Chaos Control Case 23-001: C.U.R.S.E. Part I

Given the success we’ve been having with the sonic identification devices, upper management has decided to give it a kitschy bureaucratic acronym: Chaotic Unsanctioned Rhythm Sensory Equipment or C.U.R.S.E. The way it works is that we place a series of the sensors across a geographic area and leave them running 24/7. As rhythmic music gets played within that region, the sensors hone in on the originating location. CCB has squads on standby to react to when a high confidence location is found so that we can immediately conduct a raid. Turns out that someone in management agrees with me that we should capture some of these culprits instead of killing them. We’ve been arresting one or two people per raid, which allows me to question them. Sadly, these folks don’t have much in the way of information, but I can still make some good of it. I convinced leadership to let me release the ones we’ve captured back into society since they’re low-level and aren’t music makers themselves. What they don’t know is that we hide tracking devices on them while they’re in our custody. Doing this will hopefully lead us up the food chain to whoever is making this music and planning to release it.
