Sweet Tooth backed away nervously, biting her lip and looking very worried at the strange pegasus. She looked over to see a mostly...metal pony, and deciding not to risk upsetting it she followed its advice to back away. But she kept looking at the upset pegasus and cleared her throat.
"Hey...uh...I-I'm Sweet Tooth," She murmured in her high-pitched voice, "A-and, uh, well...It's gonna be okay."
Sapphire let out a sigh at Sweet's less than helpful reassurance, taking a step or two back and motioning with one of her artificial wings for Sweet to do the same before she turned back to Jason, laying down on the ground and trying to look as non threatening as possible. "Hey, just calm down, alright? Panicking isn't going to help any." She said in a soft voice. "You're a pony, a pegasus to be exact. So am I, but I've had.... surgeries." She said, her eyes lowering a little as she bit her lip. After a few seconds she looked back up at him again, the little cameras that composed her eyes refocusing on him once more with a soft whirr. "We're not going to hurt you. We just want to help. You said you didn't know what you were, did you hit your head or something?" She asked him, folding one foreleg across the other and keeping her voice calm.
The Pegasus looks at the robot pony "Stay back." he shouts to her as he still tries to pick up his rifle "Where are my hands?" he looks at his hooves he tries his best not to break out into another crying fit, managing to drag the rifle to him curling up holding it like a security blanket almost trying not to cry now

Aqua exited the local hospital, she liked to volunteer her time when she was on leave and the hospital was grateful for the combat medics help.
Trotting up the street Aqua started her journey home, not long later she spots a strange looking vehicle just stopped in the middle of the road, she continued onwards up the road but when she was halfway up to the strange truck thing she heard screaming coming from the alleyway next to the vehicle.
From what she could see in front of her Aqua thought that something nefarious was ahoof and started to gallop towards the alleyway, her thoughts were reaffirmed with shouts of stay back.
Aqua ran round the corner and shouted "what's going on here" before running into the large backside of an overweight orange mare.
Sweet Tooth let out a squeal as she felt something smack into her rear end. The roadie mare quickly shuffled around and looked at the offender. She blinked and squinted in the low light of the alleyway at a purple kelpie who looked just as surprised as she was.
The rotund mare sheepishly cleared her throat and looked from her to the pegasus. "Uh...This guy is...freakin' out. We're tryin' to help him." She looked at the pegasus and tried to smile, "J-Just calm down...Do ya want somethin' eat? I can getcha cookies."
When the pegasus asked where his hands were, Sapphire began to look around the alley way for a set of H.A.N.D.s devices. Not seeing them laying around anywhere nearby, she turned back to him, just as Sweet spoke up again. She mentally facehoofed as the massive mare began to offer the panic stallion food. It was no wonder why the mare was so massive if food was the first thing she'd thought to offer. Letting out a light sigh, she gave a nod of agreement to the mare's statement. "She's right, no one is going to hurt you or try and take anything from you." She said, keeping her voice calm and trying to exude that calmness to him. "I don't see your hands anywhere, are you sure you didn't leave them somewhere else?" She asked, then had a revelation. "Were you mugged?" She suddenly asked, thinking someone attacked him for the device.
Observing the situation, Rufus almost stepped in. The panicked nature of the pony in question, however, only served to reassure him that his presence would only cause an increase of stress. He couldn't sit back and do nothing though.
"Sir," he called out in an authoritative voice, "we need you to calm down. A medical professional is on his way and will assist you in any way he can, but until then take a deep breath and try to calm down."
Kroll paused as the screaming started up again. Judging by what he was able to glean by eavesdropping,it sounded like the others were trying to calm the panicking individual, albeit rather unsuccessfully.
He was surprised that nobody else had been drawn to the commotion given how sociable the citizens of Roan seemed to be, but maybe they were less inclined to indulge their inner Samaritan when there was a fair chance of legitimate peril. This worked out perfectly for the tercel however, as it reduced the chances of him being noticed tremendously. He figured that he'd stick around for just a little longer, at least until the one screaming calmed down enough to explain their situation. It could've just been a bum out of their gourd, but the possibility of it being something more worthwhile kept the griffon in place.
The pegasus begins to settle "Roan? Where is that from Fort Benning? I wasn't Mugged, I was taken. I'm not what I should be. I should be a human. Not a pony, Pegasus." He begins to look at the crowd "Please stay back from me."

Aqua was slightly dazed from her collision, she quickly shook it off and observed and listened to what was going on around her, ahead of her there was an aethertech Pegasus, no wait the head and tail were flesh, so not aethertech just a mare who has had a lot of surgeries. Near her was a Distressed Pegasus stallion, and at the other side of the alley a large Canidian was looking round the corner.
The first thing Aqua did was say "No don't give him anything sweet it won't calm him, it will just heighten his anxiety" to the overweight mare as she slowly walked past her, she stopped a fair distance form the stallion, and spoke in the calm professional tone she used when on duty "hello sir, my name is Soothing Aqua, I'm a Medic and I'm here to help you, can you tell me who you are and how I can assist you"?
Sweet Tooth 's ears fell back as she looked at Aqua "A-are ya sure? I mean..." She heard the pegasus talking about being something called a 'human' and gave him a look, "Well, uh, okay, no sugar." Sweet Tooth stood up and stood beside Aqua, "I-I'm Sweet Tooth, and this is, uh...some guy." She bit her lip and looked down, "Look, uh, I'm not a medical pony...what should we do?"
Sapphire stood up as Aqua approached, glad that there was finally a competent medical pony here. "I think he's in shock. He keeps rambling on about stuff that doesn't make any sense. I'll keep the others back so you two can have space." She told the kelpie before moving over to Sweet and urging the large mare to back up more. "We should let her work. You don't have to leave, but at least give them some more space so he doesn't feel crowed and panic anymore. I don't like not being able to help any more than you do, but there's nothing we can really do now." She explained, looking back with a sigh.
Max had just been listening for a little while to what everypony else had been saying as he tried to make the world stop spinning quite as bad. He didn't quite comprehend most of what was going right now on besides that the pegasus on the ground was clearly in need of a drink after whatever shock affected him. He pulled his flask out and trotted towards him, managing quite by accident to slip past Sapphire as she's distracted with Sweet and offers the flask to the pegasus "Here this'll help take the edge off things."
Kroll furrowed his brow as he tried to make sense of what the pegasus was going on about now that it had calmed down. He had mentioned something about a 'Fort', but as far as the tercel knew, there wasn't any military installations in Roan called 'Benning'. It could've been code for someplace else, though it was oddly specific and somewhat offical-sounding.
Hoping to gain some information if value the griffon remained in his hiding spot, interested in what else the distressed stallion had to say.
