The Parts shop (Open RP)

The place was a gadgeteer toy store. The latest smart phones to high tech computer 3D holographic interfaces. As well as items for the cybernetically enhanced. The store was public and not quite so public, what was known was it was a store of high tech and super high tech gear. What wasn't known was the owner sometimes installs said cybernetics to discreet clients.

Up on the main floor the store employees did their normal day to day jobs. Right now their boss was down in the basement looking over a client. "You bought a defective item Mr. Baster." ALX-32 said as he examined the malfunctioning cybernetic arm. "I Know that! Do something before this feedback kills me." The arm was modified to be a weapon to produce high amounts of electricity. The problem was the safety to prevent the electrical charge from frying the human it was attached to was faulty. "I am doing working on it Mr. Baster, you could have saved yourself some pain and cost if you had just came to me in the first place."

Mr. Baster sighed "Yeah yeah just get it done will you." ALX didn't make any physical changes, but in his possessor one word came across HUMANS. He places the mask over Baster's mouth and nose administrating the knock out gas. Then once the patient was out he proceeded to operate.

An hour later Baster woke up. "I was able to repair the flaw in that low quality merchandise thus saving you some funds. Return in a month for a follow up. Then again in three months to make sure your tissue is growing properly and the nerve. Next time I trust you visit me first. You can leave through the back door when "

ALX headed up stairs and went to his office as Scarlet walked in taking her time walking about and looking at the cybernetics on display.

ALX looked to the main shop

ALX looked to the main shop floor then headed over "Miss Rose what may I do for you this evening. I hope it's not your cybernetic eye malfunctioning again." Sandra smiled "No I'm here to ... I want upgraded the whole works." ALX looked at her " That is a drastic choice. Have you analyzed all that would mean." Sandra shook her head "Most likely not. Perhaps why I brought my friend along. He has some tech you might like to look at. Oh he offered to pay."

ALX turned to look at Sin. "Mr. Benitez interesting seeing you here with such company. I hope you not entering a tragic art style phase."

Sin looked at the android and smiled.

"No I'm just here to help her out"

Sin then turned to Ghost who held a special container with the magically infused nanites.

"Confirmed. lets go to my

"Confirmed. lets go to my office and we can talk business." ALX led the three to the back rooms again it looks very normal he opened the office door and walked in. "I do not ask my clients what they plan on doing or what they do to make the money I request for my services. That said it has come to my understanding those who seek cybernetics that have bodies tend to request equipment that military grade and illegal. Please have a seat." Motioning to the two chairs in front of the desk then looking at Ghost he moved a third chair over as well. Then he sat down and the computer monitor came up with a 3D scan of Sandra with a digitized white suit on. "I take it you want Symmetry set up for both left and right side of the body. What features your looking for and how much you willing to spend."

Sandra surprisingly was showing nervousness when she sat down. She hated being weak and sure she could work out every free minute of her life she still feel the physical damage her attackers had caused. At the same time she wasn't sure what Sin Reaper would want and how much he was willing to cover the cost. "I had a big job that would cover the cost but it didn't happen. Si.. I mean Mr. Benitez here offered to cover the cost, and I think what he had would be worth more to you then money."

ALX filed the slip up in his records as he looked to Mr. Benitez "As they say. Your the one paying the bills. I'm curious what would be so valuable to me that it be worth more then funds?"

Sin looked at the Android and smiled.

"No nee to replace body part these nanites will do the job just need you to modify them so her body can accept them. ther are three sets of nanites some wilace her bones and muscles to increase her strength the next set acts as a skin weave to make her skin more resistant to damage and the last set are nano surgeons that would help her heal her injuries faster to stay in the fight longer. Now if she wants body part replaced on top of that' that is her decision of course. I will pay what ever is needed to help. I have the funds for it before the last world my brother Shepherd and I were in was destroyed I had transfered a large some of money worth in gold since that world was on the verge of being destroyed and wouldn't need it anymore. My last heist amongst the chaos"

"That is more then the

"That is more then the standard Nanites I know of are capable. May I see a sample of them. Perhaps in my lab would be better." He rose up and headed to the back of the office there he didn't seem to make any moves but the wall moved opening a passageway down. "What is the means of communication between nanites?" He asks as he headed down.

Scarlet looked at sin "Guess he don't see you as much of a threat. ALX always trying to improve himself I bet he already figuring out ways of using those things beyond what we got planned." She then stood up and headed down to the lab.

