Cirius in the mean time does as he always does. He spends his time working and sitting in the coxswain enjoying his hot meals. Oblivious to the shady deals and crooked machinations of lady known as Delatine. He can’t help, however to be curious about this growing rivalry between the Watch and the young elf maiden. It is for this reason he decides to pay a visit to his old… friend. But not before he does some digging of his own and questioning people around the docks as to what is going on.

The vanishing of children comes as no real surprise when he hears word on the street. He joins in the crowds from time to time when someone decides to yell at the watch. Though this is just to incite a bit more yelling and antagonizing before he vanishes into some alley way or side street, quite glad he left the whole business of peace keeping.

Yesterday several Watchmembers(Archer, Corcorin, Kavir), a noble(Selenius) and a cleric(Allison) were assaulted in the Trades Ward slums just on the outskirts of the area Lady Delatine has claimed. No one was seriously injured for the mysterious lady showed up just before a riot broke out saving the party lives. The group spoke with the moon elf, but was unable to gain much information. Archer and Corcorin being hot headed attacked the lady as well, Archer snapping their lance on an unknown force and Corcorin missing before they understood brute force would not beat or subdue the elf. Allison was rather quiet during the the situation but attentive nonetheless, but it was Selenius and Kavir that were the most useful to the group. Kavir went blind in agony from a simple 'detect evil' spell while Selenius stated he would petition his house to see how things went. Not long before the group left a man by the name Cirius arrived, and several in the group were quick to lump him in with the evil child stealing lady only if because Cirius and Delatine seemed good friends. Selenius soon left, one out of two to remain unscathed from the encounter and headed to the Lion for a drink..

He was sitting in the closed room, listening to what Sel,Archer,Corcorin and Allison were debating on the matter. He felt his head twice as big, and his body was aching...His eyes were fine, but he could still sense a trace of the dagger-sharp pain that tore through them as he glimpsed at what was truly inside the young moon elf. "They don't know" he said to himself... "They don't understand what she is..."

As the discussion went on,he gave them the story...How he met Delatine that night, the threat, what he knew about the missing children, and learned from Sel of a certain Delatine that vanished from a brothel. But the Delatine they met clearly wasn't the same... Witchcraft, possession, the theories started to pile up, but they weren't closer to a palpable truth more than they were that day in the slums. She was clearly a being of immense power, beyond their reach...And covered up what she was plotting with mastery... They couldn't deal with her like this, alone,directly... They needed some stronger friends... And that was exactly what they were going to look for...

((Hey, I was wondering if there was a chance Silence could get in on this by asking around at the Halls of Justice.))

Taking up his new post as 'Overseer' for Lady Delatine, Antiny continues to work the construction as appointed by the taskmaster, but keeps a watchful eye out on people wandering around the area, asking each if they need any help, and announcing himself as the person to speak to about the going ons of the construction, and the current go-between of the Lady. He generally leaves most wanders to themselves unless they happen to be watchmembers in which case he babysits their visit. If questioned he answers only about his own work there in the restoration, but will state that all other business there is none of theirs.

He was in the tavern well after everybody else left, pondering on what he had seen and what he knew, when Antiny entered the room...A quick conversation about the matter of missing children and some philosophical banter on the nature of Kavir's suspicion made Antiny jump, but before matters could get deep, she entered the room, and offered her hands to them in a strangely friendly manner..."What you started,Kavir, you have to end..." she said to the young paladin, and teleported them to the slums, where she asked to be left alone with Kavir...

"Are you willing to pay the price?" she asked..."Of course I am... I need to know,at any cost..."And his answer was accepted...She turned into pure darkness,enveloping him.He felt distant and alone.And then he saw everything...A demon ascending to godhood, his death, his resurrection, at the cost of his divine essence... And he finally understood what those people were chanting late in the night..."The shadow of Orcus has been reborn, glory be to the darkness!!" But he also felt pain, and his very mind reject the wisdom he was fed.He woke up in the chamber where she originally brought him, the strange buildin where those men prayed. Only he was now alone, no sign of Delatine...As he walked outside, his head was spinning, his stomach was railing, and he was sweating heavily, although the outside air was chilling... He was unnaturally pale and could barely keep his feet, so he leaned against the nearest wall, covering up his eyes, as the sunlight was now hurting them. And that's where and how Selenius and Archer found him.

Sablac Taan, after talking to Antiny, heads over to the trades ward to ask around abut the missing children and this Lady Delatine person. He'll ask people where he can find her.

After having a long day. A morning with a half orc about the rumours around, a day on the job leading him to seeing fist fight break out between Kavir, and the now discovered Cirius, followed by the trading of rumours inside the tavern about the whole mess over missing children. Antiny can't even think of sleep anymore. His mind was troubling him to much, and it was making him sick. He wondered back into the slums to look around. He would check the floorboard where he had found her once before, and if not there he would continue. If he couldn't find her after an hour or so he would make his way home and try again the next day.

The half-elf Corcorin decides it best to check in with the Halls of Justice to see if his services could be of any extra aid. Technically not being a part of The Watch, he figures the occupants of the slums might be willing to trust him with a little more information as to possible whereabouts/comings and goings of Lady Delatine, or the missing children.

(Well I have a character wrapped in it as his only cause, and one I'd like to follow up. I hope it doesn't take too long.)

My skedule's pretty erratic these days, it depends on what hours you're looking at, more than days :)
