Place: Roof Top Close To Sentinel HQ
Closed/Open: Closed
Actors: Crusader and Lite Star

Lite Star had arranged with Crusader to meet on a flat roof top a block or so away from the HQ, a place with good lines of sight all around and quiet.  A private place to have a discussion, she'd brought a pair of heavy folding chairs and a little table so they could talk in comfort.

Sat in one of the chairs that was dealing well with the weight of the armoured suit she waited for the other heroine to arrive.

Before they parted ways after reaching port, Lite Star passed Bellissima a business card.

"This is for a contact who might be interested in discussing internship.  I work closely with them at times.  I do try and keep my connection with them on the quiet though."

A couple of days later an appointment is made to meet up for an informal chat is made with Eliza Knight at the Bean There cafe, a quiet out of the way artisan coffee house.  On arrival outside sits a Kawasaki Ninja H2 Motor Cycle.  At a table inside to one corner Eliza sits with a mug of coffee waiting, the jacket of her leathers hangs open a 'Cybertronic Spree' t-shirt worn underneath.

The woman who appeared that day was not the armored Crusader. Instead she was simply Sydnie Breuer, MDF. Her dark hair 8s pulled back in a ponytail, her hazel eyes downcast, but her figure is Crusader even in the dark blue suite. She crossed the roof and sat opposite Light Star.

Bellissima nodded as she accepted the card from Lite Star, "Thanks. I will give them a call, after I sleep for about 24 hours." She was still drained, but the headache was now down to manageable levels as she exited the yacht. And that was what she did, after the briefing, went home and slept for a day, except for an email exchange to set up a meeting.

Lexi pulled up in her old Rav4-hybrid to the coffee house, Bean There. As she stepped out of her car and locked it, she looked around at the cars, the only vehicle to catch her attention was the Ninja motorcycle.  Entering the coffee shop, she looked around as she went to the front counter to get herself a large hot chocolate and a blueberry muffin.  She noticed her contact, a lady named Eliza Knight sitting at the specified table.

Walking over to the table, the tall brunette paused and nodded at the woman, "Hello are you Ms Eliza Knight?  I am Lexi Nicoli," she asked confidently as she wore a pair of light blue jeans and a loose white crop top that ended about two inches above her pants and long loose sleeves as she waited for the woman's response.

Lite Star watched Crusader approach in her true identity.  It had taken her aback slightly, but they had spoken briefly about trust, she offered a hand.

"Hi, this is unexpected, though I appreciate the gesture.  I of course know a little of your reputation, and your opinions on vigilantes."

Taking a deep breath she lifted the semi-mirrored face plate of the suit's helmet, for the first time making eye contact with Sydnie/Crusader and in her normal voice Eliza said.

"Thanks for coming to meet me.  I hope we can help each other a little."

Eliza stands and offers a hand with a wide smile brightly across her face, a good deal shorter that Lexi.

"Yes I am.  Very pleased to meet you Lexi, come sit down and Eliza will do just fine."

Retaking her seat Eliza let a finger trace over the very thin tablet that was resting on the table close to her and idly chatters

"I do hope your well, it's turned out to be a pleasant day after all."

Sydnie shook the offered hand. She is ckearly uncomfortable but making an effort. "I'm sorry but you have me at a disadvantage. I don't know you." She is actually very contrite. "I've never done anything like this before, perhaps you can take the lead?"

Lexi set down her drink and muffin and shook the shorter woman's hand with a returning smile. The tall, toned brunette looked a little star struck as she greeted one of the Knights who set up the Knight  Foundation, she really hadn't believed she was going to actually be meeting one of the Knight family.  When she had originally talked to Lite Star, she hadn't tracked that Lite Star was connected to Knight Foundation and had been expecting a meeting with a standard HR representative.  She had looked up at picture of Eliza Knight so that she would recognize her if she saw her. So now when she was standing in front of her, she knew it was really her and now she was much more nervous and excited.

