The Other Banner Saga

 

This morning as I lay in bed wondering what to do with my long weekend I decided I should do something creative today. In my half-asleep state I was thinking about the Banner Saga and my brain made this little connection to Bruce Banner, AKA the Hulk. Sometimes inspiration strikes at the weirdest times. Anyway, here’s the image. From my mind to yours.TheBruceBannerSaga

Orpheus – Flood

Excerpts from the journal of Connor Galloway, an employee of Orpheus and member of Crucible 7.

 

Alaskan Airspace, October 19, 2013.

Descending into the bowels of the cruise ship began to feel like deja vu. The first four floors, all belonging to passengers, looked identical if you ignored the large lettered sign which told us what deck we were on. From the stairwell we would see long hallways, with doors either side, that stretched down towards the front of the ship. We made of note of Deck C, where David Clarke’s room was located, and carried on down.

The fifth floor we visited, Deck G, was partially submerged and water was trickling out of doorways and dripping from the roof. If the constant groaning of the ship wasn’t enough of a reminder that we needed to hurry that sight brought it home.

I think I was just looking for something else to focus on other than Lehto’s situation.

Orpheus – Good Intentions

Excerpts from the journal of Connor Galloway, an employee of Orpheus and member of Crucible 7.

 

Richmond Virginia, October 18, 2013.

Last night’s stake-out wasn’t like what you see in the movies. We found the house in a nice area downtown. The houses were mostly two-storeys with adjoining garages and well manicured lawns. Perfectly middle-class.

Lehto’s house stood out as soon as it came into view. The grass had been left to grow long and the mailbox was overflowing with unread letters. A light was on in one of the upper rooms but otherwise the house was dark. We pulled up across the road and decided to take a slow approach. Dan slunk across the road and did a quick check around the house. From the car we could see he was having a hard time seeing in the windows but eventually he returned to the front door.

MISSION #0794

MISSION TYPE: Retrieval and/or Fumigation

TARGET: Mathew Lehto and Potential Unknown Ghost Accomplices

EMPLOYER: Orpheus

BACKGROUND
Orpheus Group recruited Mathew Lehto three years ago in one of our earliest crucibles when he was 27 years old.  Prior to recruitment he attended a prestigious Ivy League university on a need-based scholarship.  He worked his way through graduate school with several highly competitive internships, and left with an MBA in finance.  After graduation, Lehto worked as a financial advisor with Morgana Financial, a high-profile investment bank; his first NDE was at the hands of a bank client, who, hit hard by the recession, responded with a shooting spree in the investment office.  The incident left Lehto and three staff members critically wounded.
