    "Not a spy."

    He's uncomfortable. Very uncomfortable. She tries something Steph told her helped with that.

    "Hi. I'm...Cass."

    Using her own name was hard. She knew who she was, and referring to herself as 'Cass' was entirely different than Steph referring to her as 'Cass'. Words were weird that way.

    Souske
    Gary is able to glean a little. Most is classified, and therefore encrypted properly. Without the key, he has little chance of getting more then the name of his unit, a few place-names and a list of confirmed kills. In the four-digits. Souske, it seems, has been very busy. No wonder he cannot adjust. He's been programmed to the extent that his default state is participating in active combat. You can't help but feel a little sorry for him.

    He follows Mr Oliver into his office, then sits, hands folded in his lap, awaiting debriefing.

    Something hints these humans may suspect something. He falls silent, to lower their suspicions and fall beneath the radar again.

    I think he's serious.

    Crazy then, eh?

    ...Yeah.

    Cool. Let's indulge the crazy guy. Maybe he'll attack one of these kids.

    Sebastian smiles at C.C, I apologize Lady Nimue, but I must escort you to the exit. He walks with her to the exit, his eyes miming to Light that he needs to talk to him as soon as she is out of the room.

    He sits down on the bed, and closes his eyes a moment, marshaling his thoughts. Misa was here. Annoying, yes, but ultimately not an issue. Admittedly, everyone would assume he was feigning being sick to sneak off and have sex with her, and it would be harder to sneak off in the future, but he was prepared to deal with that. Most of the students held him in contempt anyway, if that's what it cost to not be considered a threat, then his reputation could afford a few blows.
    Once C.C was out of the room, he raises an eyebrow at Sebastien and waits.

    Lelouch
    Normally, he got Rivalz to give him a lift, and gave him a cut of the prize money. Unfortunately, he wasn't there, so Lelouch decides to catch a bus. He gets a coat, the pair of sunglasses that Smedry had just given him (they made him look older), and walks out of the premises, patiently waiting for the public transport that dealt with those who didn't live on premises.

    Sebastian slides into the room, giving one more polite bow to C.C, If you wish to return later, I believe you and I have much to discuss. He smiles at her before closing the door. He turns to Light, his face now far less pleasant. Not emotional, rather purely business.

    Another player has entered the board, Master; a rather alarming one at that. He moves throughout the dormitory as he speaks, Hmm. We appear to be out of tea. I must pick some up after I leave. He turns back to look at you, Lady Nimue being here means a Code-Bearer is likely very close by. And Code-Bearers quite often result in rather large catastrophes. He grins suddenly, My last encounter with one was Pompeii-oh, quite the mess but a show you wouldn't believe, truly.

    "Please elaborate." He says simply, stretching his head back to look at the ceiling, pressing his fingertips together. Sebastien was an excellent servant, far less given to crypticism and confusion then Ryuk. Not enough to make Light feel guilty for cheating him, but enough to make Light trust his insights.
    "What is a code bearer, and how does one detect one?" If there was another agency moving against him, then so be it. That agency had exactly forty seconds to live.
    Misa sits beside him and rests her head on his lap. He strokes her hair absent-mindedly, exactly like a cat.

    Of course, sir. In an instant, the window is open, Sebastian gone and back withen a moment, tea leaves in his hands. He slowly starts prepping the tea by hand, I may have some of hte technical terms off, Master, bear with me. Lady Nimue is what I believe is termed a 'Code' ; a near fundamental aspect of things, incapable of being slain or stopped. On her own, she is dangerous. However, her kind bear much similarity to Ryuk after they reach a certain age-more dangerous are their bearers. You see, Codes have the unique ability to offer a power, or 'Geass' to individuals that catch their liking. Sebastian heats the tea, idly prepping the other ingredients with lightning precision, Much like the Shinigami have to Lady Amani, to provide an apt comparison. However, Geass is never set in stone-for each it is different, and it lacks such a costly price, though Codes tend to expect something in return. I couldn't tell you what Lady Nimue desires, or who her Bearer is, or even what they are capable of. Yet. However, a skilled or aged Bearer is always dangerous and often highly unstable. The tea is in Light and Misa's hands now I am afraid to say Lady Amani has already tipped your hand slightly-stating her name, likely noticing her immortality. Biscuit sir? A tray of biscuits is in his hand...when did he make those?

