The Nomad saga is the first segment of Dragon Ball: The Mrovian Series.
Chapter 1: The Son of DogomEdit
<THE SCENE OPENS WITH THE CAMERA ZOOMED VERY CLOSE TO THE GROUND OF DIRT AND SAND; A SINGLE DROP OF WHAT APPEARS TO BE WATER HITS THE GROUND; THE CAMERA THEN CUTS TO THE FACE OF A BOY WITH SHORT BLACK HAIR FROM BELOW, SWEATING AND SOMEWHAT BRUISED; THE CAMERA THEN CUTS TO THE BOY’S ENTIRE BODY; HE IS ON HIS KNEES, BENDING FORWARD, WITH HIS HANDS ON THE GROUND AND ARMS SUPPORTING HIS TORSO; HE IS WEARING ARMOR OF THE PLANET TRADE ORGANIZATION, WHITE TRIMMED WITH GOLD, AND HAS THE TAIL OF A SAIYAN>
Girl (UNSEEN): Is that all?
<THE BOY DOES NOT RESPOND AND CONTINUES TO STARE AT THE GROUND FOR A FEW MORE SECONDS; HE THEN LOOKS UP TO SEE THE GIRL WALKING TOWARDS HIM; SHE IS ALSO A SAIYAN WEARING ARMOR, DARK BLUE TRIMMED WITH GOLD; BEHIND HER IS AN OUTDOOR DESERT-LIKE LANDSCAPE; THE BOY THEN GETS UP ON ONE KNEE AND THEN LUNGES AT THE GIRL WITH A FLYING SIDE KICK; THE GIRL SIDESTEPS THE ATTACK AND THROWS A PUNCH; THE BOY NARROWLY DUCKS THE PUNCH AS HE TURNS AROUND TO FACE HIS OPPONENT; BOTH THEN PROCEED TO DANCE AROUND EACH OTHER, REPEATEDLY THROWING AND EVADING STRIKES>
<EVENTUALLY, THE BOY SUCCESSFULLY LANDS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE GIRL’S WAIST, ALTHOUGH THE ATTACK DOES NOT FAZE THE GIRL MUCH; AFTER A FEW MORE EXCHANGES, THE GIRL LANDS A HOOK ACROSS THE BOY’S FACE, AND THEN FOLLOWS UP WITH A KNEE TO HIS ABDOMEN, CAUSING HIM TO BUCKLE OVER; WITH HER OPPONENT ON THE GROUND, THE GIRL THEN RAISES A PALM AT HIM>
Woman: Chaiva, wait!
<JUST AS THE BOY LOOKS UP, CHAIVA UNLEASHES A POINT-BLANK BLUE KI BLAST THAT ENGULFS HIS ENTIRE BODY; WHEN THE SMOKE CLEARS, THE BOY IS SEVERAL TENS OF METERS AWAY, ON HIS BACK INSIDE THE VALLEY CHAIVA HAD JUST CREATED; CHAIVA THEN TURNS TO LOOK AT THE ADULT FEMALE SAIYAN WHO WAS SUPERVISING THE SPARRING MATCH; SHE IS NONE OTHER THAN OCRA FROM DRAGON BALL: THE GREAT WAR>
Ocra: That was not necessary!
Chaiva: Why not?
Ocra: It’s one thing to defeat your opponent in sparring, but it’s another to humiliate him.
Chaiva: I don’t see your point. It was Cuber who challenged me in the first place. He deserved his defeat.
<OCRA SIGHS BEFORE SHE AND CHAIVA FLY TO CUBER, WHO SITS UP AND DUSTS HIMSELF OFF>
Ocra: Good. We need to talk.
Chaiva: About what?
Ocra: As you already know, it is time for you two to begin your service to Lord Frieza. Your first mission is in seven days, and you will have other children joining you. As the strongest member of this new team, I expect you to lead them to victory, Chaiva.
Chaiva: I can handle myself, mother. <LOOKS AT CUBER> I don’t need anyone dragging me down.
Ocra: Enough! You have grown strong and your enemies will be weaker than you, but they are not to be underestimated. If you cannot get along, let alone trust each other, you will not survive out there. Understand?
Cuber: <WITH UNCERTAINTY> Yes.
Chaiva: <EYEROLL> Fine.
Ocra: You will be given details of your mission when the time comes. I will now take my leave; I am needed elsewhere. Use these next several days to prepare yourselves.
Chaiva: Understood, mother.
