>Two young boys haphazardly pull a case up a flight of stairs.

"Larry, it's like no place you've ever been in your whole life. . ."

>The boys finish lifting the case up, ending up in a landing area.

". . .first thing you gotta remember about Dreamville is to pace yourself. This is a mistake a lot of first timers make. . ."

>The boys start dragging the case towards a room.

". . .they've got all these unbelievable rides and cool stuff to do. Try to do it all at once and you'll be waking up like a loser by lunchtime!"

>The boys drag the case into a bedroom, flipping it onto its side.

"Number two. Don't eat just before you go in the Dream Pod."

"Un. . ."

>The mascot tries the same motion as before, but gives up when it seems to realise that trick won't work, and then looks around for a second.

>Seeing no other option, the mascot does a clap, then spins and disappears, being replaced a few seconds later by the woman from the poster, who calmly looks at Orion.

"Oh, hello, so you're the one Dreamsie picked out."

"Shhhhhh, I'm not meant to be outside of my prep room currently."

>The woman puts a finger to her lips, taking it down just after.

"Dreamsie just switched places with me for a moment, I'm Aurora. . ."

>Aurora looks at Orion, confused for a moment, a small wing coming out from behind her head as if the emphasise the point.

"Do you not recognise me? I'm pretty famous, you know, I've even sung songs for Japanese animation shows. . ."

>Aurora shrugs.

"Not that it matters, what matters is I need your help."

"Hey! I know your voice! You did the opening for Uirusukorekutā koppureboryūshonzu!"

>He quickly looks around, looking to see if Madeleine has returned yet to point out the singer. Not seeing her, he turns his attention back on Aurora.

"What do you need help with? Is this some kind of promotional thing?"

"As I thought."

>Aiden lowers his hand, placing it back in his jeans pockets as he looks over to Stella standing beside him.

"I gained his Fissure technique, and everything else he had."

>Aiden then walks over to the test dummy - seeing no signs of direct slicing. No directional carving, no uneven distribution of mass along the lacerated edges. Simply an entirely clean cut surface - on both ends.

>As Stella walks up beside him, she crosses her arms as she inspects the bisected test dummy.

["You fought well. I'm impressed."]

>Silent, Himeko then mutters to herself as she grabs his hand and pulls herself up fully onto her feet - now standing up properly. Still embarrassed, Himeko crosses her arms and looks off to the side - clearly irritated.

["You are demeaning me with your mockery, Narukami."]

>Shirai then reaffirms his statement, saying:

["Were you as weak as you believe yourself to be in this moment? I would've defeated you with the air pressure from my strikes and nothing more. Your ability to withstand strikes from me is indicative of your skill in force reinforcement."]

>Surprised by Shirai's statement, Himeko then looks at him with curiosity - her eyes narrowing as she does so.

>Nearby, MRD agents are looking on in bewilderment, confused by the figure's arrival.

>Vulcan becomes more erratic, but is more focused on the existential nature of his situation. As Paladin continues to walk forward - he further presses Vulcan on the reality of his situation; attempting to nudge him towards standing down peacefully.

"You were a victim of a madman's experiments. The original Vulcan died - and you were created as a failsafe. I know that's not what you want to hear, Vulcan, but I won't lie to you. I won't pretend that everything is going to work itself out magically."

>Vulcan is still distraught, but now acknowledges Paladin's words.

"Besides, I have no reason to lie to you about that. The MRD have a post-op report on the original Vulcan's death, right in their core files. They'll show it to you, and the recorded evidence."

>Looking around at all of the nearby bystanders, Paladin then states:

"It's not too late to stop this, Vulcan. You're not the original - and you won't be charged for his actions. You just need to work with me. I can help you figure this out."

>Vulcan, still in his earth rock cage, presses his hands to the makeshift rock bars as he says:

"Nice job there. You're really starting to get the hang of this."

"You too, Andromeda."

"Why haven't they attacked us before? You would think for an organization as coordinated and powerful as Aletheia are - they would have already acted by now?"

>Mosaic looks at Andromeda for a moment, before he responds.

