"Do not take me for a fool. I will speak no more of it but don't think I don't know who you are." She frowned, blades popping from the fingers on her right hand.

"Oh i know you know who i am, but i also think you think i'm still who i was" the hooded figure shrugs again, unconcerned by the weapons "Don't take it the wrong way, i'm not insulting your intelligence; i'm just saying Lord Wyvern won't be making a reappearance unless the shock value'd be worth its weight in latinum."

A small flash of light attracted your attention. As you look to its source, you notice a young man standing behind the nearest corner with a cellphone and pointing it at you.
It looks like he just took your picture and the flash on his camera accidentally went off.

The man realized his mistake, got visibly spooked and bolted out of view.








(Everyone)


"I knew it!" Jane pointed at you with a frown: "I knew you were holding something from me!
Clopin is no guardian angel! He's a hostage taker!"


"Jane.. please-" Tomas raised his hands in a calming manner but Jane frowned at him:

"Did you say he took a number of government members hostage?! Why are you following his demands!" Jane scowled.

Tomas uneasily stepped forward with an uneasy expression: "We didn't see the harm. He only asked us to protect you"

"Did he also ask you to escort me to this.. Cyber-something lab?" Jane frowned: "Did you ask him why? I don't believe following demands of a hostage taker is a wise course of action"

"The lab is run by an honorable doctor" Tomas said in a calming voice: "There's no harm in going there"

"As far as you know" Jane frowned: "Look, everyone, we can't just blindly do what Clopin says. We need to start thinking about how to disarm him. Not how to obey him.
Now if this 'hacker' is working with Clopin, we need to nab him and press him for answers! They clearly know something about me! About my identity! Otherwise they wouldn't order you to protect me!"


"Jane, please, its too dangerous" Tomas slowly said, raising his hands.

"Why? If the hacker is working with Clopin, then I have nothing to fear from him. They both want to protect me right?" Jane said: "Look, I'm going to see the hacker. I want answers about who I am. That's final.
And if we nab the hacker, Clopin looses his ally outside. He'll have no choice but to listen our demands now" Jane said with a concentrated expression. The terrified woman from before was gone. You see determination behind her eyes.



As Serena inserted the phone chip into the tablet, a popup message showed that the chip was wiped clean of all data. Why the thug carried a phone with no battery and a clean chip, is unclear.


The TV add board above the street, began playing another news broadcast:

"-..have now identified the leader of the 'Disciples of Marek'. The man you see now is known by the alias 'Clopin'.
A heavily augmented, skilled and dangerous individual. He is believed to have been dishonorably discharged from the military and deemed psychologically unstable.
Prone to irrational behavior, often resulting in violence, this man is believed to be extremely dangerous and cannot be reasoned with.
More information will follow, as it becomes available-
"


The TV add screen started showing Clopins profile picture. His picture was staring at the camera with a half smile. His face haphazardly painted in white and red colors.



"..are they serious?" Mira sighed: "Still no word about the hostage situation?
Maybe you're right about the whole UNN vs. Clopin thing. They seem to be taking pot shots at each other.



"I'm going to the dance club" Jane said again: "I want to talk to this hacker. I want answers about my life"

"Okay" Kaylee nodded and slightly inched towards Mercer: "...ma'am... Councilor.... Katherin!" she said in a loud whisper, as Mercer didn't seem to respond.

After another moment, Mercer slightly turned her head towards Kaylee and said in an angry whisper:
"......did you forget about what happened this morning? You really want to get out of this room?"


Kaylee suddenly turned pale and looked away. Her ears fell down. She seems to be remembering something and the memory was stirring very unpleasant thoughts. She suddenly looked as scared and shell shocked as she did this morning.


Mercer briefly looked at her and sighed: "Its okay... we're stuck here. Not our fault. So count your blessings"


"What... what are we... what are we supposed to do?..." Kaylee quietly asked, pale as a sheet.


"Trust in this man.." Mercer slightly tilted her head towards Clopin: "Trust he keeps his word"

"Are you serious?!" Kaylee loudly whispered.

"You wonna get your head cut off by that whip?" Mercer scowled at her: "Cos that's gonna help your-" she cut herself off and looked around.
Kaylee seems to have understood what she meant though.


"We sit here, keep our heads low" Mercer firmly whispered: "Trust in our friends outside"


"What about talking to Clopin?" Kaylee asked: "Find out who he is"


"I already know who he is" Mercer scowled at Clopin: "A brash, careless idiot, who thinks he can fix the world, by endangering every living being in it"



Clopin finally lowered his earpiece, slightly turned his head and released a half smile:

"...I can hear you.. you know.." he quietly said.

