Session 134: Vectoring In On The Answers

Darien begins to review the facts with his team while they adjust to having Seraphna in as a member of the team. During the meeting she suggests that everything they've been experiencing might just be smaller parts to a much bigger plan, or even distractions to keep them occupied while VI makes it's real move. Everyone fervently denies this possibility as everything seems far too significant. Then, Darien is alerted that his base is under attack. The group races to the rescue and VI aims it's guns at the team, mostly towards Seraphna.

She claims they're wrong and that there's much more to it, but Darien refuses to hear of it. As they continue the meeting, about infiltrating Janus, Seraphna steps outside and is ambused by Chad.

Chad injects her with a serum and runs for it, claiming he's only doing what he has to do. Seraphna, infuriated and starting to lose it, screams out in her bond before it's cut off. At that moment, Adam makes his presence known, telling Sera that her powers are gone before overpowering her and knocking her out, teleporting away with the girl. Darien's unit, unaware of this, moves in on Janus to see Spade confronting Chad about the event, which quickly becomes a firefight. Unexpectedly, Chad's retreat is cut off by Seraphna, appearing in full force and announcing to everyone that Chad Winters has turned agent for VI.

As the chaos that ensues continues, Seraphna gets herself alone with William Spade and turns coat yet again, revealing at the last moment, as she knocks William out to actually be Zeraphna. Teleporting away with him as well. The team, unaware of the big switch, now is left with more questions then answers, and second thoughts about what Serena Cran's real intentions or mission might be.

Darien's team joins forces with Albert's Janus forces and the two begin an assault on the Janus base.

Session 142: Just Rewards, Richly Gains, and Fallen Heroes

While Darien fights to seize control of the Origin, Xanatos has to step up and take down Erevis for her own good. The team meanwhile, is forced to fight a mind controlled Zephyr, dominated by Zera's Alpha Protocol. During the fight, Id surfaces in Chad's mind and becomes a threat in and of himself as well. He however overcomes his own mind and dominates it, regaining control. Serena meanwhile races after Zeraphna, and faces her true weakness, compassion.

Convinced that others hate her, Zeraphna uses Sera's insecurities to give the already stressed and broken woman a true mental breakdown, and while she slowly begins to take influence over the Omega, however, Warren and Chad step into the arena and quickly take down Zera, Seraphna, shattered from her stupor, begins to realize her own failure even as Zeraphna taunts her, leaving Zeraphna for dead, the others begin to leave, Spade, who urged Sera to fight this, looks down on her with disappointment.

The fight with Zephyr resulted in having to injure Zephyr to near death, and with everyone recovered and the base cleared, everyone returns to the surface where Zephyr begins to die. Serena falls into her shell of self pity as Chad looks on her in blame, while more rational people look on them both as the cause. Warren however, does not have time for the blame game, and continues to try and ressuscitate Zephyr after the medics have given up, a good thing too, because she comes back to life, rushed off to intensive care. The events in the case leave them with many questions, what will the heroes do from here, how can they recover, and who else works for VI?

Session 149: It's The End of the World As We Know It

The Aquarius is hit in route, as Tsivrixsh ships move into the atmosphere around Mega City. John attempts to outrun them, fainting and dodging, and just when things look grim, the Thunderclaw, Elayne's ship, appears and attacks. Forcing the Tsiv to back off, Elayne clears the way for the Aquarius, allowing it to move on. The Aquarius lands at the facility containing the companion and everyone disembarks.

Here they run into Xevil, armored and ready for battle. The team gangs up and begins to fight him, Xevil, who madly rants that he will tear them apart, kill them as he once did before, something no one seems to understand, puts up a strong battle. Some of the others, Seraphna mainly, notice VI moving on in the confusion and moves to stop them. John holds Xevil still and orders Elayne to fire, the Thunderclaw firing high powered lasers and missles into the two.

