Date: 6th Justinian 952 (evening)

Localtion: The Silk Palace, somehwhre in Minrathos.

Characters: Cornelius, Nicodemus

players: @jax @Zhavirah

Notes: The Last night is no more, thats what Cornelius is talking to Nicodemus about.




Cornelius sat in the senior house of his little whore house empire The Silk Palace, it had been his first ever house and it was the most successful of the five he now owned. Some of the cortesans in here used to work for the Garden, luckily they were not in it when it bunt to the ground killing thier friends and clients in one night. Cor took his offered drink and felt the heat of one of his favourites brush by. Any other time he might have taken her up on the offer, but not tonight and hadn't for a while.

Most of his free time had been spent in his homecity of Quarinus with a certain Shade, not that he knew she was a shade and unbeknownst to would all unravel sooner then he thought. Tonight however was not about pleasure or pain. It was buisness and he had left instructions to be told when Magister Eous had arrived and to be given every curtusy as an honoured guest such as he was due.

Cor didn't have many that he called friend in the Magisterium, Nico was one of them. Which surpised him greatly.

Tonight he would tell Nico that the Last Night was no more, or so they believed, and he would also warn him that Caius was more than likely out for blood. That was not a good thought, but, Nico deserved to be forewarned.

In the next few months there would need to be damage control and it was going to take a long while for the Cults to prepare. There was a storm coming. wether or not it was the right thing to do he did not care anymore.

For months since that meeting with Fabius he had been bringing the Last Night to Heel, but still, there were many more, so many more and he would continue this hunt in the New Year, for now though what was left of the Last Night was scattered. Still the other Cults would need to know about it and the first step was sharing a beer with Nicodemus so he could inform Raiani and the others. So lighting a cherot the tall dark haired pale skinned giant sat at the bar and let his people do thier work whilst he waited.

The silk palace was a place he never regretted visiting. Surrounded by beautiful man and woman who all were trained to give the best form of companionship. What was their not to love? Wearing his signature shoulder shoulder piece and a big smile on his face, the magister entered the pillow house with full confidence. What did he have to fear, Cornelius had proven himself to be trustworthy and a very useful ally. In more than one way for sure!

"Hello darling" he almost singed as the first lady welcomed him in a desirable manner. That sway of the hip and the extra wink, she was candy to the eye. "Will you bring me to the master of the house?" There was no doubt she would do, the reason she had been standing there meant she was fully informed on how to escort him. What more could his little heart wish for?

The big smile was still on his face as she brought him to the bar area of the mansion. "I hope you called me with good news. I wouldn't have mind staying with her a little longer" Nicodemus placed a little kiss on the cheek of the girl that had escorted him, before waving her off. Business needed to be attended to now, playing could always be done later.

Cor watched Nico's entrance with some slight amusement. This was more a relaxation then the meeting he had to endure that morning. Although the priestess's visit played on his mind, it eased when he saw Nico. Thier was a surprising friendship, one that the normal stoic loner was happy to have.

He smirked as he saw his friend eyeing up the lady that had accompanied him to where Cor sat. "Oh i am sure she will be back later my friend" He winked at Neria "Won't you"

"Yes Master" She bowed her head, gave Nico a sway of the hips and disserpeared into the next room to see to the other guests.

Cor waited until they were alone and getting up moved round to the other side of the bar and poured the Toth Priest a glass of the finest Brandy he had in stock and refilled his own glass.

"Well this morning i had a visit from Veneralia herself come back from exile to stake a claim on what was once hers. The god of Beauty it seems it playing tricks from beyound his hallowed grave" Cor smoothed his eyebrow with his finger and leant on the bar. "I am sure she will make herself known to you all once she has finished her litle crusade to take back everything she percives Illusen took from her"

He sipped some whisky and looked around, buisness was booming tonight. He had dispensed with Nydia's services, paid her handsomely and given her passage to a place of her choosing to set up as she wished. The woman had done a fine job and therefore her own training was complete. He just didn't want her setting up here.

"Also the Last Night is no more" He hissed a little. aware that he had once been a part of that madness and revelled in it. "Fabius and myself started to see the folly of such actions and Caius is missing. He took off after his failed journey into the Deep Roads to retrace Lucretias steps"

Cor thought it would sting more, loosing his best friend and mentor. But oddly enough it had freed him from the shackals of those who would use him for thier own nefarious games. It felt good to be free of that.

