Summary: Consuming his prey in a New York alley, a cannibalistic shapeshifter becomes aware of a new and terrifying threat to the city. For once it isn't him.
Spoiler Warning: Major spoilers for Prototype 1 and Rings of the Master.
Notes: Crossing Prototype with The Vulture from Jack L. Chalker's "Rings of the Master" series (1987), purely because Mercer and Vulture are very similar. They both shapeshift, they both gain memories by eating people. Mercer's the better combatant, Vulture's the better infiltrator. Mercer rarely talks, Vulture doesn't like silence. Blackwatch would have trouble handling something that can emulate DNA perfectly and was designed to fool scanners and science a lot more advanced than theirs.
(Four segments written and four more planned. This isn't a long story.)
