<Zoelie> is in the living room, researching on her tablet how to best acquire, support and encourage the growth of wolfsbane

<Erin Summers> comes downstairs, yawning and making her way into the kitchen for some tea. She then comes back out into the livingroom with it and takes a seat by Zoelie. “Hey.”

<Cecilia> is in the kitchen, looking for aspirin.

<Zoelie> looks up and smiles “Hey there Erin. How you doin?”

<Zoelie> glances at Cecilia

<Cecilia> “I have a headache, and thought these would help.”

<Cecilia> “Also, I’m getting the feeling I’m being watched all the time.”

<Erin Summers> looks over at Cecilia. “I have something that might help, if it’s a natural cause.”, she shrugs and then looks back to Zoelie. “I am well. Still researching, been practicing some self-defense too.”

<Zoelie> smirks “Oh yeah? ” throws some play punches at erin “You gon be kickin all our asses now, huh tough girl?”

<Cecilia> rummages for a glass, before pouring some water into it and tossing the aspirin back when she finds both. “What do you think can help? Provided my headache is natural.”

<Zoelie> “So you feel like you’re watched even here in the chantry, Cecilia?”

<Erin Summers> chuckles faintly. “After the last incident and almost dying… again… that I would rather avoid that if possible.”, she looks over at Cecila. “I brewed up a potion from some old texts… supposed to have healing properties.”

<Zoelie> “Cuz if that’s the case maybe we need to talk about gettin this place more secure.”

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ would be the first to pull up to the Chantry with Maryska in tow, however she preferred, either on the motorcycle or through her own method of travel. He’d disembark from the motorcycle and glance around as if looking..or rather smelling for anything off. He’d then nod to her. “The people here are of various backgrounds and not all of

them are Mages. They have all ben helpful though.”

<Cecilia> nods. “If my headache doesn’t go away, I’ll give it a try.”

<Sascha> arrives at the Chantry with Ramirez, nodding her thanks for the ride as she gets out of the car.

<Ashe> Arrives with Ramirez, eyeing the old plantation house curiously as he gets out of the car. He couldn’t help but feel that he was falling head first into a rabbit hole… and would get his head stuck.

<Cecilia> comes out into the living room, settling down on a sofa.

~*Ramirez*~ steps out of the car after parking and nods to Sascha like ‘no problem’. He’d look at Ashe as he stepped out. “There’s some overgrowth since none of us know what we’re all totally doing except the verbena. Jesse is nice. I know this is going to be kind of confusing for you, and probably Ethan’s new friend too.. but you’ll hopefully get used to us.

There’s a few things going on here but this is our chantry, even if we allow some others to come in who are not Mages. You said you wanted to know the truth, so you’re kinda getting it all at once. Sometimes though, it’s better to just dive in, no?”

<Sascha> chuckles a little bit at that and passes very close to Ashe, close enough that he should have felt her breathe and yet there was none. “There are some things more important than … what we might be.”

::Maryska would arrive with Ethan, either on foot or following him by bike if he was driving, chances are she was following him on foot.::

<Erin Summers> waves to those coming inside, observing them from her comfy chair. “Hey, Ramirez, what’s up?”

<Zoelie> looks over at the new arrivals, stands up to greet them. “Bonne lannuit, Ramirez, who all you bring home this time?”

<Cecilia> looks up at Ramirez, then at the new arrivals. “I assume they’re housebroken and well-trained?”

<Ashe> Nods to Ramirez, “Yeah, it’s a bit much all at once. I… think I may need to have a stiff drink when I get a chance.” He shivers at the lack of breath and eyes Sascha curiously before looking to Ramirez, “Not Mages? What others are there?” He wilts a little and grumbles under his breath, “yes… I’m house broken…”

<Cecilia> smiles. “Excellent.”

<Cecilia> might have heard him? Or not.

<Sascha> looks Cecilia over but remians quiet on that comment before observing Zoelie and Erin. She then looks back toward Ramirez and simply waits patiently.

