Edward, I have some concerns I would like to discuss with you. Concerns about Mayor Hundred and where his leadership is leading this community. I hate to do this to you, but you're the only one who can give me a unbiased assessment of the situation. I need to know if he actually has a plan to deal with Vulcanus. If not, then there's some other things we'll need to talk about.

I want to speak to all to voice my support for what Geddoe said. He's right, we're all in danger and we have to start accepting that and doing something about it and not individually. All to often we've failed to share information and it's cost us. I don't want to see that happen anymore. I don't want us to be driven out of this city and this world by Vulcanus. To do that we will have to come together, however much arguing it will take.

Now I know getting a community like ours with so many to work as a single unit would be foolish, but many of you have people you will follow. What I would like is for those leaders in the community to meet with together with me at Rossum within the next few days to discuss what we as a community might do together about Vulcanus. We can't function as a military, but we can function as a republic, sending those we most trust to lead us to tackle this. Even this will be difficult, I acknowledge that, but if we don't take at least this step then we will be completely unprepared for whatever might be coming.

Besides offering to host this event I will also extend the support of myself and my companies to whatever course of action this meeting determines to be best for the community.

So all are welcome and I look forward to seeing I hope many of you very soon.

I am looking for a tutor for my ward. Someone skilled in magic who can help guide her development in this area. This is something I wish I could teach her myself, but I can't. I'm honestly far more in the dark about the subject than her. So while I know many of you with this talent are very busy if one of you could make the time to help I would be very grateful.

[Boyd is standing behind his desk at Rossum HQ, a fantastic view of city visible through the window behind him.]

I want to announce that as of Monday August sixth, Rossum and Global Protection Services will no longer be doing any business with any current, or future signatory to the ImBargo Act. All current leases and licenses for Rossum devices, technology, medicine, and research will be terminated. Furthermore companies that do business in these countries that license Rossum technology will not be allowed to use, or supply that technology withing the borders of those countries. I am also withdrawing any and all funds we have invested in the infrastructure of these nations. If I as a person am not welcome on their shores then I will not allow them to benefit from the hard work of my employees, or my money.

I am aware this will negatively affect many people and for that I am sorry, but because these nations refuse to extend to us a basic human right and seem to view us as a threat, I feel I have no other option. It is only one short step from banning us from their territory to seizing our assets and I will not endanger my people, or my company by leaving open facilities in places I think that could happen. If and when these nations change their minds and attitudes toward ImPorts I will be happy to reopen business with them.

I would also like to ask all other business owners, ImPort and Native, to join me in this boycott. Together we might be able to convince them of how wrong this Act is. Thank you.

[Later on in the evening this message is released to all major new outlets.]

Since the Porter has been kind enough to return Dr. Topher Brink to us I wanted to make an announcement officially promoting him to Vice President and also giving him share in the company. His absence and return has made it clear I need to prepare for the possibility it could happen to me and this is just one of the steps I'll be taking to ensure that Rossum will be here to stay and that all of you who work for me will always have a job.

Also I'm going to be visiting all your departments soon hopefully to see how you are all doing. Don't worry it's not going to be anything formal. I just want to know if there's anything that any of you need, or suggestions for improvements you might have.

Thank you.

Edward, I know you and the Mayor are always looking for ways to advance our community just as I am. That's why I'm contacting you now. Recently I had a conversation with a young lady who's powers like many others as some severe side effects. In her case it's extreme pain and difficulty breathing. Now I'm going to do what I can for her, but she thought, and I agreed, that surely with all the scientific expertise among our community someone must be able to do something to alleviate, or eliminate her symptoms.

I'm willing to do what I can to that end, but I think we could make much better progress if this was a group effort. The difficulty there being I do not have as many contacts amongst my fellow Imports of business as I'd like. I'm sure you do however. I'm also sure you can see how you and the Mayor taking the lead on this with my support in the background would benefit you both. With Captain Bauer's arrest we need some positive news out there and this is exactly the sort of thing we could use to do that. Not only would it distract from the trouble the police are having, but it could also calm the natives as well. If they knew we ourselves were trying to moderate our powers it might buy us some goodwill we desperately need right now. It would also provide us an opportunity to try and answer some questions about the Porter without seeming like a threat.

