Leader of the Tiberium Military
View attachment 913453The war-fueled Commandant of War;
Kotlinsky, the Commandant
Well, it looks like he wasn’t the only one here who was wondering about such… taking a glance towards the strangely clothed man nearby with the strange speech pattern. Honestly, he was moreso expecting no one else (so far that hasn’t gone into the portal) to merely disregard such a thing, and continue on in a mindless ‘heroic’ bliss in order to save the entire universe… a responsibility that requires far more than merely having bravery and strength to face a threat, especially if these foes are Eldritch abominations… ones that may be unknown by even him. But it looks like one other individual had the mind to question things before mindlessly charging into the portal, even if it needed Kotlinsky to place the most logical thought into the conversation. Hmph, if these are the type of people he may have to lead, then he will have hard times ahead if they couldn’t adapt to it.
And now, came the answer from the old man. And what came out of his mouth… was… less than satisfactory. At the very least, his first question of why these ‘Gods’ haven’t made the attempt at returning to the fray in order to combat such a threat, their descendants missing from the fray, and not being able to rely on even the divine for safety. As if he would even pray to those in the first place, if the only one he knew, which was his ‘Creator’ lying dormant within his original home was an example of such a thing, he much rather stay as far as possible from the path of the divine than to fall into madness and fanaticalism serving under them. But, the rest of the answer did not tell him everything, the Old individual having to leave in order to distract these Cthulhu, but he did note the relating to the high chance of them being noticed. It’s to be expected, after all, they were going against his awakening, and surely, he would have notice them sooner or later within their ‘Journey’. But trust alone can be a fickle thing, and he still had his suspicions upon the matter.
No matter, it appears his apprentice, Nadia, will be providing him with the information he requires. And after seeing the same man from earlier who agreed with him, struggle a bit of whether or not to leave home or to enter the portal before eventually going with the latter, he then turned to face the apprentice that had acknowledged him. Hmm, well, no wonder the man was acting as such, too dramatic for his own good. But the possible idea did interest him, and when asked about aiding them in their efforts, as much as he would like to see them struggle in a attempt at fighting against a threat that is far beyond their mortal understanding and fight beasts that would make even the most sane of men claw at their eyes in terror of such a sight, he had a goal, and that’s to fight.
“I will aid in your efforts the very Eldritch threat that threatens the entire universe… although, do expect me to take charge as the leading officer for the group. A mind capable of tactics as well as both not only knowledge of fighting the Eldritch beasts and their cultists, but even fighting a Eldritch God myself with but only three others, it’s best if I provide my aid in the matter in the form of commanding. I do, only hope that those… ‘reckless’ individuals are capable of listening to a few commands that prove vital to our efforts.”
And with those words, he had entered the portal-
Being the last one to exit the portal, as like his own entrance to the inn, he was the last to experience what was occurring around him. It was… cold, not the uncomfortable kind, but a familiar kind of cold. Reminds him of the times he fought upon the battlefield during the winter months. Thankfully, both his own naturally resilience to such weather along with wearing a coat himself had staved off the feeling of cold of his body. Although, he did went and retrieved a torch nearby from the rack (as well as non-verbally rejecting the coat handed out to him), he went ahead and stored it within his inventory, for safe keeping if need be. He already had a couple other torches within it, but an extra wouldn’t hurt. Taking a glance around as well as his… ‘allies’, he may as well perform a speech in order to increase their moral. After all, a happy ‘soldier’ is a competent one than a sad one. And he certainly didn’t want to resort to executing a few ‘hopeless’ individuals and use fear instead of hope as a morale tool. Giving a small ahem, the man said out loud in a commanding voice
He waited a couple of seconds to see the faces that may have turned towards him, expecting something from the Commandant who had spoken out loud for others to hear. From there, the Officer placed his arms behind his back, beginning to move back and forth between two imaginary points on the ground, and had continued with.
“My name is Kotlinsky… Commandant of the Iron Battalion of the Germanic forces from my home world. And I’ve come to you all with something that we all share in common…. we all can from differing backgrounds and worlds, having experiences that some others here would have never thought of before. Maybe you were a valiant soldier back in the forces of your home nation’s military back home, having fought in a thousand battles and many more to come, lending your aid in order to support your very nation and people in their time of need. Perhaps you may have been a bounty hunter, going after the greatest of bounties in order to cleanse the world of what is evil and wrong. Perhaps you may have been a magician… talented in the arts of the arcane and the unknown. But we all share something, and that is what we are fighting for.”
Stopping for a second, and looking around once more for reactions, wondering how have his words been affecting them so far, and continued with.
“We are fighting for the very fate of the Universe itself. No matter how different we may be, all of our end goals result in making sure the very universe itself doesn’t get consumed by this Eldritch God and it’s abominations. I have experience with fighting such a threat along with others, and I feel all of you will learn to do the same as well. But that’s only if we can work together to fight as one united force within our darkest hours. I am not saying that you must get along with everyone, but I expect teamwork and a sense of aiding each other when the time calls for it. I won’t deny, many of us will be surprised by what lies for us ahead, some of us, haven’t even heard of what an ‘Eldritch’ creature is. But worry not, with my experience fighting against such creatures in my past, as well as my leading words and knowledge of tactics as a Officer who had lead many successful battles and soldiers in the wars I have participated within in the past… we will be able to fight this threat! I only ask for your cooperation as well as hope, hope to beat such a threat no matter what, in return… and with it, we will defeat this ‘Cthulhu’, we will defeat it and it’s foolish cultist, and we will defend the very worlds that rely on us from the clutches of its hands!”
The Commandant finished, now awaiting the response from the very individuals around him. Ugh, saying those words and essentially lying to them instead of saying the ugly truth was… sickening to him, but he would much rather deal with this now than having the very group itself fight amongst themselves as if they were mere animals. Hope is a powerful tool after all, say some convincing words and make sure to intend that goal… and you got yourself an loyal army that will follow you to hell and back.

Cthulhu-Chan chuckled “you really think it would be that simple to defeat a Cthulhu?” Her voice still sounding as if she was gurgling water while trying to speak. She shook her head in disappointment “this guy seems really confident, but confidence is mostly foolishness anyway” she smiled to herself as she thought about the situation and looked at the guy who was the last one through the portal
