"In retrospect,"
 
   Radsuit may not have been the best character concept for an early exploration of the Praetorian story arcs. "Why do I care about any of this? Why am I trash-talking with the asshole supercop guy? Why am I making Moral Decisions? I'M A DISEMBODIED ENERGY BEING. All these considerations are literally beneath me."

Maybe Cole knows how to pull his plug and is forcing him to go into Powers Division. <grin>

Maybe. That doesn't concern me so much as the provided dialogue choices in the mission interactions. I mean, I like that they're there? But they have a certain inevitable flavor that doesn't always go well with the character's inside voice. :)

(They do come across pretty funny coming from Officer Eveready, though. "I think you want me to hurt you, Reese. That can be arranged." That must have come straight out of INTERROGATIONS\TXT-BADCOP.SRC. :)

Mind you, Radsuit isn't the least well-suited to the canned dialogue. There's always this guy:

"You will perish in flames, subcreature." "Yeah, yeah. In the meantime, go check out this warehouse."

"You're stuck living on a planet full of humans who make moral decisions. But if this method of understanding them isn't working, maybe you should go with the 'kidnap somebody to be your morality lab rat' method."

   He can either a) join Powers Division and interact with the sentients of the Imperial City, or b) spend his time in a reactor, helping power Lambda Sector.
