It was early evening, and the citizens of Ginger Town were peaceful going about their business. Entirely unaware that high in the sky above was a group of individuals with sinister intentions.
Scallio had gathered the bulk of his crew above the quaint little town. He locked eyes with each one of them. A serious expression on his face as his gaze moved from person to person. "This," he began, "is perhaps the most dangerous contract we've had to date." the saiyan looked to the town below. "I know some of you find that hard to believe. After all, it's Earth, they don't exactly have a galactic reputation for powerful fighters. And you're more than welcome to go into this thinking that, but know that it could prove to be a fatal mistake." he warned, looking up from the town and back towards his men. Their faces were conflicted and confused, but confident nonetheless.
The mercenary had yet to inform his men of the details of the contract. One that had been in the works for at least a month now. He couldn't afford one of them having loose lips and ruining the entire operation. Scallio frowned, "Our task, the one we're being paid an obscene amount of Zeni to do, is to reduce Ginger Town to rubble." it grew silent, and Scallio let his words linger in the minds of his men. Allowed the reality of the situation to sink in for them before he continued to speak. "Understand, we're not doing this on the orders of the Kingdom. We are acting alone and thus we have only ourselves to rely on should we encounter trouble. And I highly expect for us to encounter trouble. Do I make myself clear?" his men nodded and Scallio turned away from them.
Narissa, who had been positioned at Scallio's side floated in front of the mercenary leader. "Scallio," gently, she placed her hand on his chest. "I have told you that I think this is a mistake haven't I?"
"Several times," he pushed her hand from his chest, "but it's my mistake to make. I'm not forcing you to be here, to stand by me, and I'm not going to judge you if you leave either Narissa. But I am going through with this."
"There's nothing I can say to change your mind is there?"
"No, but we both know that you already knew that."
"Yeah, but it doesn't hurt to ask." the heran sighed, "I'm not going anywhere Scallio, at least not right now. After this? I-I don't know." Narissa averted her gaze, looking down towards the town. "I just know that I can't watch you make choices like this much longer. Not when we have..." she didn't finish but instead floated up and away from the mercenary.
Scallio frowned, clearly aware of how her sentence was going to end. His expression quickly hardened, however, and he focused once more on the task at hand. "Let's get this over with." he muttered, looking directly at Narissa with a stare he knew she'd recognize.
Somewhat reluctantly, the heran began to press at the buttons for the device mounted on her wrist. It buzzed to life and with a surge of her own energy she'd created a ball of condensed blutz energy. She tossed it upward, triggering it with a pulse of power that bathed Scallio in blutz waves. The saiyan's body swiftly began its transformation into an Oozaru. Once complete, his gargantuan form descended upon Ginger Town, his men following behind him.
Scallio touched down crushing several buildings beneath his feet and causing the ground to quake. Panic quickly ensued amongst the citizens at the appearance of the Great Ape. They flocked towards the exit of the town, desperate to escape the impending destruction. Scallio made no attempts to stop them either, instead, he went to work leveling the buildings within the town. The mercenaries men, on the other hand, showed the civilians of Ginger Town no such mercy. Ki streaked across the streets and screams of despair filled the air.
The population of Ginger Town had quickly begun to drop.
Scallio is attempting to reduce Ginger Town to rumble! If no one attempts to stop him within 72 hours Ginger Town will be replaced with a new board: Ginger Town Ruins.
Narissa used [SIG] Power Ball and 1 KP to boost its effect.
Scallio transformed into an Oozaru! His PL has been increased by x6/x5 making his Power Level 420,000/350,000.

It had started out such a peaceful morning as well. Hunting, eating, a nice day off for Ochra. But, the issue with having the ability to sense energy, is that when somebody does something like, say, turn into an Oozaru in the middle of a populated area and start firing off energy blasts everywhere, you tend to notice it. And when you're Ochra, you have a moral obligation to step in and put a stop to it.
And that was how Ochra ended up shooting off towards Ginger Town at top speed. The closer he got to the city, the more the sinking feeling in his stomach that innocent people were getting hurt or worse grew stronger. Why would anybody do this? As he came into view of the city, he could almost hear the screams of the people being gunned down. But, most importantly, he could see the massive form of the Oozaru stomping through the city. He could see the armor it wore, and recognition instantly clicked in his mind.
That placed the others as members of the Crimson Apes, Scallio's mercenary unit. Anger boiled inside of Ochra. Was he seriously doing this? Why was he destroying a city full of innocent people. The man was a mercenary, and he had the feeling he wasn't doing this just for the hell of it. Well, if Ochra had to beat the information out of him, he would.
