BG VOICE: Load up! Let's get outta here! Come on, load up!

Cpl. Lane (O.S.): You heard 'em, we're moving out. Come on, move it.

Cpl. Lane (O.S.): Move it, move it.

Lt. Stewart: Field Note One Seven Three Five. We're shutting down Observation Site 38-dash "Oh," overlooking Site Thirty-Eight, a series of structures along the Old Belknap Road inhabited by a small number of adult subjects and a growing number of mutans adolescents, or in current vernacular — Newts.

BG VOICE: Hey, move that shit! Let's go! Move it!

Cpl. Lane: Move it — you heard 'em — get this equipment back to the chopper. Come on, move it.

Lt. Stewart: Side Note — we've lost equipment at this site once already to Drifters — civilians — and I'll be damned if we're gonna lose more. There's a whole camp of them over at the Hot Springs, they'll steal anything if it isn't nailed down. And, sometimes, if it is.

Lt. Stewart: As noted in Field Notes, uh — One Five Six Three through One Five Eight Four, we've been tracking this group of adolescents for three months now. According to GPS data, subjects have points of origin as far away as Farewell, Tumalo, and Chemult.

Lt. Stewart: All subjects are now classified as habitator-tectum — or roof-dwelling — a recently evolved behaviour that helps them evade the attacks of the more aggressive adults.

Lt. Stewart: Recovered footage confirms that they remain mostly scavengers, showing aggression only if their territory is invaded or if they sense an opportunistic target — they seem to smell blood from a wounded adult the same way sharks smell blood in the water.

Lt. Stewart: Note to Dr. Anderson that we're sending over the last of the blood samples. Hopefully they'll help us understand how these individuals escaped the near ninety percent mortality rates we've seen for all subjects under the age of twelve.
