Known Symptoms of 4193 include: visual manifestations, paranoia, hallucinations, physical contact, communication with unknown specimens, violent auditory response, loss of location, suicidal tendencies, disappearance of the holder of 4193, and or death.

Class D test subject Interview:
Dr.[REDACTED]: Hello D-152, how you feeling today? It seems like your shakes have subsided.

D-152: I’m, I’m okay. Still seeing his face though. When did you say this will end? I can’t sleep, I really can’t.

Dr.[REDACTED]: Soon, soon, most of they reports say it should clear up in a week or two. I’ll up the dosage and give you more time to rest in-between the studies. What face are you seeing again?

D-152: I’ve told you, over and over. It’s D-151 dammit! It was [REDACTED] f*&$ing face! He told me not to use that thing I knew it I knew it!

Dr.[REDACTED]: Let's stick to formal titles ok D-152? Are you sure it was him? When did he say not to use 4193?

D-152: In the testing facility, it was so dark but when I shined the light I saw his jumpsuit. He was only there for a second but he screamed at me ‘Don’t use the flashlight’ but I heard noises so I ran.

Dr.[REDACTED]: You do know he hasn’t been seen since his last trial with 4193? Did anything seem amiss with D-151?

D-152: I know I know! It was him I swear. He seemed pale and scared, I shined the light but all I could see was what I put the light on. It was dark so I’m not too sure but I never saw his legs, when I started running the light was all over the place but I saw. Things.

Dr.[REDACTED]: What were those things D-152?

D-152: No response.

Dr.[REDACTED]: Please D-152, explain.

D-152: A thing, Pale, it was on all fours. It seemed human, I think. It just dashed away.

Dr[REDACTED]: Thank you D-152, I think we should stop here. Don’t forget to take your medicine at the pharmacy and try to sleep well. I’ll send for security when we begin the next interview.

Addendum-3: The reports of a quadruped human-like creature have been more current in recent reports. Concentration on this creature is mandatory for future experiments.

Addendum-4: D-152 has been reported missing.
