Re: Welcome to Psycho Pass


The bullets ricocheted from Granite’s stone form and embedded themselves into the brick of the building. He stood blocking the gunfire to make certain no one would be hurt. He frowned at the men shooting at him until the young girl called him Shi Ren. Once she told him what it meant, Granite could not help but smile a dopey grin. He had all but forgotten about the bullets bouncing off of him until the blood tendrils wrapped up the assailants that remained preventing them from continuing their would be assault. Granite’s eyes went wide as he watched the scene before him.

“Dat is cool!” he said as he watched the tendrils do their job. Meanwhile the others locked in the trash bin were still kicking and screaming trying to get out of their stinky prison. Granite looked back at the girl and smiled again. “I tink we are friends. You was so nice to me an made me smile an you gave me a nice nick name too.” Granite explained as to why he was following her. Granite always made friends easily, it was keeping them that seemed to be the issue. The Golem liked everyone, at first, until they proved themselves to be evil. He was one to always give the benefit of the doubt.

“Sides, I was bored and you look interestin’.” He continued. “So do you nice tendril man.” He said to Jeremiah who was busy controlling the tendrils to keep the men wrapped up. Granite moved back to the trash bin and unbent the ladder holding it closed and opened the lid. The men inside fell silent seeing the golem again not wanting more trouble. “Put dem in here?” Granite asked wanting Jeremiah to dump the rest of the gang bangers into the trash dumpster so he could reseal it with the ladder once again.

Re: Welcome to Psycho Pass


She almost chuckled at his simple answer.

“I look interesting…” She said and chuckled again. If only he knew how right he was. She would look to the trash can of goons and frown slightly, then look to the new arrival. His blood based magic was something she’d not seen before, and as such she’d need to keep an eye on him.

“Thanks.” She said to Jeremiah then looked by to Shi Ren.

“Friend of yours? If so you keep interesting friends with interesting abilities.” She would say and walk out of the alleyway. She would, in the back of her mind be annoyed that the two men had spoiled her trap for these gang members. She would stand at the edge of the alleyway now and look between Granite and Jeremiah.

“I’m Kellis.” She said to both of them. “A pleasure to meet you both, and thank you for the assistance.” Her Chinese accent was fairly strong so it was obvious where she grew up, at the least.

“So tell me, what is there to do in this city that’s fun?”

Re: Welcome to Psycho Pass


Jeremiah was satisfied that the immediate threat had passed and nodded to the man-of-stone with a kind smile. He watched as Granite moved and re-opened the trash bin, following his prompt by willing the tendrils to his command. The pools of blood moved across the cement, leaving no trace behind, and carried their hostages with them as they drew closer to the bin. In a few sparse moments, the tendrils were depositing the gunmen so they might join their friends.

The woman who at first appeared to be at risk but apparently never was joined them and to her appreciation, he bowed his head slightly in welcome. "Make no mention of it." Hearing her question, he looked Granite up and down and smiled with approval, never realizing for a moment that they shared an allegiance. "A... recent acquaintance. My name is Jeremiah. Jeremiah Cain, to be precise."

He took a few steps forward, following Kellis and then looked uneasily at Granite. He wasn't sure how to answer just then. "Well I suppose it might depend on what a woman such as yourself considers fun? I presume then that you are not from Gotham but was there some purpose for your coming here?"

Re: Welcome to Psycho Pass


Granite bent the ladder back around the trash bin locking the gang bangers inside. The gunfire had already alerted the police and they would find a neat little package of gang bangers locked up and waiting for them. As the three stepped out of the alley, Granite was all smiles. He had found new friends and that always made him happy. He waved to the two wearing a dopey grin on his face. “I’m Granite Quarry, nice new friend peoples.”

“Dare is all sort of stuff to do here in Got Ham.” Granite said to his new friends. He tapped a large stone finger on his stone chin and it sounded like two rocks being slammed together. He was pondering what there was to do in Gotham, at least what his new friend might like. “We could see if we can find da bat. He is around somewheres. Or dare is Amusement Mile, but we wud havta clear all da Joker guys clowns out a dare first. Hrmmm.” Granite continued pondering a few moments. “Dare is always Got Ham park, but da demons are dare.”

Every idea the rock man had he shot down himself. Granite shrugged and started to chuckle. The sound echoed from the buildings around them.

Re: Welcome to Psycho Pass


She chuckled at Shi Ren and nodded. “Gotham Park. Yes I saw that place but it looks overrun with a very rambunctious bunch.” She said and would leave the alleyway. “Well how about dinner then? Since you both saved me, the least I can do is treat you to some food? I saw a quaint looking “Chinese” food place just around the bend.

She would begin to walk, and if they followed her, the more perceptive of them would notice something strange. It felt like they were being watched… Indeed they were. There were trained Sentinel of Magic scouts observing her and she seemed to not notice, or not care in any event.

“So, that group of thugs, I take it this city is fairly dangerous? It would seem like that is the case. How people without powers, how do they get along in this world hmm?” She asked quietly as she would continue to walk.
“Because I imagine there are not always heroes such as yourselves around when it happens?” the group may ALSO notice that people are not only avoiding them, but walking around them as if they were not even there, which may seem strange for the most part.

Re: Welcome to Psycho Pass


Having clasped his hands behind his back, Jeremiah allowed Granite to present his ideas fully, smiling warmly as the man (or boy, Jeremiah wasn't sure) countered each of them on his own. His eyes were drawn back to Kellis and the offer of food.

