Session Ident: #Aeons_Sabbat

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> goes snooping around Talwar’s usual haunts within the Asylum complex, just walking them without actively looking like she is looking for anything.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° was in the training room, working on some forms/katas.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> stands in the doorway and watches him for a few minutes, not interupting and in fact taking some time to study him.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° would move slowly through the form, his muscles chiseled and working like a well oiled machine. It was as if he had done this so many times before and had to get each move perfect before being allowed to go on. When he finished, he’d turn and balance in a cat stance, then stand in at at ease pose, sliding his sword back into its hilt.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> leans against the doorframe, finding herself just smiling at him as she watches in silence. Once he is finished she finally lightly knocks on the frame beside her.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° turns to the door and then inclines his head as he sees Sascha. “Greetings, Sascha.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> nods and remains in the doorway, turning a bit toward the outside. “We should talk a bit. Walk with me?”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Alright.” He approached her and then would gesture for her to lead on.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> moves away from the doorway and starts to head outside, taking a brief look around before skirting up around the north side of the compound. “Did you know about the skinned man dying?”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° frowns slightly and shook his head. “No, this is the first I have heard of it.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> nods a bit, glancing from him to their surroundings again. “Okay. Well, Kitt was in the Chapel with me and that book you all brought back. I left her and the man alone for a moment and then I heard a scream and there was a flash of light… I came back to find her unconscious and him dead.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Is Kitt conscious now? Was there any sign of a struggle or were their marks on either? This is quite disconcerting. I had hoped obtaining the book, we could get information from the man and see what the significance of this book was.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> nods her head softly. “It was a few weeks ago… she was fine, though hungry. She nearly drained that Revenant that hangs around, Chris. Zaluut checked out the body and says that the person’s soul was removed.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Where is the book currently? This is not good.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> sighs a bit but doesn’t lose step with him. “Zaluut has it locked up. But Kitt freaked. Something… is wrong with Kitt. Zaluut doesn’t remember talking to me about it but he was concerned there was… someone else in there.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “I would think the same, and yet wonder how, but now that we also had to deal with the corrupt blood situation..maybe it was one of the revenants under control? I do not know but I can check out the room and see if I can discern anything as to who the attacker may have been and also talk to Kitt. We get along decently. She might talk to me.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> nods her head softly. “I know he confided in Antol, who then erased his memory at his behest. He said that he worried with his bond to Kitt that it could be problematic if whatever else was there used it to find out we knew it was there. I know that sounds crazy but… it makes sense. And he was serious.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods. “I will give it to Zaluut. He’s very intelligent and foresees quite a bit with solid intuition. I’ll go see what I can get from Kitt after I check out the room where this happened in…then likely need to talk to Antol or Zaluut, so we can figure out what to do about said book, now that the man is gone.” He frowned. He was not pleased with the events, for sure.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> nods her head a bit. “He was also asking if I knew if there was a way for a soul to come back beyond diablerie… I didn’t have an answer. I don’t believe it possible, the soul is consumed to my knowledge but he seemed concerned.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “It depends on how successful the diablerie is, to be honest.” The Clan of dialberists would know. xD

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> frowns just a smidge at that, but nods. “That’s a lovely thought. I’d rather not think about any part of my Sire still lingering about in my head. He was a traitor. I didn’t pry too much into it with Zaluut. We get along to an extent but we aren’t exactly close.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “When you diablerize, you can take on various parts of the other person. If you fail against their will, their soul could actually be in tact within the person. Some people have been taken over by those who they diablerized. It is not as safe as some would have you believe.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “So..why would he bring up diablerie in specifics?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> shakes her head. “I don’t know. The only ones I can think of that would be privy to his past besides himself are Antol and Michael.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods. “I will see what I can find out then. I may understand. You want to head to that room with me or should I go on alone?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> shakes her head softly. “It is best if i keep my distance. As Zaluut doesn’t remember asking for help, he may take my presence or snooping as an intrusion.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods. “Alright. See you later, Sascha.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> bows her head slightly, reaching out and brushing the back of her hand against his arm lightly before turning to walk off toward the Chapel. “Alright, if you need me, you know where to find me.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods. “Understood. Good evening.” He’d head off to go to that room and investigate. Sascha’s words were interesting and it gave him something to go off of, but he really hoped it was not something due to a botched incident of the past. If it was…Zaluut was going to need some assistance..and a good talking to. That would go over well. xD

<@Nox_Aegis> <Storyteller> The morgue is down in the tunnels, which reminds him of the Vohzd and the other nasty creatures living down there. It is off to the side, in one of the new tunnels. There aren’t many bodies in here, just ones preserved for one reason or another. The skinned man is among these.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° would check over the poor dead guy to see if he could discern the cause of death.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° would read over the autopsy notes Zaluut did, not really finding anything that was a solid lead to cause of death. Noting Zaluut also found nothing, this was not a good thing. He’d try to go to the room then where the Kitt and the man were at before he died.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> answers the door when Talwar arrives at the Chapel, allowing him inside. “Well, that was quick.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods. “Yes, unfortunately I found about as much out as Zaluut did, examining the body. Absolutely nothing. Zaluut made a comment that it seemed like the man simply lost the will to live, as far as he could tell. There’s just nothing physically off..more than obviously what he was already suffering, that I could discern.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> nods and allows him into the back. “Well, they were sitting here discussing the book. I stepped into the front there, and I saw the light from here… it was bright, like sunlight.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “The book was not here at the time, right?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> shakes her head. “It was. Kitt had the book.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> “She was getting his help translating a passage on human sacrifice.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Interesting…Right then. I suppose we should see if there’s any other entrance into this place.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° would walk around the room and inspect. To double check, he’d use obtenebration to see if any secret entrances or weaknesses could be felt.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> watches him from the doorway, but keeps quiet and lets him do his thing.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° shakes his head and looks back at Sascha. “I don’t really see how something could be in here unless it was hiding all along within, before they arrived..Maybe obfuscated? There’s no way in here…which I am sure is a comfort to you.” * he smirked sardonically…”Other than through that door.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> nods her head. “Yeah, unless it was riding inside the body of someone, or something. Such as an innocent seeming girl, or a book.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods. “Yes, exactly. It had to be brought in. Have you ever seen a power used like what cast that light?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> frowns softly. “No, but… That was what drew Zaluut’s attention, at least as Antol told it to me. He said it was as if a high level of a power that Kitt possesses but should not be capable of yet was used.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods, knowing about Kitt’s secret, but not willing to discuss it with anyone but Kitt or maybe Zaluut at this point.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Alright, I think then I will go talk to Kitt and see how she is…and then Zaluut. As it stands, I have found as much out as you have in this. We’re stuck.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> nods and shows him out. “Alright. Be careful. We don’t know what this is, what it is capable of, or where it might be hiding.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods. ” I will be. You too. Let me know if you think anything else is off.”
