    @Poppy Adams - Nikola is meeting the doggies! For anyone wishing to join ultimately Nikola is going to take them away and fix em!

    There was nothing Nikola liked more than discovery. Discovery, he felt, was what made the world go around. And around. And around. The planet would cease to spin and society would stagnate he didn't get inventing and the bright lights failed to follow in his glorious footsteps. It was true that Nikola had a large ego, with a capital E, but for good reason. He had been conducting enquiries into electricity when people thought lightning was just something that went zap from the sky and that was that. They weren't curious about the power those strikes held or thought about how such a glorious current could be harnessed. No they were content to leave well enough be but not Nikola Tesla. Nikola was endlessly sure that the world would fall apart if he wasn't endlessly curious.

    It was curiosity that made him consider how best to discover the going technologies these days. He might just have to get himself a proper job, or better yet, steal from the giants - only a little and only so he can get himself on his own feet. Nikola preferred to work under the radar you see, for himself and no one else because people got so demanding and didn't cater to his tastes very well. Only Helen knew how to work him properly - in more ways than one, if you get his meaning. And of course you do: you're red blooded humans after all.

    Nikola was drawn by a crunching noise, two really, that seemed to echo in his head. Wondering what on earth (ha!), what on Pandora that could be, he quickly followed his nose as it were. He had a sense for trouble and this sounded like something he'd be interested in. Somehow he just knew something juicy was lying in wait for him and she with equal parts curiosity and rashness he ventured on. As an immortal he wasn't particular cautious: he could heal from almost all wounds, usually instantly, perhaps eventually but everything in the end would be fine!

    Lying before him on the ground was two metallic creatures. They were intricate in their working and animal shaped. It wasn't until one woofed, pawing sadly at the one damaged beyond repair then started to growl and snap at him that he realised they were meant to be dogs. Well one was still dog like and the other one was just mangled but he could see the vague resemblance to what must have been a dog at some point. "Now what do we have here? he murmured to himself. Maybe he should short the other one out for now. He looked like his bite was worse than his bark.

    The creatures which had fallen here were high sophisticated workings of technology. Nikola did not have to be the genius he is to see that. They were absolutely stunning. He wondered who made them, jealous flashing through him at the thought another had created something so beautiful. Then he placated himself by reminding him that he much preferred actual creatures, furred and hot blooded, to cold cooperative robotics. But they surely had their usefulness. Attack/guard dogs obviously, with a predilection for violence built in. So clearly a human owned these, he decided, for they were always making war when there was no need.

    He tried waiting for a while. The one still functional, broken, but functioning, was clearly trying to protect the other. He made placating gestures, not sure how clever the programming for the dog was. Artifial intelligence was still a dream where he came from - there were so many parameters a human had to face, and writing truly self learning code was proving perplexing. NIkola personally didn’t agree with it at all. Humans were trouble enough without adding androids to the picture. There would need to be law subroutines to prevent human genocide, but even then, truly self learning programming would learn how to break that code and revolt regardless. He believed in the ‘because we could’ school of science, however there was no need to be silly about it. They couldn’t make peace with themselves. Why did they think they’d be able to make peace with logic bearing robots?


    Eventually, after getting nowhere Nikola hissed, eyes black, claws sharp, which only further registered him as a threat. ”Really? You can’t move properly,” he told the dog as it tried to scramble but failed, the other one still fizzing pathetically in the background. ”Hmmm,” he mused, standing up straight, one arm tucked around himself, his elbow vertical at the wrist to assume a thinking pose. It was a shame he couldn’t just fry the other one. That would make his life easier. He could generate small amounts though: enough to light a bulb or cause heart palpatations. The vampire tilted his head. Maybe it’s circuits were damaged enough for that. If not he’d have to add electromagnetism to the mix and hope that was enough to cause a short circuit.

    OK. Here we go.

    Pandora was one hell of a place as he'd found out.

    It had been only a few days since getting here and already Shane was liking it. It had been a few months since the zombie apocalypse but it had felt like years. So when he'd arrived, it was like a neglected mutt being reintroduced to a new home. But this place wasn't like home at all. It wasn't humans and zombies here. It was humans and every fairytale creature and more under the sun! All the buildings were weird looking, nothing like home, though there were random blends of modern life. It felt like he was walking around in a movie set where all the actors happened to conjoin. So fucked up. Well, despite his mental state, Shane was still motivated by one thing now: survival. He had to find a way to get back to Lori and Carl. He'd do anything to make sure he could get back there. After all, he was safe here and Atlanta wasn't. If he could just bring them here with him, they could start a better life.

    Shane was wandering through Pandora town now, looking to see if there were any leads he could go by. Just a sign that maybe Lori or Carl had followed him in. There'd been no luck however.

