Foxtrot and Nivalia look around as they settle in, sitting in one of the 12 chairs on the table. The unicorn remains silent, his eyes fixed on a single point on the map, one surprisingly not marked off or noted for any reason. Looking around the room he tales a deep breath as he tries to formulate a plan to take down the Directors. It's odd, going after the ones that trained him, supplied his gear, signed his paycheck. The difficulty is increased knowing that they need to be taken alive, an obstacle he knows they will take advantage of. The apprehension process must be quick, their imprisonment immediate. The concepts causes his scarred ear to flutter, getting the attention of the disguised changeling next to him. He looks over to see some of her concern in her expression, but also fatigue; she's been through enough already trying to break the programming his mind has gone through. Magically and mentally she may not even be in the right shape to come along, although she would disagree of course. Foxtrot gives her a warm smile before turning to the table in front of them; 5 targets, possible security, expected collateral damage. The real question is how much can be contained when it's all said and done. And when it is done, that's a whole matter entirely. The 26 would... No, will get disbanded after this with no formal leadership. At this point though it wouldn't even be necessary, the exact numbers of this small group is still unknown. More than likely all assets will be cut loose, all resources split evenly, and all contacts with outside suppliers eliminated. This won't be an easy task, and it sure as hell won't be easy after its all said and done.
When the day needs saving, you don't need a hero. You need a professional.

Monochrome walked out from his office and straight into Broadshield. Straightening himself, he gave a salute, before returning to a relaxed stance. "Oh hey sir your back! How did the visit go? Did you see the princesses? Was there any good food? And why are there numerous unidentified civilians in the meeting room that Pastel keeps reorganising?" Monochrome said at lightning speed. "Oh, and I got that note you asked for. Pretty interesting how we've missed it for so long, eh sir!"

Broadshield calmly and patiently waits for Monochrome to finish what he needs to say, which didn't take very long. "Thank you for asking Monochrome. It has been a while. Remind me again what note I asked for, its been a long day." he says.

"The black market's storage warehouse, of course! I mean, a building that menacing is bound to have something suspicious." Monochrome said speedily. "So what was it you wanted me for, sir?"

Tinder gets up and quickly moves into the corner of the room, laying down there to try to relax for a bit before more guards enter the room. She sighs a bit and covers her head with her hooves, trying to ignore the memories, trying to keep herself composed.

"Right, right, of course. If I remember correctly, an entrance to the Black Market was somewhere in the Central Park, and its warehouse was located on the East Docks. Thank you for checking. I wanted you to help us on this operation. The civilian Foxtrot and I will help explain everything to you. Go to the meeting room, I'll meet you there. I just need to find a few more soldiers to help us." he says.

Nivalia let's out a yawn and fold her hooves over the table; despite the rest she's had her eyelids still remain heavy. Looking over to Foxtrot she finds him with the same deep thought expression on his face. The burrowing of his brows, the fluttering of his ear; if it's an idea, she knows it's gonna be good. Her gaze wanders to the map, the things she's seen Foxtrot do while sifting through his mind was overwhelming. The indoctrination, the testing, everything seemed hard to believe; especially from The 26. Another yawn escapes her before a hoof on her shoulder jolts her awake. Glancing over the changeling finds her sibling looking over with a concerned look as well. He knows how drained she is, and she knows just how dangerous the next few hours may become. Her hoof falls onto his as she smiles and nods, a silent confirmation of his unspoken request. Despite the worry she herself has, sitting this one out would be the best course to take. With the exchange with Foxtrot over, Nivalia simply waits for the others to arrive.

"No problemo, sir. I'll help out any way that I can." Monochrome gave a salute to Broadshield before heading into the meeting room and taking a seat.

Tinder lifts one of her hooves slightly to look out to see who just entered, seeing that it was a guard she didn't know she quickly covers her head with her hooves once again. She curls up a bit to try to get as far into the corner as she could, waiting for the one guard here that she trusts to come back into the room. Taking this time of silence to attempt to get the memories that are drifting through her mind to settle down, but being in Manehatten again has kind of rattled her a bit it seems.

