Mollusc had been looking for answers so far Namek and Earth had no answers. He thought a place that would give him an answer would be Arosce. One of the most important decisions in his life. Where he decided to fully forsake his friendship with Ramen and fight Against the Kingdom. Perhaps that why he was returned to life? That event was quite important maybe he was suppose to change something. So he came back looking for answers on the cold planet but he only saw his former enemies faces. It had taken a long time to realize but the WTF was no longer the same beasts it had been. It was no longer a massive shadow looming over now they were about to face the same truths the Kingdom did nearly two years ago. That without power you hold nothing in this world. Mollusc would keep walking keeping his sense up. He was hoping he'd run into someone who could tell him more about the current state of Arosce. In his mind that would give him some clues on what he was suppose to be looking for on this planet of if it was just better to leave and forget about the past. Powerlevel:114,000
Ochra had wandered around the frozen wastes of Arcose for so long, he had long since lost track of where he was. Not that he was keeping track of where he was really. As far as he was concerned, getting lost here was his entire point. to be as far away from people as possible, for when the inevitable happened.
Unfortunately, there are times when you wander near a place you didn't want to go to. In this case, he found himself near the city of Froz. Fortunately, a city was much easier to spot from a distance than other places. But the fact that he was near enough to see it bothered him. He didn't want to be anywhere near civilization.
But as he turned to walk away, he paused. He could sense something not far off. A power he had felt before, back on Namek. He wasn't exactly happy to encounter this individual again, but right now he was more curious as to just what this power was doing here? that moment of curiosity prevented him from leaving just yet.
Mollusc walked around for some time not finding much until his sensed leaped to life. Mollusc turned his head looking around.l The Power he sensed was nearly as strong as his own. Yet he didn't know off the top of his head who it could be? Maybe it was one of Arosce top men. He didn't suppress his ki at all they would be curious to see who was walking around with such strength. Especially after being attacked by the Saiyan Kingdom, they would be on guard. He decided to walk towards the power to see what they wanted. AS he got closer he began to sense who he was walking towards. He had felt the power back on Namek and while it took some time he could never forget the powers that surrounded him as death was coming towards him. It was Ochra. The Saiyan warrior had watched him fight and die to Kayen in the past before. "I see you're exploring the universe as well." Why else would Orcha be here? What could the Saiyan warrior want in the enemy territory? Was he also here to continue the attacks of the Arosce. Or did he had some sort of other goals. Guess he'd only know if Orcha decided to say anything.

Indeed, Ochra's surprise didn't abate when his senses were indeed confirmed. The Namekian ghost known as Mollusc, here on Arcose. He didn't have much trouble finding him, since Ochra never really bothered to hide his power level. He really should start looking into that. It would make things much easier for him. But right now, he had to deal with the ghost. Their last encounter wasn't exactly the best. He found the ghost to be a bit high and mighty for Ochra's taste, especially for someone who ran head first into death without thinking. He seemed to be under the assumption that Ochra had come here to travel the galaxy. Granted, Ochra was not in the best state right now. His mechanical leg was missing, and he looked like he had been out in this cold for some time.
"Not quite," Ochra replied, hoping that would at least clear up the misunderstanding. But that still left his own question about Mollusc unanswered. "I must admit though, I'm curious to know why you're all the way out here."
Mollusc looked over to see that Orcha was missing his metal leg. He wondered what had happened to Ochra? Clearly, he was not in the best state. Something bad really had happened to him. Mollusc looked down at Ochra before sitting down to be near him. "You don't look good yourself. I'd say that you're about to be the new me." Mollusc grinned lightly. "To answer your own question I am looking for answers." Mollusc mused. "I was accepting of my death against Kayen. I was willing to stay dead and just rest in Heaven. Yet something or someone made me come back. Whatever force didn't tell me why nor give me a purpose. I had driven when I fought Kayen that what I need to live or die. Now I don't have a direction I'm merely floating around. So I decided to go to every planet I been too that had great importance in my life. Maybe there is something in my life that I need to finish. A chapter that never got resolved. Perhaps I'll just learn more about myself. So what happened to you. You're strong you shouldn't be getting beaten up so easily. Someone do this to you?" Mollusc asked looking around to see what he could use to help Ochra.

