    The process didn't take long, and when it was finished, Casimir didn't even resemble his normal self. He barely even looked human.
    His transformation nearly brings her to tears, but she bites them off and forces herself to remain calm. His new appearance makes that nearly impossible. "Wha-what have they done to you?" she whispers.

    Bobbing her in an absent-minded nod, she circles the barrier to face him. Summoning nerve and swallowing her fear, she says, "Casimir?"

Sato-san, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that he has, since the last time you saw him, become a very courageous individual- not to say that the shyness has entirely gone away."

    Okay, now it's a good time to stop messing with him.

    She sighed.

    "Sato-san," Irie said, bowing again before her, "I apologize in advance for my rude request. As improper as it is of me to interrupt the time you are now sharing with your son, especially given how long it's been since you last saw him, there's something I need to speak with him about- in private. Will you allow me- as undeserving as I am- the time to do so?"
    "Oh I couldn't stand to be away from my Taki-kun, we have so much catching up to do." She hugs his arm tighter. "Mom, I'm not a kid anymore." "Well I still think of you as one."
    Hey! No one's asking you to smell it.

    Still on his hands and knees, he looks up at Max and sees how scared she is. Unable to look at her, he drops his head quickly. "... Everything hurts."

    Oh, he can see she is afraid. Frowning more at herself, she inhaled deeply and kneels down in front of him. "It will be okay, luv. I promise I will do everything I can to make this better."

    Her mouth twitches into a smile and she shakes her head. "Not from what I've heard. We're waiting for the ship that will be landing here in a few minutes. Once it gets here, we're gonna ambush the crew and take the ship to get back to Eden. I doubt anyone knows we've invaded the Gulag yet."

    She couldn't argue with that- nor did she really want to; no matter how it came about, the fact that Takeshi and his mother were getting along- for the first time in half a decade- was a good thing, right?

    The fact she didn't know what happened was beginning to eat at her.

    Perhaps it was time for a change in scenery.

    "I understand, Sato-san," she replied. "I'll leave the two of you alone, so that you can catch up with each other."

    She bowed one last time, and then looked towards Rai.

    "I remember you saying that there was an old friend of yours here," she said to him.

    "You mean Amare? Yeah, she's probably- no, definitely- still around here somewhere."

    "Let's go find her, then- she'd probably be willing to entertain the thought of helping us out, right?"

    "Oh, she'd definitely help. Whether it's the type of help you're looking for is another story. But you'll see what I mean when we find her."

    Raishin was already moving in the direction of the prison's directory, to find out where Amare was held.

    "Keshi-kun," Iriesia said with a smirk on her face, "come find me when you have the time."

    With that said, she turned to follow Rai.

    Rivia's mind raced, trying to figure out what more she could do. Biting her lower lip, she realised how little she understood her own powers, much less his. "Cas," still focused on the circle around him, "I'm going to try to slowly drain away some of your energy. I'm not a healer, but maybe I can also numb your pain. Use this to try and control this transformation, ok?"

    He could still feel his insides rearranging themselves, and while it wasn't getting any more painful, it wasn't getting any better. Unable to do much else, he just nodded weakly. "Okay.."

    "Don't tell me I can't do anything!" she all but yells out. Unsheathing her glass sword, she uses it to show him his reflection.

    "Well, I probably don't have it right. But my guess is that Gawain's a sort of vessel to transfer power from Matron to successor. It might be a 'second rate puppet', as you said. But I figure it must have more use than a simple failsafe."

    Sloane straightened up, waiting for Lunarius' response.

    If he says it's the Sword, I'm calling bullshit.

    He's silent while he looks at his reflection in the sword. He'd turned into some sort of elemental.. He looked like a monster... But.. They had turned him into this.

    "Oh.. God." Looking up at her he said softly. You.. both... You can't be okay with this.."
