For as long as Hunters have traveled the stars, there has always been a lingering concern: what happens when equipment falls into the wrong hands? One solution was the self-destruct mechanism within every Blooded’s wrist-bracer. However, there was still a further problem should a Hunter be incapacitated or killed before the Self-destruct mechanism is triggered. In most situations, the fallen’s clan would be responsible for retrieval/destruction of the lost gear or bodies. However, in the event of a tomb being desecrated or a similar situation that requires discretion, a specialist is an option. Clan Luar’Ke is an otherwise average clan on the surface, to discourage interlopers or those who would interfere in their duties. Most Blooded members of Clan Luar’Ke are trained heavily in infiltration and achieving their objectives with minimal footprint through Ikthya-de Chiva, the Umbra Trials.
In the event their services are required, a seeker is notified by a Clan Luar’ke intermediary and through the proper channels is provided the circumstances and details surrounding the missing gear/body: last known location of the items in question, possible events surrounding the lost items, and potential obstacles that would be in the seeker’s path. The seeker is not informed to which clan has made contact, or which clan the missing gear belongs to. The only relevant information is anything that assists the seeker in accomplishing their objective. The seeker is then sent in either solo or in a very small team to resolve the situation. The seeker or seeker team typically has compartmentalized objectives to accomplish:
Locate and retrieve/destroy all lost pieces of equipment as well as Hunter corpses if applicable.
If any research or data has been accomplished involving Hunter biology or equipment, destroy or render said data/research useless.
Leave no/minimal evidence of Hunter involvement.
Keep damage to structures and environments to a minimum unless necessary for success of objectives 1 through 3.
Upon success of gear and body retrieval or destruction, the seeker or seeker team notifies the intermediary who then arranges a delivery of the missing equipment, or informs the clan of the resolution. The seekers of Clan Luar’Ke are never to know which clan they assisted, nor will the clan involved ever know who assisted them. There is no room for glory or validation in such a crucial task, Clan Luar’Ke will do it because it must be done.
