June in Autumn, Sinister Plans and Chicago IC Thread 7

Post by Anja Rebekka Schultze on Tue Dec 29, 2015 9:00 pm

(OOC: So here we will continue from IC thread 6. Adley, Colin, Jeffry, Hannah and Narim where in the Council chambers ready to go and try to save the Umbra docks from June. Tane was in his house talking with Coawa and Alessa about his plans to move to Steelhaven. Happy Gaming.)

"Let me know if you get any ideas..." He said as he hurried through the corridors.

"Show her the message that she was sent?" he asked, going over everything they had, good or bad, trying to use it to stop what was happening.

Colin strafed into the room and spent a couple of seconds catching his breath while Morgan summed up the situation, "You could try stopping me... When do we... Leave?" He straightened up and took a deep breath, steadying himself, "How long do we have to... Oh, hello, Miss Day, Miss Larson. My compliments to you pugilistic skills, Miss Day."

He was not surprised Colin wanted to go with them - not in the least. But he hadn't time to say anything, just wait for Henrietta to leave before plunging into explaining the mess they were in. And trying to get Hannah to help them, if she could.

Your mentor say before he close the door behind Hannah, the Orphan looks confused. "What is wrong?" She asked. "What have happened?

"We have just found out that the Nephandi are using your friend June to carry a powerful warspell into the umbral port to destroy it. She was chosen for this as a punishment because she chose to let me go when she realised she could not bargain with my life. That you would not want her to kill me for no reason. Instead, she took her people and escaped but returned to them. Hannah I'm sorry, truly I am - but we need to stop her from doing this somehow. Will you help us? If we don't stop it, this attack will also take out the airport and surrounding area in less than thirty minutes, killing many, many people."

"Show her the message that she was sent?" he asked, going over everything they had, good or bad, trying to use it to stop what was happening.

"Showing Miss Larson the text you mean...yes that might be necessary to do now."
Jeffry said and nodded.
"If you ask Narim to send it to your phone and you can show it to her."

"We have just found out that the Nephandi are using your friend June to carry a powerful warspell into the umbral port to destroy it. She was chosen for this as a punishment because she chose to let me go when she realised she could not bargain with my life. That you would not want her to kill me for no reason. Instead, she took her people and escaped but returned to them.

Hannah looked shocked and sad then she sigh.
"Oh June..."
She muttered and shook her head.
"Damned my mother!"
She said then she glanced at you.
"It do not surprise me that June let you go, she is a Nephandus yes but she only kill if she have to."

Hannah I'm sorry, truly I am - but we need to stop her from doing this somehow. Will you help us? If we don't stop it, this attack will also take out the airport and surrounding area in less than thirty minutes, killing many, many people."

Hannah sigh and put one hand to her face then she nodded.
"Yes...I will help you Adley I...can not let all those people die."
The Hannah looked up.
"I will however not let the Traditions have her, if I so have to kill June myself I will not let the Traditions have her, do you understand?"
The Orphan said angrily.

Narim tapped something on his phone and the air shimmered.
"The portal is open gentlemen...and Miss Larson...if things go badly I will try to teleport you to safety...I will try..."
Jeffry help up a hand.
"Mr Wainwright, Miss Larson and my apprentice if you are able, but now me, if things go wrong I will try to contain the explosion, hopefully we can stop that and it will not come to that, but if things go to hell, I will go down as our Funder doing my best to hold the explosion back from causing harm. Wish us success or a glorious death my friend."
The old Flambeau said and then he walked through the portal.

Colin nodded, "Miss Larson, if necessary... I will help with that. If, however, she is willing to surrender, to help fight your mother, I will do my best to help her to exactly that, regardless of your wishes. I can promise you, though, I will use neither magical compulsions nor extortion to barter for that result. I can only offer kindness, sincerity and mercy. I will not try to recruit her under false pretenses. If she only wishes to get away, though..."
Colin sighed, "What do you think, Adley? If she wants to get away, we give her that chance while we save the day?"
Then he turned to the portal and wobbled for a moment, "Whoa, sparkly... no, wait, that's... Oh, of course, that's how that works... Er, not the... oh, I'll get back to that later."
Then he stepped through.

