This time out Hale is part of a special task force of soldiers called "The Sentinels", who, like him, are infected with the Chimeran virus, but keep it under control with special inhibitors and are thus able to reap the benefits but the inhibitors only last a certain time until they either get another shot or the chimera virus takes over."