<OCRA TAKES OFF>
Chaiva: <LOOKS AT CUBER> Pathetic – a super-elite and utterly useless.
Cuber: <ANGRILY> I’m better than most of the other kids!
Chaiva: But you still lost to me and always have. No matter how many times you challenge me, I will always win.
Cuber: <MUTTERING UNDER HIS BREATH> We’ll see about that.
<CUTS TO NIGHTTIME, INSIDE A PLANET TRADE ORGANIZATION BUILDING; CUBER IS ALONE IN THE DARKNESS AND WALKS UP TO SOME CONTROLS; WHEN HE ACTIVATES THE CONTROLS, A ONE-WAY MIRROR LIGHTS UP IN FRONT OF HIM; HE THEN WALKS AWAY FROM THE CONTROLS AND ENTERS THE ROOM OF THE ONE-WAY MIRROR; IT IS CLEAR THAT THE ROOM IS FOR TRAINING AND CUBER SET IT TO HAVE GREATER THAN PLANET VEGETA’S GRAVITY; CUBER THROWS MANY PUNCHES, KICKS, AND ENERGY BLASTS INTO THE AIR, AND STRUGGLES INTENSELY TO DO SO; CUBER EVENTUALLY COLLAPSES FROM EXHAUSTION AND IS UNABLE TO GET UP; HOWEVER, WITHIN A FEW MINUTES, THE EXTRA GRAVITY IS LIFTED AND THE DOOR TO THE ROOM OPENS>
Ocra: I’m glad you’re taking your mission very seriously. You’re the only kid who’s using the gravity room without supervision.
Cuber: <WEAKLY> It’s because I’m still too weak. No matter how much I try, I’m always behind.
Ocra: If this is about Chaiva, she’s older than you. Of course you can’t beat her yet.
Cuber: But I’m the son of Dogom! And I’m already stronger than some adults!
Ocra: That is true, which is why you’ll eventually as strong as Chaiva if not stronger. When your father returns, I will make sure he knows how much you’re improving. For now, get some rest. If you need to use the gravity room again, go right ahead.
<THE SCENE THEN SWITCHES TO THE DAY OF THE MISSION; OCRA IS SEEN STANDING BEFORE CHAIVA, CUBER, AND FIVE OTHER SAIYAN CHILDREN, ALL OF WHOM ARE ABOUT THE SAME AGE AS THE OTHER TWO; UNLIKE IN THE FIRST SCENE, EACH SAIYAN IS WEARING A SCOUTER>
Ocra: Listen up! Today will be your first chance to show off what you can do. The planet we are about to invade has an intelligent species that has united under its own government. Your mission is to force the enemy to surrender. Once they yield, let me know. I will handle the rest. Are you ready?
All Saiyan Children: Yes ma’am!
Ocra: Good. Chaiva, remember what I told you.
Chaiva: Yes, mother.
<THE SAIYANS EACH ENTER HIS/HER RESPECTIVE SPACE POD, WHICH THEN TAKE OFF INTO SPACE>
<THE SCENE CUTS TO THE PODS APPROACHING THE TARGET PLANET; THE PODS SOON ENTER THE ATMOSPHERE, GLOWING WITH THE HEAT OF INTENSE FRICTION; THE CAMERA THEN CUTS TO THE SURFACE, SHOWING THE NATIVE MILITARY, CONSISTING OF INFANTRY ARMED WITH ALIEN RIFLES ACCOMPANIED BY TANKS, MOBILIZING; THE SAIYAN PODS THEN IMPACT THE SURFACE, ONE AT A TIME, SURROUNDED BY THE PREPARED NATIVES; THE PODS OPEN IN THE ORDER THEY LANDED IN AND EACH SAIYAN STEPS OUT; THE NATIVES HOLD THEIR FIRE, UNSURE OF WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE INTRUDERS>
Ocra: Your mission starts now.
<THE SAIYAN CHILDREN IMMEDIATELY FIRE OFF ENERGY WAVE VOLLEYS, INSTANTLY VAPORIZING ANY INFANTRY THEY STRIKE, WHILE SEVERELY DAMAGING IF NOT OUTRIGHT DESTROYING ANY TANKS CAUGHT IN THE BARRAGES; WHAT FEW SURVIVING FORCES FIRE UPON THE SAIYANS FOR THE FEW SECONDS THEY REMAIN STANDING, UNTIL THEY TOO ARE ELIMINATED; CHAIVA SMIRKS WHILE THE REST OF THE CHILDREN CHEER AT THEIR FIRST VICTORY>
Ocra: Well done. Now use your scouters to find the capital. It will have the most readings.
