Ratchet & Clank: The Revenge of the Machine

I do not under any circumstance own any of the Ratchet and Clank characters, locations, etc. The only thing I do own is the plot and the games.

Chapter 1: Prologue

Location: Hotel Room, Metropolis, Kerwan

Date: 3.20.2012

Time: 0000 hours

A lone, cloaked figure stands on the balcony of his hotel room, overlooking the city of Metropolis and watching the remaining groggy citizens return home to get some sleep before the coming dawn. No part of the humanoid figure could be seen except for his glowing red eyes that burned with hate for those of the city. After a few more minutes of watching his unsuspecting victims, the 'man' walks into the hotel room he and one other had rented for the night.

'What is taking him so long?' the man thought to himself as he sat down on one of the beds to imagine the chaos that would occur that day. The man thought about the number of years of research and testing spent on this plan and he compared it to all of the others he designed, 'I can't believe I am using what I absolutely despise as the basis of my idea, have I really sunk that low?'

The man was snapped out of his thoughts when the door to the room opened and shut. "Have all of the packages been delivered?" the man asked without looking at the new comer.

"Of course they were, sir, I made sure of it. They will never know what hit them until it's too late." the robot responded. "There are ten crates of the experiments on each planet as we speak; you need only to say the word and it shall begin."

"Good, then it will begin at dawn!" the man replied. After hearing the response of 'Yes of course sir', the man went back to planning his next move. The only thought that briefly crossed his mind was, 'Let's see how you fair against my new army, Lombax...'

Location: Mayor's Office, Metropolis, Kerwan

Date: 3.20.2012

Time: 0600 hours

A female Cazar walked to her office that morning thinking what every working person does with a sleep-clouded mind: 'Another day, another dollar.' Her name is none other Sasha Phyronix, current mayor of the city of Metropolis. 'I really wish that I just get a break from this job,' she thought to herself as she sat down at her desk, yawning in the process. 'How long has it been since my last day of? Four years? Ten years? Not sure but it feels like it has been an eternity.'

Just as she sits down, she makes note of the peace and quiet the morning brought before the hassle of paperwork kicked into gear. However, Sasha could not shake the feeling that something big was going to go down today. The gut feeling never passed as it normally would, which was when she heard a nearby explosion. At first Sasha thought that it was just someone's engine blowing up. Not even fifteen seconds later, that idea was immediately trashed as citizens screamed in a chorus of mass panic and even more explosions occurred. She sighed and got up to see what the cause of the commotion was. As Sasha gazed out the office window, her look of frustration and confusion quickly changed to one of shock, horror, and fear. What she was witnessing was something that should be happening in an apocalypse movie, what she saw was complete and utter chaos. 'What is going on out there?' she thought to herself.

Suddenly, here secretary barged in shouting that the city was under attack by something. The only thing that she knew she could do after hearing the fear in the woman's voice was that they needed help and fast. Sasha turned with a dark expression plastered on her face to the frightened woman and bluntly said, "I need to make a call."
