I can spin worlds from little more than a blank white space. I can weave realms, races, species, all with my own hands. Time passes at my hands, day and night and everything in between. I can summon gods from the void, and there is nothing they can do to me. I control them. They don't even know I exist. They can't touch me.
I can murder a hero with less effort than it takes you to jump up and down once. They could be instantly slaughtered, in any way I imagine. And I can bring them back, good as new, better than new. However I want them to be.
I can create creatures not of this world, and forge their whole existence like wet clay. Their appearance, behavior, everything is in my hands, up to me.
Everything that happens in this world is solely to amuse me. I create everything only for my own entertainment, and the entertainment of those who watch me.
I am a writer.
Never cross a writer.


I'm reconstructing my lair into a lore clan! It's one of my desperate attempts to appear an 'elite' player :')
Anyhoo if you wanted to read some of my lore I've got an incomplete list of lore dragons in Avernus's bio!

MAN: When I was a kid,
whenever I'd feel small or lonely...
...I'd look up at the stars.
Wondered if there was life
up there.
Turns out I was looking
in the wrong direction.
When alien life entered our world it was
from deep beneath the Pacific Ocean.
A fissure between two tectonic plates.
A portal between dimensions.
The Breach.
I was 15 when the first Kaiju
made land in San Francisco.
(ROARING)
(INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER)
By the time tanks,
jets and missiles took it down...
...six days and 35 miles later...
...three cities...
...were destroyed.
Tens of thousands...
...of lives were lost.
(ALARM WAILING)
(PEOPLE CLAMORING)
(KAIJU ROARS)
We mourned...
...our dead...
...memorialized the attack...
...and moved on.
(PEOPLE CLAMORING
AND KAIJU ROARING)
And then, only six months later...
...the second attack...
...hit Manila.
NEWSCASTER: (ON TV)
The acid factor of the Kaiju blood...
...creates a toxic phenomenon
named Kaiju Blue.
MAN: And then the third one hit Cabo.
And then the fourth.
And then we learned...
...this was not gonna stop.
This was just the beginning.
(ROARS)
We needed...
...a new weapon.
The world came together...
pooling its resources
and throwing aside...
...old rivalries...
...for the sake of the greater good.
To fight monsters...
...we created monsters of our own.
The Jaeger program...
...was born.
There were setbacks at first.
The neural load to interface...
...with a Jaeger proved too much
for a single pilot.
(EKG FLATLINING)
A two-pilot system
was implemented.
Left-hemisphere, right-hemisphere
pilot control.
We started winning.
(CROWD CHEERING)
Jaegers stopping Kaijus
everywhere.
But the Jaegers were only as good
as their pilots.
So Jaeger pilots...
...turned into rock stars.
Danger...
...turned into propaganda.
Kaijus...
...into toys.
We got really good at it.
Winning.
(CAR HORNS HONKING)
Then...
Then it all...
...changed.
(ALARM WAILING)
WOMAN: (OVER PA)
Gipsy Danger report to Bay 08, level A-42.
Kaiju. Code name: Knifehead.
Category 3. 8700 metric tons.
Yo, Yancy, wake up! Movement...
...in the Breach.
- Hey, come on! We're being deployed.
- Great.
- Good morning.
- Morning.
Kaiju's a Category 3, biggest one yet.
Code name: Knifehead.
- What time is it?
- Two.
A.M.?
Yep.
What do you say?
Fifth notch on the belt?
(KNOCK ON DOOR)
MAN 1: Come on, Beckets.
Time for the drop.
Hey, kid.
Yeah?
Don't get cocky.
RALEIGH: Years before...
you wouldn't have picked my
brother Yancy and I for heroes.
No chance.
RALEIGH: All right, let's
suit up and kick some ***!
We were never star athletes.
Never at the head of the class.
But we could hold our own
in a fight.
And it turned out we had...
...a unique skill:
We were Drift compatible.
(TOOLS WHIRRING)
AI: Data on helmet.
Data relay gel
dispersing in circuitry suit.
MAN 2: (OVER RADIO)
Good morning, Becket boys!
- Tendo, what's happening, my man?
- How'd that date with Alison...
go last night, Mr. Choi?
Oh, she loved me.
Her boyfriend? Not so much.
You're gonna get your *** kicked.
Ha, ha. A man's gotta do
what a man's gotta do, brother.
Engage drop, Mr. Choi.
Engaging drop, sir.
Marshal Pentecost on deck.
Securing the Conn Pod.
Getting ready to drop.
TECHNICIAN: Conn Pod door lock secure.
- Release for drop.
RALEIGH: Gipsy Danger...
...ready for the big drop.
- Here we go.
- Yeah!
Here we go!
TENDO: Coupling confirmed, sir.
PENTECOST: Engage pilot-to-pilot protocol.
TENDO: Engaging now.
AI: Pilot to-pilot connection...
protocol sequence.
Gipsy launch, Bay 6.
YANCY: Gipsy Danger...
...ready and aligned, sir.
PENTECOST: Rangers, this is Marshal...
...Stacker Pentecost.
Prepare for neural handshake.
Starting in 15 seconds.
Fourteen...
...thirteen...
...twelve, eleven, ten.
Ready to step into my head, kid?
Please, after you. Age...
...before beauty, old man.
AI: Pilot-to-pilot connection...
protocol sequence.
Neural handshake initiated.
RALEIGH: (IN VOICE-OVER)
The Drift.
Jaeger tech.
Based on DARPA jet fighter
neural systems.
Two pilots, mind-melding
through memories...
...with the body
of a giant machine.
The deeper the bond...
...the better you fight.
TENDO: Neural handshake...
...strong and holding.
YANCY: Right hemisphere is calibrating.
RALEIGH: Left hemisphere...
...calibrating.
AI: Proofed...
...and transmitting.
PENTECOST: Gentlemen, your orders...
...are to hold the miracle mile
off Anchorage. Copy?
YANCY: Copy that, sir.
Sir, there's still a civilian vessel
in the Gulf...
You're protecting a city
of two million people.
You will not risk those lives
for a boat that holds ten.
- Am I clear?
YANCY: Yes...
- ...sir.
- Man, that's cold.
You know what I'm thinking.
I'm in your brain.
- I know.
- Then let's go fishing.
Here we go!
Come on, bro!
Put some muscle to it!
YANCY: Worry about yourself, kiddo!
RALEIGH: (IN VOICE-OVER) There are
things you can't fight, acts of God.
You see a hurricane coming...
you have to get out of the way.
But when you're in a Jaeger, suddenly...
you can fight the hurricane.
You can win.
(MEN SHOUTING INDISTINCTLY)
MERRIT: Get them tied down...
...and go down below! Now!
How far to the mainland?
Seven miles off Anchorage, sir.
But we won't even make it
past the shallows.
McTIGHE: No, we won't!
What about that island
three miles east?
McTIGHE: No! It's two miles, sir.
One mile, sir!
It's getting closer.
1ST OFFICER: How the hell...
...can it be getting closer?
(RADAR BEEPING RAPIDLY)
Kaiju.
(GROWLING)
Harder starboard!
Turn her around!
Now!
(ROARING)
1ST OFFICER: Oh, God!
MAN 1: What the hell?
(MEN SHOUTING INDISTINCTLY)
MAN 2: Hang on!
AI: Ship secure.
- Adjust the torque!
- I'm on it.
Torque locked.
(BOTH GRUNTING)
Get him. Come on.
- Shoot him.
YANCY: I'm on it! I'm on it!
(SCREECHING)
TENDO: Discharge reading, sir.
Plasma cannon in the shallow shelves...
...seven miles off the coastal line.
- Gipsy...
...what the hell is going on?
- Job's done, sir.
Lit it up twice. Bagged our fifth kill.
- You disobeyed a direct order!
YANCY: Respectfully, sir...
...we intercepted a Kaiju...
...and saved everyone...
