He tricks the party into believing that he is Mizusawa Aru, but it is revealed he was one of the students who failed the second E-Test. Where before his personality mirrored that of Sumio, as time went on his group turned on him and was swallowed by Shadows during the test; this left only Jiro and himself, but Ryo was ambushed by Shadows right before escaping, leaving Jiro as the only survivor. While there, the Shadows corroded his good beliefs with selfish and cruel desires to escape with any means, it wasn't until Jiro. Enigma The antagonist and mysterious controller of the E-Test, he is represented by the symbol of a human skull with the jaw in the opposite direction, but it is revealed by Jiro that Enigma is indeed human with a noticeable mark on his right hand. Enigma’s identity is unveiled to be Kirio Imizuka, a childhood friend of Sumio, but the mantle is passed to Sumio himself to further Kirio’s goals. Yuta Kijima A teacher at Yuyami High School, Kijima's pleasant personality makes him popular with students, but it is all a'façade' that masks an insane obsession with developing the abilities of others by subjecting them to the E-Tests.
It is believed that he is Enigma, but Sumio discovers

Red Hat Linux
Red Hat Linux, created by the company Red Hat, was a used Linux distribution until its discontinuation in 2004. Early releases of Red Hat Linux were called Red Hat Commercial Linux. Red Hat published the first non-beta release in May 1995, it was the first Linux distribution to use the RPM Package Manager as its packaging format, over time has served as the starting point for several other distributions, such as Mandriva Linux and Yellow Dog Linux. In 2003, Red Hat discontinued the Red Hat Linux line in favor of Red Hat Enterprise Linux for enterprise environments. Fedora, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project and sponsored by Red Hat, is a free-of-cost alternative intended for home use. Red Hat Linux 9, the final release, hit its official end-of-life on April 30, 2004, although updates were published for it through 2006 by the Fedora Legacy project until that shut down in early 2007. Version 3.0.3 was one of the first Linux distributions to support Executable and Linkable Format instead of the older a.out format.
Red Hat Linux introduced a graphical installer called Anaconda developed by Ketan Bagal, intended to be easy to use for novices, which has since been adopted by some other Linux distributions. It introduced a built-in tool called Lokkit for configuring the firewall capabilities. In version 6 Red Hat moved to glibc 2.1, egcs-1.2, to the 2.2 kernel. It introduced Kudzu, a software library for automatic discovery and configuration of hardware. Version 7 was released in preparation for the 2.4 kernel, although the first release still used the stable 2.2 kernel. Glibc was updated to version 2.1.92, a beta of the upcoming version 2.2 and Red Hat used a patched version of GCC from CVS that they called "2.96". The decision to ship an unstable GCC version was due to GCC 2.95's bad performance on non-i386 platforms DEC Alpha. Newer GCCs had improved support for the C++ standard, which caused much of the existing code not to compile. In particular, the use of a non-released version of GCC caused some criticism, e.g. from Linus Torvalds' and The GCC Steering Committee.
GCC 2.96 failed to compile the Linux kernel, some other software used in Red Hat, due to stricter checks. It had an incompatible C++ ABI with other compilers; the distribution included a previous version of GCC for compiling the kernel, called "kgcc". As of Red Hat Linux 7.0, UTF-8 was enabled as the default character encoding for the system. This had little effect on English-speaking users, but enabled much easier internationalisation and seamless support for multiple languages, including ideographic, bi-directional and complex script languages along with European languages. However, this did cause some negative reactions among existing Western European users, whose legacy ISO-8859-based setups were broken by the change. Version 8.0 was the second to include the Bluecurve desktop theme. It used a common theme for GNOME-2 and KDE 3.0.2 desktops, as well as OpenOffice-1.0. KDE members did not appreciate the change, claiming that it was not in the best interests of KDE. Version 9 supported the Native POSIX Thread Library, ported to the 2.4 series kernels by Red Hat.
Red Hat Linux lacked many features due to possible patent problems. For example, MP3 support was disabled in both Rhythmbox and XMMS. MP3 support, could be installed afterwards, although royalties are required everywhere MP3 is patented. Support for Microsoft's NTFS file system was missing, but could be installed as well. Red Hat Linux was developed inside Red Hat, with the only feedback from users coming through bug reports and contributions to the included software packages – not contributions to the distribution as such; this was changed in late 2003. The new plan is to draw most of the codebase from Fedora when creating new Red Hat Enterprise Linux distributions. Fedora replaces the original Red Hat Linux download and retail version; the model is similar to the relationship between Netscape Communicator and Mozilla, or StarOffice and OpenOffice.org, although in this case the resulting commercial product is fully free software. Release dates were drawn from announcements on comp.os.linux.announce.
Version names are chosen as to be cognitively related to the prior release, yet not related in the same way as the release before that. The Fedora and Red Hat Projects were merged on September 22, 2003.

Enigma (Aeon Zen album)
Enigma is the third album by British progressive metal group Aeon Zen. Reviews were positive, with AltSounds calling the musicianship "stunning"; the album made some departures from the band's previous sounds, with Fireworks magazine noting that "Divinity and Eternal Snow have bursts of growly vocals on the heavier parts", but in spite of this, PROG Magazine still deemed there to be an "overwhelming sense of cohesion on this record". Metal Hammer seconded this opinion noting the way that "those theoretically disparate stylistic stands combine to create something that thrums with vitality and a laudable devotion to making music that impresses and resonates".

There are long bass and guitar notes that repeat. After about two minutes there are sounds of light breathing. Several phrases of gibberish are spoken for the rest of the song. In an interview with VH1, Chris Taylor Brown stated the picture of a man mowing a lawn was selected to show the choices and results an individual can make in life, he elaborated, "Everyone has this path they think they should take – it's the safe route. You go to college. We didn't want to do that. We wanted to say, it was an eerie picture.
So we thought it was cool to have on the front." AlbumSingles Chris Taylor Brown – lead vocals, rhythm guitar on "Echo" Simon Ormandy – lead guitar Pete Charell – bass Robin Diaz – drums
