TOUR 2 BEGINS
---

The angels passed the Domain Gate again, and emerged in the Spherical station once again. The Star orbiting it has changed position since the squad had seen it last, moving out of the immediate field of view of the station, and behind the actual Domain Gate, with the station now being lit with blueish artificial lights as opposed to the warm light of the star. A couple guards stationed within the station donned pressure stabilizers before heading outside, perhaps to patrol the area or undergo operations similar to the squad's orders. Other than these leaving guards, the station was eerily, as empty as it was on the other side of the gate; no signs of any angels, Sentain or Saintly, were anywhere to be seen, provoking Cosmac into getting fetching the pressure stabilizers... again.

The group then set off to Space, travelling past one arm of the galaxy to the next. This arm had been recently taken by the Sentain forces, but because of the spread-out nature of Space, it's easy for the Regnants to hide small stations and bases around these parts. Only a tedious scouting process could find these bases unless the scouts had coordinates, which Aulair's squad now had. The travel time between the void between the galaxy arms was long, but now that they had arrived, they seemed to just zip past star clusters as if they were grains of sand. The squad had finally arrived to a bright white star, accompanied by a single, dark-blue gas giant, decorated with a large set of beige-tinted rings large enough to cast a shadow on the main body, accompanied by a single moon that followed the rings' orbit. Lying among the rings, however, was a dim yellow light. The light was practically invisible when they had first approached the planet, but now that they had come closer, it became very clear, and stuck out like a sore thumb. Aulair deduced that the light must have come from the Battleship Hangar, to which Cosmac replied, "Yeah, no sh'it. Now how're we going to recon that place? if we get too close, they'll detect us on their radar."

Aulair rolled his eyes behind his helmet and responded. "They've probably got some facilities around this ring, maybe even a mining operation on that moon, so we could probably pop over there, kill a couple of their men, and steal one of their ships."

"Uh, that would still put us on the radar." Cosmac raised his eyebrows at Aulair's plan, equally questioning as he was stating a fact.

Aulair merely responded with a nod before explaining, "Yep. By the time we get a ship, any alarm they send will be too late, and besides, they'd be on the lookout for a patrol group out by the moon, not a full fledged shock team within their base itself. For how sophisticated their technology is, they aren't too bright themselves, remember?"

So the squad headed towards the dwarf moon, and, as predicted, there was a small mining colony set up in the center of one of the moon's craters. The group touched down near the lip of the crater, away from the prying eyes of their security. As the loose gravity of the a small moon started to take effect, the angels finally had a sense of where 'down' was, and were a little more comfortable than when they were speeding through space the day before. The Angels crept up towards the colony, using the shadow the crater wall produced as cover, being sure to stay out of sight... For the time, at least. After the long walk over there, they were now directly outside the colony's bounds, and by then, the light of the star had left the crater in total darkness, the only sources of light left being the yellow assistance lights scattered around the colony's buildings. As they made their way deeper into the complex, they stumbled upon a group of Regnant soldiers, garbed in simple pressure suits and armed with small rifle-like weapons. They had not seen the squad just yet. As Aulair and Cosmac took cover behind a rock ledge, the rest of the group were able to see something along with the soldiers; something that didn't seem right... It looked like a Cyborg. It stood around twice the size of the Regnants it was following, and stayed a little ways behind the group of soldiers. This Cyborg was definately not a Regnant, but also didn't look like any other species of Hellspawn; it looked unlike anything in the group's frame of reference. It stood on two goat-shaped legs, donning some kind of winged jetpack on his back, and had a gaping, worm-like mouth, easily visible even from a distance. The Cyborg also had some form of shroud over his chest, possibly covering a metal exoskeleton. One would almost mistake it for Malus if it weren't for the mouth.

As the group of soldiers accompanied the cyborg inside one of the colony's buildings, Aulair motioned for the group to follow him towards a ship hangar.

