Previously on The Cult: Alexander briefs Glen and Sara on the details of their mission.
About this creation
Dane: Where you going?
Glen: On a mission. We're going to war, Dane.
Glen: Sidus and I believe open war is the only way we can defeat the Shining Path. The Underground alone does not have the resources to fight them.
Sara: Glen, we're leaving. You'd better get ready.
Glen: Can you believe it Dane? I'll be wearing civvie clothes.
Dane: Been a long time since I've seen you in those. Good luck on your mission.
Glen: Thanks. We'll need it...
Sara: We don't have much time Glen. Come on.
Glen: I'm ready. Do we have the package?
Marc: Right here. Good luck.
Sidus: And thus, from humble beginnings, will the shot heard around the world be fired.
Cobriati. The crown jewel of Tandur, symbol of power, emblem of prosperity. Yet this same prosperity brings forth opposite evils: greed, avarice, jealousy. Evils which caused the citizens of the magnificent city to cede it to its invaders without conflict. A lust for the city's wealth...a desire to save the city from destruction...
Here in Victory Square, commemorative of glory past, will the enemy reveal itself. The beast the Shining Path awakened will now show its face to the intruders. Even now will Catron have hope.
Even from an apartment, the least of dwellings, will it arise.
Glen: All clear. No sign of infiltration.
Sara: Cover me.
Sara: Starting up...
Glen: Whoever Alexander had here left in a hurry.
Sara: Opening files...
Sara: Found their network. Starting hack...
Glen: Starting timer. Five minutes and counting.
1 minute later...
Glen: Timer is at four minutes. How's it coming?
Sara: Almost...alright, I'm in their broadcasting systems. Opening package.
Glen: Let's hear it.
Alexander: Good morning, Cobriati. Today marks a new era for this civilization, another era under the iron fist of the Shining Path.
Alexander: But there is something different about this era. Not long ago this cult was simply a group of invaders, fighting a war on our soil for their religion.
Alexander: Now they are no longer just invaders. With their treachery they have planted spies and actors within Catron, viruses in the government body itself. This body is now dead. What we now call "government" is now completely and utterly overrun by the Shining Path's workers.
Alexander: Very little remains of the United Territories and States of Catron besides its inhabitants. All land and government institutes are owned and run by the cult.
Alexander: Some who will remain unnamed have said that guerilla warfare will slowly whittle away at the Shining Path's integrity.
Alexander: But recent history has shown that little impact can be made on the invaders with such attacks.
Alexander: If this planet is truly to rise up against its captors a new strategy must be formulated.
Alexander: We must fight back with organized armies, with renewed strength, renewed vigor, renewed numbers!
Alexander: We must fight united as one! Shall we sit back and allow the Shining Path to continue their defilement and destruction of our land? Together we must stop them!
Alexander: The rebels that exist are few in number. We lack the men and arms we require. Where are you, O people of Catron? Rise up and fight!
Alexander: Fight, for war is all we have left. Fight, for it is our last option.
Alexander: Fight to repulse the invader! Fight to repulse the intruder!
Alexander: If one day the scourge overcomes us, we will be defeated in glory.
Alexander: The few who remember us will remember us as those who returned the fire of the dragon's rampage, the ones who stood and rebelled against tyranny.
Alexander: The few who remembered the freedom we enjoyed free of our oppressors. We are the few who fought for freedom, who treasured liberty over life.
Alexander: This war is not yet complete. It may seem hopeless. It may even be hopeless. But what would we become if we allowed them to overrun our land unhindered? If we gave up our individuality for fear of our lives? We would become the scorn of the world, hated by all.
Alexander: And so, Catron, let us bring the fight to them. If for a thousand years the memory of that cult remains, real or long gone, we will be remembered. Freedom fighters. Go now. Victory lies only at the conclusion of the rough and toilsome trail. And this path we shall take. Go now, and ignite the rebellion so eager to be lit.
Alexander: For Catron.
Sara: For Catron.
Sara: Package ejected. Let's go.
Glen: For Catron. For us...the people.
