nd the weapon systems.
Vincent would have to rely on both of them to fight the sandmen.

Fortunately, their inspections matched the earlier scans.
The mech did not show any signs of premature failure due to faults in the design.

Delivering a defective product was a big taboo in the mech community! This was especially so for custom mechs!

”There ’s something missing on this mech. ” Gloriana frowned in thought.
”Ah! It ’s missing our signature looks! Without them, this mech doesn ’t fully express our identity! ”

I don ’t think Vincent appreciates our signature looks. ”

”Why not, Ves? ”

”Vincent is a client who is very particular about the image his mech conveys.
Adding a third eye to the Adonis Colossus has the potential to ruin its masculine appearance.
It might instead make it look like a freak! As for the hexagon, I don ’t think Vincent will appreciate a brand that is highly associated with Hexers on his mech. ”

Gloriana innocently blinked.
”I don ’t see the problem. ”

”It directly clashes against his preferences! Do you know how he would feel if his proud, masculine mech carries the mark associated with female supremacists? ”

Ves was sure that Vincent would blow up as soon as he saw the hexagon!

”I can ’t stand leaving out our symbols! I still want to add them to the Adonis Colossus! Our signature looks are meant to promote our product identities starting from the new generation! Making an exception right away is extremely grating! ”

After a quick discussion, they decided to compromise.

”Let ’s add our signature looks to the mech in a way that isn ’t immediately obvious. ” Ves eventually suggested.
”We can place it in the cockpit or place our marks on the back of the mech. ”

Gloriana grinned.
”I have a better idea! ”

She activated her comm and activated a design program before loading in a schematic of the design.
She temporarily peeled off the broad V-shaped codpiece from the mech and began to add his third eye and her hexagon at a very sensitive spot!

”This.. ” Ves was speechless.

Once she tweaked the placement and size of the additions, she added back the codpiece which covered them from view!

”I call this the lower surprise! ”

Ves scratched his smooth-shaven skin in shock.
”Gloriana… your humor is much more wicked than I thought! ”

”Hihihi! I can have some fun too, you know! ”

”Isn ’t this a violation of our responsibilities, though? If Vincent finds out that we added something extra to the lower portion of his mech, he will not be pleased. ”

”Relax, Ves.
Few people should inspect our mech design in detail.
In the schematics, the codpiece will conveniently block the addition of our signature looks. ”

”What if an enemy shoots the codpiece into pieces? ”

Gloriana smirked.
”If there is one thing I can say about boys like Vincent, it ’s that they would rather die than get shot in their lower parts! ”

Surprisingly, Ves agreed with her assertion! He could very well imagine that Vincent would do anything to avoid getting his manhood shot!

Though it wasn ’t entirely proper to prank Vincent with this peculiar design change, Ves and Gloriana already bent some rules.
It was no big deal to bend the rules some more.

The fact that Gloriana took the initiative to act playful at work was a sign of progress in his eyes.

He did not think it was a good idea for her to remain stiff and exacting in her work.
Making her more flexible and adaptable like him was much more preferable.

”This mech is missing something else I think. ” Gloriana pressed her finger to her lips.
”I just can ’t quite figure out what.
I still haven ’t recovered yet, or else I would have been able to come up with an answer by now. ”

”This mech is still missing its most essential spiritual component. ”

”I know that, Ves, but there ’s something else about our work that doesn ’t seem right. ”

Ves puzzlingly looked up at the tall and expensive machine.
As far as he knew, it did what it was supposed to do, and pretty well at that.
While the custom mech was not as capable as the Transcendent Messenger or the Loquacious Raphael, it possessed its own strengths.

”I know! ” She gasped! ”A cape! A rich, red cape that conveys the full majesty of this mech! Isn ’t that what you added to Vincent ’s first custom mech? ”

Ves grimaced.
I hoped that all of you would have forgotten about it, though.
Adding fabric to a mech isn ’t exactly the best idea.
It ’s especially foolish to do so when the mech is meant to withstand a lot of laser fire.
The cape will surely end up in tatters by the time a battle is over! ”

”I really think you should reconsider.
Instead of adding a cape made out of fabric, why not make use of the Rescue Particle Generator that you like so much? ”

That was actually a decent idea.
Making a cape out of glowing red vapor particles would enhance the stature of the mech while preserving its dignity during battle.
This was because as long as the additional module remained intact, the cape would not incur any damage!

Ves borrowed the active design suite projected by her comm and quickly added the particle generator.
He tried to program the module to project various fluid red capes.

”The cape isn ’t big enough. ” Gloriana shook her head.
”Don ’t forget that this mech is supposed to inspire the public.
It won ’t be able to do that if the mech and its cape isn ’t distinguishable enough in wide-angle battle footage where there is a lot of clutter in view. ”

”How big do you want to make it, then? ”

”Vincent is a very insecure boy, so he needs an extra-large cape.
How about this! ”

She manipulated the interface and stretched out the cape to an exaggerated degree! It was so long that it partially made the Adonis Colossus look like a snake!

”It looks as if Vincent is overcompensating for something if he pilots this mech! ”

”Exactly! According to my understanding of his personality, he should definitely love this addition! ”
