Wullf Tai Assembles

Recommended Posts

Standing out in the heat of the sun was murder, especially on a day like today where the temperature had climbed well above thirty eight degrees.  Even where he stood in the shade of his GuAIZ R Ahrend was sweating, in spite of the khaki colored pants and tank top that he wore; though it wasn't a standard ZAFT uniform things were a little more relaxed here at Carpentaria and he decided that there was no need to be professional with his new squad just yet.

 

He had arrived here early, in fact he had gotten there very early after having come down with his MS in a drop ship earlier this morning.  His GuAIZ R now stood outside of what would soon be Wullf Tai's permanent home.  Though it was empty now Ahrend would soon put in a request for four new mobile suits for his squad, which would hopefully be delivered in a timely manner.  But for now he stood under his GuAIZ R and patiently waited, glancing at his watch every now and then.

"Jesus, it is freakin hot out." Karl had been to Carpentaria before, but he couldn't remember it ever being this hot. "How in gods name do you guys stand all this heat?" The guard beside him simple grinned and chuckled at little. "Simple really, we just get used to it." Although the answer surprised him, the answer made sense. "So were are you going?" Again the driver question caught him off guard. He was under the impression that the driver had been informed of the arrival of the Wullf Tai squad. "Sir, were are you going?" The question brought him out of his train of thought.

 

"Take me to hanger 4." Karl was aware of the people that would be in his squad, but he didn't know how skilled they were and if there were any veterans. Well, I wonder what our first assignment will be, or will we just sit around all day, playing cards? Only time will tell I guess. As the car rounded the corner leading to hanger 4, Karl noticed the large GuAIZ R standing out front. Stnading right at the foot of the suit, was Wullf. Karl leaped out of the car, thanked the driver and went over to talk to Wullf. "Sir, are we the first ones here?"

What a time to have a meeting, in this heat.I know I am used to the warm but this is ridiculous.Laike had never been to Carpentaria before but it never really occurred to him to have a look around. He had decided to leave a little while ago and walk down to hangar 4, in his red ZAFT uniform. I dont know what I was thinking when I decided to walk to hangar 4 but then I suppose I have been a little lazy recently and the exercise will do me good.

 

A few minutes later he approached hangar 4 and walked inside. The walk may of done him good but he was now sweating a lot worse than when he had started. He had been unsure how long he had been walking as he had been thinking about the team and whether or not he was going to keep up to their standards.this hangar is rather empty so it must be just a team meeting.He stopped worrying, took a deep breath and walked into the hangar, hoping that he was not the last person there.He easily noticed Mr.Wullf as he was the only person around out of uniform.Mr.Wullf was in the shade of the GuAIZ R and he quickly walked over to him noticing another member of his team as he got closer. He saluted Mr.Wullf "sir, Laike Rinawan reporting for duty sir."

Ahrend returned a brief salute before dropped his hand.  Reaching around behind him he pulled out a cap and with little care for how it looked he pulled it down on the top of his head to keep the sun out of his eyes.

 

"Welcome both of you, it's nice to see you again Karl.  Hopefully the other two members of our squad will be arriving shortly so until then you can do whatever you'd like, though I would suggest you go into the briefing room in the hanger sometime soon... at least there's air conditioning in there."  Ahrend pointed towards the inside of the hanger as he spoke knowing that the layout was simple enough that the pilots could find the room without his assistance.  After a moment of afterthought Ahrend spoke again.

 

"Lieutenant Laike, I hope that after we get things in order that you and I will be able to discuss your role in this squad.  For now you should just know that I'll be counting on you and that I'd rather delegate authority than horde it all for myself, but there will be time for introductions later so for now please head inside and wait."

"Yes sir, I will head to the briefing room right away, sir."as he saluted once again to both of them for a moment and then headed deeper into the hangar in the direction that Mr.Wullf had pointed in. He kept going until he found a closed door with briefing room written on it.He could feel some of the cold air surrounding the door.This must be it. Mr.Wullf clearly pointed in this direction and I don't think they would have briefing room written on the door unless this was the briefing room.He opened the door and went in.

 

As Laike went in he could feel the difference in room temperature as he closed the door behind him to keep the room cooler.It was a rather large room and by far, more pleasant than what he had so far seen of the hangar.He took a seat and began to relax a little bit. so now I guess I just sit and wait for the rest of the team to make it to the briefing room so we can start this team meeting.I wonder how long the rest of the team will be?

