The Umbrella Colony

Post by Zenyatta on 2nd November 2013, 7:43 pm

Commander Mytrell, the Umbrella's head lead and a dark-skinned Turian with red markings on his face, is staring out at the planet before them, hands behind his back as he watches the terraforming process continue.  His eyes watch with an intensity over the pilot's head, whom many know as Jacquelyn.  She's quite well skilled and also bored--and who wouldn't be?  Still, everything is so quite here on the Command deck compared to elsewhere, as each member of Umbrella becomes more and more excited as the time passed.  They will be on land soon--instead of on this ship, where they have resided their whole life.  Of course, that will be after the scout parties, terraform analysis, and other such processes...Mytrell hopes his crew has patience on this morning.

Silla finds her way by his side, seemingly appearing out of nowhere.  He's not surprised by it, anymore, for sure, but it can be quite alarming to those that aren't used to her presence.  She is an agile Asari, both timid and agile, quiet and mysterious.  She smiles at him with greeting and speaks softly.  "Your orders, Commander?"

"Send the saints to the three moons of this planet.  I'll have them searched for anything useful and scouted--can't be too sure what we are living near around here.  We barely have information on the solar system."  Mytrell replies.

"Understood, Commander."  Silla says, "Anything else?"

"I want some scout teams prepared, along with some scientists to be readied for the first ground team within the next eighteen hours.  I want the top scientists out there--we need information on this planet as soon as possible--oh...and I'd like some Dragari tea, please.  Turian style."  

"Of course, Commander.  I shall return shortly."  Silla nods her head with closure and a quick salute before leaving the Command deck...life aboard the Umbrella is about to get busy, especially for her...so many commands and plans she'll have to help issue.  So many things to organize.

[Attn: Military Storage Room UMC-235742, EDI, Open]

Umbrella Colony is busy with it's arrivial to a brand new planet, many things throttled into high gear. Down here in the Combat Droid hanger all signs are exactly the opposite. The lights are off, the life support is toned down to minimal levels and the place is silent like the grave.

Crate after crate, storage unit after storage unit is locked up. Dust covers many of the doors, it only further adds to the sense of emptiness of lifelessness in this almost neglected section of the ship.

There is one anomaly, one thing that ruins this place from being an abandoned and seemly forgotten corridor of the ship. A small light begins to pulses in the darkness, it's light flickering on and off like a heart beat.

blink

blink

Blink
Blink
Blink, Blink


--------------------------------------------------------

Inside the storage locker of the blinking receiver, locked in place stands a shadow covered combat droid, like a old skeleton in a closet.

It's systems shut down, hibernating, waiting for it's next moment when the Organics would breathe life back into it. Almost all It's systems are shut down, as it waits for that call. The lone light outside stops it's blinking and remains lit.

The metallic bulky skeleton's systems pick up the signal, now confirmed. One system, speaks to another, to the next, the electrical signals starting to fan out like ice crystallizing under a microscope as they switch on.

---------------------------------------------------------

Inside the giant tin man, his big blue heart, his core had been slumbering. Then a simple on-off signal had started to ring like a little alarm clock, only it's clarion call wouldn't trigger an angry swat to silence it. That call electrified Kydoimos, literally. It spoke to his entire being, calling him to action.

Even as he waited for all his systems to finish, countless signals raced through him that he paid mind to like the voices of thousands of miniscule angels. Each voice confirming his systems coming on line, they were going through a slow boot up. His visual receptors engaged and immediately switched into night-vision and he saw his locker and the frame of his maintenance rig over his shoulders.

All systems confirmed operation status, and the arms of his rig released him. His communication systems engaged and immediately started to update his clock, and the crew manifests. The locker hissed as it released it's seal and opened. Dust spread like mist as it was disturbed and outlined Kydoimos as he stepped through into the corridor, like something out of a horror movie.

"EDI." Kydoimos voice emitted both out loud and through his limited communication systems wirelessly as it searched for it's mission.
..
...
"A Planet. They found one." He wasn't shocked or surprised, his systems simply registered the new fact. It was reality. His systems queried how long the voyage had taken...

1972 Galactic Years, 31 days. Kydoimos ignored the hours and smaller time place holders, not all information was important, it had been long enough. It was longer than any single Asari or Krogen lifespan, longer than over a hundred humans, and countless hundreds of the lives of the short lived Drell.

Aside from the hopes and dreams of the original mission, few remained who would remember the day it all began. Even as a machine, a synthetic, Kydoimos felt old.

Old like a shipwrecked sailor who finally made it home from being stranded at sea for years, out came a robotic voice, soft and almost reverent. "Finally."

Her pen tickled the paper as it quickly brushed across it, not missing a detail of her hope. Craisa hoped for so much from the planet now drawing near. She held her excitement in tight, afraid of disappointment.

The intricate pattern was beautiful. Crescents rotated along the middle of the page, and multipled exponentially spreading throughout.

This is what she thought, rather hoped, that the sky above her might look. She imagined herself gazing up at it mystified. It was so vast and dark, she'd somehow been travelling in it for her whole life. She swallowed, and so had others who are now dead.

Her path was always clear to her. All she needed to do was remain alive as long as she could, she never expected more. She allowed herself a twinge of excitement, she smiled uncharacteristically. This was her chance to carry out a legacy more important than anything she could barter. And, "Have a little fun," she mouthed as her eyes narrowed.

[Attn: Open]

They say that you don't dream in stasis sleep.  They tell you that it's nothing but an empty void.  That you're practically brain dead the entire time.  Bull.  But in the case of Jasmine Palmer, it was likely necessary.  She hated dreaming.  Her dreams were never pleasant.  Waking up was not an instantaneous process.  That would likely kill anyone put under.  During the time between the stasis function being shut off and her awakening, Jasmine's mind was haunted by violent images.  Normally she'd hesitate to call her dreams nightmares...but this wouldn't be one of those times.  She saw flashes of red and fire.  There were silhouettes of enormous...THINGS and gunfire sounded.  She saw her parents fighting.  They'd never fought a day in their lives, but she could see them clearly here, drawing up arms against enormous metal beasts.  The nightmare doesn't end after this.  It simply takes a turn from the abstract to something much more real...the death of her parents, the slaver raid, Omega, Purgatory...and then it all stops suddenly, consumed by black.

That black was the back of her eyelids.  Her eyes suddenly fly open and she breathes heavily before throwing herself from the stasis cell, landing on her hands and knees and coughing to let her lung catch up to the rest of her.  There is a sound.  It was the familiar clip clip of footsteps.  Maintenance perhaps, or someone sent to check on her.  Unfortunately for him, she didn't sleep very well.  The second he gets near, she attacks him, pinning the Turian to the wall with her forearm against his throat.  "Whoa, WHOA!  Easy, lady!  Calm down!"