"I can kind of understand where Jane is coming from. I think we should find the hacker, but if it takes too much time we give up and go. We don't know if this Clopin will keep to his word." Moon sighed, smiling at Jane to try and reassure her.

(???)

"HEY!" She shouted and chased after the man, her legs moving surprising fast despite wearing boots.

382 Re: Digital Waltz on Tue 11 Jul - 23:13

(Serena)
Serena had pulled apart the phone removing all of the electronic components, searching for anything that looked out of the ordinary.

"So you think that some nerd is going to have more information about your memories than an actual doctor with experience in psychiatry?" There was a soft crack of plastic, "Stopping the hacker is important, to that I will agree. But it's doubtful he has the answers you seek"

(Naomi)
The mare stopped to watch the broadcast. A feeling of apathy washed over her as she realized that she was investing her energy into something she cared very little about. She had very little connection to the people in the van.

Naomi continued her way back to the van, doubt slowly creeping into her mind. Several meters in front of her a familiar figured seemed to fall from the sky. Landing with a rather well-executed roll and who made his way to the crashed van.

(Radiance)
Radiance had seen or rather heard the brief riot followed be the anticlimactic van crash. His late morning meditation interrupted by the commotion, and now curiosity had taken a full grip of his mind.

Radiance slid down from his perch on one of the roofs, landing and rolling to desperse the impact. His wings adjusting slighlty under his cloat to slow him down in order to make the drop. Radiance made his way to the van's driver side. Once there, he lighlty knocked on the window.

(Everyone)


"Whazzup" Mira called, looking through the vans window. After a moment, she squinted at Radiance:
"Mmmm... you look familiar... where have I seen you before?..."


Jane crossed her arms and looked at Serena: "Their profession doesn't matter. Clopin and his hacker have to know something about me.
I'm not just a random stranger to them. They know me. They know something about me. Why else would they demand my protection?
I want to know what they know.

The doctor you describe can be the best doctor in the world, but if he never met me, he won't know about my past life.
Even if he has a way to treat my amnesia, that process is very slow. It can takes months. I can't wait that long"


Jane frowned and looked at her palms: "... I.. had a purpose... there was something I had to do... something important... I'm sure of that now. And every moment I spend not following that purpose, is a moment wasted...
I need to find answers. I need to recover my memories"


She looked at Moon and nodded: "If it takes too long to search for the hacker, we'll drop it and leave. But I have to try.. I have to.." she looked away, troubled.



As Serena looked through the phones components, you find a small electronic chip that shouldn't be there.
After further examination, it seems the chip was meant to somehow interact with the phones card and its battery.
The strange chip itself, seems to be badly burned. Possibly overheated. Its more important parts seem unusable.












(???, Not Wyvern)


The man emitted a startled shriek and ran faster. You seem to be catching up to him rather quickly though and after a few moments, he was well within reach.

"I understand. Some of us will go to any lengths to find answers." She looked down "But we have to be careful as we do so."

She grabbed him by the back of the shirt with her left arm, a glove on her hand "WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOURE DOING!"

"I.. I know.." Jane uneasily looked at the floor: "... I don't want anyone to be hurt because of my actions, especially the hostages"

She looked at you, worried: "...but if we're serious about disarming Clopin, we have to start thinking about how we can escape his grasp.
He took hostages. He threatened them. We can't trust his good will. If we continue to follow his demands, we may end up making things worse.

I don't know why he wants to protect me. Why he wants me to go to this lab. But there's a possibility that he's setting us up. Setting up something bad.

Catching his hacker will weaken him. Weaken his plan. We shouldn't turn away from this opportunity"






(???, Not Wyvern)


"Don't hurt me please!!" The man squealed. He seems terrified, curling in fear and staring at you in horror.

"I was just recording a video, they told me to do it!"

(Moon)

"I agree with Jane on this. It should catch him off guard. But, Clopin seems to be watching us. He knew when we had found Jane, I think he'd know if we got the hacker." Moon frowned.

(???)

"Who told you?" She growled and lifted him up with her left arm, also cybernetic but a different model. The blades extended from her fingers "TELL ME!"

"Damn.." Jane nervously bit her lip.


"I don't think it was Clopin watching us.." Tomas said, thinking: "He's locked up in that saferoom, likely guarding the hostages and making sure no one tries to get in.
Multitasking that and hacking surveillance equipment across the city, would be too much for him. He'd loose his focus.

No, I think its his hacker, taking over street cameras and watching our movement, then reporting it to Clopin somehow. Maybe via radio.

