Nyx turned to Fred to answer his question.

He went to change his clothes I think before coming here.

Her gaze driftedto the group outside but she didn't seem keen to be the first to move.

"Duncan had to get rid of some gray and red matter, it made him look fat... with suspicion."
William looks at the group Fred mentioned.
"Well, go no idea whom they are, but I presume you do? Might as well unless you wish to awkwardly stand here like I do at every party where we don't dissect or blow stuff up."

Ah, you are likely correct.
Ah yes! The people present are Suzanne Gourand.
Fred lowers his voice.
Kindly be careful of what you say and do, she's quite easily infuriated.

Marc Gillard is sitting over there.
Fred points at the appropriate man.
He was at the theatre earlier today I believe, and again I urge caution when interacting.

Ah, the man over there is Chriss.
He's friendly enough, if a bit on the wild side as is appropriate for one of his clan.

Fred removes his beanie for some reason.
The final man present is Karl Nassau, childe of Mister Theodore and the domitor of Laurent de Fonscolombe.
His ghoul is a nice and trustworthy person, but I haven't met Karl himself so I cannot advise on how to approach him.
I hope the information is useful.

Nyx listened politely as Fred explained who the others were even though she already knew whom was whom it was more for William's benefit than anyone else's. For lack of anything better to do she checked her phone for any sign from Pierre before pulling out her tobacco tin and began the mechanical process of rolling herself a cigarette.

The Nosferatu obviously had nothing to add and chose to remain silent for now.

As they're still too far away, the kindred at the café don't seem to have noticed them (the fact that they may not recognize them is another issue).

After a few minutes Duncan drives up on his motorcycle and glances around the plaza, searching for anything out of the ordinary.  He parks in the nearest bike and scooter parking area, where Fred and Nyx left their vehicles.  As he turns off the engine and dismounts, the young Brujah waves a casual greeting to those seated in front of the café.  Duncan looks at his companions as he straps his helmet to the seat.

Have you asked them whether it's okay if we go upstairs?  He shakes his head, and adds:  You guys aren't much for mingling, are you?  Ah, well.  I've met some of them, except for the guy across from Chriss and Marc Gillard.  We can go over and talk to them, if you want.

The Tremere looks at Duncan, and responded with a matter of fact tone, albeit slightly laughing. "I make of it no secret, that I share no interest in social dillydally beyond my Chantry, my clan and this coterie. With the exception of a little hint of mischief every now and then with those susceptible." He gave a smile, "Of course if you wish to approach them, I wouldn't stop you and, I would mingle and act my part to be friendly and keep relations from going sour. Although Nyx and Fred weren't exactly jumping at the opportunity to invite themselves to the rendez-vous, so we just kept waiting for you."

The coffee seems closed.

Duncan's wave attracted attention, and he was recognized by Suzanne and Chriss. They wave back.
Karl (image right here please), noticing this gesture, turns his head to observe a moment, then turns to the other three to, seemingly, ask what was that about.

Nyx, Auspex on ears:

Nyx was almost done with the cigarette when Duncan turned up, she had been watching the group but hadn't made any move towards them. She turned to see Duncan when he arrived taking one last inhalation before discarding the low burning rollie.

I haven't met them before.

She shrugged her shoulders and coiled the long scarf around herself some more so it wouldn't get in the way.

Duncan listens to William and Nyx, and shrugs.

In that case, let's go over and talk to them.  It's always good to meet new Kindred, even if you're not a Toreador.  If the place is closed for the night, we can always sit out here and wait, or go somewhere else.  Although I'll warn you, my haven barely has enough seating for four.  One old sofa and a kitchen chair.

After checking for late night traffic, the neonate starts across the street waving for the group to follow.

Nyx nodded slightly following Duncan when he decided to finally begin moving. Her hands burried into her pockets as she crossed the street extracting fingertip less gloves which seemed to be stripy black and neon green. Unlike the majority of her clothing they seemed quite tight on her hands.

Ah, the man between Mister Chriss and Mark is called "Karl Nassau", he is the domitor of Laurent de Fonscolombe who owns the Fabrik club down near the harbour.

