"Sure. Please be quick, there's stuff out back that needs to be taken off heat soon."

Riley
Riley enters the inn and is enthusiastically greeted by red-haired girl, likely a teenager by appearance.

"Hello sir&#33; How can I help you?"

After hearing the stories from the others and Lissandras trepidations about Sam, Floyd is 100% convinced this poor beautiful enchanting woman had nothing to do with any of the weird occurrences around town. And after he spends the next while daydreaming about her uninviting aura, unfriendly gaze, and uncaring demeanor he elects to try and gain some more info in a more... grassroots strategy.

Is there a bar or a tavern anywhere within the immediate area I can head to? And if there is I'll go ahead and do that

"We can appreciate that... I guess our first question is, why has the local priest taken against you so much?"

"Good afternoon young woman&#33; Name's Riley Mccolough - should have a room reserved for me, though I'm not sure if it's under my name or not. At any rate, as I was wandering through town, I ran into the local Smith. We got to talkin', and apparently there's some people been thinkin that a woman 'round here is a demon or summat like that?"

Floyd
Floyd heads to the local tavern, which has only recently opened by the look of it. No other customers are present, and the barkeep is busy organizing various glass bottles on the wall behind the counter. In the corner, he sees a wanted poster with a sketch of his face on it. It looks like someone sketched more of a vague description of him than a proper detail-accurate portrait, but side-by-side with the real thing it's likely that someone would recognize him from the poster.

Lissandra/Pavel
"He's a traditional guy, and I'm a disfigured woman working for a blacksmith. It's only natural he'd hate me so much." Though her eyes still aren't visible, they definitely have not moved off of Pavel.

<hr />
Riley
"Oh, you must be one of the folks Mr. Winthorpe reserved for&#33;" She ducks under the desk for a few seconds and comes back up with a key. "First room upstairs," she says as she hands the key over. "I guess Reverend Sam finally made good on his threats to bring DSIB in on Lily, huh?"

"yeah... Way I see it, though, this is just a way for us to get paid without having to risk our skin for once, ya feel?" He said with a smile. "thank you for the key, ma'am, be seein' you around." the last few words were said over his shoulder, as he walked to the staircase... he had hoped she'd drop some more useful information. he'd have to hang around down there later for a bit, perhaps, see if he could glean anything.

Lissandra realises a key bit of prep she should have done before coming here, and decides to look up Succubi; specifically their identifying features, strengths and weaknesses in her notes.

"An unfortunate reality of the world we live in, I do sympathise with you for having to put up with such things. I do apologise for my rudeness, we must be thorough in these things - while I check these I also wanted to ask you some more details about the wolf attack you experienced - while I appreciate it's a traumatic experience, could you describe the beast to me in as much detail as you are able?

Also, have either of you ever had encounters with the supernatural before? As I am new to this town I want to get a feel for the regularity of such encounters.

Perhaps also we can do a bit of business - I am in the market for some small side arm if we could agree on a reasonable price? "

Pavel reaches out with his hand, intending to shake that of of Lily:"My name is Jeremy btw, don't mind my friend asking all those questions, she can be like that."

Riley
"No problem at all. Have a good day, sir&#33;"

The room isn't anything special: a small bed, a desk, and a window. Good enough to sleep in, but not much else.

<hr />
Lissandra/Pavel
Lissandra's notes on succubi outline a few of their key characteristics. The presence of one in a town can quickly be determined by rapid overnight disappearances of men, and one in human form is often charming or clever enough to shift suspicions away from itself. Human form succubi are often described as beautiful, with a voice often compared to that of a singing siren at sea - in that last regard, Lily definitely doesn't fit the bill.

Lily stares at Pavel's hand for a while before reaching out with her good arm and accepting the handshake.

"I think I should answer the second question first - Barney, could you cover the forge for a few minutes?"

"Aye&#33;" With that, Barnabas heads out the back door into the noisy work area, leaving Lily, Lissandra, and Pavel to themselves.

