You notice it.

As you fight the short guy, the moments that he's gone.


They disappear and reappear interchangeably.

You slip through the grasp of your attacker, you grab the fake tree from nearby and you hurl it at Prophet. The man in the teal hoodie has to shift out of the way to not be hit by it himself, and in that brief lapse of his concentration, all three of them appear.

Prophet, the man in the hoodie, and the muscular man.

Prophet narrowly avoids the tree, but is visibly shaken by your attention to him. You start to hear him shout something, but Prophet--and his words--fade from existence once the man in the teal hood is back on stable footing.

"He's lying to us," Red says. She sounds... angry. Angrier than you knew she was capable of, to be honest. "They're both lying to us."

Press the attack. Go... After Mr. Teal Hood. Let's see how well he can screw with you with a scalpel in his throat. Give in to your human rage. They took a dear friend from you. You will end this. All this killing. All this pain. You will work to end this, for Michelle. But for now.

Okay, you know what? I feel like we should just kick both their asses on principle. Like, regular illusions are bad enough as it is, but once you start layering them, you're just getting /really/ obnoxious.

Just grab the dude and the teal hood and use him to bludgeon Prophet. It's probably ridiculous enough to work.

They're all mutants with annoying powers. Great.

Teal hoodie is somehow hiding Prophet. Guess we better deal with him first.

Red is extremely mad so I don't know if we're going to stretch thin against our will or not. Not sure how we're going to deal with this *without* losing it.

I suppose if we have the mind to, we could just bloody syringe the lot.

EDIT: I forgot we were syncing Caius, whoops. Well, let's summon our inner-wrestler and go for it. Akasha has a fun idea. :P

We need to be as sure of what we can perceive as possible-- Engineering, send full power to Scouting, get those scanners running as hard as possible! And Gunner, phasers set to kill! Power down Warp and full power to Maneuverability!

...Right, erm, I mean, let's focus all our blood-resources on sensing through the illusions, not bother with expending any energy to try non-lethal solutions, and sync as much maneuverability and combat ability as we can.

Ask Red: is there anything she can do to help us fight? Is there a way to *partially* stretch thin? Because we're kinda surrounded and having our brain fucked with and we need all the help we can get right now-- and as much power as possible.

Teal is illusion. The big guy's fake. The Prophet's hidden.

Prophet is fear. Prophet is Fear.

...Michelle isn't dead. The Prophet preys on our fears. See through his lies and fight, not for the sake of fighting, but for the sake of saving Michelle.
He'll pay... But he doesn't have to now.
"He's lying to us."
He can even affect the Red. So we need to affect him back... Fire a syringe of blood at where the Prophet is/isn't.

we have no fear, now.

only anger.

only rage.

Time for enough adrenaline that illusion fades, limits fade, and Red Rises as they fall. Not in a blind rage, but Cold. Calculated. Ice.

i vote we syringe prophet before we kill him.

take away what he cares about most.

show him how it feels.
