For roughly the past two-thousand years Twelve has hibernated under what has now become Nil. Originally sent to assault a long forgotten city, Twelve’s attack pod was thrown off course by an intercepting missile. The pod plummeted to the earth. Nearby explosions caused rocks to rain down on the unit. Escape became impossible. Over the years the pod became more and more encased in earth.
The warehouse explosion caused a collapse of an old abandoned quarry tunnel. The tunnel happened to be right below Twelve’s location. Awakened and able to move for the first time since before the Rapture, Twelve steps into Nil confused and suspicious. This town is not the city he was sent to destroy.
