Ukulum, Castrovel - The Way Back
Quote:
The doctor shakes her head. "Mainly Castrovellian and Taldane. They did not seem too concerned about me hearing what they had to say, at least not until you started to close in. When they didn't want me to know something, they'd move away or whisper." She notices Mendev searching the bodies for documents. "Mr. Malone, when they found the book that contained something they all got excited about, they put the info directly into the computer on their radio and then burned the book. They seemed especially concerned about you getting the information. Probably why they fried the computer..."
From his crouched position, Mendev looks to the doctor and then to the fried computer Aja had been working on. He shakes his head, the movement bring by a wave of pain in his head. Well then... that's as good a lead as any.

The trek back was arduous for Mendev. He didnt want to quit though. Quitting meant a certain death. He wasn't ready for that. A few weeks ago he had been. Now no longer. He had gotten a new purpose rescuing the doctor. It felt good not to fail. Not even the splitting headache could take that away from him. On the trek he concentrated on the info Aja had found and the doctor's words. When that became dull or he could no linger think of a new way forward, he resigned himself to admitting he was going to need the infosphere. The Cult of the Devourer was just something he was NOT too familiar with. He'd have to do some research before he moved forward with that.

In those moments in between the pain that he couldn't think about things, he looked to T'aro. He wasn't too familiar with Shirren mannerisms, but he had observed T'aro enough to understand something was up with the mystic. Sometimes it took time to process things. With his own injury to tend Mendev decided to leave the inquiries for after they got back to the Maiden.

You can use your standard action to make a ranged attack that distracts a foe in your line of effect. Make an attack roll against AC 15. If you hit, you deal no damage, but the next ally to attack that foe gains a +2 circumstance bonus to her next attack roll, as long as that attack occurs before your next turn.Harrying Fire

T'aro

T'aro is quiet for several moments after Vette's question. They try to figure out how to put to words (and then translate) what they're realizing.

"It is hard for me, yes. But... hm...." The thoughful noise comes through far buzzier than most creatures' "hm"s. "When I was in the hive, sometimes, there would be combat. And it was easier then. I was giving myself up to the will of the whole, to do what was best for the whole. When I broke off, left, I followed my own desires. I healed-- I helped install the kinds of personal upgrades that you are now using, and to ease the body's acceptance of them when something went wrong." How T'aro knew that Vette had gotten a persona upgrade isn't entirely clear-- but it's likely that they have some specialist knowledge, an eye for such things. "I helped others... but I was living mostly for myself. I didn't do things I did not enjoy, because there was no need to."

T'aro pauses for a few more moments, feeling the weight of Vette's arm on their shoulder. It is comforting. "What we saw, Vette-- what those cultists were doing, and might yet do... it reminded me of patients who had let a bad implant go too far. Gangrenous tissue beyond the ability of most magic to repair. Things that need excised. It may be an unpleasant process, but it's something that's necessary for the body. And I think that it is cruel to others and a shame to myself to not do what needs to be done. Enough living only for me. I can live for a greater hive again, and do what must be done. Even if it's unpleasant.

"Teach me."

Qabarat, Castrovel - Aiudara Facility
The whole way back Mendev had not complained, but he had been largely silent. He carried what he could for the doctor or the others. Mainly any of survival equipment. The way back was going to be perilous. And while they weren't rushing headlong chasing maniacs, their environmental protections were limited. Ukulum was not to be trifled with.

At the Aiudara facility Mendev squinted at the camera flashes. It was painful, and he lifted his hands to cover his eyes. He recalled his mood last time the group had been in a similar situation. He grimaced a smile and forced himself into a grin. One was squinting almost shut while the other had a raised brow. Giving the man a Nicholas Cage in Face Off.crazed ecstatic look. He readied himself to answer questions but was relieved when T'aro took the helm. Instead Mendev smiled, winked, and pointed into the crowd. His index finger randomly pointing into the crowd while his thumb mimicked the cocking of a pistol hammer.

When the question was asked about what was next for the group he seriously considered an answer. He wanted to put out that they were seriously considering going after the Cult of the Devourers. A part of him wanted to let them know they were going to be on their tail. But Grix's answer was more appropriate. Never telegraph to an opponent when you're going to push them. Instead he kept smiling, waving, and nodding.

When they were introduced to Dr. Solstarni's mother Mendev's head cocked slightly to the side. An Ambassador? It was a curious fact that had not previously been mentioned. Mendev straighened out as much as he could and gave a small nod. It is a pleasure to meet you Ambassador...Solstarni. He looked at the doctor than and smiled.

Then came the spectacle meeting with Sid Shneed. When Grix was dealing with Sid Mendev leaned towards Aja and asked; We have sponsors now?

When it was all over Mendev had had enough of it all. He took of his armor and looked at himself in the mirror. He was wholly unhurt, but for a shiner on the side of his temple. He sighed. All Mendev wanted to do was sleep. He jumped into the shower, and though he wanted to stay there long, he knew he didn't have much before he crashed. He made it back to his room. For moment he looked at a picture on the side of his bed before he crashed to sleep.

The next day he woke up and transferred borrowed funds back to Grix and Vette. Then while the upgrades were being done on the Sunrise Maiden he went out shopping.

The dangerous nature of our journeys makes it seem less likely." T'aro looks away for a moment and looks back. "Important things are not always enjoyable things, Matsu. I hope I don't say too much. But I would urge you to visit them. It may well bring them joy."
"It is my duty to visit them and I will." Matsu pauses. This is not the whole truth of the matter. But putting that truth into words is not easy. "I do not know that it will bring them joy. But I can say that it will bring them some peace to know that I did not die in the jungle, lost to them. That peace may well be uneasy when they learn of our next expedition. But I cannot hide that either. I hope that my actions make them proud, despite what they did."
