The world is now gripped in a desolate cyberpunk dystopia with Japanese Zaibutsu corporations Controlling most of the globe.
Earl Cartwright readied himself, the intruder was moving rapidly in his direction through the labyrinthine corridors of the 62nd floor of the Sentou Kiun Zaibutsu’s Los Angeles tower.
The bulk of the corporations duty security forces were Shepparding their raider toward the fortified West wing and its drone guardians, Earl a second class American prepared by instructing the anthropoid guard drones to cover the corridor.
The silence of the tower was always eerie, its mirror polished surfaces literally so free of static that a pin could be heard to drop, a sterile vacuous space.
That frozen quiet was suddenly shattered as the intruder sprinted around the corridor, Earl’s eyes widened in horror, the figure ran not upon the floor but along the walls and even across the ceiling and down onto the opposite wall.
“St st st STOP Hi him” blurted Earl, he felt an uncomfortable warmth feeling spread across his groin, if it weren’t for his abject fear for his life he’d take that as a significant blow to his pride.
The drones sped forward, barrelling him out of the way, their imperative being the Japanese masters of the tower, the figure didn’t falter once again sprinting from the floor across the wall, as he did so he drew two large pistols.
The guns emitted little noise a small clicking sound, followed by a slight whistle accompanying a succession of rounds tearing through the drones, Earl stared in shock as the automatons shuddered and collapsed, there was no way that a few bullets should have stopped them.

However the Japanaese corporations security had responded a little faster then anticipated and it wasn’t his style to fight an army, in and out that was the true way.
He rounded another corner, more guards, each bringing their weapons to bear once they’d composed themselves, he vaulted bouncing off the wall and rotated into an almost gymnastic body twist guns pointed forwards he fired as he corkscrewed through their volley of fire.
Midnight had no compunctions about killing however unlike the majority of his race he had little interest in depriving the families of mere security guards from their loved ones.
Contrary to what his pointy eared hearing had overheard the last guard whispering he wasn’t carrying an energy weapon, he had on occasion carried contraband equipment but he’d seen firsthand the untold damage his own people had wrought having obtained high technologies from other World lines.
Infinities secret was a good thing, no his equipment was comparable to this World lines but carried enough differences to cause their technology issue.
From EMP rounds to the inertia gel rounds that blew the guards off their feet and left them moaning upon the ground.
Despite the extreme level of fitness that came from inhuman musculature and rigorous training he was tiring, time was ticking as he spurred himself forwards towards the Towers West wall.
