It had taken Aurora nearly three months of vigorous assessments, interviews, applications and training before she had finally secured a job at Shinra. Friends of her brother had been able to help her with the process. Whilst they were not as prepared to put their neck on the line, they did feel her brother had been killed unlawfully by somebody within Shinra and wanted to do their best to help.
She had hoped it would have been a quick job. In, find info, out. However, she had been in operations as a grunt for nearly a fortnight and had still mustered zero evidence to support her case. Friends of her brother had been moved to a different base and she was now acting completely alone. This made things incredibly difficult but she was determined to keep going. She kept herself to herself, followed orders and kept up with her responsibilities so as not to stand out or draw any attention to herself but she was beginning to think she may need to take riskier moves in getting what she wanted.
One think she had been successful in was tampering with her ID pass in such a way that it unlocked doors she did not have authorised access to. This was not quite a skeleton key that would open all doors but now she found herself inside an office that would normally only be available to higher ups. She knew she had a short window to investigate the place and now, fourty-five minutes in, she was still coming up empty.
Suddenly, Aurora heard a loud slamming sound, as though somebody was using brute force against one of the doors. Startled, she turned around and headed over to the main door of the room she was in. Slowly, she pressed the door open and peeked carefully through the gap. Down the corridor she could see four unknown civilians trying to get through the door further down the corridor.
“Civilians? Now what on Earth are they doing down here?” Aurora thought, narrowing her eyes to make them out in clearer detail. Each of them were heavily armed and she was not prepared to take them all on alone but she had to wonder what they were up to. It had been known for resistance memebrs against Shinra to often infiltrate this area but nobody have ever succeeded. Aurora felt lucky that even she had made it this far. Whatever their reasons, they were clearly enemies of Shinra. And an enemy of your enemy is a friend.
She removed her helmet and lay it down on the table beside her before pushing the door completely open and headed down the corridor slowly towards the group.
“Hello, hello. And what do we have here then?” It was dangerous to confront them in her Shinra soldier attire but she kept her distance and hoped they would not lauch an all out attack. “I'm not looking for trouble. I'm genuinely curious.”

  Cloud squeezed the hilt of his blade, the sound of his leather glove tightening creaking in his ear, he was tense. The corridor stretched out ahead of them perhaps fifty meters before becoming a t-shaped intersection, both new corridors leading into the unknown. There was definitely something off about the situation they found this lab in, as if it had been abandoned at some point, though recently. The ex-Soldier watched as Nika approached the nearest door on their right and with a quick forceful motion kicked into the mat metallic door which gave way with the sound of twisting metal and concrete breaking at the strike plate. Cloud slid behind the others and peered into the dark room, unable to make out much with just the dim flicker of light from the corridor.
   ” Anyone bring a flash light? ” Cloud asked sardonically when the female voice called out at them from down the main corridor. Cloud instinctively pulled his buster sword free even as the woman, dressed clearly in a Shinra uniform, proclaimed that she didn't want trouble. The light from the overhead fluorescent lights briefly illuminated the woman, who was unarmed and approaching cautiously. ” What's it look like? ” Cloud responded to her initial question, weary to reveal anything about who they were and what it was they were doing.

Void nodded back to Karth as he noticed the man had readied his weapons, and then the raven-haired ninja's eyes shifted back and forth between the other two blondes as he crouched toward Nika and the door she had decimated. He felt he had a duty to watch the silver-haired girl's back as he'd said he would, but as the woman in the ShinRa uniform had appeared he felt he needed to engage the new target. If Nika had used a stealthier approach to the door then he might've been able to think up a decent deception. Now he couldn't think of much else to say, other than a foolish attempt to break the ice and hope the apparent officer hadn't called any reinforcements. If the conversation went south, he discreetly readied himself to throw his large shuriken at her in an attempt to hopefully end things before they escalate further.

