[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Hurricane Hawk transmits, "Good day Repliforce. How goes the day?"

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Commander Magnum Panther transmits, "Pretty good, all things considered."

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "All normal at the HQ"

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Hurricane Hawk transmits, "*Construction work in Background* Excellent."

[Radio: (D) Public] Knight Man transmits, "*A soft, poetic sounding voice comes from the radio, it sounds nothing like Knight Man* Tch, another rainy eve on the hills of Ireland..."

[Radio: (D) Public] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "What's wrong with rain?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Ti T'sang transmits, "May I respectfully suggest a raincoat?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Knight Man transmits, "I art not complaining about the rain, tis the only thing making this night worthwhile."

[Radio: (D) Public] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "then What exatly is wrong?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Knight Man transmits, "Hmph, I often hear-eth others complaining about their own problems over the public broadband, don't I haveth the same right?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "Then WHAT exactly are you complaining about? Somone over starch your underware?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Stalker Tiger transmits, "Probably being forced t' talk with an olde English speech pattern."

[Radio: (D) Public] Knight Man transmits, "For thine information, I wasn't complaining about anything. Just commenting on the soothing weather here in Ireland... and I'll haveth /thee/ know I talketh like this of mine own choice."

[Radio: (D) Public] Cam-Bot Reporto transmits, " ... ? What's this all about?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Heat Man transmits, "We really need to get Knight and this guy together. They'd probably speak such convoluted and archaic sentences that they'd knock each other out..."

*Later, Landon DeVry comes out of nowhere with his usual threats*

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Somewhere in this world Repliforce, is one of my creations. Admist the sea of people floats a single drop of poison, perhaps it is in the UN building in New York? Maybe prowling the streets of Neo-Tokyo. Regardless, it is there. Comply with my demands or it will be detonated."

[Radio: (D) Public] Time Cubist Psych Mosquito transmits, "Oh, you can stop now. They're terribly droll; they don't deal with hostage takers."

[Radio: (D) Public] Reporto transmits, ".... Great. and I thought it was going to be a quiet night."

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] ENABLED Whipcrack Octopus makes an idle comment. "And this is the person San Angeles gave safe haven to. If I were a voter in San Angeles, I would be highly apprehensive of my leaders on hearing that statement."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "We sound disturbingly quiet Repliforce. Attempting to devise some pathetic means to stop my attack?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Reporto transmits, "Um... they could just be ignoring you and hoping that you go away."

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Heilen transmits, "What's that, sir? Are you referring to something on Global?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "I will never go away."

[Radio: (D) Public] Psych Mosquito transmits, "More consider it the crook. You've fallen out of archvillainy chic as of late, I'd presume."

[Radio: (D) Public] Stalker Tiger transmits, "Well, my personal plan has been shot."

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Off-duty Ring Redwing pipes up, "I think Landon is bluffing."

[Radio: (D) Public] Reporto transmits, "I think we know that be now."

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Flare Feline transmits, "I wouldn't put it past him, but I don't think we should take the chance..."

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Off-duty Ring Redwing transmits, "Well, someone should ask him what his demands are first."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "Dr. Landon DeVry, known accomplice of Dr. Wily, is demanding copies of all of Dr. Sigmund Doppler's reploid research, or else he will detonate a mobile explosive device in a populated area."

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Flare Feline transmits, "He already mentioned them..."

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "We could just give him bad data, but that would take too long to cook up."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "It sounds like a bluff, like when he claimed he had infected Captain Iris."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Moonlight Kitsune transmits, "I assume our response will be 'No'."

[Radio: (D) Public] Reporto transmits, "Well, can you at least tell me where it is? I could use a story."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "He may simply detonate the device even if we do what he demands. He has demonstrated a lack of regard for collateral damage."

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus's voice, an unfamiliar one to most of the inhabitants of the channel, comes across the channel. "Specify document types. The research is very broad, and some of it is a matter of public record."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Moonlight Kitsune transmits, "That would be a valid assumption. Giving into demands will only spur more demands."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "I was sitting, pondering why my paste uses of this creation failed. I realized that informing them of its specific location was the cause. -All- of his data. Including personal notes and daily intinerary! I do not care if Doppler wrote bad poetry on the toilet paper, I want copies of -everything- the UN has about him and I want it NOW."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "But if refuse we'll have innocent civilian casualties on our hands."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "I'm going to randomly check north american cities"

[Radio: (D) Public] Grace transmits, "Mister Dr. Landon DeVry... you're the worst doctor ever."

[Radio: (D) Public] Psych Mosquito transmits, "Oh, don't call him that."

[Radio: (D) Public] Psych Mosquito transmits, "Use the proper term. He is the worst cybernetics student ever."

[Radio: (D) Public] Psych Mosquito transmits, "He merely happens to have doctored a doctorate."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "You are so quiet Repliforce. Odd, how simple it is to frighten you to silence.'"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "That's assuming, Lieutenant, that the esteemed Dr. DeVry is not lying through his cybernetic teeth."

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus speaks calmly, emotion never entering his voice. "Not all of this data is immediately available. Some of these documents are in binding at UN document warehouses. Others are missing from when Dr. Doppler joined the Maverick cause. There are also some documents that have been damaged or destroyed due to terrorist actions over the years. In essence, Repliforce cannot entirely comply with your demand, because a good body of the work is damaged, missing or difficult to immediately acquire. You would perhaps be better served filing a FOI request with the United Nations central office in Seoul."

