Can we just take a moment to appreciate that gorgeous background? Tricia has really outdone herself. It looks like a photograph!

I wouldn't call it photorealistic, but it does look very nice.

Wait, why turn into two what appears to be extremely skinny kids (teenagers? young adults? bleh, I can't identify age very well)? Does Malloy think they'll scare them off?

@Aslandus: This person is obviously upset and anyone unfamiliar would only rattle them further. Emily and Quantum are obviously friends or acquaintances they can feel calm around; how diabolically clever to pose as those one trusts! 3:) (Whether either person really existed in the first place, I can't say.)

BTW, Emily's tattoo means Aqua Regia, or nitro-hydrochloric acid; while neither nitric nor hydrochloric acid alone can dissolve gold, the two can do so in concert, each performing a different task. I read that to mean the "Emily" disguise is half of a team with "Quantum" that accomplishes what neither could alone.
