The security reports of the event 00301 starts thus:


Preliminary report of events is:

The night before the event, Liarae Aradin arrives at her apartment building, she has been blacklisted from doing her security work after being fired by her blue employers.

Isteri Moro arrives at her new home with a security detail after the place was cleared. Isteri requests to have the house for herself for a few moments, this was deemed an acceptable risk.

Zofin Watari enters her work place the archives of Iund University for physical copies of literary works, she inputs the security code, but does not lock the door behind her. 

Patiri Kered arrives at the apartment building she resides in with one (1) roommate Kiren Band. 

Istevi Garon and Mura Zura arrive at the former’s place of residence and work.

At around the forty to sixty minutes mark, residents of Istevi Garon’s building report sounds of struggle and distress. They enter Istevi’s residence and wrestle Mura away from Istevi and call emergency services. The two involved claim to have become polluted by unknown means. Mura claims that the attack was motivated by jealousy.

At the request of Istevi, a call is made to Isteri Moro, who answers it. Contents are currently undisclosed as per the Blue Privacy Law. Request for the records of the call have been made.

Isteri Moro contacts her security team and reports that she has become polluted and thus needs a decontamination shower. Thus she spends the required five decontamination.

Around six hours after the event, Liara, Zofin and Patiri are next seen together, at the Overflow Street, which is an interest area because it’s close to secret emergency exit to Isteri Moro’s new home.

 


That is all there is to the report. Case closed on the orders of High Judge of Blue Affairs Janon Jonoro.

Isteri Moro sets up a meeting with her father Janon Jonoro. The first time they have seen each other face to face since she abruptly left. As per request, the bulk of their meeting is done privately, with their security in shouting distance and alert to any electronic signals that they send. The windowless office of their meeting was checked over and over for bombs, traps, surveillance and hidden weapons.

Even taking into account that Isteri's father is known for sentencing blues to death for a living, it is a bit much for what amounts to a father and daughter talking to each other.

They ask Lia to wait outside, and then they ask her to come in. After a second search.

Lia is used to blue security ridiculousness, but this really is a bit much. She submits to the search, though. No reason to make things hard for the security staff. 

Once inside, she crosses to stand behind and to the left of Isteri. "You called for me, ma'am?" 

Permalink

"She did," Janon answers instead. He looks less composed than when he walked into the room, but still fairly composed. "She claims that you have an explanation for what happened two weeks ago. And extraordinary evidence to prove it."

Permalink

"She does. Lia, dear, would you mind starting with the evidence? Something showy, but not loud, please?"

Permalink

"Showy but not loud? I can do that." 

A twist of thought, and she starts to glow, a form-fitting second skin of luminescent magicka covering her from head-to-toe. 

"Oakflesh," she explains. "It's a defensive spell." 

Permalink

Janon holds very still.

Permalink

"C'mon, old man. She said it was defensive."

Permalink

Janon shoots his daughter a look. "Okay, do you mind to... tell the version of events as you know them?"

Permalink

She releases the Oakflesh spell, nodding.

She explains what she knows of the events which took place at Milliways before she arrived - noting that all this is second-hand information from the others involved in the incident. 

"-and this was the point at which I arrived. I encountered Istevi Garon immediately upon entering the bar, getting an explanation for the displacement and the bar itself from him. I then proceeded to sign on as Security with the Bar herself, and spend - from my perspective - 6 hours on shift at the security desk. Istevi replaced me and suggested I speak to Isteri once I returned upstairs." 

She continues through the rest of the events of that 'day', meeting Gaemir along with Patiri and receiving skyrim magic from him, the witch tattoos Stephania gave them, Henry and the crystal magic they received from him, the Gemini pair, a side note on the continuing personal drama in the form of two new pregnancies... And then eventually she reaches the final 'day', explaining the blessings they received from Farienne, and the horrifying ending to their stay at Milliways. 

"Istevi called us shortly after we returned with the news of Mura's attack on him. While Isteri sorted that out, myself and Zofin and Patiri exited her home through the emergency tunnel, and returned to our own homes, where we took our decontamination showers. Since then," she adds, "we have been preparing for this meeting."

And that concludes the report.

"I gave them those plastic foot covers, and then I anonymously called the relevant services. I didn't want to explain them at my home."

Permalink

"I see. Isteri mentioned that the other people involved have been sent away into an undisclosed location while we negotiate... whatever this is. Well, how much do you want so you may give me their location instead of me having to deal with my unreasonable daughter?"

Permalink

Her eyes narrow, "I will not be bribed, sir," she tells him. 

Permalink

"But I will have the information soon enough. You might as well trade it for... say, five credits? Not counting the ones for your current pregnancy."

Permalink

She grits her teeth, wincing a bit, but - "No." 

Permalink

Isteri sighs. "He is just testing you. Not a very good test. Both in capacity and taste, dad."

Permalink

"Forgive me," he does sound honest and contrite. "It was not meant to be a perfect test, but imagine the cost to our nation if you were the sort that could be swayed that easily. I will do further checks, but that was the quickest one I could think of."

Permalink

She relaxes a bit, though still eyes him warily. "Understandable, I suppose," she says after a moment. Not appreciated, though. 

Permalink

"But, in a non-bribe way, what do you want?"

Permalink

She glances at Isteri uncertainly before answering. 

"...I do need a credit," she admits, "And... to no longer be blacklisted from security work." And of course she wants three or four more children and the guarantee that they'll be able to have just as many, but everyone wants that. 

Permalink

"That much Isteri mentioned. Sticking up to Arel Eteo will be delightful. I will submit your... group to a battery of tests, but I am not a Green and I want to think carefully about tests, but if even half of what either of you are claiming is true, it will be worth purchasing the current credits. And then I will see what to do about fixing the accreditation adjustments regarding twins and triplets and other incentives to keep you around."

Permalink

"Oh." Her eyes widen, "Thank you." 

She glances at Isteri, "If you're going to have greens test us, we should take the time to draw blessings for ourselves before we see them. It's not a perfect system, but it should give us some hint about whether they're trustworthy or not." 

Permalink

"Don't thank me, but you're welcome. I will figure out how to ask the question as a hypothetical, first. Then we will see from there. Isteri wants to spearhead the thing."

Permalink

"You're too busy and too under scrutiny. I can just be an erratic heiress with more money than common sense."

Permalink

She nods in agreement. If Janon Jonoro started throwing money at strange projects people would pay far too much attention to those projects. 

"We're going to need more trustworthy people than we have than just those greens," she points out. "Security, at least, and good service staff as well. And we really do need to find out whether other gemini are going to be born, now that we've brought this magic here."

Permalink

"Our preliminary tests didn't imply that any of our magic is contagious, but we will check." Isteri says to the benefit of her father.
