Hail, Claude (private)
Ellis read over her new vampire's bio and purred. 'I smell a new Merc,' she sang as she tucked her feet up under her and made herself comfortable on the plush leather circular. Carol had just fed her the information on Claude through her computer panel located in the arm.
Picking up her cell phone she called Carol. She waited for her executive secretary's fairy like voice and smiled. 'Have this new one meet me in the Abby.' Ellis didn't wait for an answer and flipped the phone closed. She hoped this one had Harvester potential, they seemed to be running out.
Ellis smiled, picking an errant piece of tobacco off her tongue as she let the smoke roll out of her mouth. Her other hand waved him to sit down. 'Clever boy, how ever did you guess?' She grinned.
She liked the look of this one but liked his bio even more. She'd need a good strong mercenary. Her jobs had been piling up as of late and she could test him out on a few of them.
'So what brings you to Nachton, dear? Fortune, infamy or both?'
Smiling, He could tell this one had wit, I find that very endearing in a female., thinking to himself. Claude pulled out a cigarette with a black lighter that had a red Vampire ankh engraving on it, and lit up.
"Heh, let's just say I...pay attention. To your last question, both. I've come to establish a favourable reputation for myself here, hopefully start a business should circumstances permit someday. I've acquired sufficient wealth as an enforcer for one of the foremost cocaine peddlers on the East Coast, I believe you'll be more than satisfied with what I have to offer. Now, I believe you have a particular job in mind for me?"
She turned the lap top so that it faced him and opened it. On the screen was the picture of a rather nondescript looking female human. 'This is Gloria Thorps. She is the wife of the editor of the Nachton Times. They have a rather nosey reporter named Kyle Evans. I dont want you to hurt Evans, not physically anyway.' She purred. 'I just want you to kill someone close to his heart.' Ellis shrugged. 'It helps that she's extremely rich and her family is tied to another thorn in my side, but that's neither here nor there.'
She reached over and pressed a button. 'This is all the information you'll need. Her schedule, her hobbies, her pet cat's name.' She snorted. 'It's George, how cute is that?!' She gently closed the lap top. 'The clan's armory is at your disposal. Report to Carol when you're done.'
Ellis lifted the computer and held it out to Claude. She gave him a sweet smile. 'Enjoy.'
((ooc - feel free to have fun with this ))
"Trust my word, m'Lady, I will not disappoint and with this I bid you adeiu." Claude said as he walked away, and playfully blowing a heart-shaped smoke ring in Ellis' direction.
He was a smoker.
'Thank fucking god for that,' Ellis murmured as she reached for her cigarettes.
