[A short voicemail that gets right to the point. His voice is incisive, but a little bit rushed (since at this point he's still on the tail end of fear gas effects).]

Yes, hello. My name's Qubit. I was speaking with Green Lantern earlier today, and he said I should contact you with regard to taking down Scarecrow. I was present at the attack, and I'd like to offer whatever help I can with the capture effort.

Please call me back at your earliest convenience. Thank you.

Qubit here. I take it you got my message?

[There might be some metallic/computery sounds going on in the background. He's in the lab as usual and has her on speaker.]

[Why does she sound so surprised? Is he really the first who's offered to help? Or is it about who referred him...]

He said you were looking for tech and tactical support? For the former, I'm a technokinetic and an engineer. Pretty self-explanatory. The latter - back home I've worked on a superpowered team for the last few years, taking down people like Crane, among others. I imagine that's sort of what your Justice League is as well?

[Yeahhhh he's assuming she's with the JL, whoops]

[bitterly] I'd say not if he knows what's good for him, but obviously he hasn't the faintest idea.

Not a Leaguer? You're with RISE, then? [Like, he wouldn't say no to working with them either, at this point, he just wants to have some kind of backup.]

[A short pause. So is there a third team? Or is she just flying solo, so to speak? But if that's the case... He takes a seat on a stepladder, rubbing one of his temples.]

... I'm sorry, I feel like I missed some information somewhere.

[He thinks back-] Not much, actually. He said he was with the Justice League and hunting down Crane, I offered to help, and he pointed me to you. I assumed that meant you were teammates.

Jesus. [He can't even imagine what that must have entailed, but the swear-in was enough of a nightmare. Actually being kidnapped by the guy...] Is he all right?

[Oh yeah, the actual topic. He veers his brain back onto the rails.]

Right. Yes. The Paradigm dealt with all sorts of lowlifes, especially powered ones. I don't have a lot of intel yet about Crane specifically, but... the kind of people who crave fear, who take that sick delight in spreading chaos, setting the world on fire and watching it burn... I'm well acquainted with those.

[His tone is charged, but it's hard to say what with, whether it's disgust or anger or just determination. But in any case, he's seen some shit.]

[But that's exactly what Qubit's doing, too... Unconsciously, he starts tapping a finger against his leg. He's not a detective, and he doesn't pretend to be. Give him a digital trail and he can follow it to Hell and back. Give him a machine, and he'll find you the ghost. But without the bitwise breadcrumbs, his investigative skills are limited, especially against a foe he knows nothing about. That's why he wanted a team.

Honestly, he's a little disappointed. Not with Power Girl, but just... generally. In large part, at his own ignorance. He's essentially brand-new here. He has no good intel sources, no real connections. What did he think he'd be able to do, grasping at straws like this?

But he has to do something. People died, for God's sake.]

What do you know about him already?

That's a big "otherwise." [It sounds pretty much on the nose, though.] What do you mean, not the same?

It could be a start, though. Better than having nothing at all to go on. Any idea what those goals might be?

But to what end? Or is that the end?
