Sinister Outpost Backstory

When The Apparition set forth disguised as a frigate. Scheduled to go to Umoja she went to an undiscovered, uncharted world in Protoss space. This world has an estimated 13x more valuable resources then red stone that could be sold for nearly three million credits per ton. It would change the way terrans fought war for ever.

Just before they started making plans, a new law was issued that no person or persons could mine on any worlds in Protoss space. This world was deep in Protoss space. Captain Trevor Balroy and Mike Richey were the only ones that knew where the mining crew was really going. When they reached the planet, the mining crew were only beginning to catch on. But it didn’t matter, after they saw how lucrative this world was, they were just going to play dumb and walk away millionares. They established a mining colony in complete secret. Nobody tried to communicate with the rest of the Korprulu sector until something terrible happened...

They had already hauled one hundred tons before they found a strange artifact. This majestic piece of art was put on a shuttle, and sent to The Apparition for further inspection. People only started to get a clue when strange sightings were seen. Things, not terran, protoss, or zerg were roaming around outside the colony. People within the colony would begin to do things over and over again that just didn’t make sense, like cooking the same thing for an hour and not even caring that is was a burnt rock. Or eating leaves and claiming it was jellyfish. Some would just start going crazy, ripping their teeth out and running into walls. Others would have strange dreams, some couldn’t sleep at all, not even a wink until their body finally collapsed on the floor in one big lump.

These symptoms are nothing compared to the trials they would face next. Pretty soon, their dead would rise, and mutate. Hands would become claws, legs would duplicate, eyes would become orange, or red. Skin would grow dark and hard. These mutations attack everything that moves and the miners were completely defenseless. The only defenses were a few turrets and about 100 security team members. Not much more details are known about the attack of the “Necromorphs,” as they called them.

About the same time The Apparition started to experience the same problems. The ship goes dark and multiple problems arise. Pretty soon, the dominion realized they had been missing for months. They sent out a small ship in search for the apparition, they only found death and destruction. Few survivors escaped on the escape pods. Others, weren’t so lucky.

The Story So Far

It all began with Umoja's Plains. The place where a battle erupted into a war of the wits. The place where a ship called the Daybreak crashed and caused it all. After the crash Yuun and Diego, aboard the Retribution hired Markus Devroy and "The Dishonored" aboard the Ignominy to hunt down the survivors of the Daybreak and find out what caused this ship to mysteriously crash for no apparent reason. In the end, a battle erupted between the Retribution and the Ignominy leaving the Ignominy in ruin above an outer fringe world.

Meanwhile...

A frigate named the Apparition goes dark on a outer fringe world. finally, an investigation team is sent with Sean Trope as their leader. After boarding the Apparition, they discover it has been contaminated by a terrible disease that causes people to go insane with dimensia, and causes the dead to rise and attack everything that moves. They bearily escape in the escape pods and are now stranded in a Sinister Outpost on the outer fringe world.

What they dont know...

...is they're on the same fringe world.

Her mother Maylene had been having an affair with a Kel-Morian official, and used a Kel-Morian raid on their home town to fake their deaths while her father was at war. Despising her mother for abandoning her father, Relasta fled from home two years later and taught herself swordswork while searching for her father, only to find that he had died in an explosion a year after her own supposed death. She spent the next few years on her own in the fringe worlds, where she learned how to forge weapons, specializing in swords but also capable at gunsmithing. Her greatest achievements are her swords, which she never parts from. She became curious when rumors of an expert sharpshooter for hire who matched her father's description arose. She has been pursuing him ever since in an effort to reconnect.

Defining characteristics: sarcastic humor, expert with her swords, burning desire to meet the father she never knew, capable smith, skilled pilot.

Defining Characteristics: Loyal, but to a point. Has a scar running from his eyebrow to his lip. Often rude, but caring.

<Morrjo>
Name: Michael Dare
Age: 18
Race: Terran
Class: Drone Specialist
Primary Weapon: Modded C-10 Canister Rifle
Secondary Weapon: Drone Remote
Backstory: Michael was hired to the Mobius foundation for a time, due to his skills in both hacking and just around anything high-tech in general, but held a particular interest for small robots. With a quick mind, he's more suited for tactical overview and analysis of situations than upfront combat, scouting with drones and using them to thin up enemy numbers through harassment. Can pick off larger targets with a customized, high caliber C-10 canister rifle, though he isn't a very good shot.
Defining Characteristics: Approximately six-foot four, very thin. Carries a small handheld with him used for controlling drones, and prefers long-range combat to short range scuffles.


