After Charles gets dropped off in his new home at the containment facility, he begins to regain his awareness, and starts looking around the room. He immediately notices that it's mostly see through other than the door and the framing which is some kind of reinforced plastic compound that cannot conduct anyform of electricity. He does attempt to focus but can’t feel anything other than his own nervous system electricity wise. He does notice many other cells in the larger room but only his and two other cells actually have people in them. He gets up from the standard padded bed that all the cells have and looks around trying to get a better sense for the other prisoners in his block.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After observing the transfer of the prisoner to the transport Dominic follows the transport truck back to the containment facility and enters the Agent area barracks area finding a corner before disengaging from his suit. He would step out of his suit after it opens and powers down to standby power mode. Dominic would put an earpiece in to allow communication with Jack, and to allow other comms from his suit to be routed to him. He would check in and would ask to see the file on the electric they just brought in. Karina being the arresting agent having signed responsibility over to Deputy Dominic. After receiving the file Dominic heads up to observation of the cell block where Charles is being held and would begin to read over the file as he looks down at the cell where he is being held. Dominic Looks at the photo of his suspected target from what the techs pulled from his device and froze as he recognizes the man in the photo. The picture is his Brother, who works at a lab that rivaled the institute that Dominic used to work for.

"Fifteen, his birthday is coming up in a couple weeks." Sabina says pausing for second before opening the door to her home. Her parents were away at their respective jobs her father being a nuclear scientist working at the Scarlet City Institute and her mother working as a biology professor at Scarlet City college. Sabina called a greeting out to her brother getting a halfhearted response over the sound of the latest shooter game. Sabine walked up to her bedroom after taking her shoes off. Inside there were few references to he more nerdy side but they were there. Most of her decor showed boy bands and whatever was all the rage at school.

“What’s going on?” Billy Reynolds shouted over the claxon and alert intercom announcements as he emerged from a small side corridor and into one of the main artery hallways of the containment facility. A team of other facility guards were passing the intersection as he arrived so he joined them as they jogged towards ECU-2.
“No idea,” one of them barked, his voice slightly muffled behind the riot duty helmet worn by the whole six man group. On top of their regular FSA uniform, they had all donned riot gear as soon as the alarms started blaring, and each guard cradled a rifle. “We lost contact with ECU Three and Four immediately, now Two. he said. Billy didn’t recognise the hoarse voice, and due to the flickering red emergency lights he couldn’t see past the visor. Billy briefly let his mind wander as he fell in with the team. ECU units were specifically designed to contain powered criminals that could draw on any kind of powersource, and as such were completely cut off from the rest of the facilities systems. Conductive materials weren’t even allowed in those units. He couldn’t imagine how a prisoner could escape from one, let alone two separate incidents occurring in such quick succession. Maybe it was just a system failure?
“Jesus…” Someone blurted out as they turned a corner, interrupting Billy’s thoughts and dispelling all possibility of a system failure. He searched around to see what had drawn the remark and it didn’t take long for him to notice the body up ahead.
“What the hell happened here?” A female guard asked with a trembling voice. A guard lay slumped against the wall, a streak of blood painted on the white plaster. A football sized crater lay where his rib cage should have been.
There were others further down the corridors - black heaps and splashes of red on the otherwise sterile tones of the facility's floors and walls. One of the other’s got sick, adding to the gore and bile of death that already covered the floor. Billy almost vomited as well, but when the squad’s leader started moving again, so did he.
They trudged down the corridor, unable to look away from the deformed corpses as they were bathed in the red glow of the emergency lights that sporadically lined the corridor. Gunfire echoed towards them, almost deafening as it echoed in the enclosed corridor. It started with a single shot, but quickly resumed and crescendoed in a torrent of fire before stopping suddenly.
They all rounded the last corner before ECU-2, but stopped as soon as the carnage was revealed by the dim cast of crimson light. Easily twenty bodies, missing arms, legs, heads, were slumped against the walls, each other, or simply lay on the floor in their own blood. A man stood amongst the dead, next to him lay a large metal briefcase. He wasn’t unusually tall, but was incredibly broad shouldered. He wore black military boots, now slick with blood, and a dark green jumpsuit the top half of which hung at his waist revealing his upper body. His skin was almost a charred grey, coarse and paper thin, revealing striated muscles and grotesque vascularity in the absence of body fat. His biceps looked like they were about to rip open, while his striated chest muscles rippled in spasm even as he stood still. Separated deltoid muscles gave way to mountainous traps. His torso was spotted by patches of severe scarring as well as dark circles that were more numerous on his shoulders, traps and cobbled back. A rugged buzzcut kept a few uneven patches of hair at the back of his head as stubble, while there were hardly any traces of eyebrows or eyelashes on his scarred face. His irises were dark, surrounded by bloodshot yellow. The rest of his face was sunken and skeletal, featuring prominent cheekbones and protruding eye sockets. His chapped and split slips were crossed by dark scars or tattoos that were reminiscent of a skull's teeth.
His eyes flickered to the team as they arrived. He turned to face them stiffly, as though his monstrous traps, neck and head could not move independently. He held the guards in his dark gaze for a moment, an irritated expression forming on his fiendish face, before starting to walk towards them with slow, heavy steps.
Billy was frozen for what seemed like minutes as he took in the full extent of the carnage that lay before him. The man slowly walked towards them. Behind him lay the large double doors to ECU-2, unopened thus far.
“Take him out!” Someone screamed, and they were jolted out of the horrific trance that gripped them. They all raised their rifles and began firing at the approaching man, Billy included. The torrent of gunfire that resounded through the narrow corridor was deafening, like a thunderstorm contained in a single room. After a few seconds it began to die down. But, even as each weapon unloaded it's magazine the man continued - unperturbed.
Billy was sprayed with blood as the man reached the first of them and with a single swing sent a guard to the ground without his jaw. They each fell in quick succession, some disemboweled by stabbing strikes of his fists, others simply hurled into walls with sickening crunches. Billy didn’t even have time to think of his kids before he was slammed into the ground with enough force to make his lifeless corpse bounce.


