Koriu Memory was looking around the entrance of an old cave, well as Kamen Rider Accel that is. This cave is filled with ancient magic. There Koriu as Accel moved closer to the cave with the hope of finding out a bit more history of these riders which he is now a part of. When he asked about riders from Princess Celestia and Princess Luna all they said was to find this cave and that he will haveto help the Princesses as its is the rider's duty. Accel agreed although he wonders as he stand in front of the cave what did they mean by," It is tradition for the carving of the year."
Koriu looked behind him to see if anyone followed him to this spot.

That adventure's come and gone. Detouring to Ponyville to visit me old testing grounds. I can only hope this crystal does as Solven intends it to do. He thought. Darrian was moving fast through the dense trees.
A shadow to any other being looking, he slinked and slipped through the foliage, tracking something, or somepony. A brief shillouette, and the hunt was on. He was itching to test Darklight's crystal modification, which would effective turn the blade into a bladed hoof.
The shadow seemed to stop at a cave, looking at it carefully. Darrian observed it for a second, behind a thick bushel of leaves and green. The shadow briefly flickered and turned, and Darrian moved back abit, to prevent himself from being spotted. His hoof automatically and instinctively reached for his blade, which he had temporarily sheathed to make it easier to hide.
Koriu looked around not knowing who was tracking him but he was going to find out," Whoever you are show yourself. Relax if your a friendly then i will not attack unless to defend myself." Koriu move in closer to see if he could see the pony or whatever that was following him..

Damn, he's on to me, unless he's bluffing. No chances, damnit, no chances. He silently assessed in his mind. He slowly and quietly back away, finding more cover, and when he finally did, he managed to scamper up a tree with the help of his wings, then propel himself behind the other pony's position.
He observed him. Not very dangerous, but could be concealing objects. Though the tone of his voice sounded to be of no threat. He didn't have all day to linger, and especially not in the trees. A meet and greet session it is then. he made up his mind.
Darrian silently and stealthily dropped out from the tree. Facing the pony. "That." he began "Is the question you should ask yourself and answer to me." Darrian said. "And no funny tricks. If I'm right, you only want to talk." he added.
Koriu smiled under his helmet, this pony was good. "Kamen Rider Accel, speed is my game so who are you and whats your game? Mind you if your a Dopant or one of those cyborg-golems then i will be forced to attack you.... but something tells me your not either of them."

Darrian quickly tried to process what he had just said. "Cyborg? Dopant?" He asked, clearly confused. Then he remembered Solven mentioned something about mechanical beings who infused machinery into their skin, some fictitious fad of the future.
He regained his composure. "My apologies. It's not everyday someone announces that a fictional being actually exists and is a threat. I'm Darrian Swifen. I have no game. But if you must, I am formerly titled Sergeant of the 13th Ghost Wolves. And no, we don't exist on paper."
"And no, do I look like I have pieces of metal sticking in or out of me? I'm just veteran with a very long past and a hand for working the forge." Darrian said.
Darrian then continued to size up the other pony. He seems cocky, but that might not be his undoing. He seems a worthy opponent judging by his equipment and physical appearance, but that's just jumping to conclusions. He thought.
"Heh oh you guys are on paper but then again its not any paper guys like me can see anyway," said Koriu as Accel," I've heard of you and your most recent exploits from the owner of the jewels you help save and her people of course, with the help of one of my brother-in-arms. In fact i'm doing some stuff for the princesses here... some sort of initiation as a rider. Wanna come?"

