John Harris, ex Army Ranger, was working another late night at Whitestone Aquaponics farm. After leaving the service he'd gone back to school and ended up with Skell as lead engineer on the project. It was a nice change to try and solve problems rather than just trying to establish basic security.


Since the emergence of the terrorist threat against Skell facilities he'd taken to keeping a sidearm close by and as Skell security forces had rolled into the Farm grounds tonight he'd decided he'd best arm himself. Reassuring his assistant Yukari he headed down to speak with the patrol leader leaving Yukari in the company of a heavily armed Sentinel trooper. He recognized the man as one of his profession who'd gone onto private military contracting. He knew a few in that profession and had very mixed feelings about those who fought for money. He hadn't been overly impressed with the men he'd since in Sentinel uniforms so far. He got little from the Sentinel team other than a brusque "stay out of our way". Returning through the lobby he saw all the monitors had been taken over by Sentinel pronouncements and a declaration of martial law.

It was about then that he heard Yukari's scream. Taking the stairs two at a time his reaction to seeing the Sentinel trooper trying to wrist tie Yukari was swift and unfortunately fatal. Yukari was in shock looking at the monitor "I'm sorry, but I know her. I must have said something because he immediately wanted to arrest me." Harris looked at the monitor and turned to Yukari "tell no one else what you just said. You walked in and I was already engaged in a scuffle, you don't know why. That is all you tell them."

Hearing movement on the stairs he quickly took down that trooper as well. Then he heard the commotion from the admin office. Drawing his pistol as he approached the door he caught a glimpse of a trooper pointing his rifle at one of his people. He pulled the trigger without a second thought.

Returning to the stairwell he took up position as additional Sentinel troopers attempted to force their way into the building. Grabbing a grenade from one of those he had shot, he cleared the lobby of any remaining enemy.

Exiting the building he quickly shot two more men not expecting to see an armed enemy coming toward them. Racing around to the rear he vaulted a back wall then circled around to catch the rest of the team rushing to the sounds of gunfire.

When the response team finally burst onto his office floor, Harris was already in the wind. It was 7 kilometers to his place in Rigel District through swampland. He couldn't risk checkpoint alerts so it was gonna have to be on foot at night in the rain. Life sucked, but he was a ranger. He knew it was risky, but he had gear still from his Ranger days he was gonna need.

Evading Sentinel search and response teams was easy enough, but he needed some intel. When he came across a Sentinel trooper interrogating a local it was an opportunity he could not pass up.

After taking out the trooper he monitored the radio channel. Seems things were quite confused, they had swallowed Yukari's story but that only led them down a rabbit hole of trying to figure out what happened. His ranger record had come up quickly in his employees file and some assumptions were being made of a possible personal tie in. It was all bullsh*t but they were grasping. Good at least his people weren't suspect. Time to get going.

By 1:30am he had reached Summer's Homestead on the far end of the swamp. He stopped briefly to exchange information, get some water and quickly moved on reaching Antares at dawn. His friend ran a combo bar/coffee shop and would be setting up. First however he needed to take out a Sentinel comms guy.

His buddy tied him in with someone who said they "might" have resistance contacts. At this point it seemed his only option. With martial law in effect, his killing of a Sentinel patrol was a death sentence. They told him to hit the Canopus soccer field and look for a dead drop. After that he was in resistance hands. Before that however he wanted to grab his gear from his Rigel residence and that might be tricky. He hoped his new partner was not around for either Sentinel or for Harris to try and explain himself. They weren't that close.

Rigel was covered with both a police drone presence and Sentinel units going house by house. Fortunately it looked like they had tossed his place already. He was able to grab his gear and slip out without even waking Monica. He felt a bit sorry for that, she'd likely been up most of the night with pissed off Sentinel people interrogating her.

