    Overseer Griklik

    ''Without eating anyone, clearly. Neutralize the revolting prisoners." Griklik states, as he descends into the lower levels. As he passes by the ramp, his form turns reflective and soon is completely gone from sight.

    Loves made a face. He knew the overseer was right. Hiding in a corner somewhere was no guarantee of safety at this point. If anything, not helping re-establish order could mean the death of everyone not locked up, a renewed conflict with the natives, possible intergalactic scandal; if the wrong people were sent to handle it, even nuking from orbit wasn't off the table.

    It wouldn't be pretty.

    Resignedly, he leapt from nook to cranny, following Ashani and Griklik downwards while trying to remain somewhat discreet.

    Leaping downstairs, but trying to maintain a semblance of concealment. Hopefully the lighting and general confusion will help with that.

    "Alright, alright! Jeez!" Ashani snaps back at the Beholder, her head-tendrils whipping around her head in annoyance.

    Nevertheless, she follows the Overseer down to the lower levels, slithering down on anything she's able to coil around, like a stealthy predator approaching her prey.

    Torn on whether to look for Mithranium wiring yet or just to take a step back and take in the system more fully, Xarvalis makes little progress ...

    Gaar'o cracks his neck in anticipation and sprints off towards the lower levels, taking the most direct route possible (even if it's not necessarily the most practical).

    Re: Xenoforce: C.3: Apprehensive Reunions

    Everyone moving downstairs manages to get to the action in little to know time, to a sight of pure carnage. The unmoving forms of inmate and warden alike are everywhere down here at ground level, where most of the action has been. Almost every cell down here had been opened during the initial blackout, and the sheer number of them must have been an instant overwhelming force to the scattering of officers keeping an eye on things. Help must've come from outside, as currently there's a defensive line of Human and Officers trying their damnedest to keep the tide back against the perhaps fifty strong mob of criminals threatening to spill outwards yet again.

    Not everyone is bunched up in that section as your eyes can see, smaller battles are taking place all along this corridor. The one that draws the most attention from you however, are three officers and a native taking cover against some debris, the sthyss they had just brought in looming dangerously from a raised plat form. His mouth is extended wide, in a striking pose Ashani is very adept and familiar with. Yet instead of lunging to snatch up a poor unfortunate soul, red mist seems to seep out in a haze. From under his uniform you can see the subtle blue glow of cybernetically embedded lights, trailing down the entire expanse of his torso.

    His eyes snap to the newcomers as they travel down, narrowing in agitation as the lights slowly fade to black, becoming unnoticeable once again. "Female," It calls, voice ragged and unused. "Feast with us! Join in the hunt."

    "Nz-Clk, there's two of them now!" A reptilian looking biped swears, alarm sweeping across it's dozen eyes.

    "Not for long!" Boasts one of the three, as she takes a heavy looking weapon into her avian claws, pointing it toward Ashani.

    You have a brief moment to try something before combat has a chance to start. Xarvalis, keep it going my man. You can do it!

    Ashani can't help but feel conflicted - had things gone very differently, she would have joined the male with little hesitation, but now that runs counter to her plans.
    Ignoring the weapon pointed at her, the female Sthyss' lips part, forming a toothy grin as she stares at the male. Her head-tendrils flare out around her head threateningly and she slowly slither towards him. "If you eat any of them, I'm going to eat you."

    "We're here to help you, you morons!" Gaar'o shouts at them "Do we look like we're prisoners!? Do you not recognise your lak'ard commander!? Is the Authority that poorly managed!?"

    A success on both counts!
    While the woman before you is undoubtedly confused, seeing no sign of your hidden companion, she seems willing to concede that you're not among the escapees. For one, you're wearing new clothing that was provided, not the normal prisoner uniforms you had on upon crashing down. From higher up the yellow eyes of the sthyss loose their fierce smolder, it's head tendrils drooping in submission to the more powerful looking female. Yet instead of surrender or continuing to fight, it instead starts to climb back up the walls.

    "This is not the end, female," He warns, as the lights along his length start to brighten again. "When the time comes, you will learn to embrace our unity. And when you do," The prisoner turns toward a wide, flat section of the bulkhead, the one with the crack running up it's length.

    "We will feast on this world." His jaws suddenly snap open, letting fourth an intense beam of red light. Shouting comes from everywhere as the eyes of prisoner and guard alike are drawn toward the destructive blast. Officers struggle to find their wits, fumbling for their guns only too late as the lance of destruction dies away, revealing a massive whole red hot around the edges. The sthyss coils himself like a spring, and lunges out of the newly formed hole.
