Surely unknown to the ex-covenant forces who were currently part of Aegis Team, Spartan Aviza had been educated in some areas of Sangheili culture. This of course included how they were quite hesitant to receive any form of outside healing, less they have their honor insulted. The request for the anesthetics came as surprise, regardless though she was happy to comply with Yalu. While still walking down the hallway towards their next objective, she reached into her medical pack and produced a few metal canisters before handing them over to the Sangheili. "These contain an extremely potent anesthetic, they will dull the pain but the injury will obviously still remain and will need to be treated by a medical professional as myself." Once the cannisters had been taken, Aviza would then turn her attention back to the matter at hand, locating the Rebel Base Commander.

Within Celestian Andromedai's helmet, her HUD was informing her of her retinues current state, thankfully only a few of them had been injured, while Stukov had unfortunately taken the brunt of the Tzeentch Chaos spawns opening assault. She considered this a blessing is disguise due to the fact of how powerful these Chaos Spawns could be, and the fact that this massive hulking beast could only use that attack a set number of times before it would become much weaker. Regardless of this, she did not want anyone under her command being severely wounded or even dying while they still had their missions to complete. Reloading her Adrastus Bolt Caliver, Andromedai was prepping another hail of highly explosive rounds to be fired upon the Chaos Spawn when she saw Stukov raise his chainsword and being to charge forward towards their enemy, throwing all caution and sense of wellbeing to the wind, a trait that she knew was all to familiar with Guardsmen. "Stukov, as Adrianne said, I do not want you to fulfill your duty to the emperor just yet!" said Andromedai over the chaotic sounds of the battle and the almost deafening roars of rage that filled the chamber.

Glancing over her right shoulder, she witnessed Adrianne toss a Krak Grenade at Medaira, it conveniently landed upon her lap and thankfully did not explode. If Stukov was attempting to fulfill his duty to the emperor by charging into the melee range of the Chaos Spawn, and Medaira now had explosives, there was a good chance their Guardsmen would do just that. The idea then dawned upon her, she could have Adrianne teleport Stukov back to where she was before he received any mortal injury, though this would have to be done quickly. Opening up her coms, she spoke privately to Adrianne, "Adrianne, I need you to teleport Stukov away from the Chaos Spawn and to your position before any explosives go off, for we both know that if one does, that will most likely result in Stukov ending up by the Emperors side." Though, before any action could be taken by the Psyker, the sound weapon used by Medaira's servo-skull caused even the fully armored Celestian of Battle to flinch. The Krak Grenades had also been tossed, adding much more to the situation at hand.

With a single though on what may happen, Andromedai sprinted forward and grabbed onto Stukov, putting herself between the Chaos Spawn, the explosives, and the Guardsmen. She was aware of the fact that the Krak grenades could quite possibly severely injure her, leaving her a prime target for the Chaos Spawn, but it was a risk she was willing to take. When the explosion did go off, it knocked both her, and the Stukov she was holding onto across the floor. Her armors HUD was now informing her that a good portion of her shield had been used and burn marks now appeared across it. "I am going to kill Medaira myself after this." Thought Celestian Andromedai to herself, knowing she would not do such a thing but a very stern talk would have to be had. Now quite sore from all she had endured that day, she helped pull Stukov to his feet just in time to turn around and notice the damage that had been inflicted upon the Chaos spawn. Part of its body had been burned and melted away, but the demon spawn kept fighting. Now, it lowered its body once more, and prepped to fire off another hail of razor sharp quills into the retinue. Grabbing onto Stukov just in case he had trouble moving, she began to pull him in the direction of the nearest cover when the quills fired.

"Everyone into cover now!" yelled Andromedai, as the quills flew towards them. She braced herself to at least take some hits from the quills but instead, the air around them fell silent, and still. Moving quickly into cover, Andromedai remained there for a few short seconds, waiting for the quills to fly past or for something to at least happen, but nothing did. Looking around the corner where she and the Guardsmen had taken cover, what she saw confused and surprised her, something not easy to do to a Celestian. The quills had stopped in mid flight, and were held suspended in the air by unknown means. At first, she assumed that Adrianne was to thank for this show of great power, but then noticed that they had a new arrival standing before them. Someone dressed in the same Celestian armor as her, though with black and white colors, stood in the middle of the room, holding both of her hands out. Swirling lights of dark crimson red emitted from them, and with one swipe of the woman's left hand, the quills flew back at the Chaos spawn and struck it with tremendous force. It wailed in pain as the chamber returned to normal, though the Chaos Spawn was not finished with the retinue and this new comer. Instead of retreating, it now opened its many maws and lunged directly at the mysterious figure. With her right hand, she would wave it quickly in front of her in an arching motion, though now instead of a crimson light, a violet light would appear around the Chaos Spawn before a horrific sound would be heard. Half of the Chaos Spawns body fell to the ground, the other missing completely from reality. If one had looked closely enough, they would have seen her open a portal of sorts over half of the Chaos Spawns body before closing it, cutting it clean in half down the middle of its body.

