The Hadrion Device
Money would always be money, regardless of the source. That was something that had been taught to Maxsuz decades ago, back when he had first gotten to Hera. Everyone does what they need to survive. Morals usually get in the way of doing what must be done.
The bounty hunter had just finished a job for Vegeta's Armed Forces, yet only a few days later, he was already in service for the Tuffle army. Some would say that was betrayal, or even a lack of character from his part. But the truth is, loyalty was never something in the Argin's mind. He would work for those who payed him, and that was it.
As for the current job, it was simpler than the previous one, and more fitting of the Tuffle stereotype. He had been contacted by an official to go to the Lost Metropolis and retrieve some lost technology. There, he would receive further information as to what exactly he was looking for and where.
The Renegade arrived at the destination near midday. The sun was high up in the sky, with scorching temperatures and a dry wind blowing strong through the ruined buildings. Maxsuz landed his Attack Pod at the top of one of the still up skyscrapers. No one should be able to find his ship there. Exiting his pod, he picked up a briefcase from within and walked to the ledge of the structure. He grabbed a small ear phone from his pocket and put in on his left ear, turning it on in sequence. The sound of static soon gave place to a woman's voice.
"Mister R, can you hear me?"
"I'm on the marked location, awaiting further instructions."
"Yes, Mister R. I believe you know about the Destron Depths?"
"I know enough. What do you need me to find there?"
"Something called The Hadrion Device and its research. It is a long lost, but revolutionary research about a machine capable of cancelling out Blutz Waves in an attempt to force the monkeys to revert back to their weak forms. It was developed by Dr. Sugapporu decades ago, but lost to the Destron Gas. We believe he actually developed a prototype and left his research down there.
Unfortunately, we cannot afford to send our own men to go look for this hypothetical item inside toxic and lawless catacombs, so that's where you come in, Mister R. Retrive the device and the research, and bring them to Hatchi City. You will be handsomely rewarded for your services to the Tuffle Cause."
"Understood. I'll be heading down to the Destron Depths right at this moment. Over and out."
The Argin turned off the ear phone and put it back in his pocket. He looked down at the metropolis. The clouds below would cover most of the city as if it was a permanent haze. Maxsuz put the briefcase below his right arm and leaned into the abyss. As he fell, the bounty hunter started running on the skyscraper's wall at high velocity. He quickly crossed the dark clouds, revealing the entirety of the devastated metropolis below.
Once he reached the height of another buildings nearby, the himônus jumped away from the skyscraper, hoping from ceilings to walls, until he reached the ground, cracking the asphalt below with his landing. Standing back up as if nothing had happened, the mercenary looked around, noticing the miasma of Destron Gas sipping from the depths into the streets.
"What a damn hole. Fits this planet like a glove."
Maxsuz opened the briefcase and picked up a gas mask with tubes filled with green liquid on both sides and put it on.
"Well, then. Let us begin."
