March 11th, 2045 - 7:03 AM - Laboratory 3CH0, Lead Researcher Dalmont’s office

Ma’am. I can hear you.

No ma’am? I’m afraid not. The last I heard from Heller or Richardson, they were addressing a security breach within laboratory Echo 5, Alma.

M-Ma’am? I… Don’t believe I can answer that with any sort of clarity. I wasn’t made aware of what they were working on there, as stated within our guidelines, set by you and professor Menagerie.

I understand ma’am, I’ll have Leeds get on it. Do we move to extermination or re-acquisition— Oh. Yes ma’am. Are you sure? Would you be okay with such a waste of… Resources, ma’am?

Oh. I understand, yes ma’am. … Do, we… Have any more information? What is it— Ah, yes ma’am. I appreciate it!

Of course ma’am, dossier received. From my sister’s journal no less…

Oh! No ma’am, we’re siblings by circumstance, not by blood. Same college.

… Oh. I- Yes ma’am. I see. Thank you. I … Appreciate your letting me know. I’ll um… Arrange a funeral, soon.

Yes. Yes okay. I appreciate it. Should— Should I let the group of them know? I can send them to The Stoneworks…? The twins that run it could help trace— Yes ma’am.

Yes ma’am. I’ll send a runner to them… I apologize for the, ah, inconvenient circumstances. I’ll… I'll speak to you later ma’am, if there’s nothing else?

Yes ma’am. I’ll… Make a note. Are we sending, uh, the other ones then…?
. . . . .

Yes— Erm— Yes ma’am. Yes ma’am, I’m sorry. I’ll make a note. Thank you.

Thank you for your time, Miss Menagerie.

It took some time for the little weasel-like man to scramble from the outskirts of the Undercity to the beginnings of The Stoneworks. His mustache twitched, his eyes darted about, and he leaned his head back with a laborious sigh.

And a swift burst of mana flashed up into the air, invisible to the normal eye, but unmistakable to ‘those in the know’.
And then he waited, eager to give his message and scramble back home.
