    Mrs. Bloodplunder stays quiet. She can't hit things yet, so she's not paying much attention to the conversation. She's more interested in the surroundings, and specifically looking for anything that looks like it might be a polymorphed demon. After all, chained dude hanging above a magic magma pool? Could be a decoy; the demon may be somewhere else, hidden, to prevent people from unbinding it.

    Roberts walks over to the brain shelf and peers intently at the jars, rubbing his chin thoughtfully. "The fact that you're looking at anything other than the brain suggests there's an elephant in the room. Which brain appears to be more complex than ours?"

    "I have two elf brains. One is from a 'young' elf of about a century. It's very simple. The other is from a much older elf. Far more complex. They mature very slowly, but if they are permitted to live long enough..."
    She shrugs. "Yes, they can out-think us."

    The woman points to the relevant brains as she speaks. "Another interesting one is this dryad. More complex, but only in one section. I posit that is their connection to their tree, as I have seen similar complexity in another telepath brain here. This one human."

    Surprisingly enough, there isn't any other real features of this area. Except for a pair of large feathered wings that look like they've been cleaved off, and a golden sword that hasn't been touched in a long time.
    The man looks at the wizard.
    And then speaks.
    "The name's Gabriel, ruler of...of...the Heavens. Or Hell if you believe that imposter..."
    He looked back down at the ground and sobbed again, more tears running down his body.

    "Well the solution to the elf problem is simple, isn't it? Just extend the lifespan of humans, and see how advanced the brain of a human of similar age is."

    Because that's totally a simple solution.

    It would seem that Roberts thinks it is.

    Supporting Clarissa might not be Jane's best idea ever or even in her best interests. Because Clarissa is currently Giant!Clarissa and if she were to fall, Jane might go squish!

    It doesn't help that her abdomen is shooting fireballs and lightning bolts either.

    "We don't necessarily want her dead; we want her to at least fool the kobolds into thinking she's responsible." But Ekkehard will dump the body a short distance away and go back to begin work on blocking the only exit from the house.

    Kribulkin Street

    Zefir nods for now and helps Ekkehard to block the only way out. His eyes slide to the body from time to time, just to be sure she won't wake up.

    Abandoned looking Factory


    The factory was closed a few years ago and time has taken part on the building. The glasses are milky and in some parts broken, but still block the view into the building. The walls are filled with graffiti, even the door isn’t visible anymore. Rumors appeared that a ghost lives in the building. Some people have heard strange noise, like a hissing snake or the sound of Iron chains.

    A car drives up and stops in front of a giant ‘E’ graffiti. A man wearing a mask comes out. He heads for the boot and drags out a barrel and a blanket. He goes to the ‘E’ and knocks three times. After a few moments a part of the E slides inside and a man looks through the secret door.

    “Oh boss you are back so soon? “ The man says.

    “Yes. I have some private business to do. Bring me up to date Darius and then take the car to the others.” The masked man replies.

    Darius takes a step to the side offering the masked man a way to enter. From the Inside the building is brand new. Walls got some extra cover to keep all noise inside and a second row of Windows was placed to make sure none can look inside. Many boxes fill the area and the scent of gunpowder lies heavy in the air. A scent Zefir enjoys most in this place as he listens to Darius.

    “All your employees are on duty. The twins are in north side at the birthday party while Greg and Sam went to the town fest. They won’t be here until tomorrow.” Darius answers. He looks worried at his boss. It’s uncommon that he appears here without a reason. Darius just hopes his boss isn’t here to shut the whole things down.

    “Good. Now take the car. I’m in my test area. Call me if something happens.”


    Darius nods and takes the keys. He seems to be relieved. He hurries outside to do as asked.
    Zefir in that time takes the elevator down. It only needs a few moments until the door opens again and reveals a gate. Zefir goes over the security tools like DNA scan and password to open the gat. Behind it he finds a big hall, near empty. He places the blanked in the mid and lays the dragon egg on it. Now he needs to wait.

    The woman shakes her head. "Tsk. You should know better than that, Dr Roberts. The human brain does most of its development in childhood. Very little changes after puberty. Before extending the lifespan would do any good, we'd need to find out the mechanism by which that elasticity is turned off, and stop that from happening."

