The group discussed what to do with Dennis Harrel and what and where to question him. The group disarmed and treated the two agents,, then secured them, keeping them away from Terri, but where the rest could still see the.
Using smelling salts, Andromeda brought Harrel back to consciousness. V.S. threw together a quick thaumaturgy to “Make the environment more intimidating”. As Harrel regained conciousness, he looked at the group, “Ah, so it was a trap. I’m glad I took precautions.” he then looked at Charles, “Imagine what would happen to that warren of your associates, should a former Soviet suitcase nuke go off in the castle above…” at V.S., “or how flammable that book shop of yours is…” at David, “Or how high a target to terrorists One World Trade Center is rising from the ashes of The World Trade Center”.. at Terri, “How explosive all the alcohol in Dragonfly’s is…” at Andromeda, “or how easy target your agent is as she tries valiantly to save your career”. Charles responded, "It is easy to make unfounded threats. Where is your proof? We have some questions to ask "
David slipped out, calling The Agency on the number he still had, asking to speak with The Director. Agent Ivanova took the call and David gave her the details of Harrel’s threats. Agent Ivanova interupted David, confirming that satellite’s have detected a radiological signal in Edinburgh Castle. David then called Serena Elessidil getting her voice mail. David then texted her, “Threats made against the tower, please leave now” and received a response, “She can’t do that right now Mr. Lytton”
Charles contacted Captain Luccio, at the Wardens, informing her about the suitcase nuke. She confirmed to Charles that looking for it would be futile, as there is a 50% chance of a wizard getting near it setting it off. She then assured him that she would do what she could to evacuate the White Council’s HQ (and the city of Edinburgh).
Harrel then spoke to the group, offering to call off his operatives and to honestly answer the groups questions, in exchange for his freedom, guaranteeing he would never be seen again, enjoying his retirement on a tropical beach somewhere. On their power, Charles and V.S. agreed, as the others agreed as well (Jane was compelled on her Loves a Good Story)
The group freed Harrel who then made several calls, each one consisting of a code phrase and “Operation aborted. Return to base and await orders.” Immediately, David got a phone call from Serena, telling him the three men in suits with guns had left. Harrel then confirmed to Charles that the man with the suitcase nuke would be leaving Edinburgh.
Charles then asked him about the drow, Harrel responded that they needed protection and were talented artist who could help Nikolai Tesla ensure that some of Tesla’ projects worked as expected. He had no knowledge of ‘the Skynet protocol’ confirming that the exploding systems were insurance should the Sisters go rogue.
Regarding Jennifer Vanderbilt he had no knowledge of her Technomancy, knowing only she was a really good Hacker, who hacked the pentagon with a Commodore 64 at Age 4.
Regarding The Master he knew nothing of him, saying it sounded like a character in a bad Horror movie.
Regarding Adrika Niranjana he confirmed he supplied her with the nuke and with other former Soviet weapons and items, but never any of Tesla’s stuff. After asking the groups interest in her, he said that he had heard from agents in The Company that she was seen in Jerusalem last week, and if his information was correct, she should have arrived back in the US, at Las Guardia Airport, yesterday afternoon. When asked what she was doing in Jerusalem, he said he had herd it was “archaeological inquiries”. (Andromeda confirmed that Adrika did board the flight and get off in NYC). He then said that all his contact with Adrika was through a third party, a Ms. Rebecca Abendana, who he described as a former member of the Israeli Miltary, and now a ‘fixer’ living in NYC (he assumes as all his meetings with her were in very public locations in NYC (Restaurants, museums, etc.)
At this point, V.S. opened his Sight and looked at Harrel. deducing first that the Amusement Park was haunted by the spirits of all the people who died there. As for Harrel, he was 100% pure mortal, motivated purely by greed.
Regarding the White Council he knew nothing about them, proving that his knowledge of Edinburgh Castle was he made a guess that Charles’ “Super Secret Organization” would use the warren of tunnels (known publicly) beneath the Castle.
Harrel then departed, followed by the group (who found the teenager who had his car stolen by Harrel). The group confirmed that the agents were dupes and Charles contacted The Wardens about the Nuke being neutralized. The group returned to NYC, Cameron inviting everyone back to The Flame of Knowledge where she would cook a celebratory dinner. David arranged Serena to meet them there and when the group arrived, Serena was happily chatting with Dolores about David.
Cameron then cooked up a gourmet meal, for everyone, to celebrate her freedom. Midway through the meal, the door buzzer for The Flame. V.S. and Cameron went downstairs, V.S. looking through peephole, V.S. saw Bast, who had evidently been crying. V.S. invited her inside and then upstairs. She then told everyone that Susanna Hoffman was dead. Her body discovered in a certain alley off of Times Square, missing her head. She told the group that something Supernatural killed Susanna and that whatever was used to kill her cauterized the wound as it de-capitated her.
Andromeda, eyes smoldering, took up The Spear of Athena, dropped to one knee, an oath to the Gods to avenge Susanna (causing Bast to have her hackles rise and hiss like a cat), saying.. “I Andromeda Spiridakos Demigod daughter of Aphrodite, Daughter of Jason, Emissary of Athena, Bearer of Yperaspízo̱ and Bearer of the Amazonian Queen Diana’s Bracelets, Swears upon Zeus and the gods of Olympus Revenge against those that have removed Susanna Hoffman pre-maturely from this earth." As Andromeda swore this oath, the others promised to look into it. V.S. asked Bast about what the other gods had to say, and she confirmed that Osiris said her spirit had yet to arrive for judgement.
