CHROMO'S PL: 1,950,000 (x13P | 150k BASE)
Chromo, for once in his life, was a skeptic. Magical wish-granting orbs that could summon a giant dragon that had infinite power? It sounded like something straight out of Dungeons and Dragon Balls— probably because it was. But here he was, off his home of Earth for the very first time in a desperate pursuit of the miracle-orbs based off the vague information about them he'd found in the remaining data from CURE. But what did he even plan to wish for...?
...A lifetime supply of Hetap. Clearly. And nothing else whatsoever, definitely.
The small ship he'd salvaged from CURE's ruins was filled to the brim with beetles. Chromo managed to cram his entire swarm in the trunk and storage compartments, curling himself up in the cramped pilot's seat. The leather chair was slightly chewed, dusty and scratched. The ship only occasionally made weird machinery-noises that made Chromo fear it'd spontaneously explode- but so far, so good. Space was very pretty. He'd passed by stars, asteroids, and wispy nebulas on his way to the green planet. He just hoped the old ship's autopilot was right...
Lo and behold, an emerald glimmer shone near the three suns his ship passed- Namek! Finally! Chromo pressed his face to the fogged glass, whistling in awe. For the first time in weeks, he felt a glimmer of hope. Maybe he could make things better here...
His burst of optimism, however, was brief. Alarms buzzed, flashes of red light from emergency signals snapped Chromo's attention back to the machine. Lines upon lines of code and messages he wasn't nearly smart enough to read flashed on the screen beside him. Before he could button-mash to try and fix whatever was wrong, though, the flashing lights darkened. Fire began to surround the spaceship's nose as it dipped down towards Namek with no fuel left to assure a safe landing.
Soon enough, Chromo felt himself lifted from his seat as the spacepod plummeted to the planet below. He couldn't see through the clouds well, but below was what looked like a bunch of very sharp rocks... Wasting no time, Chromo was quick to bash and headbutt the glass, soaring out of the ship with his swarm in tow before the vessel slammed into the earth, forming a dense, firey crater.
Chromo's power peaked in a flash as he opened his wings, surrounding his body in ki before hitting the planet's surface, body curled into a protective ball. Across the wasteland, plenty of more equally dizzy beetles had been scattered about from the landing- but Chromo's power reigned high above that of his clones. The blazing sphere bounced across the rocks before skidding to a halt. "uUUuuUughk..." Chromo uncurled and flopped onto his side. He tried to stand up, but would fumble about in a dizzy fit before rolling onto his back. His eyes swirled about in a daze. "Hello, Namek..." He groggily mumbled, looking up to the swirling green skies and three suns above.
...Chromo didn't really plan to get this far already. What was the next step in his plan again?
He was too dizzy to think straight. Something about Dragon... cubes? Something like that?
The woozy beetle mumbled to himself again, still far too dizzy to stand upright. He was supremely powerful- a once-ruthless murderer and capable fighter in battle. But that didn't change the fact that he looked completely helpless at the moment, regardless of how much power he now held- power that might be bound to attract attention soon enough.