Kanto walked down one of the roads of Carpentaria towards hanger 4 his face pouring sweat, the scars on his left cheek glowing from the blood rushing through them faster than normal. Having only arrived on Earth a day earlier Kanto still wasn't used to the heat, air, or gravity only being on Earth once before many years ago. As Kanto rounded a corner and saw Hanger 4 he began to think of his last time on Earth and his arms twitched from the pain held in the memories. Feeling the pain again it snapped him from his memories and he looked at his glove laden hands just one of many results of his past. He laughed inwardly for a moment not sure of why he has come this far but hopefully being excepted into this squad would give him the opportunity he needed to achieve his destiny.

 

As he walked inside the hanger he gazed up at the GuAIZ R a small grin spreading across his face at the thought of piloting a MS himself passed through his mind, then he looked down at the two men standing in front of the MS. Having studied the roster for the new squad Kanto knew who they both were. Brushing off and straightening his green uniform Kanto stopped in front of the two men and saluted, "Sir, Kanto Wyeth reporting for duty and thank you for the opportunity to serve the PLANTs through use of my limited abilities. Sir." His face stern with determination.

"Well Wyeth I wouldn't say your abilities are limited," Ahrend said with a smile as he saluted in return, "obviously you're good enough to be in my squad so why don't you buck up a bit."  Pointing over his shoulder with his thumb Ahrend gestured to the briefing room he had just sent the other men to.

 

"If you head into the hanger you'll find a briefing room where we're all meeting.  It's air conditioned so why don't you head inside and relax for a few minutes while we wait for the last member of our squad."  With only one man left missing Ahrend felt the anticipation building up inside his body and he eagerly looked forward to being able to address his squad all at once for the first time.

The drop ship down did not seem to bother James.  Neither did the ride over to the base.  He was some what excited to join a team and get going in his military career.  Although the name of the team was rather stupid, James was still excited to be there. 

 

Seeing the GuAIZ R standing tall it reminded him of his training with the LT.  James made his way to the crowd of what looked like ZAFT soldiers.  He walked up to his LT and gave a salute.

 

James Bricker reporting for duty, Sir

 

Relaxing he took a look around.  He didn't recognize any of the members from the ZAFT ball.  But the member he did recognize was the man he trained with.  Hopefully he learned some disobedience.

As his new squad members headed into the air conditioned room Ahrend decided to join them, after all it only made sense in this heat.  Following the other men into the briefing room Ahrend took off his cap and stuck it into his back pocket.  Entering the room Ahrend dimmed the front lights.

 

"I trust that all of you had an uneventful trip here.  Let me be the first to welcome you to Carpentaria and to Wullf Tai.  As one of ZAFT's newest squads Carpentaria base will be our base of operations, that being said we're all going to have to learn a new type of combat here in Earth's gravity.  I hope that you're all up to the challenge; our training will begin as soon as each of you is cleared with Supreme Headquarters for mobile suit operations.  In regards to the suits that you'll all be using, well you saw my GuAIZ R standing just outside of the hanger... I'm happy to say that you'll be receiving the newer ZAKU Warrior model instead of one like my GuAIZ R."  Ahrend laid out four disks on the table in front of him, each one containing a full technical read out on the ZAKU Warrior.  "I hope that you all know that this data is classified and that should you lose it you'll be in more trouble than... well you'll be in trouble."

 

Donning his cap once again Ahrend gave the men a quick wave and smile and made a move to leave the room, and then he stopped as he gave it some more thought.  "As you should all know by now Laike Rinawan is my second, I hope you'll treat him with the same respect that you give to me."  Looking up at his cap Ahrend realized that now was probably a horrible time to leave.

 

"In this squad each one of us, we'll all be fighting as a squad but beyond that we will all fight in fire teams, smaller groups within the squad.  I will command fire team one, codenamed Easy.  The second team will be known as Fox-trot.  I will lead Easy with Weyth acting as my wingman, which obviously makes Lieutenant Rinawan  Foxtrot's leader with Zaiku and Rhine functioning as his wingmen.  While I hope that you'll get to know each of your fellow squad members you should also learn about your wingmen; pay attention to his habits, not only during combat but also throughout a normal day... the better you know your squadmates the longer you'll survive and the harder you'll fight for each other.  Well for now that's all I have.  Before Lieutenant Rinawan adds anything onto what I have to say I'd like to take any questions that you might have."

"I hope you don't mind my intrusion Mr.Rhine is it, but I think it would better to have everybody using the same Mobile Suit.Although I am not in charge, I would believe it would be more convenient for you to stick with the ZAKU Warrior so when learning the new type of combat.It would be harder to learn a new combat type if we weren't all using the same type of Mobile suits, particularly seeing we will not be in space for this training.The Earth's gravity will already make it more difficult than up in space where there is no gravity.I know you may have your preferences on Mobile Suits but it would be easier for you and the rest of the team, if you stuck with the ZAKU that has been assigned to you or at least in my opinion it is."

