    "I arrived slighty before you did. Not that it matters, the design of the bombs is flawed, catastrophicly so. The containment fails the plasma fires go out of control and everything burns. You got any idea why they're doing this? Insurance? Any demands?" She asked

      "I haven't seen enough to guess at a motive yet
      .
      It wasn't until this one that it got big enough for me to be called in." Chris frowned as he looked over the scene. "I'm just thinking out loud here but there are some things we can rule out. We'll have to do some data analysis but I doubt it's insurance fraud. The targets haven't been big enough to warrant shaky tech like this. Too expensive and too easy to track."

      "My guess is he's working out the kinks before going after something big. But again, need to do some better forensics to be sure."

        BASTION (Tyler Battle)
        HP: 2
        Cnd: Healthy
        Loc.: Sanctuary


        Bastion was a red blooded heterosexual male, but in general he was indifferent about women. Sex and sexuality just did not hold much weight in his world view or interests. But there was that primal bit, way down deep, that just could not be ignored sometimes and that rare creatures like Ruby brought out even in the most disinterested people. Bastion found himself swallowing hard and staring at the posing model's body of the red haired criminal. It got a little hotter in his suit and the young Protector's animal brain was brought to dominance for the next ten minutes. Ten minutes that he had tunnel vision. Before he realized it those ten minutes had passed, feeling like a fraction of the time.

        Somehow he had pushed back that primal part enough to note the woman's body language as she indicated the trailer. It had been a while. Bastion had forgotten how beautiful the woman was, how much of a presence she had. It had caught him off guard. He wouldn't let it happen again. If Hornet was having as much trouble as he had, the heroic scientist would receive a nudge from Bastion to rouse him from a potential staring stupor. Then he moved to the trailer, entered, and waited there. He'd have some time to mentally prepare himself for the meeting with Ruby, and when she arrived there was no gawking this time.

        "Ms. Redd."

        Bastion greeted the woman simply before cutting to the chase, one hand motioning to where Hornet stood.

        "He have had a recent encounter with a group of gem themed personalities. One of which Hornet seemed to receive some of the memories of. I was hoping you could shed some light on the experience."

        After saying this he turned his head and looked to his fellow Protector, giving the man an encouraging look. Inviting him to speak, even if Bastion did not use words to prompt him.

          Shock and Powerfist


          As the two scientists discuss the situation Shock seems to recall some reports of a woman with similar armaments who was alleged to have taken down several elements of both Viper specifically their tech divison AIM (Advanced Idea Mechanics -- A sort of subgroup within the organization--) The woman was never apprehended or questioned as very little evidence was ever left and the investigaitons went cold for the most part.

          While talking his commlink which is set to monitor police lines pings and he gets a call about an unusual device at a local stripmall. The device is small and compact and a customer which found it called the police and alerted them to a possible bomb. Recent events have the police on edge so theyre scrambling EOD.S hock realizes hes closer though.

          Susan gets a similar warning as the base computer which shed set to monitor police and emergency frequencies for certain buzzwords comes through with a report of a possible incendiary device at a local stripmall.

                HP:1 Cnd: Hungering Flame


                In an instant, Tony wheels and barrel rolls as he drops into a raptor's stoop. A flaming rocket hurtling back towards the island, Dragonfyre sheds both flames and scales and lands lightly in a quickened step just scant yards from the elusive elemental. His heart is pounding in a tempo that would have a normal man on the ground in pain and shock. For him, it left slightly breathless and incredibly excited. Fear that he was being fooled, he whispered, "Lexia?..." His hand reaches out looking towards the scarlet tresses, breath held and waiting for the turn of her head.

                    Hornet:
                    [Kirk McGlothlin]
                    HP: 2
                    LP: 2

                    Once again Hornet couldn't help but be caught under the spell that Ruby Redd cast, she was the embodiment of any adjective a man could use to describe the beauty of a woman. A small part of the hero's brain managed to have the thought about exactly how Kris had managed to retain his composure when dealing with the woman months ago, Hornet was having trouble not staring at her, like everyone else, at a distance.

                    At some point Bastion gives the normally tiny hero a nudge on the shoulder, jarring Hornet back to his senses. Underneath his visor he blushes slightly and decides that it would likely be best if he shrunk down as he followed his teammate towards the indicated trailer, so by the time Ruby joined them he had himself under control.

                    "Specifically I was fighting Topaz and she did some deep mental probe .... thing but when I broke free I ended up reading a bit of her memories ..." Hornet paused for a moment, recalling the fear on Ruby's face during the ordeal. He didn't like the idea of making her relive that but realized that it was something that had to be done. "I saw what she and her new teammates did to you, with Anubis' help, and I'm sorry to have to make you go through that ordeal, but we think Anubis is employing Topaz and her team for something big and dangerous from what I could tell. Any help you and the Masters could give us in finding and stopping them would be a greatly appreciated."

