Chris' Squad Mobilizes[edit | edit source]

Chris
Alpha here. Did either of you find anything worth reporting yet?
EnricoR
Yeah.
Piers
Not really, captain. I've been taking it slowly.
I did come across a friend of mine, though, and he's willing to help.
Date
...I'm gonna get my hands on the premium magazines those guys are hiding... I have to...
Piers
...Either way, I think he'll be useful if we cross paths with anyone dangerous.
What about you, Captain? Y-You've been taking care of yourself, right?
Chris
As always. Got a few push-up reps in, too.
Piers
Ah, I see. Gotta keep those muscles in check, right? Ahahah...
Date
Muscles? Do they have musclegirl mags too?
My checklist is gonna be complete in no time if it keeps up like that!
Enrico
Yeah.
Piers
Huh? Wesker?
Are you going to confront him?
Enrico
Yeah.
Chris
Enrico, you're all by yourself. You sure you can handle him?
I can try ambushing from the other side. Do you want backup?
Enrico
Yeah.
Chris
It's my duty as a leader to not let my squad's lives be taken away for nothing.
But if you feel that way, I guess there's no stopping you. Go get him!
Piers
Wait up. I think I'm hearing a conversation downstairs.
???
And then I tied her up, and took her to the van!
We got so many pictures of her feet... Even covered it in ketchup!
Piers
That must be it!
Date
I... I NEED THOSE PICTURES RIGHT NOW!
Piers
Date, wait up! They're dangerous!
Chris
Piers, do YOU need help?
Piers
There's no time for that, captain! I can deal with them myself. I'll show you my worth!

Drake gets 600k in Debt[edit | edit source]

Drake
Why? Why did I take that loan?
Why didn't I check the interest rate?
Two weeks... And I'm already 600.000 in debt!
Estoy jodido. And I lied about my guarantor, too!
"Papi", come on, who would believe that?! Mierda!
The NFTs... They're my last hope... Come on!
Vitalik
Drake, Drake, my old friend! How are you doing tonight?
Drake
B-Bueno! I'm feeling great, jefe!
Vitalik
Good. So, you know those two friends of mine you took the loan from?
They called me the other day. Wanted to know how long it'll take for your first payment.
You aren't gonna screw them over... Are you?
Drake
A-Ahahaha! Seguro que no! No way I'd do that!
Vitalik
I see... And how much do you have saved up from those investments you talked about?
Drake
Wait! I got a phone call, hahah! Sorry, boss, this is an important one!
I-It's from... Uhhh... Papi! My guarantor, you know? Gotta stay in g-good terms with him! Haha!
Vitalik
Are you implying we're gonna have to go after your guarantor?
Drake
N-Not at all! Don't worry about it! H-Hey, Papi? Buenos dias, amigo! Como estás?!
...Ahhh, sí, sí!
Vitalik
...Well, I'm not gonna pry into your private business. Have a nice day!
Drake
Dios mio, that was close...
Huh? Call from... "Dad"?
Drake's Dad
Hey, Drake, are you available?
Drake
Y-Yeah. What's up?
Drake's Dad
Well, I heard a few rumors from people backstage, and... We gotta talk.
Drake
Is it THAT important?
Drake's Dad
I believe so. Can we meet up?
Drake
Sure... Same place as always? I'll see you soon.
Drake's Dad
Got it. See ya.
Drake
Ugh, what could he want from me at a time like this?

The Yeagerist Parade[edit | edit source]

