2020.10.18 00:19 AvaAelius Zurin Arctus or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bot

The Rules

In a recent thread, there's been a lot of discussion about what exactly happened with Tiber Septim and the Numidium. I hope to make that clearer here, with one stipulation to appease people who are much too annoyed by Michael Kirkbride to consider whether or not what he says is in line with the tone, themes, and mechanics of the rest of the series. It, as such, is that I can't use any unofficial sources, that is to say no sources from anywhere but Elder Scrolls games and stories put out by Bethesda or Zenimax. To be clear, I think this is generally not a great thing to do, but I'm also not interested in continuing the years-long arguments over what canon is. So for the sake of simplicity, I'm using a more conservative limit.
That said, I think it's important to give a general understanding of what the Numidium is, what it does, why it was made, and how it had been used prior to its acquisition by Tiber Septim.

A Mushroom Cloud and a Perchance Acorn

The Mundus is, to some degree, made constant by the presence of metaphysical constructs called Towers. While much has been written about them outside official sources, their existence and the existence of their power sources(Stones) have been confirmed officially. In Aurbic Enigma 4, we're given a pretty succinct explanation of how they work. Direnni Tower established the rules for all the Mundus and its Earthbones, and the other Towers were constructed to make more stories with rules building on those set by Direnni. We're also told about an artifact, the Staff of Towers, made to resemble the rules of the Towers in one object.
Before we delve further into the Staff, I think it's important to consider first its creator, King Anumaril. According to The Whithering of Delodiil, Anumaril was the lord of the city Abargalas and pledged to Molag Bal. It was under him that a siege was to be undertaken against a rival city, Delodiil, which was pledged to Meridia. Anumaril was insulted by the lack of interest the people of Delodiil had in his temple to Molag Bal, so he went to war with Delodiil. He failed, and Abargalas was destroyed.
As worshiping Molag Bal might suggest, Anumaril and Abargalas as a whole gained prominence through domination. Renowned mercenaries populated the city. But domination seeped further into the cultural ethos of the place. Or at least, further into the heart of its lord. Anumaril was a master architect. However, it was even present in his creations, including the Staff of Towers. The Staff was split into segments which bore the stories of the Towers they mimicked, though strangely, there was one fragment that mimicked a Tower that hadn't yet been made. A brass segment was among the other pieces of the staff, for the brass Numidium who was yet to be.
Though, it's not necessarily clear that Anumaril knew about Numidium. Instead, I think it's more likely that Anumaril's combined knowledge of architecture and will to dominate led him to the same place the Dwemer would someday reach. The Aurbic Enigma is useful again here, which I will leave to its own words:
For Anumaril had hoped to convert Green-Sap into White-Gold, and thereby make the Heartlanders' realm anew. However, Anumaril did not know, and was not able to know, why his plan went awry. You see, Ayleid magic is about Will, and Shall, and Must—but under Green-Sap, all is Perchance.
Anumaril was forced to flee with many other Ayleid after Alessia's revolution, and Anumaril trusted other Ayelid with fragments of the Staff of Towers. They took them to the corners of Tamriel. Though his, the White-Gold fragment, was taken with him to Valenwood, where he chose to flee. His goal, as stated in the Enigma, was to force reality to grant him his homeland again, how he wanted it. Where he was at the top. To transcend to a point where no one could deny his will. But the stories were incompatible, and so he sat, arranging his bones into the world he wanted, until the Second Era.
During the Interregnum, his heart was disturbed, and almost used to subjugate minds of the people of Valenwood. These events on their own aren't massively important here, though it shows what the core of Anumaril's spirit was, and why he would make the Staff of Towers to begin with. The Staff would later come into the possession of the Psijics, to keep its power of domination from being used.
Regardless, Anumaril's will endured in others, inspired by the laws dictated by the Towers. And, like Anumaril, some of them realized that to enforce one's will on another is to deny them their own. That is where Numidium was born.

I am become NM, the Denier of World

The Dwemer, delving deep into Red Mountain, found the spot where Lorkhan's Heart had been sunk at Convention. Sacrilegious as their culture was, they began work on utilizing the Heart of the world as a source of power. Faith in what could be wasn't the style in their deep halls. Reason, separating what was and what wasn't to achieve power, was the consensus domain of the Dwemer scholars. And the Heart was powerful. But the Dwemer, at least on the surface, were not.
The Nords, at this time, had established their First Empire, spanning from High Rock to Morrowind(but not Vvardenfell). Near the end of the First Empire were the days when the Heart project were coming to fruition: the Numidium was created. There are few then who can speak for what things were like for the Dwemer whose words can reach us, though among them is Yagrum Bagarn. Bagarn is a corprus-infected Dwemer who only survived the mysterious fate of his culture through not being present in the Mundus when that fate manifest. He was a master crafter under the architect of the Numidium, High Priest and Magecrafter Kagrenac, and he was involved in the creation of Numidium. On Kagrenac, he has this to say:
I could not match the genius of Lord Kagrenac, but what he could envision, I and my colleagues could build. All of that is gone forever. I still retain my cunning, but my hands and eyes fail me, and my memories have long faded. My only consolation is each day to mock the gods who destroyed my race, and condemned me to this bleak existence.

Kagrenac and his tonal architects, among them Bthuand Mzahnch, believed they could improve the Dwemer race. Others argued that the attempt would be too great a risk. The war with Nerevar and the Dunmer may have led Kagrenac to carry out his experiments prematurely. Although this book argues that nothing disastrous could result, the disappearance of my race argues otherwise.

Kagrenac recorded every step in his manufacture and testing of enchanted items. His journals will record any modifications or enhancements made to his original designs.

Kagrenac carefully planned all his projects in advance. His planbook will have all his original designs. I don't know where the planbook might be.

Lord Kagrenac, the foremost arcane philosopher and magecrafter of my era, devised tools to shape mythopoeic forces, intending to transcend the limits of Dwemer mortality. However, in reviewing his formulae, some logicians argued that side effects were unpredictable, and errors might be catastrophic. I think Kagrenac might have succeeded in granting our race eternal life, with unforeseen consequences -- such as wholesale displacement to an Outer Realm. Or he may have erred, and utterly destroyed our race
This paints an image of a person not unlike that long gone Ayleid king. Someone brilliant enough to replicate the stories that govern the world, down to meticulous detail. Someone who wanted to transcend the limits placed on his people. A thinker few could ever have rivaled in his day, with a will to enact their visions for the world on it. And yet, a failure. Bagarn's hope that he succeeded is betrayed by his grief-filled curses to the gods he and his comrades abandoned.
While it's not too uncommon to hear about Numidium being a Tower, I think it's also important not to neglect its original location. Red Mountain is, itself, another Tower. I doubt this was lost on Kagrenac, and though he didn't have something that could manifest the effects of any Tower at a smaller scale, he did have two proper Towers to himself. One Tower to enforce the story of Resdayn, that the Nords hadn't yet taken from them. And one Tower to deny the Nords, or the Orcs who fought with them, or even the Chimer that helped to defend Resdayn any hold over the fate of the Dwemer. There could be no god to stand in their way, for Kagrenac and the master crafters had made their own god, to deny the power of any and all who could oppose them.
... or at least, that's the common belief. Some might say, perhaps out of spite or maybe out of resistance, that Walk-Brass is not the ultimate denial. Kagrenac's desperate attempt to utilize the Tower to save his people at the eleventh hour, which then seems to have backfired, may not be a direct consequence of the power of Numidium.
I have, in previous discussions, seen people who would like to assume that Numidium does not deny simply because Michael Kirkbride says it does. They say they would like an official source that directly says this is what Numidium does, and when presented with examples that don't directly state this function of the Numidium but do demonstrate it, they deny the source is being interpreted correctly. They are, to put it simply, wrong. There is nothing to help them build their case, and they have nothing but stubborn denial towards some unofficial writings they dislike. So they deny that there could be anything in-line with those writings in canon. I will, however, show that they're wrong.

Kagrenac's Monsters

Back before that Red Day, for centuries, Tamriel had entered an extremely unstable period. Southward, particularly in Cyrodiil, a singularity of thought had gained prominence in the Alessian Empire and was enforced brutally. This singularity of thought was embodied in the beliefs of the monotheist Alessian Order. While many of their individual doctrines are unknown to us, we do know that there was thorough anti-mer sentiment to them. A particularly highly ranked faction within the Order, the Marukhati Selective, became particularly concerned with this. Their Exclusionary Mandates, co-equal principles that governed their order, describe opposition to their ideals as Aldmeri. And to expunge the meri influence from their one god, Akatosh, who revealed himself to Alessia, they broke the bindings on him.
This was the start of the Middle Dawn. The thought of the Selective was that Akatosh had been sullied and corrupted into Auri-el, a blight on the world made manifest in every elf. Their chants make clear their thought on what is to be done about elves.
The Archimonk's Dream
To sleep, to dream, of Tamriel
Unsullied by Anui-El.
Man-ape, tell us.
Maruhk, guide us.
What child of Man could fail to be
In bliss if Nirn were Elven-free?
Man-ape, tell us.
Maruhk, guide us.
We willing march to heed your call,
Devoted, pious, one and all.
Man-ape, tell us.
Maruhk, guide us.
Your mandates we embrace.
And in another, they unify around their sacred hatred.
My very inner organs swell
When I am called upon to tell
Of glory in expunging Taint
In honor of our blessed Saint
Alessia, all praise to her
Who freed Men from the hated Mer.
Thrice-bless'd are those who emulate
Her sanctified, uplifting hate.
This, this, never that.
This, this, never that.
To deny mer the chance to ever, in their minds, taint the world, the Selective began a Dragon Break. An Arch-Prelate of the Selective justifies doing so in his Vindication for the Dragon Break. Using the Staff of Towers, they began a one thousand eight year long Dragon Break, or one whose boundaries are at least that far apart. But why would they use such an object to cause a Dragon Break?
Each Tower corresponds with the story of the area around it, and Direnni the story of the world. With the brass segment, they could push at each story. This, this, never that. Men are freed from the hated mer. Woven into the story of the world, that there would be bliss if men were free. This, this, never that. The Dragon Akatosh, pure and untainted, free to run as he will until all time is expunged of the elves.
The Numidium was activated just before this period. Given the manifold stories about what occurred in that Red Moment, I think it's clear that the Numidium caused another Dragon Break, which may have influenced the one caused by the Selective. The wish of the Dwemer to deny their own mortality and their subsequent disappearance would be a strong validation to the Selective that all mer could be denied a place in the creation of Shezzar. Eventually, the Brass Tower was silent, and its fragment scattered from the complete Staff along with the others. The Order fell, and the Dwemer were gone. Both denied a place in the world they tried to make, and denied the power they sought over it, just as Anumaril had been so long before.

To Put an End to War

The First Era ended, in blood and death. And in blood and death the Second Era was born. The Reman Dynasty, and then the Akaviri Potentate, had both ended and rid Tamriel of the Second Empire. But many, especially those in the West of Tamriel, thought to install a new Empire, and brought the continent to its knees in the conflict. As ever, the people of Tamriel fought one another instead of unifying to oppose the invasion of Molag Bal, who tried to force the Mundus into himself. But these and other trials were eventually ended. A new star was rising.
Regardless of his history and historicity, someone who eventually became Tiber Septim swept through the continent and subdued most of its peoples under him in rapid succession. But eventually, his sights set on Morrowind, which at the time was experiencing some political issues that would be easy for the Emperor to turn in his favor. But instead of doing so, the Tribunal signs the Treaty of the Armistice, admitting Morrowind as a province of the empire with self-governance in exchange for the Numidium.
When talking about Tiber, it can be difficult to figure out what is fact and what is legend. While I have some reservations about The Arcturian Heresy, I think there are some important things it touches on that are worth looking at. From the Heresy:
The Underking continues to press on Tiber Septim the need to conquer Morrowind. The Emperor is not sure that it is a wise idea. ...The Underking wants his vengeance, and reminds Tiber Septim that he is fated to conquer the Elves, even the Tribunal. Arctus advises against the move but Septim covets the Ebony in Morrowind, as he sorely needs a source of capital to rebuild Cyrodiil after 400 years of war. The Underking tells him that, with the Tribunal dead, Septim might steal the Tribunal's power and use it against the High Elves (certainly the oldest enemies of Lorkhan, predating even the Tribunal). Summerset Isle is the farthest thing from Tiber Septim's mind. Even then, he was planning to send Zurin Arctus to the King of Alinor to make peace. The Ebony need wins out in the end. The Empire invades Morrowind, and the Tribunal give up. When certain conditions of the Armistice include not only a policy of noninterference with the Tribunal, but also, in the Underking's eyes, a validation of their religious beliefs, Ysmir is furious.

Pieces of Numidium trickle in, though. Tiber Septim, always fascinated by the Dwarves, has Zurin Arctus research this grand artifact. In doing so, Arctus stumbles upon some of the stories of the war at Red Mountain. He discovers the reason the Numidium was made and some of it's [sic] potential. Most importantly, he learns the Underking's place in the War.

While Zurin Arctus is raving about his discovery, the prophecy finally becomes clear to Tiber Septim. This Numidium is what he needs to conquer the world. It is his destiny to have it. He contacts the Underking and says he was right all along. They should kill the Tribunal, and they need to get together and make a plan.
To summarize, Tiber's interest in the Numidium grows as he discovers more about it, and he supposedly sets it up such that Wulfharth thinks he'll use it as revenge on the Dunmer for Red Mountain. However, I'm not sure that whose soul is used for fueling the Mantella actually matters here, so I won't touch on it.
Zurin Arctus was able to learn about Numidium, and raved about why it exists to Tiber Septim. We don't see anything here about the Staff of Towers, but the brass fragment likely exists for the same mythopoeic reason as the Brass Tower. This is huge for Tiber, as he's in a very similar place to both the Alessian Order and the Dwemer.
First, in the case of the Order, there's a pretty major similarity: Tiber Septim worshiped their god. In The Real Barenziah, we learn that Tiber Septim restored their temple to the One, their version of Akatosh, and was a believer in him. I'm not sure if that necessarily means he bought into all of their perspectives on mer(especially considering his relationship with Barenziah), though the First Edition of the Pocket Guide to the Empire claims that his racism towards Orcs was pretty famous. I doubt that Tiber didn't at least buy into some of their claims, considering he specifically worshiped the One rather than the more cosmopolitan Akatosh who had developed by his time. As for more obvious similarities that are maybe less major, he had a pretty significant, mostly human(at this point) empire. He wanted to expand it, and his hegemony, making the Numidium an appealing prize.
Second, for the Dwemer, Tiber himself as mentioned as having a fascination with them and their craft. Maybe he felt like a kindred spirit? Surrounded by enemies, left only to transcend through his cunning and craft, which even the Greybeards were said to admire, a brilliant strategist... The man might have made a good scholar if he'd been dealt different cards. But he wasn't, and Zurin was the one who got to have fun taking apart and putting back together the big metal man instead. The passion in Zurin's explanation of the purpose and design of the automaton weren't lost on Tiber, even if he didn't have time to enjoy them himself.
So, knowing how the Brass Tower could deny his foes a world in which they would prevail him, and knowing his only foes left were the nearest to the epitome of the people his religious predecessors wanted to see gone from the world, Tiber's goal was clear.

A Weapon in the Arsenal of Righteousness

In Where Were You When the Dragon Broke? , several accounts of the Middle Dawn are provided. However, there's one account mentioning the Dragon Break we'll soon be discussing, as well as one further ahead. This account is given by R'leyt-harhr, a tender of the Mane.
Do you mean, where were the Khajiit when the Dragon Broke? R'leyt tells you where: recording it. 'One thousand eight years,' you've heard it. You think the Cyro-Nordics came up with that all on their own. You humans are better thieves than even Rajhin! While you were fighting wars with phantoms and giving birth to your own fathers, it was the Mane that watched the ja-Kha'jay, because the moons were the only constant, and you didn't have the sugar to see it. We'll give you credit: you broke Alkosh something fierce, and that's not easy. Just don't think you solved what you accomplished by it, or can ever solve it. You did it again with Big Walker, not once, but twice! Once at Rimmen, which we'll never learn to live with. The second time it was in Daggerfall, or was it Sentinel, or was it Wayrest, or was it in all three places at once? Get me, Cyrodiil? When will you wake up and realize what really happened to the Dwarves?
Now, R'leyt-harhr doesn't specifically say that the Numidium was used at Rimmen by Tiber Septim, though there's no other point in what he says where it could be used. Of the three and maybe one more Dragon Breaks we know of, three are mentioned in this passage. So it's pretty clear, at least to me, that when R'leyt-harhr says Rimmen will never learn to live with what happened there involving Numidium, he's referring to what Tiber Septim used it for: the Siege of Alinor. In line with this thriving grief in Elsweyr, the Third Edition of the Pocket Guide to the Empire says this of Summerset:
The conquest and assimilation of Summerset into the Empire is remembered by many a living Altmer with horror only partially diminished by time.
It's unclear exactly what Tiber Septim did with Numidium that would allow him to stage it in Rimmen and attack in Summerset, though conventionally stomping on boats with the big robot is probably out of the question. Numidium is big, but it's not that big. This attack, to me, seems to have been one at a much less physically violent level. Every challenge to the Aldmer was wrapped up in this attack. The Nedic slaves rising, and then trying to unravel the Aldmer from time. The Dwemer throwing off the shackles of the ancestors and trying to steal heaven with a god made in their image. The man who would take the place of misguided Shezzar in the Imperial Pantheon as Champion of Men, and of the Empire he spawned. All aligned with their sights on the Isles.
Certainly, the pride of the people has never recovered.
Proud Altmer, inventors and patrons of the arts, of governance, of architecture, of magic? Or snobs, who look down on everyone else as lesser imitators, who wouldn't know real culture if it bit them on the ass? I think this line from the Pocket Guide, paired with the sentence before it(here also quoted before it) unintentionally touches on what Tiber's attack was and did. Altmeri culture was thoroughly destabilized, almost to the point of nonexistence, by Numidium. But the Altmer hold on for dear life, quietly and proudly refuting the NO that thrums in the Mundus, washing against their shores even into the Third Era. The cling to their achievements, which the Numidium would have ripped away from them completely if they hadn't surrendered to Tiber Septim.
Several cultures in Tamriel have had journaling as an important aspect of daily life. In The Onus of the Oghma, Xarxes as stated as saying:
As ye are true Children of the et'Ada, thou shalt honor us by honoring thy own lives. For in each of you is housed the Divine Spark, and thus the record of thy actions is a sacred duty. Keep, therefore, each and every one of you, an Oghma, an everscriven scroll which shall memorialize thy brief lives. Thus in at least this way shalt thy Spark be Immortal.
The text ends with the rather ominous warning:
So, students, do not groan and complain of the burden, carping and caviling when your parents and teachers ask if you have written today in your journal. Because to do so is a right for which your ancestors paid in blood.
Now, this text is from prior to the Tiber's attack, so the last bit doesn't refer to that directly. But by that point, recording one's life so that it might live on was a common enough thing in Altmer culture that parents and teachers would make sure young people did it. So, when Tiber eventually did attack, the people of the Isles tried to make Tamriel into their Oghma. To make sure everyone would know of their accomplishments, of the fact that they existed and would continue to exist despite the Brass Tower trying to make no place for them, or the gods and principles they believed in, or their (at least, spiritual) resistance to the Empire.
What we see in most of the games from many Altmer then, is a group of people facing a unique challenge in a way that makes them come off as arrogant and snide. Many probably are arrogant and snide. Though the pressures on Altmer that have developed over the course of the Third Era are ones of grave import to their culture: be thoroughly destroyed by imperialism, or be hated even at a cosmic level for your insistence that you are and you have done things. It's the struggles of a people stuck in a Dragon Break, trying to solidify a steady progression of events for themselves while the rest of the world only gets a hint at the horror.

