September 25, 2032
Avian knelt silently in the shadows of one of Berlin's many rooftops. The sun had risen a good ways, casting an orange glow over the small city. People were already moving around in the streets, some making their way to the nearby trains for work, others simply stretching their legs. But they all had one thing in common. Gas masks adorned each of their faces.
"Just like them..." Avian muttered with distaste, her hate clearly showing in those few words.
Pure influence was high and completely recognizable in Berlin. Why wouldn't it be? One of the Infected's main bases was only a few miles from here, and though they had tried to be quiet about it, they couldn't exactly go unnoticed all the time. They had to watch their tread here.
Standing up carefully, Avian pushed herself over the side of the roof and into a dark alley, folding her wings tightly to her back in the half-light. She had to be careful. Unlike some of the others, she was unable to hide her wings.
"All units, use extreme caution." She muttered into the radio headset that she wore "We don't want anyone getting caught today, and it looks like the roads are heavy with Pures."
Katherine stood with her hands clasped behind her back as she watched the countryside of Germany speed by, staring at nothing in particular as he mind wandered to their destination.
Berlin was a Pure town now, mostly. Those who lived there feared the Infection and its carriers enough to attempt to eradicate them should they be given the sufficient manpower. Which was just what they were going to get. Some of Katherine's best soldiers were on the high speed train with her and her lieutenants, and they were packing heavy guns.
"You'd better be ready..." Katherine growled, her ice blue eyes narrowing as her quiet voice was almost hidden by the rumble of the train "You and the other sick beasts can't hide from us for long..."
((OOC: All Infected will be in or around Berlin at this time, attempting to gather supplies, information, ect. If you are in the BASE (several miles east of Berlin), you will have knowledge of the train before anyone in Berlin due to technology. Pures, you are on that train ready to kick some infected tail))

SEPTEMBER 25, 2032
Kasey stood calmly on the train, looking at the scenery rushing by him as if it was just some picture. He was on a train with his armor in place and his weapons on their holsters. Berlin...a Pure dominant town and we here must protect the humans. They are beasts and as such must be disposed of. They cause nothing but harm to society and logically our only solution is to get rid of them all. Kasey was sure of what he wanted to do and that was to help eliminate the beasts at all costs. He was at the end of the train just staring out the window of the train, a bit further away from the rest of the soldiers. This is how Kasey liked it, being alone and not having to interact with anyone. He just had to stay focused and on guard at all times.
Roxy stood with armor on and her weapons correctly in place as she always had them. She enjoyed traveling because she would gaze at the scenery no matter how bleak she always somehow found some relief in it. Most of the soldiers were standing there in silence and seriousness. She let out a soft giggle everyone now and then as she thought of funny things in her head. She enjoyed observing the creatures and there manner of living. She didn't see them as monsters and beasts as the majority of people did, she saw them as very unique humans. Most of those who knew Roxy, were used to her childish behavior and accepted it. Others disliked Roxy for not taking things as seriously as she should, but she was okay with it. She looked around at all the rest of the soldiers and saw how serious they all were acting. "I guess maybe it's time to be serious..." she whispered to herself glumly. So then she focused on staying alert and on guard as everyone else. Roxy didn't like behaving like everyone else but she had to do it.

Confusion. Madness. Concealment. Survival.
Zel's eyes snapped open, then squinted slightly as his eyes struggled to adjust to the beginning of his morning. He began to push himself from the brick wall that he had propped himself onto for the night. The fresh, crisp air of the morning gusted a wind through the rips of his robes and caused him to shiver. His mind had always craved the cold, but he knew his body needed warmth, especially because of his loss of energy due to the lack of a decent meal lately. From the depths of the bleak alley, Zel observed the daily bustling commute of humans, if they could even be called that still, on the streets of Berlin.
Idiots. All of you. he thought to himself. It wasn't that he hated them, it was just his jealousy- that they could live as normal of a life as they could in this city without fear of falling to the ground dead upon being sighted by a Pure. No, they were not the ones with a demonic body such as his. As a demonstration to no one, Zel closed his eyes and lowered his head. A great pair of jet black wings erupted from his upper back and in one sudden, fluid motion exploded into his full wingspan, reaching around seven feet. He didn't need to remember that people may be watching, his energy had already drained from him just from the meager task. After a moment, the broad wings had returned inside his body, folding closely and making a slurping noise on their way in. Zel needed food, as soon as possible.
Despite this, however, he made no rush to leave the alley. Zel knew that every day was just another chance at being found. And while he knew his chances of escaping from a Pure's line of sight were fairly decent, he would never know what the next chance might bring. He reached inside his robe and felt the cool metal of his shiv. Its weight bringing the lean figure comfort. He assumed his inconspicuous position with his hands at his sides, walking with a slight limp, face towards the ground and stepped into the city clamor. If anyone had ever caught sight of his eyes.. But before the thought had completely crossed his mind, his body was lost among the flood of humans.

Aria Delia | Sova
Standing at the outskirts of the city, Aria and Sova made an odd pair. One a human stuck in an animal's body, the other, one who fancied herself more animal stuck in a humanoid body. Whatever their inner feelings, most saw both of them as monsters due to their appearance, making their current task difficult. Travel through a crowded city would be difficult when they were being hunted and didn't exactly blend in. Aria had made up for this with a flowing black cloak and an intention to stick to the shadows, but Sova's appearance and size made hiding him impossible.
Aria had tried to tell him this, but he insisted he come, and now he was stuck hiding outside the city, waiting for her to return. "Wait here," Aira said pulling the hood of her cloak low. He gave a low groan of protest, but stayed put as she walked towards the city full of beings she wanted nothing more than to stay far away from.

