Episode One, Session 6 Synopsis
Jane questioned Jesus, learning little. He asked her what was in it for him,
and stated “if I talk to you, her and the bitch, as well as Escobado, will
want me dead.” Jane suggested he might work for her employers, and he
scoffed at that and asked her who she worked for. Jane’s response to this
was ambigious. She then had him locked up and went to meet up with the
Terri and Jane arrived as the rest of the group was discussing their plan to
ambush Risa Hirano
outside the construction site at Old Yankee Stadium
as she is returning from her rendezvous at “Workout at Tiffany’s”. Terri sensed Summer on the others, and V.S., Andromeda, and Charles saw a small pink panther prowling on David’s shoulder as he denied owing Lady Ariel anything.Terri tried to create a glamour for all to see the panther, but it was blocked, at which point David’s shoulder got wet.
Jane pointed out that they might want to institute some magical security, and Charles raised a ward to prevent magical observance. Doing so cause the group to hear a loud child-like scream and Charles, Andromeda, and V.S. saw the ghost of a 6yr old girl, in a Catholic School Girl’s uniform, fade away quickly.
As the group was considering this, Dolorous came upstairs and knocked on V.S’s door, asking him to come downstairs. He came downstairs and saw the most beautiful woman he had ever seen in his life. She was reading a scroll he had been authenticating for the Museum of Natural History. The woman asked if she could come in, and V.S. said yes. She then went upstairs, poured some tea, sat down, and with a smile, told everyone to call her Helen. The group then spoke with “Helen” (knowing she was Aphrodite). She then told them that Zeus had chosen them as his champions in dealing with this. She also revealed that Risa got her power from the Summer Court as part of a bargain with the Summer Lady. She then departed, after blowing V.S. a kiss and giving him her blessing. V.S. escorted her out, and found the three scrolls translated for him. He and Andromeda, and Charles, recognized them as written by Alexander the Great. V.S. found a tale inside them that described someone exactly like Risa in appearance, abilities, and mother.
The group then discussed the ghost, learning through some searching that the girl was named Olivia Martinez, was the daughter of Saundra and Jesus, was conceived during Saundra’s first year in Omerta, was born in Jersey City, was 6yrs old when she died, and that her body was discovered in a dumpster on the construction site for the Revel Casino and Hotel in Atlantic City. The group discovered from the ghost that Saundra had the ghost summoned by a young woman, an ectomancer Charles recognized as Angie Ramirez, of Redeemer Lutheran Church. She said that she was summoned to see her mommy, who asked her to look in on Terri. The group verified the ghost knew nothing about their plans for Risa.
The group then continued to debate their plan for ambushing Risa. Terri suggested perhaps seeing if Lucciano would be interested in them eliminating Risa at the Exercise Club. Jane and Charles proposed listening in on Risa’s next session, through either tech or magical means. V.S. said that David could get inside, that he robbed the Museum of Natural History. David said he was delusional. The group contemplated various means of spying on Risa’s next rendezvous.
After all this, Charles asked Jane what information she got out of Jesus. Jane’s response was that Jesus was now in a deep dark hole. Inquiries in to where he was got Jane to admit to “we have facilities to contain kind such as his.” Charles then asked Jane who she worked for, and Jane responded that “not all humanity is clueless, and not all humanity has decided to just sit back and watch. There is a certain element of the FBI that has noticed what is going on and taken measures.”
V.S. then returned to the debate of capture vs death of Risa. Andromeda harped on “why Risa would answer any questions? What would be her motivation to give us information?” Terri pointed out that there are means of getting Risa to stick to an agreement. A long, and vehement, discussion ensued, mostly between Terri and V.S. against Andromeda. Charles hinted he too would not like to see Risa released. Jane then stated that even though there may or may not be a deep dark hole for Risa, shesuggested that perhaps after she answers their questions, they can eliminate her.