Arthur
Damn, it's my first time at one of those "Yeagerist" parades.
Their leader's talk impressed me, but I'm not so sure about all that noise...
Those guys are gonna end up destroyin' my eardrums!
I guess it's worth it if it's for freedom, though?
Ruber
Indeed, indeed it is! Isn't it quite the spectacle?
I've heard of you. ...Morgan, isn't it? That's what the back of your shirt says, at least.
Arthur
That's me indeed. Arthur Morgan. We crossed paths backstage once or twice, didn't we?
Ruber
You were the kid Dutch was always dragging around... I see now.
Did you really believe his "plans"?
Arthur
Well, for a while I did. But lately it looks like he's been' out of his mind.
Then I came across a flyer, and ended up learning about Eren's work.
It gave me a new outlook on life, y'know? Made me reconsider a lot of things.
I realized that before... I was nothin' more than cattle, bein' led on by others.
And that's how I ended up here, I guess.
Ruber
I see! You know, Eren is the real deal!
His ideals represent not only the nation of Ingerland, but something you should base your life on.
Arthur
Sure seems like it. What about all those guys, though?
Yeagerist #1
CAAAAAAAM OOOOOOON, EEEEEREEEEEEEN!
Yeagerist #2
WE SHOULD GET RID OF THOSE FOOKIN ITALIANS NEXT!
Yeagerist #3
ONE OF THEM MADE ME BEAT MY WOIF YESTERDAY!
Arthur
...Are you sure those guys want the best for their people?
They might just be here for their own interests, for all ya know.
Ruber
Oh, don't worry about that! I assure you this parade is quite the healthy environment.
See, why don't you try asking my friend over here? He told me a truly emotional story from his recent meeting with Eren.
Ingerland
Oi, lad, you didn't know? Me son had a very serious illness, and used his last wish to have a fookin wresslin classic with Eren himself!
Turns out that, after the match, Eren somehow used his powers to cure him!
As you can see... He's no longer terminally ginger!
W-Well, he did grow quite a bit bigger becooz of it, but I'd consider that a bonus!
Ruber
Incredible story, isn't it? That's what happens when you're a true Yeagerist.
Arthur
I gotta say, that's pretty damn impressive if you ask me.
I made the right choice in who to follow after all...
Ingerland
That's why you must dedicate your fookin heart to the cause! Shinzou wo sasageyo!
Ruber
Alright, alright. We're gonna be left behind at this pace. Let's keep going, Arthur!

Ichiban
Haaaah, I'm stuffed!
I knew being friends with the King would be awesome!
Thanks for paying for my meal! I really appreciate it.
Sinbad
Ah, it's nothing. You're the one who took my quest, after all.
Jack
This sandwich... It wasn't poisoned by Chaos. I finally was able to check.
Ichiban
Of course it wasn't! Now take a bite of it already!
Sinbad
...Hey, they put pickles in mine!
Have they forgotten what was written in my 3rd book? I never eat my burgers with pickles!
Ichiban
If you don't want those, I'll gladly take them from you!
...Man, I think I've got my HP and MP full now.
Maybe I can even go through the next dungeon without any consumables!
Oh, nevermind, I know something I can't go through even the next five minutes without. And that's taking a leak.
I'll be back in a bit, guys!
Jack
Be aware of Chaos lurking in the bathroom.

Ichiban
Ahhh, there we go. Much better now.
...Wait up, Jack said something about chaos in the bathroom...
And that guy leaving just now, he's-
It's that guy who was making fun of us when we were behind bars!
He's heading out the back door... I gotta tail him.
...Where did he go?
Dammit, asshole is good at hiding. Should've figured, the way he dresses.
???
...What are you interested in, I wonder?
Doesn't seem like a friendly talk to me.
Ichiban
There you are! I know what you've been up to!
What kind of relationship do you have with that cop? Did you order for our arrest?
...Come on now! Tell me!
???
Some things are better left... Unexplained...
Maybe it would be wise for you to take a step back instead?
Ichiban
No way. If we need to throw hands, then so be it!
Come on, I feel like leveling up already!

ICHIBAN! There you are!
What are you doing? Why are you...
Ichiban
Ah, I thought I could get some solo XP here. I'm sorry...
Jack
To have a one-on-one fight with Chaos. A brave move, indeed.
???
Seems like you've got company?
Well, I haven't brought my valuable partners with me right now.
This fight would be simply unfair as things stand.
Therefore... I shall take my leave...
Ichiban
H-Hey, wait up! We need some answers here!
Jack
Chaos is getting away again... How come are we allowing it?
Sinbad
Better not to follow him, Ichiban.
You need to plan this out more carefully.
Ichiban
Huh? Why do you say that?
I mean, he did feel like a threat all right, but...
Sinbad
That man is no small time thug.
He is... The right-hand man of our enemy, the Dragonlord.
His name is Seeker.
Ichiban
S-Seeker?
Sinbad
A dynamic and magnificent foe. Be careful when you approach him.
Ichiban
I see... Apologies for getting careless there.
Sinbad
We need to watch our backs across the city now. Especially when you've got a famous face like mine out there.
Ichiban
I'll make sure we try to avoid random encounters, then!

