p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "Haha, don't worry, no offence taken. I am well aware of my years, but I count them more as a blessing than a curse. I'm afraid I have no big secrets to share, though - at least nothing you as a Mask Holder wouldn't already know, for I believe I have my Mask to thank for making me 'fit' enough; I am in good health, but there is no denying I've passed the days of my peak physique. As Solace, however, I feel...  renewed, should we say, if not even reborn. It feels like at least half of the years I've lived are suddenly shaken off my body, and thus, moving around is easy. Those items surely are magical, aren't they?"

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "Murder, obviously, is a crime and as such I condemn it. These are things you are more than welcome to report to me - in fact, I'd be glad if you did. I must note, though, that I'm not planning to judge any of our members without hearing their half of the story first. If any misdeeds are reported to me, I will want a personal word with the person in question instead of pulling any conclusions based on hearsay."

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "While I see some differences between me and Solace, they aren't so stark that I'd think of 'us' as separate people. Mainly, I feel a lot calmer when I have my Mask on - well, I do consider myself a calm person in general, but as Solace, I could use the word serene. There's something truly... cleansing in that Mask. I feel completely at peace with it on - so I figure you could say we do 'get along'."

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "Gladly! I've gotten us a very spacious two-story house located in the peaceful suburbs of Opelucid. The upstairs have been mostly reserved for bunk rooms: there's one for women, one for men and also one unisex if that's an option you'd prefer. Downstairs there's a spacious kitchen area that has everything your ordinary kitchen would, although I think I may need to buy some more utensils. The fridge and the cabinets have been stocked with basic groceries, but you can of course store your own food there as well. Next to the kitchen area, there's a large living room meant for relaxing. I've brought a television and a DVD player there, but I'm afraid the movie collection is still quite small as I wasn't sure if my movie tastes would please the majority, haha. There's also a bookshelf, but again, it's yet to be filled completely. If you have any movies or books you'd be willing to donate, that'd be most delightful! Finally, there are of course multiple toilets and two bathrooms.

Ah, wait- I didn't leave your possible pokemon friends out of the equation either! The house comes with a very spacious, fenced backyard that even has a small pond in case you want to let your friends out of their balls for a moment. They are, of course, welcome indoors as well - but I do ask you to keep play fights outdoors! I've also stocked one cabinet in the kitchen with basic medical supplies for 'mon in case there's a need fo them.

I hope you find the base comfortable - and if not, please do tell me. I warmly welcome any and all ideas for how to make it even more homely for all the White Veils!"

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni "Personally, I don't see myself as a 'higher up'. My title is the leader of White Veils, yes, but I wish to lead as our members' equal. I see my duty as a leader to be mainly of that of a supporter - I make sure everyone gets the necessary information and that they have sufficient resources to keep White Veils operational. This is also part of the reason why there is a leader in the first place: to keep things running smoothly. While I don't think it would be completely impossible for the capable people in White Veils to operate just as a group of individuals, getting important messages and information to reach everyone would be notably more challenging, especially in dire situations. Focus brings efficiency - and efficiency is what is needed in times like these. Of course I will give out an order to mobilize if the situation calls for it, but overall I'm no ruler - and I definitely am not above anybody else."

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "I'm sorry to hear of your experiences, but unfortunately I must say this is a matter that isn't mine to control. While I certainly hope most White Veils could trust each other and get along as a team, I cannot force our members to become friends. Some of our members prefer working solo and I plan to respect that choice. Of course I will step in if things start getting out of hand, but otherwise I trust you to be mature enough to sort out your differences without my input."

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "While I do believe that it would be great if White Veils and the police could work side by side, I don't think the time is right for that yet. Like you and your friend - Blitz, was it? - seem to suspect, explaining what the Masks are could very well prove more trouble than what it'd be worth, turning the outcome into a hindrance rather than an advantage. The police aim to keep the common public safe and the Masks with their powers could easily be deemed a threat to that, no matter in whose hands they were in at the time. The police has their responsibilities and we have ours - and while they do, admittedly, overlap at parts, for now it's best to keep to our own paths."

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "Generally speaking, I prefer working in the non-offensive wing and being more directly involved with helping the victims of the bad guys. The way I see it, removing a bad guys from the equation solves only half the problem; the damage they've caused has to be dealt with as well, otherwise they haven't truly been 'stopped' since the damage they've left behind still lives on. From what I've seen and heard, White Veils has plenty of capable fighters without me adding to the count - but of course I step in with my Mask when it's needed."

