  1. “Yeah, my name’s Kataware though I guess Kirbs calls my Kat for short.” Kataware returned Spencer’s smile and turned to face Kirbs. “Yeah, I’m not one to especially like the cold but this is bearable.” Kataware guided her hand towards the surrounding forests. “Helps to stave off the chilly winds.” However, as Kataware heard the sound of crunching snow as Shiro started to run off. She was about to chase after the boy before he came back willingly without prompt. Actions speak louder than words, don’t they. “Shiro, give me your hand for a second.” Kataware procured a small piece of twine from her inventory and started tying it around his index finger, while leaning into his ear. “If you ever feel anxious or something, feel free to play with it. If you untie it and, I’ll take that as you want to leave.” Kataware secured the knot and looked towards the other members of the group. “So what brings the rest of you here?” @Spencer @Kirbs @Huginn

    [F1-PP] Getting the Gang Together

    Kataware watched as an older woman about the same height as her and wearing a more revealing outfit sat down next to her quickly followed by a face and voice very familiar. She offered a handshake to the older woman and hugged Kirbs. “Nice to see you again, but do I really not seem like the type of person to do this?” Kataware gestured towards the various plans strewn about. “I thought it came across clear that I’m someone to plan thoroughly before engaging in something.” However, Kataware noticed that there was still an empty seat around the table. Hopefully someone arrives soon. In the meantime though, Kataware procured two glasses of water and offered it to the two other girls. “Please, make yourself comfortable. I’m planning on waiting a few minutes before I begin to discuss plans and strategies just in case someone else shows up. I’d rather not repeat myself if possible.” @Akariah @tricolor_mina @Kirbs

    [F04 Event] Christmas Extravaganza 2018

    As soon as Kataware got the message from Ayano, she began to get ready. Although events like these weren’t really her preferred place to be during Christmas, she took the opportunity to start networking. However, she wasn’t expecting Ayano to come up to her as soon as she entered the plaza and give her 45k Col with the minimal instructions of just to buy a present. Although, Kataware did follow her instructions. As she walked up to Benny, she had noticed that she could buy any item that she could use at this current point in time. However, her eyes ended up lingering over the Hammerspace Backpack. Reading the item catalog, she knew that it was a powerful item worth its cost and decided to buy it. Not for herself though. As a tank she could probably weave in a few items within a fight, but she knew the plans Ayano had for her own build. Paying the 45k Col to Benny, she grabbed one of the Hammerspace Backpacks and walked over to Ayano. Whatever gift Ayano would have given her, she would refuse it adamantly while offering her own. “Merry Christmas Ayano.” « Bought one Hammerspace Backpack (-45k Col) » « Offered Hammerspace Backpack to @Ayano Tateyama »

    [F1-PP] We're in This by Myself <<TFFLAF>>

    Kataware followed Ayano who appeared to be putting on an air in hopes of portraying herself as more courageous. However, Kataware chose to remain oblivious about whatever issues the young girl may have been facing. After all, everyone had their own issues, Kataware simply chose to believe that anyone could get through them. Whether it may be a change in mindset or a new approach, anyone can get through any rut of their life. On their trek to the South Gate, which was the farthest from their initial position, Kataware had to catch up to Ayano a couple of times. The heavy armor didn’t weigh her down much nor her lack of stamina, but it was a testament to Ayano’s eagerness. Kataware was walking as a leisurely place as she wasn’t really scared about what was going to happen during the night. She took the time to observe mob patterns and essentially made a little route for her to go through. As they reached the gate, Kataware spoke up. “I’ll take lead from here. I know a certain place where we’ll be safe.”

    Kataware watched as Ayano seemingly wanted to start the quest for the both of them, but just as quickly as the young girl approached the counter she almost scurried away from Zackariah (who was still oblivious to the two players). ”I’ve said nothing. Kataware rubbed Ayano’s back to help soothe the young girl. She’s quite timid. Kataware approached Zackariah to start the quest. She zoned out through the speech, knowing that it will always be the same. Eventually, the pop-up appeared to take the quest. «Accept The First Few Lessons are Free Quest?» Nearby Players: 1 Take solo? o [ ] Take with nearby players? o [ ] Take with party members? o ( Confirm? ) [ ] ( Decline? ) Kataware clicked the second option and confirmed it. She looked over to Ayano and saw the menu show up for her. ”Just letting you know, even if you accept it, you can back out at any time. Even after we’ve started.”

