A pleasant drive through swamp infested lands populated with giant man-eating critters and such, a day’s work for this band of adventurers.
Cordelia is driving, the Professor and Chubbs passengers and John Henry following along on his motorcycle. Their destination: Lafayette, Louisiana. Their mission is to discover what happened to a missing agent and the fate of a scientist doing consulting work for AIR, Doctor Mahrs.
A couple hours outside of Lafayette they come across an overturned cargo truck, a huge container strapped in the back, lid cracked open and leaking what appears to be water.
John Henry is the first to investigate, followed by Chubbs. They quickly discover weird tracks and drag marks outside the driver side of the truck, a busted windshield (From outside) with blood on it and a bullet hole (from the inside). A .38 is found on the ground near the door, all rounds spent. Nearby, a severed hand. Chubbs tosses the hand onto the windshield of Cordelia’s car as he clambers up onto the back of the truck, looking to study the huge container.
