evsdropr sends Heroes Evolutions players clues and updates via text message and email.
|First mentioned:||March 10, 2008|
After Hana Gitelman's death, a mysterious person began sending emails and text messages to Hana's contacts, much like the messages Hana used to send. The new person leaked clues, eventually revealing their 9thwonders.com username: "evsdropr".
The following is an archive of the emails and text messages sent to players by evsdropr.

|July 02, 2008||Either our European friend dies or a passenger plane goes down. Help me out. Check ur email or 9th Wonders at boards.9thwonders.com/index.php?showforum=101||Subject: The German's flight plans
I've got plans for our metal-bending German friend, but we've hit a major snag. Dekker even called Thompson back at the Company to report it (http://boards.9thwonders.com/index.php?showtopic=63845&st=75).
The extraction team has drugged him so he doesn't throw any bullets or planes around, but he's still fighting it: he's started emanating an unconscious electromagnetic field that's interfering with electronics for a quarter-mile around.
The team has partially shielded their plane so it can fly, but when they take off, every other plane in the vicinity might drop like a rock. Cargo planes we can risk, but a commercial passenger jet crash would bring too much attention. We need to get that team off the ground before the Company decides to the plug on the walking magnet; not only would that be a waste of the trouble it took to get him, but I have some very important plans for pet German.
So here's the deal. According to the flight schedule, there are five planes taking off around the same time as the German. If we can prove that no passenger planes are within at least two runways of us, they've got a green light to launch.
Unfortunately, I don't know what runways those planes using.
I've got air traffic control communications, cargo records, and maintenance logs, and here's what they do tell me. The five planes are each carrying one of the following cargoes: heavy machinery, seafood, electronics, mail, and passengers. The five planes seem to be an Airbus A320, an MD-80, a 737, a DC-9, and an A300. The flight numbers are 227, 639, 91, 128, and 555. The team reports that there are five runways, numbered 1 to 5 from north to south.
The Company plane will be on a charter strip south of Runway 5. Get me proof that there are two runways between the German and the nearest passenger plane.

|August 5, 2008|| Subject: Assignment Tracker Map
It's time to take this up a notch. I'm going to start getting you guys some direct access into The Company systems. For starters, this is their "tips map" where they track leads about possible posthuman activity. Check it out at http://www.primatechpaper.com/AT_2.0/at_map_file.php.
I confess I'm showing off a bit by giving you this. The Company has quietly started tracking even its own agents. Talk about losing trust? We're making cracks!
Anyway, here's the plan. The Trojan I've planted on their system is two-way, so if you've got any leads (real or fake) on posthumans that you want to add, go at it. We can start spreading their resources out until they snap.
We're in the final stretch, I can feel it. When I was young, I dreamed about facing off against Goliaths like The Company, and stomping them into the dirt. I wake up at night and think about the stuff I can do to them. Lots of it would be suicide, but I play it in my head, over and over. I want these people to suffer. I want everything they try to turn on them and eat them whole. I want them to lose and lose big and know why and who. I want this to end in a smoking crater without a shred of these animals left. I won't stop. Never.
|August 8, 2008||Subject: The Company's first response
Want to see something hilarious? I snagged this off an executive email server at the Company: "I promise that the disruption of the intel-tracker will be resolved soon. Network Engineering reports that the vandalism appears to be coming from multiple internal sources. Respectfully, I remind you of my earlier prediction that adding the 'posthuman' agents to the tracker would escalate suspicion between the two factions. I have to suggest that this attack is part of the ongoing tensions between our own human and powered agents. Gael."
|August 11, 2008||Keep the tips coming. I love making the Company's higher-ups look like fools.||Subject: Change of Plans
Just intercepted this: "Cruz: Your request for an additional week to trace the disruption is denied. The intel-tracker has become an embarrassment. Get it under control or terminate it." Good news, right? Then I noticed something: a fake tip I posted just got elevated to an investigation. That means a whole agent team, analysts, satellites, the works, is being wasted, looking for nothing. That Map: http://www.primatechpaper.com/AT_2.0/at_map_file.php is going to be our best friend! From here on out, every tip that goes on there needs to look like the real article. Stick to their template, keep it vague. Let's see how many agents we can hook.
|August 14, 2008||Close call today. They're getting desperate.||Subject: Stay the Course
Friends, allies, they're getting close. Got to keep moving just a little bit faster. Unfortunately, having to lay a little low for a few days. This place is a kicked-over bees' nest. At least it gives time to think. Not always pleasant, but necessary. Living in the midst of your enemy ... sometimes you forget there's something else. Dulls you. That's when you go back to the source. Picture the faces. Work yourself back up. Crossed paths with S today. That's all it took. Back in the groove! It eats you, too. Can't be helped. We're almost there.

