Alex glared at the hedgehog, what could she possibly know about her? "You don't know me... What makes you think you do!?" she exclaimed as she prepared a fireball in her hand. Roxie just smiled. "Birds of a feather I guess... Blake says I have a knack for finding people like me... But how could I not? It's so easy to see it in their eyes."
Alex kept the fireball in her hand but eyed Roxie as she just showed off her cybernetics. "You know that pain? The one where your arm should be. Even when you know it's not there... that you shouldn't be feeling anything." Her smile will be come melancholic. "Very few people can relate, but even fewer people know what the next levels like..." She lowered her arm. "When something more than just a limb is taken. I home, a friend, whatever it might be... that phantom pain is bloody indescribably!"
"Am I right?" Alex didn't want to admit it, but Roxie was right. All that pain, all that loss, it was enough to tear most people apart. The flame in her hand faded away as she lowered it. "Where... Are you even going with this?" she said with the same glare. "I wanna help you!" Roxie stated with the same charismatic smile, but something caught her attention before she could continue. "One sec..."
"Wait! What do you mean by... That..." Alex tried calling after the pirate captain and watched as she again brushed off an attack, Zane and Axel's attack no less! What in the world was this girl, and what she going on about? Help? Alex had her hand to her face, all that Roxie said was getting to her.
Meanwhile, the scorpion was giving Cynthia a run for her money. He shot down her javelin with ease and then started unloading clips right at her, she had to turn her whole body metal just to block the oncoming bullets. "Sheesh... Someone's getting trigger happy!" she said as she was about to charge at him, when she broke her mental note, 'watch out for the tail.' The scorpion's tail seemed to come out of nowhere and it melted all of Cynthia's armor off.
"Crap!! Stupid tail!!" she tried to duck in cover again but a bullet rang past her and got her shoulder. "Agh... Ok... I'm gonna have to get versatile here..." she mumbled. She grabbed a piece of rubber that was in her pocket and morphed her body into it, her whole body turned into a shiny, jet black color as she curled into a ball and spindashed at the scorpion, who was trying to get away.
The scorpion saw her coming and released a cloud of gas, but it did nothing to Cynthia much to his surprise. She collided right into the scorpion and sent him skidding across the ground. Cynthia laughed. "How do ya like that? Your acid may melt metal but that's all it's even good for." she said taunting the gunslinger.