If so, we have to either sneak into the dance club, without the hacker noticing us. Or stop the hacker reporting our movements to Clopin"



"We have that jammer right?" Jane asked: "We activate it, jam the hackers radio and march into the club to nab him. He won't be able to tell Clopin anything.






(???, Not Wyvern)

"I DON'T KNOW!" the man started crying: "THE PEOPLE WHO HACKED MY PHONE!

Don't hurt me, please! I have a family!!" He's trying to cover his eyes in fear.

388 Re: Digital Waltz on Wed 12 Jul - 0:21

(Oboro)

"Got it right here." She said with a slight smile, holding up the jammer for a moment. "But before we barge there, let's keep the facts straight. Most of the things he pulled off today were all in his grasp. His control. But the moment something unexpected happens, outside his calculations, he gets mad and ready to cut down the council and the boss."

She then turns serious. "While he's in control, he's sane. While he's sane, the hostages live. And getting the hacker will make him lose it, and cut their throats."

Arnold raised an eyebrow. "But, what is he actually trying to take from there now?"

Oboro frowned. "What?"

The blonde man was patching up his shoulder. "Look, the initial attacks on the councilbuilding would make the people look one way, while he went the other. But right now, he's already inside. What for? What is he trying to get with that?"

The blue pegausus was thinking, but didn't seem to come up with a clear answer. "More infiltrators?"

(Twilight)

Twilight frowned at the councilwoman.

"I'm dissapointed in you, Katherine."

Violet sighs rolling her eyes as she listens to them banter...

She had some time to think...

She growls, "yeah no..." she drops it and the tazer she opens her wings and flys to a nearby rooftop where she practically dissapears.

Rain: she had been watching theze broadcasts and she sighs looking over to Harle, "I really do get this feeling... That our friends are in some serious trouble..." she sighs popping a piece if candy in her mouth, "and here i am... Eating sweets..." she looks back at Harle, her mechanical eye picking up her heat signiture, "I feel the need to go out there..." she sighs and looks away again as she walks to the balcony.

Her eyes stare out in the direction of adelhide, elbows resting on thr fence of the balcony, her fingers go to her temples as she takes a deep breath.

The hooded figure, only now seeming to even notice the incident, grabbed the man's phone with their telekinesis and brought it to them, to examine what had been recorded.

(Radiance)
Radiance briefly introduced himself to the group then stayed silent while the others debated what to do. Normally he would have checked to see if everyone was ok and moved on. However, Moon being there as well as the mention of hostages made him stay. The call of saving lives was something that was hard to ignore

(Serena)
Satisfied with what she learned from the device Serena turned her attention to the tablet, and with the empty chip inside started working. The beginning of a virus taking form.

"So are we planning on just disabling his device or are we going to outright kill the guy?" Serena briefly glances up from her tablet

(Naomi)
Naomi stood about 10 meters from the van watching. Anything she could hear coming from it was just muffled noise. Her eyes briefly following Violet as she left then returning to watching the metallic vehicle.

She began to scan the area, watching for the signs of the reinforcements that were supposed to arrive.

Jane watched Violet leave with rapidly growing sadness in her eyes. She looked away and quietly said:
"...did she leave because of me?... I.. didn't mean to cause any strife.." She quietly said, her expression became miserable.



Mira looked at her, then shifted in place, also catching a sad expression:
"L-Look.. lets not... umm..." she seems to be having trouble gathering her thoughts, then slightly sighed and collected her hands:
"Okay, umm... we probably shouldn't kill anyone.. I doubt the.. police officers among us, would be very happy with it.." she looked at Tomas, before continuing:

"..also, if we kill the hacker, we won't be able to question him about Jane or this whole incident.

We should try to identify him in the club, then put him under arrest. Ask him to tell us everything.

Now, its true that this plan can go sideways and Clopin may retaliate.
Its a dangerous plan, but so is following Clopins instructions, without making an exit strategy. We can't follow his instructions forever. Who knows what will happen"



Mira looked at everyone: "We have two options:
Leave the hacker be and endure whatever damage he does.
Or nab him and risk Clopins retaliation"



Tomas scratched his ear in thought: "He may not necessarily retaliate. If he hurts the hostages too much, he risks loosing our cooperation. He still needs us to do something for him. He may not want to sabotage that yet.
Plus, he only said he'd hurt the hostages if Jane got hurt. He didn't say anything about his hacker.."


"Are we willing to take that risk though?" Jane quietly asked.


"I don't know. It may turn bad either way" Mira said, then looked at everyone: "So, what do we do?
Try to nab the hacker? Or leave him be and endure whatever he does?"















