KRU - Chapter seven - page thirty fourDante glanced toward the door when he heard it open again, wondering why the Elder had come back so quickly. Rue walked in first and couldn't help but smile at the Commander, thinking of something sarcastic to say but decided against it considering the seriousness of the situation.KRU - Chapter seven - page thirty four by *madKazzie
She nodded at Kyra, who gave her a thankful look, never having the chance to thank her friend for getting Dante out of the trouble he was in.
"Glad to see you're well again, brother." Rue said as she leaned down to give Dante a hug.
"Thanks for getting my sorry ass out of there." he replied.
"You know I got your back." she smirked. "Listen, Dante, I know you need your rest but we have an urgent matter to discuss." Rue added, playfulness now gone. "I just received a call from First Sergeant Sykes."
"This outta be a good one." Kyra scoffed, crossing her arms and leaning back in her chair.
"I know right? She claims she followed Viktor to one of the major storage facilities in the North w
KRU - Chapter seven - page thirty threeThe conversation came to a halt when Rue's personal computer started to beep. She pulled it out of her pocket and looked at the Elder apologetically. "Excuse me, Elder."KRU - Chapter seven - page thirty three by *madKazzie
He nodded as she turned away but still stayed near him. She accepted the call and her eyes widened when Harley's face appeared on the screen.
"Sergeant Major! Oh thank the Great Elder." Harley breathed in relief.
She appeared to be huddled in the corner of a dark room and her voice seemed nervous and kept to a whisper.
"First Sergeant, are you alright?" Rue asked with concern.
"No, I'm in trouble, Rumer." she whispered frantically. "I don't have much time but I found Von Strouse and the machine that everyone was talking about. I had followed Viktor in hopes that he would lead me to it once I found out about Luka's plan. I tried calling the Commander but his phone is off, I think Luka might have killed him, I don't know." she explained in a panic, looking around the room anxious
KRU - Chapter seven - page thirty twoElder Warwick walked out of Dante's room to allow him and Kyra to have some privacy. He immediately noticed Rue leaning against the wall next to the door, waiting for an update on Dante's condition. She pushed off the wall when he turned to look at her and she suddenly felt flustered, which didn't go unnoticed by the Elder.KRU - Chapter seven - page thirty two by *madKazzie
"Elder Warwick." she said with surprise as she slightly bowed her head with respect.
"I believe we have met earlier but I am afraid we weren't properly introduced." he stated, holding out his hand.
"Oh! Um.." she paused to clear her throat nervously. "I am Sergeant Major Rumer Paige." she replied, taking his hand into hers and giving it a firm squeeze.
"Ah, so you are the famous Rue that Dante speaks so fondly of." he smiled.
"Yeah, that's me. He and I are really close friends. Hell, he's like a big brother to me. Taught me how to fly several years before he had his accident." she said shyly, as she rubbed the back of her neck.
KRU - Chapter seven - page thirty one"You don't know shit." he growled. "I don't have sentimental attachments."KRU - Chapter seven - page thirty one by *madKazzie
"I don't believe that, not with me anyway." she purred, running a hand up his chest.
He looked down at her as he roughly grabbed her wrist and smirked at her. "Don't doubt that I would put a bullet in your fucking head if I had the slightest reason. You mean nothing to me." he stated heartlessly. "I only keep you around because you're a decent piece of ass."
She shoved him out of her face. "You're such a dick. I don't know why I stick around half the time."
"You stick around because you're a useless bitch that needs to leech off of others to validate your own existence." he raged. "You know, I fucking hate cunts like you; using their body to get what they want. That is the difference between you and Norelli. She fights for what she wants and has earned everything the respectable way. You're just the biggest self-entitled whore imaginable, always up my fucking

"So what took you so long?" Harley snapped, putting a hand on her hip.
He glared at her and said "I had some loose ends that needed to be dealt with."
"Looks like some of those loose ends kicked your ass." Viktor laughed.
"Shut up." Luka barked, pointing at his brother in a threatening manner causing him to stop laughing. "Everything is still on schedule. Now we can contact the Commander of the Empire's army and prepare for war." Luka stated angrily as his hands and tail continued to twitch, which didn't go unnoticed by Harley.
"Well, lets clean you up before we get this party started." Harley laughed, stepping aside to allow Luka to walk to one of the private rooms.
He told Viktor to continue on with what he had been doing while Luka was out and then left with Harley close behind.

