Tara Musser, the younger sister of Alice Torrell, in under quarantine due to being infected by some unknown agent. She has been in the hospital for over 6 months, going through excessive tests, blood work, screens and so on. Alice, every day at the hospital working so hard to find a cure decided to take this into her own hands.
Knowing the war between COG’s and Locusts are still going on throughout the outskirts of the city, she travels in the edge of the war zone and takes a wounded Lambent hostage. She brings the wounded Lambent back to the hospital and hides it in the basement only keeping it alive through IV’s and transfusions. She performs a multitude of tests to confirm that her thought was going to cure her little sister. That thought was the fluid from the Lambents’ thyroid contains an active ingredient called malsilitcyde, an antibody that regenerates spawn antigens.
She heads back up to the room where her little sister is laying in the bed looking at the window, as Alice starts to put the needle with the lambent fluid in her IV, a group of Boomers bombs has hit the hospital. The Locust has breached the secured outpost and reached the city. Sections of the hospital are destroyed and parts have crumbled into ruins, as well as several lives lost and many people wounded.
After hours of battle that drew into the night, the COG’s have gain back control of the city, Marcus, and Baird start to examine around the demolished hospital looking for any survivors. He hears some rumbling around the corner and there he finds Tara holding Alice. Alice wounded because of the blast seems to be fine, but still in serious condition. Tara looks up at the men and shakes her head, knowing that Alice does not know how badly wounded she is. Marcus and Baird take the sisters back to the central command base to be examined and brought back to a healthier state.
Weeks later, Alice wakes up to find her sister beside her. Tara explained to Alice that she had lost some of her sight in both eyes and her left forearm and hand had been amputated. With special doctors and special equipment, she was able to see with special optic goggles and have capabilities with her left arm using a mechanical arm. Alice really did not care about any of what she personally went through, the more important issue was to know how her sister was feeling. She asks how Tara was feeling, and she said that she felt brand new and that she was not in any pain and felt vibrant. Alice smiles in relief, knowing that she is fine and maybe by some faithful chance some of the the Lambent juice was injected into her but Alice knew that she had to keep the details of her experiment from Tara and anyone else. She did not know what would happen if anyone knew and how much of, if any, change Tara would go through. She had to keep her safe and protected, always.
Tara explained to Alice that she had joined the COG and wanted her to be by her side. Alice did not hesitate. There is no more time for any sister bonding or healing; it was time to be recruited as a COG and fight against the Locust, Tara took Alice to be geared up.
The sisters looked at each other and hugged.. As they grabbed their lancer from the weapon locker, they both walked outside to meet Marcus. When they walked outside, they banged their fist together, fingers spread out, and said, “Sisters to the end”………………..
