Langst for the soul
Okay what if after about 6-8 years after they leave to defeat Zarkon they do it. And the Paladins are so excited. Home. They have missed it so badly. But when they get home WW3 is in the process. Obviously it’s not god but for the most part their families are okay but then they go to visit Cuba. Oh sweet Jesus Cuba. Cuba was one of the casualties of the war. Cuba was bombed. There were no survivors. Lance cracks. He breaks down. And starts yelling and screaming and sobbing they are all dead! Lance runs, and the team lets him.
During the war there becomes a legend of a man with no remorse. Who kills with no second thoughts. He uses weapons they don’t even have. He is so terrifying that they simply call him, Blue.