    [F2-PP] After All This Time

    Kataware was surprised to see a sudden expression of worriness on the boy. After all, it wasn't him who was in danger here. Kataware accepted all the risks and wasn't willing to come back without any sort of reward. At any time, Kataware could've been killed, but she wasn't. Kataware whispered under her breath, barely audible to even herself. "I knew and know there's still some hope for you." Kataware got off of Pinball and lend her hand to help the boy up. "I'm doing whatever it takes." Kataware took out the notebook and thumbed through the pages until she found the page on Pinball. She held reservations against Pinball, of course, after all the Monument of Life spoke bounds.Pinball had killed Sugutsuya, but Kataware didn’t know the circumstances. There were no documentation on what the Reason for Death is when a green player killed an orange player. Until then, Kataware held out all reservations. And if Pinball was a player killer and thus his cursor turned orange, then so be it. “More now than ever, people need to work together.” @Pinball

    [F2-PP] After All This Time

    Kataware was already unequipping her armor to chase after Pinball. Her plan was always to be right behind Pinball and she could barely just keep up the pace alongside Pinball's charge skill. Kataware wasn't going to let go of the orange player already. She pushed aside the guards and actually used them to propel herself forward bit by bit. Each guard yelled out the same thing in the same voice. "What are you doing? Get out of the way!" I hate this game... Kataware kept running, trying to chase after Pinball. After all, if they wanted to clear this game, it would have to take every single one of them. Only those who never wanted to leave could be imprisoned. Kataware rushed towards Pinball and tackled the boy. They rolled down the mountain, Kataware wasn't going to let go of Pinball. As they stopped, Kataware inned down Pinball (although she wasn't strong enough to stop him from getting up) and stared him into the eye. "Congratulations! Everyone's made mistakes. Now, if you're not going to listen to me, at least try to avoid floors 5, 9, 14, and 16. I can at least try to distract the people chasing you." Kataware took one hand off of Pinball's arm and sent the boy a friend request. "Now accept it. If you're gonna leave again, you can at least message me." @Pinball

    Kataware smiled gently to Ayano and gave a soft touch to her forearm to reassure her. ”You’re fine. It’s fine.” Kataware was a patient woman, enough so that a simple mistake like that wouldn’t get her to act any different towards someone. After all, Kataware recognized that it must have taken Ayano some time to prepare her greetings. Kataware stood up from the bench and walked towards the nondescript shopfront. There wasn’t much other than a few vials and also a purple-ish gas coming from underneath the door. Kataware grabbed the handle on the door, getting herself ready to breath in the noxious fumes that she had already experienced once. However, it didn’t seem like the effect would never go away. After all, Kayaba seemed enough like a sadist that he would ever add a sliding scale for tolerance to these types of useless sensory attacks. ”Shall we?” @Ayano Tateyama
  9. After many failed attempts to attempt to start the tutorial questline, Kataware had enough and wanted to get more serious applicants she trusted. On the list, she had found person with an apparent narcisstic behavior, two twins who never did anything apart from each other, and also a very shy, timid girl. Of course, she decided to go with the last one, believing that the others would prove to be more troublesome. She waited patiently clad in her armor, waiting on a bench nearby the shop they were to enter and undertake the quest. Kataware wondered if the girl was going to be a good fit. After all, there personalities had such a stark contrast like they were the embodiment of night and day. However, she seemed dependable and more willing to learn. In a sense, Kataware wanted to take this new girl under her wing. Hopefully, their partnership would last long and be strong. @Ayano Tateyama Battle Stats:

    [F2-PP] After All This Time

    Kataware rushed to the doorway and pushed Pinball back to the interior, not letting him outside of the shack. Not letting him out of her sights. Not just yet. "Pinball, when I said no one. I meant no one. Not even you. At least, not yet." Kataware intended to use up all of the time they both had. Sooner or later the guards were going to reach here, seeing as Pinball was still inside of a safezone. Kataware equipped her armor to give her the appearance of being stronger than she really was. Although, her eyes probably told everything. She was afraid. This was her only opportunity to help Pinball, and she didn't want it to go away. The guards would have to go through her to get to Pinball. And she was willing to do everything for that. Even if it meant becoming orange. "Let's start over, " Kataware relaxed, her figure and armor blocking the doorway. It'll be easier to protect him too. "My name's Kataware." She soon realized that Pinball might not recognize her, mainly from their short interaction. She was one of the few people who easily recalled faces and names. "Let me help." The sound of the guards running around began getting louder and louder. Escape was going to become impossible, she took out her dagger and her back now faced Pinball ready to face any guards that came through the alley. The sky grew darker as clouds passed over and it began to pour. Kataware gripped the dagger in her right hand. For the first time, she was afraid for what was going to happen. It frightened the small girl. "Please." @Pinball