If we require a haven to reside in, I'd be delighted to share mine, a bit messy though it is.
Fred follows Duncan and Nyx when they start walking towards the group.

"I never understood the need for this Domitor term, it sound like a bad S&M steal, in Dutch we just call them owner or master of said ghoul. Or do they require their own politically correct name these days as well?"
William stated as he followed Duncan with soft taps as his cane touched the concrete and stood closely behind him as they reached the table.

Duncan responds to Fred's information with an interested  Hm.  But otherwise he makes no comment.  He crosses the street with the rest of the group in tow, although he stops a few feet away from the table with Suzanne and the rest.

Hello.  I'm sorry if we're disturbing you, but we came here to wait a while and discuss a few matters upstairs; yet I see the place appears dark.  Is the place closed?  The latter question seems to be directed at Suzanne, whom Duncan knows works here occasionally.

Nyx stayed to the back of the group as much as she could, obviously she wasn't great at meeting new people. Her hands have returned back to her pockets making her hunch over slightly.

(Suzanne) On some Sundays yeah.

The Brujah just shrugs.
(Suzanne) I think it's part of the vigipirate plan, some decree doesn't allow it to open.. Nor about anything else that involves alcohol and Tweens I guess !

She meets Karl's curious gaze an instant, then she shrugs.
(Suzanne) oh yeah right. Karl, this is Duncan, he's the guy we had mentioned... But these other two I dunno. And Fred, well you know already, right ?
(Karl) Hello. Karl Nassau.

Nassau stands and offers his hand to Duncan to shake without pondering much about it. He's not thrilled but it's mostly because he looks a bit bored.
(Karl) And you guys ?

Chriss just nods hello without much more etiquette, but he is welcoming enough and shows curiosity to Nyx and William, waiting for them to present themselves or say something. The Gangrel did offer a wide grin to Fred and Duncan. Mark doesn't seem to show any interest whatsoever, he seems to be in a stand by mode.

When  Suzanne mentions the Vigipirate plan as the reason the café is closed, Duncan shakes his head.
Ah yes, let's try to convince people we're in control by over-regulating areas that aren't even related--  Duncan bites off the rant and shakes his head again.  Never mind.  Makes as much sense as the damned 'Patriot Act' the Americans have.

Duncan shakes Karl's hand when he offers it.  Nice to meet you M. Nassau.  I've heard of you.  Always good to meet a relative.  The younger Brujah gives a slight wink at that, but doesn't mention what relation he's talking about... perhaps the clan connection.

Duncan also nods a greeting to Chriss and Marc, and continues speaking

We decided to find somewhere more peaceful than the Grand Theatre.  Between a visit from one of the local Lupines, and a badly-planned assassination attempt, it's a little hard to concentrate.

For most French people, a Dutch or Flemish speaking French sound exactly like "a foreigner speaking French" (well, they do notice Latin accents _Spanish, Portuguese and Italian_, but saxon and germanic languages are all the same). So they may think William is German, Dutch, Swiss, Polish, Danish or even further up north.

Chriss raises an eyebrow, seemingly interested.

(Chriss) Lupines ?

Karl nods at the greeting, and sits back. He can't help a smirk when the young Brujah mentions "relatives", but whether he took it more personal than just being of the same clan is unknown. Suzanne makes a vague head movement, inviting the four others to grab a chair and sit as well.
(Karl) A regular Elysium night it seems, he comments on lupines and assassination attempts, jaded. He gives a glance at Duncan then at Nyx and William as he says the next few words. I know you were, but were you both presented in Elysium ?
(Suzanne) Vigipirate is a great way to control domain on the mortal size, I guess- Wait, Lupines ?

It seems the female Calamity finally connected dots and shows a good amount of curiosity.
Marc vaguely nods, looking around. He mutters a few words.

(Marc) If Gosuin had any balls holding his stuff, this shit wouldn't happen and mortals would behave.

Duncan waits until the elder Kindred finish speaking before his response, to avoid interrupting anyone.  He smiles at Nassau's remark about a 'regular night in Elysium', and grins as Suzanne realizes mid-sentence that he'd mentioned Lupines.  He doesn't appear to notice her gesture to have a seat, however; he remains standing.

