There was a flash of light. Enigma-2 was alive again. He took an gasp of breath, that was unnecessary due to his machine frame. Enigma was a Exo, a machine with a sentient human mind, thus he didn't need to eat, drink, or breath. Enigma-2 rubbed the back of his neck and looked his ghost, Sienna, from which the light had originated.  

"Dying sucks." those were his first words.

"You could avoid it by not being shot." the reddish brown shell replied looking at his with her singular eye.

"Insulting but true." Enigma-2 said. "What of Arac and Mya?"

Arac and Mya were apart of his fireteam. Arac was a titan and Mya a warlock respectively. 

"I am picking up no traces of nearby life signs." Replied his ghost.

Enigma-2 slung his pulse rifle over his shoulder and drew a hand cannon.

"I can't contact the Vangard or anyone for that matter down here. Lets get out of this cave" His ghost suggested.

Enigma-2 began to make his way over to the exit but three bodies caught his eye. Two of which were Mya and Arac, their ghosts lay broken next to them. It was their final death. The third was husk of the servitor that was supplying ether to the fallen in the area.

"Rest in piece friends." Enigma-2 said in a hushed voice.

He ran up the sloping corridor and out into the forest air.

Sienna his ghost hovered, then called out over the vanguard channel. "Hello? Is there anyone in the vicinity that can respond?"

Information

Key information

Ghosts- A Ghost is a sapient robotic drone created by the Traveler shortly after the Collapse with the purpose of locating, resurrecting, and supporting an individual capable of wielding the Light.

Traveler- The Traveler is a mysterious spherical entity floating above Earth. Massive in scale, it hangs motionless in the skies above the Last City built in its shadow. The Traveler is an ancient and immensely powerful machine, and the source of Ghosts and the paracausal powers of the Guardians. It is a source of Light, though not the only source in the universe. Its outer surface is made of Neutronium and "Electroweak matter", both hypothetical materials; the former is believed to make up Neutron Stars, and the latter is based on a fundamental force that hasn't existed since the dawn of time.

Last City- final bastion of humanity

The Golden Age- era in history when the human race had achieved a very prosperous existence, having colonized the entire Solar System.

The Collapse- cataclysm in human history that nearly brought the species to extinction. Following the Golden Age after mankind had colonized the Solar System, the Darkness attacked humanity and pushed it back to its homeworld, Earth.

The Vangard- elite Guardians who coordinate the Last City's defenses, organize assaults on enemy strongholds and assassinations of their leaders, and mentor newly-risen Guardians. Some Guardians work directly for the Vanguard as scouts, investigating potential threats to the City far afield. There is one for each class.

 

Playable Races

Exoself-aware war machines

Human- sapient species native to the planet Earth

Awoken- resemble baseline humans, with the notable exception of having pale blue, purple, green, or gray skin. They also have luminescent eyes with glowing irises.

 

Classes for Guardians

Hunter

Hunters once prowled the wilderness and wastelands, taking big risks for even bigger rewards. You're no outlaw – at least not any more – but making your own luck has always meant bending the rules. Your unique brand of daring and ingenuity is needed now more than ever.

No need for a sheet unless you want to.

Thanks for the post means I can continue the story without editting.

"No response." Sienna looked at him.

"Figures. I need a vantage point." Enigma-2 replied.

"Climb a tree?" His ghost suggested.

Enigma-2 shook his head. "Remember that hill where we killed that fallen captian not to long ago? That'll be good enough."

He started off at a jog headed due north. There weren't any enemies, which concerned him. He kept his hand cannon handy and kept running. 

He reached the hill and shot a flare. He turned to his ghost.

"That might have not been the wisest idea."

"You think?" Was the reply.

He check his ammunition in his cannon and his rifle. He could hear the sounds of the fallen approaching.

"Make a final call."

"If anyone can hear this we are a lone hunter guardian. Please respond. Over?"
