Deployed days after the Spire attack that wiped out Orick, Victor Nine and his recon unit attempted to send a telegram to SRPA notifying of Spinners and providing estimates as to the death count of the town. He and his unit noted that the town had long been overrun and recovery of any civilians was no longer feasible. In the same telegram, he also noted that his unit would attempt to collect Spinner samples for analysis. Unfortunately, he and his squad were quickly overwhelmed when Spinners attacked them. Lt. Hale eventually discovered both the telegram and the cocoon of Victor Nine and his recon unit.
