The scratching and clawing sounds from inside the shaft of the freight elevator came closer and closer, yet each second seemed like an eternity. The trio had clustered up in a corner of the cantina, anxiously awaiting the arrival of the genetically engineered horrors. Suddenly there was an explosion, quickly followed by horrid screams and metallic screeching. A gust of wind gushed from the elevator entrance, bearing the iron smell of blood and death.
Kiiiph! Stay your guns! For the sake of Amarokh, stay your guns! Help uuus! Heeelp uuuus, Kiiiph!, the deep voice was a baritone quiver in Kiph's head. This close there was psionic feedback and Kiph heard the voice echo itself four times, accompanied by a loud screeching noise.
The first two G'Kraun toppled over the edge, crashing awkwardly onto the floor, a pool of blood quickly forming around them. One of them was shaking intensly and the trio could see that metallic pins had been entrenched in its grey flesh, creating gaping wounds where they had entered. The other one looked less gone, but had nonetheless shrapnel wounds all over.
A couple of more seconds passed and it was during these seconds an eerie song started down below; it was like the singing of whales - so infinitely sad and forlorn. Then the main host of G'Kraun arrived, pouring over their unfortunate brethren like the host of valhalla, ripping and tearing their fallen asunder. Their brutal elimination of fallen comrades shocked Riv and Cormac to the core, for there was no mercy, there was no quarter - The two warriors were simply sliced apart.
A G'Kraun, smaller than the others, turned to Riv. "Huuuumaaaaaan", it hissed, its retracted gums clearly visible. "Huuuumaaaaan, we neeed you to cover our back. Shooot through the wiiiindooows of the cantiiina doooor". Having finished speaking, the G'Kraun joined its brethren in facing the elevator entrance.
Last came a juggernaut of a G'Kraun. It was seven to eight feet tall, standing more erect than its minions. Just like its companions, it's skin was grey and parched. It's head and shoulders were drenched in blood. Furthermore blood vessels were readily visible on the humanoid figure, which crouched as it advanced. Its face was a blasphemic mockery of humanity, the skin around the mouth horribly retracted, displaying sharpened teeth and pale white gums. There was a sense of urgency in its actions and it bolted past its herd, approaching Kiph with tremendous speed, stopping scant inches from Kiph's face.
"Weee are in trouubleee", it hissed, "and so are youuuu". It paused, then looked around the cantina, then at Cormac, Riv and finally Kiph.
"If any of us fall, either human or G'Kraun, if we fall you must kill us. If not, well, the fallen will kill you."
Rising to it's full length it held it's arms out in a crucifix pose.
"Come, hunter, we are ready"
As if in reply the main elevator* started moving.
