Information Edit

FBI agent

Angus McQueen was the best and brightest FBI agent in years. He was given the task of infiltrating the group of homeless known as The Lost to determine what was affecting their minds. After almost a year under, Angus was almost completely converted, but his iron will allowed him to wrench himself free and report back. It took many months of debriefing and reconditioning, but Angus can now share his intimate knowledge of this terrifying Rikti process with the heroes of Paragon City

It is well to be working with you. Let us begin without delay.

Story Arc Edit

Division: Line Edit

Souvenir: C'Kelkah's ceremonial blade


This ceremonial Rikti blade was given to you by the Rikti Traditionalist leader C'Kelkah as a sign of her thanks. To you it is a memento, reminding you of the strange adventure so bizarre you call it by the Rikti name:

Division: Line

It all began when a strange Rikti dimensional experiment on the streets of the city turned into a pitched battle among the Rikti themselves! You went in to shut down the experiment and free civilians trapped between the warring sides.
Though the situation was contained in the end, you were left wondering why the Rikti would ever fight each other?

You next journeyed to a war-ravaged abandoned Earth to stop another Rikti interdimensional experiment. You fought Rikti fighting Rikti again, and discovered that one side had already damaged the other's portal equipment.

You received word that a member of the Lost, now known by the Rikti name Nen'Kulf, wanted to speak with you. Nen'Kulf was worried, however, that Rikti from another faction might try to stop the meeting. You arrived in time to save Nen'Kulf from other Rikti who had caught him, and he explained to you that the Rikti on Earth were starting to factionalize. The battles you'd seen were between the Traditionalist faction, who sought to rebuild the Rikti civilization of their home world on Earth, and the Restructurist faction, who want to create a new Rikti society to handle the current situation. Nen'Kulf also gave you the location of a Traditionalist leader.

Once Nen'Kulf information was confirmed you moved in and captured C'Kelkah, a Rikti dimensional travel scientist and one of the leaders of the Rikti Traditionalists. Curiously, you also found devices meant to disrupt interdimensional travel being prepared at the base.

Disturbing trends revealed in C'Kelkah's initial interrogation were reinforced when you discovered that Nen'Kulf had been granted a full Rikti conversion following C'Kelkah's capture. You went to capture the transformed Nen'Kulf during his first action as a full Rikti of the Lineage of War.

All plans were thrown into disarray when the Nemesis Army struck, kidnapping C'Kelkah! Nen'Kulf was killed in the attack as well. You went to recapture her from Nemesis, and found that the Rikti were already trying to do the same. Unfortunately, Nemesis had already moved C'Kelkah to another location.

With few leads on C'Kelkah's location, you hit the next best thing: the staging point for a Traditionalist Rikti operation to rescue C'Kelkah. Using information you found there, you were able to find C'kelkah's current location and rescue her from the Nemesis Army. C'Kelkah was very thankful, and though communication was difficult, tried to thank you and explain the differences between the Rikti factions from her point of view. She explained that while the Traditionalists wanted to recreate the stable society of their home, the Restructurists were led by power hungry leaders of the Lineage of War, who wished to build a society they could rule.

To show that she was willing to work in good faith, C'Kelkah provided the location of a facility the Restructurist Rikti used to convert Lost into new troops. You shut the place down and recovered several testimonial journals from Lost converts, including one written by Nen'Kulf.

Decryptions of Nemesis Army documents you found when recapturing C'Kelkah showed that Nemesis had planned on capturing a Restructurist leader as well. With information from C'Kelkah, you were able to update the plan and captured the Restructurist general Lu'Bew, as well as plans for future Rikti operations. More important, however, was the discovery of a Rikti who used magical powers!

When questioned about the mystic Rikti, C'Kelkah replied that some Lost converts had displayed an aptitude for arcane powers. The Traditionalists had not pursued this, but there were rumors that radical Restructurists had. There were even rumors that they'd captured a Circle of Thorns sorcerer and were forcing him to teach them magic. You investigated, and found out that the rumors were true. You captured a Circle mage called Otrant who told you that the Rikti were also interested in magical barriers.

You next intercepted a Restructurist Rikti interdimensional expedition, and learned from the readings of the Rikti devices that the barrier sealing off the Rikti home world was magical in nature. Combined with the orders you found and the radical Restructurist's new magical power, it became evident that the Rikti sought to breach the mystic barrier to their home world!

The final stage was set when the radical Restructurists overran a section of Oranbega rich in stored magical energy. You rushed to the scene and fought through both Circle of Thorns defenders and Rikti attackers until you were able to stop the Restructurists plans.

With the radical Restructurists' defeat came the first hope of peace since the beginning of the Rikti War. C'Kelkah offered to begin cease-fire talks between the peoples of Earth and the Rikti Traditionalist faction. It's not a full peace, and it may be far off, but it is a chance.

When asked why she had been willing to help fight the Restructurists, C'Kelkah's reasoning was simple. She worried that if the Restructurists could restore contact with the Rikti home Earth, they would likely be given free reign to continue on Earth until they achieved victory. She feared that with that taste of victory, they would not allow their power to be taken away and be merged back under the command of the Lineage of War. That they might not stop with one Earth alone.


Stop the Rikti experiment and the battle on the street Edit

Briefing

There is a major disturbance occurring, character. A large number of Rikti troops have taken control over several city blocks, and are preparing what appears to be a major dimensional experiment or mass transfer. Civil authorities were able to evacuate most civilians, but there are still people trapped in the area. This situation has been further complicated by verified reports of Rikti fighting other Rikti. An emergency of this nature supercedes the necessities of proper chain of command; I am thus taking the initiative and requesting your assistance to stop the Rikti battle on the streets and/or rescue the civilians and/or disrupt the Rikti's experiment. There is little time before this situation will get out of hand. I would estimate that you have approximately 2 hours to stabilize the situation. Need text

While other forces are preparing to counter-attack, it is important to either evacuate the remaining civilians, or to prevent the dimensional experiment the Rikti are performing by incapacitating their machines. You will need to take the light rail over to the site of the battle. It's been contained with an emergency force field, so that should make your job easier.

