100% Human

0 · 308 views · located in Dystopian cyberpunk future

a character in “Synth Crisis”, as played by wheezymcgee

Description

Name: Slade Gunnerson

Role: Police Officer Specializing in Cyborg Removal
Age: 34

Gender: M

Physical Description:
Image
Slade is very athletic and in shape. He moves quickly and is quite nimble. He has scars all over his body from previous encounters with cyborgs but he's so far been lucky enough to stay cybernetic free. He is pretty good at taking a beating. He has a tattoo of the shape of Iowa on his right shoulder.

Gear: Slade is how do you say, Lightly armored to the teeth. He has the standard issue police assault uniform. He took the sleeves off because honestly what does cloth do except burn? He wears the basic armor vest, gloves, shoulder and knee pads, and boots. He wears a set of goggles that can track and tell him who is a cyborg and what percentage they are at. He keeps a diamond bladed katana on his back. THe standard issue police pistol on his hip and a futuristic sawn off shotgun with pulse round ammo and different firing modes on his back as well. It can switch between slugs and spread fire. He drives what would be considered a police hover truck that he keeps a bunch of ammo and other assorted weapons in. The biggest weapon he has in the truck would be a gatling lazer gun that he only uses when it is needed.

Cybernetics: None He's 100% Human

Personality: Slade is a very interesting person in the fact that he loves to uphold the law and he loves his job. He can get irritated when people do stupid things but so far nothing too stupid has happened to him. He has to not let death affect him very much because of his line of work. He has worked with many different officers and partners and most of them have died.

Bio: Slade was a police officer before the crisis and has since become kind of a veteran, mostly because he is still alive. He was born and raised in Iowa to an abusive drunk of a father. As soon as he turned 18 he left and got as far away from there as he could. He wound up in Canada and Joined their police force. About a year or two later he found ou7t his father was in a drunk driving accident and got cybernetics to stay alive. Eventually he went mad and killed Slade's mother and then himself. After hearing this news Slade joined the The Anti Cybernetic division of the Police Force. He has been there for 14 years.

So begins...

Slade sat on the roof of an adjacent building to the warehouse. The sound of the police cars below were the perfect distraction for him to make an entrance and take the rogue cyborgs by surprise. The only sound from him that could be heard was the focusing of his goggles as he looked at the building. The goggles located 10 cyborgs in the warehouse. He could also see that all of the cyborgs were above 30% in the amount of enhancements they each had. Which meant he had to do the job that he did so well...... "Gunnerson are you ready to move in?" said a voice coming from his mic. "Yessir he said calmly standing up just as it began to rain. He finished putting all of his gear on and fired a zipline across the street to the warehouse. He slid his way onto the cable and onto the next building.
As he landed, the door to the roof burst open and a large armor plated cyborg with a flamethrower for an arm came out. Slade quickly dashed over to a nearby ventilation exaust port. "YOU DIDN"T THINK I WOULDN"T HEAR YOU DID YOU?" the crazed cyborg yelled. "THESE BABIES CAN HEAR ANYTHING!" The borg motioned to it's ears. If Slade was lucky the sound of the rain would help drown out the sounds he made. The cyborg began firing out streams of liquid fire in every which direction, it was apparent that it didn't know where he was. The gas canister could be seen on its back. That was Slade's target. He threw his pistol into the air and over the cyborg. It landed with a loud clank and caused the fire weilding cyborg to turn around. This was his chance, Slade jumped out and fired his shotgun at the gas tank causing it to explode and engulf the cyborg in fire.
Thecyborg shreiked in pain as he slowly burned. Slade ran up to him and lashed his katana out, lobbing a burning fleshy head from the cyborg. The burning head rolled and fell of the the edge of the roof and onto the street below in front of the cop cars. Slade picked up his pistol and made his way down the stairs into the warehouse. "9 more to go......" He said to himself.

