    [Public Lobby]

    Writing on something in his head? How chilling! Implanting a tablet into someone's eyeball or brain and hooking it up to one's optic nerve sounds...excruciating and terrifying. Ouch!

    "I'm...uncomfortable with the idea of any stranger, however talented, gifted, and accomplished your staff might very well be, installing an augmentation into me. That's not to discount your corporate integrity, but my girlfriend is a nanotech authority already, so if I'm hurting for any augs I'd rather she took care of it. I have...special needs. Light blinds me and something bad happens whenever I'm hugged, so I'm more selective than most on who has power over my body when I'm out."

    Spec tensely kneads the back of her neck. She recognizes that it'd be in her best interests to break the news to the salesman gently. Kind of ease him into it. She's not looking to set the stage for her to rival Maggy in terms of cyborg swag. However...

    "That said, I might be interested in this 'contract work' if it caters to what I'm searching for in a career. I'm more than able and willing to pay for this surgery with plat coins. But, on that note, I am on the lookout for a steady job. Erm, a steadier job than that which I've had in days of late."

    By that she means conning people out of all their hard-earned material wealth and spearheading hits brokered by some shady characters.

    "It just, y'know, depends on what I'd be contractually obligated to do and what I'd contractually be exempted from. Like would I have to kill anyone at your behest and legalities akin to that. The wage I'd be earning is a deciding factor too."

    "And the name's Spec by the way. That's spelled as it is pronounced minus the 'k'."

    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.

    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.
    High above the newcomers head, deep inside the alien Core, the Auditors chatter to one another. Not out loud, of course - inside eachother's heads. "Picking up some primmy signal. Scoping us out. Sending and receiving."

    "Source check."

    "Lobby. See?"

    "Patricia's out for questioning. Iaito, take this one?"

    "Confirmed."

    Another probe is made. To see if the 'signal' is by radio or going over Nexnet. If it's the former, they'll have to have someone tend to this newcomer in the flesh. If it's the latter, they'll send out an attempt at communication.

    Lobby - Spec

    "Sorry for the misunderstanding, Miss Spec. Augment is a catch-all term. Removing scars is, put simply, a cosmetic augmentation," Gary explains mechanically. He's a very composed young man. "The company doesn't need hitmen, ma'am. We're looking for laborers, lab assistants, tram operators, and security personnel, among other things. Though unwillingness to accept invasive augmentation severely limits your options. It might be best to just pay in platinum."

    The signals are encrypted radio broadcasts, two of which are on a broad range of frequencies and non-directional, most likely attempts to reestablish communications with something, while the third is only on one frequency and appears to have a specific destination, though all three signals appear to be identical in terms of content, though whether or not the message is the same one each time is impossible to tell.

    The incoming signal is quite similar to the third one that the thing is sending, and seems to originate from the point that that one is being sent to, though as its contents differ from those of the other three, it would appear that it's not simply a ping-and-acknowledge/query system.

    The encryption itself should prove to be a challenge even for the Clinic, as its algorithm is constantly changing in a truly random fashion, and is extraordinarily complex in each iteration.

    Depending on what they were able to discover in their probing, they may also have been able to find that, while it's not using it at the moment, the figure does have the ability to connect to Nexnet.

    The Centurion does not mind in the slightest. It is, however, interested in the nanobots. In that case, the scarring on the cranium and arms are "healed." The nanobots won't find any sort of identifier or tags, however. All Centurions that serve the same function have completely identical chassis, to further reinforce the idea that Centurions are mindless tools. Any sort of identifier is digital in nature.

    During this time, the Centurion does absolutely nothing. It'll stand as still as a statue.

    Welp, that clinches it! Spec'll be excoriated before she consents to having more mechanical gizmos fused to her body! Arriving at that verdict was quite a cinch! She cannot sincerely say that she didn't expect that answer either.

    "Plat it is, then."

    Spec confirms, extracting a compact purse from a hidden inner pocket of her hoodie so that she can pay in cash up front before the salesman can take to questioning her on the transaction or anything.

    "How many ounces?"

    Spec follows up, gloved hands squarely resting on her ample (for her build) hips.

    At the proper angle, the salesman might glimpse a light glancing off of a metal sheet anchored in her left arm.

    Melody just sorta looks at her funny. "What?"

    EIAC - Labs

    "Oh. Well, in that case, might I take a sample of your blood?" Naitiri asks. These people were proving more useful by the moment. Certainly the Clinic had immuno-boosters, but Umbrella sounded like it was quite advanced for it's time.

