Meave “Banshee Cry” goes into labor shortly after the rite was finished. The Rites Master of the Chased Madian opens a moon bridge back to the the Section 7 office in Minneapolis.
Deanna Wyld’s Grace discusses with the rest of the pack what they would like to do next. She suggests that they finish the recruitment in Florida but be careful not to draw the attention of “Never Asks Twice”. Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” mentions that she has some ‘family’ business to attend to.
Rita headed down to the intel department of the Miami office to ask for any information on the picture he had received from Mouse Pad. The person in charge gives what little information he has. The girl in the photo is known as Cendrillon Bonville who has been seen at the Chinese restaurant in one of the worse part of town. They don’t know what or who she really might be. Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” was given the address and wished luck.
She shared what Intel she had received and told the rest of the pack she was leaving. Mel “Brews the Spirits” asks Her alpha if she may tag along with ‘Rita’ to keep her safe. Deanna Wyld’s Grace agrees to the choice. Silent Strike and Oni Marked sneak off to fallow ‘Rita’ without her knowledge leaving Deanna to recruit alone.
Deanna Wyld’s Grace contacts “Wings of swift glory” who agrees to distract “Never Asks Twice” while she recruits members of the office. Deanna got a total of 15 members to defect from the office before she ran into Jafari “Pale-Horse” someone she had gone through her rite of passage with. After a heated conversation she convinced him to defect to the Minnesota office.
Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” and Mel “Brews the Spirits” walk into the restaurant finding it to be ala carte buffet. After both ordered their meals [Rita ordering a more traditional meal and Mel a very ‘american’ safe bet] they hear a door opening from behind the kitchen.
Silent Strike used Blur of the Milky eye to sneak into the restaurant behind Rita and Mel. Oni Marked peaked into the umbra noticing a Blood Bane. He made the choice to cross to the Umbra to kill it.
A women asked if either of the workers had seen someone by Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades”’s male description. Rita announces herself to the restaurant. The women send the workers out as she greets the two she can see of the pack. Both notice she is wearing a silver made dog collar. She bows and advises Rita she has to go into combat with her to confirm her identity. After a shot time of combat the women bows and take the two up stairs to Madame Cendrillon Bonville. Silent Strike sneaks up behind them as they are taken to the apartment that outshines the surrounding neighborhood.
Madame seems to have been living with a great amount of riches. She greets Rita and Mel warmly offering them tea. The women [main protector] bows out of the room and leaves. Rita accepts the offer of tea while Mel declines. They met yet another servant wearing a silver collar who serves them tea. Silent Strike explores the apartment, letting Rita and Mel know for the first time she is with them. Oni Marked after defeating the blood bane moves in the umbra to be behind Madame.
Madame explains to Rita that she was the man she knew as Desmond’s ‘sister’ as being sired at the same time and by the same person [evident by a painting she has of the two of them together]. She laments the fact that Desmond has carried on this obsession with Rita’s family. Offers that she knows Desmond has a few shifters working for him which is her reason for having the servants she does for her own protection. She also offers that he has been ‘eating the souls’ of her kind to gain strength and that he showed up in France 5 month ago [which Rita connects to the time the Paris Office exploded] and she’s had to go underground.
Mel “Brews the Spirits” gets up from the room to keep from frenzying to keep from killing Madame before Rita is done getting her information. Madame explains Desmond has become paranoid about those who know his true name and has been destroying those who know his past. Rita asks Madame why she is offering to help her. Madame explains that she wants to give Rita what information she has as Desmond will be coming for her soon and she’d like Rita to destroy Desmond for her.
During this time Silent Strike has discovered that there is a total of 5 ‘ghouled’ garou with silver collars. She tries to open seal them but is unsuccessful. She find the living area for the servants to be a couple mats on the ground in a windowless room that is filthy. She then finds Madame’s bedroom to be stacked with paintings, boxes and other treasures. She also finds a large locked box shoved in a corner.
Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” demands what intel Madame has on Desmond and she brings forth another servant, the youngest of them, to bring out a large box to give to Rita. The girl mouths discretely to Rita to “Help” before leaving the room again. Rita sends over pack link that they should kill Madame. She gets up to leave only to open the door to let the party back up stairs.
