For Arc Event IV, Act 1 - Lost In Time


Abigail had quietly been staring at Heinrich's face for quite some time. "Weren't you a Dusknoir?" she asked.

"What?!" Heinrich’s voice couldn’t have been sharper unless he had spat an actual knife out of his mouth. “No!”

Abigail's young mind couldn't believe it. "But you're Gideon!" she insisted.

The logic didn’t quite reach the Spiritomb, who merely frowned deeper. "And? What does my name have to do with this?"

"Well," Abigail began, and stopped to think. "I- I'm sure, I know a Dusknoir named Gideon." Was Heinrich a wrong Gideon? She wasn't sure. She knew there was something familiar about him.

Heinrich squinted. “Well, I’m not him.” At least… he was fairly sure he wasn’t. But… why did this Dusknoir Gideon still sound familiar to him? And why did it make him want to chuckle as if there was something amusing about him?

The Spewpa couldn't help snickering. "You sure sound sure about it." She didn't know what there was to laugh about it yet she wanted to keep going. "Mr. Dickory," she continued.

At that, something clicked in place in the back on Heinrich’s mind. “I’m not that fucking tool,” he hissed with sudden ferocity as if he had just been called the worst thing imaginable - which, honestly, was exactly what had happened. Dusknoir Gideon was a pompous dandy whose only real worth was in being a good punchline for jokes - Heinrich remembered that now. He also remembered that he definitely wasn’t that Gideon. He was Heinrich Gideon, a Spiritomb. It said so on his badge.

Tool? What did that have to do with anyth- ohhhhhhhh yeahhhhhh. That tool. Abigail saw him in her memories. She knew why she had mentioned the weird name now. She wanted to laugh again. "Maybe you really aren't," she smiled. "I mean, he's easy to recognize, isn't he?" Wait, did this Gideon know that Gideon? He talked like he did.

“That’s one thing you got right,” Heinrich muttered under his breath, still visibly peeved as he took out his shiny security badge. It wasn’t that he didn’t trust his memories, but maybe some concrete proof would drive the point home to this kid as well. “Look-” However, when Heinrich checked his badge himself, he noticed that something was off about it.

“Wait…” The Spiritomb read the name on the badge again, just to make sure he had gotten it right. “Halifax?

"Hali-what?" Then it hit Abigail. She heard a ding go off in her brain. She also knew a Halifax! She- she felt kinda scared right now! But she did know him. Whoever he was.

“Halifax,” Heinrich repeated, calmer this time, showing the badge to the Spewpa. “That’s my name. Not Gideon.” It felt wrong to say it - he was Gideon! - but at the same time… this name felt more right. More him.

"It is?" Abigail looked at the badge. She couldn't read a thing on it but she thought of something else.

"It is!" she remembered. She could clearly see it in her head now. She and this Halifax man-person had made fun of a Gideon. The Gideon! That Dusknoir! "And you're a Haxorus!" Abigail looked at Heinrich for a second. He... he clearly wasn't. Why did she think that?

The look on Heinrich’s - Halifax’s - face equaled what Abigail had thought. He obviously wasn’t a Haxorus, so why had she said that? The Spiritomb looked at his badge again, and at the vague reflection of his face on it.

Hadn’t that reflection been of a shiny Haxorus before?
