Stage 14: Risk
Inside the G-1 mobile base, Cornelia was infuriated, having failed to eradicate the terrorist who have control of Ashfrod Academy Gymnasium, and several buildings close to the front entrance. The fact that Los Guerrero's has a nuclear weapon in a heavy populated area has her thinking hard of her next course of action. Euphemia oversaw her sisters behavior and began to feel a sudden chill streaming down her back. "Your highness, we must evacuate the Tokyo settlement." said Darlton. "But if we were to do that Los Guerrero's will set of the S.E.G.F.A.D and millions will perish, including us." said Euphemia. "Even after General Guerrero's death; Los Guerrero's leadership has grown stronger and their tactics have evolved into something more sinister then we can ever imagine," said Guilfurd, "During the skirmish, they have set up booby traps that has killed hundreds of unarmed civilians along with our soldiers, they even killed two generals." "So then what do we do now, sit around and do nothing?" Darlton answered. Cornelia was still trying to figure out this obstacle she was facing.
Meanwhile the Black Knights and the Brotherhood of Lycans were preparing for battle. Commander Knightwolf observing a large crate being carried out of one of his Vulchter VTOL gunship. "A special weapon Commander?" said Zero. "Yes, a weapon that will give us an advantage against Los Guerrero's." Commander Knightwolf. The crate was opened and in it was a large, black colored missile with a blood red warhead. "Say hola to the Blackout Missile," said Commander Knightwolf and he patted its hull, "This missile will send out an electromagnetic pulse that will wipe out power in a thirty mile radius, it can take out that S.E.G.F.A.D along with knightmares, even their communications." "This weapon seems to be a risk commander." said Zero. "It is, but it is our only hope." Commander Knightwolf argued.
A B.O.L soldier approached them. "Sir, the Gideon’s are here." said the B.O.L soldier. "Excellente, we are going to need them." Zero was curious from hearing that. "Gideon’s?" Zero asked. "What was that weapon you offered? The Raiko? We have something better," said Commander Knightwolf, "You'll see them during the battle." All his commanding officers aligned themselves in formation in front of Commander Knightwolf and Zero; Rojas, Carlos, Marco, Ernesto, Paula, and Dominic stood at attention and waited for orders. Commander Knightwolf turned towards Zero. "Zero during the assault I better not here that you have attacked civilians or the military, because if you do then I will deal with you personally." Commander Knightwolf threatened Zero.
Los Guerrero's has taken over several residential and office buildings in a six block radius. The streets were littered with destroyed Knightmares and tanks, lifeless bodies of Britannian soldiers, Los Guerrero operatives and Britannina civilians who were unfortunate was scattered throughout the street. Buildings and cars that were caught in the skirmish were either ablaze or riddled with bullet holes. Los Guerrero's barricaded the streets they have taken over with trucks and have their Sutherlands and Guardian Angels guarding their outposts. A group of captured Britannian soldiers stood in front of a firing squad. "You brits know why you're here? It is because of your crimes." said one operative before the firing squad killed the captured soldiers.
Cornelia was still pondering an attack plan, but it seemed impossible to achieve victory. "Viceroy we are still negotiating to release the women and children; however, they are standing firm on their demands." said one of her officers. "If we show them any weakness, then we are telling them that it is okay to commit terrorism." Cornelia said disdainfully. "Then do we use attack on all sides?" asked Darlton. "That action has already proven to be a failure and they already threaten to detonate the S.E.G.F.A.D if we were to retaliate." said Guilfurd. Cornelia grunted from those remarks. "We have to do something now." Cornelia thought to herself. As she pondered her next course of action, a transmission came from an unknown source. "Viceroy we're receiving a message from an outside source." said an officer. From aggressive to curious, she wondered who was sending the transmission. "Play the transmission." ordered Darlton. The played the transmission and on the transponder screen appeared Commander Knightwolf and Zero sitting next to each other. Everyone in the command center gasped. "Viceroy Cornelia we have something that will assist you in taking out the S.E.G.F.A.D." said Commander Knightwolf. Cornelia was angered by the very image of them. "What makes you think I will need assistance from a vigilante and a terrorist?" Cornelia angrily said. "Cornelia, the Sakuradite Empowered Ground Force Annihilation Device was first used in the battle of Louisiana," said Zero, "From what I understand, that same device is being used in this attack and all of your attempts to eradicate the terrorist and to retrieve the S.E.G.F.A.D has were inadequate," Cornelia gritted her teeth, "Now you have only two options: either let us assist you in defeating Los Guerreros or let a portion of the Tokyo Settlement become a nuclear wasteland." Zero explained.
Cornelia gritted her teeth even tighter, she felt that this was humiliation that she was unable to achieve victory. "I refuse to..." but Cornelia was interrupted by Euphemia, "Commander Knightwolf, what exactly is your plan?" Euphemia asked. Cornelia was mortified from hearing her question. "The plan that we have in mind is to fire an EMP missile on Los Guerrero's, rendering their Knightmares, their S.E.G.F.A.D, communications, radar useless; however, there is a risk." said Commander Knightwolf. "A risk?" Euphemia reiterated. "Yes, the EMP will knockout power within a thirty mile radius and since you're within that radius, it will also affect your forces." Commander Knightwolf explained. "If that is the case, will you give me your word that you or the Black Knights will not attack any of our military personal?" asked Euphemia. "You have our word your highness." said Zero and the transmission stopped.
After they sent their transmission to the viceroy, Commander Knightwolf and Zero went their separate ways. The thought that Los Guerrero's has a nuclear device still lingers in his mind. One of his Alpha Paladins stood behind him. "What is it Rojas?" said Commander Knightwolf. Rojas looked around to see if no one was close enough to listen. "Can I speak with you in private?" he asked. Commander Knightwolf nodded and they both walked to somewhere seclude. "This does not add up, General Guerrero is dead; yet, Los Guerrero's maintains a strong leadership Roberto." said Rojas. "Look I see where you are coming from and I have deduced a theory on who is commanding Los Guerrero's: Diego Vega," said Roberto, "He did escape and he was second in command, so it will make sense." "Yes that maybe true, but how did they get their hands on a super weapon?" asked Rojas. "We'll get our answers soon, we need to plan out our attack." Roberto answered. After their small debriefing, they went towards the Vultcher VTOL.
