    Magnitude
    Kasimir Flaegler
    HP 1


    Kas had to agree with Ms. Zlatkovski. Second hand translation was a highly questionable proposition. Language was tricky. One wrong inflection and a statement could end up meaning something completely different than intended and when one was dealing with a sing-song language like Korean, the incident of mistranslation was a matter of when not if.

    "I agree, you'd best come up here. Tantivy, Rheid, Mantikore...would you please go check on our guest? Dong-suk's sisters are neither with him, nor kalling ahead to give warning, which means they might be attempting to lokate Napoleon as we speak. Except for the one who has powers akin to Shiver, we haf no idea what the girls are kapable uf. I'd rather not chance this being a distraktion to extrikate him."

    Kas didn't like having to assume Ji-won and the others would try to abduct the dimension lost Frenchman from the Academy, but they'd already demonstrated a fundamental predisposition for deceit. Plus in the corridors near the Wreck Room, or even within the room itself, the trio could negate the advantages flight gave an opponent, should that prove necessary.

    Now it was merely a matter of waiting for the linguist to arrive to assist in negotiations.

      S/he looked at the Chinese woman skeptically. S/He knew Lacuna was a master manipulator.

      "If you are not Lacuna-controlled zen you are under mental magics and 'iding ze pinpoint pupils wiz Elle's abilities. Or, you may even be my little sister, Elle and misguided by a terrorist wiz many many decades of manipulating people. Eizer way, come back wiz us and agree to incarceration. Give up Tallemaja's insanity, and I'll make sure she gets out of zis." Martina promises, well aware his words are being transmitted. "I just... want my family back."

        The Blue Knight

        Gwyn waited until they were mostly out of earshot of the others. He tried to smile a bit-he imagined this was all as strange for Lamperouge as it had been for him the first time they'd met.

        "So, I imagine this is all proper strange for ya. But you're quick, so I'll sum up. Youer thingy there-Astro summat, lets ya travel through space, time, and through parallel dimensions. That's how some of us know ya-from ouer point of view, we've already met-in what is ouer past and youer future. And that's why I can tell ya-"

        It was all a bit Doctor Who, he supposed. Gwyn'd actually done a fly-by over the studios in Cardiff about a year back. Robert had chided him, and then admitted he still to the day wished to meet Tom Baker.

        He reached out and laid a hand on her shoulder, softly squeezing in a comforting sort of way. "This is gonna turn out nice and tidy. From my point of view, ya've already been through this, and ya got through without a scratch. I know, confusing, innit, but trust me. We're gonna help this world, and then your thingy will have us on ouer way. Now let's get cracking."

        Gwyn paused for a moment, remembering. He let his hand drop.

        "Oh, right. I go by The Blue Knight, but most of them's know me as Harry Percy. Its my secret identity. My real name is Gwyn. I'm telling ya because-from my point of view again-you knew the first time we met. Ya ready to get back to it, eh, Lizzie?"

          In minutes, Miss Zlatkovski was on the front quad. She called out to Dong-suk in his native language and listened as he yelled down his reply. "He says he's here to formerly request the French boy be surrendered to him. He said that he attacked the Korean embassy and is their problem--not yours."

          "In that case, destroying our parents was a poor decision." Elle walked past him on her way to Tallemaja. "If you'll excuse me, I must continue with our family's legacy, as there is no one left to do so..."

          As she made her way towards her teammate, something curious happened...:

          The green stuff is bushes and such. From the ground level, stairs go up to the temple. There is a retaining wall around the temple, so... we'll go with ~5' drop from the temple to the bushes, then another 5' drop to the ground. The circle in the middle is a big pole.

          Lemme know where everyone is at. Dewhurst and Fraction's placement will be contingent upon Lex and Martin's position.
          CAMP DAVID (Blue Knight, Greystone, Imago, Shiver, Ursa; NPCs: Drifter, Felsic, Incubus [DOA], Maze, Verve, Vestige)
          "So, I imagine this is all proper strange for ya. But you're quick, so I'll sum up. Youer thingy there-Astro summat, lets ya travel through space, time, and through parallel dimensions.

          He reached out and laid a hand on her shoulder, softly squeezing in a comforting sort of way. The young girl started to blush and looked dreamily at the pretty, blonde Welshman.

          "This is gonna turn out nice and tidy. From my point of view, ya've already been through this, and ya got through without a scratch. I know, confusing, innit, but trust me. We're gonna help this world, and then your thingy will have us on ouer way. Now let's get cracking."

          Gwyn paused for a moment, remembering. He let his hand drop. Her heart skipped a beat.

