Who: Duela, Jokester, Harlequin, Jake Berenson, Mari Broderick, and Kazuma Yagami

What: As it reads on the tin. Mari arrives with the new allies as they'll come up with a plan on what to do about the Copycat Joker.

When: Just after this scene!

Where: Kazuma's old home in the world he originally grew up in.

Kazuma pocketed his phone after staring at it a moment. A part of him wanted to contact his family; his cousin Ayano and younger brother Ren--but then he had second thoughts.

Since Kazuma's lived a life with Jake and his other friends in another world for over a few years, he figured it would be very awkward, with a lot of drama involved. Also, he sure as hell didn't want Ren near Vertigo. The vile and cruel lizard sorceress had a very different way of using magic. In a fight against Mari's boyfriend, from what he heard, she had dodged and blocked his fire attacks. Ayano was more than capable of taking care of herself, while Ren wasn't close to being powerful as their cousin.

He frowned, pondering about that sadistic, murderous clown. Ayano and her friends from school went to the city often, for their school was over there. And there were places in which they'd hang out at on the weekends or after school. Kazuma squeezed his jaws together. He could picture a crazy fight scene in his mind of Ayano and the Joker... Maybe she is somewhere far away from him.

Oh, who was he trying to kid? He then shook his head, before he could let himself get worked up over that.

As he stood in the foyer, he noticed the knob of the front door being turned. He noticed a red haired lady with pale make up on coming in. In remembering what Mari's texts had described, he figured this had to be one of their new allies who decided to help them track the murdering criminal down. In seeing this woman, that had to mean Mari and the other two were close behind. Wearing a relaxed smile, he said, "Well, that was quick.”

A friend of Jake’s had also used humor as a defensive mechanism. Marco didn’t only crack jokes whenever there was opportunity. Man oh man, could he complain...

In spite of the fact that it had been too close a call, getting shot at with a laughing gas bullet, he managed a partial smile towards the trio who looked like they escaped from a circus.

Kazuma and Mari just didn’t seem to be bothered by their wisecracking at all.

“If I use my enhanced speed, I could inject the antidote,” Mari offered. “I zip by, stick it in, and get back before he could do anything to me.”

“Sounds good to me,” Kazuma said.

“All I can do is help look for him,” Jake said. “This time, I’ll be much higher in the air.” He looked to Mari. “I’ll have an easier time dodging bullets.” You won’t need to worry.

“Is there a way to lead him someplace where there are less people around?” Kazuma asked Duela, Jokester, and Harlequin. “My cousin, a fire magic user, can handle her own against such a menace, but she lacks in self control. And we prefer for most people to remain unaware about our powers.”

Harlequin nods. "And if we manage to gas him first, maybe he'd even let you..." She'll fix up a couple syringes while her daughter finishes assembling the gas grenades.

As much as Jokester doesn't like the idea of Joker around people in general, he knows that question is a pretty tall order. "If he's tricked into it, maybe. Look, when you're putting on a show, you don't intentionally go where there's less of an audience, am I right? Captive or otherwise. Now Batsy... Batsy was an exception. He was an audience all on his own. But that's a whole other complicated can of worms, and we don't know enough about this guy to know if there's anyone like that around." He paces a bit as he speaks. "If he's anything at all like me... I mean, besides the obvious... he's going to want attention. You can't get that with no one around. The only way to get him away from live, injurable people is to make him at least think he's going somewhere where even more people will notice. And I doubt we have time to co-opt some on-location film shooting or something."

Jokester's still pacing as he tries to think of a way to lure Joker away from potential victims. Granted, there'd been a few times he'd been sneakier... but that had usually involved some game with the Bat that was meant to at least end in something huge and attention-getting. With his attention on this, he fails to notice the new topic.

Duela, however, doesn't. She barely gets the last gas grenade screwed shut, hands shaking slightly, before she bolts up from her spot on the floor to hug Jokester tightly.

He just looks confused. "Did I miss something?"

Harlequin offers the prepped syringes to Mari, a worried expression on her face. "'Ella... went missing once. It didn't turn out well," she says softly. Gathering up the grenades, she gives the other two clowns a stern look, and adds, "And we don't have time now to go through another round of both of you trying to claim all the blame for that mess, so don't start."

Oh yeah, that. Jokester gets it now, hugging Duela back and ruffling her hair. "Yeah... well... That whole thing could have gone better."

Mari took the syringes from Harlequin and looked to her and her family, a little confused. Ella? Who’s that? Someone else in their...?

She mentally filed away this concern, and chose not to bring up what had to be a sore subject. She awaited Kazuma to answer her question, about Ayano and Ren in particular. In the past, he had mentioned them on good terms. He had been close with them. His father? Not so much. Genma Kannagi was a horrible parent to have disowned his older son, when he was unable to get a handle on fire magic as a kid.

“I appreciate your concern, but this isn’t the time,” Kazuma said, his expression a calm and stern one. “Now that we know you’re capable of taking us from world to world, we could catch up when no one’s in real danger... We’ll save Ayano and confront her if we have to, and only that.”

Mari wasn’t so sure he understood the full sentiment behind her concerns, that he should let them know he’s okay sooner, instead of later. “But we can’t predict if she and Ren, and the rest of the Kannagis will stay safe-“

“You’re right. We can’t,” Kazuma interjected. “But every member of them together won’t lose against our new foe. The current head of the family, and my old man are both very strong on their own.” There was the slightest resentment Mari heard when Kaz mentioned his dad. She knew and understood that he always refused to call him Dad, or Father.

Mari didn’t back off completely as her voice softened. She didn’t want to argue, nor did she want Kazuma to lose his real family like she had. “I hope to help end all our current troubles soon then, so you’ll be reunited with your loved ones.” She said no further, and zipped open her purse. The syringes could be stored in there until it was time to use them.
