There were a lot of things that those who knew Phillip Coulson either didn't understand or wouldn't understand when it came to his job and the things that he was willing to do to achieve his mission objective. The problem was that some of the things that he needed to get the orbital operational were in secure locations that he used to be able to get access to when SHIELD was a part of the Government but now were proving to be difficult. Even his allies, the few that he had were unable to get him access and so he was having to look at other other options, he had considered sending John in but as much as he liked him, John was by his very nature a solder and tended to deal with situations with a head-on, tactical manner which made him unsuited for missions that required a certain degree of subtlety. SHIELD used to have specialists that you would activate when you had need for someone to get into places where they did not belong to secure items that they were not entitled to. They had the training and more importantly the experience and attitude to do what needed to be done without asking questions and as much as he appreciated the people they had now, most of them came from the new SHIELD tended to ask too many questions. Kate would have been perfect for this mission but with her just returning from maternity leave so he wasn't willing to risk her until she was missions qualified but she would have been able to get the job done and secure him the items that he needed, so he needed to outsource.

The people that Coulson dealt with were people that had the right connections and so he started to put out feelers looking for a Professional who had a solid reputation but the skill set he needed. The places he was going to send this person to were places where if they were caught there wouldn't be a trial or any sort of due process, more than likely they would be shot and buried in some plot of earth in some lonely, out of the way place never to be seen again. Security had become something of a hot-button issue for Governments with the advent of Metahumans and the strike on Area 51 had been something that had also spurred a quantum surge in security development by Private Entities and Government Agencies. Coulson still suspected that John was involved in that strike given some of the Intel that he had read over regarding there attack, the power needed to carry out a strike on Area 51 was beyond most people but John was definitely one of the few that could do it along with some logistical and intelligence support but he couldn't confirm it as there were a few other people on the list that could do this as well so he had to bide his time until he could be sure. With that in mind, he had put out the word that he was looking for a Professional, someone that would be able to get the job done and not be traced back to him or SHIELD which was of paramount importance and after a few days several people whose judgment he trusted gave him a number to call.

Coulson made sure that he was on a secured line that could not be traced, routed through their satellite system before he called, it rang twice before a deep voice answered "Yes?" "I am calling in regards to a contract I would like to engage your employer in, I was referred to you by Dimitri." There was a pause for a moment before the voice replied "This name is known to me, send the deposit to PO Box 761 Ocean Park, Santa Monica. We will contact you when we have the package." The phone clicked off and Coulson having been briefed by Dimitri Fedorov, Vice Chairman for Intelligence within the SVR of the Russian Federation and so he put 1 million dollars worth (US) of diamonds into a secured lockbox and then handed it to one of his Agents that was waiting as he had requested. It would be in the specified PO Box by the end of business today and so all he could do was wait and it took a couple of days but finally he got the call confirming the deposit and a location for him to meet with his employer. So far, everything was going according to what he had heard, that this Jericho Caine was a Professional who did things according to a code which wasn't something that you ran into every day but the real players were all like this. Coulson had dealt with this sort of situation before for SHIELD and so had some experience in this area, Fury had been known to outsource jobs too politically sensitive for SHIELD to be involved with and he had always been Fury's point man in negotiations like this.

Coulson drove up into the Hills of Los Angeles to the address that he had been sent after the deposit had been accepted, the Mansion was impressive but that was to be expected. Everyone had said that Jericho Caine had expensive tastes but that you still had to be careful, he was dangerously intelligent and if the rumors were true had some sort of enhanced gift though the details were murky. Arriving in his Lamborgini that he had rented as Lola was a little too well known in certain quarters and it wasn't every day that he got to drive a beast like this. Pulling up to the house, he got out and a valet took his keys to park the car and Coulson walked in, it seemed like a pretty typical house party with some amazingly beautiful women and men here alike but he wasn't here for the party. Grabbing a vodka martini, he took a sip as he looked around to see if he could spot someone who might be able to direct him to where he needed to go, he asked a couple of people and one of them pointed to a back room where there was a large individual standing. Thanking them, he walked over to the door and the large individual stopped him "No entry." Coulson had been told to expect this "My name is Phillip Coulson, I have an appointment." Mr Lock asked for some ID and after checking it carefully, opened the door where there was a high stake Poker game taking place, he walked over to Jericho who was busy in his game and leaning down he quietly said Phillip Coulson is here to see you Sir, he has a paid appointment."

