"(Starlight-Harbinger) "I suppose that you are the one responsible for the reverse-cybermen?""

“Does it look like I care about Cybermen activity?” Father Gideon looked back blankly at the Time Lord and shook his head. “No, it’s nothing to do with me.”

 ”So they are telepathic, without having a brain or intact central nervous system? That appears unlikely. There must be some sort of artificial system galvanising their bodies, the human body cannot last without the necessary electrical impulses, nutrients and energy. Whether that system is computational or biological is irrelevant. Though there is something to be said for a decentralised nervous system. The cockroach principle. Cut off the head, and it will carry on living until it starves.” Khairan appears to have noticed his own ramble at this point, getting back on topic. He’s oddly chatty for a man discussing the topic of animate, decapitated bodies.

 Then again, he had walked away from Ragnarok.

 ”Willpower on its own is powerful, but you need more than that, if you are to physically affect the world. Myself, I am rather fond of applied archemathics - though knowledge of such things tends to relieve oneself of conventional mortal concepts of godhood.”

 ”But is that not what made your organisation fear my people in the first place?”

Father Gideon grows more and more impatient as this ‘scientist’ attempts to pick apart the intricate nature of the Headless Monks, so as he comes to answer back he raises his voice in anger. “I think that’s enough of your ramblings. You are very close to desecrating the holy Order. Are you here for any other purpose than to spit on the Church?”

Leaning backwards on the bench, the priest closes his eyes. “My organisation? Your people? Who mentioned anything about fear?” He approached this subject cautiously. The question he was given was ambiguous, and his interviewer seemed to have many misconceptions already. Gideon wanted to know exactly what this other man meant. Furthermore, he did not want the Silence to become common knowledge. If this man did know something, he’d likely be getting a visit from another type of priest soon enough…

“Does it look like I care about Cybermen activity?” Father Gideon looked back blankly at the Time Lord and shook his head. “No, it’s nothing to do with me.”

 Khairan tilts his head to the left, frowning slightly.

 ”How exactly do you represent them - nevermind that, how do you manage to communicate? Without a functioning brain, there is no self-determination, no awareness, nothing to negotiate with. Does that make you their leader?”

 ”Because something must be keeping them animate, driving the carcass. And I am willing to bet that willlpower is not it.”

  “It could be argued that I do act as an abbot of sorts to the Order, though they would think that a rather outdated phrase - they follow the Papal Mainframe and the Mother Superious. As far as I’m aware, their psychic capabilities are strong enough that they can communicate and are aware of what is around them.”

  Gideon sighs, “With faith and the right sacrifices in your life, anything is possible. Willpower by oneself won’t get you far, but perhaps the Headless have accessed a new source of power from heaven.”

“Does it look like I care about Cybermen activity?” Father Gideon looked back blankly at the Time Lord and shook his head. “No, it’s nothing to do with me.”

 ”I was speaking of those monks. Cybermen sever their emotions - and there is something of a reversal of that concept in removing one’s ability to reason.” Khairan raised his head slightly, smirking.

 ”In the end, doing either strikes me as putting the individual in question at a particular inbalance; emotion without logic becomes chaotic and unable to deal with obstacles, logic without emotion removes mercy. One needs both to truly flourish.”

"I think you may be mistaken. I am not responsible for the Order of the Headless, their asceticism is their religious choice. My involvement is external, I represent them in some situations and I discuss business with them." The priest ran his fingers over his forehead, brushing his hair to one side.

"But if you want my opinion on how the Order function, then I respect their beliefs fully. There is no imbalance because they do not need to follow logic. They follow God, and the Church believe that God knows best."

Anonymous hollered,

""I don’t even know you." - vandaleur [possible recruitment thread?]"

   ”Not yet, but you will become familiar with us should you accept our offer.”

  He opened the folder, and flicked through the papers quickly. “I’m already an ordained priest, so I take orders from my bishop. I take it this will replace my official clerical duties then?” He swallowed hard, and looked up at the woman in front of him again. He was intrigued by this offer, but he was also unsure. “Why did you choose me?”

   ”This job would require you to leave your current job and break off entirely from the main body of the Church in order to join our… ‘denomination’, if you will.”

image

   ”I chose you because you were most suited to the position. As a priest you can understand the importance of our work, and the need for people like you in our organisation.”

  He nodded, picking the papers up, this time paying more attention to the words written on them. “Yes, yes… If it’s God’s work that needs to be done, I will definitely consider it. I will pray and look for signs from him.”

image

  “One question, Madam… A name that crops up over and over again in these documents - the Doctor. Who is he?”

Vandaleur knew that his negotiations with the Order of the Headless meant that he had to be the one to join them when the time came. And they weren’t going to go through with the planned alliance at Demons Run without a new initiate.

image

He was still scared though and he avoided them for a long time. When Kovarian found out about his going AWOL from the job she set off his eye drive, driving Gideon to insanity and blinding him in his right eye. Kovarian’s Silents found him and took him to the Monks - where they finally took his head.
