    Default SHEOL Inc.: I Owe My Soul to the Company Store

    Welcome to SHEOL Incorporated!
    We're a very dedicated private Employment Agency that focuses on matching the employees to the right employers. In the Nexus today normal specialized companies are simply not equipped to handle the many demands the ever changing nature of the Nexus. A business simply can't specialize do deal with all of them and some of them might be too rare to really make money off. Which is why SHEOL has gathered them all under one roof. Whatever your need we will find someone to deal with it, so instead of going all over the nexus looking for someone to help you, go to SHEOL instead.

    SHEOL, unlike MERC, doesn't only deal with mercenary work, we don't specialize at anything. That we leave to our employees who can specialize in a wide range of service, all to serve the needs of those who hire us. However we do support MERC's initiative to keep hired work fair and legal which is why all SHEOL employees are required to have a MERC license to guarantee good service.

    SHEOL Inc. Offices

    "Alriiiiiight." Kal picks out clothes based on the conversation made earlier. He's certainly taking this seriously enough to not be completely outlandish with his fashion choices.
    "So, is there a dressing room, or were you going to just let me get undressed in front of you?" Kal winks.
    [SHEOL Inc. Communications Office]

    Dys smiles, amused. "It's actually right behind you. The door there." She points out the door to the changing room which just so happens to be connected to the wardrobe. "But if you feel to be in a hurry..." The devil shrugs.

    Wally

    "Okay, just put on the clothes you like and we'll take some photos then." ANd so Dys will lead Wally to the changing room.

    Kal winks again, undoing tje top few buttons of his shirt suggestively, but then heading into the changing room to finish undressing. After half a minute (he's a quick changer) he'll come out in the outfit he picked out.
    "Well, what do you think?"

    Into the front area comes a tall, purple woman. Purple skin, purple tentacle hair, eight feet tall, surprisingly muscled... she might be recognized as Guill Dae, the owner of Mystique Physique.

    "I have a contract to place."

    "Nice, very nice." Dys remarks as her eyes takes in Kal's half-naked body, not staring, just an appreciating look at his physique. "I think I can pretty much guarantee you will do great out there." As far as she was concerned, Kal had a guaranteed place in the calendar the moment he stepped inside the office.

    Inside Office

    An imp with the nametag that reads "Raaj" sits behind a desk and looks up as the woman enters the room. "What sort of contract miss?"

    "I own Mystique Physique, which was recently attacked. There were attempts to harm my employees and myself. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt and all damage was easily reversed. The perpetrator appeared to be female, but I believe that may have been an illusion. There was a peculiar kind of magic used, but I did not have an opportunity to analyze what it was. I suspect that the perpetrator had some kind of demonic powers, or some other kind of unholy influence."

    "Bring her to justice, preferably. More importantly, discover why. If this was a random attack, due to beliefs, or if she was hired to do so. If hired, by who. I will be paying [Nice bounty; high, but not unusually so] for her incapacitation and some answers. Incapacitation only, such as killing her, will net [about a third of the main price]. Answers, if sufficient, will net from half to the full price, depending on how extensive the information is. I would also appreciate it if you... publicized this a bit. I want her to know that she has a price on her. [Nice bonus.]"

    "Very well, we'll put up a poster with your information and spread it around. With luck anyone will recognize something from your description and tip us off. Of course, posters cost money to produce and spread so there will be an initial cost." Raaj replies as he starts writing up something on his tab.

    And presumably the pair will iron out the details. Guill doesn't seem to pretend that there's a good chance of catching the villain, but she gives the imp all the information and will pay an up-front fee.

    ...to a point. She isn't willing to put down a solid up-front for the bounty itself, given how large it is and how she has no reason to believe that it will be fulfilled. She will pay some up front, though, and will sign a contract (after going over it several time and almost obsessively asking to iron out possible loopholes for both parties) that says she will pay the full price when the agreed terms are met.

    "Alright, next up is Sakura." The imps blinks, looks down at the page again. "Er, Sakura Murasaki? Just head to Darrian's office."

    As of right now, the wannabe model enters Darrian's office without knocking, taking a gamble that it'll show eagerness and initiative. Not rudeness. Definitely not that.
    [Darrian's Office - Later]

    Darrian looks up at the person who thought it was a good idea to just walk in here, but rather than irritated he looks rather surprised. Fettina? Here? Well, it's not that out there, but he's totally caught off guard. "Hello, I assume you're my last interview for the day?" He recovers very quickly. No need to blow his cover on something as foolish as being surprised.

