Sorin Hildebrand got back to the cabal to tell them information passed on by the Cult of Ecstasy. Starshine performed some scrying spells and was able to determine the ‘blonde man’ from the Kathy Price murder was an Awakened Mage by the name of Lawrence. He was subservient to Liam and most likely Liam’s apprentice. Lawrence was unknown to the Awakened community as far as Sunshine or Sorin were aware.
The cabal headed to the advocacy offices of Valerie Beauchamp in order to speak with her about the Kathy Price murder and the Sisters of Hippolyta’s interests in it. Valerie told the cabal about a group known as the Club of Men that had been a long term concern of theirs. The Club of Men were a group of wealthy people in the Rosedale neighborhood. The Club primarily is old money members, but some new money have been welcomed into the fold as well. They participate in drug trafficking, human smuggling, and the abduction, rape, and often murder of children. They target both boys and girls between ages 10 to 15, but the outcomes differ based on gender. Girls do not survive their abductions. Boys survive, but with their memories hazy. In one case, a victim was known to have joined the Club, but that person is now dead. The abducted victims come from various circles throughout the city. The Kathy Price murder was the first one that was done with a theatrical display. Aside from the ritualistic stabbings, the rest of the target selection and torture patterns fit the Club’s pattern of behaviour. Valerie provided the cabal with a list of victims previously accosted by the Club of Men, as well as their coroner’s reports.
After their meeting with Valerie, the cabal got in touch with Sorin again and told him they wanted to move on Liam and take him into custody before evidence could be lost or others could be hurt. Gathering some other mages to form an assault group of overwhelming force, the cabal took Liam and Lawrence into custody without incident.
