KRU - Chapter ten - page fifteenNero glanced around him with a heavy heart as Scout slowly trotted through the destroyed streets of the North region; once a thriving city reduced to piles of ruble and ash. The sun's light brought out the worst of the scene around him but it didn't make a difference for the blind Elder. He only "saw" the outlines of his environment, outlines of inanimate objects, and living people were bodies of energy in his eyes. He could easily tell each race apart by the color of their energy.KRU - Chapter ten - page fifteen by comiKazzie
There were Greens, medics and nurses, as well as Elders from the North, coming together as they collected the injured and the dead. There were body bags laying in dozens of rows in the courtyard of the Monastery that once stood, off in the distance there was a separate section for the humans that we're left behind by the Empire. All the bags were only half zipped up exposing the faces of the bodies to be identified.
Nero stopped Scout and jumped down to speak to one of the medic
KRU - Chapter ten - page fourteenWith Gunner's speed, Dante and Elder Warwick arrived at the crash site quickly and dismounted to begin their search. Dante immediately spotted Rue's helmet and as he picked it up, his feeling of failure became all the more real. He felt he owed Rue, and he wasn't there to help her when she needed it.KRU - Chapter ten - page fourteen by comiKazzie
"This is her helmet." He told the Elder sadly as he passed it to him.
Elder Warwick gently held the destroyed helmet in his hands and the hope he was holding on to had faded. The state of her helmet and the cockpit of the helicopter was too severe and he had to accept the fact that she may not have survived. Dante sensed the hopelessness in the Elder's energy and it hit him hard. Elder Warwick held the helmet up to Gunner for the beast to smell it.
"Get her scent, boy." He said gently. "Help us find her."
Gunner sniffed the helmet, getting the scent of her blood and raised his giant head to the sky and took a deep breath in. He then hopped up and down on
KRU - Chapter ten - page thirteenThe General shook his head at the soldiers restraining Geek. "Get that traitor on the ship and pack up!" He barked at is subordinates. "Our work is done here."KRU - Chapter ten - page thirteen by comiKazzie
Malachy grabbed Geek protectively, pulling her away from the soldiers as she cried out hysterically while Astrum was shoved up the ramp of the ship. Astrum had kept his eyes on Geek the entire time as the soldiers stopped him at the top of the ramp and put a collar on him, blocking their Bond and the Burillian instantly felt the void in his chest where he used to feel the warmth of her and the baby's energy.
Switch continued to fight and struggle in Elder Warwick's arms. "WAIT! HE'S LYING TO PROTECT ME!! I DID IT!!" he yelled only for his cries to fall upon deaf ears as the engines fired up. His poor, tired mind was trying to come up with anything to get his brother back but it was too late.
Dante held on to Kyra as they too watched the heartbreaking scene in front of them. They both had a new level
KRU - Chapter ten - page twelveAstrum, Malachy, and the others all watched intensely as Kyra was now at the end of the gun.KRU - Chapter ten - page twelve by comiKazzie
"Give me proof or he dies!" The General barked.
Kyra's heart was pounding in her chest as she tried to think of something to resolve the situation before Dante paid the price but she came up short and she was scared. "We don't have proof!" She cried.
Astrum was also tried thinking of something to keep the peace and he suddenly realized what he had to do. The moment the General cocked the gun, Astrum shouted "Wait!"
All eyes were on Astrum as he stepped up to the General with his hands up at chest level as he moved carefully and cautiously as he spoke. "I killed Von Strouse. I was the one who assisted him with his operation." He said quickly.
Both Switch and Geek's eyes went wide and Switch was the first to react and pulled Astrum back. "What are you doing?!" He panicked.
"The only thing that will save us now, little brother." Astrum replied gently, giving Switch an apologetic
KRU - Chapter ten - page elevenThe Commander furrowed his brows when he spotted the Wronen brothers. "Where are the other two? The humans?" He mumbled.KRU - Chapter ten - page eleven by comiKazzie
Geek looked their way as well and got a sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach. When they met up with the group, Astrum faced Switch and gently grabbed his arms to guide him to the destroyed vehicle behind him and sat him down on the hood. Switch's blood splattered face was void of emotion as he stared blankly ahead of him and Astrum's heart ached to see his brother in such desolation.
Astrum then saluted the Commander, glancing at Geek, wanting to scoop her up in his arms but he knew he had to put his personal feelings aside while addressing his Superior.
"Where is the rest of your team, First Sergeant?" Dante asked sternly, still feeling the anger in his heart and unintentionally bringing it out in his voice.
