 "Well uh, I don't really make tools for "investigating" murders here and I'm busy anyway. But, if you place an order, don't get in the way of my customers and don't mind the sound or heat then sure, ask away."

 

A woman of true business.  There was something Dmitri respected about it, but at the same time, he was a little hesitant to loosen money from his wallet.  But one had to spend money, to earn money.  And if he wanted his questions answered, he was going to have to put his money where his quest was.  Dmitri put an order in for one steel dagger, and leaned on the counter as close to the steelworker as possible.  The heat was quite intense, and his brow started to sweat, but it wasn't anything he couldn't handle.  

 

"As I said, I'm here currently investigating the murder of a young elven woman not far from here.  There has been a growing number of these murders, all with the same method.  We believe these women might have been cut open by a exquisitely sharp bladed weapon.  I was wondering if you had sold any sort of weapon to an individual you would deem...odd?  Of course, if you have, I'm sure there won't be any consequences of them purchasing it from here."

Ajalon

 

Once Ajalon asked her questions, the man turned back to the golem and exclaimed, "Aha! That's just the mystery isn't it!? Or is it the obvious truth!? Quite the conundrum, I'd say." The man nodded his head, before saying, "but if you ask me, it's because a town is only as safe as its big brother is. Or, what its big brother is, rather! And the big brother of Big Tree doesn't have wings! Or pointy ears, for that matter. The pointy eared winged people have their own big brother for a reason on a different continent for a reason, after all! I haven't the faintest idea who did it. Maybe it was you?! Or was it me!? No, it wasn't me. And it couldn't have been you. They were much shorter."

The man looked around, his eyes darting from place to place as he leaned in closer. "I didn't see the killer, but I saw the woman before she died, and the crowd did not have a man of your stature in it! And another thing! I saw the woman's body  but I saw neither flash of silver nor steel before then! Perhaps it was magic steel! Or invisible silver! Which would still be magic...hmmm. Well, I haven't the faintest. But don't tell anyone I told you that. Everybody is watching." The man gave one more nod, before he started to back away from Ajalon making strange noises as he did so.

 

Ajalon thought for a moment, at first more confused than when they had begun to ask questions, but those last few statements did answer some questions. The man claimed to not see any blades or knives, and Ajalon had come to know those as the primary means that a person would maybe kill another person. Maybe the blade was concealed? The more Ajalon thought about the issue, the more their head began to hurt from the confusion. They needed someone who knew more about this, and turned to see where their guildmates were.

 

Just as Ajalon turned around to look, they caught sight of the tails of Dmitri's coat as he made his way away from the crime scene. "Ah!" Ajalon started, intent on getting his attention but was ultimately too late. They followed where he had gone, but the further they got from the crime scene the thicker the crowds became, and the thicker the crowds became the harder it was to keep track of the guildmate.

 

Eventually, turning down a street, Ajalon finally heard Dmitri's voice coming from a blacksmith's shop and turned to see the guildmate talking to blacksmith. They couldn't heard much of the conversation, but the words "exquisitely sharp blade" caught their magical golem ears. Ajalon entered the blacksmith's shop and was about to express these findings, but saw that Dmitri and the blacksmith were already in the middle of a discussion and fell silent from fear of being rude and interrupting.

The woman continued to hammer away at the piece of metal before her, saying, "odd individuals? Buddy I don't know if you realize where you're at. This is the city of adventurers, I get weirdos here all the time." She gave a brief pause as she heard the door open again, seeing the large masked man with two swords walk into her shop. Giving a short gesture, she said, "case in point." Going back to her smith work, the woman continued, "honestly I'd be more concerned if the person buying from me wasn't a bit odd. But, let's see." Her pace slowed as she thought a bit.

