General Barker: Nightmare? im the only nightmare you need to be worrying about mate.
He cracks his knuckles and clicks his neck
General Barker: Ive had my fun here…
Then Maledict appears. Barker reacts in the exact same way he did when Ragna appeared in the command tent in Paris
General Barker: WHAT IN THE FUCK?!!
The General rips the control podium for the torture device clean out of the ground and launches it at Maledict
General Barker: AAAARRRGGHHH!!
Due to this sudden new appearance the watching Tengu’s have sprung back into action once more, storming the torture room and backing up behind the General with their P90’s at the ready
Tengu’s: General sir!
General Barker: Easy now lads
They don’t shoot they just stand ready and aiming
Meanwhile in Relius’s lab on Transcendence
Superintendent: Please remain calm, Sentinels are sophsisticated machines and never fail in their tasks
The large hovering machine makes its way over to Ignis, a series of long insect-like mechanical mandibles quickly fold out from underneath its front
Superintendent: A long-range weapon….
The Sentinel picks up Ignis with its 6 pairs of spindly like arms and begins scanning her over. Once it is finished it places her down on a table and begins work…
1. A very high intensity lase cutter is folded out from one of its arms, slowly but surely it removes a small plate of armour from her left arm
2. A draw slides out from a compartment near its “face” what is inside is unknown but with its “hands” it takes a large selection of bits and piece and places them down next to Ignis
3. It pauses for a moment and the lights upon it flicker oddly
4. The Sentinel then picks each individual piece and begins constructing a ridiculously complicated device upon her left arm
Superintendent: It seems to be going for an charged energy weapon
5. The removed piece of armour is then placed back on, welded, grinded and then repainted so that is matches. Thanks to the level of tech that Loyalists have even the most hardy of armours can be cut by its tools
Superintendent: Fascinating, it seems to be completed. It tells me that it unfolds from her arm by her own will and can shoot 2 different types of munitions. Hardlight, for mega accurate spearing shots and Plasma for slow travelling superheated projectiles. These can be chosen by Ignis and then fired on her own command
Roger (Crow): Whaddya mean you don’t know who I am? are you people around here really so damn backwards? im the guy!…the guy!
Roger takes out the picture of a burning heretic world, the words “I wish you were here” stylised on the front
Roger (Crow): Its simple, I burn heretics and keep order throughout the universe as a god
Then Yukari plays her part
Roger (Crow): Yu-fuckiiiiing-kari….doing that taunting echoey voice shit, good fun huh?
Roger makes his way over to floor mat and picks it up
Roger (Crow): Where ya hidin’ huh?!
He then grapples the book case and pulls to the side
Roger (Crow): One thing we know for certain, your not a floor or a wall…
And then, much to Kokonoe’s annoyance he picks her up off the ground and checks the floor underneath her feet
Roger (Crow): NOPE!
He places her back down and stand back, rubbing his chin
Roger (Crow): I was gonna talk to your sweet ass at the bar but you ran out on me! what the fuck was that all about huh?! just get out here so I can have a chit chat with ya, I don’t wanna have to drag you through the ceiling now by you hair, I can be an impatient man
He then turns back to Kokonoe
Roger (Crow): Don’t cut me that look, cheer up for once!
He brushes down his pristine suit and leans on his cane, patiently waiting…
Roger (Crow): Dun, dun dun dun, dun dun dun, dun dun duuuuun