    Light takes a biscuit.... AND EATS IT thoughtfully.
    "So she is not the threat, rather the problem is the one she chooses to bestow on. Or as many as she likes. Interesting." Another avenue to power. It would bear further investigation, once the imminent concern was taken care of.
    "If her motives are anything like Ryuk, most likely she will spend as much time as possible around her subject. He should be easy to find. His capabilities may be an issue, however unless they offer him any particular protection..." The man hadn't acted overtly yet, but if she was inspecting his room it was most probable that his opponent had already identified him, or at least had suspicions.
    This wasn't L. He didn't have to prove anything before he acted, which made him extremely dangerous.
    "Find out where she's staying." He says, coming to a decision. "It's not sensible to act without more information."

    Lelouch

    Living within a Britannian city is very different than living in an Area or in the sanctuary of nobility. Law is much more draconian in the homelands than in the areas where minor officers are much more willing to look the other way on the crimes of the upper crust. Here you have to go much deeper to find profitable games.

    The native reserves are not nice places, little more than glorified prisons for the first poplutaion the Britannians subjugated beneath themselves but due to long standing ancient treaties the law of the nobles have no reach there making them home to every level of criminal scum. A regular, a young man by the name of Jacob Black waves Lelouch over. "You're late, your usual table has been taken."

    [Ding Ding Ding! Round One of the Awkward Off.]

    What? She gave him her name? Cass. Cassandra. Prophet Who Never Gets Believed. Rough Deal.

    "I'm Gary Bell." He says, staring at her sideways. What's the next step? It falls to him to make the next move in this deadly game of social interaction. Best start with something cautious...a question, something polite and safe like:

    "How...are you doing? I'm asking that so that I can learn more about you, so you won't be a stranger. I'm not supposed to talk to strangers."

    Then the bulky boy growls at him.

    "I'm not a Shrimp!" Gary says flatly, hugging himself, one of his hands flitting back and forth. "I don't breath underwater, and I'm tall! It's a bad metaphor! And wait...wait...huh."

    He's seen something like this before. This is weird. He'll need to find a way to disengage from this conversation. Mr. Oliver wants him in his office and stuff.

    "I need to go. I don't like talking to bullies. They get to wear jackets with leather sleeves, and I can't. And you're some kind of immortal. So that sucks twice as much."

    Hold your Heberts, P&S! We should see if everyone else is interested in the Magic Cubboard first!"

    He leans down to where Alice is sitting, gazing at her sympathetically through his red tinted sunglasses.

    "Do you see something bad with your foresight, miss?" He asks, voice pitched low so no one else can hear."

    Her Aura's quite strange when perceived through his Occulator Lenses: lots of sparkling and gauntness. He knows at least, that she's not all human. And knows that she's got a foretelling ability of sorts.

    He takes off the sunglasses, and nods to Black. The Indian boy looked younger then he was, but it was a mistake to think of him as anything less then the threat he was. Jacob was young, but he wasn't innocent, he lived a brutal lifestyle that he excelled at, and he'd probably already killed more people then cancer.
    Which wasn't to say he was completely morally bankrupt, without any sort of virtue whatsoever. There were people like that, Alex was a prime example, but Jacob was fiercely loyal to friends and family and largely straight-edge.
    Lelouch was a man of principles, but pragmatic principles. He would prefer a popular uprising, but he'd settle for a coup. Resources had to come from somewhere. Funding, intel, all the myriad of data needed to run a successful revolution. And the underground was the place to get all that.
    If you were Zero. Lelouch was just here to make a little money, overhear a little, re-evaluate acquaintances, then leave.
    "Excellent." he says. "Let him win a few games, that will play to my favor and raise the stakes."