    When he mentions the second part, the woman points her finger. "Caution. We don't do kidnappings or murders. We let others do the killing, and simply salvage the remains. Any experiments on live subjects should be done far from the city."

    A burly man opens the trap door and exchanges an envelope of money for the body bag. Unless more interaction is needed at the door - in which case, he'll do that.

    If not, the body will be carried in and flopped down on the table, near Dr Roberts and Professor Bauer. There. Now she has a name.

    It's a little sad and a lot hilarious that children know more about basic nutrition than Justin. Tito is correct, there is no milk in the fridge. Any that might have been left there would have gone bad by now. Instead she finds a box filled with snack food. A pyramid of chocalate bars, several boxes of something called "fancy lad snack cakes," more Cola than a single person could ever need, and about a million of those little cheese and crackers snacks with the little red stick for scooping the cheese. How Justin's teeth survived is nothing short of a miracle.

    Tito gets the same as his sister. His fingers phase right through the cats head and are met with nothing but chilly air. The cat seems unfazed by this.

    Back in the bathroom, Justin scrubs furiously at a spot on the floor. "Out damn spot! Lily would probably get a kick out of that. She'd probably keep parts as trophies to show off when Waterstrider comes back. Imagine her showing off fangs or feathers of things she caught herself."

    It's a humanoid, the face is covered with mainly skin, with some brown fur on her cheeks and chin. There is also bright pink scales on the forehead and onto the bridge of her nose. Yes, pink.

    She has long hair, slightly bloodstained form the two dozen itty bitty stab wounds in her back. Looks like someone tried to kill her with a scalpel, only for her to die from that axe wound in her chest. And judging from the blood stains on her knuckles, she didn't make it easy.

    Her chest and upper back is covered in thick fur, but her abdomen is covered in more of those pink scales. Her arms are furry at the shoulders, scales at the elbows, and skin at the hands. Her legs shift from scales to fur, and back to scales at the feet.

    She has a long tail, too, which is almost entirely skin except for a little poof of fur at the end.

    "Hmm. Peculiar. It looks like some sort of hybrid, presumably the result of multiple generations of cross-species breeding." Roberts rubs his forehead, peering closely at the corpse. "And unfortunately it seems that whoever was responsible for...acquiring this corpse...did a rather poor job of it. I hope they didn't damage anything too important." He reaches down with one hand to lift the head up and make sure there's no damage there, "I hope the brain is still intact. Otherwise this will probably be of little use."

    The head seems uninjured. All the wounds are premortem... and even the axe wound might not have damaged anything too bad. She seems to have dies of blood loss, but there's still enough in her to collect a sample with some work.

    It is not tell-a-pulting, it's staying in exactly the same place. Maybe it's your problem, little thing. You ever think of that? Maybe your fingers are tell-a-pulting. "Meow!" And while we're at it, minus ten points for telling it what to do. If it could tell-a-pult, it wouldl tell-a-pult all it pleases, and you'd have no say in the matter. "Mrrow."

    The cat jumps down from the ball return and walks up to Lily.

    This is you chance to climb the ranks, little thing, the other has displeased it. "Meow."

    Justin brings his train of thought back round into a circle. "What about Tito though? I know he's not the hunting type, but does he have any hobbies?"

    Tito takes one of the cheese and cracker packets and looks it over. "Weird. It looks like some kind of biscuits or something, but I don't know what the red or orange things are."

    "Maybe if we open one..."
    Lily says, trying to open the packet.

    "No! It doesn't belong to us!"
    Tito says, too late.

    Poor kitty gets ignored!


    "He cooks. He loves to cook. He seems to enjoy the fish and crab trapping. But I just never see him playing at anything, except when Lily starts something and pesters him to join in."
    Brand says. There's a bit of worry in his tone.

