Find Molly and ask about the malfunctioning robots

πŸ“ Jarilo-VI Silvermane Guard Restricted Zone

You receive a notification from the Belobog Silvermane Guard Restricted Zone: There are malfunctioning robots roaming around the zone, which might be dangerous.
This is not your business... But as someone helpful, you should find Molly and ask about the details.

Researcher
Well... Um... relax...
Molly
Molly
So? What did you do with those defective robots?
Researcher
Researcher
Ahem... well...
Molly
Molly
Come on! What are you squirming around for?
Researcher
Researcher
The worker in charge of arms management forgot to report the defective units to the commanding officer...
Researcher
Researcher
Those robots may have already been deployed to the restricted zone.
Molly
Molly
WHAT!?
Researcher
Researcher
Don't get angry! I have written a report of this incident and submitted it to management...We just need to wait for them to send someone to deal with it!
Researcher
Researcher
But you know what our approval system is like... Until then, we can't really do anything.
Molly
Molly
We can't just wait here and do nothing! There will be big trouble if we don't deal with this now! How can you just sit around so calmly!?
Researcher
Researcher
You are right... But we are just small potatoes. There is no way we can deal with those crazy robots...
Molly
Molly
Argh! This makes me so angry... Where are the Garrison people? They are to blame for the restricted zone receiving this batch of subpar garbage since they didn't do enough quality control! Shouldn't those people come forward and provide us an explanation?
Researcher
Researcher
Well... I've contacted them but no matter what I say, they just blame it on the Technology Division, saying that they're unreliable and the Garrison had nothing to do with it. Which means we have to deal with it ourselves...
Molly
Molly
That's ridiculous! How can they shirk their responsibility like that?
Options
Do you need a hand?
(Ignore their quarrel)
Molly
Molly
Huh? Which department are you from?
Options
We met in the city before...
A kindhearted passerby.
Molly
Molly
We did? I don't remember you at all.
Molly
Molly
Humph! A kindhearted passerby in this place? I doubt it.
Molly
Molly
Wait! You are... aren't you the "Outsider" on the warrant that the Architects were so desperate to apprehend not so long ago?
Molly
Molly
But this is a military restricted zone, and not even a snow mouse is supposed to be able to enter... How did you manage to get in?
Molly
Molly
Oh, whatever! If you can put up a fight against the Silvermane Guards, those crazy robots must just be a piece of cake for you, right?
Molly
Molly
Listen! I have something very urgent that I need your help with. It's a matter of life and death!
Options
You trust me?
Saving people is my passion.
Molly
Molly
What else can I do? Look at these guys. All of them are useless scrubs!
Researcher
Researcher
That's a bit harsh...
Molly
Molly
Easier said than done! I hope you're really that reliable.
Molly
Molly
Let me give you a rundown first... So, last month, the Garrison ordered a batch of guardbots. And at the time, the manufacturing team was so overstretched that there was no other option but to outsource some workloads to a private manufacturer in the city.
Molly
Molly
And it turns out that this batch of robots is simply subpar, and there is a real danger that they could go out of control.
Molly
Molly
I guess you've already heard what happened afterwards, so I'll say no more. In short, I hope you can deal with those out of control robots as soon as possible and take back their "Core Modules"!
Molly
Molly
I don't care how you do it... Electromagnetic interference, remote control, or simply smashing them to pieces! They are useless anyway...
Molly
Molly
I've marked the general location of those robots. Hurry up! We don't have much time left!

Shocked Silvermane Guard
Shocked Silvermane Guard
What's wrong with this robot? It doesn't recognize us?
Worried Silvermane Guard
Worried Silvermane Guard
I have no idea! It seems to be a new robot from the Garrison... If we dismantle it like this without telling the Captain, will we get into any trouble?
Options
It's a faulty robot. Let me handle it.
You did this?
Shocked Silvermane Guard
Shocked Silvermane Guard
Uh, aren't they brand-new? How come... Is it because the Garrison didn't do proper quality control?
Worried Silvermane Guard
Worried Silvermane Guard
Just leave it be... It's not our job to pursue this matter.
Shocked Silvermane Guard
Shocked Silvermane Guard
Yeah! We were standing here chatting and the robot suddenly charged over!
Worried Silvermane Guard
Worried Silvermane Guard
The only thing I could do at the time was to dismantle it... I've never had a robot charge me like that before. It was quite the fright.
Worried Silvermane Guard
Worried Silvermane Guard
Are you here to retrieve it? We have already removed the Core Module. Please look into this matter and don't let this happen again! It was so scary...
+ Core Module x 1