    She shakes her head at Emmette's statement.

    "Can take care of self. No problems. All of us can be friends. Hope so."

    Well, it would be nice. If scary. Cass doesn't have so many friends that she can say whether or not if you have too many, you have too lose some. She would never want to lose Steph's friendship. Ever. No matter what.

    "Doing okay. First day in school, so no idea what going to happen next. You?"

    Souske
    He reaches into his back pocket, face bland and emotionless, then hands Mister Oliver a piece of folded paper. He takes it, a little confused, only to find his consternation growing when it is revealed to be a formal document that makes it very clear that yes, he can carry the guns anywhere he likes, and that nobody in the school has anything to do with a say in the matter, even if Souske should kill someone. It's signed by Nick Fury, Director of Homeland Security. You have no idea if it's genuine, but it certainly looks the part. And it's not like you have any means of confirming it anyway.
    "I am sorry that my actions alarmed you, I shall take greater care in the future." he replies, though somehow you get the feeling that what he means is that you'll have to word your instructions more carefully to ensure their are no loop-holes he can find and use to terrorize the students. "However, I will not be relinquishing my weapons until I am off duty. They might become necessary at any point."
    With that he stands up, and inclines his head. "Sir." He snaps his heels together, then turns and walks out of the office, passing Emmett, Cassandra Cain and Gary. his eyes are ahead, his posture is that of a soldier who has received his orders and is going to carry them out. He stands, feet shoulder-width apart, hands loosely by his side ready to move, breathing steady and rhythmic. He is still wearing his guns.
    Cass meets his gaze, and wishes she hadn't. it's like looking at Bruce, he's clearly figuring out exactly how to deal with her next time they are set against each other.

    Cassandra Cain

    She meets his stare and yawns.

    She never had been afraid of Bruce. Afraid of losing his approval, yes, but never of him, exactly. Batman was a symbol to her, a way that she could repent and do good. She idolized him...but she never was afraid of him actually harming her. They had sparred, and she had read his body, and they had even fought for real once or twice due to a compound of gas from Dr. Death. She had, more often than not, held the edge against Bruce Wayne.

    His posture is...loud. He's a soldier. Black Ops. Trained. Cass has seen his type before, though not so young. Guns in school? Not normal, if others told truth. Dick had made joke about "Inner Cities" but never explained. But...Father-Monster-Dahvid-Cane always had guns and always used them as test.

    He's good. She's better. She knows.

    He doesn't register any change at her reaction. Nothing at all. At first, she takes it for nothing more then arrogance, then realizes it's something deeper, and fundamentally more terrifying. Most people couldn't see beyond his perfect features, his dreamy, intense eyes and his chiseled physique, but she didn't have those distractions. She could see what he was, and in truth, it wasn't far from what her father had wanted for her. Whoever had made him was better at it then he was, however. They got the result they wanted.

    While she has been over-sensitized to other people to the point she can read them with a glance, the opposite happened to him. He's been desensitized to the point where everyone is either an officer to give him orders, an underling to receive orders, or a potential threat to be observed and, eventually, dealt with. Nothing else is possible in his mind, it's been too well trained.

    She's a potential threat. Therefore, he must take precautions and put conditions in place so he could deal with her should it become necessary. It was as simple as that. Nothing as human as vanity involved, or fear, or love of battle, or honest desire to test himself against the best threat he can find, or even a brutish need to assert himself, nothing that would make him more then an unfeeling autonomon. It was simply that, when confronted with a threat, that's what he did. Then he dealt with the aftermath, and got on with things. He would prefer not to kill her simply because it would be difficult to then deal with the consequences, not because the idea of taking a human life was repugnant to him. Not that it was exciting either, or even that it was anything remotely special and worth taking note of, any more than collateral damage, or torture, or anything else was. Simply that, in these conditions, it would interfere with his assignment. He didn't understand why it would, because he couldn't comprehend human attachment beyond that of those with him and those against him, so didn't see why anybody would react at all if it didn't affect them. But he understood that it would, if not why, and so was to be looked on as a last resort.

