Ghosts (Project Pantheon)

Ghosts

What makes someone human? Is it the moral compass that guides us through life? Or is it the conscious that tells us right from wrong? Some men lose this and become a hollow shell of what they once were, others are born without it. But without that moral without the force that makes us who we are, we are all but ghosts walking the galaxy until we find out who we really are. We can remain the cold dying husks of what we once were or we can move forward and become something new. Become human and learn to live again, but for some reclaiming that road is harder than it seems. So we must push through the black of night to see what we are truly made of, and only through that we become human.

Silence, the calm and dead of night radiated from the planet Ossentrion. It was a peaceful night, everything was calm and at ease on the planets surface. Well all except for one thing, Project Pantheon's Czars had been called to recon the planet, sweep and gather precise intel for the imperial data bank if they ever decided to invade the system. An easy job for the sons of the galactic empire, this was a mission that required stealth and the ability to go unseen. This would test the Czars ability to adapt and overcome the situation no matter what it threw at them. They were trained to be the best, trained to kill and destroy what they came across. But this would be a test of their intellect and ability to think, and hopefully they would come through for them.

The Ossentrion capital building, home to the governments plan's research and other information that the IIB would find most useful if ever war came to the planet. The team of Czars were dropped off in a nearby lake by the building to mask their hear signature if the facility had such sensors. Their suits gave them twenty minutes of oxygen that's all the time they had to formulate a plan and execute it. The use of lethal force was authorized and if need be they could terminate anything that got in their way, hopefully that would only pertain to the occasional guard that got in their way. But a full blown fire fight would only prove that they were only good for the front lines of combat. This was a job generally gifted to agents, but since the program was on the rise they needed to be tested on all ways of war. They would move in the building gathering what needed to collected. In and out, like a shadow in the night. Like ghosts

Dropping into the lake Rolland was first off the transport, making a soft splash as he entered the water he sunk to the bottom due to his immense weight. His armor provided him air and now he had to wait for his brothers to follow behind him. "Overlord this is Hellboy 2 boots on the ground. How copy over" he spoke into his comm unit ready to begin the mission, this was their duty and Rolland didn't understand sending augmented super men on a stealth mission but they would only prove the the empire that they were worthy of it, that they were worthy of all walks of combat. The voice on the radio crackled and responded to Rolland "Good copy over, good will hunting. Overlord out" the water cooled and flowed past his armor, it was almost peaceful even.

Serenity Is what he felt at this moment, the peace of the water it's calm current running past him. "Brothers, we need to infiltrate and gather all the data we can. Once we have succeeded we planet a bomb and propaganda of a known terrorist organization to cover out tracks." he said coldly and calmly over his comm unit to the other Czars with him. "Report in" he had to get a head count for accountability before proceeding onward. But they didn't have all day, the oxygen in their suits wouldn't last all day.

"Zero Three active and ready." Northstar said into his com, then without command sent his Force Shadow forward. Moving along the coastline he took count of enemies. There were roughly 10 patrols nearby, all armed, but none capable of taking out the Czar warriors, "There are patrols nearby, if we move silently we can avoid detection."

"Solid copy, Zero two three and four mobilizing. Zero One if you can hear us catch up and get here" Rolland looked over to the two new Czars and shook his head, they looked fresh. Their armor still new and unscathed. "Here's the plan, patrols radio check every fourty minutes. We move in, eliminate the patrol over by the back entrance and take their comm frequencies. it gives us a solid thirty minutes to gather what we need fifteen minutes to plant the bomb then get out. Patrols run in teams of ten, so I need one of you to stay back and provide guardian angel and QRF if the need arises." the Czar was cold and emotionless as he spoke, he would do whatever it took to get this job done and make his mother proud.

"Let's get it done Czars." Rolland moved through the water stepping and walking at the bottom looking for his fellow brethren to follow. This mission was important, this mission could save lives. Printed on the visor of Rolland's helmet was a skull of a man, he was a headhunter a dealer of death on the battlefield. Now it was time to see if he could make the transition to other aspects of combat. "If you have any ideas on how to take them out now is a good time."

As Northstar moved the others would find it astonishing, for the speed was superb. Beyond even a basic Czar, for he used his Alter abilities combined with the man's knowledge in physics to shift the currents of water around himself. Basically he created a water propeller behind him.

Once he touched land Northstar moved slowly forward in a crouch, as he moved Northstar concentrated on the image of his DL-44 Blaster that he stashed in his left hip pocket. Soon enough he felt the appropriate weight fall in place, and after taking a long slow breath he drew the pistol. Dimension shifting was a difficult skill, despite how useful.

Keeping the Blaster at the ready, Zero Three waited for his allies to reach the ground. When they neared, he continued on with a slow but sure pace, his eyes scanning the area about themselves. "The nearest patrol is to the south, about 10 yards, behind that low wall there."

Varanin moved quickly, seeking to move as fast as the Anzati, but couldn't reach the same speed. But that wasn't to say he didn't rocket across the floor bed, fast enough that he skid to a stop to the west of Northstar Zero Three, "Zero Three you should take to the rooftops, be our eyes from all angles. My Shadow isn't anything compared to yours." He whispered into his comlink.

Reaching over his shoulder, Varanin gripped the Blaster Sniper Rifle and began seeking any whom neared.

Jerrick waited up in a position where he could see them, "Miss me? Sorry I was off doing Shado things." Rolland knew what he ment. "What's the sit rep? More Czars??!! Hiii!!" He said being his usual self. @[member="Rolland CZ M1 002"]

"Shut up Zero One." Rolland said to @[member="JerrickShado"] "Just follow us and we can talk on the ride back" Rolland missed Jerrick honestly but they were in the middle of a mission that required stealth, not the normal blasters raging and tank flipping. Walking out of gbd water slowly Rolland looked for Jerrick to follow him to take out the squad of men providing rear security of the compound. "Zero Three and Four, take out the five on the right. One and I have the left. Suppressed fire only." the Czars were hidden in the tree line near the lake, it would serve the purpose of taking out the platoon of men without them being seen. "On my mark."