(Naomi)


As you scan the area, you notice a crowd starting to gather on the outskirts of the street. They mostly looked like curious passersby, briefly stopping to gawk.
Most had their cellphones out, either taking pictures of the police van or recording a video.

You note that 10 minutes had gone and passed, yet the police convoy is nowhere in sight.

The crowd around the street is slowly growing thicker.













(???, Not Wyvern)


As the phone began levitating towards you, a blue-screen suddenly appeared on its display. The phone emitted a screeching noise of static and shut down.

The man is looking at you in alarm, visibly scared: "...I don't know whats going on, please just let me go.." he pleaded.










(Rain Runner)


"..I'm sure the local law enforcement is doing everything they can" Harlequin quietly said. She was sitting behind a wooden table, carefully filling out some sort of government documentation.

After a moment she stopped writing and lowered her pen, looking at you, as you entered the balcony:

"...you want to go out there, don't you.." she said and looked at her palms: "...I know that feeling well. The truth is, I want to go out there too. The life of a princess is not something I desired. But the truth this, my new role has shackled me in some ways.

I'm afraid I'm forbidden to put it on hold and head out to the field, where I really want to be.

There is a.. scheduled meeting with one of the Union Councilors, a few hours from now. I scheduled the meeting to further negotiate the Unions aid, in Nyx's infrastructural development. Its vital to the prosperity of our country. We must grow with the Unions help, until we can stand on our own two feet. Until then, I'm afraid I'm locked in this position, as Nyx's de-facto leader"


She lowered her head and sighed, thinking. Then looked at you:

"...Rain... you're an exceptional warrior. I know your heart aches to help our friends, just like mine.
If you feel you must travel to Adelheid, to make sure they are safe, then, you should go. I only wish I could come with you... like old times"


She slowly stood up from the table and walked closer to you: "Please, take this"

She handed you a sturdy looking, military cellphone:

"...this is a very special phone. Connects directly to the Union satellite and then directs the call to me.
If anything happens. If at any point, you feel there is a genuine threat in Adelheid, call me, using this phone, right away. And I will be there, with the squad of our best men"


Harlequin slowly passed you the phone with a grim expression. Without the mask, it was easy to read her. She worried about you.
















(Twilight)


"I don't care" Mercer dryly replied.


Clopin took one of the chairs, placed it with its back facing you and took a seat, leaning with his chin on the chairs back:

"Well, you wanted to talk-" he briefly checked his watch: "-we got time to kill. So-"
He looked at you with a half smile:

"What would you like to know about me?"

"I dunno people..." She seemed a bit hesitant, as she recalls her own 'brilliant' action. "There's no guarantee the hacker will stay put. Especially when they know we're coming. We need to get a plan ready to get closer."

Arnold frown a bit. "I don't like saying it, but what if we distract them somehow? Perhaps with their other opponent. When they fight eachother, we can move freely, with out their interference."

Oboro nodded. "It could work." She takes out the jammer. "We do have a tool for framing them here..."

Rain: She takes the phone and with a deep breath she locks Harle in a hug, "I will be back..." she whispers, "I just need to find out whats going on...." she closes her eyes a moment as she looks away from Harle, "i'm sure you can handle things while im away..." she makes her way to her bow, it slips into her hand and she smiles at the feeling, she grabs her belt and it clicks around her waist, the quiver ran up her leg but was somewhat loosely attached to the belt. She takes her estoc and her stelleto off the wall, slipping them both into their sheaths. She smiles at harle, "Feels good..." she chuckles, she moves back to the balcony looking back at Harle a smile across her face as she slips the phone into a pocket, "I'll be back~ love ya hun!" she jumps from the balcony and her wings shoot open as she makes her way to the city.

Violet stands on top of a roof she walks to the edge looking down at the road, her heart was pounding in her chest... Was she really doing the right thing? Which side was she really on she wondered. She has a solom look on her face as she approches the side where her companions were, she takes a deep breath before letting out a confused and tired groan, "I'm just not made for this..." she shakes her head, "but the entire world is in parel..." she walks off to the other side of the roof hunting for the club that was mentioned.

Right now I say we play along with Clopin and start preparing our own trap"

Anyone looking at Radiance with their glasses will see the following

Radiance
Name was legally changed from Jason White in 2019
Age: 27
Occupation: Mercenary for private militia group


Radiance finally spoke, "I'd urge leaning towards whichever decision that will risk the least amount of lives."

Whether it was fatigue from being up so early or simply not caring the lack of the police didn't seem to bother her. She watched the crowd slowly reassemble letting the ambiance wash over her.