~*Ramirez*~ would hold the front door open for Ashe and Sascha. “Alright, drinks are in the kitchen, which is off to the left.” He’d say tat to Ashe. He’d then look around. “Zoelie, Cecilia.. this is Ashe of the Akashic Brotherhood.. though he’s very new to stuff. Ashe..this is Zoelie, Cecilia and Erin.” He’d look back at the others. “Ethan is

bringing someone by too, and if you guys don’t know Sascha…she’s Sascha. Cassian should be here soon too. We have some things to talk about and it’s going to go over the new people’s heads..but they need some allies, so..here they are.”

::Maryska looks around at the people within and then at Ethan.:: “This is a safe place?” ::she examines the building from the inside, and then looks at the person that mentions house broken and quirks a brow, shaking her head she just finds a chair to sit at and listen to the various people talking.::

<Cecilia> inclines her head to Ashe, an Italian accent coloring her words. “Ah, I see. It’s quite the pleasure to meet you.”

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ nods to Maryska assuredly. “I stay here. They have been most hospitable to me and will help you out too if you want.” He’d head in with her and Ramirez was doing the intros. He’d just hop in at the last to gesture to her. “This is Maryska. She says she is kinfolk and I sense the wyld in her. She could use some friends.”

<Ashe> Was about to wander to the kitchen before Ramirez gave the introductions, forgetting his manners in his desire to have that stiff drink, but he paused at the words. He was of what now? He’d been looking for that group, but he hardly felt a part of something he didn’t have experience with. Still he smiled and turned back to face the group and gave a formal eastern style bow, “I am Ashton Blake, it is an honour to meet you all.”

<Zoelie> puts on her blinged out specs and then holds out her hand to ashe and sascha in turn “Welcome, Ashe of the Akashic Brotherhood and Sascha who is Sascha. There’s sweet tea in the fridge if anyone is so inclined.”

<Zoelie> “My name is Zoelie, I’m a virtual adept.”

~*Ramirez*~ “I’m who I said I was, and a Euthanatos.”

<Cecilia> “I am Cecilia di Pasqua, of no particular group.”

<Sascha> looks at Zoelie, her arms currently folded over her chest. She tilts her head, as if debating, before deciding to be polite and proper in their home she had been invited into and shakes the woman’s hand. She makes no effort to warm it, but there is a power there in her touch that is easily felt. “Sascha. I’m a vampire. I feel more detail than that is not required.”

<Ashe> “Ah… maybe I should mention that I’ve never met and Akashic. I am… just driven to find them by… well, what I am seems to want that.” He shrugged, unable to really explain it better than that as he rose to a standing position. “I don’t know what a Euthanatos or Virtual adept are… and… seriously? A vampire?”

<Cecilia> “I’m afraid so.”

<Erin Summers> watches and listens, before speaking up herself. “I’m Erin Summers. Amenti, which… lets just go with Immortal.”

<Zoelie> eyebrows raise as she feels the coldness of Sascha’s grip but then her features seem to relax and she does return the strength of the grip as much as was given. “Ah, no, I suppose not. Thanks for being up front.”

<Zoelie> notices ethan and maryska and smiles at them “Well hey there Ethan long time no see. Welcome Maryska.” will hold out her hand to shake with maryska too.

::Maryska looks at Ethan, and then Zoelie, she looked like she was about to say something to him but then nods to the warm greeting.:: “It is a pleasure.” she moves forward and extends her right hand, the woman wearing a black leather jacket, surcoated in a blue denim vest, wearing black denim pants and snub tipped riding boots, her head capped with a wide brim hat, and her eyes hidden by a pair of mountaineering

sunglasses with leather blinders. “Zoelie…I am not sure what a Virtual Adept is…” her ukranian accent coloured with a texan drawl.

<Sascha> smiles at Ashe, revealing her fangs for a moment. “As I said before, I’ve already eaten and I prefer criminals anyway, sinners specifically.”

<Zoelie> “Think of it like a hacker with magic.”

■► Cassian ◄■ so ever politely knocks on the front door to the house. He wondered what was going on currently, even as he was getting out of reading some boring Tremere thing he didn’t want to.

