Addicted to Failure

by R&D Officer Lio L. Levon

"...m'i a tufiplu cexeus of a eorlv."
Things never seem to go well for the people here in Yoke.
The crew was task to check on Yoke once more. The nation has been on such terrible times ever since that failed rebellion attempt caused a flood that killed thousands of people. A strange illness seems to be plaguing the nation now, however. Two of the crews doctors, Officer Positive, and Reliene, as well as Ento and Pim, went into Yoke itself to figure out the root of it. The rest of the crew were ordered simply to wait unless needed.
I wish I had gone with them.
At some point, a giant Lippy creature appeared, rampaging in the city. There wasn't much we could do from our end, and the only support I could do is by way of Ive. She's a great shot, that much is certain, and the team out there were clearly able to defeat it, bringing it back to what it should be.
It turns out to be one of their former crewmates, the same one who used the corpse of the traitor, Admiral Taupe, as a sort of 'skin'.... It turns out she was lippified to an extreme, and they were somehow able to fix the mistake caused, getting rid of the strange 'illness' in Yoke.
The people of Yoke treated us as the enemy, and the crew intended to leave... But then we all crashed into Yoke. Something affected the cockpit and caused the people within it to sleep, and we crashed shortly after.
Pim was infected with something... terrible, and it seems she is addicted to the substance that makes up of Officer Positive. What in the hell happened down there? Why are they infected? Three doctors and somehow all this happened? What the hell did B do to her?
I should have gone there with them... Tsoki and Midnight called me a Paladin back at the Belle... They're wrong. I'm no Paladin, otherwise I would have protected her, like a Paladin in tales do. I'm just a tool-maker, and I should stay in my lane after this is all figured out.
I'm going to figure out a way to help her, I'll ask for Vatna and Quet's help on this... But maybe she should probably seek someone more capable than me.
A failure like me doesn’t deserve her.
