[ 2015.11.17 04:07:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote reads it. She stiffens slightly and gives Velerra a sharp glance. She rises with the carafe in one hand and a wine glass on the other. "Shall we go to the back room, Ms. Velarra?"
[ 2015.11.17 04:08:26 ] Velarra > /emote nods > I suspect that would be best for all concerned.
[ 2015.11.17 04:10:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote makes her way to the back room and opens the door.
[ 2015.11.17 04:10:49 ] Velarra > /emote rises and follows in due course
[ 2015.11.17 04:11:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote firmly closes the door.

Listener: Lunarisse Aspenstar
Session started: 2015.11.17 04:10:08
[ 2015.11.17 04:10:08 ] EVE System > Channel MOTD: A cloistered backroom at the Holy Grape in the Emperor Family Station in the Amarr system.The walls of the dimly lit room are paneled with dark wood. Comfortable leather arm chairs are arrayed by low tables. Ash trays are present for those who wish to smoke cigars. Bookshelves line two walls and wine cellars line the others.
[ 2015.11.17 04:11:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote places her carafe on a table. She is still holding her wine glass. "I confess it's not every day an Angel sends me a letter of interest"
[ 2015.11.17 04:12:29 ] Velarra > /emote follows along wordlessly and takes a moment to let the door close behind them...
[ 2015.11.17 04:13:06 ] Velarra > I suspected it might be a surprise.
[ 2015.11.17 04:13:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote leans against a bookshelf "I won't pretend it's not an issue. We are known as a lawful Empire Corporation. While I am sure you have unique talents" she adds diplomatically "Why the Society?"
[ 2015.11.17 04:15:55 ] Velarra > You are balanced, good people and we share this part of the cluster.
[ 2015.11.17 04:16:29 ] Velarra > I need an anchor.
[ 2015.11.17 04:17:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am aware you are Achuran yes? Are you of the Faith at all?"
[ 2015.11.17 04:17:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I do not know your background forgive me. I do know we have enclaves in the Empire"
[ 2015.11.17 04:18:00 ] Velarra > The truth is, i am a Pilot.
[ 2015.11.17 04:19:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. She sips her wine.
[ 2015.11.17 04:19:41 ] Velarra > I am, yes. Achura. But that was another time and place.
[ 2015.11.17 04:19:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly. "What do you mean?"
[ 2015.11.17 04:22:15 ] Velarra > I'm a Pilot.
[ 2015.11.17 04:22:34 ] Velarra > /emote shakes her head slightly > Which doesn't help you...understand.
[ 2015.11.17 04:22:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chuckles "it doesn't
[ 2015.11.17 04:23:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We are a corporation that me different from what most capsuleers expect."
[ 2015.11.17 04:24:07 ] Velarra > And without context this Kill: Velarra (Capsule) will not help to entirely explain it either.
[ 2015.11.17 04:24:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We have a specific mission - to advance the Faith and the interests of the Empire" She pauses "No, it doesn't. Although I do note Ms. Jenneth is now with the Society'
[ 2015.11.17 04:25:37 ] Velarra > /emote nods > I am glad she is with you. You are good for her i think.
[ 2015.11.17 04:26:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Do you mind if I have a colleage join us? She.. is a former Angel"
[ 2015.11.17 04:26:48 ] Velarra > Her old presence influenced my road.
[ 2015.11.17 04:27:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I sort of would like a second set of ears on this application." She glances at Velarra.
[ 2015.11.17 04:27:01 ] Velarra > Who?
[ 2015.11.17 04:27:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Karmilla Strife.
[ 2015.11.17 04:27:10 ] Velarra > Of course.
[ 2015.11.17 04:25:20 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote enters the Holy Grape and grabs a glass of house red wine as she looks around for someone.
[ 2015.11.17 04:26:16 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote receives instructions and heads toward the back room.
[ 2015.11.17 04:27:14 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote *super secret knocks*
[ 2015.11.17 04:27:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote opens the door and lets Karmilla in.
[ 2015.11.17 04:33:11 ] Lady Templar > * Watches Karmilla Strife with a hit of bemusment, then signals a menber of staff to bring a Tea service "Khanid or Caldari, its grown from the same gene stock"
[ 2015.11.17 04:41:23 ] Lady Templar > * Sips her tea, pondering the Silver Magnate hanging above the bar
[ 2015.11.17 05:00:08 ] Lady Templar > * Having finished her tea, heads over to the bar, to closer inspect the Silver Magnate. She closes her eyes and puts her hands together and bows her head.