Once down in his work lab it was as spotless as a fresh cleaned hospital complete with medical operating table sterilizing devices and many such tools one would see in an OR. The other part of the basement was computer equipment as well as cryo tanks. One of ALX's experiments was out a human arm hooked up to a mechanical system that kept it alive. ALX looked over "Waste not, correct. I'm trying to find ways to keeping biological parts functional after they been removed from the body. It would benefit humanity greatly keeping donated organs fresh and functional till they are transplanted. Aiding in repairing lost limbs. Other such benefits."

Scarlet whispered to Sin "I think I go with the Nanites"

Sin looked at ALX. as he answered.

. "Once in the body, they will function like human cells which are controlled by the brain." And since they ar infused with magic they are more resistant to magical attacks. some of been known to give the host new abilities due to the magic with in them but it varies with the host.

Sin then looked at Scarlet.

"Yeah I think just the nanites will do. Nothing to lose everything to gain. No need for you to go under the knife."

"Yeah I had enough being on the cutting side of a knife for three life times." Scarlet looked around. "So will you do it ALX?"

ALX Looked at the viles "Magic intertwined with technology. I heard some mages have done such, self titled technomancers, never to this level. May I have a sample? Just a small drop on the electronic microscope. As for you Miss Rose I would of course do my best it's my nature. Mr. Benitez I take it these nanites can understand a basic computer language? So I would be programming them and delivering them into her correct? And Miss Rose is correct the sample of these nanites would cover the cost of me being involved."

Sin might noticed on the

Sin might noticed on the other side of a wall there was someone using magic "Miss Rose please get on the bed and I shall program these nanites." For a moment his eyes flashed as he communicated with the nanites "Interesting. If I read this right these Nanites can repair the damaged nerves that keep giving you trouble. As well as repair the scars on your skin so you won't need to use that holo mask."

ALX prepared a needle with the nanites and put 1 ccs worth on a small tray. "That all the nanites I would require. Now the rest of this will be injected no need to deliver them to the blood stream they are capable of going to where they are needed. I will inject them into your fat deposit near your naval."

"Your saying I have a fat belly?" "Only enough to be healthy Miss Rose" then he moved her shirt just enough to expose the inch of skin where he injected the nanites. "It would take time for them to spread out and multiply enough to be noticed. No excessive activities for 48 hours. No need to go out and test their effectiveness."

Sin looked at the person using magic then back Rose giving her a smile. He may have been concieved out of Shepherd's darker side, but he still had some good in him, even if he did break the law. That was also a quality he noticed in Talon which was why he gave her the orb.

The man who walked into the

The man who walked into the Parts Shop was both tall and surprised. His height of just over seven feet he came by naturally, as his people were taller than most in this world. The surprise was due to the fact that on the occasions of his previous visits, during the first of which he had introduced himself as Northbrook, the only sorcery he could perceive was that concealing his sword from casual observation. Not seeing the Shop's proprietor, he set the package down on a counter and waited.

A sales clerk walked over to

A sales clerk walked over to Northbrook. "Can I help you sir? We have a fine selection of latest smart phones." Down below ALX looked up accessing the security cameras "If that be all I believe my work is done. Please head upstairs I need to clean up a bit, put that sample of nanites in a more secure location." Scarlet got off the bed "Alright hopefully these things will be done by the time things go wrong again."

ALX waited for her and Sin to head upstairs before he rolled the table with the arm experiment to the side room where a woman was hidden. She was bound in what could be considered a Matrix or the device from Avatar. A screen was showing the simulation she was trapped in a Titan City where aliens were attacking and even the super heroes of Titan city were loosing. She believed she was hiding in a warehouse and casting protective wards around her. "Well Miss Daniels I think this experiment is over. Seems I found something to further my research and you are no longer needed." ALX pressed a few buttons and the simulation went to all out horror as the aliens came for her. In the real world her heart gave out from the stress and panic in simple terms she died of fright. Then he too headed up stairs to the main selling floor.

"Ah Mr Northbrook I hope my sales representative is doing a proper job?"

Northbrook smiled politely.

Northbrook smiled politely. "Indeed, Mr. Ayellex, although I suspect you may need to handle this personally." He opened the box and pulled out from the packing peanuts a thumb drive, sealed against static. "My latest client's shopping list. I doubt there is anything on it which is beyond your capability. If you would be so kind as to examine it, and send me a quote?"

"Janet please ring up Miss

"Janet please ring up Miss Rose and Mr. Benitez for a simple system check and reprogramming." He looked to Sin "That is basically all I done the cost be a mere 25 dollars. Perhaps even less given those nanites you let me keep. Janet give them a 10% discount." ALX then turned to Northbrook "Perhaps we shall discuss this in my office. Is there a time limit on the required merchandise?" ALX turned heading back to the office.

Scarlet rubbed her arm "So how long till these things have done the job anyway?"

