    "So a White Court Vampire has got a ghoul that can turn people into Red Court Vampires?" She ask confused. "We'll have to check the bodies out more in detail then." She says, "The safest place would probably be my house, we models tend to keep our houses secret to avoid stalkers and rapist from coming over. It'll be getting to it that is the problem, but if these stupid vamps don't ruin us then I guess we'll get it..."

    Grim frowned at the discussion ... apparently vampire was the correct answer, which raised a ton of questions. "Um, point of order, Mr. Chairman ...is this a ghoul that turns people into Red Court, or a ghoul that infects others like the Red Court does? Important distinction, I think.

    As for leaving, I'm all for that ... but we need to make sure that CSI doesn't come in here and nail us all. Can you two work some mojo to fix that?

    I'm particularly interested in what Brando tells his girlfriend when she shows up to party and we've all headed to a different club"


    Grinning, Grim waited to see what the others would do.

    "We don't know for sure. Normally ghoul-hood is not an infection, so it *looks* more like a Red Court thing, but we won't jump to conclusions until I've had time to study the corpses. Until the White Court gets here, let's try to get this place cleaned up as much as possible. You may have already left prints, but but we may be able to do some damage control..."

    Grim glanced around, wondering if he should suggest that Amber burn this one down, too, when a knock on the door shattered the silence. Glancing over at Brando, he smiled. "Is that your vamp already?"

    "Spirit magic is my specialty. As for how many depends on how close we get. If we get close enough I can throw an area veil and hide the group. It won't be as strong, but it should be enough." She says quickly as she starts to prep the spell, "So cluster as close as you can and I'll throw it up as soon as possible."

    Once everyone got close enough she quickly cast the spell and throws the veil to hide them.

    Through the hole, Brando sees his girlfriend, looking as ravashing as ever, wearing what is likely appropriate for being on-set for a porn-shoot. Looks like she booked it over here quickly.

    Amber debates dropping the veil, but instead settles for moving away from it and leaving it in place. If the Commander wanted to be seen he could, if not then he was more than able to remain.

    She doesn't speak and just watches Aria with an untrusting stare as she keeps her defenses up.

    Grim grinned at Brando, wondering if the man really wanted him thinking twice about his girlfriend. He figured the situation would present itself, however, where he would be able to comment without liger urine all over the furniture.

    As the door opened, he remained where he was, not thinking about the veil as much as he was enjoying the view of Aria. Of course his grin grew wider, as all he could think about was an M&M commercial.

    Oh, so it's THAT kind of party!

    Technically, Brando can't invite Aria in either, but the vampiress steps in anyways, leaving behind most of her power. The first thing she does upon entering is to take ahold of Brando and give a nice, wet, passionate french kiss. Pressing her body against him, one must wonder whether she's doing this as a negotiation tactic. Well, Brando's not thinking of that right now. He's distracted.

    Harry stays within the veil for now, letting Amber become visible. Brando hadn't mentioned Harry yet, so might as well keep him secret just in case.

    A part of Amber wanted to take this chance to take out a White Court Vampire, but despite her dislike of the vampires she wasn't going to start a war. She is quiet and waits with her arms crossed.

    Brando almost expected the crazy feeling that came with the kiss. The whatever it was that the White Court threw at you that made passion, lust and everything to look like more of itself, more intense...

    It didn't come. Or maybe it did but his mind was too busy elsewhere to give it any attention. Aria had crossed the threshold and most likely left that power there it seemed

    Then as he turns, he sees Amber but not the other wizard. He raises an eyebrow for a second, then remembers something about a veil. He was invisible it seemed...

    Nodding, Grim started to make a comment about, 'What no kiss for me?' but decided against it. His grin spoke volumes, however, as he waited for the inevitable fireworks that occurred whenever Amber and the White Court were in the same room.

    Waving, he simply said, "Raowr ..."

    Aria untangles herself from the good doctor, and licks her lips as she regards the changeling and the lingerie supermodel. "Yes, love, I've seen them once before, well, I suppose I see HER a lot more often. I see her everywhere...plastered on billboards...inside catalogs and magazines...oh do I know a lot of men who carry magazines with her photos into restrooms. She is talented indeed."

    She laughs a throaty laugh, one that is surely practiced to stir something primal in men. "So, enlighten me my love. How does this get wierder?"

    "Someone in your family managed to create a Ghoul 2.0 from what information we got"

    As Brando walks, he puts his hands in her shoulder, around her back, half embracing Aria. Taking her to the bodies

    "The girl is the one that we were looking for. She wasn't being fed upon, but rather was left to starve until she ate the meat of some dead body. The ghould bit her before. After we got here, she...ate part of her mother's after some time. Then killed herself"

    Amber ignores the White Court Vampire's comments. She was sure even had she not been a model that the vampire would have seen her quite a big just keeping an eye on the Warden.

    "Well if it wasn't a White Court you might want to look into who is looks like a White Court Vampire, uses White Court territory, and claims ownership of a White Court Warehouse" Amber states, "However, if anything you should be happy we burned it. As long as it was there then there would be evidence of a mortal who was not kine being kidnapped, experimented on, and placed in danger and that a Warden found it. It would look rather poorly if the White Court had been caught in such a blatant disregard and attacks on people under our protection. We can't stop volunteers and kine, but we do have the rights to protect regular mortals. That almost seems like they would be wronging the Wardens by targeting people under their protection, and with the Wardens the entire White Council. I'm sure the loss of the warehouse is a good price to pay rather than start an entire duel or a fight between the Council and the White."