"From what we've been told, Aletheia are more of a bureacratic organization than a freeform militant sorcerer group."

>Andromeda speaks up.

"That is to say, they seem to have a chain of command. A core protocol approach that they adhere to in most situations."

>Paladin then nods as he starts to think again. After a few moments he then states:

"The ways of divination are esoteric, and not always reliant on magic, often times the future of an individual is not divined through arcane means, but instead by understanding the movement of their spheres." ~Head Seer of the Department of Mysticism, Earth-2
>Date: September 23rd, 2017
>Location: Manhattan, New York City
>Time: 11:30am

>On an unimportant corner of a busy street of the big apple, a lone tent interrupts the flow of people going about their day, its dark colours and star patterns making it look like it could easily fit in with a circus if not for it being alone.

>The owner of the tent, a woman using an old crate of some kind to grant herself some extra height over the crowd, also looks like the type to fit in with carnies, with an outfit that almost appears to check every possible box for a performer wishing to create an image of being a witch.

>With a dramatic flourish, the woman clicks and summons a trail of small sparkles that look like stars, earnign a reaction from the crowd.

"Welcome! Welcome! I am the great magus Sybillus! Trained in the ancient mystic arts by ancient masters from near and from beyond our stars! Capable of reading the fate of any being with a mere glance! Enchanter of-"

>The speech is interrupted as a cop car screeches to a halt behind the crowd, and a police officer steps out.

"No Isaac. They're sending people no matter what. And knowing Ceri, she would prefer to be informed ahead of time rather than taken by surprise."

"You might also want to mention it to Aiden and Stella. Aletheia isn't going to just stop. They're massive. If a group falls, they'll send more. This is something the Earth is going to have to deal with as well."

"I was agreeing with you, Steph."

>Opening his eyes again, he then states:

"I might as well then, though I'll wait for the most opportune time to inform them. I can sense that they're all a bit preoccupied at the moment."

"Where did these people even come from, Commander?!"

>A Shard Lieutenant asks, as he manifests a sword in front of him - attacking the robot humanoids that are swarming him.

"Damned machines! They're swarming in like pests!"

"…..So how are you going to put all of these together? Thulcandran technology isn't exactly designed to interface with supernatural energies - especially those belonging to magic."

>Mosaic nods at Samael, while making a pulling motion with his hand - seemingly grabbing at something invisible and pulling it out into existence. In that single arm movement, Mosaic materializes Ennoia.

"There we go."

>Holding Ennoia in his left hand, Mosaic looks over the large, seemingly technological broadsword laying there on the table.

>Surprised, Samael walks up to the sword, attempting to pick it up. However, he cannot lift it even a centimeter above the table.

"What the?"

>Mosaic then walks up to the table and effortlessly picks up the sword with his right hand.

"Just as I thought. A soul bind."

"We're trying to find everything we can about the Tasogares and their current sightings, Ryozo. Once we find a trail, we'll let you know."

>Nodding while still meditating, Shirai responds by stating:

"I understand, Jack. Thank you."

>Suddenly, Mosaic appears in the hangar bay of the base - holding both Ennoia and Durandal in each hand.

"Hey guys, sorry I was late. I had to do some crafting, as you can see."

"What the…."

"…..Samurai armor?"

"I had a friend of mine create something for you, as a request from me. It's a magical armor, designed to help you further refine and focus your magical abilities."

"Left to their own devices, the sapient and the sound continue to reject their clear evolutionary path."

>The bio-mechanical form of the android Eidolus then reaches the edge of the moon's clifside - now standing over a large chasm on the lunar surface. Placing one of his metallic gauntlets on his synthetic skin, he then gives a light scoff of amusement.

"Were that the choice remained difficult, your reluctance could be understood. But there is so much that you collectively refuse to embrace."

>Holding his hands out - Eidolus then slowly makes a crushing motion with his fist, encompassing the view of the Earth before him.

"In certain occasions, sacrifices are made for the greater good of all mankind."

"Metal alloy-reinforced bio-mechanical androids. Capable of utilizing Meta-Human abilities, psionics and possibly even magitek? Impressive…."

