Noctum made sure she was early for Breakfast to meet the group. She had already ordered, Blueberry pancakes and a large latte.

I might as well get started whilst I wait. she thought to herself as she stirred her coffee and ran through her prep in her head. Checking she had everything she needed. She had searched Mysterium records, updated the map on her phone to show where the lay line should be as well as previous records in case she needed them on the go. She had also searched news articles to see if there was anything she could spot.

Nergal was the first to arrive, about ten minutes before time set for the meeting.

The Guardian greeted Noctum with a simple nod and sat down. His order was simple - black coffee, brown toast and three eggs scrambled. No bacon. No home fries.

Once he had his first sip of coffee he looked across the table at the Obrimos.

The trio of Arrow arrived about two minutes after Nergal. Aurora was first, followed by Mitchell and Dutch.

They took seats at the table and the waitress came over for orders. Mitchell went with egg white omelet, Dutch went for egg whites, toast and turkey bacon and Aurora went for waffles with fruit and bacon. All three had coffee.

"Miss anything?"

"Nope, you arrived right on time." she concentrated for a moment, a brief flash of magic altered the flow of sound around their booth to minimise it carrying to the other diners.

"I have done as much research as I could with the time I had available. Forgive me if any of you already know this stuff. We have a lot of Red and Yellow areas. The Bronx traditionally sees the more violent Seer Pylons. Generally in the South Bronx, where we are going. The pylon we potentially may come into contact with are believed to be Praetorian. We also have a hostile spirit realm in Pelham Gardens and Morris Park. Negative resonance, hostile foreign supernatural and a potential for the area to attract banishers or abyssal entities. Long term clean up is needed but the seers block us from doing anything. "

"Worse of all, we have corrupt politicians and police in the area."

Prometheus walked in just as Noctum was beginning, carrying a gym bag and ordering bacon and eggs.

Everyone listened to Noctum as she spoke, nodding to show that they were listening.

Aurora sipped on her coffee as Noctum spoke and waited until she finished.

"Yeah Blueline warned us about the Seer Pylons. I think that we should start in the south and then work out from there so they can't prepare for us in their own territory. We get in, we do the job and get out before they can react - then if they want to deal with us afterwards it will be on neutral ground where all of us are potentially dealing with Red or Yellow sector problems instead on their turf."

"A solid plan. Hopefully the don't even realise we are there." She was hoping for that no problems type of mission. The harsh reality was she was going to be disappointed.

"So I'm an Adept of Prime and Noctum's at least one as well. Anyone else?"

There were various head shakes around the table.

"Apprentice." Came the reply from Mitchell.

"Apprentice." Prometheus.

"Initiate." Dutch.

"Apprentice." Nergal.

Aurora nodded. "Okay then - Noctum is Asset One and I'm Asset Two. We'll take care of the examinations and mapping. We can work in two mutually supporting teams to cover ground quicker and if either picks up something weird we call the other over to give an unbiased second look for confirmation purposes. Mitchell and Negal are with Noctum as part of Team One, Dutch and Prometheus are with me on Team Two. Dutch is primary driver of the seven person van we have, Nergal will be secondary." The young Arrow pulled out several pieces of paper and passed them around. "The numbers are probably redundant but top is our Arrow backup if we need it and the bottom is Mysterium HQ for map updates. Mitchell and Prometheus will be handling main comms for each team."

People nodded. Even Prometheus and Nergal, the latter giving the young female Arrow the hint of a smile with something hinting at both amusement and respect.

"Any comments, questions or suggestions while we still have time to talk over breakfast?"

"Master of Prime...." Noctum tried to add without being overall dodgy. She certainly didn't want to act arrogant or brag about it. It was just something that might be useful to know in the current mission. She looked at Mitchell and Nergal in particular "If shit hits the fan I am not much of a fighter, however I can counter spell and strip effects like shields."

Aurora nodded - impressed by Noctum's Mastery.

"That's why Nergal and Mitchell are with you. Both are packing firearms for range and if anyone gets close to you Mitchell will break them into pieces and Nergal will cut them into the same."

They made small talk over breakfast about sports and city news. Prometheus loved the Yankees, Knicks and the Jets. Dutch liked the Giants, Knicks and the Yankees. Mitchell was apparently a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals - having grown up in Missouri and only liked College Basketball - Go University of Missouri Tigers. Nergal didn't follow American Football (too violent) but did like hockey - he was a Rangers fan. Aurora liked the Carolina Panthers and the Atlanta Braves - she was also starting to enjoy hockey a bit more too.

"Alright bathroom breaks." The Arrow stood up after paying her check and went quickly to the ladies room - they might not have time for a few hours.

After that she headed out to the van. It was a mini-van, the staple of Soccer Moms everywhere, and she went for one of the bucket seats in the middle - the one behind the driver.

"Team A is passenger side, Team B is driver's side." There were two doors - on each side - to the back and Prometheus and Mitchell were already in the far back.

"Mind if I take shotgun? Wouldn't be my first time doing it in a potential war zone." It was Nergal speaking to Noctum.

Noctum smiled "Be my guest." Noctum climbed into the back of the van, half expecting to see a bag of soccer balls and kids soccer kits.
