The Professor was walking through the town and local people were quickly moving from his way. A tall, dark figure with a stern face was moving with the grace of an apex predator in the middle of a herd of sheep. This, together with the cold, frightening aura, that was emanating from this person was but a side effect of that man´s bad mood.Gabriel was grumpy. While M.A.R.I. was growing under the watchful eyes of his subordinates, the Professor himself was still hunting the ones responsible for Python´s death and was making only small progress on this front. And on top of that, Beast ran away. The large fluffball full of mischief used the opportunity to disappear when her owner was preoccupied with an overzealous marine officer who mistook him for some wanted criminal. Before he could clear the misunderstanding, the giant malamute ran away, possibly lured by the smell of food.
This would be worrisome even if she would be a normal dog. But Beast was a large, very large one. As tall as an average man, while standing an all four, bulky and with an ability to chew through anything from stone to tempered steel she could easily frighten someone to death but just running in their general direction, despite her generally cheerful and friendly nature.
Fortunately finding her wasn´t that hard. All he had to do was follow the clues she was letting behind. Broken pavement tiles, lightning column bitten in half, fish stall broken into pieces, whose owner was cursing some fluffy menace, that stole his goods, it all led him street by street to her location. If he wouldn´t be that angry, Gabriel would be probably glad that the locals were such fearful people, disappearing in the shadows just on sight of him, otherwise, he would lose fortune just to compensate for the damage she caused.
