Breaching Task Force

[07:12] <Sept> Eventually, he touched down in Paris-2. "Everything quiet here?"
[07:14] <Minaplo> [There was a clunk next to him, as Asuka landed, crushing a Roman Pizza outlet beneath her heel. "Doubtful."-
[07:15] <Minaplo> [("This is Battle Command. We're intercepting E-Destroyer communications, patching you through.")-
[07:18] <Minaplo> [Another voice, this one unknown to Sera. ("All E-Destroyer units, move to intercept. Four Fallen Angels confirmed. Field command is being transferred to Red Arrow Captain Hans.")-
[07:19] <Minaplo> [Another voice, now, this one high and cold. ("4Brats, take note. EVA-01's head is claimed by me. Support, but I'm the one who takes down the head and keeps it, got it?")]
[07:26] <Sept> "If that's all they want, this'll be easy."
[07:43] <Minaplo> [Now Sera would get a good view of the enemy over the rooftops and scrapers of Paris-2; twelve E-Destroyers, split into three squads, moving towards him from the northeast, east and southeast. At their head was a sleeker, almost-identical unit, with red highlights- the Red Arrow Captain Hans.]
[07:54] <Sept> "My head is of little value to anyone," he told them. "But I'm afraid it's still quite a bit outside your reach."
[07:56] <Minaplo> ["4Ho? Wrong on both counts. Your head is exactly what I need for my trophy room!"1)]
[08:10] <Sept> "Petty aspirations. To be small and insignificant again," he sighed.
[08:28] <Minaplo> [(4"Brats, move in and begin flanking maneuvers. We stopped caring about Eva pilots when they became obselete."1)]
[08:30] <Sept> "Stay close, pick them off. I can protect you for now."
[08:32] <Minaplo> ["Got it." Said Asuka, tossing her head proudly. She levelled her two bolters, as Alexandrina levelled hers- and they began to fire, a hail of Bolter shells ripping through the air. An E-Destroyer burst into flames, careening and crashing into the ground- where it then exploded. Another had an arm and leg torn off, but it didn't slow down…]
[09:05] <Sept> "If they keep closing in, spring on them, Asuka. I'll follow up."
[09:08] <Minaplo> ["Got it."-
[09:09] <Minaplo> [The E-Destroyers began to open fire now, pulse bolts raining towards EVA-01, spraying his armour- to little effect.-
[09:09] <Minaplo> [Asuka ditched a bolter, pulling her axe from her back, revving it with clear relish. She charged into a gang of E-Destroyers, swinging it wildly, tearing off limbs and gouging chunks out of armour as she did so.]
[09:14] <Minaplo> [("This is Operations Director Hauptmann. Amatore, you're making a terrible mistake.") Hauptmann's voice was quiet, dignified- it had a firm feeling of force to it, nevertheless. ("Please, for the sake of us all, stand down.")-
[09:14] <Minaplo> [("I'm sorry, Hauptmann. You know that isn't a choice.")]
[09:28] <Sept> "Trying to buy time for their actual plan. What do they hope to accomplish?"
[09:55] <Minaplo> ["Not much, that's for sure!" Three E-Destroyers moved to dog-pile Asuka, and with a single swing she dismembered two of them and delimbed the third.-
[09:55] <Minaplo> [("Incoming fire!")]
06[10:06] * Sept , meanwhile, crushed through the midsection of one of the stragglers, the AT-enhanced shockwave hitting the ones piling on 02.
[10:15] <Minaplo> [The first E-Destroyer he hit simply crumpled inwards, practically disintegrating…-
[10:15] <Minaplo> [Whilst a rain of Positron blasts hurtled towards Asuka. ("01! Cover her!")]
06[10:17] * Sept shifted slightly to cover more of the area between Asuka and the squad of Destroyers. Slightly late, but he caught some of the fire.
[10:21] <Minaplo> [Two bolts struck Asuka, one sending her reeling slightly. "Hnngh… P-Pain… Bastard…!"-
[10:22] <Minaplo> [But Sera would soon have his own issues to deal with. A red E-Destroyer- hurtling towards him, jumping into the air and spinning down, bringing a Prog sword against him- before leaping away. As it did so, it seemed to leave an after-trail in the air, and when it landed, it was in three places at once…]
[10:27] <Sept> So obviously, he'd just have to hit all three places at once. He shifted his grip on the morningstar, and it responded, gripping his arm in return and extending. EVA-01 only needed to take a few short steps forward to cover all of that area in a wide sweep of searing heat.
