"Bastards have gotten their light machineguns set up, but they've penned themselves in on the riverbank. If we keep them pinned down, they'll run outta water soon and the sun will do them in"
"Great. So we just sit tight and shoot any Shurd heads that we see"
"Yeah, you seem to be the sniper type.....hang on..... you sound familiar"
"Do I know you under that hood? You sound like that milita girl doing dances at the beach in Huijta.....Safuja?"
"Huh, fancy that. Here was me thinking wouldn't meet again after that"
"So did I"
A Mabuting Marine, Corporal Fisk, is reunited with a female Milita member who he met a couple of months prior. During the Mabuting Uprising, large forces of civilian milita members worked with Marine Divisions to surround and attack the previously allied forces of Shirudo.
Pictured during the battle of Maraket, an old town and outpost that was commandeered by Shurido Logistical forces to act as a supply depot. Outlying patrons were surrounded in the blazing heat and rocky terrain of Northen Mabuting, while technologically superior Shurido focused on trying to fortify Maraket itself. There they were able to put up a punishing defence, inflicting large amounts of Mabuting casualties with their superior weaponry, before the town eventually fell.
Corporal Fisk would die three days later from a Shurido APC during an assault on the town. Milita member Safiya survived the battle, and would return to her job clam trawling once the Shurds withdrew. Her daughter was born seven months after their encounter on the battlefield.
The Great War era Marine carries a lot less webbing and equipment than his post war counterpart, though retains the classic beret. He carries a Karl Enneswick Rifle, with a modification kit that enables it to resemble the fully automatic KE Mod 1 rifle. Used as an assault rifle by Karelia, the Marines utilised it instead as a light support weapon to cover their infantry assaults.
The Milita member wears a simple pair of overalls, combined with a homemade camouflage cloak and hood. Milita members were urged to fight a gurellia war across the island territories and many fabricated their own camouflage to blend in. She carries the standard Kar Enneswick Bolt Action rifle.
