The others as well as Rapier's horse arrive at the side of the church's hill. Dismounting, the group forms into a semi-circle to discuss their plan of attack.

"I do not believe a direct attack would get us far... seeing what we have had to deal with already..." Edward spoke up.

"Perhaps some kind of trap?" Johann suggested, whilst dismounting, "The creature appears to have lost the scant intelligence it held. We could draw it into a pit or the like."

Norman shook his head.  "It would get out somehow, by climbing or digging or one of those portals they seem to enjoy using.  We have to go after its master," he nodded at the church.  "In there.  Unless someone can think of another way, I'm afraid it's our only option."

"The man who masquerades as a Priest? I agree, the creature seems obsessed with it's master. Of course, what if, devoid of it's master, it continue's it's murderous rampage? Perhaps we could...'persuade' the Father to make it back down?"

Gregory spoke up.

"That thing looked pretty damaged, do you think it can still detect magic?", he said as he shimmered in and out of invisibility.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

"Probably, from what I can tell only its thinking is impaired.  Everything else seems to be as strong as ever.  As for convincing its master, that would be preferable, but we can't waste too much time trying if he refuses.  If the thing still wants to fight afterward, it only seems to want me.  I think I can stay ahead of it if I get help from my order, and if worst comes to worst...  I've led a long life, and it might stop with me."

Genevive raised the dagger above her head and closed here eyes, there was a moment's hesitation. In that moment the door behind Bernardo flew open and a tattered Battlemage staggered in, Genevive dropped the dagger and sat down on the floor in tears.

"Master Bernardo!" The Battlemage cried.

Bernardo, enraged, spun around and lifted the Battlemage by the neck.

"What could possibly posses you to intrude on this most sacred of rituals!" He yelled.

"M-master! Lazarus... he..." The Battlemage began, Bernardo dropped him.

"What has happened?" Bernardo asked, his tone changing entirely.

"Lazarus followed that group of troublemakers into the city and... and something happened to him. He's on a rampage! Nothing can stop him, he's gone as far as killing my commander... you must fix this!" The Battlemage said, sobbing.

"Hmm... very well." Bernardo said calmly "Marstems is with them still... he must have figured Lazarus out by now... Agents!"

The three Agents in the room lined up in front of Bernardo.

"Allow Marstems' group safe passage to my lab, keep them on a tight leash though." Bernardo ordered "He must know that the only way to stop Lazarus is by my order... we will make a deal... alert me when they have reached their destination."

The Agents bowed and left the room, the Battlemage was close behind. Bernardo stood and faced Genevive.

"If you feel that this is too much for you... I can finish the ceremony." Bernardo said.

"Perhaps that is best." Genevive replied.

"Then it shall be done." Bernardo said, extending his hand "Come, there are some people we must meet with first."

He picked up the golden dagger and led Genevive out of the room.

Edward looks at the sky for a moment.

"Time is of the essence. With a lack of a better idea, let us go in. Rapier will catch up."

Turning to the hill, the groups makes their way to the church.

Bernardo arrived in his lab and sat down at his workbench. Genevive stood quietly in the corner waiting for Bernardo's word, a side door opened and Schala stepped in. She approached Bernardo and whispered something in his ear.

"... if you insist." Bernardo said, slightly reserved.

Schala smiled and stood at attention next to the lab's main door, her back against the wall. The room was silent save for the sounds of Bernardo turning a screw on a small device. With each turn there were several clicks and something would tighter and tighter, it was the key to Bernardo's other great brainstorm and, if need be, he would unleash it on the group. Secretly though, he hoped they would just listen to his proposal and comply; Bernardo really felt no animosity toward any of them, preserving the Brotherhood was his goal, not squabbling with a ragtag team of deviants.

Norman hurried through the door and raised his cane defensively as he sensed the presence of Bernardo's agents.  They revealed themselves and raised their hands to show they were unarmed.  "The Grand Master wishes to speak with you."  They motioned to the confessional.  "Please follow us."

Norman turned to the others.  "If they know we're here we don't have much of a choice, I suggest we go with them."

"Seconded."
Johann's hands grip his blade tightly. He was not going to let them walk behidn him, as they began to lead him, Norman and the rest away.

Gif nodded approval and followed after Norman. He continued with growing apprehension as they went farther into the building.

Keeping a hand on his sword, Edward keeps pace with the rest of the group through the veritable maze of corridors. Edward's eyes darted around, he was feeling uneasy about being led directly to Bernardo Likely.

The door behind Bernardo opened slowly and four people walked in, escorted by two elite Agents.

"Edward DeCaith, Johann Van Durecht, Norman Marstems, and... Gif..." Bernardo said, without turning around "Sir Percival Goodwine is absent? What a pity..."

Bernardo waved the two Agents over and whispered something to them, they exited the room and locked the door shut; Schala sidled in front of the door and resumed her stance.

"I would imagine you have many questions for me but I must ask you to bite your tongues, for you see, mistakes have been made." Bernardo said, turning the screw on the small device "Shortly after you arrived at the port of Calais you encountered Lazarus who was in search of a young boy, Zacchirea Swer. You engaged Lazarus in battle and, after a brief exchange, were allowed to continue on your journey. At this point I sent some of my men out to gather more information and discovered that Mr. Marstems was traveling with you... I panicked, to say the least. Recent events in the Brotherhood have made me paranoid and I've been rash with many of my decisions. I sent my friend and ally, Irving Castillo, out to kill you and by an amazing stroke of luck you killed him. This prompted me to send out Lazarus, a mistake, I will admit, and now we are in a bit of a spot. I will leave it up to the fates to decide what goes into the history books, but for now I have a proposition for you all."

Bernardo stood up from his workbench and turned to face the group, he turned the screw once more as he walked toward them.

"Lazarus will not stop in his pursuit to kill you all, as you may have noticed, he can not be killed. While you may think that I am lying I am going to reveal a sad truth to you, Lazarus can not be killed! Any damage you think you may have done to him is merely cosmetic, at the very worst you have compromised his ability to reason and that makes your situation all the more dire. Now onto my proposition..." Bernardo said slowly, turning the screw again "I am willing to grant Sir Percival Goodwine, Edward DeCaith, Johann Van Durecht, and Gif safe passage out of the church, and an official pardon. Mr. Marstems can inform you that this is a chance very few get. In return Mr. Marstems will stay here with me for questioning and, at a later date, will be given the same deal that I have offered the rest of you."

Bernardo turned the screw again and there was a loud click, he extended his right hand to Marstems.

"The decision is yours Mr. Marstems, do think about your companions before you speak, I really have no desire to meet any of you in battle." Bernardo said "Please be quick though, Lazarus will be here soon."
