[Check OOC it's not tooo late to join]

The alley was dark. Up ahead Viktor could see the outline of the man he was tailing. The large man was walking along stumbling occasionally as if drunk. Suddenly the man slumped against the wall and slid to the ground. Viktor drew his pistol and advanced slowly. This guy was known to be a con-artist so he could be faking it.

As Viktor got closer he noted that the man's chest wasn't moving. Next he saw a puddle of blood under the guy. He walked over and flipped the body over. There was a neat hole in the guy's chest directly over his heart. How had that happened? Vik had been following this guy for three hours.
Something broke near the end of the alleyway. Vik looked up and saw the end of a brown coat dissappearing around the corner.

"Hey that guy had a 50,000 woolong bounty on his head! Come back here!" Vik yelled then as he stood up and started running towards the end of the alley.

Lunamaria slumped in a chair outside Kathy's Cafe, she held a paper coffee cup in her right hand, her PDA in her left. It was early morning still, she'd landed on Ganymede two hours ago handing in Izzy Mone, "Wanted for a parking fine," Lunamaria placed her coffee on the table in front of her. She'd nearly always dealt with small frys, she didn't have the kit to deal with professional criminals. Now she was here Lunamaria was thinking about taking a look round, with all the water Ganymede looked amazing from space, but it was sort of scumy, least where she landed.

She swung her feet onto the table, shaking the metallic top and got back to looking at her PDA. It was displaying pictures of men and some women with information, each had a yellow number at the bottom of their picture, she scrolled through them before letting it rest on one.

"Hans Durban," She took her coffee back in hand, "Wanted for eight counts of murder, kidnapping, theft, arson," Luna took a sip of her coffee while scanning the rest of the list. She turned her eye back to the top and focused on the 3,000,000 woolong bounty, "Last seen on Ganymede, guess I could take this," She drank the last of her coffee. She stood up and started to walk along the sidewalk, she gazed over the small number of people that were about that early. There was a woman with a dog walking towards her, to her left a man and his son putting fruit outside their shop, "I need to find out his haunts or his credit card data." She stop staring at a alleyway from which a shout emanated, shortly followed by a man a long brown trench coat, the face she recognized.

"Hey stop," She yelled pulling out her Beretta, at the man but he took no notice and kept running, knocking over one of the stands the shop keeper had put out, "Coward," Luna shouted at him, before holstering her gun. She started to run after him as he crossed the street up about twenty meters from her.

10/11/2007 10:25 AM

The bounty? A middle aged man with a gut and short black hair. Payoff? 75,000 Woolong. Crime? 2 burtal murders through torturous means. Location? 15 feet away. Tyler sat in a dark corner of the bar. Nobody noticed him enter or sit down, nobody knew he was there. His mark was sitting at a table with three other men discussing business. Tyler had been watching the bar closley since he first entered. There were several things he had noticed. One, There were two rival gangs one on each side of the bar, and both were drinking heavily. Two, There were three guards moving about the bar watching his mark closley. And three, somebody had mixed his drink wrong. Tyler sighed and stared at the drink.

- Well, I suppose this is about as good a time as ever then -

Tyler took his glass and chucked it as hard as he could at one of the gangs. Sitting Calmly in the shadows they of course thought it was the others. watching the following shouting match and threats for about 3 minuets a sucker punch was finally thrown and the bar broke out into a huge brawl. The guards were caught up in the fight while Tyler jumped from his seat and pucnhed his mark in the face, knocking him silly and sending him to the floor. He picked him up and dragged him out of the bar unoticed in the comotion. Taking him to a back ally Tyler cuffed him and drugged him. He drug him over to the rental car he had stashed behind some dumpsters and tossed him in the trunk. brushing off a couple peanuts from his shoulder he got in the the car and drove off casually listening to the radio and humming along.

10/11/2007 2:13 PM

Vik skidded around the corner and saw the man running down the streets knocking over a stand in the process. Some chick pulled a pistol and told the guy to stop but he kept going. Vik took off after him and so did the chick with the gun.