[ 2015.11.17 05:08:04 ] Lady Templar > * Offers a quiet prayer "By God's own word are heirs kept pure. By God's own plan do heirs endure. By gods own test that heirs have died. By gods own truth that Emperors rise. Khanid Invictus, Imperator Rex"
[ 2015.11.17 05:10:04 ] Lady Templar > * Thanks the waiting staff for the exceedingly good tea, settles up and exits the establishment.
**** THE BACKROOM***
[ 2015.11.17 04:27:41 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote is clearly amused as the door opens.
[ 2015.11.17 04:27:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote opens the door in response to the kocks.
[ 2015.11.17 04:28:17 ] Karmilla Strife > wow!
[ 2015.11.17 04:28:36 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Hello Karmilla." She glances at the pair "Do you two know each other?"
[ 2015.11.17 04:28:37 ] Karmilla Strife > You know, I've been a spy, but that was something I've always wanted to do.
[ 2015.11.17 04:29:13 ] Karmilla Strife > hmm?
[ 2015.11.17 04:29:16 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote looks
[ 2015.11.17 04:29:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote giggles involuntarily at Karmilla's remark.
[ 2015.11.17 04:29:33 ] Velarra > /emote looks to Karmilla in turn as well
[ 2015.11.17 04:30:13 ] Karmilla Strife > I'm sorry,
[ 2015.11.17 04:30:17 ] Velarra > I do not believe we've had the opportunity, with due respect.
[ 2015.11.17 04:30:29 ] Karmilla Strife > I don't think we've met before.
[ 2015.11.17 04:30:41 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Karmilla, please be introduced to Velarra. She's applied to the Society." She pauses "I think she and your husband have some affiliations in common, main'ly the Angel Cartel"
[ 2015.11.17 04:31:13 ] Karmilla Strife > Ok, you were in Naraka?
[ 2015.11.17 04:31:22 ] Velarra > /emote nods > Yes.
[ 2015.11.17 04:31:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > 'I was interviewing her just now. Do tyou mind sitting in and listening with me?" She smiles wryly at Karmilla. Also knowing Karmilla will know what Luna left unsaid about Karmilla's background.
[ 2015.11.17 04:31:42 ] Karmilla Strife > Uhh, sure.
[ 2015.11.17 04:31:59 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote takes a sip of her wine brought in from the next room.
[ 2015.11.17 04:33:16 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Ms. Velerra, to get back to where I was" she frowns remembering "While our usual applicant has a demonstrated history of Faith and loyalty to the Empire, I've made exceptions for reasons. Usually where I think the applicant is a candidate to either -c
[ 2015.11.17 04:33:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > join the fold or return to it." She glances at Velerra "The Angel Cartel is not known for relinquishing its members lightly. Where do you plan to go on your road?"
[ 2015.11.17 04:34:25 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote looks toward Lunarisse but stays silent.
[ 2015.11.17 04:36:58 ] Velarra > Formally speaking, I hold a strong interest in the well being of the Amarr Empire, and hold no issue with its faith which i respect a great deal. I am Angel, Yet honestly, I am a Pilot first.
[ 2015.11.17 04:38:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote tilts her head slightly "I've heard you mentioned that three times now. What do you mean?"
[ 2015.11.17 04:39:50 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am a pilot first?"\
[ 2015.11.17 04:40:26 ] Velarra > I am someone trying to stay sane, level minded and healthy while not denying what i am. As a Capsuleer.
[ 2015.11.17 04:41:21 ] Velarra > I dearly recognize that you, and your corporation are a group of good people. Sane, and level minded. Who share the same space that i do.
[ 2015.11.17 04:42:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "While I geniunely appreciate that perception of us. There is a reason we are that way. Our spiritual foundation,"
[ 2015.11.17 04:42:33 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote looks to Lunarisse. "Within the empire, politics and belief run hand in hand. I have found that the more one operates outside the Empire, the more one recognizes that sometimes politics and beliefs diverge."
[ 2015.11.17 04:43:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns slightly, mulling over both Velerra's and Karmilla's remarks.
[ 2015.11.17 04:43:35 ] Karmilla Strife > There are many with political allegiances outside the Empire who still seek a sense of community, or spiritual purpose.
[ 2015.11.17 04:44:02 ] Karmilla Strife > We don't have a monopoly on these concepts, but are well known for them.
