The Fallen Lord

[06:35] <Minaplo> [NEON GENESIS EVANGELION. 4th of April, 2018. Episode Title: The Fallen Lord.-
[06:35] <Minaplo> [10:30 AM on the 4th of April. Two days after the battle of the Geofront, the beginning of the rebellion- and the battle between the two gods of light and darkness.-
[06:36] <Minaplo> [A summons went out via computer communication- Yanmei, Aline and Sera were to report to the war room for debriefing.]
[06:43] <Sept> Sera had been pretty worn out from the fight, but he'd got himself mostly back together by now - literally and metaphorically. He was still quiet, but not sulky, waiting in the war room in his red coat, a bear sitting in his lap.
06[06:45] * Yanmei arrived in dark jeans, a blazer and a shiny red shell blouse underneath, her NERV uniform having been temporarily discarded elsewhere. She was hauling along a portfolio of some kind, her face tight and unpleasant for once but also flushed with the exertion of punching things in the training hall prior to her arrival. She took a quick glance around, nodding greetings before taking a chair close to Sera.
06[06:48] * Aline was quiet, much like Sera, in a black dress with a semi-matching blue ribbon in her hair. She seemed… mildly harrowed still, but was otherwise /mostly/ cordial, nodding to Yanmei and Sera before sitting on the opposite side of Yanmei from Sera.
[06:49] <Sept> "It feels like there's no turning back," he thought out loud. "Again."
[06:50] <Minaplo> ["There isn't. Again." Said Marianne.-
[06:52] <Minaplo> [Marianne was present, sitting at the head of the table. With her were Presidents Mazarin and Linden, Major Liu Lin, Dr. Surov and- giving Yanmei a nod as she entered- Ginevre Fontaine.-
[07:00] <Minaplo> ["Let's begin with the summary of the operation." Said Marianne. "The Geofront has been captured, NERV's chain of command has been destroyed, and we've taken control of several special artefacts. Critical members of the enemy organisation, including three Solomon Primes, have been captured, and the UN's ability to strike indiscriminately has been thrown into disarray. Key nations, including
[07:00] <Minaplo> all five members of the Security Council- the UK, France, the US, the Soviet Union and China- have seceded from the UN and are already discussing how to organise the Federation."-
[07:03] <Minaplo> ["However, many of our Evangelions were disabled, damaged or destroyed. The- event- at Paris-2 took us off-guard, and we've lost the Lance of Longinus. EVA-05 and Gabriel-Wei remain in Canada, not responding to communications."-
[07:04] <Minaplo> ["Let's jump into it. Blanc, I want you to tell us whatever you can about the events, starting with when you first sortied from the Battleship at the start of the operation."]
06[07:12] * Aline almost jumped at being mentioned, but at the very last moment bit it back into a minor twitch. "Ah, yes. Well… Firstly, I arrived in the target point in Canada and began the distraction broadcast. About half a minute later, the three Dysangelions arrived in a countering formation, and we began a bit of chatter. Apparently, though, they had attached a 'Dirac Inhibitor' to the city
06[07:12] * Aline projection grid, and were basically asking me to surrender. I refused, and right before the battle began, I… was contacted by an unknown voice that informed me to fire on the projector's power generator - which shut down the Inhibitor as well."
[07:17] <Sept> "This was Joan, Scholastica and Agatha? Did they tell you why they'd prefer you to surrender?"
[07:21] <Aline> "…No. Agatha was the one that delivered it, and she almost sounded like she was being nice…" Aline sighed. "But I think other than just defeating me and being done with it, I suppose securing 00 would be one of their ideas. I said as much."
06[07:22] * Sept nodded.
01[07:22] <Yanmei> "Caine has stated that she wanted 00 in the past? So this isn't too surprising."
[07:23] <Minaplo> ["More to the point, it sounds like they were expecting you." Said Linden.]
06[07:25] * Aline turned to Linden, and nodded. "They were. They more or less pointed out the entire thing had been turned into a setup in the other direction. Had I not been told to kill the power, it would've ended right there."
[07:28] <Sept> "But you were cut off from the outside during that time? Does that mean your voice was also waiting there?"
[07:29] <Aline> "It was telepathic. So that may or may not be true."