The room smelt like rubber and disinfectant she shifted on the exam table a light crumbling noise filling the quiet room. She sighed brushing a piece of hair behind her ears. She would never come to these check ups if it wasn't for the small fact that it was either living with the check ups or being on desk duty permanently. Anna heard a light vibration come from her jacket on the chair across from her and as she was about to get it the door flew open. Only ten minutes, a new record.
“You’re good to go. No problems anywhere. If you have no questions you're free to go."
She hoped off the table putting her uniform on as well as her jacket and checked her phone, a group of rogue cyborgs were occupying a warehouse fairly close to the hospital.


She kicked it into high gear and managed to get to the scene within minutes. She threw the jacket over her bike and walked over to the control van. “What do we got?”
“Ten cyborgs, Gunnerson’s already moving in.”
“Where from?”
The man pointed back halfheartedly “Ro-.” Not being able to finish his own sentence thanks to an explosion that rang out from the roof of the warehouse. He didn’t have to finish talking to know he was going to say Slade was going in from the roof. That was classic Slade.

Without another word she grabbed an earpiece and headed towards the back of the building. The back of the building was the loading docks for the trucks and a definite way of getting into the building. For some reason they didn’t think to put anyone out here, it was a major entry point and to not put anyone to guard it was just stupid. Then again when the explosion went off it probably drew their attention. “Slade it's Anna,” she said as she started her way up the stairs “You’re about to get some company. That explosion drew quite a bit of attention.”

Stent made the route in record time. As he pulled up to the lot, he could see an explosion on the roof as a cyborg was lit up like a roman candle. He stepped out of the vehicle and sighed. Gunnerson. There was a noticeable hole in the front of the warehouse where the original detonation must have occurred. Colton hurriedly walked up to a sergeant on the line and asked for a quick debrief.

"Sergeant," Colton began. "Are there any updates? Has anyone been deployed yet?"

"Oh yessir, Gunnerson reported ten cyborgs, right before taking out one! Then officer Gulbrandsen showed up on the scene and went to go cover the back because we're busting our balls, stretched thin as it is watching the front."

Colton nodded, "alright, I'll catch up with Officer Gulbrandsen then."

With extreme haste, Colton Stent rushed around to catch up with Anna. He reached up to his ear piece to contact her. "Anna? This is Agent Stent. I'm coming to back you up. Don't do anything hasty until I get there."

Stent reviewed the situation in his mind, trying to figure out what may be going on.
This is definitely a coordinated attack. One gave his life to open this warehouse, which means they knew they couldn't open it conventionally. This required planning, an intelligent direction, meaning this is no random act of violence. This means they are probably more prepared than usual. Hopefully this snatch and grab doesn't turn into a massacre.

Slade was now taking cover behind a pillar in the large open space of the third floor of the warehouse. two cyborgs were firing their weapons in his direction. A third cyborg was face down on the ground in a puddle of his own blood. It was pretty obvious that he was the first one to maker contact with Slade. However he did manage to graze Slade in the shoulder with a pulse round before Slade lit him up. "Slade it's Anna, You're about to get some company, That explosion drew a lot of attention" Her voice rang through his mic.

Slade swallowed the searing burning feeling from the cauterized wound on his shoulder and replied. "Yeah I kind of figured that out" He said to her with a small wince from pain. quickly thinking he fired his shotgun in their direction to supress them. There was a large bay window near him. it faced the loading area and truck bay of the building. If it came to that, he would have to use that as his exit and regroup with a new strategy.

Annelise had cleared the first floor and was rounding the staircase to the second when a voice came through her headset. "Anna? This is Agent Stent. I'm coming to back you up. Don't do anything hasty until I get there."

She couldn’t help but smirk as she made her way through the floor “I’m not the one you should be telling that to.” As she crept through the room all she could hear was the rain that was now at a full downpour. “I already cleared the first floor and i’m finishing the second. Hurry up here, Slade’s above me and from the sounds of it he’s got quite the fight on his hands.”

