Novocaine was sick of the stagnant spell of inactivity the Cartel was in. Pippa had promised she would help them get back onto their feet and he had reluctantly trusted her to it. It seemed like he was a fool for doing so and, thus, Cain felt it was his job to nip that shit in the bud. Their numbers were dwindling and there was not much to be done in the Cartel at all. They needed a change and Novocaine was willing to provide it unlike Pippa, who had seemed to have gone missing for more than a few days now and had nothing to contribute to the crew apart from just bossing them around.
"Pippa!" The massive hellhound calls through the mansion as his massive form steps into its interior, his tail lashing in broad strokes behind his lithe frame, "I know you're lazing about in here somewhere. You've done nothing to help us like you said you would when you took over. I knew I wasn't right to trust you, so I'm taking taking over." You and your father are just alike. He hisses from within his mind, his veins close to boiling with anger. "I asked you to prove yourself and what do you do? You change us around, you make some minor adjustments, and then you disappear. It seems like I was right about you." The challenge is clear upon his tongue, uttered in a slight growl that rumbled like an encroaching storm in his chest. Ice blue eyes flicker about the area, an frosty exhale leaving parted jaws as he waits. He knows his challenge would draw out Pippa - he just couldn't wait for her to spew out excuses.
Pippa Cipher , ic opinions of course!
Novocaine's just being an ass and this doesn't necessarily have to warrant a takeover, he just wants Pippa to prove herself to him and the Cartel <3
