A profile of Miguel, a Cleaner of The Division, for Stories of The Division. Sponsored by Ubisoft.
"We found a bunch of 'em sheltering in a -- basically, a hobo camp. Most of 'em were dead, or pretty far gone. There was one, her skin's got those blisters all over it, can't hardly move, barely breathing. She's not gonna make it, OK? But she had this mangy German Shepherd. It would not leave her side. Growled and snapped at us, wouldn't come for food, nothin'. Maybe it had a bad leg 'cause it wouldn't even get up. So we had no choice.
"The key, you see, is to start at the center and fan out to the edges. Torch the whole thing, every square inch, or it’s not effective. It’s tempting to go fast, but when you go fast … you make mistakes. And mistakes cost lives. Well.. not the ones we burn. They’re are already lost. Died the day the damn virus got out. We stay behind to clean up their mess, so our friends and family outside this hell hole get to live.
"Cleaning up. It’s honest work.
"Look, we're not monsters. We don't enjoy this. But do you see anyone, the government, CERA, taking action? They let this whole thing get out of control. We're the only ones willing to do whatever it takes. That's the only way the rest of the world is gonna survive this. Sacrifice the few to save the many. You’re welcome."
