Maddoxs watches as Casey and mongeral walks away and grumbles to himself in discontent.
"now trot off and get me that lizard, god now he wants me as his own personal servant..." Maddox gets his helmet back on and Runs in the direction the lizard ran off in... "Jack do you have any traces or anything tracible we can follow?" "Scanning.... trace amount of DNA at end of ally way, trail ends...." "GREAT, now that we are deputized see if we have some type of satellites in orbit or something that we can get a layout of the city...""Connecting to FSA servers...."

Casey is notified of continued pestering of FSA servers committed by Maddox. Casey sighs and mentally composes a text message to Maddox, "Stop trying to access FSA servers. We don't have satellites and our servers don't hold city plans. You can find a map of the city sewers at the Scarlet City official website. You will get access to FSA servers later but I activate one of my sensor scout drones to help you out. His name is Fred and he should be there in about ten minutes. Bring Fred back to me in one piece, okay. Before I forget I will send you file on my encounter with Martin Zucker you may find your current query to be similar my encounter. Casey makes sure to send the file directly to Maddox in PDF format before becoming present in the conversation at the table.

Casey noticed Kira disturbed face guessed her thoughts in the context of the incident of the evening and tried to address them. "Don't worry about taking down aberrations and don't compare yourself to other agents. We are all different and you will be matched to situations that you are suited for. There is an agent that specializes in dealing with aberrations such as that lizard monster although I haven't heard from him in a long while. He had a mission in the cascade mountains right, Karina?" Casey looks at Karina and she nods to him saying, "yeah I think so, but I deliberately avoid keeping tabs on him. I want nothing to do with him." Casey continues with a hint of amusement, "Right because he is the only man who can get away with acting how he does around you and still live. Karina shot Casey an angry annoyed look and he immediately dropped the subject, "like I was saying match ups like what happened with Garrison and you Kira won't happen normally. He seemed to be almost a perfect counter to your abilities. Your abilities aren't the sole reason we wanted to recruit you though. They are how we found you but there is more to you than explosions. You showed amazing courage and a willingness to push yourself all the way to the edge. Few people have those two characteristics together and fewer still are supers with useful powers. I keep rambling but my point is don't compare yourself other people, as long as you are better than you were yesterday then you will do fine."

Dominic goes onto the public website to bring up the city sewer layout map. “Jack, please, bring up likely routes while we wait for this drone that Casey is sending.” “Yes, sir. Calculating all possible routes.”
Dominic’s hud lights up with 4 or 5 possible routes including one that enters the sewer system. “Please plot a route to the most likely route, and we will go from there.”
“Yes, sir, plotting…”

Before long a drone arrives at the scene approaching Maddox. The drone greets Maddox with a robotic text to speech voice ripped from an open source website, “Ah Dominic the deputy murderer. Let’s cut to the chase, Master Norton needs you because he can only be in one place at a time. Pretty mediocre agent in my opinion but what do I know? I just compile infinite amounts of data and look for patterns to follow. Like that trail of slimy blood that you have been standing in because you didn’t install an ultraviolet light on your suit?” A pair of lights on the underbody of Fred shine with each syllable spoken by the drone. Fred illuminates Maddox with a UV light revealing a consistent trail of blood that had been missed by everyone before.

“Well hello to you too.” Maddox says before looking down to see the trail of blood.
“Jack, add UV sensors to the shopping list.” “yes sir.” “So si-”
Fred interjects before Maddox gets started talking again, “Yes, sir? Seriously? What does it take to program some personality into your AI? To answer what you were going to ask. Follow the blood, kill the aberration and arrive at six o’clock sharp in Casey’s office.” Fred turns toward the entrance of the sewer with the UV light showing the path that the lizard monster had taken.

“My orders are to bring in the aberration alive but I do appreciate you having the same view as I do.” Jack interrupts and goes onto the suit’s mic. “I may be lacking in personality but atleast i have connectivity, outside of radio waves.”

Fred snaps back at Jack talking out of turn, seeming mildly annoyed, at the AI with the inferiority complex. “OH, the sacrifices I must endure for the security of the world. Could the talking boilerplate shut up while I talk to the unintelligence? We don’t have all night to catch the lizard and I am incapable of entering the sewer with the manhole cover in the way.”

