After Syl left the real Doctor she left to see some other Doctor. Anyway, I headed to the library to try and find out more about Li Anvil. I poured over old and new tomes for hours, by the time I stopped I could barely awake. By one o’clock in the morning I had come to a few possibilities. One, he was a pentacle Mage that had branched into multiple spheres, as I myself have done. Two, a insignificant slave to the ancient Exarchs, a Seer of the Throne. Or a member of the Timori, a Banisher. I have a suspicion that it is one of the later two.
In the morning I, Angelina was still in the same place as ever. I got some funny looks when from construction workers when I left her. When I arrived at Syl’s place, there was an Australian there. He said I looked like a Doctor, but that couldn’t be right. I offered him a Jelly baby, which he accepted. I like him, Syl introduced him as Elatha. It turns out he is a Mage wandering by the winds of chance and fate has led him to Syl’s doorstep last night.
We got Elatha up to speed on the missing girl, Tanya Mison. disappearance, the previous four children disappearing, the church’s origins and the old Wilkes farm in the area, that was one of the first references to this creature. We covered the most recent We decided to check the town plans to see if the old Home stead from the Wilkes farm, to check where abouts it was in relation to the current city. After many long hours, only distracted occasionally by porn, I found out that the Wilkes Homestead was burnt down and the church was built on top of the remains. The church of course was burnt down later and Glenpark Preschool was built on top of those remains. There is a lot of history at that location and whatever is taking the children has been at it for a long time. While searching the history of the farm I also found out that Ed Wilkes, after his niece’s disappearance got drunk and beat the remaining members of his family to death in a drunken rage. This lead to a town lynching, the town’s people marched on the homestead and burnt it to the ground. The Ed Wilkes was burnt to death inside his home.
I have come to a conclusion that whatever is taking the children is just going after them. It is punishing their parents for their bad parenting. Three of the five we know have all been jailed, another has had his wrists slashed, and even the abusive drunk Ed Wilkes was lynched. I know that at the farm the youngest daughter was taken, and the oldest ended up in care, she was saved from the fate of the rest of her family. I feel it would be good to find out if any of the recent five missing children had any siblings.
While I was working on Syl’s computer, Syl took Elatha to see the local area. They brought me back soe food before heading to the preschool to have another look around at night. When they came back, they let me know that they found pictures Tanya had drawn. They were of the slim man, but there was also some by a thirteen year old, mentally deficient boy. This creature seems to have been known to Tanya for a while before it took her. Syl seems worried about Mrs Mison, so she and Elatha headed around to her place after midnight, despite me pointing out the futility of that endeavor. I headed back to Angelina. I’ll catch up with them in the morning.
