Yatashi: Part 9


Scene IX

Yatashi And Kragalldwir

Yatashi's viewpoint

Not much happens here, although potential is created, and the relationship between Yatashi and Constantine is shown.

Yatashi grins.

Jaime wanders over to Usagi's table.

Constantine grins. "Yatashi, hey. How goes?"

Jaime says "Hm, any idea where she is?"

Ethan smiles to Yatashi, then looks back to Usagi.

Usagi says "Well, she could be kidnapped... just kidding."

Jaime says "Hrm."

Yatashi says "Constantine."

Usagi says "She's probably back home, where we can't get in...."

Yatashi looks around the bar. "Well enough."

Jaime says "Oh."
Jaime says "Hey, Hugh. How about that review?"

Constantine says "Sit with me?"
Constantine walks over to the large round table.

Kirren's seems older, changed somehow and not as open as she once appeared.

Constantine sits down at the large round table near the far wall.

Hugh arches his eyebrow. "review?"

Yatashi grins. "Of course."

Ethan tips his hat back and narrows his eyes as he looks to Usagi.

Jaime says "Ya, did Crash give you one yet?"

Corwin mutters to Kirren, "Should... really.... you here..."

[You sit yourself down at the large round table near the far wall.]
[Yatashi sits down and joins you.]

Kirren smiles and nods to Corwin.

Constantine orders a pot of Aspnes Kona. Astrid hands it to Velma, who takes it to the large round table near the far wall and sets it before him.

Hugh shakes his head.

Constantine says "How've you been?"

Corwin kind of waves at Kirren, Merlin, Moire, in general.

Hugh says "Not yet."
Hugh says "Uh, Kirren do you still want to catch a movie some time."

Moire nods to Corwin as he goes.

Corwin steps into the shadows and slowly fades away. Or that's your impression, at least.

Merlin nods to Corwin.

Corwin steps out from a shadowy corner, near the mirror.

Hugh says "I'm just curious is all."

Yatashi considers. "Well enough. Father is annoying, as usual."

Kirren grins at hugh, "Sure... what's new at the box office these days?"

Simon appears as a two-dimensional outline of bright blue sparks. He steps aways from them, and they fall to the floor and fade.
Simon has arrived.
Simon appears suddenly in a riot of sound and shape.

Simon looks around.

Constantine nods to Simon.

Merlin grins at Corwin.

Usagi nods to Simon too.

Constantine says "Mmm. I was talking to Tiffany yesterday. She's having problems."

Corwin waits patiently near the mirror.

Hugh says "I dont know, but i can check if you like."

Simon nods in return to Constantine.

Yatashi glances over at Simon.

Usagi says "Tiffany? Did someone try to summon her or something?"

Kirren nods, "Sure, just not one of those horror flicks. They're so unrealisitc..."

At your table, Yatashi says "A friend?"

Merlin wanders in Corwin's direction.

Moire glances at Corwin, stifling a laugh, then looks at Hugh.

Simon walks over towards Corwin.

Merlin steps into the shadows and slowly fades away. Or that's your impression, at least.

Simon sits down at the tiny table near the mirror.

Ethan pulls his hat down over his ears, now looking very confused.

Hugh says "How bout the Fugitive."

Simon leans his chair back against the wall and contemplates the bar.

Merlin steps out from a shadowy corner, near the mirror.

At your table, Constantine says "Simon? An acquainatance."

Merlin says "Well?"

Corwin mutters to himself, "Fitting."

Kirren doesn't realize Corwin's returned to the room,"Hm, what's it about?"

Moire looks at her table, then at the mirror which Merlin just stepped through. "No manners to speak of?"

Corwin glances at Merlin. "Hm?"

Merlin says "Forgive, thought you wanted me."

At your table, Yatashi says "Feel free to invite him over, if you like."

Kirren says "I like Clint Eastwood though... how bout 'In line of fire'?"

Yatashi murmurs to Constantine, glancing again at Simon.

Corwin says "Oh, that. Later."

Merlin nods.
Merlin wanders back to where he was sitting.

Hugh says "That would be alot better in this case i think."

Corwin mutters again, "Another interesting choice."

Merlin sits down at the booth on the far wall.

