    Bravve hits the thin air with a punch.. little annoyed he didnt get to hit anyone. He then turns to the others "We could grab one of the suits to ask some questions.." he walks over to one of them and pokes with a finger "But they seem out cold for now"

    Indeed the suits are quite unconscious. Guile really did a number on several of them. Shinoko wonders if there's time for her to quickly run back to her room and change into her normal attire. The little weasely guy is still cowering in a corner of the ring.

    Ah, that's right... she looks to Carl, and quickly gives him her phone number, making a swift retreat to get out of this glammy outfit. So that he can send a message where to go, and she can meet them there.

    "Good job," Guile says to the group. "Don't spend too much time doing stuff like this. You gotta be well-rested for the tournament." With a salute and a personal nod acknowledging Carl, Guile turns to head back into the casino. He doesn't even ask what all of this was about.

    Carl salutes back and then turns to the weaselly guy, making a mental note to contact Shinoko when they find out what exactly lies at the bottom of all this. He waits for the greasy little runt to give some sort of explanation or at least let them follow him.

    It turns out the weasely guy's nickname is "The Weasel". His real name is Arthur Parkington. He's an accountant. He takes a long, winding route to his diner, looking out constantly for anyone who might be following him, but no one is. Shinoko is actually able to take a straight route and catch up just as everyone arrives at the diner.

    Once he's settled into a booth, he orders a coffee and explains his situation. The Weasel recently discovered that his employer, Mr. Ray (Balrog's manager), is involved in some very seedy and perhaps criminal activity. Upon deeper investigations, he discovered connections to Shadaloo. He didn't know what Shadaloo was, but soon found out more than he cared to know. He realized that he was involved in something way out of his league. Weasel admits that he has no qualms about being involved in a few dishonest deals. In fact, he is somewhat proficient in formulating paper trails to conceal such deals from the authorities. Shadaloo, however, scared him. He knew that h could be in real trouble if he ever screwed up the records. He decided to cut his losses and contact the authorities; he would give them evidence on Mr. Ray's criminal activities in return to immunity from prosecution himself.

    However, he hadn't realized that his phone call was bugged. He called the FBI but was cut off before he could reveal any information - Ray's thugs disconnected the line and came after him. He ran, and that's how he stumbled into all of you.

    He has no choice now but to see things through and go to the authorities. They're the only ones who can protect him. The problem is that he's got no proof. The proof is in his office at the Diamond. He had planned on getting it after he made the phone call, but now Ray's goons will assuredly be guarding the office. He needs help breaking in and getting some key files that can put Mr. Ray in jail and give Interpol a good lead on some of Shaladoo's operations.

    Will you help him?

    Shinoko, after hearing all this, coughs quietly. She's back in her suit and glasses, having gotten the makeup off, and she mentions, sheepishly, "... to be completely honest, I knew he at least had a computer with files on Shadaloo, since that's part of why I'm here. I'm in either way." She finishes making a text about Arthur Parkington to her company, seeing what they make of him - advice, or whether they want to do something more. A man with his expertise in papers could help.

    "Then you need to get into the office and steal the files," Weasel says. "The offices are on the fifth floor. The files you're looking for are all marked 'Octopus'. Middle cabinet, third drawer down. Remember that. It's important. The fifth floor can be reached by the elevators or one specific staircase, but you'll need special keys to use either. There are a few ways to get your hands on the keys. One - Ray's thugs each have a key. They roam around on all the hotel floors, especially the lobby. Two - the room service staff has keys. They can be found in the halls, delivering room service, or in the kitchen. Three - there's a spare in the hotel office, on the key rack behind the manager's door. If you don't want to try and get keys or you want a more unseen approach, I suppose you could rappel down from the roof and enter from the window, or you could climb straight up from the ground if you're able to do that kind of thing, but only one side of the building is good for that. Two sides are too well-lit by the lights from the Strip and one side is too dark."

    "I vote for the thugs" Bravve say with a grin "They wear the same suits as the guys attacking you before? then they should be easy to find!" He laughs a little then awaits the others response
