The hero faces their inner demons, and the cosmic horrors in their line of work. No one will know if they succeed, because it'll be brushed under the rug by the higher ups. If they fail, no one will know because there will be another contingency, another layer of action, and there will be an 'incident' and still no one will know, there will just be lots more dead bodies.
The horrors come, they fight.
Some go mad.
The monsters keep coming.
They win the battle, they retreat, they escape, sometimes they don't.
It doesn't matter, the people that the PCs likely work for are monsters all the same. The PCs are expendable, they are liabilities, they are written off and left to die, left to rot in sanitariums, given field retirements (suicide missions to take them off the dossier).
The plan to retire to Fiji, Belize, New Themyscira (Good luck getting there, that's like trying to move to Israel)
That plan isn't going to happen. It's a tattered photograph left in a bunk or footlocker.