Garrison walked away from the pile of bodies at the end of the corridor, returning to where he had left the large metal briefcase he had entered with. Picking it up, he stepped over the various dead people who had gotten in way. He had tried two other ECU units before this one, and neither of them had what he was looking for. Standing in front of the large double doors that led to the unit, he punched a fist through the steel, using only a fraction of the kinetic energy he had absorbed thanks to the guards and their useless guns. He wasn’t exactly invulnerable, but as long as he absorbed incrementally larger amounts of force he could withstand insane amounts of damage without so much as flinching. Since his powers became apparent, he had been practically unstoppable - well, almost.
“F*cking b*tch.” He muttered as he tore a hole in the doors with a burned and scarred arm, the steel crumpling like paper. He stepped through the ruined doors, and then made his way through the small airlock-like entryway that served to disconnect the containment unit from the rest of the facility. The interior of the containment unit was made of non conductive materials, as such the cells had translucent walls, bordered by some kind of plastic compound frames. A few of the cells had occupants, who stared at Garrison with a mixture of curiosity and fear. He was used to seeing that reaction, so ignored them, making his way to one particular cell. The prisoner had been there less than a day, and he was the reason Garrison had been instructed to break into the state's top super containment facility. He stared at the occupant before placing his briefcase on the floor. Opening the metal container he withdrew a syringe and a vial. He held both in one scarred, shaking hand before ripping open the cell's door with the other.
“Do what I tell you and you can leave.” Garrison growled. His voice sounded like an anvil being dragged across gravel. “Now hold out your arm.” He added, and fixed Charles with a look that made it clear he wouldn’t think twice about smashing his head against the cell wall if he resisted.