Did you even read the rules?! Fights take place inside the cage, 2/3 falls, Knockouts ONLY!
Battler
B-But I was trying to knock him o-
Kinzo
IT MEANS NO PINFALLS, BATTLER! YOU COULDN'T WIN FROM A 3 COUNT!
And guess what? You lost.
Battler
Ahhhhh, come on! It's a wrestling match, isn't it?
What kind of wrestling match doesn't allow pinfalls?!
Those rules... They shouldn't exist!
Kinzo
That's the problem with you kids these days.
You don't have any self-control, and you don't have any discipline!
And that's why I'll teach you exactly that!
For today's lesson...
Battler
Are you gonna have me punished? Whipped? Tortured?
Kinzo
...You'll have to stand still for 15 minutes.
Battler
W-What?! How does that help m-
Kinzo
It starts in five seconds. I'll be back.
DON'T MOVE A MUSCLE!

Kinzo
Battler! What did I tell you?!
Battler
T-That wasn't fair! I wasn't ready fo-
Kinzo
Discipline, Battler! DISCIPLINE! HAVE CONTROL OF YOUR OWN BODY AND SOUL!

The Mandate of Japan[edit | edit source]

Red
How... Could he do that to me...
Dream? Who the hell dreams about sucking dick for pocket change?
And all of that just so you can star in some naked wrestling movie? What the fuck?
I can't accept this.
I might've lost that match, but I can't give up just yet. Think, Red, Think!
How can I make Tre reconsider his so-called "dreams"?
???
I might have the solution you're looking for.
Red
Huh? Who are you?
???
Apologies for not introducing myself first.
Koshimizu
I am the Prime Minister of Japan, Koshimizu Hayao.
You see, due to how many wrestlers we export to Coolsville...
Lately, Japanese culture has been heavily influenced by whatever is currently trending over here.
That's why I have come on this visit to, let's say, "improve what we're copying".
As you might know, the Japanese TFR has been taking nosedive after nosedive for the past few years.
Red
TFR has a branch in Japan?
Koshimizu
Total Fertility Rate.
Red
...I was trying to make a joke... Is that why Tre ignores me?
Koshimizu
Moving on, what we need is exactly what you're going for here.
We need the people to procreate, to guarantee Japan's future!
That's why I came here. To try to change the image of Coolsville.
To me, the image this place should give the outside world is healthy young couples with many, many kids!
And I think you could make a great poster girl for that.
A nation's well-being is above any individual's dream.
Red
You're right. But how can we change his mind?
Koshimizu
I have a few things I could teach you about, if you don't mind.
You won't need to fight with your own fists nearly as much anymore.
Red
...Whatever works, as long as we stop Tre from licking some old fart's balls...

Yeagerist Protest[edit | edit source]

