The very air tore open with a roar as an armored figure dropped from the sky out of the hole in the very fabric of reality, landing in a heap after a failing to land on it's feet, and was down and tumbling before coming to a stop in the open ground facing the rain drenched sky. the figure simply lay there, unmoving. the quick rise and fall of her chest the only thing giving away that this figure was in fact, alive.
The rain pattered against the figures armor, sliding off the visor for what seemed like hours before the figure finally moved, and sat up with a jolt, wavered a moment, and fell back on her back with a groan. a lightning flash caused the armor to light for a mere moment, the matte black that made up most of the armor lt in a silluette as the red accenting and her visor nearly floressed in the sudden light. she sat up this time, slower, and rubbing the side of her head through what made up her helmet "Oww....goddamn rifts..." she looked around slowly attempting to get her bearings, and remember what had just happened. her HUD readouts fizzled in static, unable to tell her where, or when for that matter, she was. "Come on you piece of shit! where the fuck am I?!" she smacked the side of her helmet, causing a burst of static across it before the systems stablized, though still unable to tell her where and when she was, just a continous 'searching' icon "goddammit...this planet is supposed to have a temporal beacon on it!" she looked around her, "Speaking of where...where the hell is everyone else...?" this was supposed to be the aftermath retreat point! Naras had been lost to the darkness, this was where everyone was supposed to meet up once they got the hell outta dodge! "Don't tell me I'm the only one who got out!" it wasn't possible even! there were just too many of her own soldiers she'd seen make the jump before she had! she was supposed to have been the last one out! "Where the FUCK am I?!"
no more than a ten feet from the figure, a second rift formed, much cleaner and more elegant than the Armored figures had been. it also formed along the ground, and tore just over four feet up. a black furred figure strode through, on all fours, and standing at about four foot at the shoulder. at a glance it appeared to have a feline appearance to it. a pair of large black eyes, would flash in time with the lightning as it slipped through the rift, the rift already closing around it, finally slipping shut after the creatures long black tail flipped through. it immediately dropped down on it's haunches and watched the female warrior sitting before it. another flash would show off another difference it held from a common panther. it had neither a nose, nor a mouth. it's entire body was a stark black, merging almost seemlessly with the dark landscape if not for the glow the eyes produced with the slightest light, and what appeared to be some sort of a tattoo on it's left shoulder, edged in a glowing blue. not even it's fur picked up a sheen from the downpour coming down around it. the rain itself didn't even seem to actually be touching the creature, let alone getting it wet. the creature simply sat. and watched the frustrated warrior now stalking back and forth.
"Cyrax seven?" she looked around her again, pausing momentarily in her stalking to look around her again, before shaking her head and continuing her stalking "No no...far to primitive for Cyrax seven...Belax?" she barely paused before disregarding that one, chuckling a little to herself that she had even considered it "No way...maybe --" she stopped, her eyes falling on her audience, the two just stared at each other a moment, then "Gyros! You're alive!"
It's far harder to kill a Video than you might think, Miss Tikarra the 'voice', so to speak of the beast, came with a deep sense of calm control, almost as if what happened were something expected and accounted for, not to mention that it came in her own head. the 'Beast' bowed it's head slightly before the warrior as he, the voice being -quite- male, 'spoke' You seem rather troubled Miss Tikarra?
"Gyros...if you weren't a Video..." she could 'hear' what would equate to something of a grin. she sighed with a smile "Gyros, you have a better understanding of the fabric of reality and all that fun...Where the hell are we?"
The blue glow that surrounded the 'tattoo' on the beasts shoulder faded to a white glow I'm afraid that...I have no idea at the moment. the glow returned to a deep blue there do not seem to be any other Video in this timestream to 'balance' with there seemed to be some kind of hesitation in his voice
"Is there something else Gyros...?" Gyros was one rarely distracted, and the fact that this had drawn so much attention, made her very curious
there is something about this place...this timeline, Shira THAT caught her attention. Gyros -never- addressed her by first name....ever. There is a convergance happening here, like that I have not felt in many, many years....since long before I met you Shira that feeling of his 'smiling' was back, and he 'sighed' It is good to feel purpose once more what he meant by that, he left unexplained. and if she'd learned anything in all the years he'd followed her around, it was that asking when he hadn't explained, didn't do shit. especially not as he had already started to stride off there is civilization in this direction. It woud be best if you did not leave Destinys Edge behind. You will be in need of it soon enough
"Destiny's...edge...?" she looked down at her own armor. Destiny's Edge was a swords name. she didn't carry a sword, an ARC blade, maybe. but a physical sword? "I--" a flash of lightning illuminated the blade the beast spoke of. stuck deep into the ground behind where the beast had been sitting, was the blade. a very long, very thin pair of blades, seperated by less than an inch of jagged edged steel. it stood nearly as tall as her and was still stuck in the ground. the handle a rich black similar to the felinoids fur, with spikes and catches protecting the hilt "I...have a sword?" as she looked up, the felinoid was already striding away "Hey! Dammit Gyros! wait a sec would you?!" she grabbed the sword and dashed after him
