Mae, huh? Well, it'd happened before, but as far as mispronouncing went, it wasn't horrendous. While continuing to scan the surroundings, including the 'sleeping' cop, she passed her hand around Solar's waist, pulling her away from the sand shelter. "Yes, yes, we've caught her. Now, how about you let the boys handle the interrogation? They're a bit more cool-headed than you right now."

"Cool-headed!? That rat almost broke my horn and ran off! No one touches my horns and gets away with it! Lemme go! I'll beat him to a pulp!" Solar  angrily shouted at the sand while struggling to get out of Maena's grasp. Solar's tantrum added to the attention the group was attracting, a dome of sand, Solar yelling at it, and Maena stopping her, more and more heads turned in confused looks what was going on.



As Suna went on, the tears in the little thief's eyes pooled up and eventually dripped down her face. She quickly reached for something behind her and threw it at Suna and Sean before scrambling away and continued to claw and dig at the wall of sand. The object that landed at the pair's feet was a small box shaped radio. A switch was flipped on the device making a beeping noise with a flashing yellow light. The noise and the light immediately cut out to be replaced by a green light and a voice

"You better have it if your calling, you know what happens otherwise don't you?"

Sometimes it really, really sucked to be right.

Glancing at Suna in a 'keep an eye on this gizmo' sort of a way, Sean reached down and was just about to pick it up when it crackled to life and a voice issued from it. Communicator, eh? Probably a radio, given the looks of it. The smuggler, after examining it a moment, picked the device up and pushed what looked like the 'talk' button.

"Nope, not a clue. Very curious to find out, however." He let a hefty dose of smug seep into his voice -- in moments like these, projecting confidence could make or break things. He made a gesture with his free hand for the girl to keep quiet; now was the time to see how far he could carry this 'good cop' routine. "Your patsy dropped this, by the way; she's a slippery one, but it's just a matter of time until we catch her. You picked a fight with the wrong group today." It was a bluff, of course; if the employer realized that thief-girl had already been captured she'd become expendable -- hell, taking her "out of the picture" might just become the behind-the-scene boss' priority. Making it seem like she was still at large not only protected the girl, it gave this team a possible opening they could use. Sean was no tactician, but he did have the street savvy to think on his feet and throw in a misdirect. "So why not make this easy? Turn yourself in, admit to assaulting those people, and you'll avoid the painful beat-down we're going to dump on your sorry ass."

Suna huffed as Sean proceeded to respond back to the man. While what he said to the little thief had been harsh, it was true. Suna waited until Sean was finished talking before speaking up, making sure that his finger was off the button of the radio.

"Boss man won't let a pawn's mistakes go unpunished, even if it wasn't the truth. If he didn't have a target over her head before, now he does." While Suna happened to be playing the "bad guy" role throughout this entire fiasco, he did intend to keep the runt safe for as long as he believed her to be mostly innocent. Suna turned to get and said, "We need you to take us to him. I'll give you my cloak if you do." His cloak, while a bit worn, was still in better condition than the runt's, and he also figured that she'd need a change in wardrobe to disguise herself just in case.

Maena brought the rightly miffed Faunus even closer, now less holding her back than she was hugging her from behind. "Shhhh, shh. I know, Solar, and I truly understand. Your horns look awesome and you want to keep them that way. I'm just asking you to wait until the boys're done with the interrogation before scolding her into next Tuesday, okay?"

Maena briefly glanced around.

...

Yeah, this agitation would be better if it stopped. Sooner the better.

Maena's one comment doused Solar's rage like water over a fire. "Really!? You think so? They are kinda cool right? Sometimes they can get in the way like wearing hats or helmets, but they make a great weapon!" Solar said blushing slightly from the off hand compliment.



"So why not make this easy? Turn yourself in, admit to assaulting those people, and you'll avoid the painful beat-down we're going to dump on your sorry ass."

"Well your obviously not the pipsqueak, and who exactly are you? my imagination is going wild with possibilities right now; an angry mob gang is my
first guess. And assaulting what people? Turning in myself for what exactly? Nope try again child. All I did was hire the runt, now pop quiz for you!

What's my name?

Come on don't disappoint me it's so nice to be recognized even in this backwater kingdom"
as the voice went on the disguised voice changed to that of a male voice that radiated a kind of smugness that came from royalty.

Despite Suna'a kind gesture the thief was preoccupied with digging her way out of the sand. She paused for a moment to look at him with a scarred look only to turn back around and resume her work.

Sean listened as the voice on the radio shifted from distorted and disguised to something far more identifiable -- male, entitled, and too smug by half. Whoever was on the other end was playing dumb; the smuggler didn't for one moment believe that this mysterious voice person hired the thief-girl but had nothing to do with the assault on Solar, nor was he quite buying the whole foreign male princeling business. Sean was, after all, a mechanic and a tinkerer -- voice modulators were a bit outside his field of expertise, true, but he knew that they could be pretty convincing at disguising people's voices, and this smelled of a false lead. Fake or not, however, there was one thing he had that was concrete and factual: the device in his hand. He looked it over a bit more in depth as the voice continued to rant and rave, making careful note of the design. If he could get it open, take a look at the components... he could probably determine the range and whether or not it was designed to signal-boost via the CCT tower. If it was, as Sean suspected, short range only...

"Again: don't know but very eager to find out." Sean spoke into the radio. "You talk big and tough, but I'm willing to bet it's all talk -- nothing but empty words. If you'd care to prove me wrong, though,why not come find me? I'll bet you're already running an ID on my voice, so I'll make it nice and easy for you: I'm Sean Acacia, and I really, really enjoy blowing shit up. Maybe I'll find your shit and blow some of it up, eh? Sounds like a good time from where I'm standing. Care to try me, rich boy?"

Yes, he was making himself a target, but it was probably the best option at this point for drawing out the anonymous troublemaker. Solar was probably already a known entity for this guy, and the police search for both Solar and himself was essentially public knowledge at this point. As long as Suna and Maena could avoid the spotlight then their group still had an advantage or two...

Suna sighed at the rejection of his offer. He took a few steps towards the runt and gently grabbed the back of her collar, moving her away from the wall of the dome. "Stop that," he said as he maintained his grip, making sure that Sean was done talking so Suna couldn't be heard. "And don't make any more noise."

Suna sat back quickly, wondering who the man could possibly be before coming to the realization that, in the midst of this chaotic situation, he had come across a name. With his free hand, he brought out his scroll and on the screen was the information he had searched up earlier. Suna replaced it and took a step toward Sean, tugging the runt along with him, and snatched the radio from Sean's hands. He brought it up to his face and uttered a single word:

"Truer."

Maena was very glad her distraction had worked so well. It was a chance to talk to the only other girl in the team, too, so birds with one stone, right? "I'll say! I'm sure you can pack quite the punch with them.

By the way, how do you care for them? They've got a certain lustre to them, even.
" Briefly look around... all is well. Nobody suspicion in sight for now. Cop still dozing off. Sand tent... mildly innocuous? Not much she could do about that one, though.
