The last days in Dodixie have been a nice distraction. Quafe, Boosters without end, cheap lovers, you had your fun. But nothing last forever, as you realize in the moment the intercom beeps and the distorted face of a blonde woman stares into your room.
"Bwahaha!", the voice of Abraham Grunt thunders out of the speakers. "It's me, Starhopper! Missed me?"
Yeah, sure. Totally missed ya.
The female face is wiped from the screen as Abraham Grunt removes the printout he held in front of the camera. His bloated and unshaved face sneers at you know, revealing some brown, rotting teeth.
"Want to meet the girl? She is looking forward to meeting you.", he asks. "Oh well, not really though, she has no clue that you exist... yet."
"That's Sister Alitura, one of the Sisters of EVE, and a little angel whispered in my ear that she is looking for a willing, but nevertheless expendable capsuleer for a job of hers. And guess of whom I thought instantly."
Sigh. The Sisters of EVE are some kind of humanitarian organization, right? Nurses and nuns, helping those in need?
"Ha!", Grunt shouts and laughs at the same time. "That's what they want the public to think, yes. And that's what they do in public, too. But behind the curtain, those angels show their devilish side as well. Especially Sister Alitura, who thinks that she is a revolutionary. More even, she considers the Sister being worthy enemies of the Gods! Ha! I wonder what BOB thinks about that! Here, look at this, and hear Alitura herself, but don't tell anyone I showed you. Confidential internal stuff, at least it should be."
Grunt has a broad grin in his face. "Yes, that's my Alitura. A saint in public, but a bitch in politics. And it seems she needs someone to do some dirty work for her, now that New Eden is in turmoil because of Yulai and the Gallente, Minmatar, Caldari and Slavers are on each others throat."
Okay, what shall I do?
"Fly to the Sisters of EVE Bureau in the Arnon system, somewhere in the Essence region. It's not too far, just around the corner. More or less. Find Sister Alitura, talk to her and accept any job she offers you. Understood?"
You nod reluctantly.
"Don't screw this up, Starhopper.", he warns you. "I owe a shitload of ISK to them Sisters and I hope your work will cover these debts. Just make sure your job won't be hunting me down, and I'll continue liking you only if Sister Alitura likes you too!"
