Jay Barnes is a dead investigator found in one of the Ultra-Luxe hotel rooms in 2281.


Hired by an unknown third-party to investigate the disappearance of a bride at the Ultra-Luxe, private detective Jay Barnes had rented a room by the White Glove Society member Mortimer, to stay in during the investigation. He planned to meet a contact in the hotel's steam room located in the bathhouse, around 4 o'clock. The informant had information regarding the White Gloves' potential return to cannibalism.

Unaware that Mortimer has hired an assassin to silence any he suspects knows of, or is plotting against his movement to return his organization back to their old ways, Jay failed to report for the meeting. He is found mysteriously dead in his hotel room - the scene of a brutal attack.