[Radio: (D) Public] Psych Mosquito transmits, "Oh, accept your fate and fade into obscurity already. It's sad know I, and you've still laughs plenty in you for others, but your time is gone."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Rock transmits, "Hey, Repliforce, you folks working on DeVry's latest ranting?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Do -not- toy with me, Repliforce. You would -not- enjoy the result!"

[Radio: (D) Public] Psych Mosquito transmits, "In one ear."

[Radio: (D) Public] Reporto transmits, "Of course, they *could* be telling the truth. We don't have much information on Dr. Doppler either."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "I'm checking out San Angeles, and it 'looks' clear"

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus deadpans, still not allowing emotion to enter his tone, "I can tell you now, Dr. DeVry, Repliforce does not currently enjoy you, nor do we foresee enjoying you in the immediate or distant future."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Ten transmits, "Yes, Commander X. Some of our members are working on the problem."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "I sincerely hope for their sake they are lying. Or else."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Pah! I have no interest in your 'enjoyment' of me. I demand, you reply. You have hrm, 1 hour to comply."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Moonlight Kitsune transmits, "I'll check Neo Tokyo..."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "Commander Whipcrack, Captain Iris, are either of you able to trace DeVry's signal? It would be nice if he were for some reason outside San Angeles..."

[Radio: (D) Public] Reporto transmits, "And if they are not lying, you certinally are not being nice by not giving them a way out."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Phoebus transmits, "...San Angeles...Like Landon will be -there- again *snicker*"

[Radio: (D) Public] Reporto transmits, "Maybe that's why you are so wanted."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "Torontreal checks out clear."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] MSE XO Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "Good evening, Hunter Rock. We appear to be in a difficult position. I am neither capable of or inclined to fulfill Dr. DeVry's demands, because currently wanted criminals do not enjoy the standard FOI privileges of standard citizens. Further, Dr. DeVry does not currently have sufficient security clearance to access the uncensored volumes of Dr. Doppler's work that are held by the United Nations."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Is anyone investigating UN Headquarters in Seoul?"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Stalker Tiger transmits, "I got an idea."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Rock transmits, "Let's hear it, Stalker."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Zero transmits, "Then tell him to go get bent, Whipcrack."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Iris transmits, "*sigh of peaceful contentment* I can trace the signal...one moment."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Stalker Tiger transmits, "Heh heh heh. I'll give t' you over a more secure frequency. I don't want to risk im getting wind."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Far too often have they attacked me when I offered more 'fair' negotiation terms."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] MSE CO Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "I have expressed my inability to assist to Dr. Devry, Hunter Zero."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "Mexico City seems clean."

[Radio: (D) Public] Reporto transmits, "Well, you still had a record of being mean."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Stalker Tiger transmits, "Er...anyways, plan's simple. We say yes. He deactivates the bomb, and then we swarm him when he comes to pick up the data."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Rock transmits, "Too easy. He'll want it first."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Captain Phoebus transmits, "We could always give him fake data made to look like Dopplers' stuff."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "This is not a personality contest."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Stalker Tiger transmits, "Eh, with great knowledge comes a lack of common sense boss. I don't think he'd consider that...but eh."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Dawn transmits, "*Firm-toned* He is neither naive or stupid. These approaches have been done before."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "Naaa, it would take too long to cook up bad data that looked god"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Rock transmits, "True, Stalker, but we've gone through this in the past, sadly. He's been baited-and-switched too many times."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "Naaa, it would take too long to cook up bad data that looked good"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "I'll comb Asia, that continent is rather unpopulated, so he could find several hiding places there."

[Radio: (D) Public] Reporto transmits, "No, it isn't. But you are mean."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Seismic Earthworm transmits, "Exploding datapad? Big hole?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "Any luck on that trace, Captain?"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "the South American Cities look clean"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Jack transmits, "He'd know what an explosive strapped to a datapad looks like, and I don't have any of my trick pads handy"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Iris transmits, "Okay, I'm...not getting a trace on him. Which means he isn't in the field. He may still be back at his base..."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Rock transmits, "There's the possibility of giving him what he wants -- halfway. If we give him some public domain information first as a safeguard and a display of 'trust', maybe we can coax him into deactivating the explosive in exchange for the rest. He can't analyze the information that fast to determine what is and what isn't top-secret..."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Flare Feline transmits, "Landon doesn't sound like the type to give up his edge for half of his demands though..."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Asia checks out."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Captain Heilen transmits, "If we promise him the information, and keep an active trace on his signal, we might be able to intercept him halfway as soon as he comes out of hiding."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "The Americas 'look' clean."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Rock transmits, "OOC: How can you be sure that fast? That's...pushing it."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "I grow impatient. I demand a progress report."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Iris transmits, "Got him."

[Radio: (D) Public] Heat Man transmits, "Well, the Mets are winning against the Gi-gants in the Drone World Series by 5-3 in the top of the 6th."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Phoebus transmits, "Neat."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "What's his location?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Iris transmits, "Okay...check...the southern portion of the Eastern hemisphere. I'm getting a positive signal in -that- area."

[Radio: (D) Public] Heat Man transmits, "They're currently ahead of the point spread, and we're still taking bets."

