Escorted by a noble gentleman wearing the symbol of Ezra at his side, a woman dressed in black and with deep auburn hair pulled into an intricate bun was seen leaving the Bazaar with a crate full of peaches. Clearly of the nobility, based on her powder and silks, she then entered the Ouvrier, passing the fruits and the occasional coin out to those she passed.

A loud commotion erupts in the second floor of the Tenements, leaving behind only a great deal of blood.

Responding to the local gossip, two figures dressed in the uniform of the Gendarme arrive shortly after to investigate the scene, knocking on doors and seeking answers...

Escorted by an older looking human, a young halfling in tattered clothes scurries through the city and into the Quartier Ouvrier just around dusk. The man is last seen entering the Barnacle down by the halfling ghetto.

Scraping steel on stone and cacophonous groaning is heard in the night. After some time, the noice abates, and a lone figure in blue is seen passing through, bleeding heavily.
"My soul is overflowing with obeisant reverence, and Your Most Illustrious Excellency of benignity, to you I most humbly bow." -Francesco Ferdinando Alfieri.

At the brink of night.

A desperate cry for help echoes out from the dank and forgotten corner of the halfling ghetto. At dusk, the limp remains of beaten and bruised young halfling lay unconscious just outside the Barnacle, stripped of any valuables he might have had on him at some point. As the locals of the Quartier Ouvrier begin to murmur about yet another unfortunate victim. Sadly this is all but a daily occurrence, rarely does anyone even seem to bat an eye at this sort violence.

In the poverty stricken Ouvrier, rumors begin going around of a small foreign woman offering miraculous healing for free in a ramshackle infirmary hastily erected over the past days. While Halan hospices are common enough among the slums, the feats of healing being performed in this small hospital are anything but common. Everything from breaking curses and restoring eyesight to the regrowth of limbs long lost.

Freshly painted letters on a sign outside the shanty hospital read:

The grim monotony of the day is interrupted by an procession of Black Army of Gundarak soldiers and House d'Esprance retainers, led by the Baroness de Mouisset, herself a native daughter of the Ouvrier. A shipment of southern grain accompanies them and is soon gifted away in attempt to blunt the claws of famine that clutch at the stomachs of the city's poor.

[In the thick of midnight, an unnatural and terrifying wail rings out across the district.  Magical explosions followed shortly after, followed by even more shouting and the physical confrontation of swung swords, axes and whips.  As the night ran on, vapors of crimson clouds of mist pooled upwards into the night sky before vanishing into oblivion.  When the dust settled, all that remained was an imposing silence which stole the night away.]

In the early morning hours, a man in a brown leather trench coat could seen scrambling from nook to cranny, alleyway to alcove, dropping lyrics for some sort of chant or song as he went. They read as follows...

Quote
One, Two, Three, Four! WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!

Five, Six, Seven, Eight! WE WANT ANSWERS! SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT!

We're staying shut till we get paid, fewer hours, no more a slave! No more work till freedom is sung!

NO PEACE TILL VARTEUR'S KILLER IS HUNG!
