PostSubject: Episode 1: The First Ladder   Mon Sep 18, 2017 7:02 pm

Episode Description:
 

Cold. It had to be cold. Colder. Coldest. Adrian needed to douse himself in icy water in order to relax himself. Some may say he would be a fitting owner to fruits of ice. Adrian liked the cold touch of water too much to give it up, so obtaining such a power wasn't part of his aspirations. As he showered in icy-cold water at the marine base, he recalled flashes of his childhood. Gripping his fists tightly, he started breathing heavy and fast. He could feel his body tensing up and shake, anger welling up. He was glad he showered in isolation, for no one could come in and hear him yell out as he attacked the wall before him.

This was an everyday thing, and he didn't know if anyone knew. It was the same wall, and he chipped at it anytime he showered. Always alone, always in such cold temperatures. Adrian turned around and rested his back against the damaged wall, sliding into a sitting position. This sad, angry part of him that seemed so unstable was not one people got to see. He didn't put on this show for others. If Adrian didn't release this emotion, he'd eventually succumb to letting it build up too much. After a while, Adrian finished his shower and packed up his things to return to his quarters. Though, not without slipping on his full-body suit.

Marines were the only thing that helped him maintain discipline. That wasn't the only reason he joined up, but it was a very strong benefit. As he left the shower room, he passed by a few cynically laughing marines who had clearly suppressed whatever they were saying as Adrian passed. Fellow Marines shouldn't be hiding anything with that kind of attitude, it just makes them suspicious. He didn't look back, though he was devilishly curious. Once he heard their voices disappear, he turned and quietly made his way to the entrance of the shower room.

Faintly, he heard voices discuss what sounded like a business deal with a rather shady name, "Rat-Ear". Rats. At least they weren't Weasels. Knowing that he was unfamiliar, but suspecting illegal dealings, he left to go do some research.




Adrian was livid to discover that "Rat-Ear" was a pirate that scoured across the West Blue. He poisoned the waters he sailed with human and drug-trafficking. He was currently wanted dead or alive for quite the sum, and he was quite ballsy for coming even an inch closer than he should be to Las Camp. It made sense, however, with crooked marines helping a filthy pirate make money off of the Marine island. There were likely more Marines in on the scandal that helped Rat-Ear enter undetected.

Once he was far from his quarters, he assumed casual clothes without his disguise. Patrolling around the town, he slipped into the general public undetected. Spending hours simply looking for any familiar faces from the small group that passed by him earlier, he eventually stopped near the port. Finding the faces he saw before, he remained as calm and nonchalant as possible. He acted like a citizen simply enjoying the freedom and protection the Marines brought.

Taking in the air, a hearty marine came up and patted him on the shoulder. Internally, he wanted to gut the marine. Externally, he smiled back at the marine and noticed it was one of the small group from before. Burly and hairy and quite handsome, but disgusting on the inside. While the marine seemed perfectly giddy and heroic, Adrian already knew he was scum. "Hey, Kid. Enjoying the ocean smell?" Adrian chuckled lightly, intentionally flirtatious in attempt to get a response from the marine.

"Yeah. I know it doesn't REALLY smell the best, but seeing it and knowing what you guys did for us...Simply wonderful." Adrian ended his words with a light, quick wink. The marine smiled, being a bit more feely with his hand on Adrian's shoulder. "Aye, why don't you come around later and I can take you on a quick tour of the entrance into the Blue?" Adrian put a hand to his mouth, forcing himself to blush. "Oh, well, I'd love that. I'll see you tonight then?" "Aye, well...I must return to my duties. Oh, my name's Rodney. Your's?" Adrian put the hand on his mouth to his chest.

"Alex." Adrian nodded and skipped away. Hating every moment of the movement, Adrian knew this would take a bit of reconnaissance to expose. He didn't know who was involved, so this was going to be a solo mission. Time to prepare to gut some rotten fish.

Adrian wanted to play around the allure he had over Rodney, wearing slim clothing. His shirt was made of a very light material as well as his shorts being a bit...short. He wasn't against using his body to expose someone, and knew that he could cause "unintentional" issues with the more homophobic marines. The hyper-masculinity among the soldiers was disgusting and weak. Adrian, for one, didn't understand the issue they had with who people got their rocks off to. Secondly, masculinity was a fragile concept and always led to the weakening of man.

He didn't care how feminine he seemed; something some may say would be contradictory to the whole idea of him wearing a disguise while on duty. Adrian knew he couldn't bring anything along, especially since he wanted to seem frail enough. He even did his best to mask all of his scars, aside the ones that were clearly visible, with makeup. If anything, Rodney would likely protect him. Otherwise, he'd show his true colors and that'd give Adrian enough reason to be less merciful with his justice.




Nearing the docks, Adrian saw one of the buildings surrounding the docks lit up. Assuming that was where he was going to find Rodney, he moved forward. Moments later, he was abruptly stopped by the one and only. Pretending to be thrown into a state of shock and fear, Rodney stopped him from letting a scream rip. "Shhh, Shh! I didn't think you'd scream if I pranked ya. Come on, let's go on a trip." Adrian shook his head with beady eyes and a weak pout. Soon, they were on a small fishing boat riding the night shore.

At the very least, Adrian liked the cold that brushed along the water. The icy moon raised high into the sky shined down and gave light to the distance. He liked the cold, but it still pricked at his bad memories. Touching his facial scar, he caught Rodney looking shocked. "I, uh...noticed your scars. I'm surprised you weren't more shy." Adrian giggled, biting his lower lip momentarily. "Yeah...I've learned to ignore them. I know they're kindaaaa ugly." At the end of his sentence, Adrian breathed through his teeth to accentuate his distaste for the scars.

"Well, Alex, I think they look just fine. Especially in a world where someone could be made of rubber or even somehow made of pure elements. This world is too crazy not to have scars." Adrian leaned back, resting on his arms and crossing one leg over the other. "Oh? So philosophical on our first...uh...time hanging out. You must be extremely intuitive and devilishly smart!" Adrian winked at Rodney, making him blush and look away.

Even if you aren't one of them, you're still as dim-witted as any one of these fools. Hmph. Adrian kicked the superior leg in his position, feeling a silence settling. The two just looked at each other for a while as they sailed. Mr. Knight was severely annoyed while Rodney took it as a romantic moment. "Uh, actually had something I wanted to show you. Mind if we had back to shore?" I better be getting dinner out of this.

Sure enough, they returned to shore and entered the lit-up shack, and it was a small table adorned with cheap clothe and an assortment of small dishes. "Is this what you wanted to show me?" Rodney smiled, hugging Adrian as he came to his side. "Yeah, that this is a date." Adrian smiled and immediately took a seat. Oh dear, I hope he doesn't expect much after this.

They took a while to eat, exchanging small banter and Adrian handily lying about himself. Alexander King. Rich family. Religious up-bringing. Child of the lord who could do no wrong. Rodney ate it up as he really saw a kind, cute boy in front of him. A sadistic torture device was a more fitting description. Leaning on his own hands, Adrian looked deeply into Rodney's eyes. The fool drank his cheap sink-wine, nearly spitting it out at the sudden intimate engagement.

