In addition, the Chairman had sent mop-up detachments in key-cities to eradicate the surviving Locust.
One of the mop-up crews was Alpha Squad, stationed in Aldair City. Among them is Pendulum Wars hero, Sgt. Gabriel Diaz, who had demoted himself to working in the motor pool. Mere hours before the Hammer Strikes, he receives orders from Chairman Prescott and Major Sid Redburn to retrieve classified intel files from the CIC building. Sgt. Diaz and Major Redburn find the files that reveal information about a Locust scientist named Ukkon, who has been responsible for creating the various creatures the Locust have been using as instruments of war.”
