Angels of Death: Ch.9
Chapter 9: Two Steps Back
As the guardsman's transport ripped through the warp towards Iona-7, above the surface of the planet itself, something was already arriving. Due to its small size, it was able to bypass the scanning systems on the planet's surface, and soon it began to enter the planet's atmosphere.
That night, only a few guardsmen and technicians stationed at Fen-Wrath Mine saw the meteor like structure as it fell from the sky. Very few paid it any attention, and those which did soon lost interest, realising they had more important things to do that watch meteors.
Unfortunately, it wasn't a meteor.
The hunk of metal and debris, which was roughly the size of a land-raider, crashed into the vast jungle surrounding the mine. It ripped through the ground for a few meters, coming to an abrupt stop as it smashed into a tree.
Then there was an eerie silence, only broken by the smouldering from within and around the wreck. After a few seconds, the silence was broken again.
Death 4 AllThe scientists watched from the other side of their glass shields. They knew what they had made. They knew it was evil, but they didnt care. Such was the way of mankind.Death 4 All5 years ago in Biography & Memoir More Like This
-Professor Nabe Gewell-
What you are reading now are the collected and recorded surviving documents of the R-VEX experiments.
They called it Rage Virus. It was the next generation in biological weaponry, designed and tested by the late Professor Nabe Gewell at the Mercy Medical and Biological Weaponry Institute Complex.
Deployable in gas or liquid form, it would attack the nervous system, rendering the target immobile, before shifting to the glands of the human body and causing huge overdoses in the creation of adrenaline and testosterone. This would drive the victim nigh enough insane, causing them to attack anything they could find, before eventually destroying themselves.
Or, at least, that was the idea.
These are the notes of three scientists working on R-VEX:

Light creeped in though cracks in the wooden boards of the patchwork house. The air was cold, damp and heavy again, just like before. Hed felt like this before. There was a musty smell that filled every gap of this place. The inhabits were gone. The army was gone. Everyone was gone. It was their home now.
Hunter tore through the house at lightning speed. He slid down the banister and landed on all fours outside the kitchen. He ran in, gently opened a drawer and inside found the stash of painkillers he had made. Selecting a bottle of pills at random, he took it and skipped back up the stairs and back into the master-bedroom.
Sat on the bed, he came back to the sorry, helpless sight hed seen so many times before.
It looked up at him though white, watery eyes; a massive puddle of filth and decay. He was subject 19; one of them. Hed met him on the tracks a few miles back a few days ago and the two of them had stuck together since. Anything to kill the loneline
We 4 DeadThere was a cold chill in the air outside. It whispered in though the windows and filled the dark corridor. Inside, there were eight cells, each one a converted animal holding pen. The humans liked to call them enclosures. It made them feel better about what they were doing, and made it seem more humane. But nothing could possibly be humane about what had happened here.We 4 Dead5 years ago in Horror More Like This
Something was up; 04 had been restless all day. This wasnt un-common, but it wasnt his usual restless. He seemed worried. He wasnt growling, he was just pacing up and down silently. He could sense something wasnt right. From across the hall, in a glass holding cell, 12 watched 04 pace up and down on all fours.
12 wasnt used to this part of the complex. Hed always been in sector seven, and he liked it there. The humans looked after him there, but this was different, and he didnt like it here at all. He didnt really like 04 either. He was no fun, and if 12 tried
