Xeno’s Paragon: Mission 3
Jessie and Eric Ramsey finally catch a break. The League of Independent Planets has granted them asylum and allowed them to live on the techno-paradise world of Phabian. Jessie gets a clerical job. Eric ends up working at a factory making magical construction materials. He might even have a girlfriend.
Of course, trouble always finds a Ramsey.
Eric’s inquisitor parole officers locate him despite having no official jurisdiction. Jessie gets recruited into Phabian’s ultra-secret counterintelligence agency, Section 74.
Yet somehow, everything revolves around a newcomer to this part of the galaxy. He’s three meters tall with a personality sized to match. His species evolved from elephants, and lives on the other side of the galaxy. Ambassador of his species, this mighty explorer holds court on Phabian, the toast of the planet, and his even mightier ship waits in orbit, a mystery beyond known technology. He could be a great ally or a deadly enemy if he were to take sides in the Earth/Mars civil war.
That’s why Section 74 wants Jessie to assassinate him.
A good agent would put together a plan, befriend the ambassador, learn his habits, then betray him and frame someone for the job. A Ramsey, on the other hand, will get to know him and realize she likes him better than the assholes who want him dead.
