[Its all peaceful on the deck of the Macross... that is... until-]


[-Skald charged across its deck to chase away birds, running this way and that before skidding to a halt before a large group of seagulls that were staring blankly at him. He merely glares back and unsheathes his claws.]

Challenge Accepted. HAVE AT YOU!!!!

[He dives right in as the birds rush at him in a wave of feathers! There's a flurry of activity and then the birds flee. Skald's fur is extremely ruffled and there is blood. But surprisingly none of it is his.]


[He coughs up a feather before hissing and spitting.]

Foul tasting avian filth-GAAAAAAH!

[And then a Pelican scooped him up. Well. Crap. Rescue the cat?]

[If you were doing anything you find Skald quickly trotting over to you, his fluff majestically moving in the wind before he bats at your leg insistenly.]

My comrade! I believe we have a situation! A mysterious intruder has managed to bypass our security! I believe it to be following me but every time I try to chase it down it always manages to get away-

[He freezes and fixates on something to the side.]


[To which he begins a frantic chase of.... his tail. The intruder Skald was worried about was his tail. After a combination of scrambling in circles and rolling around like a fluffy ball he crashes onto his back in a fluffy heap.]

W... which way did it go! We must capture it!

[...Will you humor him or tell him the truth.]

[You are doing something. Either typing, reading or in Asagi's case assembling your puzzle. However something has you look away for a moment. It doesn't really matter what it was - be it grabbing a drink or looking for more pieces. What matters is the fact Skald and his voluminous floof are curled up on your thing apparently asleep.]

[This may or may not be important. Try to move him?]


[Once more Skald is chasing down a bird. Probably not one of the Avian Empire's troops... and possibly might be Chika. Either way he runs past where the Unity Group leaves its garbage. A loud crash has him halt his pursuit and carefully pad over to the dumpster... which rattles loudly. Skald says nothing, merely looking at you and nodding as he readies his claws. When you open the dumpster however, a dirty cat that was probably white under all the stains scrambled out, crashing into things before unsteadily getting to his feet. He coughs weakly.]

"Thank you. I thought I was a goner..."

[Skald freezes up. The cat spoke! No. More than that. Skald KNEW that voice!]

Amewro? Amewro Ray?

[The dirty cat looks up resignedly, letting out another feline cough.]


[The cat nods in acknowledgement. It looks like you found a CLAW pilot digging through your garbage.]

[Archibald & Skald]     

[There's a video message coming on screen and its...very odd. At first you see nothing but a pair of fuzzy, twitchy ears.]

...lift me... a bit higher, my friend. Yes... that much, perfect.
[A cat with a pair of goggles pops out to the video, lifted by someone unseen. He stands proudly in front of the camera, and somehow... he speaks!]

Good day Unity Group. My name is Baron Archibald von Whiskers and this is my partner, Skald Skogkattson.
[There's sounds of a struggle offscreen while Archie speaks, sounds like one of the technicians and the other cat.]
'Just hold still, Its only going to take a-'
ABSOLUTELY NOT! One of my bloodline cannot simply be lifted and carried around like a common housecat! I am a WARRIOR!
'Yes well you still can't get onto that chair yourself can you?'

[You have no idea how, but you can FEEL the larger cat's gaze of dissaproval.]
Uhm. We are the pilots of the mecha Smilodon, which is currently residing in your hangar. There might be some explanation needed about the recent attack and theft at the research facilities recently.
The attack was perpetrated by C.L.A.W.;  The Cat's Liberation Army of the World. I'm sad to say that the organization is led by our mentor Socrates. You see he wants to take revenge upon the world for the death of our father, the good scientist who gave us the ability to speak and pilot mechs.
Our father's death was a sad affair, but I believe that my mentor is wrong. I believe that catkind and humans can live together. That's why we decided to stop him. And we need your help. Of course, we will help the cause of Unity Group as well. As you saw from the previous battle, Smilodon will be a great addition to your arsenal, and needless to say, we are great pilots.
[You can see him puffing proudly]
We'll gladly answer any further questions you have.

(Please note that in this Prompt Skald will have difficulty answering due to his refusal to be lifted to the camera - making this primarily an Archie post.)

[Given that they are pilots as well, they were probably going to get rooms right? Then again since they're cats its also equally likely that they were going to get shoved off onto someone else's room. In Skald's case though he merely chose to search for the most comfortable place he believed was suited to a warrior of his stature and deeds.]

 Ah... Truly this is a bed suitable for one such as myself! I shall claim it for my own!

[He kneads his claws into the pillow before settling himself onto it. Problem was... it was Asagi's pillow. Try to convince the cat to sleep somewhere else? (Especially if you're Asagi)]
