He didn't need to ask for Lucille's father because her father was the one that served the Pink Lady to Nicholas. But there he was, asking if he needed anything, maybe some peanuts, maybe some bacon, or... information, maybe?

Looking at the goggles around Nicholas' neck, he says, "So I understand there's something of my daughter you wish to know about?"

"Pardon the intrusion, sir." he began and removed the goggles from around his neck and placed them on the counter. "I was acquainted with your daughter at Eagleopolis and I've sort of lost contact with her before I could get some questions answered. Mr. Lagrange, do you think you could tell me how your daughter got her powers, and who exactly she got them from?"

A long pause as his eyes shift around, and Marcus sighs. "Of course. So long as you tell me what happened to her after I tell you what you want to know.

"It was about four or so years ago and Lucille was here at the casino learning how to be a dealer. She hangs around here at the bar whenever she isn't on her job, and one night with low traffic an old man hobbles into the building. He goes straight to the bar and asks for our strongest drink; I want to deny him such because he already looks like he should be hospitalized, but business is business. I serve him the drink, and he explains who he is. He never states his real name nor his super name, but he explains that he was a superhero from somewhere around the west coast and came here as something on his bucket list.

"And he takes a hard, long look at my daughter; naturally, I get worried. Who is this guy, I think? And before I know it, the old man has died of heart failure without even finishing his drink and Lucille's passed out. 911 was called, the old man was taken somewhere, either the hospital or the morgue, and my daughter was taken to the hospital as well. She wakes up with nothing wrong, but then she starts cupping her ears saying that it's so loud, it's so loud... this was when I realized that whatever just happened back here, this old man had died and my own daughter gained super powers in the process. She goes home with a clean bill of health and it's from here that she just... stays home for a couple of months, just trying to cope with what she was just given. By the time she's working here again, her powers went from being able to hear thoughts to things like... like telekinesis and fire and lightning and... even now, I still can't really understand what just happened.

"Out of anyone in this place, in this state, in this country... why her?"

Almost assuredly getting everything he expected to get from this man, or from anyone in this city - alive, that is, the man began to speak.

"Of course, of course."

"As to to the whereabouts of your daughter, I do not know. I am rather confident we will meet up again, but I can't be too sure. There was a madman raising a cult in Eagleopolis. Eventually, he got bored with the city, and your daughter and I did our best to bring him down, and we did-we did. But, not without a cost. I witnessed you daughter die; she was reduced to mere ash right before my eyes, completely obliterated save for those goggles."

Nicholas watched as the man's quizzical expression shifted into sadness.

"But, I saw her again, alive as ever in a town in Oregon called Hot Spring harbor. She seemed...okay, but a bit worse for wear and looking rather pale. I don't understand exactly how that happened, but I couldn't very well stay and ask, because...she was with Zealot, and there was a boy there, and I had to get him and myself out of there, and as you might know I'm a busy..."

He paused, his speech was starting to pick up speed. He didn't want to sound too abnormal; his true form would spook the locals and invalidate the entire persona. Regaining composure, he continued.

"Sorry."

"Like I said, I'm a busy man and had to get out of there quick. I would've certainly gone back for her, but when I returned the lab was a restricted crime scene and she was gone."

He reasoned that the phrases "Zealot", "died", "crime scene" and "gone" might be cause for alarm, but hoped he had already mitigated fears that the girl was dead. He himself didn't know that.

There was a long, uncomfortable silence. Anyone nearby listening also went silent, looking at Nicholas with skepticism.

This was all too much information to take in at once. Marcus took a deep breath and told Nicholas, "Thank you for the information. At least I can say that my daughter died doing something good and she's back alive, but... with Zealot? What could a man like him possibly want with someone like her? ...unless..." His eyes widened and he slammed his elbows on the counter, holding his head with his hands. "Wait until the wife and niece hears this. Thank you all the same, and... if you do see her, please tell her to come back home, if only for a few days."

The patrons who heard all this happening looked at Marcus with a kind of sadness you didn't find commonly around this place.

On Nicholas' hand, the eye Virgie previously planted faded away, manually dismissed.

Nicholas offered a consoling pat on the shoulder and placed some money on the counter, leaving the drink untouched as he lifted out of his stool and casually strolled to his vehicle, leaving the city. There was little else that he'd learn here, but at least for now he knew that the meta-humans in some places were keeping themselves in check.

