It was colder here, colder than she'd expected. She certainly  had never expected to be here, on the doorstep of her oldest enemies. But a newer enemy had hurt her more deeply than she would have thought possible, and she had come to do the most unlikely thing of all: ask for their help. She raised a gloved hand and rapped  it against the door.

She'd thought the house was disturbingly creepy upstairs but that was nothing compared to what awaited them at the end of the staircase beneath the house. It looked kind of like a cross between an aquarium in hell and some mad scientist's lab. Which, she thought with a sideways glance at Isaak, it rather well could be. "I thought you mentioned a medical facility."

She would never have expected, had she been standing on this street looking about her, that this was where her former mortal enemies and now somewhat civil allies made their home and all their plans. It looked just like any other of the buildings.

She glanced behind her, quirking a brow. Isaak seemed to have gotten lost in thought a few houses back. "Isaak?"

To say that she is apprehensive is a gross understatement. Underneath the steely determination, she is terrified. She is leaving her home for what could be the last time, fleeing to an uncertain refuge with an organization whose goals are diametrically opposed to those she has cherished for so long. Why, today of all days, is the train late?

Timeline: Canonverse, post-apocalyptic Rome

How had she come to this? On her darker days, she couldn't even begin to pinpoint where her path had strayed. Somewhere between meeting Abel, all the vows and promises she'd made, to herself in the quiet of her heart, aloud to the world.....what had been a course blessed by the highest and most noble of ideals had turned into a petty and vindictive quest for vengeance.

It was folly to be here, in the ashes of what had been the holiest city on Earth, survivor even of Armageddon. The very air was toxic to the healthy. To her damaged lungs, it was the kiss of death. She didn't really care. It was hell to outlive the majority of those one had sworn to protect and defend.

By some miracle the roses she'd spent what little leisure time she'd had caring for had survived, albeit in a twisted and stunted form. She leaned down to twist some of the blood red blooms from their thorny stems. For Kaya and for Kate, at the very least.

She realized belatedly that she'd torn her fingers open on the thorns. She attempted to coax any sort of pity for herself into being. But instead she found herself watching the blood drip onto the ashes and broken stones, flicking her fingers irritably.  "A kingdom never to be brought to ruin, eh?" she muttered darkly, counting her previously unshakable faith among the casualties of war.

[It's a warm autumn day. The brightly colored leaves are drifting around the secluded corner of the garden where the young woman sits, a book in her hands. One would be forgiven for mistaking her for just another pretty face. But that fragile porcelain beauty hides an iron will and a ruthlessly sharpened intellect. She is Cardinal Caterina Sforza, Duchess of Milan.]

It is as though nature seeks to keep her brilliant finery despite the approach of winter's chill. I do so hate cold weather. But far worse storms threaten on the horizon than those brought by nature itself.

To the citizens of Lumiere: a gentle reminder.... Believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear. 

....And as for you. My opinion of you should be quite clear.
