From the Brimstone

Mephistopheles was keeping rather low key recently, for unknown reasons.  For some reason, however, he decided to continue his outreach and look deeper into the love life of Miss Elena Lynn, namely, by calling out Nickolaus Richter.  Mephistopheles asked him a number of various questions, starting with something as crude as “Was she good?”  in reference to the girl it was rumoured Nickolaus had a few interesting public occurrences with.  His interrogation continued, asking Nickolaus if he loved the girl in question, but the most prominent exchange between the two happened from a much more rhetorical baited question.

“How long will it take you to break her heart?”  A jibe, likely.  The response?  “Until I see her again.”  Mephistopheles grabbed the back of Nick’s shirt, spinning him around and punching him in the jaw.  The warning was there.  Where Elena was involved… it appeared to be… Messy.


The Chase- Demon Style

Cheri Noble is a beacon for trouble.  It’s odd having a vampire that continuously seems to find a way to become a victim… or is it that the fairly good vampire seems to attract those more malicious of the supernatural world?  Could it be that they are drawn to her light?  Whatever the case Cheri was on the run again, running from the goons of the elder vampire who turned her and forced her to marriage all those years ago.

Luckily for Cheri Toronto has a resident half demon who fights for good, or, namely, for Hunter Investigations.  Sven Hazard stepped up to protect his friend (and potential love interest?) Cheri, using his demonic aura to take the two from the roof of a building down to the basement, ultimately landing in a sewer.  During this chase Sven also managed to hot rod an old car.  The car in question was about to be junked so the owner would have thanked Sven for stealing it.

The only thing known is that Cheri and Sven got away… but to where or for how long is anyone’s guess.

Old Vampires Show New Tricks

Do you know that creepy feeling, the one where your flesh turns to goosebumps and your hair stands on end? It’s that feeling that someone is watching you, following you. That was the feeling Cheri Noble, the city’s most recognizable vampire, felt since the moment she’d risen for the day. The feeling was not unwarranted in the least as Cheri was truly being followed by men in black, vampires that she was sure stepped out of a nightmare of her past. That was what she told the ecstatic teenage Exorcist, Angelus Gabriel, when he literally ran into her.

Cheri led Angelus to hide in an alleyway, where they could talk a little more about the situation. Unfortunately, two of the vampires on Cheri’s trail appeared in the alleyway, chasing Cheri and Angelus from the alley. Cheri literally ran into the arms of the elder vampire that had turned her so long ago, forced her to marry him. Angelus attempted to free Cheri, tugging at the ancient fiend’s arms—even after being swatted into a wall. In frustration, Angelus began to curse the vampire in French, which abruptly lapsed into the ancient language of Exorcists to accidently call a swarm of poltergeists to attack the elder one, who vanished. But not before leaving Cheri paralyzed by the toxin of his vampire kiss. After fending off the swarm’s attack on him, Angelus enlisted aid via Cheri’s cellphone.

Skye, a witch, took Angelus and the paralysed vampiress back to his house, where he tried a couple healing spells and a ritual with spelled blood in an attempt to cleanse Cheri’s body of whatever was afflicting her. The healing spells and ritual blood succeeded, but silver scars remain to mark the encounter. Cheri is once again as well as she could be, given that the vampires still remain out there…waiting.

Man Kidnapped Found in Park

It was just another day in the neighborhood.  Elena Lynn was in the middle of a back bridge, kicking over into a back walkover when Cheri Noble and Cal Sarrion appeared on the scene.  Something quite peculiar seemed to be going down.  Last evening Nickolaus Richter was abducted from his home, his bats left alone and defenseless… by none other than a blonde haired man who appeared to have the same eyes as him; his father.

Elena noticed Cheri and Cal and moved closer to see what they were looking at.  It was Nickolaus, on the ground, appearing to be unconscious.  Doing what any responsible person would, Elena knelt down, hand on his wrist checking his pulse.  That was when things started to get a bit odd.  Ansel, Nickolaus’ father, stepped out from the shadows and mentioned how interesting it was that it was a human that touched him, and that he thought for sure that it would be the vampire, Cheri.

Why it would prove interesting became apparent when Nickolaus opened his eyes and started to proclaim his undying and everlasting love for Elena.  Together Elena and Cheri worked, Elena distracting him while Cheri tested his blood to see if he had anything in his system.  It appeared that six love potions were used on him, and at least four spells to boot.

While Cheri may be a healer, spells are out of her realm and depth.  Will she possibly be able to save Nickolaus before he ends up getting himself into too precarious a situation?