Jaime turns from Ethan to Usagi and talks to her.

Simon strokes his chin thoughtfully, studying the bar.

Constantine says "Join me, Lord Jesby?"

Hugh arches his eyebrow at Corwin.

Kirren blinks, "Oh, hello, dear. You know Hugh, don't you?"

Moire nods shortly to Merlin.

Simon looks curiously over at Constantine, and stands, "It'd be my pleasure."

Hugh says "Or how 'bout the Unforgiven."

Corwin snickers.
Corwin says "No, not really. Should I?"

Simon strolls by the bar, grabs a tumbler of amaretto and ice, and approaches>Constantine.

Kirren says "Saw that one."

Hugh says "I don't think I have had the pleasure of meeting Prince Corwin."

Simon sits down at the large round table near the far wall.
[Simon sits down and joins you.]

Constantine grins slightly. "This is my friend Yatashi, who I've been introducing around."

Usagi shouts over "Hi Yatashi."

At your table, Simon squints a little at Yatashi, and extends a hand, "Simon Oucihi, Lord Jesby."

At your table, Simon corrects, "Ouichi."

Hugh says "But i have read a great deal and heard a great deal about him."

Yatashi smiles to Simon. "Pleasant to mee ..." He glances over at Usagi, grins widely with jaw low, and then turns back to Simon. "meet you."

At your table, Yatashi shakes.

At your table, Constantine says "How fares Jesby? Have you heard the recent news?"

Corwin folds his arms and leans against the wall, waiting.

At your table, Simon turns to Constantine, "That depends on which recent news you mean."

Hugh says "So when do you want to go see In the Line of Fire."

Simon sips his amaretto, and talks quietly with Constantine.

At your table, Constantine says "Luagha's death."

At your table, Simon nods, "Mmmm, someone mentioned it yesterday. Can't say I'm terribly surprised."
At your table, Simon says "In fact I'm only surprised it took this long."

Jaime seems embarassed but keeps talking to Usagi.

At your table, Constantine says "Mmm. Though the reason he was killed is interesting."

At your table, Simon says "Oh? I didn't hear details really."

At your table, Yatashi cocks an ear.

At your table, Constantine says "Finndo killed him because he killed Cymoril, or so I'm told."

Hugh twiddles his thumbs.

Jaime winks to Ethan

At your table, Simon says "Considering I know nothing of a connection between King Finndo and Cymoril, that certainly is interesting."

Kragalldwir appears in a rainbow sparkle.
Kragalldwir has arrived.

Usagi says "Hi Krag."

Simon nods at Krag, "Lord Stryl."

At your table, Constantine says "You didn't know? Cymoril and he were friends. In fact, when Finndo kidnapped Lerias away from Yyvrael, Cymoril aided him."

Constantine says "Hey, Krag."

Yatashi glances over at Kragalldwir.

[Kragalldwir]
A large creature, covered head to toe in scales. Its skin is the color of a cathedral gargoyle, and its appearance is very similar to said creature, right up to the bat-like wings sprouting from the middle of its back. Its hands have six fingers and a thumb apiece, each ending in a two inch claw, razor sharp, and having several more knuckles than a human hand. The creature's mouth is filled with razor sharp teeth, and the face is covered with horns, spikes, and other sharp, unpleasant-looking things. On the forehead is the sigil of the Order of the Serpent. On the left shoulder is a blazon, bearing the winged serpent of House Stryl.
Carrying:
Scottish Broadsword
Trump Deck
Heart of Fire
Set of Daggers
Necklace

Yatashi's eyes light up.

Kragalldwir scans the bar, as a predator would. He inclines his head deeply to Lord Jesby and Lord Constantine, in turn.

At your table, Yatashi says "This is Lord Stryl?"

At your table, Simon says "Ah, I suppose I don't keep up as well as I should."
At your table, Simon nods over at Krag, "Yep, Lord Stryl."

At your table, Constantine says "Mmm, it is."
At your table, Constantine says "Well, you'd been out of touch for a bit. It's understandable."

Yatashi asks in Kragalldwir's direction, "Lord Stryl?"

At your table, Simon nods, "They must've been awfully good friends. King Finndo doesn't extend such revenge for mere friends very often."

