Nyulotha nods cordially. "Nyulotha," is all she says by way of introduction. There are some definite questions forming in her mind, but it is not an acceptable time to ask them. Too much else is already going on, and Sakura's remark about their new comrade needing medical attention is just another bullet on the list of things that need completed before she can indulge her own curiosity. Regarding being lost, she remains reticent. Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, and all. The wolf continues observing everything going on around her, focusing only a portion of her attention on the remainder of her new team. She'll have time to familiarize herself with them later, but it seems that this settlement might be out of reach, at least for a while. Once things turn once more to something she can grasp, then her attention will swing back that way.

Adric’s attention quickly shifted towards the reptile’s injured leg, rushing forward to grab Uthix and pull his arm over his own shoulders. “Uh, yeah. I think getting this one fixed up is something we should do first before we talk about setting a team up.” He’d support Uthix’s weight, taking a few tentative steps forward. Astra would simply point towards a small door at the left side of the complex, marked with a familiar symbol: two serpents surrounding a winged rod. “Thanks.” Adric nodded, now turning his attention to the two women he’d apparently been grouped up with. “We’re a team now, I guess. That probably means we should all be around for this.”

The short fennec was suitably impressed at Adric, who seemed, at least to her, to have been shaping up as a pretty good leader. She’d shrug to herself, turning back around towards the massive holotable she’d been standing beside to continue working. “Find Solomon when you’re done. He’s a big, scary boar in grey armor.”

The medical bay was expansive, roughly half of the main chamber’s size. Red jumpsuit-clad medical staff walked between cots lining the walls while small drones floated close behind to carry medical supplies and tools to the med-bay’s many patients. It seemed, from the number of brightly-clad adventurers sitting around in the room, the Reclaimers had taken a considerable hit. Adric shifted in place, tossing Uthix’s arm further up his shoulder to support the reptile better while he ushered him towards one of the medical staff, handing his new teammate off, much to the medic’s dismay. “You do realize we don’t have any more space to keep wounded. Whatever you Reclaimers are doing, you ought to do better.”

The only reply the hare would have would be a short, awkward nod.

(I hate to be the person who holds this up, I highly, highly, highly, apologize for the wait.)

Uthix wasn't in any condition to put up a struggle as the hare took his arm and lifted his weight off his foot. Unfortunately, it didn't make him feel any better about his shattered foot, the reptile in fact only felt more embarrassed and lost. With the weight lifted off his foot, he slightly lifted it, moving it slightly to be greeted by a sharp, but dull pain in his foot. Uthix was quite confused, It was as if he'd never met any of these 'reclaimers' and they were already taking him in and claiming him as one of them. "-U-Uthix... I-I sorta just woke up this way.-" He states, stopping to glance at his injured foot for a moment before he turned his gaze back to Sakura, continuing, "And I w-wouldn't... be here, i-if Fen hadn't r-rescued me."

Staring, Uthix listen'd to the small fennec as she directed them towards what looked to be the medical bay before directing them to a 'Solomon', who was apparently a scary 'boar'. The reptile didn't seem too thrilled, but allowed himself to be helped towards the medical bay by Adric who had been the only one to let his broken foot rest.

Pushing past the doors into the medical bay was a interesting sight, Uthix was far from the only injured as far as he could see. It was packed in here, injured creatures laying in the various cots, being attended to medical personnel in uniform. With a tug of his arm, Uthix snapped back to reality, walking forward with Adric's help and locking his sights on one of the more busy looking staff who didn't seem too excited to meet another injured 'reclaimer'. "I-I... U-Uhhh. S-Sorry?... We're...- I'm new h-here, I w-wasn't aware." The reptile starts, shaking his head a bit as he stutters his words, only making the situation more awkward than it started, "I've got a s-shattered foot, b-but I woke up this way." Uthix finished with a clear sigh.

The painkillers would have worn off mostly and Uthix could feel the dull pain in his foot, it felt extremely uncomfortable.

Sakura was a bit appalled that someone who was supposed to be a medical professional would talk in such a way. She took a step forward, relying on her imposing size, and muscular frame to hopefully add a bit of intimidation factor. "Hey now, give the guy a break." She spoke up. "He's only just awoken and been rescued from the field. He needs a bit of care, and you can give him back to us if you don't have the room. Patching up a broken foot shouldn't need convalescence in the infirmary anyway." She finished. As she spoke, she'd balled her fists and tensed up a bit with her outrage at the flippancy she perceived from the medical personnel that had addressed them.

