You begin to examine the glass panels. They peer into decently sized rooms, mostly empty except for random items--stuffed animals, sewing needles and thread, simple toys. There are lengthy documents pinned to each window.

The window on the right side of the room reads:

Subject is diffident. On sunny days the subject can be coaxed into partial body manifestations, will not cooperate in other weather conditions. When weather conditions are appropriate, subject will typically respond to specific songs (see document 35d). Rarely communicates audibly. Almost went unnoticed in initial environment.

UPDATE: As of Experiment Odin, subject is permanently locked in a full body manifestation. Expresses feelings of vulnerability. Fearful behavior has escalated as a result of constant exposure. Researchers are advised to try and earn the subject's trust.

UPDATE: As of Incident F, subject is completely uncooperative. Refuses to communicate or engage with tests. Songs and weather conditions no longer make a difference. It is recommended that the subject be allowed free roam of holding cell to try and re-establish confidence."

The window in the middle is cracked. Its attached document reads as follows:

Subject is cooperative and communicative. Subject possesses few memories of previous life but is aware of her original's death. Can form a full or partial body manifestation on request, but only for brief periods.

UPDATE: As of Experiment Odin, subject is permanently locked in a full body manifestation. Subject is more cooperative and communicative than ever. Site One is recommending more advanced testing involving subject.

UPDATE: Unauthorized experiment was performed on subject. Subject's manifestation was rendered unstable for forty four minutes before dissipating. All further tests suggest the subject no longer exists. The unauthorized experiment will be documented as Incident F."

The last window, on the far left of the room, has an attached document as well. It reads as follows:

Subject is cooperative but, due to a mischievous nature, unreliable. Can form a partial body manifestation when the weather outside is rainy, with heavier storms making manifestations less taxing. Subject will manipulate objects on request regardless of weather, and responds most readily to sewing tools (see document 40b).

UPDATE: As of Experiment Odin, subject is permanently locked in a full body manifestation. Mischievous nature is occasionally problematic, and the subject has voiced an interest in leaving the holding cell. It is recommended that researchers watch the subject closely and show increased caution with testing.

UPDATE: As of Incident F, subject has become hostile and uncooperative. After three separate attempts to escape the holding cell (including one physical assault of a researcher), the subject has been confined to their assigned transport cylinder on a permanent basis. Subject should not be released into holding cell unless absolutely necessary, and should be regarded as dangerous."

Interesting. Tesla might be about the facility somewhere, and if we can find more information on this "Incident F", destroying these ghosts may be possible. Or if particularly informative, recreating Faraday.

Keep moving, little homunculus, there is another door to open.

So not only are they using these generators to power the rest of the facilities, they're also using them for experimentation on three strains of the same Ghosty Girl. Okay. We should keep an eye out for anything holding more information about Experiment Odin, and Incident F, too.

Let's head through that door! (I don't know how all of this geometry works. Would this lead to something akin to the Error room? Is that the door's actual location..? Maybe I'm just not understanding the layout as much as I should.

Aside from Edison, who we know is contained, these ghosts don't seem so bad. See if we can find anything more about Incident F, and if we see any signs of Tesla, see if we can communicate with them (which may be difficult with a flesh golem ':D )

Immediate plan: go through the next door. Overarching goal: try to find information on Experiment Odin, Incident F, and Tesla & Faraday.

Especially Experiment Odin. Full manifestation of electrical energy seems like it would have interesting implications.

Man, this is like an SCP or something