Duncan seems unsure about how to reply to Marc's muttered comment concerning Gosuin; and Nassau's question was aimed at William and Nyx.  So he answers Chriss' question first.


An old Lupine named 'Winemaker' delivered a bag of Kindred bones to the Theatre.  We happened to be inside near the door when he entered, so I had the dubious honor of escorting him upstairs, while someone else ran ahead and warned the Prince. From his filthy clothes, I initially thought he was some newly-Embraced shovelhead, sent to cause a scene.  The I noticed he was actually breathing.

It seems that some redhead-- most likely a new Toreador named Raekel, from the description -- trespassed in their domain, and ignored his warning to leave.  He also said he tried to find Chriss, but couldn't.  So he brought the bones to the Theatre.  He had some other business too; something about a missing Lupine named Nicole Lemoine.  Another old one, like him, not attached to any pack.  He says they can't find her in her usual haunts, so they said if we can find her he'll owe us a favor.

Nyx remained silent and at the back of the group, she inclined her head slightly in greeting but that was the extent of her communication. She seemed to observe everyone's movements and words with muted interest.

Karl's question seemed to jarr her back to the present, her bloodshot eyes darted back to give him her full attention. She seemed to be inspecting him for a moment and waiting for Duncan to finish talking before she responded verbally.


No of course not, I walk around in the city hoping Lambert decides to take my head off my shoulders for not seeking hospitality or trespassing on Domains. Or ya know, being booted out of my home.

Her expression was deadpan but her tone was laced with sarcasm. Then a smile pulled at her lips as she shrugged obviously not taking any kind of offense or dislike to the question.

Chriss' reaction is quick.
(Chriss) Oh, shit! Really? Vigneron, damn it man!

He mutters a few more rude words as he stands.
(Chriss) Was too busy with the goddamn Setites, no wonder he couldn't find me. I'll go and have a word with him, we probably don't need the Garou Nation as enemies right now. I'll see what he'll tell me about this Nicole girl.

He shakes hands with Karl and Suzanne, then with Marc (who seemed more reluctant). He goes on to offer his hand to Duncan, Fred, William and Nyx (in that order) without distinction or seeming reluctant. Once they've all shaken (or refused), he waves good bye, words out a "Seeya!", and leaves in haste, putting his bag across the shoulder so he could move faster. He leaves towards the main street leading towards the north-east ; to the docks.

The three kindred left observed the scene with interest, connecting it to the words spoken by Duncan. Karl seems the most interested about it, smiling and thoughtful. He first addresses Nyx with an apologetic tone. 

(Karl) Alright, stupid question... Maybe I should get a little more involved in the society's affairs... If a lupine is asking us for help, then we surely must be helpful, right ?

Suzanne lets out a sigh.
(Suzanne) You guys don't want to sit? And who's so dumb? I mean, who the hell tried some bad assassination attempt, and against who? Gosuin?
(Marc) Who cares, they're dead I bet.
(Karl) Was it really an attempt?

Duncan:

Nyx was in the process of extracting her phone from her pocket when Chriss got to her, swapping the phone to the other hand she shook it but it was obviously an unfamiliar gesture for her.

She watched as he left, then looked at the screen of her phone for any messages, again Karl dragged her attention back to the present.


...No need to be apologetic...

With what she wanted to say said she turned her attention to her surroundings for a moment, observing, though for what wasn't immediately obvious.

Suzanne's offer to sit was politely declined with a head shake as she found a comfortable spot to lean against a wall but still be able to get a view of what was going on around her.

"Sadly, for me anyway,The current acting Regent of the Chantry won't be presenting me to the Prince during a nice execution party tomorrow evening."
William said with an annoyed sigh, although his Coterie members could notice it was a mock one.

Once he was offered a hand, he polity shook it while giving a small laugh about Nyx's comment. Once asked about a seat, he took one at a respectable distance.

"I was told the assassination attempt was done by a ghoul with a knife. Either a despiration attempt, poorly planned and misinformed or it was to send a message. The Ghoul could have been manipulated."
