Similarly the device works on six cards which are the keys to Scylla which whenplugged in their respective slots will reveal the secret of The Black Book. With the help of his teammembers Scofield has collected two out of four Scyllas from two different cities. Fortunately, the otherfour Scyllas are kept in a highly impregnable chamber. This is the first time Michael is breaking into aprison rather than breaking out of it. He is nervous about the plan and does not want any causality duringthe mission. So he has asked you for help.
