RE: The Ballad of Adler Young, Canto 2.5
Adler, remove your maiden disguise.
Gertrude, realize with some shock that Adler is not actually a woman. Then recognize him immediately. Have a message for him from another operative that's too sensitive to be passed by an ixie.
Also recognize Alice and Mara as "The Duchess's people" that you've always dealt with. Confess that you've never actually even met the Duchess herself.

Alice, take a look at Jack. Discover that his "name" module is incorrectly inserted and only registers the word "George". Also, that his volume slider is stuck on high. Offer to upgrade him using some of your own logic modules, which are only used when a scuti pilot is not present anyway, so their absence shouldn't affect you.
Jack, be equipped with a backup magic capacitor in order to be able to function in the low world for a while. Alice, admit to being recently upgraded with one as well.

Thomson, report your status back to the capitol. Receive a reply that indicates that she wasn't expected to even last this long.

Adler, try questioning Burnside about her behaviour. Also find interesting that she knew about Jack's discombobulator array.

Burnside, be revealed to have once been bitten by a small piranha in an enchanted stream and was thus cursed to become a were-piranha whenever bathing under the light of the moon, and also to have uncontrollable blood rages whenever she smells blood, or just feels like it. Also, already be a remorseless psychopath before that happened.

Alice, commend Fifi on her choice of motivational decorations. Fifi, giggle a lot.

Percy, somehow manage to free yourself. Quickly write down what you learned, then attempt to enter the gate.
Residual energy left over from the simultaneous crossing of such a large number of people (and Jack's magic capacitor), keep the gate ajar enough to allow Percy's wards to open it again and allowing him to cross (but not cross back).
Percy, find yourself on the other side. Then pick a direction and start walking, taking notes along the way.
