The Cytherian Annexation
XV8 Crisis suit (Fire knife configuration)
Young Shas’el Ka’relan has been tasked with rooting out the last resistance in the dense jungle areas while Shas’o Alo’rra, commander of the Tau expeditionary force, is busy overseeing the first stages of colonisation.
Ka’relan is young and needs to prove great success if he is to become promoted to commander one day. His commander, Shas’o Alo’rra, has impressed upon him that the resistance needs to be dealt with as quickly as possible so that the planet can be made ready for complete assimilation.
Eager to prove himself Ka’relan has jumped the gun and has brought his hunter cadre into rebel territory before he could reinforce his pathfinder teams.
