  • Tejas of Vayu (Fire of Air):[9]
  • Tejas of Prithvi (Fire of Earth, Red Equilateral Triangle in Yellow Square):[10]
  • The Tattva combinations provide a technique for seeing and learning various things, with some capable of identifying and highlighting traces of residual information in a person's surroundings.[8][9][10] Although this form of meditation is normally done using cards, the symbols can be used without them.[10] While it is a simple method, one must not take it lightly or lose sight of their objective when using it.[10] One warning given by Mathers himself, is that pressing a card to one's forehead in a misguided attempt to strength the image in the head will trigger a malfunction in the mind - this can be exploited by applying it to someone else to force them into a temporary state of confusion or hallucination.[10]

Barcelonan and Barcelonian both in dictionary, latter has red underlining:[9][10]

  • Golden swords (黄金の剣?) - Unnamed Priest
  • Personality
    • Front (of good priest), fear (motivation rather than well-being of others)
  • Background
  • Chronology
    • Pt8
  • Abilities
    • The priest's weapons, intended to defend himself from curses and foes, are countless swords made of gold. A valued metal which does not rust and retains its shine, gold is often used to repel impure curses. The sword is an angel's weapon and a symbol of separation, in religion, mythology and other lore.[10]
    • The swords are fused to the priest's body under his habit and attached to his skeleton, with idea of becoming one with them to take on their traits as an extreme form of defense against curses. When revealed, they fan out behind him like golden wings. The priest tends to shoot them as projectiles.[10]
    • However, as Agnese pointed out in her confrontation with the priest, while pure gold is used as a symbol of incorruptible, it often becomes a source of resentment and jealousy and as such, is also a popular choice for gathering curses, its meaning drastically changing depending on the interpretation used.[10]
    • Golden swords

Spain:

  • Lost naval aspect
  • Roman Catholic country (Pt3/6) but also crossroads for several different cultures including Haitian Voodoo (Pt1)
  • Cuisine, culture, siesta

Churches:

  • Personal information, baptismal register/info on locals (Pt6)

Concealing Spell:(Pt6)

  • Lot of spells to hide presence, sneak into places, or transform into opposite gender(AgneseSSCh1Pt6-SD38?)
  • Spell not need Lotus Wand, constructed by taking Christian ritual of death and rebirth, rearrange based on story of goddess in different mythology, GD researched how to gain mythology/religion's power using stage performance - part of "getting into character" for performance is dressing up as a god.
  • Chant: “While supported by the holy tetragrammaton of YHVH, we don the clothing of Isis, goddess of the lunar hexagram, so we might be resurrected from death and ascend here as new beings altogether.”
  • Change, not seen from inside of spell, not disguising as specific person, turn selves into "nobodies", not stand out in crowd, no one remember what look like after taking few steps away, not perfect, if someone sees six times (hexagram?) - see through to true face, no doing suspicious or pacing back/forth on same road, keep walking towards goal

Egyptian Mythology:

  • Isis - lunar hexagram (one link to lunar hexagram, or one to lunar (moon or astrology) and hexagram (magic circle - common symbols? shapes/geometry?))

Voodoo:

  • Deities
  • Zombie Powder
  • Sacrificial ritual
  • Curses
  • Ti Bon Ange

Necromancy:

  • Word brings to mind techniques to control corpses
  • Field actually divided into many factions and schools
  • Examples:
    • Summon dead spirit to predict future
    • Living wearing clothes of the dead to become one with them and draw on their power
  • Technique of controlling humans - living and dead
    • Some necromancers take summoned soul/something seeming like one and seal in own body
    • Need to understand how living body works
    • With knowledge can experiment on how much can be eliminated from human body while still remaining themselves.

Residual Information:

  • Forensic cleaning
  • Residual thoughts
  • Noise/erosion
  • The Tattva combinations provide a technique for seeing and learning various things, with some capable of identifying and highlighting traces of residual information in a person's surroundings.[8][9][10]

Everyday magic:

  • Almost anything in everyday life can be used for magic (AgneseSSCh1Pt3, ?)

