Luna Braddock - Glimpse
Old Mutant Underground HQ -- Washington D.C.Skills:
Telepathy -- Scanning; Communication
Luna cocked her head to the side when Veil corrected her. She looked at Veil then back to Max and smirked. ”Is it now? I suppose one will always lead to the other. Power of the tome leading to the tomb.”
Both words sounded one in the same with her accent. She narrowed her eyes at Max when he addressed her specifically. He seemed to be running down the list of people he had wronged, correcting them in their thinking and trying to justify the mistakes he had made and provide reasons for why he had done it. Luna looked around them again, reaching out to keep up the telepathic warding that would help her determine if another person neared them. She picked up on no further readings.
When Sapphire started to speak, releasing all her hate in pain into speech, Luna was hyper aware when her name was spoken. She glared at Sapphire and rolled her eyes at one point but didn’t say a word. Quarreling between members of the same group was not something Luna deemed productive at this time so she wouldn’t respond to that. The hate was directed to Luna but it was also an example of why Max was wrong and that he didn’t know anything about them or what he was involved in. Kid or not, they all had to learn and he still wasn’t. Sapphire knew nothing about Luna other than the outer persona she carried, an armor Luna wore all in itself. If Sapphire wanted to continue to project her hate and pain on the people around her that she didn’t respect or think worthy of her time, so be it. Luna would try her best not to rise to it anymore and focus on her ability to help the group she joined, as she had been doing for months now.
The idea of bringing Waverley’s mother back didn’t sit well with her. It was common knowledge that bringing the dead back never worked. Just look at any horror movie or book on the topic. It was a fascination of the dead that made this knowledge available but Luna just shook her head, it wouldn’t work and the only spirit seerer they had was Casper, which Max apparently did not know.
As Luna scanned the area again, she gave pause, momentarily leaving the space around her and felt another presence within her head. She hadn’t felt something like this since she was a child and reached out for her father in her time of need. Ever since then, he had told her to never do that again. The irony of Luna Braddock and even her Aunt being a telepath was her father not liking telepaths, as did most of the mutants Luna came across. It was why she never ventured into people’s minds unless it was defense or she was instructed to.
This though, this came out of nowhere and the person on the other side of her connection was James. ”James?”
Cayden Proudstar - MoonwalkerLocation
: Mutant Underground HQ -- Training Room -- Washington D.C.Skills:
Cayden frowned at Ben’s words and visibly flinched from Sunshine’s outburst. He could feel the anger pulsating off of her and removed his hand from Casper’s shoulder. James went off and Jack fell silent for a moment. Cayden looked over at Ben and sighed a little. Perhaps it was the limited interaction Ben had with humans now, the only one ever being Casper and Casper wasn’t exactly good with human emotion either. Not from what Cayden could tell at least. Casper continued to sneeze and Cayden smiled a little. ”I could find some tissue for you,”
he offered. Soup would also be an excellent thing but they had nothing in the way of food and even less for Cayden to actually make soup.
Cayden looked back where James and Sunshine had run off and hoped they were doing okay and James was able to get through to Sunshine. He glanced at Jack and saw he was looking at some charts with numbers and names, he was able to see that it was the Stock Market and then Jack started to speak and Cayden looked at him confused. ”Did something else happen?”
He had no idea what Jack was mumbling about.