Adrian heard people outside and giggled hard, trying to catch their attention. Rodney did not hear them and laughed nervously. Soon, a duo entered the shack with loud, booming voices. "Oi! Rodney, still messin' wit' that dear girl of yo-" The first man stopped, shocked in place. The second was much angrier. Perfect. "Uh, Rodney, you havin' some drinks wit' an ol' boy of your's? Where the girl go?" Adrian then started putting on a show of his own.

Looking greatly flustered, Adrian started reddening in the face. "Did you tell your "mates" that you were on a date with a girl? I am very much NOT a girl." Rodney stood up as Adrian pretended to try and storm out. He fully expected one of the two that entered to be the more aggressive type. "Alex--" "Save it! Probably spit all kinds of...gross about what you wanted to do with me!" The angrier intruder cracked his knuckles and stood in Adrian's way.

Adrian pretended to not see him as she turned away from Rodney and bumped into him. "Mate...He was basically salivating at the idea of tearing up your cat. Except there ain't no cat, is there? Never seen my boy with a girl before, sounded fishy...guess I shouldn't be surprised he's into smoking salmon." Adrian forced himself into a shiver to really pump confidence into the angry marine's demeanor.

"W-well....salmon aren't really-" "SHUT YER TRAP! Already caught my boy in it. Come on, gotta punish you for your crimes." Adrian tried juking the marine, but was gripped up by the neck and dragged on the ground. Rodney was petrified, scared of his peers. "RODNEY! D-DON'T LET THEM DO THIS TO ME!" Moments before leaving the shack in the hands of a likely brutal homophobe, he watched Rodney sit back down and continue eating. Hm. I guess this is one way to get a lead. Figures that dude is just a pussy. I think he deserves this beating more than I do. Oh well...

The marines drug Adrian into a dark, isolated part of the docks and proceeded to beat him. Slurs and general insults all around were spit in his face. Sometimes, there was literal spit in his face. After a while, Adrian acted like the surface wounds were more than they were and slowed his breathing. When they thought he passed out, the two left. Looking at the moon, Adrian sat up and spit a gob of bloody phlegm and shivered at the splat it made. That was scarier than a couple grunts. Well, I guess this is the part where I follow them. They are definitely in on it.[/color]

Bruised and slightly bloody, Adrian followed the path of the blockheads who he let beat him. While it infuriated him that he had to go that far in order to truly bait something out, he did what he had to do. That didn't mean that those three's heads weren't going to be on his trident later, however, and he personally promised himself they'd be the first to go. Approaching the shack that he had dinner in, he over-heard the marines berating Rodney for having interests that went against their beliefs. "HOW DARE YOU...even THINK about smokin' on his chicken!" What? Adrian tried his best not to laugh, which would've blown his cover had he burst out like he wanted to.

It was mostly the more aggressive of the duo that beat him that yelled at Rodney, which went on for far too long. Eventually, he over-heard them speak about meeting up with "the others". This instantly piqued his interest, so he waited for them to leave. Rodney left the shack with quite the shiner, likely the rabid bigot that smacked him around. As they moved away from the main area, Adrian followed them all the way to a massive ship-loading station.

Realizing that he would have to rely on the environment for his spy-work, Adrian detoured and used nearby buildings to climb like a ladder onto the top of the station. There were balcony windows leading onto an upper floor, which he waited before using. Once he felt he was clear, he spied on the marines from above. As he listened to them speak, he knew they used small talk to pass the time while they checked the place for anyone FOOLISH enough to follow THEM? It was quite DIFFICULT and DANGEROUS and they'd never get caught!

Adrian looked around for some sort of office to hide in, expecting something used by the managers over-looking the station. As he found it, he quietly moved his way into said office. As two lunkheads searched the upper floor he was on, which was basically an elevated metal platform attached to the office, he made sure be ready when they neared. He hid once they came towards the office, but they half-assed their search and just looked into the window of the office. Once they were collected down on the lower floor, Adrian quietly exited the office.

Hearing them speak about meeting with Rat-Ear and his crew for the next shipment, he clenched his fist. Filthy traitors, I got 'em! But...I don't have anything hard on them. As he listened, he heard the duo from before get ready to bring up Rodney's excursion. Rodney was able to stop the more supportive tweedle, but the rabid one nearly yelled it out. Adrian realized he saw those from the showers, which meant there were several marines involved. Quite the operation, he had to give it to them.

Eventually, more gathered and were filled in with updates. There were nearly fifty traitorous marines. Dirty. Disgusting. Marines who didn't truly believe in the power of LAW. The one true medium in which any good or evil could act. Animals. Adrian waited until the location was revealed, which seemed to indicate that they changed locations frequently to remain well-hidden. With that, he made his way for home.




Adrian was up late that night, crafting a room for operations complete with a map riddled with tacs and a big table for prep. He knew that he couldn't wander out without his suit on now, and he needed to be quick on his feet. Tomorrow is it. I'm by myself. Fifty marines. Fifty weak animals. I'll crush them. Adrian laid out all the tools he was going to retrieve after his daily duties and even marked the spot they were going to receive the delivery. He had a picture of Rat-Ear's wanted poster, which lacked any poster for his crew so they were likely all weak as well.

Killing was definitely an option for him, but knocking out as many marines as he could without making it a total bloodbath was more important. Adrian was going to take a few heads, though. Reprimands or not, he needed to bring ultimate justice down on the treacherous vermin. Adrian moved to his room, making a stop by his mirror. He was shirtless and the makeup had worn from his sweat. The scars made images flash, and then he thought about Tequila Wolf. Marines were scoundrels too, the title meant nothing. The faction, at surface level, meant nothing. All that mattered was conviction, strength and one's own sense of JUSTICE.

Adrian had that. The endurance through conviction. The might through strength. The opportunity through justice and law. These were insects that littered the meaning of being a Marine. Time to extinguish the roaches.

Adrian spent some time training outside, doing various different exercises to warm himself up for the night operation. After a while, he began showing off his prowess with a quarterstaff. Whirling it around his body as well as showing off the movement he can attain through the length of wood had begun to draw some attention. A group of marines came up to him, brandishing training weapons. "Oi, you're that Knight guy? Aye?" The first of the three spoke, whom had brandished two lengths of wood half the length of Adrian's quarterstaff. Dual-wielder that likely relied on speed.

"Yeah, yo! Heard you never take that suit off, do you even shower?" The second had been messing around with a kendo sword, his form was a lot less refined than the first and likely was a sloppy fighter. The third didn't use any weapon and was the most reserved, likely being the best fighter among the trio. "Hm. Yeah, how do you even breathe?" Adrian just looked at them, shrugging and resting his staff on his neck. He didn't answer them with words, only vague body language.

"Oi, hidin' a stitched mouth?" The first prodded, taking a step forward. Apparently they didn't like Adrian's little show. The second tried stopping him and the third stepped forward with the first. "Yeah, I'd hope you weren't being rude." Adrian just looked at the unarmed marine through his pale contacts. "That's a nice little stare you have there." Adrian felt like it was a schoolyard and the bullies had found their first target. "What are we doing then? You guys here for a show or?" The bare-fist marine closed the distance, getting in Adrian's face.