- ...on that boat.
- Get back to your post. Now!
Yes, sir.
Kaiju signature rising!
That thing's still alive, sir.
Gipsy!
We're still getting a signature!
That Kaiju is still alive!
Grab the boat and get out of there.
You copy?
Grab the boat
and get out of there now!
(BOTH GRUNTING)
YANCY: Take it, Raleigh!
RALEIGH: I got this!
(SCREAMING)
YANCY: Loccent, we're hit!
(COMPUTER BEEPING)
Left arm's...
...gone cold, sir.
RALEIGH: The hull! It
went through the hull!
Raleigh, listen to me!
You need... Aah!
No!
No!
(GRUNTING)
AI: Loading.
(SCREAMS)
Second discharge fried all the comms,
sir. I'm not getting any signals.
No signatures, sir.
What do we do now, sir?
MAN: Now, I want you to keep your eye
on that gauge there.
Now, you know what I'd like to find?
I'd like to find a whole ship.
That's what I'd like to find.
Wait, wait! Wait, wait,
wait, wait, wait! Wait!
Right there, right there! Dig!
Hey, what is it?
It's just an old toy.
We never find anything good.
MAN: Listen.
(BEEPING AND WAVERING)
Oh, my God.
(CREAKING)
(POWERING DOWN)
Stay here!
(PANTING)
Mister?
Can I help?
RALEIGH: Yancy.
Yancy.
Run! Get help, fast!
It's gonna be all right.
(INAUDIBLE DIALOGUE)
MAN: The Kaiju are learning our defenses.
They're adapting. Evolving.
And we're losing Jaegers faster
than we can build them.
Lima.
Seattle.
Vladivostok.
Category 4 Kaijus...
(OVER MONITOR)
...are now coming through the Breach.
I think even you can see,
marshal, this is no longer...
...a sound strategy.
The frequency of the attacks
has increased.
The Jaegers are not the most viable
line of defense anymore.
PENTECOST: I am aware.
Those are my rangers that die...
...every time a Jaeger falls...
...which is why I'm asking you...
...for one last chance.
BRITISH UN REP: Excuse me, marshal.
One final assault
with everything we've got.
The Jaeger program is dead, marshal.
On the other hand, the coastal wall...
program is a promising option.
AMERICAN UN REP: The world appreciates
all that you and your men have done...
...but it's over.
We will authorize you to take
all remaining Jaegers...
...to the last battle statio: Hong Kong.
We're prepared to fund you...
...for the next eight months
while the coastal wall...
...is completed.
After that, you will receive
no further support.
You have your answer, marshal.
TENDO: So that's it?
It's over?
HERC: Suits and ties, flashy smiles.
That's all they are, Stacker.
We don't need them.
(MAN 1 SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY
OVER PA)
FOREMAN: Eight hundred more beams.
Ration cards, guys! Come on, come on!
Let's go!
Now, I got good news and I got
bad news, fellas. Which one...
- ...you wanna hear first?
- Bad news!
FOREMAN: Bad news:
Three guys died yesterday
working the top of the wall.
MAN 2: What's the good news?
FOREMAN: The good news is...
...I got three new job openings.
Top of the wall.
Okay, who wants to work?
Who wants to eat?
Come on!
REPORTER: (ON TV)
I am here in Sydney, where earlier today...
yet another Kaiju attack took place.
The Kaiju, an enormous Category 4...
...broke through the coastal wall...
...in less than an hour.
(ROARING)
The Wall of Life had been deemed
unbreachable by its builders.
MAN 3: Why the hell...
...are we even building this thing?
That thing went through the wall
like it was nothing.
Ironically, it was...
...the recently decommissioned Jaeger,
Striker Eureka...
piloted by Herc...
...and Chuck Hansen that finally...
...took the beast down.
(PEOPLE CLAMORING)
(GROANING THEN ROARS)
(CAR ALARM WAILING)
CHUCK: Look, they decommissioned
the Jaeger program...
...because of mediocre pilots.
It's that simple.
That's Striker Eureka's tenth kill
to date. It's a new record.
And you're still going to Hong Kong,
even at a time like this?
Well, orders are orders.
What else am I supposed to do?
REPORTER: Chuck Hansen,
one of the pilots...
...of Striker Eureka...
...the Jaeger that took down the Kaiju.
PENTECOST: Mr. Becket.
Marshal.
Looking sharp.
Long time.
Five years, four months.
Can I have a word?
RALEIGH: Step into my office, marshal.
PENTECOST: Took me a while to find you.
Anchorage, Sheldon Point, Nome...
RALEIGH: Yeah, a man in my position...
...travels with the wall,
chasing shifts to make a living.
What do you want?
I've spent the last six months activating
everything I can get my hands on.
There's an old Jaeger, a Mark 3.
You may know it. It needs a pilot.
I'm guessing I wasn't your first choice.
You are my first choice.
All the other Mark 3 pilots are dead.
Look...
...I can't have anyone else
in my head again.
I'm done.
I was still connected to my brother
when he died.
I can't go through that again, man,
I'm sorry.
Haven't you heard, Mr. Becket?
The world is coming to an end.
So where would you...
...rather die?
Here, or in a Jaeger?
(PEOPLE CHATTERING)
Mr. Becket...
...this is Mako Mori.
One of our brightest.
Also in charge of the Mark 3
restoration program.
She personally handpicked
your copilot candidates.
(IN JAPANESE)
RALEIGH: Hey.
(IN JAPANESE)
PENTECOST: At ease.
We will tour the facility first...
...and then Miss Mori will show you
to your Jaeger, Mr. Becket.
GOTTLIEB: Wait for us, please!
NEWT: Hold the door...
...please!
GOTTLIEB: - Thank you.
Thank you. Thank you.
Stay back. Kaiju specimens
are extremely rare...
...so look but don't touch, please.
Mr. Becket, this is our research team.
Dr. Gottlieb and Dr. Geiszler.
Oh, no, call me Newt.
Only my mother calls me Doctor.
Hermann, these are human beings.
Why don't you say hello.
I have asked you not to refer to me
by my first name around others.
I am a doctor with over 10 years
of decorated experience...
(IMITATING GOTTLIEB)
Ten years! I'm very sorry.
GOTTLIEB: Oh, please.
...Yamarashi?
Oh, this little Kaiju?
Yeah, you got a good eye.
My brother and I took him down in 2017.
You know he was one of the biggest
Category 3s ever?
He was 2500 tons of awesome.
Or awful. You know,
whatever you wanna call it.
Please excuse him. He's a Kaiju
groupie. He loves them.
Shut up, Hermann, I don't love them,
okay? I study them.
And unlike most people, I wanna see
one alive and up close one day.
RALEIGH: Trust me...
...you don't want to.
So that's your Research Division?
PENTECOST: Things have changed.
We're not an army anymore, Mr. Becket.
We're the resistance.
Welcome to the Shatterdome.
War clock. We reset it after every
Kaiju attack. Keeps everyone focused.
The frequency of attacks
is accelerating.
How long till the next reset?
PENTECOST: A week, if we're lucky.
My experts believe
there'll be a Kaiju attack...
...even before that.
This complex used to lodge...
...30 Jaegers in five bays
just like this one.
Now we only have four Jaegers left.
I didn't know it was this bad.
It is that bad.
Crimson Typhoon, China.
One of the greatest.
Assembled in Changzhou.
Full titanium core, no alloys.
Fifty diesel engines
per muscle strand.
Deadly, precise fighter.
She's piloted by the Wei Tang
brothers. Triplets.
Local lads.
They've successfully defended
Hong Kong port seven times.
They use the Thundercloud formation.
RALEIGH: Hell, yeah. Triple-arm technique.
PENTECOST: Very effective.
That tank, last of the T-90s.
Chemo Alpha.
