Elizabeth walks up with a neutral expression, trying not to give any sign of apprehension.

Elizabeth is perhaps a bit taken aback by her demeanor. Is she old, like many of the others? Has she seen her around?

"...I do. I am Elizabeth."

Does she offer to shake her hand, bow, or do any other courtesy? If so, Elizabeth responds in kind.

She is young, blond and well dressed.  Very attractive, but her eyes and smile are a bit too feral for your comfort.  You've occasionally seen her in the background when the Haxan have gathered, usually whispering in someone's ear.  She does not appear to be of german descent, unlike many of the Haxan.  She gives a quick, light curtsey.

Elizabeth bows in return. She's never been one for dresses or curtsies.

"...Most of my work has been in furthering my understanding of the world or using that knowledge in service to others. They keep me grounded.

I've seen you around, before. Did you grow up, here?"

"Ha!  No, my family fled from Spain and it's patriarchy.  This new land is dreadfully drab, and seems to have a lot of the problems of the old one.  But with Washington's folly, we may find a freer life yet.  Have the sisters made you an offer yet?"

"Had you practiced the art before your move? I've studied the history of it a bit, but I'm largely unaware of recent developments outside of the colonies.

I have not been made an offer, apart from helping to organize the truce between the humans and ghouls.

Were you involved with them before you moved?"

"Of course."

(Her facial expressions and tone are odd.  She comes across as someone in a mask pretending to be human.)

"Here will do."


You are of the opinion she is suffering corruption from too much spellcasting.

People clearly know something is going on, as they are giving you a wider berth, and clutching their guns tightly as they move by.  The other 'sisters' look a bit nervous whenever Isabella speaks.

Does Elizabeth have any inkling as to why the other sisters are nervous? Perhaps Isabella is a higher rank despite looking young, or is seen as impulsive?

If you had to guess they're closer to being human---like you.  You'd guess Isabella has cast enough spells she's lost a large portion of her humanity, and may think in ways you no longer do.  She's less a woman than a woman shaped predatory thing.

ooc: I'll be doing 60 hour weeks through November unless things change, so my posting will be more sporadic.

"'We?' I thought it was just the ghouls who were leaving, or do you mean that you will be helping facilitate the move?

But yes, that is the timeline that I understood. Will I have any role in it beyond making sure the initial tributes are provided?"
