[Equipment]
Personal Weapons:
.357 Magnum: A minniature revolver magnum requiring .357 caliber ammo, with a blade attatchment. It can only hold 6 bullets in it, before it has to be reloaded. He keeps it holstered in a custom holster on his right thigh.
Combat Grenades Mk. II, three different types.
1st.)Acid Fog Grenade - Delay Time: 10 seconds. Ace contains 4.
Contains a deadly mixture with similar properties to Trifluoromethanesulfonic acid. An explosive charge in the grenade detonates, and causes the mix to become a dense cloud of acidic gas. The gas can cause a person to go blind within seconds, whilst inhaling the gas will cause the lungs to dry out and victims to have fatal seizures. The gas also burns and destroys any flesh it comes into contact with. The grenade has been deemed too dangerous for use in many contries, and are forbidden on board EDEN territory.
2nd.)Frag - Delay Time: 5 seconds. Ace contains 6.
Uses an explosive charge to send shrapnel and ball bearings flying in all directions at high speed. (Also a standard ETAF weapon.)
3rd.)Thermite Grenade - Delay Time: 5 seconds. He contains 2.
A magnetic case allows the grenade to be placed securely on metal areas of vehicles and structures before igniting a thermite charge inside the grenade. The grenade does not have to be secured on metal to detonate.
"Mess Rock" is a weapon and a survival tool. It is a simple, sharp and crude flint rock inside a hand-sized wooden case. He normally keeps it in his backpack or his pocket.
Issued/Standard Weapons:
Teslatic Pistol Mk. I: A Teslatic Pistol is an energy weapon requiring Energy Cells as ammunition. Unlike other energy weapons that draw all energy from an EC (Endergy Cell) and use one EC as one ammunition, the Teslatic Pistol is extremely effecient. It draws half of the energy from an EC and amplifies it into about 5 times that of an EC. Then, a built in electromagnet recycler takes the half energy and recycles some of it back into the cell. Using this, it can fire 22 shots from one energy cell. The energy from the EC is amplified along the tesla barrel, and discharged from the end as a flat "square" of electro-plasma energy. As it gets about four feet from the gun, it turns into a frizbee-sized halo perpindicular to the ground. The Halo is blue in color, comprized of plasma, and the area inside the halo is a small EMF. When it hits an organic object, it applies massive ammounts of electrical energy (enough to kill two humans) and if it hit metal it not only releases the electricity, but the central EMF acts as an EMP. Also, while the gun is firing and the energy is being amplified it emits a small EMF around the gun, turning off any technology within 3 feet. It can shoot these halos up to 150 ft, and it is a semi-automatic pistol.
SR-25, semi-automatic sniper rifle, outfitted with a riflescope, bipod and a detachable suppressor: The SR-25 semi-automatic sniper rifle uses a rotating bolt and a direct impingement gas system. It is loosely based on Stoner's AR-10, rebuilt in its original 7.62×51mm NATO caliber. Up to 60% of parts of the SR-25 are interchangeable with the AR-15 and M16—everything but the upper and lower receivers, the hammer, the barrel assembly and the bolt carrier group.[1] SR-25 barrels were originally manufactured by Remington Arms with its 5R (5 grooves, rounded) rifling, with twist 1:11.25 (1 complete turn in 11.25 inches or 286 millimetres). The heavy 20 in (510 mm) barrel is free-floating, so handguards are attached to the front of the receiver and do not touch the barrel.
Personal Attaire: Bandolier packs: Ace has a backpack and some bandolier packs, including a canteen holder. They are unnessisary when wearing his MCPA as the MCPA contains a small pocket-universe inventory.
Issued/Standard Combat Attaire:
Medium Combat Power Armor: Not super light, yet not super heavy, and mobile, the MCP armor houses an advanced scanning suit, like that of the Scout Armor. The suit itself is less mobile than the scout suit, but not bad, and the power suit has increased 'muscle' on the legs, allowing for faster sprints. The MCPA is more armored than the Scout armor, at a cost of slightly slower running and being heavier by around 20 lbs. The suit comes with a kinetic shield generator, producing a small, thin static field around the armor that acts as a shock absorber. This can absorb impact from bullets, resulting in them being less damaging and can also help if falling from a high place. It takes a few seconds to charge up, and it is NOT a force field. It is fragile, can be broken, and doesn't stop bullets all the way only muffles the impact. MCPAis fitted with a back-mounted TX-28 MicroFusion Pack which generates 60,000 Watts to power the HiFlo hydraulic systems built into the frame of the suit. Made of the poly-laminate composite, the MCPA shell is lightweight and capable of absorbing over 2500 Joules of kinetic impact. The 10 micron silver ablative coating can reflect laser and radiation emissions without damage to the composite subsurface. The eye slits are also bullet proof. The armor carries its own fuel, and is enough to last about three years of constant use. It opens up from the back automaticaly. Also, the visor on the inside of the helmet contains a screen display similar to the NueroHeadset worn by those on board EDEN.
Ammunitions:
.357 rounds, 6 boxes. He keeps them in his backpack.
Energy Cell (EC). Energy Cells are relatively small, one being about as big as 3 AA batteries side-by-side. It is a small, self-contained energy storage unit often associated with one-handed energy weapons and acts essentially as a very powerful battery or capacitor. Energy cells were used for many things such as energy weapons and regular house hold appliances, and as such are not considered "conventional ammo," though they are used as such.
7.62 x 51 mm caliber ammunition: He has 10 boxes and keeps them in his backpack.

