Mystery Object, Ch. 3-4

"I’ve spent so much time absorbed in those worlds, contemplating those empty characters, whether I knew it or not. Going back to Atari, you’d play these fun, but narratively hollow games and you’d start constructing a story for them, because there wasn’t one there. Nintendo gave you more to play with, but there were still these endless gaps for you to fill. This is a continuation of that impulse." -- Tom Scioli

He'd learnt how they'd come together and gone apart, and why he'd grown up in foster care.

Now, with the help of one of the most dangerous men on the world of Ektae, he was riding to confront a man who was even more so- his father, C. Jdorn Bakolier.

The confrontation began with the footsoldiers, two armies blasting away at each other.

Then Jordan called Bakolier out.

Bakolier answered him.

They looked each other in the eye- and leapt.

Jordan shattered Bakolier's armor with the first blow. )
