Symphony tried not to think of that thing Amity sent after Sanctity. She just took the lead from her cousin, and held tight to the arm that held on her in turn. They needed a place to hide.

They blitzed back along the path, even as Symphony desperately tried to remember anything that could have helped them. She remembered that the path from here steadily sloped down to a few bends back down to lower ground. One such bend actually forked to what she saw as a small cavern on the mountain face. Not a spot that Sancity would possibly overlook, but bringing in those wyverns through that cavern would be a different story.

If they took the wyverns out of the picture, the two of them stood a chance. Wordlessly, she led Amity down the path, where their destination was only a little ways ahead. Who knew how much time that magic... ghost bought for them. She didn't want to take chances.

If it's fine with you Sui, I'm just going to ignore the last bit of your post. Thanks for understanding.

Even with the other lady's earlier surprise, it didn't occur to Symphony until that point that the Madame literally spoke of human sacrifices. Not only a regiment of soldiers, but also the lives of innocent women. And for what? Even if the Madame didn't have the choice, Symphony knew that there was no appeasing a demon.

"My name is Symphony." The knight answered the madame, bowing to her as best she could. She noticed how Miss Meyani still held to her hand this whole time, all the way to this place. Symphony wished for the chance to comfort her some more, the poor lady must still be so distressed.

"I'm a knight without a banner, but a knight all the same." She went on, lifting her head in determination. "Whatever you feel about my odds, I cannot let these deaths go unavenged. Please, if there's any lead you could provide us, that would be most helpful.

"You think just the three of you makes this ev- ah!"

Alright, she wanted to dodge the spear first. Symphony spun around to one side, quickly enough that the spearpoint deflected on her chainmail. It still hit her like a fist at her side, though still likely nothing compared to a hole to her chest. Her next impulse was her own spear, but when Sanctity pulled out another spear, she needed something else to meet that.

Frankly, she also needed something to stop that other jerk threatening Amity. And needed to take care of that third jerk from flanking them. Yeah, this required some fast thinking. Symphony reached for her hurlbat, and snapped it off right before she rolled to one side.

The axe spun at Sanctity's direction, though it scarcely missed her. Probably tore through her wyvern's wing with that horrible, piercing shriek, though Symphony wasn't in the mind nor the position to see it. This spear barely pinned her by the coat. This was bad. If it was just herself, she could fend them off, but if Amity chose to let loose here...

"We need to break past them." Symphony cried, as she pulled out her hammer. The third wyvern rider tried to cast down in front of her with a spear point. She narrowly swerved from the strike, and slammed her steel on the beast's leg. Another strike to the scales.

She had to clear a path quicker for her cousin.

"Oh, wonderful." More help certainly didn't hurt. And with some lovely members in this party, there was also plenty of inspiration for her to get this done. Symphony smiled at the eager ladies, and lifted herself off the counter to follow them. "Come on now, sirrah. We have leads to follow."

As the lancer stepped outside, she approached the others with a graceful, knightly bow. "I see you two are already acquainted, though I haven't had the same pleasure as of yet." She grinned. "My name is Symphony, knight-errant. And to you ladies, I'm most definitely at your service."

"Vampires." That's certainly new, even though Symphony read much about demonology a long time ago. When she thought about it, they didn't sound too different from succubi, did they? She wondered if the one that prowled about here was anything like Lady Harmony...

Well, well, she needed to focus. The knight held the blonde's hand ever tightly, and acknowledged the other ladies attracted to this disaster. "Even if she wasn't your friend, clearly you felt a connection to her. Passion, it's very admirable. Don't worry, milady, we will hunt the one responsible for this."

Too bad that the Madame left too early, she would have been invaluable in figuring the cause for these attacks. "Vampires are despicable creatures that hunt the innocent through seduction and force." Symphony answered grimly. "If it's been targeting the Madame's dancers here in town, its lair musn't be that far."

"Oh, what a terrible thing to do!"

She emerged from the parting crowd in a purple-headed blur. In a single, fluid motion, Symphony picked up the corpse off the ground, and brought it to a slightly more dignified position. Against that fountain that town squares always seemed to have, for instance. That looked better. The Madame also looked at her oddly for this, though if the knight noticed, she didn't show it.

"I apologize for that." Symphony smiled at the Madame and the armored bystander. "But even a lady as pretty as her shouldn't be wallowing on the dirt." Not like they could have found any more clues about the body, other than her deathly pale skins Word traveled fast when they brought the victim into town.

"Don't worry, dear lady." She quickly turned, and took the hand of the delicate blonde dancer. "I'll be more than happy to exact justice for your friend, here. Do you remember anything? If this is indeed a demon attack, we should know right away..."

Symphony only gave a slight glance at mutt, before she followed the lady back in. Who was this Red, and why did she have a dog of rank...?

Oh, never mind. She leaned against the counter, arms crossed while more things about this princess came to light. "Such a dangerous rumor." She shrugged. "And to think that's been claiming lives for this long, well... maybe you should stop letting boys run into these bandits..."

Really, she would have pursued this rumor if only to deal with such a clear threat. It was the right thing to do, an easy shot to local fame, and a sure way to impress her lady friend. And if it happened that the rumors were actually true? Wow.

"Yes, you all heard me!" She clapped her hands once to get the rest of the tavern's attention. "Where way did these dead men go to look for the princess?"

"Don't play games with us." Symphony scowled. This is really what she missed from the family: the warm receptions. "Keep your dreams of owning this rock, but you're taking us to the Peak, or staying out of our way."

Sanctity had always been this much of a pain for a good third of her years. They fought with sticks once, now they've got spears and wyverns mixed in the fray. Still the same song and dance, though. But now the cousin she loved is caught up in this.

