Station Square location destination.

Post by Shrike Marine on Mon Jan 16, 2017 5:04 pm

Station square one of the most populated cites on Mobius, a sprawling metropolis, all walks of life reside here, human and mobian, side my side on a daily basis. The origin town of one of the most mysterious figures on the planet. Where he grew up, where he went to school and begin his entire life, where every thing started for him.
However after the events that occurred nearly 5 years ago that drove him out of the city, he was unable to return back to it. For he during this time was labeled a traitor, if any attempted to return to the city he would of not doubt been arrested and captured, and his fate would of been sealed, so for the good of every thing he had to leave it all behind. 

Every thing he knew and had was there and then suddenly all gone. However since the collapse and ending of all that, he had almost entirely forgotten about it until one day he saw a post card, a card that contained a image of the city. 

That post card straight away triggered something, he suddenly remembered about it. Then again he never really could forget such a place. It even brought back a small reminder of his family that once resided there, he never knew what really happened to them, after loosing contact.

He knew at that point now that he was free, now was the time to pack his things and go back. Return to the place where it all started even if it would only be a while. He missed it a lot, a place of calm and tranquility, before the dark times..before the disaster. 

Shrike who was out side of the town that he was just about to leave was busy packing his things. He was going back to and maybe, just maybe he would find some one still there, maybe his family was still there, all he could do was go on hope, then again it was hope that saw him through the trouble times, hope was as good as he was gonna get.

He was not that far from it, but it would take a day to trek to finally return to the city.  Thus he set off into the first sun set, venturing into the world, not knowing what lay before him or what he may find but this trip was long over due. March through woods, plains, small dirt roads he carried on, the closer he got the sounds of civilization heard.

Tho only a mere two miles out, Shrike heads up a some what steep hill, this hill would take him to a large view point on top of small flat plateau, just one of many surrounding the central city, there as he went foot step by foot step, meter by meter the horizon came into view and thus before him there it was, Station Square the busy city in its every day life, civilians walking among the streets life going on as usual the lights of the city illuminate in the near distance.

He had many thoughts with him at this stage mostly memories, he stood gazing at the city before him, his bag over his shoulder, looking left to right slowly as the evening sun glanced across his armor,  he looked down at the post card he held in his hands for a moment, soon resuming his look back...Station Square, the place he left behind so many years go,who waited for him down there, that is what he had to find out. 

Making his way down the slope, each step closer brought the sounds and sights nearer eventually before him was the entrance to the place, he looked up holding the single strap of his bag at the sign that had bold letters saying "Welcome to Station square." 

" I'v waited  a long time for this....I'm  home."

-At first rather hesitant, there were so many people about, clearly something he was not use to, for him small pockets of beings was all he was really use to being, now thrust straight back into the civilized world.

Well if he wanted to make it and see it he was gonna have to suck it up and go with the flow, lowering his head from looking at the sign, he stared down the road running down and deep into the city, vast buildings on either side. 

Hell where to even begin was but one thought on his mind, should he see who was here, perhaps a ally or two, just go about exploring a bit, revising some old memories, or perhaps the most difficult of his reasons for coming home, to see if he could find his mother. 

Shrike took his first steps into the city and right off the cuff the he felt slightly un easy, walking among the general populous, with a lot staring at him as he walked by nothing by the soft winds of the day carried through the streets the voices and day to day sounds you would expect in a thriving city.

Then again he was not the most common sight for the every day joe soap in the city, with his bag on his back and his eyes on the tall structures he began to remember a lot, some times stopping to look at something he possibly remembered from his child hood. 

All around it finally began to settle in, his slightly un ease of people fading slowly as he became captured by the world he left behind so many years ago, not really much had changed he looked all round taking in all the sights.

However for Shrike he was just glad enough to be home, out there trying to make a new home was hard, just didn't feel right but here, home was automatic something you simply can't replace.

Quickly becoming loss inside the major Metropolis, Shrike stopped by what seemed to be a large street map on a pillar.-

" Man, so much to take in, some much to remember, so many things here and there and of course so many people, soooo I am here...no shit, where ever here is...I forgot how bad I was with these things. Regardless, I am home and dam it feels good."

-Of course he felt a out of place, most people were wearing typical clothing of usual civilian wear, he on the other hand looked like a soldier, or some kind of mercenary, kinda hard to miss even despite the large crowds of people.

-Shrike was busy with trying to figure out where the hell he was in the currently city vicinity, despite it been his home, his time away had caused him to forget a lot as well.-

" So is that north ? Like up that street....or maybe it is that street...or perhaps that way, god dammit I lived here most my life why can't I remember, well I suppose no need to beat myself up on it I will figure it out soon enough, but first things first time to find me something to drink and eat.

-Shrike left the post, not really bothered at this point, he wanted to get something to eat and drink, it had been a long journey to get here first off so why not relax, take in the atmosphere and just simply enjoy the fact he was home.

Still a lot to do on his so called "To do" list but he would get around to it soon enough, However while making his way through the crowds to the small outside cafe he could see a figure moving rather quickly as if she was in a hurry, only briefly stopping to watch her, he assumed she must she be on her way some where.

the place he found was a outside style kind of bar/cafe, out side and inside, turning a few heads upon entering he ordered something simple to take with him as he moved a long. 

The next thing he had to worry about was where to reside for the time he would be here, he didn't own a place of his own nor did he have the cash for it. He tried to not let it bother him to much, he would make a plan as he always did.

leaving the small place with food and other goods he carries on his way, heading for the east side of the city more of the industrial zone area, the heart of what ran the cities systems and also some local suburbs.

" Place sure expanded a bit since I was last here, hardly recall most of the buildings, perhaps it will be a little more peaceful east side, where there will be less chaos in the streets."

