Starlight is a Light Neko, otherwise known as The Nekos of the Day.

| Affiliation |
Captain Rubber’s First Mate: the only person she will ever take orders from.

| Faceclaim |
Tsubasa Hanekawa

| Appearance |
Starlight is the definition of eye-catching.
Her hair is pure white and very long, reaching just below her waist. She generally wears it down, but might put it up in a braid occasionally. Her eyes are the color of pure gold, and her pupils slit and expand to match the amount of light she is in. She’s about 6’1’’ and weighs in around 140 pounds. She has beautiful, feminine curves to go along with her lean, powerful muscles. Her skin is of a pale complexion.

Resting on the top of her head, along with her regular human ears, are a pair of snow white ears with pink insides. Growing from her tailbone is a long white tail that reaches just above her head. She has retractable claws on both her fingers and toes. She has fangs that grow and shrink at her will.

Like many other Light Nekos, Starlight has a Neko form. She takes the appearance of a large, snow white tiger, being about 6’5’’ at the shoulder and more than 15 feet long from head tail. When in this form, her eyes turn blood red and her pupils slit, no matter the amount of light.

| Personality |
Starlight is one mysterious creature. Her origins are unknown by everybody, except for maybe some cryptic hints she’s uttered when in a drunken stupor.
Similar to that of her Captain, Starlight can easily be described as a cruel and cold person. She’s practically heartless; showing no mercy for the people who have fallen victim to her quick claws and short temper. She’s distant and prefers her own company over everybody else’s.

She has a sort of sadistic playfulness to her. She likes to tease her prey, play with it before finally ending its life. She can be overly cocky and robust when facing an opponent, which can get her into trouble sometimes. She is known to easily seduce men with her dashing looks.

Starlight has sharp claws, but her tongue is sharper. She’s quick witted, clever, strategic, and amazingly intelligent; not to mention she can easily talk someone’s ear off. Getting in an argument with her is not a very smart idea for more than one reason. She’s got an extremely short temper and can easily fly into a blind rage, destroying everything that crosses her path. When in a rage state, she practically goes feral and may even shift into her Neko form.

Many people have different sides to them, but it seems as if Starlight only has one. No one has ever found the “heart of gold” that almost everyone has buried deep within their souls. Starlight is not kind, she is not generous, and she is not friendly. She was born a monster and raised to be a killer, and it appears that nobody can change that.

| Weapons |
Starlight carries many, many weapons with her, including:
Throwing Knives
A Balisong Knife
A Dagger
A Rapier
A Bow and Some Arrows
and Shurikens

Not to mention, Starlight herself is a weapon. Her claws and fangs are razor sharp and capable of tearing through flesh and slicing armor. Her jaw is strong enough to bite through bone and metal. She is inhumanly flexible and strong, not to mention her senses are heightened. She can describe in detail her surroundings even if her eyes are covered.

| Equipment |
Starlight always seems to carry too little. She only appears to have the clothes on her back and a certain black cape that she never seems to take off. It reaches just above the floor and has a hood for her to hide her ears in. To most people, they see the cape and think nothing of it; perhaps maybe a bad fashion choice. But this cape is much more than just a piece of black cloth.

Starlight’s cape is known as The Thief's Cape. It is a cape that can magically store a numerous amount of items, and only the owner of the cape can access the hidden items that lie within the cape. Starlight herself has no idea just how much can be stored in the cape. If someone who doesn’t own the cape tries to access the secrets of the cape, they would just be grabbing at dark, empty fabric.

Within the cape, Starlight carries her weapons and the essentials; some food, clothing, a map, a small telescope, and just the right amount of money.

Also, Starlight always wears a necklace with a star pendant. If you dare try to take it off or touch it, she will kill you. No hesitation. What. So. Ever.

| Abilities |
~Feline Attributes~
Being part cat has its perks. All of Starlight’s senses have been heightened sharply, and she can see in the dark. She’s extremely flexible and utterly strong for her age and body shape. Her tail makes her more balanced. Her claws and fangs are built in weapons.

