Current Form: Model A
Ashe blinked when the marine woman spoke to her. It seemed like she was pretty normal, bar her appearance. She smiled at hearing her attitude. She followed her when she passed by her. At the mention of "sausage fest", she glanced back. Yeah, she was right. She looked back to her and chuckled.
"I'm used to it. Makes it all the more fun when I beat them in something," she said, her grin getting more confident.
The woman explained the basic looks of who, or what, they were hunting. Well that made it easier for them. They'll probably have to follow the screaming.
The woman turned to Ashe and introduced herself as Undyne. An exotic name for an exotic person, of course. At least it was pronounceable. Then she asked Ashe if she was with them earlier.
"You mean at the balcony? Yeah. I saw you guys actually. I just went off before anyone noticed."
Then she remembered she hadn't introduced herself.
"Oh, the name's Ashe by the way. I'll show you guys Model A later."
What? You sure? Model A asked in his ever childish voice.
"Yeah, I'm sure. We're stuck here as far as I can tell, might as well get comfortable," she replied, forgetting that others couldn't exactly hear Model A talking.

Gon approached Miss Tairee after he got word from Josuke regarding the current situation.
"If I may be so kind to ask." Gon asked the woman. "Is there a place where we can lay low for the night?"
The assassin then asked the second question he had in mind.
"Is there also a place where I can inquire about meeting with an arms dealer?"
Morty blinked and winced as the blonde werewolf lectured him about his inability to keep up with the other members of the impromptu demon-slaying group. note it was pretty hard for Morty to argue; to his knowledge all he had on his side was a particularly unique electroencephalographic signature - not that he knew what that even meant. He flashed an awkward fake smile and wrung his hands together.
"Oh, aw jeez, if you say so, uh, I guess. You-you're probably better off, ya know, just with the guys who have super powers." Morty blushed and dropped his book on the ground, slouching back into the library. "How about, uh, I'll call you guys if the killer demon shows up back here?" he said, flashing an awkward smile at the departing group. The revolving door spun and Morty was gone.
Morty wandered aimlessly among the shelves for a few minutes. "Aw, I bet- I bet they're off fighting that demon right now" he muttered, leaning up against the wall and trying to blink away the sudden pricks of water in his eyes. "It'd be like a real, like a real big crazy adventure. I bet I... I coulda helped somehow." Morty's eyes slid off one title to the next as he tried to find something to take his mind off of his embarrassing incident outside.
It only took a few more seconds of aimless wandering before the teen heard some other voices from elsewhere in the library. It was the blonde girl from earlier, accompanied by the Asian guy he'd seen once or twice from afar. "Oh hey, guys," he said, slouching down against a nearby shelf and looking up at the gigantic library. "Man, that's- uh, that's a lot of books," he said, awkwardly trying to start a conversation. "Looks like, looks like you're going to... uh... explore this library, huh? Maybe, maybe we can find, like a magic spell book that'll take us home. Or, uh, a book that talks. A magical talking book that... that tells us how to get back to our home universes. Or, or, a book that could, uh, banish that demon everyone's so scared of. Wouldn't that be a, a thing?" He tapped his index fingers together and chuckled nervously.

"Such a pity," Plague Knight said as Morty went back inside. "He's rather scrawny and somewhat cowardly, but he was so eager to prove himself! I can tell, he definitely has great potential! Could have at least learned a few things from watching us.
"Now, let us not have the ones gifted with natural flight beat us to quarry before we have a chance to have at him," he said. "But first, a quick errand." With that, he ran back inside the library to Miss Tairee's, taking a sheet of paper and a pen. "OOO, one of those springloaded ones Tinker Knight was trying to mass produce!" he said marveling at the writing implement quickly before writing.
To whomever it may concern,
I would like to humbly request a laboratory similar to both the Potionarium and Explodatorium from my home universe.
Sincerely, Plague Knight
He puased. The dimunitive knight cautiously looked around, checking to see anyone watching. He then added some text:
Please sabotage any attempts by the one named Rick to create a lab of his own.