So begins...

Forevermore Maria
As she walked down the halls, the opposite direction of the mess hall/canteen, and all the carnage, she booted up her NeuroHeadset. She was not the only one, as 99/100 of the passengers had one. It was like the cellphone of this age. The glasses projected information and other things inside the glasses where only her eyes could see. But to be more complex and access more things, she made it project a holographic screen in front of her as she walked. She opened it into four screens in front of her, and she wrote down everything she could remember about this new species. Except one part was missing... The scientist forgot to mention the name of this new species. She shrugged and left the folder with the text files titled as "New Species".
Finally, she reached her pod and opened it. Just what she had hoped for, she saw her roommate laying in his bed.
"Ace. Wake up."


Ace Grant
Ace sat up and saw Forevermore standing in the doorway. Ace had just gotten back from briefing. The soldiers of the ETAF had to learn a lot of things about Europa, mainly which animals where hostile so they could protect others. Thats what they were there for mostly.
"Yes?" He asked.

"They've discovered a new species. Not a nice one either. Infact, it's worrying many scientists."
"Oh, great!" He said sarcastically. "Just what we need. More aliens to worry about." He sighed.
"I'll send you the files when I get more information." She said. Then she raised an eyebrow when she saw all of his things packed into his backpack and bandolier packs.
"What?" He asked. "We have less than six days until landing. You should pack you items too." He said.
She looked at her bed to see her bow laying on it, her scout armor folded on the foot of the bed, and her sword laying on the floor. She sighed, nodded, and then put them in her own backpack. Once she was done, she announced that she was going for a walk and left the room.
Some ways down the hallway she contacted the student scientist on her NeuroHeadset.
"Hey, how about an update?" She asked.

The scientist nodded. "Okay, we have a name for the species. Umbra Venator, is what we're calling them. It means "Dark Hunter" in Latin."
"Fitting name." She stated. "Any more sightings?"
"Actually, yes. We've spotted two more that didn't seem to notice the probes." He sighed. "These Umbra Venators are obviously extremely dangerous, aggressive and territorial. More so than anything from Earth. I don't know how we can live alongside them."
She nodded. That was what her worry had been. She kept walking, her mind occupied as the scientist rambled on. "Okay, I have to go. Keep an eye out for more." She said and ended the call.

While the scientists and some of the crew were worrying about the Umbra Venator, another probe found its way to a very large mountain that was surrounded by a storm cloud. The mountain was at least the size of Mount Everest on Earth, and above the cloud, the peak of the mountain was covered in snow, and looked beautiful. Below, however was a different story. The mountain was bare, with rocks jutting out from the side, what plants did grow were small, and had adapted to the low light environment underneath the giant storm cloud. The probe would continue to move through the landscape of the mountainside, stopping at the mouth of a huge cave. The fearless probe ventured into the depths of the cave. Oddly enough, it didn't need to activate its night-vision or thermal-imaging, or even turn on its lights due to the fact that the inside of the cave was covered in crystal that glowed brightly enough for all to see clearly. Anyone watching the video feed from the probe would have their jaws hanging open at the discovery.

Before the probe was a massive creature, maybe about twenty feet in height, and maybe fifty feet in length from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail. The scales were a dark purple, and the wings were huge, as well as the rest of the body of the beast. The drone moved closer to the head of the beast, and the large horns also came into view, as well as the large teeth that poked out from between the lips of the beasts maw. What was before the probe was a Dragon. But not just any Dragon, a Storm Dragon, and it was fully grown. This Dragon had the powers over Wind, Water, and Electricity-lightning being the main source of Electricity.

