It had been faint almost inscrutable but the hollowed pitter and patter was undeniable. The marine strained and his neck tightened as he wafted the embers of energy towards his ears. The resonant thump of the ground doubled in intensity. There was uniformity in the muffled thuds. At first he'd presumed it to be drums but now there'd been a haphazard manner in which the sound echoed. It was footsteps. Judging from the speed and power, Loki surmised its origin was in close proximity. A new wave of excitement washed t piercing into muscle and bone, invigorating them.

The marine rolled to his side and pushed from his fingers and raised his body into a crouching stance. Loki was grateful to the thick shrubs that obscured his movements as he started crawling further ahead. A predator in the night he was now on the hunt for his prey. After lingering on the edges of the sound source, he makes a final push and inches closer. By now he can deduce human voices in hushed murmurs and stifled laughs. The group of characters had led him to an encampment. From his hidden position he can see shadows gathered around a camp-fire.

A room illuminated only by a pair of intense overhead surgical lights cast color upon a duo of individuals—one of power, one of subservience. One man was surveying two operating stations, in his hands a pen and notebook, both of used condition.

His notebook is filled with scribbles and data up to the 100th page, a page with which was soon running empty of space, written by a half-sized pencil and a hand that remained steady and systemically monotonous throughout. The author had created written documentation that studied the effects of his powers on the ill and injured. It was not by his choice, of course. Dimitri would rather be out on the field, preying on his enemies and taking the spoils that were intended for winners. But alas, he was stuck in a laboratory to document his devil fruit power's efficiency for the Marine's brass.

"Alright, Dimitri, you can go now. That should suffice enough for now. " spoke out the shorter individual in the room.

Dimitri narrowed his eyes and sighed as he realized that he would get to exit the lab. The lab's foul odor got to his nerves every day, and it didn't improve when the other man accompanied him. Asher was a man that didn't keep up with his presentation at all. Messy, putrid, and rancid were the three expressions that befell Dimitri's mind when he initially encountered him. Dimitri wasn't sure if the smell was from the laboratory or Asher. But he didn't care anymore; Dimitri's post at the lab was about to end.

Dimitri promptly dropped the notebook in his hands on a table nearby and walked out the doors. Immediately his nostrils met a touch of fresh air uncorrupted from Asher's stench. Now, Dimitri walked off, looking to find his commanding officer.

Waking up with a sudden flare that brought the man to quickly sit upwards on a bed, Levi frantically looked around as he took in his surroundings. It was an all white room with a few fixtures reminiscent of a medical facility, although this room was more rudimentary than what the Marine was use too. Examining his body he would notice an IV stuck in the vein of his arm as well as the bandages covering the other as he wondered how he even got here, and then the vexing image of a cat like woman popped into his head triggering his memories.

"Tsch.......DAMMIT!!" The Youngin yelled while ripping out his IV and then placing his hand on his head.

He had lost, and the feelings of inferiority now coursed through his body.

Was all of his trainings for nothing, what would had happen if the person he had face was a stone cold killer, do you intend to leave the fate of your life in the hands of others, are you even dependable? These where some of the thoughts that coursed through his brain as he lifted himself off of his medical bed and made his way to leave the facility within a small marine post as nurses tried to stop him but to no avail.

He had his mind set, he had to get stronger, and he didn't care what means he had to undergo to achieve said ability.

After wandering around the city for several hours, familiarizing herself with the general layout, Pitou now found herself in a local tavern. Using the press of patrons and general murmur in the air as another kind of cloak to hide herself while she let her thoughts wander. She kept returning to the square she had passed through earlier, heavily guarded by marines it was nerve wracking for the mink to say the least. Within it a platform was close to completion, her best guess was this was the location in which the pirate king would meet his end. She took another gulp of her drink, her hood still up as her eyes wandered the room without truly looking. That was until she noticed a familiar figure, her voluptuous form as recognizable as the annoyance it rose in Pitou in the following moment. Finishing the last of her drink and the slight amount of alcohol spurring her on, Pitou rose and approached the woman, taking the open seat on her other side without asking.

You, human, still owe me. I'll take a drink as payment.

Despite predicating an interruption from someone; Mirabelle didn’t expect to find the person to be someone she knew. It was the cat mink she met on Shimotsuki a while back, the woman would side glance over to her. A face of irritation of the interruption was clearly seen on her face, but she let go with a sigh. She gestured to the barkeep to ring her up for the same drink V and herself had gotten. “There, happy now neko-chan?” she said with a slight uncaring tone. She turned her attention back to the V once more but before she can readdress her; it seems the goons from across the bar decided to pick trouble afterwards. “Hello ladies, care to entertain some nice fellas today…” one of the men tried to wrap his arm around Mirabelle’s shoulders, but the woman stopped him. “I’m sorry guys, girls day out…” she tried to be as nice as possible but seems conflict was inevitable. The men immediately gripped onto Mirabelle tightly on the wrist, causing the girl to become pissed off right away. “****. Off” she said, slapping the man across his face, but she would apply the petrification of devil fruit’s power. This caused his face to immediate turn to stone; as part of it broke off from impact. The other two men, now fully alert would attempt to arm themselves for a fight as. One drew a knife as but Mirabelle would slam her palm onto a chair nearby to turn it into stone, picking it up and throwing the stone chair at him. “Ladies, time to get a little rowdy…” she said looking at the leader of the trio. “If you think you’re about to get with that…your surely mistaken witch…” the main goon said, now drawing his sword.

