The Power Within

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

The Power Within

Postby RedRover » Wed Nov 18, 2015 10:18 pm

Location: Snowy crater on the planet Freon
Synopsis: A recent planetary bombardment by Space Nutzees has left the planet of Freon a frozen wasteland riddled with craters. Freon military police conduct strict patrols around the remaining encampments to keep civilians safe. Hoping for a small victory to lift the spirits of their shattered people, a patrol has tracked a suspicious figure deep into one of the craters.

Image
Traveling for days, a weary figure searches for refuge from the cold and those who pursue him.

Image
He approaches an opening in the crater wall that looks like a suitable place for shelter.

Image
The figure turns to check if he is being followed...

Image
then enters the mouth of the cave.

Two members of the patrol follow tracks to the cave.

Image
Mustached Policeman - Looks like one of the bomb shells opened up some sort of cave
Other Policeman - Guess whoever it is found shelter, their tracks go straight inside.

Image
Mustached Policeman - Better call it in to the Captain.

Image
Other Policeman -Scouting party reporting. Scouting party reporting. Over.
Radio -This is Commander Ranker. What's your status. Over.
Other Policeman -We have identified location, I repeat, we have identified location. It appears suspect has entered some sort of cave. Over.
Commander Ranker -Requesting coordinates. Over.
Other Policeman -63.2167° N, 141.9060° W. Over

Image
The figure enters a deep ruin within the cave. A stone circle with an ice formation stands at the dead center of the room. Two statues stand at the foot of the walls, overlooking the room.

Image
Image
He begins to set his things down to investigate the room.

Image
The figure takes off his snow-hood to reveal his identity as the Butcher, an infamous serial killer.

Image
Intrigued, the Butcher walks over to feel the stone. A jagged edge catches his finger, causing a small cut.
Butcher -Ah shit!

Image
He quickly hops up in surprise. The ground begins to soak from below with a red fluid.
Butcher -That can't be...

Image
The all to familiar smell of iron floods the Butcher's senses as he watches what now appears to be a pool quickly fill with crimson liquid.
Butcher -It is... that's blood alright, and a lot of it.

Image
Just as he takes another step back, the flow of blood stops, filling the stone pool to the brim.

Image
Out of an icy formation in the center of what can only be described as a kiddie pool of nightmares, shoots a purple flame.

Image
The flame rises as if it is attempting to lick the ceiling of the cave. The Butcher can only stand speechless.

Image
As fast as it appeared, the flame crystalizes into a translucent rock formation.

Image
The Butcher stares in shock for a minute. Suddenly low whispers emerge from the stone, beckoning the Butcher closer. His body begins to move on its own as his mind fixates on the stone.

Image
The stone draws him as the whisper began to turn into shouts invading his skull. He is no longer in control as he reaches over the pool to make contact with the gem's glowing surface.

Image
Before his hands can grasp it, the rock cracks, and the same purple fire which rose from the pool moments ago lunges at the Butcher. The flame penetrates i his body

Image
and the force knocks him onto his back, where he's knocked out cold.

Image
The Butcher regains consciousness and feels a tingling in his left hand. his had has transformed, but a bigger transformation has happened within... a great power now resides within.

Image
He sits up to the sound of footsteps running into the room behind him.
Mustached Policeman - Stop right there!
Other Policeman - Don't try anything stupid, we will not hesitate to shoot you!

Image
Mustached Policeman - Frank, you cuff him while I search his things.
Policeman Frank - No Sudden movement. We are gonna take you to our commander
The Butcher - Is that the same commander who's been following me for days?
Policeman Frank -Just shut up and don't resist.

Image
The Butcher - It's you who'll do the shutting up
Mustached Policeman -Fuck! No!! Frank!!

Image
The Butcher loped the head of the policeman in one fell swoop. He turned to the remaining policeman.

Image
Mustached Policeman -Who the hell... no what the hell are you?
The Butcher I'm the Butcher.

Image
The Policeman takes a desperate shot that is met with a projected tans-purple energy shield.

Image
Before the officer can get another shot off, he is met with an energy blade in the gut.

Image
The butcher takes a moment to admire his work.

Image
He then grabs his revolver

Image
and goes to meet the company that awaits outside of the cave.

The commander and remains of the squad arrive on scene.
Commander - Dammit, they must've gone in.

Image
Commander  - Set formation around the cave entrance!
Military Policemen - Sir, yes Sir!
Commander - Hopefully private Frank and Oswald were able to detain the S-Class criminal, but we need to prepare for the worst...

Image
Just then, the Butcher walked out of the cave entrance, raising his arms and dropping his revolver to the ground.
Commander - Halt! Do not move! By order of the Freon Military Police, you are under arrest!
Butcher - I'll give you all a chance to walk away with your lives. Drop your weapons and walk away.
Commander -You're in no position to bargin. Now get on your knees!

Image
Butcher - I didn't want to let you live anyways, no fun that is!
Just like that butcher shot two physic disks into the chests of the two policemen, ripping through their internal organs and killing them instantly.
Commander - Fuck! This wasn't in the reports!

Image
The commander fires to kill, but the shot is absorbed by a projected shield

Image
The butchers unleashes a blade of purple flame which is met by the commander's energy sword. The flame begins to quickly overwhelm the commander who is looking for a quick escape.

Image
Performing a feat of agility and grace, the kind that earned him top marks at the academy, the commander flips over the flame before it can consume him.

Image
However, his is landing is a little sloppy on the icy tundra.

Image
He rolls to a position to defend himself as the butcher advances.

Image
The Butcher performs a powerful lunging strike which the commander attempts to block

Image
The strike is too strong...

Image
and the energy sword is freed from the commander's grasp.

Image
Before he can reach to reclaim his blade, the Butcher pushes it away with a stream of violet fire.

Image
The butcher approaches the defeated commander,

Image
grabs him,

Image
and lifts him off the ground.
Butcher - Looks like this didn't turn out the way you'd imagined, huh?
Commander - You will ne..

Image
Before the commander could finish his retort, the Butcher divorced the commander's legs from his torso
Butcher - Ooops! Guess I'll never know what ya had to say...

Image
He let the halves drop to the floor.

Image
Turning his back from the carnage, the Butcher began so slowly walk off

Image
Suddenly a whisper spoke in his head, the same whisper as before
??? - Ssservant of chaosss... your work.. is not complete... Go fourth! Reign in a new era... an era... of death...
And with sudden clairvoyance, the Butcher knew what he had to do.

Image
In a flash of purple, he was gone.

Image
To Be continued...

Continued

Nice ice cave. I also like that pool of blood, which reminded me of that one scene from the Hellboy flick.
