STAND UP.

- YOU USED TO BE FASTER.

- YOU USED TO HAVE MORE HAIR.

LOOK AT YOU.

WHAT A MESS!

WHAT HAPPENED:

TO THAT UNIFORM...

YOU USED TO BE:

SO PROUD OF?

YOU'VE BEEN ROAMING

THE WASTELANDS,

BRAWLING WITH HALF-MEN,

NO DOUBT.

A MAN NEEDS:

HIS EXERCISE.

IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU, SIR.

I BELIEVE WE WERE HEADING

FOR THE SAME TAVERN.

LET'S GO

HAVE A DRINK.

- PEACEMAKER?

- YOU THINK I'M TOO OLD?

I CAN STILL TOSS FIVE

OF THE LIKES OF YOU.

I DIDN'T TEACH YOU

EVERY TRICK I KNOW.

TAUGHT ME ENOUGH

NOT TO ARGUE WITH YOU.

PEACEMAKER IS:

A RESPECTABLE JOB.

YOU SHOULD TRY IT.

HOW LONG DO YOU INTEND TO

LIVE OUT IN THE WASTELANDS?

IT'S MY HOME.

WHAT HAPPENED TO REGEND AND

LAURIA WASN'T YOUR FAULT.

WE'VE ALL LOST FAMILIES

BECAUSE OF THE WAR.

YOU HAVE TO LET GO.

THE WASTELAND SUITS ME FINE.

SO WHERE'S MERIDIAN?

I'VE NEVER HEARD OF IT.

IT'S A SMALL SETTLEMEN TO THE EAST.

THEY'RE HAVING DISPUTES

OVER WATER RIGHTS.

WHY YOU? WHY NO SEND THE ENFORCERS?

BECAUSE THE COUNCIL DIDN'T DEEM

IT BIG ENOUGH FOR THE ENFORCERS.

AND I HAVE A PERSONAL

INTEREST IN MERIDIAN.

I'VE GIVEN UP TEACHING.

I DON'T WANT TO SHOW

PEOPLE TO FIGHT ANYMORE.

THE TIMES ARE CHANGING.

THERE ARE MORE IMPORTAN THINGS TO DO TODAY.

THOSE OF US WHO SURVIVED

THE WARS...

HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY

TO THOSE WHO DIDN'T.

MOM, LOOK!

WH-WHAT THE HELL'S THAT?

SPARE SOME WATER?

I'LL PAY.

NO NEED.

JUX.

GO GET SOME WATER, PLEASE.

YOU'RE NOT FROM MERIDIAN,

ARE YOU? NO, MA'AM.

YOU COME ABOUT THE WORK?

MAYBE.

EVER WORK ON:

A PURIFICATION FARM BEFORE?

FARMING'S A LITTLE

OUT OF MY LINE, BUT...

STILL, WHEN I HAVE TO,

I CAN MANAGE.

WHAT I'M OFFERING

IS FOOD AND SHELTER.

FOOD SOUNDS GOOD.

COME ON IN.

MY NAME'S KASHA.

WHAT SHALL WE CALL YOU?

WHATEVER YOU LIKE.

I'M NOT PARTICULAR.

THIS IS TARK,

MY FOREMAN.

TOOEY AND OFF,

HIS HELPERS.

TOOEY WILL SHOW YOU TO YOUR QUARTERS

WHERE YOU CAN STORE YOUR BELONGINGS.

I HOPE YOU LIKE IT HERE.

TOOEY,

BACK TO WORK.

YOU MIGHT AS WELL KNOW

THE LAYOUT FROM THE START.

I'MHEAD DOG ON THIS FARM.

THAT WOMAN AND CHILD

ARE UNDER MY PROTECTION,

SO, UNLESS YOU WAN TO ANSWER TO ME,

DON'T GO MAKING TROUBLE

FOR US.

UNDERSTAND?

MM.

- WHAT ARE YOU BUILDIN'?

- A WIND RACER.

YOU'RE DOING

A DANDY JOB, FELLOWS.

STRAIGHT AHEAD NOW.

A LITTLE TO THE LEFT,

PLEASE, AND THANK YOU!

AND BREAK, LADS.

HELLO, CALI.

WHERE'D YOU GET THA DIRGE? DESIGNED IT MYSELF.

GOOD. WOULDN'T IT BE EASIER

TO WALK ON YOUR HANDS?

CALI.

IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU.

I'VE GOT SOMETHING FOR YOU.

A LETTER, ALL THE WAY

FROM THE CITY.

CAN I INVITE YOU

AND YOUR FRIENDS IN FOR LUNCH?

OH, ANOTHER TIME, PERHAPS.

MY MEDICAL EXPERTISE

IS IN NEED.