Mission Objective(s)

A scream rips through the air

  • Stop Rikti street battle (Timed, 2 hours)
    • 6 portal devices to adjust, 4 citizens to save (BUGGED - ONLY NEED TO DESTROY PORTALS TO COMPLETE MISSION)

You were able to accomplish your goals and stopped the Rikti's fight on the streets

Debriefing

Thanks to your swift intervention, civilian casualties were low and we were able to determine that the Rikti were performing some sort of large-scale measurement. We were unable to determine what they were measuring.

I am disturbed that the forces brought to bear in what seems to have been an internecine struggle were powerful enough to challenge you. The Rikti way is one of monolithic harmony. What could cause such a schism among them?

It is well to be working with you. Let us begin without delay.

-Note: you need to disable all the machines or rescue the civilians, but don't have to do both.

Prevent the Rikti from achieving their aims on an alternate Earth Edit

Briefing

Portal Corporation scientists have monitored an unauthorized interdimensional transit from our world to a nearby alternate Earth. Readings match the dimensional jump technology that the Rikti recently stole from Portal Corporation, but show signs of modification that match some of the changes made to the Portal apparatus recovered after your recent battle with the Rikti on the city streets. I have been authorized by my superiors to request your assistance to prevent the Rikti from achieving their aims on an alternate Earth, whatever those aims may be.

I am uncertain of the Rikti aims. The modifications to their portal generation equipments indicate that they may not be attempting a breakthrough to our home Earth, but may be performing some other operation. It is still important to alter their portal generation equipment to ensure that that world is cut off from the Rikti home Earth.

Mission Objective(s)

It looks as though this world has seen more than its share of war

  • Disrupt Rikti portal devices
    • 6 portal devices to adjust

You found the Rikti expedition already badly disrupted

Unknown sabotage
When you examined the Rikti's portal generation devices, you discovered that they had already been sabotaged and disrupted by someone else.


Debriefing

All evidence indicate that the Rikti's portal devices had been tampered with before you even arrived. That, in combination with another outbreak of inter-Rikti violence points to the possibility that the Rikti are undergoing an internal schism. I am going to speak with some of my own sources, Hero. Perhaps I can uncover more.

Meet Nen'Kulf and find out what he has to say Edit

Briefing

I have spoken with a number of contacts I still have among the Lost about the recent Rikti against Rikti battles we have seen. Few are willing to tell me anything, but one, a man who has taken the Rikti name Nen'Kulf, has agreed to talk. Nen'Kulf will not speak to me, fearing I will contaminate his hard-won "Rikti Thought" pattern, but he has agreed to speak with you. I believe that he is genuine. However, he is concerned that members of one of the factions may attempt to prevent the meeting. Despite this danger, I would like to ask you to meet Nen'Kulf and find out what he has to say about the recent Rikti conflicts.

I knew the man who is now Nen'Kulf well. He joined the Lost after he lost everything in the war, and always sought to help his fellows. He has long given me bits of information in the hopes that the war could be ended peacefully and soon. I am suprised that he had not mentioned the division among the Rikti earlier, but if he wishes to talk now, he should be listened to.

Mission Objective(s)

The hum of Rikti energy weapons is the first thing you pick up on. Nen'Kulf mentioned that he was afraid of being followed, but you aren't certain that this isn't a trap.

  • Meet with Nen'Kulf
    • Locate Nen'Kulf

You spoke with Nen'Kulf after rescuing him from other, hostile Rikti. He told you a great deal about the different Rikti factions

Nen'Kulf's information
After his rescue from Rikti of another faction, the Restructurist faction Lost called Nen'Kulf told you:

"Rikti are: Divided. Two Factions: Restructurist, Traditionalist.
Traditionalist are: Fanatic faction. They seek: Iron-clad rule. They seek: Total recreation of Home-Earth Rikti society. They are: Bound in: Old ways. They are: inflexible. Converted Lost are: Second class citizens: For Traditionalists.
Restructurists seek: New ways. Restructurists reform: Blocked by: Traditionalist agenda. Traditionalists seek: Total Rule of: Humans; Rikti, when: Home-Earth contacted.
I provide: Location of: Strongest Traditionalist leader."


Debriefing

Nen'Kulf information is very interesting. The Rikti here on Earth are having difficulty figuring out how to proceed without guidance from the home Earth. It may be possible to take advantage of this. Of the two factions Nen'Kulf outlined, the Traditionalists seem to pose a larger threat. I will filter all of this information through the intelligence network, and check into the location Nen'Kulf provided you.
If the information is verifiable, I may soon need to request your assistance in a sanctioned action against these Traditionalists, Hero.

Defeat and capture the Traditionalist scientist C'Kelkah Edit

Briefing

Intelligence has been able to confirm the information provided by Nen'Kulf about the current location of a major Traditionalist leader. I have further been able to verify this leader's identity as C'Kelkah, a leading scientist with the Rikti invasion forces who is believed to be in charge of their dimensional travel research teams. The strategic nature of her position within the Rikti science hierarchy increases the priority of C'Kelkah's capture. I have thus been authorized to sanction an attempt to defeat and/or capture C'Kelkah, and would like to ask for your assistance in this operation.

C'Kelkah is currently overseeing the setup of a forward base in an old Council facility. This facility was cleared out some time ago by an independent hero action, but a Rikti infiltrator in City Hall managed to hide its location, preventing its demolition. Your mission will be to locate C'Kelkah and her direct subordinates and defeat them.

Interference devices
Though these devices are clearly made with Rikti technology for Rikti use, you can figure out enough to see that they are built to scramble dimensional portal generators, potentially even helping to seal off travel between targeted dimensions. Why the Rikti would want to scramble portals is unknown.


Debriefing

With C'Kelkah's capture, we will likely see a drop in activity from the dangerous Traditionalist Rikti faction. I will continue my investigations with Nen'Kulf and others to observe the impact. What is potentially more important is C'Kelkah's role in Rikti dimensional travel research. Further investigation of the site has uncovered odd evidence that the devices being prepared by C'Kelkah's team were made to disrupt dimensional travel. The reasoning for this is unknown, but may come out during C'Kelkah's interrogation.