<Zoelie> to sascha “Well no shortage of sinners in this town…but that does make me curious…” looks at the door “Does a party on a Sunday night qualify?”

<Cecilia> looks to Sascha with a slight degree of wariness now.

<Zoelie> goes to open the door

~*Ramirez*~ “I suppose it depends on what people feel are sins.”

<Sascha> smirks a bit at Zoelie. “I think we both know it’s more complicated than that. But I find it rather eases the conscience of some of those I work with for them to know I do not take innocent life. I even let the mugger in the park live after he attacked me.”

::Maryska would nod to Zoelie’s response and look momentarily interested and then looks at Ashe.:: “Have you had many moments where you may feel just a little out of your element?” ::she gave a soft smile as if she was expressing the exact same sentiment.::

<Zoelie> opens the door and sees Cassian, does the looking back over her shoulder thing at Sascha then looks back at Cassian “Well hey there, Cassian, come on in. Join the party.”

■► Cassian ◄■ nods and waves to Zoelie. “Greetings and thank you.” He’d step in and then glances over at Sascha and two new people. “Oh, this has my interest. What is going on?”

<Ashe> Rubs that little spot between his eyebrows where headaches form and nods at Maryska, “I feel like I may have been slipped drugs and this is some kind of weird coma dream. Except I think I’m awake.”

<Erin Summers> looks around at the people present and inclines her head toward the chair beside her.

<Sascha> nods her head politely to Cassian, but has a soft smirk on her features all the same.

<Zoelie> “Don’t you worry, Ashe, we got you. Erin here knows how to cure those headaches.”

::Maryska nods and takes a sip of her beer.:: “It’s no dream, yer awake, this is all happening.” ::she slips over a seat next to him.:: “Take it easy, relax, never quite bin in a place like this before but take a deep breath n focus.” ::she would look around at the various people.:: “above all, keep yer head, smiles don’t mean friends.”

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ takes a seat and looks around. “So…what exactly is going on?”

■► Cassian ◄■ closes the door behind him. WARDS. And then goes and takes a seat. “I hope you are well, Sascha. It has been a little while at least.”

■► Cassian ◄■ looks over at Ashe and then Maryska. “Hello, new people. I am Cassian. Nice to meet you.”

<Zoelie> will introduce everybody around again for cassian’s benefit so we can move the scene.

<Ashe> blinks slowly… again, ” Wait… you are… no, I’m good. I am sure the headache will go away on it’s own.” He watches as Maryska sits down beside him, was she implying that these people weren’t safe? Well that was… likely, “Great… Well I never wanted a nice safe life or to be able to feel comfortable.” He chuckles at his poor joke and watches the man with white hair enter, “Hello… Old man… I’m Ashton Blake, or Ashe…

Apparently Akashic, new, and… entirely confused. ” He nodded to the woman beside him, “She’d Maryska and…. something called a kinfolk…. and apparently my new bodyguard.” He winks a little playfully at the woman

<Cecilia> gives Cassian a polite nod, before looking to Maryska.

■► Cassian ◄■ studied Ashe a moment and then moved his gaze to Maryska. He studied her and then smiled to them both. “Welcome to the fan club.”

<Zoelie> “Well she’s a cute bodyguard in her cowboy hat, kinda wondering if she has some six shooters in under that vest or what.”

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ “I used to. I miss those guns.”

<Ashe> rubbed the back of his head and gave Cassian a curious look, “Fan club? Are you the guy in charge here?” It was possible, but then he was blushing as he looked reflexively at Maryska as Zoelie called her cute and he realized that yes, she was cute.

<Zoelie> laughs “You miss them? Well, I guess guns have got a bit more complicated since your day ridin the range.”

<Zoelie> “i think it’s cassian’s fan club.”

::Maryska chuckled a bit at Ashe’s quips and then looked at Ethan as he asked his question.:: “some Bruhahah or somethin’r other, not sure, people keep pourin in like this is the end all be all place t’be.” she looks again at Ashe. “you payin me?” looking at Cassian and Cecilia as they seemed to be focusing a little towards her direction. “evenin…” ::shaking her head at Zoelie.:: “Nah, no guns, not on me, too loud, grabs

attention.”

