Time: 3:50 - Location Chaldea HQ - Alps Mountains

=====

[Youtube]

It all started as a standard day in the middle of a cold afternoon in the Alps Mountains where the group of mages known as The Chaldea Security Organization who keep the peace in the history of time. This time, and all alternatives that would cause havoc in the grand scheme of the universe. With the Great Grail, and the Lower Grail often falling into the hands of people who do not deserve them it is possible for time itself to be displaced because of that. Or simply perhaps because the time lines failed to reach a predestined conclusion. Some alternatives were accepted Altria Pendragon not fading away into non existence after the Fuyuki War. Or possible failures of people like Shirou Emiya to end a conflict properly leading to other victories. Some of those were predetermined time lines that were possibilities. Some possibilities that were not accounted for such as an unaccounted for servant. Or a leak of the mysterious essence known as 'All the World's Evil' which typically surrounded the Avenger Class.

It was typical for Chaldea to send agents off to different times using the Coffin: Spiritron Chassis which allowed them to go back towards the past, or alternative relatives in order to stop these events from happening. The process known as Rayshift was the technique used to do so. It was today that Team A consisting of Scipio Africanus summoned by Keiji Togami, Mitsuhide Akechi summoned by Miranda Einzbern, Zhao Yun summoned by Blake Bell, and Helena Blavatsky summoned by Judai Adachi once more stepped into the fold. Togami being a powerful mage with an equally powerful servant led the group, as per the usual, into a issue with the French Revolution of 1792 in an alternative timeline. A strange reading had occurred and it needed to be dealt with immediately...that was a full three days ago. It was not the usual the group to loose contact with the station. Director Orson had been quite tight lipped about the whole situation but now things were starting too look bleak.

Chaldea Staff on the other hand were on par with their usual assignments of keeping eyes on the rayshift machines, and the other machines that monitored the world. Some of them vastly improved thanks to the genius of the knowledge of a Caster known as Archimedes whom was known for his famous inventions. Despite the vanishing act that had befallen the first team everything was rather quiet as the other teams went about their duties separately. This day was different. Director Orson had ordered the Team to meet them at the Global Environment Model "CHALDEAS". It was where the world itself was usually monitored since it contained the soul of the world.

====

Leon had been training in the testing facilities since he woke up. His team had not been needed to be assembled for a while. Usually given assignments when Team 1 had already had their duties filled up he was more often than not given difficult but not extreme assignments. He remembered his first mission was to simply put down a few mages that were plotting to overthrow the order of the Fuyuki Grail War. The servant summoned by their team at the time, Andrew Jackson, had made quick work of them. Since then Jackson had joined Team C somewhere in Scandinavian territories, and his old friends had either died, or transferred leaving him to be in charge of B Team by default. There were still a few people he recognized here, and there but he didn't really know them all too well. Ever since leaving America a few years back he had been in charge of his own life and he vastly preferred it to his father hovering over him. He found the work more gratifying than simple dueling. Leon needed to make a living as a mage so why not as a protector of Earth? It was not fancy work, and it didn't get him any fame with the average person but it just worked for him.

Of course he couldn't stay training all day by himself he wondered what Orson could want. He was a coarse, rough, and deathly serious man but he was honest, and respectful of people as long as they did not act out. As a Director he lacked charisma but made up for it in a clear talent for leading people in dangerous situations. He wondered what Orson had been like when he was younger? Was he always this stuffy? It was possible but he simply failed to ever remember a time where he saw the director smile from a joke. It may have been better that way better to act as a strong pillar than a goofy fool. He had to command respect from his troops.

Those were the simple thoughts on Leon's mind as he made his way out of the training rooms. He was still hot so he kept his white pristine Chaldea uniform unbuttoned. It was cool, but not humid in the halls of Chaldea. It made up for the fact that the climate was kept under good control by the staff here. Still he wondered if it was unprofessional as the boss of his team he had to make a good impression. He'd make a mental note to button up before getting to see Director Archibald. He did wonder where his team was exactly and hoped they would make it on time.

