He was overzealous with his job and insane. He takes the laws of the mall as absolute and will incarcerate anyone who commits even minor offenses.
Eventually he turned them into zombies as the ultimate punishment, and turns them into his minions.
But problem was they were mindless and hardly really dangerous.
He eventually died when he attempted to breed Xenomorphs as his new solders.
Revan and his Organization Keyblade cleaned the infestation he caused but resulted in have to destroying the mall, which was abandoned for the night at the time. Only Rankle was the real causality there.
But Rankle's legacy of madness doesn't end there.
In reality, Rankle was just one of a secret corps of militaristic mall cops.
They call themselves the U.S. Mall Cop Corps, they believed their service is equivalent to those of that in the Army and take their work seriously just as Rankle was.
When his death reached their ears, they sent a replacement.
The mall was rebuilt under the direction of Professor Membrane who took the chance to implement his ideas in making the mall of tomorrow.
The new mall, the Membrane Memorial Mall, (yes they usually put memorial when someone died but he put it there anyway cause he can ), was a Smart Mall.
Cashiers were automated, robot sentries guard the mall, indoor carts and monorails transport patrons easily to Long distance places In the mall.
Jobs for humans were mostly maintance for the machines, encouraging the hiring of intellectuals or skilled people.
A mall cop would be obsolete, as the robot security guards would be more efficient. However the Corps pulled strings and somehow convinced Membrane to allow their operative to be hired, to man the mall control room and observe and give orders to the robot workers at mall.
Had Slab was still alive he would have loved the upgrades of the mall. But that honor now was to his replacement Captain Jar Rorke. With him he brought three subordinates, Private Chet, Corporal Joe, and Lieutenant Skinner, Rorke's right hand man.
Like Rankle, Rorke also ruled his malls with martial law, and punished even minor offenders.
And like Rankle, he turns the offenders into Zombies. But unlike Rankle, Rorke's Zombies were perfected, superior, and more dangerous.
With Membrane's Mall at his command he also reprogrammed Membrane's robot security guards and gave them military upgrades.
The public didn't notice at first the changes Rorke implement, at first it seemed business as usual.
Xixon and Zera came to the mall one day, they like everyone else loved the changes and upgrades of the mall, having a feel of the alien malls they were used before coming to Earth.
Revan was with them carrying their shopping bags feeling like a pack mule.
Xixon who was walking in front of him giggled. "Hehe feeling a little burdened baby? Need a little help?"
Zera chucked and said, "he doesn't need help Xixi, he's so big and strong he can handle it himself," she said throwing a compact she just bought and it landed inside a bag he was carrying.
"You know u both are stronger than me right?" Groaned Revan.
"Heh think you are weak Revan? How disappointing haha!" Teased Zera. "Don't worry though, we are almost ready to go home."
They were nearing a department store, where Revan was allowed to sit down while the girls head to the bathroom.
Inside it is much like normal bathrooms,
Only the automatic flushing toilets are automated with robotic voices.
When Xixon sat down to pee, she blinked hearing s robot voice saying, "Welcome to the Automated Toi-Toi 4000. Would your butt cheeks like a massage? Perhaps a short movie for your entertainment pleasure."
"Hehe this is sweet!" Xixon giggled, amused of this machine. She thought of having one in her bathroom at home adding dirty toys to it.
Zera on the other hand was anything but amused. "What the hell do you mean you gonna rinse my butt?! No way no hell you fucking robo-pervert!!" Yelled Zera as she punched the door. She soon realized the door had a screen on it and a giant smiley face appeared as the voice says, "Couldn't specify request please repeat?"
"Sure I'll spell it in big words nice and clear: fuck off!" She yelled as she drew her blaster pistol from pants and blasted the screen and door, blasting through the door and the bathroom door at other side. The blast hit the wall at other side narrowly missing the head of the woman taking a piss at the toilet across from Zera.
The women held still in shock for a moment before running out of the bathroom screaming.