    She glanced around, "In fact since it was your members in your warehouse targeting non-kine under my protection that would mean this entire mess that needs to be cleaned up is just as beneficial to the White Court as it is to us. Because while not helping would present problems for me, it would present bigger problems when the White Council found out about members of your court experimenting on, kidnapping, and killing non-kine under Warden Jurisdiction. So, you can feel free to charge us, but after the payment is done I'll make sure I speak to the White Council about the violation of the accords and discuss if we should start arranging for a duel."

    All humans are kine. There's just willing and non-willing.


    "Well, a duel is certainly within your rights...you'd just be duelling the perpetrator, and if he has committed these crimes, it is perfectly withiny our right to kill him in the duel. The White Court would be *happy* to weed out any weaklings within our ranks. Of course on the other hand, I think your Council is a bit...busy these days isn't it? What with the Red Court gaining the upper-hand and all..."

    And thus we start social combat that will determine who gets the better end of the deal! What is Amber's Presence? We need to see who goes first.

    Grr I've typed this response in twice now and my computer has crashed every time Maybe third time's the charm. Anyhow, Vampires call pretty much ALL of human-kind to be Kine, since Kine basically means 'food.'

    In terms of the Accords, Amber knows this as a Warden:

    Mortals are not signatories of the Accords. As such, they do not have official status. The Accords do not directly give Mortals protection. However, since the White Council is a signatory, and the White Council claims the protection of mortals as part of its domain, the White Council has the *right* (although not necessarily the obligation) to 1) protect mortals and 2) redress wrongs done against mortals by Supernaturals.

    In practice, it is pretty much impossible to take any legal action against the White Court for willing Kine. In this case, since the mortal was unwilling, the Council does have legal standing to go after the offending individual. The White Court Vampires have a few options.

    1) It can actively investigate, catch the offendor, and extradict the offender to the White Council. Parties on friendly terms generally do this, but the White Court is in no way legally obligated to actually go to these lengths.

    2) Actively hinder the White Council's investigations and harbor a fugitive. If this happens, the White Council is well within its rights to start a war with the White Court. This is sort of the excuse the Red Court used to start a war witht he White Council, saying that the White Council refuses to hand over Harry Dresden for the 'crimes' Harry committed against the Red Court.

    3) Do the minimum necessary to avoid blatant appearances of hindering the investigation. For the White Court, this would involve a lot responses along the lines of, 'We're not sure what happened. We don't know where this individual might be.' There's not a whole lot the Council can do about this legally

    Alright thanks, the comment on number two also helped explain why certain duels were allowed to happen. Cool, once I know who goes first for the social conflict I'll make my rolls and such and reply in character. I'll give a small reply here though just to keep the ball rolling


    "And I do plan on dueling him if we find him. Nonetheless, one could argue that intentionally declining aid in a matter that is clearly the White Court's mess could be hindering and hurting. Either way it looks bad when a White Court Vampire makes a mess and you try and charge and hinder our attempts to help clean it up."
    Amber states, "I'll point out again, both these people died because a White Court Vampire kidnapped someone under my protection and then caused them to do a lot more damage. Had this vampire not touched the girl none of this would have happened. Cause and effect means this mess is YOUR mess to clean up and while it hinders me from a mortal sense, from a supernatural sense it will look much worse on the White Court." She states, "And while the White Council might not be in the best shape for another fight I don't think the White Court is either. Regardless of who has the upper hand how much damage do you think the White Court would sustain as well? We definitely don't want a war and neither do you. But at the same time not wanting a war doesn't mean we want to be walked all over and will over look attacks against us."

    Amber crosses her arms, "Had this mess been started by my actions I'd have no problem making a deal with you to buy your assistance. But why would I pay to clean up your mess?"

    Grim just watched the cat-fight, his grin never leaving his face. Of course, Amber tended to take things personally, ESPECIALLY where the White Court was concerned, so this was only going to go down hill. Wandering over to a front window that wouldn't completely silhouette him, he casually peeked outside, looking up and down the street for any movement.

    "Why? Because you're a goody-two-shoes Warden who hates to see innocents get hurt. If the White Court does not render you aid in this matter, there will likely be more innocent mortal deaths, regardless of whether our two sides go to war. And that...is something I'm betting you aren't willing to let happen. Another reason is...well...judging from your looks you are totally new at this, and can't compete in the big leagues yet in terms of arguing supernatural laws and customs. It'll just be easier for you to give some concessions. I'm happy, and you'll be happy that less people get hurt."

    Aria goes first, and the first thing she does is a Maneuver to place the "Having doubts" temporary aspect placed onto Amber.

    Now, as the storyteller, I am going to Compel Amber's trouble aspect of "Sorry, I'm Still Kinda New At This!" to have her either concede immediately (and gain a Fate Point) or spend a Fate Point in order to stay in this fight. If Amber stays, then I will go ahead and do the maneuver roll.
