Do as the Romans do, or so the saying goes. When surrounded by cutthroats, murders, kidnappers, and other scum...

Vera appeared dead center in typical Neovian Rush Hour, midday. The streets were crowded with gems of of time: horsedrawn carriages to vehicles powered by chakra. People were making their way to their destination and weren't' really paying any mind to the typical sightseer. The hustle, bustle and carrying on served to be the perfect disguise for indistinct murder.

Yes, time was of the essence, but appearing out of place to the new Powers that Be could lead to an early grave. Neovian Central, was a cul de sac of an area, a grand plaza who's streets, side streets and alleyways all found their way to the outskirts of the metropolis. Her directions was wired into her soul all she had to do was execute.

Vera hadn't the time to register her metamorphosis, but she didn't actually need it. Thrust into the heat was where she liked to be, most times, and this was just another journey.

She took a look around the Neovian Central, no stranger to its hustle and bustle, but foreign to its evolution over the months she'd been away. She pulled at the cloak covering her shoulders, raising it to cover her mouth, as she began to move. There hadn't been any exact direction in which she consciously chose to travel, because her subconscious steered her on course.

Atra sat in his chair in the Kage office. His eyes were closed, his hair was smoothed back and his breathing was irregular. The chair was uncomfortable enough to prevent slipping of the senses, but comfortable enough to keep him sitting, still, and immobile so he wont interfere with his connection to Vera. But his personal stake in this, the emotions mustering up from whatever heart he had left could not be ignored.

He remembered the day like it was yesterday. He had received the order to orchestrate the first Neovian spy network in the history of the village's inception. Cosmic Awareness was big picture, Atra was the gritty details.

He was told to recruit individuals who blended in, and who else blended in that Neovia's underprivileged youth? Slap some gear on them and now they're genin 'helping' the village with small tasks like mowing lawns and offloading trucks? Atra was very good at it, so was Roldy. One of the best, he and his sister. They had a natural inclination for eavesdropping, causing trouble, and espionage. They weren't sold the idea like the others: Do something honorable for the village, give your family riches and glory. They liked causing trouble, Atra had to save them.

The crowd appeared to part around Vera as if she was a boulder in a stream, in reality she looked like a fish who knew something the crowd didn't, making her way through multitudes of currents of people, avoiding major collisions with traffic. The distinct sound of exasperated breaths and soft tapping of feet became more audible as she went north, Atra was increasing her hearing ability and locking on Roldy's trail. There were a few people chasing him, their steps weren't heard... but she could see them.

Through solids, through buildings, on rooftops. Some visible, some not. They were focusing their attention North West through a network of alleyways known as 'Slip and Slide', on a rainy day one could easily, slide their way all around the Neo-Nightmare's back alley. These visages were illuminated to Vera and while Atra wanted to, it was unwise to take them all out.

So instead Vera was gifted with the proper way to route Roldy's pursuers through the vast miles and miles of alleyways and hopefully beat them to the kill.

Atra provided the clues and the insight, Vera would deliver on her word. She was a woman that did her utmost to uphold that strict code of honor. She was familiar with the workings of the Nightmare's gutters and alleyways, but far she be from a dreg and their intricate understanding and usage of them.

It didn't matter.

Once she had the direction, Vera could cross any distance of land faster than most others. She began to move, trudging along in this form and these clothes that were unfamiliar to her, before her body became engulfed with the glow of her chakra and blurred from where she was, using her accel turn to reach speeds imperceptible to the normal eye and reach Roldy with minutes in between the deed and his pursuers arrival.

The innards of the Kage Castle possessed thin enough walls to where Atra could hear a pen fall in the basement bathroom. Coming from man who spent most of his time in absolute silence; years of tenure in the Stone-Chair wouldn't hasten his acquiescing to it's dreaded interior. Luckily his Celestial Body was almost in full effect. But his first training exercise was to be feasted upon by diamond dragons day in and day out, a little office-gossip was one of the smaller thorns in his side.

Clarity was doing it's job.

The ambient noises of bureaucracy dwindled from the downright noisy typing, faxing, filing and small talk to the immersive intricacies of Urban-Neovia. Atra was falling deep into Vera's senses, his eyelids still chose to show him nothing but blackness but his brain impressed upon him the sensory sensations of his chosen's circumstances. It was a chilly fall afternoon, 45 degrees at most, Vera's sprint didn't make it much better. The Destati's skin rose to meet the sensation of goosebumps like bubblewrap...

He even felt his hair bellowing in the wind. Vera ran like an overclocked CPU and Atra was tapping his fingers to keep the rhythm of the dream going. If fear go the best of him, Vera too would become compromised- considering the speed she was going, a wipe-out was not a good idea.