Capture Nen'Kulf & his guards Edit

Briefing

Early results from C'Kelkah's interrogation and further examination of the site where you captured her have begun to present some disturbing trends. I have tried to contact Nen'Kulf to see if I could confirm some of this information, but I have learned that following C'Kelkah's capture, Nen'Kulf underwent full Rikti conversion and was promoted to an elite rank within the Rikti Lineage of War.

This makes me extremely suspicious of Nen'Kulf's motivations and the nature of the information he provided to us. I would like to ask you to undertake an operation to capture Nen'Kulf so that I can confirm or allay my suspicions.

I have located the place and time of Nen'Kulf first operation as a fully converted Rikti. Your goal will be to capture him. Stopping the attack in general is good as well, but it is not a criteria for this mission.

Many pieces of this Situation: Non-Congruent

Excuse me.

Many pieces of this situation do not fit together. We must have more information before we can tell whether or not we have made a tactical error. Nen'Kulf's capture is important to determining this.

Mission Objective(s)

With the information you've been given, you are able to arrive just moments after the Rikti appeared

  • Capture Nen'Kulf & his guards
    • 4 Citizens to Rescue

you captured Nen'Kulf, the converted human who had first informed you of the growing schism amongst the Rikti

Debriefing

Thank you for your assistance in this operation. With Nen'Kulf's capture we may be able to get some answers, but his mindset is very Rikti now, and very hostile. Any interrogation will be difficult. In contrast, C'Kelkah has been open and willing to talk. I will tell you more of what has been learned from her soon, once it has been cleared.

Nen'Kulf was a friend of mine, once. He believed strongly in the Rikti ideals of unity and harmony. The changes to him are disturbing, but not completely unexpected. Many who seek to impose peace can become tyrants if they follow their ideals without question.

Recapture C'Kelkah from the Nemesis Army Edit

Briefing

There has been an unforeseen development in the Rikti situation. The Rikti leader you captured, C'Kelkah, has been abducted by a Nemesis task force. Several guards and prisoners were killed in the attack, including one of C'Kelkah's interrogators and Nen'Kulf. It is not believed that they were sppecific targets of the operation. Attempts to track the movements of the Nemesis troops who captured C'Kelkah have failed. However, there have been reports of Rikti attacks on a suspected Nemesis base. It is my belief that they are trying to rescue C'Kelkah. I am using my own authority during this emergency situation and authorizing an action to recapture C'Kelkah from the Nemesis Army forces.

I do not know what purpose Nemesis or the Nemesis Army have for abducting C'Kelkah, but I am certain that we cannot allow her to remain in Nemesis' control. I have given you the coordinates where the battles between the Rikti and Nemesis have been reported. Your goal: Free C'Kelkah.

Excuse me.

Your goal is to locate and liberate C'Kelkah from the Nemesis Army. Continued attacks by Rikti forces are also highly likely.

Mission Objective(s)

Hidden beneath a disused facade, you find nothing less than a base used by the forces of the Prussian Prince of Automatons, Nemesis!

  • Locate C'Kelkah

You searched, but were unable to find the Traditionalist Rikti leader C'Kelkah. Nemesis may have moved her to a new location.

C'Kelkah transferred!
The orders you found on a Nemesis computer refer to a prisoner transfer from this base to another, unspecified base. It looks like Nemesis was ahead of things and already moved the Traditionalist Rikti leader C'Kelkah to a new and more secure location.


Debriefing

C'Kelkah remains in Nemesis control for the moment, but any evaluation of this situation reveals that you are not at fault. I had not anticipated an attack by Nemesis, or from any other villain organization. I have concentrated on the Rikti to the exclusion of much else. I have tried to speak with Agent Maxwell Christopher about Nemesis' possible motivations, but I have not received anything back yet. I will consult with my sources and others to find the next option.

Attack the Rikti base to discover their target point Edit

Briefing

I have been unable to get solid information on locations Nemesis forces may be holding the Traditionalist Rikti leader C'Kelkah. However, I have discovered a location where Traditionalist Rikti forces appear to be preparing a strike against Nemesis Army forces. It is my belief that they are preparing to stage a rescue of C'Kelkah. As the agent on the scene, I am authorizing an attack on the Rikti base to discover their target point. If you can find planning details at this location, you may be able to locate where Nemesis is holding the Traditionalist leader C'Kelkah.

We still have very limited intelligence on this situation. I am hesitant to send you into the field in such a circumstance, but there is no choice. You must look for a clue to C'Kelkah's location at the Rikti staging point. If you find one, proceed immediately to strike against Nemesis and retrieve her from the Nemesis Army.

Mission Objective(s)

Though much of this building remains long abandoned, you can find the floors where the Rikti have set up a temporary rallying point.

  • Find C'Kelkah's location
    • Search For Clues

You found where the Rikti think C'Kelkah is being held by Nemesis. Now you must recapture her from the Nemesis Army.

Rikti rescue plans
You found these precisely drawn diagrams at a Rikti staging area for an attempted rescue for C'Kelkah, a Rikti scientist and one of the leaders of their "Traditionalist" faction. The plans are very easy to follow, drawn with scientific precision and noted in a simplified version of the Rikti language. Almost as if they were written for people not completely familiar with the intricacies of Rikti thought and language.


Mission Objective(s)

Deep beneath the ground, this subterranean lab and base is hidden from any detection. You have to wonder how the Rikti even found this place.

  • Recapture C'Kelkah

You recaptured the traditionalist C'Kelkah from the forces of the Nemesis Army. You also found some coded plans on one of the defeated Nemesis soldiers.

After C'Kelkah was recaptured from the Nemesis Army, she tried to communicate with you. Though much of it was difficult to comprehend, you were able to understand some of what she said:

"My thanks: Yours. Nemesis: Madman. Danger: Rikti, Human.
Name:C'Kelkah

Military Leaders: Seek to: Retain command/control/power/prestige. Build:Society they rule. Hero: Used by: Restructurists."

