No matter what you have heard, everyone breaks under torture. Some EA Special Forces have a chip in their head that can cut off the pain center of the brain if agony reaches a certain level. It can even kill them under certain circumstances to protect what’s inside their head. But not a low-level grunt like me. Mine could only dull a level of pain that could get me through a bad day—like losing a hand to a plasma blast. That had been bad enough. I wouldn’t withstand torture very long.