Plague Knight folded up the sheet of paper, put it into the suggestion box, and proceeded to chuckle evily as he went back outside.
"So, who should we be paired up with?" Plague Knight asked the group as a whole.

Viktor noticed one of the new arrivals being greeted by Undyne.
Hm, more numbers will certainly help our situation, Viktor thought to himself, he then heard what her name was.
Ashe? hm. she's certainly not the frost archer from Freljord...and what's this about a model A? Viktor then noticed that she was speaking...to nobody at all.
"Excuse me... who are you speaking to, is it this "Model A" you are talking to?" Viktor said to Ashe.
Josuke felt a bit bad at the kid's reaction. It was obvious he just wanted fit in somewhere...
For a moment, he turned towards the blonde woman, with an upset yet understanding frown. Really, this was probably the best outcome. After all, if he was busy watching over Morty, he probably wouldn't be able to concentrate on helping with actually taking the demon down. And, if a good deal of their party was adamant on not killing(He knew the one laser-sword guy was all-for it, but who else could kill a monster without a second thought?) that might cause some troubles if push came to shove. Still...
"Hey...I coulda kept an eye on him, y'kn-" He was about to say, but suddenly stopped.
"...Nevermind." He finally ended with a sigh. Maybe he could make it up to the kid later, somehow.
For now, they had a demon to find. He decided to hang back with the blonde woman. He didn't remember seeing her at the balconies, nor contributing to any conversation, so, he might as well find out her deal.
"So, what makes you special?" He asked Angua, a bit crudely.
Angua raised her eyebrows. "Huh. Well, you're certainly straight to the point, aren't you."
"To put it simply, I'm a werewolf. I can turn into a wolf, with all that implies, and I retain most of my intelligence while I'm in wolf form. And, in my human form, I have increased strength and a better sense of smell." She paused for a bit as her mind caught up with her mouth. "...Ordinarily I'd be more apprehensive about telling you these things, but something tells me that being a werewolf is pretty tame compared to the rest of you all."
The robot mage guy asked you why you were talkin' into air.
Ashe blinked then turned. As Model A said, the more humanoid robot of the two she saw ealier was near her, waiting for her answer.
"Yeah, that was Model A. I'm Megamerged with him right now so that's why I look like this, and you can't hear him."
Then she remembered the little bit that only Chosen Ones could hear Biometals.
"Although I'm not so sure if you can hear him when I'm not..."
Well at least I don't have to worry about them hearing me say anything nasty about them. Model A joked.
"Ha ha," Ashe said with an unsurprised expression. "Very funny Model A."
She heard the robed one's question and shrugged at it.
"Maybe those we can get along with?"
She was never a good planner and never really cared who she worked with. As long as they can get the job done and don't get in the way, she'll be fine with most company.
Then she heard Angua's explanation of herself.
"Yeah, I think so." She couldn't help from commenting.
"A werewolf? Honestly I would be far more amazed at the revelation if it were not for the child that can turn into multiple different creatures instead of just one," Plague Knight said. "However, it does give me an idea for a possible potion.....tell me miss, are you willing to part with some of your fur after the current situation os resolved?" he asked Angua. "All I need is a few hairs at the most."
Angua looked at Plague Knight askance. "...Depends. What kind of potion is this?"
"Transformative," Plague Knight answered truthfully.
It only took a few minutes, but Rick soon emerged from the other store with another armful of technological loot and computer parts, gratefully dumped into the long-suffering shopping cart. The scientist wiped his brow and looked around... only to realize that more than a few bystanders had taken an interest in his haul, and were currently pawing through it like a mob of curious racoons.
"St-s-step the hell *urp* away from my shit!" Rick kicked open the door, firing a barrage of warning shots into the air. Humans, aliens, and a whole host of bizarre creatures scampered away, allowing Rick to put his own body between himself and his gains as a sort of human shield. The first thug that unwisely tried to jump Rick got a fist in the mouth as recompense; the second one received a rather painful kick to the solar plexus.
