The mists were still thick and the mirrors were still covering the walls. She could see Dr Kapel Christian in the mirror, distorted by places where the mirrors were joined together. Or maybe those were cracks. Were they cracks?
She should have been a bit more cautious when she was looking into the facial recognition software. She'd left tracks and there was a bit of disapproval coming down her way. Loose cannons weren't to be tolerated and she should stick to doing only the investigations that she was asked to do.
Falling in line?
So, Frederic didn't expect us to solve his scenario in a single day. I get the idea that he didn't expect anybody to have finished the whole deal in a single day, but certainly not us. I can sort of get that. I mean, if anybody is going to do it one day it'd likely be the people that were supposed to destroy the piano.
I mean, the defense team wouldn't be going after us to remove us from the occasion, that'd leave the piano unguarded. And I get the feeling most thieves don't go for the bliztkrieg random nonsense strategy.
That's really sort of what we did, you know. Just random stuff and taking advantage of things that sort of blew up in the faces of our colleagues.
We had arrived at the police office within a day of the murder of Xahndyg Yellow-Coat, a court clerk, so Inspector Craftbrass took us to the crime scene at the court offices. Wyndelly began the process of investigating the flows of magic at the site, looking for signs of this Haberdashing's tricks. Kelmar started reading through a journal of some sort at the same time and I went out to the bullpen to lean back and skirt over the minds of our victim's coworkers.
It produced an interesting bit of information. The other clerks were wondering who would be promoted to the now vacant spot. This was pertinent on its own, but the other response made things more intriguing. They weren't sure that promotion to Yellow-Coat's position was something anybody would want. This recent murder victim was someone attached to a prosecutor who worked a lot of political cases. The sort of person who would be prone to stumble onto dangerous information whether they know it or not.

"Well, I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't this," Hilde said as she scanned about the city they had entered through the gate.
Buildings scaled high around them on every side while the spaces between were cluttered by a variety of colorful stalls, booths, boutique shops, and any of a number of such businesses. People milled about on one errand or another and the entire place was filled with the rampant sound of strange music and raucous chatter.
"All citizens keep in mind the upcoming Idol Competition. Potential competitors, your last chance of signing up as coming up shortly, you'd better get on it."

To be perfectly fair, I was on the vigilante side of things for a bit. That's how I got into this whole adventurer, cult-breaker deal in the first place. As a young changeling from a family that hadn't been human for generations, I grew up exposed to the occult and the supernatural quite often. Back home you had the dangers of the occasional fanatic or criminal organizations. The outsiders weren't so much of an issue, I mean, they'd been around and there were the occasional aberrations. That's where things like dopplegangers came from, after all, and I eventuallly come from dopplegangers, but the first time I stumbled on a cult to them I decided to go the whole superhero deal.
It went predictably, horribly wrong. We eventually cleaned the mess up, but our attempts to fix things at the start made everything so much worse and there was so much more collateral damage than there needed to be. After the fact, Department 7 cornered us and we got the offer to stand down or join up. I joined up, and then a year later, I was Lost and who knows how many years later I was playing Sentinels of the Multiverse with a demigod and a tiger-man. The Wraith, Expatriette, and Chrono-Ranger versus Miss Information in Rook City.