Ochra listened quietly as Mollusc explained himself. So, he was looking for a reason as to why he was brought back as a ghost. Ochra had never really thought about why he had come back as a ghost. Guess it wasn't just a case of haunting Kayen from beyond the grave. Ochra gave a small shrug. "Maybe it's not about what business you haven't finished," Ochra replied, "Maybe someone on high felt you had more potential, felt it was a waste for you to die the way you did. Felt there was still much more for you to do." It was certainly a thought. "Maybe not focus so much on why you're still here, and more think, what are you going to do now that you're here?"
Then came the questions about him. "I came here...to be away from everyone. There's...something wrong with me. Something dangerous. And I wanted to be as far away from everyone and everything I care about as a result. As for this..." he looked over himself, "Let's just say even sticking to the wastes hasn't sat well with some of the Fleet. Not enough to kill me, but enough to try and attack me anyway."
Ochra gave his own spin on why he came back. Maybe someone thought he could do so much more alive than being dead. It was a comforting thought but one he thought was wrong. He had only caused trouble being alive he doubts that would change with him being alive. Still, it was possible this was what was going on. "Focus on what I can do now not why I was brought back," Mollusc said repeating in his own words Ochra sentiment. He had to admit that was some wise advice. Perhaps he had been too focused on knowing a reason rather than just doing what he thought was for the best. "I guess I'll try to live closer to those words." Mollusc gave a nod of thanks to Ochra.
Yet now it was a focus on Ochra issues and he had one indeed. He talked about how there was something dangerous about him. Something deep inside him that made him worry about being close to other people. "You're a strong Saiyan." Mollusc mused. "Not as strong as Kayen or Vocado but you're close to their level. Yet your, not a Super Saiyan maybe your body is ready to accept that power but you've not hit the damn. You've not hit the point where your body will accept such power. That was what happened with me and my Super Namek form. I felt the power coming for some time but it took a long time before I could unlock it and use it in combat." Mollusc sighed looking back at Ochra with a frown. "As for this one to attack you they got a name. I can pay them back for you." Mollusc cracked his neck. He may have not liked Ochra but he had given him some good advice. It was the least he could do.

Well, at least Mollusc was taking some of his advice on what to do. Indeed, Ochra felt it had been a bit of a waste, Mollusc essentially throwing his life away like he had. He had a great deal of power. Just imagine the good one could do with it if he put his mind to it. Imagine the good everyone could do. This galaxy certainly needs its share of good, especially at this time.
He listened to Mollusc's explanation, what he believed what might have been happening. He wasn't too far off the mark. At least, what Ochra believed it to be. But he was wrong. Not entirely wrong, but in certain aspects. Ochra shook his head remorsefully. "I don't believe it's a matter of physically being able to handle the power," Ochra replied, "More...mentally." He took a small sigh. "A Super Saiyan's transformation, at least, the initial one, requires an intense burst of emotion. One to break the threshold and push a Saiyan to that level. But with me...All my life I've made it a point to control my emotions. I could afford myself to fly off the handle. I couldn't afford to cause any damage or lose my cool. Any anger, any strong emotion, I push down. Push it away and let it fade." He tilted his head in thought. "Think of it like, as you said, a damn. It would take less to break a wooden damn, compared to one made of concrete." Ochra then tapped his head. "I would say mine, would be more comparable to steel. Now, how much pressure would it take to break that damn?"
He then found his eyes falling to the ground, "And more importantly, what would happen when it breaks?" He looked back at Mollusc. "That's why I need to be away from everyone. I can feel the pressure building. And no matter how much I try, I can't stop it from growing. I don't want to hurt anyone because I lose control."
Ochra seemed to think it was a mental issue. He knew physically he could get there just he was unsure what would happen if he became Super Saiyan. How he'd handle the power in his mind. He made a good point that it took a burst of emotions. How to break the threshold between the power of a Saiyan and a super Saiyan was not something one could do so easily. He explained how he always used to have control of his emotions and all his emotions he pushed them down. He'd let all his feelings of anger and other powerful emotions that could compromise himself be pushed away. Mollusc was no doctor but that didn't sound healthy. One had to be willing to express themselves and feel their emotions without hiding them.
He posed a good question of what would happen when the damn breaks. Would he lose all control of himself and do something bad to someone he cares about. Or maybe he'd just never come back and be a complete fiend. Mollusc let in a deep sigh. "I can't say exactly what you can do. You have to eventually let it go. One day it will release your power. You can't just wait for its release you can't hold back forever. You just need to find a safe place to do it and someone that is willing to help you and is willing to help you that is strong enough to handle your super Saiyan power." Mollusc suggested as he sighed. "I wish I could be the one but I doubt I can handle you if you became a super Saiyan." In his life state, he'd be able too but now he'd barely be able to hang on.

