While the news that the infection was contained seemed to pacify Isola if only for a moment Biggs was still wary and would keep an eye on Eliza even though he had been the one to mention trusting Ensign Hunter. Still the revelation that this was the old Captain's Devil Fruit did give him more options to consider as Captain Barabosa was a powerful figure in the Privateers before his death and yet there was never any mention of his Devil Fruit. Would that mean that he had never had a reasont o tap into it, which wouldn't make sense due to the fact that one typically showed their trump card when they were about to die. "I would appreciate that Joe, either way I believe Linwood has created a plan to survive this battle. We should hear him out now that he knows of the strength of our remaining comrades." Biggs said deciding to give Linwood his due as he hadn't ignored him he merely wanted to save mentioning the plan after trying to increase morale.

As for Biggs he would step to the side and await whatever it was their new Cook would do regarding the recently gained Devil Fruit, he would however keep the other one to his side while looking at the individuals in the distance trying to figure out who would be the best to gift new power. Often times a Devil Fruit was what separated those who were doomed to be forgotten from those who would make their mark on history for better or for worse no matter how short of a blip they were in time. As such with a fruit he hopefully had the opportunity to turn one of those who hadn't specialized into individuals actually worthy of having his back, but at the same time he could instead keep the Fruit and choose someone who was already skilled in order to give them more power. As he stewed in his thoughts he kept an eye on the cook so that when he was done preparing the fruit he would be able to eat or perhaps drink it, immediately.

Keeping to himself while listening to what others had to say, Linwood kept an open ear about what was going on. The introduction to the chef privateer prompted Linwood to give the man a proper salute. Whether the chef by the name of Joe acknowledged Linwood's casual salute or not, that was up to him. He was also happy that one of his comrades that fought against the monstrous vampires won't be lost to them on the other side, making sure that their life was much more secure for the time being. Linwood's intelligence was valued, but he didn't have time to research historic lore on the creatures. At the very least, Linwood had to use what he learned and educate his comrades.

"There are two types of creatures that we came face to face against, fledglings and the women. The little creatures almost always attack ins warms, so they would be sent in waves first. However, with the highly capable, their speed and strength are incomparable to the average privateer. The numbers game is fitting to the footsoldiers of the vampire army. The female vampires tend to have some form of leadership over them, a bit up to servitude. I remember her voice from before, it invoked a strange feeling from inside of me. It's very clear to me that some form of hypnotism exists within the female vampires capabilities, we take them out first. In general, I think that the foot soldiers are incapable of acting in an organized manner without orders. If we manage to get rid of those who are higher up on the chain, the discord should suffice for a final push of their elimination. The regular privateers can fend off the ghouls, providing support as we eliminate the leaders and therefore buy time and eliminate instruction. However, we don't engage the source of this plague unless there is a 70% or better chance of victory, which all scales at the time of day. They will be their strongest at night, so expect the worse.

Hunter agreed with Linwoods potential strategy however he decided to add more information to it seeing as the Historian was lacking in some respect perhaps due to not encountering the other type of enemy. "There exists another type we have taken to calling them Vamps, as we noticed that Ghouls can be of either gender as long as they were elderly or sickly prior to their conversion, the male vampires are somewhat in-between the Females and the Ghouls not so much in command as they are the shock-troops of the Count's forces. Furthermore of those we have a set of problem cases, on the port before the Captain was killed we had reports of certain trouble makers and we figured we would handle them when we had finished repairing the ship and recovering from our battle with the Sparrow Pirates." Hunter said pausing as he began to hand bounty posters of the individuals in question around so that those present could identify them on sight.

"We can confirm that Beatrice "Talon" Skye and Lily Fleur have been converted to the Count's Mistresses, due to Ensign Faith's capture we can include her in that number as well. Which means in addition to the count we have 3 potential leaders of the incoming vampire horde. Furthermore if the island has been taken over it means that in addition to that, it is most likely that Vash Wilder & Cali "Swag" Boi have also been added to his forces. Both Beatrice "Talon" Skye & Lily Fleur are dangerous individuals who have worked together in the past, Beatrice is an Aero Tribe member whereas Lily has skills in seduction which has proven dangerous to us in the past. As for Vash Wilder he is a gunner not much else is known about him but that is because he hails from Port Newand and only recently turned to crime. Cali "Swag" Boi however previously used to be a member of the Shogunate prior to defecting and becoming a pirate. All in all they are all rather dangerous, in addition since we may come into conflict with her Ensign Faith specializes in Soru, Geppo, Shigan and was working her way to getting transferred into Aegis Pol." he said with a frown as he didn't want to have to tell the other privateers her skill set but seeing as she was now most likely apart of the enemy it was necessary.

