In the far future, biotechnology advances by leaps and bounds, creating stunning achievements in medical, civil, and military applications. Illness becomes a thing of the past, and genetic modification is as commonplace as cosmetic surgery.However, like all great advances, unchecked progress and experimentation has led to abuse and corruption. Ultra powerful megacorporations that monopolized the latest biotech have risen to be the great powers of the age, waging secret wars of sabotage, espionage, and deceit to get ahead of each other.In order to fuel their rampant growth, megacorps develop lethal diseases and viruses, horrific bio-organic abominations, and ever more exotic genetic modifications to both sell to the highest bidder and unleash upon each other.The rampant proliferation of bioweapons, and the need to contain them, has given rise to a new profession, the BIOWEAPON HUNTER.---Now with a new OP!Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Bioweapon%20Hunter%20QuestOther Quests: https://pastebin.com/eTUmEmRb---You are LEWIS, a Hunter specializing in hunting down biological threats with your T-Doll companion HK!And just like that, the party was over. A song was sun, a giant Umbrella cake was cut up and distributed among the guests, and Oswell Spencer himself showed up briefly to the party for the benefit of the guests. Though from you remember, Spencer looked like he was asleep through the whole thing. You figure that he didn't think much of the people there supposedly in his honor. Meanwhile, you were completely wiped out from the events of the party, not only from the general lingering and wandering around, but also the little impromptu job you did for Lucina as a favor to nab an intruder. Once the festivities officially died down and the guests began to leave and disperse you...>Were one of the first out the door. >Decided to stick around a little longer.>You... actually don't remember too well.>Other
>>3125766>>Decided to stick around a little longer.
>>3125766>>Decided to stick around a little longer. At the rate Lewis works with Lucina, and how amazingly things have gone so far whenever he has taken up police affairs, he at least deserves a tiny desk and chair in the corner of the police station.
>>3125766>>You... actually don't remember too well.
>>3125766>Were one of the first out the door.Get away from Umbrella.
>>3125766>>You... actually don't remember too well.Mystery box!
>>3125766>>Were one of the first out the door.
>>3125766>Decided to stick around a little longer.
>>3125766Well, you figured you could at least stay a little bit longer. See if there was anything else to do. Artya and Hank were among the group to leave first. Looked like Hank finally reached his limit and was largely passed out, and Artya volunteered to get him back home. So you didn't have to worry about them for the moment. Carol had also left, having been booked for other social appointments later tonight. You weren't worried too much about her, either. As far as you know, both Lucina and Nemo were still at the bar, probably hoping a bit of alcohol will help get them to open up a bit more. There sibling.... rivalry? Coexistence? Whatever it was, certainly cause a lot of pressures in their interactions from what you remembered. The Boss was apparently still hitting it up with the big boy execs upstairs. Who knew who exceedingly dangerous jobs she was arranging for you now.All the while, HK stands loyally besides you, keeping a close eye on the guests that begin filtering out the door. >See how Lucina and Nemo are doing.>Maybe meet some of those Umbrella bigwigs.>Just hang out with HK.>Other
>>3125899>>See how Lucina and Nemo are doing.
>>3125899>>Just hang out with HK.Does she wanna try a beach party next time?

>>3125899>>Just hang out with HK
>>3125899"Come on, let's go check on Lucina and Nemo." You say to HK as you head over to the bar. "Affirmative." HK nods as she loyally follows you. "I have a query, though.""Go ahead." You nod as you start heading off. "Based on my observations of Lucina and Nemo, the two of them don't seem to spend very much time together." HK states. "Which is a contrast to you and your sibling Carol. ""Yeah, well, I think I mentioned this before, but Lucina and Nemo did not exactly have the most normal of upbringings." You frown. "Please elaborate." HK continues.Ah well.... is it really right to talk about this to HK?>You might as well tell her.>This is probably something she should ask Lucina and Nemo.>Other
>>3126078>You might as well tell her.
>>3126078>>This is probably something she should ask Lucina and Nemo.>They have a complicated upbringing
>>3126078>You might as well tell her
>>3126078>>This is probably something she should ask Lucina and Nemo.
>>3126078>>You might as well tell her.Let's face it, Lewis' childhood friend group was only normal on the surface.
>>3126078>>This is probably something she should ask Lucina and Nemo.Explain to our newest friend what your childhood was like.
>>3126078>>>You might as well tell her.
>>3126112>>3126102>Hanging out in the badass treehouse fort that Uncle Leo built, going on awesome adventures (though mundane in hindsight), and competing to see who would be leader
>>3126078"Well, let's just say Lucina and Nemo weren't equal from birth." You say and pause. Actually, out of your little group, NONE of you were really normal at all. "Is that so?" HK pauses. "Yeah." You nod. "We didn't know it at first, but Lucina had been... 'modified' by her mom at birth to be perfect in every way. Her DNA was manipulated while still in the womb.""I see." HK nods. "That would explain her physical prowess without the use of biomodifications." "And Nemo? Well, she's just all natural born and bred. Not a single altered gene in her." You continue. "Though she apparently inherited her mom's intelligence.""Of course. She's done very well to keep me maintained." HK nods. "Why exactly were they produced so differently?""Really weird parents." You sigh. "Their mom insisted on modifying them at birth, while their dad was against it. When it turned out that she was carrying twins, they agreed on a compromise.""Then..." HK pauses again. "Then I hypothesize that Nemo suffers from an inferiority complex that affected her personal interactions with Lucina?""Bingo." You nod. You remember the more innocent times when you were kids, before you knew about all these things like biomods and genes and how none of you were created equal in the most literal of senses. Hell, when you found about Lucina's... status, you were->Angry beyond belief. >Extremely envious of what she had. >In awe of her.>Other
>>3126230>>Angry beyond belief.
>>3126230>>Extremely envious of what she had.
>>3126230>Angry but also Confused
>>3126230>>Angry beyond belief. >>Extremely envious of what she had.Probably a bit of both if Lewis saw Lucina as a Rival that he needed to surpass.
>>3126230>Angry beyond belief. >Extremely envious of what she had.
>>3126230>Extremely envious of what she had.
>>3126230>>Extremely envious of what she had.So cool
>>3126230>>Angry beyond belief
>>3126235>>3126239>>3126251>>3126258>>3126312>>3126328What's up with the anger? This seems at most something like Coordinators vs Naturals in Gundam Seed, and in the end the parent is simply giving their child the best support they can in life from the very start. It's not like Lucina's life is controlled or made use of via design by her mother anyways, so I don't see the reason for anger at all. No one can decide how they're born after all, only how they live their life.
>>3126369Because it's a strong emotion and we probably got too caught up in some of the little competitions when we were young.
>>3126384>>3126369Maybe Alice or his Father set him straight by saying that he always stepped up to the plate no matter how many times he lost, and were proud of him for doing so.
>>3126369She was likely better then us at everything no matter what we did and it probably felt like she was cheating the whole time when we found out.Also on another note its probably is how ST-AR feels to HK
>>3126369Also we were a kid at the time. Think like a kid, not an adult.
>>3126230"A mix of being super angry and super jealous." You admit. "I mean, how else are you supposed to react to knowing that one of your best friends is objectively better than you in every way?""It would be frustrating, I assume." HK nods. "Something like, if I were to confront a model superior to me.""Yeah, pretty close to that." You nod. "And well, I eventually got over it but things were never the same. No matter how much Lucina tried to play it off, it was always in the back of our heads.""Yes, it does shed light on the situation now." HK nods, and goes quiet again. Somehow, though, you get the feeling there's an air of... awkwardness surrounding HK. Was something on her mind, too? It's not like she could refuse you if you asked her. >Probe HK for more info.>Best to leave her along.>Other
>>3126424>Just ask her from a friend's point of view instead of a owner, let her know that she doesn't have to comply with answering the question if she does not want to.