 

With a resounding smash on the metal as her expression lit up she said, "oh yeah, if you're looking for someone who cuts things with sharp blades and is bit uh, on the eccentric side you can probably check out the butcher across the street. He's a pretty frequent customer," her expression soured a bit as she said, "but treats his blades like crap." She smashed her hammer harder on her current project. "I swear that man goes through blades faster than I do a bushel of apples." The girl then looked back to Geo asking, "well, anything more? Oh, and hello there customer, what can I get for you today?" She turned towards Ajalon, asking this.

Ajalon

 

Ajalon entered into the smithy, not exactly sure what they expected but the expectations they did have did not extend terribly far past average smithing practices, but was pleased to see their guildmate was, indeed, there. "Case in point," a woman hammering away at a piece of metal announced once Ajalon passed through the threshold of the door. "Honestly I'd be more concerned if the person buying from me wasn't a bit odd. But, let's see." Her pace slowed for a moment, and Ajalon stood there, shifting awkwardly as they wondered what the conversation was about and if it was directed at them.

Soon, however, the blacksmith's eyes lit up. "Oh yeah, if you're looking for someone who cuts things with sharp blades and is bit uh, on the eccentric side you can probably check out the butcher across the street. He's a pretty frequent customer, but treats his blades like crap." She smashed her hammer harder on her current project. "I swear that man goes through blades faster than I do a bushel of apples." The girl then looked back to Geo asking, "well, anything more? Oh, and hello there customer, what can I get for you today?" She turned towards Ajalon, asking this.

 

Ajalon stood quietly for a split second, and then realized the question was directed at them. "Oh! I apologize but my equipment is not made of metallic materials and does not require the skill of a blacksmith. I was actually looking for my colleague regarding the case we are currently working. Sorry to interrupt!" Ajalon thought for a moment, and remembered the blacksmith saying something about a "very sharp blade" and realized that the conversation may have just been about that. "I just finished speaking with the very nervous and peculiar man at the crime scene, and, well, most of what he said was very confusing for me and I'm afraid that I cannot make terribly much sense of what they were speaking of, but, oh! He mentioned that he was there when the crime was committed and said that he distinctly remembers there being no flash of silver or metal, and never saw a blade being used!"

 

Ajalon paused for a moment, realizing how much they were talking. "So, um, that is to say, I think the murderer may have used magic? Or perhaps a more discreet tool?"

Dmitri wasn't getting anywhere here.  He was being talked in circles...that was until Ajalon arrived.  

 

"I just finished speaking with the very nervous and peculiar man at the crime scene, and, well, most of what he said was very confusing for me and I'm afraid that I cannot make terribly much sense of what they were speaking of, but, oh! He mentioned that he was there when the crime was committed and said that he distinctly remembers there being no flash of silver or metal, and never saw a blade being used!"

 

So that meant...

 

 "So, um, that is to say, I think the murderer may have used magic? Or perhaps a more discreet tool?"

 

The sudden realization made Dmitri smack his head.  Of course it must've been magic!  Some sort of magic that produces a grizzly end product was a dangerous type of magic indeed.  It was certainly something not to be trifled with.  Dmitri nodded at Ajalon.  

 

"I'm not sure if we can totally go by the evidence of a...nervous and peculiar man...but truthfully it's all we have."  Dmitri started to walk out of the smithy, when he turned around to the smith herself.  "I'll be back for that dagger."  And as he concluded his statement, he walked out, waiting for Ajalon to follow.  Once he caught up, Dmitri would explain his thought process.  "Seeing as how we have no other leads besides this place being where the victim was last seen coming from, and that the perp probably uses some sort of slicing magic, we should ask the prominent members of the market what they saw.  We have no other evidence, so I was thinking of asking the butcher next if he saw anyone fascinated with the carving of meat and flesh...of animals of course!"  At least he hoped so.  "Maybe someone who stares at the blood too much, you know?  A psycho fascinated with what he could do to people.  We should split up again.  It'll make this go two times faster."  It would've been three times...but Dmitri was already forgetting why it wouldn't be.  Dmitri pat Ajalon on the head and headed towards the Butcher.  "Good luck!"  He said, waving towards the golem. 