Hail to the King
Has a nice ring to it



Cards. The source of some of his greatest successes and his greatest heartaches. He'd learned the game from his father, how to play the cards, how to manipulate other players. His father was so good... the best player he had ever watched play. The son had learned well and made sure not to repeat the mistakes of the father that ended up destroying their family so long ago. Sitting there in his designer suits, made of the finest silks, Jericho Caine had come a long way. His blue eyes searched the faces of each of his guests at the table, watching them, discovering their tells. He stood to make a lot of money tonight which was just fine with him.

Glancing at his hand again, he did catch his associate Mister Lock approaching him. He leaned down and Jericho tilted his head to the side to hear him say that he had a guest, or should he say, a paid appointment. With a nod, he turned his attention back to the table, tossing in another round of betting he turned his cards over. "Full house," he said, watching each man groan in frustration as they all threw their cards on the table. Child's play he thought to himself as he pulled the chips towards him and began making neat little stacks in front of him.

"We'll take a short break gentleman, I have a quick appointment to meet. Clear the room, Mister Lock," he said, leaning back in his chair, pushing his hat back out of his face and gesturing for Coulson to come sit at the table as his friend made a security sweep. As a professional, his business was to remain confidential. He made it a point of pride to provide the the safety and security that would keep his potential employer's coming back for more. It was just good business really.

The place was impressive to say the least, the people here and the wealth represented was something to consider but he did suspect that this was just a rented property as professionals like Mr. Caine tended to like to remain more mobile. That was just the lifestyle that was needed with this profession and property tended to be something that could tie people down and when you needed to pick up and move that wasn't an option at least in his opinion. There was too generic a feel to the place for it to be a home and so he was able to file that away for later use, his training meant that he was able to look for visual clues and to listen while he made his way to the back room, no one really seemed to talk about Mr. Caine but they all seemed to know him which was another interesting tidbit for him to acknowledge. There was very little in terms of intelligence on Jericho Caine, there were some observations and comments but nothing concrete for him to base an assessment on so he was going in with fresh eyes which wasn't something that happened to him much anymore. Typically with meets like this he had a full intelligence brief about the person, their organisation and he had an idea of how to turn the situation into his favour but this guy was so well hidden that he was going to have to head in with no pre-conceptions and take what he is given without any sort of forewarning.

From what he had learned, Jericho traveled with a personal bodyguard only known as Mr. Lock and from what he had heard the man was extremely capable and had a passion for assault shotguns. Judging from the size of the man, he wasn' someone that he would want to tangle with not without some sort of field artillery aimed at him but he seemed polite enough. Coulson waited while Mr. Lock went in to inform Jericho that he had a visitor, this was familiar territory for Coulson and so he wasn't too bothered about it and soon enough people started to file out some of whom looked a little relieved at being able to exit. Mr. Lock soon came out and pointed at the wall "Hands." Coulson nodded and waited as he was patted down expertly but he had come unarmed into this situation but he had John monitoring the situation from low orbit so if trouble happened he would have someone very capable on his side. Soon enough, Mr. Lock stepped back and opened the door "Sir, Phillip Coulson. He's clean." Phil stepped past and the door closed behind them but Mr. Lock came in as well and walked over to the bar where he started to prepare some drinks, the room would have been secured but Phil wasn't one to take chances with that. Jericho motioned for him to sit and Coulson did so, taking out a device and holding it up to Jericho "White Noise Generator, do you mind?" Assuming he didn't, he activated it and once it beeped showing that it was fully engaged he relaxed a little. Mr. Lock came over and placed a drink in front of Jericho and looked at Phil "Drink?" "Please, Scotch neat." Then he turned his attention to Jericho "You're a hard man to track down Mr. Caine, some people whose opinions I respect recommended you but I must say lovely home, the docorating is first rate. However, I am betting that you are a cut to the chase sort of person so I will get right to it. I am interested in hiring you on a long-term contract, multiple jobs at your usual pay rate with a bonus for each if you can get the item required without arousing any suspicion or raising any flags. The locations I have in mind are highly secure and possibly Governmental in nature, if this is a problem for you then we should end this meeting now, if not then I shall continue." Mr. Lock brought him his drink and he thanked him as he took a sip and waited to see what Jericho would say.

