<<YOU HAVE MAIL>>
TO: Tyger (firstname.lastname@example.org)
FROM: Jamadagni Renuka (email@example.com)
I understand that you have been inside of Omega Sector and have encountered Class Two Entities there. Is there any sort of audio transcript, video record, or AAR you can send me on these encounters?

Tyger made a face and shook his head. He'd known that this would eventually come up, but that didn't change the fact he hated to think about it by any means. He left his desk and went first to a file cabinet and withdrew the proper documents that he had kept for his own records. He also spend a little bit of time tracking down the digital files for the particular case at hand and put what he could onto a data-chip. He looked at one of the folders and shook his head once more before slipping the folder under his arm.
After finding Jama, Tyger simply offered her the folders and data chips. Something was eating at the Clade, that was readily apparent just by the way he carried himself. "Here," he said a little coolly. "It's all I have access to right now. If it's not on the data-chip, then it will at least tell you where to look, if that doesn't help, then I don't know what to tell you."
Tyger grew quiet once more and was about to turn on his heel and step away from Jama's desk. However, something stopped him and he looked over his shoulder for a moment and then just pulled up a seat to sit across from her. "Look, I know I'm not the most educated guy around when it comes to magic and other stuff like that, but I have heard about some of the stuff that one can do with magic. I was wondering if you could help me out. If you have time that is."
"Ahhh..." Jama eyed the folder and the chip and then the clade. "I'm supposed to be drawing up a possible encounter scenario for the Sergeant... but... what do you need?"
"To put it simply, I have heard and am under the impression that it is possible to ward Power Armor from the influences of magic and the like. I don't know the entire process, but I know that it can be done and involves a lot of inscriptions and stuff onto the armor itself. I was just wondering if you would be willing to help me out with that. If you're busy doing stuff for Hemelshot, I understand."
"You want me to place magical wards on your armor?"
Tyger gave a slight nod. "Yeah, I don't know much about the process, only that it would scar up the surface pretty good. I hadn't done it before cause... well... it's a matter of appearance and all that. But this is different now. If we're going into the Omega Sector, then looks get pitched for functionality."
"I... I've never done anything like that before." Jama looked thoughtful. "What's your armor made out of? The... uhm... skin, surface, whatever you call it."
"The standard stuff." Tyger answered simply, but then remembered that he was speaking to someone that knew little to nothing about Power Armor and other such things. "It's a series of Ceresteel, high density alloys and honeycomb mesh placed in successive layers to form a highly resistant composite structure." He paused for a moment, almost having to force himself to keep from rambling on about the subject. "It ain't the best composite armor out there, but it's better than what the other Armors have that XSWAT uses."
"Oh." Jama looked troubled. "Uhm... so, it's not a pure metal then? It's an alloy? That might be a problem." She thought for a minute than brightened, "Maybe we can paint glyphs on it. Or sutras. Something like that."
Tyger looked at Jama as if she were on some sort of drug. "Of course it isn't. Straight metal is either too brittle, malleable, or heavy to be used effectively, but that's beside the point." He really didn't mean to insult her intelligence or beliefs, but he had figured the reasons why composites were used was common knowledge. "Anyway, that's what I was thinking. I don't know how that sort of stuff works, but I figure if that sort of protection stuff can be put on buildings and the ground, why can't it be put on Armor? Anyway, if you need paint or an engraver or something, I can get that for you. I'm also willing to do the work, I just need to know what to do."
"Look Tyger, I don't know what sort of wards are put on buildings around here, but I'm going to bet they are hermetic of cabbalistic, and I don't know much about that sort of magic. I may not be able to put any sort of ward on your armor since I may not be able to contact any elemental spirits within it. The best I can offer right now is something Taoist or Shinto in nature—written spells painted directly on your armor, and even then, I'm not sure they will work. I've never done anything like that."
