Yeah, we need a storyline first.  That will allow me to make a definite decision as to what my character wil be.

Yeah, we'll probably need a storyline before we start for me to think of what my charrie should be. I sense that someone is already thinking up a storyline for the RP 0.o

If you want I can write the story.


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

How about a task force created to hunt down remaining Geth forces on UNC Worlds after ME1?

Or a wealthy man hires us to track down and kill a mercenaru, but he fades into the background, so we have to search the corporate and criminal worlds for hints of where he is around the time of Mass Effect: Revelation(before ME1)?

Or we are the Alliance Crew of the Frigate Warsaw(Polish City in keeping with the way most ships in ME seem to be named) that crashland on a UNC world controlled by Batarian slavers with various slave villages that are mining the Titanium out of the planet's surface(Pre-ME1).

I can come up with more stuff.

I like the Geth hunting one.  Perhaps we could have a second star cluster is being used as a staging area for another wave of Geth operating with the ones you destroy in the Geth Incursions mission who don't fall back when the signal is sent at the end of the GI mission.

This would be a council funded mission, so it wouldn't be just humans. And we would have to shy away from space combat as we don't know a whole lot about it.

Perhaps something to do with a Salarian STG, like the one on Virmire.  They report intel on something and the Citadel Council sends in a multi-race taskforce to support them.

To make it a bit richer I think including a Salarian STG would be a good idea.  We can take the Geth base idea and mix it with the mission on Virmire, where the STG know where the base is but its too strong to assault by themselves.  We could then have it where once the main base is taken some intel is found showing a Geth assault nearly ready to launch with a number of smaller bases on different worlds are discovered that have to then be assaulted before the attack.

And we could possibly have some civilians or something else to mix things up. And unlike the GI mission in the Armstrong Cluster where it had 10-20 geth, these would be last ditch efforts with 100+ geth and heavily fortified.

Name:Urdnot Lux

Occupation:Mercenary

Class:Krogan Battlemaster

Appearance: Lux has a trio of scars across his neck. Unlike most Krogans, his face is scar-free. He attests it to his ability to duck, but in truth it is caused by his wearing of a fully sealed helmet at all times in public. He is a huge Krogan, standing well over 8 feet tall. He has massive arms to allow him to hold his shotguns single handed.

Weapons:Two M-300 Claymore Heavy Shotguns with Cryo and Inferno rounds augments. Both shotguns compact to his on his legs. He has a hunting knife in a sheath on his back(machette sized, on where the shotgun goes in ME) and extra thermal clips on his sides. He also has a pet Hunting Varren, Mult, which is a Red and Brown breed with armor on it.

Bio:Lux has his personal history written on his Rage armour in ancient Krogan. He says anyone that really cares about his past could read it. He is around 1,000 years old. He came to do mercenary work for the council, and was put on the Task force to take down the geth.

Name: Alec O'Donnell

Age: 23

Occupation: Alliance Marine

Apperance: One major scar from the top of his right temple across his right eye to his chin. His hair is close cropped and dark brown, his eyes are green and his skin tan white. His armor is dark blue with diagnil black lines on the upper torso.

Bio: Alec joined the Alliance straight out of High School. He grew up in Scotland on Earth and came from a moderately weathly family. He constantly would steal money from his parents to give to his poorer friends. His sense of duty stems from his grandfather who served. He fought during the Skyllian Blitz when he was 20. He was in Elysium when it happened and helped repel the alien invaders. He also served in the Attack on Torfan two years later. He served in several operatons and has been said to be a bit of a Lone Wolf when attacks come but gets the job done.

Weapons: HMWA X Assault Rifle, Two Edge X Pistols

Here is my idea for a plot:

After the Battle of the Citadel with Sovergian and the Geth most people of the Council are screaming for Geth blood and to go to war with them as a whole. Blaming them for finding Sovergian and aiding Saren in his crusade. The Council talks most of the people down and for the next two months an uneasy peace settles over the worlds of Council Space. Emmasarys (sp) are sent into the Perseus Veil to make contact with the rest of the Geth people. The Goverment there claims a rouge element of the Geth Fleet aided Saren and that it wasnt them. Some claim that they are lying to save themselves.

Another month passes and the Citadel has been repaired and most fleets devesated by the Attack there are being rebuilt. A attack on one colony of each council species, one Asari, one Taurian, one Salarian, and one Human are attacked by Geth forces. Now a full scale war seems unavoidable. To adress this situation the Council forms a team of Mercs and Spectre hopefuls to track down this rouge Geth army and take them out before a full scale war with the Geth starts.

Hows that for an idea?

Umm...Geth straight up despise all organic life. The emmasarys would have been killed. There is no peace between Geth and Organics.

I agree with Drake, and I'm also pretty sure the Council would have known this so it wouldn't make sense for them to send emissaries in the first place.

I say we just do what I suggested before and have it where Geth operating independently of Saren are staging a big assault and a Salarian STG have discovered it and informed the Council, who are organising a response team.

