Amos Rakes Fischer 
Killhouse - Piraeus
The Killhouse is a training facility located adjacent to the firing range that only allows the use of specific paint, rubber, or frangible rounds. The four exterior walls of the tall single-story structure are made from cinderblock and concrete, but the interior is a combination of sand-filled wallboard mounted on rollers with sandbags to hold them in place. The interior is entirely customizable for whatever the instructors or Marines need. Overhead is a series of catwalks for instructors and others to observe and critique what is happening down below.

From outside the killhouse it's impossible to see just how the interior has been layed out, but the gear on offer for the pair going through this afternoon appears to be a standard loadout with no frills. As they kit up Amos ensures his own PPE is correct, it looks remarkably like theirs mind, just with added white stripes around his helmet and arms to mark him out as an instructor. "When you're ready Gentlemen," he says, then gestures towards the door, "you're on patrol on Picon, you've just heard a noise with in that building, and fleet command say they can't get air support to you for at least an hour due to other engagements. Good luck."

The best way for a marine to show they aren't wet behind the ears is through practical exercise, and that means Corporal Rakes is attending some close-quarters training with the rest of those already aboard. It makes her new life tough, aboard a battlestar, but she appears readily confident. There's the mark of a smile brightening her expression as she finishes slipping hands into gloves and reaches for the small remainders of her protective equipment. The JTAC glances to her current partner-in-crime and then shrugs, index finger playing with the selector switch on her carbine. "Unknown building, unknown occupants- who wants to run point?"

Stepping over to the Killhouse and getting his gear, Fischer nods a little as he hears the instructions. Looking over towards Rakes, he nods a bit, "Did you volunteer there?" he offers along with a grin, before he glances towards the door. "I'll do it?" he offers, after a few moments of pause.

As and when the marines enter the lights are dim, but not so much as to severely limit visibility. The killhouse is mocked up to resemble rich civilian residence. A long hallway stretches out before them, with doorways on both sides at irregular intervals. Behind the first, located on their right and just after a small table, there are distinct mechanical sounds.

"Something like that, yeah," she pauses with a brief look away, hesitating, "Wait a tic… this is not a lady's first kind of sortie is it?" Rakes extends a hand in gesturing for Fischer to tackle the Killhouse first but she does step into place right behind him, to properly support the marine. Once through the front door, she begins to step opposite Fischer but it's a hallway and she's abruptly stopping, pausing, and sweeping her rifle back forward. Its barrel moves with her eyes. Her boots slow, whispering, "Possible contact right?"

Fischer steps inside first, frowning momentarily as he looks around. Taking a few seconds to prepare his eyes to the dimmer lights, he starts moving forward a bit slowly, before he comes to a stop as well. Glancing over at the door, then glancing to Rakes, he nods at her words, his own reply a quiet whisper. "Sounds like it." Since it's the first door along the way, he moves in that direction, slowly and trying to keep as quiet as possible.

Intermittent mechanical sounds continue from behind the door, and then more from along the corridor and behind another door.

"I like that," is the next murmur from Rakes. It's all bitter sarcasm before she quiets altogether as Fischer steps forward. She rolls her eyes in a quick scan of the long hallway, taking note of the far off doorway in the background, and then focusing on the closer one. Bring in more support. That's a thing they should do. But this is training, and that means paying closer attention and pressing in closer to Fischer. She places a hand at his shoulder and her barrel rests above that, carefully held, and her ready to breach the room on his move.

There's a brief pause at the sounds from further down, and Fischer turns to look in that direction very briefly, before he focuses on the door they are near. Nodding a bit as he sees that Rakes is ready as well, he nods, and gets ready to open the door, making sure to stay as much behind cover as still possible as he gets the door open.

Inside the room is a mess, tables are over turned, chairs tossed this way and that, books throw about and then, in the far corner, there's a centurion. Well, a marine from 1/8th with a red torch strapped to her head and a silver jacket to play the part at least. There's a faint scrapping of the door against a pile of rubbish and she starts to turn.

Rakes glances once more before the door opens, making sure that nothing is coming out of the far door just yet and ruining their surprise. Fischer pushes at the door and something inside provides resistance, but she gets to ignore that in favor of swinging outwards and wanting to get into the room and behind some of that cover. She's about to yell that there's contact but her firearm is preparing to drown out her voice either way.

Looking inside, Fischer moves towards cover right away as well. Firing off a burst towards the target, while making sure to duck behind something.

Rubber bullets fly back and forth briefly before the Centurion wobbles briefly as her legs are hit, then launches herself forward in a banzai charge at Fischer

The first thing that catches Rakes' attention is an overturned table. So she heads there, taking the path of least resistance — straight lines for the win — and sliding into place on a knee. The table itself stops her momentum and the adrenaline keeps her mind off of any residual pain, just a breathless gasp and then she's gritting her teeth. The Centurion is still up. The Human-Cylon Prop is beginning to charg- "Watch it!" She opens fire again, because she has the ammo.

Managing to duck behind another of the tables, Fischer lets out a brief breath, while bringing his rifle up into position as well, ready to fire before he ducks back into cover.

In the grand scheme of things, this is something exhilarating. It's building up a sweat. Demi Rakes is enjoying the familiar feel of adrenaline coursing through the veins. She's calling out that the room is clear and turning after her sweep to see that Fischer is mock downed. She jogs over to the door and peeks out before turning back and pushing her carbine to the rear on its sling. "Look at you, taking all the attention off of little me. I might just owe you a drink sooner than later you keep this up. Just no dying yet, yeah?" She flashes a quick grin, having to then simulate removing armor to properly pack and stuff imaginary wounds. For the instructors' sake, she verbalizes it all.