A Tragedy to Never Be Repeated

The rest of the world, however, hadn't ever had to experience Numidium in the same way. Sure, the Khajiit would have to deal with the after effects of it being used there, but even those long lasting effects are nothing compared to what the Altmer probably still have to do to survive. But, as they have before, upstart lords think themselves capable of taming the automaton. And so, the Warp in the West occurs.
Somehow, several kingdoms in the Illiac Bay, Orsinium, and Uriel Septim VII all simultaneously use the Numidium to crush one another, while the Underking takes back the Mantella and Mannimarco uses it to become a god. As has happened before, a Dragon Break occurs. This one is much more localized, and also lasts for much less time. My suspicion is that this is the case because the Numidium probably hasn't been receiving much maintenance since Zurin fixed it up back in the day, and so has deteriorated in a way other Towers don't seem to. As for why or how this occurs, I have no idea, and I don't know that anyone could have an idea right now if we're only allowed to use official sources. Nonetheless, we get to something here that has been fairly elusive up until now: direct confirmation of something being erased as a result of the Numidium breaking the Dragon.
A collection of reports from the Blades called The Warp in the West(hereafter the Reports, so as not to confuse them with the event) describe the clearest scene of the effects of Numidium's usage we've been presented with in the series. 10 Frostfall 3E 417 seems to have been erased in the Illiac Bay. In the style of King Crimson from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Vento Aureo, only the effects of that day remain. The mutually exclusive, yet simultaneous events that would have happened on that day disappeared, leaving only their aftermath. A Blades agent remarks on it.
There had been an attack, but no one had seen it, only the invasion that followed it. The soldiers of Queen Akorithi of Sentinel refused to be interviewed about how they had accomplished this sneak attack, but I came to learn that the whole of northern Hammerfell now belonged to them. Even stranger, I discovered that my walk from sunrise to sundown had not taken me not one day, but two. It was now the 11th day of the month, not the 10th. I had lost a day somewhere, and so apparently had everyone else... except Akorithi's soldiers, who somehow were aware of the correct date.
The beginning of the Reports, which provides some smaller background, also says that mass disappearances were common during the Warp. The Numidium is capable of erasing time and people, and did both during the Warp in the West.
Fortunately, at least it would seem fortunate, the Numidium disappeared after the Warp in the West. For the near future, it would seem that no other fools could use it to take hold of power they would be better off never knowing. Kirkbride's writings are less optimistic, unless Landfall is averted, though of course it's unclear what Bethesda and Zenimax have planned for Numidium(if anything) going forward.

Miracle of Peace, or tl;dr

So, at the end of this series of horrible events, how can we summarize the deal with the Numidium and what Tiber did with it? Well, the Numidium is a Tower whose rule is to deny, as demonstrated most clearly for us in the Warp in the West. It's based on Ayleid and Dwemer architecture and Tower manipulation, and generally tends to be used by people who want to actively deny power to others for their own power. Tiber Septim was one of these, and used it to cause a Dragon Break that almost denied the existence of the Altmer. The effects of his usage of the Numidium remained in only tangentially-effected areas as late as the Third Era, if not later, so it's likely that time still hasn't fully settled back into linear flow in the Summerset Isles(which was directly effected) for at least as long. The Numidium disappeared after the Warp in the West, sparing Tamriel of its horrors. We don't know if it will ever come back in official material.

2020.10.17 03:54 hmansloth Take a random song and parody it to make it into an Owl House parody. What song would you pick and what are the lyrics?

Basically what song would you pick as an Owl House parody?
I would probably go for ‘Ma Baker’ by Boney M. It goes something like this:
Eda: Freeze I’m Edalyn Clawthorne! Put your hands in the air and give me all your snails! Gus: This is the story of Edalyn Clawthorne the meanest witch from Bonesborough! (Instrumental) Gus: She was the meanest witch Luz, Willow, Amity: In old Bonesborough Gus: She was the meanest witch Luz, Willow, Amity: She really mowed them down Gus: She has no care at all Luz, Willow, Amity: No no no care at all Gus: She was the meanest witch Luz, Willow, Amity: For she was really tough Gus: She left her boyfriends flat Luz, Willow, Amity: They weren’t all tough enough Gus: She took her kids along Luz, Willow, Amity: Cause they were mean and strong Gus: E-E-E-E......... Luz, Willow, Amity: Edalyn! She taught her four kids Gus: E-E-E-E Luz, Willow, Amity: Edalyn! To handle their wands Gus: E-E-E-E Luz, Willow, Amity: Edalyn! She never could cry Gus: E-E-E-E Luz, Willow, Amity: Edalyn but she knew how to fly!!!!! (Instrumental) Gus: They left a trail of crime Luz, Willow, Amity: Across the Boiling Isles Gus: And when one kid was caught Luz, Willow, Amity: She really made them pay Gus: She didn’t care at all Luz, Willow, Amity: Just didn’t care at all Gus: E-E-E-E Luz, Willow, Amity: Edalyn! She taught her four kids Gus: E-E-E-E Luz, Willow, Amity: Edalyn! To handle their wands Gus: E-E-E-E Luz, Willow, Amity: Edalyn! She never could cry Gus: E-E-E-E Luz, Willow, Amity: Edalyn but she knew how to fly!!!!! Gus: She met a man he liked Luz, Willow, Amity: She taught she’d date with him Gus: One day he informed on her Luz, Willow, Amity: She did a way with him Gus: She didn’t care at all Luz, Willow, Amity: Just didn’t care at all King: Here is a special bulletin! Edalyn Clawthorne is The Boiling Isles most wanted woman! Her photo is hanging on every wall in town! If you have any information on this woman please contact the Emperor’s Coven immediately! (Instrumental) Eda: Don’t anybody move the hat or your lives! Gus: One they they robbed the palace Luz, Willow, Amity: It was their last foray Gus: The Guards appeared too soon Luz, Willow, Amity: They couldn’t get away Gus: With the Healing Hat they had Luz, Willow, Amity: It made them mighty mad Gus: So then they fought it out Luz, Willow, Amity: Edalyn and her kids Gus: She didn’t want to give Luz, Willow, Amity: They fell with blazing wands Gus: And so the story ends Luz, Willow, Amity: Of one who had no friends Gus: E-E-E-E Luz, Willow, Amity: Edalyn! She taught her four kids Gus: E-E-E-E Luz, Willow, Amity: Edalyn! To handle their wands Gus: E-E-E-E Luz, Willow, Amity: Edalyn!

2020.10.16 19:22 thewolfbouncer 35 [M4F] Anywhere - Trying new avenues, looking for a longterm/serious relationship M4F

Hi Folks,
As the title says I'm trying other options to see how my luck pans out in regards to finding someone for long term or to settle down with even. I've gone through likes of the popular dating apps and a plethora of sites to no success a crap ton of bots and cons, and well a friend suggested here as a few people have had success. Obviously since I'm here I've had no success locally either, so I've no qualms about a long distance relationship with the chance to close gap if all goes well. I'm situated on a smallish rock called the Isle of man which is in the UK (popular for motor bike races).
Now a bit about me. here is a couple of pics so people know who they'll be dealing with https://imgur.com/a/KlfABIS https://imgur.com/a/EYIFI73
I'm 35, going on 36 this month. I used to weigh 152kg (yep I was a big boy) but now after getting my act together and regular gym (weights primarily) I'm now at 108kg and keeping regular to get that lower again I'm still a big lad (broad shouldered) and I'm also 180cm in height as well. Despite my more active lifestyle (I play airsoft regularly as well) I still consider myself geeky/nerdy. I enjoy most things related to pc gaming really but all the typical anime/manga as well. Enjoy my Films/books as well like my scf-fi/fantasy/horrors etc, things involving likes of Lovercraft, Assimov, Steampunk even. Enjoy my strolls and Walks through and around the towns here to relax and have a coffee and people watch or to chat with friends, often find myself tinkering in my shed as well when feeling productive or to clear my head.
Ideally I'd like to connect with someone with a couple of similar tastes at least, to chat and see how things progress. If you are interested by all means send me a pm ideally with a pic so I know who I'm talking to as well.
Cheers

2020.10.16 16:24 Yularen2077 All Soviet/Russian Leaders and Unifiers

In this post I'd like to show off all the leaders of the USSR, and those from outside the USSR that can unify the former lands of the Soviet Union/Russia. You can see portraits, country names, flags, party and leader bios (if applicable), any succession events, and some (imo) noteworthies.
Take a look at it in numbers:
Everything here I either got from in game sources, TV Tropes (a great resource if there ever was one), lurking in the mod's files, or from (now possibly outdated) posts from the subreddit.
Beria
The USSR starts with Lavrentiy Beria, who took over for Kalinin. He dies shortly after game start, and the Politburo becomes the leader.
Red Conclave
In the Red Conclave, as it is called, there are three candidates put up for election. It is very straight forward. Hovering over each of the choices will show you who will increase their support with each option. Whichever candidate has the most support wins.
Konev
With Ivan Konev, think Stalin but more ruthless and a lot more state surveillance. He can have chemical, nuclear, and even biological weapons at his disposal.
Zhukov
Zhukov's Bottom of the Barrel
Georgy Zhukov placates the KNVD by giving them their own little country to rule over: the Soviet Isles, under the leadership of Mikhail Suslov. A tragic twist of fate can befall Zhukov if he is successful in the war against the Germans. While on a tour of the Volkshalle, part of the building, so badly damaged from the war, collapses on him and his entire party. The Politburo once again becomes the leader until a successor is chosen.
There are four choices, aptly named as the 'bottom of the proverbial barrel:' Pyotr Lomako, the 'bureaucratic leech, who will focus on state planning (Gosplan); Alexander Marinesko, the 'alcoholic,' who will focus on (you guessed it) alcohol. So much so that he wants citizens drunk 24/7 so they can not rebel; Pyotr Pokryshev, 'the cripple,' who will focus on health care; and finally Aleksei Antonov, 'the man with a million burdens,' who will focus on the armed forces.
Bulganin
Nikolai Bulganin is the only non-socialist leader (he is a Paternal Autocrat), and upon election changes the USSR into the Second Russian Republic, and gets a flag change as well. As you might suspect, he is a reformer and revisionist, wanting to reform the old system into a Duumvirist Federation. He wants to open up to the TA, supports privatization, and can reunite peacefully with the Russian Republic in the east.
Anti-revisionists may stage a coup in two ways. First, if you do not go down the left side of the tree (lets call it the revisionist tree) and complete the focus 'De-Politicize the Army' within 750 days, Bulganin will be ousted by Admiral Nikolai Kuznetsov and his Hybridists automictically. The Hybridists are a combination of elements of the Red Army and KNVD. Second, if you do go down the tree and complete 'De-Politicize the Army' in time, you will have a choice of letting the coup go through or not.
Kuznetsov
Nikolai Kuznetsov quickly reverses the Bulganin reforms, and the USSR will be re-created once again. His focuses on a GULAG economy, one where the prisoners are put to work in the armed forces, all of it based on penal labor. Only thing is, the uprisings events, etc... that can occur at the end of his GULAG economy tree are currently not implemented yet.
---
The rest of the Soviet leadership info is what was found in the game files or from TV Tropes. I can not vouch that anything will playable in a future version of the mod, but it is still fun to see what paths were planned/worked on. You can only get these leaders through use of the console.
There were two more candidates to succeed Beria: Sergei Kruglov and Vyacheslav Molotov. Aside from Molotov, who actually has a bit of workable tree, and one instance to create a faction, all the other leader's foci trees do nothing, though some loc is there.
Kruglov
The only real thing with Sergei Kruglov is that he is supposed to get very sick at some point and if he recovers will atone for himself by immediately reforming and democratizing the USSR.
If he does not recover he will be ousted by Vasily Zaitsev, the famous OTL sniper, who will implement traditional socialism. It is along the lines of feudalism. He will also pretty much deify Vladimir Lenin, synthesizing Lenin's cult of personality and Russian Orthodoxy. After his death he will be succeeded by Yuri Gagarin, the famous OTL Cosmonaut.
Molotov
He does not know it yet, but Vyacheslav Molotov's tenure will not be a long one, just over a year. He was supposed to be a reformer, but instead slipped back into the ways of Stalin, and re-Stalinizes. Well, the only thing he reformed was the flag! At the end of his short, four foci, Konstantin Rokossovsky takes things into his own hands and 'relives' Molotov of his positions.
Rokossovsky and Successors
Konstantin Rokossovsky is just an interim leader, like the Politburo before. Either he can allow national elections (in the form of Exit Debates), or appoint the new leader himself. Appointing will either see Ernst Jünger (known to the Russians as Fyodor Ivanov), a Zhukovist democrat, whose party description will change to show it; or Frida Vigdorova, who can go on to create her own faction, the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance (COMECON).
Elections could see Ivanov or Vigaoriva, but also Yuri Orlov who would upend the Soviets with reforms. He was a famous Soviet dissident in OTL, and a big human rights advocate. (He just passed away last month believe it or not, at 96).
You may remember Rokossovsky as leader of a Communist Poland under Konev, and JüngeIvanov as a possible leader of the German Peoples Republic. It is the successor to the Soviet Military Administration (occupied Germany) a puppet under a Zhukov USSR; all of which is currently in game.
Molotov Exit Debates
Here are the election events for the three candidates in the Exit Debates. Unlike the Red Conclave, hovering over the choices do not show who's support is gained for each choice. From what I have gathered, choosing the top choice each time will give Ivanov; the middle, Orlov; and the bottom, Vigaoriva.
-
Two other leaders were discussed:
Konev is suppose to be able to be ousted by Vasily Stalin. I don't know anything about that path though.
A while ago it was said that an Abakumov can coup Bulganin too, but I cannot find anything on him. Speculating here but could be Viktor Abakumov, OTL leader of SMERSH, purged by Joseph Stalin.
Lastly, the Soviet state can collapse entirely too, with, in addition to Ivanov and Vlasov, there is also Alexsandr Lokrianov, Andrei Sakharov, and Dmitry Karbyshev as leaders. (Karbyshev nothing like his TNO persona mind you lol, in TWR he is a good guy.) The collapse can happen to Bulganin, Kuznetsov, Abakumov, Zhukov, Konev, Vigdorova, and Zaytsev.
---
Transvolga - Russian Union
I had to add this part in, because it might not have been a path people were able to play/experience, and is supported by Bulganin, so why not. Transvolga is one of the breakaway Soviet states, led by Ivan Bagramyan. The tree is focused around a Kuznetsov coup against Bulganin. Bulganin flees south-west and enlists the help of Bagramyan.
The 'Bulganin's Offer' focus is currently bugged though, as the event on Bulganin's flight is supposed to complete the 'Bulganin's Offer.' Instead it looks for 'Bulgarin's Offer.' So you have to use console commands to get the ball rolling.
A small tree will drum up support for a war against the USSR, and even get defections in the Soviet army. Rushing Perm will practically see the USSR call for peace and Transvolga will annex the USSR. Bagramyan will create a new Russian Union, with a new flag and all (and keeping the Transvolga color). He is scripted to die July 13, 1957 and will be succeeded by Alexander Altunin.
You may remember Altunin as the leader of Russian Military Administration (occupied Germany) under a Bulganin USSR.
Khrushchev
No talk of the Soviets would be complete without Nikita Khrushchev. But in TWR he is not in the USSR, but originates in Novosibirsk, a Central Siberia breakaway state. Coming to power as one of the contenders in a straightforward event after original leader Nikolai Drozdov dies, he will form the Russian Liberation Movement (with Transvolga and Idel-Ural) against the Soviets. Sucess in the wat will see him annex them (if they are in his faction) and proclaim a Russian People's Republic. No flag change though with the new state.
Russian Republic
I was going to focus just on the Soviets, but since I touched upon Transvolga and Novosibirsk, I might as well put a little plug in for the Russian Republic as well. Sergei Wojciechowski is the President of the Russian Republic at game start but dies within a year of the start date. Vice-President Anatoly Rogozhin takes over until a new leader is elected by the Duma.
There are few paths the election of a new leader can take. It is dependent on if Andrey Vlasov gets support or not from the Army in his event, and if Pavel Zhigarev gets support or not from President Rogozhin in his. The outcomes, which will not all be available in the same playthrough (because of support) boil down to: a 50/50 chance the Duma will elect one of the men, the Duma will elect Zhigarev, or if the army will forcibly install Vlasov. Both men can reunite Russia by war or peacefully.
-----
A lot to take in I know, but it just goes to show you how much time and effort was put into the Soviets/Russia lands!
I liked doing a leader post this time, and hope you did too. You might see another one like this again.
That's all for now, Thank You for the read!

