ハンク・ジョンソンが失われていたオブシディウスの文献を発見し、イージス・ノヴァ紛争に係る自身の考えを明かした。

実に奇妙な事件だ。先日明らかとなっていた手掛かりをもとにポータルの捜索へ携わっていたエージェントらによれば、私の痕跡がサントリーニ島のポータルで発見されたのだという。この事実を確認するすべはないが、何か奇妙なことが起こっているようだ。そのメディアを見ようとインベントリを確認した際にオブシディウスの文献があることに気づいたのだ。説明しようのないことだ。おそらくは意図せずポータル・ハックして手に入れていたのだろう。いずれにせよ、奇妙なことだ。

いつか番組「ノマド」でオブシディウスのことを取り扱おう。残念だが今は幾つか差し迫った問題に直面している。ヤーハンとアコライトの双方とやりとりしている。アコライトが集落に、更に言えば小屋にクルーがいることを利して、エイダに関する様々な情報を得ようとしていることは間違いない。もっともエイダはクルーの精神に埋もれていることを望んでいただろうね。そして、その行いはヤーハンを逆撫ですることとなった。ヤーハンにしてみれば、アコライトの目論見が達せられる前にナイジェル・モイヤーの研究成果を利用してイージス・ノヴァを兵器とし、ジャービスを攻撃することが唯一の活路だからだ。

様々に物事が変化していっている。どのような破局が待ち受けているのかは想像するしかないが、まるで私はその破局を回避するように仕向けられているかのようだ。

なんとも物騒な時代に生を受けてしまったものだが、エイダとリントン=ウルフが手を結んだことが、ヤーハンとアコライトが互いの同調者への攻撃を強めることが、そしてイージス・ノヴァの謎を握るナイジェル・モイヤーが我が使命をより困難なものとしている。

オブシディウスに関して言えば、シビュラとの旅は当初考えていたより遙か遠くへ及んでいたようだ。プライム・オブジェクト、あるいはポータルネットワークによって隠匿されてきた異常領域をこの男が特定していたとしても、驚きはしないだろう。まだまだその旅路には続きがあるように思える。やがて全てが明らかになることを望んでいるよ。

テラにおいてシビュラとともに経験した奇妙な体験のことを話すと約束していたね。その島の近海を航行していた折、シビュラがビジョンを発現させたのだ。今では何の前触れもなく頻発するビジョンにも慣れたものだったが、興味深いことにそのビジョンは私までもが発現したのだ。それはビジョンであったはずだ。そのビジョンで私は他の生物へと変貌を始めていた...えらのある海洋生物へと。手足が大型化し、水かきが形成され、水中で苦もなく泳ぐことができるようになっていた。シビュラの姿は神話に語られる女性の海洋生物のようであった。それは余りに美しい姿だった。だが、人間というよりは魚のように肌を輝かせていたくらいしか、自分がどのような姿であったかはわからない。

私たちは息することなく1時間近く海中を泳いだ。そして、我々とは異なる謳い囁く生物たちに遭遇したのだ。その1時間後、私たちは息継ぎを求めて船へと戻ったのだが、船員たちは私たちはもう死んでしまったものと考えていたようだった。私たちの姿は元に戻っていた。私はシビュラと自分たちの身に何が起きたのか、どうして二人して同じビジョンを発現させたのかを話し合ったが、そのビジョンは余りにも生々しいものであったが故に実際に起きたことなのではないかと考えている。

Strange series of events. According to some Agents who have been involved in the most recent Portal Clue hunt, one of my breadcrumbs was discovered at a Portal on Santorini. I have no way to confirm this, but something strange did happen. When I was checking my inventory to look at that Media Object, I found an Obsidius journal entry in there. Can't explain it. Maybe I hacked it when I wasn't paying attention, maybe it just appeared. Either way, it's weird.

I intend at some point to do a Nomad episode on Obsidius. Unfortunately, for now, I have many other pressing matters at hand. I have been in contact with both Jahan and the Acolyte. It seems clear that the Acolyte has been able to exploit Klue's presence at the compound (and in the cabin) to discover many things about ADA that I am certain she would have preferred remain buried in Klue's mind. It's put Jahan on edge. From her point of view, the only path forward is to use Nigel Moyer's research, weaponize the Aegis Nova shield and attack Jarvis before the Acolyte's plan comes to fruition.

Many things are in motion and I feel as if I'm attempting to avert a catastrophe, though I can only speculate on what that catastrophe might be.

We are living in dangerous times and my task is made more difficult by whatever this alliance between ADA and Lynton-Wolfe might hold, by Jahan and the Acolyte's increasingly targeted attacks against one another's allies, and by Nigel Moyer, whose secret knowledge about Aegis Nova now sit in the middle of all this.

As for Obsidius, I think that his journey with Cybella ranged over far more of the globe than I had previously suspected. It would not surprise me if he could pinpoint anomalous zones that have since been hidden by prime objects or the evolution of the Portal Network. I suspect that more stories about his journey are out there. Over time, I hope they will all come to the surface.

I promised I would tell you of the strange adventure Cybella and I had at Thera. We were sailing close to the island. She began seeing a vision. I had grown used to this by now, it happened frequently and without warning. the curious thing was that I began seeing the vision, too. At least I thought it was a vision. And in this vision we began to transform into other creatures - creatures of the sea covered in gills. Our feet and hands grew in size and were webbed and we could swim underwater without difficulties. She looked like a female sea creature of myth. Quite beautiful. I know not what I looked like, save for I had shining skin that more resembled a fish than a human.

We swam beneath the sea for nearly an hour without needing to take a breath. And there, we discovered creatures not unlike ourselves who spoke in a songs and whispers. After an hour, we felt the need for air and returned to our boat where the sailors thought that we were lost for dead. Our bodies had returned to normal. Cybella and I discussed what had happened to us and it appears that we both had the same vision, but this vision was so real that we suspect that it might actually have happened.
