The Pegasus looked at the scaled fish looking pony he lowers his ears "Jason...Jason Cain, Office of Strategic Service..The metal one said I'm in Roan... Where is that?" He looks at Rufus and the Tercel "What is everyone here?" He tries to angle his gun to point at them knowing full well he can't operate it. "I'm armed," he bluffs "Stay back or I'll shoot." He freezes seeing the pony (?) with the flask "Put it down and slide it to me..." he watches the flask hoping that he could drink and wake up from this nightmare

Listening to Jason talk, Aqua thought to herself (he doesn't know about Roan or the species of those around him, what could have coursed that? Head trauma, no he would be in pain and would likely have a wound or bump on his head, to much stress and lack of sleep? Possible, I'll have to ask questions and see how he answers and reacts, magic? The mage would have to be very powerful to alter/erase memories, but not imposable, I'll have to get him to hospital to test that) sitting herself down and remaining calm under the hostilities that Jason showed, Aqua raised her forehoofs to the side of her head and spoke to Jason.
"Please try to stay calm Jason, I really am here to help you, but I'll need your help to do so, tell me what do you remember before you were in this alleyway?"
As she was speaking a black unicorn trotted past her straight up to Jason and offered him a drink, at this Aqua was outraged and was about to yell at the unknown pony who was clearly intoxicated, before remembering the way of the six paths, taking a moment to calm herself Aqua simplify said to the drunk pony "please sir, don't give him anything to drink, it will only lead to disharmony"
Sweet Tooth grimaced again and stood beside Aqua, shifting from side to side on her hooves. She hated being useless, and nothing she did seemed to draw a response from the pegasus---It seemed 'Jason' was his name. The Kelpie seemed to know what to do. Clearing her throat, Sweet turned to the purple pony and bit her lip.
Sapphire ducked behind Sweet when he'd started waving the gun around. She might have been largely metal, but she'd already almost died once and preferred not to go through that again. As Aqua spoke to him, she chanced a glance out from behind her living shield, looking the strange pony over again. Did he have amnesia or something? How could he not know what these species were. It's not like they just popped up overnight or something. Swallowing thickly, she poked her head out a little further so that he could see her clearly. "Could you please stop waving the gun around? You're going to accidentally shoot someone, and I'd like to avoid that. Especially for myself." She said calmly, just watching him.
Max gives a somewhat lopsided smile and stops a bit of a distance away. He considers the flask for a second before shrugging and giving it a small toss with his horn magic towards the pony in need. However, his accuracy may not have been up to his usual standards. Things were still wavering just slightly too much to be absolutely sure the flask was going to its intended target.
Rufus had made his decision. The pony before him had crossed the boundary into hysteria and it was only a matter of time before he hurt himself or someone else. He waited a beat, until the unicorn had tossed the flask. In one easy movement, he grabbed this Jason and picked him up. The massive canine ripped the gun from his hold and replaced it with the flask he grabbed from the ground.
"Now listen here Sir. I know this is very confusing right now, but I will not have you threatening my little ponies with a gun. So, you are going to hold this flask and be still while I escort you and whomever wishes to follow to the nearest clinic, where you will be a good boy and let them check you out. On your way there, you will think quite deeply about the best way you can explain what happened to you to me and whomever else followed us there. Do you understand me?"
Kroll watched from around the corner as the massive Canidian grabbed the stallion and began to reprimand him on his negligent firearms handling. It seemed like they planned to take him to one of the nearby medical facilities in order to get him some help. Thinking over which clinic was the closest, the tercel slipped out of his hiding spot and hurried on his way, already thinking about the next step to take from there.
Jason feels himself being picked up letting the rifle clatter to the ground, when he was handed the flask it dropped as if he's never used his hooves to hold anything before. "Please don't eat me." he begs to the dog "I don't want to be eaten like this." he curls up into a ball whimpering pathetically terrified at his situation.
Sweet Tooth let out a squeal of fright as the dog grabbed Jason and picked him up, shaking him. Though his voice was calm, the plump mare couldn't help but feel afraid for the Pegasus. He looked genuinely terrified.
"Put him down!" She cried, stomping her hoof, "You're scarin' him!" She took a deep breath, "Look, just...I gotta bed in my truck, maybe he just needs to lay down."
Sapphire jumped slightly at the large dog's sudden movements, but his logic was sound. If he kept up this panic, he was liable to hurt somepony else if not himself for sure. She moved forward and put a hoof on Sweet's shoulder, using her wing to pick up Jason's rifle and tucked it under her wing for safe keeping until he was a little more stable. "Hey, he's got a point. Panicking ponies only get others hurt. Now, could we use your truck to take him to the clinic? He's clearly in need of some help and you're more than welcome to stay with us once we get there." She said, trying to calm the obese mare down, then looked up at the large dog. "Do you think you could keep him calm long enough for us to get there? I could ride with you if you'd like." She offered.
Rufus picked up the flask and returned it to the whimpering equine. "I will try my best to keep him calm. I will probably be best if everyone here went to the clinic," he explained. "The nurses will need to know what happened here. I too would like to know everyone's thoughts on the matter." The large canine began to stroke Jason's head gently, "There is no need to worry, I won't hurt you."
Kroll looked at himself at the bathroom mirror at the clinic. Now wearing a doctor's outfit and a surgical mask over his face, the tercel almost made for a rather convincing doctor, though his prosthetic leg and burned face might raise some eyebrows. Nonetheless, it was by sheer luck that there was a griffon on staff at the clinic, otherwise it would've been difficult to try and retrofit a uniform that was made for a mare or stallion as his sowing skills were fairly limited. It was a good thing that it was a busy day at the medical center too, otherwise one of the other staff would've noticed that the tawny, Roan-born hen who helped with lab work had been replaced by a gray tercel almost a head taller than her. With the hard work done and out of the way, all Kroll had to do was wait until the ragtag group arrived with their mystery patient.
Jason has no choice as he's carried to the clinic all the while he's hugging the flask as tight as he can, trying to think of exactly how he got to this place. "Aliens, no would have taken the entire platoon. The Nazi's? maybe, I guess...." and so on murmuring the whole way there.

Aqua who had been obscuring and making mental notes on what she saw, had so far noticed that Jason had not once tried to stand or sit up while she was there, she also noticed that he wasn't holding the gun, he only made it look like he was because as soon as he was lifted it fell straight away without any kind of clinging, this was reinforced when the canine handed him the flask the first time, she watched as it clattered to the floor as if dropped, when the canine handed it to him a second time she saw that he wasn't holding it, he was just pressing it against himself with his forehoof, he hasn't even tried to open it yet.
Things where getting curiouser and curiouser, she will need to speak to the doctor who sees Jason, and inform him off everything Jason has said and what she has observed so far.
Aqua suggested to the giant canine to take him to the local hospital that she volunteered at, it wasn't very far away and the staff there were excellent, leading the way Aqua hopes that this is not a case of magical memory manipulation, treatment for that could only be done by Umbra Mages, these being quite rare and well sought after made them very expensive to hire, and even with there help it was no guarantee that you would get your memorys back, and judging by the way Jason is now the poor pony will have to relearn everything.
Sapphire gave a nod to the dog's request for going along, moving up and standing beside Aqua, who seemed to be the only medically inclined one here. She made sure Jason's rifle was secure, before speaking to the kelpie. "So do you think this is real or is he just pretending? Not that I'm trying to put him in a bad light, but can you really forget everything like that?" she asked curiously,