As the medical personnel took Uthix to work on his foot, she stalked back to the rest of her new teammates. "I hope that's not the normal attitude." She commented as she leaned against a nearby empty bit of wall to watch. She folded her arms across her chest and watched how the medical staff treated Uthix while she continued to speak to Adric and Nyulotha. "Have either of you been able to remember anything that happened before waking up to this mess?" She asked them quietly. She was still feeling a little distressed about the fact that she couldn't consciously remember anything before waking up buried in a pile of rubble in a tunnel in the ruins of some ancient city.

Nyulotha seems flatly unperturbed by the medical personnel's behavior. In fact, when Sakura starts to bull up to the medic, the wolf rolls her eyes and snorts softly. "The first rule of front line medicine is triage. Priority goes to the most severe. A broken foot shouldn't take a space from a potentially fatal injury," she says to whomever might be listening to her. "Furthermore it does no good to protest it, because from the looks of things everyone is understaffed and short on supplies. Possibly to do with whatever massive undertaking we are being sent on," she muses aloud idly. "Even further, it is unwise to start off on antagonistic terms with those who might one day be called on to stitch your spleen back in place. This is all opinion, mind, so pay no heed to it if you like." She closes her eyes and shrugs, hands rising nonchalantly to shoulder height.

Once Sakura approaches with the question about before, Nyulotha becomes reticent. Her expression drops to an unreadable neutral from her previous wry humor. It seems that she has no intention of answering, until she has some idea what import the question has to the others. She'd rather gather information first than volunteer it.

Adric gave Uthix a concerned look once he was led away, though still within earshot of the group: all of the cots were occupied with Reclaimers who were in far worse condition. The reptile would instead be seated on a nearby crate while the medic produced a large, orange case to begin working on patching his foot up. He’d apply a translucent teal gel with some kind of gun-shaped applicator, spreading it around with their gloved hand. The gel felt cold at first, though quickly it begun to heat up as it dried into a kind of brace. It would let the reptile move freely, though he’d lose considerable feeling in his foot, leaving it numb. A quick, desperate fix. “This won’t hold in intense fighting, so be careful.” They’d say, packing the applicator back into the orange case, which would soon find its place on a wall-mount.

The hare, his concern now satisfied, turned his attention towards Sakura and Nyulotha as the former begun to ask a very interesting question.

“Waking… up?” Adric asked. For a moment, the memory of a field of golden millet surfaced from the depths of his mind. He’d begin to feel a dull pain in his eyes for just a moment.
The knife had a million terrible blades.

You were powerful once, and wise. Of fire and brimstone and wisdom. But the knife tore you apart. An insignificant shell of what remains. You are a stone in the river, small and simple.

There is one thing yet that remains. A black tower resides in the deepest corner of your memory, but how much of it, this sliver, can you trust?

Up. You must go up. A secret giant awaits you at the end.

He’d clutch his face for a moment, letting out a low groan. Were those his thoughts? He’d shake his head. “No, I… don’t remember anything after waking up.” Adric said. “From what I can tell, I’m some sort of pilot.”

Uthix was fix-ated on the other injured Reclaimers, as the medic lead him onwards. If he had not been so lucky in his first encounter, would he simply of been another casualty in the room packed full of them? It was an uncomfortable thought and the reptile quickly shook the thought out of his mind, wordlessly sitting down as he was brought to the crate. Naturally, he lifted his injured foot as the medic started their work.

His gaze fell back to the rest of his 'group', watching as they talked, despite not being able to hear them. 'Why had he waken up to this?... Without memories no-less. It felt like a huge miss-understanding to Uthix, not destiny or fate.' His focus quickly shifted back to the medic as he turned his head, snapping out of his trance like state. The reptile wiggled his toes, setting down his foot as the medic finished - an odd numbing sensation replacing the dull pain he'd felt before. "A-Ahh... Thanks. I a-appreciate it." Uthix replied, nodding his head in thanks, before pushing himself off the crate - shifting his weight back onto his feet.

The reptile took a moment to re-gain his balance, starting towards his group as soon as he got the chance. He didn't want to get left behind, not when he already felt completely lost. Stopping next to the others in his group, it seemed he had missed most of the conversation in his absence.