While Ariel and Avalon begin to clash, the others stand around watching, not allowed to interfere. They discuss Sera's alignment, Ceres commenting on their dellusions as they start to claim they weren't just saved by Seraphna, a complete lie. As their attentions lapse, they fail to notice Spade creeping up on them, until he misses his first shot. Avalon rushes his fight with Ariel while Hotaru takes out Spade's guards, the team gets him to stand down finally, he declares his intent to do it their way, saying Serena was right about it.

The smoke clears, Xevil and John continue thier fight, Dias intervenes, becoming a thorn in Xevil's side. As the three battle, up above the chamber holding the compaion is slowly opened, the group, arriving too late, take out the VI members only in time to see the 5th lock disengage and the door open. In the distance, Erevis begins to freak out, warning them all that HE is coming.

What steps out of the vault is a creature made of hyperspace, it darts away from them, ignoring them, and appears by Ariel, slamming everyone close to her out of the way, he takes her in his arms. Then vanishes.

Session 150: The Origin of Heroes

The groups stagger to meet one another, pounded and tired, they gather to try and figure out what the creature is, an what it really wants. On a rooftop in the city, the creature takes solid form as it deposits Ariel on the roof. It looks like Darien, and comments that it plans to destroy the reality to remove the corruption inside it.

As both groups talk, one thing becomes apparent, they need a plan to get rid of the creautre without killing it, for it could kill Ariel. Before they can move however, the creature does, it tells Ariel it can make her remember, then vanishes. Reappearing in Eve's lab, the creature grabs Origin, and kills Eve.

Meanwhile, the group hatches two plans, to deal with the Tsivrixsh World Killer above which plans to wipte out Earth to stop the creature, and to deal with the creature itself. Chad is sent off to start putting together a trap while the others move in to keep the creature busy. Seraphna and Spade ready to unleash a beam powerful enough to match Hyperspace.

Xanatos pilots the Aquarius through the atmosphere, dodging blasts, he brings the ship around for the main cannons of the world killer. Closing his eyes, she aims the ship and smashes it into the cannon, destroying it entirely. As does the Aquarius, then Xanatos.

The rest of the team moves into positions. Spade promises to marry Serena if they get through this alive. Darien rides up to the roof on a Motorcycle, clashing wityh the creature, whom he calls Wind, the two face off, DS and Wind, face to face once more. DS ends his ruse and an attack shuttle lifts them off the roof, it's then that Seraphna and Hotaru, in Gear form, fire beams for the roof, when the smoke clears, Wind eyes them in rage, zeroing in on Seraphna, he flies right for her.

UNable to outrun him, Serena and Spade unlock the Third Form, shifting from the powerful Dragon into... a humanoid, faery like form, with wings, and super speed, she forms and energy blade and the two begin to fight. Backed by Hotaru, the two seem to be winning when Wind suddenly powers up, he overwhelms Sera and sends her flying, the Thunderclaw attempts to intervene and his cut in half, spinning out to crash, and Hotaryu, ignoring Sera's urges to run is nearly killed, Wind bursting through her, frying her insides.

The rampage continues, the group trading blows, Wind fascinated by the new generation of heroes even as they keep failing to bring him down. Serena and Spade seperate, leaving Serena to heal as Spade moves to rejoin the others. Together the team slowly lures the godlike enemy along. Forming an idea, the group leads Wind to an old lab, choosing to use an unfinished engine to exile the monster. As Serena makes her way there to help Chad build it, Spade steps in as the one to distract Wind and buy the others time.

Using Ariel as bait, Chad builds the engine, and Serena's efforts are only redoubled as she feels Spade's head severed by Wind. Feeling her fiance die, she redoubles her efforts rather then collapses, and the others, primarily Cassandra, Kane, Ceil and Darien, work to lure him down, keeping him at bay while directing him.

Soon he enters the lab for Ariel, and there the Cran siblings activate the Light Engine for the very first time, a tear in reality opens, and the team works to push him in, but all seems to fail, then Darien slams his body into Wind, and the two are pulled into the vortex together. The smoke clears once more, Wind is gone, as is Darien, the list of the dead piles up, and the injured are gathered to recuperate. The hyperspace around Earth stabilizes, the world saved, but with heavy costs to the team.
