Sam remembers some of the serial numbers on some of the parts on the bombs. It’s amazing what things imprint in your head in an intense situation. He manages to track down some of the parts. They seemed to have been purchased at a hardware store in a west side neighborhood of Chicago.
Caelian had managed to lift one of the Anubis security cards, but unfortunately it doesn’t reveal much useful information.
As Shanice poked around, she found some initial reporting about what happened at The Bunker. Something had blown up -- a bomb? -- and somehow ?!!? managed to take down much of the containment system. It was a big mess. Being so far out in Lake Michigan, it took awhile for the Guardians to get there, and many of the superpowered inmates had managed to escape. The Guardians were busy trying to track down the escapees.
Kat found the names of several recruiters. Most of her contacts didn’t actually know much about Mask, but they did recognize the symbol she showed, as the recruiters often had tattoos or small pins. Now in the supers world, Kat figured they might be communicators. Most of the recruiters in these neighborhoods seemed mostly to be looking for spotters or thugs, people to be local muscle and not likely to know much. But she did learn that they were supposed to report to Tres Reyes gang territory.
Constance seemed to hit the motherlode. Her alter ego managed to lead her around on a chase that ended up in her getting her hands on an FBI report. It wasn’t too detailed, but she definitely got the gist.
Mask started as a mercenary operation after World War 2 with factions on both sides of the developing Cold War .It had no problem recruiting operatives from the destroyed Axis powers. As an organization, it was more anarchic, making sure to keep both the NATO and Soviet blocs destabilized, both to prevent outright nuclear annihilation, but also to create space for an alternative. That alternative was Mask. Mask agents infiltrated key organizations in various countries, working for Mask’s agenda behind the scenes, becoming a key antagonist of the United Nations Peace Force, the Guardians, the Soviet Red Sickles, and the Chinese Red Dragons as they planned and executed their terrorist plots.
