Alex: I asked around by the way, about the Black Mambas. There is a small faction in this town. They've been spreading all over the world.
Lucas looks over at Alex and Zane.
"Not your worries, back to your posts" Lucas gets into a military car with several lieutenant and drives off.Edited on 07/01/2011 9:47pm

Zane: *to Alex* Ah, that's probably what I'm supposed to be looking into up north. There's some ruckus up there causing problems. I just hope I don't need to go near Briggs.
Grey runs to the end of the alley, he peeks over the corner and sees it's clear of Military and gets on the sidewalk and throws the hood of his coat over his head.
"Grey, this is getting dangerous. Are you sure this is what you want?" She said, following him. Her blue eyes big and beautiful with flowing blonde hair.
"There's more than one. But how many?" Grey seemed to ignore her.
"Grey, I worry about you"
"Gluttony? More than one?" Grey stops, His eyes widen. "Is it possible? No...It can't be...It just can't be"
Gluttony approached Sloth and one of Pride's clones. As they waited for him, Gluttony smiled, taking the glasses off and throwing them aside, cracking once they hit the floor.
"Went perfectly as planned. Grey is the perfect candidate"
Sloth: That's good then.
Pride clone: Yes, it is. Well then, we have assessed his power. Our agents are now in this town. Yep, our job here is done. Come on, let's get a move on, what do you say?
Zane boards the train and heads up north
Zane: What was that thing? Well, hopefully nothing too creepy up north.
Wrath: Keepin' an eye out for trouble seems a bit boring. But I suppose it must be done.
She continues to roof hop.
- Suddenly the sky starts to become grey, Grey looks up and sees the clouds hang over as it begins to rain. "It all makes sense now, i need to get to a Central Library. They must have some kind of files on Gluttony"
Zane gets off the train and hails a taxi
Zane: Take me to city hall. I suppose I could get some info there.
He rides off and continues to observe his surroundings. Meanwhile, a group of men are seen talking with each other.
Man1: So another raid?
Man2: Hmph yeah. They just restocked. It's the perfect time to hit them up.
Man3: This'll show 'em to fear us.
Man4: Let's go.
Suddenly a gun is pressed against Grey's back.
"Move and i won't be afraid to pull the trigger" The girls voice said.
"Who are you?"
"Spend less time worrying who i am and worrying about yourself. 'He' sent me, that's all i'm aloud to say"
"He?" Grey questions.
"The man i work for. He wants to help you with your mission but he asks you to do something for him first. He'd be happy to pay you if money is an opinion" She said.
"I'm no bounty hunter. I don't do 'jobs' for anyone"
"He asks you to find Alex Maiz and Zane Stones. Than i'll return with your next mission"
"No. I'm not partnering up with anyone. You find them and find me when you do cause honestly you won't shoot me" Grey walks off when a gunshot goes off, Grey stops walking and turns around toward the girl who hid her face.
"Do it or the next one is in you. He will find someone else to stop them. Do you accept?" Grey stared at her, not happy.
"Yes" Soon as Grey blinked, she was gone. He looked around then just walked off.Edited on 07/02/2011 11:05pm
Zane pulls up to City Hall. He pays the driver and starts to walk in when he sees a group of men gathering behind a truck.
Zane: Guess I don't need to pay a visit to the mayor after all.
He walks over
Zane: Hey guys, so what are you up to?
Man1: Th-that uniform?!
Man2: He's with the military!
Man3: Get 'em!
Zane: I really wish it didn't have to come to this. But since you insist.
He claps his hand together and creates four stone walls that surround the group
Man3: A State Alchemist?!
Zane: Got that right.
He flashes his pocket watch and hops off. He claps his hand together again and creates a barred ceiling on top of his stone prison.
Zane: Well that takes care of that. I'll alert the local authorities and be back. Wasn't too much trouble.
Man1: You may have stopped us, but you can't stop the Black Mamba.
Zane: Black Mamba you say?
In a dark room, the real Pride is sitting in a chair. He closes his eyes for a minute. He recalls waking up in a pool of blood. He looks around
???: Are you alive?
Pride: Y....Yes. Who....Am I?
???: You are Pride. My son.
Pride: Pride. Who....are you?
???: I have been called many things. You may call me....Father.
???: Pride, I have some work for you to do. But first, I will give you one other gift.
Pride: A gift?
???: Yes. 6 siblings. 3 brothers and 3 sisters.
Pride looks up and sees many dark tentacles. Pride clenches his fist
???: Yo boss man!
Pride: ....Envy. Shouldn't you be on your mission?
Age: 44, but looks barely 25.
Power: Envy can seperate a piece of her life force into someone else to drain them of their life force or read their thoughts and memories.
Personality and Backstory: Envy is the youngest of the Homunculi. She is very carefree and takes nothing seriously. She is the only thing that matters in her world and hates everyone else.
Zane is talking with the local police.
Zane: Alright officers. Just keep 'em here for now. The folks at Central may invoke some questioning later. The Black Mamba problem has been spreading and we'd like any info that we could find. And that's all. See ya later.
He walks off toward the train.
Alex has beaten all the thugs. He breathes deeply when he flinches and a rocket flies at him. He leaps out of the way. He sees kid a touch a car and it converts into a missle. It fires at him as Alex claps his hand and creates a shockwave that recoils it into the air and blows it up.
Alex: So, it's true. The Black Mambas can perform alchmey.....using Philosopher's Stones.
Gang member: You're right. Too bad you are. That's why you gotta die.
Alex: Sorry. I'm not in a dying mood.
