One of the rooms in an undamaged building was illuminated as a scientist fervently shuffled inside, mixing vials and test tubs and injecting the resulting concoctions into many, many lab rats. His beard was long and unshaven and his workstation was completely disorganized, and empty pizza boxes and Chinese take out containers were spread along the floor. For all intents and purposes, the place was a fucking pigsty.

It's like the guy hadn't left the facilities since everyone evacuated weeks ago.

58664 knocks on the door(frame), ready to draw his weapon at a moment's notice.

"I need access to this facilities records on inter-dimensional power-sources. I can be out of here in a hurry if you help."

"Busy. Don't care. Get out."

Examining a slide underneath a light microscope, the man cursed and swung his arm in a wide arc, clearing the desk he was at and smashing his face against the desk, sobbing.

"Rest assured, this work is more important. Go bother some one else."

Looking up and wiping his tears and mucus on the sleeve of his lab coat, the scientist scooted his chair over a terrarium of lizards he kept on another table and jammed a syringe into one, the placed into another terrarium adjacent to it.

One yet another table were an array of test tubes. If they could be read from this distance, they'd read
"Rex", "Apa", "Cer", "Ple", "Pte", "Ste" and "Ank".

"Now, sir. Surely this research is important and needs to be protected, right? Results important for humanity and what-not? Then why not simply tell me what I need to know so that I may disappear from your life and never darken your doorstep again? Surely the 10 seconds it would take to tell me what I want to know is worth continued peace."

"I don't know anything about anything. Go bother one of the other scientists."

The reptile's scales began fusing and changing colors to a fleshy pink looking color. His widen as his moth fell agape. "Finally!" He exclaimed and stretched his arms into the air in a victorious pose.

He pulled a bottle from underneath one of the workstations. He'd smuggled this into the lab years ago and popped its top off, champagne frothing out of it's neck. He did a little jig as he did so.

"Hm, going to turn that purple lizard near the springs into a human I take it? Best of luck with that," Agent honestly offered.
He then set off to look for ways to access the facility's networks, rummaging through desks for left passwords and what-not.

"Yeah, I-"

He turned around the annoying man was gone. He took a swig out of the bottle and wiped his face on the sleeve not covered in snot. He ran off in search of the man, huffing and panting when he finally caught up. He braced his palms against his bent knees and began speaking.

"Wait, wait, how did you know he was purple and lizard-esque? Most people here have only seen his silhouette before they get freaked out and leave. Did you meet him? Do you know where he is?"

Engrossed in the attention-consuming activity of rummaging through the man's colleague's things, Agent addressed him in a distracted tone.

"Meet is a poor term. The man's not social, except with his birds. He's staying in a cave near the hot-springs. Be careful when you go there, he likes to chuck rocks. I'd suggest writing him a letter, but he doesn't seem to answer those. He's a very rude man."

"But, but, where? I've been up there and I lost his trail. You wrote him a letter and he didn't respond? he used to be so...ah, this is my fault."

He waddled over to the doorway and leaned against it, taking another swig of champagne. He took a knee and his head began bobbing-he was struggling to keep himself awake.

58664 raised an eyebrow.

He explained the cave's location as best he could.
But, fearing the man's faculties were affected, also wrote down the directions.

If the man seems like he's about to pass out, 58664 would put him to bed, and check in periodically as he continued to search for the password and a terminal (say, examine 2 or 3 rooms, check on doc, repeat)

The man took the directions with his free hand and promptly fell asleep, limbs sprawled out on the floor with the champagne bottle rolling away and spilling its contents onto the floor. No problem, Mr. Jan Itor would- wait.

Most of the rooms were still ajar as many people were in a hurry to leave, but nothing of interest would be found on the computers, for they were all password protected.

By the all-powerful right of hobo-law, 58664 claimed the abandoned facility as his and set about making a bed for himself with whatever he could find. Agent went to sleep after hours of searching thought the complex.

After a few hours and day break, the scientist awoke in confusion, clutching the crumpled note his hand. He nearly stumbled over the bottle as he made his way to a computer and tried to access it. No good. They must've switched it up on him. No worries.

After his eighth attempt (using the lyrics to Carly Rae Jespen's infectious pop single, which worked for whatever reason), he gained access. You know what they say about random passwords, right? Yeah.

Clicking around aimlessly and failing spectacularly at Tetris Battle, the scientist eventually stumbled upon some files...files about vampires and a weird horned monster. The wave of confusion that afflicted him since coming to began to fade when he read about the latter. Horned monsters...?

"Shit." he thought.

He opened up the file from the incident for the sake or reopening old wounds. The experiment turned Dr. Julius Avery and Dr. Agatha Laurence into strange reptilian monsters, and it was on his head. He took responsibility for ruining their lives and turning them into fugitives and wayward beasts. He clicked furiously and audibly insatiable for more information before snapping the keyboard in half over his knee and storming out the room.

