The Beast Tower
Another one of Crash’s spirit allies, Cipher was the spirit apparently dispatched—in the event of Crash’s untimely demise—to sabotage the cable and cell providers in the area surrounding Thompson Falls. The precise reason for this “emergency protocol,” as it was described, has not been ascertained.
When the pack encountered Cipher, his programming seemed to be corrupted; he spoke alternately in third- and first-person, and seemed unable to give simple or logical answers to even the most basic questions. Upon being offered chiminage, the strange spirit became a little less strange, and agreed to help the pack by discontinuing the protocol.
Once it was finished with its task, Cipher disappeared from the Tower, and has not been seen since.