Okay, allies, this is the home stretch. Tension is so thick around here you could cut it up with a knife and take a piece home as a souvenir. You've done well by me, and it's time for me to show you more of the picture. I get a lot of my info from Trojan viruses that I've planted on the Company servers. I'm going to port the incoming data onto a private site so you can monitor Company chatter in real-time. Be ready to respond fast if I call for help. Seems corporate sites have better security.

The war is over, and yet it's just begun. The Company is in shambles right now. Many of those who are left are calling for drastic -- even lethal -- action against anyone who could pose a threat.

On March 11, 2008, the unknown new person using Hana's contacts started sending puzzle clues in their posts. Some of the clues were riddles, and some were just characters from words capitalized or spelled wrongly. All of the clues either were or could be converted to letters, and a March 14th email noted that the letters put together would lead to the sender's identity.
The March 11th postings did not mention anything about the puzzle, but did have two words capitalized incorrectly in both the text and email. In the text message, those words were "Posted" and "submisSions". In the email, the words were "relationshiP" and "pSyche". Thus, two letters come from this post: P and S.
The March 12th text directed towards the profiles at yamagatofellowship.org, and the email contained two riddles about the sender's identity. Benjamin Franklin retired from printing at 42, so 41 is the answer to the first riddle. The second riddle was ambiguous. It is unclear as to whether the answer is 1 cause the legend of Kensei is known only for his love for Yaeko, whether it is 11 for Yaeko plus Adam's 10 wives, or whether it is 4 for the number of times "love" appears on the page.
The March 13th postings also did not mention the puzzle, but did have a word spelled wrong in both the text and email. In the instant message, the misspelled word was "exprets". In the email, the misspelled word was "intreviews". The letters R and E are reversed in each misspelled word. Thus, those letters are for the puzzle.
The March 14th text and email both referenced a hidden page on Hana's website. On the linked page, the letters R and V in the link to the archive of Hana's old posts were mis-capitalized (Note: The capitalization was corrected after the puzzle was solved). The email also claimed to contain the final riddle, which referred to what was "two letters within one word, three letters apart". In the phrase, "one word", the letter O is repeated twice, three letters apart. Thus, those letters are also for the puzzle. This email also noted that the puzzle could potentially be solved using just the letters from this week.
Later postings helped to clarify and narrow the possibilities: The March 19th email told puzzle solvers that the identity was hidden among the dream experts' doctor's names on the resources page of activatingevolution.org.
The March 20th text narrowed it down to just 8 letters, and clarified that the titles of the doctors should be included.
And on March 24th, the final clue came only by text message. It was a repeat of "How many times does Takezo Kensei "love"? The word "love" is in quotes in this email and is mentioned four times on Kensei's yamagatofellowship.org page. Thus, this clue clarifies that the answer to the second March 12th riddle is the fourth letter of the alphabet: D. The meaning of the first riddle is unknown.
Thus, there were now eight known letters: P, S, D, R, E, R, V, and O. Those letters can be combined and scrambled to form the word EVSDROPR, the username of a user at 9thwonders.com.
April 29 Puzzle
On April 29, 2008, evsdropr sent an email with a character string puzzle. To decipher this puzzle, several steps are required. First, it is required to first convert the string's symbols to the corresponding numbers on a standard QWERTY keyboard. Then, the numbers can be converted to letters by swapping each number with a corresponding letter of the alphabet. Finally, the letters have to be reversed.
The original string: 7-!$-9-*-19-@!-3 String converted to numbers: 7-14-9-8-19-21-3 String converted to letters: G-N -I-H-S -U -C String with reversed letters: C-U -S-H-I -N -G
Thus, the character string spells CUSHING, a character that appeared in the next graphic novel, Trust Issues, Part 1.
May 28 Puzzle
On May 28, 2008, evsdropr sent an email with a puzzle. To solve the puzzle, it is required to split the code given into odd and event parts.
The original code: siafb ainny ethha izneg lhsaa pbpie nnesh taozm eelcs haebc iknje uhlai zeenl The odd letters: s a b i n e h a z e l s a b i n e h a z e l s a b i n e h a z e l The even letters: i f a n y t h i n g h a p p e n s t o m e c h e c k j u l i e n
Upon sending the solution to evsdropr via private message on the 9thwonders.com website, evsdropr replies:
June 27 Puzzle
On June 27, 2008, evsdropr left a 9thwonders.com post with an unknown password to Devin Patterson's PDA. According to evsdropr, entering the wrong password reveals the password hint question: "B KA****" The password hint question refers to his partner's name, Bianca Karina, and thus the password should be RINA. Entering the password into Devin's PDA from the assignment tracker case-file allows access to a photo album of photos Devin took while in Berlin.
July 2 Puzzle
On July 2, 2008, evsdropr send an email message with the subject "The German's flight plans". The email gave various details on the Berlin airport the Company was planning to use to fly the German back to a Level 5 cell in the United States. For the departure time, users needed to determine which of 5 runways a passenger plane would be on, as if it was within 2 runways of the Company's plane, it would be effected and the Company might just terminate the German instead of moving him. evsdropr did not want that to happen. Later that day, evsdropr confirmed a solution posted in a 9th Wonders.com thread entitled "7/2 Email from Evs" with a posting to the same thread:

