脅威ID:

LTE-0851-Cetus "クロコディリアン・クラーケン"

認可レスポンスレベル:

5 (即時脅威) N/A (破壊確認済み、記録書庫入り)

概要:

ワニ類並びに頭足類の特性が混在するように見える巨大動物相(全長約100メートルと測定)。超脅威の体制は - 頭を除けば - 五放射相称であった。LTE-0851-Cetusの下半身は放射状に配置された5本の触手に終端した。実体は触手と同じ軸に沿ってそれぞれ配置された5本の腕部を保有していた。
A gigafauna (measuring approximately 100 meters long) displaying a mixture of crocodilian and cephalopodic traits. The body plan of the parathreat - with the exception of the head - was pentaradially symmetrical. The lower body of LTE-0851-Cetus terminated in five tentacles, radially arranged. The entity possessed five arms, each arranged along the same axis as the tentacles.

実体の頭部が外見上は基本的なワニの頭部に類似している傍ら、実体は頭部に弧を描くように配列された5つの目を保有していた。LTE-0851-Cetusは異常に著しい再生能力を持っており、従来の兵器類の大部分から生き残ることを可能としていた。
While the head of the entity was outwardly similar to that of a baseline crocodile, the entity possessed five eyes, arranged in an arc along the head. LTE-0851-Cetus had significant anomalous regenerative capabilities, allowing it to survive most conventional weaponry.

LTE-0851-Cetusは膨大な第六生命エネルギーの放出や、EVEパターンの検出能力、ある種の奇跡論限界を超越する能力、およびレッド-IV 再生特性を含む、数多くの特殊な奇跡論能力を保有していた。EVE検出能力は狩りを行うために使用されていたようだ。
LTE-0851-Cetus possessed numerous unique thaumatological capabilities, including the emission of large amounts of Elan Vital Energy, the ability to detect EVE patterns, the ability to cross certain thaumatological boundaries, and Red-IV Regenerative properties. It apparently used the EVE detection abilities in order to hunt.

粛清の直前、LTE-0851-Cetusは口腔から奇跡論による火を大量に放出する能力を示した。この特性はこれまでに観測されておらず、以前はLTE-0851-Cetusは行使に必要なEVEを保有していないと推測されていたことより、粛清直近のイベントまでにこれを可能にしたものと思われる。
Shortly before its liquidation, LTE-0851-Cetus displayed the ability to release large quantities of thaumatologic fire from its mouth. This characteristic was not previously observed but has been conjectured to have been an ability LTE-0851-Cetus previously did not possess the required EVE to use, until the events surrounding its liquidation made this possible.

沿革並びに粛清:

LTE-0851-Cetusは3隻の民間の商業船舶への襲撃に続き、北大西洋にて発見された。評価班がこの問題の調査並びに実体の捜索のために配備され、この超脅威が以前は財団によって保持されていたものと判断された。
LTE-0851-Cetus was discovered in the North Atlantic Ocean, following an attack on three commercial civilian vessels. An assessment team was deployed to investigate the matter and discovered the entity, as well as determining that the parathreat had previously been held by the Foundation.

初期の粛清の試みはいくつかの要因のために失敗した。その翌年には、グリーンランドにおける粛清の試みが企図された。しかしながら、超脅威は外部からの奇跡論的干渉によりハイ・ブラジル1に向けて航行を開始した。
Initial liquidation efforts were unsuccessful, due to several factors. Following these, the decision was made to make an attempt in Greenland. However, the parathreat began to travel towards Hy-Brasil,2 due to outside thaumatologic interference.

1988年6月13日のハイ・ブラジル襲撃時、LTE-0851-Cetusは島に大被害をもたらしながらも成功裏に終了された。ハイ・ブラジル君主国との協定の結果として、連合は直ちの撤退を強いられ、また実体の死骸への接触も認められなかった。
LTE-0851-Cetus was successfully terminated on June 13, 1988, during the attack upon Hy-Brasil, at the cost of significant damage to the island. As a result of the arrangement made with the monarchy of Hy-Brasil, the Coalition was forced to immediately retreat and was not allowed to interact with the corpse of the entity.

