Making a Stand
The Colonel allies with Cortez in order to help spread his ideals across the globe. He soon encounters the low-life crook, Trader Slick, who informs him that a large power source is nearby. The Colonel moves to check it out, only to encounter Lust. The Colonel does not take kindly to Slick's trick, but he soon learns that Lust is a Homunculus planning to kill him. The Colonel tries to shoot his foe, but Lust absorbs the wounds without any harm to her person. The Colonel then falls back when Lust severely slashes his hand. He has little time to react before Lust impales him with her lethal fingers.
The Colonel survives the assassination attempt, joining Cortez in the combination of their alliance with the Iscariot organization. Cortez ends up killed by another one of the Homunculi, Envy, leaving the Colonel distraught. One of his new allies, Inspector Javert, warns him that revenge should never be sought and that justice must be served by the book.

Seeing that Wrath is stunned, the Colonel shoots at some vats of flammable chemicals; the explosion sets Wrath on fire. Javert then melts the skull. Thinking themselves victorious, the Colonel and Javert prepare to leave, only to be surrounded by shadows. As it turns out, Wrath was secretly Envy the entire time, and Selim Bradley isn't just not dead: he's the leader of the Homunculi, Pride.