OOC: Are we all too busy playing Mass Effect 2 (I'm on my 3rd playthrough now!) to start, or are we just waiting to come to a definite agreement on the story.  I'm thinking of starting my character with a quick back-story, but it is all dependant upon what the overall story will be.

Name: Tavish Durrell
Occupation: Freelancer; Spy
   Finesse: Heavy Cannon Pistols; Dual Wield
   Abilities: Biotics
Age: Twenty-Four
Details: Appearance
   Synopsis:
    -Height: 5’10”
    -Eye Color: Lavender (Side-Effect)
    -Hair Color: Sandy Brown
    -Physique: Lean; Runner’s Build
Biography: Genetically engineered from before he was even born, Tavish was modified to be quick and acrobatic while also retaining the development of biotic abilities. The intent of his creation was obvious; to make the perfect assassin. It was to be his life, destined to be his future if he managed to fall into the wrong hands. It was the day that he was to be given to his would-be father that an Asari scientist that worked on the small project found out the truth behind his creation. Faced with the issue, there were only two choices available: hand Tavish over and allow for an assassin to be formed, or take Tavish under her care and raise him herself.

Unwilling to bend her morals, she took the risky move of taking Tavish for her own in the hopes of finding safety for him rather than let his life be determined for him. Barely able to avoid the many obstacles that made into her path, she managed to escape and seek refuge with fellow Asari. Many of them disapproved of her actions, worried that she would get attached to a Human child with a short life span, but they understood why she took her actions and aided her.

Raised on a lush world in Citadel Space, he had an easy life compared to others. He was raised to be morally good, but also to be aware that sometimes ruthless actions had to be taken to accomplish the greater good. It was when he was in his teenage years that his biotic potential began to show, along with a mishap from the genetic engineering. With the arrival of his biotic abilities, a mistake in his genetic codes became obvious as his the pigment of his iris began to change from their original hazel color to lavender. It was harmless, but it drew concern until it fully settled in. Having been raised by an Asari proved to be useful for him in the sense that he had someone close to help hone his abilities.

At the age of eighteen, he was determined to set a new course to his life against the wishes of his Asari caretaker. Something in his blood craved the thrill of battle and adrenaline, but his mentality constantly berated him for it. Eventually he found himself on the Citadel, joining C-Sec for a few years before taking one step over the legal edge after resigning and taking the job as a spy. It proved to be more interesting than pushing papers around for C-Sec.

Personality:
Having been raised under good charge, Tavish is easy-going and usually makes the choices that is morally right. He does understand, however, that there are some circumstances where doing the right thing might not seem like the correct thing. Hesitation is common for him when pushed to do something he opposes and usually results in him being guilt-stricken for some time afterward. Most of the time Tavish is relaxed, or more so than others, but he can be focused and determined when he feels the need to. Ignorance is the one thing he can't stand out of many things.

OK, here is my more fleshed-out idea for the back-story:

Geth have managed to make it onto an uncharted world within easy reach of Thessia, the Asari homeworld.  After reports of heavy Geth activity in the area from merchant vessels, the Citadel Council dispatched a Salarian STG to find out what the situation is.  Once the STG confirmed a Geth base in the area, with full manufacturing and repair facilities, the Council decided they couldn't just send in the STG or Asari Commandos to resolve the situation.  It was decided a multi-race taskforce was needed, much like the one Commander Shephard used to take down the rogue Spectre Saren and his Geth.

Meanwhile, a ship of Quarians on a supply run to the Citadel hear rumours of the Geth activity from news reports based on leaked information to the media and decide to investigate independently, as this doesn't seem to fit any known pattern of Geth activity.

I've just updated my character sheet to make mine a straight-up Mass Effect 2 engineer.

Also, if we go with Dha'wards suggestion of setting it after the attack on the Citadel then we should probably go for thermal clips.

OOC: this will probably seem more of a fanfic by the time I'm done, but it should give a nice back-story to my character and the Quarian mission.

Time: Present day
Location: Quarian Migrant ship Tuuri, orbiting an uncharted world.

Cody'Rama walked through the ship with his datapad, scanning its content as he went.  The chief engineer wanted an check of the spare parts they had, and as his assistant it was up to Cody to find out.  Before leaving the Flotilla they took on extra supplies to support them on their extended journey, taking on more once they reached the Citadel, their original destination.

That is when the plan had changed.  New information came about, and the Captain took the decision to check out this information.  Now, a fuel line had ruptured and while it had been repaired, the Chief Engineer wasn't happy the repairs would remain in place.  It was a long walk each way through the twisting maze of corridors that made up a Quarian ship, and it gave Cody time to think.  His visit to the Citadel was still fresh in his mind.


Time: 5 days ago
Location: Citadel

C-Sec had spent close to a day and a half checking out the entire crew of the Tuuri since it had docked.  This was standard procedure, as most people didn't trust Quarians.  For most of the crew, a full list of checks had to be run, however Cody got off easy as the officer who was assigned to clear him was a Turian Cody had met during his
pilgrimage on the Turian homeworld.  This also allowed Cody to persuade the officer to try and get food donations for the Quarians to take back to the Flotilla.

