Midnight. A convoy of three German made Boxer APC's were making their way through the winding mountain roads of rural China, towards a remote mining village with a medical research facility. The rugged vehicles toughed it through the howling snow storm, making good time on their trip.

Inside one of the APC's, a squadron of four black armored Templar sat on one side of the transport, opposite mercenary auxiliaries. Rosa sighed as their APC trundled along the Chinese count road. Climate change meant snows had lingered even into mid april.

5 years of hard training. There were so many crises in the world now, problems where they could make a difference. Terrorism. Metahuman violence. Oppression and Tyranny. Instead, Rosa let out a melancholy sigh, as they were transported to a “job” alongside mercenaries.

“We may be going to China, but there are no dragons to slay there, Axe Knight.” Rosa's seatmate, a pale platinum blonde of a young man teased her. Klaus his name was, the son of a German energy baron. He manifested his talents much earlier in life than Rosa, and therefore had this superior smugness in his tone and face. A smugness Rosa has wanted to remove. With his fists.

She sneered at the alias she'd been given. Where most of these noble born Templar wielded rapiers or longswords as their side arms, she had chosen a Dane axe, a large and brutal weapon. “If you can read my mind so well Klaus... we should be using our powers for good. Honorably. To defend the innocent! Tyrants murder their own people, monsters stalk the wilds, metahumans plot to overthrow governments. Not this... hushed mercenary work for some private corporation.”

"...You should stop listening to Bohemond, Rosa. You're starting to talk like him." Her two other Templar squadmates, a pair of female twins, offer her a comforting pat on the shoulder. They carried smaller daggers, but also bore powerful long rifles. These were the Templar Hunters- who used their power with psionic armaments.

She shot the mercenaries they rode with a derisive stare from her seat. Rosa was clearly uncomfortable with this... rabble.

= = =



Above the APC convoy a single helicopter flew ahead, serving as their eye in the sky, as well as the command center. Inside was one of the chief scientists of the facility, an older graying man wearing a thick fur coat, his hands absently swiping reports he'd read four times over. His bespectacled eyes however, were focused on the two figures before him. One was an older gentleman, hair and beard gray with age, the lines in his face showing a long and difficult life. He eyed the scientist back, his piercing stare making the academic uncomfortable.

Marshal Bohemond "The Lion" Lowenherz. An infamous figure among those in the know of German metahumans, with ties as far back as the Nazis, or so the story went. He carried a machine pistol in a side holster, as well as his own phone, keeping in touch with his Templar on the ground.

"We'll be arriving shortly, Doctor Van Mordenheim." The pilot spoke over the noise of the helicopter, into their earpieces.

"G-g-good." The scientist stammered, "G-g-g-gentlemen we'll be on the ground... ground... soon." He turned toward the second figure, one of the chief partners and investors of the project.

Cold. Dark. Groans. Ashford wasn't actually sure about that last one. Might have just been the wind.. Actually it was, but he liked to think a wraith was around and about, kept him on his toes. The first two however. He was very sure of that. Once more Ash found himself in a land he didn't know and he knew why, but the why didn't matter. He was here and it was cold. Sure, it wasn't sand, or hot. But snow, the man had decided, was just as freaking bad.

But when he wasn't complaining about those small things, it was mostly the dark that annoyed him. He already had trouble with his sight, the dark made it so he walked into many ditches. Shaking his head, Ashford sighed to himself. That was still all so small. Really, he was just happy to be away from the desert. But wherever he was now was a mystery and that needed to be solved soon. Otherwise, he might have another strange problem on his hands that he just didn't want to get into right now.

And sure enough, it seemed Dot answered his prayers. With sounds leading him onwards, giving him a sense of location and so he ran towards that sound. By the sound of it, two very loud things, or multiple, he couldn't really tell. But by the time he had made it and the road was in sight, he thought nothing of it as he jumped right into the center of the path, happy to just have the hard stone under the snow, under his feet.

