In the dead of winter, as the fierce war between the factions of Aurelia and the Galactic Imperium continues on without an end in sight, a face reappears after months of hiatus. Sent on a mission to destroy a key G.I target on Iapra, that face shows a new side of himself. His new, enhanced self.

----Begin Field Log:

Entry 1

Subject: SS3-FOX

Location: Iapra

Date: December 23rd, 2096----


I'm just going to come out a say it, because I'm cold, tired, and quite frankly, irritated beyond my tolerance for irritation:


I. Hate. Iapra.


One half of this mudball's blistering hot, and the other half is so cold you'd find warmer temperatures on Pluto. God must've been feeling bipolar when he made this place, if in fact he actually exists. If not, then the universe was feeling bipolar when it made Iapra.

Speaking of bipolar: Hi there. You're probably curious as to who I am. Well... not to be insulting or condescending, but if you had half a brain you would've figured it out from the I.D. number. For those of you poor simpletons (As in most humans, to be quite honest with you) you still have no clue as to who I am, well let me tell you.

I'm Vulpes. Still don't know who I am? Not surprised. People like Jakor and Max Power and General Corvin and General Convo and Sorin Worthington are probably far more iconic then I, so allow me to educate you upon my favorite subject:

Myself.


I was born on Earth, specifically in Iceland. I was raised there by my parents until I was ten years old (By then I had already memorized the various classifications of multiple species. I'm a bit of a biology nut. As well as a history nut. I dabble in writing as well. Mathematics are also quite interesting. As is cooking) where my parents decided it would be a good idea to move to America... Suffice it to say, I found the other children irritating, along with my teachers, who were immensely patronizing.

Well, the years went by, with my intelligence failing to sufficiently grow due to America's poor education standards (As a note, I regret nothing I say during these logs. I am naturally quite cynical and sarcastic, and I've always been this arrogant... claims those who've been in the same school as I... might as well have been going to school with a bunch of prehistoric prokaryotes). There were quite a few heads going into toilets as well, let me admit. I got them back though. Ah, how I will always remember the day I let those lab rats loose all over Johnathan Gregerson's face.

Heh heh... ehrm... moving on.

Eventually I moved onto college, where I achieved a doctor's degree in zoology and anthropology, along with a bachelor's degree in literature. Afterwards I moved to Alaska and lived there until the shift (Some of my notable achievements are the successful disproving of small, goblin-like creatures in the Alaskan Triangle, and several research papers upon the Gray Wolf species, Grizzly bears, and Polar Bears. I specialized in predators, as you can tell) where I and my family moved to Qoter. For several months I researched several System 54 animals (Primarily predators, of course), and had been in the process of setting up an expedition to Flouron to study a very fascinating creature when...


Well... you know what happened. Those Collective savages attacked. My family were in one of the first cities those... things massacred. But they didn't kill them, as I had assumed when I first returned to my ruined, burnt home. What they did was- Oh! Here's the point of my mission here.



Now that I've finished talking about myself, allow me to delve into the far less interesting topic of this mission of mine. As you all should know, the Galactic Imperium has a presence here on Iapra. However, what you don't know about is the short range sensor dish here. 'Why is it so important?' you ask. Allow me to explain to you the situation:

This dish detects everything outside and inside of Iapra's orbit, everything from a Starfighter... to, oh I don't know, an Aurelian battle group. Yes, it's coming together now, isn't it? With this thing destroyed, we will have temporarily disabled the G.I's ability to detect a surprise attack from Aurelia. With Iapra vulnerable, the G.I will be forced to send ships here to reinforce their numbers in orbit as well, particularly if we... ahem... outfox them. Then we can launch an assault on a more high priority target, say Qoter or... Earth.

Regardless, we win, and the G.I loses a key advantage here.


So, let's see what's in my way, shall we? Hm... three guards? Rather... sad really. I suppose the G.I was convinced they had us occupied along the frontlines. Sadly for them, they were incorrect. I silently slid the clean, thin blade of my katana out of its sheath on my back. I bent my elbow and the butt of my laser rifle touched my upper arm. I made sure the heavy, weak shield generator on my back was humming quietly to itself.


