Background:
Here is a brief list of each of her lifetimes (Most of the events are inspired by actual historical events, as best as Wikipedia has led me to believe )

1520 - 1530 London, Mary Sullivan, on artist

1531 - 1543 London, Buckingham Castle, Charles Bart, worked in kitchen of castle, she witnesses the end of the Boylen affair

1545 - 1551 Dublin, Liam O'Shea, Gravedigger

1560 -1569 Chelmsford, England, Sybil Waterhouse, sister of Agnes Waterhouse who was hung for witchcraft involving a familiar. In Chelmsford there were many witch crazes in the following years. Often related to familiars. Several Bast's were present in the town, attracted to each other and forming their own coven to stand side by side with the huamn coven. Wicce based, however, most of the cats (including Ellgawen) did not thing to stop the slaughters. (Note: This is something she likely has NOT told Alex about)

1571 - 1582 Chelmsford, England, Joan Upney, accused of witchcraft and hung.

1583 - 1590 Chelmsford, England, Geroge Upney

1606 - 1618 Ellgawen, Sweden, Barbara Rufin, she is accused of poisoning her son, is tortured and confesses to witchcraft and names several others involved, this starts a witch craze. She ends up helping Helena Rufin (Barbara's daugher) to escape the town safely. After this she vows to protect Gifted humans and takes the name of the city.

** Dormant for 200 years **

1825 - 1832 Georgia, USA, Ruth Twilliger, helps Ruth escape from slavery.

1840 - 1856 Georgia, USA, Virginia Salt, given to Virginia as a present when she is a small child. Ellgawen prolongs her death when she catches small pox but the girl dies at 17 anyway.

1858 - 1863 Savannah, Georgia, Lenora Hastings, Lenora is part of a coven (debating association still) working to prevent/end the Civil War in favor of the South. Union soldiers discover the coven and set fire to the home they are in, killing them all, includig Ellgawen.

1870 - 1887 Missouri, Sara Toole, teacher in small rural town

1890 - 1899 Missouri, Toby Nelson, young boy in asylum who is killed, despite Ellgawen's best efforts, by the doctors trying to 'cure' him of his Gift (Note: This is also something she doesn't talk about much, it pained her a great deal)

1908 - 1920 St. Louis, Missouri, Chet Rowls, Newspaper reporter for the St. Louis Post Dispatch, hung out with mobsters and flapper girls

** Dormant until present day **

I like... I'd do more then clap but they won't let me applaud you anymore and... well... you're married

I love how Smoke/Memphis gets to be in the middle and she almost seems to be winking a little... hehe...

We'll have to find a good pick for the bad guys. I'm seeing something Godfather like... Father Alvro sitting behind a desk with his white collar, a siamese cat on his lap grinning happily and a strange little girl playing on the floor infront of the desk

They have to be alive for the scrying spell to work!?

Where is the fun in that!?



Ohh... but back to business at hand. Smokie is staying with Rosie till she wakes up and then will wander down, will likely have all sorts of things to ask/tell Alex when she does.

I'm out of town this weekend so no postes from me till Monday.

He smiles at Marie when she asks for a cigarette. Pulling the one off his ear he slides it over to her and winks.

"Just a cigarette? I could offer you so much more..." That smooth smile slides over to her and then he pulls his eyes over to the Chief as they get their weekly breifing.

Despite the bad-boy image he keeps attentive throughout the meeting. Watching the slides, mentally taking notes. When they have finished he quips up.

"Got anything more on that victim? Name, age, occupation, family situation?"

So it's one of those... they walk up to the yellow tape, duck their heads under and when some green beat cop comes over and tells them they can't be there their superior shakes his head and says 'Let 'em in..' in a gruffy voice...?

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Halia


She watched as the door slid open and felt a wave of relief when an escape was finally visible. The relief was short lived though when she then realized that the escape was well blocked by the hordes of attacking boulders. They had to get to that door. They needed cover.

She had no ranged weapons, her party was injured and out numbered. Things looked bleak. But they had looked bleak before.

Pulling herself up a bit she looked out over the way they had travel to get to safety. There had to be a line in there that was relativly open, and as soon as she spotted it she did not hesitate to act.

With a cry she unleashed a spell and waited for the cover they so desperatly needed to rise up.

She did not wait for the icy protection, however, to turn to her cat. "Run... run for it!"

