    -Ze Operator's Tower of Power-
    OCC Page | Stasis Room

    Introduction
    Welcome to the Tower of Power. You have been selected to partake in a prestigious challenge, along with other fellow warriors, mages and freaks alike to have your skills gauged to the max. On each level, you will fight an adversary and test your strength, and after each battle, you will have an opportunity to rest, recuperate, and reload. You will be able to gain new weapons, skills, tools, and abilities along the way.
    But beware, challenger. Once you enter this place, you can never leave until you've defeated the final adversary.
    So how are you going to go down?
    A winner, with all the spoils of war?
    Or shall you lose you life?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ze Operator woke up with a start. He had been laying against the wall of the Tower of Power for.....how long? He couldn't remember. He had felt so groggy that his systems might have been affecting his memory. Oh well.
    He stood up, and stretched his limbs, bone by bone. The Tower of Power stood in the middle of a grassy plain, standing out like a thumb. Though it could've been seen by random passerby, there was a thick fog that surrounded the tower. Only those should be able to find it.

    Speaking of which, Operator looked at his internal clock. The digits were changing randomly every second. Righhhttt..The Tower scrambled any form of upper technology like phones or anything that gave contact to the world, like compasses or phones. Looking for something to do, Ze Operator checked his weaponry. Both of his Magnums seemed to work as well as his Binary Rifle, but his Cloaking Device was somehow glitching. Must be interference with the area around the tower. He shrugged, thinking the Device would get better once he enter the Tower. Finally, he checked his trusty Binary Sword and his Arm Cannon. Both in working order.

    He then stood firm, with his arms crossed. The others should be arriving soon.

    Tessa peered through the fog, her heart beating a little more quickly than was normal. She couldn't hear a sound in this dense white blanket of clouds, or even make out details in her surroundings. All she could do, all she had been doing was pressing forward, trying to keep herself calm as she walked quickly through the cold air, arms wrapped around herself to keep from shivering. In retrospect, she could have dressed more warmly for the occasion, but in all honesty she hadn't even understood completely what the occasion was.

    Wealth. Power. Knowledge. It was the last of these that Tessa craved, and it was all three that had been promised, should she emerge the victor. She wasn't confident enough in her strength that she could, but she had faith that her perseverance would pay off, in the end. Perhaps after this was over, she would be able to continue searching, to find the answers she so desperately craved.

    A tall tower appeared in the distance, and Tessa increased her pace, striding towards it with purpose until she appeared from the mist, her hands going nervously to the gloves tied at her waist. Perhaps, in retrospect, she should have put them on.

    Alexis hid her shakes and every nervous habit as she stepped closer to the tower, breaking through the thick fog that coated it. After everything Alexis had been through in her life, the tower that started to emerge before her, shouldn't have scared her in the least. However this was different than many other times. She wasn't just going to be sold to another owner and knew her roll and she wasn't just going to be fighting to survive and get a bite to eat on the streets. This was an entirely different place, one that she didn't know how well her... special abilities lets call them, would work. Alexis didn't know what to expect in the tower, she simply hoped it was a chance to live a better life... and perhaps be able to buy some real clothing. Real clothing would be very nice to have.

    Alexis slowly entered the tower without knocking or anything. She looked around nervously taking in her surroundings. Goodness did she hope that nothing in here would require reading, or writing, or other basic skills that most people would assume everyone knew how to do, except Alexis didn't. Given her life she was never taught anything except how to please a person, male or female. Knowledge led to a higher chance of escape. If a slave didn't know how to think then they couldn't escape. This sad fact however made her life on the streets the last few years even more difficult than it already was. Luckily she had learned how to use her weapons and her power quickly and effectively because it was the only thing she had to go on. Now she hoped they would be enough to get her through this and allow her a chance at a better life.

    Ze Operator watched as two girls slipped out of the fog. The first one was Tessa Jones, as far as he can remember. His eyes narrowed behind his pale white mask. The second woman was Alexis Ackerman. Barely any knowledge on her--
    Alexis walked right past him, entering through the tower, looking inside the first room.

    -DEFENSE MODE INITIATED-

    Though Operator didn't know what was the cause of his trigger protection, he knew it was dangerous to enter the Tower alone. Quickly, Operator reached in and grabbed Alexis before she could venture any further. With incredible strength from his right arm, he threw her outside....right into Tessa.