Xixon peeked from her door and clapped her hands laughing seeing what Zera did. "Haha, that was fun! Shoot someone else's stall and let's see--"
Suddenly Zera and Xixon were teleported out of the rooms.
In the mall control room, Private Chet, a skinny orange haired, green eyed man, wearing the same kind of uniform Rankle wore only his size, was looking at the security feed showing the girls being teleported away.
"It's been done sir as you ordered, the offenders have new scent to the brig," he said, as he turned to face his commanding officer, who was as large a build Rankle was, with silver military cut hair and gray eyes.
"Well done Private, the destruction of private property will not be tolerated at the mall. The first woman seemed to have military training, almost a shame to turn her into a mindless Zombie but rules are rules. And rules are absolute."
"Yes sir," replied Chet. "But why does the second woman had to be incarerated too?"
"They seem to be related, her crime is crime of association with the criminal. That aside, she was encouraging further destructive behavior. It's offense enough deserving punishment."
"I-If you say so sir...hmm? Someone is coming in...and it's a man sir," said Chet as Revan, who sensed the girls being gone came into the bathroom to find them.
"He must be With the girls we taken, and heard the gunshots and went in to find them. An admirable quality to not leave comrades behind, but he's still a rule breaker by being a man in the woman's bathroom. Take him too, sent him with the others."
Revan was one moment searching the stalls for the girls, next moment he was in a large empty room they seemed to be s holding area.
He saw Zera and Xixon together with a few random humans that seemed to also be prisoners.
Xixon saw Revan and ran to him almost on all fours and glomped him
To the ground hugging him.
"Aww baby I missed you! I'm so glad you are here!"
He smiled nuzzling her slightly. "It's ok baby you aren't getting rid of me that easily."
"Nor you me, we are here to stay baby," she said kissing him.
Revan blushed as they began making out with the human captives watching.
Zera stood in front of them persuading them to turn away with a death stare.
While they obeyed as soon as Zera turned to look at them. Some of the more Pervy humans peeked.
They would see Xixon pulling down Revan's pants Pulled up her dress about to put her pussy over his cock.
"B-baby...h-here and now? With others around," said Revan with a blush.
"Let them look, this might be our last chance to do it...I don't care where we do it and who watches as long as I have you!" Said Xixon as she put her pussy on his cock, she put her arms at his legs to support herself, as she lifted her body up and down. She moaned loudly as she began riding him.
Zera blushed watching, thinking this isn't the time or place for it, but as she watched she can't help but feel aroused from this, her demon inside started to move her body on its own.
Before she knew it she pulled down her pants, and places her pussy at Revan's face sitting across from Xixon
Xixon smirked happy that Zera is getting the hang of this.
She hugged Zera close and began making out with her. Zera's White skin became pink with blush.
Their boobs squeezed against eachother as they made out while living their bodies to ride Revan's face and cock.
Revan by now gave into yet girls, no longer caring that people are watching. He thrusted in Xixon's pussy and pulled at Zera's legs as he sucked her pussy and thrusted his tongue.
"Ahh!" Moaned Zera as she pulled away from her making out with Xixon, squeezing Her tightly. "W-why it feels so good..."
"Because there's nothing like it," smirked Xixon with a wink before pulling Zera back into the making out.
Xixon brought her wormlike tongue inside wrapping it around Zera's similar shaped tongue. She pulled at the tongue to bring her closer.
The holding area which usually was filled with sounds of crying and torment were now filled with sounds of moaning, passion, and ecstasy.
Ten minutes later the girls screamed in pleasure as they came. Revan drank Zera's cum and kelt going at Xixon until he came a few minutes later.
After they got cleaned up and snapped out of their wanderlust they got serious and got to shocked humans and asked what's going on.
One of the prisoners was a survivor of Rankle's regime, who ironically got captured by Rorke now. "You heard of Slab Rankle right? They say he's dead when his zombie factory blew up at his face. We used to think there was none like him...but we were wrong...he was part of a corps of mall cops the encourage the same insane tyrannical and militaristic ideology, Rankle followed.