With a muffled clearing of the throat he gave Nika a gentle pat on the shoulder and stood up next to his other ally, whose name he still didn't know. “More fancy blonde hair, looks like you two have something in common.” Completely ignoring the fact that Karth also had fancy blonde hair he leaned in closer to the unnamed man, nearly nudging his elbow as he sarcastically spoke just loud enough for all five of them to hear. “Maybe you should introduce yourself?” As much as he was trying to throw the potential security officer off, he also did want to see if there was the slightest chance that the man would actually tell them his name.

     As the metal door buckled under the force of the blow the sound of bending metal ecoed through the corridor, accompanied by the faint sound of crumbling concrete as it all gave way. With that display of strength Nika suddenly lost interest in the contents of the room, and instead moved aside while folding her arms as she donned an almost catlike grin before shooting wry glance toward the ninja. It was clear as day that she felt that with this she had somehow managed to one-up Void's earlier display of acrobatics.

As the metal door came down and the ShinRa employee appeared on the other side, Karth found himself for a moment feeling like a cactuar in the headlights. Instinct to not panic and flee from a lifetime of dangerous deals kicked in as Karth dropped his brass knuckles subtly back ito his pockets as his right hand went to the back of his head that swung back and forth, surveying the scene, “Well ah…looks like we took a down the wrong door here.” Karth patted his pants as if trying to feel for something lost,
“You know what? I seemed to have lost that work order. Anyone else remember to bring it?” Karth looked around the group and put his hands up, “I'm sure the order must have been passed down to you. Could you point us where the demolition needs to be done?” Karth pointed his last question to the stranger with a charming smile.

Aurora stood still on the spot, not wanting to initiate any unwanted combat. From the responses given she could tell they were probably up to no good. However, something was telling her they were not just run of the mill mobsters looking to get back at Shinra. They were skilled and they were prepared. 
“I'm sorry, I don't believe I'm the one who should be introducing themselves,” she cocked a smile. “And the demolition team crew that we are expecting are not to arrive until tomorrow.” She was lying but it amused her to play with the boy's charade. “Why are you here?”
Hoping for an honest answer, she cut to the chase. In an ideal world, she would soon be able to convince them she could help.

  The lights over head continued the irregular flicker as everyone's focus had shifted to the unexpected new comer, who clearly wasn't buying any of the attempts made to legitimize their presence in the laboratory. Feeling the tension rising it was clear any cover they could have hoped to have was blown and now they were just wasting time until the inevitable.
   ” Humph! The name's Cloud, and we don't have time for this. ” the ex-SOLDIER spoke up as he eyes darted from the Shinra employee to Void's then back quickly as he stepped past the others pulling the massive sword from his back with a flourished downward twirl. ” Let's just take care of her and— ” Cloud had begun to speak again before a snarling sound and the scuttle of movement started from somewhere inside the door which Nika had trashed that caused him to stop speaking and turn to look back into the darkness wondering what it was he had just heard.

Ready to attack the potential enemy before him, Void began to pull his arm back in order to throw the 4-Point Shuriken at her on Cloud's command. It was then that he heard the sudden commotion that stopped him, and he paused while reaching back in mid-throw. Adrenaline rushed through his body, his eyes snapped toward the source of the sudden commotion, and he quickly withdrew his attack as he shifted himself to engage whatever was in the darkened room. All he could make out was Nika and the devastated doorway she had destroyed, everything else behind her seemed to be shrouded in darkness.

“It could be a trap…” Void whispered from under his large fabric collar as he nodded to Nika and the team. He then shot a gaze out of the corner of his eye back to the blonde woman that had approached them, skeptically searching for any sign that would reveal her true intentions toward the group as he readied himself once more for an attack.

