RN - Jake McCormik
A - Agent Smith
Chad had brought his
client to the steak house at the Bellagio. They were enjoying their dinner when suddenly the windows were broken in and smoke canisters got tossed inside. Smoke covered the room quickly, but then it strangely got blown out the windows; the lights were still off so they couldn't see. Chad dove under the table as the smell of blood permeated the room. His animal side took over and he left his client behind, sprinting for the door.
At the door, Chad ran into Quinn from the firm -- somehow seeing him allowed Chad to get a hold of himself and he went back to grab his client and get her out of the place. Out of nowhere, a steak knife hits her -- the flat end, luckily. The lights come on, Chad directs the client back to Quinn.
With the lights on, Chad can see a were-dog grappling what looks like a were-cat, which is frozen in place. There are lots of people injured, when miraculously most of them instantly heal -- at the same moment Chad's blood starts boiling. He keeps cool; obviously the effect is coincident with some sort of life magic or something, and now's not the time to escalate.
The were-dog shifted back to human form, but the were-cat was paralyzed. There was some sort of altercation between the police and some other people -- somebody who looks like an agent suddenly got frozen in place. The cops and some other fellow were talking about "Miranda"; seems she'd gone missing.
The police debriefed Chad for about two and a half hours, which was trying because these two guys who were arguing with the cop start fighting with each other, very loudly -- jurisdiction or something. Chad overheard that Elliot Sanbourne (the Prince!) is dead. Chad scanned the room and noticed another vampire -- Paul -- and made sure he'd heard too. They quickly set off to the Venetian to see what was going on.
