"OK..." he grunted as he stood himself up, some blood dripping from his mouth, "That was...pretty good..." Hawk struggled for a bit to steady himself but, before long, all the pain and blood had vanished from his body. His eyes now blood red, a small toothy smile crossed his face as he looked at the dent behind then at the Titan as his body slowly began to become that of his Other Side. A metallic-like skin began to take over his entire body. His hands became claws sharper then any knife known to anyone. Within seconds, Hawk was no-more as, standing before everyone watching the training and the Titan, was the Other Side of him: A metallic lycan-like beast that spread fear into anyone who saw it. The Other-Side smiled, its sharp teeth shining in the light, as it growls before uttering at the Titan, "My turn." Then, in one what could describe as a fully armored battleship going into war, the Other Side lunged towards the Titan and began digging its claws into their armor with malcontent.
Titan was once again completely unfazed. If Hawk was a battleship, Titan was evidently Starkiller base. Titan raised one hand across their chest, then swung it backwards at Hawk's face as he approached.
The impact sent shockwaves reverberating throughout the training room. Hawk would find himself embedded even deeper into the same crater in the wall he had just pulled himself out of.

Ken, SPECIAL ATTACK: ADORABLENESS!" Ken walks up close to Titan and sits down, wagging his tail and panting, Brad waits.
Titan looked down at the dog, tilting their head. The champion appeared to be trying to gauge the sort of threat the dog posed, and was trying to determine how much strength to use. Determining that the dog did not have any super durability like Hawk did, she simply reached down, picked Ken up with both hands, and carried him over to the edge of the battlefield to drop him off out of the way.

Hivemind shrugged. "Very well. I'll leave you alone. Have a nice day, and if you need anything, don't hesitate to ask."
he said. Hivemind backed up away from the door and started making his way down the street to see if anyone else needed help.
Welsh Halfwit wrote:"I'll get him but keep him out of the way until you say," Messalca decided, feeling the need to do SOMETHING. "Always wise to have an emergency back up." She headed towards the station.
Messalca would, upon entering the station, see the robot was missing. In it's place was what appeared to be a teenaged Celican boy, lying on a cot in the open cell and staring at the ceiling. His expression was hard to read, but he looked to be deep in thought. The deputies in charge of watching Legion wore distinct looks of distress and discomfort as they glanced sideways at the teenager.
Welsh Halfwit wrote:Upon hearing the beep, Sana headed back to her computer and linked it to her wrist tablet for the next communications. I've been asked by Agent Miles to give him a prelim job interview. Any chance of doing that here? she typed and sent.
Hivemind, once again, replied immediately. [He is currently in interrogation. Cooperative or not, it would be inappropriate for me to allow contact with anyone but his lawyer until the interrogation is complete. When he is released, if he is released, then and only then may you arrange to speak with him.]
Welsh Halfwit wrote:"He IS more forgiving than most people I've tried to kill," Hannabelle admitted, wondering how she was going to explain their first meeting to the Cubs. "Let's go join his tour."
Gear said, nodding. "More people have tried to kill 'im than me, an' I was a professional assassin. Ya aren't the first to try an' stab 'im, and ya ain't gonna be the last."
Gear lead the way down the street, holding Hannabelle's hand as they went. It took a few minutes to reach the house, as it was a few blocks away from the train station they were starting from. When they got there, Gear stepped up to the door and rang the doorbell.
Welsh Halfwit wrote:"I know I haven't eaten anyo..."
"Thing," Corvis corrected, not looking at his older brother, rapt in the figurine.
"I know, I know," Golen protested, "I MEANT anything!" He primped himself and tried again. "I know I haven't eaten anything today."
"Awake five minutes and putting his footpads in it already," Jenevive said, shaking her head.
The Lycan laughed. "I was about to say something along those lines myself. Anyway, if none of you have eaten, we can start with-"
The Lycan was interrupted when his daughter tapped him on the shoulder with her real hand. "Dad, Gear is coming up the walkway with someone else. Celican female, by the feel of it."
She said. Seconds later, the doorbell rang.
Hivemind stepped into the Genemod lab in order to check on the status of Kobor and Talya. He watched them to see if there was any reaction to his presence.

She said pointing at his face. "We'll figure out how to get you out of him and put you behind bars. Because we are Champions, and that's what we do! Now, sorry Kolt.." She finished before reeling back a fist and striking not-Kolt hard and fast in the stomach, trying to wind him.
Once Archangel was in the fray, Recon ran over to Traci. "Traci! Go get Kol! She's down and needs medical attention!"
Recon ordered. "I need to get this thing away from the fight and to the nearest hive bot!"
With that, Recon bolted off again, heading in the direction of the Twm.

