"Point me to your best lead and I'll be on it." Bianca said, quietly eager to get this started...and finished.
-He looks back at the screen-
I ain't goin' anywhere, Cop Lady, fingers crossed! Solvin' a murder mystery sounds like a lot of fun, I'm all in on it!
-All right... So they're going to be staying at the hotel Norm Andrews was staying at...-
-Some of them will be going around and asking hotel staff questions, others will be going to see the coroner... and then there are the ones that will go check in with the local police.-
-...'Racist hillbilly rabbit trails'...?-
-He's rather worried about what seem to be arguments and rising tension, but for now he's keeping silent about that. He has to remain focused on their job.-
-...What the heck is he supposed to be doing...? He's never dealt with all of this before... Sure he's been studying and training for the moment of his first case, but when shoved into the real thing...-
-...O-Oh, Mendez is speaking to him...-
-He puts on a small smile, hopefully convincing.-
"Y-Yes, I'm fine..."
-Being in his first case... Nerve-wracking... Not to mention that it's a very serious one with a serial killer running around...-
-...They have to stop this guy before he can hurt anyone else...-
-He can be seen clutching his notes tightly.-
"I-It's just a little overwhelming is all... So many experienced people..."
-He really is worried he won't be able to keep up...-
"...But I'll do my best to help everyone!"
-Despite his nervousness and tension you can still see a spark of determination in his eyes.-
-Marc jolts awake at Logan's nudging-
Mrrh... are we there yet?
-he blinks, noticing the Tv Screen-
Aha. I slept through the briefing, didn't I?
-he smiles tiredly, rubbing his unshaven face-
-Connor simply nods, making a few mental notes of what Mendez said-
Ahhh... I might not wanna be the one to visit the police station if it's this part of Texas. Get people off on the right foot and all.
-He flicks his hand into a point affirmatively-
Hear you loud and clear otherwise.
(Midoriya, for lack of a truer term, looks floored)
("He's part of the investigation?!")
(Mendez mentioned something of him being a prodigy... so he was just that good at investigating?)
(in any case, he was in no position to doubt this move, so he simply took note of orders being given)
("I guess I could try asking around the hotel... it's the site of the last murder after all, someone could've seen something... oh!")
(he raises his hand like a schoolkid)
Could I ask if this is everyone in the bus? Everyone in the EITF, I mean?
(behind the old man, a twenty-something blond fellow with resting-bitch face◊ follows behind him)
(he looks like he's looking for someone)
(he loiters around Kain and Dia for now)
Goddamn Uber... took forever. And somehow I'm still early, looks like.

... Yes. Yes, of course. It's safe with me.
-Jayden gently checks to make sure he has it, just as a formality-
Dia picked up a fancy looking pen from breast-pocket, with the name "Muhamad Ali" carved onto it, spinning it around in her right hand as she put down her computer for a second to reminisce, a calm yet happy expression on her face.
"Martinez huh? Wow that was 2 years ago now, that was my peak year, good fight, she almost beat me, challenges like that is what I damn live for, well, outside of Chemistry of course" Machina laughed and gazed nonchalantly at the floor, as she said her piece she still seemed to be slightly unfocused.
"Good sport though Marty has some damn spirit she swore to beat me down one day. Oh and then invited me to her freakin' home for dinner too. She's a good fuckin' cook"
Maxwell glanced at the newcomers for a second, before turning her full sight towards both, squinting as she inspected them from afar before putting her laptop again on her lap and begun typing again, her focus now on the screen, now her fingers moved slowly, like she was giving the finishing touches to her story.
(@Driver) (speaking up) Not at all, good sir. I've been on many cases like this before.
(@Midoriya) I'm sure this is everyone. I probably did a mental count twice just to be sure.

(Neil, uh, I mean, Lockon sighs) Well, as long he doesn't get himself stuck in a stupid situation, we'll be fine.
...Jeez, this case is something else.
Don't even worry, I'll just email you all the cliff's notes. You've been traveling for hours, I'd doze off too.
As for Midoriya's question... No, there will be a few more coming on their own. Shadow is one of them, just a fair warning. If he starts acting up, please let me know immediately.
(oh no... HIM)
Good to hear, Jayden. And all of you, I'm giving you the liberty to disperse among the tasks as you see fit. If you feel like the cops would eat you alive, do something else, I won't mind. It's a big town, and there's lots of potential leads. As much as I hate those pigfuckers, I bet they'll be able to point you towards some locations or witnesses or something.
(Smiles back at Aichi... Then goes serious again.)
One final thing. We have some younger agents among us for this mission. Luffy is one of them, and there's a handful that have just graduated and are taking this on as their first bit of fieldwork. Very bright kids, I've spoken to each of them and can vouch for their abilities. Please, for the love of God, if you're more seasoned, look after these boys and make sure they're safe. I know everyone here is an adult, but I want everyone, especially my rookies, safe and sound by the end of this investigation. Is that understood?
(The bus is now in town, and driving past what appears to be a subway station...?◊ How odd for such a small town. A large and rather murky creek◊ can be seen from the side of the road as well.)
SHIT, THAT'S COOL. WOULDN'T HAVE GUESSED YOU TWO WOULD HIT IT OFF SO WELL FROM HOW FIERCE YOU WERE IN THE RING, BUT MAYBE THAT MAKES IT ALL THE MORE INTENSE. IF YOU'VE GOT ANY MORE GOOD FIGHT STORIES IN YOU, I'D LOVE TO HEAR THEM.
(Turns to the blond fellow and Disa, dusting off his lapels.)
Checking in, sir and madam?