2020.10.15 17:58 LordIlthari Scoundrels Chapter 91: Mistress of Mists

I am The Bard. It has been said that man most often meets his destiny on the path he takes to avoid it. But I say to you that there is no destiny, save for the ones you chose for yourself. You are free, so long as you can keep your freedom.
It is only those who seek to know and master their destiny that shall be bound by it. Do not make tomorrow a ruler over you, for she is a despot whom you can never know. Rather do each day’s duty, and manage each according to the divine law.
Keelah turned from where she had found the watch and examined the mountain more closely. The sheer cliff she had apparently washed up by soon gave way to a merely steep slope, and the keen-eyed kobold looked upon it, and saw it became gentler as it went. She therefore resolved to ascend the mountain and see who was throwing pots off of it.
She headed inland, through the rich green grass and strong, tall pines. She kept her footfalls soft and her profile low to the earth. Silver scales are hardly stealthy in a green forest, but amid the mists she was a ghost, unseen by any. Not that there were any to see her. Her keen ears heard nothing save for the sound of birds and the scuttling of small rodents. The isle had no mighty beasts upon it, merely rodents, which are found in all places, and the birds which ate them and the fish.
Nonetheless, Keelah kept low and quiet. While she was not so small that an eagle could carry her off (though a condor certainly could), she was still not a particularly large creature, and devoid of her weapons she was hardly an apex predator. A lynx or bobcat, if it struck her unawares, might be able to kill her, likewise a roaming wolf or bear. But she heard no padding paw, though it did not alleviate her worry.
Kobolds are by no means cowards, but they are also keenly aware of their limitations. They are not the peak of any food chain.
It took her a few hours to come around the side of the volcano and begin ascending up its gentler northern slope. There was no formal path, nothing treaded down by frequent passage, so Keelah had to blaze her own trail, finding the simplest way up the mountain. This task became substantially more difficult as she ascended, for the mists thickened around the cloven peak. After an hour or two of climbing, the sun began to set, and the mists were already extremely thick, reducing Keelah’s visibility to only a few feet in front of her in the visual spectrum.
Infrasight was of no more use either. The cold wet fog colored everything in a temperate permanence. There wasn’t enough sunlight getting through to change the slick film of wetness that covered everything, leaving the whole world an indistinguishable grey mess.
Still, Keelah pressed on. She knew that someone had cast those pots down over the side of the mountain. Pots that were manufactured. A manufactured item meant a sentient creature, in other words, people. Even though she’d yet to encounter any large animals on the island, Keelah still much favored her chances in dealing with people than dealing with the wilds.
She had time to reflect on that as she went. Once, ten years ago it might have been the opposite. She paused, thinking on her days in the scout corps. The Ordanic Army had been good to her, a strong sense of camaraderie, purpose, and the real, genuine respect for her talents she craved. It hadn’t been easy, army life never was, and while the Union hadn’t fought a war in some time, the army was always busy dealing with bandits, roving bands of gnolls, orc raiders, and even the odd giant, though the Paladins usually handled the big lads.
”Of course, you weren’t free though.” She growled, forcing down the positive memories. “So what’s it worth? Doesn’t matter whether you’re a favorite hunting falcon or some gull headed for the sausage factory. A cage is a cage.”
What about the others, the rest of the scoundrels? She shrugged. That was more like it really, freedom. She could have left them any time she wanted to, and wished they were still around. They were fun to mess with, and she’d earned their respect. It reminded her of the guild, in the early days, before the serpents took over. A congregation of the truly free, infamous and powerful. Shame they were most likely all dead. She made a note to go and look for Raymond’s staff later. That might still have all the gold in it.
Not that there was a whole lot to spend all that gold on here. If she did find it, and found people, she’d need to find a way off this rock. Maybe she’d head south to Calisham, maybe even the pirate cities in Chult. She might enjoy being a pirate, if nothing else they had excellent taste in hats.
As she continued up the mountain, she suddenly saw the land below her drop off into a sloping bowl, where the mists were thicker than ever. Amid the wall of white, she saw the faint glow of indigo light. She watched the lights closely, and gathered by their orientation that they were most likely not will-of-the-wisps, but actual lights in some sort of building. The air was warmer here, far more comfortable.
She crept extremely carefully down the slope, before a loose stone gave way and she tumbled head over heels into the mists. She struck not hard ground, but instead water, a bit too hot to be pleasant, especially after the cold, damp outside. The caldera of this ancient volcano had become filled with water, yet still some heat lingered, warming it continually. This water, so much warmer than the outside, began to emit steam, which flowed out of the volcano and covered the whole of the island.
Keelah gathered as much, while also swimming towards where she though the shore was before the heat could cook her. Then she turned, and looked again at the lights. Some of them were actually beneath the water, and others were above. Who would be strange enough to build a tower in the midst of a volcano, especially when half of it was sunken beneath a hot spring?
She pondered this, then began to swim for the edge of the mouth, hoping to escape. But as she used the lights to orient herself, she noticed that she was being pulled by some sort of current. Very strange, the water her shouldn’t have one of those… And then she recognized the sound of the waterfall on the other side of the mountain. She started swimming faster, and harder.
But it seemed her efforts would be in vain. Keelah was not the strongest swimmer at the best of times, and she was exhausted, dehydrated, hungry, and the warm water seemed to sap the strength from her. She wasn’t being pulled in, but she wasn’t making progress either. Sooner or later she would tire, and then be swept over the side to her death. Still, she kept on, fighting for every inch of water.
Then something struck her, and she felt a great chill as her body lifted out from the waters into the cold air. Something from above snatched her out of the water, but she had heard not a wing beat. The creature, whatever it was, deposited her on a smooth surface above the water, then landed almost silently near her. Keelah turned, and peered at the creature. Through the thick fog she couldn’t make it out, but it was clear whatever had seized her was massive, larger even than a warhorse. She could make out something about its feet, mostly because she was right next to them. Paws. Very large paws, like those of a lion.
The being turned, its massive bulk throwing the mists up around it. “Follow me and come in before you catch your death from the gold. It’s going to be a chilly night, for winter is drawing ever closer.”
Hesitantly, Keelah rose, and followed the massive creature along the bridge, towards the great lights. She heard doors swing open, and light and warmth flooded out. She saw the creature’s shadow, framed against the firelight. It was like a lion, but with the wings of an owl upon its back. She knew at once what it was, and responded in her usual manner.
”So, do I need to answer a riddle before I get to come in for dinner?” She joked at the sphinx.
The ancient timekeeper let out a rumbling chuff almost like laughter. “There’s only one gate here, not seven. You are welcome as my guest.”
It was with those words that Keelah relaxed. Hospitality rights were going the way of the dodo in this modern age, but old creatures like this? They remembered when such things were more binding than iron, and still held the old law. They were dangerous, to be certain, but also predictable, particularly when a modern kobold with no time for any such codes was involved.
She entered the building, and came to a large, dodecadonal room. A great hearth filled the center, and around it was a table shaped like a donut. At a word from the sphinx, it became laden with food; flatbreads, olives, hummus, grapes, boiled vegetables, onions, figs, dates, plums, fish in a garlic sauce, and beer. Keelah regarded the conjured food suspiciously.
The Sphinx sensed her confusion and chuffed again in amusement. “I am no fey spirit, and I rarely have visitors.” She spoke reassuringly. “Know I am Saeorai, a friend to the Ordani by way of the late Ferrod and those he cherished, and also for clearing those pirates from Lucre not so long ago.”
Keelah paused. “Ferrod’s been dead for almost five hundred years, and the Lucre campaign was well over a century ago.”
”As I said, not so long.” Saeorai replied. “Your people have accomplished much in a short time.”
”I don’t buy it. You expect me to believe that I just happened to wash up on the island of a friendly sphinx by pure chance?”
”Of course not.” Saeorai said honestly. “But if I sought your harm, I could have simply allowed you to be swept over the waterfall, or let the sea cover you when it overturned your ship.”
Keelah watched the sphinx’s face carefully, and focused her ears to hear the sphinx’s slow, precise heartbeat. She was telling the truth. “So you’re the one who made sure I washed up here, and the rest of them are still alive?”
”It is as you have said. They are on the island at this very moment, and all four of them are safe.” Saeorai replied, and her heartbeat did not change.
”Then why just let us wash up, and only reveal yourself now?” Keelah asked.
”I value my privacy.” Truth. “I had thought that you would find one another, repair your ship, and quickly be gone from my isle” The heartbeat changed ever so slightly, that was a lie. “And as for now, I am loath to allow a life to slip away while it is my power to stop it.” Truth again.
Keelah’s face did not betray her emotions, mostly because it couldn’t become any more suspicious than it already was. The sphinx wasn’t directly malicious, but either she hadn’t expected the scoundrels to find one another, didn’t want them to leave, or both. Keelah thought on the watch in one of her many pockets, five hours out of sync. A twelve sided tower, and if the lights and her guess was right, one with twelve floors.
And a sphinx. It wasn’t hard to gather why she didn’t expect them to leave. “Alright, I’ve got no time for any bullshitting.” Keelah said with a sigh. “I already know you’re not going to kill me, so why exactly don’t you want us to leave your island?”
The sphinx flinched. “That obvious was it?” She asked.
”I’ve got good ears and something between them.” Keelah replied. “So either kill me or have a damn good reason why you plan on keeping me on this rock.”
Saeorai looked at her with surprise, and not a little bit of concern. “What I do I do to prevent more death. Everything you have unleashed thus far is nothing compared to what will happen if you leave this island.”
”Considering we haven’t actually managed to do much aside from get rid of a few politicians, that’s not that much of a surprise.” Keelah replied with her arms crossed. “If you’re talking about Raevirs, try the guilt trap with someone who gives a damn. I didn’t burn the harbor, I killed one old mage, who come to think of it might have been a double. Either way, harbor’s not my fault, and unlike everyone else with their hero complexes, I know I don’t need to save the world or anything so stupid. I did it for the infamy of being the one who stole an entire kingdom’s treasury in one night, and the freedom having that much cash gives you.”
The sphinx stared at the kobold in no small amount of horror. “That’s it then, you’re merely a mercenary? What could have possessed you to continue following the rest of the scoundrels then?”
”Money, respect, infamy, and really the fact that I could leave any time I liked. I got everything I wanted out of those relationships, so I stuck around.” Keelah said with a shrug. “There’s no ideology there, it’s just business and me acting in my own interests. Doing dangerous, stupid things tends to lead to some kind of reward or another, and if nothing else, they’re going to be remembered, and so I’m going to be remembered for being part of that more so than anything else.”
Saeorai shifted from one paw to another uncomfortably. “It would appear I had the wrong measure of you.”
Keelah shrugged. “People aren’t measured. You think you know a person but da-ham you can turn out to be wrong. What’s left of my feet remind me of that every day. Which brings me to my actual point with all of this. You want me to stay on this island. I do not, and you aren’t going to bribe me with food or comfort or gold or anything else. I’ve had enough experience with people who used that to control me. So, you’re either going to have to kill me, or we’re going to make one particular kind of deal. Because you do actually have something I want.”
The sphinx stared at her, and a low, rumbling growl filled the whole chamber, resounding off the walls and rattling the table. “Yes, it’s always that, you foolish mortals crave.”
Keelah shrugged. “Comes with the territory of having something everyone wants. Everyone wants a dragons hoard, every man wants a woman in his bed, unless he’s a triton, every politician wants power.” And she narrowed her eyes. “And yeah, I’d imagine just about everyone wishes they could change their past, and lady, you’ve got the ability to give it out, and not even the gods can offer me that.”
”If you think for an instant I will offer you that kind of power, you are sorely mistaken. You are also sorely mistaken about what kind of power it actually is.”
”I don’t need to be able to time hop at will.” Keelah replied. “Especially since the price I pay is going to be getting stuck on this rock. I just need one trip, one thing I need to change. Give me that, and I’ll stick around. Otherwise, you’re going to deal with me trying to take it until you kill me.”
The sphinx growled again, but Keelah did not flinch. “You will never contain me or control me unless I allow it.” She replied. “Because I will die a thousand times before I ever surrender myself again. You can thank my dear dead husband for that.”
The sphinx glared. “You mean to kill him?”
”Already done. I mean to make sure I never marry the abusive, sadistic, self-righteous, lecherous son of a whore, hopefully by killing him.” She snarled back. “Now you will give me what I want or kill me, but don’t waste my time pretending to be my friend when all you want is to be my jailor, because I’ve had enough people treat me like that already!” She shouted, her voice filled with bitterness, anger, and hurt that had never been properly healed.
The sphinx met her gaze. “So be it.” She said at last. “We have a bargain.”

2020.10.15 10:45 PointMan97 [The Jackal Guards] - Chapter 4 (Beta Reader Test)

