Marvin gave some of his men their final orders to finish escorting everyone out and to meet with the authorities before the business man would head to see them himself, then followed Mythos into the hall.

He stood in front of her for a moment, not averting his gaze from hers. He seemed to be reading her, from her posture and tone of voice to the tiniest movements of her body. Finally, he spoke up.

"I only have one thing to ask you. Why did you choose to become a huntress, Mythos?" he asked. His tone wasn't harsh, nor was it friendly or conversational. He spoke as if he was simply negotiating some business deal; if the events which had transpired in the past hour had any effect on him, it didn't show. "If you don't want to answer, you don't have to."

"I'll answer. In fact, I'll tell you everything I know." came the cold, stotic reply of a killer, eyes, face, even posture revealing nothing about what she was about to say. Even her eyes: cold, dead, as if she couldn't care what happened. To some degree this was true.

"As you're well-aware, huntress and hubtsman are the world's most renowned fighter. Skill, prestiege, strength being a few reasons why people do this. However, I don't know why I'm here. I don't know if my name is truly my name. My first memories was me waking up in a hut in a village long-gone to destruction. Beside me, a note which gave me instructions and a name, cleaned guns and a motorbike outside. That is the reason why I am here." Bringing her hand to her neck to scratch a growing itch, she continued.

"Whoever gave me these skills, they also gave me this mentality. This cold, dead void is all that I think I am. I guess you could simple say I'm following orders, like those men who attacked us, or like your own men." Mythos' whole explanation didn't change tone, not once. As if she was telling a fake story, to this extent whether it was the truth or not was  completely unknown to even the sharpest of wits.

Marvin knew already that Silica couldn't find out a single thing about the girl's past. The only thing he knew was that the girl had come here from Vacuo at some point - they had run into a similar problem looking into Rory's past, but not to this extent. It seemed clear that 'Mythos' was not her given name - the name had been linked with the criminal underground for years. Much longer than she could be responsible for.

Taking a few seconds to take in her word, Marvin made a decision to believe her. If she had a reason to lie, then it must have been a good one.

"A void? I would hardly say that. An empty void wouldn't recognize itself as such, nor would a void feel the need to explain itself to some stubborn old fool." He responded. He averted his gaze momentarily and instead took place to the girl's right, leaning against the wall much the same she was doing. It was hardly a calculated move, even if it seemed like such - it was just a more comfortable position to the man as well.

"I won't claim to know or understand what you've been through, or how you think. All I can tell you is what I know of myself. Of huntsmen." Marvin crossed his arms, looking towards the opposite wall. For a moment it seemed that a smile had crept up on his lips, but if it had, it faded away as quickly as it appeared.

"There are undoubtedly huntsmen out there who do it for the glory. For the thrill of it, or for the chance to prove themselves. I was all three, for that matter. Hell, so our entire team, my wife included. And still, you can call it a load of bull, but I've always felt that every huntsman has a bigger reason why they've taken this path. Some understand that reason before they even start training, others never figure it out in their entire lives. But there is... something." He looked towards Mythos again. "Far too many huntsmen wind up turning their weapons on their fellow man. What separates the good ones from the bad is that they don't make a habit of it."

He then looked back towards the wall. "I'll be taking full responsibility for what happened here tonight. For better or for worse, I should be able to keep what happened here as much of a secret as it could possibly be. If the authorities ask you anything, feel free to tell them I called the shots - or made them. Up to you."

There was a short pause, as if the man was looking for a way to finish his thought. FInally, he added: "And... never forget those whose lives you've taken. Lord knows I wish I had not made that mistake."

Rory certainly had his share of questions to ask -- why had Whitaker wanted to ambush Royale, what each stood to gain from this mad powerplay, and perhaps most immediately why he seemed to certain Whitaker had already absconded -- but, given what passed between their "host" and Mythos, it seemed such matters would have to wait. At least for the moment it seemed the crazed chase and its life-or-death scenarios had come to an end, or at least a pause. Even as Royale's forces swept and secured the room Rory half expected to see a fresh set of goons burst through one of the doorways and he couldn't help but note how alert, almost twitchy, his senses seemed right then, alert to every possible threat... even though none was likely to come at all.

Disengaging his shields, he suddenly remembered the revolver he'd confiscated earlier. It had been a gamble whether it would've done him any good, but honestly he was grateful not to have needed it. He carefully pulled the handgun out and made his way to the nearest of Royale's security team, extending the handle in offer. "I took this off one of Whitaker's hired hands, up on the office level during the initial ambush. Not really looking to keep it." He paused. "So... how much did your boss know in advance? Or is that something I'd need to take up with him?"

The man Rory had walked up to was the same one who had led the guards downstairs, and one of the guards which had been on the ship with the team, a man with blonde hair with a lime streak in it. He took the handgun and examined it for a moment. "Huh. These are standard issue for our security personnel. Lord knows where Whitaker got his hands on so many..."

He then looked back up at Rory and shrugged ever so slightly. "I only knew so much. Marvin knew that Whitaker was planning something, and he knew that he was doing something illegal. You could ask him yourself, but I think the gist of it was that bringing a bunch of kids with him could act as a deterrant. Apparently not. 's why he brought you guys, huntsmen in training."
