Private#1PostSubject: A Vampire in the ranks   Fri Aug 18, 2017 10:48 pm

The Projects of Argatu, a place for everything that isn´t a Varanus, Projects in general are probably one of the most dangerous places on a planet with nice Population. BUT even in onethe most dangerous cities  has it´s Urban Legends, One Being in the mentioned Projects of Argatu "The Vampire of the Projects".

Cut to the present

It was one of the days were the Imperial Army tried to look at anything suitable for the Army in the town of violence and Gang Activity. Wich to be honest are always Bold tries to search here since there´s always the random escalation because there will always be the agressive ones.
But that day a Hooded Pale Woman came into one of the Recruiting Offices, ready to leave that cursed town and expand her "territory" she thought about if the Army Needs some help with the Stealth branch seeing as she did Have the ability to sneak up to kill unexpecting People when she didn´t want to spend the time luring somebody into an alleyway or her Apartment.

The projects was a den of crime on Argatu,a stain that the Imperium did well enough to hide from the public and yet due to the war with Helix the empire's police force,the Imperial Justice Forum or {I.S.F} as they are called struggle to maintain order as they are undermanned to cover the entire district bloc.


Taking advantage of the inherent violence these thugs commit on one another was something the Imperial Army took the initiative upon,they offered them amnesty and pardons for crimes,state-paid benefits common to those who served...A step up from the caste and social ladder they found themselves stuck in.


What these thugs don't know is that they would be assigned to "expendable" vanguard squads,sent headlong first to soften up the enemy before the real troops landed.Allowing the empire to hit two birds with one stone,less enemies abroad and less criminals aboard.One of these thugs was a rather pale woman...human yet different.She told the recruitment officer that she had considerable skill in positions of stealth.Much unlike her peers who seemed all muscle and show.


So the elven recruitment officer began his usual array of questions whilst providing a set of forms she had to fill out.


The forms read:


Name & Surname:

Home address:


Former occupation:


Skill set:


Medical history:


And other things which was more of a personality and morality test of multiple choice.
-----------------------


During the signing the recruitment officer would ask questions like. "Why do you want to serve the Imperium?" and "what do you hope to accomplish during your service?"

The pale woman was sure she´d pass afterall everybody Needs some spys buut then she read the questions on the Survey.

First question, Easy just filling out her Name wich is :Natalie Noritska

Now with the 2nd one she started to struggle because Natalie didn´t really have a home she just went from Motel to Motel So she just Wrote N/A.

And the 3rd one.....eh still nothing to answer. Former Occupation: N/A....again 

Skill Set Now thats the question she was looking up to. but what to write and not Overflow the paper with pros.
Natalia wrote down some obvious strengths like "Silent feet" and "Great at Stealth Takedowns" but she knew she can do much more

But on the medical history part....she really did not know so she wrote:N/A

And there she was at the last two questions of "Why?" wich said much because she really didn´t know herself what she wanted "Erm...Why i want to serve for the Imperium...Because i want to represent my home in some way" and the last question "I hope to accomplish.....The ressurection of the empire that everybody feared" 

Natalia thought she made a good Impression, but she does have some struggles

The recruiter took the files and placed it in a box next to his table,a Varanus officer entered the room and took a selection of the files inside the box.

He then called out the names of the file owners to meet him in the next room.

The next room was a waiting room as clinically clean and minimalistic as possible,the chairs where hard and uncomfortable and the brochures on glasslike coffee table where nothing more then small introductions to the various branches of the Imperial Army.

After a few boring minutes the reptilian officer returned and called out the names one by one to show that they are present.

"Welcome to the Argatu Projects Recruitment hall...You will undergo a series of tests to measure if you are fit for active duty in the Imperial Army.We have already placed you in certain branches we believe your skills would benefit best upon...Now as I call out your names please proceed to the marked door behind me to enter the training room."

He breathed and hissed the names.

"Kowell,James"

"Westly,Chris"

"Ubera,Klass"

"Noritska,Natalie"

"Samson,Susan"

The officer then followed the last one into the training hall.

The hall led underground to a vast maze of training rooms.The entry room had a table built into the wall that carried multicoloured arm banners.Each trainee was given a armband and told to approuch the first set of doors that apparently led to start of the course.A observation post hanged from the roof where the Varanus would carefully evaluate the trainees with strict judgement.Even if these scum where to end up being cannon fodder they would still be trained Imperial cannon fodder,the Varanus really took pride in their military thanks to their traditions.A standard that makes any Imperial soldier a formidable foe.

