a ruefull smile curves my lip as we walk "you know how Silus and the others sometimes call me 'dead man' " I start slowly "well when they met me i was a walking corpse, with little memory and a lot of unexplained skills." i smile a little "they helped me get my memory back and then my life. but while i was dead i used to 'rent' myself as a body guard to young necromancers. i know a lot of theory but never tried any of it" the words are sour in my mouth but no less true for the telling

"Dahling, its been too long." She, in a snake like movement, takes Ignacy's hand in a cold vice-like grip. "Lovah, we will know each other in such ways that the Gods themselves will quake in ecstasy at our touch." She smiles, the slight blue ting to her skin somehow augmenting the crystalline beauty of her teeth.

Startled, Lily touches Liam's bicep a moment, as if to ensure herself of his life force "Aren't majicks risky enough when ya know what yer doing?" Her accent slips a mite before coming back under control. "And Necromancy? You could end up dead again... or worse." She shudders in the warm night.

"yeah it is, and i doubt it, most necromancers remain alive the older the thing you call the stronger it is. the better you know it and the easier it is to call, gives me an advantage, most of the things i know intimately have been dead more then a few centuries." I leave out the part about eating death, it just isn't worth it "besides this is more the entropy aspect, you throw energy ok well i am going to nullify it' rather then calling a host of wraiths and what not to fight for me" it isnt going to be pretty anyways but that is besides the point. the golem that used to be my arm gives me a dirty look "What? hey you got a pretty good deal out of it all considering" to which it replies with a rude gesture

"Ignacy, Lover," She leans close. "They want you no less then I, but together we might turn the skies to fire and coat this globe in ice. None may face us united." She reaches over and under the counter. The bartender makes a move to stop her, then, thinking better, holds himself back as he watches forlornly as she comes up with a large bottle of an unidentifiable liquor. "Drink and join with me, dahling."

With a dismissive wave, Lena takes a seat at the corner table. "Small men... what can they do to Titans of our stature." Her tone is cold as she turns a disdainful back to the gathering.

the look that Lily is giving me is more then a little uncomfortable, but there is more to worry about then the risks of my theoretical knowledge. having to hurry to keep up to the Arm. or should i call it. . her. . . the golem now? i am not sure. we are lead on a winding route past bars and shops some of which i didn't dare enter dead. soon we stand in front of Riech Park. a tribute to human folly if ever there was one. the gates are flanked by larger then life statues of Cesar and Hitler. with a statue of Napoleon mounted just ahead of it. the walls around the park are dark basalt solid and imposing. it almost causes me to smile. "well now, this is Almost funny" i mutter earning me a pair of dirty looks.

"You have a foul sense of humer," Lily grumbles, staring morosely at the statues. "They've got some real pretties in this part of town, but there's also real blood money here, things some of my buyers won't even touch."

Lena polishes her nails on her blouse. "A decade is a decade; ageless as we are, they all seem very much the same to me." Eyes darting to Ignacy's, she continues, "You're much the same too; time may weather us like the stones, but we renew as the mountains. Have you come into your blood right yet?"

"No, lily I don't" I study the gate before us two soldiers in full dress uniforms stand at attention on either side of the gate. "they do." I begin rummaging in my pockets again drawing out a faded iron cross and pinning it to my breast. At lily and the golems looks "don't ask let's just say I wasn't always noble stay behind me and follow my lead" I straighten and square my shoulders to approch the two soldiers and try to look as scornful and unimpressed as I can "what depths have they sunk to as to leave to boys so green they likely piss grass to guard the gate."

"Amusing, sir," the first says, casting as sidelong glance at his companion, warning him off, before turning back to Liam. Eyeing the cross on Liam's chest, he looks questioningly at Lily and the automaton. "Your papers, Sir?"

