Seemingly Sloshed Biko Visits Summit
A recent visit to the FTL channel The Summit by the controversial Alexylva Paradox [ALXVP] Gateway Ché Biko has not gone unnoticed by his fans and critics, who have been commenting on it on various GalNet sites. The visit was special just because Biko has not been very visible in public since the destruction of Phoenix Station in ALXVP’s Anoikis colony Origin on 123.02.01, but this visit to The Summit would be likely be remarked on regardless and have left a lot wondering about his mental well being.
The first comments raising a few heads concerned Sansha’s Nation and the Triglavian Collective. Biko mentioned that he preferred Sansha’s Nation over the Collective, in part due to the latter’s disapproval of hivelinking. Some Origin citizens defended him: “He was actually doing his job as Gateway, representing the hiveminded people in our colony.” Others see it more as evidence supporting the theory that Biko is secretly some kind of Nation agent, pointing at Biko’s Nightmares and previous publications by SmEggtalk Press and Gutter Press, as well as his friendly attitude towards True Purpose capsuleer Ji Yung Lee during his visit on The Summit.
Later Biko mentioned that he had encountered sefrim while under the influence of alcohol and possibly other drugs after having been shown a video which had severely distressed him. “I was shown a recording of myself attempting to shoot myself in the head, but I don’t recall that happening”. He continued claiming that sefrim are Sani Sabik. Amarr in particular are labeling these statements as outrageous insults of the Amarr religion by a heretic sod. A spokeperson for the Church of Ché in Caille commented “This is nothing new. I think there have been multiple occasions where Ché discussed these encounters on The Summit. Here…one of the first times was on 115.12.18 when asked about what the strangest thing he had seen was. He also seems to refer to that video then.”
Soon after discussing the “sefrim” encounters, Biko continued to comment on problems with his memory, then went on to say no one liked him, not even himself. Biko then chatted with Intaki Darius Chambers. In that increasingly incoherent conversation he mentioned once sounding and having been like Chambers, having love for all, but that he could never be that someone again after something broke him and he lost his “Way”, and that he was dulling the pain of his loveless life with frentix.
A user of a Biko fansite comments on the forum: “Has anyone else noticed how he tends to act like this more often around this time of the year? I bet it is related to the anniversary of the attack on the Ishukone HQ in Malkalen. His experiences there must have left some scars.”
