EMAIL BLAST TO: LISTSERV-PersonnelMGMT, LISTSERV-462Whisper
Whisper successfully recovered the meteorite deposited by the "Ghost-quake" that occurred three days ago in the Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhoods of Brooklyn. Interviews with area residents (Living and PLEs) indicates that a loud screech preceded a deafening boom and tremors. Horror usage indicated that Agent de Vitt was heavily wounded by the effects of the quake (having found herself at the epicenter) and fled the incursion of a Shadow-class Red entity (Grimm, see Missions #456, #478, #483), leaving behind the meteorite object that crashed or appeared in the basement de Vitt was investigating. An aura of Spite pervaded the epicenter, although absolutely no physical damage was reported. Whisper's interviews revealed a large number of post-impact sequelae in local residents, and the quake itself was strong enough to purge the local area of ghosts. The sequelae manifested themselves in the form of headaches, nightmares, and unusual behavior. Fifteen individuals (13 adults, 1 child, 1 infant) came to Orpheus treatment for an overnight stay and analysis. Nothing was medically wrong with any of them, although psychoanalysis indicated signs of recent trauma, although no individual could identify the source of that trauma. By the time the subjects were discharged, only two continued to report symptoms.
Whisper made use of the surviving ghost population to track the location of Grimm and its entourage of Lost Boys (see Missions #[masked]) to a local warehouse. The object was found unguarded in a room therein, but the Shadow-class entities attacked before extraction could take place. Agent Sioux was injured in the ensuing conflict and is currently recuperating in medical. Whisper managed to escape with the object and reported back to headquarters.
The object itself has been subject to analysis. It has the appearance of a marred chunk of limestone, but does not exist in a physical sense, and has been therefore reticent to more fine analysis. It resembles a chunk of material, perhaps from some sort of architectural column, but the provenance of such an object is unknown and seemingly impossible. It remains unclear why exactly the spectres would want such an object. It is possible that the object was used as leverage to entrap Whisper, but that would indicate a level of organization heretofore unknown to Shadow-class entities.
