“A lot of fuss over a demon group, isn't it?” Gabrielle said by way of greeting, in a low, hoarse sounding voice. She shifted forward in her seat and raked a hand through to dark hair. “It's a bit much, to be honest.”
Anastasia stood up. She walked in front of the table, looked at the full amphitheatre and put her hands behind her back and drew herself up into a n official speaker stance.
“Alright, now that you're all here, we can begin. You may be wondering why there's so few of you here. We have called only the Watch members based in this area, as it seems to be an issue contained only to Washington sector, and we're hoping to solve this before it spreads to another sector.”
Constantine tapped a key on the laptop then stood up to join. The projector screen filled with statistics on one side, and a list of names on the others.
“As you may already have noticed, several members of Greywatch and Blackwatch have gone missing in the last few weeks. Most of them have been accounted for as being... casualties of war,” Constantine said with a grimace, “However, some have not been found, and of the ones that we have found....”
He looked back at Ursula, who was still sitting at the table. She leant over and tapped another key. The projector flicked to an image of a body, slumped against a wall. Most of the skin had been torn away in ragged ribbons, making it impossible to tell what age or even gender this person had been,though there were clear barbed wire markings on what was left. It was the classic signs of a 'barbed wire demon' exiting a body it had possessed. The person was still clad in partial Greywatch uniform.
Ursula stood up and squared her shoulders.
“They are trying to possess us. And they are succeeding.”
"Without heroes we are all plain people and don't know how far we can go."
