[ Her voice is surprisingly level, reserved if not a bit detached. She refrains from turning on the video function for quite a few reasons. ]

I just received word from father. My brother, Garen, has gone missing. No one has seen him for weeks, since before the Enhanced incident. I recall him talking about doing some traveling outside of Union...

If anyone has seen him, or heard from him in the last few months, please, tell me. He's hard to miss. He's tall, stocky, has brown hair and is most often seen either in full armor or wearing either a Swords uniform or some kind of Crownguard insignia on his person.


[ There's a long, heavy pause as she tries to think of the words to say. ]

That is all. Thank you very much for your time.


Feliks, could I speak with you? If you have the time, of course.


[ Throughout the week, the young blond can be found in a bit of a fog around the city. Moving about her usual haunts--the library, the university, the Seekers headquarters--something seems off about her. She's jumpy, easily distracted, and generally a bit out of sorts. Half the time she doesn't seem to even look where she is going, and may be found bumping into others, or dropping things. ]

[If anyone is out and about by the Habitat, you'll see a Snorunt running around with a Dawn Stone in her hands, being closely followed by a Growlithe that looks rather annoyed and a Bulbasaur that thinks this is all a game. Suddenly, the Snorunt—known by a few as Mitsuru Kirijo's Skadi—holds the Dawn Stone up and evolves into a Froslass.

The other two Pokémon pause to stare, a little confused as to what just happened, but when the Growlithe gets closer, Skadi sniffs and floats away, leading her friends towards the city gates. What is she really up to?

Meanwhile, Mitsuru is leaving the Habitat, some ideas running through her mind as she looks around for her errant Pokémon.]

Skadi? Koromaru? Gabriel? Where are you three?

[When a cursory look doesn't turn up her friends, she begins searching harder, seeming very nonplussed at pulling back dead bushes and checking snow banks as if this were an everyday occurrence. It is.

Please pay no mind to the girl in her skirt and boots out in the cold with no coat, looking in the snow. Nothing to see. Honestly.]

Skadi. Where are you? Koro-chan? Gabriel, I have a blanket for you.

--Yeah, yeah. I know that already.

[It would seem that Union was being treated to a fragmented conversation that the feed had suddenly started right in the middle of. No faces could be seen on screen yet, save for a gloved hand and the hemline of a white jacket. Off screen, a stern, feminine voice could be heard delivering a severe reminder about all of the paperwork that should have been done weeks ago, and how it was irresponsible of him to not have introduced himself to the rest of the community yet.

The owner of the gloved hand could be heard chuckling.]

And my family'd be ashamed of me too, right? [Then, the feed started to move as he continued in a more brisk tone.] Don't worry 'bout it, okay? I'm working on it right now. C'mon, J.

[But what about the--

The voice was promptly cut off by the sound of a door clicking shut, followed by a sigh. Then, the face of a young man with brilliant green eyes came fully into view on the feed. He offered an apologetic smile for the audience.]

Sorry about that. Some girls can really be demanding.

[There was a subtle rumble that was suddenly audible on the feed-- those who understood Pokespeak would recognize it as a quiet reminder from someone off screen. 'Daisuke. You're stalling.']

What? J, not you too!

[The blond at least had the foresight now to share the screen with his pokemon-- an inscrutable looking Beldum who was strangely clad in a brimmed hat and scarf. The humming continued. 'A man shouldn't try the patience of his coworkers or his audience.'

Daisuke sighed-- and actively closed out the feed.]


[Later, people wandering through the downtown might find a slender blond man in a crisp white jacket hanging around the streetside food stands near the theater, nonchalantly scarfing down a bowl of noodles as if he had all the time in the world. But, don't let the ease of his manner fool you-- he's definitely paying attention to what's happening around him.

As for the rather fashionable Beldum? He's hanging around...somewhere. Daisuke isn't sure, but he suspects that the Beldum has taken to visiting the theater for reasons that only he would know.]

