Wukei

A Vampire in New York

Wukei

A letter is deposited, almost magically, before each character, their name written neatly on the envelope.

Opening the envelope, one finds the following message:

Quote:

To Whom it May Concern:

You have been summoned by the Prince of New York. Should you refuse this invitation, the consequences shall be dire. Please be there promptly today at midnight. We cannot guarantee her mood will be pleasant should you be tardy.


The map to the Prince's abode is on the back.
Corthos

I arrive a few minutes before midnight. I'm wearing my standard dark blue long sleeved shirt and black slacks. My sholder length black hair is unbound, and my bright green eyes are darting warily.
Hawkeye

Loki arrives about fifteen minutes after midnight, she's fashionably late for everything.
Lykan

Milo arrives a little early, pulling the hood of his sweatshirt up over his head and backing against a wall, waiting for something to happen
Wukei


A vampire wearing a blue turtleneck and black slacks answers the door. He smiles at the three. Welcome. She's waiting for you. Please, follow me. He leads them upstairs and opens a ddoor, gesturing them in.

Inside, the first thing one might notice is the window spanning the entirity of the back wall. The second is that every iinch of the other three walls is covered with some form of blade. She has been wise enough to encase these blades, however. Sitting beside the desk is one more sword, with a piece of broken wood strapped to the hilt. The power this sword emminates suggests almost telepathically that should any unholy being try to touch it, they'd immediately burst into flames.



Sitting in front of the window is a woman with pumpkin-coloured hair wearing a finely taloured suit that looks like it doesn't belong, for some reason. The strangest thing about her, though, is her perfectly ebony skin. She moves her sunglasses down her nose slightly to gaze at the group with teal eyes before removing the sunglasses completely. Well, you made it. Albeit, late. She glances at Loki as she states this. In the future, my dear, it would be wise not to anger a Justicar. Especially one who dislikes Toreador.

She looks around at the group and motions. Four chairs immediately appear, as if through magic, behind the three. She looks up at a young man she's been speaking to. Please, Rafe, have a seat, as well, if you would. She glances back to the others and motions for them to sit. You should introduce yourselves. Your companions, as far as I know, don't know you.
Hawkeye

Loki bites back a comment about not liking toreadors, she takes a seat airily "I'm sure that an introduction is not needed by me, they should know who I am."
Kyrian

Rafe nods and takes a seat, waiting to hear from the others first.
Lykan

Milo sits, bowing his head slightly as a sign of feigned respect. His voice is a gravelly growling sound, carrying a Russian accent

I am Milo Oryolov. It is a pleasure to meet you acquaintances.


He looks at the woman out of the corner of his eye, trying to identify what the hell she was through Auspex.
Corthos

"Well I guess I will start. My name is Delicvent. And I have know idea who you all are."
Hawkeye

Loki looks at Anderson in a certain way, and widens her eyes ever so slightly. She shivers and shifts uncomfortably in her chair "I apologize for turning up late Prince." she says in a slightly meek tone.
Kyrian

And as mentioned already, I'm Rafe.
Corthos

I dont' beat around the bush. So, why are we here?

He shifts forward slightly in his chair.

Is money involved?
Wukei

She smirks at the now timid Toreador before turning her attention back to the one asking for money. Not out to save the world, eh? Just out to save your pocketbook?

Money is involved. Don't get greedy, Gypsy. You'll know how much if you complete your mission.
Kyrian

Rafe sits back, and his left sleeve pulls back a little to display part of a tattoo on his wrist.
Hawkeye

Loki regains her composure somewhat "What have you called us here to do?"
Lykan

Milo chuckles

The world is at stake?
Corthos

Belive it or not, greed is not my motivation. I just follow the principle of risk vs. reward. If you cant provide enough to cover my risk, this meeting is irelevant. I have other...projects I could pursue tonight.
Wukei

When I'm involved, it seems the world is always at risk...