    He could never do anything like offer friendship the way she just had, for the simple reason he wouldn't even be able to conceptualize the idea of a relationship where both parties were equal. He didn't even have something like a favorite food. Just a series of responses for dealing with situations, none of which were remotely appropriate for a High School environment, and while she could tell he was very intelligent he had no way of adapting his thinking either.

    Jean-Paul Valley had been like that, only in him it had lurked beneath the veneer of a polite, gentle, somewhat foolish man layering and insulating the killer inside until it was needed, kept dormant the rest of the time through hypnotism and special training allowing the ordinary man to deal with day to day life. Souske didn't have anything like that. Just the coldness, the unfeelingness. Nothing between him and the world, and the strain was already showing.

    He's still staring, still mentally dissecting her while all this flashes through his head. And he determines that, given her range of skill, there would be no point in any sort of confrontation, too many variables to put it into doubt. And so his razor of a mind went to other options to rig the competition and was eventually satisfied. Having dealt with the problem, he turned to Emmett and began doing the same to him. It took him far less time. Then Gary. Then, satisfied, he stared at nothing in particular and waited to be dismissed, still tense, and ready to spring into action at a moments notice.

    "Well handled." He complemented her, in a manner that made it clear he had no problems with the way she acted whatsoever. He wouldn't, he's had to deal with enough prejudice and intolerance in his life to have no problem at all watching people stand up for themselves. "Just the same, don't do it in front of me. I condone it, but the school doesn't. Now, I needed a volunteer in order to demonstrate something you won't see in most Chemistry classes." he didn't even seem to notice the incorrect title. Apparently, he's used to being called that. Interesting.

    He looks at her. "It's been a long time since I taught any subject at this level, and so I've decided to ensure that you all get as much from it as possible. Which is where you come in. I'm going to give you a selection of options, and you are going to select which of them interests you. I will then spend the lesson explaining it to the class, and it will be somebody else will be up here next lesson, and so on. Your first major work is to replicate the experiment at home, then I will grade you based on the success of the experiment, and the ambitiousness of the project."

    He indicates the set on his desk that looks like it should be a part of the Manhattan Project. "For example, this is a self-perpetuating oscilating Briggs-Rauscher Reaction in a fluid of Superfluid Helium. It acts as a superconductor, preventing the loss caused by friction and allowing the reaction to go on perpetually. Pretty to look at, yes, but functionally useless. Still enough to get you extra credit in most classes, if not an instant pass, but I expect a little more from my students. I have so much to teach you. I'll teach you how to create simple life by mixing a few fluids together, how to bottle youth and turn hydrogen into gold with nothing more then the right chemical compounds applied in creative ways. So tell me, Stephanie, what would you like to learn? Come on now, don't be shy."

    Students. He likes them, people yet to learn the limits of the possible, whose potential cannot be constrained. He's quite serious, but he seems a little mad when he makes his offer.

    Shirou
    He hits the showers, washing the sweat off him then gets changed back into his slacks and collared shirt. He forgot his tie this morning, so he goes without it, leaving his collar popped. He has ten minutes until the next class, so he sits with the rest of the class and chats idly, waiting for the rest to come back, and checks to make sure Liz is alright.

    Archer
    As Sebastian steps out of the dorms to follow C.C, he finds himself faced with a tall, dark skinned man with a shock of white hair, severe, intense features, and a strange costume that seemed to combine a priests cassock, a trench-coat and a knights armor. His arms are folded over his sharply defined chest, and he's leaning casually against the wall, staring at you with a steady gaze that makes it plain he can tell what you are.

