Desperado had been left in the dust it seemed, though he never did say he was joining them yet. Strolling through the hallways, he ascended to the second floor poking his head in various rooms only to find them ransacked. The places were mostly hovels for remnants of navis long since passed. He noticed the group poised for... something. Walking past them, he poked his head in more rooms before coming to one that overlooked the entrance. Maybe... well it was old. Approaching the windows, Desperado tapped on the glass a little, looking up and down the pane. One thing caught his eye though, two navis standing outside, one surrounded by Viruses, the other just standing by. Walking back to the hallway that Russet and Fulgur were opening the door in.
"Hey were you guys expecting company? There's some navis outside fighting viruses I think..."
Golden motes of data converged at Legion's heels, quickly forming into a familiar tetrahedron. A mystery data. It soon shook and swelled violently behind the navi until one of it vertices touched Legion. Without any time to react, the data exploded like an over filled balloon, sending thousands of zenny everywhere with small particles of data here and there. Legion gains 350 EXP & 3,500 Zenny
The loud pop from the data however, was loud enough for even those within the ONB base to hear it clearly, those too close would hear nothing but ringing for a moment.

Fulgur nods."O-ok..Mr. Kidd." As Russet nods, preparing himself, Fulgur begins to open the door. There was no telling what was behind it...Then Des speaks out. Oh yeah, those two. But,things had been peaceful. He walks to the window, then freezes.
That one navi...."Oh no......." He dashes past Russet."I'm sorry, sir! That door will have to wait!!!!" He runs down the steps, nearly taking a tumble.At the loud bang, he does,jumping in surprise and landing wrong,rolling down the steps and skidding across the floor."........Ow...."
He hops up, and runs to the entryway. The young navi exits, running over to Ion, tugging at his sleeve."Excuse me, sir! If you and the navi you're conducting business with could step inside out of t-the cold, I'm sure you two could come to a agreement." He ignores the mettuars and Legion, though not without a wary glance.C'mon....Get away....Agree to go inside and get to safety...
All this commotion over one navi? Who was this guy? Fulgur seemed rather frightened of him. But in the time he'd known the navi, he seemed frightened of just about everything. Strolling along the hallway into the main control room with Kidd, Desperado spun one of the chairs around and fell into it, an audible creaking sound coming off of it.
"You got the script ready Kidd? We should probably be outside when it works its magic. I'd hate to get caught up in the script's workings and get attacked by it. Besides we can meet up with your friends outside."
Kidd loaded the Clean & Repair script into the terminal and then gunned it down the hall before jumping out the adjoining window....only to land in a soft snow bank near the entrance. When he recovered, he looked around, seeing another familiar face. It seemed that these navis were still arguing over a mystery data. Kidd didn't have time to deal with them though. But at the same time, a huge fight in front of the new base for the gdoup would kind of be counterproductive. So, Kidd walked up to the three navis.
"So....mind telling me what's so special about this mystery data? Because you guys have been standing here for hours. Why don't you all come inside and rest up a bit? This cold weather isn't good for non-Ice navis."
Vince had been keeping a running monologue up in Ion’s ear as each new navi skirted around him and finally Legion stood leering through the icy midst at the confrontation that he had been dragged into. Ignoring all in the hopes of a response from the navi, Ion’s concentration broke as the GMD that Legion had owned burst with an ear shattering bang. With ears still ringing and his hearing shot for the moment, Ion’s hand was forced. Even moreso as Fulgur and Kidd came trekking back out through the snow to check up on him and the surrounding navi’s.
With a single wide sweep of his arm, the red mystery data, opposing navi and virus’ appeared to break apart, shattering into smaller and smaller cubes of data until they dispersed; the exact animation that so often accompanied deletion. Turning finally to face Fulgur and Kidd, he kept a wary eye on the navi that had simply stood peering at him throughout the encounter, “Wha-?! Hmmm? That? Oh sorry! I didn’t mean to give the wrong impression! My op and I were just preparing to run some test scenario’s for combat in Sharo. That was some old battle data that I was modifying so it would run appropriately.” Giving a nod over his shoulder, an operator screen popped up and the face of Vince could be seen grinning and waving back at the navi’s around Ion, adding his own sentiments he apologized for the troubles they had caused, ”Sorry for any misunderstandings! I thought we’d be alone a little longer in this remote part of the network! Definitely didn’t think we’d attract so much attention! How about we take a break Ion?”