[10:32] <Minaplo> [He came close.-
[10:32] <Minaplo> [But the Red Arrow Captain danced away at the last second, frustratingly elusive.-
[10:32] <Minaplo> [("High energy reaction on the ground!") ("What?!")-
[10:34] <Minaplo> [A pillar of white-blue light burst from the sky, striking a cluster of buildings. The light was actinic, blinding-
[10:34] <Minaplo> [And when the smoke cleared, a beast stood there. Tall, and white, its hands holding twin binary lances.-
[10:35] <Minaplo> [A Dysangelion, one of Mary Caine's most powerful minions.]
06[10:54] * Sept shifted uncomfortably, turning away from the Captain. "Could be more powerful than the other ones. Think of it as an Angel."
1[22:42] <@Minaplo> [("Incoming!)"-
01[22:43] <@Minaplo> [Shortly after Sera's announcement, the Dysangelion moved, leaping across half the battlefield in a single bound, bearing down on Alexandrina. Its twin bidents- each shaped with a strange helical pattern- swung towards EVA-06's head. 06 barely avoided the swing. ("Help! I need help!")-
01[22:43] <@Minaplo> ["Tch." Asuka dropped her bolter carelessly on a school, wrenching her axe from EVA-02's useless right arm. "I can deal with this, de Claw!"-
01[22:44] <@Minaplo> [She brought the axe up, ready to swing its ponderous but unstoppable weight down onto the Red Arrow. The Arrow prepared to dodge…-
01[22:44] <@Minaplo> [… When Asuka lashed out with a right leg, suddenly catching the E-Destroyer in the chest. It stumbled, and Asuka sprang forward, headbutting the machine, knocking it down solidly, sending it skidding through a supermarket.-
01[22:45] <@Minaplo> [She leapt, bringing the axe down with extra-heavy momentum and cleanly bisecting the unit. Without breaking her stride she was moving, bounding towards the river…]
[22:48] <Sept> "I can see that. Clean up while I save the princess. Well, the English one, anyway." EVA-01 bounded across a few blocks, tackling into the Dysangelion, staying close in and hoping to open up room for Alexandrina to back out.
1[01:30] <@Minaplo> [And back out she did, Alexandrina jumping away and letting her bolter do the fighting, raking the Dysangelion with mostly ineffective shells.-
01[01:30] <@Minaplo> [The Dysangelion stumbled with the tackle, but quickly rebounded, swinging a Lance around itself in a full circle, pushing 01 away, before lunging at 01's chest.]
6[01:36] * Sept deflected the attack off to the side, his counterattack with the shield bouncing off the Dys' AT field. He followed it up with the only logical solution, letting the sceptre clatter down onto the streets and getting to work on tearing at that opposing field, ripping through it quickly before drawing a prog knife.
01[01:42] <@Minaplo> [The knife slashed harmlessly against the Dysangelion's ossified head armour.-
01[01:43] <@Minaplo> [("The Destroyers are retreating! Asuka, Ni! Move to support Sera! Sera, Alex, I'm sending you battle data now!")-
01[01:45] <@Minaplo> [EVA-01 was momentarily shrouded in shadow as two giants- one white, one red- flew over, landing around the Dysangelion. Ni's positron hammer whacked against the Dysangelion's hide harmlessly- it reacted by discarding one of its lances, the now-free hand suddenly becoming distorted, claws sprouting from the finger's flesh, burning with energy.-
01[01:45] <@Minaplo> [Asuka's axe came down- it swung the claw up, ripping through the axe shaft. The progressive axe fell in pieces to the ground.-
01[01:45] <@Minaplo> [("… You… BASTARD!")]
06[01:51] * Sept only latched on with claw and knife, trying to keep Augustine in place. "No signs of anything else approaching?"
01[01:51] <@Minaplo> [("Sky's clear. We're on the home stretch!")-
01[01:54] <@Minaplo> [A slash of Sera's talon ripped open a jagged wound in the Dysangelion's side- which was compounded by Alexandrina's bolter. With Marianne's battle data, the bolt shells hit home, splitting huge gaping wounds into the Dysangelion's body and head.-
01[01:54] <@Minaplo> [It was too much for it. It grabbed EVA-02's left wing dock, and propelled itself into the air, landing clear across the river.]
[02:17] <Sept> "Don't let it gain distance, keep it surrounded!"
01[02:28] <@Minaplo> [And they pursued, hunting the Dysangelion down, pinning it in place. Ni ditched her hammer, leapt over the Dysangelion- her Eva's elbow smashed into its throat, and then she pulled back, locking her arm around the Dysangelion's head, and pulling it down into a lock. "Now!"]
06[02:34] * Sept paused for just a moment, looking down at their victim, and then followed up, driving a talon clean through the plating and in the neck, twisting it further in.
