Recap on episode six, Zach and his friends have been assigned to a search and rescue mission to find Zulu and bring him back to sanctuary. While they are finding Zulu, they encounter the lion blood tribe led by Zulu's corrupt nephew, Balthazar. After the heroes rescue Zulu and his wife Nancy, they thought the mission they completed would keep them unnoticed, but they are about to be seriously underestimated by the lion blood tribe.
The realm is quiet throughout the night. A full moon brightens the night and the scene pans to the ground, when suddenly, a pack of lion riders race to sanctuary and attempt a capture of a certain target. Once they arrived next to sanctuary, one of the warriors says,
"It looks like sanctuary has increased its security protocol just to keep us out. We need to get out of the open and find a way in." Then the lion riders dismounted and walks to one of the many gates to the market. The warriors entered the market while opening the gate as quietly as they could. Once they entered sanctuary, the warriors quickly hid behind the shadows to avoid detection of a few USSO soldiers passing by. One of the soldiers said to the other,
"I swore I heard something. Keep your eyes peeled." Suddenly, one of the soldiers gets hit by a blowgun dart and falls to the ground, followed by the other. Afterwards, the warriors drags the soldiers into the shadows and moves on. From there they are heading to the slums. Once they arrived, one of the warriors says,
"This is the place to find that elf. Remember, we only have one chance to get this right. If we fail, our king will be very disappointed." Then the warriors check their powder bags to make sure they have a powerful chemical powder to knock out their target. Once they are ready to go, they throw a grapple claw to climb up and get inside the slums. Meanwhile, Zach and Leafa are on their beds sleeping. Leafa wakes up and says to Zach,
"Hey Zach, I'm going to get a drink of water, I'll be right back." Then Zach says,
"That's fine, take your time." Leafa stands up and walks to the kitchen to grab a glass, when suddenly, she hears a bunch of bodies landing next to her. She screamed and drops her glass which made Zach wake up and investigated what's happening. Despite being dark outside, he managed to grab his pistol and walks down to the kitchen. From there, he noticed the lion blood tribe capturing Leafa and one of the warriors has a dagger towards Leafa's neck.
"What, the lion blood tribe?," Zach was wondering,
"Why are you guys here?" Then one of the warriors said to Zach,
"Our king would like to have a new guest in our palace. We're taking this elf and make her one of us." Suddenly, Zach aims his sidearm at one of the warriors and says,
"Give me back my girl." Then the warriors laugh and says,
"No chance sunbreaker." Suddenly, one of the warriors snuck behind Zach and blows a powder to Zach. After breathing in the powder, Zach suddenly passes out and Leafa yells,
"Zach!" Then the warrior chief puts the same powder to a washcloth and covers Leafa's nose and mouth, which makes her breathe it and passes out as well. Afterwards, the chief says,
"Take her to the palace, our job here is done." Then the pack of warriors quickly escape out of sanctuary and mounted on their lions and ran back to the badlands to return to their palace.
Project Crossover episode 7: Damsel in distress.
The next morning, Zach starts waking up and hears two soldiers talking to each other. When he finally wakes up, he notices general Riley and a spartan investigating the scene.
"Oh my head," said Zach. Then Riley looks over and says,
"Zach, thank god you're okay." Then Zach leans forward and says,
"General, why are you here?" Then Riley said,
"Last night, we heard some screaming and saw this broken glass cup. What happened?" Then Zach remembers the incident and says,
"The lion blood tribe came here last night, and they took my girl." Then Riley said,
"Damn, I should've known. These guys are so lucky they pulled this off. They took out two of our troops, and now they kidnapped one of ours? We can't live like this, not while the lion blood tribe is still at large." Then Zach stood up and says to Riley,
"Something tells me we've seriously underestimated those cat loving bastards. I think it's time to attack Balthazar's palace and burn it to the ground." Then the spartan says to Zach,
"Paladin, we have no idea if Balthazar managed to kidnap other civilians. That's another factor we might take to consideration." Afterwards, Riley says to Zach,
"Jerome is right. Look Zach, I know this mission is personal, but we would like to accompany you to rescue Leafa. If that's okay with you." Zach nods his head and says,
"Very well then, even a guardian like myself requires some assistance to burn down the lion blood tribe once and for all." Then the spartan says,
"Good choice Zach." Then Riley says,
"Because of this mission involves heading into lion blood territory once more, I have assigned Zulu, Commander Jerome, and of course myself to accompany you for this mission." Then Zach smiles and says,
"Sounds good. Okay guys, let's not keep Leafa waiting, time to move out." Then Jerome says,
"Alright, let's get to work." After the conversation, Zach, Riley, and Jerome heads to the armory to pack their weapons and runs to the hospital to check on Zulu.