After a few minutes has past, Broadshield enters the meeting room with three other Equinox soldiers, all of whom sit down in seats, casually eyeing the civilians. Noticing Tinder, Broadshield makes his way over to her. "Hey Tinder, you alright?" he asks. Ever since they got to Manehatten, he's noticed that Tinder hasn't been doing alright. Wanting to make sure she's fine before the whole mission starts, he decides to stay next to her until she's calmed down.

Tinder lifts her hooves to look at Broadshield as he talks to her, she nods a tiny bit and wipes at her eyes to remove the litte bit of tear that had formed, "I'm fine. My head is just a bit muddled right now, I'm not used to being home. I'll be fine on the mission, I promise."

Seeing Tinder alright, brought relief to Broadshield, seeing how his friend was alright. "Thats good to hear, I'm pretty sure it must be hard to come back here. Just take a few deep breaths and when you're ready, come take a seat. If you need anything else, don't hesitate to let me know." he says, before getting up and taking a seat near Tinder. "Alright, now that we're all here, we're going to need a plan to take down the 26. Fox, I'll leave it to you to explain the situation and the plan." he says.

With everyone ready, Foxtrot nods and takes a deep breath as he prepares to inform the group. "Alright, as you all know, we're here to apprehend the Directors of The 26 for their involvement in creating a civil conflict in Saddle Arabia. There are five of them: Zulu, Romeo, Juliet, Bravo, and Yankee. All are very experienced field agents and skilled combatants in their craft. They will be having their quarterly meeting to discuss financials for the next few months." The unicorn gets up and walks over to the map if the city. With his hoof he points to a building sitting along a small bay leading to the sea. "As always they go to The Four Elements business complex. A 100 story skyscraper overlooking the scenic waterfront; and as always they will be having the meeting on the top floor suite." Foxtrot returns to the table, his tone becoming more stern, "I won't lie, I expect a fight, so our first priority is reducing unnecessary casualties. Second is to locate and isolate the Directors, apprehend them, and put them in a cell as fast as possible. They may have additional security, so speed is of the essence; we will need to employ more creative measures for their arrest. Broadshield, I'm guessing a place this large has holding cells, as well as at least five cuffs for these guys. What I'm thinking is enchanting the cuffs with instant, one way teleportation. Slap them on a Director and they immediately pop into a vacant cell. But like I said, reducing casualties takes priority. I'll need to have Equinox sweep the building to evacuate all civilians and form a 100 meter perimeter around the building. From there we head up the elevators to the top, apprehend them, and send then right to their cell." Foxtrot pauses and looks at the table as his ears fold back. "This will he easier said than done, more than likely they will resist and attack. Be prepared to defend yourselves and those around you..." The unicorn takes a deep breath and looks up, "I can't promise that we'll all make it out alive. But if we stay focused, alert, and have each other's back, we sure as hell have a good shot. Any questions?"

Tinder calms down a bit as Foxtrot is talking, finally getting composed enough to go sit with everyone. She sits down in the seat next to Broadshield and listens intently to Fox's plan, nodding slightly every now and then, trying to take it all in and actually remember it. When asked if there is any questions she just shakes her head, not having any questions for him about this, she gets it as much as she can.

Monochrome puts his hoof up. "Actually, yeah one question. What if there's a secret escape route out of the building? Or a dragon? Or a secret escape route guarded by a dragon?" Pulling his hoof down, he pondered for a moment. "Wait. No. Top floor. Not many ways to do a secret exit from that height... Unless they have some advanced illusion magic, that is. Or a portal. Are any of them capable unicorns? Because if so an anti-magic barrier might be needed. Which would mess with the handcuffs... dammit why is nothing ever simple. Ah well I'm sure we'll figure it out."