Ochra flew up into the middle of the city, letting out a low growl before letting off a burst of energy. That should be enough to get everyone's attention. He slowly turned his attention towards the Oozaru, fuming as he floated there. "Mind telling me what the damn hell you think you're doing?" he snarled.

| Kayen |
“Kaaaaayennnn” Clear concern was in Barbs voice as she called for the Queen which immedietly got her attention, for the most part Barb had lost a lot of her nervousness around the ‘danger’ present on the ship itself which generally left it so that if something was off with her there was a very good reason for it, something worth paying attention to.
“Whats wrong?” Kayen responded instantly searching the Stormbreaker’s general area for any high power signatures, most specifically any FAMILIAR ones such as Sensoa’s especially in proximity to any other familiar power signatures. She had no intention of allowing the Demon another chance to take someone from her but her search yielded no results.
“Something seems to be up in one of Earth’s larger towns, its uh… I think Scallio’s group might be on the attack? Unless there’s something going on that just is making it SEEM that way, but Scallio’s definetly present and transformed” Kayen growled in annoyance and was immedietly up, scouter now affixed to her and Fateburn strapped to her back as her hands clenched into fists.
“Keep me updated if anything else goes on while I handle this.” Kayen said as she exited the room and made her way to the exit not waiting for any further clarifications as she made a quick exit from the ship. “Small update, Ochra’s power signature just arrived on scene but I have no real way to tell his involvement, based on his history I doubt hes causing any problems though.”
Kayen gave no response to Barb instead just sighing as she powered up and took off from the side of the ship expanding her senses to pick up Scallio’s signature and zeroing in on it like a missile.
With the speed afforded by her transformed power it took no time to cross the distance to Ginger Town
“You better have a DAMN good explanation for this Scallio” Kayen said as she arrived a hard glare affixed to the leader of the Crimson Apes as golden energy surged around her, she paid Ochra little mind as she noted he seemed just as Barb had assumed to be in opposition to whatever was going on.

Bloom was actually enjoying her vacation. Mumbo had gone off for one in the Demon Realm along with most of the other goons. Dosu was somewhere. Hell if Bloom knew where though. The tsundere. So, for lack of better options, Bloom had decided to visit home. She was sitting at the dinner table with some of her siblings crawling on top of her while she shoveled… what did Mom make…? Looked like some sort of super sweet cobbler. Shoveling another spoonful into her mouth, it seemed like this was going to be a nice peaceful evening in Ginger Town. Or so she thought.
She sensed it before she saw it. Several pretty powerful energy signatures were descending into the town. She felt what seemed like an earthquake and heard screams coming from outside. The front door burst open to admit a Saiyan who pointed a Ki blast at the first thing he saw, which happened to be one of Bloom’s siblings. Unfortunately for him, he didn’t really get a chance to act on that impulse because his head was gone in the next moment followed swiftly by the rest of his body and Bloom. She flew through the open door and out onto the street with the dead Saiyan’s head in her hand.
What she saw only confirmed her suspicions that something was amiss. A great ape was rampaging in her town and some other lackies were going about, shooting down civilians. Damn. Why was her family just a magnet for this kind of trouble? What a drag. Another one of the Saiyan goons noticed her and made a move to head her way, but Bloom just lobbed the head at him to knock him out. She turned back to her family in the house and gestured for them to stay put.
“Stay away from doors and windows, alright…?”
With that, Bloom launched herself up onto the roof of their little house, perching on top like a gargoyle. There were some freshly arrived strong people. Also Saiyans. What was this? Some kind of falling out? Well, she wasn’t sure how much this involved her. She was just going to beat anyone who got too close to her parent’s place. She wasn’t about to let them die again. Still, couldn’t hurt to let the people know.
“Hey…! If that monkey man doesn’t stop messing up my town, I’m gonna kill him…! Just a heads up… so if he’s yours could you take him and get him outta here already…?”

Just as he'd expected, trouble had found them. What he hadn't counted on was it finding them so quickly. Scallio had just clotheslined through several buildings when Ochra arrived on the scene. A tiny speck in Scallio's line of sight, the recent super saiyan demanded answers. Scallio groaned, "What's it look like Ochra?" he replied sarcastically, kicking through another building as he made his way closer. "I've been paid to give Ginger Town a makeover." his eyes narrowed on the saiyan. "Are you here to stop me or something? Because I find that hilarious given, well..." he glanced towards the side, "your tantrum on Namek." mouthing off to someone more powerful than him probably wasn't the best idea. But he wasn't afraid of Ochra, nor anyone else that may show up to stop him.
Of course, the one person who stood a chance at preventing any further destruction did arrive. "Kayen, what are you doing here?" Scallio looked genuinely surprised by Kayen's sudden appearance.
