*One of the men escorting Illusia slides a card through another scanner, and the reinforced metal door slides open. The door leads into a small amphitheater style briefing room, with seating for 15 people. A small podeium sits atop a short dais. The room's only living occupant is a tall human male with green hair.

Meanwhile, Andraele has gone to his private room and has begun to read over the files to learn the names and abilities of those he is to train, as he waits for the last two members of the team to arrive.*

You are to wait here for further instructions.

*The guard swipes the card again and the door hisses shut.

A knock sounded on the door of Andraele's room, and the door immediately slides open, and another government agent stepped into the room.*

Sir, two of the members of the new team have arrived. The other two have encountered delays and will be here as quickly as their escorts can get them here. The General would like you to start the briefing now.

*Andraele sighs before standing up.* Show me to the briefing room.

*Andraele and the agent leave Andraele's private quarters and begin walking down the hall. They come to the briefing room where Illusia and Pulp are waiting. The agent slides his key card through yet another scanner (there seem to be an unlimited supply of the damn things) and yet another reinforced metal door slides open. Andraele steps through, opposite the side of the room that Pulp and Illusia entered. He walks over to the podeium and drops the files on top of it.*

I know you probably have a lot of questions, so before you ask I will answer as many of them as I can. You are here because you are special, you have abilities that are uniqe, in a sense anyway.

*He gestures towards Pulp.*

For instance, you have great strength, far beyond that of any normal human. And your companion here can weave illusions. That is where the differences end, research done more than twenty years ago has found that people like you all have an extra set of genetic markers, concealed among the rest of your DNA structure. This allows these abilities to manifest, though the exact manifestation seems to vary by the individual despite the fact that the markers are all identical. It was this nation's government that discovered these similarities, and the used that knowledge to begin to find more people like you. Under the code name Superman, they began to men and women with these talents to become extremely effective field agents. However, twenty years ago, the project ran out of funding, and was forced to be disbanded. Almost all of the original subjects were killed in the following two years. They were killed by an organization calling themselves the Shadow Knights. Many of the Shadow Knights were members of the original Superman Project. Others were not, but the one thing they all have in common is that they, like you, possess abiliities far beyond the norm for humans, elves, and half-elves. The Shadow Knights went into hiding for eighteen years after they killed off many of the members of the original Superman project, but have resurfaced in recent years. They have been causing havoc around the world and will become a threat to the U.S. itself if something is not done. That is why the program has been restarted, and a new team was formed, consisting of four new members with a member of the original project to watch over and train them. Any questions so far?

*Andraele looks at Pulp.*

You have never been told that elves exist because they are a reclusive people. Most stay hidden, the few that integrated with Human society use simple illusion spells to mask themselves as Humans.

As for how the Shadow Knights are going to be stopped, that is what you were recruited for. There is a full team of specialists attempting to predict their movements and isolate their primary bases of opperations. It is my job to make sure that you will be as prepared as you can be to face them when the time comes. The team's first priority is to capture the SK members we encounter, if that objective becomes more complicated than it needs to be we are authorized to kill them.

Starting today you will begin a training regemine to strengthen your abilities and grow stronger. My name is Elemental, and I will be your instructor for that portion of your training. The other portion will be classes where you will be learning what we know of our enemies abilities and resources.


*In the office room where Breeze is located, the sound of gunfire issuse from the hallway outside. One of the men in the room with Breeze signals for the other three to go see what the ruckus was. They pull out pistols and begin to charge down the hallway torward the noises. More gunfire sounds closer to the room, and a few moments later a government agent kicks the door in. Squeezing off two shots from his hand gun he put a bullet through the last man's heart, and another directly between his eyes. He holsters the pistol on his belt and turns to Breeze. Three more agents follow him in a few seconds later.*

We have orders to bring you with us. Any questions you may have will be answered when we arrive.

*Andraele's eyes flick to the painting, and the bullets are thrown back and drop to the floor, rolling back to Pulp as a sudden blast of gale force wind knocks him to the ground, without disturbing anything else in the room.*

While I can understand your wish to get started, shooting a painting is hardly the way to go about it. And as you can see, your gun will be no more useful than a paperclip against some of the enemies you will face. Some would have used your own bullets against you. Now if you would be so kind as to follow me, we can get you two started while we wait for the others to arrive.

*Andraele walks to the door he entered from and keys it open. He turns left as he step into the hall

*Andraele stops.*

Lexa, have you ever wondered what happened to the man you loved? He was found in an alley, badly wounded. He was brought here, but died shortly after. He was like us, he could regenerate any part of his body, could regrow limbs, but his abilities were warped, and that ability began to try to regenerate parts while others were still intact. It lead to his death, and I remember that it was quite painful for him. But with his dying breath he made one request of me. He wanted me to give you this, and he wanted me to tell you that he loved you.