She frowns at the Ravnos. Don't lie. Greed is always the motivation of a Gypsy. As it usually is with Assamites. But while a Gypsy may gather a hord, I--being an Assamite--have gathered a larger one. Your pay will be grand. Much better than you can hope to make in your little game you play.

She looks among the four. The job is rather simple. Natasha?

A faerie is suddenly standing on Lee's desk holding four folders.


She flies around, handing the folders to their guests. On the front of the folder is a picture of a girl that looks about fifteen that seems almost to be the Prince herself (who only looks about 17-1Cool. The thing she lacks is the ebony skin. And instead of the Prince's teal eyes, the girl's are golden.

Kyrian

Rafe looks over the picture, nodding.
Corthos

He thumbs the file quickly.

You mainly get files like this on a mission of death. Why, then, do you want your offspring dead?
Hawkeye

Loki sits back a little "I'm assuming that you want her to be found?"
Lykan

Milo leans back in the chair, raising an eyebrow though this act is probably obscured by the tangled mass of black hair obscuring the top half of his face.

... Artemis's student? What about her?
Wukei

She frowns. The Gypsy is right. This is not a lost and found mission, this is a target and kill mission. She frowns slightly. Though I prefer you not use the term 'offspring.'

The Assamite, Artemis, should have killed her. That was his job. Instead he took her under his wing. Though he hasn't spoken to her since she's shown her 'other half,' so to speak. She is neither vampire nor werewolf. She's some mixed...thing. Something that is not natural to either world.

So I'm sending you out to deal with her. It shouldn't be too hard. It's one child.
Hawkeye

Loki raises an eyebrow "Simple as that? You do know what her powers are reported to be?"
Lykan

Milo snickers slightly

One child said to be more powerful than her mentor.

He leans forward again, eying Lee

Where's the harm in a crossbred? I have seen worse abominations sculpted from the flesh of beasts and men that seem much worse than this.
Corthos

One child? Shes your child. That makes her dangerous. She is also Torches child. That makes very dangerous. And, she has been trained by Artemis. That makes her deadly. She is not just a child.
Kyrian

Rafe shivers slightly at the thought of search and kill.
Lykan

Who's the hunter?
Hawkeye

"And who's going to protect the likes of me against said hunter?"
Corthos

If you really belived that, not all of us would be here. Tell us why you really called this meeting. Oh, and Milo, any one can see that freaks are fine. There was obviously another reason. And I bet her curent bed buddy is the one whos gonna babysit us. Am I right?
Kyrian

Rafe grins to himself. So this would be fun. Haven't even left and they're already freaking out.
Wukei

She frowns at the Ravnos. He's being used elsewhere. I'm sending Rafe with you. He's familiar with being around vampires without killing them. He was trained by one.

I must warn you, Cain is rather fond of him. Hurt him, and I will not be responsible for his actions.


She clears her throat and looks about at the group. I'm sending you as a team because I don't believe one of you can handle it. There will be well-versed vampires that don't wish to be involved ready to help should they need to be involved. I am testing you for other things. If you're looking for your heart's desires, should it be money, fame, or whatever...we can offer it all. If you prove yourself against this girl, then you'll be set for the rest of your unlife.
Hawkeye

"And if we don't come back no one cares. I see exactly how this works."
Corthos

He ponders for a moment.

I will agree to that, though I dont think you can provide anything I cant get for myself.
Kyrian

I'm in.
Lykan

Milo nods, considering their mission

Why us?
Corthos

Thats a very good question, Milo. Why indeed?
Lykan

Milo nods, leaning back in his chair again

Do you know where we might be able to look?
Hawkeye

Loki leans slightly forward, her chin on one hand.
Wukei

Lee closes her eyes for a moment before looking up at the group. St Nicholas Avenue and 179th.
Kyrian

Rafe nods. In his mind he was already mapping out where to go.
Lykan

Milo nods

That's all I needed to know.
Hawkeye

Loki raises an eyebrow "Is that where we can find her, or where we can get further information on her location?"
Corthos

