Preseason - Episode 1: The Train Job

RE: Preseason - Episode 1: The Train Job
Doran loved riding. He loved adventure and he loved danger. They made him feel alive. On his home of Arboria he loved the feel of the chase and the hunt. The wild animals there, the danger that could be found if one looked but it was different there where he felt in tune with everything around him. Here the danger was even more...acute and he loved it. He wasn't connected to the trees here or the animals or even really other Aurin and that seemed to heighten everything. Only his instincts and skill could help him anticipate the next move.

So he found himself riding on a hover bike with a group he had just joined being called prospect, spec, etc...and he loved it. Being a prospect wasn't easy. This was the process to prove, to belong and that took work and the ability to deal with whatever crap was handed your way. Eventually it would pay off when he received that patch and he would not stop until that patch was his and these men and women called him brother. Perhaps that was from Arboria too. There where you felt like you were connected, where you belonged. Doran wasn't sure...all he knew was this felt right. He laughed as a Dommie aimed at him through a window and took a shot. It missed as Doran swerved his bike to avoid it.

His job was simple. As the prospect he was being entrusted with simply covering the others. He was too new to be trusted with anything else and his ability was in question. So he moved back and forth between the troop car and the other cars taking shots when he had them. The Dommie that had just shot at him was cocky and didn't take cover as he tried to get another shot. He never got it as Doran fired his own pistol, having moved closer to the car to ensure better accuracy. The man screamed and fell back. Doran wasn't sure if he was dead. Then the automatic "cannon" on the train fired again. He had forgot to pay attention and a series of shots tore up the ground near his bike. He lurched and almost lost it, but holstering his gun and grabbing the handlebars in a quick series of motions he was able to get it back under control, but he had moved a bit away from the train. He turned his bike to move back this time watching the "cannon" more closely. Someone needed to take that thing out, but his orders had been clear.

He warred between what he thought he should do and what he had been told to do. He knew that being a prospect was about following the orders, proving you could be trusted, but didn't they also want to see what he could do? See if he could show initiative and think outside the box? What if he ported onto the train and one of the brothers or sister got hit because he was no longer watching for.. the cannon fired again. This time he was ready and easily avoided the spray of projectiles, but to avoid any further fire he shot to the right and headed towards the car just before the car they had marked. As he neared he noted what appeared to be two dommie soldiers heading towards the marked car. He began firing into the windows to try and stop them or slow them.

"Hey, uh...there are dommies heading towards the mark from the next car forward. Trying to slow them, but I can't get a good enough shot to stop them." he yelled over the comm to compensate for the noise filling his ears.

He fired some more shots, but they had taken cover and he could no longer see them. Neither of them came to the window to fire back so he assumed they were focused on the mark car. He pulled back out away from the train to try and get visibility on any other targets.

"Balls." he cursed as he neared the train again. Suddenly he heard an explosion behind him and metal fragments rained down, but he was close enough to the train to be protected. He pulled back out briefly and saw the smoking ruin of the turret. He smiled. The troop car had to be in disarray. He had a moment. He didn't know if anyone was in the marked car, but he knew they'd be surprised to see the soldiers so he moved close to that train car and activated his hookups. A couple of tipped cables shot out towards the train and connected his bike to it. The bike lurched just a bit, but he had been matching the speed and so it stayed. He stood on his bike and a golden gateway appeared in front of him. He jumped through the portal and dropped into the train car just as the soldiers were going through the door and reaching for the door of the marked car. Doran took careful aim and blasted one and then the second soldier through the back just as the first opened the door and fell through dead. Doran walked over the bodies and out the door, stopping momentarily to salute the two in the marked car as he saw them. Then using agility born of being bred on a tree world and his more recent training, Doran used the side of the train car to move back to his bike. He didn't want to try and port to it because he wasn't sure he was that accurate quite yet. He hit a button and the cables blew apart. He slid away from the train and surveyed the current state of things, trying to cover his brothers. He fired off a few quick shots at some dommie soliders that were on the roof of one car, trying to distract them from the other member that was up there.

"Balls." he muttered again not sure what else he could do to help at this point.

The trooper car was shocked heavily as Cathal glanced over and took Kale's hand. The large granok caused his hoverbike to shake and nearly unbalance itself and yet he kept on trucking. Cathal was a decent rider and had been using the machines for years. As he made sure Kale was situated he watched as a voice came over the radio as they moved in to take the car. His eyes were then up and back at the troop car as some orders were bellowed out from somewhere in the train. Then another rumbling sound appeared over the horizon, as a dustcloud was heading toward them.

