Every time the Invaders have poked their noses into human business, Hayato has responded with a flurry of activity and energy, frantically organizing everyone around him and doing everything he can to prepare for the encounter.

This time, he has no ship of his own. His army has shrunk down to its core of most loyal and skilled troops, all of whom know what to do. Zoldark has already mobilized the armies of Earth, probably with far more proficiency than Hayato himself could. Shin Getter Robo is in top condition. Hayato himself has given command of his army over to his most trusted (if NPC) lieutenant. This time he will be going as a simple warrior.

There's nothing left to do.

Hayato Jin, commander, murderer, terrorist, pilot, and hero, stands on the deck of the White Chalice, stares at the tiny point of light in the sky that is Saturn, and waits.

There is a furor of activities in the hangars as Clan Wolf mechs and Elementals (most of Ranna's Trinary, in fact) transfer onto the large dropship docked to the White Chalice. This does not appear to be the usual periodic supply run.

Speaking with any of the Clanners, warriors or not, will let you know that they are going back to Wolf City in Siberia for several days to witness a Trial of some sort. Regardless of whether you had received Ranna's invitation, they will extend it again.

A trip to Wolf City!

Several flights are scheduled, so one need not worry about missing a dropship there or back.

(1)

The flight there was uneventful, except perhaps for the fact that the dropship shot up out of atmosphere first, before descending straight down over Siberia to the city, giving one a good view of Earth and a glimpse of Wolf warships in orbit.

Wolf City itself seems quite utilitarian in its layout, the spaceport that the dropship landed in was dead center of the city, and many buildings appear similar in design. However, there is a strong and sleek style to their architecture which is more than just utilitarian and distinctive enough that it is clearly a city unlike any others on Earth. You also see a larger and more monumental structure near the spaceport – the Clan Hall.

A middle-height young man wearing Clan Wolf’s dress uniform greets the group as they leave the dropship. Unlike Ranna’s and Resnick’s rank insignia of two small red stars, his has a single large star.

“I bid you welcome to Wolf City,” he pauses at that with a smile, as if knowing how bland it was. “I am Phelan Kell, Khan of Clan Wolf. It is an honor to finally meet you. Star Captain Ranna spoke often and highly of the White Chalice.”

(2)
Lodging has been provided at the Visitor Center near the spaceport. At a glimpse, the nearest parts of the city are:

Commercial District – this is where you find the most non-Clanners doing trading. The most striking thing you notice is that there is no ‘currency exchange’, and most shops and stores accept all currency and goods for trade. Furthermore, they seem to value the goods more, as they will ask for more currency comparatively.

Residential Zones – making up most of the city, the zones appear to be designed similarly.

Feel free to explore!

(3)
The next day you are invited by Ranna to the Clan Hall. The building is strangely grand compared to the rest of the city, and there are Elementals acting as guards. She leads you to a rather comfortable room. Multiple smaller holovid screens have been setup in addition to the main screen.

It shows a large chamber with circular seating arrangement. Close to twenty people are present, and after a short speech introducing the leader of the ‘Kerensky Bloodhouse’ – each person present takes turn naming a candidate for a ‘Trial of Bloodright’. Ranna seems strangely intent as she watches the proceedings.

After each of them has nominated a name, the leader nominates a list of names, ending with “And the last nomination is Ranna, whose claim to the bloodheritage comes from Natasha Kerensky.”

In total, you count 31 nominations.

(4)
Immediately after that, the view changes to the outskirts of the city – a snow landscape dotted with some forestry. There is not much wind at the moment, so the view is clear. Icons popped up on the screen, and you can see names of the mech and pilot attached to each icon. The icons are scattered about, and you count about thirty.

The various smaller screens can be adjusted to provide different views of the area, or to track a single mech.

“Commence,” came the voice over the screen, and the mechs leap into action.

Clearly this is no simulation, and the weapons are not powered down as missiles arc over terrain, lasers burn molten trails into armor and autocannon rounds leave craters in the snow when they miss. Nobody seems to be taking sides as the free for all rages on.

What is going on here?

((OOC: the trials will be in a later post, as this is long enough. Assume that the dropships will shuttle you back and forth on request, so feel free to come along!))

