Dimitri brought the Rod down, but when he hit Lillian, she was surprised at how little force was behind it, and then he crumpled into her, smoke rising from his back.

Axl Blyant stood in the doorway with a smoking gun in hand. Lillian started to sit up and say something grateful, but as she did she put her broken arm down, using it like she would at any time. It folded as she pressed up, and her cry of jubilation turned to a scream of agony. Axl took one look at the charnel house, swept through quickly and gathered all the weapons from the corpses, putting them into Chase's big Industrial duffle bag. Then he wordlessly helped Lillian up, wrapping her broken arm around his neck and lifting by her shoulder with his.

Lillian leaned against the support gratefully, trying not to cry out when she was jostled or they bumped a wall in the dark. Quickly, Axl found a maintenance door and led them into the main halls of the station. He continued to half-carry her down the hall, and they started passing more and more signs of violence.

The duo rounded a corner to come face to face with three crewmen covered in blood, standing around what appeared to be the corpse of someone who was once a Chief Engineer. They turned as Axl and Lillian came around the corner. There was a tense moment of expectant silence, then Axl and Lillian opened fire.

There was no mercy or question of fire mode. Just a flurry of laser fire and the thumps and thuds of falling bodies.

The two Security team members got to the Medbay, to find a gruesome scene. Shell casings littered the lobby, and the doors had been blasted open. A few bodies lay scattered around, including a nurse slumped at the Receptionist's desk. Inside the blasted doors was a trail of blood leading to the injured Forensic Tech, now very nearly dead. Several bodies lay before him, and his hand was death-gripped on an emptied .45 automatic handgun. It kept clicking as he convulsively pulled the trigger, but the slide remained locked open on nothing.

Axl leaned Lillian against a wall, and moved to the Tech's aid. "No... No, I'm done boss. Get the fuck out of here." He paused to cough up the obligatory spatter of blood. "They've got the Captain. Brandon is nowhere to be found. Just get out of here..." His gaze slowly grew more glassy, and he deliberately leaned, falling onto his side.

Lillian watched Axl as he coldly patted the Tech down for weapons or ammo, then turned to pick Lillian back up. She said, "That's it...? You're not gonna... Say something?"

He shook his head. "Not right now. Guy's dead. I'll get back to him after every last one of them is dead." He casually lifted her back up, and they moved into Medbay. He injected her with pain medication and then splinted the bone. They both started moving to the Escape wing. As they neared the doors, the middle door hissed open and a fit man in the uniform of a Geneticist stepped through, followed by a pair of Cargo Technicians.  They all carried guns and wore body armor.

Behind Axl and Lillian, an Unathi stepped out of a side corridor, an energy gun in it's black-scaled hand. "You are surrounded." The Geneticist said. "Just step inside escape and we'll all talk. The Captain is there."

They were escorted inside, where the Captain was bound and buckled in a chair in the middle of the room. The other chairs had been scooted back to make room, like some sort of event was going on. Captain Kert Johnson was divested of most of the trappings of rank, and was covered in his own blood. He'd been beaten near to death, and was currently wheezing bloodily.

Marcus Junius Brutus, the Geneticist, motioned for Lillian and Axl to stand next to the Captain as three scientists came into the room from the Vault wing, taser-revolvers at their waists, and joined the gathered revolutionaries.

Lillian looked down the barrel of multiple guns, wondering how long before they just shot the three of them and got it over with. Beside her, Axl shifted, moving his coat subtly. He addressed Marcus as he pulled something slowly and carefully out of a pocket. "Marcus, this is your one warning. All crew are to surrender to my custody or face the threat of lethal force."

Marcus laughed, pointing his laser at Captain Johnson's head. "Who is going to shoot me? You? You're covered by half a crew of guns, outnumbered, with no cover. No options." He fired a single shot, and Captain Johnson slumped lifelessly. It punctuated his speech more than any words could.

Axl brought the item to his head with one hand, and slipped on...

Earmuffs.

Inside his other pocket, his free hand dropped the spoon from a primed Flashbang, and he tossed it directly at Marcus. It exploded forcefully about halfway to it's intended target, a supernova bright flare of harsh white light and an ear shattering BANG that conspired to absolutely devastate human sensory perception. Lillian and several of the revolutionaries were protected from the worst of the flash by their sunglasses, but only Axl had partial protection from both the sound and the light. He dived forward, slinging the industrial duffle full of guns open and scattering them all across the floor while he snatched his pistol free.

Axl came up out of his roll as Lillian and the others had just started to draw their guns, his aim unimpeded and unhurried, but swift and precise. His first shot drilled into a scientist's eye, searing his brain. The second shot took a Cargo Technician in the throat and dropped him like a sack of grain.

