He is very condescending to almost everyone he talks to, though never flat out disrespectful. He seam to know everything or he at least likes to think that he does.

He prefers distance using knives and other tools to attack from a safe distance.

Tall and pale. He normal garb is a black trench coat as well as a black fedora. As a vampire his canine teeth are very much pronounced. His other teeth appear normal but if he becomes enraged they begin to lengthen and come to a point. A sure sign that you will soon be hitting a wall. He is tall reaching 6'6 at his fully drawn height. His weight is only 160 lbs so he is very light and mobile.

History:

Stelian woke up one day with no memories only his name and a feeling of immense power. 'What happened I've never had a headache like this before.' He rubbed his head as he looked out the window the sun almost blinding him lessening the power he felt. 'What the hell?' Suddenly he felt eyes in the back of his head. Spinning around "Who are you and what do you want with me?!" A cold response came from a tall cloaked figure "You are the product of thousands of years of research. The council has destined you for greatness." With that the figure left leaving a coat and a hat laying on the bed. Since that day Stelian has worked to find this council and what they had done to him. He has since learned that his is a vampire more specifically a day walker. The first and only. Though he still wasn't immune to the affects of the sun the affects are nowhere close to deadly. He traveled to this facility to hopefully find peace and family though so far he has been disappointed by the creatures that have come to the house.

So begins...

Stelian's Story

"Don't worry Ayla, I have no intention of causing permanent harm to your friend." After a moment's pause to make sure Magiere was ready Stelian launched his attack. Using his superior speed he threw a rope dart in her direction expecting her do dodge it. As she rolled he launched another into the wall behind her flicking the wire it was attached to making it wrap around the hilt of her saber. He pulls the wire jerking the saber out of her hand and into his. He waved it around getting the feel of the weapon. "A good blade I can see why you use it in your off hand." He smiles and prepares for the coming attack.

(OOC: Working with Lax during these posts and he is working with me any character control is done with permission.)

A dart came flying towards Magiere, she rolls to the left dodging, a second dart flies over her head and before she can react a wire wraps around her saber and it flies into Stelian's hand. "Shit" she mumbled under her breath as she recovered. "A good blade, I can see why you use it in your off hand." he declares, getting the feel for it. Ayla stops attacking the dummies and turns to watch the fight, instinctively knowing that Magiere is already on the defensive, she begins to growl but stays where she is determined not to interfere. "It's a good thing I know how to fight with one" she retaliates. She steps toward him closing the distance so that he wouldn't have the long range advantage, hoping her superior swordsmanship will make up for his increased speed. At first she attempts to quick and fluid attacks where her precise movements allow her to sneak through an opponents defenses but his speed affords him the ability to parry each of her attacks He's not even attacking, just defending, what is this? she contemplates as she attacks. The sound of metal on metal reverberates through the room for ten minutes as the two battle. I need a new strategy. She takes a half step back and grips her sword in both hands and makes a powerful strike down towards him attempting to power through his defenses. She doesn't realize she has left herself open to a quick strike.

Stelian smiles Magiere's reply. She closes the distance and begins attacking him with the fluid motions of a master swordsman. 'It's a good thing I'm faster than her or she'd gut me.' For ten minutes Stelian held his own blocking every attack that Magiere made making none himself. 'I'd leave myself open if I attacked I'm nowhere near the swordsman she is. I'd get gutted in an instant. Suddenly she changed her attack style she went from fluid movements to drawing for an overhanded two hand smash. 'She left herself open. Time to end this. As her sword begins to fall Stelian dodges to the side kicking one of her feet out from under her throwing her off balance. Before she can correct herself he pushes her over pulling the falchion out of her hand as she fell. Leveling the two swords at her on the ground for an instant then placing both blades in one hand helping her up with the other. "A good fight though you need to be more patient wait for your opponent to give you an opening don't make one for them." He smiles as she stands handing her blades back to her. He walks over to the bench picking his hat back up and putting it on sitting where it was.

