Buildings were exploding, soldiers were screaming and the city was burning. Maya knew she had to do something, but the controls to her massive robotic suit weren't responding, nor had they worked for the last five minutes. The situation had been growing worse as her allies fell around her, one of them dropped as a stream of bullets seemed to rip off it’s head and the other as an energy heated sword cut him down at the knees. The monster wore a cape of purple and gold; royal colors for a monster born as one of the children of it’s emperor. It turned to see her as she began struggling to break free from the dysfunctional metal restraints.
