Like Supernatural beings, she distrusts Mages but has no dislike for non supernatural D-Bees or psychics, She is very cautious of the Coalition dues to events that happened to her.

Private Alexandra Hawke caught herself thinking again about how uneducated the Chi-Town troops she was working with were. Few of even the Non-Commissioned Officers even knew how to read and write. How could a person even get orders when this was the case. At least Lone Star trained most of their soldiers how to read. Even a young farm girl that always wanted to be a wilderness scout and who grew up to be a Coalition Ranger was taught how to read and write. Of course, her instructors always insisted that she record her observations while in the field which required her to be able to read and write.
Her small scout team was sneaking through deep snow near the border old American Empire state of Wisconsin. She loved the wilderness and her armor protected her quite well from the cold late January weather. Her team considered of two rangers, two normal psi-hounds, a mutant fox psychic, and battle cat heavy weapon specialist, and the lieutenant who was overall in charge. The reality was that they were more like a family than a normal military team and had achieved some incredible results. As a result, they had been sent up to Chi-Town to help train the special teams from the more northern state. In this case, the team were supposedly acting as advanced scouts for a supposed company of Chi-Town troops. The Chi-Town troops that were behind the scouting team seem to be untrained prison scum and not professional soldiers. This did not bode well at all. Private Hawke also knew that her lieutenant had managed to anger one or more of the senior officer at the base they were stationed at. She knew that he had an argument with them over the treatment of mutant animal troops but it seemed to be something else as well. The Lone Star scout team had been sent on one dangerous mission after another. Dangerous missions was not the best term actually in her opinion, suicidal missions would be a better term. She wondered if this missions was not in reality to get them all killed.
As her head throbbed from the danger she was constantly feeling. She knew that Davros, the mutant fox physic, who was traveling on her side was also feeling the tension in the air. Each member of the scouting team had telepathy and had been long practiced using telepathy to communicate with each other and had grown to the point that they no longer had to concentrate to maintain it. While they had hunted Xiticix before, they had always been better supported in the previous missions.
One of the alien insects appears from an underground hiding places and attacked. Fatalis, the teams heavy weapon specialist opened up with her heavy particle beam rifle and quickly killed it. The flash from the rifle caused Alexandra looked up. She had previously been looking at some tracks. She saw what looked like hundreds of Xiticix rising from concealed positions on the ground. She listened in horror to her helmet communications. The company had broken and was running. Only her scout team was staying together and they were greatly outnumbered by the bugs. The scouts retreated together but in the initial retreat, one of the dog boys and the other ranger were killed.
After several hours of constant fighting and running, the remainder of the scout team finally got out of the combat area and into some relative safety. Alexandra figured than virtually the whole company had been killed. Most of the scout teams ammunition was gone and their armors were pounded to the point of almost scrap. By this time, the other dogboy scout was dead and the lieutenant was mortally injured with half of his chest shredded. Alexandra pulled off her commanding officers helmet and heard him try and say something. She pulled off her own helmet and put her face next to his. She heard from him “Don’t bring them back.” His breath caught and stopped. She closed his eyes, kissed him in the forehead, and tears began running down the sides of her face. She could see the bright eyes of her other two surviving companions and knew that they were holding back tears as well. She knew he meant that they should not return back to the Coalition because they would all be killed on way or another.
