Inside the research center's server, Sarah is able to create an account for herself (default password), add herself to the employee database (security patches never installed), issue herself a security badge (AI image), and start a monthly paycheck (using a military grade cracking tool).
She is about to clean up all traces and exit when Pantheon messages:
"That code you used to open payroll was a vibe."
Was she caught? Sarah panics but really doesn't want to wipe out everything before she starts getting paid.
"You got a better one?" she shoots back.
A window pops up with the pass phrase to her hot wallet. Sarah knows immediately this guy is scary good.
