Part 192: BCP 21 - The Funeral of the Dead Butterflies

X-394 is a big facility, full of mysterious creatures known as Abnormalities. Many of these Abnormalities can do very bad things if they're handled improperly, and it's vitally important that our agents know just what may happen if they're careless. What's a manager to do?

Episode 21: The Funeral of the Dead Butterflies

Music: trailer

Hi! I'm Paul! Just your everyday plucky employee of Lobotomy Cobotomy, here today to talk about The Funeral of the Dead Butterflies!

The Funeral of the Dead Butterflies, or Funeral for short, is a HE-level Abormality who takes the form of a Butterfly-headed monster in a suit.

It's got a sharp style, and instead of a tie it's got a fifth hand!

That's correct, Paul! Now, let's cover how Funeral works. To that end, we'll be having Mr.Black work with it.

Wowsers! It's not every day that Netzach's own Captain gets involved!

Like many other Abnormalities, Funeral has certain level requirements. If it's worked by an agent with less than 3 Justice, it will automatically lose one Qliphoth Counter when the work is completed.

Good thing Mr.Black has a Justice of 5! There's no way the counter will lower from that!

Huhzuwhaaaaaat?! The counter decreased anyways!

That's because Mr.Black has a Fortitude level higher than 3, Paul! This is the other rule to keep in mind with Funeral.

Oh snap! Our best agents can't be used!

That's correct, Paul! If we break its rules twice, Funeral will breach. While Breaching, it has two forms of attack.

The first is a shot from its finger.

Fluttery frijoles! I've been fingerbanged!

This shot deals White damage to a single target in front of it. As for its other attack, it uses the coffin on its back.

This attack fills the corridor in front of it with butterflies, dealing White damage to everyone in front of it.

At least it only deals White damage! If anyone panics, we can just knock them out of it later!

Yowie wowie! But it was just White damage!

Any employee who panics due to Funeral's attacks is killed instead of panicked, Paul. Their bodies are put to rest as butterflies cover their remains.

It's a dedicated eulogy!

That's correct. However, it's a relatively fragile HE Abnormality, and can be easily suppressed by even a single agent with proper E.G.O equipment.

Even when suppressed, it's committed to being as edgy as possible!

Abnormalities are the crystallization of thoughts, after all-it makes sense that any one of them would be incredibly committed to their base idea.

I see, Miss Hod! That makes sense!

Well, that's all the time we have today. Thanks for joining us! And remember…

Knowledge is just pain plus observation! Have a great day!

Good evening, future Managers. Netzach has once more joined my stable of stable Sephirot. You may think that this is a good thing, but… it isn't. Netzach is useless. Perhaps worse than useless. Regardless, we've a butterfly to discuss. Angela?

Funeral of the Dead Butterflies serves two purposes in a facility: It will train Justice remarkably well for agents who have hit 3 in every statistic but seek direction, and it is a very easy Abnormality to make breach. It can also function as an Insight trainer, but Justice is a statistic which I find quite important-I vastly prefer it.

Its E.G.O gift does compete for space with that abomination of a bird's wing, though since I've never been able to defeat it such concerns are immaterial to me. I've also heard that its gear is particularly 'cool.' It shoots both Black and White damage at the same time, which simply complicates trying to determine which suppressions you should send its wielder on.

I suppose I can concede that it has some aesthetic appeal. People prefer sharp suits. It's why I make a point of dressing to impress. Even now that Yesod has fallen apart, I feel it best that I look the part I am meant to play.

...I rather miss him. He was the only one of these people who could do their job without costing me employees from overbearing work schedules, or making them into drug-dependent junkies. And don't get me started on that lazy imbecile who's supposed to be running Safety… Alas, that ship has sailed.

I suppose this is simply what I deserve for surrounding myself with machines. No matter. For now, this old man shall cease his ramblings.

Next time's featured Abnormality…
