Harrison Blake is on the bridge outside of Kingsmouth overlooking the Solomon Islands. A member of the Orochi Group, he appears to be the supervisor of the team originally tasked with observe and document after The Polaris ran aground. The team was told not to interfere with the situation or to assist the townspeople in any way.

He does not introduce himself before informing you that he has been convinced by Ms. Radcliffe to circumvent the non-intervention policy by using outside resources.

Dialogue

Converse Yourself

You shouldn't confuse a team leader with a team player. I would have preferred to oversee this operation remotely. On time, under budget and with minimum deployment of heavy weapons. However, I had Ann- Ms Radcliffe to consider. A promising graduate, but easily distracted by human elements. My intention was to keep her focused on our corporation's core values. I haven't been entirely successful. Her rural upbringing leads to every community in peril tugging at her heartstrings. In our line of work, I find the best practice is to refer to small towns by case number. Yes, she have me the same look. You really haven't been doing this long, have you? I doubt we'll meet again. But in the event we do, let me know how... saving the world has turned out for you.

Converse Solomon Island

I might have known your kind would show up sooner rather than later. The etheric wave activity on this island has been spiking off the charts. Oh, don't go all cow-eyed on me. You and I both know you're something of an occult hot potato. All that volatile energy buzzing around inside your skull. Isn't that why your quote unquote secret society snapped you up? Soldiers are seldom selected for their winning diplomatic skills. It's all enough to make Ms Radcliffe chew her nails. And neither of us wants that. Uneven nails are symptomatic of disorder. But I digress. In the big picture, our organizations are working to the same game plan. Just from different angles. We choose to deal in hard, quantifiable science, and you... you're the liberal arts.

Converse The Secret World

To be candid, I envy your lack of accountability to the real world. Can you even begin to imagine detailing an event like this to the Joint Chiefs of Staff? I say "detailing," I mean "obfuscating." The government knows, of course, as much as they need to know. It's unavoidable when members of the so-called secret world decide to contact Dimension B in a Northridge mall, for instance. That was one hell of a spring. Life is just full of inconvenient surprises. And I'm not big on surprises. It's what attracted me to this line of work: the chance to normalize the curve. No offense. There'll always be a place for statistical outliers like yourself. The average American doesn't need to see the whole carnival, but they've always loved the sideshow.

Converse The Orochi Group

I couldn't comment on rumor or speculation over the Group's activities. One, Ms Radcliffe and I only represent a subsidiary. Two, I have undergone...considerable media training. What I can discuss is that there's no side agenda, no conspiracy. That sort of sensationalism is more your controllers' style. Our deployment was standard operating procedure in event of an occult emergency. Ideally, we could have isolated and contained without anyone registering that we were here. Provided that they overlooked the primary blockades, the corporate security detail... the air support. Not my call, for the record. The priority is now for us to work together, but separately, towards a satisfactory conclusion for all parties. Finger-pointing will get us nowhere at this advanced stage of contagion.

Trivia

  • There are several references to the character Tuvok from the Star Trek: Voyager television series:
    • Blake follows protocols and is not easily distracted by emotions much like Vulcans do.
    • Blake is concerned with other people's well-being (Ann Radcliffe for example), but doesn't show this. Instead he bends some directives to make it look like he is just following procedure. The same way Tuvok explains his seemingly emotional choices with pure logic.
    • In some idle dialogues Ann Radcliffe tries to make him show his emotional side by dragging him into talk about personal matters. This also is present on the television series with interactions between Tuvok and other characters.