"When they heard Rankle died, they apparently sent a Captain Rorke as his Replacement.
"Rorke is just as insane and frantic as Rankle was; only he has a more disciplined and smart head on his shoulders. He thinks things through. We all are brought here for even the most minor offenses. Very soon we will be sent to his zombie factory where we would be the newest recruits in his army."
"We encountered Rankle's Zombies before, they aren't much. They are mindless in every sense of the word," said Revan.
"You don't understand," said the guy. "Rorke was smarter than Rankle, what's more he's of higher rank and has access to more resources. He realized early on, of the Zombies flaws and worked improve them.
"While these new zombies are mindless they are more dangerous. They act on instinct like beasts, . Killing them is all but impossible, they track prey with enhanced animal
Senses, a bite is enough to turn anyone into one of them into minutes. We are dead meat, literally. It won't be long now till we are next."
"Then we'll break out of here," said Revan.
"How? Besides the zombies, Rorke also has Membrane's Robots and security systems at his command."
"Doesn't mean we can't try. Zera please arm them they might be of help to us."
Zera sighed as she didn't want anyone but jet to use her weapons but indeed she seen his logic on using the prisoners as foot solders to eat bullets and lure zombies away from them as they'll search for the big boss. Besides she can summon them all back when it's over, so she won't lose anything.
She used her weapon summoning abilities to summon, pistols, guns, rifles, shotguns, and blades to arm the human prisoners.
She put her hands behind her back as she summons them to make it seem like a magic trick, to fool the humans.
Xixon summon her blades, and Revan his Keyblade, both also making it appear like cheap magic tricks with slight of hand.
Humans in this world are dumb and was easy to be convinced that the weapons came from a magic trick.
Nevertheless the prisoners didn't care where the weapons came from, they at that point would do anything to get back at Rorke and be free.
There are roughly a dozen prisoners, at least one of them had military training, some hunting experience, and some with gaming experience that involves with guns.
However turned out to be at least three other holding areas nearby with just as many other prisoners.
As soon as Revan and co. Blasted their way out of their room and made their way to find and liberate and armed them.
"Sir!" Shouted Private Chet, as he looked at the screen and saw that humans escaping. "The Prisoners are escaping it's a break out!"
"Unleash the zombies, and the security bots, also activate the fire drill to get the civvies out of the mall. This is war! Corporal Joe, Lieutenant Skinner! Go and lead at the front! Private! Stay here and take point at the command center. Now go! You have you orders! The fate of the mall is at stake!"
The fire drill sent the innocent out of the mall.
Leaving Revan, Xixon, Zera and their liberated prisoners against hordes of zombies that came out of compartments throughout the mall, flanked by humanoid robot guards armed with lethal weapons. Because the robots aren't of flesh and bone, the zombies ignore them, and target the nearest uninflected living organic flesh: Revan and Xixon and Zera and their small band of helpers.
Xixon got into her demon form and began sliding off the limbs of zombies , and eating them. Despite being undead, they are still of flesh and bone, rotting and corrupted as it is.
Xixon's demon partner Xinhua feeds on physical and genetic material, preferably blood, but the undead were once people with genetic matetial, suitable for her to feed and strengthen on, without being corrupted since she's a demon.
Zera's demon however prefers pure souls and thus didn't prefer this meal and allows her host to destroy them, with her weapons and powers.
While zombies can't die, they can be incapacitated, when they are at a loss of limbs or if their bodies are destroyed enough.
But these zombies as the prisoner said, are tougher than the average zombie. They are feral animals running swiftly on all fours, attacking with nails, and teeth.
Zera coldly shoots down any human that got bitten.
Revan destroys Zombies by freezing them with Ice magic, then incinerate them with fire, leaving nothing but vapor left for them to come back from.
But Zera at one point stopped Revan, by deactivating his powers with a demon spell With a flash of her blue eyes.
