    Chasing the cab trying to steal Sharon!
    Pilot(Ground)+Reaction w/ Speed Demon, Chaser, and Edge: http://orokos.com/roll/676367 (5 successes with two 6’s)
    Edge Re-roll 2d6: http://orokos.com/roll/676369 (1 success)
    Total Successes: 6

    Not only does she keep up, but she’s gaining ground. With the cab at speed rating 4 and Foxgloves’ Phoenix at 7, Mr. Cabby will need to beat a threshold of 3 in order to pull away.

    The cabby does not try to pull away, he is not running away from Foxglove. He is hurrying to a nearby hospital. Foxglove follows him closely, and the cybered dude is losing ground. Feel free to IC keeping up with them until the cabby carries the unconscious (and spasming) girl o the ER and cries “I need help!”

    Alexandra Ostrakova Borisova lived a charmed life. her farther paid for the best schools and education, but he had to, you see she was a bastard and an elf. A father’s love cannot shield a child from the racism that seems to permeate the lower echelons of Russian society, even in the USA. He came up with a perfect fix; His old friend was now a Bishop in the church. The Priest dropped her into the church orphanage system and then carefully lost her in the paperwork then pulled her out the other end and sent her abroad, using money given to him by father set up a dummy trust fund ostensibly for orphans who showed a talent and sponsor then for a thorough education.

    The priest then kept close eye on her (playing the father figure role in her life). The father travelled a lot for his work so he could visit (just to see how his generous trust fund was being spent); first the English private school and Swiss finishing school the summers in Monaco, winters in Chamonix, the jet set life style.

    For Alex it was not the same, her passport said UCAS and it this identity called to her soul as though it would heal her hurts. so, she applied to Brown college to be closer and be part of it.

    The Father (via the priest) objected (which was odd, he never objected, to anything, ever. He said it would make things harder (whatever that meant, what “things”?) but if there was one trait the child had from her father it was his iron will, she had chosen Brown and Brown it would be.

    That was where she met Enrico: suave, educated, exotic. She was a freshman architectural major, He was second year magic major; two years of campus bliss followed. Then, when she was on her intern year in an architecture practise, he was in his final year, he changed. The change was slow at first but it accelerated. Started with him being more and more aggressive, then abusive (first mentally then physically). Then on Boxing day, when she saw the pleasure ripping across his face as he reached out to start beating, she started packing. She spent the new years tied to the bed post being blead by her half deranged, totally blood magic addicted ex. and so it was for six weeks.

    Believe it or not this is where things Start. The first two weeks were hell but if there was one trait she had inherited from her father it was his iron will she had decided she was going to survive this so survive she would, wolf was pleased with her spirit. By the end of week two she had convinced him she was docile and broken so he didn’t tie her up just locked her up and used her as a slave and a source of power, wolf was pleased with her deception. She started to work on then plan, she worked out it took two hours to put an edge on the cheap knives in the house she also figured so would he check, Wolf was pleased with her intuition. she realised that he was messing with her sleep cycle and eating regime. so, she set her own and Wolf was pleased by her defiance. she took great pleasure in planning her moves as he moved through the room, Wolf was pleased she understood.

    It was week four before she realised Wolf was always there by her side. quite odd she hadn’t noticed before but she did have a lot going on. also, quite odd how natural it felt and at ease with it she was. With that she realised she had awakened and that meant she really did stand a chance, the roles had reversed he was now the prey, he just didn’t know it. Wolf was excited

    when he stopped cutting her. She realised time was up he was saving for something big, the end but she was ready.

    He locked her in the bathroom, while he prepared. He came for her and she was prepared. She lunged at him with the knife she had stashed. He’d blunted it, of course, so her blow did little more that antagonise him. He screamed at her, a howl of rage, frustration and shear aggression, he screamed at her that he knew what she’d done, He screamed at her how he was ready for her plan and He screamed at her how it was time to end it. He dragged her out of the room by her hair. He was right and wrong, it was time to end it he just was ready to accept who would end it. he definitely wasn’t ready for the sharpened toothbrush handle she neatly pushed into his brain just under the ear.

    The bit she wasn’t ready for was the door imploding or the two burly looking orcs who rushed in. She stood over Enrico’s twitching body; weapon in hand. An animal snarl former tip mutated into a long howl of victory. Her eye settled on the two orc and she started to advance,ready for the next fight. Wolf consumed her and the two guys backed off and just as she prepared to rush them the priest walked in.
    the next few days were a blur, the next few weeks hazy, but by the summer term she was major in magic. a Thesis on blood magic was the results was a very good grade. and a plan; more and more time at the gym, more and more time at the dojo, church every Sunday and sell everything. and start hanging around the bars rumoured to be runner joints. while she is being cold blooded about this she is scared; not of what she is doing but of becoming a toxic. she has spoken to several priests about it and they all tell her to confess and that that the she is aware of the mortal danger her soul is in gives her a fighting chance

    To make life that little bit harder she has found out the priest is know for his Vory links and she starting to wonder just who the old man who came to visit so many times really is. but this is secondary she has prey to be caught and if there is one thing the child had from her father it was an iron will. wolf is pleased

    September 2073

    Alex sat head slumped on the table staring through the foam of her finished soy-latte as is slid down side of the glass. Cum laude…ooooo.. suppose she should feel some kind of pride or a..erm.something? Truth be told she was feeling nothing, except maybe empty. She had told herself she had a plan, really, she had a mission statement.