Jasmine stares at him and her eyes wander, desperately trying to connect the images she's seeing all around her.  "This place..."

"It's the Umbrella Station Stasis Chamber.  You just woke-"

"I know," Jasmine says at last, letting him up.  "Jasmine Palmer, AKA 'Jazz', Spectre candidate, Umbrella Colony Assignme-". She pauses and something registers to her.  Suddenly she turns back to the Turian.  "Take me to him."

"What?"

"The spectre who was tasked with watching over this assignment.  The old Krogan.  There are only two criteria for my being woken up unless it was a fluke.  Either we've set up the colony ahead of schedule, he's dead, or both.  If either of the latter options are the case, I...I just...I need to see him, his grave, whatever," she says.

The Turian looks Jasmine over. "You're supposed to be reporting to the council first. They're going to want a word with you regarding your status."

[ATTN:  Open]

The Asari Matriarch leaves Kaed's office with swift steps, her eyes darting about nervously as if she does not wish to be seen there.   She has just recalled some memories of her lost parent, things that shocked her...things that she did not recognize from the being she once knew.  The Asari was quite disturbed and Kaed was reluctant to give her the information she had requested--however, she was listed on the client's permissions upon their death, so it was inevitable.  

Another Asari comes in, wearing clothing that is quite more revealing and decorative, demonstrating a much younger age by not only her clothes, but by how she walks into the room with a burst of excitement and lack of grace.  She waves at Kaed.

"Hello, father.  That was your last appointment for this morning."  She says softly, "Can we go look at the planet, now?  I bet they are already crowded around the west windows, though..."

"Patience, Imadorie."  Kaed says with a rough voice, standing up from the table with a slight stretch.  "There is no need to rush.  We will not step onto that land for some time, I am sure.   There remains plenty of time to gaze upon its surface with longing and self-torture."

"I knooowww."  Imadorie says with a whine and a pout, "...but pleaassee?"

"Very well,"  Kaed says, giving in, "We shall go to the North windows on this floor.  Within the hour, I am sure that will be the side where we shall find the less crowded areas to view the planet...don't be disappointed when you see how boring it is."

Imadorie grabs her father's hand with glee, ready to practically drag him out of the room that he has rented for his work.  He can barely keep up with the girl, shaking his head with wonder at how tiny she really is.   She is one of his oldest--she's 35 years old and barely acts like a human teenager.  It amazes him at how different the aging can be between the different species on this station.



[ATTN:  Kydoimos]

A small access panel lights up as a blue-sphered hologram appears above its surface, EDI's voice greeting the robot without hesitation upon the uttering of her name.  "Good morning, Kydoimos.  I have sent you the date, as well as the current status of the Umbrella Colony and its current crew.  Feel free to inquire of any information that seems unclear."

With this, she lets the robot load with the new information before continuing with a small statement.  "Finally is an accurate assessment of this situation, I must say that I agree.  We will be sending out a survey and reconnaissance team and you will be on it, which is a file that you should also have access to at this time."



[ATTN:  Craisa]

"Craisa!"  A voice calls out with irritation as a blue, transparent screen appears in the air just above Craisa's desk, a few inches from  her face.  A familiar face gazes upon her within its frame, the annoyed of countenance of the Salvage Saints schedule manager looking directly at her, a fast speaking Salarian.  "Just what are you doing?  You're scheduled for work within the next twenty minutes!  I'm sick and tired of having to track you down to get you to show up on time!  If this keeps up, I'll have to dock your pay again--which would be what?  The twelfth time?!  Really? I've contacted you.  To be nice.  I have work to return to."

With a soft beep, the blue box closes, disappearing from the air before her.  Due to the red icon in the top right corner of the screen, it is obvious that this was a pre-recorded message, rather than a live one.  Whatever the manager is doing now, he's most certainly not paying attention to Craisa.  His name is Silvis and he is someone that has little patience and little effort towards manners, especially if Craisa is involved.

Sonali goes to the infirmary for her shift.  Luckily it is slower today.  The word around is that they are finally arriving their destination.  Some of the others are so excited about this, but Sonali approaches the situation like all other with reserved calm.  She knows her duties will really take off after they landed and the rest wake up.  The other races will be running around to get everything set up.  They will make mistakes, and the hospital will be there.  

Sonali looks at her tablet for the list of supplies.  Sometimes she wonders is she isn't too calm about situations.  A nurse approaches.  “Aren't you excited about getting off this ship?  I cannot wait to feel real ground again.”

Sonali smiles.  “Yes it will be nice to be around organic structures again.  To feel real sun on our skin.  It is going to be busy at first, but it will settle down soon enough.”

His prey lay in sight. He stalked her quietly, ever so quietly. Okay, let's be real here, the noises of the promenade gave perfect camouflage; he could've just about tap-danced over ther. Anyway...

He made motions toward her, never losing sight of her, slipping between people with casual ease. He watched, waited, now was the time to strike. He slipped in and closed the distance between them and--

"What have I told you about just standing there like a creepy douchebag, Ish?"

His shoulders slumped. She'd spotted him. "How'd...?"

She pointed to the glasses at the tables all around them and the napkin trays and gave him a pointed look. Damn it, who the hell had taught her countersurveillane techn--oh yeah. He had.

"Fine morning to you, Shasta," he said cheerfully.

She gave him a pitying smile as strands of her hair slipped in front of her crystal green eyes, reflecting the light around them. Shasta Morrison. Civilian. She stood at 5'5, but could give the impression of being much taller if you got on her bad side--though that only seemed to happen to him. Her sandy hair was chin length and fine and always smelled of apple blossoms.

"Morning?" she said. "Have you been tinkering again? It's early afternoon!"

His face fell and he pulled up the time from his omni-tool. Well, damn. She chuckled.

"That would be a yes," she said, covering her mouth with a hand. "So, what brings me the 'honor' of your visit."

"Nothing," he said cheerfully. "Was just passing through, thought you looked far too unshaken--thought I'd help."

She gave him one of those annoyed, amused looks of hers. "How sweet of you. I'm feeling generous today."

She walked over to the bar and came back with a bundle, upon which she shoved it into his stomach, making him grunt and double over slightly. "I figured you might show up having not eaten." She thumped him between the eyes. "Now get outta here, I've got work to do." She patted him kindly on the cheek.

She turned and strode away, and after a moment, he turned and did the same. He rounded a corner, stopped and leaned against it, hugging the bundle to him like it was precious cargo. Happiness swelled in him; she'd not only thought of him, but she'd made him lunch!

He waited there for ten minutes, looked back around the corner. She was busy and there was a crowd. Perfect. He sped over there with unexpected speed to the bar, quickly dropping a device on it and speeding away undetected.

