Your Briefing:

Hannah Carmichael is a Super Spy, who was trying to take down CGT – the evil spy agency, which she used to be a part of. Her husband Zeke, was secretly working to take them down, and roped Hannah (and her fellow agent and best friend, Stephanie) into the fight.
Hannah’s mother Evelyn was a CGT and Global enemy, but now, she seems to have been on the same side all along. Her Father James, was believed to be dead, and missing for over a decade, but revealed himself from the fight in the shadows to help take them down once and for all.
With Hannah’s memories sketchy after a CGT Kidnapping, she went with Zeke to a Peace Talks conference, where the Cataclysm domino’s were to start falling – but things went unexpectedly. Shots were fired into the crowd, at the leaders on the podium, and Zeke confirmed the shooter was his Boss – supposedly a ‘good guy’. What will this mean for the team, and for Cataclysm – is it still on? What will CGT do to strike back?

SIXTY-FIVE

“Clearly we were wrong!”
Hannah tapped her pen on the large conference table, as shouting from all seats filled the room. They were reeling from the ‘Peace Talk’ debacle, but nobody was rocked as hard as Zeke. He was sitting beside her, arms resting on the table with no shouts to contribute to the discussion.
A whistle from the head of the table pierced through the noise, and silence struck the room.

“Bickering about blame or past actions isn’t productive,” James Carmichael said, leaning against the table and lowering his head.
“Roy, what are our sources telling us about the leaders and their Peace discussions?”
Roy stood with his tablet in hand, reading through their intel, “As far as we’ve heard, all talks of peace are now stalled.”
A groan filled the room and James put his hand up to invoke silence once again.

Roy continued, “The missile strikes were stopped, but CGT’s plan worked. Both countries see the attempted attack at the Conference, and in their countries, as an attack from the other side.”
Hannah inhaled deeply and shook her head, watching James’ reactions.
Roy shook his head, “all sources are saying there still may be an imminent war.”
Zeke stood, and James straightened his shoulders, watching Zeke as he considered his words.
“What happened, proves just how deep, and high, CGT really goes.” He slammed his hand onto the table and Hannah jumped, exhaling and looking up at the deep hurt and fury in Zeke’s eyes.
“My boss was a killer, and I didn’t see him as linked to CGT. I should have,” he looked down at Hannah. “They already took something I care deeply about. We can’t let them take anything else.”

Hannah stood and rested her hand on his arm, “Zeke’s right, this company goes deep. Deeper than I thought; than any of us thought.”
She turned to look at James and shrugged, “I know my memories are scattered, but even I can see that their reach extends globally.” Hannah looked around the table at people she could only vaguely recall and took a breath.
“I think we can take CGT down, and stop them once and for all.”