Curses/Purification:

  • "...things used for cleaning and sterilization could be used for purification and things that led to pollution and decay could be used for curses. Good examples of the former were water, salt, and fire. Good examples of the latter were mud and animal blood." (Part 3)
  • Although pure gold is often used as a symbol of the incorruptible, it is also a popular choice for gathering curses, with its rarity capable of leading people away and becoming a source of jealousy and resentment. Mythological examples include the ring Andvaranaut in Norse Mythology and the golden apples in Greek Mythology.[10]

Chapter 2:[11]

Tracing summoning (Summoning]/Summoner/Summon link?):

  • Containers collapse with first shot, most but ghost ship not vanish, uncollapsed one, grip silver staff and spin on spot
  • Not anyone perform summoning at any time/place, need precisely set up with appropriate direction/time/location for summoning target, magic circle for summoning complex/intricate because essentially writing out a lengthy address to ensure summon target.
  • Iron=Mars, Lead=Saturn, Gunpowder=Sulfuric acid=Sulfur=earth, Ship (quicksilver)=Salt=Ether
  • Apply current latitude/longitude/date to four symbols, check positions of planets
  • Flow of energy most likely to interfere with planet movements, path entering from south and leaving to west-northwest
  • Like using hands of analogue clock and sun's position to determine direction

Five Suspects

Harris Nicholagene: (Sulfur)[12]

  • Pt3
  • Pt6
  • Personality
    • Harris has expressed a preference for mandrakes with a feminine appearance, but objects to being called a pervert because of this, insisting on alternative reasons in response.[13][3][12](2-3,5,6)
    • Insistence
  • Background
    • Starting with summoning, he intended to move on to growing mandrakes in a sealed glass greenhouse and remaking the environment they were growing in to see the effects.
  • Abilities
    • Researching environmental maintenance, fill field with strange things, strange things happen more easily, don't intend to remake natural environmental immediately, start by summoning then plan to move on to growing in sealed glass greenhouse

Pierre Gosetti:(Pt6)[12]

  • Mention the catacombs
  • Personality
    • 5=6 in recruiting division, sure bragging about being from niche of niche community (Agnese thought)
      • Pierre appears to be proud of his position, emphasizing and repeating it when naming himself in his interrogation.
    • Preference towards mental temple - want to hide, avoid actions raising eyebrows, not smart to head into crypt every night
      • He prefers the use of a mental temple as a ceremonial ground over a physical location, knowing that one should avoid conspicuous actions when they wish to remain hidden (such as going into a crypt every night to conduct suspicious rituals). In his ceremonial actions, he has mentioned wanting to bolster his mental side to make sure his thoughts were not dragged down by the materialism of the current metal-driven age.[12]
    • Want to bolster mental side to make sure thoughts not dragged down by materialism of metal-driven age
    • Charm preparation - need to clear hurdle. Cares about wife's safe birth to want one, silence - nothing wrong,
    • Pierre cares about his wife having a safe birth, enough to forgo his usual preference and want a physical talisman to aid it.
  • Background
  • Abilities
  • Unsorted
    • 5=6 (GD rank with these numbers: Adeptus Minor, First of the Second Order), B∴A∴, recruiting division, sure bragging about being from niche of niche community - no time for this
    • Only using summoning ceremony to create talisman from Taphthartharath (Mercury/quicksilver), want to bolster mental side to make sure thoughts not dragged down by materialism of metal-driven age
    • Using protective charm for own purposes, going about in right way
    • Talismans activated with command and amulets with constant effect, all such protective charms are spiritual items that have to be filled with a form of energy. Like charm for good business/grades, not prepare unless need for one to clear hurdle.
    • Cabal messed up succession process after previous boss died. Passcode lost, can't enter ceremonial ground
    • Original crypt mental thing? Think smart to head down to catacombs beneath Paris to perform suspicious rituals every night? Want to hide, avoid actions raise eyebrows, don't want to construct physical building as ceremonial ground at all. One way of thinking
    • Every single member of cabal mentally picture identical building, can acquire sense of community as if all gathering in same place, reaching point easier said than done, use something as jumping off point for imagination like create identical ice crystals by preparing impurities identical on microscopic level, passcode, random number distributed to all members at set intervals to share, sequence come to end when leader die
    • Prefer to use mental temple, share location with outsiders introduce risk of direct attack, need to create talisman. Talisman for safe birth, wife approaching due date, physical protective charm.

