Contemmo trusted Charles and if Charles trusted River not to divulge his origin: so would he. He remained calm as the shinigami explained how Contemo came to be here. She just seemed to dismiss it entirely. Rebuffed slightly, Contenmo sat back in his seat and looked out the window as they passed numerous shops and houses. His golden hues followed citizens as the carriage rolled by. Their expressions were of surprise and disbelief. A noble in this area of soul society? Unheard of.

Contemmo slowly let the drape for the window fall back into place: withdrawing his hand from the soft cloth. "I think. Believe you are right. Correct." Contenmo would answer Charles' first statement. "How will I join? Integrate?" He asked, voicing his concerns.

Charles nodded at River as she shrugged away the mentioning of Contenmo’s past. He was not willing to openly discuss all the details. Still, She would live in the manor with both him and his love. She should know some of the details. Only Sasuga and Ikasu were aware of the role the new positive soul formerly held. If word got out, it would make things complicated for Charles, and infinitely worse for Contenmo. After all, at best he would be mined for data on how to infiltrate and decimate Hueco Mundo. In recent years, they have held various and destructive raids against all of the Seireitei. Charles was not aware of the last time the shimigami had mounted a direct assault on the world of the hollows. Perhaps that was the point? The attacks were inevitable, and if one side did not attack, the other would. Such was only a matter of defenses and time. If an advantage was perceived, it was taken. Charles wondered where he should devote visible energies as the captain of a squad. Should he bolster defenses, or arm the troops for an assault? An interesting riddle. Logically, he realized that he could do both for the initial steps. Making tools available to the soldiers of the Seireitei would empower them. Squads could either attack or dig in when the next strike comes. What is more disconcerting is how the ‘savage’ individuals were banding together more frequently than the shimigami. They were organized despite being more wild and base. Charles trusted River enough to let her know that Contenmo was on their side now. Just not prepared to tell her that he was the Maestro. Of course, that raised the possibility- until the next Maestro is named . . . should they launch? Likely not. The Maestro is not the only defense of Hueco Mundo, just the guardian of the arrancars.

Charles was lost in those thoughts when he heard River go on. Charles’ eyes widen in surprise as he hears her plans so openly. She was going for a captain’s seat as well? The shock lasted only long enough to understand the implications of that move. Three, not two. Three captains in house Takena! Charles immediately saw this as part of his destiny. Manifest destiny, he was becoming legendary through his own power and association! Contenmo had no problem with the challenges he was to face. When he looked to River, he saw she was barely any stronger than he was in that moment. Such concerned Charles. He was nearly three times this strength before he faced Mayuri. Then again, not everybody is as dangerous as that mad clown was. In any case, it might be a benefit. Politically, it would more than solidify the noble rank. In the military, they would essentially control a quarter or so of the squads together. What needed done was preparation and a bit of prodding.
“Really? Most impressive goals. I had no idea you were so ambitious. Perhaps I can be of aid in preparation. I’d be glad to spar with you and get you ready. As for your choice- I suggest you remain with your strengths. Squad 8 would allow you to shine as the organizational and engineering genius that you are. Not to mention, with me developing, you building, and Mokusatsu as an attacking arm- we would control an army unto ourselves.” The malicious glee was not even attempted to be hidden. Charles loved this idea. He was not even going to bother voicing his support for their ambitions. It went without saying. Of course, that raised a new issue. Charles offered to spar with her- and he suddenly realized he had precious few attacks to use. She would be well-armed or prepare to be. To that end, Charles had to think of new attacks and options. The problem is, he did not like relying upon his sword. A zanpaktou can be dropped, taken, or broken. He needed something more personal. How did Mayuri solve this? Oh yes . . . biological engineering. Perhaps I should look into that. With but a thought, Charles accessed his system’s butler program.

Code:
Captain: Vigil- access Mayuri Kurosutchi’s files on biological restructuring. Reference the Reishi repurposing data and research, and begin to search for a way to alter the body into weaponry for melee and area attacks.

