@Ziccarra_Liafador:

Though a well traveled man, the immortal was never a party going person. Amongst the rabble of the Fiesta De Carnival's comical and joyous activity the silky white haired conqueror felt little fun to be had, yet. With an uncanny eye he spotted a red cardinal, the prodigious followers of the La Malaguena. As a master matter manipulator, the Glourious Conqueror could make nearly any thought a reality. But instead of flaunting his power like a spoiled brat, he made use of it in more subtle ways, such as manipulation of sensory stimuli by altering the way one's brain perceived it. While the male guardsman was most likely trained against coercion and loyal to the end, he had no way to combat this level of control. "Fetch your leader, tell her I will be waiting on her balcony," The immortal said, before pulling his famous vanishing act, the people surrounding oblivious to the spectacle.

@The_Assassin_:(This is kinda important @Glorious: “Senor, you traveled all the way across the ocean to show gratitude to such a person?” La Malaguena asked clasping her hands together. “Domina, I tried to stop him!” Isabella screamed, as one of her grunt Cardinals came rushing into her room interrupting their conversation.

“I’m sorry Domina, there is urgent news; a man or beast is coming to visit you on your balcony; he knows about the Cardinals”

It was at that moment; that La Malaguena’s eyebrow rose; his mentioning of the Cardinals in her home was a no-no. “Isabella, will you escort our rude guest off out of our villa…” she said, nodding in a clandestine meaning.

“You’ll have to excuse me senor” she said, pushing away from her table. "

A smile manifested as he could feel the Malaguena making her way to the location.

@The_Assassin_: "Curiosity killed the cat," He spoke, manipulating the sound waves so that only the nosey listener could hear him. In the same moment he created a wall of air pressure, effectively preventing the sound waves created by both his and La Malaguena's words to be heard by none other than the two.

His eyes turned and stared into the stars, as he recalled the memory of several figures he'd been watching closely.

Isabella was instructed to direct everyone into the Liafador dojo; a room that rest 5 feet under the foundation of the house; the training ground for the Liafador family. On this night a meeting similar to the congress of Vienna would take place.

The most influential minds of the time were to meet, and discuss the expansion of not only Cardinal Power, but unified power. Hundreds of drinks and refreshments were poured into the dojo. Usually hidden amongst the estate, but on this night the colors of the Red Cardinals were present all around the City of Malaga.

The fiery latina stood in the “serpent’s circle” (The middle of the dojo ring) in a captivating red dress, her trademark split absent as she meant business. The clock struck 1:30am; which meant the guest were to arrive soon. This meeting would turn the foundation of Europe on it’s heels.

@Ziccarra_Liafador:

The pleasantries of earthlings were much different from humans of other planets. They indulged in food and drink. Adorned decorative elements around the setting. These simple things captivated them, the way strife and conflict captivated the Glorious in his early days. For an hour he stood in the dojo, invisible to the Malaguena, watching, waiting for those who saw truth in his words. Some may not have developed the courage to lay their faith in others and forsaken this opportunity. It was of no consequence. Power was not meant to be spread lest it spread to thin.

Everything had been arranged to his comfort the Boeing Jet that flew him to Malaga and the chauffeur ride to the Malagan woman's Spanish estate. He read Carl Jung's Man and His Symbols the short ride there and only looked up from his theoretical reading when his Iberian driver notified him of his arrival. He emerged from the Matte Black Aventador in Maison Martin Magiela color-blocked and layered with a black mackintosh coat, maroon scarf and a crisp white dress shirt.

His father's ethos lingered on modesty and emanated to the governance of the Sienese Kingdom he cultivated, but Hadrian had plans of expansion and revolution-- unwanted volta's in his father's eyes. With a deep understanding of the myrmecoidic psyche of his people and how it was built, Hadrian saw the world as his oyster. The Church of Tellphast would be his first plot of expansion, seeing the amount of top tier celebrities from the globe interested in the Tellphast's pagan ideology.

Handing off his Jung book to the Malagan chauffeur Hadrian climbed the steps marveling at the woman's eye for asymmetrical architecture. He hoped to be impressed with her and the guest among them as much as the nurtured estate.

@Ziccarra_Liafador

Azures trip from Los Angeles to Spain had been a short one as he had utilized his ability to literally "swim" through the earth at remarkable speeds.

He strode with an air of confidence, almost arrogance as he entered the Liafador dojo. He was clad in his peoples ceremonial dress; robes crimson red with pinstriped lines of bright gold. As me moved into the room, he took position up near a wall; still standing and admiring the woman in the centre of the dojo. Azure could not tell if she were human or not, but certainly, Azure looked human as well.

Azure crossed his arms as he stood erect, glaring around the room as he broke line of sight with the woman. As he scanned the room he thought that the woman must be the one who had ultimately collected him, but that would be found out in due time.

