Caerus – The Hunt: Part I

Excerpt from the voicelog of CMDR Anais Furieux

I have left the system of Caerus. Fitting my brother’s Saud Kruger, the ‘Delicate Heart’, with all the trappings of an explorer vessel, I have laid in a course for Hyadum I. Following a meeting with Freedom Party Leaders Nandez and Ramirez, where I appeared to have found some allies, at least I have a lead.