V: Yes, sir. Going to be turning into a flying monkey this week?

Captain: Not if I can help it, but options are always beneficial.


Charles cut the link there, the exchange only lasting a second. With no outward clue, the conversation continued as normal. Charles thought what to call the virus. Malleable Extremities ReConstruction Emergence Retrovirus. The MERcER virus. Yes, that should suffice for now. A biological weapon. As long as he had a body, Charles would be armed. He almost smirked at the pun of being ‘armed.’ His plans were interrupted by a valid concern that he had not enterained yet from Contenmo. How to integrate? How indeed. Charles furrowed his brow and looked down for a moment. He had to consider that plan. The captain was so excited to welcome his love home, he hadn’t considered what to tell others. After a few moments of thought, he looked up and over to his love who was staring at the curtain. “We will tell others something more insidious than a lie. A half-truth. We will tell them that you came to a very rough area, left to your own devices. That you were a survivor in a difficult situation. You met me as I snuck out of the squad to gather information and data for my own plans. We began an alliance based on such an exchange, and grew to care for one another in time. We were from vastly different situations and each had our own lives to keep up appearances for. Now that I am not only a captain, but a noble, I had a way to bring you out of that place and into my arms. Now you are one of the shimigami and a noble because you are mine, and I greedily bring you to me.” A smile crept on his face. Charles was winging this tale, but he was working the truth into a lie. There was enough truth to explain everything, but no mention of the true origins of Contenmo. A half-truth, obscured within lies of omission. The captain smiled and nodded, liking this plan thus far. It could be adjusted later, but between his mind, Contenmo’s chaotic persona, and River’s deviousness, they would maintain that masquerade until his past no longer mattered. A successful captain is one that should not be questioned.

The carriage was beginning to travel deeper and deeper into the Seireitei, and soon would arrive at the manor. Charles began to grow a little nervous. He did not want to disappoint Contenmo. Given what was once his home- all of Hueco Mundo, a single house may seem a pittance. That disapproval seemed more dangerous to him than any weapon or opponent ever could be.

River's smile is demure yet sly as she sits with the two men. "This shall be quite an entertaining enterprise, indeed." she says with rapt interest. The crossing of her legs causes her skirt to slide up slighty, but not enough to expose her indecently. She has clearly done this before. The woman places her arms on the back of the plush carriage seat upon which she is sat and comments, "Mokusatsu, sugar, don't misunderstand me, dear heart. I like you rather a lot, but my point simply was that your past will not affect your present with me. We are rather ... relaxed in certain regards where I am from. That is the sum and whole of my meaning." She blows a kiss at both men and then looks out the window. "The rabble out there will know our names, by either awe or admiration. I am not particular about which one. I would like both, however. While we do our thing, I will keep currying favor for our little family. I will also support our sweet Lord Mokusatsu. He will be a valuable addition to my plans, and I can only hope to be a benefit to him. You wish it made, I will make it. No questions asked." She reaches into her blouse and pulls out a shinigami cell phone and tosses it to Contemno. "Mokusatsu, I built this for you when I was aware that you existed. Anybody important to Ikikomi is important to Mica. Therefore, dear heart, for you a special phone preloaded with numbers to everybody who is anybody here in the seireitei, apps to both be useful and delight you, and of course a few other functions that I think that you would like. Of course, if you want any modifications, I will gladly do them for you." Her enthusiasm is only curbed by her feminine will of self control.

Contenmo took the phone offered to him by River as Charles divulged his clever plan. Mokusatsu listened with rapt attention and silently nodded in agreement. It was all true. But the full truth was hidden with omission. Giving enough detail to prevent questioning but not divulging enough to compromise Contemmo's position. He raised the phone in both hands to eye level and stared at it quizzically. He had never seen such a device before and was nearly compelled to chew on it. But. He refrained. River probably wouldn't care for him chewing on her pretty toy. "Who decides. Picks what squad. Division I join?" Contemmo would ask after several seconds of silence as he stared at the LED screen.

