Session Start: Fri Feb 17 00:00:00 2017
Session Ident: #Aeons_Asylum

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> is walking about the glass coffin room, looking at the bodies laying inside the cases. She walks slowly from one to the next, almost seeming to speak to each member before moving on.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° was on the search for Kitt, hoping he could get some info from her and see if she was alright.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> pauses for an especially long time outside of the case containing a cocoon, gently running her fingertips over the glass at the edge of it. She sighs, her other arm held close to herself, across her waist.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° stands at the entrance to the room, quietly watching her before he’d speak. “Kitt?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> looks down and then turns her head to glance back at talwar, smiling weakly and then turning fully to face him. “Hi Talwar. Do you need something?”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods slowly to her and entered the room. “Yes, if you don’t mind. Are you alright?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> lifts her left arm and waves it slightly, nodding to him. “Mmhmm. It’s all grown back now. I was just doing some thinking.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Mind if I ask what about?” He studied her and smirked slightly as she waved her arm.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> trails her hand over the glass coffin containing the cocoon again. “These. And why they are sleeping… what they might be dreaming about.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “What are they? Just revenants?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> shakes her head. “No… these were the Wardens. They are in Torpor, and no one knows why… they think the ritual went wrong maybe.”, she says and moves a little further into the room, turning away from Talwar to face the coffins once more.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Ah, right..the Wardens. I think it might have something to do with what’s going on here. We’re facing some angry opponents that probably knew about us before we knew about them. Can you tell me what happened the night that the skinless man died?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> lowers her head slightly, but she doesn’t turn back to face him. “I remember I went to the Chapel with the book to have him help me with a passage in it. Sascha was there too. I was hungry already… Zaluut had been using some of my strength to bolster his to keep those shadow things outside the walls. I was reading and then when Sascha left there was a bright light, I closed my eyes… when i opened them Rakshasa, Fiona, Sascha, and Chris were standing over me.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “You don’t know where the light came from? Did you feel odd at all before it happened?”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° glanced around, watching Kitt, the seemingly lifeless bodies…and he will activate celerity.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> shakes her head ever so softly, hardly moving. “No. I didn’t feel odd or anything. I was upset at what I was reading, but that was it.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “What were you reading in particular? Are you sure you had nothing to do with it?” He continued to monitor surroundings, waiting but keeping aware with cel active.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> doesn’t move. “A passage about virgin sacrifices they were making in the area… a long time ago. What are you going to do? I didn’t kill him. The book didn’t kill him. He just… died.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “I don’t think that is true, Kitt. He seemed okay before that. He was not in critical condition. There was a light, as you and Sascha both described, but where that light came from is somewhat a mystery. No one else was in that room, at least that could have gotten in there but by being carried in. The room was quite sealed.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> turns around and tilts her head ever so slightly as she watches Talwar. Her third eye is wide open, and seems to be flicking back and forth, looking around on its’ own. It focuses on Talwar for a moment, and then looks at the door behind him before looking side to side again. “Well, it was a church, and he was rather devout. Perhaps his prayers for release were finally answered.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Why is your third eye open, Kitt? Why are you looking about and what is it you are about to do?” He frowned slightly realizing he might be crossing some dangerous threshhold here, but he didn’t want to just give up either. He cared for Kitt and also that she was what she was.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> reaches up and touches near the eye with a sigh. “I really wish she’d stop fighting. She does make things far more difficult than they need to be.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> shakes her head, her third eye still shifting back and forth as if afraid. “No matter. Kitt did nothing. I just gave him what he wanted most, to go be with God.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Thank you, Kitt.” He smirked slightly to her, but whether she would see or not, he wasn’t sure. She was possessed, as he feared, by this creature. He drew his sword in a smooth motion. “Who are you? You are not going to be able to control her for long.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> tilts her head faintly, and the third eye focuses on Talwar again. “Not who you think, or what. And that’s not true. We are one, she and I. I have experience she does not and her willpower will fade eventually. No loss for any of you. She can’t stomach what must be done.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “A diablerie gone wrong.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> laughs, and the sound is chilling. “Oh, no. Not on her part. Though I had planned to be able to consume her by now it is going slower than I would like.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “I see. I haven’t really heard of such a thing passing onto another person before. You must have been pretty powerful. Kitt has a lot of perseverence though. At any point, what do you really think you are going to get away with?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> crosses her arms as she looks Talwar over. “What do you mean? She is weak, and Zaluut coddles her. You all do.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “You think she is so weak and yet she is standing against you. Her will flourishes and slows your intentions down to a snail crawl, but she is weak? Come now, even the kindest of people can be provoked to rise and surprise the coldest of us. You don’t really seem to know so much about her, but she stands in your way. Who are you to call her out as so pathetic?”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  makes her way upstairs from the library, looking toward the duo and making her way over. “The hell are you two doing?”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Kitt is possessed. Be wary.”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  eyes Kitt. “By what?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> recoils backward, cringing from talwar. “I don’t know what he’s talking about! He’s the one possessed!”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  looks between the two.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “A spirit that also managed to kill the skinless man”, he said calmly, watching Kitt’s performance. “She needs to be detained so that we can remove it.”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  “Conscious or unconscious?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> flashes her middle eye, and the area around her warps. “Stay back!”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  just cracks her knuckles. “This’ll only hurt for a second.”

