Virgil wanted to laugh. Oh how he wanted to laugh at Lasse. But the situation would not allow it. Virgil's mood changed when Ian brought up Zero... Zero was the reason he was here at all.
Before Virgil had arrived, Zero had battled with another Innovator mobile suit. He had take on the enemy alone, only to not only be defeated but sent hurling toward Earth in his wrecked machine. In his last moment Zero had ordered Virgil take the GN Drive and meet with Celestial Being.
Virgil looked to Sumeragi. He didn't know their names, but he could tell them apart enough. He raised his hand up to the height of his chest in a 'cuff me' fashion. From here he would be lead to the brig, a fancy name for a jail aboard a ship. Something stuck Virgil as he prepared to be taken away.
If Celestial Being was not completely willing to join forces, why then accept to this meeting? Could they just want their GN Drive back, or maybe they wanted more than that? Still, even after MK had helped out with defending the Ptolemy during the attack on the Asteroid base, Virgil wasn't expecting much to have changed. Especially since MK had revealed it's other Gundam units.