    Andy & Maxwell

    "Well, we could always work things up digitally and then synthesize the end-result, but if you'd like a physical labspace..." Maxwell shrugs. "By all means. The ladies here can show you the way."

    Out of the blue, a trio of Clinic personal round the corner. The first two appear to be standard security personnel. One is relatively normal, with a headset 'round her face and a pistol at her hip. The other is tall, half-robotic, with a black visor and various limb-based augs. Both clones of the same person, of course, but it's hard to tell.

    Between them, looking pleased as punch and smiling broadly, is Andy's new lab assistant. She's a short, slender young lady, with close-cropped blonde hair and dancing blue eyes. She's wearing a simple white jumpsuit, and her legs appear to be... odd. Past the knees, they're completely metal, and they end in a slim metal point. By all rights, she shouldn't be able to balance on them, let alone stand up.

    "Mr. Emeral! Is there anything at all I can do to make your experience in the lab more pleasant?" She squeaks spritely, shifting her 'feet'. Where they meet the floor, a small blue light appears, and the air shimmers before stabilizing. "Would you like windows? A little lounge? Anything that'll help you be comfortable!"

    [Lobby]

    The Auditors do not attempt to decrypt this stranger's signal. It's against company policy, or at the very least, the new Clinic's policy. They instead patch through to Nexnet - a process which irks the Auditors, given the tremendous 1.7 second lag they experience - and attempt to make contact.

    Iaito's voice comes loud and clear, provided the comm request is accepted. "How can Elexxion help you today?"

    [Public Lobby]

    "2.5 ounces," Gary states, paying little attention to her hips, but rather to that metal plate. "Would your girlfriend be interested in a position here? Good nanotech scientists are hard to find."

    [Surgical Wing]

    Unless the Centurion objects, he'll then undergo the second stage of his modification. Adam will show him to a long, dark chamber lined with mechanical arms. All the arms seem to be fitted with high-intensity airbrushes. "This is the fun part. A nice coat of Sec black n' blue. Dexter will be on the other side to deal with your other mods." He attempts to pat the centurion on the shoulder. "Best of luck."

    2.5 ounces. The going rate of 2.5 ounces of pure plat is, oh, approximately 3.25k USD in today's coinage market according to the online estimates I've consulted. Spec should be carrying just enough plat to cover the surgery on her right now, so she'll pay the price in full upfront to the salesman if she is able and he has a fair scale available.

    The surgery isn't too costly, but it ain't exactly a steal either.

    "Well... I dunno. I'll have to be sure to ask her 'bout it later on tonight... But she's an immortal, so she's probably one of, if not the best, nanotechnician out there."

    Spec idolizes Trium like nothing else in the world and has no qualms with singing her praises whenever the opportunity should arise.

    Meanwhile, wherever the salesman has stashed the hilt of the Yithian should start to heat up considerably until the hilt itself is luke-warm, reacting to Spec's spirit and attempting to push itself into her hand.

    The Centurion doesn't seem to mind. It's slightly disturbed by the pat on the shoulder, but it doesn't visibly respond. What will the paint scheme look like when it is done?

    "Save lives. That's our job, Jane. I'm sure Umbrella had other priorities, of course, but Elexxion has a lot of frontiermen that could use a boost to their immune systems," Naitiri explains with that same clinical smile.

    Maxwell is already hurrying off, when Andy turns to face his new entourage. The Frontier CEO is currently managing six other surrogates on four different worlds. A busy man, to say the least. "Best of luck, then."

    The lab assistant that greets Dr. Emeral is quite doll-like. Flawless flesh, a tiny nose that seems to flush near the tip, and an almost perpetual blush in her cheeks. "Are you sure, Doctor? We have many accommodations available for our scientists, and Mr. Maxwell has marked you as a Priority Asset!"

    The paint scheme is prominently police blue, with black detail and a bright white '876' on the chestplate. To the left of this 'nametag', there's three letters: ESA. Elexxion Security Agency, should the Centurion access some of the now unrestricted databanks open to him.

    After being blinded by a cloud of paint for about 30 seconds, 876 is on the other side. He's in a new lab environment, with a clear row of modifications laid out. A tall, dark-haired fellow is standing here, checking over the mods. He's got a pair of headphones on, not that it matters.

    "Care to sit? We'll get this over with," Dexter says, without looking up. "You're not gonna explode if I stick a magnet on you, will ya?"

