(So, I might have gone a little bit (massively a lot) overboard with this first post, but I needed to make it epic enough though, needed to put some groundwork for people to build off of)

"Oh you have got to be kidding me" Engineer Jacob Murrue mentioned as he hung from a pipe, in a partially destroyed section of a building, above acid with pink fleshy monsters known as Mutants were coming towards him from all sides growling. He manged to get his weapon out, but unless he came up with a solution quick, he was screwed.

"Alright, wait a second. Hold on. Sorry for interrupting the story like this, but we started out on the wrong foot. Hi, my name is Jacob Murrue. I am an Engineer, trying to keep the city from falling apart. And we should not start the story here, but fifteen minutes earlier..."

ARCNet Main Datastorage Building, Tefani Plaza:

The guards were letting people in as normal. Everything was running fine, and the people were all going about their normal business. A mailman came through with some packages, and behind him, a special agent came through with some important tech. It was supposed to be the new advanced Processing Unit, that would enhance ARCNet's systems so that it would be able to tell them who was with the Revolution, Interwhere, and Shadows with a 98% chance of success per target. He quickly got into the elevator, and headed towards where he needed to insert the device.

"Hey, you hear? A member of the High Council is coming to visit. Wants to see the new system at work, and apparently they hired some mercs to help defend it during the next few days as well. I wonder which Councilor it is" one of the guards for the next shift said as him and three other guards walked into the building with some new expresso coffee they created across the street at the new Starlight Cafe. They got onto the elevator, and proceeded to head to their posts.

And then, just about twenty seconds later, it happened. The ARCNet building came online, and then seven seconds after that, a series of explosions rattled the area and devastated the building. Four explosions in total. One in the main reactor, two along the powerlines and datafeeds, and one in the data storage area. ARCNet just took a hit.

"And now, this is where I come in. That's me, sitting at the table at the Cafe across the Plaza. And lucky me, I was on call for Rapid Response Duty. Basically, that means that if there is a technical emergency, like a building blowing up and needing repairs, I would be called in to help do initial fixings and structure stabilization, as well as making sure to eliminate the risk of additional damage. Of course, this can sometimes be hampered by people's prejudice towards Drevs and Half Drevs. Anyways, ima stop interjecting with comments here".

Jacob quickly started getting his gear together, and began running towards the building. He scanned the ID code on his left arm at the door, his Hazard level clearance giving him access. He approached the front desk. "Engineer Murrue here. What is the situation".

"ARCNet data drives are down, and our power core just went boom in the basement. Or its highly damaged" the guard told him as he looked up. "Hold on, aren't you a little young?"

"I am fourteen, which makes me a legal adult. I just had inherit slow aging from my mother so I look nine or ten, but I inherited my Psion father's, whoever he might be, intelligence. Now, I assume you are having security sweep the area. Have you encountered any mutants or tunnel breaches?"

If the explosion breached into the tunnels below, mutants could be crawling into the building as they spoke, and they would make his job more difficult.

"None yet, but we do have an issue. This building has two backup fusion engines to power it, but the fusion lines on both are damaged or something. If you don't get those patched, everyone trapped on the upper levels is dead" the guard told him, as Jacob took out his tools. He began setting up the Tri-pod that would connect to his harness. He had his Grav-Shoes on, but the simple fact is the plasma residue on the walls would likely make it impossible to work. Additionally, the exhaust a hoverboard gives off to prevent overheating would likely trigger the fusion gas filling up in that room, causing another explosion. So, harness was the only way to go in.

As Jacob went lower, he saw the full extent of the damage. Data drives in pieces, Plasma residue everywhere. Just being in the room was toxic, but thanks to Jacob's Dreven DNA he was able to withstand it...so long as he did not touch the walls. The catwalk below him was already clear of Plasma Residue. "Hey, what happened to the clean up drones?"

"There is too much residue for them to get all of it, but they managed to clear away some areas. You should have a clean path to the fusion lines".

That was when Jacob heard growling below. "Guys, we need a containment team down here stat. I think I just heard Mutants".

