Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce que c'est?

Post by MadBull » Sun Apr 24, 2016 3:07 pm

Pyrrhocorax goes to the art school, taking with her the party members that will retroactively decide to go with her. She asks passers by if they know the man she (when she was still a he) had drawn, but only after judging whether or not they were less murderous than the thugs she had recently been killed by.

However Pyrrhocorax would be the first to admit that all humanoids look the same to her. She is not that good in judging people.

Lady luck is on Pyrrhocorax's side, and the first three people she comes across are not aggressive, yet they do not recognize the man on the picture either. When she comes across a fourth passer by, however, she is even luckier still.

"That's Stephen! He lives opposite my house, I didn't know he was into lichen, man, how interesting. I can give you his address, good luck getting your book!"

*he gives the address, very clearly still surprised his neighbour is involved in such a big lichen adventure*

Pyrrhocroax bows with a flourish to the person who gave this info.

"Why thank-you kind humanoid! This information is much appreciated, and we are super excited to be nearing our goal! Is there any chance you could tell us about him at all? We want to make a good impression if we are to see the book! What is his sirname? What does he do for a living? Does he have any family ? Anything else that would help us get to know him better!"

Nethach looks at Aryana, an eyebrow raised. she nods. he groans, then follows the phoenix down the street, a little ways behind him so one would not immediately assume that they are together

Aryana turns back to the still conscious thugs (I'm assuming the one whose leg was torn off has died from blood loss at this point).

Kairen remains intrigued about whether the markings on the wall represent some kind of arrow.

"I feel like checking things out in this direction, is anyone with me?"

"Sure!" Madeline decides to go with Kairen. She recalls Tyranitar, and she and Accelgor go to Kairen's side.

(The one whose leg came off did die, yes, as did the one Nethach shot through the head.)

Thug to Aryana:"We only just got here when the turkey approached us. We often use these alleys for our deals... I have no idea what else happened here today..."

The passer by to Pyrrhocroax:"Stephen, Stepehen... his sirname is, errrr, Brown! I think. I think it's Brown. He lived alone... he is bound to have family SOMEWHERE, not sure where though... I think he was manager of some warehouse! Yeah, that's what he did for a living... a warehouse further down this street in fact, very easy to find!"
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Kairen and Madeline , and whoever will retroactively follow them, follows the path of what others described as claw marks. If it were to be an arrow, it would be point up slightly. Kairen looks across the path possibly described by the marks. Nothing of interest. They walk. And walk some more, until Kairen's very keen eyes spot something.

Hairs...

Similar to the ones near the body...

they have no further use...now that no one's looking, time for some fun

Aryana closes her eyes and breathes in deeply, standing as deep in shadow as the allyway will allow. she clenches her hands, and slowly closes them.

the 4 remaining thugs feel their chests begin to tighten, and their hearts beat irregularly. she closes her hands all the way and lowers them to her sides. the thugs can feel the blood drain from their heads and the veins running up their necks pop. the massive loss of blood leads nearly instantly to massive strokes in all 4 victims, killing them, but leaving no visual sign as to what happened.

Aryana lets out a long sigh of pleasure, popping the joints in her neck I have so much power...that felt good...hopefully no one knows I was able to do that...worth it though

feeling rejuvenated after focusing her power like that, she goes off to join the people following the arrow

So... Stephen Brown....the Phoenix thought it was probably a good idea to investigate this warehouse first - if he lived alone there was unlikely to be anyone there to answer questions, but there could be at his workplace!

With that he glided down the street towards this place...

"Hey, look!"

Kairen picks up a few of the hairs and shows them to Madeline.

"Hairs. Just like the ones that were near the body. Maybe they are from a werewolf or something - that could explain the markings on the wall. We should ask around and see if anybody can identify where this hair might have come from."

Pyrrhocroax heads to the warehouse. "Brown's packaging storage", it says above the door, Pyrrhocroax knocks.

And Pyrrhocroax knocks again.

After a while, a human does open.

"Sorry for not getting sooner, but it's a very chaotic day today! For some reason the manager didn't show up! Anyway, I shouldn't tire you with that, what can I do for you?"
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Kairen and Madeline are joined by Aryana and go around asking people about the hairs they found. Most say they really are no experts on hair, a few call them perverts for picking up hairs from the street to then show them to random strangers. But then they stumble upon a dog owner, a woman with a large poodle.

"Those... those hairs do look rather canine. I've been breeding dogs all my life and I know dogs' hairs when I see them! Do they come from your dog?"

"Hello, my name is Pyrrhocorax and I am President for Life of the Rare Lichen Society and I think it may be your manager we are looking for. We were told Mr Stephen Brown has a rare book we want, but someone mentioned they had heard he had got into trouble with someone and was in hiding! Do you know anything about that? When was the last time you saw him, and was he acting strangely at all? This book is very important to us!"

"Rare book? In hiding? Well that would explain why he didn't show up at work! I knew nothing of this situation sir bird! And I was still working with him yesterday! The little devil, I didn't notice a thing! Oh man, wait until the boys on the workfloor hear this!"

"HEY! GUYS!", he shouts, "DID ANYONE KNOW STEPHEN HAD SOME RARE BOOK ABOUT LICHEN, OR THAT HE WENT INTO HIDING BECAUSE OF SOME SHIT HE'S IN?"

Uproar on the work floor, but no conclusive answer.

"Is there anything else you could tell me about him that might help? What kind of guy is he?"