"I was sure one of you would ask that question sooner or later.The ZAKU's would be equipped with the specific requirements they would need for the training missions and so customization would not be needed at this current time.As much as we would all like to have these suits the way we prefer them, that would work to our preferences but that is not going to happen in these training mission.The whole point of these training missions would be for us to to efficiently utilize what the ZAKU's have been given for that particular situation and how well we can cooperate as a team.If we customize these ZAKU's to the way we would want them, then there would be almost no point for the training missions and it is vital we get used to tolerating with gravity in battle as much as possible. so we will be prepared for real missions."

As Ahrend listened to the exchange between Rinawan and Rhine he was at least pleased to see that one of his pilots had no trouble saying what was on his mind.

 

"I'll field that last question if you don't mind Laike.  I've chosen to use the ZAKU since it is fully equipped for geo-combat however a flight type, like the GOUF, didn't seem to be entirely necessary or practical for this unit... at least for the time being.  Most of you are still novice pilots and so you'll all have to start with the basics and work your way up.  Keep in mind that your ZAKUs can use the wizard packs which will give you plenty of flexibility in combat."

 

Pulling out a chair at a nearby table Ahrend sat down, having the feeling that he would be here for a while.  "Speaking of the wizard packs not long after we begin our training I am going to begin testing each of you to see exactly what pack you work best with, since each pack denotes a preference for either close, medium, or long range combat."

Kanto thanked the CO for the complement and went into the air conditioned briefing room letting out a little breath of relief that the first impressions went well and that he was being blessed with the wonders of air conditioning. Taking his seat he awaited for the rest to join them in the room. When the two CO's entered Kanto stood up and saluted then took his seat again when the conversations started. As the mobile suit assignments were passed out Kanto eagerly snatched up the disk on his Zaku Warrior. Listening to the conversations and the barrage of questions by one of his fellow team members Kanto's face flashing with anger for a split second. Gaining his composure Kanto turned towards Rhine about to speak is cut off by the LT and decides it best to not open his mouth.

 

Turning his attention back to his CO asks, "Sir, When will be able to start the training missions, Sir?"

 

Kanto was exited by the idea of proving himself with the different Wizard Packs and even questioned himself a little not sure of which one he believed he'd be strongest in he hoped for either the Slash or Gunner Pack but whatever the Lt assigned him he would be happy and grateful for.

OOC - Please try to lengthen up the... well the lengths of your posts guys.  Attention to detail will be essential when piloting MS and short posts will leave many holes open in which people could get the best of you.  Also you should be getting $1 for each word you type so length + quality = money in the bank.

 

"We'll begin our training missions in a few days after we've gotten to know each other a little better.  This will also give you time to adjust to Earth's gravity and to familiarize yourself with the other members of this squad.  Oh, and I should add that unless any of your are married that we'll also be living together.  The base commander was kind enough to provide a dormitory for us and I'm pleased to say that you'll all have your own room."  Actually it was less of a dormitory and more of a mansion, the sheer size of it made Ahrend think back to the days when man first took to the skies and pilots were treated like kings.

 

"Onto the purpose of our squad.  We have been assembled to compliment the current forces that are currently station here on the Earth by ZAFT.  Make no mistake in thinking that since we are a new squad that we'll be one of the last to see combat if a war is ever on.  This squad has been designated as a front-line MS squad and we will operate off of the Lesseps Class battleship Goethals."*

 

*I chose the name Goethals since Lesseps is the name of a Frenchman who was in charge of the Suez Canal project which began in 1854.  Lesseps also attempted to build the Panama canal in the 1880s but the operation failed due to a number of problems.  The Panama canal was completed under the supervision of George Washington Goethals after Panama had its US assisted revolution, this work ran from 1904-1914.  And so the basic logic is this, where Lesseps failed Goethals succeeded, no offense to Andrew Bartfeld intended.

Karl looked a little offended. " So what your basically saying is, we're regular soldiers?" He looked around, Looks like a waste of good skills and pilots if you ask me, but then again he didn't so...

"Well, that's a yes and no answer.  Of course we're all soldiers but there's no such thing as a soldier who isn't special Karl.  We're expected to protect our country and we're being outfitted for such a task."  Ahrend wasn't quite sure of how to field this question and so he needed to take a moment to figure out a good answer.

 

"We're not special forces Karl, but no matter where we're stationed and what our position is we only have one life to give.  I've never looked for a glorious death but if there is one it will only be made better by how I lived my life and if my being here means that I can protect the innocent then that's enough for me; but you'll have to figure out what being a soldier means to you and that's all I can tell you about that."