"Anybody else wanna try and take my stuff?" growled Rick, scooping his laser pistol off of the floor and waving it around at the various scavengers that were still standing upright. "Didn't think so."
Ignoring Angua's explanation - turning into a wolf was relatively tame compared to some of the weirder abilities she'd seen today - Undyne looked over those assembled.
"Well we're all friends here, right?" Her eye flicked towards Plague Knight for a split second. "So I suppose the pairs doesn't matter too much, as long as you manage to stick by the other person. Although..." Undyne grinned at the armored human. "I am interested in seeing you in a fight, Ashe."
"Hrm. Well, alright then. But only a few."
Stinkfly buzzed across the city... he wasn't seeing anything of note. Aside from running into Rick robbing some places, he didn't see hide or hair of any demonic swordsman. However, as he was flying he did see a somewhat large group of individuals on the ground.
Hey, it was Josuke, Undyne, Plague Knight, and the blonde woman from the library!
Along with a couple of individuals he didn't recognize: he had never seen the girl in armor before, and he didn't recognize the two somewhat robotic-looking individuals. He started to fly down towards them, when he heard a sound he didn't want to hear....
....the Omnitrix powering down! He gasped in fright. He was close to 20 feet up by now! He made as much of an effort to fly down to the ground as quickly as he could, towards the group.
Right as he reached around 10 feet up, the area was bathed in red light, and Ben, now in his human form began to fall, above the others...
"AAAHHH!" he screamed.
''Current Form: Model A -> Model P
Ashe gave a more toothy grin. "I wouldn't mind showing."
Then she heard a scream.
Time seemed to slow down when she looked up and saw a kid falling down. There was only one form fast enough to get him at this rate. She ran to below the boy, picking a purple menacing icon on her vision.
Her armor changed into purple and her helmet concealed her face. She jumped and caught the boy, her tattered red scarf flowing behind her. Then she landed and placed the boy on the ground, since it was probably embarrassing for him to be saved by a girl. It was the same kid that changed into a dino. But she could care less.
In a voice that sounded like a young man, she asked, "Are you all right, kid?"
Ben closed his eyes before he hit the ground... but he didn't. It actually felt like he had been caught. He opened his eyes, and looked up at the armored individual who had rescued him.
He stood up, clutching his head with one of his hands. "Yeah, I'm fine," he muttered. "I gotta be more careful of how long I'm in the air." He then caught his breath, trying to calm himself down. "So yeah. I'm Ben Tennyson. You?" he asked.
Ben glanced over at the others and waved. "Any luck with finding the big armored guy?" he asked curiously. "I haven't found a thing. I did see that really weird old guy with pointy hair earlier, but mostly I've found a whole lot of nothing..." he groaned.
In the library
Miss Tairee watched the trio of kids go upstairs to search through the bookshelves; she was here to help if they asked, but until then... She turned to go back to her desk when Gon asked his question. "As I told those others, you can stay pretty much anywhere. I'd recommend finding somewhere with a bed and staking a claim there" Miss Tairee said, moving back behind the desk and sitting down at her machine again.
"As for an arms dealer, sir, you do realize that any arms dealer pulled into this city would be just as lost and confused as you, right? They might not even have their stock, and even if they did you'd be extremely lucky to even have the same currency that they use" Miss Tairee explained to him. "Now, I think my boss made a gun shop or two, but they've probably been picked clean by now" she went on, finishing as she readied her hands to start typing by adding, "now is there anything else I can help you with?"
Once Mary approached the two men and asked her question, they looked over, only slightly startled. "Well uh, it was near here a minute ago, but... Something's up with this city kid, because it ain't here now. Sorry" the man in the color shifting suit said.
"Are you here all alone kid?" the uniformed man asked, seeing that Mary was not accompanied by any parents.
