Tremere Tracking

The streets of Manhattan, constantly in the shadow of the towers in more ways than one. Here is where all Mage scenes and glimpses go.

Blackstone raised an eyebrow at Apollo's metaphor. "Sure." He got into the car with Dragonfly and Billy Martin.

Firinn and Ronin were already in the car, the Arrow taking the backseat and dropping her bag in the empty seat behind the driver. Apollo pulled out of the lot and headed in the direction of the first odd death, the afternoon of a late summer New Jersey day turning hot and making at least one member of the group happy that the car possessed A/C.

The town of Holmeson was just off the I-195 and stood as a monument to modern America. A collection of outlet stores beckoned travelers off the highway and if one went south off the highway in less than ten minutes they would hit two Six Flags parks and a large wildlife management area. However Apollo turned north and once beyond the outlet stores a different picture of America, one lacking the glitz and glamour of Six Flags. It was small town America, a mom and pop pharmacy still functioning, and only about a third of the restaurants and stores were chain places.

The Mastigos in the passenger seat sighed. "No wonder the death was so easily accepted as an overdose, it allows the community to dismiss it as a tragedy fit only to be trotted out as example of why drugs are bad." Her features turned to a frown. "She was found on a foreclosed farm just outside of town, I suggest that we start there and work backwards."

Apollo nodded. "They obviously have chosen their victims carefully."

"That is an assumption but a safe one. We need to learn a bit more about the victims to be completely sure of why they were the picked out."

Ronin looked out a window in the backseat. "What would be the ideal Tremere victim? Sleeper victim."

"A healthy drifter, someone with little to no family and no ties to a community or the system. Maybe enough connection to allow authorities to identify a body but lacking ties that would cause an investigation, someone who has for all intents and purposes already dropped out of existence according to society."

"So why kill someone from the local community?"

"Sometimes locating the perfect victim is difficult. The Tremere would be forced to create a victim and every layer they were forced to add to the narrative required to construct that perfect victim would be a potential giveaway."

"So since there are records for the victims there should be something to find."

"There should be something to dig up."

Apollo focused on the road, occasionally checking his mirrors like any good driver. Not just for other cars but for potential danger also. "Knowing the criteria can also help lead us to potential next targets."

"Agreed. If there is a Tremere in New Jersey they need to be dealt with as quickly as possible."

"We really have two potential starting points. One would be the local police station to look at the case file, the death was ruled a suicide but as it was also an unattended death there would still have been a basic investigation. The other point would be woman's apartment, which is currently unoccupied." The Mastigos glanced out the window. "I would suggest the police station, I can use my academic standing to get a look at the records for a research study on suicide."

The sheriff's station was on the town's main street, across the street from a chain bar and grill and a chain pharmacy. There were several parking spots with meters in front of the entrance, the majority of which were empty at the moment.

After Apollo pulled in and stopped the vehicle Firinn got out and put some change from her pocket into the meter.

"Would either of you care to come along?"

Ronin shook her head. "I'll stay with the car and see if anyone gives you a second look."

The Mastigos nodded and entered the station.

She returned just under ten minutes later.

"Half the report points to overdose, half the report points to suicide and the whole thing is an example of evidence being tailored to fit a predetermined conclusion." Firinn shook her head. "Planned overdose was the official cause of death. It could fit with Soul Loss, I encountered several cases of individuals without a soul using drugs to 'feel' something during my research. A number of those cases resulted in overdoses."

"So what's your first impression?"

"No confirmation towards either conclusion but the death does fit the Tremere pattern. We should examine her apartment with Time."

Ronin, their resident Time person, nodded in agreement.