>>3126424I'll support >>3126428
>>3126424backing >>3126428as well
>>3126424"Hey, HK, is there something wrong?" You ask. "You've been acting kinda off lately.""All my functions are operating at peak efficiency." HK replies. "There are no issues with my operation.""No, I mean, well, what you feeling right now?" You ask.HK is silent again."Is that an order to reply?" She asks cautiously."No, just a question." You say simply. "You're free to answer it or not."HK pauses again, as if calculating all the possible outcomes before finally nodding. "I suppose you can say I have a... concern." She admits. "I am currently the most advanced T-Doll in existence, but my event prediction software has already concluded that a more advanced model will be developed at some point in the future. If such a time comes, what would become of me? It's something by prediction software has spent numerous cycles processing but has so far failed to come up with an answer."Huh, so it looked like even T-Dolls could have worries and inferiority complexes. Perhaps HK was a little too advanced for her own good. >The fact you're thinking about these things means you're already at the top.>We'll keep you up to date, no matter how much it costs.>None of us are concerned about your particular specs.>Other
>>3126563>>None of us are concerned about your particular specs.
>>3126563>>The fact you're thinking about these things means you're already at the top.
>>3126563Well, firstly you are more than just a piece of hardware. You are a character. Your value extends past your technical specifications.Secondly you are learning and developing independently of what programmers and engineers cook up with. And even if they come up with a technical improvement, you can follow a different avenue of growth in parallel. You remember our interactions with older t-dolls and my advice not to underestimate them.Thirdly you can get upgrades if you want to when they’re available and you feel so inclined.But bottom line is, I wouldn’t put that much stock into version number.
>>3126618>>3126563Supporting because I am a sucker for speeches.
>>3126563"HK, none of us are concerned about your specs." You grin. "You're one of us, and that goes beyond whatever a piece of paper says you are, are what parts happen to be built into you. You don't need to worry about us leaving you behind.""I see." HK nods. "Thank you for your assurance."And with that, HK seems to move a little quicker and with more purpose. Seems like she was already starting to feel better. She certainly was a piece of work, you figure. At this point, you've already reached the banquet hall, which was largely empty at this point. You could see the maid Dolls already clearing the table, picking up trash, and generally cleaning up the entire place. You turn your gaze to the bar, where you see Lucina and Nemo still there, their backs turned to you. You weren't quite sure what they were saying, but you could definitely see quite a few empty glasses cluttering the bar in front of them."I'm detecting elevated blood alcohol levels in their bodies." HK warns, her eyes glowing. Is that so...>Go and greet them.>Try to eavesdrop on them.>Other

