"U-U-Uhh..." He said, taking a closer look at the now limp Tigress. "D-D-Doc? Doc!" He shouted, nearly instantaneously appearing next to the medical officer. "Sh-Sh-She seems like she's in pretty bad shape. I don't know what happened, usually it doesn't have that kind of effect on people, I don't know what's so special about her."

"I agree, guys." Ryan laughs, "But it worked. He was so humiliated by having to walk to the office like that that he never bullied anyone again. I wasn't his only victim, you know. Funny thing is, we became friends. I felt bad about what I'd done so I gave him my jacket so he was at least partly covered. He can never find out though. As far as anyone knows it was a gas explosion in the sewer."

Lightfoot is already moving when Gregg calls, having spotted the prone form through the thinning fog. He doesn't waste time answering the hellhound as he hurries to his patient and taps her palm with two fingers.
"Tigress? Can you hear me? Squeeze my paw if you can hear me. If you can hear me, I need you to Shift up. It will make your body deal with the gas more quickly. Can you Shift up for me?" he asks, placing an ear to her chest.

Julian wished there was something he felt comfortable enough leaning on as he kinda felt a bit dreamy right now. He really felt like shifting down but he wasn't sure if Heather's system would be able to hear him that far away. "Southern gate beach Sandwich shop at Seven, Colonel," he said, wondering if she'd monitored his call earlier. Well, she might have. Military did that, didn't they?
"Alright. Don't worry, we'll get you back in time." Heather reassured Julian before noticing what was going on with Tigress. "...Julian, I need a lift down to where Tigress is, now." She said strictly.

---------------------------------

Wildfire sat back and allowed a small green flame to swirl down his arm and into his claws. He twirled the fire around his fingers before catching it in the palm of his hand. "How long 'til the pizza gets here?" he asked, opening his hand to reveal a lotus flower. He set the flower down on a nearby table. "Getting a little hungry."

The paralyzed Zoomorph doesn't show any response at first, her heartbeat slowed and consistent as though she were peacefully asleep. The jagged breathing plays a strong contradiction: not gasping for air, but breathing deeply between intermittent full pauses mid-inhale or exhale. Finally, her disturbed hand snaps closed in what seems a sudden spasm, followed by a violent coughing fit. Each hoarse cough vents small amounts of the same smoke from her coat and mouth, its diluted effect being freed back into her surroundings, but after about a dozen she's returned to the semi-aware state of forced rest. The only notable change is that her hold on the doctor's paw loosens slightly, a firm intent replacing the locked muscles. Even with her mind buried in the choking static, following orders was automatic when her own thoughts wouldn't form. Had she the dexterity to wound herself further, she'd have Shifted on the spot, regardless of any collateral.
Every day is a million new chances to mess something up, and that couldn't be more exciting.

"Absolutely, ma'am," Julian said, reaching out a hand for her. When on board, he shifted the Colonel to his shoulder and bade her hang on as he ran across to the situation and then let her down. He watched as the Doctor worked.

