...I'm not sure about Praepositus, but Aeturnus is still in Bralgu, being allowed a few questions to ask by Nabonidus.
Does that help at all...?
[ Tournament: ]
Misaki: *Moves forward as well* Wu-tah!
*She slaps her palm with great force onto Baterra's sword hand, aiming to disarm him*
Misaki: *Drives the heel of her left palm towards his chin*
[ Space Station Dock: ]
*The foremen are preparing to open the box*
Namah: *Standing next to Dorothy, looks over at the android girl* You sure you don't want to stop them?
Dorothy: *Nods very slightly* Yes. I feel that, whatever is in the container, it is meant to be opened with me near.
*Abruptly, without the foremen doing anything, the front of the titanic box starts to rise up*
*From inside, a low roar emanates - Followed by a rattling of chains and several thumps*
Namah: ...Go back into the bracelet, Roll.
Roll: *Grunts, doing so with a flicker of Cloud Flames*
Namah: *Dashes around to the front of the giant box, as the foremen scatter*
Dorothy: *Runs after her, still expressionless*
Ed: ... *Is watching from far away* ...Dolly-Kitty, what's going on? *Looks up to Pitou, standing beside her*
Pitou: It would seem that this station is home to a relic. *Smiles at another roar* A dangerous relic.
*From inside of the box can be seen some kind of massive, robotic torso, with the lower body apparently severed and the curiously-shaped head adorned with a line of three glowing eyes across it, two smaller eyes above that, and some kind of flashing lights near the mouth-area. Its long arms possess cylindrical forearms with well-armored hands and what look like pistons on the backs of the elbows, and chains are hooked to rings around the neck and wrists*
???: *Roars loudly, dragging itself towards the newly-opened front of its box*
Namah: Keep BACK!! *Lashes out with two Ether Tendrils from each hand, trying to hit the robot*
*Her attack impacts, but fails to do any damage to the mech's torso*
???: *Roars again, reaching its hand towards the implike girl attacking it*
Namah: *Eyes widen* What!? *Tries to leap away, but hesitates a moment to long - The hand grabs her*
???: *Lifts Namah up into the air, rumbling quietly as it gazes at her*
Namah: *Struggles wildly, eyes wide and fearful* No, no...! Stay away!! *However, she cannot get anywhere close to escape*
???: *Prepares to do something with Namah in its grasp, before turning to look at the front of its box again*
Dorothy: ... *Headband is glimmering bright* ...Put her down, Hannibal.
Hannibal: *Gives a low rumble, loosening its grip on Namah slightly* ... *Lowers itself to look at Dorothy*
Namah: *Tries to escape, but there is still not enough room to slip free*
Dorothy: *Circuits still glow across headband's surface* This is not a world for you. I know someone who can find you a home...But if you go through with hurting my friend, I cannot and will not help you reach asylum.
*Several guards from across the Station have moved in, but their captain has stopped them from firing*
Hannibal: *A small, sideways-rectangular panel on forehead has started flickering* ...
Dorothy: You do not have to do this. No matter who created you, and for what...I can see that you have free will. Please, choose not to doom yourself.
Hannibal: ... *Grunts, setting Namah down gently at Dorothy's feet* ...
Namah: *Scrabbles to feet, arms wrapped around self* ... *Gulps, starting to calm*
Hannibal: *Retreats back into box, as the lid starts to lower again*
*From the side, Pitou and Ed walk over to Dorothy and Namah; meanwhile, the box's cover has fully lowered*
Pitou: *Catsmile* Wow, Dorothy~! That was quite interesting! How did you calm that creature?
Dorothy: ...I do not know. It just seemed...In need. It was confused, and scared, and didn't know where it was...
Ed: *Tugs on Pitou's jacket* Dolly-Kitty. Ed thinks they want you. *Points*
Pitou: *Turns* ...Ah. *Shows no distress at the sight before him*
*All of the Space Station guards besides the Guard Captain have their guns trained on the group - Especially Dorothy*
*The Guard Captain approaches Pitou calmly, a hand on his pistol*
Guard Captain: My name is Guard Captain Delta-47. I'm sorry for this kind of treatment, but procedure is procedure.
Pitou: Not a problem, not a problem. Giant robots are worrying things.
Delta-47: That android girl - *Inclines head towards Dorothy* - Has our thanks...But we'll need to ask some questions.
Pitou: I brought her here - Though I didn't originally know she'd be an android... - So I take responsibility.
Namah: I've spent the most time with her, so far. I can attest to her character.
Ed: Emotions read, healthy head~! Ed can read her emotions and attentions - You can do tests if you want~!
Delta-47: ...This cooperation is much appreciated. We usually attract a rowdy bunch. I'll talk to you all one at a time.
*Gesturing towards some kind of office, he leads the four over*
*First to be interviewed is Pitou*
Delta-47: ...What were your intentions in bringing the android here, Nefelpitou?
Pitou: Well~ I honestly didn't know what she'd be. A few of my workers found a capsule on an abandoned planet...I knew there'd be something interesting inside, but I didn't anticipate this.
Delta-47: Should the need arise, will you take full responsibility for this android and her actions?
Pitou: Of course. Though, she's quite well-behaved for being sealed up so long.
*The questions go on*
