Dept. of Psychology & Psychoses/Employment Record #3211/2a/Operative Status

Date: 3.9.903
From: Dr. Kirstin Randolph, Department of Psychology and Psychoses
To: Department of Employment
Re: Operative Craig Ferguson, Strike Squad, Team Spartan (Record #3211/2a), SCL: 9B.5

Ferguson appears to be making very little progress in returning to normal Operative life (work, improving his personal situation). He does very little other than talk about his plans to move past his crippling self-doubt and start recovery. He is very convincing when making these claims. When Ferguson tells you for the twentieth time how he is going to "get well, get back to work and find a nice place to live," you want so much to believe him even though the previous nineteen times he did nothing more than talk about it. Each time nothing comes to fruition, he returns to the same bitterness and self-pity he had on checking in.
This cyclical self-destructive extreme optimist/pessimist behavior, if unchecked, is likely to lead to further psychological issues. Bipolar disorder, paralyzing vacillation, egrophobia are all possible if a treatment is not found.

Operative Ferguson will remain on "medical leave" until further notice.

Operative Ferguson will receive a full spectrum of antidepressants in addition to continued counseling. If course of treatment is not successful, more extreme methods will be suggested for consideration.

Attending Physician,
Dr. Kirstin Randolph, SCL 4B.1

So maybe my initial assessment was off. This guy is fucked up like Hogan's Goat. I haven't seen quite such a spectacular meltdown in a while. This guy is throwing a pity part for the ages and I'm not sure what to do to snap him out of it. I may have to drag out "Old Sparky" for a little EST. Exploratory surgery may not be out of the question.

Re: Vehicle requisition and weapon possession of Operative Craig Ferguson SCL 9B.7
Date: 3/9/903

Due to Mr. Ferguson's extended stay in Bethlehem Asylum, his vehicle (Lancer Motors 03337 Third Eye News Van) had been tagged for return to the company motor pool to fill vehicle distribution shortages. The vehicle was found in unacceptable condition. The following damage was noted on impound:

- Extensive non-spec paint/graffiti on majority of the body
- Extensive front end damage consistent with a head-on collision with a pole and/or static barrier
- Fire damage to the rear of the vehicle
- Extensive damage from small-arms fire

- The interior of the vehicle was converted into a permanent living space in clear violation of the Operative's Handbook (Section 14B Paragraph 3).
-Upholstery and interior saturated with a pungent odor that can be best described as "taco-based."

An inventory of personal effects in the vehicle turned up a FEN204 that was reported missing during a BPN worked by Ferguson (BPN #: HS/48761/SU) It can be safely assumed that he stole the weapon during the BPN.

In response to the damaged vehicle, Mr. Ferguson will be banned from requisition and use of company vehicles for a period of no less than twelve (12) months. Mr. Ferguson will also be charged the cost of repairing/refurbishing the vehicle (1250c).

In response to the weapon, Mr. Ferguson will be charged with Intentional Misappropriation of Company Resources and Possession of a Weapon Without Proper Documentation. He will be tried in absentia. Penalty will be a 0.2 deduction of SCL and a fine of 250c.

Issuing Department: Shiver Unit Organization
Color Code:WHITE
BPN #: SHS/9758076/DT
Surveillance: Station Analysis
Squad/Operative Undertaking: Team Spartan
Date Issued/Date Completed: 2/6903, 2/7/903

  • Squad dispatched to Lower Downtown Level 25, Wentmore Sector to ascertain whereabouts of missing Shiver Sleeper Unit.

  • After checking Shiver communication logs for APC, Squad investigated site of factory bombing. Interview with on-site Shiver Forensic team resulted in no useful information.

  • Began search for gang “Killer Headaches,” suspected of attacking APC in retaliation for previous altercation with Shiver Sleeper squad.

  • During search, squad ambushed by unidentified gang. Gang member captured and interrogated. Interrogation revealed possible black market supplier for “Killer Headaches.”

  • Squad radioed for Shiver Fire team dispatch to location of ambush to suppress blaze caused by gang members. Fire contained with minimal property damage.

  • Squad traveled to location of suspected black market supplier*. Interview revealed “Killer Headaches” attempted to purchase heavy weapons. No transactions were made. Interview also revealed names and locations of two other possible suppliers.

  • Squad traveled to first supplier*. Interview showed further proof that “Killer Headaches” intended to purchase heavy weapons to use in APC attack. Gang apparently lacked resources to make purchase, instead opting for small arms. Interview also revealed location of local gang hang out.

  • Squad traveled to “Combat Chef” restaurant where employees informed squad of overheard discussion of a planned attack on a Shiver APC on the Hutchinson block.

  • Squad traveled to Hutchinson block and began canvassing the area for the Shiver Sleeper Squad.

  • Squad discovered group of Scavs stripping Shiver Sleeper APC.

  • Squad subsequently came under heavy fire but was able to drive off Scavs. NOTE: Scav weapon was recovered and turned over to Stearman Ballistic Labs for analysis.

Collateral Damage to SLA Property:MINIMAL. Fire started in civilian area. Firearms discharged in a civilian area. Any damage mitigated by prompt dispatch of Shiver Fire Unit and extenuating circumstances.

Squad Fatalities:None. Operative Tawna required medivac services due to loss of limbs in firefight.

Conclusion:Search of the area revealed bodies of several gang members and nine of the ten Sleeper Shivers. The Shiver Sergeant for the unit is still missing and presumed dead. Forensic analysis of the scene shows that “Killer Headaches” were outfitted with DarkNight heavy weapons. It can be safely assumed that the gang was subverted into joining DarkNight. The gang disabled the APC with heavy weapons and was in the process of engaging the Shiver Sleeper Unit when Scavs ambushed and finished off both sides. Team Spartan, responding to the sounds of the firefight, was able to drive off the Scavs before they could successfully strip any equipment from the field.

BPN satisfactorily completed. Individual payout+recovery bonus: 930c/Operative. SCL +0.5/Operative.

ADDENDUM: *Identities of black market suppliers withheld. Value as contacts/informants outweighs benefits of incarceration of these individuals.