Relief flashed across Narissa's face, however, and the heran quickly dashed towards her. "Thank god, maybe you can talk some sense into Kayen." she said with a huff, "Because no, he doesn't have a good reason." she admitted, motioning towards Scallio's gargantuan form with her arm. "Go on Scallio, tell the mighty queen why you're destroying a town." she demanded.
Scallio gritted his teeth, "It's like I told Ochra, we're being paid for the destruction of Ginger Town." and handsomely might he add, "I am a mercenary after all." a lot had changed with him but that certainly hadn't. "Don't tell me you actually care about this place? I mean, seriously? It's a nowhere town, in the middle of nowhere space, entirely insignificant." was there more going on behind the scenes he wasn't aware of? Perhaps, but it didn't appear as though Scallio was showing any signs of stopping.
"Now if you'll both excuse me, I have a town to destroy."

Well, of all the people to show up, OChra certainly hadn't expected Kayen to appear. More specifically, he hadn't expected her to show up in opposition of Scallio. Well, that at least ruled out her being behind all of it, and another point toward her being a decent ruler (a concept Ochra was slowly finding himself accepting more and more). Not only that, but a pale majin appeared as well, stating her intent to kill him if they didn't stop him. Honestly, Ochra was a little surprised that they simply didn't beat him into the floor on sight. Lord knows the Oozaru deserved it.
And yet, with all this overwhelming force against him, Scallio's attitude didn't change at all. Hell, his first reaction was to mouth off to him, bringing up the incident on Namek. The incident where Ochra completely lost it and transformed. If Ochra remembered correctly, Scallio had been there. "Yes, indeed. I do recall during that incident, I almost punched a hole straight through Sensoa's torso," Ochra replied, his voice level, but underlined with all the anger he was going to let out on him, "While you sat by the sidelines taking cheap shots like a cowards." Energy started to crackle around Ochra as his power started to climb. "So, I'm fairly certain you're aware..." There was a mighty burst of energy, Ochra's form growing larger, muscles bulging as his hair turned a brilliant gold. "...of what I can do to you."
Two Super Saiyans and a powerful majin. Most people would have the common sense to, you know, STOP trying to destroy a town. And yet, Scallio just blew them off, getting ready to continue his destruction. Was he suicidal? Did someone hit him in the head too hard? Honestly, it was kind of shocking someone would be THAT audacious.
"Oh no you don't!" Ochra growled, suddenly moving faster than anyone could react. Now, Ochra was more than aware that a warrior like Scallio would have long trained the weakness of his tail out of him. But that wasn't what Ochra intended. As he grabbed hold of the gigantic ape's tail, he started to move upward. When you're capable of demolishing entire planets, something as simple as lifting up an Oozaru shouldn't be that hard.
And that's what he intended to do. Gripping hold of Scallio's tail, he moved upward, intent on lifting the mercenary off of his feet and leave him hanging there.

Dozens of lives were taken over the span of mere moments. Fire and smoke raged across the town, spreading death and tragedy. The people of Ginger Town cried out for help, and while many had already arrived onto the scene, the mercenaries hadn't yet realized the weight of their sins. As the Saiyans squabbled, innocents continued to die. A great power rumbled in the far distance, approaching at a terrifyingly fast pace. It was almost as if the mercenaries had angered something grand, something beyond mortal life. It howled in the far distance, shrieking darkly as a blinding light grew ever-larger.
The Crimson Apes had angered the gods with their transgression. And they were furious.
The searing light darted past the town, leaving a shining ray in it's wake as it passed through several mercenaries. Frozen in profound terror, they each gazed down to see blood trickle down the slightest of cuts. Before they knew it, the wounds tore themselves open. Torsos were cast from their lower bodies in showers of blood, accompanied by the bone-chilling screams of the now-perished.
From the very sky, that same light came crashing down onto the Earth, landing in the midst of the Town where the people of importance had gathered. A figure stepped from the smoke-filled crater her landing had created, an all-too-familiar sight for Scallio. Aida's eyes were glued onto the mohawked Oozaru as she made her presence known, her body littered with bandages and residual burn wounds from her fated encounter with Sensoa. The weapon in her hand was burning bright with Demonic Ki, which roared around the weapon in a dark, dense aura. Moringa's breath echoed from the scythe, low and raspy. He hungered for another chance to rend the Saiyan mercenary.
''Who else could it have been but you.'' Aida hissed under her breath, eyes lowering in pure disgust.