"Ah craaap, man" the first man muttered, rubbing the back of his head, "and I thought I had it bad, but at least I ain't a kid..."
"Shouldn't we help her?" the second man asked the first.
"You think we can care for a little kid? I don't even know where we are going to get our next meal; let alone food for a kid too" the first responded, shaking his head, "besides, no offense pal but I'm not planning to start some heterosexual life partnership with some bloke from another universe I just met and adopt a kid together; even if you do seem like a real stand up guy."
"We can't just leave her alone, that's just not right!" the second man said firmly, then looked back to Mary, "come on little one, why don't you come with us until we find someone who could care for you?"
It was about that time that there was a ruckus down the street with Rick firing his laser gun and scaring off would-be looters from his shopping cart; among said looters was a couple of the goblins from earlier, who took off as fast as they could while carrying a sofa between them that held a couple of DVD players on it.
"What the heck is going on over there?" the first man asked.
It'd been a few minutes, and there was no obvious signs or apparent aftermath of the 'demon' that the group could find. They did see a man earlier who had some bruises and cuts, but it looked like that had more to do with himself breaking through a window than any encounters with giant demons.
As the group rounded another corner, there was finally at least something a bit more noteworthy. A building that was partially on fire down the street; ironically, it was a fire department. Rather than a big demon or other signs of carnage however, there was just a young, goth dressed teen in front of it, watching the blaze with a grin on his face and a lit cigarette in his hand. Any of the group with good enough hearing to catch it from down the street would hear him comment, "man I've always wanted to do this."
And it was as the fire was distracting the group that they finally heard a loud noise much like a jet engine briefly firing from the other side of a small apartment building next to them, followed by the loud crashing of glass coming from an upper floor. There was immediately a very surprised and frightened scream from the building, followed by what sounded like a wall being busted through by a wrecking ball, and a very loud, furious, and deep yell.
"VILE SCUM! YOU WILL NOT ESCAPE MY JUDGEMENT!"
Through the entrance the group could see a set of stairs, which a small, orange skinned lizard person in a brown tunic was scampering down as fast as he could. Though he had a lizard face, it was still obvious to anyone that he was very scared and very desperate; as he saw the group outside, he called out while booking it towards the door. "Help! Please!"
The ceiling inside the room exploded downwards before the kobold could reach the door, and with a thunderous boom of an impact, a very large figure landed next to the kobold, making him stagger as the floor cracked and dented under his feet. With one swift motion, the large figure swung its sword sideways with a sound much like a large chainsaw; two halves of a kobold were flung into the wall out of view.
The figure stood up, and though splattered red, purple, and blue with blood, it was still obvious that the armor was supposed to be a deep, ultramarine blue.◊ Quickly, his gaze spotted Undyne through the doorway. "More filthy xenos!? Emperor, guide my blade true!" With that battle cry, and another roar of his assault pack, the space marine, all ten plus feet of him, came rocketing out of the building on a direct course towards Undyne, his chainsword raised to strike and revving loudly as the deadly links spun to life.
Ultramarines Assault Marine

As Travis saw the carnage a fleeting thought crossed his mind. Heavy duty, mother-fucker, chain sword and with a thirst for blood. This was his wheelhouse. Reflexes kick in, blades are considered... Raw power had nothing on technique. Tsubaki Mk II is drawn. A stance is taken. Breathing accelerates, adrenaline and other chemicals flows as his heart pumps. Blood rushes and boils. All in preparation for the fight, for battle.
In short, as it was in the old days, its kill or be killed.
Travis had lagged behind so he was at the back of the group when the marine dived towards them. In a swift motion the rod extends and the blade emitters and receivers unfurl. The blades of light appear as his body coils and they begin to rotate when he's in midair, like a lounging tiger. Using the Dark-Step to boost his speed and jump length he aims to position himself ahead of everybody and defend using the whirling blades of his sword.

Current Form: Model P -> Model F
Ashe sighed in relief and straightened her posture. Even with her eyes pure red, you could tell she was glad and smiling.
