  • VASCU and Lansing

    So I had a thought on VASCU and their quest to investigate crimes and bring slashers/serial killers to justice with FBI protocols and psychic powers. What happens if they apprehend and sentence a major template supernatural who also happens to be a criminal? Certain abilities would be a nightmare for long-term imprisonment - Changeling's resistance to being bound in any way, Spirit Mages and Werewolves stepping sideways into the Shadow reflection of Lansing Facility, etc. Would this likely be a case for the organization's leaders to look the other way while an agent put down the being?

    Probably. At the very least, you will get a lighter reprimand then you would otherwise. Not to mention the dark theories about the leaders' true goals, the nature of the Hall of Mirrors and possible Hunt Club infiltrators in the upper ranks.

    Dealing with Mages in general is probably a nightmare, as you can't explain what they are doing to most people outside of VASCU, because you are a Sleepwalker due to your powers and the rest of the FBI is mostly not.

      Apprehending them seems pretty optimistic in the first place.

        It's rare but possible to apprehend some supernaturals, but if they're able to escape long-term imprisonment they'll likely escape jail long before the trial has even begun.

        You can explain just fine, but you can never actually prove it for those who won't take your words for it. Easiest would be if you already have a working relationship with people who you've shown that other supernatural stuff actually does exist so that they're much more inclined to believe you without evidence.

          I think the book says Lansing is used even for pre-trial imprisonment. Also, that the trial often never comes around...

            The book does mention how very often those imprisoned there are kept under control by finding their weaknesses and exploiting them. It's entirely likely that they work with other supernaturals. They're by no means Task Force Valkyrie, who usually comes into outright kill any present threat. Given that the Panoptic of the Seers of The Throne works with Division Six to eliminate "Reality Deviants" it isn't hard to imagine mages of the Silver Ladder or maybe a convincing Invictus member as being helpful with detaining more potent threats. The only splat that'd truly never help are Changelings and even still, you could convince a few to join if hunting, not capturing, a member of Court acting up.
