In Yulitat of 2024, eighty hizaki led battalions comprised of marixi, departed the continent to assess life between the poles. Meanwhile, under the ice of Ramaxia, bizaki busied themselves with subglacial exploration, the breeding castes established social harmony. Fusofitakil and her hizaki, along with Femitokon and her most trusted marixi, were forced to the surface to contend with the arrival of humans from North America.
On Yulitat 22, shortly after the marixi purge, two warships and a private cruise vessel arrived off the southwestern coast of the Ramax’takal (ram-acks | tack-all) Range. Anticipating their arrival, Femitokon and Fusofitakil formulated a plan to rid their land of helovx once and for all, despite having sent their best on other missions (Balrusok assisted the bizaki along the Artery, while Potax and Kaxital accompanied the explorers between the poles).
Femitokon chose her best swimmer, Zixkul, to traverse the Ramax’takal Sea with a team of divers; their mission was to board the cruise vessel and sabotage its mechanical propulsion system. The brutal Boszag was ordered to take eighteen other marixi and capture one of the warships off the coast.
On land, two miles east of Concordia, Dagitat and crew of marixi spotted four jets surveying the tundra. As one hurled past their position. bizak Dizukel noticed that the fliers operated with a single helovx pilot. Using her zaxir lover, Galiyusok, Dagitat tricked one of the jets into making a landing. Upon landing, the pilot emerged to tend to what he thought was an human survivor on the ice; as he stepped from the plane, Dagitat burst out of the snow and broke his neck. Finding the craft idling, Dizukel got inside and located its firing mechanism. The blast she fired excited Dagitat. Overcome, she pulled Dizukel from the cockpit and strapped herself into the pilot seat. Gaining control, Dagitat took to the air, and after a series of clumsy maneuvers, gained control of the flier and blasted off toward the coast.
Fusofitakil accompanied Femitokon and her battalion moving west when manned jets appeared on the horizon. Flying past, they turned around and began to fire, but the whiteout conditions protected the femmar. Suddenly, the jet piloted by Dagitat arrived and confronted the two fighters, destroying them. When a third attacked and struck Dagitat’s wing, the thirteen-year-old marixi steered about and slammed her flier into the attacking jet, destroying them both.
Incited by Dagitat’s death, Femitokon and her battalion ran for the coast. Boszag and her unit had seized the command center of the first warship, and upon seeing Femitokon and her troops on the beach, used the ship’s offensive programming to attack the other warship. Boszag then scuttled the cruiser by setting off a charge in its hull.
Meanwhile, the private boat filled with the United States’ political elite, attempted to flee the area and found their ship crippled. Investigating the problem, they found their lower decks overrun with marixi. After Zixkul took control of the Cruiser, she brought it to the coast so that Fusofitakil and Femitokon could board.
Killing all of the men, Femitokon allowed the women of the vessel to survive. Ordering them to leave southern waters and never return, Femitokon and Fusofitakil allowed one of the survivors to record a message with her handheld device: Femitokon declared in English, “Humanity must never return to the poles, the ice hates you as much as we do,” but Fusofitakil remained diplomatic: “Ramaxicon is our world now. Your species is dying. Go peacefully.”