Eventually he's investigate the sudden explosion of meta-human activity, but not today. Even with no national crises to attend to at the he still had things to attend to, and, like he said, he'd cross paths with Signal eventually; such is the way of the cape.

Blast away, to a time when Saho exited the diner and presumably nothing happened because he has a lot of free time; he figured it was time to investigate the other outlets of Lucille "Lucy" Lagrange.

"Lucy Lucielle, Lucy Lucielle, wherefor art thou..." Saho...you know that's not her last name, right?

"I know, but it sounds so nice, doesn't it? Lucy Lucielle! It just rolls off the tongue! It feels good to say." So you knew the whole time?

"Yup" Then why did you have Basset investigate a "Lucy Lucielle"?

"Because she doesn't exist!" So...all the information is fake?

"No, it's real. I just changed the names." To someone who doesn't exist?

"Yup" Why?

"I wanna see if Cindy Loo-Cakes catches it." Ohhhh...

To give some context; Saho had rented out a private jet to fly over to Vegas and investigate the known relatives of Lucy Lagrange....Yeah. An entire jet all to himself. Well, I guess he's richer than I though-

"We're here, Mr. Surge." ...

"Excellent! Open the doors and get out of my way! Saho sped through the murderous waitress on his crippie-chair and rammed the emergency doors of the plane, breaking them open and sliding down the fun slide thing; doing a wheelie, he then trigger the rockets in his chair and sped off to find triple L." Saho was then calmly escorted by the stewardess who rolled his wheelchair while he gasps and panted from being so close to a woman. Anyways, he then ditched the wheelchair some distance away and began walking towards the known location of one 'Virgie Lagrange".....and by walking; I mean creeping around outside both their's and their's neighbor's home, looking through their trash.

Virgie had been minding her own business, browsing the internet for more commonly accepted symbols that, applied with magic, wouldn't have shit powers. As usual, nothing of interest turned up that she didn't already have jotted or scribbled in her little black book. She did keep a webcomic with a massive following on watch due to its prominent use of symbols; some of them were very creative ("Why didn't I think of that before?") and others were more unorthodox. All the same, she bookmarked the site and decided to head out and get some fresh air.

It had only been a few hours since Nicholas stopped by Vegas and, upon stepping outside, there was another weirdo here (though, considering who she is, does she really have room to talk?). This time, he was digging through the trash.

Virgilia Balentine sighed. This is too much.

She took out her book, dragged and slapped on her left arm; it appeared on her right and both faded away. She stormed over to the mysterious man, grabbed him by his (shitty) cloak, and easily lifted him in the air. "Okay, tell me who you are, why you're digging through my trash, and why I shouldn't just punch your face in regardless." The buff would go away in about a minute so she had to make this quick.

"Oh my god, I've done it! I CAN FINALLY FLY WITH MY MIND!" Saho, struggling a bit, turns around to see....the woman he was looking for.

"Hey, you're not Lulu. You're the other way. Virgin or something. Hey! I can fly now, amazing, huh? Now mom will be impressed! I can sweep Bassycakes off her feet! SAHO MANGE, THE WORLD'S GREATEST FLYING DETECTIVE!" He then shot his arms out to his sides and made airplane noises

"By the way Siggy, is your wifey-foo an evil murdering vampire lord?" He manages to calmly say that inbetween going WOOSH and VROOM.

Virgilia began to laugh. Unlike Lucy's more modest chuckle or giggle, Virgie's was loud and haughty, like that of someone from– "Hush." Wh-what? "HUSH." Oh, okay. Gonna keep that secret still, fine.

"Goodness, it's like talking to a five-year-old in a grown man's body. You're Saho Mange? I've heard about you, but I expected someone a little more... Holmes-y. Especially compared to Basset." She lets go of Saho, the Jupiter buff soon fading away.

"But no, my cousin is NOT a murdering vampire lord. My cousin's not even a vampire!" 'Unless Nicholas knew something he wasn't telling me...in which case...' "But please, do tell what you seem to know about Lucy. I had a visitor drop by not too long ago inquiring about her and he seems to have... not told me things. Shame, since I'm family just as much as Marcus and Danita are. I'm just from a more distant branch."

