Typha had come breifly to Earth just to make sure everything was going fine. He had been on Konats for a few months and then had to face off with Aurora on Breech along with Nashua. Typha was pretty sure he needed to catch up with the world news. Typha could not be sure if everything was going alright. He was right to be concerned when he read the news about Carro being killed. That was a shocker and something he found hard to believe. Typha had to check it out to confirm and if it was true then he needed to figure out who had killed Carro. Carro was a friend of his and Typha should be willing to help Carro out to deal with this threat who could be a real problem in the future. So Typha arrived at the King Castle and walked past any guards that could get in his way. While it was a bit rude he was pretty sure Carro would not mind him coming in and Typha didn't have the time nor patience to wait. Aurora had really wore him down when it came to his patience. Typha walked to the front and knocked on the front door to the actually building. "Hey Carro you there it is Typha."

CARRO's PL: 100 (ANTISENSE) | TIANUM'S PL: 7,000
"—C-Carro, careful!" Tianum reached out to grab her wobbling friend's arms. Carro winced as he nearly toppled over before being caught by the Doragon. He'd finally had his legs properly repaired, but his balance was all over the place. He'd never thought he'd essentially have to learn to walk again, but here they were. "Hey, you're doing alright." Tianum tried to reassure her boss. "With all of the effort you're putting in, I'm sure you'll be out there again in no time. We're all here for you." Carro remained silent and averted his gaze. The thought of returning to the fight was frightening, but he had a planet to protect. Tianum sighed in response to the stress in her friend's digitized eyes. "We can take a break if you'd li-"
There was a knock on the door down the hall, followed by a familiar voice. Tianum furrowed her brow in confusion while Carro froze stiff. Was that really Typha? The Konatsian wasn't a close friend of his, but any friend at all was something he didn't want to lose. He took another step forward, only to fumble as his robotic ankle turned. His assistant managed to catch him again, cradling her metal body in her arms. "I said careful!" She lectured before turning back to the distant door, glancing from it to Carro. "Is he a friend?" Carro quickly nodded. "Do... do you want to...?" Another nod. "...Alright then. But you're not walking there like this, c'mere."
Before he could protest, Tianum quickly scooped the android up into a piggyback. Being short was bad enough, but being cradled and propped atop his friend like a child?! "I-I'm fine, I told you-!" "You absolutely aren't fine." ...She wasn't wrong. "...I can do the talking to start. Pipe in when you're ready."
After a minute of no response, the doors to King's Castle creaked open, but there was seemingly no Carro to greet Typha- instead there was a draconic woman with a little robot tiredly slumped over her shoulders. The android's gaze was locked onto the ground. There was no way Typha would even recognize him like this- he'd have to break the news himself. "Uh, hello. I'm Tianum- head of security here. I, uh..." She struggled to find her words for a moment. "...I can only guess what brought you here. It's true. All of it." Carro and LEO were killed, murdered in brutal, cold blood to sate the selfish, destructive greed of another. The android remained silent. "...Did you know him? I can tell you everything I know if you're, y'know, o-on our side." She pushed the doors open fully to let the Konatisan into the lobby. She briefly glanced to the robot as she felt him grip her jacket tighter. Surely he'd be able to work up his words soon enough...
Typha stood at the front door waiting for someone to open it. But instead of Carro opening, it was someone else. They were carrying a robot on their shoulders. Typha then nodded as she introduced herself and confirmed the news that Carro was indeed dead. Now the android on her shoulders took on a more serious meaning. Was that Carro? Typha didn't speak he only nodded. He was trying to brace himself and figure out what to do. To think someone would turn themselves into an android after dying was disturbing, to say the least. He supposed it was Carro choice and if he was gone Earth would be in serious danger. "Yah I did know Carro. I can't say well but I feel like a friend I should come to see what I can do. I wanted to catch up on the news across the universe since Konats does not really get any. To say the least this is quite unexpected." Typha would enter the lobby as she left him in. "So what happened? Who has the gall to try to kill you? If they are still out there then I should do what I can to stop them. Especially, since they are a threat on Earth a lot of people, will get hurt until whoever did this is stopped." Typha had to move on from the news of Carro being dead he had to focus on helping Earth now. He had to help stop whoever had done this to Carro.

