still... "I see you've found our defendant today." Though she could not see him, she knew all too well who was behind the held camera. "Allow me to introduce myself. I am Krótos." The camera was set down and Melanie watched in revulsion has the familiar mask came into view.

"Hello Jump City, so glad you could join me. We are here today for the case of the people vs. Judge Ramirez. How does the defendant plead?" Krótos asked mockingly, turning to the judge, bound and gagged to a chair in the background. He grunts a few times before Krótos interrupts him. "Guilty? A wise decision. Then let us review the evidence." At that, Krótos walked over to his bag and pulled out a multitude of papers which he then tosses carelessly into the air, motionless as they flutter down all around him to settle on the floor. "I have here; a river of pleas, requests, and general approvals of my action against you. That is, accounts of your cruelty, corruption, and general filth. This choir of innocent voices wishes for me to destroy you Mister Ramirez; how does that make you feel?" Krótos asked, taunting the man who then tries desterately to defend himself but cannot speak past the gag.

"ENOUGH!" Krótos roars, suddenly infuriated, lunging at the frantically struggling man and slapping him in the face hard enough that red marks are already appearing and he goes silent. "Shush now, little one, the adults are talking. These papers are all filled with eyewitness accounts of you accepting bribes, both of currency and the flesh. Accounts of you overriding a jury's findings due to inconclusiveness are also rampant. Finally, there are even accounts of abuse and assault against minors who come to you pleading for their parents." Krótos spoke so matter-of-factly that it might have seemed hard to tell who was the judge on the screen.

"You, my dear Piece of trash, are the lowest scum in this city and it will be my personal honor to watch the life leave your eyes." Once more Krótos smashes his fist into the face and gut of the man in the chair who slumps over, knocked out. Sadisfied, Krótos walks over to the camera, picking it up and holding it in front of his face, the face Melanie had already burned into her hardrive. "I now turn my attention directly to you, little inhabitant of the old Titan's Tower. I know you are in there, and I want you to come here, personally. If anyone other than the Titan arrives at my door, I will kill this piece of shit and destroy the entire building." Krótos waved what seemed to be a detonator in front of the camera mockingly.

"The clock is ticking little Titan. Unless you get here within twenty minutes, before four o'clock, I will kill the man, destroy this corrupted house of justice, and leave, striking again as often as I feel necessary." Though she couldn't see his face, Melanie could almost hear the sneer in his voice. "My name is Krótos. Remember me now? At my hands, this city will come crashing to its knees. Ta-ta little one."

Melanie's finger twitched slightly and the news shut off abruptly as if someone had reatched out and turned the TV off. Melanie was ridged and she looked warily at each of her little team members who also stood in the room, obviously each one of them aware of the gravity this messege held.

"Krótos." Melanie said finally, breaking the silence. "I guess you all know what we have to do. He's visited our home before, and threated us similarly, but this... this is more than I had anticipated." She sighed slightly, a small huff that reveiled a note of panic. "See for yourselves. You might as well, since now he's a threat to not only us but also Jump City." Walking over to the TV she fiddled with it for a moment before the security footage from two nights ago came on.

The dark masked figure they all now knew as Krótos was still speaking to himself. "It matters not anymore whether you are bright now, your darkness was revealed to me once. I will purge it. I will purge this corrupt city of both its law-keepers and law-breakers, only the innocent will survive. After that, they will have to grow strong." He reatched up and removed his mask, but his back was to the camera and she could not see his face. "Did you hear me?" He asked, addressing the camera aimed at him. "This is the last time I will visit your little tower as a neutral bystander. Now, I'm coming for you, little Titan. As a symbol of the City's corruption and dependence on useless heroes, you will be first." Then he turned, the mask on and again hiding his face, which he lowered to stare into the camera's lense, a challenge in his voice. "Prepare yourself, little Titan. My name is Krótos. Remember it. For what little time you have left will be haunted by it." With that his hand came up and the video turned to static. Melanie quickly shut it off (this time with an actually remote so as not to raise suspition).

"So it sounds like he sort of has the right idea, you know, to help the city and all that, which I suppose is something he's got going for him. But he's going about bringing justice as if he too were a criminal. We can't let him go around killing people, even if it's for the greater good, but since we don't exactly abide by those particular standereds, he's decided we've got to go too." Melanie said, standing infront of her team, "But by the sound of the video though, he doesn't know about any of you yet. So we can take him by surprise. We'll show up and I'll confront him, then I'll call you all in when the fight starts getting out of hand." Glancing at the clock on the wall she witheld a small gasp.