For a few, very short seconds, the creature lived and tried its best to crawl across the floor before vanishing in a bright blue flash of light that filled the room. The female figure that stood in the middle of the chamber kept her back turned to the retinue for the moment, merely tilting her head to the left and looking forward as if waiting for the Chaos Spawn to return, or something else to leave from the chamber in front of them where the Chaos forces had spawned from. Nothing happened, and then the figure turned around, to finally face the retinue. She would offer a slight wave before noticing her gauntlets had been horribly burned, to the point of where the ends of the fingers had begun glowing red. Quickly, she carefully tossed them free from her body and inspected her hands to ensure they were still in working condition, thankfully they remained unharmed. "I do enjoy getting out into the field of battle every once in a while, it is never a boring day around you is it Celestian Andromedai Morgenstern?" asked the figure, her voice smooth, calming, and oddly relaxed. Celestian Andromedai was slow to respond, but stepped forward towards the woman who wore armor like her own, though the coloring was different. "You have oddly, or should I say conveniently good timing, Maya." The two of them stood silent for a moment before the one Andromedai called Maya quickly pulled Andromedai into an awkward hug, before making a line towards Stukov.

Once she arrived, Maya would reach up to her helmet and grab onto it, for a moment she seemed as if she was going to remove it but then suddenly thought better of the action and let her arms return to her side. "I am going to need you to cooperate with me here Guardsmen, all I ask is that you hold as still as you can while I tend to your injuries. It is in the best of your interest to look away while I do so, alright?" Maya did not wait for a reply, she merely reached for Stukovs injured hand. With her left, she gently took the injured hand in her own, while with her right, something like white light flowed from it, surrounded in a what appeared to be a form of smoke. The quill would be quickly removed, and the wound healed, all while Stukov would feel nothing more than a comforting warmth in the effected area. "Your other injuries are what concern me, they could prove to be life threatening. I can stabilize them for the moment being, but more delicate medical attention will be needed back upon Andromedai's ship." Once more, without asking, the quills would be removed and the area healed to the point as if nothing had happened, though Maya did not comment on this. Like before, he would only feel the comforting warmth, and nothing else. Once the quills had been removed, Maya gave a swift look over the other members of the retinue before walking back up the stairs and out of the chamber, making one comment as she did, "I'll be on the ship, none of you get impaled in my absence."

Celestian Andromedai had remained calm and collected, merely observing the woman as she carried out whatever she wanted before leaving as quickly as she had appeared. "I know there are questions but, it is best not to ask at the moment, I think it would be better to show you all once we return to the Inquisitorial safe house. That is all I can say at the moment, let's head into the chamber where these beasts came from." She knew this was most likely not what they wanted to hear, but it was all she could offer at the moment without causing unwanted drama. So, for the time being, she stepped forward and into the chamber where the Chaos forces had appeared from, as if nothing out of the ordinary had happened. Within this chamber, Andromedai noticed that it had been set up somewhat like the Planetary governors office, this made her greatly suspicious but she also knew that the Tzeentch forces could have done this to try and confuse them.
What did stand out was some sort of dark tome that gave off a sister vibe, and a black golden mist with tendrils of dark violet light intertwined within. "Adrainne, do you have any idea what this book, or tome could be?" inquired Celestian Andromedai as she approached it with the knowledge that anything horrific could happen if she touched it. At first, she reached for it, then with her better judgement, drew her hand back and glanced backward towards Adrianne, who would most likely be able to transport it for them safely. "Would you mind picking this up for me and protecting it till we arrive back at the ship? I believe you should be able to handle it without any issues, if my assumptions are correct." Celestian Andromedai motioned with her right hand towards Adrianne, hoping she had some way to safely move it, and do so away from eyes that wished to see it.