CARRO's PL: 100 (ANTISENSE) | TIANUM'S PL: 7,000
The Konatsian was approachable and nice enough for Tianum- thankfully this friend wasn't one of those who had tried to use the President's kindness against him in recent days. "Well, any friend of his is a friend of mine- we can use all the help we can get. I'm Tianum." She introduced herself, extending her free palm for a handshake as Typha entered. The android propped on her back remained ragdolled, wearily eyeing him.
At the mention of his own death and Typha's attention being drawn to him, the android's attention focused. "...Was it that obvious?" Carro managed to croak out in an almost teasing tone as Typha pinpointed his identity, though static lingered in his mechanical voice. "...Vocado. Vocado and Cress. There's a third party with them. I don't know who." He bluntly uttered the truth. "They... ambushed me- L-LEO could hardly react and regain her energy before..." Carro trailed off and shuddered, though his words would leave little to the imagination. Their target wasn't the mechanical feline. Some leader he was...
"...As for why, they... They want to use the Dragon Balls. I was unfortunate enough to hold one. I-If they get their wish and follow the footsteps of that terrible Empire from two-hundred some years ago like they want to... It could spell disaster for not just Earth, b-but the entire galaxy." Given their murderous rampage, it was very clear that the desire they wanted the Eternal Dragon to fulfill was not a pure one. "...I-I wasn't the first... c-casualty. If the names Tarch or Nashi ring a bell to you, then..." Tianum's own gaze was wrought with stress at the mere memory of her friend's demise. Still, she'd set Carro down on a nearby couch as he briefly wriggled in her grip. "I'll, uh, let you two talk for a bit. Holler if you need anything." She felt like she was intruding, somehow. With a quick wave, she trotted back down the halls to resume her own work elsewhere- she still had to work on some new circuits to fully fix her friend's legs, after all.
Waving his friend off, Carro closed his digitized eyes with an exhausted sigh. "...T-this wasn't supposed to... work like this, either." He muttered in a shaken tone, weakly gesturing with his half-built hand to his mechanical body. It was far from complete and had no right to actually work, but here he was. "I can see why you hate androids so much now." How could he have been so stupid to take his humanity for granted? Now he paid the price with no heart, no face, no breath or even a brain. If he was physically capable of crying, he'd have bawled his eyes out a long time ago. Carro opened the 'mouth' on his screen to say something again, but the words didn't come to him.
"It is nice to meet you Tianum." Typha smiled. He looked at Carro as he finally spoke. Typha could tell that the android had Carro's voice so he assumed that this was Carro. It was a sad sight to see Carro in such a state. When Carro gave the names of the people who killed him Typha frowned lightly. He didn't know Cress but he did know a bit about Vocado. He was that guy who Kayen had fought for the leadership of Vegeta. It seems that he went from a King to a bandit who wanted to kill for power. Furthermore, he now wanted the dragonballs again just like the saiyans got back on Namek. Typha frowned deepen even more as Carro gave a couple of other names the two killed, Nashi and Tarch. He didn't feel much about feeling Nashi's name, he honestly didn't like him that much he came off as a bit arrogant but it was still sad to hear he died. But a kid like Tarch? Did the Saiyan Vocado have no shame?
Typha looked as Tianum decided to leave to let them talk. It was most likely for the best. It was going to get pretty serious. Typha could hear the pain that was coming from Carro voice. When he made the note that he understood why he hated Androids so much Typha grabbed Carro picking him up and then pulling him to hug him. "I don't hate androids. Not anymore. I did once but I learned from you and Leo I should not assume things even of machines. Your not an android I hated, You have a soul and a life. Your not just a husk of metal. I get that your pain though. You almost lost everything and you don't know what to do. I understand that and do not worry I plan to fix all this. I am going to get the dragonballs and we will return to you normal. Along with Nashi and Tarch do not worry." Typha took in a deep sigh. "The question is now is how strong Cress and Vocado are." Typha would let go of Carro after finishing all this.

