Miguel gave a smile to the bear and hopped up onto a barstool and leaned forward on the counter, "One of the reasons why I turned in for the night, actually. Salty air was getting to the joints. If you have any sort of metal friendly lubricant and maybe a towel, I would be much obliged." He gripped the top of his muzzle and his lower jaw and slowly forced them apart, "That's the problem with untreated metals..." He waited to see if they had anything, "I've been meaning to ask, now that the surprise has worn off a bit: What is this place?"

Now Owain glanced at the newcomer and ran through his brain to find the right words after swearing in Marcher. "Yer... yer a made've metal beast," he asked in confusion.

"They'd try'n EAT me," Owain replied, surprise in his tone. "Well, ah'm not that easy t' eat, y'know? Still..." He shook his head. "Not e'en th' vermin tried that. Quite a world y'got. Least'n mine we're all a bit equal, like?" He leaned in close. "An' none've them furless things saw in 'ere earlier, neith'r."


"Furless things? You mean you don't have humans? Huh." Flash said, wondering what a world like that would be like. "So if carnivores don't eat other animals... what do they eat? Also, it sounds like we'd like it where you are from." He said before becoming distracted by Miguel's admission of his mechanical nature.

Returning to the counter, rem asked, "anyone else want anything?" glancing at the newcomer. "oh, um, your musculature emulation seems to be desyncing."

"You're a robot?! That's totally awesome!" the tiny mouse said enthusiastically. Flash ran over to Miguel so fast, he might as well have teleported. He inspected the metal jaw and poked at the android's arm, totally thrilled and impressed by this revelation.

Oddly enough, Deus started to relax. As far as he knew, robots didn't eat and would have no interest in hurting Flash. Then again, there are more motivations for causing harm than for food...
"Flash, Don't pester robot person." He warned, feeling it would be better to be safe than squashed.

Passing Miguel a key, Rem comments, "utility closet is next to the bathrooms. it's the black spray can with the red stripe around it and the 'food safe' sticker. If it works on the pizza oven's conveyor it should work here."

Flash would find that while the fur on Miguel's arm felt real, the arm itself had barely any give like a real arm would. Miguel let out a laugh, drawing the corners of his mouth up into a smile. A faint green glow floated around the lenses of his sunglasses as his eyes followed the mouse's movements, "I'm glad you think so. I'm going to assume robots aren't very common in your world. Limited to the rich, I suppose."He turned to look over his shoulder at the bear, "You really don't have to worry, I'm pretty harmless. Really."
He took the key from Rem, "Thanks! I will be right back," he said to the mouse. He unlocked it and walked in searching for the can. He pulled one of the shelf that matched the description and turned it over to find the 'food safe' sticker. He opened his jaw a little wider and sprayed some of the substance into the back of his jaw, opening and closing it a bit to work it in. Once it was finally back in working condition he headed back to his seat and returned the key to Rem, "Thanks for that," he said, hopping back up onto the stool.

Houston looks around at all the newcomers.
"Age's gettin' to me. I spaced out and didn't see 'em walk in"

He glances at the funny mouthed one and says "First my arm, now a full cyborg??? I don't feel as unique as I did when I walked in here. Name's Houston. Pleasure to meet you. Ain't got to worry about gettin' arrested if you got a warrant. Off duty. Like to keep work at work..."

"Not a problem." the ferret answers cheerfully, retrieving the utility room key, before his attention turned to trying not to laugh at Houston's understatement of a comment. guess I shouldn't mention one of yesterday's guests technically being a walking aquarium then.

"Pretty sure a dead universe condensed into a single building is out of your jurisdiction anyway." rem mumbled offhandedly.

"You're more of a cyborg than I am since you've got living parts, I'm more of an android since I'm 100% machine. But that's beside the point, looking around I'd say you're still pretty unique. Only one here who isn't all of something. Mostly living with a bit of the techno side of things going on. Gives you a broader perspective than any of us. That aside, it's good to meet you as well. I am Miguel." An ear clicked to the side as Rem mumbled about the dead universe.

Deus grunted in acknowledgement.

Meanwhile, Flash was back to his conversation with Owain. "Sorry about that. Anyway, I'm still curious. if carnivores where you're from don't eat animals, what do they eat?"

"Some 'them still do," Owain admitted before taking a drink, "bu' 's rare. Most've th' place eats grains an' fruits an'..." he struggled to think of the word 'vegetables' and gave up. "Parsnips an' oth'r growin' things an' Fish. 'S' all good, Flish."

