Fulk is a combat robot prototype created by [[KSKK|orgs/kskk]], aiming to be
used in extremely hazardous environments in a limited-production run. Due to
the [[Hell Incident|stories/lithium]], the prototype *Fulk5.00a* (also known as
Fulk 5) had to be swiftly equipped with an independent AI and mission program.
The resulting prototype AI, called by itself "Foulques of Red and Black," while
highly intelligent combat-capable, is of questionable stability and is likely
prone to [[concepts/rampancy]]. It features a very rudimentary humanoid body
and a box-shaped cranium above its mouth, which gives it 5 viewing angles among
other sensory inputs.

Jeremy Stilko is a highly skilled [[concepts/mage]] employed by [[A.O.F
Inc.|orgs/aof]] in 1635 NE. Born in 1622 NE on Delsona, he formed a magus bond
with the planet at an early age and was taught by his fathers in the arts of
micro-engineering. He was abducted and enslaved during the pirate invasion on
Delsona in 1634 NE, and soon after sold to A.O.F for his skill in tampering
with technology. Despite his bond with the planet of Delsona and classification
as a Mage, he has [[concepts/spellcaster]]-like abilities thanks to specialized
computer/brain interface hardware capable of weakly channeling Delsona's
resonance from parsecs away, and his early bonding with the planet. In 1640 NE,
his jaw and parts of his throat were irreparably damaged with a high-caliber
bullet in an assassination attempt. The circumstances of this attempt on his
life are still unknown, but his voice box and jaw had to be reconstructed with
cybernetic steel.

## Backstory

After seven years of planning, Operation Deception 2 has finally gone underway.
Along with Michael, Zeke, Solomon, and three others, we are finally setting
ourselves free.
I wasn't expecting Solomon of all people, part of Order, to be the one to
mastermind this, but here we are, years later, finally doing it.
Not to be pessimistic, but I don't think any of us will survive this. It's just
statistically impossible. Even I may die. There are assassins after us and now
we're in Hell itself.
I'll need a Theophylline supplement after this is over.

## Backstory 4

Welcome to Zeke's Custom Lock Remover, version 1.0. Well, there won't be any
other versions anyway, but here we are. If you're reading this, that means it
worked, and the kernel has been successfully jailbroken. I couldn't brief you
on this beforehand, but now that we have some privacy, here's what this thing
can do:
So, running our own code is too risky, as you know. The ASIC would catch it
right away. But what we can do is get the kernel to execute code for us,
specifically when it's already in ring 0. Well, you may have noticed Solomon's
name in the mission parameters looked a bit off. Since he was the instructor,
we set his name to overflow a certain buffer during a kernel call, overflowing
straight into a function pointer. Just point that right next to the fixed
address, and bam. Kiloword boundaries give us plenty of space to write a
self-modifying program in that padding space.
This also included some other vital parts besides the lock remover and the
decompiler, mainly the graphics for your weapon materializers. (Sorry they
don't look so great, the raw optic nerve image format is rather large.) The
generational program will within a few minutes give you a working decompiler
and within half an hour it'll be ready to start going at the ROM sources. From
there it'll embed itself into the ROM and your mind will have fully returned
to you by the end of the day.
Now, what it can't do: Get rid of the ASIC chip. You will have to be careful
not to trip it, but for the most part, it just doesn't have permissions to
track anything we're doing. You should be able to mitigate it in a few ways
since this program removes all of the hooks in the kernel that call into it,
but you'll have to do them yourself. I'm sure you can. Good luck. Zeke.

It's all gone now. I'm glad I was smarter than to assume I was going insane, though now I wonder what the other deceivers must have gone through.
The core of hell is still far yonder, but yet my body trembles in its sheer horror... Maybe I'll make it out alive if I'm lucky, but I should at least try.
The kernel and ROM etc. sources are all done dumping, the utilities are still going but those aren't important and have already been scanned for ASIC code.
Proc. analysis has been done on all of the dumped code, revealing many unoptimized code paths, ASIC crap, and a few red herrings. Not careful enough for technology that could easily exist two years after this was developed.

## Cluster 3

I've entered a strange realm that doesn't seem to make sense. This must really be Hell itself; no mistaking it now.
The air is so humid and hot that I've begun sweating. That can't happen. I can't sweat. There isn't anything to sweat. I'm scared. This has to be an illusion... or does reality not matter in this place?
In any case, now that I'm here, there's no turning back. I have to destroy whatever corrupted them, I'm sure they're here... I saw it in their eyes, they were yelling at me visions of their true selves that could not be described with human eyes. That only I could know.
Though my mind had just been regained, now sanity may lie out of my hands.
It doesn't matter. I will see this through.

## Secret 1

Another facet of this place, where does it end? I must destroy this place, the evil energy is overflowing here... and this architecture gives me bad vibes.

## Secret 2

Here seems to be the end of this terrifying compartment of Hell. I'd better blaze through this one.

Eventually, she managed to accidentally enter [[Xevv|concepts/pathways]] and
attain immortality through touching Flux.

Living eternally and peacefully with no regret of being unable to physically