CARRO's PL: 100 (ANTISENSE)
Carro initially jolted in a startled shock as Typha reached out and pulled him into a hug- the last time he let his guard down he died, after all. But after a moment to regain his senses, pixellated projections of tears formed in his eyes as Typha spoke to him. He silently returned the hug, arms trembling as his emotions surged again. "I... I-I—" He had never felt more weak and helpless than he did now. The fear and despair of his crisis were far worse than every other horrible thing that had happened to him- being invaded by an alien parasite, crushed in the grip of a rabid Oozaru, striking himself down to sate the bloodlust of a demon, they paled in comparison. But even then, the comfort of even those he didn't know as well was a powerful ember that dismissed the agony, even if it only was for a short while. "T-thank you."
Their moment didn't last much longer. At the mention of the cursed words, Dragon Balls, Carro flinched in alarm. "Are y-you serious?!" He cried in alarm. Thoughts of how the two monsters would murder Typha flooded his mind, but... He did say they would be a galactic threat earlier, though. He wasn't about to deny help, as frightened as he was. "W-well... They're dirty fighters. D-don't let your guard down for a second if you fight them! I-If only one's around, don't make the same stupid mistake I did and save your energy so you can defend if others barrel in later. On their own Super Saiyan forms didn't measure up to LEO's full power, but..." Carro began to explain, but trailed off. "...Kais, I miss LEO a-already..." LEO was somewhere- he was still alive, so she had to be okay. He could feel it. But even then... "They have at least four of the seven Dragon Balls with them now. S-so we don't have much time left to stop them... I-If you know anyone else who could help, that'd be great too." He hated being cast to the sidelines. As cursed as this second chance of his was, he wanted to take back what was rightfully theirs and fight alongside his friends again. Carro shook his head to snap himself out of his worrying again. "I can try to make you a Dragon Radar if you don't have one already. Or anything else you might need heading out there, really. W-we have some training equipment and facilities back at base, too." Crop Corporated was a prestigious tech company after all- though the funds would likely come out of his own pocket, helping from the sidelines was something he was still very capable of doing.
Typha didn't need to say any more words when Carro thanked him. He could understand the pain of dying, but he bet the pain of being back but merely as a husk was hard to bear. Carro had lost a lot more then he had lost when he died. The pain that he felt must of been near the level he felt about Konats. A hollow cutting feeling that would not go away. It would be a long recovery for Carro and there no way he'd get in Carro way. He'd do what he could to help him regardless of his former disposition towards androids. When he moved back and asked about the killers Carro seemed afraid which made sense. They were dangerous if they killed Carro but Typha knew of his own power. He was confident that his strength was at least capable of matching anyone that realm the living realm.
Then Carro explained what had happened. He was caught in a two versus one battle and while Leo was stronger then each of them he was not strong enough to overcome them both. He bet it didn't help that Carro was there and Carro was not as strong Leo would need to protect Carro. It seems that not what happened though as Carro noted he missed Leo. So they killed Leo then killed Carro most likely. Typha closed his good eye in thought. He would need allies to defeat the two. "Yes, we will need others to help. I can overcome one super saiyan but not two." Plus who to say it was just two. If it was just Vocado he'd be unsure if Kayen was apart of it but if Vocado and this Cress? Had Kayen possability wanted to order them in disguise as rogue agents to kill Carro. It would deflect blame. Typha shook his head, it was not Kayen. He was pretty sure if she wanted Carro dead she'd do it herself. No way she'd let Vocado do the death blow.
If that was the case and he needed a favor he knew where he should go. "Well, I am going to assume that Vocado and Cress are on their own team. I recently helped Nashua on a planet the Saiyans took from the former Fleet. I think I'll first ask around the kingdom adn see if Vocado is working with them or just a rogue element. If the former then we may be in serious trouble but I think it is the latter. If so I am sure that I can convince Nashua or Kayen to help defeat them to patch up any hard feelings. Afterall, it was saiyan warriors formally of the kingdom who took you down." Typha sighed once more as he keeps thinking.