The warehouse wasn’t privately owned so the reason they had so little security was questionable, especially when they’re storing things like Kardmium. She could hear shots coming from the next floor so she sped up her pace clearing the second floor. The last thing she needed was to get up there and have a cyborg get the jump on them. Finishing up the walkthrough of the floor she started her way back across the building, why they only had one staircase was a mystery all it’s own, one she didn’t care to learn. Halfway through the room she was greeted with a piece of wood to the face. She hit the ground harder than the wood hit her. Son of a bitch. Whoever it was was extremely quiet, that or the rain was drowning out their noise.

Blinking a few she shot up just in time to dodge an incoming kick. He had cybernetic legs, anyone of his kicks is capable of breaking some bones. She quickly moved behind a crate moving low to the ground not be seen, she had him in her sights and hopefully all she needed was one shot. His legs were his main cybernetics although he also had an enhancement on his spine most likely connected to a brain implant. Taking either out would make him as good as dead. He was looking around like a madman clearly having lost sight of her, making a perfect time to spring into action. She jumped out of cover only having to fire two shots. One directly on the spine and the other on his leg.

It worked just as she planned, hitting the main part of legs completely crippled him and the spinal column shot paralyzed his movement. It was a risky move that luckily paid off.
She dabbed her lip with her finger as she walked up to the paralyzed cyborg “You busted my lip.”

“I’ll kill you.” he said through clenched teeth.
She took her pistol and put it to his temple and pulled the trigger, there was no need to waste a shock bullet for an easy kill shot.

Colton rushed around the corner to the back of the warehouse, but failed to see Anna. Shit. Maybe she went in after Gunnerson. He knew that Anna was capable of handling herself, and if she made it to Slade, then nothing short of an AT missile could stop them.

Stent brought up Anna on his comm, "this is Colton again. New plan: I'll stay around the back in case any manage to slip by you. Make sure Slade doesn't destroy the Kardmium with his heroics."

The young-blood drew his weapon and found some cover behind some miscellaneous crates and rubbage where he could also keep an eye out for any cyborgs exiting the warehouse. Awaiting for Officer Gulbrandsen's response, Colton keenly scanned the area. Just because the break-in was sloppy, doesn't mean that some of these guys don't have any fancy toys. The rain reached a heavy downpour but Colton Stent was used to these conditions. Ever since the Synth Crisis, the city itself seems down, almost crying for the hustle and bustle of its former life.

As he scanned the area, Stent noticed something... odd. The rain was hitting something. Something that wasn't there.

Anna quickly turned out of the stairwell and fired at two cyborgs opening firing towards Slade. They didn’t notice her coming making the kill rather quick. She dragged one body away from the doorframe and took cover where he once was. Peeking around the edge she spotted the four remaining cyborgs taking cover and or firing in Slade’s direction. She spotted his head bobbing behind a pillar on the far side of the floor behind several crates. The borgs were sandwiched between the two of them and if they played it right were easy picking.

“Slade i’ve got yo-” Another explosion erupted from outside cutting her off, much louder than the small one Slade created when she first arrived. Peeking around the corner there was nothing but fire on the outside and the windows had been shattered from the blast.

“Stent what the hell is happening out there?” she said back on her comms. This better not be a goddamn setup.

Slade was relieved when he saw that Anna had shown up.She was one of the officers he trusted, even though she had cybernetics, she was a survivor like him and She had earned his trust by coming through for him on numerous occasions. She quickly disposed of the two cyborgs that were supressing him. And he turned his focus on the remaining four that were now sandwiched between him and her at different positions. "Welcome to the Par- " He stopped when a large explosion went off and fire blew a window near a cyborg. Was that a bomb? Slade didn't know but his reflexes kicked in. The explosion had also distracted the cyborgs who looked towards the window. Slade moved from his cover and crouched right in front of the large box that the nearest cyborg was hiding behind.

"Hey where did he go?" He heard it say. Shotgun in hand, Slade rose up and put the barrel below his chin. taking the cyborg by surprise. Pulling the trigger quickly and looking away and crouching down. A mist of blood and grey matter took place of his head for a few split seconds before the body slumped to the ground. The other cyborgs were beginning to frenzy. Which is just what he wanted, their aim became sloppy and and they began yelling. He holstered his shotgun again and pulled out his pistol. Firing it he put a round through a second cyborgs eye causing the back of it's head to blow out. 2 Left. Now that Slade had better cover he could relax a little bit. "What the hell was that? Did our guys just get hit?" He said firing at the next cyborg.