Katsuya
I gotta say, it's nice to be able to wind down a bit.
Ooishi
Nfu-fu-fu-fu! All this place needs is some air conditioning.
It's comfortable in here, but quite hot, to be honest with you!
Katsuya
Hm? I'm pretty sure the temperature is quite low today, though.
Ooishi
You know how I am. I like to blast it!
Katsuya
You sure do, hahahah!
So, Ooishi, tonight's on me. What are you gonna be drinking?
Ooishi
Being nice to your elders, I see? Na-ha-ha-ha-ha!
In that case, I'll have the best whiskey on the menu!
Katsuya
T-That one?! H-Hey, haha, maybe you could choose something else?
It's, uhhh, I heard it might not go down so well on older people, and-
Ooishi
I'm joking, I'm joking! Nfu-fu-fu-fu!
You always fall for it so easily, Suou.
Katsuya
And you're always one to mess around, aren't you?
Hah, guess I'm used to it. Well, in that case, I'll have...
The Bartender
Don't worry about it. This one is on the house.
Katsuya
Huh? You're really giving us some of your best whiskey for free? Why's that?
The Bartender
...No specific reason. You could say I just felt like it.
Enjoy your drink, you two.
Ooishi
See? I knew he was a nice guy!
Katsuya
...I don't think it's fair for us to not pay for it, but I'm not gonna say no to a gift.
You're a regular here, aren't you?
Maybe he knows your retirement is coming up and wanted to congratulate you in some way?
Ooishi
Right! My pension... It'll be paid in full!
I'll get to move away and have my ballroom dance lessons in peace soon enough! Na-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Katsuya
You've been serving the force for quite a while after all.
Father used to be your partner, and now me...
You've done enough work. It was about time a hero of justice like you would rest, Ooishi.
Ooishi
Hey! No need to be so kind with words, nfu-fu-fu-fu!
Katsuya
I mean it... I really do look up to you...
Wait! What is that?
Ooishi
I think I know that noise. Guess drinking time is over.
The Bartender
Some jobs just won't let you rest, huh?
Katsuya
Now stop right there! Do you have a permit for what you're doing?
Ooishi
Na-ha-ha-ha! It's useless, Suou. I know those guys.
They're trying to stand up against the government. And as police officers...
Katsuya
Yeah, I figured this is where it was going. Call for backup, I'll see if I can arrest anyone...
Arthur
Just a minute. You two clowns think you can stand in the way of freedom?
I don't think I'm about to allow that anytime soon, son!
Ruber
Nice job, Arthur! You sound just like one of us already!
Alright, let's get rid of those two so we can keep going!
Ooishi
Backup is gonna take a while. It's gonna be just the two of us.

Vs. Chris Masters, Patriarch of the Masters Family[edit | edit source]

The Cagist
Another amazing performance, Kiryu! I wouldn't have expected anything less.
Kiryu
He might have been a powerful foe...
But I'm here to show that evil will never prevail.
The Cagist
So, I assume you want to know about Evolution?
Kiryu
Indeed. Just give me their locations, and anything else you deem important.
The Cagist
From what I've gathered, the next one on your list is the "Masterpiece", Chris Masters.
His finishing move is known as the "Masterlock". Trust me, you don't wanna end up caught by it.
It's the second most painful lock I've experienced in my life...
Kiryu
Huh? What would the first be?
The Cagist
Steph's... Nevermind.
Either way, just like Ryback, owner of Feed Me More Nutrition, he's a very powerful man.
But I think he's narcissistic enough to not even bring any reinforcements.
I believe he'll want to face you one on one.
Kiryu
That makes things easier. I made quick work of his former buddy while exhausted from fighting off goons before.
What about the others?
The Cagist
Knowing how Evolution operates, they'll come after you as soon as you're done with Masters.
You won't have time to search for them, so just take them out as soon as they strike.
Kiryu
I didn't wanna take that approach, but if you believe it's the best thing to do, then so be it...
It'll mean I'll have another reason to stay away from those I care about, though.
...Where would Masters be right now?
The Cagist
...He's waiting in the ring, according to my cameras.
Kiryu
Huh? Are you serious?
Masters
Kiryu! Your lucky streak ends tonight!
Show yourself!
Kiryu
I'm heading down. Tell me if anything else comes up.
The Cagist
For sure... And good luck. He's a tough one.