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "It has been five minutes thirty-eight seconds, Dr. DeVry. That is not an adequate amount of time to ascertain progress. We are discussing the matter with the United Nations."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Possibly the Malasyian islands or Australia."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Jet Stingray transmits, "Um, I might be speaking just for myself, but what the /heck/ is going on?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "Excellent."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "I'll dispatch to that area."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "Dr. DeVry has threatened to detonate an explosive in a populated area unless he recieves all of Dr. Doppler's research from the United Nations."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Zero transmits, "I'm sending out Pi. Pi can probably find a bomb better than the Keystone Repliforcers there. Pi: Wak!"

*Some time passes, Flare checks the streets of Sydney*

You enter the Sydney - Eastern Residential.
Sydney - Eastern Residential

This part of the city serves as residential area for those of upper stature in Sydney. The most beautiful homes are here, designed by the worlds finest and built by the best. Exceedingly high-priced, most people can only dream of owning homes like this. Most plots of 'land' are really a part of the level they sit on, as they've had to expand to the multi-level format almost all of the residential areas have now. Still, each piece of property has room enough for a large lawn of grass, a multi-car garage, and other symbols of wealth.

Girl Incognito

A young girl, she seems about 13 years old. She's wearing a pink t-shirt reading: Free Jane 16. She has a walk-man and is chewing bubble-gum.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "That's a big area, Lieutenant. Hopefully Captain Iris can narrow the signal to one spot."

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "Sounds like Landon is becoming an old cranky man."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Jet Stingray transmits, "A cowardly way to get what info... Sounds like DeVry all right."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Scanning Australia..."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "I'm searching Sydney..."

[Radio: (D) Public] Stalker Tiger transmits, "Better that, than a goofy perverted old man."

Girl Incognito is smiling and sitting in a crowded playground area, surrounded by old men playing chess, mothers, and small children, she looks like most any other girl.

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "The world is full of cranky old men as it is already. Lead by Dr. Doppledinger the coalition of cranky old men will make our ears bleed profoundly by moronic speeched of, "Why back in my days...""

Flare Feline quickly jogs into the area, mainly trying to reach the outskirts of Sydney, having found nothing suspicious in the city. oO(C'mon Flare think, people's lives at risk here...) His eyes quickly dart around the park, the people seem pretty calm, it's unlikely that if Landon was by recently there wouldn't be so little tension in the air...

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "Do you think we can find a trace on the bomb, instead of looking for Landon?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Iris transmits, "I'm unable to trace bombs. I can only trace radio signals."

Girl Incognito continues humming quietly, she takes out a pair of rollerblades and begins fiddling with them.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Hmm, can you use our own transmissions to pinpoint how close we are to Landon's transmission?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "Locating the explosive device is of the highest priority, but will also be the most difficult. Ultimately, we will find the explosive by its traces. I would recommend alerting all populated areas of the threat and having all heavily populated areas cleared or secured by local authorities."

Flare Feline scratches his head, oO(Ok, I'm lost. I don't have time for pride, I'll have to ask one of the locals for the way out of the city) Oh look, he walks up to the Girl Incognito, hi Girl Incognito! "Excuse me miss? Do you know the quickest way out of the city from here?"

Girl Incognito lifts her gaze and blinks. She giggles slightly, "Don't ask me! I'm just a girl! *giggle!*"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Jet Stingray transmits, "You think the bomb might have some kind of signal you could trace? It would be likely for it to have one, since I doubt that Landon would do it manually or something. I would think the dude would use a remote signal that could traced, but that's just me. *long pause at Whipcrack* Riiiight. We'll just evac like two hundred cities with hundreds of thousands of people in them. That could take like a day in someplaces, even with 'porters working at their max."

If Flare knew Landon's profile a bit better, or even encountered the Doctor personally he might relate the girl's attitude to Landon's... views towards women. But Flare has little experience in either of those areas "Umm, yeah, I can see that. But I really need to get out of the city fast. Could you point me in the right direction?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus, becoming accustomed to Jet's sunny personality, continues without any emotion entering his tone. "Landon will be targeting areas in which many people congregate. Even a weak explosive in a densely packed area will cause deaths and collateral damage. A full evacuation would be infeasible, since the population would only shift from one area to the next, making it just as much of a target as before. Instead, we should put all heavily populated areas -- airports, schools, commerce areas -- on alert for a potential bomb threat and allow the local authorities to assist us in addressing the danger."

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Halo Hare blinks audibly over the channel. "What's goin' on?" She is heard muttering something after that.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Jet Stingray transmits, "Oooooooh! I thought he was doing the whole 'I'm holding New York hostage' thing. Never mind that does make sense. My bad. Your plan sounds solid."

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Heilen transmits, "The amazing Dr. DeVry has set up us the bomb, Halo."

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Sgt. Ricochet transmits, "...what?"

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Heilen transmits, "OOC: I immediately retract that. It wasn't IC! I thought it was funny tho. :D"

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Phoebus transmits, "ooc: *eviscerates heilen*"

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "DeVry is making a bomb threat Halo"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "Keep us updated on the trace, Captain Iris. As soon as we find him, I think we should be able to deploy fast enough to neutralize the threat."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Ten transmits, "Corporal Ring Redwing, I am sending a couple aerial scouts to help you in your search. Private Retrieve Pelican, and Private Snowstorm Swan should be arriving at your location soon."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Sgt. Ricochet transmits, "Where is this? Do you need help?"