 

In the back of his mind Ahrend wondered if he hadn't made a simple question more complicated but he decided to leave it alone.  For now there were other things he'd like to address.

 

"Now, if all of your don't mind I'd like you to, one at a time, tell the rest of the squad your name and the combat experience you have, if any, and also a little something about yourself... something that you consider important."  Ahrend turned sot hat he faced Lieutenant Rinawan, "Lieutenant, would you mind starting us off?"

OOC-sorry about the late reply I hope this post makes up for it.

 

IC-"No not at all sir, I don’t mind.I will try to keep this as brief as possible."as he slowly stood up and looked towards his fellow comrades and put his hands behind his back. He wasn’t really eager to talk about his history to the group yet, he hadn’t known his comrades for what felt like more than ten minutes but he knew better than to disobey his commanding officers orders.

 

“My full name is Laike James Rinawan and I am 18.I have been in the ZAFT military since I was 16 so roughly two years ago, I joined ZAFT so I guess you could say I don’t have a lot of military experience.It was my dream ever since I was young to become even half the veteran my father was.My father James became rather well known during the two bloody Valentine wars and my mother offered her services to ZAFT as an engineer during the second bloody Valentine, after she realized that she was a coordinator. I also have a sister two years younger than me and she is rather important top me, being me only family left.After the PEACE treaty was signed my parents lived together for a year, I think, before my mother and sister moved away as my mother had gotten a job in engineering in Orb and was meant to stay there for 5 years.” Laike began to feel a little uneasy as he began to get a horrible feeling as he began to speak again

 

“I lived with my father whilst my mother and sister were in Orb.During that time I learnt many ways to defend myself, thanks to my father.The last time at 12, he was teaching me how to perfect my aim with a cap gun by shooting targets.I had just gotten a perfect shot fired when my father was shot from the distance.That day I’ll never forget and was hard for me to get over.”Laike took a breath and relaxed a little now that he had told the part that he was least comfortable talking about   

 

“When I was sent to live with my mother an sister in Orb, mother would not me to continue anything of the sort and was shocked to hear what my father had been teaching me.Instead, my mother insisted that I learn some other hobbies that would involve more thought or intelligence for the next 4 years until my mother died in a car crash incident. My sister and I then returned to my father’s empty house that he had left to me.My sister then encouraged me to join ZAFT when we arrived back up at the PLANTS.I used what my father had taught me and my intelligence to get where I am here today." as he prepared himself to speak again

 

"The main two reason I joined ZAFT apart from my sister’s encouragement was that I wanted to do something that would make my parents, proud of me and I had always wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps so I thought this would be the best choice.I also think I that if I had never became a ZAFT soldier, I would never of forgiven myself, not when I know that I could help make a difference in the battles fought.I know I have probably bored each of you to half to death but I find they are the important details of how I got here today. ”as he finished his speech and sat back down

Listening to Laike speak James stood up next.  He cleared his throat and began.

 

My name is James Zaiku.  You can call me Zaiku.  I am 21, and I'm from Aprilis.

 

He paused a bit before he began. He searched his history for certain things to say or leave out. 

 

My father was also a member of the ZAFT military.  Growing up it was me and him, so I have been around the military all my life.  As for military experience, I have very little.  Thats all I really have to say. 

 

He quietly sat down and waited for the next brave soul to stand up.

Karl shrugged, nobody else was standing up, co he did. "Name is Karl Rhine and I'm 29. I join ZAFT at the age of 15 and served for the latter half of the first war and the entire second war. Not a fan of teams, but it's not like I have a choice. My reason for signing on was the Bloody Valentines day incident."

 

Karl had run out of stuff to say, so before he got himself in real trouble, he shut up and sat down.

OOC: Wow short posts huh guys.

 

IC: Kanto stood up and saluted, “Pilot Kanto Weyth, 24 years old, born on Januarius two. My Father was a part of ZAFT, which seems to be a staple of all pilots today, and my Mother was a news reporter. At the outbreak of the first Bloody Valentine War I was sent to ORB to live with my Grandparents but they all died during the invasion by the EA. I was the only one to make it to the shuttles but not unscathed.”

 

Pulls up his uniform sleeves to reveal completely bandaged arms. He lowers the sleeves and continues his life story. “At the outbreak of the second Bloody Valentine War my Father reenlisted and I stayed on the PLANTs this time. My Mother was killed during the firing of the Requiem Cannon which i got to watch because I was on a shuttle going to Aprilius for school. The night of my Mothers funeral my Father tried to kill me and himself, which is what gave me the scars.”