Astrum hesitated, not wanting to voice the words and make them that much more real. 'Nico and Teaka didn't make it, Sir." He answered gri
KRU - Chapter ten - page ten"What is it, Sergeant Major?" Malachy asked with concern as the small Red started frantically looking around the area for Rue.KRU - Chapter ten - page ten by comiKazzie
"My best friend was on that chopper, we need to look for her!" Kyra snapped as she looked at all the bodies on the ground, looked around vehicles and large chunks of concrete, anywhere Rue could have dragged herself to safety.
"I do not sense any energies in the area, she may not have survived." He replied, trying to get her to focus on their mission.
"YOU DON'T KNOW THAT!" Kyra snapped as she whipped around to glare at the Blue. "She could be wearing a collar, now help me look!" She added as she continued her search.
"With all due respect, Ma'am, we don't have the time. The Commander is waiting for us." Malachy stated carefully as to not agitate her more. "We must end this."
Kyra stopped, her back to the group, she knew he was right but it didn't help how she felt. She never left a fallen soldier behind, but she couldn't sense or see Rue anywhere a
KRU - Chapter ten - page nineThe sun had just peeked over the mountain tops, lighting up the carnage that covered most of the North region. Tall buildings were reduced to ruins, the Monastery of the North was no longer standing, trapping all of the Burillians in the shelter beneath it, the streets were covered in bodies from both sides, destroyed vehicles were still smoking from fires, large chunks of concrete and metal along with dust and ash were spread out over the area of the war zone and crashed helicopters and robots completed the devastating sight. But the most unsettling thing about the scene was the silence.KRU - Chapter ten - page nine by comiKazzie
The Empire pulled back to regroup and revise their strategy now that the sun was up and most of their robots were destroyed.
Elder Warwick, Nero, Ekko and Dante kept hidden as they closed in on the Empire's troops. Information was given to a Red soldier by an enemy who was facing the end of a rifle and pleading for his life. That information reached Dante quickly and now
KRU - Chapter ten - page fiveJust as Astrum was about to give instructions to his team, a vehicle skidded next to them, kicking up dust. They all raised their rifles and were about to fire when they saw it was Nico who jumped out of the jeep.KRU - Chapter ten - page five by comiKazzie
"You really think I was going to let you guys have all the fun?" He laughed as he walked up to them. "Pretty lame being the only human at the Monast-oh God dammit.." Nico blurted out and put his palm over his face, knowing he screwed up.
"What do you mean by the only human there?! Where is Nelle?!" Astrum snapped. "You were supposed to watch her!"
"She..left with the Commander's wife, Az. I couldn't stop her, man, she was going to stomp my ass!" He said in his defense. "But I sent Z after her and I left shortly after to find you guys."
Astrum was fuming and was about to scold Geek just as Dante had scolded Kyra and Switch was the one who had to defuse the situation for once. "You know she must have a pretty damn good reason to leave, Az. I

KRU Chapter one - page one A military cargo ship cut through the misty clouds, blending in with the dull grey sky. Now responsible for the payload that was strapped down in crates inside the cargo bay, the crew of Korithium Retrieval Unit specialists made their way to the designated base for processing. With more than a few lives hanging in the balance and a paycheck to set them for life waiting at the end of the mission last thing they expected was a mutiny. Last one they thought to instigate the mutiny was their own Commanding officer. There he stood though, a look more serious then they had ever seen on his face.
I am not a strong writer, you have been warned.
This is only a rough draft, I'm just getting all my ideas down in writing and then I'll go back and fix it. C:
To sum the story up in a few words, it's full of violence, sex, death, what the fuckery, and everything in between. It's like an alien soap opera without the suck. ;D

|What are your characters?|
They are Burillian, an original species created by me.
Are they fan characters of (insert game/show/movie/comic)?
Are they aquatic? The blue ones look aquatic.
No. Their skin is soft and non-slimy, just like ours. They don't have gills or fins. Just no.
How did you come up with them?
This explains a little about the process of how I came up with them. Astrum was the first Burillian created in December of 2011. The rest of the characters soon followed. The whole process lasted over 5 months before I finally became satisfied with the design.
Why are there red, blue, green and purple ones?