    "Whoops." Operator muttered. He quickly closed the door, and turned back to the two, summoning his Binary Sword, and slamming it into the stone porch of the Tower that it cracked under force, wedging the blade within. He looked at the two girls tangled in a mess, his left eye glowing a bright red light from within his mask. Hopefully, he made his statement.

    Despite Tessa having pretty good reaction skills and eyesight, she was suddenly surprised by an entire girl being tossed at her. Instinctively Tessa opened her arms and braced her feet, planting them firmly. She caught the girl, who was a little taller then her, and fell backwards, becoming the soft cushion that kept the other female from being hurt. Despite her best efforts, Tessa could feel throbbing in her back where a rock was jabbing into her skin, and bruises forming on her chest and ribcage.

    She gently shoved the girl, whom she felt really bad for manhandling without permission, off her own body so that she could breathe. "I'm sorry." She apologized breathlessly, wincing as she pressed a hand to the wound on her back. It hurt, but it wouldn't be deadly. However, it had set her off to a rather bad start. She would have to go into battle with an injury, unless she wanted to waste a healing item. "I didn't know what else to do."

    She turned to the mysterious figure who had tossed the girl, and screamed out, "What the hell?!" Before pushing herself up to a sitting position, one hand still pressed to the right side of her back. Hopefully her kidney wasn't damaged. That would just be a perfect start to the day.

    Shane Ware was on his way to the tower of power. He'd been journeying for a while now, after having escaped the confines of the labaratory with his friend Colton. A slight smile appeared at his face as he thought of his friend. Colton was perhaps the only friend Shane had ever had, even if they weren't particularly close it was still important to him. He was contemplating what was going to happen inside the tower. Supposedly, there were going to be extreme challenges. Was he ready? Only time would tell.

    He was still in deep thought when he arrived to see one girl yelling at a guy, and one female still on the ground. What had happened here? With a slight sigh, Shane began tapping into his telepathic powers. He'd been a telepath since the day he was born, but his powers hadn't activated until a little later in his life. That being said, he was pretty good with them. Using his ability to mind read, he examined the minds of each person there. It seemed the male had been acting in the girls' best interests, but he did pose a slight problem. How were they to enter if the doorway was jarred?

    He began reaching into Ze Operator's mind, prying just a little. "Hey, that's the tower of power, right? We need to get into there, and you're kind of in the way. Mind moving your sword out of there so we can get past?" he asked telepathically, using his Pushing power. Ze Operator wouldn't be forced to do what Shane said, but damn he would feel like he wanted to. Such was the power of a telepath. When it came to physical fighting, Shane wasn't the absolute best, but put him in something that required any mental capability and he was a pure terror. With that done, he turned and looked at the other two women. "What happened here?" he asked, giving no indication he'd read their minds at all.

    "What the hell?!" Tessa had shrieked at him pushing Alexis off her, staring at him. So much for introductions. But after the stunt Alexis pulled, he was unsure to let anyone enter without a group.
    "My apologies," Ze Operator replied, his voice sounding like something of an old synthesizer. "But Ms. Ackerman here was acting stupid enough to enter the Tower.....by herself. Everyone must be present before I let anyone enter the Tower--"
    The sudden appearance of Shane Ware behind the girls and a large migraine caused Ze Operator to stop, using his right arm on his sword for support and clutching his left hand to his head.

    By now, Ze Operator's head was twitching, his mind somehow conflicted with letting everyone pass, and not letting anyone pass until everyone had arrived. His mind was being too overloaded.

    -SYSTEM REBOOT ACTIVATED-

    Operator's head and arms dropped immediately, his red eye glow vanishing. He still stood, at the front of the tower. After a couple of seconds, his head raised up, left eye alight, staring right at Shane.
    "Impressive." He said. "No one's ever been able to control me for a while. You must be especially strong. But, my protocol states that I cannot let anyone enter until the entire group is present."

    Alexis was a bit dazed after being thrown into Tessa. She only blinked as the man tried to make himself look threatening before she got thrown off Tessa. Alexis shook her head trying to clear it and grab a grip on what was going on once more. As she began to pick herself up off the ground another person approached, suggesting that they be let in. This however caused the other man to flip out in a way and then shut down for a moment. Alexis couldn't really understand what was going on but by this experience she decided that it would be good to have someone else on her side, and that man, Shane Wares, seemed just like the right person.

