#2695
To be woken up at the ungodly hour of sometime after 4am was just plain cruel. Never mind the message said patronus had delivered had been anything but positive and was reason enough in itself to rouse the Death Eater from his dreamless sleep. Julian was supposed to meet Del in a field of all places with some rabid Garou... Fantastic. While she hadn't given him any information on why they were meeting, the fact that they were and that the summons was urgent was enough and his mind was racing down all possible reasons as he quickly got dressed. Had Hunt made a move? Was it the muggles?

Julian took a moment to prepare a few quick runes in addition to the ones he always wore (bracelets/wrist bands/necklaces) grabbed a cloak and quickly hopped out the window. He was certain most of the residents of the safe house knew he was always coming and going but fact of the matter was he was so used to sneaking out it was just second nature. It also had the perk of not having to deal with anyone brave enough to ask questions. That and sneaking off at 4 in the morning wasn't bound to raise suspicion.

Once outside the boundaries of the safe house, Jules tapped two runes on his wrist bands and the air in front of him shimmered. While he wasn't confident enough in his wand work to risk an apperation, the location Delilah had told him about was well known to anyone who'd ever traveled through Scotland. A deep breath to calm his mind enough to picture the area he wanted to go to, and Jules stepped though the shimmering air into a field just outside of a heavily forested area. It happened in a blink, as if he had walked through nothing more than an open door. Delilah would be around somewhere and hopefully he hadn't missed the mark with his modified apperation. Jules drew his wand as a precaution just in case he needed to stab anyone or any furry creatures with it and began the search for his fellow Death Eater.
#2696
The Spiral sat in the tall grass that inhabited an area around the this forest, the cool breeze bring various scents and sounds to an ever aware predator. Why the hell he had agreed to meet that Death Eater woman he had no idea. Perhaps it was the quip about not eating her fellow companion that did it. The last time he had spoken with her it had cost him and eye and almost his life and that wasn't something the human nor the wolf would easily forget. Perhaps it was some weird sense of pack loyalty that had Soren not returned Delilah's letter with a giant "screw you" and instead had given her directions to find their real home. Or maybe it was because even though his wolf wanted to rip her throat out he respected her. She hadn't turned him in at Hogwarts and she'd gone out of her way to make sure he hadn't died due to silver poisoning... In the long run the reason didn't matter, only that she was coming for a visit with another Death Eater and for whatever reason wanted the pack there... which was odd in itself. She had to know being here and by lettering her into their home, it would be that Alpha she'd be dealing with.

Soren cocked his head to the side as the crunch of grass made itself known. A few moments was all the Garou needed to pin point two sets of footsteps in differing directions. Right on time it seemed. A slightly sinister looking grin crept onto his face as he turned to his own companion and whispered low enough so that only she could hear. "Want to have a bit of fun?" He knew she'd understand what he meant. Humans were such skittish creatures after all and sometimes it was just fun to scare them. It wouldn't even take much. With the way the grass was crunching and the dirt moving it was like a heard of something was rampaging through the field, so odds were good both Death Eaters weren't far. Plus it would be a great way to exercise his tracking and stalking skills. Let them think they could wander right in... It was a good thing that he'd mentioned the visitors to the scouts on the nightshift. LAst thing he wanted to do was wake Corc at this hour if it wasn't necessary. Soren waited for Aishe to give him some sort of signal that she would follow or circle around before heading out toward his intended targets, moving through the shadows as if he was part of them.
#2701
The sun sank into the soil and encouraged the grass to grow. Aishe felt that it likewise sank into her being and encouraged her soul to flourish. Like the grass and forest around her, the internal world of her mind and heart had taken in a seasonal shift and a new pattern of growth. Being around the Black Spirals had caused a more savage edge to flourish in her being. Had she, before meeting Soren, not ever really experienced rage? Yet now it was a familiar friend to her. The burning ache in her bones was like a warm campfire in a cold night. It had become a vital part of her being.

