As Carinus walks away, Kiril's hyperactive senses pick up a sickening squelching sound coming from the wagon carrying Lucien.

"Thats better." He smiles. *squelch squelch. "Pfft, not even a comfortable chair. "Oh well." He says as he makes himself normal again.

He will then check put his body, mainly if something else changed apart from the obvious veins. And his eyes.

Kiril heads for the wagon.  What horrifying-yet-ultimately-pointless thing has the idiot done now? 

He summons dark steel tentacles as he goes.   Kiril was given a solemn request to keep the fleshcrafter securely bound until his sire arrived-- and while he wouldn't put it past that moron to have forgotten he was the one who requested confinement, the far more unsettling conclusion is that Lucien is no longer in control of his actions.

Four tendrils come to life from within Kiril, anchored firmly to his body.

---

Lucien notes nothing off about himself other than the already stated things - unless feeling more amazing than he has in decades counts as something off. It's almost as if he's alive again.

---

Nudging his mount towards Lucien's carriage, Kiril hears the fleshcrafter talking to himself. Should he open the carriage door, he'll find Lucien in his current position, having shed his bindings (and clothes in the process), covered in blood (largely his own), sitting by the naked Barabus in what is absolutely not a compromising-looking situation at all, no siree.

"There you are." Lucien says. I thought i told you to bind me properly." He scolds playfully. "I dont know what exactly happend. Just pain, unbearable amounts of pain... "Now,   i feel almost alive. I feel more alive than ever. I feel countless spirits around us. And my koldun magic, i dont know. it feels augmented. More powerfull" He states. "And him. His wounds are restored, the kupala is biding its time to strike."

"I presume this means you've changed your mind, then?" Kiril replies, carefully attempting to keep any hint of emotion from his voice.  "In that case, I'll have your sire notified you saw no further reason to abide by his request.   

You may want to put some clothing on before he arrives.  Or perhaps not, I can't say I know what Tzimisce consider mannerly."

Maintaining a calm demeanor, Kiril readies his tentacles to strike at any sign of resistance or aggression from Lucien.  "As I've stated, Barabus is no longer your concern.  He belongs to me, and I will deal with him as I see fit."

It's at this point that Ennius pokes his head in the wagon, looking tense, knuckles stabdung out tightly in his hand as he grips his sword.

He seems to visibly relax on seeing and hearing Lucien, "my lord, you have clothes in your wagon, let me escort you" - Ennius puts out his hand to Lucien.

As he puts out his hand to Lucien, he gives Kiril a hard look, as if he wants to tell the Lasombra something but can't in Lucien's presence.

The second Lucien's hand reaches Ennius' the loyal servant jerks his hand back, pulling Lucien off balance. A sharp pain explodes outward from his gut, glancing downward he sees a sword sticking out of his stomach; attacked to it the same hand that had never left the hilt.

Looking back up, Lucien just manages to catch Ennius' gaunleted fist with his face, the blow snapping his head back and disorienting him.

Ennius then flings Lucien from the wagon onto the ground.

Ennius looks to Kiril - "Now, before he recovers!"

Kiril uses three of his tentacles to restrain Lucien.  With the fourth, he bashes Lucien in the face.

"Ow." Lucien says groggily. "Well, i did ask for this."

"But, if i could get out of your bindings that easy, so could that... thing."

"Do it properly." He orders.

"But this has gone on long enough. I am in control of myself now, and Sandor is Certainly in the city by now."

Then he looks at Ennius. "Get me some clothes, and Sandors (whatever it is he gave him for Contact sire ritual).

Then he looks at Kiril. "Unrestrain me. I will contact Sandor once again."

Before Lucien can finish talking, Kiril's tendri whips him across the face, smashing the back of his skull open on the cobblestone path and shattering his jaw.

He is just barely clinging to consciousness at this point.

Lucien wisely does absolutely nothing, even though he really, really would want to make customised lava geyser, on the precise spot Kiril is standing. So insteads opts for continued nothingness until the point in time when he can talk to people without getting his face bashed in.

Though his jaw is broken badly and he suffers from an uncomfortable amount of disorientation, his refusal is quite clear, though in his current state it comes off as pleading more than disciplinarian.

Everyone ignores him, of course, for he is not in any way to be trusted in his current state.

The disadvantages and advantages of having a loyal servant or good friends - when they do not think you are "yourself", they will do whatever is necessary to bring you back.

Ennius answers Kiril with some trepidation - "I suppose... I suppose if it's necessary."

Clearly Ennius does not relish the prospect of feeding from Lucien's tainted blood.

"It's not necessary at all," Kiril replies, reluctant to see Ennius damaged.  "We could easily dismember him instead. There are a number of viable options for arousing him from torpor."

Lucien begins oozing dark, dark blood from his pores - a foul smell floods the air, inundating Kiril's senses as the blood reaches the street and sinks into the earth between the cobblestones, leaving dark stains behind as it does so. Kiril might find it curious that the earth almost welcomes the blood, seemingly drinking it up (it simply drains unreasonably fast). He also notes that the blood flows a distinct distance away from the tendrils - almost as if it refuses to touch them.

