Ben Tennyson run to the command centre of the Plumber base under his grandpa Max's store, followed by his partner Rook Blonko, his best friend Kevin Levin and his cousin Gwen Tennyson. Grandpa had called Gwen and Kevin back from where Gwen was going to college for this mission. Next to Max was a female Galvan of a young age, save for her eyes.
"Glad you could all make it, it's important. Doctor Alkhemee can help inform you of the problem better then me, since she's the one to ask for our help." said Max as the female Galvan called Alkhemee spoke after him.
"The universe and this world will need your help. I am head of Galvan research in Mythology and Mana Manipulation."
"You're a Galvan wi...sorceress? Ain't the Galvan big into tech, not voodoo?" said Kevin, changing the word he was going to use for magic user with one annoyed glance from his girlfriend.
"My people are devoted to science, and my specialties are not... popular with most. However, even if most would like to avoid and ignore magic, we're also pragmatic enough to make sure it is studied and understood the best we can by those interested. This is also unimportant to the problem at hand. I have discovered someone is smuggling alien magics, spellbooks as as enchanted items and so on, with a sale of such stolen properties taking place in Undertown. It is extremely important we stop this and seize the items before they are use. Or a great many threats, to both innocent and guilty, will occur." said the Galvan Magic Expert.
"What kind of threat? Just magical explosion threat or Diagon extra-dimensional demon-god threat?" asked Ben his ears perking up.
"Either, Neither, Both or anything in between. The issue is magic is a living thing, which means it changes and evolves. Magic in the universe can come into two types, universal magic or keyed magic. Universal magic is like a molecule or element, gold or water, they don't change from world to world which means anyone can use them. Keyed magic is more like the amino acids for things like human blood typing, specific to a group or even a race of life forms. Add B type blood to an A type blood person and they die as the blood types clash. Except replace death with unpredictable effects.
To better explain is to use the example of Pyronite magic. It has many spells for thermal changes, increases or decreasing heat. Ice or Fire spells to be exact. Some of those spells can be used by any races, like humans. Other required the unique aspects of the Pyronite's natural heat and/or flame. Other lifeforms with similar heat and energy could potentially use those spells. If a human used them, however, they could suffer anything from minor burns or frostbite... to being frozen solid to the cellular level or bursting into a flame as hot as a sun.
Which means if the person uses a spell or item with keyed magic, it could mean disaster." said Alkhemee as she revealed the threat, which made them all take things seriously.
"So we have to stop this before things blow up. So do you have any more information about the sale other then it's in Undertown? Like what items are for sale? Who's selling them? Who's buying them? When and where in Undertown is it going down?" asked Kevin, his mind using his own criminal experiences to seek out more important details.
