- Job Info:
“Kameyama, isn’t it?” One of the desk workers at the central office had contacted Kameyama through Optix, his personal iLac. As he rode through town he spoke through the headset designed by his apprentice, Mizuki. It allowed him to keep his attention on the road while the two of them traveled towards their destination.
“Yes, sir.” Kameyama responded, “How can I be of assistance?” He made a quick gesture towards Mizuki to pull over. Whenever the Rune Knights contacted him it usually meant a change of direction. As they headed towards the side of the road, he turned a small fraction of his attention back to the communication.
“We’ve got a job for you. With your recently gained skillset you should be able to handle it reasonably well. Are you aware of Heaven’s Wrath?”
“Comes down quickly and without mercy, sure.” Kameyama responded, a little too quickly. “Or are you talking about something less literal?”
“It’s the name of a guild, actually.” The central office worker said, “A self-proclaimed dark guild that has tried a few times to take over the central government of Fiore.”
“And we need to bring them in?” Kameyama frowned slightly. This wasn’t the type of mission he would want to bring Mizuki on, but he’d left her out of guild jobs recently, and he could only do it so many times. By now the two of them had pulled over and he was sitting on his makeshift motorcycle with her looking inquisitively towards him. Within a few moments she’d gotten bored and pulled from her pack a small device of some sort.
“Not quite. To make a long story short, they’ve acquired a massive mechanical suit called The Tesseract. This thing was designed to hold off entire naval fleets. Some reports say it could be powerful enough to bring an entire country to heel. If this thing gets to the Royal Castle, it’s game over.”
“And you want me to…?”
“Take it down. This thing needs to be neutralized, but it remains a very valuable asset for its company. Therefore it must be disabled, but not destroyed.”
“This thing might present an end to Fiore as we know it, and the company’s worried about their assets?” Kameyama said, with mild disgust. He knew that money made the world go ‘round but surely there was a limit?
“Be that as it may, those are your orders. You’ve got until it leaves the Canyon to complete the job. The higher ups feel that with your metal magic, you may be able to disable it or something.”
“Or something.” Kameyama repeated. “I hope you know that I use raw metal. Technology isn’t really my strong point. If you needed it destroyed, I could likely infiltrate it and overload it from within, but shutting it down somehow is a little beyond my ability.”
“Don’t worry, you’ll have back up. Since this isn’t something we want getting around, we’re sending in a pair of Spec Ops agents. Do you remember Agent Stern?”