"I'd like to think we're here to make sure your day goes well. Y'know, just checking up on you. Making sure you know what you're getting into." Adrian didn't budge, but he realized that the three had likely saw him returning late at night and knew he wasn't in on the scandal going on. Adrian slammed the staff firmly into the ground, planting it. "I know exactly what I'm doing. Wouldn't be a marine if I didn't." "Yeah? That's good." "You want to make a scene here? In my room? in some alley? When?"

The marine patted Adrian on the shoulder and the trio prepared to walk off, dispelling their training weapons. "Oh, well, whenever we feel like it, really. You'll know when." Adrian spit at them when they walked away. "It could be now, it could be. But it's kinda public, it's kinda obvious and really...we haven't eaten and I showered because of an early day date. Y'know? You aren't high on our agenda." That's the biggest mistake you've made. If you saw me last night, then I guess...that's just unfortunate.




The wall was red. Crimson-splashed. Three pairs of ears pinned by needles. The square was full of horrified faces and screaming. Scarred children and fearful mothers. Nobody understood the message, but some of the marines there did. They understood completely. While Adrian had to miss their meeting with Rat-Ear, the pressure would certainly bring him out. The mauled bodies of the three marines who threatened Adrian with knowledge hung from the corner of the building. All three were missing their ears.

There was no elaborate fight. They were grunts, nothing special. But Adrian still had to send a message. This would raise the suspicion of marines who were both involved and not involved. However, if everything went according to plan...this would just symbolize a pirate making it known that he owned this town. Once thwarted, a tumor would successfully be removed. Adrian knew this, and knew he had to draw Rat-Ear out. There were no words on the wall, simply blood and traitor ears.

Adrian showered the mess off of himself, staring into the scarred wall that he always beat. His hands were stiff as stone from all the pummeling he did, likely. After he was all clean, he put on his disguise and moved back to his quarters and prepared for the operation. This time, he had to use the utmost stealth to scout out their plans. It was likely going to be more than simple illegal trades, they would be on red alert. The trade would likely halt while the actual night patrols took it up a notch to keep the streets criminal-free.

The meetings would likely take place outside of the city, so he'd need to find a way to follow them off the Island. Using the map to draw a plan of action, he geared up and headed out for the night.

Adrian sprinted across various rooftops with light feet, armed to the tooth with tools tailored for espionage. He kept a keen eye out for the patrols peaking around every nook and crany with their lanterns. First he'd be wary of the smell of burning oil, and then he'd look for any bit of piercing light. While he made sure to avoid the patrols, he followed any clearly suspicious marine roaming the streets. They all seemed to converge towards the docks; this seemed typical as Adrian did catch them in a warehouse earlier.

When Adrian neared the docks, he dismounted the buildings he was traveling on and into an alley. He saw approaching lights from one direction and retreated into the darkness. Once they passed and it had been a moment, he emerged from the alley. Once he got the opportunity, he hid behind a shack on the way to the warehouse. He knew that chunks of the traitorous would come by, several shadows passing him every now and then. Once he deemed it safe, he made his way into the warehouse.

Unsurprisingly, he found them preparing a rather large ship to quietly paddle on out of Las Camp. Marine after marine loaded onto the ship; Adrian only had moments to follow them. After the last marine entered the ship, Adrian hooked onto the edge of it and used shuko to grip onto the side. Here we go. Time to meet with good ol' Rat-Ear. The ship was off into the night, moving slowly and lacking lighting so that they would sail under the radar.




With a bit of distance from a mini-island not far from Las Camp, Adrian removed himself from the ship and flanked the entry point so that he wouldn't be discovered. The island was a thick jungle, but a path into it was very clear. This path likely led to Rat-Ear's base of operations. Hiding in the trunks above marine heads, Adrian maneuvered through the jungle undetected. Following them, he eventually saw a warm light radiating from afar. The closer he got, the brighter it became until an opening emerged and he saw a massive bonfire with pirates drinking their senses away. Numerous tents were scattered across the camp hidden within the jungle.

The fifty marines entered the scene and all of the pirates suddenly became hostile. This was only a split moment that turned into the pirates being incredibly friendly with the marines. From the largest, most decorated tent came Rat-Ear. He was a monstrous man, standing at nearly seven feet and adorned with various pelts. In his right hand, he dragged a bone-ribbed club. His ears, of course, were akin to a rat's. To further the theme, he had a necklace of rat ears hanging loosely from his neck.

He had a gold piercing on his nose like a bull along with his left ear having several tight piercings on it. He spoke with the loudest voice in the whole party, a mix of grunge and high-pitch. "Aye, I see you come to give me good news? Sorry about your men, of course. Are things still hot?" The leader of the marines, the man he originally ran into back at the showers, had stepped forward. "Eh...It's still a bit rough so trade should still hold off for a while. I have a bit of compensation ready for ya as an apology since this was clearly on my end. Someone's onto us and we had a lead. But...well, that's why we're on high alert. They were our lead."

Rat-Ear paced, banging his club on the ground out of frustration. "Alrigh', our little deal isn't quite over. You blue-hats just need to find this little shit and arrest him for the murder of three sweet, innocent marines." The marine leader shrugged, being handed a hefty bag and signalling one of Rat-Ear's men to come on over and take it. The marine and pirate talked about what their course of action was gonna be, and when they finally agreed that finding Adrian and arresting him was the best idea. Then killing him for "resisting arrest and killing one of their own marines". They were likely going to execute a marine and himself if Adrian failed his mission.

"Another thing...if you find him. Let me know. I'll be smuggled in smooth like butter so I can take his ears." "Just like my men. Deal." The meeting ended there, and everyone returned to the ship. They didn't need all those men for a meeting like that, so they likely either wanted to be able to defend in case of Rat-Ear betraying them or they had something up their sleeves. Half-way out of the jungle, the leader had two of his men stay near him as he spoke to them. "Look, if things get bad...if we have to cut our deal with Rat-Ear, I need you two to set this place on fire. Burn everything, pirates and all."

Disgusting. Can't even face him honestly. Once that was established, everyone made it smoothly to the ship and Adrian mounted it like before, smoothly sailing back into Las Camp. Adrian had a terrible idea. It was going to work, but it nonetheless could end quite terribly. Dismounting from the ship once many of the marines exited, he approached the massive group and called out to them. "Hm. Don't like rules I take it?" The leader puffed up his chest, but shivered as soon as he noticed who emerged from the shadows.

"Ah, the one and only Latex Man! And before you go on and on about how that suit's not made of latex, I'd suggest going to sleep after the first hit." This is definitely going to hurt...but that'll make the end result feel that much better. "What do you--" WHOMP!. Adrian was out cold, everything going black. He didn't see where the attack came from, but he definitely let himself succumb as much as possible to the attack. "HA! Nighty-night."