Rolled 17, 14 = 31 (2d20)>>3126652...
>>3126691"Hey, Lucina, Nemo! How are you two doing right now?" You ask as you greet them. "Nemo here has been a devious little liar." Lucina chuckles as she pats her sister on the shoulder. "She can hold her drink pretty well! We're already a bottle in and she's still lucid!""I just wanna dieeeeeeee...." Nemo groans, her tiny body swaying back and forth. "Not yet, we still have to test your limits!" Lucina chuckles. "Your jusht doing thish because you wanna make me duuuuuuumb!" Nemo slurs. "Well I ain't giving you the satisfaction!" And then, she paradoxically downs another glass of rum. "See!?" She exclaims. "It's nice to see Nemo doing so well." Lucina muses as she turns to you now. "I'm actually surprised you managed to get her to come out to a social event like this.""Well, it took a bit of convincing." You shrug. "Yeah cuz you KIDNAPPED me!" Nemo blurts.It was a really good thing nobody else was around to hear and misunderstand that. "Well, drastic measures for drastic issues was always how Lewis handled things." Lucina nods. "You blood alcohol levels are highly elevated above the normal limit." HK points out. "I would suggest you refrain from any further drinking.""Hah, I don't even feel a thing." Lucina frowns."Because of that super liver of yours." You say."Don't even remind me." Lucina rolls her eyes. "Heeeeeeeeey." Nemo reaches an arm out and pulls you in, sloppily trying to jam a glass of rum into your mouth. "No fair that you get to stay outta all this..."Well, the party's pretty much over...>You might as well indulge yourself.>You're in no mood to get hammered in Lucina and Nemo's presence.>Other
>>3126685>how cool Lewis has beenOh dear god, we better not have Loki pop up whenever Lewis does something really cool.

Rolled 7 (1d20)>>3126708"Aw hell, might as well, I guess." You sigh as you take the glass."That's the spirit!" Lucina smiles."As long as you don't throw me into jail for being drunk and disorderly." You grunt. "I totally promise." Lucina nods. "All right." You nod as you down the glass...>Roll 1d20

>>3126778You feel the rum burn its way down your throat, but like last time, you don't let it overwhelm you.Nemo, however, has finally hit her limit. Her eyes flutter and her head falls against your shoulder as she starts snoring. "Oh my gosh." Lucina whispers. "I can move you if you would like." HK offers.>Sure thing. I need to talk to Lucina privately anyways.>Nah, this is fine.>Other
>>3126792I wouldn’t count on much “privately” in this mansion. Let’s retire.

>>3126792>>Nah, this is fine.
>>3126792>Nah, this is fine.
>>3126792"Nah, this is fine." You tell HK, and you let Nemo continue resting her head on your shoulder as you glance at Lucina. "The other shoulder's still free, you know." "Oh please." Lucina rolls her eyes. "I'm not THAT far gone.""Couldn't hurt to try." "Sleeping on one's shoulder does not seem to be the ideal way to rest and recover energy." HK points out. "That's not what it's-" You sigh. "Nevermind.""Ha, the more time I'm around HK, the more I've come to realize how... grounded Star is." Lucina grins. "She's rather good at recognizing nuance."At that point, you see HK freeze up for a moment at the mention of ST-AR. You recall the two T-Dolls talking privately on Mom's ranch. What exactly was going on between them...?>Ask HK about it.>It can wait.>Other
>>3126820>Ask HK about it.We've drunk away our sense of tact.

>>3126820>Ask HK about it
>>3126820"Hey, HK." You frown. "Is there something going on between you and ST-AR?""Why would you ask a query like that?" HK pauses, almost as if she was hesitating. "Just seems like you act a bit odd whenever she's around or she's mentioned." You note. "Can you explain that?""ST-AR is simply an old pattern T-Doll." HK remarks. "There's nothing particularly noteworthy about her besides her early prototype status." HK remarks simply. "Well, she's not wrong." Lucina shrugs. "ST-AR is basically one of the very first T-Dolls ever built."You get the odd feeling that HK wasn't telling the whole story. >Nah, HK wouldn't lie to you. >Press her a little more on it.>Other
>>3126855>Ask her about it in privateIt seems like the kind of thing that would be a sensitive topic for her.

>>3126896You let it pass. You don't think HK has it in her to actively lie to you. If it was serious, then she'd say so. "Oh right, ST-AR is here, right?" You ask Lucina."Yeah, she's helping with security outside." Lucina nods. "Though, since the party is winding down, I suppose we can link up with her if you want. HK remains silent.>Sure, it wouldn't hurt to say hello.>Nah, I don't want to bother her.>Other
>>3126901>>Sure, it wouldn't hurt to say hello.

>>3126901"Sure, it wouldn't hurt to say hello." You say. "All right then." Lucina nods as she takes out her phone. "Hey Star, how about you meet us at the bar? Don't worry, the others can handle the rest."Scant seconds later, ST-AR calmly and somewhat casually walks into the banquet hall. The maid Dolls turn their heads to investigate the new arrival, but quickly return to their tasks when they deem her a non-threat."Chief." ST-AR nods and then turns to you and HK. "Lewis. HK. Good to see you again.""ST-AR." HK says simply and curtly. "I see you all are enjoying yourselves." ST-AR notes as her eyes pan across you, Lucina, and the sleeping Nemo. "Am I gonna have to chaperone?""I'm fiiiiiiine." Lucina assures her. "Uh huh." ST-AR says simply. Not really convinced. >So how was your night?>Anything change for you after Lucina's promotion?>Is it true you're the first T-Doll?>Other

>>3126958"So, how was your night?" You ask ST-AR."Oh, you know, just standing out in the bitter cold for the past several hours staring into empty forest." ST-AR shrugs. "Not sure why anyone would want to build their mansion out here.""Mr. Spencer is a man who values his privacy and security." Lucina explains. "Yeah, well, that was pretty much my night." ST-AR says as she casually twirls a finger through her faded pink hair. "I suppose I should be glad I'm incapable of freezing. Sucks for the other guys, though." "Such is the price of being a public servant." Lucina sighs."Anyways, the rest of the squad is starting to pack up." ST-AR remarks. "Are you coming with us?""Ah, well-" Lucina pauses.>Yeah, we should be leaving, too.>You can go on ahead. >You can stick around with us if you want.>Other
>>3126972>>Yeah, we should be leaving, too.