Oni Marked sidesteps in his breed form and tries to take off Madame’s head only to have his sword vibrate in his hand as it connects. Deanna Wyld’s Grace and Jafari “Pale-Horse” arrive to the scene shortly before combat starts running up the stairs. Mel “Brews the Spirits” also goes up stairs to join in the combat. Rita tosses the box out the door and goes back up fallowed by Madame’s protector. Rita shoots at Madame. Pale Horse claws. Mel bites. Deanna slices with her labrys and Oni throws fire. Madame controls tentacles to try and combat them away as her protector tries to block the attacks from hitting Madame. Silent strike meanwhile unlocks the box to find an almost blindingly bright glowing ball which she tosses at Madame. All the attacks kill Madame causing her Protector to frenzy but because of the Silver collar keeping her from changing forms.
Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades”, Deanna Wyld’s Grace, and Jafari “Pale-Horse” flee from the building because it has started on fire heading back to the Section 7 office in the area to moon bridge back to Minnesota.
Oni Marked falling touches the frenzying protector and leads out the rest of the servents at great harm to himself by the amount of silver. Silent Strike find a key in the ashes of Madame which she assumes will open the collars. Mel “Brews the Spirits” goes through Madame’s room grabbing some books and paintings that may be important. Silent Strike find a Fang Dager in what had been the servant’s room.
Mel, silent Strike, and Oni load the servants in the car as they flee the scene to a isolated location to see if they can cleanse the servants. The youngest of the servants grabs on to Silent Strike crying and thanking her. She reveals she doesn’t remember much except that she was taken.
Mel “Brews the Spirits” comes up with the idea after the collars are taken off that clear water might do a bit of the trick which does seem to bring some emotions forth from the other 3. “Winter’s strength” a Wendigo Philodox Cliath reveals he was taken shortly after his rite of passage at the sept of ma’iingan Heart. Another servant Jontae [who served the tea] syas he was taken from the Bone Gnawer sept near the Arc de Triomphe.
Oni Marked takes the girl who can’t remember her name to the umbra who reveals her name to be Anne, a cub who went missing from the sept of the Chased Maiden a few months back. Oni also recognized the purebreed on the only other servant who wasn’t still frenzying, Zhong Lung. She says her name is Amelia [who brought out the painting] and her mother died and her Dad was ‘away’ when she changes and was taken by the evil women. Oni asked which Wallow her father belonged to, causing her to relax enough to admit her Father was Mokole but her mother was an ‘Egg crusher’. She says her father is at the wallow of Honey Island in the Louisiana swamps. Silent Strike makes a deal with a wind spirit to deliever a message to a Corax at the FL office to deliver a message to Amelia’s father that she was found and safe.
Wings of Swift Glory showed up to help cleanse what taint was left on the servants. At this time they decide to remove the collar from the frenzying servant who shifts to Crinos shortly before she is falling touched again then falls asleep. She stays in what they discover to be her breed form [yey for metis]. Mel “Brews the Spirits” contacts the Black Furys to pick up Anne then offers to the rest that they can come to Section 7 in Minnesota.
The protector awakes and seems to be free from whatever hold the Madame had on her. She announces her self as Lures-To-The-Trap Stargazer Ahroun Claith ‘born of corruption’. She says she was taken many years ago. Mel offers to find her a way home but Lures refuses on the ground that she ‘has betrayed’ too many people to be welcomed back.
The Corax from the FL office shows up to the group to let them know that Amelia’s father was on his way. Oni Marked suggests that the rest of the group leaves but Silent Strike refuses. Mel “Brews the Spirits” goes with Wings of Swift Glory back to the FL Office with all the servants minus Amelia.
Silent Strike and Oni Marked notices a large amount of alligators coming towards them at a quick speed. Oni and Silent suggest to Amelia that they might have to sidestep if things go badly. Only one of the alligators comes out of the water shifting to a human form. Oni, thinking quickly, greets the Mokolé with a greeting he learned from the Japan office of Section 7. The man reveals himself to be the father and comments to Oni when he introduces himself that Mokolé ‘don’t have metis’ and calls Silent and Oni ‘Egg Crushers’. Silent asked the father if he knew what Amelia’s mother had been. He admits reluctantly that he had with a few hisses from the group behind him. Oni says that Amelia is like her mother. The father sighs and says he can’t take her home. Silent offers to take care of his daughter which he response ‘you will be remembered’ and he leaves.
Oni, Silent Strike, and Amelia join the rest of the pack back at the Minnesota Section 7 office.