"Zulu," said Riley,
"We need your help. The lion blood tribe has captured Zach's girlfriend and she is in desperate need of help." Then Zulu looks at Riley and says,
"I understand why you need my help, but someone needs to keep an eye on my wife." Then a woman walks up and says to Zulu,
"Perhaps I can help with your wife's injuries." Then Zach says to the woman,
"Catharine, right on time. Listen, we are leaving sanctuary for a reason." Then Catharine says to Zach,
"I heard what happened. The lion blood tribe captured the newcomer, Leafa. I hope she's okay."
"I hope so too Catharine," said Zach. Afterwards, Zulu stands up and says to Catharine,
"Thanks for your time and patience to make sure Nancy returns in one piece." Then Catharine says,
"No problem Zulu, I hope you guys make it back home safely." After Catharine arrives to help out Nancy, Zulu mounts on his rhino, Riley and Jerome mounts on a UNSC warthog, and Zach deploys his sparrow. Once he mounts on his sparrow, Zach says,
"Alright boys, let's get my waifu back." Afterwards, the heroes raced off to return to the badlands and bring Leafa back from the clutches of Balthazar. Meanwhile, at the palace, Leafa wakes up from her sudden unconsciousness and notices her arms and legs are locked in place by chains. When she looked at her limbs as well as her body, she is covered in a dancer outfit complete with her personal colors and gold accents.
"Where am I?," she asked. Then a mysterious man walks into the chamber and says,
"Why you are inside my palace. I had no idea we would have such a gorgeous elf inside." Then Leafa notices the man and says,
"Balthazar. I should've known you would bring me to your palace eventually." Then Balthazar laughed and says,
"Did you honestly expect me to give you a tour of my home palace, you're going to be my slave as long as I live." Then Leafa said,
"A slave, for you? What are you talking about?" Then Balthazar points down which tells Leafa to look down at her large breasts. She notices a strange symbol that miraculously appeared and she was both angry and worried. Afterwards, Leafa says to Balthazar,
"You are such a pervert. What did you do to my body?" Then Balthazar said to Leafa,
"I am implementing my greatest spell yet, mind control. Your mind will eventually be under my control." Then Leafa said to Balthazar in an angry tone,
"If my limbs weren't locked in chains, I'd definitely crush you." Balthazar laughed and said,
"Do you honestly think that you can beat me? I have hunted large beasts throughout my life, and I have conquered many tribes across Africa. You, you're just a pathetic elf." Then Leafa looks at Balthazar with a nasty look and says,
"When Zach finds you, he is going to tear you apart, and you can't say anything about it." Then Balthazar smirks and says,
"We shall see." Then Balthazar snaps his fingers and Leafa's eyes glow red due to Balthazar's magic. He then summons two of his minions to release Leafa from the chains and guides her to the entertainment chamber for her dance session. Meanwhile, Zach and the other heroes arrive at the badlands and dismounted from their vehicles. Once they got to a nearby vantage point, Zach says,
"Here we are again, back at the lion blood territory." Zulu notices the palace a few miles away and says to his allies,
"This palace was constructed by my nephew, and believe it or not, this has been the last stronghold of the lion blood tribe." Then Jerome asks Zulu,
"Why would you say that Zulu?" Then Zulu says,
"Because of my tribe and Zach's USSO, we have been very successful in trying to destroy the lion blood clan and chase them out of here for good. But now, we have to deal with this palace and Balthazar to wipe out the lion blood tribe." Then Riley asked Zach,
"Okay Zach, do you have any idea where your girlfriend went?" Then ghost appears and says,
"If I'm understanding Leafa's biometrics correctly, she's inside the entertainment chamber, but these readings are going off the charts, I've never seen anything like this before."