Icon clue generic
Coded plans
You found this document on one of the Nemesis soldiers you defeated during the recapture of the Rikti Traditionalist faction leader C'Kelkah. The code the plans have been encrypted with makes them completely impenetrable at first glance, but it's likely that it could be broken with enough time and effort.


Debriefing

C'Kelkah is under guard once more. Your actions were highly successful. She is much more communicative after her experience with Nemesis. The picture she has painted of the Rikti Traditionalists and Restructurists is very different from the one promoted by Nen'Kulf. I am uncertain which is more accurate, but there may be more information soon. I have also passed the documents you found along to the appropriate parties. The Nemesis Army regularly monitors other villain organizations, their plans against the Rikti may reveal elements we are currently unaware of. I do not think that this situation is complete at this time.

Attack the suspected Restructurist conversion center Edit

Briefing

The Traditionalist Rikti scientist C'Kelkah has been very communicative since you rescued her from the Nemesis Army. She has begun to tell us more about the growing division between Rikti factions present on Earth. She has been offered to assist against the Restructurists' faction forces. As proof of her good faith, she has provided us with the location of a facility currently dedicated to converting Lost into Rikti. I am not certain I can trust her, but it does seem that she is motivated to assist us. I have asked for and been granted authorization to sanction an attack on the suspected Restrucurist Rikti conversion center to test the validity of C'Kelkah's claim, and would like to offer you the first option on this operation.

Your objectives are two-fold: First, you must secure the facility by defeating the facility's leader, a Restructurist commander called Po'Ken. Secondly, you must search for information about how lost are being funneled into the facility.

After the Nen'Kulf fiasco, I am hesitant to trust my instincts when dealing with other Rikti. However, I think that C'Kelkah may be telling the truth. If the rift between Traditionalists and Restructurists is as large as we are beginning to believe, this battle may be as important to them as the battle with Earth.

Nen'Kulf's journal
You found this handwritten journal along with several others, all written by Lost who were soon to undergo the transformation into full Rikti. This one was witten by none other than Nen'Kulf, the Lost convert who had given you C'Kelkah's location in an attempt to undermine the Traditionalists. There is some detail about how members of the Lost earn their conversion to Rikti, as well as descriptions of the strange changes to body and mind the process entails. The last line of the last entry sticks out to you:

"Regret:Betray Angus. Action:Necessary. Will become:Rikti. Wish that:he could understand. I will be so much more soon."

Icon clue generic
Journal of a Lost
You found this handwritten journal along with several others, all written by Lost who were soon to undergo the transformation into full Rikti. This one details how he was recruited into the Restructurists, and his thoughts on the factions. you find the following passage near the end:

'The Traditionalists want more of us converts because they want to grow their ranks. The soldiers outnumber them by a lot. They'll educate you and find a good job for you, but you'll never be a 'real' Rikti as far as they're concerned. They're a sentimental favorite among a lot of the Rikti I've talked to. They don't have a lot of real power, though, because there aren't that many of them. Maybe one in ten.'

'The Restructurists, though, they have the power. If you do well in battle, they won't care if you were a human before. You can become anything. That's the path for me. I don't care what happens to the world. I want to be on the winning side.'


Debriefing

It appears that C'Kelkah's information was correct. The closure of that facility should slow down the rate at which the Restructurists are converting members of the Lost into new troops. The journals you found are being studied for further clues into Lost recruiting techniques and methods to counter-act the Rikti conversion process. Nen'Kulf's journal may be of particular help.

C'Kelkah has continued to talk with us. I believe that government negotiators may soon have a major intelligence breakthrough.

Pursue and capture a Restructurist Rikti leader named Lu'Bew Edit

Briefing

There has been an interesting development in the Rikti situation. Agent Maxwell has finally given me the decryption of the Nemesis Army plans you recovered during the operation to recapture C'Kelkah. The decrypted plans outlined a second kidnapping attempt, this time of a Restructurist Rikti leader. The plans are now out of date, but C'Kelkah has been able to fill in a great deal of information. C'Kelkah has provided correct information in past, so I have been able to attain authorization to recruit meta-human assests for a mission to pursue and capture a Restructurist Rikti leader named Lu'Bew and his opperation staff.

Your target will be the Restructurist Rikti leader Lu'Bew and his operation staff. According to C'Kelkah, Lu'Bew is one of the major generals within the Restructurist group. He also used to be human.

Nemesis' plan was startlingly audacious. He intended to capture leaders from both sides, convert them into cyborgs under his control, then allow the Rikti to recapture them. Agent Maxwell refused to give me further access to the decrypted plans. I do not think he trusts me.

Mission Objective(s)

Everything has checked out so far. If the information holds out, then Lu'Bew should be here to drill new Rikti troops, and not suspect a surprise attack

  • Capture Lu'Bew & his staff

You defeated Lu'Bew, and saw a Rikti who was using magical powers! You also found intelligence on Lu'Bew after the battle.

Captured plans
Though these seem to be plans detailing a major Rikti operation, they appear to only contain one small section of a much larger agenda. They will need to be decoded and translated, but this could be even more important than Lu'Bew's capture itself.


Debriefing

Lu'Bew's capture is a great achievement, Hero. The plans you captured will be sent for decoding and translation immediately. I will also see that C'Kelkah is questioned about them.

I am greatly disturbed by the implication that the Rikti have begun to utilize magic. This discovery could greatly alter our perceptions of Rikti capabilities and have vast ramifications. I will speak with my superiors about it.

Investigate the Rikti's capture of a Circle of Thorns sorcerer Edit

Briefing

I have spoken with C'Kelkah's questioners. While we have not yet completed the decryption and translation of the plans you found while fighting Lu'Bew, I did ask them to question C'Kelkah about the Rikti Magus you encountered. She informed us that several of their Lost converts displayed some supernatural ability which their scientist atributed to a genetic heritage unknown amongst the Rikti. The Traditionalists had not pursued further research, but according to C'Kelkah, certain radical Restructurist factions may have. She had heard rumors that they had captured a Circle of Thorns sorcerer and had been forcing him to teach them magic. While we are decrypting the plans, it might be advisable to investigate the Rikti's capture of a Circle of Thorns sorcerer.