Charles nods in agreement with River’s estimation. He was correct in his assumptions- River both deserved to know the complicity of the situation, and would not raise an eyebrow at it. That made her a willing accomplice and confidant. Reynardine may or may not be worth bringing into this little secret, but Contenmo deserved to feel at ease in his own home. In Charles’ home. In their home. The thought made him smile like a schoolboy. It was all coming to fruition. He would be legend, and it would be so perfect. Charles and Contenmo, side by side, hand in hand, and the world itself would tremble. Their reputations would be transcendent across realms. Again, he imagined what he had thought would happen for that traitorous little s**t Yidhra with new players. Charles walking into an area, behind and to his right, Contenmo walking at his flank. River taking the same position to his left. A wedge formation of them coming in that nobody could ignore or disrespect. Yes- it will be perfection! River continued to discuss how people would know them, via admiration or awe. At that moment, he could not help but consider an alternative. They will respect me, or fear me. Perhaps both. That little conceit was what likely made him the most insidious version of canonical evil. He was not the type to stand on the nearest tall roof and let a cape billow in the wind. Charles would not announce his evil plan to the world so the ‘hero’ could foil his plans. No, he was the insidious type to put on the face of a comrade. He would slowly integrate himself into systems and the world around him. Only after his trap is set and sprung will those around him realize they never had a chance. Charles will be untouchable. His reach will slither through all defenses, his influence affecting all. In some corner of his mind, Charles even fancied a coup de ta and becoming the Soul King himself. Oh, how he would revel in the ultimate power of this world!

What brought the captain out of that reverie was the mention by River of plans. Not in her ambition, but the wording. When she reached into her blouse to retrieve a phone, Charles’ voice was soft and carried the weight of a warning under the diplomatic tone of an ally.
“As long as your plans are in line with mine.” After all, Charles may be only her equal for now, but the captain did not like the idea of her rivaling himself. Perhaps now that they were equal in relative strength and shared the cautious and sly nature made her a greater threat. He had wanted her as an ally- a resource. Now he was forced to wonder if she is just as valuable as an ally . . . because she would be a damned difficult enemy. Still, that possibility was not high yet. He was offering to help her practice and train to ascend to her own captaincy. She also seemed to genuinely like both himself and Contenmo. That last point was immediately countered in his mind of her status as a consort for who knows how long. She made a thriving business and living as a harlot of the highest caliber. A woman that made many feel special and genuinely cared for. Charles still greatly valued her and did not doubt her, but he still was cautious. He was keenly aware that he could be the greatest mark for a trickster: one smart enough to think himself above her, and rich enough to make her dreams come true. When she begins to act against him, he will be hypervigilant of her. Until then, he knew to give her the same freedoms. After all, their partnership is still to their mutual benefit.

River handed the phone over, and Charles did not miss the action. She built it for him? How strange. She knew that Charles had a lover that superseded her, and made a gift? Perhaps that was simply preparing, perhaps it was ingratiating herself to the one that was her only true competition. Charles only nodded with a smile, and offered a
“Thank you, My Lady.” She was making her efforts to be kind, and again, the captain felt his analyitical mind step into action. This time, he was able to counter it more forcefully. She aided him in getting here. River supported him in his time of need. She has more than earned a bit of respect and leeway. With some effort, Charles put away his suspicions. River was not above suspicion- nobody was. She was however, far more trusted than nearly any other person he knew. Contenmo took the gift and examined it. Charles wondered what Contenmo was thinking then with a smile. The world he came from did not seem to have need or at least use of such trinkets. He simply held it and stared while asking a rather fundamental question. He did not go through the academy yet, so he was unaware of what all was involved in the hierarchy. The world he was from was ruled by power.