Rini Calculed:[12]

  • Personality
  • Background
  • Abilities
  • Unsorted
    • Wearing pajamas, around same age as Agneses, wearing see-through negligee
    • Researching nightmares (insist on term/correction, sound like another magician with annoying obsession)
    • Look at astral projection, instead of journey to 'other side', interested on marks left on body afterwards (Dion Fortune)(laugh)
    • Want to perform ceremony where summon self elsewhere, extract soul or core of mind from body, best way of accomplishing, leave home and cut self off from outside world, want tension of unfamiliar environment, slight spice of something little bit illegal? yes, more ghost sightings at hotels/hospitals/campgrounds as unfamiliar environment make people sleep less deeply, make easier to experience hypnagogic/hypnopompic hallucinations, booster for helping mind reach higher level
    • Not uncommon for people to think will find special knowledge elsewhere (things/places/people) - Necromancy is example, field develop from crude logic that dead can answer questions as not constrained by rules of life, same person after death and humans can lie but believers in "great beyond" think death makes smarter/honest
    • Son of God made whole when ascend into heaven, focus on just fact and twist intended meaning, can conclude people level up on death, at least in Europe - necromancy not religious thing - more like fad.
    • Extract mind and travel to another world, polar opposite of necromancy. Living encroaching on another territory to feast on otherwordly wisdom found there - assumed collection of knowledge wanted did exist - world not created for humans, wrong to assume things set up for human use.
    • God expel Adam/Eve into outside world for sin, life meant as punishment, best to assume most of world created by god made unpleasant for humans, realm beyond physical even less pleasant, not a line to cross before last judgment. (Agnese thought in narration?)
    • Don't care about that part, interested in body left behind, marks of unknown original that appear on it during journey, Dion Fortune - scratches across back after dream world catfight
    • Why interested, self-harm? Scratches amazing if can control them, placebo effect to take care of inoperable brain tumors and aortic aneurysms, intentionally mess with alchemical principle of salt to see what wounds left on her

Plum Mordosié:[12]

  • Personality
    • Considers self brilliant
  • Background
  • Abilities
  • Unsorted
    • Wanted to kill someone, bloody mourning dress, sticky look in eyes
    • Rental ceremonial ground likened to internet cafe, like wanting to send death threat from someowhere other than home machine, feel attempt fairly naïve
    • Engraved magic name in heart, someone grown "twisted" after face to face with unfair part of reality, only rely on god in time of need, similarly only rely on occult when enough reason to do so
    • Who kill - secret, why want to kill (no set punishment for saying why, who would count as confessing)(people wanting to personally punish often believe strongly in own righteousness) - revenge (Agnese feel certain not come to fruition)
    • Planning everything when attacking more powerful than self. Letting Agnese affect attitude, unlikely have much of plan, like chess player mad at bishop taken and insisting on take foe's queen and forget aim is to take king no matter how many other pieces taken, giving advice would allow revenge to succeed.
    • Take revenge through summoning, think no one can follow logic, no need to put blade in heart self,, disturb balance and target destroy himself, extract physical form through three alchemical principles (tria prima) - salt (body or base matter), sulfur (soul) and mercury (mind)), summon pillar supporting target - lose internal balance and at mercy of power attempting to wield, 'holier-than-thou asshole'
    • Consider brilliant, scare self with own brilliance (thinks highly of self)

Rouen Nalberia:[12]

  • Personality
    • Rouen was initially deviant and confident when faced with interrogation, proclaiming that a magicians only reveals the success of their research by showing off the results and that he'd show what it meant to be a true magician, though he soon vomited at Isabella Theism's words on the skin used to make his bindings.[12]
    • He is also adamant that his goal, being able to obtain pure compositional elements from food, would enhance possibilities for all humans, and insistent that there must be a way to extract the results without losing them before consumption.[12]
  • Background
  • Abilities:
    • Rouen's exact capabilities are not known, though his field of research is known to be food, with the aim of finding a method of cooking that directly extracts compositional elements.[12]
    • When hearing about his goal of directly extracting elements from food, Agnese understood his logic but imagined that studying it would only lead to ancient Chinese alchemy, hoping that he wouldn't try drinking mercury for eternal life[12] - a possible reference to Qin Shi Huang, the First Emperor of China, who sought immortality and ingested mercury in pursuit of it.
    • Rouen managed to demonstrate the heating and cooling of elements within the enclosed space of a glass container, though he was not able to extract the volatilized element without it vanishing on contact with the outside world, able to cook but not consume (a case which Rouen compared to the elixir of life created by Ayton of the Golden Dawn).[12]
    • He planned to use summoning to resolve the problem, with the magic circle surrounding the summoned object being used to maintain the product long enough for it to be consumed, with the cooking being done in the circle and the extract being eaten while the time until its natural destruction is extended.[12] However, this involved another problem which Rouen had not resolved at the time of the Hood incident - in summoning, the summoning and protective circles are generally separate, with the idea to keep the summoned and the summoner in separate fields to prevent the summoned force from harming the summoner.[12]
  • Unsorted
    • Large muscular black man, look like could solve most daily troubles faster with fists than spells
    • Vomited
    • Studying food, find method of cooking that directly extracts compositional elements - enhance possibilities for all humans
    • Agnese: Understood logic but imagine studying only lead to ancient Chinese alchemy (hope not drink mercury for eternal life - QSH?)
    • Demonstrate heating/cooling of elements within enclosed space of glass container, can't extract result - vanishes the instant contacts outside, cooking can be done, can't consume, like elixir of life GD's Ayton created, want way to keep volatilized element in place, using summoning, should be possible - using circle surrounding summoned object, cook in circle and eat while extend time until natural destruction
    • Summoning circle/protective circle generally separate, some just use one and have either human/angel be inside circle, basic idea to keep summoned and summoner in separate fields or summoned bare fangs against summoner, proposition sounds like zoo visitors in cage with lions, not solved problem
    • Rent ceremonial ground to perform experiment, if answer - wouldn't need to keep coming back for more
    • Magic circle s tend to get more complex as time passes, Mathers create English translation of (claimed to be) magic circle of King Solomon, even that has four smaller circles for incense as well as main circle
    • Insist has to be a way, ingredient to enhance humanity there, not allowed to consume, define predator/prey - can enter cage without worry of being consumed?