3:29

"We need to hurry if we're going to make it there in time! Get what ever you need but make it fast! Also, someone needs to check on Aurora and let her know what's going on so she can decide if she wants to come along." Then, feeling a strange compulsion, she added with urgency, "Titans- GO!"

Pulse was lying on Livewires floor, rolling around in pain on top of a ceiling panel.

Earlier, he had woken up by, like now, falling off of something. In this case his hammock. After getting back up, he gave himself a good scratch, ate an orange from a mysterious canvas bag, and checked the positioning of The Ultistars Satellite Bay on a computer system he had salvaged from his drop pod. It would be available in about an hour, and if the boosters activated, it could either rush, or stick around for half an hour. Orbits and trajectory were so precise sometimes.

Below him, he heard a T.V. turn on, probably Livewire, but Pulse couldn't be too sure about that. He lifted a cold, hard, steel floor plate off of it's frame, revealing a web of wiring. Carefully, he weaved them apart, finding a ceiling panel. After failing to get it off by grabbing it, he resorted to pushing it down. After that didn't work, he decided that he was going to jump on it. The moment he stood on it, it collapsed beneath him, dropping him into Livewires room.

"ARGGGGGHHHHHHH" he rolled around on the plate screaming like a child, curling up into a ball. Something on the T.V. that he could see through the fury though was confusing. There was a man with a mask threatening somebody else. It seemed that the man he was holding hostage was corrupt or some nonsense, but it looked like he was going to kill him. Not cleanly either. Barbarian.

Melanie's voice was heard as he started to get up again. "So it sounds like he sort of has the right idea, you know, to help the city and all that, which I suppose is something he's got going for him. But he's going about bringing justice as if he too were a criminal. We can't let him go around killing people, even if it's for the greater good, but since we don't exactly abide by those particular standards, he's decided we've got to go too, but by the sound of the video though, he doesn't know about any of you yet. So we can take him by surprise. We'll show up and I'll confront him, then I'll call you all in when the fight starts getting out of hand. We need to hurry if we're going to make it there in time! Get whatever you need but make it fast! Also, someone needs to check on Aurora and let her know what's going on so she can decide if she wants to come along."

This was serious, Somebody could die, somebody could be saved, he could go wake up Aurora...

Somebody is going to die here plug-freak

He could go be a team player... and show off the Ultistar...

Yes. He was going to do this, the moment just needed a little something, a catchphrase to set them off.

"Titans- GO!"

Oh yeah, that was it. He bolted, jumping up through the ceiling, climbing into his room. Strange, as he shouldn't be able to do that on a bad day.
"This must be one hell of a good day then." He grabbed his suit, the pads to protect his plugs easily removable in the need be situation of Mech entry. He summoned the didgeridoos with his technological wizardry embedded inside of him. Next, he burst through his door, and ran over to Aurora's room, flinging the door open to see her... crying. He immediately, closed it, pulling back on the handle just before it slammed so it wouldn't make a noise. Maybe he could talk to her though.

"Err, Aura, there's a job that needs, err doing." He could hear his accent slipping away, which was weird, as that didn't usually happen. "I don't think we can do it without you and you're crazy-ass fire powers."

Aura's head jerked up when she heard, "Err, Aura, there's a job that needs, err doing." Aura slammed her palms on her bed and all the water flowing from her eyes flew off her face, and disappeared in the air. She rubbed her eyes hurriedly, though it only made her reddened eyes even redder. She choked back another sob, then grabbed the mask off the nightstand and shoved it on her face. Walking over to the door, she opened it up and saw Pulse, which made her feel worse. "I don't think we can do it without you and you're crazy-ass fire powers." Her lower lipped quivered, then she hung her head. "I-I'm s-sorry. I-I d-didn't mean to pass out on you like that." She bit her lip in an attempt to stop herself from crying. "Its just... when I over exert myself... I... pass out." Aura choked out finally. She lifted her hand and rubbed her eyes, catching a bot of water. "I-I d-don't know if I can use my fire powers again... I don't want to pass out again..." She sniffled. But she looked up, determination in her eyes. "But I have other powers, ones that drain me a bit less. I can be of some use. But if we get into a tight space, I'll force myself to use fire." Her voice was now eager, that sadness wiped from her face. "Oh, and thank you. For carrying me back." She smiled up at Pulse. Aura gave him a little bow of apology once more.

