*Yang nods to the scourge, but keeps his mouth shut. He looks curious and indeed just listens in curiousity. However he is very polite and respectful.*

Body Count

He actually turned his head to regard Lucas for a few moments before his face turned back towards the two in front of them.



Lucas Greenson

His response was cryptic "The results are...interesting enough that the Prince was called and will be here shortly. "

And that was all that they could get out of him. He did not invite them to sit, they where vampires they didn't get tired like humans did. And they would likely sit in quiet until the prince arrived, which was very shortly.

Dominic gave another small nod at that. He hadn't expected much of an answer, truth be told, so he didn't attempt to push the matter any further.

He remained quiet until the prince's arrival, keeping his thoughts of what may come to himself.

*He wondered what it could be, if he were Tzimice would he not just be dead right now. He wasn't sure how this worked. The young doctor went over possibilities in his head when he had little to know information. He knew by now the Tremere was hiding something. Though maybe there was still hope, or was the proverbial horseman of death coming. Why would the head boss come by just to kill though. It did not make sense in the least. Bosses who saw no worth didn't really look at the creature in supplication.*

*He just remained quiet and polite as he let his mind circle in speculation.*

Bryant Durant
High Presence
It did not take him long to get there at all truth be told. He was shown to the library and entered with confident strides. He was the type of man who could be felt if your back was turned, he drew the attention and one would think 'here is a commander'

He came to a stop, looked over the fledgling briefly then gave a nod to Dominic before turning to Body count and Lucas "So what do we have?" he said as he took a seat.

Body Count

He got up the moment the prince came into the room, and stepped aside so that he could sit. He turned his black eyes to the Tremere.




Lucas Greenson

He stood as well, it was only proper respect after all. Then once the Prince took a seat, so did he. His fingers once more stroked the skull, his eyes turning to the fledgling but also Dominic "What we have, is a Salubri of all things" And the word was said with as much venom as a tremere would have for the clan that made them important to the tower.

Dominic stood as the Prince entered as well, of course, returning the nod to Bryant. Once he and Lucas had sat he retook his own, taking a moment to straighten out his jacket as he got settled.

Lucas' response to the Prince's question, however, elicited a look of surprise that came far too quickly for him to be able to reign it in before it was noticed; he sat back in his chair, clearly taken aback, his own pale gaze sharply turning to Yang. As bad as the man being a Fiend would have been, a Fury was just as bad if not more so, what with their bloodline's reputation on top of their fervent penchant for hunting down those they blamed for their line's fall...

After taking a moment to compose himself he looked to the Prince, head bowed in respect. "You know of my service to the Camarilla, Your Grace. If I had had an inkling of what he was before this night he would have been so much ash on the wind, I swear it."

*Yang heard foosteps coming up the stairs. He knew his judgment would be soon, he went over and over in his head about confusionism teachings. Proper etiquette what to do before a ruler. As the prince entered he stood just as quickly as the rest of them.*

*This was going completely wrong at this point. He started to understand why Eastern and Western cultures clashed. He had tried to be nothing but polite in his culture. Now they were calling him a "what" It had no emotion, something expendable. And indeed by Dominic worse than a Fiend. He knew face was important at this point the most important aspect of this. And extending to him that he is indeed human and someone he could do business with. Though considering the cold tones it would take much work in short time to save his life. He indeed may not be able to do it. He was poised better than any human could be. He did not breath and he still held that air of calm and harmoniousness.*

*The gift he would give the prince was only one thing at that point. Objects had no meaning when his death was close. It was close to him his father gave it to him. But perhaps it would indeed bring more face to the situation. Reaching in his pocket at the moment when not asked would probably be the death of him right now. Etiquette demanded an introduction however by his culture. He gave a polite formal chinese bow as if to an emperor in his culture. The bow was at the shoulder.*

"Your Grace, I am Dr. Yang Yushen, doctor in the underworld in the International District."

*He kept standing at that point which was proper etiquette for his culture. He said nothing further and his hands were seen at all times. Maybe it may let him think of him as slightly more than just cattle. Here was hoping. *

Bryant Durant

The prattling of the fledgling didn't seem to phase him, he did not look at him beyond the curious look after it was announced what he was. Finally he lifted a hand and moved it " I respect its desire to be known and try not to show fear in the face of death, so while I know that Clan Tremere would want to take it captive and dissect it..Turn it into a roman candle and ash it as quickly as possible"

He got up and started for the door. "And before it steals any ones soul..then insure the assistant keeper is not tainted"

Body Count

Well with that the scourge got up and moved far away from what was about to happen. Sucks for Dominic if he didn't do the same. And near the door he was ready to exit, watched as the little girl Drew brought in a fire extinguisher.

And moved even further to the door

(One succs for Ros. Will likely book it next turn)



Lucas Greenson

Lucan smiled "As you will, Your Majesty" He said and two words, he focused his will.
Yang felt the air around him heat up and then his clothing burst into flames. It wasn't a configuration but it was almost a bone fire. His fire, his control he just waited to see if he needed to follow through.

Dominic shook his head quietly as Yang spoke, resisting the urge to look in the young man's direction. It wasn't his fault that some cruel soul had shaped him in this manner, but there were some sins of the parent that the child had to pay and unfortunately this was one of them.

He nodded at the Prince's words, moving towards the door in short order as the heat of the flames began to rise. The darkness within recoiled but for the moment he kept it in check, maintaining his composure as he readied to leave.

*Yang heard the verdict, He expected a gun to be pulled out and him shot. Nothing could have prepared him for the pain and fear he would experience. He knew the beast would be coming and in the split second that the Tremere had to conjure up his magic he had to focus his mind to bear pain standing so still he was glad he didn't have to breathe.*

"I did not steal any souls. I do not know how." *Figuring the Tremere may still be detecting lies.*

*The interesting thing is though the man was resistant to the usual Tremere's magic. It was a lesser form. He didn't seem resistant to it. He was burning rather well but he was in pain he could feel it probably to the Tremere's satisfaction. His eyes glowed as the beast tried to force him out. He didn't bring a gun, too many people here. He was dead.*

*The clothes were the first thing to burn off. And his flesh started to cinder his black hair ignited and embers crawled along his scalp first to go. His body didn't broil like human flesh. It was more like dead flesh burning and those still breathing could smell the putrid smell of a burning corpse that one is likely not to forget. The beast shown in his eyes. The man showed a monument of courage however. Though he was trying to run to the door he stopped himself mid movement gritting his teeth in pain. The more fleshy components were gone his skin was blackened by now but he still had some substance.*

*He let out the last of his breath at this point. The pain was quick and it took all his willpower to speak.*

"Ignorance is the night of the mind, A night without a moon or Star."

*It was at that point the flames were taking his voice his voice starts to crack like an old man.*

*It took a while but the man stood there like a mantle of courage and harmony though the flames were riddling his body. He went to his knees.. opening his mouth to cry out as the pain was taking it's toll but he remained stalwart. He could no longer speak. Finally the crispy fire took his core and he rolled forward crumbling to ash the flames licking the last bit of clothing and body as he fell to nothing but dust.*

*At the center of the ashes as the flames lapped up the rest plastic and metal melted. Keys to a car. And a gold cigar case that melted open the last spark of flames wngulfed the business cards. His name burning away in slow embers.*
