DCDA Arrive on Tropic

Post by RKRobot on 9/29/2018, 7:48 am

~Tropic Space Port~

*the sounds of a Helion transport shuttle landing roars out as a small ship lands on the docks, its hatch opening as five figures walk out. The first was a young Iciaurian skunk of around 16 with a white, moppy mowhawk and a strange, silver metal arm for his left arm. He wore a simple black hoodie and jeans, as well as a black T-shirt reading "Dark Cosmos Detective Agency." He was playing on a handheld game system, and wasn't seeming to pay his surroundings much mind. Next to him was a tall, lean Necral with green punk spikes for hair, hus eyes covered by a single-band pair of sunglasses. He was shirtless save for a small vest, and hus body was covered in eye tattoos on each joint of his black, dead-skinned body. He wore punker shorts with a silver chain, an investigator badge haging from the chain loosely. The next two were a Fortesian female Knight with a large plume of red hair flowing from her dark green armored bodu, looking like a lion's mane, as well as a short, stout dragon with no wings, a bumpy body, and the demeanor of an overly-affectionate bulldog. Finally, the one seeming to lead the motley crew was a Celestian-Wondermold crossbreed with shaggy, brown hair, wearing a white bucket hat, a red and blue Hawaiian-style button shirt, cargo shorts, and sandals. On his belt, he appeared to have an ornate sword hilt with no blade strapped to his hip.*

Spirit: *the Celestian takes a deep breath, smiling as he looks up at the bright Tropic sky* Ah, this place is great! I love that warm Tropic weather!

Caesar: *the dragon barks loudly, his tail wagging happily as he looks to the Fortesian and hops up on his hind legs, standing and covering her in licks and kisses*

Kari: *the Fortesian laughs, playfully hugging the dragon before pushing it away gently* Calm down, Caesar, you big oaf!~

Bonesaw: *the necral looks over at the skunk's game screen, scowling slightly* Oi...Alex. How about you take your head outta the video game? We got a job to do!

Alex: *his reply is short and sharp* Bite me, Corpse-breath.

Bonesaw: *he growls angrily* Why you little-

Spirit: Hey, c'mon, guys! Like Bonesaw said, we're here on business, not pleasure. Lets focus on the task at hand; recovering this ancient stone tome that got stolen. Apparently, the perp used some old, powerful Warlock arts, and the Uniforce members here said they needed people with mystic know-how. So, here we are...now, we're supposed to be meeting the "Kaos Sisters" somewhere around here...




~Tropic Space Port: Entrance~

*Several tuxedo-wearing Koko marched down the hall of the Tropican International Space Port, their talons clicking on the concrete floor.  Each of the avains wore belts with security equipment strapped to it, and their colorful feathered heads were decorated with headsets and dark tinted sunglasses.  Two beings stood in the middle of the clump of Koko, one short and thin, the other tall and stocky.*

*The shorter one was blonde with cloudy blue eyes.  She wore a blue jumper with black leggings and white gloves.  Her short boots had small heels, but they didn’t help her compared to her sister.*

Tori: *her arms hanging low, sighs* After all that boring explaining the Chief did, I’m still really confused...

*Her sibling, donned in a blue long-sleeve dress, white gloves and black belt with a gold buckle, rolled her red-brown eyes at her sister’s comment.  Her gray sneakers squeaked a little as they walked compared to all the clicking going on.*

Rocky: What’s there to be confused about?  There’s been some mysterious incidents occuring around the world lately and the Koko Army want answers.

Tori: Then hire some investigators.

Rocky: We did... squints at her snarky reply But its nothing like they’ve ever seen!  So since we resigned that Treaty last month, our specialized team agreed to bring in some “outside help”.

Tori: You don’t have to be sassy about it.  *puts hands on her hips*

Rocky: You’re just cranky because you’re tired.  *smirks*

Tori: So?! *pouts*  Hey, look, I see somebody!  More somebodies!

Rocky: It’s them!  And the one we met last time... he’s here too!  I’m glad they made it safe!

*The Koko security staff spread farther apart so the girls could step forward.  Rocky was eager to meet them, but tried to hold back her hype.  Tori smiled and flashed a greeting wave.  She was secretly intrigued by their appearances.*




Spirit: *upon seeing the sisters as well as their regimine of Koko guards, he smiles and waves back* There they are! Those are them!

Alex: *he looks up from his video game, a glazed and uninterested expression on his face* Those are Tropic's mightiest heroes? They look like normal girls...humans, even!

Bonesaw: *he chuckles, his knuckles cracking as he rolls his hand around in a stretching motion* Wonder what kind of magic they use?...

Spirit: None. They rely on technology, not magic here on Tropic. Magic is honestly very rare here, with the exception of basic shamanism and religious powers granted by "The Sky King", the Tropican Prime God.

Kari: *her eyeholes glow a warm green color, showing her admiration for Spirit's knowledge* Gee, Captain, you sure do know your stuff!

Spirit: *he blushes from slight embarrassment* W-Well, I did my thesis paper back at the College of Avalon on Tropican Sorcery...one of my favorite heroes of old to study was Samazurae, the Aura Wake healer that put Tropican Magic on the map. *as they finally come face to face with the two cyborg-girls, Spirit nods happily to Rocky, smiling warmly Rocky* good to see you again! Sorry I haven't been in touch with the rest of Uniforce lately. You know, a Mystic detective's work is never done.~

Bonesaw: That, and you have the social skills of an angry magma drake with a hernia, and too much talking to new people tends to wear on you. *he chuckles at his own jape, only to have Kari belt him comically upside the head*

Caesar: *the dragon gives the sisters a big, goofy grin as he lets out a low, playful bark. He then waddles right up to Tori and rises onto his hind legs, giving her a massive, affectionate lick so forceful it would knock a stable Frostguardian Soldier on their rear*

Kari: Oh my goodness, looks like Caesar likes you!~




Rocky: *bows deeply before them* Sakashikou ko tska Puranekt Tropik!  Welcome to Planet Tropic!

