Nyx watched as he turned to leave once more.

....Thank you...

She allowed him to leave without further pestering but remained inside until she had finished her cigarette before moving to leave herself.

Duncan bursts through the front doors of the Theatre, slamming it wide open on his way through.  He checks the foyer for any signs of life; if there is nobody else, he moves to the stairs and runs up to the deambulatoire.  The young Brujah grabs the edge of the doorway to help him stop; then he takes a quick look through the door to assess the situation.

While climbing the stairs, Duncan quickly sees the man that had entered alone, and that was speaking with Griffin before the Garou came. He was to reach the first turn of the stairs, when Duncan heard another shot, saw the man fall, visibly dead as half of the head blew away, and Celine appearing behind, holding a rifle and aiming with it. She aims at the Brujah, seeing a potential threat, but she recognizes Duncan and stops aiming, pointing the canon towards the ground.

As he runs up the stairs, Duncan barely has time to recognize the man running down as one of the ghoul servants he'd seen on Wednesday evening, before Celine appears around a turn of the stairs behind him and blows the man's brains out with a rifle.  She turns the rifle to Duncan, but he shows her his empty hands in a gesture that says "I'm no threat."  Celine lowers the rifle.

Duncan approaches the man's body, observing it closely yet making no move to touch it.  While looking, he speaks to Celine.


I heard the shots from outside, and they didn't come from your rifle.  Was he the source?  And are there any more?

Duncan can have a more detailed look at the body ; he was shot at least twice, as seen as the marks on the clothes and the visible wounds, as well as the trail of blood left on the stairs.
Celine shakes slightly her head and starts to climb up again, calm.

(Celine) It was Prince Gosuin's shots. He came with a knife and tried to attack him, saying "for Alicia". The Prince shot him, but a ghoul's body is resilient..

As she finishes her sentence, both can spot Gosuin upstairs, with holding a semi automatic hand gun (I'll have to find the proper model later, sorry :-/ ).
(Gosuin) You got the bastard ?
(Celine) Yes, master.

A closer look at the prince will reveal part of his vest was cut through.

Celine describes the attack on the Prince, and Duncan's face reflects his puzzlement.  He leaves the body to follow Celine up the stairs.

A knife?  That doesn't make any sense.  This has to be some kind of setup.

As they approach the Prince, Duncan looks at Gosuin's vest and comments:
Fortunately, Ventrue are resilient as well.  But he should have known that.  This is... weird.  When I heard the shots outside, I assumed they came from some would-be assassin, not his target.

The Brujah shakes his head.  The gesture appears to be a commentary on the assassination attempt, although it could be caused by the abrupt subject change.

My Prince, I didn't have a chance to tell you this earlier, but I think I know the identity of the unfortunate bones delivered to you by the Lupine.  I believe it was Raekel, the Toreador who presented herself to you on Wednesday night.  At least she claimed to be Toreador, although M. Kersten tested her blood himself, so I assume she was telling the truth about that.

Gosuin gives a look at his clothes when Duncan mentions resilience, and shrugs. The weapon the Prince has is Heckler & Koch SL 8 (a German type of weapon, as French companies stopped producing their own weapons since WWII or so ; they specialized in aircraft, either way, none of the actual stuff is very common knowledge)

Once they're back into the Deambulatoire, Gosuin crosses both arms. Duncan will be quick to notice Theodore being on the balconies, along with Gregory, and that Celine stays back, armed to shoot anyone coming up the stairs that shouldn't. Theodore is in a position to shoot from the balconies. [And the ST failed something ; I forgot to mention that Mikael left the Deambulatoire a bit before the Garou walked out of the Deambulatoire >_>]
Gosuin listens to the news, and nods, understanding.

(Gosuin) I recall her. I thought of her as well, as the other redhead Kindred of our city, Alicia Vanderstree, is too smart to think about bothering a werewolf. I think it's strange as well. Assassination attempts aren't so uncommon, to be honest, but this one excels in failure. Primogen Kersten is certainly skilled enough not to fail his tests, but my inner paranoiac is starting to think he may have lied for his own agenda.

He lets out a long sigh, bored and annoyed. He holds his semi automatic shotgun (according to my book >_>) by the canon, letting the recoil pad on the ground. He seems perfectly at ease with such a weapon.
(Gosuin) Speaking of Alicia, she probably thinks she's in danger, if she sent a ghoul of hers in her name. He lost it for some reason and attacked me before explaining anything. To me, it looked like this one was under Dominate. Kersten is certainly capable of stealing someone's ghoul for his own deeds, so I am not sure whether Alicia actually sent him or not.

He seems to be vaguely thinking out loud, hoping from Duncan to give him information or ideas that could untangle the situation.

It's Duncan's turn to shrug when Gosuin mentions the possibility of Kersten failing his blood test on Raekel... or purposely lying about it.

I I don't know much about that test, but I gather it reveals one's clan... and maybe a little about one's lineage, although I'm only guessing from things Claudia said when she tested me.  Mlle. Raekel certainly acted like a Toreador.  I know that doesn't mean anything, but this Winemaker fellow said she was asking about some powerful item.  She could have been sent here by someone in the Camarilla to look for that Tremere artifact.  The timing of her arrival was certainly right.

Her red hair is not the only reason I believe the remains are hers, either.  After Franz and Jean-Pierre's... 'debate' on the plaza, I saw M. Kersten arrive with those two apprentices; and this Raekel rushed over to introduce herself.  She mentioned a mutual acquaintance to him; one Aisling Sturbridge.  It sounded like she was name-dropping, to sound important; but the Regent seemed unimpressed, and less than pleased by her interruption.  I believe that's why he took pleasure in drawing her blood with that letter opener during her test, to punish her for her presumption.

As for the late assassin on the stairs... I'm too new to Bordeaux to know who might have sent him, or why.  It just seems like it was meant to sow chaos, which to me smells like the Sabbat.

Duncan takes out his phone, showing it to the Prince.
With your leave, I think I'll call my associates outside.  They also heard the shots, and are on the lookout for any latecomers to the party.  I'll inform them that he seemed to be alone, so they can stand down.

(Gosuin) It all comes down to this item. If the Tremere lied about having it, they may have lied about its localization as well, since this wolf's hangout is the Park, basically at the opposite of Jacob's domain. If the Camarilla did send her, then they entrusted her with a mission beyond her capacities. Amateur move.

The situation seems to annoy him to a certain point,
(Gosuin) I don't think Kersten responds well to names and status, so I have to agree with you. I'll convoke Alicia and have a word with her.

He nods when he sees the phone.
(Gosuin) Yes, you should leave. Celine will call the police, before some curious mortal with good ears does it, so you shouldn't stay around.

Duncan listens to the Prince's words, and nods in agreement when told that he should leave.

Yes, sir.  I'll be going then.  If I find out anything about the missing Lupine, I'll let you know.
Duncan turns back toward the stairway, but not before he passes close to Celine and tells her:  Good shot.  Then he's out of the deambulatoire and heading downstairs.

As he moves down the staircase, Duncan dials a number on his phone.  While it's ringing, he pauses to look at the ghoul's body again, as if he would like to stop and investigate; but he continues toward the exit.
