Radasha flew full speed towards the ruins of the old Tuffle city. Clothed in a grey tunic-like top, white pants, her battle armor boots, and her sword sheathed at her side, she tapped at her scouter. She'd learned from Acadovah that the items she removed from Kaula's body before she burned it had gone missing in the time she was knocked out to her waking up in the medical center. She watched as the reticule of her scouter moved along the lense before it locked onto a large power. She had to rely on it since the person she was looking for was no longer alive technically.
" 'That 'cyborg' came and picked up the items'" she repeated the words she'd been relayed as she flew, gritting her teeth. Those were not his to take. The goggles Radasha didn't really care about. It was the scarf and sword. Those two things were important. The scarf because it was a gift to Kaula from her. The sword because....she swore it looked familiar. I'd say it was his but...there's no way... she thought to herself. There is no way they'd meet.....Right?...
Radasha sighed. She'd have to ponder on the mystery later. After she had recovered those items. Coming up on the ruins, the, now, mother of one landed and began walking. With a shout she called out: "BING! You have some things that I would like back! And I'm not leaving without them!"
A disappointed sigh escaped the lips of the Solar Cyborg as he sat dejectedly upon a ruined building. His feet hung limply over the edge, swinging aimlessly back and forth. He stared at an item in his hand; a sword, still in its sheath. The sword belonged to an old friend whom he just recently killed. Wrapped around the hilt was a colorful scarf, topped off by a pair of broken goggles. He gripped the sword tight in his metallic hand, nearly bending the holster as he did.
"Damn kid... Shoulda just stayed home..."
His eyes closed, before suddenly reopening. Something powerful was coming this way, he could feel it. The worst part was? It felt familiar. He stood up, hopping off the building, and landing softly on the dirt beneath him. He walked forwards, his eyes turning towards the sky, awaiting the arrival of the newest Super Saiyan: Radasha.
In a sudden instant, something came bursting through a nearby pile of rubble! It was an ancient, orb-shaped machine; most likely of Tuffle origin. It charged at Bing, attempting to drive right through the Cyborg with a rusted blade that jutted out of its center. Bing easily side-stepped the attack, tossing a punch towards the machine as it flew by. The sheer force of his strike was enough to turn the machine into a pile of scrap. Sparks flew from the machines corpse, signifying its total demise. It was disappointing, but at least it wouldn't get in the way of talking to Radasha.
As if on queue, the Saiyan touched down, calling out for Bing. His sense told him that she'd landed on the opposite side of this dilapidated building. He walked alongside the edge of the once-impressive building, before arriving within Radasha's sight.
"It's sad, isn't it? The Tuffles went through so much to try and save their home, going as far as making it a barren wasteland... And yet they still fell. The only memory of their existence is this ghost of a town which serves as the final resting place for their restless souls."
He stepped towards the Super Saiyan, a somber expression as he stared down at the sword in his hand. "I'm guessing you came for these momentos? Hoping to keep them for your daughter until she returns from the land of the dead?"
He gripped the sword a bit tighter, before letting out another sigh. The Cyborg handed over all three items without fuss; though he wanted to keep the items in question, they were not his to keep. "I know it doesn't mean much coming from me, but... Your Daughter was a great warrior. If things were different, maybe she would be the one who was still standing..."
Radasha eyed the machine. It had to be centuries since the Tuffles fell and yet their machines still functioned in this large ruined city, a place that was now one big tomb. It wasn't all death and gloom though. As uninhabitable as it looked, there WERE creatures that prowled the ruins. Some that used the destron gases to ambush weakened prey. "The ruins are more lively than one might think." she stated simply on that matter.
At the mention of the items and her want of them she sighed. "I do not know if my daughter can come back or not....I heard her mention something about that before her death...something about someone having done so before. I don't know if that's true. If so then if anyone can do it, Kaula can. But I don't hold out hope for something like that..." she said, casting her gaze downward. She looked up again when he offered them items without fuss. So there was something of the man he was left in there. The corner of her mouth twitched a bit as she took the items.
Staring at them, she swallowed. Wrapping the scarf around her neck and slinging the sheathed sword's strap over her shoulder, she tossed the goggles to him. "I mainly wanted the scarf and sword. You can keep the goggles. She was a comrade to you before you ended up like this so you should have something to remember her as well..." she said, sighing. "I know you wouldn't have fought her if you had been in full control of your actions, and you didn't kill her. She killed herself. It's not right for me to place any blame on anyone for it....Maybe Zucceta indirectly....If she hadn't turned you into...that...you wouldn't have drawn her away. She wouldn't have been enraged over Rei's death which probably wouldn't have happened. She wouldn't have been furious enough to use that technique...." she stated, gaze going downward again.