The White Chalice was passing by an old town abandoned since Second Impact, and Hayato was putting it to some good. He had the few soldiers who had stayed with him since the battle against Shin Getter Dragon running through urban combat simulations in the ruins, both on foot and in mechs.

At the moment, Some of his men are doing mech sparring, but Hayato himself had his men practicing breaching maneuvers in an old hotel. They were filing out afterward a particularly clumsy attempt and Hayato was holding a stopwatch. He looked unhappy.

"Sixteen seconds. Sloppy. If you were really trying, you should be able to do it in nine. Try again, from the top."

Have comments? Want to get in on the practice yourself? Perhaps the sound of gunfire interrupting your Me Time.

[The evening after the attack of the Inspectors, Hayato could be found at Herb's bar, sitting in the darkest, quietest corner like the anti-hero he is, nursing a glass of scotch and brooding. Eventually he spoke loud enough to be heard.]

A toast: To the blindness of politicians, and the doom of millions!

[He tossed back the drink and slouched deeper in his seat. It looks like this may not have been his first drink of the evening.]

Maybe when a few more cities are burning ruins, they'll get their heads out of their asses. I'm not holding my breath though.

[Then, to the barkeeper.]

[An open communication channel has contacted the Chalice! The video, while slightly grainy, shows an older man looking through the screen. When he speaks, his voice low and calming, somewhat like what you might expect an ideal politician to sound like.]

Greetings. I am Lord Ayman. I have contacted you this day as it has come to my knowledge that your operation is harboring a particular individual of interest to me and my people. I would like to propose a peaceful resolution to our conflict.

[The video changes to a still-image that looks like it was taken from a security feed. It shows Wendell, looking over his shoulder, heading into a warehouse. Ayman's voice continues over this image for a minute before switching back to a live feed.]

This man, whom you know by the name Wendell, has stolen vital equipment from me. The machine he has been rampaging about is stolen property, and I need it back promptly. This individual is also a wanted person for a multitude of other severe crimes. I understand that you will be reluctant to hand over someone so seemingly harmless, but I warn you that Wendell is a devious liar and notorious thief.

To further entice you, there is a reward offered for his return. I look forward to doing business with you.

Directly after the pirate attack, Hayato can be found sitting on a dead one, smoking a cigarette. He's splattered in pirate blood, especially on his hands. The wounds on the pirate he's sitting on look almost like it was killed by some sort of wild animal.

[While some of our forces were out there in the city fighting Dr West and Ridley, White Chalice got infiltrated by several groups of Space Pirates! The insectoid aliens have a simple plan - steal what they can, destroy what they can't, and kill anything that resists. We're not going to let them do that, are we?

Those are mostly going to be on-foot battles, because the Pirates prefer to stay off the deck or the hangar where they would have to fight mecha. The only difference is a very sneaky group of them who stole the Baby Metroid - but those are going to get away probably even before they're discovered! The other Pirates will pull back if pushed too hard too.]

[ Casshern has been taken into White Chalice custody. While the Chalice's brig contains only three maximum security cells for high-risk prisoners, Casshern willingly entered one of them, without even needing to be restrained. While the cells were humanely furnished, they were considered "maximum security" due to the fact that they have built-in airlocks that open and blow the prisoner out if they attempt to escape or cause any damage to the ship.

Casshern also willingly submitted to a few initial tests; his AI has been scanned, though it proved to be extraordinarily complex, and matches no known signatures of other known AI producers; and Casshern turned over a blood sample. Yes - Casshern had blood.

There is a large sign at the security checkpoint: "WARNING: HIGH-RISK PRISONER - TURN OVER ALL WEAPONS AND SHARP OBJECTS HERE - ABSOLUTELY NO HOSTILE ACTIONS"

Casshern can be found seated at the edge of his bed, staring at the floor. His helmet is seated on a small table, and he hasn't touched his food. ]

They said its just a precaution until they look at my programming, but...

[ He'll say as someone enters. ]

If... If I killed Luna... if I caused the Ruin... I deserve this.

Despite helping out with the repairs on the Chalice, you may have noticed some of the clanners being more restless than usual.