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "I don't think it's a matter of beliefs when the Black Masques have clearly stated what they're after. They want Masks for their selfish needs and don't care if their actions it puts our very world and also all of our lives at risk. While I don't condone unjustified retributions, I don't see how such behavior could be defended either.

You were the one to ask me what I thought of bad people with good intentions - now I'd like to ask you the same. How much do those good intentions weigh? Do the ends justify the means?"

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "Haha, as flattering as that is, I don't think I can take the honor of 'creating' the White Veils. The way I see it is that the White Veils existed from the day one - we just were scattered around instead of acting as a group. All I did was calling these like-minded people together and giving us a name to operate under and resources to back us up."

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "First and foremost, I expect them to follow White Veils' base ideology: using the abilities given to us by the Masks for good purposes as opposed to Black Masques' selfish, harmful goals. How they go about it is vastly up to them - whether it is by fighting crime or helping people in distress, working in a group or individually. However, I also expect a level of dedication in the sense that if there's a need to call out the members for a spesific task or mission, I can trust them to respond instead of bailing out. Joining the White Veils is voluntary but if someone joins us, I hope to that as a sign of will to commit to our cause."

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "... I'm sorry, but I'd call that a poor direction to approach the subject from. We White Veils don't do what we do in the name of benefits - unless you count the results our actions bring as such. Having a peaceful, safe world shouldn't be a goal you have to be paid to be willing to work for."

Now, there are many possible ways that could manifest in that I'm afraid I'd need more details before giving my final word on it - but in general, I do believe in giving people a chance. To me, having good intentions is enough of a proof that the person in question cannot be inherently bad, although they can be in the wrong."

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "Punishment system? Goodness, no - I don't want to create an atmosphere like that of a military or a prison. We're all here on our own terms because we have a common goal - we want to use our Mask-given abilities for the greater good. I'd like to believe that that's enough for our members to manage their responsibilities without strict rules to guide them. You know the mission, and how you go about it is your choice. However, if someone starts to go against what we as White Veils stand for, there will of course be repercussions - but at that point, the person in question would no longer be considered a White Veil, would they?"

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "My goal is the same as White Veils' as a whole: to bring an end to the calamities, keep the innocent safe and eventually restore peace... but I get a feeling that is not what you're asking, is it? Heh, well... it's alright. See, I'm an old man. I've lived a long and good life; been blessed with an amazing family and nowadays I even have wonderful grandchildren. I want to ensure they'll have a world where they can grow up safely and happily, and live at least as long as I have."

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "I must admit I'm slightly partial to Bug types such as that beautiful Durant on you. There's something about their features that just enchants me; the compound eyes, the segmented bodies, the jointed appendages... and so on and so forth. Although I guess I might be slightly biased, seeing the first Pokémon I ever caught was a Venonat. She was a really beautiful girl, and evolved into an even more beautiful Venomoth. Unfortunately she's passed away long since, but I have her offspring in my team so her memory lives on."

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "Honestly speaking, I don't feel like I chose White Veils as that would imply I could've gone for either or the two remaining options as well. However, I... didn't really see those other options being open for me. I couldn't even briefly consider them. White Veils was the only fathomable choice, the only open door. It felt natural; maybe you could say it was a step in a long journey I've been on for a while.

Without rambling further, when it comes to me, being White Veils is strongly entwined with who I am as a person. You, of course, are not me, so I'm afraid my personal experiences may not be that helpful towards your decision. You should listen to yourself first and foremost; learn to know who you are and the knowledge of where you want to be in life will soon follow. Of course this is a matter of 'easier said than done' - I know it well myself - but you seem like a resourceful young man. I'm sure you'll find your way eventually.

Of course, I hope joining our faction is not beyond your consideration. If you have any more questions to ask, or if you just want someone to talk to, my door is always open."

It's why I stepped forward now; I wish to get to know you better so you can trust me as much as I trust you. You members have proven your worth already so it's only fair for me to do the same. Setting up the resource center was, I hope, the first step in that. After all, actions speak louder than words do, don't they?"

p-no | Alec Icon by Delayni  "Ahaha, goodness, I do understand your concern, but I don't really have all the White Veils' numbers. I assure you, I only have the contact information of the members who have willingly given it to me. I do encourage it because that way the information that is sent out will reach the members as fast as possible, but some prefer to keep their lives more private and I respect that choice. It's not that big of a problem; in this day and age, networking is a really powerful tool. Even if I personally cannot reach all the members at once, I fully trust that those who know will spread the word."
