Brigadier General Johnson sat on his heavy chair facing the large window on the left side of the room; however, had someone asked him right then what the weather was he would have had to look at the window again since his mind was far from the room, rather concentrated on the conflicts at hand. He didn't turn as the door opened and someone entered the room. Absently he said, "G'morning." He didn't sound as if he noticed he was talking at all. "I have a mission for you."

He turned to face his subordinate.

(OOC: And cue for one of you to come in. Mind you not if your character is a plumber or something.)

Isa walked into town and came to a chart selling food. As he approached he noticed he had no money and he was extremely hungry. He takes a loaf of bread as the cart keeper wasn't looking just as soon as he started to run the cart keeper yelled "Thief" Isa clenched onto the bread and ran. He ran as far as he could before bumping into a guard. "Owww"

Colonel Aaron Lacey, The Short Circuit Alchemist, had enterd into the Commanders office as requested to find his superior pondering while gazing out of a window. Saying nothing he entered forth and stood at attention before his COs desk.


Absently Brigadier General Johnson said, "G'morning." He didn't sound as if he noticed he was talking at all. "I have a mission for you."



"Sir."

The Colonel replyed staring forth, eyes locked, not on anything in particular just straight forward and unwaivering. What could his assignment be this time...?

Draco
11/30/2005 4:18 AM

" GET OUT OF MY WAY" Isa slammed his hands on the ground and the guard froze instantly. Isa got up and ran. "Hmm I should be safe in here" Isa walks in to the building and to a room he slightly opens the door but only to see a few people were talking..." Hmmm they look like sate alchemist" he whispered to himself.

The Bigadier General looked into Lacey's eyes, wondering for a second, if it was wise to go ahead with the mission. "This parcel," he pointed at a particularly mundane-looking package on his desk, "is to be delivered to an Alchemist." Before his subordinate could give him a disappointed comment he added, "The reason I'm sending you is because this particular alchemist's location has become unknown as of late. His last known residence was somewhere in the northern region, particularly close to the Briggs Mountains. As you know, that is particularly close to Drachma. It could be dangerous; Drachma has never been known to take kindly to Amestrians. Therefore, if you have to enter the foreign country - which I highly doubt - it would be only prudent to do so disguised."

Leaning forward on the table B. General Johnson added, "Your annual assesment is nearing. If you succeed in delivering this package and can give a report on the state of the northern region, it would be much to your advantage then." He sat back on his chair, "You are to set out tomorrow; a team will be assembled for you. Remember, this package is of extreme urgency and should not be opened by [b]any[/b] but the recipient."

The Brigadier General was about to dismiss Colonel Lacey when abruptly their privacy was invaded. Suddenly, a strange man had entered the room. Johnson stood up like an uncoiled spring and yelled, "Security!"

Draco
12/02/2005 4:40 AM

Isa jumped in panic. He was found. He slammed his hands on the ground and froze the door shut then without any delay he ran further in to the building. "Man this building is so big how do I get out of here."

Aaron
12/02/2005 1:38 PM

The Colonel nodded in agreement and understanding with the General. Well at least this will get him out of his office for a while, though what the package contained was a puzzle. He would just have to be careful with it than.



"Security"


Almost immediately after the door behind them slammed shut and became frozen shut. Apparently some alchemist had found their way in to some place they were not supposed to. Bringing his finger tips together the opposite polarities of the magnets began to force his hands apart.

~Now than.~ Aaron thought.


Isa, the young man that was behind the door, felt his self running though he was running on air. He was running in place IN THE AIR! As well the hair on his body seeminly stood on end, and he would notice that two guards who had come were caught up hanging mid air just as he. Aaron continued keeping his hands pressed to everything outside in the hall above ground.

" Sir, I have him caught. Anyone who is in the hallway is suspended in the air."

The_Bard
12/03/2005 3:24 AM

(OOC: Draco, remember normal alchemists can't use alchemy without alchemy circles.)


"Sir, I have him caught. Anyone who is in the hallway is suspended in the air."

"Well done," said Brigadier General Johnson absently as he walked to the door and gave it a good kick, resulting into nothing more than creaking ice. Two kicks later the doors slammed open revealing a young man floating directly in front and two guards attempting to "swim" their way throught the air towards him. "You can put him down now," explained the General as he drew his gun and pointed it at Isa. "He should realize it won't be very wise to try to escape."

Draco
12/03/2005 7:02 PM


(OOC: Draco, remember normal alchemists can't use alchemy without alchemy circles.)