His Keyblade was still drawn though.
"Hey what you do that for?!" Said Revan as he struggled to avoid zombie lunges and bites and cutting them down with Keyblade.
"You need to practice fighting without your Powers, you need to practice more in your physical skills. These losers are perfect for you."
"Dude if I get infected, I'm not sure even the Esuna spell would help!"
"Then don't get bitten, now if you excuse me I got zombies to blast."
"Wait Zera go to the control room and reprogram the robots to fight for us and help exterminate the Zombies. Surely you got some Irken tech that could hack them."
"yah...fine I'll go, don't get infected while I'm gone kay?" She waved with a kiss before flying away.
Xixon meanwhile was enjoying her meal, it was a practice for her feral hunting skills as a wolf. As both her wolf and demon powers are now active.
The zombies are nothing more than prey to her, she used the humans to aid attacking the zombies from a distance and thinning out their numbers, and she eats them as the feed on human victims.
She also feed on humans that got infected, finding them even more tastier than the zombies. Made her and her demon tempted to turn on the humans, but she needed them as bait and thin out the zombies numbers, and didn't want to anger Revan in killing innocents...that he would know about.
But soon she got an idea to make things easier, she used her corridor of darkness to summon her scrab Tom, and have her feed on the zombies and infected humans. Inside her they'll de digested away to nothing, and her exoskeleton armor makes it hard for zombie teeth to pierce her flesh and turn her.
Xixon squealed clapping her hands as she watched Tom have her fun with the zombies, the bigger problem are the robots, who are well armored and well armed, until
Zera turns them to their side it'll be difficult.
She decided to summon more reinforcements in her new wolf minions. She didn't use them on the zombies because they could be turned against her or bitten, but against robots they have more of a chance. Their strength and supernatural resilient and self healing bodies would give them a better chance against the robots' weapons .
She wasn't afraid to show her true nature in front of the humans, she knew they all will die as casualties despite Revan's optimism that they will be survivors.
She was perched against a railing on the second floor walkway watching the carnage when suddenly a human came to the walkway, it was Corporal Joe, a brown haired brown eyed medium build man, armed with a knife.
"You aren't like the other offenders, you are a commander in this rebelling army, the Captain will give me a medal for killing you," he smirked drawing his knife.
"Mmm? U talking to me bruh? Sorry was kinda busy. Ohh that's a cool knife may I keep it?"
"Sure I'll bury it in your flesh to keep!" Yelled Joe as he slashed the knife at her, she backflipped avoiding the blow. She evaded his other slashes making acrobatic like movements.
She ducked a knife stab and wrapped her arm around his hand, then did a palm strike dislocating his arm joint.
Joe yelled in pain and released the knife as Xixon threw him over her shoulder and pinned him under her foot, she picked up the knife with gee demon tail and put it at her hand.
"You know...on second thought why not you keep it on your flesh?" She giggled as she began cutting at him and stabbing him slowly to death, his screams filed the halls of the mall.
When he was dead ,she began opening him up and feasting on his innards, satisfying Xinhua's hunger.
Meanwhile Zera found the control room and went inside. She tore through doors and walls as she flown through them she finally reached the control room which was protected by a laser field, but with a barrier she went through it harmlessly.
She came into room to see Chet at the computer alone, before he could do anything she shot him in the head dead, and began jacking her Irken datapad into the computer to reprogram the security systems to fight for them and turn on the zombies.
"I'm going to miss that egghead," said Rorke's voice behind her, referring to Chet. "He may lack physical discipline, but his computer skills made him an asset. Welcome to my abode."
Zera turned at him pointing her gun at him. He was unarmed.
"I applaud you for making it this far, but this is over. You are incredible your gifts are impressive, why not join me? Together we will...RULE THE MALL!!!"
"Um no thanks, I'm fine with the crazy people in my company already."
"Then fight me in a fair fight, it would be anticlimactic to end things like this yes?"
