Regrouping at the offices of Olympia Investigations, the cabal discussed recent events.
Tartarus began by asking the others if they knew of Mr Cheng, a Red Pole within the Jade Lotus Triads. Receiving no acknowledgements, Tartarus went on to explain who Cheng was and that the Lotus wanted war. They had recovered the relic, the Blade of Kronos, and intended to use it to win the war that was erupting in Seattle’s shadows.
The others didn’t seem quite as concerned about this as Tartarus however, quickly turning the conversation to the events that had occurred at the Rainier Club, and subsequently the Conway Residence. Adria explained that Viktor was framed and that someone else was responsible for the attack. Furthermore, someone had both mind controlled Mrs Conway to kill herself and Hecate, before controlling the corpse of Mr Conway to try and blow up the group.
Seeking more answers, the group had Tartarus summon the ghost of Mr Conway once more. Angered and frustrated, it took some time to extract the information they needed from the ghost, but they eventually discovered something of use. After Tartarus had learned the face of Mr Conway’s killer, the spirit followed the gunmen to the old dockyards before the spell expired.
Then, after returning to his body, watched in confusion as it reanimated and attacked the two paramedics that were taking it to the morgue, causing the ambulance to crash. From there, his body went back home, where Adria encountered it.
- Adria. XXX
- Hecate. Ugh…okay, I didn’t think that my own client that I had to protect would try and kill me. I don’t know what the hell is happening but something bigger is going on after what Adria told me. It’s not looking too good but we’re looking into the shooting at the Rainier Club now.
- Helios. XXX
- Tartarus. Damn kid Helios stirred up trouble. Had to get ahead of it. Spoke to one of Cheng’s running boys, sent my message along, got an invitation in return. Too much trouble, but I’m sure things can still come back from the brink….
