MocOlympics Round 1: Karkinos - Biting the Hero's Heal . . Built for the MocOlympics
About 10000 years ago, a starship landed on Earth. It was this starship which has fostered humanity and started our civilization. Using subtle, psychic signals, it has brought our race to supremacy. Why, then, do we seek now to destroy it? Because it is a parasite, feeding on the Earth, weakening it. Preparing it for the arrival of The Others. You might ask, why have we not observed it until now? It has remained hidden beneath the ocean, constantly avoiding human contact, but constantly using its powers to manipulate us. Now that it's mission is almost complete, it has come up from the ocean to signal The Others. But, it was too early! We still have the capability to fight, and we will fight! Our nations have united and sent a great army of airships to fight the monster. They may try to slow us down with drones, but we will not be stopped. We will destroy it before it can send its signal home.
Well, I'm not so happy with this build. I was really rushed, what with a tight schedule this week. Anyway, if you couldn't tell, this build represents Cancer (Karkinos is Greek). According to Greek mythology, when Hercules was battling the Hydra, Karkinos came up out of the sea and pinched Hercules's foot to slow him down. However, Hercules crushed the crab under his heal. Similarly, in my build, the drone fires missiles into the human assault force in hopes to slow it down. Also, the Age of Cancer supposedly began about 10000 years ago.
