“Ah Xan, I trust your trip from Fort Pernicar went alright?” Turel Sorenn inquired in an oddly chipper tone.
The Deshade shrugged. “Uneventful as it usually is. Any reason this couldn’t be done over the holonet?”
The Human nodded politely. “Highly classified mission off-world, you know the drill. I believe this mission is uniquely suited to you. Are you familiar with Dr. Arriana Axios?”
“Only in passing: brilliant physician, expert in cybernetics.”
Turel waved his index finger in the air in a gesture of affirmation. “One in the same. I need you to escort her to the Dajorra system for a medical conference. The Shadow Lady of Arcona herself has invited some of our top medical experts to a conference at the Estle City University on Selen. I chose you for this mission because, frankly, you are one of the few who might actually benefit from attending.”
Xan pondered the assignment for a moment. “What’s the threat assessment for this? What support will I have?”
The Councilor handed the Medic a holopad. “Details on are on the holopad. Good luck - your shuttle leaves in four hours.”
Normally this is the type of assignment I would take on myself, but if I spent any more time on Selen people would start to question my allegiance more than they already do. I am sending you to accompany Dr. Arriana Axios to a medical conference at Estle City University on Selen. This is by invitation of the Shadow Lady of Arcona herself, who as a medical practitioner herself may well be in attendance. The conference itself lasts three days.
This is within the heart of the Arconan capital - while they are nominally our allies, be on the lookout for any potential threats both there and en route. Dr. Axios’ expertise is extremely valuable and she is a strong target for kidnapping. O’reenians have targeted her in the past and they may have hired outside groups to carry out the job. Also, Selen has recently undergone a major upheaval in a large scale attack against Arconan interests, so the security situation in the capital is shaky at best. The conference is still going forward so proceed with caution.
I have also provided you with an encoded holo frequency that you can use if you run into a situation that you cannot handle. I cannot tell you who, but if you call, someone I trust in Arcona will come to your aid. I have already told them about your mission.
