The City Devours (OPEN)
Date: Beltaine | 20th of Crann | 1722 ATA
Time of Day: Early Evening
Weather: Foggy and Cloudy
Location: Gentry Lane outside the Clann Raven compound.
---

A lone sound seemed to appear in the alley that night. A man had awakened and his life seem to jump into him. As if a corpse returning from the dead the man began to move. His fingers were the first things to begin to feel and to jerk. They would come alive and like the rest of him seep into a sense of existence as the man's mental fortitude slowly rebuilt itself. The alleyway had a stink about it that would remind some of their meals the night before and then of feces rotting in the dark corners of the old stone. Why the man was even there was hard to say, perhaps he was a spy perhaps he was merely a drunkard.

What did matter as this man revived is that his face was contorted in what looked like a moment of severe pain. The expression upon his face was carved in such a way that his jaw was slacked open in a silent scream; his eyes were languid; his hair was limp and hung around his face in a haphazard manner. Finally awake a groan escaped the man's throat s he felt the life that had once been lost return to him. He felt his head begin to pang with pain as he spit out the vile taste of bile from his mouth.

"That is the last bloody time I devour some bloody feckin' nightberries," the man said. The man slowly sat up as he checked his muscles and noted that his hand was moving. Muscles protested being reawkened as he slowly began to pick himself up. Air around him seemed to surround him with more putrid scents.

"No more fucking shit in the Ballydocks," the man said as he surveyed where he had been left. His name was what now? I hate this part. The man's brains slowly ebbed away from the river of nothing they had once inhabited.

His name was Aidan and he was the sworn spy of one Niall Taoiseach, Lord of Clann Raven. After having been on assignment for the past month. After having his appearance changed the man had delved into the Order of Brands in the Ballydocks. His aim was to track down the current slave trade and gain intelligence on local reigning Dark Lords of the various gangs. What he had learned had not boded well, not well at all.

Aidan was one of several spies employed by the Raven Chieftain, spies sent out to provide information for a grand scheme the man was hatching. Slowly the man made his way out of the alleyway and took a breath. His face and body began to contort. Slowly but sure the man felt his body shift, "Puca, never fuck with a Puca."

The words drifted along with him as he felt his form drop a few inches. His chest bulted out as his hips rounded. He was now a she. The word of her new form shifted in her brain as she smiled. Aidan could barely remember her true self or gender, she had been employed that long. The wind moved around her form as the clothes she wore sat strangely on her smaller frame. A man watched her glide by as she smiled. What was her original self? Perhaps she was a dog originally? Yes a prized hound owned by one of the most dangerous hunters in all of Cels.

---

Niall watched the window and watched the night. A low cast of fog swirled out over the skyline (the infamous mists that gave the city its name). The fog seemed to dance with ghostly figures within. Perhaps a band of Sluagh was abound within, perhaps nothing was there. The silent movement of the guards stationed outside the compound. Ever since the attack on his daughter and the death of his mother, Niall employed heightened security.

The Raven Chieftain was not at all a man to hide. He shifted his stance as he kept his eyes locked on the gateway. The night was young, and then a female form appeared before it.

"She's back." He said before turning to welcome his guest back from a job.

RE: The City Devours (OPEN)
While not much to go upon, Nina had listened to what brief grumblings the person gave as she had stalked it's areas. Out of all the siblings, she was likely the most adept to prowess in the dark or on the field-her armor replaced with much quieter plates wrapped in heavy cloth to mute their presence of bronze. Her face covered and her slender form to the shadows, she had watched with some mild curiosity to the side, watching with side vision but never fully upon the person of their change of what looked to be figure, then outright gender. Approaching the house as it did, Nina glanced up. Keeping her distance, the standards of the Ravens was seen above the foggy sky, though she dare not step further if to run smack into a guardsman. Turning about briefly to watch her flanks, she withdrew for now, curious of this discovery.