    "Interesting what you did to him." Alexis stated as she began to walk over to Shane. "Quite the power you have there. Perhaps we should team up. I will make it worth your while." Alexis said as she ran her finger down Shane's chest in a seductive manner. However she didn't just use her natural seductive nature to sway him. As she spoke she used both her power of suggestion, and sexual inducement to try to make Shane want her. Make him believe helping her would give him everything he now desired. Alexis then turned back to Tessa. "You can join us too if you want." She added with a wink. Whether Alexis was offering a threesome or an alliance to Tessa was unclear and that was how she planned to keep it.

    Tessa opened her mouth, then shut it. Tried once more to speak, and then pressed her lips together. And for once wished that she had actually experienced what this woman promised just once, in hopes that she could have answered with some confidence. Instead, she was left uncertain, and a little frightened. Clarify, Tessa. Clarify what you want.
    "I....I would agree to an alliance." She swallowed, her throat suddenly dry. She had always been at ease with herself, but this woman oozed confidence and self assurance. It made Tessa a little jealous, if she was being honest.

    It doesn't help that the V-Card is practically displayed on my chest. She thought to herself, flushing as she pushed herself to her feet, hand still pressed to the bleeding injury on her side. It burned where the rock had cut her, the liquid warm against the palm of her hand. Annoying. Though she was secretly relieved to have something else to focus on, other then the woman's odd and unclear suggestion, and how for some reason it intrigued her.

    Zephyr was venturing through the fog towards he famed Tower of Power. He'd only heard about it from his teacher a couple of times with no further explanation other than it might be something that he'd be interested. While his teacher did have some odd teacher methods, she wasn't one to tell him something without there being some form of benefit to him. Thus he decided to go check it out for himself.

    Now he was currently making his way through the fog towards the tower. The fog was the last thing keep him from getting to the tower and he wasn't going to let it stop him. Upon entering the tower, Zephyr wasn't all that surprised to see that he wasn't the only person who was here. Two males and two females seemed to make up the group other than him. One of the females, who's outfit left very little to the imagination, was getting pretty friendly with the other guy, but that was of no concern to him. What they did was their business and theirs alone. He was much more concerned with that this tower had in store for them.

    While Shane was most certainly surprised at Ze Operator's rebooting, he was even more surprised at his ability to pick up on the fact that it was him that had done it. That was strange. Pushing generally just made people want to do things, there wasn't necessarily a voice involved. "Well, I tried" he said, shrugging his shoulders. Despite his surprise, he maintained an expression of being calm, almost bored even. However, this facade dropped the moment Alexis touched him. It was as though it were some kind of spell, but that was impossible...even he with all his telepathic powers couldn't influence someone's body to have a physical reaction to something like that. Of course his natural response to that would be hell yeah, and damn he wanted to. Like, he wasn't even into those kinds of girls and yet he wanted her.

    And yet, as much as his little head wanted to say yes and go for it, his big head said no. For now, the big head won over. Barely. "Tempting. Very tempting, but not right now. At least, as far as making it worth my while goes. I'll team up with you guys, but that's it" he explained, all the while having to fight against his body screaming at him that he was an idiot.

