"We shouldn't be using it. Thing shouldn't be walking around at all. God, I hate being near it."
"Shut up. He can hear us. He's looking right at you, for fuck's sake."
"It can register sound, yeah, but trust me, it doesn't care. It's dead. It doesn't have feelings to hurt, man."
"He's going to kill us."
"It doesn't care. It doesn't get ideas of its own. It's basically retarded. A zombie. It just sits there until we point it at something and say kill."
"Why the Hell does he listen to music, then, if he doesn't understand things? Things like every word of this conversation -"
"Relax, rookie. Don't ask me about the music. Just a quirk. Thing won't hurt us. Just wish I could put it in the ground where it belongs."
Subject is a prototype "RE_ANIMUS" currently operating under executive direction from the BOARD. The Subject's existence is classified, as its existence technically violates the Deterrence maxim regarding (reanimation). The Subject was previously an elite special agent employed by Deterrence who underwent extensive trauma during a field operation gone wrong. Autopsy report suggests the Subject was tortured over an extended period of time; the left arm from the elbow down was completely amputated, and the right eye had been mutilated severely. The Subject died during retrieval, an explosion destroying most of their internals and fully burning away their skin.
Reconstruction on the Subject commenced immediately at the direction of the BOARD. Approximately 45% of the Subject's body was salvaged; the rest was replaced in reconstruction. Medics were able to save the brain, preserving higher reflex functions such as muscle memory and training, though the Subject's personal identity was unable to be recovered. All records pertaining to their previous employment were subsequently DELETED.
A breakthrough in military engineering, the Subject was found to no longer possess any significant indicator of individual identity found in either HIGHER or LOWER frequency bands, making them ideal for dispatch against PSY-types as well as LOWER-FREQUENCY EXONORMALS.