He motions for her to join him and after a moments hesitation and sheathing her swords she sits. "For one so young your mastery of the blade is unmatched. If I hadn't been so much faster you'd have gutted me in an instant." He smiles hopping she'd open up and accept the compliment. After a while he decided to ask. "So, tell me. What is your story? How did you get noticed enough to be sentenced here?"

She fell to the ground, Stelian's attack interrupted her own Dammit, I got impatient again . He helps her up offering her his hand, which she graciously accepts "A good fight though you need to be more patient wait for your opponent to give you an opening don't make one for them" He smiles at her handing her swords back to her. He walks over to the bench and replaces his hat on his head before sitting and motioning for her to join him. She thinks for a moment glancing at Ayla who was still nervous "Relax, I'm fine" she said and Ayla instantly calmed. She sheaths her sword and replaces her falchion on her hip. She sits down next to him. "For one so young your master of the blade is unmatched. If I hadn't been so much faster you'd have gutted me in an instant" He said to her with a smile. "Well thank you, I have worked hard to be the best, most vampires are from an older time and it's easier to kill them if you can beat them with a sword." She said with a smile. Just then Ayla walked over and sat at Magiere's feet. "So, tell me. What is your story? How did you get noticed enough to be sentenced here?" He asks her a little intrusively. Magiere reached down and began to pet Ayla's fur. "Well, I was simply minding my own business, hunting and killing every vampire I could find, when the government found me, turns out that even though aren't fond of vampires, they don't like it when someone kills so many of them, makes the public think the problem is bigger than they want them to know. How about you?" she asked him hoping for a reply, but before she could get one Ayla jumped to attention and began to bark, then the entire facility began to shake, it felt as if a bomb had exploded not far from here. "What was that?" Magiere said she knew that there was war across the sea but she hadn't heard anything about fighting nearby.

"Well, I was simply minding my own business, hunting and killing every vampire I could find, when the government found me, turns out that even though aren't fond of vampires, they don't like it when someone kills so many of them, makes the public think the problem is bigger than they want them to know. How about you?" Before Stelian could offer an answer a deep rattle shakes the facility. "I think we should head to the main hall I have a feeling something big is happening." Stelian quickly darts around the room collecting all of his knives and other utensils. Once he finishes he holds his hand out to help Magiere up again. "I'll tell my story as we walk." They begin walking to the main entry hall after a few steps Stelian begins. "I was an experiment by the Vampire Council. I woke one day still human bound to a table with multiple creatures standing around me. After a moment I was able to understand what they were saying. I was to be the first of many. The strongest vampire ever born i would be the beginning of the vampire's escalation. The next time I awoke I was different. I'd awoken as a vampire. I was instantly subjected tests and tortures that would kill any normal vampire. Through my howls I was able to hear them say that they would begin giving the improved venom to the other humans they had captured... That night I broke my bonds. I escaped and took the venom with me and destroyed all of their research. I have been killing vampires for over 100 years. The council constantly sent tracking units after me. I killed every one of them. Drank all of their blood and learned everything that they knew. I know where the council is and I know how to destroy them." A subtle fire was burning in Stelian's eyes. "I was approached by the government and offered their protection by moving to this "Facility X" I had nothing better to do and a little rest was welcome. Plus I believed that I would be able to find some allies to help me in my quest to end the council." He stops in the hallway looking into Magiere's eyes. "I know you will deny this offer but, I still have the improved venom. If you wished I have enough to make you a full Day-walker. I offer only because I feel I can trust you and that you would be a worthy ally in my quest."

