Okay, so, what? Why did they feel the need to escape a protection team? Were they actually being held captive? For what reason?
I know we have next to no information but this is so random. It was like 15 years ago, but could this have anything to do with their strange 2nd album? It’s the only other mention of him on Omnipedia that I can find, so maybe I’m just grasping at straws.
I’m also full of questions and concern regarding Efrim’s disappearance. Escaping your own protection team? Not kidnapping or disappearing but escaping.
Omni has one other mention of Efrim outside of their music/Polysemic Sortilege; they founded a nanobiotech company called Debtera Pharma. Debtera was acquired by Zhupao in 2033 - the same year that Efrim’s bandmate died and they released that utterly bizarre second solo album (after giving Xu an unedited pre-release copy.)
Now Xu has been murdered and the next day Efrim goes missing…I don’t know whether Efrim’s disappearance is directly related to that album, but I’d still give a lot to know how Xu’s copy is different from the final release.