>As the Magitek troopers continue to bring up information at their computers in the command center, Kagemusha thinks to himself:

{"They would work as more appropriate guards, assuming they can be given human appearances."}

>At the same time, a large screen at the side of the room details the progress in converting most of Eukaryon's remaining wealth and resources to the Seishin Corporation - the public facing company owned and operated by the Tasogare family.

"In terms of net capital and equivalent currency in U.S. dollar denominations - how much capital was kept by Eukaryon in the form of both currency and assets?"

>One of the magitek troopers working at her desk speaks up immediately.

>Slightly wincing in pain, Akito then opens his eyes - feeling magical energy course through them. Out loud, he mutters a single sentence, barely audible to anyone, even himself.

["….I will avenge you mother."]

>After a few moments, the doors to the throne room open, as Asami and Isamu walk into the room. Already sensing their presence and their intentions, Akito remains with his back facing them as he crosses his arms.

["You plan to draw them out, older brother? Omnius, Speedrunner and their Meta-Human enforcement organization? The MRD?"]

>Akito nods slowly as he walks up to his throne and then stands in front of it, considering his next response. He then speaks up, answering his younger sister's question.

["The initial plan was insufficient for our purposes. Attempting to cultivate strength from the Meta-Humans is too costly and time consuming. It is better to subjugate the existing demonstrations of strength."]

>Making a gesture with his hand, Akito then whispers an inaudible incantation. A series of powerful mystical flames then appear - as a familiar figure hovers through the air.

["Before you ask, it is not him. Merely a perfect facsimile - though lacking something immaterial. I do not know what it is, exactly, but it makes him merely a copy of his original counterpart."]

>The copy of Maximus continues to hover in the air beside Akito, as Akito then assumes the throne, sitting in place.

{"All of this. Worthless! The effort. The time. The planning. All of it for naught! This cannot stand! It cannot stand!"}

>Angrily pounding the lunar dirt below him, Ouranos then screams - using his suit's air supply to audibly scream. After a few seconds of shouting, Ouranos then lowers his head in defeat.

{"All of this, for nothing. Is this how my legacy is written? Etched in a million plumes of dust? As hollow and empty as this infernal celestial satellite?"}

>Suddenly, a voice from behind Ouranos speaks - and the familiarity of the voice causes his heart to be immediately gripped by fear.

"Oh, I wouldn't say that, creator."

>Smiling, Eidolus then slowly pushes back against the magical construct, exerting more and more pressure before completely overpowering Ouranos. The force of the strength exertion from Eidolus is enough to send Ouranos flying backwards. As he lands on the lunar dirt below, he then looks up to see an entire army of Eidolus androids standing above him.

"….You were the one who took them!"

>Ouranos says, slowly turning around and attempting to take in the sight of all the androids surrounding him.

"While you were the one who denied them their purpose. Attempted to deny me my purpose."

>Looking up, Ouranos then sees the image of Eidolus hovering above him.

"I do not wish to harm humanity - merely guide them along the right evolutionary path. But I cannot allow your deluded machinations to impede them any longer."

>Holding out a finger, Eidolus instantaneously generates a massive surge of magical energy - condensed enough to outmatch nearly any spell that Ouranos knows.

>The thudding sound gets louder and more frenetic in its frequency - seemingly converging on a fixed location. The edge of the corridor leading towards a larger part of the castle is then suddenly inundated with a massive amount of wind.


>A human voice can be heard from the empty hallway, as the sounds get even louder.

>Mechanicus is there in his armor, looking at the unconscious body of Saturnus. Beside him is Hyperia - who is crossing her arms as she looks over the man with her X-Ray vision.

"I can't see anything wrong with his spinal cord. All his vertebrae are intact, same with his discs. None of them are herniated."

>Taking Hyperia's words into consideration, Mechanicus then gets out his Quantum Tuner, the wand-looking device that Chronarchs are issued.

>After performing a few scans of the body, he looks at the results on the tuner's holographic display.