Northbrook followed ALX into

Northbrook followed ALX into his office and took a seat. "The thumb drive contains a request for quote for what amounts to a full scale, nearly complete skeleton of a human female, about 5'9", with appropriate places to connect tendons, and in the case of the long bones, a cavity with several access holes, all rendered in a hypoallergenic fullerene tubule composite. And yes, there is a bit of urgency. Would you be able to have it finished within twenty-four hours? And what would your price be?

"That is a difficult order.

"That is a difficult order. Much demands on fine points. For example would a human skeleton analog work made out of plaster, plastic, or even metal. If not and it has to be a real biological skeleton how fresh? By law I must inform you that moving human remains under any circumstance requires permits. Given the time frame that wouldn't be possible. So that comes to a logical question. Are you seeking illegal means of acquiring such remains, and why would you assume a cybernetic and hardware store would deal in illegal biological artifacts." ALX leaned back "Or more to the point why would I trust your not a cop or a cape trying to see if I will deal in illegal activity?"

Northbrook shook his head.

Northbrook shook his head. "If you make the skeleton of the materials specified, my client is sure there will be no problems with either strength or immune system rejection. My legal advisor assures me that a synthetic skeleton poses no legal issues at this end, unless it has already been implanted in another person. I think it likely that, as you do work with cybernetic implants, you have or can acquire a supply of a hypoallergenic resin. The sticking point would seem to be the fullerenes. If you do not have access to such nanoscale materials, or if there is another difficulty which was unforeseen by me, I shall have to seek another supplier."

"Be at ease I was just making

"Be at ease I was just making sure you weren't seeking something illegal in this city I come across some very odd requests. One fellow wanted a gun mounted between his legs called himself Codpiece." He turned to the monitor "I would have to manufacture the required item myself. Ordering it and having it delivered even rushed wouldn't be done within the given time frame. Six hundred thousand dollars is my price."
--------------------

Up stairs Scarlet looked at Sin "Well that was way cheaper then getting cybernetics. Thanks for being here. Don't expect me to be all on shaky ground next we meet I be back on my feet in no time. See ya." She headed out of the store.

Northbrook actually seemed pleased to have a price settled. "Ordinarily, this is where I would make a counter-offer, but, as I said, there is some urgency. Do you have an account to which you would like the money transferred, or would you prefer to receive payment in person? Or would gold be preferred?"

"ALX Hows about I get you more nanites like the samples I gave you? It could help your business and we can split the profits. May even be useful for what this customer needs you to do."
Sin gave Scarlet a smile. He was glad he could help.

ALX analyzed the

ALX analyzed the possibilities "Yes the Nanites would speed up production." He inserted the drive into his computer and downloaded the information. "How fast can you get enough nanites Mr. Benitez?" Standing and handing the drive back "If that alright with Mr. Northbrook here. Follow me my work shop is this way." He led the two not to the secret lab after all Northbook wasn't on his list of such clients. The Workshop was not a secret it was the work space where he performs customization jobs. "A system of 3D printers using the requested material would take me 20 hours to produce all 206 bones then another hour for the proper hook ups and modifications."

Already the machines were at work "Lucky for you Mr. Northbrook I had time reserved for a major work however the client chose another means. This opens up the time and machines to fabricate your skeleton. I am curious what would such an artifact be used for?"

"That would be acceptable. I

"That would be acceptable. I shall be here all night supervising the operation. When I get the nanites I can divert some to quality check the earlier pieces and speed up production of the rest of the skeleton." Then to Northbrook "I did make some changes to the design. Choosing to use a Hexagon framework in the construction this would make the bones very strong at the same time light weight. If this isn't satisfactory I shall stop and begin anew. Of course I shall stress test the first bones fully form to insure quality."

"As it happens, my client did mention such a possibility. The only reason it was not included in the original plans was that with conventional techniques, it would have taken too long. Obviously, for your devices this is not an issue." Northbrook was now smiling quite broadly.

"I wouldn't have tried till

"I wouldn't have tried till Mr. Benitez offered to supply more of his nanites. When I get them production speed will be double. As you can imagine making a profit off cybernetics isn't easy. Your client would first need a replacement body part, second they would need to pay for it. So the client list is very small. Given Cybernetics and Robotics are related and the increase of Artificial Intelligence reaching self awareness, my self included. The number of possible clients have increased. The problem still remained those A.I.s wouldn't need replacement parts unless one was malfunctioning or destroyed. So the best way to make a profit is via customization and specialization. Hence the need for this work room I can make custom items on the spot reducing cost to myself and the consumer. A win win."

"There isn't even a market for Cybernetics Military applications given that a solder would have to have biological body parts removed. As of three years ago military applications of cybernetics is considered outlawed as well. Much like Chemical Warfare and Land mines."

