No need to be sorry, you did your part as the opposing force and brought about good points to narrow things down to uncover the truth. yin and yang, cant have one without the other

I'm fine. If it was poisoned well we'll find out shortly won't we? But I kept my promise, if they started throwing things I would leap in front of you.

Yes, DerVan.

And. I do not fault him for mistrusting is because of that. Were I in similar circumstances I would also hesitate to trust anyone working with him.

Hmm. I notice that our creator, or the "god" of our universe is on that list. That is another reason for the mistrust amongst us. However, no one, not even gods, are above justice. Justice is fair, and blind. It makes no difference to me who the suspects are, only that each is given their just dues. Whether they are guilty or innocent remains to be seen.
No. 1018687 ID: e51896

I understand the mistrust, and I may not understand fully the cards we are dealt with considering the perpetrator we are dealing with, and their freedom to travel through dimensions, especially with two of the possible culprits are from our world. Not to mention the inexperience we may have working under this investigation team in comparison with our experience working as investigators from our world. But I ask consideration that multidimensional travel is something relatively unheard of in our dimension, and we were only chosen by the legendary Triumphant to bring new perspective from us who had not seen the corruption that the criminals cause that this investigation team deals with with decent enough morals.

for me, I plan on being as unbiased as possible when it comes to the investigation against Happy, even if Happy is someone from our world. But will question things if I see something wrong as you all have seen with the situation with the doctor. I'm not asking for trust, not right away, but I ask to give us a chance in whatever way you seem comfortable with. I will admit that it is in my belief that Agent Corax and I were chosen to leave our world to help with this investigation for a reason, and whatever that reason is, I intend to find out by helping with this investigation to the best of our abilities. Thank you.

No. 1018769 ID: d5b764

Hold on, Peregrine.

The issue is, I have would have no problem we’re it me on the block, I cannot feel pain normally. If anything I would normally jump at the chance to feel something akin to pain, even if it meant killing me, at least I felt something for even a moment. But because my partner jumped in ahead before even asking or going over it with me before hand, it is my duty to point this out. You make a big argument about trusting us, and whether or not we can be trusted, however you are literally asking us to play roulette with a bullet based on “guilt.” That’s incredibly dumb, I have just met you today and you make a show of whether or not we can be trusted. Forgive me, but given the track record of the association we have had so far, I am unable to trust you. And now being asked to once again test ourselves more than we already have with a gun to our heads, it is quite asinine. But since you are deciding to play by your own rules, I’m going to change them.

*draws gun and points it at the bounty hunters head*

Time to do a true test of trust. If you pull that trigger at Peregrine, or even Algich if you try to pull a fast one, and either of them goes down, I will kill you. Alternatively, you may point your gun at me and pull the trigger. If your bullets work as you say they do, then I assure you, I have no qualms about doing what I do. Even if tasked to bring down a god, so be it. No one is above the law. If god himself cannot be bothered to follow his own rules then they have no meaning.

The only guilt I would feel would having done nothing while I let my partner get voluntarily shot. So then, cowboy. Make your choice.
No. 1018772 ID: e51896

Before we go any further and anyone makes a decision, I'd like to ask Algich what she thinks of all this... she was really sad about you taking the doctor's bullet for her after all, Corax.

I admire your courage, Ms. Algich, truly I do. But such an action is out of the question. Unless… If his gun truly works as he says and he has no reason to lie himself, I only ask that he open the chamber of the gun before hand. If it works as he says I expect it to appear unloaded. If it loaded with anything then I do not trust this at all. I will not hesitate to protect my team.

Do as you must, Ms. Algich. But I stand by what I said. Calling this a lie detector test isn’t correct. This a blind test of one’s own resolve, to be tested for guilt of which a normal human will no doubt always feel some in this line of work. “Oh what will become of their family, how will the public view them.” But to that I say, justice is fair, not kind. It is not my job to care, only to see it carried out.

