    Arc
    HP: 1
    Status: Surprised

    Arc jumped, she had been so focused on looking back to make sure the Vampire Bird people didn't suddenly appear that her heart skipped a beat when she heard the woman's voice.

    She turned back and looked to the woman, "Oh my god, I know you. You're....oh don't tell me, you were on that team...and the other one. C'mon, I know this...you're...you're...Knockout...no that's not right." Then she realized what was happening in front of her. "Oh crap...soo first...this isn't what it looks like, I'm here for the same reason as you. The Bird Vampires, see I was on patrol...it's like my first week of me being solo, when I saw a bunch of bat people...but I guess now I know they're birds. Anyway, I lost them but I tracked them here and when I got here the security guy in the ventilation looks like he got hit pretty hard. Someone took a bite out of him, but then they healed him so hopefully he doesn't go vamp on us. I found some fresh blood on his clothes and some feathers around him." Arc pulls the feather out of her pocket to show the woman in front of her. "Anyways, we should work together, you're here and I've already found some stuff.
    It'd be great. Black Lightning will be thrilled to hear I teamed up with someone already!"


    Her demeanor was cheerful and excited, she had been able to explain the details quickly, but also without over explaining the situation. She gave a soft smile, looking closer you might find her to be telling the truth or you might think it some kind of trick.

    Stealth check to have a quiet conversation: 1D20+5 = [15]+5 = 20

    Would you mind doing a Well-Informed roll for Black Lightning...my mentor.

      Well Informed: 1D20+12 = [3]+12 = 15 15 seems enough to have heard of Black Lightning
      Bombshell

      Bombshell scowled a moment before extinguishing her hand, "Bombshell." Bombshell replied sternly "First things first, show me where this guard is." Bombshell continued ushering Arc back in the building "Excuse me a moment i'm going to call this in, get him an ambulance."

      "This is Bombshell, good a man down at the Center for Native American Studies, currently stable. Witness reports "Vampire birds" likly threat to personal, pursuing as soon as confirmed condition. " Bombshell reported into the walky talky.

      "Could you describe the birds you saw, other than Vampirey?" Bombshell asked Arc in a slightly softer tone as removed the guard from the vent with the emerald energies, of her quantum grasp.

        Arc
        Hp:1

        ”Bombshell, right pleasure to meet you. I’m Arc, wait I already said that.”

        Emily kept an eye on the other side of the room and above as she escorted Bombshell to the security guard. Overhearing the conversation she realized there was a small misunderstanding.

        “Uhm...Bombshell they’re not Vampire Birds, that’s imply birds have teeth. I mean they’re like Bird Vampire’s. Instead of bat wings they had feathers. Also they seem to be able heal others.”

        Waiting for Bombshell she explained what she knew. “I was scouting on the rooftops when I saw a bunch of winged humanoids flying, one isn’t weird...twos kinda weird but there was at least...I don’t know probably more then 5. Anyways, so I followed them but they flew faster then I could surge through the rooftops. Then I found him and the feathers and figured they must be something like feathered bats. Oh also that.”

        Emily pointed up. “Looks like a controlled explosion, decent enough guess to assume point of entry. Which makes sense if they can fly, whatever they’re up to it’s further. We should hurry and stop them. I’ll go in and you can cover me! Or...I could follow you. Your choice.”

            Dr. Toupeira reached up and adjusted his glasses, finding himself wishing be still had a human house bridge to pinch.
            "Calm down, Professor," he said, "We will just call in Security and- "
            His words were interrupted by Nora's crashing arrival. Dr. Toupeira had half turned to interpose himself when his fatigued brain caught up to that the bovine powerhouse was addressing him by name.

            "A literal bull in a china shop if there's any pottery in there," he muttered, then he cleared his throat and addressed the professor.
            "It sounds like you already contacted the police. Good work. What happened, exactly? And Miss... er Miss... whoever you are, please don't rush in and disturb the scene."

              Salinas made a visible effort to calm himself but there was a distinctly higher than normal pitch to his voice. The charming teacher seemed to have been subsumed by the nervous old archivist. "There's been a robbery. I haven't made a detailed catalog yet, but several artifacts have been stolen! And...well, its not like we kept rare gems or historic paintings and sculptures in here. Who would want to steal native anthropological pieces?"

              Salinas barely seemed faze by Nora's arrival, he was so caught up in everything else. "Quickly, follow me!" He motioned before heading back into the museum.

