Presence of God

By Brendan Franklin

~

When I look around, o’ Lord,

My soul you shall enthrall -

For Your intrepid veil of love

Encompasses us all.

When I consider this, o’ Lord

Such joy does fill my heart,

And there I shall proclaim to You:

“My God, how great Thou art!”

There in your embrace, o’ Lord,

Peaceful like a dream,

My guilty, shameful dragons rise -

Forgiven and redeemed.
 

Your pure and cleansing mercy, Lord,

Hast torn my sin apart.

Until my dying breath, I’ll sing:

“My God, how great Thou art!”

Pvt. Krieger - 'TIER-1' Character
Name: Hans Krieger
Rank: Private First Class
Age: 24
Nationality: German
Faction: TIER-1
~
Bio:
    Previously a soldier under the Regulator Army, Pvt. Hans Krieger defected to TIER-1 shortly after the events of the "TIER-Z" incident, in which his fellow men left him to die at the hands of the enemy. Out of spite and anger, Krieger joined up with TIER-1 remnants in order to 
exact his revenge on his former allies.
    In time, Krieger proved himself as a skilled and loyal soldier on the battlefield - earning the trust of his newfound comrades. As a result, he was given the honor of serving under Sgt. Jenna Mosley - a TIER-1 elitist, specially trained in hand-to-hand combat. Together, they mainly operated as an "hit-and-run" team, able to neutralize a Regulator patrol in a matter of moments. Krieger served Mosley as her apprentice for the rest of his employment under TIER-1, up until the events of the "Wasteland Massacre," circa 2055 A.D.

Vahlyereey Bullikov and Deadbolt - 'Regulators'
Name: Vahlyereey Bullikov
Rank: Corporal
Age: 25
Nationality: Russian
Faction: Regulators
~
STORY:
    Cpl. Vahlyereey Bullikov and his skirmisher, "Deadbolt," are two of the few Regulator survivors from TIER-Z.
When Bullikov was drafted into a scouting party of Regulator soldiers to investigate the happenings of a rival faction, he scarcely thought anything of it. Little did he know that this "simple reconnaissance mission" would soon turn into a living hell for him and his squad mates. After some exploration into TIER-1 HQ, they were surprised to not have encountered any resistance from enemy soldiers - as there wasn't a single trace of life to be found in the area. Barracks, bunkers, research labs and guard posts lay desolate and burning. It was now clear to Bullikov and his fellow men that something devastating and sinister had torn through the TIER-1 compounds, but what? Or who? As far as Regulator command knew, they (along with TIER-1) were the only active presence to be found in the surrounding barren wastelands.
    Bullikov, along with several of his comrades, insisted that the squad leaders called for reinforcements. Unfortunately, they were ignored by their superiors and were forced to accompany the others further into TIER-1 HQ - as a result, they would all pay dearly for these actions. Upon entering the main underground labyrinth of the headquarters, they were trapped and engaged by hostile TIER-1 soldiers. Though, as Bullikov came to observe, something was strangely wrong with the enemy troops - they carried no firearms, their armor was torn to pieces, and their pupils had shrunk to the size of tiny dots. Most terrifying of all, they came sprinting and screaming at them with no hesitation - driven by some unquenchable rage; insane almost.
    Caught off guard, the Regulators barely had enough time to react before the enemy was upon them. Bullikov watched in pure horror as his friends were overrun by the mass of screaming bodies. No matter how many bullets they put into them, they refused to go down - their fury overriding any feelings of pain.
    The Regulators at the head of the group were the first to fall - quickly overpowered by the seemingly unstoppable enemy. The next to die were the Skirmishers - the great size and limited maneuverability of the dragons made them easy targets for their merciless adversaries. Bullikov helplessly watched as a skirmisher was disemboweled by one of the savages, right before his very eyes.
    Within a few short minutes, the Regulator scouting party of 50 troops (including 10 skirmishers) was cut in half. As the situation rapidly deteriorated, the commander initiated order "abandon all," at which point those who were still alive began to flee and scatter throughout the facilities of TIER-1 in order to escape the pursuing hordes - many becoming killed or lost in the process.
    As the Regulators' numbers began to dwindle, Bullikov made the impulsive decision to run from the fight, grabbing any stray friendlies who were still breathing. By the time he'd finally outrun the crazed hostiles, he had gathered up two other soldiers (Sgt. Tikkanen & Pvt. Carter) and a skirmisher (Deadbolt) along the way. Though small, the unlikely team defied all odds and eventually fought their way out of the hellishly overrun confines of TIER-1.
    When the whole ordeal was over with, the four survivors were nearly all that was left of the Regulator scouting party. The losses were devastating, so much so that the tragedy went down as a documented altercation in the Regulators' official archives. The massacre would come to be known as "TIER-Z."

Battlefield 3 - Russian Medic
I'm a Call of Duty man myself, but there's no denying that Battlefield 3 was a magnificent game. I liked playing as the Russian faction, so I drew their medic.

Regulator Skirmisher V2 - Tier-1 Character Drawing
A Skirmisher soldier enlisted under the Holy Order of the Regulators.
~
Usually placed in squads of (human) Regulator troopers under the command of General Ragma, they were commonly referred to as the "cannon fodder" of the Regulator forces.

Often fought up against RCF (Roaches Coalition Forces) and Tier-1 resistance groups during the Badlands Conflicts (2049 A.D. - 2053 A.D.) Many Skirmishers were slain in combat during this time period; quite a few more being captured and tortured by Tier-1 forces. This was ] mostly due to Tier-1's resentment of anything non-human. 

Almost all traces of the Skirmishers were nearly wiped from existence during the great "Dragon Purge" (2054 A.D. - 2055 A.D.), in which Tier-1 remnants sought to slaughter and exterminate all Draconian species, under Regulator command, from the face of the Earth.

Fallen Angel - 'Tier-Z' Storybook Illustration
In 2049 A.D., Regulator forces were sent in to investigate their neighboring faction after picking up a distress call over a Tier-1 frequency. Upon arrival at Tier-1 HQ, they were shocked to find the various barracks and compounds in ruins - with no signs of life in the area.

After traveling deeper into the facilities, the Regulator forces were ambushed by Tier-1 soldiers. Though strangely, the enemy did not attack in a strategic manner, nor did they carry a single firearm. Instead, they came sprinting and screaming - attacking only with melee weaponry, and some, even with their bare hands. They were all mad; insane, pumped with adrenaline.

They felt no pain, and they showed no mercy to the intruders. They instantly cut down anyone who refused to flee, and most of those who managed to escape were tracked down and mauled to death. As a result, the scouting party of 50 Regulator troops (including five Skirmishers) were diminished to a measly six survivors by the end of the ordeal.

Erika
I got the inspiration to draw this whilst listening to an old German marching song called "Erika": www.youtube.com/watch?v=fc-DgR…

The song is about a soldier, far from home, who is reminded of a beautiful girl by a flower that shares the same name as his lover - Erika.
