    Give a dog a bad name

    So, as some readers might have noticed, the name of the POV character of Make a Mistake with Me has been changed from Rebel Yell to North Wind. After some sage advice from people and some careful consideration, I decided to make this change as I feel it better reflects what'll happen in the story, and tie better into the future events. In addition it doesn't sound quite as "teenager-ish" as the

CHS Report #1: KHMRA · 5:50am Nov 14th, 2016

SUBJECT: Regarding last night's disturbance

I've reviewed and wiped the security footage of Canterlot High School as per your suggestion to get a better understanding of what just appeared in this city, as well as get rid of all the evidence. Unfortunately, I don't think we're out of the woods yet. The creature in question encountered three other beings during its visit inside the school, one of them being a civilian. The civilian's memory was luckily wiped of the encounter by one of the creatures already stationed at the school (Refer to email: SRN-02), who then proceeded to drive away the intruder.

As for what comes to the third being the creature encountered, it was one of the non-living familiars that patrol the school. You know, the PGO wave construct (Refer to email: TNTBS). This was destroyed by the creature itself.

The creature that visited the school was apparently in search of a prey. From what I've been able to gather from the security footage, it is a predator whose diet consists of other living creature, magical or not. It exhibits extreme combat power when it comes to physical attacks, but sorely lacks aptitude in magic. I don't think it'll be of any use to our project. Most likely, it's slipped through the cracks caused by recent events.

It should be noted that this creature (whom I shall refer to as KHMRA from now on) is hyper-aware of its surroundings and any threats it might face. I theorize it might have separated its brain into three sections which are all running simultaneously. It also exhibits telltale signs of a form of DID, as evidenced by how KHMRA kept talking and responding to itself when alone. Pursuing it might prove dangerous, as KHMRA might turn out to be more volatile than previously thought of. I shall keep monitoring it if it ever returns... which might be likely, considering it seemed to take particular interest in the mind-wiped civilian before retreating; a fact which SRN-02 found unpleasant, from the looks of it.

One last thing of note: KHMRA seems to employ some sort of natural weapon that utilizes magic, though it cannot harness this power other than instinctively. By turning its right hand completely into an ethereal construct, it can launch a punch with a range of at least 50 feet. By slowing down and calculating the distance traveled by the punch, I was able to calculate that it has to go at least 75 feet per second – same as that of a mantis shrimp. The true danger of this punch is revealed by how the arm takes a snake-like appearance, however: the ethereal energy carries powerful venom with it. As it is non-corporeal, the punch can travel straight into the heart of the victim and deliver its deadly load right to the source. I'd avoid melee confrontation if we ever need to take KHMRA in.

All in all, I'd give it a Rank of B- when it comes to danger it presents. While a wild predator, and a very unpredictable one, it has no agenda or a clear goal. It simply wants to eat. This lowers its threat value towards us. However, it does have formidable physical capabilities.

Well, that about wraps it up. If you have any further questions, you know how to contact me.

Until next time: T

Well, that changes things.

If I may, however, I don't think this is the kind of thing they would be discussing on unclassified email.

The .mil top-domain is reserved for US military and its branches, which is the one utilized by the people in these emails. That being said, you're quite right about the security hazard. Let's just say that these emails have been decrypted for the viewing pleasure of the readers.

4302315 True. I guess I was just expecting a .smil or .ic for classified systems. These people are clearly not on the level, though, so that says the most.