Tori: *chuckles, muttering* show off~

Rocky: Don’t worry about the lack of contact, we’re pretty far out in the Mosaic Cloud, anyway!  I suspect very few people to come instantaneously.  *she pauses recalling Genesis being the only one to teleport out of her new intergalactic allies*

Tori: *she laughs at Bonesaw’s comment before being licked to the ground by Ceasar* Ahh!!  Whoa!!  Hahaha, good little-err, big dragon creature!!  Did you restore this being from fossilized material, too? *asking Kari, petting Ceasar*

Rocky: Not everyone was resurrected from death like our friend Kane, Tori.  *ahem* Thanks again for coming, everyone.  My name is Rocky, and this is my sibling and partner, Tori!  We’ve been experiencing a lot of trouble emanating from various parts of Crystopoli and Phoenix.

*she pulls up a digital tablet she kept at her side and turned it out towards the team.  There was a big map of Tropic with two glowing red areas where there was strange activity.  The north pole, Crystopoli, and the Equatorial island in the south, Phoenix, were the most obvious.*

Rocky: *points to Gadgetria, a large continent in between both locations* So, if we’re here, which location would you like to target first?




Spirit: *he politely inclines his head to Tori in greetings* Aura embrace you both, and well met. My name is Spiritu Desudari, or Spirit for short. These are my friends and investigative team; Alex Law, Bonesaw Jeckeljaques, Kari Bruun, and Kari's animal partner, Caesar. Now then, let's have a look at that map...*he eyes the map closely before motioning to Kari* Kari, bring me the drive with the case file on it.

Kari: *reaching into her pack that she kept on her side, she retrieves a small, square drive and hands it to Spirit*

Spirit: *he attaches the drive to the pad, causing the box to light up and a 3d hologram of the planet to spring out* According to our collective data, we're definitely dealing with something Infernal in origin. *he points to the two specified locations, both of which were glowing a neon green color* Look at this....Infernal energy lighting up the pole and this island like fireworks on Founder's Day....

Alex: *he puts the game in his pocket, now seemingly interested* Do you think its another Law Warlock?

Spirit: *he seems to be deep in thought on the matter* Hard to tell...The only thing I'm worried about with that theory is why would a Law Warlock come out here? There's practically nothing out here for a Warlock to want...*he then snaps his fingers* Perhaps examining any info on the artifact that was reported stolen might help us discern a motive? *he looks to Rocky* Sorry for jumping into business straight away, but would you girls mind showing us to the Archeological Society's headquarters? The info we need should be there. In the meantime, Alex, you and Tori go back to the ship and have Lugo analyze the map and cross-reference it with energy patterns from the past few days. Then, we can determine what place was hit first, and that will give us a starting point.

Bonesaw: *he looks over to Tori, smirking slightly* You kids have fun now.~

Let's Recap What We Know

Post by RKRobot on 9/29/2018, 8:35 am

~Meanwhile, in an abandoned warehouse outside Phoenix~

???: *a single, youthful Iciaurian skunk is kneeling before a large, glowing green mass of hellfire. In it, the image of a humanoid being with a masculine, human-like form can be seen floating, listening to the Skunk's report* ...and soon, I will move on into the town and begin the Reclamation ritual. Everything is going exactly as you planned, Master...soon, the dream of our forefathers will be realized...a perfect world, pure and free of mortal corruption.

Figure: *its glowing green eyes narrow happily* Well done, Knives...Well done. Once you arrive to the Reclamation site, begin the ritual and bring back the Left and Right Hands. With their aid, finding the Voice and Eyes will be much easier. But, use caution...Uniforce will no doubt be on the prowl.

Knives: *his eyes flash with green light, alluding to him possessing some sort of power that he was concealing* I fear no heroes...especially Wake Souls with no magic...




*Rocky and Tori are watching the glowing globe hologram, as the detective agency shed some light on their hunches and ideas.*

Rocky: *snapping out of thought with a jolt* Yes, Spirit? Right, yes, I’ll take you there. Tori, will you be okay with this? *concern in her voice, as she hands her the tablet*

Tori: You worry too much. *takes the tablet greedily* If we can straighten out a timeline on this thing, maybe we’ll figure out if you guys need to get out your snowshoes or your sandals! Hahaha! *she side-eyes Bonesaw for his comment, and sticks her tongue out at him for a moment as she walks with Alex back to their ship*

Rocky: Sorry for her attitude, she’s just cranky. Anyway, let’s get going!

*Rocky waves on the others and the Koko security staff split into 2 groups. One small group stayed behind to protect Tori, the other moved behind Rocky and her guests.*

Rocky: The Archeological Society’s HQ is a little bit away, but we can take the train! It’s very fast, so it should only take a half an hour.




~Team Rocky~

Spirit: *he follows Rocky pleasantly, with Bonesaw bringing up the rear.* The fact Tropic is so advanced without the use of Sorcery is so amazing! Tell me, how does the train move? Magnetic induction? Or perhaps jet power?

Bonesaw: *he shakes his head, sighing* You and your hobbies...Seriously, though, this place should invest in some Temporal Warp Gates or something...

Spirit: Bonesaw, remember, Helion Mysto-Tech is restricted to Helion Space only. The cultures outside Helion aren't as mystically inclined as the ones inside the Axis. Little by little, the galaxy will get more balanced and Magic and Technology will catch up with one another.

Bonesaw: *as he talks, the entourage approaches the train terminal. The Necral rants on, despite his surroundings* The Mystic Revolution attempted that what, couple hundred years ago? Yeah, that was supposed to be a golden age. Look what happened then! Whole galaxy nearly shatters, after being invaded by the Fortesians, mind you, and Helion introduces the Mysto-Tech Restriction Act that ends the whole thing! I say the Act was a huge waste! The Revolution should never have ended!

