    *ahem*

    Zee frowns a bit as the dwarf inquires if there's anything else that needs to be done. Probably... But she has lots of memories to sift through. Her cognitive abilities are drastically limited when she's dreaming and now K'rax is doing her best to filter her vast archive of knowledge through the teeny little brain of the finger puppet here at Trog's everyone calls 'Zee'.

    Trying so very hard to keep herself in a torpor as long as possible.

    "Eerr... I've got one for you. But it'll be really really hard. There's this cat wandering around. A black cat. An all black cat, eyes and everything. You need to get it a saucer of warm cream. Keep offering it to the critter until it drinks."

    ...that doesn't seem terribly heroic, Zee.

    "Okay."

    He ponders where he can find warm cream and a specific cat.
    The specific cat? Why, it just so happens to be right over there. On that table. In one of the Shadowy Corners(TM). A small black kitten lazily sitting around, though it's black-eyed attention is focused on something small on the table, which it keeps batting around with its forepaws. What a cute wittle kitty.

    Karaglen gives Zee a somewhat sympathetic smile, tinged by worry.
    Worry for the city and her.
    She successfully fails to glance murderously at the tendrils in her back.

    "It's okay, Zee. I've got plenty of crackers here, to keep you up."
    Where'd she get those crackers?
    Who knows. Probably from a cracker dealer!

    ...who's over there in the corner, wearing a lot of dark clothing, with a hood over his face.
    He appears to be busily haggling with an old woman with a cat, holding up part of his coat and trying to sell a peculiar brand of Saltines.

    Maybe they're really tasty?

    Yay for plenty of crackers!

    Zee idly picks the object of her awakening up and begins nibbling on a corner.

    They do seem unusually tasty...

    When Gerritt replies Zee gives a rather disappointed frown. Aaww... She likes ferrets... "Sorry! I can't do that. Only what I offered. Or... well... I could make you exactly what you were before. But that would require using my full unhindered power which would basically doom the whole world and everyone in it."

    Dooooom!

    Kitty!

    Cream is procured! Now for the hard part.

    Approaching that cat in such a way as not to seem threatening.

    This is hard because everything Darst does he does with an undertone of "And I'm willing to beat you unto death with your own arms if necessary."

    So he approaches the cat, warm cream in hand, as non-menacingly as possible.

    It might look a little like a jolly dwarf going to feed the cat.

    Or it might look like a menacing individual pretending to be a jolly dwarf going to feed the cat.

    "I can, if you'd like."
    The voice offering this, comes from somewhere behind and to the right of Garrett, from a white-haired, middle-aged man in a traveler's cloak.
    A yew bow is strung over his back and an unusual age is present in his eyes.

    Not the sort of "I've been around since the dawn of time" age, but the "I've seen too much" age.
    They're a bit sad.

    Which goes rather counter to the cheerful smile he has stamped on his face.

    Karaglen, meanwhile, drops her glass of water on the floor.

    The water begins seeping between the cracks in the floor, as so many other drinks have before it.

    Zee waves cheerfully at Xeni!

    Yay!

    "Yeah, he probably could! Welcome back Xeni! It's been a long time."

    Indeed it has.

    Oh so very long.

    Not as long as, say, the Old Ones have been sleeping. Just a few years. Which is still a long time for the Nexus where everything seems to happen so fast and furiously.

    "Yes it has. Sorry to vanish on your folks, but it looks like you kept things together well enough. Good to see you again Zee."
    The mage gives a little nod to the bartending terrorhorror before looking Garrett over.

    "That depends. How old are you?"
    Here "old" means "how long have you been a vampire?".
    It shouldn't be particularly surprising that this would have an effect on the changing in question.

Which is a regularly sized black spider with a particularly large abdomen adorned with an hour-glass shaped red mark.

    The cat is torturing the poor spider, and has already pulled off two of its legs with its tiny claws. The arachnid is scrambling to get away from the fuzzy little feline, but it bats the spider back or snags it with its claws every time it might get off the table.

    "Probably safe to say you're fairly saturated then. Probably eaten a few folks, too."
    Xeni manages to remain un-judgemental, continuing to look the fellow over.
    "Well, if it's your average vampirism I can purge that out of you. You probably won't thank me, when you're alive again. It's an unpleasant transition, for a week or so.
    If it's some sort of god-curse, well. You'll never thank me, but I can get rid of that too."

    That one really hurts to be cured of. Extracting divine will seems to have that sort of effect.

    Meanwhile, Karaglen has decided to stop existing in her seat and start existing adhered to Xeni's waist, wrapping him in a rather tight hug.
    She even forgot her sword.

    "Oof. Hey kiddo..."
    He lifts her up off the ground, for a proper hug,before setting her down again.
    "Let me take care of this and then we can catch up, okay?"
    The girl gives a little beaming nod, understanding the obligations of duty and for now just happy to see he's alive.