Hannah spun around to look at Colin tears in her eyes.
"If June surrenders she will do no fighting and you know that, she will be put in a cell and shipped of to Horizon, or worse...it will be done at some Chantry and she will be left in some gutter to die."
The young woman said.
"My lover surrendered to your damned Traditions, I will not loose her the same way...I will not."
She said angrily.
"June have...Diego have not been kind to his apprentice, if she want to...surrender....to give up that will be because of despair and torture not her own will and I will rather put a bullet in her head than have the Traditions have her, if she dies, it will be as a complete being not as some half alive husk wasting away."
Hannah said with anger and sadness in her voice.
"The point have to be to stop the attack on the Umbra docks, if June stops that, who cars if she runs away afterwards right?"

Narim give Hannah at sad compassionate look then he glances as Colin.
"I could just fold you to a new location Mr Wainwright as if you where a space ship in Dune, but I find that it is often less disconcerting to step through a portal than to just suddenly be in a new location."

"Showing Miss Larson the text you mean...yes that might be necessary to do now." Jeffry said and nodded. "If you ask Narim to send it to your phone and you can show it to her."

He nodded. "Alright." He glanced around as they walked towards the chambers, dialling Narim next as he said to his pater, "You're getting the hang of these infernal devices."

Hannah looked shocked and sad then she sigh. "Oh June..." She muttered and shook her head. "Damned my mother!" She said then she glanced at you. "It do not surprise me that June let you go, she is a Nephandus yes but she only kill if she have to."

"I'm afraid that they're trying to make her. But I hope she will listen, at least to you..."

"Yes...I will help you Adley I...can not let all those people die." The Hannah looked up. "I will however not let the Traditions have her, if I so have to kill June myself I will not let the Traditions have her, do you understand?"
...Colin sighed, "What do you think, Adley? If she wants to get away, we give her that chance while we save the day?"
"If June surrenders she will do no fighting and you know that, she will be put in a cell and shipped of to Horizon, or worse...it will be done at some Chantry and she will be left in some gutter to die...The point have to be to stop the attack on the Umbra docks, if June stops that, who cars if she runs away afterwards right?"

"I can't make promises when I am not even sure how much control over the situation I will have. " Then as Hannah turned on Colin, he frowned. "She had the opportunity to run before, and she went back. Who knows, killing her might set this thing off. But speculating is wasting what little time we have, so let's find out what we can do," he said.

"The portal is open gentlemen...and Miss Larson...if things go badly I will try to teleport you to safety...I will try..."
Jeffry help up a hand. "Mr Wainwright, Miss Larson and my apprentice if you are able, but now me, if things go wrong I will try to contain the explosion, hopefully we can stop that and it will not come to that, but if things go to hell, I will go down as our Founder doing my best to hold the explosion back from causing harm.

Then he turned to the portal and wobbled for a moment, "Whoa, sparkly... no, wait, that's... Oh, of course, that's how that works... Er, not the... oh, I'll get back to that later." Then he stepped through.

Adley looked at Hannah and gestured for her to go ahead of him through the portal, so that he would bring up the rear.

// That sounds like a good holiday to me!

He nodded. "Alright." He glanced around as they walked towards the chambers, dialling Narim next as he said to his pater, "You're getting the hang of these infernal devices."

"Yes I am getting far more hang of them than I would like."
Jeffry said and sigh.
"The only problem is that by the time I am used to them it will be something new, everything moves so quickly and at times like this I feel old."
He muttered.

If you sent Narim a message about sending him the text from June then he will do so and you now have it on your phone, if by dialing him you mean that you call him up then he will pick up after two rings and say.
"Ah yes Adley, hello what can I do for you?"