"I think we should head to the main hall I have a feeling something big is happening." Stelian ran around the room picking up his things before offering to help Magiere up. She takes his hand and stands. She looks down to Ayla who had begun to snarl but she instantly stopped. "I'll tell my story as we walk." Stelian begins his story as they walk towards the main hall. Ayla walks in between Stelian and Magiere almost as if to separate them. "I was an experiment by the Vampire Council. I woke one day still human bound to a table with multiple creatures standing around me. After a moment I was able to understand what they were saying. I was to be the first of many. The strongest vampire ever born i would be the beginning of the vampire's escalation. The next time I awoke I was different. I'd awoken as a vampire. I was instantly subjected tests and tortures that would kill any normal vampire. Through my howls I was able to hear them say that they would begin giving the improved venom to the other humans they had captured... Magiere couldn't contain a gasp, she thought she hated her curse, but his was just as bad. He's not a bad guy, I can trust him. "That night I broke my bonds. I escaped and took the venom with me and destroyed all of their research. I have been killing vampires for over 100 years. The council constantly sent tracking units after me. I killed every one of them. Drank all of their blood and learned everything that they knew. I know where the council is and I know how to destroy them. I was approached by the government and offered their protection by moving to this "Facility X" I had nothing better to do and a little rest was welcome. Plus I believed that I would be able to find some allies to help me in my quest to end the council." 100 years, he must've killed nearly as many vampires as I have. Stelian looks into Magiere's eyes, his own filled with determination "I know you will deny this offer but, I still have the improved venom. If you wished I have enough to make you a full Day-walker. I offer only because I feel I can trust you and that you would be a worthy ally in my quest." She hesitates for a minute, His offer would strengthen me, but at the cost of all I hold dear, I have to deny, plus I don't need that, some blood and I'm good she thinks considering his offer. "You were right, I'll have to pass. I'm strong enough to kill any vampire I need to. And if you help me to find my father, I will help you with the council." She says her voice filled with confidence. She looks at Stelian I never noticed just how handsome he is as she thinks she can't help but a let a smile escape her lips, as soon as she smiles Ayla notices and changes to stand on Ayla's other side, allowing Stelian to walk next Magiere.

As Ayla moves Stelian steps slightly closer to Magiere. "I understand. As to helping you with your father I have only one price for that. You have to tell me your story. What happened how did you get here. I have to understand you. Because as much as you hate it your father is part of who you are he will be reflected in who you are. Not that you will be like him the opposite is much more likely. But I have to learn about him so that I can begin thinking of where he would be. I know the location of many vampires and as much as I dislike them not all of them are bad. Many were forced into this like I was they need not come to harm." He steps off continuing through the halls towards their destination. 'Maybe this one is different. She denied power for her morals. She may be even stronger than I am in that sense. Maybe I can really trust this one.' A smile shows on Stelian's face as they walk the first true smile he has had in many years.

Magiere sees Stelian smile, not a smirk, not a grin, but a genuine smile. She pauses for a minute and then tells him about her father "As I'm sure you have gathered, my father was vampire. He and my mother fell in love, and eventually married. Upon discovering that my mother was pregnant he left, never to return. My mother died giving birth, and I was left with my aunt. On my 14th birthday my aunt gave me a package containing my falchion, and my armor. She said my father left it for me, though I don't know why. When I turned 16 I left, I've been hunting vampires ever since. Hoping to find my father so I can kill him too." She paused to breathe not realizing how angry she had become as she related the events of her life. "I was cursed with this horrible existence, half human, half monster, I can't stand to think that anyone else might be, that is why I do what I do." She finishes speaking just as they arrive at the main hall. "Weird I don't see anyone, but I could have sworn something just shook the whole facility."

After hearing Magiere's story Stelian pauses. "Well something did shake the facility and the others will be coming eventually we just have to wait." He takes a seat at the bar and orders a coffee. "We may as well sit here and wait for them to arrive." He looks off into the distance thinking and after a few minutes. "Our two quests may very well be one and the same. I believe that we will be able to find your father with the council. He is one of their members the second or third in command." A few moments later. "And not all vampires are monsters. You may think us to be but many have chosen to go into hiding and not pass on the virus to the humans. I just ask that you keep this in mind." After this Stelian falls silent waiting and listening to the sounds of the facility waiting for the inevitable meeting. For the time he enjoys his coffee and his company.

