"City Counsel was adamant about not wanting Kaiju running around with skyscraper-sized weapons in the city."
Fenrir answered. "That said, we'll be outside of city limits. I think there are some older Kaiju weapons down this way, assuming the Counsel didn't have them cleared out."
The wolf took the next turn and ran into an open chamber. Sure enough, there were some objects there that could be considered weapons, though clearly quite simple or even improvised. "Let's see... we've got a hammer made of bundled I-Beams welded to a tank. A spear made from an entire redwood tree with a piece of an icebreaker's hull attached to the tip, and a pair of swords that, now that I look closer, seem to actually be airplane wings that are reinforced and fixed to giant handles."
Carefully navigating the corner, Tigress wandered into the impromptu armory nearly blind. The limitations he had mentioned didn't disappoint her, considering she'd never actually had a weapon capable of use at her full size before anyway. Basic smithing was the extent of the Yaksas weaponry, and she'd spent more time with a shortbow than anything else thanks to the many hunting trips. She waits as her guide describes the weapons, silently thankful, though she understood little more than the ideas of the weapons he gestured to. "Beats nothing."
Her first priority was the labeled hammer, a tool she had more recent experience with. Deftly it swings in her hand, then is returned with a soft "hmmf"
. The I-Beams disturbed her grip and the head wasn't hefty enough. Probably better used by someone who holds it in their mouth and short-hafts it.
The spear actually manages to displace her as she forces it into her hands, the ungainly height a surprise. It was plenty tall. Provided the edge held, it tracked with her experience and knee-jerk plan of pinning it into the ground. And with time short, good enough was the best she was looking for. "Alright! I'll have to talk to someone about finding something a little sharper later, but I can make do with this. Maybe take one of the snake's fangs or something."
She announces, giving the weapon a thrust into the air before sweeping it back behind her. It nearly slips from her grasp, but her quick reaction manages to recover it against her side with only a moment of awkwardness. "Stupid backwards thumbs. Let's move."

Ted offers Mist an IV bag to hold up without looking at him. A moment later he realises who'd asked.
"Maybe. Remember how you healed me in my office? Think you could do that again, but maybe bounce it back at this guy instead?"
he asks the cat as he continues to work.
The rookie receives the bag automatically, gingerly manipulating it so he can look for some label of what odd liquid was within. This idle activity stops immediately with the note of He remembered. He knows.
jumping into his thoughts, causing him to shake his head quickly as he tries to dislodge the suspicion. His silence presses him to speak, finally making eye contact with the Doctor. "Ah-yeah-it'll... If you do it with your hands, I just- I can put my hand on yours and it'll use all this that's on me. I'm - I'm really charged right now though, so just - start really slow, it's... it's like a multiplier. Not adding."
He falls to whispers, peeking back to check on the lashing of his tail that alerts him to his roiling Aura. He didn't know what over
healing looked like, but with his luck, he was about to find out. Shifting the bag into his offhand, he kneels down to the injured party -

Heather called. "Good, I see you're helping the doctor, but once you're done there it's all hands on deck. The mole and the hunters have been caught, and the base is no longer locked down. However, we've received and confirmed reports of two Kaiju threatening the city. An Elder Kaiju known as Pestilence is approaching from the East, and a 10 kilometer long Leviathan is approaching from the ocean in West. Your mother is on her way to the Coast with a Kaiju known as Fenrir. They're going to attempt to repel the Leviathan. Others will join them down by the coast. You can join her there, or you can join Julian and Ferman - the Cerberus you met - down in South Town as they get people to shelters, or you can join Fenrir and your mother by the coast."
She puts a hand on his shoulder. "I'm sorry for what happened. I never should have let you go into that room. But I need you to be strong. There will be time to take a breath soon, but now is not that time."
Mist gasps audibly as his name is shouted, searching wildly for the source despite the familiar voice. As Heather continues and is identified the alarm ceases, leaving him merely tensed as he listens, his gaze flicking between the Doctor and Heather every few seconds. As she approaches she gets his full attention, a violent flinch in reaction to the contact, though he manages to stop himself from trying to tear away from her grip. Clearly, she meant no harm. But the contact and the claustrophobic feeling rising rapidly as the two strangers addressed him was hard to disguise, his breath forcefully managed. "I'm fine. I'm-I'm perfect, don't worry!"
He lies automatically. His head turns completely away from her, towards the mangled Roc. Obviously, she wouldn't believe him, but she probably needed him to say that so she could leave him alone. Same as the teachers. That sight did not calm his nerves, somehow, leading him to merely close his eyes completely and hold a blind, softly trembling hand a ways above the body. "Can we - please - can we just do this I need to go, I need to help Mom."
He whispers breathlessly.
