Orion looked at the other android, taking in the strange configuration - all sharp angles and pronounced edges. It was taller, stockier, and more overt in almost every way. It was, in essence, the polar opposite of Orion's smooth and rounded form. The contrast was significant. He blinked, surprise faintly etched upon his face.
"Hello -" the other android started in greeting, but was interrupted; in the reflection of its visor, Orion saw a pair of the MA15 units that had chased Orion earlier emerge from an alleyway. Through their reflections he rapidly processed their movements towards him, breaking them down into frame-by-frame stills, analysing and assessing in a fraction of a second. The first sprinted towards him while the second boosted itself into an arcing jump over the first.
"- who are you?"
Orion pivoted and pushed himself into a small jump simultaneously so that his centre of gravity dropped and the frame of his body rotated around his pelvis. Just as the first android reached him, Orion's foot smashed into its head with a shattering blow, knocking it from its feet but continuing its forward momentum. Orion continued his turn and gracefully pirouetted beneath the first. He landed on the floor in a crouching position and, pivoting once more, he pistoned his legs so that his form shot from the ground like an arrow. He smashed into the second unit and the two span clumsily through the air, trading and blocking blows with lightning speed.
They hit the ground with a metallic thud. Orion's knee was planted against the neck of the android, his hand on the sparking remains of its head. He had used their combined weight and momentum to ram the other into the ground, destroying its CPU.
He looked up at the strange robot that had greeted him. "Hello. I am Orion. Who are you?"