"As Saho landed, disappointed that he wasn't actually an airplane; he turns to Siggy. But I'm better than Bassycakes! See?" He pulls out his phone and, within a few seconds, shoves it before Virgilia's face. "GREATEST DETECTIVE EVER! See, I'm in the lead!...wait...now I'm not.......okay now I am...wait....wait.....okay, now I've lost....but just wait 10 seconds and I-okay I'm the greatest again." Get on with it, Saho.

"As Saho puts his phone away; he turns back to Siggy. A truly powerful being of....power, Saho knows he must be very cautious. Very careful. But yes. I believe that your wifefy-foo might be an evil, murderous vampire lord. Or that you are, it's either one or the other but-HYAH!" With great speed and unpredictability he splashes water towards Viriglia. Holy water.

Virgie stands unshaken as holy water is splashed on her face. She is a witch, not a vampire, get your facts straight.

"I'm not a vampire. Try that again and you'll pay dearly for it. Even so, what proof do you have that Lucy is one?"

She takes out her black book again, pulling out the same symbol as before, this time snapping her fingers. Jupiter's mark flies up into a cloudless sky. "And please, do come into my house. I insist."

There has to be someone else, ANYONE ELSE who needs a narrator...Saho...I...I can't take this anymore.

"...what."

Virgilia calmly walked into her house, pinching the bridge of her nose in shame. This man had some serious issues. Freud would be damn ashamed (or proud?) of a man like Saho. As she stepped inside, Virgie produced in her hand and began to blow-dry her hair, dismissing the symbol as soon as she was done.

"Yes, I do have a computer. But I also have a laptop for public use. Let me go fetch it." She steps over to a door and opens it. Inside is the basement, or what would look like a basement if it wasn't filled so many books. Seriously, how many books has Sigil stolen over the years!? (Answer: it is a mystery) She steps out of the basement holding a used laptop and hands it to Saho. "I've got wi-fi set up here and everything. Anything else you need, or is that all?" Much as she hated Saho being here now, she was a guest... and he had information. Or, what seemed like information.

"....anything?..." No, oh god no.

"...." Saho stares at her intensely and wordlessly, contemplating the full reaches of the word 'anything'. Obviously, one must choose their words carefully when dealing with someone like him.

"...." He continued to gaze at her in an uncomfortable silence for what seemed like hours (in actuality it was only a few minutes) before meekly saying,

"...N-No..." It seems he had lost all confidence he previously had. I suppose he had the time to understand and realize the situation. He was alone with someone; he never takes that well, but with a 'her' it's even worse. Painful and haunting memories flew back to him; and he shrunk back away from Virgilia in fear. He did, however, manage to hook up her laptop to one of the externals he brought, and opened a blue folder. There, hundreds of .docxs were saved all about things like, "How Lucy stole my lunch money when I was 3" to other, more plausible things like "How Lucy actually assassinated President Lincoln. Eventually, he made his way to a subfolder titled "Lord Signal" and opened it; that one only have about 8 or so .docxs.

".....um..." Obviously uncomfortable and scared, he more or less tries to signal that this was the information he had gather. Theory upon theory of how Lucy could've massacred all of the people in Eagle and several in Orchid; or how she could've been framed, or how she might've prevented it, or how she didn't. Each document played out like a story; each retelling the events of Eagleopolis and Signal's role in them different; sometimes a protagonist, sometimes an antagonist, sometimes for heroic reasons, sometimes for evil ones. 'Valencruz" was never named, and in all of them, the 'cult' either belonged to Lucy or didn't exist.

No matter which version Viriglia may believe, or none at all; all of them present facts and evidence that is very hard to discount with the information currently known about Eagle and all of them have the same following variables: "Lucy was in Eagleopolis and she directly affected the death and destruction of the entire city, later, mysterious and extravagant murders began to happen in Orchid all of which involving the phrase "Lord Signal".

Virgie looked over Saho's shoulder, eyeing the documents. "It looks like my cousin really got herself in a pickle... or didn't. Either way, it does at least partially explain what she did during her visit to Eagleopolis." Orchid City was, admittedly, a new place she hadn't heard of. She would need to look into this later.

"I know my cousin, though. Lucy wouldn't ever be a villain... couldn't, actually. She once ran over a dog—poor thing was sick anyways from what the vet said—and cried for days about it; never left her room until I had to drag her out and remind her that she does have a job. And she's far too modest to start calling herself Lord Signal, powers or not..."

