Citlali took in the information with a neutral expression. She had known the wizarding world here was secretive but nothing like how her people were. They had not remained completely closed off from the outsiders despite what they attempted to say. They kept contact in some aspects; a back and forth between higher ups checking on each others’ statuses in order in ensure the balance. But if the government had been overthrown and no contact reestablished then that balance was completely gone. Perhaps that was the cause of the fracture in the spirit realm as well? It was a start of a clue at least, along with the rest of the pieces. Pieces to a puzzle Citlali did not even have a reference picture for. There was a lot going on but all of it was so tied to the physical world’s balance. Why weren’t the Garou dealing with that? Perhaps their oversight was where the spirit realm had begun to crack?
She let out a small purr in thought, ”So if I am understanding you correctly,” she began, relaxing even more into the plush chair, ”You are a werewolf hunter who just happens to have a run in with one of my own. Your mate managed to survive that somehow along with your own encounter with this Tabora’s questionable use of potions. I can only guess that the targets surviving is because of the girl’s inexperience. So not only is there an unknown Nagual in the area which would mean she was specifically dispatched here but you also have an unknown contact that knows enough about us that you can identify us on sight now? Now that is something that never happens.”
“Then there is an underground city that you were kidnapped to by a wolf and his witch girlfriend and subsequently escaped from. Both of whom have not come after you again since your escape I am assuming as you are not currently imprisoned. Or perhaps they released you. But then why would they do that?” she continued with an amused tone, “This city somehow hosts all sorts of creatures that otherwise do not get along together, much less live underground with each other. And as far as you know as a… what is the world here? Muggle? The wizarding world no longer contacts your own due to a power imbalance created by a government being overthrown but you have no clue despite your vast insight into other things who or what is running the show now. So in response a group, as you just implied, of Muggles has formed up to do what exactly? Collect information and do what with it? Not to mention how a group of you even had enough exposure to the magical world to start that you knew something was wrong when this all began.”
Citlali watched his expression thoughtfully then continued before he could bother to interrupt her, ”Now my real question for you is why are you not dead? Hunting werewolves alone should have put a black mark on you, knowing of my people would be twice over, but all this information? There is no way you should be able to be sitting here telling me things. So it calls to question what is keeping you safe? Any non-magical person knowing all this information and yet somehow you have escaped every dangerous situation you found yourself in? Either they are sending in true amateurs because you are human, they do not care that you know about these things which is a complete different concern, or something else entirely is going on that is keeping you and your group safe enough from backlash. So which is it? You have given me quite a bit of information but just enough information with holes in it to make me not want to trust you. Even though I know you are telling the truth. So would you like to fill in those holes or continue to try and dodge around?”
Another toothy smile split her face as she watched him, letting her gaze fade into that same glassy look as she watched his spirit. Po was still hovering, still didn’t think this man was a bad person. Just deceptive and if Citlali was going to place trust in his information, and even potentially share her own to form this alliance, then she would have to test the boundaries. If he lied to her now when he hadn’t all night, well, he would be in for quite a shock.
”You could start by telling me who you work for at this top secret job that has given you so much access to the magical world.”
