KRU - Chapter ten - page oneDante and the others had finally arrived at the main base safely, much to the Commander's relief. The last thing he wanted was to die doing something completely stupid like flying a helicopter. The Red ordered Malachy and Switch to stay with the helicopter while Astrum and Teaka would provide him some cover as he ran to the closest office to access the main communication system.KRU - Chapter ten - page one by comiKazzie
He found the nearest office on the main floor off of the air field and started up the computer; a task that always tried the Commander's patience. Dante quickly contacted every Sergeant Major from each of the smaller sister bases in the surrounding regions and was also able to contact a few of the Air Force bases. They were already aware of the attack from Rue's distress calls and had suited up and flown out an hour ago.
Feeling as if that was all he could do at the base, he once again joined the others to give them further instructions. It was going to ta
KRU - Chapter nine - page thirty twoWhen Elder Warwick found Nero, he called Geek over to disable his collar, as well as Ekko's. Now that she knew how to do it, it took her half the time to get them off. Nero felt the rush of his energy return to them and used it to 'see' his old friend's face again and gave Elder Warwick a manly hug.KRU - Chapter nine - page thirty two by comiKazzie
"You lying bastard." Nero laughed, clapping the Elder on the back. "Just a flesh wound, my tail."
Elder Warwick laughed at the comment and apologized. "I didn't want you to worry, Nero, I'm sorry."
"Ah, don't be sorry Jace. I would have done the same thing." Nero replied, letting him go. "Now that we know what we're up against, what do you say we get back out there and kick some ass and take names?" he added with a smirk under his mask.
"I say that's a brilliant idea, brother. We must warn the others and I must also contact Rue somehow. We are going to need help from the sky if we are to take
KRU - Chapter nine - page thirty oneElder Warwick sat up quickly, taking in what seemed to feel like his first breath of life, and stared blankly ahead of him, trying to comprehend everything he was feeling at that very moment. All of it was familiar but somehow new at the same time, as if everything he had known was just the surface and now he had pushed passed the barrier into a whole different level of understanding. His senses were overwhelmed from the intense impact of the energies around him. He could feel the connection of every single Burillian on the planet and he couldn't help but smile when he sensed all of the Great Elders from the past millennium. All of their combined strength and knowledge was passed on to him as well as their responsibilities. If it weren't for the comfort and protection he felt from their residual energies within himself, the sudden shift and increase of his energy and senses would have been maddening.KRU - Chapter nine - page thirty one by comiKazzie
The glow from his eyes and the inside of hi
KRU - Chapter nine - page thirtyNero, still without the ability to use his energy to 'see', grabbed onto the nearest Elder and asked him what was happening. When Nero was told that Elder Warwick was so close to death, it hit him hard. It wasn't just a flesh wound, Elder Warwick only told him that so he wouldn't panic even more. Or feel the overwhelming guilt that he was the reason why his friend since childhood was about to die, which he now felt. He was already devastated.KRU - Chapter nine - page thirty by comiKazzie
Nox pushed her way through the crowd, as she too spotted Gunner and Scout enter the courtyard moments before and wondered why they had come back so soon. She gasped when she spotted her father in Ekko's arms, pale, almost lifeless, and soaked in his own blood.
"Father!" she cried, running to the Elder's side.
"No..Ekko!" she raged. "How did this happen?!" she asked, her eyes demanding answers but her face softened when she saw how upset Ekko was.
As Geek rushed
KRU - Chapter nine - page twenty nineBack at the Monastery, Geek had finally found Nico and told him where the others went. He was a little disappointed that he was left behind but he didn't voice his complaint, he knew everyone here needed as much help as they could get so he stayed near the redhead as they fought to keep the foot soldiers away.KRU - Chapter nine - page twenty nine by comiKazzie
Kyra had climbed the stairs of the Monastery to the top floor to get access to the roof and assembled her sniper rifle. She was facing the courtyard where most of the soldiers were attacking and fired off rounds, getting headshot after headshot. She could hear the chatter over the radio in her earpiece about the specialized weapons the Empire was using and her worry for Dante increased ten fold.
When she spotted a faint white glow off in the distance, she used her scope to see what it was. She gasped when she saw Elder Warwick slumped over on Gunner's neck which was covered in blood. She focused on the soldiers again to clea
KRU - Chapter nine - page twenty eightWhen the robot's arm dropped down, the Elder slid off the blade and hit the ground, knocking the wind out of him. He turned over slowly, ignoring the searing pain in his midsection and got to his feet once again. Blood was pouring out of his mouth and the act of breathing in and out was becoming more painful for the Elder. He quickly limped over to Nero still on the ground and knelt by him.KRU - Chapter nine - page twenty eight by comiKazzie
"I'm here, brother." he choked out. "You must..get back to..the Monastery."
"Jace, you sound injured!" Nero stated, hearing his friend struggle to breathe.
"Just a..flesh wound." he lied, slurring his words.
Ekko finally cleared the area by the truck and let the prisoners out. Feeling accomplished, he went to find his father and Nero. He spotted the two on the ground off in the distance and started running toward them.
Elder Warwick slumped to the side, he was taking in short breaths to ease the pain
KRU - Chapter nine - page twenty sevenElder Warwick nodded at Ekko once more and took off again as the young Purple followed close behind. The Elder was protecting the innocent Burillians caught up in the middle of the fight without weapons or armor. Nero was nearby taking out more soldiers as shockwaves exploded in different directions.KRU - Chapter nine - page twenty seven by comiKazzie
That was when Elder Warwick and the others ran into trouble. Large trucks filled with more soldiers approached the heart of the city as more large robots dropped from cargo ships, hovering above the ground. The robots were one thing but now Elder Warwick knew why they were using high pitched pulses to temporarily stun his people. Once the Burillians were stunned, the Empire's soldiers scanned them with hand held devices to find if they were radioactive from the Korithium. If they were positive for radiation, they were executed immediately, if they weren't, the soldiers put special restraints on them in the form of a collar around their neck
KRU - Chapter nine - page twenty six"Gunner, Scout, attack those robots!" Elder Warwick ordered.KRU - Chapter nine - page twenty six by comiKazzie
The creatures took off like a shot toward the dozen robots among the foot soldiers as Elder Warwick turned to his son. "Ekko, I want you to stay close. Stay focused, stay calm, and remember your training. You will see death all around you but you must not let that effect you. You are a warrior and your job is to take down the enemy. You will have to make some very tough decisions on the battlefield, my son."
"I'm ready Father." Ekko said sternly.
The Elder smiled briefly at the young Purple. "Then let us take these bastards down." he said with a smirk, and pulled out his swords.
Nero and Ekko followed suit as they all charged into battle. They all brought up their energy shields and did what they did best. Elder Warwick immediately beheaded a handful of soldiers as he pushed his way through the chaotic crowd of fighting soldiers. Nero launched himself up into the air with a shoc

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.
