Making it scarcely in time, Thomas arrived at the address given to him. He approached the main entrance, taking the sight of the area into him. He kept a lookout for any Staff that might be outside before knocking at the door.

It was a four story house, a ritzy upscale residence that was large for Manhattan and located in one of the richest area codes in the world.

Thomas knocked and the door was opened by two individuals who looked like central casting had sent them over to portray bodyguards. Black suits, short hair, eyes that scanned the street and looked for trouble,

"Name?"

The area was certainly awe-inducing. The Bodyguards, not so much. Then again, do not judge a book by its Cover.
"Mister Thomas Richter."

"Allow him in." The voice, the one from the phone, came from behind the pair. It belonged to a man who could be late 20s or early 30s, just above six feet tall and a shade off being considered handsome. He was wearing a tasteful black suit with subtle silver stripes and indigo trim on his tie. He waited for the door to close again.

"I am Mister Simon Blair, we spoke on the phone." He held out his hand.

Thomas was glad he was not the only one adhering to Clan colors. He wondered if this was the Judex. However, even if that was the case, addressing him any differently than he introduced himself would have been rude. He shook the hand firmly, but taking care not to be clumsy by gripping too strongly. "Ah, yes! It is a pleasure to meet you, Mister Blair! Thank you for your hospitality."

Blair motioned for Thomas to follow him inside.

The decor of the house was subtle but Thomas knew that it cost. A lot.

"The Judex is currently engaged in sparing session with Baroness Conti, I hope you do not mind waiting a few minutes for them to finish."

The subtlety actually impressed Thomas more than any grandeur would have. It was a sign of power - for those that were able to identify it. It proved a taste for style that he very much identified with.
"Oh, of course not." He smiled confidently, and waited to be told where to wait.

"Excellent." Blair led Thomas to a meeting room with six chairs all surrounding a small table and gestured for the new arrival to take a seat.

Thomas took a seat and said "Thank you!" They were very comfortable. He felt like engaging in some small talk would be appropriate.
"I have to say, this is a wonderful neighbourhood! I think I saw a few rather prominent people on my way here. Oh, I hope I do not cause any kind of problem to you or the Judex with my sudden appearance, Mister Blair."

Blair shrugged.

"No issue at all."

He flashed a smile. "That is good to know."
Watching the other Kindred, he added "Have you been living for a long time in New York, Mister Blair?"

"Oh, Europe! How exotic! That is guaranteed to have been a very fascinating, albeit dangerous time. However, it must have come as a shock, leave New York in a prosperous state and coming back to it in shambles." Thomas gestured regularly to underline his meaning.

"The situation in the Domain could have been far worse, New York was lucky that a collection of Kindred were able to put aside Covenant differences and create a bulwark against treason and criminal incompetence on the part of the former Prince."

Thomas spread his hands in an agreeing gesture. His tone changed from agreeing to sympathetic to thoughtful.
"Which is indeed a great achievement. And, if everything plays out correctly, New York Kindred Society will stand more strongly than ever before. Nonetheless, it must have been jading to be dealt a blow like this. I only know the bare bones of the story, and I am aware that, usually, the devil's in the details, but from what I heard, New York is contested and has a lot to prove at the moment." He watched Mister Blair closely.
