Shadow nods grimly.
"The first thing that seemed off was when the fake claimed he 'expelled' the Metatron you absorbed from the Lizard. Impossible. Also, he knew my name and that I was a God. I only told you after you became Royal. And I have reason to believe Greyface is in on this, as his name was brought up. Also, I believe the Shapeshifter to be named Envy."
Katniss actually flinches in response to Lucas' words to her and Claus as well as the glare, then turns to the red-haired twin. "Claus, I'm not trying to be rude or anything, but... your brother's starting to scare me..."

"Huh.. Shapeshifter... What shapeshifters can I think of that were in this arena..." She thinks of Craig. "Nah... Who else... Envy...That would fit, I guess.." She says all of this loud enough for people nearby to hear.
Oops, Sacred got to it before me.

Now, is this the Homunculus Envy?
Katniss may notice that Claus's arm is shaking a bit. It appears he's scared too.
"I-It's probably nothing to be worried about. H-he's probably just venting.", he whispers to Katniss.
Ionia's looking pretty tense as well. She probably had not imagined that it was this serious already.
Lucas hears the name Envy from both Shadow and Daydre.
"Envy? So Greyface has new allies. And I bet his other allies don't even know that. I've seen Greyface behind his mask, so it doesn't surprise me at all that he'd pull a stunt like that. Plus, he'd know that information. It makes sense. That means that Greyface has something they want, or can get that, and will give it to them if they do something for him."
He looks at Terry.
"You could just be covering up for them. ...But I don't really care. I'm not going to attack any of you. Not in a time like this."
He looks at Shadow.
"Do you know how we could bait them out, or what they want? ...Or maybe what Greyface wants?"
@Sacred: Yep. From Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.
Terry then remains quiet afterwards. He looks at Claus, Ionia and Katniss briefly. He keeps on listening to the conversation, but doesn't talk.

"Still, it almost sounded like he was about to outright attack us," Katniss says to Claus. "And judging by how your arm was shaking, I'd say that you were a little frightened too."

Shadow lowers his head.
"Once, he tried to steal a fake Apple of Enlightenment from Niuue. I don't know what his plan is, but he's coldly calculating. Now, I must be off. I need to process this great amount of information. Farewell."
Shadow bows formally, the Sentry says goodbye, and they leave for the Waygate.

Claus looks at Katniss.
"S-shaking? No, t-that's just a glitch. I'm a Chimera, remember? My arm's made of metal."
His tone of voice makes it clear that he's just not willing to admit that Katniss is right. Is it his pride? Or is it something else?
He is a little more pale than a scared person would be too.
"Maybe that's it. Maybe Envy is going to pretend to be me so he can just get into the mothership, get the Apple and walk back out."
He closes his eyes, pondering. Then he opens them again, grinning.
"So all I have to do is wait for Envy to eventually show up in the mothership, then ask him what he's after. I'll even offer him to help him so that he'll break his deal with Greyface!"
"Of course, that's all a trap. When we're close to what they want, my followers and I will tear him apart. And anyone he might be allied with. Then there'll be already a little less evil in the world!"
"In the end... who will remain? "Evil" Is a term relative to the perceived good. For the evil, evil can be good and good can be evil."

Terry remains silent in the background.
"Are you thinking about something?" Daydre walks over to Terry.
He looks at Ganondorf.
"The ones who will remain are the innocent. Everything else is evil, and will be destroyed. That's what will happen during my time as King of Metatron."

"So you are Judge, Jury, and Executioner?"
Terry looks at Daydre.
"...Yeah, but I rather not talk about it." He says to her. But then he hears the innocents survive and others are evil and will be destroyed part. He starts to snap out from his sad expression and is actually showing a angrier expression. Lucas shouldn't be able to see it since Terry's back is facing him, but Claus, Ionia, Daydre and Katniss can see it. He is clenching his fist too.

"Well, judging by your voice and how pale you are, I think you might actually be at least a bit scared," Katniss says to Claus. "Are you just too proud to admit it or something?"
"This isn't from being frightened. I'm actually getting a little sick, is all."
"Metatron is the Judge. Lucas is the Jury. The King is the Executioner. When I'm finished, the innocents will never be harmed by anything again, and families like mine can live in peace forever."
He then shows a sad smile.
"Mom would have wanted it that way."
At this point, Claus looks even more shocked. Then he glares. And then he begins to walk away. He looks at Katniss, Daydre and Terry.
He doesn't say anything, but his expression clearly says 'I'm not staying here to listen to this kind of crap, and neither should any of you.'
Then he walks further. Lucas just watches, not saying anything.

Katniss runs after Claus. "Claus, wait! I just wanna tell you something before you leave," she says to the boy before giving him a hug. "I'm sorry about what happened to Lucas... And for not being able to help him..."
C!Ganondorf throws a Large Rupee-Candy at Lucas feet, then he turns around and begins to walk away.
Terry looks at Claus going away. He looks at his hand and sighs. He proceeds to walk away, not saying anything.
Meanwhile a certain blond haired barrier user looks at the scene from far away. He heard most of the conversation and proceeds to leave too.
Claus turns to her, and then gets hugged. He looks surprised. Then he looks a bit sad.
"...It's not your fault. I'm his brother. I should have seen this coming, and prevented it."
He then looks determined.
"But I'll find a way to set things right. Katniss. I promise you that I will get Lucas back to normal, no matter how!"
Ionia walks up to them, giving him a sad, but still somehow encouraging nod.
"I'm sorry. If I haddn't been so slow, it wouldn't even be an issue anymore."
Lucas looks at C!Ganondorf. Then at the candy. He picks it up with telekinesis.
"...I'll have Niiue scan this. If it's safe, I'll eat it. Can't be too safe. Kings tend to get taken down with poison."
Niiue flies in from above. Lucas glares.
"Where were you when I needed you!?"
"Fixing the window you blasted."
He turns around.
"Well... let's just get back to what we were doing, until we have a clue on Envy. Did you locate who we were looking for?"
"Yes. We've located Dr. Raichi."
"Well then... let's pay him a visit."
The two fly back to the mothership.

Daydre walks away. Now what should I do..?
"Well, I wish you the best of luck with that," Katniss says to Claus, releasing him from the hug and tousling his hair. "And if there's anything I can do to help, you just let me know, alright?"
She turns to Ionia. "Hey, you didn't know that it was too late to save him from the Metatron and at least you tried. Oh, I'm Katniss, by the way. Katniss Everdeen. I'm a friend of Lucas and Claus, and like them, I've been through a lot, to say the least."
@Psyco:Y'know, if Ionia had appeared back in v4 at the right time, chances are that she might've been able to help Alderoth before his Metatron problem got to the level that it's at today.

@Ichigo: Most likely. But since Ionia is a pascifist, I'm not sure Knowless would've appreciated it if I brought her in back then.
"I never ask for help.", he says, crossing his arms stubbornly.
"...But in this case, if I need it, I'll let you know.", he says, smiling a bit.
Ionia looks at Katniss.
"Nice to meet you, dear~ I am Ionia, the Magypsie who unlocked Lucas's psychic potential, and taught him PK Love.", she smiles.
"And here's some encouraging words. I may not have been able to cure him with my powers, but you're his friend and family. I'm sure you'll find a way to make him wake up from the ruse he is in."
