Notes
-I am currently staying at Zhi’s Kung Fu Dojo in one of the spare rooms.
-It was already Zhi’s Sanctum, so I just added some resources to it.
-I do sleep around a little as a quick and fun way of picking up a bundle of mana. You know, just doing my part to ensure that the eagle at the top of Macdonough monument doesn’t fly off. Currently only the good Dr. Owens has had the pleasure since my return.
-I’ve only been back for a couple of weeks, and in that time I was taking kung fu lessons because I suck at hand-to-hand.
-I’ve only just started reestablishing myself in town which is why my dots for allies is at 1 and 1. During the Harvester Slayings, I was a familiar face with a lot of cops and hospital workers, and known to be pretty dependable. But it’s been about five years. Various people have come and gone. There’s still a good many old faces, but a lot are new too.
-I met a few people just by poking my nose around. Got introduced to Officer Sterling and knew she was a bit different from your run of the mill vanilla mortal. I’d been discreetly using different detection spells while going about town to try and gather any clues. I figured she could be helpful.
-Generally, the third weekend in every month I plan to take a trip up to Montreal under the pretense of checking up on the club I’m a partial owner of. It’s also a chance to get news and things from the mage council there. Loredo is the council liaison to Heng and me, but he’s a dick and I don’t like having to do things through him.
-I’m taking an evening class with professor Sturm to brush up on occult studies. Being a mage you would figure that I know this stuff, but I don’t know jack.
-I’m a little bit of a drinker. I mean come on, I can basically take anything water based and turn it into alcohol, pretty much all of the time.