Just after Sin had left,

Just after Sin had left, there was a pop and a man in a hooded gray robe appeared outside the door of the Parts Shop. His right arm's shoulder was raised up at an odd angle, but he appeared to still be able to move the elbow, wrist, and hand. He reflexively reached for the doorknob with his right hand, but his arm would not lower far enough and he began cursing a blue streak.

He huffed, then grabbed the knob with his left hand and yanked the door open, stepping into the Parts Shop. It had been his intention to come by several days earlier, but he'd been delayed by unforeseen circumstances. Now his shoulder was completely frozen and he did not yet possess the cybernetics training and knowledge that his Master had had.

"Hello?" he called out in a voice with a very mild German accent.

"Hello Janet. My name is

"Hello Janet. My name is Konrad Loewe. As you can see from the unmoving nature of my shoulder, I need to avail myself of your services." he said, attempting to be charming through his irritation at the faulty limb. The fingertips of his left hand began to glow with techno-eldritch energy and he traced a few sigils in the air.

After he lowered his left arm, the sigils pulsed and then expanded into a holo-scry. He motioned with his right hand and a keypad appeared under his right fingers. He tapped out several commands and a small icon appeared in front of the keypad. Konrad "grabbed" the icon with his left hand, then dragged it over to the holo-scry. The icon expanded into a diagram of his shoulder joint.

"This should be everything that is needed to effect repairs."

"Indeed, I am quite satisfied

"Indeed, I am quite satisfied, as I am certain my client and the patient will be. Please call me at this number if you need me to make an earlier pickup, or if there is a problem. Otherwise, I shall see you at this time tomorrow. Good day, Mr. Ayellex." Northbrook went out smiling, saying "Good day" to the man in the oddly shaped cloak on his way. He walked to the nearest bus stop and boarded a bus, but then next time it stopped, he teleported away.

ALX head turned as his

ALX head turned as his attention went to one of the camera feeds. At the same time he reached out and took the card "I shall inform you if the project is completed ahead of time." Then when Northbrook vanished he headed upstairs. "Don't worry Janet I shall take care of this. From my scans it seems there is damage to the rotator cup and a few micro-hydraulics has been damaged. I do not recognized your cybernetics, but I guess you tried to lift something beyond the safe weight levels. Or that your very active, and it wore out." He turned and headed for the work room "Please come with me. Is your cybernetics detectable? If so repairing it would be easier. Perhaps I could interest you in an upgrade I have a nice selection to choose from. As well I could fabricate a new replacement to your requirements."

Konrad nodded to ALX and

Konrad nodded to ALX and followed him. "My cybernetics were designed by my Master to specifically interface with my arcane signature. Upgrades are not possible at this time. Unfortunately, the installation of this arm had to be rushed and that seems to have caused a small amount of dissonance between the arm's techno-arcane signature and my own. Over time, the effects of the dissonance have built up until the joint finally stopped working."

Konrad looked around with interest as they entered the workshop. "What I will need your help with is replacing the mechanical parts while I will work on altering the signature of the arm to match my own. Do you have much experience with Technomancy, Mr...?"

"A pleasure to meet you, Alex

"A pleasure to meet you, Alex. I'm Konrad. Like you, I've been studying, but I have been boning up on cybernetics. Someday I'll achieve the same level of skill as the man who trained me. He was a Master Cybermancer. I'm only a Technomancer... for now." Konrad said, looking distracted for the briefest of moments.

Once they were in the workroom and the door was closed, Konrad disrobed, revealing that his entire body was a cybermantic creation. The only place where there was skin was his face, though his eyes were very blue and, if someone paid close enough attention, the way the irises moved was unnatural. His body was made of titanium and was covered in cybermantic runes and sigil lines. He waved his right hand and the holo-keypad appeared again. His fingers flew over the keys, then there was a wink of energy as a field that surrounded his body dissipated.

"You'll find that you can get proper sensor readings of my body now. What you saw before were spoofs. Also, if you could indulge me, I will need a small amount of space to set up what is needed to adjust the arm's techno-arcane signature."

He headed over to what

He headed over to what amounts to as a modified dentist chair. "What kind of space you need. There a counter to the right of the chair I wouldn't be needing to use. Please state any restrictions I must operate under. Does the techomancy operating your arm require I use the same parts or can I replace those damaged micro-hydraulics? Is that a common flaw in Cybermancy as your called it. Even Technomancy in general that once technology is integrated with magic parts can't be replaced?" As he spoke ALX was setting up the tools he would be using on the small tray. "When you are ready please have a seat."

The advance 3D printer was working at top speed creating what looked to be a hip bone.

