"Stupid Prim n' Proper." Alec mumbled as the woman walked away and slammed the door behind her. "Hasn't she seen my wanted poster?" He asked his three companions as he pulled one out.

Wow, it looks good Mister Alec. How did they get such a good picture for the poster? Shyfly asked.

He sent in headshots to the Bounty Office. Drawled Sandra, rolling her eyes.

Yeah, and it looks kickass! If someone's going to come after us, they should at least have a proper picture, not that fuzzy security camera bullshit.

So... What are we going to do now?

"My dear Shyfly, you are going to watch me work." He **** his knuckles. Not that he needed to, them being artificial, but it made him look cool. "Let's go punch holes in things until someone comes to stop us."

And no, Alec wasn't joking. He actually went on to punch holes clear through walls.



The Sakura was the biggest club on Rouger, helped along in that it was built from a massive underground cave that extended deep into the desert, and dance music pumped through it like a heartbeat. It was a popular spot for offworlders, and especially popular with the citizens. Races were often organised through the club, dangerous low-altitude aircar races through the desert, no holds barred death races. After all everyone needed to blow off steam. Hyun watched the people dance from her office, wishing that she could be dancing down there, maybe with Lokyan, like a regular couple, but then she dragged her mind back to the task at hand. There was still the upcoming meeting with Analdrun, the possibility of the Jellyfish's new corporate backing, Assassins...

The possibilities ran through the woman's head at breakneck speed. In her life, she'd been Homeless, a drug runner, a tech expert, a scientist, a field agent, a Shinobi, a CEO, and now she was married to the most feared terrorist in Hanar space. This politics stuff was truly not her bag. Normally her problem solving came down to one of three things, Hack it, Stab it, or Buy it, none of these worked properly here.

At least, the first two didn't. The folder on her desk had been left there by a Sukuu agent, and Hyun had been agonizing over it even before she'd left for Earth. Now that she was back, she knew it couldn't be put off any longer. If Analdrun was going to be building his forces like this, they wouldn't be able to train enough Shinobi to be able to keep up with him. As much as Lokyan hated it, Mercenaries would be needed. Personally, they knew some from the old days, but this one was on the planet at this very moment, and he was quite the celebrity among bounty hunters.

She took the wanted poster out of it's sleeve, revealing a handsome, obviously posed face with a large credit amount posted as the reward.

Trishka heard the screams from inside the pit.  She heard that kind of scream before.  She caused that kind of scream before.  Usually it was accompanied by severed limbs or broken bones.  Guess the "champion" wasn't faring so well.  Maeve and the vorcha were on the move.  She had to decide whether to continue monitoring them, or go for the mobster/CEO.  She opted to stay with the merchandise.  Sionis wasn't exactly a small fish.  He'd be easy to find again.  And Trish was itching to find out what was in that vial he sold Maeve.  And so she remained in the colosseum.  She saw the deranged man try to rush the two as they left the scene.  He looked vaguely familiar, almost as if Trish had seen him before.  But she couldn't be distracted by yet another murderer/criminal/a*shole.  She made her way back into the stands as Maeve and the vorcha locked the door to Analdrun's personal booth.  And so Trish watched.

As Alec walked off, looking for something that looked important, he noticed Trishka from the corner of his eye.

Hey, don't we know her? Asked Clara.

Nah, we can't, at least, we haven't crossed blades with her.

Maybe she's a bounty hunter? Shyfly offered.

"Could be, I don't remember everyone that's shot at me before. Nor do I hold a grudge." he replied as he eyed a support pillar, then punched clear through it.

I wonder what that girl behind her's doing? Doesn't seem like Trishka knows she's there.

Well, apparently there are ninjas on planet. Maybe one of them has a beef or something?

"Remind me to get in touch with these ninjas later, if this doesn't work, maybe they have something to offer. Even Assassins need mercs sometimes, right? Maybe I can wear a bitchin' straw hat and be a ronin or something!" he added as he punched another wall, an interior one, giving him a view into the arena.