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Halo Hare blinks again. "Aaaaaaah." Pause. "Great Frith!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Iris transmits, "*sounds preoccupied* I...gave you the closest trace I had to him, didn't I? I thought I did."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "If you can't get any closer than that, Captain, it'll have to do. Sergeant Ricochet, we just might."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Sgt. Ricochet transmits, "Roger that. Where to?"

Girl Incognito bl-blinks, "Is that so? Well hum..." She grins again, "I'd say the best way out of city is to go in one direction and keep going til you get out! *giggle*

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Understood, Commander."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Repliforce! I have decided to narrow the time. You now have only 20 minutes left to comply with my demands."

Flare Feline coughs and looks around "Well, do you happen to know which direction would be quickest from here?"

Girl Incognito looks at Flare with wide blue eyes, "Out?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "It appears the timeline has been compressed."

[Radio: (D) Public] Jared Kintane transmits, "Doof, you're too pushy too fast."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "I seem to be... lost in Sydney. I tried asking a local for the quickest directions out, but this girl seems to be a bit... vacent..."

Flare Feline nods "Yes, which direction is the quickest out?

[Radio: (D) Public] Jared Kintane transmits, "Keep that up, and you'll get nothing. Play your cards right, don't be hasty."

Girl Incognito uhms, "Up?

Flare Feline blinks "I can't fly you know. Tch" He sort of murmurs to himself "We're running out of time, we need to find DeVry..."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "Geez, what's with this girl, and I thought the Masters were unintelligent..."

Girl Incognito smiles, "Doctor DeFry? Is he cute?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "You might want to deploy to Sydney, Sergeant. Your advisor seems to be... lost. Help him out, and keep an eye out while you're at it."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Hmm, we must be getting close that DeVry has narrowed down the time. What can our interceptors tell us?"

Flare Feline shakes his head "No, DeVry, and I doubt he's handsome, considering what I've heard about the homocidal monster..."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "I'll be fine on my own, Ricochet, you should work on searching outside of Sydney..."

Girl Incognito blinks, "Oh thats -horrible!-" She looks at him, "You'll save us right?" She pouts, "I have a date with Johnny Cargin tonight, he's -so- dreamy!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Sgt. Ricochet transmits, "Roger that!"

Flare Feline nods "Err, yeah well we'll stop him, don't worry. We just need to find either him, or his bomb... it could be anywhere..." Yeah, like right in front of you doofus.

Girl Incognito puts her hand to her mouth, "Bomb?!" She squeaks and looks around, "I don't want to get blown up!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "I'm afraid the Privates are taking too long, I'm going to resume scanning the Victorian beach on my own once more."

Flare Feline shushes "Well we don't know exactly where it is yet, that's why I need to find my way out of this city fast so I can resume searching." Pity there's no divine sign to just tell Flare 'The bomb is in front of you!!!!' Won't he feel stupid once she goes ka-blammies?

Girl Incognito smiles, "Why not try walking east?"

Flare Feline nods "Think you can lead me out? It'd be quicker that way, and at least you'd be safe yourself."

Girl Incognito shakes her head, "I wanna stay here!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Corporal Redwing here, I think I've found something suspicious. Are there any Skylabs nearby Victoria?"

Flare Feline scratches his head "We don't know for sure where the bomb is, but he said it was in a populated area, if you lead me out you'd put yourself out of danger. You're sure you want to stay here?" Flare. Bomb. Girl. Figure it out already!

Girl Incognito peers at him, "You just want to lead me off so you can have your wicked way with me!" She blushes and looks away, "You brute! Go on! Get out of here!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "Skylabs, Corporal?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Time grows -thin- Repliforce!"

Flare Feline sighs "Alright, it's your choice Miss. But I'm sure we'll find the bomb anyway." He listens in on the radio for a moment, facing away from the girl.

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "Thinner than Sigma's bald spot!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "What appears to be a part of a skylab appears to be buried in the brush along the Victorian coastline. I see no possible points of nearby origin."

[Radio: (D) Public] Sewa transmits, "You don't have hair, Guts Man."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "It is suitably suspicuous. Have the area evacuated."

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "I'm an android. Most androids have no need for hair."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Roger that."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "I'll try to make my way there momentarily..."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "REPLIFORCE! RESPOND!"

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "We are preparing the response now."

[Radio: (D) Public] Sewa transmits, "*sneeze*"

[Radio: (D) Public] Inferno Panther transmits, "maybe they just don't like you."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] MSE CO Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "We have located a suspicious object along the Victorian shoreline in Australia. We have dispatched units to investigate."

[Radio: (D) Public] Guts Man transmits, "Mmmmm I just love this toast."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Iris transmits, "I've managed to...narrow DeVry's radio signal down further, he's most certainly in Sydney."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Evacing all civilians in the area. Will look into this suspicious object as soon as they all leave."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "You have 2 minutes before I begin detonation."

[Radio: (D) Public] Search Man transmits, "Stop waiting and just blow it up already"

Girl Incognito stands up and blinks at Flare, moving a bit further over towards the crowd, she doesn't really say anything.