Suddenly, a large and muscular figure came running at the Shinjin with a reered fist, roaring wildly as it charged toward Aida. The Shinjin lashed out at him with her scythe, slicing through the Saiyan as if he were nothing. Her eyes remained locked onto Scallio as the Saiyan mercenary dropped dead to the floor, his blood pooling under Aida's feet.
''Was Knutts not enough for you, Scallio?'' The Shinjin sneered. ''Sowing death and tragedy among these innocents...Is destruction all you can bring with you!?'' Aida's glare hardened, her tone judgemental. The young Kai had already made up her mind on the questions she asked.
She looked around to see two other faces she recognized well. Ochra, who she had recently met. And Kayen, the Queen of all Saiyans. Aida casted a displeased look at the Saiyan Queen. ''I have no interest in fighting you again, Kayen. Scallio and his men must pay for their actions!'' She shouted sternly, lowering her stance as she readied her weapon in advance.
Moringa chuckled loudly from within his prison. ''My apologies Queen, But we have a grudge to settle with your pathetic little pawn...!'' His voice echoed out. Their combined aura swirled around the duo in anticipation. Once more, Aida's eyes lowered onto the Oozaru.
''Yes...This is personal.''
Aida and Moringa have come to serve divine justice! Moringa's Base PL: 86,600 | Current PL: 433,000 (x4P + +x1 from Sacred Flute) Aida's PL: 100
Things were rather predictably devolving quickly, a local majin with power far below her claims made her way into the general area of the potential brawl addressing Kayen herself and earning a brief look from the Queen “If anyone’s doing any killing it’ll be me. If someone stops acting like a fool though that won’t be an issue.” Kayen said before turning her attention back onto the proceedings with Scallio poking fun at Ochra over… something about Namek? As much as Kayen enjoyed a good bit of taking shots at the hunter now was definitely NOT the time, especially for someone in Scallio’s position of power, the Oozaru form was strong, but nowhere near Super Saiyan. Scallio would likely need a base level of power FAR beyond what seemed to be the break point for Super Saiyan to rival Ochra’s current strength.
“What I’m doing here depends VERY heavily on what YOU do next. Because there's a damn good chance if you don’t cut this shit out I’m going to put my sword through your head” Kayen growled out the threat at Scallio her glare making it clear this was not just some joking threat but a completely genuine one, a far cry from the Queens usual treatment of Scallio.
“You may be a mercenary but you ALSO serve under my Kingdom, you wanted to have your crew officially rejoin and asked me yourself. Which means you should not be taking work that puts you directly at odds with ME. Maybe you didn’t get the message and if that’s the case this DOES NOT have to end with me stabbing you, but Earth and the Kingdom are under each others mutual protection, Carro made a temporary agreement until we could work things out in a more broad sense. So your dumb ass attacking this town not only puts you against ME it’s putting my work in danger” another glare was directed Scallios way as Kayen paused.
Ochra made a move to strike or perhaps grab at Scallio only to find his path blocked by the Queen taking the impact of his rush at Scallio and finding herself physically shoved back by the hunter’s new strength “Cool your jets, hes one of mine. I don't care what grudge you have against him, if he's not going to follow my lead I’M the one dealing with it.”
As she leveled her statement at Ochra ANOTHER new arrival appeared on the scene, Kayen raised an eyebrow at the strange figure, they appeared to already know Scallio quite well and were things less problematic for her she would have found it amusing how much of a reputation he was building for himself.
When they addressed HER in a manner that indicated they should be familiar Kayen raised an eyebrow until suddenly the woman’s weapon began talking and it all clicked for her, the Shinjin girl and the talking scythe, she’d planned to get some information out of her on the Afterlife when the wild god tried to kill her but she’d somehow escaped the Stormbreaker without even unlocking her room.
“Oh its.. You.. I don't really give a shit what problems you have with Scallio, this is just as ‘personal’ for me so get to the back of the line long ears” Kayen said flying away from Ochra and closer to Scallio once more.