However, her attributes also provide her with weaknesses. Loud sounds and smells can weaken and distract her. Both her tail and ears are very sensitive. If her tail is broken, dislocated, or restrained, it can throw her off balance completely.

~Photokinesis~
Photokinesis is the ability to manipulate light.
All Light Nekos are born with some form of Photokinesis. Some are simply born with much better capabilities and some are born with worse. Even at her young age, Starlight showed great potential to become a master over the element of light. However, she chose to take the path of an assassin opposed to that of a mage. She does sometimes practice by herself, and even then her power is tremendous. She can create small balls of light in her palm, however it is much easier to manipulate existing light.

She can channel light into powerful beams and blasts that can blind people, burn their skin, or knock them off balance. She has been practicing making tangible items out of light. She has been able to create small knives and daggers, but anything larger practically makes her pass out from exhaustion. She’s capable of “bounding people in light”. The light surrounds them and takes on the effect of rope, binding their limbs together and rendering them helpless.

| Bio |
Starlight’s true origins are unknown to everyone except herself.

Like many other mystical creatures, she was born into “servanthood”, otherwise known as slavery in disguise. She was taken from her parents as a baby and given to another family, only for that family to be abusive and treat her like dirt. Everytime she spoke out, she was beaten and starved.
She spent the first nine years of her life in a living hell. But one fateful day, all of that changed. She was rescued by a vigilante. He took her back to his home where he lived alone. The man, who never revealed his face or identity, told her to call him “Master”. It was very clear that this man was different from others. He promised her safety, security, and training. He told her that she would start anew, with a new name and a new identity. So she chose her new name and told the man that she wanted to be like him; a dark hero, a knight in black armor, a cerberus for people to both fear and respect.

So Master taught her. His name was not representing his power over her, his name was representing his knowledge and mastery over all that he does. So he did his best to pass his knowledge onto this little girl who wanted nothing more than to be somebody. He taught her how to fight weaponless or with weapons, close combat or ranged.

Starlight, with her new name and newfound abilities, started taking up jobs. Jobs as a bodyguard, an assassin, a thief, anything that would make her money and help build up her name. At around 18, the royalty caught wind of this “White Shadow” streaking through the towns and cities surrounding the castle. People were sent after her. Of course, she avoided them and fought them off, but eventually she was overwhelmed and captured. She was restrained and put on public display, to wallow in her own shame before she would have been executed.

People laughed, pointed, spat at her, cursed her kind, and much worse. The guards who stood by her didn’t take notice. Master caught wind of Starlight impending demise. He went to free her, but there were many more guards than her had planned to be there. He managed to free her, but was mortally wounded in the process. They escaped, Starlight practically carrying him. They made it back to his home, where he bled out in her arms.

Since that day, Starlight promised to never bow down to any king or queen. She now knew that there is corruption in everything. She gathered her things and spent most of her money paying for Master’s burial. After he was traditionally buried, Starlight took all she could, and burned down his house.

Starlight needed to start anew once more. She noticed a ship docked and decided to stowaway. It was not long before she was discovered. She begged them to let her stay and become part of their crew. They most likely would have thrown her into the middle of the ocean if not for Captain Rubber. He allowed her to stay long enough that she could prove herself as a good addition to his crew. She managed to defeat his best fighter in mere moments. However, when he asked her to fight him, she refused, saying that he was her captain, and that she was not worthy to fight him.

He let her stay, and it was not long before she began rising in the ranks to become Captain Rubber’s First Mate. He is the only person she will ever be loyal to, and the only person who she will ever take orders from. She trusts him with her life, which is something very rare for her.


So begins...

Clunk, click, clunk, click.

