"Hey, Sing-Sing, quick question. If you found a friendly citizen - could they get a message into California?"
"Chances are no. Actually, let me think. Definitely no. A snowball's chance in hell Diego would say."
"Any idea why they're so hard to deal with?"
"The ones holding the area are bastards"
"Ahh, yes - Occam's razor - the simplest explanaition is ususally the right one."
"Lots of Razors at least, not much occam. The area is held by the um, there really isn't a good way to translate the name. Flying blue hands of the sky is close, but misses a lot of the meaning. Beautiful demons that strike from nowhere with perfect accuracy leaving no survivors in their wake might be closer."
"Ninjas from space?"
"That might be a decent fit"
"Ïs there anything helpful you can tell us about the?"
"We've been over before what to mind with citizens. Are we guests on your planet, or were you just custodians waiting for our arrival. Are humans useful tools for now - or too dangerous to allow them to keep living. Do we make a new society, or reestablish the one we're used too. Well, the Blue Assassins are a mercenary guild, thus playing a big part in the old hierarchy, and by definition militant as well. They're ruthless and powerful."
"And hate humans of course"
"Limiting the influx is one thing, but I don't know if they would immediately wipe people out."
"The biggest challenge for all citizens is set up - humans just need to restart all their factories, we need to build them from the ground up. Pilot production of somethings has probably begun but we haven't prospected mineral sources overly much - you know the whole war and walking abominations thing."
"So - they're using slave labor or something like that to get ahead?"
"I haven't been there either, I couldn't say. But either them, or the group in new Mexico are the most likely to go to war sometime soon, the rest should be cooler, even if not friendly."
"Where does your group stand?"
"We think the world belongs to us, but nothing good is going to come of trying to wipe out the humans, so we might as well try to work together. Would I get to be a radio personality if relations were anything less than ambivalent?"
"I guess not. Though its piqued my curiosity - why blue?"
"Given the spectrum we see - blue is considered bright, clean, righteous, the center. The sea is blue, the sky is blue, and all else is a contrast against that. Same thing humans have for white."
