8 March 2015 Turns out that Dr. Vahlen isn't the only mad scientist we've got, there's also Dr. Shen, head of engineering. Whilst Vahlen's team is responsible for dreaming up the crazy weapons they assure me we'll eventually be able to suit up our troops with, it's Shen's team that is responsible for actually mass producing them for our use. At the moment, Shen doesn't have too much to do, given that Vahlen's still focusing on her initial research. That said, he said he can start production on satellites for...$100 per unit...? What the hell is that satellite made of?? Papier-mâché. We get one of the interns to do it over the afternoon. Well, our head of engineering, guys. Oh, by the way, we've got a whole bunch of new volunteers! Never knew people were that keen on blocking lasers with their faces, but hey, I'm not complaining! Logan Dee Apparently Logan here is a fellow zombie survivor. That said, she doesn't seem to have been all that affected by the ordeal, focusing more of her ire on, "...that fucking plant..." Fade Accompli I have some worries that Fade's fluorescent hair will be bright enough to attract alien fire, but hey, so long as she can shoot them first, all will be well. Denam Pavel Like the two Franchies, Pavel here is insane. Unlike those two, this guy claims to be from some place called Valeria, which doesn't even exist! Also, apparently he initially planned on fighting aliens with a sword. Not a great start. Reginald Wellington GLORIOUS MUSTACHE. Oh, and this is Central Officer Bradford; His job is to tell me whenever we're under attack. Which means I'm going to hate seeing his face more than I already do. Hey! Speaking of which, we're under three simultaneous attacks right now! Unfortunately, XCOM is so poorly funded that we can only respond to one of these attacks, so pick wisely, guys.
