Heckle and Jeckle

[14:04:18] <Wixelt> Wilson ambles into the commons
[14:13:07] <Toulouse> Theresa follows in shortly after and plops down on a comfy chair.
[14:13:19] <Wixelt> "Morning"
[14:13:25] <Wixelt> Wilson nods
[14:19:45] <Toulouse> "Mornin'. How are you doing?"
[14:19:51] <Wixelt> "Good" Wilson smiles
[14:21:50] <Toulouse> She plays with the edge of her shirt a little. "Can I ask you soming?"
[14:21:56] <Toulouse> Something*
[14:22:48] <Wixelt> "Sure, go ahead"
[14:24:32] <Toulouse> "I have been sick for the past week or and Olga told me about this betrayal…and a bunch of people died from anthrax…who did that all?
[14:24:34] <Toulouse> "
[14:25:01] <Wixelt> Wilson frowns "Anthrax…"
[14:25:17] <Wixelt> "I'm sorry, but this is actually the first i've heard about anthrax."
[14:25:30] <Wixelt> "As for betrayals…"
[14:26:21] <Wixelt> "We had one Adrian Coxwell defect from the Foundation, but I can't be sure that it's the same incident that Olga was referring to"
[14:33:16] <Toulouse> She shrugs. "I don't know. I feel like I met Adrian once but I haven't been here that long so I am not sure. As for the one olga was talking about I didn't want to press the issue. It seems like she is taking it hard."
[14:35:28] * ShotgunFiendM has joined #origins-ic
[14:36:10] <Wixelt> "In that case, I can't be sure i'm talking about the right person"
[14:42:31] <Toulouse> She nods and looks to her lap. "If it's not out of place for me to ask but the one Adrian who defected…why did he? If you even know why he would have?"
[14:46:07] <Wixelt> "I'm not sure. As far as i've heard he was always a bad egg, and was simply waiting til now to reveal that"
[14:51:00] <Toulouse> " ahh I see." She shifts in her chair and gets a bit more comfortable. "I am sorry for bring it up. I know it's not the best thing to jump into for am conversation but it has been bothering me for the past day or so."
[14:52:03] * Balthazaar has joined #origins-ic
[14:53:37] * ChanServ set modes [+h] on Balthazaar
[14:54:00] <Toulouse> "So! What have you been working on as of late?" She semi forces a smile.
[14:57:45] <Wixelt> "Not much. I hit a wall in my research a while back and haven't been able to get anywhere with it since"
[15:00:43] <Balthazaar> Jane wanders into commons, yawning. She's average height, pale and with brown hair
[15:03:48] <Wixelt> Wilson turns and smiles "Hello there"
[15:04:51] <Balthazaar> "Mnuh? Oh… Hey…" She waves a bit, sitting down. She has an Australian accent
[15:07:38] <Wixelt> "I don't believe i've seen you around before" Wilson holds out his hand "Dr. Elliot Wilson at your service"
[15:08:37] <Balthazaar> She shakes his hand lightly. "Jane Price…" She smiles. "I'm new… Got here last night. Still getting used to your weird weather up here."
[15:09:41] <Wixelt> "So, what'd you get hired as?"
[15:10:51] <Balthazaar> "Oh, um… Basically I'm here so I'm not out there. Figured if I chipped in here I'd feel like less of a sponge, so I'm doing a bit of xenobiology for you folks. Figure out what makes your Bities and nasties tick."
[15:11:31] <Toulouse> Theresa stands up and walks over to Jane and holds out her hand. "Hey I'm theresa." She smiles.
[15:11:37] <Wixelt> "Given some of the things we deal with here, that might be a good skill to have"
[15:12:34] <Balthazaar> "G'day/
[15:12:34] <Balthazaar> "
[15:12:50] <Balthazaar> She smiles warmly, shaking Theresas hand
[15:13:51] <Toulouse> She plops back down in to her chair.
[15:15:49] <Toulouse> "So you got here last night? You settling in alright?"
[15:17:31] <Balthazaar> "It's great here, yeah." She nods, idly swatting at something that isn't there. "I could use a bit of help remembering to do some things by my self again, but I'll learn again soon enough."
[15:21:06] <Toulouse> " I know how that is. I still get a little lost sometimes here."
[15:21:49] <Wixelt> Wilson frowns at her "You alright?"
[15:23:10] <Toulouse> "Me?"