Smiling in spite of the biting cold, Ion’s eyes passed swiftly over the space where the navi had been moments ago. It had worked exceptionally well. Accepting their invite with an open smile, Ion replied easily, ”I’d love to come inside, if you guys don’t mind! I’m starting to lose feeling in my toes from standing there so long, haha!”
((OOC: I may not be able to reply much until late Tuesday >_<. Taking a road trip this weekend. I'll try post when I can, even if their short though!))
No warning... Whatever. Pushing off the ground as the script began to load in, Desperado slammed out of the upper window as well, arcing down into the soft snow below. Landing with a soft 'pomf' sound leaving a navi shaped mark in the mound of snow nearby. Wow this stuff was cold. Getting up from his imprint, Desperado dusted himself off and placed his hands in his pockets, walking the the rest of the group... minus one. Did we forget one?
Oh right.. That one Heel Navi... Russet.
Desperado shrugged, seemingly at nothing as he stood by the group, looking at the building before him. Covered in snow, it stood unchanging for a moment. Desperado wondered if it would shunt other navis out...
Sure enough. The building shortly was encased in a prison-like grid. By an unseen force, Russet was quickly dragged through the hallways and thrown out the broken front door and into yet another mound of snow. With all living navis accounted for, the building seemed to start its reconfigure program.
Snow fell all around them constantly at an average rate, but in the grid, time seemed to have stopped entirely. Closing in on the building, it quickly conformed to the size and shape of the original building. The ground shook ever slightly, threatening to rain snowfall from the mountains above upon the building and the group below. It soon stopped however, and the whole area seemed to stop snowfall entirely, snowflakes frozen in midair.
The building's particles of data exploded outward into a dome made up of code strings. Broken from their cohesive form but complete strings regardless upon closer inspection. As they rotated slowly around the network, streams of code swirled into the previous location of the ONB building, creating the structure from scratch in a tornado of data. Foot by foot the building grew as if naturally as the dome around the area thinned. The whole process taking only a few minutes entirely. As the final line of code formed the tip of the building, it looked good as new, power on and fully lit. The door standing open into a well lit lobby area, welcoming those into its warm embrace from the biting winds of Sharo's network. With the script completed, the snowfall resumed once more. Desperado looked to Kidd with an amused look.
"Think you might have grabbed reformat on accident."

Fulgur blinks as Kidd And Dev approach."W-wait...d-did you a-activate the s-script?! W-what about Mr. R-russet?!" Thankfully,said navi is dragged out before it begins. He breathes a sigh of relief,"G-good...you're s-safe...", then looks at Ion, who explains that he had just been setting up something for training.
"I-I see, sir...." Fulgur nods, then Vince appears."......." The young navi stares at him, then suddenly grins,dashing close enough to examine him."You look like us!! But...different..Youre rather big, unless that's just the transmission....What's it like, living in a non data realm?!" It was rather obvious he'd never seen a human before...Realizing how he was acting, Ful steps back, embarrassed."U-uhm...s-s-sorry..Er...y-yes, please c-come in where its w-warm.."
Then Legion steps up. Fulgur watches him warily, his headband unfolding slightly. It seemed instinctual, and resembled the folded back ears of a wolf."Y-yes....a short while, a-at least...." The young navi still remembered how he'd literally been torn apart, thanks to this navi.
Having been to the control room before, it didn't take long for Kidd to find it again. Accessing the terminal once more, he started writing a new script that would identify the base as belonging to the new group, instead of being an ONB base.
"Hm....we need a name."
The name was the only thing for the Moment that be didn't know for this script.
Having watched the building fully reform, a short shiver went up Desperado's spine. It was certainly cold out here, that's Sharo for ya though. A momentary through of his operator passed his mind, before it wandered off elsewhere.
Turning back to the rest of the group, he could see everyone bringing it closer rather than standing further away from each other. As Fulgur ushered others into the building, Desperado saw the one which stood out from the rest of the group, though. A black aura surrounded him, but auras were common enough that the color could mean anything. Approaching the navi, his hands in his pockets, Desperado smiled as he neared speaking range with Legion. Shouldering up to him, Desperado leaned in and wrapped his arm around Legion's neck, not as a grapple, but as if an old friend had snuck up on him with a warm gesture.
"Hey man you a friend of these guys? Why don't you come in where its warm? You can't just keep your aura up forever, why not relax a little?"