Chapter 4: First to Fight

Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo
June 1st, 2025, 03:15 Hours
Belisarius sat inside the cargo bay of the A400M with his fellow robots, about 116 of them including himself. He looked out of the window to see the starry sky and misty cloud outside. The plane was approaching the airport of Brazzaville at low altitude for landing, each of the robots sat on their chairs on each side of the plane as it came in for landing. “Anubis, what’s our plan when we’re on the ground? Beside meeting the Gaulois and German forces that are supporting us.” Belisarius curiously questioned Anubis who sat next to him.
“We’ll be part of their offensive into the Congo to shake things up for Oriental Security. The situation on the ground is chaotic. I’m afraid.” Anubis replied before Belisarius heard a deafening artillery howl and detonation nearby. He cringed at first as the blast of the shell vibrated upwards, affecting the A400Ms that were coming down to Brazzaville’s airport. “I think I get the point, further briefing once we’re on the ground?” Belisarius asked before looking out of the plane’s porthole to the sight of a burning and smoking Brazzaville. “Exactly, once we got the situation under control, you’ll continue your hunt, and I’ll sort out the arrangements.” Anubis sighed as he looked out the porthole at the Chinese shelling of Brazzaville.
“Affirmative, sir, I’ll get it done. Any backups just in case the fight turns grossly against our favors?” Belisarius asked cautiously, to which Anubis looked over to the neighboring city of Brazzaville just on the other side of the Congo River. “We do, the Germans have already placed a brigade of their Panzergrenadiers on the ground with the French Foreign Legion 2nd REP.” The mere mention of the word Legion got Belisarius ears to perk up his eyes and seemed peaked with interests as to what this might mean. “Legion? I never thought the idea of Roman Legion would survive to this day.” Belisarius bluntly remarked.
As the plane landed on the runway, they felt the wheels skidding and slight turbulence vibrating through the fuselage before finally coming to a halt as the first A400M was on the ground before taxiing into the nearby parking lot. Its cargo ramp dropped down, and before the robots disembarked in droves, they already heard the howling howitzers shells and the tremors from the impacts. The robots quickly sprinted out with their equipment in hands, rucksacks, and magnetically attached backpacks shuffled along with their movements. Buildings around them were still standing, somewhere struck by shelling that left a permanent scar. Any structures taller than two-story were almost certain to lose at least half of their form.
They were using HK416A5s assault rifles with HK417A2s battle rifles for the most part. Some of them were carrying HK MG5 to provide suppressive fire on enemy targets behind hardened covers, while others were carrying the M27IAR as the fireteam’s Automatic Rifleman. In addition to those, some of the bots were carrying Carl Gustaf M3 Recoilless Rifles as the anti armor specialists of their respective units.
The robots ran a system diagnostic of their tactical and strategic internet system, at a fireteam level they had the PAN (Personal Area Network) wherein a handful of robots nearby can instantly exchange data at an instant. From a squad to platoon level, they had a specialist carrying a magnetically strapped backpack for modem and LAN equipment.
At the Company to Battalion level and above, the same specialist would carry a similar backpack but with a parabolic antenna link with satellite systems in geosynchronous orbit. Together these formed their ARGOS (Augmented Reality Ground Operations System), the pinnacle of digital military information systems. Most of the robot wolves made their ways to the riverbanks of Brazzaville with their mortars and machine gun teams. There, they set up a base of fires and defilade positions while mortar crews rain precision fire on Chinese defenders by the docks of Kinshasa.
Belisarius double-timed with Anubis towards a jeep and boarded it. Other robots were either busy disembarking from their planes or assisting human evacuations from the city. In the chaos of the moment, the French Foreign Legionnaire who drove the jeep for Anubis and Belisarius kept his eyes on the road. No time for pleasantries, let alone introduction even when he was the chauffeur for a being beyond his wildest imaginations.
"Back in 2023, Europa began their Second Rush to Africa. They aim to overthrow pro-China satellite states in the region and reform the long corrupt regimes of the continent to a more, shall we say, stable and open democracy. Spearheading this is France, one of the most significant colonial owners of the region in the last century." Said Anubis as they passed through the streets of Brazzaville.
Belisarius listened to Anubis while looking around him, seeing the sight of civilians battered by shells, surviving infants and toddlers crying incessantly at their dead parents, half-buried under the rubbles, their cries attracted relief aid workers coming to their rescue. "Our job is to help open the path into Congo, start by taking Kinshasa. That's where you come in." Anubis spoke in a steady tone as they arrived at the Ile M'Bamou, a massive island in the middle of the Congo River where the French Foreign Legion and German Panzergrenadiers were busy with building pontoon bridges to ford across the river to assault Kinshasa's N'djili International Airport.
As they were coming close to the construction site of the pontoon bridge, mortar bombardments began to intensify with the loud bang and booms of mortar shells hitting the dirt, kicking up debris and soil into the air. Occasionally, a human flew into the air with their limbs decapitated. The worst cases were the complete obliteration of their bodies, leaving nothing to identify. One such shell exploded next to the PVP armored car, knocking them over instantly. The shock of the blast left Belisarius dazed along with Anubis. The driver was unconscious, with his arms resting on the wheel and window of the PVP.
Belisarius grunted as his thigh compartment switched open. He reached his hand in and grabbed the hilt of the Gladius saber. Acting quickly and decisively, Belisarius slashed off the seatbelts that were holding him back. He then cut the belts for Anubis and the driver, allowing the Jackal to escape. "Thanks, old friend. I'll take the driver to the treeline, you get to the pontoon bridge and help them." Anubis grabbed the knocked out driver by his wrist and pulled him out of his car seat. The Jackal jumped out of the vehicle, Belisarius followed suit and sprinted towards the pontoon bridge under the unremitting mortar barrage.
Shells howled through the sky, tearing down trees and digging up soils, forcing soldiers and civilians to run for cover, hiding underground, in foxholes, or just under a treeline. As Belisarius came to the Pontoon Bridge construction site, he saw the German Pioneers and French Army Engineers were busy with bridge layer vehicles to set down a proper bridge on the Congo River. The troops there were shelled incessantly by the Chinese on the other side of the rivers.
"Who's in command here?" Belisarius instinctively asked one of the German Panzergrenadiers there. The Efreitor hastily pointed Belisarius to an observation post sitting on an elevated position of the isle. "Es ist Kapitän Kleinenberg! Er ist im Beobachtungsposten versuchen, für Gegenbatterie zu rufen. Wer bist du?" The Efreitor asked confusedly looking, at the seven feet tall Belisarius.
The translation software in Belisarius quickly provided the wolf with a rough translation of the Bundeswehr saying. His voice then received a synthesized version to communicate with the soldier in German, albeit lacking a distinctive dialect or accent. "Your reinforcement." He uttered tersely before sprinting up the hill towards the Observation Post much to the shock of the combined Panzergrenadiers and French Foreign Legionnaires. The robot werewolf opened the door and entered the OP before crouching down to avoid being sniped by a Chinese marksman or trained sniper. "Are you Captain Kleinenberg? I'm told you could use a hand." Said the wolf who caught the captain and his aides off-guard.
"Who the hell are you? And who permitted you to participate in this operation?" Captain Kleinenberg asked confusedly to Belisarius as he cringed under the shock and pressure of sustained mortar bombardment. "Introductions are for later. What do you need help with right now?" Belisarius insisted to the Captain, who then relented as he felt the barrage pressuring on his head. "I need some sharpshooters to take out those fucking mortar crews. They live, the bridge collapses. Get me?" The Captain ordered Belisarius, who nodded in acknowledgment, "I don't care how many, only where." He replied tersely, impressing the Captain with his can-do and no-nonsense attitude. "Alright, our scouts reported the mortars are firing from the marshes next to the airport."
Taking a moment to study the map, Belisarius saw that he could expect tree lines obstructing his views and dispersed mortar positions hiding in the shrubs. Perhaps some snipers to spot targets as well. "I need a weapon," Belisarius stated, prompting a Lieutenant to guide him out to the weapon rack. "Right this way." The Lieutenant gave Belisarius an MSG-90A2 sniper rifle with a bipod. "We're a bit short on ammo here. Radio jamming is making it difficult for us to get resupplied in time. Hopefully, our runner isn't dead before delivering his message." Said the Lieutenant as he handed Belisarius some spare magazines for his MSG-90 rifle. The robot wolf took the magazines and a plate carrier vest to carry the ammo.
"What's your name?" Belisarius asked the Lieutenant before following him out to the battlefield. "Anton, Leutnant Anton Gruber. Whatever you do out there, do it fast. We need the bridge consolidated before the tides pick up." Anton spoke urgently to Belisarius, prompting him to nod before sprinting out and took up a position near a French Foreign Legion's Pioneer foxhole. He laid down on his stomach and scanned the opposite bank with the MSG's scope.
He spotted the first mortar crew wearing camouflage from top to bottom with their weapon lobbing shells over the water. The robot wolf aimed down sight and began to calculate variables such as distance, gravity, rotation of the Earth, and so on. He fired once the calculation concluded, with the bullet landed on the mortar shell's wooden crate. The following detonation killed the entire mortar crew and their weapon.
Belisarius quickly switched on his thermal vision and aimed down the MSG's scope. He scanned the riverbank and opened fire on the enemy mortar crews and snipers. One by one, the Chinese dropped like flies before they began to fall back under a hail of automatic lead from NATO forces. "They are retreating. The bridge is safe now, time to move across and take the airport." The Lieutenant declared eagerly as the French Foreign Legion began to cross the pontoon bridge with German Leopard 2A7+ tanks to support them. Belisarius accompanied the Legionnaire as their shock trooper. He received a FAMAS FELIN rifle with fourteen magazines from one of the Legionnaire.
His curiosity grew as he held the bullpup assault rifle in his hand. The robot wolf managed to identify the cocking handle on the top side of the FAMAS and pulled the bolt down to check his ammo. His HUD ran a scan of the weapon and fed him information on its effective range, rate of fire, ammo capacity, fire modes. Once he had digested the technical performance and instructions, he cocked his head aside and began to head out with the humans. "Sledgehammer here, we have eyes on an enemy short-range SAM system. Engaging now." The Leopard 2A7+ Commander reported on the coms network. The crew loaded the 120mm Rheinmetal's L44 gun with a SABOT round as the main gun aimed at the HQ-12 missile truck.
With a booming thump sound, the gun muzzle breathed out a gust of flame, and the SABOT round flew towards the missile truck, and the vehicle exploded into a flaming wreck. However, the victory was short-lived, for the defending Chinese troops began to retaliate with machine-gun fire at the assaulting troops, and ATGMs flew towards the Leopard tank. "Leopard Zwei under attack! Request immediate assistant, over!" The commander called over the coms as the French Legionnaire took up firing positions and assaulted the ATGM nests.
"Lieutenant Gruber, where is the enemy jammer?" Belisarius asked while propped up against a tree. "About two 500 meters from where we are, the Chinese set up their jammers near the airport to mess with our coms." Hearing this while under a hail of enemy machine gun fires and the constant pressure of their automatic grenade launcher made Belisarius cagey.
The sooner they got rid of that jammer, the sooner they can call in Artillery from German howitzers. "Alright, Lt. Gruber, I'll destroy the jammer, and you call in artillery on the enemy position. Understood?" With only a single nod from Gruber, Belisarius sprinted away towards the edge of the airport. His robot wolf mobility and the digitigrade legs made his rapid advance incredibly fast, passing through the thick foliage and treelines. The Chinese were left bewildered by the lighting movement. He came barreling through the treelines and fell into a Chinese trench with his foot planted into one of their faces. His feet generated crunching sounds as they crushed a Chinese skull. Belisarius swiveled his body over to spray on the Chinese manning the HJ missile system.
As the Chinese defending that particular trench died a brutal and swift death, Belisarius grabbed their ATGM system and rotated around to aim at the Oriental Security operated Type-90 APC. The wolf fired the missile while keeping the weapon sight fixed firmly on the vehicle to guide the ATGM. The result was a violent penetration of the vehicle's hull and concluded with a fiery fireball with the crew screaming inside their steel coffin.
"Did you take out an enemy APC with their ATGM?" Gruber asked excitedly over their coms. However, the message came through garbled by the jammer. "Say again, Gruber. I can't hear you." Belisarius asked as he moved forward ahead of the others. The French Foreign Legionnaire followed up with their VABs and VBLs supporting the assault.
The Leopard 2A7 tank had another HJ-12 missile flown at it. This one came close only to be swatted down by the vehicle's APS system intercepting it. The French Foreign Legionnaire reacted quickly and opened fire furiously at the hiding position of the AT crew. M2 machine guns opened fire furiously to suppress the AT crew while the main gun fired an HE shell that blew away the vegetation of the riverbank.
As Belisarius led the assault further towards the airport, the vegetation gave way to a clear sightline of the airport's runway filled with J-11B jets with PLAAF markings. But what concerned Belisarius the most was the lack of cover from where he was towards the Jammer near the tarmac building.
As the Leopard 2 tank crept up to the edge of the forestry with the French Foreign Legionnaire following to support it, Lt. Gruber came up behind Belisarius, looking exhausted by the constant stress and running from before. "Hey, you have a way with charging ahead, don't you? Anyway, you got eyes on that enemy jammer?" Gruber asked while looking through his binoculars at the Chinese made Electronic Jammer. "I do. Resistance is light so far, but that doesn't seem right." Belisarius remarked as he laid down on his stomach, scanning the runway ahead of him. "Nein, they're moving reinforcements in to knock us back. We must take the tarmac. I can call in artillery support from there."
"Well, consider it done. I'll clear the way for you. Just rain fire at first sight of the enemy." Belisarius replied and stood up. The Legionnaire formed up behind him with additional troops moving in to back them up. These being German Panzergrenadiers with their Puma IFVs. The Chinese defending the airport ran behind their sandbags and barricades to set up firing positions. With machine guns and grenade launchers, they waited patiently for the NATO assault to inevitably come at them. Belisarius came over to the Leopard 2 and climbed aboard it to get the commander's attention. "Don't waste your shot on infantry. Aim for the jammer first. Leave the infantry to me." Belisarius instructed the commander, who acknowledged the coordination and relayed the instruction to his crew.
Sledgehammer's loader put an APFSDS round into the chamber. The gunner trained his sight on the mobile jammer array, and the commander permitted them to fire. The shell flew out of the 120mm main gun and slammed into the PLA's jammer array. The Electronic Jammer violently erupted into flame and burned down. Panicked, the Oriental Security troops were scrambling to douse the fire before it spread to the J-11s.
The defenders on impulse fired desperately at the attackers behind the treelines, cutting down branches, twigs. Some bullets ricochet and hit the French Foreign Legionnaire, either killing or wounding them. Gruber, on instinct, ducked down and held his helmet with both hands, groaning and gritting his teeth under the machine gunfire.
At the very least, communication for NATO troops had become much less arduous. Belisarius quickly called Anubis on their cyber coms to get a situation report. "Sir, we've destroyed the enemy's Jammer. Assault at the airport is on-going. What support do you have for us?" Anubis, on the other end of the line, quickly responded to the report with great urgency in his tone.
"Belisarius! The Chinese are sending reinforcements towards the airport. I'm sending the 108th to assist you now, but they need time to get across the Congo River. ETA: 10 minutes." He knew that it was too easy for their initial assault. Why didn't the Chinese scramble their J-11s jet remained unknown, but he could infer one possible reason being to avoid escalation. Even then, it was a rather flimsy excuse, even on the Chinese part.
Being the ever punctual robot, Belisarius quickly took potshots at the Chinese machine gunners. Before the MG crew could resume fire, he fired some more accurate shots at their heads, knocking them down one by one while the Foreign Legionnaire crept up. They opened fire at the Chinese defenders of the Airport and made flanking maneuvers with support from German Puma IFVs laying down suppressive fire. Belisarius sprinted with one such squad, making a beeline towards the tarmac and gunning down the defenders effortlessly. Lt. Gruber quickly ran up the tarmac with his spotter team before eventually arriving at the top to set up an OP.
"Hammer, this is Muninn. We have eyes on a large concentration of enemy armored forces situated on the clearing to the south of the airport. Request immediate Anti-Armor barrage on my coordinates over." Gruber urgently called on the PzH2000s while peering through his binoculars to the sight of the incoming enemy armor. As they watched Chinese Type-96 tanks rolling towards them with various APCs support, Gruber felt like he was about to be run over by armored treads.
Belisarius, on the ground with other French Foreign Legionnaires, was digging into fighting positions. They parked their tanks and IFVs by the choke points into the airport's runway. "Verstanden Muninn, feuern Sie dichtes Artilleriefeuer auf Ihre Zielkoordinaten ab." Gruber then transmitted the coordinates to the crew using a stylus pen on a command tablet he had with a few taps and swipes.
Once the crew received their target coordinates, they fired off barrages of 155mm guided Anti Armor rounds at the incoming Type-96 tanks. The artillery roared a thunderous bellow, with their shells soaring through the sky, tearing through clouds like Thor's Mjolnir hammer. They soon came down on the Type-96 tanks and knocked out a large portion of the Chinese tank platoon, sending turrets flying into the air like Lego pieces. Vehicle components smashed to smithereens. The following APCs met the same fate, with the Leopard 2s scoring direct hits upon direct hits. Some of the Leopard 2s even scored a double kill with their shells penetrating through multiple APCs that happened to line up.
“Muninn, das ist Hammer. Können wir eine KBE?” The artillery crew asked the now much more invigorated Lt. Gruber as he watched the artillery shells raining death and destruction on the Chinese tank formations. "Hammer, das ist Muninn. Feindliche Panzer nahmen schwere Verluste, mehr Fahrzeuge zerstört." Additional infantry struggled to wade forward, only to curl up in a fetal position under the constant barrage. Others tossed up smoke grenades to cover themselves, then pushed forward under the cover, only for them to be cut down by machine gunfire. The dug in, Panzergrenadiers, and French Foreign Legion had the benefits of thermal optics to pierce through the thick smokescreen and dust clouds kicked up by the artillery shells.
Even Belisarius could do little other than to pick off enemy stragglers as they came close to his position. The French Foreign Legionnaire and German Panzergrenadiers around him kept up their fire. Occasionally, they pass over a spare magazine to keep him in the fight. Constantly pressuring their enemies and breaking their will to fight.
Their method, while seems excessive and brutal, was efficient since the enemies broke and ran for their dear life. For a moment, Gruber felt exhilarating, a thrill, and high of victory rushing over him as he watched the Chinese breaking off and ran as far as possible. But as Gruber and his Forward Observer team celebrated their victory, a mortar shell came crashing down on the tarmac.
Belisarius had a knee jerk reaction as he recoiled under pressure and shock by the barrage. The Chinese mortar barrage came like a downpour of steel and explosives on NATO troops holding the Airport. Many of them have to duck down and wait for the mortar barrage to die down. The howitzers from the German side of the battlefield soon counter-battery the Chinese mortars, silencing them with a steel rain down on the slums south of the Airport.
"Damn it, Gruber? Gruber? Gruber!" Belisarius called out to the Lieutenant as he ran out to search for him under the rubbles. What the robot wolf found after digging through the debris was a gnarly and disfigured remains of the Lieutenant. His right arm and leg were no more, just fleshy remains with a pool of his blood. His head and torso remained intact. But no hope for the man to regain conscient. He had gone to God in Heaven now.
"Requiescat in Pace," Belisarius uttered before closing Gruber's eyes and continued his search around the place for the remains of the Forward Observer Team. Save for the twisted and scattered bits of flesh and blood. Their helmets and body armor saved a good deal of their corpses for identification. As the French Foreign Legionnaire and German Panzergrenadiers pushed up with their reinforcements, they began to clear through the surrounding building blocks in quick and dirty firefights with pockets of Chinese defenders.
The Oriental Security mercenaries, however, were less than thrilled with the idea of facing a trained and well-equipped hostile force. Many of them surrendered without a fight, while some others fired sporadically before falling back. Belisarius participated in the action, chasing the enemies up to the bridge over the river dividing the city's downtown area from its western suburbs and slums.
As the day wore on, Belisarius returned to the airport with the 108th Regiment to rest. The latter was busy with rescuing civilians in Brazzaville and keeping the enemies occupied in the harbor areas of Kinshasa, feigning preparation for an amphibious landing. Belisarius went into a casualties collection tent, counting the dead and wounded they had sustained so far. He estimated their casualties in the area of 20 KIAs and an additional 25 WIAs. While far from unacceptable casualties figures, Belisarius could tell from the looks on the survivor's faces, each loss was a toll on the survivors. On the front and at home.
The 108th Regiment, in the meantime, proceeded to convert the Airport into their base of operation in the Congo. The A400Ms from subsequent flights began to land on the runway with various reinforcements, supplies, vehicles, and infrastructure support. As they worked and toiled around the clock, Anubis came to Belisarius, accompanied by the German General and a French Colonel, alongside them was a robot wolf with a rod of Aescelpius symbol painted on his pauldrons. Belisarius took notice and glanced over, noticing the German officer appeared to be a Brigadier General Hans Holzer. And the French Colonel to be Colonel DuBoise, French Foreign Legion 2e REP. "You must be Belisarius, the one who saved the crew of the Calypso?" Holzer asked as he extended a hand out to Belisarius.
"Yes, that I am. You must be the commanding officer of the expeditionary force." Belisarius inferred, to which Holzer burst into a chuckle at the robot's observation ability. "Ja, I am appointed by Berlin to lead the Bundeswehr contingent. He is Colonel DuBoise, leader of the French Foreign Legion 2nd Parachute Regiment." Holzer introduced DuBoise to Belisarius. The French colonel was wearing his green-covered helmet of the 2nd Foreign Legion Parachute Regiment. His insignia and rank were kept low-key by design to avoid being a sniper bullseye. "Monsieur, Paris is in your debt for your selfless service today." Colonel DuBoise stated to Belisarius as he shook the robot's hand. "It was nothing, just doing my job," Belisarius replied humbly.
"He's quite humble, it seems. Is this normal for the robots you made?" Holzer asked Anubis, to which the Jackal seems to make a rather reserved expression and attitude. "Not really. Some are more boisterous and boastful. Others like Belisarius are soft-spoken gentlemen. Their personalities varied from unit to unit, especially after deployments and accruing personal experiences." Anubis calmly explained to the bewildered NATO officers, who could not believe their ears.
"They develop personalities? Is it possible for A.Is to do so? I thought they were only far-flung future fantasies." Holzer exclaimed, confusedly to Anubis. He saw Anubis nonchalantly nodded to him, "Indeed, they can. How are they supposed to perform half as good as human soldiers if they can't gain experiences and develop personalities?" Anubis asked rhetorically, to which neither Holzer nor DuBoise had an answer.
"But how do you create these A.Is and program them?" Holzer asked curiously, to which Anubis glanced his eye over to the corpses of the dead German Panzergrenadiers and French Foreign Legionnaire. "A human soul's fragments and an A.I symbiosis. A method that no current human-computer algorithm or programming technique can catch up." The jackal deity spoke coldly, his hand reaching out to the body bag of Lt. Gruber and unzipping it to inspect the corpse. "A human soul? Surely, you can't be serious?" Holzer nervously inquired. Anubis didn't seem at all jesting with the NATO officer when he turned to them. His robot jackal face and optics shot them a glare that said it all. "Never was. I can demonstrate if you are willing to see."
To both Holzer and DuBoise, it sounded like a morbid invitation, the childlike curiosity with the desire to learn more of these robots. And yet, in the back of their minds, they could not help but feel something gnawing at them. A feeling that whatever they might learn would not look or sound so well to the public. "How long do you think it will take for this one?" Anubis asked the Physician robot. The white wolf with the blue rod of Aescelpius then bent over to inspect the corpse, putting his palm on Gruber's chest and head. "A day of work, no more, no less. I can salvage his brains and vital organs like the heart, lungs, digestive and reproductive organs." The doctor spoke bluntly. Holzer and DuBoise were shocked to hear of the process's specific details sounding like organ harvesting.
"Is this organ harvesting? Are you going to dissect his remains to take his organs out? How does that have anything to do with your robots?" DuBoise protested, being rather outraged by the grotesque idea Anubis had in mind. The Jackal deity didn't seem to care much for the Frenchman's fuming rage and simply crossed his arms before his chest. "Synthetic organ components. The Nanites I developed will assimilate them into robot components. Get it done." Anubis ordered the physician, who then zipped up the body bag and picked him up, carrying him away to a mobile lab module at the airport's east side. "I do not consent to this. The German public and government do not consent to this. How are you- am I supposed to explain to them?" Holzer furiously asked as he followed Anubis and the physician while Belisarius accompanied them to witness the process.
"Let me handle the public outrage and banana journalists." Anubis sternly remarked before seeing the corpse of Gruber being placed on an operating table by the physician. "You may want to step back." The physician suggested to Belisarius, who sighed out but conceded. They spectated from a shielded section of the lab module.
Inside the operating room, automated medical arms dissect his body, carefully scalped his head, and open his skull to extract his human brains. Each organ was placed inside a canopic jar-like container by the physician. Filled with preservative liquid, he continued his work vigorously as he began to open a large cylinder container, revealing a robot wolf frame on standby. Holzer and DuBoise saw it was a seven feet tall robot body, with chrome grey and silver armor plates top to bottom.
The physician then tapped the buttons on nearby keyboards to open the cylinder, letting cold liquid nitrogen hissing out. They saw the cranial unit open up several flaps. The human brain and organs, in turn, were injected by the physician with a strange liquid metal substance. The grey and silver metal goo once made contact with the preservative liquid, began to fill up the containers, and began the assimilation process.
The brain and organs began to turn synthetic with green circuit boards outlines. The physician then picked up the brains before inserted it into the cranial unit, and the flaps closed in, sealing the morphing brain tightly inside the cranial space. The mechanical arms surgically removed the robot armor plates and cut open the stomach region, allowing the physician to graft the organs into the body, with the Nanites inside moving them into position with the endoskeleton.
With that done, they saw a tendril latched into the back of the robot wolf's head, where his neck and head met. The tendril lodged itself deeply into the neural outlet port. Holzer and DuBoise saw a computer monitor displaying a text reading "Programming process: 0%". "Phase 1 is complete. This unit will be ready by tomorrow for review. Till then, there won't be much to report. I'll let you know what I managed to salvage from Lieutenant Gruber." The physician summarized to Anubis, who nodded to the robot.
"Thank you. Keep me posted." Holzer and DuBoise were less than thrilled. They were both disgusted by the surgery and the idea of robotizing their dead. It was effectively giving Gruber, a dead man, no rest from life. For now, they retired to have a meal until reports of the process stream in.
Horus was in the cafeteria attending lunch with the troops on board the Tartarus. The falcon crown prince sat at a table with Temujin and an odd red robot wolf. The red one looked almost identical to Temujin in build, if it weren’t for the red armor plates with the gold eagle emblem on his pauldron with a pair of crossed swords. His serial number and code appeared to be CLU-00591 GUNTER. They saw a news report from the Congo, showing Anubis and the robot wolves were in combat with the Chinese Oriental Security troops. “Will ya look at that. Anubis is having a field day with the press if he likes to be caught on cam as you.” Gunter stated in a gruff Texan voice and smirked while eating his meal.
“Yeah, only he never does like the attention. Always the dark knight, he is. Get in then get out, leaving no traces behind.” Horus remarked to Gunter as the crown prince ate his bird seeds from a small bowl and some hot meal on the navy tray. “I can’t fault him on that. But I think he could still use some publicities, might help bring in the cold hard cash to spend on the boys.” Said Gunter with a chortle as he ate the meal in his tray. Horus turned over to the red robot wolf and asked him.
“So what are you going to do once we’re on the ground? Ground pounder or Airwolf?” Gunter took notice of Horus’s question and tossed up a coin he had in a leather pouch. The coin spun in the air, flipping between Head and Tail before landing in Earl’s palm and it’s a Head. “Well, ground pounder it is. At least they gave me infantry training. In my lifetime, a pilot got basic firearm training and SERE. But man, when ya a robot with a robot brain, learning is as easy as shoving installing a software.”
Horus nodded to Gunter and patted his back in a friendly manner. “Even then, we still play it safe. You watch my back, I’ll watch yours. Catch you later Earl.” Horus commented before getting up and returned the lunch tray to the cafeteria, before heading back to his cabin on the Tartarus. He was afforded the officer quarters with a fairly spacious room on a ship. The room had an old analog clock hung on the wall, with a board for Horus to pin a world map, and photos of relevant individuals like Kong, Faisal, LeMonde, and the Nordwyrm Virus into place.
Horus pinned Kong's photo on Ethiopia with red strings connecting him to the Nordwyrm Virus, LeMonde, and Faisal. The extra photos were in the HVIs category so he can quickly keep track of them. He sat down and marked the days left before arriving in Somalia when He suddenly received a call from Anubis on their communication nexus and quickly answered.
“Hey bro, what’s up? Looks like you got one helluva press media storm in Kinshasa, huh? Any plans for press coverage and publicity stunts?” Horus asked in a playfully friendly manner, adding in his taste of jests. “Besides the usual phrase of no comments, and some trophy displays, not much. Besides, I got something I need to go over with Belisarius. He did well today, at least."
“Yeah, about that, go easy on him Anubis, if anything it’s my fault that got us all into this. He’s trying to fix the problem before it gets worse. But are you sure that I have to be there? I’ll be out in the open with zero deniability.” Horus inquired with a sigh as he laid down on the bed. “Trust me, you’ll need it. If you want to be a king, learn the concept of consequences first. Otherwise, we’ll have a bastard son on the throne, and I’m sure that neither you nor anyone else sees that as a good sign.” Anubis sternly stated, prompting Horus to make a thick gulp and nodded to Anubis’s harsh words.
“I understand, I won’t let you down Anubis.” Horus, however, heard Anubis made a quick comeback to his promise. “No, Horus, don’t disappoint yourself. May the Hidden One guide your path to the throne.” Anubis replied with Horus nodding to the statement. “You too, Anubis. I love you, take care of yourself and Belisarius as well.” Horus then hung up the call to contemplate the information he had, by now he was roughly two days away from arriving in Somalia.
But before he took a slumber, he pulled out a drawer and grabbed his onyx black tablet computer, and switched on the screen. The screen had a photo of Horus and Anubis standing by their chariot, a prized family possession. The vehicle had an azure blue color with gold ornate Isis figure on the front. The wheels were wooden and reinforced by iron hubcaps, a rarity for what was once a bronze civilization.
Horus stroked at the screen gently, trying his best not to scratch or dent it. He sighed out melancholy, looking at a simpler time when they had time for fun and games. Back then, he would race wildly around the Hippodrome as the champion of Egypt against others like Greeks, Romans, Goths, Gaulois, and Thracian. The Crown Prince then entered the password of his device and went into a file folder to go over intel reports about Somalia.
The first report that came to his attention was timestamped September 5th, 2022, by the Information Warfare Command of the Jackal Guards. This one had an attached photo of a red banner with a yellow hammer and sickle symbol in the middle. The report's headline pronounced, "Somali People's Liberation Front, a Chinese footprint in East Africa, and possible strategic targets." Horus then began to read through the report, going over paragraphs and sections outlying what these factions were.
"Formed by unknown and never before seen leftist provocateur and activist, who goes by the name Mohamed Burhaan. The SPLF champions a cause of Somali unity against perceived 'Imperialist aggressors.' Their method of recruitment lately has been to align elements in the country's society under their Socialist umbrella. Mainly the DAESH linked Al-Shabaab militants, clan militias, and pirates to intimidate the populace from accepting aids from AMISOM III Coalition."
The report read, and Horus grew more and more intrigued by the information it had to offer. He began to go through the various details like the supposed alliance of religiously motivated militants like Al-Shabaab would align with the supposedly Socialist SPLF coalition. One adjective was highlighted in yellow by the IWC Inquisitors for him to notice. "Tenuous." A word that gave insight into the nature of the alliance in question, Horus himself could surmise that one had the gunmen, and the other had the heavy weapons for the prolonged insurgency.
"Al-Shabaab militants have entertained the thought of acquiring up-to-date weaponry, modern flak jackets, equipment as well as an arsenal of heavy weapons and vehicles. The SPLF, through their connections to Oriental Securities in Ethiopia, provides such weapons. Along with technical expertise to train and maintain those weapons as well as the growing crop of Type-59 tanks. While woefully outdated, it would make for terrifying encounters for the AMISOM III troops who did not expect such weapons in Somalia."
Horus grew more and more intrigued by the report as he went through the highlighted words and paragraphs. "A debt-trap diplomacy move. Too bad Al-Shabaab is a useful idiot, so are the SPLF." Anubis commented while reading the report. He stroked his worriedly, however, knowing that Al-Shabaab's fanatical militants would not go down without a fight even if it meant suicide vests against one robot wolf. "Better keep an eye on Temujin and Earl, no telling what those savages would do to them." Horus murmured cautiously before putting the tablet back into the drawer and dozed off.