 

Points to the two scars crossing left cheek. “But I killed him instead. After that because of the Destiny Plan I was placed in a specialty military orphanage and even after the disbandment of the Destiny Plan continued to undergo military training. When I turned 18 I left and tried to do my own thing but came to the realization that I am only good as a soldier anymore and ZAFT is the only thing I have left. So I came back an enlisted also i have no combat experience which leads up to now. I'm eager to prove myself as a pilot and will do whatever is required of me. Sir.”

 

Lowers his hand from a salute and sits back down in his chair face revealing no emotion same as it was when he started.

"Well," Ahrend began as he sat up in his chair and intertwined his fingers, "you all already know my name but just for the record it's Ahrend von Wullf; some of you may know me by my other name which was bestowed upon me during the second Bloody Valentine War."  Ahrend paused for a moment as he remembered the incident.  "I was called the Black Wolf because of my involvement in Operation Spear of Twilight when my suit was burned black because I pursued my enemies through the flames of their comrades' mobile suits."  Almost to himself Ahrend mused, "It's not a very affectionate name is it?  No, it was one given to me by my enemies, by those who feared me."

 

After a moment Ahrend regained his composure.  "Excuse me, after you've been around as long as I have occasionally you have to reserve the right to be a little crazy.  Aside from my involvement in Spear Twilight I also participated in the Battle of Heaven's Base and... well I was fairly active throughout the Second Bloody Valentine War.  During the First War I was also active as a soldier in ZAFT but I dealt with things more on the administrative side of the war."  While it was true that he had been in many of the operations from the previous war his role in them, as well in the first war, were not entirely accurate with what he had said; but then a good deal of Ahrend's history since he had entered ZAFT was classified and though the general details he had revealed were true he had decided to not disclose the entire truth.

 

From outside there came the rumble of large trucks and machinery.  "Well now, I suppose that would be our new mobile suits.  If all of you wouldn't mind please go out and move your respective suits into the hanger where our own mechanics will inspect them and tune them up.  After all," Ahrend said with a knowing grin, "you can't trust any of this stuff right out of the factory.  Each one of your machines is marked by the first letter of your fire team and your number within the team."  Standing up Ahrend tacked up a paper onto the bulletin board on the nearby wall before walking out into the hanger, on the paper were the respective call signs of each member of Wullf Tai.  As an after thought Ahrend turned in the doorway and called back to his new squad.

 

"Even though we've been divided into fire teams Easy and Foxtrot remember that the five of us are a team and our radio operators will refer to us as that and so they will call us Wolves.  Each of you are my wolves and I am your leader, be sure to remember that on the field of battle."  With that Ahrend went out to his new ZAKU that was waiting for him.

 

Wolf 1: Ahrend von Wullf - E01

Wolf 2: Laike Rinawan - F01

Wolf 3: James Zaiku - F02

Wolf 4: Kanto Weyth - E02

Wolf 5: Karl Rhine - F03

      From the oak podium Hitomi spoke out to the small crowd of reporters and foreign dignitaries who had gathered together that day.  Each one had come to see the new face of PLANT and to watch Hitomi's first public appearance.  Though she was nervous the long white coat that she wore over her councilwoman's attire did a splendid job of masking her body as it shivered ever so slightly.  With both hands Hitomi took hold of either side of the podium and glanced down at her speech.  When she got her cue she began to read and left her worry behind her.
       
      "As the newly appointed head of the PLANT supreme council I would like to announce my first act in office which is the addressing of PLANT's soldiers who are stationed throughout the Earth Sphere.  I call on each and every one of you to do your duty and to act accordingly as you have been taught to by your families and by your superior officers.  We living here in the PLANTs have you to thank for our continued safety and prosperity.  I expect great things from all of you and I pray for your safe return."
       
      With a sigh Hitomi turned and left the podium, ignoring the reporters' questions, they would be answered by a subordinate more suited for the banter the reporters' craved.  The event would last several hours during which time various representatives and personnel would deliver multiple reports on the current state of PLANT but what was done was done.  Hitomi Matsuko had announced her presence to the world and she would not be going away.
    • By fireminerva
      Thwap, thwap, thwap.  Hitomi exhaled each time she struck the black bag which hung from the ceiling.  For the past several months she had been studying Taekwondo and she was quickly picking it up; already her sensei had told her that she would soon be ready to take on real opponents.  Of course such compliments were flattery to be taken only at face value, as Supreme Chairwoman few things which were said to her could be trusted.  Landing a succession of round house kicks to the bag's midsection Hitomi released the last of her frustration on the bag with a loud yell.
       