Jacob looked around. He did not see anything, but he could smell them. They were barely making any noise either. He reached into his toolkit, and took out a standard Engineering issue Plasma Pistol G-X9 series, known for destabilizing mutants genetic structure on contact. He then made a run for the fusion line, getting to it as a Mutant jumped up from below and charged towards him. Luckily, his support drone known as Blue showed up and zapped the thing back off the catwalk. Blue was run by a Level 4 AI. AIs had ten levels. The higher level an AI, the more powerful it and its processing power is. However, it also is less human, has less emotions. Lower level AIs are more like people, but are not as powerful or efficient.

Jacob managed to seal the Fusion Lines using some sealing gel and spreading it among the breach. The fusion lines reconnected to the engines, causing the lights to turn on. This revealed dozens of mutants crawling up the walls out of a breach. "Blue, we need to get out of here now!" Jacob tugged on the harness so that they knew to pull him up. They started to, but before he made it out of the hole in the ceiling/floor, a mutant lept across and severed the nano-rope with its claws. Jacob just barely managed to grab a pipe before he fell.

And now, he was back in this position. He fired at any Mutant that got close, but even he knew this level of a mutant breach was too much for how much energy was left in his weapon. Before the mutants got any closer though, a rope was dropped down. He quickly attached it to his harness, and tugged on it again.

Now that he was back up, he sighed with relief. "Make sure security and the engineering team that will be headed here is ready to deal with a level 4 Mutant incursion".

With that, he then noticed there was some plasma gunk on his shoes. He took them off, and put them into a containment bag so he could safely transport them home later. His feet had some bandages on them, from his new hobby of learning a variety of martial arts. He made a mental note to change them later, and he got out his spare pair of shoes.

That was when he spotted someone entering. He didn't know the guy, but Jacob was good at spotting people who were hiding things. And this guy, he had something to hide. BUt what he was more curious about was who did this, why did they do it, and how did they do it.

Storm Tidus



A single armored bus pulled into the parking lot of the ARCNet building, the black plas-steel complimenting it's amber colored insignia in a cross shape. Inside the transport sat several mercenaries preparing to enter the building. They were loading up their gear and checking their weapons, but all of them were anxious about the mission. One in particular, a young mutt sitting in the corner, was seemingly depressed about what lied ahead. His anxiety had gotten to him, as it was his first mission and such an important one. He was comforted however as his mentor sat beside him and put a hand on his shoulder. The orange colored holo-visor obscured the man's face but it was simple enough to get at his meaning. Storm Tidus accepted his mentor's comfort and checked his sword before sheathing it on his back, and immediately the order to move out was issued.

Two teams of four mercenaries exited the mobile transport, each securing the perimeter before Storm's mentor Kevin lead their team inside to talk to a representative waiting for them. Storm stayed close behind Kevin and inspected the location to get as much of an idea of the damage as possible. Kevin spoke with the rep and found out that some levels of the damaged power rooms needed clearing of mutants. Their team headed down to the mutant infested areas and scouted the area, setting Storm at an uneasy pace. While Kevin and Storm had Drev blood they were unaffected by the noxious fumes, but the other half of their team had to keep their protective helmets in place.

Commissioner Cain




"Command, Verify why R-177 are the first ones on scene outside private security and freelance forces? As I recall, the Precinct house is across from the ARCnet building for a reason? I know damn well they have the equipment to get over there sooner, I did the inspections last week!"

A group of four PDF Prowler's, with markings from the Precinct R-177 across the doors on each side on otherwise matte black vehicles, moved with an incredible sense of urgency as their sirens wailed to clear the way ahead of the pack of Prowler's. In each Prowler were four PDF officers, the lead vehicle being driven by the Commissioner of Precinct R-177, and well into his older years Dreven, Alexander Cain. Due to the sensitive nature and priority of the response he had taken personal leadership of this mission. The lead Prowler was leading the other three in a diamond formation, and while they flew Commissioner Cain was arguing with superiors and the head of the Precinct as to why it was up to the R-177 PDF to be on site first, when they were anything but the closest first response force available from PDF. The other R-177 officers were loading up long arms, a mixture of shotguns and compact automatic rifles. Due to the confirmed Mutant presence increased firepower was authorized for the responding PDF officers, and they were coming ready for a fight.

