The greatest source of the power to the people of the Industrial Republic was a revelutionary geothermal reactor core simply known as RC1, located deap in the inner mantle of the earth. Hard to get to, harder to destory, and even harder to replace. Tephra was sent to take RC1 out, but that was not a simple task. Tephra got close only to be zapped with their sonic cannons. The experience was so intense that she spent much of her time recovering the the billowing clouds of the atmosphere. When she did get the courage to go after it again, she had to start from scratch. Her tales are long and many, and she had seen a great deal before she finally met RC1 again, and finally one. The only thing the optical sensors picked up of her, is a streak of blue across the screen.
