The reaction to the news about the Order being back was a bit of a surprise though. Was the assembled bunch really that naive? The tracker just barely resisted the urge to roll his eyes at the first woman to speak up. Ever since the Death Eaters had taken over there had been two prominent groups vying to take them down: SAVIOR and the Order of the Phoenix. SAVIOR, thanks to some fine work by a few in the Guard that weren't complete idiots, had managed to get a man inside that particular organization and take it down from the inside. Most of its members were either dead or rotting in Azkaban with exception of a couple that had managed to secure pardons for information and the like.
Teague locked gazes with the woman who spoke with an accent he couldn't quite place, a slightly dangerous glint in his eye. Did she think he hadn't done his homework?
"Yeah lass I'm damned sure it was the Order. During the attack members of the guard recognized more than a few faces, most notably Casey Winslow, known Order member, and recently released from Azkaban," Teague took a small pause and mentally reminded himself to personally kill whoever it was that had signed her release papers. "Kara Viridian. Also known daughter of former Minister Darque and if my sources are correct, which I'm pretty sure they are, Order leader. As to your question about other groups, SAVIOR has been taken down from the inside by a special unit of the Guard, and the only other group that I've had on my radar has merged or allied with the Order."
The Lord cast his eyes across the room as if daring anyone to call him out on that. Julian was here, as was Delilah so he had that ace if he needed it, though he'd rather not pull that card so early in the game if it could be helped. A flicker of movement from behind had him holding up a hand to indicate to Christophe he was to hold his position. Teague was still getting used to the idea of having a, for all intents and purposes, beast at his beck and call. It was clear Reynolds had done his work well since this small push back seemed to trigger the man. Once he was certain Christophe was going to stay put, the Lord turned his attention to the woman who had the quill and seemed to be taking notes.
"Figured that would 'ave been a bit obvious. We're going to take the fight to their home turf. Odds are good that they settled into a complacent mode since we've done nothing but beef up security in the alleys and get some specific articles out in the papers. The last thing they're going to expect is for us to take the initiative and attack directly."