But, humans wouldn't know what Dragons look like, would they? After all, they don't have any true Dragons on Earth. Sure they have Komodo Dragons, but they aren't true Dragons. Nor are the other reptilians with flaps of skin that act like wings. They are not capable of true flight through the power of pure muscle.

There was no more cave beyond the Dragon, so the probe turned around, heading out of the cave. Lightning struck all around the probe, sometimes just feet away. The thunder bellowed, as if yelling, warning the probe to leave and never return. All this would be sent to EDEN, which was approaching Europa II.

Forevermore Maria
Ten minutes had passed. Ten minutes since she ended the call. Then she was startled as none other than the student called her. Again.
"What is it?"

"Y-you won't believe this... We're still in shock over here in group H."
"Group H?"
"All of the scientists are split into groups. Those who study animals and their behavior are groups G, H and I. Anyway, that's off subject. We've discovered yet another species. You won-◙|3↑'■√α█¿¡E-drago-*6╪▬ç¬-and it's extremely da-¿$♂╢▌▐\z▀B¬"
Forevermore raised an eye as the call's audio went to shit, then static, then the call dropped. Suddenly all the lights in the whole entire ship flickered off. She jumped and shrieked at it's unexpectedness. Soon, the backup generators kicked in, red light glowing up the hallways.
"What the hell is going on..." She said. She bolted to the room she had been to this morning, where she had met the student and the other lady. It had taken her about twenty minutes to get there and when she got there she found the place hastily abandoned. She sat down at a computer and booted up the terminal. She was no computer expert, but everyone in this age knew how to use computers. She was shocked to see a message there.

|===================================|
|INTERSTELLA XXIV - EDEN
|ACCESS PROTOCOL 10.77

|===================================|
ETAF eyes only? Why had it appeared on every computer? Accidentally? She pressed enter and a new message came up, and this was probably the reason everyone left.
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
All non-essential personnel make way towards the pods. An emergency is imminent. Please make your way to the pods. ETAF members and scientists please secure any data you can and make your way to a pod with supplies. Transmission ended.
Ohhh kayyy... She opened up the computer's files. It asked for an access code. She entered 0x00504945. Then she uploaded all the data she could about the animals of Europa II into her NeuroHeadset. She also copied both messages into a text file, just in case she needed to review them later. Suddenly the the red lights were accompanied by alarms as the regular generators kicked back in. It shrieked a warning to everyone in the ship to make their way to a pod safely. She looked around, grabbed and Imperial Stimpak that was on the desk and made her way back to her pod. Halfway there, the ship lurched to the side. The floor was at a 45 degree angle now, and the sound of bending metal could be heard. She ran to her pod, opened he door, and jumped in to see Ace strapped into his bed.
"Where the hell were you? The ship is soon to fall apart! Something weird is going on! The commander ordered a Defcon 3."
She nodded. "I know, I know. The ship is going to crash. They're going to launch the pods into Europa." She said as she started changing into her armor.
"What are you doing? You're not leaving this pod. Maria!"
She ignored him, and after getting suited up, she strapped her sword to her side, quiver and bow on back and backpack over it. She looked to him, "You don't understand do you? If we're left to our own devices on Europa we will die. I'm going to the medical district to get supplies. Are you coming?"
Ace stared at her long and hard. "You're crazy." He said as he started unbuckling his straps. He quickly grabbed his duffel bag and backpack, which were already packed, and left the pod with Forevermore. "If you're going to the medical district... I'll go to the Armory grab anything I can, then I'll head to the hangars and boot up your robot, ED-A."
She nodded, tears almost in her eyes. "Take care, brother. We'll meet back in our pod... And if we don't, we'll meet on Europa. We still have our NeuroHeadsets." And with that, they parted ways.

Forevermore Maria
It had taken a few minutes, but eventually Forevermore made it to the Medical Center. She looked around and noticed that there was a door to a back room. She ran to it, but it was locked. A computer with a running terminal program was beside the door. She contacted Ace.
"Ace. The Med-Lab is locked with a password.