Chapter 4: First to Fight

Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo
June 1st, 2025, 03:15 Hours
Belisarius sat inside the cargo bay of the A400M with his fellow robots, about 116 of them including himself. He looked out of the window to see the starry sky and misty cloud outside. The plane was approaching the airport of Brazzaville at low altitude for landing, each of the robots sat on their chairs on each side of the plane as it came in for landing. “Anubis, what’s our plan when we’re on the ground? Beside meeting the Gaulois and German forces that are supporting us.” Belisarius curiously questioned Anubis who sat next to him.
“We’ll be part of their offensive into the Congo to shake things up for Oriental Security. The situation on the ground is chaotic. I’m afraid.” Anubis replied before Belisarius heard a deafening artillery howl and detonation nearby. He cringed at first as the blast of the shell vibrated upwards, affecting the A400Ms that were coming down to Brazzaville’s airport. “I think I get the point, further briefing once we’re on the ground?” Belisarius asked before looking out of the plane’s porthole to the sight of a burning and smoking Brazzaville. “Exactly, once we got the situation under control, you’ll continue your hunt, and I’ll sort out the arrangements.” Anubis sighed as he looked out the porthole at the Chinese shelling of Brazzaville.
“Affirmative, sir, I’ll get it done. Any backups just in case the fight turns grossly against our favors?” Belisarius asked cautiously, to which Anubis looked over to the neighboring city of Brazzaville just on the other side of the Congo River. “We do, the Germans have already placed a brigade of their Panzergrenadiers on the ground with the French Foreign Legion 2nd REP.” The mere mention of the word Legion got Belisarius ears to perk up his eyes and seemed peaked with interests as to what this might mean. “Legion? I never thought the idea of Roman Legion would survive to this day.” Belisarius bluntly remarked.
As the plane landed on the runway, they felt the wheels skidding and slight turbulence vibrating through the fuselage before finally coming to a halt as the first A400M was on the ground before taxiing into the nearby parking lot. Its cargo ramp dropped down, and before the robots disembarked in droves, they already heard the howling howitzers shells and the tremors from the impacts. The robots quickly sprinted out with their equipment in hands, rucksacks, and magnetically attached backpacks shuffled along with their movements. Buildings around them were still standing, somewhere struck by shelling that left a permanent scar. Any structures taller than two-story were almost certain to lose at least half of their form.
They were using HK416A5s assault rifles with HK417A2s battle rifles for the most part. Some of them were carrying HK MG5 to provide suppressive fire on enemy targets behind hardened covers, while others were carrying the M27IAR as the fireteam’s Automatic Rifleman. In addition to those, some of the bots were carrying Carl Gustaf M3 Recoilless Rifles as the anti armor specialists of their respective units.
The robots ran a system diagnostic of their tactical and strategic internet system, at a fireteam level they had the PAN (Personal Area Network) wherein a handful of robots nearby can instantly exchange data at an instant. From a squad to platoon level, they had a specialist carrying a magnetically strapped backpack for modem and LAN equipment.
At the Company to Battalion level and above, the same specialist would carry a similar backpack but with a parabolic antenna link with satellite systems in geosynchronous orbit. Together these formed their ARGOS (Augmented Reality Ground Operations System), the pinnacle of digital military information systems. Most of the robot wolves made their ways to the riverbanks of Brazzaville with their mortars and machine gun teams. There, they set up a base of fires and defilade positions while mortar crews rain precision fire on Chinese defenders by the docks of Kinshasa.
Belisarius double-timed with Anubis towards a jeep and boarded it. Other robots were either busy disembarking from their planes or assisting human evacuations from the city. In the chaos of the moment, the French Foreign Legionnaire who drove the jeep for Anubis and Belisarius kept his eyes on the road. No time for pleasantries, let alone introduction even when he was the chauffeur for a being beyond his wildest imaginations.
"Back in 2023, Europa began their Second Rush to Africa. They aim to overthrow pro-China satellite states in the region and reform the long corrupt regimes of the continent to a more, shall we say, stable and open democracy. Spearheading this is France, one of the most significant colonial owners of the region in the last century." Said Anubis as they passed through the streets of Brazzaville.
Belisarius listened to Anubis while looking around him, seeing the sight of civilians battered by shells, surviving infants and toddlers crying incessantly at their dead parents, half-buried under the rubbles, their cries attracted relief aid workers coming to their rescue. "Our job is to help open the path into Congo, start by taking Kinshasa. That's where you come in." Anubis spoke in a steady tone as they arrived at the Ile M'Bamou, a massive island in the middle of the Congo River where the French Foreign Legion and German Panzergrenadiers were busy with building pontoon bridges to ford across the river to assault Kinshasa's N'djili International Airport.
As they were coming close to the construction site of the pontoon bridge, mortar bombardments began to intensify with the loud bang and booms of mortar shells hitting the dirt, kicking up debris and soil into the air. Occasionally, a human flew into the air with their limbs decapitated. The worst cases were the complete obliteration of their bodies, leaving nothing to identify. One such shell exploded next to the PVP armored car, knocking them over instantly. The shock of the blast left Belisarius dazed along with Anubis. The driver was unconscious, with his arms resting on the wheel and window of the PVP.
Belisarius grunted as his thigh compartment switched open. He reached his hand in and grabbed the hilt of the Gladius saber. Acting quickly and decisively, Belisarius slashed off the seatbelts that were holding him back. He then cut the belts for Anubis and the driver, allowing the Jackal to escape. "Thanks, old friend. I'll take the driver to the treeline, you get to the pontoon bridge and help them." Anubis grabbed the knocked out driver by his wrist and pulled him out of his car seat. The Jackal jumped out of the vehicle, Belisarius followed suit and sprinted towards the pontoon bridge under the unremitting mortar barrage.
Shells howled through the sky, tearing down trees and digging up soils, forcing soldiers and civilians to run for cover, hiding underground, in foxholes, or just under a treeline. As Belisarius came to the Pontoon Bridge construction site, he saw the German Pioneers and French Army Engineers were busy with bridge layer vehicles to set down a proper bridge on the Congo River. The troops there were shelled incessantly by the Chinese on the other side of the rivers.
"Who's in command here?" Belisarius instinctively asked one of the German Panzergrenadiers there. The Efreitor hastily pointed Belisarius to an observation post sitting on an elevated position of the isle. "Es ist Kapitän Kleinenberg! Er ist im Beobachtungsposten versuchen, für Gegenbatterie zu rufen. Wer bist du?" The Efreitor asked confusedly looking, at the seven feet tall Belisarius.
The translation software in Belisarius quickly provided the wolf with a rough translation of the Bundeswehr saying. His voice then received a synthesized version to communicate with the soldier in German, albeit lacking a distinctive dialect or accent. "Your reinforcement." He uttered tersely before sprinting up the hill towards the Observation Post much to the shock of the combined Panzergrenadiers and French Foreign Legionnaires. The robot werewolf opened the door and entered the OP before crouching down to avoid being sniped by a Chinese marksman or trained sniper. "Are you Captain Kleinenberg? I'm told you could use a hand." Said the wolf who caught the captain and his aides off-guard.
"Who the hell are you? And who permitted you to participate in this operation?" Captain Kleinenberg asked confusedly to Belisarius as he cringed under the shock and pressure of sustained mortar bombardment. "Introductions are for later. What do you need help with right now?" Belisarius insisted to the Captain, who then relented as he felt the barrage pressuring on his head. "I need some sharpshooters to take out those fucking mortar crews. They live, the bridge collapses. Get me?" The Captain ordered Belisarius, who nodded in acknowledgment, "I don't care how many, only where." He replied tersely, impressing the Captain with his can-do and no-nonsense attitude. "Alright, our scouts reported the mortars are firing from the marshes next to the airport."
Taking a moment to study the map, Belisarius saw that he could expect tree lines obstructing his views and dispersed mortar positions hiding in the shrubs. Perhaps some snipers to spot targets as well. "I need a weapon," Belisarius stated, prompting a Lieutenant to guide him out to the weapon rack. "Right this way." The Lieutenant gave Belisarius an MSG-90A2 sniper rifle with a bipod. "We're a bit short on ammo here. Radio jamming is making it difficult for us to get resupplied in time. Hopefully, our runner isn't dead before delivering his message." Said the Lieutenant as he handed Belisarius some spare magazines for his MSG-90 rifle. The robot wolf took the magazines and a plate carrier vest to carry the ammo.
"What's your name?" Belisarius asked the Lieutenant before following him out to the battlefield. "Anton, Leutnant Anton Gruber. Whatever you do out there, do it fast. We need the bridge consolidated before the tides pick up." Anton spoke urgently to Belisarius, prompting him to nod before sprinting out and took up a position near a French Foreign Legion's Pioneer foxhole. He laid down on his stomach and scanned the opposite bank with the MSG's scope.
He spotted the first mortar crew wearing camouflage from top to bottom with their weapon lobbing shells over the water. The robot wolf aimed down sight and began to calculate variables such as distance, gravity, rotation of the Earth, and so on. He fired once the calculation concluded, with the bullet landed on the mortar shell's wooden crate. The following detonation killed the entire mortar crew and their weapon.
Belisarius quickly switched on his thermal vision and aimed down the MSG's scope. He scanned the riverbank and opened fire on the enemy mortar crews and snipers. One by one, the Chinese dropped like flies before they began to fall back under a hail of automatic lead from NATO forces. "They are retreating. The bridge is safe now, time to move across and take the airport." The Lieutenant declared eagerly as the French Foreign Legion began to cross the pontoon bridge with German Leopard 2A7+ tanks to support them. Belisarius accompanied the Legionnaire as their shock trooper. He received a FAMAS FELIN rifle with fourteen magazines from one of the Legionnaire.
His curiosity grew as he held the bullpup assault rifle in his hand. The robot wolf managed to identify the cocking handle on the top side of the FAMAS and pulled the bolt down to check his ammo. His HUD ran a scan of the weapon and fed him information on its effective range, rate of fire, ammo capacity, fire modes. Once he had digested the technical performance and instructions, he cocked his head aside and began to head out with the humans. "Sledgehammer here, we have eyes on an enemy short-range SAM system. Engaging now." The Leopard 2A7+ Commander reported on the coms network. The crew loaded the 120mm Rheinmetal's L44 gun with a SABOT round as the main gun aimed at the HQ-12 missile truck.
With a booming thump sound, the gun muzzle breathed out a gust of flame, and the SABOT round flew towards the missile truck, and the vehicle exploded into a flaming wreck. However, the victory was short-lived, for the defending Chinese troops began to retaliate with machine-gun fire at the assaulting troops, and ATGMs flew towards the Leopard tank. "Leopard Zwei under attack! Request immediate assistant, over!" The commander called over the coms as the French Legionnaire took up firing positions and assaulted the ATGM nests.
"Lieutenant Gruber, where is the enemy jammer?" Belisarius asked while propped up against a tree. "About two 500 meters from where we are, the Chinese set up their jammers near the airport to mess with our coms." Hearing this while under a hail of enemy machine gun fires and the constant pressure of their automatic grenade launcher made Belisarius cagey.
The sooner they got rid of that jammer, the sooner they can call in Artillery from German howitzers. "Alright, Lt. Gruber, I'll destroy the jammer, and you call in artillery on the enemy position. Understood?" With only a single nod from Gruber, Belisarius sprinted away towards the edge of the airport. His robot wolf mobility and the digitigrade legs made his rapid advance incredibly fast, passing through the thick foliage and treelines. The Chinese were left bewildered by the lighting movement. He came barreling through the treelines and fell into a Chinese trench with his foot planted into one of their faces. His feet generated crunching sounds as they crushed a Chinese skull. Belisarius swiveled his body over to spray on the Chinese manning the HJ missile system.
As the Chinese defending that particular trench died a brutal and swift death, Belisarius grabbed their ATGM system and rotated around to aim at the Oriental Security operated Type-90 APC. The wolf fired the missile while keeping the weapon sight fixed firmly on the vehicle to guide the ATGM. The result was a violent penetration of the vehicle's hull and concluded with a fiery fireball with the crew screaming inside their steel coffin.
"Did you take out an enemy APC with their ATGM?" Gruber asked excitedly over their coms. However, the message came through garbled by the jammer. "Say again, Gruber. I can't hear you." Belisarius asked as he moved forward ahead of the others. The French Foreign Legionnaire followed up with their VABs and VBLs supporting the assault.
The Leopard 2A7 tank had another HJ-12 missile flown at it. This one came close only to be swatted down by the vehicle's APS system intercepting it. The French Foreign Legionnaire reacted quickly and opened fire furiously at the hiding position of the AT crew. M2 machine guns opened fire furiously to suppress the AT crew while the main gun fired an HE shell that blew away the vegetation of the riverbank.
As Belisarius led the assault further towards the airport, the vegetation gave way to a clear sightline of the airport's runway filled with J-11B jets with PLAAF markings. But what concerned Belisarius the most was the lack of cover from where he was towards the Jammer near the tarmac building.
As the Leopard 2 tank crept up to the edge of the forestry with the French Foreign Legionnaire following to support it, Lt. Gruber came up behind Belisarius, looking exhausted by the constant stress and running from before. "Hey, you have a way with charging ahead, don't you? Anyway, you got eyes on that enemy jammer?" Gruber asked while looking through his binoculars at the Chinese made Electronic Jammer. "I do. Resistance is light so far, but that doesn't seem right." Belisarius remarked as he laid down on his stomach, scanning the runway ahead of him. "Nein, they're moving reinforcements in to knock us back. We must take the tarmac. I can call in artillery support from there."
"Well, consider it done. I'll clear the way for you. Just rain fire at first sight of the enemy." Belisarius replied and stood up. The Legionnaire formed up behind him with additional troops moving in to back them up. These being German Panzergrenadiers with their Puma IFVs. The Chinese defending the airport ran behind their sandbags and barricades to set up firing positions. With machine guns and grenade launchers, they waited patiently for the NATO assault to inevitably come at them. Belisarius came over to the Leopard 2 and climbed aboard it to get the commander's attention. "Don't waste your shot on infantry. Aim for the jammer first. Leave the infantry to me." Belisarius instructed the commander, who acknowledged the coordination and relayed the instruction to his crew.
Sledgehammer's loader put an APFSDS round into the chamber. The gunner trained his sight on the mobile jammer array, and the commander permitted them to fire. The shell flew out of the 120mm main gun and slammed into the PLA's jammer array. The Electronic Jammer violently erupted into flame and burned down. Panicked, the Oriental Security troops were scrambling to douse the fire before it spread to the J-11s.
The defenders on impulse fired desperately at the attackers behind the treelines, cutting down branches, twigs. Some bullets ricochet and hit the French Foreign Legionnaire, either killing or wounding them. Gruber, on instinct, ducked down and held his helmet with both hands, groaning and gritting his teeth under the machine gunfire.
At the very least, communication for NATO troops had become much less arduous. Belisarius quickly called Anubis on their cyber coms to get a situation report. "Sir, we've destroyed the enemy's Jammer. Assault at the airport is on-going. What support do you have for us?" Anubis, on the other end of the line, quickly responded to the report with great urgency in his tone.
"Belisarius! The Chinese are sending reinforcements towards the airport. I'm sending the 108th to assist you now, but they need time to get across the Congo River. ETA: 10 minutes." He knew that it was too easy for their initial assault. Why didn't the Chinese scramble their J-11s jet remained unknown, but he could infer one possible reason being to avoid escalation. Even then, it was a rather flimsy excuse, even on the Chinese part.
Being the ever punctual robot, Belisarius quickly took potshots at the Chinese machine gunners. Before the MG crew could resume fire, he fired some more accurate shots at their heads, knocking them down one by one while the Foreign Legionnaire crept up. They opened fire at the Chinese defenders of the Airport and made flanking maneuvers with support from German Puma IFVs laying down suppressive fire. Belisarius sprinted with one such squad, making a beeline towards the tarmac and gunning down the defenders effortlessly. Lt. Gruber quickly ran up the tarmac with his spotter team before eventually arriving at the top to set up an OP.
"Hammer, this is Muninn. We have eyes on a large concentration of enemy armored forces situated on the clearing to the south of the airport. Request immediate Anti-Armor barrage on my coordinates over." Gruber urgently called on the PzH2000s while peering through his binoculars to the sight of the incoming enemy armor. As they watched Chinese Type-96 tanks rolling towards them with various APCs support, Gruber felt like he was about to be run over by armored treads.
Belisarius, on the ground with other French Foreign Legionnaires, was digging into fighting positions. They parked their tanks and IFVs by the choke points into the airport's runway. "Verstanden Muninn, feuern Sie dichtes Artilleriefeuer auf Ihre Zielkoordinaten ab." Gruber then transmitted the coordinates to the crew using a stylus pen on a command tablet he had with a few taps and swipes.