"That's not a good sign," said Zach,
"Whatever those punks are doing to my girl, I don't appreciate it." Then Zach's suit changes light color from orange to light blue which indicates that he changed his element from fire to lightning. Then Riley says,
"I see that you're implementing arc energy now correct?" Then Zach says to Riley,
"Might as well change the pace of our battle. Besides, I haven't used arc energy for a while." Then Jerome says,
"Well, whatever it takes to win the battle, I'm up for it." Zach looks at Riley and says to him,
"I'm going to head for the palace and find my love. When I give you the signal, arm a remote charge on any part of the palace walls to make your entrance, that will be the perfect time to make some noise." Then Riley says,
"Zach, I don't think that's a good idea." Then Zach said,
"It's a risk I gotta take General. Either way, I want Leafa back." Then Riley says,
"You're a brave man Paladin, make sure you get back home in one piece." Then Zach nods his head and says to Riley,
"Make sure I have a vehicle to come home to." Afterwards, Zach salutes to Riley. Then he runs down the hill and makes his way to Balthazar's palace. He notices two guards patrolling the entrance to the palace. Zach found a small rock next to his feet and grabs it, then he throws it to a small patch of pebbles. The rock banged on some of the pebbles which caught the guardemen's attention. Once they approached the area to where the sound came from, Zach quietly approached the guardsmen, grabbed both by the back of their heads, and released a strong pulse of electricity. The sudden pulse fryed the guardsmen's brains and both fell to the ground dead. Then Zach said to himself,
"I wish this mission would be as easy as killing these two fools. But I have been through worse." Suddenly, Zach noticed a window that opened up to let some fresh air inside the palace. Then Zach had an idea and go through the window instead. But before he climbed inside, he mounts a silencer on his handgun, then he climbed through the window. Once he got inside the palace, Zach noticed a guard looking away from the window. Zach quietly said,
"Hey you," which got the guards attention and fired his pistol. After taking out his enemy, Zach grabbed the guards body and dragged it to one of the vents leading to the body disposal pit. After throwing the guard into the vent, Zach quietly snuck around the palace trying to find any sign of Leafa. Then he heard some music playing and ghost says to Zach,
"Music dead ahead." Then Zach says,
"Thanks ghost." He hid behind a wall and looked to see what is going on. He noticed a bunch of tribesmen admiring the sight of mind controlled women dancing to the music.
"What the hell have they done to these poor women?," asked Zach. Then ghost said,
"It looks like they have been mind controlled by some strange source of magic." Then Zach realized who is controlling the women.
"Balthazar," he said to himself. Then ghost said,
"No wonder why you're so worried guardian." Zach walks to a quieter spot around the palace and he says to his ghost,
"Contact Riley, tell him to set a remote charge on the wall next to the entertainment chamber, but keep him and the others on stand by until I tell him to." Then ghost nods and says,
"Affirmative guardian. I will also notify him that there's civilians inside the palace."
"Good call ghost," said Zach. While ghost is quietly informing General Riley about the situation, Zach walks up to one of the dancer rooms and hears some breathing behind one of the doors. Zach quickly looked to his left and his right to make sure no guards were coming behind him. Once the coast is clear, he peeks inside through a keyhole. After seeing what's inside the room, he says to himself,
"Found you." Then he opens the door and notices Leafa catching her breath from what she previously experienced. Zach looks at Leafa and says,
"I never thought you would look so sexy as a belly dancer." Then in a sheer state of anger, Leafa pounds her fist on the table and yells,
"For the last time, I don't look pretty to your...". Before she could finish her sentence, she noticed the man who entered the room.