Ennius drops a torch onto the spot where the blood flowed out and sets it alight.

---

Lucien's head feels like it's being pounded by a gang of hammer wielding giants, he feels like a man stranded in a desert, being dipped up to his neck in sweet, sweet god-blessed water - but he cannot crane his neck far enough to bring his lips to the cool fluid.

His blood is drunk eagerly by the earth, and he feels a black stain spreading across the souls of the spirits below. They struggle briefly against the will of the Demon but succumb fully with startling speed.

The spirits gather up beneath Lucien, and what feels like a dozen whispering voices plead with him, beg him even - to tell them his will.

When Ennius drops the torch on Lucien's blood and picks him up, slinging him over his shoulder, the spirits scream in outrage. Lucien feels them preparing to come out of the ground and attempt to rend Ennius limb from limb for his presumptions. Not his picking up of Lucien, mind you, but the burning of that sweet nectarine blood.

---

Sherazhina frowns and states with unwavering certainty - "Something's just gone horribly wrong."

Kiril cannot help but agree, his preternatural senses fill him with terrible foreboding.

Lucky for him that he arrived at such a late hour, most of the city is asleep. Other than perhaps a beggar or two in the nearby alleyways, there are no witnesses to what is about to happen.

Elias draws his sword and sighs, facing Lucien, "Just when I thought we caught ourselves a break." The first words he's spoken since they got back to Sofia. No doubt the captain had been looking forward to a break.

Lucien is shocked at what he feels. The power is disgusting. Tainting the earth, why had he been given this power? Was it not their lot in life, the old clan Tzimisce, who spent their lifes fighting this very corruption

"The spirits below await *my* instructions.." he thinks to himself. "Perhaps... i can undo what i did here..." then he stares at the earth below them as Ennius hews him up.

He feels them. Pounding, below the earth. Disgusting, really. "Very well." He thinks. He will with all his might try to get spirits to attack Kiril first. As long as it didnt require him to actually say anything. He didnt want to defy Kiril openly. Ennius will no doubt cast Lucien aside the moment the spirits emerge. But with any luck, his own servant will sustain minimum damage.

Kiril knows that Kupala is a demon, and he has noted that the kupala and even Lucien's own blood have avoided his shadows.  This leads him to conclude that they fear the darkness of the Abyss- most likely because it is the place where demonic entities are kept chained.

He readies his tentacles to defend himself.  And his ghouls.

And Ennius.  Shame if he were harmed because of his master's incompetence.

The spirits hesitate at Lucien's request. He sees that they fear the shadowcaster and their rage is directed almost exclusively towards Ennius - but they aquires a, still bound by the newly formed bond on a manner not unlike the blood bond Lucien has on Ennius.

Kiril has a moment's warning, his senses alert him to a slight tremble in the ground. Using his Read Aura ability he sees black lines of corruption (terribly reminiscent of the ones he created when he diabblerized Husayn) flowing out of Lucien and into the earth, where a mass of what appears to be pure hatred boils just below him.

He manages to step to the side just as the cobblestone street bursts apart, a blackish geyser erupting where he'd stood - drops of corruptive essence combining midair into 5 masses of the liquid, that quickly solidify into short, evil-looking wild things. Like little story-elves gone wrong, with vicious claws and teeth and thick furry hides.

They don't appear to be too threatening, none of them being any larger than a large dog, but looks can be deceiving.

The others react but Kiril moves faster than any of them...

Kiril attacks the spirits with his tentacles.  They seem to fear the shadow, perhaps they'll focus on him & leave Ennius and Elias free to attack.

Kiril's tendrils lash out at the kupala and the things all move to evade them, squealing with discontent and more than a bit of fear at the shadows - three of them evade the tendrils, and two are caught by them, their little bodies crushed and broken by the tendrils - though they do not appear to suffer any particular pain from being constricted, the things panic at the touch of the tendrils and flail about in a berserk rage, clawing desperately at the darkness and destroying it in the process.

Elias moves in front of Kiril and takes a defensive stance in front of his master, his shield raised and sword pulled back. One of the little demons tries to dart between his legs and is impaled for it's trouble. It screeches wildly and begins pulling itself up Elias' sword and clawing at his legs, while two others flank him - one leaping onto his sword arm and the other trying to jump on his left shoulder - though he bashes it out of the air with his shield and sends it flying into a wall. Cursing, the guard captain flings away his sword - the kupala still impaled on it screeching in indignation as it is thrown from the fight - and shield and pulls a dagger out of his belt with his left hand, stabbing at the kupala on his arm even as it bites into and through his armour, its tiny little teeth ripping apart the muscles in his right shoulder.

Ennius bullrushes the two injured Kupala, crushing one under his shield with such strength that it dissolves back into black liquid, and decapitating the other.

