The Story So Far

            The year is 2132. World peace is no longer just a dream. After millennia of conflict among the human race, the world is finally coming together. Almost all aspects of life have been unified, such as currency, and language. However, the only aspect that isn't unified, is government. Before the world can progress in to its new stage, a unified government must be present. All forms of government have been abolished besides Democracy, and Communism.

            The populace of the world waited for a peaceful decision for which form of government would run the new world. However, no decision came quickly. Debates between political leaders were held weekly. As a decision was trying to be made, the populace grew weary of the unproductive debates and worthless opinion polls. They began to lose faith, and fell victim to the human nature of conflict.

            First, society began to take sides. Those who supported Democracy began to hate those who supported Communism, and vice versa. Just like racism during civil rights era in the United States, both sides began to violently defend themselves. Riots formed in the streets. Murders occurred in the name of their government daily. The economy began to fail without the regulation of a government. This only fueled the anger between the two sides. A year passed and political sessions became violent themselves, often times with political leaders engaging in physical fights with each other.

            It became clear that there would be no peaceful decision for the world's government, and a petition for war was written. The petition was supported by both sides of the governmental spectrum to a ratio of one hundred to one. Most citizens agreed it was the best course of action, as it kept most of the violence out of society and on the battlefield instead. The economy was stabilized once more to support the war effort as well. The war officially started on April 5th, 2133. Democracy named their army the Freedom Knights. Communism named their army the Red Legion.

            Both sides were worthy opponents of each other, and no clear victory was foreseen for either side. No ground was gained or lost, until a top secret operation was performed on four handpicked soldiers from the Freedom Knight Army. These four soldiers were chosen to be super soldiers. The operation they went through was called Integrative Boosted Stimulation Training. By the end of the medical procedures and military training set forth in IBST, the four soldiers could run farther and faster than the average human. They could survive falls and concussive forces that would break others bones and appendages. Their reflexes were supreme, and their creativity was unmatched. They were among the strongest men in the world. Their specialized military training, matched with their superior biological enhancements, made them the most lethal team in the world. They chose the name Vapor Team, and each of them chose a unique call sign to be used inside the military for their own safety.

            John Baynard Lawton was the reconnaissance master and sniper of the group. He chose the call sign Mist. His tactical prowess was phenomenal, and his hit percentage with his sniper was one hundred percent.

            Dale Avery Lawton was the perfect hybrid of stealth and power. He chose the call sign Shadow. His aim with heavy machine turrets was incredible, despite the recoil they had. He was the strongest of the group, and the most ruthless. As much as he can be loud and rambunctious during an operation, he was also skilled at staying silent and out of sight.

            Arden Julius Garcia was the pilot and close quarters expert of the group. He chose the call sign Fog. His capabilities were endless in smaller spaces and close range. He was also the best pilot throughout the entire Freedom Knight Army.

            Connor Michigan Sam was a medic pulled from the a different group of specially trained soldiers called the Designated Marksmen. He chose the call sign Smoke. His weapon of choice is the Prototype Marksmen Rifle System that was issued to him for being a member of the Designate Marksmen. His aim was exceptional, and almost as impressive as John's. He was also a massively impressive vehicle driver, and his medical expertise was invaluable.

            These four soldiers turned the tide of the war in Democracy's favor. Working as a virtually unbeatable squad, they quickly reduced the Red Legion's territories down to just their primary homesteads of Russia, China, and Vietnam. They soon found themselves nearing victory, as Vietnam was captured, and China was weakening.

            In a desperate attempt to slow the Freedom Knight's progress, the Red Legion sent special mechanically enhanced super soldiers, under the name of the Elite Blade, to eliminate war sustaining power plants, ammunition caches, and airstrips. The Elite Blade was forged in the subterranean levels of an unsuspecting hospital in the middle of Moscow, named Krietchner Hospital. The last war sustaining asset they were able to attack was a hydro-electric power plant, where they were caught in the act, and thwarted by Vapor Team.

            Vapor Team then covertly infiltrated Moscow and discovered Krietchner Hospital to be not only a sinister repurposed building to create the Elite Blade and prototype android assassins, but the Red Legion headquarters as well. As the Freedom Knight's liberated China, war plans were made to commence a final assault on Moscow.

            General Clay of the Freedom Knight army devised a way to attack Moscow. Vapor Team sabotaged the city's defenses while the main ground force attacked the city from the west. Vapor Team infiltrated the hospital and eradicated the android assassins, the Elite Blade, and Communist dictator Leonid Aptekar. With their most valuable assets crushed, and their leader killed, the Red Legion was quickly rounded up and either killed, or captured.

            Luckily, peace indeed followed the years afterward, and the Freedom Knight Army was renamed to be the Freedom Knight Police Department. Reconstruction was swift and the economy was stable yet again. For the first time in human history, the world was united and at peace. A large space station was commissioned to mark the success of humanity's new world. It was named the Roman I, and was shaped like a ring. It was also a symbol of peace and progression toward the new frontier of space. The wealthy were able to live on it if they so pleased.

            After noting Vapor Team's success in the Great Civil War, General Clay and other political leaders agreed it would be wise to increase the number of super soldiers like Vapor Team. They handpicked four more soldiers for IBST, doubling the amount of super soldiers. Vapor Team received direct orders from General Clay himself, to train the four soldiers to be just as lethal and efficient as they were. The training was to take place in secret on the Roman I space station.

            There were two men, and two women, picked to be the next four super soldiers. The women were twins, named Margaret Erika Stownin, and Victoria Mary Stownin. Brian Pewdimont Chaston, and Viktor Gregory Andrews were the men. Vapor Team landed at the beautifully scenic training facility on the Roman I and met with Command Sergeant Major Katsuo Nakahara.

            The date is now June 25th, 2140. Vapor Team eagerly waits for the rookies to arrive at the training facility so that they may begin their training...

The End
