Arcana woke up in a rather irritating cage in a cold, dark (not to mention damp) room. She could tell her enemies took little care to make her comfortable, and while she knew why, it still caused a spark of anger in her. She usually was collected; cold… but the fact that she couldn't escape this situation made it extremely difficult. Being very well-versed in magic and enchantments, she could tell this cage was no ordinary one. It was one meant to keep her from using her powers; created specifically for rendering her harmless… for the time being, at least. The moment she got out of here, she would show everyone who was boss. Getting extremely bored, she tried sleeping, but it didn't work, so instead she stared at the wall. She could see in the darkness as well as if it was daylight, but she could still tell when it was dark. After a long time of fidgeting in boredom, the door to the room opened, and in stepped Zax. She hissed in annoyance. "What do you want with Arcana?"

"I'd appreciate it immensely if you would speak like a normal person for once." Arcana scowled, but said nothing, so Zax continued speaking, "I'm here to interrogate you. Surely you have figured out that much."

"Arcana was hoping that wouldn't be the case," Arcana rolled her eyes.

"You will answer me," Zax said.

"Interesting. What will Arcana get in return?"

"Your freedom. Maybe."

"You can't even guarantee? Rude."

Zax ignored the comment and preceded to his first question, "Why did you kill Kierstan?"

"Arcana was ordered to."

"By whom?"

Arcana chuckled mockingly, "Zax, Arcana knows you aren't that dumb. You know who."

"Just making sure," Zax said, annoyed. Arcana smiled at his annoyance and stood up, smoothing her black miniskirt, then letting her hands lightly clutch the bars. She was tall, so it was a little difficult standing upright in such a small cage, but she managed. "You were once good, but you changed. You turned to the wrong side." Arcana didn't answer him. She hated his questions. When he realized that yet again, Arcana was being difficult, he moved to a new question. "And Duke?"

"What about him?" Arcana asked.

"He doesn't want to join the team until he finds out why you're evil."

"Who says Arcana's evil?" Arcana said, trying her best to be vague. She didn't want to talk about this, especially to Zax!

"Elaborate," Zax replied.

"No. Arcana thinks you have enough information. Leave her alone. Her past is none of your business, and it certainly doesn't truly matter to you."

Zax tried to get her answer by many methods, but when she kept refusing to answer, he gave up. He would just ask her another time. Walking out of the room, he closed the door and walked down the hallway. Today was training day and he really needed to get to that. Meanwhile, Arcana slumped to the bottom of her cage, sighing. When would she escape?
