    "Ladies? Take her away. We have reason to believe the good auditor is lying to us."
    "What? This is bull****! You can't unplug me!" Unfortunately for Patricia, they most certainly can, and the Sec girls do as Evan asks. Huge, dripping cords are extracted from her neck and the base of her skull. She winces as they're removed.

    At that point, the two most heavily augged of the group drag Pat from her chair, and while she curses at them, she doesn't struggle much. She knows it's pointless. They take her to an unused office storage unit, clear off a table, and sit her down in front of it. If Evan wants to ask her any questions, he can do so there.

    "Can I live in a normal person's room? With toys and stuff? Please? Can I?"
    He's kinda a child at heart.
    "Then we can run tests every day," Naitiri says, almost giddy about the possibilities. "You most certainly can, Zero! What sorts of toys do you like?" She leans toward him, talking and smiling like a doting mother would.

    Vesa finds the bustier, prettier woman interesting, and asks this sort of question basically every time they meet. She isn't jealous, mostly because she lacks a good understanding of sex drives and doesn't see what the big deal is about having large breasts (balance issues, getting in the way, etc). She is interested in the way people interact, however, and appreciates aesthetic harmony (and probably has done a few sketches of Melody-23).
    Melody shakes her head. She's never minded those questions - would perhaps consider Vesa a friend, if she could say so without getting patched. "One. I'll tell you about him later. Not enough rich folks near here that need a bodyguard. I'm supposed to go walkin' the Blue Zone soon, though. Should be fun," Melody smiles, and the sheen is almost blinding. She does seem to... enjoy her work? It's not hard to, when you're programmed to act that way. Then, as she always does, Melody asks, "So when you gonna sign up for the Escorts, Vesa?" It's practically become a ritual, with her. It's not a directive, she has no special need to induct new Revs into the fold. The Company would do that for her.

Unfortunately, with my current living situation, I am unable to access any of my stored volumes of compiled works of Lovecraft with which to relate the physical traits of the Yith as descriptively as is possible.

    Drat! Here's where I'd link a picture, but I cannot for the life of me track down a decent shot of a Yithian as portrayed in Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth.

    Well, here goes nothing!

    The colossal alien's husk is a relatively cone-shaped base with four distensible appendages protruding from it. Two of these limbs terminate in claws which are utilized to manipulate objects. One extremity displays four red horn-like organic apparatuses. The other functions as a spherical yellow head upon which three yellow eyes are mounted at regular intervals, with tentacles lining the bottom of the head and flower-shaped ears arrayed atop the head.

    Not intent on being the source of a ruction, the seemingly out of place erudite alien shimmies off to a corner of the lobby, obviously awaiting a certain someone or something's admittance to the clinic.

    While it finds the procedures performed in this center of healing and fantastic sometimes gaudy ornamentation primitive, it is cognizant of its offspring's choice to mend herself here this evening. The purpose of its visit is to safeguard her through the operation.

    She'll be here next post.
    I know quite well what the Great Race looks like on the physical plane. As such, the employees recoil from its hideous visage, but the Nexus residents that are more versed in such strange things merely pass it by like everyone else.

    "Can I help you?" One particularly brave Elexxion employee asks, determined to make his quota no matter what. He's... never seen something like this, and it shows on his face, but he's dealing with it in his own way.

The standard line seems to be quiet low and many energy cells could fullfill that task, but there aare a few larger outburst which would need something stronger and what maybe most important there are outburst who pass the energy scale. So assuming to the normal electricity network the last one might case a electrical short.

    "These plans should give the informations needed to make out if your power source is able to fullfill the task. I'm sorry not to show the blueprints first, but there is no point when there is no goal."
    "Young man, I don't give away company secrets without a reason. We've got policies to uphold. I need to see what you're building," Maxwell says. He sounds quite busy - but that's likely because he's dealing with the whole Frontier at once, inside his mechanical head.

    "Well, Arachne and Ariadne... that's going to be tricky," Gertrude begins, looking over the lot of them. Damn, she's gonna get a big commission for this. "As for the rest of you, the upgrades should be relatively simple. Let's start with this sword extension - what do you mean by that?"

There are a bunch of different things he may never have seen before, but they all give the clue that this suit is made to fullfill several task. As with everything there is also a good chance this could be seen as a weapon, but to be true what couldn't?

