|Sorry? Why, I've never had this much fun.|
Rufus was under no illusion that after the fall of Shinra those who had worked under the man or were outshone by his mad experiments would suddenly cease in their pursuit of knowledge and prestige. Under Shinra many scientists had become legends, the likes of which rivaled the Great Hero Sephiroth. After all it was because of the scientists working to empower their soldiers that Shinra was able to win the Wutai war with heroes like the One Winged Angel. It was their tireless efforts that allowed Shinra to first achieve their extractor that transformed the first payload of Lifestream into makou energy. Without someone controlling them as they rebuilt: he was sure they would have continued into the dark recesses of science that Kilmister was prepared to continue even after everything. Rufus had never known science to be evil, even now he did not quite think of it in such a black and white manner. Yes science was good, but it was the actions of these individuals that had put into question of man could be left to the responsibility of controlling it. Rufus was Shinra and it was his responsibility to ensure another Sephiroth or Dyne was born. He alone had to re-imagine the idea of science and man.
Ethics was a new idea that would not easily be accepted or else slow the rapid progress they had become so used to.
Rufus stood across the way, just outside the door of the room. He looked into the room as Ravus made his gradual recovery. The doctors closely monitored his heart rate and the reaction his muscles and nerves had with the integrating wires and metal parts. The doctors seemed quite thrilled at the machine and how it worked without any makou energy or the rudimentary parts they had been used to using during these types of surgeries. This was an advanced technology and they wanted to study it more, but it would take time because they lacked an effective energy source without makou or Materia. The doctors would remove the hooks and wires they had attached to Ravus that worked on reading his vitals.
'Um, excuse me if you could...?' One of the doctors wished to fit a smaller monitor on his arm. 'You will be able to remove this once you leave the facility, but if you will be testing it in the Training room we will be able to take readings and make any necessary adjustments.'
Rufus would smirk and make his way down the hall, expecting Ravus to follow him. The building was as white as the President. Its pristine halls were unmarred by the degradation of the reborn Edge city. The tall, dreary capital state was a contrast to the clean halls that doctors and soldiers worked hard to maintain the status quo. There were many who still suffered the Geostigma so this facility kept track of the Lifestream and her levels to try and calculate when, of ever, the Remnants were to return. Much of this was thanks to Kilmsiter's observations, but Rufus would never allow that man's ideals to poison his new Shinra. No. Now they would prevent the next Calamity. The next Jenova. The next Shinra... With his hound treading behind him the man's authority was undoubted. Even if he was a single man his family had raised generations on a dependency that could not be shaken. Rufus would see to it. Nothing on Planet will be able to run without Shinra's assistance. They would continue to be a forerunner in technology and innovation. Ravus' magitech would ensure that.
"Thanks to you I think I will now be able to solve my problem." The executive led the former heir to the Training room. It was seemingly empty save for a console at one end of the room, behind a great glass barrier. Rufus would plant himself in the seat, crossing his left leg over his knee before looking to the young man. "Here at Shinra we are about making people's lives easier. It is hard enough to live in a world full of disease and suffering without us making it worse. So we provide the people with what they need. Energy, medicine and ... if need be, new limbs. Let's just say our old methods did not suit this world so we have to find a new way." He explained with a soft smile. "Tell me..." He gave pause. "...your world, this technology," He motioned to his arm. "I saw the parts. It looked painful. Monstrous even. Even you can understand that there is always a better way to do something. While never wholly painless we could at least diminish suffering to encourage greater quality of life." That is what Shinra did, that is what Shinra led.
That was their control.
Rufus pressed a key on the console, starting up the program. The room before them suddenly became black. "When you enter you will find yourself in a virtual environment where you can go all out and test your arm. We will give you a simple opponent. A soldier with basic combat training, armed with ... a sword." As he spoke he typed in the program. It was a basic training program given to grunts fresh out of boot camp.
