Sarah: I-I... I don't know, but... I think my mind is literally... t-tearing itself apart for some reason... the one with the mask used to be my sensible aspect, but now... s-she's changed... she became E-Elda, and...
-She clutches the chain-
Sarah: I-I thought I was getting better...
Psyche nods. "Do you know anywhere that might be safe? At least for like 5 minutes or so? I might be able to do something. I can't promise anything, but maybe I can do a little bit to give us a little bit of comfort."
Lucius takes a deep breath.
Lucius: ...Okay, we need to calm down and think about this. Figure things out. I was hoping I'd never see that thing again, but freaking out about it won't help. Do you think this could be related to what happened with Eskay? Like, maybe it's a delayed reaction to the split or something?
He looks down at the chains and groans.
Lucius: Ugh, it's situations like this that make me wish I still had my powers... one Force Palm would shatter these chains like glass.
Shade bows his head.
"Forgive me, I meant no harm. My sincerest apologies...."
Jiraiya smiles, and then vanishes. Before Shade realizes it, hes pulled under.
Ren: -To Sylva and Regina- Thank you.
Ren: -grins- I designed the casing. I had to commission the actual products from a goldsmith I know.
-Takes a sip of his tea-
I found the design for the covers in the Holon Museum when I was working with them with the Time Flowers...
-Bitter memories arise thinking about the second set of time flowers...-
Ren: The crest was on the helmet of a warlord that looked like and older version of you. If I recall the man's name correctly, the warlord's name was Celvet.
-Sarah shakes her head rapidly at Psyche-
Sarah: Nonono, w-we... we just need to leave...
-Sarah hesitates, then exhales-
Sarah: ...I-it... could be because of the split... Elda used to be the Heart aspect, but that was a male one...
-She follows the ruined street down toward the train station-
Sarah: There's only one other female aspect, come to think of it, and I don't think she plans to do anything...
Psyche nods. "Noted. Let's get going then. Any idea where the most deadly place in the area would be then? ...That's not back the way we came?"
Lucius looks thoughtful.
Lucius: A certain amount of reshuffling would make sense... aspects tend to be the same gender as whoever the mindscape belongs to. Maybe after the split, all the male aspects ended up with him and all the female ones stayed with you. Or I could be totally wrong. That's not a rare occurrence, after all...
He glances around, following behind Sarah.
Lucius: Getting out of here sounds like a good idea, though. Assuming the train station hasn't been blown up too.
Psyche nods. "For once, I agree."
Sarah: That's my guess...
-She's managed to stop trembling, but is still very obviously nervous-
Sarah: Anyway, if things are still the same, the exit is in the train station, which... hopefully still isn't a dangerous place. If I've only got female aspects, then my only fears are at each other's throats behind us...

Jacob: -Grins- "Oh I can imagine, I don't think you're a goldsmith. Clothing is one thing, casting intricate designs out of molten metal? I think a man can only have so many talents."
-Pauses, and nods- "Oh yeah, Celzvet Kaeqiri, I'm a direct descendant of his, as is Crow, ironically, and really? It was still our family crest all the way back then? Huh. It's on a few things at the manor. Or. Was. Mostly Rayquaza statues that were destroyed. I'll need to replace those... But yeah. I need to ask him why that's our crest..."
-Muses, his gaze going past Ren and miles into the distance- "Prior to that, looking at earlier era works I've found depictions of the profile of a roaring Aggron and a Scythe crossed. And those were tied to Celzvet's great great grandfather. But those were excavated in the underwater ruins in Unova... I still want to check around and see if those were buried there normally or if those were stolen or bought and shipped there..."
Zeal: ...Well, that happened.
Psyche nods. "Well, that's good then. Let's make sure we go quickly, then."
Lucius: Only one way to find out if it's still safe.
He moves to head up the party as they continue towards the train station.
-Gogie hears mention of Celzvet and descendants-
Gogie: "Ah, yeah, that guy."
Sticy Lips: <He's silly.> :)
Jack: ....and that's Shade for you. :P
Shade rises to the surface in a bubbly froth.
"I swear to Arceus that was a dirty trick!"
He is currently wrestling with a Greninja in water. If Zeal and Jack can't tell already it is a folly endeavor.
<Well, look who's talking. I wonder what happened five minutes ago?>
As much as Shade is wrestling with his Mon, again the others can tell that a certain frog has the upper hand.
Zeal: Last time I met him that Greninja sorta started a chain of events that led to my computer breaking. I wonder if something like that will happen again.
-As they enter the station, they'll notice that everything is heavily damaged, but it's quiet for now. There's no sign that anything is going to hurt them.-
Sarah: Okay, good sign so far...
Ren: -raising an eyebrow- "Ask him"?
-Blinks at gogie's and Sticy Lips' response.-
Let me guess. Celvet was one of the ghosts that was populating the Iri Manor? Or is some we know his reincarnation that just happened to retain his memories of his past life?
-Mendel, Lumen and Lucinda finish of their meals in the mean time-
-Mendel has turning to look at Pent and Silent in awe every few seconds.-

Lucius, on the other hand, doesn't seem quite as reassured.
Lucius: ...This place looks pretty beat up. Are we sure the trains are still running, so to speak?
Jack: I hope not.
Oh, Overkill, could you help him out?
Overkill: -in his worst Mafia accent possible- <Shuwa ting, bwoss!>
-he jumps in the air and belly-flops right next to Shade and the frog-
Jack: ....I guess that works.
Jacob: "Ahah, well, um-" -Looks a little awkward-
"You may remember Lucanus was blamed for Celzvet's death. What if I told you he didn't die but was turned into a Pokemon? A very particular Pokemon. And said Pokemon swore eternal vengeance and built up an army?"
"... Okay yeah getting to the point Celzvet actually became the Bisharp we knew as Edge."
-Joseph may be about-
Sarah: They never actually were running in the first place. From what it looks like, this place is abandoned. The exit is just a doorway.
-She looks down at the chains.-
Sarah: ...Do you want to just hope these chains go away when we get back to reality, or...?
