Evacuation is a gamemode in Legacy Evolve. Serving as a primary campaign mode, the first batch of Hunters attempt to evac the whole colony after William Cabot collects a group of Hunters equipped to eliminate the Monster threat. Despite having only five days to evacuate colonists, the Hunters win against the Monster threat temporarily, giving the evacuation ship time to leave.
However, the Hunters stay on their own will in hopes of exterminating the Monsters to the point of extinction.
The Hunters that are known in this time period are:
After Basilisk's Soldiers became illegal, Slim fled to the Far Arm where he could not be found. Ending up on Shear and adapting to the wildlife's presence, the bug-man settled in on the dangerous planet. However, after tracking a Goliath solo, Slim eventually met up with Khovalyg 'Crow' who had been tagging him the past couple of days as well. The two got along well and made the agreement that they were both looking for Cabot's group.
Returning from the destruction of The Sword, Sunny came to Shear to become a Planet Tamer and find Abe and Parnell. Instead, she found Torvald's legs damaged and ripped off. She gave him the benefit of the doubt and fixed his legs. Realizing the two had a common goal, they partnered up (despite Torvald's opinion of Sunny) in order to find The Crew.
Crow, real name Khovalyg, initially worked in Survey and came to Shear to retire and be alone. However, with the intrusion of the Monsters, Crow considered he had the skills required to join the Planet Tamers and went to look for them. He ran into Slim, finding him strange and wanting to figure out what he was. Tagging him for three days, the two eventually introduced themselves after Slim told him he knew he had been following him. Crow and Slim lived together while they searched for Cabot's group.
Coming from the destroyed Ajax, Torvald is filled with hate for the Monsters and came to Shear to hunt them with The Crew. From unexplained consequences, Sunny came across Torvald, whose robotic legs had been damaged and torn off. Sunny fixed him up and the two admitted who they were looking for. Teaming up, the two searched Shear for the Planet Tamers.
Slim, Sunny, Crow and Torvald all eventually met up and arrived at the Laurie-Ann as an entire team of Hunters. As anticipated, the four were accepted into The Crew.
Emet was discovered on Shear by Jack in his scrapyard and had a faulty Demon Core implanted in order to help him fight Monsters and heal. According to Cabot, Emet and Jack seemed like "a package deal" and thus were accepted. At this time, no information has been revealed about Emet's past or why he was discarded.
Kala was originally a scientist that worked on the Akanhaten (unbeknownst to her). After superiors found faults in her work and gave Kala pictures of the Monsters, she was horrified, and injected herself with Monster DNA to test out her theory that involved the Patterson effect. Coming to Shear in hopes of finding more evidence, Cabot accepted her solely because he too wanted to know about the Monsters, despite The Crew's attempts to persuade him to make Kala leave.
Jack was born on Shear, and thus has adapted to it's harsh environment. Creating and upgrading his gear from the nearby scrapyard, Jack eventually met up with Emet who he befriended and gave him a Demon Core to boost his fighting capabilities. Jack created an heroine alias that he called 'The Jackal', designed to strike fear into Monsters and give hope to colonists. Soon after, Jack joined The Crew with Emet and most likely his suspected mother, Ida Lennox. Not much else is known about Jack's life on Shear before the Evacuation.
Ida Lennox colonized, designed and lived on Shear. After the Monster threat came to light, Lennox wanted to exterminate them and as a result, Lennox created a fully operational, Monster-slaying machine that she called the Thunderchild, and joined up with Cabot's group. There is unfortunately not a lot of information about Lennox's past before the Monsters except for her contribution to Shear.
At this point, the condition of Shear has worsened with the threat of Monsters. These four Hunters were accepted into Cabot's group for the fight for Shear.
The Cataclysm Edit
A while after Tier-5, the Cataclysm occurs, with most of the Hunters almost completely being wiped out. Air becomes toxic, and survivors are forced to wear gas masks. Abe, Maggie and Cabot objectively go crazy and re-imagine themselves as Renegade Abe, Wasteland Maggie and Battle Cabot to become stronger and avenge their fallen friends.
Meteor Goliath also exists in this Time Period.
This time period envisions Shear when the wildlife has even become stronger and most are Elited adaptions. A few deceased Hunters (such as Griffin, Caira and possibility Bucket) are re-imagined as Electro Griffin, Quantum Caira, and C-Bucket by the public to inspire them. However, these adaptions aren't real and are just propaganda.
Elder Kraken also exists in this Time Period.
Deepest Dark Edit
Deepest Dark occurs when Shear has been completely overtaken by the Monsters. A few Hunters barely remain and the strongest Monsters, such as the Gorgon Queen, breed extensively, only furthering the destruction of the Planet.
The only known character at this time that exists in this period is H-Hyde.
Unnamed Time Periods Edit
Currently, there are two time periods that have not been named or revealed.
Unknown 1 - Paladin Parnell Edit
From what has been seen in Paladin Parnell's period, Shear is barren, broken and empty. Monsters likely still rule.
There is no information so far about this time period, but Rogue Val, Blitz Markov, and Tech Sgt. Hank are here.
