Eileen was not at all pleased to hear the news of a KIA pilot, she flicked on her afterburners and flew towards the pickup point breaking the sound barrier. The natives shouldn't have had the tech to be able to bring down a pilot, this had to be something else and whatever they were... Eileen had a feeling this was just the beginning.

"securing the rendezvous point."

Eileen soared over a nice spot of grassland on the edge of the jungle, transforming mid-air and crashing into the ground in a classic superhero landing. She quickly turned on her short range scanner and looked around the immediate area. He sensors read nothing so she felt it safe to call in the pick up ship. Eileen patched herself through the to command cruiser.

"This is Eileen. Marking a location for pickup, be warned possible hostile still on the planet. Proceed with caution."

With the evac on its way Eileen fired a flare into the air and waited for the rest of the pilots. And by the time the others had trudged their way through the jungle, the evac ship would have landed at Eileen's location.




Jenny waited patiently as Azai topped up the fuel reserves of her mecha. Though Jenny couldn't help but gasp as she heard of the murdered pilot, she was happy her helmet covered her face or people would have seen the tears rolling down her cheeks. Sure Jenny hardly knew the person who'd died, but now that they'd passed Jenny would never be able to get to know them. It was a pain Jenny wasn't ready for, though Jenny knew that as a pilot death was one of the many risks. She just prayed that next time she'd be there to help protect her fellow pilots.

Jenny didn't get much time to sob as they needed to get to the evac point that had been designated by the senior pilot Eileen. It wasn't too far but the jungle would obviously make the trip more difficult.

Jenny obediently followed behind Azai and Kaselith until they reached the evac point, luckily the trio wasn't intercepted by the natives or the mystery assailant. Jenny let out a sigh of relief and climbed into the ship plonking her rear onto the floor with a loud clang. Yes, she wasn't being very professional at the moment but she wasn't really worried about that right now, she was more struggling not to cry.

"Azai, you wouldn't happen to know where our pick-up point is, would you?" Felix paused, flitting a bit too close for safety should the pilot be annoyed by her chesire-presense. "If not, I think it's best you follow us... towards the front so that the rest of the team can help if you run into any trouble."

At news of the death of the third pilot, and the need for immediate rendezous and pickup: Felix physically busied herself with clearing a path in order to shut her mind -her emotions- out. And yet she couldn't shake Azai's odd behavior, showing no prior sign of concern for the other members of her team... But maybe Onies were just like that, shutting out their emotions in order to stay professional.

From the corner of her eye she saw the pulsing glow of a plasma-bolt... and managed to duck out of the way as a five foot wide ball of blue superheated-air cleared a swath of trees ahead. Looking down this narrow avenue, she saw Cahreli had managed to test-fire her cannon in a somewhat-useful manner... although she did wish the spider would've warned her, only to remind herself of the little scuffle in the cafeteria... Both were a bit over-confident in the others' ability to dodge each other's shots and trade insults... but ever since they landed she seemed... quiet.

Kalida Evergreen




Now, only now did everything fall together. The enemy bunched up, in a highly volatile container too. They aren't escaping today... From a distance Stasis rises up, waits, and then... FUSHCHROOOM! A violent alpha attack extends from all the energy emitters, aimed straight at the engines of the escape vessel! The shot will surely disable it for long enough, long enough to kill every last excuse of a pilot 'fighting for good.' She'll kill every last one of those gremlin if they don't submit... The area denial drones are sent out, leading to tighten up the enemies further with small energy blasts, whilst Stasis flies around to avoid being hit. Kalida, oh Kalida enjoys this. She chuckles softly to herself, eyes scanning over the field. Some of the drones go to use their energy to light the forest on fire, smoke em out and shoot them.

Jenny remained curled up in her corner of the ship when the engines were hit. Jenny was almost flung from her seat, only saved by a quick reaction. Grabbing onto whatever she could Jenny quickly powered up her power armor, the shields flickering back to life as Jenny looked around to try and figure out what was going on. But before she could come up with any kind of theory the ship had crashed back into the thick jungle.

"I-Is everyone alright!?" Jenny groaned as she slowly got herself up. That when she noticed all the smoke that was getting into the ship, this wasn't good.




