After waiting for years for the right moment, I'm finally about to start a short Wraith the oblivion campaign (hopefully. Last time I started what I wanted to be a short campaign it lasted more than two years). There is a bit of murder-mistery woven in... anyway at this point, the hidden plot is something along this:
There is a neuroscientist researcher who discovered (unpublished yet) some kind of structure in the brain that would (unbeknownst to her) identify mages, maybe even with some kind of special pupillary reaction or something like that, which would permit identification of a Mage. Basically the theory would allow the creation of a Voigt-Kampff machine for Mages and all that would imply.
Now, I know very well Vampire and Werewolf, buy I played Mage the Ascension only briefly, and I'd like to know which faction would be most likely get to know this kind of research before it's published and be inclined to try to obliterate her (I need her to be burned in a car in the woods).
Or, if it's likely, which collaboration of factions would do this.
I'd prefer canon sources from the 20th Anniversary edition of Mage the Ascension but earlier editions would be fine as long as they do not directly contradict M20.