Jericho sat and watched as Mister Lock lead in his guest, a Phil Coulson. Mister Locke brought him a drink and offered another to the guest and Coulson himself set up a security device to make sure they couldn't be overheard electronically. Jericho nodded his consent as the man set up the advice and soon enough the appointment commenced as the man commented on how hard he'd been to track down. "I would hope so, I wouldn't be as successful as I am if just anyone could find me. I would imagine as a former SHIELD agent, you can understand that, maybe even admire it."

With what information he was given, it would seem that the former Agent was looking to hire him for a long term contract, multiple jobs that might include secure facilities of a governmental nature. "Your means of payment provided for the meeting admittedly had my curiosity, now you have my attention. If it's one thing I love more than money and gorgeous women, it's probably a challenge. By all means, continue." If he could complete this contract, he believed that he could be rolling in both money and women and that was something he could definitely get on board for.

Coulson undid his jacket as he sipped his drink, the guy was too much of a professional to do anything like drug his drink and he wanted to make sure that he expressed confidence in his host. It was good and he was pretty sure that he had a good idea what this was "Glenglassuagh 44 if I don't miss my guess, there were only 479 bottles made and when last I checked they were all the hands of collectors so this is appreciated believe me." There was a moment there that Coulson allowed himself to enjoy the smooth taste and the gentle pleasure in indulging himself even if it was just for a moment. Fury used to tell him that there were always times in an Agent's career where they would find these rare moments and when you were there enjoy them because they would come only infrequently and never without purpose. Now they were moving on into a critical phase and if they were going to get through to the other end of this mission with a success on the board then they were going to need the man sitting in front of him. The people that they were going to be stealing from weren't going to take this lightly which was why he couldn't use John though it would be much easier there was too high a price tag on that success.

Putting his glass down on the table, Coulson pulled out a small holoprojector and placed it on the table "Unlock file, Coulson 1150 enable." The device beeped and the air above it lit up as a hologram took shape "This is the Waylan Institute in Southern Indiana, your typical think tank group that has been focusing on cutting edge, biotechnology but it is actually a front of a combined research effort by HYDRA and several Governments in alien biological technology. One of the things that they are working on is a new type of bio organic gel that we need, it is being held in this secondary building here in the middle but it is highly secure. To get the release codes you will need to infiltrate the main building and gain entrance to the Head Scientists office a Dr. Drake Branson. The codes to the secured Research lab is in his private safe, it is locked with advanced biometrics and the codes change randomly on the device every 10 minutes and will only unlock to a 3 part sequence from Dr. Branson. A voice code, thumbprint and retinal scan. The device is very much like one of those old GPS Locators so once you get the code from him, you have 10 minutes to get from that location to the lab and enter the code before it resets. The building has heavy security, surveillance and it is rumored they employ metahumans for security. Once you secure the gel, put it in this container, it isn't dangerous as long as it is kept in this container. Your exit strategy is your own unless you need assistance from me and of course, your fee will be paid half up front and half upon completion of the task with a bonus if you can do this quietly." He sat back to see if Jericho had any questions for him before he confirmed the contract, a professional always made sure he had all the angles down before he took on a job and Jericho would be no different.