(OOC: Also remember Isa has alchemy circles on his plams and they alow him to use some of his Ice Alchemy powers with out the aid of circles... sorry I should have put that in Isa's pro.)

Isa just staoped moving around he knew he was traped. "Let me go" He cried. He place his hands out tword the one that had the gun pointed at him and froze it. Then he moved um to the one that was holding him and started to close his eyes and a circle slowly apered around him. "Let me go now or else!"

Aaron
12/04/2005 10:46 AM


"Let me go now or else!"


Noting what the captured intrduer did to the Generals gun, Col. Lacey took this threat to be serious and thus needing to be handled with. The boy still could not move anywhere but in place, though he was not restricted in his alchemy use as was apparent. Focusing, his eyes locked in that steady gaze, Aaron starts to outfold his hands so that they form a 'V' with the point near his chest. The open end was directed at the boy caught mid-air.

With a sudden twist of his wrist a strong force pushed Isa to one side, and continued pushing him spinning Isa in place. Just as quick as Isa was levitated was as quick as he was spinning with such great force inbetween the opposite walls of the corridor. This was done, exerting G-forces upon the boys body, until it appeared that he would no longer be a threat.

Draco
12/04/2005 3:44 PM

Isa quickly put his attention to the walls and quickly froze them, after that he froze the ground and child the air around them. He knew that if he made the air chilly they would give up soon or risk losing massive energy then freezing. Isa, himself, could survive in the chilly air a lot better then the others due to his childhood and his alchemy powers. "Go for it keep it up."

(OOC: Oooh my powergame senses are tingling. Draco, calm your characater down; there's no way he can get out of a military building just by walking off.)

Brigadier General Johnson tried to shoot his gun but the trigger seemed to be stuck. He tried throwing it away but it was stuck to his hand. Ice. Johnson reached for his other gun with his free hand but kept it in his pocket knowing that by doing so he was unabling the alchemist from freezing that one too. Suddenly the hall literally froze and the air became as frigid as ice.

"Sir!" yelled the B. General. "You have invaded a government building and attacked military personnel. Surrender or you [b]will[/b] be killed!" Then, turning his head a little, the General lowered his voice - keeping his tone just as demanding - and ordered Lacey to, "Put him down."

Archer walked down the hall thinking, [i]I wonder if I'll ever get a mission[\i]. He sighed, opened his eyes, saw he was just moving his legs but wasn't getting anywhere and saw people in [b]mid-air[/b].

Archer knew it was the Short Circut Alchemist's doing so he yelled, "Hey put everyone down especially me." He saw everyone was looking somewhere else and ignoring him. He looked and saw the Short Circut Alchemist and Brigadier General Johnson looking at Isa. Archer just kept watching and waiting for anyone to make a move.

He tried getting the Brigadier General's attention but then he gave up. He looked at Isa and said, "Who are you? You're not a miltary."

Draco

(OCC: Yes I know he can't make it out a live but hes at least got to try!)

Isa put down his hands and the air started to worm up a little. Isa just floated there with is head down and a slumped back. Part of his shirt was ripped in the back, due to flying around, reviling part of his tribes tattoo. "My name is Isa Ranu. I am an orphan if you need to know. I can in here for protection..... I am sorry about all of this."

The_Bard
12/05/2005 5:33 PM


"My name is Isa Ranu. I am an orphan if you need to know. I came in here for protection... I am sorry about all of this."

Brigade General Johnson nodded in understanding. Quite abruptly everything had gone normal: gravity had returned, and the room temperature leveled a little. "You're dismissed," he told Col. Lacey. "You two," he pointed at the two confused guards sitting on the floor, "escort him;" he motioned for Isa to follow him. Then, recognizing a voice, the Brigadier General turned around to face Archer. "Please follow me Major Archer," he ordered going back into his office...

[i][b]Meanwhile, elsewhere...[/b][/i]

The door opened to reveal a woman with short brownish hair. The soldier who had just knocked took off his hat and bowed, "Ms. Glacier."

"Oh please," she waved her hand in dismissal, "don't do that." The man straightened with a smile. "Come in," she opened the door further and he accepted the offer with a, "Thank you."

"So is it still Lieutanant Hunter?" she asked looking at his military uniform.

"No, I'm Captain Hunter now. Having a father in the army," he looked away, "does help. But anyways, that's not what I came here for." This time it was her turn to look away; a serene look overcame her face. "Ms. Hughes," he softened his tone to a whisper, "I know it must be hard for you, but after all, it's her choice."