          "Oh, right. I go by The Blue Knight, but most of them's know me as Harry Percy. Its my secret identity. My real name is Gwyn. I'm telling ya because-from my point of view again-you knew the first time we met. Ya ready to get back to it, eh, Lizzie?"

          The Drifter gave him a dopey smile as she nodded enthusiastically.

          Following him back to the others, they found Felsic missing. Likewise, Incubus' body was gone. Before either could question it, the Finnish girl slowly rose up from the earth. She looked sheepishly at the Blue Knight. "I just... I thought he could use a proper burial, you know?"

          "Are we getting out of here soon?" Shiver asked Imago. "This place doesn't feel safe."

          No sooner had the words left her lips than he heard the orders come across his communicator. "Rescue chopper is in-bound to carry you to a transport." Moments later, they could all hear the rotors. A ladder was dropped through the treeline, and the New Vindicators escaped Camp David.

          Their ride carried them over a massive forest fire sweeping through the region. Imago briefed command over what had happened as medics went to work taking care of Maze and Vestige's injuries. Soon, they descended towards a C-5 galaxy.

          "So," Felsic said, "what's the plan?"

              Martina was by Fraction, and Fraction was watching from some distance away, Maybe S1?
              Martina tried to swallow his/her horror at his worst fear coming true. Gabrielle Curie, his last family member, had turned against him and the world.

              "Elle, our parents were going to murder zousands of innocent people!" Martina retorts. "Zey were part of an organization zat used bombs and terror as weapons against uninvolved civilians. Do not do zis, please. I miss zem too, but zis is wrong!"

                  Violet stayed by Astrid as they boarded the helicopter. She hoped the girl wouldn't wake up before they could find her some medication to help with the pain. She didn't like the idea of having a tea break while they were trapped in another dimension but it was hard to argue that many of the others needed it. "That's going to get us on an alien spaceship? They'll see it coming halfway across the continent."

                      Kas's voice was deadpan when he responded to Ms. Zlatkovski. "Really."

                      Pointing up at Dong-suk, so the young man couldn't mistake where this response was coming from. You may tell Dong-suk the young man thought he was attacking the Empire of Japan, und since possession is nine-tenths of extraordinary rendition...we're keeping him"

                      After a moment, he shook his head. "Mein apologies, that was childish. Tell him to go home before he provokes an international incident."

                      While he would like this to end peacefully, Kasimir also was beginning to want to beat someone into the dirt. Today had been challenging to his emotional equilibrium. He didn't want to put too much distance between Ms. Zlatkovski and himself, but he raised to about shoulder height, so Dong-suk knew that combat was imminent if he kept pushing.

He trailed off as he watched two of the girls--neither Tindra--and Nicholas come barreling out of the temple, along with nearly every tourist who had gone in.

                        "What the hell is going on?" Dewhurst asked as everyone seemed to be trampling each other to get through the doors.

                        Suddenly, Lex remembered what Benedikt Jónsson had said about his sister's power: "Tindra inherited our mother's ability: she can... touch something--anything! A person, or a thing, or a place... and her power makes it where no one will come near it."

Basically, she's made it so anyone who is within 40' of Tallemaja or tries to get within 40' of Tallemaja has to save against the effect or be repelled: Gliten - Power Check: 1D20+8 = [18]+8 = 26

                              Martina felt it - FLEE, RUN, LEAVE - the words screamed themselves in her/his mind. His/her body shook with it, the edges wavering indistinctly as some cells tried to obey and others did not. That apple jello ripple went through his body. But dammit, he was a Curie! With gritted teeth s/he willed him/herself to stand ground.... and more.

                              Though he wasn't sure exactly what was going on - was this a manifestation of Tallemaja's powers? was this an attack ON her? - he knew that if people were running away from Tallemaja, he wanted to be close.

                              His arms stretched their direction, aiming for Tallemaja. When his elongation kicked in, the Irish girl disguise dissolved to be replaced by his jello form. He left his Vindicator uniform off, not wanting to identify his affiliation, though he'd miss the protections of the kevlar weaves. Hopefully his liquid form would conceal his identity. Sure, it may be recognized as a Curie, but maybe it'd be mistaken for Elle (though he'd never actually seen Elle elongate in the way he could).

                              If that hits, Martin's gelatinous body snaps around the terrorist in a grapple.

                              If the grapple hits, free move to her position and grab-based Permeate activates. [I think grab-based powers activate on successful grapple]
                              "I'm getting you out of here." Martin whispers to Tallemaja. "Deep breath."

                              With that, he drags her in to the ground. [Move action]

                                Violet frowned, shaking her head. "Four of us almost died against those three."