Once everyone was cleared, they were finally free to leave the ship.  Cody and his partner started off by looking around the Wards by the C-Sec academy, where they had to go through coming from the ship.  After a day browsing the markets they headed off to a local bar named Flux.  They took a seat by the window, and soon a Volus came over to speak to them.

"Greetings, clan-less.  We don't get many of your kind here.  I'm Doran, owner of this club."
"Nice to meet you, Doran.  I'm Cody'Rama vas Tuuri and this is my wife Seel'Zhan vas Tuuri.  Our ship is here on a supply run, and we thought we'd drop in to rest our feet for a bit."
"I see.  Well, we have a fine selection of Turian drinks for you, they're all here on this menu."

After ordering drinks, the three continued talking for a while.  They talked about various things, from each others races to music.  Eventually, Doran came out with something that took Cody off guard.

"So, I presume the Migrant Fleet is preparing a strike force to get those Geth supposedly threatening the Asari homeworld."
"I'm sorry, but I don't know what you mean."
"Oh, I see.  If you watch the news reports later, I'm sure you will see the full story.  From what I understand it, someone leaked information to the media about a Geth force preparing to attack the Asari homeworld.  Several merchant ships have reported Geth sightings, and a couple have even been attacked."
"Keelah, we weren't aware of this.  Our ship was only to come here to pick up some of the harder to get items we need for the flotilla.  The Captain needs to hear this when we return."
"I'm surprised you clan-less didn't hear this sooner.  Do you think you will you be able to reach the fleet in-time to warn them?"
"I doubt it, they're in the Terminus systems right now.  We're much closer and would be better suited to respond, but even then we don't have many Marines on-board.  Even if we were to go there, I'm not sure how effective we'd be.  Keelah, this is such a shock.  I would love to sit and chat with you more, Doran, but this is something that needs addressing immediately.  Thank you for your service, and I'll be sure to recommend this place to the rest of the fleet."
"You're always welcome here, clan-less.  I hope to see more of your kind here in the future.  It's been a pleasure talking with you."

Once the bill had been paid, Cody and his wife quickly left to head back to the ship.  Cody used his Omni-tool to check the Captain was onboard, and once they reached the ship they headed straight for the Captains quarters where he was staying.  They told him of the conversation in Flux, and soon senior members of the crew were called up to the bridge to discuss what would happen next.  They decided that rather then try to contact the Flotilla and wait to see if a Marine task-force would be sent, the Tuuri would go instead and provide any assistance for the Council forces that would no doubt be on-scene.

Lux hated ships. So small and enclosing. But the worst part was not being able to control where he went. On land, if he wanted to go north, he went north, and nobody could stop him. On a ship, on this ship, some squishy Asari was piloting, and ultimately decided where to go. He wouldn't have accepted the job just for the amount of time needed to spend on a ship, but he had been stuck on Illium with no work. And he had kids to feed. His daughters were on Tuchunka. His ultimate goal was to get their mother and them off-world and somewhere nice. He was perhaps the only Krogan with such plans. The clans were being rallied, by a member of Urdnot no less, but that didn't change his plans. And the possible pay for this job was luticrive. When the asari needed muscle, they could really pay. And the prospect of a good fight was too hard to pass up. He just hoped they would get there soon. In the meantime, he would try and get some sleep sitting in the chair he was in. Only a few hours until they got to the citadel.

Alec slapped a new thermal clip into his rifle as he aimed down its 5x scope. The geth trooper he was sighting popped its long head up and took a disrupter ammo burst to its glowing blue eye. It fell to the ground as two more moved in to take its place.

"S***" Alec cursed as he dropped behind the rock he was taking cover behind. He and his unit of 4 other Alliance Marines had landed on some desert world no one had heard of about 30 mins ago after recieving a distress call from a downed civi transport. The Alliance ship SSV Agincourt, a frigate, was deployed to the system and Alec and his squad landed here by shuttle. They almost immdeiatly got ambushed by geth snipers and flanked by troops. One of his guys were down and bleeding out. They needed to get him out fast.

Alec stood and torn up and geth that got too close. Its chest armor exploded into sparks.

Pulling his men back to the shuttle landing site that was in a hidden outcrop of rocks that surrounded the shuttle on three sides, Alec ordered them in and that they would try to escape and hope the geth hadn't and AA defenses. Loading his wounded man on the small ship they shut the Kodiak shuttles door and had the pilot burn sky to orbit where the Agincourt sat waiting. They made it through the hailstorm of geth ground fire, landed in the frigates landing bay and Alec went straight to the forward battery.

"Eye, blow those bastards to hell" He gave the gunnery officer the firing coordinates and watched him go to work. after confiming with the commander the SSV Agincourt fired several Mass Accelerator rounds to the worlds surface, obliterating the geth force. After a quick mop up by another squad the frigate jumped through the Mass Relays to Arcturus Station.

