Description: The latest experiment of NESTS, Farseer #1F4, awoke from his slumber and sought to escape. In the midst of the escape, NESTS sent one of their operatives to deal with detaining the subject.
It is a remote laboratory in the middle of nowhere. This place was constructed to not only use the lands that were undisturbed by the natural elements, but would be the least likely place to visit by any traveler. This remote laboratory was perfect for housing a few unsavory projects.
However, there was no one to save them in case something went wrong.
And something DID go wrong.
"THE SUBJECT HAS ESCAPED! THE SUBJECT HAS ESCAPED! ALL UNITS MOBILIZE TO DETAIN SUBJECT!"
Sirens blared its loud, aching noise. It resonated through the entire facility. As the blaring siren echoed through the halls, men were scrambled to mobilize.
Within one certain hall..
An man wearing heavy padding and a protective faceplate fell flat on the ground.
The cause of it was a large, dark-skinned man who had a very stocky build about him. He is wearing a simple black jumpsuit with his hoodie up. The eyes are lit with a greenish glow. "Tsch... Buster."
As he walks along the hallways, behind him are a row of bodies. Many of them spasm as what appears to be voltage runs its course within them. They have all been slain before the man.
There has been an alarm on one of the subject detention. The sort of alarm Eve had been warned about. However, Eve was not any sort of agent. She had her own special talents, something that set her apart from the other agents and security guards of this place.
They had tried to subdue the test subject with more regular mains, but alas they had proven ineffective. They didn't want to come to this, out of fear of damaging him beyond worth, but they had no choice at this point.
Eve had been given simple orders at that point : neutralize the subject and make sure he would stay alive. However, she had been asked to use extreme caution due to the nature of his powers.
This is truly all she needed. Orders and objectives to follow.
At the end of the hallway, the door opens up. Only one person was sent to stop him : a young girl, wearing a dark magenta leather outfit over her body, as if it was mostly composed of leather straps all bound over her body.
She spares a quick glance, assessing the damage done by this test subject. This was for his own good... Another one with special powers who could not control himself, who killed many because of his powers. This is why they needed person like Eves, to control those potential threats.
The girl coldly glares at Ketih from a distance, "This ends all now..." Eve says loudly to him, the air slowly crackling with electricity, her chi manifesting and building up around her, small arcs of electricity escaping her body much like Keith's own, her hair rising up on her head from the statics charges.
Farseer #1F4 takes a deep breath, hunching over while looking his eyes glaze in front of him. He is exhausted. He can feel his brain rattling from the pressure of the place. However, he cannot fall now. The subject grits his teeth before he makes his way towards the halls.
...Then a little girl makes her way to stand between him and freedom.
"Stand down, kid." He narrows his gaze, illumination sparking to life from the sockets. He tightens his fist before he lifts his arms up in a guarding position. He takes up his boxing stance, looking over the little girl that he towers.
Trying to keep his powers in check, Farseer #1F4 opts for a more physical approach.
As he rushes over towards the girl, he shifts forward with a body check; his right arm swoops underneath for a fist driving straight towards the young girl's gut witht he intent of knocking the wind out of her.

The girl in front of Keith was in the blossom of her teenage years. She seems only a child compared to the soldiers who tried to take Keith down. However, unlike them, she obviously had something special.
Just like Keith, she had special powers of her own. Special training especially to deal with persons like him.
The girl stands in between Keith's freedom, steadfast and resolute, not afraid of his imposing posture and bulky frame. Most would expect him to break her in half, but Eve was confident in her abilities. They asked her to stop him, and she would not disappoint them.
As if to answer Keith's sentence, Eve's left leg slides back as she gets into a combat stance. She did not mind to wait, she had excessive focus as she was building up energy inside of her. Enough that the lights in the hallway were starting to shine brighter than before.
She does not falter when he charges her and braces for his charge. Her arms move over to block his fist and to protect her guts. She answers the blow with a scream of her own, sending a powerful discharge of electricity in his body, meant to stun him as she holds on to Keith's wrist. She quickly moves her hand toward Keith's armpit and she flings him over her shoulder into an armtoss to slam him down to the ground.
COMBATSYS: Keith just-defends Eve's Power Throw!

