Previously on War Within: Trado witnesses the enslavement of a local by the Path and is caught in the midst of a battle.
About this creation
Trado: I cannot believe my eyes.
Trado: The whole of them, all slaughtered. I am a soldier of the Shining Path, but this...
Cultist: Stay down, heretic.
Trado: Why? What could cause them to abandon reason so recklessly?
Trado: I will never throw myself against the fortresses of the Path like this. If ever I share the path of the Astray, I will not allow myself to do such things. But neither will I allow myself to repel the Astray with such cruelty.
Trado: Salve, Seneca.
Seneca: Salve, Trado.
Seneca: Them, those...they thought like you once, Trado.
Trado: Quid? What, Seneca?
Seneca: Some faces, faces I knew, upon that field I cannot bring myself to look at. Amici. Friends. Et Cassius, et Casca. Omnes necati.
Seneca: Ei viam ambulant. Do not follow them, Trado. Their path is death.
Trado: Quid hanc viam facere possum? There is nothing for me here. You know that.
Suddenly the tower shook as a short, muffled explosion rocked the base.
Trado: What was that?
Trado: Seneca! Seneca, are you alright?
Seneca: I am fine.
Seneca: I...am fine.
Trado: I'm going to see what happened.
Seneca: Beware...them, Trado! Their path is Death!
Trado: Seneca...he taught me never to "bottle up" emotions within myself. But who is there to tell? Who can know the storm raging within my troubled soul?
A man rounded the corner, clearly in a hurry.
Trado: What was that explosion?
The man paused.
David: My name is David. You don't know me but I know you. All is not well, Trado. Watch yourself.
David: Find me when you wake up.
David knocked Trado unconscious with the barrel of his rifle, and then resumed his running.