     As she started to lose interest in the rest of the party Nika chose to crouch down, and moved the blue materia in her right-hand close to her face in order to seek guidance from the gem once more. If the newcomer had shown hostile intent it would have been more fun; she hadn't though, which left Nika bored and anxious while she waited for the rest of the party to deal with the current situation. “Mhm,”Nika acknowledged disinterestedly, almost as if she were engaged in some form of one-sided conversation. Yet she snapped from the conversation suddenly, turning to glare in annoyance at fancy hair, who had only just now (finally) introduced himself as Cloud. Impulsively she reached for a stray piece of rubble, hefting it in her palm in order to take measure of it before she began to ready herself to throw the stone at Cloud's head with all the strength her arm could muster.
   Then came a snarl that echoed through the halls, accompanied by the faint sounds of movement. Silently she rose to her feet once more, peering into the remnants of the door she had broken down. With the stone still in-hand Nika brushed a stray lock of silver from her sight, while her free hand slowly freed her broadsword from it sheathe. Without consulting the rest of the party she lobbed the rock into the darkened room, hoping to lure whatever lurked within into sight. Unlike the other two Nika assumed no battle stance of any kind–no, she simply stood there, her weapon hanging loose at her side. Yet there was a thirst to those glowing green-blue eyes, a faint grin upon her lips, and a determined grit to her teeth. If it hadn't been obvious before it would have been now: Nika was no SOLDIER, fighting to protect their honor. She was no terrorist, fighting for the sake of the planet. She was a hunter in search of prey.

As Karth's story began to fall apart judging by the ShinRa's employee's response to it, the sickening feeling of needing to flee began to creep over him. Karth found his hands moving back into his pockets and hooking his fingers into his brass knuckles, reading himself for both option available to him. All thought processing over option ended abruptly as noise came from the door that had previously been destroyed. Karth pulled his fists, clad in his brass knuuckles, from his pockets and move into a stance ready to act. His head turned back towards the ShinRa employee while keeping the door in his sight, “Any chance you got the day wrong with that demolition crew?”

Aurora noticed the group reaching for their weapons, “Come on now. The four of you against the one of me doesn't seem fair, does it?” 
Suddenly, she heard the ferocious sounds of hellhounds behind the broken doorway. She readied her pistols and began to walk towards the group. “Looks like you've been discovered. Let's deal with this and then you can explain to me why you're down here.”

  The ex-SOLDIER found his eyes locked on the doorway, a triangle of poor dissipating light was cast inward towards the unknown. The gnawing snarls from the darkness were growing louder and closer and the mention of hellhounds had Cloud's attention, it would not be his first encounter with the creatures. He quickly found himself wishing one of them had actually brought a flashlight, instead he knew that one of them would have to enter the room and blindly search for the light switch, and that was assuming the bulbs would even be good. If the quality of light from the main corridor was any indication, that could be a problem.
   ” Be ready for anything. ” Cloud said plainly as he stepped past everyone, moving through the door into the darkness. Taking the weight of his blade in his left hand he backed up against the wall to the right of the door, at the very least he didn't want whatever was in the room to surround him. Using his right hand Cloud flailed it out along the wall, hoping and feeling for a switch. It seemed like minutes had passed but when he found the switch the lights came on with a low dimness to them that cast the room in shadows of growing intensity.

The room was large, larger than he had expected, perhaps twenty feet square. Much of the right side was filled with desks and worktables that would have once held computers and other tools but were now mostly empty. However it was the left side of the room that caught Cloud's immediate attention, it was dominated by snaking wires and ducts that all converged on two large glass cylinders—one intact, the other shattered which had littered the floor around the area in glass and some kind of thick liquid. In the back left corner of the room another door was open and the liquid trailed from the cylinder through the open doorway into more darkness.

Cloud felt something welling inside of him as he looked at the mass of odd machinery, something familiar that worried him. He could feel his head spinning and for a moment his knees felt weak but the from the doorway a snarling toothed mouth emerged and stopped, followed shortly by another, and it sounded as if even more would soon join them. The hellhounds.

