The trail, what of it there is, is leading toward New York.

It isn't a place she's used to being asked about. It isn't that she doesn't do work in that city, there are just fewer poeple who know of her existence there.

Crouched on a rooftop, Shiva looks down at the activites in the alleyway below.

One of those men has the information she's looking for.

It is unforunate that they seem to have illicit business this evening. It will not be completed.

There is no noise as the shadow drops down the few stories, just before appearing behind one of the men.

"One of you knows what I want to know. It would be wise to tell me now."

*Silently, an arrow zips past Shiva penetrating the wall behind her. It was a warning shot from across the alley, on the other rooftop.* There is a man crouched on the other side. Although hidden in the shadows, Shiva can see that his hair is red. Another arrow is notched and ready.

That will make things more interesting.

Shiva moves, every motion fluid and decisive. Reaching out, she grabs one of the men, all of the four with her starting to pull weapons, and makes a motion, causing him to fall to the floor.

The archer? Not ignored at all but he'll have to be shooting into a melee in darkness. At a woman who has no problems putting these men in the way.

Having made his point, the archer quietly waits for the brawl to be over and for Shiva to come to him.

It doesn't take very long, though one of them does manage to get a shot off. It misses.

After a few moments, she looks at the men, some expression on her face, before she climbs up to the top of the building, crouching.

"Glad I caught you. Been hearing all sorts of rumors about you and my daughter."

"Your daughter?"

Shiva stands from her crouch, a faint frown on her brow.

"The word is that Cheshire is getting maternal, and you plan to help train Lian. By train, I mean kidnap and take her away from me. What's the deal? Now, I know if I let you get near me, you can kick my ass. You'll have trouble doing that with no kneecaps."

"Cheshire." The word is said with the more emotion than most people ever heard of from Shiva. She doesn't seem too happy with Cheshire.

"If I were to train your daughter, it would be to hurt Cheshire." She doesn't mention the part where children, for the most part, are off limits. Once they start making adult decisions... that's something else.

"The word is that you won't lie if you give your word of honor, will you give it?" Roy asks, still training his bow on her.

Shiva's eyes narrow.

"What do you wish me to promise, exactly?"

"Swear that you have no designs or plans for Lian. If she ever seeks you out when she's an adult, that's your call. But until she's eighteen, her little butt belongs to me."

A thoughtful look crosses the woman's face, before she shakes her head just faintly. Her body languages looks relaxed but believing that gets people killed.

"I can promise that I have no plans for her. I will not promise not to train her if she seeks me out and it worthy of it, at any age."

::Roy smiles, trying to turn on the old Harper charm.:: "I suppose that's all I can ask for. Will you tell me if she ever comes to you?"

"Unless she asks me not to..."

Shiva gives a faint smirk a the attempt at being charming. No doubt he is but it takes a lot more than charm with this woman.

::Roy grins even more:: "Come on, can't we work something out? Don't tell me the old Harper charm is fading? I'd have to go into hiding, ashamed."

"It is possible."

There is a pause, "I am not charmed." It isn't that /he/ isn't charming, it is just that he'd probably have better luck with the wall over there.

"That's ok, I swore before God and man that I'd never date another supervillian, except for Catwoman. That said, I'll tell my people the rumor about you was false. We should keep in touch. I suspect Cheshire washoping we'd kill each other first and ask questions later."

There is a faint arching of Shiva's brows at the dating a supervillain comment, before she gives a faint smile.

"That was a futile plan on her part. She would have done better to send Connor."

::Harper continues to smile.:: "Maybe, but then you wouldn't have had my charming personality to deal with. And while, I could trade quips all night with you, I have other people to see. I think our business is done, yes?"

"I believe it is."

Shiva inclines her head toward Roy and then drops off of the edge of the building.

::muttering:: "That's it. I'm telling Ollie you have a crush on him."

Arsenal waits a moment and then leaves. There are still other informats he needs to get to before Shiva.
