The Source is the founder and leader of the Abyss investigation.
All research and data collected by investigators is passed onto the Source who determines a course of action accordingly. Any high-level decisions must be approved by the Source only.
In the event of any symptoms or aberrations suspected as a result of participating in the Abyss, investigators are advised to seek the Source for help and further instructions.Only the Source can offer a moderate level of protection and has set a very strict set of rules for investigators to follow in order to be eligible for security.
It is important that investigators do not try to determine the unknown identity(s) of the Source, doing so will lead to inevitable infiltration, surveillance and swift punishment.