((Casting Ice Wall hopefully in a space that can block off as many nasty rock things as possible from their path to the door.
Once that attempt is over she will try to get up, pull her sword and help attack anything that is left in their way))

Yeah I figure Smoke and Rose are kind of out of things for the moment while Alex and Penelope settle things downstairs.

But there is a bit more on Katul...

Katul's Apartment
Tuesday Night
7:45pm


Night in the big city.

Katul stared out the large windows, looking through the darkness at the glittering lights below. He had plans for after dinner, but it seemed that they would have to wait a bit longer, one of his new cronies called in, said he had information he would only tell to Katul. It had better be good.

His blue eyes narrow as he watches the lights below, eventually the city would be his.

The intercom beside him on the desk lit up a small red light and a calm voice drifted through the blackness "Sir, Sargent Fansler is here for you"

Let him in he sent to the night sentry outside, paused and then added And get that scrumptus little feline ready for me, will you?

"Yes Sir" The voice said just as calmly. A moment later the front door opened and a streak of light illuminated the white carpet. The shadow of a man filled it and then the man himself came in. The door closed and with his excellent nightly vision Katul inspected the figure in the shadows as he tried to adjust his less the perfect human eyes to the darkness.

"Uh... Mr. Katul?" The voice asked, the head moved as it searched for somewhere to direct his call.

On the desk.... Sarge... you must pardon the form, I have a date tonight. Now then... you had business for me?

He watched as the man turned toward the desk and found himself looking at a large siamese cat sitting on the top of it.

"Oh..." The man said. And if he could smile in this form Katul would have. He loved to watch the surprise on a human the first time they realized they were talking to a cat. Katul watched as Fansler looked at him closer, trying to determine if in fact the cat -had- just spoken to him. In his inspection of his boss Fansler forgot that he was supposed to say something more than 'oh' and eventually the silence reminded him of that.

"Oh... I uh... well you know I work for the CPD, and well..."

Get on with it boy

"Yeah.... well I ran into something today, and maybe it's nothing, but maybe not and I just thought that perhaps you'd want to know."

Yesssss...

"Well of course you know about what happened to Eddie..."

Yes

"And the others..."

Yes his voice growing impatient now.

"Well the cops still haven't linked the deaths together really. In fact until Eddie they hadn't paid much attention to them. Drug killings is what they were thinking and of course those go to the bottom of the basket. But Eddie... man that was different. The guy was -fried- and on him was one of our pendants, melted to s***. The detective working the case... Joe Kelly. Well he starts looking around more into this one. He pulled up this cold case file, see? This whole group of people were just... massacred a few years back. And he's got the pictures laying out, and there is our symbol all over the place in blood. Man some f***** up s*** musta happened there. I was fresh out of the academy when it happened, but I remembered it. Everyone does. One of our own was in there when it happened, he lived but that sweet little wife of his didn't."

No... Fansler... not one of your own. WE are your own now, not those boys in blue

The sargent fumbled a moment then nodded, "Well yeah... I know... but you know what I mean. At any rate well that cop couldn't cut it at the force anymore, started spending more time with a bottle then with his job and handed in his badge. Kelly was his partner back in the day. Well I got my hands on the files and it looks like Kelly gave this old cop a visit was asking about the pendant too. Seems the old cop pulled himself out of the bottle long enough to give him Azazael's name"

There was a pause then. Finally Katul spoke up.

What is this washed out boy in blue's name?

"Alexander Sharpe" Fansler responded and stepped closer to slide a bit of paper onto the desk before the cat. "His address, phone number, and a description I lifted from the file"

Very good Sarge... you are proving to be a most useful asset. Now then... as I said, I have a date, so if you'll just see your way out...

"Oh... yeah, course Mr. Katul. Glad I could help." And he quickly started to leave.

One more thing Sarge -

Fansler turned and looked back into the blue eyes of the cat. "Yeah?"

Keep your eyes on this for me will you? This Sharpe fellow says anything more I want to know. And... be careful about it. I don't need you mucking up a rat job and expecting me to come clean it up.... alright?

"Yeah boss... Will do... " Fansler replied and then headed out.

As Fansler passed into the brightly lit entry room, blinking as his pupils tried to shrink back down to a proper size, the sentry put a white persian cat on the floor and pushed her into the room, only to close the door behind her fluffy tail.