We knew that many Lost converts viewed the Restructurist faction as a superior choice due to the opportunity for advancement, calculated against the greater risk of being used as cannon-fodder. If some have found a way to do this by pursuing magical knowledge otherwise unattainable to the Rikti, this could radically alter the Rikti power structure. I will speak with occult specialists to attempt to gauge the threat.

Mission Objective(s)

Despite the hum of alien machinery, this section of ancient Oranbega feels empty somehow.

  • Find captive sorcerer

You found a Circle of Thorns mage being held captive by the Rikti, and learned about the Riktis' magical interest from him

Otrant's story
Upon his release from his Rikti captors, the Circle sorcerer told you:

"The Rikti held me captive after assaulting this section of the city. They used their mental powers to keep me locked within this weak body, and interrogated me regularly on magical subjects. I played along at first, trying to understand what they sought and thinking my instructions useless to them. Soon, however, they began to mimic my own magic, and teach it to others of their loathsome kind!
They were also greatly interested in barrier magics. Not the conventional barriers of energy, but more theorethical structures. I know not their aim, but they knew exactly the sort of barrier they wished to find information about.
And that is all you shall gain from me. I have told you this because I think your city and mine may face a mutual peril. You shall get no more. I shall not become some sycophantic research tool like the traitor Akarist!"


Debriefing

Otrant is now in our custody, but he refuses to tell us more about what the Rikti sought from him. What we already know leaves only more questions. The decryption and translation of the plans you captured should be complete soon, perhaps they will supply the missing information.

Additionally, on the advice of MAGI occult experts I have been cross-referencing recent Lost to Rikti converts with a list of families posessing ties to known magical or "Mu" bloodlines. There were several matches, most of them now with the Restructurist factions. This could have a major negative impact on our operations.

Travel to a parallel dimension and disrupt whatever the Rikti are doing Edit

Briefing

Portal Corporation researchers have reported a major disturbance in the interdimensional substrate following the detection of a Rikti interdimensional transit to a parallel Earth. It is unlikely anything they have recorded before. The Rikti expedition to that parallel world matches a similar mission mentioned in the decrypted portions of the orders you captured on the Restructurist leader Lu'Bew. It is my belief that the detected disturbance is part of the Restructurists' larger plan. As such, I am taking the initiative during this potential crisis and requesting that you travel to this parallel dimension and disrupt whatever activity the Rikti are working toward.

Your access has already been cleared. Your primary objective is to ensure that the Rikti are unable to find a path to their home Earth from the alternate world. This can be accomplished either by disrupting their portal generation equipment, or by defeating all Rikti at the transit site.

This is pure speculation on my part, but I suspect that one or more Rikti Magus will be at the transfer site as well. I think I understand how this is beginning to fit together.

Mission Objective(s)

You hear the feeble hum of the aliens' technology

  • Disrupt Rikti portal devices
    • 6 portal devices to adjust

You have prevented the Rikti from reaching their home world.

The barrier's true nature
You found this data on portal devices being used as part of a ceremony conducted by Rikti Magi. These modified versions of the portal devices the Rikti had stolen from Portal Corporation were made not to attempt to open a gateway between worlds, but to analyze a barrier that cuts a world off in a very unique way. The conclusion of the analysis is that there is no normal energy or physical barrier surrounding the Rikti's home Earth, but that there is a strange force separating that world from the rest of the multiverse. A force unquantificable by even Rikti science. A force that might be called magic.


Debriefing

As readings from the Rikti expedition indicate and I had suspected, the Rikti believe that the barrier sealing off their homeworld is magical in nature. The Omega Team that shut down the Rikti/Earth portal was comprised mostly of mystically gifted heroes. None of the ones who traveled to Rikti Earth returned, but the portal was destroyed, and Rikti Earth sealed off. If the barrier around the Rikti homeworld is of a magical origin, it would explain why it has not been breached from either side.

The decrypted plans you captured on the Restructurist leader Lu'Bew were shown to the Traditionalist leader C'Kelkah. Her reaction was characterized as "extreme". Coupled with our knowledge that the Rikti now possess mages from transformed Lost with Mu blood, the final phase of this operation becomes apparent. I will have more information for you shortly. This will be over soon.

Disrupt the Rikti Restructurists' plan and prevent a second Rikti Invasion Edit

Briefing

The Rikti have staged a major attack, securing a section of Oranbega rich in stores of magical energy. I believe, and C'Kelkah's concurs, that they are going to utilize their magi and knowledge about magical barriers to focus that energy and use it to destroy the barrier around the Rikti home Earth, beginning a second Rikti Invasion. This cannot be allowed to happen. Conventional forces are being gathered, but they may be too late and insufficient to the task. I therefore must ask you to disrupt the Rikti Restructurists' plan and prevent a second Rikti Invasion.

I have consulted with all the occult and technological experts available. There should be two ways to prevent the destruction of the barrier. First,simply defeat all the Rikti in the target area. Secondly, disrupt the Rikti dimensional devices and the Circle's enemy storage shrines and altars. Neither will likely be easy. Both Rikti and Circle forces are certain to regard you as a threat. You must not fail. I have absolute faith in your abilities.

Mission Objective(s)

This is where the road ends. You must stop the Rikti in this last desperate battle or face a second invasion of the Earth. Already you can hear the sounds of battles being fought ahead in the darkness.

  • Prevent a second Rikti Invasion
    • 4 mystic nodes to destroy, 6 devices to destroy

You have stopped the Rikti from breaking the magical barrier sealing off their world and prevented a second Rikti Invasion.

The threat has passed for now, thanks to your efforts. The Restructurists are in chaos, but are already beginning a new wave of attacks. The greatest development, however, is with the Rikti Traditionalists. They have begun talks with the government for a cease-fire between Rikti of the Traditionalist faction and the peoples of Earth. It is not a peace, and will have no bearing on the actions of the larger Restructurist faction, but it is a step towards a peace and an end to the war. All of which is possible only due to your bravery and heroism. I thank you, Hero.
I thank you.