The sirens would alert the on scene personnel of the arriving PDF Prowlers. What was likely unexpected was the four matte black R-177 Prowlers touching down as they came from around a corner, hatches on the Prowler's already sliding up to allow the sixteen man reaction force from Precinct R-177 to get boots on the ground fast. The freelancers and private security would know the Precinct by reputation, if nothing else, as the Prowlers were parked and the men formed off into four man squads. While armor and weapons varied between members (And only the Commissioner carrying personal weapons outside his sidearm), each and every one of them wore a long black all weather coat, which was what gave them the nickname the Precinct had. The Blackcoats, no nonsense and did not deal in shady, border legality operations. They were lawmen, first and foremost, and the Commissioner and his three closest men would head for the recovering first responders from the building itself, while the other Blackcoats fanned out to secure the perimeter, reinforcing the work that the mercs had done already. Commissioner Cain approached a lad who had bagged his shoes, plasma exposure it looked like, pegging him from the short brief he got from his higher ups as an on duty Rapid Response. Best get first hand information on what had happened so far, rather than rely on shoddy reports, and with his personal shotgun hanging across his vest, he wasted no time while his three men fanned out to work with other first responders, already knowing what their job was.

"Engineer Murrue? Commissioner Cain, Precint R-177. Heard you boys got yourself a nasty mutant infestation down here after initial detonations, what other problems we looking at beyond those, lad?"

Candice Jackson was comfortably seated in a black SUV headed towards the ARCNet Main Datastorage Building when her bodyguard had received a phone call.

“Yes, sir. Goodbye.” He finished the phone call and turned to Candice. “Seems there’s been a disturbance at the destination. I suggest we postpone your visit.”

Candice rolled her eyes. “Define disturbance.”

“A number of explosions, m’am.” He explained.

Candice thought to herself for a moment. “Potential for further danger?”

“A level 3 alert has been issued.”

“Oh please, level 3? We continue. Hardly any danger, and it could be a good publicity opportunity.” She sat back in her seat and enjoyed the remainder of the ride.



Candice arrived at the Datastorage Building and stepped out of her vehicle. Her bodyguards cleared a path for her to reach the building. She paused to pose for her photography drone as she ducked under the police tape that warned the public to go no further.

She considered approaching someone to get some information, but decided that photo opportunities took priority and scouted the area for the best images. Although, she did keep an eye out for certain people. She was particularly interested if that Dreven, Commissioner Cain was here.

As everyone showed up, someone walked up over to him, introducing himself as Commissioner Cain. He mainly asked about the situation.

"Well, actually it was just me. I am currently the only responding Engineer to this situation, unless you want to count my friend blue" Jacob told him, pointing out the hovering drone nearby. He then brought up a holographic display of the ARCNet facility. "Its a level four breach. Ravager class mutants from what I saw. I killed a number of them before getting out of there myself. From what I saw though, it could have been any number of things. A destabilized Plasma Charge placed on the reactor itself, which caused destabilized plasma to also get into the flow pipes and cause the secondary explosions in the three other rooms. Someone overloading the Plasma in the reactor with a contaminant that caused their own plasma to destabilize, though this would require intimate access to the reactor controls. Another possibility is precision det charges were somehow sneaked in, and that all four explosions were set off by seperate devices in a blind attempt to try and damage what they could, which would mean the bomber probably never even entered the building, but had it hidden on four other people. Additionally, it could have also been a reverse chain reaction. Normally, a chain reaction would work from the reactor down through the pipes, but a powerful enough explosive that was plasma based could have been planted in whatever other room got mainly hit, and the plasma's mixed in a way that caused a rapid reaction that went fast enough to ignore flow speed and reach the reactor as well as two other spots, build up there, and then explode within seconds of the primary explosive".

