#Aeons_Courtyard 17

[Obfuscated] Cian creeps through the halls, as per his nightly routine. Unlike normal, however, he doesn’t seem to be trying to scare to ghouls or eavesdrop on conversation. Instead he is lost in thought, wandering absently through the halls almost in a fugue.

[Obfuscated] Cian begins to wander in the general direction that Deveraux is exploring, subconsciously attracted by the noise. He has yet to actually notice Deveraux’s presence, however, as he is distracted by inner dialogue. This hunt for the creature in the woods has him excited, but also a bit nervous. It will be the first time he will meet a Camarilla vampire, and on top of that,

[Obfuscated] Cian he will be under Zaluut’s close scrutiny for a few nights.

 

#Aeons_Courtyard 16

[Obfuscated] Deveraux is wandering around observing from the cover of Obfuscate. He’s sure someone will spot him eventually, but for now he’s just wandering about and seeing what he can see.

<Zaluut> is standing out near to the hedge maze, on one of the platforms that overlooks it. He seems to be watching something within the maze quietly.

[Obfuscated] Deveraux will move over toward Zaluut and see if he can catch a glimpse of what he’s watching.

Anastasia strides into the courtyard, her eyes sweeping over her environment in a way she hoped was nonchallant and predatory, but might betray some of the anxiousness she feels. First impressions being important, she’s dyed some of her hair blue, done it up in a striking style then adorned her body in tight patent leather, studs and bullets.

#Aeons_Chantry 15

Aaron pulls up at the Overgrowth Chantry and waits for the others before getting out of the car.

Kayn pulls up shortly, closing and locking his car, then removing a pair of sunglasses as he peers up at the place and it’s copious amount of vegetation. “Seems.. cozy?”

φCadeφ comes yawning down the stairs, his glasses sitting on top of his head as he rubs his eyes with one hand. The other is holding the tome he has been studying as well as his laptop. He shuffles sleepily into the kitchen and makes himself some coffee. After thoroughly sugar and milking it up he heads back out to one of the common rooms and sits down on a couch and

settles in for a study session.

#Aeons_Daylight 4

Elena sits on the bridge over the koi pond in the park between the office buildings. The dangles her feet in the water lightly, making little ripples.

Aaron walks into the park to clear his head and perhaps get some perspective on this whole spider business. He walks the little trails for a few moments before spying Elena on the bridge. “Hey. How’s it going?”

Elena looks over and then nods to Aaron, feet till just swinging lightly into the water. “Hello. It is going alright. Just enjoying the scenery.”

 

Aaron looks at her for a moment and smiles, nodding. “Yeah. I needed to clear my head a bit. I’m Aaron. I believe you have met my girlfriend, Jesse. You have… Distinctive features. So sorry I approached you so.”

Elena tilts her head as she studies Aaron, and then nods. “No problem. And I know her, yes. So then you are the father of the child she was expecting?”

Aaron nods and then leans against the railing of the bridge as he talks to Elena. “Yeah. She was a little miffed at me for not being forthcoming on the whole kinfolk thing. But I think she will get over it. I hope.”

Elena tilts her head and then looks toward the water, watching the fish. “It can be hard for those that do not understand. That aren’t born that way themselves.”

Aaron nods. “That is true, but Mages have a tendency to be open minded. And luckily the child will have very little Rage to deal with.”

Elena doesn’t look up from the fish in the little koi pond and nods. “Yes, that will make the first change easier for him when it is time. So are they doing well then?”

Aaron nods and gives a brief look about the park before pushing off the handrail and standing straight again. “Yeah. Jesse will bring him by the aquarium soon so you can see, I am sure.”

Elena smiles and runs her flat foot across the top of the water, playing with the fish. “I would like that a lot. Oh, that reminds me… Jonas and I found something in the woods that has an electronic lock we could use help with. So you might ask the Mages or one of the Shifters at your home.”

Aaron thinks for a moment and frowns, but nods. “A couple of them might be able to do it. But I doubt Ethan of Daedalus would have any clue what to do with electronics. Part of my current trouble. We seem to have an overgrowing nest of weavers and the little bastards are wreaking havoc in anything they get into. Trying to rehome them or something. But they wont listen to me.”

Elena makes a face at the mention of the weavers, wrinkling up her nose. “I don’t know much about them. They don’t usually mix well with water.”, she says with a chuckle. “But… I could try to talk to them. Just not sure how far I’d get. Besides, spiders are icky.”

Aaron sighs a bit but nods. “I try not to hold too much against anything specifically non-corrupted. These seem attracted by another Mage’s magic and tools specifically. Poor Katie didn’t even know they were there until recently. And while working they have gotten aggressive on several occasions. Now they are spreading to every device in the house.”