Getting hit a few times, Fischer slumps a little. "Next room… you go first," he remarks, before he offers a brief grin. "And no dying is a good thing. Absolutely." Which is why they train like this, yes?

High up on a gantry above Amos is making notes, quietly. What's less quiet is the noises from down the hallway, although for now at least they don't seem to be getting closer.

Rakes looks over her shoulder again at the doorway. She then looks down at Fischer. "Only because you asked nicely," she offers in good-natured teasing. The JTAC eases back up into standing and then offers a hand to help him up, should he need it for whatever reason, before she reloads her weapon. She steps up to the door, waits, and then turns to the right back into the hallway. "No dying." That rifle is trained on the entrance.

Fischer nods as he gets to his feet, offering a brief grin. Getting to his feet, he moves over to the door as well, preparing to follow this time. Rifle ready to fire as soon as it's needed.

Thunk. Smash. Wurrrrr. Two doors down on the right.

Rakes frowns. There's definite contact up ahead. However, they have yet to move and that means picking and choosing which door to enter. She lingers in place and then starts with the nearest first. It's empty. That's quickly apparent. So is the next one. The two of them can verify those easily enough. That leaves one more. Rakes stops at the door and then takes a half-step back. She places her back to the wall and wordlessly gestures to his hand grenades. A single finger is held up before she points at her eyes, the door, and then the number two comes up and it's back to pointing at his grenade prop and the door. Then she inches to the door.

Fischer looks a bit relieved as he sees the empty rooms in between. As they reach the ones where there's the sounds coming from, and the gesture to the hand grenades, he lowers his rifle, taking out one of the grenades and getting it ready now. Nodding a little.

As Rakes peeks into the room it's clear that this one is in the process of being search, or torn apart too. There's a centurion/marine with his back to them by a mocked up chest of draws, and just the faintest hint of movement at the edge of her peripheral vision along the wall to her left.

Rakes inhales and then knits her eyebrows together, debating. Whatever crosses her mind is quick because she steadies her rifle across her chest with her offhand's forearm and readies a prop-nade as well. She nods to Fischer with being all for tossing them at an angle into the room at their targets. She doesn't even notice herself mouthing a countdown from three. Once it hits, she looses the explosive.

Fischer nods as he sees the countdown, and gets the grenade ready. As it's sent towards the visible Centurion, he ducks back a bit again, readying his rifle very quickly.

With one centurion now covered fromt eh head down in paint, the other, who's merely splattered turns to face the colonials. There's a rather human sounded 'fraking hell' from under the visor and then the LMG is brought to bear on the pair at the door.

The grenades go out and she pushes to the opposite side of the door, giving them plenty enough room to maneuver. That's where she then hunkers down for the incoming explosion. It splats. She has her rifle ready. The selector switches past semiautomatic and she aims into the entranceway to clear what all still remains, if anything.

In a similar way, Fischer switches over to the full auto after the boom, moving into position to fire that full salvo at the enemy remaining within, while still trying to stay a bit behind the doorframe.

While more of the bullets hammer into walls than targets the final centurion does eventually go down under Fischer's fire. The room momentarilly falls silent. Well, almost silent, there's faint rustle, followed by a muffled sneeze from teh por guy covered in the remains of a paint greanade, but other than that, nothing.

Rakes angles her rifle around the corner and tries to minimize herself simultaneously, resulting in her rounds doing nothing more than providing an ounce of suppressive and concussive fire. She, in turn, is struck by a stray round across the side of the neck and almost instantly shies away from the doorway cursing and clamping a hand there. She'll recover, easily, but it's not the least bit fun to be shot in the neck either. Eyes closed and holding her throat, she steps forward, "I'm okay. I'm okay. Did we get them? It's quiet." She opens her right eye and then left, blinks, and then refocuses on the goings on around them.

Fischer manages to get back out of the way. A brief pause as he hears Rakes. "Looks like we got them, yes." A brief pause, before he adds, "We should probably check the other rooms too, just to be sure," he offers, starting to move towards one of the remaining doors.

Rakes shakes her head and then body. Her fingers flex and then reclaim her dangling rifle, making it easier to actually help clear the room with one opponent drenched. She sheepishly apologizes before turning to Fischer, nodding. She steps more fully into the hallway. "And I'd be radioing this in to higher, but yeah. Let's double back on everything."

Fischer nods a bit as he hears that. "Good job," he offers, with a grin, before he moves to do his part on checking the rest of the rooms.

With the action over Amos carefully makes his way along the upper gantries and down to the entrance of the killhouse to await the exiting marines.

"Can only do as well as everyone around me, so I figure I can blame you for all the success. I'm just support." Except Rakes lacks any of her radio equipment at the moment. She has a trusty rifle at least and that seems to have done the trick; explosives, too. That has her in a bright mood by the time they are exiting the killhouse. She's removed her helmet in the process and it rests tucked under the arm Eye protection is pushed up into her hair and she has pulled out temporary plugs from her ears, too. They rest on a small cord around her neck. She brings up a hand in small, quiet greeting to Captain Ommanney.

Fischer removes his helmet as they get out of the killhouse as well, offering another grin. "Thanks," he remarks, before he looks to the Captain as he sees the man waiting there.

Amos finishes up a couple of notes on his clipboard as the pair exit, then returns their greetings with faint nods. "Well done, not a bad run. We'll debrief back onboard at 1800. Untill then, unless you have any questions, dismissed."

Rakes teeters casually along on the soles of her feet, listening. Residual adrenaline. She eventually stops moving, instead nodding sharply at the words given. "Yes, sir." Nice and simple, she keeps her response. She doesn't happen to have any particular questions so looks almost expectantly to Fischer. Just in case he has anything.

"Yes, sir," Fischer replies, as he hears the Captain's words. No questions from him at this moment. They might come up when the debrief is, after he has gotten some time to think it through.
