"Do you know if Grimm dissolve in orbit like Dust does? It's easiest for us to place new facilities there. We can probably test that ourselves if you don't know. Oh, Ozpin said you couldn't leave the atmosphere though is that correct?"

Hmm, there's a test she hasn't done in a long time. "Grimm cannot survive in space, no. And I am indeed tied to Remnant's inner atmosphere."

"It's strange how much of this world's magic is locked here. The only exceptions seem to be aura, the Gods themselves and whatever they did to the moon. I expect we'll need to find an isolated island or deploy an aquatic facility. Somewhere on the ocean floor is probably safest in the event of a containment breech."

"Aquatic Grimm exist, but land and flying Grimm typically cannot swim," she offers. In truth, the aquatic varieties can be enormous and quite powerful, but there's no need to explain that just yet. if she can steer Starlight into relying on the ocean as a defense, then she keeps the option of using Leviathan, Karkinos, or the others to stage an "accident" later, and gain access to their research.

"That aligns with expectations. The Grimm mostly seem to behave like biological creatures. Our main motivation in choosing a facility location is that our research not make things worse for the people of this world. That would be impolite of us as guests."

"Naturally. Assuming, then, that you are able to build an appropriate facility...My control is not absolute, and my time and resources are not infinite. What you ask is no small favor; what are you prepared to offer in exchange?" 

Permalink

"We have a lot of resources but it's not clear to me what you might need I expect material wealth is largely beneath you at this point having lived as long as you have."

Permalink

"Largely correct. In many ways, I seek the same things you do. One never tires of the pursuit of knowledge." 

Permalink

"That makes sense, knowledge remains even as material things fall to the sands of time."

"This then, is my offer, in exchange for providing Grimm to study. In addition to assuring myself of the safety of your facilities, I want to know what aspects of my planet you are studying, and what you learn therefrom. I want to know the results of your experiments. I want to know the manner by which it is accomplished, and the means to replicate your experiments myself. I want to meet your scientists and engineers, and work directly with them on these projects. 

"Simply put, I want in."

"I'm afraid that's not possible, even if we trusted you enough to grant your request, it's simply impossible for us to provide you with the means to replicate all our experiments we often rely on individuals with a certain type of magic and the only way to get that requires travelling far from Remnant."

Permalink

How convenient for them. "If I cannot at least oversee these experiments, I see little reason to waste my time enabling them. My own projects demand much of me, and I have a world to save." 

Permalink

"Oversee seem to imply a measure of control and therefore seems unrelated to the ability to replicate an experiment. Maybe that isn't how you were using that word though."