"The password should be... '0x0000003E'. It's an easy password, used just to keep the common folk out."
She nodded and closed the call, then entered the password. After two beeps and a green light, the door slid open. She entered the room and started opening crates and throwing things into her duffle bag. Duct tape, scalpels, surgical tubing, leather belts, two small food sanitizers, a few medical supply kits/first aid kits, some blood packs, more surgical tubing, saline bags, and a bag of yellow fluid that looked similar to saline. She also grabbed some different containers with pills in them, and some painkillers in both pill and some vial hypodermic needle. She looked around frantically. They didn't have time to inspect every little thing, so instead she just shoveled things into the bag. Then she saw it. A metal crate with three very simple words printed across it. 'Stimulation Delivery Packages.'
"Yes! Stimpaks!" She said, then opened the crate and threw as many Stimpaks of all kind into her duffle bag. Eventually she had to stop, and she slung the bag over her shoulder. She stopped to think. Was there anything else she was forgetting?
No. She couldn't think of anything. She started to leave the Medical Center.


Ace Grant
Ace had made it to the armory where he started loading random bullets, and random boxes of ammo, into his backpack. He loaded tons of energy cells, as they were valuable, many robots and weapons used them as energy sources. The things were the size of three AA batteries, and he loaded about six pounds of them into his duffle bag. He grabbed some other energy weapon ammo, a few grenades, then went on to the supply room. The supply room had things a soldier would need on the field. The main reason he went there was to grab as many MRE's as he could, grab a few lighters, and a gallon of gasoline. His duffle bag weighed a lot now, and he figured now was as good a time as any to make his way back to their pod. It took him about five minutes. The second his pod door closed, he sighed.
"What a relief to be back to relative safety and away from the noise of the alar-" Suddenly the whole ship lurched sideways, a deep groan-ish creak of metal bending on metal could be heard. He froze. It was the type of freeze you'd get when you were scared. It was an oh shit moment. He tried to contact Forevermore, but there was no connection. The only thing he could do was lay in his pod bed, strap himself in, and wait.


Forevermore Maria
Forevermore had been running along the corridors when the whole ship lurched sideways. She was thrown against the wall, and fell to the ground. Suddenly, she felt lighter. Much lighter...
Weightless.
"Oh shit." She said as she felt the effects of antigravity kick in. The ships on board gravity generator obviously had either been shut off, broken or had a problem. Then, something worse happened. A loud, high pitched creak and a deep, low pitched groan was heard all over the ship as the metal bent and twisted. Forevermore was no expert on space and planets and all, but she did know one thing. Orbiting Europa II had eventually put them in a position where they were in between both Europa II and the planet it orbited. Being in orbit of Europa II meant they were in its Roche Limit. This was normally fine, as she ship was strong enough for it to not be a problem... But when they came in between the two they hadn't anticipated the planet's larger and stronger gravitational field and more violent Roche Limit. As a result, Europa II and it's planet were playing a game of cosmic tug of war with EDEN.
Suddenly, the bulletproof glass windows of the hallways cracked. Air started leaking out of the ship. Then, boom. Thud, thunk, boom. windows were completely blown out as their metal frames bent and twisted. The vacuum of space started sucking at anything and everything. She was safe in her suit, but it would only last for so long. She grabbed onto the wall and hurled herself forward, until she finally reached her pod. She opened the door as fast as she could, then closed it.

"Finally! You took forever!"
Forevermore did nothing but simply nod, throw her duffle bag and backpack onto her bed, enter the door's lock code, and emergency launch code, strap herself in the bed and wait.
17... 16... 15... 14... 13... 12... 10... 9... 8... 7... 6... 5... 4... 3... 2... 1-
Boom, the escape pod detached from the ship and shot towards Europa II at high speeds.

The noise, it was...loud. As the ship crashed down to the surface Europa II, the ground shook , causing rock slides from the giant mountain that was surrounded by Storm clouds. Deep within the mountain, the great Dragon of Storm awoke, his White eyes opening and the Draconian slit-like pupils adjusting to the light. He had been asleep for years, and now he was awakening. His wings spread out and he stood, stretching himself out. As he did, the clouds surrounding the mountain would begin to fade away, revealing the beautiful mountain peak for all to see.

From his cave the great Dragon walked, and he looked around as his wings stretched out to their full span, and his tail flopped around absentmindedly behind him. It would be a while before he was capable of flight again, but for now, he was hungry. He went from the cave and towards the crash site of the EDEN star ship. Before he got to it, he reached the great plains that were on the western side of his mountain. He noticed a large heard of deer-like creatures, and he started to run with great speed towards them. Before the deer-like creatures knew what hit them, he had already captured a few within his maw and was in the process of swallowing them whole.

He needed more food, and he looked around, his wings again stretching out, feeling the wind hitting his wings was refreshing. His wings flapped gently, the muscles still not fully awake, and still not capable of hauling him into the air for flight. The last he remembered, there were mammoth-like creatures he used to prey upon, but they must have migrated to the other side of the planet to find food of their own.

