Re: Safehouse 17
Dane slipped the folder into his backpack, and headed out. He left the building, and then found a local coffee shop, where he could relax and enjoy a delicious mocha, while committing the facts in the dossier to memory.

OOC: No need to create a new location unless something is going to happen there. However, if you have a plan, feel free.

Dane returned to the Safehouse in probably 4-5 hours once the details of his new identity were known cold.

Re: Safehouse 17
The new identity was a career criminal by the name of Steven "Brick" Brown. Brick was originally from the west coast acting mostly as a low level enforcer. He had superhuman strength and durability, and had been imprisoned in THe Honeycomb twice, once for assault and once for armed robbery.

OOC - is he a real person whose identity Dane is borrowing, or is he entirely fictitious, invented for the purposes of the cover?

Re: Safehouse 17
Ooc. Entirely ficticious. Feel free to make up any additional details behind what I've stated.

Edit: also the appropriate records have been added into the system

OOC: What about appearance changing? Sinclair is pretty distinctive; special forces tattooes, etcetera...

OOC:

Dane is a decorated military hero. His face, background, and fingerprints would be on file. So he'll need a pretty thorough makeover and new fingerprints.

I'll craft his new personality, but assuming the physical makeover and background makeover can happen I'm ready to go.

Re: Safehouse 17
They employ a technopath, records can be dealt with. They Also have a sub dermal implant that functions like an image inducer.

Dane headed over to see Mike. "I'm set to go. What's the plan for insertion?"

Re: Safehouse 17
Mike was watching a set of monitors when Dane walked up. They displayed what seemed to be a mix of, surveillance cameras, police body cam footage, and news footage. They depicted some sort of robbery commited by a mix of cyborgs and paras, and the timely intervention of some local parahumans, as well as one of those parahumans escape after a misunderstanding with the police.

Mike smiled as Dane approached. "Well first, good news. Looks like a team from the Lavish Legion got nabbed by some local vigilantes. That'll leave them looking for new recruits. Bad news it might set them a little on edge, so be careful. As for the plan." He turned back to the monitors and a slight green glow came from his eyes as the monitors change to show a seedy, run down bar's surveillance cameras and online listing (which simply held the name, address, and phone number for the place.)

"This is a criminal hangout with the very original name of 'Joe's Bar'." One of the monitors brought up the photo of a rough, but handsome looking man with dark short hair and blue eyes. "This is Tommy 'Thunderclap' Bellevue. He possesses the ability to produce a deafening sound that produces a shockwave when he claps his hands. Because his abilities are only really useful for loud, public confrontations, he spends most of his time as a recruiter for the Lavish Legion. You go to the bar, let it be known your new in town and looking for work, with any luck, you'll catch his eye.

We have a holographic device to implant under your skin, you'll have to see the doc for that, the device will also allow us to monitor your vital signs. You can also pick up any gear you might want from the arsenal. We've secured an apartment for your cover, and properly furnished it and anyone looking 'Brick' up will only find what I've planted for background. Any questions?"

Dane shook his head. "Seems pretty simple. Get hired, be valuable, learn all their secrets and contacts, report back. And yeah, one question; what if they have a mind-reader? Do you have anything for that?"

Re: Safehouse 17
"The implant will send off a signal that will make it difficult for a telepath to get much beyond surface thoughts. This sort of telepathic resistance can happen in both parahumans and humans naturally, so it won't be cause for alarm. Just keep yourself focused on basic emotions, happiness, lust, anger, things like that, and you'll be fine. If you're all set head down to the med bay and the Doc will get you set up with one."

Dane nodded, and said, "Thanks." He turned and walked off, headed toward the Med Bay.

He footfalls barely echoed in the hallways. He was trained for stealth, and it was his natural default. He noticed everything as he passed en route to see the doctor, filed away for future reference.

He knocked on the door. "Doc? You have something for me?"

Re: Safehouse 17
  The doctor turned to look at him, and smiled as she said "Yes I do.  Please come over here and have a seat, we can do this with a little local anesthetic and it shouldn't be too hard.  The Director sent me the information that you're to have the sub-dermal holographic kit and the telepathic-shielding implanted.  Do you have any questions about the procedures?  We can also give you the top line comm implants, providing you don't mind being a cyborg to a degree?"