A crunch of grass and whisper of fabric against stems caught her attention. Someone was coming. Blundering, more like, but the intent was the same. Aishe slowly opened her eyes and grinned at Soren's suggestion. He didn't need to expand on his idea for the woman to slowly stand and begin stalking the human. As any pairing hunted, she circled opposite of Soren so that their prey would be caught crosswise between them. This would be good fun, especially if it was that Delilah witch.
#2705
It didn't take him more than a handful of minutes to located what he had assumed was the other Death Eater that was meant to meet up with them. Julian by the looks of the figures stature. It was easy enough for the Garou to striking distance and mask his own footfalls with all the noise the other man was making, never mind the glowing beacon that was his wand that was litteraly screaming out "Come eat me," to any of the predators that called the Loch their home. Soren shook his head. Idiots the lot of them.

One step, two step, and sprint. Soren slinked up behind the man and quick as a flash had on clawed hand gripping the mans wand arm and the other wrapping around his mouth so the scream (judging by the way the man nearly jumped out of his skin when grabbed) was nothing more than a bunch of muffled sound. Before Julian could even begin to struggled, Soren quickly kicked out his knee, forcing the Death Eater to drop to one knee and into a position that was much easier to control. Last thing he needed was to get hit by a spell or some such nonsense.

"You're noisy Winslow, and if you want to make it through the night you need to do better." The words were soft spoken but they carried a sense of authority. It took a few minutes for the words to sink in but eventually Soren felt Winslow relax and once the Spiral was sure there would be no retaliation he let the man go.

"Shepard? Bloody hell was that necessary? Delilah told you I was coming didn't she?" The question was spat out and it was clear the man was irate but he complied and killed the light coming from his wand as soon as he was standing again.

"Yeah it was. You're playing a dangerous game coming here and doubly lucky for you I told the scouts to let you pass or you would have been picked off the moment you apperated in." He gave Winlsow a moment to let that tid-bit sink in before adding with a devious smirk, "Besides, you're going the wrong way. Come on, if we're quick you'll get to see a bit of a show. Aishe is on Chase's tail."

The Spiral didn't waste any more time on the man, it would be up to him if he chose to follow or not, and set of at a fairly brisk face through the grass and into the tree line. Eventually they stopped at the edge of a clearing and crouched down along the tree line, signaling Julian should do the same. The pair didn't have to wait long before the other Death Eater made her appearance... and a stupid one at that. A flash of fear washed over Soren before he was able to push it away. What the hell made her think walking into a Garou den at this hour with the brightest light she could muster was a good idea? That was just asking to wake the pack.... and hell, if Delilah had though he was temperamental wait until she met a tired and sleepy Alpha.

With that though firmly in mind he told himself he'd give Aishe a few minutes to take out her target, and if she hadn't moved by then he would. He didn't want to wake the pack until he knew it was worth it for obvious reasons.
#2706
(ooc I can edit if this is not okay)

Stalking through a forest may as well have been a picnic for Aishe. The scent of spring was fresh and vibrant. Soon, the forest would be alive and full of the sounds of the plentiful seasons. The early light filtered through the trees. It alone was enough for anyone used to living outside. The pastoral tranquility was marred by a spotlight, however. The beacon was an obviously man-made intrusion into the otherwise natural scene. It could mean only one thing: One of the humans that Soren was expecting. Aishe increased her pace without compromising her stealth.

Like her Owl patron, Aishe moved silently and swiftly to her prey. Ahh, the Chase woman...this would be a good lesson to her about her place in the natural order...

Aishe readied her twin daggers and advanced quickly to intercept the woman. There was a slight hint of malice in her eyes as she stepped out from behind a tree and wrapped an arm around Delilah's neck, lightly touching a blade to the woman's throat and another to her ribs. The Garou whispered into the witch's ear [b]"Dead, if Soren didn't wish otherwise...don't forget it."

A grin stole across Aishe's face as she spotted Soren and the other human watching. She shoved Delilah away and sheathed her daggers, brushing past the woman as if she didn't matter. She didn't...at least not to the Silent Strider. Only the fact that Soren considered her pack had stayed the blades Aishe carried with her. If and when Soren decided to stop playing with humans, Aishe would stop playing as well, with deadly consequences.
#3838
What originally had been sly grin quickly turned into one of horror when he saw the wand and the green light it was emitting. The only times he had ever saw a wand do that its target has ended up dead. The horror was quickly replaced with white hot rage and a fairly savage snarl thinking that Delilah had just taken the life of someone he cared deeply for. If Del had struck a mortal blow Soren decided he'd break Winslow's neck and then proceed to rip out Delilah's spine. But what was this? Aishe was still alive? His rage intensified once he realized it had been faked. Did she seriously have a death wish? Soren stalked toward Delilah with a purpose and a barely controlled rage and swatted at her wand arm hard even as Winslow ran after in what was a presumed attempt to stop the Garou. A red eyed glare had the man stopping in his tracks and that was all that was needed for Soren to turn his full attention to the woman.