With the revelation of the presence of the Enhanced, Union was able to quickly mobilize. As the strange conditions continued to worsen, the Trainers of Union once again set out to bring order to the chaos.

This time however, they do not walk entirely alone. A small, dedicated team remains behind in Union, sorting through the dossiers and information that Crystal and Rory have collected. Connected to those in the field via Warp Band network, hopefully they can identify the Enhanced and find a way to calm them before a tragedy occurs.

[OOC: There will be a thread for each active team based on the sign-ups. Any areas that did not have any sign-ups will not be present and will be addressed later. As per our usual standards, moderators and NPC helpers will progress the log at least once every 24 hours. The Union log will work somewhat differently from the battle logs in that the participants will be collecting information concerning the Enhanced; when enough information has been accumulated, they will be asked to tag into the battle threads to provide guidance and support to those out in the field.

Characters participating in the Union log will function as support staff for this event. They will have their own log interacting with Rory and Crystal and as characters in other logs encounter the Enhanced, they can use the observations made to try to find out more about the Enhanced in the field and help the people in the field determine an appropriate situation. Because of this, players in the Union thread may threadjack any ongoing log to relay information as needed.

The outcome of this event will depend very much on player decisions and the ability of the characters to respond to the threats at hand, so we would highly encourage you all to tag as regularly as possible. Thanks!]

[ Not even remotely private. She actually wants this to be seen by their guests. ]

Has anyone ventured out into the afflicted areas yet? What have you been able to find? I've been considering going out myself, despite the warnings from the Rangers and the "good timing" of our guests from Team Evolution.

I can't help but think that the two are related--the strange goings on and TeVo's sudden appearance--but I can't put my finger on how. Could they be causing it? They aren't drawing attention to what's going on, so on one hand I can believe it, but on the other... They did help us in Caldera. They're being way too quiet, I can't figure it out.

Anyway, I'm thinking about going out to the Forest Shrine in the next day or so, to take some samples of the affected plant life. I shouldn't be gone for more than a day or two. Is there anyone interested in going? I say this too because-- [ Mm, she's not sure it's that dangerous, but... ] If I'm not back in a few days, I might need some assistance.

[An older, white haired man with a push-broom mustache appears, somewhat out of frame, the footage recorded at a odd angle]

"Hello?" Gordon asks. "Hello? Is this thing working?"

[The video goes a little warbly, nicotine stained fingers occasionally obstructing the view, as if the warp band is being adjusted inexpertly. The sound of a Pokémon being summoned is heard off screen.]


[Gordon lets out the wordless grumble of an elder trying not to swear, and turns to yell off the side of the screen.]

"Barbara! I think I broke this stupid thing!"

[A beat, with a feminine voice heard, muffled by distance.]

"I'm trying to send that video thing," Gordon says, leaning back as a feminine, youthful hand comes briefly into frame, the video getting briefly worse, badly garbling something the feminine voice says, and then clearing up.]

"Okay, right. Uh, hello?" Gordon says, looking with frustration at the gadget. "This is James Gordon, and my daughter tells me, now that I have one of these bands, I should post a--"

[Gordon is cut off by a Squirtle face filling the screen, making some faces before Gordon pushes him out of the way.]

"Mike! Stop. Go bother Barbara. She should be feeding Rex."

[Gordon waits, watching something off camera leave, quickly from the looks of it.]

"Right. Where was I? James Gordon, newly bonded. Hello."

[Morning, Crownguard Residence]

[The sensation of waking up to his entire body feeling like it has gone numb was rather alarming - but thankfully it passed quickly and he goes to examine himself.

Good he's not in Feliks' body for some inexpliciable reason again. Bad - his hair has gotten even longer overnight, and it felt like touching freshly groomed mareep wool, or cottonbee fluff. It appears there's a constant thunderstorm in his eyes - and rubbing his forehead reveals a red gem now exists there, looking very much like an ampharos' jewel. And he just felt Stronger and quicker, as though he had been intensely training his body.

