“Yeah! I’m fine. Happens sometimes. Not as often as it used too when I first started using them though! I used to crash into trees, and other stuff a whole lot before I got the hang of it. Thanks for the hand!” Jumpy responds as Ashe helps him out of the bush.
“They’re pretty versatile too! Can be used over sand, snow, and others. A pair can even be modified into hydro jets for underwater! Of course you’d need a rebreather to go along with them so you can breathe.” Jumpy continues.
Jumpy removes the skates and protective gear before asking another question.
“What exactly is it that you do? Are you a treasure hunter of some sort? Where I come from, there’s people called diggers, who look for ancient artifacts and stuff in underground ruins all over the place. Although the ruins often have a bunch of scary Reaverbots and traps guarding the treasures.” Jumpy asks her.
“Sure, no prob!” The bounty hunter replied as they boy thanked her.
As Ashe listened to Jumpy’s explanations, she began to get more and more interested in those jet skates. “Wow, those seem really handy!” she commented just as he finished his explanation.
“Huh? Well, yeah I guess ‘treasure hunter’ is another way to put it. But we also sometimes do missions like getting rid of some Mavericks in a certain area. …For a little bounty of course.” Ashe said with a smirk.
“Wow, really? Underground ruins with lots of ancient booty in it!? Boy, I’d sure love to go there one day…!!” She exclaimed with her eyes all lit up thinking ‘bout all that treasure. But for now, she shook it off for the time being and turned to face Jumpy with a few questions of her own.
“Eherm, so… yeah, who’s this ‘Mega Man Volnutt’ by the way? You mentioned him earlier while you were putting on your safety gears. Also, what are these ‘Reaverbots’? They some kind of Maverick or something??”
“Mega Man Volnutt’s a young digger who saved my home, Kattelox Island, from a pirate attack and some other mysterious disaster too. He’s also saved a whole bunch of other people on other Islands, even saving the whole world too! Unfortunately in the process he got stuck up on a space station called Elysium, where he’s been for the past few years or so. But his friend Roll a genius mechanic, and Tron, also a gifted mechanic and reformed pirate are working hard with lots of other people to build a rocket to bring him home some day! I also hope to fight him in a boxing match and have a jet skate race with him when he returns too!” Jumpy exclaims.
“And Reaverbots are dangerous attack robots that guard the underground ruins. They come in all shapes and sizes, from little snake ones a foot long up to several story tall giants! When defeated, they spill out refractor shards, crystals used as power sources and currency where I’m from. And I’m not sure what a ‘Maverick’ is, but I’m pretty sure that’s not what they are.” Jumpy continues his explanations.
(OOC: Mega Man Vonutt, also known as Mega Man Trigger, is a heroic digger, and kind of like a cyborg, as his arms can be swapped out like for different weapons, but he grows and eats food like a human. Also a theory that the Legends timeline happens centuries after ZX Advent and some big flooding event covering the world in water. So I guess he and other people in the Legends world could be the result of blending human and reploid characteristics over centuries. Phew! That’s a lot of information!)
