PostSubject: Hunt on Hymn Terminal   Thu Nov 02, 2017 12:57 am

"FZ-467, you are cleared to land platform 12, please follow the classic approach procedure. Do you have any service request?"
"FZ-476, cleared for platform 12, classic approach procedure, no request, out."

Aarin released  the communication button and looked trough the cockpit window. Hymn Terminal was a small trading hub, mostly visited by local traders, bounty hunters and sometimes large ships on long trading missions. As she entered the landing instructions in the autopilot she searched for a Federation Police's ship but couldn't find any, as she expected.

They are probably waiting for the last moment to arrive... This will let me some time to find my target.

She hoped to find her target before the Federation Police arrived to proceed to the extraction. As she geared up, the robotic voice of her ship informed her that the landing procedure was complete.

"Good, warn me immediatly if a ship from the Federation Police lands."

After passing the security checkpoint by showing her weapon bearing license, she walked into the Terminal. There was a lot of people wandering around or sitting at some bars/restaurants. A lot more than she expected.
She had almost no chances to spot her target in all that crowd. Luckily, she had an idea: She was going to wait for the Federation Police's ship to arrive and she was going to carfully watch the exit leading to the docking bays.

It wasn't the greatest plan but it had to work or she would have to track down the Federation Police's ship and destroy it before it would reach it's destination, whatever it was.

And that means I have some time before me, I can just relax and search my target in the crowd I guess.

She sat down at a bar and looked for the Federation agent in the crowd while barely drinking the cheap liquor she ordered.

"A new one, huh? Alright, let's do this. Start with the cheesiest line we got, ah? Then, if she likes it, keep it up with the cheese, if she doesn't, back down." Grahn thinks to himself as a new face steps into the bar fully armored (Excepting the helmet she takes off to drink whatever she ordered, looks like liquor of some kind) and sits down to start slowly nursing a drink (Really slowly, wow, what's up with that? She waiting for frie...nah, people don't show up to a meeting with friends decked out in full battle-gear...do they?). He pushes off the wall he was leaning against on the far side of the bar (out of normal visual range from Aarin's position unless she were to take an in-depth look around the place and be searchin' for him or someone who looks like him) and walks over to the counter, taking the seat next to the new face and asking for a bottle of spirits to whet his whistle. Then he looks over at the lady and says, in the corniest voice he can pull off with a straight face, "Hey there, come here often pretty lady?"

(His current form is a tan-skinned, tall [6'7"] human with short cut, mussed brown hair, deep brown eyes, and an athletic build with a handsome face, and he's wearing simple clothes one might expect a pilot to wear in their off hours)

Talon wandered into the bar as well, wearing an open leather jacket and jeans, along with boots with holes in them for her claws, her scaled suit only covering her chest in a bra-like manner. She looked around curiously, the "glasses" her suit can materialize appearing over her eyes as she scanned everyone before walking over to a table and sitting down. The glasses retracted into her face, the drakolith ordering a drink.

As Aarin was walking into the bar she already noticed that guy who looked like her target but was unsure it was him or not. While she was drinking, the guy approached her while she managed to not show that she had spotted him. He had simple civil clothes, the kind of clothes you often sees on pilots or crewmen when they're in their off hours.

If it's him, why would he approach a fully armored person, wouldn't he be more cautious? Or maybe it's a trap... After all, he looks pretty tall compared to what I expected from a Federation's agent... And stronger too She thought

The guy took a seat next to her, ordered a whisky and started to talk to her:

"Hey there, come here often pretty lady?"

This sentence took Aarin by surprise.

What is he trying to do? Maybe he isn't my target after all...

His catchphrase sure wasn't very good but she had to respond adn engage a conversation or she would never be sure of the true goal of that guy.

"Sometimes when I'm the area but overall, not that much... And you? I guess you are a pilot or you work on a ship if you're here... Am I right?" She replied while tying to decipher what that guy was really trying to do, flirting with her or trying to do something else.

(Actually, he orders a bottle of spirits, specifically brandy, not whiskey.)
"Huh?" Grahn reacts when asked if he was a pilot, then he looks down at his clothes and makes the connection (he hadn't thought of it since he adopted this form and started using it around three years ago, but the original owner had indeed been a pilot, and those were the clothes he was absorbed in), responding "Yeah, guess I am. How about you, you look like one of those 'space hunters' we always hear so much about, that right?" He asks (His voice has a noticeable, if thin, southern drawl to it) "Well, not that it matters much really. Really, I just wanted to be in the company of a beautiful lady such as yourself before my ride gets here. Don't exactly have a ship of my own right anymore, or this would be a lot easier." he says, drinking some of his brandy from a glass he carefully procured and poured it in.