As the group followed Aulair towards the long, closed-in hangar, the squad noticed a small, hexagonal tile-shaped ship pulling up towards the end of the hangar before Cosmac opened one of the manually operated doors leading inside. They entered the building to a small room, with glass windows that provided them some sight throughout the rest of the building. As they made their way through the complex, the group came to a long hallway with only 2 doors; the one they had come from, and the one on the other end of the hall. As Sycal opened this door, she saw a large room, with Regnants operating some computer terminals. She noticed two small devices on the ceiling that resembled the turret she had been knocked out by, only this one was smaller and seemed to be deactivated. As she looked, she noticed one of the Regnants looked directly at her with a stunned expression on its face. There was no sneaking around this situation anymore, and she had to make the first move.

BATTLE 1 BEGINS:

Special Rules:
1: This turn, Sycal is the only one that can attack.

Regnant Guard 1: 2/2
Regnant Guard 2: 2/2 [unreadied]
Regnant Guard 3: 2/2 [unreadied]
Regnant Guard 4: 2/2 [unreadied]
Unknown Turret 1: 4/4 [unreadied]
Unknown Turret 2: 4/4 [unreadied]


Nathaniell lagged behind the group, but because he was behind everyone, he noticed that Malus's whip had been drifting itself towards some electrical wire on the hallway wall, before coming into contact with it, gripping it firmly.

The return of zero gravity was hardly welcome but largely without its issues. Krista still felt used to it after the day before, and Nathaniell didn't feel nauseous at all, despite the fact that he had never experienced true weightlessness — if fact, he didn't seem to understand what it was or how it worked. He continued to flap his wings as if there were still an opposing gravitational force and subsequently flung himself into the distance, leaving several feathers floating in his place, becoming a potential choking hazard. Several minutes were spent explaining to him that he had to use his halo to move rather than his wings, and several more were burned trying to put the ensuing volley of questions to rest, even if temporarily. Only once he had worked out movement and fitted his pressure stabiliser over his beaked mask was he ready to leave.

The journey was relatively quiet, like the last time the squad ventured out into space, even if they traveled monumentally farther than before. Krista opted to stay away from Nathaniell to avoid talking to him. It didn't help when he sought her out, however.
"Wraith." He said, prodding her ribs with his cane. "What are these bright orbs moving by so fast?"
"Zose are stars." She replied bitterly, knocking his cane away. "Like ze night sky?"

"Impossible!" He barked, throwing his arms up in a wild gesture, almost swatting Krista over the head with his cane. "Everybody knows that stars are smaller, and not as brilliant as the sun and moon!"
"Zat is vhat ze stars are." Krista retorted, feeling her patience quickly dwindle. "Zey are suns, but far away."

Nathaniell stared motionlessly at Krista as if she had given him some kind of revelation.
"Whoever you are, Wraith, you speak utter nonsense."
Krista turned to face Nathaniell, flying on her side.
"My name is Krista, and you vould do vell to remember zat." She said, eager to change the topic. "Vhat is yours?"

"Did you not you hear me?" The Seer cried, despite how close he was to Krista. "I am Nathianiell!" He exclaimed, throwing his arms above his head once again.

The journey resumed its quiet atmosphere until the squad reached the gas giant, prompting another question from Nathaniell once they stopped.
"Krista." He said, poking her again with his cane, this time in the breast. "What is this marble-"

He was interrupted as Krista brought her hand up and snatched the cane from his hands, drawing it back to her opposite shoulder as if she were about to hit him with it. He immediately cowered away from her, wincing pathetically.

"It is a gas giant." She muttered in a voice almost threatening in its monotony. "Like ze planet Saturn. You know vhat zat is, don't you?"
"Mm-hmm." He whimpered, peering through the tattered feathers of his wings.
"Vell zis is ze kind of heavenly body zat Saturn is." Krista said in a calmer tone, satisfied with Nathaniell's display of submission. She tossed his cane back at him and he caught it with a hand outstretched from behind his wings.

Nathaniell was a lot quieter after that point, but this simply meant that when he demanded to know why the body the rest of the squad called the moon was so small, he merely spoke softly and asked people other than Krista. He stayed near the rear of the group, giving him the perfect position to violently shake Malus's shoulder at the sight of the cyborg that bore a striking resemblance to him. Only a stern glare from Krista kept him from speaking his mind on the matter, and he hobbled after his squad, staying low as they crept through the strange facility. As Sycal examined the door at the end of the hallway they came to, Nathaniell noticed Malus's whip seeking out some cords on the wall.

