@cosmosis: Satisfied, Trinity nodded at the report thus far. She'd spend a lot of time mulling it over on the trip back, at least until they could get more. Somehow, she'd already began formulating her own theories based on the vague extant details they'd gotten so far. An inexplicable intuition from the experience at the station and....something within herself - the rest of herself, experiences since her conception. That same intuition suggested, perhaps, that she wouldn't want to find out. In spite of that...

"Get to work decoding the rest of that, or whatever, when you can. I'll handle the station." She reached out with her mind and prepared to tote it with them to their next destination. "Let's get outta here."

[Hehee, I think we can call that about the end.]

@cosmosis: "Maybe I'm still mulling it over," Trinity retorted in her own humorous way, taking her previous spot beside him in the cockpit. "I'm fine." As far as she was aware, conventional medical practices would be all but useless for her anyway, and she had recovered well. Well enough to remember most of what happened before her impaired state. That included the smuggler's admission that he had found "the best kind of something" aboard the station. "I want to know what you found."

  • Although she no longer goes by Malicia, Trinity still likes to refer to herself as The Destructor, claiming "Destructing is what I'm best at."
  • Appears to be developing socially in ways similar to a human person, even if slowly, thanks to Antonia. Still prone toward anger and aggression, she has shown the capacity for more. Heightened self-monitoring even without prompting from an authority figure (seen with Vel), and a degree of understanding of maintenance in more complex relationships, like her relationship with Liberty (not totally friendly, but no longer totally antagonistic either) display development compatible with human relationships.
  • Her speech, I've noticed, is a kind of blend between formal and informal, and I'm still not entirely sure how that works. Not really something I think about, but I just do it and just now started to notice a slight sporadic pattern.
  • Since her return to Earth, Trinity developed something of a fascination with the Superior Sapien upon learning of the events surrounding his fall from grace. Not the intricacies of his personal plight, but the fact that he, like she, may be prone to anger and reckless outbursts. And following the Justice League-MVP conflict, the anger or otherwise fear with which people regarded him. In her mind, she and Garrison Grail are alike.

@cosmosis: She awoke with a start and bolted upright with a short panicked scream. "What the...?" A cursory scan of her surroundings told her where she was. The smuggler, she inferred. Ignoring headache it aggravated, the first move she made was to scan outside the ship to ensure they were still in acceptable range of the station. With that ensured, she arose fully, cautiously finding stable footing.

She remained not entirely sure of the situation, but remembered only bits of her previous state - those bits indicating danger. Her body had adapted to and shaken off the effects of the neurotoxin while she lay unconscious. In spite of that she couldn't be certain just yet what from that time was real and what wasn't. It was an Imperium station - or used to be - after all.

"Hey!" She called out for a response, beginning to venture from the bunk to the cockpit where she assumed Daltar would be waiting, if he were present.

@cosmosis: Her every sense offset by the enduring neurotoxin, Trinity couldn't see Daltar reaching for the blaster, or even register its presence. Her eyes saw only Xiandra and her crude weaponry. Her mind focused singularly on the Ancient's words.

"Yes, fight. All the better when—"

The perceived taunting was cut off by a unified screech, courtesy of the emergent hoard skittering through the doorway on the floor, walls, and ceiling. Still under the blood's influence, her senses amplified, the shrill cries came to her ears as an amplified sonic assault. Unknowingly, reflexively she reached out, her hypersensitive but not fully trained mind linking simultaneously with the hoard over the entire station.

Every thing paused. The entire station held still. Silence hung in the air, belying the internal cacophony, if only for an instant. Innumerable thoughts from countless wretched minds, shrieking in a feral chorus. For Trinity, it was a telepathic assault. Clutching her skull, she doubled over and dropped to her knees, screaming, the station's ensemble followed her lead as conductor. The station erupted into a tremor for their sheer number, if not their volume.

Determined, Trinity fought back against the assault, unaware that under the effects of the toxin and her forced link, her mind had inadvertently turned on itself; the more she fought, she more harm she inflicted upon herself. Managing to lift her head, she shot her pinned foe an indistinct glare, features partially obscured by her draping hair. To her eyes Xiandra's presence faded in and out intermittently with that of the Delosian. Those eyes bore a predatory savagery, dubious as to whether or not she was actually seeing either. The assault never waned and the Destructor never stopped fighting back. An instant later she retaliated, attacking all the linked minds at once.

Where once the entire station trembled with their voices, there was a surge, and then...

Silence.

Trinity and the creatures collapsed at once, leaving virtual silence save for the thuds as some dropped from the walls and ceiling. Now free, the Delosian smuggler remained the last one standing. The only conscious presence aboard the entire station.

I was actually rooting for Overeem, but he seemed a bit too proud of "hurting [training partners]" and now I hope he gets his ass kicked in every fight he has.

Huh. Notifications are bugging again.

This makes for an interesting discussion topic. May offer some thoughts once I can get myself together.

Oh boy. This could be fun if I feel it out right.