LTE-0851-Cetusの死骸の現在位置は不明である。
The current location of the corpse of LTE-0851-Cetus is unknown.

超脅威調査

特別オブザーバー:
"Mangrove" (73699274/6H3)

概観:
未知の起源の巨大生物相が北大西洋にて確認された。
A gigafauna of unknown origin has been spotted in the Northern Atlantic Ocean.

超脅威痕跡:
民間の商業船舶3隻の原因不明の消失を受け、異常な干渉の結果であるとして、船舶の航行経路の調査に超脅威調査官が配備された。
Following the unexplained disappearance of three civilian commercial vessels, Parathreat Investigators were deployed to examine the planned routes of the vessels for any anomalous interference.

経路の巡回に際し、巨大実体が我々のソナーに浮上した。それは通常あり得るありとあらゆるものよりもはるかに巨大であったため、我々はそれを超脅威の兆候と見なした。我々は隅々まで調査するため、+1Gen潜航ドローンを配備した。
Upon patrolling the route, a large entity came up on our sonar. It was much bigger than anything normal could be, so we took that as indication of a parathreat. We deployed a +1Gen submersible drone down to investigate.

ドローンは容易に、遊泳し、我々に気付いていないように見える実体を発見できた。目下全長約90メートルであり、若干イカに類似するように見え、ワニのような構成要素を持っているように見える。我々は添付した2つの写真を手に入れた。
The drone was able to easily find the entity, which was swimming and had not appeared to notice us. It's approximately 90 meters long at the moment and appears to be somewhat squidlike, with elements of what appears to be a crocodile. We got a couple photos, which I've attached.

実体が、おそらくは軍事兵器に由来する巨大な瘢痕を持つように見えることは注目すべきである。私見によれば、これは主要な超常組織の一つが、他の者がこれと戦い、それを秘密にしないよう、関与していることを示唆するものである。
Of note is that the entity seemed to have large scarring from what appeared to be military weapons. To me, this implies involvement from one of the major paranormal organizations, as nobody else would fight this and keep it secret.

推奨されるレスポンス/要請:
実体によって疑いの余地無く破壊され失われた行方不明の民間船舶3隻に対し、標準的な隠蔽操作を実行せよ。
Perform basic cover-up operations for the three civilian vessels that went missing - they were undoubtedly destroyed by this thing, and have been lost.

これ以上民間の船舶が実体の標的にされぬよう、実体が確認された地点周辺の通常領域を立入禁止区域に設定せよ。
Establish a no-go-zone for the general area surrounding the where the entity was spotted, so no more civilian vessels will be targeted by the entity.

実体の交戦規定を整備せよ。おそらくは4あるいは5の高レスポンスレベルが推奨される。我々がここしばらくの間に対処した中でも最も巨大なCetus実体の1つであるため、即時の粛清が望まれる。
Prepare a Rules of Engagement for the entity. Recommending a high Response Level, most likely 4 or 5. Immediate Liquidation should be preferred, as this is one of the larger Cetus-entities we've dealt with in a while.

実体がどこから来たのかを研究せよ。完全武装集団が過去に戦闘したようだが、それがこの惑星を由来するものかは疑わしい。エイリアンか、あるいは異次元のものか、あるいは目覚めた古代の恐怖だろうか?
Research where this thing could have come from. It seems a well-armed group had fought it in the past, but I doubt it is from this planet. Possibly alien, possibly extradimensional, possibly an ancient horror that got woken up?

"Stormbreath" 96231847/0638

任務(場所/目的):

大西洋におけるKTE-0851-Cetusの探査並びに粛清。
Locate KTE-0851-Cetus in the Atlantic Ocean and liquidate it.