"All of our best fighters are in this room. Thus who do you think should go up against who, this isn't factoring in the Count who I thinks we should deal with when the others have been dealt with as a group rather than trying to take him on solo and risking capture and conversion to his forces."

Joe would scan the fruit over for a second before pulling out his own blade and poking a small hole in it, of course he could work with most fruit but he could only do certain things with specific types of course it would take some time for the fruit to convert he would begin juicing it while it was converting even sitting down in the room and preparing the needed bowl and such.

Isolabella simply stood there and absorbed the information by Linwood and the Ensign. Thankfully, she had her fair share of encounters with all types of vampires so she knew what to expect from each and every one of them. Out of the three, she was the least combat capable due to the fact that she was a lazy bitch that preferred to sleep her life away instead of training, so if she somehow managed to make this out alive she would have to train her pretty little ass off so that she could actually be a useful member of the crew as for now she’s just a doctor without doctor abilities. A bit ironic. Thankfully, Rhia had some skill, even though she was just as lazy as her, that and if push came to shove she had that secret ability to rely on once the going gets tough.

She would turn her attention towards Biggs and the new guy and watched with some interest to see how he would go about to prepare the fruit for Biggs to consume. Once he was finished and handed it over she would turn to Biggs to see how well he would be able to stop himself from blowing chunks all over the room as he tried to consume the weird fruit.

Biggs would see that Joe was preparing the Devil Fruit and would nod before noticing that Isolabella was looking at him causing him to smirk at her. "I'm guessing you were the one to deal with Gerald right, how strong was he? Do you think the others would be around that level of strength or was he special because he was originally a Privateer like us." He said posing a question to her in order to get her into the conversation as he had noticed her relative disinterest in the preparations. He figured that in order for them to have a proper strategy they would need to account for what everyone could do as while Linwood had seen some of what he could do they didn't really know what Isolabella or Rhiannon were capable of. That being said they also didn't know what Ensign Hunter or Eliza Wood could do either, so maybe that would be brought up sooner or later.

He was nervous as he knew that while he was capable in a fight and he only become better when there was a numbers advantage against him he wasn't good at keeping other people alive. He needed to make sure that he had people he could count on fighting alongside him and while the three who had accompanied him to the clinic were reliable for the most part the rest of the Privateers seemed...weak. He didn't want to judge anyone before he truly saw them fight thus he held his opinion of Joe, Ensign Hunter & Eliza but maybe it was wishful thinking.

"A quick analysis is to take on Ensign faith with all of us, she's too skilled for just one person to take on alone, so maybe she should be saved for last. As for the split up of the fighting forces, I'm not too combat orientated to formulate a battle strategy in regards to their abilities. I am simply a historian, but if the chef joe was to fight, it's better to send unknowns on both sides against each other in the case of cali "Swag" boy.  The gunner, it's an assumption that long-range projectiles will be the problem. I specialize in  Rankyaku when it comes to Rokushiki, so that is an equalizer if it falls down to long-range capabilities. Getting in close to finish the fight should be the main deal, and a return fire of long-range attacks can make me a good match for him.  My fur coat can keep me alive against a fight with that man.":

Pushing up his glasses,  Linwood would take out his iron baton and tap it on the desk as if he was some kind of teacher that demanded attention.



"Beatrice Tallon should face Isolabella and her trusty companion Rhia.  I don't recall ever seeing them fight, but I trust them enough to know that they are well capable individuals. She can also face Lilly if that was an option. I know nothing of seduction at all, but if women have a natural resistance, Isolabella would be a great choice. I also believe in the love that Rhia has for Isolabella over the seduction capabilities that Lilly has, that they can overcome that."

Clearing his throat, Linwood would go over to Tank. "Our reliable captain I had the pleasure of following behind.  His battle capabilities are strong, and he seems to gain from attention. If the case may be that Lilly seduced quite a few people and is with a group, the quickest sweep is to put tank against her. We will use that crowd against her by keeping our captain extra motivated. As for putting Tank against Beatrice, I think it'll be a fair fight that ends in his victory. Either way, this is a tossup for how the last two will go through."

