Okay, so, my apologies for taking three ish months to finish up the half. I started college and only recently got enough time to work on it. But, it's done now. So behold, the epilogue!


Phineas spent the rest of the war acting as a pilot for ground attack fighters, his massive and well armored frame providing him protection from the small arms of ground troops.  Due to his impressive number of combat missions, Phineas was also often shot down in his fighter, earning him a moniker: "The Falling Anvil"... never said to his face, of course. Despite his propensity for crashing planes, Phineas was promoted up the ranks of the Air Force, eventually becoming one of the ace pilots who helped hold back Hitler's mech during the Battle of the Bulge.  While he ended up being shot down yet again during that battle, the Falling Anvil managed to bail out and fight on inside one of the left legs of the mech, reinforcing a weakened british unit already engaged inside.
 
After the war, Phineas took up mercenary work with Groo, playing all sides of the field by accepting contracts from the US, her allies, and the new Soviet Union.  While Phineas generally seemed to be nothing but an apolitical mercenary willing to kill anyone for a buck, there was talk in many intelligence circles of him being well connected with an influential daemon's rights group, taking a disproportionate number of contracts which served their goals.  These rumors were never substantiated one way or another before he retired from the mercenary world in the traditional way—having his old friend Wallscilla fake his death, in exchange for information on the Soviet beast bomb programs.  Phineas, under an assumed name and with a false moustache painted onto his massive exo suit, ended up with a job as designer for military aircraft.  While his designs were rejected as being too unwieldy in a dogfight, they were later adapted into a jet powered ground attack aircraft with a daemon integrated targeting system, ironically dubbed "The Anvil" in his old persona's honor.





The McWehrneciguls' progeny quickly managed to make a name for themselves.  During the war many of the McWehrneciguls were drafted into the daemon research industry; in particular, Damien, the eldest surviving brother, became an apprentice of the daemon spook he worked under while a mercenary.  In time, Damien was made a full spook by the OSS, later to be renamed the CIA.  Near the end of the war, most of the brothers were part of the assault on Mecha Hitler during the battle of the bulge.  While many fell in battle, their efforts were vital to help hold the mech still while ground troops swarmed into it.  Damien himself was one of the few brothers who was instead assigned to the pacific front, learning the tools of the trade from the daemon spook as they helped survey possible city hopping sites.  Damien was also there on the day the BED Bomb dropped, a single biological ball made of beast meat and daemon metal which ended up completely absorbing the city of Nagasaki before erupting in a massive fireball visible from the distant island farms that surrounded it.

After the war, the remaining members of the McWehrnecigul family became vocal advocates for human-daemon relationships, several becoming politicians who worked for peaceful integration, though others took on a more militant approach. This schism soon split the family itself and soured relationships between the brothers. However, after nearly a decade of infighting and arguing, the McWehrneciguls succeeded in beginning the process of integration of humans and daemons. Damien himself was noted for extensive research in human and daemon interactions, and was instrumental in the creation of the so-called sonic paths, psuedo portals that allowed humans to explore the daemons' home and vice versa. It was this discovery that was considered a turning point in human daemon relationships.



Groo, after rushing Rufferto to the hospital and waiting many agonizing hours for the news on his dog, was happy to be informed that Rufferto was stable. Once assured that his beloved dog was happy and healthy, Groo threw himself back into the war effort.

During the War, Groo become noted for three things: His seemingly indestructible nature (he was declared dead so often that he was eventually just permanently listed as MIA to save on bookkeeping time), his marksmanship (one particularly well-known rumor claimed he had won an artillery duel by killing the artillerymen with his sniper rifle), and how he was homicidally protective of his dog.  One story goes that Groo, having hidden in the brush after being injured and disarmed of everything save for his derringer, brazenly attacked a Nazi patrol after seeing the commanding officer take a shot at Rufferto.  Supposedly he shrugged off multiple shots to the chest from the officer's luger before stealing a daemon knife and using it to butcher the entire patrol.  Groo was never actually recognized for any of these acts though, as far too frequently there were too few survivors on either side for any tangible reports to filter back to base. Plus there were all those nasty rumors about where he got his dog treats.

After the war, Groo found employment as a mercenary, fighting for the highest bidder regardless of side.  As his wealth and fame as a marksman grew Groo began to change, always buying the latest beast mods available from his old friend the Wall.  Groo became a walking and semi-talking biological tank, little more than a ball of hardened flesh and bone, bristling with weaponry and wielding an Auto cannon in two long tentacles that replaced his hands, with even more weaponry of various sorts stored within his cavernous interior.



Wallscilla decided to settle down when the rest of their group went off gallivanting through the sky. Realizing that there was far more and furthermore, far safer money to be made by providing augments to those who wanted it, Wallscilla established a thriving beast mod practice during the war. Their practice did some contract work for the government, of course, providing mass produced augments for the standard GI, while simultaneously making a name for themselves as being very skilled in providing custom jobs for any spooks and mercenaries willing to pay.  Groo regularly visited between his mercenary jobs with Phineus, and his increasingly inhuman form was a familiar sight around the airports of Chicago. Wallscilla’s economic success was to them finally completed when they got around to buying out the sandwich shop they frequented back in their mission days.

Despite the success of the business and the sandwich shop, Wallscilla was bored by the job eventually.  Having spent many years honing their skills in both the crafting of beasts and augments and the use of them, Wallscilla was able to easily join the new CIA’s beast department as an active spook.  Once in the CIA, Wallscilla would soon rise to the top of their field as both a designer of augments and an excellent field tester, having transformed their own body into a platform designed for testing their own augments.  By the end of their life, they had created multiple functional clones in order to continue development on the BED BUG, a massive new defense system created to thwart the soviet BED bombs.

Mid-word seems like a perfect time to end the game forever. ;P
I'll just imagine that a WALLCILLA clone killed the writer as he was writing in order to protect the secret.

Also this means that I've gotten a Xan victory.
