Federal Bureau of Investigation

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is an agency of the United States Department of Justice that serves as both a federal criminal investigative body and an internal intelligence agency (counterintelligence). The FBI has investigative jurisdiction over violations of more than 200 categories of federal crime.

The FBI's headquarters, the J. Edgar Hoover Building, is located in Washington, D.C. Fifty-six field offices are located in major cities throughout the United States as well as over 400 resident agencies in smaller cities and towns across the country.

The Abraham Lincoln Building is home to the headquarters of Seattle.

Along with the main office in Seattle, there are 10 satellite offices, or “resident agencies,” in the area.

  • Bellingham
  • Everett
  • Olympia
  • Richland
  • Silverdale
  • Spokane
  • Tacoma
  • Vancouver
  • Wenatchee
  • Yakima

If the God-Machine could get away with not having
Command and Control Infrastructure in Seattle, it probably
would. For whatever reason, the God-Machine has chosen an
obvious place for this piece of Infrastructure. It could be a trap.
Seattle FBI share their office building with a few other
federal departments, but they have four floors to themselves
and a bank of secure elevators. Pulling the emergency
phone and holding the first and fourth floor buttons sends
the elevator to an extradimensional middle floor. On that
expanse, LEDs flicker on and off, unseen gears whir, speakers
emit intermittent beeps and modem shrieks, and fiberglass
cabling flashes red and blue while hanging from the ceiling
like vines in the jungle. Strange artifacts rest on pedestals,
hang on walls or from the ceiling, lie on the floor, or simply
hover every few yards. Most of them are being actively read or
referenced by an optical fiberglass lead, which can be trailed
to a wraparound headset worn by a human dressed in the
fashion of the 1920s, when human computers were going
out of fashion. Each human is writing esoteric calculations in
pencil on an endless stream of paper.
Getting in isn’t easy, given the FBI and the difficulty of
digging up how to manipulate the elevator. Getting out is even
harder, because there are no windows and, once a person steps off it, no elevator either.
