Sicarius07The kid at the table brightened further.
" Yeah, that's cool. Here you go."
He hands you the Nerv cell phone. It is a bit scratched up and the battery is dead, but otherwise it doesn't look too bad off.
" Oh, yeah, you never saw those? " So cool! Hang on, I saved one of the best ones on my other phone. Good thing too, they got removed the next day.
He produces a model with a wide touch screen and navigates to a media player, then offers it to you as the brief (3 minutes and change long, it appears) video plays. Due to proximity to collapsing buildings or some other unnamed hazard, the cameraman's focus was obviously less on framing and composing his scene well and more on mere survival.
The action of the video is blurry and indistinct, but you think you recognize the closing moments of your battle with Zuriel. The poor resolution of the home video does little justice to your memories of the other Evas and the monstrous polyhedral arrangement of malign geometry that you battled. In fact on this screen Zuriel looks like nothing so much as a weird hazy blur in the air that might easily be missed for all of the shaking and grainy video compression artifacts of the rest of the footage. Intervening buildings and the constant lunging and motion of the combatants means that the camera stays focused on any individual EVA for no longer then 2 seconds at most, and half of the time it is out of focus. There is no accompanying sound.
The kid watches along with you for the first half a minute, making no editorial comments and instead observing Chloe's reactions with surreptitious side-glances, before becoming involved in a furious text-messaging war with his earlier cell-phone, leaving the video to you.
Samaelryn, Ekman, Mask_De_HAs Amanda wheeled closer to Jack she could see that he was accompanied. Sitting at a bench in front of him was a taller girl roughly your age, with long unkempt dark hair and wearing a slightly rough navy-blue sweater. Her gaze is directed at the ground, and she seems to have grabbed Jack's sleeve in a plaintive hand-hold.
Meanwhile from the opposite direction, just winding his way around a preserved fragment of the Sphinx's face, comes Renton, obviously intent on approaching the two as well. Suddenly he stops, his hand digging nonchalantly into a pocket. Then he retrieved his cell phone and took a phone call, pacing around the foot of the display out of your hearing distance.
Mask_De_HI'll let you decide who is important enough to warrant Renton's attention in a brief phone conversation, as well as the substance of the call and it's duration (ie. how long before you return to the scene). Doctor MacShea or Renny (assuming that the fragments of her distaff personality in Renton's head don't have some weird psychic link to her separate physical body and 'soul', which only makes sense) are two likely candidates