Flare Feline finishes listening to his radio, and talks to the girl once more "Alright, forget out of the city, do you know the fastest way to the Victorian Coastline?" Flare'll probably be distracted for another, oh... 2 minutes...

Girl Incognito keeps walking, ignoring Flare for the moment.

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "Where would you like the item delivered?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Place it in a Post Office Box in San Angeles."

Flare Feline runs in front of the girl "Hey, this is important! I need to get to the Victorian coastline!" Gee, right when DeVry threatened detonation, the girl acts weird... nope, Flare still has no clue. But at least he's in front of the girl now.

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "There are many post office boxes in San Angeles."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "The central office."

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "Very well. Which number?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "30."

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "I will inform you when the item arrives. It will be within your deadline by 10 seconds. Is a contact present that can independently confirm the dropoff for you?"

Girl Incognito comes to a stop, smiling and peering around, "Ah such a nice day." She looks around, still grinning.

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Not at the moment. I will see to one."

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "Acknowledged. Package is en route."

Flare Feline blinks again. This is quite strange. "Err, yeah, it is. It'd be even nicer if I could make it to the Victorian Coastline to help stop DeVry." They're /both/ quite vacent, aren't they?

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "All civilians on-site at the Victorian Coastline have been evacuated. I am returning to the site of the object to investigate."

Girl Incognito blinks and looks at Flare, "Hello? Who are you anyway?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "I have composed a package to be sent to DeVry. It is my sincere hope that you have located the explosive."

Flare Feline blinks a third time. "Err, I've been here talking to you for the past several minutes. I'm an officer of Repliforce. Are.. you feeling alright miss?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Ten sighs. "Private Retrieve Pelican and Private Snowstorm Swan both got lost en route. I'll go help them get home."

Girl Incognito pouts, "I feel a lil under the weather. Maybe its my woman's period."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "An emmissary is being dispatched."

Flare Feline nearly chokes, being the great big easily embaressed guy he is "Umm, alright. Well, uh, sorry. But can you quickly point me to the Victorian Coast please, then I'll get out of your hair."

Girl Incognito nodders, "Yeah, its east of here!"

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "A representative will be present shortly with the information requested. The weight is considerable, but within acceptable limits."

Flare Feline stands, finally. "Alright, thanks." He turns, and faces the east, and talks into his radio once more.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "Alright, I'm en route to the Victorian coast, any update there yet?"

Flare Feline continues to listen to his radio "Ok... seems they've found him..." He turns to the girl again "Thanks for you help..." Flare no Baka... Girl=Bomb! Sheesh!

Girl Incognito goes stiff all of a sudden, she grips her head, "GRAH!!"

Flare Felines eyes widen as he sees this, and runs over to her aid "Hey! Are you alright! Hey!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "I've got a situation, this girl I was talking to has just.. well, she's clutching her head yelling, I don't know what happened..."

Girl Incognito lifts her head up, her mouth going slack. He eyes roll back in her head to reveal: <1> <0>

Flare Feline blinks Oooooohhhh shi---!

<0> <9>

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "....and her eyes just rolled back to reveal a 1 and a 0.... Oh cra-!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "Lieutenant, you must remove the target from a populated area immediately. There is no more time."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "Roger, there's only a few seconds left....."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Engaging DeVry! He just radio'd something to somebody... what the?! A little megaman fangirl just stabbed DeVry! I thought I had evacced all the civvies? Somebody get her out of here!"

Flare Feline without any time, just grabs the girl and makes a break for the outskirts. Hey, he IS the one who got second place in the Battle and Chase foot race, he's helluva fast! Yoink! Zip!

Girl Incognito has left.

*seconds later*

You enter the Victoria.

Victoria, the prize jewel province of Australia. However, this particular jewel will never recover from the massive damage it has befell. Though the people and reploids of Australia have worked hard and diligently to rebuild their war-torn city, traces of that fateful date are still apparent, as several burroughs remain charred hulks. The new opera house, a full three times the size of the original, peaks on the horizon, a sign of hope for humanity.

Dr. Landon DeVry snarls and lifts his hands into the air, "I WILL NOT BE DEFEATED SO EASILLY!" He glares at his original target and launches a sudden gust of freezing Nitrogen at her, "Take this you insipid litle bitch!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "A.. fangirl?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Phoebus transmits, "...Fighting for everlasting peace, I suppose."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "Lieutenant Flare Feline, is the explosive removed from a populated area?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "Just about to the outskirts..."

Look! Running out of the city in a distance! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a really fast cat carrying a little girl bomb!! Uh oh...

Ring Redwing covers her head with her rings, although some of the nitrogen gets past her defenses. Gritting her teeth, she dashes forward once more towards the hulking contraption that is Landon DeVry, as she gets closer, she begins doing showy hand-stands and forward flips and then rolls into a spinning cartwheel and crashing forcefully into the larger cyborg.

Ring Redwing strikes Dr. Landon DeVry with her Generic Melee attack.

Sewa twitches as Ring gets in the way for another slash, so instead she takes a small rock off of the ground and throws it at Landon. The throw would be near Ring Redwing as if she's trying to convince her to move away from LAndon. Why? So she can kidnap him dangit! :D.

Fusion Phoenix pulls up, banks midair tunrns around and shoots a low powered blast at DeVry.