      Though this was an odd place to hold any sort of meeting Hitomi had wanted the soldiers she had invited over to feel comfortable and have the chance to relax, even though they were expected to arrive in uniform.  As her aide passed her a towel and whispered the time to her Hitomi took both casually while she calculated just how long she would have to shower and prepare herself.
       
      Since she had the time Hitomi treated herself to a long hot bath, after which a different aide came in and helped her prepare her hair and did some last minute fussing over Hitomi's clothing. Today her aides had selected a maroon red skirt/coat match along with a white blouse, while this attire was still formal it was also very low key and unoffensive.  As her hair naturally fell into place Hitomi waved her aide away and took one last look in the mirror before she left the room.
       
      Though an ordinary visitor may have gotten lost at the Chairwoman's large manor home Hitomi knew the hallways quite well, this aided her in achieving a speedy arrival at formal events and served a dual purpose should she ever need to escape the large home.  Pausing outside one of the houses three tea rooms Hitomi waited with an aide who handed her a plain brown folder.  Though she had memorized the names and faces of the soldiers she would meet days ago Hitomi had reviewed the list one more time before entering the room.
       
      Her timing was perfect and just as she sat down one of the house's staff members announced the arrival of a visitor.

      OOC: this is a slight character building thread for me. I am also using it to introduce my character’s father, who I need to most likely have made into an NPC. If someone wants to drop in feel free.
       
      IC: Michael was on his knees hunched over at the foot of the Januarius City Memento Stone. The memento stones were statues made by Michael’s father at the end of the Bloody Valentine War to honor the sacrifices of those who lost their lives and for virtues that Coordinators and mankind must learn to live by.  One was in each PLANT.
       
      The Januarius City memento stone held special meaning to Michael, and within a few moments his tears were falling onto the dozen roses left at its base. The Januarius City Memento Stone was “The Guardian”, and it was a statue of Michael’s mother, who died in the first war. Michael nearly broke the mask that he was now holding in his lap as more and more tears fell. Finally Michael was able to look at the twilight sky.
       
      Michael was filled with memories of the last time he was here a few years ago. When he finally stood up to his father and made the decision to join ZAFT. He was a stubborn man, who had tried to control Janus’s life. “Why mom, why did you leave me with him, and why did you die to protect other people.” Janus couldn’t even muster the energy at the time to scream. More and more tears fell till Michael just hit the ground with his right fist.
       
      After a few moments Michael stood up facing the statue. Putting his mask back on Janus turned and began to slowly walk away from the memento stone. His covered eyes were still showing the signs of his anger and his doubt. This is the right thing to do, I am walking the only path available to me right now. I'll defeat every enemy until I find the answers I want.

      The echoes of several footsteps could be heard through the hallway as a man in a black lab coat had been followed by several green ranked soldiers with papers in their hands with questions coming from each of them. Long flowing black hair having been moving with the body and a pair of crimson eyes that stared forwards had been of the lead scientist of Technology in ZAFT getting hassled by the army.
       
      " General Darlton and Janus want to know how the production of things are moving along? " One of them had asked while trying to maintain the scientists long strides. Kaze had been ignoring most of the questions and seemed to have had his own thoughts on mind. " Tell them it's moving along fine. " He had answered giving an answer which lacked detail. " Chairwoman Hitomi had also been wishing to talk to you about the current funding for the next few projects. " Another one had said out while the man's walk had increased in speed from the annoyance of the army. " Tell her to call me instead. " He answered in slight annoyance.
       
      Once through the hallway he had come across the main lobby of the PLANT and had planned to take the elevator to transfer out of Januarius and head off to other areas where he was needed. Having stepped in front of the elevator doors he turned and looked at the other men who had more questions and needed answers from the scientist at least. " I suggest sending the rest of the issues and pressing matter to my office. I wish to be alone. " He had said to them as the doors opened and a soldier was already in salute as he was standing inside the elevator. Kaze had smiled a bit and turned around stepping within as the doors closed to the soldiers who were about to follow him but were cut off, his crimson eyes turning to the soldier who was saluting him who was his son;Ryou Misaki. A pair of golden eyes who were hidden behind a few strands of the messy white hair which the boy had grown and left unattended to the natural messy order. Then again he was not one to talk, his own black hair had been longer that it reached past his shoulders at times.
       