I have persevered through far worse situations than this, and I will do it again once all of you are under my heel!
Legotron123 wrote:Even as Kolt struggled to deal with the pain of having several years worth of memories shoved into his head, he still managed to let out a small laugh. Y-you think you can win this? Your way out is b-broken, Hivemind is going to keep sending reinforcements till you’re dealt with, and you are CLEARLY l-letting your anger get out of hand. You’re going to lose, you’re going to go into the weird d-d-data prison Hivemind has, and I’m going to go on with my day, like nothing. Ever. HAPPENED. He taunted, still sounding confident despite stuttering from the pain.
Ko Sah responded. As confident as his words sound, it is rather clear he was growing annoyed with the current situation. Ko Sah formed a heavy, solid wall out of telekinetic power and threw it straight at Archangel. The champion kept walking forward until it was upon him, but instead of dodging out of the way, Archangel raised a fist and struck the wall, hard.
Archangel's fist went straight through the wall and shattered it, causing the pieces to dissipate and Ko Sah to reel backwards. The very slightest hint of panic appeared in his eyes, and he took a step backward, launching a telekinetic spike at Archangel's chest. It struck against his breastplate and pierced through his armor, but once more the construct shattered upon striking his skin.
Ko Sah was getting desperate, stepping outside of the hotel. Archangel followed, picking up the pace. Ko Sah tried grabbing him and throwing him back with telekinesis, but Archangel powered through. Ko Sah tried shoving him down to the ground, but Archangel's legs adjusted and he kept up the pursuit. He tried throwing Archangel into the air, and managed to succeed, only to find that Archangel was still flying towards him at an accelerating rate.
Finally, as a last, desperate attempt, Ko Sah reached out telekinetically and pulled a power line from it's pole, throwing it at Archangel. The champion didn't see it in time to react, and the power line struck him. Intense, high power electricity shot through Archangel's body, causing his muscles to seize up. He twitched and convulsed, and his hair stood on end while the wire was latched to his arm. Eventually, Archangel collapsed onto the ground, unable to gain control over his muscles.
Realizing that this worked, Ko Sah grinned. He raised the high-voltage wire up over Archangel's heart, preparing to deliver what he hoped would be a fatal shock.
"We'll talk about this later."
Welsh Halfwit wrote:Jenny twitched as Quint spoke to her, detailing his thoughts on her plans as Gadgeteer shouted in her face. It almost gave the impression she wasn't listening to him before she spoke. "An error made due to lack of information," she said. "Advise everyone who has a helmet on to go comms only," she added coldly and calmly, "I'll keep it focussed but it's gonna be noisy in five seconds." So saying she stepped outside and brought her hands together HARD in Ko Sah's(Kolt's) Direction. And she held them together to focus a sonic cone attack on him alone, ready to cut off if he defleted and change the angle if he moved. Her annoyance with Gadgeteer and herself helped but she needed this to work quickly as she was dressed for breakfast, not battle.
Saffy was quite glad to be a little way back from the fighting. And hungry. She didn't know if that was her or Gadgeteer though.
Gadgeteer growled. He ran over and picked Saffy and her father, hurrying to put them into the food truck's passenger seat and driver's seat respectively where they couldn't see the carnage in the truck's trailer. Once the two of them were secure, Gadgeteer grabbed the front of the truck and started running, towing the truck behind him away from the warzone and away from the sonic blast. He had managed to get about half a block before Jenny's attack went off.
Ko Sah turned and noticed what Jenny was doing. He shifted his focus and blocked the sonic attack with ease, though he lost his grip on the power cable and dropped it on the ground in the process. "Come on, Jenny, surely you're smarter than to think you-"
Neon Icy Wings wrote:Tatiana tried to dodge the attack but was unable to, which led to the spike crashing through the right side of her helmet and Tatiana crashing to the ground. She groaned, her voice coming out as a string of glitched syllables as her vision flickered. She struggled slightly to kneeling on one knee, as anger and annoyance flooded through her. Through her flickering vision Tatiana lined up her sights with the body snatcher and charged a plasma blast, waiting, coldly, for a moment when his attention would be consumed towards someone before firing.
Deske wrote:Chris clapped mentally as the flashbang went off, "Fantastic shot." He lined up a shot with the impulse cannon and pulled the trigger once it was clear enough.
Welsh Halfwit wrote:"Ab...solutely, Q," Jenny strained as the vibrations began in her arms. If it's working and I pass out before he does," she thought, gritting her teeth, You'll need to take over. Aloud, she called to Gadgeteer on comms. "If this works, Gadge," she said, her voice shaking tremulously, as she kept the cone of shrill noise going, "someone'll need to... catch him."
- - - - -
"I have to get the civilians out of there."
Gadgeteer responded over the team comms. "Tatiana, if he falls, make sure Kolt doesn't get hurt."

Tatiana's shot tore straight through Ko Sah's ear, tearing a good-sized chunk out of it. Then MT's concussive blast struck right next to him, sending him reeling to the ground. His shield dropped, and Jenny's sonic blast washed over him unrestricted. The sound of the attack drowned out Ko Sah's screams of agony as he desperately clutched his ears to muffle the sound. He could feel his hold on Kolt slipping. He was going to loose his host once again. He would be shamed and humiliated worse than before. Nobody would see that his failure before was a fluke. They wouldn't ever know it was a one-off if he failed to bring Kolt in a second time. His vision was growing fuzzy, and he looked around for an opportunity. He found one.
Ko Sah reached out, grabbed a tree at the edge of the parking lot, and uprooted it with all of the strength he could muster. He threw the tree straight at Jenny's back, and it crashed down upon her, pinning her down. With the sonic attack silenced, Ko Sah stood up. He cloaked himself in a shield and stared at Jenny with absolute hatred in his eyes. Ko Sah marched forward, crossing the parking lot. He said nothing. His silence, in the wake of his outgoing demeanor during the fight, spoke volumes. The fight had changed, and he was going to end it. Even if he had to end her. Ko Sah formed a wicked, barbed blade at the end of his arm, wearing it like a gauntlet as he got closer to Jenny.
One less potential host is a small price to pay for his honor.