OOC: Hm.. Maybe somehow their presence was noted and they were each contacted individually ( or through someone else, like say having a message relayed through a.. higher ranking officer ) to meet up at the Citadel? The details on the meeting would be very sketchy because the Council wouldn't want to reveal themselves just yet. Once they were all there, then the Council would reveal their interest in them and blah blah blah task squad idea suggested blah blah blah everyone agrees for possible personal interests blah blah blah task squad formed blah blah blah they probably get a ship.

How does that sound? XD

OOC:Yes Oronk. And I don't think that would work, especially for the quarians. And Lux is supposidly on the ship taking the task force to the Geth planet. The main problem is the marines. Could they prehapse be re-tasked to support the task-force? If we want the task-force members could have a flash-back to the meeting where they got the job. What do you lot think?

OOC: My guy's a freelancer. He wouldn't be reassigned since he flies solo. I suppose he could be under contract by the Alliance.. But why are they going to a Geth Planet? Geth don't really have planets anyways. Unless you're referring to the Base on the uncharted world. Anyways.. i spose that could work for my guy, but you need to check with the others.

OOC: I thought the story we agreed was that the Geth were making a base on an uncharted world (which turns out to be multiple bases on multiple worlds in the area) near to the Asari homeworld and the Council was sending a taskforce to neutralise it, with the Quarians also going to investigate on their own.

OOC: That's what I had in mind. I don't know about everyone else, but I don't have it in mind to just start off this role play by getting to shooting. That's no fun. I was thinking everyone, minus the Quarians, would end up being recruited for a multi-species task force by the Council as planned by Flyboy and such. Which is why I mentioned the whole.. contacted individually bit. I think it would be rather interesting to see everyone's first impressions of each other rather than, like I said before, jump right into the action.

OOC: In the meantime, I'll continue my characters story.

Cody was nearly back in engineering when all the lights went out.  Cody suddenly felt weightless too, and then he realised what had just happened.

"Keelah!  The generators gone!"

A few seconds later emergency power kicked in and brought the lights and other critical systems back online.  The gravity remained off as the emergency generator could only power so much.  The Tuuri was a very old ship, nearly 250 years old, and it was a miracle it had managed to get them to the Citadel without breaking.  Now though, it seemed like everything was going wrong.

When Cody got back into engineering he saw everyone rushing about trying to find the exact cause of the problem.  The Chief Engineer came up to him and Cody handed over the datapad containing an inventory of the spare parts.  He then selected a few of the items on the list and steadied himself on the wall as he turned up to look at Cody.

"Take a couple of people with you and fetch these items for me.  From what we can tell this is going to be a big job as the problem could cascade if we don't fix it fast."

Cody got a couple of nearby engineers to come with him and soon they were at the storage locker where the spare parts were kept.  They grabbed what they needed and hurried back to help fix the problem.  No matter what the cause of the problem was, Cody knew they were in for a long day trying to fix it, if it could even be fixed in a day.

Lux awoke as the docking sequence began. He stood up and streched his muscles. He was technically supposed to stay where he was, but he was a krogan, and he was going to watch. He walked through a small crowd of asari passangers. He made his way to the bridge of the transport ship. The asari crew gave Lux looks, but knew better than to possibly anger a krogan in such a confined space. The fact that Lux was much taller and bigger than the average krogan, and had 2 shotguns only helped.

OOC: Spectres work on their own, save for Commander Shepard. My opinion is no, but ask the others. Plus.. A spectre is kinda overkill. They're supposed to be the best of the best, and if they're the best of the best, I'd consider that veryyyy close to making your character too powerful.

This is a council task-force, so they would send a Specter to watch over it. And besides, there are turian specters up the wazoo, so not all of them will be super-powerful.

OOC: Yeah, I think it would be OK to have a spectre, although I think they would probably be assigned to lead a taskforce so I'm not sure of Oronk is experienced enough for that. ;)  Also, remember Garrus says at one point he was considered for the Spectres, along with about a thousand other Turians, so as Drake says they're not all super-powerful.

The ship shuddered as it's Mass Effect drive compensated for the ship's speed. Lux grabbed a hand-hold overhead, ussually to far out of reach for anyone and was designed to be used in a zero-g enviornment, to steady himself. The asari pilot gave her co-pilot a worried look. The co-pilot whispered to her friend,

"Just don't anger him and we'll be okay. By the goddess, he's a big one. He could snap me in half with one hand." She glanced back at Lux to check if he had herd. She was relived when he didn't say anything. She turned back to the console.

"Way to be descrite Massuma. But I agree, he's big for a Krogan. And look at his arms! They are huge, probably from ripping heads off." The pilot whispered back.

"Ok Nibla, I won't look at him." The co-pilot, Massuma, whispered in response.

"Don't worry girls, I wont kill you....yet. And you asari are too squishy to snap in half, Massuma. Rachni on the other hand, they have that nice exoskeleton and make a nice crunching sound when you rip thier heads off and punch thier chests in. And firing two shotguns that's recoil would break your arms single-handed gives me my big arms, Nibla. That, and my mother. She was a huge woman. Big enough to lift a Rachni and throw it seven yards." Lux said. He always enjoyed chatting with asari that thought he couldn't hear them. He just liked talking in general. He always took the time to clear up any misconceptions about Krogans people had.