      " You can stop saluting me... " He mentioned and walked over to the seats as the elevator had started to rise up. " Sir! " Ryou answered in response and placed his arm back to his side as he waited by the door. Kaze's smile having remained considering his son's attitude; Serious and Cold. He was proud to have him as a son, truly proud and yet there were...many flaws in that. Ryou was after all his finest project; A remake of the remaining information of Hibiki that he could collect without having been suspected. It did him no good, it was a failure in the end and the result caused a conflict between him and his assistant who had believed in a different theory than he did. In the end it resulted in him doing it alone and causing the womb of his wife to turn into a chamber for where he could create at least something similar to the man's hoped for work.
       
      Kaze had realized it now that the remnants he received were not enough information. And the cost of information made him create a failed coordinator; Ryou. Humanity's desire itself was the improve upon itself and Kaze wished for the same, he wanted to make that ultimate being and help the Coordinator's realize their true function: Help Humanity. George Glenn himself had wished for that desire, yet with the recent issue of Coordinators and Naturals it truly had strayed from that past.
       
      Coordinator's turned ambitious and seeked an identity for themselves. Dubbing themselves a New Species, A Better Species, An Improved Species. And of course with such arrogance in themselves they believed that the people of Earth were things of the past and a step lower in the evolutionary scale. Even now it does not change. People's eyes have grown accustomed to seeing them as 'Naturals' and yet what were Coordinators themselves - 'Unnatural'? The answer itself is No. George Glenn was wrong, Coordinators were no different than Naturals themselves. We have to study, train, adapt and grow old like any other human being. Coordinators are no different, just an arrogant race that in the end started a War simply to dub themselves the true rulers of Humanity.
       
      Humans, or Naturals as they liked to be called are no better themselves. If Coordinators did not exist, their blames would be put to themselves and thus would hate one another. The Planet called Earth would simply be filled with humans hating one another with racism. The government themselves couldn't handle all the issue so they instead blame the Coordinators and PLANTS. 'United in Hatred', as one can picture. The President, Countries and Nations, they all help one another for a sole purpose: Hatred for Coordinators. An easy answer for the government and people who are confused as to why they're poor or have civil issues. Truly...Humans are-
       
      " Dad? " Kaze had opened his eyes to realize that he was lost in thought and had closed his eyes. Having been at the top floor already with his son having placed a hand on his shoulder to bring him back into reality. " How have things been with your team? " He had asked his son as the boy stood up straight once more with a somewhat blank face. " I can't complain....other than the lack of experience for the captain. " He had mentioned as Kaze already knew of that, but it couldn't be helped. " Your not the only one. Other teams are starting fresh... " He mentioned as he had looked over the papers and was thinking of what mobile suit would be best for each person. " I guess... " Ryou had said with a shrug of the shoulders as he titled his head back a bit and looked to the side to the city through the elevator glass.
       
      As he stared at his son with the blank look of his son and innocence in soldiers Kaze had realized how War had changed from wanting trained personnel to wanting young children grow into battle itself. There was also an issue of Coordinators themselves making soldiers for the sole purpose of fighting. Those who are legends in battle and are the perfect soldiers, they are the ones who's genes are entered within other infants until they can make a perfect copy; A Clone. Yet this itself has it's own issues and that's something Kaze himself had been ordered to fix...not that it's public information or even known to most of the chairmen and chairwomen in the council. He wondered himself if Hitomi knew of this.
       
      Kaze had realized he spent his time within the elevator long enough so he had stood up and started to walk out and down another long hallway with his son 3 steps behind him. " I'll be needing some time in a room. " He mentioned as Ryou had given a serious 'Sir!' remark back to him and lead him to a room for the time being until a ride was ready to take him back. " Um..what about...meetings and people? " He had asked his father who's simple response was: " Just put them in a meeting room around here and I'll get to them. " He answered and closed the door.
       
      Kaze had sat down behind a desk and opened a laptop with a new email having been received from an Anonymous address which told him ' Continue the Process'. " What a joke...like you're not satisfied with the last two wars... " He whispered, sighing as he opened up a folder and watched the data from the previous wars. " Whether there will be  peace or war...no one but them will know. " He whispered as he turned and opened the window to see the stars outside at least. " At least the stars will be witnesses to Humanity...even now we're traveling beyond the original bounds that's been placed in front of us...and we're repeating the same mistakes.. " He whispered, closing his eyes once more and contemplating the rest of what he had gotten over time.
       
      Ryou on the other hand was running through the corridor in a hectic speed. " Damn it...why'd you leave me to manage all your meetings with people. " He whispered as he didn't even know who wished to speak with the man. This was all too troublesome....

      " And who's mind did this come from? "
       
      The room was dark at the time as the night had entered itself into the PLANT leaving only streetlights from the window to enter as a figure was sitting on his chair and staring outside, a computer having been on the table who which he had his back upon. The screen having shown that there was a online talk with another figure who's face was hidden. Kaze's eyes having stared outside as his head was supported by his hand, his lips having been barely open as he was wondering what else to say at the new decision having been handed out.
       
