Many of you have recently seen a video feed uploaded to the matrix showing Penumbra Knight and scholar Lucas Pegasi involved in the devastation in the Shade neighborhood of Knuckledown yesterday.
Our analysts have checked the feed front and back for evidence of tampering. The only thing that doesn’t add up is the green glow coming from nowhere. Otherwise there appears to be no evidence.
We were able to reach Mr. Pegasi for comment. "The accident was unfortunate, as was the struggle outside. Luckily, I was able to flee the scene with my life and return to do battle with the culprits. I have sponsored a shelter for those displaced or injured by the damage. Unfortunately, I cannot say more. My official report to the Sky Knights will be made public at the conclusion of their investigation.’
An anonymous source showed us the teleporter records for Sir Pegasi, he was indeed on the scene as depicted in the feed, but left very shortly thereafter.
Financial records show Sir Pegasi was the owner of the building at the center of the explosion, a diner he owned. None of his employees were hurt in the blast, as the diner was shut down for maintenence prior to the incident. According to eyewitness accounts, two repair workers were bribed off the scene by someone who local authorities are calling a ‘person of interest’.
