S 36: The Call Girl
rating: +1+x

“When receiving messages from Subject-36, either on paper or audio, Associates are to call for reinforcements. If these options are not available, avoid being alone and especially in small spaces. S-36 prefers to ambush its victims.”
- Dr. Bourbon

Description

S-36%20by%20Octofox_sayman

S-36 appears to be a female version of ███, based upon its prosthesis, above normal reflexes and strength. Overall appearance is that of a young woman wearing clothes according to the latest trends in fashion within the local culture.
The most notable features are her collapsible birdlike prosthetic legs and multiple tattoos of number-symbols that have been crossed out, covering her face, neck, and shoulders. We suspect these numbers might represent Associates who have gone missing on previous expeditions. This matter is still under investigation.

Encounters

Subject-36 contacts her targets in advance before attacking. Either she leaves written messages, making her intentions clear, or contacts them directly through Short Waveband (FM) radio devices or wireless telegraphs. These transmissions start off with a musical tune, played in punch tape tunes, followed by a string of numbers announced by a woman.

What follows is a recorded message, received on February 2nd, 1871.

The recorded message starts after a punch tape tune starts playing that has similarities to the song Roses in the Rain by The Blokes from Burningham.

“…8, 14, 68, 54, 121, 251… 8, 14, 68, 54, 121, 251 … 8, 14, 68, 54, 121, 251…”

These numbers correspond with the designations of the Associates present. How S-36 acquired this information, or our Associates' frequency is unknown. An initial attack by S-36 usually follows within 4-hours.
Based on encounters on Planes 007, 067, 155, and 269 it is assumed S-36 is able to move through Rifts, making her exceptionally dangerous. Also, for unknown reasons, S-36 seems to have it out for members of the Association specifically.
S-36 prefers to ambush her targets and engage them in melee close quarters for which she seems especially designed.
Associates described the Subject as agile and sadistic. During engagements rather than defending she acts evasive, using her ability to leap to great heights to disappear behind cover and strike for concealed positions. S-36 prefers to immobilize her targets before killing them. However, her agility comes at the expense of protection and most handguns can harm or damage her. See Log S-36 for an eyewitness account

Transcript debriefing, Associate-8 on 1st of October 1870 by Dr. Jenever.
Associate-8 returned with the remaining Associates from Plane-007 after they were ambushed by S-36.

Dr. Jenever: ‘Welcome back, Associate.’

Associate 8: ‘Ahh, Didn’t think you cared, Doctor.’

‘Could you please take these seriously, for once’

(The Associate slams fist on the table) ‘Let me tell you how serious I am, Doctor! Another two dead Associates at the hands of that, that thing. What the hell was that?’
‘… Well, that's why we invited you here. To find out-’

‘You know exactly what it is… It knows who we are, our numbers even. And whose numbers were those tattooed on her face?’

‘We are investigating the matter.’

‘That is not an answer, Doc!’

‘Could you please just answer the questions’

(sigh) ‘Sure.’

‘Could you describe what attacked you?’

‘Freaky looking lass with roughly built prosthetics limbs. Legs looked like those of a chicken.’

‘A chicken. Like, bird legs?’

‘Yeah, she was quick on her feet as well. Could jump, run, and everything. Never fought anything like that before. Arms and hands looked more normal though. Used straight bladed knives to off ▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓ and ▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓’

‘What about her intelligence?’

‘Human, I’d think. Too sadistic to be just a machine. Could see her smile as she cut into poor ▓▓▓▓▓▓▓’

‘Please refrain from using real names, please’.

‘Oh, sod off. Is that all we are now? Numbers to be crossed off a ledger, Doc?’

‘You know why… Associate?’

‘Why don’t you just call me ██████, ey? Makes it a little more personal, partner. Equals, as we used to call it back when I joined the Association. Oh, but how times have changed.’

‘I will not discuss this matter with you. What else can you tell me about-’

‘She covered her faces with numbers. That creepy doll face has our numbers on it. Most are crossed out, but not all of them… She has your number too, Doctor…’
