<+Blackfyre> <Fiona> would head off soon after.
<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods slowly to her and would put his other hand over hers a moment and let her hand go to let her depart. He’d walk back over to Abequa and kneel before her again.
<+FreakLegion> Abequa watches him come back, watching the woman walk off and then asks. “How do you define what is honorable and what isn’t?”
<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Honest, truthful, concise, clear, principled, righteous, creditable conduct. These are honorable. Dishonorable would be corruption, base, dishonest, unprincipled, unworthy.”
<+FreakLegion> Abequa looks frustrated again. “How do you know? How do you know what you are told is truth, really is so?”
<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “There is objective truth and subjective truth. Do you know the difference?”
<+FreakLegion> Abequa looks confused for a second and then shakes her head.
<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “You were basically raised by this cult, weren’t you? Isolated to their truths?”
<+FreakLegion> Abequa tilts her head. “I don’t understand what you mean by cult. I grew up in the city. There’s lots of different people there. It was kinda like this place, only bigger. Where everyone stays away from the darkness. It can’t come inside the borders, like here.”
<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “The city under the ground is not a place that is like where others are raised.”
<+FreakLegion> Abequa watches him, still confused. “I don’t understand. Well, you all don’t live underground… but still. It is kinda the same from what I have seen so far.”
<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “There is much you are going to see in the world that is beyond what you have known. We will be addressing these things as we acclimate you to many things out here. At any point, A subjective truth is an opinion, a thought that you believe is true. An objective truth is a truth whether you can observe it or not. It is a solid fact, scientifically. Both
<@Death> are important but you should know the difference so you can tell what a ‘truth’ is. You may have to admit you were wrong if you were standing behind a subjective truth that is actually not valid. You are going to have to test your subjective truths you have now constantly to make them as close to objective truths as you are able.”
<+FreakLegion> Abequa nods, listening. “Okay. I will do this to the best of my ability and understanding.”
<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “So, can you say the line back to me and what it should mean to you?”
<@Death> °¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “You seem to have done well tonight, so get some rest. We will go over more until you know all of the Code and feel the Path.”
<+Chezz> Isabella starts wandering outside around in the courtyard admiring the scenery.
<+Nickolas> Christopher wanders into the courtyard and starts counting all of the flowers. He then spies Isabella,”Good Evening.”
<+Chezz> Isabella looks to where the voice came from and sees Christopher. “Good Evening.” She then bows a bit.
<+Chezz> “I was just wandering out here and admiring the scenery. How about you? What brings you out here?”
<@Death> °¥ Dragos Danislav ¥° decided to wander the courtyard and see what was all about the place. He’d glance over at Isabella and Christopher with some curiosity and then regard what Christopher was actually doing.
<+Nickolas> Christopher looks to her,”I’m just taking a break from my studying and practicing. I don’t recall if I have introduced myself yet. My name is Christopher. I’m one of the ‘ghouls’ here although I’m a bit different than the ones who get fed blood. I was born… different… even among ghouls. Anyway, I’m happy to provide you any assistance I can, should you need anything feel free to ask me.”
<+Blackfyre> <Fiona> comes downstairs and outside, stretching and looking over to the people in the courtyard.
<+Chezz> Isabella looks to Christopher from head to toe and then looks straight to his face with an expression of curiousity. “Oh! Nice to meet you Christopher! I’m Isabella, I’m sort of new here.” She then bows a bit. “I’ve never met or talked to a Ghoul before. If you don’t mind me asking what are ghouls and how are you different from other ghouls?”
<+Blackfyre> <Fiona> “He’s different because he’s fucking touched in the head, that’s how.”
<@Death> °¥ Dragos Danislav ¥° “First thing’s first, Isabella… you’re a Kindred. You don’t need to bow to some ghoul. Just sayin.” He lights a cig and then gives a wave to Fiona.
<+Chezz> Isabella looks around to see Fiona and Dragos. “Good Evening Fiona and Dragos. I don’t understand, are ghouls like servants? and what do you mean by touched in the head?”
<+Blackfyre> <Fiona> “Yo, and yeah, they are.”
<+Nickolas> Christopher smiles,”He is quite right, I am the one who bows my lady. Ghouls are still living although changed by the blood. Creatures who consume vampire blood become ghouled and gain some limited vampire qualities and abilities but still maintain the ability to go into the sun. They also often become loyal to the one who ghouled them through the addictive and mystical properties of the blood. Like vampires ghouls can live for hundreds of years. I am what’s called a ‘revenant’ though so I do not need to be fed vampire blood and have innate vampire abilities such as the ability to recover from injuries, although I’m still far easier to kill than a kindred.”
<+Blackfyre> <Fiona> “He’s a damn lab experiment who thinks this world’s a fucking fantasy novel or something.”
<+Nickolas> Christopher,”I wasn’t really going to get into that aspect, however yes I was the result of an experiment by my revenant family in improving the vitae production of a revenant. My blood provides more nourishment than the typical kine and I developed psychic abilities.”
<+Blackfyre> <Fiona> “As if any of us are gonna fucking drink from you, Lab Boy.”
<@Death> °¥ Dragos Danislav ¥° “Damn, Christopher is a walking dictionary. That was pretty good.”
<+Chezz> Isabella looks with curiousity at Christopher. “Thank you for the clarification. That was… very detailed. You must have spent a lot of time studying and doing research. You mentioned you were taking a break, what were you working on?”