-His eyes wander doubtfully towards Aichi and Koata, but he nods anyway-
You sound like a Mom, Cop Lady.
-Nods, before loudly clearing his throat and trying to get the bus's attention-
Excuse me, everyone, may I have your attention? For those of you who haven't met me before, I'm Agent Norman Jayden. I am part of the ARI introduction program, and have been entrusted with special investigative equipment. In light of this I suggest that I be dispatched to investigate the crime scene... erm, that is all. Thank you for your time.
-He has a bizarre accent, somewhere in New England but there's something off about it. He sounds like JFK on painkillers-
35-year old Agent Samantha Kiley, recently transferred to the unit, stepped out of her car and made a beeline for the hotel doors, files in hand.
-...'Shadow'... That name sounds familiar... Like he's heard of him before...-
-However, before he can really think much more about that, Aichi feels Shotaro's gaze on him and gets a nervous expression again.-
-He silently wonders if his fellow agents think little of him.-
-...Wouldn't be the first time he's been looked down on...-
-...He can't afford to linger on those thoughts.-
-He is rather thankful that Mendez is trying to watch out for all of the rookies, but at the same time he feels sort of... well, coddled.-
-He keeps silent about this as well.-
-He's going to try to stick somewhat close to the more experienced agents. He can learn from them, and maybe, just maybe he'll be able to provide some valuable assistance.-
-He then hears Jayden...-
-...Maybe he should introduce himself...? After all, he doesn't know everyone on the team, and it'd be good to know everyone...-
"Um... I-I'm Aichi Sendou. It's a pleasure to be working with you all!"
-...Well, other than what they have to do. Serial killer going around killing people is not a pleasure.-
-Such a nice guy...-
-...WHAT IS HE DOING HERE?!-
Edited by CrystalMemoria on Jul 11th 2018 at 4:13:41 AM
"... Mm, pleasure to meet you, Jayden. As for introductions here... I'm Gertrude Blackbourne, America's finest brain, if I say so myself! Honestly, if anything needs think work, just come to me, nyehe!"
"'''... Mm. As for me, I'm Rushd bin Hanam, but please, just call me Hanam . I'm a bit old, and I've been doing this- likely longer than some of you could walk! but this is my first time doing field work in years. Frankest apologies if I fall behind."
-rubs his face again-
I guess I'll go say howdy to the cops. Might as well.
-he talks like a New Yorker-
-A tiny, gray hybrid car drives up alongside the bus, apparently headed for the same destination-
-The license plate reads EGG-MAN-
-The more seasoned of the bus passengers may recognize the driver and his own passenger - Dr. Ovi Kintobor, aka “Dr. Eggman,” and Agent Shadow, discreetly nicknamed “Shadow the Hedgehog” due to his...”prickly” disposition-
-The car is blasting a bizarre song out the open window-
-Pulling up beside Eggman's gray old car is a burning orange corvette, that is to say the colour could be described as burning, as of now it has not been set alight to collect any lucrative insurance-
-The driver, a brown-haired, blue jacketed man whose age is hard to place, takes a long sniff-
Ah, that new mystery smell. I knew it was smart to buy this.
-He tapped a question-mark shaped air freshener dangling from the rear-view-
Hm? Ah, I was wondering who you were back there. Shotaro Hidari. Been around a while. Hey, what's—
-Glances back out the window, scowling at Eggman's volume courtesy, and then looks back-
What is ARI?
-Aichi looks out the window at the vehicle driving by, and the people inside of it.-
-...Interesting music! Although it's a tad loud...-
-He gets a sheepish expression as it starts passing by... He then sees the license plate.-
-'EGG-MAN'... That sounds familiar too... Where did he hear about him...? Did he hear about them back before he got assigned to this case?-
-...Ah, he supposes it doesn't really matter...-
-Although he feels a little guilty. He doesn't like forgetting people...-
-Both him and Shadow...-
-However, he switches his attention away from that and switches his attention to Jayden upon hearing Shotaro's question.-
-It's a good question. Aichi has no idea what ARI is...-

Mars Zerickas. Pleasure to meet all of you.
-More or less ignores the general loudness-
