The day was bright above the workers. The sound of sizzling metal and debris was a consistent sound in the rumble of the cliff side. Zero was looking around in the debris quickly; such was the command of his commanding officer.
He worked for the Terrarian Secret Service. He was forced into this when the service took over his area in search of Darthmorf's laboratory. He was your average guy, wearing the armor the service gave out and boar a few scars from battles he was in. He didn't make many friends, having no respect for this government size power he was forced into. He also didn't like how he had no benefit from the goal of finding the lab, at least he didn't see any benefit in as much as they were allowed to tell him in the mission debriefing.
He was told to come to this area after a large explosion was accounted for there. It wasn't even one of the missiles they had fired at the area; it had blown up by it. Though they didn't cause the destruction, they jumped immediately at the opportunity to salvage what they could from the destruction.
Most of the lab has collapsed, blown up, or just fell into the ocean where the documents and experiments were assumed to have been destroyed. The grass and trees around the area of the lab were seared and blown over. The cliff side was nearly fully into the ocean, the side barely hanging on to the land it was connected to. This exposes warped and charred metal and sparking wires that dangled from the metal.
Zero shifted around the debris. He was bored and sure they would find nothing in the rumble. He quickly slid down the side of the cliff as he scanned the side of it only to fail at finding anything at all. He quickly stopped himself at the beach of the ocean and looked around at the base of the cliff. He could hear a sound similar to cracking glass under his metal boots. The sand hand melted in the flames of the explosion and heated parts of the fallen lab. He spotted a large piece of debris with odd looking objects on it. He walked over to make a closer inspection only to find it was warped metal that melted to a wall, though he did catch something in his vision under the debris just barely.
He struggled a bit to lift it since he had to get use to the heat of it due to the explosion and sun rays that it still has yet to cool off from, and it was very sharp and warped, making it hard to grip it correctly without getting cut or getting into an uncomfortable position. After I moment off pushing it to the side he gave it one last kick causing it to slide of what appeared to be a very busted door. The metal walling slid off with a grinding sound of metal on metal; the others could be heard talking from atop the cliff.
He quickly began to pry the door open the best she could only to have little success and leaving the door cracked up a little. Thought the opening was small, Zero was small and could barely slide himself in. Upon stepping in, he fumbled down a stairway right at the door that he didn't see.
When he reached the bottom of the stairs he released a groan of pain as he lifted his head up to look around. The room was dark and the only light that was present was the light protruding through the slightly opened doorway. He slowly stood up and ran his hands around the walls around the stairs for a switch. He found one and flipped it only to have the lights fail to turn on. He quickly turned on his flashlight and shined it at the room before him.
He could see large glass cylinders filled with a teal fluid and large shadows inside them. The room and tubes were anonymous and loomed over Zero. The room was still in one piece and wasn't really beat up though the power was out which he expected. The lab had many tubes and vaults with what he assumed to be reinforced. He walked over slowly next to one of the giant glass cylinders and looked at the connected dashboard and monitor.
He picked up a clipboard and looked at what it shown. It was a document on mutant experiments. The shadow in its glass prison was named Plantera. There were other vessels like these, but instead of exploring more he quickly called in his team to come and investigate through the communication system he had.
Days passed as he rested in his room as he usually does alone. He was sifting through his memories of what he saw in that lab. There was one that had no shadow and seemed to blend in with the teal slime that surrounded what may have been encased in the glass. A hulking circular shadow with little strands of nerve tissues dangling from the back of it like it was a dislodged eye. One of them was a large curled shadow, almost in a way a wyvern or arch wyvern would, just corrupted and sinister in a way. Then he remembered the shadow of Plantera, knowing exactly what that glass cell held after reading the notes.
Zero jumped at a knock on the door, getting quickly yanked from his memory back into reality. An envelope popped out of his mail receiver as the deliverer pushed the tray inward, causing the open end to appear on the other side of the door without opening the door. Zero quickly walked over and picked up the envelope, expecting some sort of call for a mission but the envelope was very wore down and wrinkled. The envelope was hardly sealed too.
"Someone was in a rush..." Zero mumbled and tore open the envelope to read its contents. The paper inside was even more worn out than the envelope. The letters were easily readable being very big, the sender's hand writing suggest he was a bad writer or was struggling even to put on word down given the jerking motion of the writing. Zero assumed who ever this was, was in trouble do to the poor condition of it all. He was curious on why he got this though, he never spoke to anyone, not that much at the least and he wasn’t any help to anyone. He kept wandering until he read the contents of the paper which revealed how such a choice was made.
"Meet me..." Zero began to read to himself softly. The sentences, if you could call them that, were very incomplete and only held barely three to two words. "...sun down-outskirts of base-about mutations." The note ended rather quickly there. After Zero heard 'mutations' he knew he had to go. He didn’t know why he had to go, it was just an innate feeling he could not understand.
Hours passed as Zero prepared to go, grabbing his pistol and a flashlight, unsure of what he would find at the other end of that note. He quickly made his way to the road, going a mile or two away from the military base for good measure. He slowly leaned against a tree and waited. About half an hour pasted before a rustling could be heard by Zero. He quickly aimed his pistol at the noise of movement.
"Ho whoa whoa whoa! Holster your weapon I’m friendly!" Said an unknown voice from the dark of the forest that shrouded anything that lay away from the road. Zero said nothing and refused the move his weapon's sight from the voice. Instead he turned on his flashlight and attached it to his pistol to see who said this. In the light was Darthmorf shielding his eyes from the light of the flashlight.
"Can you dim the light please?" Darthmorf said as he crawled out of the brush of the forest and next to Zero on the road.