[07:31] <Sept> "I see."
01[07:32] <Yanmei> "Well, at least the number of telepaths we know is pretty limited?" Yanmei leaned back. "Is there any word on Vercingetorix?"
[07:33] <Minaplo> ["Nothing yet. We know something massive happened at the Synfront, but we haven't received any word from him."-
[07:33] <Minaplo> [Marianne turned back to Aline. "Continue please, Aline."]
06[07:37] * Aline turned to Marianne, and took a breath to continue. "Right. Well, once the Inhibitor went down, 05 and 08 jaunted onto the battlefield, and the fight began in earnest, one Dysangelion to one Evangelion. I ended up facing off against Scholastica, and we exchanged numerous AT powers between ourselves, until I came out ahead. It's worth noting, though, that the two EVAs were empty. 05
06[07:37] * Aline made some sense that way, and basically only went berserk after…I think Joan? Attacked it. 08 was active the whole time, though."
01[07:40] <Yanmei> Yanmei's brow furrowed, but she didn't say anything.
[07:46] <Sept> "Empty? Was that part of the plan?"
06[07:46] * Aline frowned slightly. "I wasn't told anything approximating that, but as I said, it makes some sense with 05 because of the way Shinji is, /especially/ about piloting it."
[07:48] <Minaplo> ["Isaiah told us to deploy them both." Said Marianne. "He said that 05 would take care of itself, but… He didn't tell us anything about 08 being empty…?" She cast a look at Yanmei.]
01[07:52] <Yanmei> "He can remotely pilot 08 via permanent synchronization. I wouldn't think it'd be necessary for this battle, though?" She frowned. "I suppose that was a good decision with what happened later."
[07:54] <Aline> "…Ah. I had suspected something to do with that, but didn't quite know." Aline admitted. "I do admit seeing him later during the battle, but that can wait for a sequential telling."
01[07:56] <Yanmei> "Did you?" Yanmei's frown deepened. "What happened next?"
06[08:06] * Aline vaguely looked askance of the others assembled, before going ahead with it. "Well, to simplify the matters that aren't in question, we won. Each EVA more-or-less beat their match, and… What seemed to, yes, be Isaiah appeared on the outside of 05, and extracted Agatha from her Dysangelion and gave her to me to hold. Then, uh…" Aline sort of looked weird and face-scrunchy at that
06[08:06] * Aline point. "08's arms and tongue broke into liquid, and literally /slurped up/ Agatha's Dysangelion like a vacuum cleaner, especially extracting the S2 Organ. Its wings broke off and it grew twice the amount, and grew an extra pair of arms as well. It… it approached 00 next, when something strange happened. A little message appeared on the HUD, saying it was analyzing what I assume to be 08,
06[08:06] * Aline that it found similarities to Second Impact, and started spitting out statistics about the - rather high - probability of an extinction-level Impact event. Then it requested - and got - permission to engage some kind of thing called 'Protocol RTD', and then… Nothing more. I passed out, and woke up to see 08 gone and the area a scorched wasteland."
01[08:08] <Yanmei> "Was there any communication from Isaiah during, well …any of that?"
[08:11] <Aline> "None."
03[08:12] * Raphael (~ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT#ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT) has joined #nervfrance
02[08:13] * Oat (~ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT#ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT) Quit (Ping timeout)
01[08:14] <Yanmei> "I'm not sure what initiated 08's feeding frenzy? But Isaiah passed out roughly the same time you did, I think. Quite painfully, too?"
[08:16] <Aline> "…Ah." Another look of askance. She was sure there were questions about more than just Isaiah.
02[08:19] * Raphael (~ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT#ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT) Quit (Ping timeout)
03[08:19] * Raphael (~ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT#ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT) has joined #nervfrance
[08:20] <Sept> "Can the landscape tell us anything about what happened when that protocol was initiated? AT-based, surely..?"
[08:21] <Minaplo> ["Right now, the landscape is shrouded in an Anti-AT Field." Said Marianne.-
[08:22] <Minaplo> ["The Anti-AT Field is losing strength with each hour." Said Surov, stepping in. "We predict that in two days it will dissipate."-
03[08:28] * Oat (~ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT#ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT) has joined #nervfrance
02[08:28] * Raphael (~ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT#ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT) Quit (Ping timeout)
[08:31] <Minaplo> ["I checked atmospheric readings and seismographic records at the time. At the time the Anti-AT Field appeared, massive tremors were picked up some two thousand kilometres away, and elements of the shock wave were registered on barographs as far east as Spain. The logical theory is that some kind of immense explosion took place."]