"It is a honor and pleasure to meet you, your family has done a lot of good around the world," Lexi gushed just a little bit, "And please call me Lexi." She sat down opposite of Eliza as the shorter woman sat down. "I am doing much better, just needed to rest a bit.  I overexerted myself which causes bad headaches." 

One of the things Eliza would notice is that Lexi didn't look like you standard science geek, she was toned with muscle that indicated lots of physical activity, use muscles over show muscles. "Today is a wonderful day, later this afternoon I am meeting some friends at Peace Park to practice weapon work."

Place: Sea Sentinel - Hikari Workship 'Robot Yacht'
Closed/Open: Open
Actors: Justicar and Winter Herald

It was quite the swim reaching this yacht after Winter Herald had received what he believed to be an open invitation, and required the use of his grapple being added to his towline, an awkward adjustment that had required him to tread water for some time. He had to empty the compartment of seawater upon reaching the deck. Hikari had not mentioned his yacht would be out to sea already, but this was a mild inconvenience, and likely for security reasons.

The more mundane possibility that Hikari was absent-minded, tied up in a project, and forgot he had invited Winter Herald here at all never occurred to him.

"Mister Hikari?" He was slowly following the sounds of activity, hoping to not trigger some irrational defense mechanism or startle Justicar in a way that would endanger them. "It is Winter Herald, here about that diagnostic. I have to pass as organic if I am going in public later today."

Winter Herald was oddly hesitant. He had not been programmed to feel fear, and yet here he was, curious about what he would do. A word that he was somehow defective from this person could severely damage his relationship with these new allies of his.

Not that anyone watching would be able to tell as he strode up to the building and calmly went up the elevator. These hesitations were in fractions of a second, and had little bearing on the consensus to come here. His programming demanded he come here, and that was what he was doing, even as subroutines were attempting to edit it.

He made it to the door of one Doctor Bonnie Barstow, the one that Lite Star had recommended to him. He walked in, cracking the door open, and visually scanned the room for anomalies and people. "Doctor Barstow? It is Winter Herald, here regarding the psychiatric assessment."

Winter Herald had the impression this was going to be much like the meeting with the doctor, but he was more at ease here and his consensus was more firm in acting out the programming, moving through the door with steady confidence. He still hadn't gotten a preferred name, but decided in the moment to settle. "Mister Davidovitch? You wished for a word with me once I had sorted out some living and personal issues?"

The office is not large.  It is actually rather small.  The desk has just enough room for the seeming ancient, department-issued desktop computer, a desklamp, and the laptop resting next to it.  Behind the desk is a deskchair, with another beside it, and a couple of file cabinets.  In front are a pair of old, padded folding chairs, and the single window is covered by light-colored, diaphonous sheers behind wide open blackout drapes.  A buffet-style table near the door holds a small refrigerator, a coffeemaker, and a microwave.  Despite being kind of small, the one thing the office has is its high ceiling.  The four corners have what appear to be metal poles mounted to the walls, and a swing stops merely inches above where his head would be.  On the walls, there are several photos that show what appear to be circus folk, including a younger, teenaged Chimp Man Z in his aerialist leotard.
He stands up, dressed is his almost ubiquitous police tracksuit, hand extended, as does the smartly dressed woman sitting in the chair nexy to him.  Just call me Jacob, he says.  He then introduces the woman next to him.  This is Jeanette Price, my public relations guru and image consultant.
The woman is pretty, and in her early forties/late thirties, her suit a simple affair in navy blue.    Nice to meet you, Winter Herald.
Jacob waves a hand to indicate the chairs.  How are doing?  Have you found a suitable place to live, yet?

Lite Star offers a wide genuine smile, head tilting to the side slightly as it usually did when her face was covered.  Taking a deep breath and relaxing, the none simulated voice was gentle and warm.