              Nora can tell there's something slightly strange about the white-haired man, well aside from his panicked demeanor. He smells...kind of funny, not like anyone else she's met before. But then, neither does Dr. Toupeira. But even to Dr. Mole, there is a strange scent about the Professor. New cologne, perhaps?

                Charlie weighed her options. On the one hand, this "Gustavo" was an entirely unknown entity. A mummy, from a different time. On the other... she wasn't even trying to sense magic, and she felt that. That was big. And Gustavo seemed like he was okay. And he'd probably be good in a fight. Her gut told her that she probably couldn't beat whatever on her own. But with some help maybe she stood a chance.

                <"Alright, Gus, lead the way. I'll help you get your stuff and then you help me deal with whatever s*** is going down tonight. After... you probably don't have a place to stay, and my roommate just moved out, so we might be able to work something out.">

                  Dr. Toupeira reached one massive paw out to bar the professor at the door.
                  "One moment, Professor," he said, taking in a snoutful of air, including the professor.

                      Emily didn't want to tell her she honestly had no idea where she was going. So she decided to take an educated guess and went through the most likely door....which turned out to be a broom closet.

                      Laughing...more like dying from embarrassment, she tried again. "By the way...I can control and manipulate electricity...you know, in case that helps us in a fight at all. She was surprised Bombshell didn't ask her, wouldn't that be important information to know in a superhero team up. She laughed, eh even the pros mess up sometimes she guessed.

                        HP: 1, Cnd: Normal

                        <"I thank you, mage. I do not know where they are kept, but I think I shall try where that Professor went."> Gustavo said with a touch of suspicion in his voice, turning his head just in time to catch the sight of some kind of giant humanoid with horns come crashing down like a living meteor and go charging towards the very same building! <"More Monsters... Are they such a common sight this day and age?"> He turned to ask Rune just in time to see a vibrant and colorful human approach.

                        His gaze would turn back to Rune curiously, wondering what the human was saying.

                        <"I'll start my search there, follow when you get the time."> Gustavo directed, feeling she'd need to deal with this encounter as he himself turned to begin to follow in the direction of Toupeira and Nora to begin searching the building for where his weapons may be stored.

                        Distant discharges of electricity, crowds seemed to be moving with concern. This night was coming alive it seemed, everything being drawn inexorably towards some event... He had felt times like this long ago. It was the tides of war, growing slowly before culminating into bloody combat.

She turns back to see what he saw, and finally spots Goo Girl. She vaguely recalls her calling out before... "Oh, right. Disturbance. Yeah. Okay so it looks like a mummy just revived on campus but I think he's a good guy? Maybe? Also there's some huge magical threat thing going down tonight. So, uh. Other than that, I guess I don't really know anybody in particular that needs help. But something just happened over there-" Rune points towards the campus buildings, "-And I don't want to lose track of the mummy in the middle of everything, so I was going to follow it. How are you?"

"We can follow the mummy together. All I know is it was reported on a police radio that something was happening here. You think it was something mystical? Wait, you think that mummy just came to life? That is weird."

                              "Oh right, sorry! Misses Wynne says I'm a total scatterbrain sometimes." Nora said as she bounced alongside the two scholars "I'm Nora, Heroine of Justice! And I'm here to help."

                              Watching the good doctor take a sniff of the air, she leaned down to his level, now that she thought about it there was something off about the Professor that she couldn't quite put her finger on...

                              "Does something smell funny to you too?" She tried to ask quietly, of course she could have just asked the Professor directly but if she'd learned one thing working at a convenience store it was manners and that would just be rude.

                                Everyone

                                While Nora has a deep mental catalogue of scents, she hasn't anything quite like what Salinas smells like. If she had ever encountered it before, she'd be able to place it, but as it was all she could say was that he smelled different. Pleasant enough for all that.

                                "There were several artifacts absconded with, but the most important is what we call The Fire of the Sun and Moon. There's nothing else like it anywhere, as far as we can tell. And I tried to contact security, but the guard on duty isn't answering-for all I know, he's in on the theft! Quickly, follow me."

                                Soon enough, Professor Salinas leads you inside, whereupon you round a corner and come face to face with two other unusual-looking people on a night full of them.

                                "What the crap?!" Salinas exclaimed (he rarely swore and was thus not very good at it). "Who are you people!?"

                                Gusatvo

                                There they are! The silver-haired man walks by an open door full of strange items you've never seen before, but in a clear case are your guns, looking as well-maintained as the last day you held them. Such powerful works of artifice, on display this way-these people must be ignorant of their true power.

                                Basically I figure the two groups more or less bump into each other somewhere in the middle of the museum.
