Tomas was obviously deep in thought, he remembered when Baldr was killed by the Missile Toe weapon thanks to Loki. The weapon deployed a small scale nuke and a biological weapon that could be replaced with a weapon to attack Reploids in a biological manner. This was a lot like that, he remembered seeing Baldr become part of a nuclear cloud and his bones turn into dust. His sister, Nanna was near the blast, she had been scarred for life by the matter and tried suicide several times. She was close to her brother and ignored the lust of Loki who wanted her. In a way, Loki had made sure she was untouchable in a sense. But now was not time to think of the past but rather the effect that had. The Nuclear energy combined with the bio weapon caused a chain reaction for Baldr to decompose quickly. Perhaps this was the same.

Vivian was surprised that the Wind Master known how this man did this dirty deed. "Really? How?" She asked him. The Master turned his head the other way from Vivian. "It's...hard to explain and yet it's hard to believe..." He said still not looking at Vivian.

Vivian started at him as he went in the Temple. "...Let's go talk to him Tomas." She said still looking at the gates. The other Monks picked up the dead remains of the man and started to carry him inside.

Tomas had a lot going on in his mid, it was good that he had gotten out of his armor. Yes what the black robed man did was back but he could imagine Thor doing worse. He could imagine Thor torturing the man instead of killing him, squeezing out every ounce of information and more. He could imagine ten times worse things if he went back home and reported all of this. Men in suits and uniforms calling out "This city is a threat!" and people crying in the streets "NUKE THEM! NUKE THEM! NUKE THEM!" while he and his companions were in the middle. Or he should say, all that was left of his companions.

He was not used to the oriental way of sitting, he had done it once or twice but he never got the hang of it. He preferred to stand or sit in a chair above the ground. He used to be afraid of the ground when he was little because he knew that Spiders and insects used it. That was one of his biggest phobias, the fear of insects and he kept it in check.

The Master then continued. "According to this book, he recently discovered some new type of energy. He says that 10 years ago when he was working changing a 7 year old boy into a Cyborg who was about to die, he discovered it. According to Vivian, this boy is Magnus. He had no name for it as it probably already had one so he decided to call it 'The Unknown Energy". This power pretty much is the reason for Magnus's fire abilities. Apparently, the energy can also gives the person some strange supernatural ability to the eyes but they have to be well trained to use them. He tried to take a sample from Magnus's body and test it on a test reploid. The energy rejected the reploid's body and he almost malfunctioned but the prof. quickly removed it..."
The Wind Master read some more then closed the book. "So basically, only someone of Magnus's family can use this energy. Reason being that one, it rejected another reploid, and two, Magnus is a Cyborg so this energy also has mysterious effects that involves his human side too. It is probably something in his genes that makes it so powerful than an average power source. Since Vivian said that Scar fought Magnus and lost, he was probably trying to get this power. If anyone were to get their hands on this energy, they be nearly unstoppable. Even Magnus himself can't even use half of his own power because he'll die from all the flames coming out all at once. Whoever this "Man in the Black Robe" is, he is either related to Magnus, or he's a copy. He's using this dangerous power, which are these "eyes" and is somehow screwing around with a person's mind, causing their head to explode due to all the stress put on the brain. It's especially bad for humans because they are more vulnerable to it. If a reploid or cyborg were caught in these illusions, they will probably just be temporarily stunned or worse....may go Maverick." He said, concluding his explanation.
Vivian just sat there with nothing to say. She had a lot on her mind but she tried not to think too hard.

Vivian got up from the floor. "Well, if he's that powerful, then does that make the copy stronger than the original?" She asked. The Master closed his eyes and responded. "As in the control over the eyes and the fighting skills then yes....that's why you must find the real Magnus before he meets this copy in battle. He'll get murdered by the copy. However, if Magnus could release the same amount of power, then they'll both just kill each other. Either way, Magnus must never fight this copy by himself or he'll die either way..."

He had heard about stuff like this, about the lucky guy who trains under a master in some odd form of martial arts, becoming stronger and stronger. Except he knew some hand to hand combat already, this was more of a expansion rather than a full on course. In a way, he was making himself stronger by using his weaker aspect than his strongest. The reverse of what Project Valkyrie did to him.

In a way Vivian had become as much a friend to him as some of his closest companions from Project Valkyrie. He would make sure that Vivian would be well protected than be on the way side. He wanted to protect her and that was what made him different from the others. He had a heart of pure gold with an attitude to selflessly help others even though it often pained him to do so.

Tomas, even though he knew he was taking precautions can't help but laugh inwardly at himself for the notion. In a way he was treating the situation like a date then a matter of security or anything like that. He was going to need to get a good grip on his emotions. But then again that's what made him such a wild card, his inability to control his emotions. In a way that was his greatest strength.

He would have given her a hug but he didn't want to make what trust there was vaporize. He merely stood there, politely waiting for her to leave for her room. In many ways when he was standing still, he's like a sculpted statue. The years of torment to his body formed muscle that didn't stand out but were hard as stone. His face had slight scars from close shaves and other assorted battles. In a way he was a mix of a soldier and a kind hearted warm man.