Now, I'm well aware of chances of anything to actually solve my young friend's problem are slim, but with all the other possible benefits it still seems worthwhile. Of course if you think my analysis in this case is wrong I'll take your word for it and we won't discuss the matter any further. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this, Edward. Whatever they may be.

Well, I'm a bit embarrassed to have to do this, but here goes.

I need a date for Mr. Pinkerton's fundraising and I am hoping someone in our little community would oblige me. Don't worry, I don't have any romantic ideas about the evening. I'm just tired of going to these events on my own and feel it's time I changed that. I'll of course be providing the car, dinner, the tickets, and hopefully entertaining conversation for whomever is interested.

[The communicator turns on, showing Boyd sitting comfortably at the desk in his office.]

Everyone I have an announcement that I’d like to make and that affects everyone in our community. As you all know the Porter recently sent back my friend Doctor Topher Brink. Doctor Brink was also the administrator of the Rossum Import Clinic. Since then the staff has done an admirable job of adapting to a difficult situation one I am going to alleviate today. City I’d like to present Mrs. Andromeda Tonks as the new administrator of the Rossum Import Clinic. Mrs. Tonks has years of experience in hospitals in own world and is the best candidate I could find to fill this critical position within our community.

Now with that out of the way I’ll get out of the way and let Mrs. Tonks speak and answer any questions you the community might have. Thank you. Mrs. Tonks?


[Boyd stands up from his chair and leaves the camera’s sight to make room for Andromeda to take his place.]

Ah, yes.

[Try not to look like such a deer in the headlights, Andromeda. You do have years of experience, after all. She slides into view of the camera, flashing a small smile.]

As Mr. Boyd has mentioned, I will be taking over as the administrator of the Import Clinic. It’s my hope that I can keep the clinic running as smoothly as Doctor Brink was able to during his stay in the City. An Import-run clinic is, now more than ever, a place that we can keep safe no matter what the City throws at us.

If there -- are any questions or if you have any suggestions, I’d like to hear them -- now, and in the future.


[There, all right. That wasn’t so bad. She lets the camera run for a moment or two longer, then clicks off the feed.]

((OOC: Blue is Boyd, Green is Andromeda. Feel free to comment here to one or both of them!))

I'm sad to say that after weeks of waiting that I have to confirm that Topher Brink has been ported out. I should have announced this earlier, but I was holding out hope that his absence was only temporary. I want to assure everyone that the clinic will continue to be open and ready to serve the community.


Andromeda, I need to speak with you right away.

Ms. Hooper? Your friend Mr. Sherlock mentioned you might be interested in working at my company? I happen to have a position open right now and I'd like to discuss it with you.

You both worked with Deadshot and were successful as team for the most part. Even though he's gone now I'd like to continue our business relationship. There will be a monthly salary plus bonuses per mission as well as access to the facility I had constructed for the team. You'll also have the best healthcare available through Rossum.

If you are interested in this offer contact me through this encryption.

Mr. Mayor, I need to ask that you release one of the Skrull bodies to my people. We have the best medical technology in the world and the best people to use it. If there's anything to be found they'll find it. I know there's been a bout of controversy about how to handle their remains and I doubt this will help at first, but once we have something we can release to the public and show them we did it for the right reasons. It also might calm them down, knowing we're doing all we can to protect them. We can also show Imports and natives working together on this project, something I think we can agree is desperately needed right now.

Am I asking this as a favor to save time and possibly vital evidence. If you think that might cost too much goodwill then I'll file the needed motions with the court to have the bodies released if I have to. I completely understand if that has to be the case, but please do consider this carefully.

I'm sure you noticed the news report. Considering how few creatures leave fang marks on corpses drained of blood I think we can both agree this is probably related to our target. That's why I'm authorizing funds for you to take the team to Berlin and find whoever he's deployed there and eliminate them, though if possible I want you to capture one of them and bring it back here. I'll pay a bonus for that, but if it's too dangerous I'll understand. It's more important we disrupt the Major's operations if there is indeed one.

Also while you're in Berlin the GPS satellite network will be available for you and you'll receive the highest priority for any request for it's use. You'll also be flying on a GPS transport so we won't have to worry about customs so bring as much firepower as you want. Is there anything else you think you'll require before you depart?