Sabrina's gloved fist came in contact with the sandbag. She had begun her morning training just as she normally would. Sabrina made sure to always practice a little, whether it was her martial arts or magecraft before starting the day. Yes, there were days she skipped but it was a routine of hers just as many others. Working up a sweet was needed anyway, knowing how she ate. But the acclimated time for training was over and she best get to the meeting she had.

It was rather strange, she had a gut feeling it was related to the radio silence of Team 1. They had been sent on a mission and they've never gone this long without someone checking in. She doubted they had died, not with the mages and servants the team had. There was a reason she was part of the starting team. She was good at mageraft, Decently average, and was more than proficient with firearms. She still wasn't worthy of being on team 1.

Sabrina through a final punch and began to remove her gloves and put them in her duffle bag. She walked over to the showering area and quickly undressed and took a quick shower. Sweating was icky, to say the least, and living the life she did before Chaldea, a shower was something she could never skip out on. After cleaning up, Sabrina got dressed in her white Chaldea uniform. It was a tad tight, but nothing she'd complain about. With that, Sabrina rushed towards the meeting, a smile on her face, and humming a tune to herself.

As she briskly walked towards "CHALDEAS" , she saw Leon walking by himself once again. He was a loner, and if anything else a talented Magus and capable team leader. He was a humble man, and someone she could trust to get the job done. That was about it, she didn't know much about him besides he was an American and what was already mentioned. If it was outside of a magical duel, Sabrina was confident she'd kick his little ass.

"Leon! Wait up!" She yelled making it impossible to ignore her. She ran up beside him and smiled. "What's up, Leon? Got any idea why we're being called end?" She suspected he knew something about why they're meeting. "I bet it has something to do with the silence from Team 1...but a smart boy like you figured that out already, right?"

Bailey's position on Team B was something of a shock when he'd been given the position. It wasn't the lead team nor was he in charge of the team he was posted to, that he knew would never happen. But being part of the first backup team for whatever it was, had been unexpected. His family's practices left most trying to rebuild what their parent had spent a lifetime learning or taking up new practices that had been a waste of time. And to be frank, much of this had been a waste of time for him. All he wanted was to get back to eastern Asia and resume his studies.

The place was interesting, but ultimately irrelevant - plenty of magi capable magi were there and ready to go. There were a number of people who were worried about the first team but he wrote it off. Much of history had folks terrified of magecraft who would burn a city down to get what they thought was a mage.

Some of the members of Chaldeas teams had been using the gym for their exercise. Bailey preferred jogging through the halls itself for the cardio. It was how he ran into his team's leader, Leon, as he rounded a corner. Quite literally.

Leon grumbled as he rubbed his eyes and looked back to see his fellow B Teamer run up to him. Sabrina had a lot of energy sometimes, and even he felt like he was old man compared to her. Well at least she was cute. "Hey! Sabrina good afternoon. I'm in no place to speculate about The A Team. But if the Director is calling us it may be that something big is happening in France. We may be called upon to back them up. Maybe even summon some servants." Leon said as he nodded at her, and then pulled an data pad from his coat's inner pocket. "Looks like Archimedes wants us to head to the command room. I hope nothing too bad has happened at the very least." Leon said as he showed her the orders issued from the Caster himself. "Oh uh hey there! You're the newbie right? This is Sabrina. I'm Leon. We're down a few people but we're still good to go. I'm sure you just heard what I said right? Anyone want to grab something before we head out to see the big boss?"

"Sorry, sir," He recognized who it was he ran into pretty quick: his team leader Leon Winchester. As far as first impressions go, he'd just blown it. And probably his option to remain innocuous with them. Bailey bowed in apology. It was a surprise that a magus didn't tear into him verbally for it. He'd seen others do so to his family for lesser offenses. The head lowering was a reflex from his years in the east. "I am. Rippyngham, Bailey." He stepped aside to let him continue walking.
Beside their leader stood another person - Sabrina given the introduction - who was either his assistant or another member of the team. Either way, her chest was packed so tight into the white Chaldea uniform it was a shock it closed. Did they get the size wrong? It took a second longer than he figured was appropriate to shake the focus.
"If it's all the same with you, I'd rather we get started." Patience was not a virtue to be instilled as far has he was concerned. Once you found something you start going at it until it was finished.