    Ze Operator's red eye flickered between Shane, Alexis, and Tessa. His motion tracker went off, causing his eye to train on the now-approaching Zephry.
    "Quite the power you have there. Perhaps we should team up. I will make it worth your while." She was saying to Shane, then turned to Tessa with a wink, "You can join us too if you want."
    Upon overhearing Alexis' flirt to Tessa and Shane, Operator suddenly began to make a repetitive wheezing noise that phased in and out, lowering and raising in volume. At first, one might have thought that he was sick, but in reality, it was just his laugh. A rather unnerving laugh to some.
    "Enough." Operator finally growled. He lifted the sword off the ground, removing it, and it vanished from his hands, and his defense protocol deactivated.
    "Everyone has arrived. Now we can get to the main attraction."
    He walked down the steps of the Tower, looking once more at each and every one of those who decided to take the challenge. "A majority of you came to this Tower with a purpose."
    He stated, first looking at Zephry. "Some look for guidance."
    He turned next to Shane. "Some stand for penance."
    He sized up Tessa next. "Others care for improvement,"
    He glowered at Alexis last. "While others are compelled by avarice."
    He stood towards the Tower, and flicked his hand. A tarot card, that looked like a large tower, almost exactly like the Tower of Power. "The Tower Tarot card represents truth. And the truth is probably the hardest for anyone to take in. Most can say...." He tilted his head slightly, "That when people tell the truth, the world loses it's mind." He let out another digital chuckle.
    He finally dropped the gentlemanly facade, reverting to his usual attitude.
    "Here's the deal. You all have agreed to work together as a team through all floors of this tower. On one for every two of these floors, you will face a powerful individual, and on the next floor above it, there will be a room of rest. The Stasis Room, as I call it. The only twist is that each floor on this Tower, is randomly generated, but fueled solely on on the desires of the challengers. This Tower fights you as much as you fight it, and the moment you enter through those doors is when you either beat all 30 of the boss floors, or you die trying."
    He finally finished with, "I have read up on each of your files. I know your strengths and weaknesses. This Tower is made specifically for rectifying those weaknesses. Basically, survive together, die together." He glared at Alexis to make sure that she was paying attention "Is that clear??"
    Operator didn't wait for a response. "Good." He walked back to the Tower door, snapping his fingers. Both Tower doors flew open, a dark room entering ahead. Operator turned a head back, saying "If anyone would like to back out, now is a good time."

    Tessa glanced at the others, trying to gauge if they were as unnerved as she was. However much Ze Operator frightened her, she could not turn back. Noticing his particular antagonistic attitude towards Alexis, she stepped forward, hoping to take the attention off the other girl. If they were going to work as a team, she would start by protecting her teammates. It meant everything for her to win.

    "I'm ready." She declared, finally taking her hand off the wound and crossing her arm, thankful that it had finally stopped bleeding. She would have hated to use a healing potion this early in the game, when god knew what else was waiting for them on the floors of the Tower.

    Zephyr stood there as Ze Operator gave them a run down of what they would be doing here in the Tower. He took another look at the people that he would be working with. So far his opinion of them remained neutral thus he didn't really mind working with them. Now how long that would last was entirely dependent on them not doing anything to bug him. "And how did you get a hold of these files?" First off he was curious as to just who had gotten this information on him and put it into a file. Second, he didn't like that someone had just read up on a file that has his information.

    The doors opened and thus they were allowed in. Zephyr had no intention on running away. Not because of the grief he would get from his teacher if he did, but more because that went against his own principles of not going back on his decisions once he's made them. He started walk forwards towards the opened doors and into the tower.

    "Well it is your guy's loss but if you work with me, I will owe you one, feel free to request my offer at any time. I probably won't refuse." She said sweetly to the two that she was talking with, Tessa and Caleb. "By the way my name is Alexis." She added on as she turned away from Caleb, beginning to walk away, swaying her hips as she did so. Alexis approached the door once again, this time not entering, at least not till someone said she could. She really didn't feel like getting thrown out again, her arm was already starting to bruise from where the guy grabbed her before. She then turned to the man who grabbed her feeling the need to say something about the sound that he was making. "Perhaps entering this tower wouldn't be a good idea for you. I mean it already sounds like you are going to be sick. Don't want to have to deal with that while you are inside." She added.

    She listened to the mans explanation on what was going to happen. He then added on about reading up on files.
    "I don't think there was much to read for mine. Given my life I don't think there is a record of my existence since I was five... and if there was, I can't imagine what you might think of me now." Alexis stated, not seeming phased by her past, it didn't seem to bother her now. Despite everything that had happened, despite the scars on her wrists and ankles where she had been bound and chained by some of her owners. None of that mattered anymore. She had become so used to it, it was a part of her life and stopped bothering her by the time she was ten. She had adjusted quite quickly. So when it came to the owners mark, one of her owners gave her, she didn't even flinch at the pain. She wore the tattoo with pride now. Given her entire life, doing something like this would certainly be interesting and dangerous, but a small price to pay to escape.

