A perfect fusion of concepts vibrating in the Cold War-era collective unconscious. A receptacle. It is a receptacle - for dangerous energies to hone in on. And they did. We don't have the details, but when things started flying around the disk, it was transferred to us.

Casper Darling, FBC Presentation 11.15

The Floppy Disk (OOP5-KE) is an Object of Power contained by the Federal Bureau of Control. It is currently bound to Jesse Faden.

Description[]

The Floppy Disk is an eight-inch wide diskette capable of storing eighty kilobytes of data.

The Floppy Disk has the ability of telekinesis, able to lift and throw objects remotely. When the object is bound to a parautilitarian, they can wield this ability. While the Floppy Disk was originally only capable of throwing smaller objects short distances, when bound to Jesse Faden, its power increased enormously, capable of throwing objects as large as forklifts at extreme speeds.

History[]

The original Floppy Disk contained the launch codes for Soviet Union nuclear missiles reserved for use against a foreign power, and was kept at a military base. The CIA stole the disk in the 1970s and brought it to the United States, where an exact copy of it was then made, for some reason. When this copy of the disk suddenly began causing things to start flying around itself, a CIA informant notified the Federal Bureau of Control, and the Disk was requisitioned by agents the next day on March 11, 1974. The FBC experimented with the Floppy Disk and determined it to be an Object of Power, binding it to an unknown parautilitarian for experimental purposes. According to Casper Darling, the Disk became a receptacle for paranatural energies due to personifying archetypes of the Cold War-era collective unconscious.

At some point after the Floppy Disk was acquired, Director Broderick Northmoor, the most powerful parautilitarian known to the FBC at that time, was able to use it to send a bowling ball six yards through the air. This was considered a major accomplishment since before that point, FBC researchers had only succeeded in using the Floppy Disk to propel smaller objects like pencils and a cup a short distance.

During the Hiss invasion, the Floppy Disk escaped containment and was corrupted by the Hiss. It ended up in the Pneumatics area of the Executive Sector and demonstrated much more potency, flinging metal mail canisters much longer distances and with lethal force. It was found and cleansed by Jesse Faden, who bound to it and gained its ability: Launch.