Dominic follows Fred to the sewer entrance and lifts the manhole cover up allowing entrance for himself and the moody drone. “Diagnostics complete, faults with the taser system corrected. Warning: fuel at 45% left side fuel cell leak detected.”

Kira blushed in response to Casey’s kind words, and her face lit up with a shy smile. The generous compliments clearly caught the teenage girl by surprise, interrupting her self-doubting and dark thoughts with something brighter, like the sun breaking through storm clouds. To Casey and Karina, it became clear that the girl wasn’t used to being complimented, or perhaps treated this kindly at all, by anyone other than her loving older brother who sat with a proud grin on his face as Kira dipped her head to hide colouring cheeks.
“Thanks!” Kira sincerely thanked Casey, his words meant more to her than he could imagine. A warm and fuzzy feeling settled itself in Kira’s heart, banishing the self-doubts and uncertainty that plagued her only moments before - at least for now. “And I will try to be…”

"And that will be all you need to do." Casey and Karina smile seeing the positive effect his words had on Kira. Shortly after they finish their dinner with a few more words about the program. Casey also makes a point about needing Kira to come to his office the next day in the afternoon to issue her some gear appropriate for the Super Cadet Program. He makes sure to pay for the meal waiting for the Zieglers to leave before leaving the restaurant with Karina not long after and retiring to the Black Bullet for the night. Before going to sleep Casey checks Fred's feed and sees that he had just entered the sewers with Maddox following the trail aberration.

“Eject Fuel Cell, engage emergency battery reserve.” “aye sir, emergency power reserves active, Damaged fuel cell disengaged ready to pull…” a part of Dominic’s suit open on his back and Dominic reaches around and pulls out a short cylindrical cell with what looks like very bad corrosion on the bottom of it and it is smoking. Fred’s sensors pick up on the radiation almost instantly.

Fred quickly descends into the open manhole almost fleeing the radiation without comment. He illuminates the tunnel with a variety of lights designed to pick up various residues on the walls of the sewers. The UV makes the reptilian’s blood glow in the near pitch black of the sewer. Fred waits for Maddox before following the trail of blood.

Maddox with his suit now on power reserves and low energy mode, has a wrist mounted flashlight. Maddox drops the damaged fuel cell into the deepest puddle he finds to keep it cool while he follows the trail lit up by Fred.

Fred turns around after picking up the “Splunk” of the fuel cell. His RAD sensors drop to slightly above background radiation levels. As if he was shrugging his nonexistent shoulders as he continues down the sewer tunnel. His LED lights barely illuminate several yards ahead of him as he flies down the tunnel. The two of them reach a larger tunnel about twenty feet across with a calm stinking river flowing under the city. Fred stays clear of the reek as he continues to follow the trail of glowing blood under the UV light.

“Thank god for air filters.” Maddox mentions as he looks at the atmospheric quality outside the suit from sensors. “You picking up anything stronger, how close are we?” Maddox asks Fred as he continues to follow the moody drone.

“Judging by the increase of blood the creature’s lair should be close. In Fact right there seems to be some residue of shed skin right there. Could you pick it up and hold it under my lights?” Fred says shining his spotlight on a patch of scaly skin that is laying on the ground near the sewer wall.

Dominic walks over to the piece of skin residue and holds it up close to Fred for him to scan. “For a piece of skin this large it doesn’t weigh that much.” Dominic mentions as Fred continues his scan. Fred’s scan reveals little besides similarities to the Silicon
Valley instance of the super lizard. “Proximity Alert Sir!” Dominic looks around as not expecting anyone else in the sewers other than the creature.

Sounds of struggle erupt suddenly from beyond a junction in the sewer’s tunnel. As the hunter and the drone approach the junction the frame of what looks to be a large humanoid flashes by in the darkness. Fred’s camera barely caught a few frames of the new super and looking down the direction it went revealed nothing as it was gone as quickly as it had come. Heavy labored breathing can be heard from the direction it and the brief sounds of struggle had come. Dominic enters the junction and sees the super lizard to his left putting his back to the direction the other super had gone. Dominic is stunned at the size of the lizard but is more worried about the super that injured it. He hides that fact from Fred, “Scan the creature and determine any needed medical care, if it is savable. This thing is not dying before I deliver it to Casey.” Jack responds, “yes, sir. Taking internal scans, and assessing medical status.”
Jack continues to scan the creature as it sits leaning against the wall with now heavier breathing.

