DETAINEE

That is not the real you, Sergeant REDACTED.


SGT N

(chuckling) Don't try to play mind games. I know what I am.


DETAINEE

You aren't real, Sergeant REDACTED. Not in the sense that I am real. It is why we unfortunately inflicted such grievous losses on you and your nation. It is why I do not currently fear for my life.


SGT N

You should fear for your life. The REDACTED is on the way.


DETAINEE

Yes, well, I am sure she will want to gloat over me.


SGT N

She?


DETAINEE

REDACTED is a female. Or did you not know that? I often forget how little your masters tell you. So many lies.


SGT N

(inaudible)


DOC

Yes.


SGT N

Let's try again. Are you what is commonly known as an Unfolder?


DETAINEE

Yes.


SGT N

Why are you here?


DETAINEE

Because the forces of your nation successfully intercepted our smuggling operation and brought overwhelming martial force to bear against myself and my compatriots.


SGT N

Were your compatriots human or were they Unfolders?


DETAINEE

There were two others like me in the group. The rest were human.


SGT N

What happened to the other Unfolders?


DETAINEE

I am not certain, but I believe one was decapitated by shrapnel and the other was crushed under the feet of one of your mechanical suits.


SGT N

You don't seem particularly upset by that.


DETAINEE

It is not the outcome I would have sought. I feel...


SGT N

What? You feel what?
