The Cities of Eternal Fog

Criminal Intent - Part 1

Our story begins

Last time on “The Cities of Eternal Fog” ...

Our trusty Coterie meets the acerbic teenage ghoul, Natalie; who promptly dispatches them to the residence of one Mr. Petrovsky… a russian nosferatu somehow associated with a Moscow fire way back in the 1800’s…

Mr. Petrovsky informs our crew that a rogue kindred enforcer, Simone, has frenzied in public and killed a streetperson. Worse yet, the incident has been captured on camera by a kine known only as ‘Dawson.’

Upon arriving at the scene of the crime, the Coterie discovers several compelling clues that don’t quite match up with Petrovsky’s story. Furthermore, the indomitable Ms. Clairburne manages to sweetalk her way into the club, and discovers a brewing love triangle between Dawson, Simone, and an as-of-yet unknown third party.

Just as they are getting ready to pay a visit to the myserious Mr. Dawson, the Coterie is confronted by Simone, a Bezerkeley enforcer. After calming the firey latina down, she agrees to escort them to an interview with Dawson, provided they refrain from any violent action against him.

At the apartment of Jack Dawson, Jack claims that it was, in fact, Mr. Petrovsky that frenzied, and it was his image which Dawson snapped a photo of. After an amazing display of technical wizardry, Jason Chen manages to restore some of the blurred photograph, clearing Simone’s name. Also, it is revealed that Dawson has painted a portrait of Mr. Petrovsky, and the painting is now in the hands of the seductive childe, Melanie Dunne. Thinking quickly, Draxton, Kindred P.I. Extrodinaire , manages to pick up on a number of disturbing hints in the behavior of both Simone and Dawson, revealing that there may be more to their relationship than first guessed.

The Coterie arrives in Golden Gate Park just in time to meet Melanie Dunne. She claims that Petrovsky murdered her sire and attacked her in the alley besides rapture. The charismatic Eric Strathorn manages to convince Melanie to lower her guard and turn herself in to the prince at Elysium. However, she insists on first acquiring the painting of Mr. Petrovsky, so as to provide evidence of his crimes.

Before the Coterie can vanish into the night, they are cornered by John and Charles, the retainers of Mr. Petrovsky. They give the Coterie a simple choice; turn Melanie over to Petrovsky, or be prepared to fight for their very lives…