"Strange. His neural patterns aren't in sync. Brain activity shows a marked difference around the right pre-frontal cortex. Hypothalamus activity also seems to be suppressed. It's like he's….a different person."

>Mosaic then reaches the table where they're analyzing Saturnus - causing Hyperia to nod in his direction.

"So, you're still having trouble figuring out why his neural patterns look different?"

>Mechanicus nods, looking at the interface of the Quantum Tuner as he speaks.

"Normally, psionic alterations to a person's brain should leave some sort of a trace. However, I can't pinpoint any minute changes in psionic energy discharging that could've occurred here. It's almost as if his mind was completely transformed with some other method."

>Mosaic looks at Mechanicus for a moment as he replies.

"That's because your hunch is correct. Kagemusha likely used magic on him after he was downed, and judging by the video footage that Chimera and Fugue gave you? There's only one possible point where he could've done this."

>Mechanicus nods grimly as he reaches the only logical conclusion.

"So we're gonna be attacked on all fronts by some glorified samurai and his army of sorcerer ninjas? Great. Just what I needed this year."

"If it's any consolation, Phoebe. I believe they'll concentrate their focus on Sanctuary City. It's where the largest concentration of Meta-Human vigilantes reside. Including Aiden."

"What, you're trying to look pretty for the Director? We're not here to see him."

"Ohh~ Touched a nerve~?"

>Miranda allows the term to marinate in her mind for a few moments - basking in the relief that comes from a simple name - a designation for what she's been feeling for years.

"…..At least I know there's something to it. This…..'Siren' nature…..Is this the reason why I was born with my telepathy? While Marek and Jakob weren't?"

>Aiden nods.

"Assuming my guess is correct, then yes. You likely have the psionic imprint, just as Aunt Ophelia likely did. That would explain why she left - and why you didn't manifest your abilities until your teen years."

>Aiden takes a moment to stop speaking, in order for it all to sink in for Miranda in her mind. After figuring that she's ready to continue, Aiden keeps going.

"It was likely done in a bid to protect you from Dyskrasia's presence, since she knew he was lurking around her family. She probably assumed it found its way into Uncle Eli's mind - and she took the necessary precautions to suppress your powers until you reached adolescence."

>Miranda's eyes widen in surprise at the statement. She then laughs suddenly, unable to contain her response to the absurdity of the statement.

"Haha! Aiden I'm not magic! I can barely meditate, much less perform hand signs and speak incantations! I don't have any potential for magic!"

>Aiden shakes his head as he taps her forehead with his finger. After a moment, a bright surge of rainbow-colored energy emanates from Miranda's eyes.

"Wha?! What did you do?!"

>Miranda begins frantically placing her gloved hands over her face - covering her eyes as bright lights begin to cover her vision.

"Just focus and breathe, Miranda, Calm down."

>Miranda nods and slowly begins to take deep breaths - in and out. After doing this five times in a row, Miranda then readies herself and opens her eyes.

>Aiden then gives a soft smile as he stands up and dusts himself off.

"The Sorcerers Supreme are busy people. I'm not sure they'd just see anyone - especially someone who sees the world in an entitled manner."

>Miranda narrows her eyes in response to Aiden's provocative statement.

"Oh? So why did they see you?"

>Aiden gives Miranda a sheepish look of innocence, feigning surprise and confusion at her accusation.

"What do you mean, Miranda? How are you certain that I actually met them? This could all just be a story I made up to convince you that I'm able to help you - just so that you'd be more receptive to demands from me."

>Miranda immediately sees through Aiden's bluff by pointing out the issues.

>Date: September 14th, 2017
>Location: Sanctuary City - Archeon Complex
>Time: 5:00 PM

>A sense of frenetic tension courses through Arachnid's body, as his swinging becomes more and more erratic. The strain of his muscles begins to further weigh down on the silk adhesive - as he continues to swing through the interlocked arrangement of skyscrapers that comprise Sanctuary City's Business Sector.

{"Damnit! How the hell did someone figure it out?! This isn't good….Shit!"}

>Unable to think throughout the entirety of the day, only now after his classes have finished - can he begin venting in his mind.

