GOING ROGUE: Prologue
Bay City modern day
In a mansion just outside Bay City set up in the areas Santa Cruz mountains a handsome man dressed impeccable and escorted by a young Chinese woman similarly dressed tours the newly completed manor. The pair walk through the numerous rooms each set up in a Spartan fashion for one of five individuals to reside in as they desired and to decorate to their tastes. As they tour further they see other amenities including the pool with its small rock formations and waterfalls, a backyard view that extends out to the oceans of the pacific and the Monterey bay, and the redwood trees all around.
Deeper inside they explore a sub basement reinforced to military bunker level strength with a laboratory and a computer, and a room that can best be described as a cross between library and a mages tower. Beneath that level a wide football field sized wreck room sits, and below that the manors primary power source a donated arc reactor.
The man boggles momentarily that he was allowed to receive these gifts as the manor even for his considerable wealth would have been exorbitantly expensive but the trio of women that ran Oracle Incorporated had been shockingly generous. He had been half tempted to sweep for bugs and other monitoring devices but then had laughed at the thought drawing an odd look from the young woman who accompanied him nearly everywhere he went. IF those 3 wanted to spy on him, no mundane tech would be needed, nor would any powers or knowledge he possessed be enough. He enjoyed a small chuckle at his cleverness in figuring out the secret of that trio, an amazing gift they had, and it gave rise to an amazing power to shape world events.
And events were coming, oh such events as would shake the world to tis foundations. As the pair paused at the manors computer room where its state of the art system hummed quietly the system recognized them both and its friendly AI asked them if it could offer assistance. The gentleman brought up a series of screens showing dark figures moving in shadows far away on a group of islands rarely visited by civilized men.
The young woman at his side narrowed her eyes dangerously at the images, and he knew that if looks could kill those on the screen would be laying dead that moment.
"Don't worry,." he spoke consolingly "You will get your chance at them very soon."
She considered him carefully but made no reply beyond a nod of acceptance.
turning off the screen and returning to the manors upper 2 floors the man and woman passed the manors library and stepped out its front doors into the large front lawn. The walls that separated the property from the rest of the area to keep nosey viewers out were lined with security precautions for intruders not deterred by walls and no trespassing signs.
Nodding at this the man turned to the young woman well my dear, shall we begin?
She nodded and the two turned to reenter the mansion both knowing that things were about to get very interesting.