But it's no match for the techniques I've learned in the past!
Masters
K-Kiryu...
You showed me... What a masterpiece really is...
Your fighting performance. Your body. Your endurance... It's... Amazing.
I can only hope I can master as many skills as you have one day...
Kiryu
I'll thank you for the compliments, but you better start spilling the beans.
What the hell do you guys want? Who's coming after me next?
Masters
I have a request to make, first of all.
Will you... Accept me as one of your disciples, Kiryu?
Kiryu
If you're willing to redeem yourself, I'm not anyone to judge.
Masters
In exchange, I'll tell you something no one else would dare reveal right now. Especially not the Cagist.
The owner of this place, The Game himself...
He's... A founding member of Evolution.
Kiryu
...What? What do you mean?
Masters
It's just as you heard.
Kiryu
No... It can't be... Why wouldn't he-
Masters
I'll leave you two to discuss that yourselves. I can't say any more.
Kiryu
The Cagist, a member of Evolution?
But why would he be in a organization that went against Kasai and Steven?
They're his old, trusted friends! They have a long story together!
And why would he betray my trust? Lie to me like that?
I need to confront him about this.
Maybe... Evolution changed as time went on?
Or maybe something made The Cagist himself change. Surely he's abandoned them by now?
Just like... That day, that fight against Steven changed me.
That long, tiresome fight... The hardest challenge of my life...

Founding of the Mystery Masters[edit | edit source]

Wright
So, you want the full story, right.
Sminem
Go on. No need to spare any details.
Wright
Well, to tell the truth, I don't know exactly what went on that night myself.
It's pretty simple, really. I was getting ready for my big match.
Hyped myself up, did my stretches, you know, just the usual.
And then, when I was about to go through that curtain...
I heard footsteps. And I could feel a malicious presence approaching me.
As I turned around, though... I got kicked in the head immediately.
It caught me off guard, so I was out cold on the spot. Didn't even manage to catch a glimpse of who did it.
It hit me like a surprise schoolboy 3 count when you're about to win the world title.
Next thing I know... I wake up outside, and it's freezing cold.
And then, security won't even let me in the arena anymore.
I didn't run away from the challenge...
Someone... For some reason... Just didn't want me to compete that night.
Sminem
To be honest, your story doesn't surprise me.
I knew something was fishy from the start.
Thing is, we don't have many leads on it whatsoever...
I could seek the answers myself, but considering my reputation as the boss around here...
I think people might be afraid of telling me the truth.
You mentioned the security staff, right?
I think you could start your investigation by asking TFR backstage staff about it.
About what they saw that night, if they spotted someone suspicious...
Wright
Sounds like a good plan.
Sminem
Oh, I didn't tell you, did I? You're not gonna be alone, at the very least.
We've got a good hand to help you out in the company roster, after all.
Saihara, over here, is a very competent detective. He'll be joining you on the investigation.
Hah, I think you two could even make a good tag team... Hmmm... "The Mystery Masters"... Does that sound like a good name?
Wright
That's cool by me. Nice to meet you.
Saihara
Hey there! Hope we can work things out together!
Sminem
Alright, you've got your partner, and you've got a starting point.
Now, it's all up to you, Wright.
Wright
Hm? What if I need to give you an update on how things are going?
Or, I don't know, ask for further advice...
Sminem
Hah, you'll do fine by yourself.
You know... The life I lead gives me many responsibilities.
It also puts me in great danger. But that's not for you to worry about, is it?
Goodbye, Wright...
Wright
U-Uh?! S-See you later, boss...

At that time, we didn't know...
That this would be the last time we heard of him...

Wright
...
Huh? Who's calling?
???
Wright, I assume?
I need to tell you about Sminem.
Wright
Who are you? What do you want?
???
We can meet up later. It's just...
He's dead, Wright.
Wright
What? The boss is... dead?
???
I don't know how, or why, but that's the truth.
I'm sorry I have to be the bearer of bad news.
Wright
...
...Just how... Are we gonna get through this?

