Welcome to True Path, an alternate universe My hero Academia RP set BEFORE the actual Series! We are at the beginning of the establishment of Hero society, come join us and help us create the wold of My Hero Academia.
G clapped his hands as now he and the other 3 were now the only ones left. Now it was time to talk "Ok. We all agree that Snowy cant be trusted that easily. He says he knows where Thunder is. But we dont know if thats the truth or if he is full of shit. So I figured an ex SWAT man and a guy who sounds like he has a zap like Quirk can handle this mission" G says as he reveals why he insisted that Aiden and Haywire stayed.
They needed to see if Snowy was being truthful, when he spouted that Thunder stuff. "I want you 2 to investigate Snowy's lead. If he's truthful, then we might have some good Thunder info, and we might get ourselves a new Storm Knight in Snowy. If he's full of shit and leads you in a trap." G shrugs "Well, you two have eachother. So you can just work your stuff and easily beat anyone and arrest this guy" G says casually
He was sure SWAT man and James can handle whatever is thrown their way. And besides, if this Snowy was fine, they were pretty much gucci. Now, what did they think. Well... honestly who cares, but whatever.

"You'll have a harder time arresting me than you'd think, and judging by the look you've given me earlier I think you can imagine why. Anyways, I'm not set on becoming a vigilante yet, truth be told I do not like getting my hands dirtier then I have to, hence why I am coming to you lot... The Storm Knights I mean. I am not in a position to pursue him myself, but I am more than willing to share what I know to have him taken down, and I imagine, once you confirm my claim, you'll be eager to do just that." Hideki would stay with his more polite tone coming through. It seemed that now that the group was smaller, he was finding his manners once more. For a rich boy who often attended large affairs with multiple people, he didn't seem to be handling that crowd as well as he normally might have.
"Thundershock lords over an underground city located beneath Kabuchiko. It literally spans the whole city. He takes in criminals and villains to live in his city so that they're safely out of the Heroes, and the Police Forces reach. You can find one of the entrances in the Crimson Dragon Tavern, and another more heavily guarded entrance in the staff room of the Fighters Arcade. I can't confirm if he himself lives down there, or if that's more of an operations centre for him though." Snow Demon would tell the group gathered there, taking his phone out of his pocket and igniting the screen. There was a brief flash of his background, a picture of a dark haired boy and a young blonde girl. It only lasted for a second though as he unlocked the phone and the screen changed. He opened up his map while offline, and zoomed into the two locations he had pinned to show both Haywire and... SWAT dude where he was talking about.
"Once these two head out, can I have a word with you, G right?" Hideki would ask as he then looked up from his phone towards G. If he was having the Storm Knights work for him, he wanted to be sure that if they ever ran into Miku, that they wouldn't hurt her. He didn't know the mess he was about to get himself into.

"Arresting is a thing I did in the past. Right now my body is more set on snapping femurs like twigs. Also, news flash boyo. You being here makes you as much as a culprit as any of us in the eyes of the law. Especially so, since you're witholding critical information about a wanted man." The inky lizard snarled, revealing a row of sharp fangs in a grin. He was not set on intimidation yet, but he never really lied either. He did really snap some femurs. Hell, he had bitten someone and drew their blood out as well. Granted, said someone also was virtually immortal.
The fact remained though, out of anyone there Aiden was surely the most drastic when it came to vigilantism. "And I wouldn't mind following the scent of your blood around. I welcome a challenge every now and again. Usually the small thugs either piss themselves or faint when they are face to face with me."
Then oily ink dragon slowly circled closer and closer to the new guy. He did like to play around with people, probably a byproduct of his more feral side his quirk brought up. He did enjoy when prey wiggled. "G here is being really nice with his choice of words, kiddo. We are not here to waste time, we are here to kick some villain ass into jail and it won't matter how. This is true for you as well, should you be a hoax. Allow me to translate his good cop speech in something much more realistic..."
Stopping right belly to belly, the three meter tall wyvern lowered his snout inches from "Snowy's" face. Coiling his tail around the boy, Aiden made sure his red slits bore into the guy's soul "You came here. You saw every participant of this meeting. As it stands, there is nothing guaranteeing us that you won't play the snitch with someone else just like how you are, supposedly, ratting Thundershock out right here and now. This makes you both a witness, a liability and a possible gap in our secrecy efforts, should you try to share anything about us."
