    Re: New Vindicators Academy of Europe #15: Deport (IC)

    LUX (Violet; NPCs: Jakob, Mattias, Mike, Rose, Wolf)
    "Sure you do," Jakob growled. "Your boyfriend only sucker-punched me, and you had to check and see if he was okay, but you care about me.

    "C'mon, Mat. Let's go check on our friend."

    Ignoring Violet, Jakob and Mat left the club, seeking out Wolf.

    LUX (Lex; NPCs: Kirstie)
    "Believe me," Kirstie said, stealing another kiss, "I don't wanna be apart from you, either."

    As they headed out, so did the boy Mike had punched.

    HOFBURG PALACE: THE DUNGEON (Kas and Jack; NPCs: Bulwark, Drifter, Gabriel, Gabrielle)
    The warden stomped forward until he stood before Kas. Towering above the blind boy, the hulking brute looked about ready to throttle him. Suddenly, his arms moved and wrapped around Kas. He hugged him gently. "There!" Bulwark bellowed. "Was that so bad!?!"

    NVAE: NEWTON'S OFFICE (Martin; NPCs: Newton)
    Rembrandt answered the phone, and listened to Martin's story of what had happened. "Strange," he said. "I know Joan could summon animals to her bidding, but she was apprehended by your classmates months ago. To the best of my knowledge, she's being kept in a manner that denies her the ability to evoke arcana.

    "What about Tallemaja? I mean, transforming into a bird is not outside of her wheelhouse."

      watched Kirstie go with a sigh before stuffing his hands in his pockets and heading for the door.

      It was kind of shame, as it was going only one person might actually see the show. Bottom was probably going to be disappointed by that.

      He gave the other two boys heading out a sideways glance. He recognized one of them as the guy that Mike had punched. But he didn't have any reason to bug them, so he did his best to ignore them as he headed outside to wait for Kirstie.

        Violet Lear
        HP: 2

        "Jakob, wait...." Jakob didn't wait. Frustration boiled over and Violet stopped suppressing her powers, dropping half the club into arctic conditions. She snarled at the bouncer. "I'm the NS! And you can sod off!" She didn't wait for an answer before turning and storming out of the club. This was all Rose's fault. Violet was sure of it. She was looking for her or Mike as soon as she was out the door.

          "And zat would 'ave been suspicious to ze cafeteria staff and friends at meal times. Mt initial zought was zat maybe she 'ad bound a familiar but ze animal was not ze same one I observed watching Lex and I from our initial large group meeting.

            OUTSIDE LUX (Lex and Violet; NPCs: Jakob, Mat, Mike, Rose, Wolf)
            As they were headed out, a chill washed over everyone. "I'm the NS!" Violet snarled as Wolf and Mike were ejected. "And you can sod off!"

            Outside, Lex watched as Violet fumed. Rose put a gentle hand on the bruise Mike had received. "We should get you back to the school," she was telling him.

            Wolf stood out by the street, looking up and down it. He was on his phone. "I've got one," he said, as Jakob and Mat walked up to him.

            "I thought you had to work, Wolf!" Jakob called.

            Wolf waved them away. "I do," he snapped. "I am." He caught sight of Violet and looked away. "Take Violet, and get her back to her school."

            NVAE: NEWTON'S OFFICE (Martin; NPCs: Newton)
            "If zere is a neosapian 'oo can communicate wiz birds or animals ze school 'as no record of such, or at least, I could not find it." Then again, Lex and Kirstie had encountered a Neo-Sapien capable of controlling birds during their trip to London...

            During Martin's experience with Elemenoh...

            "We should also meet to discuss ze new plan wiz ze 'Eadmaster and discuss furzer ze plan to magically examine someone Tallemaja 'as cast mind spells upon. You can do zat wizout ozerwise interrupting ze evening, yes?"

            "Absolutely, so long as they're away from the school."

              Lex drew his jacket closer around him as a wall of cold suddenly slammed into him. It was somewhat expected, since march wasn't the warmest of months, but he'd expected it as he walked outside, not coming at him from the entrance of the club.

              His eyebrows raised in surprise as he saw Violet. He hadn't expected anybody from the school to be in there, especially after how much trouble they'd had getting in.

              He let out a huff of steam as he looked around. Three guys standing off to the side with Violet closing on them, two of them who had fought with Mike. And then Mike and Rose on the other side.

              The surprising part was that Rose hadn't ditched him to stay in the club. That he hadn't expected.

              Still he didn't have any interest in talking to her at the moment, so he just stood off to the side and waited.

                "Bitch!"
                Violet screamed at Rose. She stomped past Lex and the boys to get to the Italian hussy. "It's your fault he's got that bruise in the first place!"

                  Lex face palms, fighting a shiver as Violet storms past.

                  It's none of my business, he told himself, they'll just yell a bit and that'll be it.

                  He couldn't help but think he was doomed, this was going to go pear shaped, and that Kirstie was going to be pissed at him. He glanced over to see what the other three guys were doing.

