I wanted to give an update as to my progress. I’ve made contact with the group that we suspected were looking into the ashes, and I can safely confirm their involvement. Their motives are unknown at this time, though I can see they are groping for purpose. One of them, a mage of an unknown (but potentially troubling) tradition, seems to “need” the ashes. I’ll watch him closely.
More importantly, the Exarchs should know I was involved in the assault on Abbott Labratories. We encountered another group who also made an attempt to acquire the ashes… they were subdued and have been detained, for what I can only imagine will be very unfriendly questioning. However; during the battle many dual natured beings were released and escaped through vents using a mist form. You know what this means…
I fear our involvement has had… unintended consequences. I would advise increased astral overwatch in Kiev. Also; I’ve not asked what your intentions are for the ashes, out of respect. That being said; I believe their destruction should be our number one priority, any other designs for the ashes simply cannot be trusted.