<EACH SAIYAN CHILD TAPS HIS/HER SCOUTER UNTIL ONE BEEPS FIRST>
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 1: <POINTS> Over there! About 500 kilometers away!
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 2: Then let’s go!
<ALL BUT CUBER AND OCRA TAKE OFF>
Cuber: Are you coming with us?
Ocra: This mission is for you, so I will not be. Good luck out there, Cuber.
<THE SCENE CUTS TO THE CHILDREN FLYING TOWARDS THEIR DESTINATION>
<THE OTHER CHILDREN TURN TO LOOK AT CHAIVA BEFORE HEEDING HER COMMAND>
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 2: What?
Chaiva: Before we keep going, let me make one thing clear. When we reach the capital, you can do whatever you want. Just stay out of my way.
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 3: What’s that supposed to mean?
Chaiva: You heard me. The rest of you will only slow me down if you interfere. You got a problem?
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 3: I do! You can’t just hog everything to yourself.
Other Saiyan Children: <NODDING IN AGREEMENT> Yeah!
Chaiva: I said you can do what you want, as long as you keep your distance.
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 3: You might be the leader, but that doesn’t mean you can just boss us around.
Chaiva: If you want to challenge me, by all means, bring it on.
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 2: We can all take her.
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 1: I don’t think that’s a good idea. She’s a lot stronger than us.
Cuber: Stop! Whether or not you like it, Chaiva is still our leader. We still have to obey her commands. Besides, we’re supposed to be fighting aliens, not each other.
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 3: So you’re defending her now?
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 4: He’s right. Let her do what she wants. We’re here for the mission anyway.
<THE OTHER SAIYAN CHILDREN MUTTER TO EACH OTHER>
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 3: <GRUDGINGLY> Fine.
Chaiva: We’ve waste enough time here already. <TAKES OFF>
<THE REST OF THE SAIYANS FOLLOW CHAIVA BACK TO THEIR ROUTE; CHAIVA ONCE AGAIN SMIRKS, CONFIDENT THAT SHE WILL COMPLETE THE MISSION NEAR-SINGLEHANDEDLY>
Chapter 2: What Could Go Wrong?Edit
<THE SAIYANS ARE STILL AIRBORNE TOWARDS THEIR DESTINATION; AS THEY CONTINUE, SEVERAL MISSILES APPROACH THEM HEAD-ON>
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 1: Here they come!
<THE CHILDREN FIRE ENERGY BLASTS AT THE INCOMING MISSILES, SHOOTING EACH ONE OUT OF THE SKY BEFORE THEY CAN REACH THEIR TARGETS; WHEN ALL PROJECTILES HAVE CLEARED, THE SAIYANS CONTINUE TO FLY FORWARD>
Cuber: The real enemies are up ahead. You guys see them on your scouters right?
Unnamed Saiyans: <TOGETHER> Yeah.
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 5: Now they’re really coming.
<MINUTES LATER, A FLEET OF NATIVE INTERCEPTORS COME TO VIEW; THE AIRCRAFT SHOOT AT THE SAIYANS WITH RAPID-FIRE CANNONS, BUT THE SAIYANS ARE FAR TOO SMALL, AGILE, AND POWERFUL; MOST PROJECTILES MISS ENTIRELY, AND THOSE THAT DO HIT DO NOT BOTHER THE SAIYANS MUCH; THE SAIYANS MAKE SHORT WORK OF THE FLEET, SOME USING ENERGY BLASTS, AND OTHERS BECOMING MUCH MORE PHYSICAL>
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 3: Hah! This is too easy!
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 2: Yeah, these guys are weak!
<OTHER UNNAMED SAIYANS NOD IN AGREEMENT; SOON, ONLY A FEW ALIEN FIGHTERS REMAIN AND RETREAT; HOWEVER, THEY FLY IN A PERPENDICULAR DIRECTION RELATIVE TO THE SAIYANS’ INTENDED DESTINATION; OVERZELOUS IN FINISHING OFF THEIR ENEMIES, THREE OF THE UNNAMED SAIYAN CHILDREN FLY AFTER THE AIRCRAFT>
Cuber: Wait! The capital is this way!
<THE THREE SAIYANS DO NOT HEAR CUBER AND CONTINUE TO CHASE THE JETS>
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 1: Hey! Come back!