      " It's not a matter to you. It's an Order from you're superiors. The current tension between the EA and USSA require more direction. "
       
      The voice was filled with voice modifications, having been impossible to decode considering the amount of different additions and warping in tone. Kaze had attempted to change it himself but the data left over from the conversation would be completely deleted as if the call was never made. " The Assumed Creation of Suits. Yes, I've heard. " Kaze mentioned.
       
      " The PLANT's themselves are worried that this may turn into a global war for the planet. A new Leader of your status and capabilities would be better. "
       
      " And of Hitomi? " He had asked wondering what she'd take of this news. The woman had recently become the leader and such a thing may discourage her. If anything threaten her.
       
      " She will remain as she is. Consider it a cooperative Leadership. "
       
      He sighed, this was too sudden to take already. Having turned his seat around to look at the computer screen he had spotted the shine of glass and peered over to a chess board with glass pieces of black and white having been on the corner. " Do you wish for me to end up like the previous chairman? " He had asked referring to his teacher in medicine.
       
      " He served his purpose. That is all. "
       
      No answer like always, Kaze's eyes having darted back to the screen as he gave a disappointed look. " I understand. Keep my updated, though communication from now will be more harder to keep. " He had mentioned as he wondered how they would manage.
       
      " It had never stopped us before. If we do not communicate, a file will be in your computer from the next move. Remember Kaze, do not disappoint us unless you want your experiment to become public. "
       
      His hand twitched while his body remained calm, the fingers tightening a grip on the arm rest as he closed his eyes. " You wish to blackmail me using my Son? " He had mentioned, having understood they would take the chance would do it.
       
      " You've changed. Before you had called him a God, A Failed Experiment, and now a Son. Don't let yourself get attached. It will cloud your judgment. "
       
      He opened his eyes again to stare at the screen. " I call him Hope. A life that I've played God in, the same would go for her father also. " He mentioned having known the girl must have been his son of all others.
       
      " Hope, it is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength, and your greatest weakness. We have no further progress with this conversation. We will contact you when it's needed. "
       
      The screen had turned black as the computer shut down completely. A weak sigh escaping Kaze's mouth as his hand moved from supporting his cheek to his head, a weak smile forming. " It's all up to their Will then. " He whispered.
       
      Morning
       
      News networks had spread fast and moved to the PLANT's as the sudden spark of political debate had come up of a second Leader. It was a first for Coordinators, having a Cooperative leadership between two entities. The PLANT Supreme Council members having been arguing with themselves as they wondered how such a notion had passed and what it would affect in the future, it was rather unexpected for all of them.
       
      " A Second Supreme Leader?! The PLANT's will just end up in more confusion! "
       
      " Considering our previous ones we will need in case one does as the previous two! It'd be better if Kaze is elected, he's the leading scientist of Technology for the PLANT's. Who else?! "
       
      " For now we'll have to accept it. Whether he steps up or not we'll see. Besides this conversation is not worth our breath. The current issues of Mobile suits being made by USSA and in South America should be our main focus. "
       
      The Council had sighed in frustration, silence finally overtaking the room as a few members looked over to the empty seats as some couldn't make it. The meeting was rather unexpected so it wasn't surprising. Kaze o nthe other hand had to make it to the city in a car that was continually watched by news and several questions being shot at him as he made his way slowly to podium where he would make the speech, the room having been filled with several news networks from which he guessed a few were from Earth and ORB. Never the less there were a few soldiers at his sides that were prepared to defend him if needed.
       
      " I've come to talk about the speculation and rumors that have been going around. And they are true, I will be become the second Chairman of the PLANT's. Regarding my partner Hitomi she will remain also in control so this will be a cooperative leadership. It's rather sudden but for the progress of the PLANT's I feel as if I had no choice to deny it. As many as you know I am also the leading scientist for the military of ZAFT and you may be worried my views are towards War when they're completely far from it. I have been a doctor before and know full well the pain and loss of War. That's why...I wish to ask for a chance. That is all, I'll take no questions. "
       
      The speech was short but he had no desire to continue, having turned as a few people started to shout out questions and come close to him which made the soldiers and bodyguards start to move as they stopped them as he came out the door and into the main room of the Supreme Council building. Having sighed as he turned to look at the rock of the whale like creature that the first coordinator had brought back from space. Having smiled he opened his mouth and spoke:
       
      " Those who have a gift fail to understand the feelings of those who don't and those who don't envy those who do. "