<Sascha> smiles a little at Cassian. “I am well enough. Still busy hunting. You?”

<Zoelie> smirks because maryska is amusing.

Sparks: walks down into the chantry and grins looking around quietly.

<Erin Summers> chuckles faintly and shrugs. “I have gotten used to all this. I really enjoy living here, so interesting.”

<Zoelie> “me I’m just not a big fan of killing folks.”

<Zoelie> “And that’s what guns seem to do.”

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ “I have used more modern guns, but those took some finesse. Also, I suppose it’s just part of the era I was born into and raised.”

<Ashe> Laughs lightly at Maryska, “Well, unless you like beer, sake, swords, or bad B-movies…. I don’t have much to pay with at the moment. I don’t suppose I can get by on my good looks and charms?”

<Zoelie> “Well hey there sparks, how you doin. This is Sparks, folks, she is kinda like Erin.”

<Cecilia> goes to make herself some tea, looking to Sparks with an arched brow.

■► Cassian ◄■ nods to Sascha. “Oh, the same. Hunting for information and researching here or there. After David’s little game, the hospital is a mess though so that is a bit distracting. We’re also trying to find a bane werewolf that apparently hates our flowers still.”

Sparks “Hey Zoelie what’s up?” Her seeming to wave to Zoelie and her friend.

Sparks: “I’m doing good I’ve been keeping busy.”

■► Cassian ◄■ nods to Maryska and to Ashe. “I apologize that we must be confusing you both. You are a shifter of some sort..(He guided to Maryska) and you (he said to Ashe) are a Mage? Nice to meet you both.”

<Sascha> wrinkles her freckled nose. “Lupines are never much fun to deal with. But if it is corrupted, I will assist if needed.”

<Zoelie> “yeah Jesse is gonna help with growing wolfsbane I think.”

<Zoelie> to sparks “Well Ramirez brough a whole party over, says we got something to talk about.”

Sparks: “Oh a party with like cakes,”

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ looks at Sascha. “I’m fine to deal with.”

<Ashe> Made a small noise of confusion, “Wait… werewolves are real too?” He looked between the people gathered there and rubs the back of his head, “Oh boy…Yeah, I’m a Mage, I guess.” He nodded to Cassian, “And I have no clue what is going on.”

■► Cassian ◄■ nods. “He seems to have an allergy to wolfsbane. We’re growing some around our home too, just because of it.”

<Zoelie> “Well there’s some lemon pie in the fridge, no cake though.”

::Maryska looks at Cassian and shrugs. :: “Call me what you want, I am unable to shift forms, I am of that lineage. ” ::she looked to Ashe:: “looks.. Thats one thing, but you mentioned swords… What you own many? ”

Sparks: “I’ll be back I have pie to eat then.” She giggle winks to Zoelie

<Zoelie> to ashe “Yeah werewolves are definitely real, dude.”

<Zoelie> smirks at sparks “bring me a piece.”

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ “Yes, we’re real… and I think Cora is terrified of me.”

<Sascha> looks to Ethan and smirks a bit. “I did not mean to offend. And probably. It seems that anything that shapeshifts, myself included, gives her the ‘heebie jeebies’.”

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ looks thoughful a moment and nods. “Well, at least that’s more comforting, I ..think? What do you shapeshift into?”

<Ashe> lifts a hand to wave off Maryska with a soft laugh, “Own many swords, no. I don’t tend to keep them long. I forge them and sell themmm……” Ashe trailed off as he slowly turns his head to Ethan and blinks at the man, “Ah…. vampires.. and … werewolves… I… really need that drink.”

Sparks smirks at this her going to get two slices of pie and even starts to put whipped cream on each with the shape of a smiley face on it…with a Unibrow…sparks can be a bit unpredictable but tried to be a bit amusing as well. Her coming back and bringing her and Zoelie’s slice of pie and forks. “Here you are.”

<Sascha> holds up a hand and her skin ripples, and spines grow out from her hand like hairs before retreating back underneath the skin. “I can become whatever I choose to be. But I specialize in body weaponry.”