Oh man, he was quite enjoying it now. Oh yeah. G was probably going to tell him to stop any moment now. It still would not prevent the inky black dragon from invading Hideki's personal space even further. Honestly, it was a shame there was no wall there, there would be more fun stuff he could do to get his point across.
"Perhaps you're confident that you can use what you know as blackmail material to protect yourself." Aiden growled, guttural sounds that were his version of a chuckle. "That would be extremely naive. So thread carefully, boyo and choose your words with care as well. As far as I know, if it does not kill it's allowed and you can be absolutely sure..."
Aiden raised one of his three fingered hand to show the sharp claws at the end of it and point/poke at the guy's larynx to get the message across. "...I have more than one way to ensure your silence without it killing you, should it be needed. It's gonna hurt real bad though...but I like when my prey squirms."
With that said and done, the ink dragon allowed the boy some respite by turning around and taking his pace to G's right. He stared at the guy's phone as he flashed some images. He would take notice of the lockscreen, as well as memorize the two access points.
"So this is basically a undercover recon mission, eh?" He stated, turning over to G now. "This looks like a lead, but my experience is screaming something at me. Something along the lines of 'it's too convenient'. If this underground city exists, I doubt getting in it will be as simple as walking inside a door. Maybe there are codes and stuff. Me and elec guy can sure do some snooping around, but Snowflake here should stay with you. Our first priority would be to access a reliable infil exfil way that won't alert Thunder's goons about our deal. We should really do Recon before calling a search and destroy. If we try to brute force it and blitzkrieg straight to the boss we'll be just met with resistance and end up wasting an opportunity that would surely not repeait itself."
Then, his attention was brought back to Hideki as he asked for private time with G. "No no no. How about you speak up your mind now, boyo? It is not nice to speak behind people's back. If it's this important, then we should know too."

After everyone except James, G, Aiden and Hideki had vacated the building he spoke to Aiden and James telling them it's obvious Hideki can't be trusted that easily and he put them in charge of seeing whether this lead that Frosty had brought them checked out or not. If it checked out they would have some valuable information, if it lead to a trap...well they'd deal with that if that time arises. James looked at Hideki when he mentioned they'd have a harder time arresting them than they think and that he isn't set on becoming a vigilante yet and he doesn't like getting his hands dirty hence why he came to them Sounds like a privileged spoiled brat who doesn't want to do anything himself he thought to himself If he can get me to Thunder though, I'll put up with it, within reason. Hideki explained that Thunder has a whole underground city located beneath Kabukicho and there's an entrance at the Crimson Dragon Tavern and more heavily guarded entrance at the Fighters Arcade "I agree with Aiden that we should scout it out before we actually go in there, blindly walking into the entrance of the most dangerous villains secret underground city is actual suicide," he told the group. Hideki then asked G if he could have a word to which Aiden said to share it with everyone "We don't have time for this, let's go scout this place out, if it's really that important G will tell us later, let's focus on the important stuff, like trying to take down the #1 criminal," he said to Aiden as he began to walk out of the warehouse
Snowy spoke how they would have a harder time arresting him, he also revealed that Thunder has an underground city beneath Kabuchiko. One of the entrences was the Crimson Dragon Tarvern, G wanted to facepalm so hard. He could've sworn he'd been there was. IT WAS RIGHT UNDER HIS NOSE.... LITERALLY!!!!!
Then Snowy wanted to have a word with G, which piqued the Vigilantes interest, he was curious what could this guy say. But before G could say anything to that, Swat boi Aiden came in kicking with his own threats and the like. He was a real edgelord with snapping femurs. As he went on, G looked at Haywire to see how he was reacting to this shit. G then turned to Aiden when he spoke to G.
"Yes, undercover recon. You can do that, right? I mean I'd go. But Im too well known to Thunder and his men. We need fresh talent that he doesnt know of. You swat boi and Haywire which I assume is a zappy boy with that name he's going on with. Also Snowy, he's like an inside man we got, right? You 3 seem like you're the best bet we have" G said with a shurg
Haywire finally spoke up then, he wanted to scout before going blindly. G basically agreed with his sentiment "Yes exactly. You 3 go on and recon. And then once you come back with some good info, we can all strategize a battle plan. And when I mean all, I dont mean just the 4 of us" G said, completely forgetting what he wanted to tell Snowy in the first place. Haywire and Aiden sort of made G's mind drift away in another direction.

