Sitting in the abandoned kitchen.

Post by Thanassis on Fri Nov 11, 2016 1:59 pm

Thanassis sits in the abandoned kitchen of the hospital, a spread of esoteric books spread on the table in front of him. He constantly mutters to himself as he turns pages. If a corpse could somehow look frusterated, then that is his current expression. His hood and mask lay on the table next to him, leaving his face oddly exposed.

Mia wanders into the kitchen. As is her wont, she wears no mask in such an informal setting. All her exposed skin is deathly pale. She tilts her head at Thanassis' expression. "...something wrong?"

Thanassis responds without looking up,

"This ritual vexes me. There are pieces I can only guess at...they must either be thaumaturgical or, worse yet, mortal awakened magic."

He closes the book he looking at and looks up, staring at Mia with his crimson eyes in sunken sockets. He pauses a moment, as if contemplating something.

"How goes your part of the research?"

"Slowly," Mia glowers. "Then again, you're a scholar and researcher. I'm not. I'm doing my best."

Thanassis nods slowly, as if he is thinking about something else.

"Yes, you are not a scholar...tis odd to see someone embraced into our line without certain skills."

"You want to know why I was Embraced, go ask my Sire," Mia sounds annoyed, but not at Thanassis. "Good luck finding him. I haven't seen him in years."

"Hrmm," If a contemplative noise could be called vexed, Thanassis just uttered it.

"Do you know nothing of your sire then? I have seen your skills, you could not possess them untrained. The True Art does not come naturally to many, especially multiple paths."

Mia takes a seat at the table. "I know him. Knew him for a year before he Embraced me. He started my training, saw my natural aptitude for the work, and taught me the basics of each Path."

Thanassis nods his slender neck slowly.

"I should bring you to meet my Sire. His haven is close by, in a sense. If you are lost, then we should fix that. He could easily take over your training. I would be happy to assist myself, where I can."

"...do I seem lost to you?" Mia arches a brow at Thanassis.

Thanassis nods slowly.

"Your Sire should not have let you go so...early. How old are you, Mia? Your clothing suggests you are a recent embrace."

Mia is quiet for a long moment. "I was Embraced four years ago."

Thanassis looks impassive, but to those who know him well can see he is in a state of momentary shock before he speaks.

"Child, you ask me if you seem lost? To me, those very words mean you are. I am older then many countries and yet still I regularly speak with my Sire. Those of us who call ourselves Harbingers are very close knit, indeed it is why I have consulted you on so many things and respected your opinion over others. You seem to have our hatred of the Giovanni kinslayers, how is that so?"

"I've done the same with you, Thanassis, because I respect you and your abilities and your knowledge," Mia replies. "I'm not- if there's a close-knit community of Harbingers, I've never been a part of it. Not since my Sire," she stops herself and grits her teeth. "Not since he and I parted ways. And I hate them because they're filthy, disgusting pieces of shit. I know what they did. I'm not that ignorant."

Thanassis shakes his head slowly.

"Then I shall have to be the one to take you under my wing and welcome you to our community, Mia. You are one of us, and you shall not be neglected from hence forth."

Mia blinks, her pale features registering surprise. "I haven't been neglected. I was trained in the ways of Sword. It just wasn't done by a Harbinger."

Thanassis nods as if Mia just agreed with him.

"Yes, you are a ductus and full member of the sword of Caine. This is something different that has been neglected. No more."

Mia frowns. "What is it that you think's been neglected?"

"We have a deep history and culture. We should have a private talk about exactly your absentee sire taught you about us. It is not a thing for open ears."

Thanassis nods in acceptance.

"How goes the wraiths combing the city? Mine have yet to find anything."

"Ditto," Mia flops back in her chair. "I don't *want* a bunch of nihil in the city, but it sure made the one a lot fucking easier to find."

Thanassis' corpse-like face cracks into a profound scowl.

"Useless tools. I shall have to gather them and destroy one to motivate the rest."

Marcus stalks into the room, nodding towards Mia and then he stares intently upon Thanassis.  "What have you found out so far?  I do not like it when days of research turns into weeks..."

Turning his corpse-like gaze to Marcus, Thanassis's red eyes narrow in displeasure.

"My work proceeds. To rush it would be foolish. This is not some play ritual we are talking about."
