The Wild Dance is a celebration of your animal roots. The human tongue is banned on this sacred day. Instead you dance with your tribe throughout the day and long into the night.
Just as dawn was breaking, the celebration at the Cat Tribes outpost at the ski lodge was broken by the whir of machinery and warning shouts. Drones flew into the outpost like mechanical wasps, floodlights darting about wildly before settling on Venus 03.
The drones swooped in and demanded that Venus go willingly. She found Mars 13 in the crowd, met her eyes and then turned to the Watchers. Venus picked up a stone and hurled it at one of the drones, shouting, "Damn you! You'll never take me alive! Long live the Resistance!"
Mars rushed to her aid, but she was the only one. The rest of the tribe stood by, knowing the consequences. Quickly, Mars and Venus were incapacitated.
Someone dragged Mars to her den, a cave hidden in the mountain nearby. When she awoke and returned to the outpost, Venus was gone and the only one who would speak to her was Ringo 18. Ringo told her that he could help her fight back against the Watchers.
Ringo led Mars out of the cat outpost. A few hours into their trek, they were surprised by a land shark. The beast erupted from the ground at Mars' feet, attacking viciously.
Thankfully, Johnny 05, Jupiter 24 and Orwell 84 arrived in the company of Wildpaw. The group dispatched the beast handily after Johnny 05 leapt into battle, biting the shark and injecting it with his venom. Before moving on, Mars skinned the creature, giving the fin to Johnny 05 and constructing a suit of shark-skin armor for herself.
It was then that they finished their journey, arriving at an abandoned contraption that the humans once called a helicopter. Wildpaw led them inside and introduced them all to her uncle and leader of the Resistance, Truffaut 13.
Two other animals were later escorted in by Ringo while Truffaut welcomed them to the Resistance and gave them their first mission: stealing a strange, ancient weapon from Gagarin 11, a scavenger in the dog tribe. This weapon, an EMP rifle, could prove to be fantastically useful to the Resistance.
