Plot summary[edit]

During the Operation SCOUR attack on Word of Blake-controlled Demeter, Fifth Crucis Lancers combat medic Azalea Thomas is sent to treat an injured MechWarrior. Levi Fennimore's fallen 'Mech blocks one of the bridges into New Demeter City, the cockpit having taken a devastating hit. Levi's body is pinned in place, practically cut in half by the wreckage, blood only held in by the beam that broke his body. After one final conversation, Azalea desperately tries to extract and treat the wounded Levi, knowing it is a hopeless endeavor. He dies in her care.
