Ghost 03

Transcription of audio recorded from the office of Inquisitor Alpha is as follows:

[knock on the door]

IA: Come in.

[sound of door opening. Footsteps. Door closes.]

Female Voice: I want answers.

[there is a slight pause. The sound of someone shifting in his seat is heard.]

IA: Don't we all? What can I do for you, miss double A?

Analyst Alpha: This so-called "Ghost" has somehow managed to hack into my email and listen in on the Council. So tell me, why have you not found him, yet?

IA: It's a ghost, remember? Presumably he can walk through walls.

AA: Don't give me that shit. You know who it is, don't you?

IA: [sighs] And if I knew who it was, why would I keep that a secret?

AA: You sided with the Keeper. You're trying to destroy my work--

IA: It's true that I have moral objections to the Neomaria project, but I most certainly--

[there is a slamming sound]

AA: You and Keeper and Scribe are trying to end my experiment! I know it! You think I don't know that Keeper is Anchises? It's obvious! Anyone with half a brain could figure it out!

IA: First of all, there is no concrete evidence to support that accusation-- and it is quite an accusation. Secondly, it's pronounce "Anchises." The C-H makes a "K" sound.

AA: I want Ghost's head.

IA: Good for you. What will you do if you don't get it? Sic your lapdog on me? Won't that be interesting? I wonder how the Martyrs would react to being sent after an Alpha? Oh, but they are so loyal, aren't they?

AA: Inquisitor Alpha, will you please stop trying to change the subject!?

IA: No, I don't think I will. Now will you kindly get out of my office?

AA: You--

IA: Me! Yes, me. My office. That you are in. Get out.


It's shameless, the way they flirt.

Ghost 02

Transcription of the meeting of the Council of Seven is as follows:

Collector Alpha: Is this meeting truly necessary? We are all aware of the current situation.

Analyst Alpha: You of all people shouldn't be complaining. It's your fault this council is deadlocked on the Scribe Sigma issue.

CA: Scribe Sigma... Neomaria... 208... These don't concern the Collectors. I see no reason to vote on this issue.

Broker Alpha: I'd like to remind you that she stole sensitive information, and posted classified data to that blog of hers.

Scribe Alpha: Something she only did after certain members of this council attacked her.

Martyr Alpha: I had judged her to be a danger--

SA: Don't give me that! You were obeying Analyst Alpha like good little boy--

AA: Scribe Alpha! Please show some restraint or excuse yourself from this chamber.

Keeper Alpha: By all rights this shouldn't have happened in the first place. We should have terminated 208 long ago.

AA: I have put too much time into the Neomaria project to see it--

KA: Project? She is your daughter!

AA: This is not the time nor the place for such sentimentality, Keeper Alpha!

Inquisitor Alpha: This infighting is getting us no where. Without Collector Alpha's vote, the council remains deadlocked. As for the matter of Scribe Sigma, it is true that she has released classified information, but it was under fairly extreme circumstances. She should be brought in and punished for that transgression, though I'd argue leniently, and nothing else.

BA: Showing any leniency to someone who willfully releases classified data--

SA: Yes, we all know you're very upset about not being able to turn as much of a profit as you used to, but can you please just shut up for once?

BA: The money my brokers make is what keeps this organization running!

SA: Or at least the money that gets into the treasury.

BA: Just what are you implying?

KA: Enough! As far as I'm concerned, the matter of Scribe Sigma remains deadlocked. Is there anything else that must be brought to our attention?

AA: Yes, the matter of the mysterious "Anchises." He is clearly someone with access to high-level information, and has an interest in protecting Scribe Sigma.

IA: My inquisitors have found no evidence that could lead us to Anchises' identity.

MA: Big surprise there.

AA: And what of Ghost?

IA: Likewise. We do not know who Ghost is, or how he obtained your email. It's possible that Ghost and Anchises are the same person.

KA: In The Aeneid, Aeneas did meet a ghostly image of Anchises when he went to the underworld.

AA: Yes, I'm sure you'd know all about that.

SA: It seems to me that there is insufficient information for the council to act on these subjects. I propose that we set them aside for the time being and move our discussion to the proposed Experiment 563.


You guys should really beef up your security. Just saying.

Ghost 01

11-13-11: Target Scribe Sigma's current location: Unknown

The trail has gone cold

recovered the following e-mail:


To: Martyr Alpha
From: Analyst Alpha
Subject: Scribe Sigma

I understand that the girl has managed to evade your people for a month. Where is she? I know that you know just how important it is that I get her. IA has assured me that he's searching for whoever helped her, but so far no leads have come up. How can you be certain that none of your Martyrs helped her? She used to be yours, see if you can find anyone she was friends with.

