PERPLEX CITY, SEASON ONE
- See: Theft Case Notes for Helena Frye's personal case notes.
- See: Theft Case Notes/OB for the coordination page on the raid.
- See: Operation Bayonet Transcript for the transpiring conversation logs of the raid.
- In late Januray, 2007, After Scarlett Kiteway was kidnapped, Kurt McAllister contacted Helena Frye asking for help.
- The conversation was productive, and Kurt sent her all information regarding the Library of Babel site.
- Kurt was informed of the ensuing Operation Bayonet.
- After Scarlett and Violet returned from Lancewood Archipelago, Scarlett was stuck in a sullen and moody funk.
- Nathan Earlywine took over the city council, and locked down the Earth datalink.
- A number of revelations came to light, placing Sente Kiteway in jail.
- Despite all of Earlywine's best efforts at controlling things, The Third Power (particularly Combed Thunderclap) were still communicating between Earth and the City.
- Thus, Kurt took the blame for not properly regulating the firewall. Consequently, he found himself on a 'non-voluntary vacation'.
- Meanwhile, the Kiteway house was broken into and trashed.
- Violet and Scarlett were considering new ways to investigate. The thinking (at the time) was that a newspaper reporter may have been responsible, and was looking for story leads or evidence against the erstwhile academy Master.
- Scarlett volunteered to go The Sentinal and meet with Iona Rodie and others, to see if she could learn anything about who might have done it.
- Unbeknownst to the girls, however, the intruder was a member of The Third Power, who had found evidence linking Scarlett the The Cube theft.
- Scarlett was kidnapped while at the Sentinel.
- Scarlett's disappearance had many effects on the conclave.
- Violet was besought with grief, feeling utterly helpless.
- Kurt delved into her rescue (having no actual job to mind at the moment)
- Caine appeared to be utterly, completely, cluelessly lost -- but riding high on his band's sudden fame.
- Kurt contacted Helena Frye, who let him in on all her plans.
- This afforded us the ability to (finally) see what the police have been doing for the past year.
- The Operation date was scheduled for 30-JAN-07.
- The raid began as 7:00 PM GMT, and was neatly concluded by 9:15 PM GMT.