{"I still need to finish that report on the microalbumin cultivation. The peptide bonding and substrate creation data needs to be cleaned up too…..Ugh."}

>Twisting like a corkscrew through a large arrangement of construction work, Arachnid continues swinging. His pace and speed begin to pick up rapidly as he then thinks to himself:

{"If somebody's figured out who I am, then what about Mariah? Jay? Aiden?"}

>Location: Kyoto, Japan - Tasogare Castle
>Time: 10:00 PM [Relative to SC]

>Inside of the main gathering area of the large historical castle - two women are continuing to stand in place, before the throne of the Tasogare family ancestral home.

["He was too strong. We had no idea that Ryozo had requisitioned help to such a degree."]

>Hanabi says, as a man remains standing with his back turned to the two women. As he continues staring at an ancient mural on the wall, he then speaks.

["Preparation and proper execution is a hallmark principle of our family lineage, Hanabi. For you to be disarmed by a single punch is almost shameful."]

>Hanabi's eyes lower to the floor as she closes said eyes, then exhales lightly. Now mumbling to herself, she allows Asami to speak up instead.

["Older brother, you were not there! The strength and speed of the one they call Mosaic….It was unparalleled!"]

>Akito then makes a quick gesture with his hand - as he materializes a brief plume of black and red smoke. As the smoke subsides, a large black and red katana appears in his hand. The katana is imbued with a powerful energy - strong enough to make Asami and Hanabi instinctively step backwards.

["The sword passed down through generations. The blade which imbued us with the power of the ancients. The Gods."]

>Looking at the blade with an almost entranced expression on his face, Akito continues speaking.

["The weapon that bestowed upon us our birthright. Our claim to Japan's future."]

>Turning back to Asami, Akito then asks her a simple question.

"Do you know what happens when someone outside the Tasogare family is penetrated by the sword's power?"

>Asami looks at the blade for another long moment, feeling a sense of deep and primal fear. Her hindbrain and the amygdala of her brain immediately begin to scream at her - begging for her to step away. To run, hide or otherwise avoid the blade.

>After a few seconds, footsteps can be heard as an older woman appears in the room. The woman has midnight black, shoulder length hair, and wears a white outfit. While she appears older than Asami and Hanabi, she has the appearance of a woman in her mid 30s. She also has a striking resemblance to Hanabi herself.

>Immediately noticing the woman, Hanabi turns around and starts running to her.


>Hanabi's mother is then startled, as Hanabi gives her a big hug. Patting her on the back, she then responds.

["I am so glad to see you have returned home safely, Hanabi. Please do not worry me like that again."]

>Hanabi pulls back from the hug and laughs.

["No promises mother!"]

>As silence fills the room, Hifumi's demeanor completely changes towards one of seriousness.

["Akito, if their report is correct, then we are in grave danger. The one they encountered…they speak of him as if he demonstrates your level of strength! Combined with potential magic and…."]

>Akito raises an eyebrow as he walks forward, moving to Hifumi's location.

["Finish your statement, Hifumi."]

>Akito stands directly before the older woman, a few inches taller than her, though not by much. As Hifumi feels the imposing nature of his presence, she can feel the power radiating from him.

["Are you certain that none may here us?"]

>Having made a gesture with his hands, Akito watches as a surge of black and red energy pulsates through the room. After a few moments - Hifumi realizes what has happened.

>As Akito waves his hand once more, black and red energy pulsates around them - leading to the room being reversed to its original state.

>Once the pocket dimension is removed from existence, Akito then dissipates the Eien no Yoru into a cloud of black and red smoke.

"Now for the planning and preparations. Ryozo will likely regroup and redouble his efforts to press an assault. Should that be the case, then we need to prepared to retaliate."

>Hifumi wipes away her tears as she closes her eyes and takes a deep breath. Steeling her resolve, she then opens her eyes and states:

"….I will ready the Shadows, they will await your command, Akito."

>Nodding, Akito then turns to leave the room as he says:

"Secrets only serve to divide us. We must maintain unity among our familial ties - if we are to prevail."
