Issue 38 - Shape of Things to Come

Alphy created a trip wire bomb disguised as a backpack after one failed attempt in creating which resulted in blowing himself up.

Catherine asks Joseph Waters to build her a poisonous canisters. Joseph refused, while Catherine pushed further by trying to seduce him, Joseph responded with insults. Catherine punched him, but Joseph’s body adjusted to his opponent hardening his body to pain, her blow was had no effect.

A few hours later, angered by Joseph’s actions against her, tried to lock pick Joseph’s room door. After breaking her lock in the door, she heard someone heading down the hall towards her direction. Morphing into a security personnel she walked past Cynthia in the hall. The rebellion operative identified Catherine. Curious, Catherine morphed back and asked Cynthia how she knew, all the operative got was a smirk, and “I have my ways.”

Heading to the tech lab, Catherine tried to convince Patrickto build her the gas canister technology, but was interrupted by Alphy. Alphy requested a blueprint of the camouflage van, and ordered the young man back to work.

Volunteering to create Catherine’s idea, he approached Joseph Waters to co-develop it, but Joseph, who already finished the design of a very similar idea decided he would give Alphy this tech if he promised not to share it with Catherine.

Shamus spent some time in Joseph Waters room while he worked.

Alphy received a call from a Seer operative to meet at an airfield.

Arriving Alpha Squad notes that the old meeting location, an abandoned car part factory, was within view of the airfield.

Driving up with Shamus’ van, Alphy leaves a clone in the van, and walks out with his backpack.
Alphy is pat down by Seer soldiers. Alphy notices a glint in Vase’s eyes, and he orders his subordinate to remove his backpack. Alphy while removing pretending to remove the backpack, he threw it into the crowd of Seers while pulling the trip wire.

Catherine notices laser sights aimed at the rest of the group. Joseph Waters, targeting the priestfor his body to adapt to, erects a force field around the van which deflects the sniper fire. Vas leaps at Alphy through the destruction with a bowie knife, while his subordinates attempt to focus fire him down. The van begins to move by itself heading the brick wall of a hangar.

Shamus regained control of the van and barrels it towards Vas Bruncek. Wrapping his force-field around himself, Joseph leaped out of the moving vehicle. As the force-field dissipated the sniper rifle hit the explosives in the van, forcing Catherine and Shamus to roll out of the car. The car door hit Catherine while she leaped out, her arm snapped as the car door hit her, and as she landed she broke three ribs, Alphy’s clone incinerated.

Alphy creates clones which dispatch the Seer normal ground forces. Shamus fires a blast of flame at the priest which brushed against his skin like a the wind on a stormy day. Alphy’s clones take care of the Seer soldiers, while Catherine threw a grenade destroying the last of Vase’s subordinates.

Shamus threw ice shrapnel at the priest, hitting him in the face, cutting the holy man’s lip, making him spit out blood. The priest’s skin began to crack with red energy until it exploded out of him, damaging most of Alpha Squad, incinerating Alphy’s clones, and knocking Catherine through a hangar, knocking her unconscious.

Lifting himself off the ground, Shamus fired a final ball of ice, hitting the priest in the throat, damaging his wind pipe. As Vase turned his back to Alphy to fire at Shamus, Alphy and his clones attack the Seer commander from behind knocking slamming him in the back of the head, disorienting him. Then as a combined effort, Alphy’s clones slammed into him, breaking the Seer leader’s body in one fluid motion.

The priest, on the ground and struggling to breath, called Shamus over to him. The holy man put a crucifix in the Irish soldier’s hands, and said, “Take care of my children.”

Vase reached out to Alphy, grabbed his hand. Alphy’s head filled with a vision, of him standing in the barren ruins of Boston, sounds of battle coming from a distance, and the bodies of his companions all around him. Vase’s final words were, “Prepare, prepare for the Day of Dawn.”

Alphy searched Vase’s body, finding a lamenated badge of a Soviet Army General, and a trigger.
Aidan arrived with bloody blades, and Catherine over his shoulder. Aidan had dispatched of the telekinetics that had been using their abilities to act as snipers.

Alphy set off the trigger which resulted in the abandoned factory, and the hangars to explode.