First generation Mark 1. The heaviest
and oldest Jaeger in the service.
But make no mistake, Mr. Becket,
it's a brutal war machine.
And those two:
Sasha and Aleksis Kaidanovsky.
Yeah, I've heard of them.
Perimeter patrol, Siberian wall.
PENTECOST: On their watch it stayed
unbreached for six years. Six years.
(BARKING)
Herc! Chuck!
Gentlemen, welcome to Hong Kong!
HERC: Wait here.
Max! Come here!
- Remember me?
HERC: - Don't drool...
...over Miss Mori. Sees a pretty girl...
...and he gets all wound up.
PENTECOST: Raleigh, this is Hercules Hansen,
an old friend from the Mark 1 glory days.
I know you, mate.
We rode together before.
We did, sir. Six years ago.
My brother and I.
- It was a three Jaeger team drop.
HERC: That's right. Manila.
Sorry about your brother.
Thank you, sir.
Herc and his son Chuck'll be running
point using Striker Eureka.
Fastest Jaeger...
...in the world.
First and last of the Mark 5s.
Australia decommissioned it
a day before the Sydney attack.
HERC: Yeah, it was lucky we were still around.
PENTECOST: Yep.
- Now it's running point for us.
RALEIGH: Wait, running point on what?
You haven't told me
what I'm doing here yet.
We're going for the Breach, Mr. Becket.
We're gonna strap a 2400 pound
thermonuclear warhead to Striker's back.
Detonate an equivalent of 1.2...
...million tons of TNT.
And you and two other Jaegers...
...will be running defense for them.
RALEIGH: Thought we were the resistance.
Where'd you get something that big?
See the Russians back there?
They can get us anything.
Herc, shall we?
- Good to have you back.
- Thank you, sir.
- I'll show you to your Jaeger now.
- Miss Mori...
...will you give me a minute?
Marshal!
Sir, we've hit the Breach before.
It doesn't work. Nothing goes through.
What's changed?
I've got a plan. I need you ready.
That's all.
Let's go, Herc!
CHUCK: Max, come here!
WOMAN: (OVER PA)
Crew 17...
please report to the fifth floor.
Zero minus two.
XY minus two. R-E-Q...
In the beginning, the Kaiju attacks
were spaced by 24 weeks.
Then twelve, then six,
then every two weeks.
The last one in Sydney was a week.
In four days...
...we could be seeing
a Kaiju every eight hours...
...until they are coming
every four minutes.
Marshal, we should witness a double
event within seven days.
Mr. Gottlieb, I'm to drop a 2400 pound
thermonuclear bomb...
...I need more than...
...a prediction.
NEWT: - Well, uh...
...that's a problem, then...
...because see, he actually can't give
you anything more than a prediction.
No Kaiju entrails over my side
of the room. You know the rules.
- Every bloody day. It's incessant.
- Gents! On point.
Numbers do not lie.
Politics and poetry, promises,
these are lies.
Numbers are as close as we get
to the handwriting of God.
- What?
- Would you give me a moment?
There will be a double event.
And then, shortly thereafter,
three. And then four...
PENTECOST: And then we're dead.
- I get it.
GOTTLIEB: - Alas.
This is where the good news comes.
Here is our universe...
...and here is theirs.
And this is what we call "The Throat,"
the passage between the Breach and us.
We know that it's atomic in nature.
I predict that the increased traffic...
...will force the Breach to stabilize...
...and remain open long enough...
...to get the device through...
...and collapse its structure.
NEWT: Yeah, and that's...
...where I gotta chime in because,
really...
...I wouldn't wanna go in there with
that limited amount of information.
Newton, don't embarrass yourself.
Just hear me out for a second.
Give me a second.
Please.
Why do we judge the Kaiju
on a category system?
It's because each one...
...is completely different
from the next, right?
You see what I'm saying? Like, one looks
like a shark and one looks like a fish...
Dr. Geiszler. Just get to the point.
- Yes.
NEWT: - The point is...
...I don't think they're all
completely different after all.
These are some samples
I collected, all right?
Now, this one here
was harvested in Sydney.
And this was harvested in Manila.
Six years ago.
They have the same exact DNA.
They're clones.
GOTTLIEB: And this is...
...the point where he goes
completely crazy.
NEWT: There's so much more
to the Kaiju than we understand.
And we've really only scratched
the surface.
This is a piece of a Kaiju's brain.
Now, unfortunately, it's damaged.
It's a little bit weak.
But it's still alive. Now, I think...
...I can tap into it...
...using the same technology
that allows the two Jaeger pilots...
...to share a neural bridge.
Now, think about that.
I could tell you exactly...
...how to get through
the Breach yourselves.
You're suggesting that we initiate
a Drift with a Kaiju?
No, no. No, no. Not like a whole Kaiju,
you know, just a tiny piece of its brain.
HERC: The neural surge would be too much...
- ...for the human brain.
- I agree.
- I don't agree.
- Gottlieb...
...I'd like your data on my desk ASAP.
Sir.
- No, but his is so...
PENTECOST: - Thank you, Newt.
Guys, now, this is the most amazing
thing...
Newton, I know that
you're desperate to be right...
...so you've not wasted your life
being a Kaiju groupie...
...but it's not going to work.
It is going to work, Hermann.
And I'll tell you...
...something else.
- Fortune favors the brave, dude.
- You heard them.
They won't give you the equipment
and even if they did...
...you'd kill yourself.
Or I'd be a rock star.
There she is.
(SIGHS)
RALEIGH: Oh, my God.
Look at her.
Gipsy Danger.
God, it's so beautiful.
She looks like new.
MAKO: Better than new.
She has a double-core
nuclear reactor.
She's one of a kind now.
She always was.
TENDO: How do you like
your ride, Becket boy?
Solid iron hull, no alloys.
Forty engine blocks per muscle strand.
Hyper-torque driver for every limb
and a new fluid...
...synapse system.
Come here.
RALEIGH: Tendo. It's
good to see you, buddy.
TENDO: It's good to see you too, brother.
It's just like old times.
RALEIGH: So, what's your story?
Restoring old Jaegers,
showing has-beens like me around.
That can't be it.
You a pilot?
No. Not yet.
But I wanna be one...
...more than anything.
What's your simulator score?
Fifty-one drops, 51 kills.
Wow, that's amazing.
But you're not
one of the candidates tomorrow?
I am not.
The marshal has his reasons.
Yeah, he always does, doesn't he?
But with 51 kills,
I can't imagine what they could be.
I hope you approve of my choices.
I've studied your fighting techniques
and strategy.
Even Alaska.
And what do you think?
I think you're unpredictable.
You have a habit of deviating
from standard combat techniques.
You take risks that endanger
yourself and your crew.
I don't think you're the right man
for this mission.
Wow.
Thank you for your honesty.
You might be right.
But one day, when you're a pilot,
you're gonna see that in combat...
...you make decisions.
And you have to live
with the consequences.
That's what I'm trying to do.
MAKO: The candidates are ready.
We will commence
the trials immediately, sir.
- Good.
- But there is one thing.
Mako, we have talked about this.
We will not be talking about it again.
You promised me.
(IN JAPANESE)
Mako.
Vengeance is like an open wound.
You cannot take that level of emotion
into the Drift.
For my family, I need...