    Alright, time to back off from that line of question. "Final inquiry; Once the terms of occupation are accepted, is there a way to leave the services of the Transhuman Clinic?" It just wants to make sure that it isn't locking itself into something it can never escape, if it needs to. It is also particularly interested in meeting this Auditor Patricia. It won't make that desire known, of course; that could hurt its chances of being accepted for the job.

    A cut in comms occurs. Rather than Patricia, a male voice replies, "The Clinic and any unshackled AI's reserve the right to terminate their employment at any time." The male voice is a bit more friendly, if far less concerned about the whole situation. "Upon termination of employment, select augmentations will be removed per the AI's request."

    "Not be able to handle... oh, c'mon Vesa," Melody glances down, cupping the underside of her breasts for a second. "Getting implants isn't required. Gets you more clients, sure, but there are other ways..."

    A smirk crosses Melody's perfectly engineered features. "I swear, I am never gonna get you out've that harness. Besides," She attempts to put a chummy arm around Vesa's shoulders. "When and where have you seen a coital relationship?" Now she's curious.

    I have researched the subject. Medical and social information sources, mostly, since the majority of video resources are composed of improbable situations involving repair personnel. She lets Melody put an arm around her; she's comfortable enough around her to let her do that.

    Andy looks a bit confused at Maxwell. The bueprints itself are quiet high tech even thought we are in the Nexus. Maxwell also may notice that the plans are... strange like there is a part missing. IN fact it is on prupose. Some kind of security.

    "These are plans I made. Nothing more than a child's dream."

    Well in the world where Andy is from such technic is possible, but people won't do them since they have technologie that could fullfill these task without needing so much energy. Also I shoud note that Andy's world has some kind of tech religion. They make things far away from things we know today.

    The Yithian majestically bends and adjusts its head to glance over the human, intentions likely indecipherable from its body language. In order to facilitate an exchange of information with this human, it must attempt to reach out to him psychically or be stuck between a rock and a hard place due to a language barrier and disconnect which could easily be misconstrued by one not accustomed to this particular Yithian's ways.

    It shall attempt to psychically commune with the salesman in utter silence, its words steeped in terseness.

    "I am...awaiting someone."

    It indicates, back to the front door.

    "She'll arrive in exactly three seconds from the time I finish this sentence."

    Precisely three seconds later, a girl does indeed enter the building! Wow!

    Description:

    Her glossy, lustrous, luxuriant naturally ultramarine blue hair is swept back in a silky-smooth, bouncy ponytail that floats about the base of of her neck, shifting left and right aerodynamically with her foxy, charismatic face. Her eyes are tinted emerald and shimmer with a coy, cogent glint. Her lips are lush and of a subdued fuchsia tone. Mounted atop her head are cute little (modified and enhanced) bat ears that are furry on the back (in addition to the usual human features) that are more often than not tucked away and obscured under a thick layer of her hair, seamlessly camouflaged and blended with it. Some of her teeth have grown fanged, honed down to a fine point and quite possibly hooked into a venom gland, though these are retractable canines interspersed among her mouth in strategic positions, so they won't hinder typical (or atypical) jaw movement in the least!

    She is a mutant with a spindly ultramarine tail! It is practically a slim bushy blue whip of a tail! And it wags as though it has a mind of its own. In fact, the female it belongs to pays it no heed as if she has yet to acknowledge its presence.

    On the palm and back of both of her hands are circular brands etched and delineated in a metallic substance that resembles the sheen and chemical inertness of gold. They are about as ornate and gaudy as can be, eternally reworking themselves again and again into altogether dissimilar depictions of symbols for the elements fire, earth, water, and air.

    On her neck there has been painted a breathtaking silver tattoo granted to her by her partner, Trium!

    Her imperfections, all contributing to her overall perfection, are marred, however. All across her body are little scars, nicks, and gashes, sundry wounds that are all too trivial in a medical sense but damaging in fashion-oriented perceptions. None have undermined the winsome quality of her face as of yet, however, as she's never endured a blow to her noggin that she had to patch up herself.

    The perspicacious gal isn't quite a ravishing beauty. Her body type dictates voluptuousness but with special emphasis on athleticism and functionality, but it has been hellaciously malnourished for years and is only now beginning to procure essential nutriment in excess of what it takes to survive. That said, her musculature is more developed than that of your top-of-the-line and of an altogether divergent design.

    She's clad in clothing that certainly doesn't adhere to the iconic vestments of a holy cleric (not that she is one). She's showcasing a simple crimson zip-up hoodie that is currently unfastened revealing a plain white t-shirt, BDU trousers, and black running shoes.