“I get the problem Scallio, you’re still looking for the same thing we talked about last time, but even beyond the fact you’re attack shouldn't be happening because of our own alliances, this shit isn’t worth your time. It ain’t gonna get you past your limit its going to get you DEAD. So you get one chance, get your men out of the town, get YOURSELF out, and maybe go a few rounds with long ears over there since she's ACTUALLY worth fighting or I’ll kill each and every one of your men myself and then you. I’m going to assume you didn’t KNOW you were actively ignoring my orders I like you, I think you have a ton of potential, and it would be a waste to have to put you down but after Sensoa I don't have a lot of patience for this shit anymore so think HARD. I’d rather not have to tell Kabe you’re dead”

In response to her threat, Bloom only got a brief glance from the golden haired lady and passing glances - if that - from everyone else. Why were they all ignoring her? She frowned and scratched her head, deciding to wait and see what everyone did. Mm… Monkey boy… didn’t really seem to care much that the others were here. The lady’s name was Kayen, and the guy’s name was Ochra. There was this girl with monkey boy… she actually looked like a Heran. Hm. Would Dosu be mad if she had to kill a Heran? Mm. Probably not honestly. But anyway, her attention was yoinked back to the monkey as he continued his rampage while Ochra tried to go to restrain him. He also had golden hair and crazy amounts of power. Damn. Lot of powerful people out in the universe these days, huh? Meanwhile, monkey man just continued his rampage. How annoying. It was like they didn’t even notice-
Haha… right. She was still suppressing her energy. That would do it. Whoops. While Bloom was having her gently embarrassing revelation, another new face arrived on the scene. Some long eared… elf? She kind of looked like Ashi, but not really. Still, she could be a Konatsian. Mm… then again, her Ki kind of resembled that god guy from a loooooong time ago. She could have been another one of those guys. That was probably more likely now that she thought about it, but she wasn’t so sure how to take the living scythe. Kind of weird. Seemed like she had a scythe to grind with monkey boy, but she was happier to make dramatic entrances and proud declarations. As a Stargoon, Bloom could kind of appreciate her style. But again, Kayen would intervene, stating more or less that the monkey was her idiot, and she would take care of him. She flew more toward him, so Bloom wasn’t totally able to make out what was being said anymore. She definitely wasn’t disciplining him yet. Was he just gonna get off without a beating?
Bloom scowled and was about to say something when she remembered again that she was suppressing her Ki. Ugh. Alright. Glancing down to make sure none of the monkey’s goons had decided to pay her home a visit, Bloom powered on up. Her body wreathed itself in pink Ki as her clothing morphed into her Stargoon uniform. The star in the center of her chest flashed blue and started to change by itself. A long cape burst out of her, wrapping around her. Her wristbands morphed into gauntlets. Pretty cool. Leaping into the air, Bloom formed a large pink ball of Ki in her hand and lobbed it right at the monkey man’s face. He deserved that much for making a mess of her town and interrupting her dinner. She knew she was outmatched though, so she was just going to expedite matters.
Disappearing in a burst of speed, Bloom reappeared in front of Narissa, the Heran chick. Extending a clawed hand out to grab her face and relegating some Ki to her hand to make it shine pink to show that this was not an idle threat, she glanced over to Kayen and monkey boy.
“Hey… you should listen to your keeper, monkey boy… or… keepers…? I guess…?” Bloom glanced at Ochra and then Narissa questioningly before shrugging to herself and looking back at the monkey boy. “Well, anyway, what was I saying…? Oh yeah… Get out… I mean if ya don’t want me to beat ya up for interrupting my dinner or hurting this Heran girl here… it’s not that hard…”
The monkey boy had tried to destroy a town, so Bloom guessed that he was a baddie on some level. Which, according to Mumbo, meant that the best thing to do would be to like… let him live. So he could keep doing bad guy things in the future or something. Did that mean Kayen was a baddie…? Eh… but she was pretty sure that she had heard Kayen mention Carro who was a definite goodie. Man, it wasn’t easy to always tell who was a goodie and who wasn’t, huh? Mm… oh! Maybe if she introduced herself properly, then they might reveal their goodie colors. That was totally how it worked, right?
“Oh yeah… I’m Bloom by the way. Blue Stargoon, here to bring… some doom or something… Nice to meet you… Well… maybe not all of you…”
Bloom used [A1] Majin Ball for 369,600 PL in damage at Scallio to stop him in his tracks with intent to KO.

"You don't scare me Ochra." he said, stubbornly sticking to the choice he'd made even after the bounty hunter transformed. "Don't think just because you've got that golden hair your invincible or I'll go down without a fight." he angrily stepped forward, before his body tensed as Ochra charged him. He'd barely been able to make out the movement as it happened. If not for Kayen's intervention Scallio wasn't certain he'd have been able to dodge. Hell, he hadn't even seen Kayen move in the first place. Scallio's hands tightened into fists and his nails dug into his palms. Surely the gap between them couldn't have been that huge? Not in this state at least.
His face scrunched in frustration, Scallio turned his attention back towards the queen. The anger carried in her tone and the intensity of her eyes caught him off guard. This was a side of the saiyan queen that Scallio had yet to see. She'd had moments of irritation around him before, but nothing quite on this level. He didn't doubt for a moment that the truth behind her words.
She'd kill him.