"I'm afraid that they're trying to make her. But I hope she will listen, at least to you..."

"I hope I can talk her out of it but...she will be scared, my mother is not a merciful woman."
Hannah muttered she looked quite concerned.

"I can't make promises when I am not even sure how much control over the situation I will have. " Then as Hannah turned on Colin, he frowned. "She had the opportunity to run before, and she went back. Who knows, killing her might set this thing off. But speculating is wasting what little time we have, so let's find out what we can do," he said.

"Well yes she will have a dead man's handle on the thing, that is what I would do if carrying such a device into a place where there where bound to be several magi allot older and more powerful than myself. Diego is a Verbena Spellweaver Barrabi, and June is trained in the same Tradition she is good with what you call Prime and tampering with rotes is her specialty."
Hannah muttered.

Adley looked at Hannah and gestured for her to go ahead of him through the portal, so that he would bring up the rear.

Hannah steps through the portal and as you go after her you notice again that you feel it as less disconcerting than before, you more quickly catch your bearings. Colin however you feel the full force of being one place, and then suddenly being right behind a car rental shop near the airport. Hannah seamed to be completely fine, she just adjusted her clothes and stepped towards the car rental's wall as if she knew exactly where to go.

Jeffry you see are already working on opening a gateway into the Umbra docks themselves, his hands moves and he mutters something then he indicate the glass window and wall that you are now facing.
"Shall we go in? I suggest we begin to search for corrupting, trying to feel our Target's dark magick, if we find her though it is important not to spook her."
The old mage warned before he took a step and went right through the wall.

(OOC: Warp would you mind giving me a Willpower roll to see how Colin deal with being teleported, I will set the difficulty down to six due to his constitution.)

((OOC: WP roll: 2, 5, 8, 8, 9. I'll note that Colin does have the first dot of Correspondence; it's not completely alien and unfathomable. Smile ))

Colin stepped through, took a few steps to clear the portal, and let out an elongated, soft belch, before getting his bearings and locating Morgan. "Well, that was smoother than last time, at least..."

Jeffry nodded as he finished up his rote.
"Well one gets used to it Mr Wainwright."
He said before he stepped into the window of the car rental shop, Hannah following him though.

When you get to the other side of the gateway to the Penumbra you see something that in many way's looks like Logan's, the big building that hoses all the facilities of the airport itself is there, though it somehow looks grander on this side. In the air you see a beautiful zeppelin that looks like it is coming straight out of a steampunk novel, partly hidden behind the main building are what looks like a spaceship, and something that looks like just a mass of roots and trees sits beside a small cluster of other buildings. Where there in the physical world are parking lots, shops and the car rental there are a large open area, dotted with kiosks and benches and here and there trees are planted in small clusters. On one of the benches a man and a woman who looked like they should be a part of a science fiction move due to their clothes sit eating, and three youngsters in jeans and tshirts where heading into the main building. The sky overhead was so blue, far bluer than any sky you had ever seen and the only thing ugly in the place was the small puffs of pollution floating around like black specks, representations of the pollution caused by the planes in the airport.

Jeffry wait until everyone where through then he says.
"Ok we will spread out and look, anyone who can search using magick should do so, look for something wrong, corrupted, something destroying rather than changing reality, in short look for Qliphothic magick. If we do not find this June in ten minutes we meet back here and we will have to try another tactic. One of you should escort Miss Larson and make sure she stays safe. If you find June, do not spook her, but for now try to talk her down."
The old mage said then he scribbled something in his notebook and ripped the page out and gave both Adley and Colin one part of the page each, the page was marked with several hastily scribbled symbols.
"Written magick is not my specialty but this will do, if any of you find June or you find trouble rip that note to pieces and I will know where you are and come for you...any questions?"

(OOC: Oh sorry then you should not have needed to roll, I forgot about that.)