"It will take some time to eradicate the rest of them, the Last Night was more numerous then others believed. Be another year maybe before i find them all, but i just wanted you to know that they are being dealt with. If you would not mind letting Rajiani know that as well, seeing as Caius went agains the inner courts rulings"

This was highly unexpected news, the return of a priest?! He remembered fondly the last priest of the Urthemiel branch, she was truly a beauty. But unfortunate things always seemed to follow priests as they were picked off one by one. Whoever would come for him could burn,- literally.

"Veneralia, that is a name I haven't heard in a long time? Is she still pretty? She is one of beauty so that is a stupid question, ofcourse she is still pretty" he twisted the glass in his hand, letting the contents hit just the edges of the glass. Would be a waste to spill such a drink.

He patted his friend of the shoulder, actually relieved that those players were out of view. Now they could focus on the more important task at hand. Perhaps the gods were more on their side than they would ever know. "Good, shackles never suited you my friend. Even when they are invisible. I will look with pride at your progress, we are all one step closer to realise the vision of the gods. They want you to succeed I am sure of that"

Cor inclinned his head, his heart true to Lusacan but his respect to the other gods still enough to accept such a comment.

He drained his glanss and poured another and set it to one side. "Fabius had one warning Nico. Whilst i don't personally believe they exist and are nothing more than ghost stories that the Archon wields to maintain his power, he is admament that the Shades are coming."

Cor shrugged a little at the words that came out of his own mouth. There was a time he would have met any challenge head on, now, maybe it was because he was now in his forth Decade he tended to think things through more clearly then he did when he was younger.

"I have a safe house set up for the Apprentices, it is in Nevarra at my ancestral family home, the people there are lower ranked members of the Gods teachings, i am going to have Aurelia moved there, i would offer the same for Marina and Julius. Just in case Fabius's concerns are founded, if they are going to hit and they will when they think we are at our weakest we need to be one step ahead." He passed some paper over "That is the time i will be sending Aurelia to Nevarra through the old tunnels so she isnt in the open. My half brother will be her guard with that,"

It was a sign of trust between the two men that Cor had confided in Nicodemus months ago about the existance of his southern Templar Half Brother. "When he is ready and free of whatever indoctrination the andrastians put in him, i will tell him what he needs to know, he is still recovering from his Lyrium withdrawal so it was best left for the moment."

The magister scoffed, the smile turning into a grimace as he heard the further plans of Cornelius. Shades? They were ghost stories, spread to haunt them away. Nicodemus had too much pride in him to submit to such stories.

"I will not send my apprentice away" he stated, refusing the paper that Cornelius tried to give him, by setting it aflame. "We won't flee for fairy tales. If they are real, I will deal with them personally and eradicate them from our earth. We have come too far to start cowering for rumors" Nicodemus spoke, determined he could deal with this. Marina's training had fared well and soon she would be a great priestess equal to take his position if something ever happened to him. That was why he had chosen her, to live on his legacy. That same legacy meant acting the part and picking up leadership rather than hiding.

It didn't surprise Cor that Nico didn't believe him, he was not sure he even believed it.

"Understood, but we have no High Priest at the moment, at least let me send Aurelia to you so that she maybe safe, just in case the Chantry and the Archon do something. I caught a Chantry spy in our ranks a few days ago so, something is brewing."

Cor picked his whisky up and sipped it, savouring the taste and lettng it warm his throat. He needed Aurelia to be safe, and with no High Priest and with whatever his instncts were screaming at him, he was going to be veyr very busy.

"She can't handle herself as well as Marina can Nicodemus, i would consider this a personal favour if you would allow it."

The safest place he could think of for Aurelia was with Nicodemus.

The magister let out a deep sigh, before placing the glass down. "Very well, Aurelia can stay with me for undetermined time. It will be good for Marina to be with someone of her own age. One who knows the truth of our world and is on equal footing with her. They might even learn something from one another." it meant even more than he could speak about in phrases. This could potentially form a new solid ground between their temples. The true Lusacan followers side by side to those of Toth,- splendid.

The relief that Cornelius felt was beyound words and he nodded his thanks. He might just be over cautious but in theory Aurelia was already the defacto High Priest. He turned his head as the girl that had escourted Nico came over and handed him a note, with a smile at Nico once more she went back to attending to the other guests.