The sound of heavy leather boots hitting a dirt road echoed throughout the silence that surrounded Starlight. With her hood down and her hair tucked into the cape, her white locks and pointed ears were rather prominent. The dark fabric of the cape moved in the wind behind her, her white shirt and leather tunic showing. Her black trousers matched her black leather boots.

As Starlight strutted her way down the local marketplace, people would stop and stare, perhaps cower away or lock their doors. Starlight herself could only smirk and continue walking, staring at the little shops around her. She knew that she was a symbol, the “White Shadow” of Omega, who had been gone for so long to only make a fateful return. Those who weren’t hiding their possessions were standing up a bit straighter. Since the deal they made with Lady Dream, Captain Rubber and Starlight had become the new faces of the rebellion.

Starlight paused in her step, her nose twitching as she caught the strong scent of fish on display in a local stand. She turned on her heel and walked closer so she was standing directly in front of it. The man behind it shuffled back. The scent of his fear practically over powered the smell of the fish before her.

“From this morning’s catch, I presume?” Starlight asked with a pleasant hum, her ears twitching in delight.

“Y… yes.”

“Yes ma’am.” She cast him a steely glance, her eyes narrowing.

“Y-yes ma’am! They don’t come any fresher than this unless you pulled them right off the hooks yourself!”

“Hmm…” For a moment, Starlight seriously considered buying some. Her stomach growled, seemingly annoyed by the fact that she had darted off the ship the moment they had docked this morning and hasn’t eaten since.

“Excuse me, ma’am?” A heavy hand landed on her shoulder, gripping it rather harshly.

“Excuse you, if you wish to keep that hand, I recommend you-” Before Starlight could even finish her sentence, the hand spun her around so she was facing the man behind her.

Starlight let out an aggravated sigh as she saw the standard issue armor for Queen “Violent”’s soldiers. She quickly assessed the situation as two other men moved in beside her, grabbing both of her arms and lifting her off a few inches of the ground for good measure. The first man held up a piece of parchment beside her head, her image drawn on it. “Yup, this looks to be her.” He nodded, putting the scroll away. He took a step towards her, pressing his face closer to hers. Their gazes locked, his stern and hard. Starlight had to resist a snide smirk.

He’s trying to intimidate me…

“So you’re the one causing all of the trouble around here, eh?” His grin turned wicked. Starlight couldn’t help but raise an eyebrow. “Get her cloak off.” She grimaced as someone practically tore it off, thanking the gods that they didn’t actually tear it. Her tail, now free, swayed back and forth behind her, displaying her irritation. “Cuff her.” The heavy iron cuffs were placed around her wrists, keeping them trapped behind her back. The two soldiers then allowed her to actually stand on her feet, however they kept their grip on her arms.

The man pulled out his dagger, stepping forward and pressing the blade over her throat. “Perhaps I should just kill you now? The kingdom could do without scum like you and your kind.”

Starlight curled her lip up in a silent snark, her pupils slitting and her ears flattening to her head.

“What’s wrong? The kitty-cat doesn’t like being teased?” He trailed the large knife across her skin almost delicately, not breaking skin but drawing a shudder from the Neko. “Oh, what’s this?” He moved the blade of the dagger underneath the silver chain of her necklace. Her breath caught in her throat slightly as he tugged experimentally. “This is rather pretty. It would make a nice gift for my wife… and your hide would make a nicer gift to my queen.”

“I pity any woman that has to deal with the likes of you.” Starlight spat, her eyes flashing with anger.

The man narrowed his eyes, and with the flick of his wrist, the silver chain snapped, the necklace clattering to the ground.

“You should not have done that.” She snarled lowly, her hands clenching into tight fists.

“What are you going to do about it?” He asked, stepping forward, his blade at the ready.

Starlight then began to strain against the cuffs, creating a loud groaning sound as the metal strained along with her. She knew she probably couldn’t snap them, but that wasn’t what she was looking for. One of the men gripping her arm paused to glance behind her. He released her arm and made a move toward the cuffs. Bingo.

