Nivalia looks over to Broadshield, his concerns quite applicable to their situation. "I know it's risky, but the only other way would be to use the methods the Directors used. Unfortunately none of us know how to do that, and we don't have the time to learn it." She looks over to Foxtrot, "We can restrain him first, put him in cuffs and be ready for anything. Any signs of kickback and I can ease off. I'll be careful, he is my brother after all."

Tinder nods a couple times, "I think we should do it. Breaking whatever they have done to Fox is worth the risk, we can't walk in there with the risk of him attacking us. If anything happens while you do this we can subdue him I'm sure." She smiles slightly at them both, checking again that her bag is securely closed because she doesn't want her stuff flying out if something happens.

This want a situation Broadshield wanted to find himself in. But they had a point, as much as he hated to admit. "Ok, we'll do it," he said in a defeated tone. "But just remember to be careful and be quiet. There are still passengers loading up and we don't want to cause a ruckus and some stampede. So go for it, but be careful." As he says this, he traces into his bag and brings out some of the throwing knives he brought with him from his bag and holds onto them, hoping he won't have to use it, unless worse comes to worse.

Ocean got up from where he was seated and boarded the train, keeping an eye out for anyone who could possibly recognise him. Finding his seat, he looked up to see the military stallion who was in his bakery earlier. Just great. Ocean thought to himself. Let's just lay low until I get to Manehattan, then make a beeline to Central Park. Not wanting to be recognised, he pulled out a pair of sunglasses from his mane, and put them on in order to hide his eyes, and was extra careful not to speak, lest the stallion recognise his voice.
Don't get washed away.

Foxtrot nods, making sure he has nothing on him that can be used as a weapon. Once he's cleared he takes a deep breath and relaxes; emptying his mind of noise. "Alright Niv, I'm set to go. Do it."

Nivalia nods, her horn glowing as she looks at Foxtrot right in his eyes. Her jade pupils glow, the unicorn's also changing in tint. A moment of silence passes until she begins to speak. "Foxtrot, can you hear me?" He nods, waiting for her to continue. "Good. How do you feel?"

"Not bad actually." Foxtrot answers, relaxing in his seat. "I guess you have been improving your technique. When do we get into the deep mind probing?"

Nivalia chuckles, "Soon, just getting you acclimated to the changes. When I go full power you may lose consciousness; if so then we've gotten you activated. Just keep your mind clear. Let's speak to Agent 04."

"Ok, just make sure I don't do anything rash." The unicorn replies.

"Alright, alright. Let's begin..." The changeling's horn glows even brighter as Foxtrot becomes still. His irises widen as his thoughts silence as well as the room around him. "Now, the only one you hear is me. Fox, there's someone else we need to meet, you know who. Let us meet him." Foxtrot cringes, putting a hoof to his head. After a time his breathing becomes heavy, his hoof drops to his side. "Hey, who are you?"

Foxtrot looks around, rather confused as if he never recognised those around him. "Agent... 04."

"Good. How do you feel? I know a sense of confusion may be present, but anything else? Fear, anger?" Nivalia asks. The unicorn readjusts himself and shakes his head. "I see, it would make sense that they would condition those feeling out. Do you know how to use your magic?"

Foxtrot nods, "Of course. Transition through the hooves, apply as needed. I'm currently field testing a few others."

Nivalia nods, "Alright, and you recall all of your assignments? What you did before and after?" The agent at first appears as if he's going to nod again before she adds o to it, "Not including debriefing and preparations." Foxtrot pauses, then shakes his head, looking rather uneasy. "Agent, do you know of any of us are? Have you met anyone named Foxtrot?"

"No I..." Foxtrot hesitates, realizing his own lack of perspective on the situation. "Don't know any of them. Just... my assignments. What's going on? I should've gotten my orders by now."

"Relax, that's your order." Nivalia replies, her breathing beginning to be heavy. "How many triggers are you aware of?"

"86." Foxtrot replies. "I was executing number 74 last time I saw you all. "

"Well I need you to forget them. All of them, can you do that?" The changeling asks. The unicorn nods scratching his head. "Good. Close your eyes and do that. Rest for a minute then let us know when you're done." Foxtrot lasts co on his seat and closes his eyes. Nivalia's horn ceases glowing as she catches her breath. "Ok, part one is complete."

As Nivalia works her magic, Broadshield intently watches the whole procedure, making sure to not disturb them as it may cause something to happen. it took all of Broadshield's willpower to not do or say anything, especially to Nivalia. He was well aware that this was probably the only way they could break the Phantom Initiative's grip on him, but he still didn't like how she was using changeling magic on him. He never liked changelings anyway, especially after that day. Pushing those thoughts to the back of his head, he realizes that Nivalia chose to take a break. "So what's part one exactly, and what are you going to do next?" he quietly asks Nivalia to be sure he doesn't disturb Fox

Tinder stays silent as she watches this take place, her hoof still resting on her dagger. She nods when Broad asks the question,  wondering the same thing herself. She also looks at what's going on and wonders to herself if what Niv is doing would help recover lost memories as well.

