1: Sometimes one must be sacrificed.
2: I don't believe it!
5: You came back!

9: Why do you listen to 1?
5: A group must have a leader.

1: When we awoke in this world, it was chaos. Man and machine attacked each other with fire and metal. I lead us here to sanctuary and here we waited out the war. Slowly, the world grew still until all that remained, was The Beast. Now we wait for it too to sleep.
9: But where did it come from? Why is it hunting us?
1: Questions like that are pointless.
1: You're just like 2! He was always probing, always asking questions! Useless!
9: I was right; you DID send 2 out to die!

9: I'm not sure. But this world is ours now. It's what we make of it.
