“Say your name again?” asked Juggernaut. 

“Eno,” came the reply with an accent. The man appears to be in 

late sixties; he made a short pony tail in the back and left the grey 

beard hanging loose. His accent was neither American nor British, some 

kind of unknown European but clearly he can communicate in English,
