Look 'em in the eye, aim no higher

Who: Team Pride (Mammon, Robin, Eiji, Eda, Agent 3, Vastra), Team Virgo (Minako, Usagi, Oscar, Namine, Frisk), and the Tech Team (Doc Brown, Sarah)
What: Time to kick robot ass.
When: During Flowers Over Bones/Crown of Thorns performances, and then for some time after
Where: The respective venues, and then elsewhere
Warnings: Violence of an indeterminate amount

Tonight's the night. Jobs have been wrapped up, preparations have been made, and now the groups that have agreed to this little mission are gathering. The targets are the managers of Pride band "Crown of Thorns" and Virgo's "Flowers Over Bones". Respectively, they have a gig at Cat's Eyes Casino and a little club called Sidewalk Innocence. Two places that are near enough that a rivalry scuffle could be blamed in the aftermath...

One last exchange on the communicators, and then the groups are on their own to take out their target.

OOC Notes:
1. The managers have enhanced strength, endurance, and speed. Teamwork is required to take them down.
2. Feel free to decide on posting order or lack of one OOCly with your team.
3. The relevant top levels will be: Team Pride VS An, Team Virgo VS Angel, and Tech Crew.

[It doesn't take much to get bystanders' attention turned elsewhere so that Mammon can begin their illusion. The soft aroma of flowers and barely noticed fallen petals are all that remain of Robin's hastily sprouted fingers, which tapped several peoples' shoulders and immediately disappeared.

She wasn't exactly ready to find herself immediately transported to the outdoors, but responds quickly enough. The bystanders look around in confusion, and then fall to the ground, their necks turned with chiropractic precision so that they'd fall unconscious but not necessarily die. If they have nightmares about disembodied arms growing out of their own bodies and attacking them after this experience, well. It'd be understandable.

At any rate, Robin nods to others. The way is clear. Time to move.]

[ Agent 3 is ready as well. her Hero Shot is out and tanks's loaded with plenty of ink. As Robin takes down the backstage hands with... hands, she darts out from her hiding spot, shoots bright green ink at the security cameras, and covers the ground with more ink. She changes into her squid form and disappears with only a few ripples showing where she is.

This isn't exactly like an Ink Battle, but her aiming skills and swimming agility still works just fine. She'll be able to provide back up support in the form of shooting with more ink and blinding Xie An's sight with ink if need be.

For now, she's going to be swimming circles around Xie An and hop in and out of the ink to keep her attention.

[Eiji isn't far behind in jumping into action. Once Mammon's illusion had taken effect and Robin and Agent 3 had started to act, Eiji quickly slotted in the three medals he needed, twisted it, and ran the scanner over them.]


[A second after his call, the belt sings a short jingle of "Taka! Tora! Batta! Tatoba Tatoba Tatoba!" and when the transformation finishes, Eiji is clad in full body armor. He runs forward with a short battle cry, the Tora Claws extending outward as he does and he takes a swing at the manager with them.]

[Well, whatever Vastra had been expecting that belt to do, it certainly hadn't been exactly what it apparently does. But it doesn't draw her attention for long, because Eiji is rushing into the fight and Vastra isn't about to let him do it on his own. Drawing her sword, she darts out around his right side to flank the manager as he demands most of Xie An's attention.]

[Eda's own position is slightly far away and hidden, but she can see Xie An just fine. So with all the pressure the hitters are putting on her, the manager is probably not expecting bullets to come and pummel her robot legs every now and again with almost inhuman precision and timing. But whatever.

Sucks to be you, Goth Robot Bitch.]

[Robin stays nearby, phasing in and out of the illusion to ensure there are no interlopers. She notes Xie An off balance, and decides to give her a little nudge to ensure she won't recover any time soon. Robin crosses her arms, and a foot grows out of the ground beneath the robot woman's heels. It rolls the ankle as if stretching, making An lose her footing even more thoroughly, then disappears.]

[ Agent 3 works to make sure the other rescuers don't get tripped up on her as she darts around. For good measure, she lobs a Burst Bomb at Xie An's face as she falls down to the floor by everyone's effort. She'll be temporarily blinded, so even if she does pick herself back up, she'll have to deal with that first before counter attacking. ]

[The first impact is hard and he could feel it but he isn't deterred in the least. With everyone's combined efforts it looked like they had her mostly on the defensive. When Xie An starts to go down he raises a leg and kicks her in the torso, adding another push to her path down.]

[Attacking head-on is all well and good, but if they're going to succeed getting some structural damage in is tantamount to victory. Vastra grits her teeth as she watches Eiji connect with Xie An, then aims to drive the point of her sword into the robot's knee. One joint at a time, soon it won't be able to get up.]

[It pays to be relentless in your attack, giving no quarter to your enemy. Eda is busy making damn sure that's it's nearly impossible for Xie An to use her legs in any major way and as on schedule, the bullets come for the robots legs before she even thinks to do anything with them.]

[Outside of the illusion, Robin hastily sprouts several eyes among the supports and visible catwalks. A few security guards seem concerned about something, one of them punching numbers on a cell phone as others scan the crowds, expressions a mix of worried and angry. The band is still playing, seemingly none the wiser- or at the very least unconcerned by the sudden disappearance of their manager. She wants to get back to the fight, to make sure Mammon won't be interrupted, but it looks like she'll have to stay here for now, so they won't be ambushed when the illusion fades.]

I can't do that!

[ All she can do is try to distract Xie An... which doesn't really need to happen anymore. Agent 3 leaves her ink and helps where she's needed. ]

[Following Mammon's shouted advice, Eiji once again brings down Tatoba's claws down upon Xie An. He aims for the throat area and sparks fly from where they connect. It isn't enough to disconnect her head from her body but it does create an opening for Vastra.]

[Indeed it does-- Cybermen's heads didn't usually roll so easily, but this particular model seems to be built too human. The neck joint is an obvious weak point, but probably strong enough to withstand at least three swings of her katana. But with Eiji giving her an opening like this one, it's easy enough.]

[Once her fellow is clear, Vastra brings her sword up over her head and down in a decisive and diagonal arc. It's not as clean as she'd like it to be, but metal is metal. The robotic woman's head hits the floor with a distinctly rattling thud, though Vastra waits to see if the body is going to act independently. She really hopes it won't.]

[Taking Vastra's lead, Eda still aims her gun at the headless robot. It might move and that might cause a bit of complication.]

Watch the body, if it moves. Attack.
