[ The Bebop II: ]
Ryoko: They're incoming!!
*With a whorl of dark energy, three figures appear*
*The three of them look around with mild interest*
Hooded Cat: *In a gruff voice* Well, well, well...Somethin' of a shindig we've ended up at, eh, Valkenhayn?
Valkenhayn: *Is the well-dressed older gentleman* Quite, Jubei. Quite. *He takes out and eyes a silver pocketwatch*
Armored Figure: ... *Looks over at Nadle* ...A Makuta. You stink
Jubei: Now c'mon, Hakumen! Don't go flippin' yer lid at a time like this!
Hakumen: *Draws a ridiculously long katana from his back* I will not allow a Makuta
to stand before me.
Kokonoe: *Lifts a device* Reactivate Detainment Protocol: HPS-3770000002157.
*From the device issues a broad shaft of light, paralyzing Hakumen*
*Next, several bands of crackling energy lock his arms against his torso and chain him to the floor*
Hakumen: Why do you continue to meddle in my affairs, Grimalkin?
Kokonoe: Because I don't want everbody b!tching out because you couldn't keep yourself from attacking our ally who just so happens to be a Makuta. Luckily, not all
of the seals from Rhadan wore off.
*She gestures to the curious gun-shaped device, smirking*
Kokonoe: I keep this baby on hand just in case we meet in person. You're rather predictable.
Hakumen: *Snarls, but falls silent* Hmph. *Standing tall despite his bindings, the red orbs all over his body swivel around towards the table Zev hid behind* ...So. The First Prince calls on us in his time of need. Typical.
Zev: *Pops up* C'mon! This is your first appearance in this RPG! Cut me some slack!
Jubei: Yeah, Hakumen. Ya can't blame him fer thinkin' of us in such a nasty situation as this.
Valkenhayn: *Returns the pocketwatch to his coat* Prince Raregroove. What do you require of us?
Zev: We~ll...I was hoping you could stay at the ready in case things seriously go wrong.
Jubei: *Chuckle* I see...Ya wanted a leg up on Uterio, so ya called on a few old-timers he won't have heard of, hm?
Zev: *Abruptly turns more serious and respectful* ...Yes, Sensei. We could really use your help.
Jubei: Sngrk. Don't go callin' me Sensei, Zev! Yer not my student anymore. Jus' call me Jubei.
Hakumen: ... *The red orbs all over his body "glare" at Ryoko* ...
Ryoko: *Snarl* You got a problem
with me, Tin Can?
Hakumen: Of course, you destructive harlot.
Ryoko: *Lobs a small energy blast at Hakumen's head*
*The explosion wraps around his helm, but quickly fades away*
Hakumen: Are you satisfied with the vain results of -
*He's interrupted by another explosion*
Ryoko: Heheh. This is fun.
*The blasts continue*

[ Icy Planet: ]
Wiseman: ...We do not.
*Closing his eyes, he sighs*
Wiseman: We never wanted to get involved in wars from the sky...
*Abruptly, a strong hand is laid over his shoulder*
Hishima: We shall handle this. Consider it a repaying of our debt.
Mushima: A battleship or two should be no problem, once they're within the atmosphere.
Takashima: Glah. *Inclines head in agreement*
*The three robed brothers leave*
Wiseman: ... *Chuckle* ...Perhaps there is hope.
*Folding his legs, he goes into a trance*
*All is silent for a while...*
