This has taken a sudden turn for the worse but no matter Johnny will persevere. Johnny was in shock at the whole ordeal that demons are on the ship, you know stuff that only appears in mythology. Johnny would have to suspend his disbelief at the sheer insanity of the situation at hand. "OK so these Shadows are space demons. Loud and Clear Captain." Johnny moved his wrist about. The blood oozing from the module trickling down Johnny's arm in all of its bloody horror, Johnny was taking a good long look at this new device, Johnny was curious about this blue little device. The order plug that was in the module appeared before Johnny in a bright blue aura. "I am thou, thou art I, My poison shall bring order to those who dare attempt to cheat death. I am Namtar bringer of sickness." the purple dragon-like persona regarded Johnny with its green eyes and its mouth appendages opening up. This persona is out for blood. The words Namtar had said brought Johnny a sense of unease. Johnny thought to himself about how dangerous this persona looked and was ultimately relieved that Namtar was on his side.
Johnny said to the captain in a reassured tone "I certainly feel a lot safer Johnny was now looking at the module and taking note of the settings present. He saw the map that was displayed on the module and took note of the purple star on it. Johnny raises his blood-soaked arm in the air and said. "As long as I have a module theses space demons don't stand a chance." Johnny felt triumphant until the Captain decided to overlay his existence with the blonde hair kid. Johnny was curious about the logistics behind it, like how does one overlay their existence on to someone? "Wait a minute is this whole ship just one giant module? Johnny walked up to Tykal and gave him a light punch on the arm to test something. Regardless of the result, Johnny says to Tykal in an apologetic tone "Sorry dude. The Captain said he overlayed his existence with yours so I wanted to test if the captain felt pain when you feel pain. I promise I won't do it again." Johnny then turned his direction to the rusty looking corridor. Johnny then said to the group "Alright let's get moving." And with that Johnny started to move towards the objective hoping the others will follow suit. These Shadows won't stand chance against Johnny and his newfound power.
Johnny encouraged the entire group to follow him unless any of the members have an objection I am pretty sure this will move the entire group. 400 words mean Johnny will be able to move 6 spaces. 1 Right 2 Up 2 Right 1 up. That should trigger the first enemy encounter.
As Johnny punches Tykal, the Captain appear again, rubbing the point on his arm that Tykal had been punched. "Haha, you could have simply asked. But yes. The ship's Module keeps the insides from collapsing immediately in case the engines malfunction. The entire ship isn't a Module, but its system is based on the Persona Module System, like most ships' systems are." The Captain answers calmly. You can see his hologram floating at the same speed as you as you progress through the dungeon. "Oh, enemy signatures. Good luck."
[EXISTENTIAL OVERLAY INITIATED. SCANNING FOR HOST...] ... ... [HOST LOCATED. MALE HUMAN. COMPATIBILITY VALUES CONFIRMED.] [OVERLAID EXISTENCE PERSONA MODULE SYSTEM INITIATED.]
There was no moment to process. No warning to brace himself for the on coming jolt of fiery electricity that shot down his spine and through the webs of nerves in his body. He let out a painful disorienting cry immediately bringing his hands around his head and curling over. It was as if his entire body had been ignited all at once. His vision blurred in an out like focusing an old lens. Dizziness and nausea coincided with with the vision. He had never experienced anything like this before. It was as if his very being was being flayed off of him. He took a faint step before losing balance. The symptoms he had experienced dulled as he felt his equilibrium fail him and his body dropping like a puppet from it's strings.
He felt someone grab his arms from behind stabilizing him. As he was brought to his feet he returned to normal. Perhaps normal wasn't the word. As he turned to gaze on the persona that been gifted to him, he gained a strange insight. There needed to be no explanation of what it was or how to use it. Tykal simply knew as if it were instinct. He gazed upon Agni who stood tall floating off the ground. It certainly was large. It's appearance strange and yet oddly enough it didn't seem to send any fright or unease in Tykal. It was after all part of the human soul. There was no speech from it like the other Personas that awoke from the modules. Then again Tykal's awakening to a persona was different from their own.
Tykals innate understanding of the Persona took no time to realize he had another power within his soul. As the captain spoke Tykal curled his palm as a single small knife formed within. It looked near identical to the throwing knives he had at home. Tykal stared at it examining it before closing his hand fully the knife disappearing as if it were never there. Reality sat back in when Jonny punched his arm. Tykal snapped over narrowing his eyes some showing his disapproval. Though Jonny's swift apology did bring a faint grin. In truth, Tykal would've likely done the same, though not a punch perhaps a pat or at best a pinch who knew. "It's alright" Tykal responded.
The captain reappeared rubbing his arm, the same action Tykal was doing. I brought a more true grin to Tykals face. "Well at least now you have incentive to not let me get too injured. Right?" Tykal said staring at the Captain. If this functioned with a light jab then likely if Tykal experienced real pain then the captain would get injured too. If that were to happen then they'd really be how did he say it, Thoroughly Screwed
There was still a great deal of things Tykal wished to ask the Captain after all this mess was settled and he wasn't letting him get away with some vague answer. In the meantime Cain and Mianna set off. Tykal was to follow. He hung a slight bit back but not so much as to not be part of the group. He seemed to be trapped in thought with his hand to his chin.
It wasn't until he saw the shadows that he snapped out of his trance. Cain was already on the attack. Mianna too seemed to jump to assault as if it were second nature. Tykal's eyes focused on the enemy. Agni had seemed to disappear somewhere between the Captains conversation and the walk, Tykal hadn't even noticed. It didn't matter, Tykal somehow simply knew how to invoke this Persona at will. Perhaps some of this knowledge was shared when his existence was overlayed or maybe it was something anyone with this Potential had lying dormant inside of them just waiting to awaken.

Johnny just responded to the Captian's response with a simple "Huh neat." As the group approached the shadows, Johnny felt nervous, he was bracing himself for the horrors that lie ahead. He then discovered what these shadows and one surprised to see a Koala. "Is this Koala dissing us? That won't fly." Out of all the horrors the universe could've thrown at him like space zombies or face-hugging aliens Anti space decides to throw a Koala in Johnny's face. Johnny noticed that everyone is attacking the Koala. Johnny was more worried about the crying rectangle thing as it looks like its planning something and Johnny was not intending of finding out what. Johnny starts doing an air guitar trick over his chest which then actual music started to play, Johnny while playing this air guitar sung out. "Namtar let's blow 'em away!!!" Namtar appeared to deliver an extreme gust of wind from a Garu targeting Slogutis.