HERC: Raleigh.
Come sit with us.
Oh, I'm okay, thank you.
Ah, come on,
there's plenty of room at our table.
RALEIGH: I haven't seen bread in a while.
Hong Kong.
Beauty of an open port, no rationing.
We've got potatoes, peas,
sweet beans, decent meat loaf.
Pass the potatoes.
Raleigh, this is my son...
...Chuck. He's my copilot now.
He's more my copilot.
Right, Dad?
So you're the guy, eh?
You're the guy who's gonna run defense
for me...
- ...in that old rust bucket of yours?
- That's the plan.
CHUCK: Good.
So when was the last time
you jockeyed, Ray?
About five years ago.
What have you been doing for five years?
Something pretty important, I reckon.
I was in construction.
Oh, wow, that's great.
I mean, that's really useful.
We get into a fight, you can build
our way out of it, eh, Ray?
It's Raleigh.
Whatever.
Look, you're Pentecost's bright idea.
And my old man, he seems to like you.
But it's guys like you who brought
down the Jaeger program. To me...
...you're dead weight.
You slow me down...
...I'm gonna drop you
like a sack of Kaiju ****.
(CLICKS TONGUE)
I'll see you around, Raleigh.
Come on, Max.
You can blame me for that one.
I've raised him on my own.
He's a smart kid, but I never knew
whether to give him a hug...
...or a kick in the ***.
With respect, sir...
...I'm pretty sure which one he needs.