[ 2015.11.17 04:44:34 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly and asks Velerra "would you be willing to undertake lessons in the Faith or engage in spiritual exercises meant to introduce you to it?"
[ 2015.11.17 04:45:12 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote looks to Velarra. "Is this of interest to you?"
[ 2015.11.17 04:47:02 ] Velarra > I'm trying to stay sane.... It's possible i've been slipping lately. I recognize that i need to keep myself around good people whom i share common interests with. Integration. I would not be adverse to exercises as you suggest.
[ 2015.11.17 04:48:07 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote looks to Lunarisse. "May I?"
[ 2015.11.17 04:48:14 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes."
[ 2015.11.17 04:50:02 ] Karmilla Strife > I was an Archangel, I flew with Naraka for several months. Later I flew with URIEL. My husband is a Domination Seraphim. I know that the Cartel looks after their own. Why come to SFRIM instead of Curse?
[ 2015.11.17 04:52:23 ] Velarra > It's much harder to slip here, the consequences too substantial. But simply existing here closed off, is a temporary solution to finding some balance. Healthy socialization with other moderately balanced pilots would be a good thing.
[ 2015.11.17 04:53:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at Karmilla.
[ 2015.11.17 04:56:06 ] Velarra > In Curse, no one cares what i do, at least in terms of human decency and sanity.
[ 2015.11.17 04:56:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Are you prepared to adhere to the Empire's laws while you are a member of the Society?"
[ 2015.11.17 04:56:59 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote nods.
[ 2015.11.17 04:57:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "This includes with respect to Slavery"
[ 2015.11.17 04:59:11 ] Velarra > Yes.
[ 2015.11.17 04:59:58 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And you have any potential.. grudges or issues with my current members I need to know about? For example: Kill: Velarra (Capsule) "
[ 2015.11.17 05:00:59 ] Velarra > She was my second as it was necessary as a matter of honor.
[ 2015.11.17 05:01:25 ] Velarra > For the first time i slipped..
[ 2015.11.17 05:02:05 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks puzzled "What do you mean?"
[ 2015.11.17 05:02:07 ] Velarra > I have nothing but the utmost respect for her as a Pilot.
[ 2015.11.17 05:03:28 ] Velarra > I murdered thousands of Caldari and did not appreciate the gravity untill much later. I knew the courts could not touch me as a Capsuleer for we are all given Clearance Documents .
[ 2015.11.17 05:03:55 ] Velarra > But it was a terrible sin.
[ 2015.11.17 05:05:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks at Karmilla.
[ 2015.11.17 05:05:27 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote looks to Lunarisse. "You should respect the word and honor of Angels. When one lives outside the law, all one has is their own word and their own strength. A Naraka pilot is blacklisted the moment they break their word..."
[ 2015.11.17 05:05:58 ] Velarra > She was witness and executioner for my crime. Shizu Takeuchi's crime. Today I am Velarra. A Pilot.
[ 2015.11.17 05:06:40 ] Karmilla Strife > "I believe she is sincere and would support her being a member of the Societas. If she burns us, I'll take responsibility."
[ 2015.11.17 05:07:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says softly "You seem sincere and you are willing to abide by the Empire's laws and to engage in spiritual exercises to learn the faith..." She listens to karmilla and nods "I would like to discuss with the other directors, -c
[ 2015.11.17 05:07:12 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > but I do not think I have any other questions tonight."
[ 2015.11.17 05:07:18 ] Karmilla Strife > You took me in after Silas.
[ 2015.11.17 05:07:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes."
[ 2015.11.17 05:07:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "And I took Ms. Jenneth in as well."
[ 2015.11.17 05:07:39 ] Karmilla Strife > This is less risky than both
[ 2015.11.17 05:07:46 ] Velarra > /emote looks up > I will be honest and explicit with you...lest there is confusion at another time...
[ 2015.11.17 05:09:09 ] Velarra > I am an Angel. I am a Pilot. And i am interested in your teachings as methods of focus and balance. It would be wrong of me to admit to more.
[ 2015.11.17 05:10:32 ] Velarra > I will however honor my word to be respectful of your rules and regulations.
[ 2015.11.17 05:10:39 ] Karmilla Strife > Is it your intent to cause harm to the Societas or to the Amarr Empire?
[ 2015.11.17 05:10:56 ] Velarra > No. No harm what so ever.
[ 2015.11.17 05:11:14 ] Karmilla Strife > You know that I can hold you to that?
[ 2015.11.17 05:11:20 ] Velarra > Yes.