[15:23:23] <Balthazaar> "Me?"
[15:24:45] <Wixelt> Wilson nods in Jane's direction
[15:26:21] <Balthazaar> "Oh… Er… Yeah, pretty good… The doc said It'd take some rehabilitation through time." she nods
[15:27:07] <Toulouse> She head tilts slightly.
[15:27:08] <Wixelt> "I see" Wilson nods.
[15:27:38] <Wixelt> ~Must be some mental issue. It's probably best that I don't press the issue.~
[15:28:47] <Toulouse> She glances at them both for their recations.
[15:29:15] * DrSavage has joined #origins-ic
[15:29:41] <Balthazaar> Jane sits with her arms crossed over her tummy as though she were wearing an invisible strait jacket. She seems happy enough.
[15:31:43] <Toulouse> "Well anyways… where are you from jane?" She smiles at her.
[15:33:34] <Balthazaar> "Oh, Melbourne… In Australia." Jane smiles. "Then Kenya, a brief stint somewhere in the Carpathians, then London, now here." She grins
[15:40:16] <Toulouse> "Oh wow you have been to a lot of places! Makes me seem like a major home body then." She chuckles.
[15:42:37] <Balthazaar> "The Carpathians and London weren't great. I'd have rather stayed home." She laughs
[15:48:38] <Toulouse> "I have only ever lived in this one city for all of my life. So I'm envious you got to travel so much."
[15:49:22] <Balthazaar> Jane nods, but seems a bit uncomfortable now
[15:55:35] <Toulouse> "Did I say something that bothered you?"
[15:55:46] <Toulouse> "I am sorry if I did."
[15:56:21] <Balthazaar> "Yes." she nods. "But it's okay."
[15:57:54] <Toulouse> She frowns a little. "Sorry."
[15:58:44] <Balthazaar> "It's okay." She smiles a bit unnervingly
[15:59:09] <Wixelt> Wilson frowns, but decides to shrug it off.
[16:03:53] <Toulouse> Theresa sits in silence. Making sure to not say anything stupid or rude again.
[16:04:17] <Balthazaar> Before looking at nothing like she's listening to something only she can hear, mutting a bit to herself
[16:07:05] <Wixelt> Wilson gets up
[16:07:15] <Wixelt> "Well, I best get back to work"
[16:08:00] <Toulouse> She nods to wilson and waves good bye to him.
[16:08:28] <Wixelt> Wilson waves back, before exiting
[16:08:36] <Balthazaar> "Oh, bye." She smiles
[16:11:33] * DrSavage has quit (Ping timeout)
[16:11:40] <Balthazaar> Janes eye tics, then she gets up and walks over to Theresa. sitting by her and staring intently. "You're a pretty one…" Her voice sounds deeper
[16:15:18] <Balthazaar> She smiles, showing way too much tooth
[16:16:07] <Toulouse> She stares at her and blinks. "T-Thank you?
[16:16:58] <Balthazaar> "How would you taste…" She leans closer and closer, putting a hand on Theresas leg. "What are you in the dark?"
[16:16:58] <Toulouse> "You have very nice teeth." She seems nervous.
[16:17:04] <Toulouse> "Huh?"
[16:17:56] <Toulouse> "…in the dark?"
[16:18:09] <Balthazaar> "Oh, I could have fun with you…" She laughs. "In the dark, in the light, right here…"
[16:20:20] <Wixelt> It's at about this point that a young man with slicked back black hair and a black leather jacket strolls in arrogantly
[16:22:18] <Balthazaar> Jane laughs and looks over to the newcomer. She jumps to her feet, putting her arms around his waist. "Well hello there stud!" She laughs
[16:23:08] <Wixelt> The man frowns at Jane, before pushing her away.
[16:23:12] <Wixelt> "Nah, not my type"
[16:24:39] <Balthazaar> "Oh, boyo, who said anything about /your/ type!?" She laughs, running a hand across his cheek
[16:24:58] <Toulouse> Theresa just sits there looking a bit disoriented. ~was she flirting with me?! What the hell?~
[16:26:32] <Wixelt> "I did"
[16:26:39] <Wixelt> A scowl crosses the man's face
[16:27:00] <Toulouse> She shakes her head and looks at the new guy. "Oh.. uh hi" She forces a grin.
[16:27:54] <Wixelt> The man ignores Theresa, his full attention locked onto Jane.
