Wendyll’s Associate, Geoffry Alcott, the owner of a Labour Personell Company was away in the Clan Lands in the North Tending to business. Wendyll asked SINdy to see to Mr. Alcott’s business in Welland’s Port until the he came back from his business dealings.
SINdy, unaccustomed to doing work for the company inquired about the change. Wendyll informed her that the unusual weather and constant storms had prevented his ships from coming in. He was afraid they might be lost at sea and therefore any deals they could tie up without hiring new personell would ensure the company’s survival for the season.
Wendyll hired Black as SINdy’s personal guard because of the recent attempts on SINdy’s life. He also hired John McNamara to deal with slaves and logistics of transporting them while SINdy dealt with the business end of things.
They were to bring four slaves to the Merchant Lord Gordon Boyd:
Devin Baggs, a young servant; Gord Micheals, an old burglar who chose slavery rather than execution; Paul Sticks, an elderly man and; Thomas Cleary, A young farmer who turned to crime when his farm burned.
Upon leaving the trading company the gang meets up with a local, Ariella of the Fox Clan who tells them she is seeking out members of Wexford Trading Co. She admits it’s that the request is strange but they will know more if they meet her at Oztrmo’s Den, the local Hostel in The Docks and meet with Alice Pippery, the Hostel owner. She gets them to promise to go over to the hostel after their errand.
While picking up the slaves the group calms down an incident between two prisoners:Percy Shelly, a notorious murderer who is being delivered to a Rich Noble in the Northern Frontier; and Devin Baggs a sixteen year old servant boy who had been sold to Gordon Boyd. Percy, not liking Devin’s recorder playing, decided to strangle the boy to death.
When The group then brings the slaves to Lord Boyd he attempted to convince SINdy to sell Ramses, Geoffry Alcott’s personal Servant. Claiming a social obligations, the group proceeds to see Alice Pippery.
Alice, who seemed sick tells them she had a vision. It revolved around the killings that have been happening lately and it culminated with Ramsey losing his soul. She told them the SINdy was the “fish lady” and Black was the “demon”. That they could stop the murders but that Ramseys would be in terrible danger. The group thought she was crazy, but decided to look into the murders
The gang then had a nice supper that didn’t include alphagetties but did include a large amount of booze for John. John decided to stumble home. The rest went to the nearest bobby precinct and spoke with an Irish cop, Constable Markus Donalson about the killings. He pointed them to where the bodies had been discovered and then to the morgue. At the morgue they determined that the killings were being done for rituals and the bodies were then dumped into the sea, where they eventually washed up on shore.
The group went to Fish Town to set up a stakeout for the killer. The two people who were hiding were then noticed by Gord Micheals who told them that another slave is being killed in the tunnels. The group there wasn’t time to call for back-up and plunged head-long into the stinking sewers.