"Are you going to be alright, darlin?" Teaka asked.
Z only grunted again as a reply and slowly walked out of his room. She looked at the Wronen brothers hopelessly. "What are we going to do for him?"
"All we can do is make him as comfortable as possible until we find that machine. Perhaps the Elders can do something for him in the meantime. I can continue to share my energy with him as well if it will help." Astrum stated. "But we have to stay focused on our mission and prepare for our arrival."
"What will you have us do?" Teaka asked, feeling out of the loop again.
"Nico has already been checking our weapons inventory, yes?" Astrum asked Switch, who nodded in response.
"I've been helping him with that as well." Switch replied.
Astrum quickly explained the plan to Teaka and asked her to make the necessary preparations while he
KRU - Chapter seven - page twenty eight"What?! Why?! What's wrong with him?" Switch blurted out, shooting up from his chair, followed by Astrum.KRU - Chapter seven - page twenty eight by *madKazzie
"That's just it, I..I don't know." she replied as they all ran to Z's room.
They reached Z's door and found him curled up on the floor in the middle of his room, as he was too big to sleep in his bed. His breathing was slow and it seemed as if he was losing muscle mass.
"I don't know anything about Korithian biology but he doesn't appear sick or injured in any way. His heart rate is very low. I have no idea if this is normal for his kind or what." she said with worry as she ran a hand through her hair.
Astrum crouched by Z's shoulder and placed a hand on the Korithian's forehead. "He is not ill, nor is he in pain." he stated.
"What could it be?" Switch asked.
The older Blue looked over his shoulder up at his brother with sorrow. "He's dying, Switch. From old age."
"No...no, not now." Switch replied in disbelief as he crouched by his b
KRU - Chapter seven - page twenty seven"Exactly. You just focus on getting your ass back to her in one piece." Switch stated, leaning back in his chair. "So what's the plan then?"KRU - Chapter seven - page twenty seven by *madKazzie
"First we need to get to the Monastery and meet with Elder Warwick. We also need to know if Luka has gotten to Commander Romanov. Once we have the information we need about Luka's course of action since his arrival, we will go from there. Has Teaka been keeping up with current events through the media?" Astrum asked.
"Yeah. No word on the Empire yet. Their army is still fighting the Rebels."
"Luka is sure taking his time with challenging the Empire. What could he possibly be waiting for?" Astrum mused.
"Maybe the Red bastard is dead from the radiation poisoning." Switch scoffed.
"Let's be honest here, we are not so lucky." Astrum replied. "We need to assume he's still alive and up to something."
"True." Switch agreed. "What about Mother, Father, and Moey? Should we let them know we're bac

KRU Chapter one - page one A military cargo ship cut through the misty clouds, blending in with the dull grey sky. Now responsible for the payload that was strapped down in crates inside the cargo bay, the crew of Korithium Retrieval Unit specialists made their way to the designated base for processing. With more than a few lives hanging in the balance and a paycheck to set them for life waiting at the end of the mission last thing they expected was a mutiny. Last one they thought to instigate the mutiny was their own Commanding officer. There he stood though, a look more serious then they had ever seen on his face.
This is only a rough draft, I'm just getting all my ideas down in writing and then I'll go back and fix it. C:

|What are your characters?|
They are Burillian, an original species created by me.
Are they fan characters of (insert game/show/movie/comic)?
Are they aquatic? The blue ones look aquatic.
No. Their skin is soft and non-slimy, just like ours. They don't have gills or fins. Just no.
How did you come up with them?
This explains a little about the process of how I came up with them. Astrum was the first Burillian created in December of 2011. The rest of the characters soon followed. The whole process lasted over 5 months before I finally became satisfied with the design.
Why are there red, blue, green and purple ones?
Burillians have 4 races; red, blue, green and purple. Each race is born in a different region on their planet and each race are given specific jobs. Reds are the more physical race. They make up the military, physical labor, grunt work, etc. Blues are the more intellectual race. They make up the teachers, the scientists, doctors, etc. They are assigned the jobs that require a higher academic level. Greens are the caretakers, the farmers, the nurses, etc. They're the more gentle of the races. And finally, Purples are the "enlightened ones", the Elders of the species. They have a higher understanding of the energy that makes up their species and the universe. They spend their entire life training in combat and meditation and once they reach a certain age, they become an Elder on the council.
They also have slightly different features. The Blues have more rounded antenna/energy receptors and tail tips, Reds have more sharper ones, Greens have more sharper ones as well but they're slightly curved towards their head as well as a sharper tip on their tails, and Purples have angled ones that are slightly outward.
Females look slightly different than the males. They don't have patches on their skin and they have white hair.
Do they all have patches of another color on their skin?
Only the males.
What are the glowing things?
Those are the very life force of a Burillian. Burillians are very sensitive to the energy around them and are capable of using the energy as a defense mechanism. They can send out "shockwaves" of energy. Kind of like a bomb without the fiery destruction, just the force of the explosion. Hope that makes sense.
If the light dims, they are sick or dying. The light also reflects how they're feeling. It gets more intense as they get angrier/excited.
They are also capable of transferring their energy to another being to help heal them if they are sick or wounded.
If you were to touch them, it feels like their skin. Think of it as putting your finger over a flashlight, the light shines through. That's kind how it works except the light is coming from the inside of their body.
They also need the light to see in the dark because they have very poor night vision. Night time on their planet is our dusk, it doesn't go completely dark so they have no need for night vision.
Can you explain what they have on their heads and why they're there?
This ref explains everything.
Do they have any special abilities?
Yes, they have a few. Because they're so sensitive to energy, just by touching another being, they can feel that person's energy. They can tell with a simple touch of your skin if you're sick, how you're feeling emotionally, and can even tell if you're lying to them.
They can also use their energy to defend themselves by sending out shockwaves. They can be as small or as big as they please but the bigger it is, the more of a risk they take with their life.
What is their diet?
They are strictly carnivores. They can eat any kind of meat but they prefer fresh, raw, red meat. They're not fond of fish.
Are they part of your story K.R.U?
Yes, they are all the main characters and the story revolves around them.
Why do they have such small pupils?
Their pupils don't work like ours. They stay the same size, hence why they can't see in the dark. But they don't need to when they give off their own light.
How long do they live?
150 years on average.
How tall are they?
Males are between 5'5" and 6'5" and females are between 5'1" and 5'11". There are no physical abnormalities.
Are they an open species/Can I make one?
I'm sorry but no. Not until I legally copyright the species!
Why did you pick Red for your Bursona?
I'm not smart enough to be a Blue, I don't give enough of a shit to be a Green, and I'm not wise enough to be a Purple.
