    She sighs and prepares to engage any of the minds that manage to leak through.

    The moment that Max started to move, the assassin took notice of it.

    She pointed her hand at the heiress and cocked her thumb.

    "Bang."

    Unlike the ones that had been fired earlier, this one was much less powerful. The ground beneath Max exploded a split second before Max was hit in the jaw with enough force to break her bones through her armour.

    Lindstrom never saw it coming.

    The assassin is starting to do her point attack again. Ramilia prepares to dodge, but notices that she's not pointing at her. Following her line of sight, her eyes widen and fill with pure, white hot rage.

    To the much slower assassin and Casimir, it would appear that Ramilia standing stock still in shock. In reality, she has long since burst into action.

    She's on top of the assassin before she knows what hit her. A single, near invisible fist slices through the air with surgical precision en route to her prone head, while dozens of Leyline bolts streak in from all directions.

    It was over. Most of the bombs detonated, diverting the bolts from their target. The fist couldn't be stopped, though.

    Ramilia could see the expression on her face clearly. There was no mistaking it.

    The killer's look was one of absolute confidence, as if to say that it didn't matter if the attack hit her.

    Blood, bone, and brain splattered all over. The fist had demolished the vigilante's head with ease. And then one last bomb fell. The only two who could have seen it were the assassin and Mack.

    Strangely enough, it didn't hurt Ramilia at all. No, all it did was blast the assassin's headless body into the air.

    Was it some kind of failed gambit? It surely must have been. It was a directed explosion. If her intent was to catch the Skybreaker in the attack, she had missed terribly.

    In any case, it packed enough force to send its former master flying, blood streaking through the air like some horrid rain. Undoubtedly, there had been tremendous amounts of power behind the attack. After all, it was enough to send her body more than several city blocks away. The assassin glanced off the side of a high-rise, leaving behind a grotesque blood splatter on the building before dropping out of sight.

    Ramilia had won with that single punch.

    She stands still, soaked in a dead woman's blood and gray matter, and lets the fact that she just killed someone sink in.

    She just killed someone.

    To protect Max, yes. It was, is her job to make sure she remains safe.

    But she's never had to kill someone to do so.

    Her eyes cast upward and she watches the blood trickle to the ground like a rainstorm. Her shaking hand rises into her eyeline, but quickly drops when she sees the blood dripping off it as well.

    She looks over at Casimir, her eyes shaking with the realization that she just took someone's life to protect another's. "G-go check...," she says after a moment's struggle to force the words out, but that's all she can say.

    IC: Mack, having extended his senses with Zephyrkinesis to ensure nothing was waiting for him, (Even if the guards were long gone, he wasn't sure if she'd have been able to detect a robot or another sponge...) heard the combat outside and Ramilia's gripe.

    Presumably not detecting anything in the room with him, Mack returned to physical form.

    "Hate ta do it, but I'm gonna haveta make myself a bit vulnerable if I'm gonna scan this data in," he muttered.

    In physical form, he was able to scan his comm unit for the feed data they needed to broadcast, and plant it directly into the broadcasting computers. Bypassing the user interface and its attendant security, he proceeded to duplicate the files and put them in hidden folders and even split one into tiny fragments and hide it in unallocated memory, with a file to recontruct it from individual space pointers if necessary. To these, he added a number of additional video files, set to be broadcast upon recieving a particular command. Several trojans were fabricated and integrated with essential system files, and set to broadcast the information with a half-second delay. The trojans were designed to cause the broadcasting computers to accept a number of possible signals he had set up on Boss' transmitter, and would allow him to send additional information, wipe the machine and reinstall the current compromised setup, or trigger one of the preprogrammed videos Mack had designed to be slipped into the feed.

    While he did this, he paused to send a quick message to Ramilia via Zephyrkinetic sound control.

    "Look, I'm kinda busy at th' moment. But if ya get too close to one o' them bombs, I'll give ya a head's up," he whispered, "I c'n sense 'em fine, long as ya don't get too far away from the buildin'. Careful, there's one about fifty feet above ya. Also, ya might wanna call 'er on that whole one-on-one jazz. I think she's pullin' some B.S. on ya. The wanderin' accent, the whole 'we all know it now' jazz - I think that girl might have multiple personalities or somethin'. An' if they c'n use their powers at th' same time, ya might be gettin' double teamed or worse, y'know? Tryin' ta get ya ta fight 'fair' sounds like th' kinda trick I'd pull if I had that kinda thing goin'."
    The computers accept Mack's instructions, and they start broadcasting the new information Mack had imputed in. The hidden video feed Gulliver had shown them so long ago, alongside the missing persons reports, statistics, and everything else they had gathered against Volkov.

    His comm goes off, with Xaric at the other end.

    'Good job. The broadcast is going out strong.'

    Maxana reinforces the castle walls with a sheet of glass that wraps around the entire castle. She follows this up with a stream of fire, trying ti drive the gestalt back.

    Yes, maybe... maybe this was it.

    He controlled the Earth; so these worries, these indecision... he could do it.

    For the soldiers who probably thought they were protecting Eden from terrorists, words were probably meaningless. The only option left was to overwhelm them into submissiveness.

    Bringing forth her Visions, Rosemary's punch was now five punches as she swung down into the center of the gathering.
    Within moments, she's taken the remaining guards out. The area is clear of opposition.

    The fuck had hurt Max.. Had he been fast enough he would've pulled her apart. But he wasn't, and it pissed him off even more.

    So when he finally saw Ramilla's form disappear and reappear, now with her fist through the bitch's head, he smirked underneath the helmet.

    But as he watched the body explode upwards and arc away, the smirk fell away. Where the fuck did the body go?

    That was the only thing that bothered Casimir about this, there was a reason for the gore-rainbow that just happened. Had to be.

    But that really wasn't important now, was it?

    All she saw when she looked his way, was the telltale sign that he'd just teleported.

    He reappeared inside the dome she'd erected and moved over to her body,nas as he watched he saw her chest rise and fall. She's still breathing, thank god... And her armor's in tact, but she's unconscious so... He kneeled down and worked the helmet off quickly, but what he saw caused him to wince.

    The skin on the lower part of her face was bruised, her nose was also and it was bleeding. But most concerning was the fact that her chin didn't look right..

    It looked broken. Goddammotherfuckingsonofabitch.

    Unable to do anything about it, he just took her in his arms and held her. He was going to kill something before the day was over with.
