The Clinger shot one of the hostages in pure rage, killing him. Hirion then turned, and in morion, shot every one of the hostages. Except for one, actually. Vigil. A Trooper moved over to shoot the former TITAN bearer, but Hirion held up his hand.
"Do not kill him. It would not be honorful. Plus, I will try to extract some data from him. All of the ADU have mental shields." The ancient being turned to the camera and pointed at the dead bodies. He said, "Don't say I didn't warn you this would happen!"
He looked at a Cyborg and said, "Mobilize all Small UFOs to protect this building. All that matters is me extracting data from Vigil and fleeing. We are out of our hostages. We have no more leverage with the humans. Launch an assault on the Mobile HQ. Oh, and fire the disruptor turret at any thing that gets close. Try to get it to disintegrate the Mobile HQ."
Hirion stood at Vigil, who lay unconscious. Hirion's goo body shrunk back into the Orion seed and the Clinger moved over to the head of Vigil. He wrapped his tentacles around his head, and then plunged deep into Vigil's mind.
The mental shields were weakened by the fact that Vigil was incapacitated, but were still strong. Hirion slammed his astral form's tentacles into the wall repeatedly, breaking a small hole in the wall. The astral form leapt inside of it.
The memories of Vigil manifested themselves as endless rows of filing cabinets, filled to the brim with stuffed folders. Hirion thought about what he was looking for and then found himself in front of a cabinet.
With great force and effort, Hirion opened up the cabinet. He pulled out one file, which was the heaviest thing he had ever lifted, and absorbed it into himself. The Clinger smiled. He had absorbed some secrets of ADU.
Hirion wrenched himself back into the real world. His body was sweating, and felt very, very weak. The effort of extracting the memories had been the hardest thing he had ever done. A Trooper picked him up and started to hold the Clinger. Normally Hirion would have objected, but he was much, much too weak.
Hirion croaked, "Get the disruptor turret and the generator and get out of here. We can't let the humans get them, and there is no reason to stay here. Spare Vigil's life. He is a great combatant. I have honor."
So a couple of things: One, I hope that doing what I did is okay. I extracted memories, but it obviously took a lot out of Hirion. Two, Can I still destroy minds completely? I mean, here is a comparison. Memory extracting is like carefully sneaking into a building and removing all of the files from the cabinets. Destroying a mind is blowing the building up. Three, The first profile, Squishy Frog/sukapony's, has a mention of Blacktron. What would be the status of that in game?