10/13/2007 7:09 PM

Tabitha is standing at the side of a building and just as a man is about the fly by She sticks out her arm and cloth lines him.

"A 500,000 woolong bounty. Kind of pathetic but eh." She lights up a cigarette. "Money is money."

The man flies back up to his feet and swings at Tabitha. As she steps back he begins to run away again. "They always gotta do it the hard way don't they?" She begins to follow him. Gun still at her side. She grabs her waki and yells, "Indi. Are you sure this is the guy?"

"Uh Yeah!"

"Alright." Tabitha goes faster. She stops to grab a broom that is leaning against a building and throws it into the man's legs. His face flies into the side walk.

"Always the hard way aye?"

(OOC The 50,000 woolong guy was killed, (I think) the guy we were chasing was 3,000,000, OOC)

Luna wiped the sweat from her hairline, she walked briskly towards the woman standing over her bounty, "Thats mine," Her hand on holster, "If you don't mind." She stopped a go ten feet or so away waiting for an answer, visibly adjusting her grip on her beretta.

10/14/2007 9:33 AM

Tabitha arches her brow. She looks back at the girl behind her. "you sure bout that?" Keeping her foot firmly on the chest of the man on the ground. She looks down at him then back at the girl.

"Cause I rec-in that you may be chasin' the other half of the bounty. His twin. How much your brother worth aye?"

From the ground the terrified voice replies with a shaky, "I don't know...3 mill."

"Good boy." She stomps on his diaphragm knocking him out. "You know we could catch the other one together..." She flicks her cigarette away as the light ashes are put out by a passing car.

"From what the files say... He likes to make Cowboys and Hunters, specially female ones, disappear." She slips a grin. "By the way. I'm Tab." She holds out her right hand. "I rec-in your Lunamaria Hawke? Am I right?"

10/14/2007 12:01 PM

Tyler pulled into the parking lot where his drop was to be made. Coming to a stop he got out of the car and lit a cigarette. Leaning against the side of the car he looked around before finally resting his gaze upon a black truck coming his way.

When it pulled up a came to a stop Tyler, tossed the driver the keys to the car and walked off. Coming to the street he took a final drag of his cigarette and looked up and down the street. Suddenly he saw a man running get laid out by some women smoking a cigarette. grinning he watched as another women came running up to her. He gained mroe interest when he saw that she had her hand on what looked to be a Beretta. looking back down the street he saw a man running their way.

- Hmph... This is somthing you dont see everyday... -

Tyler grinned and walked over to a cafe to his right, sat down, and watched the four people. Lighting another cigarette he leaned back trying to read the lips of the people across the street.

10/14/2007 12:12 PM

"Tabitha Chy Ty Casier," Luna cocked her head, "Your ship is in the south dock, port sixteen," She wasn't impressed by the woman knowing her name, Luna turned sideways taking a few steps. "How are you so sure that it isn't this man, I'm looking for," Stopping, "Either way my take on both is seventy percent," She took her PDA from its pouch and very quickly ran her fingers across it, "Otherwise port control has orders to impound your ship due to a very large parking fine," Luna walked a few steps closer and help out her hand.

10/14/2007 12:29 PM

Vik ran up just as the two women were done introducing themselves.
"Hey that guy just killed the bounty I was after. He's going to pay," Vik said. He reached down and grabbed the guy's shirt and shook him back into conciousness.
"You owe me 50,000 woolongs you bastard," Vik said when the guys eyes fluttered open.

"Your ship is in the south dock, port sixteen,"

"How are you so sure that it isn't this man, I'm looking for,"

"Either way my take on both is seventy percent,"

"Otherwise port control has orders to impound your ship due to a very large parking fine,"

Tabitha grins, " Think we're slick don't we?" She lights a cigarette. "You can have mister 500,000 if he means that much to you, but one thing about my ship. She ain't planet side. Port sixteen is that something Hornet or another Nico. . . Impound his ship, might be a good laugh... for me."