Spirit: *he sighs and looks to Rocky as they begin to board the train* I apologize for my brash colleague....he and I are former Wake Team graduates, and he's always been a fan of the Golden Age of the Mystic Revolution...

Bonesaw: *he takes off his sunglasses, staring off into the distance with listful, practically glowing, neon blue eyes* High General Marrowrend went to school in that age... though he never talks about it, I bet he was a freaking monster! *he then looks to Spirit, annoyed by the way he was being talked to* And as for you, don't act like you don't have ties to that age! You're a freaking Desudari! A relative to Neir of Yggdrasil! You got the same blood as him! Plus, Arch Mage Katarina adopted your sorry ass! She, General Heinrich, and that old Law asshole, Mercer, are the only known beings still kicking from that age!

Spirit: That "Old Law asshole" happens to be the Grand Patriarch of their clan... and Alex's ancestor... might wanna show some respect?

Bonesaw: *he snorts looking to Rocky* The point I'm making is, this place could benefit from some Mysto-Tech. Right, dollface?~

Spirit: *he groans. Bonesaw's boorishness was something else..*


~Team Tori~

*on the ship, Alex and Tori were both looking over the hologram of the planet while sitting at a large table in the ship common room. Next to Alex, a small, pink, blob-like humanoid no bigger than a plastic solo cup was dancing to what appeared to be upbeat jazz music that was playing in the background*

Lugo: *the little blob was shuffling and bouncing, chuckling as she sang along with the music* "You're 'bout to lose control when the rubber band starts to jam!~" Haha, I love this song!~

Alex: *he glares right at the north pole* Here...I can see the energy signature fading slightly around the outer edges...meanwhile, the signature on Phoenix is persisting at a consistent rate...whoever this guy is, he went to the Pole first, and has moved on to Phoenix....But the question is, why the North Pole?...*he looks over to Tori* Were there any reports of ruins or perhaps dig sites at the North Pole? If so, then we might be able to give Spirit and Rocky more of a lead to go on.

Kari: *she suddenly enters the common room with mugs filled with hot tea, a glow of warmth coming from her armored form* Here, I thought you two could use something to help keep the mind sharp!~

Alex: *he continues staring at the hologram while he takes the tea* This energy...it's definitely Infernal. That means it almost has to be a Law Warlock...but why? Why would a Law break the Warlock cardinal rule and use his power to steal?...and just who would be this self-serving that they would take a power taught for protection and use it for evil?...




~Team Rocky~

Rocky: *beams, excited someone is interested in tech as much as she was* Our trains are amazing! They were first used with rocket fuel, and for a long time, ancient people called them literally “ground rockets”, but they were really dangerous. Nowadays, we have 2 types: Hydrotrains that allow us to travel to different continents under the water, and Crusttrains, which are simple magnetic-levitation cars that move under the ground! We still employ live beings as conductors, as opposed to robotic AI, since we have a strict ban on—

*she stops talking listening to Bonesaw gets a little overzealous with his explanation of the Mystic Revolution. She’d never heard of it, but she was still concerned with the apparent tragic results that occured after it. There were a lot of mysterious things on Tropic that she could easily theorize were of the Helion sector of the galaxy, but she only knew of one being.*

Rocky: Well... *winces at his dollface comment* It could I guess, but we’ve fought for eons about already! Not necessarily Mysto-Tech, but I wouldn’t be surprised if your people brought up something similar to Tropic at our next Meeting of the Worlds. There might be more secrets than either of our worlds are willing to divulge...

*The group then arrives at the station, and the Koko Security squad speaks with the conductor and car operators for a moment. Without much deliberation, the group is escorted onto the spacious train car. It's not luxurious, but its comfortable with soft seats lining the sides.*

~Team Tori~

Tori: *raises her eyebrows at Lugo, half in disgust* Whoa. You guys really are aliens. At least they have good taste in music.

*Tori licks her lips as Kari enters to give them tea. She gratefully accepts the mug, drinks from it after blowing on its hot surface, and then elaborates on what she knows.*

Tori: Rocky and I are always on the move. Since we go from one crime to the next, we try to forget what happens between locations so it doesn’t mess with the next job. But lately, all our jobs have been following a pattern of escalating violence... It started with petty theft of some library books, then a boat was stolen, which was actually some guy’s house... followed by a series of attempted murders, and finally a violation of protected indigenous grounds was the last one we dealt with. That was here in Gadgetria, which is why we arrived so quickly. There was a lot of terrorism and vandalism along the way, but no one else thinks any of these crimes were connected. Only a few people, including me and my sister... I can understand why someone would go to Crystopoli first... there’s a high level of magnetic energy in the air, the water is pure when it melts from the ice, there aren’t that many people living up there... and it's very dark or very light, depending on the time of day! Phoenix, yeah, anyone with a desire for the planet’s natural blood- er, Chemical Chaos, our primary source of fuel - would absolutely go there. It’s liquid energy. It’s clean, too, and doesn’t pollute our world as much as methane gas or anything else we use... So if your Law Warlock guy is really determined to gather power and resources, on this world not only does he have all these elements at his disposal, but he has an entire world to hide in after he stole that one guy’s house-boat! Once we find him, we’re totally gonna arrest him - we have fingerprints and hair samples from his previous scuffles. *takes another sip* Yeah, Tropic isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. There’s a lot of nasty things going on out there... mutters part of me wishes I was a normal 12 year old...