    Wolf plonked his head in her lap, his raised eye brow said it all.

    Hauling herself to her feet (more than two metres of hauling) her perception widened, arrows inviting her to all kinds of graduation events buzzed around her, she swatted them away.

    Starting with local police reports she scanned for activity as she walked to the gym. The gym she widened to the surrounding city, back at apartment she started nationwide then NAN and CAS finally the Tire. She set bot to feed reports to file and bot to trawl those reports for the key word or concepts. The hunt was on.

    When she looked up both her clock and her stomach told her it was well into the afternoon.

    She sat in the McHugh thoughtfully chewing on her food as she sketched out a plan a real plan. gym, shooting range, dojo, money, time

    “hi there mamaseta” said a smile on legs, the young elf sat himself down and arranged himself into his most “devastating pose”, “hi I’m.. ”
    “leaving” she interrupted. he stammered and gawped “your leaving, right now!” she as directly as she could, he pulled himself together and started again. As he started, she felt her hackles rise and Wolf flowed into her soul, she readied all of her power and fixed him in the eye
    “you’re either pack or prey” she said through clenched teeth. The realisation that he wasn’t just unwelcome but in mortal danger was rapid, alien and terrifying for the young suit “go! now!” she instructed in her best school mame voice. and tried not to laugh as he left in a very undignified manner. Then she realised her tongue was lolling out of her mouth and she blushed and took a a pull on her spoky roller (coke cola)

    Her train of thought destroyed she messaged EB the story….

    My Dear petre

    Gods blessings, I hope that I find you well in faith and body, it has been to long my old friend we must talk longer and in person have you people talk to my people ect. This is not a personal missive;

    I write in connection with the borisnova child. I understand she has recently encountered and conquered one of the great evils. This is of great interest to us here. As you now the patriarchs like to deal with evils quickly and try not to let dogma bar our path, its a fine line I know but we have our faith and our experience to guide us.

    I need the girl Alex to look into a matter for me one as a matter of faith and secondly as a small test, we have had reports of children being bled and having no memory of what happened. Alex, as a good child of the church will investigate and report back to you. the details are in the file please act in haste. please keep me immediately informed as to both the matter and the subject. I know it will be hard for you but we all have duties to humanity at large

    My dear Vladi

    I dispatched Alex as requested. Turned out to be a young boy just awakened how had stumbled on the wrong path by pure ill luck and happenstance. However, We have another problem, Alex flushed him out by using a child as bait, she says it was the only way because the trail went cold due to the amnesia but it was very heartless. She seems a little hardnosed, every cold and merciless. Luckily, she stayed her hand and brought him back with her rather than kill him. I have left him with one of the parish priests.

    My concern is with Alex, you know who her father is? he is our dear friend, this is his daughter, you baptized her, I am her god father, I don’t want to have to hunt her down as toxic.

    She stayed with two of my staff while we sorted the boy, Sister Olga took the opportunity to asense her. She came back with two main points: firstly, she has awakened and it seems to be shamanic in nature. secondly there was a fear running through her. The sister asked what the issue was and Alex told her she fears what she may become.

    Her actions along with her own admission, that she turns to fight more than flight, reinforces my view that, at this time, she would be a very blunt tool for the church if you use her that way i think you are planning. She could produce a lot of collateral damage. Having said that I know the girl, she is very iron willed, if we can shape her she will be a sharp sword to wield.

    I intend to speak with her at confessional about her fears.

    Will you be at the conclave at chrestachowa? I have a right of attendance and I could bring her to meet your people?

    Alex was entranced by the bubbles in the soda water as they rose up the glass, she’d quite at three shots and switched to soda and lime. They had only made her thoughts more lurid, so much for drowning your sorrows. She looked up, she could feel his presence these days, she didn’t need to see him, there in the corner lying down; just there; no comment or hint; just there. She’d tried speaking to EB but she was not really able to help able to help, she had tried but EB was too far down the path to empathise with her quandary.

    It was going to have to be confessional so better get ready. Wolf leapt up and darted from the bar. Back at her spartan, stripped bare apartment, just a punch bag, weights, a deact pistol and smart gun, desk, chair dart board (with steak knives sticking out). In the bed room she got out her Sunday best, as she finished, she picked up her crucifix, heavy, brass, its engraved surface familiar even with her eyes shut. Uncle Petre said it was a gift from his closest friend. Uncle petre always looked sad when he spoke of it. “He lost his way but found it someplace else” he would say and would not add anything else.

