REPORT ON OPERATION HOMEFRONT
Went to the Paris stronghold. There were only three possible targets for me to get the password.
I first talked to Alana, she was curt and was expecting me to attend the meeting (even if I did skip out on those most of the time because most of them involving politics, which I avoid). She asked me if I saw the new improvements in the stronghold such as the new 'screws' for torture (which I involuntarily shuddered, I don't approve of these kinds of torture methods). Psychological is definitely cheaper, complicated and fun to do anyways. Hiding the corpse is definitely more expensive than killing someone to become a corpse. I did pass an amendment on this, but even the new branch leader, Vikram Kabra, did not approve. Talk about 14th century mindsets. She did not know of the password to the archives but she hinted that Vikram knew.
I then talked to Chrissy, the cheerleader-by-day-agent-at-night Lucian whom I am acquaintances with. She's not the obvious 'cheerleader' type as we both share boyish interests such as wearing more pants and shorts than skirts (except for when she practices in her squad) and hate physical torture. I saw her wearing her cheerleading uniform, so I guessed she just got here in a hurry. We had small talk and then I asked about the question after. I went to her insead of Vikram since if someone knew about the password I can just ask them for it rather than creating a complicated plan to retrieve it from the 'big cheese' without them knowing of my real intentions. Unfortunately even she doesn't know, so I had to brace up and went to Vikram Kabra himself.
It was nerve-wrecking to talk to him, his presence in the room rather repels people. He intimidates everyone, Alana even admitted it herself that she's scared of him more than she is of Isabel. I made my words rather clipped and showed off my extensive English vocabulary so I wouldn't be scolded of being 'low-class.' I asked him simply of how he is being branch leader (again) after disappearing (which I used 'on official business' in the conversation). I accidentally brought up Ian, which he dismissed as he said that 'he did not have a son.' I kept 'interrogating' him until I finally got the archives' password out of him without knowing. I bid goodbye to him and stayed for a little while longer in order to avoid anyone from seeing me as suspicious.
The password for the Lucian archives - PYTHONRUBY.
