What is behind the black bars? What is in the depths of Central Records? Well, you'll probably never know, but here's a little peek behind the curtain. Scrabbling through old desks, looking at that odd form in the trash, listening to that guy on the phone in the bathroom, you can learn things…
Why didn't 682 slaughter Clef?
Whatever Clef had done that causes his head to be unrecordable seems to bugger up more then just cameras. 682 was unsure as to what in the fuck was going on. 682 isn't inherently a violent organism, as we understand the term. When not faced with unreal terror, 682 is actually somewhat cautious and shy, like many big predators. If Clef had stayed inside, 682 would have probably adapted past the “face cycling” thing, and butcher him. As it was, the big gecko was waiting to see what would happen.
Is 914 sentient?
It's not immediately clear. It was never intended to be, but like any long-running machine, personalities seem to emerge. 914 is an amusement device, it may be that, instead of simply amusing the users, it's taken to keeping itself amused as well.
What the hell is 261?
The best theory is that it's not from here. Also, that it may be, if not broken, at least in need of service. It's like when a air conditioner needs a recharge of freon. It'll run for a while fine, but then starts to sputter out, and die. Rather then just stop working, it seems that whatever process it uses to vend goodies starts to wander, pulling treats, yes, but not always ones intended for the buyer. Or this reality.
What is 106 doing to the people he takes?
It's bad. Remember that 106 is basically god inside that place it slides in to. The physical damage is almost secondary to the things it does to the mind of people. It seems to have a personality similar to a very elderly serial killer, or child molester. It can't do all that it did back in the day…but age, wisdom, and well-developed cruelty have taken the place of thrills and sexual gratification. Recordings exist, both audio and video, which C.R. will never release. They'd never get anybody to work around the damn thing ever again.