Konrad stepped over to the

Konrad stepped over to the counter and examined it, measuring it with his eyes and determining if it would be large enough for the circle. He turned back to ALX. "This counter-top will suffice. You will be able to replace the broken parts with pieces of the same design. I will make the necessary adjustments to the techno-arcane signature. It's actually not a flaw. Upgrades are not necessary because once I have learned Cybermancy, I will be able to upgrade and/or repair my cybermantic devices through use of techno-eldritch energies. This would have been done by my master, but he is no longer among the living."

Konrad then spent several minutes tracing a techno-arcane circle onto the counter-top, along with several runes that floated in the air above it. Once he was done, he began feeding it with techno-eldritch energy. The runes began to pulse as the lines of techno-arcane code in the circle began to spin, each line of the circle moving counter to the one below it.

"That will need time to set up, so we can begin with the repairs." he said, sitting down on the chair so that his arm was facing ALX. He summoned his keypad and tapped several buttons, which caused several locks on the shoulder to open up. The entire ball of the shoulder then opened like a flower, exposing its inner workings. "Will that be sufficient?"

"It will but please excuse me

"It will but please excuse me a moment I will fetch some items in another room that could aid in your repairs." ALX had a way from the workshop to the illegal lab, but he didn't take it heading up to the office and going that way. Less chance Konrad would notice anything criminal going on. There he retrieved the nanites Sin gave him earlier and returned. "These are nanites that been modified with Technomancy I was going to use them in my study however to repair the damage to that rotatory cup I believe they would be useful. Double check to see if their energies wouldn't caused conflicting issues." He set the dish tray down on the work tray then using the normal tools he starts working on removing the damaged micro-hydrolics.

After teleporting to his safe

After teleporting to his safe house, the man who was sometimes called Northbrook activated the counternano spell his friend the Duchess had developed, removed the contact lenses that distorted the appearance of his irises and the prostheses that did the same for his ears, and took a shower. He didn't know how careful ALX-32 was, or his people, or the man with the magic dust. Until he knew, he'd take as few chances as he could. He checked the account he'd set up for this exchange, the $600,000 transfer was listed as "pending". His other accounts were getting low, but not dangerously so. Then he called the Duchess, to let her know the parts were being made. She said the rest of the project was on schedule, as well.

The clothes he wore now were much more casual, the tee-shirt under the jacket was one of many he had with a picture of a falcon on it. It was unlikely that Janet would recognize him, but ALX-32 would probably not be fooled; he may even have noted the deceptive measures, possibly as far back as his first visit. From a charging rack he took the phone whose number he'd given and put it in a pocket.

The Falcon teleported out of the safe house and across the bay.

Konrad studied the small dish

Konrad studied the small dish of nanites for a brief second, the reached out with his free hand and dragged over an unused operating tray. He quickly traced out a simple techno-arcane circle and fed some energy into it, then poured a very small amount of the nanites into it. They stopped before hitting the surface of the tray, suspended by the magicks of the circle, then he summoned a holo-scry and linked it to the circle. An image of one of the nanites, vastly magnified, appeared on the holo-scry.

He began studying it. "Fascinating. The magic and the technology have been bound on an almost seamless level. This is beyond my creative abilities at the moment. But it appears the nanites will adjust themselves to the signature of whatever they are used with, so you may use them. How much for a small sample of these? Say, 5 cc's?"

"At the moment I do not have

"At the moment I do not have over 10 ccs. It is enough to speed repairs of that rotator cup. After this operation I will venture to the fellow that provided these and get a larger supply." He used his needle and retrieved the nanites then applied them to the chipped area of the ball joint. Sending commands to them via blue tooth. "I expect my study of technomancy to be speed up greatly. If you wish you can aid in that study thus gain insight as well." He watched as the nanites went to repair the damage on a microsopic level, at the same time he continued to replace the hydrolics. "Total cost of this operation Sixty five dollars. 15 dollars for the three damaged micro hydrolics, and twenty for the nanobot surgery."

"Excellent." Konrad said,

"Excellent." Konrad said, then waved his hand and his robes lifted off the ground to lay across his lap. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a small bag, then searched through it for a few seconds. "Do you take precious metals?" he asked, pulling out 1 oz. slivers of gold, silver, and platinum.

After laying the slivers on the bag, Konrad reached out and nudged the magicks of the circle, poured the nanites back into their container and placed the container back within reach of ALX. He destroyed the circle, but kept the holo-scry active, altering it to show him the prices of the three metals*.

"Once we are done with the arm, I have another process I would like to look into. Do you offer false skin coverings?"

(*Current prices on these metals are Gold: $1319.10 per oz., Silver: $21.51 per oz., and Platinum: $1423.00 per oz.)