Simon sips his amaretto.

At your table, Constantine says "Mmm. I've found that those he's close to, he's very close to. There's also a political aspect, I expect."

Moire glances over to Corwin where he stands by the mirror.

Kragalldwir turns to look at Yatashi, his eyes lightly aglow. "You have the advantage of me..."

Merlin nods, "Sorry, gotta run.

Jaime gets up and reaches across the table to Ethan, "Nice meeting you."

Azuth appears in an explosion of silver and green flame.

Yatashi says "Please ... join us. I have been hoping to speak to you, and I am in pleasant company."

Moire smiles at Merlin. "Thanks for the suggestion, Merlin."

Hugh waves to Merlin.

Azuth waves vaguely.

Constantine says "Azuth, good afternoon."

Yatashi says "I am Yatashi, for such as names matter."

At your table, Simon nods slowly, "He's quite concerned with things political. Well, I suppose Luagha met his match finally. Can't say I miss him."

Hugh says "Lo Azuth."

Merlin walks around the corner of the room, but doesn't return.
Merlin takes a few steps while flickering out of existence.

Azuth says "Hello, 'Tine, Hugh."

Kragalldwir looks at Constantine and Simon, vaguely in askance.

At your table, Constantine says "Can't blame you."

Usagi says "To who do names not matter?"

Constantine nods to Krag. "Please."

Tanith appears in a rainbow sparkle.

Moire says "Hello, Azuth."

Simon nods agreement at Krag.

Azuth smiles at Kirren and Moire.

Usagi says "Hi Tanith!"

Constantine says "Tanith, hey."

Azuth waves to Tanith.

Tanith smiles and waves. "Hiya."

Corwin says "Ah, well. Someone let me know how it turns out."

Jaime starts walking to the mirror, "Heya Tanith."

Azuth nods to Hugh.

Kragalldwir sits down at the large round table near the far wall.
[Kragalldwir sits down and joins you.]

Corwin steps into the shadows and slowly fades away. Or that's your impression, at least.

Hugh says "Hiya, Tanith."

Yatashi grins slightly. "Tanith."

Azuth sits down at the booth in the far corner.

At your table, Simon says "Long time, no see Lord Stryl. How's the House?"

Hugh walks over to Azuth. "Can i speak with you."

Tanith wanders towards Constantine's table. "Busy?"

At your table, Kragalldwir smiles. "Seems to still be running, last I was there. Collin makes a remarkable demon, for a human."

At your table, Simon swirls the ice in his glass, and sips.
At your table, Simon smiles and nods at Krag.

Azuth nods at Hugh and indicates the seat opposite him.

Simon leans back in his chair, and looks around the room.

Constantine grins. "Not at all."

At your table, Yatashi studies Kragalldwir thoughtfully. "I am, as I have said, Yatashi, and you may or may not have heard of me, for my name is known but not known as widely as yours, nor my features."

Hugh sits down at the booth in the far corner.

Moire glances over at Kirren and smiles slightly, then settles her gaze back at her table.

At your table, Kragalldwir looks at Yatashi, somewhat appraisingly. "I see."

Tanith takes the seat next to Constantine. "I'm *almost* done. I thought I'd get lunch."
Tanith sits down at the large round table near the far wall.
[Tanith sits down and joins you.]

Simon listens quietly to talk at his table, sipping occasionally.

Tanith glances curiously over at Azuth and Hugh.

Constantine pours Tanith a cup of coffee. "I'm glad you stopped by. Order a double portion, maybe?"

At your table, Yatashi says quietly, "You will understand that this is awkward for me, as I prefer to deal with those I know well ... as I suspect you might. But I have a proposal to offer to you."

Moire orders a fresh cup of ginseng tea. Astrid hands it to Velma, who takes it to the booth on the far wall and sets it before her.

At your table, Kragalldwir raises an eyeridge. "Indeed. Go on."

Kragalldwir orders a hemlock, with a twist of perchlorate. Astrid hands it to Velma, who takes it to the large round table near the far wall and sets it before it.

Tanith orders a small pizza, with extra cheese and pepperoni, and a glass of diet Coke. Astrid hands it to Romeo, who takes it to the large round table near the far wall and sets it before her.
Tanith grins thanks to Romeo, and takes a piece of pizza.

