You ask Dr. Finch about stealth technology, or invisibility.

"Well," he begins, "there's certainly been research done into it. Numerous military projects have made headway into the subject, though they've struggled to cloak anything smaller than a car. Most forays into the concept of a cloaking device have involved either phased array optics or computer generated holography, though the existence of mutants that can psychically "trick" a human brain into not perceiving things have lead to some wild speculation. Imitating psychic effects with technology has rarely found any success, however."

You take another second to observe your surroundings. You don't see any distortions or motions, or odd shadows. You don't smell anything. No unexplained sounds.

You have Michelle and Caius mess with the front door of the school. Michelle tosses a random piece of metal at the door to see if it's electrified. Nothing. She pushes the door open with no difficulty. "Looks clear to me, Blondie."

Fuse turns to you, grimacing. "I'd almost prefer psychos jumping out of lockers to... whatever this is. This is a trap, right? ...So where's the trap?"

You slowly, carefully, make your way through the door on the far left--out of the cafeteria and into the next section of the school.

hhhhhello there friend, are you the source of the teeth and eyeballs we’ve been finding?

check him for identification — a wallet, badge, something like that. maybe we can find out where he came from.

Seems we found where the eye came from.

Approach that corpse with the fire extinguisher held up ready to swing. If it reanimates and goes all 28-days-later on us, give it a real hard smack.

Otherwise, I'd kinda like to know why the eyeless bleeding corpse has Sonic the Hedgehog's hair cut.

Does the corpse have a nametag? Is it wearing a uniform?

Hey it just occurred to me that if they're currently alive but bleeding out (from the eyes) then we could probably add them to the crew pretty easily. Blind at the moment, sure, but we have access to a bio-printer later.

Perhaps a bit disrespectful, but paranoia wins out. Knock him down first with your blood-ropes, check for any sign that he's still alive... or at least mobile, as the two aren't mutually exclusive.

*sigh* when are things going to go sideways? I'm getting antsy.

What the everloving hell was Jury doing around there and where the hell is she.
Take a blood sample for the Finch from that dude after ascertaining his current threat level. Looks like he lost both eyes (and probably some teeth).

Have a look at all three 'clean' doors (also check that hallway there too) before heading to the obvious deathtrap.

Definitely check out the body. If it is alive, have Fuze watch for potential attackers while you Blood them, give them, give them Painkiller, and get them help immediately.

*Fuse. Anonymity is no excuse for poor spelling.
