Kabe was glad to be saved the long winded explanation of Raiti-Zacro and it's place in the universe, with Ticoga having known about it. Kabe simply nodded in confirmation. He could see a look of recognition on Ticoga's face, as cobbled bits of information scraped from Galactic databases, including the Arcosian government's own private and secure file sever, flashed up alongside the data he'd had on Chirime. He did not show it, but he got a small kick every time he showed off something like this to a government official and they could do nothing about it.
"Fukushu..." Kabe stopped, caught off guard by hearing the name. It soured his mouth. He was clever, powerful and secretive. Three traits that got you very far in the circles that criminals and pirates often intermingled in. He wasn't a man who Kabe knew a great deal about, but what he did know was a few stories that made his skin crawl. He elected to keep these little anecdotes to himself.
"If you know what he's up to and can see reason for honesty, then you can probably trust whatever information he gave you." Kabe slurped down a stack of pancakes as if they were liquid through a straw and shrugged. "But the truth from a pirate is still always a lie. Either way, I can at least confirm for you that I've seen the Red Dawn's work in action on Plant. Konats though, mostly I've heard about that through the grapevine."

"It may be a bit far to claim I know what the Heran is doing." Ticoga counter flatly. "Trust is not something I give freely - he is a source of information. And I must take all information I obtain at face value until it can be proven true or false."
Ticoga looks at Kabe and smiles friendlily.
"I am glad to know that at least some of Fukushu's information is beginning to prove at least somewhat overblown." he continues, eating daintily. For pirates, this crew seemed to eat rather well. "If you've seen the Red Dawn's activities, then that means they are not nearly as elusive as Fukushu has led me to believe. Assuming you yourself do not occasionally work with them from time to time."
Ticoga finishes the food on his plate, and cleans his hands and face before speaking further.
"What can you tell me about their activities that you have witnessed, or seen evidence of? Have you been able to sort out who does or does not have authority, and how much?" Ticoga inquires, selecting a dessert tray. "Even arbitrary information can be useful. After all, my eventual goal is not just to capture a specific branch of this group - it is to eventually eradicate them altogether."

Kabe had a large wealth of information to share on the topic, though a lot of it was scraps and shreds he'd pieced together or that Ticoga would have to follow up on. He wasn't in the habit of tracking the exact activities of other criminal organizations, unless they encroached on his own. And as he'd already mentioned, the dangerous activities the Red Dawn were involved in where not exactly the forte of him and his men.
After relaying all of the information he could, and wrapping up the last few bites of the mighty feast he'd devoured alongside Ticoga, Kabe abruptly stood up from the table. "Well," he started, clicking a slide in the wall and offering a physical copy of what data he'd shared across to Ticoga. "Good luck with your plan to wipe the Red Dawn out. I'm sure a great deal of us pirates would be just as happy as your government to see them gone."
He had somewhere he needed to be, and a search to continue down below, and the longer a government official remained aboard the ship, the greater the discomfort his crew would feel. "I don't wish to say you've overstayed your welcome, but I've got work to get back to down on the surface. If you see this kid," Kabe said, flicking a picture of himself at a younger age, with a few bug like appendages sticking out of his body. "Let me know."
As he went to leave the room and waved his crew over to escort Ticoga back to the surface, he turned for a last exchange of words. "Oh, and tell the empress I said hi!"
