>"Certainly not by the likes of you." the arrogant man replies, straightening out his jacket.

>The doctor takes a moment to examine his Red ring before answering you, "I was merely attempting to learn more about you." he states as he removes a handkerchief from his pocket and polishes his Jewel.

>"I had been given the distinct impression that all Blackblood had agreed to stay away from this place while we dealt with Semitur."

>The doctor gives you a smug smile as he pockets his handkerchief. "I would have preferred not to be here. However, my occupation demanded my presence. I am, after all, a physician, and I go where my unparalleled services are required."
>You'd really like to knock that smug look off his face.

>Byakuren Hijiri Corruption Score: 8%

>He does not appear familiar, no.
>"Not personally." she replies. "But a Red Jeweled doctor..." The eagle looks at the Blackblood appraisingly before continuing, "I believe he is the Blood Prince called Hook, a member of a powerful coven called the Buildtrons."

>Provided you keep your voices low, yes. He is far enough away, and there is enough ambient noise, for you to have some leeway. It would be better if the wind was stronger, but short of 'asking' Ice through one of your.... whatever term you wish to use to describe how you communicated with her before, you don't have to ability to affect that discreetly.
>It is a shame she did not accept your earlier offer.

>"He's supposed to be supremely arrogant, but very intelligent." she advises you. "I doubt he'll be stupid enough to attack, not with all us here AND the Ice Champion. I suspect he'll simply leave, now that you've exposed him."

>Byakuren Hiji Corruption Score: 4%.

>"And are you satisfied with that outcome, given these circumstances?"

>"I'd rather not fight a Red Jeweled Prince if I don't have to. Especially one backed by a strong Coven. If we killed him or transformed him, like you did with the Stuntrons, the other five Buildtrons would drop everything and try to kill you. Or me, and attack the Shrine to do it."
>White Rose nods very slightly. "Ya heard what Razorclaw said. We don't need to stir up the Blood if we can help it."
>"Unless you feel the need to make sure he doesn't leave?" Haruka asks.

>"He may have simply been trying take advantage of an opportunity." Haruka suggests. "He may have been on duty when the call came in for doctors to report to this scene. Seeing two of the Blood's potent enemies here, you and the Champions, he may have been trying to learn what he could."
>"Or he's lying." White Rose counters.
>"Possible." the eagle admits.

>"The remaining wounded were easily attended to by my colleagues, though I use the term loosely." he adds with a dismissive huff. "Besides, I saw an opportunity. You and your frosty bird friend represent quite a mystery to us."

>"Not at all. I've no desire to brawl across a dirty strip of tarmac with a pair of girls and an alien bird. But I also wasn't about to simply turn my back on you all and walk away. The shrine maiden, I know, is not one to shoot people in the back."
>"Why, you..." Rin mutters, angry at Hook's unspoken insinuation.

>"What choice do we have?" she asks with a very faint shrug of her wings. "I don't think we'll have to worry about his coven, since we didn't harm him. I'm sure you wounded his pride, but that won't be enough for the others to act on. Not from what I know of the Buildtrons. We could go after him, but that would only exacerbate the situation, provoke a conflict we both wish to avoid."

>"No. They keep a very low profile. So low, in fact, the identity of all of them are unknown. We believe there's six of them, and of those six, we know of Hook, and we know of two others. One a Yellow Jeweled Warlord who runs a local demolitions company, the other a Green Jeweled woman who works as a long distance truck driver and construction vehicle operator."
>"Demolitions?" White Rose asks, confused.
>"Explosives. In this case, using explosives to tear down old buildings in a safe manner."
>The kasha frowns. "A Blackblood that makes a living making bombs?" she asks incredulously.
>Haruka smiles her quiet smile. "Sounds like a recipe for disaster, I know. But he's been working in this city for seven years, and he's never injured anyone on his jobs. He's only ever been involved in one violent incident, and the police determined that the other men involved were the instigators. They attacked him, and Bonecrusher acted in self-defense."
>"Bonecrusher?" White Rose blurts.
>"That's what he calls himself." Haruka says simply. "I'm not certain why. I'm only glad he doesn't live up to it."

>Rin keeps a wary eye on the retreating Buildtron as you return your attention to the Ice Champion. The giant bird inclines her head slightly, which you assume is a sign of agreement.
