The man pulled out a large yellow envelop and put it down on the bar, sliding it to Kloria who opened it up. He leaned over slightly before glancing around, the man was a known informant for cash and was worried about being recognized. He spoke quietly to the alien. "Let me be honest mam, this is one of the oddest jobs I've handled. However I handled it. I managed to follow sources that say your target was hunted by mercenaries, and your target was last spotted in a village roughly a couple hours trip from here. She slayed them all with some weird requip magic. Scary thing is, she looks almost exactly like you." Kloria checked the documents and then grabbed a small roll of jewels out from her boot, and slid it to the man before she stood up. "This business stays private, and never happened."
Kloria slid all papers, and the photos of her twin sister away before she ran out the door, telling the bartender to put her orders on her tab. She ran out of the Tavern, and jumped into her shuttle before she set course and made her way towards the village. However the man face palmed as he realized he made a terrible mistake. "Damn, probably should've told her that the last known village her target was at came down with a terminal plague, turning whit's victims to some electric goo." The man sighed before walking out.
When Kloria arrived a short distance from the village, but her shuttle lights went red and Syba, the AI on board the shuttle automatically parked her vehicle a distance away. "Warning! High Phaz levels detected. Target Nessa Xicor not able to be tracked." Kloria was instantly confused, as Nessa should be the only source of the devilish substance in this galaxy. She looked at the levels and almost could not believe them. However Kloria assumed this was just a smoke screen. "I gotta find her before she kills those human mercenaries."
Kloria got out of her ship and ran towards the town, she instantly started running towards the village. She could sense the familiar presence of Phaz, only to see it had been running rampant in town. This was not a smoke screen. In the village and areas surrounding it plant life had died out, and blue puddles of liquid releasing sparks, and blue trails were all around the buildings still standing, while a fourth of the village was decimated. Kloria was in utter shock at the level of Phaz in the area. She looked around for a survivor, and found a man who was trying to repair his house, but his skin was pale as his veins were glowing blue, one eye blood shot and one eye was blue. Kloria approached the man cautiously. "Excuse me sir, could I talk to you for a minute?"
The man turned around to face the woman, only to utterly panic as he yelled to his townsmen. "She's back! Everyone!" Kloria tried to raise her hands defensively and spoke calmly to the man. "Look, sir, you misunderstand I am not-" Her voice got swallowed up in the shouting as people started to through things at her. She tried to speak but no one was willing to listen, and when someone came at her with a pitchfork she had no choice at this point.
She summoned her Cho-Armos as she caught the pitchfork, but her focus was broken as she had gotten shot in the shoulder from behind. That moment disrupted her focus forcing the particles coming from her to return, however she could not last long at this point, not without causing more harm. She bursted through the crowd, and hurt shots that she narrowly avoided. She knew she had no chance, she had to run. She picked up her pace after the last shot while at the same time summoning her Cho-Armos, using the boosted speed to run out of town, and after taking a long contrived route, ended up back at her ship an hour later, and fell to her knees exhausted for once. She retracted her armor before leaning up against a tree, breathing cautiously. She felt her shoulder as the bullet was still lodged in, luckily it did not get all the way through the skin.
"What the hell was that?! Syba, how could Nessa cause that, she is a class 2.6 like me." The computer responded through the com on her wrist. "Unknown. Analyzing data." Kloria took a deep breath, annoyed, and unsure of the situation.