Haha, no, only the one dancer is needed. The rest need to be able to slay themselves a Vampire =)

I'll accept Symphony and Rachna, although Hystrix tells me that Symphony might have another RP on the horizon, so this will have to move at a fairly steady pace. I'll set the bar at one post every... 5 days if you guys can manage?

Yeah, don't worry about that anymore. I'm okay with whatever pace, especially since I'm looking into a new job to get busy with soon.

"Doing what the rest of you failed to do." Symphony answered dryly, stepping back so that Amity can be seen a bit. "You may remember her. I'm taking Amity to see her father."

She turned to the armored woman with a sly smile. "But it was all nice of you to come down here just to greet us. Really, I'm touched."

Symphony scowled upon the sudden distraction. It were stories that entertained the sweet lady, then the knight knew more than plenty to satisfy her. There was even lovely music to set the mood.

She hasn't given up just yet, of course. Maybe that urgent business of hers was something she can assist. Symphony simply followed the lady outside the pub, just in that she picked up what was going on here. Wait, is that what he meant earlier about another failed attempt?

"How cruel." She frowned, coming up to the girl. Cruel, and really sort of disgusting if she thought about it too much. "Who laughs at a time like this?"

"Could be. Probably a patrol." Symphony doubted it was for them, unless they made such a presence in the past few months. But what if they tried to call for their attention? Maybe they'd give a free ride to the daughter of the late Emory Duval." That is, if they didn't start out aggressive to them.

"If they spotted us, well..." She beckoned her cousin. "Stay close to me, Ami." Somehow, Symphony sensed trouble, but didn't go for her lance. They can surely talk their way out of this.

"I wouldn't want that either." Symphony didn't want to make light of Veral and the others' sacrifices just to glorify herself. This was a lot of get through, even Amity's jest didn't do much for her. She wished there was any other way to deal with it, other than head on.

"Well... if things go south, you don't need to stay at all." She offered tentatively. It wasn't even sure that Amity wanted to stay, but it was worth mentioning. "We've been doing well with each other, haven't we?"

"I could hold back. A bit." Symphony shrugged. She didn't care about dealing with Divinity, but she didn't want Amity hurt in the process. They needed to tread a bit carefully with family, especially when it came to this whole dark magic business. Speaking of which, they should... probably get that settled with. "They'll be asking questions. Have you thought about what to tell them?"

"Oh, yes." Amity did mention that unholy marriage at some point, didn't she? "I suppose it should be her that I should be worried about." Well, the thought of visiting her blonde, beautifully self-centered cousin did amuse her a little bit. "Don't worry, I won't let her hurt you. I'm sure she'll be far more distracted to the fact that I'm still breathing."

"Unimaginable secrets and treasures..." Symphony mused to herself, right before she downed her latest round of cider. That's how the story went, she heard. "And for such a maiden to be kept in with all of them, as if just another prize. Such a pity, don't you say?"

She didn't get a word off her drinking friend, though. Mostly because he's already face flat on the counter, too tired and too weak with his liqour. She shrugged slightly, gave the man a pat on the back, and laid out the coin for both of them on the counter. Poor fellow's probably going to get his purse pilfered by the time he's up, but that's never her problem.

The knight stood up, and stretched upright to the clinking of her chainmail. Sores from new armor always took some time to get used to, even the ones that she fitted for herself. Didn't look that pretty on her either, but oh well. She used to worry about appearances in the field so much, though that seemed trivial if she got struck in the gut. Symphony needed to get more serious about this knightly business.

Not at the moment, of course. Especially not in the presence of that pretty blonde who just came in. Lovely, lovely. Turned out that Symphony didn't need to go far to find a mystery maiden to appeal to.

"You don't look from around here, miss. New to Svi, too?" She leaned her elbow against the counter, her form enough to keep her drunk buddy away from view. "Stay a while, you must be tired from all that walking." Symphony smiled, and offered her a seat.

"Come on now, this wasn't even for debate." Symphony said, while she continued to march foward. "This is your father. Whatever happened, you must pay your respects to him. You know you don't need to worry for me." She didn't think much of Uncle Emory, except for the fact that he and father never quite saw each other eye to eye. If her family even deigned to attend to the funeral, they must have come and gone by now. At least, that's what she hoped.

"Besides, I'm sure even dear old auntie can at least let me past the gates for once." She gave a wistful smile, though her cousin didn't see it. "They must miss you a lot."

Symphony glanced over the cliffside that led to certain death, a bitter chill in the wind that brushed her lavender hair. Quail's Peak was as pleasant as ever. When she remembered where Lady Harmony current resided, she wondered if the family really did enjoy their terrifying mountain abodes. Only her cousin could have pulled her back within shouting distance of a Duval fief, much more this one.

Morbid as the thought was, she thought the wake of her uncle's death as the worst time to come back. How many of her relatives were here by now? How many of them either wanted her dead or at least buried from the family tree? Still, she never got the feeling that Amity wanted to go back either. Not without reason, of course. Hard to tell what the girl thought about these days, but that much seemed true.

Amity's... changed a bit since that encounter in the inn. So far, it looked like an improvement over before, yet, well, everything that led up that incident just made it feel wrong. A deal with the darkness, so to speak. Symphony hasn't really tried to push the subject - anyway she broke it would have antagonized the younger girl - but it did make her worry. A lot. She's supposed to know what she was doing? What should she do now?

"We won't make good time if we stop for everything." Symphony spun to Amity for a moment, as she waited for her catch up. The girl teetered so close to that edge. What was she doing? "I know this is hard, but we must keep pushing to town."