"I understand its just prudent to make sure to exchange greetings, and all that but come on guys we gotta keep moving we got job to do." Leon told the two members of his team as he hurried to the next room over. As he came to the doorway down the long hall that led to CHALDEAS he saw the two guards standing in the doorway though they had almost never saw combat they had to take precautions even with Heroic Spirits wandering around. Who knows if someone has been secretly working to undermine literally everything they stood for CHALDEAS was almost irreplaceable, and it being disrupted, or destroyed would set them back really badly. Let alone the Rayshift technology, and everything that went with it. The guards looked over Leon, and the group quickly checking them for weapons, and anything else before letting the group through. It was once they were inside did they meet Director Orson whom was standing in the middle of the hallway leading up to the giant blue globe with his back to them, and the door. He was in his standard outfit he wore a long white cape with a white shirt. His hands were covered in black gloves, and his boots matched them. He also tended to wear black, or white pants to match the uniform. His graying slicked back tan hair meshed well with his uniform. He seemed really tense despite all of this but kept quiet. Instead of him, or Leon going up to them they were met by another man.

The man, or rather the legendary scientist, who stood before them looked at Leon, Bailey, and Sabrina with a serious tone which was out of character for the usually calm, and collected individual. "You took your time arriving here Captain Winchester." commented the individual in front of them as he folded his arms and waited for a response. He was clearly frustrated but he was trying to keep calm. "Sorry I wasn't expecting us to be called on such short notice. I thought you wouldn't need us for a mission since the new guys are still settling in, and all." Leon responded too them as the man turned his eyes on the new comer. He gave a sigh but it was more of an attempt to regain his usual composure than to express distaste, or disgust with the group. "So you're the newcomer finally has gotten the chance to put himself into action I see? I've already read your files, in fact I helped compose them, but I suppose introductions are best done in person. I am Archimedes. Also known as the Wizard of Balance. Forgive me it has been a hard few days...as you've sure you've heard Team One has gone missing...Normally this would not be an issue. However we have made...progress on that matter. Which is why you're here today. Director Orson the new ones have arrived." Archimedes called over as the director turned back his light blue eyes scanning the three of them with a stern steely gaze and he strutted over to the three of them.

"This is hardly the greeting I intended to give you all but time is of the essence. But I would be a bad gentleman if I did not officially welcome you both to Chaldea. You're lucky to be working under Leon he's not the best agent we have but he's a talented, and sensible one. Do not be afraid to voice objections with him. He listens unlike some leaders who simply go by their own accord. Team C use to have a leader that only listened to his own ego. That being said don't believe him to be infallible he isn't. You probably know my name but just in case I am your Director. Orson Dane Archibald the Second. I am the acting head of the Archibald family." commented Orson quickly speaking through his greeting as he turned back to CHALDEAS. "Do you have any questions before we go on? I can't stress more how urgent this matter is. But I can't send new agents out without answering some of their questions." Orson said trying to keep himself organized but it was clear to even Leon that he was holding himself together with sheer willpower.

Leon greeted her, somewhat sounding less tired than she thought he would today. She gave him a smile. "I guess your right, Leon." She responded after Leon answered her previous question. "Summoning servants...that sounds fun!" Sabrina than heard another pair of footsteps join them and turned to see her new teammate. Sabrina's judged her new teammate on her first glance. He seemed to be the formal type. Mature and far older than she expected him to be. She smiled at him as his eyes darted away from hers at something completely different. She rolled her eyes and kept up her friendly persona. She couldn't blame the man.