(funnily enough, I had actually been thinking about the possibility that he could be the informant [or whatever, been about a week, so I need to do a bit of reviewing to remind myself of the full details)

Talon sipped her drink, listening in on the conversation. Not on purpose, it's very hard for her to filter her telepathy. She's picked up a lot of thoughts she'd rather not hear. The drink was actually partially to dull that. She looked over at the other two, getting more comfortable in her seat.

Aarin carefully listened to every word Grahn said.

So he is a pilot without ship... that's intriguing, looks like he have something to hide, or he is just lying to impress me.

Ghran's intentions were pretty clear to Aarin and in a normal situation she wouldn't even have responded to his cheesy catchphrases but she needed to know who he really was.

"Space hunter? I guess you mean bounty hunter... I'm more like a mercenary, you see? I guess mercenaries and bounty hunters are all the same to the public's eyes though.

"Federation ship approaching, a small transport, it's currently waiting for landing clearance.

Damn, one I have to keep that guy in check but I have to monitor the terminal's exit... One last try

"So you're waiting for your ship eh? How did you even got here if you don't have a ship? I mean, this is not the kind of place you go unless you have stuff to do there... Why did you even came here if you're not a trader?"


After his response, she would decide if she had to shoot him or not.

(I could totally go with the fact that he is the agent but Aarin's mission is to kill the agent so I guess she will fail then.)

(Frankly, that would end with me laughing my ass off.)

"Naw, Space Hunter. The GF's ultra-special forces group? Those guys...Like Samus Aran, that badass who defended Norion, cleansed Bryyo and Elysia, led the attack on the Space-Pirate Homeworld, and destroyed Phaaze during the phazon wars. She's a "Space Hunter". And they don't just hunt bounties...but, uh, yeah, guess you aren't one if you don't even know the term...not that many people seem to these days." He monologues (though his speech is quick, making his monologue seem shorter than it is).
"Huh? Well, I just hitched a ride a while...hold on" He stops mid sentence and pulls out a small device (looks like a cell-phone), and says "Well damn, looks like my ride is here. Just waiting for clearance to dock. Ahh well. Anyway, it was nice talking to ya while it lasted. Sadly, I've got places to be and people to meet that can't wait for a nice night with a pretty lady." setting the glass containing his brandy down on the bar, along with 200 Seguru for the bottle (which he keeps with him), and walks away, heading towards the docking area.

Talon listened in on the conversation. She didn't understand the distinction - why not just say mercenary?- but she didn't quite understand why she was listening in in the first place. She ordered another drink, tapping her fingernail on the table. Something didn't feel right.

(Sorry if I'm not adding much, just not sure what to say. I figured she'd just sorta stumble into what happens)

Aarin was now pretty sure that that guy was her target, she waited a few seconds and after putting her helmet on and sealing her suit, she leaved the bar without paying her drink (she wasn't going to come back anyway and it would all be over in a minute).

She walked behind Grahn as he was heading towards the docking bay.

I will be very happy to shoot you, Federation scum. she thought.

She slowly reached her gun, disengaged the security then quickly pulled it and aimed at Granh's head as some of the people around her

(Normally she would just shoot him right now but I have to let you guys a chance to react since I can't kill you)

(Actually, PKs [or CKs as it may well be] are legal, as long as the character's player is cool with it. However, Aarin has the extreme disadvantage of not have the ability to pump into Grahn planetary collapse level energy, nor the bio-energy draining abilities of a metroid, so is unable to kill them for ENTIRELY different reasons. Might be able to destabilize their body though. Reason I mention these is that they [or close approximations to them] are the only things shown to be able to canonically kill an X parasite.)

Grahn recognized the telltale feeling of a gun being pointed at the back of his head, and turns around to face Aarin, staring down the sight of something he could only assume to be a handgun, or some close approximation to one. "Now why would you go and point a gun at me miss? Do you hate cheesy lines that badly? If you do, you should have just said something instead of waiting and then pointing a weapon at me." He could tell that the person currently aiming a gun at him was almost certainly the same one he had been talking to earlier by way of the distinctive armor they were wearing, though ultimately he could only guess unless they took the helmet off for some reason.

