Eirin listened patiently to the soldier’s explanation. His doubt over her previous words was amusing, but she didn’t see the need to explain herself. Of greater interest was the man’s rather wistful air with regards to this one woman that he mentioned. Not unlike an enlisted man to have an important woman in his life, though in this case Eirin could not tell if it was romantic or otherwise.
“How interesting that humans continue to seek out evolution by self-amplification through artificial means. Until such conditions are properly inheritable by offspring it really is just upgrading a single individual. Still, it bears some interest.”
The doctor sighed and simply waved her hand now. “But please do not let me interrupt you. Go ahead with the rest of your explanation if you like.”
” Of course, the augmentations of each Spartan are mean to be applied only on one subject at the time. And there’s a good reason for why we were granted with qualities that can not be inherited. Each one of the Spartan II program, including myself, were created for the sole purpose of fighting until the maximum cost, which is life itself. Our only reason for existing is to fight to the death, and so protect the human race.
That’s why sooner or later I will die here, in Gensokyo; is my destiny.after all. Now, let’s focus in the Covenant ”
then the soldier places his holographic projector on the table, projecting the image of the first race.
” There is. That is a San ‘Shyuum. The political and religious leaders of the Covenant, also called “Prophets” by the other species. They are quite intelligent, although their great ambition and selfishness frequently blinds them. In fact they are one of the 2 species who created the organization. But, unfortunately we could not capture one, so our knowledge of them is based only on visual references. “
then John makes a slight smirk
” Hmmm, so little info, and we’re talking about the leaders “
Chieko smiles a bit, seeing that he’s trying to make himself less scary for her. But the suit didn’t bother her at all. Nods her head at his introduction, she shakes his hand. Her hand felt cooled, when she shook his. Is it also part of his costume or something else? “My name is Chieko Sato. It’s nice to meet you, John.” The metal part on his hand interested her a bit. Maybe she could ask him what was it. “So John, what do you do for a living.”
” Chieko uh ? it’s a curious name and I never heard it before. But, I like it “
when the hand of the girl joins his, the soldier close it tightly, thus completing the greeting. So, the question of the girl makes the man to slightly raise an eyebrow.
” My job ? “
“ I serve in the Navy. inside the United Nations Space Command, but, actually I serve as a guard around here. That’s why I carry a gun with me, and I wear this strange, but very effective armour. What about you, Chieko ? “