    "First I am going to try and identify the three...elements...that have gone into this strange creature. Then I shall have to see if you have suitable samples of the three separate species, and compare them to the results of their combination. Hopefully this creature is one part human, assuming it is only three that went into its creation. If that's the case then the analysis may well show some degree of reduction in the complexity of certain elements of the brain. If there is no human element to this creature I'm not sure how much value it will hold to our project here specifically. Probably still interesting to investigate, but not as much of a priority."

    And with that all said, Roberts gets to work on looking for anything that may hint as to the origins of this creature. Facial structure, ears, the shape of the tail, generally anything noteworthy on the creature's exterior. No poking about inside just yet.

    The packet is opened without any resistance, except maybe from Tito. It's all still fresh so there's no ungodly smell or anything. Just some rectangular crackers, a plastic spreader stick and some cheesy spread.

    Wait, ignored! What? Hey! There is a cat here and it is meowing! When a cat wants to be the center of attention it is the center, understood? What's so special about that little thing anyway? "Mrrow?"


    Justin thinks about it for a second. "We all have different things we find fun. If he gets real enjoyment out of fishing and cooking instead of playing, maybe that's okay. If you really are worried, maybe..." He trails off. "Brand, can I ask you something really personal?"

    Not a lot that is helpful. Facial structure is within deviation range for both humans and elves and a couple of other species. Nose is a bit odd, obviously nonhuman but not fitting the structure of any other species off of the top of my (and probably the doctor's) head. If he checks the mouth, he will probably find that the front teeth are a bit larger and sharper than a human's, but she still has a full mouth of omnivore theeth. The ears have no ear lobes, are pointed, but are also very deep like animal ears.

    The tail is somewhat rat-like, being long and mostly skin-covered, but the fur is not rat-like. It's rich and full, in some places very long. The hands are of a more or less basic four-fingers-and-a-thumb design, of slightly different proportions than that of a human. The nails are more fused to the hands than most races, keeping them from being real fingernails. The toenails are similar.

    Long story short: if it is a hybrid, the exterior isn't very helpful in finding what went into it.

    Also, what kind of race has bright pink scales?

    The cultists begin to chant as their goddess shouts at Dave with hundreds of sharp-toothed mouths popping out of every vacant space in the area! She's not just speaking in Common! She's speaking in every language known to her and some that aren't!

    "No it won't! You're lying! Make the pain go away!"

    Have some more earthquake! And maybe a pillar or dozen of fire this time. That way it'll be impossible for Dave to keep his cool!

    Tentacles and monsters spawn in and nightmarish creatures beyond anything a human can normally perceive or interact with converge on the emergency room!

    And here comes an asteroid shower raining down on Dave's clinic! Or attempting to, anyway! And there are sacrifices to Clarissa ongoing in the waiting room! Oh, and there goes the power, maybe!

    It is indeed enough, though luckily the power doesn't go out.
    Dave flowers and stomps his foot, causing a rather loud sound, enough to hopefully shut everyone up.
    Dave's control dissipates the flames, most likely sends these dirty cultists out of his clinic, and probably halts the asteroids. Because the craziness needs to STOP so he can get this done.
    As his anger bubbles over, Dave stares Clarissa dead in the eyes and speaks.
    "Listen here! I am a doctor, I've saved hundreds from crazy diseases and conditions all the time, if I say you're going to be okay, you'll be okay, SO I'M GOING TO HELP YOU!"
    He wiped his hair back and pointed at the table. .
    "Now...get on that table and put your legs up...while I'm asking nicely."

    The bank manager still has a pulse and stirs noticeably when Gelley tries to wake him, but he doesn't look like he'll be standing under his own power anytime soon. The best he can do is mumble out a disjointed slurry of gibberish and mush-mouthed noises, drooling over the floor in the process.

    Which is a real shame, 'cause the big hand scanner on the control panel to get the door to open prob'lly isn't gonna accept Gelley or Dr. Dec's handprints.

    Meanwhile, Decibel tries to punch a ghost! This is exactly as effective as you would think, succeeding only in forewarning said ghost it's presence has been detected. The ethereal cloud collapses in upon itself, re-entering the visible spectrum as it takes once more a humanoid form.

    Yeeeaaah, that ain't gonna work to well, buddy. Suggest you knock it off 'fore I get mad.