Okay, what?
You don't like them?
I thought you selected them...
...personally.
Excuse me?
Every time a match ends
you make this little gesture...
...like you're critical
of their performance.
It's not their performance,
it's yours. Your gambit.
You could have taken...
...all of them two moves earlier.
You think so?
I know so.
Can we change this up?
How about we give...
...her a shot.
the cadet list we have, ranger.
Only candidates with Drift
compatibility...
Which I have, marshal.
Mako, this is not only
about a neural connection.
It's also about a physical compatibility.
What's the matter, marshal?
Don't think your brightest
can cut it in the ring with me?
Go.
Four strikes marks a win.
Remember, it's about compatibility.
It's a dialogue, not a fight.
But I'm not gonna dial down my moves.
MAKO: Okay.
Then neither will I.
One-zero.
(MAKO GRUNTS)
One-one.
Two-one. Concentrate.
(BOTH GRUNTING)

Me too.
She's my copilot.
PENTECOST: That's not going to work.
Why not?
Because I said so, Mr. Becket.
I made my decision. Report to...
...the Shatterdome in two hours
and find out who your copilot will be.
RALEIGH: Mako.
What was all that about?
I mean...
...I'm not crazy. You felt it, right?
We are Drift compatible.
Thank you for standing up for me.
But there is nothing to talk about.
(DOORKNOB CLICKING)
That's my room.
Excuse me.
RALEIGH: I mean, come on.
I thought you wanted to be a pilot.
Mako...
...this is worth fighting for.
We don't have to just obey him.
It's not obedience, Mr. Becket.
It's respect.
RALEIGH: Would you at least tell me...
...what his problem is?
REPORTER: In the wake...
...of the Sydney incident
which showed the ineffective nature...
...of the Wall of Life program,
many are questioning...
...the government's motives
and wondering why...
...the Jaeger program
has been discontinued.
Riots have erupted
along the coastlines of several...
...Pan Pacific...
...cities.
AMERICAN UN REP: We have now relocated
millions of civilians and supplies...
...300 miles inland
to the safe zones.
WOMAN: Safe zones? For the rich and powerful?
What about the rest of us?
MAN: Yeah, answer the question.
AMERICAN UN REP: I believe the Wall of Life
is still our best option at this time.
And that's all I'm gonna say
on the matter. Thank you.
NEWT: Kaiju/Human...
...Drift experiment, take one.
The, uh...
The brain segment is the frontal lobe.
Um, chances are...
...the segment's far too damaged
to Drift with.
Unscientific aside:
Hermann,
if you're listening to this...
...well, I'm either alive and
I've proven what I've just done works...
...in which case, ha, ha, I won...
...or I'm dead and I'd like you to know
that it's all your fault.
It really is. You know,
you drove me to this.
In which case...

GOTTLIEB: Marshal! Marshal!
I need to talk to you.
PENTECOST: Not now, Mr. Gottlieb.
I'm sure you can appreciate
how important this moment is to me.
Newton created a neural bridge from
garbage and Drifted with a Kaiju.
I found him prone...
...and he's sort of dazed.
I don't exactly know what to do.
I told you it would work.
Yes, you did.
Well, what'd you see?
It was only a fragment of a brain, so
really all I was able to get was, like...
...a series of, uh, images...
...or impressions.
Like when you blink your eyes over and
over and over again all you really see...
...are, like, frames. It was emotion.
Newton, Newton.
Okay, Newton. Newton, look at me.
Now I want you to take your time
and be very specific.
Okay. Okay.
Well, I don't feel like they're just
following some sort of animalistic urge...
...you know, just hunting and gathering.
And I think they're attacking us
under orders.
That's impossible.
- Is that impossible?
- It's impossible.
Why don't you...
...Drift with a Kaiju?
You! Shut up!
You, keep talking.
These beings, these masters,
they're colonists.
They overtake worlds.
They just consume them...
...and then they move on to the next.
And they've been here before
in sort of a trial run.
It was the dinosaurs.
But the atmosphere
wasn't conducive, right?
So they waited it out.
And they waited it out.
And now with ozone depletion,
and carbon monoxide, polluted waters...
...well, we've practically
terraformed it for them.
Because now they're coming back,
and it's perfect.
See, the first wave,
that was just the hounds.
Categories 1 through 4,
it was nothing.
Their sole purpose was to aim
for the populated areas...
...and to take out the vermin: Us!
The second wave,
that is the exterminators.
And they will finish the job. And then...
...the new tenants...
...will take possession.
See, the reason that I found the identical
DNA in the two separate Kaiju organs...
...is because they are grown!
Newton, I need you to do it again.
I need more information.
I can't do it again.
I mean, not unless you have
a fresh Kaiju brain...
...lying around.
Do you?
Pretty impressive.
Yeah, he remembers how to turn it on.
Oi, show some respect.
When his brother died, he got
the Jaeger back to shore on his own.
I've known one other pilot
that's been able to do that.
Now, there are certain individuals
whose business is the preservation...
...and exploitation of Kaiju remains.
Uh, yeah, right, um,
black market dealers, right?
Yep. They're in and out
in a matter of hours.
They neutralize the acidic factor
of the blood...
...and they harvest what they need.
Now, this guy, this is Hannibal Chau.
He runs the Kaiju black market...
...here in Asia.
When our funding ran out...
...we turned to him for help
and in return...
...I gave him exclusive rights
to all Kaiju remains in the region.
You did that?
Last days of war, gentlemen.
Go to the corner of Fong...

I'm looking...

Come.
You want Chau, huh?
Good luck.
(TOOLS WHIRRING)
Oh, my God! Oh, my God,
this place is heaven!
That's a lymph gland from a Category 2!
And what are you working on here?
Is this a cuticle? In mint condition?
Is that a Kaiju skin parasite?
I've never seen them alive before!
They usually die
as soon as the Kaiju falls!
- I thought you couldn't keep them alive!
MAN 2: - You can if you soak them in ammonia.
What do you want?
I'm looking for Hannibal Chau.
I was told...
...he was here.
Who wants to know?
I really can't say.
(YELLING)
Stacker Pentecost sent me!
(GROANING)
Oh, that's great. That's real great.
So I take it you're Hannibal Chau, right?
You like the name? I took it...