All that being said, Grahn had always been one to fuck with people when he knew he was unlikely to ever again see them, and decided to say the one thing that would GUARANTEE him a shot in the face (from which he would destabilize and revert to X form, only to fly away and freak everyone out). He looks at where he estimates the person's eyes would be (based on the general shape of the helmet, and the face of the woman from before), pulls out his best 'scared for ma life' and 'pleading puppy dog eyes' look and says "Please, don't shoot me. I've got a family to take care of, if I die, they won't have anyone to turn to." Pleading with a sound that emulated the feeling of "all my soul" that people used to be able to pull off. He had thought about the 'wife and kids' line, but if this worked, he still wanted a chance with the lady, not a shot through the skull in semi-righteous anger("THEN WHY THE HELL WERE YOU HITTING ON ME?!" *BANG* "Well shit")

Talon finished her drink and walked out, following them. She sensed something interested going on, and had her hand on her holster, concealed inside her jacket. Most places didn't appreciate people waving guns around. But wearing non-Federation battle armor was fine? She didn't get it. But she sat back at the doorway, wanting to see what happens next.

"Please, don't shoot me. I've got a family to take care of, if I die, they won't have anyone to turn to."

As Grahn said his phrase, Aarin couldn't help but smile

Seeing a federation dog beg for his life, always a pleasure...

She was about to pull the trigger but suddently had a doubt. That guy was a federation agent, he surely had a lot of friends near, at least in the federation's police ship that landed, so why should he feel the need to beg for his life? And if she was wrong about him, the real federation agent had all the time he wanted to fly away.

She looked around her, as aliens and humans alike were waiting, terrified at the idea of a gunfight and she knew that the station's security team was going to arrive at any moment.
She emptied the whole clip of her gun into Ghran's head, trigerring an emergency alarm and probably alerting all federation troops near the station.

Grahn falls back slowly, his body rapidly destabilizing, before completely falling apart, the whole thing sucking back in towards its center and reforming as an X, shocking many of the bystanders horribly (as this wasn't exactly something that happened every day after all). As much as one can with literally no defining features with which to show any kind of emotion, Grahn displays an intense cockiness and 'I win' vibe as he flies in undulating circles around Aarin's head for a few seconds, obviously mocking her to the extreme, before flying away and reforming in a different body some 50 feet away (appearing as a beautiful woman with long black hair and voluptuous proportions, wearing a white lab coat). The newly formed woman runs off towards the docking station, with a nice little "SO LONG SUCKER!" shouted on the wind.
(This form would be recognizable to Talon, as this was the final form of "Rose" back when they worked together to escape and then save Treceran)

Talon grinned as she saw that form. She knew she recognized some thoughts in that room. The woman dashed forward to follow the X-Woman, deciding to help her. Firing some random energy shots back towards the assassin. Her pistol had a revolver-ish design, though the cylinder was the battery.

Aarin looked as the X-parasite as it was flying to another spot in the terminal. Of course she was pretty surprised but quickly focused back on her mission. She took her rifle and fired a few useless shots.
As the X retransformed somewhere else and shouted something that Arrin couldn't hear because of screams of some people around her. Suddenly, a shot bounced of her armor, making her loose her balance.

"Ah, shit!

She turned to the approximate location of the shooter and fired another round only to hit some civilians and a screen wich instantly. She started to run in of Grahn's direction (or at least, the direction she thought he was) while remotely giving orders to her ship :

"Prepare for takeoff, wait for me!"

"Fire at will!" shouted a voice behind her back, immediatly followed by the familiar sounds of a squad firing. Aarin turned around, firing a few shots back as her armor was strong enough to withstand a few volleys. After incapacitating a member of the security team, she pushed a few civilians between her and the security team and ran towards the docking bay.

She quickly boarded her ship and disengaged the docking clamps as she took off Hymn Terminal, looking to see if the federation police ship had already departed.

As the station behind her erupted into a chaotic mess, Rose made a beeline for the Federation pickup sent for her, taking no extra time or detours to arrive at the ship. When she arrived and tried to board the ship, she ended up getting stopped by a pair of federation soldiers, saying "We're sorry ma'am, but we've come to pick up a certain" before Rose cuts the armored man off with "I'M THE INFORMANT NUMBSKULL!" and transforming back into Grahn with a shimmer effect surrounding them. "I'm wearing a nano-film holo-disguise to prevent detection and make this all easier!" He shouts at them, managing to cut a rather intimidating figure at half a foot taller and being much more broadly built than either soldier with a body of pure muscle. Recognizing this form (not his pilot form, but rather a custom built body which he had identified previously before undertaking this job originally) as the informant, the two soldiers allow him to board before following, the ship taking off soon after. "Be careful guys, we may have some company on the way soon, just a warning. Keep on the lookout." Grahn tells the soldiers and pilots aboard the ship.

Talon could feel a few shots nearly hit her head, only to strike some civvies and objects behind her. "Really not the professional type, are you?" she asked, running after the assassin. She herself had to escape the security team, just because they only see two people firing shots at eachother. She got to the hanger, but it was too late and her new target was already taking off. Shrugging, she ran over to the place that Rose ran off to, which also happened to be the same hanger her ship was docked in.