    End Of Description

    Spec is in the house! Er, she tries to enter the structure, anyway. If Elexxion has wired up the surrounding neighborhood with security cameras, they might have captured on film evidence of violence on her part. She ditched a bloodied heavy metal shower curtain rod and a garbage can lid in a designated trash receptacle a few blocks away from this location before she resumed her mid-morning jog around the streets of Inside. She's sweating up a storm.

    "What I require is that you deliver this to her before her surgery. And you aren't to disclose the origin of this hilt. Understood?"

    The Yithian's claw arm distends, bringing to light the fact that it has clamped this claw about the hilt of a sword with no blade. The hilt is an ancient, seemingly tarnished relic, worthless to the untutored eye. In truth, it is a powerful piece of Yithian technology.

    So she won't run out in her time there.
    In that case, one of the cloned orderlies will approach, attempting to simply... scoop some of Zero's biomass with a stainless steel shovel. This will be taken for extensive testing, including it's biological properties as well as medical services.

    Dave, meanwhile, is greeted with a smile from Naitiri. "David! Welcome back. Your adopted daughter and I are getting along swimmingly." She gestures toward Zero. "We've already made a little... deal. Will be staying with us, while Jane undergoes physical therapy?"

    Melody claps a hand over her mouth at the mention of Vesa's 'video research', perhaps trying not to bust out laughing. Her eyes crinkle at the corners, however, an obvious sign of merriment. She smiles more soberly when her hand lowers and says, "Vesa, what you need is a new perspective. Not research," She points at the Revenant, then herself while she talks. "Tell you what. How about I get you outfitted with some arty nerve endings? You can see for yourself what it's like."

    Well in the world where Andy is from such technic is possible, but people won't do them since they have technologie that could fullfill these task without needing so much energy. Also I shoud note that Andy's world has some kind of tech religion. They make things far away from things we know today.

    Just then, a flesh-and-blood voice bursts into the Cylon's auditory processors. It's male, high-pitched and loud. "Oh, look at you! How'd you get shot up like this?"

    Given that the Cylon is now logged into the Clinic's network, he'll note a display only he can see - a name, above the speaker's head. Adam. The speaker himself is a sharky looking man, complete with small fins on his head and large, black eyes. When he speaks, sharp teeth twitch behind his white-grey lips.

    Adam walks around 876, clearly impressed with his build. "Fully metallic... unrecognized alloy... armor plated. And a nice gun, to boot. What a wonderful thing you are." He tries to push the eight foot metal soldier along, seemingly excited to leave. "Come on then. You've got a makeover scheduled."

    It shall attempt to psychically commune with the salesman in utter silence, its words steeped in terseness.

    "I am...awaiting someone."

    It indicates, back to the front door.

    "She'll arrive in exactly three seconds from the time I finish this sentence."

    Precisely three seconds later, a girl does indeed enter the building! Wow!

    Description:

    Her glossy, lustrous, luxuriant naturally ultramarine blue hair is swept back in a silky-smooth, bouncy ponytail that floats about the base of of her neck, shifting left and right aerodynamically with her foxy, charismatic face. Her eyes are tinted emerald and shimmer with a coy, cogent glint. Her lips are lush and of a subdued fuchsia tone. Mounted atop her head are cute little (modified and enhanced) bat ears that are furry on the back (in addition to the usual human features) that are more often than not tucked away and obscured under a thick layer of her hair, seamlessly camouflaged and blended with it. Some of her teeth have grown fanged, honed down to a fine point and quite possibly hooked into a venom gland, though these are retractable canines interspersed among her mouth in strategic positions, so they won't hinder typical (or atypical) jaw movement in the least!

    She is a mutant with a spindly ultramarine tail! It is practically a slim bushy blue whip of a tail! And it wags as though it has a mind of its own. In fact, the female it belongs to pays it no heed as if she has yet to acknowledge its presence.

    On the palm and back of both of her hands are circular brands etched and delineated in a metallic substance that resembles the sheen and chemical inertness of gold. They are about as ornate and gaudy as can be, eternally reworking themselves again and again into altogether dissimilar depictions of symbols for the elements fire, earth, water, and air.

    On her neck there has been painted a breathtaking silver tattoo granted to her by her partner, Trium!

    Her imperfections, all contributing to her overall perfection, are marred, however. All across her body are little scars, nicks, and gashes, sundry wounds that are all too trivial in a medical sense but damaging in fashion-oriented perceptions. None have undermined the winsome quality of her face as of yet, however, as she's never endured a blow to her noggin that she had to patch up herself.