    "And how did you get a hold of these files?" Came Zephry's inquiry.
    "I had the files in my database." Operator returned almost cryptically. His attention turned Alexis stepping up the Tower steps, saying,
    "Perhaps entering this tower wouldn't be a good idea for you. I mean it already sounds like you are going to be sick. Don't want to have to deal with that while you are inside." She added.
    "Trust me milady, you don't know what I have been through in my past. I'm not sick. I just breath like this."
    "I don't think there was much to read for mine. Given my life I don't think there is a record of my existence since I was five... and if there was, I can't imagine what you might think of me now."
    She went on.
    Operator stared at the scars and the wrists and ankles. She had no idea what her file held, but that didn't matter; Operator was no stranger to human cruelty. How he was now was an excellent example. He removed his smiling white mask, a rare gesture. Underneath had a slightly pallid but handsome face. He had black, slightly messy hair, and a chestnut-colored right brown eye. But his left eye was completely mechanical, iris red. The male was handsome to some extent, and yet, the mechanical eye did not disrupt any of his facial features, his flesh and blood. The red eye's pupil contracted and adjusted mechanically on Alexis.

    "I my thoughts have not changed based on your background, as I treat allies as I should." He said, his voice much clearer from the mask. It still sounded a little distorted. "What I did earlier was nothing more than a protection protocol, and I'm sorry for throwing you at Ms. Jones." He looked to the fog surrounding the place. "It's like this mist is messing with my machine half or something."
    "If anything, I guess everyone is treated like products or objects from one time to another, some more than others."
    His voice pitched downward a bit, but then fixed itself. He than replaced is mask, and then gestured towards the door. "If know one has any intention of running, you may all enter."
    MISSION START!

    ENTER THE TOWER OF POWER!

    Shane listened carefully to what was said. So apparently Ze Operator had files on him. That was interesting indeed, given that the only person that had known about his powers was Stein. There was Stein, there was Isabella, and Lucas. All three had died because of him, so how was it that this man knew of them too? Not only knew about his powers, but also had his files? "If you know as much as you claim, then you'll know not to get in my way" the boy threatened. The idea of someone knowing so much about his life when he had no idea who they were was unsettling at best. Even if Ze Operator knew about his powers, surely the files couldn't tell him that the killing he had done when he was younger hadn't been intentional...could they? Shrugging off the thought, he stepped inside the tower.

    Files, hm? While some of the others seemed unsettled, Tessa merely shrugged. So what? She had never tried to hide her past, any of it, from anyone. No, it wasn't great dinner conversation and no, she didn't tell someone on the first date, but it was hardly a secret.

    She followed the boy inside the tower shivering slightly at the temperature change. Whereas it had been damp and humid outside, in here it was cold and dry. The air had a funny sense to it, and she rubbed her arms together, trying to put herself at ease.

    All the while, her mind screamed at her, "Be on your guard."

    The answer he was given only served to call forth more questions. Just who put the files in his database then? Asking though would probably not give him an answer so Zephyr yielded and entered the Tower. From here on out they would face whatever the decided to throw at them. Based off our desires. Zephyr was actually curious to see what the tower would summon that was taken from his desires. He was still confident that he'd be able to handle himself though, no matter what obstacle appeared before him.

    "Rude." Alexis muttered as no one bothered to introduce themselves after she had so graciously just introduced herself. Alexis just rolled her eyes and turned her attention to Operator as he addressed her comment about her files. "You don't have to treat me any certain way. I stopped caring long ago, just know that you mean as little to me as I mean to any of you. Got it? We will work together and I may actually make it worth your while but no one has earned real trust from me, so have fun with that." Alexis stated, talking to all of them. Operator promised to treat her like any other ally but she still had her doubts about what it would actually be like, treated like an ally. In her mind it was quite likely to be treated as meat shields to further his own progress. She didn't know but she didn't tend to have a very high opinion of people so it seemed likely.

    Taking a deep breath to calm her nerves, Alexis forced herself to move inside the tower. After being forcefully pulled out like entering was going to kill her, and this talk of him know everything there was to know about her and her powers, Alexis got very uncomfortable and frightened, but did her best not to show it. Instead she held her head high and began forward entering the tower. Her eyes glanced at the other two males in the group. It seemed like a weird time to be thinking of it, but Alexis wished she had a man of her own, a real boyfriend, not just someone she used or someone that used her. A person who would protect her from whatever they were about to face and not judge her for her past, instead protect her. However that didn't seem likely, who would ever love a **** like her? So Alexis turned her attention back to looking around the inside of the tower, forcing the thoughts out of her mind. She was on her own, she needed to focus on finding her own way out of this life, even if it involved still using people. She would. Whatever it took to get out. Then perhaps she could think of having a real boyfriend, but right now she had to think of fighting.
