APEX: Don’t Go Looking for Trouble


Comrads. Friends. Brothers in Arms. Kandros here.

Our time in Heleus has been intense and filled with conflict both internal and external, expected and unexpected.

First, let me say: As some of you know, when I joined the Initiative and left for Andromeda, I never intended to lead a military life. However, the life that I’ve created here in Heleus, this life as Director of the Militia is more challenging and rewarding than anything I could have imagined. And it’s because of all of you and your dedication and expertise. I’m lucky to lead a group of soldiers like you. Sure, you’re a rag-tag militia called into duty when you’d probably rather be settling Andromeda–but no commander of a dedicated army could ask for better.

Now, the mission… the kett. Those assholes. I’m sorry to say that I have to send you out to take on those soulless, ugly, bone-faced, motherless, ignorant bastards once more. In all my life, I’ve never encountered an enemy more dispicable than the kett and their genocide disguised as reproduction.

Firebase Aqua, recently recaptured from the Roekaar has been taken by the kett. Hideous grey cowards. Walking filth. We need you to get in there and do as much damage as you can—sabotage, take down their numbers, mess their shit up.

You can do it. Have fun. Show those stupid, pompous bastards what good ol’ evolution can do. Show them that integrity and decency is powerful and that it can kick ass.

It’s an honor to serve with you. Kandros out.