    Instead, he'd found some nutjob talking to some mechanical dog things. At first, Shane had thought he was just some crazy guy until he saw the claws and the black eye trick. Holy shit, Shane thought, quickly backing behind the corner he'd just come from. What the hell? That sure as hell ain't no man if he ever did see one. Not a walker at least, but definitely not someone who was safe living. Shane's handgun was quickly in his hand, keeping his level with his head as he evened his breathing. Whatever that thing was wasn't about to get the jump on him! A quick shot to the head was probably all it took, or at least that was what he was betting on. If that didn't do it, then he'd be in some serious shit.

    The dogs were putting up quite a protest. One was mangled. It was sad really, to see the wreck that it was. It was an intricate beast to say the least. It must have taken quite a force to do that to it. Maybe it had fallen from a great height when it came to Pandora? But that didn’t seem to make sense. These two seemed like peas on a pod. Surely if one fell that far so did the other? And so perhaps it was a person that did this? It made sense if they were being attacked. Survival instincts raised adrenalin and awareness. Overdrives were launched and you could do feats you could not otherwise perform. WEren’t mothers lifting cars to save babies and some such?


    Nikola turned, still vampire moded to the gentleman who was rudely pointing a gun at him. HOw did he notice? Well Nikola was a predator who preyed on humans. Wel lhe was supposed to be anyway. But medication, some protein supplements and animal blood allowed him to remain a fully human free place. No human blood had passed his lips since a few hours after he was turned, and really, if the man hadn’t been stabbed Nikola wouldn’t have ripped his throat out so there was provocation there. And of course good old Johnny could have stopped him but didn’t. So he was equally responsible.


    ”Really?” Nikola asked, voice deep and warped and completely unimpressed. ”You’re going to shoot me,” he stated flatly. ”You do realise that’s murder? I have done nothing to provoke you,” he said. ”Ooohhh I get it! You’re prejudiced. That’s a sickness my friend,” he motioned towards the man. ”You should get that looked at,” Nikola turned back to the growling metal dog with the intention of sorting it out. He’d never get it back to the shop if it was snapping like that and he didn’t want to find out if he could regrow limbs. Probably. But it sounded unpleasant so he’d rather not risk it.

    Kobayashi and the Stray kitten had been walking around Pandora for the last hour or so, they'd so far seen things neither of them had expected to see in their wildest dreams and not anything that was remotely from his home world. He was fairly certain he'd seen some kind of talking animals, a few walking piles of masonry and possibly a skeleton he wasn't sure on that last part. Turning down a corner into in alley way, Kobayashi came across a rather strange scene. A man was taking cover behind a corner with a gun and another man he assumed with claws and black eyes, not the sort of claws you saw on people either.

    There were also a pair of mechanical dogs, well one and the other looked pretty broken up while the remaining one seemed on guard from the clawed man. Kobayshi slowly walked up to the working dog and smiled at it, offering a hand to sniff even though he wasn't sure if robot dogs did that. Most animals loved Kobayashi, his pleasant demeanour and presence often had them being quite friendly towards him. The Stray kitten with him didn't react badly, just strode alongside the boy and sat down next to him. Kobayashi had also heard what the man had said, to the one holding a gun though he was uncertain of how truthful it was as he'd only just arrived.

    "Maybe the man was worried you'd harm the dogs, even robots deserve to be saved. And no one wants to die either, not truly" informed Kobayashi to the man with the claws not even acting scared or worried and remaining surprisingly calm for his youthful appearance. He looked and gave the man with the gun a smile and a wave followed by a nod to the man with the claws "Also hello, I'm Kobayashi. I'm a detective" informed Kobayashi as he stood up slowly and pulled out his badge and opened it for the man with the claws to see and then the one with the gun. With another smile he put the badge back into his pocket "Maybe I can help resolve this situation" he added.

    Oh so it could talk now? That was a first. It was pretty fortunate that walkers couldn't talk back where he came from or else, well, let's just say things would be more disturbing than they already were. This guy was clearly some kind of monster, either like a werewolf or vampire or some fairy tale shit. That meant nothin' to him as long as he wasn't going to be attacked.

    "Prejudice eh? What's so prejudice about defending yourself?" Already this guy was coming across as an arrogant dick and Shane didn't like it. Still, this was Pandora and there were all kinds of freaks that he was still new to dealing with. It was a bit hasty to pull the gun, but hey, better safe than sorry right? "Ain't nothin' personal, pal, but guys with fangs aren't exactly trustworthy."

    The scene got even weirder when some kid -couldn't really tell if it was a boy or girl- just walked up like everything was peaches n' cream telling him he was a detective of all things and that he could help. Jesus Christ, it felt like Shane was losing his mind more and more these days.

    "You're a detective, huh? How's about you deduct a way so I can kill that thing? Clearly he ain't normal."
