Gennadiya stood in the room that she had taken over as a laboratory. It was a rather hapdash kind of place, Genna hadn’t planned on leading up a research into the biology of these flametouched monsters. She had original done her first autopsy so she could research into better ways to kill the creatures in an effort to save more life. She should have known better then to start on it. No on else had wanted to do so suddenly she found herself as the expert. Which wasn’t the best Genna though. She had done medicine research for arcs now and helped with other people research but hadn’t ever really led a project so it was her work room had assembled slowly over time.

To also be fair Genna primary occupation here was as a healer and so when needed her research would be abandoned. To help keep soldiers alive. On this trial she had been informed that she had found herself with time, and another creature for her to take apart. Genna had firmly informed them that they were NOT to drop it on her table waiting for her to get to it. Now she was aware that when the creature was killed, she would have to look into it quickly or else lose the sample, and so she was here today.

In the center of the room was the examination table. The blond-haired healer cursed that table as she really hatted scrubbing the stupid thing after each autopsy. The cleaner’s attitude was like why clean the butchers table. Genna didn’t want her research contaminated so after each session she personally made sure it was cleaned and the remains of these monsters completely deposed off. The table occupied the center of the room with plenty of room to move around its four sides so that there would be easy access to any part of the creature with out having to move it. She had confiscated a few bookcase and little shelves to hold items she needed. There was a small end table with a chair shoved under it where Genna could write notes as she came to various stopping points.

She had a shelf with bottles filled with alcohol filled with parts that she had thought about researching more but hadn’t really had a chance to. Other selves held the notebooks that she had made notes in. The small quantity of books showed a reflection of the slowness process not Genna’s unwillingness to take notes. Genna had learned from Faith and understood the importance. Though at this point most them were observations. There were other books of course that she had borrowed from the library about previous encounters with these creatures.

Genna herself was dressed in browns, the best color to hide gore, with a pair of clean gloves, and her hair up and out of the way. Currently she was waiting for the man who brough her the beast’s body to arrive with the ugly thing. Genna did find the verity and different shapes of these things quite unique, which made her very suspicious that they weren’t natural. The physiological part of her training really did make her wonder if they weren’t the by product of something other than nature.

While waiting Genna sat down at her small desk and began her entries about todays autopsy.

Once, so very long ago, Faith had been allowed to observe and assist at an autopsy. Despite the fact that she was a slave, the doctor had allowed her to be there. Faith had found it utterly fascinating. Indeed, for a long time, dead bodies were all that she worked on; owned by an undertaker, that was how she learned. Now, she was part of the group who were bringing in the corpse of the latest kill to Gennadiya.

Faith had arrived there this morning and she had been faced with a new disease. That had been taking her attention but, when she heard that Gennadiya was here and was going to be performing an autopsy on the creatures - that she was in fact following up on other findings she had, Faith could not resist the chance to find out. Knowing things, learning things, had always been a pull for the earnest young Zuuda and now was no different. So, as the white-cloaked head of the Order of the Adunih helped the other two members who were carrying in a very strange-looking corpse, Faith smiled at Gennadiya. "Hello, doctor," she said softly. Faith never worried about being involved, getting her hands dirty or doing the heavy lifting - part of her background, of course - and so she more than pulled her weight.

Once the creature was on the table, Faith smiled at Genna. "You've been doing a great job here. I'm sorry I couldn't come and help sooner," Faith had been, she explained, somewhere where magic, marks, and so on didn't work and thus she had not received any communication and had no means to travel even had she been able to. "Except the old fashioned kind, of course," her expression was careful - neutral, even - as she spoke about having been away. Faith wasn't going to share any information about that, so she was careful to keep what she said to a minimum.

"What have you already found?" Faith asked. She had with her, which she handed to Genna, some notes on what she'd been doing. "The new disease? I think it's mutating the blood in the victims. Is that congruent with your findings?" Faith would be the first to admit that blood was a focus of hers - but this was, undoubtedly, odd. "But there are different varieties of these creatures?" Faith took in all the information that Gennadiya could provide.

When they'd spoken through what Gennadiya had already found - they'd have a structure to go with and they would be able to get on. "Do you think these are creations or mutations of existing animals?" Faith asked. She wondered because it might help them to understand. "And is there any indication of ... have you run any tests on their blood?" There were a thousand thoughts she had, but, Faith was nothing if she was not polite and so, she looked at her colleague and she smiled. "May I join you, Doctor?"

And she waited for Gennadiya to lead. Then, she would step in alongside.

Genna had finished making her entry stating the relevant information of about the date, and the planned activities and the relevant information she knew about it. It was then that she could hear the sound of people bringing in the next monster. The blue eyes healer set down the pen and grabbed for an apron. Her clothing in necessary could be disposed of but she wasn’t the rich girl who would just buy something new, anymore. She cared for her things and took efforts to protect them. The apron was also a lot easier to clean. Genna looked over and confirmed that she had gloves set aside. Originally she had only used regular gloves that would protect her hands, but now she had a pair of thick leather gloves that could take heat for short periods of time.