But in his haste, that loud sound seemed even closer, in fact it was very much so, the large metal box right to his side, he in it's path. Much like a deer, Ashford had suddenly appeared on the road to whoever was driving, and much like a deer, he vanished under the APC when seemingly contact was made. However, rather then let himself become road kill, Ashford had quickly dived away and flattened himself to the ground so that it would pass over him, but rather then let it do just that, he dug his claws into the steel of the APC. The result left him being dragged along the snow till the large vehicle stopped, whenever that may be.

And he was mighty okay with that, be it now or later, these things had a place to go and a place to go meant he was bound to be in contact with someone which also meant he was going to get out of the cold. Right after he got rid of all the snow that was gathering around and in the collar of his coat. That was already starting to get to him.

The APC's driver barely steps on the break as Ashford suddenly came into view. The sudden stop was quite jarring, were it not for the warriors inside being strapped to their seats.

"What was that?!" Rosa banged on the driver's window.

"I... I don't know, someone just showed up in the middle of the road." The driver said, then proceeded to continue driving toward their destination. Everyone in the APC looked at each other and chambered their weapons. It was a satisfying gun lock n'load chorus.

Unfortunately for Ashford, Lenny, the male twin of the sniper-spotter duo of the Templar, possessed clairvoyance. Their uninvited guest was plain as day for him to see. The bottom escape hatch was quickly opened and Ashford came face to face with the Templar squad, the mercenaries, and their H&K assault rifles pointed at his face.

"You may not vant to make any sudden moves, ja?" He said nonchalantly.

"You vill be coming with us now, mein freund." With an iron grip, Rosa reaches for the trouble maker, intent on bringing him into the APC.

The large vehicle had stopped for a moment, but just as quickly moved on, which was good. What was really surprising however, was the hiss of something opening among the sound of the snow bashing against him and forced Ashford to move a bit to see what happened. Looking up, he found he came face to face with a squad of armored people and some more, less armored sort.

And they all carried those thing called guns. Wonderful. What was interesting was that one of them carried a mighty fine looking battle axe among other things. At first, he thought he was going to get shot, and while these things proved to be faster, him somewhat faster, he wasn't sure he could stop them this time. Yet, rather then riddled with those deadly bullets, he found a hand come towards him, owned by what was perhaps the strangest accent he had ever heard before.

But rather then resist, the one eyed man looked rather thankful, and used his bandage covered hand to grab a hold of the hand that was reaching for him, helping the woman to get himself into the metal box vehicle, his metal claws scraping along the bottom of the APC as he came inside, till finally he could bring his metal hand in. "Thank you kindly strangers. I was a little lost when your strange car almost hit me. Good thing for metal hands huh? Just glad to be out of the snow right now." Ashford announced once he was safely in the box and in a seat of some kind, be it a actual one or the floor. Not looking to perturbed by the many weapons aimed at him.

"Name's Ashford. Can call me Ash for short." Ashford felt that maybe he should at least offer his name, as uncaring he was for the guns, he knew the danger they presented, offering his name and expecting theirs was at least going to keep his and hopefully their minds off using them.

The 'facility' was not very far from where they were. It seemed like a modest looking health center, though still unusually large for such a remote and rural town. All the signs were hand-painted in chinese, faded from the weather, though the town having armed guard towers and barracks conveyed a feeling of "stay away from here."

Ashford's trip was short and quiet, with the Templar escorting him to a cold, damp cell inside the gray, boxy facility itself. They were kind enough to lend a wing to be converted into barred cells, seeing as the town lacked even a police station. Ash shared his cell with some drunk reeking of some strong drink, sleeping it off. He was of coursed, searched thoroughly for any weapons and disarmed... though the destination storage was within line of sight of the cells.

They had a window view across the hall into the common ward, but curtains afforded the patients privacy. The common ward was unusually busy tonight, which meant the ward was completely curtained off. But even here, the patients' discomfort was... audible.

