“We… shouldn’t,” Marwa said with a lack of conviction. If they went to help, would they make things better or worse? How much trouble would Praetor get them in, especially if they got in the way? “Some of the more powerful heroes in the city are there. If anything were to happen, Praetor should be able to handle it. Doubly so, alongside Vector.”
Kairi furrowed her brow again. “But some of the most powerful villains in the city are there, too. Vulcan, Caustic, Pipeline, Sickle-Cell,” she said, counting on her fingers. “Basically everyone that people here tell stories about and treat like boogeymen.” With a pause, she corrected herself.
“Well, except The Sisters.”

Talion fiddled with the watch on his wrist while keeping an eye on his opponent. Now that his power was taking effect, he’d estimate around 40 seconds before this ‘Gamble’ was out of the fight. All he had to do was stall for time.
Basically, what he’d been doing all his life.
There was a dark flash of emotion in Kaze’s eyes as she watched the armour-clad hero. It was rare for someone to still be standing, even after one attack. She wasn’t a Brute, was she? The attack connected, but did no damage whatsoever. That armour - whatever it was - appeared a damn sight thicker than most materials she’d ever come across. Even tinker tech.
She should focus on a weaker target. That Gamble looked promising. She doubted his ability to dodge an almost infinite number of strikes in all directions. Bringing her knife to the side, she focused on the space just past him and prepared to teleport.
Who does this bitch think she is?, she thought as her glare fell back upon Knight. It’s bound to break eventually, and when it does…
Her mind raced with possibilities. While she couldn't be sure how much the crowd has seen, if even one person had view of this damn hero making a fool of her, it was one too many. She’d happily restore their fear in her - by opening up her opponent, and gutting her like a fish.
Maybe she’d mount her outside the PRT base.
Catching her knife in a backwards grip, the teleported again. Not away from Knight, but directly past her, unleashing hell as she did so.