"Ah, a man that knows his spirits. Every second you're proving yourself more and more likeable, Mister Coulson." As the man set down a small technological device, it cast a holographic projection with the proper command phrase and Jericho leaned forward over the table to get a better look at the image. Coulson laid out for him the entirety of what he was wanting, Jericho was to break into the Waylan Institute and retrieve some sort of bio-organic gel that was being developed by a secret HYDRA think tank using Chitauri technology. It didn't surprise him, Chitauri toys were the stuff of legends to humanity.

The procedure of getting the package for his client was laid out, all that remained was for Jericho to get his ass to Indiana and figure out how he was going to break in, grab the package and get out. "All I need is the information, I'll get your package quietly, you can count on that. How do I contact you once I have your package?" he asked, wanting to know if he was going to drop it off at a secure dead drop or if Coulson was going to show up to collect his prize on his own. It made little difference to him, all he needed to know was were to hand off the goods and where to pick up his pay.

Coulson was impressed that Jericho just wanted the final details of the mission brief or perhaps he should be concerned, typically he found when he hired outside specialists that they were full of questions pertaining to the mission but that wasn't the case here. Making sure to keep his poker face, Coulson's mind was processing what he had in evidence here. One of the things that Fury had always respected about him was that he was a good judge of people which was why he was usually the point man for situations such as these and from what he had been able to glean from Jericho Caine he found him to be a man supremely confident in his skills. The way that he sat, the set of the shoulders and the lack of questioning all pointed at that and while they were assumptions they were ones based on years of experience and he found that those assumptions were rarely proven wrong. Jericho had a reputation for getting the job done and being loyal to a commission which in his field of work was damn rare, once he was on a job he couldn't be bought or bribed to change his mind, he had a contract and he would do everything that he could to make sure that contract was fulfilled. It was a Professionalism that went along with being the very best in your field, it was one that he could appreciate and in some parts even shared, Kate was the same way as was John which was why it was a character trait he was most familiar with, most of his friends shared it.

Expecting this part of the conversation, Coulson opened his jacket and carefully removed another device under the watchful eyes of Mr. Lock who hadn't moved since the conversation started and just kept his eyes on Coulson at all times. Placing it on the table, he pushed it over to Jericho "That is a secured SHIELD transmitter, simply activate it and it will send a one-time burst transmission on an encrypted frequency that will alert us to the fact that you have the item. I will have an Agent in place monitoring the situation who will then meet you here in these woods to the South for pick up. Once he has confirmed that the object has been delivered I will release the second half of your payment which speaking of." Coulson reached over and deactivated the White Noise Generator so that he could get a signal and once his phone became active he tapped a few buttons and it beeped in response "There, the first half of your fee has been transferred to your holding account as specified by Mr Lock here, I should also inform you that you have a limited time window to do this job. They will have completed their work in 48 hours and then the gel will be moved to an unknown location so I would get a move on because time is ticking away. If there are no other questions Mr Caine then I will wish you and your bodyguard here good luck."

Jericho was curious as the man before him revealed another gadget and he took care to pay close attention to what this new toy was. Jericho loved these kinds of toys, when SHIELD fell and their toys started finding their way on the black market he couldn't resist. He bought up a lot of gear and his skills as a thief grew even further than his own impressive abilities. This little device was a transmitter of some kind and this would appear to be his means of contacting his employer. "Another agent, hmm? Very interesting." That would mean that SHIELD was not as dead as one might think.

Jericho watched a bit more as Phil Coulson turned off his privacy device and put through the first half of his payment. "I do so enjoy getting paid," he said with a bit of a satisfied smirk. He was informed though, that he'd have a limited window to complete his task and he nodded his head in acknowledgement. "Mister Lock, call ahead and prepare my private plane. I have a date in Southern Indiana. First, see our new friend out. A pleasure to meet you, Mister Coulson," he said, reaching a hand out to shake his.