Colin nodded and followed Morgan through the window, then paused for a bit, "Okay, that is impressive..."
He accepted Morgan's note and produced his Prime-alugned monocle, and muttered out the resonance scan rote he had used earlier; the lens dimming softly.

You find two sources of strong corruption that can be Qliphothic magick, one of them you see as a mass of something that should not be, or rather the residue of it near the main building, the other source feels more warlike though it is still quite destructive and wrong and is located out towards where the mass of roots and leaves where ehm...parked.
"I should probably go with Mr Wainwright, Mr Roth Hicks have seen June the way I understand it, however Mr Wainwright have not so I can recognize her and also describe her if we ask if anyone have seen her."
Hannah suggested to Morgan and the old Hermetic nodded.

Colin frowned, "Oh, those two look bad... Er, some residue by the main building, and the large... shrubbery. Er, would you see if you can make something out, Sir?"
Colin handed Morgan the monocle; looking through a prepared lens should work for anyone, Awakened or not...

Jeffry takes the monocle and looked though it at the sphere of roots and the main building.
"Hum...it could be either of those two..."
He said and handed the lens back to Colin before he made several hand gestured and muttered a few words under his breath to have a look for himself.
"We should check out both."
He muttered.

"What if you and Miss Larson take the main building and I will go with Adley and check out the area around the Verbena ship...unless any of you have another preference?"

Colin nodded, "Well, then, Miss Larson, if you'll come along? I expect you've got more offensive magic in your repertoire than I do, but are you a quick worker? Not that I hope to see it in use, but it's the sort of thing that' good to know before it becomes necessary."

"I am fairly quick, my mother was my teacher, for as well as someone can teach magick to someone's who's powers belong to another part of the triat, she was once a Hermetic so I guess you can say my magick is as well, chants, hand gestures and traditional tools."
Hannah said.
"Very well lead the way Mr Wainwright and yes let us hope we do not need combat magick in this for I have a feeling that if we do, then we have already lost."
The young woman said.
"But yes quick enough but not as quick as a Verbena Spellweaver."

"The only problem is that by the time I am used to them it will be something new, everything moves so quickly and at times like this I feel old."

"Everything seems to move so fast, it makes me feel quite young," he said.

he will pick up after two rings and say. "Ah yes Adley, hello what can I do for you?

"Would it be safe to forward me that message you showed me...you recall the one, we were considering whether to show it or not?"

"I hope I can talk her out of it but...she will be scared, my mother is not a merciful woman." Hannah muttered she looked quite concerned.

'I hope so too."

Hannah steps through the portal and as you go after her you notice again that you feel it as less disconcerting than before, you more quickly catch your bearings

Before he went through, he said to Narim, "We need to keep Hannah from falling into the wrong hands, or being killed if we can help it, so try to get her out please. Wish us good luck," he said and then hurried through.

Colin stepped through, took a few steps to clear the portal, and let out an elongated, soft belch, before getting his bearings and locating Morgan. "Well, that was smoother than last time, at least...

"You're telling me," he muttered, then made a face at the burp.

"Shall we go in? I suggest we begin to search for corrupting, trying to feel our Target's dark magick, if we find her though it is important not to spook her."

"Hannah, what is June's full Name? It might help us find her..." he asked, before stepping through into the umbral port proper. There was no time to admire the ships, but he was looking for anything that might be linked to June, once again they weren't there to sight-see. "I wanted to ask you that about the caul as well, your brother...his Name."

"Written magick is not my specialty but this will do, if any of you find June or you find trouble rip that note to pieces and I will know where you are and come for you...any questions?"

Adley took the paper, read it over and put it somewhere he could get at it easily.

"I should probably go with Mr Wainwright, Mr Roth Hicks have seen June the way I understand it, however Mr Wainwright have not so I can recognize her and also describe her if we ask if anyone have seen her." Hannah suggested to Morgan and the old Hermetic nodded

"Be careful, Hannah, Colin." He didn't like splitting them up, but they didn't have much time.

