[Code C] Why would anyone build that?

Post by Tirdelck on Sat Aug 03, 2013 12:57 pm

Tirdelck was starting the feel the first tinges of exhaustion pervading his bones, and his head started to droop in synchronization with the drone of his jetpack that seemed to drone lower and lower, blending into the deep, eerie silence of the night. Shaking himself, awake, Tirdelck surveyed the urban landscape below him, occasionally glancing at the crystal ball in his hand he had gained from a young witch on an adventurous errand not long ago. The temporary relocated administrative capital of Shinrei was nothing compared to the might what Seig City once was- Tirdelck had once been there on a mining mission. The section of buildings he was in was particularly drab in appearance, but there as an aura about it that repelled all cheerful emotions which humankind lived for.

The whole are reeked of death and fear- even from a hundred feet in the air, Tirdelck still felt it from his vantage point. This fabled robotic Medusa, in coordination with the spate of terror attacks or otherwise, had murdered dozens of civilians with a dramatically high-tech method- ultra intense pulses of visible light that fried brain neurons. Something right out of a sci-fi novel, Tirdelck was here to curb these happenings, and for a little more than the normal payout of ryos. He had an interest in protecting the lives of the innocent, however much this new world order infringed upon the dignity of what Earth once was, the same principle stood for how a whole nation is not slaughtered because it government makes mistakes. The feeling of helplessness, of subversion, was a feeling Tirdelck would never allow to exist if it was within his power. He had felt it when his world was invaded and replaced, and he was determined to, along his journey to revenge, enforce justice to his best ability.

With that thought, Tirdelck once again felt alert, the sense of boredom diminishing into a sense of resolute purpose. It was amazing how mental strength can outperform even the densest metal in the periodic table.

As if the robotic monster could detect dramatic changes in human spirit, at that very second Tirdelck detected a vague motion in the corner of his eye. Deciding it was worth the risk, he immediately angled his jetpack forward and reduced the throttle, descending rapidly towards the source of the sound, ever-wary eyes scanning the alleyway. There was a tiny pull of apprehension in the corner of Tirdelck's mind, that tiny bit of paranoid instinct anticipating the camouflaged robot, still invisible to him, to shoot a light pulse at him that would end everything for him.

Strict Shinreian embargoes on all forms of trade besides the recently concluded medical deal with Alteria had resulted in various shortages in countless areas- non of them vital or life-threatening, the government had taken care to ensure food and electric self-sufficiency, healthcare faculties to be in tip-top condition, etc, etc. The odd appliance here and there, though, had become impossibly rare overnight- among them optical protection equipment. That meant no goggles to shield Tirdelck's eyes, no super-sensitive infrared cameras which could act as his eyes. Which meant he was tasked with taking down this electronic monster in full cognizance he had not come with objective preparation, but only his normal complement of survival supplies in his latchpack, and of course, his trusty weapons.

Feeling the weak rush of air particles against his body, sporadic spurts of adrenaline down his spine as Tirdelck sank into what he hoped would be the thick of action, he then realized a singular fact with the potential to end his entire mission. It all came so suddenly his senses and that razor-sharp brain only managed to register the facts after precious split-seconds.

It was a massive hound, around the size of a bear, which surprisingly made no sound- its movements were not obvious, indeed, it seemed as if the bear was taking a considerable effort to remain stealthy. That in itself was a matter of no consequence, it was the second fact that connected the two- a door was surreptitiously shut along the alleyway. Instinct, overwhelming instinct, told Tirdelck somewhere within that door, was a person who had let the hound out- and trained it previously. Which led to a massive arsenal of secondary deductions which Tirdelck had no time to contemplate.

Because at that very moment, a blood-curdling scream of feminine tone made Tirdelck's blood run cold.

Biting his lip, gritting his teeth, Tirdelck reacted abruptly, relegating the priority of all thought sequences below that of actually getting to the source of the scream. his body shook from the bone-stuttering vibration of his jetpack as he maximized the vectored throttle in a 180-degree upwards twist. He calculated the scream to be some three alleyways north of his position, bypassing the main road of the sector he was currently in, anyhow.