Listening closely and intently to Shih as she briefed them on their current situation at hand, Spartan Aivza was already strategizing and plotting their next course of action. Rex still needed to be stabilized for medical evacuation and she was going to ensure that this happened before they moved out again. Moving to her fellow Spartan who was injured, she took a knee and held her right hand over his torso where the Brute had managed to make contact with his armor. Sensors indicated that he had received severe injuries, internal bleeding, broken ribs, and fragments of bones threatening to puncture his lungs if there was to much movement. Her suits systems informed her that their best option was to be medically evacuated as soon as possible, and that Rex's suit of armor had already stabilized him.

"Rex, I will not lie to you, the strike from the Brute Chieftain inflicted severe damage upon not only your armor but also your body." began Aviza as she moved to her feet once more. "It would be extremely unwise to move you at this time, even more so to have you try and attempt to assist us further. For now, you must relax and refrain from moving until we return. My advice is for you to engage your active camouflage and remain hidden untill we have finished with our mission here. Aviza would then send a private message to Shih, "I want you to send a message to the Chorus of Thunder and inform them that we have injured and will need a fully detailed medical team on standby once our mission here is finished. Secondly, please forward the most logical path to take next to everyone's HUD, along with any other information you believe should be shared with the squad." Aviza would hold her position, waiting for the path to appear before her, once it did, she would quickly head off in the direction it lead. One last message would be sent to Rex before she departed, "Keep us updated on your situation Rex, if you need help, I will send a team back to you."

The first thought that ran through Aviza's mind as soon as she witnessed Spartan Rex receive the devastating blow from the Brute Chieftains Gravity hammer was immediate medical attention for what was most likely a life threatening injury. She knew this could not be done in their current situation, given the circumstances and the obvious threat that was still prevalent. With very few options available at the moment, Aviza sprinted forward towards her fallen Spartan, only coming to a stop when she arrived by his side. "Shih, I need a full scan of Spartan Rex, or as detailed as you can give. Once that is done, I want you to send a message to the Chorus of Thunder and inform them that we have injured and will need a fully detailed medical team on standby once our mission here is finished."

For the moment, Aviza's Argus armor was informing her that she still had a few more seconds before she had to actually face the Brute Chieftain in combat, but a few seconds was all she needed to at least attempt to stabilize Spartan Rex. Quickly reaching onto the advanced medical kit she kept on herself at all times, Aviza produced a biofoam dispenser and was about to place it back inside of the medical case when she witnessed the Chieftain slam his hammer down at the feet of Tar, thankfully no energy wave was dispensed. With some quick thinking, she tossed the biofoam canister at the Brute Chieftains head and then rapid fired the underslung shotgun upon her MA5D Assault Rifle untill the eight round clip ran dry and had to be replaced.

If this did not severely injure the Brute Cheiftan, they would be in serious trouble. Thankfully though, Aviza found an opportunity to assist Tar, and grabbed onto the back of her armor, pulling her back and away from the Brute and helping her onto her feet before once more turning to face the Brute Chieftain.

As soon as the first of the five Horrors of Tzeentch had been cut in half by Celestian Andromedai's Phase Sword, the others seemed to immediately adapt. A carapace formed upon them and they moved more rapidly upon the ground, a clear attempt to gain any form of advantage. Little did they know though, the retinue was just as adaptable to the changes that were happening before them. The second horror charged at Stukov and was swiftly blown into pieces that disintegrated into ash due to his shotguns blessed rounds, effectively stopping the horror where it stood for good. At the same time, Cole fired off precision shots at the horrors that hounded the retinue, though it was Adrianne's warp ability that effectively helped bring the lesser threat to an end. With the powers of the warp, the horrors were grouped up and slowed down to the point of where it seemed as if they were standings still, then blown into small pieces beyond recognition, thanks to Medaira and the well placed grenade that had been dropped on top of them.

Unfortunately, the Chaos Spawn had grown weary of merely observing from the rear of the battle, and now felt it was an appropriate time to move forward and begin it's assault upon the retinue. Celestian Andromedai was the first to raise her weapon and fire upon the hulking abomination, and while her rounds seemed to strike the Chaos Spawn, it appeared unphased by any damage it was taking. Unlike the horrors that had charged into the field of battle, the horror merely walked forward then bent down upon its front legs as if it was going to pounce but instead shot forth a hail of razor sharp quills. These quills fired at the retinue as a whole, and Celestian Andromedai found that they had the strength to disrupt even her Rosarius's conversion field emitter. One of the quills even managed to break through, and pierce into the Sister of Battles armor, though thankfully it did not puncture any skin.

