Notable Foes


Marshal Brass

Wyvern's been stealing some high-tech gear from Dr. Egon's labs.

Sorry. I misspoke.

I meant, Dr. Aeon's labs. I think that echo guy is involved again. I need it investigated. Pay's good as always. Interested?

As usual, this is on the QT. Your involvement is deniable. There will be no assistance from Arachnos other than my information. Clear?

Wyvern will do another raid soon. I want every head caved in. If you find out why they're doing this, tell me. Professor Echo has some kind of plan. I want to know what it is.

Part 1: Defeat all Wyvern tech thieves
@ Cap au Diable Wyvern

Acording to Brass, this base has been cleared out of most Arachnos personnel, so there shouldn't be anyone here to see your involvement. Anyone by Wyvern, that is.

Objective: This box held something important.

ClueTemporal Deflector

The device in this box is missing and has probably been taken by Wyvern agents under Professor Echo's orders, but some of the notes were left behind. Apparently this device was a left-over remnant from some of Dr. Aeon's old experiments in time travel. The Time Deflector could disrupt the energy of a time-traveller, changing the traveler's destination point in space and time. Aeon shelved it as useless because you needed to know the exact destination point the time traveller originally intended.

Professor Echo [Boss]
Professor Echo has been a thorn in Dr. Aeon's side for some time. No one knows where he came from or what his purpose is, only that he's determined to thwart Dr. Aeon at every turn.

Mission Complete: You stopped the raid and discovered what they were trying to steal.

Marshal Brass

A time deflector? Interesting. I'm going to keep this quiet. But this isn't over. Let me tell you about what Wyvern's been up to.

Do it

Marshal Brass

Wyvern agents known to work with professor Echo have been seen observing two unused Arachnos bases. They have yet to take direct action. I want you to investigate those bases. Find out why they're interested in them. Obliterate anyone who might stand in your way. Can you do that?

Good. That's why you make the big money.

The base should be empty. if it's not, destroy all opposition until it is. See if you can discover why Wyvern and Echo are interested in these two bases. Report to me when you're done.

Part 2: Defeat any intruders in base
@ Cap au Diable

Brass said this place wasn't inhabited, but he didn't say it was this much of a mess. What could be going on here?

Mission Complete: You found a note in a pool of slime. It looks important.

ClueA slime-covered note

You foun this note discarded in a pool of slime. It says:

'Remembered it being an unused base. Just not this one. Perhaps I could still make use of it?

To do:

2: Go back several weeks, clone army of Shivans here.

1: Go back before I do that, and remind self to build control mechanism into Shivan clones.

3: Spring Shivan ambush.

1.5: If ambush fails, jump back again and ready arrival location in 2nd base.

Marshal Brass

Alright, This is getting wierd. While you were busy, Wyvern moved into the other old base. We haven't attacke dyet. Don't want to flush them into hiding. I'd rather crush them in one place. I'd like to have you do it.

Catch Echo once and for all

Marshal Brass

Wyvern and Professor Echo are in that second abandoned base. This is a chance to get Echo once and for all. Get a whole gang together. I don't want him to get away.

Don't worry as much about gettign everyone. Concentrate on Echo. Find out what's going on here.

Part 3: Catch Prof. Echo
@ Cap au Diable

This is another unused Arachnos base. you have to wonder how many of these things they build and never use.

Professor Echo [Elite Boss]
Professor Echo has been a thorn in Dr. Aeon's side for some time. No one knows where he came from or what his purpose is, only that he's determined to thwart Dr. Aeon at every turn.
Dr. Aeon? [Boss]
This younger version of Professor Echo looks strangely familiar.

Mission Complete: You defeated Professor Echo, but saw something very disturbing.

You're sure that the other person looked like Dr. Aeon? This might make sense, with the time travel deflector. Honestly, I don't know what I should do with this yet. I'll report that you took care of Professor Echo. I'm going to have to think about what to do about Dr. Aeon. Either way, that's the last thing I have for you. You did well.