    The perspicacious gal isn't quite a ravishing beauty. Her body type dictates voluptuousness but with special emphasis on athleticism and functionality, but it has been hellaciously malnourished for years and is only now beginning to procure essential nutriment in excess of what it takes to survive. That said, her musculature is more developed than that of your top-of-the-line and of an altogether divergent design.

    She's clad in clothing that certainly doesn't adhere to the iconic vestments of a holy cleric (not that she is one). She's showcasing a simple crimson zip-up hoodie that is currently unfastened revealing a plain white t-shirt, BDU trousers, and black running shoes.

    End Of Description

    Spec is in the house! Er, she tries to enter the structure, anyway. If Elexxion has wired up the surrounding neighborhood with security cameras, they might have captured on film evidence of violence on her part. She ditched a bloodied heavy metal shower curtain rod and a garbage can lid in a designated trash receptacle a few blocks away from this location before she resumed her mid-morning jog around the streets of Inside. She's sweating up a storm.

    "What I require is that you deliver this to her before her surgery. And you aren't to disclose the origin of this hilt. Understood?"

    The Yithian's claw arm distends, bringing to light the fact that it has clamped this claw about the hilt of a sword with no blade. The hilt is an ancient, seemingly tarnished relic, worthless to the untutored eye. In truth, it is a powerful piece of Yithian technology.
    Thankfully for Spec, the Clinic's influence has not yet extended far enough to observe her deposit of evidence. She'll find lines of poor Red Zone folks waiting to be helped. However, her appearance garners some attention, mostly because they think her a returning customer.

    Meanwhile, the befuddled employee takes what he's been offered. He looks at it, befuddlement growing, and asks, "Um, sir, can I ask what this is about?" At least the Yith seems friendly.

    Vesa blinks. "Arty... nerve endings? My tactile senses are fine, though the areas you may be referring to are obviously not subjects of significant sensation on any regular basis. And---not to sound ungrateful---I do not suspect myself to be interested in coitus on a firsthand basis."
    One wonders who would be interested in sleeping with Vesa---she's pretty, but the way she just talked about intimacy with herself and others sounded more like a discussion of graphing calculators or something.
    A few Sensacles idly inspect Melody's ankles while others survey the area.

    "Well, don't say I never tried to help," Melody says with an impassive shrug. She prods Vesa in the chest anyway, however, not ready to let her go yet. "Sooo? What's this assignment that's got you so busy?"

    Ah, well! If the clinic security network is parochial, then there's only one thing left to be said about that. Vae victis!

    Well, shoot! These queue lines are long, I reckon! We're not even talking amusement park line on 1/2 off admission tickets day long. We're talking urban DMV long...right?

    Thanks to the look of the ragtag composition of these lines, Spec diffidently assesses the layout of the room, surveying all that she can on the lookout for anything she can spy that contains graphics or words related to "soup" or "kitchen".

    Upon proving to herself beyond a doubt that this is, in fact, Elexxion Industries Transhuman Clinic, Spec is struck speechless. There are way too many people jammed in here for her tastes! Geeze! Could she even hypothetically reserve a spot feet from the desk to pitch a tent if she camped out here overnight?

    No. There's gotta be another path by which she can circumvent the rabble. Like an express line for paying customers or something. Anything so that she doesn't have to wait around by those stinky hobos clogging up the works who might try to filch her money purse.

    Spec will proceed to aimlessly strut about the room, intent on blazing a trail around the NPCs to access the desk (if there's a shorter line to wait in).

    The Yithian stares at the salesman for but a second. It determines that the human, no matter how fastidious, wouldn't be able to distinguish a truth from an untruth if it were to deceive him at this time. Thus, it proceeds to lie to the human.

    "Familial affairs of some consequence. Her parental units expired while she was but a child. I was a friend of said parental units. They entrusted me with this heirloom to grant to her when I judged she was ready to receive it. Now is the time appointed for the transfer of this item to her possession."

    "Advice? What kind?" Melody asks, apparently willing to help. The fact that Vesa would ask her advice on something is rather endearing in itself.

    "Whoah, Doctor Smith. No need to rant. Dave it is," Naitiri holds up her hands in a pacifying gesture. In any case, she got her answer, and replies, "Oh well. Is there anything our Clinic can do for you, before you go? Something you'd like augmented?"

    As for Zero's goop, the sample will be shipped off immediately to Elexxion's military development branch. Such a small sample with such a large yield could be extremely useful for pacifying civilian populations.