Constantine nods to Jerrald.

Jerrald winks at Constantine and takes a seat at the bar.

At your table, Yatashi murmurs, "My father is unusual, in that he is not truly a person but a place ... Constantine would call him a Shadow, although there are other names for such things, I believe. This is not a thing I take pride in, per se, but it is part of the explanation I must give.

Jerrald sits down at the long mahogany bar.

At your table, Simon cradles his glass between his palms, and watches Yatashi curiously.

At your table, Kragalldwir listens, drinking his slightly steaming brew slowly.

At your table, Tanith pauses in eating. "Isn't he a big oogy thing? I think I met him once."

Constantine considers the pizza.

At your table, Yatashi says "For, you understand, he is everything that I abhor, both in myself and in the world around. His darknesses are the darknesses within me, and there are sights inside him that would drive many a being mad ... not such as yourself, of course, but there are weaker beings among the Shadows."

Usagi explains to Constantine "It's a pizza!"

Tanith catches some strands of cheese and folds them back on top of her slice.

Kirren has reconnected.

At your table, Yatashi interrupts himself briefly to smile at Tanith. "I believe you may have, yes. It was a ... rare circumstance."

Hugh says "I haven't had pizza in ages."

At your table, Kragalldwir shifts in his chair, somewhat impatiently.

At your table, Tanith says "I *never* *ever* want him to take me anywhere again. That was really awful."

Ethan eyes the Pizza suspiciously, then looks back to Usagi.

Kirren shoots her system. 8-P

Hugh says "So Kirren, when do you want to catch the movie."

At your table, Simon squints at Tanith's pizza momentarily.

At your table, Constantine nods to Tanith. "Like where Father Brown sent me. Unpleasant."

Jerrald orders a bottle of Killian's Red. Astrid pushes it across the bar and it slides to a stop in front of him.

Kirren says "Oh, whenever..."

Constantine says "May I have a slice?"

Simon waves to Romeo, and gestures at Tanith's pizza. Romeo brings a matching one to Simon's table and sets it before him.

Tanith nods around hers.

Constantine picks one up, and eats.

At your table, Yatashi turns back to Kragalldwir. "He is not his own being, either, you must understand. He was created by one of Chaos, a long time agone." He frowns. "I have made intent and contract to suborn him, and bind his will to mine ... for he cannot be destroyed, else myself and Tiffany and all of our lesser-known kin will die. But this is the core of my problem ... there are those in Chaos who are known for avarice and deception, who have had an interest in him once and will again. I believe ..." He hesitates, and says lightly, "I believe you have encountered the type."

At your table, Simon takes another sip of amaretto before scooping up a slice of pizza.

At your table, Kragalldwir merely responds with a shrug.

At your table, Tanith blinks at Yatashi. "How much danger are you and Tiffany in?"

Kathrine steps out of the darkness of one of the bar's corners.

Usagi says "Hi Kat."

Jerrald waves to Kathrine.

Kathrine waves

Hugh says "Hiya, Kat."

Kathrine sits down at the long mahogany bar.

Anthos steps out from a shadowy corner, near the mirror.

Simon pushes his amaretto away and waves Romeo over again. After a brief conversation, Romeo brings him a bottle of Beck's Dark.

Anthos sits down at the rafters.

Kirren finishes up her drink, and looks at Hugh, "Anytime is fine for the movie, but I've a few things to attend to just now. Call me?"

Simon swigs Beck's as he munches on his pizza.

Hugh nods "i will do that."

At your table, Yatashi says quietly, "It is for this reason that I have approached you. I do not ask of you that you aid me in this war, for that I know you not nearly so well ... but suppose that I should win it, and my father and his ilk pass into my hands." He frowns quietly. "I will have a world," he says quietly, "That shifts and silks its place in Shadow, and I will have an army of my kin. Yet I am beginning to understand that even then I am not safe, I cannot be free from those who would claim me as my father did ... because Chaos is a dangerous thing, and it would know too much of me."

Anthos orders a mug of steaming milk. Astrid hands it to Velma, who takes it to the rafters and sets it before it.

Moire glances up at Kirren. "Leaving?"