Hideki's eyes slowly shifted from G towards the other man now talking down to him. Looks like he wanted to play good cop bad cop with G as the good guy, though his entire speech and attempt at intimidation just made him scoff. As if this man could intimidate him what with his background... since he was little he'd been exposed to things he knew no normal kid should see. Hidek's gaze turned dark and menacing as Aiden went on, Hideki just standing still and giving Aiden such a death stare it would kill him if it could.
"You don't scare me in the slightest you mutated piece of trash, so put the act away before you get hurt. In case you're ears don't work, I already stated I don't expect any of you to trust me immediately so that point is moot." Hideki retorted with a defiant and dangerous tone to his voice. The venom he spoke could only be compared to the very villains Hideki was sending them to seek out. He knew that none of this was going to be easy, but damn it was hard as hell to put up being around so many god forsaken commoners... He still felt like their place was securely under his boot, and that fact was definitely portrayed in the way that he spoke back to Aiden. He really needed to put a lid on those feelings if he was going to be successful here.
His eyes then shifted back towards G, their almost evil tint vanishing as he returned to a more normal expression before addressing him once more.
"I would go with them, but I'm also well known by Thundershock. That's actually what I was hoping to discuss with you while they checked out my Intel. I'm more then happy to stay here as collateral while they go if itll prove my honesty." He didn't want the mutt and the kid around for what he had to discuss with G, it was none of their damn business and the less they knew about his personal life the better.
"Ohohoh...now I REALLY want to see what color your insides are." Aiden snarled with a vicious grin. If this was not some sort of important business he would have loved to scuffle a little with the pretentious kid. "If you're staying, feel free to come by to scuffle anytime. As I said, I have a knack of breaking shins of little shits like you har har..."
He gave a single nod to G before moving over to join the redhead partner he was assigned for this mission. "I'll make sure to grab a few postcards when we're back. Don't smack the guy without me, G. I call dibs on his first fistfight around here." The large inky wyvern as he casually strolled outside to catch up with the other vigilante.
"Alrighty, so, we have a mystery town to crack open." Aiden's reptilian form seemed to melt, as a large excess of fluid ink splashed onto the ground. Some of it instead seemed to wrap around the vigilante's normal form as some sort of japanese styled armor/ninja outfit hybrid. Aiden's blue eyes glanced at Haywire. "If it's really that secret it will be unlikely we will be let in without some kind of code. First of all, we need to get us one of those panzy ass criminals that knows about the city and then ask him a few questions. If you have any idea on how to bait out someone like that, I am all ears."

G confirmed that he indeed wanted Aiden and James to partake in some undercover recon and asked if they could do that, mentioning that he'd go but he's well known to Thunder and his men as well as assuming that James' lightning powers could maybe help them out "Yeah it shouldn't be too big of a problem, just scouting some stuff out and then coming back, how hard can that be?" he said, though he was fairly certain it'd be a little bit more complicated than that. When Hideki called Aiden a mutated piece of trash James would shoot a spark past Hideki's head into a wall and shoot him a death glare, not being afraid to assert some authority over the spoiled rich kid, even if he was providing valuable information "Oi Frosty watch your tongue speaking like that around me or else I promise you, the next shot won't miss," he'd snarl with an equal amount of venom to Hideki's comment, after all if there was one thing that pissed off James, it was quirk discrimination. When Hideki mentioned he was also well known and would stay behind as collateral instead James would speak up "Yeah I think I speak for both Aiden and myself when I say we'd rather do it with just us 2, plus if he does come with us there's a chance he could set us up and alert whatever guards they have to what we're doing, also he seems like a prick," James would state bluntly. Aiden would then ask if he had any idea how to bait a criminal for them to interrogate "Since you're a foreigner we could set up a trap, since the low life criminals we're looking for right now would target the most vulnerable, with tourists being among that group, you could act like a tourist that's 'lost' in a shady area and when a thug makes his move, I jump in to spring the trap and we see what he has to say, or if you want I could play the part of the vulnerable tourist since I look fairly foreign from my half Australian side, but I think the base plan of the vulnerable tourist would be our best bet," James would tell Aiden, it was the easiest way to lure out a low life thug in his mind
Hideki wanted to tell something to G in private, but swat boi was pretending to be strong and edgy. So he threatened Hideki... joy. Hideki though didnt seem like he'll be intimidated by that and just tod him off, what slightly surprised G was James. He shot a lightning bolt spark thing past Snowy aka Hideki. James was surprisingly.... ehh... whats the word... something. Basically he didnt tollerate quirk discrimination. All in all, they all agreed that Hideki should stay with G while James and Aiden go and check out what Frosty boi told them
"Ok ok ok." he points then to Hideki as he speaks "You, escort or tell them everything they need to know" he then pointed to Aiden and James "YOU two. Go investigate that lead pronto. Go onward and plan and prepare for that mission." he then pointed to Hideki again "You. Stay here" and talk, but G didnt say that. If Hideki wanted to talk solo with G, then so be it.