"Your comrade seems... Respectable." Darrian began. "He didn't exactly 'help'. Collaborate is more correct. We did both try to disclaim credit for ending that fiasco at Canterlot." he said, pausing becore continuing. "So sure, if it's no problem, I'd like to follow you into this... Cave. I'd like to know more about you guys. You do after all, don't appear on paper as what you seem to be."
"That's because we don't," said Koriu," We are how do you say Unofficial Agents."
"Look i don't know much myself, i only just recently took up the mantle of Kamen Rider Accel. What i do know is that One: There are other Kamen Rider, Two: All riders sear loyalty to the Royal Sisters, and Three: In the cave is some sort of old abandoned headquarters or something that I need to visit... and that whoever Kamen Rider Agito is he has yet to visit this place. And all of this came from Princess Luna so i have no clue whats true and whats not at the moment. At less until we go into the cave."
"By the way do you know of the two monsters i ask you were about are? The cyborg-golem and the Dopant?"

"I've been to some of the most pony-forbidden places in Equestria.I've run through temples dating back to ancient times, I've seen daemons, ghosts, spirits, monsters. I've slain entire hydras. Yet, I still have no bucking clue what in Celestia's name your talking about." Darrian shaked his head in confusion and general defeat, seriously not knowing what he was talking about.
"In any case, we should get inside quickly. Only a fool stands still in what is considered the open in a forest where monster's call it home. It's suicide, and no good for both our health." Darrians aid.
"Heh i see then you would probably not come across these monsters," said Koriu as he mentioned Darrian into the cave," Those monster i fight are or were ponies. Cyrborg-golems are a mixture of magic and metal built into ponies, usually voluntary. Dopants are similar, they take a cruder version of this," said Koriu taking out the Booster Memory," Gaia Memories or Gaia's Memories. Either way, the crude version of this is place into the skin and changed ponies into Dopants, at first it was used for good but without using a Driver Belt which i use the stuff gets addictive and makes them go crazy. Most days they are sold like drugs but unlike the cyborg-golems it is reversiable, just break the crude Gaia memory and boom they back to normal."
"Don't ask me why they do it," said Koriu," They whole have different reasons for doing such, I'm just glad i can save some of the Dopant users."

"Okay, I'm still confused, but that's never going to change is it." Darrian said, not intending to ask a question. "Now the question remains, where do you... ponies, draw your power?" Darrian paused to gather his words into a understandable and cohesive form. "I mean, you all use different names while in the field, so I'm guessing that you all have different powers. But how do you all manage it. I mean, even standard Unicorn magic can't project enough power to extensively power all of your equipment." Darrian said.
"Example. I have Darklight, recently augmented with a crystal that emits a undetectable, low level magic pulse, increasing it's performance. Yet, during the Canterlot siege, your... comrade's... what did he call it... ah! It was a 'Storm Halberd'. Yeah, it managed to match my blade's performance, or excel it." Darrian continued, an explanation to his perplexing question.
'We kinda don't really," said Koriu," I only have met two riders in my life which was the previous Accel and Kamen Rider Skull and both are Gaia Memory type Riders. There are a lot of types according to Skull from inner bing like Kuuga to the card welders like Decade and so on and so forth. So i can't tell what gives us our power."
"It is said there is a detail account on first rider's origins and how he got his power but.... no one knows where it is really."

"Well then. From what I've been able to piece together, you're just a bunch of ancient guardians with special powers who get rid of Equestria's uncommon enemies. Seems good enough for me." Darrian said, relaxing his hoof away from Darklight's hilt.
"It would be better if we just went inside, wouldn't it? All of our questions would be resolved, right? At least, that's what happens once you walk inside a treasure room and find a mural, or a book, containing the story of the life of a famous inventor, conquerer, or swordsman." Darrian said.
'Heh not all of us are good," said Koriu said as he moved into the cave," I do know there's a few bad ones out there as well but Skull wouldn't name them. I don't know what we will find in that cave maybe just some ruins maybe some sort of mural.... or maybe some sort of joke and Princess Celestia is there to prank us or something."
As Koriu entered the cave he could feel the sudden pressure of magic inside the cave. All of it is very familiar to Koriu because of the rider powers but he's sue if he didn't have his armor on it would be the weirdest feeling in the world, but just to be safe he drew the Engine Blade and inserted the Engine Memory.