On July 16, 2008, evsdropr sent a code to be used to determine the password for Lewis's assignment tracker entry. droxnar711 posted the solution at 9thwonders.com. The code is a shift cypher using the Mod95 alphabet (upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and punctuation). The first part of the code corresponds to Lewis's full name, thus:
From that, you can determine that the shift is -48 in the Mod 95 alphabet (going back 48 characters), and then use the rest to determine the password:

Voicemail #3: Hello Thompson, this is Tarot. I know what you're Company really is. You cannot keep this secret hidden forever. I have see much already and I will be watching.
Voicemail #4: I've got it figured out. I know what you did. I finally put all the pieces together. Primatech hasn't got anything to do with paper, does it? Well, just remember: We'll be watching you very carefully from now on.
Voicemail #5: Thompson, apparently I'm not the only one who's seen what you and the Company have tried to hide. The trouble with secrets is someone always finds out. Hope you're prepared to deal with the truth getting out. You can't hide forever.
NOTE: Tarot also claims to have left voicemail #5.

Voicemail #6: Hello Thompson. Lets just say we know what you're doing at the Company, and we don't like it...And we're going to stop you no matter what it takes, and so you should watch your back if you know what's best for you.
Voicemail #7: Evs, I know you're watching this. I know who you are and I will find you. Watch out for the dreams.

Voicemail #8: Thompson. This is Dekker in Berlin. Hey, my guy over at the power company just called. He says something's started. Something is sending low-grade electromagnetic pulses into his grid. Get this: the surges come about 80 a minute. The waves are shaped like heartbeats. I was going to send my field unit to check it out but it turns out one of your tag and bag teams is already in the area. Could this be your guy? We can't make contact with your team. The EMP is degrading everything for 9 city blocks. If you have got any alternative means for getting in touch with them, let me know, stat. I'm already picking up chatter on the police band about it.
On July 3, 2008, evsdropr posted a message to the same thread only containing another voicemail attachment:
Voicemail #9: Hello, this is Jong Mao Chen of the Red Tyger Division of the Defense Department. I believe you are familiar with the truce that the two organizations [scrambled]. I'm willing to renegotiate any terms of our truce. If you would like to give me a call back I will be available at 218-5862. You may contact me in Peking, Hajin Province, Delong, in Lemuria. Thank you.
NOTE: xcfirefox of 9thwonders.comclaimed responsibility for this message, that he didn't plan for Evs to publish the message, and that he could no longer be contacted at the given number. Firefox also gave a brief summary of ongoing discord between the Red Tyger Division and the Company that began from the division's inception.