Now that their business had pretty much been concluded it was all going to rely on Jericho and how well he accomplishes the task that he has been paid for, it was going to get done that much was for certain but it would be the manner in which he does it that will see if he gets the other two missions. This one really will be the easiest out of the three missions that Coulson has lined up and if he can't handle this then the others would be far out of his league and so this was very much like an interview. Jericho had an impressive reputation with the people that had recommended him but Coulson was of the opinion that you had to see the person in action before you made any sort of judgment call in regards to a person's ability to carry out difficult tasks, he had felt the same way about John and had allowed results not potential dictate his opinion if the man that would become one of his best agents. Standing up, Coulson closed his jacket after he shook Jericho's hand firmly and looked over at the two men confident that he had made a worthwhile investment and glad that he had gotten John to make those diamonds, it was handy having something with that sort of strength profile on the team as it made situations like this easier to deal with. "If you need anything else Mr. Lock here has my details and so he can contact me other than that I look forward to a positive working relationship and I hope to hear good news within the next two days."

Mr. Lock escorted Coulson out making sure to keep an eye on him as these spy types had a bad habit of leaving behind things that they shouldn't and security was his responsibility after all, it wasn't that he thought Coulson was a bad person but he didn't trust anyone else but himself when it came to Jericho's safety. Once he closed the door and Coulson made his way to leave the property, Mr. Lock activated a panel on a nearby wall and a bank of monitors activated so that he could watch and record Coulson leaving as well as the vehicle that he used. It had already been swept while they had their meeting just to be sure but he wasn't paid to not be paranoid. Once Coulson had left, he would personally scan the entire complex for any sort of spyware to make sure that the location was secure for the final few hours that Jericho was still here. "I will make arrangements for the helicopter to pick you up from the roof Sir, the Airplane will be standing by. Shall I arrange for your usual equipment to be waiting at the safe house Sir?" Mr. Lock had been in this business for a long time with a reputation that was boarding on legendary, there wasn't a theatre in the world where he hadn't fought or plyed his trade and there were still people wondering what it was that Jericho had done that had secured his services. A walking armory with the talent and skills to ensure that he was never lacking in work, he had tied his flag long ago to Jericho's and in the early days it had been his reputation that had scared several potential assasins away from the young thief. Mr. Lock was also in charge of making arrangements for the safe houses that Jericho used on his missions and so he would do the same here as he activated the secured laptop that he had and got ready to do just that as the Helicopter was made ready for when he was ready to depart.

"Trust me, I'll get what you need. I guarantee it," he said returning the firm handshake as he too stood up and collected his coat and hat. Already he was considering details even before the two of them parted ways. Once Coulson had seen himself out, Jericho decided to pour himself another drink after finishing his first one and he had to admit he enjoyed how smooth it was as it went down. It really was moments like these that he had to savor, a new contract, a new challenge. This was the kind of stuff he lived for and he imagined if this went well, he'd be doing very, very well for himself.

With a bit of a sigh, he looked over at this friend as he mentioned preparing the helicopter and having the jet available to him upon arrival. "Excellent," he said with a smile as he took another drink from his glass before he was asked about his usual equipment. "Please, I have a feeling I will get plenty of use out of everything," he said quickly finishing off the drink again before placing the glass on the bar and walking toward the door. "While I'm gone, why don't you treat yourself to something nice on me. Just try not to have too much fun while I'm gone, my friend."

“In any war, there are calms between storms. There will be days when we lose faith. Days when our allies turn against us...but the day will never come that we forsake this planet and its people.”
Mr. Lock relaxed a little more now that this Coulson person had left, he was still an unknown quantity to him and so that put him in the risk pile, risks were not something that he enjoyed having around his friend but that was just a part of their business. Jericho had a bad habit of being entirely to carefree when it came to his personal security which was why he had taken on the role because frankly his scrawny butt would have been shot years ago if it wasn't for him. They were a good team and better friends though you could not have told from the way they engaged with each other around people, they had made sure that the aura of professionalism was maintained when there were other people present. There were many people around the world that had tried to hire him away, Mr. Lock had a near legendary reputation in the areas of the world where that sort of thing mattered and his price when he decided to rent himself out would be considerable but money had never really interested him when it came to his work. Formerly US Marine Core, Mr. Lock or Grey to his friends had worked his way into Special Forces and earned a strong reputation in the Shadow Ops community, he had gone on to join the Navy Seals having qualified through their cross operations mandate and enjoyed a long career there before retiring out and becoming a mercenary. Grey still loved his country but he had done his bit and now he wanted to set himself up so he would never have to work again unless he wanted to, his journey took him from Africa to Europe and to the cold steppes of Russia but never did he fail to fulfil an assignment.

