Alice stepped out of the car, smiling in appreciation at Desmond before turning her attention to the current situation. Her heart skipped as the reality of how close they were to an enemy came over her, but she quashed her unease and set a critical eye on the area around her.
"I want to stay out of enclosed areas during the fight." She turned in a short circle as she spoke, taking in the surrounding area. "Baradiel, move the car behind those storage containers to get it out of the way, this open area here is almost perfect. We'll go in and try to lure the stray out. Alphonse, while he's doing that, go back and talk to the guard. Get him to call up his overseers and work some of your charm on them. I don't want video footage of this, but I don't want him to lose his job over it either."
"Desmond, get up on that roof. I want eyes on the target before we walk in there. I know you hate it, but with your phasing you can stay up there until the last moment and still be able to jump in if things go wrong."
With her orders handed out, Alice waited until everyone began their tasks before starting her own. Very carefully, keeping her magic subtle, she started laying the outline of a complex trap. The trap was almost more human magic than devil power, requiring all of her attention to weave, but the result would be a snare that would only spring when a target she had marked got close enough.