“Hey, normie-supremacist we have incoming from the roof.” As Fred finishes alerting Maddox, yells are heard as FBI SWAT members pour down rappel lines dropping in from manhole covers open to the dark night sky. The large room in the sewer is flooded with lights from the numerous FBI agents. Dominic looks around startled by all the FBI personnel swarming the area. As being on reserve power all available sensors where being taken up by the medical scans which were still in progress at the time.

The medical scans reveal the super lizard being in critical condition as FBI medics cautiously approach it. Maddox informs the medics on site of the creature’s condition and goes over the areas where most of the trauma was sustained. Larry Thorne approaches Maddox asking in his ear what had happened before the FBI had arrived.

“Agent thorne. Nice to see you again. Me and the moody drone over there that Casey has loaned me have been tracking the creature since the initial attack under orders to recover and bring it back to Casey, we tracked to the nearby chamber just a few meters down the south tunnel when we heard a struggle in this junction. As we approached a new type of super ran past us, he was too fast for my sensors but fred over there might have something, We found the creature in this condition. I was scanning it for a medical assessment when you arrived with your team. Oh and by the way, if you keep going down that tunnel you might find some thorium, I don’t know how it got there, please don’t pick it up.”

The flash of the super passing Fred's camera startled Casey from his light dozing and boredom watching the stream. He went through the event frame by frame to see if he could make out anything but a blur. All he really saw was a very large vaguely humanoid shape that reminded him to much of Karina. He couldn't make out very much but he could eliminate a possibility. Getting up he walked to the door of his sleeping compartment then walked to the end of the rail car. He quietly opened the door holding it so it wouldn't squeak like it normally did and passed into Mongrel's sleeping car. Walking down to her bedroom in the car silently Casey hesitated thinking about knocking on her door but deciding instead look through the key hole. Looking through the keyhole he saw her peacefully sleeping in her bed with her whole body covered by the sheet except for her head facing the far side of the train car. Casey pulled away from the keyhole and walked silently back towards his own bedroom.

Picking up the tablet he lays back down on his sofa outside his bedroom compartment in the sleeper car. He finds that in the time it took to check on his friend and return to Fred's stream the FBI had shown up and secured the subdued lizard man. Maddox and Agent Thorne stood there talking about the creature and situation. Casey sends a message via Fred to the two instructing them on the location of the FSA Secure super holding facility on the outskirts of Scarlet City. Casey also specified to Maddox to get some rest and take care of his damaged armor once the creature was locked up in the holding facility. Casey remotely makes arrangements for the super to be transported discretely to the holding facility before going to bed himself.

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

Casey woke to an alarm he set a few short hours prior. He performed his self care before getting a start on the eternal pile of paperwork that followed him everywhere even the breakfast table. No matter what he did he could never really find a job that didn't require numerous forms filled out by the byzantine bureaucracy he had surrendered his allegiance too. Mongrel joined him shortly at the breakfast table as the machines brought the two supers their typical breakfast items. The two quietly eat their meal before they get up and leave for the agency car waiting in the parking lot of the rail yard.

The Federal building near the center of town was a far sight nicer than the super holding facility on the outskirts. Arriving at the large brick building they look at each other anxiously and Karina breaks the silence, "I hope we aren't brought into this building one day." Casey replies gaining the confidence to walk towards the imposing structure, "we won't be. The work we do and the fame we have earned will prevent anything like that from happening to us." Karina gives Casey a concerned look but seemed to be placated enough to follow Casey. The two continued into the building and walked towards the large holding cell that contained the giant lizard man. He was sleeping but in stable enough condition, the walls of his cell were thick plexiglass allowing his wardens to keep watch on him. While this was not a torture sight it was a prison and it kept its prisoners inside its walls. The sight was vaguely known to supers and unknown to the general populace. How it was kept such a secret Casey didn't know. Casey had his suspicions but knew it was likely that the status quo was maintained by its obscurity and its existence went unspoken. Casey and Mongrel got to work documenting the super lizard venturing into the cell with it sedated so that they could closely study its physiology with a team of experts.