[16:28:00] <Balthazaar> Jane chuckles nastily. "We'll have fun, you and I."
[16:28:26] <Balthazaar> Her voice seems to be Janes… and a deeper, rumbly one as if just /behind/ Janes
[16:28:52] <Wixelt> A hesitant look crosses the man's face, before he grins extremely sadistically
[16:28:52] <Wixelt> "If that's how you want it"
[16:29:12] <Wixelt> He produces a couple of cards from seemingly nowhere
[16:29:22] <Wixelt> They're both 2s of Spades
[16:29:46] <Wixelt> Roll Agility
[16:30:16] <Balthazaar> 4df+3
[16:30:27] <Glacon> Balthazaar: 0 (4df+3=4-, 4-, 0, 4-)
[16:30:27] <Balthazaar> :|
[16:30:41] <Wixelt> 4df+6 Discard and Draw
[16:30:41] <Glacon> Wixelt: Discard and Draw: 9 (4df+6=3+, 3+, 0, 3+)
[16:32:11] <Wixelt> The two cards fly at you at high speed, slicing into your arm like knives. They're only skin deep, and no health points are lost.
[16:32:25] <Wixelt> The two cards embed themselves in the far wall.
[16:33:14] <Balthazaar> Janes eyes light up in glee. "Oh yes, I like this! More!" She sidles up closer
[16:33:35] <Wixelt> The man frowns for a moment, before grinning again.
[16:33:39] <Wixelt> "No."
[16:35:02] <Balthazaar> Jane rather suddenly looks dizzy, before stumbling into a chair and holding her head.
[16:35:56] <Wixelt> The man grins darkly.
[16:36:20] <Balthazaar> "I… I'm so sorry…" She sounds normal again.
[16:36:55] <Balthazaar> Upset, but normal. "That was him… Not me… I… I should go…"
[16:37:00] <Wixelt> "So that's how it is, eh?"
[16:37:09] <Wixelt> He produces a couple more cards.
[16:38:05] <Toulouse> Theresa is just staring at them both. "Uhh?"
[16:38:51] <Wixelt> One card flies towards Jane, the other towards Theresa.
[16:39:00] <Wixelt> Agility?
[16:39:06] <Balthazaar> 4df+3
[16:39:08] <Glacon> Balthazaar: 1 (4df+3=4-, 4-, 3+, 4-)
[16:39:18] <Wixelt> 4df+6 Discard and Draw
[16:39:26] <Glacon> Wixelt: Discard and Draw: 5 (4df+6=0, 4-, 0, 0)
[16:39:32] <Toulouse> 4df+3
[16:39:33] <Glacon> Toulouse: 4 (4df+3=3+, 0, 4-, 3+)
[16:39:43] <Wixelt> It slices into your arm again, but not as severely as last time. It may be apparent that this might be intentional.
[16:39:51] <Wixelt> 4df+6 Discard and Draw
[16:39:52] <Glacon> Wixelt: Discard and Draw: 6 (4df+6=4-, 0, 0, 3+)
[16:40:34] <Wixelt> Theresa, as you dodge it, it whizzes past yor arm, leaving a small mark.
[16:40:43] <Balthazaar> Jane whimpers. "Please don't hurt me… It wasn't me… It was /him/… I'm sorry…" She seems extremely rattles
[16:40:43] <Balthazaar> *Rattled
[16:40:52] <Wixelt> The man just grinned.
[16:41:13] <Toulouse> " What was that for?"
[16:41:37] <Toulouse> Theresa gets up and tries to help jane. "You okay?"
[16:41:37] <Wixelt> "That was because I like hurting people"
[16:43:28] <Balthazaar> Jane hugs Theresa, "I'm sorry I'm sorry…"
[16:43:29] <Wixelt> Several guards suddenly burst into the commons, guns trained on the man.
[16:44:17] <Wixelt> The man just grins evily at them, before unleashing a barrage of cards in their direction.
[16:44:26] * Sax has joined #origins-ic
[16:44:37] <Wixelt> 4df+6 Discard and Draw
[16:44:37] <Glacon> Wixelt: Discard and Draw: 4 (4df+6=3+, 4-, 4-, 4-)
[16:45:26] <Wixelt> The cards fly past the guards with only a few scratches here and there, but it's enough for them to seek cover behind the room's furniture.