"Name's Ashe. Nice to meet ya, Ben."
She quickly glanced at the others before looking back at Ben.
"I think we barely did anything while you were gone."
While the others did whatever they were doing, she thought about changing back into Model A but decided against it. Model P's Radar Scope would certainly be helpful right now. Why didn't she thought of this earlier? Hopefully it can detect other stuff besides Reploids and Mechanilouds.
"How about we go now? We're not getting anything done at this rate." She looked into the distance, her cheery attitude replaced with worry. "And wouldn't something pretty big make a lot of noise?"
She went off, keeping an eye on her radar. She didn't dash off so the others or anyone following her could easily catch up.
After some time...
Apparently, most of the group had gathered at the spot they were in now when the sound of that explosion echoed through the city. There was a man standing in front of some sort of station, then a loud crash rumbled. Ashe turned her head to the apartment opposite of the station, and saw a lizard man cry for help.
On her radar, she saw something move towards tje lizard at a rapid pace.
Ashe jerked when a large marineblue armored man shouted then promptly cleaved the lizard in two clean. Then he noticed Undyne near her.
"More filthy xenos!? Emperor, guide my blade true!"
Then he charged straight at Undyne.
Ashe focused her energy (not Weapon Energy) through her legs, then released it in a sudden burst of speed. While on her screen, she picked an icon with an orange/white helmet with yellow horns.
A flash again. This time, her face can be seen, her helmet becoming the one on the orb icon. Her vest and armor are orange, with the rest of it white, and she was holding two orange hand cannons in her hands.
She stopped right in front of the man and put up her Knuckle Busters in defense, blocking the blow.
"Guys!" she shouted in a androgynous voice this time. She grunted, strained from the impact. "I think we found who we're looking for!"

Legion had spotted its quarry, as its quarry utilized a sword to slice another sapient individual in half. Its quarry was no demon, but given its ferocity and pure size it was clear to see why it had been compared as such.
"Alert! Target spotted!" The geth pointed towards the Ultramarine. "Attempting to find extended-range vantage point!"
The geth pulled a long rifle off of its back as it headed away from the fight, and towards a nearby apartment complex.
"Huh..." Josuke lightly remarked at Angua's reveal of lycanthropy. "So...We got ghosts, werewolves..."
...All we need now is a vampire! Then we got the big 3!" He smirked, jokingly.
His smile stopped, however, the moment they could catch an ear of the bastard's carnage.
Josuke shifted his vision towards the building of screams without a second though, just in time to see the lizard-man get sliced away by the giant bastard in blue power armor.
...It was clear the guy wasn't so much a demon as he was a colossal asshole, which was possibly even worse.
As the figure rocketed away from the doorway, Josuke made his move, briefly abandoning the battle for a moment as he dashed towards the opening the Ultramarine just left from.
If there was even a chance the kobold, or anyone else in the building was even remotely alive, he had to patch them up, he just had to.
Plague looked upon their quarry, seeing the murderer was some giant brute in armor. What interested him the most when the man's sword.
"An internal combustion engine in his sword! I KNEW IT!!" he said almost triumphantly. He would immediately joined in the battle....but he instead decided to step away to sepak with the goth kid who burned down the fire department.
"Excuse me, but was is the purpose of the building you just set ablaze....?" the knight asked, genuinely curious and in no way planning on doing anything about it.
Rex heard what sounded like an explosion in the distance. He turned his head to see what it was. He saw a building on fire and an someone in giant blue armor.
He pointed at it "Look like it's our signal" he said to the half-ghost.
Rex then dropped himself against the building the blue demon was in with his Smack Hands in front of his body◊.

Danny flew in after Rex and the blue giant. The first thing that caught his attention was the giant chainsawlike sword.
"Yikes. This guy really knows how to slice them."
Danny charged up a ball of green energy in his hand, and fires a hand beam at the giant's hand holding the weapon, in attempt to disarm him.