In the middle of the fight, the retinues coms would activate, and Aviza's voice would be heard, even over the roars of rage that emitted from the Chaos Spawn. "Celestian Andromedai and retinue." began Aviza, though was quickly cut off from Andromedai who was not having any form of outside interruption at the moment. "Not now Aviza, we are in the middle of a situation!" said Andromedai, though Aviza was being persistent and started again. "There's a situation here as..." this time, Celestian Andromedai raised her voice, almost yelling at Aviza, who finely backed down, "Not now, Chaos Spawn!" The coms fell silent, and Celestian Andromedai fired another volley of heavy bolter rounds at the Chaos spawn who still shrugged off the attacks.

@rivaan Dr. J. S. Steinman vibes. ._.

Anyway, post up today, writers block is a hell of a thing.
@rivaan Sometimes your character worries me, more so as of recent.
The sudden outburst then change of mind from the retinues Psyker caught not only Lillith off-guard but also Celestian Andromedai, who now slowly turned to face the tall woman. For what felt like at least a minute, all eyes were focused upon Adrianne before Celestian Andromedai posed the question that everyone within the room was most likely thinking, "Adrianne, are you alright?" There was no time for a reply though, because Lillith introjected making her own comment, "I have to admit, you are all quite the strange group, I mean that in the most positive way I can, though!" Lillith seemed to peer over her left shoulder at something unseen before turning back to the retinue. "As much as I would like to stay and spend time with all of you, I have others I must turn my attention to. I am sure we will be talking again sometime very soon. Until then, take care of yourselves and enjoy the gift I have left for all of you." Lillith would then bow before the holographic image would vanish.

"I do not like the sound of that, prepare yourselves for a fight." said Celestian Andromedai before taking a few steps backwards. The massive door in front of the retinue that had runes covering it, ceased glowing, the runes vanishing. For a moment, an uncomfortable silence fell over the massive dome shaped room before the door would be violently torn from its secure position and flung across the room at the retinue. Celestian Andromedai quickly jumped out of the way, thankfully missing the door and then moving back onto her feet. What first emerged from the doorway were five Horrors of Tzeentch, but what followed behind it was much worse. A horrific amalgamation of limbs, eyes, teeth, scales, and claws, having trouble even fitting through the doorway. This Chaos Spawn of Tzeentch had a more avian form, almost representing the form of the eagle upon the arch they had entered through earlier ago.

Immediately, the horrors of Tzeentch began charging the retinue, while the Chaos Spawn slowly lumbered forward. Celestian Andromedai knew that if it wanted to, the Chaos spawn could move and great speeds, and from the looks of it even fly, but it seemed to be testing their combat abilities with the smaller horrors before moving to attack. Andromedai immediately unsheathed her Phase Sword and cut through the first horror to get within her range. The blade cut through the demon, with one clean motion, severing the body that seemingly had not noticed that it was now in two pieces.
Post will be up today!

Side note: I am putting in place a week long posting period, what this means is that everyone has a week to post after I do, then I will post. This will help move things along and keep myself posting frequently as well.
Still hiding behind the metal riot barrier, Celestian Andromedai held her ground as the seemingly endless heavy bolter fire pelted her location. The heavy weapons explosive rounds would occasionally fly over her head and detonate, though thankfully none had managed to bypass her Rosarius, and were little more than a nuisance as long as she did not take any direct hits. Leaning to her left, Andromedai peaked around the riot barrier for a few short seconds, trying to get a view of where she could fire off a few rounds or perhaps toss a grenade. What she observed was that the window where the heavy bolter had been set up, now had a hastily set up bunker-like shield set up over it. Smalls arms fire would do little, but her Adrastus Bolt Caliver could possibly strip the metal shielding off of it and give her enough room to throw a grenade or other explosive into the reinforced position.

"I may be able to weaken their reinforced position, but I will take some fire from doing so." said Andromedai as she readied to fire. Peaking back around the left side corner of the riot barrier, Andromedai fired off a well placed hail of heavy bolter fire at the reinforced position upon the sixth floor of the apartment building. This was immediately answered with heavy bolter fire from whoever was manning the weapon nest. The rounds barely missed Andromedai as she quickly moved back into cover, deciding that they would have to be more creative with their approach. Turning to face the rest of her retinue, Celestian Andromedai overhead the conversation between Stukov and Adrianne. They were apparently planning to teleport themselves up into the apartment complex to flank the reinforced position, and Andromedai wanted to join them, but decided to refrain from mentioning that. "That could work, just be cautious, you two do not know what you will find within the apartment." said Andromedai as she merely observed the two vanish from where they had been taking cover with a bright, violet flash of light that left lingering after images within her vison.

