The story of Omar Denis Continues!Previous threads can be found here:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=OverhumanYou control the fate of an invoker named Omar Denis.After losing his parents due to circumstances beyond his control, Omar unlocked his latent potential as an Overhuman.Recruited by a mysterious woman in black, known as "Fauna," he entered into an organization known as "Renaissance."During the training of his powers, he absorbed the legend of the phoenix and shot up in danger levels among the organization, tested in the desert, he was allowed to live..Having found a risky partnership with the manipulative Violet, Omar seeks freedom from Renaissance.Last time:Omar confronted Violet on the abuse of her powers regarding Katie. Demanding truth and a real conversation, the woman gives an honest reply with an in-person meeting.Though at first it seems that she's using Katie as a human shield, Omar soon finds out that Violet brought her along to plead his help so that the three of them may leave.Violet explains that Katie's outgoing and bright persona is a facade that the organization has ordered Violet to put on Katie. The truth is, her training has caused her to suffer greatly.Agreeing with the partnership, Violet reverts the Gloomy Katie back to the bright and cheerful one.Now, Omar seeks to understand more of his mutating condition as well as seek aid from his senior peer... Fauna.
I raise my mutated right hand, I've noted that it functions perfectly as a human hand.. however its appearance is obviously strange, alien... it's been bothering me a bit."I wanted to ask you about this, it's stuck like this, I can't make it normal anymore."Fauna is silent for a moment."Such is the nature of shifting like this. You'll need to find some rea- Actually.... Just come to my room, we'll talk here.""What were you going to say?""Nothing, just come to my room okay? I'll be able to help you with that bullshit a lot better here.""Well, where is your room?""I'm in the northern wing of the facility. My quarters are officer-quarters, unlike scrub quarters like yours. Takes massive credits, and a bunch of high-rank missions. Anyway, get yer ass moving. I'll give you clearance. See you soon."I hadn't even known of the Officer Wing... She also seemed pretty eager to see me... At least, for Fauna..
Fauna's still on the line, I feel that if I could see her eyes, she'd be looking at me expectantly.> "Alright, I'll be there." Hang up.> Who's the scrub?"> Ask Questions on the line.(State)> Write in.

"I'll be right there." Giving her a sharp nod, I hear her chuckle at me."Hehe, good boy.. Now don't come here expecting that you're getting any, mmm heh..." She starts chuckling again.She drops the call before I can reply.Well, that came out of nowhere.. Then again, it's not like I don't already know that Fauna is some kind of out of it, the crazy bitch...I open the Console's map and find the route to the officer's quarters.I arrive at a gateway to the northern wing, the time is around 4:00p.m, and I'm feeling a bit hungry..The door is closed unlike other housing wingss, however I see that there's a slot for the cred card, and I insert it."Acknowledged, Omar Denis has been given clearance, please proceed and refrain from destructive behavior. Only one entry is permitted." a voice says from a nearby speaker.The door slides open and I see that it is quite thick, at least 5 inches. I wonder if I could even lay a dent in it with my mantis fist...I find that various areas are partitioned off and I make my way down the halls through the doors that remain open. Finally, I arrive at a door with "Fauna" Engraved on the outside. I slide my card through the door and nothing happens..After a moment, it slides open and I see Fauna standing at the frame of the door, the rest of her quarter barely visible, though I swear that I see a large number of plants in there."And here you are! Sure came running for me, hmmm, Omar?"> "Well, you are a pretty hot bitch that'd get me running anytime."> I just need to talk with you, and let's get to the point of this.> It's not really like I came running or anything, you called on me after all.> Write in.
(Sorry that took a bit, Comp decided to hiccup again, but it's back. If it happens again, I'll heads up on my phone)
>>23552961"Hey there pretty lady. Good to see you. You going to let me in or stand in the door all day?I thought to myself 'I have a freaky mantis arm, who'd know about those?' and well your name popped up. Any advice?"

"Hey there pretty lady. Good to see you. Going to let me in, or are we going to stand in the door all day?See, I thought to myself 'I have a freaky mantis arm, who'd know about those?' and well, your name popped up. Any advice?"I say casually as I flaunt around the mutated arm.I feel as though Fauna's rolling her eyes," Well, well, Of course you'd come to me for something like this, and of course you'd only call on me when you need me for something..." Fauna stands straight and backs into the door, gesturing her invitation."Come on in, I haven't got all day to deal with you.""Right then..."I enter into her chamber and she closes the door behind me.Her room is filled with various plants hooked up with respective light sources, most of them are flowers, though some look a bit more herby, aside from the setup, there's a bed and regular accommodations in her quarters, though the area of the floor is at least three times mine.> What's with the plants?> To the point, what do I do about this arm?> Ask her about what she thinks of Renaissance.

