    Samuel will answer the door, somewhat happy to see Charity. His wife and eldest two children are bedridden, but he and his adopted child are still able to be up and around.

She looks about six years old, and is obviously tired as she moves around the house. She rests often, but probably not as much as she should be.
    "I know it's boring to stay in bed, but you'll be sick longer if you don't rest," Charity says to the adopted girl. "Those are some pretty cool markings. Have you always had them?"

    "Kathy's been resting for a month now. She isn't any better."

    Kathy is her sister, a human about nine years old. For a small girl, this is a good counterpoint. But when the issue of her markings come up, she becomes... uneasy.

    "Yes. Well, no. But, it doesn't matter. They're not part of the sickness."

    "We've got lots of doctors working on it now to find a way to make you and Kathy and everyone else better," Charity says. But she won't question the little girl any more aout her markings.

    Instead she approaches Samuel. "I need to ask you some questions so we can get the data we need to fix this. Are you feeling up to this?"

    Samuel will sit down in a chair, not the most comfy thing. Probably to keep himself from getting too comfortable... he's specifically keeping himself from relaxing right now, it seems. "Sure! What's the question?"

    Samuel will give her the information. His elder daughter came home one day, sick. By the next day, the son and the wife were sick. He admits that he began feeling sick a day or two after, but he didn't get really sick until after his younger daughter did, about a week later.

    With a shake of her head she turns to look at the sleeping mind, was this the manager, the mastermind behind all this? Cessie attempts to detect any magic in the area before she shields herself and then tries to cast a powerful force cage around the woman, followed up by two stone shackles at her legs and arms. This is all assuming she didn't notice any sort of protective enchantments nearby.
    [Lefty's Cave]

    Cessie will find one such enchantment meant to protect... against the cold. It's more of a comfort thing than any real protection though. Cessie should have no trouble caging the deranged manager with everything she wants to.

    Only to find she's still asleep once the bindings are on.

    More nonsense, she'd be more lenient if she didn't know this woman was completely insane, and not in the charming way. "You have ten minutes to turn me and my friend back or you will force me to do something very drastic." She claims while tightening the stone shackles around Lefty's ankles and wrists.

    It takes a short while longer for Lefty to understand exactly what's going on, and then she just grins, "I can't! I never developed a counter strategy. A carpenter doesn't take demolition tools to the house he's building; why would I have the ability to turn you back?"

    Charity winces. She's heard stories about people who go to parks - they get eaten by gazebos or turned into plant zombies or have their skin turned to butter. It's never anything good. "Your youngest daughter - how did she get the markings on her skin?"

    Samuel sighs.

    "I know, just doing your job. They're tattoos. The culture of her race is mostly based around nightmares they have. Sometime when they are very young, they have a nightmare. They have this nightmare every night of their entire lives. And according to traditional Norcus culture, they get named after it, and get it tattooed onto their skin. Her parents were traditional enough to do that. And from there they put her up for adoption and never spoke to her again."

    He sighs. "Hey, do your best, okay? I don't want to lose anyone. And..." He leans in a bit, "I've been feeling worse. I don't know how much longer I can go. Please, if you can, be fast."

    At this point, distressing news comes over the radio: one of the Remnant soldiers in the area has taken ill. She confirms that it's the same symptoms as the plague.

    Krystal shrugs. If you practice enough, who knows.

    She starts climbing back down. When she gets low enough, she jumps the rest of the way, landing in a crouch. She stands back up and shoves her hands into the pockets of her jeans.

    I spent a lot of time practicing my skills because I wanted a chance to go up against a certain person from my world. It wasn't anything personal, it's just his powers were kinda like mine, and I just wanted to spar with him.

    Rogar walks down the stairs leading to Gordon's current hiding place. He opens the door to reveal a electrical storm that fades out.

    "Err, still haven't got that down yet."
    "So, any new plans, sir?"
    "Yes, I've been thinking. While striking against Remnant could be well, I lack the manpower to hold it."
    "So, I should tell E to regain control of the security systems?"
    "Indeed."

    Rogar turns to leave, while things in the lair start floating.

    "Stay for a moment, Rogar. I've been feeling lonely."
    "Alright, Gordon."

And also Myrim will, when in fresh water, create a mucous membrane around herself that is designed to pull anything sticking to her off and makes her slippery, much like a fish does. This both pulls off most forms of aquatic parasites, but also keeps her cleaner than one might expect from a creature native to swamps and marshes.
    "Suit yourself. Why has everybody been to one of these parties but me?" Tina asks no one in particular. She smirks first at Myrim, then at Kal. "It seems like everyone here's either a model or a good swimmer. Not both. Well, cept' for Shrike n' me." She watches the Exalt splutter about in the syrup, grinning. "And I'm starting to doubt the former."

    Charity takes the news silently, then switches down the volume of her radio so that nothing but alarm sounds can get through.

    "We've got Remnant, HALO, and GLoG all here working on finding a cure. One of the GLoG members is a specialist in contagious diseases, so I'm sure there will be progress quickly. In the meantime, I think we should move you and your family to the mobile clinic so that you can all be cared for, and you can take to your sickbed as you should be. They've got the first big tent set up already in the high school parking lot, and they're prepared to set up a second clinic or take over the gymnasium if needed. There will be enough beds for everyone." Charity says.

    Ponona Blvd - Mitchal

    "How were you exposed? Was there a failure in your biohazard gear?" Mitchal radios back to the sick soldier. If the biohazard gear was working properly... then this illness can bypass it. Which would lead a lot of credence to the 'magical plague' theory.

    Lee doesn't have time to wring his hands and worry about it so instead he decide to take them to the clinic before it is filled up. He will start by having the adults who are still strong enough lead some of the children to the clinic while he picks up and carries whoever is left.
