Fabuleux has been kidnapped!

[EVE Valkyire perspective]

Capsuleers.

My name is Lindra Mahom. I’m Fabuleux’s personnel and trusted assistant. Fabuleux managed to get me a communications license to go on the IGS. But this was in case of a emergency. He was very “Confident” that there would be one or two Capsuleers that would aid him in his time of need. Or if he needed me to deliever any “final words” to his “beloved Capsuleer friends”. Fortunately but at the same time - unfortunately. This is a emergency.

About eight hours ago (05:20) (. Fabuleux was throwing a yacht party for the representatives of the Intaki Commerce. Fabuleux obtained ownership of a “Victorieux Luxury Yacht” to ensure he makes this party - in his words “Fabuleux”. Fabuleux demanded that the party take place in orbit of a planet. So that he could immerse the guests in the wonders of space. We settled on Planet III of the system X-M2LR. Fabuleux also wanted our escort to stay out of sight to avoid worrying the guests. Instead they were aligned to our positioning in a safe spot.

We were to discuss a deal to expand Fabuleux Trend departments into Syndicate space. Everything was going as planned. Guests arrived. We had notable singers like “Maddion” and the band “Skunk Funk” present. Snacks and refreshments were all well in stock.

Fabuleux arrived, began mingling with the guests like usual. After awhile he broke off with the Intaki representatives to discuss business. I was present to record the negotiations.

Everything was running smooth . Until the helm informed me about a unidentified Moa-class cruiser landing on grid with the yacht. It was sporting colors and insignia that link it to a organization I’m unfamiliar with.

The Moa locked onto us and scrambled our warp drive. At this point everyone in the room takes notice and a panic begins. At this point the Intaki Space Police escort warped in to deal with this pirate. We had two Megatron-class battleships and five Throax-class cruisers to defend us. We figured this lone pirate would be swiftly cut down.

But then it fired off a Cynosural Field generator. A massive ship soon appeared on grid.

I believe it was a Wyvern? I’m not knowledgeable like Fabuleux is with starships. But looking through the database of ships of this size. It looks like a Wyvern-class supercarrier. Yet it’s more bulky than the ones Capsuleers and the Caldari navy deploy. Modifications perhaps?

It was sporting the same insignias as the Moa that attacked us. A skull with wings.

However what was truly baffling about this were the fighters it launched. Unlike the carrier, theses fighters were foreign to any database. Custom built from the ground up i’d suspect. They made swift work of our escort fleet. Panic spreads to the attendees still partying.

As I said, I was there to record the negotiations. As such, I have a recording of the final moments before the attackers came in and dragged off Fabuleux and the Intaki representatives.

[Repak] “Look at the size of that monster…”

[Fabuleux] “Fabuleux has seen bigger.”

[Repak] “Is that a Capsuleer vessel?!”

[Vak] “Mr.Bralas you need to relax. The police force w-”

[Muffled explosion]

[Repak] “Oh, GOD”

[Fabuleux] “Oh dear…Lindra can you get Mr.Bralas a glass of water?”

[Lindra] “Y-Yes, right away.”

[Fabuleux] “Now Repak, darling. Fabuleux would ask that you listen to Vak and relax. Fabuleux is positive that the Syndicate can deal with this. Just another hardship the Intaki people will overcome!”

[Muffled explosion, followed by a second muffled explosion]

[Muffled screaming can be heard]

[Repak] “The hell are those things flying around?! Are they Capsuleers?!”

[Fabuleux] “Fabuleux does not think so…A Capsuleer would not bother with such a pathetically small vessel…”

[Repak] “God dammit! I should’ve never agreed to this…Detol!”

[Detol] “Sir?”

[Repak] “Why don’t I hear you calling for reinforcements!?”

[Detol] “I can’t get a connection though to any comms channel. Our signal is being jammed!”

[Muffled explosion]

[Lindra] “The helm just messaged me saying the pirate cruiser is docking with the eastern airlock.”

[Repak] “Hell with this! I’m out of here!”

[Vak] “Mr.Bralas! Where are you going?”

[Repak] “To the escape pods! I’m not sticking around to die!”

[Fabuleux] “Fabuleux does not think that’s a wise idea…”

[Repak] “Shut you’re mouth! It’s all you’re fault that we’re out here - all about to die! You - outta my way!”

[Officer Sesil] “Negative sir. It’s too dangerous with the ship being boarded.”

[Repak] “What?! You get out of my way this instant!”

[Muffled Gunshots and screaming]

[Repak] “They’re coming for us! Move!”

[Officer Sesil] “Mr.Bralas, step away from the door!”

[Slightly elevated gunshots]

[Detol] “Repak! Repak! Relax! Relax! Sit down. Breathe! Deep breaths!

[Repak] “We’re dead…they’re gonna kill us.”

[Fabuleux] “Fabuleux has faith that the security detail will handle this nuisance.”

[Gunshots that sound closer]

[Repak] “I should’ve never came out here…”

[Fabuleux] “Don’t speak like that! If that is a Capsuleer carrier. Then it is truly a marvel to witness…before leaving this cluster.”

[Repak] “You and you’re ■■■■■■■ Capsuleer fetish! I should snap your neck!”

[Fabuleux] “Fabuleux would suggest against that!”

[Officer Sisel] “Officer Domo. Restrain Mr.Balas to a chair.”

[Officer Domo] “Yes sir. Please remain calm Mr.Balas.”

[Repak] “G-get your hands off me! Stop this at once.”

[Vak] “Mr.Balas you need relax! Panic will make this much w-”

[Sound of a torch burning through a steel door is picked up]

[Repak] “T-T-T-T-They’re-!”

