Markesha, Orson, and the prisoners make their way through the wreckage left in the wake of Link’s Wall Bug romp.
Some of the other prisoners have a bone to pick with Orson, but Markesha’s not having it.
Markesha, Orson, and Link clash with different strategies for how to get the restraints off.
While most electrical systems in Outer Trinity are well shielded against static discharge, many systems inside the Wall are less protected. This is due to two primary factors. First, that the environmental conditioning systems in the wall will prevent charge buildup; and secondly that hardening the system against overloads is someone else’s job.
Link’s remote piloting skills could use a little work.
Everett and Constance’s conversation takes an alarming turn!
Orson helps Markesha calm her nerves, and Markesha has a brain fart.
Markesha’s left Ifrit in a smoking heap, but her nerves are still fried.
Ifrit suddenly finds himself wishing he wasn’t holding a highly conductive baton.
Ifrit’s set his sights on Markesha, and it’s not looking good.
(Content Notice: Blood, Murder) Ifrit gives no mercy, even to his own.
The baton is Ifrit’s favored weapon. While other officers in the HSF leaned toward firearms, Ifrit found he enjoyed the more personal approach. HSF batons were usually used for last ditch effort crowd control measures. Each is made of collapsible metal, and depending on the bearers strength can deal blows that can split skin or fracture skulls. Ifrit went above and beyond, commissioning a special baton with a hand crafted bayonet hidden inside.
