    A solitary figure pushes his broom through the streets of Mechanicsburg, removing the refuse left from the day's business. It was quiet in town, but that'd probably only last until someone else tried sending a Clank down Main Street. Yes, a Clank would be faster, more efficient, at doing the job, had done the job during some of the Heterodyne glory years, but the last one was believed to be locked up in the Castle for some reason. ...Best not to speculate. "Evening, folks, I'll have a double order of suspicion and uncertainty, today," he said to the thus-far silent group of citizens... "Who's here to see what we find out?"

    As the silence draws out a large man suddenly straightens the collar of his longcoat. Presumably, this is to keep it looking symmetrical, which is completely impossible, given the large exhaust pipes jutting out of his blocky left shoulder. The vain efforts are further compounded by the fact that his three-fingered iron hand has badly creased the collar.

    "Well, if none of you are going to say anything, I might as well. I don't know why we're clustered in a street like this, nor why you people came. Nor do I particularily care. But I have a hankering for a good swig of paranoia myself."

    Mister Jonathan Fullbladder turns his large, (vertically) rectangular, bright orange goggles on the sweeper.

    Finishing his last slice of pie, a smile crossed his lips as he noticed the peculiar individual browsing for "a good swig". Standing slowly, his hand scratched his head, the man approached Mister Jonathan Fullbladder and offered his hand to shake.

    "Greetings and well met! You can call me Griever! And you are, my fine sir?"

    In my experience the first person to cast their gaze upon another generally has something to hide. Be they a Spark or just a common minion, everyone has secrets. Few people can keep them as guarded as Jontom Xire

    "I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!" he shouts to the people in his way, nearly running right into Griever.

    The man is wearing an old worn and dirty Wulfenbach army uniform and coat. He looks equally dirty and has a ragged beard and uncut hair. The man runs up to BRC and screams "clams!!" again before dashing down the street. A fish monger pushing a cart of Oysters passes by, he's coming from the same direction as the man.

    A strange man in archaic armor stumbles out of nowhere. "Emperor Demonking! I accuse you of collaborating with the enemy, and of summoning of giant clams!"

    The mysterious loony then stumbles off in search of the clams, for he's never seen them and is quite curious to see how they look.

    A girl pushing a cart of rather curious-looking vegetables leans over to one of her customers. "That one over there, I don't think he's from around here. Reckon he's a tourist?" She point at Jontom Xire. "I'll bet he is." Whistling cheerfully, she begins to unobtrusively change her price cards to show somewhat higher amounts.

    ((Seriously, Jontom, go read Girl Genius. I stayed up far too late last night re-reading the archives, and it was worth every second of precious sleep that I missed. It really is brilliant.))