[16:46:07] <Toulouse> Theresa covers jane. ~who the hell are these people!?~
[16:46:28] <Wixelt> Theresa, it should be apparent that the guards work for the Foundation
[16:47:12] <Wixelt> "GET ON YOUR KNEES!!!" One of the guards yells at the man.
[16:47:20] <Balthazaar> "Theresa, I'm sorry, it wasn't me… It was him he lives in me I'm sorry…"
[16:47:57] <Toulouse> " It's okay it's okay." She pets her head.
[16:48:17] <Wixelt> The man just continues grinning madly
[16:48:25] <Wixelt> "How about /no/."
[16:48:36] <Wixelt> He releases another barrage.
[16:48:49] <Wixelt> 4df+6 Discard and Draw
[16:48:57] <Glacon> Wixelt: Discard and Draw: 9 (4df+6=3+, 3+, 3+, 0)
[16:49:42] <Wixelt> The cards arc through the air, cutting deep into the men, killing most of them.
[16:51:23] <Wixelt> The man chuckles for a moment, before turning his attention back to Theresa and Jane.
[16:51:37] <Toulouse> Theresa glares at him.
[16:51:52] <Balthazaar> Jane is staring in horror
[16:52:20] <Balthazaar> It occurs to her that this is probably the worst first day on a job she's ever had
[16:52:35] <Wixelt> He's about to say something, when he suddenly looks around, apparently having sensed something.
[16:52:43] <Wixelt> Perception
[16:53:06] <Balthazaar> 4df+5
[16:53:10] <Glacon> Balthazaar: 7 (4df+5=4-, 3+, 3+, 3+)
[16:53:13] <Toulouse> 4df+2
[16:53:13] <Glacon> Toulouse: 1 (4df+2=4-, 3+, 4-, 0)
[16:54:44] <Wixelt> Jane, you see that there's a ginger haired man wearing a mix between regal dress and knight's armor standing in the doorway. There's a red heart emblazened on his chest.
[16:54:55] <Wixelt> Theresa, somehow you fail to notice this.
[16:55:03] <Balthazaar> ~Wat.~
[16:55:14] <Balthazaar> "Theresa…"
[16:56:08] <Wixelt> The man grins at the newcomer "So you finally decided to turn up"
[16:56:18] <Toulouse> " yeah?"
[16:56:26] <Balthazaar> "Is he real?"
[16:56:26] <Wixelt> "I wondered how long it'd take"
[16:56:34] <Balthazaar> Jane points at the redhead
[16:56:54] <Balthazaar> Olga walks in, stopping at the doorway. "… The fuck is this?"
[16:56:58] <Toulouse> She looks to where jane is pointing.
[16:57:14] <Toulouse> Is he real?
[16:57:29] <Wixelt> The newcomer just glares at the man "I've been aware of your presence for sometime, Cassino. Why are you here, of all places?"
[16:57:43] <Wixelt> Yes, he is.
[16:58:21] <Wixelt> There's a ginger knight/royal dude in the doorway.
[16:58:30] <Toulouse> "Uhh yeah jane he is real.."
[16:58:40] <Toulouse> "Olga?"
[16:58:42] <Balthazaar> Jane seems relieved. "I'm sorry…"
[16:58:42] <Balthazaar> Olga is frowning heavily
[16:59:16] <Wixelt> 'Cassino' just chuckles darkly "Like I would tell you that"
[17:00:31] <Balthazaar> Olga shakes her head and wanders off
[17:00:43] <Wixelt> The knight dude continues to glare, "These people did nothing to you. You had no reason to harm them"
[17:01:39] * Balthazaar has quit (Quit: The taco came out of the oven, and the Balth followed)
[17:02:06] <Toulouse> " What the hell is going on!?"
[17:02:19] <Wixelt> Cassino: "They were harbouring one of our sworn enemies. I had every right."
[17:03:14] <Toulouse> "Who? Jane?"
[17:03:32] <Wixelt> Knight Dude: "They were not harbouring us. I was attempting to broker a peace treaty with them."
[17:04:35] <Wixelt> Cassino sneers "And you did that by letting them lock you and your daughter in a cage" he claps sarcastically, "Good work with that"
[17:05:56] <Wixelt> Cassino: "Regardless, now that I know of your reasons for being here, I must be off"
[17:06:13] <Wixelt> Knight Dude scowls, "No."
[17:06:15] <Wixelt> "No?"