NOT A MOMENT TO LOSE!

COME ALONG, CHAPS.

- OFF WE GO.

- SEE YOU AT THE GATHERING TONIGHT.

STRAIGHT AHEAD, LADS.

THOSE WON'T GROW.

WHAT?

THOSE WON'T GROW.

WHY NOT?

YOU PLANTED THEM

UPSIDE DOWN.

TOO CLOSE TOGETHER.

THEY SHOULD BE:

THIS FAR APART.

- YOUR MOTHER TEACH YOU THAT?

- NO, MY FATHER DID. BUT HE'S DEAD NOW.

IN THE WAR.

HE WAS A COMMANDER.

COMMANDER TERRAN.

- I KNEW HIM.

- YOU KNEW HIM?

HE WAS A GREAT MAN.

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

JUX.

WELL, JUX,

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT:

YOU HELP ME:

WITH MY FARM WORK,

I'LL HELP YOU BUILD

THAT WIND RACER.

DEAL.

TARK.

HITCH UP THE WAGON AND

ASK THE NEW MAN TO JOIN US.

WE'RE TAKING HIM ALONG?

I WOULDN'T TRUST HIM

HERE ALONE.

TOGETHER, WE ARE STRONG.

STRONG IN OUR COMMITMENT,

STRONG IN OUR PURPOSE.

WE MUST MAKE:

THIS LAND LIVE AGAIN.

LET US NOT WEAKEN OURSELVES

BY LEAVING THE VALLEY,

AS SO MANY:

HAVE ALREADY DONE.

HELP US TO BRAVE

THE SUMMER SANDSTORMS.

LET US HOLD STRONG AGAINST THE HEAT OF

THE WIND THAT CUTS THROUGH OUR VALLEY.

AND LET US HAVE THE STRENGTH

TO FIGHT EVEN THE VIOLENCE...

WHICH ARISES FROM

OUR VALLEY AS WELL.

- WELCOME, KASHA.

- MAY I SPEAK?

FOR YEARS NOW,

I'VE BEEN ADVISING YOU

TO HOLD ONTO YOUR LAND.

AT TIMES, IT HASN' SEEMED WORTH IT.

BUT TIMES ARE:

ABOUT TO CHANGE.

I HAVE JUST RECEIVED A LETTER

FROM THE COUNCIL OF THE ORDER.

A PEACEMAKER HAS BEEN

APPOINTED TO THIS SETTLEMENT!

THE DAYS OF FEAR ARE OVER.

NOW WE CAN FARM OUR LAND.

SEEMS I ARRIVED:

JUST IN TIME FOR A SPEECH.

THAT'S DAMNIL.

IT'S JUST AS WELL

YOU'RE HERE, DAMNIL.

THE PEACEMAKER'S ARRIVAL IS MORE

SIGNIFICANT TO YOU THAN THE REST OF US.

AH, YES.

THE PEACEMAKER.

I'VE KNOWN ABOUT THA APPOINTMENT FOR SOME TIME.

NO ONE WOULD BE HAPPIER TO

SEE A PEACEMAKER THAN I WOULD.

I'M A LAW-ABIDING CITIZEN.

THERE'S A LOT OF DANGEROUS LAND

BETWEEN HERE AND THE CITY.

ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN TO A

PEACEMAKER ON THE ROAD THESE DAYS.

UNTIL HE ARRIVES,

I... AM THE AUTHORITY...

IN THIS VALLEY!

FIVE CENTS!

FIVE CENTS!

WHOA. HO.

HELLO, KASHA.

FATHER HAS YOUR PACKAGE.

THE VALVE.

COME ON, JUX.

LET'S PLAY!

HA, HA, HA, HA! COME ON! HEY. HEY.

COME ON, YOU OWE ME

A BEER. KNOCK IT OFF.

KNOCK IT OFF.

GUESS YOUR WEIGHT. STEP RIGH UP, I'LL GUESS YOUR WEIGHT.

HEY.

ISN'T THAT HER WAGON?

YEAH.

LET'S GO, THEN.

DON'T GO AWAY.

I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

IT HURT ME MUCH MORE

THAN IT HURTS YOU.

HOW'RE YA DOIN'? FINE. I

WAS BEGINNING TO WONDER...

IF WE'D GET IT BEFORE SUMMER. IT'S

THE LAST ONE. TAKE GOOD CARE OF IT.

I DON'T WANT TO GET CAUGH WITHOUT A PUMP DURING A SANDSTORM.

WE'LL BE CAREFUL. COME ON,

JUX. LET'S GET A SWEET ROLL.

OH!

I THOUGHT SCUD RATS

ONLY CAME OUT AT NIGHT.

YOU'RE A BIG,

FAT, SLIMY PIG.