"Star, you can go on ahead with the others.""Whatever you say, Chief." ST-AR shrugs and walks off, HK keeping a close eye on her as she does. "So, what exactly did you have in mind?" Lucina asks as she turns back to you. "Well...">Roll 1d20

>>3126985And so time passes, and you and Lucina continue to down drinks, leaving you more than a little buzzed as you try to prove you can beat Lucina in an alcohol race. HK meanwhile keeps a watchful eye on you all, to ensure no trouble is caused.However, HK is not the only person to be watching you. "Ah, Lewis. It's nice to see you again." Dr. Vahlen says as she sits at the bar on the opposite end of Nemo. "There's quite a lot to catch up on.">And that's it for tonight! We'll continue the thread on Saturday so don't miss it!
>>3126994well then. Hi Doc, got more work for us?
>>3126994See you next time, boss!
>>3126994Ah, the good Doctor. I wonder what she’s up to.Thanks for the ride OP!

>>3126994"Doctor Vahlen." You pause as you see the Umbrella scientist casually sitting at the bar just across from the sleeping Nemo. "To what do we owe the honor?""Please, I can't come by to properly thank the man and machine who saved my life?" Dr. Vahlen smiles. "We didn't exactly leave off on the most convenient of terms, after all." That's right, the last time you saw her was in the evac chopper, when your body was tearing itself apart from your magical awakening. >Well, I really appreciate you going through all this trouble.>That's... not all, is it?>Other
>>3128341>>Well, I really appreciate you going through all this trouble.

>>3128341"Well, I really appreciate you going through all this trouble." You say. HK silently nods. "I am aware your company has already been paid, but I suppose a round on me would be well deserved." Vahlen says as she nods at the bartender Doll, who heads off to grab a fresh bottle of whiskey. "Was this the mission where you nearly got yourself killed?" Lucina narrows her eyes. "Uh, yeah, the one in Antarctica." You nod. "Dr. Vahlen here was the VIP we were extracting.""I see." Lucina continues to give Vahlen a suspicious look. "And while we were here, I wanted to talk to you about another matter pertaining to that operation." Vahlen glances at Lucina and leans in a little closer. "Privately, if possible. It's rather urgent.">Sure thing.>You can say it in front of Lucina. >Other
>>3128442>>Sure thing.She's gonna ask who our parents were, isn't she?>>3128408>make one for heI don't think we'll be handle another person like Carol in the world.
>>3128442"Sure thing." You nod and turn to Lucina. "Hey, you think you can take care of Nemo here for a second?""Right." Lucina nods as she gets up and gently picks up Nemo, getting her off your shoulder. "You sure this is all right?""Yeah, don't worry." You assure her. "Okay, we'll be waiting in the hall, then." Lucina says as she takes her leave with Nemo. "Now then." Vahlen turns to you, now with a new look in her eyes. The kind you've seen in Egan and Nemo's from time to time, when they were really engrossed with their work. "I would like to talk to you about your bloodwork..."Uh oh.Shit, that's right, you had allowed Vahlen to scan your body to diagnose your condition. Did... did she find something out?"I vas going through all of the data when I came across the strangest thing." Vahlen's finger begins tapping on the bar. "I found strands of Invader DNA in your body.""Isn't that normal?" You begin to sweat. "I mean, all modern biomods are derived from Invader research, right?""Correct, but most of the time the Invader DNA is incomplete, broken. A result of our processes to make the compatible with our own biology. But in your body, you have complete, pure strands of Invader DNA in your very blood! It's all quite intriguing."You see an all too familiar shine in Vahlen's eyes. The shine of a scientist on the brink of a new discovery.>Try to deny it. Maybe it was a mistake.>Admit it.

>>3128532"I think you might be mistaken." You grimace."Oh?" Vahlen raises an eyebrow as she casually sips at her glass of whiskey. "I'd love to hear your hypothesis, then.">Roll 1d20+2

>>3128609>>3128615Lewis was so drunk he forgot he wasn't suppose to be this smart.
>>3128604"We were basically running around in a dead Invader's guts, and I got bitten by an Invader-mutated snake that, might I remind you, you created yourself." You say coolly. "Honestly, I'm not surprised I didn't grow extra arms or a head or anything.""Hmmm, you do have a point." Vahlen nods. "Perhaps the data was corrupted by outside factors. Perhaps I was mistaken." "Well, even the best of us are prone to it." You respond, unsure of whether to feel relief yet or not."Still, as an opinion of a medical professional, I'd advise against you be careful about distributing your medical information." Vahlen casually. "After all, there are many others out there aren't motivated by merely acquiring knowledge.""I'll be sure to remember that." You nod. There's a brief, silence, as if you get the feeling Vahlen is waiting for you to make the next move.>You should be going now. >Ask what she knows about Wesker. >Ask how she's doing in the company right now.>Other
>>3128646>>Ask how she's doing in the company right now.

>>3128646>Ask what she knows about Wesker.
>>3128646"So, uh, how are you doing in the company now, on account of your lab getting blown up and all?" You ask, genuinely curious. Umbrella guarded its internal workings very carefully, so not much about the actual day to day operations was really known. "Ah, well, I've unfortunately been temporarily reassigned to the cosmetics division until a new posting opens up." Vahlen sighs. "It's quite dull work, though I suppose it's better than freezing to death in Antarctica.""What's so bad about it? Lots of people willing to pay to look younger than they actually are." You point out. "My interest is not in money, but in advancement." Vahlen tuts. "Scientific advancement. There's still so much potential locked away in Invader DNA that we simply do not understand!"Vahlen downs the rest of her glass of whiskey and slams it down. "Though it frustrates me that my superiors don't see it the same way."Well, it looked like Vahlen was on the verge of blurting out some internal company gossip. Potentially valuable information...>That's a shame.>Why don't you go on...>Other
>>3128716>>Why don't you go on...
>>3128716>>Why don't you go on...>Offer her a drink, have her relax while she vents.