Rosa had drawn the short straw among the four Templar and was relegated to minding this prisoner in the meantime. She uncuffed Ash, then gave him an ultimatum. "Until we can determine you are no threat, you vill stay here. Try not to stir any trouble... Unless you wish to be riddled vith bullet holes." She said, inspecting Ashford a bit, before receiving a message on her phone. His coat seemed inadequate for the weather, and she was not the sort to deprive an amputee a prosthetic, strange his appearance may have been.

She went to the prison cabinet and grabbed a thick wool blanket, tossed it to Ashford, and left him in the care of the facility's normal guards. Rose went to rejoin her fellows in the ward, but not before being stopped by sudden banging coming from the solitary confinement cell at the end of the hall. It was a much smaller space, sealed with a heavy steel door. The banging was followed by a hoarse wailing and moaning, definitely not an animal, but definitely inhuman.

"Vat ze hell is in there?" Rose asked the two guards stationed in the prison wing.

"Honestly? we don't ask, and we don't want to know." They replied, their accents sounding quite american. Rosa gave the cell one more look, and decided to leave quickly.

The trip was dull and somehow managed to be even colder in the strange box vehicle. But hey, he was making ground more so then he would on foot... He still wished on these people would talk to him.

Thankfully, it was short, and soon enough Ashford found himself in a cell with someone who had a little too much to drink it seemed. So now here he was, alone, kinda. Stripped of his weapons, which he would need to get back soon. Sure, he could wait for them to return to him themselves. But he was more inclined to get the rapier back before someone dumb enough killed someone else with it.

Thankfully, their location was pretty much in sight. Hidden in storage. He wondered if he should go get them now... His plan was paused when the armored woman, the one that helped him into the metal box car. Came by with a few words, a warning in sorts. Don't leave, no get shot, he'd be free to go once it was decided he wasn't dangerous. "Don't worry bout me. No way I'd get shot here." Ashford attempted to joke with the woman, perhaps only receiving silence in return, but that was okay. She wouldn't know that Ashford wasn't joking anyway.

When she was gone, and Ashford was with a source of warmth, he walked over to the drunk and threw it atop the man, before walking back to his cell bars. This facility had a few guards from what he saw, but none of them were too preoccupied with him. Most likely they didn't see him as dangerous. A mistake to the wrong people.

Taking his clawed metal hand, Ashford held two of his metal fingers together and swiped the cell in four quick motions, fast enough the human eye might have mistaken it as a strange blur of motion, but the sound of metal cutting metal was undeniable. As the metal bars fell to the ground, Ashford stepped out of his cell and walked towards the storage. Only to hear a lot of yelling in a accent he didn't even want to know where it came from.

Looking to the facility's normal guard, who had a normal looking side arm in his hands, Ashford held his own hands up, that seemed to be the move that everyone did when under threat, what the guard and his sudden friend behind him made the mistake of, was getting close to him. When he felt a hand on his metal one, Ashford twisted and grabbed the guard by the collar, before using his gripped metal arm and momentum to twist and throw the guard at the one that first called Ashford out, knocking the two to the ground.

"Sorry bout this." Ashford said as he walked over and quickly knocked the two on the head till he was sure they were passed out. Damage to their head was not a concern for him right now, but he didn't mean to kill them. Not yet at the very least. Hopefully not at all. But it wasn't long till he was reacquired with his weapons and stepped out into the hall. It seemed no other guard was aware of his... 'escape' yet.

But now that he had some time, he walked to the end of the hall, where their was banging, wailing and more banging. Something was trying to get out, and someone had put something in their that wasn't meant to come out. "Huh... I was going to leave... But now I'm curious.." Banging his own metal fist on the solitary door, he began to walk the way the armored woman went. Her squad would have answers, and if they didn't... Well. Someone would. And he'd get them eventually.
