(Decided to finish last two of the IC-comic series)
Issue 19
Written by: Ferg McJinti (from manuscripts of Gloria Petrides)
Artist: Ferg McJinti
Story: Glorious day has been had on her fight against the Ascendancy cell in Whitevale. However, she was deployed to Wilderrun a week later as a guard for an expedition in that area. Within hours, she was transferred from frozen lands of Whitevale to the sweltering jungles of Wilderrun. She has to forgo her heavy armor for combat vest that provided decent defense for less padding. Nevertheless, she felt wet and hot from her current work in the jungle. The expedition consisted of three members: Professor Agrippa (Middle Aged), Intern Arthur Pius (Same age), and his sister Intern Gaia Pius (A year junior of Arthur); all of whom were working on the ruins littering the greens of the tropics. Gloria has not been much of an academic, but she is well educated enough to understand their eloquent speech and jargons. Still she had to ask a few questions if she had trouble understanding their assignments. From what she have learned from the scientists is that the ruins in the area date back approximately thousands of years ago, but built by the Osun that would seem strange to see the barbarians to have built a formerly magnificent city. Two days has passed as she escorted the team into the jungles with relatively few incidents (namely a Pumera attack and slips in wet terrain), then Gloria noticed movements as the group move further into jungle.
The group made it to an intact Osun temple with amazement to everyone except Glora, who felt that someone is following them. Then, a bolt of energy came from the brushes before it was deflected by Gloria's blade. What initially was speculated as Exiles turned out to be five-person group of half-naked women with one of them being a magic user. As the team retreated into temple, Gloria have to fend off the attackers while being bombared by energy bolts from a sorceress. It would have been better had the team know how to fight, but this point would have been moot since she was assigned to them in the first place. In addition, the women-warrior were skilled that they predicted her moves and counter strikes. Luck came when they retreated to interiors where the numbers and movements became restricted to the point where the sisters finally retreated. Gloria look on with joy of her sucess until realizing that they are now trapped with escape being blocked off by the warrior-women. Now the only option is to press on to find an exit, which they traverse into hallways of the temple. They have enough to eat for a week at best of situation along with energy for their flash lights. With Gloria being patched up after battle with the sister, she is the only protector of the group of scientists. The temple is studded with carvings of Osun warriors and carious events. Finally, they reached to the large room where they found an interesting sight: armory filled to brim with giant weapons.

Story: The group discovered room full of Osun weapons along with anvils and forges. Such a sight created fear and awe of the scientists and Lt. Gloria Petrides. They began to examine it and wonder on where the Osuns might be. Either the test of time failing to ebb the Osun craftsmanship, or having freshly made but nowhere to be seen for unknown reasons. Gloria and the scientific team had to take caution after the weapons were found out. In a surprising moment, they found themselves with an Osun wielding a giant hammer who immediately swing overhead strike towards the group. All of them made it out but plumes of dust made it impossible to see the giant warrior's movement. Then Gloria strike it the leg while the scientists threw pieces of rocks at the Osun. It was a risky distraction for scientists, but it provided a small window for Gloria to strike down the warrior. "Is anyone alright?," said Gloria. All of them replied their survival and taking a short moment of break after such encounter. They do not know how many of them are but it's best to move quickly.
Hours have passed since the team retreated into the temple after an attack by warrior women. They began to wonder why they would attack them and decided to withdraw other than losing advantage in confined hallways. She began to wonder if they were entering their territories but they would have killed them or form a hunting party instead. It could be that they were entering into into possible Osun stronghold that the warriors cannot defeat but she also realize that it would have been sealed off if it was this case. Gloria and her team began to press on but they began to hide when they hear a rumble. Then into the view of the team in a hidden place, a group of Osun warriors marching towards the other areas that open the curiosity of the team. Luckily the team were lucky to have a crevice that would fit an entire team if not comfortable place to observe the next room from. The Osun Warriors began to gather in front of their priestess, wearing a mask to cover her blinded eyes as a ritual of her ascension. They were speaking in strange language, but Professor Agrippa managed to translate few of their speech based on his previous works. What they managed to gather was their plan to create a new warriors to finally break through the blockade and attack the "Torines". Gloria give input that the Torines might have been the warrior women that the Osun were referring to. Just as she give input, the Priestess told of a tale of battle where her tribe were closed off after a conflict with Torine for years until their discovery of Augmentation lab in current times. They would plan to create cybernetic warriors with enough strength to break down the blockade. The group of Osun began to cheer in her name as volunteers were called up to be augmented.
The scientist group began to worry of the Osun's plans after the Priestess' speech. Gaia then responded that majority of augmented subject would have no intention to follow the priestess' orders and may end up attacking their tribe instead. But Professor also state that there might be possibility that the Augmented might win their war against the Priestess and still pose a threat to Wilderrun. Gloria wondered on how to defeat them since she's the single person with a blade and no explosives to destroy their facility. Then Arthur give a solution to create a small civil war just enough to dwindle both of the tribe along with plans to bring a sign of Osun priestess' death to show the "Torine" outside as a form of friendship to let them leave. It was risky but it's the closest thing if they want to escape.
Their first plan was to distract large numbers of Osun being escorted to Augmentation away to create a sizable number for a planned stalemate. The plan was done through entire team using Arthur as bait due to his speed and comparative bravery while Gloria act as taunt and defense. The plan began to show with almost half of the Osun were distracted until half an hour later when screams of struggles against the Ascended Osuns who began to turn on the tribe as soon as implants were given without any knowledge of programming to be loyal to them. The distracted group then head back to the augmentation room as the team began to withdraw. All of them were tired but it paid off. After a break, they began to move to the sound of battle and saw the Priestess personally leading her tribe in a minor civil war. It was confusing to the point where neither of the sides saw the priestess barely. In a moment, Gloria began to move through the battle to slay the priestess and bring a trophy from her corpse. She realized that she need something smaller yet noticeable for the proof as head and scalp were too large to brought out in heat of battle. She dodges the foots of warriors and even weapon swings until she got the priestess on her sight. She climbed on to the pillar and jump at the Priestess' head with a blade to her nape of her neck. Then, the priestess falls down and her mask falls off. She finally got an idea to take a small piece from the mask instead along with a lock of hair for good measure. It was fortunate that she slew the priestess and got out of the battle in heat of battle. Finally, the group got their trophies and go to the way that they came from.
They got out of the temple entrace with a trophies in Professor's hands, which allow the Torine to cease their possible attack. He even made a drawing of their struggle from his notepad, which allow him to communicate their deeds and offer to be spared. The Torines smiled and congratulated of their bravery, which they were even guided out of forest along with not to enter their lands but possibility of mercy if they show the trinket as a sign of truce. Strangely, Professor noted their language being ancient forms of Cassian language along with the jewelry of Cassian Commonwealth design.
