"But ofcourse! Tradition has to be tested again and again, and if an innovation should indeed prove more beneficial, it will take it's place. And yet, tradition hardly changes, because as I said, fundamentally, everything stays the same. For example, Socrates was complaining about children being disrespectful of their elders and the world going to hell because politicians are selfish bastards whereas they used to be noble, just as old people today do, too. Some people decide on a course of events that will affect the life of thousands, today just like two thousand years into the past. Back then, they were called nobles, today they are called presidents and CEOs. Appearances change. Forms change. The core of the matter, however, does not." He punctuated his speech with hand gestures, once again.

Thomas took his words into consideration. "Which might mean our perception is skewed is what you mean, I take it? Well, that may be true." He was a little surprised to find something like common ground with a Dragon. In his head, it was signed off as noteworthy, but not important as of now. "If it is, there is no way for us to find out though, is there?"
He was curious who would be called in first. He had a feeling it would be the Dragon. Letting someone wait is a pretty straight-forward way of letting newcomers know who exactly is in control. And a message like that was more impressive for those used to reading between the lines.

"True. I suppose it's a consolation prize for the giving up of the Mysteries of Morality." He settles back waiting as well for their host.

The door to the waiting room opened, the same servant who had led them to the room appeared again.

"Gentlemen please follow me."

They were led down the hallway to a room which would be in the center of the entire manor. It turned out to be a study, book shelves covering the walls, an old fashioned fireplace with an officer's sword hanging above it. The whole scene screamed British Gentry, the Lord (or Earl)'s study. Only thing missing was the dog on a rug.

The man watching them enter was older than either of them. It appeared that he had been embraced in his mid-50s but the haze of age had not hit. His eyes are dark brown and sharp. They evaluated the pair of Kindred entering the room without a sign of emotion.

The Seneshcal of New York motioned the pair to take a seat and waited until they did.

"Welcome to New York, would you please introduce yourselves."

"Good Evening, Most Honourable Earl Pelham. I am Mister Thomas Richter, Ventrue Commissioner, and formerly of Miami." Thomas first instinct was to genuflect, but instead he just bowed very low - obviously, a practised motion. He had been told to take a seat, so it would have been rude to stand up just to genuflect, then sit down again. Not to mention that it would make it look ridiculous and thus, an insult.

Pelham nodded at the introductions.

"Why New York?"

Garret waited then smiled as his turn came up. "New Orleans was a bit too stiff for my tastes, I needed to start some new projects, and perhaps offer my services elsewhere. New York or L.A., and to be honest I never liked California much."

There was little hint as to whether the First among Lords approved or disapproved of either answer.