Taking a seat, Linwood would put his iron baton away.


"Then again, I am only a historian. "

Ensign Hunter would listen to the plan seeing that some aspects were fine while others he would revise on his own, in general though he did agree with a good chunk of Officer Linwood's suggestions, which as a result allowed him to get a better strategy for the upcoming battle. "Alright, I've heard your contributions and I've made a decision. In this battle Isola you'll be fighting against Beatrice while Rhia will be fighting against Lily Fleur as they have worked together in the past it means it is only more likely that they will try and fight together when they attack and you two have the best teamwork out of my assembled officers. I will deal with Ensign Faith as I am the most familiar with her fighting capabilities with Officer Joe backing me up, Officer Snape will be dealing with Vash Wilder, Officer Biggs I'm leaving Cali "Swag" Boi to you as despite his weird name his listed bounty is higher than the rest second only to Talon. Eliza you are in charge of making sure our comrades don't die while we single out our targets." Ensign Hunter said giving everyone their assigned objectives and with a grim face would pause.

"We don't know when they are going to arrive but for now you are all dismissed, I will handle getting the other officers in battle positions with the intention of ensuring our base does not fall. You are free to make any preparations while we still have time." he said turning and then walking out of the room to attend to his duties.

Biggs would nod before finding a seat near where Joe was working on juicing his Devil Fruit, he didn't have much else to do but wait for him to finish so that he could drink it and reap the benefits of consuming an esoteric fruit like the one he had acquired. He was still a bit confused as to what it could do, but he would leave it up to chance and would try and make sure that unlike it's last owner he would live long enough to unlock it's true potential. He would try his best to rest in preparation for the battle ahead as he was sure that he would need it though at any time that Joe finished he would snap out of his restful snake and drink the Devil juice.

Joe would begin slicing things with one hand around the room as he waited to juick the other fruit, he hoped that he could stock up on food so he could be of some help to who he was suppose to be assisting, he did not over think his postion in the upcoming battle he knew his job was not to fight unless backed into a corner but instead he was needed to make sure that the ensign had enough reserves at any time to launch a major assault on the enemy and hopefully a relentless one. Joe would scan the man in the room with his over for a second, he was a scary individual who seemed very ready to do battle it would be worth it to possibly build a specific diet path for this man.

Joe would further inspect him his body seemed to be lacking in proper nutrition causing Joe to clear his throat before handing the juice over and using it to get the conversation started.

"Just to be quick and not waste much time. What types of energy do you mainly use for combat. It won't help at the moment but in the future it will be good if i don't need to ask. Likewise i will try and drop off some Stamina replenishing items to each member of the defense before the real battle gets going on my end and i focus on my main assist goal. I only work with fruit and at the moment drinks so they should be fairly easy to keep on your person."

Biggs would take the offered drink and down it marveling at the sweet taste of the fruit as it slid down his throat upon eating it he could immediately feel the effects of his body changing however the most pressing need to consume more Devil Fruit arose in his stomach. He would be unable to resist the compulsion breaking the gourd which held the Devil Fruit he had been keeping hidden away for months now and taking a bite out of it and even though it was utterly disgusting he had to swallow it before the urge completely subsided. Unlike before he knew something had changed but otherwise nothing was different from his consumption of the Feral Feral Fruit - Model: Chimera other than some sense of fulfillment and a Devi Fruit in his hand that despite the bite seemed to still have all the markings on it. In fact where he had bit would actually close up leaving a bite size divot in the fruit yet it appeared as if it was a natural occurrence. "That was...magnificent. I'd offer you this fruit if you wanted it at the very least you could feed it to your weapon? Either way thank you, I needed this boost." Biggs said trying to harness his Devil Fruit powers and yet he was unable to, some how he felt like something was missing and until it was found he would be unable to ever use his newly gained abilities.

"I use stamina mostly, however occasionally I harness my life-force whether through blood or sacrificing my health to produce more powerful results. It's likely that most people on this crew would use the same or similar things, except for perhaps Isolabella and Eliza Wood they just seem a little different don't you think? he said though he couldn't exactly say why he felt such a way other than the fact that Isolabella was a Hokkai and it was known that her clan originated from the Shinobi World, whereas Eliza was able to contain something which had turned everyone else affected by it into blood thirsty monsters.