For a moment, it seemed as if nothing had happened. The heavy bolter fire continued to pelt her position, and Celestian Andromedai was beginning to wonder if they had been teleported to the wrong apartment complex, or perhaps somewhere much, much worse. Andromedai opened her mouth to inquire if Stukov and Adrianne were alright when suddenly, one of the cultists flew through the front wall of the sixth story apartment complex, followed by flaming debris that rained down upon her. "Clearly, you two have the situation under control." said Andromedai as the heavy bolter fire from above suddenly ceased. Using the break in fire as an opportunity to advance into the apartment complex. As she kicked down the front door of the apartment complex, she replied to Medaira's question, "You have been pondering? Don't think to hard or you may hurt yourself. All kidding aside, I doubt those were the only hostile forces. We will encounter more as we head deeper into the apartment complex, I am sure."

Sweeping her Adrastus Bolt Caliver from the left and then to the right, she noticed that there were currently no hostiles within the immediate area. Andromedai did not lower her weapon though, and kept it at the ready, and would fire upon any movement that was not friendly. "Cole and Medaira, follow behind me, watch your corners and your our backs." Taking a few steps forward, Andromedai immediately noticed the gold and blue decorations that were excessive and intricate. "Sure feels like a Tzeentch base rahter than something Khorne." Flipping a small switch upon the side of her Adrastus Bolt Caliver, Andromedai activated the weapons Adrastite directed energy beam. "Everyone regroup on the first floor, we will decide our next move from there." said Andromedai, who noticed that the apartment complex was oddly quiet, except for their own movements through the building. Taking a few steps forward once more, Andromedai felt a low rumble through the floor boards beneath her feet.

Taking a grenade from her belt, Andromedai prepped it before tossing it far down the hallway in front of her. It would land upon the ground with a metallic noise that echoed through the apartment complex before detonating. The explosion knocked paintings off of walls and sent splinters from furniture and other debris flying in every direction. Along with the detonation and debris, arks of bright blue electricity shot across the hallway in front of them, barely missing Andromedai and her squad. When in a Tzeentch base, expect traps." said Andromedai as she stepped forward as soon as the arks ended. Leaning forward, she would expect the traps that had been placed. "These traps were made to stun anyone that entered them, not kill them. They want us alive after all, but for what reason, I wonder?" said Andromedai as she stepped forward and pointed towards the end of the hallway where a new door had been exposed from the blast of the grenade. "There is our entrance into said Tzeentch base, I will take lead." Andromedai would carefully but quickly move forward towards the door, reaching out she gripped onto its handle and opened it just enough for one of Andromedai's flashbangs to be slipped through. Prepping one of the stun grenades, she tossed it through the opening of the door then closed it for a moment, waiting for it explosion. Once it did go off, Andromedai would kick open the door and began heading down a set of lavish marble stairs and even more lavishly decorated hallway. At the end of it, was a massive dome shaped room, painted upon the ceiling was an image of Tzeentch himiself. Andromedai quickly glanced away and noticed that there was only one door in front of them, but it was massive, and seemed to be sealed off by some sort of warp runes.

"I was expecting a base of sorts but, this is more than what I had in mind." said Andromedai as she she raised her weapon and readied to fire upon any hostile that may show itself up her. For the moment, nothing happened, but then a sickening wave of energy washed over the room, and the image of someone that matched the image of the previously described Daemonette appeared in front of them. Andromedai instantly fired upon the hostile, but the energy beam went right through her, it was merely a warp holographic image cast before them.

The Daemonette now spoke, "So this is the Inquisitorial retinue that has discovered my presence, and our small shrine to Tzeentch. The Daemonettes voice was smooth, calming, peaceful, non-threatening, welcoming, why would you want to fight her? "I am Lillith, and you mortals are so easily predicted, such simple creatures that I have become rather fond of. I know each of you, your names, your mission here, your movements through the city and beyond. I enjoy knowing these things, and also know what it is you are after. You are here to clear out Chaos infiltrators, cultists, and any other forces that may impede upon your Imperium of Man. I can give you all of this information for nothing in return. For I already have what I want, and have already achieved my goal within the system. So, Andromedai, Stukov, Medaira, Cole, and of course Adrianne." The Daemonette winked slyly at their Psyker, before continuing what she was saying, "What shall it be? Will you accept my offer of information or shall we engage in the bloodshed you and your type are all so familiar with?"
