Johnny Be Good
Johnny is beaten and incarcerated at Spring Hill for trying to steal the Company’s top-secret records. Dutch visits him in his cell, but there is nothing that she can do to get him out so she calls Pawter to help him. Pawter, as the Matriarch of Land Simms, is able to demand Johnny be released, taking a few moments to humiliate Liam Jelco in the process.
Jelco informs Delle Seyah Kendry of Pawter and Johnny’s intent to try to stop the Execution Eugenics program in Old Town. She orders Jelco to initiate the wall program, even though it is earlier than they had planned.
On Leith at theScarback Monastery, Dutch questions Olan about Aneela, someone which a Red Box from Khlyen directed her to kill. The name sends Olan into a frenzy. But after the frenzy, Olan scribbles Old Word characters on the wall of his room, which were in the message included in the last transmission from the Red 17 facility. The characters translate into an ancient map of Arkyn. Dutch, Alvis, and D'avin set off to Arkyn.
On Arkyn they use the information from Olan to find and investigate a defunct lab, where test subjects were pumped full of the Green Plasma used to make Level 6 Agents. These subjects are all dead, and the was lab used to experiment with the plasma to build the Red 17 program. The team stumbles upon an ancient monk, one of the twelve who went to Arkyn to fight “the devil.” This one got trapped behind a containment fence proto-type, and the others were the subjects of the experiments in the lab. Unfortunately, the team is not able to get much info out of this monk before he lunges at Dutch thinking she’s Aneela. Apparently Aneela is the devil written about in the Scarback Scriptures.
On Westerleyy, Arune Hyponia finds Pawter and Johnny upstairs at the Royale, who are taking a little break after hunting for whatever poison the Company has put in the food in Old Town. Both are acting strangely, like they are high on a drug like Euphoria.
On Arkyn, the team manages to restrain the monk and calm him down. He is able to answer some of Dutch’s questions. When she brings up Aneela’s relationship to Khlyen, the monk says she called him father.
At the Royale, Jelco crashes the party and shoots Arune to prove a point: the wall around Old Town is pumping out a complacency signal that makes its inhabitants pretty much unconcerned with everything. Pawter and Johnny have already gotten their dose of it and even though Arune is their ally are not a bit upset that he has been killed.
In Old Town, while everybody is really living in agony, they feel like a million bucks. Something’s not right, but Pawter and Johnny are too high to notice.