<Morrjo>
Name: "Noctalus" Dare
Age: 17
Classification: Rescue/Lab Rat
Profession: Heavy Ordinance
Backstory:An adopted son of Michael's, Noctalus was an orphan on the run from a special ghost program by the project's codename: 'Nightmare'. Noctalus has been his assistant as well as a prime candidate for research into psionic research, due to unusual readings. Upon hearing the ship his father was told to investigate had crashed into a planet, he quickly ran from the Mobius foundation, determined to find his 'father' and only line of defense against the Dominion and Mobius, before the scientists decide to strap him onto a dissection table, or worse...
Defining Characteristics: Approximately six-foot three, is fairly thin, but ports advanced, prototyped armor with a heavy-duty nanite generator, as well as a plasmite-chaingun, designed to shred through tanks without much difficulty. His suit's energy well allows him to mitigate physical damage at the expense of energy, giving him inhuman endurance, though his mobility suffers significantly.

Markus swore and turned away

"This is my fault..."

He shook his head in frustration, then ran outside the ship.

"THIS IS MY FAULT!!!" he screamed to the sky, then fell to his knees. A single tear strode down his face.

He glared at Markus. "Good intentions but bad timing on your part." With that Graal was on his knees and he put his hand over the slice wound and started to put pressure on it. "Okay, think happy thoughts and try to think about something else." The energy of light and dark was starting to close the wound and I let go.
Posts: 3,971
Do not. This will take time.

(This is directed at Graal.)

Gradually, Relasta's entire body begins shaking. "!@#$. So cold. How did it get so cold."

Kyle heard Markus screaming and had about five flashbacks. That was many people's last words. Kyle then realized that Markus could very well kill himself.

He stood up and tore his way to the Mess hall, hopefully to find Markus' friend. Finding him he said,
"Hey, your friend is experiencing extreme guilt. In my experience, everyone who experiences what he is experiencing has killed themselves. We must disarm him immediately."
Posts: 17,704
He put his hand back onto the wound. As you wish.
Posts: 26,986
I look at the man. "You do it. He isn't listening to me, nor do you know what that man just went through." I then face the survivor who had spoken to me. "You're right. You won't live another day if you keep staying in wide areas with ventilation shafts all over the place. Let's see if we can find a room with only one vent and seal this room." I lead them out then hack security and seal the doors. Just in time too, more necromorphs flowed in, looking for something to kill. {Mark, we need to get these people out of here or there isn't gonna be any of them left.} I led them to the main control room and confront Mike. "Why'd you put them in the mess hall?"

Kyle turned to Sean, "Sean, find him! Disarm him, quickly!" Sean turned and began running as fast as he could toward where he heard the scream. Markus had fallen to the floor, not caring whether he lived or died.

---

"I didn't that's just where they reside! The attacks have picked up since you arrived."

"I think I know of a way to get out of here, but I will need your help." Mike said.

No problem, me too. Sean and Kyle are in the outpost trying to save Markus from killing himself.

You are a very strange individual, Graal, as is your wife. The wound must remain open, and my sister must be retrieved. We will handle the rest, though our mother will be very weak for some time. For once, there seemed to be a trace of emotion in Andl'at's cold voice.

The runes that marked the sword seemed to grow darker, as if holes had been made in reality itself. Relasta's shuddering became more violent, causing Andl'at to slide back and forth, opening the wound further, slicing apart the muscle and cutting nearly to the bone. The streaks of blood that had flowed from the wound flattened and ceased.

"If it involves using the Apparition's comm tower, well ahead of you. I even have a neutral system that can help us out."

OOC: Permission to destroy infected planet at the end of the RP?
Posts: 7,984
OOC: I'd prefer you not. But you can destroy the outpost :) The whole planet actually isn't infected. Just the outpost and the apparition. Not only that, but with the ending I'm planing, it won't be necessary.

IC:
"Well you seem to be a step ahead. Sean and Kyle, the survivors of the Apparition will be invaluable people on your expedition. You must contact them and get them to come with you."

So you must be her weapons then?

Graal was intrigued by the blacksmith work on those two, they were incredible and they even rivaled Keeper. He was standing over Andl'at and was started to yank it out of the wall with all of his strength, after putting enough power behind it he yanked it out and placed it next to Relasta.

So what's with this one always getting stuck in walls?