    Xeni rumples Kara's hair a bit before looking back up to Garrett.
    Kind of looks at him funny for a second.
    "Yeah, you're definitely not an old one then. You haven't been torturing your body on that stuff long enough to get sick yet.
    Usually a reason it has to be human blood, as opposed to 'blood-like substance'."


    But he shrugs. Not his place to judge a fledgling vampire for hoping to cling to morality. However futile it usually is.

    The dwarf will place the warm cream near the cat, almost under it's nose. If the cat is distracted by this, he will then crush the spider with his thumb.

    He knows it's probably poisonous. He also knows that his thumb is very strong.

    Unfortunately, THAT CAT hoards his play-things, and quickly brings and traps the spider close when the cream is put in front of it. The little kitten peers suspiciously at the saucer.

    "Mow."

    Usually it would happily lap such an offering up, but the Stars are almost Right, and it's intelligence and malevolence is growing. The kitten bends over and daintily grabs one of the Black Widow's legs with it's tiny teeth, before gently dropping the spider into the saucer of cream. And then poking at it with a single claw, pushing the arachnid under the surface of the liquid. It holds the poor tortured things under for a couple of seconds before allowing it back up, then immediately dunks it again.

    This seems to please the cat.

    You go dwarf!

    Feed that kitty some cream! Hopefully you won't get killed in the attempt. That would be really tragic.

    Zee is approached by the light demon! He might notice her leeeeeaning over the bar to snatch the sword Kara left behind. But as soon as he draws near she quickly stands upright and smiles cheerfully.

    "Hiya Oscar! Services would be great! There's lots of stuff that needs to be done and there's no way I can do it all myself!"

    Partly because she's physically unable to do a lot of these things herself. She can't directly oppose her own purpose in that fashion. She can, however, recruit others to do it for her.

    "How comfortable are you with combat?" she inquires of the light demon. "Because that'll have a pretty big impact on the kind of mission I can give you."

    The tavern door is pushed open and through it emerges a sandwich board holding a guitar. The board crosses the bar, amid muffled "scuse me ma'am." and "sorry, mister" coming from deep inside the board. Arriving in the corner, the board reveals itself to be a scrawny, middle aged man in battered old city slicker threads. He sets down the board and makes a b-line for the bar.

    The board introduces him as Sammy Hicks, blues singer extrordinaire.

    He settles down at the bar, orders his drink and sets about tuning his guitar.

    "G'd Ev'nin' all, just let me git set up, and yeah, i do requests."

The kitten bends over and daintily grabs one of the Black Widow's legs with it's tiny teeth, before gently dropping the spider into the saucer of cream. And then poking at it with a single claw, pushing the arachnid under the surface of the liquid. It holds the poor tortured things under for a couple of seconds before allowing it back up, then immediately dunks it again.

    This seems to please the cat.
    Okay. Time to appeal to the kitty instincts. This may be amazingly dangerous.

    Darst will pet the cat. Perhaps skritch it behind it's ears if it seems to prefer this. He will sit down, offering his lap. If allowed, he will take turns dunking the spider.

    THAT CAT purrs in acceptance of the pets. Seeing the dwarf as a worshiper, it decides to lap up some of the cream. And the spider, which it happily eats.

    Once the kitten has drunk its fill, it'll try to hop onto the dwarf's lap and settle itself down. Which it attempts to do rather permanently, if its suddenly unsheathed claws trying to dig into the dwarf's skin and clothes for no reason at all are any indication.

    Oh yes. That's certainly a real bite, as opposed to a little nip.
    Adele's benefactor would be quite pleased, if he was here to observe the handiwork.

    But he's not.
    Xeni is.

    Something Abyssal. That would be the handiwork of Mr. Faust, a little signature left behind to monitor Adele's progress.
    Doesn't have much of an effect, on a technical level, but it's there.

    Heh... Sammich board. It will be provided with any drinks desired! Especially on account of being rather silly.

    Aaaand... Zee did indeed miss the chance to snag the sword. Maybe Xeni will be able to talk Kara into getting rid of the evil thing. Aw well... Have to see to giving the light demon some instructions instead!

    "Okay... light to darkness. That could come in really handy," it most certainly could! Zee ponders a for a few moments, sticking her tongue out of the corner of her mouth a bit because everyone knows that helps people think. "Oh! I know! Alright, first of all I need you to understand that you'll have to follow the instructions you're give exactly. If you don't then bad things will happen."

    Like fights!

    Horrible horrible fights.

    "Go to the slums and find a burned out cathedral called Saint Barnabas'. Inside you'll find a large three-stemmed candle holder with one only candle burning, the one in the middle. Snuff it, then light the other two. Turn around and you'll find a woman praying at one of the pews. Kneel down next to her and whisper, 'All the darkness in the world can not extinguish a single flame.' She'll tell you what you need to do next."

    "Sure sure," Oscar says as he heads out. He hopes he gets a bottle of Pinot Powerlust on the house for this.
    Is it okay to skip me? Probably.