"Who are you!?" Zero demanded while keeping the gun's aim on him.
"Darthmorf! I’m the one you guys stole my mutants from." He said quickly, but professionally as well. Zero paused for a moment, observing him. Darthmorf was pretty ok in his state of health, just very tired. The same could not be said about his clothing's condition. His lab coat and clothes were beat up and seared badly. Zero gave this thought leading him to believe that he was telling the truth and must have escaped what was on the military base's radar after the explosion.
"Why did you bring me here?" Zero said at first keeping the pistol up only to holster it after a few minutes of observing Darthmorf.
"The mutants, I need them back." He sputtered out.
"Well you can’t, I don’t know who you are and if you’re lying to me about 'your' mutants." Zero said stubbornly.
"It’s not about having them back as mine; it’s about destroying them before they awake them!" Darthmorf said quickly, obviously in a rush for some reason unknown to Zero.
"Ok, then tell me what happens when they do awake." Zero said, no intending to actually listen.
"T-hat..." Darthmorf pointed to the burning fortress that was Zero's base. The base looked like it was not holding well as shadowy figures flew around the base, destroying many parts of it. "We have to stop them!" Darthmorf said. Where Darthmorf saw disaster in the near future, Zero saw an opportunity to get away from his forced job there. Zero silently began to walk away from the area. "What are you doing?" Darthmorf asked as Zero paid no mind in walking away.
"Getting away..." Zero said and continued.
"I don’t care"
"Why should I help...?” Zero said, finally turning his head to Darthmorf"
"Because if they get into the world, we are going to have issues." Darthmorf explained vaguely. Zero remained silent and softly sighed.
"Got a plan?" Zero turns to Darthmorf slowly.
"They aren’t fully developed yet, they’ll return to the tubes to finish development, go to the tubes and activate emergency kill sequence." Zero simply nods and walks past Darkmorf, unholstering his gun as he made the trek back up to the base.
He awaited the base to go silent before he moved to the front gate. There were a lot dead, but no mutants, suggesting they were successful. The gate was bent badly allowing Zero to slip through. The base was in sparks with electrical devices littering the area. He quickly made his way into the base. The walls were mossy for some reasons on some spots, and the corpses had some sort of sap on them. He continued in deeper into the base.
"Now how are we going to find these guys...?" He mumbled and looked at the giant holes in the floor and walls. "Follow the giant monster holes...got it..." He mumbled and jumped down one, leading to a basement level of the facility.
This part of the facility was still somewhat intact, just very beat up. There was hardly any light due to the power being taken down. He quickly pulled his gun out and activated its light. He looked for the stairs for a while, but eventually came across a sticky door-it was covered in sap. He quickly tried to open it, which resulted in it giving way and collapsing into a room with no floor, causing him to fly forward down the hole as well.
When he landed he groaned and got up, looking around the room. This place was the green house level, specializing on actual living weapons of poison. The door was bolted and the room he was in was an equipment room. The little window on the door shown pollen from the poisonous plants covering all the halls and rooms. The door had painted symbols on it, danger symbols, alerting toxins in the air.
Zero did a quick scan of the room and looked at a busted locker. He quickly walked over and started to pick through the locker. He began to find random items such as pictures of the former user of the locker, clippers, a pistol, and a gas mask. Zero immediately took the gas mask and walked back to the door, putting it on while walking to the door. He curiously looked at the bolts, wandering how he would be able to open it. He gave it a kick just to feel out the door, but it simply fell over, causing the toxic particles to flood into the room. The door from was already broken apparently, making the door's bolts pointless.
He quickly made his way down the halls, taking in the surroundings. This place was hardly beat up but very over grown with moss and plants of sorts. He quickly made his way to the elevator and climbed in. He climbed to the elevator shaft through the elevator, assuming that the lack of power would mean a lack of elevator usage. He squint his eyes as he cut the lines, causing the elevator to plummet to the final level of the facility.
He slowly picked himself up; pushing through the pain of the many wounds he suffered from the fall. The slide down the crumpled elevator and his armor broke his fall. He looked around the room to see the pods he was looking for. The shadows in the teal fluid floated in them, attached to the tubes coming from the bottom of the pod. He assumed this to be their life support. He began to limp to the console that controlled all of them, stumbling from feeling light headed from the fall.
He eventually made it to the console and activated the emergency kill sequence, though an error appeared telling him to go and choose which he wanted to eliminate. Zero slowly limped around, priming all of the mutants for elimination, and quickly made his way back to the console. He tried again. The screen when green and almost immediately the creatures were all screeching.
Everything was going very well until the screen flashed red, telling him the life support tubes had disconnected. The ground began to rumble as he looked behind him at the tubes. The tubes fluids begins to glow green from the poison and with a large explosion, the mutants blew themselves out of the tubes. They had finished growing.
The shadows flew around the room, too quick for him to see exactly what they looked like, only occasionally see a vine or gill. The creatures quickly broke through the roof of the room and continued until the mutants blew out of the ground into the sky. The ground began to cave into basement level areas of the base. Zero began to dodge rocks quickly, trying to limp over the elevator shaft, though too late as a large chunk of the ground smashed the floor, blocking the entrance to the shaft.
He looked around but saw no exit. The large rock wall forming from the broken rocks formed in front of him and with one strike of a large bolder, the entire wall collapsed down on to the zero. Everything quickly went black; the last thing he saw was the sun rising when the land began to fall in.
"Hm, what happened here?"
"I think they escaped."
"Do we hunt them?"
"Let them breed, let’s see how they change the world."
"Are you sure?"
"Hey someone survived! Let’s recover him!"