                        Chris thought the hand on his chest was awfully familiar for someone he'd just met when a touch of the arm would do, but he didn't object. He certainly didn't want to disrupt the process or harm someone who was trying to help.

                          Those red hairs flare in the wind like flames and brush across Tonys fingers leaving him the impression of having touched living flame as they do before Lexia turns with a brilliant smile and glomps tony nearly knocking off his feet in the process as she hugs him with surprising strength for a young lady.

                          "Tony!" she chirps happily "its so good to see you again, I'm so sorry I didn't call sooner, but mother and I have been traveling; A lot."

                          "So how have you been? Tell me Everything!" she lets him go and steps back gifting him with that smile again the one that makes him think of warm sunrises, and hot breezes blowing across the deserts of the world.

                            Shock and Powerfist


                            A whomp and woof of displaced space and air finds the two allies just outside the police perimeter of the 4th Avenue strip mall, a medium sized retail establishment with a food court and mostly catering to the wealthier clientele who live nearby in some newer condo complexes.

                            The scene is Chaotic as Police rapidly attempt to evacuate the area and establish a perimeter to insure the can catch the guy responsible. Shock catches a bit of cross chatter on his comm which seems to suggest that the perp might still be inside, and that hes armed.

                            Powerfist standing nearby watches the chaos with cool detachment her own comm pinging the same information.

                            Shock can speak to any of the local authorities to try and enter the premises.

                              Hornet and Bastion


                              Shes all smiles until you mention Topaz by name then her face becomes cold and even angry. Shes clearly not happy and turns away from you the temperature in the room seeming to drop a few degrees lower then the AC humming away in the background could account for.

                              For a long moment it seems like shes dismissed you and ended the conversation but finally she sighs rubbing the bridge of her nose as she leans back.

                              "I'm not sure there's much I can tell you honestly." she begins turning towards you and looking a little tired if youre any judge of people. "Her name is Chelsea McCann, I'm not even sure that's her real name mind you. She met me several years back, we were kids, I was a street rat with a talent for breaking into things, and a knack for gemstones." she chuckles a little sardonically at the unintentional pun before continuing.

                              "She approached me with the idea to gather a crew of people for bigger jobs. Also she was the one who came up with the idea to use the Gemstone inspired codenames and Facet as the name of our growing group. "

                              "So we did and we were pretty good at it. I did most of the work while she made the plans. Then she pushed for a big job one last major score. That's the way she was, always bigger, always more, success was never enough, she had to have everything like there was some hole in her that she couldn't fill. The people she started bringing in were specialists in various fields, Biology, chemistry security, muscle."


                              She takes a sip of water while pointing to a bucket nearby that has ice and various beverages in it for you to partake of.

                              "Soon she said we had enough and wanted to go after her big score. She wanted to go after a potent Neurotoxin that the US government haf confiscated from some group called Arachnos and use it to blackmail the government out of billions of dollars. I wanted nothing to do with it for a couple reasons. The crew was growing too fast bigger crews mean more attention, also because Chelsea liked to use people, whatever she wanted she would do anything to get use anyone. And the idea of using a weapon of Mass Destruction was just sickening to me; We ... she hesitates here her eyes narrowing at a particularly unpleasant memory.

                              "We had an argument that turned into a fight. I broke Chelseas arm and put a few of them on the floor before leaving." she smirks before continuing.

                              "Anyways they went through with their plan without me and all of them were caught." she looks at you guys a bit of a shrewd look on her face "You're guy Shock was part of taking them down, he was working with Dark Angel at the time."

                              "Never did learn how she found out about it, but she did and teamed up with Shock to take down the crew in the attempt."

                              "Anyways, after she got out Chelsea or topaz as she called herself approached me. She wanted to bury the hatchet and asked for my help with a score. She promised me thered be no casualties and it would be smooth as silk." She hesitates for a long moment before continuing.

                              "Not sure what you saw but if you did you saw that they tried to take my powers from me." she reaches over and touches a ruby on a small band of gems hanging off her mirror. A reddish glow flows over her body and her eyes glow red before she hold up a delicate hand which is wreathed in flames, the fire forms into a ball then a small bird before extinguishing.

                              "I didn't stick around much after that, Psyche approached me about joining the Masters after a I had another run in with Topaz and Facet. I figured better safe in numbers, and these guys at least shared my dislike of body counts."

                              She pauses a long moment looking you two in the eyes as if trying to see something

                              "If you guys are going after them be careful, theyre not like the Masters, they don't hold any respect for life or limb and don't care who gets hurt in the process as long as they get what they want, and that Anubis character I have no desire to even remotely get involved with him again, quite frankly he scares me."

                              "You're good guys, I wouldn't want anything to happen to you." she smiles warmly as she finishes