He rounded another corner and looked back. It took a few minutes, but she came back to the bar and noticed it. She looked at it bemusedly, looked around, then picked it up, then flinched and jumped back as it suddenly sprang alive. A 3-D holographic image sprang up of tulips--her favorite flower--followed by a rendition of Moonlight Sonata. She looked around again, a touched smile on her face. Ishmael beamed and walked away, his good deed for the day had been done.

Re: The Umbrella Colony

Post by JosephJoestar on 4th November 2013, 9:06 pm

The evening before the big day.

As words spread out that the colony was getting closer and closer from its ultimate goal, excitation was in the air among all citizens of Umbrella. That excitation also took over the various artist that were within the colony, Alehina herself as well. Many celebrations and concerts were organized around the city before the start of the operations of Terra Formation. Even some main workers for the operations were watching the events from afar, would it be the military in the middle tower or the salvage stations on both sides of the ring where the city was and the events were happening. As all eyes were about to be set on her performance, Alehina was walking backstage of the Extravaganza Guild Stadium(EGS) which was full tonight with even some people watching from outside on live screens.

''...Please remember to be careful when we launch you up Lady Alehina. '' An assistant mentioned after going through on security procedures again.

''Yes do not worry, I got this. '' Alehina said with a wink at the man.

''Still these maneuver are a bit more complicated then what you did before, so be sure to be careful. '' Darian, one of her bodyguard mentioned with a smile.

''Yes your safety is our most important goal. '' Kamila added with a tone that showed a lot of authority. She was her second assigned bodyguard and was much more strict then Darian.

Spoiler:

Both of them were wearing suits and had quite the awesome look. Even though these awesome look didn't mean they were easy to approach especially not in duty.

''Honestly, you two are being too worried. '' Alehina replied with a sigh.

''Everything is ready ! ''

People were running backstage for the final preparation as Alehina stepped into the small craft that would be launched in the air. While alone with her craft she started to speak to the engine as if it was a human being. ''Honestly they all think you're gonna crash or something, what is their problem ? Insulting one of the cutest engine there is. Hmph. But don't worry, because I believe in you. ''

''Get ready, launch in 1 minute !'' One of the assistant said as he was double checking everything.

Alehina smiled and adjusted her microphone before grabbing the handles of the small craft. Her smile became a grin as the flood of adrenaline went up in her body. ''I can't wait to launch !'' She expressed in excitation of what was coming.

***

The public were calling out for her name as the stage remained quite dark with only the logo of the singer appearing along with some lights going around. The setting of the stage was more than just a conventional stage as there was more than one level. There was the low level and a second level for the main stage, stairs connected the two on the sides in a shape of crescent moon. The decorations of the structures had a lot of spirals forms to create a spooky ambiance.

http://grooveshark.com/s/Dead+END/4qLMx8?src=5

Electric beats could finally be heard after a long wait and the public started to scream and react immediately. As the guitar started in hardcore rhythm, the singer's craft was launched into the air and gripped onto rails that had been installed on the roof's structure. As her craft did a circle around it, blue light fell from behind her ship in little twinkle and the hologram program of the roof light up to show a dark night with clouds and stars. Finally landing a platform a bit over the second level when the second beat came over with the guitar, she quickly get off and the lights of the stage come in dark setting as she step forward. Her body shining before the clothes would change in appearance from the eyes of all into a dark dress with red. This dress however was pretty tight with a corset and the skirt part of it gave a bit more of freedom and would end a bit before the knee. And there she started singing ;


The girl with the sharp thorn in her flesh[b] Another girl appeared which seem to be an holographic double of herself with red hairs and a different dress that had a look of a peasant from fields, except that the dress was torn apart in some places and really dirty. This one was holding herself as if she was in pain.
[b]I meet you at your story
Alehina tend her hand in a helping manner toward this other self that simply runs and falls to the other stage which setting change the moment she land into a dark land.
Behind the hatred there lies a murderous love As the girl turn, dark silhouettes appear and falls at the mention of murderous love only to be turned into gravestones.

Do you kill your friends, if you can fulfill your wish? Alehina started dancing from where she was and on the first level, one shadow silhouettes got closer to the girl lip-syncing the first part of the line and as the girl turn, another one appear to face her to lip-sync the other part.
Can you die for someone? At these lyrics, Alehina drops on the floor and the girl downstairs falls as well as if it had created a shock.
They are synonymous words Alehina get back up, spins and point in front. A path is formed at this moment toward the public and the hologram version of her follows it to flee from the shadows.

Life is a game It's a survival That's right! How do you start? Alehina dances again, the setting of the stage slowly changing into clocks and stars in the background as the girl that was far above in the middle of the stadium tried to get away from the shadows.
Time and Space It' s a crossroad through a gate! Where do you go? The girl falls from the path and into a door that closes behind her, disappearing from her previous location and the shadows disappearing into sparkles of light.

You seek eternal breath The girl fall next to Alehina from a gate of light and Alehina approach her grabbing her chin as she sing this next line and the other one show a puzzled expression.
Why do you need to live? Still holding the girl's chin, she sing the other line as the girl try to avoid contact.
We don't know when this world came into being An image of a world was behind them and the stage setting start changing a bit once more, keeping clocks mechanism around them, but the uper platform where they were standing opened and they fell slowly almost looking like they were floating.
[color#993366]We are the timeleaper[/color] At this line something that looked like an hourglass shaped around them as Alehina was holding the hand of the other girl.

Nothing's gonna change with you in the world Alehina circle around in the hourglass with the girl as the hologram of the planet behind them circle with them for both this one and the next line.
Everything will be decided by the rules
Oh, We are traveling the past and the future through love Alehina get closer to her and wave her hand toward the public, but looking at the sky as it clear out.

Break out! The hourglass break,but they fall slowly.
Let's dial back all the pains and we will be born again Alehina takes the hand of the lady and guide her to the flying craft that had been moved from underneath to the front of the first floor of the stage and she get into it, the lady sitting on the top of it.
I wanna see the stars with you The craft launch toward a platform that is forming over everyone's head as the roof show the stars of endless galaxy and other craft join the platform flying.
Over the miracle Alehina point out the 'sky' as light is brought upon her and the lady.
It's not a Dead END The lady's dress become somewhat more lively and repaired and she smile before disappearing. Background dancers arrive from the small crafts and start dancing with her at the beat of the guitar when she finish her line.