~Team Tori~

Alex: *he nods, seeming to understand where Tori was coming from* I know how you feel. I'm not exactly a normal 16 year old. *he holds up his silver arm to show Tori* See this? It's called a Blessing of Deus. Essentially, my family's blood is mixed with the remnants of an ancient Helion god called Deus, the thing the Faith worships. Because of that, I was born with this arm. Normally, that would be viewed as a good thing...except both my parents and my older brother are Law Warlocks. Holy and Infernal....never mix well. However, that didn't stop a cult of Demon-Worshippers called the Sons of The War Devil from kidnapping me and forcing me to absorb a Demon.... *his right eye sparks with green energy, showing his Infernal side* But....I'm glad Spirit was the one who found me. He and Bonesaw, they saved me from those freaks...took me under their wing, got me a scholarship with The College of Avalon, and then took me in as an apprentice detective. *suddenly, his eyes widen* Wait....the town of Phoenix...how densely populated is it?! Lugo, scan for recent surges in demonic energy activity in and around the city!


~Team Rocky~

Spirit: *he nods, smirking to Rocky wistfully* Maybe. I do know there are many in Helion that wish for a second chance at an age like the Mystic Revolution...that because so much time has passed, all the old wounds have scarred over enough that a sharing of knowledge and technology would benefit all...I just wish my brother, Hades saw it that way...

Bonesaw: Spirit's older brother....Hades, one of the four Great Generals of the Helion Axis...those four hold all the power in the Axis. If they don't want another Revolution, it ain't gonna happen....

Spirit: *he looks outside the train window, spotting a cargo transport ship carrying canisters of strange liquid material. He suddenly exclaims, remembering a question he had* Oh, that reminds me! I've been wondering, Rocky...how difficult is it to procure the substance called "Chemical Chaos"? One of our leads on our way here mentioned that there has been a surge of it going into Helion's black market. The reason I bring this up...is because I hear it is a liquid form of pure energy. If that is the case, our perp may try using it in his schemes. Such a versatile fuel could definitely be used to terrifying effect if this guy is as dangerous as we anticipate.




~Team Tori~

Tori: *smiles as she sips another time from her drink* I had a feeling you and I weren't so different. *she listens to his tale and nods in understanding, glad that he was using his power for good rather than evil. She was really surprised when he revealed he was highly educated! When he whips around to Lugo and asks about the population, Tori's pupils shrink* Oh Sky King- that's a big Continent! Here, lemme show you! *she puts the tablet her sister gave her onto a docking station next to Lugo, takes a chord she finds and plugs it into the tablet. On a new holographic screen, the map of Tropic unfolds to the picture shown. Tori keys in a few commands before stepping back and showing Alex* Here, the red outlined areas are where the largest for both continents are located. It's a generalization, but it's what this thing can show us. The pink parts are where Crystopoli's and Phoenix's 'blood vessels' are. They're the largest extraction points of the Chemical Chaos in those areas. There's other places, but we're not worried about them now! What do you think? Would he target a big city or a smaller one for whatever he might be doing?!

~Team Rocky~

Rocky: *gently puts her hand on Spirit's forearm* If you believe there's hope, then I will be there to hope for the best with you. It's one of the reasons why I take the role I have today - to share that same hope for our future. Hades can either change his reasoning... or he will be forced out of our way - that is, if a Revolution would be effective! We don't want senseless violence! Heh! *takes her hand back to rub the back of her neck, a bead of sweat dripping down her cheek, nervously*

*Rocky looks over at the cargo ship, turning back to Spirit and Bonesaw to explain*

Rocky: Chemical Chaos is our planet's core. It's the hot, molten substance that allows our world to not only survive in the vastness of space, but it keeps the life here, alive. We use it in everything, even though it is a precious commodity. It's very expensive to trade on our own surfaces, and those that have it in their grasp must have license to use it. Farmers use it for higher crop yields and doctors use it for medicine. Other than the sun and water, it also powers many vehicles... and myself. *she gestures to herself* However, containing it is easy. Anyone with a strong glass vial or bottle can easily maintain its liquid form. It does not evaporate quickly, which is why it stays liquid on such a hot world for so long. It cannot be frozen by anything less than liquid nitrogen-temperatures. *she pauses to think about something, before looking down and furrowing her brows in anger* We bust a lot of Chemical Labs without proper safety equipment or licenses. There's no way those crooks in the Helion black market traded that stuff fairly. They'd have to fork over at least 5,000 for a pint of it, and that's just the starting rate here on our world!

((Chemical Chaos moves and looks like it would be pink Gallium or Mercury!))




Team Tori

Alex: he begins going over the data hastily Law Warlock Arts generally require two things as prices...either you bond with a Demon to gain power....or....you offer up life force as fuel....and the only way to offer up life force as fuel is to sacrifice living people. Have there been missing persons spiking up since his arrival to Tropic? If so...then he's already started whatever he's planning. as Lugo sends him more and more data on the holographic screen he was looking at, his face becomes more and more frantic, before he finally stops scrolling, staring in horror at the screen No doubt about it...the way these energy spikes coincide with these missing person's reports from the areas...one...two...He's killed more than a dozen people by now...we're dealing with a guy that has at least a dozen living, breathing Infernal demons working with him as lackies....*he looks to Tori, his face serious* We need to do something. From what I can tell, he's probably still in the southmost section of Phoenix, in a place where there is a dense and vast collection of people. The larger the herd, the less of a chance the flock notices when one of their own goes missing to the wolves. This guy will be hiding in plain sight. I'll send the data to Spirit, but I think you, me, and Kari should do something while we can. At least try to establish a suspect in the area.

Kari: Its dangerous, Alex...*her voice held legitimate concern and an air of experience* Demons don't go down easy. I've emptied entire Energon Clips into one before and it didn't even stagger. Plus, your data has already established it, this guy is incredibly dangerous. He's killed at least a dozen people from here, and Deus knows how many more back in Helion!