When he awoke, he came face to face with Rat-Ear. He stood menacingly with his club patting his free hand with a steady rhythm. "Aye, mate. I think we have a bit to discuss." Adrian was tied to the chair, which he could feel relatively easily so he didn't struggle unnecessarily. "Yeah, maybe. How about we have a bit of tea, you untie me, and we settle this peacefully!" Adrian spoke with a cheery voice, smiling brightly. He realized he wasn't wearing his disguise anymore and was stripped down to his underclothes.

"Yeah? I'd fancy more of a tussle." Rat-Ear whistled sharply, summoning two marines from the shadows to untie him. He cast his own club aside and removed the pelts he wore to reveal a heavily scarred body. Adrian stood up and stretched out a bit, taking a grappler's stance. "Yeah, I think I'd 'fancy' that too." The room was lit up to reveal numerous marines circled around and beginning to get rowdy. They hyped up the fight, getting Adrian's blood pumping. Everything slowed down for him; his vision demanded only Rat-Ear and it only acknowledged him as the target.

"You gonna make a move or am I just gonna have to wipe the floor with yer skinny arse?" Adrian rolled his head and cracked his knuckles independently and postured up to show confidence. "I was just about to say the same, Rat-Shit." This got Rat-Ear to lunge, which Adrian side-stepped. It was clearly not a real attempt at an attack as the fight had yet to begin. "I just want to ask you all! Before this goes whichever way it does, do you all know you're cowards!?" Boos beamed from all sides as well as profanities spewing from their defecating mouths.

"Really! You lot are all COWARDS! Ants, weak and ready to be squashed and never capable on your own. You all rode your high horse, kept 'em painted gold. But you made one mistake!" Rat-Ear postured up himself, getting in Adrian's face. "Aye? Whas that?" Adrian pushed Rat-Ear and made some distance, taking his official stance. "You crossed me. You saw my face. I'm gonna do more than bring justice. I'm going to kill you." "Judgin' yer fellow marines for their horses! Yet, you wanna commit the greatest of crimes!"

"Not my fault you decided to resist arrest. Come on, Rat-Shit." "BRING IT BOY!"

To start off the fight, Adrian immediately shot like a bolt, closing the distance between him and Rat-Ear. He speared his hand into the pirate's chest, blowing him back [J-Q SILVER SHOT]. A shock-wave burst from the interaction, and Rat-Ear couldn't help but stumble back from the blow. When he recovered he immediately returned the favor by using a feint attack, baiting Adrian into getting struck by a nasty uppercut that immediately combo'd into a weak jab [LT RAT SNAP + UT]. When he attempted a similar attempt, Adrian adapted and simply created space between the two.

Blood ran from Adrian's nose, who had taken quite the blow and needed a moment to recover. Rat-Ear didn't show it as much, but he needed a moment as well. "Aye, ye got a nice set of hands on ye. I'll give you that, little twerp!" Adrian wiped the blood from his nose and immediately came back into the fight, attempting to grapple Rat-Ear but the burly man broke out of it with ease [LT WINTER BURN]. "Oi! Ya scrawny arse tried gripping me up? Let me return the favor!" Rat-Ear attempted his own grapple, except with his horrendously kept teeth [LT RAT SNACK].

Adrian was thankful he could avoid it, reversing the moment with a surprising roundhouse kick [UT]. The kick slammed Rat-Ear in the jaw, which made the crowd get even louder with excitement. Rat-Ear spit out a tooth and rolled his shoulders. "No-no! None of that you nasty fuck." Rat-Ear snarled at Adrian, signalling to the crowd to hype them up. "OI! YA LOT NEVER TOLD ME HE HAD SUCH FIGHT IN HIM!" Adrian softly laughed at Rat-Ear, keeping his eyes trained. "Yeah, that's why I slaughtered their men so easily. Ants."

Rat-Ear looked at Adrian with an ugly smile, showing his rotten teeth. They were black and disgusting and his lips oozed with dirty saliva. It was like the mouth of a komodo. "Y'know, despite our differences...I like that fire. Well, sad we're gonna have to put that out." "We'll see Rot-Tooth."

Rat-Ear lunged at Adrian once more, salivating at the mouth and ready to bite into Adrian LT [RAT SNACK]. Spinning around the pirate, Adrian retaliated with a powerful jab into Rat-Ear's side LT [J-Q BRONZE SHOT]. Rat-Ear stumbled away, taking a moment as he gasped for air. Once he recovered, he spit in Adrian's direction. "AGH! You fuck! Gut-shots, hm? Well if you wanna play dirty, FINE!" Rat-Ear went for a similar feint technique as before, except for this time he double-faked Adrian out and slammed him in the face LT [RAT SNAP]. This sent the blonde tumbling across the ground and into a small group of marines.

They pushed him back into the fight and he stood with a stumble. "Heh, I don't see why you're complainin'. Fuckin' dirty pirate. All you know is a crotch itch and crime!" Rat-Ear charged Adrian, prompting him to do the same. They both slammed each other in the face, knocking each other away and creating some distance [UT] [UT]. "Ya got a nice hook, I'll give you that you little shit!" Adrian spit out a glob of blood and Rat-Ear spit out another tooth. "No compliments from me, Rat-Musk."

The two engaged each other in a bout of harmless flurries, love-tapping each other to bait out a heavier attack. Fists flew with feet only serving the purpose of posture. They both yelled in each other's face, making deep eye-contact. When they both calmed, they both took a moment to regain themselves. "Let's stop the dancin' like lil' princesses, aye?" Adrian spit in Rat-Ear's face, seeing blood and saliva stick between his eyes. "I was just waiting for you to throw a real punch!" "HERE IT COMES!"

Rat-Ear caught Adrian off-guard, closing the distance with a massive lariat LT [RAT SMACK]. Narrowly, he avoided it and gripped up Rat-Ear, giving it his all. "HA! Ya tried that once already! What makes you--" Adrian, bellowing deeply and roaring with great strain, lifted Rat-Ear high into the air. "Heh-AAAAAAAH!" Grunting as hard as he could, Adrian dealt a dangerous pile-driver, smashing Rat-Ear into the ground. Immediately he followed up with a flurry of punches that pinned the pirate down.

"Hnngh! Shit! Sto-- Tha-- Fu--!" "AAAAH!" Adrian let go of himself, his eyes drawing blank as he kept belting out harsh punches that didn't have much posture behind them [UT]. Eventually, Rat-Ear knocked Adrian away and stumbled to his feet, much like Adrian did from the massive punch previously dished out. Rat-Ear again made a deadly move to try and close the distance, going for a quick one-two. The first punch connected against Adrian's side, but was much weaker than the second punch [UT].

Adrenaline pumped through Adrian, the energy pushing him to react and avoid the second attack LT [MACH FIST]. Adrian reset the situation between them, jumping around to keep himself limber and full of momentum. "Never expected someone like me to put up a fight, huh?" By now, Adrian had shown his formidable nature. His bare torso was full of nicks and scrapes and swelling began to form across his face in places where skin was broken.