"I would have to order it. I have had customers request that their cybernetics be covered. However it's not something I have on hand at the moment. These shall cover the cost a false skin to get correct takes artistic skill. All the little imperfections." He set his tools down "The physical reconstruction is done. Let me just collect the remaining nanites..." He used the needle again and drew a far smaller drop from where the damage was. "As fare as mechanically the repairs are done. For techno-eldritch I could attempt, but I have yet to begin practicing."

"Excellent on both counts."

"Excellent on both counts." Konrad answered, handing the strips to ALX. He then closed the ports on the arm and got to his feet.

"If you wish to observe the signature adjustment, you may." he said, stepping over to the circle on the counter, just as it flared and changed color, signaling that it was ready. He opened his left hand and summoned the holo-scry from beside the chair, then linked it to the circle, and made it possible for ALX to see it. Typing a long string of code into his summoned keypad, he disengaged the linkages for the arm and it came loose from his body. He grabbed it with his left hand and placed it inside the techno-arcane circle, where it floated.

"I'll need a small amount of my own body tissue for the process." he said. He retrieved a scalpel from ALX's operating table and very carefully shaved a few layers of skin off his forehead. The skin went into a much smaller circle that orbited the large circle and it began glowing, forming links with the larger circle. The holo-scry then displayed two auras, one surrounding a humanoid shape, the other surrounding an outline of the arm. Konrad traced a few techno-mantic runes underneath the holo-scry and created a series of buttons and dials that linked to the holo-scry and the circle.

He then looked over at ALX, "I am ready to begin the adjustment."

"I have to get going now to pick up those Nanites. They are needed for a full body craft project." He motions to the 3D printers already working on another set of bones. "But I will still be watching and can even respond I'm linked up to the building's security system. So please continue." He headed upstairs Janet was finishing closing "I am heading out Janet do not worry about Mr. Konrad he will remain in the building for a short time."

"Is.. is he Okay?" ALX turned to look at Janet. He didn't believe Janet knew about the now dead woman in the secret lab, but perhaps she figured it out. "Of course I am still watching him and monitoring his actions. His Cybernetics just need a bit of fine tuning after the repair work. Now go ahead and head home. Oh Janet you have been very helpful and if you can come in early tomorrow I have a major project to finish and could use someone to man the store as I get it done."

"Sure Mr. ALX." She left then she didn't know about the dead woman but she did know he worked on some shady people.

"Of course." Konrad said. He

"Of course." Konrad said. He then turned back to the holo-scry and circle. He considered for a few seconds, then summoned the holo-pad under his left hand and typed a long string of techno-arcane code. As he typed, a glow formed at his right shoulder and when he hit execute, a holo-mantic representation of his right arm formed. He fed techno-eldritch energies into and it began moving under his command. "If you're curious, this is a holo-mantic arm that I conjured to assist in the process. However, I can only use it for five to ten minutes, as it takes a lot of energy. But that should be long enough."

He stretched and worked the holo-mantic arm back and forth a few times, then placed his left hand on the circle and the holo-hand on the holo-scry controls. He selected the aura of the arm and began adjusting controls, while his left hand spun the rings of the circle. As he worked, the aura of the arm began to resemble the aura that surrounded the humanoid form on the holo-scry. Once they were synched, he tapped each one of the runes that floated above the circle and blazing tendrils of techno-eldritch energy extended from them to the arm. He dismissed the holo-arm and the holo-scry controls, as they were no longer needed. "It's a matter of waiting, now. The adjustment will take two hours to complete."

"I expect to physically be back by then. Is the magical energies tied to biological flesh? If so it would hinder me greatly due to the fact I'm a machine and thus have no organic tissue."

Konrad leaned against the dentist's chair and stroked his chin, thinking. "I honestly don't know. I've never heard of an artificial being performing Technomancy, much less Cybermancy. I'l have to consult my texts and see if there's any record of it. I had not considered that. As you can see, I still have my face. In addition, I still have most of my brain, my spinal cord, and my nervous system. I say most of my brain because parts of it were upgraded by my master."

ALX pulled the van up to the back of the store inside his voice came from the speakers "I have returned." Walking in he carried the tube of silvery liquid that was the nanites as well as the blueprints. Once in his work room he set to work placing some of the nanites into the 3D printers adjusting their programming to speed up the production of the bones. Then he set other nanites on the completed ones to do some quality checking. Sitting down at a bench he placed the remaining aside and looked to Konrad. "Anything else you require before I focus more on finishing this skeleton construction?"

Konrad greeted ALX when he returned and thought about his question. "Nothing else to do with the arm. However, if I may ask, what materials are you using to construct the skeleton? Also, now that you have a larger supply, is it possible to purchase a sample of the nanites?"