Alex: using the holo screen, he sends the data to Spirit's personal device, hoping the message reaches his mentor in time Still, we can't just sit by and do nothing...

Team Rocky

Spirit: I see...*his face seems to ripple like water slightly as he gains a troubled look* That makes this all the more difficult....if it can be that easily contained here, then our perp could have a large stockpile by now. If thats the case, we should be prepared for anything from dangrous magic powered by the stuff, to possible improvised explosive devices. Back in Helion, this guy used such a tactic, and blew up a large portion of Rapture's Black Crypt Library to maoe his escape. The perp used a Demonic Seal attached to an improvised cannister containing multiple alien ingredients...one of which tested positive for Chemical Chaos. Now, taking what we both know from our respective cases, I'm positive you Kaos Sisters and us here with Dark Cosmos Detective Agency are, indeed after the same perp. Knowing this, he'll probably be hiding in places where large amounts of Chemical Chaos would be, so it would be easier to siphon more for his plans. suddenly, an old-sounding robotic voice rings out the phrase "You got Mail!" from Spirit's pocket Ah, that must be Alex and Tori with the data! he reaches into his pocket and takes out what appears to be a small silver square no bigger than a zippo lighter. He presses the side and suddenly a small holo screen pops up before his eyes. As he reads the data, his face becomes more and more troubled Oh dear...

Bonesaw: Oh great...You don't get that look unless either A.) I have Caesar shit in your cereal, or B.) You just found out something that made this case a million times harder.

Spirit: he then grabs both sides of the screen and pulls, making two copies of it and handing one each to Bonesaw and Rocky, showing them the data Alex had collected As you can see, Bonesaw...you aren't wrong.

Bonesaw: Oh fuck...twelve people. Four of them are innocent kids. Thats some heavy demonic shit right there. This guy is beyond fucked up, whoever he is...

Spirit: All the more reason to find out what those artifacts that were stolen by him actually were. If we can get a motive fully established, then we can jump to the next phase...tracking this guy down and bringing him to justice.




~Team Tori~

Tori: A sacrifice?! *nods* Missing people happen daily, and we can only help a handful of them. Otherwise, it's up to the local governments to help stop abductions...

*Tori’s blue eyes lose their bright azure color as she turns around and paces behind Alex as he tells her this Warlock has offed a dozen or more innocent beings. Her first instinct was to alert the cities in Phoenix, but that could scare them away. Even Kari was worried about the chances of stopping all 13 beings...*

Tori: *holds breath for a few seconds, trying to calm down and not start sparking out of frustration* Okay! We need to go to 3 cities in Phoenix! Minarr is a poor mining town, Harszk is a rich tourist hub and Jhekh is basically middle-class suburbia. All of those places are really populated. We can get there by plane, by Hydrotrain or by boat. Does this murderous monster have any way of detecting high levels of Life Force Energy? If not, he can’t see us coming. If so... we’re fudged no matter how we travel. Either way, I think Minarr is a good place to start.

~Team Rocky~

Rocky: Blew up a library?! So... that’s how you guys knew to come here. We did have something enter the atmosphere a month ago, but by the time we looked for it, it was gone.

*Rocky waited for Spirit to break the news, and once he shared it with her and Bonesaw, she clapped her hands over her mouth.*

Rocky: My people... I couldn’t stop him in time... There’s no way this is Kannibal, or just a lucky serial killer... This is... I will never be able to heal their suffering... *flashes back to seeing Wrath’s face smiling* It’s not... it’s not bad enough yet for him to come back... *wipes tears from her eyes* There’s still time.

Loudspeaker: Attention Passengers! We have arrived in Janlak City. Please depart the car after picking up all your belongings. Thank you for riding with us today. *click*

Rocky: I’ll take you to the Museum now... *leaves the car, her face caught between sadness and anger*




~Team Rocky~

Spirit: *as the group heads out of the station and out towards the museum, he watches Rocky as his eyes flash with concern. Because of his Wondermold heritage, Spirit was naturally empathic, and could feel the rage and despair Rocky felt. It was one of the reasons he became a Detective...to help people feeling these exact emotions. He walks forward and places a reassuring hand on Rocky's shoulder, smirking and nodding to her* We'll find this guy. And he will pay for his crimes. I promise, we will bring this sick bastard down.

Bonesaw: *he smiles a large grin and nods* For once, I agree with Spirit here. *he holds his hand up in a "rock on" sign while smiling wide, his green tongue sticking out and showing the black eye tattoo on it* No way this guy can get away if all of us are on his ass!~

*on the roof of the station, two figures watched the Detectives and Rocky exit with their group of Koko security. One was a thin, black-armored Fortesian with black scarves wrapped around his neck, arms, and legs. The other was a Pauli with dark purple feathers and black scales and a short but muscular build. The Pauli was dressed in a black turtleneck sweater and suit coat with matching pants and shoes. Giving him a refined air.*

Fortesian: *the fortesian holds up a green crystal, speaking into it as his head's eye holes glow dark green* Hey, we have company....it's that annoying detective from Helion. He's teamed up with the Kaos sisters, and is heading towards the museum now. He might have picked up our trail...

Knives: *the voice of the skunk-warlock echoes back through the crystal* ....is the boy with him, Ganji?

Ganji: ...no...it's only the older Kaos sister and the Necral. The boy must be back at the ship with the Fortesian and the younger sister...both groups have some Koko cannon fodder...nothing too troubling.

Knives: ....kill him. Let him find out what he wants, but kill him before he leaves that city. The girl and the Necral, too. You have six Cacklers and a that monstrosity at your disposal....Ganji, Tarmiel...do not fail me.

Tarmiel: *the Pauli's voice is gruff and low, like he was much older than he appeared* We Are Obedient Sons...

Ganji: We Are Obedient Sons...

Knives: ....We Are Obedient Sons...May our lord and Father return...I will soon begin the Reclamation ritual. Contact Malcom and have him deal with the others...