"Malus!" He shouted. "Your instrument of flagellation!"

Sycal was frozen in place as was the Regnant. They eyed each other for what seemed like minutes, with the other Regnants completely unaware of the situation, the two could only stare at each other at that point in time. That was, until...

"Malus! Your instrument of flagellation!"

As if on cue, Malus's whip rapidly latched all of its strings into the bundle of wires, its barbed tips cut into them and left them exposed, procuring sparks as multiple lights in the hallway, as well as the adjacent rooms, blacked out. The unaware Regnants, needless to say, were made fully, clearly aware by now that there were intruders as a pair of rotating neon-blue emergency lights lit up both ends of the hallway. Oddly, there was no alarm siren to be heard.

Sycal's free turn expires, Turn 1 begins normally with the enemy going first.

Turn 1:
Enemy turn

The Regnant viewing Sycal notices the light go dark and proceeds to loudly curse in his language, then takes a small pistol out from his terminal's drawer and fires it at Sycal, hitting her in the leg and leaving a scorched mark.
Total Damage : 1
Sycal: 4/5

The remaining Guards react to the weapon discharge by scrambling for their weapons and enabling the Turret Defences.
All guards and turrets are now ready.


Malus must spend a turn detaching his whip before he can attack. On detach, Malus gains the following;
Spoiler:
 

Aulair rushed in at the sound of the gunfire, taking his spear to impale the alerted guard. He then launched one of his grapplers onto another and proceeded to slam him into a wall, killing him.
Total damage: 4
Guard A: 0/2
Dropoff = 2 (+2)
Guard B: 0/2

Cosmac follows him out and shoots at the two turrets, who had just began to activate, with his kinetic shotgun. One completely detaches from the ceiling, but the other holds on from the blast, still active, but heavily sparking.
Total damage: 5
Turret A: 0/4
Turret B: 3/4

With the door completely open, Nathaniell notices one of the guards (Guard D) aiming his weapon directly at him.

The cyborg was the first thing that caught Malus' attention. Maybe the pressure of space travel was still affecting him, but he was getting downright sick of seeing all these things with the same form as him. First more angels, now the friggin' Regnants are starting to adopt it in their engineering. Is his deformity really becoming this stylish? He was so confused about the necessity of the design on the enemy mech that he barely heard Nathaniell call out for his attention.

"Malus! Your instrument of flage̸̦̞̮̼̩͙l̸̜̫̰̜͕̼ļ̷̥̜̜̪̻a̷͉͔̙͜͜ͅţ̷̸̸̶̵̸̴̴̸̩̹̖̯͙͎̥͖̮̤̭̼͜i̷̶̷̴̵̷̶̵̷̢̙̗̭͚̤̭̪͔̩̰̥̟̙o̵̷̶̷̶̴̴̷̸̧̞̠̟͉̻̖͓̹͔͖͎̲͙ ̵̷̷̵̴̷̶̶̷̨̢̣̠̤̭̞̼̮̻͎̱͜͜ ̴̸̴̸̵̶̴̸̴̭̳͔͓̯͖̺̹͕̪̝̝̘͜ ̷̸̶̸̸̶̸̶̸̢̢̝̩̣̟̹̼̖̯͎̞̪͙ ̷̴̷̸̸̸̷̷̶͓̩͓̳̥̙͈̫͍͈̫͈ͅͅ ̴̸̵̸̷̴̸̴̷̨̬͉̭̰͖͉̫̤̲̙̥̼̣ ̸̴̷̶̷̶̵̶̵̨̧͔̦̮̰͇͎͉̺̤͕̹͙


Malus's hearing became replaced with a deafening ringing as he quickly found himself being hit with most of the operation's power supply all at once. It was made apparent to him that his whip had decided that the overall stealthy approach the squad took was taking too long and instead decided to bring the party on over to them. After all, if the sudden loss of power hadn't alerted the enemy by now, Malus' screams probably did.

