Journal 6

My name is [redacted] I work for Ididian Containment as a low level security officer. To pass the time I've been making these journals during shifts, little sketches of what I see here every night.

If you are reading this, something has happened to me...
And you are in grave danger.

Journal 6:
Today’s shift was pretty weird; I met the field leader/captain of the SRC (Supernatural Response and Capture), real silent badass type. Captain C. Montgomery Maul. All security was interviewed one by one (felt more like an interrogation to me) about our feelings towards the Contained and general feelings for the company. I was asked the questions by Human Resources Bill (whom interviewed me when I got the job) in a dark room; all this while Captain Maul stood in the corner; almost completely covered in darkness. I remembered enough of his features to draw my sketch, that cold stare and horrible scar being the stand outs. After my “interview” was over I asked Jim my supervisor about him. Jim (who’s been here 5-EVER btw) says he was here even before he started.
All he knows is rumors and gossip that are passed among the lower level security. Maul used to be a small town sheriff in [redacted], apparently had a rough life. Parents died of mysterious causes, always bullied in school, lost his wife 4 weeks after their wedding to [redacted]. Held down the sheriff gig for a while till a creature (later a Contained) wreaked havoc on the small town of [redacted]. This thing apparently was a level 5… An extinction level creature; Wiped out the whole town… save one man.
C. Montgomery Maul.
How he did it is still lost to time, but apparently through shear will and determination, he did what was considered impossible and defeated this thing (Says the Ididian Containment holds it on the lowest levels with other heavily dangerous Contained, Shit, I do not want to go down there) Apparently Ididian gave him a choice. Go on, retire, never speak of what he saw, and Ididian would cover his expenses for the rest of his days…
Take a job working for them.
To this day, his team has captured over 254 Contained (another of which I hear was another level 5) lost only 25 men, and is highly decorated (Ididian isn’t attached to the military as far as I know, so who knows what he meant by that) Just works every day, no matter how hard things have gotten for him.

Guess some men are just born the hard way…