Another one of these operatives. The escaping subject has had enough of these people.
That incoming body-check was guarded pretty well. Although his oppressor releases a discharge, the burly man grounds himself well to the lifeless ground. These labs have been the testament of creation and destruction in a cold fashion. This unsavory ground will only serve to let the energy run through him, but the stalwart boxer will brave it.
As the electricity runs along his body, Keith grits his teeth while allowing the girl to heft her arm underneath his armpit and toss him.
However, she will find that Keith has used the leverage to his advantage. He shifts his body with the flow of the throw to catch himself and land on his feet. If she is still unlucky to grip him, Keith will use his massive muscles to pick her up while she tries to keep her hands on him.
A left hand will come out for a haymaker to strike her right at her cranium to send her flat on her face.
"Take a nap."
COMBATSYS: Eve interrupts Haymaker Punch from Keith with Electrifying Takedown EX.

Eve 1/----===/=======|=====--\-------\0 Keith
The girl was a feather weight and Keith was easily able to lift her up as she held on to his arm. She blinks a few times though as she realizes Keith had been able to swiftly counter her grapple, the electricity she had used to stun him probably not enough to affect the adrenaline pumped man.
"Let's see how long before you go numb!" Eve shouts at him as he hurls his fist right for her face. The girl leaps up at the same time, his fist hitting the girl's midsection. She ignores the pain and use his fist as leverage, flipping her body up and twisting in midair so she can grasp Keith's head and traps it between her thighs, squeezing it tightly and locking it with her legs.
There's another sudden burst of electricity that leaves the girl's body as she seems to spin around Keith's head for a moment and then swings him around to slam him down.
There is a look of satisfaction as the burly man makes contact with the girl's face. There is a show of dominance in the way that he drives the fist downward in contact with the young girl's face. However, what was unexpected was Eve's resiliency as she used his fist as leverage in the same way that he used her throw to leverage himself.
As she takes to the air, Keith realizes that he handled the girl's midsection, farcry from the headshot he was going for. Instead, with Eve taking to the air, she twists her body to wrap her thighs along his head and squeezing him.
As the course of electricity running through his body, Keith gives off a writhing scream before she spins around his head and seeks to take him down. Keith, drawn by the force of the power before him, can feel his natural instincts taking over him.
The eyes illuminate once more, a pulse of energy is shot straight towards the girl, seeking to knock her off of him and to distance himself.
COMBATSYS: Eve blocks Keith's Kinetic Force.

Eve 1/---====/=======|=====--\-------\0 Keith
The blast of energy has the desired effect -- it knocks the girl away, sending her flying. Fortunately, Eve knows enough about throws and grapples to land gracefully, rolling on her back and absorbing a part of the throw, managing to get back on her feet swiftly. The impact of the langing still echoed hard in the hall though and made her wince some.
"That's impossible! I won't let you leave this place! You have to be neutralized... For your own good..." Eve straightens herself up and she moves both of her hands back, the electricity in her slowly forming and cackling at the tip of her fingers, forming a large ball of electricity. Her expression was cold and resolute. She was determined to stop him, no matter the cost. She thrusts her hands foward and sends a powerful lightning arc in Keith's direction with lots of smaller arcs that bursts in every direction from the main lightning bolt. Let's see how he handles Eve's discharges.

Farseer #1F4 cannot help but chuckle at the stranger as she tells him the possibility of getting out being at 'Impossible'.
"Only if I play by your rules, girl.." Keith gives a sneer while she starts gathering her electricity. Instead, the man tilts his head over to look for an opening. That lightning arc had shot in a way that he starts calculating his possible spots of avoiding the voltage.
Keith lunges underneath the incoming voltages, tucking his head down while bracing himself to absorb the impact. While he starts driving himself forward, Keith brings his fist downward and extends it out. The fist soars underneath to strike towards Eve's chin with the intent of knocking her off of her feet.
COMBATSYS: Keith successfully hits Eve with Drill Upper.

