Dr. Pierson's Research

Registered Phenomena Code: 228

Object Class: Beta-Orange

Hazard Types: Animated Hazard, Ecological Hazard, Organic Hazard, Regenerative Hazard, Transmutation Hazard, Sapient Hazard,

Containment Protocols: RPC-228 is currently contained within the Biological and Environment Wing (B&E) of Site-███, and is permitted to move freely, with security supervision, around the facility between 0800 to 2200 local time. Onsite personnel are required to socially interact with RPC-228 when encountering with RPC-228. If additional assistance is required in activities that relate to menial labor, personnel may request aid from RPC-228.

However, under no circumstances should RPC-228 be in proximity of any organic-plant based organisms while permitted to move freely around the facility. (See Incident Log 228.01)

Within every six hour period, Level 2 personnel assigned to RPC-228 are to open RPC-228's precut cranium and remove all instances of RPC-228-1 contain within RPC-228. During this process, assigned personnel are to wear a Level A hazardous material (Haz-Mat). Instances of RPC-228-1 are to be handled with extreme caution, and regarded as biohazardous materials.

Description: RPC-228 is a sapient entity that biologically resembles the Cucurbita pepo species. Measuring one meters in height, RPC-228 is capable of speech and performing humanoid movements, such as moving objects through the use of four constructed appendages similar to that of human limbs. While interacting with RPC-228, onsite personnel are advised to refer RPC-228 as Malvyn.

It has been noted by onsite psychologists that RPC-228 constantly seeks for attention throughout the day, relative to that of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). When RPC-228 lacks attention or is promptly ignored by subjects, RPC-228 will immediately become agitated and will influence the nearest plant-based organism to mutate neurologically and attack any subject around RPC-228.

RPC-228-1 refers to the designated instances of pumpkin seeds that are located within RPC-228's cranium. These pumpkin seeds, when coming into contact, manifests in a sporadic behavior causing roots to exponentially grow and penetrate through any surfaces. (See Addendum 228.01)

Discovery: RPC-228 was initially encountered by local authorities in the streets of ██████, Kansas. An MST was dispatched to contain and retrieve RPC-228, but had experienced difficulties on containing RPC-228. Fortunately, RPC-228 was coerced into voluntary containment when a negotiator persuaded RPC-228 into surrendering while in a fragile mental state.

During initial retrieval of RPC-228, RPC-228 revealed to field agents that it had been summoned by members of the Church of Malthus, and had been held within a bunker for several days. When the bunker was raided by MST-Foxtrot 04 ("Prey") and had captured Malthus operatives, many interrogated operatives reported that RPC-228 went on a rampage during capture within the bunker. (See Addendum 228.02)

Addendum 228.01: Notice From Dr. Schmidt

To: Researcher Christina Von.

From: Dr. Connor Schmidt.

Re: Biological Procedures w/ RPC-228-1 instances.

Researcher Von, I must remind you that you must handle RPC-228-1 with great care and diligence, as outlined to site procedures in regards to biohazardous materials. Immediately transfer the biological waste to the nearest incendiary or have an onsite security with a flamethrower to handle it.

Either way, just get rid of it without causing another incident like last time. If you don't know what I am talking about, see the included attachment below.

If you inquire anything in regards to RPC-228, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.

Addendum 228.02: After-Action Interview w/ Malthus Operative

0800 hours following the raid of Malthus bunker, many Malthus operatives were captured by the Authority to obtain information in regards to RPC-228, and other crucial information.

The following is an audio transcript of an interview between Agent Tom Bearing and a Malthus Operative.

Incident Log 228.01: 07/06/████ Incident

On the morning of June 7th, RPC-228 was roaming across the facility with security supervision. At around 1524 PM, RPC-228 was observed by security footage when Researcher Charles was then seen transporting some samples of flower plants near RPC-228 around the corner.

The following is a video transcript of the incident on June 7th, ████.