It had been on one such assignment that he had met Jericho and he had always killed the kid but he wasn't specifically a part of the assignment so he hadn't shot him with his sniper rifle, they ended up assisting each other in finishing their assignment and a friendship was born. He chuckled when Jericho told him to buy himself something nice "Since when do I ever do that, besides I am coming with you. Everyone knows you can't pilot a plane worth a damn let alone a helicopter." He knew that Jericho had other means of transportation but this wasn't mission critical and that sort of thing could draw attention as they had learned in the past, walking out to gather up their equipment, he would prep the helicopter once it arrived to make sure it was secured and then he would fly them to their destination. Mr. Lock looked at his phone and he got additional Intel from Coulson, apparently the facility they were going to had a rotation when it came to guard times and patrol routes to stop themselves from becoming predictable and they had recently upgraded their security systems with Alien technology so Lord only knew what they were capable of. He acknowledged delivery of the Intel and sent it to Jericho so he could have a look as he started to gather their equipment for the mission.

"Yeah I know, I just say it in the hopes that one day you might actually do it and enjoy yourself one of these days," he said with a smirk. His friend was probably one of the best in his field and an invaluable component to his success in his work. Money, power, women, Mister Lock was around it all and could have his fair claim to it all, but the work always seemed to come first. Fair enough, though he knew that in his off time, he certainly had his luxuries. There was a time and a place though and Mister Lock tended to take care of business which meant he could afford to be a little more relaxed.

"For your information, I know how to pilot the plane and the chopper well enough. I just don't want you going out of practice," he said with a smirk collecting his gear and heading to the chopper. While he could certainly be a little more on the carefree side, there was a point where the young man certainly got into the zone. He needed to look over all the intel and formulate his plan. He'd arrive, establish a safe house, he'd take the astral plane and do some recon beforehand, teleport in and with the information gathered move to complete his mission.

“In any war, there are calms between storms. There will be days when we lose faith. Days when our allies turn against us...but the day will never come that we forsake this planet and its people.”
Grey walked upstairs to get his gear, he kept all of it in pristine condition because he was a professional and he made sure to check his kit over at least once every couple of days and every week he took apart all of the equipment in there to clean and maintain it. One of the things that they had drilled into him in the military was that a soldier was only as good as the equipment that he had on him and it was a lesson that had saved his life more than once out there in the field, opening the door to the room where they kept their equipment Grey started to pull down cases from the wall and opening them up so that he check them over. His armor was hanging up from a hook and he had just checked that this morning so he could skip that but his assault shotgun needed to be disassembled and checked before suiting up and putting together the rest of his equipment along with double checking over Jericho's equipment. He could be lax when it came to making sure everything that he was using had gone through its checks but he was still a professional so Grey made sure to give him that respect at least. The only things that he didn't touch was his magical items, he wasn't that good with magic though Jericho had taught him a couple of things like runes of protection and basic magic like that, anything else more advanced were things that he kept away from, magic was Jericho's area and he wasn't going to go anywhere near that.

Not many things made him feel small but magic was that for him, he had seen far too many things over the years for him to underestimate anything when it came to magic but the mundane that was something he could face. Gathering up their equipment after he had checked it, he made his way up to the helicopter and packing it away, he jumped into the pilot's chair and started take-off procedures while calling into the airport to get the jet prepared for departure. The Lab was working on some pretty interesting stuff right now as they moved about the business biogenetic research, the gel had been an extraordinary find which was why their investors had increased security and installed sensors that were far in advance of anything they had seen with HYDRA. The labs had were environmentally sealed but these had been reinforced now that they were working with alien technology and everyone had submitted to deep scans to ensure security, with everything going on right now and the World distracted, they can get work done that the AVENGERS and SHIELD would never have allowed them to. Security numbers had been beefed up in numbers and included metahumans of various types, HYDRA made sure that when they secured a facility, they secured it but that was a lesson they had paid a high price in learning. They had another team with armored suits they had secured from Hammer Industries being delivered today as well so if anyone came here looking for trouble they would find this facility ready for damn near anything.

