Souvenir: Omega level
Your Omega level clearnce badge allows you access to some of the
goverment's most secret files. But it does more than that. It reminds
you of the time you defeated:
The Organ Grinders
It all began after you stopped the Rikti from stealing some human
blood and organs. It seemed the aliens were up to something big.
Your contact assumed it had something to do with the Rikti mutagen,
and you went to stop them from stealing some chemicals. But the chemical
warehouse turned out to be a 5th Column front company. Several defeated
soldiers later, you were still no further toward discovering what the
Rikti were up to.
While you were on your wild goose-step chase, Dr. Snider, a renowned
transplant specialist, was kidnapped by the Rikti. You tracked his pager
down to a sewer junction, but he wasn't there. The Rikti had him, their
plan was closer to completion, and you had no idea where to turn next.
Your contact got you in touch with Marvin Weintraub, an inventor who
had a Psychic Probe that can read the thoughts of defeated Rikti. Using
this probe, you found out that Dr. Snider was being held prisoner in
Brickstown. When you freed him from the Rikti, he told you that he was
forced to perform transplant surgery on living Rikti soldiers, replacing
decaying organs with fresh new ones.
Your contact then put you in touch with Rebecca Brinell at SERAPH.
She invited you to tour a SERAPH lab where dead Rikti were taken for
examination. When you arrived there, the Rikti were attacking the lab.
You saved the scientists, and the huge body of data they had gathered on
In recognition of this act of heroism, you were granted Omega level
clearance by the Vice President and SERAPH. Ms. Brinell was now able to
tell you what SERAPH had learned about the Rikti: that they were nothing
more than highly mutated humans, and that the Rikti homeworld was not an
alien planet, but an alternate Earth. You also learned that the more
powerful the Rikti, the more atrophied their internal organs were upon
You used the Psychic Probe again, this time looking for any
information about human organs. Eventually you got the info you were
looking for, and invaded a secret Rikti base. There you found that they
were mutating human organs into Rikti ones, and transplanting them into
their soldiers. Apparently the mutated human organs didn't atrophy from
overuse like the Rikti organs did. Hopefully, you have ended this
operation for good.