If you, or Peregrine are in anyway harmed by this, I will shoot in order to protect my team. This is my last warning.
No. 1019084 ID: e51896

fear is something that shouldn't be completely ignored. Sure it is something that should be set aside if a friend's life is in danger, I'm sure Corax had fear for your safety when he took that bullet for you for example... but being completely fearless all the time could result in making irrational decisions. It can help with survival and not make dumb decisions at times, fear is something essential for survival, a red flag. remember that.

What I'm saying is, put logic and other emotions into consideration before you choose to listen to or ignore fear. That goes for other emotions too. Don't try to act fearless just because it'd make you look cool. For example, have you considered Triumphant's feelings with you wanting to risk your life doing this? If you have and still want to do this with Triumphant in mind, then go ahead and take the bullet.

I don’t shoot unless a crime has been committed. The only from crime I see that’s happened is what looks like a paintball to a nice suit dress. And spare me your self-pity sir, I’ve played that game of feeling abandoned by god, the only cure is to get over it.

*holsters gun*
Are we done here?
No. 1019287 ID: e51896

Let it be, Corax, and Algich. There are some things that are much more difficult to "get over" than you'd might think as trauma does a lot to a person mentally. We did what he wanted, he's satisfied, there's nothing more to discuss without being too cocky or angry. We're working for a common goal, we know everyone here all have flaws to overcome, including us admittedly, but we also shouldn't let flaws of ourselves and others distract one another from any of our strengths if we want this investigation to be a success.

Oh, and we're not done, Corax. We still gotta continue this assembly.

Oh... yeah, before we continue, can you summon the bullet off of Ms. Algich back to your gun, please?

Freeze. Peregrine, take him into custody immediately.

Someone, get a medic in here. Call for cybercrow immediately. I’ll deal with the fact that Zirzam knows Happy later.
No. 1019439 ID: 6570ef

Inner thoughts: right let’s think this through. She showed no sign of being injured or weak, and described the impact as a weak punch. Possible poison that leaked in? Perhaps. It would Have had to go through her clothes or the skin of her palm if it was poison similar to what I was affected with. Could be another medical issue she herself was unaware of, we’ll need cybercrow to tell. The timing of the arrival of Zirzam’s assistant is also suspicious. Could it have been something they brought in and didn’t notice, or perhaps someone else in the room. Taking mental note, who looks concerned or merely curious? If Zirzam truly is all knowing, he says he knows who Happy is already. Now that’s too convenient. I also suspect it’s a half-truth. If he truly knows but is doing nothing, that makes him lazy at best, and incompetent at worse. I suspect he knows or has some idea, but doesn’t know all who is involved. And given that this is the second time someone who has been investigating Happy has been attacked inside the tribunal and each time the attackers have most likely sided with Happy. We are not just here as investigators, it means we are also here as bait to find the traitors. Very clever, but I do not appreciate being put up as the target board.

Inner Thoughts: I will believe she is dead when I see the coroner's report. Anything from you cannot be trusted.

It was a very rocky start. I got overly stressed and it made me emotional and I chastised many and was more than just outspoken, it was unprofessional. We went off script, but in the end we also uncovered a traitor to this organization swiftly and within the law. If I were to give us a grade it would be a straight C. Passable, but needs work to act better as a coherent and communicative team, and me personally I need to remain in control especially in the face of adversity or when frustrated, that is in the job description after all.
No. 1019835 ID: e51896

Considering we lost one of our members, I consider it a fail, we should have been more responsible for Algich's safety and should not have taken that risk... but I think we now know that this shows there is definitely some spies trying to sabotage us... whoever sabotaged the bounty hunter's bullet must of had some extensive knowledge about our investigation team and anticipated him pulling this lie detection bullet test on us. I pray for her soul to find rest.