Stelian asked Magiere to be aware that most vampires don't want their life, or curse, but she was unaffected "I'm sorry but so long as they are capable of infecting, they are capable of spreading the curse, no one deserves what I lived through, what you lived through. All who are capable of passing the virus on, if I cannot be convinced of their self control then they are a threat. I hate to be so black and white but it's a life I wouldn't wish on anyone." she pauses a minute feeling bad for ruining their enjoyable time. "But enough about that, let's just focus on figuring out how we are going to destroy the council, do you know where they are? Do you know who they all are?" she asked him hoping he had an answer. Just then the entire facility shook even more violently than before, the explosion they heard was significantly louder as well, Magiere was surprised no windows had broken. She turned to the barkeep and ordered a coffee, she was gonna need the caffeine. Magiere reached her hand down and began to pet Ayla but she found that she wasn't at her feet. Magiere looked around and found Ayla with her fur standing on edge her face contorted in a violent snarl. There was no enemy nearby, Magiere rushed over to Ayla "What's wrong there is no one here!" she screamed hoping to calm the usually composed wolf down. Eventually Ayla relaxes and Magiere returns to Stelian with Ayla following in step.

Stelian looked up as another entered the Lobby. The woman was clearly a vampire. Her aged choice of clothing demonstrated that well enough. Looking at his partner he says. "Well Magiere it seems that there is another vampire coming to join us. I do wonder what her ideas will be... No doubt we will run into her in the training room at some point. Unless you believe we should go introduce ourselves." He smiles waiting for Magiere's reply noticing that Alya is sitting at attention obviously detecting their new room mate.

Stelian smiled at her before speaking "Well Magiere it seems that there is another vampire coming to join us. I do wonder what her ideas will be... No doubt we will run into her in the training room at some point. Unless you believe we should go introduce ourselves." he said his voice relaxed. Magiere glanced down at Ayla giving her a look that the wolf instinctively knew meant to be calm but cautious. "Let us go introduce ourselves, The others aren't here yet and the bombing seems to have stopped, temporarily at least" she said as she stood and walked over to the knew Kalin and the woman. "Hello Kalin, how are you? Not being nosy are you?" She said smiling at the child. Before turning to the new vampire. "I am Magiere, and this is Ayla" she said motioning to the wolf. "And this devilishly handsome man is Stelian." As I am sure you can tell, He is a vampire, my origins are a bit harder to decipher but I am a dhampir, you are obviously also a vampire" Ayla and I could recognize that scent anywhere. she thought. Ayla began to snarl again and Magiere shot her a dirty look "Relax, there is no threat here!" She snapped at her companion. She smiled back at Kalin and the new vampire awaiting a reply, and hoping that Stelian would not be offended that she had introduced him.

Deidre looked at Magiere and her wolf, "Greetings, my name is Deidre and you would be accurate in your deduction." she smiled flashing her sharp pointed teeth. "A dhampir, my I haven't seen one in ages! and your friend...Stelian? He's not a normal vampire is he?" his scent was slightly different than most male vampires. Waiting for the dhampir to respond, Deidre looked down at the wolf and held out a hand so that the dog would know she wasn't a threat. Deidre was extremely happy to have found other vampires that seemed to friendly.

Stelian smiled as Magiere introduced him. As Deidre introduced herself Stealian had to hold back a bit of surprise. She could tell that he wasn't a true vampire. The fact that she could tell that only made him smile more. 'The creatures gathering here are certainly more powerful than most. Most vampires wouldn't be able to detect the different scent.' As she introduced herself to Alya Stelian decided to tell her. Once Alya had gotten used to her scent he bowed to her. "As my friend said I am Stelian. And you were quite correct in your statement. I am not a normal vampire. I'm what I have decided to call a Daywalker. I am very pleased to meet you." He stood and smiled again trying to gauge her reaction to what he had told her.

Deidre nodded a good bye to the young demon. Then turned her attention back to the dhampir and the daywalker, "My what a rare mix you are sir. However did you come to be?" she asked honestly interested. She had met some interesting people on her travels but never a day walking vampire, that definitely explained the difference in his scent. Deidre also noticed the fact that everyone she had met so far had been in pairs, Kalin with Shard and Stelian with Magiere. 'Does everyone travel in two's here?' she thought to herself.