<THE PURSUERS ARE NOW BARELY IN SIGHT; CUBER PREPARES TO CLICK HIS SCOUTER TO COMMUNICATE WITH THEM>
Chaiva: Let them go. Those fools will just miss the real fun.
Cuber: We might need their help when we get to the capital.
Chaiva: As if. Do what you want. I don’t care what.
<CHAIVA FLIES OFF TOWARDS THE CAPITAL; CUBER SIGHS BEFORE HE AND THE LAST TWO OTHER SAIYANS FOLLOW>
<IN SEVERAL MINUTES, SEVERAL SPACE SHIPS OF IMMENSE SIZE APPEAR IN THE DISTANCE AND TURN TO FACE THE SAIYANS; UNFAZED, CHAIVA CONTINUES FORWARD AND WITH THE OTHER THREE SAIYANS STILL BEHIND HER; SOON, THE CITY APPEARS IN THE HORIZON; COMPLETELY IGNORING THE NATIVES’ FLEET OF FLYING VESSELS ABOVE THE CAPITAL, CHAIVA SMIRKS AND RAISES HER RIGHT PALM, INTENDING TO LEVEL THE CITY IN A SINGLE MASSIVE KI BLAST>
<BEFORE CHAIVA CAN FIRE HER ATTACK, A BLUE-WHITE STREAK COMES FROM ONE OF THE SHIPS AND STRIKES ONE OF THE TWO UNNAMED SAIYANS; THE RAW KINETIC IMPACT YIELDS A LARGE EXPLOSION; CAUGHT OFF-GUARD, ALL OF THE OTHER SAIYANS ARE THROWN FROM THEIR ORIGINAL POSITIONS, INCLUDING CHAIVA, WHO HAD LOST HER FOCUS; THE SAIYAN BOY WHO WAS STRUCK FALLS FROM THE SKY WITHOUT HIS SCOUTER, HIS ARMOR CRACKED, UNCONSCIOUS>
Chaiva: <IN DISBELIEF> Impossible…
Unnamed Saiyan Boy 5: What happened?
Cuber: Watch out!
<ANOTHER SHIP FIRES ITS CANNON, DROPPING THE OTHER UNNAMED SAIYAN; AWARE THAT THEY ARE VULNERABLE TO THEIR ENEMIES’ MOST POWERFUL WEAPONRY, CHAIVA AND CUBER NARROWLY EVADE THE REMAINING SHOTS BY FLYING IN ERRATIC PATTERNS>
Cuber: This is not good.
Chaiva: Shut up and fight back!
<AS THE SAIYANS CONTINUE TO DODGE, THEY FIRE ENERGY BEAMS AT THE AERIAL VESSELS, EACH BLAST TAKING OUT A SHIP; A FEW SECONDS LATER, INTERCEPTORS APPROACH THE SAIYANS AND FIRE THEIR MISSILES; NEITHER CUBER NOR CHAIVA BOTHER EVADING THE MISSILES AS THE MISSILES DO NOT HARM THEM; HOWEVER, THE PROJECTILES’ EXPLOSIONS SERVE TO DISRUPT THE SAIYANS’ VISION, MAKING IT MORE DIFFICULT TO BOTH ACCURATELY ELIMINATE THE WARSHIPS WITH KI ATTACKS AND DODGE THE SHIPS’ PRIMARY GUNS>
Chaiva: This is seriously getting annoying.
<THE NATIVES’ STRATEGY PROMPTS CUBER AND CHAIVA TO CLOSE IN ON THE SHIPS TO TAKE MORE ACCURATE SHOTS; EVENTUALLY, ALL BUT TWO SHIPS REMAIN; CHAIVA CHARGES AN ENERGY BLAST IN BOTH PALMS, THIS ONE IN THE FORM OF A GREEN-AND-PINK SPHERE, AND THEN THROWS HER ATTACK TOWARDS THE NEAREST SHIP; JUST AS SHE DOES THIS, CUBER EVADES A SHOT FROM THE OTHER VESSEL AND FLIES STRAIGHT INTO CHAIVA’S ENERGY SPHERE; WHEN THE SMOKE CLEARS AFTER A BLINDING EXPLOSION, CUBER FALLS, JUST LIKE THE OTHER TWO SAIYANS BEFORE, BUT THIS TIME DUE TO FRIENDLY FIRE>
Chaiva: <SLOWING DOWN IN MIDAIR AS SHE WATCHES THAT HAPPEN; SHOUTING> You idiot!
