As Xyrus and his 20 men reached the surface, they immediately mounted motor bikes that had been modified with weapons that could take down a Sherman tank if need be. All the men were dressed in a special camouflage outfit that aided in them in this highly covert mission to remove the threat that was bleeding the island of it's people. The surface scavengers were mainly by Central Park and the Southern part of the Island where they bartered people for weapons and food off of the Piers with other Scavengers.
To be as effective as possible given Xyrus only had 20 men with him, he commanded each man hold their fire unless completely necessary so to keep from wasting unnecessary ammunition. The men broke up in teams of 7. Xyrus led Alpha team, Lucius led Bravo team, and Lee led Charlie team. Charlie team reported a big celebration going on in the middle of Central Park, so team Bravo moved in, they broke up what seemed to be the surface scavengers main form of entertainment, making people who lacked any skill or purpose, and had been purged from their cities to fight one another to the death. Code Black, was in play, which meant silent kill. The men took out the outer perimeter, but making it to the center of it all was going to be quite a task calling attention to themselves due to the huge stadium lights that made it seem as bright as day. "All guards in the outer perimeter are down, Xyrus what next?" reported Bravo team. "Alpha going to the center, out!" replied Xyrus. "Xyrus, don't," Xiera demanded in a firm feminine tone. "Xyrus do you hear me?" she shouted, but good old Xyrus was hell bent on ending this, and didn't want to take risk losing any of his own people. "Xyrus is is in the center, he's about to fight!"
"You all want to see a fight do you?" Well I will give you 1 and 1 Last fight, and then we will close this down, as your park is surrounded by over hundred of my Special Forces, so if you're innocent, you've got nothing to worry, but if you're part of the Killings, then you're judgement day has come." Xyrus announced in the middle of what seemed similar to that of a fighting ring. The people roared, and shouted "Kill Him!" The fair fight Xyrus thought he'd have was as fictitious as his claim. Over 10 men with weapons came at Xyrus, perhaps he felt bad about his role in all of this, that he permitted the first few to get in some licks before he detached them from the weapons they were holding by amputating each of their hands. The crowd demanded to see Xyrus fall, as another dozen men came at him, this time with hand guns. With the speed of cat, Xyrus leaped in the air dropping a smoke bomb as he utilized his suit's stealth mode, and fell behind the group of men detaching them from their weapons once again. The blades were part of his gloves and elbows so with each strike he ripped and tore his attacker in shreds. Xyrus had yet to use any of his hi-tech hardware that would easily end his opponents plight for blood, but felt it gave him an unfair advantage given his advanced training. Of course one could argue it was because he'd been waiting for such a day to use his unique skill set instead. Nevertheless, the second set of armed men didn't so much as leave a mark on Xyrus. What appeared to be the head council or leader of these scavengers decided to make an appearance from an overlooking Bleacher, the crowd separated as a man surrounded by soldiers came down the bleachers. These men were clearly no regular civilian but rather of military background. Each men had tethered uniforms, armed with M16 riffles coming towards Xyrus.
"Alpha, move in!" Xyrus commanded over his ear piece radio. And within seconds, 6 Cycles pulled in front of Xyrus as the group of armed men stopped in their tracks as each had red dots from Alpha team's cycle's infrared guns who took their rightful aim at each approaching man's chest. "What do you want?" Commanded the Leader from behind his men whom all looked as if they were already dead. "The Island back and order, but for now, we can begin by your men putting their weapons down, and everyone remaining in their seats, for if not, no one will be making it out of here," replied Xyrus. "He's bluffing, he hasn't 100 men, he's mad I tell you, now I will tell you what will happen here, you and your friends will get on your shiny little bikes and ride off, wait, NO, in fact you have lost your right to them, you will actually lay down your weapons, remove yourself from my bikes, and become my slaves," replied the leader with a massive amount of crowd cheering in the background. The faces on the soldiers was not of men ready to die, but of scared men who had no choice but to do as he commanded. Due to the power of this man, many people seemed to follow him out of fear of what he would do to their families. Xyrus, didn't want to back down, he thought for a second, knowing that his words would have leave behind a large amount of blood on his hands. "OK, I will give every person here the opportunity to leave their seats and meet my men in the outer perimeter where they will be taken to safety, but if you remain, you will be dealt with zero tolerance and with the same judgement as this Dead Man who speaks to me now."
People began to rise up and leave their seats when the Leader shouted, "Sit and Die honorably with me, leave and so help me, as long as I've got air in my lungs, each of you and your families will be hunted, raped, and sold as slaves!" "Death is guaranteed to you right now if you remain in your seats, that I can promise you, but if you leave, your lives will be your own, and you'll finally be free of this tyrant!" shouted Xyrus over the leader. "Enough talk, tonight we dance in the belly of the beast, FIRE!!!" shouts the Leader. As soon as his soldiers began shooting the cycles let off about 10 rounds into each soldier's chest. Many of them had bullet proof vests but nothing strong enough to withhold the caliber of these special bullets. The Leader took cover behind his men as he made his way towards Xyrus with a huge Ax. Xyurs quickly side stepped the attack and quickly kicked the leader's knee, ribs, and then went up top with a crescent kick to the side of his face, and then repeatedly connected blows to his body and face. The speed of his attack was unprecedented, The crowd dispersed into what looked like a herd of cattle, the remaining men of the leader was ordered to not let anyone leave, so the commenced firing upon those who fled. The remainder of the crowd loyal to the leader took down 4 of Alpha team. The remaining two, stood back to back fending off the attack of a angry mob, when suddenly 14 cycles began splicing through bodies like a hot knife through butter. Xyrus grabbed the motionless body of the Leader, took him by the face and made him watch as his people fell to the cycles' non-stop rounds of bullets. The leader, with all the energy he had left, grinned, laughed, and said, "just you wait and see what's coming." With that, Xyrus snapped his neck in one sharp motion of his torso. The lifeless body of whom he believed to be the leader of the Surface Scavengers fell to the ground. The sound of bullets fell silent as the thuds of each body hit the ground to never rise up ever again. Xyrus fell to his knees in disgust at the carnage that he'd left behind, feeling torn between the plan and his humanity.