>>23553626No do that then ask about the plants. She needs to know we care
>>23553671plants first. we have to show the plants we care
"Have you considered changing your name to Flora? What's up with this?"Fauna chuckles beneath her mask and walks over to some of the plants, touching them gently,"When I was in the hospital, they gave me a plant to take care of." She presses a button on the side of the pot and an apparatus lightly sprinkles the soil of an orchid under a dim light, " I learned later that when you have something that depends on you.. You're more likely to keep fighting. I always liked the plant.. it was the only thing I liked about that place..."So Fauna has a bit of tenderness in her... for real."You're the first non-administrative Overhuman I've let in here, truthfully. Don't get full of yourself for it though." She turns to me and seems to stare, " You are my subordinate of sorts, and I suppose I can treat you like it now and then."Well, if that's so," I raise my right hand, the crustacean-like joints and shell apparent with the light of a nearby plant, she looks at it for a moment, even going to touch it with her armored-gloves."Hmm, Yes, I expected this would happen to you with time...

>>23553730"This place bugged? Safe to talk here?"If she says that it's safe to talk about then go for it."I'm aware of it, and more or less understand how it works. Nothing that it does is physically impossible, no upkeep or anything like that.The core idea of it is to change to circumstances, like growing a carapace when you beat me half to death, the main way I've used it is to take physical aspects of creatures and toss them onto myself, a forced evolution, like the girl who made the kraken but internally focused. Modifying my muscles, nervous system, all of that. Giving myself a shrimp arm.Most Invokers channel more metaphysical stuff, and we can do that, but we're specialized towards the more tangible aspects of it.I miss anything important?"
>>23553730> "no, I do not." see what she knows about it. also plants thign ignorance is cute. we want to stay on their good side for now
>>23553841As a man you has gotten laid by like 10 plants, I can confirm that plants find ignorance cute.Also seconding
>>23553959new directive is to get with flaura
I decide to feign my ignorance, to see if what she knows matches up with what I know."No, I do not. It just kind of happens for me and I'm not sure of how it works."Fauna closes in on me, I see my own reflection off of the black shell that is her face-mask.She just starts yelling."Are you for fucking real? Are you some kind of moronic ass-twit or something? Obviously you've been using your power, obviously you should have some kind of clue of it by now. I've watched your little displays with my Officer access." She keeps yelling." Your spars with Katie, Drake, the Kraken, the fuckup in the butterfly room. I cannot believe that some half-wit retard that's gone ahead through Magic theory hasn't learned a goddamn thing about his own power!" She's finally stopped yelling... I have a moment to interject...> Tell the truth.> Maintain ignorance, wait for her to explain.> Yell back at her (write in)> Write in)
>>23554170Well shit. She must not be part plant.Tell the truth
>>23554170Pull out a piece of paper and subtly motion for her to keep on yelling.Write "Is your room secured and not bugged?" on it.If she responds with Yes then tell the truth as shown >>23553833
>>23554170> maintain ignorancealso ask why the fuck she's so uptight about it.interesting that she's been watching us htough///
Well, that obviously pissed her off more than expected, I take a step back only to feel her hand on my shirt, keeping me from pulling away. Flinching a bit, I give in,"Okay, Okay... Look..""What?!""I know a lot... I think.."She lets go and stands straight, she seems to have calmed down. She walks over to a table near her bed in the corner of the room with a gesture for me to follow," Yelling's bad for the plants, come over here..."I follow her and after taking a seat at the table, I note that it's a lot like a desk."Umm, do you happen to have a pen and paper?""Do I look like a freaking office supply?" She opens a drawer and pulls out a pad of paper and a pen, handing them to me."Um.. thanks."She doesn't reply.I write out my question, I'm concerned about whether this place is bugged.I slide the pad over to her and she doesn't look at it, instead, touching a part on her helm, and then another around her neck in key locations. The helm undoes itself along the back of her neck, breaking a power lock with the rest of her suit. She removes the piece and I see her face again.Once more, I take not of the small horns curling out from the front of her head and to the back of her head. Her features are sharp and hard, the angularity of her cheekbones looking quite fierce. Her eyes are cat-like, the schlera mostly black. Her ears are short with pointed tips and she has black blotches of what appears to be like either charred or rotten flesh. Her hair is done up, into a tight bun for her helm, however she undoes that as well, letting perhaps her one human-like redeeming feature, a black waterfall of hair fall over her face."You've seen me before, and so you see me again." She speaks with a voice that still sounds almost seductive and husky, when she's not yelling at least. I notice that she has canine teeth that protrude from her lips like tusks as well...She looks to the note, and then back to me," No, it is not. You may speak freely here.
