The team is sent to steal a useful Changeling-aiding drug from a Universal Omnitech facility. Shred leaves Moly off this one, sending Nil instead. When they arrive, they find that it’s in security lockdown. Quil uses his magic to let them sneak in, where they find the researchers apparently suffering extreme cases of SURGE changes, many in unstable mental states, due to a prototype magic reactor and failed shielding. They recover the drugs, but see that an Omnitech security team has arrived and seems to be silencing witnesses. They remain unseen, but help an avian Changeling named Jaran, along with his coworker, to escape before they leave as well.
