Kai couldn't help but think that Tempest was an inaccurate moniker for the President interim. Bombshell would have been far more fitting. It's getting to the point that, between Nessa and Tempest, Kai was starting to feel pretty pedestrian in the board shorts he'd been given to match the beach wear theme, and the open white button-up t-shirt he'd been given to hide his burnt side.

He concludes that it should be criminal for a world leader to look that good. Then Kai's brain helpfully reminds him that she is, in fact, the head of an oppressive, meta-human supremacist government, and quite possibly is a legitimate criminal.

Then another part of his brain chimes in to add that she isn't as bad as her dad, and even helped out Halcyon when it was attacked be Atlantean super-humans. That and a random piece of advice floats to the surface of his mind, about taking every opportunity to form contacts with important people.

"Wish me luck," he whispers to Nessa before stepping out to put himself directly in the way of Miskaela Tatya Novakoff, President interim of Glavnos. He sees a bunch of the suits she arrived with stiffen at his approach. He's not too concerned about guns, but given who they're escorting, there's a strong chance those guys are metas.

"Yo. Saw what you did in the Utopian Crisis. Smartmove taking out their air support. Prince Mosi could learn a thing or two from you. Was working with him on a hostage situation this morning, and the madman legit just dives right into the middle of it, and takes a swing at the ringleader," Kai says with an air of casual confidence he only wished he really felt.

"I guess what I'm trying to say here is; Hi, I'm Kai, and I'd like to get your take on some stuff here in San Fran," as he says this, Kai extends a hand towards Tempest.

At that moment, a gust blows in. Kai isn't sure if it was natural or from Tempest, but it causes his shirt to billow out, revealing the red and blistered skin on his side. He quickly uses the hand that isn't extended towards Tempest to pull it back into place and hide his injury. But as he makes eye contact with Tempest, he knows she saw it.