If that didn't happen, then I would say we did decently... I will admit at the start I wasn't speaking, but that was because I did not expect to see someone I knew from my life in the audience. But from that experience, I can be better prepared of what mindset to go into when working with this investigation team and to be better prepared of the unexpected. Putting in Algich in a situation that made her cry wasn't professional either, but Corax did a well job on getting her back to her senses. But discovering the doctor's misdeeds and proving her guilt I feel showed our proficiency in finding the truth.
No. 1019897 ID: 3e7c34

About that, I have a question about something that Zirzam's disciple said. She claimed that Lord Zirzam has already figured out who Happy is. Do we know if that statement is true or simply her praising her master's name and saying he is capable of something that's not actually possible?

Inner thoughts: If so then me and him might have words.

The smartest option would be to kill two birds with one stone. I purpose we tackle the issue of security with the known suspects who possibly are or working with Happy. I have compiled a list of names as taken from our interview with Fortune Ana, and I believe Algich did as well. I would start by cross referencing those names with our suspects and also doing the same with members of this organization to see who is most likely affiliated with Happy or have knowledge about him. If they are withholding information or are acting as informants, enforcers, etc. Best to get an idea of how deep this rabbit hole goes. This would also let us examine the list of suspects we have already gathered to get a better understanding of motive or possible link to them. I trust dossiers have already been assembled on them?
No. 1020293 ID: e51896

Well, there are a few things I'd like to figure out that I have no information on yet, such as what exactly in detail was it that caused Triumphant to faint like that, and what is he repeating in his head? Who tampered with the bounty hunter's bullet, and one thing to bring up, I noticed in the presentation there were only six prime suspects listed, but I do remember that during one of our meetings with Triumphant at a bar, he had us throw darts at a group of 9 pictures of different suspects faced away from us to hypothetically let fate decide who could be the one responsible... Maybe those three were proven innocent between then and the assembly, but I would like to ask if anyone knew who those three suspects were. I'd ask Triumphant, but he is currently out of action.


I also heard there was an incident with a machine and Triumphant through some stuff I read when Triumphant was figuring things out early on in the case, but the machine's wiring was destroyed to save Triumphant from intense discomfort. I wanted to also figure out what was going on in Triumphant's head and more details about what that machine was.

Inner Thoughts: Part of you wishes to disagree with this action. Corax and Peregrine work so much stronger together than apart, their first interogation is proof of that. And Corax is a weapon best wielded with respect and care, two things Dervan will not have. But you were not asked to speak, and your movements might display your leaning. Remain still.

No. 1020427 ID: b5fe3e

I will serve and obey as you see fit. However, if I may offer a kind of addendum to this plan. I feel it best that Peregrine not be given a new partner at this time, I have yet to meet Mrs. Din for myself so I cannot attest to how well they will work as a team. For now, I suggest that I do both. I can pull both duties as both interrogator and detective. Of course this is only my say on the matter, it is ultimately out of my hands.

No, no... it's fine Corax. You dont have to do that, I accept her as my partner.

Distrustful is not the correct word, hesitant would be more correct. It is interesting to know that Ms. Din and Peregrine have some history, albeit only brief introductions. I am more interested in knowing what she can bring to the investigation. Recommendations are good, but I’d like to get a résumé of her skills as it were.

I if may say so, mr. domino, without overstep my bounds. You do your son a disservice by not allowing him to speak up. Having worked in the field with him during our initial interrogations, I believe I have an accurate idea of what he is capable of. Threshold is what I would refer to as “a scout,” they often have to forge ahead to observe and note discrepancies and dangers to us, the ones going ahead into the line of fire. He is methodical and calculating, and was a valuable asset to our team. If he has something to say, it would be because of his observations; sometimes it take an outsiders perspective, or that of the scout to know if you’ve missed something important.
No. 1020708 ID: e51896

thank you for your support, Maya Din. I am pretty surprised that of all the times I met her, I did not suspect her of being from another world from my own. But considering Dervan had sponsored our group in the past and is also a multiverse traveler, I can believe it.

As for my questions, Im wondering what your history with Dervan if any is besides his sponsership, and what got you interested in multiverse traveling like visiting our world in the past? Where you came from. Thanks.