"Good. You can hear me then." Lightfoot nods approvingly, rolling Tigress into the recovery position as she coughs and making sure her airway is clear.
"That's it. Get it all out. Everyone, stand well clear. She'll Shift up in a moment, I hope. But she may not be able to control it." the hare warns. An idea occurs to him as he remembers his discussion in his office with Mist. He puts on a pair of gloves and pulls a lancet and an alcohol swab from his bag.
"I hope this works." he mutters to himself, swabbing one of Tigress' fingertips.
"Everyone clear? That includes you, Colonel." he cautions before pricking the stricken Zoomorph's sterilised fingerpad and watching the blood bead. He drops the lancet into a sharps container in his medical bag, then grabs the bag and runs backwards to join the rest of the group.
"Shift, Tigress! I know you can hear me! Shift if you can!"

~~~~~~~~
Ryan opens his mouth to reply to the dragon when the phone rings.
"Hello? Ah, wonderful, thanks! We'll be right down!" Hanging up the phone, the otter reaches for his phone and wallet.
"That was Lorraine, the gazelle down in reception. Pizza's here. I'll be right back." he says, crossing to the lift and pressing the button. The doors open immediately.

Heather nods at the doctor and retreats backwards. She threw her hand back and launched a cable from her wrist. It latched onto one of the fake buildings, then started pulling Heather up. Her body lurched, and she flew through the air towards the building, away from Tigress before the Kaiju could shift.

"Bet you I can get there first!" Wildfire said, jumping to his feet and making his way out to the balcony. The dragon jumped up and perched on the balcony rails. "See you down there, Ryan! Hah!"

With that, Wildfire leaned back and allowed himself to fall off of the balcony. He rocketed down the face of the building, feeling the wind in his hair and against his scales. When he was about halfway down the building, he opened his wings to catch the rushing air. His descent slowed, and he started gliding, spiraling down. He swooped and soared in circles as the parking lot below got closer, before finally going in for a landing. He put his legs forward, then hit the ground at a jog. Wildfire's wings folded back against his back, and he walked into the front door of the building into the lobby.

Simply rolling his eyes and giving a slight chuckle, Mordecai stood up from the couch and followed Ryan to the elevator, wallet in hand. "Never understood why many kaiju liked to do that. Oh well." he said to Ryan.

"Shift, Tigress! I know you can hear me! Shift if you can!"
The Raksasi's frozen form remains practically motionless for another moment, breath freezing once more as the Ruin restricts her. Then the doctor's shout rings out. With jagged, almost unnatural movements Tigress lunges awkwardly to her feet, swaying in her stance with her head hung and stance basically propping her upright in lieu of any actual balance. With what remains in her lungs she looses a hoarse, wordless shout, giving a gradual start to the cracking noises that accompany her Shifting. Though the normally rapid speed is greatly inhibited by both her pool rigidity and the Ruin's detriment, she does eventually retake her full size, complete with a deep gasp and near immediate collapse onto her knees.

Her first reaction is to search for Mist - her attention sweeps across the ground until she notices his field off in the distance, his look of mild concern completely invisible from range. Still, the sight of him moving and calmed is enough to stave off immediate panic, so she returns to testing her own ability. Several more coughs interrupt any attempt at communication before the 'Rogue' finally responds "W-hugh- Well... aren't we just... FULL of surprises?", her gaze locked on the ground until she stands again. With a quick stretch upwards, her movements once more fluid and (semi-)graceful, she looks to the crowd and solemnly adds "Three near-death experiences in... maybe two hours?" Tigress takes a deep breath, running her hands over her head and brushing back her ears before suddenly breaking into a fit of laughter. "Are haan, feels like home!"

Julian watched in concern at first, then in something approaching relief and amusement as Tigress reacted to the Doctor's ministrations. "I think your mother's going to enjoy it here, Mist. Not sure if that's good or bad," he finished.

Gregg shifted away so that Lightfoot had space to work, though he kept a worried eye on the Rakshasi. He shifts anxiously from one foot to another as the doctor tends to her. Giving an excited start after watching her move again doesn't stop his nervous shifting, but it doesn't pull his ears up off of his shoulders where they had been. Once the doctor pricks her finger and everyone's moved back he watches intently at the prone figure. As Tigress stands up Gregg breathes a sigh of relief, very glad to have not killed anyone today, though the speed of her transformation does give him some pause; however once she starts speaking again, he finally realizes that all is well yet again. "S-S-She seems a little too comfortable with the idea of three near death experiences in a fewer amount of hours. Also feels like home... How interesting..."

"I'm glad you're feeling better." Lightfoot's left head says as the hare approaches Tigress once she's fully shifted and on her paws.
"Just keep taking deep breaths for me, maybe cough a few times, okay? We want to get all that gas out of you." he instructs.
"Can I just check your pulse, please, Tigress?" the middle head asks. "I'll just need to hold your paw for a few seconds while I put my fingers on your wrist. Nothing scary. Colonel, can you time fifteen seconds for me, please?" the doctor stops beside the rakshasa and holds out his paw but makes no move to actually touch her, remembering her reactions from his previous examination in his office.