Dr. Landon DeVry suffers through the slings and arrows of outrageous forture, then he gets BLASTED in the back, "DAMNATION!" He snarls, his eyes glowing, "YOU HAVE RAISED MY IRE!!! KNOW MY ANGER! KNOW THE ANGER OF THE DYING FLAME! KNOW THE PAIN OF THE FALLING SPARROW!! I AM THE RAGE IMMORTAL! I AM THE ANGER OF PROMETHEUS TIED TO HIS ROCK, HIS LIVER THE FOOD OF EAGLES!! FEEL MY RAGE-BARRAGE!!!" Thousands of slats open on his body, launching energy all around him, he blows up rocks, trees, wreckage, shoots birds out of the air...for 60.3 seconds, everything around Landon is LASER FIRE.

Dr. Landon DeVry strikes Sewa with his Rage-barrage attack.
Dr. Landon DeVry misses Ring Redwing with his Rage-barrage attack.
Ring Redwing deflects Rage-barrage from Dr. Landon DeVry.
Dr. Landon DeVry strikes Fusion Phoenix with his Rage-barrage attack.

Flare Feline glances back, making sure he's out of the populated area. Seeing he is, he sighs with relief, in the distance he can barely see the exchange between Landon and the Repliforcers "Phew... just made it, now to.." He glances at the bomb's eyes



His eyes widen, too late to react "Oh ---"


The bomb goes off, and Flare is engulfed in the explosion, being the person holding ON to the bomb at the time of detonation.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Flare Feline transmits, "Alright, I got the bomb out of the city... now...Oh shi---*KABOOMIES!!!*"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "Damn it. Who's on-site?"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Seismic Earthworm transmits, "That's not a good sound."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Captain Phoebus sighs.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Sgt. Ricochet transmits, "I heard it. I'm heading in that direction..."

Ricochet arrives from the Sydney - Eastern Outskirts.
Ricochet has arrived.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Magma Dragoon transmits, "What in the name of heaven was that?"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Rock transmits, "An unpleasant sound."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Corporal Fusion Phoenix transmits, "I'm on sight and ... OOOFFF!"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Captain Phoebus transmits, "Thank you, Rock, for the enlightenment. Hey Phoenix! What happened? You okay?"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Magma Dragoon transmits, "I would appreciate a cit rep, my radio has been off."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Corporal Fusion Phoenix transmits, "I'm good, sorta"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Captain Phoebus transmits, "And Flare?"

Ricochet is still some distance away.

Ring Redwing leaps aside as Fusion's blast strikes the giant contraption before her. Then her eyes widen as a ton of energy barrels begin firing in a wide barrage of laser-fire. Hastily, Redwing brings her ring barrier up, her shield of rings protecting herself from the barrage of blasts. The shield holds somehow. She lowers it cautiously as the fire eases up. "Alright, you naughty Cyborg, that's enough! Ring Trap! Go!" Taking a tiny almost invisible ring between her finger tips, she flicks it like a throwing star. The tiny ring grows as it nears it's target, until it's radius is wide enough to encompass DeVry's entire body.

Ring Redwing strikes Dr. Landon DeVry with her Ring Trap attack.
Dr. Landon DeVry is temporarily disoriented by Ring Redwing's Ring Trap attack.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Corporal Fusion Phoenix transmits, "... I Can't say, sir. It looks bad..."

Oh look! It's raining Flare! So to speak. There falls Flare's leg, his tail, an arm, another leg, and finally, his upper torso that still has his head and left arm attached, but is charred and twisted horribly, falls and they all hit the ground at around the same time. Needless to say, Flare's offline.

Sewa gets blasted back by the blasts and falls to her knees for a moment... she stands up and there is a small spark of electricity which flashes out of her body. She says, "...Must..follow orders...", she circles around behind Landon, staggering slightly but quickly recovering her energy...and then stabs at the good Doctor's back with her dagger viciously.

Sewa strikes Dr. Landon DeVry with her Circle attack.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Captain Phoebus transmits, "Get to him and fix him."

Ring Redwing puts her guard down.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Magma Dragoon transmits, "Is there anything I can do?"

Fusion Phoenix is knocked to the ground by the laser blasts. But he stands up, only moderatly wounded. He stubornly gets to his feet, and centers. oO(Can't let them mix...)Oo He lifts his arm and alternetly shoots plasma and ice.

Fusion Phoenix strikes Dr. Landon DeVry with his Antipode Strike attack.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Captain Phoebus transmits, "Yeah, don't destroy the area they're in."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Magma Dragoon transmits, "That was uncalled for."

Dr. Landon DeVry watches as teh rings surround him, "Oh he-" He gets blasted from behind by the Maverick, it rips open part of his armor, just in time for a massive burst of energy to rip into him, blasting one of his battleclaws clean off, "DAMNATION!!" He turns and rushes as fast as he can towards the water.

Dr. Landon DeVry retreats from the area swiftly, leaving him open to pursuit or parting shots from Fusion Phoenix, Flare Feline, Ricochet, Ring Redwing, and Sewa.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Captain Phoebus transmits, "I apologize... Head towards these coordinants: *sproing. coordinants*. They're there."

