@ziccarra_liafador: Alex wanted to ask about the man, but he knew Ziccarra would tell him, if he needed to know anything. Alex took a seat, he looked at her, "Yes." He pulled out his blade. He looked back at her, while messing with the tip of the blade, "Any missions coming up? Stuff, I need to know about? Anything?" He was getting quite bored in the headquarters and he was starting to feel like it was the lab all over again.

@fallenprophet: She watched as Daemon disappeared, his charming allure broken by the sight of bugs trailing behind him. She was caught in a momentary gaze, trying to decide if allowing herself to be removed from active play in the UT was wise. "Daemon means well" she said, reassuring him with a head nod. "We need to act soon" she said, escorting him to a massive war room screen. "I believe the Cerebrum has been targeted for an attack, the cospirer Cleopatra Thea of Kalli.

@ziccarra_liafador: As he left a single scarab fell to the ground and looked up at Ziccarra, its back opened up and a single note popped out. The note read "Come to the Hill, I need to speak with you about Cleo..."

@ziccarra_liafador: "Cleo? She was at the mission." Alexander remembered through all the chaos, there floated a woman in the sky. "Is she really a goddess?" Alexander was curious, then he recollected himself, "but why would she want to attack Cerebrum?" Alexander didn't even know where Cerebrum was, much less why someone would want to attack it.

@fallenprophet: "There are a lot of reasons why, but I guess the catalyst for this would have to be the man that was killed, in Kalli not long ago." she explained taking a seat. "She probably tracked down the man's killer to the Cerebrum; yes she is a goddess and a powerful force known as the Heron."

@ziccarra_liafador: "So, I'm not asking when we're going in. I want to know how we're going to get in and get out. After the X-Factor Mission, I'm done with going in as quick as possible. I want to know how." Z knew Alex's concerns from the last mission because he was far from quite about them.

@fallenprophet: "Cleo is weakened by the moon, we can launch a preemptive strike into Kalli during the night time; however such an action would bring us into conflict with the Gods and Goddess, all of which are powered to some degree. We'd have to get in secure Cleo; and get her out before the sun rose" Z said, plotting point on a map.

"Then again, I'm not sure Cleo is working alone."

@ziccarra_liafador: "Are we even sure Cleo is working?" Alexander wanted to know if Z was sure of the accusations. He did not want to start a conflict, that could've been avoided. He looked at where Z had pointed on the map. He wondered who all would work on this project.

@fallenprophet:
"That was a thought of Samantha" Z said, pressing her hand on her head.
"We know Kalli sent an encrypted message to the Cerebrum, but Kalli does not have that type of technology; some one is planning a false flag event" Z admitted. "We have TWO additional problems, there is a massive energy spike over Kalli; one that's keeping that city hotter than it has ever been, we believe Cleo might be calling this energy to weaponize against the Cerebrum. Then there is Xenon" she paused.

@ziccarra_liafador: The mention of Xenon, was something Alexander did not want to hear. He had confronted the Mutant Maestro and he knew they would collide once again, but he was hoping farther down the road. Alex rose from his seat. he looked at Z with look saying, "What am I supposed to do?" He didn't want to confront Xenon again.

Cassandra sat silently on the floor of her pod, her eyes closed as her body was as still as a mountain in full lotus position. Meditation was something the assassin took seriously, it allowed both her mind and body to rest, taking place of sleep. One full hour of meditation was the same amount of eight hours of sleep for the paid killer. This also allowed her to focus on her powers, become more in tuned with them, and helped her mind to stay focus. Opening her eyes she took a deep breath before slowly letting it out, standing back up from the ground she stretched her arms and legs a little as they felt a bit stiff and made her way out of the pod walking over to the garage of the HQ to get her motorcycle. She had a job to do tonight, it was a petty job... one she would have turned away if she wasn't so bored. She was to go to the National Museum of Finland to meet with her temporary employer.

@fallenprophet: "Calm down amigo" Z say, pressing her hand on his shoulder. "Xenon cares more for his people than he does Cleo; this energy spike is unstable and will neutralize everyone in the city." She explained. "Do not worry about it, if need be we WILL go into Kalli, and I will have to deal with Xenon myself" she said, exhaling deeply.

"During my time in college I aided a friend of mine in the development of a device that can be tailored to this event just as easily. Do any of you remember a tyrant known as Warsman?

Striding into the room with an astonishing amount of silence for a being clad in some of the world's most dense metals, Assault didn't mince words or waste breath with greetings or small talk, he cut straight through the cake and swallowed his piece in one ravenous gulp.

@shanana:

The young Jacob Stark blushed beneath his helmet, his bravado suddenly crushed by Zicarra's disarming smirk. Exponentially relived by the fact that his voice was more or less masked by the Assault armour's voice warper, he struggled not to release his words in a tumble.

"Oh, oh yeah. Samantha."

He cast a glance at the star-spangled newcomer before responding to the Liafador's following statement.

"That's perfect. I'll do it."

He chuckled light-heartedly, before realizing that he wasn't aware of the last time he'd ever had a crush on someone. The ex-playboy was rather comfortable in the knowledge that he could get with any female, but was slapped across the face by the fact that that was incorrect. He swallowed, shocked by the shallow revelation, and shocked at his petty ego. He barely even knew Zicarra. But she possessed such good vibes, Assault didn't doubt there were a few other guys in the team that didn't find her slightly alluring.

