We knew that there were cubs in the city, we just didn’t know where, or how many. A few days ago, both of those questions were answered.
Of all places, at the General Hospital is ‘where’, and initially we caught a Kinfetch for one of them after she popped and killed about five guards. We acted fast, though. Faster than I thought! Roman was the first to issue the order. He told us computer-savvy folk to clamp down on centralizing the threat and minimizing it in general order. Augustin went to work with the legalize, and we had this in the bag in a matter of minutes. We still have to get something in the media, though, but we changed what we could. “Psychotic patient went to town with a hacksaw” is basically what it read. Either way, we had it changed.
But it still sent off alarms to most of the supernaturals around. All the spirits went ape-shit, and now they are an high-alert.
The cubs – of which we learned there are seven of – went into hiding, contrary to our best efforts. But we still tracked them down. After getting a briefing of some nearby street-spirits and performing the Rite of the Questing Stone, Kelly was able to get in touch with the cubs and tell them what’s what.
We got them out of the hell-hole shack that they were staying at and put them up into one of our comfortable safe-houses. It was a pretty rough night, so most of them crashed, but Jack, Mara and Mike. Pike joined us later on in the evening when I came back up to talk to them about a few things.
I covered the Litany, the War of Tears, the basics of the War of Rage, Harano, the Delirium and the Impergium, the separation of the Stargazers and the current state of affairs and a possible Garou Civil War. Of course, I told them my side of the story of most of these, and possible interpretations. It might not be how other Philodoxes teach things, but this is how I did it. I also told these four that they are going to be going to Kingston to meet up with the Elders of Ottawa, and to meet up with their Den Father. In a way, I hope it’s me; I’ve already told them so much, but at the same time I don’t want them to get with Thunder’s Children.