Trishka sat in the stands eyeing Analdrun's private booth.  She kicked back in her seat.

"You know little ninja.  If you're going to make a move on me, you're going to need something other than that sh*tty little sword of yours."

Trish spoke seemingly to the air, keeping her eyes fixed on the jellyfish.  She had made the tail a while back, she was an Asari commando after all.  It was clearly one of Lokyans, with what the sword and everything.  Not to mention Analdrun wouldn't have much need for stealth in his own den.  Though being one of Lokyan's, it was highly unlikely she'd make a scene here.  That would get her and the rest of her crew here killed.

"So tell me, what brings Lokyan's band of ninjas here today?"

"Motherfuck!" Came Gaijin's voice in Asa's ear. "The Asari just started talking to thin air, I think Kara's been had!"

"Orders?" She asked, preparing to make her move.

"Do nothing." Came Lokyan's cool voice. He could see Trishka across the way, looking down into Analdrun's booth, like he was. "Let Ms. McAlastair deal with this on her own. If Trishka had wanted her dead, I wouldn't have sent her." Even as he said that, his teeth ground a little underneath his hood.



Kara was spooked. Nobody had ever caught her before, and the Asari had made it look so easy. "S-same reason as you." She replied, trying her best to keep her voice resolute. She could feel the weight of her Tanto on her hip, and the compact SMG on her chest. "You know as well as I do that the Jelly's up to something."



Alec punched through another wall, then roared loudly. So far, he'd been ignored, and he hated being ignored. He punched though again, and his fist came away torn. He looked angrily at the cybernetics underneath as the synthflesh slowly stitched itself back together. "Come on, ye wee babies!" He yelled, his anger punctuating his scottish accent. "Come an' stop me, if ye think yer men enough!"

"You don't sound so confident there, little ninja."  Trish gave a small chuckle.

"I wonder how many of you are here.  Is the big man here himself?  Doesn't matter.  By now you know who it was that psycho b*tch Maeve was meeting.  What you may not have seen was the tiny vial in that briefcase he sold her.  I'm guessing nanotech.  And if the jellyfish is buying, nothing good can come of it. You hear that Lokyan?  That last bit of intel was free."  Trish said, her voice raising slightly at that last part.  She knew Lokyan was listening, even if he wasn't here.

Her attention then shifted to that deranged idiot from before who was now punching his way through the coliseum's walls and pillars.

"What in the name of the Goddess's f*cking t!ts is he doing?"

Nanotech? Lokyan thought. How in the hell did he get his hands on that? It's been years since Big Z stepped out of the game, and he was the only one that had nanomachines worth anything. What's Sionis playing at?



Kara took the moment to look over at the strange man. She'd noticed him before, but couldn't place the face. Now that she heard him yelling and swearing in a thick scottish accent, she realized. "Oh no." She merely said. "That's Alec Morgan, the craziest, and deadliest merc to come out of Scotland. Or so he keeps telling people. I was gathering a dossier on him a few months ago, and now it looks like Analdrun's ticked him off." she winced a little as he punched through another wall.

"I'm gonnae keep knockin' until ye answer, ye fookin jelly!" she heard him yell.

"Is this all it takes to convince you? This one supposes some are impressed more easily than others..." Analdrun swept away from its viewing place, examining the dimensional painting on the wall, the shape of a human woman etched into it. "This one would prefer to speak with the other of its wishes in a more secure area...." Analdrun floated back around, coming to the far edge of the platform. With its sensory body, it watched the floor below be cleaned, hired hands coming in and removing the bodies, alive and dead. It had more than enough resources to create a robotic system, but the Hanar preferred to watch servants clean. It reminded it of how easily the sentient were controlled. "The show is only halfway done. Though this gladiator, the victor, has performed admirably, and will be rewarded, there is yet more this one would have you see..." Analdrun turned towards Sobakov, tentacles motioning at the Vorcha beside him. "You seem to accept this creature's affront to you with much ease. This one is surprised."