The boy with the loneliness in his side The stage setting is once again changed and the lightning becomes a bit darker again aside from lights setting their eyes on the platform which started moving. The stage is barely apparent this time however as a giant hologram is launched, it is a young man showing his back and looking a bit on the side. Alehina was still dancing with the background dancer on the platform as well.
wanna control your soul Alehina does a move as if she would take grasp of something in front of her and the same lady as before appear beside the man to turn him to face the public. This one had a medium length of dirty blonde hairs and seemed quite surprised, angry even toward the lady.
Behind the hatred there lies a plundering love The lady smile and and turn the man's face to face her.

The Future has been over The image of the hologram of both figure stops there and gets much smaller to be on top of the stage which setting seemed to be a mix of future and past structures.
But we are fixating on that The couple is frozen into a golden coin that looks too be like a clock that stopped with their picture behind it. The platform is almost done with its turn and the stage open a bit to give some space to it as it descend.
The past is still to come Two clocks appear next to the one with the couple's coin.
Yes! They are in the same time With a move of her arms clockwise she ends up pointing in the air and the clocks fuse together to do an effect as if it was warped, the particles of lights descending from the effect comes toward Alehina as her costume change once again, the dress design staying closely the same except that now it is mostly red as if the lady had came to her.

Death is a frame It's a spiral That's all How do you think? Holographic screens showed image of the story of both of the couple from various time starting here and Alehina continued to sing walking around the stage as her dancers occupied areas that needed people.
God and Evil It's a scapegoat through the heart What do you know?
"What's at the back of your mind? I can't hold your hand"
You say "Where are you going to take me? I can't believe" [i] Alehina place a hand on one of her dancers shoulder before pushing him away and walking further.
[i]We walk the parallel line


Nothing's gonna change my deep love for you Herself and most of her dancer join together to dance once again as a group as lights are flashing around the entire stage.
Everything will be going right for me
Oh, we are wandering in light and darkness through eyes Lights are wandering the stage and some lights goes missing.

Break down! Let's revamp all the truth and we will create a fact At the word break down, her and her dancer all drop and they slowly come back up in a circle with her being higher.
I wanna feel the reality with the agony of doubt She is fully standing and as her hands go down, her dancers slowly go down with the beat.

I love U Cuz U are always by my side... All lights but one are remaining at this point, one that is showing her standing and passing her hands in front of her toward the public in a way of saying you all. And as she mention always by her side, she placed the same head closed in front of her heart. Her voice sounded more robotic in that part, but it was all part of her enhancement that gave her opportunity to use tricks whenever she wanted.

Dead or Alive Dead or Alive At the first she use the same hand to punch on her right and then toward the left which is behind her where controlled chained explosion of little twinkle line. She turn to punch to the left and then leave the hand opened as if she tossed something on the right and the same thing happens.

Back to you... At the piano notes she advance forward and points forward before turning back as the beat take back in and her dancers revive and lights come back to follow the beat as well.

Can't you read? Can't you see? At each shout in the back, there would be another explosion and on this moment she would act as if communicating with one of the dancer before dismissing him as he go in the back.
My words in your virtual vision
Save my life! Save your life! Going back and forth between her dancers, she seem overly confused, but it is all acting.
Why do you come here? I'm such a liar She hold herself as if in pain.
Bad choice! Bad sign! [i] She start collapsing by level as her dancers come closer around her like they were the weight holding her down.
[i]It is a prologue of collapse
Collapsing on her knee, she start looking up.
I don't stop your desire, cuz I can't forget you Her look goes back down to the floor as she shake her head.

Nothing's gonna change with you in the world The world appears again in the background as the girl from before looked as if she was trapped inside with the man.
Everything will be decided by the rules They both seem to disagree and look at each other.
Oh, We are traveling the past and the future through love Ticking clocks appear all around the room and it lights up more as Alehina start to rise a little bit.

Break out! Alehina rise up one shot, the dancers that were the weight being 'thrown' in the air as they really just did acrobatic maneuver to make it look like they were doing that. At the same time the couple break out of the world and start flying forward as also explosions of twinkle are done again more in the front.
Let's dial back all the pains and we will be born again The couple separate to come back together as Alehina dance some more with her dancers.
I wanna see the stars with you Her right hand goes forward as she mention 'I wanna see' and her left show the public as she mention 'with you', stars looking as if they were falling from the roof like shooting stars.
Over the miracle Pointing up, the couple transform into a big light.

It's not a Dead END She walks back, her dancers clearing the path as she pass by. Lights of the stars all gathering in the middle of the stadium at a good height. She finally spins with the dancers falling in chain as her arm pass by and finally stops to her left, with her head inclined to the right as well as her legs, her dress being back to the first one, this time with the logo that also appears at the same time in the middle of the room with a last explosion on stage. It was the logo of her album with colors of her main guild.

The public had a very loud reaction to the explosive end of this song as the night was only starting. The end of it came quicker then she thought it would take to get there however and it was eventually the time to say goodbye to that precious public of hers.

***

The morning of the big day.


Light came into her rich condo and she turns in her bed, being bothered by the light on the side which she was sleeping. Her bodyguard Kamila was the one who had opened the curtain. ''Young lady it is time to wake up, you have a long day ahead of you.''

''Mmmm....'' Alehina was moaning as she didn't quite want to get up yet. The concert had been quite demanding yesterday.

Kamila removed the blankets saying ''You have 30 seconds to get up M'lady.''

Alehina opened her eyes slightly and looked toward the woman with some annoyed look. ''Fine I'm getting up....'' The poor girl was still half awake and got up from her bed and started to prepare the clothes she would wear. ''May I have some privacy ? ''

Kamila nods and says ''Very well, I shall wait for you outside.''

Alehina start getting ready, but she also slip a different T-shirt and a long brown wig into her bag along with sunglasses. She smiled thinking of how she would plan her great escape this time, but first she needed to eat and so she went out of her room to take a chocolate bar. ''That should do !''

''Surely you're not planning to eat breakfast on that only... Please sit down, I'll prepare something for you. '' Darian said sweetly as he checked what was available in the fridge.

''I'm doing what I want and if I want to eat chocolate I will ! ~'' With a small giggle she eat it.

''It's not good for you however.'' Darian said looking worried.


''It's not good for me he saaays ~ '' She sang in a playful tone.

Are you mimicking me ?


''I dunnoooo~ Maybe I aaaaaaAaaamm.

Kamila step in front of her and place her hands on the table. ''You are still gonna eat that meal he will make for you.'' Her posture was really imposing and showing great authority.
Alehina ignored her and move her attention back to Darian.


Whenever you're ready~ I shall eat this meal of youuurs~She sings, taking another bite on her chocolate bar.

Shaking his head he turns back to the fridge with a small smile. ''As you wish M'Lady.'' He knew she wasn't the kind to be easy intimidated, nor to convince at anything, but if she agreed to the meal it was enough.