Charles kept smiling and looked to his love.
“You do. Shimigami decide what squad they prefer and petition to join. A request typically granted. Before we go that far, we have a few issues with your new identity. You are clearly strong enough to best many, but I have yet to see a zanpaktou for you. This is something I cannot simply give you. It is an extension of your own soul, and the form through which most of your powers will originate. The uniform is a simple matter- the weapon is the challenge. If we do not find a way to summon your blade and release, I may know an individual that can be of some help. He forged a second zanpaktou for me- I am sure we can get him to forge an initial one for you.” Again, Charles betrays his feelings for those in the carriage as it moves down the paths of the Seireitei. He kept his second weapon a secret, a surprise for those that thought to take his primary weapon away and leave him without mode of attack. If this was the route he had to take, such might prove a problem. The man was not an ally, and his secrecy might prove difficult to procure. That was a last resort, but still . . . Tom had the skills needed. Soul weapons were something the 12th has yet to provide a way to make. The carriage was approaching the manor. He could not help but be glad to be home. His strength was surging again. Between the secrecy and the fluctuating power within him, secrecy would be a good thing about now.

River's sultry smile is sly and revealing about her true nature. "I am on duty this month for providing access to Zanpakutou Grotto where the Asauchi can be gained. I can help point him out to the most impressive and most worthy of being dear Moko's worthy zanpakutou partner. I am not supposed to influence this, but for you I will." To her rules are guidelines and suggestions meant to be pushed, bent, and used to her advantage. "After all, they never said that i can't lead you to the best areas. A man like you should have fighting abd bonding with it. Of course Tom, as Charles said, will be useful. The stronger you are, the stronger your zanpakutou. As well is making the most out of your partner. Mine and myself are so close that you would never know which of us is which if you met her." Her slender legs uncross and recross as she changes position in the carriage. "Ah, home now."

Contemmo listened to them as he fiddled with the phone before slipping the device carefully into his pocket. It would be a waste to accidentally break it after all the hard-work River had put into it for him. They spoke of zanpaktou's and grottos and finding the perfect one. This was alien to him. In Hueco-mundo your zanpaktou was always a part of you. You didn't need to find its name or look for one. It didn't force you to train for it or meditate. It was just there. Always a piece of your being. He gave them both a quizzical look as if they were crazy but held his tongue. Contenmo trusted them to know what they were talking about. "Where is this place. Location?" He asks instead. Curious to understand how their, and subsequently his, world worked. It was very different. Like going from the jungle to a palace. Laws were different. Nature didn't rule here but sophistication. Order. And regulations. They followed a strict set of rules and that was different. In hueco-mundo: the only laws were strength and cunning.

Having finally had her fill of hunting for the day, River approaches the northern gate with a disdainful expression. How the hell did this miss her to do list? Never mind that, she decides, and she makes a few quick calls and pretty soon the seki seki stone is delivered for the repairs. She draws up the plans for the gate and wall around it, and quickly does the math for the materials. Perfect, her guesstimate was bang on, if not provisioned with more than is originally planned for. Though nothing will go to waste. The north rukongai, even with its reputation for being untamed, lawless, and full of criminal activity, has been improving in conditions ever since the current set of judges have been focusing on improving conditions within the Soul Society for the sakes of those who dwell within its borders. A fact that she has noted, but opted to not take for granted as she is doubling the resistance of the walls as much as she can manage. The general had assured her that he would lend his aid once more, all things considered. As such it is not long before Tseen is there to help out with the shoring up of the gates. All of them shall receive their increase as needed to match what is being done to these walls. The two of them work together for a good long while, even with Tseen pitching in with his special abilities. After all, he does seem to have a knack for such things. "Thank you for your help, sir," she says. "Don't worry about it. If I don't help you, then that means that I am allowing this place to become the same target all over again. Even if the other top brass are not interested in actually aiding the Soul Society, I am. I made a promise to the King and I intend on keeping it." That is the sum and total of their interaction as usual, but there is a mutual respect between the two concerning this subject. It would do neither of them any good to allow this place to fall, even if they have two vastly different reasons for doing this deed today. Once they are finished, they move on to the east gate.