This was a lot to take in all the same. She sat down on the couch and began to think.

"Saho took in several breaths, much calmer now that a she-monster was farther away from him....okay...
Do you know anything about a lord signal? See, I think it's a puzzle. Lord Signal. But theres another part to that, 'All hail'

Try it like this. The full phrase is, "All hail Lord Signal." It sounds like, "Lord Signal" would be a person but...
Hail definitely implies that they're greeting or saluting 'Lord Signal' but it can also mean "to call out to in order to stop", like to stop Lord Signal.

Next is the masculine title 'Lord'. Why not 'Lady'? Or, better yet, why even name herself? Why Signal instead of Lucy? Maybe it's means the word 'signal'?. Maybe the phrase means to stop the signalling of the Lord. Or to greet the signalling of the Lord. Or to do X with Lord Signal." Saho seemed to be very happy when talking about stuff like this.

"Basically, I don't think the phrase refers to Lulu specifically; I think it means that we should embrace/stop the signalling of "Lord". But I don't think it was a coincidence that it mimics the deaths that happened in Eagleopolis; or that it mentions a being named 'Signal' that happened in Eagle. The capitalization is too precise for that. I think someone is using Signal AS a "Lord signal" not that she IS "Lord Signal"....but....what 'Lord' does she signify? Or what lord is she signalling?" Well goddamn Saho....I'm...impressed

"That is an impressive analysis." Virgie clapped, honestly surprised at his train of logic. "If indeed these hails are not referring to Signal herself but as to signal a lord... then who? Who, or what, could drive a group of people to murder and suicide with such extravagance? I'd like to say magic was involved, but... well, you don't seem to be the type to take that as a possible answer."

Outside, clouds began to float over Vegas and began to rain. 'Finally,' Virgie thought.

"I'd even go so far as to say that whoever did this was certainly not human. And if they were, they had given up their humanity ages ago."

"There's no such thing as magic. If you repeat a process and have the same results it's a science. Stupid little symbols and hocus-pocus...we'll break them down someday. Few thousand years ago flight was magic, then space travel; way before that the Earth was flat. We'll find out what makes stuff tick; eventually. 'Magic' is nothing but a place-holder term until the day we think of a proper word for it." Saho seems different, somehow. Why? It's because theres a computer in front of him. Saho operates wonderfully when he's with a computer. They're cold; emotionless, always there for him, give him anything he wants, love him unconditionally, allow him to live life without meeting any other people...and aren't a person. Why do you think he prefers to spend all day locked in a dark room with only a computer?

"As for who wants Lulu....I dunno. I feel like she would though; maybe she could clear up some of my mysteries from Eagle too. That's why I'm here; to try to.....find...." Saho instinctively closed the laptop (stupid) and gazes back at Virgilia; once again, he remember he's absolutely terrified of women.

Well, it's not like he doesn't have a good reason to be.


"....ah..." He recoils, flinching away from her and motioning towards the door; but he stops and starts to whisper in a 'comforting feminine voice'.

"Not yet Saho; you still need to find out what she knows about Lulu...."

"...y-yeah..."

"Besides, you don't like old hags right? Imagine if you're right? You'll have saved Lulu's life. She'd do ANYTHING to repay you."

"N-no! Of course not! DFC for life!" Saho manages to calms himself down and...

"LISTEN UP; NO MEANS NO AND I WANT TO KNOW WHERE YOUR YOUNGER, SEXIER, TIGHTER, AND FLATTER COUSIN IS SO I CAN WARN/INVESTIGATE/PROPOSE TO HER!" ....Just when you start to have hope for him..

"That may be true, but there are certain things science has yet to explain, and I haven't seen you try to explain wha—"

Did he just seriously call Virgie an 'old hag'?

"I'm not old!" Virgie shouts. "I'm actually still young! ...maybe a bit mature, but I'm still fun!"

Then Saho begins to ramble to himself and she chuckles. Of course: Saho Mange is a lunatic. It's the only way to explain this kind of behavior.

And the way he described Lucy... "Okay, get out. I seriously cannot deal with this. You can call me old all you like, but NO ONE talks about Lucille that way, especially in her own home of all places."

It isn't like Saho wasn't used to getting kicked out of places; and so, he does what he usually does....ignores it.

