A nice quiet day, not a disturbance to be found. Xion smiled as she walked down the street, taking in the fresh air on the outskirts of the city, glancing about. To anyone not already familiar with her she'd be something of bizarre sight, a figure in a black coat with an ominious hood obscuring her facial features entirely. Any intimidation effect due to this however, was somewhat offset by the fact that she was still a couple of inches shy of four and a half feet even with the heels on her boots taken into account.

*CRASH*

She came to a sudden stop, rapidly turning towards the source of the noise as the sound of shattered glass rang out, quickly spotting a pair of figures carrying duffel bags sprinting out of a broken store window and towards a set of stairs to the rooftops. "STOP, THIEF."

Urrrrgh on the one hand technically it was Lunar Shields job to do something in situations like this.

On the other hand, she was literally right there and it wasn't like she didn't have the training and experience... Who knew how far they'd get before an officer could actually arrive.

Making up her mind quickly, she broke into a run herself, making for the stairs after the criminals. "There goes this being a quiet day..." She thought to herself, albeit with more amusement than annoyance.

Fight, X! For everlasting peace!

As far as X was aware, one of the best ways one could learn as much information as possible about a culture in as short a time span as could be afforded was to simply spend time among their populace and experience everything that someone from said culture went through on a daily basis first hand. On top of this, there was a certain addictive factor to learning more about this fascinating society, thusly every time X told himself after checking something new out that it would be the last thing he’d inspect before finding an appropriate residence and getting his new life together… suddenly there was just one more thing that he needed to check out before he did so. Rinse and repeat for most of the day.

The hunter allowed his thoughts to flow freely until they were interrupted by an unusually out of place crashing noise. Instinctively, X’s right hand shifted into buster form and directed itself towards the direction of the noise, though he was surprised to see that the source of the noise was actually relatively far away: It was a pair of thieves trying to escape with bagfuls of goods! X realized that it wasn’t his job anymore to defend everything and everyone (in fact, there already seemed to be somebody hot on their trail; a short hooded figure), but surely a good civilian couldn’t be faulted for trying to aid justice, right?

X decided that it would be a terrible idea to shoot at them blindly though. Instead, he opted to make use of his dash boots to quickly zoom in on the pair, initiating a new dash with every step as the last one faded out. Upon reaching the set of stairs that the thieves had begun to frantically ascend, X realized it would take too long to follow them the same way, and decided to instead climb the wall parallel to them. Once he was at the same height as the thieves, he jump-dashed forward, knocking one of them against the stairs “Gotcha!” As he held the criminal down though, their partner was swiftly getting away. If he let go of this one to chase after the other, however, he would no doubt attempt to get away again. It seemed as if catching the second thief would be the hooded figure’s job.

Huh, one down one to go, pretty quickly too. Still, Xion had her own tricks as well. Utilizing a bit of magic, she sped of her movements for a brief dash that let her practically glide across the ground and close the distance, blurring past X and his captive in an instant. A second dash and she appeared in front of the other thief, clotheslining them with a punch to the gut.

As they collapsed onto the ground she waved her hand. "Blizzard." A coating of magical ice covered her targets feet and pinned them to the ground, leaving them to futiley struggle as she glanced over towards X and promptly sat on the thiefs back, pinning them further. "Uh. Hi, how are you doing? You're... X right?"

"Get off me you bitch." The thief managed to draw a sword, previously hidden by his cloak and take an extremely awkward swing towards Xion. The replica seemed to see it coming however, her Keyblade appearing in a flash in time to block the attack harmlessly. The weapon was ornate, angelic in appearance with a keychain dangling off the handle that ended in a simple star shaped trinket.

"Language." She admonished before disarming them with a jerk of her blade, sending the sword clattering onto the roof nearby. "Seriously, you're a bit outclassed here. You might want to just stay quiet and not add attempted murder to the theft."

“Huh?” This woman knew his name? Before he could ask for an explanation, the thief she was pinning down attempted to stab her. X raised his buster to fire a couple of warning shots, but once again his action was cut short, this time by the quick flick of the girl’s oddly shaped sword. “Well, that was certainly something.” He commented offhandedly as he lowered his buster anticlimactically. “Yes, I’m X, but… I don’t think we’ve met before. How do you know my name?”

The struggling of the body under his own reminded him, however, that there were more pressing matters right now. X looked out from his current spot all the way at the owner of the store these thieves had attacked, currently standing just outside of their own shop. “Don’t worry, we got them!” He informed as he took the duffel bag from the thief’s weakened hand. “We should probably get an officer here soon…”

Xion's hooded gaze turned back to X, surprise evident in her tone. "Huh? You're pretty well kno- ohhhhhh you must be a new one. Huh, that doesn't happen too often. Well. I guess we have some time before some actual police officers get here. Long story short, I'm Xion, nice to meet you. I've been around the multiverse in... uh... one form or another for a really long time. And I've never met you, but I've heard of you. If not... you? Exactly? Um..." She fumbled awkwardly.

She raised a finger, pausing for a moment before continuing on. "Ok no that got too vague and complicated. So, you know how the multiverse can pull people in from all sorts of different times and universes? Like... two people from the same world can be here, but from centuries apart?" She spread out her hands wide, eliciting a groan of pain from the thief she was sitting on as she shifted her weight on his back. "Sometimes the same... person, gets brought here multiple times, but they're both from barely different alternate universes. Another version of you has been here before, and they were a pretty well known member of the Altruistic Valorians, one of the factions that got merged into the Celestial Guardians..."

"Um... I've also met Roll Light, although... huh, don't think I've ever met her, and your, brother Rock... Weird. But, anyway, the other... you isn't really around anymore, no idea what happened to him. You being here probably means he's just gone though, when this happens it's usually only after someone dies or leaves the multiverse entirely. I guess whatever the multiverse is doesn't want multiple copies of the same person or-" She trailed off, falling into a weak, somewhat forced chuckle, her tone turning a little somber. "Mostly. Doesn't want multiple copies of the same person, anyway."

“I… see.” X was no stranger to the workings of the multiverse theory (though he supposed at this point it was just the multiverse principle), but it was still bizarre to hear these facts stated out-loud. He was hoping to get away from the hustle of popularity in the multiverse, but between the revelation of this alternate self of his and of the fact that his future self was some sort of important government figure in one of the multiverse-orbiting worlds… fate just did not want to give him a break, did it?

“Wait, you’ve met Rock and Roll?” Now that certainly peaked his attention! Public records of his creator’s feats were plenty prior to the Eurasia incident, as were the names of his creations – Rock and Roll included – and of course, he still had his own limited memories of him, but learning more about his creator and siblings as people rather than as names on a databank was always something he’d regretted not being able to do. “Is Dr. Light here in the multiverse as well?”

“O-oh, uh…” X realized he was rambling on at this point. “Sorry, Dr. Light’s a bit of a sensitive subject. It’s nice to meet you, Xion! Thanks for the important information.”