The Legate in charge of the Projects recruitment program had little faith in the criminal scum,but reluctantly agreed that the added manpower for the Helix Campaign was needed.

"Trainees prepare"

"3"

"2"

"GO"

The doors opened to a gauntlet of physical obstacles aimed at measuring the strength and agility of members as well as their stamina.The course was timed and only the best would actually make it into more respectful regiments...the others will be thrown away in vanguard units.

Natalie was ready to do anything what this scrimmage Held, but she was dissapointed when it was just when it was a Standard parkour Course "How is this supposed to determine the best recruit?"
Well that isn´t her Problem right now she just has to do this stupid parkour.

First obstacle were really just some Hurdles on a track, and of course natalie had enough experience and some sort of skills to clear the hurdles with ease. When she did get past she heard the Sound of Things crashing onto the Floor followed up with an OH SHIT. But Natalie just sighed seeing as that one recruit was dumber than a pile of bricks.

Second a treadmill. Wait what? a treadmill is what they´ve got to meassure somebodys Stamina? Natalie felt cocky about it for like 30 seconds where she then got tired froom running at a fast pace for more than 30 seconds.

And lastly a punching bag...Yup out here the measurements struggle real hard. And for Natalies last part of the test she just kinda ran by the Punching bag and clotheslined it wich maybe wasn´t enough to knock somebody out but more to just Lay them out then stab them while they`re down

First she was and now it seemed Natalie was way better than the other recruits so she looked over to the Entrance lifted her arms and shouted "WHAT NOW?"

"Good proceed to the firing range." The intercom would say.

"You know this isn't a normal human Legate...." The balding human scientist would say.

"I know..." The legate would reply,dressed in a uniform that was both armour and ceremonial.

"Biometric scans clearly shows blood pressure and heartrate levels way beyond...."

"Yessss....I know."

The firing course was like most,a range with metallic targets and a selection of standard E.I.C rifles with lethal rounds. The Empire knew most of these criminals already had experience with fire-arms and would skip the usual safety procedure considering they where after all considered 'expendable'. Once the other recruits caught up with Natalie the intercom spoke again.

"Each one of you pick a booth and familiarize yourself with your weapon. The Elnre Industries Carbine is a all purpose ballistic rifle chambering standard 5.56×45mm rounds,it's not a fancy weapon like that the legion uses but it get's the job done all the same....Right now we will be testing your accuracy,gun handling and trigger discipline...Several targets will appear at randomized intervals resembling robotic figures armed with weapons....Those are enemies....Others will appear as unarmed organic civilians...Shoot one and you will be disqualified from the recruitment board ELIMINATE ALL ARMED HOSTILES....You have seven minutes to prepare yourselves."

What the recruiter did not say is that a single target will actually be a armed civilian "the secret shot" to test the individuals sense of rapid decision making....This target in all regards was a enemy and would appear right in the most chaotic moment of the target exchange...All for the purpose of forcing a rash decision or disappearing counted as a armed target.

"Recruits...Ready your weapons....."

An sinister voice would overtake the intercom as the legate began the countdown.

"Begin test in 3.....2......1"

The targets raised.....

Natalie observed the gun given to her by the Training staff, it really was nothing mutch just some Standard automatic rifle. But now the Targets sprung up and Natalie was ready to prove the fact that she´s the ace of this draftclass.

Well maybe Natalie Rode her high horse a bit too much because she only went 11/15 and while she was thinking to herself "Dammit how did i iss the easy ones..." But her thought got interrupted by another recruit yelling "15/15 WOO SUCK IT" followed up with another recruit responding in the same Level of yelling "MAN SHUTUP I WENT 15/15 TOO YOU AINT SPECIAL" wich just caused Natalie to speak her own opinion "YOU BOTH SHUT UP THIS DON`T MATTER THE END MATTERS"

"All impressive scores Legate...Save several"


"Indeed,we shall see how they perform in the next few tests"


Like before this recruitment program differed from most Imperial military training schemes,skipping the process of resocialization,mental conditioning and other key aspects practiced by most other Imperial branches.