-Upon reaching the east sector it was indeed far less congested and crowded, a little more to his liking, a small park was just on the opposite to him, he looked at for it only a moment, he thought hey why not, got a good view from there.

Ambling along to the small park area, Shrike sat himself down now finally able to take his bag off, while it carried all his stuff this made it rather heavy, weighing on his back big time. 

Kicking his feet up Shrike looked down to the lower ends of the city, the afternoon sun starting to set, but that didn't mean the city it self was calming down, nope some times night times it got even more active.

" Well Shrike you made it, there was not welcoming home party but hey, home is home and I ain't gonna complain about that, maybe it will be like the last time and chances are I will just stumble across some one out of thin air."

-As the sun continue to set, Shrikes mood changed a little from being happy to be home to feeling a little sad, the quieter setting gave him time to think about his family, some where here in this vast metropolis there may be one still alive, holding and going on hope to find them soon. 

" Perhaps I can make up for lost time, perhaps there is still some hope left, but any way...I'm just going to savior the moment that I am home, maybe here I can escape all the chaos, fighting and every thing else that exists outside of this place...maybe start over again."

-Shrikes view interrupted by a being who seem to be repeating a question over and over again to various others. This kind of snapped him out of his deep thought as the masked figure looked over to his left.

There she was going around wandering aimlessly asking people a question no one could seem to answer, then again he found it strange they couldn't I mean they should know, they live in the damn city they out to know its location.

Shrike felt like if he should perhaps help, he knew the location of the place she was seeking, thus he got up from the small bunch he was sitting on and decided to move towards her, he could probably be mistaken for a military figure with that armor he was wearing.

He spoke to her his voice distorted via the helmet that shielded his face.-

" Excuse me mam, you seem lost. I over heard your question to others about the location of the power plant of the city, since they couldn't answer the simple question perhaps I can, that is if you can tell me why you are looking for the power plant ?"

-Shrike folded his arms, something about her seem to be familiar, but he was not really sure what it was, regardless he listen to what she had to say, although it didn't take a rocket scientist to see her nervous streak, perhaps it was him, he had been known to make others nervous for some unknown reason.

Perhaps it could of been that she was about to go to a job interview and that alone is nervous, not wanting to botch that up is something he could understand all to well.-

" Huh outsider hmmm I see I see, well I just came back home, been gone for several years due to erm...complications, but however and anyway A job interview at the power plant sounds pretty good to me.


I know exactly where it is but it is probably best that I show you the way, I am not some one who gives directions well, I know the area like the back of my hand.


Then again how could I forget such a place it is where I got drafted into the military any way, and if you thinking it no, while I look kinda like one of them I am not any more, those days are are passed. Its just all I got.


I came home to look for some one hope to find them, but let's not waste any time on that, lets get you to that interview if you will follow me."

-Shrike turned back and headed in the direction, holstering his bag over his back he sets off leading the way, tossing back and forth her familiar look in his mind.-

-Despite her apparent silence Shrike thought it would be best to well at least try to talk, while not the best in social interaction he none the less tried to when possible, he grew tiered of his old ways of being severely stubborn and rather cold, he wanted to go back to his old ways.-

" I'v been a escort for a few before, nothing really new to me, no one high ranking of course or of severe importance after all I was just a grunt like most were.


I just did my job as every one else did and every thing went well, tho it got pretty tiresome having my Sergeant constantly yell at you daily, got pretty sick of that.


So other then this Job you going to where else you been huh, plan to almost make this place your home ?"
-Shrike didn't look behind him when he spoke he just carried on his way, his dark grey armor glancing with the sun as it touched it, his black steel toe cap combat boots making thuds with each step. 

" If you the silent kind I don't mind it, not really a talker myself, it annoys some people some times so other times I just try to converse to lighten the mood, we shouldn't be to much further away."

" No, I was never a officer the highest rank I ever got was corporal I was just a basic soldier like countless others who served under the banner of G.U.N we all just did our duties. 


We were lead to believe we were doing the right thing, but the harsh reality eventually comes to one, in the end really you are really expendable, if you are killed you are merely replaced and so it carries on. 


Officers take all the glory for battles fought, but its the guys slogging it out on foot that have to pay the price of it all.


My reason for leaving was not due to insubordination or lack of results, I was thrown into a situation that brought every thing I ever knew and had crashing down ontop of me, forever changing my life for the worse, but that 5 years ago, that is all behind me now.


I'v come back to change it all go back to who I once was, lots of things I missed out on, a lot of fixing and righting of the wrongs.


As in terms of this place you will get use to it, I am not sure how long I will spend here, I came here to look for my last family member, if I have no luck I probably will return to the outskirts and resume of job as a freelancer.


Your brother sounds like a bit of a control freak, expecting every thing to go his way. 

-Shrike spoke the last part as he tilted his head back to look at her waiting for her response as he carried onward.-

" Sounds like this military way of life you come from is not G.U.N for sure, you guys some kind of outside self sustaining military force, I'v heard of several existing on the planet, never could remember their names. 


I guess he changed a lot, perhaps his dad's death impacted his mental nature, maybe he is acting out of regret, maybe he is acting like that not to show weakness. Loss of family can do a lot of damage to one more so then maybe even they know.


He needs to do something I had to do a while back, let go of the past it builds up inside of you, can even turn even a good person evil if you leave it long enough, from what I went through I finally let it go.


huh if I didn't, hell I might even of ended up like he did.

-They had passed a considerable distance in a short period of time, when you take your mind off it it seems like it was the shortest trip ever, coming to the outskirts of the military base that resided there, just adjacent to it was the large power plant station that ran the city.
its multiple sub stations converting and dispersing power to various parts of the town.-

" Well, looks like we are here, there is your destination. I wish you all the best on your job....good look."

-He said as the masked figure turned around to face her.-
