Arcanas listens to what they said and walks towards Cyprus. "Plant those on the door and rig them to go off when the door is opened." He looks at Luna and said "Go have fun with them. Buy us as much time as you can." Luna grinned when she heard this and sinks into the ground. He turns to the rest. "The rest of you get ready. We are leaving this place by jumping." A red halo forms above his head as the darkness around them starts to creep up on them.

At the same time, the troops in the tower are making their way up. As they we almost at the top, the one in the lead trips on something which cause him to fall back. Like a dominoe effect, the rest soon fell on their back and rolled down the stairs. But due to their armour, they are making a heck of a noise as they roll down to the ground floor.

Tuesday shrugged and Mira lowered her weapon. Tuesday moved closer into the shadows, knowing what happened next. Mira followed suit, seeing as Tuesday was.

"Well? Let's get outta this damn place!" Mira said sounding slightly annoyed.

(I hope yup all weren't waiting on me...)

Cyprus nodded at Arcanasa and went to the door way. Setting down the sparkers he then ran his hands over the frame, letting his fingers find any holds or crevices in the frame before picking the psarkers back up again. He looked around the place quickly looking for a string. Upon finding one he tied couple knots around the pins on the sparkers and quickly attached them to both sides of the door frame, when they opened the door, it would push the string out and pull the pins causing for one heck of an explosion. if only he could be there to see the lights...

"Done, Guess we run this time."

Cyprus took a step back into one of the shadows with tuesday and mira.

"Lets go if we're gonna go."

Looking around, Av nodded to Al as they waited for whatever instructions Arcanas would give regarding the disappearing act. "Hopefully we'll be able to go somewhere a bit warmer. Hell, maybe we could even get to the actual topic of the evening." He glanced at the stairs. "Though for now let's just focus on getting out of here in one piece."

Once everything is set, Arcanas uses the darkness to move everyone to safety. Just as everyone disappears, the door was forced open which triggered the trap that was set. The sparkle overloaded the troops night vision, causing them to go blind as they fell back down the stairs.

The darkness has teleported them to another place. It's to dark to see even as the darkness moves away from them. Arcanas snaps his finger and the area lights up. The place looks like an art museum with paintings and sculptures placed around and some of them looking extremely old. There are furnitures made of Flo-wood with elaborate cravings. The place is large enough to hold 30 people inside and still have room for more. As the fireplace nearby lights up to warm the room, Arcanas directs them to a nearby seat so as they can continue their discussion.

At the same time, Luna heads towards the door and opens it and exists the place. "She'll be back later" said Arcanas as he sat on the chair and wait for the others to get comfortable. He looks at Tuesday and Maria and said "Only the two of you are left. Are you in or out?"

Kira wasn't ready for the sudden jump in space. She soon calmed down as she reviewed her surroundings.
"Mira?" Tuesday said in a low voice, and flicked his eyes to his arm.

She smiled regretfully and released it, garnering a 'thank you' from him.

Tuesday sighed and looked at the ragtag group..
Rebellion? Or terrorism? Which is better?

"All right, I'm in. If only because there's nothing better for me to do." Mira looked at him sideways for a moment. There was some serious possibility to get some cash! After seeing him fight and run, she was sure the both of them could take out the rest of the wannabe rebellion. But then he threw it all away, and she couldn't follow up with asking for money, it was like asking for payment of the hearse during the funeral...

"The shock troopers have a vendetta against me now. Normally if you weren't paying, this conversation wouldn't take place, but since he's a uh." She paused for a moment, realizing that the age difference appeared to be only five or six years apart.
"Relative," she finally decided, "You get me Gratis."

She chimed her comm, under the pretense of scratching her ear. The note was a quick and simple way to say 'no contact unless contacted first' to the comm officer of her company. She didn't want to be caught talking to some other hierarchy while in a room of people highly suspicious by nature.

