- Weapon: Energo-Sword
Within Cybertron’s Underworld
Skullcruncher’s reply wasn’t particularly reassuring, but Thunderwing had suspected that the other Decepticon wouldn’t have any real details on the swarm’s survival. It was just another minor concern they would have to be on the look out for while plumbing the depths of Cybertron. When he spoke he spoke to all of the group, including sending it out on a communication frequency so Weirdwolf would receive it as well. “If you spot any of the swarm do not hesitate in attacking them. We must not let any of them escape to alert the rest.”
He returned Blackwind’s quick smile before refocusing on the trip ahead. The Decepticon grimaced as he received the signal from Weirdwolf. At least they were aware of that particular nest, thus making sure they could avoid it. Still, it was far closer then he wanted to get to any of the monstrosities lurking down here. >>”Message received Weirdwolf. We will follow you down the left tunnel.”<<
Thunderwing gripped his cyclone cannons in his hands as they approached the branch in the tunnels. As long as they moved quickly and quietly it should prove to be any sort of problem for them. He followed Skullcruncher at the lead while Darkwing and Dreadwind brought up the rear with Blackwind in the middle. The two fliers, while often depressed, were not cowards, or stupid for that matter. They walked carefully, their own guns at the ready. Dreadwind carefully walked backwards to keep his optics looking behind them while Darkwing watched the opposite direction. Say what you might about them but they made a good team.
The Decepticon was ready to relax a bit once they had gotten a ways down the tunnel when the struck. They burst out from the walls and the ground, obviously haven lain there waiting for prey to pass by. The creatures were almost skeletal in appearance, with thin limbs ending in claws on the hands and feet. They did have broad chests, topped with heads adorned with two large horns on the sides and a mouth filled with fangs, their optics a dark red color. They were large creatures, bordering on the size of a Dinobot. He could make out a bit of drool dripping out of the one standing in front of him. All in all 5 of the beasts stood around them, boxing them in.
“Hungrrrrrrry….” The one in front of him managed to rumble out.
Thunderwing did not hesitate. He fired both of his cannons at the beast, throwing him back into one of the tunnel walls. “Decepticons, take them out!” He charged at the one he had just sent flying back, hoping to pummel it to death. At the same time he opened a channel to Weirdwolf. >>“Weirdwolf, return to the group! We are under attack!”<<
At the rear of the group Darkwing and Dreadwind pelted another of the beasts with fire. The creature laughed at the fire as it seemed to only slow him down. “Hurtsssss, but hungerrrrr morrrre.”
Darkwing grimaced as he continued firing. “I’m thinking mythological beasts just moved up the list Dreadwind.”
Dreadwind merely nodded in reply as he tried to focus his fire on the creature’s knees. Darkwing’s fire was hurting it, but he knew there was only so much real damage they could do. He needed to find some way to actually stop it, preferably before it got close enough to use its claws.
