The Hub was dark, quiet and still.

Actually, it wasn't, because the Hub was never dark: there was always a screen on, its dull neon glow flickering as something was processed or recorded or monitored. Likewise the Hub was never still or silent. Myfanwy ruled the roost when its human occupants were elsewhere; wheeling about the lofty expanses, occasionally breaking her glide with a great leathery flap of wings or a hoarse piercing shriek. There was the occasional trickle of water running down the Rift tower from the fountain on the Plass, dripping into one of the pools at the foot of the tower. Light reflected off the water, bouncing and casting shadows around the Hub, turning all the weird technology into shaded monsters.

Yet, despite all of this, the Hub was comparatively dark, quiet and still.

In one of the many shaded corners, a computer screen flickered to life and a red flashing icon appeared.

But other than that brief flare of life…the Hub was abandoned.
