Be prepared to say hello to one of our most dedicated members of the EPF. Leader of the communications systems on the island, this hard-working agent strives to deliver his duties…on time, of course! His choice of clothing is somewhat admirable and frantic which makes him unique and totally different to every other agent on the team…in a good way, of course! Have you met him yet? I am sure you have even if you are not an EPF agent because this penguin loves to blow our cover all the time…in the most convenient way possible…of course? Yeah, you’ve met him. Well, say hello to this guy!
His name is Rookie. Why is he called Rookie? I don’t know… Alright! Rookie is someone you need to avoid. If you are on the verge of discovering something epic about the tipping of the iceberg, Rookie will destroy it somehow. It is something we, EPF agents, will never be able to grasp or understand. His name says it all, really. Technically, Rookie is an agent but his name classes himself as someone a bit lower on the hierarchy. Basically, Rookie is not yet a skilful agent but he has been with the EPF since the beginning of its rise. Way back when the PSA was established, Rookie was there. For all of these years, he has had numerous opportunities to develop his agent training but he has not progressed at all. If anything, he has become more of a rookie than when we first met him. So why has no one acknowledged this? Or have they?
Welcome back to the 26th Island Discussion where we will be discussing the significance of this wacky agent. There are several questions orbiting my mind such as: ‘Why does Rookie exist?’, ‘What is the point?’, ‘Who recruited Rookie?’, ‘Why is he still with us?’. Hopefully, by the end of this discussion, we will be able to uncover some of Rookie’s silhouette until we finally get to know this character and his status. I bet you all have similar questions to mine; one of the island’s biggest mysteries have been in front of us for a long time, yet we never get the time to talk about it. Luckily, this discussion should clear up those brainstorms and create new ones as we dive deeper into Rookie.
To begin with, it would be sensible to unlock Rookie’s beginning so we can work through his life chronologically. So in other words, where did Rookie come from and how did he end up as a member of the PSA. Well, there could have been a number of scenarios that determined Rookie’s position on the team. It gets even more complicated especially when he is a penguin with no knowledge and nothing useful to offer other than his rock collection or his rubber ducky. I mean, what is that all about?
So the first time we met Rookie was during the PSA Mission #3: Case of the Missing Coins. Rookie was the one we met at the vault in the Gift Shop. In fact, he told us that he was new to the team which tells us that he is actually a new recruit with a right to mess up with some stuff. As a matter of fact, Rookie forgot the combination to hack into the vault which is where his story of mistakes began. Silly Rookie…