He then continued a stroll around the entire mountain, marking it as his territory by slashing the trees with his claws, digging trenches in the grass, and leaving his great foot prints in the ground, along with leaving his scent over other things like rocks by rubbing against them.

It wasn't long before he smelt something that he had never smelled before. He didn't know what it was, and he knew just about everything about this planet, after all, he practically ruled over the fertile and untouched lands with a calm rule, and the occasional thunder storm if he was angry. The animals acknowledged his authority over them, and acknowledged his power as well.

But would the humans do the same? What was their purpose here? What even were they? What did they look like? How did they behave with each other and with other animals? So many questions, and they only way to answer them was to observe the bipedal creatures and their technology.

Birds flew over head, and the Dragon flapped his wings hard, knocking over a few trees nearby with the gusts of wind coming from him. Soon he flew up, and he marked his return with a loud roar, which echoed across the lands with a deep rumble, similar to thunder.

The explosives were only a distraction, Sya knew that. The heat was enough to hide the Black Titan from the radars while he shot precisely aimed laser bursts at the mechs' boosters, he only managed to hit seven, the rest were able to dodge. Without the boosters the downed mechs lost control and entered the planet's gravitational pull instead, and could not right themselves for optimal atmospheric entry angle formation and they burned up. There were 46 of those things left and they fired at the Titan. Sya did not need to dodge, these were only meant as a diversion, it was common knowledge among the forces of the planet that energy weapons were useless on the mechs,and he braced for close quarters combat. The mechs were trying to flank him, but stopped and instead turned and began to enter the atmosphere risking their backs to him.

Temperatures were increasing drastically, but the Black Titan did not need to enter formation. Sya proceeded to destroy the boosters that were stabilizing their descent and the mechs burned up in the atmosphere of the moon.

As he had feared, the engines exploded and Sya was forced to move away from his position on the ship and begin his own descent. A few mechs manage to survive, he will have to deal with them later.

He noticed a few pods also performing atmospheric entry. Something was wrong, they were entering at dangerous angles. He quickly flew towards them and grabbed to correct one of them. The sensors identified the occupants to be Forevermore Maria and Ace Grant. The names did not strike him to be important an he moved on to save as many pods as he could.

The Black Titan could fly only so fast and the remainder of the pods were lost. He maneuvered to the landing site of the leftover mechs to initiate the final battle.

(I had started writing this post before Scorpion01 made his most recent post. I started it 11 minutes after Dementedness' most recent post. Some things may not be accurate as a result but I don't feel like editing.)
Pod 14 had entered Europa II's atmosphere 6 minutes prior to any other pod. It had been the first to launch. The signal had traveled to every other pod, and in turn, every other pod that was occupied had launched because someone else had launched. However, 14 had a deviation off of course and landed about ten minutes away from any other pod. The occupants had also been knocked unconscious for about 45 minutes.
Forevermore Maria
As her eyes flicked open, she gasped from the humidity of the pod. The door's locking mechanism had blown out from the crash, opening the door, but everything and everyone (Forevermore and Ace were the only ones in the pod) was fine. She undid the buckles holding her in her bed, then lightly slapped Ace awake. She grabbed her backpack and duffel bag, then exited the pod.
Ace Grant
Ace tried to sit up quickly, but was stopped rather rudely by the straps holding him down. He undid them, and sat in his bed. After a few minutes of catching his breath, he switched into his MCPA armor, put his backpack in the storage compartment of the back, sniper under it on his back,Teslatic pistol at his hip, magnum in his backpack with the mess rock, and he kept ever one of his grenades in a bandolier pack he had strapped to his other leg's thigh, over the armor. She then slung his own duffel bag over his shoulder and exited the pod.
And he gasped.
The world outside was a beautiful jungle, overgrown from millions of years of being untouched by anything sentient building anything, The atmosphere was 100% unpolluted, and as such was very, very clear. The day sky didn't even hardly have as much of a blue color, and you could see the stars. Though, there was light pollution from the moon, the planet, and the star, and as such other stars were much less bright. Ace could tell that once night came it would be ten times over more beautiful.
He looked around at the landscape. They had landed in a dense jungle, but in a clearing about 50 yards wide. It would be an idea camping ground, as the sky could actually be seen and it was nearly clear aside from tall grass, they wouldn't stay. First order of business was to find other humans. He looked over at Forevermore, who was dressed in her own armor.
"Hey... Any intel of other's locations?"