Ky stopped examining himself, and goes to get change to run some errands]

[Public, Marketplace]

I said they're not yours!

[Ky had himself an armful of wrapped and double-bagged items, presents for Salvation, and he's been for the last several minutes side-stepping and weaving away from the reaching grasp of his Venusaur's vine whips, while his Ampharos is playing with a Luvdisc doll that had suddenly appeared in their bedroom]

But I want them!

They're presents for others - I already got gifts for you all, so please don't try to take these ones.

Gimme! Gimme!

Jacob. Just stop.

Ky, Ky! Look at this - Lux might like this!

[The Ampharos waves, pointing at a display of charms, waving the winking Luvdisc doll around]

Hmm? Let's take a look.

[While Ky looks, Jacob takes advantage and snatches one of the gifts, intending to open it right then an there]

((ooc: the Luvdisc doll has an Attract effect that is entirely optional to play with))

Who: Luke, Asch ([personal profile] albertstyle), and you!
What: After almost 2 months, the twins return from the wastes.
Where: Just inside Union's gates.
When: 09/12, around 9AM

[He was tired, hungry, and still kind of scared when they finally saw the city on the horizon. It felt like a mirage, but it was all he could do to hope that they had finally made it home. Once they'd become lost, Luke and Asch had been forced to survive with only the help of their Pokemon and their Shifter forms. For two spoiled, pampered young men it had been more than difficult. At least, in their Pokemon bodies, they had a bit of instinct and were able to survive. This had also forced them to evolve. Once Fennekin, when the two twins finally arrived at Union they were bigger, taller... Two identical Braixen with curiously green eyes entered the city, looking skinny and beaten up, their fur scruffy and unwashed. Unhostile, the Guard let them pass through and they wandered inside, Luke feeling almost apprehensive.]

{We're actually home... can you believe it?}

[The twins had never quite gotten the hang of changing back and forth from their Shifted forms, so they've been stuck like this for quite a while. It would be simpler to change back and make a beeline for the Fabre estate, but while they were still unsure of how to change back it was difficult. At least, this time, they could climb steps. Luke looked at his twin, almost unsure... Over the course of the months he'd gotten quieter, listened more. He had relied on Asch to get them out of the trouble he'd put them into. His loud mouth had been quieted, at least for the time being. They were home, and that was what mattered. Hopefully, they would run into someone they knew on their way back to the mansion to help explain what was going on. The last time they had returned as Pokemon hadn't been very pleasant.]

{ooc: Asch and Luke are back! They've evolved into two scruffy Braixen and are back home after 2 months spent surviving outside of Union. Asch and Luke will both be replying as we go, so have fun!}

[Someone's dressed in a cute sweater, hat and general winter gear!

It's not actually Lux, it's Camille, who looks sullen about the whole thing. Cute clothes do not make cold weather better.

Lux, however, is still in what look to be Seeker work robes.]

It's snowing outside! I'm actually pretty excited about it, even if I can't get out of work right now to look at it, because that means the salvation holiday is coming up, and the end of the year! And I really like snow, but that's beside the point.

My family is having their annual salvation and new year party at the end of the year--and, well, my birthday I guess--

[She can't really avoid it, although she does smile and chuckle a little shyly.]

But anyway, for the first time, we've managed to maneuver it to be relatively open to the public! You just need an invitation from myself or from Ezreal. Don't ask about that, it's really complicated. But anyway, if you want to come, let me know and I'll be sure to take care of it.


Oh, right! There's something else exciting going on, but I can't really talk about it yet. That's why I've been so busy lately, so I'm sorry that I've been a little hard to get a hold of.

[Another pause.]

Although I probably shouldn't have said that, because now everyone's going to be curious. Whoops.

[GJ Lux, Camille gives her a deadpan look before the feed ends.]

Hello, Jayce? I need a favor from you, are you busy? I can pay you.

[When the video starts, Mei looks a little unimpressed. She's here on a mission, though.]

