    Sassy AI II: Electric Boogaloo.

    Judge Fear wasn't about to interfere with the ongoing argument between vehicle and ghost-creature; he was far too occupied applying pressure this sinner's thro - crrk! Ah, never mind that. All signs of life faded from the Dark Judge's vision and he removed his foot, the once-rebellious mage left to enjoy his precious few seconds of life before ultimately carrying over. "Aptly said, K.A.R.R., aptly said," the ghoul hissed approvingly. Now then, a new question presented itself to the group: how to dispose of the body? K.A.R.R. thought to either throw the mage's corpse into the fire or into the back of his boot; the latter was more preferable. "We dispense of the female and exchange her flesh for this one," Judge Fear decided. After all, one never knew when they needed a fresh vessel to replace the current one they already inhabited. And as for Zs'Skayr's budding enthusiasm...

    "It was sloppy," the Dark Judge had to ultimately state. Without a doubt it had been fun and the ghoul did enjoy a good challenge, but this had been quite close. And, given their collective weakness as a whole due to Portal Breach's confounded principles, Judge Fear wanted to avoid too much of a commotion while he was so very weak. "You did adequate work bringing me the rest of these iniquitous souls, but no more of these questionable variants." Not until they were ready, that was. And don't think you're free from this yet, K.A.R.R.

    He turned to his ally and went on to add, "And no more missiles being fired into buildings. If we were to destroy a fully attended church or auditorium filled with persons, that is acceptable. But not when we are in the thick of an on-going session." Alibi or not, it was dreadfully hard to ignore the sound of an exploding rocket.

    Zs'Skayr wrote:"I'll have to find a far more secluded and harder to enter and escape area next time. What say you, Judge?"

    That was indeed favourable, but where would one find such a place?

    "If you believe yourself capable of handling those outside city limits, then do as you will," the Dark Judge answered. It was fairly dangerous out there, just ask the handful of skeleton militia men and ascended death cultists, so the ghost-creature was going to have his claws full. "We will discuss a suitable meeting area to convene upon, but not here. Quickly, assist me in throwing the woman's body into the fire and placing this one into K.A.R.R.'s boot. It will not take long for the local fire department to arrive." And any unwanted prying eyes.

    An explanation was about to given to KARR due to its question, Zs'Skayr sensing as though it was trying to lure him into a word trap, but alas, he could not answer as the Judge began to speak. True, the girl was free for the time begin, but easily able to be caught. And there were no others around in the area--but this would not be of matter anymore, would it? No, now it was time for review, and his work was... adequate, at best, with slip ups. With the words sinking in, Zs'Skayr tapped his chin thoughtfully with a claw.

    "As sloppy as this work was, you'll have to understand, I am not familiar with gathering sheep and flocking them to their death. I created constructs and devices of dark intent and it was far easier to take control of people previously without the power drain," he stated--not explained--but merely stated before getting to the rest of his statement, "it will not be troublesome next time, I assure you. Though the theatrics this eve were entertaining, I understand you merely wish to end their lives quickly and thoroughly instead of having to fight to do 'your job'. Thus, I will attempt to find less hostile fools and more cowardly ones... for the time being." When he grew in power, however, he may bring you both a little surprise every so often!

    Now then, to dispose of the body and place the other in... a boot? Zs'Skayr gave him a crooked looked, confused by the word, but he would assume the Judge meant... where cargo is held. Trunk? Cars were not his forte. He wondered if his power could do the trick... he snapped his fingers after focusing on the woman--but nothing happened. A small curse escaped him under his hoarse voice, inaudible, but he moved on by grabbing the woman with ease and tossing her into the fire. As for the man... he was pretty bloodied... Not one to really want to touch him, his tail extended into a long tendril as it wrapped around the corpse and he tossed it into KARR's trunk.

    "There. I will find a more suitable and quiet location the next time I decide to bring a few sheep in for the slaughter. The outer district is fine, but it is not suitable for repeated offenses." Zs'Skayr had little else to do or say, so the decided it was time to leave. "Until then," and he disappeared.

    Though Zs'skayr's response was silence, it was one the AI felt moderately gratified with. Perhaps due to it appearing as though the ghostly figure was stumped even though he had been interrupted by the Dark Judge instead. Oh, and what was this? Apparently KARR's driver had some words about what he thought of the whole operation. Sloppy, yes! He could wholeheartedly, as the saying went, agree with the Dark Judge's statement. Both the ghoul could go without some random variables to set a house ablaze, or rip apart his interior--? KARR's thoughts silenced for a moment as the ghoul turned his gaze towards him, the glow in his helm appearing intimidating to his optics for a moment as he gave the AI a bit of talking to as well.

    Alas, the AI could not deny that his actions had been rather rash, although what could have been done to aid them that would not have taken down the house? Was the only course of action to simply sit there and wait until either the man was deceased or the house came down on them? KARR rolled the statistics around in his processor, plotting out all the possible alternative routes... Driving in through the wall? Draws too much attention. Lasers? Too high of a risk to hit Judge Fear or the ghostly creature in the crossfire, likely resulting in the same amount of scolding. His Ignition Sensors and Pilot Override? There was nary a machine in there for him to use unless he wanted to make the kitchen appliances go ballistic for a creepy but otherwise harmless effect. "...Understood." Came the AI's final, droning response, surrendering to the ghoul's statements.

    When it came time to decide what would be done with the bodies, it appeared the woman would be the one to be thrown on the pyre. With a click and a hiss the passenger side door opened along with the trunk lid, the AI observing silently as at first Zs'skayr snapped his fingers, awaiting something to happen... Apparently he wished to move the body from his seat, grumbling before taking the woman in his arms and tossing her onto the burning wreckage. Once the second body was moved to his trunk, KARR sealed himself once more, before opening the driver's side door for his partner.

    Within he would find that the interior was not as he left it, a stifling heat permeating within the interior. However, the greatest difference was the dashboard, the above paneling cracked while below were large jagged cuts from where the woman had dug her knife in deep enough to rake his circuitry. A few of his dashboard lights had gone dark from his passenger's thrashing around as well. However, KARR knew better than to appear weak before the undead Judge, even if a few of his vital readings had gone dead."It looks worse than it is. I suggest we find a provider of shrink tubing, electrical wires and plastic repair sealant for the damages." KARR stated. "They should be satisfactory for temporary repairs until we manage something more lasting."

    That is, if the ghoul did not decide to go the way of Wilton Knight and John already.