    [F2-PP] After All This Time

    Katware turned her head towards Pinball with a blank expression. Her first time receiving a death threat in SAO, but not necessarily the first time in her life, each time baseless. The thought though that she could die without anyone knowing her exact cause of death (as she knew no one in the game) made her think, but it didn’t bother her much. After all, a death was a death. “I’m as safe as you are right now.” Kataware headed towards the shack and opened the door, inside was enough space for one person’s living quarters, two if you tried hard enough. There was some drawings on the walls from past inhabitants, and there was a makeshift nightstand from a log, but nothing that could be considered furniture. Kataware motioned for Pinball. “Come.” Kataware pulled down her hood on her green parka and unzipped the front revealing a white blouse. Wearing the parka for her more casual outfit has become a habit of hers now, ever since she visited the Fourth Floor more recently. It just feels more comfy. Kataware sat down on the ground inside of the shack, expecting Pinball to enter as well, and spoke absentmindedly. “My name’s Kataware, I’ve been looking for you for a long time. Same with a player known as Shark.” Kataware wasn’t going to divulge much information outside of this situation, but she wanted to ensure that Pinball didn’t think she was hunting orange players or, more specifically, him. Kataware’s usual, courteous smile was no where on her face. It was time for business, not customer service, and that meant being blunt about things. “You’ll have to explain everything to me if you want any chance of going anywhere. I can also provide protection for you.” Kataware stood up and put her back against the wall and bent her leg, resting it against the wall. “I’ll throw some people off, give them a set amount of floors it’ll take them lengths of time to check for you.” A bit less than the normal kindness she had, but she had some information she needed to extract and make sure that they each had enough time. After all, Kataware could still hear the guards looking for them. It wasn’t a matter of if they were found, it was a matter of when. And when it came down to it, she was more than willing to take her last resort and execute it. @Pinball

    [F2-PP] After All This Time

    Kataware led Pinball down the empty street, checking around the corners to make sure there were no guards. Her time was going to start running out as the guards were probably going to be barreling at them any second. She had a plan, but how willing was she to risk it? Kataware was aware of what she would be implicated with if she was found with Pinball. However, that didn’t matter to her. She kept turning around to make sure Pinball never left her. To Kataware, making sure Pinball was safe was the priority at this moment. A storm was coming. The low rumble of metal clinking against each other as the guards moved up and down. It was only a matter of time before the guards were to reach their location. Kataware looked around, and disconnected herself from her body for a second. She thought about every possibility. She almost had no choice. Kataware didn’t have time to explain again, and instinctively grabbed Pinball’s hand and led him down yet another alleyway. The only flooring was mud and at the end of the alley was a shack. It looked like someone’s attempt to create a makeshift housing, a poor one at that. But it would suffice. Kataware stayed at the entrance of the alley, making sure no guards came through. “Pinball, you’ll be safe. No one’s coming through here while I’m here with you. Just tell me what happened since the floor boss.” @Pinball
  13. “Sort of, if you can call someone who gathers information and is willing to give it out, then I guess you can sort of call me an info broker,” Kataware replied back to Kirbs. “Although my primary profession is being a Merchant although my shop’s not set up yet.” Kataware flips back to her notebook, checking the amount of days until completion and found a big checkmark with a single dot underneath. Low priority. “To be honest, I want to join the frontlines too, get them off of their butts and start getting them moving to clear out Aincrad. At this point, we’re all going to have been in here for a decade or longer.” Kataware walked in silence checking her notes, seeing if her plans were feasible. After all, she was barely effective in the first place today. When they reached Tolbana, the entirety the town was bustling with merchants and good food to eat. Kataware was partial to eating some ramen from a cart and motioned Kirbs to eat it. Kataware paid the shopkeep the required ramen and began to slurp the noodles. The warmth wasn’t quite as warm and the flavor was dulled but hey, she’d take it after that whole debacle. Wiping her mouth with her forearm, she motioned Kirbs to come over. “It’s pretty good, you should try some.” @Kirbs
  14. Kataware turned around and walked backwards like a sort of tour guide for Kirbs, occasionally checking behind her to make sure she wouldn’t end up crashing into an object. Although Katware wasn’t going to talk about the surroundings or the history of Aincrad, it was more about herself. “I just recently started getting into combat, gathering as much information that I could gather, no matter where the sources came. Confirming them is a bit more difficult, but I’m used to it.” Kataware looked back at her times of job hunting which no one prepared her for. Especially as someone who wanted to become a civil service worker, this made it more difficult for her to find ways to get into a job that most people would never want in the first place. “How about you?” Kataware eyed Kirbs up and down, from her demeanor she couldn’t be more than a young teenager. Often irritable and very hyper. Not that I mind working with her. She seems enthusiastic. @Kirbs
  15. Kataware teleported to the First Floor, after the debacle on the Second. However, the day wasn’t ending there. She saw the group of players gathering around the bulletin board, and she was surprised at the speed that the players involved have done. Of course, there was no surprise that a lot of people would be curious, but Kataware had a feeling that she would know one name up there. Walking up, Kataware politely asked players to move aside and shoved at times when necessary. She stopped in front of the bulletin board and looked at the poster. To no surprise, she saw Pinball’s name. Although it took Kataware a lot less time to read the entire board, she intended on acting as if she was analyzing the poster. After being satisfied Kataware turned towards the self-proclaimed chief of the APD. “I got some information on Pinball. Word is he’s planning to retreat to and consistently switch between floors 5, 9, 14, and 16.” Telling this lie and losing the trust of the players around her would be worth it. All of this seemed like it was done on impulses, Pinball turning orange, Pinball attacking a player, and especially the creation of the APD. Kataware was all for laws and order, but this wasn’t the moment for it. “Kataware, investigator, attempting to become a renown info-broker. It may be in the best interest to split up into parties to see which one he bounced to first.” Kataware transitioned into an at-ease stance. (( It is my assumption that this thread is after After All This Time )). @Hestia