<Zoelie> blinks “Cora? That girl don’t seem scared of nothin.”

<Zoelie> takes her slice and checks out the smiley “Wow this smiley need to get some electrolysis.”

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ watches curiously. “Oh, I see. So you can imitate people too?”

::Maryska looks at Sascha for a moment and tilts her head.:: “Neat trick…really neat.” ::she looks at Ashe for a moment, really kinda looking him over.:: “Blade smith, think I’ll need t’hire you, blades I use.” ::she winks at him, but the sunglasses would more than likely hide that motion, they were pretty big and those leather side caps didn’t really let anyone see anything else.

<Sascha> nods to Ethan. “I can look like other people.”, she glances over toward Cassian briefly. “It is part of why some others fear us so.”

Sparks “It has a bad case of unibrow quick somebody get the scalpel.” She yells this out as if this was a real surgery. “Stat before this girl dies in shame.”

<Zoelie> takes a big bite of pie, obliterating the unibrow “Mmm think we’re good.”

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ “Cora is totally afraid of me. I can see it easily.”

<Zoelie> to ethan “Well uh…you give her any reason to be?”

<Erin Summers> looks over to Ethan. “I do believe she has had some issue in her past with a werewolf personally that makes her skiddish. After being close enough to see the inside of the last one’s mouth I can kind of understand the sentiment.”

Sparks “Yay master surgeon of the year goes to Zoelie for saving this girls life” she points to the pie when she says ‘girls life’

Ashe catches sight of the spines sprouting out of the woman’s hand and he quite suddenly had a very good idea of why shape changers were frightening. Oh shit. He was sitting in a good with werewolves, vampires, immortals, and people that could sprout spines from there body at will… The young man swallowed nervously, maybe this was too much, “Actually… I’m going to go grab some fresh air.” Ashe stands and heads for the door rather

quickly. The night air couldn’t come fast enough. At least he wasn’t running

<Amy (Wraith)> snickers from her corner of the room. “Well, having been EATEN by said werewolf… I can also kinda relate.”

<Cecilia> takes a sip, looking to Ashe, then to Sascha, standing up quickly.

<Zoelie> to amy “hey now, ethan did not eat you.”

<Zoelie> seems to be talking to air over in the corner for those without spirit sight.

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ smirks. “I’m not saying I’m not scary in the other forms or even this one sometimes. I don’t blame her.”

::Maryska looks at Ethan and gestures to the quickly exiting.:: “I’m gonna go for a walk.” ::She’d get up and saunter towards the door after the panicked looking asian man, her fingers slipping into the front pockets as her thumbs hooked into the belt loops, nudging the slowly closing door open with the tip of her foot and walking out of the place.

~*Ramirez*~ “I’ll be right back. Maybe ‘reality’ was a bit too real for him at the moment.” He was used to being pretty jaded anymore after some of the shit he had seen and well, lived and died through. It didn’t mean though that he didn’t remember being overwhelmed by how ‘real’ it all was.”

<Amy (Wraith)> reaches over and grabs the door, forcing it closed with a shove. (to those without the ability to see ghosts, it seems to close itself.)

<Zoelie> “Aww I guess we scared him off.”

Sparks sits down and seems to eat pie quietly

■► Cassian ◄■ “Maybe it is a bit much to process.”

<Sascha> rolls her shoulders faintly. “He should consider it like… a hazing. But people take different times to sort things out.”

<Zoelie> “I guess so, I mean, it was a little weird when I first awakened. Like there were moments of thinking, nah girl, you need a psychiatrist, not another person who believes you magically hacked that professor’s account.”

<Zoelie> “But then I kinda found both…so…it turned out alright.”

■► Cassian ◄■ “I’d love to have hacked any of my professors’ accounts. That would make me a believer right there. Of course when I found out about such things, it was well before all this.”

Sparks: “ya I’ve been meaning to meet a whole bunch of people I think I only know Zoelie around here right now unless I’m being stupid and forgot someone.”