Stelian smiled as the young demon left returning his attention the Deidre. "I mean no disrespect, but the tale of how I came to be is a sad one best left for another time. While I wish that we could indulge you with warmer welcomes but I believe that the others are on their way. Something is happening in the outside world and I don't think we will be spared from it. You are welcome to join Magiere and I at the bar while we wait for the others." He motions to the table they had left to welcome her. He tilts his head to hear the wounds of the facility better. "Though I believe that they will be arriving shortly." He looks at Magiere trying to see what she thinks of their new friend. 'I do hope Magiere won't attempt to kill her. Having another vampire here will make this stay much more enjoyable.'

As Deidre bent down and held her hand out to Ayla she simply stood there looking at it, she didn't respond, Magiere shot her a dirty look and Ayla quickly knew that she was to be friendly with their new companion. She licked the vampires fingers and allowed her to pet her. Magiere listened to Stelian invite Deidre to sit with them, "Yes please do join us, I hear the others on their way then we can finally get some answers. She smiled, "It would seem Ayla is warming up to you quickly, she doesn't typically like Vampires, but that's a story for another time." she said leading the way back to their table.

Firvin blushed as Riley told him she loved him, she then gave him the single most passionate kiss Firvin had ever received, not that he had received many. He was silent as she spoke after their kiss. "I love you too Riley. And there will plenty of time to spend our lives together after the war, for now we must be strong for the others. WE will go tell them what is happening together." He said as he grabbed her hand and the walked with her to the lobby. As they walked he spoke calmly "I must confess, if this place remains the prison that it is, after the war, I can't stay here. I need to be near the forest, it's who I am. I love you and want to be with you, but I cannot live locked up when I have committed no crime." He sighed "This could be a wonderful place for people like us to escape persecution, but it needs to be a freely chosen home, a place where we can come and go at our liesure, together we can make this a paradise for all those humans see as different, it can be wonderful, but only if we remove those terrible walls locking us in." He smiled at her "You know, even with all that is going on you're beautiful, your beauty alone makes this place worth it for me." he said to her as they arrived in the lobby.

"Thank you, maybe while we wait one of you could give a short version of one of these long stories everyone seems to have." Deidre smiled warmly, petting Ayla one more time before standing. "She's a lovely," she complimented, following the duo to their table. The lobby was quite impressive, with all it had to offer certainly thing's that Deidre hadn't gotten to enjoy in many years. Even with what was happening outside this place, it seemed to maintain a form of calming energy.

Stelian sat back at the table with Magiere and Deidre. "Short version of my story. I was an experiment by the vampire council. I was to be the first of many Daywalkers, but I escaped with all of their information and the last of the venom used to make Daywalkers after killing those responsible for having made it. That is how I came to be." He watched Deidre closely to see her reaction. 'Not many Vampires like kin killers... He resumed drinking his coffee waiting to hear how Magiere would condense her story and wondering what Deidre's was.

Magiere listened quietly as Stelian was so open about his past with Deidre. After he finished speaking Magiere reached down and pet Ayla. She then took a deep breath. "My mother fell in love with a vampire, but the asshole left when he found she was pregnant, leaving only this armor and this sword", she holds up her Falchion completely ignoring the saber. "Because I was only half human the pregnancy was tough on my mother, she died in childbirth and I was raised by her sister. Since I have been old enough I have been hunting, and training. Looking for my father so that I might take his life, as he took my mothers." Magiere paused for a minute staring off into space before continuing. "Then the good old government came along. Apparently even though the public doesn't like vampires, the government doesn't like people killing them either. And I guess it was an even bigger problem when the one killing them was half vampire herself. After finally catching up to me they sent me here." Magiere quickly realized that telling a vampire that she used to kill vampires for a living might have been a bad idea. She studied Deidre's face attempting to discern if she was offended or threatened by Magiere's comments. Finally Magiere decided it would be a good idea to explain herself, "Don't worry, even though I used to hunt vampire's for a living, I have ultimately decided that all I really crave is my father's death, so I don't feel the need to kill every vampire I run into anymore, and I certainly will not try to harm you." Magiere looked at Ayla who could tell that she was lying, Magiere gave her a look, a look she had only ever given Ayla once before, but the wolf knew exactly what it meant, "Don't give me away, even though we both hate vampires, these two might be able to help us." Although the exact meaning was a little different both times Ayla was able to get the message without Magiere needing to say anything in front of Stelian or Deidre.

