“Can you fill in the blanks?” Coil asked him.
I have a feeling this guy might be a parahuman with computer powers, but he might just be a regular computer wizard.
“Probably. Will take some time. There’s encryption. Good encryption. Maybe a few days, with the full team working on it?”
Never mind, sounds mundane. Though maybe Tattletale can help them figure out the encryption keys.
“Most likely it is Dragon’s work,” Coil spoke. “Let’s assume it’ll take a week, minimum. Perhaps Tattletale will be able to assist.”
Coil and I are on the same page about that, it seems.
“Priority number one, I want the data on the Slaughterhouse Nine.”
Hm, interesting. I guess that makes sense - now that they’ve shown up in Brockton Bay, he’d want to know as much as possible about them.
Besides, it’s possible the Slaughterhouse are going up against Coil rather than vice versa. We don’t know who the corpses were; they could be Coil’s people. That might also explain why the Travelers were at one of the corpsehouses - they may have had something planned with Coil’s people at that location and then arrived to find them hanging on the walls.
I felt a chill, but didn’t say anything. Was he intending to hire them? It would be a huge mistake in my book, if he was.
I doubt it, though he does have a precedent for hiring nomadic heavy hitters.
