You suggest that Dr. Finch loot the bodies.

He acquires two pistols, one cell phone, and finds...

syringes?

The needles have little caps over them so they can be carried safely. The fluid is an orange-red color--darker than Chatter, lighter than blood, with a strange pattern swirling inside it. It's definitely not Save the Queen.

You suggest that Dr. Finch follow the agent. He nods to himself, but it takes him a moment to actually follow through--he breathes deeply, he psyches himself up, and after several seconds of getting pumped he finally wills himself to climb through the hole in the door. He begins carefully making his way down the hall, peeking into other rooms on the way to the living room.

You land your raven closer to the house in an attempt to see inside. The windows are thick and tinted, but when the raven gets close enough you can see inside. The agent is in the living room, and has her gun pointed at one of Shirai's guards, but you can't hear what she's saying through the glass--she seems to be trying to talk to the man.

He's not acting... normal. Not even by the standards of Gesenai's Shirai's goons.

You can see the man shaking, leaning over, clenching his teeth. He sometimes grabs onto the chair behind him, like he thinks he could need the support. You're not sure what's happening to him.

why do I sense a chestburster vibe going on here? Though all said and done it might be a good idea to uh, "invite" the good officer over to have a chat with your mom's Red. Anyways give Finch a line with Fuse, maybe he's seen or heard of it before. Unlikely but worth a shot.... come to think of it why haven't those two shared their drug knowledge with each other yet? Even professionals can learn a thing or two from jury-riggers so to speak.... come to think of it between Fuse's general knowledge on street drugs and Finch's equipment and expertise they've got a ready money market of sorts there.

keep the syringes safe, we can try and figure out what it is later, but i'm willing to bet actual money on it being some form of berserker serum, based on how this guy is acting. warn finch that the goon in the living room is obviously on something. be prepared to come in shooting. agent lady isn't going to be able to talk him down. she could get seriously hurt, or killed. save the lady finch! you can do it!

also, ditch the cell phone. i think we've learned our lesson, there. chances are it's chipped like the ones from the lower tiers.

We could quickly rip the numbers if anything looks of importance before tossing it.
Though I suspect most of the numbers should be the same, if it's the same employer.
Mayhaps one group only sent 5 guys over, and the others were from some other group.... Hmm.

A mixture of chatter and the bio-printed blood?

Ravens are incredibly intelligent birds. If someone in our party had the ability to read lips, we could transfer that to the raven to read what they're saying.

Should we warn the officer? And if so, what do we have to do that with? Finch could yell in...

If that vial is gonna turn him into one of those meat bodyguards (prophet's buddy thing) or a meat spider etc... we'll need to be able to leave the house and not get trapped in the lab again.