Sakura frowned slightly at Nyulotha as it seemed the wolf felt the need to lecture. "I'm familiar with triage. I wouldn't call this the front lines, and the medic said the issue was with space, not more severe injuries and a lack of personnel to tend to lesser injuries at the time." She retorted. "with that in mind, the quicker they patch him up, the quicker he's no longer taking up space in the infirmary."

Of course, it seemed that the question of memories dried up the little trickle of conversation that they'd gotten out of the wolf. Luckily Adric jumped in to fill the gap. "Well, it felt like I was dreaming, then I opened my eyes under a pile of rubble in a collapsed tunnel." She replied with a shrug that said there was no other way she could, or was willing to, explain it. She watched Adric clutch at his face with a bit of concern. "you okay? Sure you don't need to go in there too?" She asked, gesturing toward the infirmary. She sighed when Adric confirmed that he didn't remember anything. She turned her attention to Nyulotha. "What about you?" She asked the wolf just before Uthix returned.

"Hey, you look like you're doing at least a little better." She commented as he approached. "What's your memory situation like?" She asked him. "Any longer than a day or two?"

"Then by all means, disregard what I said entirely," Nyulotha says with another of those unfathomably nonchalant shrugs. "It was opinion after all," she says with the faintest of smirks flickering into being for all of a split second. "Regardless, we've done what we came here to do, so we should move onto other pressing matters, like meeting our contact to receive our assignment. The sooner we've begun, the sooner we can see about settling in and answering all these questions of yours." She pats the shotgun stuffed through the bandolier over her 'new' armor. "Action is called for in the moment, and idle speculation gets us nowhere. We are expected somewhere, and it would not do to disappoint our hosts by being less than punctual."

As Uthix approaches, Nyulotha straightens up a little. "I vote that we move to our meeting posthaste," she says with a glance around at her new associates. "As far as I gathered, they are waiting on us. For whatever reason, we are considered essential by someone somewhere. Furthermore, establishing ourselves here will hopefully afford us the time necessary to unravel the mysteries plaguing us." This is the first she's hinted that she may share the same mystery as the others, at least out loud, however guarded an admission it is. "Beyond that, doing so may provide us access to greater information we might not otherwise have and to contacts we may not otherwise meet." The wolf pauses to take a slow breath. "Again, however, this is my opinion and you are free to disregard it as you please."

“That’s fair.” Adric replied simply. He’d take a good look at what was apparently his new team. Most of them seemed capable fighters, but he worried for Uthix. He was injured. Would that slow them down? “I just want to know what they need us for, but judging from just how many people here are injured, I’d think they’re getting desperate for something. Top priority would be to figure out just what that is.”

Without much fanfare, he’d turn around to head back towards the Nest’s main command center, where a relatively large crowd had begun to gather around the holotable they had seen previously. “As you know,” a booming, yet stoically calm voice spoke out over the low din, causing the entire room to fall silent. It seemed they’d walked right into a briefing.

“Our recent offensive against the Nereid Hive ended in failure.” It was Solomon, a tall, quite imposing-looking boar whose impressively statuesque features were paired with a set of bright white armor. A golden yellow shoulder cape covered one of his arms, though it seemed to poke out while he gestured to the crowd around him. “As a result, we’ve suffered a severe loss in resources over the past few months. This does not mean we’re changing our strategy, however.”

The holotable illuminated once more, revealing a large map of the area around Zhedrin’s Hold. “CTATODL is still in effect. We will continue to make adjustments to the frontline where necessary and fight the Nereid on our own terms. You’ve all heard of the upcoming counteroffensive on the hive. While I’m sure all of us would happily assault their base of operations, our distinct lack of manpower and firepower would only create more problems for us.” Solomon said.

Several red circles begun to appear over the map, labeled with various strike team names. “We will continue with patrols in the meantime, and I expect you all to plan and execute small-scale objectives to bring us back into fighting shape.”

More of the same, it seemed, for the crowd, as they begun to disperse. Everyone knew the program. As the room’s population begun to decrease, however, Solomon would notice the group of newcomers. “And finally, you four.” He’d beckon them over, taking a good long look at them once they’d gotten close enough. “Are you the new team Astra had assembled?”

