Veil Containment, Neomuna
The Guardian decrypts the twelfth research log from Veil Containment's archive.
Chioma Esi: Chioma Esi, log... whatever. The Warmind has reactivated. Our base on Hyperion detected network activity. He found us. Classified our location "Nefele Stronghold". We already estimated that Rasputin has attempted remote interference with our network. Our research. It can't. I won't let what we've learned here ruin more lives. I'm going to send Stargazer off-world to... to deal with the problem. They can take Lakshmi with them and... do whatever. As long as it's out of the city. Out of my sight. It's a risk, taking an action off-world. Exposing ourselves. But we have to. What we've done here has to be quarantined. The Veil is too much power. Too much for anyone.
Nimbus: Stargazer! That puts the time of this recording around the foundation of the Cloud Striders. Chioma must have been... REALLY old.
Osiris: And Stargazer is the one responsible for redacting Nefele Stronghold from Rasputin's records... or Maya by proxy with Lakshmi. Fascinating. There's two more logs left; once we've decrypted them, I will need to take time to contemplate the larger picture they present.
Nimbus: [exhales] You and me both.
