"Not too bad, actually. Bezel used some magic to make it hurt less.

What about you, Claire? How are you feeling?"

"Well. You were pretty confused a few days ago, and strangely smug when we found the Harvester's hideout. I, was actually a little worried back then.

But, recently you've seemed more like yourself. I'm glad. I missed you a bit, you know."

"Hm.
Well.
The one time when we were coming back from reporting on the Har- er, Aldente's lair. When you said something about your "work getting much harder". After that you gave me a, uh, grin. From the top of the stairs. Seemed more like a uh, taunting, maybe spiteful grin. Not a tongue out teasing kind.
So, that's when I contacted Olivia to come help.

Aside from that... Nothing really springs to mind. You've been you as I know you."

Claire: "A-ah, that's good to hear. I was just, worried how much the, Aldente, was messing around with me."

She stands there awkwardly for a few seconds, until movement in the hallway snaps her into attention.

Claire: "Goodnight!"

The witch researcher quickly paces away while Bezel walks into view, looking in her direction and that at you. You get a small smirk from the blonde before she heads into her own room.



~



Morning. A breakfast of rations again, with just you, Bezel, and Claire at the table. Mel and Carson are working, while Kalob, Byron, and Olivia left to visit Elanor.

The three of you eat in silence for a bit until there's knocking at the door. Bezel goes to answer it, and returns shortly with a crude book of some sort. Wooden plates for the covers and spine with holes drilled to allow cord threaded through to hold in a thick stack of papers.

Bezel sets the strange book on the table between the three of you.

Bezel: "Soldier delivered that. Said it was for the 'ones going to Silo'."

You carefully open up the book, with the others leaning over for a better view.

The first page is neatly hand-written -


This is a compilation of my research efforts. Hopefully it will aid in finding the information I seek:

How to build the component that manages the spirit-body connection and connect an existing spirit to it

How to repair the component if it is damaged



Turning to the next page, it appears to be outlining the details of an experiment with the spirit-body connection components harvested from humans. Flipping through the book, it looks like the entire thing is experiments, data, and conclusions.

You flip through the book a little more. All hand-written text, diagrams, and pictures.

Bezel: "This is valuable information. Not something you can get without, lots of people dying."

She flips through more pages, occasionally stopping to read.


Bezel: "We should be very careful who we show this to."

"Definitely. Dangerous knowledge, and dangerous evidence.
... I kind of, want to read through it, to learn. Spirits ARE related to alchemy, or at least that old lupus text said they were used together."

You read at the current page - two drawn items, one of a fleshy mass you assume is the spirit-body connection brain chunk, the other a weird sculpture, some 'Alterian Structure', next to it. Several lines are drawn from the brain chunk to the Alterian Structure, and from the explanations on the page, you can gather that it's some sort of connection map.

Bezel: "Wouldn't hurt for you to read it, just remember to stuff the information into the vault. It makes sense for us to know a decent amount so we know what we're trying to get from the spirit specialist."

You remove Kalob from the vault - no longer necessary to keep that secret.

Bezel: "The side effects only appear when you stuff excessive amounts of commonly accessed information in it. Has to keep managing the usage."

Bezel: "Sure. We should probably go into a room though, in case the others suddenly return."

Claire appears to be slightly disappointed.
