Their story began with a scream:
Andrew Avery, a young amateur hacker and web designer, and Paris Gunn a local Beacon City rockstar, awoke to a voice in their heads. The two rise up on medical tables in a lab, iv’s in their arms, amongst hundreds of sedated people also lying on similar medical tables. The two had met months prior during experimental treatment sessions with a new drug prototype called Re.new.ssance.
The two suffered from serious medical conditions. They had each heard of the drug helping countless people with a multitude of different conditions. Soon they were both taking daily rations of the drugs. They had met in the waiting room during preliminary interviews. The two exchanged jokes and phone numbers and were soon in constant contact with one another.
About a month into their treatment, the two started to exhibit near impossible abilities.
Shortly after finishing treatment, the two were out enjoying the city and were attacked by men in masks, knocking them out, only to wake up in the lab.
The pair escaped the room and subdued a group of guards in the hallway outside. They took an elevator down, assuming they were on an upper floor of a building. They arrived at the lowest floor only to find two colossal doors. Andrew used his supersonic speed to try every possible combination on a keypad, opening the gates.
Inside were two large pods along with computers, large cables, and a multitude of electrical equipment. Andrew went to the computers and attempted to find out where they were and what had happened to them. Paris inspected the pods only to find to young women inside. Andrew found that the two women in the pods were subjects of experiments called “Minerva” and “Artemis”. The rest of the people in the labs were part of other experiments as well. Andrew and Paris released the two women.
The two women awoke slowly, asking where they were. Andrew and Paris explained and introduced themselves. The two women were Austin a young girl from the rural area surrounding Beacon City, and Qinvaela a biological researcher from an alien planet. The two joined our heroes to escape the facility, but they had to first retrieve some of Qinvaela’s equipment and help the other subjects escape as well.
The party split and was able to retrieve a cellular reconstruction device capable of turning a user to different animals the user. The other pair was able to return to the unconscious captives and free them. The group along with all the newly freed subjects escaped through the front doors of the Enterprise Pharmaceuticals facility, fighting a horde of guards waiting in the lobby.
Our heroes were able to run into the open air and escape from a police helicopter chasing them. The four split up and regrouped hours later at a park in the center of the city. They agreed to stay together, discover why they had all been taken and who was behind it, and bring those responsible to justice.
We finish with a skyline shot of the city. Siren lights can be seen throughout the streets. An explosion is seen somewhere in the city’s depths, an omen of the future of Beacon City.
