    Isaac, for his part, remains as it was, and not a whiter shade of pale.
    "Hi Iknika! I thought I might find you here. Thanks. Of course, I'm not quite bulky as I should be, and if I bulked up I don't know what would happen to my hair." he says, giving her a meager flex and then fussing with his bangs.
    He hopes she recognizes the costume but she might not have actually started those comics he recommended for her.

    Isaac isn't the kind of person to be stuck-up about differentiating comics from manga and thus will not even think about correcting her.
    "Oh, that's ok. How've you been doing? Still want to see that movie?" he asks with a smile.

    Whatever dance Fayyaad chooses, Cassandra will take to it with confidence, though a problem will quickly become apparent - one that's probably obvious to Fayyaad, even if Cassandra wouldn't have noticed it by herself - they can't both lead.

    "I just spoke to a half-goddess who offered to help me train, so that's a week's worth of weird and cool stuff," Iknika says. "A movie sounds great. And can you guess what I'm going as?" she asks, raising her "armour"-clad arms.

    Fayyaad is perplexed. He assumed Cassandra wouldn't know how to dance at all. She really doesn't seem the type. Maybe she's learned for whatever mission she's going on that also requires her hair to be white? He decides that the least awkward way out for now is to let her lead.

    Isaac smiles, but he’s never been a video game person. Can’t afford to have to have so many hobbies.
    ”I mean, you’re a knight. Or do you mean like, the specific order?” he asks her, brow furrowed.

    "They're called Templars. Their job is to protect mages and keep them out of trouble," Iknika says. "And they get really stylish armour. But I've also heard they drink some stuff to help them resist magic, and it messes with their heads. That part is less cool."

    Kendra smiles as Fayyaad and Cassandra take to the floor, but stays off to the side. Although she herself doesn't dance anymore, that doesn't mean she can't help provide the amusement for others. Instead, she seems content to watch quietly with a nostalgic smile on her face.

    Once Electra finishes the long, slow song with a flourish, she'll step up to the microphone, as the robots playing the bass and drums launch into a faster, swinging rhythm that's more suitable for a more energetic style of dancing. The keyboard player adds a bit of organ, and she'll strum at the outset, adding more and more guitar as the song calls for it, playing as she starts to sing softly, building as the song does.

    o/~"Tonight the streets are red, the lights are blue and blindin'. No sign of the 'Good Doctor', but the siren's wail and whinin', tell us he'll be found!"o/~ Synthesized brass plays a crescendo accent, and while it doesn't sound quite as good as live players would, it's still more than adequate. Her mezzo-soprano lowers in intensity for the next line as she gives an impish grin and looks out amongst those close enough to be dancing or listening. o/~"I can almost hear the hounds."o/~

    She strums with a flourish, before going on. o/~What kind of man builds a machine to kill a girl? No, he did not use his hands, like a smart man, he used a tool. But just the same!"o/~ The brass plays again, but Electra's intensity doesn't ebb this time. o/~Can you question who's to blame?!"o/~ And from seemingly nowhere, numerous voices seem to rise up from everywhere in front of the stage, all shouting in unison, "WHAT WAS HER NAME?!" Those looking in Kendra's direction might note her mouthing those words as well, though her voice seems conspicuously absent. Electra carries on with the song, though a brief flash of puzzlement is evident on her face, though not in her voice. o/~"It doesn't matter, now listen! The 'Good Doctor' has to pay!"o/~

    The confusion passes quickly enough, and her singing lowers in intensity before ramping up once more. o/~"When I say he was a monster, when I set fire to his name, it doesn't matter where you hear it from, whether truth or lies, it gets said all the same."o/~ Another flourish of horns, and then, o/~"Whatever's on the table plays!"o/~

