Registered Phenomena Code: 008

Object Class: Alpha-Yellow

Hazard Types: Mechanical Hazard

Containment Protocols: RPC-008 is to be held within the high security containment vault at Site-004. Testing with RPC-008 requires level 3 clearance. Be warned that test subjects affected by RPC-008 will take on hostile and violent actions. The threat of an uncontained device similar to RPC-008 is marked as HIGH by Authority. Should any Authority personnel exhibit anomalous insanity or behavior, ASF should be deployed to research the potential uncontained device. The chemical vials within RPC-008 should be refilled immediately prior to experimentation.

Description: RPC-008 is an electronic and chemically operated device held within a 0.3 m x 0.8 m x 0.9 m black carrying case. RPC-008 is powered by four (4) 6V 4.5 Ah batteries in parallel or optionally, an external power source may be plugged in. A copper-██████ alloy antenna included with RPC-008 must be assembled in order for the device to work.

RPC-008 can be used to influence a person mentally. Various operations such as: inducing schizophrenia, altering brain stem functions, implanting thoughts or controlling the subject's mind are possible. A modified soundboard is used to operate RPC-008. When adjusted, the dials and buttons on the soundboard result in RPC-008 synthesizing various neurotransmitters and injecting them into the air. When these neurotransmitters pass through the antenna, anywhere from ~30% to ~75% will disappear.

In order to affect a target, electrodes must be linked between the target's temples and RPC-008. After this, a 'mind-link' will be established and RPC-008 will be able to influence the target from a distance of up to 120 km depending on atmospheric conditions and physical obstructions.

Six (6) vials of various organic chemicals are contained within the case and the said chemicals are consumed when RPC-008 is operated. The following chemicals are:
• Benzene in a one-hundred (100) ml vial
• Methylamine in a two-hundred (200) ml vial
• Compressed methane in a fifty (50) ml vial with a rubber hose connection
• Lithium ion solution in a one-hundred (100) ml vial
• Compressed nitrogen gas in a two-hundred (200) ml vial
• Compressed hydrogen gas in a four-hundred (400) ml vial

Thus far, two-hundred-and-thirty-seven (237) people have been affected by RPC-008 outside of Authority supervision. An additional twelve (12) have been tested on with Authority approval.

Addendum: Engagement report:

RPC-008 came into the Authority's knowledge during Dr. █████ Jefferson's investigation of several insane asylums across the state of Oklahoma. Dr. Jefferson suspected that a memetic pathogen was contaminating the patients and causing them to develop paranoia of a mind control machine. ASF squadron 'Pallbearer' was deployed to assist Dr. Jefferson with the containment of the asylum patients when Pallbearer noted unusual interference with their communications equipment. More personnel were deployed to investigate. Field scientists correlated the patients' activity levels with the intensity of the interference. It was then determined that an external force was causing the cases of insanity.

Pallbearer traced down the signal to an apartment building in Tulsa. The apartment was found abandoned and vacated by the residents who had used it both as a home and as a laboratory. Under the disguise of US Marshalls, operatives retrieved the identities and license plate numbers of the suspects. Police in Oklahoma and neighboring states were informed that the suspects were defendants fleeing trial. Non-Authority police officers in Texas arrested the suspects PoI # 582, 583, 585 and confiscated the device now designated as RPC-008.