Eileen was patiently sitting in her mecha while she waited for the craft to get into orbit. But before that could happen the ship was hit by something Eileen was pretty sure it was by whatever it was that offed the pilot. Eileen girt her teeth as she braced herself and her mecha for the crash landing.

Eileen shook her head as she slowly leaned up in her cockpit, letting out a pained sigh before getting her mecha back on its feet. That's when she caught Jenny asking how people were doing. "I'm f-fine. I'm going to go find out who's responsible for this." Eileen fired up her after burners and leg blades,blasting her way through the top of the ship, hopefully her exit hole would help drain out some of the smoke.

Eileen took a quick scan of the area and found herself looking straight at some thing that she couldn't really find words for. It was some kind of winged, flesh monstrosity. But it didn't matter what it was, this thing was obviously what was responsible for the death of the pilot and the crash of the ship. "I see a target. I'm engaging." with a flash of flame from her thrusters Eileen closed the distance with the attacker and sent a rocket powered kick at the mid-section of the biomech.

A.L.M.A. Unit "Roxanne"

Alas, they had not escaped the scene without a fight. A false alarm had been raised by Cahreli's test-firing, something Roxanne intended to take her to task over once they had returned to the station, especially considering how close it had been to injuring one of the other operatives. This, unfortunately, left most in the ship not expecting a fight. Truthfully, Roxanne herself had been expecting to escape the planet unscathed, too; she was merely more capable of being prepared for the aftermath than the organics on board.

All said and done, once the transport capsule had finished crashing, nobody other than Eileen was in the best condition to handle continued operations. Or rather, they had yet to respond in sufficient manner to preserve their own lives. The transport ship's systems weren't critical, yet, but the engines were burning. An explosion risk, potentially harmful to pilots if they remained.

'All agents evacuate the transport capsule,' she proclaimed, not so much yelling as stating much more forcefully than usual. Naturally, this came shortly after Eileen's announcement, and right before she broke a hole in the transport's side. Roxanne followed on after her, performing her own scans and ultimately spying the rogue mech. It was, of course, evident that this mech was the rogue, as it was not only undocumented, but of highly non-standard design.

And it had released drones. These would likely prove to amplify the rogue mech's threat, if left unchecked. Thus, whilst Eileen engaged the rogue mech proper, Roxanne hovered away from the crashed transport, orienting her mech to face one of the drones - and then, after some modest calculations, unleashing a flurry of plasma bolts from the four smaller emitters on its torso, the intent to force the drone to move in a certain pattern, that could then be taken advantage of to guarantee damage and probable destruction. And if successful, the process would be repeated with each subsequent drone, at least as long as Roxanne remained uninterrupted.

Upon realizing they were going-down, Felix quickly took stock of the situation, kicked-out the door --and with a surprisingly great amount of ease for such a tiny powered-armor-- started pushing Luna, Maria and Lilliana out; knowing that they could fly/hover on their own and she could not afford to let anyone get trapped in the shock-absorbing wreckage that didn't have to be. She wasn't sure about Kaselith and her mech, and Azai was much too tired and exhausted to be counted-on in a fight.

She too had to disembark, although not fast as Eileen, she made up for this by taking time to try and make the best of her surroundings. Using grappling-lines, she snagged a pair of downed-trees and slingshot them and herself at the offending mecha that presented itself, brandishing the tree-trunks like hilariously oversized nunchuks that easily dwarfed her armor, which she flung furiously at Kaladia's mech, Stasis; replacing them with fresh tree trunks nearl as fast as her plasma-tentacles could obliterate them.

Just as the shuttle crashed, she heard Roxanne over the radio urging the others to get out of the wreck and prepare to defend themselves. To which she realized something: their comms were not being jammed.

She opened a line of comms with the ship with her chin: "Felix here. Request immediate kinetic orbital strike. Six Rods. Fire for effect on my position. Roxanne, expidite this request. Oh, and requesting all the graduates to provides immediate reinforcements," She then fumed quietly to herself, "But if that flounder finds out I'm asking for her help, I'm never going to live this down..."

It was a risk, but a calculated one. She knew from the execution-style death of the previous pilot that their foe liked to 'play' with her prey, it also helped that her own mecha was not only smaller than Stasis, but probable hit location of any of those orbital strikes was likely to hit and impale the larger of the two.

She just had to get Stasis to hold still and say "Aaaaaaaa!"