~~~~~~~~
"If you had wings, wouldn't you want to use them?" Ryan asks simply as the elevator doors shut and the car begins its descent.
"You know, I didn't really make it clear before, but the fingerprint scanner in the call button isn't just for showing off, just by the way. You have to remember that this lift is mine and Ted's front door so the scanner is our equivalent of a key. Without it, anyone could just walk into our apartment unannounced. Which would suck and could be dangerous." the otter points out.
"Anyway, here we are. I bet Wildfire's already eaten half the pizza." he jokes as the car slows to a stop and the doors open.

"If I had wings, I wouldn't be a Tikbalang; I'd be a Pegasus," Mordecai replied surprisingly serious in tone as he followed Ryan out the doors, "And I hope he hasn't. I haven't eat much all day and I've been in the mood for some proper food."

"If you wanted proper food then why did you order Dominos?" Ryan quips immediately, scanning the lobby in search of Wildfire and the delivery person.

Mordecai just shot a 'really?' look at Ryan, tempted to smack him in the head for that comment but deciding not to as he'd probably knock him out. Instead, he just snorted some air out and headed over to where the delivery person was waiting, handing him the cash along with a pretty nice sized tip before taking the food from them and looking over at Ryan and Wildfire, "Shall we head back up?"

The shadow being quickly leans down to snatch something off the ground, pushing himself upright to call back to Julian with an air of annoyance. "And yet it took months to get her to allow this as a birthday present." Mist gives a quick shake of his head, once more making his way to the group of Kaiju.

Tigress's excited smile dips immediately, a subtly hurt expression on her face. "Look Mist, I don't think I'm out of line in saying a seventeen-year-old shouldn't be in this city's new pet army. I can get behind bloodlust, but getting killed for a city that hates you seems stupid." His stance flickers, any form of expression buried under the darkness, but the surprise and defensive nature to it is clear. Tigress watches him silently struggle between a loyal rebuttal or a direct personal attack, but the moment passes in silence.

"I'm glad you're feeling better." Lightfoot's left head says as the hare approaches Tigress once she's fully shifted and on her paws.
"Just keep taking deep breaths for me, maybe cough a few times, okay? We want to get all that gas out of you." he instructs.
"Can I just check your pulse, please, Tigress?" the middle head asks. "I'll just need to hold your paw for a few seconds while I put my fingers on your wrist. Nothing scary.

Both ears flick back as the doctor comes near with her head following soon after. His questions are met with only a lost expression at first, then a shrug as she holds the right hand out. Tigress turns her head to the other side, inhaling quickly only to pause and begin a soft coughing fit. While the coughs have a deeper raspiness to the sound, nothing else escapes from her coat or exhalations. With a shrug she answers "Eh, it'll probably come out when I shift down." A beat passes before her attention snaps back to the doctor's treatment, sudden gratitude to her voice. "Oh, good work with that whole... event, though. The needle and everything. Quick thinking."

As Mist finally finishes his approach, tossing his mother's retrieved outfit to the ground at her feet, he catches the tail end of Gregg's musings. In a deliberately hushed tone he replies "She has thousands of stories about life in the clan." Mist gives a single laugh, a note of sarcasm to his remarks. "You should ask what her favorite part of Crater City is later. She always says there's only one reason she prefers it over the clan."

"Can't say I think the city hates us, Tigress," Julian said when he got the chance. "Like myself it fears us because of what we can do. Often what we do do. It's courage to stand and say 'what I can do isn't what I will do'. That's what he's doing." He sighed lightly. "Glad you're O.K., by the way."

"S-S-Sounds interesting. I'm sure there'll have to be some sort of mental preparation for her reasoning," Gregg chuckles as he moved closer to Tigress. "U-U-Uh, sorry about that..." He begins, looking everywhere except directly at her. "D-D-Didn't know that would happen since it usually doesn't with other people, or sentient creatures for that matter..."

