Graft
HP: 2


Graft tensed visibly at the mention of the technopath but quickly hid the reaction. "Yes, Number Two and Shutterbug are Guardians and we'll do what we can to find both of them."

He turned his cold eyes to regard Victoria. "I am available to escort you to your current residence, we can sort out your living arrangements at the Guardhouse after that."

Wraith
HP:1 Cnd:Worried


The news of Arty and Bug missing strikes another chord in Stephyn...We are disappearing...Eric and Penny...now Arty and Bug...Looking at Ultramarine and Rocky,"So...the Technopath has that much ability? He is deadlier than he looks. Something to rememberTurning to Graft and Bedros,"I will go into the Sanctum and work on a locator spell...maybe it will work. Ultramarine...may I have that communicator? I can use it as a focus." As he takes the communicator, Stephyn walks towards the Sanctum door. Reaching out as he passes, Stephyn claps Bedros on the shoulder,"Let me know where you guys go for food...I will be there as soon as I can"

OK...doing Ritualist with Communicator...OK, combination of Tracking, Direction, Sense, and Distance Sense/3 Ranks of Supersense: Design Check for Ritual (1d20+13=15) DC15 so passes Design step. Construction Check for Ritual (1d20+13=22)...and that Passes DC15 and 12.5 Hours later...

You move Victoria's things into the Guardhouse without incident. Ultramarine provides background checks on Singularity and Victoria to anyone who wants them. He ran them while he was looking for you guys.

After spending the evening with Rocky and Bedros' mother over cheeseburgers and milkshakes, Rocky and Ultramarine head back to Emerald City the next morning, with the recomendation to ask Singularity and Victoria to join your team.

You get a voicemail from Arty the next day saying he eloped with Jane Goodwyn. He left a small trust to help pay the team's bills.

There is no sign of Shutterbug or his secret identity. You can't find a single shred of information about him anywhere. Even the locator spell turns up nothing. It's like he never existed.

Singularity (Vincent Irons)
HP: 0
Cnd: Healthy
Location: the Guardhouse


Singularity made himself right at home in whatever rooming the Guardians allowed him. He was also a pretty energetic guest. Then again anyone that drank that grape soda would be. Somehow an X-Box and a lot of computer equipment found its way into his room. When he wasn't eating the Guardian's food and drinking their soda, he was playing dance-dance revolution, singing to music in his room, or clattering away at the keyboard.

Anyone who had the misfortune of passing his room was invited to join in his 'victory celebration'. Afterall, they had saved Olympus and escaped the clutched of a villainous syndicate in the same day. Somewhere around three in the morning he finally passed out. Still, he managed to wake up at eight in the morning no worse for his late night/early morning endeavors, and had a Bedros size bowl of choco puffs for breakfast. Situated in whatever passed for a common room he had a TV on, and was watching the news while poking at a laptop which was located a safe distance from her cereal.

Victoria
HP 0
Location her room


Spends time unpacking her belongs I just wanted to goto college and get a temp job here to get some experience using my powers, enjoys dinner with the ones that aided in her rescue. Wonders what those freaks at PSI would have done to her mentally and physically.


Settles in and hits the gym to test out her powers to see if the hacks at Psi messed them up. While heading back to her room she hears Singularity singing and pops her head around the door only to be dragged into dancing with him on a video game he was playing. After an hour her feet are aching so she asks if she can bow out and let him carry on his game.

Heading to her room to crash out, taking a long shower to get the sweat and icky feeling after what happened today. She finally breaks down and sits down crying in the shower. Im not some superhero im just a kid, i dont know if i can run with these guys they all have cool names and understanding of this lifestyle.

Turning off the water she climbs into bed to get some rest yes tomorrow will be better it cant get any worse.

Wraith
HP:1 Cnd: Tired


The door to the Sanctum finally opens to reveal a weary figure in silhouette. It stands there for a few moments braced against the doorframe and head hung low...Dammit...ain't right...nobody just disappears...nobody...unless? Is this what happened when I transdimensionaly traveled last year?...Did I just vanish for the Council?....Stretching, Stephyn cracks first his neck and then all along his back as he arches his spine. As he did, Stephyn's gaze fell back to the floor and he spied for the first time a large plate of cold cheeseburgers and a frosty cold thermos. Shaking his head, Stephyn bends down and hungrily picks up a cheeseburger and takes a bite...Bedros...Thanks...I needed that Bull...I needed that...Quickly devouring the first sandwhich cold, The Umbral Warlock cracks open the thermos to find a thick and creamy choclate shake inside, which he just as hungrily drank. Looking up, Stephyn notices that half a day has vanished. Picking up the plate with the rest of the cheeseburgers as he makes his way towards the soft soft bed in what passed for his room in the Guardhouse. Shortly after that, a low growl emerges from the room...the familiar of snoring.

Terrabull
HP: 0
Condition: One with all things

Once again he soared through the earth his very essence one with all that made up the planet. He could feel the pulses of his siblings they were strong but unlike him they werent one with their elements. They were seperated from their elements using them like tools. Still his father was getting some payback for their little family tiff on Olympus it seemed because as much as he could feel their essences he couldnt locate them. It was like feeling for something in a fog when your hands were numb.

All he could feel was their anger, the anger that derived from the more destructive side of their elements. It was gonna be a problem if he couldnt reach them. They were like him and if he couldnt reach them he would have to take them down. He shook his head figuratively since he was more energy and thought then phsycial form right now, his phsycial form was as still as the stone he flew through. Though like that stone it was full of life mroe then most people could see or udnerstand.

His mother understood it was why he was able to reach that balance within himself between tranquil earth, and raging fury. That was what he ahd to teach his siblings, help them find the balance between their destructive natures and the peaceful side the more spiritual power.

