It was loud in the assembly hall as the new recruits gathered to hear Commander Beck speak. He seemed to be running a little late and the room filled with idle chatter. A hush fell over the crowd as an unfamiliar man took the stage.
"Greetings," he said in a voice that echoed throughout the hall. "I am Director Lazeer. I'm in charge of the business aspects of the Vindicta Force and I guess you could say I'm top dog around here." His light-hearted tone received small chuckles from the audience. "You may be wondering where Commander Beck is. He's taking care of some urgent matters so I decided to greet you all personally. It's been a while since we've gotten such a promising group of prospects and I wanted to get a good look at you all. Each of you have your own reasons for fighting and I see the flames of passion in each and every one of your eyes. I'm quite interested in seeing how well you will do. Welcome to the Vindicta Force and, try not to die." He gave a playful smile with his last sentence and walked offstage. Jenova then took the stage and began giving orders. "Report to your departments right away. If you get lost, we have maps posted all throughout the facility. You should have already unpacked your things in the dormitory. If you need equipment, it will be issued at your department. That is all. Dismissed!" Everyone began to file out of the room and headed towards their departments.
Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession
The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

John strolled over to the table, "Eager doesn't even begin to cover it." he answered. He thought for a moment, pondering his possible moves, then landed on the class E missions. "I wouldn't want to be predictable, and I haven't got any tricks up my sleeve, yet. I'll sample an E, get a feel for military operations, try a D, get used to working with a team, and then hit the C grades." He rummaged around in his pocket, taking out a notepad, "To this day I've only ever failed one mission, I'm intent on never letting it happen again. Money's not a problem, so I'll bide my time - make sure I've worked off my lunch before I go swimming - if you get what I mean."
He idly flicked open the E file; as he expected they were incredibly simple missions, bits and pieces he could have done years ago - but the entertainment of a simple mission after the burden of his last job seemed enticing. "So which one of these puppies shall I take?"