As soon as one side was free, Starlight threw all of her body weight against the other man gripping her arm, catching him off guard. He stumbled and let her go. Before anyone else had a chance to grab her again, she rolled forward away from them, hastily leaping back to her feet without the use of her hand. She jumped upwards and scrunched her knees to her chest, swinging her linked wrists underneath her so that her hands were in front of her instead.

By then, the three men had already began their charge towards her once more. The one man who had released her arm prematurely swung his longsword high in the air, most likely aiming to bury it into her skull. But instead, she raised her hands, and the weight of the mighty sword crashed into the cuffs, breaking the chain holding them together. “Thanks.” She said with a smirk, her hands now free.

The fight had barely even started and Starlight could tell these men were most likely new to their little squad. Another few swings of his sword were easily dodged. She threw a few quick blows on her own, before a roundhouse kick to the side of his head made him drop. The second man took a bit longer to knock down, his rapier was much lighter and quicker than the man who held a longsword. But Starlight was the epitome of speed, so he didn’t even stand a chance. Her claws tore through his thin chestplate like a knife through butter, his crimson blood dripping from the tips of her claws.

“Coward!” Starlight growled at the last man, the one wielding the dagger. “You allowed your men to fall before you, while you stood and watched! Its because of people like you this kingdom will fall!”

He simply clenched his jaw and darted forward. Their scuffle was much longer than the other two. His jabs were planned and quick, a very choice one scoring down her arm, eliciting a painful yowl from the Neko. She felt her own blood pouring from the new gash on her arm. She muttered a silent curse before ending the man’s life in one swift slice, her claws once again tearing through the weak armor on his neck.

Starlight’s ears twitched with the sound of more approaching soldiers. She quickly snatched up her cloak and tied it back on. Before she disappeared into the shadows, she paused in front of the fish vendor. She picked up a nice looking bass, a smirk returning to her lips. “I hope you don’t mind.” The man responded with the shaking of his head. Starlight slipped it into her cape, it disappearing from thin air.

And with that she was gone. She put her hood up, her hand gripping her arm under the cloak, trying to stop the bleeding. After she was absolutely sure no one was following her, she made her way back to the ship. As soon as her feet were planted on the deck, she did her best to act normal. She made her way over to the cabins, pausing in front of Artemis’ door. Her ears flicked, detecting movement inside.

Starlight took a deep breath and simply walked inside, closing the door behind her. “Good morning, Artemis.” She said nonchalantly. “Do you mind… er… giving me a hand dressing this?” She asked, pushing her cloak away to expose the long, bloody cut starting from the middle of her upper arm and ending just above her elbow. Her sleeve was soaked a dark red with her own blood. “Also… could you, maybe, keep this between us. Roa-, er, Rubber, doesn’t need to know about this.”

Artemis had been up for hours, trying to figure out what she wanted to do that day. She could go horse riding in the valleys outside of Purplexia, or she could go to one of the local bars and or pubs and have a few drinks and gamble a bit. She sat down in her cabin's room, and sighed to herself. Ever since she joined Captain Rubber's crew, life had been better for her. She could go anywhere and do anything she wanted....but the one thing she really wanted, and what no one knew what freedom.

She sat there in her room, dressed in her maroon, and dark emerald colored uniform that hugged tightly to her bodest.
Her golden detailed wrist guards were tightened against her wrist, and her emerald, gold, and maroon detailed and colored leather boots were tied tightly around her legs and shins. She sighed again to herself as she slowly started to fall asleep again, but when she heard a knock on her door, she jumped and stood to her feet.

As she heard, '' “Good morning, Artemis. ” She watched as Star came into her cabin room and closed the door softly behind her. It wasn't anything special that Starlight would come into her room every now and then to talk or something. The odd pair got along well. Artemis nodded to her neko friend and offered her a seat at her table. “Do you mind… er… giving me a hand dressing this?” Artemis watched as she asked, and pushed her cloak away to expose the long, bloody cut starting from the middle of her upper arm and ending just above her elbow. Her sleeve was soaked a dark red with her own blood. “Also… could you, maybe, keep this between us. Roa-, er, Rubber, doesn’t need to know about this.” Artemis took a deep breath as she saw the wound.

