I learned a lot after my first mission with Alpha Squad. Though The Redeemers were started by Americans, we are funded by the governments of the world. All the worldís leaders know The Redeemers exist, but the general population is shielded from the terror that is all around them. I wondered, after killing the giant octopus if the incident would hit the newsstands. Steve explained to me that any incident which we are called to action is completely hushed by the governments with help from the Angels. The Angels, being gods themselves, have the power to wipe memories and fix any damage that was done during the attack before anyone can spread the word of what has happened. Before coordinated cover-ups began, there were attacks that didnít get completely wiped from history, though we now view them as tall tales or works of fiction. Stories like Big Foot and Godzilla. It is possible that you have even been attacked or witnessed a Demon attack, but have no memory of it whatsoever. Do you ever feel as if something or someone is missing from your life, but you canít quite put your finger on it? It is possible that the entire existence of someone you once loved is gone forever and youíll never know for sure.
I could spend a tremendous amount of time recounting all of the separate Demons we were called to stop while I was with Alpha Squad. The other squads surely had just as many attacks to thwart as well. It happens very often, all over the globe. Iím not going to do that though, it would take up too much time and I would rather keep your mind at ease in not knowing if something has happened near you. I think itís better to wonder than to know for sure.
I want to get to Her and what happened before I somehow ended up back here in Nevada.
When She appeared, we had just returned from dealing with a Demon in the form of a man in southern Turkey who had gathered human followers and had been attacking military forces in Syria and northern Iraq. It was a very tough fight because, unlike every other attack that had taken place, this one had men firing weapons back at us. JoJo was the only casualty from Alpha Squad, and we were all distraught over her death.
Angels didnít typically come to our bunker. When She appeared in our common area we were surprised, to say the least. They always appear in human form to help protect humanity and keep a watchful eye on populated areas without drawing attention to themselves. She was different. She had the physical appearance of a woman, except for her glowing yellow hair and light blue, almost turquoise skin. She was barefoot and wearing a long white silken dress that seemed to be blowing in nonexistent wind. Her eyes were like fire that I felt could see directly into my soul. Sylpheny was beautiful in every sense of the word, in a way that I've never experienced. As soon as chris saw her he ran to what we called our "bat phone" and called Samuel, who arrived a few minutes later via transporter. She didn't speak at all until Samuel addressed her first.
