Tybalt Redfern awoke in utter darkness, after what seemed like an endless time spent out cold. He shifted slightly, then finding that he was tied up; not cruelly, but securely, with a rope that try as he might, he could not break free from. This seemed to rule out Janeseh, who would never bother with restraints. Why would he, when he knew he could control Ty without the need for them?

The pattern after an attack by Janeseh always followed the same lines for Ty. He'd go off, into the rougher parts of the megacity, and try to rid himself of the hateful memories by any means possible. It was getting harder and harder for Ty to be able to deal with the abuse, and once he'd attempted to break free from it by telling Janeseh that he wasn't going to put up with it any more, and that Janeseh would have to find another victim. Janeseh had responded by saying that if that was going to be the case, then he'd have to seek out Ty's little brother, Macbeth.

Of course, Ty could not let that happen; he'd never be able to live with himself if he knew that he'd let that monster loose on his brother. So instead, he tried to live with the abuse. This was something new, tho. Ty struggled futilely in his bonds, but could not break loose. There was someone else who had captured him, and he didn't know who it was, or what their plans for him were.

Lupe walked down the street, all her senses on alert. These senses were more sensitive than those of a human, which was natural for a werewolf. Lupe lived in a part of Zion which had many were families living closely together; her own family, which consisted of her parents and older brother also lived there. Like her, Lupe's brother Dolph was part of Greywatch, which was concerned with the defence of the megacity. This suited both of them; neither of the siblings would have liked to be idle.

The werewolf checked her watch and quickened her pace. There had been a summons to Headquarters; something about a new demon group forming, and all the watches were asked to attend the meeting. Of course, it wouldn't be her or any of her group who went after the demons. That was reserved for the Nightwatch group. And there were a few members of that group who were skilled in dealing with such an issue.

One was Othello, who was a pact bearer. This was something which had been passed down from his father; his father Mordred had made a deal for power and immortality, and had been turned into a vampire like creature, as had his wife. There was also Gabrielle, who Lupe knew slightly. If she was to be honest, she'd prefer it if Gabrielle was sent on the mission. In any case, there was no use in worrying about it now she had reached the Headquarters. Lupe walked up the stairs and entered the building.
