New Hera: Layer 1: Central Park The Center of New Hera is the center of peace

The sound of an engine could be heard descending. However, nothing could be seen.... That is, until Shadeth deactivated the cloaking device on the Shade Falcon and landed the vehicle nearby the fountain. He hopped out of the one-man glider and assessed his surroundings. The city seemed to be in chaos, from what he could tell while flying overhead. What looked like a military base was completely destroyed. What in the world was going on here? Could that rumored power actually exist here?

He instinctively reached for his katana, but stopped. The military base looked to be a pile of rubble. And with all of this other chaos about, Shadeth found it hard to believe that a military officer would single him out here. He lowered his arm and crossed them again. It would be best to see what this whole thing was about before acting hasty.

"You're much too odd to be one of the civilians nor a local resident of Canada nor are you infected... and you came out of nowhere." He glared at Shadeth.

"And you, sir, appear to be too lenient towards all of this chaos to be a member of the Federation's military," Shadeth replied. "Good thing, too. Means I won't have to deal with them this time."

"I am the Colonel of this Military. Any Federation soldiers in this city follow my command, and you have no business. Either give yourself up to the Lord Sigma, get out, or do neither and be terminated on my watch. I'm sure there is some people here who would like to see the benefits of being on this Military and I personally wish to test my power to it's fullest," Liaf said, letting go of his sabre and placing his hands on his waist.

[From New Hera: Layer 1: Streets]
Blaze Lioness entered the area. Indeed, it seemed ripe with potential prey. She noticed something odd ahead though at the fountain. Was that... a small plane of some sort? She approached. Up ahead, she could see some important-looking military official, and what she was sure was...
"Fufufufu! If it isn't one of Lord Ciphus's lovely little targets. Today just keeps getting better," she said to herself as she approached. She was still a ways away and obscured by the crowd.

It was hard for Ryuta to come back here, knowing that anyone could have pointed him out as a threat without even bothering to notice the mask, but he trudged in anyway, figuring if someone did squeal he would have plenty of hiding places to run to and throw off the robes.
Lioness can be seen heading towards the fountain where the inconsiderate Colonel stood, confronting the ninja reploid he had encountered back before New Hera ramped up their obsession with Sigma. It was hard not to forget that reploid with the soul bound to his structure.
He would stick around and see where this is going, but doing so may cause some concern from the quick judging citizens hanging around the area. He figures it was probably best to shed the disguise now and save himself unneeded persecution, or worse, a fight that would just worsen the possibility of being labeled a Maverick before anyone found out what he really is.
Ryuta starts to make his way towards the shadows of the park, keeping watch both spiritually and physically to make sure no one was following his moves.

"Ah ha! Looks like I found someone else who has a bone to pick with Cordell," Shadeth spoke. "Tell me a bit more about that power and where Cordell is and I could very well eliminate him for you. As for my worth... You're looking at the Reploid who infiltrated your military's GULAG facility and stole a cart-full of a certain rod. Who infiltrated the naval port in Giga City and let a battleship just... disappear. Who broke out of a certain military headquarters... and stole a good number of Force Metal crates from Giga City itself. I believe a certain Generals has me on his immediate hit list." Shadeth then paused for a moment and looked the Colonel dead in the eyes.
"My Codename is Shadeth. I wonder if you've heard of me, or if maybe it's just the General that wants me dead?"
Blaze Lioness remained hunched over slightly and behind a small bit of the crowd as to not draw immediate attention to herself. She couldn't help but chuckle at Shadeth's words. My my, he's been a pretty naughty boy, she thought. Lord Ciphus himself might be impressed at this boy's recent work.

"Oh, okay. You're just a common terrorist. You could do well in my ranks, Reploid. You see, I have no bone to pick with Cordell but I might as well eliminate him. He grabbed me out of nowhere and fixed me. I can't have anybody who's seen my insides. Last I saw him was Abel City but it's most likely he's gone. I also like the fact that your terrorist acts target the General. I want him dead. Not even unleashing that Hydra this morning could cause the Hunter's to mistrust the General. Even so, I don't associate myself with terrorists. I may be an usurper but I am no terrorist," Liaf said before tilting his head towards his shoulder.
He pinched something on his shoulder and spoke into it. "This is Colonel Liaf speaking to all Federation personal in New Hera. If somebody with foreign clothing excluding SYN-Revenge asks you about Ordarium, and is a Reploid whom isn't infected, do not answer him. Don't acknowledge him. If he tries to force and you can't defend yourself, kill yourself. Over and out," he said. He looked back at Shadeth. "Nothing personal. We just can't trust you right now until you prove yourself to those other two. If you want to prove yourself to me, go sign up for the Federation military," he said.

It was then that Blaze Lioness stepped forward.
"Fufufufu!" she chuckled as she came into view. "Well now, Shadeth. Or should I say, 'Van Sinoko'. If you're not going to accept the power and join these ranks, then I have a message for you from a certain someone."
Shadeth immediately pulled out a handful of three shuriken from his pouch and reared back. He paused and spoke.
"... Hmph. You're that lion Maverick that went berserk years ago. And since you know my real name, I can only suppose you're one of Ciphus's pets."

He drew both sabres and dash-jumped forward, flipping himself so he would wind up bringing his foot down on Shadeth's head. He activated his sabres' energy, covering them. He kept his arms stiff and at the read and prepared for a dodge from the Reploid.

Normally he wouldn't get involved in this matter, but he doesn't trust how sane the lioness reploid is with her systems full of Ordarium. He quickly pulls the mask off and hides it in the hollow innards of a nearby, artificial tree before moving towards the other side of the fountain, keeping his hood as far over his head as possible to hide his face from any passerby that would most likely stop to witness the ensuing fight.

Lioness placed a claw on her hip and sighed. "Hmph. Men never give a lady a chance to speak."

His attention then turns to Lioness, seeing her utter irritation at being ignored. It almost seemed certain that, if this keeps up she'll eventually get bored and look for someone else to test her new-found energy on. He attempts to move around the fountain to avoid falling into her line of sight.
Posted 27 May 2012 - 01:39 AM
Lioness simply watched and waited. She wanted to test out her power badly. If Shadeth remained victorious but didn't listen, she remembered her master's orders to force him into submission. If the colonel ended up killing the boy, she'd just use him for target practice instead.
