<<<BEGIN TRANSCRIPT. REF RECORDING #ZZ9PZA>>
Doctor Grannus: She was brought here, after the Central Hospital was overrun with victims of the Verdant Academy incident. She was a terminal patient, she had only maybe 6 months, if that. We don't know who her parents are, or were. All attempts at finding that information I might add have been quashed by the government and the military following the Verdant Academy incident...
Investigator: That incident is still under investigation and is classified. Please tell me now, about her time here. You say she arrived after the Verdant Academy incident, so she has been here for three, four weeks then?
Doctor Grannus: Yes, that sounds about right. She had been a terminal patient at Central, and was transfered here, to free up space. We've been trying to ration our supplies of gel, so she was getting about half the treatment she should have been getting for a person in her condition. She was, nonetheless cheerful, selfless and often asked if it would be okay for us to reduce her treatment a bit more, just so other children in the ward might have a better chance. Of course, we really couldn't do that, and keep to our medical ethics...of course, if we could get some more gel supplies here, it would not have been an issue. But again,the government is not doing much in that regard...
Investigator: Please continue, how was Miss Arausio's demeanor? How did she act?
Doctor Grannus: She was, as I said, very selfless. She often read to the other children in the ward. She would often hear someone crying, and go and comfort them. She was affectionately referred to as "The Littlest Nurse" by some of the staff. They all adored her.
Investigator: Did she do or say anything suspicious? Could you see if maybe she had any particularly strange or nonconformist behavior?
Doctor Grannus: Of course not. She was a normal teenager, a young woman who seemed to accept her condition. She was always calm, and did not seem like the type to engage in dangerous or risky behavior. Despite what you government types think, or are not sharing...she was someone I would have been proud to call my own daughter.
Investigator: We're simply trying to understand the situation. Your cooperation is essential in this regard. Tell me about the events of yesterday.
Doctor Grannus: Unbeknown to me, or my Charge Nurse, it seems that Danu convinced the floor nurses to stop treating her, at her request so as not to waste gel supplies on her. She knew she was dying, and in the words of one of our nurses..."wanted the other children on the ward to have a fighting chance". This has been going on for a week, evidentially. Yesterday, around mealtime, Danu was reading to one of the smaller children when she suddenly just collapsed.
Investigator: Is that normal in these cases?
Doctor Grannus: It's not unusual. Many patients with the type of gel defeciency experienced by Danu tend to pass during their sleep. It's usually imperceptible until they are gone. It's one of the kindest ways to go really.
