Shilla, Drik, and Shriq followed
Atan and Alexei followed
Catina turned and ran as well.
Grace and Sky followed
"It may be a longshot, and possibly downright dangerous. But do youn think it would be possible to repair, possibly upgrade Mjolnir Armor with whatever they used to turn themselves into cyborgs?" Catina asked Grace over the coms.
"I'd need a lot of time to do that... Sky's armor has been practically mutilated as is." Grace said as she helped her along.
"Something to look forward too, and a reason to survive being stuck on this planet of Elite-metal bucket hybrids.
Arkata looked back to see the others running and behind them, the mass of sangheili. They howled in pain and anger as the they crawled over each other there misshapened bodies moving as quick as they could.
Sky shot at them, but there were so many she couldn't miss. "Grace... You have to let me go..." Sky said.