"Um.....you heard all that did you?" asked the co-pilot. The pilot, Nibla, looked terrified. Lux chuckled.

"It's alright. No harm done Massuma....yet." Lux said. The pilot stiffened even more. Lux laid a huge hand on her shoulder and she screamed alittle.

"Calm down Nibla, I'm only joking. I have no interest in harming you or your friend." Lux said. The co-pilot looked relieved, but the pilot wasn't convinced.

"So, you fought in the Rachni wars?" Massuna asked. Lux looked at her. He liked these asari for some reason. They reminded him of his daughters, whom always thought thier father couldn't hear them, and alwaysed asked questions about his past. In a break from the ussual he decided to talk about his past.

"Yes. From the second the second we knew, untill the last rachni was stomped into the mud by my unit." Lux said. The Massuna continued.

"And the Krogan Rebellions?" she asked. Nibla's eyes widened at her friend.

"Curiosity is a good thing Nibla. No need to worry about asking a question that will offend me. And to answer your question Massuna, no. I was preocupied with my own problems, and wouldn't have fought if I weren't. Krogan weren't fighting eachother. Or a worthy enemy. We had such a high birth rate to survive the natural, and unatural attacks we had. Without natural attacks, we should have had plenty unnatural ones."

"But Krogans weren't killing eachother. We were colonizing. A distatsefull proposition. Sure, take a few worlds, but don't give up the fight. That is what it is to be krogan, to fight. But no, we colonized, and then attacked voulus and salarians and asari. And then when we had a good enamy to fight, we used asteroids and such. There is no honor in throwing a huge, unstobable rock at a planet. If we ripped Turians apart with our bare hands, and tossed them into walls with biotics, it would have been a good fight. But we were cowards and weekling. I thank the Salarians for the genophage. It forced us back to our honorable roots." Lux said vehimently.

"That's a view I've never heard before." Nibla said, tentativly, finally enerting the conversation.

Lux chuckled, a deep rumbling sound that almost made Nibla faint.

"Most Krogan haven't lived as long as I have. Or prospered like I have. I have two daughters and a wife on Tuchunka. My wife is mine only due to her lack of fertility. My daughters on the other hand, weren't so lucky. They are coverted like precious treasures by all males. Not that they aren't treasures, but just as breeding stock is insulting. The genophage weeded out the weak. I belive a Warloard Okeer shares my perspective, but unlike him I'm sane." Lux said. A Varren trotted up to Lux. It proped it's front legs up on the space between the two consoles. Massuma laughed as it licked her. Nibla squirmed away.

"Who's this adorable thing?" Massuma asked laughing as she pet the varren. She liked varren as she had a a pup growing up. Her father, a turian, had bred the more 'tame' varients.

"That's Mult. He's my hunting varren." Lux said." Nibla, don't worry, he's harmless unless I order him to attack. Or you're a Pyjak. But you're a bit big and don't have a tail." Lux said. Nibla, who had learned that Lux wasn't the type to lie, visibly relaxed.

"So, why are you going to the citadel." Massuma asked.

"I don't want to lie to you, so I won't answer. I'll say that I don't think it involves killing aything on the citadel. But I don't know the particulars." Lux said. He mentaly kicked himself for saying one sentance too much. It was possible to put together he was meeting an employer. But neither asari made the connection between his words.

OOC: Sorry for the lateness. Been sick/distracted.

Lavender eyes roamed over the multiple faces that were scattered around the level of the Wards, various races coinciding with each other. The low hum of voices were always in the air, just the way that Tavish liked it. Synthetic voices, and organic voices alike, riddled the nearby stores. Merchants tried to draw civilians into their stores to try and sell their merchandise by holding discounts or paying for advertisements that somehow managed to know everyone's names. Sometimes he would go in and browse, if not to browse then to actually buy something. It was the only way for him to find.. normal supplies. If he ever needed weapons or mods, there was always someone that he could find to make an arms deal with.

After a few minutes of making his way through the bustling crowds, his destination finally managed to come into view. A small smirk tugged at the corner of his lips as he read the bright words overhead; Citadel Security. It wasn't the most logical thing for him to do, to walk right into one of the many stations for C-Sec, but sometimes he had no choice. Though he was no longer directly connected with C-Sec, not everyone was quick to sever all connections with him. He was quite an asset, one that was no longer bound the many rules and restrictions that the typical C-Sec officer had.

Stepping into the dim blue lighting, he paused as he checked to see if the person he was looking for was actually in the building. One quick sweep of the area came back positive. Making his way over to one specific desk, he took a seat in the chair directly in front of it, startling the man opposite of him. The man jumped slightly, almost dropping the datapad in his hands before placing it down and rubbing a hand down his face. His eyes locked with Tavish's amused glance, irritation present as he sighed deeply as he leaned back in his chair, his expression hardening.

"Damn it, Tavish. I've told you before," His hand went up to point an accusatory finger at Tavish, "Don't sneak up on me like that."