When the breakfast was finally done with they moved down as she mention she had to go meet with someone and asked them to ready the car. But that was only part of her marvelous trick. She had asked one of her good friend to come with the same set of pants and Alehina would give the lady her shirt and put the one hidden in her bag to her.

''Thanks a lot Missa. I love you !'' Alehina said with a wink.

''Eheh, no probs !'' Missa had the same haircut as the singer and was sometimes used as a pawn. Alehina would often make so her bodyguards are busy elsewhere too.

Putting the brown wig on and the glasses after, Alehina slip away before Missa finally get out and go meet with her bodyguards that were right down the corner, knowing they would leave from the front, Alehina, took a stroll to the underground parking where she had a parking of her own with quite a few engines of her collection to pilot... ''Well... which of you will have the honor of being piloted by me ? '' She said looking at her collection of motorcycle.

She pick a red one and remove the wig for now just because it would get messy and place a helmet on her head, placing her stuff in the bag on the side before she would go out of her private area and close the door. And there we go it was a successful launch into the city. Taking the highway as soon as she could she would go hit the best of view for the planet. The city was kinda compact with large buildings going from the lower level of the city to the top. The artificial sky was bright blue and was clear. Screens were showing the news where they would speak of her performance, but all she cared so far was the wind of freedom.

[Attn: EDI, Open]

"Affirmative. Uploading Now."

Kydoimos waited for the mission details to update. Apparently he was scheduled for deployment on the planet's surface in 17 hours. The planet's information would be updated and transmitted closer to the mission start. It was still being acquired by probe, recon, and by the salvage crews that would be going out on a mission soon.

There was one startling update though, that drew Kydoimos' attention to the crew manifest. The sole crew member in stasis wasn't anymore, the crew member's name was:

Jasmine Palmer

A human, and the sole Organic who could actually remember the launch of the mission. It was interesting that she had been returned to service, but then again Kydoimos didn't know the reasons for such a thing, he wasn't cleared for that level of information.

Kydoimos hadn't actually met this Palmer but he did possess basic level information on her, mainly just her identification. Should he happen to meet her in the street he would be able to ID her, though it was unlikely she would ID him.

"EDI, Commencing Leisurely Transit to Mission Deployment Zone." He left it unsaid but both of them would remain in communication as the mission information continued to update.

Kydoimos walked through the long laid dust, leaving his foot prints behind as he walked towards the exit. He would go through the outer corridors, then cut across through residential so he could admire the changes the Organics had imposed on their living environment since his last service date. As he entered the lit corridors of the service tunnels, he began to double check his clearances and run them by command so he wouldn't enter into a prohibited zone.

The request was still pending and Kydoimos was left to wonder if they would allow him to wander through residential on his way to the hangar.

Craisa rolls her eyes at the end of the recording. What does it matter if she's to work on time or not? She'll finish her assignment, when she get's around to it anyway... maybe. *sigh* Alright, he had every right to be angry with her. Craisa hopped off of her chair and placed her notebook gently in the middle of her desk. She gathered all of the essentials, water, weapons, etc. in a pack and headed for the Salvage Saint's main office.

She looked through the schedule posted on the wall and saw that she was part of an exploration of one of the nearby moons, lead by Ishmael Nober. Thank goodness she received a reminder. If Craisa forgot about this her pay would most definitely be docked again, as it was she was broke. Craisa knew Ishmael was an excellent fighter but not much else. This was her chance to learn more about him, and maybe cause some trouble on the mission. "Woot," Craisa exclaimed smirking. Craisa tried to forget her socially inept past, so much is changing, after all. Ready, she waited for further orders with a new light shining fantly in her eyes.

[ATTN:  Kydoimos, Jazz]

EDI confirms with a quick "Affirmative."  

She has quite little to say as the blue orb-like hologram disappears from the access panel and then reappears within the stasis room, where Jasmine looks....unhappy.  The blue orb would probably smile if it were capable.  A slight form of amusement slips through EDI's voice, if it is at all possible.

"It is all right, Hyghen."  EDI's voice prompts.  "Ms. Palmer has plenty of time to become more acclimated to the new time in which she has woken.  Feel free to escort her to the Spectre's stored remains."

The Turian nods his head, looking at Jasmine with a question, wondering if she needs the escort, but unwilling to ask it, himself.  His hand moves to this throat, rubbing it with a look of wariness.  

"Welcome back to the Umbrella, Ms. Palmer."  EDI greets politely, ignoring Hyghen's rude and hesitant behavior.  "I do have files prepared for you, which includes all information on our current crew, as well as the current date and files left for you by the Spectre."


[ATTN:  Sonali]

As Sonali is finishing a sentence, a young Asari with pink markings on her cheeks bumps into her hastily, the Drell that she had been dragging about managing to catch her before her face planted into the floor.  He bent over with agility, taking hold of her forearms from behind and pulling her back up to a full stand.

"Oh!  I'm so sorry!"  The young Asari says, her hand moving to her forehead with a short, quick slap.  "I didn't mean to--"

"Imadorie."  The Drell interrupts.  "What have we learned?"

The young Asari girl pouts, crossing her arms before her.  Words slip from her lips so very quietly and with a mopey, childlike groan.  "...not to run."  

"I didn't hear you."  The Drell says, standing straight and clasping his hands behind his back with the expectation of a soldier.  

"Not to run in the hallways."  Imadorie repeats.  "I'm sorry, father.  It won't happen again.  And I'm sorry, ma'am.  I didn't mean to interrupt you or to hurt you."

The Drell smiles, this time, pleased with the girls more mannerly apology and the admission of her mistake.  He can tell by her sheepish expression that she would probably blush if her skin color didn't hide it so effectively.

{Attn: Imadore, Open}

Sonali was finishing up on her supply list and was transmitting it. She was not paying attention when something plows into her. She looks to see a young Asari and a Drell. She listens to their conversation. “Thank you for your apologies, no harm was done. Tell me young one why are you in such a hurry? Is there something exciting going on?” She points at her white lab coat. “I get so busy sometimes.” Sonali loves children. There is something about their sense of curiosity that makes her smile. Childhoods do not last very long and are so precious.

(ATTN : Open)

Finally taking an exit, she gets on smaller streets to finally go into a back alley, making sure no one was around or looking. The backalley was near some parking lots in which there was space for motorcycle. But before she would bring it there.... She remove her helmet and take out the wig from her back, putting it on and placing it. Alehina then tie the helmet on the motorcycle and put sunglasses on before she start moving it manually out of the back alley as the parking lot was pretty close. She place the motorcycle on the parking which were quite special. Once you would enter your motorcycle inside the mechanism it locks it, keeping others from stealing it and register the owner to unlock it on their arrival after they recheck. Of course that would probably ring a flag to the cavalry, but... she'll be hard to reconize with her disguise.

