You still have one raven watching Howler's apartment; you leave it there, so you can check in every once in a while.

You send the one at Macland's hospital toward Wayhaven Penitentiary.

You head to Bunker D with your newly manufactured camera golem. Caius tags along just in case.

You make your way down the ladder behind the door. You send in the golem. Blood between the bits of debris (constituting the "inside" of the whole, apparently?) lets you make the construct walk, while blood inside the camera lets you see through its lens.

The golem hobbles through the door.

The good news is, you don't see any breaker boxes or wiring stations, so you don't think you have much more to fear from electrical issues.

Ooooooooh kay.

The ro-buddy should plant a bandanna, as a symbol of his-her? conquering of the planty room!

Well then. Yeah, I guess... poking it a bit might not actually be a bad idea. We can see how it reacts, then figure out whether it's a good idea to send someone/something that can actually talk (a raven, maybe? they can make human voice-sounds, we can probably talk through one) in there for diplomacy purposes.

It's one room away- We could yell through the open door?

Sweet Mary mother of pearl. uuuummm... if pokin' him doesn't work, maybe if the camera has a flash? Considering he's now a plant-man, he might be susceptible to light.

It is at this point that I kinda wish we still had the Super-Flamer from chapter one just in case planty here goes nuts. I'd also like to point out that, from his position on the wall, planty was probably at his desk when he got planted.

Mitigating response here: investigate the computer first and learn anything of value, then poke the body.

Welp. o_o

I'm on board with checking the computer, and poking.

We already had a raven at Howler's. I is stupid. :P

Umm... 0.o
Is that the entire room, besides the creepy plant guy and computer?

Camera Golem, use poke!

And on subjects not blood-plant related. Even though they haven't seen each other in a few years Fuse would probably still recognize Howler. What of the others though, Were there pictures in the news or do they only know his name and address?

On a side note... considering the theme of this comic...
We could get a Texas Horned Lizard as a pet.
I mean second up would be the Spanish Ribbed Newt...
They'd both make really creepy and well-themed pets.

Tailless whip scorpion, axolotl, gharai, *twitch* goliath bird-eating spider, gila monster... why got plenty of options there.

we got. We. I'm not even on a phone. Autocorrect has invaded my fingers.

Perhaps autocorrect has invaded your heart. <3 ;)

Hmm. Was the hamadryad (male dryad) the source of the...plant infestation, or did it get 'injected' into him via the chest? Also, that canister looks somewhat like it might've been a source of the infestation - with the current angle, it's hard to determine if the plant is coming out/going into it, or if it's just broken.

It's Harold!

Oh Lordy that is... hmm. Yeah no that ain't good. Guess that's why a plant had A positive blood, but why would a man grow plants out of himself, this is very odd behavior. Wait, have we actually confirmed these are plants or did we just assume
