A bored Russ decided to go sightseeing and explore the regions of another planet. Why? No reason...he just felt like leaving Earth to its own devices. The half-breed blue-haired vigilante heard whispers about a village housing mercenaries, bounty hunters, and the lowest of scum which got him curious. Why would all of them gather in one place without worrying someone would catch them? Are they mad? Russ investigated a small village called Mercenary Outpost, a little too on the nose but who is he to judge?
In silence, Russ walked forward aimlessly, ignoring the funny looks he got from bounty hunters and mercenaries taking notice of his presence. Two guys snickered and point their fingers at Russ.
"Look, get a load of this guy."
"Haven't seen him before this part of town."
"He's a Saiyan but he's got Earthling written ALL over him."
The boys are within earshot, and the volume of their voices decreased over time as Russ kept walking and pays them no mind. Were they planning to stick around to haze Russ? No, not really. They left to go fulfill a contract job taken from the bounty board, wasting time on a nobody does not put cash in their pockets. Speaking of a bounty board, Russ found one outside of a pub, a monitor with a HUD detailing bounty rewards for murdering or capturing certain individuals, errand objectives, and transporting illegal goods to another place.
None of it interests the crime-fighter, the money is more than enough to pay off bills but aside from running errands, the rest of the jobs compromise his morals. Although if Russ were assigned to capture a criminal for cash, he wouldn't decline. He would take them off the streets and be rewarded for it while keeping his hands clean. As tempting as that sounds, the pub caught his eye. Food and a drink are very hard to pass up.
Russ went inside the establishment and discovered it to be mostly vacant aside from five customers eating and drinking on a table far away from the entrance. "Hello? Is the owner here?" scanning for the head of the establishment.