A fairly young man, looking maybe to be in his early twenties walks towards the pair if either take much notice of the random passerby. Dressed in light winter clothing, he’s got a strap for a laptop bag slung across his chest, and a chinese takeout box in hand. Humming quietly to an unheard song he passes by.. to stop near the end, head turning some back towards the two and pleasant hum stopping.

Elena perks up and watches the young man for a moment before glancing back toward Aaron curiously. “I will see what I can do.”, she says and then nods politely to Kayn as he passes and waves a little bit, though with her fingers carefully closed.

Aaron lifts hos head up and then seems to look over near the tree overhanging the koi pond. Then he looks back toward Kayn and nods as well.

Kayn pulls an earbud from his left ear, giving them a small grin after what seems like a measure of confusion crosses his face. He nods first to Elena then Aaron. “Don’t mean to be rude, buut I couldn’t help but overhear whatchy’all were saying.” Turning back to face them, he comes to lean on the railing a little way down.

Elena tilts her head a bit as she studies Kayn. “Oh? Your hearing must be even better than mine. Though I am used to the amplification of water.”

Aaron just watches for the moment, though he seems mostly amused.

Kayn just seems… curious perhaps as he looks to Elena, shrugging. “A bit quieter through here, sounds like you two got an interesting DnD game goin on. Weavers, mages.. magic.” He glances down to his watch, pulling back a sleeve before looking back up

Elena smiles a little and then gives Kayn a more open handed wave. “You are alright. And I would hope among friends here. I am Elena, this is Aaron.”

Kayn takes his weight off the rail, straightening and swapping the takeout box to his left hand, then offering the right to Aaron first. “Call me Kayn, good to meet y’all. I’d hope so too Elena. Was just starting to wonder if the city was.. empty so to say.” He smiles now

Aaron takes his hand and shakes it warmly. “Nice to meet you. No… There are a few here. Where are you from? Lets not dance, since Elena seems to be comfortable I will go out on a limb and say that I am Kinfolk.”

Elena shakes his hand as well, her hand warm but the webbing making for an interesting grip. “It is nice to meet you. We were discussing some troublesome spirits.”

“Glad to hear it. Lived down in Houma for the longest time, just moved up here recently. I am garou, born under the crescent moon I’m told.” Then quirking a brow at her as Elena speaks of spirits, he takes her hand firmly, if awkwardly for the webbing, not commenting on it for now. “What kind of troublesome spirits?”

Aaron nods his head at that. “Well, one of the Mages I live with uses a lot of technology in her magic. It is infected with some little weaver spirits I haven’t ever seen before… But they keep doing things like making the stuff go haywire. She almost got electrocuted by a cellphone the other day.”

He hrms thoughtfully, leaning against the railing again with his hip. “Does it seem like they have a specific purpose.. as in, targeting just this person’s electronics?”

Elena looks back toward the water and nods. “And the current goal is to try and convince them to find somewhere else to go rather than try to destroy them.”

Aaron nods. “Yes. We aren’t sure why but they seem very attracted to her technology specifically. Though they have been i guess you call it replicating and infecting other items as well now.”

“Not just hers now?.. May be wrong but if you want to convince them to leave, they’re acting like a virus. They want to spread, replicate and keep doing that same cycle from what I’m hearing. Trick is, finding somewhere tempting to them, where for y’all they hopefully can’t do a whole lotta damage.”

“..Seeing them might better help me get a gauge of their nature. If you don’t know what they are.”

Aaron thinks about it, then nods. “We can go by there later, or I can give you the address if not tonight. Someone is always there and besides, might do some good for you to meet any of the others. Ethan especially could use some Garou company.”

Elena glances back at Aaron and smiles a bit, “I would like to go too. I kind of want to see the baby if that’s alright. I imagine that little new moon child will be a handful when they get mobile.”

Kayn listens intently, nodding to Aaron. “More the merrier.” He continues to grin. “Figure I could do with entertaining a youngin.. I like kids. How many more of us are there?”

Aaron smirks. “Coyote already thinks it’s funny.”, he says and then looks to Kayn. “A few. Daedalus, Ethan, and Jonas are all shifters that I know of. I believe there is another too, or at least more kin that comes around sometimes.”

Aaron smiles. “And my son will one day be one as well. Though we share Coyote’s blood.”

“Coyote?” Kayn seems perplexed, perhaps not knowing of nuwisha. “You are kin to… coyote?” Shaking his head some, then peering past Aaron. “Sorry, I also don’t think I got what you were Miss Elena.”

Elena shrugs a little bit, glancing to her hands. “I am… Complicated. The simple version is a spirit merged with this physical body. Water elemental to be specific.”

Aaron nods his head. “Yes. Like Garou are to Wolf, I and my kin are to Coyote.”

Kayn rubs along his jaw, nodding lightly. “That’s.. interesting. Fascinating really.” He gives a bit of a reassuring smile to Elena if she seemed uncomfortable explaining herself.