A small grin made it to Tavish's face as he raised his hands up in mock defense, "What can I say, Captain. I try." A small groan came from the Captain as he shook his head in disapproval. The small amusement that Tavish was having managed to slide off of his face as he shifted in his seat, taking a more serious position contrary to his previous relaxed slouching. Now he just had to see if the Captain would deliver the punchline he had grown so accustomed to giving him.

"I swear, if I have to explain to another person why I'm not arresting you on sight, I'll shoot you myself."

Tavish chuckled slightly at the reminder of his.. relationship with C-Sec nowadays. Having been a previous dedicated officer for C-Sec, some people understood why he left and let him slip by many times. Then there were the others, or the new recruits, who only had it in their mind that he was nothing more than a criminal. Criminal was such a harsh term, especially for someone who was doing good. Vigilante was a more fitting term, but many people had mixed feelings about him. Leaning forward, Tavish laced his fingers together, "So, what've you got for me today?"

The Captain gave him a weary look before grabbing his datapad roughly, opening a list and browsing through it quickly before a realization dawned onto him. His eyes peered through the datapad's transparent screen at Tavish, "You'd think you'd be more interested in keeping yourself out of the fire.."

Confusion managed to sprawl onto Tavish's face, "What are you talking about?"

The Captain raised an eyebrow at him, surprise evident in his expression, "I'm surprised you haven't heard yet."

A confused stare from Tavish forced him to elaborate.

"The Council's alerted C-Sec to keep an eye out. For you and a few others, to be exact." As Tavish was about to open his mouth in objection, the Captain raised his hand up and stopped him, "For what reasons, I don't know. You know how the Council is. Vague and cryptic."

A stern expression was on Tavish's face as he took in the information. His mind raced to try and find some reason as to how he may have managed to piss off the Council. He hadn't done anything major in the past few weeks, so the question as to why the Council was interested in him remained unanswered. His eyes wandered from staring directly ahead of him back to the Captain, a curious expression on his face.

"I don't know what you did, but keep yourself safe. This conversation never happened." A coy smile appeared on the Captain's lips for a second before fading away.

Tavish hesitated to stand up and turned to walk away before looking over his shoulder back at the Captain, "That's the thing.. I don't know what I did."

Stepping out of the blue lighting, a growing concern managed to form in the pit of his stomach. He wanted answers, but it seemed too dangerous to even try. If the Council was actually looking for him, he wouldn't be able to hide for long. Not so long as information brokers existed.

The Quarian engineers had been working non-stop the past few hours to try and fix the problem, but with no joy.  What had seemed at first to be a simple fuel-line rupture had turned out to be a big job that meant taking apart most of the ship.  They were pushing their spare parts supply to the limits, and hoped they'd be able to fix the problem soon otherwise there would be no hop of getting the ship going again.

A few of the junior engineers were beginning to loose hope, probably because of the exhaustion of working so hard.  The rest of the engineering team were too pre-occupied to worry though.  Whenever they did take a moment to rest briefly, their first thought was on how long the emergency generator had left.  It could only be a few more hours, as they were never intended to power a ship for prolonged periods.  Once it went, the Quarians would have to rely on their suits for protection, but even then that would only last probably a few hours more.  Then, it was a question of what killed them first.  Suffocation, starvation or the cold.

Cody was busy sifting through the logs to see if he could spot any other problems that needed repairing.  He'd already found a few, but so far nothing major that might have been part of the current problem.  Every now and then the chief engineer would stop by to get an update, but Cody's response was always the same.

About an hour later, the chief engineer stopped by again for an update, and just as Cody was about to respond everything went dark.  Before anyone could say anything however all the systems came back online, except one.  Cheering began to sound throughout the engineering deck as everyone realised they'd fixed the problem, however a few seconds later reality set-in.  The artificial gravity wasn't back on yet due to the age of the generators.  Everyone began rushing in the zero-g for something to hold onto, but for most it was too late.  With no warning the artificial gravity came back on and all those not holding onto something fell to the deck, with all their tools landing on top of them.

"Looks like the infirmary will be busy." remarked the chief engineer.
"Yeah, definitely looks that way.  Still, I'm just glad the ship is working again." Cody responded.
"Aren't we all.  A few more hours and there would have been no escape for any of us.  I think I'd better head up to the bridge to update the captain and suggest to him we stop for more supplies.  Another problem like this and we'll have no choice but to abandon the Tuuri."

Abandoning a ship was a difficult decision for any Quarian.  The flotilla was the only home Quarians had, and so they spent most of their lives relying on their ships to keep them alive.  To abandon a ship meant there had to be  no way of saving it, and no way of using it for scrap.

"Let us hope it doesn't come to that.  Although I admit I am starting to believe what you said before we left the flotilla more and more."
"I just hope we have that long left."