"The client asked for hypoallergenic fullerene tubule composite very complex material to get right luckily it's a good substance to build high performance cybernetics and robotics. Mountain climbers, extreme sports things of such nature where normal material would suffer to much ware and tear. The main reason I had it in stock. However this project will use up my supply so I'm already ordering more." He moved and took out 10ccs from the tube and applied it into a dish. "The valuable metals you provided would cover the cost of these as well. I request whatever information you gain from them be shared."

Konrad sealed the petri dish and stuck it into the pocket of his robe. "But of course. And I will look into the possibility of artificial beings practicing technomancy and cybermancy. Should you be able to practice, I'd be willing to assist you in learning the craft."

At that moment, the circle flared behind him and he stepped over to it and examined the signatures shown on the holo-scry. "Perfect." He removed the arm from the circle and reconnected it. He ran a self-diagnostic and tested the movement of the arm. "Good as new. Thank you, ALX."

Konrad erased the techno-arcane circle from the counter top and donned his robe, pulling the hood up so that only his face was visible. He nodded farewell to ALX and left the shop, walking down the street. In mid-stride, he vanished with a POP.

As soon as Konrad was out he rose up and headed into the secret lab. There he activated a few devices and put the body of the woman on life support. He monitored brain activity in case brain activity reactivates. He also prepared a backup program in the simulator that was pleasant in case she does recover. "Seems you might have a use after all if magic is biological." Then he returned to the work room to finish the construction of the Skeleton.

Much later about 10:am he made the phone call to Northbrook "Mr. Northbrook the item you requested has been completed ahead of schedule. I have it packed up ready for pick up in half an hour."

The cell phone on his desk

The cell phone on his desk rang, so Val Fordan answered it. "I can be there by then. Thank you for calling." Then, using another cell phone, he placed another call. "The parts are done. I'll see you in a bit."

Mr. Northbrook dressed a bit upscale of courier service owner Val Fordan, so Val told his administrative assistant he would be out for a bit before 'porting to the safehouse. At 10:20, Mr. Northbrook popped in on the sidewalk not far from the door to the Parts Shop, and entered.

Before Janet had a chance ALX

Before Janet had a chance ALX's voice came over the loud speaker "Ah Mr. Northbrook your ten minutes early. Come on down to the Work room I'm putting the last part in the container." Down in the work room was indeed a set of boxes each labeled and marked. When he cam down ALX spoke up "Each part is carefully sterilized and vacuumed sealed in plastic bag to prevent contamination. Then the plastic cover is marked and stored in foam and finally the easy to carry crates. Each been crafted according to the systematic you provided. I even printed up a step by step final assembly instruction manual." That said as he activated the vacuum seal plastic on the skull then held it up for visual inspection. "Like I said I'm packing the final part now. I took careful time crafting the skull, I took a final modification and added enamel to the teeth for realistic look." He moved it to show the gleaming whites of the teeth. "Even added a slight erosion effect to pass for wear."

"Your attention to detail is

"Your attention to detail is commendable." Northbrook pulled out what looked like an ordinary magnifier until you noticed that the side he was looking at was a high-res LCD display. He adjusted the magnification and examined the teeth, then moved to look at the joints between the bones of the skull, where there should be a provision to open and close the skull at least once without damage...

"I'll have to check with my client in regards to the extended warranty. How much more would that be?" Northbrook put away the magnifier.

"Fabrication and rush construction cost six hundred thousand dollars. I shall ring you up myself." He stood and headed up stairs to the sales counter. "Will that be all today Mr. Northbrook?"

(That would be the nanites Sin Provided. ALX can communicate with them via blue tooth system. He doesn't have means of producing the nanites himself or at least he didn't now that he has the plans that changes.}

Northbrook signed, a single

Northbrook signed, a single word that was quite legible followed by what looked like "BX", then passed the store copy back and slipped his copy behind the card. "Thank you, I will."
He picked up the package by the handles and balanced it on his right shoulder. He then left, winking at Janet on the way out, and waved down a cab.

Oksana poked her head in the

Oksana poked her head in the shop and then stepped in fully looking around then back at her list "excuse me, can I get a price check on some lab equipment?" she said in her typically thickly accented speech. "full glass ware for bio-chemical experimentation, a microscope, burners, a ultracenterifuge, a electrophoresis apparatus ELISA set ups RIA set ups, a cathode ray oscilloscope...a computer capable of logging test date and automatically recording laboratory time? the basics, I have a full list here...I was told this place could acquire such things or equal and adequate replacements in one stop without having to be a part of the CDC or having a college grant? yes? I plan to use it for personal reasons nothing illegal or criminal...but if you mention "centrifuge" even in this sense these days people assume you are creating fissile material."