Forevermore Maria
Forevermore shook her head. "I tried contacting the scientist, but to no avail. There are satellites around the planet, but if no one has connected their NeuroHeadsets, then they cannot be contacted." She sighed. She then ran a GPS scan, and a few dots appeared around the continent she was on. She zoomed in. Two were standing together, not far from where they were. A different signal appeared about equally as far from the two dots as they were from them, though on the other side. This signal wasn't a Headset, but was a robot of sorts. She noticed another dot travelling rather fastly across the GPS then finally coming to a stop. The dot was that of a robot, though it was strange that it seemed to be... flying... This reminded her of something-
And she stifled a strained cry.

Ace noticed Forevermore was upset, and he asked what was wrong out of being worried.
"YOU LEFT ED-A IN THE LOADING BAY, WHICH WAS DESTROYED!" She yelled out, disturbing a flock of alien birds nearby and causing them to take flight from the tree of which they were perched.
"Calm down, Marie! No I didn't. I didn't have time to retrieve her, but I sent wake up override codes to her. She woke up and made it to a pod nearby, she is most likely somewhere safe on this continent. And you know well more than anyone she will make her journey to you.
She nodded. ED-A was safe. That's what mattered. "I didn't see her signal on the GPS, so she must not have been re-awoken. She would have been shut off from the atmospheric entering. Can you turn her back on?"
He shook his head. "If I don't know her location, then I can't. Try looking for a group of robots, I sent her to a pod that had more than one robot in it."
She zoomed in on all of the groups, until finally the dot near the other two dots, that was a robot, also happened to have signals of other smaller robots around. She clicked on the dot and ran a scan. The robot's signal came back as an Omega, a type of non-human Mecha robot. She tapped the area. "Send the signal there. Most likely, that's where she went.
Ace nodded and wrote the override code. He then sent it in a decompiled format. The format could not be snatched, stopped, or blocked, but could only be copied and viewed. He then sent it to the area. If ED-A was in the area, then she would be awaken.

Omega 3 sensed the signal that was being sent for ED-A and traced it back to Forevermore and Ace. Since Omega 3 was waiting for the dragon to arrive he sent a signal to Ace and Forevermore telling them about all the human and robot positions he knew of hoping it would help their search. The signals he sent also told of a possible robot escape pod crash site that he hasn't investigated yet and it told them about the shelter they have set up.

Thylan grinned softly as he saw his friend turning down his offer. The first one was understandable; he needed his own resources. Although, he was sure that the second one had some secret behind it. Likewise, nobody could be sure what one could have planned. He only acted like if he understood. He got back near the house, when he noticed some activity with Omega 3. Of course, he had his connection with him silently; even if he was authorized, he preferred to keep it as a secret. He noticed that it sent a signal toward another robot, and he knew which one it was. He waited patiently. Once that the dragon would land down, he would have to greed them.

Then he noticed another string of signal that Omega 3 sent. It was possibly that there was someone using something the robot could understand. He tried to see to connect to one of the NeuroHeadset, since the signal was very poor due to the fact that it wasn’t connected to the satellite. 「 Hello, this is Thylan. Do you receive me correctly? 」he said, hoping that they would receive it and talk back to him. He did not connect himself to the satellite, but it wasn’t for forgetting, but for personal reasons.




She nodded then and there, understanding the dragon’s speech. With the quickness of her programs, she was able to understand his speech partly. It wasn’t a perfect translation, but it wouldn’t be a surprise coming from a creature with an unknown language. She deemed the information she collected unimportant, and marked as not to sync. She wouldn’t like to share something if it was wrong. Even for a robot, she can make mistake.

She understood; the dragon wouldn’t like to cause the extinction of the human race, but there was a condition to it. First, they would have to not poison the planet. She could understand that he meant about the chemicals they used to send in Earth. Second, they would need to keep the species living on this planet alive. Camille could understand, but she wondered if the humans will understand as well.

The dragon seems to be very intelligent to consider that the human race might need room for expansion. She can notice that with her data, looking at how much the human habitations grew over the globe years and years before all of this started. It was really something to see. Of course, for now, she was the only one able to understand the potential of the human expansion, but understood that the jungle is a dangerous place for them to establish. Many would say that it wouldn’t be a problem, but she thought it was better to not mess with the unknown.

