Lumina Lusteria, the Lustrous
Taco Time - County Jail Dungeon
Lumina smiled and nodded a little, yeah, "yeah, maybe I shouldn't have taken you so seriously before, but this is... Different, maybe." She cleared her throat. "You require varying degrees of salt, but.. well, my purpose in being here is too stop this catastrophy, and I will succeed."
She let Keith speak, getting one important confirmation out of him. She was in the right city, and this on the right track. "Thank you, Kieth. That's all I've got for you, though... No, there's one other thing. This card. It's one of the ones that was thrown at you, brother to the ones that killed Juan. Do you know about who used it?"
Hm. When she said rear entrance, she was hoping for something behind, not something below. That said, this was the worst scenario. Her rear entrance dumped them out into the middle of their preparations, completely exposing their presence. That said, at least they all knew where the other was. No getting away in secrecy like they were hoping.
Men ran off up the stairs. Maybe they had a third way out upstairs, maybe they didn't. She had to give her signal, but her friends were sorely outnumbered. If she could even the odds just a little, she wouldn't feel as bad about a short time away. She just needed to see the roof. That guy, rummaging around in a box in the middle of a fight. Perfect.
She knew what she had to do. Forging allies in her fight against an unknown catastrophy, presently, this was her task. Now she just had to do it! Power flooded her legs, and reinforced her fist. Mustering as much speed as she could, she burst forward, on a beeline toward the guy at the chest. She'd trip someone on the way, given the opportunity. She'd go for one, swift knockout punch before then beelining it to the stairs. She'd climb partway up before stopping and gathering her power into her hands. It took a second to focus it, but then she'd unleash it in a beam, upward and toward the front. Her signal to the guards out front.
That job done, she'd draw her weapons, powering on her shield first and regathering her strength.
