The flames of Russet's aura rose up and illuminated the room a little further. With shadows dancing across the walls as the flames licked back and forth. The light from Russet's aura as well as the flashlight-like illumination from his charging turrets were much harsher than the soft glow of the error message on the screen. The navi stirred a little, a groan escaping them. they slowly lifted their hat to see where the light was from.
"Ngh.. Who turned on the li..."
A clearly male voice came forth, though it was unwilling to finish his sentence. Dumbfounded to be staring straight down the barrel of a weapon. A quick kick back and the navi flailed backwards on his chair as it crashed to the ground. Quickly righting himself behind the seat of the chair, the navi spoke hurriedly like the words of one with a gun to their head.
"Woahwoahwoahwoahwoah! Hey guys I was just getting some sleep here. I thought no one used this place anymore. I didn't think trespassing on old ONB property would be punishable by deletion! We can talk this out right? Just... DONT SHOOT!"

Fulgur blinks as the navi jumps back, shouting, begging them to put their guns down. The young navi slowly lowers his, but keeps it activated. Speaking softly and sincerely, he looks at the lone navi." I a-apologize. We've been ambushed before, and greiviously wounded, by unassuming navis,and we're very cautious at the moment. In the end, we mean you no harm directly, and only wish to defend ourselves. I hope you may forgive us, and I'm sor-sorry if we frightened you.Is there anything y-yiu can tell us? W-we want to make this our h-home."
The navi rose up slightly from his would-be fortified position. A hand on the seat of the chair as his three guests lowered their weapons.
"Ya'know, some people might call a preemptive defense to be more like an attack. But anyway, I just kinda wandered in here a while ago and figured it might be a nice place to get some rest. The viruses here are pretty small so I figured if I didn't bother them they wouldn't bother me. All I really know is that the ONB hasn't used this place in quite some time, and that the lights were on when I got here despite no one else being here... If you guys wanna hole up here I don't care. Why do you need a home anyway? Don't you guys have Operators?"

Fulgur sighs in relief as everyone relaxes. Good....no one would be getting hurt this time around...He looks at the navi, his shyness taking over now that things seemed to be calm, and then glances at Russet in concern, laying a comforting hand on the bronze navis shoulder.Sure, Russ looked like a Heel, but he hadn't attacked them, and been very willing to help, besides.Listening closely, the young navi shakes his still armored head."N-no...I was born from the net i-itself, a-as far as I k-know..."
"I think it's generally polite to give your name first if you want another's, but you were the ones wavin' around busters so I'll let it slide. The name's Desperado... What's your group even for anyway?"
Desperado righted the chair he fell in and returned it to the terminal after picking up his hat which had unfortunately fallen in the confusion. The room was still rather dark and Desperado approached the group, mumbling to himself slightly as he reached to the light switch on the wall near the doorway. The lights in this room were working better than most, and while the dust-like data still floated in this room, the computers looked mostly untouched. Some boxes with various scripts sat next to the wall.
With the light on, Desperado was much easier to see. His purple coat stayed open save for the loose belt around his waist adorned with bullets. His sleeves rolled up to his elbows with fingerless black gloves on his hands. His other shirt was also unbuttoned much, revealing what seemed to resemble human skin, a trend more common with recent navis that seem to emulate human forms more closely. A loose tie around his neck as well made his appearance slightly more disheveled, though he removed it and threw it aside as he realized he still had it on.
"You guys wanted to use this room for something right?"

Fulgur blinks when Desperado rebukes them slightly for not introducing themselves first, but does so himself, turning on the light. As he does so, Fulgur retracts his helmet, not feeling they will be going into combat with this navi."I-Im so sorry, Mr. Desperado, I'm F-Fulgur Anima." At Rado's question. the young navi nods."W-well...we're wanting to g-get things running again, I-I believe..."
Desperado folded his arms as they explained their goal. It was certainly a prospect, the ONB hasn't been nearly as active recently he supposed.
"Replace the ONB? Thats a pretty big feat for a group of three navis. No way you can get the same coverage as a worldwide organization. But at least its something to do. What with this Juno guy still looming over us. Sure I'll hang around a bit I suppose. That box of scripts over there might have something to help clean the place up if we're so inclined."
