Vlad stands and shows his prescence
o Invoke “I’m from the government …” and “smooth up” to be safe
§ “I have a gun but I don’t want to use it … I just made a deal with
the authorities so anything you do will probably come back to
bite you … can we talk about this.”
Leo: Show yourself
Vlad: Agree not to shoot me
Leo: That’s as much up to you as it is up to me
Vlad: Stands up
o Who are you?
Leo: Myrmidon investigating THIS terrorist who YOU are harboring
Vlad: Desmond brought him here its ok!

o Compel “My last mission” to tell Vlad what is worrying him
§ “Look I got hired on to work for psy and it seemed like a good
job … a lot more than I bargained for … mentally damaged
beyond stress … and I don’t want to do it anymore for the sake
of my person.”
Leo: What is psy having you do that is damaging your mind?
Vlad: I’m not going back in those again … I’m getting weird dreams … seeing
things from somewhere else.
Leo: Compel “Take back my humanity” for sympathy and to connect the dots
and want to figure out whats going on with Psy.

him you can make harboring this guy look small.
Vlad: Looks like hes trying to leave the union?
