Talas adjusts Lady Frost so that she is shielded from
oncoming fire. Then he grabs the last injured person
and moves up to the gate. He then puts Lady Frost down

injured person through. Once done Talas draws this
rail-gun and begins to lay down suppressive fire until
the last person is through the gate.
