[diana has been here just over a week and already this world seems to be falling apart. between the power outage and these strange creatures with black pits for eyes, her first impression of thisavrou is not exactly ideal.

but she's an optimist at heart, even when the situation seems impossible.

she has propped her TAB up on one of the walls outside her new home and has fiddled with it until she's figured out the video function. thank goodness she's a fast learner and that the information packet had lived up to its name. the amazon stands tall, tiara upon her head, armor shining, lasso of hestia glowing at her waist, and shield slung across her back. once she's certain the video is recording (resulting in a few seconds of her just standing there silently), she clears her throat and addresses the strange little device.]


I am Diana, princess of Themyscira.

[she wonders, right after she says it, if she should have kept the disguise that steve had given her in london. but she isn't in london, and steve... steve isn't here. she will not run away from who she is, or the duty that comes with that identity. it would not be right.]

I am new to this place, but not to battle against creatures from another realm. These mimics cannot be allowed to spread their corruption across this world. Already, I have seen them attack innocent people. If they are allowed to roam unchecked, I believe they will wreak untold havoc.

[she pauses, believing this is a good and fair assessment of their current situation. she exhales slowly.]

I do not know if they can be killed so easily. Certainly not without weapons. I attempted to stop one, but my intervention did not seem to faze it, and eventually it fled. So I am in need of a sword. A spear or bow will do. If nothing else, I need direction to a smithy where I might make my own.

[diana pauses, shifting her weight. she doesn't know if this is exactly the same as leading troops into battle, but--]

I cannot do nothing. Whether or not you join me is your choice.

You ever shoot a gun?

[ Because Tex can certainly spare a gun, if Diana knows how to use one. ]

Well, that's why I rely on them.

I can give you a quick lesson if you need. I mean, as long as you know how to aim a weapon.

[ Which she assumes Diana does, considering the content of her original post. ]

Kinda old school, huh? Whatever gets the job done, I guess. I'm not sure if there are...smithies here,though.

[Heh.] No, I don't. But you're in luck—things tend to catch on fire around me, so wait a little while and you'll probably have what you need.

I can stand behind the sentiment, but I'm not sure how far you're gonna get with the bronze age aesthetic. I don't think these guys're gonna play fair.

[ Don't bring a sword to a gun battle. Or magic battle. Or, honestly, almost any battle whatsoever. ]

[ ok. ]

It's not the guns I'd worry about, but the freaky magical powers.

Well, and the guns.

I don't know about a sword, but I know where you can buy a machete.

[He gives her the directions first. Something about a shady place passed a bar called Lux and taking a left after a block.] You can't miss it.

[Then he remembers she said she was new.] I don't know if you have money, but you can just say you'll trade for it. Or...I can help? What matters is we get rid of these guys.

You know, a gun would be quicker and more effective.

Any reason why? They're more efficient than most other weapons.

[ guns are useful weapons. who fights enemies with swords and bows anymore? ]

Looks like you already have firearms covered. I might know where you could pick up a blade, though.

What kind of sword are you looking for?

[considering he's got at least one to be rid of, at the moment.] I have my own reasons for not fighting, but I'm not opposed to offering you a weapon to defend yourself with.

A princess? [Michiko looks at the camera suspiciously. She's never heard of Themy-whatever but the woman in question wasn't like any princess she's seen... Then again, it's not like she actually knows any of them.]

Pretty old fashioned.