Eve 0/-------/=======|=====--\-------\0 Keith
The discharge of electricity results in more collateral damage than anything else it would seem as the smaller arcs of lightning causes plenty of sparks to erupt from the metallic part of the hallways they hit with.
Nothing betrays Eve's facial expression as she lowers her arms after the discharge. The blast seems to have made her sweat though, her hair no longer standing up over her head, as if she had just emptied herself of most of the electricity she has in her body.
The girl pants softly and she glares up at Keith. Despite the impressive feat he pulled off, she had no intention of giving up against him. She knew what failure meant and did not want to disappoint her superiors.
Despite the exertion and panting Eve had, the girl tries to move out of the way when Keith lunges at him but she's not fast enough to react, his fist hitting her right under her chin and knocking her off, sending her flying almost.
The girl manages to land on her feet some distance away -- staggering back not to fall, dazed by the blow. She shakes her head to try and shake it off, "I," She pants, "Will," She shouts, "Not fail!!" She bolsters herself.
With that last shout, Eve's body bursts with a surge of electricy, lightning arcs erupting from her as she shouts and uses her remaining reserves of energy to replenish the charges of electricity she had in her body, her hair spiking back up from the sudden voltage she gets.
COMBATSYS: Eve gathers her will.

Eve 1/----===/=======|=====--\-------\0 Keith
"Nnggh. Stubborn little brat."
The experiment grows annoyed. So far, he has managed to avoid using his powers too much. That has worked in his advantage against the girl. However, he cannot let the girl get any rest. While he could wait her out, she is proving to be dangerous if he gives her any more leg room.
So what does he do?
Keith is rushing forward, trying to gain momentum to close the distance between himself. He prepares to brave through the surge of lightning erupting from her to get close to the girl.
He is going to tackle her down on her back.
Should Keith get the girl flat on her back, it will allow his massive body mount and tower over the smaller, frailer form before him.
Keith intends to wind his fist back and start slamming each fist back and forth against her face to knock any intent of stopping him out of her head.
COMBATSYS: Keith successfully hits Eve with Ground n' Pound.

The young girl tries to brace for impact -- though considering her size, it felt like a girl would be able to stop a train just by standing there. She moves her arms to try and block him and resist his shove but his larger body manages to tackle and pin her to the ground relatively easily.
Eve growls and squirms in pain underneath the man and she tries to move her arms to block his fists but unfortunately, after the few first hits, she is too dazed to react properly to his attacks, which allows him to punch her a few good times, making her nose and lip bleed.
The pain was only temporary though, she knew it... And soon all would be okay. The girl attempts to get a hold of Keith's fists as he continues to plunder and smack her and she lets a loud shout escape her throat, unleashing a massive discharge of electricity meant to knock him out of her, holding to him long enough to cause the discharge to be harmful even to her in some way.
The blast causes arcs of electricity to burst from her body in all direction from this desperate measure to free her from his grasp.

Keith is making sure that he is beating some senses into the girl, even if it means that she will be unconscious. While she is down, he will use that time to get out of the laboratory. That's the ticket. Just leave the laboratory and figure out who he is.
However, he experiences a mental lapse along the way.
It feels like static in his mind. It scrambles him, leaving him disoriented. "Sh-shit." He hisses as the ringing passes. This gives Eve time to get a hold of his fists.
Just as the girl releases a massive discharge...
Keith clenches against the burst of energy and he twitches at the shocking grasp for her to break out of his hold. But no. Keith is not done...
He is not done by a long shot.
Although Keith is pushed off the girl, he merely stumbles backwards while he clutches his head. The eyes illuminate with that ominous energy once more.
With a flick of his hand, he sends out the command to haunt the girl...
To Eve, she may find herself feeling like that she is set on fire by the strange, alien energy. The Psycho Power only gives tingling feelings, but to the mind... it is almost as if her body was set on fire.
COMBATSYS: Eve dodges Keith's Ignition.

