"Hi there!

I'm Ralph Mebbit, a researcher at UC. Part of the team that first found your HM eaters, as a matter of fact. I see you've been feeding them well, none of those we saw in the wild had reached that size.

At any rate - We gave you our entire supply, thinking it'd be trivial to catch a couple more in case we needed to. Now, though, the whole area's in quarantine, and we actually needed to run a few tests on one of the critters.

Would it be possible to spare one for our research?"

Howard: "I think we can spare one, yes. I think I'll need to see some ID first, though."

About half an hour later with some talking and calls with UC, you have a caged corruption eater stowed in a UC warehouse (different from Claire's station).

The corruption eater has a large pile of turnips to eat to keep it occupied, so it should be fine to be left alone for some time.


Time to visit Aldente?

You take a seat at a table and begin looking over the menu.

The atmosphere in Aldente is cozy as usual, a relaxing family-friendly space, though at this hour it's mostly people on their lunch breaks.

As you skim over the various pasta dishes, you see the door open and a familiar not-Claire walk in, who spots you and eagerly waves before walking on over.

Aldente: "Hi Ralph! It's been a while since I've seen you. How are things going?"

The team and I have been up in Vellum recently. Seems we sort of re-established contact with up there."

Aldente: "Interesting!"

She takes a seat in front of you and begins looking at a menu as well, and soon you have your orders placed.

Aldente: "What's it like up there? Kamilla's in charge of things now, right?"

"Yup, she is. Castellum 2 is, big. Biggest city I've ever been to. The Pillar where the Second operates from is incredible too.

Aldente: "I must say, I'm a bit jealous of how much you get to travel for your job. Even if I didn't have any responsibilities here, traveling for me would be quite troublesome."

"Mm, that could pose some problems yeah. Maybe a spatial construct? You'd have to get it custom ordered and I don't know if you could cross the border with telepathy though. Maybe with a very custom order.
Though I guess all that would still be 'quite troublesome'."

Aldente: "Quite expensive, yes.

Find any fun and exciting secrets up in Vellum? With your habit of digging into old and dangerous topics, I expect you've found something riveting up there."

You ever heard of the name George Vincent Bernard?"

Aldente: "Hm. It does ring a bell."

The food is brought out, and Aldente slowly begins eating while staring out the window.



Aldente: "A bishop of Caelum, I believe. Experienced the beginning of the Corruption."

Aldente: "He was involved in some burning of heretics, literal or figurative I'm not sure. That's about as much as I can remember."

"I see. I'll take it. Probably better than I'll get from most of the books lying around.
So. You really wanna know what I've been up to? I warn you, some of the stuff I've learned is uh... well, I wouldn't have chosen to learn it. My life is, considerably more complicated now."
