What if Elene had told Yoren to kill the elder two Croix siblings, Nalima and Rexley?


The Croix Manor was quite small and a little worn. It was remarkably easy to penetrate the feeble wards and enter the house, which seemed largely unattended.

Yoren sits in the hall, chin held up by two fingers, eyes alight with... something. They appear to be shifting from color to color, and yoren is looking around curiously.

"Mind telling me what you're doing in our house?" comes a whispered voice behind him.

"Just sittin'." Yoren replies.

"I see." There's a long pause. "I suggest you leave."

"Never mind who I am. As for wanting you gone... Well, suffice it to say I don't much enjoy wiping up bloodstains."

"I make no promises."

In at least three locations around the hall, the sound of swords being unsheathed can be heard.

Yoren smiles. "Please, no reason for this to turn into something we'll regret. Sheathe your steel."

The noise keeps repeating, an uncountable number of swords unsheathing, growing louder and louder as it echoes through the house.

Perhaps this is just an alarm.

Yoren raises an eyebrow, and sends a small jolt of electricity throughout the surrounding area.

A candle is lit briefly by the electricity, then flickers out. The alarm does not seem to be affected.

Yoren tunes out the alarm. He taps his foot lightly on the floor and looks at the person with a small smile on his lips. He stands up. "Hmmm, well?"

The "person" turns out not to be there. "Whom were you sent to kill? And how much are you being paid? I assure you, our family isn't worth that much. Except in insurance. Perhaps I can find a way to compensate your failure."

"I'm afraid that failure isn't an option. And, regrettably, neither is divulging my mission. So sorry."

He actually sounds apologetic.

"Mm. Regrettable. Well, we've all evacuated by now. Thank you for your patience."

The voice, and with it the sound of the swords unsheathing, is silenced. As if by a call abruptly hanging up.

Yoren smiles to himself. He goes into one of the bedrooms and begins looking around.

A minute passes before he finds what he wants, a long, lavender hair and a few flakes of skin. He gathers a few of these and does a quick binding enchantment with the hairs and a ward in the blade of a knife. The knife begins to pull gently in the direction of wherever their owner is.

He follows it's path, humming softly.

He finds her at a balcony, releasing a wyvern into the sky.


"I didn't expect you to come after me first. I'm very glad you did, though."

She turns to face him.

"And why is that?"

He's leaning against the wall a foot or so away, arms folded and perfectly at ease. He's blocking the door, so that the only exit for her would be the drop far below. He's rather hard to see, dark clothes on dark shadow.

His sword remains in its sheath on his back for now.

"So the others can get away."

She studies him closely.

"You're not who I was expecting. That's probably a good thing. You're here to kill me, I expect?" She laughs brightly.

Yoren's sword turns to mist on his back, snaking around and reforming in his outstretched hand. He takes a stab at Nalima's heart, a ghostly, hungry fire arching down the blade.

Nalima leans forward, impaling herself on the blade as she grabs Yoren in an embrace. She smooches him suddenly, leaving a stain of bright lavender lipstick on his mouth.

"You're so... cute..." she says as she dies.