    "Yeah, just do what comes natural." Dys comments as she opens the door for him. Outside an imp with a camera is waiting and they seem to already have set up the illusion of the forest he was supposed to pose at.
    The whole photographing can probably be hand-waved though.

    "And then... other Sakura. Frescot was it? You're going to Dys office, I believe you know where it's located." The imp then adds.

    "Oh, great. Talk about timing. Maybe I'll see you around some time, Sakura." The dryad stands, settling Gwydion on her hip. She gives the other Sakura a wave and heads off to the office.

    Once at the office, she knocks and presumably goes inside. "Hello." She says cheerily.

    "Hello." Dys simply replies, smiling back at the dryad. "So you're Sakura Frescot, I remember you as one of the ladies that SHEOL sent care packages to for Christmas. You remember that? It's nice to finally see you face to face like this." Dys prided herself with her recollection of names!

    The guy looks surprised. Damn. He probably thought he was getting to go home and is just being polite. Tina gives him a smile brimming with confidence, but a skilled eye (like "Darrian's") might be able to read the edgy, nervous young lady underneath. Wait... no. That might just be a ploy, too.

    "Fettina," She says with an easy tone of voice. Then, thinking it might seem odd, she amends, "Just Fettina. I've got a number after that, if you want it for your little calendar, but no last name."

    "Oh!" Sakura blinks and blushes at the memory of what that package contained. "Well thank you, it was very thoughtful." If weird, too. Not to say she never got some enjoyment out of it.

    "But anyway, modelling, huh? I actually don't really know a lot about this. I just happened to come in here and the person at the front told me you're taking pictures of people." She takes a seat, popping Gwydion down on her lap.

    [Darrian's Office - Later]

    "I'm sure Fettina will be just fine. Why don't you take a seat. I have a few questions to go over first." Darrian indicates the chair opposite him. "I'm interested in why you'd like to be a model. Or have you done this before?"

    Tina plops her butt down in the chair indicated, folding her hands on top of the little black portfolio she's been carrying around. "Once," She says, holding up the same amount of fingers and wiggling it around. "Once before." Chuckling, she adds in a low voice, "I can only say that we were very drunk." 'Very' is emphasized by a little sliding motion with her hand. "And it still turned out very well. So I would like to try again."

    "Modeling, not very hard when you think about it. Just stand in front of a camera and get pictures taken of you. Of course, any professional model would claim it's more than just that but I think it looks like you got what it takes and I have an eye for these things. We're going to a seasonal theme you see so you would fit in perfectly." Dys replies. "I take it that he's not planning to join you in the photos though?" She gestures at the toddler with a smile. "It wouldn't be impossible of course, but I can't imagine he'd like to see those pictures in his teenage years."

    Sakura laughs. "Oh no. Someone can hold him while the pictures are taken. He can watch mommy be a model." She smiles down at the child. "Do you pick a season when you take the pictures? I like spring; it's my favourite time of you. It's okay if you need to do another season, though."

    [Darrian's Office - Later]

    "It sounds like you enjoyed it. I hope I can make your second experience just as enjoyable, even if there's less liquor involved." The tiefling chuckles. "Is that an example of your work, by any chance? I'd like to see." He indicates the portfolio.

    Dys nods. "I'm relieved, both that he came back at that things didn't get to bad. But tell him it was a big misunderstanding." The evil reaches down and opens a drawer filled with SHEOL Inc. merchandise and picks out a Shemol, the SHEOL devil childproof doll (TM) and attempts to hand it over to the toddler. "Here, have a doll as a way of me apologizing. How many children do you have anyway?" She then asks with the drawer still open.

    "It's fine, really. We have three right now. Four in a few months." Sakura smiles down at Gwydion as his attention is grabbed by the toy. He's hesitant to grab it, until his mom gives him some encouragement. He takes the toy in both hands and sets about exploring it. New toy.

    "Great, there is an delightful kimino in the closet, it's purple too. I'll think it'll suit you." Dys points out. Of course, said kimino has an very deep cleavage. "I think it might work best with an push-up bra though, what do you think?"

    "Um, whatever you think goes good with the outfit I'm not the person to ask about what clothes look good for this kind of thing. If they're colourful and look pretty, I say they're good." The dryad giggles.
