The Theme for Afterworld: [video=youtube;W3qkiHuslDQ]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3qkiHuslDQ[/video] On June 15, 1983, a meteor called Prophet impacted the surface. In response, the recently formed New Empire of America or NEA, publicly stated the impact as an act of war by enemies of the country, who used an orbital weapons platform to incite violence. It was a cover-up, our Forefathers who formed the Stronghold knew the truth, the newly formed regime wanted supreme power, and used the tragedy to justify their cause. They tried to expose it, our forefathers, only to be outcast and ridiculed on the media networks that weren't focused on the NEA's response to the "attack". A few hours after initial relief efforts were started the NEA and countries all around the world assaulted each other with Nuclear weapons. Our fore fathers, they watched in silent horror quarantined undergound in our own Plug, MP001, the only military issued plug built before the split in government. Unlike the citizens plugs, which weren't able to be opened for a minimum of a century, to ensure sufficient decontamination time for the surface, MP001 was set to open after 40 years with all inhabitants being given experimental chemicals designed to buff radiation resistance. It's now 2083, and the first Plug has been found, Plug 012, Master General Yurik has given us orders to hold a position near the aperture release site. Intel says NEA forces know where the plug is and want to take it for themselves, our job is to hold and defend until we're given an all clear sign from Intel. Secondary objective is to liberate all surviving inhabitants and guide them to a safe haven to be determined after site scouting. Outline: Gunnery Sergeant Darryl "Cyrax" Harrison and his team have been assigned to liberating and relocating the inhabitants of Plug 012. As it stands they're low on ammunition, water and medical supplies, as they have been out in the field for a month already. They are tired and irritated, though many including the Sergeant take motivation from wanting to meet relics from a past they could never know. Character: Name: Darryl "Cyrax" Harrison Affiliation: Stronghold of the Dream Rank: Gunnery Sergeant Age: 27 Gender: Male Species: Chemically Augmented Human History: Like many Stronghold soldiers since 2023, he was born in the infirmary of their Fortress, and raised like a normal child would be, educated and well mannered, however he had a bit of a stability issue. From a young age he was prone to nervous breakdowns that led to him involuntarily learning how to free run, due to his needing to exert his overwhelming nervous issues. He gained the name Cyrax after a couple of the children heard the sound of a circular saw, a weapon he was using against a rampaging mutant that had fought his way into the compound. From there it was apparent he would excel as a Defender of the Dream, and was taken at age 11 to be trained in the Plug which was his home until his 18 birthday, when he was given a rifle and told to defend the Dream. Appearance: He's tall around 6' even, with greyish brown hair due to chemical mutation. He wears a standard issue SPEC-10 HUD visor, a tool given to team leaders to have direct links to Intel and Yurik. His hair is short at the top for the right side and most of the left but becomes longer around a small margin of the top of the left of his head and reaches shoulder length around the side and back on the left while on the right it changes to longer dreadlocks. He's muscular and has a scruffy dark brown beard with a jagged scar across his left cheek. Weapons: A portable battery operated circular saw designed by Stronghold scientists, Glock 17, M-16 A2 Assault Rifle, K-Bar knife Personality: Cyrax is duty bound, very faithful to the Dream, a concept the ForeFathers instilled in ever budding member of the Stronghold's Forces. He is kind, stern and tries to be fair, yet he is quick to anger, and quick to get violent.