Eve 0/-------/--=====|=======\=------\1 Keith
Keith might not have a choice -- Eve is tenacious, she is not going to let him leave as long as she still has a bit of energy left inside of her. She will devote her body, mind and soul to achieve the goals that were given to her.
It was her mission, her purpose. Failure was not an option.
The surge of electricity manages to get Keith off from her. The discharge probably too much for him to bear to carry on, which allows Eve an opportunity to roll out from under him and away.
Eve straightens up, panting and exhausted. All this energy she has been drawing from to unleash her electrical blasts.
Eve squirms a bit and takes a few steps back, feeling that haunting presence trying to force its way into her mind. The girl shakes her head, "No, no!" She shouts. As if to force the presence out of her mind, she unleashes more energy from her inner reserves, causing more lightning arcs to burst from her hair and arms, shielding her mind momentarly with the electric field that builds up around of her.
Eve then rushes over Keith, zooming back and forth around of him, leaving a blurry trail in her path aiming to strike him in various pressure points over his body, discharging a small amouth of electricity every time until she finishes up with a large surge of electricity to blast Keith.
COMBATSYS: Eve successfully hits Keith with Power Surge.

The tenacious girl manages to get the discharge off enough to put Keith at a major disadvantage. His attempts to blow her away with his energy did not go as intended. The lightning arcs surround the frail body, which saves her and shields her body.
However, as she rushes over at him, Keith looks towards his left and right as she leaves a blurry trail. Various pressure points are struck, "ugh!" His eyes widen as each part of his body meets pain from the discharge of electricity.
The electrical burst finally comes forth and does him in, a burst of energy sends him spawling across the air and he lands on the ground rather harshly.
His mind is starting to blank out. Voltage of lightning emanates from his hands. An aftershock effect left by the girl.
And then it happens.
Eyes light up as his body becomes a husk. He starts staggering onto his feet. "Uggh...."
Blue lightning crackles around him. Pressure builds up within the laboratory. The walls are starting to tear apart and the ground cracks. "Urrrgggggghhh..." A blue dome of energy surrounds the taller man as he walks straight towards the girl.
First, Keith drives himself forward to slam his fist towards the girl's chin, arcing that arm out towards her gut. He'll follow through with shoving his other arm forward to release an invisible force to send the girl sprawling back.

The burst of speed that comes from Eve's attack comes to a sudden stop when Keith manages to drive his fist and connects with Eve's chin. It causes the electricity around her to dissipate, as if the charges were fleeting her body from the impact.
She barely has the time to react to the incoming arm swung her way and Eve's arms rapidly move over to curl up around Keith's arms, latching to it desperately despite the invisible force that pushes her, as if she didn't want to let go.
A lout screech escapes Eve's throat as she unleashes the remaining bits of energy inside of her straight into Keith, letting all the electricity surge and flow through her and him freely, hurting herself in the process, slipping out of consciousness.
When her discharge is done though, her grip falters on Keith,s arm and she lets go, falling limply on the ground, totally spent.
She had failed, even if she fought to the very end, desperatedly. She had been their last line of defense to prevent him from escaping this laboratory, alas..

Keith is close... It is coming. That dreadful feeling that death is creeping within him. It is that feeling that invaded his thoughts, his body, and soul. Death. That poisonous death was creeping forth to send his body into a shock that would had resulted in the destruction of his enemy.
This strange power. It almost killed him.
However, for this time, it was enough to jolt him back to life and keep his mind in the game. That jolt was enough to refocus him. Keith managed to send her flying from the punch and Psycho Power combo.
There it is.
That edging towards death.
Voltage runs its course through his body, "Ugggh...!" He tries to fight it off, but it keeps eating at him
However, just as Keith attempts to get away from the girl...
She is trying to send a discharge out his way.
He is already undergoing one grave pain. He is not going to endure another. He just collapses on the side of the walls, putting him out of the trajectory of the discharge of lightning. "Ugghh..."
After the effects wear off, Keith is left panting and trying to breathe. He lowers his head towards the fallen girl. He observes her for one moment.
"...Pain in the ass."
Keith decides to reach out towards the beaten girl, gazing over at her once. There is a grin that forms, "...But you gave me one hell of a fight. I think I'll keep you."
And he hefts her over his shoulder. Why not? Every winner should take -their prize.
Along the way, Keith is able to see a small ID card hanging at the entrance. It seems to have been carelessly left around. The picture matches his own face. In the picture, it says, 'Keith Walker'. ...Everything else seems scratched off. "Huh.."