"Hey that guy just killed the bounty I was after. He's going to pay,"
"You owe me 500,000 woolongs you bastard,"

"Wait...*looks down at the guy under her foot* So...There is more then two of them... Interestin'.." She steps off of the man's chest. She begins to walk away. "You two can fight over this small pickins." She picks up her waki taki, (In russian) "Nico! There is more then two. There is at least four of them. Confirm four."

[Edited by LibraRabbit on Sunday, October 14, 2007 6:19 PM]

10/14/2007 7:40 PM

* So...There is more then two of them... Interestin'.."

"Hey what do you mean by that? If this guy has buddies they're gonna pay me back,"
Vik threw the guy on the ground and started following the woman who was walking away.

10/14/2007 10:14 PM

Nico waited in his ship until someone messaged him. He was kicking back in the pilots chair, listening to heavy metal music. The port seemed to be relatively busy. Nico was monitoring some of the moving ships, checking them for any bounties. "Man, this is so boring." Nico thinks to himself as his walkie talkie goes off. "So much for the pleasure dome. For it being so pleasurable, it is rather boring." He then noticed his Walkie and picked it up. "What's up Tab?"

"Nico! There is more then two. There is at least four of them. Confirm four."

(Returning in Russian) "Really now. Huh. Maybe this isn't going to be as boring as I thought. I'll meet up with you shortly."

Nico walked toward the cargo bay of the ship. He pulled the tarp off a bike and set it to take off. "Anderson!" Nico called toward the ship. A small panel lowered from the ceiling of the cargo bay. The panel lit up and showed something that resembled a face, and The music then cut out.

"Yes sir" the panel replied
"Watch the ship, I'm going to earn our keep. Call if anything happens."
"Will do sir. Best of luck."

Nico kicked the door open to the cargo bay and road off. 'Hopefully I don't miss any of the fun.'

10/14/2007 10:31 PM

"Hey what do you mean by that? If this guy has buddies they're gonna pay me back,"

She stops and looks at these kids she seems to be collecting without trying. "Listen... These guys are either look identical or they surgically did it. They each got different tattoos." She slides her jacket off of her left shoulder. The military tattoo on her arm is visible. "They each got a different one of these."

(Returning in Russian) "Really now. Huh. Maybe this isn't going to be as boring as I thought. I'll meet up with you shortly."

"Now kids. If you'll excuse me." She continues to walk away.

10/16/2007 9:11 AM

Luna turned as Tab walked away, "Sod that plan," She walked away from the guy, heading to the lot where her ship was parked. "So they're projects," She climbed up the wing, "That makes it more interesting, and harder," Luna pulled the release on the hatch and dropped inside. She took her PDA and placed it on the ships dashboard, plugging it into the main system. Luna took a pair of goggles off the dash on the other side and put them on plugging them into the ship as well.

She sat for a while typing on the ships keyboard, "So I'm looking for the top end of a project," Grimacing slightly full aware that she was talking to herself, "So first off is the medical net, encrypted police channels." Luna didn't really want to dive through all this and risk herself but she knew how to cover her tracks and leave random paths, "So who really wants this bounty,"

10/16/2007 6:03 PM

As Tabitha reaches the meet up point, she comlinks Indi.

"Hey Indi, how where the searches on those med networks?"

"Great. You and Nico get here soon."

"Rodger that."

Tabitha lights another cigarette and waits. A minute or so passes, when she hears a click. She ducks to knee level and spins around with her right leg out. The man falls to the ground.

"Robbin' people you ain't never seen before ain't smart." she stands up straight. She grabs him by the collar.

He mutters in some language.

"I got this problem with my hearin' so" she cracks her knuckles "Speak up." He remains a silent as stone. she takes her cigarette in her left hand and brings the hot end near his face. "Need I be repeatin' myself? I hate repeatin' myself."

His eyes grow wide as he watches the red hot embers break off the paper and brush lightly across his cheek. He swallows hard then says, "This is for you." He pulls a piece of folded paper out of his pocket.