Rat-Ear was looking equally rough, having multiple cracked ribs and the most sore back a man could have in a fight. Blood and swelling filled his face just like Adrian's. He clearly had the might over Adrian, but that didn't stop the ageless man from fighting on. "Fuck no. I don't care how this goes, you made this interesting and I respect you for that." Adrian smiled with a mocking expression, not accepting the compliment.

"I can't say the same. You think those shots did shit? Come on, Princess." The energy brought out something darker in Adrian. The way he spoke was adaptive, but he genuinely enjoyed the thrill of the fight. He would enjoy it even more if he had Rat-Ear pinned down and squealing. The hype marines around them had become more quiet, becoming genuinely afraid that Adrian could possibly overcome the human Rat. "I don't think I've enjoyed killing someone before as much as I have now."

"I agree."

Adrian knew that if he burned away at his stamina that he wouldn't be lasting much longer. Rat-Ear's hits have already began shackling down his conscious mind, weighing him down through sheer soreness. Regardless, he did his best to remain in proper form and react accordingly to the options the pirate chose. Rat-Ear hardly cared about form and ran off raw instinct, knowing he could muscle through the young-looking blonde's defenses. As they stared each other both down, Rat-Ear began to make the first move.

Another feint, except this time it was done very sloppily and sluggishly LT [RAT SMACK]. Adrian easily avoided it, side-stepping and retaliating with another vicious roundhouse kick [UT]. Knocking the pirate away, Rat-Ear rebutted with a reckless punch that caught Adrian while he was in a momentary daze [UT]. Stunned by this attack, Rat-Ear pressed his advantage with a flurry of shotgun-esque punches LT [FLURRY].

Adrian was blown back quite hard, suffering many tiny blows that felt like stones striking him over and over. The final punch launched him back into the crowd, knocking some of them out. Being pushed back to his feet, the blonde needed a moment to recover. "F-fuck...Is that all you got you soiled, sadly-picked pansy!?" They both spit in each other's direction, Rat-Ear having a beastly composure. "No-where near...When you're down, I'm going to rip into that sweet flesh of yours and add your ears to my necklace." "Don't let me breathe. One gasp of air and I'm going to drive my hand so far up your rib-cage that you're gonna be sittin' pretty as my hand-puppet."

The end was nearing, and it wasn't quite what Adrian wanted it to be. Rat-Ear had the upper-hand and was far from falling and the ageless marine knew he needed to create the best reversal he could. The two went blow-for-blow mostly, but Rat-Ear's blows were much more dramatic and effective. As soon as Adrian let his guard slip from being so worn down, he nearly took a whole flurry LT [FLURRY]. While he narrowly avoided each hit with his rag-doll motions, he couldn't stop himself from avoiding the finisher LT [FlURRY FINISHER].

Rat-Ear watched the marine sloppily avoid his flurry, so he adapted his flurry to consist of less-committal feints. Once he baited Adrian, he slammed his fist as hard as he could into Adrian's chest. Before he launched too far from the pirate's reach, he received a harsh front-kick to the gut to accelerate the launch [UT]. Adrian had a very difficult time getting up off the pile of unconscious marines, holding his chest and gasping for air. It felt like there was a thousand pounds hugging his lungs, keeping him from doing anything far from stumbling when he tried to move.

"Callin' it quits yet?" Adrian couldn't speak; he could only receive several mocking verbal blows. He faded in and out, everything blackening and then lighting up as if it all shifted to the rhythm of his breath. Rat-Ear's voice grew louder and louder with each step, acting the role of a hammer on his head that beat and bashed him. The tempo of sound flurrying his ears bit his drums like rats scurrying over a dead body.

Finally sick of it, Adrian mustered up all of his strength and slammed Rat-Ear in his jaw [UT]. "Sh....shut up..." Rat-Ear looked back at Adrian and laughed as he licked the blood from his split lip. "Ahh...I've already won, Pussy-Foot!" Adrian slumped over, a shadow concealing his eyes as the marines all chanted for Rat-Ear to finish him off. I already know you can't kill me....You might not hear me, but you're going to regret toying with me.

Adrian knew that he only had one move and that it may not be enough, but he'd do his best to make it hurt. Rat-Ear already felt his dominance grasping inevitable victory, so he had virtually no guard. Adrian roared, using the last bit of strength he had to grip up Rat-Ear and power-bomb him into the ground LT [WINTER BURN]. As soon as the grapple ended, Adrian shifted himself and attempted to pummel the pirate before being tossed off [UT]. Adrian didn't have enough steam to keep Rat-Ear properly pinned down.

Immediately retaliating, Rat-Ear went in for a punch filled with all of his might LT [FINISHING COMBO]. Adrian dodged, but his lack of stamina caused him to stumble into a roll. Rat-Ear followed him in the blink of an eye, another shotgun-punch prepared and driving into Adrian's torso LT [FM COMBO]. Adrian bounced off the ground, feeling something crack. Before landing, Rat-Ear scooped up the marine by his throat, keeping him in the air. Rat-Ear closed his hand harder and harder, attempting to crush Adrian's throat [UT].

"This is what victory looks like, kid. Welcome to the real world. I hope you like havin' yer cherry popped because I'm about to squeeze allllll the juice out." Bringing Adrian to his face, he slowly spit on his forehead with much blood. Adrian coughed blood up from the attacks, struggling to breathe. "This is what you would've been looking forward to for your entire career. Resting under the fingernail of every pirate you come across. Trying to slay demons without the proper equipment. Don't worry, that's not even the best part. Now that I've broken you, I can't wait to shatter you. For now, I'll just savor this..."

Rat-Ear released Adrian, snapping his fingers to signal a few marines to drag him away. "Oi, anyone else still standin'...clean up the sleepers and the floor. And you lot draggin' my doll! Glue the pieces. Y'know, patch 'im up. I don't want him to die too quickly when the fun begins." Rat-Ear began moving for the exit once most of the marines cleared out, but realized that he had suffered many precise blows. Every grapple, every physical attack...they were all calculated. "Sonofabitch...knew exactly how to hit me. Pointless, but I have to give him props for trying."

Barely conscious, Adrian smiled as he was put in another room that was almost equally as dirty. They did basic medical procedures and Adrian slipped into darkness for hours.




RAT-EAR WINS THE BATTLE!


RAT-EAR ENDING HP: 86 hp
ADRIAN ENDING HP: 0

Rat-Ear is wounded, next battle he will be set to a +0 Difficulty Boss.

Dark filled Adrian's eyes, his fleshy shutters sealing off the outside. Reality was blocked off as his mind fought for consciousness and did its best to overcome the weight of injury. Adrian was severely injured from the battle, yet Rat-Ear had him patched up so that he could prolong whatever torture session was coming next. A marine duo tended to his wounds and for hours he rested. However, each touch shocked his mind with images that seemingly projected onto his eye-shutters. These images brought painful memories of the bast and how much abuse he dealt with.

Adrian resisted on reflex, giving them a hard time which they hardly cared about. They did their job and left him be. Another marine came to visit Adrian, which he softly awoke to. The marine before him was dressed like a proper medic, which became even more evident when there was actual medicine being applied and the marine brought a pitcher of water for him to drink. Once Adrian was fully awake and hydrated, the marine went on about how long he had before Rat-Ear dragged him away.

