BGM: Somnium ~ Abyssal

In these depths, sunlight only provides a dim, blue backdrop filled with black silhouettes of rocks and wreckage. A distinctive shape descends, arms and legs and a long serpentine tail terminating in teeth and guns, identified only by the pink glow of her eyes.

She descends, but does not approach the bottom. Arcing upward, the Abyssal battleship glides effortlessly above the seafloor instead, lifting to avoid a rock formation, then descending so she still has a good view of the bottom. She rises again, moving parallel to a rusting hull of a long-destroyed warship, then skims across the once-flat flight deck. It's here that she stops, her tail coiling so she can settle on it, one hand resting on the armored 'head'. She lifts the other, watching the cuts on her forearm start to close, the leaking oil coming to a stop.

"So that's the end of it," Re-Class states, "The Atoll is gone and all our forces either defected to the South fleet or are straight up missing. But..." She leans back, balanced on both hands while those pink eyes look towards the surface, "Something's bugging me. Back when we started all of this, you mentioned that we're fueled by our hate and anger. I get that. But you said there was something stronger. I never figured out what that was."

"The answer is simple."

A voice from inside the wreckage gets her attention and Re glances down, between the rusting supports of the long-rotted flight deck she rests on. Below, in the darkness, a glimpse of movement. A reclining figure, sprawled comfortably amidst the ruined warship. One arm curls upward, to rest regenerating, skeletal fingers alongside a pale cheek. Glowing crimson eyes open, narrowed upward.
