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 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 Raven as Cpl. Michael Barrick retrieved Lt. Minh Young Kim and brought him back to the roof. As they boarded, Eighty-Four took off and escaped the city through the only section of the sky which the Kryll had not swarmed over.
