SUBJECT: The Research of Tyler Freeborn
 
Tyler Freeborn was never able to integrate into the Wabanaki community. He never became a popular New York environmentalist either. He was neither. A lapsed member of his tribe. An imperfect hipster. He belonged nowhere.

And so he found solace in truth.

Tyler Freeborn was much more than a blogger and conspiracy theorist. He was a catalyst. It required someone exactly like him - a local outsider looking in - to uncover the source of the fog. To uncover its true consequences.

Tyler means nothing if no one follows him. Follow him to the end.

SUBJECT: The Research of Tyler Freeborn
 
The official word on Tyler Freeborn – and any research he may have inspired – is that it’s all wild theories and speculation. That’s the official word.

The unofficial word is need-to-know. I.e. I need to know.

I give Orochi credit for being so balls-out in their Filth-research, but it seems pretty incomplete. I need facts. I need results. I need Tyler Freeborn.

SUBJECT: The Research of Tyler Freeborn
 
Time to reassess what we know about the infection on Solomon Island. We have a black substance that causes various kinds of mutation. Let’s call it Filth.

The Filth is a liquid-like terror leaking up from the ground. It comes into contact with living entities and does horrible things to them – primarily of a violent, twisted, tentacular, and/or dream-like nature.

The going theory – a hopeful one – is that limiting physical contact will likewise limit exposure. Orochi research seems far less hopeful: it postulates a distinct second strain, a product of the mist, which is airborne.

If this is the case, it may mean that everyone on Solomon Island is already infected.

Dialogue

Introduction

Whispering into the camera's microphone:

Tyler Freeborn: Are you seeing this? I've been observing them for days now. They're... They're fascinating!
Tyler Freeborn: I mean, I always knew they were real. All the stories, the pictures, the research. The legends and lore.
Tyler Freeborn: My grandfather's stories. All of it real. I never had any doubts about it.
Tyler Freeborn: But to see one of them in the wild... To film it!
Tyler Freeborn: That's something else. It's what I've worked for, what I've sacrificed everything for.
Tyler Freeborn: This is literally the greatest thing that's ever happened to me.
Tyler Freeborn: Of course, the rest of it is not so great. But...still.
Tyler Freeborn: I need to follow it, see where it hides, where it lives.
Tyler Freeborn: Where it came from.
Tyler Freeborn: I'll need to switch this off, but I'll document my findings somehow.

Clues

Orochi Field Operations Computer, Open Cases      
1) Private Cash      

We got the private "transferred" from the military. Officially they need to make a stink about it, but he's one of ours now. Tests confirm that Cash is in peak physical condition and that his blood type conforms to the project needs. Commence subject three testing immediately and keep this file open until finished.

2) Tyler Freeborn      

The Freeborn kid is right, there is a distinct difference between mutations caused by the Mist and the mutations caused by the Filth. Are we dealing with a collision between two separate occult entities here? One which was buried on the island all along, and something else which came from the sea? Two distinct entities, two distinct lines of mutation.

Freeborn has dropped off the map and we've not been able to track his movements anymore. We have decrypted the video that the military recovered for us and we have sent a second team to recover any further recordings from the Freeborn residence. Your mission is to recover Filth samples from the "local" wildlife. There are a pack roaming the area to the north.

3) Subject Three      

Subject Three is live and ready for final testing. We've been cross-infecting strains with various bloodtypes and the current combination is 83% likely to lure the guardian hound species. Once we have one contained, we expect significant strides in Project Filth. The focus now is on ensuring we can subdue the hound once it comes for the bait.