I asked C'Kelkah why she was helping us. Her reasoning was simple. She worried that if the Restructurists could restore contact with the Rikti home Earth, they would likely be given free reign to continue on Earth until they achieve victory. She feared that with that taste of victory, they would not allow their power to be taken away and be merged back under the command of the Lineage of War. Then, they might not stop with one Earth alone. My superiors may not trust the Traditionalists much, which is understandable. But I think I can trust that motivation.

Missions Edit

Stop the Rikti from securing Portal technology Edit

Briefing

Let's get straight to work, Hero. The Rikti are striking a Portal Corporation research lab. It's a small lab, where they try out all the new technology; it's even a secret to most of Portal Corporation's staff. You must stop the Rikti from securing that portal technology. Before I escaped the Rikti, I was able to learn a good deal about upcoming operations. The Rikti have been working toward a dangerous new goal. Ever since contact with the Rikti homeworld was cut off, the Rikti trapped on Earth have been desperate to establish contact with the homeworld again. I believe that they are getting very close to starting their own dimensional travel program. Their goal will be to find alternate routes back to our homeworld. If they succeed, they could start a new invasion.

The Rikti will be looking to accomplish several main goals: kidnap key Portal Corporation researchers, copy Portal Corporation files about near dimensions, and acquire Portal Corporation portal generation technology. You can either defeat all Rikti operatives, or prevent them from accomplish these goals.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Secure Portal Corp from Rikti
    • 3 researchers to rescue, 2 computers to shut down

Debriefing

Your overall success was quite impressive. The Rikti did manage to get away with important Portal technology, but without the databases and captives, they will not be able to use it effectively. However, they may still have enough information to begin opening portals of their own. I hope that I will be able to count on your continued assistance in preventing an interdimensional Rikti breakout.

I am especially glad that you were able to prevent the abduction of the researchers. The Rikti would no doubt have used an alteration process on them to ensure their cooperation. The Rikti's transformation process can be extremely traumatic, even to a prepared mind, and retaining human thought patterns is difficult. On their behalf, I'd like to extend my personal thanks.

Catch a hostile infiltrator in the Rikti before he can return to the Council Edit

Briefing

When I was sent to infiltrate the Lost, I was briefed about the possible presence of other infiltrators. One of my secondary objectives was to determine if there were other non-sanctioned infiltrators, and if those operatives were from organizations hostile to the government. I identified several possible operatives, but was only able to confirm one, a Council agent I knew as "Sigmund". However, I was never able to act against him without losing my own cover. Now that my mission is over, an opportunity has presented itself to clear up the situation and act against the infiltrator I discovered. I have been authorized to request your assistance to catch a hostile infiltrator in the Rikti before he can return to the Council.

The Council operative may be difficult to locate, but it is imperative that he is caught before he can return to the Council's ranks. I have been given his last known location among the Rikti. Hopefully you will be able to catch him before the Council recovery teams can extract him.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Find the infiltrator

Before its destruction and disassembly by the Rikti, this Council robot had been part of a raid meant to extract Sigmund, the Council infiltrator inside the Lost.

Debriefing

It is fortunate that you were able to apprehend Sigmund. He had undergone full Rikti metamorphosis, but had retained his loyalty to the Council. The level of access he had to Rikti information combined with his allegiance could have proves catastrophic.

It is strange, but I am almost envious of him. My own counter-measures were nearly overcome, and I had to escape. The single-minded determination he would have needed to overcome the Rikti alteration astounds me.

Capture the portal research facility and retrieve any Rikti portal research Edit

Briefing

Attempts to track Rikti use of stolen Portal Corporation technology have met with limited success up to now, but there has been a possible breakthrough. Monitoring has located what may be a temporary Rikti facility for portal research. I have been authorized to ask for your assistance to capture the portal research facility and retrieve any Rikti portal research.

Your goal will be to defeat the Rikti's head researcher, who we believe is called Tilektu, and his assistants. You must also recover the results of any research conducted by the Rikti.

We are currently able to trace Rikti transits and stop them because they are using Portal Corporation technology. If they were to discover a means of disguising their transit or re-building their own transit network, it could present a serious danger to the Earth.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat Tilektu and assistants
    • Unknown

Debriefing

From the report you found and the data gathered at the scene, it appears that this research was a greater threat than anticipated. The research being conducted was concentrating on determining the reason why our home Earth...

That is, why the Rikti home Earth had been cut off from contact with our dimension.

This report is very interesting. I retain some knowledge of Rikti writing, but the finer points of this are difficult. They would likely be difficult even with a full knowledge of Rikti written communication modes. The report is mainly written in Primary, the Rikti technical language, but the author is using words and Thought: Modes from other languages to describe the barrier. There are sections in Archival, the language used for historical records, and in Mortal, the language used by the Lineage of War. It's as if they were trying to describe the interdimensional barrier as a magical effect. Fascinating.

Save a number of Lost from full conversion to Rikti Edit

Briefing

I would like to request your discreet assistance in a difficult matter. If you are not interested, I will not hold against you, as this action has not been sanctioned by my superiors and is therefore not condoned by the government at this time. The operation is not illegal, but I have discovered the situation through unconventional means that would be frowned on by the chain of command. Knowing this, if you are still willing to assist me it could save a number of Lost from full conversion to Rikti. There is not much time, the Rikti will know your intention. You will have 90 minutes or less.

I still have occasional contact with members of the Lost cell I infiltrated. It's not usually purposeful, but a matter of psionic leak-through to their portion of the Rikti mind-web. There are several of them who are being prepared to for the final conversion into full Rikti, but they know that they will be assigned to the Lineage of War to be used as front-line troops. They retain enough human loyalty that they do not wish to be used as disposable soldiers in this manner. During contact I was able to discern their location. All that remains now is their rescue.