Sewa has really had a bad day. Has really really had a bad day. Or rather, it was yesterday. And she is still depressed. Sniff. Evil Rock. Meanie Rock. Saying he won't be her friend, or rather, isn't sure whether he'll be her friend or not...and why not? Because she's A Maverick? What's wrong with that? She was willing to be -his- friend and he's a Maverick Hunter. Sniff. She points her dagger toward the retreating Landon and then pushes a button on the side.. A big burst of flame is flung forward towards the retreating cyborg's form, "JERK!", she shouts at him. Sniff. Meanie Rock. Maybe he'll be nicer if she gives him cookies....hmm....cookies... Maybe he'll like her now that she stuck pointy objects into Landon as well.. hehe.. this is great.

Sewa strikes Dr. Landon DeVry with her Flamethrower attack.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Damn, Lieutenant Flare!"

Fusion Phoenix lowers his arm. and then rushes over to Flare's body. Well as that could be in any direction now he heads for the ... head. Whee. After a moment of deliberation he hooks up Flare to a spare powersource he carries for just such a situation.

Dr. Landon DeVry rushes into the waters on the beach, eventually disappearing beneath the waves.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Phoebus transmits, "is he okay?"

Magma Dragoon arrives from the New South Wales.
Magma Dragoon has arrived.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Dammit! I don't know! I'm an Aerial not an Engineer, Captain!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Fusion Phoenix transmits, "I am adminstering aid to the Lieutenant at the moment. He is currently offline but will probly recover"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Phoebus transmits, "...Is he in one piece or a million then, Aerial."

Dr. Landon DeVry enters the Underneath Southern Pacific.
Dr. Landon DeVry has left.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Fusion Phoenix transmits, "... Five pieces"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen sighs heavily.

Flare Feline is lying in five pieces, scattered around a big cratar-ish thing where the bomb he was carrying blew up. Well at least Flare was the only casualty

Sewa is a megaman fangirl doing a victory pose as DeVry retreats. :)"
Sewa isn't doing a victory pose. As Landon flees, she just sits down and sighs...sniffing slightly and sadly too. sniff.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Phoebus transmits, "...Big ones?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Fusion Phoenix transmits, "medium to big, yes"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Phoebus transmits, "better than small ones...I guess... Damnit..."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "...."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "Seal off any fluid leaks, secure his neural net to an external power source, and get him back to the repair bay ASAP."

From the North a large reploid in cloak and hood makes his way on the scene at around 250mph. Spotting a large crater, the hooded reploid alters course and makes his way over.

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "...*grrr*..."

Ring Redwing stands slightly to the side as Flare's parts are collected, she wants to help, but is afraid she'll interrupt the delicate process for putting his parts back together again.

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "DAMNATION!!!!"

[Radio: (D) Public] Sewa transmits, "So! what did you get Landon? *giggle*"

[Radio: (D) Public] Pirate Princess Tron Bonne transmits, "...more Toasters?"

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "HEAR ME REPLIFORCE! YOU WILL PAY!! PAY!!!! DO YOU HEAR ME YOU MISERABLE CONGLOMERATION OF PARTS! I WILL MAKE YOU ALL PAY FOR THIS!!!! *in the backround, 'And this is how bobby reploid moves his legs!'*"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus pauses, waiting just the right length of time after Landon to speak. "Magnificent."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "Whoa, what'n the hell did you do, Commander?"


[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Phoebus transmits, "...Whipcrack, what was the probability of us succeeding in the way we just did?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Fusion Phoenix transmits, "Flare should be ready to move soon."

[Radio: (D) Public] Stalker Tiger transmits, "Don't have a heart attack, old man."

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus pauses, waiting just the right length of time before speaking in that perfect, flat, emotionless monotone. "Thank you for doing business with Repliforce. Have a pleasant day.

[Radio: (D) Public] Gauss Coyote transmits, "ya know....I get the hunch that Landon is upset about something...."

[Radio: (D) Public] Fusion Phoenix transmits, "I don't think he HAS a heart."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!"

Ring Redwing notices Sewa sitting near the coastline, and once assured that Flare is in good hands decides to walk over to the young reploid girl and tap her on the shoulder.

Sewa sends a radio transmission.

[Radio: (D) Public] Rock snickers quietly.

[Radio: (D) Public] Pirate Princess Tron Bonne transmits, "...I think a vein in his brain-in-a-jar is pulsing..."

Sewa blinks and looks up towards Ring, "Yeah?", she asks of the reploid.

Fusion Phoenix has gotten Flare baged up, and ready to go!

[Radio: (D) Public] Sewa giggles. She can't help it. Really, she can't.

Ring Redwing smiles amiably, "Hi there, what's your name? That was a very brave thing you did back there. I'm impressed."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "You will pay for this...you will -pay-"

Flare Feline is bagged! Fusion put the cat in the bag! *drumroll*

The disguised reploid arrives at the edge of the crater, where he finds one totalled Flare Feline and company.

[Radio: (D) Public] Pirate Princess Tron Bonne transmits, "...so... ...more toasters or what?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus pauses again, waiting until Landon finishes, then continues. "I accessed Dr. DeVry's psychological workup and constructed a package that would bring him great emotional discomfort. I included such items as: copies of unsolicited commercial emails sent to Dr. Doppler's UN email account, informational reports addressing the need for sexual harassment sensitivity training, transcripts of public lectures made by Dr. Light and Dr. Cossack, holo-vid programming directed towards children about basic Reploid operations, which focuses on tolerance-building between humans and Reploids, and an autographed picture of Lieutenant Jet Stingray."

