You ask Dr. Finch if he figured out what the deal with Prophet's blood was.

"From what I can gauge..." he starts, "a combination of irradiated blood from the lower tiers, further destabilized by an excess of bioprinted blood. I'd say it was from doping up on Save the Queen, but I fear it wasn't that simple--the actual drug part of Queen leaves behind indicators, which Prophet didn't have enough of to account for all the bioprinted cells. As damaged as his natural blood was... I believe he may have been regularly cycling it out with normal, undrugged bioprinted blood. While that much artificial blood would be disastrous for a normal person's health... compared to the state of his original blood, it must have been a welcome improvement. Even if he hadn't passed on the way that he did... I don't suspect Prophet would have been long for this world."

Michelle volunteers to go shopping for clothes. "You might need Fuse and Finch's brains messin' with the bunkers, and you need at least one of us muscles to stick around in case things get real. I can handle myself doin' some low key shoppin', and it'll be easier to tell a fake me from a fake Caius if Shirai decides that move wasn't dumb enough the first time. No offense, Caius."

Caius gives a big shrug. "It's true, though. Maybe I should get a tattoo or somethin'."

You also lightly shake, or 'buzz,' the syringe in Grizwald's pocket for a moment. You're not too sure how you could get a hold of each other, but you want him to know you're worried about him. If he gets a moment free and notices the syringe, you think you might be able to use... Morse code, or something, to communicate.

You bring your currently unoccupied raven to the street where the bunker door is, so that it can keep watch.

You step outside, you swipe the new card... and you send the rat into Bunker B.

Woah, is that, a giant, frozen, test tube? Let's take a closer look, and then proceed to the door on the right

Aw, stay safe, Michelle. <3 ;v;*

A tattoo for Caius? XD Hmmmm...

O_O Is there... 'someone' inside that pillar? Gosh darn. Does it look like it's functioning under power or anything or is it totally just frozen up?

Is it too cold here for Willard or can he proceed? ;v;*

unofficially, yeah. none of the animals in the comic have been canonically given names but we've kind of named them for the sake of naming them. willard is the white rat, the brown one was malteser (rest in peace tiny friend), and the three ravens are edgar, allan, and poe, though they're indistinguishable from eachother and no one's really been keeping track.

okay anyways puns aside, i think it's probably safe to say there's not much in this part of it either. however, it is clear we really are somewhere very cold. if we started in north america and the gps in our phone says we're on the other side of the world... siberia, maybe? keep exploring, i guess, but keep an eye on the rat because it's only little and it's far more susceptible to hypothermia than any of us would be in this situation. in other news, the skeleton in that vat looks... weird. and interesting.

Doesn't look like theres much left in the cryotank.
Wonder why its still here though.
Part of the security system, perhaps?
Continue exploring bunker B via rat.

Judging by the state this particular bunker is in, it may be wise to invest in some warmer clothes as well. Provided the rest of it is like this and simply not part of a means to keep whatever's in that tube well-preserved. Regardless, let's send the mouse further in.

And what's behind door no. 1....? A frozen humanoid figure in a test chamber!
Our goal here is to explore and get the lay of the land, and (sorry rat!) discover/trigger any security we can before we go inside with our real meat bodies.
I doubt we can learn much about the tube's contents without being there in person, so we should just continue exploring.

I hope that's not a Red corpse.

I wonder why it's so cold here? You'd think these bunkers would be shielded from the elements. Or maybe have thermostats. Is there a breach in this bunker somewhere, maybe?

I guess that's a little green wire going into the cylindrical thing? Or maybe a pipe?

We should tell Michelle to also grab some "cold weather" clothes while she's out.

Shopping targets: warm clothes and durable sneaking ones.
Green wiring to frozen tube likely means there was a system keeping this person? in the tube, leading down means there's lower levels and the larger door means people could come and go With the tube. Proceed cautiously.

So, uhh... I haven't read the rest yet, but what on earth happened to the grey rat? I know the brown got smushed, but I've been binging this comic, and it just... got left.