Thank you, Hero. Succeed or fail, I appreciate your effort.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Free reluctant Lost
    • X Lost to find (Timed, 90 minutes)

You did very well, Hero, and have my continued thanks. I went outside my own authority and ensured sufficient media coverage of your actions to insure that the Lost you rescued will receive proper medical and social attention instead of being consigned to government or scientific study.

I can feel their thoughts at the edge of my perception. They are scared, but much happier. They think highly of your courage and compassion, as do I.

I also appreciate your discretion in this matter.

Stop the Rikti transdimensional expedition and contain the Devouring Earth Edit

Briefing

The Rikti have been detected accessing a quarantined dimension, one where the Devouring Earth successfully hijacked the world's ecosystem and eradicated all human life. It is assumed that the Rikti are trying to find an alternate path to their home dimension, but that they are unaware of the extreme hazard this dimension represents. As I am certain you're aware, allowing the Rikti to find a path to their dimension of origin would be disastrous. There is an additional danger of alerting the natives of the dimension in question to the existence of our world. I have been authorized to ask for your assistance to stop the Rikti transdimensional expedition and contain the Devouring Earth on their own world.

While it is unlikely that the Rikti knowingly entered an hostile dimension, it is possible that they have already encountered difficulty. This will not change the objective of your task. Your main objective will be to disrupt the portal generation apparatus the Rikti have utilized to access this world. That will cut off Rikti access to that dimension, or at least disrupt any possible corridors from there to the Rikti homeworld. If those devices have been hidden too well, you can also concentrate on hunting down all Rikti operatives present at their transfer site on that world, as well as any hostile local residents they have come in contact with.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Disrupt Rikti portal devices
    • Unknown

The Rikti will not be able to continue their search from that world, and the adjustments you made should prevent further interaction between that world and ours. Though it is unlikely that the Rikti would return to such a hostile location, the full capabilities of that world's Devouring Earth population are unknown.

The Devouring Earth overran that world at approximately the same time as the Rikti Invasion occurred in our world. These events were not linked, but the proximity of their occurrence prevented us from offering any aid.

Stop the Rikti transdimensional expedition before the alternate Circle discovers our Earth Edit

Briefing

Portal Corporation scientists have traced a Rikti portal transition to a nearby alternate Earth. This particular case could be extremely dangerous. The world has been classified as a prohibited dimension. Our probe teams discovered that the Circle of Thorns analog of that dimension successfully annihilated all human life on the world except a slave sub-class in the year 1968 AD. I have been authorized by ask for your assistance to stop the Rikti transdimensional expedition before the alternate Circle discovers our Earth.

I will warn you, this world has been classified as extremely hazardous. If you accept, I recommend that you take appropriate precautions.

It is unlikely that the Rikti knew about conditions on this world when they opened a portal to it. This does not change the imperative that the world must be sealed off from ours at this time. Your main objective will be to disrupt the portal generation apparatus the Rikti have utilized to access this world. That will cut off Rikti access to that dimension, or at least disrupt any possible corridors from there to the Rikti home Earth. If those devices have been hidden too well, you can also concentrate on hunting down all Rikti operatives present at their transfer site on that world, as well as any hostile local residents they have come in contact with.

Mission Objective(s)

From the markings on the tombstones, it seems clear that life is cheap in the Circle's reality.

  • Disrupt Rikti portal devices
    • 6 portal devices to adjust

Baphomet

Note: You do not need to defeat Baphomet to complete this mission. However, defeating Baphomet will award you the Demon Slayer Badge.

Debriefing

The Rikti expedition has been disrupted, and we have sealed that world from ours for the time being. Several refugees made it back through the portal before you closed it. They are receiving care and aid.

There are many worlds that turned out worse than ours. It is hoped that after our world has had a chance to rebuild further we'll be able to provide aid and assistance to such worlds, but for now we must work to preserve our safety. It is sad to seal them off, but often necessary.

Remove the Rikti threat from an alternate Earth Edit

Briefing

A portal research team recently reported contact with Rikti on an alternate world they've been trying to regain contact with. The energy cost to cross over to that particular world is low, making it nearby, dimensionally speaking. The legal representatives of that world have requested our aid in preventing the Rikti from entering their world. I have been authorized to pass that request on to you, and formally ask that you remove the Rikti threat from this alternate world.

I'm glad that you have accepted this mission. Your objective: Portal disruption. Alternate: Rikti capture/defeat

I'm sorry.

I mean, your main objective will be to disrupt the portal generation apparatus the Rikti have utilized to access this world. That will cut off Rikti access to that dimension, or at least disrupt any possible corridors from that world to the Rikti homeworld. If those devices have been hidden too well, you can also concentrate on hunting down all Rikti operatives present.

You would hate to see the quiet streets of this world afire with the discharge from Rikti plasma cannons.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Disrupt Rikti portals
    • 6 portal devices to adjust

Enemies

Debriefing

You have once more performed an excellent operation. Friendly diplomatic relations will likely resume with that alternate world. The Rikti will no doubt continue to probe alternate Earths, looking for a way home or for more resources or allies to continue the war.

Stop the Rikti expedition and discover the identity of the second expedition Edit

Briefing

Portal Corporation scientists have detected two transits to an alternate dimension. The first matches the signature of the portal technology the Rikti stole from Portal Corporation. The second is based on a different technology and would not have been detected had the scientists not been monitoring. Both originated from this world, however. I have been authorized to ask you to stop the Rikti transdimensional expedition and discover the identity of the other expedition we detected.

The world you will be traveling to is relatively uncharted. Dimensional probes have revealed that it is not a hostile environment. Your goal will be to disrupt the Rikti portals on site to ensure that that world is cut off from the Rikti homeworld, and to find out the identity of the second group to transit over to that world.

This forest is relatively unspoiled. You aim to see that it remains that way.

Mission Objective(s)

    • 6 portal devices to adjust

You performed excellently and have disrupted the Rikti expedition, even under these difficult circumstances.

I had not been briefed about the Nemesis Army's interdimensional capability. I must apologize to you for not being able to supply you with that information. I have had a discussion with the agent in charge of Nemesis operations. He informed me that I had not been cleared for that level of access due to uncertainties concerning my time with the Lost. I am sorry if you were unduly endangered because of this.

