Indaris, and the rest of your pitiful group-
It was good of you to send that doppleganger of yourself to us. While it is not yourself, or your fellow group members, it did succeed in giving us the two true names that we lacked- yourself and Tyvernos. Now it shall serve us, as you shall, or you will perish.
Speaking of perishing, your little angel Nara does not seem to know you as well as we had hoped. Seems we shall have to find someone closer to you. She does, however, have her…….uses.
Perished is the one named Oric Bellode. His head awaits you all in the spot my servant left. You have to return all of the pieces that you have in your possession- the Right Finger, Left Foot, Right Femur, and, if you acquire it, the Right Hand. You have exhausted my patience, as well as my lord Anubis. If you do not leave from Mishala and go directly to my home here in Çynopolis all those you care for will perish. I have given you many chances, and much time, but you have failed to obey- now is your last chance!
After that, it shall be out of my hands. The Great Bes and his servants shall be in charge of bringing you to justice, and he is not as forgiving as my lord Anubis. Surrender, or you shall find there are far worse fates than death!!
The Dark Will Triumph!

What an idiot! His desperation seeping through the seams at this point. They are scared at this point because how many pieces will we have found?
I think there are a few clues here worth pointing out:
1) It’s probably safe to assume that the Agent has all of the current CrIsis members’ true names. This could be a bluff but it’s best to assume the worst. Now would be the time to pray for guidance, do some research, ask any friends, mentors, Greminor, guild-members, etc. what we can do to PROTECT ourselves from the many uses they may find for using our True Names. We won’t be able to prepare for everything but what the fuck are you gonna do when someone gets summoned against his will. Literally plucked right out of space. We need to plan and prepare for this.
2) Indaris’s Doppleganger might not be dead. The Agent says “it serves us as you shall” and I’d be hard-pressed to find a better use than impersonating a CrIsis member — especially one over which you exert control. Indaris should start doing his homework and sending out pigeons. The more people who are informed of this potential subterfuge the better.
3) Oric is probably dead. Regardless, the Agent gave us a clue as to his “head’s whereabouts.” He says the dismembered head is in the spot his servant left. This might be worth looking into and pursuing.
4) He knows what pieces of Osiris we have. We can infer from this that he therefore knows where all the pieces are. He may or may not have the balance of the pieces but he’s probably assuming HIS balance are in CrIsis possession. Again, there may be a spy among us or the Indaris Doppleganger blew up our spot. If he knows what pieces we have, and what he has, he’ll know where we’re going. Maybe not in the EXACT order but he can prepare for us. Perhaps its time for CrIsis to do the unexpected instead of being as predictable as a whore in church.
5) His information is OLD. His informant or spy or the Doppleganger or whatever hasn’t updated the CrIsis whereabouts to Yin Sloth yet. We have the element of surprise due to the Safe Travel card. He thinks we’re still in Mishala and he revealed that his home is in Cynopolis. By using means of Travel like teleport and Temple Leap we can INFER that we’ll stay ahead of his information gathering techniques. This is CRITICAL!!!
6) BES. Time to do your research and plan for the worst. Remember Azariel could be an incredible source of information. Anubis is giving up on the chase for CrIsis. Now it’s Bes’s turn. The Gods of the Pantheon of Taut are getting FRUSTRATED. They have battles with our gods to contend with and their minions are FAILING. We need to be prepared for this cloak and dagger shit to end. Bes won’t use subterfuge and threats and kidnapping and treachery. We can probably expect ALL-OUT assaults and ambushes and CANNIBALS. We need Azariel’s help in this. This is an indication of ESCALATION.
Very well thought out Tyvernos.
“Elementary, my dear Tyvernos!”