The recruits may not have noticed it yet but their physical and mental status was being monitored deeply by certain scientists working alongside the Legate who seemed eager to deploy a band of killers unto the Helix Front.


"Well done recruits,proceed to the highlighted door to your left....Keep your rifles with you." The recruiters wanted to single out the most erratic killers that would turn on their comrades in times of stress....They understood their mentality of survival but needed to shape that into a tool they could use to enforce discipline and co-operation with the other 'Penalists' in their battalion. The next few tests was sure to indulge on some form of stress.


The next course was a large maze-like room cloaked in dim darkness,there was several robotic drones hovering around the maze in what seemed to be a patrol mode with bright lights being emitted in front of them.The entrance to the maze had several doors all which was blocked by some kind of forcefield.


"Welcome recruits....The following course is to test your cunning and stealth for situations when the empire has to employ deceit.....The maze room ahead of you has four paths leading to the exit,two of these paths lead to doom whilst one leads back to the entrance,there are small subtle indicators in the form of encrypted symbols that showcase if you are on track or not.However these symbols are invisible and can only be lit by a tool that will be given to you,the catch is that this tool is also a homing beacon for the drones that patrol the maze...Should you fall within sight of their lights they will emit non-lethal shocks that will disqualify you from the program.You carry with you your rifles and a set of heavy gear that will be needed for the next course,this includes a 5 kilogram backpack and a bandoleer of magazine clips.Take all the time you need to finish the course but note that the maze paths change location every 30 minutes and the drones change patrol sequence every 15 minutes.The test will conclude when all recruits either pass or fail....Good luck.


An uniformed officer gave out the gear to the recruits and waited until they all finished equipping it.Then he told them all to pick a door and wait for his signal.


"Ready........GO!" He yelled causing some of the recruits to run into the darkness without hesitation.


The maze was dark and the hum of the drones could be heard across the many conflicting corridors,in the first few minutes one could hear a distant zap and the screams of one of the recruits who in his dumb luck and haste ran into one of the drones.

Natalie snickered to herself because now she´s gonna be able to Show her strength of becoming one with the shadows while the others struggled to stay undetected so she looked straight at the Camera and just got a Little bit of trashtalk in:"Now if y´all weren´t sure if i was number one try to Keep track now" And right after that it was like she dissapeared in the shadows although she only stepped like 5 steps there was no track of her and just after mearly 5 to 10 minutes she came out at the other end of the maze then looked up at another security camera and said with a smirk on her face "And? did i prove im the greatest y´all have ever seen?"

"Very impressive...that recruit is the anomoly?"

"Yes my lord....9.8 minutes a new record....."

"Indeed....Prepare the next test....."

Only 2 of the other recruits made it to the exit of the maze almost half a hour later,the others having been disqualified by the drones that still patrol within.

"Well done recruits.....Please proceed to the next door" A set of double doors opened sideways revealing a large simulated urban centre

The intercom spoke again this time with another voice more direct then the tester that talked before.

"Before you is a reconstructed replica of part of the projects urban landscape.Within is a team of assassin droids waiting to ambush you....Your objective is to place the explosive charges contained within your packs on the centre statue that is...say...an enemy communications beacon.....Shouldn't be hard for your talents....however the droids are using live ammunation like yourselves and unlike your squad they do not have wounded...

"Wounded...You daft we fin...." One of the recruits said with a smug that was suddenly turned into a painful grin as the unimaginable happened.

Suddenly one of the recruit's packs explodes causing him to fall wounded and bleeding as sharpnel clings in his shoulder.

"It seems one of yours had the faulty charge....Within the plaza square is a medical kit.....You have about....4 minutes before your comrade bleeds out....Take care of each other and you will be able to complete the objective......If you die....Consider yourself disqualified.

Natalie Just looked at the now wounded teammate and slowly shook her head with a face of dissapointment and said:"Really? You just had to jinx it?" and the thug on the Floor responded while groaning in pain:"Shut yo dumb ass up! they woulda exploded that ish anyway! Im sure you oughta been blown to pieces" Then the other thug responded who was not dieing on the Floor:"Maan y´all should get yo dumbasses moving i just wanna go join the army to get outta this place." Natalie then rolled her eyes and responded "Ugh...fine, but im not doing this for y´all im doing this for me"

And so Natalie disappeared into the shadows Scouting the Plaza while the other thug got into Position. on Thing was sure this Task will be the end

Something stirred in the shadows of the empty buildings,the mechanical cling of metal silently echoed across the city,then for a few brief seconds a droid ran into the open and melded back in the shadows of the urban alleyways.The machines seemed set in defending a mock statue of some alien figure.The fake communications device was built into it...The target that needed to be destroyed with the charges.Then she heard it...A clang in the darkness near her.