Fighting his muscle spasms, he managed to wrap one of hands around the tendrils of his weapon and allowed himself to fall in a desperate attempt to free himself from the wiring. As he hit the ground, the wires finally snapped from their sockets. The shock suddenly subsided to a strange tingling sensation in his spine. Malus gave a sigh of relief and picked himself up, his pelt sticking out unevenly as he moved. He looked at his weapon in distain, but then noticed it was still sparking as it wrapped around the torn wiring. Malus grinned. He may have missed the start of the battle, but the next thing that tries to hit him will get a nasty surprise.

Krista wheeled around at the sound of Nathaniell's voice ringing out through the silence they had maintained thus far, only to see Malus's whip grip a bundle of exposed wiring and send the entire base into a blackout — and then into a state of alarm.

I have to deal with two idiots, now. Krista thought grimly, as Malus writhed and screamed.

The sound of Regnant gunfire brought her back to the moment at hand and she turned back to the Regnants, alerting her to one that was aiming its weapon down the hallway at them. With a single, deft movement, she reached down to her belt and drew one of her pistols, the blue diode on the lowermost barrel glowing brightly. She brought it up and fired a ghostly, blue bullet at the Regnant, and while it flew true, it slightly corrected its own path and connected with the Hellspawn's chest.

There was no physical impact; the bullet seemed to disappear as it found its mark. Even the Regnant seemed confused by what happened, or rather, what didn't. After about a second passed, however, the effect came into play. A blue corona suddenly burst from within the Regnant, not affecting it physically, but what looked like a translucent projection of the creature was seen tearing away from the body, screaming, before it faded away. The ethereal explosion consumed the other Regnant and the turret, tearing another screaming projection from the former and a cube of static from the latter. When the burst faded, the Regnants were left drooling in place before they collapsed where they stood, and the turret went limp, a few small pieces falling from it.

Krista continued to hold her pistol out in front of her for a few seconds, taking in what had happened. When she finally relaxed, she raised it up to eye level, an eyebrow arched high.

"So zat is vhat zey do."

Silence dominated the room after Krista's attack. Nothing but the faint sounds of rattling vents and electrical sparks were audible at this time.

As Aulair rushed headlong through a set of doors without giving orders to the rest of the squad, Cosmac stayed behind, unsure if the Lieutenant wanted anyone to follow him. as the door shut behind Aulair, the team suddenly heard a metallic screech, followed by gunfire, and finally an explosion that sent Aulair crashing back through the doors he came from.

Two enemies attack Aulair for 2 damage each.
Total Damage = 4
Aulair: 3/7

"Dammit! They were right behind the other set of doors! Watch it!" Aulair cried as he clutched at his chest, stunned at how he'd been hit as his attackers marched in. The first two, the ones who'd shot at him, stormed in, guns charged up and ready to fire, however, the ones that lagged behind hadn't charged their weaponry yet.

Soldier A: 5/5
Soldier B: 5/5
Soldier C: 5/5 [unreadied]
Soldier D: 5/5 [unreadied]
Soldier E: 5/5 [unreadied]

As if this squad of soldiers wasn't enough, something came crashing down from one of the ceiling vents; a strange looking being with tendrils coming out of the back of its head, wielding an odd bow-shaped blade. The figure was clearly feminine, but was nothing like a Regnant, or any other Hellspawn species for that matter... This was something completely alien.

Mercenary A: 22/22
[[Aodha's 'Elturian Veteran' bonus is now active]]

The eel-like Mercenary proceeded to leap viciously at the injured Sycal, making a harsh slice on her arm before halting mid-attack to shoot a couple slug bullets at Krista; one of them missed, but the other met it's mark, and painfully lodged itself into her right bicep, missing her armband by few centimeters.

Total damage: 2,2
Sycal: 2/5
Krista: 3/5

Time seemed to slow for Malus; something wasn't feeling right about him. After a short period of staying still, he noticed a small, horned silhouette standing to his left, obscured by darkness. It began to whisper something, but Malus was too far away to hear, and for some reason, he seemed to be drawn toward it...
[Malus can choose to sacrifice this turn to examine the silhouette.]

Aulair and Cosmac seemed to wait for the rest of the squad to make their moves first.

Krista spat a curse in German as the bullets entered her arm, forcing her to drop the book she held in her left hand. It fell to the floor with a loud thunk and didn't bounce or slide. The metallic eyelid rolled up and the eye within looked about before locking onto Krista.

