OriginEdit

Daniel Ellsberg was a military analyst who released to the public a series of top-secret papers from the Pentagon to several large newspapers. They detailed the escalation of the fighting during the Vietnam War, to which the public was unbeknownst.

Ellsberg was originally charged with conspiracy, espionage and theft of government property, but the charges were later dropped when it was discovered that discrediting Ellsberg was one part of the illegal activities committed by Richard Nixon and his staff.

EffectsEdit

Can create a copy of any classified or top secret document - if no documents exist, it will print out any available information it can find. It is activated when the name of a person, project, department or codename is written down on a piece of paper and the copy button is pressed.

If the user senses any corruption by those who wrote or are mentioned in the documents, they will try to expose said scandals to the media. They will take in no account of the possible backlash and harm it will cause them in the future.