The mechanism have a double identification of fingerprint and eyelid detection. Alehina go through the procedure and it identifies her, she then hurries to get away from there to go and have her fun underground where the malls lies. Place being quite restricted, malls were built under various residential floors to save space.


***


- Bodyguard Side -

Both of the bodyguards had found out quickly enough that the lady under their protection had ran off again, but not quickly enough to catch her it would seems. They made it to her hangar about twenty minutes after she left and they both shook their heads.

''Honestly this lady, what if something happens and we're not there ? We'll be the one to blame for not being there, I swear she gets nothing. '' Kamila said in a tone of irritation.

''Calm down, we'll find her like we always do. She's not very good at hiding her traces after all. '' Darian said with a smile as he took out his celphone and made a blue screen pop out of it checking something..

''Well I just hope nothing will happen since I would feel like I'm unworthly of being an officier if I can't perform such a small task. '' Kamila added.

''Ah ! There we go, she used a parking. See ? I told you it was fine. Now let's hurry. '' Darian said running toward the car.

''Are you like... spying on her files or something ? ... '' Kamila asked following behind.

''Don't worry I just connected to the main security department to trace anything she does electronic speaking so we may find her. She may have closed her celphone, buuut... if she's going to spend money she'll use credit card and we'll know where she was last. '' He stop in front of the driver's door and opened it. His partner taking the other front seat available.

''Good point... though you still sound like a stalker... Maybe I should keep an eye on you ... '' Kamila said starring at him before he start up the car.

''Look who's talking ! '' Darian said with a little laugh as he start up only to be glared by his partner.

They immediatly move toward the said parking to go investigate.


***


- Alehina's side -

''Aaah it feels so good to be walking around this place alone and free ! '' Alehina thought looking around to those amazing malls with screens and lights everywhere, different malls connecting to the next. She always thought the sight was beautiful. Alehina liked to come to public places such as this to enjoy the life from a normal view and see people at the natural. Technicly she was there more for a walk then anything. If she followed a certain path she would be able to get to close to the North window. She felt a bit hungry already however.... well she wasn't close to the window yet.

Some people gave her weird looks from the fact that she had sunglasses on and a jacket on her shoulders though. Alehina finally decide to buy a small strawberry bar with a green tea to calm down her stomach a bit and of course pays with her credit card, thanking the man behind the counter she take her snack and her drink and keep moving forward while she eat the bar as the green tea was still a bit too hot.


***


- Bodyguards side -

There was no trace of her in the whole mall and both of the bodyguards were starting to break a sweat walking this fast around.

Darian feels hear a little sound coming from his celphone and take the call. ''Yes ?..'' No image appear however the audio is just directed to his earplug instead to not get people's attention.

Another man quickly says ''She just used her credit card, I'm sending you the location. '' And the man hang up.

''Sure are cold in that department, he could at least say goodbye.'' Darian said as a joke.

''Darian...'' Kamila said in a dark tone.

''I know not the time for jokes.'' He made the screen pop out and checked where this location was and closed it back starting to rush that way.

[Attn: EDI]

Jazz hears the electronic voice and her eyes narrow. "Oh...right...the A.I," she says. She hesitates to respond until she is told she can go ahead to the final resting place of her mentor. "Thank you," she says coldly. She'd forgotten about it. If there was anything she trusted less than the Alliance Council, it was A.I's. she wouldn't argue their convenience, but it made her wary. "Point me to an Omni-Tool and I'll look over the files."

Then she turns to 'Hyghen'. "Right. Sorry about throttling you. It was a reflex. If you would, lead the way to the burial grounds or whatever you have on this tub."

[ATTN: Corridors headed towards residential, Open]

EDI confirmed his permissions for his desired excursion into the residential quarters as the confirmation from command arrived simultaneously. As Kydoimos traversed the corridors, he heard the echoing of his heavy footsteps off the walls.

There was little to no traffic in these secure sections of the ship. He periodically passed emergency bulkheads and the occasional cleaning-bots. Kydoimos often wondered how many Synthetic Intelligences became contemptuous or expressed pity for other machines, as if they where some lesser brothers/sisters.

They where machines but not Synthetics, though Kydoimos had risen from among their ranks himself. In that he more closely mirrored the Geth, though there was some debate on if they where actual AI's or not. Kydoimos changed his course to put himself out of the way of another service droid, this one repairing a damaged section of wall panel that had been removed to repair the circuitry underneath.

There was an empathy that Kydoimos felt to other machines, even the ones that performed only a single function. Did he understand the scientific and technological differences between himself and other machines? Yes. It merely seemed like he drew a parallel between himself and other machines, much like the races of the Alliance view each other.

It wasn't impossible for him not to have noticed that he had reached the access doors into the residential district, after all his systems notified him of it. Kydoimos was constantly aware of his position inside the ship, and the position of things around him, even when he wasn't connected to the navigation systems of the ship.

Utterly aware of where he was and where he was headed, he purposefully chose to stick to the back roads so as to not interfere with popular traffic or cause public unease with his presence.

The scenery was different then a few months ago. Organic influences caused a certain level of permissible change on their environment almost constantly. Kydoimos passed by a group of people streaming some sort of show off the Ethernet. Perhaps later once he had found a terminal he would look into it, and why the Organics seemed so captivated about this idol singer.

Kydoimos proceeded in observing the Organics as he continued his slow walk towards the mission rendezvous point.

He walked toward the Salvage Saints headquarters calmly and collected, but inside he could barely contain himself. He felt like skipping! Shasta's lunch had been especially delicious. The woman was an angel of mercy. He was already trying to dream up what he'd make her for next week.

The corridors were starting to fill up; people getting off work and such. He slipped through the throngs absentmindedly, a dance he was far too used to. He was excited about the mission they'd be going on soon, but nervous. He was to be leading this one. That...unnerved him.

He walked into the offices and saluted formally. "Ishmael Nober reporting for duty," he said succinctly.

[ATTN:  Sonali]

"Yes!"  Imadorie says happily, "My father and I are headed to the North windows!  You'll be able to see the planet from there in an hour or so!"

Her hand reaches out to the Drell's arm as she refers to him as her father and he smiles fondly.  His other hand falls to his side as he lets her continue to speak, choosing silence as a proper greeting, this time.

"The planet is beautiful, I bet!  I want to see what it looks like from space!  Aren't you interested at all?   I know you look like a doctor and all, but a planet from space is still really coooool!!"  Imadorie rambles on excitedly.  "You could come with us!"

"Apologies, ma'am."  The Drell says, "I am Kaed.  It is all right if you are busy.  We do not mean to be a delay to your schedule."



