    Behavior

    Goes by Jack. Has never introduced himself to anyone as Jacque.

    Educated, scholarly, lawyer, scientist.
    Jack's outward demeanor and tone are a baseline of respectful and calculated.

    He actively debates, persuades, negotiates and even at time tries to intimidate, as core skills of any lawyer worth his salt.

    Cabin fever.

    It is about the only description there is for it. The world feels like it dips into a lull after the winter solstice only to start begin stretching its legs after the equinox- lest they go mad from the stillness.

    Jacque never really paid much mind to the habit until this year. Things were... different in the Domain. No threats or challenges, no puzzles or predicaments and not even so much as a political power play. Even most normal conversations among his kind felt forced to the point they were devoid of any real substance. All in all, it was incredibly boring.

    So the Lord found himself here, in some random pub that was trending up in popularity. They had recently advertised an extended late night happy hour menu, so the promise was good for something... fresh. He was dressed slightly more casual than usual, but not anything less than a refined taste. He purchased a handful of random Keno tickets and placed them at open chairs around the bar, keeping two for himself as he sat at an empty table. Keeping one eye on the Keno display, he waited and watched for how the night would unfold.

    This particular place has been rising in popularity lately, so of course it was Shodan's Libertine duty to show up, check the place out. A crowd of Sleepers can be a dangerous thing for a mage, but it can also be absolutely inspiring. And even if no insights or enlightenment can be gained here, then at least he'll have a nice night out. Either way, a win.

    He's here in a suit with some extensive adornments. Call it a quirk, but unless you are specifically keeping a low profile, why not try and turn a head or two?

    The first thing out of the ordinary that he notices are the Keno tickets. Why are they lying around like that? After a moment to ascertain they are not actually someone's, Shodan takes one, buys himself a beer, and after that his eyes almost immediately fall on the classy, handsome guy, sitting alone at a table. The mental debate of whether or not to disturb him is fairly short.

    "Uh, excuse me?" He initiates "Are you waiting for someone, or can I sit here?" There are probably not that many seats where he wouldn't rely on someone's hospitality, anyway "Also, do you know who left all these tickets around, and why?"

    Jacque's eyes traced over to the flamboyant man with his matching suit, "Please, have a seat." He always had a thing for paisley vests. He smiled at the question, "They say the first thing you should do if you win the lotto is sign the ticket." He shrugged, "Can't imagine someone caring much for keeping them if they aren't keeping them close to the chest." The lord offered his hand, "The name is Alex."

    The sweet, fragrant smells of roses mixed with lilacs emanate from her as she casts magic. The scent intensifies, bordering on intoxicating, when Life magic is cast. When Aurora casts Vulgar magic, the scent takes a nasty turn, to the putrid, nauseating odor of a rotting corpse. The stronger the magic, the more those around want to retch at the smell.

    One thing that she had missed while being gone? The numerous pubs and bars that the city had to offer. A good way to just unwind and if you were lucky, someone interesting to talk to.

    Pubs weren’t nightclubs, and as such, she didn’t dress up too much. But, probably more then required for a pub. She went with her favorite one shouldered sweater and leather skirt. Why not? Lets have some fun!

    Breezing into the room, blue eyes do a quick scan, noting the handsome guy at a table, might be worth a chat, and walks up to the bar. Pubs didn’t usually carry what she liked, so she went with whatever they had on draft. While waiting, the ticket was picked up and looked over. Gambling hadn’t been her thing in a while. Well, since becoming a Shaman. Luck just wasn’t hers to play with anymore.

    Entering the bar, Twist paused to let her eyes adjust to the new lighting vitae flush her skin. It wasn't quite a crush of bodies inside, but it was clear that the rumors of it being popular were not understated.

    Over at one of the tables she caught sight of Jacque conversing with a statement suit, but before she could see if it was just the two of them the crowd shifted and instead she saw an opening at the bar. Sliding up next to a the striking figure of Aurora she placed a quick order for a drink and offered a shared smile to the woman.

    "Do you think they were popular before they were popular?" she asked, bumping her head toward their locale.
