"When the Ferryman is gone, no souls remain in the Underworld. The Underworld Era is over." After the death of the Ferryman, the Underworld was demolished. The former super hackers from the 404UR formed a white hat squad, Vanth, with Gino as their leader. Remington’s localized amnesia erased everything that had been happening since File Delta off his mind, however, fragments of his long lost memories are beginning to rise to the surface. The latent secret of the Cavanaugh family includes not only a serial murders, but also an untold family member. The missing person report lodged for Ash during winter twenty years ago leads to Vanth’s breakthrough on the investigation of the mysterious three unit squad, Squad 1225. By diving deeper into the hidden truth, Vanth eventually unveils the connection between Ash and Raven Redwoods. Perhaps what Gino and the squad know about Remington, Ash, and Raven is just another cypher waiting to be decrypted.

He quickly picks it up.In the old photo, five of the FBI agents smile resplendently in their uniforms, disseminating an ambiance of a family with joy and warmth.Ash flips the old photo around, there's a long sentence written at the back of it."If we had expected the twist in the ending, perhaps we won't choose to cherish each other since the very beginning. Are you like me? "By the time Ash reads till the end, the photo burns down quietly, it turns into fragments and ashes, slowly vanishing in his palm.Ash then looks up into the sky, he sees the sun burning bright, a face appears

    Orcus P.I..It's late. Remington lazily walks to the door and flips the plate, the word "Open" is now facing inside."Another busy day at Orcus!" said Circe, stretching her body while she sits on her chair."It's good!" applauded Remington, "That means more money!"After he left the federal two months ago, he started up a small business, he named it Orcus Private Investigator. Since then, Orcus became the one and only private investigator in town, hence Remington became famous quickly. He had been hired often with various types of cases such as tracing service, criminal defenses, anti-fraud work, technical surveillance counter-measures, and trade secrets protection. Sometimes he needs to observe situations and gather evidence with a view to report as a professional witness too.Well, that's not really a big deal for him to handle all by himself, until he came across with cases related to malware and cyber criminal activities and computer forensics

Ash quickly answers it without hesitating."You're supposed to call back earlier—""Is this someone who knows Mr. Remington Cavan Develier? We are calling you because we found that you're the last person called in earlier today."A lady spoke in a gentle and formal way on Remington's phone, that is what Ash did not expect.  Moreover, she knows his middle name. She should have seen Remington's ID, Ash makes a guess."Yes, I know him, my name is Ash Auberon." said Ash, "Is this somewhere from the police station or the clinic...?""Good evening Mr. Auberon, we're from the hospital.""Hospital?"<

    Orcus P.I..It is late. Circe is working alone tonight.Remington never returned after he left Orcus last night. Circe tried to call, but no one answered. She waited for him, until earlier tonight she tried to allocate his phone. She tracked the phone down and found it was at the same location where Ash's phone was at. She called Ash.Ash told her Remington was dead.Circe hung up the phone at once. She cried, until she saw a message come in from nowhere.She found this message weird. It wasn't being sent by mail or any applications, instead, it was sent in by a type of virus file. She frowns."Who the hell is this? How did he break through my firewall?"As she frowns, she clicks on the message notification. An extension window jumps out.>[GYPS777] Successfully connected with CODE-C02.

Gino's voice came in right after Remington spoke, "All devices are on standby.""Good." said Remington, "Now tell me where he's at.""Look at the phone I gave you, that's the map captured by the drone." Gino explains, "The green line is the layout plotted out by the walls, and the red dot represents the device that CODE-C02 had tracked down earlier, that should be his cellphone. And the cyan one is you.""Alright." Remington nods and starts to study the map.The map is simple, since the place is just an abandoned factory, Remington does not expect too much. The room where Delta stays included two chambers, one is the larger chamber with an old sofa and few mi

He smiles at Micah, "How are you feeling today?""I'm fine, but..." Micah sits up from the bed, "Why am I not in the hospital? Am I discharged?""Yes, Micah. Well I mean no, but..." Kayden smiles wryly at Micah, "You'll be staying here for awhile,  Brother Lyon left for a vacation and he borrows us the unit." Kayden shrugs his shoulders, he then smiles at Micah again and says, "I'll bring you back after things are settled down.""After things settled down?" Micah asked, "Are those related to this?" Micah stretches his arm and shows his wrist, he shows his wounds to Kayden."Yes, indeed." Kayden nods, "Did you see the murderer's face when you're attacked?"Mica
