Tinder watches him walk and shakes her head, "No, I didn't meet him here. I met him in Ponyville and let him stay in my apartment for the night. We took a train to here to meet one of his contacts." She leans back in her chair and quickly checks to make sure that her bag is closed securely, so none of her stolen goods will fall out.

Ebony suddenly stops his pacing, "His contacts? Could he mean..." The captain goes to his desk and pulls out a red marker. "Knowing him there's only one contact he trusts enough for something like this." He reaches out and circles a single point on the map. Taking a few steps back he looks at the map then returns to his desk. "So we have a lead. There's little time to waste and it is of the essence." The noctral looks over to Tinder, "You're free to go. I gotta find him before things escalate out of control."

Tinder stands up as she's told that she's free to go, she turns around for a second before turning back to face him. "Can I come help you? Because I really want to know that Foxtrot's okay, I'm really worried about him. And I can help you, I have some skills that could prove useful." She smiles at him and waits patiently for a response.

Ebony rummages through his desk, pulling out his standard cuffs, badge, and a crossbow (yes he keeps a fully loaded crossbow under his desk, he's that prepared) before locking and loading. "Alright, I'm short on backup and I don't have  time to wait. Stay close, don't do anything stupid, and keep an eye out. One mistake and an information leak later and we're gonna have two countries tearing each other apart. Any questions?"

Tinder shakes her head, "Nope, no questions. I understand, so I promise I won't cause any trouble." She fixes her bag to make sure it's covering what it needs to be covering and smiles at him. "Oh, and just say if you need me to do anything or if you need to know anything."

The trio of ponies, Broadshield and his two lieutenants trotted into Coldsteel's office. "I assume you are Captain Ebony Coldsteel of the Lunar Guard. I am Commander Broadshield, commander of Special Forces Group 'Equinox'. Under orders of Princess Luna, I am to assist you with whatever it is you're doing. We have little time so I'll get straight to the point. Firstly, I was only just recently informed of what is happening, so all I know is that we are looking for a stallion who has information on the death of the general leading the insurrection in Calais, and the flooding of Calais. Is there anything else that I should know?" he asked, waiting for an answer.

Tinder automatically backs up as another guard type walks in, being raised as a thief she was always taught to avoid guards, not be in the same room as them. She takes a second to put a thin layer of ice over her bag with her magic, protecting her stolen goods and her painkillers from any that would take them.

"Good to have you on board Equinox." Ebony nods. "There's a V.I.P. with high value information that threatens the alliance between Equestria and Saddle Arabia. We need to locate this unicorn and return him here to the castle; there's a lead we can start with. Expect hostile individuals that are trying to catch him as well; if you can, arrest them on sight. Stay sharp, there's no way to distinguish who else may be after him. Lethal force is authorized." The captain reaches into his armor and pulls out a set of hoof cuffs; twirling them around he looks to Tinder, tossing the cuffs over to her, "Under the jurisdiction of the Lunar Guard, you are given the official authority to place a citizen's arrest. If you want to find out what happened to Foxtrot, that's fine, but I expect you to do your part. What's your name anyway?"

Tinder catches the cuffs with her magic and stares at them, this is not something she's done before. The only time she's touched hoofcuffs in the past is when she would get arrested, never in a million years did she ever think she'd have the power to arrest anyone. She looks back up at Ebony and nods, "I'll do my part, I promise. And the names Tinder."

Broadshield and the two lieutenants prepare their gear, each of them wielding a katana and a wakizashi, several throwing knives, and all of them putting on their armor (improved Royal Guard armour with dragon scales inserted/fitted to give maximum protection while maintaining as much mobility as possible) "I've organised for any available Equinox forces and Royal Guard in Canterlot to be on a look out for this V.I.P. I suggest we hurry, our forces in Saddle Arabia have reported that the situation there is deteriorating, its chaos within the government, and if we don't act soon, we could be looking at a civil war in Saddle Arabia, or even worse, war between Saddle Arabia and Equestria." After preparing all of their gear, the trio of ponies wait at the door, waiting for Ebony and Tinder

"Mrs. Amore Cadenza are you sure you want to be taking over some duties for Celestia?" A pony with glasses levitating a clip board in front of her asked.

"Yes I'm sure. Please, you can call me Cadance and Celestia is buried with paperwork and I am here to help her out. So I will, whatever that task might be I'll get it done," Cadnace's horn glowed as she enters the room with Ebony, Tinder, and Broadshield.

"Captain," She nods at Ebony. "What... is going on here?"

Tinder is becoming more nervous with every new  person coming in, really wishing that she hadn't stolen that stuff on the way here. She nods at the princess as she enters and then looks back at Ebony, waiting to see how he responds to this. She doesn't even want to look at the others, fearing they will see the nervousness in her eyes.

As Princess Cadence enters the room, Ebony giver her a quick salute, "Your highness, I wasn't expecting you here. Long story short ma'am, we're to retrieve a unicorn named Foxtrot who has information about the recently ended civil conflict in Saddle Arabia. Although he worked there through a third party, his associations to the crown may render Equestria liable for the flooding of one of their agricultural towns. If the citizens find this out, they may push towards the option of war with us." The captain looks to the others as he continues, "Our lead is an earth pony, dark coat, green eyes, female, goes by the name of Nivalia. She may know where our target is, but we have to hurry; it's confirmed there are other parties looking for him as well."

Broadshield salutes Cadence as she enters the room. While Ebony was explaining the situation to the Princess, he glanced over at Tinder, noticing that she was looking nervous, probably because of the Princess he thought to himself. When he finished, he said to the Princess "Princess Cadence, I didn't expect to see you so soon, if only the circumstances now are not so serious. If I may add to what Ebony has said, Equinox forces are in Saddle Arabia, monitoring the situation. The situation there isn't good, the government is in chaos, still trying to recover from its previous civil conflict, if their citizens find out about Foxtrot's involvement, another civil war may arise, or even worse, they may want to go to war with us."
"Foxtrot, with Nivalia, I actually saw her at a photo shoot before coming here. I don't remember everything, but I think I remember that another mare came up to her telling her that Foxtrot was in the city, she then left to go find him." He said to Ebony

"Goodness... Celestia has been buried with paperwork..." The princess then nodded. "I will help you then. This is for the sake of saving thousands of lives."

"Cadance we cannot allow you to be in danger!" The assistant argued.

"You go back to take care of the rest of the duties in this castle. I can handle myself." Cadance said in a determined voice. "That is an order."

"But... fine..." The assistant walked out of the room.

"Let's not waste time. Broadshield has a good lead it seems like. I am new to this whole situation so I will listen to you Captain." Cadance gave a slight bow.
