Kar'Anna Maraneth
Condition: Normal (?)
HP: 1

The Drow woman enters the casino, taking a drink from one of the numerous waiters. She heads to one of the gambling tables, watching for a moment before gesturing ever so slightly to change the odds in favor of the player.

She uses the distraction that the cheers bring to raise a finger to her brow.

Amy? If you can hear me, run. Do not follow. Worse than Toronto.

Amy

The girl nudges the grate open and lets the critters out. For the moment, she doesn't say anything, but it's clearly obvious she's worried and angry. Peekaboo hops up on her lap and her other critters crowd close to her feet, projecting as much warmth and calming sensations as they could.

Amy? If you can hear me, run. Do not follow. Worse than Toronto.
The girl breathes quietly, using an old trick she had learned from the old Alakazam that had first taught her how to use her own unique abilities. After a few moments, she managed to reign in her own emotions a bit. She took a sip of her lemonade to clear her throat.


"I wasn't fifteen then." the girl reminded her. "I'm not leaving you behind this. What the farking heck is going on?" she asked. "If it's worse than Toronto, you're gonna get yourself killed and your soul eaten!" she noted dryly. "If you remember correctly, we were dealing with freaking wanna-be chaos cultists!"

Perhaps not. Too dangerous to talk like this.

Kar'Anna projects a mental image of a woman to Amy's mind. The woman sitting at the table with you, but also of the Predators that you fought on Venus.

Trust this one.

Amy

The girl cocks her head, eyes blank as she 'talked' to her friend. "Alright. Do you need an distraction to help you get out? We can provide it if necessary." she said seriously.

"Just give the word."
she said and then asked. "Who is this lady?"

Amy's mind-speech is already encrypted so only the people she wants to hear can hear it.
Mind speaking: Mental Communication 3, statewide or across a small nation (Subtle: encrypted) Senses: Senses 2 (Linked; Detect: Minds 2: ranged)

Also, changed the age she mentioned to her current age. Toronto was about 3 years ago, so she'd be on the end of 12 years old and very much a rookie trainer. If the lady is psychic or force sensitive, she might know Amy was talking to someone, just not precisely what is being said.

"So, you guys don't stand out or anything." Her tone and choice of words are a tad condescending, but her posture and body language are anything but. This woman is a trained warrior. She is likely a lethal martial artist, but also accustomed to lead. No, not lead, hunt.

"New in the area? I recognize the armor, but not the rest of you."

In the meantime, Giovanni exits from the lower levels and takes his leave.
The featureless helmet regards the newcomer for a long while.

"Travelers. Waiting for a wayward friend." Rand says warily. "Thanks for the bottle." he gestures to the untouched-by-any-but-her bottle on the table. "Could we have the name of our benefactor so we could work up a proper thanks?"
"Something pithy this way comes."

The woman shrugs.

"Small Knife."

Amy

As Kar'Anna's voice faded from her mind, the girl quickly and mentally told her friends what the drow had told her.

"And why are you interested in us?" she asked warily. Anything associated with Predators would do that with her, no matter how highly recommended they were. Still, her friend had done so, so she would give the newcomer a chance. "In this kind of place, it isn't out of pure altruism."

Not sure what has spurned the young girl's briskness Rand tries to cover. "Don't get us wrong, 'Small Knife'. We do appreciate the drinks but we've had cause to be cautious in other situations."

"As our young friend asks, what about us might have earned your notice? I'm Rand, by the way."

"Pokemon Trainer, Mandalorian and Ruggedly Good Looking Guy walk into a bar."

She takes a drink.

"Do I really need to say more?"

Waiting a moment, and raising an eyebrow to see if anyone makes a connection with the name she gave, she adds:

"Guess I do.

"You're not here for the food or the stellar accommodations. You haven`t gone downstairs and you lool like... you. Personally, I never go down there. Too much crap going on. But if you`re looking for something and it brought you to this hellhole, that`s where you need to be."

Another patron walks up.

"You still owe me a drink girlie."

Amy

"What sort of things go on?" she asked, petting Peekaboo who poked his head over the table and glared at the man demanding a drink. "I know it has to be bad. All of the pokemon in the area are scared stiff of this place and won't even talk about it." she considered. "Even the normal animals avoid it like the plague." she shook her head. "Most pokemon and even regular animals are chatterboxes with Dolittles. For them to be so scared that they won't talk? This is a very, very bad place indeed."

"Dude, you're approaching a table full of dangerous people and demanding a drink. Were you born stupid or did your mamma drop you on your head as a child?" Peekaboo snarked at him.

Alma glanced up at the man. "I'm thinking both." she said, obviously unimpressed with the guy. Even untranslated, you could tell she was being very sarcastic.

Ren leaned against Amy's chair leg, grooming his whiskers. "Want me to blow his nuts off?" he asked nonchalantly. "It'd be protecting the local gene pool." he wheedled.

She smiled a little. "We can find our friend easily enough, once we past the bouncers. She's kinda hard to miss." the girl scritched Peekaboo's ears as she contemplated the woman. "We just want to make sure she's okay." her smile faded.

"Her last words to me were not reassuring." she sighed. "Forgive my wariness and bluntness. I've not had a very good day so I'm rather on edge."

Alma looked at her. "Not necessarily a bad thing. It's not paranoia when there is a Mightyena behind every bush wanting you for dinner."

Rand's helmet turns in a slow deliberate menace toward the newcomer.

"We have not yet finished our conversation with tha lady. Surely tha business of a mere drink can wait a few moments. I'm sure she can find you at the bar when her and my business is done with." He says with a dangerous measured cadence. Various systems on his suit start to hum ominously with his words.

Amy

"I told you we should have burned the place down." she told her friends mentally.

Amy studiously ignored the obnoxious man. Right now with the way she was feeling, any attempts at diplomacy would involve a bar fight and massive amounts of property damage. While entertaining, it would kinda ruin the 'let's be semi-civilized' thing they had sort of going at the moment.

"So, should we try to get through the bouncers?" she asked Lindsey.
