“Icon of the Defender Part II”
The mercenaries with morals known as the Rhodium Golems have gone their separate ways since defeating evil scientist Sorina Manescu a year prior. pilot Vincenzo Corbucci is now an aerial chauffeur for VIPs and is in a relationship with ex-hitwoman-turned-actress Hiroka Noguchi, Nikolai Rostavili is a drill instructor for the FSB and Jacques Dubois is an author specialising in pulp fiction novels. Following a failed assassination attempt on former femme fatale turned physical education teacher Elsa Lindblom, Vincenzo suspects that Project Athena may not have been fully put to rest and gathers his old friends for one last, final mission. In a parallel storyline, Rosh Goldman’s rise to power and fall from grace is chronicled in flashback sequences as his life experiences lead him to form the 5 Elements, a cabal with a titanium grip on nearly every corner of the globe.