When Carro mentioned what he had to offer Typha waved his hand. "The training equipment would be quite helpful. I am going to need to be in top shape to take this undertaking. However, I am not in need of a radar. I've had a radar since the days of the namek hunt which I used to revive the people of Konats. So I've kept it around just in case in the future I would need it. I was hunting for them earlier when I ran into an android who wanted them for some other reason but now it seems he gave up the hunt. Though I wonder if he is working with them." Saizomaru had been looking for out for his daughter maybe that was related to Vocado but it was distant in months. "What do you know about Saizomaru?" Typha wanted to make sure he assumed it was nothing serious but considering he dealt with him last time in a hunt he may be part of this trouble.

CARRO's PL: 100 (ANTISENSE)
Carro grimaced with Typha's words- a two versus one brawl would be nigh impossible to win unless they had some secret weapon, if his own failure was any indication... He did have his own hypothesis and plans, but they would require time he didn't know if they had to make them work. "L-LEO's down, but i-if all goes well we should be able to repair her. She's part of the reason I'm still here, even if it had to be like this." The pale glow emanating from the core on his torso flickered for a moment. The Life Link still bound the man and machine together, even now. Right now it was just a matter of getting the two of them back to their feet. "As t-terrifying as this mess is, as alienating and awful as this form is..." Fear persisted in his voice, but a stubborn fire burned alongside it. Carro had never stayed down every other time he'd been knocked to the floor, why should he start now?
"I-I'm still Earth's leader- I can't just keep sitting here! I have a second chance, and I'm NOT going to waste it. Tarch, Nashi, and whoever else they've killed- I-I'll help bring them back!" He clenched his fists and narrowed his gaze to the heavens. Bringing the fallen back came second to restoring his humanity. Someway, somehow, he was going to fix this. After a moment, he slumped and sighed again. "Maybe this is a blessing in the cruelest of disguises. I just need to figure this out." There was a way. There always was- there had to be.
However, at the mention of the Kingdom and Vocado's allegiances, his gaze soured with frustration. "You have no idea." He had hundreds of choice words for Kayen and the others. "The thing is the Kingdom is supposed to be allied with Earth and help defend us. Kayen met with me and offered the alliance herself! But there has been not one, not two, not even four, but at least FIVE. WHOLE. ENTIRE. ROGUES. that have actively attacked Earth that are or were aligned with the Kingdom after Sensoa tried to assassinate me and take over the entire planet that one time." Carro ranted, wrapping his arms around his mechanical stomach. Thinking about all this made him sick, despite his lack of organs.
"Sensoa- he alone had about three instances I know of, there's also Vocado and Cress, presumably their yet-to-be identified third party, and one of their hired mercenaries or something attacking a village of innocents for no good reason. Kayen stopped the latter, but I think the attacker was just let go..."
Carro slumped and sunk into the couch with an exasperated sigh. This entire situation was ridiculous. "Assuming I wasn't plain betrayed, they're doing a poor job at what they promised to do. How can I trust them anymore when they can hardly be bothered to protect us from their own damn people?!" Carro rubbed his face. A few orange flares escaped the vents on the side of his floating head as his emotions continued to fester. He managed a sigh, trying to compose himself. "I know Nashua's a good person and Kayen can be a lot worse, but at this point I just wish they'd all just pack up their bags and us alone. They've dragged us into enough unwanted conflict over the last two years."
He knew what he signed up for as President. A defender and leader of Earth had to put up with this stuff, but that didn't make it any less stressful for a pacifist like himself. "But... Even now, a war or something equally horrific between Earth and Vegeta is the LAST thing I want. The thought of killing Vocado disgusts me, even after what he did. I just want for all this to stop. For people to get along for a single day..." Rest was too much to ask the uncaring universe for. Carro shuddered as memories resurfaced. How could anyone wish a fate as brutal as death onto another and smile? How could Vocado be okay with his path to end billions of lives?
