Following the events from your previous mission, Lexa Grimoire's twin sister feels the need to uncover her history, as she doesn't have memories of ever having one. She sends you a black strip, that when you touch it, it lights up bright blue and a message plays in your mind.
"Umm... hi Nii-san... It's me, Lexa. The one... who tried to kill you, not the one who protected you... I-I'm sorry for what I did, but I was following dad's orders! I... I need your help with finding out who I am... I know you don't have a reason to help me, especially after what I did, but if you do I'd be eternally grateful to you!" the voice plays, with a tone that can only be labeled as a tormented soul.
Upon arriving, Lexa Grimoire runs up and gives you a hug while also crying from the joy of seeing you forgave her enough to help. A player will have to RP as the twin sister Lexa, since she's an exact copy of the original Lexa Grimoire...
- Lexa Grimoire (NPC):
Boss: Lexa Grimoire (NPC)
Lexa is almost always extremely chipper, and friendly towards her friends. When she fights she changes to an extremely focused, neutral state. She has 4 spells available to the person RP'ing as her, as well as the ability to make all the circuits on her body shine bright gold (like a light source). When entering combat, the circuits will automatically become bright.
Teleport - Lexa is able to teleport anywhere within 10 meters 1time every 3 posts
Shadow Burst - Lexa becomes a shadow and disappears, reappearing anywhere within 15 meters 1 time per 4 posts
Heal - Lexa heals herself or 1 target for 10% HP immediately. This can be used 1 time per 5 posts
Blood-Rage - Lexa's circuits glow blood red, and then explode like a blown light bulb. Lexa attacks all enemies for +50% rank damage, as well has can move 30% faster for 2 posts. Lexa cannot use any of her spells for 3 posts after her blood-rage has receded, and this can be done 1 time
She explains that inside is a testing facility, one that was connected to the one you found her in. She doesn't know much more than that, so you'll all have to be very careful when going through.
Weak: Gelatinous Homunculus
These are gelatinous forms, they don't look like anything you've ever seen aside from having eyes. They can't talk very well, and attack by throwing up their blood on you. It's obvious they were experiments that went horrifically wrong... Aside from being odd forms, they move at 30 mile per hour, and since they're really mushy, it's hard to get a firm hit on them. It will take 8 C rank hits or the equivilant to defeat it.
Normal: Circuit Covered Scientist
This guy has circuits all over his body, and is roughly 6ft tall. The rest of his description is up to the player (could be a zombie scientist, be shirtless, look like a normal scientist etc...). He attacks you with a scalpel, and a bone saw, each dealing B rank damage. It takes 10 hits of C rank damage or the equivilant to take him down. His circuits make it so he cannot be killed in 1 hit, and also make it so every other hit the damage is reflected back in the direction it came from, and 5x the speed. Additionally, he is immune to poison, stun, burn, bleed, stat reduction, and all other forms of Crowd Control.
Strong: Mutated Military Brute
Massive, armoured, carrying a giant shotgun in one hand and a massive metal pole with a skull on the top in the other. He takes 16 hits of C rank to go down, and will attack Lexa Grimoire specifically if no-one gets in his way. His special attack is ground slam and full auto. Ground slam causes A rank damage to all within 10 meters of him by slamming his pole on the ground, and full auto makes his shotgun fire all 20 of it's shells at once dealing A rank damage to whoever he's aiming at, and anyone within 5 feet of that person.
Boss: Arianna Grimoire
Arianna doesn't say anything to you aside from "You're supposed to be dead. I'll make sure it get's done this time." to Lexa Grimoire and then attacks. If you haven't encountered her at all over the past 27 posts, she will spawn automatically for you. She has a beautiful body, and long red hair, with clothes that are your to describe. She is defeated in three phases, but is 100% immune to everything during the first two (but will also not attack during them). Phase one, she spawns 2x Circuit covered Scientists and 1x Mutated Military Brute. After they're defeated she will spawn 5x Homunculi and 2x Military Brutes. Third phase she will have exhausted her magic power, and will fight you using a pair of daggers. She is very fast, very agile, and hits for B rank damage. Her being a summoner, she is weaker than her pawn and takes 10 hits of C rank damage to defeat.
After this fight, Lexa Grimoire will thank you for helping her, and will give you a Magic Circuit of your own as a parting gift. Since the labs are now safe, Lexa will remain here and study what she can to find out more about herself, sending you on your way.
