Challenge #03457-I169: No Cause For Alarm

They were a Good Lucker, and managed for quite some time to avoid the CRC, the Alliance, and other attempts to find them. They had no intention of joining Pax Humanis. However, like Pax Humanis, using poison, blades, and other methods, avoiding causing any harm to innocents, they worked their way through the universe killing the greedy, the brutal, and the cruel. -- Anon Guest

[AN: Being a Lucker has nothing to do with being a psychopath. However, it could lead to the belief that the Powers That Be are on your side.]

Welcome to the Edge Territories. Things are dangerous here. Hello, I'm 'things'. Oh don't give me that look, you're fine. I have a select group of targets for the greater good, and you are not one of them. I would like to know a few things about where you're from. It's one of those Fiscal Supremacies, isn't it? What the Alliance calls Deregger space?

You have the look. That's how I know. Deregger escapees have this hunted and haunted look. Tell me about your boss. This is a safe space. I promise.

Hm. Yes. I see the problem. I will take you to somewhere that will take you in. You have nothing to worry about. They will give you a new name, and a home, and help you conquer your troubles at a speed you can deal with. You will be safe from them. Oh. My plans? My plans may give you nightmares.
