PostSubject: Croix Manor   Thu Nov 12, 2015 11:54 pm

First topic message reminder :

Calling it a manor is probably a little extreme, as far as housing goes in this city. Still, the place's name is indicative of the spirit of its inhabitants: they refuse to surrender their dignity, to the point that the pretense seems a little embarrassing.

"Gold means little to me. Although... If you have any old ward-books, those are oftentimes enlightening."

Ina closes her eyes as well and is soon asleep.

"You'd have to ask Eisele. She inherited everything related to magic." Nalima looks away for a second. It was true; magical ability had been split between Noel and Eisele. Since Noel's passing, the rest of the magical belongings had passed on to Eisele.

Rexley nods and calls for Tobias. Within a short time, Valentine's room is ready, and Rexley shows her there. "I hope you sleep well, Lady Gatsby."

Yoren nods. "I'll ask her about it the next chance I get. I take it most of you have little talent for the Art?"

"I'll try. Thank you for your hospitality, Lord Rexley." She curtsies before retiring to her room for the night.

"I know some basic offensive spells, mostly related to fire. Eisele studies enchantment and healing and things of that nature. Noel... was a master at curses and darker magic. Last I heard he was dabbling in necromancy, but that was a few years ago... It's only Rexley who never bothered with magic. I don't know that he lacks the talent, though, just that he was raised in his father's ideals of being a knight," Nalima explains.

"I suppose I'm a bit of a few things. Poisoner, enchanter, mage, swordsman, warder, scholar..." He chuckles bitterly.

"I've just done the best I can to keep myself and my sister alive. Goodness knows she hasn't made that easy."

"You live a dangerous life, don't you?"

Nalima looks at Yoren thoughtfully for a while.

"Hm, yes..." She has a knowing look in her eyes, which drowns out the fierce steel that usually lies behind her stare. "A very dangerous man, you are. And so young. You have a lot ahead of you. I suggest you make the right decisions. A wrong move in the games we play, and... well, my late brother thought he knew what he was getting into. And in the end... Well, he got a lot of people into a lot of trouble."

She pats her wyvern on the neck delicately, looking anything but delicate. "I suppose it's time for me to come out of retirement. I picked up the axe... oh, it must have been sixty years ago. My, how time flies." She stretches, her formidable stature barely visible in the dark. Her body is at rest, but tensed.

"You seem like a woman of many layers, Nalima Croix. But then again," he grins "most nobles are. You seem rather dangerous yourself, if I'm frank. Your entire family seems... Dangerous. Hell, this entire rotting city."

Nalima smiles wryly. "There's danger everywhere. But the kind involving money, and butlers assassinating their masters, and spies and bribery and court games... that never was my kind of danger. In fact, I'm thinking about mercenary work."

"Oh? I dabbled in that when business got slow. It's nice when it goes well, but the conditions aren't always favourable, and neither are the folk. But at least they'll stab you in the front." He smiles again, not quite as bitter, "or try to, anyway."

"If they make it close enough to get me," Nalima says, tossing her hair, "I applaud them for it."

"There are ways to move faster than a human eye can register." Yoren states bluntly. "And ways to strike from afar, much further than any bow or ballistae."

Yoren nods "I-", he begins, but is cut off by a soft, quiet...clapping?

" Hello, Nalima Croix. Apprentice."

Yoren blanches at the voice.

A beautiful woman comes into view through the dim light of the moon.

Yoren pales even further. And he was already pretty pale to begin with. "No. Nonononono." He whispers faintly.

His voice picks back up, and his tone is commanding. "Nalima Croix, I suggest you return to the manor."

Commanding, but oh so tired-sounding.

"Elene? What are you doing here? Wait, did you say... Apprentice?"

What is going on, Nalima wonders.

"It's not a good time, Lady Cromwyll. Maybe you could come back after Noel's funeral?"

"I'm afraid not, dear. Everything has fallen into place oh so well at last..."

She turns her head towards Yoren and smiles at him.

"Yes, indeed. Little Halscreft here is...or rather WAS... my apprentice. Unfortunately... He doesn't know how to keep a civil tounge, and our relationship has deteriorated over the last few years."

Yoren just stares at Elene. His assassin's mask is shattered now, and hatred shines plain oin his face

Nalima swallows. Her eyes dart between the two of them. She doesn't know either of them well enough to pick a side. "It would be appreciated if neither of you killed the other on my property," she finally decides. "Come now, the gate isn't far. Take it to an alleyway like civil folk?"

"Oh, I'm not here for him. After our last little spat I'm convinced the man can't feel pain. At least..." Her lips curve upward "not his own."


"Elene. I told you. I'm done. Let the past go."

"Says the man who held a grudge for ten years?" she laughs, a chimelike, pleasing sound.

"The person I seek is inside. If you would, Nalima?"

Her voice becomes steel. "...You can't mean... No. I shall not allow it." She picks up her axe she was sharpening, and it glints silver in the moonlight. She slices through the chains on her wyvern, and it flies up into the air and away at her command. Nalima then turns to face Elene, fire burning in her eyes.

"None of your family, I assure you. The person I wish to see is of no consequence to you.

Yoren's hand rests on his sword.

Elene moves, but maybe not too fast for Nalima to intercept.

Nalima moves to intercept her, pushing horizontally outward with the handle of her axe.

It catches Elene's right arm at the elbow, and she screams, a hollow, shrieking, unearthly sound.

Her severed arm falls to the ground... And she disappears. Presumably, she is now in the manor itself.

Yoren takes off at an impressively fast run, drawing magic from the ward he set up.