Once the crew received their target coordinates, they fired off barrages of 155mm guided Anti Armor rounds at the incoming Type-96 tanks. The artillery roared a thunderous bellow, with their shells soaring through the sky, tearing through clouds like Thor's Mjolnir hammer. They soon came down on the Type-96 tanks and knocked out a large portion of the Chinese tank platoon, sending turrets flying into the air like Lego pieces. Vehicle components smashed to smithereens. The following APCs met the same fate, with the Leopard 2s scoring direct hits upon direct hits. Some of the Leopard 2s even scored a double kill with their shells penetrating through multiple APCs that happened to line up.
“Muninn, das ist Hammer. Können wir eine KBE?” The artillery crew asked the now much more invigorated Lt. Gruber as he watched the artillery shells raining death and destruction on the Chinese tank formations. "Hammer, das ist Muninn. Feindliche Panzer nahmen schwere Verluste, mehr Fahrzeuge zerstört." Additional infantry struggled to wade forward, only to curl up in a fetal position under the constant barrage. Others tossed up smoke grenades to cover themselves, then pushed forward under the cover, only for them to be cut down by machine gunfire. The dug in, Panzergrenadiers, and French Foreign Legion had the benefits of thermal optics to pierce through the thick smokescreen and dust clouds kicked up by the artillery shells.
Even Belisarius could do little other than to pick off enemy stragglers as they came close to his position. The French Foreign Legionnaire and German Panzergrenadiers around him kept up their fire. Occasionally, they pass over a spare magazine to keep him in the fight. Constantly pressuring their enemies and breaking their will to fight.
Their method, while seems excessive and brutal, was efficient since the enemies broke and ran for their dear life. For a moment, Gruber felt exhilarating, a thrill, and high of victory rushing over him as he watched the Chinese breaking off and ran as far as possible. But as Gruber and his Forward Observer team celebrated their victory, a mortar shell came crashing down on the tarmac.
Belisarius had a knee jerk reaction as he recoiled under pressure and shock by the barrage. The Chinese mortar barrage came like a downpour of steel and explosives on NATO troops holding the Airport. Many of them have to duck down and wait for the mortar barrage to die down. The howitzers from the German side of the battlefield soon counter-battery the Chinese mortars, silencing them with a steel rain down on the slums south of the Airport.
"Damn it, Gruber? Gruber? Gruber!" Belisarius called out to the Lieutenant as he ran out to search for him under the rubbles. What the robot wolf found after digging through the debris was a gnarly and disfigured remains of the Lieutenant. His right arm and leg were no more, just fleshy remains with a pool of his blood. His head and torso remained intact. But no hope for the man to regain conscient. He had gone to God in Heaven now.
"Requiescat in Pace," Belisarius uttered before closing Gruber's eyes and continued his search around the place for the remains of the Forward Observer Team. Save for the twisted and scattered bits of flesh and blood. Their helmets and body armor saved a good deal of their corpses for identification. As the French Foreign Legionnaire and German Panzergrenadiers pushed up with their reinforcements, they began to clear through the surrounding building blocks in quick and dirty firefights with pockets of Chinese defenders.
The Oriental Security mercenaries, however, were less than thrilled with the idea of facing a trained and well-equipped hostile force. Many of them surrendered without a fight, while some others fired sporadically before falling back. Belisarius participated in the action, chasing the enemies up to the bridge over the river dividing the city's downtown area from its western suburbs and slums.
As the day wore on, Belisarius returned to the airport with the 108th Regiment to rest. The latter was busy with rescuing civilians in Brazzaville and keeping the enemies occupied in the harbor areas of Kinshasa, feigning preparation for an amphibious landing. Belisarius went into a casualties collection tent, counting the dead and wounded they had sustained so far. He estimated their casualties in the area of 20 KIAs and an additional 25 WIAs. While far from unacceptable casualties figures, Belisarius could tell from the looks on the survivor's faces, each loss was a toll on the survivors. On the front and at home.
The 108th Regiment, in the meantime, proceeded to convert the Airport into their base of operation in the Congo. The A400Ms from subsequent flights began to land on the runway with various reinforcements, supplies, vehicles, and infrastructure support. As they worked and toiled around the clock, Anubis came to Belisarius, accompanied by the German General and a French Colonel, alongside them was a robot wolf with a rod of Aescelpius symbol painted on his pauldrons. Belisarius took notice and glanced over, noticing the German officer appeared to be a Brigadier General Hans Holzer. And the French Colonel to be Colonel DuBoise, French Foreign Legion 2e REP. "You must be Belisarius, the one who saved the crew of the Calypso?" Holzer asked as he extended a hand out to Belisarius.
"Yes, that I am. You must be the commanding officer of the expeditionary force." Belisarius inferred, to which Holzer burst into a chuckle at the robot's observation ability. "Ja, I am appointed by Berlin to lead the Bundeswehr contingent. He is Colonel DuBoise, leader of the French Foreign Legion 2nd Parachute Regiment." Holzer introduced DuBoise to Belisarius. The French colonel was wearing his green-covered helmet of the 2nd Foreign Legion Parachute Regiment. His insignia and rank were kept low-key by design to avoid being a sniper bullseye. "Monsieur, Paris is in your debt for your selfless service today." Colonel DuBoise stated to Belisarius as he shook the robot's hand. "It was nothing, just doing my job," Belisarius replied humbly.
"He's quite humble, it seems. Is this normal for the robots you made?" Holzer asked Anubis, to which the Jackal seems to make a rather reserved expression and attitude. "Not really. Some are more boisterous and boastful. Others like Belisarius are soft-spoken gentlemen. Their personalities varied from unit to unit, especially after deployments and accruing personal experiences." Anubis calmly explained to the bewildered NATO officers, who could not believe their ears.
"They develop personalities? Is it possible for A.Is to do so? I thought they were only far-flung future fantasies." Holzer exclaimed, confusedly to Anubis. He saw Anubis nonchalantly nodded to him, "Indeed, they can. How are they supposed to perform half as good as human soldiers if they can't gain experiences and develop personalities?" Anubis asked rhetorically, to which neither Holzer nor DuBoise had an answer.
"But how do you create these A.Is and program them?" Holzer asked curiously, to which Anubis glanced his eye over to the corpses of the dead German Panzergrenadiers and French Foreign Legionnaire. "A human soul's fragments and an A.I symbiosis. A method that no current human-computer algorithm or programming technique can catch up." The jackal deity spoke coldly, his hand reaching out to the body bag of Lt. Gruber and unzipping it to inspect the corpse. "A human soul? Surely, you can't be serious?" Holzer nervously inquired. Anubis didn't seem at all jesting with the NATO officer when he turned to them. His robot jackal face and optics shot them a glare that said it all. "Never was. I can demonstrate if you are willing to see."
To both Holzer and DuBoise, it sounded like a morbid invitation, the childlike curiosity with the desire to learn more of these robots. And yet, in the back of their minds, they could not help but feel something gnawing at them. A feeling that whatever they might learn would not look or sound so well to the public. "How long do you think it will take for this one?" Anubis asked the Physician robot. The white wolf with the blue rod of Aescelpius then bent over to inspect the corpse, putting his palm on Gruber's chest and head. "A day of work, no more, no less. I can salvage his brains and vital organs like the heart, lungs, digestive and reproductive organs." The doctor spoke bluntly. Holzer and DuBoise were shocked to hear of the process's specific details sounding like organ harvesting.
"Is this organ harvesting? Are you going to dissect his remains to take his organs out? How does that have anything to do with your robots?" DuBoise protested, being rather outraged by the grotesque idea Anubis had in mind. The Jackal deity didn't seem to care much for the Frenchman's fuming rage and simply crossed his arms before his chest. "Synthetic organ components. The Nanites I developed will assimilate them into robot components. Get it done." Anubis ordered the physician, who then zipped up the body bag and picked him up, carrying him away to a mobile lab module at the airport's east side. "I do not consent to this. The German public and government do not consent to this. How are you- am I supposed to explain to them?" Holzer furiously asked as he followed Anubis and the physician while Belisarius accompanied them to witness the process.
"Let me handle the public outrage and banana journalists." Anubis sternly remarked before seeing the corpse of Gruber being placed on an operating table by the physician. "You may want to step back." The physician suggested to Belisarius, who sighed out but conceded. They spectated from a shielded section of the lab module.
Inside the operating room, automated medical arms dissect his body, carefully scalped his head, and open his skull to extract his human brains. Each organ was placed inside a canopic jar-like container by the physician. Filled with preservative liquid, he continued his work vigorously as he began to open a large cylinder container, revealing a robot wolf frame on standby. Holzer and DuBoise saw it was a seven feet tall robot body, with chrome grey and silver armor plates top to bottom.
The physician then tapped the buttons on nearby keyboards to open the cylinder, letting cold liquid nitrogen hissing out. They saw the cranial unit open up several flaps. The human brain and organs, in turn, were injected by the physician with a strange liquid metal substance. The grey and silver metal goo once made contact with the preservative liquid, began to fill up the containers, and began the assimilation process.
The brain and organs began to turn synthetic with green circuit boards outlines. The physician then picked up the brains before inserted it into the cranial unit, and the flaps closed in, sealing the morphing brain tightly inside the cranial space. The mechanical arms surgically removed the robot armor plates and cut open the stomach region, allowing the physician to graft the organs into the body, with the Nanites inside moving them into position with the endoskeleton.
With that done, they saw a tendril latched into the back of the robot wolf's head, where his neck and head met. The tendril lodged itself deeply into the neural outlet port. Holzer and DuBoise saw a computer monitor displaying a text reading "Programming process: 0%". "Phase 1 is complete. This unit will be ready by tomorrow for review. Till then, there won't be much to report. I'll let you know what I managed to salvage from Lieutenant Gruber." The physician summarized to Anubis, who nodded to the robot.
"Thank you. Keep me posted." Holzer and DuBoise were less than thrilled. They were both disgusted by the surgery and the idea of robotizing their dead. It was effectively giving Gruber, a dead man, no rest from life. For now, they retired to have a meal until reports of the process stream in.
Horus was in the cafeteria attending lunch with the troops on board the Tartarus. The falcon crown prince sat at a table with Temujin and an odd red robot wolf. The red one looked almost identical to Temujin in build, if it weren’t for the red armor plates with the gold eagle emblem on his pauldron with a pair of crossed swords. His serial number and code appeared to be CLU-00591 GUNTER. They saw a news report from the Congo, showing Anubis and the robot wolves were in combat with the Chinese Oriental Security troops. “Will ya look at that. Anubis is having a field day with the press if he likes to be caught on cam as you.” Gunter stated in a gruff Texan voice and smirked while eating his meal.
“Yeah, only he never does like the attention. Always the dark knight, he is. Get in then get out, leaving no traces behind.” Horus remarked to Gunter as the crown prince ate his bird seeds from a small bowl and some hot meal on the navy tray. “I can’t fault him on that. But I think he could still use some publicities, might help bring in the cold hard cash to spend on the boys.” Said Gunter with a chortle as he ate the meal in his tray. Horus turned over to the red robot wolf and asked him.
“So what are you going to do once we’re on the ground? Ground pounder or Airwolf?” Gunter took notice of Horus’s question and tossed up a coin he had in a leather pouch. The coin spun in the air, flipping between Head and Tail before landing in Earl’s palm and it’s a Head. “Well, ground pounder it is. At least they gave me infantry training. In my lifetime, a pilot got basic firearm training and SERE. But man, when ya a robot with a robot brain, learning is as easy as shoving installing a software.”
Horus nodded to Gunter and patted his back in a friendly manner. “Even then, we still play it safe. You watch my back, I’ll watch yours. Catch you later Earl.” Horus commented before getting up and returned the lunch tray to the cafeteria, before heading back to his cabin on the Tartarus. He was afforded the officer quarters with a fairly spacious room on a ship. The room had an old analog clock hung on the wall, with a board for Horus to pin a world map, and photos of relevant individuals like Kong, Faisal, LeMonde, and the Nordwyrm Virus into place.
Horus pinned Kong's photo on Ethiopia with red strings connecting him to the Nordwyrm Virus, LeMonde, and Faisal. The extra photos were in the HVIs category so he can quickly keep track of them. He sat down and marked the days left before arriving in Somalia when He suddenly received a call from Anubis on their communication nexus and quickly answered.
“Hey bro, what’s up? Looks like you got one helluva press media storm in Kinshasa, huh? Any plans for press coverage and publicity stunts?” Horus asked in a playfully friendly manner, adding in his taste of jests. “Besides the usual phrase of no comments, and some trophy displays, not much. Besides, I got something I need to go over with Belisarius. He did well today, at least."
“Yeah, about that, go easy on him Anubis, if anything it’s my fault that got us all into this. He’s trying to fix the problem before it gets worse. But are you sure that I have to be there? I’ll be out in the open with zero deniability.” Horus inquired with a sigh as he laid down on the bed. “Trust me, you’ll need it. If you want to be a king, learn the concept of consequences first. Otherwise, we’ll have a bastard son on the throne, and I’m sure that neither you nor anyone else sees that as a good sign.” Anubis sternly stated, prompting Horus to make a thick gulp and nodded to Anubis’s harsh words.
“I understand, I won’t let you down Anubis.” Horus, however, heard Anubis made a quick comeback to his promise. “No, Horus, don’t disappoint yourself. May the Hidden One guide your path to the throne.” Anubis replied with Horus nodding to the statement. “You too, Anubis. I love you, take care of yourself and Belisarius as well.” Horus then hung up the call to contemplate the information he had, by now he was roughly two days away from arriving in Somalia.
But before he took a slumber, he pulled out a drawer and grabbed his onyx black tablet computer, and switched on the screen. The screen had a photo of Horus and Anubis standing by their chariot, a prized family possession. The vehicle had an azure blue color with gold ornate Isis figure on the front. The wheels were wooden and reinforced by iron hubcaps, a rarity for what was once a bronze civilization.
Horus stroked at the screen gently, trying his best not to scratch or dent it. He sighed out melancholy, looking at a simpler time when they had time for fun and games. Back then, he would race wildly around the Hippodrome as the champion of Egypt against others like Greeks, Romans, Goths, Gaulois, and Thracian. The Crown Prince then entered the password of his device and went into a file folder to go over intel reports about Somalia.
The first report that came to his attention was timestamped September 5th, 2022, by the Information Warfare Command of the Jackal Guards. This one had an attached photo of a red banner with a yellow hammer and sickle symbol in the middle. The report's headline pronounced, "Somali People's Liberation Front, a Chinese footprint in East Africa, and possible strategic targets." Horus then began to read through the report, going over paragraphs and sections outlying what these factions were.
"Formed by unknown and never before seen leftist provocateur and activist, who goes by the name Mohamed Burhaan. The SPLF champions a cause of Somali unity against perceived 'Imperialist aggressors.' Their method of recruitment lately has been to align elements in the country's society under their Socialist umbrella. Mainly the DAESH linked Al-Shabaab militants, clan militias, and pirates to intimidate the populace from accepting aids from AMISOM III Coalition."
The report read, and Horus grew more and more intrigued by the information it had to offer. He began to go through the various details like the supposed alliance of religiously motivated militants like Al-Shabaab would align with the supposedly Socialist SPLF coalition. One adjective was highlighted in yellow by the IWC Inquisitors for him to notice. "Tenuous." A word that gave insight into the nature of the alliance in question, Horus himself could surmise that one had the gunmen, and the other had the heavy weapons for the prolonged insurgency.
"Al-Shabaab militants have entertained the thought of acquiring up-to-date weaponry, modern flak jackets, equipment as well as an arsenal of heavy weapons and vehicles. The SPLF, through their connections to Oriental Securities in Ethiopia, provides such weapons. Along with technical expertise to train and maintain those weapons as well as the growing crop of Type-59 tanks. While woefully outdated, it would make for terrifying encounters for the AMISOM III troops who did not expect such weapons in Somalia."
Horus grew more and more intrigued by the report as he went through the highlighted words and paragraphs. "A debt-trap diplomacy move. Too bad Al-Shabaab is a useful idiot, so are the SPLF." Anubis commented while reading the report. He stroked his worriedly, however, knowing that Al-Shabaab's fanatical militants would not go down without a fight even if it meant suicide vests against one robot wolf. "Better keep an eye on Temujin and Earl, no telling what those savages would do to them." Horus murmured cautiously before putting the tablet back into the drawer and dozed off.

