The de Vinci Catastrophe? [Location Art Museum]

TS: 17th of Junctior Era XV Post Fractum just before the 9th candlemark of the brightening.

Dante was wearing his new ensemble that Hatorania had insisted for him. He had on a white undershirt with an open dark blue tunic and rust colored pants. His elven long knives were sheathed at the front of his waist on his belt and he had his regular crossbow slung over his shoulder. He didn't want to bring the auto crossbow, because if there were some sort of combat in the museum it might cause too much collateral damage. He had made slits on the outside of the thighs of the pants so that he could hide his sacrificial style daggers there. He also had a dark blade dagger up each sleeve, for stealth kills if necessary. Finally he had a dagger hidden at his right ankle.

Meeko was waiting on the wall above his head, watching the coming and goings of the populace. She had insisted on wearing her purple ribbons, something about them being more warrioress like. Dante wasn't really sure. After all she had to weave each word she wanted to say in a spider web. It could make conversation difficult.

Kala was there as well of course, looking radiant in her pink outfit. Something about her in her half elf seeming wearing all pink leather caused many a Dianaite male to turn their heads to stare at her as they walked by. She would send a "That's another one" with the call to Dante every time she caused a passerby to walk into something or someone else. It was her little game she liked to play and she was very good at it. They were patiently waiting for the other invitees to arrive before entering the News Paper Office for the Museum job details. She had her longbow of course, and a dagger at her waist.

Dressing in normal clothes would still take time to get used to. Tunics and Pants, belts and Boots, laces and what not, so much extra stuff that prior had been all performed by a simple robe. Yet, there was something nice about it all. It was exciting to get dressed up and go out. Though, in the end much of his clothing was often hidden by his cloak, perhaps in his mind the most important part of the whole ensemble. It had two primary functions for him, on one hand it was a transition tool, since he had become so used to the feel of a robe, it wasn’t quite the same, but was just close enough. More importantly on the other hand, it was the best way that he had to hide his wings. It wasn’t that he was ashamed of them, well maybe a little he felt they frightened some people, it was that there were a few people who knew all to well about them. The last thing that he wanted to happen was to be taken back into solitude, or to cause any problem for Dante… He had known all to well what some people thought of Dante’s kind, and still it was surprising to him still that he was on his way, walking freely in the city, to meet Dante out side of an establishment in order to go on an Investigation for the newspaper?

It was an exciting thought, and it was a chance to do something with the group before they went down to Taralon. Still, he was unsure as to exactly what benefits he would be able to bring them. He was a simple scribe, a servant. It was a role that he was proud to fill, something that he was good at, and soon, he would be learning of many more things. It was something truly to look forward to.

In the distance he could see the office to the newspaper. It was not an establishment that he was overly familiar with, but Dante, Kala and Meeko stood out in a crowd… Maybe it was just Meeko that really set them apart. Grasping his cloak from swinging open to much, the young boy raised his hand as high over his head as he could, trying to motion to Dante or Kala that he was near. A difficult task for the short of stature. It was perhaps a blessing that the streets were not flooded with individuals, the residential district not being overtly known for its large amounts of traffic.

Niven is a glorious SuperheroNiven is a glorious SuperheroNiven is a glorious SuperheroNiven is a glorious Superhero


The birds chirped and the soft breeze brought Autumn scents to Niven's cute little nose. A smile formed on her soft pink lips and a contented sigh from the foot of her bed reached her pointy ears. Juno had naughtily crawled out from the blanket bed that Niven had fashioned for him the night before and curled up at her feet. Niven's grass green eyes fluttered open and she sat up and smiled at the picturesque view outside her window. The peace and serenity lasted all of a few moments when the fact that she was supposed to be somewhere now hit her like a ton of bricks.

"Bugger!" Niven yelped as she threw away the sheets and her tiny feet hit the cold floor. Juno, now covered in blankets and instantly awake and ready to go, barked and wiggled out from under his blanket cave. He sat on the bed, watching his master run around frantically gathering all of her things and preparing herself for the day. Niven quickly washed up, ran a brush through her silky shoulder length blonde hair, and threw her dress on. Tugging on her boots, Niven made a mental checklist of what she needed to bring with her and reached for Juno's leash. She clipped it to Juno's collar and slung her quiver of arrows over her head and shoulder. Niven slung her bow over her right shoulder and her bag with her dagger over her left and wound the excess leash around her hand. She closed her room door behind her and thundered down the stairs, Juno hot on her heels. She waved to the innkeeper and grabbed an apple from the bowl on the front desk. It would have to do for breakfast.