Slade had managed to blow away two more cyborgs making the rest become a clumsy mess. Anna stepped out of cover and fired several rounds into the neck of one of the raving cyborgs, taking him by surprise.

"What the hell was that? Did our guys just get hit?" Slade yelled to her firing at the only cyborgs left.

Anna slid into cover behind a close pillar “I don’t know, Stent hasn’t responded to me yet.” she quickly peeked out and unloaded on the second cyborg and a shock round must have hit a sweet spot because sparks started to fly from the cybernetics. He collapsed to the floor still flying sparks, he was clearly dead.

She let out a light sigh as the battle finally ended and left her cover making sure they all were dead. The only light source in the room was the fire that raged outside. “We need to get out there.”

Anna didn’t wait for a response from Slade as she was already hurrying down the stairs while trying to get Stent on the comms. Making her way outside the loading bay was looking much more hectic than when she originally arrived. Looking through the rain she spotted a person on the ground. It was Stent. Running over she realized he was completely dazed with his eyes glazed over. “Stent. Are you alright?”

Just when Verena though things could not get any worse, an explosion was perform and it wasn't hers. The Doctor was knocked to the ground forcefully causing the glass in her electronic shades to fragment into tiny piece stabbing her right eye and her radar to malfunction. She was already out in the open, however near a window that led to the inside of the warehouse; thus she crawl as quickly as Verena could smelling the aroma of the fire, blood, death. A splash of vomit oozed from her lips as the feeling of light-headedness only made matters worse. She did not stop to observe her surroundings, the Doctor weakly inched through what use to be a window. Verena took one glance out the opening to only see what hell has been unleashed.

If Verena did not lose a majority of her sanity she would probably say a smart comment like, "Someone trying to steal my show, hmm? I will give you that one, you mysterious stranger..." And continue to keep her calm, but she only held on a thin single strand of mental stability, and the last thing Verena ever be at the moment was calm. Verena was the one who now needed a doctor, the metal of her left arm blazed with flames and was now slowly melting, but was the arm hiding her non-lethal weapon, but ironically she was not planning to be merciful, not after what she had been through. Thankfully, she was smart and quick enough to preserve the bomb by covering the backpack with her stomach when crawling to the warehouse outside. Not only did Verena hold the bomb but in her leather vest jacket pocket she had was equipped with the detonator, so technically she could add her finishing touches to the hellhole if she wanted to. But all Verena wanted to do was survive, and if she couldn't then the Doctor wanted to leave out with a bang. So, yes the Doctor would do something so cruel as using the bomb as an advantage.

Walking through the warehouse she did not discovered any cops searching the first floor probably because they were already trying to chase after what maniac made it rain hell fire. So the Doctor limped to the second floor, though her radar was no at its best working abilities but it could vaguely target some kind of predator or predators above her. Was it three, or four? She could not tell but they were probably cops trying to clean up. She rather not make it up on the rooftop, instead she decided to lure them somehow. Therefore, Verena placed the bomb on the floor next to feet and began to three gunshots with a gun she picked off of a dead cop on the floor below.

"Hopefully that got their attention, if not, this bomb will!" she shouted to herself, firming grasping the detonator. What Verena was about to do was both crazy and risking, because for the first time Verena was going to negotiate with he police .

“We need to get out there.”

And just like that, Anna sprinted down the stairs as quickly as she could. Slade was a little rattle from a shockwave that seemed to come from the structure of the warehouse. Everything seemed out of place and it wasn't that cyborg's disembodied head splattered against the floor. No, there was a sudden sense of urgency and then Slade could hear it, the faint cries from outside. Gunnerson moved up to the window and witnessed a most horrific sight.