Culprit and Ceremony

Jack Prometeria?

  • Magical equivalent of drug factory containers in criminal world. Accurate name of what to summon, calculate necessary numbers/colors/circles/directions/date/etc using many sliders lined up on wall. Boxy space look like planetarium and many lines displayed in dark show where to paint to draw out intricate magic circles on floor/walls/ceiling, become any temple, prepare optimal environment for what want to summon.(2-3)

Tracing summoning (Summoning/Summoner/Summon link?):

  • Containers collapse with first shot, most but ghost ship not vanish, uncollapsed one, grip silver staff and spin on spot
  • Not anyone perform summoning at any time/place, need precisely set up with appropriate direction/time/location for summoning target, magic circle for summoning complex/intricate because essentially writing out a lengthy address to ensure summon target.
  • Iron=Mars, Lead=Saturn, Gunpowder=Sulfuric acid=Sulfur=earth, Ship (quicksilver)=Salt=Ether
  • Apply current latitude/longitude/date to four symbols, check positions of planets
  • Flow of energy most likely to interfere with planet movements, path entering from south and leaving to west-northwest
  • Like using hands of analogue clock and sun's position to determine direction

Five Suspects, Actions/Aspects:

Jack Prometeria: (Sections to be done: Personality, Chronology, Abilities tweaks)

  • Personality
  • Chronology
    • Pt4 (Approached after breaking into container, confirmed five magicians and destruction won't stop): ?
    • Pt8 (Lighthouse, met by Agnese, revealed motivations, learned that ship would never reach): As the Hood was approaching Calais, Jack went to the harbour's lighthouse for its arrival, only to find Agnese waiting for him, having deduced his involvement. He explained his motivations, how his father had served on Hood, how Crowley's symbols had ended up in the ship designs, and how he wished to purify and experience the ship for himself in the remaining time he had left to live. However, he was dismayed to find that the ghost ship would never reach land, due to a flaw from his overcomplication of the summoning ceremony.[14]
    • Pt9: Agnese decided that shock of learning he could never experience the Hood for himself was punishment enough, knowing he did not have enough time left to make a new plan.[15]
  • Abilities
    • Summoning Ceremony (Opening, Hood's qualities, Actions, Summoning Traits (autonomous, functions), Concealment/Combination, Flaws)
    • Other (residual trace)
    • In order to fulfill his wish of purifying and experiencing the ship before his death, Jack devised a complicated summoning ceremony to call forth HMS Hood as a ghost ship.[14]
    • After summoning, the ship would proceed to Calais.
    • Once summoned on...
    • When tracing the summoning site and predicting the composition of the magic circle, Agnese deduced that it included the symbols of iron (Mars), lead (Saturn) and sulfur (from gunpowder and sulfuric acid, and indicating earth) with the ship being salt (ether). The flow of energy followed a path entering from the south and leaving to the west-northwest.[13][14] The individual summoning spells carried out by the unwitting summoners which were making up the ceremony, each providing a symbol, included:[14]
      • Pierre Gosetti: The creation of a protective talisman using Taphthartharath, the Planetary Spirit of Mercury.[12]
      • Rini Calculed: An attempt at inducing astral projection to investigate marks left on the body, involving the alchemical principle of salt.[12]
      • Plum Mordosié: A murder attempt, aiming to extract the target's physical body through three principles (salt, sulfur and mercury) to destabilize them and lead to their own power destroying them.[12]
      • Harris Nicholagene: The creation of mandrakes and attempts to give them a feminine appearance, with claims involving the alchemical principles of sulfur.[12]
      • Rouen Nalberia: Experiments to develop a method of cooking to extract elements from food.[12]

