The things Mastaba said about Escher bother me. Is it possible that he really plans to use her as another test subject? Wasn't she dead? Is it possible for him to use her for his grotesque experiments regardless? Nothing from that man would really surprise me.
I figure that I still have some time before the reactor goes, a little backtracking won't hurt me. I head back to the dig site.
Sure enough, Escher is nowhere to be found. Where she was laying earlier, I can see an electronic object of some sort.
