Bonds of Friendship

Arriving in Spiral Hill Village, the Babylon Rogues quickly assaulted the Mineral Museum, where they swiftly stole the many valuable minerals put on display before making a hasty retreat back to their blimp. Up there, as the Babylon Rogues went over their haul, however, they discovered that Storm had accidentally kidnapped the museum's curator, Jewel the Beetle. Soon after, Tangle and Whisper showed up to rescue Jewel. As Jet and Wave began arguing over how to deal with this situation, Tangle secretly stole their loot back. Soon though, Jet grew tired of arguing and told Storm to throw everyone out. When Storm complied by throwing Jewel out of the blimp however, Jet scolded Storm for making them look violent. As Wave then began complaining about having to save Jewel now, Tangle stopped the Babylon Rogues, as she and Whisper had it under control. After the Babylon Rogues then received a threat from Tangle about not coming to her village again, Tangle leapt out of the blimp with the stolen goods, angering Jet. Wave, however, told him to let them go as today was a hassle.[2]