Burillians have 4 races; red, blue, green and purple. Each race is born in a different region on their planet and each race are given specific jobs. Reds are the more physical race. They make up the military, physical labor, grunt work, etc. Blues are the more intellectual race. They make up the teachers, the scientists, doctors, etc. They are assigned the jobs that require a higher academic level. Greens are the caretakers, the farmers, the nurses, etc. They're the more gentle of the races. And finally, Purples are the "enlightened ones", the Elders of the species. They have a higher understanding of the energy that makes up their species and the universe. They spend their entire life training in combat and meditation and once they reach a certain age, they become an Elder on the council.
They also have slightly different features. The Blues have more rounded antenna/energy receptors and tail tips, Reds have more sharper ones, Greens have more sharper ones as well but they're slightly curved towards their head as well as a sharper tip on their tails, and Purples have angled ones that are slightly outward.
Females look slightly different than the males. They don't have patches on their skin and they have white hair.
Do they all have patches of another color on their skin?
Only the males.
What are the glowing things?
Those are the very life force of a Burillian. Burillians are very sensitive to the energy around them and are capable of using the energy as a defense mechanism. They can send out "shockwaves" of energy. Kind of like a bomb without the fiery destruction, just the force of the explosion. Hope that makes sense.
If the light dims, they are sick or dying. The light also reflects how they're feeling. It gets more intense as they get angrier/excited.
They are also capable of transferring their energy to another being to help heal them if they are sick or wounded.
If you were to touch them, it feels like their skin. Think of it as putting your finger over a flashlight, the light shines through. That's kind how it works except the light is coming from the inside of their body.
They also need the light to see in the dark because they have very poor night vision. Night time on their planet is our dusk, it doesn't go completely dark so they have no need for night vision.
Can you explain what they have on their heads and why they're there?
This ref explains everything.
Do they have any special abilities?
Yes, they have a few. Because they're so sensitive to energy, just by touching another being, they can feel that person's energy. They can tell with a simple touch of your skin if you're sick, how you're feeling emotionally, and can even tell if you're lying to them.
They can also use their energy to defend themselves by sending out shockwaves. They can be as small or as big as they please but the bigger it is, the more of a risk they take with their life.
What is their diet?
They are strictly carnivores. They can eat any kind of meat but they prefer fresh, raw, red meat. They're not fond of fish.
Are they part of your story K.R.U?
Yes, they are all the main characters and the story revolves around them.
Why do they have such small pupils?
Their pupils don't work like ours. They stay the same size, hence why they can't see in the dark. But they don't need to when they give off their own light.
How long do they live?
200 years on average.
How tall are they?
Males are between 5'5" and 6'5" and females are between 5'1" and 5'11". There are no physical abnormalities.
Are they an open species/Can I make one?
I'm sorry but no. Only close friends have permission.
Can I make a hybrid of your species and my species?
No. They rarely breed outside of their species (Astrum and Switch are they only exception) so no, I would not appreciate it if you did that.
Why did you pick Red for your Bursona?
I'm not smart enough to be a Blue, I don't give enough of a shit to be a Green, and I'm not wise enough to be a Purple.
How many characters do you have currently?
51 characters so far. xD
Why do all your alien characters have human sounding names?
Honestly don't have the time to sit for hours coming up with weird-ass alien names that can't be pronounced for all my characters. I quite like the fact that they have names that we can relate to.

Is awkward, weird, nerdy, emotionally damaged, intolerant of asshattery, and a xenophile. <3 You've been warned. ;D On the flipside, I have a great sense of humor, I'm understanding and laid back for the most part (unless life shits on me and I'm stressed out), I'm always willing to listen and help you in any way I can, and I'm honest/straight forward with people.
Music is a huge part of my life. I listen to a lot of metal and rock with a side of alternative, hip hop, instrumental, a mix of techno and metal, and a mess of guilty pleasures. I am very easy going with music, I'll listen to anything, really.
I love to watch movies. Action, Horror, Sci-fi, Fantasy, Comedy, Drama, doesn't matter. I don't like a lot of sappy chick flicks but if there's humor in it then maybe I'll tolerate it. xD But I looove superhero movies and cheesy horrors. I obsess over OSTs too.
My all time favorite TV Shows are Breaking Bad, the Walking Dead and Supernatural. Jesse, Glenn and Dean are my favorites. Especially Jesse. Umph. That sexy-ass boy.
If that's all cool with you, we'll get along just fine. :3
My gallery only consists of my story K.R.U related art and characters/Burillians.
I also do a lot of lazy-ass sketchy/sloppy art. I have artistic ADD and can't work on the same piece for too long or I'll lose interest in it. But I am capable of doing decent pieces of art when I get the motivation. They're just few and far between! S'just how I roll.
I've been on dA since 2006.
