    Penal Company

    Lob the orc hadn't known what was going on until the beating started. He had just been debating whether to call a guard when they burst in and broke it up. He'd gotten so accustomed to following orders, that he'd dropped to his knees as well, even though he was on the far side of the room from the altercation. Nor did he see any reason to get back up again and risk drawing attention.

    Then he heard the punishment. One member of the mob only, sentenced to death? By torture?

    He remembered when he was arrested. They'd found his cold room, where the carcasses hung. He'd tried to tell them the meat was going to spoil, but no. They insisted on removing all the cuts, trying to reassemble bodies like jigsaw puzzles, trying to identify each one, notify next of kin. So much good food gone to waste.

    And none of his meals had suffered. He was always careful of that. It was important to him that they were butchered humanely. What a word - "humane". He looked at Jyarl, supposedly human. And they'd called Lob a monster.

    He didn't realize he was going to protest until he was on his feet. "This is an outrage! How dare you call us criminals? How dare you judge our crimes?"

    ((And damn him for trying to become a PC. *shakes fist at*))

    Edijar's Place

    Edijar holds his beloved close, resting his head on her shoulder. "I know. We all want to. But the best is all we can do."

    Edijar's Office

    "I could give Quinn a call if you need me to."
    Edijar offers. "I don't think we're on the best of terms, but she'll probably give it to you if the situation is explained."

    Penal Company

    Jason is eventually beaten senseless and restrained, taken away. Jyarl looks up at Lob as he gets ready to head out. "If you don't give him the lashes, you'll receive the five you were supposed to give." He says. Jyarl never said he was a nice man, let alone good. And what is a better way to punish a group of people doomed to die, than to show them just how horrific it could be?

    "I should study. But I think I'd rather curl up with you on the sofa and watch a movie," Charity says. "Something sweet and cheerful with a happy ending."

    Penal Company

    "Only five? I am surprised that civility is punished so lightly in this place."
    Lob says.

    And as Jason is being dragged past him, he moves swiftly, pulling out an improvised prison shiv (approved by Wolfy), and trying to stab the unfortunate man in the throat, to end him quickly. Humanely.

    He doesn't expect to succeed, but he has to try.

    "Then lets do that." Edijar says quietly before he picks up Charity, taking her to the couch to let her down and putting in a movie. He'll let the trailers run as he makes a couple cups of hot chocolate. In the end, he smiles at her as he walks back to her, setting the cups on the end table before settling in behind her.

    Charity curls up with her boyfriend - more than boyfriend at this point, she knows - and lets his strong arms and loving embrace comfort her from the hard day she just faced, and the hard day she knows will come tomorrow.

    She'd never imagined herself in medicine. She'd always known, from a young girl, that she was an artist. And yet, this decision, though it was breaking her heart every day, felt like the right one. Just like her decision to be with this man, one of the deadliest men in the city.

    Her gut still shied away from the thought of marriage though. Not because she was afraid of committing to him, but because it felt like tempting fate, after the way their earlier relationships had ended. Sunny and Carl had deserved their big ceremony, but she was content with this - a mug of cocoa, a silly romcom dvd, and the love of her life holding her close.

    "You know of him?"
    Vas asks Eileen. After all, it's not often someone knows his name.

    Penal Company

    Jyarl sees the shiv and prepares himself for the attack, but he never expected Lob to go after Jason. The greenskin is able to get past him easily, and the Valkyries holding Jason have their arms full with him and can't step in to defend the man. The blow is quick, clean, and precise, severing the man's carotid and jugular vessels, killing him in a matter of moments.

    Jyarl relaxes when he sees that the blow is struck, knowing there's nothing he can do about it. For a moment, it seems he's about to burst into anger, but then he smiles a bit. Rather than letting one of their own be brutally tortured to death, one actually did something about it, ending his life quickly.

    Maybe this group would be worth salvaging.

    He makes a gesture for the Valkyries to pull the corpse away and moves to follow them. "Clean up the mess, Lob. Then you guys have the next two days off." After that, he's gone, leaving them and shutting the door.

    Garn kneels there mouth agape. He... He didn't believe what he just saw. And from an ORC! Finally, he decides to come to his senses enough to actually do something. He stands up and goes over to Lob. " O-oi, Lob was it? Uh, l-lemme help wi' tha clean up, alrigh? "

    Lob nods as he goes to get a bucket of water and cleaning rags. Garn will probably notice that his hands are shaking.

    "I cannot believe I got past Jyarl," he mumbles. He dips a finger in the blood and tastes it. As he suspected, it tastes terrible. He grimaces. "Yes, we are definitely being drugged." He cleans his shiv first - they didn't even take it from him! - and then the floor.


    Leah gets up from her knees and looks to see how Ian is taking all of this.

    Ian stands slowly, his face impassive and serious. He's seen men die before. He's gotten men killed before. That doesn't effect him so much. Mostly, he's annoyed that the gambit didn't quite pay off. Getting officially appointed squad leader was a bit of a double edged sword. After all, hadn't they just revolted against a position appointed by their superiors.

    As for Jason, Ian would certainly miss his strength and manipulation potential. The man himself? Ian didn't know for sure.

    Though he doesn't stay quiet because after a little while he starts to speak again. " Ahh... listen Lob, thar be a lot o' bad blood between tha dwarfs an' tha orcs but...

    After a short conversation, Edijar hangs up. "Quinn says she'll give us the item." He tells the others with a slight smile. "It'll take a while for her to get here though, so do you want me to show you to the waiting area? I can get food and drink brought to you while waiting and I get prepared."

    [Barracks]

    Soldier Girl, also known as Nellens Latas, has found a spare bit of time for herself in the midst of a new rigorous training and exercise routine that was partly chosen for her, partly chosen by her. Her skill with modern weaponry is coming along, and she is brushing up on her close combat skills as well. It's probably clear to all now that she possesses some innate talent, but her precise nature as an exalt has likely circulated as well, so that may only make matters worse.

    For the moment, however, Soldier Girl sits crossed legged on her bed, using her free time as she may. She has set out five small dragon statues in front of her, each one coiled about a specific symbol- a crashing wave, three candles, a fan, a mountain, and a leaf. With these five simple symbols arrayed before her, she silently meditates.

    [Gate]

    Kirk arrives here after being called by Harnel. He's not sure why. Helping a random stranger isn't usually his sort of thing. Hrm, maybe he should demand payment and treat it as a NO job. That'd make Dipsnig happy.

    Kirk casually nods at the guards as he waits for them to address him. Remnant didn't seem like the nicest place for him to go, what with being an ex-AMEN member and having been shot at, and having shot at Mortal Coil members. Oh well, they have no reason to do anything to him now, hopefully.

    And of course they make him wait outside. Former AMEN member blah blah blah. They could have at least had the decency to give him some dialogue to reply to, or at least a post longer than one sentence. Shameful really.

    Makes him wonder how long it'll take him to get past that AMEN reputation to those who know about it. Dipsnig got over it pretty quickly, and Kirk had shot at him he's pretty sure. Oh well.