Wildfire, realizing that he really wasn't needed down here after all, decided to give the delivery driver a massive tip so he didn't feel silly for coming down. He handed a $50 bill to the driver, then started stepping back out of the lobby and into the open air. "See you guys up top!" Wildfire said to Ryan and Mordecai. He squatted down outside, folding his wings tight against his side, then jumped. He rocketed skyward, then opened his wings and beat them down to get more height.

"Now that everything has calmed down..." Heather started saying from her position atop one of the fake skyscrapers. "Does anyone know what exactly happened?"

With a dismissive wave Tigress retorts "Then I don't want my son dying for a city I hate.", a moment passing before the kind sentiment reaches her. It disarms her, leaving only a quizzical expression for a final response.

He begins, looking everywhere except directly at her. "D-D-Didn't know that would happen since it usually doesn't with other people, or sentient creatures for that matter..."
Gregg's approach distracts the Raksasi from her confusion, though the curiosity doesn't fade until he finishes speaking. Her gaze sharpens suddenly, fangs flashing as she crouches down somewhat and growls her reply. "Wolfman, you look me in the <^^|^^> eyes and listen close. You managed a painless victory against a mighty Yasal warrior who's been undefeated for the last twenty or so years, so do me a favor and show some pride in that fact." One soft laugh escapes her as the fake grimace turns to a subtle grin. "Sure, I'm not a fan of the way you did it, but that just means I have something worth training against. So celebrate while you can!" She commands eagerly, a challenging smile and a quick poke at his chest given before she stands back to her full height.

"Now that everything has calmed down..." Heather started saying from her position atop one of the fake skyscrapers. "Does anyone know what exactly happened?"
There's a shared glance between the family members as Tigress tries to get Mist into the conversation, but he responds with a confused shrug. With the portal's dislocation, he'd been far from the action when Tigress fell and didn't see much throughout. Other than a small groan, she's compliant, and Mist's attention is locked on her throughout her quick analysis. "Basically Gregg here is the perfect counter to my powers. I can't fight at range without energy, and his smoke thing is Ruin." She gives Mist another glance to check for a sign of success and he quickly adds in his own information, automatically reaching for the notebook in the vest he isn't wearing.

"Mom's a Shield-class Yaksas, so her Aura pools - the collection of stored energy in her control - are very quick to absorb surrounding energy. She can choose to open them to release it back as a weapon, but since she doesn't make extra energy naturally it isn't a reliable power. Every time she shifts up she loses her stored energy as the pools restructure to grow, and when she shifts down she loses the excess physical Ruin energy as a roundabout form of healing. So... he got you shifted down?" Mist asks, getting a quick nod in response. "So it would've been absorbed at a far more rapid rate than any other Auric being, Kaiju or otherwise. But since you were shifted down, your Life pool was smaller, and with Ruin being the Void counter of Life energy it turned your Life into Void, which... would've faded away over the next few minutes until the remaining Ruin killed you on the spot."

"Any questions?" Tigress chirps back to the commander. "Even at that size it'd take a good bit more to take me out, don't worry. The stars are just against me today. That stuff probably would've blown away before the Void in my pool unlocked anyway."
Every day is a million new chances to mess something up, and that couldn't be more exciting.

"U-U-Uh, alright... I guess I can take some pride in that," Gregg says, as his initial shock at nearly killing her wore off. "I-I-I'll try to keep my tactics up to date with your training so I don't lag too far behind," he said, doing his best at a grin. Quieting down as she continued, his ears flicked forwards as his attention shifted towards hers and Mist's explanations. "S-S-Soo... I essentially replaced your life essence with...death. I guess that would make sense. Also makes sense that nonliving or dead things crumble away." Gregg pauses. "Am I just slowly killing people?" He asks himself, though by his tone it's unclear whether it's out of curiosity or concern.