Aboriginal Archives: Gippsland Massacres and the unnamed dead
This is the third in a collection of true crime events, by themselves uniquely brutal and investigations themselves unquestionable, yet quietly set aside by the local public servants - be they police, justice workers, and others.
Note: This story contains the names and descriptions of deceased Aboriginal persons.
This series of crimes is not unique, but I think provides an illustrative example. Additionally, this is relating to a series of historical criminal events. The details are intentionally scarce as the perpetrators were worried about convictions so did not keep many records. The accounts of events from the local population were limited to those of the settlers.

The rolling green hills of Gippsland, Victoria [N1]
The Gunai/Kurnai people
The Gunai/Kurnai, formerly called the Gunai or Kurnai, is an Aboriginal Australian nation of south-east Australia. This post will refer to them as the Gunai Kurnai people. Their territory occupies most of present-day Gippsland and much of the southern slopes of the Victorian Alps. This land runs along the coast of southern Victoria, home to stunning old growth forests in East Gippsland and noted for its modern agriculture. Gippsland was a true Garden of Eden for European settlers. However, the Gunai Kurnai people were well established there. With about 4000 persons before European settlement Gippsland was more densely populated than many other areas.
Context
In the mid-1990s, there was a so-called culture war (the "history wars") within the halls of Australian historic academia [N2]. This was a fierce debate driven by a bone of contention - it was a long-held, deeply believed myth that Australia was a county where explanation into Abogional lands was a largely peaceful one. During that time even calculating the number of Aboriginal dead was seen as a controversial attempt at changing history and assigning blame needlessly. When Australian history began to develop as its own area of interest in the 1950s there was little to no attention paid to Aboriginal Australian history; at best it was a backdrop to the European experience and at worst of a fluke of perpetuation by unusually clever beasts.Now there is a map available showing the locations of the Colonial Frontier Massacres from 1780 to 1930 [N3].
Note that on Tasmania the native Palawa is fully extinct, as is their language and culture: in 1803 there was an estimated 3,000 to 15,000 people but within thirty years there was just 47. The final death keel came where the last 400 persons were incarcerated in camps where most died from a toxic mixture of malnutrition and disease. Some current descendants of Palawa women and European men refer to themselves as Aboriginal Tasmanians.

The Accused

One of six historical bronze figures, McMillan is represented by a coat of arms, Scottish thistle, and two human skulls in a saddlebag. By Annemieke Mien, 1986. [N5]
Angus McMillan, such a famed explorer that his cairn lists the sites he discovered, is also a notable mass murderer. He led many of the Gippsland massacres a ten year period starting in 1940 that killed or displaced the Gunai Kurnai. Born on the Isle of Skye, Scotland McMillan migrated to Australia in 1838; by the time of the Warrigal Creek Massacre he was entrenched in pastoral activities, leading many of the assaults on the Gunai Kurnai. Presently, nineteen monuments honouring McMillian exist in Gippsland, his homestead was preserved then moved to its current location at the open-air museum Old Gippstown. The federal seat was named after him in 1948. The Federal Division of McMillan was renamed Division of Monash in 2018.
Captain William Dana was born in England into a family of notable military experience. He established the Native Police Corps in what would become Victoria. He was also responsible for the Barmah Lake and Snowy River massacres. The Corps is considered reasonable for 125 deaths over two decades. Dana was notable for refusing to arrest Aboriginal people, preferring to have them shot.
The reports on Barmah Lake do not list any official deaths. Instead, an unofficial verbal report made to GA Robinson by a man only referred to as Allen made the following statement:
...a number of men also women were shot by Dana's party at the Murry [sic] and children were knocked on the head with carrabines [sic]. They first sent out a party to look for the natives and then went and planted themselves in a scrub and sent two or three troopers to round or drive them like sheep to be large party carrelled; then they commenced firing and shot some of them in the river. Dana told me he had a brush with the natives. He went to the Murry [sic] by the Campaspe and returned said 20 men, one woman, five children were shot. Kelsh's overseer told me that he, Dana, said he would turn the natives out. (Robinson 5 Jan 1844). [N6]
The Deaths

October–December 1840: Nuntin Station
In October 1840, squatter Angus McMillan brought down cattle from Numblamungie to the stock run at Nuntin in Gippsland. He left his men in charge there and on his return some weeks later they told him that the Kurnai had scattered the stock and attacked them. McMillan gathered his stockmen together, and massacred any Kurnai [possibly Gunnai or Tatungalung or Braiakaulung speakers] at Boney Point on the confluence of the Avon and Perry Rivers. McMillan admitted to this incident in a letter to Lieutenant Governor La Trobe on August 25, 1853. When G.A. Robinson travelled through this area in 1844, he saw many human bones and skulls along the shores of Lake Wellington. Historian P. D. Gardner considers that at least 15-20 Aborigines were killed. Total: 20
22 December 1840: Boney Point

In July 1843, Ronald Macalister, nephew of squatter Lachlan Macalister, was murdered by Brataualang Aborigines, near Port Albert. An avenging party of 20 horsemen, known as 'The Highland Brigade' was organised by Angus McMillan, Lachlan Macalister's former overseer, to look for the killer. The 'brigade' was 'sworn to secrecy'. They went on a five days rampage, killing over 150.

IN-DEPTH:
Box’s Creek Massacre
In 1841 some thirty Kurnai were murdered by European settlers at Box’s Creek (also known as Butcher’s Creek). They were pursued in retaliation for allegedly spearing cattle and trapped on a peninsula of land at Bancroft Bay by an armed party of twelve. On that strip of land, hemmed by endless water, they were slaughtered.
Warrigal Creek Massacre
In July 1843, Ronald Macalister, nephew of squatter Lachlan Macalister, was murdered by Brataualang Aborigines, near Port Albert. According to G.A. Robinson he was murdered after some depraved white men, had, in a fit of drunkenness, 'shot and killed some friendly natives.' An avenging party of 20 horsemen, known as 'The Highland Brigade' was organised by Angus McMillan, Ronald Macalister's former overseer, to look for the killer. The 'brigade' was 'sworn to secrecy' and they appear to have set out on a five day rampage attacking 4 Aboriginal campsites.
After slaughtering about 75 at Warrigal Creek Waterhole and a further 25 at Warrigal Creek mouth, they then shot down another family group of 25 at Freshwater Creek, before moving on to Gammon Creek. In reviewing every known account of the massacre in 2001, Peter Gardiner considers that Gammon Creek was the last in the rampage and that 25 Kurnai were slaughtered and human bones later found. In all 150 Kurnai were killed in the 5-day rampage across 4 sites. The rampage would fit the criteria of 'genocidal massacre'. In reviewing every known account of the rampage in 2001, Peter Gardner considers Warrigal Creek mouth was the second campsite where 25 Aboriginal people were killed.
Afterwards, McMillan kept a hessian bag of human skulls for some time after the event.
Human bones have been found at the site on several occasions. Total: 150
The White Woman of Gippsland
A rumour around the area led to the repeated abuse of Gunai Kurnai by local pastoral settlers. They thought that a white woman had been kidnapped and was being held and raped by locals of Gippsland. Repeated raids were held based on the discovery of woman's undergarments and the assumption that survivors of a shipwreck in 1836 made it to shore. The white men...
"They also carried a number of handkerchiefs, with the following notice printed in English and Gaelic:
"WHITE WOMAN."
There are 14 armed men in search of you. Be cautious and rush to them when you see them near you. Be particularly on the look-out every dawn of morning. For then the party are in hopes of rescuing you. The white settlement is towards the setting sun.
Possibly this is the only instance of Gaelic having been used officially in Victoria, the reason being the supposed loss of a ship in Bass Straits with a number ol' Highland immigrants, many of whom at that period were unacquainted with English.
The expedition succeeded in taking prisoner the woman's supposed captor, Bunjaleena. But, although he was imprisoned and not released until he undertook to deliver her up, that wily individual only appears to have led the police a succession of wild goose chases. One interesting find they made, however, was the figurehead of a small vessel. It was the bust of a woman. The blacks carried it aboutwith them, and appeared to hold it in great reverence, for it was only obtained from them with the greatest difficulty.
The late Mr. Allan McLean always expressed himself as having been very doubtful of a white woman ever having been with the Gippsland blacks, asserting that the figurehead secured by the third expedition was the fonset orgio of the various reports. How he held this view it is hard to conceive, for on October 29, 1847, only four miles away from Tyers' Camp, a native trooper found the dead body ofa white woman and a half-caste child. The following day Angus McMillan held an inquiry, but nothing was found by which the unfortunate's identity could be established." [N8]
It's been suggested that the figurehead is the most likely theory as to the rumours of the White Woman of Gippsland and the repeated raids were driven by hysteria. Total: 50
[N9]
In 1846 Gippsland squatter Henry Meyrick wrote in a letter home to his relatives in England:
The blacks are very quiet here now, poor wretches. No wild beast of the forest was ever hunted down with such unsparing perseverance as they are. Men, women and children are shot whenever they can be met with … I have protested against it at every station I have been in Gippsland, in the strongest language, but these things are kept very secret as the penalty would certainly be hanging … For myself, if I caught a black actually killing my sheep, I would shoot him with as little remorse as I would a wild dog, but no consideration on earth would induce me to ride into a camp and fire on them indiscriminately, as is the custom whenever the smoke is seen. They [the Aborigines] will very shortly be extinct. It is impossible to say how many have been shot, but I am convinced that not less than 500 have been murdered altogether. [N10]

