"Not good news for us. They think there's a rather large force attempting throught here. So I would think that they are misinformed or not informed at all of the situation down here. What's your plan?" he asked as Gray and the soldier followed from behind. Gray dropped the crate of ammo and opened it before taking his assault rifle and opening fire on the hostiles. Meanwhile the soldier assembled a rocket launcher and aimed at one of the tanks, succesfully taking one down with a direct hit. Alex glanced at the soldier with a raised eyebrow before turning back to Faith to introduce himself.
"Alex Rahkola, 5th Volunteer Platoon. Corporal from the 1st Sissi Division" he said and saluted before giving a look at Tirin.
"And where might you be heading off to?" he asked as anothr volunteer squad rushed past them with some heavier weaponry to take out a larger amount of hostiles attempting to drop into the trenchat one point of it. Alex gave way to them as they rushed past before taking cover from a grenade explosion. It was no place to be attempting small talk that's for sure
"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance,
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe,
are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves."
- Carl Sagan