Kirren grins and then nods to Moire, 'Tine and Simon.

At your table, Kragalldwir hmms, thoughtfully.

Kirren says "Yes, there some things around the house I must attend to."

Hugh says "see ya later Kirren."

At your table, Kragalldwir shrugs. "So what's an army to Chaos? Chaos has many armies."

Simon glances at Kirren's departure, then back at his bottle.

Moire smiles to Kirren. "We should talk some time Kirren."

Tanith tucks a foot up onto her chair with her.

At your table, Yatashi says, "I ask you for an alliance, Lord Stryl. There are things I can bring you, and gifts you could give me ... but most of all, I approach you because you know what it is to be betrayed by Chaos, and would hold no liking for those who might betray me, and would not do so yourself if we made a pact."

Karl_Murtack steps out from a shadowy corner, near the mirror.

Usagi waves to Karl.

Kirren arches an eyebrow, "Anytime you have free, Moire. I know how valuable your time is."

Karl_Murtack says "Hi."

Ethan tips his hat to Karl.

Moire laughs softly. "Yes, quite so. Some time when I need a diversion then, Kirren."

Karl_Murtack sits down at the small round table near the door.

Simon eats pizza and drinks Beck's quietly.

Constantine takes another bite of pizza, watching Yatashi thoughtfully.

Anthos laps milk from its mug

Tanith eats all but the crust of her piece.

Kathrine walks around the corner of the room, but doesn't return.

Constantine picks off a pepperoni, and eats it, following it with some coffee.

Kirren smiles wryly at Moire, "Bleys wasn't diverting enough? Too bad. Excuse me."

Constantine glances at Azuth.

Kirren stares at a card in her hand.
Kirren vanishes in a rainbow sparkle.

Simon notes Constantine's glance and follows it.

Azuth seems to be having a 'discussion' with Hugh.

Moire looks after Kirren's departure with a slight grin.

Tanith considers, and takes another slice.

Usagi says "Can I have one too, Tanith?"

Tanith nods to Usagi and holds the pizza over for her.

Ethan walks to the door, tipping his hat to all, and smiling to Usagi, and Karl.

Yatashi continues to study Kragalldwir, with a look at the shadowed edge of being open.

Anthos steps into the shadows and slowly fades away. Or that's your impression, at least.

Usagi takes the slice, eats it starting from the tip of the wedge.

Ethan wanders out, departing to Dworkin knows where.

Hugh continues to talk with Azuth.

Simon finishes his third slice, and leans back in his chair, resting his bottle on one leg.

At your table, Tanith says, "Are you and Tiff in a lot of danger right now, Yatashi?" She takes another bite.

Jerrald leans back against the bar and lights up a Marlboro.

Azuth doesn't notice people looking at him.

Constantine finishes his pizza, including crust.

Chance steps out from a shadowy corner, near the mirror.
Chance has arrived.
Chance waves.

Jerrald nods to Chance.

Simon looks over at Chance and nods a little.

Tanith nods a bit to Chance.

Simon goes back to listening at his table, sipping Beck's Dark.

Constantine says "Hey, Chance."

Chance climbs up into the rafters.

Hugh says "hiya, Chance."

Usagi says "Mind if I sit with you, Tanith?"

Anthos steps out from a shadowy corner, near the mirror.

Moire steps into the shadows and slowly fades away. Or that's your impression, at least.

Anthos sits down at the booth in the near corner.

Tanith says "Um, it's really up to Yatashi, I think, Usagi."

Chance arranges her skirt neatly, leans against a supporting beam and hums quietly to herself.

Simon glances up at Chance, then back to his table.

Karl_Murtack wanders out, departing to Dworkin knows where.

Anthos orders a mug of Bloody Cow. Astrid hands it to Velma, who takes it to the booth in the near corner and sets it before it.

Usagi says "Oh, is it okay, Yatashi?"

Hugh says "You are in a good mood today, Chance."

At your table, Yatashi finally leans slightly back, and sighs. "An army means little to Chaos, yes. As do worlds." He shrugs. "It is a meager coin, but I know no better. Except perhaps that Tanith here would be miffed if myself and Tiffany were to be taken and die, and you would no doubt never forgive yourself." He grins.
At your table, Yatashi says "And, speaking of which, I am yet to answer her question."

