Having survived the TQZ and PROX-E Ghost’s ministrations, the Firewall team — posing as the Red Devils — successfully robbed the Ashoka 22. In a matter of minutes, they breached the train’s security and thoroughly neutralized its mercenary guards, making off with their cargo.
During the raid, Sam Franklin, ex-Direct Action mercenary, came knife-to-knife with an old friend. Insisting on a ‘man’s fight,’ he held off the majority of the mercenary team while his Firewall compatriots secured their target cargo.
Having completed the first stage of their mission, the Sentinels are being ordered to take some downtime, and stay off the radar while they look into the location of the Red Devils’ homebase. And after all, their favors are coming due.
- James – TOM (The Optimal Man). An AI programmed in a lunar laboratory, designed to be able to crack any digital protection and retrieve any data (as well as be the best psychotherapist in the known ‘verse). His accent algorithms are slowly degrading.
- Travis – John Clastion. Survivor of the Fall, he runs a delivery service on Mars, preferring to use his feet instead of mundane transport. He also knows all about the drugs of the transhuman future and the criminals and cartels that supply them.
- Kevin – Griswold Stuart. Griswold Stuart is a 23rd century man, born in a 21st century man’s body, living in an AF10 world. Reformed by Firewall, he did his best to adapt to his new world and his new place in it. Formerly a programmer, business executive, and playboy, he is no longer sure of his own memories, much less his identity.
- Josh – Sam Franklin. Originally a police officer with a wife, house, and the American Dream. Left the force when he realized how corrupt it was and signed up with Direct Action. After a long service that cost him his body and some of his memories, he works freelance for anyone who can pay, looking for his wife and his missing time.
- Matt – Noah Lucas. A kangaroo uplift egohunter and x-caster who escaped from Earth during the fall. Now works towards making sure no uplifts are abused or exploited in the same way he was before the end of the world worked in his favor.