Ms. Khayal we need to talk. It seems there has been some negative reaction to my hiring of you from some of the community. I want to let you know that it doesn't matter to me. I care about results and whatever your past connections to these people are they're unimportant. If they do persist in implying that you, or this company might be involved in anything illegal consult the legal team and have them draw up a suit for slander and libel. I won't tolerate my people being attacked in any way. Also if unfortunately you ever do find yourself in legal trouble please let me know. We have one of the best attorneys in the city on retainer just for that purpose, a Mr. Matt Murdock.

Now I also have an assignment for you. Mr. Holmes requires some Import volunteers to test a forensic theory he's working on. It's nothing invasive, but he does require Imports with physical powers. See what you can do to help him and if there's any problems let me know. I would recommend starting with the Police Department as this research would be of the most direct benefit to them.

I'd like to welcome Talia Khayal to Rossum as our new Vice President of Public Relations. While I have been handling those duties myself for some time now with the growth Rossum has experienced it was time to let someone more adept at this field to take over. So if any of you have questions regarding Rossum I would appreciate it if you directed them to her first unless of course you've already have made arrangements to speak with me directly. I know she'll be more than up to the task and I look forward to her having a long career with this company.

Now, this doesn't mean my office door is closed. It's still very much open for prospective new employees and our business partners.

Also I would like it if my other employees would do me the favor of dropping by her office soon and saying hello in person. I know you all have busy schedules, but it's important to me that you do this, thank you.

Mr. Lawton, the facility you requested is completed and ready for you and your team to make use of it. It's located at [Address here] beneath a Rossum storage facility. The access code is [code here]. Once you're settled in I'd like you to send me a report on the mainframe about your attempt on your recent attempt on the Major and not because I'm disappointed. You saw an opportunity and you took advantage of it. It didn't succeed, but if the Major was an easy target I wouldn't have selected you for the job. I just want to have your views on his security and vulnerabilities to add to the file for analysis.

So in light of that attempt is any other resources you feel you need to complete your mission?

With so many recent new arrivals I feel I should make a bit of an introduction. For those of you that don't know me, I'm Boyd Langton and I'm the CEO of the Rossum Corportation. I would like to extend an invitation to any of you with medical, or scientific experience to please come and see me. My company is always expanding and we have great opportunities, especially in the field of medical research. I believe in employing the best minds I can find and I am willing to pay what they are truly worth. I also believe in taking of care and nurturing those minds, so all of my employees receive medical care at our state of the art facilities at no cost and also help with housing.

If you are interested please feel free to contact me on the network, or to stop by our headquarters at anytime. You'll be shown right on up to my office.

I have another job for you and this one is not from an outside contract. It's coming directly from me. I'm sure you've noticed the Major's return and also the revelation he'd been posing as a fixer named Thousand. Thousand was the client for the Wilshire Chemical Plant job which was just the latest in a long line of attacks on me and my people from him. The Major has also stolen and abused my technology, hurt my public standing, and endangered people important to me. I want him eliminated, preferably in a manner that would prevent the Porter from bringing him back. So if the only option is permanently disabling him without killing him that will be an acceptable result. Every resource of this company and myself are available to you for use in this mission. Take who and what you need, I want it done and done correctly. I have no doubt in your ability, or that of your team to do this.

I also want you to take every opportunity that is feasible to harass and disrupt the Major's operations. Such missions of opportunity will, of course, be compensated appropriately on top of the two million starting fee for the Major.

He wants a war and with your assistance that is exactly what we are going to give him.

This is Richard Kern with breaking news.

[Behind the anchor images of SWAT troopers, FBI agents and helicopters play. All of them at some sort of industrial facility.]

Last night FBI, New Jersey State Troopers, and Newark SWAT responded to a tip about a terrorist attack at the local Wilshire Chemical Plant. On arrival they found several heavily armed men and immediately arrested them without any casualties. A search revealed bombs had been planted all over the plant, enough according to the FBI to destroy the entire facility. Thankfully the bombs were successfully disabled and removed and the plant is working at full capacity today.

[The camera cuts away from the anchor to show footage of the bombs, clearly high tech and professionally assembled.]

The reasons for the attack are unknown. What is known is that the men arrested have been identified as employees of Global Protection Services, a private military corporation based in the city and owned by an Import, Boyd Langton, who also owns the Rossum Corporation.

[A picture of Boyd from some sort of company brochure is flashed on the screen.]

It is not known at this time if the men were working under orders from GPS, Mr. Langton, or some other party. The FBI says they will know more after they have finished their interrogations of the terrorists and they have not ruled out anyone yet.