Every tap of his knee symbolized a run, a hop, a jump. His over analytical mind mapped out the fastest route for the both of them. Slip'N'Slide was a jungle gym to the seasoned neovian youth and Vera was it's gymnast. It was a shame, to the average mind she simply appeared as a passing wind.

"Run 30 feet... A fire escape? Wall run around it. Quicker and quieter that way. Steel overhangs. Somersault a good distance and slide down drainage pipe. Slide Under the carriage and hop up the alley walls. To the roofs now. No prying eyes. Stay low though... One, two, three, four rooftops bounded..."


Atra's left hand subconsciously grew tighter, if Vera had a blade to grip she would be doing the same, she knew she was near Roldy, she knew she was near his pursuer, like a hound the prey was near. But it wasn't the heavy footsteps she was after, it was the light pitter-patters, the exhausted child like breaths, the defeated stink of futile adrenaline...

Through the heart. And only the heart.


With enough velocity, surely a properly extended hand could pierce a childish frame.

They silhouettes obtained more features the closer Vera got. The boy was obviously fearing for his life, his neovian garb was torn and disheveled, dirty and smelly. His hair was a ashen gray, life in sewers and smoke stacks did its due to permanently cement in the culture of his business. He was thin, horridly quick and agile having gave his pursuers and endless chase for days... He had the depressing stench of death about him, he wished for a savior.

His malnourished days had skewed his wits as his rapid footsteps came to a halt. He found a dead end, a wall, no footholds or fire escapes to climb. He was sufficiently out of chakra to muster the will to leap and his pursuer was only several dozen feet behind him. There was another one too, approaching must faster, like a bullet sized hurricane.

The immediate threat a mechanized chimera from the underground was leaping and bounding on his heels. A fish of a person, wielding a large sledgehammer that would bash the kid to bits and bring the largest remaining parts of him as proof for the powers that be. His anatomic advantages made him reasonably quick and an exceptional bounty hunter. There was no blood-starved murderous joy in his eyes, just the focused intent of completing the job. And he was almost through.

Vera remained calm and composed. Even without Atra's constant directing of her movements, Vera was capable of navigation at such high speeds. While not entirely a warrior born, she was a warrior bred and built for perfection. If she couldn't use her techniques as such then she wasn't a very good super-soldier.

The tension Atra felt, seemed multiplied to Vera. She didn't need him to worry, but it showed that he actually cared about this boy she had every intention of putting her arm through. It was his ability to remain composed that impressed her, more than his compassion.

She bounced from the series of rooftops before, catching eyefuls of the target and his pursuer. The frail frame and gangling appendages showed how young he was, didn't appear a day or more older than Obi. The pursuer was a monster of a brute, weaponized for a single purpose and eyes only for a solitary function. It was like looking in a grotesque and twisted mirror. The thought sent a lone shiver up her spine.

I'll get him.

She relayed to Atra, pushing off the last rooftop and rocket towards Roldy with every bit of momentum she had built from moving at the intense speed. She blasted through the air like a precisely shot bullet aimed and fired by shadow sitting in his castle, priming her forearm for a deep incision. When she touched ground, right before Roldy, like an angel with glowing chakra wings, she hesitated none to reach her hand towards his heart with fingers tightly held towards to create a natural blade out of her entire arm.

She didn't exchange words. She made no motion to do so, but she stared at his eyes. Look him deep in his heterochromia orbs and portrayed all the information that he could possibly need to know. His wish had been granted.

The Spear of Destiny bounded off metropolis and hit its mark, dead center. The way in which Vera lanced the boy with such genteelness begged the thought that perhaps she had history put innocent unfortunates out of their misery. Or if she too was a killer.

Roldy thought his time had come, he leered into Vera's eyes gasping for breath not because his organs were incapable of delivering it, but because he was so damned tired. Why didn't he feel like he was dying? There were a few assassins on his trail but he did not take this one into account. Was he dying or would they do the same thing to him like they did to his sister?

Oh, it all made sense, almost instantly, when they locked eyes. They held such ferocity it was almost too intimidating to gaze in them directly. She came on behalf of the ShadowMan, nothing more need be said. But Roldy always had the last laugh.

"It's about damn time."

And the boy was completely obliterated into fractions of ethereal bits, Atra recalled his shadow, and him, via the transitive property to his office for his safety, with enough dramatic emphasis to make it appear as if Vera just vaporized him.

The assassin, a pace or two behind Vera slid to a stop and rested his hammer on the concrete. Part 1 of the mission was over, Part 2 would require a bit of finesse and Atra's 'directing' would just get in the way.

"That was MY job."

His words were underscored with the amphibious noises of bubbling and squelching befitting his appearance. Anger wasn't really associated with his statement, if Vera was quicker than she simply was. However...

"Who are you anyway I didn't see you at the invitational? Where's your brand?"