 

As he arrived at the butcher, he opened the door and gave his reporting statement of sorts. 

 

"Hello!  I'm with the guild Cherry Heart investigating a murder that happened not far from here.  Have you seen anyone suspicious roaming around the market place, following people?  Or maybe someone who's interested a little too much in your craft?"

As the group left the blacksmith she merely waved to them saying, "don't worry, I'll have it done in no time. And you," she pointed to Ajalon, "order something next time." 

 

As Dmitri made his way to the butcher's shop, he would find it to be much less warm then the blacksmith's shop. It was far larger with much more people crowding around, a constant flow of people coming in and going. His usual greeting would either be drowned out by the loud crowd that had been within the shop or simply met with strange looks from some of the other customers. Some also giving him a knowing look, nodding as they conversed about their own past guild jobs. There was , a long line of people moving towards the counter ordering whatever types of meat they wished to get, while there was an equally steady flow of people leaving with their goods in hand.

 

He would have to wait in line for awhile before he would be able to be helped, but when he got to the front, he was merely given a strange look by the man at the front. He was informed that the man was not the actual butcher, but instead just the clerk to get orders moving, but when given the severity of his situation he decided to bring him into the back. The back, as it was, made up the majority of the building, being filled with flayed carcasses either hanging up on hooks, propped up on stands or put in large vats of water. There were also a large quantity of bodies that were far less mutilated merely resting on tables. Front and center though, he was greeted by the sight of a large man decked out in a very heavy long sleeved outfit wearing a very un-fiitingly small apron. 

 

In his hand was a large meat cleaver, as he happily hacked away at what appeared to be a large pig carcass. As his work was interrupted, he turned to face Dmitri, and listened to his questions. His expression seemed to be knowing as he said, "I know nothing of the murder that happened. Merely that it was sweet woman who was killed. Such a shame indeed. But I will have you not suspecting my craft. I am butcher, not murder! I teach butchering not murdering, isn't that right Harvey!" 

 

As he said this, a man with pointed ears and jet black wings appeared from behind a curtain of chickens, a cleaver in his hand and a curious expression across his face. "What's that boss?" 

 

"Come Harvey, speak to nice man here, he has many questions to ask about craft and murder!" He looked back to Dmitri saying, "this young boy here is my newest of apprentices, Harvey! He is sweet boy, eager to help around and quick to," he punctuated his sentence with a quick slash of his cleaver into the carcass he had been working on earlier.

Ajalon

 

"Maybe someone who stares at the blood too much, you know? A psycho fascinated with what he could do to people. We should split up again. It'll make this go two times faster." Dmitri patted Ajalon on the head, and Ajalon felt a wave of satisfaction with the progress that they had accomplished. "Good luck!"

 

With that, Dmitri walked out the door, leaving Ajalon with the blacksmith. "don't worry, I'll have it done in no time. And you," The Blacksmith said, and then pointed to Ajalon, "order something next time."

 

Soon the wave of satisfaction was replaced with the dawning realization of what Dmitri had said, and the confusion that followed with not knowing what Ajalon's next goal was, combined with the light, nervous shame of having not provided any additional business for the Blacksmith. "Ah, wait, what is it that you would have--" Ajalon had started to say, but Dmitri had already long gone from the shop. Ajalon turned to the Blacksmith and gave a short bow. "I apologize for the inconvenience. When next I am in need of sustenance I will be sure to browse and purchase any of your refuse materials that are meant for discarding. Thank you for your time!"

 

In a hurry, and without any plan, Ajalon left the Blacksmith's shop and continued down the street. If the murderer had used magic to commit such an act, then that would narrow down any possibilities, wouldn't it? Just consider anyone who would know enough magic to perform such an act and there would be a list of suspects right there! However, upon thinking of the Cherry Heart guild and the sheer size of the town, Ajalon realized that such a course of action would only be a waste of time. With no other ideas, the golem made its way back to the scene of the crime, with their eyes peeled for any suspicious individuals along the way.

