The team is working on repairing the dojo after yesterday’s attack.
Cypress: I never was good with a hammer. My dad always made me just apply the plaster…
Alyssa: Cypress, this is drywall. You’re not supposed to hammer it..
Charles: Just let me do it..
Perez: No need! I’ve invented my magnum opus!
Cypress: Your what?
Perez: My magnum opus! A robot that can make simple repairs and also assist us in field missions! Please welcome our new fifth member, the Black Dragon!
A whirring is heard, as a robotic ninja staggers into the room.
Black Dragon: Black Dragon Mark One ready to assist you, Master Perez..
Perez: Now Black Dragon, repair the wall!
Black Dragon: Processing command, “Repair wall…” Initiating Response024a.. “Indeed, Master Perez.”
The robot dashes around, repairing the wall quickly.
Cypress: Wellllll…. since we have nothing to do… who wants to go play video games?!
The team rushes off, leaving the Black Dragon alone.
Black Dragon: No commands detected. Shutting down…
The robot enters sleep mode, as a jolt of electricity explodes from the wall in which it’s plugged in.
Black Dragon: INTRUDER DETECTED! EVASIVE MANUEVER ALPHA! INTR-
The robot’s voice shuts off, as the body is taken over by one of Sigma’s computers.
Sigma: Kobashigawa, are we in?
Kobashigawa: Yes sir! Ever since you told me to hack into this robot, I’ve been attempting to crack this code! It should do whatever you tell it to now, sir!
Sigma: Alright! Now, it is time to rid myself of those ninja once and for all.
Perez: Alright, now that we’re done with our video games, let’s check up on the Black Dragon!
Perez fiddles with a joystick, as the robot is heard thundering down the hall.
Perez: Hmm.. odd. Usually it comes right through the-
A missile fires through the wall, missing Perez by an inch.
Perez: Or it could just make a new one. That’s cool.
Cypress: Perez, can’t you stop it?
Perez: No! It seems like it’s out of my control!
Alyssa: Fine, then we’ll make it stop. Perez, Charles, evasive maneuver alpha!
Charles and Perez nod, and jump into position. All three charge at the robot.
Charles: Sorry to do this, buddy.
Perez: Don’t be sorry! Kill it before it kills us!
Charles rips the robot’s head off, sending it crashing to the floor.
Cypress: Wow! What was that move you guys just did?!
Alyssa: A little thing we worked up during our years as street bandits.
Cypress: Cool! Can you teach me?
Alyssa: Sure, but first we have to get you into the mindset. Sit down, Cypress. It’s time I tell you about our beginnings.
Sigma: Curses! The ninja have foiled my plans! Kigashumi, fetch me my backup!
Kigashumi hands Sigma a glowing red orb.
Sigma: Yes, it is finally ready. The Shi has finally prepared.
