Besides, Robert initially would also be responsible for removing Ellie from the city. Desperate, Marlene enlisted the services of the sector’s two most feared smugglers, to escort Ellie out of town before the army wiped out all the Fireflies.
Thus, he prepared a small team of Fireflies to meet them on Capitol Hill. When they reached the secret area where Ellie was waiting, the girl thought that the smugglers were trying to attack Marlene and launched into her defense.