    She launches into a raucous solo, accentuated by the horns until its crescendo, which quiets the entire band for a brief instant, before the bass picks up the beat once more and she strums along to it, her singing quiet and low and seductive. o/~"There is a flame that I've been fanning, there is a fire waiting to catch, there is a hell that has been building from the moment we first met. If there ever was a time, if there ever was a chance, to undo the things I've done and wash these bloodstains from my hands,"o/~ She begins building in intensity, along with the music. o/~"It has passed and been forgotten, these are the paths that we must take, 'cause you and I, Tom, we are men, and we can break."o/~ The music, and her singing, grow in intensity, building quickly. o/~"If you think that you can run, if you think that you can stand, well you forget who turned this city on, you forget who plugged this city in!"o/~ Yet another flourish of horns. o/~"They'll not switch it off again!"o/~ More horns. o/~"One by one, they're tuning in!"o/~ The horns now stay in the music, until the end of the song, which Electra finishes with a massive energetic solo that captures perfectly the mental image of a villain gloating in victory over an adversary.

    When the last note rings out, she grins, before launching right into a spritely instrumental jazz/rock fusion song that invites yet another form of dancing. Perhaps she'll sing a bit more later, though her selection for this particular venue might be a bit limited by the children present.
    Why is it Plan A is always, "Get 'Em!" and Plan B is, "Cause as much collateral damage as possible"?

    Fade moves over to Kendra. He still got the packed candy in his hand trying his best to open it without using to much force.

    "Are you enyoing the event?" he asks. His voice is normaly soundless, but that sounded a bit forced. He still got an issue starting a conversation.

    Kendra looks over at Fade and nods, smiling gently.

    "Yes, it's very nice," she says, glancing at the candy in his hand. "I haven't heard Electra play in a long time, so it's nice to be able to hear it again. How about you?"

    Fade is still busy trying to find a way to open it. It's a typical plastik package, One of those you need to grab at the right point to open it.

    Iknika leans in slightly, opening her mouth... then she blushes a deep shade of grey and pulls away.

    "So, um. There's candy, and wolves and some riddles in the tunnels. But I think those are for kids."

    "Yeah, but they're not as, uh... friendly," she says. When she was there with Claire, the wolves were in a pen. Those wander around like puppy-dogs. The wolf trots up to the two teens, sniffing eagerly. Iknika smells like his great-grandpa, but Isaac is weird. So he walks up to him and examines his knees closely. Iknika grins toothily.

    "I don't think the point was to scare spirits away, at least, I'm pretty sure it isn't anymore," Kendra comments thoughtfully, though she leaves the comment about him not enjoying the music alone. Can't please everyone, after all. Instead she offers a gentle smile and nods at the treat he's struggling to open, then asks, "Would you like some help with that?"

    Chailyn stops her dance in surprise. That was way better then she thought it would be. She picked the best new friend. She gives a delighted squeal and clap before remembering her charm to hide isn't working. She starts to move her feet in the magical way that makes people ignore her. So she might be able to get to the cookies. It might be too late if they already noticed her after the distraction.

    Kendra takes the candy Fade offers, and in one quick motion, manages to pop it open without damaging the treat inside. She hands it back to him, still smiling that same gentle smile.

    Fade takes the Candy with a nod. He takes the sweet between his scarf and takes a bit from it. His expression shows that this thing is much to sweet for him.

    "Maybe." Fade comments. "This food is to sweet. How can small ones eat this like drinking water."

    Kendra chuckles, a motherly smile on her face.

    "They're children, they run on sugar. Any excuse to inhale sweets is a rare opportunity, so they take fullest advantage of it."

    Meanwhile, Electra ends her previous song, and begins another, this one sounding more like a pop/disco/rock fusion with a driving bass line, which might lend itself to yet a different sort of dancing.

    Kendra raises an eyebrow for a moment, then shakes her head sadly.

    "Those guys are generally bad guys. There's a reason we tend to teach kids to stay away from them, and it isn't the resulting sugar high for the kids, you know." Either Fade's trying to make a joke and she somehow missed it, or they really don't have that problem (or apparently, any sort of childhood) wherever Fade's from. She's not sure which thought bothers her more.

    Isaac tries to gently stroke the pup's head, though really Isaac's healing factor really should keep him from being so nervous.