She felt confident enough when the dragon lifted off, since the dragon was friend and an ally to her. Camille’s face seems to light up when she received a signal from one of the Omega. She looked as the flare shoot high up in the sky, pointing at it. 「 I just got a signal from of the robots over there. It says that it want us to land near it. It wants to know you. 」She giggled softly; the knowing part made her smile. She didn’t know if the Omega was able to feel like her, but she guessed it was more of a security matter. She let the dragon fly there, appreciating the ecosystem.

Ace Grant
Ace received Omega's message, though he didn't have time. His NeuroHeadset beeped twice and the words "Incoming Transmission!" flashed across his vision. He accepted the call.
「 Hello, this is Thylan. Do you receive me correctly? 」
He opened another window, opening Omega's message, and noticed Thylan and Omega were together. "I acknowledge your transmission. The call has been received correctly. I am Ace Grant, and I am here with my sister Forevermore Maria."

Forevermore Maria
Meanwhile, Forevermore went back to the pod, entered the code saying it was on a planet and no longer in space, then stepped out again. The insides of the pod shifted about, beds turning to seats and more of the control panel being revealed. She then stepped inside again and ran a damage check. The only thing damaged was the door's locking mechanism... And the door. Oh well. She sat in the driver's seat and started it up. A low hum was heard as it's electromagnet repulsors kicked into gear, and the pod lifted up a few feet off of the ground. She watched as Ace went over to the pod and sat in the passenger's seat.
"We're closing in on your location. We are not hostile. We'll see you soon." He said to Thylan.
((This is how the pod looks like, everyone. Yes, they can be used as vehicles. http://cdn.obsidianportal.com/assets/95 ... Hatama.jpg))
「Eyebot Duraframe Subject A」
In the ruined pod Omega 3 had emerged from, another robot rebooted. The robot appeared to be a regular Eyebot. It shook a little, lifted off of the ground, and floated outside looking around and scanning. It made a few expository beeps, but only robots and some humans could understand it. A dragon would definitely not understand the workings of a Duraframe Eyebot.

The tail of the great Dragon would coil around Xi-14, and place her on the ground before the Dragon spread its wings and took off, flying back to the mountain and back into the cave that he called his home. He could now just simply watch what happened on the planet, and hope that the humans would follow the advice he had given Xi-14.

Thylan looked up at the dragon as it went and go. What a majestic beast. However, he might be trouble in his plans… He told back to Ace 「 Understood. I won’t be here when you arrive, but Omega and Xi-14 will be there for helping you. 」As he said that, he closed the communication Between him and the others, powering the wireless system of his eyepatch for now. He looked at Xi-14, then, saying: 「 Make sure that everyone is safe. I’m going check through the surroundings. 」When he finished his order, he took one of the box as his armor appear. The put the box on his back as it latched on the armor. He launched the Winc’s dynamic mode on his armor, and he quickly ran away. His speed was so great that he left a small wind behind him.

He had to reach a good distance away from everyone. It wasn’t safe to build such building around anyone he knew. He might be judged as a traitor and tried to be killed. Not that he minded, but he wants to make it effortless. He reached near the quarter of the speed of sound, around 200 miles per hour. He could go faster, but he wasn’t sure of the environment. Even with the data, you can never be too sure. After a while, on the other side of a mountain, he got close to the wall. He took the box off his back and opened up, pulling out four sharp metallic object. Thylan planted them on the wall of the mountain, deep enough and he entered a code in them. The ground shock a little bit so the walls could levitate a bit, covering the objects.

Once the rumble was finished, he moved through the rocky walls, and inside of it he could find his dad’s lab building up, tapping its energy from the heat inside of the volcano. Or more precisely, the heat from the core. He waited to make sure that everything was alright, but when he saw a giant tube containing a strange liquid; he almost cried.

Thylan was there, in the tube as he was woken up. Today was the day that he would be released. The day he would be breathing the same air as his dad’s. It all went well; he just needed a verification of his internal organs. He saw his dad’s face as one of his hand was on the glass. The little Thylan put his on the other side of the glass. Oh, how Thylan wish to be with him. Suddenly, a rumble was felt and his dad’s face changed as he turned around. He saw soldiers barging into his lab. With good intentions, he run the security program; turrets and barrier separated the soldiers from him and the rest of his works. He warned to the soldiers to not approach or he’ll open fire. Thylan was confident that his dad would be successful at defending, until the glass was painted in red. He watched as the body of what he known as his dad fell to the ground, dead. The corpse was soon disintegrated to ashes, and the glass was broken. From there, he wasn’t sure. His body was pulled through the glass, hearing dark screaming as the last thing he saw was his dad’s ashes flew away by the wind, fainting. That day, he knew what emotional pain meant. The next day, he spend his day weeping in an unknown room, under the blankets of an unknown bed.

