There's something about Valkyr that is both terrifying and beautiful. Maybe it's the way she split those Grineer in half with her claws, maybe it's the way she flat ignores cover and bullets with equal care, but nothing seems to stop her.

I end up playing the rear guard as I look for some form of way to repair my Foundry. I duck to inspect a terminal, and that's when Vakyr sails over my shoulders and lands heavily in a pile of crates behind me.

The pile explodes out in all directions, and I look up at the thing that had managed to blow her away.

"Tenno skum!" a huge Grineer roars, massive hammer in its hands, covered entirely in armor.

I take aim, drawing my rifle, but I hardly have time to act before the hammer slams into me side. The hammer is mostly ablated by my shields, but I bounce a few times before slamming into a wall of stone, shaking my head.

Steam hisses from the armor as he holds his hammer high. "And I will strike down upon you with great vengeance and furious anger! " he says, closing in on Valkyr.

"Valkyr!" I get up, drawing my dagger and trying to close the distance. Maybe it's too late. I run, crouching into a slide, then catch my feet onto a pipe - the forward momentum carrying into my upper body as I am carried forward anyway. Then I push off the ground with my feet, and rocket forward, dagger-first - my dagger bouncing harmlessly from his neck and out of my hand.

"What?"

The blow stops his swing as he laughs and Valkyr escapes, running beside me. She is silent, then looks at my blank arm.

I raise my empty left hand, pointing at Valkyr.

My arm is wreathed in slender gold plate, turning a soft white as Valkyr turns to me, watching as the arm becomes graceful, slender. Instead of her bulky restraint, I see a smooth white wrist. Instead of her claws, I see a hand, encased in smooth, flexible metal.

"I..." Valkyr is shaking, "I don't understand..." I manage, trying to calm her, "Usually it..."

A hook slams into my chest, throwing me away as Valkyr buckles down, claws of green power emerging from her hands.

Wh-what...

A primal roar emerges from Valkyr, who pounces the armor, slamming claws into his back - steam hissing out loudly as he struggles to grab her.

He gets a hold of her after several punctures in the pack, throwing her to the ground.

I move as fast as I can, standing over Valkyr and holding out the hand.

And the moment the hammer touches my palm, it stops, instantly. I feel something flowing in my arm, as Krill roars, and tries to hammer me again. And again I catch it, stopping it - and the power is overflowing, massive, twisting and great.

I reach out, nervously, and touch the hot steel encasing his skull. Suddenly, the impact of both his swings is meted to that helm, all at once in a single blow. There is a sound of wrenching, squealing metal, a scream of agony as his head - helmet and all - is impacted into his body by about four inches.

I can feel spinal disks cracking as they're crushed, bracing metal snapping and digging into his jaw, his arms and legs going limp and the hammer falling to the ground as he keeps screaming in agony.

Valkyr looks down at him, rising as she picks up the hammer. With one blow, she breaks the pack on his back. With another, she smashes the helmet flat.

She stares at me, growls, then dashes off.

I check the body, stacking up components beside it - I can't carry all this and operate well. Canisters of orange and blue, credit stacks (about a thousand?) and a blueprint for a... Cronus? Whatever that is.

I move on after Valkyr, through the tunnels, tubes, and various buildings the Grineer have made. Bodies lay everywhere, and when I find her, she is kneeling on a pile, covered in blood. Her body is slick with it, and it drips off her hands and elbows and her chest as she leans down. You've never seen a Tenno tired before.

"Never. Enough." she manages, pounding the pile with a metal fist.

This area looks promising.

Wrenching open containers still doesn't get me what I need, but there's more components to stack near Krill.

"Never enough what?"

"Bodies. Death. Kills." she says, rising. "Never enough..." she launches off into another hallway, with such speed that it shifts the pile she was standing on.

I decide to finish up the terminals...

Ah.

Aha!

An old Foundry liset segment is here. In this facility. It was marked as salvage and set up for research. I mark the locale in my map, then get off of it and look up - to see the red ship fly into space above me.

"Valkyr?" I attempt to call, but she has blocked communication. Hmn. "Oh well. Might as well get what... oh."

I leap into the nest, flipping over and onto the Segment. It's small, with a handle. I need to use the Lato instead of either of my other weapons, but I should be...

There's a deep, throaty howl, long and low. It ripples through me, making me shake.

Kubrows. Something in the back of my mind tells me I've made a terrible mistake as every hole births a Kubrow, dozens of them.

"Oh."

I flee. The roaring, barking, and howling mass behind me gives eager chase as I flip my way head over heels.

I attempt to contact my liset, only to hear a new voice.

"Oh, it's skeleman." it's high pitched, soft, and slightly annoyed. "Mister box says I can't have anything to eat, skeleman."

I flip over a fence, seeing the circular landing pad shrouded in orange smoke. Yes! "And you can interface with me?"

"Yup! Whatever that means!"

The liset looms up, entry pad facing me.

I scoop up the materials, tossing them into the slot for collection, and get in, sighing a relief as a claw is severed by the rotation of the entrypad. The smooth, white hand reverts.

I set aside my weapons for now, retrieving some food for the girl and tossing it to her as I step onto the bridge. She eats happily with her one hand, munching sloppily.

"You feel well?" you end up asking.

"Better." she swallows. "Not so scary anymore, except for skeleman, and skeleman's nice. Not like rectangleman."

"Excuse me? I have been nothing but p-p-p-p... kind to her! I was merely preventing damages to the ship!"

"You were loud."

"Y-you didn't li-listen!"

She tosses the core of the thing she was eating into the mini airlock and watches it float into the vastness of space.

"Is this segment viable?"

"Yes! I-install it!"

I walk over to the remains of the old Foundry and plug the Segment in - and it rebuilds itself. Three constructor arms, a small glass environ, a holographic display, it's excellent. "This is a very old version of the Foundry. It works with the Mod Station to install modifications into the core of the weapon." the liset states, "It is more powerful, but takes longer for mods to be useful, as installation and uninstalling both take time."

"We can also scan the food here and replicate it, assuming we can gain some polymers, protiens, and scrubbers."

"So." I turn to the girl. She looks up, expectant. "I think you can be of use to me, via the scanners. I need someone to help direct me, warn me about incoming hostiles. Maybe even assist with hacking. Can you do that?"

"...I can try." she admits, "But I'm not perfect."

"Yes, well... Neither is anyone here."