"H...he's going to remove you from the room in half an hour. I hope you're well enough by then..." Adrian was angry at first, but gave a rather calm response as he didn't want to strain himself. "Why would you want that? Did I do something..." It was then, as he sat up, that he saw the bruises on the medic's face. The medic was petite and frail, which flashed memories of his own position on Tequila Wolf. "Was it him or the marines?" "Hm? O-oh...no, don't worry. I would focus on yourself if I were you. It's...it's going to hurt."

Adrian stared into the medic's eyes, ice flowing through his retina. "You've watched before. Did you have to listen?" The medic nodded, nearly brought to tears. "Well...this gives a bit of perspective. They aren't just traitors, they're just as grimy as Rat-Ear's necklace." Adrian did minor stretches by flexing parts of his body when the medic looked away. It wasn't going to properly limber him up, but he could at least get the blood flowing.

"I'm going to miss my precious trident...what did they do with it?" The medic began packing up all the unused materials and disposing of the used ones. "Three doors down...they like to keep everything from any 'nosy marines' as trophies. Well...I guess I should leave. They don't like me spending too much time with patients..."

Adrian stood up and took the medic into his arms very gently. At first the medic tensed up, but then he relaxed. "I want you to run. Get help. It's not going to be pretty in here, but I'll make Rat-Ear pay. Just...you didn't see my face. Okay? You didn't see what I looked like and I'll make all of them pay." Compassion. That wasn't something Adrian ever felt. But this person...was in a similar position he was in. A slave. Abused. Likely defiled. He knew it all too well. "The leader...he....he--" "He's dead. All self-defense, of course. I'll wait fifteen minutes. Don't worry."

The medic turned and looked into Adrian's icy eyes. "Thank-you." Adrian ignored the boy and sent him off, returning to his bed. They underestimated him because of his body. Rat-Ear overestimated his blows. Not killing him was a big mistake. Adrian stared at the door ahead of him, waiting until he began hearing voices near. The voices drew closer and closer, and Adrian simply thought on the eternal winter of Tequila Wolf. The guards that loved to toy with him. The family that abused him. The lover that betrayed him.

Everything was coming full circle, and he knew that whoever stepped into his room was dead. Today's a bad day for grunts.

To Set the Mood:
 

The door to Adrian's room exploded, two marines smashing into the wall across from it. The marines nearby yelled for the marines near them, a chain of yelling voices moving along the abandoned building. Bit by bit, more marines closed in on Adrian's location. Adrian walked out of his room, doing proper stretches and limbering up. "See, that's what I was missing when fighting that bastard." Looking at the marines he had apparently knocked out, he scavenged their pistols and knives and moved towards the room that had his belongings.

A flood of marines came forward, the first of which rushed him with a cutlass. Side-stepping it, Adrian spun and shot the marine clean through the cranium. In the same motion, he walked past another marine rushing him. Without even looking at the man, another brain blast spat over the adjacent wall. Tossing the pistols away, he grabbed for the knives while simultaneously avoiding three terrible shots. Walking calmly toward them, he shrugged at the trio once they were in his burst range. "Probably should've just followed command, not an actual human rat."

They were clearly in the weaker percentile, so they were dispatched easily. Still moving down the corridor, a duo actually tried teaming up against him with a bit more of a game plan. Adrian laughed at them as one lunged with a trident and going high while the other threw a set of weights connected by string at his ankles. Adrian hooked onto the trident with his knives while avoiding the weights, letting himself weigh down the pikeman. Kicking the marine in his armpit while also kicking the trident, he launched the polearm into the air and pushed away the marine simultaneously. Flipping back to his feet, he threw a knife into the former pikeman and spun, taking the trident into his hands and impaling the other marine.

Adrian pinned the marine against the wall, pushing as hard as he can to ensure they would have a hard time removing the marine. Walking away from the duo, Adrian realized he's passed two doors by now. Approaching the third door, he heard marines arming themselves inside. Ha, they don't know what's coming. Hearing a sudden, single set of footsteps, he turned his head to find a paralyzed marine. They just stood there, looking at Adrian who by now, was covered in marine blood. "Wrong place, wrong time, mate."

The marines within the room containing Adrian's equipment were discussing their game plan as they expected Adrian to find the place within any moment. They mostly talked about overwhelming him with large weapons and riddling him with bullet holes, which was a rather simple plan. Suddenly, there was a knock on the door that was hard and worried. One of the marines grabbed his cutlass and pistol and approached the door. "Hm? Yes? Is everything al--"

The wall adjacent to the door exploded through sheer force. Shrapnel pecked at the marines within and it deafened the marine at the door. When the dust cleared, a rather mutilated marine laid in the middle of the floor. Nobody knew what to say, but they all looked at the hole in the room. Adrian stood there, wielding a single knife. The one remotely courageous marine there spoke up first. "Oi, there's no way you made it through that many marines." Adrian looked at that marine with cold, dead eyes.

"You wanna come out here and look?" The marine didn't take the bluff, and they all tried rushing him from all sides. Adrian ducked the first attempted attack, sliding behind that marine and gripping him up. In a swift motion, he tossed the marine into two other marines, leaving him with two more to deal with attacking him for the moment. They both attempted to use polearms, prompting Adrian to go between them with a sliding crouch and rising with his knife on the right marine. To the left marine, he brought his knife after sliding it across the right marines' torso, neck and face and stabbed the left marine in the neck.

Ripping it out with a twist, Adrian pushed the bleeding out marine away and hacked into the right marine's neck three times. Turning to the three marines standing up, he picked up a spear and threw it like a javelin. It whirled into the chest of the middle marine in the trio, leaving a right and left marine. Picking up the other spear, the stuffed out their approach with a quick whirl using his body. Stabbing the left marine and lifting him, he baited the right marine to try and punish him. Dropping the left marine, he engaged the right marine in quick hand-to-hand.

Kicking the remaining marine in the knee, he brought him down a peg. Running behind the marine, Adrian grappled him and choked him as hard as he could. Yelling out cathartically, he felt the marine's neck cracking and snapping in place. Taking a moment, he looked at the room of bodies and brushed himself off. He took time to collect before grabbing his trident and arm piece and putting on his disguise. Adjusting his trident's pole to be only a meter, he looked out of the hole in the wall and saw a crowd of marines.

One after another, sometimes in two's or three's, took him on. He used a strategy involving repelling and pecking. Once he wore down most of the grunts, he moved on to manipulating their exhausted bodies to either make each other clash or so he can move around an incoming attack. Futile gunshots filled the air, Adrian worked his way through the marines that seemed endless as he moved upstairs and into wherever Rat-Ear was at. Half of the marines that challenged him fell, prompting the others to regroup.

Approaching the door to Rat-Ear's room, he was sent crashing into the wall with a door exploding against him. Once Adrian brushed off the shrapnel resting on him, he saw a brooding Rat-Ear standing in the broken doorway. "I don't give a shit about these people. They were money, and now they're not." Adrian laughed, standing up and extending his trident to its full length.