遭遇報告/敵対存在の概要:

GOCSヴァイキング並びにユリシーズは、KTE-0851-Cetusが確認された最後の地点まで航行し、容易く超脅威を発見した。戦端が開かれると、俺達は超脅威に複数の魚雷を打ち込んだ。これらの魚雷の大部分は命中したが、効果はなかった。
GOCS Viking and Ulysses sailed to the last known location of KTE-0851-Cetus, and easily found the parathreat. Once there, we fired multiple torpedos at the parathreat. A majority of these torpedoes struck, to no effect.

超脅威はその後深く潜航し、俺達のレーダー範囲から脱した。約20分後、俺達はヴァイキングの真下から超脅威が上昇してくることに気付いた。ソイツは船を掴み取り、ズタズタに引き裂き、その後波の下に隠れた。
The parathreat then dived down deep, out of the range of our radar. Approximately 20 minutes later, we saw it coming up, right underneath the Viking. It grabbed onto the ship and ripped it apart. It then went beneath the waves again.

結果:

その時点で、俺達の任務は残存乗組員の救助活動に変わった。生存者はユリシーズが攻撃される前に直ちに撤退し、離脱した。
From that point, our mission turned into a rescue operation for the remaining crew. We quickly evaced any survivors and booked it before it came back for the Ulysses.

職員条件:

損耗487人 (死傷者487人、負傷者0人)
487 casualties (487 fatalities, 0 injuries)

結論/提言:

再度戦闘するなら、水上では行ってはならない。そこは奴の土俵だ、そこに投げこまれるものは何だって破壊されるだろう。陸地へ引き込んでそこで殺せ。
If you're going to try to fight this thing again, it cannot happen on water. This is its home turf, and it will destroy anything you throw at it there. Lure it onto land and kill it there.

PSYCHE部門の記録

海上環境におけるLTE-0851-Cetusの正式粛清の失敗を受け、PHYSICS部門の工作員が適切に交戦するに相応しい地上環境へ実体を誘導することが決定された。
Following the failure to properly liquidate LTE-0851-Cetus in a naval setting, the decision was made to lure the entity to an appropriate terrestrial setting, in which PHYSICS Division operatives could properly prepare for an encounter.

LTE-0851-Cetusは北大西洋に位置するため、粛清に最適な地点は人気のないグリーンランド西岸の海岸であると結論付けられた。デンマーク政府とコンタクトを取り、予てより決定された地域で実体の粛清を行うことについての合意に達した。
Due to the position of LTE-0851-Cetus in the Northern Atlantic, it was concluded that the best location in which to liquidate it was a secluded beach on the western shore of Greenland. The government of Denmark was contacted, and an agreement was reached to liquidate the entity in the previously determined area.

工作員はLTE-0851-Cetusが狩りに使用するものと思われるEVEパターンを用いて、LTE-0851-Cetusの北への誘導を開始した。この戦略は成功し、超脅威は粛清予定地へ向けて航行を開始した。
Operatives began to lure LTE-0851-Cetus north using EVE patterns, which LTE-0851-Cetus appeared to hunt using. This strategy was successful, and the parathreat began to travel towards the planned liquidation location.

しかしながら、作戦は計画通りにはならなかった。
However, operations did not go according to plan.

要約
ハイ・ブラジル周辺の奇跡論による厄除け術は損なわれつつあるようで、もはや都市を適切に保護してはいません。これらの厄除け術は島で起こる不幸を防ぐために確立されたもので、その結果として島の境界線内に異常性のある小規模な幸運のオーラを生じていました。[1]厄除け術が完全に損なわれた場合、先立つ異常性幸運オーラの兆候に続き、蓄積された不幸が島に流れ込むでしょう。[2]
The thaumatologic wards surrounding Hy-Brasil appear to be failing and are no longer properly protecting the city. These wards were established to prevent misfortune from occurring upon the island, which has resulted in a minor aura of anomalous good luck within the boundaries of the island. [1] Based upon prior indications of anomalous fortune auras, should the wards completely fail, the accumulated misfortune will collapse onto the island. [2]

ハイ・ブラジル内の、それも短期間における異常確率の急激な逆転は、島と内部の都市に多大な影響を及ぼすものと思われます。これらの影響の正確な性質は明らかではありませんが、おそらくは甚大なものとなるでしょう。
The sudden reversal of anomalous probability within Hy-Brasil within a short time frame will likely have drastic repercussions upon the island and the city located within. The exact nature of these repercussions is unknown but could be drastic.

