Seeing Red


Thank you for taking care of the dry cleaning this week.  While I'm certainly thankful that I was not physically harmed, the social embarrassment and damage to my clothing was almost more than I could take.  I thought that my reputation in the city had been ruined before I could even establish myself, but it appears that the others were less interested in my appearance than in whatever shenanigans they were up to.  Ghosts, angels, and Superheros?  In my childhood I would have said that my own kind were complete superstition, so I guess anything is possible.  This I know for certain; The "Superhero" activity is centered around this Club Orpheus that is currently serving as the location of Elysium. Two people I have met may be connected to this. Serendipity, the Malkavian, and Nyxian the owner of the club.  My contacts in the local media have pictures that clearly show someone that looks exactly like Serendipity running around like some comic book buffoon.  I've heard that one of the patrons had a run in with Nyxian, and were soundly defeated.  His powers are rumored to be outside of what my kind are capable of.  He is either something very old, or something else.

I'll need you to assist me in following up on these things. Scout the area surrounding the club during the daytime.  See what the word on the street is.  Check into the real estate records for Orpheus.  See if you can figure out who Nyxian is.  I'll take a look around one evening myself.  There's a whole lot more going on here, but these are the leads I have.

Next, and more importantly, we'll need to start preparing for a party. As the newly named Primogen of my clan, I'll need to provide some excellent entertainment to prove that the Prince's selection was not in error.  Spare no expense.  It should be easy to impress most of the kindred, but it's the rest of my clan that I'm worried about.  I barely know any of them, or their tastes. So lets not doing anything outlandish  yet.  Tasteful and conservative this time.

We'll have the paperwork for the haven this week.  It's certainly taken long enough.  Let's get the rest of the collection moved ASAP.  I don't like the idea of being so far away from it for this long.  I've begun to look around for items that should be added, but I'd like to get everything moved and take inventory before I make any more purchases.

Finally, some good news for you.  Until further notice, I won't be asking you to undertake any more "dirty work".  It would seem that one of my brethren overdid it recently, and I don't have the stomach for it right now.  Mindy wasn't much, but she had value. Her passing could have been avoided.  You have to know your prey, and how far you can push.  Not everyone can figure that out it seems.