Tabitha grabs it. "What is it?"

"My boss say you know. Lt. Tabitha Chii Tie Kasier." He then, without warning grabs something out of his other pocket and stabs Tabitha in the hand. He tries to run in the hopes that she would have released his collar.

Tabitha's eye twitches. "I was gonna let ya'll go, but see... Now ya'll had to get me mad."

The next thing the man sees is a fist then the concert.

10/16/2007 6:35 PM

[OOC: I decided to add a new character. Her sheet is up in the OOC section if you want to check it out.]

Viktor watched everyone else walk away then looked down at the man lying on the ground.
"Well if noone else wants the bounty I'll take it," he muttered to himself.
He picked up the man's unconcious body and threw the limp for over his shoulder then made his way to his ship. He threw the guy in the back then opened up a com link to the Pandora.
"Hey Viktoria the other guy got iced but I got us a different bounty here," he said.
"Okay bring him on up and we can find out how much he's worth," his younger sister replied.
"Sure thing Viky see you in an hour," Vik cut the link and took off.

Nico rode toward the rendezvous point to meet up with Tab and Indi. He wasn't sure, but something didn't feel right to him. He radioed his ship to see if there were any new developments.
"No sir, everything is fine on this end." Anderson replied. Anderson was the name of the personality the was built with. When Nico first bought the ship, most of the data was corrupted until Nico reprogrammed it. From the reprogramming he found an entire diagnostics and system upkeep interface, as well as an AI program. He then reprogrammed that to become the personality of the ship. Since Nico works alone, the ship makes perfect company.
"Alright, keep me posted. Out." Though everything was fine there, he still felt uneasy. He soon reached the rendezvous, and saw Tab standing near a knocked out man on the floor. Her hand was bleeding and she seemed very pissed off. "Damn, I did miss the fun. You ok?" Nico asked her as he got off the bike.

10/20/2007 11:22 AM

"Damn, I did miss the fun. You ok?"

Before Tab could react her brain took a poll (40% girl flail 50% Angry reaction 10% none)
She turns around and points at the knife sticking out of her hand. "Oww.." she says with little to no emotion in her voice.

"Oh by the way. Do you know what this is?" she pulls what is out of the paper and hands it to him. It was small and black with a piece of metal on the top. It said HD. There was a space with writing on it. It said, " T and N" The back was also black but had a silver circle.

"I've never seen one before."

10/20/2007 1:53 PM

Vik guided the ship into the hanger on the Pandora and sat down on the floor. He dragged the prisoner out of the passenger section and carried him to the cages in the cargo bay where they stored the bounties. Vik locked the guy in a cage just as Viky was walking in.

"Is this the bounty?" she asked.

"Yep. Let's go see how much he's worth," Vik said. They made their way to the lounge and turned on the computer. They searched the bounty list and eventually came up with the guy they were looking for.

"This is bigger than one guy. There are four of them. They're worth 500,000 woolongs each or 3 million together. It says here thay all look the same," Viky said.

"Yeah this chick I met said something about that. She said they all have different tattoos on their shoulders. Since we have this one I bet that anyone after this bounty will want him back," Vik said.

"Maybe we should get the others first," Viky said.

"Okay. Set the ship on auto and let's do this. I can't handle this alone," Vik replied. He pulled his jacket on and headed for tyhe hanger while Viky headed for the bridge of the Pandora. Ten minutes later they launched and headed for the planet's surface.

10/22/2007 8:17 AM

"I've never seen one before."

Nico took a minute to study this odd piece of plastic handed to him. "What kind of outdated technology is this? I've never seen one either but man is it old." He said about the antique. He then redirected his attention to Tab's hand. "Come on, let's get that fixed up for you." He grabbed her by the other hand and tried to to pull her towards his bike. "I have medic supplies in the side bag."

10/22/2007 8:28 AM

"I have medic supplies in the side bag."

As he pulls her towards his bike, she can't control her mouth. "Grrouw I love it when your being rough." She laughs then says, "Wow. My brain is just gone today. Let me call Indi. She knows about outdated technology." She hits the button on her waki. "Indi...You need to see this thing."