*He reaches in his pocket and pulls out a small black box. The box glides from his hand to Lexa on a slight breeze.*

What happened to him is something I had only seen twice before, and I know of only one person who could do something like that. He was a former member of the original Superman project, and he had the ability to destroy or accelerate the powers of others, he can force your own power to destroy you and then use it against those you care about. He is now the most powerful member of the Shadow Knights, and he is the only one that we dare not go after directly, not now. All around him follow him out of fear, and will not turn against him knowing that if they do so, he will kill them all. He cares nothing for anyone or anything in this world, he relishes in destruction and pain. He has killed people that I care about, my wife, and my closest friend were among them. I plan to see this through to the end, and I hope that you will as well.

Everything about this character says evil.

It is not why you stay that matters, but that you stay. I am sorry to have put that as bluntly as I did but it was necessary. His death hurt me as well, Jeremy and I were close friends. Now, we will head to the training room.

*Andraele leads the way down the hall to the training room, a large circular room with a domed ceiling, easily six hundred feet across, and two hundred feet high. The walls are reinforced concrete and the doors heavy blast doors.*

Due to the purpose that this room was made for, it is the most durable room in the entire facility. It is here that you will train your powers to make them as powerful as possible. Now, before we move on there are two types of powers: the first are active powers, those that require the user to consiouly act to make something happen; and the other are passive powers, requiring no consious thought and just happening on its own. One thing that both have in common though is that if you can train your mind and keep it calm, your power becomes greater. While the passive abilities do not require any thought to use, a mind that is focused on what you are trying to do will make your power stronger than it would otherwise be. On the other hand, a clouded mind will cause your power to weaken. The benefit and consequenses are more pronounced with the active abilities however. To begin with why don't we see what you are capable of doing right now. Lexa if you would be so kind as to go first.

Good. Bob, your next.

*Andraele reaches into his pocket and pulls out a remote. He presses one of the buttons on and door in the ceiling pulls up and out of the room, a 2000 pound weight is lowered to the floor over a blue ring.*

Pick it up.

While entirely possible, it is highly unlikely. Most powers seem to manifest uniquely to each individual, your strength and her illusions will likely never blend in one person. But I have met one person who had no ability that manifested itself as ours do, but he could manifest, control, and steal the powers of others.

*Andraele points back to the weight.*

Now pick up the weight and carry it back, stand in the middle of the blue ring and just hold it up.

Just let know when it reaches a point where you can't hold it anymore.

*Andraele begins to spin a dial on the control, as he does a digital readout on the side of the weight lights up displaying the current weight of the object. The blue ring on the floor begins to glow at the same time. A couple seconds later the digital display begins to climb, the positioning prevents Bob from being able to see it.*

*Andraele stops spinning the dial, the display reading 16538 pounds. He lets go a slight whistle.*

That's impressive, just over eight times earth's normal gravity. Now I want you to concentrate, focus on holding the weight in the air, clear your mind of all other thoughts. Your only concern is that weight and holding it above you. It should begin to feel lighter.

*He turns his gaze to Lexa.*

I want you to distract him and break his concentration. I want you to push your abilities as far as you can. Incorporate this entire room into your illusion.

OOC: Open Challenge to anyone who wishes to fight. Also I will be using my new character Elemental.

IC:

*Elemental stands at the center of a large plateau, 400 meters across it proves to be an excellent training ground. The stormclouds overhead bring the promise of rain and lightning.*

Good. *He thought to himself.* The weather is perfect for my training today.

*He closes his eyes and reaches his consiousness into the ground. Stone targets the size and shape of men appear, bull's eyes on the chest and head. He opens his eyes and pulls his single diamond bladed wakizashi free of it's scabbard. He had forged the weapon with his own power, and the blade is of the hardest calibur, the edge so sharp as to cut a hair that were to drift down and land upon it. He leaps up into the air, a blast of wind lifting him higher into the sky. Using his free hand he pulled a lighter from a pocket and lit it, a small ball of flame forms above. Putting the lighter away, he reaches his other hand towards the sky. Lightning flashes as it connects with his outstretched hand, and begins to arc between his fingers. The rain begins to fall shortly after, and he reached out and formed a second orb, this one of water. Throwing his hand down, he unleashes three lightning bolts that thunder into three of the targets. The rain begins to come down more heavily, and natural lightning strikes closer together.*

*Andraele watches the scene unfolding before him. Due to his affinity with water he knows full well that the room is not flooding, allowing him to completely ignore the enchantment Lexa was casting.*

Bob, the water and the spiders are irrelevent, if you drop that weight two weeks from now, it will cost you the lives of one or more of your teammates. Focus on that one goal, the weight must stay up. That is all that matters right now.

