"Sidewalk in New York City" - The FrameworkSkills:
Enhanced sense - Smell; Jack of all (science)
Agent Reed had barely answered their questions and people started doing stuff. It all sort of just broke into chaos. Niah ducked and was covering her ears already when Z told them to cover their ears, and she was thankful she was. Earth was churning and Z was screaming and bullets were flying. It might be a simulation, but it felt all too real. When the guards were down in the front, Niah gave a nervous laugh "Well that answers my question."
Niah looked up at the building trying to see if maybe someone was watching from a window. As she looked up everything went black, was it a flaw in the framework? She tried to contain the panic and since no one else was reacting she had a feeling it was something with her specifically. Especially since as everything was dark, she could smell the churned Earth and pick out the difference between the cement and asphalt. She even was picking up the GSR, and the individual metals in it. On top of that, it was like she was swimming in the smells of everyone's soaps, perfumes, and blood.
A Channel, that had to be Tinley. She could smell Dove soap, there were a couple sources for that but without sight, she couldn't tell who it belonged to. Blue Seduction, mixed with various other incense, that was Z she would know that even without the strangely enhanced sense of smell. There was also a strong smell of ozone, Niah had a strong feeling that was coming from Agent Sparks. There was some irony there.
Ah, it made sense. Her hearing when she first woke up and now smell, but she was blind in exchange. What had she lost for the hearing? Then she remembered the taste in her mouth and how it hadn't been there at first. "I have enhanced senses, or at least I can enhance them."
At will? She took a deep breath and let the sense go, vision returning to her. She was thankful that she was no longer being assaulted by smells, though it felt like some of them were still stuck in her nose, though that just might have been the dust from Agent Novikova's Earth manipulation. "Also a bit of a toxicology nerd so I'll see what I can do about the virus, however, I am not an epidemiologist."
Not that she was an actual medical professional or an immunologist but she didn't think anyone in the group was either.
