Subject captured by Lt. Samara Hellstrom and currently identified as Rene Bertrand of Tyche. Following the interrogation and his additional injuries, the subject was entrusted to my care. The injured foot could not be saved.
During the operation an anomaly was detected. The subject had high levels of a substance that I can only describe as an untruth serum. Medical scans revealed an implant in the subject’s brain which was the source of the substance. I can not see a way to remove the device without terminating the patient.
At this time my conclusion is that once triggered the implant is intended to render the carrier an unreliable source of information. Even the subject would be unable to control when they lie or tell the truth, and possibly to even determine themselves if they are telling the truth or not. This was demonstrated when the subject struggled to give information to satisfy Ruin Dmitar and Lt. Samara Hellstrom once an ultimatum was issued.
During interrogation, the subject showed a tendency to adopt certain details as fact and overriding the truth, including his assumed name Rene Bertrand and the suggestion of his involvement with Commstar. Based upon the interrogation record, connecting unrelated items into conspiracy theories is a hallmark of the substance or of this individual under the influence of the substance. The subject would seize upon a suggested detail to incorporate into their scenario.
One apparent weakness to this substance is that an isolated element of information that is not replaced by a false element can be extracted from the subject. The address of the rendezvous point appears to be one such item.
It is not clear at this time if a counter-agent can be fashioned or when the implant will cease activation.
I will continue my investigation and provide any further information in future reports.