Dane chuckled. "I had two things on my bucket list when I was about fifteen years old: date a supermodel, and become a cyborg. If you know any available supermodels, you'll have fulfilled all of my childhood dreams. So yeah, I'm fine with that."

He sat down in the chair, and laid his arm across the table. "I'll have to watch you or else you'll never be able to slice into me. Hazards of the condition, if 'hazards' is the right term."

He added. "Oh, please find a place with no tattoo. Some of those are special forces tattoos, and are earned with a lot of hard work, sweat, blood and sacrifice. I'd rather them not cut into, if you don't mind."

Re: Safehouse 17
 She smiled, and moved to feel his upper arm, in the large muscle there, as she said "It's actually done like a needle punch, except the punch leaves the hologram emitters in your body instead of taking something out.  I can put one in your arm, here, and if there's any tattoos, I can also use the back of the shoulder.  The comm implant goes in the corner of your jaw, it's a slightly more complicated one, but again, local anesthetic, so I just have to numb your jaw to do it.  Almost like getting a tooth implant. The telepathic shielding is just a couple small slits in the scalp and I slide the implants in.  Unfortunately, we don't have any supermodels on staff, but one of the other doctors probably could pass for one if you wanted.  I just don't know if you'd want to date her."  Clearly, this Doc was flexible and had a sense of humor.

Dane chuffed a laugh, and said, "Yeah, probably not. My life is not conducive to happy relationships. Never home, real threat of an untimely death, always a kidnap target. You know, the usual stuff. Although it would be nice to have someone to watch NCIS and Navy Seals with... who is also a supermodel. Maybe a supermodel cyborg? That would be an interesting twist!"

Then he grinned, and asked, as the doc worked on him, "So, the other supermodel doc... not right for me? Too smart? Two heads? Divorced with seven children? Blind? Pacifist? Hippie?"

Re: Safehouse 17
 The doc shook her head, and said "No, she's under a 'death sentence'.  Nobody knows why she isn't already dead, she volunteered to participate in a limited human trial of a new medication, and she is literally the ONLY one of the volunteers who lived.  Every other person who actually got the drug they were testing, died in less than 24 hours.  And they can't get blood samples anymore to figure out why.  So she works with us.And she's got an unknown life expectancy, so she tends to be a little weird about being sociable."  She got out a tube of some sort of medication, laying it on a tray that held two large 'syringes' and several other items of high tech, and said "Okay, let me wash up and put on my gloves, and we can apply the locals so the skin goes numb, and then I can punch in your holo setup, then the shielding and comm sets.  You'll probably feel like you got a root canal done when I am finished, but since it's all done with the local anesthetics, you can watch everything I do, even if it is in a mirror."

Dane’s eyebrows rose. “Sounds like a perfect match. Two people with no expectation of living past the end of the day. I think I’ll look her up on the way out. What’s her name, and where can I find her?”

 She chuckled, and said "Kerry Thompson, and she usually works for the University, covering Sports Medicine, but she works for us as needed."  She applied the gloves, having scrubbed her hands up to the elbows, then picked up the tube of local anesthetic.  She said "This is topical anesthetic, it will just numb the area I apply it to.  It will do for the holo implants and the shielding, but the comm implants will take a little more, so I will need to give you a small injection of local anesthetic.  No generals needed."

Re: Safehouse 17
Dane chuckled. "Just so as you know, I have an extremely high pain threshold. You don't really need the anesthesia."

Then he added, "Is Dr. Thompson here today?"

Re: Safehouse 17
  She chuckled, and said "She's at the campus today, but you could stop over there.  And I don't like taking a chance to cause pain when I can numb the spot and do it without making you hurt more."  She put a dot on his arms where she wanted to put the holo units, and then picked the tube up.

Dane grinned. “Sounds perfect. ‘Hey, I’m Dane. My motto is, ‘For those about to die, I salute you.’ I hear you may be a short-timer too. Dinner tonight?’ Short, to the point, gives her a little glimpse of who I am, allows her the space to back out if she isn’t interested.”

He chuckled and shook his head. “Man, I should bottle this charm.”