Nivalia takes a deep breath, "Part one was finding out what were dealing with. 86 triggers, damn... this Phantom Initiative must've been extensive; regardless, disabling them should allow him to fight the Directors without risk of being controlled." Foxtrot remains silent throughout, appearing as if he's in a deep slumber. "Agent 04 also knows how to harness his magic through his hoofs, another useful tool Fox would love to have but doesn't know how to do. For part two, I'm going to merge the two personas into one. Foxtrot has already gone through enough emotional trauma to remember his assignments, so I can't bring him back to consciousness again. That's why I'm starting with Agent 04; he already knows all of his assignments and is emotionally adapted to them; from there it's filling in the blanks he can't remember when he's deactivated. The end result is a whole personality, Foxtrot will finally remember everything; maybe not all at once, but eventually he will."

"Done." Agent 04 says, his eyes opening once more. "Triggers are cleared, I don't recall any others. So, what are you all talking about? Who the hay is Foxtrot?"

Nivalia looks over to her brother and leans forward, "He's an amazing pony. Would you like to meet him?" Agent 04 pauses, looking over to the other for a moment before turning back to the changeling with a shrug. "Good, but first, I need you to try something." Foxtrot's guitar levitates over to him. "Try to play this real quick. Nothing fancy, just a simple tune." The unicorn looks at the instrument for a moment, then takes it with his magic. Bringing it to his hooves, he attempts to play a melody, but fails terribly. Nivalia's horn glows as she plucks it from his hooves, "Ok, just wanted to check. It appears skillsets are divided by personas as well. Now what I want you to do is lay back on your seat. Close your eyes, and take deep breaths; you're going to see memories that may not be familiar at first. Give it time, and soon everything will make sense."

The agent looks rather concerned, not used to this kind of interaction; still, he nods and does what he's told. Nivalia takes one more deep breath before fully concentrating. Here horn glows a bright green, illuminating the whole room as her eyes become bright green. Foxtrot's horn also glows green as his minds begins to play a mental slideshow of his life; memories of joyous and horrendous occasions fill his vision, causing him to lightly jerk his head away from time to time. Still, he remains steadfast as his two separate identities begin to meld. As more recent events are unfolded, the unicorn grits his teeth; the memories of Agent 04's assignments become known, the acts to complete them appear to be the worst than anything the unicorn has experienced before. Coupled with the events that ended his career in the guard, and the subsequent downward spiral afterward forces him to twitch and jerk to resist these new thoughts. Nivalia herself appears to become pushed to her limits as well, beads of sweat trickling down her face as she tries to remain in control. Suddenly, it all stops. Both participants fall in their seats, knocking their things onto the floor. The train whistle sounds off, a shudder of the train is felt before it begins to leave the station, on it's way to Manehattan.

After Nivalia's response, Broadshield nods a few times to show that he understands. Upon Nivalia continuing, Broadshield watches intently and silently at the whole process. Eventually, Nivalia and Foxtrot both collapse, right as the train begins to move. Getting onto his hooves, he moves over to Nivalia, making sure he doesn't trip over anything. "Oh jeez, are you alright?" he asks Nivalia, unsure whether or not she is conscious.

Tinder stands up as soon as she sees Fox collapse, she leaves her dagger on her seat and quickly moves over to him to try to see if he's okay. "Fox? You awake buddy?" She is very obviously worried about her friend as she stares at him and tries to figure out what she can do to help.

Both Foxtrot and Nivalia barely move as they try to regain control of their thoughts; the unicorn simply decides to lie down on the bench and take deep breaths. Nivalia however, manages to sit up, "I- I'm fine. Just exhausted after that and what's happened so far." She looks over to Foxtrot, "Give him some time, it might take longer than the last time for him to sort things out in his head. I would keep an eye on him, see how he reacts when he starts regaining full consciousness. For now all we can really do is make sure he continues breathing and just enjoy the ride, it's quite a trip to Manehattan so for now we all can just rest."

Tinder listens to Niv and nods, moving over to grab her dagger off her seat and lay it in her bag. "I'll keep a watch on him, to make sure he's okay." She goes back over and sits on the floor in front of Fox's seat, watching him and letting out a little yawn, "It's not like I'm gonna be able to sleep here anyway."

Broadshield nods at Tinders comment before turning to Nivalia. "She's right, you two should rest, me and Tinder will keep watch." He says to Nivalia.
