Lt. Lance Davis is an ex-military who lived miserably with her wife Angela. He was haunted by the horrors of the wars he experienced when he was in active military service. He was called back by the head of covert ops department (Blackwolf), Commander James Johnson, to be enlisted as a covert operative. For the purpose of total termination of suspected rebel fortification in Mt. Elberus. Lt. Lance Davis and his close comrades discovered that they are not fighting against rebel militants but mysterious immortal monsters, or the locals call them, Rakashas. These monsters are invulnerable and cannot be killed using their normal weapons. Lance also discovers that he himself is not normal, he has the Rakasha bloodline and he also possessed inhuman strength and speed. The longer he trains inside Blackwolf, the true intentions of their Commander surfaces. The Commander’s objective is not to protect their Government, UAC, by eradicating the Rakasha race, but to acquire the knowledge of achieving immortality by studying them. Lance knew that he is the key of ending his Commander's unethical intent and later on decides on a dilemma - to side with his Commander and kill these monsters or to protect these monsters and stop his Commanding officer.

Prologue
Castle Rise Hotel, Bower City (6 months before) The serenity of the night crept throughout the sophistication of the Castle Rise Penthouse. The night achieved long years of peace, giving comfort to every constituents of Bower City and its neighboring allies. But this peacefulness that the night carried hung in a balance, so delicate that a small spark would topple everything into chaos. United Alliance Confederation Defense Secretary Henry Wallace was soundly sleeping, all naked, under his bedsheets. With him was a high-class hooker comfortably sleeping, curled at Henry's left side. Ring! Ring! Ring! Suddenly, the wireless digital telephone placed on top of a nightstand, rang loud and replaced the night's serenity. Secretary Henry woke up and rubbed his eyes, hauled himself from slumber seemingly from exhaustion, and sat at the edge of the bed. Cursing under his breath. Lazily, he reached for the telephone's loudspeaker button

The Kill Squad
Mt. Elberus, 2300 HOn a very quiet night, the wind blew cold and darkness engulfs the heavy rain forest of Mt. Elberus. The sound of crickets and dancing trees was only audible at this time of night. The coldness chilled the bones of the black ops team heading to the mission site. There were three armed vehicles in convoy running at medium speed bouncing off against the rocky terrain. Captain Luke Mason and his 20 fellow agents were very silent in the armed military vehicle. They could not comprehend what, but maybe it was the cold breeze the Mountain offered with a perfect combination of lifelessness and a blanket of darkness or the risk of participating in any Kill squad missions.The Captain, a handsome middle-aged man, addressed his team via radio and went over the mission details. Efficient, experienced, and dedicated to the military code, the Captain possessed, had gained him the respect from everybody under his wing. He headed the Kill squad wi

The Inevitable Fear
Base Camp, Mt. ElberusUnrest occupied the room as the two military personnel sensed tremendous stress about Commander James. He sat on an office chair a few steps back from their desks and often the Commander will linger at their monitors as they felt his breathing touching their nape. Redundant questions were being asked and the same answers the two military personnel delivered."Anything? Any signs of the Kill squad?""Nothing sir."Every minute took longer than before as sudden fear crept their skin, not for their Commander but their comrades' safety. It was highly unlikely for the mission to fail, or so as they expected every Kill squad to be a success. Following mission protocols, they must have considered all options, barricades, anything that could pull the mission down, but seemingly they did not.'Could this be our first failed mission?' The military personnel perturbed with questions in their minds.At last, a blu

A Call to Arms
River Creek, Astron CityThe machine hummed, increasing, as the accelerator's pedal descended closest to the automotive floor. It conquered the highest revolution almost beyond its safe capacity. It swerved and cut traffic between a stream of city cars running at medium speed as the road lights blurred in Lance's vision.Lance drove his Prius a little bit hazy and drunk with little concern about safety and life. Maybe he was looking for sudden death, to end this all. As the volume of city lights decreased, he was now beyond the grasp of the Capital. He drove towards home or now a house that sits on a medium-end City subdivision. He drove past medium and large houses in River creek. It was past midnight and the neighborhood was quiet. Their subdivision's street was lit faintly with distant street lights and with a slight number of trees planted in between them. River Creek was dark and gloomy during this time and the crescent moon was high, illuminating

The Eyeball
Astron City - the next daySun rose from behind the hills. Its rays peeked through, slightly embracing the beautifully designed neighborhood, River Creek. Birds chirped, as they were heard every morning, bouncing from beautifully spaced ornamental trees emphasizing the concrete road webbing through the subdivision.It was always this way, the beauty that the subdivision offered. Almost overlooking the expanse of Astron City, making this property a little bit above the medium-end classification. As the sun was at its peak, the ornamental trees provided shade on roads to maintain the coolness if people opt to evade the slightly harmful sun rays.At this time of day, River Creek was almost a bunch of empty houses as the majority of the tenants went to Astron City, burying themselves to work just to compensate for the lifestyle that they have chosen. But not Lance, he stayed in the house during the daytime, and most often than not, he went out durin

The Invitation
(Warehouse 12, Astron City)The tall man behind the table finally spoke. "Lt. Lance Davis. Welcome. Please sit down." Lance felt sudden ease. He sighed and exhaled deeply. His heart pounding decreased. More than a familiar face, a hero, celebrated by many, a memorable monument made for his unequaled level of service to the country, but to some extent, he was not sure if it was good or not. On the other hand, he was the black operatives Department Head. Maybe he was needed killing, off-the-books. Nonetheless, Lance was calm now. Because he thought that if he was targeted then he was already dead years before."I know who you are. You are Commander James Johnson." Lance turned around and he saw Kate, the woman he acquainted last night at the bar. That moment, Lance knew that the letter was legitimate for the reason that Kate was under Commander James Johnson. He sensed friendliness from Kate's face. He could identify if a person was intended to kill but

But the degree of police engagement was different depending on the locations. Busier if you were stationed at crowded municipalities and less more engaged if located near the outskirts of the City.Brensby police station was one of the outskirt locations of Bower City. A few policemen were assigned in this part of the area, and most of the time they would sleep on duty for almost no cases to handle at all. Brensby was one place with the fewest public establishments and it was almost conquered by domestic housing, low-end to high-end, and a large patch of barren. The tallest building would be a 5 story building apartment.