@assault: "Really, I did not even have to beg you" she chuckled. "I was very proud of your performance in South Africa, and I believe your aggressiveness and resources will add you well". Xenon was always busy in Kalli or in Venezuela, him having a leadership position didn't seem fitting. Alex while an amazing person, and also a forceful combatant was still unheralded. Atticus was barley around, Jason and Maya were new. Selina was still learning and Homi was contracted. She and Sam worked arduously to decide a new leader of the TF, but Z's first choice was Assault.

"So how do you like this location?" her spanish parlence hinted a bit of sarcasm as this place was freezing.

@shanana:

"Begging would be unbecoming of you!"

He joined in with her chuckles, feeling much less tense. He cleared his throat awkwardly upon her appraisal of his aggressiveness, slightly embarrassed about how impulsive and hot-headed he could get when it came down to business. He supposed it wasn't that bad a trait, as it had served him well so far, keeping him alive rather than six feet beneath the surface of the earth. Feeling extremely awkward and exposed whilst standing beside the Liafador he opted to take a seat at the table, refusing to aid Zicarra in her seating. He was a gentlemen, but she was no mere lady. His attempt at assistance would only be seen as naive.

"Helsinki... It's original, I'll allow that. I spent a few months here once..."

He trailed off, regarding an old memory of his and feeling nostalgia flow through his being.

"...When I was... Younger. Good times."

Oblivious to any inclination as to the conditions of the temperatures, eternally warm by the machinations of the Peak Serum.

"Summit detected an alien presence in here a while back. Who was that?"

@assault: "Younger HA!" his notion caused the Malagan beauty chuckled again. "Just how old do you think I am?" She sat down beside him with her hands folded across her knees. "Oh..." she started, pushing her hair behind her hair, before lightly scratching the under-cut side. "That man, his name is Daemon; he is in charge of the miscreants you guys fought in South Africa; he wants Kari" she explained, taking a deep breath. "He also saved my life once"

@shanana:

Her reaction warranted another awkward clearing of the throat and the Stark evaded her question with what could be considered the agility of a peanut-butter soaked walrus.

"Old, what? Old?" He chuckled nervously and unknowingly dug into the very surface of the table with two fingers of one hand. He realized he was performing the action and stopped, firing off a glance at her and then at his hand. He released an internal sigh, Summit offering his usual sarcastic quips, each calmly cursed at by Jacob. "Saved your life? How is that?"

@assault: "I was documenting the origins of a virus, and "stumbled" in the Sahara; I was on thee verge of heat exhaustion, and he rehydrated me." she explained, taking a sip from her bottled water. "Tengo Pregunta" she said, shifting on the couch. "Do you always go everywhere with that armor on?" her eyebrow raise just slightly; since she met him, she had never seen him take it off.

@shanana:

Having witnessed the after affects of one of her 'stumbles', Assault knew precisely how dire such a situation could turn out for her. He regarded the information objectively, making a literal mental note of the Daemon figure via his AI implant. "Tengo Pregunta?" He didn't bother accessing Summit's limitless supply of knowledge, opting to let Zicarra elaborate. "Haha, it's kind of a funny story. The armour is, well, the armour is me." He paused, deciding a more in-depth explanation was due. "The armour is embedded within my bones."

Impulsive as always and spurred on by his attraction to her, the young Trinity Force member mentally willed his helmet to slide away, revealing his flawless face and pulling back the gold under-sheath so that she could recognize him completely.

"I'm Jacob Stark."

@assault: Ziccarra's eye's followed his mask as it slid away; she took note to the handsome man beyond the iron suit, and smiled just a bit. "I am going to be 100% honest with you" she said, pushing her hand in front of her lips to hide her embarrassment. "I do not know who you are" she said, turning red a bit. She was "incognito" when the Venezuela business broke down, and was playing dead, when the corporations were going at it.

Needless to say, she had to be caught up. "I have seen your face, I can put you in something...else" she said, thinking of casting an illusion on him to make him at least look less intimidating.

He almost gasped at her confession, his ego once more suffering a terrible blow, something he thought he was far beyond. The young man couldn't help himself, he leaned forwards a bit, lowering his voice slightly.

"What do you mean, you don't know who I am? Brother of Tony Stark? Playboy? Travelled the world a lot? Presumed kidnapped after surviving an impossible crash landing? I'm Jacob Stark!"

He immediately felt regret seep into his consciousness and he slipped back into his cold self, resentful of his shallow impulses, old dogs he thought he'd put to rest suddenly waking up. His stream of thoughts was interrupted by the Liafador once more and he experienced more confusion.

@assault: "I- am sorry Jacob, these last few months have been filled with nothing but difficulties." She could tell he was feeling some type of way, and in a really weird way; she felt sorry for him. Not because she didn't know who he was, only because he was so used to people knowing him and his family by name, he always expected people to know. Ziccarra's time at the "top" was only because of her last name, Knightfall; and at the time she had other pressing matters to worry about.

"I meant, I could put you in a full suit, or anything for that matter" she explained, turning the coffee table into a small chair. "I can cast enough illusions to make anything feel real."
