Prologue: Locked Away
It was late one night or...at least he assumed it was night. Stuck in this laboratory with no windows in this god forsaken house of pain that might as well be Hell had messed with his sense of time. He sat in the corner of his tiny glass container, hugging his legs close to him while looking at the floor of his tiny trap. He took the time to raise his head; no person was in the room with him. It was just him, all of him.
He looked to his left at the far side of the lab and saw his own organs on display in glass containers filled with a clear, watery liquid bubbling with air and nutrients and preservatives to keep them alive as machines made them work. To make his heart pump, to force his lungs to inflate and deflate, to force his dismembered arm and hands to twitch all moving thanks to the commands of the machine. The worse was probably what was done to his brain: electrodes and wires carefully planted in strategic regions and stems of his brain that all led from the top of the liquid-filled sphere and then into the old holographic projection device, giving him his current form.
He should be dead, his cadaver surgically chopped into different pieces and then being forced to see doctors and scientists to poke and prod and slice into them to see your reaction. He looked down at his hand; it was transparent and colored a dull green like the rest of his form. Sometimes they would send volts of electricity through the electrodes to his brain to hurt him, it was the only way they could nowadays. When that happened he couldn't help but scream as his holographic form twist and distort from the pain his mind was experiencing, which prevented it from focus on keeping his image.
Sometimes, they did it as part of an experiment...or...at least they claimed it was. Though most of the time they did it as a means to punish him. The people holding him, the Guys in White or simply G.I.W., may be incompetent when it comes to catching ghosts without any assistance but when they do, they are nightmarish in their containment and research methods, but even then they make mistakes. When they made him take on this holographic form thanks to an outdated machine, they seemed to have overlooked the fact that his mind was in the system.
When they lobbed off his head and removed his brain, they incidentally plugged him into their system. He was like a virus, scanning their documents, their blueprints and taking them straight into his brain. Yet when he first felt that shock to his mind that felt as if his mind was going to cook from the inside out, he was forced to leave the inner workings of the computer system of the base. He slipped up and they made sure he got reprimanded. He forgot how long he was here, the torture and lack of any windows or clocks made time travel differently. Hours seemed to be days, days onto months.
There was no escape.
Yet, he wasn't sad; he already shed all of his tears. No. The emotion filling him up was anger, rage at the ones who put him here. The ones he once cared and loved as his team, his friends, his family: The Teen Titans. Just even thinking of them made his digitized fist clench as rage bubbled with in him like boiling lead. Yet...there was no way for him to get the vengeance he desired, to carry out the vendetta that was rightfully his. He closed his eyes and tried to enjoy this moment of peace. He couldn't sleep of course; an eyeless mind can't achieve that luxury.
All he can do is rest, for in the morning he would be reintroduce to pain bolting through his fleshly lobes, destabilizing his AI form, people cutting into his organs in front of him and dreams of revenge he could never have. That is until the distinctive sound of an explosion going off in the distance made his eyes shoot open. He rose to his feet as he heard blows landing and people crying out in pain before dying. He heard footsteps running down the hall."This way! We have to keep her out of labs!" One of them shouted before they were blasted away with a flash of lilac colored light.
He stared at the door to his lab as an easily recognizable figure opened it and entered his chamber. "Blackfire...?" He called out to the dark-hired Tamaranean. His voice didn't even sound human, it was just barely unemotional static, having a pause due to the slow pace that his thoughts could be converted to words that could speak through this holographic form.
The girl was around his age, maybe even a year older, and was honestly attractive. Her black-violet hair reached down to the center of her spine as she looked at him with her narrow eyes that matched the color of her hair. She wore grey armor on her arms, legs and around her stomach with a black top and skirt. Danny just stared at her. "What...are you doing here?" Danny spoke to her from behind the glass that was keeping his form in place.
Blackfire looked at him; her eyes went wide when she first saw him. "Danny? W-What did they do to you?" She asked as she looked at his current state. Danny merely lowered his head and turned to his wired up brain. She followed his gaze till she saw his organs on display. She approached his brain and paced across staring at his pieces till she came across the last piece of him the GIW kept: His eye.
"They incinerated…everything else…this is all that's left of me." Danny said in a defeated. "But why are you here...? How did you find this place?"
"Slade," she answered simply, yet Danny stiffed when he heard that name. "He told me that the Titans turned you over to these people and I was to help you get out. Finding out where they kept you was tedious but these people are supposed to combat ghosts, they never expected an alien warrior to come blasting in and making them talk was easy."
Danny merely stared at her. "Why…would you and Slade want to free me?"
Blackfire turned to him. "Slade wants you as an apprentice, I want to help you because…" She frowned, "You're the only one I honestly liked when I came looking for Starfire and met the rest of the Titans," she said as she placed her hand against the glass. "It…breaks my heart to see you like this." Danny merely stared at her blankly. "Let me help you, I can take you back to Slade and he can restore you and together we can take revenge on the Titans for what they did to you."
Danny stared at her hand pressed up against the glass; his hesitation wasn't because of doubt or whether it was even a good idea. If the devil himself came to him and offered him a way out of this hell he would gladly take it. He just had to take this moment and just look upon the twist of fate that he found himself in. He placed his hand against hers from the other side of the glass. "When your allies betray you…you have to turn to your enemies for help." He said with a nod.
Blackfire smiled back at him, she could tell that she was going to have a lot of fun in this future together.
