Hayden took Genpaku's hand, and they traded grips. Then something potentially odd happened; Genpaku bowed. It was now an old gesture, an old form of respect that lived on in the young-looking shinigami. “Thanks for helping hold down the fort while I was away,”he said before standing back on and continuing on with the conversation.
Genpaku shared Hayden's optimism, that people banding together could halt the tide of darkness that had been sweeping over the worlds for a long time now. That was why Genpaku had made the Special Human Task Force originally, and why he had taken that division and made it its own organization. Hayden turned and spoke to the demon, and it was instantly clear the two were comrades of some sort. There was an inherent trust in Hayden's words, and the way he left the demon at his back spoke either of confidence or trust, or perhaps both. Blackheart took the chance to speak up. “Considering that some time ago me and my friend back there thought we'd killed him, I suppose its safe to say we gave him cause to feel antagonized. I imagine it would be why he'd have been missing from the affairs of the worlds for as long as he was. Or has been. I'm unclear when he made his return to be honest; I just got back here myself,”Genpaku said. His tone was polite, yet still somewhat guarded.
Some of that tension returned to Genpaku as Blackheart stepped past him towards Kaminari and Lilith. Given how things had played so far and what little information he had, there was probably no threat from the demon. Yet, it was that lack of information that put Genpaku on edge in this moment. He didn't know how the world had changed since he'd been gone. He couldn't be sure who, honestly, was an ally and who wasn't anymore. These were things that would take time to figure out. While he had made the Vanguard with the intent of letting anyone in that wanted to protect the Earth, it hadn't changed what Genpaku had seen and experienced first hand. He'd been at ground zero of London.
Hayden spoke up again, and Genpaku turned back to him; however, he kept part of his attention back on Blackheart. To most, he'd probably seem relaxed in this moment but there was a subtle, quiet tension about Genpaku. He was frankly ready to move at a moment's notice, and not in the way he had back in the world he'd found himself trapped in. Neither of these people were pushovers; if he needed to move, he'd do so with all the speed he could manage. “If I'm being honest, I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do. My information is greatly out of date; that hardly makes me an ideal candidate to lead anyone. So I imagine my first step will be figuring out what I've missed while I was stranded. I never agreed to a retirement though, and I certainly don't plan to sit around and do nothing. Figuring out where to begin however is the part that will take a while.”

Lilith stood quietly and watched the scene before her. She had little more to say on it all and observation seemed the better plan. There was an easiness about her that she hadn't felt in a long while and she was going to enjoy that for now. With a calm air about her, she watched Blackheart make his way over to the struggling midget to offer assistance. She shot a knowing glance toward Genpaku for reassurance. If Blackheart did try anything, a war would break out, but Lilith sensed no hostility.
"Hehehe... Paky's got a fan..."
Kaminari raised her head only slightly, her eyes meeting the gaze of the one who touched her shoulder. She showed a momentary and weak smile before forcing a nod. "Oh, yeah. I'll be okay. I just... I don't know..." Kaminari's head lowered like it was too heavy for her to keep up, "I feel off, like all of my strength has been ripped from me. I just ate, so I know it's not that. I-I think I'll be okay though." Kaminari closed her eyes and took a deep breath. She held it for a few moments and slowly let it out before forcing herself to her feet, holding up a victorious fist.
"See, I-... Never mind." Kaminari allowed herself to fall onto her backside and just sat there, "This is your guys' fault. It happened when you and Paky's fans showed up." "Paky?" Lilith looked at Kaminari as if she has been personally offended by that nickname. Her expression faltered even more when she realized that she just got called one of Genpaku's fans. "Hey, midget! I am not a FAN. Don't lump me in with this guy!" Lilith pointed at Hayden, who's speech patterns had given it away. Lilith then shot a look toward Genpaku, "Didn't tell her about me?! It's been four years! Four! And not one word?" Lilith turned away and crossed her arms, faking sadness and pouting like she was the child here.
"Anyways!" she didn't let that go on for more than a second, "The best thing to do here, at least in my opinion, is to head back to where you left off... We should take care of your pint-sized girlfriend here and then figure out where that is. We can drop her off somewhe-..." "No. You're not leaving me anywhere. I got separated from him for two weeks, so I'm no-..." "Two weeks? Little one, di-..." "I know he's been gone longer for you. I'm weak, not stupid, but that doesn't take away the fact that he's my only link to anything familiar. If he hadn't told me my name, I wouldn't know it. I don't know who I am or where I'm from, so until he helps me find that like he promised, I'm not separating from him. Okay, Gen?" She shot Genpaku a bit of a look, figuring he'd want to argue. She couldn't blame him since she kept breaking out into a sweat and was having trouble breathing, but he'd have to deal with her stubbornness. Apparently, that's the type of people he attracts.
