    Vasquez stands and nods. "In that case, for your crimes, you are sentenced to a minimum of two weeks or the equivalent in the Penal Company. You will be kept restrained, and given over to Company Captain Jyarl for control and discipline. Should the need arise, you'll be tossed into battle alongside the rest of the convicts. Good luck." She goes to the wall and presses an intercom. "Send Jyarl in. This idiocy has gone on long enough."

    Phil snarls at Gordon.
    "You shut up, you're even worse than Vasquez."

    And then Vasquez speaks.
    "Ah, so you'd decided what to do before you even know the full of what's going on out there, hmm? How did I know this was going to happen?"
    Phil grunts and shifts his arms. A disgusting popping sound comes from his shoulders as he twists his arms up and over his head.
    "Ugh, how do you humans deal with a body who's shoulders dislocate so easily? Now, anyways. The channels I intercepted were corporately owned, and therefore, in a capitalist society like our own, you can't punish me for hacking them unless it harms someone, which it didn't. The companies can sue me, and I will pay them. I will gladly pay you for what I HAVE done wrong, once you pay everyone else for all that YOU've done wrong."
    EDIT:
    "Also, hacking may be a crime, but I didn't hack. I merely intercepted them by using the same signal wavelength they used. There's nothing in the rules against that."

    "You don't even know me, Phil, or, as far as I can tell, Gordon for that matter." She says with a shake of her head. "And you're wrong. Hacking into those neworks, is against the law. Period. I'm sure they'll wish to sue you, but you're still pleading guilty to Hacking, a crime which you're being punished for and can no longer contest in court. No matter how you call it "not hacking". Intercepting and transmitting information on someone else's network is hacking. Period. And if people wish to sue you, that's Civil Law, not Criminal, and is another matter entirely."

    The door opens and a man wearing black Remnant power armor, with blood red skull on one shoulder, enters. He carries a bulky bolt pistol on one hip, and carries a set of restraints similar to the pair Phil had on earlier. "This the one?"

    "Yeah...this is stupid. I'm wasting my time with you, trying to find the 'just' in 'justice'. It's obvious you just tossed this together to make what you do look like it has some sort of legal representation."

    Phils pulls his arms down in front of him and slams himself against the wall to pop his shoulders back in. His finger traces a line of runes on his tattoos and they begin to glow and move, the clouds drifting about his arm, the gears turning. It's not magic, at least not arcane magic, but something else...something different.

    And it doesn't work.
    "Huh," Phil shrugs, "Well, the point is, you've given me, what, three choices so far? All of which are ridiculous and don't bring into account the fact there was no trial and that this is no fit court or government. And, if I recall correctly, the Penal Legion is for rapists and murderers and horrible, horrible people. I'm none of those."

    ((Tuatha live in the Otherworld, which is basically where all the fey in Irish folklore go to hide from humans. It's not magic, as in one tale, a druid pulled all the magic out of the area and the faeries he was hunting were still able to hide. It's just something they can do. The problem is that it's unstable, and leaves evidence, especially if they try to interact with humans. Hence, the heat signatures.))

    Gordon sighs. If you admit that you did do something wrong, you are going to be punished for that.

    "You pleaded guilty." She says with a shrug. "Means trial's called off, and since I'm not here to waste time everyone's time, I'm dropping the other charges, no matter how deserving. Which means there's nothing to go to court about. And while you might know what goes in other Penal Companies, this one is different. Consider it prison for those with unusual resources as well as a reserve unit." She gestures for Jyarl to continue, and he'll step forward to begin putting restraints on him, the same kind as before.

    "Because magic that forces me to do what you say is MUCH less restrictive. And court is for determining sentences, as well, at least in most places. Not France, though. Is this France? No...no...This wouldn't happen in France..." Phil sighs, "And I don't feel like maintaining the weapons given to the worst society has to offer. Although I guess I should be thankful you didn't just shoot me in the face. That's a start."

    "You don't own space, therefore, you cannot legally prohibit anyone from going up there. Also, Riv's a member of AMEN and I'm going to kill him, which you should consider a public freaking service. And these aren't excuse or anything, but do you REALLY want to rebuild something Riv apparently owned and filled with explosives, or protect any members of AMEN whatsoever? Oh, that reminds me, I AM going to be telling people that the malicious, evil, and nefarious people of the world get a say in their collective future. Now, I'll gladly pay for the repairs, and my offer to give the Empire-I'm sorry, the Remnant-free robots to help patrol the streets still stands, but there's no way in hell I'm working for you and I don't trust a single one of you to come anywhere near me with any sort of magic. To you, it may seem like I'm just being troublesome but I don't think you get just what I've been through even before all this, Vasquez. I don't know if you're aware of this, but I am far from a normal, mortal being. Or at least I WAS far from mortal. I'm not quite sure now. Different rules apply to me, at least in the Mundane, and different rules usually apply to how things go in these situations, at least in successful governments. I'm sorry, but a gaggle of fighty loits who got a couple of similarly minded folk to follow them about on their happy trails of destruction and law aversion aren't nearly as fit to run a country as...well...any decent politician."
    But Phil smiles.

    Quinn stands, approaching Phil, a look of distaste on her face.

    "For what it's worth, I don't like this any more than you do," she says in a low voice to him, as she reaches out to touch his forehead. And start casting the spell.


    Erin watches silently. She doesn't like being near Quinn. Makes her skin itch.

    "For what it's worth, I think this is all utterly stupid but I'm still going to buy everyone a round or two when it's done," Phil grins, wincing when the magic does its work. His tattoos have carried some of the attributes his old self had into this human body, one being that certain magics and cold iron burn him like red-hot brands. His flesh sizzles and smokes a little, and a strained gasp escapes his clenched teeth.
