Shrike Captain Bradley Sullivan


Summary

While playing pool in a bar in Redmond, Shrike learns of a KE captain abusing his position to harass women and puts a stop to it.

Background

Captain Bradley Sullivan would take commlinks from SINless or others convicted of crimes and use them to send sexually suggestive messages to women he interviewed or knew.

The Meet

Shrike is playing pool with Lola Harper and notices that she's received an abnormally high number of messages, and that she seems distressed by this. He quickly takes a look at her messages app and sees they're from 'anonymous' different numbers and sexually suggestive in nature.

The Plan

Shrike excuses himself and traces the messages back to their senders, discovering that they're all originating at a KE station in Snohomish. He is able to put together enough information to point towards Captain Bradley Sullivan. He does some searches on the captain and discovers that he's a decorated KE officer who graduated top of his class... but that women often avoided him or were pushed out by him.

The Run

Shrike hacks into the precinct host and gathers a bunch of incriminating evidence against Captain Bradley Sullivan. Then he uses a Resonance Veil and a Garbage In Garbage Out after acquiring 3 marks on the captain's commlink to swap Lola's number with Ellen Ward's number, who is the division head of KE Seattle. Shortly thereafter Captain Bradley Sullivan sends a message to who he thinks is Lola... only for it to go to his boss. Oops.

Aftermath

KE HR and Internal Affairs quickly search for the person who sent the boss a 'dick pic', and find Captain Bradley Sullivan's marks on the commlink in question, and a short investigation reveals he's done this to multiple women. He is fired.

Game Quotes

Player After Action Reports (AARs)

Shrike: "Using my powers for this felt... just. It was the first time in a very long time I was positive I was doing the right thing, without any doubt in my soul. I wish my career afforded me the chance to feel that way more often."