Find someone who could handle the power when he finally burst. That did sound like an interesting proposal. The main problem was making sure nobody else got hurt in the meantime. He let out a small sigh. "I wish it could be as simple letting it go. I've been doing this for so long, it's basically on automatic now. I've tried meditation, I've tried venting my frustration, but nothing works. The anger keeps building, and my mind's doing everything it can to keep it down. I feel like I've lost complete control over the situation." He shook his head, hints of frustration over his situation already showing through. "I was even attacked by a group of Fleet goons not too long ago. I lost myself. Before I knew it, I had killed all of them, all in a fit of rage." he took a deep breath. "I believe it's best if I just avoid everyone. And heck, if this cruel terrain ends up taking my life before that happens, well, that just saves everyone a lot of grief, doesn't it?"
When he mentioned being unable to handle him if he turned into a Super Saiyan, Ochra gave a small, rueful chuckle. "Guess that's an advantage of being dead. You don't need to worry about dying again."
Mollusc listened to Orcha who seemed quite sure it was not that simple. He could not just let all the feelings buried inside him burst to life ready to consume him. He explained that a bit ago he had lost control of his anger when he killed a group of the WTF soldiers. While they were the foe he could understand Orcha fears a bit more. What if he did that why near his friends or allies. He could hurt them badly. Not to mention maybe in that rage his power was that of the Super Saiyan. He had not been there to confirm that but all he was that Orcha had some reason to fear the power that dwelled deep inside him. Yet, Mollusc also knew that hiding from the truth would not be good for him. Mollusc had done that most of his life and he ended up in the ground. When Orcha mentioned the benefits of being dead Mollusc nodded. "Yes I don't fear death anymore and you should not fear yourself. It is not good for you. You need to let it out at some point. If you need it too can always use me. I can take your power right now without trouble." Mollusc grinned.

Ochra took a deep breath. It was easy to simply be told that he shouldn't fear himself. But it was something he couldn't easily do. He felt the anger boiling within him, threatening to burst out. "A fact that's easier said than done, I'm afraid," Ochra replied, looking at the ghostly Namekian, "I feel it's best if I remain here. If I find myself able to control it, that's good. But I don't want to put anyone at risk if things go south." When Mollusc offered to help him vent out his frustration, Ochra shook his head. "I thank you for the offer, but I've found that simply fighting hasn't been doing anything to help. Still, thank you."
He could see that Ochra didn't want that help. His reasons he still didn't agree with. Letting it boil until you lost control would not be for the best either. Guess he could not do much for the Saiyan if he didn't want his help. Mollusc sighed. "Well if you stay on Arosce you will most likely catch trouble from the WTF. You are a member of the Kingdom afterall." Mollusc assumed he was from the Kingdom seeing as he watched the battle between him and Kayen. Then that gave him a thought. He had been looking for why he was returned and only two people had seen him die. Maybe something happened before he died that ORcha and Kayen may of saw. He could never ask Kayen out of pride but also the real chance she'd just laugh at him or beat him down agian. "So I might as well ask. When I died did anything odd happen or was it just normal. Maybe that can give me answers." He doubts Orcha saw anything out of the ordinary but maybe his insight could lead him in the direction he needed to go.

"I'm aware of that," Ochra replied, "I've already had enough Fleet people pay me a visit, even out here in this wasteland." First Kraktus, then Aizu, and then that group of aliens. It seems that the people wanting him dead didn't seem to stop. Hell, a part of him almost expected Kayen to turn up and try to kill him. It certainly wouldn't be surprising. It seemed like the list of allies he did have was depressingly small, and certainly nobody would miss him if he perished here. Would anyone even be aware he was gone? It was a sobering thought, and one Ochra didn't want to dwell on.
And then, Mollusc changed topics, asking about what had happened in regards to his death at the hands of Kayen. The bounty hunter blinked, trying to remember back to the confrontation between the two of them. Really, it had seemed like a standard fight. Mollusc was hard headed, Kayen was ruthless, nothing really out of the ordinary. "In all honesty, I can't think of anything unusual about your death. Kayen's attack pretty much reduced your body to ash, and that was the end of it." That part he remembered. He remembered Mollusc taking his death with dignity, and that had been it. No following words or nothing. Kayen just left, like the fight had meant nothing to her.
"Yes I know you told me but you should get out of here before they really hurt you or worse kill you," Mollusc explained. Mollusc would not want to see the Saiyan die because he didn't want to hurt anyone out of the anger he had little control over at this point. Mollusc looked at Orcha as he spoke of his death. He was hoping for something big as he explained that his body was turned to ash and that was that. Nothing special happened. Mollusc rubbed his chin. He supposes that may explain why he was in a ghostly form and looked different. Maybe when he was returned for whatever reason with no body he just became what he believed himself inside. More close to a dragon-like Porunga or Shenron. Yet that caused him to think of another question why would he want to be like that. He had forsaken his vows to Porunga. He rubbed his head trying to think this all out but nothing satisfied him. "That was worth the shot." Mollusc sighed. "I had one of my questions answered but it also leads to more questions guess it is not the worst."