<+MichaelM> “Something worth yelling about?” Anne knocks on the doorframe, having heard a commotion in passing. “Looks like a party, eh?” She observes, though her expression is steely as she glares at Fiona and Talwar.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “For her own safety, unconscious.” He looks at Kitt. “Kitt, we will help you. I promise we will do all we can. Trust in me.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Storyteller> There seems to be some sort of barrier around Kitt that starts drainign the wills of anyone getting within ten feet.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° will try to rush to go behind her and strike with cel.

<+MichaelM> From behind Talwar there is the click-clack of a chambering shotgun. “I’d like an explanation first before my questions start coming at muzzle velocity.”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  grimaces and takes a few steps closer, clenching her hands into fists as she approaches.

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] was passing by and sees Anne banging on the door “Whats going on?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> cries out, “Anne, help! They’re after me!”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  “Bullshit. She’s possessed.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° holds on the attack backing away slightly since everyone is showing up and has some violence intended. “She has been taken over, possessed. She is still in there, but this spirit is the one who killed the skinless man, and it has hidden within her.”

<+MichaelM> “Back away from Pup, real slow-like there, sword.” Anne growls. “We can talk about this, you and I, or I can start spreading around some 12-gauge love.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Now, she’s using some odd power…is it fine now that she be captured so we can aid her or is anyone else going to show up and try to stop it?”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° keeps his eyes on Kitt.

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  steps closer to Kitt, raising her hands to an attack position. “Put the gun down, Grandma.”

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] “Is that true Kitt? Did you kill the skinned man?”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “It is not Kitt right now. This is an act.”

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] starts shifting into his warform

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> trembles her lower lip faintly, her gaze sifting from Talwar to Fiona and back again. She sniffles faintly. Her third eye is glowing with a blue light that seems to envelop a space about ten feet around her. “I’m just protecting myself… they had that stuff in them. They might have it again. It’s they that need the help.”

<+MichaelM> “I said we can talk about this, Firebrand.” Anne’s eyebrow furrows. “You’re making my trigger finger awful itchy.”

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] “Back off Fiona..”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> “Call Zaluut, he’d be able to tell if they are infected.”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  looks to Anne. “What the fuck is there to talk about?” She whips her head around to look at Kitt, snarling. “I’m not fucking infected.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “You are wasting time, but I can wait a long time. Eventually the blood will run down and this ability will wear itself out. You all seem to think Kitt is this pathetic that she’d whine and beg like this? You do not know her.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> looks over at Rakshasa, “Go and get Zaluut. He’ll sort it out. He’d know if it’s me or not.”

<+MichaelM> “I know I’m not the one pointing a sword at her, for starters.” Anne snarls back. “So back. Cehennem. *Off*.”

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] [Yeti] “You want me to go get Zaluut, looking like a ferocious beast?”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  “Let grandma go.”

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] [Yeti] “Alright, Anne please. In the meantime, no violence”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Do NOT get Zaluut. Stop following her advice. That is not Kitt.”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  steps closer, drawing back a fist….

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “I will not back down. That ability will fade and when it does, she is going out cold. You do not know what you are dealing with and it is using her. When have -I- led you wrong? Think.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> shakes her head a bit. “Why would he fear Zaluut if he were not infected?”

<+MichaelM> “Seems to me only one of us is acting irrationally, here.” Anne responds to Talwar. As Fiona raises a fist, the shotgun points at here. “Don’t do it Firebrand. I’m not askin’ again.”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  “Bring it.” She just stalks toward Kitt and drives her fist at the woman’s stomach.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “You will do as you wish, Anne. I am sworn to my duty.”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  falls over, unable to even curse. This will just piss her off.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> looks down at the fallen Fiona, then to Rakshasa again. “Hurry, it’s effecting them… we need to get help.”

