Scarlet city stood silhouetted by the rising sun, it's tall buildings like dark monoliths, silently imposing themselves across the horizon. The distant orange sun illuminated a patchwork of clouds, giving the sky a deep coral candecance, only interrupted by the streaking lines of planes far above. Kira and Sam strolled through a small park, aimlessly meandering around the empty paths that criss-crossed the frosty grass. The small public park was quiet, but not entirely detached from the hum of disant traffic as the city slowly made its way to work, school or people’s other daily tasks. A distant rumble hinted at the comings and goings of trains, the only louder sounds being the occasional car that made its way down a nearby suburban street. Most of the tantalisingly reclusive park was still in shadow, the slowly rising sun having not reached more than the rusty tops of a smattering of playground structures and public recreational exercise contraptions installed a few years ago.
Eventually the siblings came to a slight rise in the path, on top of which a bench stood off to the right, facing towards the upcoming dawn sun. The small knoll was just high enough to give the feeling of having an uninterrupted view of the distant buildings, some of them now slowing starting to also be illuminated by the bright interior lights of offices or the glow of white collar workers booting up their computers while they groggily sipped a coffee from their favourite big brand name. Sam would normally be one of them if he hadn’t insisted on staying home to mind her again. This time she welcomed his company.
The two sat down on the bench, neither particularly caring about the morning dew that coated its top. Kira ran her fingers over the coarse surface of the seat, it’s neglected surface was coarse and the varnish was inevitably flaking off. Kira huddled closer to her brother against the chill, her burns only slightly tingling as she moved thanks to the prescribed pain killers. Sam tenderly placed his arm around her shoulder, just as a lump settled in Kira’s throat and the beginnings of tears formed in her light blue eyes, which now reflected an enchanting pallet of sunrise colours. As they sat in silence, reminiscing on the memories of their parents on this very bench, a single tear spilled from her eye and made its way down Kira’s right cheek. Unbidden, Kira’s thoughts sank into the familiar depths of grief, filling her with the dull ache of regret and sorrow. Her mother and father had always had such high hopes for Kira, despite her near compulsive habits of conducting herself poorly in school and, more often than not, at home. It seemed so cruel and cliched to Kira, that only now after their presence was ripped from her life, did she truly appreciate them the way she ought to have since the second she first opened her eyes. As though reading her guilt stricken mind, Sam softly spoke up, wrenching her attention away from dejection and heartbreak.
“They would be proud-,” he said, his voice choking for a split second before wrestled back control within a moment. “They would be happy now that you’re going after something.” He looked at her with glowing pride in his eyes. “Well, in between multiple mental breakdowns because of what you’re going after...” He said, a slight droll grin appearing on his lips. Kira couldn’t help but smile and cringe at his, as usual, terribly timed humour.
“You’re so stupid.” She said, matter of factly, the choking feeling in her throat dissipating as he chucked and nodded his agreement. Kira’s tears dried and for a time she enjoyed the view, the brisk morning air, and the presence of her older brother.
They walked on after a while, following the seemingly ancient family tradition of first picnicking on the bench, before walking to the playground where Sam and their father would humour Kira’s insatiable appetite for playing games when she was much younger, both doing their best to match her enthusiasm.
Now as they walked past the haphazardly placed swings, slides, see-saws and climbers, an idea struck Kira. She broke off the path and lightly jogged towards the monkey bars, her loose sweatpants and soft hoodie not bothering her burns, the worst of which were also bandaged. Sam followed, a quizzical look playing over his face. Kira stopped under the bars, looked up and jumped up to grab onto one. She firmed her grip on the wet metal, inhaled until her rib twinged despite the pills, and pulled herself up towards it. She did not get very far. Her arms barely bent and face reddening with exertion, she let go and landed back on the ground, jarring her body and grimacing in pain.
“That could have gone better.” She said dryly as Sam unhelpfully began snickering despite himself.
“Yeah well I guess that’s what you get when you passionately despise exercise since you were old enough to realise what it is.” He pointed out, grinning as Kira grumpily strode passed him towards the path. “We’re going to have to work on, well, a lot.” He said, before turning and following his little sister.
“I need a coffee!” Kira announced, suddenly remembering how tired she was and looking forward to spending another day on the couch under a heap of blankets.