Chance says "Am I, Hugh?"

Tanith rattles the ice in her glass.

At your table, Kragalldwir says "Hmm."

Chance orders a glass of Old Chaos Rot. Astrid pushes it across the bar and it slides to a stop in front of her.

At your table, Tanith says "Well, *yah* that'd be awful. And even though he's your dad you shouldn't be forced to do things you don't want to."

Anthos nods towards Chance

Hugh says "Sorry, you just seemed to be in a better mood then you were the other day."

At your table, Kragalldwir leans forward in his chair, somewhat, his wings unflexing behind him, and shifting to a new position. "So you're saying that, if you win, you want a treaty."

At your table, Constantine says "Mmm. I'd be upset myself."

Chance smiles and nods at the panther.

Anthos sips its Bloody Cow

At your table, Yatashi turns to Tanith. "Yes, there is danger; a chasm opens before the both of us, and it is not too wide to jump but if I miss we will fall forever. It is ... a cause for great caution in my life, and greater worry; I have not slept in a hundred nights and I thank all deities that I can function without it."

At your table, Simon squints curiously at Yatashi, but doesn't say anything.

Chance alternately hums and sips her drink.

At your table, Tanith says "Yike. Well, you already know I want to help."

At your table, Kragalldwir glances curiously at the fellow Lords at the table, his expression inviting discussion.

Usagi tells Tanith "Looks like Yatashi's asleep...."

At your table, Yatashi turns back to Kragalldwir. "In sum, yes. That should Stryl face danger, I will come to its aid as I can, and the other way as well."

Tanith shakes her head at Usagi.

Karl_Murtack walks in from a small room of some kind.

At your table, Constantine says "You know I will help."

Yatashi glances over at Usagi. "Pardon? Have I missed a question?"

Chance nods to Karl.

Anthos sips its Bloody Cow

Usagi says "No, I wanted to sit with Tanith, she said it's your table...."

Karl_Murtack nods to Chance.

Tanith says to Usagi, "He's busy... and I'm just eating lunch then back to the grind."

At your table, Yatashi smiles to Tanith, still twisted so his body faces Usagi. "You are welcome to assist me in this, Tanith." He smiles. "Presumably in my command, as your services as a warrior, while valuable, are perhaps not worth the risk of your death?"

Usagi says "Ah..."

Usagi orders a separate slice of pizza, then. Astrid pushes it across the bar and it slides to a stop in front of her.

Yatashi nods to Usagi. "Perhaps when I finish up certain business."

Constantine shifts in his chair, slightly.

Usagi says "Naah, never mind."
Usagi sits down at the long mahogany bar.

Yatashi turns back to the table.

At your table, Tanith tilts her head. "'kay. I could ask Fay, if you like, although she might not want to what with the kids."

Karl_Murtack sits down at the long mahogany bar.

Anthos basks in the attention

Simon sips Beck's, watching the people at his table.

At your table, Tanith adds, "And Michael and Rebecca."

Chance grins at the panther.
Chance sits down at the rafters.

At your table, Kragalldwir considers, clawed thumb and forefinger against scaled chin. "Come to me when you've won your war. When you've proven yourself, then perhaps you may be more worthy than those in Chaos who created you."

At your table, Yatashi grins. "Oh, my. I would not wish to send them in alone ... there are places where such powers as theirs would fail ... but elsewhere, elsewhere, ah. I think they would be useful."

At your table, Constantine says "Hypatia and Tane'?"

Anthos form wavers slightly as a small ripple passes through it.

At your table, Tanith nods.

Anthos looks perplexed.

At your table, Yatashi considers that. "Well enough," he says, his face briefly betraying worlds full of stress before mastering itself.

At your table, Constantine says, quietly, "I wish I could give you more resources, Yatashi."

Hugh smirks.

Christoph steps out from a shadowy corner, near the mirror.

Anthos grunts and returns to its Bloody Cow

Christoph glances around.

Yatashi nods to Constantine. "I understand."

Chance waves to Christoph.

Christoph smiles broadly to Chance.

At your table, Yatashi nods quietly to Kragalldwir. "I will look you up then."
