The squad were briefed on the way to the mission, saying that Maxwell Raynor had kidnapped Brodie and there may be cult involvement. The squad loaded up on torches and approached the building, owned by 'Outer Bay Shipping', with each Section 31 officer accompanied by a member of the firearms team. Basira was teamed up with Goodman.
The squads broke into the building. After Basira looked through the boxes, they heard a scream of rage. Turning, Basira saw someone dressed in black robes. Goodman fired at the figure, missing. She saw one of the sectioned officers, Leo Altman, heading down some stairs with some of the armed officers.
At the bottom of the staircase there was an old rusted steel door with darkness pouring out from the bottom of the doorway. As she approached the door, she could hear a crashing and churning like a waterfall. They opened the door and, without going through it, abruptly all the lights went out. Basira shone her torch which didn't seem to illuminate as much as they should.
It was cold and still in that room, and dark dust floated in the air. Basira's light went out and she turned on a new one. They continued through the room for a long time.
Goodman's torch suddenly landed on an old robed, blind Maxwell Raynor. Next to him was an old, stained chair with Callum Brodie attached to it with wire, his face locked mid-scream. Darkness was flowing out of Maxwell's mouth like a thick fog. It creeped along the floor and started to crawl up Callum's body.
Goodman opened fire at Maxwell, and the sudden illumination showed that they were in a cathedral. All the dark liquid fell from Callum's body and hit Altman. Goodman fired at Maxwell again, downing him, stopping the noise. The lights snapped on, and a woman ran over to Altman, stabbing him in the throat before being shot by the police officers.
Basira ran over to Leo, but it was too late. He was already bleeding out and had milky white eyes. The woman who attacked Leo was Natalie Ennis (from MAG 25). Two other cultists were killed and three more detained.
Basira suspects that this is linked to The People's Church of the Divine Host. Jonathan offers to give her more information, but she says that she's quitting the force. As she leaves, Jonathan asks her about Gertrude's tapes, but she leaves.
Post-Statement Follow-Up Edit
Jonathan cannot find anything about Outer Bay Shipping. He wonders how the police knew where to find Maxwell after he'd been off the radar for 20 years.
