Lazarus got to his feet and advanced on Johann again. As it unsteadily raised its sword there was a blast like a thunderclap and it's head jerked sideways awkwardly, a lead pellet fell to the floor with a clang.
"Sorry I'm late" said the Rapier "I had to stop a woman from being mugged."

Drawing his sword he stepped to Johann's side.
"He can't beat two of us" he laughed.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

"Hopefully..." said Johann, parrying deperatley, seeking to get in strikes of his own. It was much easier now: there were gaps between attacks while Lazarus struck at the other, giving time to adopt appropriate stances. Lazarus found it impossible to concerntrate on either hero, as the other would launch a devestating flurry of attacks if he did.

Yes, I am aware of the irony.

As Lazarus tried to deal with both combatants Schala rushed back into the room with a healer in tow. The healer mumbled something and the small trickle of blood that ran down Bernardo's face receded and went back into his head. Bernardo's eyes jumped open and he looked around, he put his hand to his head and sat up.

"..." Bernardo tried to yell but nothing happened.

He walked right up to Lazarus and pushed Johann and Percival out of the way.

"Master, these two must be dealt with, allow me to finish my task." Lazarus said.

Bernardo shook his head and stayed in place, there was a deafening snap from inside Lazarus and a cog seated itself into the wall near Marstems.

"You are interrupting an official order from the Grandmaster, dissenters are to be eliminated." Lazarus commanded.

"You are ordered by your creator to stop." Bernardo finally spat out.

"Dissenters are to be eliminated... dissenters are to be eliminated..."Lazarus said in an endless loop.

Bernardo pulled off his gloves and joined his hands together. He connected various points of the runes that were carved into them and called out.

"Desino! "

The air around Lazarus rippled and he began to slow down. Lazarus approached Bernardo with his sword drawn and ready to strike, with inches to go Lazarus stopped and began to fall over backwards. Bernardo took the saber from Lazarus and he hit the ground with a thud that seemed to pierce everything in the room. Kneeling next to Lazarus, Bernardo sighed and tried to figure out what to do next.

"You." said the Rapier, advancing on Bernardo "You are responsible for the muder of the Count of Geneva. You will come with me, and you will be given a fair trial. If there is any justice you will hang."

Bernardo stood up and looked at Percival; Schala, along with a throng of Agents, stood at the ready.

"Mr. Goodwine... in a few moments justice will be dead in Switzerland and all that will remain is the Order." Bernardo said, pointing to Schala.

Schala escorted Genevive over to Bernardo and then returned to her position, Genevive smiled at Percival and unsheathed the golden dagger.

"Percival! I... I'm so glad you could be here to see this... to see me go on my final journey!" Genevive said with a bright smile.

"Genevive, whatever that man has told you is a lie". said the Rapier, speaking firmly. "He killed your husband and now he wants you dead too so he can snuff out the whole line. Put down that knife.".
He slowly moved his hand to his belt, reaching for his grappling bow.

"He has opened my eyes, dear Percival. With his guidance I will be able to see my husband again and live in eternal bliss!" Genevive replied.

Bernardo remained silent, watching Percival reach toward his grappling bow; Schala too, was watching him with interest. Genevive raised the dagger above her head and closed her eyes.

"Duck!" yelled the Rapier.
Whipping out his bow he fired upwards, the hooks becoming entangled in the ornate chandelier. Pulling on the rope with all his weight he sent it crashing down, candles streaming it plummeted to the ground between the two groups.

Norman transfered energy from the chandelier to the dagger and it twisted out of Genevive's hand and arced through the air and into his own hand.  He nodded thanks to Rapier and turned to the slightly bewildered Genevive.  "Those who open their eyes too wide are blinded by the light they wish to follow."  He said in a steady but commanding voice.  "According to the religion you follow in these actions suicide is a mortal sin, you and your husband would never meet again on any level of existence if your religion is true and the action means nothing if it is false.  Look within for your path, not without."
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

The chandelier landed lightly on the carpet, but with enough force to spill boiling wax across the floor, which immediately burst into flames. The Rapier drew his sword and advanced on Bernardo. "You've failed. Give yourself up and I will show you leniency, if not, I will kill you here as an example to all the other monsters."

"It is only a minor setback... as I've said, your justice has left this land. I am giving you the opportunity to leave, I suggest you take it, Percival." Bernardo said, pointing the Order saber at Percival.

"Do you really want to go swinging that around while I'm here?  I disarmed your contraption easily enough."  Norman said as he casually plucked the cog out of the wall and dropped in his bag, making a mental note to have someone teleport it to the sun.

"I've got a special treat for you Norman." Bernardo said, he snapped his fingers and the small device he had been working on chirped to life.

The tiny screw quickly spun and the device let out a gentle humming sound, the sphere lifted itself off of the ground and hovered at eye level. Everything in the room experienced a slight tug toward the device and it's sound became louder and louder.

"You will find, Norman, that using your kinetic abilities is quite impossible while this device is running..." Bernardo said with a smile "It is poised to revolutionize the world as we know it, a non-magical means of producing energy. Contained within that orb are hundreds of thousands of magnetic strips moving at a speed faster than you could ever imagine. A fortunate byproduct of this, at least for me, is that it disrupts all kinetic fields... if a Kinetic Mage were to try to use his abilities around this device... well, I'm sure you can fill in the rest."

Bernardo laughed at Norman's misfortune and raised his left hand, lightning shot out of it and headed straight for Norman. The orb released a high pitched ringing sound and a bolt of energy arced between itself and Bernardo, greatly enhancing the bolt that he had fired.

Bernardo turned away from Norman and smiled, then advanced on him.

Norman rolled out of the bolts way and sprang up again.  "Very clever, but what about when it runs down?  You and I both know that nothing can run forever without energy drawn from outside, and a non magical device can't draw very much, can it?"

"Very astute of you Norman..." Bernardo said, blocking one of Percival's attacks "I guess you will just have to wait it out."

Bernardo fired another bolt at Norman's feet and he fell slightly off balance. Schala flew through the air and nabbed the dagger from Norman, then placed her sword at his throat.