He was curious what the kid had to say that was so secret. Whatever it was though had to take a back seat as James and Aiden needed to go start their mission and investigate

For a moment it looked like the Iris of Hideki's eyes would narrow into slits as a bolt of cool lightning soared past him and into the adjacent wall. He turned his dangerous glare towards James, his body already starting to condense and freeze over, an ice... something, forming in his hand as he readied to retaliate. However, G finally spoke up and the ice in his hand seemed to meld back into it and vanish.
'How dare this common piece of shit...' He began to think to himself angrily, though pulled his eyes away from James and back to G with nothing more than a scoff. No, as much as he hated these low life commoners, he needed them. He could act as high and mighty as he wanted, but if he acted against them then he'd never get the help he wanted from them.
"Next time you move against me, I won't hold myself back." He quickly warned James before he would reach into his pocket and retrieve a very old looking black phone. He then tossed it towards James before continuing to speak.
"I already told the idiots where to go, if they'd bothered listening to the intel instead of trying to intimidate me. Though allow me to repeat myself. The city is underground, so you wont find any tourists. The Crimson Dragon Tavern has one entrance, and another more heavily guarded entrance is in the staff room of the Fighters Arcade. This city is a safe haven for criminals and villains, you wont find many civilians there. If you do, they're most likely otherwise homeless. Sneaking around will just get you caught. Waltzing in is probably the safest option. Most, if not all villains know of the underground city. So pretend you're crooks or villains, and no one will think twice about you two being there." Hideki informed them quite simply, motioning towards the cell phone he had tossed James.
"Keep your cellphones off. Rumor has it Thundershock has someone with some kind of tech quirk monitoring the place. That's a standard burner phone used for newbies entering the city. Don't lose it." he said quickly and to the point, finally turning his back tot he two, waving his hand over his shoulder as if he was shooing them away. He would wait for the two to ask any more questions and take off, before addressing G.
"I apologize for how rude I've been. I'm not exactly used to being in these types of situations... Thank you for hearing me out." And with that Hideki would once more retrieve his personal phone, holding onto it a bit hesitantly as he looked up to the older man.
"There's someone I've grown to really care about that could be in some pretty serious trouble... She's... well she's a Hero bound to Thunder by blood... and I'd like to get her as far away from him as I can. Unfortunately I'm not in the position to do that on my own... so I wouldn't say it's necessarily a rescue mission as such but I was hoping you... might have ideas." He spoke up now, speaking lowly as he was embarrassed to be admitting his own feelings about another person... let alone someone who had been, until recently a commoner herself. He would later be forced into a marriage with her, as that was Thundershocks plan... but this was far beyond that... he just wanted to get her out from under this thumb, much like what he wanted for himself and his family.
Aiden nodded at the guy's plan. It was crude and unrefined, but it would work. "Yeah sure, whatever floats your boat. I don't really care how. So long that we get someone we can use and someone I can...coerce into giving us what we need to get into that lovely castle that is Thunder Underground."
Now that he thought about it, they would need disguises too. "We need to craft some baddy identities too. That, and get some edgy clothes to wear. Something like...black spiky armor or an analogue. We also need to make a name for outselves. Not a huge deal, but be known enough as criminals to not be blank slates. We could always capture two villains and just take their shit though. It'd be way faster."
It would be way faster indeed. Plus, it mean they would not need to go rob places or actually kill and maim people just for the sake of their double identity. "I can pull some favours with the police and get some names of some grunt type low lives we can go after. You have your phone. I'll meet you someplace in two days. Prepare your stuff. Once we go in, we'll be cut off from the rest until we finish. There's also a possibility to not come back so...get your mind focused."
With that, Aiden began making his way back to his crib. "See ya in 48 hours, kid."