<Sascha> nods her head. “I was eased into being what I am much more than others usually are. Some are just tossed into the deep end and we just keep those that make it back to the surface so to speak.”

<Zoelie> “Well there’s Ramirez and Elena.”

<Zoelie> that was to sparks

Sparks: “oh ya those two.”

Sparks: there’s a spirit over there Zoelie *she points at the door that was forced shut her going over to the door.

■► Cassian ◄■ totally wasn’t surprised Amy shut the door. He was rather keen on doing the same thing and having some rituals on hand.

<Amy (Wraith)> chuckles faintly. “She is aware. A few of them can see me… they all know about me. And The door needs to be shut whenever possible. There are wards on the building that only work if it’s sealed.”

<Erin Summers> nods and waves. “Yeah… noted on that too. We would prefer the doors stay closed, but if there is trouble there are alarms and such. Plus, Ramirez and a werewolf and another Mage can most certainly handle most things.”

Sparks goes up to Amy and seems to checks on the spirit she isn’t sure what to do.

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ “It keeps avoiding me. I sit around here for days and nothing happens. I leave to go get some stuff or go hunting and there it showed up. It’s kinda pissing me off.”

<Amy (Wraith)> looks at Sparks and raises her hands a bit. “What? Is there a problem?”

<Erin Summers> looks over at Ethen and nods. “It’s obvious it does not want to try to fight you head on.”

<Zoelie> “Yeah you must be too tough for it, Ethan.”

<Sascha> chuckles faintly. “Well, it’s smart. But there are ways we could make it believe he had left… and catch it by surprise.”

<Sascha> “I mean, if you do not mind my help.”

<Zoelie> to amy “I got you. I will remember to shut the door behind folks when they come knockin.”

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ looks at Sascha, so interested in that idea. Oh yeah.

Sparks: “oh I’m just curious of you.” She says this softly and a bit nervously to the spirit

■► Cassian ◄■ smirks. “I am sure it is avoiding you too, but I’m up for hearing suggestions as well. I like some good ol mischief now and then when it fools the right people.”

<Cecilia> returns her tea to the kitchen.

<Amy (Wraith)> looks to Sparks, tilting her head a bit. “I am one of the Mages. I live here… well, I suppose now I haunt here. I got attacked by the werewolf they are talking about and I abandoned my physical form.”

Sparks: “well I’m a Mage of sorts as well but I can see dead things very well.” She smiles softly to the women.

<Sascha> nods. “I could turn into Ethan. I need some of his clothes, stuff with his scent on it.”

<Zoelie> “now that’s a dangerous idea, Sascha….”

<Zoelie> “What if it comes after you?”

¤ ֎ Ethan Talbot ֎ ¤ “It won’t. It’s been avoiding me.”

<Sascha> laughs a little. “A: It’s avoiding him. So I doubt that. B: I can assume a bestial form of my own, that is about nine feet tall and very strong. I can go tow to toe with a Lupine for short periods… it still sucks. Bites hurt and hitting them just makes them stronger.”

<Zoelie> “What if it’s just you know. plotting. ”

<Zoelie> grimaces “I wouldn’t wanna get bit by that thing…”

■► Cassian ◄■ “It could be a good idea. It has been spying on us all and knows we live next door and what not. Might as well try to play it since I doubt it knows anything about Sascha.”

<Cecilia> looks at the others as she returns. “Ah. Using a secret weapon.”

■► Cassian ◄■ “We are very fortunate the wards worked well. It is eventually going to challenge them. It’s a crazy corrupted thing.”

<Erin Summers> nods her head as well. “I am studying how to infuse objects. They may be a way to amplify the Wards if they get tampered with.”

<Zoelie> “Yeah I wash gonna ask about that. Kinda need to beef up the security round here.”

■► Cassian ◄■ “That’d be a good idea. I will make some more ‘signature’ to make it more difficult to mess with too, but beyond that, it’s on you guys to do your thing.”

<Amy (Wraith)> nods in agreement before looking back to Sparks. “Are you okay?”

Sparks: “I’m good, you good?”