Lillian fired a second later, as did two of the enemy. Lillian tracked four shots up the torso of the second Cargo Technician, then turned to fire on a scientist as he shifted his aim to her. His shot took her in the shoulder, a lightning bolt-like arc of electricity blasting her wounded arm's shoulder and causing her to nearly black out in pain. Her shot flash-fried the top of his head off.

Axl was moving forwards as the three remaining enemy's returned fire. The Unathi was charging forwards, toward Lillian, firing blindly, while Marcus was bellowing something and taking aim at Axl. His shots and the shots of the final scientist finally succeeded in finding Axl's flesh. The stunvolver blast was mostly absorbed by the armorweave in Axl's clothing, but the deadly laser Marcus had fired drilled a hole right though it and into Axl's gut. Axl fired one shot as he ran, and it missed as Marcus dove for cover behind a chair. He dropped the gun and brought out his telescopic baton as he came into proximity to the enemy.

His step hadn't faltered with the laser shot, and as Marcus rose and the scientist brought his aim around, Axl moved in. He brought the baton around high, then swept low, catching the scientist in the side of the knee with a hideous crack. The man started to fall back and to the side, and Axl followed through. His baton rose up the opposite direction, then came back in a figure eight movement, catching the man on the back of the neck as he fell. There was a muted pop, and the man never moved again.

Lillian, meanwhile, emptied her two remaining shots into the Unathi's chest, but it bullrushed into her, knocking her down and bringing the combat back to melee. Lillian tried to plant one foot on it's chest as she fell, and pulled on it's shoulders, lifting it up onto her foot, then throwing it over her as she rolled on her back. The surprised Reptilian found itself scattering an assortment of chairs in a very painful and undignified crash.

As the Unathi scrambled to it's feet, Lillian took a more direct route. She grabbed a gun from the ground while still lying on her back, and emptied it's clip into the top of the Unathi's head as it tried to rise. This time it did not shrug off the laserfire. She turned to see Axl and Marcus in combat.

Well, sort of.

Axl dodged a jab from Marcus, then swept to one side under a right hook. As Axl came back up and around, Marcus threw the first jab again, but with weaker leverage, his body moving forwards and not prepared. Axl leaned back ever so slightly, and the blow stopped naturally due to lack of reach, right in front of his face.

Axl's counter swing brought the baton up under Marcus's ribs on the left side, shattering two into deadly bone shards. Marcus made a chuffing noise, and started to fold around the blow, but Axl was still moving. He brought the baton back and across Marcus's jawline with an audible crack. Marcus fell, blood running from his face.

Axl stood panting as Lillian pulled herself to her feet with the help of a nearby chair. Lillian was in agony from the taser blast, her broken arm, and numerous minor injuries from the scuffle, but she still had the strength to say, "You have GOT to teach me how to do that..."

By the way, something that would help me with this is if you all gave me physical and personality descriptions of your characters, and what job you 'see' them as. Lillian has ALWAYS been Head of Security Helsbrecht in my mind, and Zackary will ALWAYS be Captain Zackary Fryer.

Brandon Flickenger here, even though I'm in the story already I would just like to say he isnt very bureaucratic at all. That Egun in the HOP locker has saved many a life.

Malachi Kelly is about 6' 3'', ripped and tannned. I'd be anything really, as you know, but usually some kind of security, medical, or engineering position. Or the botanist. About 40 years old, stands up against anyone going against him, hates people who abuse power with a passion, and is very down to earth.

Love everything about your story so far, you make people dancing around shooting each other sound interesting.

Yes, you CAN request to be in the story. It would be silly as hell to write JUST about myself. o.O It's a multiplayer game. It would be boring as shit with just me running around fighting mobs.

I reserve the right to abuse your characters in any fashion I see fit. This means I get the final decision on your personality, biography, and physical description. :P You're just providing me with extremely valuable input. Also, this story might get pretty graphic. I'm being realistic, whereas in-game we have some pretty strenuous rules about some things that keep things family friendly. Any posts that might offend someone or bring up bad memories or something will be appropriately marked.

I will post an update today around 330pm. It is currently 11am in my timezone at the time of this post.

Okay so I lied. >.> I'll have some in the morning. Real life intervened in my plans. I'm excited to start the next 'chapter'. It's going to be a lot more subtle, with less Action Girl Badass Normal and more Murder Mystery/Horror.

All I can hope for is the torture session that me (Lily Caukwell) and Hans got up to. One of my favourite Hans moments.

We actually managed to get several cultists, there. And one randomer who had bad luck. It was even better when Hans was spaced without a suit or oxygen and came back even more pissed off.