"I-I'm s-sorry. I-I d-didn't mean to pass out on you like that, Its just... when I over exert myself... I... pass out. "I-I d-don't know if I can use my fire powers again... I don't want to pass out again..." This was pretty heavy even for him. His powers didn't come with a price that was physically endangering, they were just screwed in, and just made him a bit more self-conscious.
"But I have other powers, ones that drain me a bit less. I can be of some use. But if we get into a tight space, I'll force myself to use fire."

This was still pretty saddening to him, all of a sudden. He was glad that she trusted him enough to tell him this, and it was probably going to be useful.
"Oh, and thank you. For carrying me back."

He saw her smile, and started blushing. He felt the heat in his face and turned away after realizing that color was actually appearing on his face.

"It's okay." His voice reverted to that accent he had stuck with. Probably a problem with the translation chip. "I'd carry everyone on this team, even White, if the li'l dev'l wouldn't shake around so much." The reason he had came to her room flashed back into his head, blaring at volumes comparable to his Didgeridoo's. "We gotta move though la-err-Aura, some nut be holding a corrupt Judge hostage, and we best be saving him, for some unknown adequate reason." He didn't understand why they actually wanted to stop the man from killing the judge. He didn't like it because it would surely be barbaric, but other than that, no legitimate reason. Maybe it was an actual Hero thing. "Get ready though, we gotta move."

And with that, he dashed for the main room for the rest of the titans.

Aura looked at Pulse as his face turned a bit red. She giggled slightly, then acted as if she hadn't seen it. "It's okay. I'd carry everyone on this team, even White, if the li'l dev'l wouldn't shake around so much." Aura laughed. "That does seem as if it would be rather difficult." She responded with a smile.

"We gotta move though la-err-Aura, some nut be holding a corrupt Judge hostage, and we best be saving him, for some unknown adequate reason." Aura listened to Pulse, thinking his sudden change in accent and dialect was interesting. She'd have to ask about it later. Hmm... no actual reason... "Get ready though, we gotta move." Aura nodded. She knew she'd be able to keep up, if she didn't pass them anyway. As Pulse dashed off, Aura followed directly after keeping pace with him, running right beside him. She soon realized she wasn't running full speed.

After a few moments, the two entered the main room, where the other Titans were. "Hey guys 'm feeling better what are we going to be doing about this and who's this guy attacking the judge and how are we going to stop him and OH GOSH AURA BREATH." Aura said in one big breath, then taking a big gulp of oxygen to refill her lungs. "Sorry." She apologized. She felt herself shaking, not with fright, but with excitement. She couldn't keep still... well... more then usually at least.

Melanie nodded towards the ones who stood around her.

"Get your things and get going. Your comminicators will show you where to go. Follow it and wait around the courthouse. Stay out of sight if you can." With those short instructions she turned on her heel and walked out of the room, the doors sliding closed behind her.

The moment the doors closed her hollographic image vanished.

Melanie appeared again in her room. They still weren't suspitious, which was good. She'd accidently shut the TV off earlier, but fortunatly no one had asked about that. And they hadn't asked about the weird shift in her eye color either, so she took that as a good sign. Still she would have to be careful. One slip up and the jig would be up, her secret out.

Making a metal note of cation she walked to Mel who stood, repaired, against the wall. She been damaged the night before but it had been mild and Melanie had been able to fix the problems fairly easily. Reaching out she activated the robot and vanished into the vessel. After a moment of callibration she streched and blinked, previously blue eyes now gold again. Then she rushed out of her door and to the roof.

3:52

Tensing up she launched from the launching platform and flew into the air. She had very little time. Quickly she found the shortest route to the courthouse and set off at full speed. Soaring through the air she could see the panicked audience below, most of their eyes glued to the screen which was reporting the events as they unfolded. A few eyes turned to the sky and pointed to her, but she could not hear what they cried out as she passed by overhead.

Oddly the crowds had not swarmed around the building and their wasn't a soul to be seen when she arrived at 3:58. Walking up to the doors she pushed them open with ease and stepped into the building. They creaked closed eerily behind her as she continued down the dark hallway and up to the courtroom doors. Taking a deep breath she said softly into her communicator, "Titans, if you're here yet, be on guard. This Krótos guy is bad news. I will call you in if things start to go wrong."

3:59

The doors went flying open and slammed against the walls with a loud BAM.

