The Rigunmor Star Consortium Agent
Eda discovered that Rigunmor (her faction) had sent an agent to this region recently. The Belters, howveer, were keeping it secret ebcause as it turns out, the agent is now dead and the Mhemne scavenged his equipment. It is unclear if they helped the agent, but they did have his body. A fringe cult known ad the Voice of the Ancients, who believe the “Ancients will return one day” believed that this person was perhaps an ancient. They held on to him in hopes he would resurrect. he lay in storage in an unused airlock near the hold they lived in.
Finding his computer pad and his ship records, Eda was able to learn much about the man and his mission. From it, she determined that there is another corporation involved in this region of space – one not everyone trusts. Along with VoidCorp , and the Sathars, the Vrusk run Streel Corporation may have something to do with the exploitation and subjugation of the Mhemne. Eda now seeks to find out more.
The Voice of the Ancients

He was able to channel one signal and followed to the hold that held the refugee cult, Voice of the Ancients. They apparently have learned to channel this energy and make some sense of it. Unable to control the flow, however, Chissa channled too much and fell unconscious from the experience.
