Cain Calloway's Story

As he walked along the dimly lit street, passing several benches and street lamps, Cain bit down loudly on a large red apple, his fangs making short work of the delicate skin. He savored the sweet fruit's juices as he chewed and looked down the street. It was late at night, and the streets were mostly deserted, mostly thanks to their friendly neighborhood psychopath scaring the citizens into hiding in the late hours, and righty so. 

It began about a month ago, his father's informants had informed him of a body found in a nearby factory, mostly drained of blood and brutally dismembered. Originally, Cain's father had suspected one of the damphir, and they were placed in lockdown for a fortnight, but when another two bodies, ravaged in the same way, turned up in such a short time, his father had made a public announcement acknowledging the killings, and assuring the public that house Calloway were both innocent and actively pursuing the killer. Lord Calloway, busy with his duties, tasked Cain and his siblings with finding the killer and bringing him or her to justice, something Cain was glad to do, as it added a bit of excitement to his usual days. 

He had since found two more bodies, one floating under a dock, and another that had been rotting in a residence for a period of which he had estimated to be about a week. Cain, like his father, also suspected an damphir, as a full-fledged vampire would have neither the bloodlust, nor courage to kill in the home of Calloways. 

He sighed, sitting down on a grey bench, looking up at the night sky. He had been patrolling all night and hadn't found a thing, other than the occasional beggar, or drunk, and decided he would return to castle Calloway, to retire to his room for the night. 

He entered through the main gates, handing one of the servants his hat and coat, and making his way up the stairs toward his room.

Rose stood outside her brother's room awaiting his return. She had missed his departure and was not allowed to leave the castle without one of her siblings at this time of night, ironically due to the very murders that they had been assigned to investigate. The thought behind this being that the killed would likely be able to easily overpower her, should she accidentally happen upon him. Thus, unable to find any of her siblings who were awake, present, and willing to accompany her, Rose was forced to remain idle and wait for Cain to get back.

In her idleness, Rose tried once more to formulate a profile for this "Ripper", as he had been dubbed. Unlike her brother and father, Rose did not believe this to be the work of any damphir, though she had no proof otherwise. In her mind, these were not acts of bloodlust, or at least not the literal thirst for blood. If nourishment were the only motive, any intelligent person, and to have eluded the Calloways this long, they would have to be intelligent, would have simply left the city for somewhere that they could carry out their acts in a less conspicuous manner. And besides, what purpose would dismembering the victims serve if thirst were the reason for the killer's actions? No, while she was not ruling out the possibility, she found it far more likely that there was another motive involved.

Just as Rose was about to give up and head back to her own room, she was starting to get rather tired, Cain arrived. Stepping between him and the door to his quarters, the supposedly incidental nature of this act being debatable, she greeted him. "Ah, good evening, brother. I've been anxiously awaiting your arrival, as there a few things about which I believe we should talk. Firstly, and this is only a request, in the future, would you please inform me before departing to investigate the case. As you know, I can't do the same without an escort, and I would greatly appreciate if you would allow me to accompany you."

Rose appeared as though she were about to say more, but was overcome by a yawn before she could. Blinking and rubbing her eyes, she paused for a moment, seemingly having lost her train of thought. After a few seconds, she added "I can't help with the investigation if I can't investigate."

Evangelina made her way through the castle doing her normal nightly chores and then some. She liked to keep busy and help even those she didn't have to. After being forced to stay in she was to scared to even think about leaving until the "ripper" was caught. Blaming the Damphirs seemed extreme at first. She was one of the youngest and felt targeted. After all why would the older ones go on a rampant killing spree. She sighed as she carried a bowl of hot water and a cloth. Every so often running the cloth over the banister. Maybe one of her masters or mistresses would like to feed? She hoped so. Something a bit more exciting than cleaning. Loving every last one of the Calloways and unable to pick which to go to first.

Hearing voices echo through the halls. Cain and little miss Rose. Rose asking to go out and investigate. She could barely ask the question without yawning, how would she stay awake to roam the city streets. Putting the bowl down and wiping her damp fingers on the front of her maids uniform. Making sure she looked clean before making herself known.

"Young master and mistress is there anything I can assist you with? Perhaps putting miss rose in bed" her eyes shifted to rose with a slight wink. Using little to no formality when she talked to them. Even if she wasn't a full vampire, and owned by them. It never felt right to act as there complete and utter slave. Sometimes even enjoying the punishment if she pushed their buttons to hard. Bowing slightly to the two. "Perhaps a snack after investigating the city. That "ripper" he's still out right? What if it was some human mad that he wasn't changed or something. People are crazy like that. Humans too. " looking at the two. Seeing if her comment would bait one into argueeing with her about it. There was a slim chance it could be a human. But really what human would go against the Calloways. To be able to evade the countless searches. A rough vampire no doubt. Or so she thought.

Rose's request to accompany Cain on his excursions didn't apply to tonight of course. Even if it had, he had just gotten back and didn't seem to be planning on going anywhere else.

"Young master and mistress is there anything I can assist you with? Perhaps putting Miss Rose in bed?"

Rose turned to see the source of the voice, which was apparently Evangelina. She had done so just in time to catch the wink. As a reaction to both this and the question, Rose blushed and adopted a sour expression. "I am not a child." she stated. "I am thus perfectly capable of putting myself to bed." As if in response to this, another yawn managed to escape her. Though she tried to hide it behind her hand, it was still fairly obvious. "That proves nothing."

She nodded at Evangelina's suggestion that the Ripper might be human. "I've actually considered that as a possibility as well. Even the little moths are prone to bloodlust, though usually of a different kind. The main flaw with that theory is that most of them simply lack the raw physical strength demonstrated in these cases. We also shouldn't discount the possibility of a Lycan, as this level of brutality is something they're already known for. In addition, they make up the majority of the police force, so it would be no wonder that they haven't already been caught. That said, I have never actually been to one of the crime scenes, so this is based solely upon case notes and simple deduction. I would be able to help far more if I were allowed to do something other than tell the courts that we are on the case." This last statement was directed mostly at Cain.
