[Fireteam leaders: Do not advance on the Wall. Fall back to the Ridgeback District.] Shaxx freezes with a Vandal's windpipe in his fist. He waits for Saladin to justify the strategy. [I repeat: All teams rally at the Ridgeback District. Do NOT advance. The City is lost.] Shaxx drops the Vandal, then empties the rest of his clip into a Captain. He and his fireteam are running on fumes. The dead, Fallen and Guardian alike, litter the Twilight Gap. [Shaxx! Do you copy?] He risks a look over his shoulder at their home, the place they call the Last Safe City. Not burning. Not yet. Gritting his teeth, he reloads. [Shaxx, your orders are to retreat.] He sees a gap in the onslaught of invaders and gestures to the others. "Nkechi! Take Abdi and Truce. Liu Feng, with me! Bray! Cover us!" [This battlefield is not your stage, Shaxx! This is not about glory!] His fireteam doesn't hesitate. [Shaxx! For the final time: Fall! Back!] As the six of them crest the Wall, Shaxx cuts the feed.