Rolled 5, 3, 12 = 20 (3d20)>>3128716...
>>3128753"Why don't you go on...." You say as you slide a fresh glass to Vahlen. "Hmph." Vahlen huffs as she gladly accepts the offered drink. "Marcus, Birkin, Ashford, those men are all fools, looking only to weaponize and profit off of whatever they find." "Seems to be doing well enough for them." You point out, considering Umbrella's dominance.""Mark my words, their Tyrant program will run into a dead end very soon." Vahlen grumbles. "I've seen the development history. No finesse, no imagination.""And you think you can do better?" You raise an eyebrow."Nonsense!" Vahlen gulps down her glass. "I will do it the correct way! Using Invader DNA to unlock the potential of the human genome!"Vahlen then pauses, her face flushed already. Guess she was a bit of a lightweight. "Oh my, I apologize." She pants. "I'm just a bit dizzy right now.""Her blood alcohol levels are rising rapidly." HK warns.>Get Vahlen to keep talking.>Feed more drinks to Vahlen. >You've learned enough.>Other
>>3128773>You've learned enough.
>>3128773>>You've learned enough.>>OtherOffer her a ride home.I want to know more, but I'm wary of pushing Vahlen to spill Umbrella Secrets in Umbrella Mansion.
>>3128773>>Get Vahlen to keep talking.Hmm, why does she think Invader DNA is the key to unlocking Human genome potential?
>>3128773>>You've learned enough.
>>3128786We could feed the idea of good old companion juice instead.
>>3128773>>3128784I rather not have her black out.One more for the road and offer her a ride.

>>3128840>YY is for Y Not?
>>3128840>>YIt also kinda matches our current look, though we're missing our cape (Carol is gonna maybe kill us for ruining it)>
>>3128840>YPiggy back the cute scientist
>>3128840YIf we tuck her in, we'd be probably going way too far.
>>3128866How about having HK tuck her in?
>>3128840"So, um, Doctor, will you be needing a ride home or anything?" You ask. "Oh dear, giving a lady a proposition like that...!" Vahlen giggles, her face still flushed. "Fortunately, we already have arrangements for that." A slimy and familiar voice says from behind. You swivel around in your chair to see Wesker standing there, just as smug as ever."You have no need to worry. All of our staff's transportation needs have already been arranged by the company." Wesker says simply. "And since the festivities have already officially ended, I will have to ask you to leave the premises."As Wesker says this, all of the maid Dolls and butler Tyrants turn their gazes toward you in unison. HK immediately tenses up, getting ready to go into battle mode if needed.>All right, we're going.>Being a little ungrateful here, huh?>Other
>>3128905>All right, we're going.
>>3128905>>All right, we're going.Sure...
>>3128905>>All right, we're going.
>>3128905I kind of want to make Vahlen swoon a bit more and to kind of irk Wesker a bit.>That's fine, Consider this Pro-bono after all I'm sure the Doctor doesn't mind having her feet swept by a mysterious gentleman. Let Vahlen let her hair down a bit.
>>3128925Yeah sure, second. Otherwise I suggest telling Vahlen if she ever needs us to call, we'll give her a good rate. Make it seem like we were talking business.
>>3128905>>3128925Eh, supporting this.Give her a ride back and it’s not like they don’t have trackers on her.And I kind of want to make her smile a bit that’s not entirely science related and at least have a illusion of freedom.I imagine like Lucina she doesn’t get out much, or is much worse so it’s amusing to me having been ‘picked up’ only if it’s just taking her home.
>>3128905Changing >>3128915To>>3128925Should we give Vahlen our mask as a calling card?
>>3128930Well give her our business card. Don’t quite trust her (a bit drunk after all) to remember.Maybe add a cheesy line or two on the back, to have her panic a bit wondering wtf just happened the next morning
>>3128936>Should we give Vahlen our mask as a calling card?Vahlen just got done telling us not to leave our DNA all over the place.
>>3128936Depends on how she takes the ride back? I could go for that. I wonder if she ever has been propositioned at all? At least that's not work related.
>>3128940Our mask has DNA on it? Unless there is some dead skin or facial hair on it?
>>3128946iirc, that mask is made from Lewis' own biomass.
>>3128946The mask is made from Lewis' biomass. It's pretty much a piece of him.
>>3128950Oh shit really, then nvm. Give her a rose and business card then..
>>3128952Yeah, as i said nvm. Just grab a stray rose or nice looking flower and business card.Maybe ham up a small act too.
>>3128905All right, the votes seem pretty mixed, so we'll do a quick runoff just to confirm things!>All right we're going.>That's fine, Consider this Pro-bono after all I'm sure the Doctor doesn't mind having her feet swept by a mysterious gentleman.

>>3128958>>That's fine, Consider this Pro-bono after all I'm sure the Doctor doesn't mind having her feet swept by a mysterious gentleman.Lewis should seriously start sketching his own magical outfit for fun.
>>3128958>>All right we're going.

