Chapter Seven: Controlling
It was early in the twentieth century when he found her.
Before he did, Jim had begun to despair.
He was only a few decades away from the cataclysmic event that he intended to use as the force behind his attack on the Collective and the Continuum.
He believed he was running out of time.
He had identified a few possible candidates, but based on their cognitive testing and the stability of their psyche, he knew that they were not strong enough to manage the psychic connection, between Earth and HomeWorld, the cynergenic energy he required his vessel to channel was unknown, therefore its strength had to have no discernable upward limit.
Jim had attempted to engineer a prototype of his replicant body to stand in the place of this vessel, but he failed time and time again. He and his replicants could access the cynergenic field telepathically, but there were limits to what they could do there. There were dimensions of complexity to the nous-sphere, complexities he had not been able to fathom, and would not be able to until he found the object of his intention.
Just as he was beginning to give up hope and plan for one of his alternatives, she emerged from an obscure corner of his field of research.
Jim found Kathy, at long last.
She was the thing that he had been searching for, she was his Holy Grail, she was the sacred vessel that would carry his ambitions and deliver justice to the Continuum.
He took possession of her.
In the end, her parents were grateful for the opportunity to give her up. Jim was primed to begin her preparation of the holy victim.
