The Shiba Inu has long since caught the probe as it runs out of fuel and starts to bring it back towards the ship.
Shinwa's quick moves levels out the Camel allowing it to land safely. Its a jerky landing, and two rear Repulsors drop out for seemingly no apparent reason, but its at least not going to crash. The back of the craft starts scraping across the ground as it continues towards the Warren, but the craft should be fine after a mechanic looks at it....and the paint is replaced from the scratches in the ice.
The beast Screeches behind you, and the last of the Tentacles fall beneath the ice, as the massive Iceburg is let go. The Kansen on the other hand, are far more clear.
"Your death comes, the pit will remain open, and you will never find it. Pointless action, by pointless fools."
The Ice beneath you begins to show a series of images, the Water Kansen joining in. The Seokga chasing a craft that looks very similar to the Warren, before catching it in its multi headed jaws.
"Stay here weak Samurai. Death is swift here. Become part of the ice, the snow, the cold. Better dead here then seeing the Empire die."
The Wind slowly begins to pick up speed.
"Our triumph is inevitable! Cower before the Storm!"
Shinwa drops back into his own seat, exhaling sharply. Well, if I going to do this I might as well try to do it right. It doesn't reach his face, but his heart, too, is pounding at the near escape.
He quickly sends a message to Nanashi. "Nanashi-san! Try to record those images if Kiba can." He turns. "Tetsuko-sama, The Hida will never surrender. Does that Seokga look the same as the one you fought?"
He pauses for a moment, struggling to push out the cries of surrender. The offer of a way out of the responsibility and complexity that the kansen offer. But he pushes himself through it to speak to the driver. "Kaiden-sama, You are doing well. Just keep the elevation at fifty centimeters and we will be there soon."
Those clouds don't look good. OK, Kiru-san...Shiba-san...now would be a very good time... He pushes the red button on his communication device a second time.
There is a place his story will end. He would rather it not be here.

Seeing both vehicles board through the ship's cameras, Itsuki closes the hangar ramps and lifts The Warren into the air, praying for his air kami friends to help protect his human and Nezumi ones.
Presuming there is no difficulty, Itsuki waits in the asthenosphere long enough for Kakashi to blink into apparent existence in the bridge, looking quite pleased with himself, before taking the ship out of the atmosphere entirely. His intention is to make two immediate jumps now, both to neutral imperial space, activate cloaking and take The Warren into the adjacent system, and then perform a final jump to a Shiba safe world that The Warren has often taken harbour in before, but has yet received no name from the Emerald Dragon among the Stars.

"It's a Motorcycle not a Camra." Nanashi shouts back to Shinwa.
He makes sure that both the Camel and Kiba are secured as the Warren leaves. As the incredible turbulence hits Nanashi can be found holding onto Kiba for dear life. His fingers leave small impressions in the grips of his handlebars. He only hopes no one is seeing him in the moment of utter weakness.
Shinwa mutters "Why not...everything else does every other thing at the same time...The blender sends subspace communications, I am sure." under his breath, but the words are stripped away by roaring wind and his focus is redirected to helping Doji Kaiden make it into the Warren docking bay. Despite the turbulence, as soon as it is aboard he jumps on to get at least two of the chains on so it doesn't accidentally flip if the Warren has to do a full roll during assent.
The turbulance hits hard, and Shinwa finds himself taking shelter ducked down behind a control panel for the Cargo bay and hanging on for all he is worth.
Second time in six months. At least this time I am not pumping all the air out of the cargo bay...."