Magic Circuit = 2x C Rank Primary Spell Slot or the equivilant
Aside from normal C Rank EXP
2x C Rank Primary Spell Slot or the equivilant
Access to "Act III: Paracidium"
Lexa Grimoire's Gratitude
She set it on the table just as the ship began turning to face the east, heading towards Lavanitir Port, the home of Black Rose's Guild Hall, and pressed a finger to it. A small blue spark gave the item enough energy to power up, this time a voice playing... The voice sounded exactly like Lexa's when she was using her childish tone. "Umm... hi Nee-san... It's me, Lexa. The... other... Lexa. The one who tried to kill you... not the one who protected you... I'm sorry for what I did, but I was following dad's orders! I... I need your help with finding out who... or... what I am. I know you don't have a reason to help me, especially after what I did, but if you do I'd be eternally grateful to you." Her voice sounded confused, unsure of itself and weaker than the real Lexa's.
Lexa let out an exasperated sigh. "I left Black Rose so my friends won't get caught up in my problem..." she said with a solemn expression before reaching back over to the intercom. Her voice came in over several speakers, including a set in the helm itself. "Attention all crew, I want EBR Team 6 at the ready at 0800. We're going to the Ancient Ruins, conditions are unknown. All members sound off." A set of five voices, two female three male, said 'Aye Sir!' over the intercom. "You really enjoy making me turn this damn thing in circles don't ya cap..." a sarcastic voice cam in after them as the ship began making a massive circle to begin heading south west.
Lexa turned to Rei, folding one of her legs over the other in a lady-like position. "Since you're gonna be going for a ride along, I guess I owe you an explanation..." she said while rolling up her sleeve. "My memories are a bit iffy, but from what I've learned in the past few months... just before I left Black Rose that is, I'm not quite human... at least not anymore." Lexa's eyes grew sad, the knowledge that she is and isn't what she should be was unsettling for her. She lifted up her right hand, the sleeve of her garment rolled down to expose the full arm. It began having a circuit board pattern that was dark blue in color shining through the skin. "These are my magic circuits. When I was young I was taken from my home, me and over twenty three thousand others, and used in Magic Council funded experiments." the magic circuits stopped glowing and Lexa put her arm down. "They implanted non-human components in the others, using them as guinea pigs and disposing them when they found a component had malfunctioned. I was unit ex-zero-zero-three, the twenty thousand and third experiment. They replaced most of my muscles, my eyes, ears, nose, nails... almost everything that was organic... The only human things I have is my heart, brain, and a couple other unimportant organs. I was implanted with my magic circuits, the first person to actually accept the circuits without dying or mutating." Lexa then rested her hand over her stomach, somewhere around where her cervix was actually located. "The last experiment on me had something to do with reproduction capabilities, but as you heard it didn't go right." her hand moved away from the spot and rested on the table. "I was ordered to be terminated, but one of the scientists disagreed with that order. He ran away with me and trained me to be an assassin. He taught me to fight, to hide, to hunt..." Lexa's eyes narrowed on Rei like a predator ready to strike "...to kill."
Lexa then stood up, walking over to the window and pressing a button on a console, the shutters opening up. "Taranis took me to Black Rose to teach me the one thing he couldn't teach me on his own... How to lead, and have friends. The guild became my family, the only thing I wanted to protect. One day I found a notice to go to the Ancient Ruins where I found a laboratory, and soon after I learned what I was." Lexa turned around to face Rei again, leaning against the dashboard with her arms crossed. "Unfortunately the MC found out I was part of Black Rose. I left so they wouldn't try to attack the guild, next thing I know they tossed out a little gift to make my life that much harder." Jack walked to a filing cabinet, opening the first drawer and pulling out a piece of paper and handing it to Rei. "It's a bounty notice for Miss Grimoire." If Rei would look at it, it would read:
Alive or Dead
Crime: Theft of invaluable MC property
Reward: 500,000,000 Jewel alive, 250,000,000 Jewel dead
Must bring back the full body for confirmation'
Lexa scoffed. "Assholes... reducing me down to 'MC property' I'll fuckin' kill em all." she said with a fairly annoyed tone. "Anyhow, we'll be there tomorrow morning at 8.. Lucky you, ya get to see where I was born so to speak. Rosa's yours till this is over, if you need me she knows where I'll be." Just like that, Lexa vanished along with Lillian.
If Rei would choose to get some rest, Rose would happily walk with her to make sure she didn't get turned around in the ship. If Rei would choose to hang with Lexa, Rosa would show her to the absolute top of the ship, taking her outside to scale a 500 foot tall ladder to the very top of the tower where Lexa would be seen looking out over the front of the ship with her eyes closed as she took in the world around her in deep meditation.