"Suppose that's why I'm leaving. I was planning on leaving military service anyway...but now...I can't even be on this world anymore..." she said, clenching her fist.
"A few have returned from death, yes. I am certain that Kaula will return one day, though how soon is unknown."
A small smile appeared as Radasha lobbed the goggles back to him. It was a kind gesture, and one he certainly did not expect. He bowed politely as he spoke. "Thank you, Miss Radasha." As he stood back up, he hid the goggles in a small compartment on his metallic bicep. The goggles seemed to fit the compartment perfectly; a coincidence, or something more?
At the mention of Radasha's plan to leave SSE service, Bing nodded somberly. It was for the best that she leave the planet as quick as possible, for there was always the chance she might get in trouble for her previous actions. He would have normally just waved her goodbye, but he had a request for her first.
He rubbed the back of his head nervously, before quickly speaking his mind. "I know I'm in no position to ask a favor of you... But if you go to Earth, please do me this one thing for me..." He sighed deeply, before looking Radasha in the eyes. "There's a woman on Earth named Maeve. She is... Well... she WAS my fiance. If you see her, please don't tell her I've become this. I don't know how she'll react, but I know it won't be good."
Radasha nodded. "Yes...The swordswoman. I've already met her. We sparred when i first arrived on Earth before Red's take down and the invasion. You actually missed her...She was on world before you and Zucceta arrived on Vegeta. She believes you're dead." she said, sighing. "If you ever...regain full control of your body...When you are not the mercy of whatever those machines do to you. You should go find her. She might be upset...but less so than if she were to see you as you are now, under SSE control."
Clutching at kaula's scarf a bit, she spoke more. "Honestly i'm unsure what I'd do if Kaula had come home in a state like that....but Maeve is probably more open-minded than me on the subject. She never struck me as technophobic..." she stated, chuckling a bit.
There was nobody else around, that was certain. The ruins of the Tuffle civilization were empty at the best of times, and anyone with even a mildly trained Ki sense could tell that nobody had approached. Yet, a voice echoed out to Radasha, and only her, seeming to come from inside her head. A voice that, given the last time she had heard it, would likely produce some poor memories.
After all, when the previous instance of this happening was moments before an attempted planetary annihilation event, it was less than a positive connotation.
"Radasha, I apologize for the intrustion, but I felt obliged to warn you. Recent events have forced my hand. You may not be aware, but I was willingly killed by Reikiko in order for her to evolve. If you were on Vegeta, you likely know what happened next. With Rei and Kaula dead... I have lost my last restraint. I will not let my friends, family, and so many others die."
His voice grew harder, and somewhat bitter. "I felt regret for my attempt at blowing up Vegeta before. That was.... unwise. However, given what Kaula, Toma and Maeve's interference lead to... I cannot share their mercy any longer. I ask, once more, for your sake as well as your family's... leave Vegeta quietly. I will not be destroying that planet."
"However.... I am going to tear the SSE to the ground, regardless of how I have to accomplish it. I do not wish you to get caught in that crossfire. I'm already going to have to fight my best friend."
Walker used Telepathy to contact Radasha! Impending Feels Alert!

Contrary to popular belief, the Tuffle Ruins were not completely empty. The Simian race that had evacuated there with Brassica had managed to construct a walled settlement, using the nearby Ruins around them as building materials, with the Saiyan girl's mismatched ship at its heart. Of course, the Saiyan Goddess remained with her people when she wasn't visiting the Saiyan capital or anywhere else on this planet, and found the sight of her adopted people striving, and slowly thriving on this distant strange world to be quite an impressive one. They had recently managed to get a few seedlings to actually grow in the soil around here, and they estimated that in a few years time, they should have the beginnings of a new jungle here on this planet. The next trick as far as Brassica was concerned, was maintaining that jungle, given how poorly the Empire seemed to manage its natural resources every now and again.
Speaking of concern, an explosion in the distance caught her attention. The Saiyan immediately set off to investigate, soon coming upon the scene of the mother Saiyan she'd seen the day that Zucceta had called out for people to smack the Queen about... and the metallic warrior male as well. "What in the hell?" she pondered before something on the ground caught her attention. She focused her Sight on it, which turned out to be site where the explosion had come from. There were scrap pieces of metal everywhere from something... except those pieces weren't remaining scrap for very long. Each piece that had been broken was turning into some kind of silver goop... and reforming into a bunch of spheres.