<+MichaelM> “I’m on it.” Anne reaches down and picks up Fiona, hefting the woman over her shoulder. “Watch ’em, will you, Tiger?”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “That is one of us down for a time. No one should approach her with this ability going, but we should not let her escape either. It is not Kitt in the driver’s seat right now. I do not bluff.” He kept his eyes still on Kitt.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° sighs softly and shakes his head.

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] [Yeti] “No one leaves. Till this is sorted you” he looks at Kitt and Khanna unable to trust neither

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> nods to Anne, then looks between the remaining two. Most of her attention on Talwar. “That’s fine. Just keep him away from me. And don’t get too close yourself, you don’t want that stuff in you.”

<+MichaelM> “Right, well. As nice as that sounds, I’m getting Firebrand checked out.” Anne declares then moves to push past Rakshasa.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “A heavy lesson is going to be learned today. I will wait.”

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] “Just so you know. I don’t trust either of you at this moment. One of you is either infected/possessed.”

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] waits for a moment then comments “Fiona and Talwar were cleansed. But I remember the night the flayed man died, you were there at the chapel Kitt and you blacked out.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° just kept watch on Kitt, waiting, instead of responding.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> nods, watching and waiting herself. Her third eye shifting from Talwar toward the door now and then.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> answers the door to the Chapel when Anne arrives with Fiona. “Uhhh, hello?”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  is draped over Anne’s shoulder.

<+MichaelM> “Can’t stay, gotta run,” Anne blurts out in a rush. “Tiger, Sword, and Pup are upstairs in the main building. Pup may be possessed, or there may be infection. Going to get Zaluut bye.”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  will be really grumpy and pissed when she’s no longer paralyzed.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> looks confused but prepares to go see what it going on.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> is in the library when he sees Fiona being carried by Anne. “Getting into trouble again I see?”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  would have flipped him off.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° continues watching Kitt would a silent warrior pose, ready if anything changes.

<+MichaelM> “Someone is, yeah.” Anne responds, making an effort to slow her speaking down. “We have either an infection or a possession on the upper floor. Sascha’s on her way, but we’ll need you up there too, boss. Preferably before Sword tries decapitating anyone else.”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  would get up, cursing a blue streak, and begins to storm toward the stairs leading up.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> looks concerned and starts to move toward the direction indicated. “Wait, what?”

<+MichaelM> “It’s complicated, and if you don’t diffuse shite, someone’s getting shot.” Anne states plainly, pulling her shotgun back out as Fiona pulls away and storms up the stairs. Anne moves to follow.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> reaches the room first, looking to Kitt, then to Talwar. “Talwar, what is going on?”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  makes her way back to the room and pushes past Rak, lips pulled into a snarl.

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] [Yeti] a large werebeast greets Sascha “There is a problem. Kitt claims Talwar and Fiona have been infected. Talwar claims Kitt killed the flayed man and is possessed by an evil spirit. I dont know who to trust”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> pulls out her custom magnum, crusifix set into the grip. She points it at Kitt and fires, 3 times.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Kitt is possessed. The being calls her weak but he cannot successfully defeat her utterly to take over completely. She fights him. Anne will not listen.. but I checked that room with you there… Kitt was the only one within and the creature within her now, it talked to me and confirmed it.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> groans a bit, and looks fairly angry for a minute at being shot. The first stiking her pretty good but the other two just flatten against her skin and fall to the floor.

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  “Let me hit her once.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> crumples to the floor and passes out, all her eyes closing.

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] “Huh, so she was possessed”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> walks in, and looks over the room, his eyes falling on Sascha, the gun, and kitt on the floor. he snarls.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> raises her hands, shaking her head at Zaluut. “Zaluut… it is not as it seems.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> scoops Kitt up off the floor and growls at Sascha as he stands. “I am sure.”, he looks over the others as well, one by one.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° heads over to Kitt. “Please do not approach, Zaluut. The possessed wanted you to come here.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> focuses his gaze on Talwar as he tries to move toward Kitt as well.

<+MichaelM> Anne leans up against the wall near the stairwell, trying to pretend the situation is no longer her problem.

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] [Yeti] just grits his teeth

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° picks Kitt up and turns to Zaluut. “We need to talk but she should be secured. I am asking you to wait until after we speak before you do anything. Sascha can contain her.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> snarls and takes a step toward Talwar, his skin rippling across his face and hands. The doors all close in the room. “You will talk now before I allow you to leave with her.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° eyes Zaluut. “I have been your servant and honorable to you and your ways. I am asking you to trust me and the words I have for you are -for you-. If you cannot trust Sascha and me, who can you truly trust? Kitt is -not well-. I do not FEAR to stand when I am honorable.” His words were perhaps the loudest and clearest he had spoken for usually he was soft-spoken, but Anne and now Zaluut had brought him to rage, questioning his code of honour.