06[08:32] * Aline finally spoke up, looking rather rueful. "This isn't the only time the protocol was mentioned."
06[08:35] * Sept perked up at that. "…ah. Anti-AT Fields. It was in Paris?"
[08:37] <Aline> "Uh… Right after the black giant showed up." Aline said. "This time, I caught something about Evangelion Pseudo-Evolution before uh… before uh… Everything went sideways. I /think/ I was unconscious?" She slowly muttered. "I hope I was unconscious."
[08:41] <Sept> "Um. So, it should be obvious from those two cases what RTD does, and why 00 is the only one with it, that we know of. And."-
[08:43] <Sept> "But I -think- it stands for 'return to dust' - I think I knew of it during the battle. And I think… I've seen something like the giant before."
06[08:44] * Yanmei blinked hard. "When?"
02[08:44] * Oat (~ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT#ua.moc.odod.lsd.citats.122-511-841-221|oaT) Quit (Ping timeout)
06[08:46] * Sept shifted in his chair a bit. "You know. Millions of years ago."
[08:48] <Minaplo> [Linden and Mazarin shot each other a dubious look.]
06[08:49] * Aline …shook her head and sighed rather heavily. "You and your past life recall."
[08:52] <Sept> "I… EVA-01 was afraid of it, I think. That doesn't happen. It's not much, but I think it's serious and we should focus on looking into what happened with that giant."
01[08:53] <Yanmei> "It's not weird that that's what an "evolved" Evangelion would look like," Yanmei mumbled, rubbing her forehead. "But, um. Yeah. Was there anything else we were able to pick up from the event in Paris?"
[08:54] <Minaplo> ["The term 'Pseudo-Evolution' is a known term." Said Surov. "To the Science Division, at any rate."]
[08:56] <Sept> "It is? What does it refer to?"
06[08:59] * Aline scratched her chin, almost as if she wanted to think she knew it, but… nope. "…Yes, what is the difference?"
[09:00] <Minaplo> ["Evangelions are a mix of Adam's genetic material and human material. The theory is that the hybrid has clearly powerful, Angelic traits, but can be controlled, since methods used to control a human should work on an Eva, with some modification. The result is an Angelic entity weaker than an actual Angel."-
[09:01] <Minaplo> ["In truth, however, when you combine a human soul with an Angelic-human body, you get an entity that is neither fully Fruit of Life or Fruit of Knowledge, but capable of becoming either, or even both."-
[09:02] <Minaplo> ["On that basis, the term 'Pseudo-Evolution' refers to a state in which an Evangelion undergoes massive physical change, to the point where it is capable of becoming entirely one thing, entirely the other, or entirely both at the same time. It hasn't become any of these things yet, but it has the potential to do so."]
[09:07] <Sept> "Mm. Seems like one of the more likely ways an Impact event could start. Do we know what… um. How exactly an Evangelion reaches this state?"
[09:11] <Aline> "Well, there is the note about 08 eating the S2 Organ from one of the Dysses…" Aline sort of nervously added.
[09:11] <Minaplo> ["It takes more than that." Said Fontaine suddenly.-
[09:12] <Minaplo> ["An unlimited S2 Organ is key- it cannot enter the state without it- but it requires another… Sort of input. The machine is primed, so to speak, but it won't start until the button is pressed."-
[09:16] <Minaplo> ["Some sort of incredible exertion must be placed on the Evangelion. A tremendous will, or as a reaction to an unbelievably powerful AT Field acting in a certain way… We aren't certain of every trigger event, but we believe the unifying factor is that something or someone must deliberately want to make the Eva enter this state, and has the power to force the Eva to do so."]
06[09:20] * Sept stayed quiet for a moment. "So in this case…"
06[09:20] * Aline paused at that… and looked at Yanmei. It was a concerned glance.
[09:21] <Minaplo> [Everyone else was looking at Yanmei with concern as well.]
