January 6, 2054, MARIA MERCURIAL CONCERT, UNDERWORLD 93, SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA
Maria Mercurial has finished playing her set and enters the dressing room like a silver panther on the prowl. Smoke’s jaw falls to the floor and it is hard to imagine any time that this battle-hardened runner has ever been so quiet. On the other hand, the first thing that Mr. C notices is that she radiates sexuality, a strong tang of danger and that Electro could care less. Max instantly introduces her to all the new faces in the room. “I understand you are here to try and help protect me while Max begins the hiring process for my new security detail” she says. Her english is excellent, with a noticeable Aztlan accent. She continues to speak and becomes excited, starting to mix Aztec and Spanish with her English and excuses herself to the bathroom to clean up.

Suddenly the dressing room door bursts open. Two men are in the doorway and a third passing by to cover the hallway while the gunfire erupts throughout this compact entertainers’ relaxation space.