"I know nothing of the murder that happened. Merely that it was sweet woman who was killed. Such a shame indeed. But I will have you not suspecting my craft. I am butcher, not murder! I teach butchering not murdering, isn't that right Harvey!" 

 

Dmitri laughed nervously.  He wondered in that moment how the animals saw it...but the meat looked delectable.  Truly it was a hard trade-off.  

 

"What's that boss?" 

 

A young boy with jet black wings appeared from the back.  He held the fresh corpse of a chicken, along with a cleaver.  Dmitri recoiled a bit, but nodded in greetings.  

 

"Come Harvey, speak to nice man here, he has many questions to ask about craft and murder!" He looked back to Dmitri saying, "this young boy here is my newest of apprentices, Harvey! He is sweet boy, eager to help around and quick to."  

 

"Ah, I see.  Pleasure to meet your acquaintance, Harvey was it?"  Dmitri nodded once again.  "I'm Dmitri, current representative of Cherry Heart.  If you would be so kind as to answer a few of my questions, I'll be on my way."  Dmitri approached Harvey, and ushered him into the back from whence he came.  The place smelled of blood, and strange odors arose from every nook and cranny.  Dmitri cringed at the smells, but tried to keep a steady and calm demeanor.  "Now, seeing as you're a newcomer to the city, you're not used to all of the normal things that occur in the market.  I've been searching for any possible leads on the murderer at hand...he followed a lady from this very market, all the way down the road.  I was wondering if you had taken a glance at any suspicious activity by happenstance."  This whole time, he hadn't noticed, but Dmitri had been holding his breath as he talked.  Sadly, he had to take another breath in, and with that the smells and taste of death and decay.  Anyone who could stomach this...or enjoy it, was definitely suspicious.  His eyes kept close in on Harvey, waiting for a reply.

"Oh, oh man geez, oh. Oh man. A murder? That's some serious stuff mister." Harvey seemed to grow a bit more concerned as Dimitri began to talk to him about the murders at hand. After he had finished his statement and question, Harvey suddenly went wide eyed as he said, "oh that murder. Well, Mister, let me see if I can remember anything. It's a bit hard for me to think about customers, since I'm here in the back and all. You know," he waved his own cleaver around. "But, I don't recall Selia talking about anyone weird around her the past few days. Hmmm," he seemed to become pensive, before a look of realization crossed his face, swinging his cleaver to the side in excitement as a result, harmlessly against a wall. "So like, like like, so right! Dennen, you know the guy up front, he works there a lot. And on my break like, 3 days ago, he was telling me about this one weirdo, a weird one at that. And like, this weirdo, he kept coming to the shop but like, never ordered anything. Just kind of stood there. And he apparently did that for awhile, like more than a minute. A few days I think? Maybe longer, I don't know." Thinking on it more he said, "but, other than that, I can't think of anything like, way to super weird or anything."

 

As Ajalon made his way back to the scene of the crime, the man would notice that the woman Dmitri had talked to and the man he had talked to were both gone now. The man Reina had briefly questioned seemed to have returned back to his slumber, the woman herself being no where in sight, and the two guards on duty seemed to be a bit bored. While there were more passerby's walking by, they didn't seem to think much of the scene of the crime. "Welcome back." The golem would see Luvaya, who had also stayed there, tip her hat towards him with a smile on her face. "How goes the investigation?"

Ajalon

 

"Welcome back." Ajalon glanced around in surprise until they spotted Luvaya standing around the crime scene. "How goes the investigation?"

 

"Ah, well we learned some things about the murder," Ajalon started, wracking their memories for what they had discovered so far. "We determined that the murder was very likely done by a magical means, however we have to find anyone who clearly witnessed what had happened or could have possibly done it themselves." Ajalon let out a sigh, as from exhaustion of thinking. "Our friend Dmitri had gone to go question some other people and left me to return here, however I am afraid I am at a loss as to what to do from this point. Sorry, it is unfortunate that this whole 'detecting' business is all quite new to me!"