[17:06:55] <Wixelt> "You will tell me what I want to know"
[17:08:37] <Toulouse> Theresa backs off a little.
[17:09:06] <Wixelt> "Oh really?" Cassino cackles, "And exactly how is the 'great and powerful' Jackal Hearts going to stop me, when I can just do this."
[17:09:26] <Wixelt> Cassino suddenly explodes into a shower of 2 of Spades cards.
[17:09:50] <Wixelt> Luckily, these are of the non-slicing variety.
[17:10:24] <Toulouse> Theresa prepares herself to be cut but isnt. She covers her face and peaks out from behind.
[17:10:47] <Wixelt> Jackal scowls at the spot where Cassino was standing, cursing under his breath.
[17:12:56] <Wixelt> "Papa?" another voice, seemingly of a girl in her early to mid teens, comes from the doorway.
[17:13:02] <Toulouse> "Uh.."
[17:14:15] <Toulouse> This is the most excitment Theresa has ever seen at the foundation so far and she doesn't know how to react quite yet.
[17:17:05] <Wixelt> A girl in her early to mid teens, with long ginger hair, enters the room behind Jackal.
[17:17:34] <Wixelt> Jackal turns to look at her "Sweetie, I would appreciate it if you went back to the cell"
[17:18:14] <Wixelt> "But i'm-" the girl stops when she sees the spread of Spades on the floor, as well as the dead bodies.
[17:18:31] <Wixelt> She pales a little, before nodding silently and walking out again.
[17:18:39] <Wixelt> Jackal sighs.
[17:19:06] <Toulouse> "….." She stands up and dusts herself off.
[17:23:59] <Wixelt> Jackal turns towards Theresa
[17:24:15] <Wixelt> "Are you alright?"
[17:24:45] <Toulouse> "Yeah… I'm fine but what the hell was that all about?"
[17:25:32] <Wixelt> "To put it simply, my family and his family are enemies."
[17:26:55] <Toulouse> " ahh I see."
[17:27:26] <Toulouse> " Are you okay?"
[17:27:35] <Wixelt> "I'm fine"
[17:27:52] <Wixelt> "It's your organisation that i'm worried about"
[17:28:43] <Toulouse> She head tilts. "why?"
[17:28:52] <Wixelt> Jackal sighs
[17:29:42] <Toulouse> "To be fair. I am fairly low ranked and I am not informed on many things. " She blushes a little.
[17:30:04] <Toulouse> "So I wouldn't really know…"
[17:30:19] <Wixelt> "When I first came here, it was because my daughter had been creating trading cards of your staff and assets. In order to see that they wern't destroyed, I agreed to remian here for a time with her to convey information to your organisation, so that we could make an effort to stay out of each other's business more easily"
[17:30:56] <Toulouse> "Wait… like the one I have?"
[17:31:42] <Wixelt> "Most likely, yes"
[17:32:41] <Toulouse> "But.. huh…" She thinks for a moment. "Why can't the cards be destroyed?"
[17:33:38] <Wixelt> "They can, but my daughter begged me not to"
[17:34:42] <Toulouse> "I see. I'm sorry you have gotten thrown into this."
[17:35:49] <Wixelt> "It's no worry, really. I was simply looking out for my daughter"
[17:36:04] <Wixelt> "But your organisation…"
[17:36:17] <Toulouse> " What about it?"
[17:36:37] <Wixelt> "Now that Cassino has discovered my presence here, it will mostly likely be makred as an enemy of his family"
[17:37:04] <Wixelt> "Purely because I remained here for a prolonged period of time"
[17:37:33] <Toulouse> She frowns. "I see…well we will do our best to be prepared for him and take care of you and your daughter."
[17:38:35] <Wixelt> Jackal nods "Thank you, but it will be likely that, as soon as I was informed your superiors of this incident, we will make preparations to leave."
[17:38:58] <Wixelt> "Our continued presence here might simply make things worse"
[17:39:01] * ProcyonGone is now known as ProcyonLotor
[17:39:28] <Wixelt> "And whilst I have no doubt in my mind that your organisation can take care of itself, I wouldn't wish to test that"
[17:40:28] <Toulouse> She nods.
[17:40:30] <Toulouse> " I understand."
[17:44:36] <Wixelt> Jackla gives slight smile, nods again, then turns to exit
[17:45:38] <Toulouse> Theresa plops in a chair and collects her thoughts as he leaves.