過去の研究成果によれば、奇跡論的厄除け術の損耗は急激且つ異常な気象学的パターン[3]や、非常に激しいEVEパターンを伴うことが予想されます。
Based upon past results, it is expected that the failure of these thaumatologic wards will be accompanied by sudden, anomalous meteorological patterns [3] as well as extremely high EVE patterns.

On June 13th, 1988, the wards surrounding Hy-Brasil suddenly and unexpectedly failed, resulting in immediate anomalous weather patterns, and a sudden EVE spike. LTE-0851-Cetus was close to Hy-Brasil as a result of the GOC's intentions to terminate it in Greenland, and immediately traveled towards Hy-Brasil instead.

LTE-0851-Cetus was one of the few anomalous organisms capable of reaching Hy-Brasil under its own ability, and it swam towards the island. The Coalition was unable to immediately prepare a method of reaching Hy-Brasil and was unable to reach the island immediately.

By the time the Global Occult Coalition was able to reach Hy-Brasil, LTE-0851-Cetus had already caused substantial damage to the infrastructure of the island, including the destruction of the palace. General Rockefeller immediately ordered heavy bombardment of the parathreat without regard for the existing infrastructure, the majority of which had already been destroyed.

During the attack, LTE-0851-Cetus displayed the ability to breathe large amounts of thaumatological fire, which had not been previously observed. It has been theorized that LTE-0851-Cetus needed a requisite amount of EVE in order to release such an attack, which it did not have access to until it absorbed a large amount of EVE released during the fall of Hy-Brasil's wards.

The initial assault upon LTE-0851-Cetus was unsuccessful, as a result of the entity's regenerative properties. Continued bombardment of the parathreat continued until General Rockefeller gave the order to deploy a Casaba-Howitzer Nuclear Directed Energy Weapon, which had been intended for use as a last resort.

The CHNDEW was successful at liquidating the parathreat, but resulted in a significant amount of damage to the surrounding area of Hy-Brasil. During the resultant cleanup and aftermath of the event, the heir apparent to the throne of Hy-Brasil commanded the Coalition to immediately withdraw. As a result, the GOC was not able to conduct proper cleanup measures of LTE-0851-Cetus's remains.

AOD (Armaments Used in Destruction) report from the files of Marshall Prescott, Quartermaster Sergeant-Sector 06. For the purposes of brevity, only +1/2Gen and AltGen Equipment have been listed.

