    The full moon shines on the fading 200 storie hospital in the hisil, with moans of pain echoing just below hearing. That the physical hospital only had 7 floors is irrelevant. The hisil cares not for your logic.

    A large tree spirit stands guard southeast of the hospital, batting away a small horde of rot and decay spirits with contempt.

    Tiny watches the tree from a distance, though not too close to interfere. just close enough to watch, study, and hopefully understand.

    The midnight wolf melts out of shadow, motes of glass and asphalt swirling around his feet like dust in the desert.

    The wolf's head cranes up as it grows in height and morphs in shape. Bleeds Well, bulky and hairy in Dalu, searches the sky with his eyes, slowly bring his gaze down and around to Tiny.

    1 success to investigate


    The brooding Rahu grunts in greeting. "Anything strange?"

    Emily has several tattooes:
    - a sleeve of vines and flowers on her right upper arm and shoulder
    - a collection of stars on her left wrist, tapering up her arm
    - flowers on her right foot around her ankle
    - A crescent moof on her left shoulderblade

    Sniff. Sniff.

    It was so much easier to practice one's lupine talents in the Hisil. The humans tended to freak out if they saw a wolf wandering through the suburbs, and there were just too many eyes. hunting from one prey was one thing, but all the people? The cameras? Next to impossible.

    However, this was a trail. Someone familiar - pack. The silver-furred wolf Emily-Urhan padded her way through the urban Hisil, following her nose more than her eyes. Musky, of fur and the wild. It was Bleeds Well, that much she was certain. If you couldn't tell pack by scent, what even were you? She looped around, staying downwind, making the trail easier to follow.

    A second scent joined it, another Pack scent. This one more.... stuffy. Less of the natural musk, more of the urban smells that subconsciously locked into the clothes of dull human senses. Tiny, like her, was more tied to the human world than their feral Alpha and sulky Rahu.

    Still, there was no way of knowing what was there, whether this was a hunt or not. Even if the Pack was spread, the Wolf still must Hunt.

    She padded out towards the tree, weaving around the two Wolves. <<Hunting?>> she asks questioningly, barely above a whisper.

    <<Maybe, maybe make some friends.>> He nods to Emily simply. He's reminded of one of his mother's favorite phrases 'ask not Elodoth for counsel, for they will say both no and yes.'

    "A few bits and bobs. The tree could be an ally, it looks like its doing ok for now, but I haven't looked into what the humans are doing on the other side. Its still standing strong, so I suspect they haven't done anything too egregious. I'm more worried about the hospital." He gestures to the faded building, whose moans and groans permeate the air. "Without a physical anchor, the healing spirit is doomed, but its choir isn't so contained. Pain, suffering, blood and sickness spirits might latch onto the homes and people here, causing accidents, or provoking diseases, or just giving up and going magath." He growls, stumped with how to handle the problem.

    Bleeds shrugs boulders before offering Emily a feral grin. "Perhaps."

    Gravel rumbles in the Rahu's chest. "Thinking maybe we should go say hi to Mr. Tree before we investigate the interior. Got any rites for cleansing in your tool chest?"

    The wolf rolls it's eyes at the Elodoth and sniffs. <<Half-answer can be worse than lie>> she mutters grumpily.

    Urhan-Emily listeds to the other speak, then sniffs. <<Heal-den old. Hunt spirits of plague and death. Respect Prey, but return them to essence. Disperse. Return to Pangea. Birth as new spirits in right place.>> It all seemed pretty obvious to the Ithaeur.

    She gives Bleed Well a reproacheful look. <<Not cleanse - not scar. Not wound. Hunt the dark spirits to remove them. Chase, trap, bind... destroy.>> The silvery lupine emits something of a sigh.

    The wolf arches and twists into the shape of Clarion Call's azure-haired Cresent Moon. "Urgh. Sometimes there just aren't the words. Removing Spirits you don't want isn't 'cleansing', in the proper sense - We can deal and cajole and run them out, but that's how we remove the spirits we "don't like". Do it properly, with respect... bit it still boils down to hunting them off our patch."

    "True. I have to be careful with my words." He nods to the Beta.


    "So we talk to the tree, and then we go put some spirits to rest in the hospital, and if we get overwhelmed we come back another day. Marathon, not a sprint. Good thing wolves are made for distance."


    "I do lots of talking already, Bleeds, do you want to take point with the tree? Give you a chance to pay each spirit in kind." He says to the younger wolf. While Tiny doesn't have lots of experience with fighting, Bleeds could use just the same experience with talking.

    Bleeds frowns as he's reproached, reflecting inwardly on Emily's words. His eyes dart between Emily and Tiny.

    There's a looooong pause, as he ponders the Elodoth's suggestion. He finally responds with action rather than words. Making his way towards the old spirit. The Rahu's stride is slow, methodical, purposeful. He stops far enough away from the spirit to be able to take it all in without straining his neck.

    Bleeds speaks slowly, clearly <<Greetings. I am Bleeds-Well. The protector of Clarion's Call. I desire knowledge of yourself and the location you protect entry.>> Not at all the cunning, quiet approach their totem would prefer. But not just bursting through the doors seems like a step in the right direction.

    Emily padded along behind, watching the Elodoth and the Rahu make their moves.

    She didn't want to stifle their actions. Best everyone know the basics of dealing with spirits.

    Tiny follows along, stepping into the Rahu's role, paying close attention to the surroundings, giving Bleeds the opportunity without worrying about others.

    The spirit looks to him, as three branches smash down around the area, pulverizing the decay spirits that cling to it.

    <<I am all that remains, all around is death and decay, and I will not succumb. And I do not care for you, Luna's get. Piss off.>>

    A branch smashes one of the decay spirits right in front of Bleeds, spiritual leaves flying.