In that few seconds of flight, Tirdelck's mind processed everything he had seen in the last tenth of a minute into conclusions- the movement instigated by the hound was a deception, the mastermind behind the entire plan, whatever it was, was actually in the city, but Tirdelck had no means of getting to him- the robotic Medusa had been evidently unleashed, seeing the odds of the scream being a coincidence were near impossible. In Tirdelck's calculations of cold fact and deduction, these odds were absolutely zero.

That meant the mastermind knew his only course of action was to deal with the problem at hand. Tirdelck knew it, too, and he knew that both of them were aware of the fact. He felt a tiny bit of bitterness at having to play in the hands of this dreadful criminal, but he knew his chance at outsmarting his adversity was not now, for now he had no choice. His mission anyhow, was to eliminate Ms.Robotic Medusa, anything beyond that was just a result of his social responsibility, in fact, not even that, it was just his conscience.

Tirdelck cursed as the robot came into view. It was an exact replica of all the myths, if it were not that he knew it was a robot, he would've dealt with it as an organic entity. But that came as a secondary inference- what caught Tirdelck's eyes primarily was the helpless child pinned to the corner of the junction between the alleyway and the main road. The child was trying hard to shield his eyes, apparently aware of the abilities Robot Medusa possessed. Tirdelck snarled, a long dormant, cold surge of anger taking hold of himself.

Composing himself and shaking off all traces of emotion which he knew would distort the needed logic in tackling the robot, Tirdelck assessed the situation he was in, which incidentally was not very promising. Any impetuous action to incapacitate the robot, whose abilities were as yet unknown, would undoubtably cause harm to the child. Tirdelck's thoughts speedily wandered over the weapons and abilities in his arsenal- none of which were adequate against a non-organic entity, what more a highly powerful mechanical Medusa. Time was ticking, and every milisecond which passed was a milisecond with the child in increasing mortal peril.

Tirdelck's train of thought, however, did not end in an impenetrable dead wall. It was just a very unappealing last resort- physical diversion. Deciding he needed to act anyhow, Tirdelck ramped up the throttle on his jetpack, descending towards the mechanical Medusa, which now had a grip on the child's hands, ready to pry them apart at any moment.

Thud.

The blow mustered by both of Tirdelck's feet was surprisingly powerful, probably a result of his residual momentum from the jetpack. It had the intended effect, as somewhere deep within the robot's core, a line of computer code was triggered- deal with the external threat. The Medusa let go of the child's hands, turning around with great speed. Tirdelck's brain would've been fried had the recoil from his two-legged attack not completely taken out his balance, resulting in his landing face-down on the hard ashphalt of the main road. Groaning in pain, Tirdelck felt a searing heat blast shoot above his neck, and his still-functioning brain recognised it as the Medusa's famous pulse of light. Silently reproaching himself for not anticipating the blowback from his diversion, Tirdelck got up, keeping his eyes tightly shut, relying on his sense of hearing.

Tirdelck figured that while the robot might be fast, but a drawback of its mechanisms was a complete sacrifice of flexible thought. Not understanding the fact that this sudden intruder was not hurt by his first pulse, it was undecided whether to continue pulsing or to physically eliminate him, the Medusa merely stood there, the replica snakes on its head hissing with vigour. That was when Tirdelck recalled the fact that this robot had sufficient intelligence to pry apart the child's shielding hands. Which meant he himself was living on borrowed time.

Tirdelck noticed the child run towards his parents out of the corner of his eye, whith other bystanders whipping out their phones, presumably to contact the authorities. Tirdelck knew it was a futile gesture. Although the Shinreian authorities, efficient as they were, had impeccably quick response times, by the time they arrived, it was either his corpse that lied on the road, or what remained of the dreadful robot facing him which he could not see. There was no course of action to contemplate, no factors to be taken into consideration- Tirdelck had to attack and incapacitate the robot.

Eyes still shut, Tirdelck felt stabs of pain erupting all over his body as thorns of heat pierced his skin- the Medusa had resorted to continued pulses. Tirdelck could hear its rapid footsteps heading towards him. With a flash of hands, he had whipped out his trusty AFCs, and entering an elevated state of energy, clenched his fingers and shut out all his senses, willing the ten thimble-like contraptions on his fingertips to channel his power towards all gas particles in the vicinity, hooking onto their vibration, returning it to his body, and..

