”Don ’t waste too much time on that.
Gloriana will be able to recover on her own in time.
There are much more important matters.
Gloriana just told me that her cousin Ranya will be arriving at Cloudy Curtain within a month! ”

Lupo knew the significance of this news.
”Will she perform the implant surgency upon arrival? ”

”I ’m not sure.
It depends on her own arrangements and how long she intends to stay here.
In case she can only stay here for a limited time, you need to be ready to assist and supervise the implant surgery. ”

”I… I ’ve developed some competences in this field, but I wouldn ’t call myself a qualified implant surgeon. ” Lupo haltingly replied.
”While I am familiar with the necessary theory, I don ’t have much practical experience beyond practicing in virtual simulations. ”

”How successful are you in the simulations? ”

”Not good.
My performance is barely passable when performing a standard cranial implant insertion, but I don ’t have the necessary experience to handle unanticipated complications. ”

That was worse than he expected of his subordinate.
He fed Dr.
Lupo with enough Intelligence Candies to boost his intelligence attribute to 2.0! Did the exobiologist spend all of his time on his pet projects rather than his main tasks?

Seeing how Ves became discontented with him.
Lupo quickly raised his hands in innocence.

”I already made a judgement that I ’m not able to match Miss Ranya ’s competence in implant surgery.
Instead, I ’ve put a lot of effort into familiarizing the specific programming and other properties surrounding your Archimedes Rubal implant.
While it ’s extremely advanced, it ’s over three-hundred years out of date.
There is a lot of leaked and declassified information about this specific bioimplant on the galactic net.
I ’ve even managed to retrieve a lot of updated firmware and unofficial software mods. ”

”That sounds a bit dubious. ”

”I ’m aware that some if not most of the material I ’ve found is malicious.
Don ’t worry, Mr.
I ’ve used all of the information I ’ve gathered as reference material to improve my comprehension of the Archimedes Rubal implant.
After several months of focused study, I can ’t say that I ’ve become an expert on cranial bioimplants, but I have definitely gained a thorough understanding of the workings of this specific implant model! ”

”How good is your understanding? ”

”Good enough to be able to update and tweak the bioimplant on your orders.
While I wouldn ’t trust any of the software mods that I ’ve collected, I can program something conservative that nevertheless improves some crucial aspects. ”

Lupo looked hopeful at Ves, as if waiting for permission to tinker with the programming of the Archimedes Rubal.

Ves huffed at his subordinate.
As if he would let any single person have free rein over something he planned to insert in his head

”Wait until Ranya arrives and familiarizes herself with the Archimedes Rubal. ” He instructed in a firm tone.
”Anything involving this implant must be done with constant checks and verification.
I won ’t tolerate any doubt or dubious actions, understood? ”

”Understood.. ”

Though Lupo looked a little deflated, he soon recovered.
His true passion lay elsewhere, so he didn ’t care too much about the Archimedes Rubal.
It was just a shiny toy to the exobiologist.

Ves proceeded to ask Lupo ’s progress on his other assignments.
The exobiologist hadn ’t made much progress in understanding Ves ’ complicated physique due to lack of time, and he only made a minor breakthrough with regards to uncovering the secrets behind geril spice.

”While I haven ’t been able to detect anything extraordinary about this spice, I am reasonably confident I have been able to isolate the most exceptional component. ” Lupo stated.
”If my assumptions are correct, the active effect that you are seeking is locked inside this specific substance! ”

”What does that mean? ”

”It ’s possible to artificially reproduce this substance, though only at great cost.
Whether the imitation I ’ve made carries the unknown effect you desire is another matter. ”

Ves gestured to Nitaa, who was quietly guarding him from the far side of the office.

”Coordinate with my bodyguard here for that.
She is the only one in my crew who can detect the difference. ”

Lupo glanced at the tall bodyguard.
”Very well. ”

”Is there anything else you can do with this substance? ”

”Even if I can ’t reproduce it, I can still use it as an additive to your meals.
You ’ll be able to receive the same benefits from geril spice without encountering its pungent odor. ”

While Ves was skeptical whether that would work, that was good news.
Geril spice was way too distinctive and would definitely arouse some suspicion to those who were aware of its properties.

Ves hadn ’t encountered anyone else with an extraordinary nose after his visit to the Sentinel Kingdom.

That didn ’t mean he let down his guard.
He was just fortunate that his life didn ’t intersect with any agents affiliated with the Five Scrolls Compact.

He could not guarantee that he could avoid another encounter, so it was better to be safe than sorry.

”How much progress have you made on gaining permission to set up an exobeast reserve? ”

”Oh, I haven ’t spent much time on this issue, but the administrators I ’ve hired already managed to get it done.
Your Larkinson Exobiology Institute is ready to set up an exobeast reserve a fair distance away from Freslin.
I ’ve held off on procuring exobeasts though.
Under these wartime circumstances, it ’s not entirely appropriate to conduct these activities.
Additionally, shipping of non-essential goods is heavily restricted. ”

Ves nodded.
”You made the right call, though you should inform me beforehand. ”

There was not much point in setting up an exobeast reserve when he might have to abandon it later if the Bright Republic succumbed to the sandmen.
What Dr.
Lupo managed to accomplish in this limited amount of time was already enough.
Hiring a capable biotech expert was one of the better decisions he had made recently.