OOC: Was a little mix up with Lil Miss's Character, the part of the last post I had made with her is scratched from the record. Sorry about that.

IC:

*The same General that met Andraele walks into the room where Breeze is waiting.*

I appologize for the inconvenience of making you wait here, but I just recieved word that you had arrived. If you will follow me, I will take you to the training room where your future teammates have already begun testing their abilities. I will fill you in on what you missed while you were here on the way.

*He leads the way to the training room where Lexa, Bob, and Andraele are located. Giving the same speech to Breeze that Andraele gave in the briefing room almost word for word (I don't want to have to type it all out again). He opens the door on arrival and steps into the rising water.*

Son-of-a-bitch. Andraele I'll have your head for this insult.

*Andraele turns to the door.*

Ah, General your here. Why might I ask?

*The General's face has turned a brilliant lobster red, but he seems to have regained a little dignity in the middle of it all.*

(General) One of your other students has arrived.

*Delrond stands in a pool of spreading blood. He held the old priest pinned to a wall, his hateful dagger protruding from the smaller man's stomache.*

Tell me how I can get the power, and I may decide to be merciful and kill you quickly.

*The old man squirmed as Delrond slowly pressed the dagger further into him, giving it slight twists to increase the man's suffering. Nothing but coughs of blood and cries of pain issue from his mouth as tears steam down his face. He tries to tell Delrond that he knows nothing of what he speaks, but is unable to.*

THERE HE IS!! GET HIM!!

*Five city guardsmen rush around the corner, weapons drawn. A smile passes across Delrond's face as lets the priest drop. Reaching back, he pulls the double axe off his back, the sheer evil radiating from the weapon seemed to stop the guards in their tracks, one stepped back as if considering running.*

What is wrong? Just a second ago you wanted a fight. You're not aloud to leave here alive now.

*Delrond leaps forward, cleaving the guard in half with a single swing, rotating the axe, he spun the weapon up and around him, taking the life from three of the remaining guards, but just the sword arm of who he assumed was the group leader. Grabbing him by the throat he slammed him into the wall.*

Tell me how I can get my hands on the power and I will be merciful.

As you can see General, I had nothing to do with this.

*The General looks down at his uniform, now completely dry. He glares at Andraele for a moment before turning his gaze to PulP.*

I am General Maximillion Newton Marshall, Seargent. You would do well to remember that.

*Andraele turns to the others.*

You can call him M&M for short. We used to before the initial program was shut down.

*Andraele looks past Maximillion to see the new arrival.*

I'm Andraele, I will be your instructor to help you bring your abilities to their full potential. This is Lexa, the and man over there is Bob, they are your fellow teammates. There is one more who is supposed to join you.

*Andraele powered down the gravity field, a crane arm descended and pulled the weight back up into the ceiling. A large stone spike suddenly drives up through the floor where Breeze is standing.*

*Andraele reached out and grabbed the ball of fire, reaching over he placed his palm over the hilt of his wakizashi. Sliding his hand over the length of the blade, flame began to burn along its length. The flames waver and fight against the rain, but fail to go out. Hidden behind the flames, unseen, is a portion of the electric charge from the first lightning bolt. Sensing a disturbence on the ground, he throws another lightning bolt at it.*

If you do not train, you will never be capable of defeating the enemy we are going up against. You will train, you can do so alone or with the rest of the team's help.

*Concentric stone rings burst out of the ground around Breeze at the exact same moment as a wall seals the door. These stone rings are spaced an even 3'6" feet apart and spread across the entire room. The speed of these rings are moving at 20 times the initial spike and reach 110 feet into the air.*

Not souless, just wary.

*Elemental twists aside as the hammer flies past, another blast of air launching him up and to the left should it loop back around. He raises his left hand and a ball of lightning forms above it, joining the ball of fire and the ball of water. Throwing his hand forward, the balls launched forward, arcing in at Sorcha from above and to each side, water on the left, fire in the middle, lightning on the right.*

I don't care for people who spy on my training.

A group of people working alone just get in each other's way. Only through working together do they become a team, and only through working together can they hope to become more powerful.

*The stone rings drop back into the ground, the floor becoming perfectly smooth once more.*

It appears to me that you rely on your speed far more than you should, without pushing it past what you have reached thus far. While you would be untouchable to your average person, our enemies are far from average, and will be capable of countering your speed. This is a mistake many have learned at the cost of their lives, I hope you will learn that lesson before the price becomes that high.