“Yes, sir.” Adric nodded. “My name is Adric… Wyman.” He’d gesture towards the three others behind him, allowing them to introduce themselves to who was presumably their new leader. “And you’re Solomon, right?”

“Commander Solomon.” He’d correct the hare, turning back towards the holotable, which begun to pan South, towards a large city. “Well met, regardless. I’m sorry I have to put you four to work so quickly after your arrival, but we need all the hands we can get.” Solomon paused for a moment. “We’ve recently lost contact with a forward operating base we’d set up in the Edwinish Frontier Zone, most likely it’s just a power outage, given our lack of resources, that, or their comms are down, but we received one last transmission from them.” The holotable begun to play the transmission, which was made up of shouting and heavy gunfire. “I need you to re-establish contact, and figure out what the situation is there. Worse comes to worst, we need to have you on-hand to rescue them. Understood?”

He’d hand them each a small wristband, which seemed to have a projector of some sort attached to the wrist. “Call it ‘initiation.’ “

As the finned reptile re-grouped with the others, he stopped to flex his foot with a curious gaze. Slowly lifting his head back up, he watched Sakura as she questioned him. In short reply, Uthix shook his head. Pressing his paw against his muzzle, as to hold it up, he stated - "N-Not really... I-It's all kind of, H-Hmm... Blurry.". Looking down, he lifted his foot before placing it back down. It was completely numb, so much that walking was even a bit awkward, almost as if his foot had 'fallen asleep' and refused to 'wake up'. "I-It's not as if I just got here..." Uthix states lowly, barely loud enough to hear, not excited in the slightest with the idea of monsters still in his mind.

Following behind the three as Sakura, Nyulotha, and Adric made their way out of the medical bay and to the command center, Uthix kept up with the group, breaking his gaze for only moments at a time to ensure he isn't left behind. Right behind the three, the reptile made his way in, joining the rest of his group. Silence filled the room quickly as a loud voice echo'd throughout the room, the fins on the side of his head pressed flat as he heard the loud voice. Uthix quickly spotted the tall boar from the crowd centered around an electronic table of some sort, from what the fennec had said, he came to the assumption that this was 'most-likely' the 'Solomon' they had referred to.

Before long the meeting had come to an end and the crowd quickly dispersed out of the room, leaving the lone boar who gestured to them. Uthix momentarily felt a sinking feeling in his chest. He wasn't sure he was ready after what he had experienced not longer than an hour ago. Regardless, Uthix followed behind Adric with the rest of his team. Stopping at the edge of the table, the reptile rested his claws gently against the edge of the table, staring at the only slightly familiar map of Zhedrin’s Hold. Raising his head, he spoke after a short pause from Adric, "I-I'm U-Uthix... Uthix-Raj.".

Uthix focused on the holomap as it shifted downwards, moving towards a large city. In all honesty, he couldn't be any less excited to be thrown back out into the danger, but he felt a lot more reluctant to pull any smart comments in front of their supposed commander. After the recording finished, Uthix accepted the wristband that Solomon handed each of them, examining his before putting it on. "Initiation..." Uthix thought to himself, "...If we make it back alive, that is."

Sakura rolled her eyes at Nyulotha, but didn't actually say anything as the wolf again deflected any conversation that approached being personal. She did however follow along as the group set out in search of Solomon, and hopefully some more information.

She was curious what Uthix had meant when he said he hadn't just arrived, though the scene of him being dropped off suggested otherwise. She didn't question him further on it for the moment though, she figured now that they were moving with a purpose it could wait till later.

She tried to listen as carefully as she could once they entered the command center in what seemed to be the middle of another brief. She still wasn't sure what was going on beyond the fact that there was some sort of conflict with these Nereid, and it was not going well for the reclaimers of the nest. What she did know though was that the prospect of a fight didn't bother her. To the contrary, she found herself starting to feel some excitement.

She watched as the map was populated with circles labeled with team names, and found herself trying to remember if they'd been given a team name yet. That thought was pushed away though as Solomon waved them over. "Sakura, Sir." She said with a grin in introduction when Adric gestured. She nodded when the boar stated that they would be going straight to work, again feeling a bit of anticipatory excitement. She took the offered wristband, and put it on.

"Well, it's something to do that will hopefully help the efforts." She commented before tilting her head a bit and asking a question. "What kind of transportation is available to get us there?" She the answer wasn't going to be their own feet, but prepared herself for it.