"Krótos!" Melanie called sternly, seeing the masked man approaching the the bloodied judge with a knife in his hand, obviously about to keep his promise to the people. "You threatened that I would be the first person you purged in your cleasing of this city. Well here I am, the symbol of the City's corruption and dependence on useless heroes." She could almost hear the audiences on the other side of the camera cheering, but remained focused on Krótos, getting in a position to fight. "Now face me and we'll see how useless of a hero I really am."

Aura was still a bit confused. Alright, Aurora, piece what you know together. Corrupt judge. Killer ‘hero’. Threats. Death. Blah blah blah… the ususal. Aura’s eyebrow’s creased together as she frowned. Just because that man is corrupt doesn’t mean he should die. No one should die. Aura shook her head in an attempt to clear it. She rubbed her temple. This was so overwhelming. She had been asleep ten minutes earlier. A sudden sound rang in her ears as she dashed to a window. She saw Melanie, who’s name she had overheard, blast off the roof. “Well, that escalated quickly.” Aura muttered to herself. Looking down at the water, she wondered how she was going to get to the city. She sure as hell wasn’t going to let someone carry her. Aura could take care of herself.

Aura blinked for a moment, then brought her gaze back down to the water again. Water… Water… Water! She facepalmed for not realizing earlier that she was in Titan Tower. She whipped her head back, looking at the boys, then spoke. “See ya fellas. I’ve got my own way of getting there.” Aura pulled open the window, and hopped up, placing her feet on the windowsill. She leaned forwards, and then pushed off with a blast of air to propel her. She clamped her mouth shut as she dove into the water. Her temperature had adjusted quickly to the water, taking away most of the shock. The water funneled around Aura’s body, and rocketed her forwards. Every once in a while, Aura would launch herself out of the water, very similar to what a dolphin would do. She would refill her lungs with air, then dive back in, and the water would continue to push her forwards. Water was Aura’s best element, and it barely took away any energy.



Once Aura reached the city’s coast, she soared out of the water, and landed on her feet, but stumbled a bit. “WHOA WHAT A RUSH!” She cried happily, raising her hands in the air. She then shook herself like a dog to remove most of the water. Then, she pulled the rest of the water off of her using her powers. Aura knew where the courthouse was. It was very close to the bank. Aura dashed forwards, zooming past other people. She looked like blur. The air helped push her, increasing her strides and the power of her steps. In only a few minutes, she made it to the hostile area. Circling around, she found a window, which she plopped her face right in front of. It was slightly ajar, but that didn’t really matter. Krotos looked very strong, but her was wearing a mask. I wonder how he sees with that thing on… maybe he doesn’t need to see? Aura wondered.

The two were about to fight. Aura knew it was not her turn. But what made her angry was when she saw Krotos was about to throw the papers at Melanie. When the papers flew through the air, she let Krotos think that his little plan had worked. She then took a deep inhale, then blew as hard as she could. A large gust had blown the papers away from them both, and fluttered down to a stop on the other side of the room before they could block Melanie's vision. Aura couldn’t help but snicker a bit.

Melanie's eyed hardened as Krótos turned to face her. "Well, you're here. You've even remembered my little greeting, how nice. You do seem to be a very proper girl after all." Krótos said, obviously pleased. Melanie said nothing as he went on, mockingly. "So very nice of you to join us as per our request. We were just about to begin."

Krótos pulled a staff from his belt, still holding the knives and kukiri carefully in his offhand. Melanie made note of these weapons and was carefully watching for any indication of him using these weapons as the staff snapped to its full length, followed imedeately after by his kukiri, then lastly the knives. The blade of his scythe glinted, though as Melanie scanned it she could see the blade was not sharp enough to severe metal in one blow, though human flesh was another matter entirely.

His movements were confident, meticulous as if he knew absolutely everything was going to go his way and there was absolutely nothing she could do to surprise him. He walked towards her calmly, carefully while Melanie stood her ground. Though on the outside she feinted nervousness, computers could not get nervous, only catious.

"You know what this man is, right? Do you know what he's done?" Krótos asked slowly as if she were metally deficient. Slowly he bend down and picked up the papers he had as evidence against the judge. "Accepting bribes, adultery, abuse, and assault; perhaps you need a reminder." Suddenly he threw the papers in the air around her. The good thing about being a supercomputer though was, as they fluttered to form a paper thin wall (if you'll excuse the pun) in front of him, she scanned each docment and stored the information, verifying it while her present mind focused on Krótos. He charged, his outline visable through said paper thin wall as he brought the scythe around his body, ready to swing it lengthwise and cut her in half.