Only ten meteres away from the target Rolland unaligned his IAS smart rifle with a rather large suppressor on the barrel he took aim at the three men he was marked to kill. This would require precision timing and cooperation on all parts, even Shado would need to pull the trigger on this one. Rolland had no doubt that @[member="Xavier Varanin"] and @[member="Northstar"] could pull the trigger, they were now his brothers. Which meant they had tangled and trained with the best of them. It would be nice to get to know them later, normally Rolland had trouble talking to people who werent other Czars.

"Mark." Rolland took aim and fired three slugs at three targets in the heads over the course of a few seconds, his targets dropped to the ground dead with a pink mist of blood and brains spraying out the back of their heads. Hopefully everyone else had dropped their targets as well and the mission wasn't busted from the start.

Northstar nodded his acknowledgement to Jerrick, then moved away as soon as the orders were given. Lining up a quick shot, then another followed swiftly by a third, Northstar dropped every one of his men from the tree...with a blaster...pistol. The men he moved with all had the same talents as he when it came to Czar-hood, but he was not like them other than that aspect. He was the kind to have 300+ contingency plans for a single man's death, just in case the first one failed.

"Zero Two, Zero Three here. I'm going to take the high roads. Need anyone else killed let me know." As he walked, Northstar lightly tossed his DL-44 to Varanin as he passed, in exchange he grabbed the barrel of the sniper and tookthe gun along with him. Looping himself inside the strap, Northstar began to scale the side of the nearest building. It took moments and he was topside, Sniper crosshairs settling on his allies as he watched them move.

His command was given, and though he hated following another's orders, he launched into movement. After he lined up his sniper rifle and let loose three silenced shots, he turned to begin walking back the way he came. He noticed Zero Three had yet to even take but a few steps away from the tree. Glancing over his shoulder he spotted no living patrols and realized he must have killed them all already.

Next thing Varanin knew there was a Blaster Pistol launched at him, then his own sniper was taken from him. He growled at that, but again chose to remain silent.

Jerrick rushed the squad, snapping the first guys neck, and disarming the next two. He threw them at Rollan, and pounced on the last guy with his vibrosword. Piercing his jugular with it, he turned around back to Rolland. He had do this all with extreme speed, and confidence he had stayed undetected by anyone else. "Come on stone cold, what's next?" He joked. @[member="Rolland CZ M1 002"]

Rolland grabbed the two alien men by their necks and squeezed crushing their wind pipes and killing them quickly and queitly before they could make a sound. Jerrick was busy with his sword play killing the rest, the back door was clear and now all that was left was to get in, get the intel and get out for extraction. Walking forward Rolland dragged the two aliens bodies throwing them into the nearby bushes. "Zero three take care of the bodies, the rest of us move in and go to work." the hulking super soldier walked into the building opening the sliding door so they could get inside.

Once inside there were steps that needed to be taken to keep themselves hidden, "Zero Four, Zero One, let's go." grabbing his rifle he snapped it up to the ready and began to move down the halls of the building. "activate your jamers." Looking down to his belt Rolland pushed a button sending out a signal to make security cameras go on the fritz when they walked past, project pantheon always made sure their children had the best toys needed to complete the mission, and in this case the mission was to get to the control room of the building to download any vital data.

"Control room is half a click down the halls lets move." continuing his movement down the hallway he kept an aware mindset to be sure they wouldn't be caught. This would save the empire months of undercover work and digging. They could have everything at once and Rolland intended to deliver it to them as ordered. More of a machine than a man now the Czar was ready to fight and prove he was worthy or the title, that he was worthy of being called a Czar. A king

Northstar stood atop the roof, hands extended outward for a long moment. Utterly silent, yet some how still fear instilling. Then suddenly a silence hit. The calm was not unidentified though, for Northstar now guided the movement of plants nearby. Slowly vines and growth began to protrude from their regular positions to cover the men. It was a simple trick, simply applying nutrients to the plants to help them grow slightly more elastic, then using the winds to shift the coverage, lastly continuing the winds while removing moisture from the plants.

Together the effects would entirely hide the bodies. Tapping his comlink Northstar murmured, "Complete." Keeping simple and to the point was essential, for wasting time in the field could get one killed.

Setting the sniper on it's tri-pod, Northstar lined the scope up with the building. Switching to infra-red was a quick decision, for how do you follow someone you don't see? But he could see them, and thus he saw a man whom crept up behind and to the left of Rolland. Three silent shots rang loose - flying straight through a closed window - and the enemy dropped. His head now perfect for bowling.

Slowly Varanin moved, slow for a Czar anyway - which was still the average jogging speed of an adult human. With the blaster in his left hand, and his right arm supporting his left, Zero Four moved through the compound. Generally speaking, being in close quarters such as this was the perfect reason to not use Blasters - they're not capable of being silenced without a complete loss of lethality. But this didn't stop the Czar, no, Varanin was adaptable. He would survive at all costs, just like his original form has continued to do.

The clone stumbled across a room full of guards, whom all had their faces cast downwards towards their table. Silently approaching with his barrel aimed true, Varanin slowly exhaled...

"Sup guys." With that being said, 12 shots rang free from the barrel of the beautiful gun he held. Multiple shots reached each target before any had enough time to really react. The fastest man lay stretched across the ground, feet near the table with his arm stretched towards his weapons.
