Baron Aldo Murdo raised his Sequence Particle Beamer in the instant that the tight knot of Nox troopers saw him standing alone in the clouds of poison gas bled out by the Khanate Venefirous Venters all over the zone. He had hoped not to use the weapon, knowing that it was in dire need of servicing and that its lethal energy could just as easily annihilate him as well as any foe. He had to choose. He would not stand and die and he could not close with the Nox before their Janus Blastguns picked him apart even in his super heavy Noblesse powered armour. Aldo brought his finger to the firing stud within the beamer and took a firing stance legs wide and set. His helm readings told him that one shot would carry away almost if not all the Nox. He pressed the stud.
The Sequence Particle Beamer hummed and then died. Its delicate mechanisms had burned out. Aldo Murdo dropped his arm and prepared to charge to meet the aliens in noble close quarters battle. He knew it was hopeless but he was a knight and even before he began to move the red armoured Nox had seen him and begun to raise their weapons. He would die before he had taken four steps but he had to make the attempt. To even end one of them would be enough now. Rage and regret filled the Baron and he roared inside his armour as he strode forward to certain death.
Just as the first Janus discharge caught him square in the chest, slagging his intricate crest work, Aldo saw friendly signals appear in his field of vision. Retained Knights were running into the fray firing as they went. Their 12.5mm Angis rounds slammed into the Nox and staggered them but they were too many and the Retained too few even with their banner bearer encouraging them to greatness. He would still die but now they would suffer and he with these fellow knights would take many of the foe to their demise. Streams of Janus fire exploded two of the Retained in red mist and staggered the Baron. His internal monitors were howling red damage.
A blinding flash of plasma fire ripped past as Aldo sank to his knees. The 44mm ball of super hot plasma impacted amid the remaining Nox and shattered them.
His helm comms auto opened a priority audio channel:
'Did you think I would leave you love of my life? Eventually this armour will be shed and once more we shall be as one. As it is for now we must carry the quest on with the aid of these brave Retained. They are to form our personal retinue'
Baroness Lillian Galaine stood behind the kneeling Baron, the barrel of her Hermit Plasma Rifle steaming red hot. Aldo laughed. He would live and the Khanate would perish.
