The following missive was delivered to GOC Director D.C. al Fine prior to the emergence of LTE-2712. No action was taken initially, due to previous unsubstantiated claims from this individual.
Letter excerpt: 04/07/2███
Sender: Cynthia Fume (Speaker: Fellowship of the Faith of the Æsir)
Recipient: D.C. al Fine
I have practiced seiðr all throughout my tenure, yet this was an experience far removed from my previous divinatory sessions. Though I had never before gazed upon the true visage of a member of the Æsir, I still knew her face. It was Our Lady Frigga, The Beloved, The Weaver of Fate.
She spoke to me of The End Times, and a violation to the Order of Things. Her testimony in its entirety escapes me, as details were lost in the fugue between states of consiousness; this is what remains in my mind.
…Glepnir has given way, the Great Chain now gone
and fierce Fenrir is freed, unfettered for his feast.
Prepare! For he shall pierce your plane, as a precursor to pandemonium
Accept my advice, as annihilation is avoidable yet.
There was more, of that I am certain. I have no doubt that this was a genuine warning, as the future is known to Frigga, yet she cannot directly affect its outcome. It is in our hands now. The Coalition must make preparations to neutralize this threat, whatever the cost.
Between 02:10-03:30 on 04/11/2███, tsunamis struck along the Northern borders of Russia, Alaska, and the Canadian Arctic Archipelago Nunavut. By the end of the day, the death toll had been estimated to have peaked at roughly three thousand civilian casualties.
Video evidence recorded by civilians in several countries from the Northern Hemisphere were uploaded onto several video-sharing websites within the first several hours of the disaster; claiming to depict 'UFOs' in the sky. Media blackout and censorship protocols were automatically initiated in accordance with Second Mission (Concealment) concerns. [Queries concerning informational security regarding this incident should be forwarded to Jules Whitaker-DPRIC Supervisor]
Assessment Team-743 "Snow Blind" was deployed at the behest of Assistant Director "Ursus Major". AT-743 was chosen due to proximity, and arrived on the scene at roughly 04:20. The team observed Foundation forces aboard the SCPS Quarantine interacting with the anomaly. AT-743 was successful in intercepting Foundation communication channels; which revealed the fact that Foundation operatives were focusing on information suppression with regards to the entity, as wholesale containment was considered unfeasible.
At-743 relayed this information to High Command, and an emergency Convergence was called. Assistant Director "Papa Romero" was instructed to reach out to The Foundation in order to form a joint task force due to his position <CLASSIFIED LEVEL Q BY ORDER OF GOC HIGH COMMAND> with the express purpose of neutralizing the entity.
With acquiescence from Foundation Command, the task force was formed. 2861-O consisted of:
- 2 members of Strike Team 9999 "Max Damage": UHEC-656 ("Robo-Top"), and UHEC-300 ("Spartiguts")
- Assessment Team 743-"Snow Blind"
- 20 Blue Assets from the Center for the Study of Unified Thaumatology
- Micheal Hauer, Fellowship of the Faith of the Æsir (Lore Consultant)
- GOCA Legacy
- A single member of Foundation Mobile Task Force Eta-5 ("Jäeger Bombers")
- Foundation MTF Mu-90 ("Water Logged")
- Foundation SCPS Quarantine
