3. Pilot - Scene Two

EXT. MAIN DECK OF THE HESTIA - NIGHT (SAME)

 

SHAY SINCLAIR, 28 a major supervillain known as Wyvern with wyvern physiological transformation and minor temporary object transmutation abilities, lies on his back, dozing with BOTTLES OF BEER surrounding him, CLANKING together. He hears SHOUTS and gets to his feet, peering over the edge of the boat. He sees a blast of ice shards and hears YELLING, followed soon by a slew of profanity as a figure runs across the dark waters.

 

SHAY
What do we have here... 

 

Shay grabs one of the partially filled bottles and jumps from boat to boat, following after the figure on the water until he sees the person get onto a SMALL FISHING BOAT. Shay's eyes transform into reptilian slits to see better in the dark as he hides behind the sail of a SAIL BOAT.

 

EXT. SMALL FISHING BOAT - NIGHT (CONTINUOUS)

 

Issac, oblivious to being watched, trips about over the ropes, nets, and other fishing paraphernalia while trying not to tip the boat and cursing under his breath. 

 

ISSAC
...Goddamn stupid piece of shit bird. Fucking claws, what are they made of? 

 

Issac removes the top half of his suit and bundles it into a ball, pressing it to his injury to staunch the blood flowing from the long cut across his shoulder. He sits down in the boat, freezing the water around it to stop the rocking for a bit. 

 

EXT. SAIL BOAT - NIGHT (CONTINUOUS)

 

Shay laughs quietly when the figure SQUAWKS upon accidentally falling out of the boat when he tries to sit down, before freezing the water around the boat to keep it steady and trying again. 

 

SHAY
I love the green ones. They're adorable; so easy to manipulate. Oh. What's this? 

 

The person reaches up and pulls off the black DOMINO MASK from his face. The man shakes his head, dropping the mask to the side, and tilts his head up towards a SMALL LANTERN hanging over the boat. Shay's eyes roam over the revealed features. 

 

SHAY (CONT'D)
Oh, you poor little snowflake. You've just made a huge mistake. 

 

Shay smirks wickedly as he makes his way back to the pier. He tosses his beer bottle into the water with a low SPLASH.