It was her time now, curtains up, center stage, surrounded by several more assassins who witnessed the killing blow.

I'll get him.

Atra spoke with his lips, he and Vera's beings were intertwined like a double helix, it felt like a roller coaster ride at some moments, and much like a participant in cinema at others. He severely underestimated just how subservient he was using this particular facet of his abilities but was elated that Vera wasn't quite keen at taking advantage of them. Once she stabbed the boy through the heart the Destai executed the horribly complicated maneuver of rising from his seat.

But he rose all the same, and as he did, wispy appendages were left in his wake to congeal and construct themselves into his shadowy counterpart Des'Noir who took his spot as Clarity's Achnor so to speak. Atra had all the confidence in the world in Vera's ability to extract Roldy, her combat skills were unmatched, but information gathering was something Atra valued a lot more.

There was a visitor that required his undivided attention, or at least the majority of it. And he fell through the roof like a gift from the heavens and landed on his toes much like a cat does in any situation when gravity and physics insist otherwise.

---

The boy scoped the digs of the place, he knew Atra had gotten quite the promotion but was still horribly underwhelmed. The customization of the Kage Office was one of those rumored stories children fantasized about seeing with their own eyes, and to see nothing but your day to day office decor really made the whole thing underwhelming. Roldy would much rather be in the Slip'nSlide. He tch'ed his teeth as if his chewing gum lost it's flavor and gazed in the Shadow Mans eyes, he too had changed a bunch since he last saw him but that didn't mean he was beyond reproach, no matter how much stronger the stories claimed he was.

"Where the fuck were ya man? I'd been running around starvin' for munths! Munths! I kept signaling for extraction but no one facking came! Paperwork cant be that tough can it?! Now they have my damn sister! My Twin fucking sister! That chick better be getting her back and not just my reliever!"


This was especially difficult since the rumors surrounding what Atra could actually do weren't exactly clear... It was like finally meeting santa clause only to have him take off the suit and be your dad, just as fulfilling but the magic had been murdered and stomped to a bloddy pulp.

Vera assumed the extraction was a success when Roldy vanished from her forearm and was spirited away. If she had missed, struck a different area, and actually killed him, Vera wasn't sure how she'd of reacted. Before all of this, she'd went on heartlessly like it was a natural occurrence. Now? Roldy didn't look any older than Keiden, and it may have been harder to keep her poker face.

Brand?

The term was new, foreign to the foreigner, and Atra hadn't mentioned anything about it. She could guess that it meant something like asking what company she belonged too, what family she worked for. If that were the case, then she supposed honesty would be the best policy here, and by that she meant to tell half-truths.

Casually, she rose her arm and rubbed at it like making sure she had completely gotten rid of dead boy particles off her perfectly honed killing instrument, "I was too late, figured it'd be good manners to show what I could do in apology." With eyes cut low, she turned her head to finally catch a full and clear glimpse of this monstrous behemoth. It stilled appeared as a twisted reminder of what she could have been and made her want to recoil, but she held it together better than well. Specifically, she looked for two purposes; to read his body language, and see if any of the other pursuers were within visible ear shot.

The amphibious behemoth of a man curled his lips inward and tilted his head casually to the left in absolute confusion. His eyes shot to his peripheral, approximately 12 o'clock, then to his right, and finally toward Vera's 6 pinpointing key places in the alleyway with his frog like vision.

"Manners? It'd be good manners to take someone else's kill?"

He gruffed, and tensed his grip on his steampowerd sledge. Who did this bitch think she was? She obviously wasn't a bounty hunter. She Violated one of the few rules that bounty hunters shared? Absolutely fucking ridiculous.

"And where's the proof of the kill you fucking amateur? You think we can return to Salem empty handed?"

If look's could wound this was one of them. Not only was their anger in his brow, but by the way his lips were quivering there was genuine worry. His emotions glossed over, he was committed. The girl appeared formidable, but he had numbers. Slowly he rose to the sky towering over Vera about twice her height.

"Maybe if we kill you... It'll be enough."

It seemed impolite to jump to conclusions. But the few seconds Vera had to act were slowly diminishing to moments. The alleyway was cobbled and narrow with this green roadblock obstructing her path, and by his resolute confidence, he wasn't alone.

Already, this… could be going better, Vera could admit. It really didn’t help that she’d pretty much set this hulking, almost 12 foot tall, gargantua off with a poor choice of words, and that she wasn’t exactly well informed about how these assassin’s operated. Add to that Atra’s radio silence, and Vera seemed to be up shit creak without a paddle. Luckily, it wasn’t the first time, and wouldn’t be the last. Vera’s recent past was marred with misunderstandings and conflict.

