Sergeant South has heard reports of a HYDRA base disguised as an old factory operating in Valdera City, planning to unleash an experimental nerve gas on the city. Upon arriving at the factory, South was surprised to see a trail of dead HYDRA soldiers leading deeper into the base. Readying his shield and sword, the dixie hero continued into a large room, filled with even more dead HYDRA, and a black-clad figure in the center of the room.