<+Nickolas> Christopher smiles to Fiona,”I’m merely a prototype, also the intent of improving the production of blood for a revenant wasn’t about being a food source, it was about making us more valuable in combat.” He then looks to Isabella,”A variety of projects, but I am hoping to isolate the effects of the serum that changed me and apply it to regular mortals to improve their production. I also hope to enhance the effects of my own serum and possibly create another branch of Revenants. I have been gathering fish to use as specimens for my experiments, I believe acquiring catfish would be best in the long term.”
<+Blackfyre> <Fiona> snorts, listening to him.
<+Chezz> Isabella smiles at Christopher. “Do you eat normal food? So being a ghoul means you are not affected by the weaknesses that vampires have… such as sunlight and such? Also… where do you go to gather your specimens? Do you wander out on your own?”
<+Nickolas> Christopher nods,”Yes, I eat normal food and we are typically not affected by sunlight. We are property however and I do not leave the compound without permission. Fortunately the compound is very large and I do not need to leave the property to gather most things. Ghouls are dependent on the kindred and cannot exist without them, not even the revenants like myself. I believe that it is a mutually beneficial relationship though. Ghouls and revenants are capable of protecting their lieges during the daylight. I also believe that revenants may provide an insight as to how to further advance both.”
<@Death> °¥ Dragos Danislav ¥° yawns and wanders off to go do some other stuff before he decided to cause trouble in bad ways.
<+Chezz> Isabella looks to Christopher. “I thought you could go to town and stuff. Was probably gonna ask you to get me something but nevermind. Are you okay with being a revenant here? I heard servants are treated badly by some of their masters.”
<+Nickolas> Christopher smiles,”I belong to Zaalut and he treats me well. If you want me to go to town to get something I just need to ask. I doubt Zaalut would mind the request at least.”
<+Chezz> Isabella looks up and thinks for a moment. “No nevermind. I will probably do it myself when I do get permission to leave. Thanks. I’m actually thinking of heading to the gym to work on getting myself stronger. Have to prepare, I want to help out the pack as much as I can. Do you know where the gym is here?”
<+Nickolas> Christopher nods,”Yes there are a number of places to work out. We have a building over there with different equipment.” He points to the building with the boxing equipment from the other day,”And we also have a work out area outside over there.” He points to where the running and sparring area is.”The weights and stuff will come from inside but we do most of our aerobics and sparring outdoors. I am likewise trying to get fit, although I focus more on mental exercises as it’s sort of my strength… literally.”
<+Chezz> Isabella looks to the building and where Christopher points to. “Got it. Thanks. I feel like I should get stronger since I’m new-ish and I’m going with Anne. Wouldn’t want to be a burden and all. Although every now and then I find myself in the library. I like to read up on stuff and do research.”
<+Nickolas> Christopher smiles,”We all have our own strengths find yours and capitalize on them, and cover your weaknesses. I may not ever become very strong, but I will eventually become stronger than the average person.” Christopher looks down at the ground and a rock floats up into the air.”Anne likes to poke fun at me, saying it’s all fantasy, but look around you. We are vampires and ghouls. I’m psychic too at that. We can live forever and we can heal our wounds. If that’s real then what is fantasy? Science is just another form of magic. Alchemy works too. I hope to make some potions for us eventually.”
<+Blackfyre> <Fiona> starts laughing. “See what I fucking told you? He’s goddamn touched in the head.” She looks to Chris. “This isn’t fucking fantasy, Lab Boy. This is real life. If you’re so obsessed with fantasy, go live in the fucking library and don’t bother us.”
<+Chezz> Isabella looks at the rock floating. “So you believe more in fantasy than in science then? What sort of potions are you hoping to make in the future?”
<+Blackfyre> <Fiona> looks at Isabella. “Don’t fucking indulge him. Just walk away now and save your sanity.”
<+Nickolas> The rock floats slowly over to Isabella and Christopher replies,”The only fantasy that exists is the one that we create for ourselves by trying to draw lines of what is true around ourselves. I’m hoping to make potions that enhance our innate abilities. Potions that make us stronger, faster or smarter for a time. I use a combination of alchemy, enchanting and science in most of my projects just like my father did. Still Fiona is right that I should probably spend more time working out rather than always hiding in my books, but the more she mocks my methods the more I want to just prove her wrong. I want to show some results from my studies but I haven’t been at it very long honestly.”
<+Blackfyre> <Fiona> moves over to snatch the rock out of the air, throwing it away from the group, and begins to guide Isabella off. “I’ll show you where the gym is. Also, you’re not impressing anyone with your crap, Lab Boy.”
<+Chezz> Isabella looks Fiona and smiles. “I sorta find him interesting. He reminds me of something like a… hmmm how do I say it in a nice way? Mad scientist?” She looks at Christopher and smiles. “No offense.” Then turns back to Fiona again. “Thanks, I’ll follow you there. Are you looking to also work out?”
<+Blackfyre> <Fiona> “Yeah, you can say that.”
<+Nickolas> Christopher smiles and waves and walks back into the compound. He comes out a few minutes later wearing his shorts, running shoes and headband again and takes off around the track.
<+Chezz> Isabella follows Fiona to the gym. Walking right behind her.
<+Blackfyre> <Fiona> ignores Chris and goes into the gym, beginning to work out with weights.
<+Chezz> Isabella looks back to Chris and smiles and waves to him. Then follows Fiona into the gym and stares first at the equipment for a few seconds. Then begins to go work out with the weights.
<+Nickolas> Christopher runs a few laps around the track then stops and begins to do a variety of other cardio. He does some pushups, situps, jumping jacks. After he finishes with those he starts doing a variety of other exercises to improve his agility. After a while he goes to try to move some tires to make a track but he can’t lift them so he grabs hoola hoops instead and lays them out to skip between.