I walked calmly out from behind the mound of snow and ice I hid behind. The looks on the faces of those three G.I troopers was brilliant. It was a mixture of shock, surprise, and astonishment, along with fear. I smiled to myself. "Hullo! Nice weather, isn't it?" I called cheerfully.


"It's an Aurelian! Get hi- ACK!" I pulled the trigger of my laser rifle, a pulse of blue laser tearing through the air and into and out of his body.
"How astute." I commented dryly.


He collapsed backwards with a grunt of pain into the snow. The other two soldiers opened fire with their SMG's, the puny metal bullets being easily deflected by the shield generator on my back. I advanced, swinging my katana in slow, lethal, agonizing circles, cutting thin gashes in the snow.


I fired my laser rifle again, killing a second G.I soldier, a woman this time.

She fell silently into the snow. The last soldier was young, with terror written in his wide eyes. His gaping mouth. He tripped over a buried rock and his SMG fell to the ground out of his reach. He crawled backwards until his back touched the thin tower's scaffolding. I stood over him, katana held loosely in one hand, laser rifle in the other. He stuttered as he spoke. "P-please... I-I have a family..."


I took a step back. This was the reason why I wasn't on the frontlines. The TRUE reason. No matter what command said, no matter how much of a big deal they made these little escapades into enemy territory to hit key military targets, THIS was the true reason.

I was a super soldier. I was meant to kill. To destroy. To follow orders blindly. But I don't. I don't kill someone unless they're a threat. I don't destroy unless as many innocent lives are out of the area as possible. And I don't- no, I WON'T follow orders blindly.

I am not a machine. I am a human... a TRUE human... not this... this mockery of the real thing. Jokes about the 9/11 attacks. Jokes about the Holocaust. Jokes about Sierra Leone's civil war. Bullies running rampant. Empathy practically extinct.

And merciless killing on both sides of the war.

I will NOT fall into that PIT like the rest.




I did NOT join Aurelia to be like them. I joined Aurelia to CHANGE THE WORLD, NO THE STAR SYSTEM FOR GOD'S SAKE!

... Why do we do this? Why do we kill each other? Murder each other? Massacre each other? Humiliate each other? What's the damned point of it all? Every day that passes we all preach about a better world... but everyday it just gets worse.




It's because of us. If the universe existed without life things would be better. But it does exist. So things AREN'T better. And they will NEVER BE BETTER. Not as long as we allow places like the Skarr to exist. As long as we allow censorship to exist. As long as we limit the freedoms of other people, this star system will NEVER BE BETTER.


Not unless we change things. MAKE them better.




In the end we all want the same thing. A better world.




But we just can't stand each other.




And one day... we'll all go extinct... and we'll take an entire world... an entire star system... maybe even an entire galaxy with us...




Because we can't suck it up and deal with the fact that we're not all the same.




Pitiful, isn't it?



I destroyed the scanner.



I let the man live.



I was reprimanded in two days time by my commanders.


Sanitation duties for two weeks for letting that man live.


A week later, the G.I had erected a new short range scanner.



Merry f****ing Christmas.

----End Field Log----



----Behind The Scenes----

Here's a view of the set. A bit simple, but I quite like it for some bizarre reason.


The three G.I soldiers equipped with snow suits. Quite happy with these guys.


And finally, the new and improved Vulpes! I'm quite happy with him now ^_^


Fourth wall:
I loved writing this. It might not be the best thing out there... but it felt great making this. I honestly can't quite remember why I gave up writing in the first person perspective. Anyways, this is something of a comeback into The Insurgency for me.

Also, I do hope I haven't accidentally offended anyone, and if I have, I sincerely apologize for doing so.

But anyways...

Hope you guys enjoyed the episode!


For Freedom! For Equality! For Aurelia!

Quoting --R.K. Blast-- Great stuff! I really enjoyed Vulpes' internal monologue! It's good to have you back. I also like the new look of Vulpes! I agree with Iad' that the build itself is a little lacking, but everything was there! 4 points! --Blast--
Thank you! I'm quite happy with it as well, but I might fiddle with it a bit more before I'm entirely happy. Personally, I wish I could've made it a bit larger and made the radar tower a bit more complex and detailed.

Quoting Isaac AD I very much enjoyed that! Well written, compelling action, and while the build wasn't stellar, it certainly captured everything it needed to and did so well. [IAD]
Glad to hear you enjoyed it!