"I wish your advice, if you will indulge me my friend. I have been seeing someone for a while now. Tell me Nicodemus, do you believe a man such as i is capable of being a husband?"

Nico had always been honest with him and it was something he was grateful for. With the plans he had in his mind, such advice from a man such as he would not go amiss.

"Pretty thing" he mumbled with a smile as the woman left once more. Almost unable to keep his eyes where they were supposed to be. "Advice? About being husband. Hmmm my marriage was arranged from the moment my fiance was born. We were destined for each other in order to join houses and produce an exceptional heir to my dynasty. Just like my parents had once done to bring me in this world. Being a husband isn't really something you are capable of, it is a mere title" a small teasing smile was on his face as he had solved the mystery in his mind.

"You ask your question wrong, you want to know whether you are capable of loving someone else. Do you love her? Does the very thought of her bring a smile to your face?"

Cor smirked a little "She does more than that my friend"

That was no lie, Helia made him feel alive and able to just be himself if that was even possible, He told Nico that she was someone he could discuss anything with and everything, within reason of course. He pointed to the portrait on the wall, the one he had recently done of her lounging on a chaise.

"Thats her" He nodded at the painting dominating the room "She is her own force of nature Nico. What she sees in me i have no idea but shes fun to be around, and she has more between her ears then just what dress or shoes should i wear for this."

He knew Nicos past the two men had shared a lot together over the years of knowing each other and it had opened the Lusacans eyes to the truth of the other cults. Not so brash and headstrong as he had been when he was younger and thought there were no consequences for his actions, now he knew different. He knew very different.

"I miss her when she is not around and i dont want to let her go when she is, does this make sense to you? because to me it makes me sound like a gshing Laetan or Sopperati" He scowled a little but it soon passed.

It was on the verge of being adorable how in love Cornelius was. That he was a big chunk of man that killed people kind of ruined the picture of adorable. "You my dear stalker of the night, just gave your own answer. Ask her, but make it special and personal. A way that she will remember forever and signifies what she is to you. We are not commoners after all." he quickly finished his drink all excited about this marriage plan of Cornelius.

"If you need a ring, I have contact with some of the best dwarven smiths in all of Thedas. I will put you in contact with them"

Cor raised his hand and shook his head "its fine my friend i have a ring for her byt thnakyou anyway"

Corneliues rubbed his nose a little and sat himself on a stool behind the bar refilling Nico's drink "I think maybe i can retire from the spy side of things, maybe take up some more serious duties within the temple." Cor allowed a wry smirk to cross his face "She's definatly one i want to go home to" He raised his glass "to new futures and the success of the gods" He clinked his glass against Nicos "Once this concern i have has proven unfounded i will look for a sutible High Priest for the great night lord and one that wont go aganst all that has been done"

Cornelieus surprised himself, not so long ago he would have stood beside Caius and done as was asked. Since becoming friends with Nicodemus his views had changed and he might have actually got a little more respect for himself. within th cults. "I'll send you an invite Nico cause i know how you love these occassions"

That all brought them to a more serious and important note to discuss. The magister leaned forward placing a hand on Cornelius his shoulder. As always the Toth priest radiated warmth, even in the middle of winter the snow would instantly melt around him when he passed by. The lusacan priest on the other hand felt so cold at times,- but this woman did seem to have melted the heart. "Is she one of us? Does she know about your faith?"

How long would he be able to hide it from her, or would she find out first. This was a hard part of relationships among the cultist. Their faith wasn't one that could be flaunted around unless in the company of a fellow follower.

"She knows i do not follow the Maker" Cor admitted, just how much more Helia knew he could not say "she knows i find comfort in other things, but she does not know what and i have not told her for she is not of the true faiths" he rubbed his jaw "maybe that is not a bad thing it will be, a refreshing change to be with someone who has her own view on the world. I do not think she follows the Maker either, i just know she is not one of us"

He appreciated Nico's interest. Latley those who he had been close too were wrapped up in other things or missing. "I have not put the papers in yet but i am legally adopting Aurelia, she needs someone to watch over her Nico, and i cannot do that as her bodyguard, as her father i can. So when i bring her to you please, treat her as if she were your own, do that for me my friend and i shall be in your debt."

Cor sipped his whisky and topped both his drink and Nico's up "do you think i should tell her my friend? or leave things as they lay?"