Now she waited to see what was brought in before she selected her handware. Genna was surprised as Faith walked into the room helping to carry the beast. Her expression showed her surprise, and just at seeing Faith. One couldn’t be a very good healer if you weren’t willing to carry a body (living or dead) so that didn’t even enter Genna’s thought. Her expression turned from surprise to true pleasure at seeing her friend, oh and the head of her Order. “Welcome doctor.” Genna returned with a broad smile

They were bringing in one of the larger Fire Rams that caused a fair amount of problems, but had been killed close enough to make it worth hauling the thing back. Genna moved forward to help direct the creature to be placed large table. There was grunting as creature was lifted onto the table and unceremoniously set down. “Thank you.” She said to her siblings in healing as they nodded and panted before stepping out. Faith offered her praise for Genna’s work and apologies for not being there sooner, Genna nodded her acceptance though her expression said no apology was necessary and she blushed a bit at the praise. The Lysorian woman realized that Faith ran a world wide organization as head of this order, and she also was the Champion of an Immortal. Being busy was in her job description.

Genna listed to Faith explanation about where she was, even while she adjusted the corpse so that it was positioned so they could more easily access critical parts. She was also well aware that Faith wasn’t sharing everything, and didn’t want to. That was okay with the healer who as a Favored of Ymiden often dealt with people who for good reason didn’t want to tell everything. Her faith and trust in Faith was such she trusted if she needed to know then Faith would tell her. Genna did smile at Faith when she mentioned traveling the old fashioned way. “Before I came to Rharne I only used the old fashioned ways to travel, so I understand.”

Then the word really began. Genna was helping with dieses, but one of the gold cloaks had taken control of that project as Genna worked on these beasts, but she did have the gold’s notes, and her own observations and then what she had seen here. “I think changing is the word of the hour.” Genna said and went over what she had seen and gathered from the others. “I know its fairly obvious but I am sure we have the same architect as the Flametouched Plague back in Rharne. The mode of transport has changed, and this is far more subtle, but yes they are trying to change blood and I suspect to make it change other parts of the body.” Genna thought for a moment. “Even though we found a cure back in Rharne to keep people alive, in a way that plague was successful. Rharne is suddenly a washed with red heads.” Genna’s eyes narrowed. “I hate to ask but what change is this disease trying to make.”

Genna eyes showed she was still in thought as she walked over and pulled out the journals she had made, the couple that showed the autopsy notes of the creatures she had worked on. In the case of the same creatures she didn’t necessarily rewrite everything she had written before, just any times something was different or she did something different. She also handed the journal with her thoughts, questions and answers. “The creatures are different, but the creature themselves all have a theme, and not to beat the obvious over the head, fighting and fire.” Together they went over the notes she had taken, and Genna pulled the samples she had collected, include her collection of gem shards.

The platinum haired healer didn’t hesitate when asked “Mutations. They are following an existing physical structure of creatures, only specific areas that satisfy certain needs have changed. I also believe the presence of the gem in the brain is a fair indicator as well.” Genna shook her head. “I would love to have help. As for testing blood, no, in that regard I failed. Originally my main focus was to find weakness in the creatures, and it was only as I reviewed note and moved to the important parts of what I was seeing. That and by the time I got to most of them the blood was drained or diluted.” She looked at the fairly fresh monster. “This one though seems to have come straight from being killed.” She looked at Faith. “Checking the blood would be good on this one. Also since its new we will need to check to see if it has a gem in the brain as well.”

The two began to get things set up. Genna began a blood letting to collect the samples they needed before nature destroyed the evidence while Faith could set up the other equipment. It was a slow process but soon Genna had a few samples. She made sure they were covered and secured before they could become more contaminated. During this process Genna kept having the same thought and final spoke to Faith. “I know with out an Autopsy I am completely jumping to conclusions but I think we need a blood sample of a Ram. If this did come from Ram we will have a base comparison.”

The young woman wasn’t actually asking permission, just explaining where she was about to disappear to. Genna had trust in her knowledge and her skills that she didn’t need everyone else’s permissions. She was also aware of her own bias in this questions, but really felt the comparison would answer a lot of questions. Pulling off her gloves Genna took some sample tubes and marched from the room. She returned a bit later with some samples from a Ram.

She listened to Genna's thought processes and what she had done already. The gem in the brain was an interesting fact and Faith noted it carefully. What Genna had found was all important and the young Champion of Famula nodded her head. "You've done well," she said, honestly. "I'd like to have a look at these gems, too." Although not a mage, Faith wondered whether this was some magical thing or whether the disruption of ether would help fight these creatures. Something had to.

There would be an answer, she knew. There always was. So far.