    "O-kaaay. I'll get on that. Have a nice day sir," the clerk says, turning to walk toward Spec. He's happy to be away from that alien presence, and while normally he should've offered some daily premium once-in-a-lifetime deal before leaving, the clerk's glad he didn't.

    Spec is greeted by the employee with a smile, presuming he can intercept her. His nametag reads 'Gary'. "Here about surgery? Are you a returning customer?"

    As for soups or kitchens, neither are visible, and neither are available from this junction. There is a patient cafeteria in one of the Clinic's sister buildings, but Spec will just have to ask about that.

    "Well, I think part of the process is showing it to them," Melody says, clearly not well versed in this subject either. She's pitched to clients before, certainly, but that was either flirting or listing specifications in a sultry voice. "Words aren't usually enough, I think. So do something cool."

    She thinks.
    Something... cool...
    She nods, and gives one of her rare little smiles---Melody is one of the very few who can ever get her to do that.
    Thank you, Melody. I will begin looking into that immediately.
    Judging by the way she researched intimacy, I can see her browser history being flooded with homemade wrestling videos, screenshots from Medal of Callfield: Honor Battleduty 4, and rotund tweens trying to do skateboard tricks.
    I sort of feel sorry for her in that sense.

    As soon as Gary's focus shifts away from it, the Yithian will teleport away, seemingly degrading into empty air in a ray of white light to any observers unfamiliar with the science of technological teleportation.

    It cares for Spec, and it goes out of its way to secure her future, but there's only so much contact it is permitted to have with her without wiping her mind thereafter.

    But it is always with her in her dreams. Guiding her. Staying her hand when the need should arise. Putting her mind at ease. Alleviating her pains. Sharing its every secret with her. All because Spec wasn't like the wash of others her of her years. Her heritage blazed through her vessel, and someone needed to complement what she learned in day-to-day life with a faint light beginning to acknowledge her for what she truly was.

    Spec nods to the employee as he approaches, calm and collected. Okay. Just say that you'd like to have these scars removed. They'll simply graft on some skin or laser the scar tissue away. It might hurt, but they can't risk terminating you and expunging you from their logbooks while the procedure is going on. No. It'd murder their image. If anyone found out.

    Oh gods. They've enough money to guarantee with a three-year warranty that nobody finds out if they did do away with her, don't they! They're helping all these poor people who couldn't possibly afford any treatment, let alone expensive augs! They've money to burn!

    Oh no! Now she's gone and spooked herself again!

    "Um, hello there! Fine day we're having, isn't it? No, I'm not a returning client. But I am here for surgery! Surgery that isn't invasive. Like, uh, whatever it is you guys do to get rid of scar tissue. As long as no anesthetic that would impair my brain or motor functions is used. Whew! Is it hot in here or what?"

    I also seem to have neglected to mention that she's wearing thick black goggles designed to blot out light before it sears straight through her irises. She is afflicted with debilitating light sensitivity when not wearing them or some other form of sunglasses.

    Andy just shrugs as Maxwell explains and insults him.

    Let's hope Maxwell has some kind of humor otherwise he may really go look for them even thought there isn't such a book in this building.

    Given that the Cylon is now logged into the Clinic's network, he'll note a display only he can see - a name, above the speaker's head. Adam. The speaker himself is a sharky looking man, complete with small fins on his head and large, black eyes. When he speaks, sharp teeth twitch behind his white-grey lips.

    Adam walks around 876, clearly impressed with his build. "Fully metallic... unrecognized alloy... armor plated. And a nice gun, to boot. What a wonderful thing you are." He tries to push the eight foot metal soldier along, seemingly excited to leave. "Come on then. You've got a makeover scheduled."
    Being a robot, the Centurion probably won't see the monotony ominous. Especially since it's overseers, the Hybrids, usually speak in such a way.

    What it does find disturbing, however, is the cheerfulness in Adam's voice. The Centurion begins to follow the shark-like humanoid.

    The Centurion is led into the surgical wing, where a room has been made for 876's little 'makeover'. Adam, being the nanotech specialist, swiftly applies a coat of the microscopic machines to scour anything scarring 876's metal hide. Not just superficial wounds, any manufacturer labels or other obsolete ID's will be removed. Except, of course, for tags that mark him as an individual. Perhaps the number 876, if it's on his outside and not purely digital?

    In any case, this is all attempted. Not every machine is comfortable with having nanobots dumped on them out of a glowing canister.