In a low hiss. They cant give papers to someone who is supposed to be a corpse now can they?" I growl low " don't feed me the line of bull." to forstall any objections "which of the commanders is here? Preferably one who remembers a man missing three quarters of his face who worked under Dr. N. F. Hellheim. Otherwise tell one it is about "the bell". After not seeing any movement " Now soldier"

Nodding to the other and muttering, "Watch them like a porterhouse." The youth disappears into a row of hedges. Two more materialize to take his place, automatic weapon casually leveled in the intruders general direction. Five minutes later, the young man emerges once more with a senior officer. "I am Kriss. The boy spoke of the 'Bell' and Hellhiem, two rather sensitive topics, though Hellhiem has been reassigned and the Bell has been discontinued for more pressing operations. I am required to take you and your companions into custody." Nodding to two of the men, the respond by flanking the three. "If you will follow me."

"Oh we will follow. though if we could have a moment in private i will have to have words with several higher ups at some point as apparently much information was not appropriately sent" I glance at the two who have flanked us and shake my head slightly. "As for the topics, we will speak at great length Where is the Good Dr. I am sure he will like to know that at least one experiment was a success"

"The 'good' Dr. has his hands full in the hall of mirrors with another 'guest'" Kris look skeptically at Liam, "Sir, as to the higher ups, I'm quite sure they would love to know why a man out of uniform, accompanied by a known thief and a mechanical arbitration is knocking at our door without presentable orders."

here i snarl "A man out of uniform because the uniform decayed off my rotted shoulders" as we follow the man "Tell him the Old revenant has returned and he will come running i have no doubt." i snarl again "I took orders from two men, and only two, the Dr. and our true leader, since one is gone, the other is the only who remains, if you continue to try my patience I will ensure that it is not only noted in my report but i will push for the most severe punishments i can" I growl "and the 'thief' was instrumental in regaining many parts, the Golem allowed a great deal of physical labor being done more efficiently." I am more then a little angry at the lack of respect this Boy is showing.

Irritably the man looks over his shoulder. "Protocol," He challenges, "Is still protocol, and a decoration, no matter how prestigious, is no symbol of rank, Sir."

"be that as it may, the decoration was awarded for going above an beyond the call of duty." I start again slowly " And weather you want to admit it or not, the rank system is far harder to adhear too when someone is dead isn't it?" i am almost surprised at lily's ability to follow orders "Now if you are done posturing i am more then tired seeing as R and D is the reason you get half your toys." I let the words hang in the air

His step faltering a moment, Kris stops and looks back at Liam. "You know what?" he smiles, "I think you should go to research and development. If you will follow me, we can go see what the Dr. is doing in the Hall of Mirror. Perhaps then you'll see why his interests have taken a new course."

Lily blinks and looks up at Liam, fear dancing in that moment behind her eyes before she refocuses them forward. "This is why I never use the front door," she grumbles under her breath.

"Best Idea you have had yet Soldier" I bite my tongue from saying anything else about it and drawing Lily a little closer murming softly barely twitching my lips "any other path would have gotten us shot" then louder "girl walk straighter and step lively we don't need to dally" a minute twitch hopefully is enough to signal i am not angry or picking on her, just in character for what we need right now

As Kris leads the trio downward under guard, the escort begins to show signs of emotional stress; lights dim periodically, and once building into a blinding flash that seams to pierce the very walls before falling away into the lower levels. The few personnel meet greet Kris with hurried salutes before rushing up toward the main levels.

"The Dr.'s pet isn't the only R&D project we have. Since going underground in this Nightside, in the very heart of the British resistance, whole new avenues of research have opened up to us." Kris gloats. "Since Fairchild allied himself and the rest of his elvish contingent with us, we have managed to push the very limits of our understanding."

Pausing at a heavy iron door, he turns three dials; a mechanical click and a minute clock begins to tick backwards. "There's more activity then normal," Kris comment as he holds the door for the small group, wincing as Liam steps past him, brushing shoulders. "We are now in the lower quarter. Mind you don't wander off. We wouldn't want to have any of you have an accident down here just now." The door clicks shut with a mechanical buzz.