Kira timidly crossed the threshold of Sabina’s home, following suit and slipping her converse off. She quickly took in the spacious entryway before climbing the stairs behind Sabina. She could hear Sabina’s younger brother playing and idly wondered if it was a game she also had. Despite not favouring first-person-shooters, Kira still enjoyed the thrill found in the genre from time to time - and was pretty good at them if she did say so herself.
“So, your parents are like, scientists or something, right?” Kira asked after clearing her throat. She dredged up the memory of hearing about them in class sometime during a stupid exercise some freshly qualified teacher came up with to try to “get to know” her new students. The exercise probably only stuck out in her recollection because the thought of having to talk about her own parents in front of the class caused her to make a rapid escape to the bathroom. Kira shyly stood just inside the door to Sabina’s bedroom, her hands fidgeting at her sides as she glanced around at the decorations and details of the room, appreciating some of the nerdier items referencing pop culture as well as music choice.

Casey mounted his jet-bike and rode off to the bad side of town. Answering calls and assisting the local cops Casey found himself dealing with things that seemed trivial to him. There weren't bigger fish to fry just petty crime today a seeming lull in sudden spring of chaos and crime from the early spring. What had required resources from across the state seemed to finally be dying down as things were brought under control. There was no love for Casey as most people around him ignored him when he passed by. The crime in the area had made life worse the folks who found themselves impoverished living in this area of the city. Casey helped catch a running purse thief for a pair of police officers tackling the man and hand cuffing him. Casey's jet bike spun round and landed nearby as Casey read the thief his rights. The cops caught up and opened the back of an old crown victoria watching Casey take the criminal with almost no struggle. Putting the criminal in the back Casey exchanged a little bit of **** talk before the tones dropped and they all went silent. Without hesitating Casey handed them the purse and ran to his jet-bike leaping on it as took off towards him.

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

Karina drove her father in the agency car to Super Containment facility enjoying her time sparse time to be with one of her only living family members. Her father talked with her with joy being glad that he had gotten her back after the divorce and when she went bad. He couldn't be more proud of her and how she had fully realized her potential. As they were halfway there they heard the tones go off over the radio. Karina hit the lights and sirens while she stepped on the gas. Dr.Mieszaniec's mind raced to his patient hoping that the power to his dormitory wouldn't be cut.

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

"You could say that. You can come in." Sabina says jumping on her bed. Sabina sat there gazing at Kira with a grin. She then asked, "how did you meet Casey? My parents always had access to the FSA so when they learned I had powers they let me get evaluated." Sabina didn't know everything her parents did but she was kinda sad that they didn't want her to become a super agent like she did.

As the alarm starts to go off, Dominic drops the inmate folder and his files and runs back to his suit. As he is making his way back to where his suit is stored, he taps on his earpiece, “Jack, initiate power up sequence.” “Yes sir. Powering up all main systems and bringing defensive systems online, awaiting pilot.”
After making it back to the room, the suit opens up from the back and allows Dominic to get in. He rushes back over to ECU 2 that was just lost scanning the bodies of the FSA guards that were lost. Dominic gets to the ECU to see the door smashed in. He turns on his helmet lights and looks to see the mangled garrison. “Oh, common can’t you stay dead?” Dominic says as he gets to a better fighting position.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Charles, seeing the look on Garrison’s face, he holds out his arm, “what is this?” he asks Garrison, before hearing Dominic enter the room. AS Dominic moves into the room Charles begins feeling the massive energy source as he mentally reaches out and finds the small Thorium Reactor located in the back of the armor’s torso.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dominic Now at a better position takes out his high power revolver and with the suits aiming assistance begins firing at Garrison.