Looking at the black pool Av couldn't help but feel uneasy. However by the sound of their heavy boots, the shock troopers were already at the door. Undoubtedly after their auspicious tumble on the stairs they were wary. Others had by now gone before him, Al giving him a nod before seemingly unfazed stepping into the pool. Having dawdled as long as acceptable, he stepped forward and dropped down. The feeling of falling down without gravity properly tugging at his body felt disconcerting to say the least. There was also the faint impression of a shockwave as he passed through the darkness.

As he felt ground underneath his feet again, he wondered if they'd been dropped from above or just appeared in place. It was too dark to see. Just when he was about to ask where they were and how safe it was, a light began to shine and Arcanas showed them some chairs. Now why didn't we come here in the first place? Wherever this is, at least it's a lot warmer here. Not hard to beat a clock tower in the middle of a winter night though.

The green feline sat down and decided to wait and see what would happen next.

Cyprus was pleased to see the door kick open and then the sparkers go off, even if it was only for half a second. Personally, he would have rather stayed and fought them. Powers or not, he could have taken down at least 3. Ah well, past is past, can't change that now. He felt a little quesy after the teleportation, moving from one place to another in half a second was a little weird. He looked at the little group and wondered if this was all there would be, but when tuesday and mira both agreed they would listen and join the group, he knew that this was it.

"So, then spill the beans on what you couldnt say before. Cam here to hear something and so far im not hearing anything."

Cyprus liked when people got to the point. unless it was puzzles...man did he love puzzles.

"Welcome to the team. Now, as for the information." He held out his hand and Luna came back in holding a file. Arcanas looks at the way she is dressed with the zip at the front of the catsuit all the way down to her waist line and parts enough to give any guy a view he won't forget anytime soon. He looks away and she gave him the file. As he opens it and flips through, Luna sat on the seat's arm rest and lay on her side as she wrap her arms Arcanas neck and lay her head on his shoulder as she looks at the rest.

"The 4 that were not on the news. The reason is because. Unlike the rest, they were eaten. The last thing we want is to alarm the public. So these deaths were not reported and kept away from public knowledge. As for the culprit, it's still unknown at the moment." He than puts the file on the table. "You guys can look at it if you want."

The front of the file has symbol of a wolfs head with it's tongue hanging out and bearing it's teeth at the same time. Behind the head is black kite shield and a sword with 2 springer in a cross guard. Under it says "Black Six" and a warning printed in red which reads "Unauthorized possession of this file or its contents will be terminated with extreme prejudice." Inside the file is all the info regarding the 4 victims, their personal info, where their bodies where found, who they were last seen with, time and last seen location. Further back, the pictures of the body along with measurements of the wounds along with bite marks and other info.

"Now, as for payment. Since Mira, brought it up. You guys will be payed after your official joining. First there is your personal history which I need to see. Among other things. Also, the truth test. The requirement to pass that is simple. But at the same time, very hush if you fail. One lie and your out. Than there is the physical test and combat test as well. And last, your ability to use your power and how to put it to it's maximum potential." Said Arcanas. "This is your first and only warning. If you don't want to be part of this, back out now. Cause once you are in, the only way out is either when your too old. Or in a body bag."

(blah.. I hope it wasn't me everyone was waiting on...)

Mira nodded appreciatively, good, they were getting paid. If she sent a cut back to Mercer, she might be able to get away with a longer leave.

Uncrossing her arms to look at the file,

"Hold on, eaten? I've seen stuff like this outside the walls, but inside? What the hell could be hidden in a city that could do this."

Tuesday however, had a much different concern on his mind.

Personal history.... Oh that'll be rich.

He then spoke to Mira,
"I don't think this is any ordinary creature we're talking about here," He held up one of the pictures of the victims.
"These aren't feeding bites, killing only. Normal animals generally feed after a kill. But aside from that, Arcanas, isn't your requirements a tad steep? I have no plans on dying, well, who does? And old age Really isn't going to be a big problem for most of us. And how do you plan on testing us eh?"

Tuesday wondered how much forethought had gone into Arcanas' planning, it seemed like quite the motley crew from the looks of it.
