Claus's System Failure - by Mercurial Magypsy

Claus's System Failure

A music inspired piece, inspired by Renard - System Failure.

One night, as the Masked Man's cybernetics are being recharged, the system fails. And all Claus can do is stay there helpless as his cybernetics go haywire, spraying plasma, causing horrible stress to his body, making the old scars from receiving the implants bleed again.

Mercurial Magypsy Mother 3: Symphony: CH2 P4 - Awake to the Healer
m3symph - #40
Claus regains consciousness slowly to see Ionia stooped over him, her hand on his bloody face, using PK LifeUp to heal his wounds.

The boy recognizes the Magypsy as "one of those people who taught him PSI", but he doesn't get much time to chat as Ionia senses something, and suddenly leaves.


My wrist hurts like hell. That is all.

Mercurial Magypsy Mother 3: Symphony: CH2 P6 - Magypsy Ancestors
m3symph - #42

Claus continues to eavesdrop on Lucas and Ionia.

Ionia tells Lucas about the Magypsy Ancestors, the ancient Magypsies who lived out their millennia-long lives and died many centuries ago.

They were the ones who sealed away the Dark Dragon with the 7 Needles.

And now, their descendents are going to experience the pulling of the Needles...

Wait... what? Did it really happen? Could this be...?

Yes! It is! Mother 3: Symphony is back from the dead! Let's get this show back on the road!

This is page is the first and probably last time the Magypsy Ancestors make a cameo in this comic.

Yep. Ioniacestor gets 2 panels as a silhouette, Aeoliacestor and Missycestor get 1, and Phrygiacestor, Lydiacestor, Locriacestor and Doriacestor only get 1 panel as glowing eyes.

Mercurial Magypsy Mother 3: Symphony: CH2 P7 - Dark Voices
m3symph - #43

As Claus continues to listen in on Ionia's story, Claus suddenly convulses, and feels a strange dark feeling come over him.

He can just hear an evil voice tell him to pull the Needles, and an eviler version of his own voice agree to do it.

And just as suddenly as the voices began, they stop.

Perhaps the forces of evil aren't quite done with him yet...

..... (Unlike previous pages I'll be making more effort NOT to ruin moments with my idiotic asides.)

Mercurial Magypsy Mother 3: Symphony: CH2 P8 - Dangerous PSI
m3symph - #44

Claus recovers from the odd convulsion to start eavesdropping again.

Ionia is about to teach someone a dangerous new PSI move.

Maybe I'm making Ionia's PK Thunder unnecessarily epic... but hey, it's the only time we see her cast PSI in this comic.

Let the Magypsy be unnecessarily epic before she disappears.

Mercurial Magypsy Mother 3: Symphony: CH2 P9 - Electrification
m3symph - #45

As it turns out, Ionia's methods of teaching this dangerous PSI technique involves a powerful electrical shock.


(I really wish I could go back and remove my stupid author notes from previous pages talking about "Hey everyone! I listened to this music today!" or anything else that detracts from the story in the same fashion. Also, look! Clean, typed page numbers instead of messy hand drawn ones. Why didn't I do that sooner than these more recent pages...?)