...and my second-favorite
Szechuan restaurant in Brooklyn.
Now tell me what you want...
...before I gut you like a pig
and feed you to the skin louse.
CHUCK: She can't control...
- ...her Drift, and he went out of phase first!
PENTECOST: - We all know what happened.
CHUCK: We can't afford mistakes. The Kaiju
keep evolving, they keep kicking our *****!
He's a has-been, she's a rookie.
I don't want them protecting
my bomb run, sir.
PENTECOST: You need to watch
your tone, Mr. Hansen.
Hey, stay there.
Give me a moment.
You two are a goddamn disgrace.
You're gonna get us all killed,
and here's the thing, Raleigh:
I want to come back
from this mission...
...because I quite like my life.
So why don't you just do us all
a favor and disappear?
It's the only thing you're good at.
Stop! Now!
Yeah, that's right.
You just hold back
your little girlfriend.
One of you ******* needs a leash.
RALEIGH: Apologize to her.
CHUCK: Screw you.
(GROANING)
RALEIGH: I said apologize to her.
HERC: Hey, hey! Enough!
What's going on?
On your feet, both of you!
Becket...
...Mori, into my office.
CHUCK: No, we aren't finished!
This is over!
You're a ranger, for chrissake.
Why don't you start acting...
...like one?
RALEIGH: I went out of phase first.
- It was my mistake.
- No.
It was my mistake.
I should have never let you two
in the same machine.
RALEIGH: So, what...
...you're grounding us?
Not you.
Permission to be dismissed, sir.
Permission granted, Miss Mori.
Mako.
Sir, what are you doing?
She is the strongest candidate by far.
What other options do we have?
Huh? Tell me!
Do not let my calm demeanor fool you...
...ranger!
Now is not a good moment...
...for your insubordination!
Mako is too inexperienced to rein in
her memories during combat.
That's not why...
...you grounded her.
I was in her memories.
I saw everything.
I don't care what you think you saw.
(KAIJU ROARING AND THUMPING)
(WHIMPERING)

I know what she means to you. I saw it!
Hey! Hey!

You rescued her.
You raised her.
You're not protecting her now.
You are holding her back.
One:
Don't you ever touch me again.
Two:
Don't you ever touch me again.
Now, you have no idea who the hell
I am or where I've come from...
...and I'm not about to tell you
my whole life story.
All I need to be to you
and everybody on this dome...
...is a fixed point.
The last man standing.
I do not need your sympathy
or your admiration.
All I need is your compliance
and your fighting skills.
And if I can't get that...
...then you can go back to the wall
that I found you crawling on.
Do I make myself clear?
Yes, sir.
Good.
(PEOPLE CHATTERING)

RALEIGH: I'm sorry.
I should've warned you.
First Drifts are rough.
But you weren't just tapping

...you were tapping into my brother's...
...too.
When Yancy was taken,
we were still connected.
I felt his fear, his pain,
his helplessness...
...and then...
...he was gone.
I felt it. I know.
You know, you live in someone else's
head for so long...
...the hardest part to deal with
is the silence.
To let someone else in,
to really connect...
...you have to trust them.
And today the Drift was strong.

And what do you believe?
Well...
...I believe that Kaiju bone powder
is 500 bucks a pound.
- What do you want?
- I need to access...
...a Kaiju brain. Completely intact.
No, no. The skull plate is so dense
that by the time you drill into it...
The brain's rotted away.
But I'm talking...
...about the secondary brain.
Now we both know
that the Kaiju are so large...
...they need two brains to move
around, like a dinosaur.
I want to get my hands on that.
Mm. What the hell do you want
a secondary brain for, anyway?
I mean, every part of the Kaiju sells.
Cartilage, spleen, liver.
Even the crap!
One cubic meter of crap
has enough phosphorous in it...
...to fertilize a whole field!
But the brain...
Too much ammonia.
So, what's the deal, little fella?
Well, that's classified.
So I couldn't tell you.
Even if I wanted to.
- Mm.
- But it is pretty cool.
Sol might tell you.
I'm gonna tell you.
I figured out how to Drift

Are you funning me, son?