"HA! SO YOU DO CARE! GET AWAY!! LUCKY FOR YOU I'M NOT DONE YET! SEE....SIGNAL WAS REPORTED AS DEAD! SHE'S DEAD ANYWAYS SO I KNOW IT SEEMS LIKE NECROPHILIA BUT SHE'S NOT DEAD!

SHE'S ALIVE!! I CAN PROVE IT!" He rambles, while still shirking away from the angry super-powered old lady. He's also mistaken as to why Virgilia is offended but..

"What. She's dead but not dead. What."

Virgilia sighed and rubbed her temples. This man was about to give her a headache and was thiiiis close to using her Jupiter buff again and knock him the fuck out.

But for now, she would keep humoring this man. Saho was different. She didn't quite know how, but he was.

"Alright. Prove it, then. How can my cousin be alive if she's already dead? Magic, perhaps? Necromancy is going out of style, yes, but unless you have another reason..."

"Saho envelopes himself with his cloak...then he throws out his arms dramatically and says....SHE'S A VAMPIRE! BLEH!" He's completely serious

"I don't actually have any proof, but I can feel it! I know she's a vampire, I KNOW it! It's like....I can't explain it, but it just FEELS like one of those things that are right! You're a wizard! You MUST believe me! It's more magic-y stuff!" Saho, excited now, feels better and begins to move in closer towards Virgilia...too close for her own comfort.

"So! Help me find Lulu! Show me your crystal ball or cauldron filled with green junk or whatever-hey speaking of, where are all your warts?" Saho...seemed more fascinated by why this woman was quick to turn to magic rather than the fact that she could kill him by blinking. How can you be this close to her? Aren't you scared?

"Nope. Cause she's not a girl, she's a WIZARD. ABRAKADABRA! Only way to explain why she's so old....but really, where are those warts and ugly nose? Did you magic them away? Wheres your black cat? I love cats. Here kitty kitty"

"A vampire? Well, I haven't heard of those in a while, admittedly. To be related to a vampire... guess it IS in the blood! And it would explain her being 'dead'."

She thinks about something for a bit, and decides that, eh, she's gonna live forever until someone decides to kill her, so...

"And I don't look like that stereotypical image of a witch because the first thing I did was gain an... ethereal sort of beauty. I am so beautiful that I scare people with how... unnatural it is. Like trying to look at an angel without any brain filters. Most people can't handle the sight for long without deeming me inhuman. Others..."

Virgilia leans in closer as well, this time whispering in Saho's ear and using her best proper lady voice, "You are the first man I've talked to in a looooong time that didn't run screaming. I like that in a man. Maybe..."

Oh no, she wasn't going to kill Saho "by blinking." That would be a waste of detective potential and of other things. Right now, Virgilia was testing the waters. How would the ripples look? she wondered.

"GET AWAY!" Saho, in an absolutely stunning display of acrobatics, hops atop her shoulder, doing a one-handed hand stand, and dismounting; doing an impressive backflip before landing atop a table a fair distance away...

Yeah, that was WAY more practical than just say....moving away.


"I-I-I...d-don't like you like Bassycakes! You don't...make...those FEELINGS. You're a wizard, not a girl, wizard not a girl, wizard not a girl..." Then it hit him. He repeated it in his head and outloud.

"...first man....first man....man" Saho's mother and Basset didn't call him that. They use patronizing nicknames like "dearie" or "sweetie" or just outright say "boy". It helps in controlling him and helps in demoralizing him. An unstable emotional wreck like Mange could have everything about him change in one instance or another with just the right word or phrase. Nothing held so much power over Saho than words.

"I'm...a man...." He tries to breath, to calm down. Was this all he needed? Reassurance? He reaches into his cloak and fumbles for his knife. He can still feel it. The coldness of the handle was proof: He'd won. He was alive and she wasn't. Basset never beat him either, she tied, but not 'beaten'. So why do both these people hold so much power against him? No matter what he was scared of them, regardless of how much he could tell himself that he shouldn't be....but maybe....if someone else told him...

"...n-no...stay away...tell me where Lulu is...a-and....you're not that beautiful? Don't touch me.....a man." Saho mumbles quietly to himself, still crouching down atop the table. He's contemplating, as he often does but for once....he isn't alone with his thoughts.