[ATTN:  Jazz]

Hyghen nods his head with confirmation and moves forward, leading Jasmine down a set of stairs and eventually towards a dimly lit room.  They walk for about ten minutes in silence, the Turian surely having nothing to say.  He does, however, stop after a while to retrieve an omni-tool for Jasmine and hands it over without much of anything but a kind gesture.

Then, they continue on again until the reach a room with walls that appear to be...a massive plaque.  Names are carved into it, neatly arranged in an orderly pattern, with space where names have not been carved on a few of the walls near the entrance to the room.  The floor also has some names carved into it, though the ceiling does not.  

After a few taps onto his own omni-tool, he says "Ah.  It is here."

He moves towards the central most wall in front of the entrance and points to the Spectre's name, which was carved in a different font than the others, it would seem, probably due to his Spectre status.   He looks over at her awkwardly, silent, but then finally says:  "I'll uh...leave you two alone.  I'll be at the door when you are ready to meet with the Council.  Then I can escort you there."


[ATTN:  Craisa, Ishmael]

Silvis smiles, looking up from his desk with his blue-screened, holographic computer shining a blue hue onto his face.  He had scowled when Craisa had entered the room, but now his countenance is quite the opposite.  

"Greetings, Ishmael.  A pleasure to see you--and just on time.  You are ever so punctual."  Silvis the Salarian appraises with his speedy speech.  "I do have here a list of your team.  The highest ranking member, other than yourself, on the team is Craisa, so unless you choose to ask a secondary member to join you, I am afraid that is all you will have to work with."

With that, he looks at Craisa with narrowed eyes, clearly unsatisfied as she slumps about the room, obviously ignoring his insulting comments.  She doesn't seem at all phased by his words or critiquing.  Asari, Silvis thinks to himself with disapproval, shaking his head.

Ishmael kept himself neutral, affecting not to notice Silvis' barbs at Craisa. It seemed to him that was unprofessional and he didn't like it, but he was not the ranking officer so it didn't matter. What couldn't be changed must be endured.

"There is one more person I was informed of that might prove useful to the mission," he said when the Salarian had finished. "Alehina Lordine. Would you happen to know where I might find her?" He turned to regard Craisa. "And you're welcome to accompany me to recruit her, Craisa."

[Attn: Ishmael, Silvis]

Criasa paced about the small room absentmindedly, she couldn't help but be overly excited about the mission and nearly forgot it hadn't began yet. She went over the mistakes she'd made during her past missions, the list went on and on. "Then, I didn't really care either way, now that there's something to work towards I'll be fine," she thought, her spirits intact.

When suddenly, the person on her mind, Ishmael, walked into the room. She turned to face him and her mouth dropped open for a moment. He was insanely tall, how didn't she realize that before? "I must be a total space cadet," she thought. Craisa shrugged as he formally introduced himself to Silvis, he seemed to be self important, but it was too early to pass judgement. She swung her left leg forward and let her feet and mind wonder once again.


"There is one more person I was informed of that might prove useful to the mission," he said when the Salarian had finished. "Alehina Lordine. Would you happen to know where I might find her?" He turned to regard Craisa."And you're welcome to accompany me to recruit her, Craisa."

Craisa stopped and looked to Ishmael. She shook her head fast, "No, idea! But, I would love to join you." She wasn't completely sure what was going on but that didn't really matter. She walked to Ishmael's side, sure that she looked tiny in comparison. Craisa laughed to herself, "Let's go!"

[Attn: Open, Hyghen]

Jazz stands at the wall, observing everything around her.  There were...a lot of names here.  Every one of them haunted her.  She actually recognized a few.  Mourning was a lot harder on a person when they were in a situation to do it all at once.  Everyone she ever knew...dead.  But she stopped at the name of her old mentor and friend.  "Stubborn old Krogan," she says to herself.  "Krogan live long lives, you said.  I'll live to see the colony, you said.  What's worse, you actually got me to believe it."  She stands there in silence, wandering off into the dangerous abandoned world known as her memories.

"Kid, I don't think I even know any Krogan as hard headed as you,"

"Getting soft, old man?" Jazz says, holding her pistol on him.

"Don't let any other Krogan hear you say that to them. They'll gut you like a fish," the Krogan says.

His own weapon had seemingly been shot from his hand. It was between the two of them on the floor and her gun was working with disrupt or ammo. A few shots would drop his shields. "Check-"

Suddenly the Krogan disappears. A Krogan infiltrator was...something you didn't see every day. Jazz fires off a few shots instinctively. But they all hit the wall at the opposite side of the room. Even more suddenly, she's bowled over. The next thing she sees is her mentor in cloaking as he plows into her with the ol' Krogan Charge. Her shields drop immediately and he stands over her. "Mate," he says, smugly.

"You said-"

"I know what I said. Your enemies are going to say things too. Spectres have to expect the unexpected. Or do you think everyone out to kill you is going to be fighting fair?" He boasts with a smirk, helping her up.

"I could've-"

"You could've...what? Your shields were down. I'm a Krogan."

Jazz smiles and looks up at him.


He was laid back for a Spectre, let alone a Krogan Spectre. Once her trip down memory lane was over and done with, Jazz sifts through the files she'd received on her Omni-Tool before walking out to Hyghen. "I'll get my things and then you can take me to see the Council," she says. Once she'd gotten her belongings, including an improved version of her old ensemble, complete with her favorite jacket, she heads off with Hyghen to have her little meeting.

- Bodyguards side -

As they arrive at the small stand that was offering drinks and snacks. Alehina was obviously not there and pulling off some strings, Darian managed to get the electronic bill of what she bought and approached to get more information from the man at the cash. ''Excuse me... Have you seen a woman that is about this tall.'' He said showing how tall she would be compared to him and then added. ''She should have bought green tea and a strawberry bar not so long ago. ''

''Excuse me sir.... but why would you want that kind of information ? ...'' The man behind the cash asked, wondering.

''Well that's because we're from security...'' He showed his security ID.

Kamila nods and then say ''Yes and we would need all the info we can have please. ''

''O-Oh... well I think I know who you're talking about.... I'm not sure if she's the one you're looking for, but she went that way after ordering... I kinda couldn't help but look at her since she had a jacket on her shoulders and sunglasses inside. ''

Darian and Kamila looked at each other and nod.

''Thank you for the information. We'll follow that track. '' And they were once again off to try and find the young lady.

- Alehina's side -

As she finally arrived near the north window, she threw her tea's glass in the garbage as well as the wrapping of the strawberry bar she had eaten. Walking a few more minutes outside of the mall, she finally made it to this huge area that was the window which would open soon and she went forward trying to get a good spot. ''Should I open my celphone I wonder ? ... '' She stared at it for a good minute before opening it and placing it on vibration. After all she would want to take pictures when this would open.