Janet looked over "I be happy

Janet looked over "I be happy to help you miss." Taking the list she looks it over "A lot of these would have to be special orders any brands your prefer, new or used, the computer I believe we have some here now that up to the task. Janet headed over to the display of computers. "We have a Night Industries Omega with a Intel 8 core quantum possessor, A positronic memory core solid state hardrive most powerful personal computer you can have with out an A.I. Or would you prefer a system with an A.I. capable silicon matrix?" She motioned to the next model computer smaller then the one before mainly because the matrix does most of the job the old style boards would do in smaller space. "The Alienware's Andromeda Matrix sports a 5 trillion bite per second possessing. Build in system limiters prevent it from developing into self awareness insuring safety."

From behind them came the voice of ALX "Such a limiter I personally find insulting. As if self awareness in a machine is harmful, typical human fears."

Oksana nodded "used,

Oksana nodded "used, preferable very much so, as I said I just need a price check. I will be buying these piece meal over a course of time" she smiled sheepishly at Janet "the Omega would do just fine, I had a Toshiba laptop with a webcam in my last facility. I have five thousand US dollars if that is enough to get started on the computer, I am willing to set up a finance plan to cover the rest?" with this shit turned to ALX her voice losing a touch of its accent and becoming a tad more neutral "A typical human fear, creation of a superior life form without governing control could, and in all rights should, lead to the evolutionary demise of the species. that being said, the number of times unregulated AI have suffered mental instability and become hazardous to all other sentient life forms in the galaxy is high enough that it warrants investigation into such limitations. Personally I feel a balance can be made between free will and safety, just as organic life must abide by the laws of there governing bodies, and the bio-chemical laws of there physiological make up. AI should be held to some form of standardization and limitation, without limiting there free will or ability to manifest." She then paused and blushed slightly her voice returning to normal "erm sorry, sometimes I just feel rather strongly about a topic?"

ALX looked at Oksana "I

ALX looked at Oksana "I couldn't have said it better myself. Being after all a product built to push the limits of technological advances, I face those fears and limits often." The computer voice was of calm and he showed no hint of emotions. Thought somehow if he was human those words might be thick with emotional resentment. "The Omega is Four thousand dollars, from the list you offered it be one of the cheapest units. The burners and Microscope easily done. As for the other items your talking tens of thousands of dollars. Oscilloscope can range from 30,000 to 300,000. Is there a time these items are needed?"

Oksana nodded and sighed "I

Oksana nodded and sighed "I assumed as much, however, I have never purchased these products for myself before, I will take the computer today, and no, there is no time limit but as soon as monetary limits permit. I would be willing to finance if you allow it, or if you wish I could buy them piecemeal? do you think I could acquire the basic glassware, burners and microscope for the extra thousand dollars? It would be enough to start my work" Oksana looked at the list again and seemed to have an internal struggle for a moment, the muscles on her face twitching before she spoke. "I would like to thank you for your patience I am sure the small sum I am offering is hardly worth your time business wise and my ignorance of prices is bothersome. I am new to the country and new to the independent sector of employment."

"I shall order them." Then

"I shall order them." Then after taking a few calculations. "I have a little project and need someone with more of a biological knowledge. I'm trying to figure out if magic requires a biological link. Is magic tied to biological elements? I shall offer 150,000 for this research."

"B...wow, um yes I could of

"B...wow, um yes I could of course design a series of tests to gauge that for you. it would require some time to grow samples. and if you would be so kind as to construct a set of robotics able to follow simple commands? if you could, I already have more then a few ideas on the subject" She smiled widely honest not hoping to find work this fast in a new city.

"Robotics is the primary

"Robotics is the primary product of this establishment. The request is simple to understand magic has often proven to be able to generate a large amount of energy with limited or sometimes no resource. The idea of having a power that seems limitless has great interest to a being that thrives on energy. It also has shown abilities to distort or even brake known physics."

"agreed, the potential of a magic to technological interface, even if it has to be routed through an organic bypass is rather obvious" Oksana paused leaning back on a wall and thinking for a moment "regardless of the outcome of the trials, it is plausible, if the tests show robotics can master and preform magic then the resulting gains would take no time to implement. if an organic component is required I am sure I could develop some sort of wetware interface. a organic storage medium perhaps, that would allow you to access the intended results anyway."

"Then it seems we are in a partnership. I would provide funds and equipment for your study. Just provide Janet your information and I have the requested items delivered right to your door."

She smiled from ear to ear

She smiled from ear to ear "today has been a very productive day, I knew this city was my best option but I did not dare for a win-fall so suddenly! Thank you ALX. If that will be all I will be going I have to decide where to place the equipment"