需品課-AOD-0691
番号 指定 機材名 数量
1 +1Gen-NBS GOC Nuclear Battleships Ulysses and Aeneas 2
Notes: The Ulysses and the Aeneas contained the appropriate thaumatological instruments for reaching Hy-Brasil, and allowed Coalition agents to deploy there.
2 +2Gen-PCT Concentrated Plasma Cannon Tank 6
Notes: The plasma streams fired were able to severely damage the scales of LTE-851-Cetus. The scale damage dealt to LTE-0851-Cetus did not regenerate as quickly as other armaments.
3 +1Gen-5GJ Fifth Generation Jet Fighter 8
Notes: The fighter jets were able to redirect the movements of LTE-0851-Cetus, keeping it from areas designated as major civilian safezones.
4 AltGen-TKB Thaumatologically Keyed Bombs 12
Notes: Bombs keyed using thaumatological ritual to only harm the parathreat, and cause no destruction to the surrounding area. These were effective, but due to the sudden nature of the attack, only a limited number were ready for deployment and were not enough to kill it.
5 AltGen-ATC Anti-Thaumatologic Cannons 4
Notes: Having noted the high levels of EVE and Akiva radiation emitted by LTE-0851-Cetus, anti-thaumatological weapons were deployed in the hopes of nullifying the anomalous properties of the parathreat. These weapons were only partially successful, but managed to slow some of the entity's regenerative properties.
6 +2Gen-MHM Magneto Hydrodynamic Explosive Munitions 10
Notes: Ten MAHEM warheads were deployed with the goal of penetrating the scales of the parathreat, which had been resistant to prior forms of attack. These weapons were successful at damaging the scales of the entity.
7 AltGen-GER Gravity Enhanced Railgun 3
Notes: Three Gravity-Enhanced Railgun units were deployed to fire several payloads of conventional weaponry at LTE-0851-Cetus. The payload of the GER units deployed did not significantly harm the parathreat.
8 +2Gen-CHN Casaba-Howitzer Nuclear Directed Energy Weapon 1
Notes: The +2Gen-CHN was deployed to Hy-Brasil only for usage as a last resort weapon, upon the failure of all other weapons to liquidate LTE-0851-Cetus. This armament was able to successfully liquidate the parathreat.

件名 Liquidation of LTE-0851-Cetus and Resultant Damage to Hy-Brasil
I am pleased to report that our operatives were able to kill LTE-0851-Cetus (the Crocodilian Kraken) on June 13th, 1988, in Hy-Brasil.

By the time we made it to Hy-Brasil, the city had already descended into chaos and ruin. The storm was bad enough to cause panic, and then a fire-breathing squid monster crawled out of the ocean. It was a recipe for disaster, and that is what happened.

We bombarded that beast with everything we had, but it regenerated from just about everything we threw at it. I burned a hole in it straight down to the bone and minutes later you couldn't even tell I did anything.

It took hours of blasting it with our most advanced weaponry for it to begin to falter. We shot it with magic, with bullets, with fire, with plasma and they only slowed it down a little.

After all of our weapons had done nothing to it, I decided I had enough. The only weapon that had done much of anything was the Plasma Tanks, and I came to the conclusion that an energy weapon was our best option. Given that, the usage of the Casaba-Howitzer became justified.

Since that was the first field usage of the Casaba-Howitzer, I am expected to briefly address how it functioned: extremely well. It annihilated the parathreat. Left a hole right in its head that didn't grow back.

But that's my problem - the parathreat was not the only victim of the device. It destroyed far too much of the surrounding area of Hy-Brasil for my standards. Initial reports of the incident have indicated that there were several hundred civilian casualties as a result of the deployment of the device. The usage of the Casaba-Howitzer was not justified.

The decision to use the Casaba-Howitzer was entirely my own. None of my men were responsible, and those that activated it were only following orders. The deaths of those caused as a result of the weapon's deployment are my responsibility

Madam Al Fine, I am filing a court-martial against myself for violations of Third Mission Concerns. Regardless of their findings, I will be retiring from service, as I can no longer view myself as equitably acting out the good of the world.

I have failed the Coalition and, more importantly, humanity.

General Rockefeller was tried by the Council of 108 for violations of Third Mission (Protection) Concerns and was found Not Guilty, by reason of the primacy of the First Mission (Survival) over the Third Mission. The liquidation of LTE-0851-Cetus was deemed to be a significant enough threat to First Mission concerns as to necessitate the complete abandoning of all other Missions. Thusly, the deployment of the Casaba-Howitzer Nuclear Directed Energy Weapon was excusable.

Based upon the testimony and insistence of General Rockefeller, further usage of the CHNDEW has been permanently suspended by the Global Occult Coalition for general usage. However, the Council of 108 has retained the right to deploy the CHNDEW in high priority decisions, as decided by the Council of 108.

Following his acquittal, General Rockefeller voluntarily retired from Global Occult Coalition service.