"Krista!" Nathaniell squawked, scurrying out of the hallway and into the room proper, cane drawn. He stopped by Krista's side, swinging his cane in the direction of the alien mercenary and the accompanying Regnants, even if completely ineffectively.
"Back!" He shouted at it. "Stay back, devils!"
As he swung, the halo wrapped tightly around his hat glowed softly, and a hexagon of white, translucent light, a foot in length, appeared in the air in front of Krista. Six more appeared, adjacent to all six sides in turn, then more appeared, spreading out in a spiral until they formed a guarding shield large enough to protect both Krista and Nathaniell.

Nathaniell guards himself and Krista
Nathaniell: 2/2, 2/2
Seer Leech: 4/8
Krista: 3/5, 2/2

Krista, having held onto her pistol, took aim at the mercenary and fired twice. The two glowing leech bullets connected with the alien mercenary, both sending bursts of little green orbs soaring back into Krista's gun barrel, and then into her body. The bullet holes in her arm disgorged the offending slugs, before starting to knit themselves back together.

Krista: 5/5, 2/2
2/4 LP
Cooldown: 2

Through the slight electricity-induced chills, Malus felt a presence to the side of him. Upon closer inspection, he noticed the shape of something familiar, causing his perception of reality to suddenly drop. Is this the same Man-Cow that appeared during his night-terrors? Is the damned necklace making him see things in real life? Is this still a dream he's forbidden from waking from? Why is his whip trying to force him away? Malus grabbed his weapon by the handle as it attempted to pull him in the opposite direction to the shadowed silhouette. He held it firmly, raised his shield out in front and began slowly approaching the figure, preparing himself for any sudden attempts of lashing out. Malus secretly hoped that he was simply misreading the shape of the shadows as a hidden enemy. Confrontation with an enemy is something he could handle. Confrontation with the unknown, however, wasn't something he was mentally capable of achieving without fault. Either way, he figured at least one of either party is going to end up in a lot of pain.

As Malus approached the figure, his whip tugging at him in the process, the colony's generators slammed, brightening the room once more, finally revealing the hidden figure. The figure was small, airborne and had metallic tendrils jutting out of its Regnant-tech helmet, and when he noticed Malus looking directly at him, the sound that resembled whispering grew to an electronic scream as it made a sudden, violent dash towards him, knocking him off-balance (and likely giving him quite a startle) before making a beeline for the Mercenary. As it collided with him, Malus noticed that he had just accidentally ripped out a piece of the bot's hull with his bare hands.

As the robot made its way to his master, it hovered towards one of the defunct turrets above her, grabbing onto it's hull with its tendrils, then sparking it to life.

Sycal began to wail loudly with pain, leaping backwards from the Mercenary, clutching at her burning wound. Began to ready her weapon, being sure not to topple over her own feet. Because of bleeding her injuries, she could barely hold herself up properly, let alone her heavy weapon. Nevertheless, she mustered up enough strength to aim the scope towards the Mercenary, only shortly after it had shot Krista. She was perplexed by the alien's form; she was slightly unsettled, but curious.


Sycal pondered how difficult it might be to take down, and especially with Malus being very preoccupied in the corner of her eye. She hastily decided that prioritising the smaller and weaker foes would be a better idea, so she attempted to reach cover behind a nearby container whilst having a crack at the Mercenary.

"Guys," she called out. "I might need a bit of help with this one."

Aodha watched the battle, somewhat confused on what to do. While he probably wouldn't admit it, he was far more at home fighting some, well, bigger.  The Regnants were almost a nonissue, but the alien was unfamiliar and as such, a danger. A drone that likely belonged to these "mercenaries" they heard about repaired a turret after being ripped apart by Malus and shot at by Sycal.

That gave Aodha an idea when Sycal asked for help.

"Help inbound!" he shouted as he charged the drone, withdrawing his polearm from the sheath on his back. The weapon extended to its full length, ending about at twice his height in length. When he passed the turret, he swung his arm up to prepare to stab the drone and catch the turret with the back facing blade, deactivating it again. He than stabbed down with as much force as he could at the drone, impaling it.

