Yeah, and is not like he could have thunderbolted the one that girl was in anyway.

What else can he do?

He goes back to the girl and shouts at the top of his lungs to see if she wakes up.

Okay, plan b.

Felix goes looking for her real body. He puts on a trench coat to disguise his wings and tries to triangulate her most likely location.

Permalink

It will take some doing but is doable. A Jane Doe was found apparently-catatonic in a no-tell motel and moved to a local hospital.

Permalink

Okay, he comes up with a list of things to dream up. Like as much informaiton he can find about the Jane Doe's true identity, her current state, likely relatives, any other pecularities reported?

 

It occurs to him that the dreamshard could have caused this, somehow, he checks the motel`s room for it.

Permalink

The motel room does not currently contain it.

Permalink

Well, darn.

This does not look like the sort of place with a reliable lost and found, but he asks anyway.

Permalink

The police came and took all the Jane Doe's stuff when she was hospitalized, maybe they have it.

Permalink

Alright, thank you, presumably-a-hotel-staff.

Felix checks on the girl before checking all the police documentation.

Permalink

Her name, it transpires, is Emily Xavier; a year and a half ago on her eighteenth birthday her parents and twin sister were found murdered in their home and she wasn't found at all.

Permalink

Oh, no.

 

Surviving relatives?

Anything on the Jane Doe report that mentions a crystal shard?

Permalink

No surviving relatives. Her parents were both only children, her paternal grandfather died of some kind of lab accident when her father was six, her paternal grandmother died of liver failure when her father was seventeen, her maternal grandmother died of cancer a few years before she was born and her maternal grandfather died of heart failure not long after his daughter was murdered. Her mother does have a living step-brother but the two haven't interacted since long before Emily was born.

There was some kind of chunk of grey quartz held loosely in her hand when they found her.

Permalink

Was it kept in police custody? Felix will check where and plan how to retrieve it. And make a note to alert the police about her true identity later.

He visits the girl's dream-avatar.

Permalink

That expected.

Felix actually does not know if she can't wake up at any moment or something. He also does not know if she is going to turn into a vampire or if the coffin is separating her into good and evil parts... regardless he is going to leave a note explaining everything and a cooler with foodstuffs. As far he can tell dream-avatars don't kill the real selves, but it's better play safe.

He figures out a way to retrieve the dreamshard right out of the police vault by just making a portal right next to where it is.

Permalink

Fortunately the police aren't paying enough attention to this one random Jane Doe's belongings for this to worry any of them.

Permalink

Great. Felix takes the shard back to his new home-

Permalink

He should use it! He can help so much people with it! Save so many people from all this sort of thing! From all the monsters that lurk hidden-

Permalink

Felix drops it...

...wait, did it talk to Felix?

Did said there were monsters around?

He gingerly picks it up. The shard is not very informative about it, but it's pretty sure about the existence of dangerous non-human creatures around. And apparently this girl was sort of one?

 

He investigates Emily's past a bit further, trying to not break her privacy too much, but maybe if there is references to magical beings around?

Permalink

Well.

When her family was found dead there were suspicious bite marks on their necks.

Permalink

 

 

 

Felix makes a point to check on the girl every hour in case she has raisen from the grave as a bloodsucking undead. He also checks for any references to vampires on her belongings, residence, or anything possibly related to her.

He can't make vampires with his dreamshaping, but he should be able to get "miniatures of non-human people in this city".

Permalink

There are a whole lot of non-human people in this city.

If he delves into her past enough he can find that she's something called "The Vampire Slayer."

Permalink

Well, that is... something. Maybe they do have pocket dimensions but not in a way he can notice?

He researches what the hell is "The Vampire Slayer". Also if there is any other sort of magic around besides these creatures.

Permalink

The Vampire Slayer is a teenage girl who is Called to the position when her predecessor dies and monitored by something called the Watcher's Council. Magic: exists. Hell dimensions: exist.

Permalink

Huh.

 

Felix honestly does not know what to make of this thing. He spends the next few days checking on the girl's state and figuring out what is going on with this council.

Also, magic. What is up with that? Can he do it? Is there some sort of analytical magic that he could cast to figure out the coffin's magical properties?
