"♥♥♥♥. I guess we should've expected this, we made their job harder but they wouldn't be stealing that many people without a need to."


Olivia: "Is there anything known about the motive, yet?"

"We think they're 'harvesting' people, possibly for their spirits. Beyond that, no idea."

"So far, most, if not all, of the soldiers targeted had rather strong spirit to body connections. People who survived normally fatal injuries, and so on. Furthermore-"

>Point at Claire.

"Claire here has a very strong spirit, and she seems to have been the most affected. Not to mention, in one of her hallucinations, the creature talked to her and said it was 'harvesting' something.
We're pretty certain it must mean spirits, or something close to that."

"Key word; Possibly. During my investigation I noticed there was a surprising number of AWOL soldiers that had been harvested who also showed signs of a strong body-spirit connection. And the bodies we found looked, well,
mostly intact. There was an ear wound, so they may be gathering something from, idk, the brain. Or, they're gathering spirits.
Well, that's mostly conjecture."

Also say Areku's 2nd paragraph.

Olivia: "Hm. Weird. Something to watch out for while researching, I guess.

I'm going to get ready for bed, and Bezel and I can work on those sensors or something tomorrow."


She gives everyone a small smile before getting up and leaving the table, heading upstairs.



Bezel lets out a yawn before standing up.

Bezel: "I'm gonna hit the shower."

She leaves the table as well, while Kalob and Byron head over to their spot in the living room.

Glancing over at Claire, you see that she's tapping on the cover of her book - The Fourth Theory.

"The Fourth Theory?"


Claire: "The Ruhe maintain there's a ranking to spirits. Most humans, chirop, and lupus are Thirds, witches and nullifiers are Fourths. The Ruhe's method of distinction is all mystically and not very scientific, but many people believe that there is indeed some sort of tier system.

One of the greatest mysteries of magic is the Other, or Alternate - if it's a realm where various spirits and weird energy reside, why can't we find any? One theory is that the Other consists of multiple planes, with some of the planes being capable of having bridges from them to this world. Third would be from one plane, fourths from another.

This book also tries to identify various creatures that could be Fourths, and a handful of creatures that we have previously identified as witches but could possibly be separate creatures that are Fourths.

This book suggests that the Daughters of Caelus are Fourths, for one weird example."

"Interesting.
If the daughters theory is true, then, wouldn't that make all the Daeli Fourths too?"

Claire: "According to the theory, yeah."

She stretches and lets out a yawn.

Claire: "I'm going to get to bed now. Night!"

She stands up and walks to the stairs, leaving you the last one at the table.

All washed up, you flop into your bed, not bothering to close the door yet. You simply lie there for a bit, doing nothing, when someone knocks on your door frame.

Olivia is standing there, a small smile on her face.

Olivia: "Hey. Got a minute?"

She steps into your room and closes the door. Walking over to your bedside, she sits near the foot end.

Olivia: "Since we're going to be working together as fellow witch researchers, I thought we should get to know each other a little! You're an, archaeologist, right?"

"Uh, yeah, that's me I guess. I've mostly been studying the ancient forms of magic - Runic, alchemy, and the like - but anything that's long-forgotten or hidden interests me."