10/29/2007 6:25 AM

Viky and Vik flew through the atmosphere side by side. When they reached building level the split up.

"I have the last known whereabouts of these guys and where they live. You go to the houses and I'll go get some intel. Meet at the Pleasure Dome in five hours," Viky said over the radio.

"Aww why that sleazy old bar?" Vik replied.

"Because we're less likely to be overheard there now go. See you in five hours. Viky out," she replied.

"Over and out sis," Vik said. The two ships shot across the rooftops to their respective destinations.

11/02/2007 6:26 PM

As he pulls her towards his bike, she can't control her mouth. "Grrouw I love it when your being rough." She laughs then says, "Wow. My brain is just gone today. Let me call Indi. She knows about outdated technology." She hits the button on her waki. "Indi...You need to see this thing."

Nico can't help but smirk with what Tab said. 'Gees, what a perv.' he thought as he opened the side bag of his bike. He started to patch her hand as she called Indi. "So what have I missed?"

[Edited by Zerofox on Friday, November 2, 2007 6:35 PM]

11/03/2007 5:10 AM

"What did you miss... Let's see. Mister fails at being a ninja over there could have just handed it to me. What ever this thing is..." She just kind of stands there for a minute. Not really focusing on anything in particular. She looks at the disk again. 'What a strange lookin' thing.'

As she holds the disk in one hand and her other hand being held still she begins to hear noise behind her.

"You little" she hear. Before she can move she can feel cold metal against her neck.

"Nico... help would be good."

"Let her hand go. You hand him the disk."

She does so. While doing this she just grows this really pissed off look on her face. Then he begins to pull her away from Nico. "I'll make you pay from hittin' me you little whore."

11/03/2007 5:30 AM

Nico let Tabs hand go to avoid her getting hurt. He watched him try to drag her off. 'Shit have to be careful on this.' he thought as he tried to move to where he can get a shot on the guy. "Hold it, hold it, just let her go!" Nico warned the guy. He followed with some distance to avoid him doing something stupid. Once Nico had a clean shot, he wasn't going to waste time. He managed to see the guys leg and thought it would only help. Nico took a knife from his leg holster and threw it into the guys leg. As the guy was distracted enough by this to try and bend down toward the knife, Nico ran up and kicked him in the head and knocked him to the ground. Nico subdued him by stomping on his hand with the gun, and pointing his gun at the guy. "Don't try to be funny." He said pointing the gun at the guys forehead. "You okay Tab"

11/03/2007 5:44 AM

"Nice flip kick, Jackie Chan." She rubs her neck for a second or two. She then says, "aside from the pint of blood I just lost I'm good." she closes her eyes and gives him a peace sign. When she opens her eyes again everything is blurred and the sound is warped. 'What the hell?' she thinks to herself.

The man is looking up at the man who has a gun to him and stomping on his hand. Then he looks to see Tab, who is beginning to put her hands on her head. He begins to laugh.

Tab can't hear the laughing, well at least that of a man. She hears laughs that you would expect from a demon. She closes her eyes again and tries to block out the noise of Demon laughs, roaring, and anything else she can hear.

She drops to her knees. She is seeing images and sounds that make no sense or that could not be happening. She, still has her eyes closed.

The man still laughing says, "That took long enough to kick in!" He laughs more. "You must have the constitution of an elephant!"

11/07/2007 5:47 PM

Nico looks to see what this guy was laughing at. He sees tab on her knees and heard the man.

"That took long enough to kick in! You must have the constitution of an elephant!"

Nico reached down and pulled the man up by his shirt collar. He then pistol whipped him with his gun, and then pointed the barrel into his chin. "What have you done to her you little insect.?!" Nico slammed the man into the ground to make sure he got the point. "Start talking!"

11/07/2007 5:54 PM

To Tab every sound is warped. She can't tell up from down. Things are just blurs. She can here someone yelling.