>>3128905>All right, we're going
>>3128963What should be our trade mark?Rose Petals?HK Shining spotlight at our dramatic entrances?Sentai Poses?
>>3128958>>All right, we're going. Just figured it'd be polite to offer.
>>3128975Crystal Dust?>>3128968>>3128969We should also try to get Carol in on this effort. Maybe she'll know something about how to make a statement?I'm thinking we have 3 different outfits for different levels of protection.>Light: made from just Lewis' regular crystal silk and looks like a standard magical outfit>Medium: with a bit of crystal armor plating and silk>Heavy: a full suit of heavy crystal
>>3128975We also better disguise HK as well.
>>3128982Light: Magical Girl Posing?Medium: Jojo Posing?Heavy: Saint Seiya Posing?
>>3128985I kind of want to give her cat ears and a tail, wearing a cute animal maskAlong with a fabulous outfit of coarse
>>3128987Lewis and HK should just dress up as Phantom Thieves at this point.
Rolled 10, 5, 16 = 31 (3d20)>>3128958"That's fine." You shrug, giving a quick glance to Vahlen. "Consider this pro-bono. After all, I'm sure the Doctor doesn't mind having her feet swept by a mysterious gentleman."Honestly at this point you were saying all this partially just to piss Wesker off as much as you wanted to get Vahlen to loosen up a bit more. >Roll 1d20

>>3128982I'd be okay with pretty much any outfit so long as Lewis gets to wear a cool mask or helmet.

>>3129013Oh yeah, the reroll, we still have one per session. But seriously, using it on this?
>>3129014One per session.>>3129016Nothing better to use it on. Better then letting it go to waste.

>>3129041How cool can Lewis possibly get?
>>3129045We have to take Lucina and Nemo home too.>>3129048Not cool enough since we had to manipulate physics to think up a good oneliner.
>>3129048That Vahlen, Hk, and Lucina need to cuddle up to him to preserve body heat.Also Carol
>>3129040"Haaaaa, don't be such a spoilsport, Wesker!" Vahlen giggles as she intervenes. "This IS the same Hunter who so loyally rescued me from Antarctica! He shouldn't be a security threat!""Hmmmm." Wesker glances at you, and then to Vahlen. "If you insist, Doctor. Just please remember that you're still representing the company." And with that, Wesker backs off, almost miraculously. You're a bit surprised, honestly. "Lewis, leaving now would be the prudent course of action." HK warns. Sure enough, the mansion Dolls and Tyrants were still staring at you like potential intruders."Yeah... you're right, HK." You nod as you take Vahlen's hand. "Come on, Doctor, let's go.""Of course, of course!" Vahlen chuckles.>Leave with the Boss.>Leave with Lucina.>Leave on your own. >Other
>>3129054>>Leave with Lucina.>>OtherBring Nemo too. We're responsible for them.

