Wild Hunt


Clearance Beta/Throne

Task Force Charon, you are being redirected immediately for important operations on Mars. A science student at the university of Valles New-Shanghai has recently undergone a rapid personality shift and disappeared, analysis agrees that the rapid changes and obsessions are consistent with Basilisk Hack influence.

If there are human agencies employing Basilisk Hacks on Mars, we will need to locate and deal with them. If there are TITAN Basilisk Hacks in circulation, we will need to shut them down and investigate their wider plan. Step one will be to locate the missing scientist.

At the moment we have conducted no further investigatory steps in order to avoid drawing attention, treating it as a simple missing persons' case and tangling the local law enforcement in bureaucracy. You will have the clearance necessary to investigate the disappearance of Manami Kobayashi, track her down, identify the source of her odd behavior and, if possible, stop it.

Hades out.
