What's been Nivellius's attitude since we've got here? Anything we would've noticed?

Arrival at Cerrus
Nivellius has been uncharacteristically quiet since entering the palace, and has been tapping away at a dataslate since you first addressed the Governor. Had it not been for the lack of augments, you would have mistaken him for Lhari. As if he noticed you thinking about him, Nivellius looks up and addresses the governor. "Lord Governor, if I may be so bold, do you happen to know what the Administratum was working on in the month prior to this, ah, situation?"

Heimgarten strokes his beard in contemplation. "To be blunt, no, I try to leave their day to day business alone. I can attempt to find out, but I'm uncertain how much they'll tell me directly, and asking the other cities' chapters for help will take time."

"You think perhaps they might tell a fellow Administratus?" Nivellius' typical smug aura palpably returns.

"Well yes, I suppose next you'll tell me that you happen to be one yourself?" The Governor sighs and gives Nivellius a bemused look. "I should have guessed."

"Yes he likes to tell everyone he meets." Alyss says half-mocking, half-teasing Nivellius. She turns back to the governor. "What of the Ecclesiarchy? Were they working on anything of note?"

"Working on? No, although they were expecting a holy relic to be shipped in from off world. If they received it early, I wasn't informed, and it hasn't come to our spaceport since they left the city - I've had all flights diverted. You got in because of a hunch I had." He nods at Quintus. "He had orders to gun you down if you weren't here to help."

While he had been standing stoically nearby this entire time, Quintus crosses his arms and gives you a small smile. "I'm glad I didn't have to attempt that, I doubt it would have ended well."

Uncharacteristically during this entire this entire conversion Domonia has kept to herself with her head bowed with her hat covering her eyes as to avoid showing anyone them. Something about the governor felt off and she wasn't sure if his words could be trusted, so she did what she always does in these circumstances which molest her targets' minds for information.

After several failed attempts to break into to the governor's mind, a faint breeze blows past her and her allies, and everyone gets the feeling that somewhere in the galaxy something unfortunate just happened. There are no windows or open doors in the room.

Quintus looks around suspiciously and walks over to a vent, waving his hand over it. With a frown and a shrug, he walks over to the Governor and whispers something in his ear.

Alyss looks around, at the door which didn't open,then toward the vents where Quintus was, then for any windows which she does not see. She gives a side glance at Domonia then turns back to the governor. "Right then. We'll drop off our things and then get to work. Is there a place where we can drop our things and rest our heads?"

Sending a telepathic message to Alyss (I'm pretty sure Mr. Mook caught that one)

(Yes that was quite unfortunate. Luckily the Governor doesnt know how much of a talker you are yet so that may be our saving grace.) Alyss thinks to herself, believing Domonia will pick it up.

Alyss would also like to make a perception check to see if she can pick up what Quintus said to the Governor.

Rolled an 8/30 for perception, which is 2 degrees of success for Alyss for that stat.

While you couldn't make out all of it, you caught the gist. Quintus has a bad gut feeling, but he can't tell as to why.

The governor nods at Quintus. "Put them in the guest quarters."

"I'm afraid I don't have much to offer in way of equipment support, but you brought your own transport, yes?"

"Yes we should be able to get around on our own. Thank you, Lord Governor. We will keep you posted should we learn anything significant."

Quintus walks over near the doors, and manipulates an electronic pad mounted on the wall. The doors open, and he indicates that you should follow him. He guides you through the labyrinthine halls, until you see a dark-skinned, middle aged woman muttering to herself. Quintus gives her a short wave. "Good day, Almirah. The Lord Governor needs us to lodge these guests of his."

Almirah gives him a surly look. "Aye, well, fortunately for His Lordship, empty rooms are one of the few things we have plenty of at the moment." She sighs, and gives you a small smile and a short bow. You notice several scars on her face. "I apologize, such behavior in front of such honored guests reflects poorly upon our hospitality. I am Almirah, steward to Lord Heimgarten."

Alyss returns the smile. "Greetings steward. I am Alyss Vance and these are my associates, Cromwell, Domonia, Lhari, Nivellius and Uroch. It's no trouble, we both want this pathetic conflict to be resolved. The Emperor's light will be brighter here soon enough. She gestures to each of her comrades as she introduces them.

"Since before he and Quintus decided to get soft and live here in luxury." She gives Quintus a teasing look. "My insubordinate jabs at him aside, I couldn't ask for a better leader. Emperor knows I wouldn't be here were it not for him."

Domonia gives an exaggerated yawn, stretching her arms above her head. "Enough with this booooring drivel. How about we talk about something more enjoyable, for example, like how I haven't been able to have a good glass of wine in weeks.  What does the lord keep in his stores?"

"Oh Please, darling, I'm from House Sadistivus. I'm not going to drink something unless I can confirm it's quality first. Personally, I'd like a chance to peruse the wares myself if you can find someone to escort me."

Before she can reply, Nivellius seizes the opportunity. "I seriously doubt she's heard of such a minor house." He laughs condescendingly.

Almirah does her best to remain composed. "I'm certain the Lord Governor would be more than happy to allow you the pick of the cellar, we're unfortunately short on staff at the moment though. Perhaps you would like something made here on Utrecht, as a sample of our hospitality?"

Rolling her eyes and tilting her head towards Nivellius, "Nevi-boi, I've never heard of your family name. Are you sure you're actually a highborn and not some overly ambitious pretender."

(Darling is trying to hide it, but she's definitely frustrated with this entire situation. It's probably not the best idea to push her too much more, at least, for the time being.)

Tilting her head back to Almorah and sighing, Oh well Darling, I guess that's to be expected when everyone seems to want to kill each other. I'll accept the offer and try one of the local delicacies in the meantime."

*Cromwell shakes himself from the deep contemplative silence he's been in.

(All these nobles. Waving around their ancestry like a bunch of young punks trying to figure out whose piece is bigger. I'm not much use here. I'll let the girls take point so long as there's fine china involved. Tomorrow, I'm going to go try to find some friends...)

Alyss looks at her chrono. "If we're done with this boring noble talk, we should proceed. Just like we do I'm sure the steward has other duties to attend to other than stand all day a gab with guests."
