Change of Hands
No one has come forward to claim responsibility for the slaughter of Grant Sekibo of the O.S.I.R. To the best of my knowledge no one has caught the murderer either. If you are out there reading this you've had your chance. Now I am going to hunt you down. No more warnings, and no excuses.
I have learned that Grant's second in command, Tommy Dearing, is now in charge of his squad. Mr. Dearing, if you are reading this I ask you to consider the same deal I gave Grant, even given how dirty and one-side it is toward me. Come after me and I will keep you occupied for months. Leave me alone and I will learn all of your secrets and those of the O.S.I.R. The choice is yours. Just remember I won't kill you, I won't let anyone in my team harm you. You'll have to live with your failures and weakness. Or maybe you can learn a better way. I can show you how to protect people, how to make peace with as many of us as you can. We're not all monsters. We're just like you, human. Treat us that way, and deal with only the real monsters in the way that you have been dealing with all of us.
I can't endorse executions, but I also can't deny that, more often than any of us would like, something that is essentially inhumane must be done to those who use their gifts for nefarious purposes. Even if it is blocking their gifts somehow or altering their personalities, that's still awful and undesirable, but the normal authorities don't even have those choices unless they accept our help in self-policing--under their control, to put them at ease. I don't know. I can only offer my own view. It's a bad situation all around, which was why I joined the Protectorate. There I can at least help as best as we can help.