"Yeah, and useless to boot. Wasting their time, you did too." Rat-Ear patted his club, taking a step forward. "Hm? How so?" Adrian took a step forward himself, looking up at the monstrous pirate with unwavering confidence. "Well, you did your deeds at a very tightly guarded island. Got lucky with how many marines you got to turn coat. But now I'm going to rest your dirty ass head on my trident here." "I'll crush you here just like I would've before." "You're going to regret not doing that already, you cliche pile of ignorant trash."




THE FIGHT BEGINS! FINAL ROUND! RAT-EAR VERSUS ADRIAN KNIGHT!

As the two stared into each other's eyes, Adrian could tell there was something off about Rat-Ear. His hands very subtly trembled and there was a slight flutter to Rat-Ear's eyelids. Adrian wasn't in the best shape, but he was still nearly fully rested for battle. Adrian took advantage of this, starting the fight off by him smacking Rat-Ear's side with his Trident and pushing, lifting up the pirate and bringing him up. Using Rat-Ear's weight against him, he slammed the pirate down LT [WINTER BURN].

The floor beneath them rumbled and cracked severely, worrying Adrian. Spinning his Trident, he brought it down into the pirate's back, stabbing and removing the pike [UT]. Rat-Ear was in the process of coming to a stand, bursting with speed and slamming Adrian in the chest with a blunt part of his club LT [CLUB SMASH]. Adrian was sent into a messy tumble, nearly going down the stairs.

Rat-Ear appeared in the air, coming down with a heavy fist LT [BOSS BASH]. Adrian rolled out of the way, nearly taking a flailing club to the face in the process but it also barely missed [UT]. Adrian took several steps backwards, Rat-Ear moving forward at the same pace. "Ha, good shot. Got a good grip on that thing." Adrian smiled, swiftly and briefly twirling his trident around his body. "Yeah, they say kings use these. Decided that was quite fitting for me." Rat-Ear laughed heartily, a boom filling the room. "What a claim! A king! More like a pawn, ready to be crushed between my club and my hands and fed to my rats!"

"I'm used to rats, bring your worst, mouse."

As Rat-Ear neared Adrian, the lone marine looked around himself to see the floor was under immense pressure while also being heavily damaged. He knew he could damage Rat-Ear if he could take him through the building. Rat-Ear attempted to catch Adrian off-guard, trying to snack on him with no success LT [RAT SNACK]. Adrian spun around Rat-Ear, pushing him away harmlessly. Breathing heavily, Adrian noticed the position he put Rat-Ear in and kept his momentum going. Spinning with his trident, he jumped into the air and slammed down on Rat-Ear AoET [WINTER BARK].

A massive shockwave spread throughout the room, causing it all to crumble and they both crashed through the floor. Rat-Ear launched downward much faster than Adrian, looking up at the ageless man and throwing a rat at him LT [RAT PACK]. "W-What!? Was that in your pocket this whole time!?" The rat snapped onto Adrian, clawing and biting him. Adrian tossed and turned as he landed, distracted by the vicious, over-sized rat. Rat-Ear sluggishly stood, stumbling over to Adrian and kicking him across the room [UT].

"Lil' Johnny always stays in me pockets. Always ready to bite." Adrian eventually removed the rat, crushing the rat between his hands and flinging away the guts. Rat-Ear was stunned, shocked by Adrian's equally vicious actions. Adrian used his trident to prop himself up, coming to his feet. "They say my shots are like raw Tequila. Dirty and rough." Rat-Ear moved his had forward, confused by Adrian's random claim.

"Huh? Don't make no fuckin' sense!" Adrian spun his head around, taking a basic battle stance. "Shhh, shh....You'll get it soon enough." Adrian flicked his eyes across the room, taking in all the details. It was dark, lit only by the hole in the ceiling. It was a generic, empty room with plenty of grime in the nooks and crannies. Rat-Ear banged his club on the ground, roaring at Adrian. "ENOUGH of this! Just die already!" "Hmmm....Nah."

The two had a brief stand-off where nothing, but eventually engaged in trading weak blows. They just went back and forth, scrapes and grazes adorning their bodies. Rat-Ear handled his club quite handily, as did Adrian with his trident. This exchange of numerous, virtually harmless blows went on for several minutes. Eventually, they both disarmed each other and just went at it hand-to-hand. Adrian was lucky the pirate wasn't at his best, especially since he also wasn't working at one-hundred percent.

Like before, they both yelled at each-other recklessly as they pounded on one-another. Little did they know, the regrouped marines were coming and ready to execute both of them to clean the mess. They stormed near the room during the battle's finale, but weren't quite there yet. As the two barraged each other, Adrian pushed Rat-Ear away and in the same motion, retrieved Pain (his trident). Lifting it up, he looked at Rat-Ear who was now illuminated by the hole in the ceiling. It was a moment of truest clarity as he stared the boar in the eyes.

He saw Rat-Ear as a savage, rabbid animal and he was going to put him down like such. "Huh? You think this is it? You think this is how it ends for me? I know those eyes! BRING ME ALL YOU G--" Adrian shot himself in the middle of Rat-Ear's final words, trident driving into his chest. The trident was specifically aimed for the heart, stabbing clean into it. Adrian didn't speak or yell, he just charged forward with Rat-Ear's body and slammed him into the wall ahead. Adrian put a foot on Rat-Ear's waist and pulled out Pain with a kick. "Fuck you, filthy rodent."



RAT-EAR IS SLAIN! THE BATTLE IS OVER! ADRIAN WINS!



Suddenly, the room flooded with Marines brandishing swords and pistols and rifles (oh my!). Adrian came out of the shadows with Rat-Ear's head, stabbing the bottom part of Pain into the ground and mounting Rat-Ear's Head on the trident pike. The room went silent, looking at the frail-looking boy as he tore off his arm piece. Adrian did a single rotation, looking at the crowd that closed into a circle.

"So, who wants to start it off?"

The first round of marines attacking him approached with flailing blades, which let Adrian exploit their weak form to riposte and parry repeatedly. Blood flung along the ground as Adrian took the fallen marines and used their swords and pistols to slay any marine that attacked. This went on for quite a while, traitor after traitor falling to Adrian's justice. As the herd thinned, the fire in Adrian's eyes grew. The burning sense of justice brewed within his gut as he put down the traitors that jeopardized the safety of all the civilians on Las Camp and the integrity of the marines that did their job.

After it was all done, the room was drenched on every inch with blood, flesh, sweat and bone. Adrian himself sat down in the epicenter of where the fight took place, his disguise drenched and removed from his body. At this point, he didn't care who saw him out of his disguise. They'd likely be surprised by his handiwork, but it was necessary in his mind. He sat there, alone for a good half hour before standing up and attempting to find the exit. He didn't really truly try, exploring the abandoned building in isolation and even revisiting the corridor of bodies he left behind.

