Choice Text and Results

Talk about church

He looks up, his smile wavering for a second in worry. "Ah, yes, this church is really great. It's really… tranquil. I'm glad there's a sanctuary like this."

His voice gets a little deeper and less polished. "It's a crazy world out there. Nice to slow down sometimes."

Ask about work

He looks up, says "on break," then looks back down at his phone.

Or, in Office Worker Outfit:

"Oh, you started coming here on break too? This place is the fucking best."

He gestures expansively. "You can sit down, enjoy the silence, have a bite to eat. They let in homeless people too, but they don't panhandle in here."

He nudges you with an elbow. "Just don't tell too many people, eh?"

Or, in Priest Outfit:

He looks up, one corner of his mouth twitching down from a practiced smile. "You really want to talk about it?"

"It's…" he sighs deeply. "There's been a big project lately, huge deal selling drones over in Eurasia. Everybody knows they're weapons, but…"

"Even the regulators know they're weapons, but they're letting them through and we're selling them."

He trails off as though unable to know more about what to say.

(Unlocks "Mention Eurasia" choice)

Mention Eurasia

He looks you up and down. "No idea what you're talking about."

Then smiles, not entirely kindly, and returns to looking at his comm.

Or, in Office Worker Outfit:

He smiles in recognition. "Oh! You're on the Eurasia contract too?"

"Heh, I suppose just about everybody's on the damned thing. Sorry I didn't recognize you."

"Yeah, we're just waiting on Wojcik to sign off on our part of the contract. They're supposed to come to the tower, but security keeps fucking it up. You'd think it wouldn't be so damned hard."

Or, in Priest Outfit:

He sighs. "Yeah, uh, forget what I said about that. I just needed someone to talk to… thanks for listening."

Take him out

He smiles, at first, perhaps mistaking your attack for a prank or joke. But he grows serious quickly enough, trying to put distance between you and him.

(Fight Midgard Manager, alerts guards even if you don't attack)

Leave him be

Yeah, he seems pretty absorbed with his comm. No reason to bother him.

(Walk Away)
