RPE to human beings
Reading the discussion created by @Ishira I remember that we don’t have evidence that Calvin Is a simulacrum (at least I don’t remember one) so he is human just like PA but both of them were RPE. This keep me thinking...we know Nemesis is after all Niantic’s researchers, also have the power to “kill” them (trap at the portal network as shards) but they were simulacrums. According to the video in which they killed Carrie Campbell, they use dark XM to accomplish “the murder”. Thanks to the anime, we know Dark XM also affects the body, not just the mind like “regular” XM.
Nemesis is trying to recruit agents to their lines, for only god knows what, but I can’t stop thinking about...if someone intrudes on their goals and they having the power to RPE not only simulacrums...maybe @Ishira was lucky...maybe having Calvin still RPE make nemesis think they didn’t need to act against the agent...
A new threat for sure, but take care of yourself, agents.