He opened his mouth to decline, since he didn't normally require payment or reimbursement for deeds as small as the one he just committed but the questions the woman had asked made him curious. How could one not know Gotham City; even its reputation. Could it be she was not human, not of Earth? Something from another world or dimension? With his evening plans already shot, he acquiesced.

"Dinner and conversation does seem like a good idea," he agreed. "Lead the way?" He waved a hand ahead for Kellis since she knew the restaurant they would be heading to.

They were being followed; Jeremiah could sense the slight tinge of magic hanging behind like an errant, annoying smell. He would wait until it proved to be a threat or something worthwhile but in the meantime, he replied.

"Simple. There are those with powers or talents that lend their aid for those that do not. Selflessness perhaps. Or pride. But guardianship shouldn't be such a foreign notion, even if you aren't from Gotham."

Re: Welcome to Psycho Pass


Granite let a large stone smile creep across his face. “I love Chinee food! Ima get beef wit broccoli.” He said as they began to walk down the street. “Do day sell by da pound?” He asked paying no attention to people avoiding them as people often avoided him. He walked behind the other two as his girth took up most of the sidewalk. He was hungry and the thought of good food sounded perfect. A look of questioning appeared on his face as a thought crossed his mind.

“Does dis place serve da poo poo platta? Why do places serve poop? On a platta?” He asked. Granite was gullible and not quite intelligent and that fact was becoming very clear to the two who walked with him. One other thing became very clear as well. Granite had a big heart. He was the type of ‘person’ who would put himself directly in harm’s way to protect others.

As they walked down the sidewalk toward the restaurant, Granite stepped on drainage grate on the sidewalk and his immense weight caused it to cave in. His leg got stuck for a moment in the newly formed hole and his upper body teetered over from his forward momentum. He was able to prevent himself from falling with his stone hands but they left two cracked indents in the sidewalk concrete.

“Son of a…” He grumbled as he pulled his leg free of the hole causing a bit more damage to the sidewalk. If his stone skin would have allowed, he would have blushed a deep red.

Re: Welcome to Psycho Pass


She chuckled at the giant clutz of a man as they continued to walk and as Mr. Cain spoke she’d reply while rounding the corner near the restaurant. “Well true, guardianship is not a foreign concept, the same as knights and warriors, it is your job to tend to the peasants and protect them, because without the peasants there would be no need for the knight, nor would their be food to drink, clothes to wear. A old proverb I was taught long ago.” She said with a smile.

“Do not worry Shi Ren, in this restaurant you will be fine.” She pointed to the sign on the door, it read in Mandarin “Metahumans Welcome.” “That says you are welcome.” The restaurant looked small on the outside and plain. The sign simply read “Tea shop” and it felt fairly normal. But there was nothing… normal about the place.

When they entered after her, the scene would seem to shimmer, as if reality itself shuddered for only a second before they’d see a rather large establishment inside, complete with incense burning and people of all kinds sitting around and eating and drinking as the backdrop of ethnic Chinese music played in the background. The magic in the air would be fairly easy for Cain to pick up, it was illusions and reality manipulation at work. There would be tables which seemed to stretch seeming into infinity…
Two women in normal waitress uniforms walked up to the trio. They were of Asian and another of American descent with red hair.

“Welcome to the Tea shop. Please, follow us.”

“Well this is…unexpected.” She said plainly.

Re: Welcome to Psycho Pass


As Jeremiah watched and listened to the large man of granite he couldn't help but feel sorry for him; a sentiment that Quarry might not appreciate. He helped him balance as he pulled his leg free and offered a smile of kindness but largely kept his comments to himself.

Kellis' proverb, how4ever apt, seemed dated. That made him wonder about the 'young' woman's age but again he kept his observations to himself. Her smile was innocent enough but he warned himself about taking it at face value as it may have been a weapon and she had already demonstrate that was quite... capable.

He stepped through the 'portal' of sorts behind the others and took in the sights, sounds and smells of the place. There was something behind the obvious glsmour of soybean paste, fried oil and incense.


“Well this is…unexpected.” He heard Kellis declare.

"And deserving caution," Jeremiah added. "Perhaps if there is a rune or sigil identifying this place, I might find myself at ease." He studied the walls and tapestries and then locked gazes with the woman in their party. "Until then, I will be on guard," and he reached into his belt to palm two vials which promptly seemed to vanish in his suit jacket's sleeve.

Re: Welcome to Psycho Pass


Granite smiled at Jeremiah’s help out of the hole. “Tanks.” He said in his deep voice. Granite did not know from sigils, but if his friend was on guard he would be as well. He looked around as they entered but started to feel right at home quickly enough. The place seemed to stretch on forever and the amount of food being dealt out was astonishing. His stone stomach grumbled and the fifteen hundred pound plus man was almost following the scent of good food by floating on air like a cartoon character from Warner Brothers. “Dat smells… YUMMY!” He exclaimed. For a moment the entire area stopped and turned to look at Granite. “Sowwy, go back to ya food.” He said with a bashful look on his stone face.

Granite was thrilled to be here with his new friends and the food smelled so good he was ready to sit and order. They were led to a table where a rather large stone chair was at one end. The chair was perfect and Granite was easily able to fit on it. This place seemed too good to be true. They even had a chair that would fit the stone golem and that made him even more happy. “Tank you both for hangin’ wit me.” Granite smiled that dopey grin and picked up his menu.
