I received a copy of this letter from Jahan to members of her Faction. She fears that the Acolyte will use the Anomaly in Tokyo to launch a major strike against ADA.
It’s pretty clear to me that Akira Tsukasa is on her way to being one of the most influential researchers in the world of Ingress. Reports suggest she’ll be on the ground at the Tokyo Aegis Nova Anomaly. I suspect we’ll learn much more about her as her influence begins to spread.
Much of last week centered around Jahan’s goals for the second set of Aegis Nova Anomalies on June 25th, but in the end, those plans were dust. The Enlightened claimed the June 25th Anomalies by a large margin, and now Jahan’s only hope is to prevent the Enlightened from using the Tokyo XM Anomaly to launch their attack against the AI. With no weapon to use against Jarvis, the most she can hope for is to succeed on defensive grounds.
In case you haven’t already tuned in, be sure to check out the Ingress Anomaly Live Stream… it’s happening right now.
The June 25th Anomalies have begun. I wanted to take a minute to talk about what each Faction is fighting for today.
I received a call from a most unexpected source. The news he shared was worrying. I transcribed a portion of our conversation. Read it and you’ll see what’s troubling me.
This leaked transcript confirms the rumor that Jahan plans to reach into the Ultimate using the energy from the Aegis Nova Anomalies.
If the Resistance win and she succeeds, she will have gained access to Nigel Moyer’s memory of the encryption code that hides his research.
With that research in hand, her goal of transforming the Aegis Nova shield into a weapon to use against Jarvis will be within reach.
Jahan: We intend to foil Jarvis, prevent his attack on ADA. The Resistance must win at the #AegisNova Anomalies on June 25.
If there was any doubt that Jahan and Smith were behind what happened to Nigel Moyer, this conversation should put those doubts to rest.
Just under one week remains until the next Aegis Nova Anomalies. I suspect when their dust settles we’ll know just who is on the offensive, who is on the defensive, and perhaps just how much more of a cost we are going to have to bear in this conflict.
