  1. Utsawa slumped in his seat and soon let his armored form bleed away into the ether dissipating around him like smoke on the wind after the took off. He visibly winced at the selection of movie and closed his eyes leaning back in his seat and focused on the thrumming hum of the engines letting himself relax into the shake and roll of the plane as it weathered the turbulent winds of the storm. While he was aware of the Patriots nervous pacing and conversations with the pilots he paid little attention to them or the other movement about the cabin. Only as the film reached it's inevitable denouement did he murmur a curse in Japanese under his breath hissing, "Nobody cares you relic." in his native tongue barely audible above the sound of hte engines and storm outside. When the alarms blared and Patriot issued her orders to assume crash positions the young mans eyes snapped open and took in the chaos. His armor raced in blued flames to cover his body once more and he was halfway out of his seat heading for the emergency exit when Patrioteen arrived to extend the nanometal shield. He glanced to the fellow teen and then to the exit row once more and gritted his teeth, "Your toys best be up to the challenge." he growled as he strapped back in and assumed a crash position. The plants filling the compartment soon cut off any hope of egress to the dubious safety of the exterior of the plane regardless and he listened to the dueling voices of Sharafs prayers and his grandfathers ranting about ruining his vessel as eh waited for the inevitable impact.

  3. Utsawa nodded curt agreement with Jessie as she seemed to have gotten through to Ryder on a level he had failed to. Quickening his pace as well he stood tensely as they observed the displays of the squadron supreme and some of their foes, "He was more sorcerer than shinobi." he corrected almost automatically and quickly shrugged and moved on to the next room hoping no one asked for elaboration of his knowledge of ancient villains. The young man examined the exhibits in much the same way as Ryder, they were only slightly more familiar to him and certainly never presented in such a context in his learning prior to his arrival in the states. "Yes I too was unaware." he murmured distractedly as he eyed a familiar figure in one of the images before shaking his head at the sheer improbability if not impossibility of the resemblance being anything of meaning. The display had at least managed to distract him from the inevitability of a much more personal story likely to be included further into the exhibit.
  4. "Glad to hear Copycat is talking me up to the locals." Infinity replied patting her girlfriends hand comfortingly. "A pleasure to meet you as well Jill." she continued and stared blankly at Jacks assurance that the opulent penthouse wasn't in use for anything so debased as shelter. "So it is more a second home then?" she smiled to Talya having picked up at least some of the comfort with the location, "You must be quite successful in your endeavor's." she complimented politely. She took in the tales of the terrans exploits in and around Lor space with some recognition of the players if not the events themselves as Jack and Jill told their tales of valor. By the time they had finished Jolan had passed relevant if redacted data to her from the orbiting ship and she had a fuller comprehension of the interplays here. "Well I certainly understand now why Copycat suggested we meet that is quite august company to keep." She was a bit guarded, those were potent enough names that if these Terrans were owed favors and chose to her cushy assignment in her girlfriends sector could vanish in an instant. She paused a moment to consider how her own exploits might match up and what she was at liberty to share. "Well I'm new in the sector, working with the Star rangers, basically frontier law enforcement." she offered carefully. "Previously commissioned in the star navy and scout corps" she explained clearly expecting the connected individuals would understand the groups mentioned. "I've helped Copycat out with a situation or two locally but strictly off the books." she added with a laugh but did not elaborate.

  6. Kensei rolled his eyes barely visible between phantom helmet and mask but nodded at the instruction and silently and efficiently strapped himself in adjusting the harness to his frame with more experience with the military style rigging than any sixteen year old had right to know. "Not my first time." he said flatly as the Patriot approached to check his work. He glanced around at the others as they strapped in as well and glanced back at their cargo with a frown. "With the weight and distance a truck or convoy would make more sense." he surmised dryly, "Only reason to fly is because planes are harder to hijack, unless the pilots are compromised." he glanced toward the cockpit pensively but shook his head. "Probably just paranoia." he murmured somewhat tiredly leaning his head back against the side of hte plane as they taxied toward the runway, "Gonna get real loud when they gun it for take off." he warned the others and settled in for what would surely be an uneventful flight.
  7. "If you have an associate in ArcheTech I'm sure you can find a tailor as it were." he paused with a vague shrug glancing to Andromeda and Victoria for a moment, "If you were working with Danger Industries there likely would be budget for such as well." he posited noncommitally. He did not manage such contracts but it would hopefully stop Andromeda from fabricating the requested device from trace elements in the air. He smiled slightly at Davyds question as to Andi's origins and nodded, "She's a celestial body given humanoid form to explore and experience all the delights of earth." he answered fondly with a truth that certainly sounded like it must be a lie or at least polite exaggeration. "We'll send over any necessary paperwork for you and Saul to go over." Ace promised and even set a task in his wrist communicator to remind him to actually do so, or at least delegate the responsibility of doing so to some poor underling. "Glad we could offer some clarity to your pursuits and glad to meet one of Veronicas friends."
  8. "As you wish." Utsawa replied evenly his eyes locked on Owains every movement from the moment the challenge was issued. He held the weighted practice blade at his side straight along his leg and bowed slightly feet together gaze still fixed on is opponent, tradition without trust. He had faced boys of his age many times in similar circumstance, though with much higher stakes. As Erick spoke calling the bout to commence he took the hilt in hand and held the wooden sword as if sheathed at his belt, weight shifting to the balls of his feet his left foot drew a slow half circle in the mat as it glided along the surface coming to rest behind him in a balanced ready position. He remained their still and watching his opponent in an Iado stance familiar to those who knew the fighting style of the most infamous of those to bear the name Crimson Katana.