"Hey sweeties, get your arses movement we have problems," he said as he pulled out a pair of binocoulars and surveyed the horizon. Just as he did the man the Devil had ordered for an RPG had pulled it out and fired. A large explosion rocked between Cathal and the train as the man pulled away from the the train and got a better look at the oncoming dust cloud.

"Fuck," he said as he noted that colors flying on the incoming dustcloud, "We've got a full Dominion patrol inbound, get that Wagon loaded and lets get out of here. I do not need us fighting fucking Sovereign roughriders! And someone kill that RPG!"

He then looked around for Kale's bike and turned in that direction, asking the granok, "Find me your ride so you can be useful."

Sydira sat up rubbing her head, she looked to Carna and smirked. Standing up she pointed to the side. "Cut us an openin' dat wagon is out t'ere waitin'" she said getting smaller crates ready. Sydira organized the goods from small to big so that she knew everything was in view.

Carna nods at Sydira, "With pleasure, my dear."

She stands in front of the train car wall and looks at it. She eases breath and moves her hands as before with Devil Delmonte. A series of sharp blades appear in front of Carna. Carna looks at the blades then the wall, and with a fluid movement of her wrists the swords slam through the side of the train car. Dylan would see the phantasmal blue glow of the edges.

Keeping her concentration up she brings her hands together and moves them in a circular pattern. There is a sound grinding metal on metal as Carna begins to cut a hole in the side of the train car.

As Shiori moved through the train, he kept his steps quiet as he avoided patrols. He was a young man in his early twenties, with a muscled but lean build for speed and long black hair kept in a low ponytail. His ice-blue eyes weaving through the darkness as he could see fairly clearly. Wearing a long leather coat, armored gloves and boots, with cloth pants and a long-brimmed hat he keeps all his gadgets stored, he kept himself quiet as he moved into the car he was after. 'This stuff is gonna fetch a nice price. I could use it to help her out.' He thought before moving to take a box; however, that's when he noticed the one cutting a hole in the ship. 'And this just got complicated.'

Sydira finished organizing the supplies ready for transport when she noticed Shiori. She flipped a pistol from a holster and aimed it at him. "Dis one gonna give ya tree secon's to freeze. Less ya wan' da buisness end of dis gun," she growled at him, her eyes narrowing. The pistol pulsating a light blue. Her second pistol still holstered.

RE: Preseason - Episode 1: The Train Job
Carna was nearing the end of the cutting when she hears Sydira and glances at her, then looks where she was looking. Oh Great... Carna thinks.

She then focuses back on the area she is cutting and speeds up. Just a few more centimeters. "And... There!" Her phantasmal swords finish their cuts. Luckily it doesn't fall right away. She should be focused on the stranger int he car, but things were being drawn out. She walks to her cut and pushes her fingers through and begins to pull inward so the wall would wall into the car and no harm the wagon.

Shiori blinks and looks at the pistol aimed at his face. "Well, as much as I'd love to get acquainted with the shiny lass you're holding there, I believe you need be acquainted with Mr. Creeper." He points behind them, where a small knee-high robot is standing, looking like a four legged bush monster. It has a little creepy grin and was making a hissing sound. "By getting acquainted I mean either of you make a move to harm me, and Mr. Creeper makes this entire car disappear!" He chirps happily. "So what's it gonna be, bye-bye to us all or we talk this out eh?"

RE: Preseason - Episode 1: The Train Job
The metal wall comes crashing down and lands with a thud inwardly as Carna manages to pull it in just as Shiori finishes speaking then she looks at him.

"Well we are here for supplies, and we're taking them. Our ride is right there," she gestures out of the train car, "And we gotta hurry cause apparently things are about to get much worse on account of a Dominon patrol in bound. Or at least from the update the little thing in my ear just told me. So either we can have this stand off and end ugly for everyone, or if you don't try to hurt us, we don't have a reason to hurt you, and we can get off this metal monstrosity with what we all want, capiche?" Carna says and folds her arms staring at Shiori.

He just blinks at Carna and shrugs before standing and making a whistling sound. At that, the little mechanical bush monster walks over and climbs onto his arm and latches to his shoulder. "I just want enough to help my friend out. I get that I'll help you move. Got it?" He rests his palms on the hilts of his twin pistols. Not enough to indicate he was drawing them, but close enough that he could do it quickly.