Death didn't scare him though, and as he'd already proven intimidation was a tactic he was too foolish to heed. It wasn't all threats and angry glares, however, Kayen had said things that struck a chord with him. "I didn't know about your deal with Earth." and if he had, Scallio wouldn't have taken the contract for Ginger Town in the first place. It hadn't been his goal to put Kayen's plans in jeopardy.
Out the corner of her eye, Narissa caught a flash of light and immediately her attention was drawn towards it. "Huh," looking upward she squinted her eyes, "what in the world is that?" the answer came with a crash. Like a comet falling, the light landed only a few meters away from the gathered warriors. The dust cleared and Narissa's eyes widened, "You!" the heran gulped. This was not a good sign of things to come.
"You cannot be here right now."
Scallio's eyes fell upon the shijin and a beastly grin formed on his face. "If it isn't the little god, what an unexpected but welcome surprise." his blood began to boil and excitement coursed through his body. He watched, his thirst for battle and anger growing as the Kai dispatched one of his men. "Kale you idiot." he muttered underneath his breath, "Did you not learn your lesson about playing savior last time?" he taunted callously.
Before he could even think of fighting Aida, however, the situation at hand needed to be resolved. Thankfully, after hearing everything Kayen had to say, Scallio seemed willing to listen to reason. He looked from Ginger Town to the queen and then back to the town. His eyes lingering on it for several seconds.
"Fine." he said and prepared to give the order to retreat when a ball of energy came flying at him. The sphere slammed against his face with tremendous force. The oozaru bellowed out in agony and grasped at his face, "Gaah, who!?!?" he shouted through the pain.
Narissa was powerless and unable to prevent Bloom from grasping hold of her face. The heran shouted in surprise, "You sneaky bastard!" she attempted to pry her attacker's fingers from her face but lacked the strength. She kept her calm once she realized there was no escape, "Scallio, she's really serious." Narissa warned.
His vision recovered, Scallio glared angrily towards Bloom. "Men, stop what you're doing and return to the ship!" he shouted. Upon hearing his command, Scallio's men ceased there slaughter of Ginger Town's citizens. The sky then quickly began to fill with streaks of energy as they took off away from the town. When the last of his crew faded from view he spoke again.
Because Ochra could close in and grab hold of Scallio, Kayen intervened, causing him to crash into the Saiyan queen and push her back. The Super Saiyan let out a low growl at being halted, only to stop when he heard her explanation. She was actually going to try and reason with him? Ochra managed to contain his surprise about the situation. She was looking more and more like a reasonable ruler all the time. He hovered back, allowing her to speak with the unruly mercenary. But what was even more surprising was what she told him. Vegeta and Earth and formed a defense pact? Well, that thankfully ruled out any potential Saiyan invasion in the future. That was one thing the galaxy did not need right now. More importantly, it seemed to get through to Scallio, causing him to stand down. Well, guess he wasn't a complete idiot after all.
And then, trust for more potential trouble to turn up. First, there was Aida, the shinjin. Guess she had a bone to pick with Scallio, if their interaction was anything to go by. He quickly moved to put himself between the shinjin and the Oozaru. "Stand down," he said firmly, both to the Shinjin and her demonic scythe, "We have this under contro-" And then someone blasted Scallio in the face. "Son of a bitch!" His eyes looked over to see the majin gripping one of Scallio's associates by the face. A Heran woman, one that was substantially weaker compared to her. And then she introduced herself and Ochra's eyes hardened. "Of course. Count on a blood Stargoon to turn up in a situation like this." Seriously, they were everywhere! He was holding back from simply pouncing on her and using her as a living punching bag. "Let the woman go," he growled. They had just sorted this situation out. They were not going to have a Stargoon mess it up.
''...Long ears?!?'' Aida shouted back at the Queen, insulted. ''I...! The nerve...!'' She brought a hand up to her mouth, covering a frustrated snarl as as red filled her cheeks. Moringa began to chuckle idiotically from within his Scythe, not really helping the young Kai regain her confidence. Aida simply looked away from the crowd, arm tensed up at her side as she refrained from verbally screeching at Kayen.
Luckily, the perfect distraction came by to draw all of the judgemental stares away from Aida. Realistically, no one really cared, but it did help the young Kai to regain her focus. How lucky the sudden intrusion was, however...Well, that was subjective. There had been a Stargoon in their midst all along, hidden behind the appearance of the pale Majin from before. ''Well, isn't that interesting. Two birds with one stone, Aida?'' Moringa asked curiously, humming enthusiastically toward the Kai. Aida furrowed her brow, gaze hardening at the Blue Stargoon. ''...She's on our side.'' Aida replied, equally shocked by her own sentence than anyone else would be. To think she'd be on the same side as a Stargoon, an intergalactic super-criminal...!