It wasn't too bad, but she did hate to see any of her fellow crew members with a wound, and not from battle or raids. She sighed and grabbed a bowl of warm water and a piece of spar cloth and attended to her friend's wound. She looked at Star and said, '' You really shouldn't be stealing. I could always give you money to buy food...I wouldn't mind doing that actually.'' Her face gave off a slight pink hue as she looked up at her friend, and then back down, to carefully clean the wound, and tried not to harm or cause more pain to her fellow crew member.

The sharp inhale of her shipmate made Starlight flash her million-dollar smile. “‘t's just a scratch.” She shrugged, visibly wincing due to the movement of her arm.

Starlight already knew the drill. It wasn’t… uncommon for her to come to Artemis, asking for help with strange wounds. It seemed that the younger girl already knew where most of them came from anyways. Starlight flopped into a chair, letting out a relieved sigh. Her tail flicked behind her as she rested her elbow on the table, pulling up her sleeve to expose the wound completely. Just another “prize” to add to my collection…

The neko grimaced, clenching her jaw as the cold cloth came in contact with her arm. Her ears twitched in response, flattening to her head soon after. Before her body language could gauge a response from the other girl, she spoke. “Just stings a bit. Nothing I can’t handle.”

''You really shouldn't be stealing. I could always give you money to buy food… I wouldn't mind doing that actually.''

Starlight glanced up at Artemis, fighting down the smirk creeping up on her lips. Is she flustered?

… well, I do have that effect on people.


Starlight’s ears flicked on her head once more, a slight frown forming on her face. “I wasn’t…! Er… I hadn’t planned on stealing anything. Some goons from Queen Violent’s squad of jesters caught up with me. We had a bit of a scrap. It was three against one, which isn’t very fair in my opinion. Well, the queen has never been very fair, has she…” Starlight sighed as she trailed off.

“Don’t worry about me though. I’ve got the money to buy food… usually. That’s not really the problem with me though. I never seem to be able to keep my nose out of trouble, eh?” She chuckled softly, flinching again. “Thanks for the help.” She smiled widely, letting out a pleasant purr from deep in her throat.

As she was cleaning Starlight's wound she noticed Star looked up at her and fought a smile that was everso slightly forming on her lips. As she was cleaning her friend's wound, her hearing other people's ability kicked in, even tho she couldn't always control it, she hated it sometimes....and in this circumstance, she hated it even more. Is she flustered? Is what she first heard from Star's mind....she blushed even more, but kept herself calm.

… well, I do have that effect on people. And then that....that part.....Artemis only took a deep breath again, and tried to not focus on what her friend was thinking.

As Starlight spoke up after Artemis said she would pay for anything she needed, she grabbed another clean piece of cloth and continued to clean up the blood. “I wasn’t…! Er… I hadn’t planned on stealing anything. Some goons from Queen Violent’s squad of jesters caught up with me. We had a bit of a scrap. It was three against one, which isn’t very fair in my opinion. Well, the queen has never been very fair, has she…” Starlight sighed as she trailed off. Artemis smiled at that and said, '' Well, I never really did care for royalty, so I wouldn't know about the Queen's rule....''

Don’t worry about me though. I’ve got the money to buy food… usually. That’s not really the problem with me though. I never seem to be able to keep my nose out of trouble, eh?” She chuckled softly, flinching again. Artemis smiled and said, '' You're right about that. But I tend to be more trouble when I'm drunk, so we both need to look out for each other, right?'' She said with a smile as she finished up with the wound, and wrapped it up carefully with a new set of cloth. “Thanks for the help.” Artemis noticed that she smiled widely at her and then let out a pleasant purr from deep in her throat.