"My power, I'm aware of it, and more or less understand how it works. Nothing that it does is physically impossible, no upkeep or anything like that.The core idea of it is to change to circumstances, like growing a carapace when you beat me half to death, the main way I've used it is to take physical aspects of creatures and toss them onto myself, a forced evolution, like the woman that made the Kraken, but self- focused. Modifying my muscles, nervous system, all of that. Giving myself a shrimp arm.Most Invokers channel more metaphysical stuff, and we can do that, but we're specialized towards the more tangible aspects of it.I miss anything important?"Fauna scowls, or is that a smile?"You've got the gist of it..." She touches my mutated arm again, and stares into my eyes with her cat-like ones, a sick yellow."For this however, your body's used it enough that you subconsciously feel you should keep it, or at least a part of the form. You adapt, and taking steps backward to your human-state isn't adapting, it's regressing." She pulls her hand back and looks over to her plants."You'll become less and less human over time if you keep using your power... It's for advancing, to keep on going into whatever situation you need to. The best I could do for you is cut the arm off and let you hope it regrows as something normal."She looks back to me," Speaking to you about this in person is the only way I'd want to tell you this... This power makes our humanity slip away. . . Truthfully.. Before coming here, I had some DNA-work done.. My genome is unreadable. The doc that looked at it can't make sense of it... and what he can, it shows that at that time, years ago, I was only a 10% match with human."My eyes go wide and I look to my arm. Is she... is she saying that this will be irreversible? That.. I won't even be human by the end of next year? or even, I'm not a human now?
Being an Overhuman is one thing, but this... I may not be able to return to anything resembling a normal life...I am...> Pissed off! Why the hell do I need to deal with this?!> Not all that upset. I had my suspicions that I wouldn't be able to stay a human anyway..> I cry, goddamnit, why's this got to happen to me?!>Write in.And then...> Ask about what she thinks of Renaissance.> Tell Fauna about Violet's plan.> Write in.
>>23554847[X] Not all that upset. I had my suspicions that I wouldn't be able to stay a human anyway..It's still functional, not that bad. Strange, but still pretty cool.[X] Tell Fauna about Violet's plan.
>>23554861Not upset, ask what she thinks of Renaissance
>>23554847> not upsetDNA becomes nonhuman = unprotected sex but seriously, humanity isn't what's important, it's just getting whatever job needs doing done. if i can't be a human and do that at the same time then so be it> ask fauna how she feels about renaisancedon;t let her onto the plan yet though
>>23554812>> Not all that upset. I had my suspicions that I wouldn't be able to stay a human anyway..>>23554847> Ask about what she thinks of Renaissance.
It was a surprise... but it's not something that I'm inherently concerned about... There's not really anything all that great about being human after all...Humans are just another animal that have become viscous animals through their divine spiritual and intellectual development... Then again... couldn't this just as well be said as a literal form of that?I'm unnaturally calm at this as I flex the individual joints of the crustacean-like hand. It's numb, and hard. I still feel the warmth of my own body in the appendage. This isn't really all that bad.Looking to Fauna, I find her face assessing mine somewhat. Her eyes look at me lazily, almost like someone that's tired or doesn't really care, "You're awfully calm about this. I think I panicked for at least ten minutes after I murdered the man that told me that.."I wince at that, I need to remember that this is Fauna, and that she's.. "off.""Well then, anything else you want?""I wanted to ask you what you think of Renaissance... I'm not sure if I entirely like it here..."Fauna raises what might be considered an eyebrow, "Oh? Well, I figured that might happen. It's why I told you to keep your power hidden. If you want to leave, go ahead. So long as you aren't caught, they can't do anything to stop you."I stare at her intently, she sidestepped that question," What do you think of Renaissance? It... matters to me."Fauna looks at me without saying anything for a moment, leaning back, she speaks her mind," This place is full of shit, it treats people like us as if we are disposable guinea pigs or trained dogs... However... I've been working on being recognized here. I want to fix this place... However.""However?"Fauna glares at me with a bit of annoyance," However, I am only one person. And rank within this facility or others doesn't mean shit when the people pulling the strings are wealthy bigots."
> Tell her about Violet and her plan.>Ask more about what Fauna's been doing to change Renaissance.> Take my leave, this is enough for now.> Write in.

>>23555217Ask more about it
>>23555207>>Ask more about what Fauna's been doing to change Renaissance.
"What have you been doing to change Renaissance?"This surprises me, based on her behavior, I had her figured for someone that really didn't care about what was going on around herFauna gets up and walks over to her plants as I regard her while seated. She touches one of the leaves of an Aloe plant."Truthfully, it hasn't felt like much... I've gotten the supervisor to propose less violent missions from our benefactors, made in-facility jobs for less combat oriented Overs to feel like they're worth something, and spared your worthless maggot-brained life from execution.""You.. what do you mean?""The supervisor was convinced that you should be executed for the safety of this facility, and the safety of humans. I convinced him that you may still be compliant. I vouched for you." > Tell her about Violet and her plan. >"Thank you, I... am grateful." > Take my leave, this is enough for now. > Write in.
>>23555389>>"Thank you, I... am grateful."but the still put a chip in my head> Tell her about Violet and her plan.
>>23555389Thanks, I-I apreciate it fauna-sama"but what do you think of some more...drastic measures?"
>>23555449Meaning don't full on say itBe subtle