06[09:25] * Yanmei looked vaguely uncomfortable in turn. She cleared her throat. "I know what you're thinking? But I don't think we should jump to any conclusions yet."
[09:34] <Minaplo> ["Have you been able to feel Isaiah through the Libido Effect, Yanmei?" Asked Ginevre.]
01[09:36] <Yanmei> "Since the incident? Yes. But it's like he's been asleep all this time."
[09:38] <Sept> "There -is- the mystery voice that we can't discount as the one who started this, too."
01[09:42] <Yanmei> "I guess so. But why?"
[09:42] <Aline> "…Mm. But they saved my life, yet at the same time… Someone had to do it." A pause from Aline. "For all we know, someone could've controlled Isaiah and thus 08 through his link. As convoluted as that sounds."
[09:46] <Sept> "It's supposed to be practically impossible precisely because of the link, but…"
01[09:49] <Yanmei> "One could say the same of linked Solomons too? But we know that whatever Caine has them on has a strong possibility of overpowering that. Maybe someone was able to gain control of them not because of the link, but in spite of it."
[09:51] <Minaplo> ["We mustn't forget," Said Fontaine, "That the Permanent Synchronization between pilot and Eva has much in common with a Libido Effect. Anything wanting to control Isaiah would need to overpower the wills of both him, prevent Yanmei's interference, and then overpower the Evangelion too."]
[09:53] <Aline> "…Then that's probably unlikely just by Occam's razor. If they could do that, they could probably just overpower 08 and directly tell it to do that."
[09:53] <Sept> "What about the Evangelion becoming self-aware?"
[09:55] <Minaplo> ["It's possible for a self-aware- that is, a truly berserking Evangelion- to possibly overpower a human controller over Permanent Synch. But Yanmei would have felt it."]
01[09:57] <Yanmei> "I felt -something-, but I thought that was 08 becoming the dark giant. There wasn't anything else leading up to it."
06[09:59] * Aline clasped the table with one hand, mostly just as a nervous gesture. "Yeah. So, unfortunately, this remains a gap in our account of events."
[10:00] <Minaplo> [There was a sudden sound- a triple beep.-
[10:00] <Minaplo> [A voice- spoken through a remote communicator- sounded through the room. "Security to the Colonel. Something- something is happening here down on the promenade. You might want to get down here."]
01[10:02] <Yanmei> Yanmei's face darkened. The promenade? "Don't tell me that guy is already causing trouble!"
[10:04] <Sept> "Um. 'Guy'?"
01[10:05] <Yanmei> "Blue."
[10:05] <Sept> "…I see."
06[10:05] * Aline gripped a bit harder. "…Oh."
[10:06] <Minaplo> ["I somehow don't think it's him." Muttered Marianne, getting to her feet. "All of you, come with me."]
06[10:07] * Yanmei stood, frowning, leaving her portfolio behind for now.
06[10:08] * Aline then got up, using her gripping hand to push herself up.
06[10:10] * Sept stretched, then got up to follow the others, with Vassa secured under one arm.
03[10:10] * Raphael (~99.25.202.302|oaT#99.25.202.302|oaT) has joined #nervfrance
[10:14] <Minaplo> [They filed out, led by Marianne, into an elevator…-
[10:15] <Minaplo> [Out onto the promenade. Easily the busiest thoroughfare during the day, the place was crowded.-
[10:15] <Minaplo> [But where usually the space would be filled with hundreds of people walking through, now it was full of hundreds of people standing close together, crowding the place.-
[10:16] <Minaplo> [They were crowded around… Something that they couldn't see. They heard screaming, however- horrified, pained screaming interspersed with sobbing.-
03[10:17] * ZackSleep is now known as Zack
[10:17] <Minaplo> ["Colonel!" Shouted someone from the epicentre- and this one they could see, as it was Terence. "Outta the way, all of you! Move!"-
[10:18] <Minaplo> [The crowd began to part, letting them see what was going on.-
[10:18] <Minaplo> [Vercingetorix.-
[10:19] <Minaplo> [He was lying on the ground, his armour damaged and rent around the torso, stained with blood. His helmet had broken off, revealing his face- the face of Gendo Ikari. The head lolled lifelessly against the ground, extremely pale, emaciated, and unmistakeably dead.-
[10:20] <Minaplo> [Kneeling over him, his hands clutched around Gendo's torso, trembling like a leaf, screaming and sobbing, was Shinji- who, too, looked injured and exhausted.]