And I want you to investigate the Inquisitors as well. Remember that IA sided with KA and SA in the last meeting. I don't trust him.


Hello, miss AA. I am the one who helped SΣ escape. Nice to meet you.

Daddy is teaching me to play a game. It's called chess and it's so fun. But I have trouble understanding the rules. Why is the horsey called a knight? I love my daddy. Why are you mad mommy? Is chess a bad game?

Daddy what's my name? Mommy says I don't have one but everyone has a name. I heard people call you Keeper Alpha and people call mommy Analyst Alpha. Is my last name Alpha?

Sammy Mayhew? Is that my name daddy?

Why are you so sad daddy? It is my name? I'm Sammy Mayhew? What's wrong daddy?

Mommy why is daddy sad? I only asked him my name. No mommy! Don't be mad. I'm sorry mommy I'm sorry sorry sorry

Daddy mommy's so mean I hate her!

Why is it so quiet all the time? No one ever has time to play with me. There are no other kids here. Can we move somewhere else daddy? Why not? I don't understand daddy.

Daddy why do you spend so much time watching the Martyrs?

I'm having a birthday party! Thank you mommy I love you! Where is it? You're taking me to it now! I can't wait! I'm eleven I'm a big girl!

This room doesn't look like a birthday party.

Mommy? Why did you lock me in here? Why are you calling me that? What's "neemara"?

Mommy help where are these men taking me? I can't move this chair is uncomfortable! Help me mommy! Mommy? What is that thing they have! No! NO NO NO NO NO NO HELP ME HELP ME HELP ME HELP ME HELP ME

It hurts mommy, it hurts it hurts why mommy? You said I'm a good girl? I'm a good girl mommy? But mommy it hurts.

Why does my tummy always hurt mommy?

Who are you? Why are you in my room? !!!! Are you the Grandfather! Mommy and daddy have told me so much about you! Did you know I'm going to have a baby?

You want me to sign my name in this book?


Update on my Current Status

Like I said before, I have been very busy lately. I've gathered a lot of information, most of which is about my past, the past I don't remember. A picture is beginning to form, and frankly I don't like it.

Once again, there are still some things that are unclear, and that I'm still looking into. I've been spending a lot of time at libraries, looking through books about folktales and mythologies and urban legends. I'm trying to find as much information as I can about the Shadow People, because I'm certain it all comes back to them. I'm actually typing this up at a library computer right now.

I'm not sure what I'm hoping to find. I doubt any of these books are going to have information on what happens when Shadows get stuck inside humans. I don't even know why I'm so hung up on it. I'm going by the word of some guy who named himself after a character from Greco-Roman myth. Although I do think I have a pretty good idea of who he really is...

You see, a few weeks back, I went home. My original home, the one I left to join the Archive. I saw my mother for the first time in years, and we talked.

The Grandfather is standing right next to me.

UXP746: "A"

NOTE: I have been very busy these past few weeks, and I've learned a lot. I think I'm beginning to understand why I was targeted, and I believe that I have figured out who "Anchises" is. However, there are still some missing pieces to the puzzle, and I don't want to reveal what I've learned just yet. Both because of the few missing pieces, and because I want to put some distance between me and the places I've been. The Martyrs are no doubt watching this blog carefully. So until I fill you in on what's been going on, I'll post some more stuff I've got from the Archive's database. --SΣ

Designation: UXP746

Description: Appears to be a human and is capable of verbal and written communication. UXP746 identifies itself as "A." Gender is unknown. Features and voice appear to be wholly androgynous, to the point that there is some doubt over "A's" humanity and whether or not it possesses a gender at all (Hence its classification as UXP).

UXP746 has shown signs of possessing a human-like psyche. Specifically, UXP746's behavior exhibits signs of megalomania. UXP746 has shown itself to be fond of puzzles, and is prone to violence.

NOTE: The following is stuff that I've written, covering more recent developments --SΣ

Following a period of year-long absence, UXP746 has suddenly resurfaced. On October 4, 2011, blogger Achromatic Morality reported an encounter is UXP746. Shortly afterward, UXP746 created a new internet account, tied to the blogs A Realm of Emptiness and A Lifetime of Laughter. Judging by UXP746's recent activity, appears that its megalomania has gotten worse.