Brassica didn't have much time to ponder over this strange thing before the new swarm of spheres began to open fire at anything and everything nearby that wasn't a sphere! The short haired Saiyan grit her teeth before unleashing a barrage of ki blasts into the metallic host. "What in all the pits of hell are these things?!" she roared over the noise of explosions. Her eyes widened as the ones that weren't immediately vaporised began to reform into even more tiny spheres. Whatever this thing was, it was damned good at its job that's for sure!
"S-she was here?... I'm glad she left before I got here. If we met... I don't know what I'd do with myself." He stared down at his robotic hand, clenching it into a fist. Images of the Draconic Swordswoman flashed before his eyes, causing him to shut them, due to a mixture of fear and sadness. Simply thinking about her hurt. Radasha recommended Bing try to reconnect with the girl sometime after he broke free of his control. He nodded. "I guess, in some way, I'm nearly there. I can control myself most of the time... But sometimes there's just this unquenchable urge to fight, and I can't stop myself! Though to be honest, I don't know if its the cybernetics causing it..."
In a sudden instant, a large collective of Ki showed up on Bing's scanner. He turned just as a handful of hefty explosions rocked the area. It seemed that some foolish Saiyan had re-awoken the robot Bing had slain earlier, and it was now multiplying!
The Solar Cyborg quickly dashed in front of Radasha, batting away a large Ki blast that was headed her way. He knew she wouldn't have needed the help, but it was mostly just instinct that made him move in the way.
"This should be simple to deal with. Just keep firing until they can't reform!"
Bing hopped into the air, quickly aiming both hands down towards the swarm of silver monsters. He fired a barrage of Ki attacks, hoping to cut off the last of this beasts life.
Radasha chuckled a bit. "Wanting to fight isn't a bad thing. How about turning that urge inward and fighting those bits of scraps' control over you. Free yourself so you can fight more, for what and who you want." she said. She seemed about to say something else but stopped. A look of confusion quickly became one of irritation. "Dammit Walker!" she cursed. Wait why was she mentioning him? She closed her eyes and tried responding to the tree man mentally. She wasn't sure it'd work...after all it hadn't when he first tried to destroy Vegeta.
"You know you won't win right? You could be potentially be dealing with two Saiyans that were around Kaula's level as well as the Queen. And based on what you just said, I assume you already know about Bing. I would make an estimate that he matches the Queen in power. You can't fight those odds Walker....And I'm not just going to leave without warning them of potential attack. So they'll probably be expecting you."
As she was having this internal conversation with Walker, The Tuffle creation Bing had blown apart had reformed it's pieces into more, which had begun opening fire upon them. Radasha didn't even bother dodging, raising a hand to swat a shot aimed at her. Between this and Walker's message, the older Saiyan was beyond irritated now. With a yell, the Saiyan mother ascended into her Super state, long black hair becoming golden as she raised a hand. "Useless old relics of a dead race! DISAPPEAR!"
With that, electric, purple ki began to flow through her body, converging toward her right hand. "SPERA'S WRATH" With that shout, she aimed her hand at the bunch of spheres and release a purple bolt, which raced through the air towards the Tuffle creations. When it hit one, the electricity bounced from it to another, and another, chaining from one to the other until they all were alight with purple energy. Then it was like a chain reaction, all the spheres exploding one after the other, unable to handle the energy the Super Saiyan had shot into them. Lowering her hand, the Saiyan mother huffed. "This is why I don't come to this part of town..." she muttered. partially joking.
There was silence for a moment, and then a snort. "Please. Two Saiyans of Kaula's level? I assume you're talking about Mayze, and probably the Commander? The second, I might believe, but I have a very recent account of Mayze's battle prowess, and it's far from that level. Please don't treat me like an idiot. Besides...." The voice seemed oddly amused at something, and more than a little angry.
"You're making several crucial mistakes here. First, you assume that I haven't found my own source of power. Second, when did I say I was coming to Vegeta? Third... Unlike certain others..." At this point, his voice was plainly scornful, the words almost spitting out. "I have no intention of fighting that disgusting faction you've chosen to serve alone, and somehow expecting to win. You and yours aren't the only ones capable of finding legends." It almost seemed like he was about to cut the connection, but then paused. "Oh. By the way, if you see Bing... He should know his condition isn't a secret anymore. The Z-Fighters are aware. The Earth will be ready for him, and he will be stopped."