06[10:22] * Aline made it a point to /dash/ through the clearing in the mass of people to settle around Shinji. She didn't say anything, just crouched down and laid a hand on his shoulder - or if it was injured, somewhere nearby.
[10:23] <Sept> "…" Sera turned to look at the crowds, whether to avoid looking directly at the scene or to try and find some escaping culprit.
[10:24] <Raphael> Raphael was there as well, looking dwarfed by his close proximity to Terence. He was talking rapidly to a man just inside of the little circle of space - apparently a medic - not quite shouting, although he breaks off the conversation quickly as the others appear to fall in alongside Marianne.
[10:25] <Raphael> He mutters something to her quickly.
06[10:26] * Yanmei was sticking close to Marianne and Terence for details instead of approaching on her own, unable to keep her stunned, disbelieving looks from shooting periodically in the spectacle's direction.
[10:27] <Minaplo> [Marianne snaps her head around to look at Raphael, suddenly going pale. "Savage! Pull Blanc away from Ikari!"-
[10:28] <Minaplo> [Within seconds, Aline would feel a bear-like arm around her stomach, pulling her away.-
[10:29] <Minaplo> [Shinji's head whips up towards her- he let out a cry of despair. "No! Don't go!"-
[10:29] <Minaplo> [He reached out towards her with his left hand- and the crowd drew back in horror. For embedded within the palm of Shinji's left hand…-
[10:29] <Minaplo> [Was a sickly, bulging eyeball.]
06[10:30] * Aline barely had time to react with a soft 'oof', before staring at Shinji's hand. "S-so… so… it… you… I'm sorry!"
06[10:35] * Yanmei exclaimed something, jerking forward. "What the hell happened?!"
06[10:41] * Raphael keeps his voice low enough to avoid carrying back to the wider crowd, but Yanmei would likely still be able to overhear. He's looking tense and pale. "I have a sniper in place with a positron rifle, ma'am, just in case."
[10:45] <Minaplo> [Shinji stretched, trying desperately to grasp Aline as Terence walked away with her… And he collapsed, falling onto his father's body, all fight, all energy, spirit- everything- fleeing his body.-
[10:47] <Minaplo> [Marianne nodded to Raphael grimly, then back to Shinji. "… Terence, give Blanc to Zhang, then get the Ikaris out of here."-
[10:47] <Minaplo> [Terence nodded shortly, thrusting Aline at Yanmei- before turning and approaching Shinji, somewhat gingerly.]
06[10:48] * Sept stayed back, biting his lip and trying to piece things together.
06[10:49] * Aline made a little 'wah!' sound, more or less full-frontal bashing into Yanmei, only barely keeping standing, before… sighing from mental exhaustion.
06[10:55] * Yanmei dealt with the bashing somewhat awkwardly, clapping a hand over a new bruised spot on her forehead, but but still managed to get at least on hand on Aline's shoulder, as if to keep her steady. "C'mon. This way." She started pushing back against the crowd, trying to find a path through it. "De Pteres, you too!"
06[10:56] * Sept looked around to see if maybe the ghost of Sharon might be hanging around, but no, apparently she meant him. He followed.
06[10:57] * Aline took another deep breath, and quickly followed along, looking slightly dazed.
[10:59] <Minaplo> [Eventually they broke through the crowd, where there was seating- empty benches and the odd table outside a shopfront.-
[11:00] <Minaplo> [Sitting on the nearest bench was none other than Mr. Blue, who tipped his hat to them in turn. "Grisly, innit?"]
01[11:03] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei didn't return the gesture so much as give him an exhausted look. This was the easiest out-of-the-way spot to get to, however, so she made due, guiding Aline for an empty seat. -
03[11:03] * Zack is now known as ZackAFK
01[11:04] <Yanmei> "Were you sitting here the whole time?"
[11:05] <Minaplo> ["Of course. I was out here stretching my legs, when I saw them both appear- dirackin', I'd say. Figured I'd get out of the way before people became suspicious."]
