- —Washington revealing the Sarcophagus
This high level asset, codenamed the "Sarcophagus," is an object first seen in it's titular episode The Sarcophagus. Though another can be seen at the Bjørdnal Cryogenics Research Facility in The Twins, where it was stated by the Director to have been created. It served as the mission objective to Project Freelancer part-way through Season 9.
Role in PlotEdit
The data recovered by South was vital to pinpointing its location. In Planning the Heist, the Freelancers went over their plans to retrieve it from the Insurrection, who were previously in possession of it for unknown reasons. The Freelancers succeeded in securing it and the briefcase containing the code needed to open it. Later, in Labor Pains, the Sarcophagus can be seen being taken out of the room, shortly after Delta's creation, making a growling noise as it leaves. When the A.I. fragments muttered the word "Allison" in Three's a Crowd, the Sarcophagus seemed to growl and snarl like a caged animal from within, frightening the soldiers guarding it. In the episode Happy Birthday, it was revealed that a Huragok/Engineer is contained inside the Sarcophagus, hence the Engineer symbols on it.