She smiled and rubbed the back of her neck as she stood up and said, '' Of course. I'm always happy to help clean up anyone's wounds they get....even if they're not from battle. '' She smiled at her friend as she cleaned up, then she looked at Star one more time and said, '' And please, keep those thoughts to yourself. Remember, I can't always control what I hear.'' She gave her friend a smile and a slight laugh as she washed her hands and then went over to the other side of the cabin's wall to grab her double knives, and her long bow and quiver full of sharp, iron headed arrows. She looked at Star and said, '' Do you want to stay here, or join me on a little hunting trip for breakfast?''

#, as written by claw
The crew of the Black-Tide were idling, playing card games or drinking, as were their lot whilst in port. For these pirates the moments in port, even one that did not openly welcome their kind, this was the time for running freely, fornicating or spending their unrighteously earned plunder as they so wished. The spell of calm was violently broken however when one of the crew noticed the door to the captains cabin was thrown open "Captain on deck!" was called out across the ship, with much a stamping of feet and snapping up straight of the crewmen.

Out of the dark doorway stepped the infamous pirate lord- Captain Syther Roark, scourge of the seas, he took a moment to breath in the air and looked around at the crew before affixing to the top of his head a tri-corner hat with a large peacock feather sticking out of one edge, he pushed it back a little so it did not cover his forehead and stepped forwards with his hands on his hips.

"What the devil do you men think you are doing?" He twisted around to look at his crewmen a stern look on his face, just before it broke into a cocky grin. "You should all be drunk by now! Drink up lads!" Though the crew had been expecting a light hearted speech from their captain they cheered all the same, what pirate wouldn't when given the invitation to drink their black guts out?

The brightly dressed pirate twisted on his heel, red greatcoat flying wildly out behind him in response to his sudden movements as he made his way bellow deck, heading to Artemis's quarters, he had no real idea that she or indeed his first mate would even be there, having woken up only a few moments earlier, but it was generally a pretty good start. For those on the inside of the cabin it would appear as if the door had opened of it own accord, unless of course they were aware of his gift. Seeing that he actually guessed right on the location of his crewmen he sought a small smile broke across his face.

"Ah good there you two are! You know its always a good day when you can find what you're looking for before either you or it knows its looked for. Now then ladies, step lively if you will and kindly separate. The rumours that you two will cause." He paused like a disappointed parent, then gestured for the door. "We had best be getting a move on as it is, our latest benefactor wants us to pay her a visit and who am I to say no when a lady wants me to call? Come on then lass an' lass" just as turned to walk out of the cabin he gave Starlight a I'll be seeing you tonight wink, one of which he was well known for, nobody said that pirates didn't get their fair share of... Booty.

Stepping back out into the sunlight he stretched as he made his way over to the gangplank and began to walk backwards. "Can someone tell me why he haven't slung the black flag up around this town yet?" He was of course referring to the pirate empire he had forged, the villainous nation used the colour black as its signifying colour, even the Black-Tides flag was black for the most part, with a purple hand wreathed in a halo of white fire emblazened on the front. He turned around as he reached dry land and jumped back in surprise, stood in front of him was a captain in the queens guard, with a few of his men arrayed in formation behind him, upon seeing the Neko behind the captain he pointed up at her.

"You there halt! You are a wanted fugitive and will be coming along with us!" The captain twisted at the hip to look back at his first mate and gestured with the back of his head whilst maintaining a quizzical expression.