Thylan, after the flashback, opened his eyes. He saw himself in front of a computer. The computer wasn’t hackable and undetectable from the outside the simple reason it hadn’t wireless component. If he needed to upload new information, he needed to do it physically. He saw a small spherical object floating on his shoulder. He looked at the small robot, saying「 Prepare the lab for the project 201-vnkla. I want it done before the night falls, when I’ll be back. 」The robot didn’t say anything and went to its task.

The soldier exited his lab, closing off the main access in it, and quickly made his way back to the small house. He didn’t care anymore; he going to accomplish what his dad always wanted. He dropped a few more of his little devices on his way back.





Xi-14 knew what Thylan meant by that. Although, she didn’t revealed the true nature of his orders. She only smiled up to Omega. 「 I’ve never saw something like you. 」Well, in her database, yes. She looked around, exploring the little base that Thylan set up for them until she fell upon the crate she was ordered to find. For a moment, she stayed there, completely oblivious to the content of the crate, until her memories was viewed. She knelt down, crying as she held her head. What a horrible seen that he system wanted to make her see. She hated it so much that no one could ever understand. For a robot that was self-aware, her emotions were the only thing that had an imperfection, or so she thinks. She was, after all, over caring for her Creator. She remember how awful she felt afterward. It was also the first time she killed…

Anyways, after she viewed the memory, she got up to her feet. She looked back at Omega, giving a small smile. 「I’m okay… It was just some fragmented files. I hate them.」Anyways, now that she got to the crate, she wasn’t sure what to do with it.

Another pod soon opened after the occupant woke up. The male human groaned as he woke, unstrapping himself and climbing out of his bed. The male human stood at six foot one inch tall, and his toned muscles were hidden by his long sleeved shirt and his pants, the former being dark green and the later a light brown. His shoes matched his pants. He reached into his bed and pulled out a six foot long bo-staff which was made from a light and durable metal, just like the bracers on his arms and the pauldron on his shoulder, which secured a travelers cape. He also had black hair, brown eyes, and lightly tanned skin.

His pod's transponder would go off, alerting anyone that could pick it up that he was alive. Weak, but alive. He walked around a little, aided by his staff, which kept him from falling to the ground. He wasn't used to using his legs anymore, and as such had to loosen them up before he could go anywhere. But first, he had to get to the others. The other person in his pod had woken up and was walking around as well. He nodded to them and they nodded back. They wore similar clothing, only this person was female, sister perhaps? Or fellow student? Either way, they were close even though they didn't seem to talk too much. However, both guesses would be correct.

"Are you alright, Brother?" the girl asked through a telepathic link they had due to the implants in their brains.

"I'm fine. My legs are stiff. Nothing to worry about." the male responded through the same link.

Brother then got to the control panel and made the pod into a vehicle, and flying it towards Omega 3 where it would land and open, allowing the two to come out of the pod, their capes wrapped around their bodies except for their right hands holding their staffs. They each would take deep breaths of the fresh air before the male stumbled around, stopping himself with his staff.

"Careful, James. You'll make yourself look like a fool if you fall over now." the female sent to him.

"The same goes to you, Korina." the male, identified as James by his sister, who was identified as Korina by James, sent back as he stretched out a little bit.

The male would then look around. "So this is Europa II. Interesting." he said.

The female would stand next to him and nod in agreement. "Indeed. Just think of all the places we could train here." she said, and they both laughed.

「Eyebot Duraframe Subject A」
ED-A, pronounced "E-D-A" by most, and "Edda" by those close to her, was a unique robot in disguise. She appeared as a common Eyebot. Commonly, an eyebot is a hovering, propaganda-spewing reconnaissance and surveillance robot with radio antennas pointing out its back, and loudspeakers in the front. Though ED-A wasn't a regular Eyebot. Being made by the same creator as Xi-14, ED-A was also one of very few Self-aware robots to ever be created. Whereas other robots can be programmed with huge loads of data and fake feelings to fool others, ED-A and Xi had real feelings. It was hard for ED-A, though. She was loaded with immense amounts of valuable data Thylan would need, and others would need too, and she had feelings, but she couldn't speak english.
ED-A floated over to Omega 3, and hovered by it in waiting for Forevermore and Ace. It sat still, its only movement being its slow and steady hovering, floating up and down. It kept up the charade of being a mindless Eyebot, but all the while it surveyed it's surroundings.