    "She'd fit right in, I assure you," Gary says, apparently very confident in the Clinic's abilities. As for the platinum, I was under the impression that the going rate was between 1000-2000$ per ounce. Let's call it the low end of the scale, for the purposes of keeping up the Clinic's 'cheap augment' reputation. Perhaps reduce the platinum to 2 ounces, even.

    "There was something else ma'am. A, uh, creature came in earlier. Said this was for you." He hadn't forgotten. He pulls the hilt from his back pocket - where it'd poking him in the backside, with it's apparent 'eagerness' - and hands it to Spec.

    But...
    She starts to get visibly more unsettled.
    Doesn't it make sense for me to go see them? If they intend to work with the Clinic, I could assist in making the process go more smoothly...
    What she doesn't want to admit is that the idea of missing the chance to see someone from before---someone she knew and worked with daily before the confusing, straining mess that ended in her staggering into the Clinic's arms, starving and destitute---instills in her feelings she doesn't understand how to deal with.
    I can write up a full report if they want me to, but I feel I have to go see whoever from my old unit has arrived...

    "Action? I don't know, sir. Priority Asset just means that you get whatever you want! Full access to all Clinic resources!" Andy's new assistant suddenly wraps her arms around the two Sec-workers flanking her, grinning. They try to extricate themselves from her vice grip, but it is to no avail. "And these two ladies will be guarding you twenty-four seven! So get used to them!"

    "Arright. Well, you better go, if you wanna get em'," Melody says, shoving her off. There's no turning Vesa around now, so she may as well push her along. With that, the pretty Rev hurries off back to her post.

    Vesa's request, given that Iaito was a little busy to begin with, is granted. He's happy to pass this new client off to a workaholic Revenant. Although that bit about her unit is recorded for monitoring purposes.

    "You got it. No brain magnets. Would you mind if we, uh, poked around in there?" Dexter asks, pointing at the Centurion's head with a ballpoint pen. "The Clinic pays foreign AI's big for first-hand data. You'd get a nice commission."

    "Patching you through now," Iaito says, already having wordlessly communicated with Vesa. The Revenant is waved on quickly by security personnel. The two former comrades will likely be together in moments.

    Vesa hails this old teammate of hers, wondering which it is. Ms. Harker? Alia? Jenna?
    Chloe?
    She tells herself not to get her hopes up on that last one as she begins speaking.

    "Black Irukandji, this is Red Wolf. I came to the Nexus with Green Chameleon through unknown means approximately a month ago in local time. We were unable to locate the rest of the team on arrival, and have been searching for them since then. As means of getting back to our world are, to the best of our knowledge, non-existent, I came to the EITC to inquire about becoming employed here,"
    Alia responds calmly, slipping back into the formal, emotionless, tone she used to use for such reports, before, after a moment, continuing in a more normal fashion. "And Iru? It's good to hear from you. We've been worried."

    Alia will find the incoming Vesa's appearance---bell, kama, Sensacles---familiar but sleeker and more advanced.
    Glad to see you're well, Wolf. I wondered about your safety as well.
    ...
    How is Chl---Chameleon?

    Alia probably knows that there was... something resembling a closeness between Chloe and Vesa.
    She hovers in, lowering her float height to put her hands on her old teammate's shoulders.

    Alia does indeed know that; Vesa may be aware that Alia and Chloe are also rather close.

    "She's doing okay. She's had a bit of a hard time adjusting to here, but nothing really worrying. I mean, she doesn't talk to anyone but me for the most part, but... It's Chameleon. She hardly talked to people other than Ms. Harker or us even back at Tempest,"
    Wolf responds, her helmet opening to reveal to any non-Vesa Elexxion personell who might be watching that the occupant of the suit is a pretty young woman with dark blue hair and violet eyes, and also that she's smiling broadly, and looks like she'd give Vesa a hug out of relief and happiness, were it not for the fact that she doubts her teammate would take it well.

    The Centurion considers this for a moment; gaining favor with the employers would be a good thing, but at the same time it is hesitant to divulge everything within its databanks. That information would include details about the nuclear attacks on the Twelve Colonies, his own little escape after his telecenphalic inhibitor was brought offline, and (of course) the nature of the telecenphalic inhibitor.

    Vesa's bell slides back and settles into standby position on her back, revealing her silvery hair and grey eyes, along with her pallor---more "needs an undertaker" than "needs a tan".