Hail to the King
Has a nice ring to it



From the chopper to the jet, Jericho made sure that they didn't waste a second considering the time frame they were operating with. Sitting back in his chair with a tablet in his hands, he was looking over any bit of information he could find on the facility itself. The fun thing about the internet was that if you knew where to look, you could find anything. Doing his homework was a bit part of his success rate, building schematics, employee dossier's, anything he could get his hands on. This was just the tip of the iceberg though, his method was much more in depth than all that.

While it was true that with a wave of his hand he could have create a portal to Indiana, the plane ride did have it's use. Getting closer and closer to the destination, Jericho made himself comfortable and magically separated his consciousness from his physical form. In the astral plane he could go where he wanted, see what he needed and no one would be any the wiser unless he wished it. With this ability at his disposal, he could easily scout the area and find what he needed. The first stop, was Doctor Branson's office, with a good idea of what it looked like, he could teleport in easy. It only depended on what idea he'd used to finish the mission.

If he was going with the silent option then he would need to use his tech to mimic the doctor's thumbprint, a retinal scan and of course his voice. Two of these could be duplicated by his photostatic veil, the thumbprint was also a simple thing to gain. By planting the case of the veil in his office, he could easily gain the voice print and a DNA sample could be found as well. Slipping through the astral plane, noting the doctor's office on the registry in the lobby he easily made his way there. He had to admit, as far as office's went, this one wasn't too bad. Since it was still relatively dark, now might be a good time to look for prints and DNA.

The travel time was the worst part of the profession that he had taken on because it gave a man time to think which in the soldiering business wasn't the best use of your time, Grey typically prepared his weapons and cleaned them again because that was what you did. When your life relied upon your equipment you made damn sure that everything was in order and functioning properly, he never let it be said that his equipment was sloppy or even worse, dirty. That was simply unacceptable in his line of work and the true Professional never let that happen, over the years with Jericho though he had manifested a sensitivity to magic at least he felt that he did and as Jericho went Astral there was a tingling sensation in the back of his mind, a brush with destiny as he liked to think of it. This was when his physical body was at its most vulnerable and so Grey ran another radar sweep of their area to make sure that the skies were clear before walking back there to secure Jericho to the seat. Someone might fire missiles at them and if he had to take evasive action then he wanted to be ready for it without having to worry that he might injure Jericho in the process, that had happened once early in their Professional relationship and it had been a lesson that they had both learned from. Once he was certain that Jericho was secure, he went back to this seat and continued to monitor all radar systems in case something changed, it was a rare thing for him to be caught flat footed and he intended not to court fate by being arrogant.

- Biotech Facility -

The personnel at the facility were working as they typically did, their work was classified and extremely dangerous but they were using state of the art equipment and had the expertise to do this sort of work without posing a hazard to themselves or to the outside environment. In this line of work, mistakes were not things that were tolerated without consequences but the financial rewards were significant which was why they never had a problem attracting talented individuals to work for them. Security was always on call and they were well armed, after the previous incidents with SHIELD and the AVENGERS paranoia had become a watchword, security passes and clearances were constantly being reviewed and even authorised personnel were escorted in highly classified areas to ensure that they were who they said they were. Being a HYDRA facility they were more than familiar with the various gadgets that could be used to simulate appearance and retinal scans, it was a pain and there were complaints about it but the Council was clear, all high security areas had to be travelled in under escort, work carried out there was strictly monitored by remote drones so that the guards could continue with their patrol route if a scientist was working on something there. Given the presence of metahuman security forces and the firepower that the non-powered security forces had it would take a real force to breach their security and even then who would try and get into a place that worked with bio tech? It was a question everyone asked themselves as they went about their daily routines.