    He pushes off the wall with his right foot , sinking slightly, and faces you squarely, an eternal warrior ready to fight yet another battle, hands at his sides, posture unyielding, back straight, eyes haughty and proud, yet he makes no aggressive move. Nothing yet.

    "You know what I am, and what I can do to you. Make it easy and surrender." The Archer says, his flint hard eyes meeting yours levelly unblinking. There was even less give in them then there was in him.

    Liz appears to be alright. The red mark on her face from when Patti hit her is already fading. She has a few marks from when she was Souske's human shield but she doesn't seem to be bothered by them. Instead she seems rather upset that her hair is a mess at the moment and she is really trying to fix it. Kid merely looks at Emmette with lazy eyes. One of the targets, a holder of a Kishin Egg Soul. When he sees that Emmette is picking on Gary he moves to engage, only for Patti to beat him there. The girl is significantly shorter then Emmette but meets his gaze and doesn't flinch. "Hey, leave Gary alone you meanie! Just cause he's smaller than you doesn't mean you can pick on him." She then playfully pat Gary on the shoulder as she says with and almost insipid grin on her face, "Besides the bigger they are the harder they fall, and since Gary isn't very big he won't fall that hard" She then turns to Cassandra and instead of initiating some kind of physical contact like she has been prone to doing she instead just looks at her with a smile. Odd, why would sh change her mannerisms so suddenly? Perhaps there is some insight underneath that childlike demeanor? "I wanna be friends with Cassy too."

    Shaking his head slightly with a small grin on his face at Patti's usual interactions with people he looks at Souske's retreating back with an almost pitying look on his face. As a shinigami(and the son of Lord Death[PS:We agreed that Lord Death would be a small split off part of Death the endless right? So where does that put Ryuk, cause I know for a fact that Lord Death is more powerful than him.]) He had the ability of Soul Perception naturally. Souske's soul was like steel, firm and engraved in his ways. it was sad really to see that he was almost like a machine rather than a man. Walking up behind Patti he says, "I'm sure we can all at least try to get along."

    Sebastian immediately bows to Light, Immediately, Master. And like that, he's out of the room, the door already closed.

    Only for him to run into Archer.

    Ah, sir, I believe we've been expecting you! A smile on his face-and knowing what he is, there is no warmth there. Only the twisted demon responsible for so much death. Oh, not in the last two or three centuries-these had been his years of...boredom. Where he sought out more, but before that...oh, the slaughter, oh the planning!

    Perhaps I can be of some help to you, sir? He's offering you tea, casually and yet respectfully.

    "I'll pass." He replies simply, then waves his hands, and a pair of blades appear. It takes you a moment to recognize them, but they are perfect copies of Chrysaor and Naegling, perfect to the minutae. They both gleam with deadly purpose, tips pointed to the ground as he meets your gaze challengingly.

    "Well, if that's the way it is, then it looks like I'm going to have to kick your ass." He says shortly and confidently. "Shall we?"

    A dissatisfied grin now, Ah, really? In the middle of a school? So unsubtle-and dangerous. Who knows how many innocent young lives could be snuffed out by such a conflict. Perhaps you would like to postpone such an engagement? His hands idly pull his gloves on tighter, but beyond that his body seems perfectly poised, as if he didn't truly suffer any of the aches or feelings that made normal people so prone to slight twitches.

    Archer
    He twitched and suddenly Naegling was lodged in Sebastien's stomach, the blade cold and sharp enough to hurt him. Once, a hero had used it to kill the first daughter of Lilath. It could hurt you, there was a power in it, a power as ancient as the world, as old as man. It had been forged by that first race who had walked the world before order had come, and it's magic could hurt you. Then it fades, like mist, and you are left with a hole in you.

    "No." Archer says simply, and twitches his hand again, Ascalon appearing this time. They weren't the real swords, merely reflections of them, but such flawless reflections that it didn't matter. And Archer was set on killing Light Yagami.