Knowing Nakaira, its where we can find the target. Isn't that right, fae friend?
Wukei

Get out before I let your insides out.
Lykan

Milo stands, bows slightly, and moves to exit the room/building
Corthos

Goodby, Lee. He stands up and leaves. Are we traveling together? I have a car.
Hawkeye

Loki follows, to Delicvent "So have I, I'll meet you there."
Corthos

That sounds good. I shall wait with bated breath. Steps out, and as he climbs into his car, he paints a small symbol on the wall. He then drives off towards the address.
Lykan

Milo heads to his own car, and drives to a place a few blocks away from the address, parking there and walking the rest of the way.
Corthos

As I pass Milo, I activate Chimerstry and my car simply vanishes. Even the noise is gone. I drive the rest of the way, and wait, parked out of the way.
Kyrian

Rafe stands and bows to Lee. I won't fail you. He leaves, deciding to walk over.
Hawkeye

Loki does much the same as Milo did, but parking in a different place.
Wukei

Outside in the streets of said address there's a large silver werewolf with a strange orange stripe running down it's back ripping the head off one of a trio of vampires trying to fight it off. It doesn't seem to notice the group drive up.
Lykan

Milo watches from behind any sort of available cover, snickering silently at the spectacle
Kyrian

Rafe watches with a slight scowl, and starts searching through his inventory.
Corthos

This must be our "girl".

He draws his gun, and steps out of the car. Seeing as she is distracted, he lets his Chimerstry fade. He drops behind the nearest cover.
Hawkeye

Loki stays in the shadows and bites her lip as she watches, she draws her two guns, but knows full well they'll have little effect on a werewolf.
Uberblah

One of the remaining two vampires from the trio goes in to bite the werewolf and perform an energy drain on it.
Wukei

Very bad idea, as the vampire now feels as though his insides are burning. Luckily, he only got a small amount of garou blood in his system before the werewolf swatted him away like a fly toward the new group.


She takes long enough to grab the remaining vampire near her and bites his neck, tearing his throat out. At the same time, she seems to be drinking his blood.

She then turns her attentions to the Brujah and his new companions. She looks at the group, curiously.
Hawkeye

Loki uses heightened senses and ducks behind the nearest cover while still being able to see the werewolf.
Uberblah

The vampire doubles over a little and grimmaces. Then his quick healing kicks in and he straightens up a little, pulling out an iron sword that's edged in silver. He slashes twice at the werewolf.
Corthos

He fires two shots at the Garou. He uses Chimerstery to make it feel like silver.

I can't kill her with this, just distract her. Anyone think to bring silver? No, because no-one told us we would fight Garou tonight! I hate not having information!
Lykan

Milo just watches

She's not really a garou... Don't you listen?
Kyrian

Rafe draws dual pistols from his coat sleeves. Time for some Aequitas.
Wukei

The werewolf dodges the blades and uses some form of skill to dodge the bullets. She transforms back into her human self, revealing a face much like that of Lee's, only not ebony. Stop now, and I won't harm you. She draws two desert eagles from their hilts at her sides.
Lykan

Milo holds up his hands, showing nothing in them

Damn... Stuck between a rock in a hard place without a shotgun... I knew I left something in the car...
Corthos

He lowers his gun.

Well, this is strange. First you slaughter two kindred, then you call for an end to the fighting. What could you want? (Aside, to Milo.)Just because shes not fully Garou, doesn't mean shes not partly Garou. A werewolf is a werewolf is a werewolf. I don't care about the vampire side. That just means she has two beasts to fight.
Uberblah

The vampire just holds his sword up and glare's at the Lee-like person.
Like I can trust you.
Kyrian

Rafe spins his pistols idly and waits.
Hawkeye

Loki bites her lip and stays in her current position.
Wukei

Since no one has struck she turns her attention on the Brujah. I was hired to kill them. You were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Kyrian

I feel that I'm never in the wrong place at the wrong time. Veritas and Aequitas have their reasonings for all things.
Corthos

Thats funny. We were hired to kill you. Now if you will just hold still...


