Following some “off-the-street” guidance, the group searches for what they believe is a drug dealer named Dr. Candy. That search leads them to… a candy shop, and Dr. Candy himself. Kuku’s attempts to lure Dr. Candy into giving himself away don’t go as planned. (Invisible) Nixie creates a diversion for Sophia to sneak into the back rooms, then Al distracts him as Sophia, then Kuku, open a hidden door and descend into a massive drug laboratory.
Within said laboratory, they find a plethora of pills of all sorts, an entire drum of LSD, and terrarium featuring a very strange crystal – “like the platonic solid of some abstract mathematical concept.” Keeping with her collection of samples across the laboratory, Sophia gears up to take a sample of this as well… and goes completely comatose.
Kuku hauls Sophia back up into the store proper, where he and the others detain and confront Dr. Candy about his going-ons. He calmly explains that there’s nothing to ‘fix’ Sophia with – “she’s already fixed.” The crystal? One of the Many-Angled Ones, the dwellers at the borders of geometry. He admits he produces hallucinogens – natural, chemical, and even some home-brew compounds. He denies even knowing about Nero Drago, let alone making any drugs for him. For mass producing illegal substances, he’s a pretty amenable guy and even offers to analyze the vial compound if they get him a sample. Seemingly, beyond the drugs, he’s harmless and another dead end.
