A woman would enter, dressed in an old beige uniform with matching trousers, it was obviously well worn. On her shoulder was a rifle, and she held herself with a certain pride, her features stern and eyes tinted crimson indicating she was vamperic, but very little else.

Walking over she would go to the bar, staring at the barman, hearing his heartbeat and then say in pronounced Russian accent, "Tarasun please, if you can make it." while she waited she noted Casren and the Greek she had heard of, "My, my dear friend it has been a while, am I right in what I heard about you getting with Ms Monroe herself?"

Smiling she saw the barman bemused expression and nodded as he handed over the drink, shaking his head, "Don't worry, I can handle it." with that she would sit herself down next to him, placing her rifle close by, she smiled, "Well dear friend it has been I dare say many decades since we last met. I was exiled to Paradise since it was constantly dark, you never seen such beauty, I truly ate well my friend. I got your message you sent out. I apologize for it taking so long, but well the delay in time is to be expected. I see you are still as always friend to all vampires even little whelps, so why take my paradise dear friend?"

"Nada my friend, I have heard only that great Empires fallen and that our great nation was conquered by something akin to cheating." sighing she would drink heartily from the goblet of her drink and continue, "I did hear rumors that this area is rife with turmoil, reminds me of homeland, ah Comrade I did miss you and each time saw a pretty wench I knew you would be wanting her. But it was either my exile or I be killed, give me paradise over hell anytime."

She would shrug, "I did miss the camaraderie that came with Comrades but well we can only do so much. I am rather impressed with those men and woman you got next to you, glad my effect still lasts to this day. After all men and woman should be part of the army. I am altogether puzzled with how you got such loyal recruits, care to share?" while waiting she would take another long hearty drink, loving the taste of Tarasun, it reminded her of paradise, which was a mighty expression of Elysium.

Listening carefully she would say, "They seemed well-trained, nothing lousy like the so-called Americans have, no they seem to be able. I am impressed thoroughly impressed." noting the new arrival, she would bow low and respond, "You are one of the legendary Dracul's siblings, it is rather astounding to meet you here. I am not sure whether I should curtsy or offer you a drink on me." she would reply to him in her trade-mark Russian wit.

Unsure of what else to say, she took another drink, before speaking up, "I would like another drink comrade, Tarasun you oughta try it would give you some balls, you seem to lack them." with that she would listen having been taught never speak when you could learn more by listening.

The Russian finally appearing to notice would stand up and in flash appear next to the fledgling her fangs exposing as she spoke, "Either you drink blood or you drink Tarasun personally I don't think you could handle either, so make like a good citizen and just waste away and let the strongest survive. You my dear would not last a second in Russia, as clearly you honestly think you are somehow better than us. Look around you, you are alone. Your the youngest."

Having been rather amused she would yell out, "WHEREAS I LOVE A GOOD BAR BRAWL, WOULD YOU ALL SHUT UP NOW. I REPRESENT MOTHERFUCKIN' RUSSIA AS IN SOVIET UNION AS IN YOU BEST FUCKIN' LISTEN AS IN BALLS OF FUCKIN' STEEL. THEREFORE QUIT YOUR PESTERING!"

Laughing she would hop on top on the table, draw her rifle, ready it, turn of the safety and fire steady stream from her AK47 in general direction of the enemy, "I am really tired of that joke, in Siberia you would have your neck snapped, instead I shall just issue this warning, I am Athena Ivanova of the Former Soviet Union I served loyally from my dying day. I am tired of you people, and I tire of this Casren, if you will give me a map where the place is, I shall make my way there."

With that Athena would leave, frankly tired of all this. Hopping off the table, she walk back towards the exit and leave, clearly uninterested in all this. Her AK47 had safety turned on and already fresh magazine in. Always be prepared, Russian boyscouts were prepared much worse things than American.

Having finally arrived she would rest against the fountain and sigh. So much had changed, Siberia certainly was not the center for technology or progression and so much more different. The town itself was reasonable, rather reminiscent of the old folk towns in Russia.

She had arrived before them, then again she was used to long drawn out marching, the kind that exhaust most others, so she could go for days literally without rest.

"Verinotte Hollow," Casren would emerge from nowhere, ten soldiers taking their perimeter around the square. He crossed to the ornate fountain, catching Grace's eye and smiling.

