The search for the Receda Cube on Earth


All of the information in this entry is regarding the assumed alias of Cyrus Quinton, who worked at Hesh Records. This document should cover the trail of discovery regarding Cyrus, and his nefarious connections and doings.

"I'm just annoyed that this Cyrus - or V, or whatever his name is - managed to play us so well. I can understand him being able to manipulate the people on Earth, but we shouldn't be so careless."

- Helena Frye, to Kurt McAllister

The Facts

  • Former sound engineer for Hesh Records
  • Office number 209
  • Join date: 11/11/259
  • Leave date: 01/10/268
  • Worked with Roll for Damage.
    • Alejo Jackson said he was "our most reliable guy"
    • Worked during the aftermath of the Theft of the Receda Cube, though was about two hours late that day.
  • Reportedly had a big argument with someone at the Academy on the day the Cube was lost, though he claimed that he was discussing his contract with Hesh Records.
  • He was among the team to work on the Viard album, The Silver City, and was the engineer who finished it for Earth.

The Trail of Discovery

  • The Viard Album Secret Message pointed to an event happening at Gillit Road Subway Station.
  • Kurt went to Gillit Road only to accidentally interrupt a police raid; it was a trap, and Helena Frye is not a member of The Third Power
  • Kurt was apprehended by the police, and thoroughly run down
  • He struck a deal to find out who made the recording and what the connection is
  • We contact record company owner Helix Hesh, who said he didn't know anything about it
  • Kurt gave us a link to the Hesh Records internal network
  • We spent some time interrogating and intercepting and generally worming into the Hesh system
  • We discovered a poker night at Brain Benders would be the best time for Violet to go and sniff out some info.
    • Two things: it turned out to be Pyramid, not poker; And she took Caine.
    • We discovered Cyrus Quinton worked on the Viard Album.
  • Kurt's investigations revealed the name Cyrus Quinton to be an alias; the man's real name is not known.
  • The file found in Cyrus Quinton's public storage area, purchasereq.pdf, contains a hidden message: "enter those who know what the builder called men under my star"
  • We know Gyvann is referred to as "The Builder".

The only piece of scripture containing Gyvann's direct words regarding the Apple-Thief is this...

The Apple-Thief is the bringer of justice. He makes right all that is askew, though the righting may often be painful.

  • The password into Cyrus's private files is "bringerofjustice", revealing an .mp3 of the murder of Monica Grand.


  • The Perplex City residents seem to consider them one and the same (Although he probably is the infamous V, some speculate not.)
  • Is Cyrus helping us by leaving the file for us to find?
  • Is Cyrus a lesser minion who was stupidly outed by us?
  • Or is Cyrus well and truly an evil person?
  • GuyP lays out all current possibilities

The Third Power

They are an ancient society of very secret intentions. Pietro Salk tipped the ice-berg, and it cost him his life. The Police has brought them to their knees during Operation Bayonet, but they have been around a long time, and they aren't likely to be stopped so easily. They have Operatives on Earth, as well is in Perplex City. V appears to be a #2 man, but who does #2 work for?

Anthony Granier | V | Roberto Solitano | Caine Johansson | Miranda Katsoulis | Unnamed operatives on Earth