    Jane looks bored in her new sweatpants and tanktop.
    "Report back in a few days, Dave! We'll keep her busy," Naitiri says, watching Dave enter the elevator before turning to his darling adopted daughter. "Tell me, Jane, have you ever had any shots? For small pox, the mumps, rabies?" Something tells her there's more diseases in the Nexus than on Earth. Jane may be in for a cruel medicinal regimen.

    Andy just shrugs as Maxwell explains and insults him.

    "I'm sorry, but the staff member seem to forgot to give me a copy of the dictonary I would need to know such things. You should look after them maybe they burnt them."

    Let's hope Maxwell has some kind of humor otherwise he may really go look for them even thought there isn't such a book in this building.

    "Clearly I do. This is MY project and each sientist knows what that means."
    [Andy & Maxwell] Whoops.

    "Books. You people are hilarious," Maxwell says with a tinny laugh, taking that as the joke and completely missing whatever point Andy was trying to make. "In any case, Mister Emeral, why don't we set you up with a virtual laboratory?"

    It cares for Spec, and it goes out of its way to secure her future, but there's only so much contact it is permitted to have with her without wiping her mind thereafter.

    But it is always with her in her dreams. Guiding her. Staying her hand when the need should arise. Putting her mind at ease. Alleviating her pains. Sharing its every secret with her. All because Spec wasn't like the wash of others her of her years. Her heritage blazed through her vessel, and someone needed to complement what she learned in day-to-day life with a faint light beginning to acknowledge her for what she truly was.

    Spec nods to the employee as he approaches, calm and collected. Okay. Just say that you'd like to have these scars removed. They'll simply graft on some skin or laser the scar tissue away. It might hurt, but they can't risk terminating you and expunging you from their logbooks while the procedure is going on. No. It'd murder their image. If anyone found out.

    Oh gods. They've enough money to guarantee with a three-year warranty that nobody finds out if they did do away with her, don't they! They're helping all these poor people who couldn't possibly afford any treatment, let alone expensive augs! They've money to burn!

    Oh no! Now she's gone and spooked herself again!

    "Um, hello there! Fine day we're having, isn't it? No, I'm not a returning client. But I am here for surgery! Surgery that isn't invasive. Like, uh, whatever it is you guys do to get rid of scar tissue. As long as no anesthetic that would impair my brain or motor functions is used. Whew! Is it hot in here or what?"

    I also seem to have neglected to mention that she's wearing thick black goggles designed to blot out light before it sears straight through her irises. She is afflicted with debilitating light sensitivity when not wearing them or some other form of sunglasses.
    Gary seems surprised at her answer. Well she certainly looked like one. Although some of it does seem less than likely, for a Clinic patron. He adopts a helpful, happy tone of voice, saying, "Okay. How do you intend to pay for this, Miss..." He's got a hand on his headset, and he stares at Spec intently. His eyes flicker left to right, as if writing on something in his head. "Would you like to apply for contract work? Augments are free, as is room and board, if you work for us."

    Thank you, Melody. I will begin looking into that immediately.
    Judging by the way she researched intimacy, I can see her browser history being flooded with homemade wrestling videos, screenshots from Medal of Callfield: Honor Battleduty 4, and rotund tweens trying to do skateboard tricks.
    I sort of feel sorry for her in that sense.
    "Vesa. Honey. What're you thinkin' of?" Melody asks, not wanting to get reprimanded for sidetracking her fellow Revenant. She doesn't want Vesa making herself look like an idiot, either, and much more importantly. Defective Revs don't last long on the Frontier, and 'defective' has a very broad definition.

    In a dream I found a place
    of rotting meat and eldritch grace
    and looked upon his primordial face
    and from my thoughts could not erase
    that sense of time that sense of space
    and my heart the darkness did embrace.

    I will research the common public conception of "cool and follow it accordingly...
    Or is that not what I'm supposed to do?

    She finds it best to defer to Melody in these matters.
    Perhaps my methods of research are not sufficient... especially on such a strange, subjective, nebulous concept as "cool".
    She frowns a little, not really liking that fact; she prefers to be effective.

    ((I'll post for Rael and his group later. I'm not entirely sure how to word things for them at the moment.))

    Through the door, a tall figure, resembling a clawed human with a wolf's head, made of metal, possibly some sort of powersuit, though it could also be a robot, enters, looking around curiously.

    The Clinic can probably tell that it's sending out shielded signals of some sort, and picking up a very faint broadcast from elsewhere in the Nexus, also heavily shielded.