When he did come to the exit, he entered a world of bright and sunny light. He smiled and took in the cleaner air. Looking forward, his smile faded away as the fire of relief was snuffed out by the sight of the poor medic laying on the ground with a slight pool of blood around his head several meters away. "Nothing...ever changes." Adrian figured the medic wasn't supposed to leave and they got suspicious of them. Adrian realized he was in an abandoned building that was well away from the main part of Las Camp, somewhere on the edge.

He doubted anyone heard the yelling through the thick walls, despite the building definitely experiencing decay. Walking forward with trident and disguise in hand and his arm piece equipped, he just made way for the nearest commanding officer. Somehow he avoided all of the day patrols while he walked back to the marine Headquarters. He hid his belongings temporarily and played the role of civilian, abruptly being stopped by a patrol once he neared the entrance. "Hey! Kid...uh, fuck. Kid!" "Y-yeah? O-officer! I need help..." "Yes! Of course, what happened?" "R....Rat..." Adrian figured they would know who Rat-Ear was based on how he was wanted.

Baiting them with his innocent boy act, they all became alarmed. They took Adrian into the headquarters where he may or may not be identified by a much higher ranking marine but he could still play the fragile victim. Thank god it's over...I'm starving.

PostSubject: Re: Episode 1: The First Ladder   Today at 12:42 am

”Hmm? what do you want?”


Ryuji and his 45th had gotten in a rough naval battle recently in the Blues, the 45th Fleet versus a certain pirate alliance that built up, but he managed to successfully annihilate them, however due to Ryuji's cockiness he thought in his full-form, he was invincible and took a cannonball straight on, you can only imagine how that turned out. He has been hit with harder stuff before, so he wasn't exactly in a life-threatening stage but a couple of bones were damaged, and it was recommended that he recovered at the nearest, safe marine base until he could fight again. He still did his part for the base however, and had to fill out some paperwork for Las Camp. He was currently at his given desk, going through several papers, sighing several times as it dragged on. "Oh, the tortures of paperwork... sheesh." one of the marines rushed up to his desk, saluting, he said "Sir-" he was blocked off as soon as Ryuji stood up, saying "A situation? lead the way." he wanted any excuse to just get out of paperwork.

He started to follow the marine down the stairs to find several men surrounding something, a circle formed of marines. Ryuji said "Alright, stand back... let's see what the fuss is about." he then saw what appears to be a kid, completely covered in blood and in his trousers. He then said "A kid is covered in blood and none of you have the common courtesy to get a blanket?" they started to look at each other, until a marine ran off, assuming that he's getting the blanket. "Good... while he's getting the blanket, can someone explain how is he drenched in blood like that?" one of the marines nodded, saying "My group were out in patrol and we found him like this, he muttered the word "Rat"..." Ryuji scratched his head, saying "So... he was attacked by rats?" the marine shaked his head, saying "No sir... we believe it's Rat-Ear." Ryuji looked even more confused, an officer had to step up and explain "Ryuji... we told you this three hours ago, the criminal on Las Camp? Rat-Ear?" it then clicked to him, saying "Ohh... that... I thought you were joking, I thought the name Rat-Ear was just made up." the officer shaked his head in disappointment. 

The marine finally ran back, carrying a clean, soft blanket which he starts to wrap around the kid, Ryuji then called off the marines that were watching. "Alright... back to work the lot of you, you don't get paid to stare. I'll see what the kid has to say." Ryuji beckoned for the kid to follow him, grabbing two chairs from two separate desks, setting one up nicely for the kid and one for himself, Ryuji already sitting down on his chair. "I'm Rear-Admiral Ryuji, from what I've learned so far, I'm assuming you have information regarding the criminal Rat-Ear?" he'd cut down on the attitude and started to take this more seriously.

Adrian was surrounded by marines gawking at him, eyes speaking paragraphs on how they likely thought he was an ant that avoided the boot that was Rat-Ear. Little did they know he gave Rat-Ear a proper end and killed all of the traitorous marines endangering their lives. Meanwhile, Rat-Ear's crew was still at large but lacked the muscle Rat-Ear had. They would be dealt with another day, as they likely were long gone. Adrian was eventually met by a higher ranked Marine. In fact, it was Ryuji himself. A Rear Admiral was in his presence and did a good job getting to the point and not stumbling over worries and pity.

Everyone of the marines around him looked at him with pity but had no actions behind their sympathy. They didn't know or understand what was really tugging at Adrian's heart, as it was a detail nobody could see that didn't know he was from Tequila Wolf. When Ryuji got him a blanket, he embraced it happily. It was cold in the room, likely because the marines were too whiny about the heat. Ryuji asked him what happened, prompting Adrian to look at him with sad puppy-dog eyes.

"I...I've been held captive by marines for weeks. They were planning on auctioning me off to R...Rat-Ear. I spent the past day trying to escape after he...he--" Adrian's lips quivered as he cried, covering his bloody face with the blanket. He took a minute to bring himself to continue telling them what happened, but also did his best to imply Rat-Ear violated him. "It was awful. I...did my best to survive...I hope I'm not in trouble. They beat me...they did terrible things." Adrian paused, clenching his eyes shut and breathing heavily.

Using the memories of his past to imitate that feeling of painful recollection and the effect it has on his outside expression, he reinforced the act he was putting on. "There were so many. I'm not as weak as I seem but I didn't want to fight my way out." Adrian sighed, tightening his grip on the blanket. "But I did. They were planning awful things and even forced a medic to help them when they beat me. I wasn't the first one, and they weren't just trying to auction me off. As I fought my way out, I found a room full of boxes." A detail that was true but was left out when he explored the building in isolation, Adrian tried to remain as calm as possible but showed lots of resistance to his emotions on the outside.

"Can I...? I just want to get this...stuff off of me." Adrian didn't mention how he killed Rat-Ear, but he wanted to leave them in momentary suspense. "I killed him. That's my information...I-I killed Rat-Ear!" He burst into tears, unable to continue spitting information.

”Hmm? what do you want?”


Ryuji paid attention to the kid's story of his experience with Rat-Ear, showing patience when he started to cry and forcefully pushing out as much information as he can muster, until the last part raised an eyebrow on Ryuji... while this kid was showing pure emotion about his experiences with Rat-Ear, sure... but something felt off with Ryuji but he couldn't put his finger on it. An officer then asked the kid "Do you know where the building is? with the boxes?" Ryuji put a hand to the officer, signaling him to shut up, he looked his way and said "Sent some men to try and find that building, I think we've gotten all we can out of the kid." looking back to the kid, Ryuji certainly didn't picture this to happen today, he wasn't exactly great with kids.

Ryuji decided to be straightforward with him, saying "Look... you're not in trouble for killing Rat-Ear, he was a wanted criminal and you only did what you had to do, we'll take care of the rest, feel free to take more time sitting here, thinking about what happened... otherwise, ask any marine in this base to help you get food, supplies, a bed, whatever. You did good." With that, Ryuji stood up from the chair, going to his officer he ordered earlier to see who he was sending, Ryuji was asked if he wanted to come along but he couldn't, since the doctors said Ryuji was still "recovering" he didn't believe the doctor's advice, but he couldn't go regardless. He watched a fair numbered amount of men going out of the base to try and find a building with boxes.
