    Smoke and flames licked at the sky as the alien attackers began laying waste to the peoples of Ceres. Bolts of plasma flew overhead, as Dorian hunkered down behind a derelict APC. As a break in the firing showed, Dorian quickly popped up from his cover and sprayed the area with .45mm rounds. The sounds of hissing and screeching as the rounds found purchase in the insectoids chitinous hides before ducking back behind cover.
    //All units, pull back to the outskirts. We're abandoning the city// His Commanders voice barked over an open com signal breaking protocol. Several more bolts shot overhead as he cursed to himself. Turning to his fallen comrade, that laid dead, the composite armor around his neck completely melted, frying the flesh and arteries, grabbing what ammo he could before making a hasty retreat. What had started as a boring day soon became a nightmare. "You heard the bastard, get moving!" Dorian barked at the remnants of his squad, many of them seeing combat for the first time outside the sims.

    Dante was running. He'd been in fights before, but with these things it was different. His post had been destroyed, along with everyone else. He heard shots go off in the distance. Dante started running faster.

    (Good nuff?)

    Switching his Martyr Maker with his Grosse Messer, Dorian led the charge into a group of invaders. The highly trained militants giving covering fire to their Captain as he charged in, thirsty for the blood of those that killed his brothers in arms. His battle cry was savage as he cleaved through the first ET that came into reach. Using his forward momentum, Dorian proceeded to decapitate the next one while others fell to a barrage of gunfire, none of them slowing down as they continued their retreat, rallied by their blood crazed friend and officer.

    Dante saw the badassery and decided to join them, pulling out his S80s. He opened fire on a few stragglers as he approached. He ran and dived behind cover.

    Paying no mind to the newcomer, the squad continued to push forward, making their way down the street. Corpses littered the ground, both alien and Cerean, as Dorian led them to a garage to take cover and reload. Taking notice of the newcomer, he gave him a quick look over seeing the D.F. Sec. "Glad to see another friendly Officer."

    (Phone can't see spoilers.)

    "Nothings glad." He nodded outside. "And now you've got me." He cocked back his pistol and clicked it into full auto.

    "We'll take what we can get bub." Dorian replied slapping a new magazine into his Type-87. "Stick with us, and we'll get you out alive." He added pulling out a holomap of the city, quickly zooming in on their location. "Alright, so we're here, Tungsten Boulevard." He said marking the garage with a red blip. "There's a Militia motorpool here, south east of us, about a three klicks." He point out, marking the destination with a blue marker.

    Dante didn't answer. He kept his head up, listening, his heightened hearing picking up noises outside.

    "There should be a couple prototype Black Moth AT-ARV's." He said accessing a classified file bringing up a image of the said vehicle.

    "Hm...heavy armor would definitely help, but how well does it defend against plasma?"

    "The hell should I know? I'm no mechanic. I just shoot the bad guys and save the day." Dorian replied snidely. "We Requisition them, and hightail it out of here to the rendezvous with the other survivors and form some sort of counter attack." He added zooming in on the weapon. "The turret is a miniature Full Auto Mass Driver. Practically Every guys wet dream for a gun. The thing fires 15mm tungsten rods at hyper velocities. In other words, It shoots through the target, his best friend, the school behind them, all the students in it path, and so on until it finally stops."

    "The weapon is badass, but without the vehicle, its pointless. Either way, let's go get one. It won't be long before they cb this area." He could hear the alien chittering getting closer

    "Right. Dunbar, leave them a little surprise" Dorian said slipping the holomap back into one of his pouches, as an ark born began digging in his pack, only for a moment later produce a couple bricks of C4 plastic explosive.

    "This do Cap?" he asked as he began wiring the charges.

    "Perfect. Give it a timed charge for say, 45 seconds? Sound good?" Dorian replied to the demo man as he and the others got ready to take off like bats out of hell.