“I’m going to break you out, but first - I need your blood.[/colo[color=#004000]r]” Garrison growled, grabbing Charles’ wrist with a vice grip while totally ignoring the sounds of Dominic entering ECU-2. Garrison’s scarred hand brought the syringe closer to Charles’ exposed forearm, a slight tremble causing the needle tip to wobble back and forth as it approached bare skin.
Suddenly the containment cell was bathed in light, casting Garrison and Charles’ shadows through the containment unit amongst bizarre prismatic refractions as Dominic’s lights bent and bounced through the dozen or so transparent cells.
Garrison turned to observe the armour-clad figure, his whole torso rotating due to a seemingly rigid neck.
“Who the fu-” He began, cut off as Dominic opened fire with his sidearm. Two bullets were spat out and hit Garrison centre mass, slamming into his abdominal muscles before falling to the ground - robbed of their momentum. The following shots flew wide as Garrison quickly turned, pulling Charles’ with him so that he came to a stop in Garrison’s shadow, shielded from further fire for the time being. Garrison roughly stuck the needle into Charles' arm, and began drawing blood as quickly as possible.
Garrison didn’t recognise the suit as one of the Heroes currently working in Scarlet City. His incursion into this facility was supposed to be at a time that would let him tear through the facility without interference from any super - not that Garrison minded facing off against any of the FSA agents currently in the city. However, to carry out a jailbreak, even Garrison saw the reason behind his benefactor choosing a time when he would be uncontested by another super. This man in a suit was a surprise, and Garrison had a habit of crushing surprises.


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


Kira took a few steps forward into the room, eventually smiling back at Sabina whose own sparkly grin was practically contagious. Kira’s shy demeanor was somewhat thawed out by that warm, affectionate smile, and she felt more comfortable as she came to a stop a few feet in front of Sabina’s bed.
“How did you meet Casey?” Sabina asked before adding, “My parents always had access to the FSA so when they learned I had powers they let me get evaluated.”
“I-” Kira began to respond, surprised by the question, “Well…”
Kira sat in the dark hugging her knees, shivering in the cold. Her grimy school uniform was soaked, drops of water from above rolled down her face and slowly added to the dank pool she crouched in alongside all the others.
“Well, it was earlier this year.”
They were told to get up and walk. Kira’s drenched shoes felt so heavy as her tired legs carried her up the stairs. Her head was bowed and her hair stuck to her face.
“After I - we - were kidnapped."
Kira raised her head and stared at the doors as they burst open. Silhouetted by the light that poured into the dingy hall, stood a man. Clad in a long coat which billowed around him, his outstretched hands brought a pair of pistols to bear on Kira’s bewildered captors.
“That was the first time I saw him.”
Kira felt the body slump down on top of her, dead. She was plunged into suffocating darkness again, pressed against the ground as gunshots boomed in the enclosed space. She couldn’t breath, everything was closing around her as the dead man’s weight crushed her. Kira cried for help, her dry throat only managing to croak out the word. Then a fierce heat began to burn within her, and her skin began to tingle until…
“And then I talked to him afterwards, after I used my powers,” Kira concluded, “-Unintentionally!” she added quickly, with an apologetic glance at Sabina.

Casey leaps off his jet bike as it glides to a stop and at the same time Mongrel shows up with her father as law enforcement pours in from the surrounding county. A shelter in place order across Scarlet City as a containment failure is feared. A perimeter is established around the building and Incident Command is established according to national protocols. Casey's handler John Martins as the ranking non-super with jurisdiction and appropriate training. The incident command post is hastily setup as Dominic fire his first shots at Garrison. A pristine 1970's Green and White Chevelle SS pulls up with a pair of classic round flashers mounted to the roof and the emblem of the Washington State Bureau of Cryptozoology on its door. A bus with the same emblem parks on the peripheral of the scene seemingly filled with many dull individuals. Two individuals step out one smirking wearing a pair of aviators and the other of large build and a quiet demeanor.

Mr.Martins gathers the supers and local leaders of each organization to begin his briefing, "The super criminals held here are from across the mid-west some are far more dangerous than others. Most of the site personnel are either missing or terminated. We may need to cut facility power which could complicate the containment of non-criminal hazardous individuals. All above ground exits are accounted for and secured. The city sewer connection will need to be secured and have the grate's integrity be verified. We should have the manpower to isolate the area broken in through to send a team of supers in and prevent escape."

"So about that sewer issue." The man in the aviators pipes up with discourse.

John replies, "Yes Progeny?"