                    The Blue Knight

                    This place was so weird-why didn't they carry guns? It was 2009-he was pretty sure. Swords were proper cool, but these people probably knew even more than most (at least back home) how dangerous SPBs could be. Sides, swords were tricky to use.

                    "How do." He said, sword crackling soundlessly in his hand. He thought about just asking them to step aside-these guys were just doing their job, they were probably decent people. Actually, four of them were probably decent people. Four of them were probably wankers. And four of them were probably just whatever. Any road, he had to get by. He wasn't scared to fight them-but if he didn't take them out, sharpish, they could cause him and his problems later on.

                    "Sorry."

                    Gwyn concentrated, feeling the power within him. He felt twisted about this: Paladin had trained him to help people, to not use violence unless it was necessary. And now he was going to burn total strangers for the crime of showing up to work today. A very small part of him-the part that ran him down when he was alone, like that empty space-was going to enjoy it, too. They were weak, he was strong.

                    His claymore vanished and the fire burning around his body pulsed, wings flaring. They grew, becoming ten, fifteen meters in length. Then he spun through the air, his wings passing through wood, and stone, and metal and harming the guards' very minds.

                    Power-stunting Strike 8, Burst Area. One rank should be enough to fill the room and hit all the guards.
                    If any are left standing, Gwyn will do it again. Non-lethal.

                      OUTSIDE LUX (Lex and Violet; NPCs: Jakob, Mat, Mike, Rose, Wolf)
                      Wolf rounded on Violet with a desperate look. "Leave it, Violet!" he said, putting himself between her and Rose. "Just go back to the school with Jakob and Mat." He kept looking nervously over his shoulder. Something triggered in him at the sight of a van coasting down the street. "I've got this handled, okay?"

                      "Handled how?" asked Jakob.

                      Wolf offered no explanation. Waving his friend off, he broke away, and headed towards Mike and Rose.

                      Mike tensed as Wolf approached. He balled his hands into fists, ready to fight the boy who had jumped him in the club.

                      Wolf raised his hands in surrender. "Whoa," he said. "I'm not here to fight." Keeping his hands raised, Wolf pointed to Rose, while looking at the van.

                      The van stopped behind Mike and Rose. The side door slid open. A guy leaned out and grabbed Rose. As he pulled her in, he began shouting to the driver in another language.

                      As the van began to drive off, Lex was reminded of a similar scene months ago--girls pulled off the street, and sold in other countries.

                      And they had just taken Rose.

                      HOFBURG PALACE: NORTH TOWER (Blue Knight; NPCs: Astrid, Guards)
                      The first eruption of hellfire took out four of the guards; the next round left only one standing. Sword drawn, the dungeon guard swung for the Blue Knight, only for the Welsh teen to easily dodge the blow.

                      Deeper into the labyrinthine tunnels, Blue Knight could hear reinforcements shouting. <<"Freiherr Ulrich!">> someone shouted in German. <<"Someone find Freiherr Ulrich!">>

                          It was like a nightmare that rolled through his head again and again.

                          He saw the kid closing in on Mike again at a fast clip and unconsciously pulled his hands out of his pockets and took a step in that direction. Mike was in no condition for a second round, and as much as he had no interest in getting involved he wasn't going to sit around for some jackass beating the piss out of him.

                          The raised hands gave him pause and confused him, drawing his attention until it was too late. He watched as Wolf pointed and then saw it happen again. The van rolled up, the door slammed open and Rose was dragged off.

                          Just like six months ago.

                          He twitched as the memories flooded back. He could smell Alina's shampoo, the smell of iron in the air, terror as he ran for the van leaving Kirstie behind, watching the lighting take her down while white hot agony ripped through his back. The taste of the water.

                          He'd nearly let his best friend be taken into slavery. To be drugged, beaten, used and killed.

                          Another dead girl on his head.

                          The electricity tore from his eyes and flooded over his entire body, lighting him up, a beacon of light against the darkening of the light as he charged forward roaring in fury. The plan was simple. Get inside before they could close the door. Then all bets would be off.

                            CAFÉ LANDTMANN (Martin; NPCs: Rembrandt, Tatjana)
                            The next day, Martin escorted his girlfriend to the café where Rembrandt waited. It was good to see that the man possessed some common sense: gone was the hardee hat and eccentric way he dressed. His blonde hair was down, to better hide his face, and his svelte frame was stuffed into a shirt and pants. Casually reading the newspaper, he looked like a normal person, and not at all like the flamboyant man Tatjana would remember from the mall.

                            Tatjana ordered coffee and cake. When the server left with the couple's order, she reached across the table, and beckoned Martin to put his hand in hers. She smiled at him serenely. "I love you," she told him. "When I'm with you, I'm just so happy."

                            Martin's phone buzzed with an incoming text message from Rembrandt: She is geased to be happy. Small enchantment like subliminal command. Might last a few days. Maybe a week or two.

                                Violet stood frozen in disbelief for a moment. Then, in the corner of her eye, she saw Lex moving and reacted. She reached out and fired a beam of ice at the front tire of the van.

                                Initiative roll (1d20 + 6=22)