The President[edit | edit source]

Shimano
So... I see Coolsville Hills turned out a success so far, Mr. President.
That, and the increased security around the area has given us more control than ever.
Hazz
You really are a master of street knowledge, Shimano.
That's why I trust you with my every decision.
That, and all the muscle you have supporting you.
I shall thank you once again for being the fists of this government.
If not for you, movements like "The Armstrong Surge" and "The Yeagerists" could have ruined this place already.
Coolsville owes a lot to you.
And that's why I called upon this meeting tonight.
We can not only discuss the next few steps of our plans, but also...
I wanted to officially nominate you, Shimano, patriarch of the strongest mafia family in Coolsville...
As my second-in-command.
You're like a son to me. And all the service you've done managing my business is more than enough to prove it.
Your family isn't simply a mafia, they're knowledgeable and competent, and that's all because of you.
Once again, thank you. Is there anything you'd like to say?
Shimano
I've been waiting for this opportunity for a long time.
Be sure that, from now on, me and my men will keep doing our best to support this city's growth.
And one day, not only will Hazz Maticus be the most powerful person on this planet...
By his side, will stand the strongest family around. The Shimano Family!
So worry not... I'll be sure to take care of your business... Extra well, from now on.
Hazz
I knew you were trustworthy, Shimano.
You're the only one capable of going toe-to-toe with the Sonozakis, after all.
Shimano
Steven... He'll still pay for what he's done in the past.
Hazz
A man of his strength was bound to have caused us trouble.
But Coolsville will remain under this iron fist. I believe in it.
Shimano
Well said, boss. Well said.

The Cagists' Final Request[edit | edit source]

Leon
There, we won our matches. Happy?
Better go spilling the beans on Ada right now!
Fred
Yeah, really. Guy you paired me up with wrestled like a rookie, for God's sake!
The Cagist
I just gave you opponents that matched your skill levels and card status. B+ players.
Anyway... I have to ask one more thing from you two.
But before that, let me go consult my sources about the info you desire.
I'll be back in a bit. Make yourselves at home.
Leon
"Sources"? That guy is full of shit, isn't he?
Fred
You tell me. But that Sonozaki guy did sound pretty reliable when he recommended him to us.
???
Hey, is someone there?
Fred
Hm? Who might you be?
Leon
No way! The Cagist brought us... The man who kidnapped Ada himself?
I'm gonna give you what you deserve, asshole!
Fred
Leon, calm down!
Tomitake
Oh, sorry if I startled you.
My name is Tomitake. I'm a freelancer cameraman from Tokyo.
Fred
And what business does a cameraman have here?
Tomitake
I thought it would be obvious.
Which cameraman wouldn't want to photograph such a legendary location?
The "wrestling arena no crowd dares to set foot in"...
Surprised to see someone else here, though. Were the rumors not true after all?
Fred
Oh, trust me, no one comes to watch this shitshow. They can't even get the rulesets right.
If you'd ask me, I think NXT Sucks!
Tomitake
Hah, better be a bit more quiet. The Cagist might hear that.
Fred
Right... So, do you want anything with us?
Tomitake
Well, now that you mention it, you two are waiting to meet him too, right?
So, why don't I use the free time to teach you about something cool?
Leon
I already read "How to impress Asian girls 101". I can't be any cooler.
I mean, have you seen my new suit?
Tomitake
Hahahah! I see you're good with jokes. Anyway, what I'll teach you about... Are those little moments called "Flashes".
You know, sometimes you're walking around and you witness an unique moment! Something you can just not miss!
Fred
Oh, I know what you're talking about. There's some traps I just wish I could burn into my mind...
Tomitake
And that's what "flashes" are for!
You take out your camera, get a picture, and... Boom! Appreciate it! Let your brain do the rest of the work!
You just gotta really focus on the end result. Analyze what's in front of you as best as you can.
It might even give you new ideas.
That's why I like photographing so much. It's the only hobby that allows you to keep those moments with you.
Fred
Flashes, huh? Interesting.
Leon
I see, so I need to burn the moment into my mind and be creative?
Tomitake
Yep! In fact, I think I'm witnessing a pretty cool moment here myself.
Let me take a picture of you two.
Tomitake Flash! Tomitake Flash! Tomitake Flash!
Done! Thanks for giving me this rare sight of multiple people in the NXT arena!
Fred
U-Uhhh... You're welcome?
Tomitake
I think the Cagist is coming back. It's your turn to talk with him first, so I'll be leaving for now. See ya!
Leon
He turned out to be quite the nice guy... I kinda wanna try out those "flashes" myself.
My brain really needs some urgent stimulation with how little apple juice I've been drinking recently.
The Cagist
Leon, Fred. I'm back, and I have a request.
Fred
Just say it. This better not take long...
The Cagist
It's, uhhhh... I'll let Steph tell you.
Steph
I'm tired, you know! I'm tired of how Hunter's been behaving lately!
He's not been a good boy. Not at all!
That's why he needed to be taught a lesson. At least until he shows some progress.
The cage will be locked on extra tight, until NXT draws a single dime.
You got it, Hunter? Huh? You got it? Or do you want it to hurt a bit more?
The Cagist
Y-Yes, S-Ste- no, I mean... Ma'am...
Fred
...Geez, she looks like a cunt.
Leon
...
She's such a... Dominant woman...
He's straight up getting... Emasculated...
...That's rad!
Brilliant, Ada, brilliant! That's how you should treat a man that doesn't respect you!
You pick him up, and slam him by the side just like that! Boom, no getting up!
I think I could adopt that technique of hers.
...It'll be like carrying a part of Ada within me!
Fred
Leon? Are you okay? Why did you take a picture and then tear it in half?
Leon
Ah? Kinda lost myself to my inner thoughts for a minute. What's up?
Fred
You didn't hear it?
The Cagist, he wants us to do him a final favor.
He may have called us B+ players, but he believes in the story we can tell.
He wants two best friends clashing in the ring...
He says that could be the thing that pops NXT's rating, and then his wife would finally free him!
Leon
Oh, so I just gotta kick some asshole in the he-
Wait, YOU?
Fred
Glad to see that's what you think of me, buddy!
Maybe a few Coolsville Suplexes will scramble your brains right.