<IMMEDIATELY AFTER THIS, THE ONLY REMAINING SHIP FIRES ITS CANNON, SCORING A DIRECT HIT ON CHAIVA; THE FEMALE SAIYAN, WHO IS STRONGER THAN HER COMRADES, REMAINS IN FLIGHT LONG ENOUGH TO FIRE AN ENERGY WAVE IN RETALIATION, DESTROYING THE SHIP THAT STRUCK HER; HOWEVER, HER ARMOR IS CHIPPED AND CRACKED, AND SHE IS BLEEDING FROM MULTIPLE WOUNDS ACROSS HER BODY; AS CHAIVA LOSES CONSCIOUSNESS AND BEGINS TO FALL, SHE SEES HER MOTHER FLY OVERHEAD TOWARDS THE CITY>
<CUTS TO FRIEZA’S SHIP>
Gichamu: <CACKLING> They cleared it in a single day, I heard. Impressive for space monkeys, isn’t it?
<THE CAMERA PANS BACK, REVEALING A DARK ROOM WITH VARIOUS COMPUTER MONITORS LINING THE WALLS; BOTH ZARBON AND GICHAMU ARE SITTING AT CHAIRS IN FRONT OF THIS DISPLAY>
Zarbon: There are few things uglier than a Saiyan’s arrogance. <SNARLING> Fine then. <HE LEANS FORWARD, CLICKING AWAY AT HIS KEYBOARD; ON THE SCREEN DIRECTLY ABOVE HIM, CHAIVA’S TEAM NAME APPEAR NEXT TO POOL OF AVAILABLE PLANETS; WITHOUT HESITATING, ZARBON ASSIGNS THE TEAM TO THE MOST THREATENING PLANET CURRENTLY AVAILABLE>They aren’t as bad as that rotten little prince… but they deserve no less.
Gichamu: <POURING HIMSELF A GLASS OF ICE WINE> It sounds to me like you’re jealous.
Zarbon: Hmph. The Saiyans are a race of pirates and savages. They are only barbarians. They have only one use for Lord Frieza’s empire.
Gichamu: Heh, you think that’s different from yours?
Zarbon: <IGNORING GICHAMU, HE CLICKS A BUTTON ON HIS SCOUTER> Buto, are you there?
<THE CAMERA CUTS TO AN ALIEN WORLD>
Buto: <ARROGANTLY> What is it?
<THE CAMERA PANS AROUND, SHOWING A DEVASTATED WORLD; BUTO STANDS IN THE CENTER OF A BURNING CITY; IN THE FOREGROUND, A CYREN WARRIOR IN PLANET TRADE ORGANIZATION VICIOUSLY TEARS APART A ONE-EYED, PINK-FACED PRIMATE-LOOKING ALIEN WITH LONG WHITE FUR AND LARGE MUSCLES; MORE OF THIS SPECIES ARE BEING ATTACKED BY ANOTHER SOLDIER WITH FOUR WINGS, A SLENDER FRAME, AND BUGGY EYES; BUTO WATCHES ALL OF THIS WITH SATISFACTION>
Zarbon: <FROM OVER THE SCOUTER> Have you conquered Ghoublo yet?
<AS SEVERAL NATIVES RUN BY, BUTO FEROCIOUSLY LEAPS UPON ONE, SUBDUING IT WITH HIS FEET AND CUTTING OPEN ITS NECK WITH A SUDDEN EXPLOSION OF KI>
Buto: <HAUGHTILY> It is nearly done. Why?
Zarbon: I’ve had a change of plans. After you have completed your mission, return to the ship at once.
Buto: <ANGRILY> Why?!
Zarbon: Do not question me, Captain. <HIS TONE DEEPENS> Do you understand my order?
Buto: Yes. You want us to ignore Tenrin, and–
Zarbon: <INTERRUPTING HIM> That uncivilized runt will be dealt with. But my team is not required to see his end. Do you understand me, Captain Buto?
Buto: <GRUMBLING> Yes. If we do not get compensation for this, there will be hell to pay.
