The Control Voice: The search for truth is a noble venture. But what happens when that search becomes so obsessive that we no longer find truth but instead... create it?

A reporter goes on the trail of a mysterious man who is zapping random people with a ray and seemingly reducing them to ash.

The Control Voice: Nothing happens by chance. Life has a design all its own. For one person's sacrifice can be another's... salvation.

  • Good All Along: The man with the ray gun and his faction.
  • Professional Killer: Subverted. Carter Jones believes that the strange man who has been causing people to disappear, leaving only a pile of purple ash in their wake, is an alien hitman.

The purple ash is a byproduct of the teleportion process.

How well does it match the trope?
