"Ah, but would there be any semblance of them in history. You think they'd let that knowledge survive to reach the ears of those not involved...?"

"But then...how would I even know...? Unless... someone fucked up..."

"What would you say to that...?"

And she watched for any other reactions as she spoke the boy's name... with a "-kun ♥️"

Now her facial expression faltered. "Diamond?" she said, with a look belying a mix of confusion and worry. Almost on cue, Nero tugged on her shirt, revealing a large yellow jewel from his pocket as she turned to him.

Amari could only behold the gem in silence, her worry growing increasingly apparent with her frown. Kigo picked up on this, but knew he wasn't going to get any answers just waiting for her to speak up. "Yeah," Kigo affirmed with Nero's action. "That."

“I was going to ask about this myself, actually,” Nero joined in.

Amari continued staring at it in disbelief, "That..." she said, her dismay slowly showing itself, "Is most likely a Chaos Emerald..." She brought her hand forward, as if to pick up the Emerald. To her better judgment, however, she quickly drew it back.

His eyes narrowed, to bring up the topic she did was easy to chalk off as a coincidence, but this, this was something else. Only a few knew of his name, his real name, and who knew it were hidden from the public eyes. Anyone else would have to be another like him, someone else who was born from the same process. 

"The Spartain's training were considered some of the harshest ever known. Starting at an age no older than when they can first walk, they were forged to become the guardians of their land. Not just the men, even the woman were expected to be strong. And while the strong survived, the weak would more often than not die." Though his body still allied him, he still managed to lean forward, trying to get a better look at just who was in front of him. 

"Or, they'd try to run away."

The woman stood for a moment making no further sound. Just standing there and watching.

Until finally...

"There's nothing to hide about it. No one is listening, I made sure of it. You know full well I don't mean those Spartans," she took a step. The lighting on her face changed, only revealing a sliver of her face. Namely, her bright red eyes, "I mean the one that spawned you."

"Why have they allied with the E.L.A? If you yourself even know..."

A familiar feeling shot down the prisoner's spine. The same intent or feeling he felt before when something had surprised him that day... He never got to see it's real face, only the projection he imagined in his subconscious.

So it is a Chaos Emerald... Kigo thought to himself, having confirmed his own suspicions. Watching her pull away from it only furthered his own wariness of the jewel, but also piqued his inquiry. What did she know about this artifact? Deciding that he needed to know, he spoke up.

"I've heard stories about Chaos Emeralds in my travels," he began, "Artifacts that, when wielded by a select few, could bring out an immeasurable amount of power in them."

Amari still did not speak. Kigo took this pause as a concession for him to continue. "Throughout legends, some speak that this power brought about miracles..." Kigo hesitated; the jewel glimmered in Nero's hands, its gleam strong enough to attract any hungry eyes. "...Or catastrophes."

Nero, unable to keep his curiosity down, spoke up. "Chaos? You mean like..." His question was cut off by Amari, who assured him. "Yes, actually. I was about to get to that.” Kigo raised an eyebrow, but had no other reply.

Amari gave an exasperated sigh as she turned back to Kigo. "Those stories would be...correct, but they are more than just artifacts,” she began to explain. Pausing, she quickly asked, “Tell me, how much do you know about Ki?"

He tightened his fist as the feeling continued to grow, glared the woman back as best he could. She wanted something out of him, but she would have to do more than this to get it out of him. Much more than what most would imagine, and he had a feeling she knew this. Closing his eyes, he took in a deep breath, calming himself before he finally spoke. 

"The Spartains also had an oath, one they lived, and died by." he said. 


"I swear myself into the service of the state of Sparta and its Kingship. I will uphold the standards of the state, I will execute my commands to the best of my ability, and I will not desert my brothers. My life belongs to Sparta, subject to its laws, here I shall remain." 


And then finally, he went silent.

Now she was speaking his language. Kigo cleared his throat, speaking as clearly as possible, "Ki is the driving life force of all living beings. It is acknowledged across all branches of religion and belief, but its basic definition remains the same," Kigo briefly paused, then finished, "It is the energy which resides in all of us, and links us to the spiritual realm."

There was a moment of silence. "Uh... at least that's what I've come to see it as," Kigo concluded, though with his conclusion came his own question. "But what does that have to do with this?" Kigo asked, pointing to the Emerald in Nero's hand.

Now the ball rolled back into her side of the court. She visibly relaxed, ready to explain the subject. Giving small lectures was something she was used to for Nero, and a comfort against her growing anxiety. "To be blunt, there is another energy that is similar to Ki, so aptly named: Chaos Energy. This energy flows through the world and the life in it to a much, much lesser extent than Ki." she stopped a moment, then picked back up, "But there are… larger stores of it. The Emeralds, to be exact,” she said, gesturing to the Emerald Nero now held. Kigo stared at her in silent awe. She continued, "The Emeralds generate a nearly infinite amount of Chaos Energy, and there are seven of them.”

Kigo looked at the Emerald again. He looked like he had more questions to ask, but remained silent, waiting for Amari to continue explaining. "It's important to note that despite the relatively small amount of it in the world compared to Ki, for those who can harness Chaos Energy, it serves effectively the same purpose. but it's… different, in some ways.”

"Different?" Kigo finally interrupted, his full attention on her words, "Different how?" Amari replied, almost eagerly this time, "For starters, it can be used to power machines if they are built for it,” Kigo glanced at Nero as Amari said this, but she kept on regardless, “Even more, it appears to react to the emotions of those who wield it. Sometimes in... potent, if not unpredictable ways...”

The feeling subsided. Xalia sighed and softened as she backed up.