    Alex would imagine that this “friend” was her father or was it the man with the intense stare from the trust fund, he would come to check she was meeting the targets of the trust. Funnily she spotted him one day in the street, in London. She was eight that day, he was there sat in a huge car with the window wound down staring at her as she went into the prep school. She was sure she saw that car many times again but as she got old she just dismissed it as wishful thinking

    She dragged her mind back, carefully place the cross back on the bible by the side her mattress and headed for the door, she hailed a cab. She would have to sell her bike when she moved to Seattle she thought

    The church had that stone and incense smell all churches have. The acolyte greeted her as she rose from the alter. “is farther petre here?”
    “Alex, he is always here for you” he flushed and muttered “so are we all” and she muttered under her breath; Not another one!?

    The damned dress was a complete arse to get in the confessional box.

    Father help me. I fear I Will become the monsters I hunt!

    I too my child, can I turn you away from the path you propose!

    No sorry but they must not…. live. I have to hunt them.

    Ok we will talk about your fears then we will talk about your new friend

    Friend?

    Alex I’m your god father do you think I would not know?

    Wolf flopped his head in her lap and waged his tail

    I’m consumed by this hunger to hunt, to take the hind most, is this my… friends influence or my ex’s poison? Is it blood lust? I wrote so much about it but now I’m not hiding in the books, no academic detachment I’m worried. will I become the thing I hate the thing I hunt?

    Let talk and we will see, I don’t think so but I need to explain why I do not. confession is not the place for this conversation. let grab coffee and go play chess.

    four days later

    ok Mikey; the carousel nice n easy, airport pick up style. ok big bird, wait can’t call you that erm erm what should I call you?

    tonight, I will be Tatiana Giggle

    that good, right it simple I have to do a pick up and you are an unknown so if anything kicks off I have an ace in the hole.

    so I’m muscle?

    yes,

    so, play the dump hooker beard and flatten anyone if they start trouble?

    yes, knew you’d get it. you ok with the dumb Russian hooker thing? I think I might be uncomfortable with it.

    its fine, it’s just a work thing. I won’t be much use for long though people will get wise, and fast too.

    i know but tonight’s a big deal; so I need something special. Tatiana to be honest you are, even for an elf, quite a good-looking woman. the distraction alone is worth it.

    we need to talk layouts and fall backs.

    ok so I’m assuming you’ve been here before; so, you know the exits and such we’ll call the ……

    four hours later

    thankyou Mikey..well that went without a hitch…

    not out of the woods yet

    really?

    I’ll be happier when I know you have delivered the item. hitting you here is too messy

    I know that why we have a couple of change overs on the way home.

    hour later

    WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT

    I don’t know two guys and maybe a sniper? I think I saw something and just acted

    did you have to push me down the stairs?

    yes, need to get us both clear of the sniper fast

    ok, you say two up there?

    yes, I’ve only got a knife

    me too, so basement back up stash.

    next day

    hi

    you do it

    yes all delivered

    any problems

    yes, think hubby or lawyer hired some opposition, but that big bird girl can handle herself so we got it sorted

    she did ok?

    perfect, she got potential, she a bit brutal in a fight though.

    that’s not a bad thing

    well it helped me, those were two big guys. pay the girl and my recommendation.

    chears chummer

    After action report for operation Manhattan elimination, order of St. Sylvester

    our intel was correct, we found a little circle of wizgangers who’d “stumbled” into blood magic. not a hard job, after action report attached, expenses attached and intel report attached. you need to read the intel report. we bumped into an elf woman working on her own. she was tracking the gang trying to thin it out, she was very helpful and very useful, if inexperienced. I do not think she is a bounty hunter so think i will stay in touch as she could be useful again. Shecertainly knows the threat blood magic is. pity she devoutly orthodox or i would have brought her back for recruitment in to the order but that might be an advantage in our line of work.

    since graduating Alex had been working on two things

    1;- learning new skills to this end she has training to get her hand to hand and weapons skills up to grade. she has also managed to get her self a fixer and a rep as a good body guard/couriers/reconnaissance for upper class places and functions.

    2: she is starting her hunt using tools she knows, this is also pushing her to study Aztechnology and she’s starting to get a bee in her bonnet about them, she even trying to avoid using their products, which is very hard these days. she is toying with blood crystals and Ordo Maximus but she is focusing in more and more on to Aztechnology.

    to these ends she is lifing a very spartan life style at home father petre has insisted that she socialises outside of her work circles so she is staying in touch with a few of her new york friends but she feels that she needs to move, either Denver or Seattle is the next stop. What ever opportunity comes up first she’ll take

    It buys her time, If someone does smash the door down, will have sweep the main space first then rooms off the space. If it’s a team then they will need time to stack at the door. If is a mob they make a mess of opening it and she can start the hurt on her terms.
