With the arrival of a large group of foreigners to The Gendarmerie an angry crowd of Caliban quickly began to amass outside the gates. Shouts and calls for justice were met with calls to disperse by members of The Gendarmerie Nationale. Eventually the crowd disperses as night falls, partially due to the peaceful efforts of Sieur Roland Steele.

Rumors spread throughout The City of Lights about Sieur Roland offering to hire Caliban to his company. Most nobles scoff at the idea, but in some circles of gossip the idea of using these 'twists' as military fodder seems a interesting prospect.

The Captain of the Silent Fields, Baudouin de Courcillon, is seen entering the city from the East accompanied by a Borcan Condottieri, a member of the Company of the Bridge, and a small retinue of retainers that have clearly seen battle.  In their care is a line of seven Dwarves and one man of Vaasi descent, chained in irons.  The group is marched directly toward the Gendarmerie Nationale. He and his retinue are greeted with loud cheers, and many a drink is lifted in toast to his name.

Bangs, crashes, and a bit of commotion are heard echoing from the Chaboteaux bride's coveted lounge early in the morn.
A door is left ajar, stools and furniture upturned, and yet when inspected.. There is no sign of the Dame at all.

A new, Dove-inspired vanishing act? The spots of rubble on her pretty wooden floors decree otherwise.

A red-haired noblewoman is seen directing laborers to dispose of debris and rubble from the violent confrontation in L'Oiseau Bleu in Shop III. Contractors and artisans are brought in throughout the day, each making various repairs, surveying damages, and importing new furniture.

All in an effort to fix what was once damaged and broken.

A mostly-composed, red-haired noblewoman marches to the Gendarmerie Nationale inquiring publicly about the recent confinement of M. Sacha Frelon. She is escorted behind closed doors by a gendarme and is seen sometime soon after, somber and sullen.

Such a job offering isn't advertised -- that's just not how important things are done in Port-a-Lucine -- but rumour would spread amongst the legal profession that the State is on the look out for an ambitious prosecutor, for an upcoming trial... prospects should contact Lieutenant Dorian de Sauvre at the Gendarmerie Nationale. Needless to say, those without the right to practice law in Dementlieu need not apply.

((FPM me if interested!))

The Gendarmerie's newest Lieutenant appears to be desk-bound on administrative leave after yesterday's incident, limping about the Gendarmerie in crutches when in uniform.

From shop III in the Quartier Savant, also known as L'Oiseau Rouge, sounds of a violent confrontation can be heard, yelling and fighting.

Then, suddenly, nothing.

The blood of two people is spilled across the floor of the lounge, though the only body to be found is of a diligent agent of Red Vardo Traders. Missing from the scene is Éléonore Ambroiseux, who had purportedly opened the shop not but thirty minutes earlier...

A swarm of Blue-coats fill out the various streets and corners of the Quartier Savant. Notably, Two Gendarme officers lead this host of manpower in a coordinated patrol, followed shortly by the cordoning off of the shop, L'Oiseau Rouge. A sign out front states that no one is allowed in by order of the Gendarmerie de la Nationale..

The youngest Gendarmerie Lieutenant would have been notably absent these past few days; rumour would have it that he took a coach to Yvoire early on Friday morning and had not yet returned...

Larissa Vouivre, a minor member of the gentry increased her scandelous reputation today by bringing into the city the corpse of a young noblewoman. The corpse, clad in a green dress, was missing most of it's throat. Larissa makes no delay in taking the body through the streets to the Gendarme, followed afterwards by two well dressed men.

Not two days later does Larissa Vouivre return to the Gendarme. Once more she carries the corpse of another woman in her arms, and once more is the body left with the Gendarme National. Her name is again left, should an investigating officer wish to seek her out with any questions.

The form of Alisaie Goulet is seen entering the Gendarmerie, though as the hours tick by, it does not seem like she has left the premises..

A commontion at Le Palais Rogue, Wagons arrive in the early morning, and neatly wrapped paintings are shipped back to the Ambrosieux estate. Others are quietly sold off. Locks are changed. It seems the well known gambling establishment is under new management.

Once more does life return to The Red Palace, as news of Larissa Vouivre's twenty thousand solar giveaway spreads. Over a dozen individuals make their way inside, and from within the sound of lively debate continues for some time...

[An elven woman draped in silken attire suited to her figure and raven hair done up in a simple yet elegant style is seen entering the City of Lights. Before she does anything else, she walks straight to the Headquarters of the Gendarmerie (after wandering the area for a few moments, appearing to be a little lost), entering through the doors with a calm disposition. She is there for a little while before exiting, continuing on with her business. She is seen visiting the occasional establishments and other public places within the city.]

[Over the course of a week, furniture and supplies are moved in and out of a building on the corner of Rue Jalabert. The sign is replaced, now reading "Café & Bijouterie Vouivre". It seems like the establishment will be ready to open soon.]

By twilight the bark of a flintlock echoes through the emptying plazas and through the open windows of the Quartier Savant. Angry shouting answers the sound, both seeming to stem from the sometimes-scandalous Orchid and Willow Theatre. The shrill howl of a Gendarme's whistle follows not soon after, and rumor swirls that a madman has tried to take the life of the Marquise de Givrémont. As luck would have it, the noblewoman had already departed shortly before her would-be attacker's arrival. There is tepid concern in some quarters for the nerves of the theatre's manager, Violeta Dragunescu-Istrate, a regular about the city who is generously described in some circles as "harmlessly eccentric".
"Finding it, though, that's not the hard part. It's letting go."

A wizened man in robes of deep azure enters the Quartier Savant and makes his slow, but purposeful way directly to the Gendarmerie Nationale de Dementlieu, where he announces his presence as requested by Sargent Arnaude Fosse. He is made to wait, taking up a spot on the nearby benches, reading in silence.
