I'll be going on a two week vacation starting tomorrow and don't know how often I'll have Internet access. Thank you for your patience. I'll try to be more regular when I get back.

Just minutely racist against humans?

Yup. Like, "they're weaker than us and more emotional, that's why we gotta protect them", sort of way. Might feel closer to chauvinism than racism, but with less of the power dynamic.

The sisters tried to keep their composure as Vară boasted about her flames. Alraune didn't take well to fire, but then again, they didn't take well to frost either. Still, they were sure that it was a good thing that these two, more magically oriented members returned to the guild.

"Well, my specialty is cookies, but I can make cakes, rolls, pies, pastas; savory, sweet, or spicy, you name it!" Vivian said with enthusiasm.

Sylvia added, "Vară is right, we use herbs to make medicine. Our specialty is actually a fusion of our two skills. Vivian makes a cookie that is infused with our...alraune nectar, but the herbs I include offset the...undesirable effects, while boosting the positive ones, to create a biscuit that is not only very tasty, but able to provide enormous amounts of stamina and a bit of healing. Not only can our guildmates take it along on journeys to cure their fatigue, it can simply be sold from the Guild as a source of revenue. We've sold it in the town where we came from, and it was extremely popular, so I'm sure we can make a killing here too."
Oh God, I was suddenly overcome with the urge to make Gauss slightly racist in a passive, well-meaning, but micro-aggressive way.
Gauss Atlas

Gauss turned her head towards the human. "Umm, like Richter said, this is my job, but there's no harm in getting to know our team. ...I'm sure HR would approve..." Gauss added the last bit with a slightly muted and tired sigh, "Anyways, I'm Gauss Atlas, 'Gauss' because I use E&M, 'Atlas' because I'm an Atlas Beetle... I'm sure you know how traditional reploid naming conventions work. But you can just call me 'Gauss', or just 'Atlas', whichever you prefer. I'm with the city's infrastructure department. Since the beginning of the energy crisis, I've been deployed for repairs and as an over-glorified backup generator in a pretty futile attempt to patch up our failing energy grid. Sure, this whole Crimson Nova thing seems more dangerous, but the way I see it, it's just a continuation of my previous job."

Gauss turned her attention to Richter, "And don't scare the human! You know they're more prone to succumbing to their emotions than us!" This was actually not true, merely a misconception some reploids had, but all-in-all, reploids were just as capable of emotions, and as prone to succumbing to them, as humans. "On that note, why are you here, Shannon? I'm sure there are plenty of medical reploids who could do your job without fear and with greater efficacy." As harsh as that sounded, the question was not meant as a personal attack, but for her whole life, Gauss saw the relationship between reploids as one in which the less capable human creators making reploids to basically take care of everything, and as the creation, the reploids owed their very existence to the humans, and therefore didn't really have much of a say. Humans were allowed to be cowardly and lazy, whereas reploids had to bear the burden of keeping things running so the humans could continue to be cowardly and lazy. Of course, there were exceptions, probably humans driven by delusions of grandeur or a sense of 'voluntourism'. This was, unfortunately, a fairly common sentient among reploids, some resented it and became maverick, whereas others, like Gauss, simply accepted it, but adopted the stereotypes.
I realized I forgot to pick a Bio-Metal. Since the Bio-Metals are based on Megaman Zero characters, can I use Model HA?
Hey all, sorry for having been absent. No real excuses, other than losing track of things with the holidays, so I apologize. I'm sorry to hear your new years wasn't happy, Paul. I hope things improve/have improved.
Vivian & Sylvia Altissima


Neil laughed at Talia's excitement before turning to the Altissima sisters. "I'll see if my... surprise is still intact and ready after all that. Do you two wanna come see it as soon as possible or do you wanna watch the fireworks first? I'm fine either way."

"I think the best part about a surprise is the anticipation," Sylvia said, "So I'll be happy to wait until after the fireworks show."

The Altissima sisters watched the show with the others. having grown up around humans, it was like fireworks were something they'd never seen before, but for Sylvia, it was special that she was able to share in this beautiful moment with Neil. There several moments, especially during the show's climax, that Sylvia wanted to just confess her feelings to Neil, but she held back, maybe it was too soon, and maybe it could wait until after the surprise.

However, things took a strange turn when two former guildmembers showed up. The sisters had a vague thought that maybe they had seen these two leaving just as she had first arrived at the Guild; Ditzy's mopiness when she arrived and Neil's subdued distress seemed to attest to that. But it was the way the demon and Neil behaved around each other that raised red flags in both sisters' minds. The sisters wheeled over in their cart and interjected Vară and Neil's curious banter.

"It's a pleasure to meet former members of the Guild, I'm Sylvia and Vivian Altissima. We joined the Guild recently. We're still getting set up, but we're going to be the Guild's apothecary and baker when the herb garden is finished." The sisters introduced themselves, with Sylvia doing most of the talking.

"I'm guessing you two are fighters? Most guildmembers are, after all," Vivian added.
Been a long-time fan of the Megaman X series (the first few games anyways), so I'm throwing in my interest with a character:

Vivian & Sylvia Altissima

The kidnapping had put a damper on the festivities, but Sylvia could sense Neil wanted to stay by the tone of his voice. "I think if anyone wants to go back to the Guild and check up on Ozzy and Kira, they absolutely should, but since Neil and I had already committed to helping Sister Riñas with the festival, it wouldn't be right for us to leave early, right?" Sylvia turned to Neil and gave him a wink. Whatever his reason for wanting to stay at Boreal Port, she would stay with him.
