Tea With Bowser (Salem, Mirv, Lilah)

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.

Lilah made a coffee and moved to find a seat. Offering the group a smile though she said nothing. Her hands wrapped around the hands around the coffee cup. Enough cream and sugar in the cup to make it cool enough to hold on to.

"So do you like the bench in Washington Park?" It was a weird question from the Seer.

"Yes. She would have liked it." The Guardian nodded.

"Just not the person who commissioned it." Hanover grinned.

Blackstone did as well. "She always thought that you could be saved from the Dark Side."

The Seer took a sip from his cup of tea. "In that allegory we are the Empire not the Sith."

"So on the Sith."

"Is your side finally daring to involve themselves in the little dispute we are having with them?"

Blackstone frowned. "Those ones we got two years ago suddenly don't count? Taking out a Banisher Cabal plus a dozen Spirit allies doesn't sound like ignoring a problem. Besides if we put people near your foaming at the mouth War Pigs they might shoot at us too."

Hanover sighed. "Too true."

Mirv hung back, intent on staying incognito (he managed to fight back the urge to make a Star Wars quip about how Darth Vader was integral to overthrowing the Empire), and made mental notes to ask later.
'Who is that women they're talking about? What's their story? How long has this partnership been going on?'
Generally, his impression of Hanover was... well, not positive, but he could understand to a degree how a Guardian would be willing to extend some careful 'trust'. Despite his intense dislike, he had to respect the calm confidence. Still, to the sleuth Hanover was more of a dirty secret, and definitely dangerous. Mirv was worried about how much danger he could wreath due to sneaking into a position like this.
He also realized that knowing about this uncouth alliance was pretty trusting of Blackstone. Salem was obviously not just his type of Arrow.

Salem chuckled at the Star Wars reference, "The Empire is quite adequate, I think, but Sith and Empire are tightly intertwined. Unless you consider the new Disneyfied version." Salem scoffed at the word 'Disneyfied' and then looked across Hanover, "You look like you'd be rather comfortable in a Grand Moff uniform yourself. Regardless of the relationship of the Sith and the Empire, a more accurate in universe comparison for our mutual problem is perhaps the Yuuzhan Vong."

The Moros let that sit. He wasn't ready to ask questions yet, but he wanted to insert himself in the conversation at least a little. It was also the closest within allegory he could come to letting Hanover know Salem held him in some form of respect. The Arrow also made a show of keeping both hands on his drink, in view of both parties. Hopefully that would help show his peaceable intent.

Lilah was content to keep her mouth shut but her eyes and ears open as she looked over each person in the little gathering. She didn't drink yet, no, she just kept her hands wrapped around the cup in plain view and listened, watched. As Salem spoke she nodded at something and bit the inside of her cheek. Ice broken. Still no words came as she shifted back in the seat.

"They are getting all expanded universe on us." Blackstone grinned.

"I can't keep up on what is even officially canon anymore."

"Whatever makes Disney the most money."

Hanover chuckled and sipped at his tea. "Too true." He took another drink. "So you are hunting the forger?" It was a rhetorical question and he picked up something from the table in front of him and offered it to the three, mostly unknown to him, Mages.

It was a small leather case containing an NYPD uniformed officer's badge. It was perfect.

The sleuth picked the badge up and studied it with interest. Could have been an original, for all he could see. Was this a sign that the forger was hiding among the police force? Or just that he had connections there? Has he smuggled some of his people in? He fought back his tongue, still intent on not getting much attention, and gave it to the other two.
He rued the fact that he didn't know any Matter - with that he maybe could've tracked down where this badge had been or had been changed.

Salem eyed the badge, "Impressive work. No objection to a thorough review of the material, I trust."

Spellcasting without asking would have been rude, and could have provoked a hostile reaction. This way, Blackstone and Hanover had a little warning. No need to make anyone jumpy.

"Please."

Blackstone nodded as well.

Salem nodded and got to casting, focusing intently on the piece.

"One hundred percent real. It looks like it could have walked out of the precinct yesterday." Salem said with a frown. He'd figured this would be the case, given the initial information, but he'd been hoping. This meant the forger had a supplier. Chances were the supplier, however, didn't know he was supplying. Those political connections that had been mentioned were working overtime if all of the supplied IDs were real.

"It was taken from a dead Banisher, a particularly nasty individual whose MO was to go after families in order to draw out a Mage." Hanover frowned. "The Badge was never issued but also never reported stolen either."

Blackstone sighed. "Fuck."

"It is nice to find things we can agree on."

Things started to get REALLY interesting.
Mirv asked Blackstone: "That sigh sounds like you had a similar situation sometime?" as he reached for the stone.
He was sure he wasn't going to find anything, but it never hurt to look at what kind of connections lingered within a clue.