Suddenly the conversation was interrupted as a young girl walked into the room...

"You two," he pointed at the two confused guards sitting on the floor, "escort him;" he motioned for Isa to follow him. Then, recognizing a voice, the Brigadier General turned around to face Archer. "Please follow me Major Archer,"


Archer walked behind Johnson, before Johnson got to his desk Archer said "Hey I got some questions, first of all who was that "Isa", second of all why was the Short Circut Alchemist making people go up into the air, and lastly are you ever gonna give me a mission?" Brigade General Johnson sighed Archer waited for a response, and he started thinking [i] man I need to find my brother I wish i could remember his face.[/i]

Draco
12/06/2005 4:16 AM

Isa followed the two guys that were escorting him. He lifts up his palms and looked at them. Then he put them down and went to a blank stair as he walked along. He got so far up the he just fell due to all the spinning.

As soon as Elysia heard someone knock on the door of her house, she immediately got up to see who it was. As she walked into the room she saw her mom talking to a man in a military suit. Now, this could be either really good news or very bad news. "What's going on?" she asked. She noticed her mom had a rather worried expression. The militair turned towards her, smiled, and said, "Hello Elysia." Elysia felt that the other two people knew very well what was going on but did not know how to tell her. She looked at the militair and she asked again firmly "What is going on?"

The_Bard
12/11/2005 8:23 PM


"What is going on?"

A look of pain and suffering came over Glacier Hughes, but she managed to hide it well. Captain Hunter put on a serious face and walked towards Elysia. "I understand you have been practicing alchemy." Without waiting for an answer Cap. Hunter went on, "As you may know the military's numbers of state alchemist have been steadily dropping since the new government took over. You have received an invitation to join us." He pulled a thick letter out of his blue jacket and stretched it to her. It was a key, a weapon, a curse.

Captain Hunter put his blue hat back on. "If your interested, you have been offered a place in a mission. Were you to go along as a State Alchemist in probation and succeed, you would immediately achieve the State Alchemist status." He waited for her reaction.

[b][i]In the Central City Military Headquarters...[/b][/i]

Brigade General Johnson ignored Archer's questions, his mind buried with ideas. As Isa fainted, General Johnson simply frowned, checked his pulse and motioned for the two guards to take him. Up in Johnson's office, Isa was placed on a chair and Archer took the other.

"Mayor Archer, you are now under the command of Colonel Lacey and will accompany in his mission. Please contact him as soon as possible," declared the Brigade General. He then walked up to Isa and moved his shoulder in an attempt to awake him.

Draco
12/12/2005 4:46 AM

Isa woke slowly, shifting his head. Then he put a hand on his head. "Owww.... my head." He looked around the room the to the person sitting in front of him. "He...llo"

Aaron
12/12/2005 2:57 PM


"You're dismissed,"


Lacey was commanded by the General. This little incident was a waste of his time anyways. The Short Circuit walked off leaving the others to clean up what was left of the ordeal. Aaron had taken the package from the Generals office before leaving him with the major and the fainted intruder.


Making his way back to his own office Col. Lacey wonders over what could be so imporant with its delivery. Even with his high levels of clearance, the Colonel still did not have access to the knowledge of this mission. Setting the package upon his desk Lacey sits in his chair and draws up maps of the intended destination area upon his computer.

The_Bard
12/18/2005 1:49 PM

Brigade General Johnson watched a confused Isa as he woke up. He forced a smile attempting to seem friendly, "Normally an intruder to Military Headquarters would be behind bars before he could say 'Owww, my head'." He paused for a second, "But fortunately for you, I have plans for you. You showed great skill in alchemy back there. However you have commited quite a crime, sir; I can't simply let you go."

He waited for his words to sink and make the young alchemist realize his situation. "I have a deal for you. If you assist a military mission, I'll forget all about this misunderstanding." Of course this was all under military regulations (after some abundant paperwork) but making the kid feel like it was a favor made him easier to manipulate. "What do you say?"

Draco
12/19/2005 4:28 AM

Isa looked down, thinking about the question that was put in front of him, then he slowly got up, turned around, then slightly turned his head towards Brigade General Johnson. "I Isa will take your offer."

anime_fan3
12/20/2005 10:06 PM


"Mayor Archer, you are now under the command of Colonel Lacey and will accompany in his mission. Please contact him as soon as possible," declared the Brigade General.


