Good ol' Jack

Post by Hemata on Thu Aug 27, 2015 6:16 pm

(ST is Jack)

Jack needed to be put down, a dangerous thing of greed and sin. Jack's actions rippled over into the Shadow from those came to him. Spirits of Greed and Anguish and Addiction flocked to his side, hoping to get those he seduced to seal themselves away in an anchor. But Jack was no man, he was a place. Shadow-Diver had his next hunt coming quickly.

His blue eyes stared coldly at the Casino, "One-Eyed Jack" its title said. His hands went into the pockets of his duster coat and he took a step inside. The air was thick with the smell of tobacco and it made the Storm Lord happy he wasn't walking in with his wolf senses active. He looked out of place in his own way, sporting a look even few Americans would do. His brown duster going down to his ankles and his hat covering his black hair. Some kind of strange cowboy, an odd sight that would no doubt draw attention briefly, as well as a few mocking murmurs.

Shadow-Diver's eyes scanned the room, thinking of what he might do...He could feel the shadow pressing against this place, it was getting out of hand. Something would start slipping through, someone would become open to something...It was only a matter of time and who knows how long it would take for someone to be fully claimed. "Wonder who manages this dump.." The wolf would mutter to himself, wondering just how to approach this next....

"I'll meet you back at the hotel."

"Slinking off already?"
Ramsey mused, his eyes scanning across his towering companion. It was the same conversation, only Atul never seemed to be able to find a decent excuse.

"It's been twenty years since I've been here last. It will be crucial to...Re-find my bearings."

"Your bearings?" Ramsey smirked. "Of course. Just be careful, yeah?"

What might've been a warm smile was all but snuffed away beneath the scarf that clung to Atul's face. Not that his current smile was anything to cherish either.

"Be safe, Ramsey. We will be speaking again soon." The tall man replied in a hushed, calm tone as he began trudging off down a vacant alley. It wasn't a lie this time. At least, he hoped it wasn't. The memories were foggy on the dull boat trip from Dubai, but upon arrival at sunset with London's Port greeting them, the seasoned Nosferatu immediately recalled the immense nature of this City. It was something he held dear, those foggy docks along the quiet Thames. He had experienced it so many decades ago, the memories of his still-beating heart and untwisted body bringing a stark, sobering feeling throughout him. His footsteps echoed through the streets, until he finally came across the distant ambiance of a crowd. Turning, Atul Proceeded to wrap up his hands with bits of cloth bandages he had stuffed into his pockets, which he used to wrap each of his enormous, claw-like hands with.

There, nestled atop one of the numerous brick-fashioned buildings hissed a neon-glistening sign reading 'One-Eyed Jack'. Beyond the chatting groups, Atul could practically taste the pungent fumes of smoke and other elicit substances. He knew by the strange atmosphere that clung to the air there was something off about the joint, and it wasn't the rigged slots or cheating dealers. Reaching within his coat, the lumbering man retrieved a crumpled up cigarette from the half-emptied pack he had procured from the trip through the Atlantic and approached the entrance doors. Upon entering, Atul kept silent as he strode through the crowd, keeping his concealed expression lowered as he scanned around the cluttered lobby toward the other rooms. Now standing in the midst of shifting crowds, Atul began concealing himself into a state of gradual non-detection with the use of his gifts of Vampiric subtlety. Blending in would be difficult if it weren't for the multitudes of Casino goers, which was something the crafty Haunt made quick use of. From here, he would descend further into Jack's corridors, on the lookout for anything out of place as he rummages through his coat pockets for his lighter. (Using Obfuscate 1 ability at the end here to keep Atul mostly unnoticed.)

Shadow-Diver's eyes looked over the Casino with judgement and disgust. He never understood how anyone, human or otherwise, could fall into such depravities. Dreams could die in these places, smashed by greed and overconfidence. It was just one of the many ways the horrors known as spirit-ridden were created. Whether or not any had been created was a different story but he couldn't imagine one was too terribly far off.

Nothing seemed too out of place just yet at least, he noted, just humans gambling away their money, some stranger wearing bandages across his body and a strange sense that someone was pulling the strings to this whole puppet show. Of course the Werewolf would normally find the appearance of someone wrapped up tight in bandages from head to toe but without anything to see through illusions it all seemed perfectly normal to him. The large man moved through the Casino and regarded everything with those cold, storm-filled eyes.

"Jack you are a diseased horse on its last legs, aren't you?" He said as if the place itself could hear him. Though there was a very distinct chance the spirit of the Casino's building itself could have heard him. He silently hoped in the back of his head that the spirit took no offense to him, he didn't want to deal with any potential threats here as well as a pissed off building. He certainly didn't fear it but he would be a fool to go picking battles at random.