"Zach?," said Leafa. Then Zach smiles and says,
"Hello beautiful." All of a sudden, Leafa takes off Zach's helmet and kisses the golden warrior. After being kissed by the elf, Zach said,
"Okay, I was not expecting that at all." Then Leafa says,
"I'm sorry Zach, I was so scared, I thought I would never see you again." Then Zach hugs Leafa and says to her,
"Trust me, I was worried too." After hugging his girlfriend, Zach looks at Leafa's boobs and asks her,
"Sorry to look at your breasts in such a bad situation, but what's with that mark on your chest?" Then Leafa said,
"Balthazar did this. He's planning on controlling women's minds and force them to become his personal slaves." Then Zach says,
"When I entered the palace, I saw some women with that same mark on their chests. I know you don't understand how this mind control thing works, but is there a way to get rid of that mark?" Then Leafa told Zach,
"The only way to destroy this mark is to kill Balthazar, without any connection to his brain, these mind seals will disappear completely." After knowing what to do, Zach nods his head and says,
"Okay good, hope you don't mind Leafs, but I have brought some company to assist me." Then Leafa asked,
"What kind of company?" Then Zach said,
"Riley, Zulu, and Commander Jerome has volunteered to help me out finding and rescuing you." Then Leafa said,
"Good call Zach, let's get out of here."
"Roger that," said Zach. After the conversation, Zach grabbed his helmet, puts it back on and escorted Leafa to a safe area around the palace, but unfortunately, the duo got caught by 8 tribesmen. One of the tribesmen said,
"Did you honestly think it would be this easy guardian?" Then Zach chuckled and said,
"Can it tribal freaks, I've dealt with much worse threats than you guys." Then the chief said,
"You are not escaping from this palace alive." Then Zach said,
"You guys realize, I usually don't work alone right?" Then the chief said,
"Where are your meddling allies guardian?" Zach smirks and says,
"Take a guess bright spark, Riley now!" All of a sudden, an explosion was heard behind the tribesmen, which happened to be the explosive that Riley deployed on the wall that led to the entertainment chamber. While the smoke clears, Zulu, Jerome, and Riley charge into action and engaged the lion blood tribe in battle. Confused by the sudden attack, the tribesmen that pinned Zach and Leafa looked at the situation which left them exposed to Zach's electric attacks. Zach grabs two tribesmen by the back of their heads and released a strong pulse of electricity which also chained to the remaining tribesmen around the golden warrior. Afterwards, Zach signals Riley to regroup with him and Leafa. Once Riley and the others ran up to Zach, he noticed Leafa wearing a dancer outfit and saw a strange symbol on her chest.
"What the hell did Balthazar do to you?," asked Riley. Then Leafa said,
"He is trying to turn me into his personal slave, alongside the rest of the women inside the palace." Then Jerome said,
"That's bad news." Then Zach said,
"Because it is. Fortunately, I know a way to get rid of these mind seals. Leafa told me that in order to get rid of these seals, we have to kill Balthazar." Then Zulu stepped up and said to Zach,
"Balthazar is a coward, but he knows how to fight. If you see him, let me know and I'll take care of him myself." Then Zach said,
"How about we both take care of him, after all, he tried to kill your wife, and now he is brainwashing women. Let's all fight the lion blood tribe until there's nothing left of them." Riley stepped up and said,
"Good idea Paladin, but before you hunt Balthazar down, I've managed to call some reinforcements, just in case." Zach nods his head and says to Riley,
"Good call General." All of a sudden, another explosion was heard above the heroes, and more USSO soldiers rappelled down and attacked the lion blood tribe from the upper levels of the palace. From there, screams and gunfire was heard from above, indicating that the lion blood tribe was poorly prepared to fight the USSO. After the brief battle, the squad of troops rushed down a few levels of the palace walkways to meet up with Riley and the others.
"This part of the palace is secured General," said the commander of the squad.
"Good work Cody," said Riley,
"Zulu, do you know were Balthazar went?" Then Zulu smirks and says,
"Balthazar is probably hiding in his quarters. And where Balthazar is hiding, his soldiers are protecting him with their lives." Zach equips his rifle and says,
"Alright, let's find Balthazar and finish his terrible scheme for good." Then the heroes started searching for Balthazar around the palace, when suddenly, the women that were mind controlled suddenly noticed Zulu and started losing their connection to Balthazar's curse. Cody's squad took notice and raised their weapons toward the civilians. Riley walked up and said,
"Stand down troopers, look at the mind seals on them." Then the squad noticed that the mind seals started to fade away.
"General, what is happening to those seals?," asked Cody.