You?
(BOTH CHUCKLE)
- Go to Dr. Geiszler now!
- Yes, sir!
I want the two remaining Jaegers back
to 100 percent functionality.
Yes, sir!
HANNIBAL: We're gonna harvest...
...the skin, the talons and the wing.
Germans are gonna go nuts
for that stuff.
Let me see that map.
Here is where the Kaiju fell, here's
where we concentrate our efforts.
- We'll get it, boss.
- Right.
NEWT: Hey!
Okay.
Guess who's back,
you one-eyed *****?
And you owe me a Kaiju brain.
(CROWD CHEERING)
HERC: Raleigh!
My kid'd never admit it...
...but he's grateful.
We both are.
(DOOR OPENS)
PENTECOST: Mr. Becket!
Miss Mori!
In all of my years fighting...
...I've never...
...seen anything like that.
Well done.
Proud of you.
Proud of us all.
But...
...as harsh as it sounds...
...there is no time to celebrate.
We lost two crews.
No time to grieve.
Reset that clock.
(ALL MURMURING)
Reset the clock.
(CHATTERING)
(CHITTERING)
I still can't believe what you did to
me. I mean, I could have been eaten.
Well, that was definitely the plan.
Lucky for you, that didn't
become necessary, huh?
Thank you so much, you're so kind.
I really appreciate all of this.
But now do you mind telling me
exactly what is taking so long...
...for your
workers to get that brain?
Well, they pump the cavity
full of CO2...
...just like in any other
laparoscopic surgery.
NEWT: Okay, yes, obviously.
The CO2's gonna delay
the acidic reaction, yes.
And it allows us to harvest.
But our boys need oxygen
pumped into their suits.
They move slow.
What's going on in there, boys?
MAN: We've reach...
...the upper pelvic area. Unh.
Moving to the 25th vertebra.
****.
Even through the suit, boss,
it smells like dead catfish in here.
Boss.
The secondary brain...
- ...is damage.
- Aw.
- It's ruin.
- *****!
How could they screw that up?
Wait. Wait.
What was that?
Did he say "wait"? Why wait?
Do you hear that?
It's like a heartbeat.
Oh, my God. Oh, my God, this can't be.
Hold on a second.
Hey! Let me have that!
Shh, shh! Listen, listen!
Listen to this.
(RHYTHMIC BEATING OVER RADIO)
It's pregnant.
(RUSTLING)
(SCREAMING)
(SCREECHING)
(ALL CLAMORING)
(NEWT GRUNTING)
(ROARING)
NEWT: No, no! Please.
(PEOPLE CHATTERING)
HANNIBAL: I knew it.
- Unh.
Gone.
His lungs weren't fully formed.
Umbilical cord tied around his neck.
No way he could survive outside
the womb for more than a minute.
One look, that's all I needed.
I knew he wouldn't make it.
(GRUNTS)
(NEWT GRUNTS)
(SIGHS)
Ugly little *******.
Anyway, I would...
(ROARING)
(NEWT WHIMPERING)
(PANTING)
(COUGHING)
How sick are you?
And why didn't you tell me?
Uh...
What's to tell?
You know, them Mark 1s, we scraped
them bad boys together in 14 months.
Last thing we were thinking about
was radiation shielding.
I ran nearly a dozen missions.
I stayed under the medical radar
for a while...
...but the last time I jockeyed
was in Tokyo.
I finished the fight solo...
...but for three hours...
...I burned.
They warned me if I ever stepped foot...
...into a Jaeger again,
the toll would be too much.
You and I are the only two
that ever ran solo combat.
That's why I brought you here.
(COMPUTER BEEPING)
- What is it?
- Sir, it's happening.
I just got two signatures with
unprecedented dilation, 40-meter spikes.
What category?
Checking the ratios, Category 4.
Where're they headed?
That's the thing, they're not heading
anywhere. They're hovering...
...just above the Breach.
It's like they're protecting it...
- ...or something.
- All right, Gipsy, Striker on deck.
Sir, Herc cannot ride. His arm...
You heard me.
Two signatures. Two?
There are two Kaiju signatures in
the Breach, not three like I predicted!
Hermann! I haven't exactly
had a very good day, okay?
I got about 5 minutes...
Should be three Kaijus.
...before brain death occurs here!
I don't wanna spend it talking...
- ...about your theories!
- This is all wrong!
There should be three Kaijus
coming through, not two!
There should be three and there's two?
I'm sorry, it hurts to be wrong.
I am not wrong, but there is something
here we don't understand.
Hopefully we can argue about
any mistakes you made...
...in your predictive model in the future!
But in the meantime, the neural interface...
...is way off the charts!
If you want to help, help with that!
GOTTLIEB: Newton, I am not wrong.
There is only one way
to make sure...
...and that is to do this...
...together.
I'll go with you.
That's what the Jaeger pilots do,
share the neural load.
You're serious?
You would do that for me?
Or you would do that with me?
Well, with worldwide destruction
a certain alternative...
...do I really have a choice?
Then say it with me, my man:
"We're gonna own...
...this bad boy!"
By Jove, we are going to own
this thing for sure!
(NEWT LAUGHS)
CHUCK: Oi, Tendo. Tendo!
You're not suited up.
Yeah, I'm aware of that, Elvis.
I need to know what's going on.
He said suit up, so suit up.
Tendo, I can't pilot Striker
on my own, now, can I?
Dad's hurt,
so who's gonna be my copilot?
(DOOR OPENS)
I don't remember it being so tight.
Getting back into that Jaeger
will kill you.
Not getting into one would kill us all.
Listen...
...you are a brave girl.
I'm so lucky to have seen you grow.
But if I'm going to do this...
...I need you to protect me.
Can you do that?
Right.
Everyone...
...listen up!
Today...
...today...
...at the edge of our hope...
...at the end of our time...
...we have chosen not only to believe
in ourselves, but in each other.
Today there's not...
...a man nor woman in here
that shall stand alone.
Not today.
Today we face the monsters
that are at our door...
...and bring the fight to them!
Today we are canceling the apocalypse!
(ALL CHEERING)
CHUCK: Hey, marshal!
You know, that was a great speech...
...but how exactly are you and I
supposed to match up...
...in there?
I carry nothing into the Drift.
No memories, no fear.
No rank.
And as for you...
...well, you're easy.
You're an egotistical jerk...
...with daddy issues.
A simple puzzle I solved on day one.
(MAX BARKS)
But you are your father's son...
...so we'll Drift just fine.
Works for me.
Hey, now.
When you Drift with someone...
you feel like there's nothing
to talk about.
I just don't want to regret...
- ...all the things that I never said out loud.
- Don't.
(SIGHS)
You don't need to.
I know them all.
I always have.
(MAX BARKS)
Hey. Hey, handsome.
(MAX WHINES)
Oh, I'm gonna miss you.
You look after him for me.
HERC: Stacker.
That's my son you got there.
My son.
You know, Mako, all those years
I spent living in the past...
...I never really thought
about the future.
Until now.
I never did have very good timing.
(INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER)
You ready for this?
- Oh, yes, yes.
- Initiating neural handshake in five...
...four...
...three...
...two...
...one.
(GRUNTING)
(INDISTINCT OVERLAPPING VOICES)
(GRUNTING)
(NEWT COUGHS)
Are you okay?
Yes, of course.
