* BEGIN MISSION REPORT *
Upon receipt of the assignment from command, the team and I proceeded at all due haste to the identified location of the H.Y.D.R.A. incursion. Landing the QuinJet 1/4 mile away in a clearing, we approached the building. I took the lead, Sacha behind me to my left. Dr. Hu followed the road into the complex.
As I came upon the side of the building, I noted a single H.Y.D.R.A. agent, dressed in green, guarding the door. His back to me, he did not see me to raise the alarm right away.
I continued to the door, which is when the H.Y.D.R.A. agent turned and noted my presence. As I opened the door, he bolted away, deeper into the building. As Sacha and I entered the building, she shouted, “Federal agents! Stop where you are!” The H.Y.D.R.A. agent didn’t acknowledge, and I gave chase for several seconds, and realized I wouldn’t catch him, so I stopped and stepped to the side. Immediately after I did, a shot rang out from Sacha’s service weapon, and immediately, the H.Y.D.R.A. agent stopped and fell. The steel double doors on the far side from where he went down I closed ferrokinetically, to prevent his egress. Dr. Hu entered and proceeded to triage the H.Y.D.R.A. agent on the floor, when I felt something odd in the air. I immediately stated, “DOWN,” into the subvocal earpiece, and got as close to the ground as I could. Dr. Hu was sadly not fast enough, but the weapon that flew at him appeared to do no damage. I immediately threw a smoke grenade to offer my team more cover, which also offered more cover to the person (persons?) throwing the knife. A male voice spoke up, to my left and behind me, asking, “Do you see them, sister?” A female voice replied, “I see them, brother,” from my left and in front of me. I knew as I entered the room that there were several display cases containing antiquities, and their approximate distances from me. I did not visually note any other entities present in the room when I entered it. Moments later, they stepped out of hiding, showing themselves to be the Von Strucker twins, Andrea and Andreas. I signaled Dr. Hu to use the radio and alert HQ to the presence of the twins, and closed quickly on Andrea. I heard Sasha step behind me and approach Andreas, though I was too focused on Andrea to keep track of where Dr. Hu was. The H.Y.D.R.A. agent that was shot was incapacitated and bound, and was not a threat.
Andrea observed my approach, and as I was made aware of the twins’ dossier on the flight over, I quickly swung my sword, striking her and drawing blood. I heard Sacha attack Andreas, but again, I was focused on Andrea.
A short while into our melee, Andreas vaulted over Sacha, landing in direct contact with his sister, which allowed them to amplify their powers exponentially. A beam came from one of them which destroyed the contents of the room, along with part of the far wall, and all of our weapons and gear, to include their own clothing and weapons. It appeared that anything not alive was destroyed, and we had no cover. I resorted to hand-to-hand combat, striking Andrea repeatedly. While we were engaged with her, Dr. Hu used a weapon that had somehow survived the beam weapon to attack Andreas, and was apparently successful, as I heard a howl of pain from Andreas. Not one to brook distraction, I continued focusing on Andrea, aided by Sacha, and successfully subdued her.
When Andrea fell, her brother was noted to be angry, yelling something in a language I’m not familiar with. He was using his beam weapon to attack Dr. Hu, while Sacha and I attempted to subdue him with throws and punches. Before we were successful, Andreas seemed to abandon all concern for his safety and ran past us towards the now-gaping hole in the wall opposite. This is when I noted that Dr. Hu was down, and I ran past him to ensure that Andreas did not get away. I managed to hit Andreas in the legs, taking them out from under him and driving him into the ground. He was momentarily stunned, but rallied and took a swing at me seconds later. With the advantage, I struck him soundly in the chest, which pushed him into unconsciousness.
All H.Y.D.R.A. agents subdued, and the scene secured, I sent Agent I began to process the scene for evidence. Under the unconscious form of Andrea, I discovered a silvery pool of metal, which I lifted ferokinetically from the floor. I also discovered under what appeared to be ash a small pool of bronze and a black material. I lifted these ferokinetically as well, and continued my search. Not entirely sure what either one was at the moment, I wanted to ensure that they did not go unremarked or get left behind. During my processing, I also found a large crystalline structure, seemingly undamaged from the twins’ energy beam. Once the scene was processed, I contacted local law enforcement, telling them only what they needed to know.
Returning to the HeliCarrier, I reported the presence of all unknown substance, and the dagger Dr. Hu had discovered and used at the scene. We were given orders to secure the items and send them to The Fridge.