Munching on the apple, Niven quickly made her way through the streets, and finally the sign for the Newspaper Office came into vew. Underneath it stood Dante and Kala and as she got closer she could see that little Jirael had also already arrived. Niven tossed her core into a nearby bush and half jogged to where the group stood. "Serale!" she greeted everyone giving Kala and Dante a smile and tousling Jirael's silver hair. Juno took immediately to the boy and jumped up on him, barking in excitement, his tail wagging a mile a minute. "Sorry I'm late. I overslept a little," Niven apologized. She glanced at the office door and then back at Dante. "Is this it?" Asking not only if they were going in right away but asking if this was all the people who were coming for this job.

Dante looked up as Meeko started poking him in the head, "Meeko what?" He swatted at her leg as she pointed towards Jirael. Dante looked through the thin throng. His grin grew large as he returned Jirael's wave.

Meeko leaped from the wall and started off towards Jirael as the crowd immediately split for the spider. She pounced on Jirael, whom she had taken quite a shine too. She used her first row of legs to pin Jirael's arms and her 3rd and 4th row to pin the boy's legs then her 2nd row to tickle his sides. Dante called out to the pair as Kala started laughing to herself, "Meeko! You let him up right now!"

Dante rushed over to the pair and picked the spider up off the boy, then helped Jirael to his feet and dusted him off. He walked with the youth back to the newspaper office and continued to wait for the rest of the group.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dante smiled as Niven came dashing up. The obviously rushed young elf maid looked like she had overslept. "And a good brightening to you too." He gave her an elaborate bow, using his tail to counter balance his almost nose to the ground bow. Once he had raised himself back up Dante turned to the assembled group, "I'm not sure if Carnasch is going to show up and it's after the 9th mark anyway so we might as well go in huh?" Dante moved to the door and held it open for the rest of the group.

Meeko was a spider. A large spider. A very large spider. In form anyways. It was something that was known to him. Meeko was really a young girl whom Dante had taken in, her soul trapped inside the body of a giant spider. While the details were not perfectly clear to him, and he was a little more then too timid to ask about them, it still did not change the fact that a large spider that he had only a few days ago met, was on a collision course for him.

There was a brace. He closed his eyes. He was going to be taken down, and he knew in his mind, she was a nice girl. He repeated it to himself as Meeko playfully pinned him to the ground. Forcing a smile on his face, a skill that he had much practice with, he didn’t see much alternative then waiting it out. Still its one thing to see something and one thing to know something, he couldn’t hurt her feelings again.

Dante called out to her, allowing him to give, perhaps a little forced, a half sigh of relief. Allowing Dante to dust him off, he gave another smile towards Meeko. A gentile smile that showed everything was alright. “Serale Meeko” he added, in a light, but slightly winded tone. He reached out a hand to give her a gentile pat, in a similar way that he had seen Dante do before. All of his unease masked under the simple knowledge that so far he had known that Meeko and Dante were ‘good’ people.

Following after Dante, feeling a little sorry for Meeko… it wasn’t something that he felt was appropriate to ask about, but it did start him wondering why it was she was still in the body of the large spider. He shook his head a little, it wasn’t the time to ask about things like that, let alone think about them. There was a reason, and it was not his place to judge.

Bowing to Kala and Niven he gave them a gentile smile. “Serale.” Simple greetings had an elegance that said more then any extra words could. The place of a child was unheard and seldom seen. Following instep with the rest of the group, he entered the Office.

Carnasch was late too, although unlike Niven, he didnt really care. He did his best to arrive when he was supposed to, but if his body decided it needed to sleep later than when he was supposed to be somewhere, then that was its decision and he really had little choice in the matter without help from someone else to wake him.

Either way, he had left Gus at the Inn, figuring he probably wouldnt be allowed inside the buildings anyway, so he was best off resting at the Inn. Carnasch drove him hard at times, so it was alright to treat him well when there was an oppertunity to do so.