The Truth About Ada[edit | edit source]

Fred
Hah, to think we could go like this with NXT rules, too!
Leon
You almost left me dehydrated...
Tomitake
Tomitake Flash! Tomitake Flash! Tomitake Flash!
Fred
Huh? We had a spectator?
Leon
You didn't notice? I guess he did come in pretty late.
Fred
Wait, then that means... We succeeded?
Leon
One is bigger than zero. We increased viewership, no matter how you look at it.
Fred
Damn, the miracle happened...
Leon
Now, let's get our juicy reward, shall we?
Ada, baby, I'm coming!
The Cagist
Very well, I guess you DID technically accomplish your objective.
No arguing with that... I'll tell you the truth.
Question is, are you ready for it?
Sometimes, what goes on behind the scenes is better left untold.
Leon
No... You can't mean...
I-Is Ada okay? Please tell me she's alright!
I-I'll be her knight in shining armor if she needs to be saved! I'll fight anyone for her!
The Cagist
Leon... You might regret your decisions when you hear about what she's been up to.
As you know, Ada is a famous spy.
Leon
Yes! She's so cool, too. I love the way she uses her grappling hook to get away from me at every possible opportunity!
Fred
...You never learn, do you?
The Cagist
And you do know what being a spy entails, correct? Doing things you wouldn't normally do.
Leon
Yeah! I'm sure she wouldn't spread those dangerous viruses if she had a choice!
The Cagist
That's not what I mean, but... Uhhh... You know, let's say, influential members of society.
You must be aware of her personal connections with them, right?
Leon
Of course! She's apparently good friends with Steven Sonozaki, for example!
The Cagist
The connections run deeper, Leon... Deeper...
Let's say, to keep up the façade, things get physical sometimes.
Leon
T-They try to beat her up? No way...
The Cagist
Leon, it's more like... Her relationship with John Clemens, do you remember?
Leon
He was also violent towards her?! U-Unforgivable!
The Cagist
...I'm gonna need to spell it out for you, won't I?
Leon, Ada's last job was...
Being undercover as a hostess. Sucking and fucking old men for information.
Leon
...
Fred
...Leon! Wait!

Orders for The Cagist[edit | edit source]

The Cagist
Are you really gonna request that from me?
I'm not sure I can handle that much work.
Please... Not like this...
I don't have the time. Steph won't allow me to...
Huh? If I'm not careful with your information... "That man" will come after me?
F-Fine... It's a promise, then.