Sycal damages both the Merc and the Robot in her attack.
(Seeing as you've damaged the Robot for 1 damage)
Total damage: 2.
Mercenary A: 21/22

Cosmac was caught off guard by the sudden blast that caught Aulair. In what seemed like a split second, the Mercenary and her robotic companion had already made their moves, harming Sycal and repairing the ship's defenses. As Aodha destroyed the robot, along with the repaired turret, Cosmac reeled around to strike a couple of the soldiers, taking some hits as a result.

Cosmac sacrifices a health tag to deal 2 damage to Soldier B.
Total Damage: 4, 2
Cosmac: 8/9
Soldier A: 1/5
Soldier B: 3/5


Aulair had been mentally recovering from the blast, and forced himself upright, using his spear as a point of balance. He was stunned at the equipment these Regnants had been packing with them. These must be some extremely well-trained troops...

He barely had the time to think before he saw Cosmac attack the soldiers. He went for the weaker one, piercing through its skin as if it were meat for a kebab, before hurling the husk at the Mercenary, knocking her over. Aulair then proceeded to launch his grapplers at her. Although the Merc's armor saved her from some severe cuts, it also snagged onto the grapplers before she could wrestle free. As she struggled with them, Aulair took the oppurtunity to repeatedly slam her across the walls and ceiling, as if she were a ragdoll, only getting released after her powered armor finally gave up its hold on the hooks.

Total Damage: 4
Soldier A: 0/4
Dropoff Damage: 3 (+2)

Mercenary A: 16/22

-----
Turn 3
-----

The Regnant soldiers that had been shooting Aulair had shifted their focus to Cosmac. All of them had opened fire on him simultaneously, knocking him across the room, severely harming him as he sought for cover behind one of the computer terminals.

Soldiers B, C, and D attack Cosmac.
Total Damage: 6
Cosmac: 2/9

As the group attacked Cosmac, one of the soldiers barked at Soldier E, possibly telling him to get reinforcements. He stormed out of the room.

Soldier E escapes.

After he had been forced to take cover behind a terminal, they all set their sights in Nathaniell's direction.

The Mercenary was not amused at Aulair's attempts to knock her unconscious. Not one bit. She flipped a switch on her belt, brightening up a cylindrical pouch. Nathaniell recognized this to be a Smart Grenade, capable of hitting the entire squad without damaging her allies.
Upon flicking the switch, she lashed out at Aulair, sparring with him spear-to-blade. She had cut into his armor, but as it lodged itself in the angelic plate, Aulair kicked her back, but not before falling on the ground, unable to muster enough willpower get up.

She wasn't done fighting yet, however; she had another target in her sights; the goatman. She took out her pistols and fired them, and although Malus's head plate had deflected one of them, his arm's fur could not. This Merc really seemed to have a penchant for shooting the angels in the arm.

Mercenary A sacrifices a health tag to attack Malus.
Total Damage: 3, 2
Mercenary A: 15/22
Aulair: 0/4
Malus: 2/4

Enemy Status:
Mercenary A: 15/22
Soldier B: 3/5
Soldier C: 5/5
Soldier D: 5/5
Soldier E: [[escaped]]

Krista's bullet wound had knit itself closed by the time Cosmac was sent hurtling across the room and scurrying behind a console. Krista almost ran out to heal him, but Nathaniell gripped her arm and pointed at the blinking canister on the mercenary's hip.

"Krista!" he yelled into her ear, "What is that luminous machination?"

Krista looked up at the alien mercenary and spotted the glowing tool on her belt. Her eyes widened as she realised what it was, and what it could do.

"Grenade!" She bellowed, rapidly returning her pistols to her hips and, on their return trip upwards, throwing her hands apart while spitting several words in German. Two magic circles materialised in front of her, each as tall as the doorway she stood under, and spinning slowly. She cast out her right hand, and one of the circles darted over to where Cosmac crouched, stopping between him and the mercenary.