[Detol] "Oh ■■■■…"

[Officer Silsa] “Everyone! Find cover! Domo! Roll Mr.Balas’s chair somewhere safe”

[Officer Domo] “Yes sir!”

[Repak] “Let me out of his chair! Now!”

[Officer Silas] “Quiet down!”

[The room falls silent. Only the torch burning through the door can be heard. It continues and stops]

[10 seconds of silence until an explosion goes off]

[Officer Silas] “Open fi-”

[Assault rifle gunshots]

[Officer Domo] “■■■■! My arm!”

[Sound of rushing footsteps is picked up]

[Attacker A] “Everyone on the ground!”

[Attacker B] “Show me your hands!”

[Vak] “Who are you people!?”

[Attacker B] “Show me your ■■■■■■■ hands!”

[Fabuleux] “Take this you scoundrels!”

[Glass shattering]

[Attacker C] “Gah!”

[Attacker A] “Come here you!”

[Sound of Fabuleux screaming as hes tackled]

[Attacker C] “The ■■■■ did he throw at me?!”

[Attacker B] “Just a vase. Come on, round the VIPs up.”

[Detol] “Let go of me!”

[Repak] “Oh god, oh god I don’t want to die. Please!”

[Attacker B] “ Shut your mouth or i will kill you!”

[Fabuleux] “Lindra! Lindra! Help Fabuleux! Li-”

[Thud]

[Lindra] “Fabuleux!”

[Attacker C] “That will shut him up! Come on you fruity bastard!”

[Attacker B] "Look out! He’s armed!"

[Officer Domo] “Basta-"

[Gunshot]

[Linda shrieking]

[Attacker A] “Come on! We gotta move! Go!”

[Recording end]

After that the Carrier jumped out of system and the cruiser warped off to a safe. Intaki authorities were unable to probe it down.

I was left behind. Along with a vast majority of the party guests. Officer Domo and Silsa were slain. Along with other members of the security team and some personnel bodyguards of VIP guests.

The attackers that carried off the Intaki representatives and Fabuleux all wore suits of armor. It covered their entire body and had that same insignia on them. The skull with wings was worn on their shoulders.

No reported civilian casualties. A few broken bones here and there but no fatalities.

The office has yet to receive any demands or updates from Fabuleux’s captors. I’m here to bring awareness in hopes of some kind Capsuleers to keep an ear out. Fabuleux is my boss. But I care for his safety.

The name of those captured goes as followed

  • Fabuleux
  • Repak Balas
  • Detol Desfan
  • Vak Jingu
  • Nadal Uiltz (Was off to take a bathroom break when the attack began. She was reported missing)

Please, if you find anything. Report it to me, Federal authorities, Syndicate authorities or even the Internal watch of I-RED

Thank you

I don’t like infomercials either, but this was a bit extreme. While I’m not a big fan of Fabuleux and his commercials, I hope he and the others are recovered safely.

Hm… a winged skull insignia? That sounds peculiarly familiar… Doesn’t the Valkyrie organization use such an emblem? From what I’m aware, they wouldn’t have any use to target an indivual such as Fabuleux. The Intaki Representatives, I am unsure of why they would be targetted either. This all seems a bit uncharacteristic.

Regardless, I hope that he, and the others kidnapped are recovered swiftly and safely.

The Internal Watch under the Ishukone-Raata Enforcement Directive’s oversight may be of some use, we operate within the Intaki Syndicate and often work alongside their Intaki Space Police.

If you wish to accept any aid from our organization I suggest you send a mail to Julianni Avala, and myself with any and all information regarding this criminal offense.

Of course, this could be some sort of rogue group trying to lay blame elsewhere. Still, I hope all are recovered safely.

Thank you. Everyone here also hopes that our beloved Fabuleux will return to us. And we hope that the Intaki representatives are safe.

Thank you! We will see if we can put together anything that the Internal Watch can use.

Is Skunk Funk alright?

Yes, all musicians presents have been reported intact. However, Skunk Funk did lose a bodyguard when the attackers came aboard. Fabuleux Trends is already putting the funds in place to pay for the man’s funeral.

Of course, this could be some sort of rogue group trying to lay blame elsewhere. Still, I hope all are recovered safely.

I wish i had more to say to help with speculating who was really behind this.

Probably a clear ploy by the Guristas, using the colors of their rivals to trick the unsuspecting masses that the benign organization known as Valkyrie is actually behind this fiendish act!

Huh… I mean… Yeah! Grr Valkyrie! They did it!

I hope these Valkyrie understand the grave danger their socks are in.

Based on Fableau’s previous communication, I’m sure whoever has him will be happy to see the back of him soon enough.

He’ll annoy them till they pay him to leave.

This is not Fabuleux. I somehow doubt that Valkyrie would have perpetrated this, though.

It’s chilling to think that there are others that have access to this kind of equipment to be able frame another organization.

This reminds me that Fabuleux will now be away from his prized sock. A token of a past lover that eased any anxiety he had.

Well…whatever gets him back safely

The attackers may be clone soldiers based on the armor you described them wearing.could you provide more detail as to what their armor looked like.

Black.

Slender and appeared to have been manufactured by a Caldari corporation.

The Security team also repprted that the suits had independent shield generators. One of the main reasons why such a small team defeated our defences.

Those seem like Caldari Assault dropsuits then so it is very likely that the attackers were clone soldiers. My only question now is if they were acting as mercenaries on a contact or are they part of the group that attacked you and kidnapped Fabuleux.

Unfortunately I doubt I personally will uncover any evidence of their involvement. I’m just a assistant to a fashion designer. Not a immortal that can risk investigating into a group with access to highly advanced tech.

Why not just head over to the system where he was snatched or locate that yacht and examine the evidence in person?