<THE COMMUNICATION ENDS ABRUPTLY; GRITTING HIS TEETH, BUTO LAUNCHES HIMSELF INTO THE AIR; HE THEN PROCEEDS TO DECIMATE WHAT REMAINS OF THE CITY WITH A STORM OF KI BLASTS; THE CITY GOES UP IN FLAMES AS THE CAMERA FADES TO BLACK>
<CUTS TO PLANET VEGETA>
<CUBER AND CHAIVA CAN BE SEEN IN TWO REJUVENATION TANKS INSIDE A ROOM WITH SEVERAL ALIENS OF MALAKA’S SPECIES; BOTH ARE UNCONSCIOUS; OCRA IS STANDING OFF TO THE SIDE WITH ANOTHER FEMALE SAIYAN ADULT; THEY ARE TALKING INDISTINCTLY AS THE UNNAMED WOMAN PUTS ON HER PURPLE AND BLACK ARMOR, EVIDENTLY JUST HAVING COME OUT OF ONE OF THE REJUVENATION TANKS HERSELF, AS HER HAIR IS SLICKED BLACK FROM BEING WET; AS SHE EXITS, ONE OF THE BROWN-SKINNED, WRINKLY-BEAKED ALIENS STEPS FORWARD, RELEASING BOTH CUBER AND CHAIVA FROM THEIR REJUVENATION TANKS>
<AS THE LIQUID DRAINS FROM EACH POD AND THE TWO CHILDEN SLOWLY START TO WAKE, OCRA APPROACHES THEM WITH HER ARMS FOLDED>
Chaiva: Mother, I-
Ocra: <RESTRAINED> Quiet, Chaiva. <SHE LOOKS DOWN UPON THEM WITH DISAPPOINTMENT AS THEY STEP OUT OF THE TANKS>You didn’t listen to me.
Chaiva: But… he flew right into my Aurora Bomb, like an idiot! It’s his fault!
Cuber: Well maybe if you hadn’t gone off on your own and came up with a strategy like a real leader-
Ocra: Stop bickering, both of you. What’s done is done. You were lucky I was there to save you. If I hadn’t been, you two would have gotten yourselves killed by far weaker foes. Your teamwork is pathetic. That’s going to change, if either of you wants to go on another mission for Lord Frieza.
Chaiva: Whatever, I didn’t do anything wrong. <SHE SCOWLS DARKLY AT CUBER> It was all his fault.
Ocra: That’s enough. Both of you let your guard down and both of you failed on your mission. If you had only used a little teamwork… <SHE SHOOK HER HEAD> Well, follow me.
Ocra: To your next mission.
<OCRA LEADS THE TWO AWAY AS THEY CONTINUE TO GRUMBLE AT ONE ANOTHER; THEY LEAVE THE MEDICAL BAY AND ENTER A SPARRING CHAMBER MANNED BY A SINGLE BLUE-SKINNED ALIEN OF APPULE’S SPECIES; AT OCRA’S COMMAND, HE OPENS SEVERAL DOORS INTO THE INNER SPARRING CHAMBER VIA HIS COMPUTER CONSOLE; A GROUP OF THREE SAIBAMEN LEAP FROM BEHIND THOSE DOORS OUT ONTO THE STAGE GRUNTING AND BRANDISHING THEIR CLAWS>
Ocra: Get in there, both of you. <SHE GESTURES, AND THE GUARD OPENS THEIR DOOR INTO THE SPARRING ROOM> These Saibamen have been on a few missions themselves. They are not the usual target practice you would expect. Chaiva, you must work with Cuber to defeat them. You cannot do it alone.
Chaiva: <LOOKING INTO THE ROOM WITH DETERMINATION>A weakling like him will just slow me down. <SHE ARROGANTLY TURNS TO CUBER, LOOKING HIM UP AND DOWN> Maybe you could be a meatshield… but that’s all you’re good for.
Cuber: Oh yeah?! <HE BEGINS TO LUNGE AT HER, BUT OCRA PULLS HIM BACK>
Ocra: Stop it now! Stop your fighting! <WITHOUT SO MUCH AS THE SLIGHTEST HINT OF SYMPATHY, SHE GRABS THEM BOTH BY THE COLLAR-GUARDS OF THEIR ARMOR, PICKS EACH ONE OF THEM UP, AND LIGHTLY THROWS THEM INSIDE; THE DOOR INSTANTLY SHUTS, LEAVING THEM ALONE IN THE ROOM WITH THE SAIBAMEN> Now show me what you can do when you work together.
Chaiva: <LOOKS AWAY> Hmph. <WHISPERING SO ONLY CUBER CAN HEAR HER> Loser.
Cuber: <FROWNING; EYEING THE SAIBAMEN, WHO ARE CACKLING AND SLOWLY APPROACHING> Seriously, we should just-
Chaiva: Save it.
<SHE TURNED FROM HIM AND ENGULFED THE ROOM IN LIGHT AND ENERGY>