“There's only one of you here?” Void's brow arched with curiosity at the unidentified Shinra employee before he snapped back to the room Cloud had managed to illuminate. The commotion within it grabbed his attention, and he quickly moved next to the doorway to peek further inside. What he saw caused his eyes to widen, then focus. “What is Shinra doing down here?!” He exclaimed with a sense of disbelief in what he was seeing, until he followed the trail of liquid with his eyes and noticed a pair of snarling snouts that had begun to emerge from the darkness at the distant corner of the room. Adrenaline raced through the ninja's body, his grip tightened around the core of his four-point shuriken, and without hesitation he swiftly dashed into the room.

Void shot an inquisitive glance over to the blonde woman, eager to see if she was actually going to assist them, then returned his gaze forward as he leapt onto one of the workstations and vaulted off of it. He nearly shot straight up to the ceiling, slightly arched forward as he skillfully twisted at the peak of his jump. With the momentum of his acrobatic maneuver Void whipped his shuriken through the air and threw it at the closer of the two hounds with a powerful swing of his arm. The weapon gleamed with the low dim light of the room as it bolted through the air with a distinct arch, struck the hound across its snout, and flew back through the air toward Void who landed on another station in time to catch the weapon with his right hand.

     Nika simply remained as she was, eyes honed in upon the yawning void before them for the barest hint of movement. She maintained an idle posture even as Cloud made his way into the room in search of the lights, a stark contrast to her predatory gaze. As the lights in the room burst to life she felt her body stiffen on reflex; the momentary blindness of the sudden change in light levels triggering a reaction beyond her control. In spite of the discomfort the sudden illumination caused Nika focused upon the room, immediately catching sight of a pair of canid monsters stalking through what appeared to be the remnants of an office. She calmly walked into the room, her pace more fitting for a casual stroll than the heat of battle as she waited for the right opportunity to safely approach her prey.
   It was then that the ninja flew forward, rapidly closing distance with one of the beasts. With the moment she had sought now at-hand Nika burst into a sudden flurry of motion; just on the edge of her peripheral vision she saw the ninja's weapon take flight, it was too fast to take a perfect measure of its trajectory, but she was confident that it was far enough not to pose a threat. As she closed in upon the nearest Hellhound it recoiled as the shuriken struck it across the snout, but she was too far away to take advantage. Yet a toppled chair in her path presented an alternative way to seize the moment. Nika dialed down her pace just enough that she was able to slide her left foot under the back of the chair and kick it up enough that she was able to take hold of it with her free hand. Quickly she spun about with the chair still in-hand before she loosed it like a projectile, spinning wildly as it flew through the air until it collided with the beast with a loud crunch.

Karth followed behind the group towards the noise. With each step, he could feel his body want to turn back towards the exit with as much speed as possible. He knew that AVALANCHE knew that he was here and leaving would seemingly cause him more trouble with work than some ominous growling coming from the mostly abandoned ShinRA lab where they did unknown experiments or created some evil mont-. Karth wanted to leave even more as he ran through the possible danger that awaited him and the group. His eyes wondered towards Nika as he thought about what her and that arm may do to him should he leave. With a deep breath, Karth steeled his nerves as he accepted to avoid the consequences he could guarantee and give him a chance of a better outcome.

Karth walked into the defunct office looking for the source of the growling. The pair of hellhound showed themselves through the door way and Karth began to rethink his whole thought process of staying, but now feared that he would be trapped back at the elevators. Before he could decide either way, his allies began their assault against one of the hellhounds. His instinct for preservation drove him to work together and he ran forward. He may not know the best decision to stay alive, he did know how to fight so that he would do. Karth moved behind both Void's and Kira's attacks and moved towards the other hellhound. The hellhound launched forward as Karth moved towards him. The beast was met by a swift left uppercut, a right hook, and a jovial smile.

