"Drop Night"
Aboard the Valkyrie "Spitfire"

Daniel looked over his squad, he looked each of the men that made up his band of "Heroes"
He looked over his medic "Doctor Nick. He was short, much shorter than the unnaturally tall Daniel.
He was the kind of guardsmen you read about in stories, he had a longing to get out of war and go back to his family. He was a drug addict, but that didn't matter to Daniel, all that mattered to Daniel was that it didn't distract him from the mission. It never had, but now that Daniel thought about it, the burns must be causing him more pain as he grew older.
But no matter, Daniel found the man was good at poker and he had lost a months salary to the bastard. But what really worried Daniel was the fact that against such enemies as the renowned Inquisitor Michaelangelo and the Sisters, he might falter and surrender, all he had to do was "repent" his sins and they would throw him back home at the end of the war.

Then Daniels eyes came over Gus, He was the second youngest soldier in this operation. Yet Daniel trusted him with his life, just like he did with every other member of this squad, except the Techy.
He saw the look in Gus' eyes, he was fearing the fact that as soon as they jumped out of this Valk, the chances of him surviving this operation without being wounded were practically nil.
But Daniel didn't care what he thought, just as long as Daniel kept the boys mind busy.

Daniel patted Gringion as he walked past him, the man visibly flinched at the fact of Daniel beiung so "friendly" Daniel had no problem with Gringion, he needed a man in his squad that was silent and deadly, it was good for the rest of the men, kept them in the present. He was a strange man, Daniel didn't know much about the man, and he didn't like revealing anything personal. Daniel kept walking across the cargo bay.

He looked at the youngest member of his squad "Hawk Eye"
He was a young man, not much older than Daniels son back home. "Hawk Eye" hated the fact that he was the youngest, yet he did have a talent for command. No matter how this mission turned out, Daniel would request that he get promoted, being a special forces dog wasn't for "Hawk Eye"
He sat next to "Hawk Eye" and yelled to him over the whine of the engine.
'You're gonna enjoy this Alec. Lots of cover for sniping.'
Daniel laughed as he stood up and walked towards the cabin, he wanted to find out how close they were to the drop zone.

As he walked towards the cabin, he looked at the Magos, he creeped Daniel out, he was a mechanical monstrousity. Yet Daniel was glad for the fact that he would be able to tell them where to place the charges.

Daniel opened the cabin door and looked in at the pilot. There was no co-pilot as all the men on the Valk could fly the Valkyrie for a period of time.
'Hey Daniel, could you throw me a bottle of my fine wine, I've been meaning to...'
Daniel was puzzled, the pilot was always a long talker, he never shut up like this.
'What is it Greg,' Daniel said as he walked into the cabin.
'We have a pair of Lightning fighters inbound for us, get your team outta here now!' Greg yelled as a missile streaked in front of the cabin.
'Good god. Good luck Greg, the Emperor protects,' Daniel said as he grabbed his pipe out of his coat pocket and lit it.

He walked into the middle of the hanger and yelled but one word.
Wit that Daniel walked to the weapons rack, grabbed Jimmy and strapped on a special forces glider.
He then took a running jump out of the Valk and watched as a pair of Lightnings flew over the top of the "Spitfire and dropped a load of missiles towards it.
Daniel activated the glider and a pair of mechanical "Wings" sprouted from his backpack and he flew down towards the ground.
He could only hope his squad made it out.


All: In the valk talk to each other and all the usual stuff you do in a normal airliner trip. You do make it out of the Valk and land roughly in the same area. Introduce yourselves to each other and pack your gliders back into your backpacks, never know when you might need 'em :wink:

Doctor Nick: Your first worry is for injured men and as you run around making sure everyone is okay, you nearly run into the Magos, as you make your apologies, you examine him. You then move on examining every one else, thinking of where they come from, and how to best treat them if (When.) they are wounded

Gus: As you land you try to compose yourself, if anybody saw the look of fear in your eye as you dropped you would never live it down. trying to take your mind off it, you try to make conversation with another member of the squad.

Gringion: As you land you are irritated by the fact that everybody is taking the landing as a chance to get to know each other and that nobody is making an motion to move to cover.
You find refuge in the fact that the Magos is also the strong-but-silent type.

Hawk Eye: You feel pumped after your first "danger drop" and you want to go and kill some enemies right away but you get the feeling that this is just an evening stroll to the other members of the squad, try to communicate the importance of the mission to them.

Magos: Take stock of the situation and the abilities of the men in this unit. avoid communicating with anyone. But when a man byt the name of Doctor Nick bumps into you, what is your reaction.

Sorry for the crappy start. I'll make it better.