"I think they saw Zulu and they want to see him." Then Zulu stepped up and said to Riley,
"I have a magic power that removes the mind seals from anyone that Balthazar controls. We are still going to take him out, but we better help these ladies out." Then Zach said,
"Hey Zulu, what about Leafa?" Then Zulu chuckles and says to Zach,
"Why don't you look for yourself." Then Zach looks at the sexy elf and noticed her mind seal has completely disappeared. Afterwards, Leafa giggles and says,
"You know, I'm starting to think that Zulu is a better king than his nephew." Then Zach said,
"I agree." All of a sudden, Riley's motion tracker lights up and notices a large group of archers standing on the upper levels of the palace, ready to fire a barrage of arrows at the heroes.
"Look out!," yelled Cody. Suddenly, the archers fired their bows and the arrows traveled to their target when suddenly, the arrows hits a very large purple energy shield, which happened to be a void shield that Zach deployed. Once he lowers his shield, Zach says,
"My turn," and throws his shield up toward the archers. The shield hits one of the archers with so much force, the archer disintegrated and the same thing happened to the rest of the archers. Once the archers have been cleared out, Zach grabs his rifle and says,
"Follow me everyone." Suddenly, Zach, Leafa, Riley, and the rest of the team charged into action and engaged the lion blood inside the king's chamber.
"Death to Balthazar," said one of the women.
"Long live King Zulu," said another woman. Zach encountered a lion blood tribesman who happened to have captured Leafa's sword.
"Hey leafs," said Zach,
"I found your blade." Then Leafa said,
"I have an idea, keep him busy." Then Leafa tried to sneak around Zach's opponent and when the timing was right, she tackled her enemy, grabbed her sword, and impaled her target. Afterwards, she says to Zach,
"Thanks handsome." Then Zach said,
"Hey, no problem, but we still got some hostiles to clean up." Leafa nods her head and prepares herself for combat, as well as Zach. Suddenly, another squad of soldiers came busting through the roof of the palace, rappelling down and ready to fight.
"Ready for this guys?," asked Zach. Then Carlos smiles and says,
"Let's get rocking." Afterwards, the heroes attacked the lion blood tribe with sheer force, Carlos activates his energy blades and attacked a group of tribesmen, taking them out with devastating ease.
"You never aim to disappoint me Carlos," said Zach. Then Carlos gives Zach a thumbs up and continues fighting. While this is happening, Zach and Leafa get surrounded by a bunch of armored tribesmen. The tribesmen pointed their spears forward and threatened to kill the heroes when suddenly, the armored tribesmen fell to the ground from a blur of motion. Zach and Leafa noticed Lefteris kneeling to the ground with his sword drawn. Afterwards, he looks at Zach and says,
"Did I miss the butt whoopin?" Then Zach shakes his head and says,
"Actually, we were just starting." Then Lefteris noticed Leafa in her dancer attire and says,
"Dayum Leafa, you look really nice." Then Leafa smiles and says,
"You can admire my beauty later. For now, we got some bogies to take care of." Then Lefteris nods and says,
"Got it." Then the three heroes ran back to the fight and assisted Riley who was pinned by a Warmonger. After the Warmonger was defeated, Riley stands up and continues fighting. Suddenly, Leafa noticed a group of women rebelling against the lion blood tribe and beating up the tribesmen because of the suffering they have been through. However, a group of archers ran to a vantage point in the upper levels of the palace and Leafa asked Zach,
"Can I get a lift?" Then Zach looks at the archers and says,
"Sure thing." Then Zach opens his hands and Leafa jumps on Zach's hands. Once Leafa stepped on his hands, Zach used his strength to launch her in the air and she performed a nose dive type manuvure and took out the archers. While the battle is raging on, one of Balthazar's tribesmen rushed to him and said,
"My king, the guardian is here, and he brought some serious backup. What should we do?" Then Balthazar said,
"Let the brainwashed women take care of him." Then the tribesman said,
"But my king, your uncle cured them from your spell." Suddenly, Balthazar stands up from his throne and sees the carnage that's happening in his palace.
