“Sir,” Octoguard Alia approached Landro Takayaki cautiously. His office was still disheveled from the intrusion not too long ago.
“Yes?” the Octocapitalist leader of Cloud Land looked up from his paperwork with an expectant sigh.
“We have a…problem. Down by the docks.”
“What kind of problem.”
“Well. A human – she’s the captain of the other ship – she, well, she got drunk, lit a bar on fire, and flew away.”
“She does, sir. Reports have come in about her yelling about us being Octopi. She didn’t appear to notice until she got, and I quote, ‘super wasted’.”
“Do we have Butterface in custody?”
“She is being transported as we speak.”
“Then we have no time. Send…the Ninjoctopi.”
High on the rooftops of Cloud Land, a lone figure watched and waited. As well did several other lone figures. A team of lone figures gathered. All dressed in active camouflage, they identified their target: the human known only as “Captain Danielle”. Their threat assessment was being rapidly rewritten, as she was demonstrating powers she had never before: Octosense (from drinking Octoale) and flight (source unknown).
Dresmon Niles, the Ninjoctopus squad leader, signaled with all eight tentacles – and his mates scattered. He then lept from the rooftop, eight tentablades equipt, and dove right for Captain Danielle.