Raphael: ...How many do we have now, Knives? The Master has been busy, I hear...

Knives: ....*his voice seems to take on a maniacal chuckle as he answers* 36 demons are among our ranks on that planet, as well as the four of us. Everything is going as The Master planned...


~Team Tori~

Alex: *he nods* Lugo, send word to Spirit that we're moving ahead. *he then nods to Tori* Lead the way...as for detection, the only way he would see us coming is if he knew a Half Demon was on his tail and had a means to use Soul Sight...*his eyes ignite with green flames* Soul Sight is an ability exclusive to Demons and Half-Demons. It lets them peer into souls, and see a person for their true essence. Some are so powerful, they can read emotions, even thoughts. A Warlock can borrow this ability if they have a Demon partner temporarily. So, we should try to keep a low profile.

Kari: Low profile...still, I'm going to need some spicy stuff if I'm going to be staring down Demons... *the Fortesian walks over to a large white cabinet-like container in the common room and places her hand on the center of the door. A seal forms around the spot and the cabinet opens, expanding and unfolding to reveal a massive arsenal of Mysto-tech weaponry of all shapes and sizes* Lets see...Oh! I KNOW! THE "CJM Harkonen Mark 95" Energon Railgun...aaaaand two "Surtur Cerberus" anti-material pistols in case I need medium range...*finally, she grabs a massive hammer that appears to be made with two massive tesla coil-like ends* My baby...I call this one "Mama's Lil' Helper"...*her eyes light up intensely* So many Brood have fallen to this thing...

Alex: *he chuckles nervously* See, Kari used to be Helion Military. Since the Fortesian Integration and the creation of New Echidna, their home cloud in the Helion System, the Fortesians became a major asset to the Helion Military for their expertise in warfare, both mystic and technological. Kari retired when she was found heavily injured on a recon mission...but when they found her, her kill count against the Brood was well in the hundreds. The Brood are a race of massive, vile insects from a system outside Mosaic. The Helion Axis has been keeping them out of Mosaic with their war line in the west. Most people on that line don't make it out...

Kari: *she looks over to the two youngsters, glowing warmly, as if her switch was flipped back to "doting teammate"* But I did!~ So don't you guys worry about a thing!~

Let's Search For Clues!

Post by RKRobot on 9/29/2018, 8:58 am

Team Rocky

Rocky: *smiles lightly and nods, but does not say anything in response*

*The Museum is huge, filled to the brim with all kinds of beautiful and well-taken-care-of exhibits. The glint of sparkling statues and replicas and the smell of old books were to the left. Straight ahead there was a flight of stairs was marked with a sign talking about the 4 floors above this one. There's a door with a stairwell going down to the right of the admissions counter, and the Koko staff talk to the desk clerk. The clerk opens the locked door and the staff allows the three team members to head down into the underground laboratory.*

*Inside the Archeological Research Facility, many uniformed humans, Koko and anthropomorphic beings examined all kinds of things in the glass rooms they occupied. Many of the analysts wore goggles, gloves and carried a basket of tools used to help identify what they were looking at. The trio and their security team came down five rooms and turned right into an empty one. A large pristine table held up books, scrolls and electronic tablets all about information that might be helpful to this investigation. Rocky thanked the Koko staff and they left the trio to their work, but stayed outside the door.*

Rocky: We can use these, but if we need more, we'll have to bug our friends, the guards. They called ahead and had the teams here pull a lot of different but hopefully relevant information. Detectives, now's your chance! *she again, lightly smiles*


~Team Tori~

Tori: We can easily disguise ourselves among the crowds. Minarr is close to Harszk, so we can easily pull off the 'lost tourist' route. I'll just have to change up my clothes and hair so no one recognizes me. Alex, I guess we'll have to rely interrogation instead of using that Soul Sight of yours. Just in case. *shrugs*

*When Kari opens the cabinet, Tori is shocked, yet awed by Kari's infatuation with her colorful array of weaponry*

Tori: That's amazing, Kari! Rocky and I are used to getting up close and personal with our foes, with me occasionally using some long-range lighting throws~ I'd like to be more efficient and try to learn some new techniques, so observing how a professional sharpshooter works will be really informative! *she gets excited about learning new things, but then stops* But that means, if we're gonna shoot these demon-things... there's no possible way we can turn them back into the lives that were lost huh?




~Team Rocky~

Spirit: *he cracks his knuckles and licks his lips eagerly, ready to work* Alright. Bonesaw, you and Rocky try looking through the report about the artifact's excavation. I want a list of all personnel that were there. I'll take a look at the artifact itself's digital images and try to make heads or tails of what we're dealing with. With luck, I'll be able to translate it...

Bonesaw: *he raises an eyebrow* Aaaaaand if you can't?

Spirit: Then I call up a little outside expert opinion... I know a guy.

Bonesaw: *he groans loudly, throwing his hands to his sides* Not THAT chut....dude, I hope you don't mean that four-eyed richie dork!

Spirit: *his face ripples slightly in anger* That richie dork is one of my best friends... I suggest you shut up. Now, let's get to work! *he walks over to the table and cycles through one of the tablets until he finds the images he was seeking*

Bonesaw: *he shakes his head and sighs, walking over to the table as he immediately starts looking through the records of the dig*


~Team Tori~

Kari: *she falls silent upon hearing Tori's question, setting the hammer down gently*

Alex: *his face remains hard. However, it was clear there was pain there* Tori... when a person's soul is sacrificed to summon a Demon from Inferno, that person not only dies... their soul is burned away as fuel for the spell. There is nothing left of the sacrifice... the only thing we can do is take down the Demons, before they can kill and devour any more innocent souls... *he clenches his silver hand, looking to Kari* Ready to go?