[ 2015.11.17 05:12:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly after Velarra and Karmilla finish speaking "I will need to discuss this with the Directors. I am willing to consider your application seriously." She gives Velarra a solemn look.
[ 2015.11.17 05:13:26 ] Velarra > /emote offers Luna a deep bow in return.
[ 2015.11.17 05:13:32 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote smiles.
[ 2015.11.17 05:13:43 ] Karmilla Strife > I hope to work with you again soon!
[ 2015.11.17 05:13:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote curtseys. "Have a Blessed night each of you."
[ 2015.11.17 05:14:14 ] Velarra > The night be kind to you.
[ 2015.11.17 05:14:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote makes her way to the door and opens it.
[ 2015.11.17 05:14:51 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote finishes her glass of wine and goes off in search of another.
[ 2015.11.17 05:14:57 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Karmilla, if you could remain a moment?"
[ 2015.11.17 05:15:08 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote stops in mid stride...
[ 2015.11.17 05:15:09 ] Velarra > /emote moves to head out in due course
[ 2015.11.17 05:15:15 ] Karmilla Strife > "ok"
[ 2015.11.17 05:16:27 ] Karmilla Strife > What's up?
[ 2015.11.17 05:16:39 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote exhales. "You know me, I want to try to expose people to the Faith and the Empire. But I knew you were undercover and I knew you were of the Faith. I also knew Aria was not the person she was before and was seeking to establish a new identify"
[ 2015.11.17 05:17:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am having difficulty with this one. Although she seems like soil that may be receptive to the seed of faith over time...."
[ 2015.11.17 05:17:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "What do you think of her?"
[ 2015.11.17 05:18:42 ] Karmilla Strife > I always give the benefit of doubt to anyone approaching the Faith on their own. Even if they are insincere, which I doubt this is the case, they will hear our message.
[ 2015.11.17 05:18:55 ] Karmilla Strife > look to our history.
[ 2015.11.17 05:19:07 ] Karmilla Strife > Only the Khanid came to us of their own accord
[ 2015.11.17 05:19:16 ] Karmilla Strife > and look how that turned out
[ 2015.11.17 05:19:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods thoughtfully and then flashes a dangerous grin at Karmilla. "Well.. that's a complicated one.' She giggles involuntarily.
[ 2015.11.17 05:20:10 ] Karmilla Strife > the Khanid people didn't turn away, just the individual who took their name as his own.
[ 2015.11.17 05:20:30 ] Karmilla Strife > and he shouldn't be around much longer.
[ 2015.11.17 05:20:38 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
[ 2015.11.17 05:20:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Well I am inclined to do give this a chance. I do want to talk to Reinheart and Lucas, which is what i did before when I had... an unusual application".
[ 2015.11.17 05:21:12 ] Karmilla Strife > I think that is wise
[ 2015.11.17 05:21:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Thank you for coming on such short notice. I appreciate it"
[ 2015.11.17 05:21:49 ] Karmilla Strife > One other thing
[ 2015.11.17 05:22:32 ] Karmilla Strife > Don't shame her.
[ 2015.11.17 05:22:44 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Understood." She nods.
[ 2015.11.17 05:22:49 ] Karmilla Strife > let her confront her own sins in her own time.
[ 2015.11.17 05:23:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods again.
[ 2015.11.17 05:23:09 ] Karmilla Strife > A title of "penitent" or whatever... is poison
[ 2015.11.17 05:23:23 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I am going to give her the same title as Aria"
[ 2015.11.17 05:23:33 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Perigrinans - a visitor to the empire and the faith"
[ 2015.11.17 05:23:57 ] Karmilla Strife > I think that is approprate.
[ 2015.11.17 05:25:36 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote smiles. "Thank you for involving me in this."
[ 2015.11.17 05:26:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I appreciate it, and I appreciate you promise to take responsibility for her"
[ 2015.11.17 05:27:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "Have a good night Karmilla"
[ 2015.11.17 05:27:46 ] Karmilla Strife > Good night
[ 2015.11.17 05:27:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote opens the door again and makes her away out.
[ 2015.11.17 05:28:17 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote makes her way back into the main room.
[ 2015.11.17 05:28:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote re-enters. She has a thoughtful look on her face.
[ 2015.11.17 05:28:34 ] Karmilla Strife > /emote follows Lunarisse into the main room.
[ 2015.11.17 05:28:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote's eyes flicker over the Silver Magnate, her face expressionless. She exits.