Defeat War Chief Kt'Mezzu Edit

Briefing

I have been contacted by one of my past associates who remains with the Rikti. War Chief Kt'Mezzu, a noted Rikti commander of the Lineage of War, will be in the city. Defeating or capturing this War Chief could be a major blow. However, I am concerned that this information came to me duplicitously, and this is a trap meant to discredit my loyalties to Earth and punish you for your interference. The possibility that this is a false scenario does not diminish the potential reward if you can defeat War Chief Kt'Mezzu

Even if the scenario is accurate, War Chief Kt'Mezzu will be well protected by his personal guard. Your objective will be to locate and neutralize Kt'Mezzu and his staff.


You ready yourself, not knowing what to expect. The Rikti are capable of anything.

From your report, it seems that the information I had received was correct, and there was a betrayal. We were not the ones betrayed, but War Chief Kt'Mezzu. Even among the Lost there was much talk about the growing factionalization among the Rikti on Earth. I don't like to be used, even if it's to fight the Rikti. You've done well, Hero.

I saw Kt'Mezzu once during my tenure among the Lost. He was a consummate soldier, and treated even the Lost and former Lost under his command well. It is unfortunate that he elected to self-terminate. I would have liked to talk to him again.

Stop the Rikti transdimensional expedition Edit

Briefing

An interdimensional portal transit has been detected originating from our world. A second transit to the same dimension was detected, allowing a Portal Corporation search team to trace the transit, and identify a Rikti expedition on the target world. I have been authorized to ask for your assistance to stop the Rikti transdimensional expedition and/or cut off that world from the Rikti homeworld by modifying their portal generation gear.

The Rikti cannot be allowed to use this world as a relay point to their home Earth, or as a base of operations for further research. Your main objective will be to disrupt the portal generation apparatus the Rikti have utilized to access this world. That will cut off Rikti access to that dimension, or at least disrupt any possible corridors from there to the Rikti homeworld. If those devices have been hidden too well, you can also concentrate on hunting down all Rikti operatives present at their transfer site on that world.

Rikti plasma weapons have set the trees afire.

Debriefing

Your report concerning Rikti against Rikti violence has been passed on to my superiors. My analysis would be that the two Rikti factions fell to violence with such a low number of minds in isolation. Things can become cloudy when we are away from the web of minds. Wise decisions can be difficult.

I would like to extent my personal thanks as well. The Rikti cannot be permitted to expand or to recontact their home Earth under any circumstances. Your tenacity in preventing this has been well noted in my own reports.

Capture a communication from a Rikti soldier in the field Edit

(IMPORTANT: Be warned that this mission will force you to fight in the Rikti Crash Site, which isn't a zone where everyone can solo, and it's 50 Rikti, no less. Mission briefing does NOT mention this, and you will learn it only after accepting the mission... too late, that is.)

Briefing

I have recently discovered that the Rikti have begun to fear that someone is listening in on their mental network. I cannot verify if this is true, but I have not been made aware of any such breakthrough at this time. To counteract this potential threat, the Rikti commanders have started issuing false commands and issuing code written orders to confirm which commands are true. The Rikti are unused to intricate battlefield deceptions, however, and this could be used to our advantage. If you could capture one of these communications from a Rikti soldier in the field, it could help in counter-intelligence programs against them.

You must concentrate your search in the Rikti Crash Site. It is believed that the Rikti have started implementing this system in that zone only. The Rikti may have left themselves vulnerable by trying to protect themselves. If our experts can get enough samples of the Rikti orders, it could allow them to break the Rikti codes.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Search for Rikti in Crash Site
    • Defeat 50 Rikti


Icon clue generic
Written Rikti orders
You found this sheet of clear plastic with alien writing on it after a battle with some Rikti troops. It's most likely a set of orders for their soldiers.


Debriefing

Thank you for delivering this communication. It appears to be in a new code, but as more samples are gathered, decryption should become possible. What may be even more important is that the Rikti believe that their mental communication network has become compromised. This would entail not only an agency with operatives who could listen in, but who could also understand Rikti communication and break the secure command languages. That is beyond the ability any agency I am aware of.

Harass and destroy Rikti forces at every opportunity Edit

Briefing

Though the Rikti Invasion is over, the battle against the Rikti forces on Earth continues. While stopping the long-terms plans of the Rikti is vital, it is also important to harass and destroy Rikti forces at every opportunity. I have been asked to request your continued assistance in the battle with Rikti forces due to your past successes.

Mission Acceptance

You may exercise your sanction against any Rikti targets at any opportunity. The continued pressure from a hero of your stature should be more than sufficient, regardless of its time and place.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Same as Mission Acceptance

Mission Objective(s)

  • Harass Rikti forces
    • Defeat 50 Rikti

You've done enough damage to the Rikti for the time being.

Debriefing

My superiors would like to extend their thanks. The menace the Rikti still pose to the safety and security of humanity cannot be overstated, and it would not be possible to combat them effectively without the support of the meta-human community.

Battle the Rikti in the War Zone Edit

Briefing

The Rikti forces remaining on Earth have been rallying themselves around their crashed vessel. Our forces are trying to keep the situation contained, with the help of Vanguard, but until new weapons are available, it is uncertain that appropriate force can be brought to bear through military means. Thus, the government has authorized me to request you to battle the Rikti in the Rikti War Zone.

Mission Acceptance

The crashed vessel in this area and the surrounding territory is a strong point of the remaining Rikti forces. Breaking their hold in this area will help to end their continued aggression. It is a long term goal, but a vitally important one.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Same as Mission Acceptance

Mission Objective(s)

  • Battle the Rikti in the War Zone
    • Defeat 50 Rikti

You have defeated enough Rikti to help the human forces in the area.

Debriefing

The Rikti conflict won't end for some time, but each defeat they suffer, each soldier we capture or incapacitate is another step towards victory. Many people have sacrificed greatly to stop the Rikti threat, and I am glad to see that you take that threat seriously.