I was wondering if anyone has seen a Klefki roaming about. He's...likely still in Ninetales Vale somewhere. It's also very probable that some of you may be missing keys.

[She certainly is.]

In that case, I apologize. If anyone happens to find him, please contact me so I can retrieve him.


[Sure enough, there is indeed a mischievous little Klefki floating around Ninetales Vale and...appropriating any keys that happen to be unattended. Some may be on his key ring, the others...the world may never know. He is the only one worthy of being the keymaster.

There can be only one.

He could be in your house, hanging around in a shop, watching and waiting for someone to set their keys down, or simply looking for a suitable place to dump keys that are unworthy of being displayed on his ring.]

[Video, locked to Garen]

I'm starting to feel a little rusty, if you're off today, would you mind if we train today?

[Action, Pokemon time, public]

[While Ky's resting at home, two of his pokemon had secretly slipped out of the house to get something for their human's birthday - so an Ampharos and an Ivysaur that's on the verge of evolving as wondering through the stalls and stores.

And quickly realized they had a problem: They forgot to bring some money with them.

the ampharos Isaac slaps Jacob's vines when he tried to apply a five-finger discount as they walked out of a china shop]

No! We use money like humans do, that is their trade. Now then - what are we going to do? Our human's going to notice we're gone, and if we come back, he'd notice and we can't surprise him...

[He'd heard they had video on the Warp Bands but his old one hadn't had that feature. Maybe it's a good thing this one does.

Martin is in a room in the medical center when he starts it. Which is the problem. He died. He's not supposed to be back in the medical center two months later decidedly not dead and an Enlightened!

But he's back and now he has to adjust to these sharp little claw-nail-things on his fingers on top of everything else. What is his life?

Before Martin gets a chance to say anything, a Budew grabs the band and starts poking at it.]

No, Laterose, not right now.

[The Budew goes out of sight and Martin focuses it back on him with a sigh]

Um. I...I'm not quite sure what to say right now. I'm back? Is that what you say when you die and wake up two months later in the Forest? Is this normal for Enlightened?

[He clearly has more questions but cuts himself off]

Anyway. Could someone catch me up on the last two months?

[It has been a while, hasn't it, Union? Garen is well-dressed as always, his uniform neatly pressed, but well darn if he doesn't have a luster to him. His hair has a brass twinge to it, and his armor even looks as if it's adjusted itself so it doesn't hang off his body so much as attaching seamlessly to it. Don't worry though, Garen is not one to turn on the video for idle vanity.]

Swords of The Savior, as well as Union citizens, and our fellows in the Rangers, Delvers, and City Guard. I would like to extend my own thanks for everyone's participation Miss Tycoon's charity event, and I would take volunteers if any will step forward to help distribute the donations she's collected to those that need them, offering material is only one part of helping, after all, and to strengthen the bonds of friendship and camaraderie we've begun forging we need to strike while he have the chance.

Will any volunteer?

[As the feed flicks on, it shows Chie standing in one of Union's parks with an Aegislash hovering next to her and looking stoic, shield held in front of its body and fully at attention.]

Okay, so, uh... Guan Yu wanted me to brodcast this.

[Chie glances over to her Pokemon as she finishes setting up the Warp Band.]

You ready?

[With a short nod from the ghostly sword, it drifts down toward the ground, extending its shield arm out to the side and performing its best bow.  It's only slightly awkward considering that it can't exactly bend and doesn't have a waist.  Chie starts into a spiel that was clearly given to her by the Aegislash itself.]

Do you pledge, in front of all these people and Pokemon, to train hard, battle fiercely, protect those in need, and never give up in the face of overwhelming odds?

Slash, slash... Aegislash.

[For those capable of understanding Pokemon language, it's essentially a pledge of fealty and servitude, and a recognition of Chie as a worthy lord.  Guan Yu is very big on formality and tradition.]

Then rise, Sir Guan Yu!