The cops were scrambling about, completely engulfed in flames. All the patrol cars were also lit up and it seemed as though the rain was helping to spread the fire. Seeing this and a small crater where the missile impacted, Gunnerson realized he had seen something similar before and knew this had to be a chemical-based explosion. The flames danced and licked the bodies, burning brightly for all in the neighborhood to see. Slade turned away to follow Anna and help get things settled. This was a call for action.


OOC: Wheezy Mcgee is out of town and allowed me to post on his behalf until Monday.

The ringing, the incessant ringing. There was nothing but the ringing, until Stent received a friendly wake up. It was Anna, gently slapping his face, helping him come to.

"Colton. Colton! Come on, Colton!" Anna shouted, volume increasing as the ringing finally began to subside.

Groggy, Stent rose to his feet with the aid of Anna. He noticed Slade step from out of the building.

Gunnerson? Good, that means they must've have dispatched with the hostiles. But that explosion wouldn't have been Slade's fault... probably. Yeah, that saboteur had bombs. But the building is still standing. So why does Officer Gulbrandsen look so concerned? And are those screams? Is that the smell of burning fle-

"Colton, what happened?" Anna asked with a strong sense of urgency.

"I... dunno," Stent began, as he clutched his side. "There was a bomber. I saw it, a cyborg, out here planting bombs."

Slade spoke up, "Well we got about a dozen or so uniforms out there doused in flames. I figure they're completely soaked in some kinda chemical."

"Wait a moment," Colton said as he began to remember a bit more. "Right before I was hit with the blast, I heard an explosion from out front. That's two explosions. And the cyborg back here seemed a bit taken back themselves. That means we could have two bombers. In all likely hood, this was a trap and either A, the explosives were setup beforehand or B, the first bomber had a clear shot to launch an explosive. Officer Gulbrandsen, call for help, but make sure HQ has some suits sweep all the vantage points the bomber could have used. Slade, go check for survivors of the blast and see if anyone escaped the inferno. I'll scope out the warehouse to see if there's any clue as to what just went down and why."

"No shit Sherlock......" Slade muttered to himself as he heard Colton's plan. He turned and headed towards the front of the building where the carnage and away from Colton and Anna. A few seconds later the he was at the front of the building. THe air was a lot warmer and it was full of the smells of flesh and rubber, and chemicals. Most of the fire had subsided and it left in its wake a lot of dead cops. He didn't see many survivors however the few that did survive were now severely burned, and ironicly would probably need cybernetics to survive. The thought of this made Slade furious, these were good men and women, and it shouldn't have come to this. A few of the officers that survived the blast and were ok had detained a cyborg that looked to be carrying a bomb. He would deal with her later, as of right now a lot things needed to be answered.

Slade looked around to see if he could spot where this explosion came from, Out of the corner of his eye his goggles locked onto a figure jumping from a nearby taller building onto the warehouse. It couldn't be who he thought it was, Slade hadn't seen or heard from him in a while. "Gunnerson what the hell happened down there? Who did this?" Said the sarge's voice from his mic. "I don't know but I think I'm gonna find out..." He said turning off his mic as he began to run back into the warehouse to confront the stranger. More and more questions began to pile up.

After being met with some sarcasm from his fellow officers, Stent marched into the warehouse. From inside, he could see both Slade checking on the officers, some of which were negotiating with an oddly familiar cyborg.

Alright, time to scan for clues. Crates of kardmium were strapped with rigs for easy hauling, provided these thugs had the right equipment. This only confirmed Stent's suspicion that they were trying to steal the precious alloy. An overlooked fact by the general public is that insanity does not always equate to a complete loss of faculties, as some simply gained a screwed up moral compass or skewed sense of what's ethical. This always made it hard to deal with the cyborgs. Either they were mad or believed so strongly that they were immune.

The plasma burns and position of this husk indicates that one cyborg sacrificed himself to create this hole in the wall. A plasma core this volatile is likely a class four upgrade. Most cyborg's can't afford that. This is likely tied to activity of maybe a larger gang. Back at HQ, I'm going to need to look into gang activities. They're getting bolder no-

A gentle thud on the roof caught Colton's attention and shortly after, he noticed Slade moving back towards the warehouse. It would probably be a good idea to investigate.