Hobos have to be light sleepers: the threat of hobo-rape is very real and Agent wasn't the ugliest hobo in the world.

The sound of something snapping jerked him out of his reverie. He stalked towards the sound and saw a keyboard snapped in twain.

The filthy bastard had gotten access to a terminal then.

58664 searched the rooms for another keyboard, despite his age, he was handy with computers and knew how to change a keyboard.

He would read up on whatever files were open before searching for

>Dimensional power sources
>Induced super-human ability
>DarkForce
>Dark Dimension
>NegaVerse
>Applications of dimensional powers
etc.
He would then do his best to wipe his search history from the computer (though that did not guarantee a wipe from the server, it was the best he could do at the moment).

Simply scrolling down on the page that the man left the computer on would reveal that Dr. Avery and Ms. Laurence were indeed part of a program that could induce superpowers, though all too well. It appeared this project occurred several years ago, with the two people being given the designations of number "22529" and "22530", for whatever reason. It worked all too well and turned Agatha into a winged, draconic creature and Avery into...well, you saw Avery. Sounds like Lord Val and Mr. Jan Itor weren't completely full of shit about the presence of dinosaurs.

Eventually growing tired of being literally chained up and poked and prodded, the larger of the two broke free and liberated the female of the two, and they ran off. Based on the fact that Avery's only company was birds and he lived his life as the town's Cryptid while Laurence went off to join the Air Force to find meaning with her new life, things probably could've gone a lot better with them.

It appears there were filed on a "22531", "22532" and "22533", along with a "61293", "61294" and "61295". Whether or not they'd yield results would depend if the searcher continued looking into them. Presumably, the tens of thousands of other...whatevers weren't developed on site.

That reminds you, didn't that monster have a scar? Not much could hurt him, what could've made it?

58664 would continue to search through the files as long as it took!

The search would reveal further results on numbers 22531-3, raised from children, who themselves were raised from in vitro fertiliazation. There was no data on their parents and their whereabouts, and their was no data on the children's whereabouts.

Provided they were still alive, their ages by now would be roughly 26. In layman's terms, the three of them were genetically engineered for superpowers. The first was able to secrete an odorless and colorless gas from her skin that induced incredibly convincing hallucinations. The second had the curious ability to manipulate glass. The third was...very destructive, it would seem. They too departed years and years ago, the dates suggested they escaped in the same confusion that allowed the first two to escape.

The one codenamed "61293" was also codenamed the Behemoth. It was understood he derived his powers from contact with solid Earth, with the quality and composition of the Earth being a factor. Fire had an adverse affect on him. Plans were in progress to replicate his abilities but remained unfinished with the escape of subjects "61294" and "61295". Data on them was inconclusive, though a footnote stated one person claimed to "understand all he needed to know" about 61294. He said nothing about 61295.

Genetics labs typically don't investigate interdimensional travel because that doesn't make sense.

Agent 58664 types in locations of other research facilities, specifically those which might deal with finding new sources of energy/interdimensional travel.

He would then start preparing for the trip, and see about acquiring a gas-mask in town, either legitimately or through legal acquisition (A.K.A. as taking it and walking away. Hobo Law > Normal Law).

The computer gives several results because there are many genetics research labs in each state.
Pruning results would limit the search to 102 locations nationwide, far too many to investigate at the moment.

Interdimensional travel just doesn't to be a priority, except maybe for one lab in Pennsylvania. The computer is deliberately vague about that.

There would be some EOD gear in one of the closets Signal tore open.

58664. satisfied that he would not find the information he wanted on this system, left. He took some EOD gear from the facility, incorporating it into his normal gear while travelling, and hopped a train for Pennsylvania.

Unfortunately, he hopped the wrong train and woke up in Canada.

Mark blinked hard,

Guess it was nothing after all, mark thought to himself. It still gave him the hebeegeebees, He thought he had saw something furry with some kind of weapon.

"Your letting your imagination get the best of you" mark thought to himself and then he remembered that he can implode lungs.

Finishing his duties took a few hours, but mark doesn't stick arround for a change. By 6 he is using a public computer trying to get more information about his benefactor Employer. Not just corporate hand outs , but using the library or public access site to pull up news archives and the like.

Spoiler:
 

It appeared that Hot Springs Harbor Laboratories have been out of commission for sometime would reopen in a few months. For now, the area is restricted to everyone except government officials (of the local, state and federal flavors) and trespassers.

Meanwhile, the scientist who had developed his "cure" returned to town and stayed with an old couple to regain his strength, for he would need his mind and wits about him to find Dr. Avery, who he knew was still in the mountains. Agatha would be a bit more of a challenge, but this was his livelihood.