Thankfully, the topic changed to something he could stomach slightly better. "Saizomaru's on Earth's side, last I checked. He's always been a bit rough and broody, but well-meaning from what I could tell. I don't agree with everything he thinks, but I trust him as an ally. He fought alongside me to stop Sensoa during the whole planetary-takeover stunt he pulled. I haven't seen him since, though." But apparently Saizomaru had been looking for the Dragon Balls. Carro grimaced- there were a few puzzle-pieces that fit together too well. "I wouldn't be surprised if Vocado and Cress and whoever else killed him, too." It would explain why he went off the radar in such a dire time, especially if he was already on the hunt. Who else could those monsters have killed that he didn't know of? Carro brought his knees close to his chest with another exhausted mumble. "...Everything about all of this just sucks."
Typha nodded as Carro noted that Leo was down as well. Guess they just overwhelmed Carro with pure force. In a two on one fight that made sense. There was only so much energy anyone had in a two versus one fight both warriors had two reserves to go on and Carro had one. While Carro was pretty down he at least had a goal. To revive everyone who was killed. Typha nodded. "I agree we need to revive them as soon as possible. Once Vocado and Cress are defeated hopefully that will be easy to do." There may be other groups trying to get the dragonballs but their wish was pretty noble and important. He was pretty sure others would understand the need to revive these people.
Then they moved onto the Saiyans. Carro made the point that Kayen had realy not done that much to stop any rouges from causing havoc on Earth. When he mentioned Sensoa he frowned to that too. "Where is he anyway. Last time I saw him he was attacking Namek but it was to help some friend of his. The Guru let him be after that and let him leave. Something about not wanting any more blood on Namek. Of course, I agreed cause I don't wanna kill unless it's needed but I am aware that he was a threat. Has he done anything since then?" He was praying Carro would tell him that Sensoa had not been seen. "But regardless I don't think you been betrayed. Kayen is not the type to send people to do her work for her. If she wanted you dead or earth conquered she'd do it herself. She ain't someone to hide another when it comes to what she wants. So these are rouge but that does not mean she is not doing enough to stop them." Typha shook his head. "I'll talk to her though when I can I am sure she will help us and if not then we know they are conspiring agiasnt Earth so they clearly can't be trusted as friends." Typha was hoping it was not later but they had to keep all options open.
Carro noted though he didn't want to kill Vocado which caused Typha to lay back for a moment. "I am unsure that is an option. I can understand you not wanting to kill people but all options got to be open. On Breech, an Aroscian named Aurora tried to force me and Nashua to flee by threatening the planet. She was close to freezing the planet but she hesitated just slightly. That when I struck her down though not fatally. I and Nashua then had to talk about what to do with her. While we let her go in the end I am honestly not sure that was the best choice. I wanted to let her go but she had unfettered hate for Nashua and others of the kingdom. She seems to have some illusion the fleet were some heroes. At least that what I assume. My point is that as president of Earth you have to do what is best for Earth. If that is killing Vocado then you can't let your own feeling get in the way."
When he mentioned Saizomaru he told him he was no trouble. He was a friend but he had disspeared. "I saw him a few months ago. He was after some wish for his daughter. He would not disclose what that was and I had a feeling it was not good. We fought thought we retreated pretty quick. So maybe it was nothing bad but it just had my concern. Either way, it seems it does not matter anymore. It seems he'd not betray you so most likely he either gave the dragonballs up someone took them from him." Typha could not be sure of which but hopefully he was alive and ready to help him. "I can understand your going through a lot but you gotta remain strong. Earth needs its president. They need to know that their leader is still out there. The people of this planet must be seeing or hearing some of the trauma inflecting the planet. They need a voice to tell them that it is being handled and Earth will be safe." Typha shuffled his arms. He knew Carro was not in the best shape but if Carro would not speak who else would speak on Earth's behalf to its own people.