Thankfully she was getting some assistance in taking out these metal sphere things, and soon enough they were all gone. Brassica floated there, panting a little before she regarded the two of them. "Thought this place was cleared out of that... stuff." she said, getting her energy back and trying to assess the situation. Now that she wasn't being attacked by random floating metal balls of death, she could confirm that these two were indeed the same people who had been at Zucceta's little brawl session. And now they were here, near her adopted people's new settlement... Even though that one of them was one of the Super Saiyans the Empire seemed to have an abundance in, and the other was some sort of bio-technological menace, both of them far stronger than her, she was still on the defensive. "So... what brings you two to my stretch of jungle?" the short haired Saiyan asked, eyeing the two of them cautiously.
Arias flew right for the tuffle ruins, noting a curious amount of energy there. Flicking her tail as she did so, the pregnant warrior curled it around her waist, flying at high speeds for the ruins. Her face was blank, and she gave away no emotions in her ki energy. She approached the ruins, and halted in midair when hearing voices. Noting one powerful energy, about Super Saiyan levels like her own, the Saiyaness tested her blue scouter to read out the power levels of Brassica and Radasha.
The Saiyan female was an eyesore against the sky, red armor amongst her pale skin and brown hair, which was long at that. Figuring she in turn was being scanned, Arias descended and looked around, noticing a half-robot with an SSE brand. Figuring this was the robot 'kami', whatever the hell that was. under the control of her queen Zucceta, the female Saiyan bowed respectfully to Bing, before standing back up and speaking. Her voice was blank, giving nothing away as did her stone cold deep blue eyes, one behind a lighter blue scouter.
"Greetings. You are Bing, correct? I am here to apologize for my brief absence for two months. I could not check in while on my mission, and was sidetracked and detained by the Galactic Patrol. I managed to flee, and return back to the home world. I recently obtained a scouter, as I really did not see the need for it now. I am also with child, albeit not at my wishes at first. I will raise them to serve you and the queen in the name of the Saiyan Solar Empire. The name is Arias, and I am at your service. I am reporting in after my absence." She bowed again, looking up as she stood back up, face blank as she waited for the response of Bing.
A sigh quickly escaped the Cyborg as the last of the strange machine was wiped out. He was hoping to have a simple moment with Radasha before she went on her way, but it seemed it had... Devolved into something else entirely. He descended to the ground, landing softly next to the smoldering ground that once was inhabited by that strange silver monster. His brow furrowed. What exactly was that thing anyways? It was unlike any old Tuffle technology he'd ever seen.
He quickly turned to the Saiyan woman who'd set off this strange creature. From what he could tell, this woman was only recently added to the ranks of the Solar Empire, alongside her "simians" or whatever she dubbed them.
"This is no jungle, Miss. This is a death trap that's rusted many times over. It'd be in your best interest to leave this part of Vegeta alone. If the machines don't end your life, the Destron Gas that oozes out of some of these buildings will claim your soul before the grim reaper can finish sharpening his scythe."
Before he could continue his conversation with either of these women, a third Ki Signature closed in rapidly. The mystery warrior quickly landed, revealing themselves to be a pregnant SSE Woman. She bowed to Bing, before speaking in an oddly emotionless voice. The Cyborg placed a hand on his temple, rubbing it as he sighed with disappointment. "Look, kid, can you drop the 'emotionless warrior' act? I'm not in the mood to humor your... Whatever it is you're doing."
He turned back to Radasha, a somewhat annoyed tone noticeable in his voice. "Maybe you should get going before the entire damn army comes out here to relax."
Radasha sighed, rubbing her head as Walker spoke again. For your information, I'm leaving the SSE. I can't....be here anymore. I'm planning on heading to Earth. But don't take that as me joining your side or whatever....I'm doing my own thing from now on. I am neutral party now.. she relayed to Walker. She then sighed again, turning to Bing. "If Maeve is in this 'Z-fighter' group or is social with them, then she probably already knows about your condition Bing. Walker just informed me that group knew." she said. She wondered how he'd take that information.
Turning to the woman int he blue outfit, she responded. "I was here to collect some items of my daughter's...." she said, before chuckling a bit, her hair fading back to black. "If you can make an existence out here in the ruins then power to you....Personally I wouldn't be able to stand all the contraptions still running around out here. That, and I'd rather live in a whole building rather than the skeleton of one..."
She then looked to the pregnant soldier, frowning. It reminded her even more of the child she lost. She had to get off this damn planet soon.