Then something moved close to Natalie's position and with little warning a metallic hand of serrated claws burst out of the shadows trying to gut her.The droid was quick but whenever Natalie would try to raise her weapon to fire at it,it would retreat back into the shadows.

Distant gunfire made it clear that the thugs where already engaged with some of the droids.The machines where remotely controlled by the Shadows of Kumaktole,the secret order of Varanus assassins....The record Natalie had set made her a candidate for another group,one outside the Imperial Army.

The droid kept it's hit and run tactics waiting for a moment to strike at a vulnerable vein to cause it's target to bleed profusely.

Although admitably she did get got real good by this Assassin Robot, and so she started to Analyse Her opponents Body to look for some sort of weak links but right before she could start looking The Robot came at her with an Uppercut wich Natalie saw comming and Gave the Robot a Left hook. The Robot did fall down but then it instantly rolled onto it´s feet and into the shadows and there it clicked in natalies head and started smirking "Oh i see you you aren´t Slick you want to do the Kitten tactic Of a Hit and run Well Go on then HIT ME!" Natalie then threw her arms out to mock the Robot assassin.

And maybe it worked maybe it didn´t since the Robot instantly charged at her again with it´s Claws scraping Her sides wich Really pissed her off that a Noname Scratched her so she Tackled the Robot and Mounted it, Now she´s reaching for her 2 sais wich she smuggled into the Recruiting Programm and started Mercilessley Marauding the Robots Body with oil Dripping down the Rafters and down Her Hands while she taunted the Robot more by shouting "Oh so you thought interrupting the Recruiting of the best Prospect the empire has evr seen finna be a breeze? WELL LOOK AT YOU NOW HOW DID IT GO FOR YOU!?"

The recruit was quick and surprised the droid,it was able to inflict a light wound of the recruit but not enough to cause profuse bleeding.It mocked the droid and seemed boastful...Smart...The pilot took the bait and charged.

She quickly tackled the droid and mounted it's back,it pulled out two sais blades that somehow made it past the recruiter inspection and started stabbing wildly into the droid,green oils would drip from the holes in the chassis and soon enough the droid fell with a metallic clang against the floor.

The Legate's eyes widened. "Interesting...."

Another Varanus stood in the shadows,annoyed that his droid was disabled.

"Very interesting indeed Legate.....This recruit is different."

The legate turned to meet his kin clad in black robes as dark as the night. "She will be a fine addition to the 9th Argatu Penal Legion." 

The shadow laughed. "I feel her talents lie with Intelligence Service...."

The legate was taken aback. "Why not with yours?"

The shadow shook his head. "We do not recruit Zodarrin remember...The Shadows of Kumaktole will watch this one but her talents will remain wasted with a military force like the Penal Legions.

The Legate turned back to the view port. "We shall see."

One of the thugs took the opportunity to run towards the comm beacon they needed to destroy with the charges.Halfway a droid jumped out a dark alleyway and it's blade opened his throat,the thug went down chocking on his own blood.The droid then turned to engage Natalie pulling out a marksman rifle and firing a series of bursts aimed at her core.

Natalie rolled her eyes and threw her arms out:"Heey Marquis you´re supposed to Not die you Cunt!"

She woulda loved to mock the fellow recruit some more but right now she had that Rusty Can being a Problem, and she instantly ran around on the Rafters dodging the Barrage of Bullets by the Robot, but she couldn´t run further since she reached a deadend so she jumped off and onto the Floor then instantly dissappeared into the shadows making the Robot lose sights.

She whistled while circling around the Robot "Welp...Where did attacking the Recruiting proccess bring you? im sure you´re pretty much screwed right now, and i´m not meaning those rusty screws somebody wasted on you"
Just before the Robot used some sort of Technological Voodoo she Sunk her teeth into the robots "Throat" But then instantly after she started to drink she backed away in disgust as it turned out to be a not so great idea.
