The institute is a large research station around a stellar sized black hole while they are mostly peaceful they do have many deadly weapons such as particle cannons relativistic rail guns and kugelblitz lasers. The beings that live in the institute are mostly cybernetic with some evolved biological parts. They can survive massive blows and counter back these people are not something you want to face in one on one combat. They do not have to breath air they can move faster than you they are stronger than you i repeat do not engage them.
In a chamber in the higher areas of the station their is an artifact it is said to quite literally paint objects into existence. While its mostly used for art purposes it can prove to be a deadly weapon... Your job is to grab it then run as i stated before engaging in direct combat is a bad idea.