At Canopus he found the dead drop directing him to a Vega residence. That turned out to be a false address and it was a bit of trying to stay hidden while looking for a clue before he was approached by a contact. She took him over to the resistance safe house and gave him the resistance demands- he'd have to prove himself before he would be admitted into the ranks. She had a change of clothes for him and a new ID. The job was to hit a Skell facility, eliminate a Sentinel informant and blast the place to hell as a warning. If necessary, he was to eliminate whatever Sentinel troops were on site but that was not a requirement.

Proving a point
The following morning Harris showed up in the delivery truck and the Sentinel troops seemed to expect him. They didn't even bother with a search. Stepping behind the truck out of view of any patrols he eliminated the first guard then methodically started taking out all the sentries. He was out to prove a point to the resistance. The informant was sitting out in the open with no idea there was even an imminent threat. It was pitiful. He planted the explosives, blew the building and left in the truck he'd arrived in.

The Raid
Apparently the resistance leadership was satisfied with his performance. He was passed along to another resistance safe house that seemed to be more of an operational unit. He was given a day to sort himself out and then given a new mission.

The names were probably fake. They met up at a resistance camp site near to their target. Both had apparently some mission experience under their belt. Aleesha was team lead but Harris clearly had far more operational combat experience and they would defer to his judgement. The plan was simple. They would come in from 3 sides. Harris would initiate action once they had gotten some perspective on numbers and patrol patterns. Once all there were in position, they reported in. They spent a good hour observing, Harris could tell they were getting itchy, but he wanted no surprises. If the action started to go south both Aleesha and LeeAnn were to rendezvous immediately back to the camp. Harris would perform rearguard.

Once he felt comfortable with the guard routines, Harris initiated action taking out two guards at his position. Moving back out of the building and vaulting the adjacent wall he found a good cover position to observe and be able to move to the next building. He radioed Aleesha that a pair of sentries were headed her way. She confirmed while also taking out a sentry at her position, then proceeded to eliminate the other pair.

Meanwhile LeeAnn took out a guard at her location then warned Harris of another pair crossing the yard.

He warned her off from confronting them, he would take them out from behind. With all Sentinel patrols eliminated the team grabbed the intel that had been their target and left the scene. Harris was favorably impressed with their performance; they had been an efficient no nonsense team.

There aren’t any. Those are the same character just edited. A little slight of hand :cool: am experimenting with stuff one can do or the illusions that can be created in solo play.

This is pretty good ! A great idea of how to tell a story. Also I like how one of the characters looks like Jacob Seed ;)

Harris's work with the outcasts settled into a routine. He was assigned to an operations unit. Missions consisted of assisting teams grabbing Skell tech and information, freeing people caught in Skell patrols, providing overwatch for observation and recon teams and combining those efforts with basic weapons training. All while evading enemy surveillance. Really not much different than other operations he'd been assigned to in his career.

After a few weeks he was approached with a new mission. Word had filtered back about a security station in the Parliament building. Seems since Sentinel had closed Parliament, they'd stopped utilizing it and the facility seemed to have dropped off their radar. The mission would consist of two phases. First was to penetrate the security in Liberty and assess the state of the security office. If it seemed functional he would be briefed on phase 2.

Harris decided to increase his odds of success by outfitting himself as close as possible as a Sentinel Commander. That might give him a few moments edge before Sentinel guards could react.

The mission went smoothly and in the debrief, phase 2 was launched. Harris was to grab a high ranking Sentinel commander, get him into parliament to hack the station access equipment and if possible deliver him to an outcast safehouse outside Liberty...yeah this was gonna be tough. Subtlety was most likely not gonna be an option. Once he had the commander he'd have to move fast and hard.

Grabbing the target was just a matter of taking out the perimeter guards, flashbanging the commander and dumping him into a car. That was the easy part. Harris figured the best option now was to get him to the terminal as fast as possible and then back out before Sentinel could react. The plan was simple and likely suicidal. Drive right into the Parliament lobby, get him logged in then drive out.