RE: The City Devours (OPEN)
The warriors of the Great Coill were clothed in dark shades of blue and grey. Their forms were cast against the dark foggy sky as the figure approached the front gate of the compound. For a moment nothing happen, a pregnant pause occured. Then a lightning quick whistle bit through the air and traveled through the compound until the pair of guards at the gate lifted their great spears and smacked them against their shields.

"Fiach! Fiach! Fiach!" they chanted using the Ernish word for bird. A strange welcome as the womanly shaped figured waited at the gate. The large metal and constructs groaned as they were pulled open to let the figure through. Chanting ceased as the woman walked into the compound. Quiet followed afterward as a lone garda (guard) walked out and began a patrol of the streets. Clothed in what looked like burnished bronze scale mail the warrior held aloft a lantern as she began the evening's check of the Raven lands in the city.

RE: The City Devours (OPEN)
The flicker of light that came from the lantern gave a brief warning to Nina. To be standing here would prove suspicious, no matter the circumstance, so her efforts were to use the fog to her advantage. Keeping quiet on her feet a few quick steps back, she made them a bit louder and noticeable to make of a gait of a person knowing their business and rounds in the city. She glanced at the message she was to be bringing anyway as a part of their trip here, as if to familiarize herself once more.

Strykárr let himself stand still before the door, he listened carefully, hearing the chanting, the bashing of metal against shield. The chanting was familiar to the red-haired warrior.
"Fiach.. He muttered under his breathe, as if confirming the words to himself. He took another moment to steady himself and then knocked on the wooden door three stern times, proclaiming, "My Chieftain, Strykárr reporting in." With another nod to the guard on his left he sank into thought.
He rested his arm over his arming-belt on the handle of his axe, the always alert Sidhe steadied himself.

This should be a very strange night indeed.

RE: The City Devours (OPEN)
Niall had slowly come to his senses as the guards started chanting their little diddy. "Fiach, the bird, the bird." He smile to himself as Aidan made its way deeper into the compound to finally walk passed Strykkar. Aidan had been on assignment for a while. After the woman made her way into the study he motioned for Strykkar to join them.

"Strykkar my foster-son sit down, Aidan has a report on her work with the Orders," he said quietly as Aidan sat down across from Niall at the window.

Meanwhile outside the guards closed the gate and began to start their expanded late night patrols.

He raised one eyebrow as Aidan walked passed him to sit in the room, but all Strykárr could do was just shrug. He walked in, took out a leather flask and sat with legs wide open on a chair, making himself feel comfortable. He took a long gulp from the foul-smelling liquid in the flask and eyed Aidan, finally after a moment of silence he turned his head towards his Chieftain.

"An' what does Aidan ave' tae' say bout' these Orders?" He asked with a smirk.

Nina watched as the guard passed, having not noticed her for the moment. She continued on her way with the new knowledge; moving to deliver the information she brought with her as part of the agreement to their shipments to the Swann family's coffers. Though at a late night was perhaps odd, their foreign presence had excused some flexible moral decisions thus far.

RE: The City Devours (OPEN)
"There is a plot within the Brands and a gang from the Iron bound. They are planning to sell something to the Ashurites in the next fortnight," Aidan replied. The creatures current form was that of a svelte blonde woman with large doe like green eyes. She crossed her legs while wearing what looked like a loose leine and kilt.

"They want to sell some kind of ax, and a sword. An old rusty thing engraved with old strange runic marks on it. I had to kill my cover before going after it." She replied. Niall then looked over at Strykkar and sighed.

"This is not good mo chara, these things could be very dangerous. No matter what we cannot let the eastern Empire get its hands on whatever the Orders have to sell."

RE: The City Devours (OPEN)
The guards at the edge of the Swann Chieftan's estate took note of the approaching Aesir, parted after confirmation of her identity - one parting from the others to lead the way through the halls towards a sitting room lit by a lantern overhead, in which the Swann Chieftan sat paging through a book, a chess set settled on a table nearby and a glass of wine next to it.