  9. "I thought I did that last night?" Fa'Rua replied to Ashley with a teasing smile as the door opened. She turned and offered a bright smile to Jack and Talya, "That one." she pointed Ash with a flat affect as if she'd missed the jest entirely though the façade quickly crumbled. "Pleasure to make your acquaintance, Jack, Talya." she replied readily, "Fa-erm Infinity." she stumbled slightly at the introductions it wasn't entirely clear if the locals were using their callsigns or not but settled on the less revelatory to be on the safe side. She took Ashleys hand as she followed the scintillating pair deeper into the apartment giving it a little squeeze as she looked around at the decor and view clearly a bit shocked at the opulence of it all.
  10. "Exaggerated I'm sure." Phalanx replied with a gentle smile aimed to put the young heroes at ease. "You carry a storied name yourself." he added with a nod to Freedom Eagle. Looking down at Heroditus he shook his head slightly and nodded to Geckoman, "I'm sure my friend here and myself are happy to offer whatever advice we can on your wonderous devices." he assured the young Atlantean confidently. "But we hope to offer primarily the benefits of experience with the responsibilities you both bear." he paused with glance to Geckoman, "This path is not always an easy one to tread, and doubt will creep in, doubt that unchecked could make you hesitate when you must act, or act too soon merely for the sake of taking action." He looked down solemnly at the last and let his words linger for a long moment to sink in.
  11. "Both Veronica and Davyd were students there until recently yes Andi." Ace replied slinging an arm across her shoulders and pulling her into a quick side hug, "But always best to be sure with such secrets yes." he reinforced with a nod, "Saul has been in the business long enough to know when to ask questions and more importantly when not to." He answered Davyd with a nod, "He can be eccentric but he is genuinely one of the good ones, last of a breed." Ace added almost solemnly. The display had Ace lean back appraisingly at the shapeshifting display and tapped his chin thoughtfully. "Hypercompression and morphic molecule design likely could manage." he posited with a shrug, "Of course I image when a creature of sufficient size you could mount it internally." he shrugged noncommittally, "Working with one of our subsidiaries I'm sure we could find suitable arrangements if you don't already have a tailor as it were."
  12. Through an act she categorized as a heroic level of will power Fa'Rua managed to avoid making them late by any significant margin. After some rummaging about her duffel she decided on the flight suit normally worn under her armor the Black and Purple geometry of the form fitting suit not unlike the standard spandex clad heroes of Freedom city and the mount points for the armored plates she'd left in her bag added high tech feel accentuated by the lavender visor band she added to keep in coms with her ship should it become necessary. Accessorizing with a basic survival belt more for aesthetic than utility though it did bear her badge as an official Star Ranger across the buckle. Finally adding a black synthetic leather longcoat it certainly took the look from space opera to sleek if campy cyberpunk aesthetic. "How'd I do?" she asked performing a little twirl for Ashley and leaning in for a quick kiss, "This is the place right?" She asked holding up a holomap of the city highlighting the place they were to meet. With confirmation there was a twisting sensation as space folded in on itself around them before they found themselves in a small alley down the block form the agreed meeting place, She may have been counting on the short commute making up for the slow start.
  13. Once the supers museum was mentioned Utsawa clenched his jaw slightly as he leaned back in his seat focusing more on tuning out the unhinged ranting the institution brought from his least favorite relative. He followed a few paces behind as they approached the famed edifice and grimaced at the headlining subject. With a pause of concentration he silenced his grandfather at least for the moment and tuned back into his surrounding in time to catch the trailing parts of Jessie and Ryders conversation. "Free will makes you unique." He replied flatly, "Regardless of what destiny or future some one puts on you, or how matched to another you are you still get to choose, even if it is the same choices it's you making the choice." the dour and usually taciturn teen expounded passionately. He let out a breath he hadn't realized he'd held and shrugged awkwardly, "We live in a world of clones, dimensional doubles, time travelers, and who knows how many brands of copycats and shapeshifters," Utsawa continued more sedately, "Even if some spirit or psychic robs you of that you can fight it and in the fight know you are you no matter what else."
  14. Ace flashed a bemused smile at Andromeda at the revelation certainly more amused than concerned. "I do recall the conversation." Ace acknowledged though he was internally relieved that Davyd seemed to have moved on. "I'll put word out to some old friends I imagine there are more than a few that would be interested in your talents." "You'll probably want to start with getting an agent." he suggested with a small shrug, "I would be remiss to suggest you negotiate on your own particularly with our own productions." he produced a dingy yellowed business card seemingly from nowhere that read, Saul Humberto, Starmaker with a phone and fax number as well as a local address in the parkside district. "Saul's one of the best." He assured Davyd with an easy grin. He was also enough of a talker that news would flow far and wide that the kid had the Danger families attention. Not the kind of thing that most alphabet soup agencies were interested in courting disaster with. He glanced at Veronica and his eyes lit up as an idea occurred to him, "Ah! I have it." he exclaimed excitedly. "You attended Claremont until recently." he verified but didn't wait on confirmation. "I'll have to speak to Rachel but there is a tricky interview that you may be singularly qualified for."
  15. Following the others off the bus he kept a wary eye on the perimeter apparently taking the potential of a threat seriously despite his early verbal sparing. He dropped an intense stare on the pilots but kept his distance knowing how disquieting his presence could be when fully armored. Standing alert apart form the others he waited on the Patriots further commands. He waited for the others to move into position drawing up the rear before joining the Patriot staring out from above the spectral mempo as he tried to judge if he was being held in reserve for combat or merely being babysat lest he snap and fall to his families familiar path of destruction. Deciding finally it didn't matter the reason he'd put in due diligence and watched from his perch as the others hefted the box and approached.
