Episode 2 - Metal Back 
1: You want access to UNM data?
2: I suppose it's possible, up to a point...
3: But not about war deaths, Lisa...
4: You sure there isn't anything you can do?
5: Just watch...
1: Here, I'll try gaining special access into the UNM control logs,
2: then pull up the list of UNM casualties.
3: Access denied. "You're loud enough to wake the dead."
5: See how strict it is?!
6: This is just a rumor, but...
1: Apparently the reason the UNM isn't making the war deaths public is because of the Metal Backs.
4: Perle! You're still awake?
5: But it's my turn to sleep with you today, Lisa! I've been waiting forever!
1: Hey, Lisa, tell me another story about your papa!
2: In the official reports, all of the Metal Backs have been declared dead.
3: I bet you were surprised when you read my war death report.
4: The department I was in specialized in important secret military operations.
5: That's why the reports had to be sent out like that.
6: Technically, it's also against policy for me to send you an e-mail like this. But the war should be over soon.
7: I'll be back at the home in no time. You don't need to worry, Lisa. Just wait for me a little bit longer.
1: /Papa... please don't tell me a Metal Back got to you...
2: /Why else... would you still be missing?
1: One is in a state of near-death from a Metal Back assault... but we can probably save him.
2: Please sign this as proof that I brought in the two Metal Backs alive.
3: His heart's stopped! Hurry!!
4: Savrai Silver from the Blade Members... confirmed... OK!
1: /Lisa Lithgow...
3: There's... something I want to ask you.
1: Is this an interrogation?
2: No... it's just... you're the only Metal Back I know by name.
3: It's a personal question. About Metal Backs.
4: Well then... I refuse.
3: Don't move!
4: Unless you wanna see her head pop off!
2: You revived him without locking his suit first?!
3: Hee hee hee... a typical amateur mistake!
4: Savrai Silver, one of the Blade Members' most trustworthy bounty hunters... when I saw you, I thought it was the end of the line...
5: Looks like I still had a little luck left, though!
6: Now, I wanna make a deal! If you want to save this girl, then take off your suit!
1: Idiot... you really think he'll go for a deal like that?
2: Hee hee hee... why don't you see for yourself?
1: There! Now let her go!
2: So he's going to get the murder of a police officer added to his record, eh? Heh... I really caught a big fish this time!
4: Hee... hee hee hee!
5: I guess you're nicer than the rumors make you out to be!
6: Are you really the same Metal Back who murdered one of his allies?
1: Go on, take her!!
1: Pull in your chin and grit your teeth!
2: Withstand the Gs!!
1: Cut off their heads... or crush them.
2: That's the only way to kill people... who have metal plates in their backs.
1: That's what it means to be a Metal Back...
2: That's the only answer I have for you.
1: Why did you save me?!
1: [Metal Backs are superhuman beings designed for war...
2: [The nickname was given to them after the war, after some of them began lashing out against society, and others began hunting their former allies...
1: [Every time the name is spoken, it's pronounced with fear and trepidation toward the uncertain future that their existence brings.
METAL BACK Description
In the early 21st century, a war broke out while the threat of nuclear weapons was still rampant. In order to prevent more casualties as well as raise the battle capabilities of soldiers up to that of a tank's, a special new type of battle armor was designed. In order to wear these suits, however, a special metal plate needed to be embedded in a soldier's back. This was named the "Metal Back System."
This is the standard Metal Back combat suit, built with a focus on destructive capabilities. Artificial muscle in the suit allow for easy equipping of heavy weaponry, which leads to staggering destructive capabilities and increased mobility. 97% of all Metal Backs wear these type of suits.
Metal Back PC (Power Commando) Type Combat Suit
Metal Back suits envelop the soldiers' bodies in six layers of muscles, creating a semi-bio-sphere that protects them from all outer toxins and radiation.
Metal Back HS (High Speed) Type Combat Suit
When the PC suits were being developed, it was discovered that certain soldiers had the capability to rise beyond the estimated enhanced speed limit that the artificial muscles in the suits could provide. This special suit was designed to accommodate those soldiers, and allows them to move two times as fast as soldiers in PC suits. Since their armor is lightweight, however, it's very brittle.
Metal Back HS Type (Savrai Silver-Special)
This MB suit was installed with a special hyper mode specifically for Savrai Silver by R. Gullickson, a Metal Back technician. Hyper Mode opens stabilizers on the head and shoulders and releases wing-shaped radiators in order to alleviate the muscular stress that the enhanced mode causes. Hyper Mode increases Savrai's speed by 50% (three times that of a PC suit) and raises his strength to almost the same level as a PC suit.