Colin frowned, "Oh, those two look bad... Er, some residue by the main building, and the large... shrubbery. Er, would you see if you can make something out, Sir?"

Adley turned his attention on the areas that Colin described, looking for the traces of magick he found before scanning the rest of the area in the same manner he had been doing for the last few days now. Someone might be throwing them off the trail with a false one, or there was more than one Nephandi...

"Hannah, does either of those areas feel like your friend's resonance?" he asked her.

"What if you and Miss Larson take the main building and I will go with Adley and check out the area around the Verbena ship...unless any of you have another preference?"

"You've seen June as well, pater. I can go with Mrs Larson, or Colin if it would be better...whatever makes the most sense." He had given up wishing that they'd been able to get implemented half the things they thought to plan and instead was going with whatever they had.

"Very well lead the way Mr Wainwright and yes let us hope we do not need combat magick in this for I have a feeling that if we do, then we have already lost."

He couldn't help but agree with that sentiment but there might be more Nephandi on the loose besides June.

Colin nodded thoughtfully, "All too true, I suppose... Right, it seems to be a reasonably straight path from here; less like a maddened dreamscape than I'd feared, at least. And good point, Adley; what is June's last name, anyway?"
He turned toward the main building, "So, it looks like there's been a leakage of something unbelievably nasty, almost like the magical equivalent of a toxic waste spill... This should be interesting."

Adley:

"Everything seems to move so fast, it makes me feel quite young," he said.

"Perhaps Adley I feel old...because I am old."
Jeffry said with a hint of a smile.

"Would it be safe to forward me that message you showed me...you recall the one, we were considering whether to show it or not?"

"Yes I can do so safely, give me a moment and I will send it to your phone."
Narim said.

Before he went through, he said to Narim, "We need to keep Hannah from falling into the wrong hands, or being killed if we can help it, so try to get her out please. Wish us good luck," he said and then hurried through.

"I will do what I can Adley, I will do my best to get her out of there if things go wrong."
Naim promised and nodded.
"And good luck to all of you."

"Hannah, what is June's full Name? It might help us find her..." he asked, before stepping through into the umbral port proper.

"Her name is June Summers."
Hannah said as she glanced at Adley.
"I know her...Craft name as well if that will help, through I would feel like a traitor to her for revealing it, she is one of those who keep their Craft names very secret."

There was no time to admire the ships, but he was looking for anything that might be linked to June, once again they weren't there to sight-see. "I wanted to ask you that about the caul as well, your brother...his Name."

There was nothing out of place at the Umbra docks, not right now at least and just with your mundane eyes you see nothing out of the ordinary.
"Dain...my brother's name is Dain."
Hannah said and looked down, she always seamed a bit sad when talking about her lost brother.
"Though my mother call him something in the Nephandi language I can not pronounce, if you have a cat you do not like I can produce a similar sound though."
The young women muttered.''

"Be careful, Hannah, Colin." He didn't like splitting them up, but they didn't have much time.

"The same to you Adley, be careful."
Hannah said.

Adley turned his attention on the areas that Colin described, looking for the traces of magick he found before scanning the rest of the area in the same manner he had been doing for the last few days now. Someone might be throwing them off the trail with a false one, or there was more than one Nephandi...

"Hannah, does either of those areas feel like your friend's resonance?" he asked her.

You see the same as Colin, though with a little less details than him, you see the two Resonances, one near the sphere of roots and leaves and the other in the main building, you sense that they are heavily Entropic but not much more than that. Hannah mutters a few words in Greek and do several hand gestures, the gestures was like a combination between the older and newer systems, between what Amadeus used in addition to his blood magick and what your mentor use.
"No...none of them feel like June's Resonance."
Hannah says when her rote is done.
"Thank one there however."
She says and points at the main building.
"I have felt this Resonance before, it is an older mage from another Labyrinth, he is an ally to my mother and he taught me a rote or two a few years back...his name is Pablo Daris...I am fairly sure whatever is over at the main building is his handiwork."

