    "Camryn, you okay there?" He stayed a little closer than he should have, hiding a wince as the hot air started to hurt more than simply sting.
    Cammy coughed before rubbing her eyes with the back of her arm, "I-I... I will be. Never been suffocated before. These things move so fast! I couldn't..."

    She looked over to the battle, "Someone saved me."

    She wiped her eyes again and looked back over to Sloane, forcing a smile, "If it wasn't for Skye's armor, I'd be a red smear. I've gotta thank her later."

    With the perception granted by her newly gained speed, she let her gaze fall back upon the battlefield, super-heating every enemy machine in sight.

    "Thanks for stopping to help, Sloane."

    "I've got to thank Skye too. For keepin' you safe, that is." Sloane nodded, trying to ignore the heat as best as he could.

    He twirled the knives in his hands to keep his mind off of the blistering pain.

    "And... it's no big deal, Cammy. Although I'm not sure if you want me fightin' here or with the others."

    Rose, Eisen, and Selma were handling themselves fine. He didn't have to watch their backs. Cammy, on the other hand, needed somebody to cover her. If he and Irie didn't do a good enough job, she would have to make bigger explosions to protect herself.

    That was twice now, but he'd let that go. She was under a lot of stress.

    "Heh. Who said you weren't?" Sloane chuckled as he stood by her. Promise or no promise, Cammy was just as important.

    "Come on, it's time to turn 'em into scrap."

    This proves quite useful, and she brinsg down another seven this way.

    Five lift off and are crushed, but the other five plant themselves, digging into the ground and anchoring themselves against her power.

    As more machines- twice as many as she had dealt with on the second floor- broke through the ice that was intended to stop them, she- and the marked shards around her- faded from view once again.

    A second or so later, the shards reappeared- each where they would be the most effective against the guards without the risk of catching friends in the crossfire- and detonated, hopefully taking out their intended targets (per shard, 65 for the ice & 65 for the exploding mark).



    "What happened to you?" Iriesia asked, as she reappeared next to her. As she spoke, even more ice shards materialized and were sent towards promising targets.
    Nine more are destroyed, her ice proving lethally effective.

    How had Jacob known the code?

    How had Jacob known how to get them in?

    Seriously, a monumentally powerful random old crazy guy shows up out of nowhere and is helping them achieve their objectives because...? Well, because nothing. He wanted to help with Eden, which was legit but it somehow seemed all too... easy? Or maybe contrived? Patterns didn't just emerge out of nothing to Elewa's mind. Organisations worked like machines, people worked like people which is to say they didn't work on any kind of natural logic. There was a natural chaos to the world and this kind of thing didn't normally just happen. Maybe the guy wanted to help, maybe he didn't. Whichever it was; Elewa tended to be suspicious of those in power due to years of mistrusting the police and the government in general.

    So what was his angle?

    Why help them out?

    A powergrab? Help take down Volkov to try and assume his vacant position?

    And what of his belief in a higher power whom he represented. Shady stuff. Shady-as-fuck stuff. What if his boss decided that he should rule and have a freakin' harem or some shit? Guy was strong and, if this shit went well, would likely be seen as a hero.

    Shady man.

    Still... keep an eye on him for now.

    He waved vaguely at Gunner. Kind of made him snigger to think of a policeman in a prison cell. Fitting. Feds gettin' punished. Ha!

    "Yo Captain Flash!" he said cheerily, "S'been a while, right? Kinda ironic dat a guy like you be pulled outta a cell by guys like us,"
    Gunner opened his eyes, looked at Elewa, and groaned slightly. He managed to pull himself off Jacob and lean against the wall.

    "Nice to see you too, Mr. Elewa. Rumors of your demise seem to have been exaggerated."

    Flying through the destroyed ice sections the robots had left, Takeshi finds the second, third, fourth, and fifth levels cleared.

    The guards on six through ten all stood perfectly still, observing the battle below. These robots were tinted black and seemed more.....errie...than teh others.

    Damnit, Takeshi...

    She fades from view one more time, and sends one more volley of explosive, yet unmarked ice at the guards below. Then, she heads after him- slowly, as the surrounding environment made the task of manuevering at speed even harder than it already was.

    By the time he reached the sixth floor, she had reached him.

    If he turned, he would see her behind him, with another set of 13 marked shards floating around her.

    Had he possessed a mouth a small satisfied smile would have appeared on his face.

    Yeah, he could let the others take it from there.

    Without even turning Robert could see what was happening. He giggled. Man, that was embarrassing. Getting jailed just sucked.

    His single red eye seemingly stared off into the distance. It was fine. The thing was just for show.

    Robert's gaze carefully studied his surroundings, ready for more robots.

    The guards on six through ten all stood perfectly still, observing the battle below. These robots were tinted black and seemed more..... eerie...than the others.

    Heh, interesting.

    Round 2, then?

    His single eye glowed blue.

    OOC: I know Robert likely doesn't sense anything, but he has to try.

    Using Cammy's abilities, Skye imbues Arvandor-Atar with a coating of lava and doubles her efforts at clearing the guards. She also blasts the robots at a distance using her own biochemical energy.

    After having dispatched two, Casimir frowns as even more robots drop down. He creates an electromagnetic barrier around himself to help prevent getting wrapped up by another liquid metal robot.

    He swings his blade at a group of five before, launching himself at the group that were dug into the floor. He fired off another crescent and began slashing at them as he gets close.

    Twelve.

    Right, then. These stubborn bastards, then she will see about making her way to the upper levels to help Rivia, Robert and Takeshi. In one fluid motion, she draws her new sword , and coats it in fire before charging the five. Admittedly, wielding one large sword, as opposed to two small one, feels very strange, so she opts to take larger swings than what she is used to. Certainly helps when fighting more than one, though.

    That wasn't exactly what she meant, but...

    Oh, to hell with it!

    As he began firing at the mysterious guards, she too began to attack- sending the shards that were out at them along while summoning still more both in their midst and above them (to catch any that might fall down from above).