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  cracks her knuckles, watching Zaluut and Kitt. “Drop her and keep her here.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> looks visibly worried, glancing from Talwar back to Zaluut. She steps forward, putting her gun away. “Zaluut, I am telling you. Go to Antol. Talwar means her no harm and you know it… but she is yours. He knows this too. He is not taking her from you.”

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] [Yeti] has nothing meaningful to add to the conversation. So he keeps quiet

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> turns his gaze on Fiona, ignoring Sascha. The doors open up again, but a growl escapes him.

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  snarls back, narrowing her eye in response.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Fiona, stand down.”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  looks to Talwar and doesn’t -exactly- stand down completely, but relaxes minutely.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> starts to back toward the open door, ready to make for the Chapel.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> takes a step toward Fiona, rows of small spikes emerging from the backs of his hands.

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  tenses up again as Zaluut approaches, clenching both hands into fists.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° would move to follow Sascha to the chapel so that Kitt could be contained. “Zaluut, please. I will explain it to you. If after you are displeased still with what has come about, that is your right.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° would then depart after saying that.

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] [Yeti] is very interested to see if Zaluut is going to stab Fiona. He glances at Anne and takes a few steps towards the open door, but he’s not out yet

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> leans close to Fiona’s face, his voice somewhere between a growl and a whisper. “You touch in anger what is mine and I will turn you inside out and leave you as a toy for the hounds.”

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  just gives Zaluut a terse nod after listening to him hiss in her ear, her expression unchanging.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> spins around, looking at those remaining. “I will see Talwar in my study when he returns.”, and as he leaves the door slams behind him of it’s own volition.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> brings Talwar and kitt inside the Chapel, looking at Talwar and then opening up a trapdoor under one of the pews and heading down. “Down here. It’s warded against spirits and demons.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods and would take Kitt down through the trapdoor. “We are definitely tested here.”

<+Dusk> [Rakshasa] [Yeti] turns around and leaves, slowly shifting back to his human form

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> nods and makes sure that there is room to rest her on the dirt floor of the room. She clasps a warded shackle to her leg. Along the walls are a lot of implements of torture, some of them made from various types of metals like silver and cold iron.

<+Blackfyre> <Fiona>  grumbles and goes to take her pent-up anger out on any training dummies.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° sets Kitt down gently so she’s about as comfortable as she’s going to be with a shackled up leg.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Kitt Bishop> lays still, though she breathes and her heart beats as if still human.

<+MichaelM> After Zaluut’s had some time to calm down, Anne wanders off in search of Sascha to check if Kitt’s alright.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° stands up. “Wish me luck.” he winks and then would head out of the trapdoor to go back to the room.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> looks to Talwar and nods. “Good luck going into the Dragon’s lair.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> sighs as she sees Anne approaching, but allows her inside of the Chapel after Talwar leaves.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° walks past Anne heading to the room.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> is in his study, pacing like a caged animal. The doors open automatically as Talwar approaches them, not even giving him the chance to knock.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° notes this and yup, this was going to be great! Zaluut was in a terrific mood. He walked straight in without hesitation though. He’d then stop before the pacing Zaluut and incline his head in a bow.

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> turns to face Talwar and the doors to the study close behind him. He walks over and takes a seat, indicating the other chair for Talwar, though his motions are still polite his features are still obviously angry.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° moved over to the other chair and would smoothly descend into it.

<+MichaelM> “I won’t bug you long, Faithful.” Anne greets Sascha as she’s let into the chapel. “I just wanted to see if Pup’s alright.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> glances at the trapdoor before looking back to Anne. “She is sleeping. Hopefully Talwar can get to the bottom of whatever is actually wrong. I didn’t have the heart to tell him she could simply have lost her mind and it split in two to cope with being what she is.”

<+MichaelM> Anne shoots the trapdoor a concerned glance as well. “Damn.” She sighs heavily, then tries to re-assert her usual half-grin. “I’d recommend my shrink, but I don’t think my health insurance covers guest visits. Not that I’ve got insurance anymore.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Sascha> smiles a little bit at that and nods. “She’ll be taken care of regardless. If it’s her mind… that can be dealt with. If it’s an invader… we can deal with that too.”

<+MichaelM> Anne’s brow furrows, but she nods. “I…I understand. Thanks for helpin’ her.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> just watches Talwar, his gaze near burning a whole through the man across from him.