"You've seen June as well, pater. I can go with Mrs Larson, or Colin if it would be better...whatever makes the most sense." He had given up wishing that they'd been able to get implemented half the things they thought to plan and instead was going with whatever they had.

"Yes I have seen her."
Your mentor confirmed.
"Very well then since it seams Miss Larson sense something over at the main building perhaps it is safest for all three of you to go in that direction while I check out the Verbena ship. In either case we need to get going."
The old mage said and he started moving towards the ball of plants.
"One of you can come with me and back me up or the three of you can examine the main building but we need to get a move on."

Colin:

Colin nodded thoughtfully, "All too true, I suppose... Right, it seems to be a reasonably straight path from here; less like a maddened dreamscape than I'd feared, at least. And good point, Adley; what is June's last name, anyway?"

"Summers...and this is the Pen Umbra and it is party a man made regio so it should be fairly recognizable as well what we are used to living in."
Hannah commented.

He turned toward the main building, "So, it looks like there's been a leakage of something unbelievably nasty, almost like the magical equivalent of a toxic waste spill... This should be interesting."

"I am not sure if interesting is the word I would use Mr Wainwright."
Hannah commented dryly as she started walking.

(OOC: Hehehe lol yes...and now the Nephandi want to cast a big red direct damage spell on your Umbral port.)

Colin nodded, "Very well... Miss Larson, come along, please. Adley, choose quickly. Godspeed, Chief."

((OOC: Well, then, we all have some Prime ability, so it's time we use some Blue spells to tap their mana sources.))

Jeffry gave Colin a nod then he continued to hurry towards the open field and the large roots and leaves sphere that sat "parked" on it. Hannah nodded and joined you as you walked towards the main building.
"Well then let us see what we find in there Mr Wainwright."
The young woman said and she glanced over at Adley to see if he was coming with her and Colin or if he would be backing up his mentor.

Colin adjusted his monocle a bit while moving, trying to get more of a fix on the residue - was it on the outside of the building? The inside? Stuck in the wall?

"Yes I can do so safely, give me a moment and I will send it to your phone." Narim said.

"Thanks," he said, and shut the phone away again.

"Her name is June Summers." Hannah said as she glanced at Adley. "I know her...Craft name as well if that will help, through I would feel like a traitor to her for revealing it, she is one of those who keep their Craft names very secret."

"That would probably make it more helpful to find her, though, at least for some of us," he said. It would help his mentor, at least. "You know what is on the line."

"Dain...my brother's name is Dain." Hannah said and looked down, she always seamed a bit sad when talking about her lost brother. "Though my mother call him something in the Nephandi language I can not pronounce, if you have a cat you do not like I can produce a similar sound though."

He nodded. He wondered at the Nephandi tongue...they destroyed, it was a destruction. Maybe giving part of his name -back-...but there wasn't time to think about it, he shoved it onto the back burner, for later assuming they survived. "Hannah, there's something I wanted to show you but could not risk your safety at the time," he said, sounding apologetic if short. "We don't have much time now either but you deserve to see it and maybe it will help you get through to June and understand what's going on." He showed her the text.

"I have felt this Resonance before, it is an older mage from another Labyrinth, he is an ally to my mother and he taught me a rote or two a few years back...his name is Pablo Daris...I am fairly sure whatever is over at the main building is his handiwork."

"What kind of magick would you expect from him?" Sure, it wasn't going to be anything good...not for them anyway. And no trace of June was worrying...

"Very well then since it seams Miss Larson sense something over at the main building perhaps it is safest for all three of you to go in that direction while I check out the Verbena ship. In either case we need to get going." The old mage said and he started moving towards the ball of plants. "One of you can come with me and back me up or the three of you can examine the main building but we need to get a move on."