Aleister Crowley/HMS Hood:

  • Five people sharing container attack/abducted but not even know Hood summoned. Calais entranceway linked France and England across 40km Strait of Dover. Fair number of British magicians end up there.
  • Each of five rented out ceremonial ground cover piece of puzzle. Iron, lead, sulfur, salt. Each cover one symbol, none of individual spells look enough to summon Hood. Combined them all - see something else. Like placing multiple panels on top of each other, create a colorful piece of woodblock art. None set up - has to be landlord who views from step removed, master key necessary to manage rented space. All five summoner, none aware, oblivious to position as gear in larger machine. Ignorant. If shoved on small boat, run out of time, not go away.
  • Predicted outbreak of WW1, Hood constructed based on lessons learned during war
  • Ships contains his 'genes', ruinous element of magician who insist entire world must be stained with blood before great ceremony can begin, without it - Hood might be victorious in northern Atlantic (Jack's thought)
  • Name taboo, everyone on magic side benefit from actions, sins too great to earn praise
  • Summon ship, examples but not convincing, summon purely mechanical object with magic circle instead of usual angels, demons or magical elements. If symbolism of Crowley unwittingly included - likely possible. Entirely different level from Charon's ferry or Treasure Ship talismans. Intentional/not, if worked into basic design of ship, could conceivably gain ability to travel to/from some other realm, possible to summon via occult means, though sounding absurd.
  • Summoned in same way as angel/demon, convert from simple physical object to mass of energy - maybe when ship pass to another phase or done by inheriting something from Crowley, must have happened. Rusted hulk at sea floor only small sliver of true power. Exceedingly rare for summonable object to appear naturally - like odds of seeing moment angel descended from heaven. Doubt plan put together on short notice, result of badly wanting to find sunken ship in past?
  • Once thing summoned, generally remain until corresponding exorcism ceremony performed. Requires massive amount of energy to remain in existence in autonomous state.
  • Treasure Ship. Crowley like to travel, visited Japan by ship. Arrangement of symbols transform ship itself into talisman. Instead of having great power to begin with, may gain invincibility similar to original grimoire's. Hood start to lose restriction of numbers, enough that could be used to mass-produce Gabriel talismans one can carry
  • Don't know if inserted will into WW2, but even if coincidence Hood ends up with piece in it, couldn't leave it like that
  • Jack's father decent magician, not mean much. Witches dance in midwinter forests until freeze to death in attempt to delay Third Reich's invasion.
  • Images work into mind, feel like actually experience, can't allow anything to stain reputation of ship father proudly served on - take action on nothing more.
  • Not afraid, moment would come eventually, prefer to spend last moments working to help Hood or die along with it, want to experience - feel like reaching out and touching, phantom not that powerful
  • Destructive landing not happen, massive form on horizon, less than 5km away, max speed of 31 knots - right on top of them yet never seem to arrive at harbor, like mirage oasis moving further away more one pursues it.
  • Largest driving force for summon is probably desire in summoner's heart. Strongly picture target and gather willpower using magic circle and incantation necessary to give physical form. Spell lacking since actual summoners oblivious to Hood's existence. Created spell bound to be full of interfering thoughts. Can create face from montage of different ones but won't be anyone existing. Don't exist, won't find even if put on wanted poster.
  • Overly complicate process out of fear of being caught. Secret base, drag in five others to ensure ceremony continue even if location discovered. Failed. If performed on own, would have arrived and got what wanted. Prepared for every eventuality, excessive planning means not work. Summoning fail from beginning. Shimmering appearance prove, never arrive, wandering ghost ship disappear on own before long.
  • Not do it after all, only hear stories, generation had it easy, presumptuous to think could purify.(Pt8)
  • Current era built on former, obsession with past even if those who actually lived there gone. Necromancer job to fulfil that kind of desire/regrets - summon father or Hood crew, loss due to Crowley curse dragging down or lack of strength.
  • Disappear without trace, scars of destruction all that remains. Shock of learning never experience punishment enough. No time left to put together new plan.(Pt9)