Aurora was interested to see what this group could do and why they were down here. Although helping them would risk her cover, she felt inclined to help them in the battle against the hellhounds. She ran forward, her ranged weapons allowing her to stay at the rear, and drew both pistols up at shoulder height. The others all showed excellent skill in combat and, although not necessarily a fighter herself, Aurora was an amazing shot. She aimed and pulled the trigger, firing two white blinding bolts of magic energy hurling towards the nearest hellhound. The two bullets seemed to wind and spiral through the air, connecting half way through travel to merge into one, before seering into the flesh of the hellhounds side. She hoped to show the others she could be trusted.

  Things started to happen fast— combat, Cloud had noticed, was always like a blur. The dark haired one had moved through the door first, and much like his entrance into this facility minutes before, he was showing off. Cloud watched the arc of his shuriken as it struck the first of the snarling beasts and beginning to plot his own attack when Nika moved past, swiftly and with great speed and strength hurled one of the desk chairs across the room towards the door from which the Hellhounds had emerged. He heard the fiend's wimper as it was toppled back into the second hound from the force of the impact.
   ” I guess that works. ” Cloud muttered to himself as he stepped away from the wall, both hands grasping his blade now as Karth moved past, heading straight for the creatures. Karth landed his blows as the other one, the ShinRa employee, fired from the doorway. Clearly she wasn't aware these creatures would be loose either, her being in this lab was still something they were going to have to figure out. Sensing his chance to strike was now Cloud started forward when three more of the crimson fiends, their yellow eyes glowing in the low light, came from the darkness that was the doorway beyond. The ex-SOLDIER slowed his pace, thinking that maybe getting too close right now was a bad idea. Stopping in the center of the large room Cloud felt the weight of his Buster Sword in his hands, dropping his left arm as he began to flick the hilt, allowing the weight of the blade to begin the spin. Guiding the massive sword, Cloud forced it around a full three hundred and sixty degrees and then with a push of his right hand and a lean of his body forward the Buster Sword was back in it's harness on his back. Hands now free, the blonde haired man tensed his upper body and as the sparks began to shoot around him he summoned a storm of burning lightning which jolted through the pack of feral hounds.

  The first two fiends were cautious as they moved forward through the doorway towards the light and noise. They snarled and showed their teeth as the attackers began their offensive. The sound of the injured Hellhound, the whimper, had attracted the others who upon entering the room felt the shock tear through all of them. One had had fallen over, but the others survived, and now they were mad. The second beast through the door flicked it's yellow eyes towards the silver haired woman, the one who had thrown the chair, and rushed forward bearing teeth, biting down into her leg. The Next hound's eyes were on Void and it too darted across the distance taking a quick bite at the ninja's legs. The third mutant canine followed the first of the group, but did not attempt to bite, instead whipping the long protruding tentacles from it's back across the torso of the silver haired one as it jumped past. The last fiend lurched forward with a quick snap, sinking it's teeth into Karth's leg.

“Tch!” Void's azure eyes caught those of the hellhound that rapidly approached him from across the room. He thought his distance from the fight might make him less of a target, but he also hadn't expected so many to pour out of the next room. Nika and Karth also seemed to have a similar issue, though it looked as if the silver-haired girl made more appealing of a snack as she was attacked by two of the creatures. The raven-haired ninja quickly spun his four-point shuriken in his hand as he slapped it onto its clasp on his back. As the hound's maw opened over the corner of the desk that Void stood upon he swung both of his arms from his legs to his head and back while he sprang off of the station. His upper body arched back, his hands reached backwards for the desk behind him, and he vaulted into a back hand spring as the fangs of the hound snapped shut where his foot had been. The lithe ninja repeated his evasive acrobatics, hoping to outmaneuver his enemy as he attempted to reposition himself to aid Nika. Void continued his fluid chain of back hand springs, narrowly avoiding the hound's jaws as he swiftly transitioned across the tops of two more desks in nearly a single second. On the final desk, tucked up against the wall on the far right side of the room, Void bounced out of the spring into a short flip, landing faced toward Nika and the rest of the party.