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “I am not trying to steal Kitt away from you. She is not well, Zaluut. This other mind within her is dark and it strives to take over her, but she fights and stands against it as she can. The skinless man was killed by this other side in her that possesses her. I checked the room, as did Sascha before. There was no way anything else was within there and the bright light.. The power she wielded before Sascha killed her was a will affect. To be near her was to feel the will weaken. Does this not go with what your notes were? How is Kitt so powerful with these attacks when she has not been so familiar with what she is for long? I know what powers she has inherited through the blood.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “I believe the bright light was Kitt trying to take back over to stop that other power from being used. She willingly knocked herself out.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> pauses, and his expression changes for a moment, softening. The spikes in his skin retreat. “A long time ago, when the Tremere were just getting started… I had been a vampire for some time already, and I had a companion, even lover if you will, named Silus. He was Salubri. When the Tremere began their culling of the Salubri clan, systematically hunting them down… we fled and I tried to take him back to my homeland, where they dare not enter.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> “They cornered us in a cave system still more than a days travel to my home. They were tracking Silus by his blood with their sorcery. Silus’s solution was that no matter what, they should not have it. So I took some of his Vitae and stored it, keeping it with me. And then… I consumed his blood and soul so that they could not have it.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods, listening to the tale. He was familiar with the notion of what happened but the details were now filling in. “And this is how Kitt could become what she is later, yes?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> “I searched for a way to return him for a while, but found nothing on it. In time, I moved on. I used some of that blood to Embrace Kitt. Her nature was such that the Healer’s Blood seemed a good fit for her.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> “I do not know how, but I started seeing parts of him in her. At first i thought it was mearly that she shared his blood, but she knew things… things that happened long before she existed.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “I did not think such was exactly possible, but is it that he could have passed his soul into her and now she and he are fighting for control? The person I spoke with was not the Kitt I know. I am very sure of this.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> sighs, leaning back in his chair. “If any clan would know how to preserve a soul, even from diablerie, it would be that one. But he is different, bitter, angry. Perhaps he feels we have failed in our mission to destroy the Tremere as they still run rampant.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “That is just not something that is going to happen anytime soon. The Tremere are more likely to ruin themselves, honestly. My Clan has no love for them either. Perhaps we could try talking to him, but either way, if he is not stopped, your friend is going to take over Kitt eventually. He is much older than she is and he underestimates her now, but he won’t always.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “It is time he either passes on or somehow co-exists with her.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> growls faintly, though it isn’t aimed at Talwar. “Perhaps he planned this all along, knowing my sentimental nature would eventually lead him to a new body.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “I do not know, but he is not like you are and he has already sabotaged important work we were trying to do with that man and the book. I have not seen before a spirit that could pass from one to another like this, though I have seen botched diableries where souls have transferred. Perhaps he was waiting all along for his chance when you found an ideal host.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> sneers faintly. “He is in for a fight. I did not choose Kitt lightly. If her will was weak I would not have taken her to teach my sorcery to. I must look into any way we can seperate them.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods. “I believe that is true. I am a bit disgruntled others did not and chose to believe his words of weakness that stirred them. They do not know her strength. I don’t think he fully does either. You chose well. What else can you tell me about this Silus? What do you think our best recourse is?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> nods his head slightly. “Most of them still have ties to their human nature, or are young yet. I dote on her as a matter of affection, not to protect her. Well, he was of the healing branch of the Salubri, though the path of their powers I studied was the warrior branch. That was how we met. Not that he couldn’t hold his own in a fight, and he hated the Tremere, we both did. He did some studying of sorcery, but it was not like that from my homeland and so i don’t know much about it.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “I am curious about both styles as they are interesting and seemingly a near lost art form. Is there perhaps a possibility we could convince Silus to not take her over and find him a new body/host?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> looks thoughtful and then nods. “Considering the great and varied knowledge we have here I would think we could find a way to do it. If I had known before I would have sought out something suitable for him. As for the old powers of the Salubri, I could teach you the Warrior’s Path, if you ever want to learn it. I am sure one of your nature could put it to good use.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “I would be honored if you would, Zaluut. As for this..perhaps we can talk to him then and offer him that we can look for a way to transfer him so he does not elminate Kitt.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Perhaps he will go for it.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> nods his head. “I hope so. Part of me fears he is trying to take her out of spite, that I moved on without him.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods. “Are you up to talking to him now to see if he will accept and give us time to find a proper host?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> looks thoughtful and then shakes his head. “I need to clear my head before I go attempt to speak with him. I will do so tomorrow.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods. “alright. Do you mind if I go see Kitt and speak to him if he is still in charge?”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Zaluut> shakes his head. “No, go ahead. And thank you.”

<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° stands up and then would bow to Zaluut. “You are welcome. Thank you for believing in me.”