Maeve's lips stretched thin, and she eyed the Vorcha with impatience. Ka'agar could stand to be a little more proactive. "Would you like me to remove him?"

-------------------------------------------------------

A group of three guards, two humans and one turian, armored in tactical and medium armor, approached. They were hired mercs, and held the guns at the ready, caught on guard by the gaping holes behind and before the strangely behaving human.

"Sir, step away or we will open fire." Neutralizing electric rounds lit their guns, and the merc at the front of the trio pet the trigger with one finger.

Ka'agars eyes flared in anger at Maeve's question to the floaty jelly alien, and he turned that anger on the alien before him. Using both hands with claws extended, he shoved the man backwards, baring his teeth and activating his Omni-claws.

"You not hear me? You go, before I tear you apart!"

Alec couldn't help but laugh. "I knew if I kept knocking, someone would answer, but I seriously didn't expect some two-bit mercs with water pistols!" He kept laughing hysterically, removing Shyfly from his shoulder and placing her carefully into an armoured storage container built into his armour. "A guy that looks like me starts punching clear through solid rock, and this is the response?" He couldn't help himself. The Mad Merc just couldn't stop laughing.

The guards' expressions ranged from aghast to disconcerted, and the forward-most guard, his gun already raised, opened fire.

The bullet stuck Alec clear in the shoulder, tearing the synthflesh as the bullet disintegrated. The Guard probably thought it smart to aim for his unarmoured arms, but still it made the merc chuckle as the mangled synthflesh knit itself back together, a horror show in itself. "Now now," he tutted. "Since you fired first, that means I'm well in my rights to fight back..." he added, waggling a finger mockingly before leaping forward and clocking the leading Turian straight in the face. Alec heard his shell crack before turning to the humans. "Now. Fetch the man in charge. I have a proposition. If you keep ignoring me, I'm just going to keep breaking stuff."

Slaves clattered against the bars in their cages above, excited by the newcomer.

It was a resigned kind of stimulation, an interest that something new had entered the room, something troubling for the guards they had come to rely on.

Trensus spat to the side as his fellow turian fell from the madman's punch.

He stepped forward and his guards followed. It wasn't so large as the squadron he'd commanded during his time in Aria's guard, but it would be more than enough to take this freak out.

Trensus stared down the man and motioned to the turrets above him. "I don't care how durable that strange ability makes you. These turrets will open fire when you harm one of my own and they will kill you. For now, I've been holding them back, but I hope this puts things in perspective for you."

His avian eyes blinked slowly. "Only reason I was willing to do that for you is it's pretty clear you pack a punch." The newly-graffiti'd architecture had been substantial evidence to the irreverse. "So it's lucky for you that Analdrun's been recruiting. Talk to me, and I'll see what I can work out for you."

"Finally!" Alec said exasperatedly. "Someone with a modicum of politeness."

Well hellooo Sailor... whistled Clara, fluttering her eyes at one of the turrets.

What's going on? Shyfly called out from inside the storage compartment. I can't see!

Just stay there, SF. Sandra warned. There's a lot of guns here.

"Now," the mad merc began. "I'm a bounty hunter, mercenary, pirate, entertainer..." he emphasised the last word. "And since getting to this planet, I've noticed that the first three are pretty much in small demand. Then I hear that there's this cute little Jelly that fancies himself an emperor. A Yagh is all well and good, but he failed in the end, correct? All I wanted was a job. Give me something to blow up, and I can make it very... very... interesting. And I think your friend over there can tell you how much damage I can do, if the walls weren't a big enough example."

The afore-punched turian whimpered in the affirmative. " 'e bwoke mah jah, sah..."

Trensus's own jaw opened a crack as surprise overtook him. Then he let out a garbled sigh and scratched across his forehead with a talon. "You're expecting me to believe... you trashed up the master's place. ... so you could get a job?"

He'd seen better. As it stood, the best course of action he saw was getting this guy out of here as quickly as possible. "I'll put in a good word with my superior officer. If Analdrun's interested, he'll find you. Sound doable?"