He then put his bagged shoes away, and was still barefoot as he had not put on his new shoes yet. He brought out a sample kit, and took some of the plasma gunk that had dripped onto the floor before securing the sample and putting it away. "Anyways, mutants are not even the worse problem. THe plasma residue down there is strong enough to be toxic. Its contained to the lower levels right now, but eventually it will turn gasous and then we will be in trouble".

It was probably worth noting that Jacob held no fear when talking to Cain, and stood tall (figuritvely, he is a fourteen year old Dreven/Psion Mutt and he inherited the slow aging from his mother's Dreven DNA so in fact he appears to be nine or ten) and proud. After all, most Rapid Response Engineers work in teams, but Jacob Murrue (Which for the record, the Mur as in Murky and the Rue as in Roo) had arrived and immediately started working by himself, managed to stabilize the fusion lines while under mutant attack, and successfully got out of there alive. Not many Engineers could do that. The number was in the single digits.

"We should really be focusing on containment of the plasma down there. That should be a prior....." Jacob started, when the alarms went off.

"Alert. Power has returned to the security functions. Alert, a Cyber Breach has been detected. All ARCNet data was downloaded offsite. Backup files are damaged, system corrupted. Restoring remaining ARCNet data to the database now" the AI told them. A split second later, and Jacob felt a very minor vibration through his bare feet. He immediately took out his weapon, pointed it in Candice Jackson's direction, and shot the mutant that sprang from the vents and right at her, killing it with a headshot.

He immediately looked towards the security officer at the desk. "What the fuck was that? I told you this was a level four breach! All vents should be locked down and monitored!"

Jacob then turned towards Commissioner Cain. "Anyways, if we don't deal with the Plasma Issue, and the gas builds up, even if the toxicity does not reach us, it could cause more explosions if it meets an ignition source. So that needs to be a priority. Speaking of priorities, I should take a damn shower. While the gunk only got on my shoes, I am sure every bit of clothing I am wearing is covered in plasma residue just by being down there. So, lets finish this up. What else do you need to know?"

Meanwhile, in the background, someone passed by all the security and started heading upstairs.

Storm Tidus



Heading further into the explosion zone, Storm and his team kept searching the area but was unable to spot any mutants right away. After ten minutes they decided to break out scanners that scanned for heartbeats, and finally detected where their targets were. The problem was it showed them all right in front of the team, and they saw no one in that direction. It was too little too late when they finally spotted them, the first dropping down on top of Storm and pinning him down. Kevin and his other team mates shot the mutant off Storm so he could get up and draw his sword. There were suddenly beset by a whole dozen or so of them, the mutants far outnumbering the mercenaries. Kevin yelled for them all to run for the exit as he pulled out a plasma grenade, and Storm wasted no time in retreating.

As he neared the entrance he turned just in time to see Kevin swarmed in mutants as he pulled the pin on the grenade. As it went off the fumes in the room ignited and blasted Storm out of the door just as it closed to contain the blast automatically. Storm hit the ground hard in the main lobby but immediately stood and ran to the door, dropping his blade in the process, and starts pounding on it. "Dammit Kevin!" He sinks to the floor and sits there on his knees, out of breath and shaking from the thought of loosing his mentor. He had to call in backup from the other team, so he fumbles with his comm link and tells them about what happened. The second Amber-Cross team arrives momentarily and keeps the door secure while Storm is comforted by one of the mercenaries, the young mutt almost in tears over his encounter.

Candice Jackson flinched as a young boy shot a gun in her direction. She turned to look where the bullet had landed.

A dead mutant lay on the ground with a bleeding bullet wound. They underestimated the danger level here. She thought to herself. She made a mental note to find out who assessed the danger level of the alert. This sort of incompetence was unacceptable.

She also made a note to discipline her bodyguard for his own incompetence. She glanced at him, noticing the nervous twitch in his stance.

She smoothed her hair with her fingertips and turned back towards the young boy. As she approached him, she noticed that he was speaking with Commissioner Cain.

"Commissioner Cain, your forces seem to be having trouble securing the area. The alert issued did not indicate this level of danger." She said briskly before turning to the boy. "Thank you, young man. You're quite the shot!"