Krista guards herself and Cosmac

Krista 5/5, 2/2, 2/2
LP: 2/4
Cooldown: 1

Cosmac 2/9, 2/2

Nathaniell had no idea what a grenade was, but decided that he should ask later. And not Krista. He instead turned to look at where Krista's guarding disc had gone and spotted Cosmac. He had no idea what he was wearing, but he saw the damage done to it. He reached into one of the pockets on his jacket and drew out an ornate golden thurible, hanging on a thin chain. He lifted it above his head and began swinging it in a circle, causing a smoky, musky incense to cloud the air above him. His hat-band halo glowed softly, and the smoke rushed over to Cosmac as if guided by the wind. Whether or now he enjoyed the fragrance, it began to heal him.

Nathaniell heals Cosmac

Nathaniell 2/2, 2/2
Seer leech: 6/8

Cosmac 3/9, 2/2

{{RECAP OF R20 SESSION}}

The squad of angels had utterly crushed the Merc and her squad of Regnant soldiers, but the aim of the mission hadn't finished just yet. After taking the Merc, the squad was given access to the more important areas of the ship hangar. Hiding from within a darkened, lightless room, the group witnessed the Cyborg from earlier, as well as a floating, mechanical sarcophagus arguing over what happened earlier, ending with the sarcophagus a loud audio boom that startled the Cyborg and sent him running. As this floating machine turned to attend to its own business, Krista looked into its eyes and saw blue, gas-like flames exit the ornate face's eyelids.

The group is now looking for a ship to take to their target, the orbital station.

Station music you nerds https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trlhrKqoJAc&user=BOOST15673

As her squad scurried through the back passageways of the station, Krista marched by the rear, keeping a gun on the alien mercenary, and an eye on Nathaniell, should either decide to give their position away. She kept her spellbook tucked under her other arm. As the mercenary guided them through the facility, Krista would sometimes tear her gaze away to focus on the bizarre architecture of the place, only to quickly return it to the mercenary. She couldn't help looking, though; every other week it seemed she was seeing some new style of construction.

She thought back to her encounter with Seren, how she wanted nothing more than for her project to be protected from the Regnants — these Regnants. Krista had asked the merc if she personally knew anything about Seren's project, but she was useless in that regard; she made for a good combination hostage and tour guide in the meantime.

As she marched, Krista's mind wandered back to Seren, the so-called traitor who left Sentain to pursue a personal science project. Her display of disloyalty disgusted Krista, but it haunted her that it could have been her in Seren's place if circumstances had been slightly different. With so many potential projects nestled under her arm, and unsure of how many could harm her standing in Sentain, Krista saw something in Seren she rarely if ever saw in any Saintly or Sentain Angel: a kindred spirit.

There but for the grace of God goes I.

Krista wanted to secure this project for Seren and bring her back to Sentain. But as she continued to explore the station, she came to the realisation that she wasn't doing it as a selfless act on Seren's behalf. Whatever they were, Krista wanted to help Seren for her own reasons.

Nathaniell hobbled along through the station in front of Krista, completely engrossed in the alien they had taken captive. His inevitable flood of questions was, thankfully, spoken with an inside voice, courtesy of Krista. However a quiet flood is still a flood.

"Tell me, which continent do you hail from, foreign moon creature? Or do you come from the seas? Your skin, it possesses a marvellous sheen, you must allow me to collect a sample for research! Do your many eyes allow you to see better in the dark? What of your tail, does it grow back anew if removed? Argh! Do hold still while I transcribe your anatomy!"

Nathaniell gave the mercenary a brief respite as he dug through his coat pockets before procuring a filthy roll of parchment, which it seemed had already been used to record other information, and a black quill, which appeared to have been crafted from one of his own feathers. He began scratching notes onto the parchment, and then he attempted to sketch the alien's body while they were still walking through the station.

His questions resumed shortly thereafter, but as they came to a darkened room overlooking the cyborg and the floating sarcophagus, Krista shushed him and slowly approached the window. Its articulated manipulators assured Krista that whatever was inside, it wasn't without autonomy; the metal coffin was merely a protective shell, one that allowed its occupant to interface with its environment. But why...?

Perhaps it is some sort of pressurised container, Krista pondered, like these stabilisers we are wearing.

She noticed the eyes of the face on the coffin, and the flames pouring out of what looked like closed eyes.

Some sort of magic flame... The Regnants may have another angel amongst their ranks.
