Wrack is a shell-shocked Slipgate War veteran who relives countless battles through a haze of imagined glories, half-remembered facts, and exaggerated personal abilities.
He's a fighting machine, but shell-shock induced amnesia has made him a less challenging foe than he might once have been. He imagines that he once was the avowed master of the Arenas like this...but things changed and it doesn't work right any more.
"How much blood must I bathe in before I find peace?"
"This is [map name]? They've really cleaned this place up!"
"Aren't there supposed to be 'slipgates' here?"
"Come with me, [random enemy]. Find peace."
"Gonna find me some fiends to frag."
"Deja vu all over again ... aargh!"
"I'm having flashbacks."
"And the sky was full of rockets."
"Wish I had some real opponents here."
"Why is everyone stopping? I'm still here ... I think...yeah, I am!"
"[Winner] is bucking for sergeant."
"[Loser] should've stayed back in the mess hall."
"Over already? I remember these things lasting for hours."
"They don't train 'em like the used to."
"[Map name] always was sweet to me."
"Don't take it personally, [random enemy], I was doing this when you were in diapers."
"Yeah. Technology over tactics. Big guns over good moves."
"You proud, [winner]? You shouldn't be proud! That was lame!"
"They've changed this place. I remember [map name] before they messed it up."
"I don't care what it freakin' says. I DON'T LOSE."
"Don't they teach etiquette in your clan, [fighter]."
"I really hope that [random enemy] just misfired."
"I remember when [fighter]s like you had better manners."
"Can't jump right anymore, can't run fast. When I was younger ..."
"You're making it harder for me to go through airports... the bells, the bells!"
"Pinged another one off the plate in my head. What're you shooting... magnets?"
"When I started fighting, you were in diapers, [enemy], and now, you need 'em again."
"Stop screaming, [enemy]! I can't hear the other voices in my head!"
"Wait, you're not 'Old Yeller!'"
"Leave me alone, [enemy]! There's already too many people in here!"
"Nothing but static at this end."
"Cats can do it, so can I!"
"Up, up, and away! I'm a bird! I'm a plane!"
"Used to fall a lot farther than that with no pain."
"Let's see you do better, [enemy]."
"How did Cthon manage this stuff?"
"Hey, [enemy]. Got any marshmallows?"
"Battle suits are for wimps. Give me an Enviro Suit any day."
"KP again ... too much creamed corn ... way too much creamed corn."
"Doesn't smell like liniment."
"This stuff is primordial ooze."
"I can't hear! Why can't I hear?"
"We had gills when I was a boy!"
"Hey, [enemy], throw me a lifesaver. And I don't mean candy!"
"Course I can swim. Just didn't feel like it then."
"This doesn't look like the well of wishes..."
"Too complicated. Used to be simple. Mano y mano."
"Not the first time I've done this ...won't be the last."
"Charlie got tougher in the jungle."
"You just try that again when I'm drunk."
"Sissy gun! Sissy gun! We wouldn't use crap like that in the old days!"
"Oh look, a viking burial! Hey wait, it's mine!"
"Whose bright idea was this weapon?"
"What're the fireworks for, [enemy]? Ow...never mind."
"Four years ago, I could've killed you with a projectile-shaped piece of earwax."
"Yeah, in the old days, I had to walk a mile through six feet of snow to frag someone."
"They make things too easy now. Anybody can fight here."
"You're a long way from the elite, [fighter]."
"And the old stallion is driven from the herd..."
"You fight like that for 30 years ... you just might be me someday."
"Nice. You trained with the 'old ones,' didn't you, [enemy]?"
"That you, G. Narley?"
"Woohoo! That was too easy. They're taking all the fun out of it."
"Choo choo! Train's coming through!"
"I'd rather have a nail gun."
"I'd rather have a 'Thunderbolt.'"
"In the old days, we cooked hot dogs like this.""Gimme back my axe! I hate this thing.""Way too easy.""No challenge here."
Killing with telefrag"That's like putting an 8-track in a cassette deck!""I'm a slip-gating fool! Wahoooo!"
Another player kills self"Wait minute ... what's the point of this again?""Go as negative as you want, [enemy].""If you can't handle the heat, [enemy], stay outta the lava.""Lamebrain, [fighter]."
Kill insults"I've had better fights trying to put my pants on in the middle of the night.""I hate fraggin' them before they're old enough to drive.""You old enough to be here, [enemy]? Can I see some ID.""Come back when you've improved enough to be competition, [enemy].""Age and treachery always overcome youth and skill. You bet!"
Kill praise"You done good, [enemy]. Too bad you won't get to polish your technique.""You remind me of me in the old days ... course, I got better.""You've been watching ol' Wrack's moves, right, [enemy]?"
Random insults"Wipe your nose, [fighter]. Your whiney sniffling's giving you away.""You want a little cheese with that whine, [enemy]?""And I thought I didn't know where I was. You lost there, [enemy]?"
Random misc"I got a cramp. Hey, [random enemy], rub my leg.""Improve or die, [fighter]s. Improve or die.""I want to feel some more of your pain, [random enemy].""And the sky was full of planes ...""Hey, [enemy]! I need a [random weapon]. Think I'll take yours."