"Now look here." He said to the guard captain, raising a hand as he talked. "This can easily be sorted out no?" With that Roark unleashed a burst of his power, in an book one might say it was the equivalent of a stampede being funnelled into a tube the size of someone's head, in practice in meant that the unfortunate guardsman was sent flying backwards at such a speed that he had impacted with the stonework of the building across the harbour before spear that he had clutched had managed to stop clattering on the ground. The other guardsmen yelled in shock and raised their own weapons, pointing them at the pirate captain, he in response rose both hands in front of him and just to the sides, he hands made an unclenched fists as his fingers relaxed. "Well I did say it could be easily sorted. So can this." Here he splayed his fingers and a shock-wave emanated out from him, invisible and soundless until it made contact with the guardsmen, sending them- and one unfortunate fisherman trying to move to the other end of his stall- sprawling backwards like toys kicked over by an angered child, the fortunate ones were simply unconscious, the unlucky ones had broken bones or had been impaled by their comrades flying weapons in their short and ultimately doomed time in the air. Turning around Roark extended a hand and with a sound not too unlike wood striking leather an apple was suddenly propelled from a cart into his hand, he took a quick bite before gesturing down the street with it. "Shall we ladies?" He said amidst chunks of the red fruit.

“Of course. I'm always happy to help clean up anyone's wounds they get....even if they're not from battle.”

Starlight narrowed her eyes. “A battle is a battle, big or small.”

''And please, keep those thoughts to yourself. Remember, I can't always control what I hear. Do you want to stay here, or join me on a little hunting trip for breakfast?''

The neko’s smile turned into a smirk. “Perhaps you should learn to keep that blushing under check then, sweetcheeks.” She snickered, her tail swishing with amusement back and forth behind her. “As for that trip of yours… I guess I could-”

Before she could finish her sentence, the door clattered open. Starlight jumped to her feet in surprise, the fur on her tail bristling and standing on end.

“Ah good there you two are! You know its always a good day when you can find what you're looking for before either you or it knows its looked for.”

“Oh… Its just you, Captain. You gave me a heart attack…” Star collapsed back into her seat, but she discreetly tugged her shirt back down, covering up the wound on her arm. Grasping one edge of her cape, she pulled it over the partially bloody fabric of her sleeve. She prayed that he wouldn’t notice and ask questions.

“Now then ladies, step lively if you will and kindly separate. The rumours that you two will cause.”

Starlight’s grin quickly returned. “Please, my dear Captain, I believe we cause enough rumors for the ship to be entertained.” Her tone carried a bit of mischief, the rumbling purr at the end sealing the deal.

"We had best be getting a move on as it is, our latest benefactor wants us to pay her a visit and who am I to say no when a lady wants me to call? Come on then lass an' lass."

“Alrighty then. Yes sir.” Starlight hopped out of her chair, ready to march out the door, when Rubber turned around, flashing a wink in her direction that she was all too familiar with. Oh really? She thought quietly to herself, smirking.

Starlight silently walked behind him down the gangplank. Suddenly, her entire being grew tense. Her ears flattened to her pure white hair. Her lip curled up, flashing her fangs.

"You there halt! You are a wanted fugitive and will be coming along with us!"

Starlight scoffed, crossing her arms. She ignored the throbbing pain in her right arm and glanced over at Rubber. “Wow, I didn’t know I was that popular.”

"Now look here." He said to the guard captain, raising a hand as he talked. "This can easily be sorted out no?"

Starlight’s lips curled into a cruel grin. They’re so going to get it. She watched with both amazement and amusement as Rubber literally wiped the floor with the petty guards. Starlight had always found Rubber’s powers absolutely amazing despite the fact that he usually kept it to himself. Rubber was also one of the few people alive that knew of Starlight’s power over the element of light.

"Shall we ladies?"

“I think we shall.” Star hummed pleasantly, stepping off of the gangplank onto the dock. She made sure not to trip over any bodies as the trio made their way towards dry land. Star walked behind her captain, staring down at the ground.

"You know…" She started, biting down on her bottom lip. “You don’t have to be so discreet about… it.” Starlight spoke rather softly, feeling a warmth spreading through her cheeks until she was blush inf thuroughly. “I… You of all people should know that I like them bold.”

“S… so! Where are we headed?” Starlight asked, tilting her head to the side.