"Ha, I may be old but I ain't deaf... You're absolutely right though." Houston laughed out.

"Did I say cyborg? I know the feeling about rusty, locking joints."

Finally noticing Flash spastically running around, he finally says "You may wanna slow down a little bit before you accidentally get stepped on"

Just as he finished speaking, his arm started sparking and he screams in pain. "STAR HEADED SCREWDRIVER, QUICK PLEASE!!!"

"Nothing in here uses screws..." Rem comments helplessly, glancing at the others his expression asking 'what do I do?'

Owain laid out the wheelwright tools he carried on the bar top, including a few bevels and assorted small blades. "Dunno what y' wants, fella, bu', if'n anythin' there'll do...

Miguel reached inside his jacket and pulled out a couple multitools with various ends on them, "Mostly phillips over here, maintenance was pretty standardized so the tools are accessible. I'm pretty sure you can use a flathead if you take the time to work it in enough..." He slid the tools down the counter to Houston.

Houston grabbed one of the smallest of Miguel's Flathead screwdrivers, shoves it in one of the holes, pushes it toward the ceiling, and pulls it towards the floor. The sparks stopped and he said "scares me every time. Thanks for all the offers for help!"

Now that the excitement was over, Flash went back to his conversation with Owain. "So what did you mean by weird furless things? Did you mean humans?"

"No problem. Glad I could be of assistance. I keep these tools around for similar reasons," he explained as he slid the multitools back into his jacket. "Does that happen frequently?"

"They're pretty much everywhere in our world." Flash said. "They're dangerous, but typically keep to themselves unless provoked."

Owain humphed. "SOunds like th' vermin in my worl', Flish," he said before taking a drink. "Rats, Llwynogod... uhh... Fox's, Feer'ts an' such." He looked around a little warily to make sure he'd not offended anyone before putting his tools away.

Flash looked a little confused. "I think we still have a "frame of reference" problem. All of what you just listed have tried to eat me on pretty much a daily basis all my life. Yes, even rats. Humans just don't like it when I enter their territory unannounced. If the "vermin" are just acting like humans in your world, you really shouldn't be so bitter. You're lucky." He was a little less cautious about offending people. He just figured no one here but Deus was from his world, so what he said didn't really apply to any of them anyway.

"Sounds like y' got it tough, li'le Flish," Owain said simply, rolling a small gold coin unevenly around the table top. "Must be s'me good thin's, eh?"

"That can't be how that's supposed to operate... when was the last time you had that thing serviced?" Rem comments, still looking concerned.

"Its been about six years since I had it looked at. It's supposed to do that, I just thought I had a little bit more time before it happened. It's a stress reliever for my arm. Too much pressure built up in the pneumatics. It's a combo of pneumatics and electrics. The steam from the pistons hit a wire is all..." Answering Rem and Miguel's questions at the same time...

Owain shook his head and got down closer to Flash. "I have no clue what he's talking about," he confided to his little friend.

Miguel lifted an eyebrow and glanced up at Rem, giving them a quick look of confusion and concern. "What an, uh, interesting design." He smiled at Houston. "Do all your pneumatics run off of steam and electricity in your world?"

"Are you sure that's not assembled backwards or something? Sources of liquid and exposed circuitry together, are typically a bad combination." if anything that answer seems to be making Remnant more concerned, not less.

"Well..." Flash thought for a moment. "I guess I just try to make the best of things. I've got Deus, for one. Also I'm going to be living more among humans. Like I said, humans are dangerous when provoked, so predators steer clear of them. But if you get permission to live among them and follow their rules, there's nowhere safer. Deus and I will be safe. We'll never have to worry about predators. We'll be..." He paused for a moment as a bunch of what he was saying sunk in. "... Extremely bored..." He lamented. "To be honest, running from carnivores and watching as Deus throws them into the next county is kind of the only entertainment we get aside from the few books we manage to find. Not sure what I'm going to do once that's gone. I guess... I could find more comics to read. That will probably be easier to do now that I'll be around humans." He said, talking more to himself than Owain now.

He seemed to have realized that he had gone off on a tangent, and so he apologized. "Anyway, there are good things. Like I said, I have Deus. He's a good friend. I also met some newer friends recently."

"Fr'nds al'ays 'elp y' to decide when it's time t' settle, Flish," Owain said contemplatively. "Met a few recently m'self, at an abaty... um... abbey 'f all places. Ev'n got a possibl' lady friend. Do 'elp y' settle, don't they," he asked with a grin before frowning. "What is a... Cormic?"