"Ok.  Yeah I'm sort of winging this too a little.  To start with, I'm Eliza Knight, altruistic foundation brat who spends their allowance on charity works.  I think we can both agree that ID's don't go any further.  I... I wanted to talk to you about that mission, and how you dealt with going into a situation like that.  I've never hurt someone more than broken ribs and impact shock from shooting something out of their hand.  I was not prepared to go into a place where I was going up against actual soldiers in combat.  You however seemed prepared for that.  How do you deal with that?"

There is a worried look on her face and she seem to be searching for something of a confort maybe in Crusader's reply.

Eliza's smile was wide and friendly, it sparkles in her eyes as much as anywhere else.  Letting Lexi settle she took a sip of her coffee.

"I'm very glad your feeling better, pushing oneself hard always has consequences, but often the need out weighs them.  Practicing as a team develops a greater bond and effectiveness that's for sure." Giving a slight nod she continues, "My great grand father set up the foundation to do what it could to help people.  And every generation so far has fully gotten behind that goal." She explained a little, "So I understand you are looking to intern maybe with Knight industries, with regards to neurological sciences?  What sort of area are you looking at?"

She held a light gaze on Lexi as they talk.

The name plate on the door was temporary, the office inside was set up with a desk to one side with a laptop and several devices beside it, lights blinking, some of them giving off radio waves and microwaves on communication bandwidths.  Along the wall with the door in it was a comfortable couch, and a leather upholstered office chair sat before it, low coffee table between couch and chair.  Seated comfortably in the chair was a woman likely just pushing her seventies.  Dressing in an expensive silk sky blue suit, hair long still showing streaks of it's natural auburn amongst the over whelming silver, thick rimmed glasses cover pale blue eyes that hint at an extreme intellectual power undulled by age.  On the arm of the chair was a slim smart phone and a little incongruous to the high tech was the watch at her wrist, like a chunky digital from the eighties, yet it too was transmitting and receiving data on a secured band.

"Please come in and take a seat Winter Herald.  Yes I am Doctor Barstow.  Lite Star said you would be here.  We can get started as soon as you wish, after a question.  You find a turtle on it's back by the side of a desert road, what do you do?  And more importanly why"

Lexi tilted her head slightly as Eliza mentioned training with teammates improved teamwork and improved team communications which she believed as well, but she wondered why it felt like a reference to her work with the Sentinels when she was referring to her martial arts friends. But that was irrelevant at the moment.

"Yes, I am going for a masters in Neuroscience at the moment and I am fascinated by how the brain controls the body.  I have a double major in Biophysics and Kinesiology and during those studies, the neuroscience field came to my attention."  Lexi leaned forward toward Alexi as she got excited about what she was talking about, "The reliable transfer of thoughts in the brain to messages that can control a robotic suit is fascinating as well as a sentient AI.  So really my interest in how the body works has migrated to the brain/body connection and Knight Industries is also a societal conscious company.  It's like having your cake and pie at the same time."  Lexi shrugged her shoulders a bit self-consciously as she took a bite of her muffin as she waited for the next question from Eliza.

He sat in the couch, and aimed to distribute his weight to cause minimal damage, taking what seemed to be an excessively relaxed pose on the couch, using what he knew about stealth techniques to apply as little pressure as possible to the couch as he could - this was generally how he walked without making too much noise most of the time. He glanced at himself, mildly annoyed at the breach in protocol, and realized he had little choice. "I do not know the weight capacity of your couch. I am attempting not to break it."

Winter Herald drew his conclusion quickly, to the external eye. "As for your question, I shall assume the question is a closed one, with all relevant data to be within the question. I would turn the turtle upright. 'Why' is complex, but the victorious consensus is that I am there, and there is no sound reason to leave the turtle struggling."

He didn't mind the session was being recorded. Given what she dealt with, likely having security on standby was absolutely required for her survival.

Winter Herald glanced uncertainly at the chairs, put two of them side by side, and distributed his weight between them. Solving this recurring issue was a future project.