She closes her eyes to cut off the blurs. She can hear roars, horns, fire, almost anything.

As the man hits the ground. He looks back at Tab. "Just showing her who she's messin' with boy." he pulls a string from under his jacket and a beeping sound is heard. "Bye kids."

11/07/2007 6:05 PM

Nico heard the beeping sound and had to act quickly. He pulled the trigger of his gun and saw the mans head blow out through the top. "Not giving you the satisfaction." He got up and ran toward Tab. Ne scooped her up in his arms and ran down the alleyway. Nico dove behind a dumpster and held Tab until the explosive went off. After the explosion, he sat with her for a minute. 'What the hell?' he thought to himself as he pulled the disk out of his pocket. 'Where the hell is Indi?'

11/07/2007 6:22 PM

She felt she was moving. She didn't know what was going on and she didn't like it. She started to fell around again. She felt skin. warm skin. She felt the face and realized it was Nico. She feels for his hands then pulls his hands to her ears. She then opens her eyes and focus' on where she is almost 100% where his face is. She just stares at him. The lines of his face are still blurred, but his eyes come into focus.


She falls forward into his chest.

11/07/2007 7:16 PM

Indi pops up from behind Tab, "Didn't I friggin tell you to hurry the hell up, sheesh-" she cuts herself off and grabs the thing from Tab's hand..."Holy mother of Ramadan! its a bloody Floppy disk!" She whirls Tab around and her smile shrinks and turns into an annoyed scowl, "You had a bloody floppy disk and didn't TELL me?!" she growled almost nose to nose with Tab now shaking her shoulders "Oh no you don't! you WILL wake up goddamnit! You are SO in trouble once you regain consciousness!" She flops Tab back into Nico's chest and starts to walk off. "I tell people to come back to the ship and they dont, and THEN they pass out with floppy bloody mother fu-" she stops her mumbling and stomping and turns around to look a Nico, on hand on her hip an annoyed look on her face, her pink hair flopped to one side.

"Well? You gonna just stand there like a nob or are you going to bring our "illustrious" captain back to the ship?" she air quotes and rolls her eyes, turns around and continues stomping.

[Edited by madcap on Wednesday, November 7, 2007 7:24 PM]

11/14/2007 7:11 PM

Nico Watches this entire display in amazement and then follows Indi back to the ship. "you know Indi, they do make decaf coffee now and it tastes just as good as the original." He comments as he hands Tab off to Indi. "Here is your "illustrious captain" as you so like to call her." Nico turns and walks toward his bike. "Get her back to your ship. I'll meet you there in a few."

11/14/2007 7:30 PM

Vik looked at the adress on the small PDA he was holding then looked up at the dilapidated warehouse infront of him. Yep this was the place, but who would want to live there.

Vik turned off the PDA and stuck it in his pocket then walked over to a dusty window and wiped a spot clean so he could peer inside.

"Well today's my lucky day isn't it," he said as he saw all three of the other bounties sitting around a table in the canter of the warehouse floor. He pulled out his walkie and flipped it to the Pandora's private channel.

"Viky I have all three of them here. Come to 100 east Washington, in the warehouse district," he said quietly.

"I can't right now. I'll be there in about twenty minutes," his sister replied.

"I can't wait that long sis. It looks like their meeting is about to wrap up. I'm going in," he said.

"No, don't they have extensive military train..." she started but Vik flipped the walkie off and drew his pistol. He pulled a suppressor/silencer out of his coat pocket and screwed it onto the end of the barrel then slipped around the side of the building to find the back door. About halfway down the alleyway he saw the red fire of the tip of a cigarette. He leveled the pistol at the spot where the owner of the cigarette's head should be and fired.

There was a sound like a piece of meat hitting the floor then a thud as the body fell to the ground. Vik rushed over and quickly searched the man's pockets. It didn't take him long to find a key. He also found some extra ammunition which he put in his pocket and a pistol which he tucked into his waistband. He dragged the body further into the shadows then picked his pistol up from where he had sat it and unlocked the door.