"You got a point, it'll take time for the hacking to be complete I guess I have downtime," smirked Zera as she cracked her knuckles after putting away her gun. "Let's go..."
Meanwhile Revan was dueling against Skinner, who was armed with a knife and pistol, Revan had to block with Keyblade as he ran closer to him.
Skinner seemed to be using some sort of repellent to be not attracted by the zombies.
Without his powers Revan saw how difficult it is to fight someone with a gun, as they ran into a department store, Revan had an idea, he threw his Keyblade at skinner, who ducked before mocking him, "ha missed me!"
"Wasn't aiming at you," Revan said pointing to the wall behind him, showing Revan's Keyblade stabbed against the store's fire alarm, it activated fire sprinklers that drenched the room with water.
Revan smelled the zombie repellent with his wolf senses and figured water would wash it off.
It did, and while Skinner was distracted Revan threw a box containing a toy inside, it hit his head stunning him and he slipped on the water and fell into the ground.
Seeing there was no time to retrieve his Keyblade nor could he summon it until Zera gives him back his powers, Revan ran out of the store, before a herd of zombies attracted by a pure human scent came in and swarmed Skinner.
With a gun nearly out of ammo and a knife, Skinner didn't last long.
It was at that time the mall robots and security systems were successfully hacked and began turning on the remaining zombies.
By now all the humans were dead sadly.
Revan ran up the stairs to the second floor to see Xixon hugging Holding up Skinner's corpse playing with him like a puppet and hugging him, "aww Joey you are so cute when u are dead!"
She knew his name from his dog tag.
"See you having fun with a new toy baby," said Revan walking near her. He wasn't too disappointed seeing Skinner dead since he was an enemy.
"Mmhmm, this is the best mall trip ever, can we go again?!"
"Maybe next week baby," he said patting her head. She hugged him with a cuddle as they watched the robots and wolves, and Tom clean up the remaining zombies, and make their way to the zombie factory below to destroy it.
Meanwhile, Zera was busy in her fist fight with Rorke, she was in her normal form fighting him in a fair fight without powers. She admits for an insane man he was good and strong.
Fists and legs clashed as their melee continued.
Zera was kicked to the wall, and Rorke attempted to punch her against wall, she ducked and he punched through wall, she gut punched his stomach before kicking him away from her.
He staggered a few feet before charging at her roaring, Zera jumped backward, landing against the wall, putting her hands inside the hole Rorke made to feel wires inside. As Rorke continued his charge, Zera while still gripping the wires jumped over him. Like a mad bull he hit against the wall.
Zera landed behind him and placed the live wires against his neck electrocuting him.
While he was still being zapped she headbutted him, let go of the wires and pulled him by the collar to slam him against the ground.
With all Her physical might she yelled as she put his neck in a headlock and snapped it.
She got up with bruises but otherwise alright.
She began commanding the robots from her pad to completely raze the zombie factory to the ground, and confirmed from the security systems that no zombie survived. She allowed Revan's powers to return so he can summon his Keyblade back, and she summoned all the weapons she gave to the humans, now all dead back to her armory at Revan's home, but will be sure to sanitize them later as a precaution.
The authorities weren't notified as fire and burglar alarms were monitored by Rorke and by choice blocked them after he didn't want authorities to interfere.
With no living human witnesses, it was assumed that when Rorke' zombie factory was uncovered, his creations turned on him and his men and the mall security purged them.
Membrane shocked at what the Mall Corps did behind his back did no further dealings with them. They themselves were under investigation by the government for Rorke's crimes.
Meanwhile Organization Keyblade got away Scott-free.
Xixon however kept a something from the incident.
She recovered Skinner's body which was infected and turned into a zombie, and kept him to experiment on him to see what she can learn about zombies and how she can use it to her advantage.
And when she's done with him, she'll play with him until she's hungry then feeds on him.
But not too soon as she doesn't want to break her toys Anytime soon, undead or not.