Carnasch was arriving just in time to see Jirael get tackled by Meeko, but he was further away than might be expected because of his height and a slight hill in the road that he was walking down. He also noticed that the other were going inside, and since he had made it cleat that he might not be attending it was alright, and he lengthened his stride a little to make up the time.

Carnasch entered the building and spotted his freinds, whom probably had a hard time not spotting him if they turned to see who had come in after them. He growled out a greeting in his usual tone and waited in the back of the group to find out what exactly they were to be doing here.

The inside of the office was busy as the various agents of the newspaper ran out for their daily assigments. The Editor looked up from some papers he was filling through and smiled at the group. He was elvish, one of the winged elves from Trelore. His beautiful gold and silver wings were neatly tucked behind his back.

"Serale Dante." He said and looked over the crowd. "How can I help you this brightening?"

Dante smiled at his long time employer. "Serale Chief. My friends and I would like to hear about the job you advertised in the paper. The Museum thing?"

Dante motioned back and forth to those present. "This is Carnasch, Niven, and Jirael. Meeko and Kala you know."

The young boy that had been introduced to the Chief as Jirael stood behind the others, His cloak was wrapped about him tightly, as he stepped into the room… Normally in such a place his gaze would begin to wander the room, taking a curious look at each and every thing that it held, trying to get a feel for the atmosphere that it created. This day however, his eyes were immediately drawn to the man behind the counter. He was elvish, though like Jirael he too had wings. His however weren’t the same color, they were gold and silver. It was strange indeed.

He wasn’t sure what to make of it really… all he could do was watch as the winged elf and Dante spoke to each other.

The Chief smiled and humorless smile. "I should have expected to see you show up." He said pulling out some papers from a desk. "Lets see. Reports have been appearing of strange events occurring any were large amounts of art work are located. At first it was though there were art thieves, but then one night one of the guards saw a strange flying creature come out of one of the art works in the museum." He handed over a sheet of paper.

"In one of the manors an art thief was later found dead standing next to painting." He said. "So far its just rumor or hear say. So we need you to take a look into it."

Dante grinned. "You know me chief. Always have to find the story."

Dante took the piece of paper and started looking it over. "So if what the witnesses say are correct then the phenomenon isn't isolated to just the Museum? What do you think... are the witnesses credible?"

After the chief answered Dante turned to the crew. "So what do you guys think? We question the witnesses then see if we can stand guard at the museum and the manor in question?"

Carnasch listened to the conversation and found it rather... entertaining. Art, comming to life. It probably wasnt true, but it was still an entertaining thought. A small smile crept across his face as he listened to the winged elf, but it dropped off again when Dante asked for ideas for what they should do.

Quote:

Carnasch was willing to answer of course, but it probably came off a bit gruff... but when didnt it?
"I aint no good at questionin' people Dante, so maybe I can take a peek at where that thief died an' see if I can figger somethin' out? An' since Ill be up there anyway I will keep the watch over tha' big house tonight."

Carnasch waited for an answer and any ideas the others might have of course, and for Dante's approval, before going off to the mansion, possibly accompanied by one of the others.

Listening intently to the problem, Niven's eyes sparkled brighter with each new interesting fact. Art coming to life? That was definitely worth checking out. She was eager to begin. She maintained her composure though, as Carnasch spoke.

"That sounds like the best plan of action," Niven agreed, referring to Dante's suggestion. "And , I, too, would really like to see the scene of the crime.There's always loads to find at the site." She looked up at Carnasch, "Not that you're not capable of doing so yourself, just 4 eyes are better than two."

Kala looked at Dante for a moment and they shared a silent conversation. He then turned to Niven and Carnasch. "Kala makes a good point. She and I can contact each other over a fairly large distance so it is best if one of us are at each location. I know that you can track, Carnasch, so it is best if you check out the crime scene, see what you can determine. Niven can back you two up and Jirael and Meeko will come with me?"

Dante was confident in his own abilities and there was more than met the eye to Jirael and Meeko could take care of herself. He didn't want the children in danger, but if this was a magic monster arcana would be the tool to stop it anyway.

The young elf had listened to the conversation… It seemed that Dante knew this place quite well, it spoke of perhaps how well connected in the city Dante might have been. The conversation itself was worrisome though. Art works coming to life, strange creatures killing people. The boy was no expert on art, though he felt that they were created to be looked at, not do things like kill people. If magic was at work, it was a foul magic indeed… and that was even more worrisome.
