It was the beginning of the summer period on Fer'esti Prime, a time of celebrations. This was the period in which new recruits awere drafted into the Imperial Navy, when all the young boys and girls would board the ships and fight for their Emperor in the sky, to bring honor to their planet. A time for a lot of festivities to be held to support the youth of community. It was the season of harvest and the crops could then be taken onboard the ships at the same time as the young warriors. And of course there was a lot of food and drinks to fuel the festivities in the towns of Marak.
The planet was a great agri-world, the most fertile in the sector, proud to be the main supplier of food to the Imperial Navy, food that will bring strength to those fighting for the freedom that they enjoy on Fer'astem System.
Lamnar walked over his land in quiet contemplation, thinking about the glorious departure of his son to the Imperial Navy. What an honor that a member of his family could serve the holy Emperor. His son, Thomas, spent hours cleaning his lasgun and uniform, so he would be in a perfect condition to board one of the mighty ships of his Holiness.
In the distance he spotted movement, instinctively he reached for his gun to counter the possible attack of a Fer'il beast, a one meter high predator that roams the region. It probably had taken down a farm animal, he though, something that every farmer on Fer'esti Prime had to deal with. The beasts were more of an inconvenience then a threat since they were rather slow and afraid of loud noises. That was the reason Lamnar carried a shotgun instead of a lasgun.
But as he approached, he was not sure of what he was seeing, the beast in front of him was literally dismembering something which did not belong to the Lamnar's animals. As he got closer his grip tightens on his gun, as he started to realize that it was a human that was being dismembered. What was this beast, he had never seen such a thing in his life, even the colors where not those of an animal of Fer'esti Prime. The green skin and the yellowish carapace on the back seemed surreal, it rather resembled a huge Brily bug then anything, just 10 times bigger.
He suddenly realized that he was in danger, and his heart started beating furiously The beast turned to him, like if he had heard the heart beating and stared at him with his cold eyes. Lamnar now saw that other beast were exiting the woods not 500 meters from him, all the same colors but different in appearance and size. He knew that something was terribly wrong, and he said his prayers to the Emperor.
Toratina was starting to get worried, it was very late and Lamnar never came late. In addition the robishas, the main meat income of the farm, where still out on the fields, which was very unusual. Maybe he just had a little problem with his truck again, she was thinking , trying to calm herself down. She stood there staring into the dark from the kitchen window, thinking about her husband, when she suddenly noticed a weird green animal running in the yard...

++ Message for Lord Captain Paulus from the Imperial class Battleship Faithful Fury ++
Sir I would like to report the loss of contact to the second largest continent of Fer'esti Prime, Marak, in the Fer'astem System. It is a main supplier of food to the Navy in this sector, so reporting this incident seemed important to me. A contingent was sent down to investigate this matter, lead by Lord Commissar Augustus. We await details on the progress of this mission in less then a month. Will get back to you as soon as we have any further information.
Tolerance is a weakness and must be eradicated.
