Challenge #02637-G080: The Right Tool

Logging for Records (date here) Video log shows a helmeted figure with an already darkened faceplate.

Shadow, Hunter, Last Scream, I've had a lot of nicknames over the course of my career. Most of them pretty accurate, I will admit. I am a stone cold killer and I have never failed to take down my target. But I'm not like the Pax Humanis guys, not by a long shot. My mind is as clear as a bell. I don't take pleasure in this job, I do it because it's necessary.

My current target is a space station ran by a DeRegger group. Proof had been shown they are having havenworlders kidnapped to use them like animals for experimentation. This rotten core has to go. You want to destroy an entire place, you send in the sledge hammers, the Pax Humanis. You want a precise strike, you send in people like me. Clear-minded, swift, merciless, deadly. Now it is time to cut out the rot, and leave the fruit intact. In I go.....

Of all the range of Human insanity, none is more powerful than the delusion that the sufferer is perfectly sane. Some perfectly sane Humans can blend in with other citizens, but others... Others are like Human Hue. She was another part of Pax Humanis. Some were bludgeons. She was a scalpel. Kept separate from the bludgeons of the more infamous section of Pax Humanis, she was employed, and deployed, with precision.

Some called her The Vapour, some called her Shadow. Some named her Hunter. All were accurate. Some called her The Last Scream, which was inaccurate, since she caused others to do so. She was put into play when only one needed to die.

Human Vae considered herself perfectly sane. She had paperwork to prove it. She had a logical and rational mind and thought everything through. Including her kills. Some people, she rationalised, needed to perish for the greater good. They were the only ones who were necessary eliminations. She did so quickly, efficiently, and without any other trace of her passage.