It might've been the fact that he said safest or maybe it was just that he realised if June was somehow over by this...plant...she might not be too friendly with his pater...and that's why he wanted him to come in the first place, to help with the bomb. Or that if something happened to his mentor there'd be no backup. Or just that it was settling into his brain that it was impossible to make these choices and not have some unanticipated consequence, that he really couldn't protect everyone, that guts and logical decisions were leading him astray and that he just had to keep trying anyway. He waved at the pair and hurried after the Chief without any explanation at all.

Defining victory here was stopping them from blowing the place up...

Colin:

The residue or energy you where seeing did appear to be coming from inside the building somewhere, it was hard to know exactly where but it was definitely inside the large hall that in the real world was the airport itself.

Adley:

"Thanks," he said, and shut the phone away again.

There was a small ping shortly after you put your phone away as Narim send the message.

"That would probably make it more helpful to find her, though, at least for some of us," he said. It would help his mentor, at least. "You know what is on the line."

"Yes...but it can also be used later...if we do not blow up and June do not get killed and captured on this day, then it can be used against her to find her if she tries to run."
Hannah said and hesitated then she looked towards the Umbra docks and the ships and thought of all the lives on that airport.
"I...fine...it is Yfant√° foti√°, Woven Fire..."
The young woman said then she looked down.
"Damned it, now if that is used against her and she is captured I will have a life of June's Avatar on my conscience, I hate this fucking war!"
Hannah turned away angrily.

"Hannah, there's something I wanted to show you but could not risk your safety at the time," he said, sounding apologetic if short. "We don't have much time now either but you deserve to see it and maybe it will help you get through to June and understand what's going on." He showed her the text.

Hannah took the phone and read the message and she gasped.
"June..."
She muttered.
"Why...if i had been shown this last night perhaps I could have saved her...perhaps I could...have done something."
The young woman said with tears welling up in her eyes then she handed the phone back to Adley and wiped away those tears.
"You and I are going to have words assuming we survive this..."
Hannah said and she did not sound pleased, she sounded like her emotions was a mess but she pulled herself together there where no time for her to fall apart now.
"For now let us just find her..."

"What kind of magick would you expect from him?" Sure, it wasn't going to be anything good...not for them anyway. And no trace of June was worrying...

"Fire, explosions, skin melting off bones, a lightening strike hitting you in the head he is an elementalist."
Hannah explained and Jeffry nodded.
"It might not be him..if the ball was made by him and Miss Summers is just maintaining it and holding it until she is ready to activate it then the Resonance would be mostly his."
Jeffry said and glanced in that direction.
"It is hard to know for sure though, but if this man can make a ball of abysmal flame, then he is a Master of the Art so whoever go to find out if he is the one who is there better be pretty damn careful."

It might've been the fact that he said safest or maybe it was just that he realised if June was somehow over by this...plant...she might not be too friendly with his pater...and that's why he wanted him to come in the first place, to help with the bomb. Or that if something happened to his mentor there'd be no backup. Or just that it was settling into his brain that it was impossible to make these choices and not have some unanticipated consequence, that he really couldn't protect everyone, that guts and logical decisions were leading him astray and that he just had to keep trying anyway. He waved at the pair and hurried after the Chief without any explanation at all.

Jeffry nods and you and the pair of you hurry towards the large sphere of roots, it looked like a gigantic twig ball and was apparently what some Verbena had decided was the most ideal way to travel through the Umbra. As you get closer to the ball you see someone on the ground, it was just a dark shape at first but then you see a man, getting a little closer you can recognize him as you have seen him at Steelhaven visiting Beatrice and her mentor, another of Boston's Verbena though you had never met him formally. The man had brown skin and dark brown hair and he appeared to be sprawled out of the ground, unconscious or dead. Your mentor signal for you to be careful, someone or something had knocked out or murdered the Verbena man, and that someone might still be around.

(OOC: Oh yes he is definitively the bluest mage around and he is playing control.)