@_Azure: @Manifesto_: @Ziccarra_Liafador: "And so it begins..." The mysterious immortal made his presence known, eyeing the group with intrigue. "I am not sure if you know, but the Malaguena," His hand gesturing to Ziccarra, "has offered to be our gracious host for the evening. I know you have questions. And those will answered here. When we leave this room our individuality must remain in this room. To usher this world and its inhabitants to a state of enlightenment under our reign will take a combined effort and meticulous planning." The enigma moved to take a seat, one of the drinks forced into his hand from the table.

"The greatest of trees cannot grow without a well nurtured foundation. Look around you, this will be the soil from which our mighty tree shall grow." Looking to Ziccarra the Glorious was sure she had something to add.

“Throughout history there have been plenty of groups likes us” She said, descending the steps from the ring, holding a wine glass between her fingers the graceful Malagan beauty eyed her cohorts. “We have been selected to usher in an age of understanding and enlightenment” she said, piggy backing off the spectre.

“My friends, our task will not be an easy one; but with the proper backing and funding to our individual goals; we can transform the world into a mold fit for us, especially since there is no one to say otherwise” Z’s harsh Spanish accent made her words a bit slurred, the beautiful Isabella spoke fluent English and translated for her every now and then.

“An acquaintance of mine, Orpheus Ziev; is on the verge of taking the Presidency of the United States” Z’s reveal was finished with a smirk. She knew no one expected her to have her teeth already sunk so far into the plan.

“Ziev, will back me here in Spain; I’ll back you guys in your endeavors; if we can get the United States to “pull out” of the Middle East, the world’s oil is ours” she said, resting her bum on the arm of the chair, her legs crossed underneath her scarlet dress.

@Ziccarra_Liafador

Azure looked inquisitively towards the centre of the dojo where the lady clad in the red dress stood. He pondered the words she had just spoken, contemplating his decision on the matter at hand. Azure had no questions or concerns, but he was curious however about who else would be part of this alliance.

Overall, the plan was very well put together and Azure was some what impressed. The humans relied on oil for practically everything; it was simple, control the oil, control the world. Oil was a false sense of security for the humans; it made their machines work, gave them money, but it was their one true weakness. It was a weakness that would be fully exploited, a weakness that would bring them to their knee's.

Azure spoke up, "When do we start?"

@Glorious: @Ziccarra_Liafador: @_Azure:

"The globe clamors for oil now, but soon enough it'll be the water resources or the private space technology the Swedish and Japanese hide from the UN and European Union. What about metahumans...?"Hadrian created a steeple with his fingers and continued speaking, his French flourish filtering clearly throughout the dojo, light brown eyes set directly on Malaguena. ""I ask what would be our contingency to their inevitable strike in response to our activity. The pivotal moment the metahumans naturally rise to the occasion while the old human global structure collapses?" Hadrian knew if this cabal did not make a power move, another circle would; and the stigmatized superhumans would serve as the only true hope in response to their controversial actions. This was a necessary phase in the global transition into the Metahuman Zeitgeist.

“In this human world, people like you are told to hide your powers out of fear” her eyes quickly dart towards Glorious; and people like you hide in the dark moving with the shadows” her Mediterranean eyes befell on Hadrian again.

“The heroes can organize themselves into a “cohesive” unit, but the one thing they lack is conviction; squads of four, five maybe even six people; still only have ONE leader.” She said, taking her seat on the armrest of a love seat.

“We are four, five of the most competent minds, a strike against one of us is a strike against a million”

Azure continued to look upon the centre of the dojo at the woman called Z. Clearly he was pleased by the response as a slight grin cracked across his face. Minus that single indication, he was like granite; standing completely still, arms crossed, and totally silent.

It was unknown Azure's nature or if it was simply a coincidence that everything about reflected the very thing he could control. Plans had to be solid and concrete, his personality was strong and direct, and he had the patience to watch a boulder the size of car erode to dust.

Azure broke his personal silence and spoke up once more, "What makes us different from the others who have tried before us? We are surely not the innovators of trying to take over the world. I may not have spent my life on the surface world as have the rest of you, but I am certainly not ignorant to the fact that even the most full-proof plans have been put to a stop by the world's heroes."

Watching mortals converse was entertaining. Whether it was on the television or in person, the Glorious always found himself intrigued with a gathering of minds. He broke his silence with a complacent, yet confident tone. "If you don't mind," eyes darting to Ziccarra, "The plan is not to take over the world. That is but a step. It goes much further than this. These planets, they're not just eye candy." He paused, casting his glance away, realizing he had risen from his seat as he spoke. Glorious returned his gaze, only now the pupil's adopted the visual of a starry night sky, with a streaking comet running across them. "But I digress..."

A energy materialized beside him, expanding with multiple colors available. It then formed the shape of a metallic figure, a man, power exuded from his frame. "This is an entity known as Warsman. Mulit-dimensional, cosmic being with unfathomable power at his whim. He has captured the city of Quebec. When I say capture, I mean, its gone off the planet. Because of this the UN has called a meeting in which all superpowers will be gathered in response to this global attack. This will be an event that will shape our future.
