Deep in VR, the icon of the hacker sent to assist Mod screamed and vanished. He stopped, and just as he realized what happened a large wound appeared on his icon's leg. "Crap." He thinks, clenching his jaw in pain. He switches back to AR and looks around the room where he's jacked in. A large explosion had torn the room to shreds, and shrapnel had severed his femoral artery. Blood sprayed from the injury with every heart beat. Only a couple of minutes before he bled out. He activated his earpiece. "Imouto, can you hear me?" He huffed through gritted teeth. High above Essen, atop Lofwyr's back, Maisie heard Mod's pained voice. "Mod, what's wrong?" "I'm hurt, Maisie. Bad. I don't have enough time to reprogram the system. I have to shut it down." "What happened to the other hacker?" Mod looked to his left and saw the other hacker severed almost completely in half by a plate of plasteel. "Dead." "Hang on, Ani. We'll get help!" "No time. I have to set the program now before I bleed out. Love you, kid. Wreak some havoc." Maisie grew quiet, then angry. "Lofwyr...let's bring that oversized son of a woof down." "There is no time! We must get you to the Primer!" The great dragon's voice boomed in Maisie's head. "Then do it!" Maisie snapped. The gold dragon let out a roar and dived into the fray. Back down at the jackpoint, Mod's body went limp as he switched back to VR. He set the program to shut the system down. He went to jack out, but was hit by a surprise attack from IC, jamming his connection open. Mod gasped as everything went black. Outside, every drone and guard linked to the system shut down and crumpled to the ground. Mod's body began to twitch and spasm from the massive surge of biofeedback as the system crashed. The seizure only stopped after the force of the spasms ripped the wires from his datajack. His body went limp and his fried brain forced a few more ragged breaths before his body finally succumbed to blood loss. Ok, so few explanations here. "Imouto" is Japanese for "Little Sister", and "Ani" is "Big Brother". They are not actually related, but are like family to each other. As for the rest, I'll allow you to speculate. ;)