Aida groaned inwardly, watching as Scallio hesitantly recalled his troops at the sight of his precious Heran parasite being threatened. It sickened Aida to see Scallio show that biased mercy. What made the Heran so much greater than these innocents? On top of that, Aida had a bone to pick with that blue-skinned heretic. One that reeked of revenge.
The young Kai let the scythe drop to her side, locked in a loose grip. The situation was still difficult, but she supposed she couldn't complain too much. Scallio's troops had disappeared, and the remaining residents of Ginger Town had been saved from certain death. Her gaze darted at her opposition, quickly glancing from person to person as she thought long and hard. What to do, what to do...?
Ultimately, her gaze landed on the Oozaru, and morphed into a harsh glare.
She wasn't done with him yet.
''I think you should listen to the Super Saiyan, Stargoon.'' Aida announced herself again, walking up to Bloom and attempting to subtly pull her away from Narissa by placing a hand on her shoulder. ''Not that I care for this one's life, but it's for your own good.'' She shot a harsh, hateful glare toward Narissa. If it weren't for Ochra's presence, Aida wouldn't have cared to stop Bloom from ending the Heran's pitiful life. She was just as guilty of Scallio's crimes than he was, associating herself and assisting him.
''You.'' Aida adressed Scallio. Her eyes locked onto the gigantic Oozaru, filled with disgust. ''You've got actions to pay for, and my patience has run out.'' The Kai's lips curled downard into a sneer. Pointing her gigantic weapon at the Oozaru, she announced the following. ''Today comes your reckoning, Scallio. However...-'' Her harsh tone softened as her voice trailed off. Aida lowered her scythe, and planted the handle into the ground. ''I won't be the one dispensing your justice.'' She announced. Her head turned to Bloom.
''You live here, correct? Then he is all yours.''
A twisted smirk curled it's way onto Aida's face. She knew how much Scallio wanted another chance to pummel Aida into the dirt, seeing as his limelight was taken by the Heran the last time they fought. She could see the hunger in the Oozaru's eyes. Oh how good it felt to take that away from him. And now? Bloom would take the rest.
''I will simply...Watch, to make sure the deed is done properly.'' Aida spoke in a taunting tone, looking up at Scallio's eyes with a grin. She ran her finger along the edge of her scythe's blade, almost teasingly

Kayrn was surprised when the previously irrelevantly weak Majin suddenly became a genuine powerhouse, she was still someone handle able by the likes of Ochra but was now far beyond Scallio’s current abilities unless he had a very sudden change from a red mohawk to a golden one, there was even a chance though that she could actually STILL pose a challenge for a theoretical Super Saiyan Scallio.
Additionally she revealed herself to be one of the Stargoons, a far more pleasant revelation considering Kayen’s track record with the group was pleasant enough so far, she gave a prompt and serious threat to Scallio to back up everyone else's attempts to get the Oozaru to back down from attacking the town, the only concern as far as Kayen could see was that she did so by threatening Narissa something that MIGHT push Scallio overboard, hopefully though it would only be after he had his Apes removed and once the Heran was somewhere safer.
Her attack his Scallio hard and while part of Kayen was tempted to protect him it was not an attack that threatened his life and with this little stunt it was probably best she NOT just leap to his aid until he was once again following orders, perhaps even the attack would help knock some sense into her wayward merc.
Thankfully Scallio called off his attack and his crew began to make a quick escape from the increasingly dangerous situation, Kayen could not really hold any of them responsible for this, they were simply following Scallio’s orders, not having to take them out herself was good, she would have likely HAD to start killing them off just to get the point across that they would need to abandon this mission since trying to simply disable them individually would take too long.
“Alright Bloom, it’s nice to meet another Goon, let the Heran girl go, Nerissa’s the voice of reason in their duo, I’m sure if you go through with your threat it will only result in more serious damage to your Town while Scallio goes off in a rage, I imagine you might win that fight, but not without risk to your home. I’m also in no mood for this madness to go on any longer so if anyone sets things off between the three.. Or four I guess if you count the scythe” Kayen said gesturing at Scallio, Long Ears, Moringa, and Bloom but not Ochra as the bulky hunter was clearly on the same ‘everyone stop being stupid’ train in spite of Scallio’s taunts.
“I’ll just kill anyone participating and be done with this. If any of you want to fight take it somewhere less populated, you can smack each other around for as long as you like then for all I care, my only concern is making sure my people aren’t disrupting my work, engaging in diplomacy is a headache enough as it is”

Well, well. Now all eyes were on her, weren’t they? That hadn’t really been Bloom’s goal, but she got a certain satisfaction from seeing the annoy ape boy’s face get smacked by her majin ball. Turning back to look at Narissa when she called her a sneaky bastard, Bloom raised an eyebrow and smiled wryly. She tapped the side of Narissa’s head lightly with a finger as the Heran struggled vainly to escape her grasp.
