#Salvaging – August 14, 2013
Fera'Sel keeps going across gingerly, then grabs the human's hand when she is in range and pulls herself across.
Renala steps towards the top of the incline where the last two who crossed the stream will come up. She doesn't say anything, but still glances around in case the movement they saw earlier would appear again.
Steve assists Fera in climbing the incline and turns back to the others. "See? No problem." he says, smirking at the young human.
Renala looks up at the branches as she notices snow falling from them, mostly to check if the branches seem like they could support a person.
Renala returns her gaze to the others, seeming a bit worried. "Branches look like they'd support a bit of weight," she says. "If what we saw earlier was a person, she could be up there."
Fera'Sel looks up with her arms crossed, deciding not to ready her overload program right away. She inspects the branches she can see, trying to find any sign of someone spying on them. She's standing stiffly otherwise.
Steve looks upwards, scanning the trees for a moment. "Or it could've just been an animal... Or the wind... Or-... You get the idea." he says, attempting to sound reassuring. He turns his attention away from the trees and back to the asari, "It could've been anything. All we can do is keep our guard up and continue following the trail."
Renala nods. "Yeah, probably," she says while a biotic shimmer forms around her. "This mission just has me a bit on edge..." She spends the energy to form a barrier, though it's nothing better than what could stop a single bullet from a hand-canon.
Tyranniac| The tracks ahead are much the same as the previous ones, leading deeper into the forest. It's gotten a bit darker.
Fera'Sel stays behind the others as they walk, but this time she prepares her program. She's still visibly stiff.
Renala has not noticed whatever's between the two trees yet, having been occupied with checking their surroundings.
Steve spots it as they get closer. He stops suddenly and points towards the shape, but remains quiet.
Renala raises a brow as Steve stops, and halts her movement in turn. Her gaze follows his gesture and she notices the object as well. "Any idea what it is?"
Steve shakes his head silently and unholsters his Tempest. Keeping his weapon at his side, he slowly approaches the shape.
Tyranniac| Once he got closer it would be clear that it is the mangled, mostly eaten remains of a human, with the clothes spread in the surrounding snow, ripped apart.
Renala unholsters the 'borrowed' Carnifex and follows towards the shape. As she can see it's a mangled body, she glances away and puts her pistol back in its holster.
Fera'Sel turns away as she notices what the shape is, deciding to keep looking into the trees instead.
Tyranniac| As they reach the remains two more bodies can be seen nearby, along with blood-stained snow.
Steve eases up once he realizes what it is, but keeps his weapon at hand. Approaching the corpses, he looks around for any possible threats. "Careful... Whatever did this may still be around..."
Tyranniac| Two of the bodies have weapons near them, one a civilian Phalanx model and the other some kind of hunting rifle, seemingly of human make.
Renala nods and again takes the pistol out of its holster. She pops the clip out of it and replaces it with a new one, as she has no idea how many shots the former survivor had fired with it... or how to check the clip on that particular pistol.
Steve sighs and glances at the others. "You know the drill by now. Fan out and look for anything that might be of use." he says, moving towards the nearest body. "Sorry." he responds upon hearing the asari, "I know how to use em', not fix em'."
Renala sighs. "I'll just look it up when I get back to Miner's Respite," she says and puts the pistol in its holster. She looks at the body who had the Phalanx pistol nearest to it and hesitantly walks over to it.
Tyranniac| The nearest corpse doesn't seem to have anything useful, not that it would be easy to find in the mess of shredded clothes and bloodstained snow that surrounds it.
Renala crouches down, and mutters an apology as she picks up the Phalnx pistol. She takes a step back. "Nothing of use here either, except the gun if it works." She inspects the pistol, having made herself quite familiar with the Phalanx pistol.
Tyranniac| The pistol is unremarkable, but it seems likely that it has taken damage from the cold and the snow.
The third body has nothing of use either, but near it can be seen the feathery white corpse of an animal.
Renala puts a new clip into it as her omni-tool comes to life. She runs the weapon's diagnostic checks with her omni-tool.
Tyranniac| The animal is a lizard-like creature covered in a thick coat of white feathers. It is smaller than a human, but not by that much. A set of sharp teeth and claws indicate it is a predator. The body has two bullet holes.
Renala lets her omni-tool's interface dissipate and takes off her backpack. She puts both of the guns in it and takes out the one she bought at Crazy Bob's. Closing the backpack and putting it back on, she walks over to Steve, looking over the animal carefully. "Hopefully they're not quick runners."
