That's some pretty big talk comin' from the losin' team~

I seem to recall your little friend Phoenix losing his temper because I got him on the ropes there, didn't I!

Even if we choose to ignore all the other Dopants I've busted, that's still one-null on the scoreboard last I counted.

>despite Mettral clearly starting to lose her cool, the potential Dopant did nothing to change his demeanor
>at her remark about how she still basically won the fight, the man shook his head, before responding in a slightly frustrated tone

As I said, if he had not lost his temper, he would have won. He would have understood that you have no plans or strategy in your battles, and would have realized a crucial weakness in your skillset.

You do de same thing every fight. You grow into a giant, and you step on de enemy. Or you sit on dem. Or you throw dem at a wall. You use sheer brute force and nothing else.

So, against someone who knows how to fight and to plan, you stand little chance.

>at this, he reached into his pocket and pulled out an all-too familiar device

>another one of the strange mutated USB-like items rested in his hand, although he didn't make any move to use it just yet, still talking

Not to mention, you ignore something important.

Even though Phoenix lost his temper and lost de battle, you did not walk away unscathed, did you?

>he let that remark sit for a moment, before pressing on


As powerful as your ability is, you are as durable as an ordinary human woman. Which means when you grow, all of your weak spots become easier targets.

Or did I not see Phoenix try to fly at your eyes once you grew?

If you think you're so hot, then you should have no trouble backin' up those words, right!?

And you are easy to agitate as well.

>he looked away from her for a moment, again directing his gaze to the ground, as he muttered to himself


If only someone else had found out about de Dopants...maybe I'd have a better chance...

>he then looked back up at her, before reaching up his free hand and brushing his hair aside

>surprisingly, instead of disguising a scarred or missing eye as one might expect his hair to do - his other eye was completely normal - he revealed his own "port" tattoo, placed directly in the center of his forehead

Alright. I will make dis easier for you.

>he pointed at the tattoo in particular as he continued


Dis is more than just de means for us to transform. Dis is our weak spot. Normally you would need a purified Gaia Memory to defeat us, but some have discovered that one can simply hit de connecting point enough times to disable de transformation.

If I win dis fight, den I will complete my contract and kill you. I will feel bad about it, but I will move on, so do not tink I will hold back out of pity.

But, if you win, den I will do as you ask. I will turn myself over to you, and answer everything you want to know. I will name the organization, who runs it, any and all significant members, whatever you want.

Understand?

What do you want.

>Roxy snickered, wagging a finger in his face in faux-amusement


Right ta business like always, huh Paul? Dat’s what I like boutcha yknow?
>she took a swig of the apparently-free-now soda, then added with a more formal tone of voice
‘Cause I am here on business, just so’s we’re clear.

See, I thought we had ourselves an agreement here Paulie; half a grand on my desk first Sunday’a da month, and me’n my staff heah make sure your fine establishment stays insured ‘n safe from any ne’er-do-wells.

What are- I fucking payed you already!

I hope you're not too tired, Mettral.

Because I'm ready for a second round!

YOU EXPLODED! HOW THE HELL ARE YOU HERE!?

Are-Are you serious right now?

Phoenix Dopant. You think that means I can just throw fire around and fly? You didn't really expect me to blow myself up without knowing I'd be fine, right?

What, did you get brain damage since we last met or something?


>the Phoenix then started to walk forward, rolling his shoulders as he began to approach the wounded hero


And speaking of last time, let's pick up where we-

>THUD!


>suddenly the Phoenix stumbled back, as a familiar blur zipped by and smacked him in the face


Wha-

>only for the Armor Dopant to latch onto his arm, trying to pull him back, much to his bewilderment


What the hell are you doing?!

I didn't need you here, I had this under control!

Bullshit you did, she was about to crush you, you idiot!

You're the idiot here, you just gave yourself away! She wasn't supposed to know you were alive yet!

And you would've done worse if she won, Mr. Honor Code!

Wh-...What is this al of a sudden? Amateur community theater hour or somethin'?
>she took in a deep breath, a slight whistling sound leaving the crumpled mess that was her nose
If your plan all along was to just double-team me, you could've saved us a heck of a long time starting out that way!
>she yelled out, aiming the blame directly onto Armor
Even with two of you, ya still don't feel confident enough to take me on fair and square, huh~!?
>she slammed a fist into her palm, every stubborn bone in her body working in tandem to ignore the horrible pain she was still in
Well when you two ladies are done putting on each other's makeup, I'll be more than happy to wipe my feet on both of you cheap-shot-lovin' rats!

I've had just about enough of you and your mouth-

>but he was again cut off by a thwack, Armor dashing forward to sucker punch him again


DAMMIT!

>while he wasn't as quick as Armor, he was still able to snap him into a headlock before he could get away again, pulling him back in the process

M-Mettral! It's...it's a drug!

Hey! What're you-

This is a drug! The Gaia Memories! That's why we're forced to do this!

Shut up! Whatever you're trying to do-

Look into the previous cases! You'll understand what's at stake here!

OK, that's it!

>the fire on Phoenix's arm suddenly increased in intensity, to the point of Armor feeling like he was standing right next to a sun

>and it even looked like that, as the intensity came with a bright flash of light, more for Mettral than for anyone else, lighting up the area to blinding degrees
>it lasted for a minute or so, but once it faded, both Dopants had vanished, with only the flickering flames of Phoenix's arrival to indicate they were ever there

hh-uhrk...!
>Mettral fell, her legs giving up on holding her completely