[After gratefully bowing its head a moment more, the Aegislash rises proudly into the air, holding its shield up triumphantly.]


[It seems pretty proud of itself.  Chie's not entirely sure all of this was necessary, but even she has to admit it's pretty cool, and by this point she's grinning widely too.]

Well... you heard him, guys.  I've got myself a knight in shining armor.  Pretty cool, huh?

[So the weather's not that great. Ah, well. Some things have still got to be done, this time of year...

There's activity around the Tatsumi Gallery today. Two people running in and out, and a gang of Pokémon hard at work, too. The artworks for sale being changed up; the collection of Calderan textiles that were recently on display being reorganized to make room for a collection of ornamental masks and even decorative cordwork hung on display in the windows.

And as Kanji emerges from the gallery, his arms full of decorations for the building's exterior, he looks back and calls out-]

Ma, we've got this! Go on, siddown, you're just gonna put your back out!

[Right, then... where to start with this lot? He looks at the Pokémon who're helping him today, and nods. Not too much to do, right?]

[The Warp Band shows a slightly fuzzy image for a moment, of what might be leaves and the sky -- it's a little hard to tell, frankly, in black and white.]

[After a little bit of struggle, someone finally manages to angle the camera over towards where a simply massive Snorlax is napping on its stomach in the middle of a shadowy, overgrown patch of forest. Something is moving underneath it -- is that a human arm? It is, and it's flailing rather desperately. A very concerned looking Rapidash is sort of trotting anxiously next to them, nudging at the hand.]

[And then several members of an Exeggcute hop into the foreground, babbling over each other in apparent concern. How did they get the Warp Band off of the trapped trainer? It's a mystery.]

[Any Pokemon, Shifters, and Kindred Souls will be able to hear them babbling about how the Gardevoir told him not to nap on the Big Blue Thing, and he's trapped now, and they tried waking it up with the Power of Dance, but it didn't work, which is probably because they don't have hips, and anyway, someone come and save him! Save him before it's too late! Don't let his mad strong dance game be lost forever! Everyone else will just hear them babbling.]

[Being a Seeker is serious business! Those that run into Lux, either working at the Seeker's headquarters in Union or Caldera--she has been doing a lot of commuting via warp lately--at or between the University or, interestingly enough, the Delver's guild, will find that she looks a bit run down. However, she still seems quite energized, shuttling between places with a bag full of books and papers.

When not working her butt off at work, at home she seems to be pulling long hours, the lights in her apartment on until very late. Going over her own notes during her travels, as well as those she has been given access to through the Seekers, she seems like a woman on a mission. Also a new caffeine addiction, with the hours she's keeping.]


Hello! Lux here, with a bit of news!

I have my first job with the Seekers, and am currently looking to assemble a team. I have a small stipend, so we'll be able to pay, of course. It will involve going into the Old City and looking for computer parts. We're hoping to be able to disassemble and reconstruct a few of them and place them in the habitat for safe keeping. While we aren't sure we'll have all the parts that we need to get the job done, we have to start somewhere, right?

Oh, right, I should probably tell you what we're working on, huh?

While going through some of the technology that has already been recovered from the Old City, some of the scholars at the Calderan branch managed to find something interesting, which coincided with some of the literature that they've managed to find. Apparently, the old civilization had a way to be able to store information about various species of Pokémon from different areas and pull it up at will, through a device they called a Pokédex.

And as my first job, I've been asked to get a team together to search the Old City for components to start constructing something similar! It's really exciting! So, I'm looking for a few people to bring down there with me--experienced delvers, although I already have one on board, engineers, and a few extra hands. Right now, our funding pool is quite small, but we're hoping that as this project progresses, we'll be able to pay better.

So, do I have any takers? I'm hoping to get a team assembled as soon as possible!

[[OOC Note: Given the complexity of this plot, there will be other opportunities to get involved if it caps out too quickly. Currently we are capped with the following people: Hiccup, Ezreal, Yuuna, Banzu and Eren]]
