Post-Session: 36

A look at what happened during and/or after Session 36.

Story - Crystal Condition

Game Date: 12/20/2006

Who: Eon (Lazarus), Karex, Knight of Saint Michael

Karex ponders deeply as he reads over the accumulated medical and scientific data regarding Eon's transformation. Not good. Not good at all. Too many people had potential access to the key databases. It was only a matter of time before they too started putting the pieces together. Well, at least he could send out a warning.

Karex quietly typed in an email.

To: Wardens
From: Karex
Subject: Regarding Eon

Wardens, I am worried about the information currently in databases outside of our control about Eon's condition. If it fell into the wrong hands, it could easily lead to Eon being the most hunted man on your planet.

As some of you may be aware, Eon's new crystalline body is a near perfect solar energy collector and battery. Together with his remaining regenerative ability, that potentially makes him a source of clean limitless power for all humanity. This may prove irresistible to humanity's less ethical factions, who may view the sacrifice of one individual in order to save millions of human beings from pollution-induced illness and death as justifiable. However, since the crystal would need to be harvested from Eon as he regenerates, the cost would be far too high. I am sure Eon would not enjoy centuries of having his fingers and toes cut off or his skin flayed as soon as it regenerates for use as a power source.

We may wish to verify that crystal fragments that leave Eon's body become inert - or if that is not currently the case, perhaps he could negotiate with his alien symbiote for such an alteration. Then we should consider whether to make this data publicly available . . .

In the meantime, I suggest that if a fragment of crystal is ever broken off of Eon during battle, it MUST be recovered immediately. Cosmic energy detectors should be used to survey the battle site any time Eon comes into conflict with a supervillain.

Thank you for your consideration,
Karex

Thank you for your concern, Karex. Eon, could you immediately settle this issue?

Thanks

Next time I decide to trim my fingernails I will inform you so that you can collect a sample. As for me being hunted, I have been hunted for a VERY long time, longer that you can possibly imagine. Before I was this form I was hunted for my power and immortality. Now you have me actually a bit concerned, who knows what could happen if this form were to fall into the wrong hands. As for my alien hosts, well they are very powerless to alter my form to the best of my knowledge. We can discuss this in person with the others as it might actually bear some credible concern.

I however am not going to tiptoe and go around second guessing everything while in a battle. If you like Knight can bring you up to speed with what is known of my current pursuers. He is head of security so he probably has the most current intel.

In my two outings to test my powers I have been in combat and have not noticed anything falling off, I got knocked around pretty good in my last mission aboard the plane, you might want to see if the FSS or anyone recovered anything meeting your description.

Let me know what you need from me. Besides a finger or toe that is.

I believe you are confusing me with your team's former scientist. While I do have an appropriate understanding of Yrician science as a member of the explorer caste, my experience with earth technology is still quite limited. Perhaps there is a former member of the Wardens or a trusted outside consultant that the fingernails could be forwarded to for analysis?

Attached: All previous emails on this discussion.

After giving Karex's concerns careful consideration I believe the best course of action is to consult Dr. S. Alon Sloan about the status of any particles shed by me. His expertise should provide us with the required information. I have forwarded the previous emails to him for review and perhaps he can give a theory or guess based on what he already knows.

Dr. Sloan if you have a moment can you tell me if my matter becomes inert after I shed it or separates from my body? You may reply to all of us since this is a concern for the Wardens also.

Standard bodily excretions, urine, feces and saliva, do not appear to have any extraordinary characteristics and can be consider inert for the purposes of this discussion.

Testing has shown that you do not sweat or shed dead skin cells, so these are not a concern. We have also not been able to recover a blood sample for analysis.

Your hair is an anomaly; its structure and chemical makeup are that of normal human hair. It seems to have been totally unaffected by your transformation.

For the bigger question of 'pieces' of you and their characteristics, we have been unable to gather any types of tissue samples in all of our testing up to this point. Based on density scans of your crystalline structure, it would take a significant amount of force to separate a tissue 'sample' from your body. If however such as occurrence does come to pass, I would be happy to analyze said tissue 'sample.'

If you have further questions or feel that I have missed something in regards to this query, please let me know and I will endeavor to provide further information and insight.

Dr. S. Alon Sloan
