Christina Wayfar - A brief briefing​


  • Christina looks towards Kaede and nods though has a slight tilt of her head at the san addition to her last name, but soon moves on from it, she didn't mind, it was just an unexpected thing. her attention turns back to Eric, hearing out Kaede's earlier request and idea, she nods. "I wouldn't mind doing some practice in this, holo-deck you mentioned, would be good to see what we all can do and get to know each other in a mission setting, that way we at least feel comfortable working together" she says with a nod, though she had no idea about the Aura suits or what they did exactly, "as far as the aura suits, what are those... exactly?" She asks with a curious tone.

Tal did not really know where Ransei was, either. But he made a mental note to look it up later, maybe do some very basic research, rather than continuing to pester Kaede about it. Besides, they had bigger problems to deal with than world geography.

Luckily, Damon snapped out of his fugue without more external intervention. Tal's face was grim and concerned as he said "I'm sorry to hear that. My condolences." The many people lost to Team Rocket was exactly why it was so important to stop them. And surely many others had trauma stemming from the criminal organization's fiendish activities. As Christina spoke up, he frowned and said "People typically don't have voluntary control over something like a flashback" he said, a touch defensively. Damon clearly didn't mean to check out. But still, he partially agreed with Christina's point. Experiencing these kind of triggers would put Damon, and everyone else, in danger if it happened on the battlefield. Perhaps it would be best for the boss to manage things from a distance, rather than be on the front lines. "Do you plan to fight with us, Sir? I would hate to put you in a situation that may be...retraumatizing."

The information was more helpful. Having a list of wild pokemon in the area would be the most useful. Unlike trainers with their teams, as a ranger, Tal most often relied on what he could capture locally. It always made him feel more in sync with the environment, but it also meant needing a good understanding of the region. Rescung two police agents would be hard enough, the addition of more prisoners and hostages would only complicate matters.

He nodded at the discussion of more training. It could only help. And he was also curious what an aura suit was, though luckily Christina had already asked that question for him.

Christina Wayfar - The boss' condition​


  • Christina turns her head to Tal, listening to his statement of 'People typically don't have voluntary control over something like a flashback' She was going to say something else but hears Tal's response to Eric's question about joining them in the fight and nods, "of course no one has control over flashbacks, but I do agree with Tal, none of us would want to put you in a situation that would be equally or even more traumatizing, if it's more comfortable for you to coordinate everything from here or from a remote location that might be more suitable for the moment... it's obvious what happened is still... quite fresh"

  • Regarding information about the land of Kitakami as well as its native Pokemon, Kaede figured it would be handy. After all, Pokemon Rangers typically relied on any Pokemon they could locally find for their work in addition to their own partners, though Kaede herself had no qualms about fighting warrior-style -- more or less like a trainer but only with one Pokemon (in her case, Shiron) per battle -- when the situation called for it. But still, Eric probably would need some time to send the list over, so it had to wait.

    And then curiosity ensued on Christina's part regarding the Aura Suits. She did ask the question, yes, though Tal also looked like he was curious too. "Aura Suit is, well..." Kaede scratched the back of her head while trying to figure out how to explain it. "Let's just say it's our super suits. I do think it has something to do with the Aura..." she looked to Eric for either more explanation on the suit or permission to show everyone her Sherry Ruth persona (or even better, both)...

    ...only for her expression to soften upon hearing Tal and Christina suggesting that Eric should manage things from a safe place away from the battlefield. If Kaede remembered correctly, Peggy's passing was, like, about two years ago or so (she did attend her funeral, after all), but it seemed like the induced trauma was still fresh in Eric's mind even now. "You know what, Schafer-san is right," the Ranseian Ranger mused before actually assuring the boss, "Don't worry about us, Damon-sama. We can handle the bulk once we get there." Her snowy fox buddy nodded in agreement.

With Marcus's growing frustration at the meeting seeming to be going nowhere, and even worse, the thought that people would prefer their leader to sit on the sidelines telling them what to do without taking any personal risk if the fighting, his hand begins to twitch and slowly move up to his mask, feeling an internal burning need to take it off and have a go at all the people he'd supposedly have to work with in order to have even a chance at finding his family again... But as his fingers began to brush against one of the securing clasps, 'Keaton' fought through just one more time, causing him to lower his hand again and prevent a possible insident. Keaton then finds a moment of pause in the room's chatter to speak.

"This deliberation seems to be getting us nowhere quickly. And since you're all more than likely going to find out about this at some point or another, I might as well just say it...
I wasn't invited here like the rest of you were. In fact, the only reason I'm here at all was because of a mistake made by one of the messengers tasked with locating another of the people for your group. I don't know why messenger thought I was whoever that person was, but I read about your efforts to put together a team with the goal of wiping out this blight upon our countries, and I... (There is noticible hesitation in his muffled, semi-robotic voice, and he clenches his fists together tightly while his two Pokemon watch with sorrow on their faces)
I... (He sighs heavily) I'd rather not go into exactly why and how I know them any further, but I can sum it up with this. Those bastards stole something of immense importance to me. Something I value even beyond my own life... They stole half of the only family I have left, and crippled two of the three remaining members. My Pokemon team... My family... I tried to hunt them down. I tracked the one directly responsible all the way from Galar to Kalos. But I lost the rat bastard's trail somewhere in the city of lights... If I am not wanted here, then I'll go back to hunting them down on my own. But even if I were at my best, with my remaining team at their prime, as much as it hurts to admit it, I'm not capable of taking them all on alone. Doing so would only risk the others getting taken captive as well. Something that I will not let happen, even if it costs me my life... So that's it, then... That's why we came here unrequested, because while I'm sure that on my own, what remains of my team and I could cause some considerable damage to their organization, but that's not enough. Not for the ones who were stolen, and absolutely not for me. For what they did, if they- (He cuts himself off and fiddles with a small dial near the base of one of his mask's ears) That's... Irrelevant. (He looks directly at Mr. Damon) My name is John Keaton, and no one wants to see that team be burned to the ground more than I do. Er, not to say there aren't others who might feel equal disdain for them, just not more than me. (His mask's 'mouth' shifts into a cheeky smile) And me and my family (his Pokemon walk over to be at his feet as a symbol of unity with their master) will serve your cause, if you'll have us."