"I would like to urge extreme caution as the reason I was called out here was the highly likely potential of a Rake living in the Scarlet City sewers. They are attracted to sound and I find it likely that this hunter type cryptid will be drawn to the sewer system around the containment complex due to noise of all the struggles in the facility above. Progeny says revealing an old book on what looks like mythological creatures, garnering even stranger looks from everyone present except for his sidekick who has a sullen look on his face.

John breaks the awkward silence following what was said by Progeny with, "Any other tales of creepy, weird or unusual? Casey want to tell a war story about the sandbox? No? Moving on." Progeny frowns as he reviews his notes on his assignment. "Aimpoint your job will be to escort Dr. Mieszaniec to his patient on the far side of the build of the containment breach. Casey and Mongrel your job will be to directly engage Garrison and neutralize any super criminals attempting to escape. All other law enforcement is to pick up appropriate equipment and isolate the breached section of the building. Under no condition are you to engage Garrison with small arms fire as you will only make him stronger. Progeny take your apprentice and secure the sewer with an appropriate amount of personnel. Everyone has their orders, if possible evacuate only wounded site personnel all others are to shelter in place until they can be evacuated. Go forth and execute, you all have your orders. I want everyone at their tasks as soon as possible."

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

"Its okay. I was there with you kidnapped by those creeps. Your blast had knocked me out so I never really knew what happened afterward as I had been taken to the hospital." Sabina says instinctively hugging Kira out of the habit of comforting others. "Oh." she says pulling away from Kira. "Kind of a habit I have when I try to comfort others." She says blushing and shyly smiling at Kira

Kira gasped slightly as Sabina embraced her. Out of surprise rather than discomfort, her body involuntarily stiffened and she tensed up from her shoulders to her toes. She felt her face grow hot as she rigidly sat with her hands in her lap, held by Sabina for a brief moment. Kira’s eyes glanced around the room awkwardly until Sabina pulled back and explained.
“It-it’s okay.” Kira said at last, and her tensed shoulders visibly relaxed. Apart from family, Kira hadn’t been very close with anyone in a very long time, and had been even more withdrawn since her parents’ deaths. Despite being slightly shocking, it had been far from unpleasant.
“Sorry for knocking you out...” was all Kira could think of saying, cheeks still bright pink and eyes sporadically meeting Sabina gaze as she brushed a stray lock of hair from her face.

Dominic fires the last round that was in his sidearm.
“Side arm rounds ineffective,” Jack reports as Dominic begins to reload.
Dominic stows his sidearm, “Bring up taser systems and fire when fully charged.” Dominic says as he gets down from his shooting position to face Garrison head on. “Tasers ready sir,” Jack says as Dominic puts his arm up to firing position.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Charles, still standing behind Garrison, feels the energy building up in Dominic's suit “Get out of the way!” Charles yells as he runs around Garrison, to get in between him and Dominic. As Dominic fires the tasers they dig deep into Charles torso Area and he gets the full blow of Dominic's Taser, increasing his energy, He channels all the energy building up into his right arm and lunches back at Dominic aiming at one of the energy hotspots of his suit.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“Alert, Main power relay five overload. Reactor energy feedback loop detec---tedtedted, A-AA-ai ii i Corrre Unstable.” Dominic Makes a swift punch at Charles but misses due to his systems being overloaded, after which falling over onto his back.
“Do what you want, but I want to get out of here now before that thing reboots.” Charles says to Garrison.

Garrison let out a barking laugh as Dominic keeled over and promptly slammed to the ground. The air was filled with a smoky scent almost as soon as the energy caused Dominic’s systems to overload and fail.
“Not bad,” Garrison grunted, grabbing Charles’ arm without any hesitation to extract a sample of his blood.


***

Aimpoint nodded, a signature scowl marking his face alongside a pair of ballistic glasses. He fiddled at his earpiece as Martins continued issuing orders, sighing as he tried to properly fit it while scanning the area for Dr. Mieszaniec.
This whole situation was a calamity, a worst case scenario for super-law-enforcement in this state at at least. It needed to be brought under control before criminals started running out of the facility.