After re-retrieving his small personal effects from the prisons out take and processing area, He finalizes the discharge and is released where he calls a cab to take him back to his home on the other side of town. Once he is home He gets a shower and cleans off real good before going down to his Basement that he has set up as a make shift lab and gets on his computer and looks at the results of an analysis of a sample of blood from once of his previous targets. looking at the DNA and trying to identify what genes are linked with super ability's and what gene's are to what power. Hoping to unlock the secrets and hopefully to become rich by selling 'what will your new born have when they grow older' kits. " He then turns his attention to the inactive alpha suit that he took from his old lab as a trophy from them firing him. As this suit was the very first suit designed by Maddox at his old job, it is more primitive with less scanners smaller memory core that can only handle a basic interface with only basic voice commands, and a micro fission reactor instead of the safer power cells in his other designs. he would begin a new blueprint by taking the old designs of the Alpha suit and begin by making modifications by keeping the reactor but upgrading the senor suite and computer storage he hopes to have this suit operational in a week or two though with the reactor He would be more detectable by sensors.

Casey gets a notification that the search warrant was approved and he immediately finishes what he is doing. A short phone call later and there will be an FBI SWAT team waiting at the Maddox residence for him. He informs Mr. Martins that the warrant has been approved and he is moving immediately to take care of it. Casey runs outside to his jet-bike as it starts up. In a couple seconds Casey is riding off towards the Maddox residence.

FBI agents roll up to Maddox's house in armored cars. A second later Casey rides in on his jet-bike and lands as the FBI agents exit their vehicles in full tactical gear. Casey walks up to the door and pounds on it before yelling in to Maddox, "Federal Bureau of Investigation and Federal Super Agency, open the door immediately. We have warrants to gather evidence."

Hearing the door, He puts his designs in the cabinet near the alpha suit and powers down the nearby computer terminal. and goes up to the door and opens it. "Hello there, sorry for the delay. How can I help you special agents?" He would gesture for them to enter. " Can I interest any of you in a drink or other refreshment?"

"No. Step aside so we can gather evidence. We will be searching your computer for information. We have a warrant to search the whole residence as well as all of your domains." Casey says bluntly walking past Maddox. The full SWAT team walks in and begins gathering evidence. Casey walks to the entrance of the basement and walks down the stairs scanning the room with his sensors. He spots Maddox's computer and says, "start it up and unlock it. I have to go through the whole hard drive and find evidence." Casey approaches the computer wait's for Maddox's response. Casey looks at the alpha suit and says, I can see you have more than one nano-suit.

Maddox unlocks the computer and gives Casey full access. "That is Alpha. It is the original prototype that I designed when I still worked at the Institute before my family was killed. Its outdated and really hasn't had fuel in it for 2 years now, I don't even know if the micro reactor will even fire up."
"Jack, Give Agent Casey full access to restricted information and also the vault."
Dominic would say to the computer. "yes Dominic." the AI would respond. Casey recognizing its the same AI that Dominic uses in his suit. Dominic would turn back to Casey, "if you need anything else the AI should be able to handle it, if not I will be in the kitchen making some food."
Dominic would leave the agents and the swat team in the lab and would proceed to throw a frozen pizza in the oven and set a timer to let him know when the pizza is ready, and then he would sit on his sofa and try to relax.

Casey sifts through all the data on the computer. He copies almost all of it to go through it later. He checked the get rich quick scheme chuckled a bit and laughed because he thought it wouldn't take off. After a couple of hours combing through the house and searching every inch of the house Casey and the SWAT team finally leave the house. Casey walks off to his jet-bike and starts it up. He takes a moment to relay the warrant has been served to its conclusion. In the next couple days he analyzes the data he found. The trial is in a few weeks and Casey will be busy preparing for his testimony against Mr.Maddox.

Dominic sits in his living room eating his pizza with the television Playing the local news channel while going over Alpha's blueprints and taking notes on a pda on improvements that can be made to its sensors and main processing unit. 30 minutes later he finished his pizza, and back in his basement lab, where he begins taking the Alpha suit apart and cleaning all the old parts and taking inventory. Later on in the day he has his shopping list for some miscellaneous electronic bits and different size connectors. and he would go off in his car to the local electronic supplier and look for all his parts, while also putting in a order for a custom circuit board for his new Processor unit. before heading home and getting back to work on his other project with the DNA of his powered targets.