He seems to run at her with his gun blazing.
Uberblah

Then you shall die.
The vamp lunges at the woman and tries to run the sword through her body. Should he miss, he'll hit the ground, roll, and spring up trying to slash her on the way up.
Wukei

She brings up her arms to deter the shots only to find out they're not real. But not before she's stabbed through the gut by a sword. She coughs up blood, grimacing at the feel of the burning at the wound.

Stop, she says in a commanding voice that carries magical weight against all of the vampires. They can no longer come near her, and the Brujah is hurt for being so close, pushed forcefully from the invisible area.
Kyrian

Rafe lifts his right arm, coat sleeve pulled back to reveal 'Aequitas' tattooed onto his wrist. I believe you are the one that needs to stop.
Uberblah

The Brujah stumbles back a little farther from the invisible area from the force of the push then rights himself. The exiting of the sword probably didn't feel too great to the woman either.
Corthos

Well well well. A vampire, a werewolf, and a bonafide hunter to boot. I'm starting to think this might be fun. I still think she doesn't have enough to pay me for a bounty like this.

He steps well back from the wall.

Well missy, tell us why you want to prolong the fight and extend your life.
Hawkeye

Loki curses for not being sharp enough to do some sort of action in the last minute. She trains her guns on the woman, ready to shoot if any further offensive action is taken by the rest of the group.
Lykan

Milo looks around, ready to bolt when the situation arises.
Wukei

She holds her side, wincing from the aggravated damage. I don't want to hurt you.

What have I done that any of you here aren't willing to copy? I killed a target, and apparently you are willing to do the same.
Corthos

Thats beside the point. As you say, you are a target. It dosen't matter what you did. Its a job. Now, can we get this over with? I want to go steal things from the MET while I'm in town.

He aims at the girl again.
Kyrian

Thanks, now I know where to go after I'm done with this.
Corthos

Is that a very thinly veiled threat?
Kyrian

Does it matter?
Corthos

It does to me, tāmpit. I need to know if I'm gonna have to avoid security guards and you at the same time.
Kyrian

I'd watch your tongue. I never heard the order that I couldn't hurt you.
Uberblah

Why were my brethren your targets? We've done nothing wrong.
Corthos

Hey, now. You are the one that is talking about hurting. I said avoid. No need to get angry.
Hawkeye

Loki sighs and rolls her eyes. She stands up, guns lowered and she tries not to let the guns be seen. She cocks her head at the woman "Y'know we are an organised bunch of people, we're just trying to lull you into a false sense of security..."
Corthos

False sense of security my aunt ieşire bruscă! We met up like an hour ago!
Lykan

Milo sighs

And were essentially given the option of trying to kill you, or get killed
ourselves.

I just wanted to make squirrels randomly attack people tonight.
Hawkeye

Loki glances at Delicvent "Please, stop flirting with him," she waves a hand in Rafe's direction "and concentrate on the part werewolf, part vampire part whatever that is, in fact, right in front of us. She's probably pissing herself laughing at this feeble attempt on her life and I can't say I blame her.

Can we please focus on the task in hand?"
Corthos

Tell him to stop with all the threats. I was not going to steal from him personaly. He's just being a tāmpit for the fun of it.

Turning to Rafe; Eu vrea tu trecut de la will deceda!
Hawkeye

Loki flicks her hair back, not that it's needed, just for show "I am not you're personal messenger, and if you're going to have a lovers tiff do it elsewhere so you don't embarrass me."
Wukei

The girl does indeed seem quite amused by the group. Perhaps they would kill one another. In the meantime, she decides to answer the Brujah's question, looking directly at him. Apparently your companions made a very important Ventrue angry. It's not too hard. They have sticks so far up their asses that they're spitting splinters.
Uberblah

Bitch!
The word is practically hissed.
Lykan

Milo snickers a listening to the conversations