Aaron looks to Elena and then back to Kayn. “I believe the proper term is Gorgon. A wyld spirit merged with a physical being.”

Elena shrugs and then gets up. Her flat feet looking uncomfortable on the wooden bridge. “Mmmhmm. Well, I may not change shape but I heal fast and can heal others.”

“I’ve never heard of such.. Don’t look very reptilian to me.” He winks to Elena. “Assuming the term is gorgon because they were melding of snakes and human, as you are a melding of a water spirit and human was it?”

Kayn mostly thinks aloud in the latter

Elena smirks a bit. “Not really. I prefer the company of sharks to snakes and gators. Though I am fine with assisting anyone that is not tainted.”

Aaron nods and glances about the park again. “Well, that is sort of the setup where I am staying. We have a lot of people centered and trying to push back the dark as it were.”

“Well, as I said, I’ll try and help you folk with your pesky spirit problem if you’ll have me.” Nodding seriously then. “Gotta do what we can.”

Elena nods and then moves to follow Aaron. “Maybe someone can help Jonas, Mary, and I with that lock too.” She manages to get hwr shoes on with a frown. “If you drove I can follow you out there.”

Aaron nods. “Its kinda far. So yeah, I drove. I can give either of you a ride if need be.”

Kayn grins and shrugs lightly, phone appearing into hand. “Parked around the block.. The place got an address?”

Aaron nods and then gives him an address and his number. “Okay. Just meet us there then.”

“I’ll be there in a giffy, you two take care.” Entering the address and Aaron’s number into his phone he slips it back into his pocket, swapping the poor, now cold Chinese food back to his other hand, turning to make for his car if nothing else is said

 

#Aeons_Chantry 14

φCadeφ taps furiously away on his keyboard, eyes darting between two of the three monitors. After trolling the dark web for several days he has finally found some useful information on necromantic and dimensional magics. It wasn’t much, certainly less than what Ramirez has been showing him, but unlike those tutoring sessions, this was much more in line with his normal practices.

It wasn’t that Ramirez was a bad teacher per se, just that Euthanatoi philosophies and paradigms were quite a bit different than what Cade was used to. Though what he has just found doesn’t go into nearly the same depth, the equations, symbols, astrological charts and other Hermetic principles are familiar and much easier to work with. At the very least it gives him a basic framework to

#Aeons_Forest 12

<Deveraux> chooses to walk through the forest again on his way toward Zaluut’s house. He’s wearing his usual Victorian-styled suit and walking with his stick in his right hand. He’s looking all around, taking in the sights, scents and sounds of nature even if distant due to the supernatural presence that he exudes that animals are sensitive to.

<Kitt Bishop> is out walking around the forest near to the house, taking care of injured animals, or ending the suffering of a few. She heads back, bare feet picking through the fallen leaves and the bottom of her white robes slightly muddy from her excursions. She sees Deveraux as she gets close to the house and waves to him as she stops near the garden. “Hello, Deveraux.”

#Aeons_Trill 46

<Zane Calbeni> and the other Brujah start the evening off by rearranging the furniture. While someone stays out to turn people away from the parking lot, the rest just start picking things up and moving them around. They even lift the whole island in the center after it is unbolted and carry it off to one corner. Seats are arranged to face the center, where there

<Zane Calbeni> is a single table that Zane happens to be sitting on.

Erik makes sure that only those on the approved list get in, and for some reason, no one wants to argue with the old viking-looking man at the door.

Martin makes his way in and finds a seat out of the way, off near the back door and just watches as they set up for the night.

Marge comes in and looks around, after looking down at Erik and smiling, she goes in and helps move things around if need be. Finding it a bit odd that some of these little guys are just picking things up like they are nothing.

#Aeons_Private 20

<Deveraux> “First, I wanted to commend you on putting together this meeting and running it effienciently and fairly. There was open communication, rival factions in attendence, and all with a lack of tempers flaring and bloodshed.”

<Zane Calbeni> shrugs slightly under his leather jacket before taking it off and tossing it aside on one of of the tables there. “Well, thanks. Sometimes all they need is a platform where they know they are safe and can talk freely to actually start to listen and learn from each other.”

#Aeons_Asylum-Courtyard 15

Chrys is out walking his two big cats, they are like black panthers with long barbed tentacles coming from their backs. He scratches them lightly between the tentacles as they walk together across the yard, enjoying the fresh air.

⋠Cian⋡ normally would watch Chrys from the safety of obfuscation for a bit before approaching, but the strange tentacled cats are just far too interesting. He breaks the illusion from a dozen or so yards away and approaches in full view. “What in the fuck are these things?”

Chrys gives off a faint chuckle as he looks Cian over. “Well, the same thing could be said for you.”, he says and then he makes a clicking sound and both creatures sit on either side of him. “These are some of my creations.”
