Around a decade after Emergence Day, the city of Ilima was attacked by Locust forces. KR Eighty-Four participated in the evacuation of civilians and Gears from the city as a massive swarm of Kryll descended on Ilima. As the city was being abandoned to the Locust, Commander Walker dispatched KR Eighty-Four to rescue the last group of civilians and Zeta-Six from the Children's School of Hope. The pilot landed on the roof of the orphanage, and the surviving civilians were loaded onto the KR Eighty-Four as Cpl.Michael Barrick retrieved Lt.Minh Young Kim and brought him back to the roof. As they boarded, KR Eighty-Four took off, and escaped the city through they only are left in the sky which the kryll had not swarmed over.
