Sunday 27th, January 2019 - "A Conversation about the Good Doctor"
Colonel Costa is not easy to find, which might be odd in a warehouse with an open floor plan and a lot of empty space. After Dr. Kripke's earlier encounter with her she seemed to disappear. After awhile he has to buckle down and ask one of the glaring soldiers as to her whereabouts. There is a long, uncomfortable silence during which Levi isn't certain whether he will get an answer or a punch in the nose. It ends though, with the man escorting Levi to a section of the warehouse where some crates are piled up. There he moves a board aside revealing a improvised room where the Colonel is packing some gear into a backpack. Dr. Kripke starts to talk about meeting him at the med-bay but Silvia interrupts.Originally Posted by OOC
"We may talk now. It will have to be brief."
She offers a nod to the man who brought Dr. Kripke to her, and the board is slid back into place as he leaves the two of you alone in the room with crates for walls. When he mentions his ideas about traitors, capture, and assassination, she raises an eyebrow, giving him the impression that Levi was missing something with his logic. The Colonel did not comment though. She listens to Levi speak, but continues to pack items into the backpack until it is full and zipped up. About the time Levi finishes talking. At that point she rests her emerald eye on the older man and takes a moment to think before she starts speaking.
"No one really knows the Praetors … even a former Praetor. Praetor Null is distant and aloof. Dr. Sokolov wears masks. Around Imperator he was the loyal aid and advisor. With Praetor Null he is the rival. With the public he was sciences' benevolent champion. At work with other scientists and engineers he was an elitist aristocrat. To those who entered his service he was a doting patron. My impression? He came off as lacking emotion and empathy, but was very good at faking it. The way Praetor Null talks about him … there was a lot I did not see, and do not want to know about."
