Collection of the American Arkology Society, No. 1886.53
Location: Searchlight, Pacific Zone. Present-day Nevada.
After the NE09 Arroyo Grande Accord fixed its eastern border with the Southwest Zone at the Colorado River, the Pacific Zone found itself faced with continuing unrest fueled by separatists attempting to carve out larger swaths of territory for the SWZ. As the disorder continued, the PZ escalated its ruthless suppression of dissidents.
In this scene, two members of the PZ’s elite Split-8 security forces chase a boy through the streets of a small community located between the Colorado River and the present-day California-Nevada border.
Posters in this scene, based on artifacts discovered in the Glendale Ark, depict PZ President Nicholas Sung wading in blood before a curtain of barrel bombs. The text, “ASESINO,” is Spanish for “murderer.”