>>3129054>Leave with Lucina and Nemo
>>3129054>Leave on your own.
>>3129054"Hey! Lucina! Wait up!" You say as you guide Vahlen along. "Hm? What's up?" Lucina asks as she carries her sister towards the front door."Mind if we hitch a ride with you back to the city?" You ask."I suppose, but-" Lucina pauses when she sees Vahlen in tow and shifts to a low hiss. "Lewis, what are you thinking?!""What?" You blink. "Hm? Is there a problem?" Vahlen asks clumsily. "I shouldn't be surprised you didn't think this through." Lucina groans. "You get an Umbrella scientist drunk, and you're asking the chief of the RPD to personally escort her back. Do you have any idea what that might look like?">I was under the impression you didn't care what others thought. >Just escorting a lady home. That's all.>It's a chance to get a little dirt on Umbrella, you know.>Other
>>3129070>>Just escorting a lady home. That's all.
>>3129070>Just escorting a lady home. That's all.
>>3129070>>Just escorting a lady home. That's all.I just wanted to make sure you I didn't leave you here thinking I'd abandoned you and Nemo.
>>3129070>Do you have any idea what that might look like?Also, is Lucina suggesting a threesome? Because I mean, if her and Vehlen are both cool with it.
>>3129070"I'm just escorting a lady home. That's all." You say simply."Uh huh. Fine. Let's go." Lucina's eyebrow twitches. Did you make her angry somehow? Lucina leads you out the front doors, where a STARS helicopter is ready and waiting. ST-AR there waiting, holding the door open. She raises an eyebrow as she sees the group approach. "Picked up a few hitchikers, I see." The T-Doll observes. "We still have space." Lucina grunts as she gently carries Nemo in. "Of course." ST-AR nods and shoots a momentary glare at you before climbing in yourself. You meanwhile help Vahlen inside while HK brings up the rear, sliding the door closed. "Nnnnnn, are we back yet?" Nemo mumbles as she wakes up, rubbing at her eyes. "Not yet. We just got into the helicopter." Lucina tells her."Wait..." Vahlen squints as she leans forward. "You don't happen to be Dr. Egan's daughter Nemo, are you?" "That's right..." Nemo mumbles, still rubbing her eyes. "Fascinating!" Vahlen squeals. "I'm quite a fan of your mother's work!"Now this was curious."Hnnnnn..." Nemo blinks uncertainly, her brain still frazzled from the alcohol. >Change the subject. It's probably not the right time to talk about this. >See what Vahlen is so interested in.>Other
>>3129089>See what Vahlen is so interested in.
>>3129089>>Change the subject. It's probably not the right time to talk about this.
>>3129089>>See what Vahlen is so interested in.
>>3129089Observe the two inebriated nerds
>>3129089>Change the subject. It's probably not the right time to talk about this.Both of you should exchange numbers and talk about this when you're sober.
>>3129089>>See what Vahlen is so interested in.Nemo, it is time for you to have social interaction!
>>3129089"Dr. Egan's studies on Invader biology forms the bedrock on which all modern biotechnology science works!' Vahlen gushes. "She opened a door of infinite possibilities to us! It's rather a shame she decided to switch her focus to robotics, though.""Mmmm, yeah, she was always bit impulsive like that." Nemo yawns. "Once she gets bored with one field she just moves on to another.""Now, this may sound like I'm being completely out of line, but I simply must know!" Vahlen leans forward from her seat, nearly knocking her forehead with Nemo's. "Has Dr. Egan ever mentioned anything about a 'Nemesis Project'?" "Huuuuuuuuuuuuh." Nemo pauses. "Sounds kinda familiar...""I really don't think we should be talking about Mom's work..." Lucina frowns. >No, you're kind of interested, too.>She's right, Vahlen's starting to pry a bit too deep.>Other
>>3129108>>She's right, Vahlen's starting to pry a bit too deepLet sleeping dogs lie. Not mentioning how pissed off the various governments were for being forced to give up ownership of her.
>>3129108>>She's right, Vahlen's starting to pry a bit too deep.
>>3129108>>She's right, Vahlen's starting to pry a bit too deep.Suggest that she should talk to Egan herself about it, there might be things she can and can't share. Like Umbrella expects Vahlen to keep to her NDA.
>>3129108>She's right, Vahlen's starting to pry a bit too deep.
>>3129108>>She's right, Vahlen's starting to pry a bit too deep.If she keeps digging deep enough, Carol may need to introduce herself to her on a much more personal level rather than professionally.>>3129111Wouldn't be surprised if some files hinting at her existence got leaked
>>3129108I'm kind of interested too but Lucina has a point.Time for some misdirection>Nemesis, huh? That sounds kind of intimidating. Why don't they come up with more reassuring project names? Like, I don't know, rejuvenation, hope, cornucopia, waters of life, prosperity, fortune...Although I guess things can take a nasty turn even with an optimistic name.
>>3129108"Yeah, I'm sure there's a better time and place for something like that." You speak up as well, backing up Lucina's point. "I suppose." Vahlen let's out a deep sigh. "I just simply want to create... the perfect lifeform..."And you can see it, that dangerous moment when a person is about to doze off. Vahlen's eyelids flutter open and closed and her body teeters like a tree about to be cut down. She could fall in any direction, honestly. >Let her fall on you. >Direct her towards HK.>Other
So how long do you think we'll be able to keep up this charade before everyone suddenly finds out, and bounties placed on Alice, Carol, and Lewis' heads?
>>3129128>Direct her towards NemoFor added hilarity.
>>3129128>>Let her fall on you.
>>3129128>Direct her towards HK.
>>3129128Direct her to Nemo which Nemo shoves it to HK which HK dodges it and Vahlen body leaned toward you while you grumble why this is happening to you.
>>3129128You let Vahlen fall on your shoulder to sleep. It seemed an innocent enough move. However, as you looked ahead, you could see ST-AR shaking her head and Nemo facepalming. Lucina meanwhile looked to be a poor mood. Her arms were crossed and she found something outside the window apparently offensive enough to keep glaring at. "It appears there was some sort of miscalculation here..." HK observes. You were starting to feel like had a point. >And that's it for tonight! Unfortunately, due to some holiday travel plans, I'm going to have to go on a brief hiatus, so the next thread won't be until January 18! I'll still be around online in some capacity, though!>Anyways, happy holidays to everyone!
>>3129143Lucina should learn from Alice. If you want your man, you have to grab him ASAP otherwise he marries Egan.
>>3129133>>3129135You fucked it up anons.
>>3129145we'll make it up to her soon enough
So how often did Vahlen got into situation like these?or in this case is she like Lucina, all work but no play?
>>3129157We need to bring Nemo, Lucina and possibly Vehlen and Artya into the fold about the magic shit.
>>3129070Damn it, We could have said.That a suave gentleman is escorting four pretty woman back to their homes?Man I passed out to put the write in
>>3129207You don't suppose that Vahlen will make a Male counterpart to Carol which may or may not end with them hooking up (Ignoring that Carol would be 20+ years his senior)?
>>3129368NEVER! PROTECC CAROL IS PURE
