"Capper's Normal Dialogue"
DUNGEONS, DRAGONS, AND MORE DRAGONS
Capper had decided to take one last trek into Earth's wilderness. He was kind of tired of the planet's crazy shenanigans- the saiyan lost his left foot in his most recent escapade, and was now stuck with a peg-leg. Even before that, he was nabbed by a hungry dragon that just wanted to feed her babies. And even before THAT, Capper went Oozaru and went on a fearful rampage before being subdued outside of the city he had transformed in. Needless to say, Capper had quite the adventure on the blue marble known as Earth. Still, a part of him craved that rush and thrill of danger. Maybe it was his saiyan side- that craving for battle had turned into a desire for other things- he needed a thrill or a rush. But Capper was sure to take all the necessary precautions this time. He had a rather large brown backpack overflowing with supplies for survival. A handbook, matches, a knife, some tinder, plenty of food, a compass, and a jug of water slung around his form were just a few of the saiyan's supplies. Capper came prepared this time- he would NOT be loosing his other foot today! He had emergency plans for all sorts of things layed out. If some hungry beast wanted to prey on him, he would lash out at it with that knife he packed! If they were underground and got lost in a cave, Capper brought along some reflective markers and a wind-up flashlight to keep their trail intact! There was no way this could go wrong, right?... Right?
This time, Capper's misadventures had brought him deep into the Bamboo Woods of the Eastern Lands that were a few miles away from his home in the Spinach Wastes. The woods were awfully foggy for this morning hour, but Capper endured. He could only see a few feet in front of him, and anyone flying above would have a hard time navigating. But his trusty Scouter wouldn't let him down if someone dangerous was nearby! Alpha, Capper's android partner and drone buddy was alert on his shoulder, looking around and scanning the area whilst letting off a few low beeps. Capper had found a nice lady's cabin in the woods awhile ago. She smelt of chocolate and offered Capper a map of a ruined castle nearby, promising that there was a great treasure hidden in it's deepest reaches, which were not mapped. Her voice was strange, and had a faint echo to it for some reason, but she was nice enough to Capper. What could this whimsical treasure be? A hoard of gold? A ton of parts for his robots? The possibilities were endless! Capper now stood in what seemed to be the ruined grand hall of the castle. The ceiling was completely busted, revealing the distant spires of the castle in the fog. The place was overgrown with thorny weeds and long vines, ripe with some bitter-tasting purple fruits here and there. Sitting on an old chair, Capper kicked his feet around as he surveyed his map. He was getting awful close to the uncharted area where the treasure was supposed to be near....
Capper lied down, letting his head hang over the back of the chair as he traced his gloved finger across the sepia map, pinpointing his own location on the paper. He had been navigating the castle for a good two hours now... Soon enough, a shadow soared over Capper, causing the saiyan's hairs to stand on end. Oh no. He was not being eaten by another dragon today, no sir! Scampering to his feet, Capper quickly began to run to the shadows of the building, but a loud thud and a gust of wind behind him sent the saiyan spiraling to a faceplant. Turning around, the saiyan saw a magnificent silver-scaled dragon in front of him, breathing heavily. Yelping, Capper quickly backed up against the wall, tail curled around his body as he quivered in place. Closing his eyes, Capper could only wait for the metallic beast to come and swallow him whole. Seconds felt like an eternity as Capper shivered, eventually opening his eyes as a breath blew his hair backwards. Looking forwards, the saiyan let out another high-pitched yelp when the dragon's face was just inches from his as it sniffed him, before it took a few steps backwards, it's large head still lowered to his level. What was that look on it's face? Desperation? Fear? Misery? Lowering his guard just a little, a chill was sent down the saiyan's spine as the mighty dragon spoke.... Wait, spoke?
"Please..."Capper stared, blinking a few times with wide eyes as the dragon spoke in a pleading, shaky tone. He was shocked by the fact that a dragon could talk, and wasn't eating him right now! Still shaking, Capper lowered his arms just a little to look at the pleading monster, it's head still lowered, as if submitting to the small saiyan. "...W-what?" Capper spoke, his tone frightened and somewhat shocked, but fear was the dominant tone. The dragon eyed Capper, shaking it's large head before addressing the saiyan once more, it's tone frantic and pleading. "Please, you have to help me! There is no one else I can go to, and I am very short on time!" Capper finally lowered his guard, shock and confusion replacing his terror. Help? Help with what? Why wasn't he still in this monster's stomach? Why come to a weakling like him for help? Again, why wasn't he dead yet?! Shaking his head, Capper barked back to the beast, speaking in a dominant and shocked tone, still somewhat nervous. "W-WHAT?! F-f-first of all... Y-you can talk?!" The dragon rolled it's eyes, speaking in a more neutral tone now, calming down for a moment. "Well, yes. I learned how to from you Earthlings." Earthling... EARTHLING?! Capper was NOT a dumb human or Zoan, mind you! He was a proud saiyan mechanic, part of the best race in the universe and the equally best empire! Barking once more with a little growl, Capper stood up, holding his arms high at his sides. "I AM NOT AN EARTHLING!! Saiyan! Sai-yan! Got that?!" The dragon eyed Capper, closing it's eyes and gritting it's teeth. Shaking it's finned head once more, the beast's frantic tone returned. It was odd- seeing the man-eating beast of a dragon coming to it's prey for help. At least, Capper saw himself as prey to the beast. "Augh! That's hardly the point! I need your help!"
"Even if I were to trust that you weren't gonna eat me, what do you even need help with...?" Capper folded his arms, cheeks puffed out with his eyes closed. The bratty little saiyan's stoic and careless facade soon faded when the beast spoke once more, a look of utter shock, disgust, and horror crossing his face when he realized what the dragon was implying. "My... My child. She killed my wife and..." Oh snap. Capper was the bad guy right now. The father dragon's struggle struck something within Capper. Were his parents like this when he "died" during the Invasion? Were they just as desperate and terrified? Not sure what to say, the now somewhat calm and somewhat sad saiyan spoke to the shining dragon. "Oh... I'm uh, sorry..." Gritting his teeth, the silver beast spoke in a disgusted and begging tone, telling a more detailed tale of what exactly happened. "A despicable woman stole my child in hopes of using her young blood as the last ingredient to her concoction to summon up... something. I don't know-- I was knocked out cold before I could tell what.... So please! You're my only hope, little one!"
Capper pondered for a moment. Should he help the dragon? Capper wasn't sure what he could do to help the beast, but it would be wrong not to help a father save his child... Nodding, Capper agreed to help the beastie. "Fine. But don't call me little, got that?!" Capper spoke, pointing a finger to the beast as it lowered it's head, seeming to submit to the little saiyan. Grateful, the beast spoke in a gratified tone rather quickly. "Oh, thank you!" The beast raised it's head for a moment, approaching the small saiyan as he stood up, clearing his throat to gain the dragon's attention once more. "So, uh, I'm Capper. Capper Hofferson." Capper introduced himself to the thirty-foot-long beastie, who nodded, bowing his massive head as he introduced himself. "Chronos. It is great to meet you, Capper. I am eternally grateful for your aid."
And with that, Capper's scouter let off a few beeps, causing Chronos to raise and tilt his large head. Someone was awfully close now! "Wait! Someone's close!" Capper spoke, looking around with his new dragon companion to pinpoint this new person. Walking into a giant dragon in the fog would be... quite shocking, to say the least.
