YSS Kaiyō II
Eden nodded along as Kiki spoke, then added her own commentary. "There are enemy personnel on the lower decks as well as their breaching vessel attached to deck five. They may not know our procedures well enough for that to matter, but they also have a good enough where MEGAMI and life support are, so they may very well be able to call our bluff. Boss, can you begin to give ship announcements about imminent release of the core as Leka-hei advised? We'll figure it out from there."
"I can do so, Chusa," Boss replied over comms as Eden sent a message to her crew that could receive it that the preceding announcements were false intelligence to push the enemy off the ship. She turned to Abart and Indira, "Abart, beyond Boss' warnings, we should sound the alarms. Bright red boxes are located around engineering that will sound an additional alarm. Find one and and switch it to the alarm mode. The fire mode will just get us more wet than we already are, though. So alarm mode is only necessary, at least now." The black haired woman turned to Indira, her golden eyes alight with questions as she asked them of the scientist. "Any other backup ideas that you may have to really convince the enemy?"
The Neko suspended in the goo of the hemosynth tank was losing the liquid around her fast. Her once flowing hair of an indiscernible hue was now apparently golden and long, flowing to the bottom of her waist. Her eyes, closed as they were, seemed at peace above a soft, pursed smile. Her flesh had the appearance of a sun-kissed life while her slim body betrayed an athletic past that had never existed. Naked as she was, the liquid dripped from her fingertips, nipples, pointed ears, nose, and hair in slow, controlled motions- until the drying mechanism of the tank began splattering it off of her in large amounts. Within a few moments, she was freshly dried and her eyes opened- a deep purple that inspected the faces of those around her before settling on Sutahira expectantly. The doors to the hemosynth tank folded open for her and she stepped out, looking again at everyone before she asked her question.
"How long until the assault on Kuvexian defenses?" she asked. "I am ready now... But are you?" One of her sandy brows raised while another lowered as her eyes fell on the bare presentation of Wyatt's body.
Hoshi had seen her awakening on the volumetric screens before her and sent a message to Wyatt's team, sans the Nekovalkyrja, "Betraying our plan to her will betray the plan to the enemy. Remember, she knows what we want them to. Don't add anything to that knowledge base that would compromise our plan of deceptive intelligence. We on the bridge will begin moving the ship towards Kuvexian borders."
As she said this, Sutahira would be able to notice a hemosynth tube activating. Further inspection would show him that Mikael Harris' body was being reconstructed within it.
Deck 5 Hallways
As William came back in the hallway, he would be working to defeat the enemy as he loomed over the body of Mikael. One was power armored and difficult to discern if the life within it was still present. He had died trying to protect William and had succeeded in this body's last cause and last hope.
Elenor herself had been caught up in the mix and had been hit too many times for a Nekovalkyrja to compensate for in too short of a time and at too close of a range. The plasma was pulsing into her legs and arms, notably having ripped into the lolita dress she wore around one thigh and a complete sleeve. The plasma had torn through flesh and muscle and to the bone in some places, though the bleeding was not so profuse compared to her dead comrade nearby due to her body's abilities to patch itself up as an emergency service in and of its own right. She was still capable of moving herself out of harm's way- straight to a pocket behind a wall near the zero-gravity lift.
The enemies were being pushed around by William, Klaus, and Alastair's assault on them, but not pushed back. A third armor jockeyed for position below them as the second armor had moved into the hallway proper. The first armor to have come forward stepped about and found a position to shoot from that meant they were standing in the center of deck five and were stepping on the bodies of two dead Rixxikor, near the blast door they had previously been trying to breach earlier before Mikael's heroic and lonely assault.