"I exist." This was spoken with matter of fact optimism. "I have not found a permanent shelter yet, beyond potentially the HQ. Most of the time, when the base closes, I simply leave the city for the wilds, find an out of the way location that the sun will strike in the morning, and power down to minimal settings. I require little else, and my mobility assures the distance traveled is little issue. The only interruption is cleaning clothes and self. Since we lack an enemy to steal from, I have had to clean this uniform periodically. It is still damaged, although it supports the cover that I am still healing up."

Indeed, his midsection was wrapped in bandages, although they were no longer bloodstained, and he had arranged them in a way that they were holding the outfit together as well, vastly slowing down the rate at which they broke down. If one had explored the HQ, they would find inside the usual storage for the medical bindings an itemized "IOU" on a sticky note signed by Winter Herald. Concealed on the small of his back, although recorded on the IOU, was an addition to his arsenal that he considered authorized - a S&W 39, a weapon he was quite skilled with.

"I am assuming you have found a solution to the PR nightmare that is having automated equipment created by a terrorist organization as a member of your team. How one is perceived by the people funding your war is a subprogram I possess."

"Sea Sentinel" ~ 1994 100' Azimut 100


The 100 'ft Yacht was out int he Center City Bay about a half-mile out from its usual dock at the shipyard.  As Winter Herald approach the ship actually changed course clearly under maneuvering water jets to intercept him.  On the main deck apparently configured to be a testbed, a pair of rocket engines secured and pointed to the prow of the ship whine up to full power cycling through several fuel mixtures and thrust tests.  The rockets engines being tested do alter the Yacht’s bearing but before Herald gets close the test is finalized and the Yacht’s mostly silent water jet maneuvering drive adjusts the boat’s bearing to angle the diver’s gantry at the rear of the boat for Winter Herald to make an easy boarding.

Hikari shortly arrives from below decks he is wearing a kind of swim or wet suit with what might be martial arts shoes for his feet.



Winter Herald, you didn’t have to swim all the way here... I would have come to dock to pick you up if you’d just radioed ahead!  No need for that ‘mister’ stuff, just call me Hikari or Justicar if you prefer.”

“I’ve been ~ wait; What… are you wearing?  Is that the same tattered stuff from the San Sebastian isle?!?  Good grief, come on aboard… I’ll get you something not shredded to wear!”

He nods, “Yes, we’ll got a good diagnostic of your systems and Bio-endo surface to make sure its repairing its self-properly… maybe we can help it along.”

Then he ponders, “Hmmm…where are you staying exactly and what is your Status with the team? Has Detective Broyko spoken to you at all??”

Sydie took her time and rolled the question over in her mind. "My mentor trained me with these scenarios in mind. He put me through live fire exercises similar to those the military uses. As his sidekick I fought the mob, Russian and Italian, as well as street gangs." She took a moment so that Eliza would have time to process what was said.

"Ms. Knight, you did very well for someone who had never faced this before. I have heard of your company which has a decent reputation. The armor is just a trapping, the one who wears it is the true hero. Your mind and body must be your primary weapons,  the rest will follow."

"It is very difficult for me to come here without a mask. Behind one I can be myself. Without I must be whom others expect. Do you face similar challenges?"

Jacob looks thoughtfully at the android.  Being a potential security risk in the eyes of those who watch us, perhaps it is best you stay here.  It will keep you out of potential trouble and it will make it appear that we are more concerned than we actually seem to be.  I mean, from the after action reports I've seen so far, you were quite helpful.  Most of those you fought beside already seem to consider you almost a part of the team.
He looks over thenother's shredded clothing.  If you want, I could see if we have any additional physical training sweats.  Have you given a thought to an actual name for yourself?

I have had my clothing destroyed probably five times now, he says with a chuckle.  Luckily, being this hairy saves a lot of embarrassment.
I heard there was some genius kid at Watanabe Enterprises who was working on a treatment foe synthetic fibers that would render them virtually indestructible.  But, that was a couple of years ago, and haven't heard anything about him since.