"So... Sam's not entirely barking up the wrong tree. There haven't been any new demons since I got here, and there's a reason for that which I've been terrified to tell anyone about lest some nut like Sam try to murder me over it. Promise me that what I'm about to tell you doesn't leave this room."

"I vow that I shall not reveal your secret, and what's more, as long as I am satisfied that you are innocent of the charges bought against you, I will do everything within my ability to protect you from people like Sam"

Lissandra/Pavel
"Very well... here goes.

"You're familiar with how demons gain their power on Earth, aren't you? First they arrive as abstract spirits, looking for a conscious mind as a suitable host. Then, possession. And if they can hold the possession and collect their magical energies long enough, they take over the body and reach their true - hellish - form. I've become too familiar with the process since I moved here. You see... it seems the abstract spirit demons like my mind quite a bit. But when they try to possess me, they... well, they get stuck. Locked in my mind, but unable to take over. They just sit there screaming at me, day and night, to let them out. And when particularly powerful ones try to possess me... they take their toll."

Lily lifts the cover on her left arm up, revealing a misshapen hand with abnormally long fingers. "My first encounter with a high demon - I thought I was going to die on the spot. And that's not the only one." She brushes her hair out of her face and smiles, showing eyes with deep, bloody red where there should be white, and two rows of small, pointy teeth. "I look like a fiend now&#33; I can't walk around like this. I can't live a normal life like this. And if Sam were to find out, he'd have me burned alive." For the first time, she actually moves her mouth and shows emotion while talking, letting her teeth show. "The wolf attack was a lie - I came back to Clarkson with my arm all bandaged up and people started asking me what happened, and I knew I couldn't tell them, and I panicked. I'm wondering if I should have even told you now..."

"This is a terrible burden you endure, I cannot guarantee I will be able to help, but perhaps I kind find some way of improving things&#33;"

Lissa checks her notes for the following:

- Any references to a similar "demon trap" person.
- Any devices it may be possible to make to block further demonic intrusions.
- The practicality of exorcising some or all of the demons stuck in there.

Lissandra/Pavel
Lissa finds mention of a "vessel", a person with a condition that makes them exhibit such traits as Lily has described. The handwriting gets tighter and overly curly after a few sentences before trailing off into a line and running off the page - it would seem that she fell asleep whilst writing this this section of her notes.

"Oh, thank you, thank you&#33; Please don't tell anyone though, especially not Sam. If you need me to do anything just let me know. Oh, you said something about a sidearm before, didn't you? We have a few ready in the back. The people who ordered them cancelled at the last second when they realized they would have to come to the demon attack capital of the region to pick them up."

Lissandra racks her memories to see if she can remember anything more about this while she goes to look at the side arms.

"I have located something of a lead, but it is unfortunately a slim one as it stands - could you perhaps fill me in a bit on the experience or the process of this happening to you? How was this time different from when it happened before?"

Lissandra/Pavel
While Lissa tries to remember anything she can about vessels, Lily presents her with three sidearms:

-A muzzle-loading flintlock pistol. Single shot, short range, but very reliable. An engraving on the bottom of the grip reads "Happy Birthday John." - 8 silver

-An almost identical-looking pistol that Lily describes as a mini-rifle. Apparently it was commissioned by a hunter who didn't like how big proper rifles were. Still single shot, but more effective than the other pistol at long range. - 14 silver

-A very weird-looking pistol with six barrels for six shots, and a shotgun mode that can fire all six barrels at once. It's accompanied by a very thick instruction manual and a multitude of warning labels. - 2 silver

Each comes with 12 rounds of the appropriate size ammunition.

Lissa remembers that the next thing she was going to write before falling asleep was that witches would sometimes claim to be vessels if their own magic backfired on them, as the deformities are similar and there's no way to medically tell them apart. They're quickly found out the moment a demon arrives in the area.

"I'm not sure what you mean - there's a new one every week or so, it's just the really powerful ones that do... this. It's usually like I just wake up one morning with a new voice up there, but the high demons cause excruciating pain. They don't like getting stuck in there, I suppose."