[1]

On this particular day, a rather large screen had been set up together with communication consoles at an unused corner of the hangar. Several clanners had gathered – including former bondsmen. The dire wolf pups were there as well, sniffing about curiously.

Ranna spoke softly to someone over the comms, before ending it with “Aff, my Khan.”

She switched on the video feed on the screen – it was Earth orbit again, except as the screen panned out, a ship almost a mile long went by. It was followed by another ship that was almost 900m long, both carrying the insignia of Clan Wolf. Both appeared damage, though around them were aerospace fighters and dropships flying escorts. The view continued to panned, as the main bulk of the exiled Wolves appeared.

Tens of jumpships, with hundreds of dropships trailed the 2 warships. There were various different designs, and many of them were visibly unarmed.

A secondary display on the screen showed their telemetry, and their intended destination as some of the dropships began their descent into atmosphere – Siberia.

At this, most of the clanners and even some of the wolf pups were silent, watching the screen intently.

Clan Wolf had completed its own Exodus, not unlike their Great Father many centuries ago.

[2]

The aftermath of the first landings were hectic, as Ranna and her fellow clanners took in reports of their available strength.

Finally there were some breather, and Ranna stared at the clipboard in her hand, a list of ship names apparent. Her attention was focused on the final ship listed.

Mother Jocasta, Cameron-class Battlecruiser

She crossed out some words and corrected it with a marker.

Ulric Kerensky Mother Jocasta, Cameron-class Battlecruiser

She sighed softly.

Hayato's face is broadcast to everyone on the White Chalice, but it doesn't stop there. The signal is being broadcast to every ship within range of The Tower's transmitters, and then by signal repeaters and the few remaining comm satellites to all the space colonies and all the rest of the Earth. Hayato's message is available and visible to just about anyone in the Earth Sphere.

"Many of you may know me, some as a hero or savior, some as a monster or murderer. Today, that doesn't matter. You all have been tormented by the Invaders for fifteen years now as we have struggled to live on the Hell that Earth has become. The fear of the Invaders only matched, in some of you, by the fear of the Getter that drew them here.

I tell you now, there is an end in sight. The Dragon that almost awakened fifteen years ago, during the Second Impact, has returned. The Invaders want it, for Getter Rays are like food to them.

I tell you all, we cannot let them have it, for that will be the end of our species. Following this message is a set of coordinates and a date a week from today. The Dragon is there, and we must make this our last stand to stop them from claiming it. I know humanity can band together against a threat like this. I know it because we have before, and we will again. This isn't the greatest challenge humanity will ever face, but it is a big one, so for once in your lives, remember that you aren't just Federation citizens, or Zeon Soldiers, or Fuso Warriors. We are all Homo Sapiens!"

Hayato went for a normally scheduled check up with one of The Tower's doctors. The one last year listed his condition as "Unfit for active piloting duty due to numerous internal injuries."

This one, however...

Hayato angrily orders the doctor to keep the results confidential from ANYONE and to forget what he saw here before stalking off.

Later, Hayato is in the hangar glaring at Shin Getter Robo and muttering.

"What do you want from me!? You already took Musashi, you already took Michiru, wasn't that enough? Will you keep haunting me until you've taken everyone!? What do you want, blood!?"

Only the last sentence was loud enough to hear. Somehow, the inactive super robot is giving the impression that it is staring right back at Hayato.

"I am Star Captain Ranna of Clan Wolf's Delta Galaxy. I do apologize for the... inappropriate timing of the Circle of Equals, but it was done under extenuating circumstances. This is my Command Star, and it is with great honor that my warriors and I set foot on Terra."

Hayato wasn't really angry. If anything, he was in a good mood. Sure, they had failed to capture the dragon, but they had kept it out of Invader hands as well, and losses had been absurdly low. However, part of him had been building up to the idea that after today this whole thing would be over. It wasn't, and so Hayato found himself filled with impatient, nervous energy.

He was taking it out in the gym on a punching bag. Each punch was so fast it was hard to follow with the naked eye. After a while, a particularly strong punch actually tore a hole in the bag, spilling sand all over the floor. Hayato stopped, and just stared at his hand for a while, opening and closing his hand into a fist while thinking.