<Zoelie> eats the rest of her pie

<Erin Summers> looks over at Sparks curiously. “I guess maybe i don’t think of anything as weird cause i was used to weird before I was Amenti. I guess for some it would be pretty weird.”

Sparks: “its strange I know the weirdness that being Amenti is like personally.”

<Sascha> nods. “Well, one thing I understand and respect is the feeling of needing to defend your home. Besides, I will require the help of you Mages later both to perhaps catch David, and to get to where this Demon is actually located.”

■► Cassian ◄■ “I think we are figuring that out, even if it is a slow progress. I believe the water holds our key.”

<Zoelie> “Who’s David?”

■► Cassian ◄■ “He was a vampire that played both sides of the fields and tricked us all I suppose. He is an infernalist that works for the demon we are fighting against.”

<Sascha> nods to what Cassian said. “He was a traitor and an Infernalist. Now he’s a ghost.”

<Amy (Wraith)> “We saw him… at the Hospital. He’s a Spectre for sure. He was following one of the vampires… uhm… Katarina?”

<Zoelie> to amy “What’s he want with her?”

<Amy (Wraith)> makes a face. “To wear her like a prom dress?”

<Erin Summers> spits out her tea at hearing that and has to get up, excusing herself.

<Zoelie> blinks not understanding “What? like as in…some kinda Buffalo Bill weird shit?”

<Sascha> smirks. “Well, he did already skin her once and then animated the skin to attack us. So i think that qualifies.”

■► Cassian ◄■ “He has her as a fetter now, we’re pretty sure. He is obsessed with her for some reason. Apparently, she knew him before I knew her.. but whatever the story is, he took it to creeptastic measures.”

<Cecilia> blinks, looking a bit queasy and trying to hide it.

<Zoelie> contemplates her empty pie plate “Well that’s just fucking disgusting. This David gotta die…even if he already dead.”

<Sascha> nods. “It is something that I thought you all might be able to assist with… so that he can’t escape us again.”

<Zoelie> “i’ll be glad to help if i can.”

<Zoelie> stretches and yawns “Anyway if there’s anything I can do please let me know.”

<Zoelie> “Ima go get some sleep.”

<Zoelie> heads upstairs

<Erin Summers> waves to Zoelie. “Night.”

■► Cassian ◄■ “We need to figure a way to bind him. There are methods. He’s not immune to spirit attacks such as forcing him into an item or making him a prisoner to will. I don’t normally suggest those things since spirits to me are still beings who should have free wills, but some occasions like this show why we should do something.”

■► Cassian ◄■ “Also, breaking his fetters might be a good thing.”

<Cecilia> would give Zoelie a light nod before looking to Cassian. “And how do you suggest we do that?”

■► Cassian ◄■ “There are rituals and disciplines.”

<Amy (Wraith)> nods her head. “Ramirez could definately do it. Spirit and Entropy would sever the connections easily. But in this vampire’s case… it might not be totally safe for her. Entropy has a tendancy to not be a precise instrument.”

■► Cassian ◄■ “Yeah, that’s what we let happen if we need to because he’d be doing that rather raw.”

<Erin Summers> comes back through and waves to Sparks, then lightly hugs Cassian before starting to head upstairs. “I do hope the new guy is alright. I guess we will try this meeting again later, or compare notes as we cross each other.”

■► Cassian ◄■ “I’m sure he will get used to things. It is a bunch of stuff. Have a good night.” * he hugged Erin back and then waves to the others. “Goodnight.”

Sparks looks over to Erin and waves to her, the women seeming to look back at the spirit. “You know I totally get being a spirit by the way.”

<Cecilia> nods to Cassian.

<Sascha> nods in agreement. “I should go as well… but I will be in touch.”, and she takes her leave.

<Amy (Wraith)> nods to Sparks. “Yeah, you’re like Erin, right? So you spent some time on this side. Why you can still see me, because you’re in touch with the spirit world still. It makes sense. Anyway, as it seems most everyone is parting… I should go check on Ramirez.”

Sparks: “ya I’ve spent time on your side but ya I’ll see you another time.”

<Cecilia> heads off.
