As it happens the entire team is up and waiting at the elevator at the same time. As the doors slide open, the assembled group sees Juliet waiting inside. She immediately shies away into the corner, seemingly uncomfortably in her own metal skin.
"So...Uh, y-you all...You all got the message, too? I, uh...I thought maybe it was Byrd messing with me. ...Again."
She tucks herself into the corner, staying quiet the rest of the way down to the hangar. AS the doors slide open again, the kids see a few changes have been made. The mechs that Casey had been working feverishly on for the last week have been packed up and placed into the holding bay with all the rest. In the middle of the hangar is a large square platform, with a large pillar extending up several more feet above the platform itself. Over the middle of the center of the platform hangs a large metal hook, used to hold up D-52's mecha when their legs are being serviced.
Standing on the edge of the platform is...A wunderkind. But the children's systems aren't identifying them, and they're not in the system. She stands just over four feet tall, and their armor is black and dark grey. They wear a long black...Robe? Over their suit, and their short black hair hangs over their right eye. They're...Pretty androgynous, even for a preteen.
But the striking thing is the staff. At arm's length, they hold a staff nearly two and a half times taller than they are. Fat on both ends and skinny in the middle and clearly made of metal, it would be nearly impossible for a non-Wunderkind to hold up at all.
"Hi!" The Wunderkind says with a big grin. "My name's Dee-Aye. Like, the letter D, and the letter A. I'm really bored, so we're going to play a little game!"
DA thinks for a moment, biting her lower lip. "Maybe not a game, but...Well, we're going to play! I'm bored of pwning noobs on Duty's Shout Online, so I thought I'd come check you guys out!" She smiles sweetly at the group, shifting her weight. "We're gonna have a little play fight. If you win, I'll give you what's in that big, mag-locked box over there. See? I even drop loot! So when you're ready, grab your weapons and step up!"
