The Citadel was as bustling with activity as ever, perhaps more thanks to the influx of refugees. Though everyone knew about it by now you wouldn't know it by the way the civilians and merchants carried on. That the galaxy was at war with an overwhelming threat. Yet today marked the birth of a new unit. One virtually no one outside of the program would be made aware of. As far as your average citizen knew, the brand new frigate sitting in bay C-36 was just another ship. One they didn't recognize, but it's purpose and design were a well kept secret. "I still don't understand, councillor. Why me?" The young Asari, Elana wore a questioning expression on her face. Councillor Tevos was speaking to her candidate over a private communicator, her voice clearly expressing her own growing lack of patience. "Because Elana, you show great promise and we need someone with experience in combating Cerberus. Right now you are on hand and more than suited for this mission. Now then. You have your orders, the rest of your new team will be arriving shortly including your captain. I don't want to receive any negative reports is that clear?" "Yes councillor." The monotone to her voice was telling enough. She was simply the best they could manage? What high praise that turned out to be. With a huff the girl placed her cheek in her palm, using her biotics to pull over her drink, slipping the straw between her dark blue lips. "Where is everyone else, anyway?" "Relax," Tevos tried to reassure the bored sounding maiden. "The council has had to call the team from all over the station." "Some of us have been here the whole time." The voice came from Nathan, one of the other members for this project. His active camouflage finally vanished, revealing that he had been sitting with his feet propped up in another chair with his hands folded over his stomach. "Elana, meet Nathan Daniels. He's a human sharpshooter. He'll be a part of your squad." Councilor Tevos informed the surprised looking girl with a hint of amusement in her voice. "It's a pleasure, Elana. Though you really should mind your manners when talking to a senior." Elana chuckled, "You? Judging by your looks, I'm at least three times your age." Nathan simply shook his head before gesturing towards the hologram of councilor Tevos. "I wasn't talking about me, cupcake." Tevos sent Elana a smirk before turning and walking out of the hologram.