"If you fools can't kill him, I'll do it myself," said Balthazar. Afterwards, Balthazar equips his personal armor and grabs his weapons. Once he's done with his gear, he throws open the door to his quarters and yells,
"Zach Huehn!" Then Zach looks over his shoulder and sees Balthazar running towards him with his signature throw swords. Suddenly, Zach bobs and weaves away from his attacker. Then Balthazar tried to slash at Zach, but the golden warrior grabbed Balthazar by his wrists and says to Balthazar,
"Did I ever teach you a lesson? Never mess with a guardian." Then Zach released a strong pulse of electricity to stun Balthazar long enough for the golden warrior to call out to Zulu. Suddenly, Balthazar got up to his feet and jumped in the air and kicked Zach to the ground. Afterwards, Balthazar raises his blades in the air to finish Zach when suddenly, Zulu's greatsword blocked Balthazar's attempt to kill Zach and Zulu said,
"You know Balthazar, you shouldn't have betrayed my order, otherwise this wouldn't have happened to you and your tribe." Then Balthazar said to his uncle,
"You cannot control what I do uncle, I had a choice for our future." Then Zulu yelled,
"Your future is to destroy our society, our tribe, and our people, but I will end this war. And besides nephew, you always had a bad taste for women." Then Zulu threw Balthazar away from him and prepares himself for his attacker to make his move. Balthazar runs up to attack Zulu when suddenly, he gets tackled by Zach and starts beating Balthazar up. But Balthazar kicks Zach off and prepares to kill the golden warrior, but Leafa intervenes and says to Balthazar,
"Leave my boyfriend alone you mind controlling bastard!" Then Balthazar laughs and says,
"Dear elf, you have to think twice before you start getting aggressive when I'm around." Then he snaps his fingers, but nothing happens to Leafa. Confused about what happened, Balthazar didn't notice Zach kicking him hard in the stomach and launched him to a pillar. The pillar cracked when Balthazar crashed into the pillar with his back. Eventually, he slid off the pillar and landed on the ground in pain.
"You forgot Balthazar," said Zach,
"Your uncle has a spell to keep women from being controlled by your curse." Then Balthazar slowly lifted his head and said to his uncle,
"Damn you uncle." Then Zulu said,
"You should've thought twice about betraying my order." Then Zulu lifts his sword in the air and attempts to slam it down into Balthazar, but Balthazar quickly darted away and put his blade next to Leafa's neck.
"One of you better not move or she gets it," said Balthazar. Then Zach said, "Leafs, remember what I taught you." Then Leafa nods while Balthazar is laughing.
"What did you teach this pathetic elf?," asked Balthazar in a mocking manner,
"Did she teach you how to tie your shoes?" Suddenly, Leafa slams her elbow to Balthazar's stomach and punches him in the groin. Then she knocks Balthazar down and had her chance at revenge. She draws her katana and attempts to impale Balthazar, but unfortunately, Balthazar grabs her hilt. While Leafa is trying to break Balthazar's strength, she didn't realize that Balthazar was trying to pull out a dagger from his knapsack, but Zach took notice and shot the dagger out of Balthazar's hand. Afterwards, Leafa screamed in anger and forced her blade into Balthazar's neck. From there, she leans forward and says to Balthazar,
"Never, come, back." Afterwards, she pulls her sword out of Balthazar's neck and sheathed it. After seeing their king dead, the remaining members of the lion blood tribe attempted to kill the woman responsible for killing their king. But Zach, Lefteris, and the rest of the fireteams inside the palace had their weapons drawn and were pointing to the lion blood members.
"If you want to end up like your king, step up," said Zach. The remaining survivors had no other choice but to flee the palace and mourned their losses. After the survivors left, Zach looked over his shoulder and noticed Leafa is surrounded by a mysterious glow. The glow happens to be her clothes changing from the dancer outfit, back into her battle attire.
"I thought the lion blood tribe stripped you out of your clothes and forced you to wear that dancer outfit," said Zach.
