Take scanning device and use it on any Vahzilok you see
Look, the city wants to keep this quiet. There's been a rash of mysterious illnesses in the past few days, and a few cases have already proved fatal. We're not sure what this disease is, but it's quite virulent. If something isn't done soon, we'll be living in a ghost town.
We do have good evidence that the illness is connected to the Vahzilok zombies. I need you to take this scanning device and use it on any Vahzilok you see. We need all the data we can get.
Once you've defeated at least 15 of them, we should have enough data.
Here's the scanner. I hope you can find some god data for us.
This small device was designed by the ingenious Jonathon St. John-Smythe. When placed on a subject's skin, it scans the body for any infection.
Defeat x @ Any (Vahzilok)
Thanks for scanning those Vahzilok, Red Tomax. If they were carriers of this strange new disease, this data will be invaluable.
The best minds in Paragon City are working on this data you collected from the diseased Vahzilok.
Eliminate the diseased Vahzilok and collect samples of their tissue and blood
We had people all over the city scanning Vahzilok, but you got the best results. Based on your data, we think we've discovered where the diseased zombies are coming from! No surprises here; those walking disease factories have been hanging out in the most unhygenic place they could find: the sewers. I need you to eliminate the diseased Vahzilok and collect some samples of their tissue and blood.
Get back to me as soon as you can,red Tomax, and watch out for a Vahzilok they call Vivisector. He's as nasty as they come.
Sewer @ 'Boomtown' (Vahzilok)
On the way here, you passed some kids playing kick-the-can. They have no idea that the Vahzilok infection could soon be ripping through their neighbourhoods like a forest fire.
Objective: You found pure samples of the Vahzilok disease!
Mission Complete: You have located pure samples of the Vahzilok disease.
Great work, Red Tomax! These samples are the disease in it's purest form. With these, we're sure to find an antidote. I'll get tests run on them immediately..
Take the diseased blood samples to Professor St. John-Smythe for final processing
I'm sorry to say this, but you've been infected with the Vahzilok virus. Now, I don't want you to panic; it's at a very early stage, and we're already hard at work on a serum. If you could take these diseased blood samples to Professor St. John-Smythe for final processing, I'm sure he could give you a shot right away.
If you start to feel woozy, whatever you do, don't go to sleep!
Thank goodness you're here, Red Tomax! Our labs are under attack by Vahzilok zombies, and we need your help! If that lab falls to the Vahzilok, our hopes for a cure will be ruined!
Saving the scientists is the only hope you have of curing the Vahzilok wasting disease.
Mission Complete: You have rescued the scientists and saved the labs. One of the scientists gave you a shot to cure you of the Vahzilok disease.
So, Dr. Vahzilok's minions made off with some of the serum! If Dr. Vahzilok modifies his virus to resist that drug, we may not be able to stop the epidemic!
Go to the sewers and incenerate every body you find
Now that Dr. Vahzilok has a sample of the antidote, it's only a matter of time before he can modify his virus and undo our work. However, I've analysed all the data, and I think I have a very viable candidate for the ground zero of this entire outbreak. I'd like you to go down to the sewers and incinerate very body you find. If you can manage this, Red Tomax, you'll put and end to Vahzilok's evil plague forever!
You must be careful, Red Tomax. Dr. Vahzilok himself knows about your involvement, and may try to stop you. You'll have to judge for yourself if you'll be strong enough to fight him, or if destroying the bodies is the better answer. Maybe we can put an end to this whole thing here and now, before the rest of the city gets infected.
The hackles on the back of your neck stand on end.
|Dr. Vahzilok [Arch-Villain]|
The insane leader of the Vahzilok comes acroos more like a religious zealot than an arch-fiend. Dr. Vahzilok continually proclaims his intention of overcomign death itself. In his twisted mind, the horrid reanimated corpes he creates are only stepping stones toward greater medical miracles.
Mission Complete: You have put an end to the Vahzilok plague.
So, you actually came face to face with Dr. Vahzilok himself? Few people have done that and lived to tell the tale. It's interesting that he seemed to have the same goal as you: eradicating the deadly plague he had caused. I guess it's possible that Vahzilok really does care about the harm he causes.
Souvenir: Hypodermic needle
A used needle may seem like a strange souvenir to some. but to you it's a reminder of one of your closest brushes with death. in an adventure you've come to think of as:
The Vahzilok Plague
It all started when your contact informed you of a deadly new Vahzilok disease. Eager to help. you went into the streets and the sewers to collect data on the diseased Vahzilok. But your heroism was not without its price. You learned that you had been infected with the deadly Vahzilok plague.
Your contact sent you to Professor St. John-Smythe for a cure. But when you arrived at the professor's labs. you found them under attack. You defeated the Vahzilok inside and saved the professor's colleagues. along with some of the precious serum they had concocted. Grateful for your help. one of the scientists used this needle to administer the cure.
Restored to full health. you ventured into the sewers once more. this time on a mission to incinerate the contaminated bodies. You came face to face with Dr. Vahzilok himself. but the mad doctor was not able to prevent you from ridding the world of his plague.