06[11:06] * Aline sat down gently, almost blanching slightly at being led around, before going ahead and settling in. "That… is how… that usually happens."
[11:10] <Sept> "No, good job, you're the picture of innocence now. Gh…"
[11:12] <Minaplo> ["I've always said so." Said Mr. Blue brightly. He placed an arm around Aline's shoulders, taking a bar of chocolate out of his suit with his free hand. "Here, eat this. It's one of my special chocolate bars, it'll take a bit of the edge off."-
[11:12] <Minaplo> [It was at this time that Yanmei would notice, out of the corner of her eye, someone entering the promenade, looking puzzled at the crowd, trying to get a closer look…-
[11:12] <Minaplo> [Rei.]
01[11:14] <Yanmei> Ffff… She raised an arm, trying to wave her over. "Hey!"
06[11:16] * Aline briefly stared at the candy bar, vaguely wondering whether it'd be a good idea, before… shrugging her shoulders. It can't be worse than what's already happened, right? "…Thanks." Chomp.
[11:21] <Minaplo> [Rei looked over at Yanmei curiously, walking over. "Meimei, what's going on?"-
[11:21] <Minaplo> [Mr. Blue, meanwhile, was casting his eyes towards Sera- and then down towards Vassa.]
[11:23] <Sept> It took him a bit to notice, being distracted by Rei. "Is there a problem?" he immediately asked Blue.
01[11:27] <Yanmei> "An accident. Um. Something happened with Shinji? He's ok, but they've just led him off to get looked over. We're waiting until things calm down so we can get more details, so you should stick around with us."
06[11:28] * Aline busied herself with the chocolate for now, but did look up at Rei, then briefly at Yanmei. The look at Yanmei had a level of '…seriously?' to it, but soon she was back to stuffing her face.
[11:33] <Minaplo> ["What happened?" Asked Rei immediately, looking rather worried.-
[11:33] <Minaplo> ["A gentleman would give the bear to the young lady." Said Mr. Blue archly to Sera.]
01[11:35] <Yanmei> "We don't know yet? But, um. You know Vercingetorix, right?"
[11:36] <Minaplo> [Rei nodded. "Yeah… I know who he is."]
06[11:37] * Aline remained quiet for now, and tried mostly to relax…
01[11:37] <Yanmei> "He was also involved in whatever happened. And he's… less okay."
[11:38] <Sept> "Fuck off. I'm two days old, I have my own issues." He glanced at Aline.
[11:40] <Minaplo> [Rei went pale. She reached forward and grabbed Yanmei's hand. "Meimei… What happened? Please…"]
06[11:41] * Aline glanced back at Sera, and just made a little puff of air. By now the chocolate was gone.
01[11:49] <Yanmei> "We don't know what happened. They dirac'd in from someplace and… Well, Shinji… seems to have suddenly inherited Vercingetorix's abilities. And Vercingetorix himself… " -
01[11:50] <Yanmei> She put her other hand on top of Rei's and squeezed it gently.
[11:52] <Minaplo> ["…" Rei stared at Yanmei's face for a moment, as though waiting for her to continue…-
[11:54] <Minaplo> [Then it seemed to sink in. She went utterly white, and a flash of fear crossed her face. "Oh…"-
[11:54] <Minaplo> [Suddenly she withdrew her hand from Yanmei's own, turned and began to run through the crowd.-
[11:55] <Minaplo> [Raphael would see her burst through the throng, looking around wildly- and lock her eyes on Terence, carrying Vercingetorix away, Shinji being led by Bruce.-
[11:55] <Minaplo> ["Papa!" She ran, starting to follow…]
01[11:57] <Yanmei> "…"
06[11:57] * Aline stared off into the distance as that happened, and frowned deeply.
[12:02] <Sept> "What a mess," Sera finally said, just watching all of it unfold.
06[12:06] * Raphael catches sight of Rei over Marianne's shoulder, breaking off his conversation with the Colonel almost immediately to follow the panicking girl. "Rei!" He calls, reaching out to try and get a hold of her shoulder.
[12:07] <Minaplo> [Rei stopped, turning her head to look at him over her shoulder. "Raffy- Meimei said- papa- I have to see him…!"]
