LCpl. Robert Neill:
[begins as narration] On a faraway island at the top of a mountain, there once lived a mighty dragon guarding a fabulous pearl. One day as the dragon slept, a stranger crept up and stole his fire, casting it down into the gully below. When the dragon awoke, he was defenseless. Without his fire, he could do nothing to stop the stranger from taking the pearl and sailing away across the South China Sea.


[switches to mission briefing scene]



LCpl. Robert Neill:
And ever since the pearl was stolen, a curse is said to be put on all strangers who enter the gully.

Chairman of the Inquiry:
How did the Colonel seem?



LCpl. Richard Mayfield:
Didn't look well physically, sir, but he didn't seem right in his mind, either. My opinion, Colonel's judgement seemed to have been affected that day. Something seemed to happen to him the moment he stepped on the mountain.

LCpl. Kevin Cheung:
Sir, we should not enter this place. We should not disturb the spirits.



LCpl. Robert Neill:
Really, Kevin, this is all so much mumbo jumbo. Once we catch up the others, we'll be fine. They're waiting for us at the bottom now.



LCpl. Kevin Cheung:
We are afraid of this place. We should not go in there.



LCpl. Robert Neill:
The purpose of this expedition, Kevin, is to confront our fears and overcome them.