Kari: *she nods* Caesar will be a big help, too. If we can find something related to the perp, then Caesar can find him by his scent. An Echidna Stone Drake has the strongest sense of smell out of any living creature in Mosaic!~ Caaaaaeeeeeeesaaaaar!~

Caesar: *the drake comes barreling down one of the ship's halls, barking happily as he nearly tackles Kari, a smile on his lumpy, scaly face* Bwoark! Bwoark!

Kari: *the Fortesian laughs heartily as she hugs her drake* Ooooooh who's a good boy?~ YOU ARE! YUSH YOU ARE!~ *she rubs his massive neck and chin lovingly, taking his big paws and dancing cutely with him while she sang* Oh, I'm a little drakey, always waddling too and fro!~ I always eat my feedies be-cause they help me grow!~ Some-day, I'll be so big and strong, I'll never have to fear!~ But, for now, I'm a little drakey who is ti-cklish un-der heeeeeeeeeere!~ *she tickles him right under his left head spike, causing the drake to bark and, surprisingly, laugh! The drake rolls on the ground as Kari rubs its tummy playfully*




~Team Rocky~

*Rocky pulls up a binder of the latest dig site reports from around the world. She notices that two of the most recent entries have been about objects that, when found, "gave us genuine chills as we unearthed the artifacts." Rocky kept reading, as this sounded a lot like 'demon-like' pieces to a larger puzzle. The report explained they were donated to museums in both Phoenix and Crystopoli, where they were originally found.*

Rocky: That must have been where our perp got them. That must've been too easy. *she continues to pick up a journal from one of the archaeological team, based on the names she pulled from the binder* There's this guy, a Koko named Shrika, he worked on this project. He lives in southern Crystopoli, in a town called Laknie. According to this journal... *skims through some pages* He might be able to help us. Maybe we can video phone him... Did you guys find anything?


~Team Tori~

Tori: That's unfair... *she balls a fist in frustration, but looks up with determination* But I'm going to send him back to the scum ponds he crawled out of, because there's no way I'm letting him near my home country!

*Tori watches Kari and Caesar play together loosening up her grip on her own fist. She goes over to the dragon and his friend, crouching beside them and admiring their bond*

Tori: My sister doesn't think I care about anything sometimes, just by how I act in battle or when we talk about things later on at home... but this... *gestures to them* is why I care. Someday I wanna be normal and have a normal life, and I care about making sure I make it that far and keeping it safe for my future. *gets up* I'm ready to go.




~Team Rocky~

Bonesaw: *he is using his own silver holo-projector to skim through notes while he reads about the area of the sites themselves* I'm cross-referencing the ruins themselves with known ruins from around Mosaic to see if it might be something we can go on... these things definitely aren't native Tropic, thats for sure. *he stops, his jaw slightly agape* These hieroglyphs from one of the obelisks at the site... its a direct match. These are ruins from the Burning Age, an age where Infernals literally walked in and out of Mosaic like it was nothing. This PRE-DATES the MIW! But... the artifacts found at the sites don't match up... Spirit, are you reading this?!

Spirit: *he nods as he skims the pad and his own holo-screen* The artifacts are a lot younger... Mystic Revolution-age. I think we need to pay the good professor a call. Besides, I need to go back to translating... or, at least trying. This Infernal... I'm terrible at it, honestly. I actually flunked out of my demonic studies course...

Bonesaw: *he groans* Oh great...So you're calling HIM...

Spirit: *He rolls his eyes* After we contact this Shrika person, we should get in touch with my friend via video call as well. He might not seem like it, but he's an expert on Infernals and Warlock Arts. We were actually on the same Wake team before... well... *he stops, seeming to grow somber* Its a long story...


~Team Tori~

Alex: *he nods, looking to Kari who responds with a silent nod of her own. Together, the three head out of the ship as Lugo sends a message to Spirit*

Kari: We should take the fastest route we can to the mining city from here. Tori, since you know the area, you lead the way. Alex and I will provide support.

Alex: Hopefully, this will also help Spirit and Rocky in their investigation as well...

Caesar: BWOARK! BWOARK!

*meanwhile, in the bustling crowd milling around the spaceport, a rather large Ape Anthro, a Kong from Talarus, a planet in the Helion system, was watching the ship. He had a rather large, drum-like stomach and was shirtless save for a black cotton and fleese vest. His eyes were hidden by a pair of circular sunglasses as the Kong scratched his stomach, yawning while he watched the team depart*

Malcom: YAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWNNNNN! Barabarabarabarabarabara....What a pain... *he reaches into his jacket pocket and speaks into the green crystal he retrieved* They're on the move... Barabarabarabarabara....

Knives: *his voice responds calmly* The girls and the beast can die for all I care. But the boy... bring him here. Alive and unharmed...

Malcom: Yaaaaaawwwwwwn.......... *smacks lips sleepily* Barabarabarabarabara.... what a pain... Sure thing. Any word from The Master?

Knives: None yet, but if his calculations are correct, then the young ones are headed here while the Detectives and the older Kaos sister try to track us from the North... continue on to the next phase.




~Team Rocky~

Rocky: *picks up the digital tablet on the table and types in the information for Shrika, the archaeologist. She finds out his contact information and sends him an instant message asking if they could talk over the phone. While waiting for a response, she looks up and asks the other two about the aforementioned ages.* What was the Burning Age like? I mean, I only know Tropican history before the MIW, but... nothing outside of this world. It's a little embarrassing, especially for this case. And to be honest, I've never worked so closely with detectives before. I'm sorry if I'm not very good at this investigating part... *her shoulders sink a little*

~Team Tori~

Tori: I can ask them to lend us a small plane, since that would be the fastest way to get there. The smaller, the easier it is for us to sneak onto the continent. *she tells her Koko security staff about the idea, and they rush off to find a pilot as Tori leads them to the hangar, adjacent to where the space port is* Here, let's pick something not so obvious...

