You all load up into the car and start heading back to Dr. Finch's.

Along the way, you check on Dr. Finch. He is fine, and almost home himself.

You check on Macland. He and his scarred guard are heading back to Macland's hotel room, from the looks of it. Macland looks disoriented, but is otherwise fine.

You all introduce yourselves to Caius, and you start to explain the devil/goddess situation to him. You get about halfway into it before he cuts you off, waving a hand at you.

"Wheezer's a psycho, got it. Coulda guessed."

You leave out most of the details, but you sum up the situation--that the lot of you have been dragged into some weird pseudo-conspiracy involving Macland Row, a cult, the Tobu CyberBrain hack, and likely a number of other people in power. Caius nods.

"I'll drop ya a fat hint, then. Gesenai Shirai."

You turn toward him, recognizing the name--Shirai was one of the names that Prophet mentioned.

"Gotcher attention, dinnit? Legally, she owns Club Elegance. She and Mackey are thick as thieves, so the place is his playground, but it's her name on the paperwork. My contract belongs to Ms. Shirai, but if Mackey's waist deep in this dog turd then she's gotta be right there with 'em."

You ask what Caius' disposition is toward Gesenai and Macland.

"Tha fuck's a disposition?"

You ask him how he feels about them.

"My feeling is that I just spent a third of my life tied to a metal beam, chattin' 'er up with some gas masked slasher film reject. My feeling is that Mackey's face should get better acquainted with a curb."

I LOVE HIM.

tell him that if he wants to stick with us, we can try and make that happen. he certainly can't go back to work, at this rate. we'd just have to rescue him from another stupid warehouse full of more stupid junkie cultists. once again, the option to leave is there. we can drop him at a train station in the morning if he really wants to leave. sounds like he might just be alright with sticking around.

Okay, less fangirl!Rufi, more practical!Rufi: Caius seems pretty okay. If everyone else is okay with it too, I guess we might as well regroup back at Dr. Finch's and get treated. I'm sure Fuse's thigh needs proper treating as well. And now we got more info on Gesenai Shirai, so that's a good place to start figuring things out, if Dr. Finch needs a leg-up on where to start with that.
