Ian, Ty'daal:
Detective Jones turns back to Ty'daal, looking angry. "Smashing? Why were you smashing the Amphora Peapod?!? What did that ship ever do to you?!? The gas leak from there is why I'm at home right now; there was an alert that we might have to evacuate the entire marina!"

"I was at no such container dock. I was bringing justice for the sea at their oil platform after they opened fire with your 'guns'" Ty'daal replies.

Ty'daal, Ian:
The light dawns in Detective Jones' eyes, and his jaw drops. "You were smashing an Amphora drilling platform, and somebody else was smashing one of their LPG ships? What the Hell is going on around here?"

He pulls out his cell phone, and hits a speed-dial button. "Marcy? Yeah, it's Nate. Has there been any chatter about an attack on an offshore platform? I know, add it to my list... Also, get me anything you can find on the Amphora Corporation. Thanks."

Detective Jones sits down on a deck chair. "OK fellas, tell me what you've been up to today, and what "justice for the sea" means. For any number of reasons, I'd like not to have to arrest both of you, but this is looking kind of bad..."

"I began to notice that the water was becoming foul and soon would force me from my home. Amm-Fibian and I tracked the pollution to the oil platform. I boarded the platform and I was invited to talk to their president when the lights went out. I went outside to investigate. The head of security then threatened to arrest me, he was ranting about something. I refused to be detained since I had done nothing wrong, and when I attempted to simply leave, he fired his gun at me. Since they would not listen to reason, I decided to take matters into my own hands- at the same time Skate was there and he and I proceeded to shut down the 'fracking' operation by disabling the sub-surface infrastructure. They then proceeded to drop 'depth charges' on myself and Amm-Fibian," Ty'daal carefully explains.

"I, of course, am completely innocent of an unlawful wrongdoing. You're statement about arresting both of us is illogical. You say a freighter was also attacked? I'm unfamiliar with your term LPG ship... unless you are referring to the Emperor's well known Light Penguin Gunboats?"

Detective Jones leans back. "Liquified Propane Gas--the stuff Amphora's been drilling for offshore. I seem to remember, though, that those natural gas wells were played out. They shut down the operation a few years ago, it wasn't profitable anymore..."

"I do not men to offend, Detective, but what do you suggest our next course of action is, Amm-Fibian suggested that you would be the man to seek answers from," Ty'daal asked Jones.

"So why would Amphora be drilling there again? If it is Amphora and not some cover..."

Re: E3S7 - Kuailo Marina - Ian, Ty'daal
Detective Jones frowns. "The legal way to shut down an illegal drilling operation is to get the EPA to investigate, find out whether Amphora's breaking any laws, and then bring charges agains them."

He raises a hand, forestalling the objections he knows he's about to hear. "That takes time, and in the meanwhile Amphora will cover their tracks and stall with everylawyer they have." His frown deepens. "The question on my mind is; if you two didn't have anything to do with what happened earlier at the container port, who did?"

"Is it possible that Skate is working with a partner or group? Amm-Fibian you know more about the denizens of this world. Does Skate have any known allies?"

Ian:
Skate doesn't have a high profile. By knowing Angelfish and Dr. Ishida, you know more about him than just about anyone but they do. After your first encounter with him, in the South Pacific, I'm sure your detective's mind began putting pieces together; unexplained sightings of "something or someone" in the water near various violent events could well have been Skate. If so, his general pattern is to attack what annoys him.

As a detective, you'd profile Skate as an angry loner, unlikely to join a group or partner with someone for any length of time. He might overcome that in pursuit of a very strong desire--like revenge--but you've seen his emotional responses to Amphora Corporation and to Angelfish and Dr. Ishida; his reactions toward the latter two are far more visceral.

Re: E3S7 - Kuailo Marina - Ian, Ty'daal
"Detective, I wonder if you could contact Angelfish and let her know her Skate is out and causing problems?"
He floats in the water in a sitting pose, rubbing his chin thoughtfully.
"I don't think Skate is our main enemy here. I'm going to need a computer to gain info on that last attack, but first lets find out if anyone else in the group knows anything."

Ian, Ty'daal:
Nate pulls out his cell phone, and dials. He gets through to Blue Sea Research and Development, then, after a pause;
"Uh... Angelfish? This is Senior Detective Jones witht he MIB. We met a few weeks ago..." You can hear an uncomfortable intonation in the detective's voice as he uses her nom-de-guerre. "Our mutual friend Ian wants me to pass along to you some important information. Skate appears to have been involved in some sort of attack on an offshore drilling platform. Details are sketchy at this point..." He eyes Ty'daal as he says that, as if suspicious that the two of you aren't telling him everything. "But Ian wanted to warn you that Skate was in the area and active."

[OOC: If you want to join in the conversation, it's occurring in the E3S7 - Blue Sea R&D Lab thread.]

Ian, Ty'daal:
Just as Nate opens his mouth to speak, his phone rings again. He holds up a thick index finger (a human gesture whose meaning is unclear to either of you) and answers. Almost immediately, he puts the call on speaker:

"...spoke briefly when you called earlier. Angelfish and Time Keeper are headed for the roof of the Horizon Transit building, in pursuit of a vigilante known as TechKnight. He was responsible for the attack on the LPG ship. I'm concerned for their safety..."

Nate ends the call, then says. "I'll see what information I can come up with on this "TechKnight"--assuming he's in the MIB files. Maybe he's involved with Skate somehow..."

"I'll assist you Detective. Ty'Daal, perhaps you would like to assist the two other heroes in punching this TechKnight into submission?"

"Indeed, I will assist the others," Ty'daal speaks, lifting himself out of the water and onto the dock. He begins to head out, then stops and turns, "Where is this 'Transit building'?"

Ian shrugs and stares at Detective Jones, through the water.

"Perhaps I'd better come along too."

Amm-Fibian catches sight of a crusty old sea captain, with long coat and wool hat.
He aims the TUNA and fires...

OOC: Amm-Fibian rolled 2,6 using d6,d6 ((2,6))
-4 + 6 possession = 2

Ian:
[OOC: You have such an interesting notion of the sorts of people who can afford to keep boats at Kuailo Marina, and how they dress in Hawai'i. :)]
The TUNA blinks and buzzes, but you get only an instantaneous impression of the crusty old man's visual viewpoint before snapping back into your own body.

OOC: Ha, yeah, I mostly make up the type of people I want to roleplay next.  :P

Amm-Fibian smacks the TUNA and shakes his head. "I should have figured that a sea captain would have a strong will."
He aims the TUNA at a late teens Hawaiian girl in a swimsuit and fires...

OOC:  Amm-Fibian rolled 5,6 using d6,d6 ((5,6))
-1 + 6 possess = 5
(Sometimes I feel like the dice roller automatically places the smalles number first... sigh...)

Ian:
[OOC: Major Success! You've got the girl solidly. It will be quite a while before she tries to reassert control.]

As Detective Jones heads for his car, he sees the girl joining up with Ty'daal at the end of the dock. Oh, s#*t! That's Dr. Shaeffer's daughter! I'm going to have some explaining to do...

Ty'daal looks around, wondering if the young woman was talking to him. " I am partially aquatic, but I am no 'man', earth female.". The joke and reference lost on the alien warrior.

Detective Jones sighs. "I guess I'm giving you a lift, then? Hop in. We can be at the container port in just a few minutes--if they're letting traffic get near the place."

[Continued in E3S9 - Container Port.]
