prototype_infiltraitor: (have you seen this boy)
Totally Officer Steve Austin. Definitely. Yep. ([personal profile] prototype_infiltraitor) wrote in [community profile] nexus_sages2015-09-18 07:55 am

been around the world and I can't find my baby

An old school police cruiser rolls into the Nexus, screeching to a halt, almost crashing into the Sign. The officer at the wheel calmly gets out, head swiveling, looking around on his way to the gaudy billboard. The man seems chipper; youthful. He grabs a brochure. Seemingly unconcerned with the running car (door still ajar), he glances at the brochure for a moment before once again looking around the Nexus. If he is astonished, he is handling it very coolly.

One question in particular occurs to him. He produces a Polaroid photograph of a young teenage boy, showing it freely to whomever will look. As with many police officers, his symmetrical appearance and amicable demeanor probably inspire trust in the average person.

"Have you seen this boy?"

The arrival of the car and its screeching near miss makes the monstrous mage startle, tail and ears both going upright as he clutches his staff. But then the man is out of the car and strolling about, getting informed and asking for information in turn.

When asked, Naugus glances at the polaroid and grumps, "Never seen him. Though you Overlanders tend to look a bit the same to me."
ixis: (Unimpressed)

[personal profile] ixis 2015-09-18 07:18 pm (UTC)(link)
"Humans. You're called something different where I come from and the term is hard to replace." Though he does at least put an effort into it when Verity is there to remind him it might offend!

"Why are you searching for this boy?"
ixis: (Roll Eyes)

[personal profile] ixis 2015-09-18 07:38 pm (UTC)(link)
"Do I look like an Overlander?" He puts out his arms as if inviting a second look. If he knew he was being sized up for that or a machine, he'd probably spit. "And how sure are you this boy has found his way to the Nexus?"
ixis: (Annoyed)

[personal profile] ixis 2015-09-18 08:00 pm (UTC)(link)
"I've not. Granted, I'm not in a habit of getting the names of every man and child that comes through here, as there is a great deal of them. Though you may take comfort in the fact this place does not allow harm to come to its inhabitants, barring some kind of catastrophe, of course. So if you John Connor is here, he will remain unscathed."
ixis: (Cape Tug)

[personal profile] ixis 2015-09-18 08:13 pm (UTC)(link)
He notices the tic in the man's expression, but doesn't particularly care what the situation is with that. Instead, Naugus shrugs before leaning on his gem-tipped staff.

"It's a meeting places of realities. And in-between world. There is little rhyme nor reason for it drawing who it does. We appear to universally stumble into it. Having a way back home is uncertain as well. Some are able to move freely from this place and their world, others are trapped."

An older, neatly-suited doctor is sitting nearby, staring at the sign when the car appears. He doesn't seem too put out that the police cruiser is blocking his view now. He reaches for a pair of reading glasses and puts them on...not quite far enough for him to actually read with them. It's possibly habit and not need. He looks the picture over.

"He looks vaguely familiar, but I'm almost certain I haven't treated him. I'm sorry."

The vampire takes a look at the picture again, frowning. He makes a show of taking his time over it, but he's shooting looks at the police officer when he thinks he's unobserved.

The police officer might notice other odd things about the vampire, such as a distinct lack of breathing, except when he speaks. "John Connor is a fairly common name. The Irish do get around." He shakes his head. "I don't remember seeing him, but that doesn't mean much around here."

Edmund gives a light laugh and folds his glasses away into a coat pocket. "I only just arrived today. It seems to be a Nexus, a meeting point of different universes in the multiverse. How it manages to exist without causing catastrophic collisions of different universes is beyond me. As is the matter loss between universes. Unless it's just some sort of collective hallucination, and we're really all still in our own universes."

[personal profile] plaguedoc 2015-09-18 08:43 pm (UTC)(link)
"Don't laugh, it's entirely...and I'd say, more than likely possible. Or we're all just reflections of matter, interacting here as our home universes are squeezed into a black hole and emerge from the other side just slightly different." Edmund stopped and thought about it. "Astrophysics is always so interesting." And nocturnal, for the most part. Another plus, in his book.

"I imagine we'll get out the same way we came in. My portal blinks in and out of existence. Hopefully I won't end up in New Jersey when I head back."

It's strange to see another police officer. Especially one who is so reckless. Still, maybe it's an American thing. Officer Suou doesn't pretend to know.

He adjusts his tinted glasses and approaches, a concerned look flitting across his features.

"I must confess I have not. Has he been abducted? A run away?" This was a strange place to come looking for a child, but then again, there were an awful lot of unsupervised minors here in the Nexus.
sumarusfinest: (Freeze!)

[personal profile] sumarusfinest 2015-09-19 08:38 pm (UTC)(link)
"Understood." Officer Suou frowns visibly before taking a small notepad out of his jacket pocket. Yes, he does have a holster for his nine millimeter in his suit jacket as well.

"What is his name? Height? I'll start a patrol around the Nexus. Two sets of eyes will be better than one."

A Sig SAUR P220 as a matter of fact. It's gotten him through the end of the world more than once.

"Connor, John." Katsuya makes note and scribbles a brief description of the child in the photograph in neat Japanese quickly.

"I'll try not to look authoritative then." Katsuya gives a reassuring sort of small smile before flipping the notebook shut. "Are you certain he's come in here? If he's gone to another world, he could be literally anywhere or anywhen."

"Of course." It was only prudent to check the Nexus proper, first. It was the hub linking all these worlds. It would be the most logical place to start looking.

"I know my way around the park district at the edge of the forum fairly well." He should, since that's where the portal to his world is. "I'll start looking there. Shall we agree to meet back here at a set time? How will I find you should I locate this John Connor or any clues to his whereabouts?"