Team B continued to the desired meeting point. As they neared Chaldea, they were stopped by security and checked for weapons before being allowed to enter Chaldea. Once entering Chaldea, Sabrina saw what looked to be a holographic of the entire planet. From what she's been told, this was virtually the very heart of their planet.

Waiting for them were Director Orson, dressed finely as usual and Archimedes, one of the most famed scientists to ever exist. He was by far the oldest servant to inhabit the artic base as far as her knowledge. He gave off the impression of a stern man who had little time for jokes. Reminded her of her father. Surely he was more complex than him, he was stern but straight forward most of the time.

The famed scientist introduced himself and explain the situation. For some reason, she got the feeling this guy didn't like her...and probably himself very much. Director Orson then spoke and gave them a proper greeting and welcoming them to the organization. He gave Leon praise but reminded them that he wasn't infallible. They should question him when needed. When the time came for question Sabrina had only a few.

"Director, my only question is the situation in France. How did you lose contact with A team? What difficulties will we face? Furthermore what servants will you be providing us? You do have answers....right?"

So he complemented their team leader then casually insulted him. And only finally introduced himself after several days? Not so good at being a self-proclaimed gentleman. Just another magus who placed his value on his lineage rather than ACTUAL skill and accomplishments. Archimedes however he didn't get as much of a read from. Of course, Bailey spent most of his time avoiding people as a practice. At least they had made it clear it was to be a team, rather than dictatorship. It'd be interesting to see if it actually played that way.

"Mine aren't too different from hers. Just two question, what's the objectives when we get to A team - are we leaving once we get them or finishing the job they started? And how are the servants we get determined?" While he had doubts, it would be interesting to see what famed heroic servant he might be able to draw. If it was random. Of course, depending on how well the system supplied mana to the servants in the field.

He still didn't understand all this fascination, hell, obsession with servants. All they were were echoes of people who used to exist. A mage might be of use, but that would only be useful for their magecraft due to the once higher levels of prana. Anything less than say, 200 years? Probably not worthwhile enough. Not for what it had to cost to build all of this and keep it running. But analyzing the usefulness of the equipment wasn't his job - doing what the director and team leader did was.

"Help either extract Team A Leader Togami, and whoever remains left with him, or assist in reestablishing contact so that they can receive our assistance. Failing that you are to confirm the deaths of the team, and their servants. Their coffins are giving us a mixed signal some have flat lined others seem to be in between. We are sure something has happened to them at the very least. If Team A is dead restore proper historical standing to France if possible. Last we heard from them King Louis had imprisoned, and strong armed the leaders of what would be the revolution's leaders into house arrest. We also heard reports of soldiers in non-french uniforms from the period patrolling the area. Using older weapons like spears, and swords." Director Orson told them as he waved his hands at Chaldeas and brought up a pad of the last known communication up. "This is Togami! We have confirmation that Prince Louis has done something different from this Timeline. Men, and women in Paris are being brutally suppressed, and patrolled. If anyone tries to fight the guards they are terminated. I will report back in when I have the chance." Togami said before the message cut out. "As far as we're aware the men, and women of Team A were investigating the Sun King, and Queen Marie when they left. They also left messages that they had encountered a servant of non-french descent likely east Asian. This is why you have been summoned you will restore the singularity before it burns a hole in the proper time." Archimedes told them as he folded his arms together, and looked over the group. "The servants will be summoned using the Chaldea Summoning system. It was originally intended to be used by a designer baby when summoned there but I had to make adjustments when that failed. I more or less altered the original Clocktower ritual, and now it summons as a servant you should be roughly compatible with and you will receive help supporting that servant by Chaldea's systems." Archimedes said as he looked to Orson but Leon asked something before he could talk. "When do we start?" he asked with a proper smile. He held himself with confidence, and he wasn't afraid to do what needed to be done. "Whenever you are ready we shall proceed to the summoning system. Leon will go then, Sabrina, and then Bailey. This situation is dire I would recommend following me immediately."
