Elfé found herself in the technologically advanced San Fransokyo. It stood as a stark contrast to her ravaged homeworld. This place didn't have the equivalent of Shinra sucking the life out of the planet itself, so that was a good thing. But that didn't mean that there weren't shady individuals roaming around either... They came in many forms, but if you wanted to tap into a criminal market, then it was the enigmatic people that fancied themselves "Collectors"... Taking in rare pieces of technology and artifacts. Often through quite underhanded means if money wasn't enough, or if the owner was asking for a little too much.
She had acclimated pretty well to this city, so she was able to pick out a target that was guilty of this very act. Now, she didn't think herself much of a Vigilante, but she was interested in what he had recently acquired. Supposedly it was a set of crystals said to hold great magical power. Most people thought it nothing more than superstition, or merely the result of a stolen experiment from one of the up and coming scientists that made their way in San Fransokyo.
Another such rumor was that they came from another world entirely. If that part was true, then Elfé had a pretty good idea on what they were. So she immediately set out to do a bit of "collecting" of her own... Despite the heavy security, she didn't have any problems breaking into their 'personal museum'. It was filled with armed guards, practically armed like a private military company. Not that it helped them against the woman that was on the hunt for Materia. Despite the fact that she was only armed with a sword, she didn't even need to use that on them.
A combination of the hilt, the sheath, and her own CQC techniques were enough to render the guards unconscious. The owner of this places was away, so that was another complication avoided. The newest addition wasn't on display, but she had a feeling this locked briefcase housed exactly what she was after... Especially since those guards were so keen on keeping her away from it.
She'd left a nice mess for them to come back to, but no one had lost their life. So that was something. She wasn't here to punish criminals, she was just out to secure Materia for herself. It was illegally gained in the first place, so... She wasn't going to lose sleep on this.
Elfé mused on that as she calmly makes her way through the streets, briefcase in hand. Right now it was night, which was the perfect time to pull the heist. So far, it seems like she was going to make a nice clean getaway.
"If only it went that smoothly when we were dealing with Shinra...", she mutters under her breath.
