Considering I kinda screwed up on where to post new chapters for this, I'm making a new thread. In a way, TLB is a new series, but it's also heavily joined to Season 3, hence why it's continued on the same FF.net story. Future chapters will be posted in this thread so make sure it's in your participated list.
There will be an undetermined amount of POVs introduced in this mini-series, the first of which is Freya.
Unlike ITF S1-3, I'm unsure how long this series might go, or how many POVs there might be. It's much more 'live' than ITF was.
At the start they only wanted people who were experienced and could contribute. While they were desperate for Silas's expertise, they weren't willing to accommodate his family at that time. Sanctum as we saw it in Ep2 was a lot more desperate and its strict guidelines on who to let in had already started to crumble.
Silas thought he'd be in and out of Sanctum in a month at the longest, so he left his family somewhere he 'knew' they would be safe (likely with his original group or something which was composed of family and friends). However, when things at Sanctum dragged on he repressed the fact he even had a family so he didn't find himself wondering whether or not they were alive every minute of every day. That's why he only makes reference to them just before he dies in Season 3; he's stopped repressing them.
Also his whole goal with Vince's group was "kill them all so I can go find Freya without worrying that Vince's group will ruin things again." He just didn't know it.
Not 100% satisfied with this chapter, but it did what it needed to do. I had trouble thinking of a way Silas could get the general location of the mall without killing Hector. I just settled on him 'crippling' Hector and leaving him to die, and Hector pretending the injury was worse than it actually was.