Melanie was ready. She too leapt foreward, but sprung instead upwards and effectively jumped over the scythe as it swung but missed it's target. She landed delicately behind him, turning to face him and inevertly placing herself between him and the judge who was begining to gain consciousness again. "Yes, I do know what he is and I am fully aware of what he has done." Melanie replied calmly, looking directly into the sockets of Krótos' mask, "His name is Mark Ramirez, know to the common as Judge Ramirez and known to the common criminal as a man easily swayed by a large sum of money or the promise of a pretty face."

Melanie gestured to Judge Ramirez who was now fully awake, though still looked very confused. "He's a dishonest man who has commited the same crimes as those he judges without having to face the sentences he decrees because he's a criminal with that sort of power. Power over another's life." Suddenly she became very serious. "Just. Like. You." Moving in a blur she ducked down and aimed a round house kick at Krótos' ankles, seeking to make him stumble. 'I want a DNA sample,' Melanie thought as a strong and sudden wind blew the paper wall away and across the room, revieling Krótos fully, 'I want to know who or what this guy is.'

"You see it don't you? You're playing judge. You're unsadisfied and have decided to give him the death setence because of that. Sure you have your excuses and your neat little papers, but the real reason behind your decree is because getting to decide the outcome human life makes you feel powerful and that's your greatest desire Krótos. That's your ultiment goal." She spoke harshly as he was forced down and she grabbed a hold of a fist full of his hair, scanning it for any matches. "Isn't that right... Ryan O'Connell?"

With that she let go and jumped back, speaking into her communicator, "Titans- to my side!" Shouting so the audience on the other side of the camera could hear she said, "But where is the jury, Judge O'Connell? You claim the people want to rise up against this man; let them! Or are you going to follow the footsteps of the very man you seek to convict and overrule them when you know they will support the justice you claim to uphold?" Falling into a fighting stance a slender katana emerged from her large stash of weapons within Mel's robot body. "Because if you will not deliever justice, they will. If they will not, I will. And if ever I cannot, then others will rise up and take my place as heroes and defenders of Jump City."

At that moment her communicator beeped the locations of her teammates just as each one burst into the room. She could feel her heart swelling with pride in her friends and their perfect timing. It was five to one, and in the back of her mind Melanie filed away a recording of her vailent speach, making a note to watch a recording of the news and see if the camera had caught all of it.

Meanwhile, back at the tower, her systems had encountered a hacker. Hacking was something Melanie specialized in because she knew the ins and outs of computers and the web like no other human could claim to. Being hacked into was an entirely different matter though. Immedeately her systems attacked the program which was searching for anything it could find relating to Krótos as it turned out. Melanie was alerted of the situation, but being focused in another matter she told it to go by defalt. Following programing, an electric scrambler was sent out to the offending electronic, disabling it. It had no information, not being connected to a mainframe and instead used indepently, which was disappointing but not crippling. The PDA released a small spark followed by a puff of smoke before going dead. When (and if) it was restored, the messege "Try that again and all electronics within a five meter radius will have the same result" would be the only information it had collected.

Left alone with White was not Pulse's idea, it was merely a matter of circumstance.
"Well, since it's just us left, we might as well go crash this little jig." He grabbed White's wrist, and blasted off into the direction of the courthouse. As they were above it, he dropped the Ogre, watching him smash through the roof, and subsequently, the ceiling. The ordeal revealed what was going on inside. He stopped his breathing, and plummeted as well into the room of strewn papers and feared, and unless otherwise stated, corrupt judge.

Maybe I should cushion myself with this fall, it may blow the others a bit back, but ooooohhhhhhhhh too late matey

His voice rang out for most that cared to hear. "DYNAMIC ENTRY!"
He landed on the courtroom floor beside White. He had managed to land on his feet with his knees bent, but had required the use of his arm to lessen the pressure in a very generic, and cliché pose. It was necessary at this time that he say something.

"Where be yer law degree Madam?" This question was the only one he could think of in time, and as he got up, he was shocked to see the assailant still in his wait, it wasn't a girl with a voice changer? But that was the oldest trick in the book? These earth criminals were a lot smarter than they seemed. "Oh my, I'm terribly sorry, I thought you were a lady...and...well..." He cringed, and backpedaled behind Melanie, dragging White with him.