The chief engineer turned and left, leaving Cody thinking about that day.  It was not unusual for Quarian ships to leave the flotilla for supply runs to places like the Citadel.  The orders had been met with some excitement for the crew of the Tuuri as it was good to see life outside the flotilla every now and then.  However, just before they left, the chief engineer said to Cody that he thought the Tuuri was seeing its last years, and that in only a couple of decades it would get to a state beyond repair and have to be scrapped.  Obviously, the past day had changed his mind, and he now thought they didn't have even that long left.  And if the chief engineer, the one who knows the workings of the ship more then anyone else, thinks that, then it has to be true.

OOC: I'll edit later, but let's keep vauge about the council, and keep that a gray area. Let's ultimately meet a representative, so we don't have to deal with if Shepard did/did not save it and if Udina or Anderson is the human representative.

Lux rolled his shoulders as the two asari took the ship into dock. Lux sighed. He rather liked the two asari and would rather like to keep in touch. He was very social for a Krogan and believed in making friends. Massuma tapped a few things into her omni-tool. Lux's chirped.

"I sent you my number. Keep in touch, it's not often I meet a Krogan who is as friendly as you." She said. Lux smiled under his helmet. He simply nodded. Nibla turned to face him in her seat.

"It was nice meeting you ....."Nibla paused, realizing she had never asked his name.

"Urdnot Lux." He told them. Nibla only nodded and held out a hand. Lux took it gently and shook it, careful not to squeeze too hard and grind her hand to dust. He had broken Krogan hands, so he had no idea what his normal vice-like grip would do to her hand. Massuma got up and hugged Lux, Massuma being one of those touchy-feely types. He waved as he and Mult entered the airlock. They waved back and began to pack up to leave.

[EQUALIZING INTERIOR PRESSURE WITH EXTERIOR ATMOSPHERE]

There was a hiss as the gasses left the pressurized airlock to allow transition without explosive decompression. He exited with Mult walking along obediently at his left. After a minute he managed to hail a taxi. Five minutes later he had persuaded the driver to take him. It took another two to let Mult come aboard. And then an additional three to get him to take him to the C-Sec main headquarters. As the taxi was almost out of sight, the cargo ship exploded. Lux snapped his head around to watch huge pieces of debris fall down to the level below. Lux cursed silently as a huge holographic image of a asari terrorist group's symbol appeared in the smoke and flames. The driver upped the speed.

"You part of that?" The driver asked nervously.

"No." Lux answered truthfully.

"Had friends on the ship?" The driver asked interested.

"Yes."Lux grunted. Mult stared at the flames and growled. He had liked the nice, skinny, blue, plateless, humpless Krogan who had patted him.

"Gonna do something about it?" the driver asked, turning to face Lux.

"The second I can." He answered with a snarl. The salarian took the hint, more of a command, and turned around and didn't say another thing.

OOC: I'm going to do a basic character draw-up and then we'll see where it goes from there. Feel free to criticize any possible mistakes, make suggestions and to offer opinions. BTW sorry it took so long.

-

Name: -None- (Geth)

Occupation: Geth Mobile Platform. Currently running 1,038 programs.

Class: Geth Infiltrator

Weapons: M-98 Widow Anti-Material Rifle, Geth Pulse Pistol, Geth Pulse Sniper Rifle. (semi-automatic)

Bio: Geth mobile platform prototype. Constructed an unknown time ago. Black/Dark Yellow Paint Scheme. No further data available.

Objective: To prevent further Geth heretic incursions against organics.


In the dark It waited.

Waiting for when the moment is right. That right time would come soon. But now It slept. Waiting.

-

OOC: For right now I stuck It in some ships hold. Seeing as a lot of people are on ships I thought I'd let someone tell me where its best for me to emerge. I'm not entirely oriented to where everyone is.

OOC: Well, since you made your character a Geth and the squad is going to be operated by and for the council, you're probably going to have to fly solo and eventually join up with them. It will probably end up with a confrontation though, since the Geth are the primary enemies. We need to get things moving and get the squad formed soon. I'll edit my post (or post if im not double posting) in later today. I can't post in the middle of school.  :yummy:

OOC: Don't worry, Talo.  I'll make it easy for you to know where I am. ;)

Thessia.  Homeworld of the Asari.  The Tuuri entered dock in orbit with a police escort.  Once they'd been cleared by customs the crew set about buying replacement parts and hiring local engineers to help patch up the outer hull.  The repairs would take days, which gave the crew time to try and gather more info on the reported Geth presence in the area.  Cody'Rama used his ex-Marine skills to get some very interesting information, including from a passing Justicar.  However, there still was not enough facts to go upon and, even with the support of the local security companies who were all too happy to let the Quarians deal with their creations, the crew had no idea exactly what they'd be facing.  Cody found himself going back into Marine mode, and started doing preparations he used to do before missions as a Marine.  No matter what, he knew that he'd be ready to deal with this mission.

Lux had a few hours to burn. He wandered around Zakara ward for a while. He eventually found a bar with quiter music, which to say was almost deafening sound. That left him in a bad mood. He hadn't ordered, and the jittery Volus serving man who was waiting for Lux to blow everything up didn't help his mood either. And the constant newreports of the ship's explosion playing the the opposite corner almost tipped him over the edge. Mult was laying at his feet, licking his front right claw. Lux was waiting for some drunk Turian or Human to try and start a fight. He needed to blow off some steam and the best was he knew how to do that was to throw a Turian across the room without touching him.

