/message MrE I am a member of the Council, which has an interest, among other things, in helping your daughter. Despite our occasional grandiose declarations, we have some rather major holes in our understanding. Would you be able to fill in a couple for me, please?
(18:23)MrE: Am I the go-to guy for mysterious Etamnanki interlopers? :)
/message reply Maybe. Have you heard anything from Delta?
(18:24)FallenLeaves: Woops, there you are.
(18:25)MrE: Delta? It doesn't ring a bell.
(18:25)FallenLeaves: Also known as Padlock?
(18:26)MrE: Hmm... Still nothing.
(18:27)FallenLeaves: Alright. Delta is this an even more mysterious Etamnanki interloper.
(18:27)MrE: Now isn't that alarming...
(18:28)FallenLeaves: Yes, but I think I have a more immediate concern. Unless Delta's behind it? Aaaaahhhh!
(18:28)MrE: Take a moment if you need to.
(18:29)FallenLeaves: I've come into some information that Australia might be devastated in the near future, and want to see what I can do to minimise loss of life. Who would I need to contact to get something done about that?
(18:30)MrE: Devestated how?
(18:31)FallenLeaves: Gaians are going to nuke it. Rasputin might be there.
(18:32)FallenLeaves: Pancake's trying to set up a timeline merge.
(18:33)MrE: By blowing up a continent?
(18:34)MrE: So... there's another timeline in which Australia's been destroyed in the same way.
(18:34)MrE: This is truly alarming. What proof do you have?
(18:35)FallenLeaves: Uh... Xeno said so.
(18:35)FallenLeaves: So, not much.
(18:36)MrE: I'm afraid that doesn't count for much to anyone who doesn't side with her.
(18:36)FallenLeaves: Arbiter believes it too.
(18:38)MrE: I'm afraid that doesn't count for much, either. Arbiter's faction has largely been written off as a joke.
(18:39)FallenLeaves: Wait, what? Written off by who?
(18:40)MrE: Oh dear, this is complicated. The Etamnanki unit was never disbanded; did you know that?
(18:41)FallenLeaves: I guess I'd never given it much thought.
(18:42)MrE: Mhm. Well, after the war, the public was informed it had been "shut down". In reality, it was merely... transferred.
(18:42)MrE: The unit is now commanded by General Labuchere, hero of the India campaign. You might know her as Ambidex.