Name: Perfume Femur ღ Siren's Bite
Devil Fruit Name: Mero Mero no Mi
Type: Offensive, Defensive
Rank: E - Z Rank
Scale: One Meter
Description: Siren's Bite allows Mirabelle the ability to physically strike her opponent, but upon immediate contact allows her to petrify her target. The struck area will turn into stone instantly; making the affected area unusable. It should be noted that striking the area with enough force will also cause it to shatter. When striking opposing items, Siren's Bite cause it to turn to stone as well, while also potentially breaking the item (depending on the item's health points). Allows for the user to defend against other style techniques.

Note: Follows the standard technique rank/rulings. Against inanimate objects, should Siren's Bite strikes will deal full damage to the item. Grants the destructive keyword.

V definitely wasn’t quite used to such kindness; then again, this could easily be a trap. She decided to play along attempting to keep an optimistic tone to herself. She shifted her eyes about the tavern seeing the usual surroundings of drunkards and annoyances. The noise was almost unbearable. Her hand began to plant onto the counter of the bar kneading fingers against the rough wood before staring blankly. She could barely think.

“Ah. Sorry. My name is V. And I would prefer to keep my business private, thank you.”

She didn’t exactly care if that came off a bit rude but hopefully this stranger would respect her wishes. She accepted the glass immediately shifting her eyes to nearby sailors hoping to tone into their conversation the best she could. The glass was lifted to her lips to down but her focus remained on the sailors in question. Her focus began to fade as she heard someone approach. Someone Mirabelle knew perhaps? That was perfectly fine but the moment a few bar goers began to approach, her eyebrow began to twitch. She could barely hear anything from what she wanted to hear and all she could hear was Mirabelle striking. It seemed laying low was no longer an option.

Her teeth gritted as her hands began to slowly lift causing the wooden bar to levitate above her head. All the noise. This was all so unbearable. V stood out of her sheet and swung her arms forward forcing that wooden bar counter to fling into the main goon.


Name: Golden Manifesto
Devil Fruit Name: Fuwa Fuwa no Mi
Type: Offensive/Defensive/Supplementary
Rank: E-Z
Scale: Variable
Description: The user gains the ability to manipulate inorganic material that they come into physical contact with, this ability is described as being able to cancel and/or manipulate the hold that gravity has on an object, but the user cannot use its power on any other living thing. Typically, when levitating something, the user gestures with one or both his hands (his fingers included) to better control the effect. The capability to fly using this ability allows them to move at a much-faster pace than other people and to travel long distances in a short time. When levitating objects for offense or defense their power is determined by the intelligence attribute as well as their SPM, the user can manipulate as many objects as their tracking allows.

Note: This technique will follow the scale, damage and card usage depending on the rank used as according to the regular rules. Additionally using it offensively or defensively will use the standard cards for those actions.

"Hold it right there soldier!" A powerful voice issued with force, stopping Levi in his tracks before he could exit the Marine post. Sighing in annoyance as he recognized the familiar voice, the Youngin would assume the greeting position raising his left hand towards the top of his forehead as he stepped aside from the front doors. A slender yet tall man with jet black hair slicked backwards would then step in front of the Marine, smiling in a humorous manner.

"It is bad enough we found you beaten, unconscious, and injured far away from the frontlines embarrassing our faction. Now you're telling me that you're in a rush to go back out there so you can do it again? Ha! You must be crazy! Step back, heal, and humble yourself on the courier team for awhile. We need things delivered to various locations on the island and you seem lively enough to handle the task at hand. Got it soldier?"

"Yes Sir!"


As his ranking superior left the building the Shandian would slam his good fist downwards onto the desk of the check-in clerk signalizing his frustration. He hated being demeaned like that, and taking orders from persons he did not respect was one of his pet peeves of being a Marine. As of now an order is an order, and so he follow suit on the task given.

Picking up supplies from the docks Levi would then make his way to certain points of Grey Terminal delivering them to other Marine camps, posts, and sights, aiding the battle for Dawn Island by supple means.