Deidre looked from one to another, both have a habit of killing vampires. "I see well most vampires can act like monsters and just like animals if they go mad and try hurt everything living they need to be put down. I've done my fair share of putting such creatures out of their misery." She took her seat, keeping her posture straight. "Once you start to abuse the abilities given to you, it should be taken away." In a way Deidre felt almost ashamed for how most of her kind treated people, that's why she had always tried to keep to herself instead of living with a group of her own kind. "As for my story I was turned by a man who wanted to create an army of vampires, specifically a women army. The poor fool didn't know that trying to control an army of young vampire females is an impossible feat." she looked at both of them again her face sincere, "It looks like we have a group of rogue vampires, doesn't it?". Deidre hoped that they believed her story, since this had been the first time in years she had tried to make friends with people who were almost her own species. Knowing both had been hurt by full vampires made her extremely self-conscious of her actions, the last thing she wanted was to offend anyone.

Stelian watched their new friend closely as she told her story. He wasn't able to detect any dishonesty from her. As she finished he laughed. "Rouge Vampires? That sounds about like us. Eh Magiere?" He chuckled again and ordered another coffee. "I tell you the rest of the gang sure takes a long time to gather up. We just got another new arrival. Usually they come running to join the welcome wagon. So Magiere do you feel like sharing your story as well? We rogue vampires must stick together." He laughs again and begins sipping his coffee slowly waiting to see how she would react to his slight taunting.

Finally, after much coaxing, kisses, hugs, and reassurances that Sierra would be ok, Silas managed to get her to come with him out into the lobby. WHen they finally got there, Silas was shocked at what he saw. Firvin had, apparently, just arrived in the main lobby. Further, he was... HOLDING HANDS WITH RILEY? 'Whoa...' Silas thought. 'Is everyone pairing up?' He was shocked. He thought the pair of them liked each other, he never expected it to have happened so suddenly. There were a few new faces, but Magiere was there, Stelian too, Ouka the white wolf, Timber, Shard, and Kalin were all there as well. SIlas looked around, slightly confused. The mood in the air was strange, like everyone was on edge. Then Firvin spoke, still holding hands with Riley. He was so confident, so poised, so ready to do what needed to be done. Silas was shocked. To see the normally jokester Firvin take on such a dramatic personality change, what could have sparked it? Glancing between him and Riley, Silas put two and two together. Riley was going because she owed the government and Firvin would go to protect her.

Silas was terrified, literally shaking in his boots. War? With real people? It was so different from the practice dummies in the Witch's spell room. Silas didn't know what to do. On one hand, how could he stand by and let others fight to defend him with their lives on the line and do nothing. He couldn't, he'd have to fight. But then again, how could he snuff out another person's life? How could he possibly kill someone? Silas was so distraught, he felt like he was being pulled apart. He felt the need to protect his friends, but could he end another's life to do so? He sidled closer to Sierra. "I don't like this." He said quietly, squeezing her hand. Finally, after a few more encouraging and empowering words, Firvin finished his speech. Silas was impressed. Despite his own reservations, he couldn't help but respect Firvin's confidence and preparedness. Silas was enamored with him, the way he stood tall, the way he called for action. It was breathtaking to scared little Silas. Was Firvin such a presence this whole time?