Archer simply walked out into the hall, caught up with Lacey, and asked, "Hey Lacey, I'm Archer, the "Tree Alchemist". The Brigade General Johnson has put me under [i]your[/i] command, can you tell me what sort of mission we're going to do, and when?" he had so many questions and ideas that were not being answered, it was hard to ask just three questions. Waiting for an answer, Archer wondered if the mission was really easy one that ANYONE could do.

Aaron
12/21/2005 7:29 AM

In his office Lacey looks across his desk to the major before him. This was going to be a long trip, he just knew it.


" Recon., we have a man who has been MIA or AWOL for some time now. Due to the area of his last know location this mission is highly sensitive. We will be leaving once the rest of the team has been briefed."

Lacey looks at the maps again going over in his mind who else the General would throw at him.

" You are dismissed for now, Major. Oh, and if I were you, I would check up on the foilage in Drachma."


The thought had just came to mind, the General had not given him the name of the alchemist to whom the package was to be delivered. Either that was potential oversite, or the comotion outside the office had distracted the generals mind from such details. A mental note would have to be made to inquire the subject later.

12/22/2005 10:45 AM


"If your interested, you have been offered a place in a mission. Were you to go along as a State Alchemist in probation and succeed, you would immediately achieve the State Alchemist status." He waited for her reaction.


Elysia was very surprised. She wasn't sure what to say. Her mind told her to take the offer but her heart knew what her mom would say about this. Elysia looked at her mom who was smiling back at her. Elysia knew her mom must have been forcing the smile. She was so confused but this was her chance to become a great alchemist. She had to take it. "I... I accept!" Elysia said with a reassureing smile towards her mom. "Is all the information about the mission in this card?" she asked.

The_Bard
12/27/2005 1:20 PM


"Is all the information about the mission in this card?" she asked.


"All I can give, yes," said Captain Hunter with a wide smile. Again he took off his hat and holding it to his chest bowed. "We'll be awaiting you Ms. Elysia." With that he was gone.

[i][b]The following day...[/i][/b]

Brigade General Johnson stood in front of the gates to the military headquarters keeping his long blue coat close to him. The morning was extremely foggy, wet and cold. He checked his pocket watch; they would be here anytime now. He would tell them the last details to their mission and see them off. He sighed in knowledge that he was putting these people in danger. Through the grey mist, he recognized a silhoutte walking towards him.

Kitiara_dragonlord

Through the grey mist, he recognized a silhoutte walking towards him.


As Elysia was walking towards the military headquarters she imagined her mom crying and praying for her to come back safely. She knew this was her best chance and she was going to take it. She could now see the Brigade General Johnson 's tall figure. She knew he was waiting for everybody else. Elysia wondered who else was going but she knew they would come soon. Her bag was packed with provisions that her mom had put in. She finally got close enough to the Brigade General and introduced herself. "I'm Elysia Hughes, nice to meet you." She said this as she held out her hand with a smile.

anime_fan3
12/27/2005 4:54 PM

Archer walked down into the fog, and noticed now two figures standing in front of him, he looked at his watch and kept walking. When he got close enough to see the people perfectly he looked at Elysa and gave a smile towards her. Archer said, "I'm ready for the mission Brigade General Johnson, but where is everyone else. I mean just me, her, and magnetboy?" he noticed a figure walking towards them. He thought it was Lacey so he moved bit by bit behind Elysa.

Aaron
12/28/2005 6:59 AM

Colonel Lacey approaches from behind the General. Lacey says nothing, merely looks at the ones gathered.

~This could not be the crew hes giving me!~

The alchemist thought as he saw that no one else had yet arrived.

~What is the General planning?~

Draco
01/07/2006 12:32 AM

Isa looked around, then to the people he was with, then to his hands. As he walked along questions came through his head rapidly. ~Why have they chosen me of all people I mean I tried to freeze them all~ As Isa was think and right before he snapped back to reality he ran himself right into a wall. "FRICKIN A" Isa yelled.

Dolonal Greitzville got up out of his seat on the bench near the close by fountain in the center of the city. He walked around with no destination in mind. He just kept walking and walking. People staring at his somewhat hidden face and his thought of as foreign clothing. As he heads by the Central Military Operations Area he starts to think to himself.

~Dammit I have been gone for almost ten freakin' years now and I still have done nothing. The only place I know of any sign of Ishbalin refugees is in the lower hills of Siloute. But there is no way there. The only way is to head on the train to the nearest town to Drachma, sneak across the border, then find some kind of transportation later.
Whatever, I guess I will have to think this out before I go.~

But before he knew it he was talking to himself and he ended up walking straight into two guards.
