This character is involved in quests.


That Lucky Old Sun: PYTHON may be utilized to repair the wiring and bring the auxiliary generator online. A Science skill of 45 or a Poseidon Energy employee ID card (which can be found in a room next to a skeleton, behind an Average locked door) is required to activate it. After activation, it will move towards the generator, repair it, and return back to an inactive state beside the generator. If the generator is repaired, attempting to activate PYTHON will result in a message saying there is nothing left in the room to repair.