Lucien watches on contentedly. He doesn't even notice Sherazhina until she impales him with the stake, and by then it's too late. The revenant beauty leaves the Tzimisce paralyzed in his position on the ground while the others deal with the rest of the Kupala.

Kiril's remaining two tendrils both snap at the Kupala on Elias' shoulder, one throwing it off his shoulder and the other grabbing it from the air and dashing it against the ground.

The one Elias batted out of the air picks itself up and hurls itself towards Kiril - the Lasombra sees it coming but moves to slowly to evade it, and it's little claws tear effortlessly through the muscles in his calf, tearing out large chunks of his flesh! Grunting in pain, Kiril stumbles as the muscles supporting him in his left leg are made completely useless.

The one on Elias' sword pulls itself free of its impalement and attacks the nearest target- right now Ennius, who had just destroyed two of its kind. It jumps up and rips at his stomach, tearing through the armour like wet paper but leaving the smooth, hard flesh under the armour completely untouched. Ennius smashes the thing's skull apart with two quick bashes with his shield.

Elias spins in place and cuts the Kupala tearing at Kiril's leg to pieces.

Everything has been destroyed. Elias begins stalking over angrily towards Lucien - Kiril notes Ennius shifts into his way.

Sherazhina moves to help Kiril and lets him lean on her for support. Fearing some sort of fight between Elias and Ennius (undoubtedly ending terribly for Elias), Kiril is about to speak up when he notices that Elias stops moving towards Ennius. Some sort of unspoken exchange passes between the two soldiers and Elias moves back to Kiril's side, a touch more relaxed but still most certainly displeased at the result of Lucien's actions.

Kiril looks at Ennius.

Simply magnificent. . .

I suppose it would be imprudent to try and take him as my own while Lucien is otherwise occupied.


He beckons Elias.  "Hopefully we've finished with this nonsense.  Find me someone to feed from, so I can repair this damage."

To sherazhina, he says "That was perfect. We should have just staked him from the start."

I believe Ennius would take as much of an affront to that as Lucien.

Elias frowns at Kiril's request but heads off in the direction of the castle overlooking Sophia.

At his statement to Sherazhina - It certainly would have been more prudent, Husayn mentions.

Sherazhina herself shrugs and says "no one thought to mention it."

Kiril is annoyed by Elias's reaction.  Why is he frowning?  What could I have done to upset him? 

. . . He wasn't really willing.  Only because he would have died. He doesn't want this. 

It won't matter.  Blood is all that binds any of us.

Blood bonds all, Husayn echoes in agreement.

But in this specific case, I believe Elias may have been wondering how he could feed your appetite without the innocent citizens of this city suffering. See how he goes to the palace? Undoubtedly to bring you the scum in its dungeons to feed on.

Indeed he is. Ennius has slung Lucien over his shoulder and makes to swing him back into the carriage - only to freeze in place.

"Oh god", he whispers ever so slightly.

Turning in place Kiril sees Barabus - massive, dried black blood crusting his body, sitting casually out the side of the wagon. His muscles are taught and the veins almost bursting out of his skin remain black. His wholly black eyes look on Ennius with something reminiscent of amusement. His savage face looks like it was shattered and very badly healed (which it was).

"It would seem the Shaper is just beginning to learn the various aspects of his curse."

The last time Kiril had seen Barabus the man had been more than insane, he was feral. Now he speaks with a practised quiet confidence and eloquence that reminds Kiril of Carinus.

"And the Knight the extent of his quandary."

He smiles, his teeth standing out with surprising whiteness against his blackened gums and saliva.

"And 'NOW' He wakes up." Lucien thinks to himself. "Aw shit. Typical. Staked by the ghoul whore, only for barabus to wake in The middle of this shit. Bah."

What fresh hell is this?
Kiril deeply regrets ever becoming involved in this situation. 
Shaper?  Knight? 

It's like accidentally wandering on stage in the middle of a play, and you're trying to discreetly exit, but now the actors are looking at you as though you're expected to say something. . .

Perhaps a gentle touch is in order? Barabus does not appear to be hostile as of yet, and once Ennius' shock wears off he might just attack. Then who will carry Lucien?

"Ennius, wait--"

Kiril has no idea if Lucien's servant will listen to him. 

"Perhaps we can discuss this like civilized people?"

Ennius does not act, likely out of an exceedingly great reluctance to do so as well as Kiril's own request.

Barabus laughs - a deep, unsettling boom.

"Civility? You expect civility from us? From me, of all people? From them, of all monsters?"

"Well, you're conversing with us, rather than attacking," Kiril points out.

The monster in the man laughs,

"Well said Kiril! Perhaps I should stop?"

"That... Won't be necessary", Ennius says.

"I would not fight you Barranus."

Something flashes in Barrabus' eyes. For a second something like a ripple passes over his skin, but Barabus settles himself back against the carriage.

"Interesting choice of words."

He looks to Kiril then, "I would have clothes, if you could spare them."