At that, a line formed, most everybody was agreeing to help. Silas shrunk back. He couldn't, how could he? The only one who had ever hurt anyone was Bane. Silas wouldn't hurt a fly. Bane was always the one pushing Silas, he was even doing it now, raging against Silas's barriers, trying to make him fight. Silas swallowed hard, sweat was beginning to form on his face. Bane was raging against him, fighting for dominance with every fiber of his being. Silas held him back with sheer force of will alone. 'Go away Bane. I won't let you hurt people.' Silas yelled at Bane, scolding him in their mind. 'Come on you wuss, those people are evil, they're attacking your home Silas, your HOME. Doesn't that mean anything to you?' Silas couldn't think of anything to say. Bane was right, but a life was still a life. Who was he to decide who should live and who should die? That was when he heard Sierra speak up.

"I will fight to protect my brothers and sisters, I will speak to my lord and ask him for help. The humans have got themselves into a mess... again. I suppose they should learn who really are the more powerful race." Silas felt his heart shatter. How could he stay home while his Sierra, his darling, sweet Sierra went off to war. What would he do, stay home? Watch the Facility till they got back? How could he possibly be content staying home while everyone he loved fought to protect each other. Silas felt his hand squeeze around his wand, whose tip shimmered for a moment in response to Silas's fighting spirit. Silas walked up to Firvin, his hand clecnhed tight around the handle of his wand. "I-I'll go too. I have to protect you. Besides, if Bane gives us that much trouble, imagine how much he'll give to our enemies." Silas said, fumbling at first, then slowly gaining confidence as he spoke.

As the members of the Facility stood and confirmed their agreement to join in the fight Riely looked up at Firvin and nodded. "Very well then. If everyone will take a seat at the main table I will begin the briefing." Once everyone had sat down Riely took her position at the head of the table. Taking a deep breath she steadied herself for what she was about to say. "We have been given three different missions each one playing into different strengths of our members." After another breath and an encouraging look from Firvin she continued. "The first mission focuses on stealth in Tokyo, Japan. This task would be best suited to our spell casters. The mission is to capture a High Value Target hiding somewhere within the city. No other information is given other than the target's name and this photo. I will be going with this group. Any who wish to follow with me wait here at the end of the meeting." She looked around trying to gauge the reaction of everyone.

"The second mission is best suited for our weres. It is an ambush in the deep forest of Brazil. It give a location and a description of the targets. After the ambush you are to search the area and destroy any remaining forces. Those interested in this mission will be meeting in the dining hall after the meeting. Timber I hope you can take the charge of this one." Again looking to gauge the reactions she took another deep breath and continued.

"The third mission is best suited for the Vampires or other night based creatures. It is a search and destroy/capture mission in an elaborate tunnel system under Central China. The mission is to clear the tunnel of any enemy forces and to destroy or capture any technology or weaponry. Those interested in this mission meet in the basement conference room." Having given out all of the missions Riely let out a sigh of relief. 'That was easier than I thought it would be. "I can't thank you all enough for agreeing to help with this war. If we do our part we will be rewarded. Watch each other's backs I want to see everyone returning in one piece. Now everyone go to the meeting area of your wanted mission. Decide on a leader and prepare to move. We leave tomorrow morning. Good luck everyone." With that Riely sat, more of collapsed, into her chair watching as everyone went to their meeting areas.

(OOC: You do not have to go on the suggested mission if you would rather do a different one show up to that meeting. However try to keep the teams even.)

Stelian took his seat at the beginning of the meeting and listened closely to what Riely had to say. The more information she gave out on the missions the less interested he became until the third mission. The third mission is best suited for the Vampires or other night based creatures. It is a search and destroy/capture mission in an elaborate tunnel system under Central China. The mission is to clear the tunnel of any enemy forces and to destroy or capture any technology or weaponry. Those interested in this mission meet in the basement conference room." 'This mission would suit me perfectly. Stealth and close to mid range combat. Speed will be my strong point plus the heightened senses in the dark. This will be perfect.' With the dismissal of the meeting for the three groups to disburse and go to their designated meeting areas Stelian headed down to the basement. He quickly took a seat it the back corner of the room watching for anyone else who would be filing in. Once all of the members he expected had arrived he stood. "I would like to take lead in this mission if the rest of you find that agreeable." He looked around to see what the others were thinking and wondering if anyone would challenge him.
