    @Liquid Infinitum (you can decide which character you want to throw into this)

    Neo was frustrated. No, not just frustrated. She was smarting. Her first chance, ruined, by some interfering busybody, who was fortunate enough to be powerful enough to stop her. She had gotten away,because of course she did. She always got away. It was the upside of her Semblance. Well, one of them. Still, she kept her cool, because she couldn't get her revenge if she was dead, and she really, really wanted revenge. Was this how Roman felt whenever Ruby disturbed one of his plans? She was starting to understand why he got so mad now.

    Still, there was only one thing to do.

    Try again.

    Taking a breath,half-way across Pandopolis City from the first alley she had tried this in, Neo was trying something a little more subtle. Pick-pocketing. She hadn't done it in so long, and she certainly wasn't dumb enough to be using her real appearance. Green eyes stared out of blackhair, tied into pigtails, as she grazed the market, picking wallets from pockets, and watches off wrists. She was doing so well when somebody noticed.

    Naofumi has been in one of the bigger towns, mostly out of curiosity because he’d yet to actually go to them quite yet. His first choice was the hodgepodge centre that was Pandopolis, and after seeing all the mix match buildings. Naofumi thought he’d have some fun and activated his hate reaction Shield, he was worried that it might attract monsters.

    But being in the middle of town meant the guards could deal with that should a monster be stupid enough to come into town. He was more interested in the secondary ability of the shield, allowing him to see the true forms of people he observed around town. He’d gotten good enough that it didn’t always alert them, that their guise had been revealed. However, something else caught his eye when one of the illusions was of a pick pocketing girl. Naofumi sighed and walked forward ”Hey double hair tone, you do know the punishments around Pandora are pretty harsh. Maybe you should leave your sticky fingers at home” informed Naofumi as he came closer to the girl.

    He hoped by pointing out her true form, it would get the girl’s attention focused on him. The man known as the Shield Hero was a safer bet to take on this little illusion welding girl then some random on the street. Though he was ready should she try to take him on, when cornered most criminals would flee or attack.

    Neo palmed someone's watch, feeling the weight land in a pocket that was specially sown into her sleeve for this purpose. It was easy. No one looked twice at her, just another person at the market, and the people observant enough to stop what she was doing were other pickpockets. A look, a wink, and they both went their own ways, off to fleece some more poor souls of their money. It was a bazaar, after all. Where there were people, there would be crime. She was pretty sure someone was being mugged and murdered in an alleyway over there, but that wasn't her business.

    Speaking of not someone's business...

    There was a moment when Neo was concerned that the illusion had dropped, that she had lost control, but the thrumm of her Semblance remained, the feeling of a second skin still there. So clearly someone had some sort of ability to see through illusions.

    It didn't matter. That guy shouting after her was the only one who could, so he couldn't prove to anyone that it was her. Everyone else saw the black-haired, green-eyed urchin, and who knows who he was talking about? Playing innocent, hands clasped to her chest in mock horror, Neo looked around, as if she was looking for this mysterious 'two-tone hair' girl, before shrugging, and continued to do her thing, walking away from the weirdo with the shield.

    Naofumi knee he was only one seeing her, at least as she was and what she was doing but the girl wanted to play clueless. Even had the gall to play shocked and then attempt to walk away, he sighed a little and knew he’d have to do something. Naofumi has also heard the cries of help from the alley, so he figured he’d fix two problems with just one move.

    Thankfully this move wouldn’t change the nature of his shield but he’d still have to call it out regardless, he first pointed to the alleyway where someone was being mugged and or murdered. ”Air strike shield” called Naofumi as the transparent shield appeared and was thrown into a group of three men attacking a fourth person. He then pulled the shield back into nothin and said the words again, this was all in quick succession of about a few seconds maybe half a minute.

    Saying the words once more, this time planting the transparent green shield right in front of the illusion clad girl. Stopping her forward progress, though this wasn’t his only move. He then smirked and activated the revealing part of his current shield’s power. This power forces people who are using concealing magic or skills back into their true form. ”If you’d just done the right thing, I wouldn’t of had to force you to be revealed. I guess the next move is to call the guards or police, unless you’re more then a thief and wish to try something further” added Naofumi.

    Neo had to laugh. Honestly, this guy just airstriked some muggers with a see-through shield. How desperate was he, to be a hero? Plus, she could play innocent all day. He had no proof, apart from what he had seen, what he thought he had seen. No handcuffs could hold her, if she didn't want them too, and she could easily dump everything she had stolen. If he got any closer, she could plant them on him with ease, too. She doubted he was a member of the guard, considering that he wasn't arresting her yet, which meant that he was just another vigilante. If he wasn't registered, she could get him arrested.

    The shield landed in front of her, and she rolled her eyes. Looking back at him, Neo felt her illusion fall, not of her own choice, and simply shrugged. She could fight him, but it wasn't worth it. She had a mission, after all. Then, with a knowing smile, Neo bowed, in seeming surrender, before she tapped into her Aura, and jumped, higher than any normal person would be able to jump. At the peak of her jump, she extended her parasol, and started to fly away on the breeze.

    This girl was really getting on his last nerve, even when the illusion was dropped. The girl feinted a bow and then jumped like a comic book character, though given her hair style it was likely more manga like then comic related.

    He sighed as he called out for his portal shield, the shield appeared and he teleported to the rooftop near where he girl had started floating off.

    ”Rope Shield” he called as said Shield appeared on his arm, he sent the rope part of the shield towards little miss two tone. ”You’re really ruining Mary Poppins’ image here” he commented hoping to get the rope to snatch her around the legs or even a foot.

    Neo wasn't sure if she could physically express how little he cared about whoever the fuck Mary Poppins was. This guy was starting to get on her nerves, though, with his heroic posturing and his holier-than-thou attitude. It wasn't like she had even killed anyone, just pickpocketed some people. None of them were exactly poor, either. It was like he couldn't do anything of actual worth, so he was just hunting down any random pickpocket that crossed his path. Why couldn't he go and solve a murder, or save a princess or something? She didn't have time for this.

    Neo rolled her eyes, as the guy shouted what he was doing, giving away any element of surprise he might have had. It was pathetic, really. Neo looked down at the ropes coming for her feet, and then up at him, and rolled her eyes again, dancing around them with ease. Then she jumped back, standing on the edge of the building, facing him and took a step back, falling to the ground.