He overestimated how much time he thought he'd given himself as he clutched his left hand over his chest, and began to channel the magical energy of his weapon's materia into his hand.“I've got you Nik- AH!” A searing pain shot throughout his leg as the hound caught him and clamped its fangs into his calf. Void grunted loudly as he was suddenly yanked off his feet and slammed onto his back against the top of the desk.“Gah!” He growled through clenched teeth as he winced and looked down at the beast that gnawed on his leg.“As soon as I've dealt with this!” Void threw his outstretched left hand toward the Hellhound that bit him, holding it just inches from the creatures face as he quickly finished rechanneling the essence from his Ice materia. Cold mist formed at the palm of his hand in an instant, then just as quickly transformed into a solid shard of ice that was shot between the hound's eyes. The shard bursted upon impact with the creature, immediately expanding and shattering into countless glittering shards that slowly dissipated.

     Nika was ready to follow through as the desk chair hurtled into the hellhound, sending it crashing into the other with the sheer force of the impact. Before she could, however, the newcomer fired off a pair of shots that punched through the beast even as more of them began to make their way into the room. It was obvious even to her that the monster was upon its last legs, but to attack blindly now would've been foolhardy given the presence of the rest of the pack. As she considered the best way to approach the situation a bolt of lightning surged through the room, colliding with the wounded one first before arcing through the entire pack with deadly efficiency.
   As the smell of charred flesh filled the room Nika felt her stomach growl, and the momentary distraction proved enough for one of the hellhounds to creep close unnoticed. proved painful as one of the hellhounds managed to creep close without her notice. It lunged forward to seize upon that moment of opportunity, ripping through her stockings and sinking into the soft tissue of her left leg. As its fangs tore into her leg Nika couldn't help but let out a cry of pain, until that too was cut short as another of the beasts took the chance to slam the grotesque tentacle upon its spine into her back. The force of the blow was more than enough to knock the air from her lungs, leaving her stunned as she gasped for breath. For a split-second she was completely out of it, but a sudden gentle pulse from the materia fused with her right hand brought her back to sense.
   With a pained snarl Nika shifted her weight onto her wounded leg, somehow pushing through in spite of the pain, and slammed her good leg into the beast's side. The awkward angle meant she couldn't do any real harm, but the impact was enough to startle the beast and free her leg from its maw. Careful to avoid putting to much weight upon her bad leg, Nika retreated awkwardly, but knew that given the current situation there was no way to avoid the pair from flanking her. Only a few steps later she backed up into a desk, and quickly chose to capitalize on the only way to escape the desperate situation that was available to her. With inspiration drawn from a certain ninja's earlier display of acrobatics she bent backwards onto the desk, leveraging her full weight onto her left arm, before twisting about and vaulting into the air with all the strength she could muster.
   As it would turn out that she clearly did not know her own strength, as she soared through the air further than she expected before coming to a painful realization: she had no idea how to land. A fact that would become apparent to everyone as she crashed into the top of one of the desks before tumbling off of it and onto the floor. Nika awkwardly began to stumble to her feet as she took in her new surroundings. Void was only a few feet of open space away from her now, with another one of the beasts jaws clenched tightly upon his leg. She was almost to her feet as she watched him form a shard of ice that crashed into the beast at point-blank range. Once more upon her feet at last she bound forward, lunging forward to the best of her current ability. With a cold smirk that failed to reach that predatory gaze she thrust her blade forward, clean through the hellhound's throat and out the other side.
   In an attempt to steady herself Nika brought her left leg down, a mistake that sent surge of pain down her leg and instead had her stupidly lurch forward. She felt her right knee crash into the beast's side, before falling over the monster and somehow landing on her back on the other side, her legs resting upon its corpse. In the midst of all this she had somehow maintained a tight grip upon her blade, which meant the blade had sliced clean through the beast's throat. “I meant to do that.” Nika declared sheepishly as she simply lay there, staring at the ceiling. “Could you help me up…? My leg hurts.”