2020.10.13 03:28 NRMacellar The Sphinx of York

(Part 1 of 2)
(Read Part 2 here: https://www.reddit.com/libraryofshadows/comments/jaruxo/the_sphinx_of_york/ )
This story takes place in the year 1947.
Oft has it been told that, at the gates of the grand old city of Thebes, there once lay a beast called a Sphinx, and oft has it been told that any man who dares pass beyond those gates must rightly answer riddles three, lest he be devoured whole by the Sphinx. And oft has it been told that many a witty wight, save clever Oedipus, fell prey to the maw of the beast, for so perplexing were its riddles. Yet should they be answered rightly, the Sphinx would slay itself, never to guard over the gates any longer. Though these things are not as often told as they once were, still they manifest the memory of any poor soul who encounters the Sphinx—for this is truth, and in the presence of the living beast, there can be nothing but truth.
At approximately 6:06 A.M, Thursday, the tenth of April, a train arrived at the York Railway Station. The sight of so many boxcars being opened at the common platform was not a usual one, but neither were the shards of glass which still littered the gravel beneath the tracks nor was the angle of the severed roof-beams, bent buzzard-like over the footbridges. Out of these boxcars bustled men from Kingston, Bridlington, Filey, Knaresborough, and Whitby, carrying all manner of hammers, drills, saws, axes, and spades, maundering dumbstruck over all the ruin. Some four-hundred proud Yorkshirers had boarded that train, having volunteered for the great and noble task of what the newspapers called recovery—many already weary from not having so much as sat down or broken their fasts since Leeds.
Among them was a certain young drunkard named Oliver Atkins, who—courtesy of his advanced dependency—was considerably wearier than the lot of them. Atkins did not have the appearance of one who was so uncouth or flagrant as a drunkard, but upon those who saw him, he impressed a very pitiable state of being nonetheless. He was seldom blamed for his habits, and mostly ignored wherever he went, as his air was never a notably offensive one. There was simply nothing to be done with him.
For he had been one of the unfortunates of the 69th Infantry sent to clear Miteirya Ridge. He had returned to El Alamein—prostrate upon the back of a smoking Valentine—with a New Zealand medic crouched over him and two bullets in his right shoulder, one perilously close to his vitals. The bullets were removed, but still he was counted among the irrevocably incapacitated. His physical recovery was slight, but evident; however, sedatives were regularly required to relieve him, and for this reason, he bided much of his time in unconsciousness. Following the end of the campaign, he was transferred to the sickbay of the Tobruk garrison. There, the medics were singular in their preference of absinthe over morphine, as the latter was reserved to be sent to those freshly-debilitated soldiers in Sicily, and as the former was in rather abundant supply at the Egyptian border. A certain lonely distillery of wormwood lay far out from the city outskirts, standing starkly mysterious beneath the shade of the palm trees.
Though Atkins’ wounds diminished over the quiet months, fever and heatstroke seized him, and he occasionally descended into bouts of catatonia; the medics and local doctors had nothing but the absinthe to prescribe for his bodily ailments, even as it considerably worsened his symptoms of stupor, and bolstered his crippling dependency upon it. Over time, his periods of unconsciousness morphed into waking dreams, during which he stared unblinking at all which lay beyond his hospital cot, mentally elsewhere, wholly removed from reality. When victory was declared at last, and throughout the garrison rang cheers and cries of elation, he did not hear them. For his mind was not in that place, nor was it in that age—he remained on the other side of the border, in Egypt, where he envisioned the eons-old scapes of Giza and the Valley of Kings, having been whisked blissfully high over all the land upon the white wings of the sacred ibis.
This day, however, poor Atkins looked lucidly upon the shape of the First Library of York, which was just down the street from the railway station. He had not yet started drinking that day, which accounted for his weariness and relative sanity. He had, however, not brought a hammer, nor a drill, nor a saw, nor an axe, nor a spade—instead, he had brought a bottle of the green fairy with him, as it was as necessary an accessory to him as the ties and hats of his fellow Yorkshire volunteers. He did not quite remember why he had signed up for this employment, or what precise task was at hand here. He only knew that, in following the detachment of volunteers headed toward the library, and in keeping his bottle relatively hidden from the foreman, he would earn his pay, and afford the next. Here, the vice of his forefathers was both costlier and rarer than it was amid the sands of North Africa, and there were fewer here who recognized the drink as a prescription. Many times, he had—with grave disappointment—noted the lack of potency in the local tinctures, which always paled in comparison to that powerful elixir which had nursed him through the war.
There was already a company Yorkers gathered before the First Library. Atkins and his fellow volunteers mingled with their ranks, as all there stood at the attention of a certain man who identified himself as the foreman. Atkins did not pay much attention to what the foreman said, but he did regard his physical appearance for a moment, memorizing his features and mannerisms only so that he could be more easily avoided over the course of the day. Now, the foreman was a stout, sharp fellow, who had chosen to wear a formal suit in spite of the dust and dilapidation surrounding that place, and was considerably rosy-cheeked for such a position; he seemed as if he was years younger than many of those jaded Yorkshirers whom listened to his instruction—no older than Atkins himself. In order to add years to his authority, however, there stood beside him a curious, hoary old Irishman, who embodied a presence of rugged experience in the work which was to be done.
Soon growing bored of the briefing, Atkins turned his gaze toward the library. The great form of the building was nearly indeterminable to him from the angle at which he viewed it, as the sun was still low upon the horizon, its broad rays cutting through the peaked roofs of neighboring houses and setting ablaze the dense dust clouds which swirled low across the cobbled streets, rendering it all hazy and bright. However, upon its shaded heights, the dust was scarcer, and there could be distinguished all manner of engravings—grotesque, Romanesque, and Patriarchal—beings from history and phantasy alike, all perched astutely upon every corner, pillar, and balcony, peering down from it like watchmen from a castle wall. Yet there was an undeniable sickness in the ethereal silhouette of the library. Perhaps it was the featureless voids that lay behind every window, or perhaps it was the cracks which ran all throughout the brickwork like ivy vines left uncultivated; perhaps it was merely the aura of stillness and quiet which exuded from its walls. Atkins felt a familiar pang of his old African delirium at the mere sight of it, and he knew not whether he wished to be there anymore.
A sudden grumbling arose from the throng of volunteers, denoting the end of the foreman’s speech. Atkins shuffled with them unto some other portion of the library’s exterior, which became raucous with the turbulence of tools as more and more of them arrived and set to work. A great big hole gaped in the side of the library and, setting their hammers and drills against the stone, the volunteers worked to widen it. The air here became even more fraught with dust and din so that not a sight or sound was discernible from even the shortest distances. Of course, Atkins—sorry drunkard that he was—seized the opportunity to slink away into obscurity, accompanied only by his bottle of absinthe.
Stepping with shaky strides through the debris like circus performing executing a high-wire act, he stumbled into a place where the dust was even thicker with the flow of the early winds, but all was silent and devoid of any other soul. He made a cursory examination of the rubble around him, recognizing at once that he stood in the remains of a much more recent wing of the library, where steel beams rose out of the broken shells of marble pillars and the walls were flaked with plaster and paper of no forgotten era. He then took note of a solitary cornerstone amid the debris, which was quite large when measured to the other fragments of debris that surrounded it and offered more an adequate concealment for a runaway drinker such as he. He slumped down behind it and quaffed heavily of the absinthe, suckling at its mouth with a kind of strained desperation.
The flow of the green fairy had, as always, ceased long before Atkins wished for it, and he was left feeling as empty as the bottle that he now idly articulated in his fingers, several times resolving in his mind a myriad of excuses for idling there even longer. Eventually, his curiosity wandered back to the cornerstone which he reclined upon, glancing across the various words and dates engraved upon it with gnawing and unfocused eyes—reading none of them, but catching sight of a peculiar crack in its make.
This was not a crack of decay or dilapidation, but the crack of a lid, ever so slightly raised from its resting place. Drunkenly enamored by this discovery, Atkins forgot at once the other reasons which he had devised for his lingering, and with unsteady hands, twisted himself around, and gripped the lid of the great cornerstone. The air became softly and briefly abuzz with the grinding of the lid as he pushed it from its former place, and a sturdy knock resounded from it when it finally fell aslant.
Atkins peered into the depth of the cornerstone. There within its shadowy, dusty confines lay only one thing—a little sardine tin, no bigger than Atkins’ palm, wonderfully agleam with the morning light. Carefully, and with no untampered anticipation, he reached to take it.
Suddenly, there approached the sound of bootheels against cobblestone, kicking up little bits of debris wherever they landed. Immediately, Atkins shrank back from the cornerstone, instinctively adopting a sort of pathetic, fetal posture, clutching the empty absinthe bottle and the sardine tin to his chest and pursing his lips, presuming himself undetectable. Yet the footsteps came nearer, and nearer, unstopping. Instead, they were then accompanied by a voice, which was distinctly coarse and Irish in accent.
“Terrible pity, sir, a terribler pity than folks deem, what’s got to be done with it. Aye, t’was here I first fancied a reading of Chaucer and lost myself in the verses of Ovid and Spencer both. Naught right in the clearing of places what watered the seeds of many folk since time immemorial; tis’ a grievous wound atop the measureless misery what befell us all.”
Just beyond the cornerstone, the sound of the footsteps stopped, as if lost in consideration. Atkins held his breath and dared not peer over the debris to see who had come; however, this identity became evident when another voice spoke up.
“Indeed, a terrible pity. I myself recall borrowing a collection of Darwin’s works for university, and prior to that, I had visited it on numerous occasions with my mother. Still, I have been assured that a majority of the books have been recovered fully intact. I suspect that they shall be archived in that library in Hull or sold to local sellers. All things considered, York has fared right well in comparison to her sisters, and to that end, we can only be grateful.”
This was the voice of the foreman, who pronounced his words in that way which one only does when biting the end of a pipe—Atkins, it seemed, had not been the only one to come there to reminisce and dally. And it was obvious that the old Irishman had attended the foreman in doing so.
“Nay, sir, ye miss my meaning—now, in my years, I’ve ne’er done other than declare the Crown, and lived a loyal Yorkshirer; aye, you have me Catholic word! But leifer I’d have the Austrian painter over the American businessman, sir, and that is no facetious remark. Mr. Marshall’s intent is not restoration—‘tis replacement, says I. Out with British stone and in with Yankee steel, aye, that’s the truth of it. What’s in the victory, sir? That these sceptered isles should be Britain ne’ermore?”
A particularly stifled puff escaped the foreman’s pipe when he heard this.
“Oh, quit your griping, you old Irish fool! The Jerries are what turned this building into an over-large stage façade, they’ve got no more respect for Anglicized soil. At least the bloody Yanks speak the King’s English, for God’s sake. Ah, come on, now, it’s not all bleak—St. Martin’s and the Bar Convent have been left standing on account of the unthreatening nature of their damages, and there’s even talk of restoration. This library is crumbling; just look at how dangerously the cracked pillars lean over the road, and how the walls are nigh bursting with debris! It’s perfectly perilous for the lot of us to even pass by on our own way to elsewhere. There’s nothing that can be done except to tear it all down.”
The old Irishman sighed and licked his lips quite loudly.
“Perhaps ye’re right, sir, but I stand by me case. T’was a Russian ball what sunk the Crane, blessed boat, and I miss her dear—but I can no longer blame the cannoneer, nor the captain that issued the order. What’s a war but an immense accident, or a fixing for one? Aye, sir, fallings-apart is only as old as the building of things, and what comforts me to think that the old trawler lies at the bottom of the Dogger, unbroken by Man—save for the shot which splintered her—and since then touched only by the fishes and the mermaids, who’ve got no mind toward continuing her destruction. I give you me Catholic word, sir, there’s desecration in these doings, and places as old and grey as this have got souls in them—they ought to be laid to rest proper, says I, just like our sons, and just like our fathers. Ought to leave them be, sir, that’s what’s best—and you have me Catholic word.”
There was a ponderous pause between the old Irishman and the foreman. At last, the foreman—bootheels scraping against the cobblestones—turned away from the cornerstone.
“I’ve no bloody say in it. Men and things can’t always be afforded their due devoirs, and that fact can’t be always dwelt upon. And I suggest you save your Catholic word for the confessional, old chap—I’m no papist.”
The old Irishman swore beneath his breath, and with that, they plodded back into the golden dust-clouds whence they came. Cautiously, Atkins eased himself over the cornerstone, peering this way and that, scanning the periphery of that desolate place as keenly as if he were back in the dugouts of El Alamein. Growing more certain at his renewed solitude with every sweeping glance he made, he dusted himself off and reclined himself upright once again. His interest quickly returned to the flashing sardine tin tightly clutched in his hand.
Something about the exchange which he had been unintentionally audience to made him tentative, now. He eyed the sardine tin with a suspicious, sideways stare, deliberately peeling away at its lid, as if expecting the apparition of a turban-headed djinn to burst forth from it, cursing him with all sorts of unfathomable spells. But the lid simply remained curled back and gleamed no more.
Atkins found himself looking at the library—not as it was currently, bathed in golden sunlight and riddled with holes, but a version that was black, and white, and whole; he removed from the sardine tin a little stack of photographs, which displayed the place in all the glory of the yesteryears. How could this be? Perhaps this wing of the library was even more recent than he had so generously assumed, or perhaps he misremembered the various stages of the invention of the camera. He dared not look again at the cornerstone, afraid to discover some lapse in his memory or judgment upon the sight of the dates engraved upon it, or perhaps worse—that he would encounter an utter impossibility. Instead, he continued to gawk at the photographs, siphoning through them one after the other, wholly awestruck at what used to be. He felt himself strangely empathetic with the sentiments of the old Irishman, whose earlier superstitions seemed now to be nothing short of objective fact as he toured the former library, one picture at a time.
There were photographs of great halls with shelves that spanned the walls, and photographs of domed frescos of cherubs frolicking amidst the clouds of Paradise, and candlelit vistas from Gothic windows out upon smoky cityscapes. Utterly lost in the grandeur of these little pictures, Atkins soaked in one after the other without a single thought of cessation, until he arrived at a particularly odd one.
This one did not display the vast spaces and the intricate craftsmanship of the chivalric centuries, but rather the startlingly modern architecture of what could have only been the recent wing of the library before which Atkins sat. In fact, the scope of this photograph was not pervasive at all, covering only as much as half of one small, nondescript room. Atkins, in spite of his drunken stupor, figured right well that this was no more than some playroom for children to stay as their parents browsed the shelves of the library without inhibition. It appeared empty, save for a chalkboard, and a leather ball left unattended upon the floor. There was something striking about the simplicity of this room, but it did not amaze Atkins—rather, it perturbed him.
There, beyond the void of the open door, something stood in the shadows. Atkins had to rub his eyes to assure himself that they had not deceived him. For it was the shape of a lion, and it had the face of a man—it was none other than a Sphinx.
Atkins knew well that photographic tampering was as old as the camera itself, and with the antiquated quality of the photograph, together with the minute space of film which the Sphinx occupied and the haze that enveloped most of its form, it could well have been just that. If this was the case, however, then this anonymous, age-old editor was no amateur, as that little light which was cast upon the Sphinx was rendered meticulously and without flaw. But who would commit such time and effort to do such a negligible thing? Naturally, Atkins then considered the possibility that it was merely a product of unorthodox taxidermy—that favorite taboo practiced by idle and affluent artists who sowed the pelts of beasts together in the likeness of fantastic and macabre creatures. Yet the head of the Sphinx was indisputably that of a man’s, and there was a living, glowing vigilance in its overcast eyes. The gaze of the beast pierced Atkins, and he felt as if he had been more deeply examined by the photograph than he had examined it.
Atkins let the sardine tin of photographs fall back into the cornerstone, retaining only the photograph of the playroom as he stood up from the debris and looked unto the library. Perhaps some clue to the existence of this striking and peculiarly life-like taxidermy beast could be found within—yes, perhaps it lay mere paces away from him even now, just waiting to be discovered, and the secret of its sentient aspect made clear. Atkins trudged now into the gaping ruin of the library wing, and nigh thoughtlessly so, as he considered this venture to be no more than a momentary glance.
The clarity of brightness was not afforded to him inside the library. Instead, all things there were dully aglow with a yellowish sheen, and where inky shadows did not nest themselves, opaque rays of morning light cut through the cracks in the ceiling, illuminating very little save for the twinkling dust which floated bewitchingly about. Plain, plaster walls were stripped of all decorum, and the floor in every direction was strewn with all manner of wooden things which once were. At some point, Atkins decided that the room he had entered was once a lobby, for he circled a great silvery chandelier lay shattered across a vacant reception desk. Guided only by the scant luminescence which penetrated that place, he turned down a long corridor lit only by a distant window.
He peered through every open door that he passed, regarding the various voids of wan which stretched just beyond them. Gradually, he arrived at the end of the corridor, where, at last, he beheld a room which was brighter and gaudier than the rest, and not wholly unrecognizable to him. For at one end there a great, stained-glass window spanned the wall, and upon the wall opposite to it hung a chalkboard. There was a leather ball left unattended upon the floor, and nothing more.
Though Atkins had found the playroom with relative ease, he instead came to the bitter and embarrassing realization that, if there ever was a Sphinx, it was no longer here—likelier had it been recovered from the corridor adjoining the play-room along with all the books and paintings, or perhaps it had even been moved to elsewhere long before then, as such a monstrous thing had no business being outside the door of a room visited by mothers and their children. Yet, as if untouched for years, there still lay the leather ball upon the floor, wholly unmoved from where it had been in the photograph. Atkins stepped into the playroom and lifted the photograph up to the multicolored vibrance of the stained-glass window only to assure himself that he had remembered incorrectly. But the leather ball was not displaced by even a hair.
A familiarly feverish, African shiver swept over him then, invigorating a once-dormant dread that spread throughout his whole body. How could this be? Atkins’ drunken mind searched desperately for some semblance of reason, as much the presence of the leather ball as in the sudden resurgence of his old sun-stricken maladies. Slowly, he turned from the window and gazed back into the gloomy recesses of the corridor whence he came.
The darkness bristled with a dimly flowing, fiery motion, which could only belong to fur. A great billowing beard of a mane wreathed the furrowed face of a man, whose black eyes shimmered around the edges like little eclipses and burrowed into Atkins’ very being, startling him to utter petrification at the mere sight of them. In strode four great, powerful paws, wholly silent upon the floor, still stalking as if some prey had not already observed their approach. Atkins, in all his delusions, could scarcely register the bizarre beast as it passed into the gaudy light of the window, unabashedly presenting itself in all its ghostly magnificence before him, staring unblinkingly at him with a man-like visage that was perfectly level with his own. It stopped squarely in front of him, and remained there unmoving, waiting with wide and attentive eyes.
As if some undigested absinthe in the pit of his stomach had been upset, there arose a burning, nauseous force within Atkins’ throat that he, by no volition of his own, expelled the quaver-marred question:
What are you?
There settled a curious countenance upon the face of the beast, which occurred so naturally that it seemed as if it was nothing but some change in the tint of the light; Atkins felt his own expression stretched to match it, almost by invisible puppet strings which enchanted his mind to do so. Then, to his great shock and dread, there arose roaring enunciations from behind the bearded mane of the beast; these were none other than words, spoken clearly and true.
By Jove! How strange it is that I am sought
But still I am not known; lo, Sphinx, am I.
By Egyptian reeds first was I begot
Ere came even Joseph, with coat of dye,
And fled Moses, who from Ramses did guide
The Hebrews to the land that was promised.
I throughout many a Pharaoh advised,
Until Alexander, unto whom submiss’d
All Egypt, and under Greece did subsist.
“In Alexandria I did reside
At the library, therein goodly kept.
Here I in philosophers did confide
My lore and sage, and upon tall shelves slept
Until one day, by Ptolemaic precept
I was sent to Thebes, that storied place
Which was the center of all arts yclept.
Thereat I rested upon a bookcase,
Until Hadrian himself me embraced.”
Atkins watched with insurmountable horror as the Sphinx spoke in such a way to him, scarcely capable of believing all that which he was told, already bewildered beyond measure by the fact that he heard these words with his own ears without error, and that they were issued from the mouth of this Sphinx. For the maw of this beast terrified him more than anything else. Beneath human lips, there yawned the fangs of a lion at every syllable pronounced—fangs that, he knew at once, had surely seized the necks of many a young hero who dared enter seven-gated Thebes and devoured them before the city walls. And he knew that the fallacious answers to the riddles of the Sphinx had been their final testaments. Atkins could not bring himself to speak, nor even move.
However, rather unconcerned with the countless fears that now festered within Atkins, the gaze of the Sphinx sank, nearly melancholic, down to the leather ball beside him. Deliberately, it reached out to it with one massive paw and gently gripped it, batting it a short distance to and fro across the carpeted floor. Ever without error or interruption in his words, the Sphinx continued to speak:
“He brought me unto Rome, wherefrom again
I whispered wise words to the ears of kings.
T’was during the years of Severus’ reign
That I to Eboracum he did bring
And here stayed, even after his passing.
Here, also, I beheld the ascension
Of the blessed, cross-kissed Constantine,
Who himself set the stones of foundation
In the lay of this same library-building.
“Herein I passed the days of Arthur King
And Charlemagne, unto whose rule I bowed.
Nay, I fled not from the Spear-Danish Viking,
For this place my loyalty had avowed;
I guarded all who herein helpless cowed.
Neither did I allow for the trespass
Of that plund’rous and foul Norman crowd,
Nor the discord of the ruling class
To these ancient and hallowed halls harass.”
Here, the Sphinx withdrew from the leather ball, and—turning slowly from Atkins—lumberingly retreated over to the playroom door, where it planted itself upright in a kind of patient posture just beside it. It looked unto the stained-glass window, and spoke once more:
“Thereafter occurred a time of respite
In which naught but seekers of old lore
And tales came hither to learn and delight
In all the words of those who came before.
But lo! That tranquil age is no more!
Yet here I must stay, for here lies my creed;
To be faithful to this place I swore.
Prithee, thou man, unto thee I must plead:
Follow me—thou shalt learn, and I shall lead.”
Now, the Sphinx again met Atkins’ gaze. Atkins, at first, could do nothing; his every sinew was stricken with the immobility of shock, and there was a kind of enchantment in the eyes of the Sphinx which forbade him to look away, or even to think of other things. But when the Sphinx, not lingering, turned from him and plodded back out into the corridor, Atkins felt in his being an unyielding pull towards it, as if in this infernal ruin, the terrible beast was his own Virgilius, and his only escape could be found in following it. He forced himself forward and joined the Sphinx outside the playroom.