Please stay with us as we bring you up to minute details on this disturbing attack.

I'd like to discuss that with you further, specifically your training and qualifications. If they match the performance that's been reported to me so far and I'm sure they will then I might have a position for you at Global Protection Services.

I know a lot of you want to help with the situation we're all seeing in the news. I also know that means plenty of you are going to run off trying to get there without a real plan. You will help people, but if we act together we'll do a lot more good. That's why I'm making Global Protection Services planes and helicopters available to transport anyone that wishes to help. I'm sure the government has a response in place, but considering what just happened it might not be enough. If we help them I'm sure we'll be able to save more live then letting them work on their own. I'll be there and anyone else that wants to go is welcome. Don't worry about cost, or food, or anything like that. I'll take care of it.


So who's going?

The Major is dead. During our attempt to treat him he had a severe adverse reaction to the medication we use to induce a coma like state. He suffered complete cardiac failure and we were unable to revive him. It is unfortunate, but there was nothing we could do. His body simply shut down.

I hope you do not view this as typical of my company's treatment. In all the years I've been doing this procedure this is first time I've ever encountered a reaction like this.

We have a situation I'd like to discuss with you. I have finally found a possible lead on Echo's whereabouts, or at least the location of her corpse. The problem is the person who claims to know this information is the Joker and he will only tell me if I agree to let Halverson scan his brain and then commit him to our facility. Normally I would never consider taking a risk like this, but you know how important Echo is. Now since he will most likely end up in the Attic I need to know if you're up for handling his treatment. If not I'll understand, but I need an answer.

Also I will increase the security in our facility for as long as he's there and I'll even have Alpha keep a close eye on him. Not that I'll need to encourage him any.

We're all strangers to this place, pulled here against our will. Very few if any of us have the luxury of having a families join us. Sadly that means when one of us passes on we do not have a next of kin to see to our final wishes. Because of the lack of family I feel it should fall to those of us who knew the deceased best to see those unpleasant details. In Whiskey's case, that was me.

I was more than Whiskey's employer. At one time I was involved with her romantically. She was Doctor Claire Saunders at the time. She was special and very important to me. While we were no longer involved in that way, she still remained very important to me personally. That's why I'm requesting that her body be turned over to me for burial. I want to make sure she's handled with respect and I don't feel a city run funeral will provide that. So please, let me do this for her.

Ms. Halverson, an opportunity has presented itself for a project I want you to oversee. One of our Dolls has shown up here. Without an imprint. I'd like you to have a look at Sierra and make sure she's alright. Then I want you to start creating some imprints for her. In particular if we could recreate Ms. Taffy I would very pleased. Also an imprint with which she could infiltrate the Mayor's office. If there are any other imprints you feel important to have available for her then feel free to pursue them, I trust your judgment.

You are free to consult Topher if you need to, but try to limit his involvement in this. He might be reluctant to create some of the imprints that will be required. Also keep all of this from Whiskey, I'll deal with informing her when it's time.

I also need you to create a back up wedge of me. With what recently happened to Mr. Osborn I'd like some added insurance against anyone using a similar tactic to remove me.

I would like announce the Rossum Corporation's intention to purchase the Import clinic. I want to reassure everyone that we will be keeping the clinic open. We simply want to be able to ensure that remains the case. Under our leadership the clinic will be upgraded with the latest medical technology and the most experienced staff that we can find. Treatment at the clinic will be free to all Imports, to include prescriptions and surgeries.

All current staff members will keep their positions and I look forward to working with all of you to provide, I hope, the finest medical care in the world. Thank you.

There has been a lot of talk recently amongst our community over who is responsible for the tragic incidents involving abuse of a certain technology, a technology that many have said I invented. This is true. While I am not responsible for the tragedies we all witnessed last month, I did invent the technology to wipe the human mind and imprint it with new instructions, even new personalities. However, I want to make it clear that I never intended it be used like this. I created the technology to help people, to treat ailments that simply couldn't be treated any other way, and I'm appalled to see it abused like this.

Unfortunately I can't un-invent what I've created, but I can help to fix some of the damage caused by it. To show our sincerity and commitment to undoing that damage, Dr. Saunders and I will be making a large donation of the latest medical equipment to The Clinic on Orchard in the name of the Rossum Corporation.

Assuming of course, that Dr. Mid-Nite approves.