"Put that away and shut up before you get us all killed!" He barked it out in a harshly snarled whisper. "How stupid are you?! You wake the pack and the Alpha and you're both dead. I may owe you a favor but I can't protect you here!"

Soren already knew he was talking a huge risk by allowing the Death Eaters into their den without getting the Alpha's permission. Once he was certain Delilah was going to comply he stalked off toward a smaller sheltered area away from the main cabin. They could discuss whatever the hell it was outside until he was certain whatever it was warranted any further attention.
#3996
The gypsy girl bared her teeth in a grin at her adversary. The challenge was clear and Aishe felt herself the winner of the small tussle. After all, true bravery was being willing to die for the betterment of the pack and Aishe knew that Soren'a life would be better in all ways when he stopped being pack with this woman. She believed it strongly enough to die for, so the show of sparks and light held no meaning for her.

Being in Spiral territory, Aishe kept her daggers out in a show of not-being-prey. That was the most important thing to remember when dealing with Spirals. They valued courage just as much as they craved the kill. If you could be interesting enough to them to not kill, your first step was accomplished. Granted, Soren was interested in these humans for his own reasons and that gave them value to the pack, so the Strider couldn't outright defy him by driving them off or getting the alpha to hate them. She didn't have to like the pair, though.
#4242
He listened attentively, thankful that Delilah got on with things without the normal preamble. Whatever Soren had been thinking this was about, Teague being alive and apparently well enough to make contact was not it. The Spiral had known the man had been looking for someone or something... the garou had been recruited on a few occasions to track down a few people and mark locations... pretty much run of the mill stuff. It also hadn't been hard to figure out the man had been missing for the better part of the month. Soren had "saw" him on occasion from a distance but something had always seemed off. And if there was one thing he had learned early as a pup was that eyes alone couldn't be trusted. He'd never pushed the issue or brought it up... he'd had other things to worry about such as getting back into fighting condition.

Winslow it seemed hadn't been expecting the news either by the look on his face though he chose to remain silent for the time being. Soren knew Teague had asked Winlsow to help on some missions but again it hadn't been much and the tracker had always been careful never to give them more information than they would need to finish their tasks. He cast a glance at the man on the off chance he knew what this Syndicate was but his glance was only returned with a shrug.

Soren continued to mull over what was being said though the mention of Sullivan. His head snapped up to meet Delilah's gaze. "You sure the name is Sullivan? Like Jacob Sullivan?" He struggled to fight back a snarl. He'd kill Cedric the next time they met. Turning to Aishe he asked quietly enough so that their human companions wouldn't hear unless they were paying attention, "The Nos we met that one night... that little pipsqueak said that was the guy both them and Ced worked for wasn't it?"

While Soren was busy chatting with Aishe, Julian turned to Del. "Well that certainly explains some things doesn't it. How in the bloody hell could Trevor have missed that? Better question: You sure this is a letter we can trust? The man's been MIA for the better part of a month... it wouldn't be out of the question for someone to fake something to draw us out..."

Aishe listened with grim attentiveness to the information that Delilah had. Perhaps humans could be useful as information gatherers. Certainly, Delilah and this other human had information aplenty, but what did that have to do with the Garou?

Like her counterpart, Aishe perked at the name of Sullivan. There was a human with his hand in quite a few pies...he had a leash on the Nosferstu, a muzzle on the half-blood, and a cattle prod on the government. In a way, Aishe had to admire this foe of Delilah's. He was successful and dangerous for a human. Maybe even dangerous to the Nation. She turned to Soren just as he turned to her. She waited for him to speak first, then replied just as softly.

"It is indeed the one and the same. He is likewise the adopted father of that Spiral-raised human Sam Sullivan, is he not? Could that compromise the pack?"

It was unlikely. The pack held themselves stable whatever the cost, usually extracted from their foes. Sam was not going to be used as a pawn, she hoped, but the option was there...