I'm completely fine.
(RETCHING)
(VOMITS)
- The Drift. You saw it?
- Yeah.
- Did you?
- Listen, we have to warn them.
The Jaegers... The Breach... The plan...
It's not going to work.
TENDO: Disengaging transport.
CHUCK: Loccent, all ports sealed.
Ready to submerge.
RALEIGH: All ports sealed.
Ready to submerge.
MAN: Both neural handshakes at 100 percent.
Neural handshake confirmed, sir.
Two actives still in circle formation
in the Guam quadrant.
Code names: Scunner, Raiju.
Both Category 4.
PENTECOST: Roger that.
Half a mile to the ocean cliff...
...we jump!
It's 3000 meters to the Breach.
Half a mile? I can't even see...
...a damn inch ahead!
How are we supposed
to deliver the bomb?
Visibility's zero.
Switching to instruments now.
MAN: Sir!
HERC: Gipsy, you have movement on your right.
Three o'clock! Three o'clock!
AI: 100-feet radius...
- ...clear.
RALEIGH: - Right flank's clear.
I got nothing.
Left now! And moving fast!
Fastest Kaiju on record!
(KAIJU SQUAWKS)
I don't see anything.
It's moving too fast!
CHUCK: Eyes on the prize, Gipsy.
600 meters from the drop.
400 meters and closing.
Bogeys are stopping.
HERC: Striker! Bogeys are stopping.
One o'clock.
CHUCK: Marshal, what are you doing?
They're stopping.
- Why the hell are they stopping?
- I don't give a damn, sir!
We're 300 meters from the jump!
- Something's not right!
HERC: Striker...
...the bogeys aren't following.
Take the leap now.
NEWT: Don't do it! Don't do it!
It's not gonna work!
Move, you fascist! Blowing up
the Breach, it's not gonna work!
PENTECOST: What do you mean?
What's not gonna work?
Just because the Breach is open does not
mean you're able to get a bomb through.
GOTTLIEB: The Breach
genetically reads the Kaiju...
...like a barcode at the supermarket
and then lets them pass.
You're gonna have to fool the Breach into
thinking that you have the same code!
- And how are we supposed to do that?
NEWT: - By making it think...
...you are a Kaiju.
You have to lock onto the Kaiju,
ride it into the Breach.
The Throat will then read...
...the Kaiju's genetic code...
- ...and let you pass.
NEWT: - If you don't do it...
...the bomb will deflect off the Breach...
...like it always has...
...and the mission will fail.
All right.
Now that you've heard all that,
Striker, take the leap!
Sir! I have a third signature...
...emerging from the Breach!
HERC: - Third signature...
...emerging from the Breach.
It's a triple event.
Oh, God, I was right.
How big is it?
- What category?
- Category 5.
Striker...
...it's a Category 5.
The first ever.
(GROWLING)
(ROARING)
RALEIGH: Striker, we see him.
We're right behind you...
...about 100 meters.
We're gonna come around
your 3 o'clock, try to flank him.
Standard two-team formation.
Just keep him busy for a few...
(KAIJU SCREECHING)
Brace for impact!
AI: Chain sword...
...deployed.
(RALEIGH YELLING)
RALEIGH: Let's get this son of a *****!
(SCREECHING)
PENTECOST: Gipsy, coming up...
...on your 12 o'clock!
Full speed!
Get out of the way!
(GRUNTING)
CHUCK: The release is jammed!
We can't deliver...
...the payload, sir!
We're still armed.
But the hull is compromised!
Half our systems are offline, sir.
We need to override the...
(ROARING)
(BOTH GRUNTING)
Both Kaijus...
...converging on Striker fast!
(COMPUTER BEEPING)
RALEIGH: Hang on, Striker!
- We 're coming to you!
PENTECOST: - No!
Gipsy! Do not come to our aid!
Do you copy?
RALEIGH: Hang on!
PENTECOST: Stay as far back as you can!
We can still reach you.
We're coming for you.
No, Raleigh, listen to me.
You know exactly what you have to do!
Gipsy is nuclear!
Take her to the Breach!
I hear you, sir.
Heading for the Breach.
AI: Structural damage...
- Now.
- ...eighty percent.
- Unh.
PENTECOST: Mako.
Listen.
You can finish this.
I'll always be here for you.
You can always find me in the Drift.
We're a walking...
...nuclear reactor.
We can destroy the Breach.
(GROWLING)
(SCREECHING)
CHUCK: What can we do, sir?
We can clear a path!
For the lady!
They're gonna detonate the payload.
CHUCK: Well, my father always said:
If you have the shot, you take it!
So let's do this!
It was a pleasure, sir.
(ALARM WAILING)
(SPEAKING IN JAPANESE)
AI: All systems critical. Fluid loss.
Systems are critical!
Fuel is leaking!
Our right leg's crippled!
Code red.
- Let's finish this.
- All systems critical.
What are they doing?
Finishing the mission.
RALEIGH: Loccent. We have...
...the Kaiju carcass.
We're heading for the Breach.
You guys better be right.
Because one way or another...
...we 're getting this thing done.
(ROARING)
On my count, rear jets!
Three...
...two...
...one.
Now!
(SCREECHES)
Hold on.
(SCREECHING)
Mako's oxygen is down. Half capacity!
- Can you reroute it?
- I'm trying, sir.
RALEIGH: Hold on, Mako.
AI: Heat shaft purge.
RALEIGH: I'm gonna burn...
...this son of a *****.
(GROANING AND SCREECHING)
They're in.
- They're in!
- It worked.
AI: Oxygen main...
...left hemisphere, critical levels.
Operating at...
...fifteen percent capacity.
Ten percent capacity.
Five percent.
He's giving her his oxygen.
(GASPING)
It's okay now, Mako.
We did it.
I can finish this alone.
All I have to do is fall.
Anyone can fall.
TENDO: Raleigh...
...your oxygen levels...
...are critical now.
You don't have much time.
Start the core meltdown and
get out of there. Do you hear me?
Get out of there now!
One pod is ejected. No detonation, sir.
RALEIGH: Loccent, if you
can still hear me...
...I'm initiating...
...reactor override now.
(BEEPING)
AI: Manual activation...
...required.
What's going on?
Trigger's offline!
He has to do it by hand.
He's out of time.
He has to self-destruct now.
Manual activation required.
RALEIGH: No!
(YELLS)
Manual override initiated.
Core meltdown in T-minus 60.
AI: Reactor meltdown in 55 seconds.
Fifty seconds.
(CHITTERING)
Evac pod engaged.
Five...
...four, three...
...two, one.
Reactor meltdown.
Direct hit! The Breach has collapsed!
(ALL CHEERING AND APPLAUDING)
To the choppers! To the choppers now!
Visuals on first pod.
Tracking solid. Vital signs are good.
Okay, where's the second pod?
I'm tracking it,
but I'm getting no vital signs.
MAKO: I can't find his pulse.
I don't think he's breathing.
Can you read his pulse?
Does he have a pulse?
MAKO: Raleigh?
TENDO: Mako, listen to me.
It could be the sensors are networking.
We can't be sure.
(SOBBING) No.
No. Don't go.
- Please.
- Mako.
Don't go.
Mako.
MAKO: No.
Don't go. Please.
RALEIGH: (IN STRAINED VOICE)
You're squeezing me too tight.
(RALEIGH COUGHS)
(IN NORMAL VOICE)
I couldn't breathe.
(LAUGHS)
(ALL CHEERING AND APPLAUDING)
This is Marshal Hercules Hansen.
The Breach is sealed.
Stop the clock!
(ALL CHEERING)
(BARKING)
TENDO: Mako, Raleigh.
We have your position.
The choppers are on their way.
Just hang on.
(HELICOPTERS WHIRRING)
Are you okay?
Do you copy?
Uh, guys?
(PEOPLE CHATTERING)
(HELICOPTER WHIRRING)

Where is my goddamn shoe?