*she prowls around the planes and decides on an old fashioned one - in Tropican technology, anyway! It looks like this: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/23/HondaJet_Ryabtsev.jpg/800px-HondaJet_Ryabtsev.jpg .*

Tori: This one should be able to get us there in about... 2 hours? That's fast enough, I think.

*the security team soon return with a pilot. Enter Piraki, a female Koko with a thin frame, but still about 5'11" tall.*

Piraki: So, looks like we're one sister short? *sasses*

Tori: She's busy with the other part of this very serious investigation. We need to go on reconnaissance. Can you take us just outside of Minarr on Phoenix? We need to get there as soon as possible.

Piraki: Sure, what's the rush? *she goes to the plane and begins inspecting it both inside and out for safety purposes*

Tori: People are legitimately dying over there and we need to stop a crazy demonic serial killer! *shouts, but then stops, realizing she exploded a bit. she sighs, disappointed she lost her cool* Sorry, I just feel all this pressure now that we're actually going there...

Piraki: *nods and smiles at the group* Alright. I'll get you guys there. Just, save the world, Kaos. Everyone, come aboard. *gets in and leaves the door open for the others*




~Team Rocky~

Spirit: *he shaked his head, smiling to Rocky reassuringly* Not at all! If anything, you're doing fantastic despite your supposed lack of knowledge. You have a real knack for problem solving, Rocky! If anything, I'd love to have someone like you on my team!

Bonesaw: *he comically gags* Will you two get a freaking room? Anyway, the Burning Age was utter chaos! The whole of Mosaic, from Tropic to Iciaura, from Antool to Rapture, and everywhere in between was owned by the Demons of Inferno! They had Barons that ruled each world with an iron fist, all of which answered directly to the War Devil of that age, War Devil Agares. Pretty much, if you weren't a Demon, you were property. They say that age was when the Law first really emerged from the shadows on Iciaura...

Spirit: Speaking of Warlocks, I should contact my friend while we wait for Shrika to get back to us... *he opens a chat line on his holo-screen, typing out a sequence of speedy keys before the device connects him to what appears to be a Secretary*

Secretary: *the secretary was a female Draconian with red scales and hair, who smiles warmly to Spirit* Thank you for calling Phage-Crux LLC Corporate Office! Who may I ask is calling and for whom are you placing this call?

Spirit: I'd like to speak with Mr. Phage... tell him its Spirit, and its urgent. Lives may hang in the balance...

Secretary: *she seems surprised by the urgency of the call, but nods* Of course! I will inform Mr. Phage at once! *the screen cuts to a holding screen as upbeat, trendy music plays in the background*

Bonesaw: *he puts his feet up on the table, crossing his arms as he groans* I freaking hate that hoity toity...

*the screen flashes as the music cuts out, shifting to show a new person on the other end*

Spirit: *he smiles at the new being with a look of nothing but pure admiration, respect, and friendship* Atlas...

Atlas: *the being was a male Celestian-Human hybrid with dark, gunmetal grey skin and long, shaggy, neon violet hair with hazel brown eyes like warm chocolate. He dressed very warmly, wearing a black cashmere long coat and matching, thick scarf around his neck, giving him a cute, almost cuddly appearance. On his face, he wore a thick pair of black, horn-rimmed glasses, giving him a studious air about him. Finally, the last detail about him that stood out was the fact that, despite a clearly fit and well-trimmed build, he was bound to a white, cybernetic wheelchair. When he speaks, his voice is soft but kind, and carries an intelligent command to it* Spirit! A pleasure to hear from you again! You're looking well, old friend.

Spirit: *he makes way so that Rocky and Atlas could see each other* Atlas, this is one of my friends from Uniforce, Rocky Kaos. She and her sister are in charge of protecting Planet Tropic as heroes.

Atlas: THE Rocky Kaos? Word of you and your sister's exploits have travelled far, even in Helion. A pleasure to make your acquaintance!~

Spirit: Rocky, this is one of my best friends in the entire universe, Atlas Phage! You may know him as the owner of Phage-Crux LLC, the largest technological conglomerate in Helion and Mosaic!




~Team Rocky~

Rocky: *blushes after hearing Spirit's encouragement, but snaps out of her happy moment when Bonesaw begins to explain* That's horrible... I had no idea Demons were ruling over this whole system... Now that you mention it, I remember something about deities when I researched about the Sky King of Tropic. He's said to be a very powerful creature with lots of Life Force Energy, much more than any of us combined... 'Gods' like him are on the level of 'Demons' which were all expelled from Tropic by the likes of that very same Sky King. That's why he's so revered among the Aeonimbic people and others. If he's still around, anyway. No one knows if he's still floating around up there in the atmosphere of Tropic, but no one wants to invade 'sacred grounds' to find out. I personally don't think one being can survive for 4 or more millenia, so I don't think he's around anymore. Still, if he's gone, then that would make perfect sense as to why Demons would be back on our doorsteps.

*Rocky refreshes the cybek (internet) browser on the tablet to see if there was any response while the two guys contacted Mr. Phage. She picks her head up when the call starts*

Rocky: *notices both guys' change in mood when it came to this person* thinking: wow, they really are very different. I guess that's like me and my sister...

*Rocky may have only been 15, but she found Atlas to be rather handsome! He was very easy on the eyes as he was polite, and very flattering, to boot! She blushed yet again, extremely happy her marks as a hero traveled well over the galaxy!*

Rocky: Wow, thank you so much, Mr. Atlas Phage! Now that you mention the company, I think we trade with the P-CLLC, especially what I'm made of, Tropican Steel! Haha, 'No tougher stuff, one sheet is enough!' Haahaa... haha... ha... S-Sorry, commercial jingle still in my head after all these years...