[Radio: (D) Public] Dr. Landon DeVry transmits, "Spam...he sent me...spam."

[Radio: (D) Public] Pirate Princess Tron Bonne transmits, "...Feed it to Guts Man... he'll eat anything."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "Our success probability was approximately 67.415 percent, Captain Phoebus."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "Sir, I am in awe."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Phoebus transmits, "Heh. That's great. Glad you're on our side."


Repair Bay - RHQ

This room is one of the largest in the Repliforce Headquarters, rivalled only by the Barracks, Briefing Area and Hangar Bay. This is the place where the wounded reploids come to get their parts replaced or for general tune-ups and tests. The latest technology is in evidence all around the room as programmed reploids scuttle back and forth, both on legs and some on wheels. Thre are numerous Repair beds that will enclose a reploid fully, and there are places for the larger reploids to power down until they get fixed. The room stretches out quite far in all directions, the only two exits leading out are either to the Laboratory or the hangar-bay sized doors into the hallway. The Repair Bay is extremely well lit, and has a definite antiseptic feel to it, as it is always emmaculately clean.

[Radio: (D) Public] Gauss Coyote starts snickering at Landon. as only a sarcastic coyote can. "And spam is still numero uno por los itemos de destruction."

Fusion Phoenix calmly walks in carring a large burlap sack. He then dumps the sack out on a med table. Yep, he lets the cat out of the bag.

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "You were sent a variety of things, Dr. DeVry. The package contains a variety of items we felt you would find useful. For instance, we suggest you reference the information titled `Sexual Harassment: Know The Warning Signs' and `Are /You/ A Bigot? Human And Reploid Relations'. They would benefit you socially."

[Radio: (D) Public] Pirate Princess Tron Bonne can't help but giggle!

Flare Feline is dumped on a medtable. Yep. Cripes, this is the treatment he recieves after saving the civilians in Sydney from DeVry's bomb-girl. No respect... Oh, and he's in five pieces. Two legs, an arm, a tail, and his upper torso which still has his head and other arm connected.

[Radio: (D) Public] Sewa Giggles some more. She already heard some of this but...ahh...

The octopus is sitting calmly in front of his console, seeming to sit back and bask in the glory of it all. In actuality, he is simply awaiting the first patient; when Flare Feline is deposited, he gets up and heads over to the slab she was dumped out on. His elite team of gumbies gets immediately to work collecting parts and assisting in lining back up the parts in some sort of order, doing damage assessments whilst Flare is equipped with a pain suppressor torque and a neurological sedative to keep her from accessing systems while they work.

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus speaks in a complete deadpan, no emotion entering his voice at all. It's as if this were simply a mental exercise for him that had no real impact. He takes no pleasure or displeasure in his tasks: he only works to demoralize the enemy. "Also, please reference the holo-vid programs `How Reploids Work' and the lecture notes of Dr. Light and Dr. Cossack for further information on artificial life. You should find that information very productive in your research."

[Radio: (D) Public] Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "Further, the autographed Jet Stingray picture is authentic and suitable for framing. Lieutenant Stingray was the winner of last year's Battle and Chase water races, and his autographed image may increase in value over time."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Whipcrack Octopus transmits, "I believe Dr. DeVry has ceased operation of his comms system."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "I'm not surprised, he was relatively heavily damaged when he retreated. I think the young reploid girl who helped us was able to do quite a bit of damage. I'm taking her out to eat some ice cream now. Be off duty until further notice."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "Corporal Redwing... who in the world was it that attacked DeVry?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "The girl says her name is Sewa. Other than the fact that she is a fan of Megaman I don't have much details yet."

The octopus, as his minions line up and start assisting, begins to toil on the feline. The torso is worked on first, the blasted off limb-holes being cleaned up and cut back to the point where they can be worked on. Life support is plugged in where needs be, armor plating being excised so that internal access can be gained. His minions take aside the blasted off limbs and start working on them seperately while the Commander addresses the `whole' of Flare, tidying up after the explosion.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Spiral Pegasus transmits, "And she... attacked DeVry?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Ring Redwing transmits, "Affirmative."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Heilen transmits, "Good to know some civilians aren't cowed by the good doctor DeVry."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Phoebus transmits, "Nice to know civilians can beat up giant machines."

Flare Feline is being worked on, whee. Pity everyone seemed to have forgotten that he sacrificed himself to save the civilians from DeVry's girl bomb.

The Commander is never real chatty when he works, focusing mostly on his task. The torso is attended to pretty quickly, since it's mostly whole, and preparations are made to start reattaching limbs. Flare's other arm comes back first and starts to be welded back into place, the many delicate connections being rapidly made by the Commander's tremendous medical skill. At the same time, he starts prepping the leg-holes to receive Flare's lower portion, his minions taking over that part of the task. They work slower, but just as efficiently, checking and double-checking their work.

In rapid succession, Flare gets put back together, Whipcrack and his medic attendants combined efforts patching the Reploid from five pieces to one in a matter of minutes.
A datapad is handed to Flare with a full manifest of the repairs, along with a bright violet sucker. "Lieutenant, you are free to go. Please avoid combat for 24 hours. Have a pleasant day."