Genna described things well, what she had found and what the similarities between these creatures was. Faith got busy getting everything ready as Genna took the blood samples and, as she did, Faith's mind ticked over, from one thing to another and then another. "I would suggest," she said, softly, "that we need to have a look at this in terms of not just a rams blood, but also thinking about the fire and fighting angle. Do we have anyone who is Aukari here?" She glanced up from what she was doing and gave the slightest grin. "I'm assuming none of the people here are marked by him, or openly his children.". Thankfully, though, she told Genna, "I have a literally perfect memory, thank to Vri. I'll check it against the Aukari blood that we used previously, in the Dust Quarter," Faith nodded as Gennadiya took some vials and, while the healer was gone, Faith got on with what she could here. Quickly, she came to the conclusion that Gennadiya was correct, this was something similar to the plague they had already seen.

She got blood on to some glass slides, which she then took some time to look at under the magnifier, which she brought out from her Domain Bag. She looked at it closely, making careful notes as she did. Then, Faith got started on trying to find this gem in the brain. That would be key, she was sure. So, she concentrated her work there, once she'd investigated the blood. When Gennadiya got back, Faith looked up and smiled slightly. "There's a gem," she said, although she hadn't yet removed it, she'd opened up the area so that they could. "Also, that blood is interesting. It has a lot of similarities with the Aukari blood I've studied before, but there's animal blood too." Nodding her head to the vials in Gennadiya's hands, she expressed her thoughts. "Good instincts, I'd say. I imagine when we compare them, then we'll see that somehow this is Aukari-like blood mixed with Ram-like blood and I would bet a shining golden nel that this gem is the answer."

Faith was, in all things, careful and here she was no different. "Have you touched these with bare hands? Where are they kept?" This was important because Faith wanted to make sure that they were secured. Safely locked away. Faith looked at Gennadiya and said, quite seriously and calmly. "I have an ability which will give us more information about this - potentially. But if it goes wrong, then I'd like you to pull me away, alright?" Ever since the mirror in the base in Uthaldria, Faith had been cautious.

But, either way, she looked down at the gem and frowned, concentrating. She was quiet for a moment, then she spoke. "There's a young Aukari. Full-blooded, I'd say. Pale, gaunt, his eyes are sunken in. He doesn't look well. He's somewhere dark, dank, no windows." Faith lifted her eyes which were now glowing red. "This is more than important to him. This gem. It's part of his identity, part of who he is. He's sweating, his pupils are dilated, and his breathing is ragged and laboured." Her frown deepened.

"I need to get a book, or some information, about Faldrun," Faith said, determinedly. "I need to know what his blessing does - and his curse." She looked at Genna and she gave a slight smile, though it was mirthless. "Especially his curse. " She raised an eyebrow, her eyes maintaining the red glow which accompanied her use of her Zuuda abilities. "Can we ask someone to fetch it from the library? And if we have a Faldrun cursed person here, then I'd like to know about it. I'm going to ask for a message to go out."
Ability Used
Zuuda Ability: Dedication (Adored)
This ability allows a Zuuda to dedicate a new anchor for a ghost. This new Anchor cannot be greater in number than the amount the ghost is allowed to have, according to their type. If they have lost an Anchor, they can have a new one dedicated to them with this ability, and this allows the Zuuda to dedicate the additional anchor associated with moving between types of ghost. Additionally this ability can remove one Anchor from a ghost and replace it with another. This ability cannot remove a Zuuda Anchor from a Wisp without dedicating another. Curiously this ability is also adept at discerning the true owner of certain items. When walking through a home or picking up an item, the Zuuda will see, in their minds eye, the face of the person who most strongly considers this item their own and how important the item or location is to them.

Vivian grumbled to herself as she headed down to where the autopsies of the slain flamebeasts was taking place. She had left orders with some of the privates that she was to be informed when the autopsies began, but it had evidently taken a sergeant reminding them about it in order for them to actually get around to letting her know. As it was, she was only just know finding out about the autopsies, and she hadn't even been able to leave her office right away since she had been cross checking their supplies in order to see what still needed to be ordered and that had been too important to just set aside.

Still, Vivian thought to herself as she calmed down, it was likely that she would have already been working on the supplies when the autopsies started, so she wouldn't have gotten there any sooner. So by the time she reached where the autopsies were taking place, Vivian was much calmer. There were two privates outside the room just in case something happened, and she nodded to them as she approached. The two saluted her, then stood aside for her, with one of the privates even opening the door for her. Vivian saluted back, then nodded her thanks at the private who had opened the door before stepping in, the private shutting the door behind her.

Vivian stopped and looked at the breacher ram on the table with some distaste, then looked at the two doctors conducting the autopsy and smiled. "Ah, hello Doctor. Welcome to Storms Edge. How long have you been here?" Vivian said, grinning slightly at Faith. The two women had become friends over the course of the war, though they had admittedly gotten off to a rocky start. "And hello, doctor Gennadiya." she said, nodding at the healer, who had been working at Storms Edge for some time now. "Now, those things, they were a proper pain to kill." she said, gesturing at the breacher. "So, have we learned anything useful yet?" she asked, stepping up to the table, though she made sure not to touch anything.