    He'd lived through all this from the other side, the long, painful journey of Kira and Zero and his master, who was his younger self. He knew where it led, the long war, the year that God died, and his own foolish oath to forever protect the world from those monsters. He'd existed a long time since then, and wanted no part in all that again. So if he simply cleaned it up before it could be an issue, that Shirou would never take the steps and he would never be bound to this life. He knew who Kira was, and who Zero was, because Shirou would eventually hunt them both down. Indeed, legends would be told about his battles with both of them, leading to him becoming a Heroic Spirit.

    It was probably hopeless. Because as Shirou, he'd had Archer that time around as well, and he'd never managed to break the cycle. But he had to try. The consequence was to go on existing. Even Hellfire was a better option then that.

    "Get out of my way, and let me kill the man in that room, or fight me. Or just stand there and let me keep putting holes in you. I don't really care which." Archer says, tracing circles with the tips of both the blades. Apparently, he's ambidextrous. "But if you think you can stop me I dare you to try."

    The grin is gone now, his mouth merely a line, his eyes narrowed. That man is my master, and a finer one I could not hope for this century. His arm flies forward, straight at Archer's chest. You know what he is-it doesn't matter how lithe he appears, this form merely hides and restrains the twisted demon beneath it.

    I can't say I recognize you though. Despite the frock, you aren't from the church; angels recognize my claim.

    Archer
    He parries, the blow shattering his copy of Ascalon, and before it's even vanished a copy of Gram is in his hand replacing it. So that's why they call him Archer. Because he has no respect for his weapons, he simply uses then discards them. Your estimation of him grows. "That man is going to die, and so are you. I'm just hastening matters." He replies, slicing a line beneath Sebastian's eye with his other sword. A legendary blade it might be, wielded by some legendary hoary old hero in the mists of time to perform great deeds that changed the shape of the world, but at the rate he's going through them you doubt you'll be able to keep track of them for long.

    "As for who I am, well I'd be surprised if you did know, because I'm not made yet. But you're right, I'm no man of God." He leaps back, to dodge another blow, then pushes off the wall while still in mid-air with both feet and sending himself flying back at Sebastien head first, blades scissoring lethally around him. He drives through and lands behind the demon, then turns fluidly, both the blades stained red. Two more cuts. "Guess again."

    Sebastian pulls back from the strikes, his back slamming against the wall. And on his face, a grin. Not a sadistic grin. Not a grin enjoying pain, or even the battle. Just a joyful grin, Someone interesting; a puzzle to break up the monotony? A fabulous gift, I assure you. He dashes forward now, not aiming for you but rather past you-in a quick movement his suit-jacket is off, and he attempts to wrap it around Archer's neck.

    Perhaps you could offer a hint?

    Archer
    "Certainly." He cuts the fabric of the jacket to pieces with a twitch of his sword (Kladenets), and slices Sebastien again (Tizona), at the midsection this time. To an observer, it would appear that Archer was dominating the fight, but they would understand little of a contest of this nature. They were two beings composed of essence, not flesh and blood, and all Archer's blows were costing Sebastien only the barest portion. The battle would stretch on for hours at this rate before Sebastien would even begin to feel adverse effects. And he had a lot more reserves then the Heroic Spirit.

    "I am eternal, a warrior denied death doomed to forever serve and protect humanity." That was a lot more forthcoming then Sebastien expected, but Archer was upfront when it served his goals to be. "Outside time, outside the world. That's what I am. My name you'll have to find out for yourself, though a dedicated searcher could easily locate it here, since it's hidden with my master. And you're a second circle demon, unless I miss my guess. Apparently, one reduced to playing fetch for humans. Then again, this duty is beneath me as well." This doesn't tell you anything you don't already know, though it does confirm your suspicions.

    Archer was not so far gone that he didn't want Kira and Zero destroyed. If he was, he'd simply tell the Yagami boy the name Emiya Shirou and let that resolve the issues. But while he might be tired of the world, he still wasn't that far gone. Not yet.

