Hoi Yan Ng
CIA analyst for the South Asia desk. A young professional in all meanings of that word, Hoi Yan colors within the lines, does everything right and is 100% reliable. A bit uncomfortable when thrust into the spotlight and very much a proponent of the by-the-book approach, she nonetheless knows her shit and impresses with how she always seems to be doing what needs to get done.

Waylon Marsh
Often derisively called “the last cowboy” and not particularly well-liked for it, CIA Deputy Director Marsh is a relic, but a useful one. In his tenure in the Clandestine Services, problems were usually solved in the back corners of dive bars, and he prefers “having an understanding” and shaking hands to the cold, military mindset that seems to be infecting the CIA these days. He’s definitely one to keep away from young agents as he’s seen the seedy underbelly, moral compromises and most of all the uncertainties of Cold War espionage up close, but he’s the closest thing to a man with principles you’re liable to meet in this line of work.

Operations
Your "Wildcard" handler. Beyond that, who the hell knows?

Laith Sy
Laith Sy, Lieutenant US Navy (ret.) , was a promising Cryptographic Officer with ambitions on an NSA job when a motorcycle accident led to a compound femur fracture, costing him most of his right leg. Medically retired from the military, Sy was snapped up by the CIA for their Technical Services, where he has since branched out from numbers to bullets.

Lucy
Laith's therapy dog, adopted from a little old lady who could no longer take care of her. She has a goofy and excitable personality, but above all she is loyal to Laith in a way only dogs seem able to be.

"The Dane"/"Uncle Egon"
"Eccentric" Danish expat and retired safecracker. Though advanced in age and no longer spry enough to actively participate in larceny, the Dane takes pride in his skills and provides all manner of services for gentleman thieves, whether it's equipment rental, training classes or even consulting - for "entertainment purposes only", of course.

"Randall"
Another Expat, though with far murkier origins, "Randall" is a known quantity in certain circles when it comes to investigations of arson and other unsavory incidents, running an independent lab and workshop to investigate politically sensitive matters for the Dutch government and other well-chosen clients.

"Copy that, Samal," Luis says. "We're pushing through to keep the pressure on them. Let us know if we need to clear your lanes."

Martin looks at Ozzy, and his whiskers droop.

"...I wish I was in the mood for jokes," he says. "But you're right. We've got no time to waste now. We must work swiftly to secure the other piece. Whether it holds a cure or not, it must be destroyed before it wreaks more havoc."

For summarizing the situation nicely before I had a chance to and creatively throwing shade at Google Translate, I'm granting Ross a 2-point Refresh on a general ability of his choice.

EDIT: Redeemed for Surveillance!

Solace: Mama. Still keeping a light on for the son who's going everywhere but home.

Worse, it's Google Translate Dutch! Like Dutch Chocolate, it's not bad, but it doesn't taste like the real thing. ;P

Plan is the same: call girl sets the charge in the toilet, it gets water everywhere, you go in to 'clean up' and steal the briefcase. This going on right now? This is the setup for all that.

Three people on the phone, last I checked: said call girl (important), Laith the Company man with the cute dog (important), and the pothead Mason was just talking to (not very important).

As for what Tim's doing...well, securing some kind of quick exit for yourself would be good, in the (likely) event the op goes pear-shaped with you in harm's way. I'd say using Architecture and 1 point of Preparedness would do that, but I'd consult with Robert on that. There's also probably going to be Chinese agents afoot - you could try looking out for them, even (perhaps!) thwart them.

Hope that helps!

Guys, sorry about this, but I got lost somehow. The dutch doesn't help my reading comprehension either. :)

What is the plan now? Who are these people on the phone? What was Tim supposed to be doing?
