Kajura Torok (chloechisu) poses inside a hangar that is hers to decorate.
In a theater or combat that never ends, SSR soldiers and pilots in Undine have settled in, even bringing in exotic pets and a personal touch to their base on the North Shore. One such soldier is Kajura Torok (chloechisu), a ranking officer in the SSR and the recipient of multiple medals for her excellence on the battlefield.
Known by NATO forces as the “Red Tiger,” Kajira has made a home for herself on the SSR base, using the motor pool for a lounge and kennel for her large pets.
SSR commanders have turned a blind eye to such “individualistic indulgences” in exchange for continuing service from highly trained troops.
Fire crews responded to a major fire in the Anthony Distribution Center in Danger Point yesterday, attacking the 20 foot flames with several fire engines. “There were fire hoses everywhere,” said Mayor Jayce Anthony, who visited the site.
The fire was put out after a long hour, with acting Fire Battalion Chief KaiLantern leading the operation. “The doorways were on fire too, blocking our access to the source of the fire. Once we got in it wasn’t hard to put it out.”
Jessica “Conwing” MacDougal (Tesserra) checks engine readiness while on standby at Honah Lee Airfield.
She may be based out of Grenadier Field, but Jessica “Conwing” MacDougal (Tesserra) runs through her search and rescue (SAR) procedures at Honah as though she’s been there her whole life.
As part of the Phoenix Medical team she’s well aware of the need for search and rescue in the Blake Sea. “You would be surprised how many boaters get stuck in bad situations,” she told us over the roar of engine one.
The head of Pheonix Medical Tatyana (Taras.Kaliopov) was away on a call, but the stories from rescue crews in the area are legend. Pilots tell of sharks attacking plane pontoons on rescues and being fired at by mysterious submarines.
“We’re on call through thick and thin,” MacDougal tells us, “and we’re always at the ready.”
In a new series of human interest stories, Waterbank News brings you Danger Point Stories, another look at the people that make up the city.
In the club under the overpass, the hot spot known as Club Di (Dionysis) gets a lot of customers, and Username03, exotic dancer and DP resident, sees enough to know something about people and what gets them interested.
When we met Username03 they were dancing near the entrance, luring in lookyloos and a few regulars. “Gotta bring’em in,” said the Floor Manager, “and Username’s got the moves for that.”
Part of what makes Username’s story different from others is how muscular they are, and how the tips that come from dancing often pay for a detailed fitness regimen in the Community Center. If you ask Username, they’ll shrug. “I just have an inner power,” they’ll grin.
The corpse was found one floor below Wei’s apartment.
Deputy Chief of Police Debbie Wei was named as a suspect for a murder investigation today when a body was discovered underneath her apartment.
The victim was a thirty year old member of the Bad Street MCs who had a reputation for trouble with the DPPD. Witnesses claim that they saw Wei arguing with the man only two days before as he acted belligerently to a city clerk.
The body, burned and contorted was discovered by a building supervisor testing fire alarms. “the Mutual Trust Building is very secure,” he told us, “I can’t imagine how they got in.”
Mayor Jayce Anthony, concerned that Danger Point Police might be criticized for ignoring one of their own, ordered the DPPD to pursue the case with due diligence. A spokesperson for the police talked to the press later in the day.
In deference to her station, there were no flashing lights or sirens when emergency vehicles responded.
“Few people have access to that floor, and all of them are suspects,” said the DPPD spokesperson. “We are waiting for lab results and CSI, but there were no signs of forced entry, so we are taking a close look at our suspects.”
Asked if Wei would be suspended until cleared, the spokesperson said “that has not been determined yet.”
The dapper Empty Neutron stands outside his Prototype store.
A Waterbank News photographer, browsing the NTBI Mall in Prototype, couldn’t help but peer over the heads to see what the fuss was. “I thought maybe Lusch Motors had the new Eurotruck – I was really surprised to see the President of KYOTO.”
The President of KYOTO, Empty Neutron, is more than President of KYOTO, he also is an emergency services consultant for the City of East Lansing (SL). “There’s always more to learn about ES (Emergency Services), and especially EMS” said a humble Neutron.
KYOTO is one of the preferred vendors for Waterbank, who have long used their roadway products.
“Believe it or not, their signs have saved my life,” laughed Sketch Sun, “if they hadn’t been so solid and well built, I would have accelerated off the cliff at 5 Grace Canal who knows how many times.”
The photographer shouldn’t have been so surprised, said a janitor at the NTBI Mall. “He is a busy guy, but actually comes to check on things often. You’d be surprised to see how many of them,” he jerked a thumb at the shoppers, “leave soda cans on the products.”