    He slices Sebastien down the back (Dyrnwyn) then turns again, continuously cycling his swords to keep you guessing at the properties.

    Sebastian stops, seemingly losing all interest in the fight, Reduced? He chuckles, no-laughs, Reduced, Shade? Oh no, I have not been reduced. I have found a calling. A joy; a life. Not unlike yourself, really. The only difference A jab this time, the fist seemly encased in an unholy aura; he was letting the barest edges of his image slip. Is the fulfillment I find in mine.

    In terms of injuries, the cuts were starting to pile on. But they meant little; what was meat puppet to a demon or a spirit? His nature, 'essence' if you will, was fine. He was a demon, and by no means a lesser one. Not a 'lord' or 'king' or a thousand other titles, but merely a rather old, rather powerful demon, with a very long history in the human world.

    Archer
    "What's that you say?" He asks, affecting nonchalance, as though he didn't care, even a little, about Sebastien's opinion. He's baiting you, you realize, and doing it surprisingly well, far better then his stoic exterior would suggest. The same with his fighting style. Simply wearing you down, taking no risks and using his advantages, until you get desperate and make mistakes. You wonder again who he is, but you can't think of any hero like that, or villain either. If truth be told, that's what makes him a threat. Heroic Spirits greatest strength is their mystery. Once you know them, you can anticipate them. But Archer is an enigma, and that aids him.

    Sebastien is old, but so are the swords. That was the point of legendary weapons. Right now he was using Joyeuse to attach. It had not been magical when they dug up the iron and coal to make it, nor had it been when the blacksmith pulled it from the fire, though it was the finest work he would ever produce, and he certainly poured something of his soul into it. But when a king of Charlemagne's caliber had vowed to unite a land with it, when each of the great lords had kneeled at his feet when they had asked him to protect them and he had sworn to do so using that blade, when the sword had become a symbol of the kingship as surely as his crown, and when his kingship had become a symbol of the land itself... then it had become something more then steel and a sharp edge, the way Sebastien and he were more then flesh and blood.

    Hauteclere shatters, and the wall behind it, and he pulls another one out of nowhere, ready to be used before Sebastien has even drawn back his fist. Caliburn this time. he seems to have a fondness for broadswords, so probably someone European, though that doesn't help you much. The blades sing, tearing through the silk of Sebastien's shirt with angry whines, sending white hot pain slicing across the muscles of his stomach as he cuts Sebastien again. Another thread of agony zipping across his forehead, as he flitted about with the grace and finesse of a dancing instructor.

    With a practiced flick of his wrist he struck again, hissing past his ear to embed itself in the wall. Rather then pull it out he simply creates Caladbolg and skips backwards even as Sebastien tried to close with him, the two points of his swords swishing painfully through the air.

    They are making quite a bit of noise. It's unlikely anyone would have failed to notice two super-powered beings tearing up the dormitories.

    Like Cass, Gary's somewhat discomforted by the impending collisions of friendship heading his way. Cass, Liz...that's a lot of friends!

    He flinches at Liz's contact, though he recognizes it's well meant.

    "Sure. Friends are good. Friendship's good. It's magical."

    He pauses.

    "I have to go to Mr. Oliver's room. It's...important."

    With that, he skedaddles, walked into the Gym Teacher's office.

    "I'm Late. Because of friendship."

    He sighs, sitting perfectly still while the building went to hell around him, as walls were demolished, ceilings caved in and other acts of senseless destruction occurred. Well, that's going to be a problem, since Sebastien is so recognizable, and he would be tied to him very quickly. His only realistic option was to get off site as fast as possible, then kill all the witnesses.
    He stands up. An explosion would do the trick. Taking his Death Note and his schoolbag, he opens a window, and slides out, Misa following him. He already has the perfect candidate to be responsible for the explosion, and he could arrange it easily. Souske Sagara.