“Sneaky…? I’m not the one who launched a surprise attack on a town on Earth… I at least add a little more pomp and circumstance to it than just wholesale slaughter… or did you forget that little tidbit, Heran…?”
Her eyes were drawn to one of the golden glam hair people. The guy. Ochra was his name she was pretty sure. He was staring at her with barely restrained hostility. Bloom grinned. This was the kind of thing she enjoyed. This kind of tension and violent atmosphere. Still, she wasn’t going to let go of the Heran until ape boy called off his dogs, and if he didn’t do that soon, things were going to get very messy for his little Heran friend. Unfortunately, her good mood rapidly deteriorated when the Shinjin approached her and put a hand on her shoulder. Man, where did she get off telling her what to do? Maybe this was way Dosu and Mumbo didn’t like Shinjin. They were bossy. Not to mention, but she was also trying to nudge her away from her hostage. Bloom didn’t budge but seriously considered smacking the Shinjin with a majin ball. Turning away from the Shinjin as she made a pretty sanctimonious speech at Scallio, Bloom flinched when she was mentioned.
“What…? Justice…? Look little goddess, I dunno if you know this… but Stargoons aren’t really about that whole justice deal… plus, it sounds like a lot more trouble than it’s worth…”
Her irritation was abated when her attention was drawn away by that Kayen lady who actually had the decency to address her by name. Instead of Stargoon. Or you. She made some case for her letting the Heran go - her name was Narissa apparently - which vaguely annoyed Bloom, but she just shrugged it off at this point. Apparently, every here got off on telling her what to do, but at least Kayen handled it better than everyone else. Bloom had sort of gotten the impression that she was the lady in charge. Glancing down at the town, Bloom noticed with a bit of a surprise that all of the attackers had been called off. Must have been while she was distracted with the bratty Shinjin. Her demands met, Bloom just shrugged and released Narissa’s face.
“Hey… Narissa… if the two golden apes hadn’t been here, I probably would have killed you… and your boyfriend over there… and I wouldn’t have lost a wink of sleep over it… You get me…? Palling around with that guy is going to get you killed… just a fair warning…”
Scooting to the side, Bloom have Narissa a little pat on the back as her goon armor disappeared in a flash of blue sparkles. She probably didn’t need that anymore. Letting out a yawn, she floated over lazily toward Kayen.
“Diplomacy, huh…? You someone important…? Well, I don’t really care… want some peach cobbler…? It’s pretty good…”

Narissa kept her cool, breathing deeply as she waited for the situation to resolve itself. Which was difficult when it felt like her heart was going to beat right out of her chest. "I didn't forget anything." she muttered, "And for the record, I was against this in the first place." Narissa doubted that mattered to the Majin, though. "Murder and destruction on this scale is pointless." at least without a reason that had some type of meaning behind it.
It was comforting to see the others attempting to save her life. Each one of them tried to reason with Bloom as best as possible. Even Aida, with her hateful glare, tried convincing the Majin to release her. Which was surprising but appreciated nonetheless. It was Scallio who made the difference though.
With his call to retreat Narissa exhaled a breath, she hadn't been aware she was holding. A wave of relief washed over the Heran's body as Bloom released her. The Majin's words, spoken without a hint of uncertainty sent a chill down Narissa's spine. She kept up her facade, however, remaining brave in the face of the threat. "Yeah, well, he'd have blown up your town if they hadn't been here. So it looks like we're even." she huffed, her voice slightly shaking as she spoke. Quickly she flew to Scallio's side, eager to get the hell out of this town.
"Can we go, before I end up a hostage again?"
Scallio wasn't listening, in fact, he'd stopped listening to anything being said a while ago. It had all become white noise as his anger boiled up inside of him. He'd been made a fool of, his partner taken hostage, and his men forced to retreat. What was supposed to be a victory had instead become a moment of humiliation. His weakness put on display for all to see. "No.." he muttered angrily and moved his eyes from Kayen to Aida and then to Bloom.
"I won't stand for it!" he shouted, his ki violently erupted to life around him and his eyes narrowed angrily at the Majin. "Even if you kill me Kayen, I refuse to just stand by after this." he moved, and now found himself standing directly below Bloom. Crackling energy swelled up inside the palm of Scallio's hand and the Oozaru took aim at the Majin. "You don't get to just walk away!" he pushed his hand forward and the ki charged inside it fired at Bloom. It tore through the sky towards her, a compact beam of orange threatening to overwhelm her.