Following the reported execution of the Pirate King, the Goa Kingdom had returned to relative normalcy. The hustle and bustle atmosphere characteristic to the Kingdom was alive and well, crowding seemingly every street that Zero turned onto. The buildings were tall and grand, extensively decorated in a way that gave the city a vibrant and polished look. The people matched the Kingdom's aesthetic, dressed in likewise extravagant clothing and adorned with expensive jewelry.

Zero inhaled sharply as the scaffold came into sight. The structure seemed to tower into the air. Zero's eyes lasered toward the peak of the scaffold. His body seemed to move automatically, the noise of the noble citizens around him drowning away. It was as though the scaffolding was screaming at him, a thundering voice beckoning- almost commanding- the Fishman to approach. Something incredible had happened here, Zero thought. Or perhaps, it was what lingered following what was once an overwhelming presence. The man who had once defined freedom had perished there. The power present against such a force...
Zero's thoughts were broken by a scream piercing the air. The Fishman's head shot to his left, catching sight of a standing above two others. One of the men was laid out in the dirt, his hand desperately nursing a bullet wound in his arm. The other man dropped to one knee in a panic, concern and fear etched onto his face. The man pressing them laughed, smoke trailing from his gun.
"Apparently, you didn't get the memo. You commoners should stay in the slums where you belong."

Zero had heard of such men. Guards for the nobles, bullies toward those unfortunate enough to be born outside of noble birth. Drawing Horizon from its scabbard, Zero approached.

"Why don't you try me on, lapdog?"

The crowd clamored at the sight of Zero approaching the guard. They began to clear away from the two warriors, murmurs filling the air as they watched the Fishman brandish his weapon. Sunlight glinted off of Horizon's sharp edges, enunciating the serrations that lined the blade. The guard turned a mocking expression to Zero and a hearty laugh broke free from his lips.

"A swordsman against a marksman? You're a disadvantage," the guard sneered.

He raised his gun, aiming it square for Zero's forehead. The Fishman took a final step, closing the gap between them at 10 meters. He raised Horizon in response, a small smile etched on his face.

"Nah," he said simply, unfazed.

The guard's jaw clenched into a frown, annoyed at his failure to perturb Zero. The Fishman bent his knees slightly in preparation, entering a battle stance that saw him hold Horizon horizontally in front of his chest. The crowd fell dead silent, as though holding their breath in anticipation to the fate of this stranger who dared to challenge a guard of the nobles themselves. The silence in the air was broken by a thundering crack, the guard's gun firing a single bullet directly at Zero's head.

The Fishman's nimble fingers hit several of Horizon's switches as Zero lunged forward. Zero swung his blade downward and a powerful gust of wind was flung from the blade against the ground. The whirlwind lifted Zero into the air, out of the path of the speeding bullet. The guard looked up in surprise. Stunned that Zero had dodged his shot, he raised his gun far too slowly, allowing the Fishman the chance to fire off another burst of wind that launched him toward the guard at blistering speed.

Taking advantage of the momentum of the thrust, Zero sliced a large gash into the chest of the guard as he flew past. The Fishman landed in a crouched position a few meters behind the guard. The gun fell to the ground, and the guard collapsed to his knees before crumbling unconscious.

"Room to work with suits me just fine," Zero chortled, standing to his feet and returning Horizon to its scabbard in one smooth motion.

He shot one last glance at the guard, a solemn look settling on his face. There were far too many bullies like him roaming these seas, Zero thought, his mind flashing to those dark memories that still lingered his thoughts. He turned away from the unconscious guard and began his exit from the town center. As he trod on, a group of men peered intently at him from a street corner, their expressions most intense...

The giant gorilla, with its crude wooden club, stared furiously across the clearing at Gabby's fierce eyes. Its lips curled back, revealing monstrous yellow fangs, and the beast pounded its hammer of a fist across its chest. Gabby remained unintimidated by the display, and entered a stance that lowered her body forward with her legs spread apart. The gorilla stepped forward, slamming the club against the side of a tree at the end of the clearing.

Gabby was no powerhouse, but had long learned to work around brute force. The gorilla charged, and Gabby ducked to her right. With speed that more than surpassed the gorilla's, Gabby circled around to its flank and fired off a burst of wind with a lateral kick. The Tempest Kick flew past the gorilla, slicing off some of its fur before cleaving through a large portion of the tree. The gorilla spun around and, seeing Gabby's determined glare, dropped the club and lumbered into the forest as fast as its body could carry it. The giant snake that had been stalking her remained hidden among the branches, shaking in fear.

Gabby resumed a relaxed position and continued on her way. The Fishman was only interested in a leisurely stroll in the wilderness, but the gorilla had marked the third giant beast to attack. She followed a creek to the coast, where she had anchored her boat. Her request for a transfer had been accepted, and she was on her way toward Torino Kingdom. She was determined to prove to herself that she had successfully memorized the map and the start chart she had kept back at the inn, and cut her ship loose to transverse the ocean.
