Pixie Dust - Scene 13

-I have private business in Chagoth, and I need some information that is… somehow inside "that"- Commissar Bryce points at the armored container.

 -Ohhh! That`s a Techno-Organic-Processor, isn`t it?- The old man smiles and switches on some holo-proyectors in his personal desktop cogitator. -I have been wanting to get my hands on one of those for decades...-
The psyker woman looks at him with an arched eyebrow -A what?

-Basically, it`s a machine adept who voluntarily leaves pretty much all of his… “meaty parts” behind in order to become a powered-up brain inside a can. TOPs work hundreds of times faster than a regular cogitator, but… -Aegor makes a little stop and looks at the container on the floor- ...I have heard it can be done with unwilling adepts too.-

The man finishes typing in the cogitator and looks at the Commissar. In the air appear some rotating models of machine-like bodies.
-I have seen why you are here, Commissar Bryce. Sadly, with just a few hours in advance we only could find one spinal-matrix interface, and these are all the… replacements I can provide for you. -
The old man wrinkles his face in a wolf-like grin- Also, as all over this planet there is no other place where you can get something like this, I must say the price will be absolutely outrageous and cost you dearly.-
Before Katharine can say anything in response, Aegor points at the holographic models and nods.
-So, which one is it going to be? I have no much more time for you, I`m afraid. I have some other matters to tend to.-