"There is neither state nor king when it comes to that organization. The only standard is to be the embodiment of the ultimate evolution of man, if you aren't that you can never execute the command as you've already failed. There is none to desert, as your brothers are your very enemy. Your life belongs to the organization you've failed by being here, captured like an animal. As such you've already become an oath breaker, and thus you remain with the knowledge of your failure."

"But, you probably don't perceive it that way. And I know you probably won't give me much more unless I take more drastic measures."

She turned and took a step away...

"If you'll excuse me, I think I'll take my leave."

She slowly took another step, waiting for any other response.

"You say I've failed, and yet, what was my mission?" 

Just as Xalia's foot touched the floor, she paused.

"I was merely responding to that fake oath that has nothing to do with you nor that organization..."

"Well," she continued, reaching the door. She opened it and stepped out, "I'll see you later," for that moment, the prisoner saw the woman's face. Not that he recognized it much, "...my annoying little nephew..."

And the door closed.

Kigo briefly interjected again, "Such as...?” Amari could only shake her head in response. "I'm afraid I don't know much more beyond that," she said, her worry slowly returning. Kigo nodded. Amari looked up at Kigo again, "But in a nutshell, that's the short and dummied down version of it."

Now it was Kigo's turn to laugh. "You calling me a dummy?" Amari giggled at him, who just shrugged sheepishly. "Not at all..." Amari trailed off, as if she meant to say something more.

Kigo stared at her dumbly for a while, until he realized he had completely forgotten to introduce himself. "Kigo, Kigo Hu." He finished her sentence, perhaps a little louder than he had intended. She nodded with a simple "Ah, Kigo, then."

"Well, it's been pleasant meeting you, Kigo, but Nero's about to need some fine-tuning," Amari said. Kigo nodded. "Indeed. Thanks for answering my questions, Dr. Verbatim." She waved it off, "Not a problem. Just ask away." Kigo walked himself out leaving Amari to her work. "Well, he was nice," she said to Nero. The Android agreed. "Indeed. He's quite skilled. Without him we might not have completed our mission so handily." Although Amari smiled at his report, she tucked away the unease she'd been feeling ever since the Emerald was brought up...

Pondering on what Dr. Verbatim had told him, Kigo now had to wonder. How many of these Emeralds had the E.L.A. already found? The way that the good doctor reacted to the topic also made him uneasy. It was clear that whatever lay beyond her knowledge of them was... less than pleasant.

Lusk bathed in his own defeat.

Most of his body was submerged in his room’s water, as he gazed up in thought. A ways below him, a heavy metallic bat which resembled his signature horn had sunk to the bottom. He’d spent the past few hours training, and after his previous successful attempt at perfecting a new song, he’d begun a new sort of physical training.

Using the metallic bat he had specially made, he used rocks set to descend from the rooms waterfall as target practice, and the bat’s weight as the means to push his strength and control. Each rock was large enough that it would take a powerful and precise shot to shatter.

But each time he had jumped up to reach a falling rock, which he often struggled with due to the bat’s weight, he had failed in destroying it. Be it his aim and timing leading to a miss, sometimes nicking it, or his own strength failing to swing the capable metal through the air and stone.

He’d failed, completely. Now his body lay on the waters surface, sore and without progress. There wasn’t any use rising back to repeat the process, his limits were clear.

And being reminded of his limits was only familiar to him…and filled him not with a particular distaste or bitter feeling, but with questions.

Could anyone else in RISING handle this much? He was rather confident they could…

Would he be able to push past this limit? He wasn’t so sure…

Should he still be trying?

Hearing someone approach, Lusk kicked his feet through the water and drifted quickly towards the shore. As he reached it Fluut was stepping in.

“Going for a swim?” Fluut asked simply, Lusk gave a slight nod.

“Their effort in approximating our homes oceans has turned out well…” Lusk stated, slipping out of his wet pants and shirt and heading over to grab a spare.

“Quite.” Fluut agreed, “It’s nostalgic.”

As Lusk slipped on his new clothes, he pondered a certain detail. “Though…their is one glaring difference….”

Fluut grinned a bit, knowing of his friends complaint.

“The taste.”

Both Namekians gave in to a bit of rather human laughter, before gathering for Fluuts purpose here. Revealing a folder and handing it to Lusk, Fluut spoke up again, “The doctor and her partners have begun to worry.”

Lusk flipped through the beginning pages carefully attempting to read the English text. With some time, he concluded, “Over resources, then?”

“Indeed. I had these read to me, of course.” Fluut admitted….he couldn’t actually read. “All technology they have no time to “crack”.”

Lusk frowned, “So they have the technology, but can’t put a crack in it?”

“It’s apparently an expression.” Fluut revealed, looking sideways nervously, “I…learned the hard way…”

Verbatim’s annoyed rant still rang in his ears from his successful attempt to “crack” her only spare Power Resistor during her explanation.

“They simply have no time to figure out how the technology is built, and instead need it gathered for them.”

“Gathered? From where?” Lusk questioned, before flipping to the page with that very information.

“The E.L.A.” Fluut answered, as Lusk looked at some form of map, “One of the hostages freed in our last mission was able to give the location of one of their factories.”

“So a retrieval mission…” Lusk considered, “The two of us were assigned this then?”

“I was given the option to pick my partner.” Fluut replied, as Lusk handed the filled folder back to him.

“I see…” Lusk nodded, “The others must be weary, having just been off on their own missions--”

“You were my first choice.” Fluut interrupted, looking at the folders contents, only to confuse himself. Lusk was taken aback slightly. Fluut closed the folder quickly, wishing he hadn’t bothered.

“You’re the first I’d choose to have my back.” Fluut said, before feeling the need to explain, “Ah, it’s another expression--”

“Yes…” Lusk said, beginning to smile, “I think I understand it…”