"In other news, the vigilante Dominic Maddox has been found not guilty of fifteen felony murder charges pinned on him by the FBI and FSA. The defense argued that a handful of the cases had evidence of the defendant being framed and the other allegations fell through. The federal prosecutor overseeing the case lost their chief testimony in the case of Agent Thorne being reassigned across country just prior to the trial and agent Norton being unable to testify due to an infection caused by injuries sustained in operations in and around Scarlet City. We will be wishing the federal super agent and medal of honor recipient a swift and speedy recovery. The hospital television is switched off John Martins who had just entered the room where Casey was in bed.

"You gotta be kidding me. That case was open and shut. I can't believe that we won't even get a chance to appeal. I couldn't do anything to sway the result. Has my doctor come up from Kentucky with the replacement arm? Casey asks looking at the amputated stump that put him out of action. He had collapsed on the steps of federal building just a day prior to the start of the trial. "Doctor Weissmann is on his way and he said he is happy to lend a hand to you. John says chuckling despite Casey's frown directed at him. He continued Kira's paperwork has all been accepted and she will be inducted into the cadet next week. I will start her with some weekend classes until school is out for summer. Casey acknowledges what John said before falling silent for a while. Before long nurse comes in to administer more medication to Casey before he nods of to sleep.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Casey struts out of the hospital to a crowd of reporters who awaited to see him as he had finally made his recovery just a week prior to summer. His replacement hand had been properly been attached and his cybernetics had been installed. He confidently answered the questions of the reporters and explained the nature of his injuries. He avoided any questions about the Maddox case and pushed through the crowd of reporters to get to where Mr.Martins waited in an agency car for him. Before long they would be at the rail yard where the black bullet awaited having been primed for his arrival by Mongrel so that he could fly it back to Kentucky to maintenance and service it back at his shop. Before long they would be on board and the Black Bullet would be puffing along the rails before taking off. There would be a crowd of rail fans to see the Black Bullet in all its glory flying home.

Kira stepped out of the shower and peered over her shoulder, eying herself in the bathroom mirror. She ran a hand over her left shoulder onto a few discoloured lines that were left over from her run-in with Garrison. Kira focused on her hand and she sighed. After a further medical exam it was discovered that Kira’s powers had developed to be able to accelerate the healing process. It wasn’t uncommon for people with abilities to not fully manifest their powers until adulthood, so it wasn’t unusual that it had only surfaced under extreme conditions. She had been badly burned by the violent explosions that she repeatedly generated, and while most of the damage had already healed, including her broken rib, her hands had not. The normal burn marks had faded away over the course of a week, revealing a strange patchwork of white lines that were slightly raised from her skin. The irregular hash pattern of scarring covered both her hands, and faded as they ran on to her wrists. The scars reminded her of the glowing energy that emanated from her when she engaged her ability, she just hoped she wouldn’t be left with more every time. Kira frowned, but after inspecting the rest of her short frame, she was glad to see the other areas with scarring had almost completely faded away, leaving only the faintest trace of the same white lines, most of which nobody would notice - she hoped.
Her scarred hands had drawn unwanted attention from her classmates as soon as she returned to school, some of which had been benign and some of which had been more maliciously motivated. Kira sighed, trying not to think about the long day of school that lay ahead, instead focusing on the end of term that was so tantalisingly close, and wrapped a towel around herself before heading to her bedroom.
Before her shower, Kira had just returned from a morning jog with Sam. Ever since her recovery he had insisted on starting a light fitness routine, which meant building up to three runs a week as well as some basic calisthenics workouts. Sam had been a powerlifter all through highschool, as well as being a fairly active amateur boxer up until their parents’ passed away, when he had to devote most of his time to work in order to provide for Kira.
She had progressed nicely from hardly being able to run half a mile, to being able to run three miles without stopping, and he was impressed with her developing muscle endurance. They were both enjoying the exercise, Kira more so than she wanted to admit, after years of basically refusing to exercise. As for Sam, he used it as an excuse to get his cardio back up to scratch.
“Breakfast’s on the table.” Sam called from the kitchen as Kira emerged from her room wearing her school uniform. School was almost over for the year, and she couldn’t be happier about it. “Oh and by the way, the paperwork all went through for the Cadet Program, I don’t have a date but you should be starting soon.” He said with a warm smile, picking up his bag and heading out the door.
“Have a good day!” Kira called after him, sitting down and demolishing the porridge he just prepared before leaving. She had always had a healthy appetite, but lately she was ravenous.
A short time later Kira walked towards school, enjoying the warm, rising sun on her face as she blissfully listened to music through her earphones.