>>3129133>>3129135>>31291364 sessions of amazing rolls and good votes ruined by stupid write-ins to escort a non-romantic target home, and then more stupidity to piss Lucina off. What, The, Fuck. No really, what the hell makes some anons this fucking stupid, or do they simply have THIS much thirst to try to woo ANY women they meet in what limited time they get to see them? Or is is even simpler, as in they simply don't like Lucina. Or worse, they're actually THIS STUPID? Fuck.Why, why do some people think ruining good romance and wasting progress is funny? In the end, I'm far less pissed off from the sheer emotional retardation that should honestly be expected from anons at this point, and far more angry from a few votes by idiots making the all the work of other people in previous sessions a waste of time, just because the rest of us more sensible people has to sleep.
>>3129432The thing was in a cool down anyway and we had no combat.This was just dumb stupid and something nice to do.If Lucina is that thin to hold a grudge over this, then that’s bad on her I guess and I like Lucina. I just wanted to show Vahlen a decent time that is not lab stuff.
>>3129461>Girl who is sweet on you>thinks you're sweet on her as well>Blatantly flirt with another woman in front if herLet's not get into pissing off all of umbrella.
>>3129461For most of Merc's playerbase the notion that women have feelings is new and unexpected.
>>3129471Girl who is drunk sleeps on your shoulder.Flirting.
>>3129525>All the BS we did>NOT flirting
>>3129368Well if that's the case then we better come up with a Lewis Carroll reference for them.If they follow the Insect Hive system and make Male!Carol part of the Invader Hive, would that make him a Drone whose primary purpose is it mate with the Queen?
I'm looking forward to seeing Lucina and Lewis introducing each other to third parties.>she's literally perfect.>he's out of this world.and grinning inwardly
>>3129735I don't think it's going to happen anytime soon, especially since they barely trust eachother with intimate details.>>3129144You get this, you truly get this.
>>3129783I'd imagine that there's still a lot that hasn't been said between the two of them considering that they've only recently started to reconnect with each other.>>3129563Let's hope she doesn't get too inspired by social insects and makes her hybrid a cute/short boy to reflect the size differences.
>>3129532>Getting her drunk to squeeze info out of her>Giving her a ride home so Wesker doesn't disappear her in the middle of the night>She passes out on our shoulder>Somehow this is us flirting with herY'know I'm all on board with the Lucina train but if she's so stereotypically b-baka anime that she holds a grudge over this then she's gonna drop way down the list for me
>>3131139Lucina isn't privy to Lewis' inner thoughts, so she's going to make assumptions, just like anyone else.
>>3131163We literally let Nemo nap on our shoulders right beforehand though, we also specifically invited Nemo to the party and didn't even ask Lucina.
>>3131163Sounds like you got handed a point to build drama around as we try to clear those up.
>>3131139HK and Carol are tied for best girl. Lucina is b tier.
>>3131247What kind of life could cause such bad taste?
>>3131247>incest>sex dollAnon you may have to evaluate your life choices because those are pretty shitty choices you have
>>3131247HK is for daughteru.Carol is our sister, and even if it's not incest from a genetic standpoint, it's still fucking creepy to pork your sister.Lucina has the whole old flame angle going on that I've always been a sucker for (Karla was best girl, fite me).
>>3131331>Karla was best girlI'll be honest, I kind of want to see this bubbling pot of water that is their relationship boil over so they finally deal with this unresolved tension with an actual fight filled with venting of frustrations, yelling at each other, and revealing their secrets.I swear that everyone has something to hide in the quest.>Alice and Carol hiding the truth from Lewis>Lewis hiding his heritage from everyone>Carol potentially hiding her true feelings behind her usual older sister attitude >the truth about T-Dolls>whatever the hell Wesker is up to
>>3131337Invite her over for Festivus. She can (rightly) bitch us out during the Airing of Grievances, then the Feats of Strength lets her take a shot at us.
>>3131367Her face when we take her hit to thr face or balls without takeing any damg and we could play it off as nanotechnology then we fight and force her to the ground with some old school kid play
>>3131372>play it off as nanotechnologyNanomachines, hun. They harden in response to physical trauma (and so do I)!
>>3131337>>3131367>>3131380The real question is if the battle will devolve into hot, steamy lewds. Or if she decides to even the odds with a concealed strength enhancing nanosuit underneath her clothes.
>>3131384Thats when we invade her with our dna
>>3131384>if the battle will devolve into hot, steamy lewdsI'm thinking filthy, degenerate cuddling after they realize they love each other and have for a long time.
>>3131237Nemo is not a complete stranger to Lucina, though. They're uh, sisters.
>>3131513And knowing us both Lucina is likely well aware that Nemo really us just a friend and coworker.Whereas Vahlen is triggering her Romantic Rival Sense, and so she's jealous.Lucina may be genetically perfect, but she's still got that tiny animal part of her brain screaming to find a mate and make babies dammit.
>>3131392>>3131419At least it's not anything real kinky like lewds on, and under her office desk; or weird kinky roleplay with Lewis as the feral alien that wants to produce spawn by making her his brood mother.I kinda imagine them screaming at each other about the things they hate about the other before realizing that's what they also like about them.
>>3131513Nemo is cuter.
>>3131513Nemo's still top tier and if Lucina isn't careful we'll waifu her. If she's going to be stupid and jealous, she needs to be consistently stupid and jealous.
>>3132038Wait what?Since when was Nemo even in the running?It's Lucina, HK or celibacy.
>>3132393Nemo's always been in the running.
>>3132393I mean have you seen her adorable pic >>3131513
>>3132393>>3132393Vahlen too, if lucina is not careful
>>3133746Objectively Vahlen should have even less chances than Nemo.
I fully expect Carol to consider Lewis her only viable life partner and that dealing with that will be a plot point later on. Sure she'll let him dally around with some other people but in the end she'll expect him to come to her.
>>3134476What is this wave of incest fetishists in the quests I read.
>>3134669I ain't into it. Just saying there's a good chance that it is going to crop up.
All this Carol talk makes me wonder exactly how fine her control is over her body.I'm guessing that if she can adapt her cells rapidly to suit a need (i.e. grow armor, change texture, or even turn into a blob of flesh), would that mean she's effectively a walking panacea? Albeit, it's a bit redundant considering the amount of genetic engineering in the setting essentially solving every ailment.Not to mention that Alice and Lewis have a bit of her in their system
>>3134476My money is that she's gonna find, or make a lifetime companion by the end.
>>3139593But Lewis is already here
>>3141332True, but I also want to see if Vahlen somehow makes a male version of the Nemesis project, using her own DNA as a base, who is just as clingy to his 'mother' as Carol was in the past.
>>3141583Better bring in Alice to help her out when Vahlen is confronted with a cute boy that won't let go of her.And at all costs, avoid going near Carol's room when they're having really really mindbleach worthy shapeshifter lewds.
