CARRO's PL: 100 (ANTISENSE) || TIANUM's PL: 7,000
Carro continued to bottle his newfound agitation, but couldn't stop himself from clenching a fist when Zriracha explained she hadn't even thought of those she was asking him to get a ride to slaughter. The President was silent, trapped in his torrential sea of thought until the demon said the exact wrong words. "-And you think I don't know that ALREADY!?!" The murderer stood up from his seat, pixellated teeth grit and shoulders trembling, interrupting Zriracha right after that accursed phrase, "sometimes death is necessary." And to think this was just a small leak in the ocean he'd bottled up.
Carro quickly caught himself in his frustration, his angered expression quickly sinking to shock and sorrow. "I-- I'm s-sorry, I d-don't know what c-came across me, I just..." He stammered in an apology for his brief outburst, sinking back into his chair while wrapping an arm around his head. "Sometimes it is the lesser of two evils, yes, but... You can't look me in the eye and say going off to purge some unfortunate planet you'd randomly pick is in any way necessary. There h-has to be a better way!" He scratched his head further in thought, mumbling to himself.
Carro shook his head. "Even if I was cruel enough to let you murder innocents like they are inconsequential livestock, that wouldn't solve anything! Wouldn't you just get the instinctual kill-streak again later? It's a short-term solution that does nobody any good in the long run!" Sure, it'd sate her demonic desires, but the beast would likely get hungry all over again later. "If we could just find a healthier or risk-free way to let you output it, or get rid of it all together..." But how? Carro resumed his pondering as he tapped his fingers on his desk.
At the mention of "another deal," Carro just waved his hand dismissively. "I don't do demonic pacts- company policy." He'd had enough negative experience seeing black magic to know it was never good to mettle with. What did snap him out of his intense thinking, though, was the fact that Zriracha had essentially given Kayen a blank check. Carro sighed deeply- he knew from experience yet again that that was an awful idea, but he remained silent.
Zriracha's other two ideas were not very good, either. He wasn't sure what her clan was like, but if they wanted to take over Earth then they certainly weren't good. And while his planet had more than enough experience in dealing with rampaging demons, it still was far from an ideal situation. "No, no, there's got to be a better way." He spoke to himself more than anyone. This really was Sensoa all over again, but this time, he would do it right. This time he would help save this demon.
Carro rubbed his temples with another breathless sigh. "While I still implore you to talk about this to that Polarus fellow and whoever else you trust in detail, they know you better than I and can likely suggest better." He began, sitting upright in his chair again. "F-firstly, these are just spitball ideas for a better or more permanent fix, so take them with a grain of salt, I still will need to think and test a lot more to find something certain. I know some folks who are good with magic and purification, they might be able to help you. Or maybe there's a better outlet for your instincts, a loophole or something!"
Now, Carro felt a little more in his element, using his own ingenuity and brains. He had visibly perked up much more. "Like maybe a huuuge tournament, or instead of harming innocents, letting loose on a gang of baddies or super strong people instead or something! O-or some technologically simulated or controlled environment that could give the allusion of what you need! Or--!!" Carro would continue to ramble and fling ideas until he was likely interrupted. He was an excellent talker, if nothing else.