James would catch the phone Hideki threw to him and then look at Aiden "Ok, so according to Frosty I guess we can just walk in and try to blend in I guess, also I disagree with the part about us making a name for ourselves, we're not trying to get in close with anybody in particular, we're just going into the underground city and seeing what it's about, so we should probably keep as low of a profile as possible," he'd suggest "If we draw too much attention to ourselves we could get found out, so I say we just scout around and keep our heads down," he'd finish his suggestion. Hideki would peak his interest when he mentioned a hero bound to Thunder by blood and he wanted to get her as far away from him as he could "If she's a hero she'd probably stay as far away from him as she could in the first place right?" he'd ask "I mean everyone knows that Thunder is bad news so that shouldn't be much of an issue," he'd say. Aiden would tell James that once they got in they'd be cut off from the outside world and there's a chance they might not come back so he should get his mind focused "Look I may be younger than you guys but don't think I can't handle myself, we'll keep a low profile, scope the place out and then we'll come back, in and out, simple," he'd say before Aiden would walk off "Alright so if that's it I'm gonna head off as well, talk later," he'd say with a quick wave as he'd exit the warehouse
G was very visibly mad when James decided to listen in to a private conversation between him and Snowy. The look on G's face to James sent the boy a non verbal message of Out. Or I kill you.
Once EVERYONE left. G turned to Snowy "You know what. Feel free to freeze his balls off for listening onto us. Now onto the real subject. Hmm... so you say that Thunder has a blood relative who's in UA? Hmm... Well... you need to tell me about the situation. Does she want to get away from him? Whats her relation to Thunder? Are they on friendly like terms. I feel I still need more puzzle pieces to get the bigger picture and get her away from him." G said as he needed more information. Like, what if this was some evil Thunder kid who was evil and wanted to spy on UA. Because if that was the case then he'd have to get her away from UA not Thunder. How much of a good guy was this UA kiddo. He sighed and hoped she was worth this trouble and hassle for Snowy, because this seems the first time the ice boy had some emotion
Post by Hideki Igarashi on Dec 13, 2019 23:03:36 GMT -4
The death glare that Hideki shot towards James would have pierced him with ice if it could. Who the hell was he to linger long enough to listen it? It was difficult enough to show 1 commoner weakness by admitting this... now he had some dumb ass redhead listening in on him too. He very nearly fired off a snow squall but G was the first to speak up and he immediately calmed down enough to not outright attack someone he needed to work for him.
Once everyone was gone he let out a sigh, turning his phone on once more and handing it over to G. The background image was a sloppily shot selfy of himself and Miku during their date at the mall. This would at least give G a visual of who he was talking about.
"She goes by Miku Hajimari. She's a sweet girl I met some time ago. She's not evil by any means, but she's just in way over her head. Turns out her mother was someone Thundershock actually cared about so he's gotten really attached to her, and it looks like she's gotten pretty attached to him. I'm not privy to all the details, but she's been spending more and more time with him. As far as I know she hasn't done anything to indicate she's doing anything but spending time with her father. It sounds stupid, because there's really not that much we can do about it but I don't want her to be in the same situation as me. I don't want her to be stuck under his thumb when she doesn't want to be. If she doesn't want to be" Truthfully Hideki was being selfish... HE wanted nothing to do with Thundershock and the Kobayashi clan, however he cared about Miku, a lot. If he cared for Miku when she was loyal to Thunder then, he never would get away from him and his influence? He needed to find a way to sever that connection the two had so he never had to worry about it again.
Snowy took his phone and handed it to G, there he was Snowy's wallpaper which was a selfie of himself and MIKU. As Snowy continued to speak, G's jaw just slowly dropped more and more as he spoke, listening that Miku was associating herself with Thundershock of all people and SHES ATTACHED TO HIM!?!? Ok now G's blood was boiling, he took his own phone once Snowy stopped speaking and called for Miku, he also put it on speaker so Snowy can hear it "Hey dad, whats up" Miku's voice could be heard, oblivious to whats coming to her "You are in SO MUCHTROUBLE!!!!!!" he angrilly yelled at his phone "Wha, what?!? WHAT DID I DO!!!" "YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU DID!!! NOW GET YOUR ASS HERE PRONTO!!!!" "I...umm.. WHERE ARE YOU!??!" "IM AT THE HIDEOUT!!!!" "WELL WHERE IS THAT!??!?" "WELL FIND IT!!!" G then used Snowy's phone which was still in his hand and sent Miku a text message from it saying 'You're busted. Again. And this is not even your main problem'. He then ended the call and glared at Snowy. "You. Explain yourself now. Tell me everything" he demanded and if he tried to attack, G would have no qualms attacking him with his own quirk
