Phantom Menace Arc Somewhere in Northern Part of Kingdom of Persia, 14/01/2051 "During my part of the covert mission, I was transported in a disguised cargo plane, heading to Ryn Desert, USSR. However, this is one of dirty works that the Phantom Menace should get this job done. But however, this is no easy mission as my team commander had regards of the mission. 5 of my teams were like partners and my female squad mate named Mariana who is always ahead of the mission and she's a fine-looking lady who treats me well in sorties. The other is Aiden Kladegrave Carter, a seasoned veteran and a head member of the squadron who know the type of warfare, he participates in part of the South-Eastern Continental War and made it out of the war alive with a shrapnel pierced into his thick skull. Well me, I am just an engineer who works strictly under the circumstances in ACF and working in part of wartime. Anyway, the covert mission I was talking about? It's a covert reconnaissance to scout on the new mech technology that was built by military scientist Kaede Busujima. Imported and delivered in a truck, likely to be the Chinese military. It is some kind of super mech and these parts were supposed to be powerful and endurable walking tank, designed in mind, these mech parts aren't standard and made by Ms. Busujima likely to make it by the Chinese military authorities. Our mission here is to gather the information and leave USSR as soon as possible. Our squadron entered the research facility and the place was seen to be abandoned for decades. But not until hit hard, getting ambushed by the Soviet Mechs. Since my squad mates were holding the ground on the facility, we missed out of my female squad-mate and that's Mariana. She was asking for immediate support, but later killed by an elite mech pilot that made my blood tingling. She didn't want to die at the end and I used to love with the woman is now dead in my hands. When we cleared out the remaining enemies on the facility, the research facility started exploding without noticing that the facility was rigged with explosives. My squad mates and even my commander tried to get to the rendezvous point on the forest, but instead, ACF military had denied to bring up the transportation and decided to abandon us for good. My squadron was split up from every direction and began to leave Ryn Desert as soon as possible. With the Phantom Menace squadron disavowed during the covert reconnaissance and never to be seen again. I started going to the Northern part of Persia and avoided every military personnel spotting me, with my mecha. Since I was managed to disassemble my mech parts and loading onto the truck, outside Ryn Desert in the east, I got myself moving to east, heading to the Persian border. I turned on the radio and hearing the entire incident back from the Ryn Desert and the research facility, where the incident is occurring and saying that ACF military had attacked the Soviet Research Facility. That Soviet President is covering up the truth and he is getting the entire military to guard the border. But however, the research facility was supposed to be abandoned and used it as a lure bait to trigger an upcoming war. Luckily for me, I did my best of escaping from all of this incident. A year has passed. The European Union is getting along with the Kingdom of Persia, gaining the relationship between them. Japan has fallen under control by China, due of ACF's failed attempt to repel the invasion, forcing all civilians to leave Japan and sailing back to the USA. But, I haven't got any help after the incident and ACF military left us isolated. I am no longer working with the ACF military, but changed my career as a mercenary, wandering aimlessly to survive the harsh conditions in Persia. I haven't died, nor giving up hope where I would be having my own grave to just abandon my own life. I try to get my revenge on the Soviet military by sending us into a trap." Serge finished typing every word of the letters on the computer, making the previous events he occurred in the past. At first, he's living with his life of drinking a few of alcohol and whiskey to forget the past. Having all his life dedicated to the mercenary business, he got up and started walking to the balcony to get some fresh air. He was living in Chapayev, with the EU military personnel gathered here for additional protection. It was afternoon and coming to a sunset, considering to have a nice view of the sun. He didn't try to wait there, instead he had a schedule that he was supposed to attend for the Remnant of 28th at sunset. Serge hurried as he grabs the whiskey and immediately drinking it up and then, throw it on the ground. He was grabbing his pilot jacket and went to the garage. He was such in a hurry, which he cannot afford to get late by the schedule. He was already in the garage and immediately went inside the cockpit, closing down the hatch and starting up the engines. Turning on his communication from the mercenary group, he starts talking to their commander in charge of the Remnant of 28th, which he's been gaining with the relations since in the past. "Serge to commander of Remnant of 28th. Where do I meet you at the rendezvous of the place?" He said within a deep voice.
