Graphic violence, potentially a lot of blood and gore
It seemed almost a novel concept to him, but Wade was beginning to fall into a routine of sorts with his new life. Well about as structured as one would expect from somebody in his profession. Working for Deadlock had proven to be a lot more lucrative than even he had anticipated, the jobs kept coming in and along with them the money. Given the relative distance between Ark City and the Wastes, Wade was not particularly close with the rest of the gang and that was perfectly fine with him. As much as Ashe wanted to promote a familial culture within her unit to strengthen unity and loyalty, Wade frankly didn't care as much for that. He merely saw them as a means to an end, at least until he finally found a feasible way out of this accursed box.
Even with each passing day, he never forgot about the end goal. Vanessa was still out there, waiting for Wade to travel back in time and save her. If only he had done his job a little better and ended that man's life before he could end hers. The guilt and regret still ate away at him from time to time, and it didn't help that he was stuck around here living another life in Pandora. It nearly drove him insane that there was nothing within his power that could determine whether he stayed or left the box. Every one he talked to about it said it was all chance, that the gods would deem whoever would be worthy...whatever the fuck that meant.
At the end of the day, there was nothing he could do about it and he had to simply resume his life until an answer clearly presented himself. But he refused to move on, not unless by some miracle Vanessa also magically appeared here. Now wouldn't that be something?
Work brought Wade to the small town of Seratorra. After taking a portal to Lethe, he was given a rather risky assignment by Ashe to retrieve around two to three "Rotters" from the Plaguelands east of the Scorch. As their name implied, the Plaguelands consisted of a post-apocalyptic town struck by a virus that reduced nearly all of the populace into mindless zombies. Given the strength and durability of these Rotters though, they made fine guard dogs for many of the gangs and warbands operating in the Wastes. Ashe figured Deadlock could gain to profit by selling off a few of these bad boys.
On top of that, Wade's unique abilities granted him immunity to the effects of the virus along with any wounds inflicted by Rotters he came across. His zombie fighting experience came down to watching re-runs of the Walking Dead, but for some reason Ashe and the rest of the gang somehow trusted him with the assignment. So much so that he was ordered to do it solo without any backup from the gang, as Ashe didn't want to risk anybody from Deadlock getting infected. Well so much for looking out for each other.
And that's what ultimately brought him to Seratorra. In addition to stocking up on provisions and ammunition, he was hoping he could enlist at least one