"Do you enjoy the ambiance?" He gestured up Pompoen Path, with it's lanterns and canal, then swung his arm south to point at the fine tavern. "I do believe we can find refreshments in here. Daemala's side project, now hiring as I hear!" Casren looked around for the Dracul, betting he had already arrived and was enjoying some blood wine. Maybe.

"Shall we?"

Listening as she usually did, she would follow into the bar. Rather impressed but hiding this behind a mask of stoic soldier.

Sitting herself down in the Fountain she nursed a small hangover, much had taken place since then, including some bullshit in the bar, people loved waving their dicks around to make a point. It was rather tiring, nonetheless she felt rested at least and the Tavern did seem to provide some good wines, if a little too classy for her in her Communist mindset.

In the end it was better than nothing, Casren had informed Daemala to get her up and in the square for midday, as he wished to discuss something, always the dutiful soldier she had awoken without bother and gotten ready.

Really, she was already amazed how different things were, the old fool actually settled down, next thing she be told is he got himself a wife and couple of brats, now that would be hell for him, most positively.

"Casren you old rogue, you will always to try get me in bed, but doubt ever get as close as that one time in 1967, LSD never again!" she laughed indicating she was being good-natured.

"So, did you ask me here to try and finish your work old rogue, or something more perhaps interesting."

"It certainly is impressive, but, when I got the letter you seemed mighty concerned about a family called Lessards and fear of people watching you daily?" sighing she would shrug, "From all this I assume things have changed, well best catch me up. I was hoping we could have yesterday, but well serendipity got a fun way of screwing everyone involved."

"You wish for me to lead these people? I am probably slightly out of training Casren, I am flattered truly I am, but surely you must have someone else? Like I am supposing this army and your faithful watch did not come out of nowhere, why can't he lead them? Or am I to figure you would rather a friend handled this? I am unsure what to think, I kept my training concerning my shooting and fighting to impeccable scale in Siberia."

Pausing she would point to herself, her Russian accent showing through, "I am simply wondering Casren can you truly rally them behind me. If so I will take it, but certain things will have to change, for instance I intend to reach out to Mercenary groups and see if I can get their blessing after all, my skills from my time in OSNAZ which now is SPETNAZ I believe we could come to an understanding of sorts, plus I could provide training the likes most of their men not used too."

"If you truly believe in me Cas, then I accept." with that she would hold out her hand and shake his, thus sealing the deal and making Athena Ivanova head of the Forces Vankoryth.

The leader of the Vankoryth Forces and former Soviet Russian OSCOZ would enter, noting the exchange between a member and another, walking over she would say, "Perhaps he is being I say little too blunt, mayhaps we drink and quit acting like we wish to kill one another. After all we do not want to make a scene."

Shrugging she would order Tarasun from nearby waitress and respond, "I am just saying we are all adults, why not lets treat this whole idea like we are adults. I shall say this, how about I explain a little more. See unlike Feron here I have traveled with Casren a long time, and I only recently returned from Siberia but during my time I can tell you, he is to be trusted and somewhat noble person, if a little ladysman. As for you well you seemed highly educated and may I say demand respect, what if you take a venture to our area as honored guest?"

"I served OSNAZ before the SPETNAZ, I can see potential, think of it simply as an offer you can view the area, peer around and see. Plus to add to this offer, I could even make you a far better hunter by teaching you techniques only taught in Russia, Siberia, you are gifted beyond a doubt. But even the master can always learn more." as the Tarasun was handed, she quaffed readily, waiting for their answer.

"You are clearly not understanding and frankly this girl only has so much patience, so I shall be crystal clear here. One we don't care if you were a hunter, we have Alucard and we have one of Van-Helsings turned, two your threats are pointless considering where I have been. Three I do believe you would soon understand what we offer. Four I will not start any fights here, but if you intend to not be smart and realize error, then you will be hunted down without mercy. Though all this may come across as harsh, we are simply trying to make you see an alternative plus give you somewhere but this murky bar to live. Consider it a way to investigate or consider it a way to perhaps widen your perception, my suggestion is this use your common sense and follow me, or be hunted and eventually killed. The Lessards once tried to challenge us, now they're a mockery not even werewolves can. So I say this here and now, we provide sanctuary, plenty of food diverse range of vampires and other supernatural horrors. Wing City gives only death."

Turning to her tired companion she said, "Welcome to Elysium for all supernatural beings, this here is a groundwork for a future we hope to achieve, uniting of all vamperic creatures. This is lofty goal, but as you can see we offer no harm to anyone here."