Report to Molly

Molly from the Technology Division is angry with her colleagues. You learn from her that a group of dangerous malfunctioning robots is wandering around in the restricted zone, which are prone to harming people.
You have retrieved all the "Core Modules." Bring them back to Molly.
Pela
Pela
We should take a moment to think this through β€” who is involved in the quality control process for this outsourcing project? Tell me all the names you can think of.
Researcher
Researcher
Mβ€”Miss Sergeynia, I am just a researcher here, I don't know as much as you think...
Pela
Pela
Sigh... Firstly, my last name is Sergeyevna. Secondly, you don't have to patronize me. Just call me Pela. I don't care if you call me "Officer" or not.
Pela
Pela
I only care about handling this incident properly and efficiently, and that depends on whether you can give me useful information. Don't waste our time!
Researcher
Researcher
Eh... I think... Um...
Options
Oh...What happened here?
I'm all done! Where is Molly?
Missss~ Pelaaaa~!
Researcher
Researcher
Oh... You are here! Well, just wait a moment...
Pela
Pela
Looks like you're keeping quite a lot of things from me... like this {M#gentleman}{F#lady} here who suddenly appeared in the military restricted zone...
Researcher
Researcher
Oh... You are here! Well... Molly...
Pela
Pela
Looks like you're keeping quite a lot of things from me... like this {M#gentleman}{F#lady} here who suddenly appeared in the military restricted zone... also that Molly...
Pela
Pela
Please don't call my name like that...
Pela
Pela
Why are you here? This is strange...
Pela
Pela
How come it's you again...?
Pela
Pela
Gepard did tell me not to make things difficult for the "outsider"... but the Silvermane Guard Restricted Zone isn't just somewhere I can let you hang around.
Options
I am here to deal with those defective robots.
I just did what a good citizen would do...
Pela
Pela
Then this time you can't just say it's none of your business... Be honest and tell me the truth!
Pela
Pela
Hey... But you do know that it's still illegal for a good citizen to enter the military restricted zone, right?
Pela
Pela
However, since you are here... you must have something to do with this. Be honest and tell me the truth!
System
System
Under Pela's interrogation, you confessed everything...
Pela
Pela
Ah... I understand now. It is more or less as I surmised... Since Miss Molly and you are involved in this incident, then everything makes sense now.
Pela
Pela
As to those "Core Modules"... hand them to me first.
- Core Module x 3

Pela
Pela
Alright, Mr. Researcher... Do you want to comment on this? Your statement seems to be a little bit different from this {M#gentleman}{F#lady}'s.
Researcher
Researcher
Well... I was just afraid you'd make Molly a suspect. She can be a bit impatient at times, but I assure you that this incident has nothing to do with her! Please just spare me, Captain...
Pela
Pela
Don't worry, you and Molly will be fine. Just don't play silly games with me when it happens again in the future. Remember what I said? Don't waste my time!
Researcher
Researcher
Oh... Thank you... thank you so much Captain Sergekevna!
Options
Her name is Pelageya Sergey...
So what are you going to do next?
Pela
Pela
...Well, whatever. I've gotten used to it.
Pela
Pela
Even though I really want to hold you responsible for your trespassing into the military zone, I will however let it slide this time, since Serval vouched for your ability and character. I would also like to ask you to help me deal with the incident, which is a chance for you to make up for your mistakes.
Pela
Pela
Long story short, this robot incident is just one chapter in my ongoing investigation. The stakes here are very high, and Miss Molly may have ruffled some feathers.
Pela
Pela
So... she might be in danger now...
Pela
Pela
I am going to ask you one last question: Do you know where Molly is?
Researcher
Researcher
Well... There seemed to be a family emergency, so she ran back to check on them. It was a Silvermane Guard from the Garrison who came to send her the message. I don't know what they talked about, but she looked dreadful afterwards.
Researcher
Researcher
I think... you can go to the Administrative District. There is an apartment building next to the abandoned business street. I think Molly is there.
Pela
Pela
...I guess I was right. She's in trouble.
Pela
Pela
I'll go first. Please follow me as soon as possible.

Look for Molly in Belobog Administrative District

πŸ“ Jarilo-VI Administrative District

When you return, you find Pela taking Molly's place. After talking to her, you learn that Pela is investigating a corruption case related to those defective robots, and Molly is likely to be in danger.
Molly's colleagues tell you her address, where you might find her.
Molly

Pela
You must be Molly from the Technology Division. How are things going?
Molly
Molly
Leave me alone! So annoying!
Molly
Molly
Huh? Oh, you're Officer Pela... I'm sorry, Iβ€”I'm in the middle of an emergency... I am very sorry!
Molly
Molly
Ah, you're here as well, I see... Have those defective robots been dealt with?
Options
All done. No one was hurt.
Did anyone in your family get hurt?
Molly
Molly
That's good...
Molly
Molly
No, wait. Why should it have anything to do with me? All I ended up doing was just cleaning up the mess left behind by those guys... Why should I worry so much for them? It's not like it's my fault!
Options
Did anyone in your family get hurt?
Molly
Molly
... Forget it. Why do I care whether they live or die?
Molly
Molly
Family? Oh, is this what you two are here for? Fortunately, I live alone, and no one else got hurt.
Molly
Molly
I was waiting for your update at the arsenal just now, and those people came to me. They said that I went too far this time, so they gave me a warning... I realized something was wrong, so I ran home as fast as I could β€”

By the time I got home, the whole house had been turned upside down by them! All the valuables, and even the worthless stuff are gone... Everything. Gone. They took everything!
Molly

But I can't do anything about it! Am I supposed to just let them get away with it... Can't anyone hold them accountable for their actions?

Why... I was just doing my job! Why do I have to be humiliated? What did I do wrong!?