Yes that was what he was going to do, he was going to show them. Show them that the true power in them was peaceful not destructive. Wild but not uncontrolled. Pure not tainted by hatred.

He would even show his father the way if he could. Mother always tried to make sure he got along with his father even if he stubbornly held out aaginst his wishes to become a weapon against his enemies.

As he pulled out he sent one more pulse of energy to them once again affirming his bonds to them.

And after a seemingly long time he sent a pulse down to Tartarus down where he knew his Father was seething and brooding. It wasnt a pulse of anger or hatred or eevn antagonism. it was just a pulse of acknowledgement something his mother wanted him to do every fathers day. Something he'd stopped doing after a while.

He didnt wait for an asnwering pulse instead he pulled out of the earth and stood up cracking his neck and rolling his stiff shoulders as he dusted himself off. Turning he made his mind up he needed to talk to Eldritch and Serena he needed advice that was in their realm.

Drawing a sign in the air and and chanting a sequence of words in a soft language that was similar to a soft breeze. he sent the equivalent of a mystic text to Adrian Eldritch the Master Mage, and CCd Serena as well.

"Need to talk, trouble with the familiy, ASAP!"

It could be as soon as now or it could take days he honestly didnt know, he just hoped theyd contact him soon.

Taking a deep breath he stood in the center of the garden he'd carved just being one with Nature one with the world.

Today his Mom was enjoying a spa treatment before going to a local college to guest lecture at an art class. Tommorow he was going with her to Sea world. Insane as it might sound he'd always been fascinated by the creatures of the sea. Even if he couldnt spend more then an hour on a boat without getting violently ill. He remebered lazy summer days when his Mom would take him to the beach and he would play in the surf.

Granted he wasnt the greatest swimmer, he could bull paddle pretty good. Most of the time though he would just stand in the surf as the waves tried to knock him down and he would laugh in glee when they finally did. Those were days he held close to his heart because his mother would laugh with him. Seeing more through blind eyes then most sighted people could ever do.

Graft
HP: 2


Graft wandered the HQ restlessly after they'd gotten everything more or less settled. Arty just suddenly deciding to leave wasn't really out of character and Byron had always seemed restless. But for both of them to leave so suddenly and under such strange circumstances? Graft didn't like it, not the least of reasons being that he'd yet again lost people that were the closest thing to friends or family he had.

Not bothering to even try pretending to sleep, the construct walked restlessly from one end of the Guardhouse to the other, even poking his head in to observe Singularity and Victoria playing some sort of game.

Going to the garden to work through some forms to give himself something else to concentrate on, Graft was surprised to find Bedros there. After concluding that the bull was in some kind of trance, he continued his workout, although he made sure to slip away before his friend stirred. He wasn't in the mood for talking and he didn't wish to disturb Bedros.

AEGIS reports that the entire facility you were at was cleared out and all systems were completely wiped. They do promise to send any leads on PSI or Jake and his team to you, but for now they got away.

Now, each of you is adjusting to the new situation.

Graft
Mike has sent you on a mission. Steel Samurai, the man you fought at the martial arts tournament, is in Houston. They have been hired by someone, and you are to find out the 5 W's. You are outside a warehouse where you tracked them to. With you, is Mike's new student, and half-asian high school student named Jason.

Terrabull
You are at Sea World with you Mom. It's been a very relaxing day, until now. With your Mom in the ladies room and you holding the six large stuffed animals you won for her, you hear a familiar voice.

"Hello, Bedros." You turn and see Medea.

Singularity
You are in Freedom City. Some guy named Mike showed up yesterday and spirited you and Victoria off to Freedom League HQ to "test" you. Nobody on the team seemed to object. Your training in the Freedom League's combat simulator was unique to say the least. Mold demons and Will o' Wisps. Crazy clowns and giant slime monsters. What's worse, most of them where hard light constructs, so your nano-hive couldn't affect them.
Still, Mike seemed satisfied with your performance. It took you another four hours to get all the mold out, but that's another story.
So today, while Victoria is "testing," you are exploring Freedom City. You realize that for the last hour, a man in a trench coat has beeen following you.

Victoria
You are in the Freedom League's combat simulator. Some odd, fourty-something man showed up yesterday and spirited you and Singularity off to "test" you. The scariest thing about the whole thing was the way Wraith wished you 'luck.' After seeing what Singularity went through yesterday, you are quite a bit nervous.
"Any questions?" Mike asks from the exit.

Wraith
You are alone at the Guardhouse. There is a knock at the door. You answer to find an Irish man with red hair in a brown trench coat. "Thomas Rhymer. I hear you are looking for some information on Fontaine."

Terrabull
HP: 1
Condition: Was happy

"Why are you here Medea?" he rumbled in that tone that he used when he wanted to let someone know they were on dangerous ground and had better watch their step. It was a tone like unto an earthquake as it built up to the point of shaking buildings to the ground.

He stood near the bathroom wearing his Freedom City Knights jersey and to this point had been having a plenty fun day. Heck he even enjoyed getting splashed by Shamoo inspite of the fact it left him with wet fur.

Now though he had to deal with this. What was it with people waiting till his mother was in the Bloody bathroom to confront him? Couldnt they wait till she was safe in bed or in her hotel room?

"Father's in Tartarus and his little scheme is unraveled, and I dont think you'll find Ares to be as willing a partner." He rumbled.

He had to conciously hold back the connection to the earth because if he didnt it would have rumbled and growled with his agitation, and that would have drawn his moms attention.

"Oh, you're totally right. Ares doesn't want anything to do with me, a wanna be, whatever. I got what I want. I have Hecate's essence, and your Dad isn't in Olympus anymore. Win-win for everyone."