No more than 15 minutes after having first sat down did he have an opportunity. A drunk Turian hanging on an equally drunk human stood infront of him.

"What's a moron like you doing in a plash like theesh?" the Turian slurred. He and his friend laughed at their drunken joke.

"Breaking every bone in your bodies." Lux said in a monotone, normal decibel voice. The Human made a scooping motion with his right ear, as if to catch the words mid flight.

"What ya' say shupid?" The human asked. This time Lux said it louder.

"How ya' going to do thash, shupid?" The Turian asked and he pulled out a home-made pistol. The kind you hid in a bucnh of ordinary items, dissasembled to get past security. C-Sec needed to get a Krogan to do the searching. Nothing would get past a Krogan. Mabey when he retired that's what he would do. Lux flicked a finger up, lifting the pair into the air. He made a fliking motion with two of his fingers and sent them flying into a wall with enought force to break every bone in their body, just like Lux had said.

"That's how." He said. They were still alive. Just either passed out or in excrutiating pain. But they weren't screaming so it was thw first.

OOC: Talo and I figured out how to bring all of the story lines together. While the Task Force gets together, he will have his character's ship(he's in the hold on standyby) attacked by Heretics. He will awaken when the ships hits planetside and start to demolish the Heretic base. While he does that, the Task Force's first planet should have two Heretic bases. The ship we are on should get shot down. We continue the mission.  The first we go to should be in a state of disrepear due to Talo's geth. Then, once we accept him, the quarians will find us and render aid. Then the TF, Talo's Geth, and Flyboy's Quarian will attack and destroy base #2.

The repairs were coming along well.  There were plenty of companies operating on the station that had spare parts for even a relic like the Tuuri.  The crew were getting on with the repairs, which allowed Cody to have some time to explore the station.  He'd never been to Thessia before so he was interested to see what the homeworld of the Asari was like.  Although he couldn't get onto the surface, looking at it from orbit was enough.  He began thinking of what the Quarian homeworld could be like, and how he'd probably never even get to see it from orbit.

Many Captains were calling for the Quarians to start doing something to get them off the Flotilla and onto a planet, however they were divided on what to do exactly.  Some wanted to retake the homeworld from the Geth, some wanted to try to form an alliance with the Geth.  Some just wanted to colonise new worlds, but a lot of others thought their weak immune systems wouldn't be able to handle that.  Cody wasn't sure what he thought.  He'd never really had time to think about it before.  Looking out the window though, he started to believe going back to the homeworld was the best option.  His chain of thought was then interrupted by the stations PA system.

"Attention emergency crews, move to docking bay G6 immediately.  Damaged freighter inbound and requiring priority assistance.  All medical teams move to standby and prepare for casualties."

Cody saw emergency crew rushing in the direction of the docking bay.  He looked outside the window to the damaged freighter and was amazed at what he saw.  The Quarians gotten the Tuuri to Thessia whilst pretty badly damaged, but it now seemed like a bad scratch compared to the damage on this freighter.  Large sections of the hull were missing likely meaning there was no air inside.  Element Zero was leaking and drifting out behind the freighter.  The parts of the hull that were intact had lots of scorch marks on meaning they had to have been in a firefight.  The question now was who would be brave or stupid enough to attack a freighter so close to the homeworld of one of the Citadel Council races?

OOC: Flyboy, is that supposed to be the Task Force's ship or a ship that had been attacked by the Geth? And I need for someone to post something with the Council representative to post Lux meeting the reprasentative.

It took C-Sec five minutes to respond to the bartender's frantic calls. They approached Lux now.

"Sir, did you attack these men?" One asked, a turian.

"No." Lux said flatly.

"Then can you explain how the bartender saw you biotically throw the pair across the room?" The other, a human, asked.

"I defended myself. The Turian had a home-made pistol. He threatened me with it, and I responded. Krogan don't mess around." He said. Mult shaked his head, as if agreeing.

"Sir, this varren can't be here. We will have to impound it." the turain officer said. Lux stood, towering over the officers. They both took a step back and edged their hands closer to their pistols.

"No you don't. He has all the proper papers." Lux said as he pulled out the papers from the back of his boot. He opened the water-tight case and handed the papers to the human. The human was caught off-guard, but still managed to keep enough of his composure to check the papers.

"They are in order sir, but you will have to get new ones next month." he said handing them back.

"And do you have a license for those?" the turian asked pointing at the shotguns. Lux pulled out another set of papers from the case.

"I have papers for everything, except my reason for staying here. That's top-secret. Employee-Employer confidentiality. Actually, I think at the moment we work for the same people." Lux said as he got his licenses back. The human paled, the turian he couldn't tell. They had been told to look out for a krogan mercenary who was working for the council, and to direct him to the representative he would meet.

"Sir, we were told that if we saw you, to send to the presidium, C-Sec office. There the representative will meet you." The human said as they left with the paramedics.