In half a moment, Tirdelck unclenched his fingers, letting lose a wave of pure heat towards the robot. The stabs of pain he had felt were immediately alleviated by the sudden drop in temperature due to his utilization of the orbital energy of all particles around him. Tirdelck felt weirdly energized from his attack, and his hearing went into overdrive. He heard a peculiar snap, which he deduced to be melting metal loosening the links between the robot's upper and lower bodies. For a few seconds, Tirdelck merely observed the effects of his attack, and then his heart fell.

The footsteps had resumed, albeit slower, although he no longer felt the pulses of light. His attack had merely weakened the robot, which was coming towards him.

Deciding that while the robot had outstanding stamina, there was a weakness robots could not compare to living people- metal could not stand the rapid changes in temperature, which was exactly what Tirdelck had in mind. Again clenching his fingers and shutting out all his senses, wisps of vapour could be seen exiting his AFCs as Tirdelck imposed his internal energy on the nitrogen particles around him, already cooled by his previous offensive. The process took longer this time, and Tirdelck had to push himself to the maximum before he felt the particles responding satisfyingly.

With a flourish of his hands, he unleashed a linear blast of liquid nitrogen, some of which had crystallized into ice, towards the mechanical Medusa. Hearing a series of creaks as the metal body of the Medusa contracted, Tirdelck could not resist opening his eyes, and he saw his cryogenic blast had resulted in a dreadfully contorted Medusa whose midriff was a mangled mass of metal. A trace of a smile curled his lips as he saw the robot's eyes frozen with what seemed like nitrogen eyes. It was but a temporary measure, for the ice was already vaporizing. Amid all this, Tirdelck felt his stomach churn and his skin tingle with exhaustion, his breath coming in short gasps. Atomic manipulation was no small feat, and coupled with the drop in pressure, Tirdelck's constitution was on the verge of collapse.

But he could not afford to give up the fight. The robot's stamina was indeed extraordinary, for although gaping holes had popped out of the mangled metal in its midriff, it was still moving towards Tirdelck.

His senses not registering the gasps from the bystanders surrounding him, Tirdelck's tired faculties were completely concentrated on the robot. His brain, however, was whirring at full speed. Having exhausted all his abilities, Tirdelck knew trying another nuclear feat would result in fatal atmospheric imbalance. No, he would have to resort to a weapon he had never used before. Reaching behind himself, for his latchpack, Tirdelck staggered as the robot made a sudden leap at him, tackling him to the ground.

Desperately struggling to reach for his blaster, Tirdelck put up a vicious fight with the weakened robot. He noticed the nitrogen crystals set deep in his eye sockets were vaporizing quicker than ever, which would result in a recovery of the robot's innate pulsing ability and eventually his defeat, which meant death. Searching for alternatives, some primitive instinct made Tirdelck muster a last-ditch effort, which took up the last vestiges of his strength.

Headbutting the robot's chest, which sent a stunning pain up his skull and having no effect on the robot whatsoever, the action did buy him some time. Tirdelck singlehandedly dragged a sleek, gunlike weapon from his latchpack and stubbed the barrel into the robot's midriff. The mechanical Medusa had both hands on Tirdelck, shoulders, about to push him backwards for a final blow, when Tirdelck's other hand reached for the blasters frontal trigger, and both his index fingers pressed lightly.

These sequence of events, taking place in less than two seconds, seemed to expand in the space-time continuum as the robot collapsed, the snakes on its head ceasing to hiss, Tirdelck's double-triggered Gamma Blaster still stuck in its mangled midriff. The radiation from his backup weapon, which would only have caused nausea in a capable opponent had completely killed the robot's electronics. What made the mechanical killer so deadly had eventually become its downfall.

Tirdelck gasped for exhaustion, his head sank onto the ashphalt, and the world went black. The medical functions of his latchpack did not inject any artifical medication into his bloodstream, registering his condition merely as "sleep".