The space between herself and the monster fell deathly silent for a while when a look of confusion painted itself across his face. She knew what that meant before he even said anything, and used the time before then to do many things in the small amount of time she had to do so. She could read his eyes, tracking the subtle shifts in the direction those fish like eyeballs. Before she jumped to conclusions she could hear Mahk-X and MK both in her ear about being over reliant on her sight, especially considering her connection to the earth and the seventh sense she’d developed when blind.

Lightly she tapped her foot, appearing inpatient and in utter disregard of the mammoth’s disgust and aggression, sending small tremors shaking through the ground beneath her to get a much clearer map of the area. It didn't stretch as far as the main street, of which they were miles away from, but it gave a pretty illuminating view of the immediate area. It should reveal any hidden threats.

Finally, she steeled herself once he defiantly declared his intent. Atra hadn’t tapped back in and it was clear that she’d have a fight on her hands. There was nothing she had that she could pull out as proof, didn't even know she’d need that. He did reveal some key information.

Could she kill him? Sure. His back up might present a challenge, but it wasn’t anything she couldn’t overcome. Would she kill him? Probably. It would be justified wouldn’t it? He made the first move and she’d just be defending herself. Should she kill him? That was the question and the answer was no. He and his comrades were integral pawns in this mission and to finding this Salem, who must be a major player.

Atra, he mentioned something about a Salem, and something about a Brand. The brand is mote, he knows I don’t have it. So proof or extraction, my cover may already be blown.

The curse of being a soldier and not a spy. As a warrior, she’d response like one. She stood her ground, flexing her fingers.

“Who said I had no proof? You? Because you cannot see it?”

Barbed emotional lacerations cut deep into Atra's heart from a kid who Atra knew all too well. Obi was to Vera like Roldy was to him, a brother, a child and a friend. Roldy was nowhere near as tall or as defined as Obi, but they both had guts that could strangle mountains. If Atra's theory held true, that the arrival of Lumin disappeared he and ZK both for a few months, then Roldy was packed with necessary reconnaissance information. He seemed willing to give it, but Now he stood across from him grossly offended and handing the shadow man his report with demands.

"We're getting all the Ravens and your si-"

The crystaline floral walkie-talkie in his chest palpitated intensely, there was a message, an urgent one from Vera. Atra prayed she didn't kill anyone. A proper spy used his enemies for cover.

Quote:

He rose out of the sympathy pit, channeling the bond he and Roldy shared to sped up his thought process leaps and bounds. Vera was in a bind, which would be easily solved once she showed her dedication. Let's hope...

Salem... A witch hunt eh? Only select people are authorized to participate.

"What does the Brand look like? Your pursuers any unique markings?"

Roldy knew when Atra asked a question he needed answers, the speed of his delivery backed by the smothering implication of urgency begged results. Now.

I almost was forced to kick dust on my bonfire of a tantrum once his eyes narrowed to slits, closing the shutters to open concentration in the brain. If this was the extraction mission I'd been waiting two months for, then I'd better commit if I was going to get my sister back. We're twins, it's different than cousins or friends.

My gaze shot to my left at that damned glowy pyramid, every time it's eerie countenance illuminated my fucking peepers I could see her. Ravyn looking all serious and shit, giving those Witch Hunters hell. Suffering, tortured. Nostalgia bombarded my brain with grief making visions most grotesque, I shook my head violently and became the only man I ever looked up to. The Shadow Man.

I put on the same face the Atra, maybe it could help me recall anything those few weeks spent on an empty stomach and a dry tongue.

When I did have the balls to spy on my hunters, they weren't doing a good job to hide their affiliation with one another. They wore it with pride, much more pride than our coveted Neo-Nightmare Symbol

"Yeah yeah, they turned the Neo-Nightmare symbol on it's head to make it look like an 8, bisected it with a horizontal line and adorned it with swords. Real old school mideveal shit. The high ranking ones ha-"

My description was pretty exhaustive, packed with detail, I don't know why The Shadow wanted it. Maybe it had something to do with that glowy thing in his chest that made him tune out of my little rant.

One ear was tuned into Roldy's artistic description of our enemies emblem the other was tapping into Vera's vicissitude. That pink mass in between Atra's ears was mentally deducing what this brand actually looked like. Normally Atra would just siphon Roldy's memories, but the kid was malnourished, the process could kill him. So he had to do it old school. Luckily, a member of the Ravens had to have an uncanny photographic memory and have a proportionate intelligence quotient.

Vera, don't wince or even shudder. This is going to feel strange. You have ID, on your leg.

Atra drew breath, once again unifying he and Vera as one body. A tingling burning sensation etched itself onto Vera's calf muscle. Akin to a tattoo, this scraping needle like process drew her flesh through a sewing machine, and on it's beautiful surface now rested proof of her affiliation with her enemies. Now it was time to wait and see if it worked, or Atra would have to pull Vera out and suffer the consequences.