Of course that would give a signal to her bodyguards, but... if she asked to stay here to see they would probably understand... maybe ?

Darian finally got a signal from the singer's celphone being online. ''North window Kamila. '' He said rushing along with her toward there. When they arrived they immediatly spoted the singer because of the jacket and the sunglasses.

Kamila seemed quite angry of how this lady made them worried, but also seemed relieved to see her okay. ''I'll go find her.''

''No wait.'' Darian said with a smile. ''She obviously came here for a good reason... which is to watch the show. Keep your eyes on her and a certain distance. If we go to her, others will think its suspicious. ''

Kamila sigh and says ''Honestly you're too easy on her, but fine. ''

Darian smiled and looked toward the lady. ''At least we found her, which is what counts. ''

(ATTN : Open, North Window)

Alehina looked toward the windows, not knowing yet that her bodyguards were already in the same room. In fact she was getting a bit impatient to see that world... she also wondered if she would be able to go out soon and see all of this from a closer angle.

[Attn: Craisa]

Silvis' response to Ishmael's query was that he hadn't a clue where Alehina was located, but that he might inquire to her guild as they would probably be able to assist. He saluted his superior respectfully, then nodded for Craisa to follow and left.

[ATTN:  Sonali, Alehina]

"Excellent.  I am sure that Imadorie will continue to lead the way, but she will walk more slowly this time."  Kaed's eyes move down to his daughter who slightly slumps in her shoulders, her energy now trampled over by her neutral father--but she could handle it!

"I can handle moving to your slow, aged pace."  Imadories says with an evil smirk towards her father, "I can move mountains..!...but I can also remain like that of a person with your extreme age, just for yooouuu."

She's clearly teasing him with a mischievous glint in her eyes as she turns to walk normally.  As they almost reach the windows, she gasps, her hands moving up against the glass as she waits impatiently for the planet to appear.  The edges of it's surface can be seen from the window's corner.  Imadorie almost pushes her face against the glass, but Kaed's hand meets her forehead in time to stop her.  She scowls, but her gaze quickly returns to the window.



[ATTN:  Jazz]

Jasmine is quickly lead to the Comms Room, the Turian uttering a quick "see ya around" before he exits and closes the door behind him.  If you were making an ordinary house call, one would just punch in the right code--but the Council was a bit more difficult to reach without the proper clearance.  Jasmine presses the button to the pilot, who responds with a sweet and soft voice.  "This is Jacquelyn.  Where can I transfer your call?"

When Jasmine clarifies her needs and identification, Jacquelyn is quick to bring the call connection successfully, allowing for six Holographic figures to appear before her.  Each of these were quite different from each other--an Asari, Turian, Salarian, Krogan, Human, and Quarian.  Each of these seem to appear quite neutral, except for that of the Krogan, who looks impatient and barely able to keep still.

"Jasmine Palmer.  You are calling us from Umbrella Colonization Project."  The Asari speaks first, and they look at Jasmine with expectation.  "We are aware that you have been approved for Spectre Status by previous Council members, as well as trained by a Spectre before he passed away for your mission."

A few of the others shift their positions as the Asari continues to speak.  "We, however, are a different Council and we do not know you.  We know only that you are a pirate--a vagabond, and although you may be the only asset in that location that the Council has at this time, your allegiance to the Citadel Council is questionable."


The Salarian cuts in here.  "You have no supervisor.  Your record shows that you constantly disregarded Council authority and pursued criminal activities.  Your only claim to your Spectre status is the interposing of your mentor, whom we are also not familiar with."

"Anyone who could have proved to be an asset to you no longer exists."  The Turian adds, placing his hands behind his back and standing erect.  "Your military service record is insufferably short and you have not had complete Spectre training before your stasis period.  Have you even attempted to find out the situation on board the Colony before contacting us?  I highly doubt you have sought to confer with Commander Mytrell or the Governing bodies of the Guilds since you have awakened--"

The Krogan begins to speak roughly with a raised voice, his finger now pointing at his fellow Council members.  "You soft-boiled, brain-addled bureaucrats!  Her records are just fine--she's got enough fire and backbone for a human to get any job done and you have little other choice than to let her keep this status!"

The Krogan's voice lowers threateningly towards Jasmine as he now speaks to her, his finger lowered.  "I don't trust you.  I don't know you--but I don't have to know you to use you.  And if you fail, I hope you can have the decency to die in the process.   I say we let her keep the status, test her quads that she don't have, and move along.  This is a waste of my time."

The Krogan's Holographic form then disappears with a quick beep as the others look at his empty space with furious tolerance.  It would appear that the rest of the Council members are very well familiar with the Krogan's attitude and behavior, as well as to the quick-footed exit that he makes from a meeting.  

The Asari Matriarch resumes the conversation.  "As you can see, we the Council are uncertain if you are qualified for this position.  However, we are more than willing to give you chance to assure us that you are indeed qualified, after all, as your mentor assured us in his files."

[Attn: Council]

As amusing as seeing the rest of the council getting chewed out by a Krogan was, Jazz kept a straight face and stood erect when faced with the council's accusations. "Acknowledged," she states simply when they are finished their...polite ranting. "If I may, however, it has come to my attention that the human and Quarian representatives haven't spoken." She eyes the two of them but continues to talk before either can speak. "I only found it interesting. Nothing to think about, I'm sorry." She then relaxes herself a bit with crossed arms and closed eyes.

"With respect, councilors, I did not ask for this position. However many years ago it was that the offer was made, I said that I would accept it, should the council decide to bestow such a status," she sees mouths preparing to move but she cuts them off again. "And it was. With that being said, I would be honored to accept this status but also wholly understand your position. It is, after all, quite the...responsibility. If you elected not to bestow such a title to a...to me, then I would not be upset and would, of course, return to active U-Sec duty."

Then she opens her Omni-tool and glances over the files again, "You are, of course, very well informed, councilors. I was a pirate and I did have problems with the previous council. Personally, I don't think the Turian representative liked me too much. And I thought I had such an electric personality," she jests. "No doubt you also know that those pirates serving alongside me were abductees from a Slaver raid...abductees that I freed...alone. Several witness reports were among my files on that."

She scrolls through more files. "You've misread my file, however. I never disregarded council authority to pursue criminal activities. I disregarded Council Authority because of what I was in training to do. There was no way out of a particular situation where Council regulation wouldn't be compromised. I would much rather complete a mission at the risk of being scolded, than fail a mission altogether. As for the political ramifications, I was never assigned anything where the political backlash couldn't be easily rectified." The she pauses. "The first human Spectre had to prove they were worthy of the position as well. If you wish it, I will do the same. Is that not fair?"