"I thought the same way Zach," said Leafa. Then Riley stepped up and said,
"It's good that you're doing pretty well Leafa. I hope that this never happens again." Then Leafa placed her hand on Riley's shoulder and says,
"Trust me General, I hope this won't happen again either." Then Zach walks up to Leafa and says,
"At least we came to the rescue for not only you Leafs, but every women enslaved in this palace." Then Leafa said,
"This plan of you attempting to rescue me was suicidal. But you are much braver than I thought." Cody walks up to Zach and asks him,
"Hey Zach, what do you want to do with this palace?" Then Zach smiled and says,
"Why don't we keep it. After all, the Umatu tribe would like to have a nice place to live." Zulu runs to Zach and hugs him tight, afterwards he says,
"I knew you would say that, thank you so much my friend." Leafa giggles and says to Zulu,
"Careful tough guy, I don't want you to crush my boyfriend." Then Zulu released Zach and says,
"Many apologies dear Leafa." After collecting his breath, Zach stood up and said,
"Why do I always forget about how tight your hugs are Zulu?" Then Zulu and the others laughed and the Umatu king said,
"You always forget about how strong I became." Then Zach said,
"Fair enough. Anyway, I hope this would be a nice place for your tribe to live in after what your nephew did to your former grounds." Then Zulu smiles and says,
"Thanks for understanding, it will look more like a palace once we clean it up of course and make it much more livable for my tribe rather than keeping it as a brainwashing club." Leafa stepped up and said,
"I don't blame you Zulu. Actually, all the women around here doesn't blame you for what we've all been through because of Balthazar." Then Riley said,
"I'm sorry to say this Zulu, but I think it's time for me and the rest of the fireteams to head back to sanctuary so we can escort these women to safety." Then Zulu chuckled and said,
"Don't worry, if you need my help, just let me know. Me, my wife Nancy, and the rest of the Umatu tribe will be in your debt." Then Zulu and Riley shake hands and while the Umatu tribe moves in to clean up the palace, the USSO flies back to Sanctuary.
An hour after returning to sanctuary, Leafa leaves her room while wearing her casual dress. Once she leaves her room, she notices Zach on the balcony staring at the traveler. She walks up to Zach and says,
"Admiring the traveler again?" Then Zach looks at Leafa and says,
"Just to calm down after what happened earlier today." Then Leafa says,
"Don't worry, I don't blame you at the slightest."
"I wish that the lion blood tribe didn't capture you," said Zach.
"It's alright Zach," said Leafa,
"You should always expect the unexpected." Zach chuckled and said,
"All of us should expect the unexpected." As he is talking to Leafa, Zach lowers his right arm off the balcony.
"I never thought that you had the guts to eliminate Balthazar after what he put you through," said Zach. Then Leafa said,
"He deserved to die after what he put me and the others through. However, vengeance always haunts everyone who crosses its path." Then Zach said,
"Don't worry, if the rest of those punks come back, we'll all be ready to face them." All of a sudden, Leafa holds Zach's right hand and Zach took notice.
"If we do face them, or any other threat," said Leafa,
"Then I'm glad to fight alongside you." Then Zach smiles and says,
"You really don't have to do this Leafs." Then Leafa giggles and says,
"Don't be silly Zach, someone's gotta watch your back in battle."
"Then I'm glad that I crossed paths with you Leafa," said Zach.
"Same here," said Leafa. Afterwards, Zach and Leafa kiss and admire the beautiful view of the city.
A few hours after the attack, the remaining survivors of the lion blood tribe are walking away from their palace, broken and angered.
"I should've known this would happen to us," said one of the tribesmen,
"We've lost our home, our king, and pretty soon, we're going to lose each other."
"Can it my loyal minion," said a Warmonger,
"We can rebuild the lion blood tribe, we always will. And once we rebuild our tribe, all of Sanctuary will suffer as we have suffered. Who's with me?" All of a sudden, the Warmonger gets killed by a large black blade. The remaining survivors pull out their weapons and forms a circle to make whoever their fighting much more easier for them. However, the mysterious figure took out all but one tribesman and the last survivor started panicking, when suddenly, the survivor gets knocked down by the mysterious figure. While the tribesman was knocked down, the figure points his sword at the survivor. He looks at the figure and says to him,
"Who are you?" Then the figure lowers his blade, flips over his hood, and simply spoke,
"They call me, the black swordsman." Then the survivor knew who the figure was.
"By the gods," said the survivor,
"Not you, anyone but you." Then the figure lifted up the survivor and said to him,
"Oh don't worry, you could have faced someone totally different. Now I want an answer for this very question, where is Zach Huehn?" After the figure asks his question, the scene cuts to black.
