In the heavy rains, a wounded VIPER soldier desperately ran through the thick jungle. He checked his helmet's HUD to confirm he's on route to the location as he jumped a low brush, stumbling briefly before taking off. Being given pity by an enemy had been humiliating enough, accepting it worse, but it beat the alternative for his failure that was offered by VIPER. That he can't die here is all that echoed through his mind as he ran, ignoring the throbbing pain of his muscles and the bullet wounds in his abdomen and arms, the hole in his calf being the hardest to endure during this escape. As he stumbled into a clearing, the view of a figure in white armor greeted his empty visor. Not who he was searching for, he confirmed at a glance. He ignored the man and kept running, but as he passed the figure, a cold voice greeted him. "Target secured." As the soldier processed what was meant by that, the back of his neck was struck and he collapsed onto the forest floor, the blood from his wounds staining the leaves below him before washed away by the rains. The figure looked down at the fallen soldier. "We'll find a use for you."
Three years later, a white armored figure strolled down a hallway. A soldier in white armor walked up behind him and bumped him as he walked past. "Pardon, skinny." The soldier laughs as he brushes the man aside. The figure slowly turned its head to glance at the soldier, revealing a featureless green visor as he glances over at the man. As the man noticed the helmet, his face quickly drained of blood. "S..sir, I didn't mean to!" The figure doesn't respond, instead brushing the soldier aside and walking off. One of the other soldiers there walks up to the man as the armored figure left. "Got him in a good mood, you lucky bastard." The second soldier laughed as he patted his comrade on the back. Farther down the hallway, the figure turned and walked into a room. He settled on the couch and kicked his feet up on the table as the well-dressed man behind the large desk in front of him glared briefly before speaking. "Here's what we need you to do, Veroga."