The good doctor can be found:

1: ...packing deliciously cool dry ice into containers. It's boiling up so much steam the hangar looks like an 80s music video. The New Kids On The Block, in denim vests and leather pants, could be just around any corner. Oenone certainly looks the part too, in her labcoat, thick gloves and safety goggles. Not that she, or the Caution: Dry Ice, do not handle bare handed sign, are easy to see amid said steam.

2: ...making something else that steams: green tea, in a massive clay kettle in the kitchen, for everyone's breakfast. It's a healthier alternative to the coffee the command staff chugs. Anyone who looks interested, she'll quietly ask if they want any and if so, if they want a monk fruit berry, stevia leaf or (shudder) sugar to sweeten it.

3: ...As usual, working on her stalkers or playing with her birds.

[If anyone is on the bridge of The Tower for some reason, they will find the normal tedium of scanning and maintenance replaced by total pandemonium. Satellite uplinks are being tested, listening posts are being called, elaborate scanning is taking place, and all the reports are agreeing: All over the world, the Invaders are on the move. Hayato's normally cool resolve is a bit cracked right now, his fingers are white from gripping the railing around the command platform.]

It's the same response as on record from fifteen years ago, sir! It's the dragon!

Dammit, how did they find it before us!? I want everyone at battle stations and The Tower prepped to go ten minutes ago! Somebody get me the Chalice on the line!

[Video]


It's back and it's close. Shin Getter Dragon has started reforming and it is absolutely VITAL that we do not let the Invaders get their tentacles on it before we do.

[A small object suddenly emerges from behind the horizon and blazes through the sky, followed by a comet-like trail. It crashes aboard the White Chalice's deck, revealing itself to be... a pair of humans clad in armor. The armor being Black Cloud and the Great Pretender, to be precise.]

I promised... to return...

1.
[Reactions for witnessing the crash come here. Devon and Laura's armors disappear almost immediately, and they lie down on the deck without strength to even get up. Exhausted, wounded and even somewhat singed they may look... but they are definitely alive and conscious.]

2.

[Some time later, once someone mercifully dragged Devon along to the medical bay - she'll be busy lying in bed and recuperating from the recent hell she went through. Still, the bandaged Shifter is good enough for visits.]

3.

[Same as #2, but for Laura. Just as Devon, she is worn out and injured, but the medical staff predicts she will make a full recovery soon enough. Although she has an eyepatch on.]

4.

[Locked to Cheng, and happening BEFORE prompt #2.

The Shifter still had some unfinished business before she could collapse. Mustering what little remains of her strength, she stumbled in a zombie-like gait to wherever her husband was at the time.

And once she makes it there, she just stands in the doorway. And stares.]

[Directly after "It's Safe Now".]

A few miles from the White Chalice, a huge shimmering portal appeared.

Nothing came out of it for over half an hour, then The Tower slowly rumbled through, along with the battered attack force sent a few days ago to deal with Dantoinne and the shifting entities. Almost every unit is heavily damaged.

Normally on the return, everyone is relieved and in high spirits, but this time is different. There's a palpable aura of despair surrounding the ship that's as obvious as the sun in the sky to anyone with even a glimmer of newtype potential.

Hayato appears on the Comm line. If anything, he looks even more impenetrable than normal.

"The mission was a success. Dantoinne is dead."

[[OOC: This is a mingling post. Feel free to threadjack at will!]]

EDIT
[That night, 1AM]

Hayato sits on the observation deck of The Tower, because it gets less traffic than the Chalice. He's been staring into the distance for a while now. Finally, he reaches into his pocket and pulls out his harmonica. After staring at it for a while longer, he starts to play a tune that some people here may have heard before.

[Since Tower left off, Devon was doing a very un-Devonlike thing: training pretty much constantly. Either training with Neo Getter, or resting after training with Neo Getter. Now is the time to rest.]

North Africa... I checked the coordinates. Of course they match up. That cave in Atlas Mountains - four years ago, I thought this is where it ends.

But it was only the beginning. And now, the real end comes. All in the same place.

...

I wasn't aware the Tower could go so fast.