Berlin, Germany - September 25, 2032
Among the things that Theresa Maverick hated was riding in trains. She hated the sounds they made, she hated the way they shook, she hated being crammed into a smallish space, and she especially couldn't stand the high concentration of chatty people that tended to fill trains.
Luckily for Teri, however, most of the people on the train were highly-disciplined members of the Pure army. She would have hated to go all the way from Russia to Germany with the common rabble.
Her hard green gaze swept over the other Pures in the train with her. They were mostly serious-faced, with a few talking and joking quietly. All of them were armed and armored, and she herself was no exception. In her hands was a simple rifle, perfect for taking out far-away targets. In a holster at her hip rested a pistol, which she could use on any Infected nearby - when they arrived in Berlin, of course. She leaned back in her seat, closing her eyes in the hopes of catching a quick nap.
The outskirts of Berlin, Germany - September 25, 2032
Why can't we all just live in peace?
The thought rang in Jake's head with a sort of hollow desperation behind it. Why couldn't everyone, Infected and Pure, stop the madness, all this fighting and killing? Jake hated all the chaos, and not just because it placed him in mortal danger. He was sick and tired of how the Pure thought they were superior beings just because they were immune to a disease. What was wrong with being an Infected anyway? What was wrong with having the speed of a cheetah, the strength of an elephant, or the night vision of an owl?
He heard someone talking on the radio. More Pures on the main roads - wasn't that a surprise? Jake snorted impatiently. He sat down on a nearby crate outside a ramshackle coat shop and ate a stick of jerky he pulled from his pocket, shooting quick glances at the people who passed him by.

Avian kept herself hidden as she listened to the chatter feeding through her radio from the base not too far away. The tone of the warnings had changed, becoming more urgent and frantic.
"Quit panicking and tell me what's going on." Avian growled, keeping to the shadows of the alley. She hated it when people got like this.
Her eyes grew wider as she listened to the news. Pure soldiers had boarded a train and were headed their way. Avian knew that they were here for them, and not for the Scouring. It was too early for that...They were probably packing some heavy weaponry as well.
"Send out a warning to all troops within this area." Avian said urgently "We're about to get hit hard..."
September 25, 2032
The train slowed to a gradual stop, the brakes giving off a screech before letting of steam once it reached the station. Katherine glanced out at the town for a moment before turning and walking back into the main cabin of the train, glancing at all of the soldiers as they stood at attention.
"You all know what we're here for..." She said in her usual icy tone, her ice blue eyes moving from one soldier to the next "Don't let these things get away alive..."
Her eyes shifted to the doors as they slid open, revealing the town's train platform. She could see scared glances being shared among the townsfolk. They knew something was about to happen...
September 25, 2032
For some odd reason, the shuffling of feet today had a slightly faster pace to it. At first Zel paid no mind to his strange thought, but after walking a few more blocks down the street, he couldn't help but begin to wonder. Perhaps he was just hallucinating; he was running on an empty stomach and as Zel looked up, he saw that there was really no noticeable difference in the pace of humans walking. "Why am I even thinking about this?" he asked himself quizzically. He then proceeded to cease "limping." Whatever it was, there had to have been something different in the air today. It was then Zel realized that he was not receiving curious glances -he usually stuck out of the crowd relatively easily- such as previous days.
His stomach emitted a low growl, bringing the young man out of his thoughts. Out of the corner of his eye he caught sight of a small concession stand, presumably selling what was known as a "hotdog" to him. Luckily, the owner was facing away from the stand and appeared to be observing the decoration of a building wall. As Zel made the pass next to the stand, his hands began to work. As he brought his left hand to his right bicep, his right hand moved in the same motion to snatch up a cooked sausage and conceal it under his left arm, never breaking step. Zel made a motion to cough with the same hand and devour the deliciousness while also turning to make sure his actions had not compromised him.
Zel's strength slowly crept back into his body and began to feel warmer. As he continued to walk, block after block, he wondered how long it had been that he first stepped foot in this city. The details of his arrival were sketchy, days had blurred into each other. Days of running, hoping Pures wouldn't slit his throat in the night, and most of all isolation. Zel wasn't the social type, but there were times when he would want advice from someone, to know where to go.
Zel, lost in his thoughts once again, was soon feeling a change in the atmosphere. It felt.. dense. He noticed people scurrying towards the way he had just come, shifting their eyes behind them rather frequently. In a matter of seconds, he had more than enough evidence to decide something was amiss. Zel positioned himself on his toes to view the scene a few blocks away. He strained his eyes long enough to make out people gathered around a train. And from this train, he seemed to have missed the well-armored humans as his eyes were fixed to the objects they were carrying: weapons.

September 25, 2032
Avian cursed lightly to herself as she saw the townspeople begin to clear the roads. Casting a glance aroud the corner of the alley she was currently situated in, her amber eyes swept over the Pures standing on the train platform. They were armed to the teeth, and knew they would shoot anything that even barely looked like an Infected. Slipping back into the shadows, Avian took a deep breath. She wouldn't run until she knew all the other Infected had gotten out safely, and that included the ones who wandered. The day had just gone from bad to worse. Much worse.
Katherine stepped from the train, shooting a glance into the main road of the city of Berlin. It had been a few years since she had come here herself, but things hadn't changed. The roads cleared quickly as people moved inside their houses or shops, wanting to get out of the way if the Pures decided to unload their lead into the streets. Katherine shook her head as she turned to her soldiers.
"You have your orders.." She said "I want anything even remotely resembling one of those foul creatures dead. Do a complete sweep of the city. We will finish by nightfall."
