Re: The Warehouse District
Xavier was silent for a moment.

"...Yeah," he said.  "Not as a superhero, exactly, but these people know about me.  Co-workers of my dad.  I can try giving them a call."

'Are you going to be alright doing that?" Spell Slinger asked.

"Yeah," said Carapace.  "Wow.  I haven't talked to them in, like, forever."

"We'll stay here to keep an eye on it while you make the call," Spell Slinger said.

"All right," said Xavier.

...There was no time like the present.  He made a call do Dr. Harrison, even as he felt awkward.  How do you apologize to someone when your sibling ate their legs?

"Yeah, uh, Dr. Harrison?  This is Xavier.  Xavier Morales.  Uh... this is awkward, but I've had this situation come up here, and I don't know who else to call."

You hear a sigh.

"Yeah? What is it?"

"Well, I'm here with these barrels of some kind of dangerous substance," said Xavier.  "Weird creatures, origin uncertain, were trying to steal them.  I'd really like to know what we're dealing with here."

Re: The Warehouse District
"And you want me to test them, is that it?" Dr. Harrison asked.

"If that's OK," said Xavier.  "Our something.  I can tell you what I smell, maybe, if you just want to do a quick version.  I'm just worried that if these things are dangerous, and someone was trying to steal them..."

"No, it'd be best if you could get me a sample," Dr. Harrison said.

Re: The Warehouse District
"Okay, sure," said Xavier.

"Uh, I'm gonna try and get a sample of this stuff," he said.  "Stardroid, can you give me a hand?"

Spellslinger might not have any protection at all from this stuff, whatever it was, and he didn't want her getting hurt if he could help it.

Stardroid came over.

"What do you need of me?"

Re: The Warehouse District
"Well, these containers are full of an unknown chemical," said Xavier.  "I'd like to get some out, so I can get a sample analyzed, but they could be toxic.  I'll probably be all right, but just in case, if you help me, we ought to be able to handle this safely.  Sound like a plan?"

"Okay," said Xavier.  "Let's do this."

He emptied a thermos he sometimes carried coffee in-- a sacrifice to science!-- and with Stardroid's help, tried to pour a sample of the chemical into the thermos.

Re: The Warehouse District
The chemicals bubble slightly as Stardroid's hand accidentally brushes against it. Soon enough, you have a sample.

"All right, I need to get this to someone," said Carapace.  "I'll be back as soon as I can."

...there were various reasons to go alone.  Including not overwhelming one wheelchair-bound scientist.

"Hello friends!" Stardroid said as your approached. "I have bought chips and dip!"

Xavier laughed.

"That's great of you, Droid!" he said.  "Uh, Spell Slinger, what do you need to do?"  He wasn't sure that he should call her 'Patricia' here and now.

"I'll get started on it," Spell Slinger said.

Stardroid brought out a jar of guacamole and wood chips.

"Uh, got some bad news there, buddy," said Xavier.  "I can eat those, I guess, but most humans can't eat wood that's in big chunks like that."

"You'll get the hang of it," said Xavier.  "You're still getting used to us."