Voodoo

Principles:

  • Assimilation (tweak misconception paragraph)
  • Deities (Loa/Mystere)
  • Curses and Drugs (Ba Moun, Doll)

[6]

Voodoo is described as not actually having fixed teachings or spells,[17] being a culture that draws in other cultures,[18] borrowing gods and ceremonies from other mythologies and religions, and adding to them while making them its own to continually expand.[17] Isabella Theism, a necromancer who uses a mix of Voodoo and Christianity, has highlighted the affinity and called Voodoo a greedy religion that takes in every last miracle it comes across.[6]

Voodoo is known for having many curses.[19][17] The Ceremony of Ba Moun is considered the worst and most wicked spell in Voodoo and its most horrific curse,[19][17] where a magician makes a contract with a demon which will grant them their every wish in exchange for the magician annually sacrificing someone they care for, being devoured by the demon if they fail to carry out the sacrifice.[20][19][17]

  • Voodoo Doll - actually common idea of unknown root that has spread and is also found elsewhere

As well as curses, Voodoo has a variety of drugs and concoctions,[7](Other Ref?) from wound-healing paste mixed from different vegetables and meat,[7] to a deadly poison created from a single lime growing on a tree.[17][7] One of the most notable is zombie powder, which is used in the creation of zombies - one of the most well-known specialities associated with Voodoo.[21][19][6][7] Rather than making corpses rise from the dead,[19][6][7][Non-Agnese SS ref] as is often thought of with zombies,[19][Non-Agnese SS ref] chemicals are used to intentionally harm the body and remove the Ti Bon Ange from the five components of the soul,[6] putting a person into a state of pseudo-death, robbing them of their mind and remaking them into a living unit which can be controlled.[6][7]

Ceremony of Ba Moun

The Ceremony of Ba Moun (バ・ムーンの儀式 Ba Mūn no Gishiki?) is a Voodoo ceremony which involves a contract with a demon. Described as the worst and most wicked spell in Voodoo, the demon grants the caster's wishes, but in return they must annually sacrifice someone they care for, otherwise they will be devoured by the demon.[20][19][22][17][6][7]

Principles Draft:

  • Opening
  • Outline
  • Specifics
    • Spell
    • Demon
  • Pt5
    • Suspect might die if look, sharp end[22]
    • Sound like baby - more malevolent, more than hackneyed monster like giant spider[22]
    • Cannot let self know - thinking name in mind would steal soul. as far from human warmth as anything could, cry like baby seem like serial killer trying/failing to pretend to be harmless neighbor[22]
    • Understanding not reveal path to survival - close off fate and guide to doom faster, no thinking way out[22]
  • Pt7
    • Isabella not have countermeasure against Voodoo demon, not matter if master Voodoo, spell someone created but can't control[6]
    • Rocket - moon/bust, situation pressing such that need wish granted ASAP, meteor/sick daughter, not wait a day longer, way of feeling satisfied with even halfway decent result, not rely on poorly-defined demon if situation not pressing, pressing situation - unable to examine if worth price, fail once - lose everything, not in a position to properly consider risks when make decision, only learn price paid after act - too late[6]
    • 'Grant heart's desire' - vague, not much when look into it[6]
    • Medicine/Poison seen as same, master of mythology -gods/demons as same basic thing?[6]
    • Affinity, greedy religion[6]

Character Chronology TSPs:

  • Helm Himmel: Himmel greeted Agnese Sanctis, Lucia and Angelene when they came to his bank to access the Anglican remote database in one of the vaults, and at Agnese's request, slipped her his key while openly feigning ignorance.[23]
  • Monica: Monica was spying on Agnese, Lucia and Angelene, while they were in Zurich, Switzerland, visiting an Anglican remote database to investigate a possible link between the recent cases they had been involved in.[23][24] When they decided to go out for lunch, at a dead end in their research, Monica was a couple of tables away, in the same restaurant they visited and was noticed by Agnese. As Agnese discretely told Lucia and Angelene who was behind them, Monica looked up from her drink, saw Agnese was onto her, and immediately ran out of the restaurant. With Agnese and the others pursuing her, she fled down an alley and used a spell to tear off her face.[24][25] Though she escaped, her spell gave her pursuers a lead to follow.[25]
