On the night of the full moon, the members of the Caern of the Mother's Open Hands gather in the Hanalei Refuge.

There is a new face in the crowd - a slender young woman with coarse dark hair and sharp features standing close to Njall.

Mends-the-Rifts addresses the group. "Melissa Sun-Chaser here," she indicates the young woman standing near Njall, "has brought grave news." She extends the Talking Stick to Melissa. "Will you tell them?"

When he gets the opportunity, Andreu takes the Talking Stick.

(As he speaks, his voice fills with disgust)

"Brothers and sisters, teachers and students, when you are out walking around the bawn of our home, I urge you to look for unusual spots of recently disturbed earth. Many days ago, I spied a spot where some... thing had dug into the ground. Upon removing the soil, I discovered a human-like but deformed creature. It attacked me with razor sharp teeth and claws, but burned in the sun's cleansing light. Once dragged out of the hole, it burst to flame and burned to ash."

He pauses to regain his composure, "I would assume it was a vampire, though why it would bury itself in the ground on our doorstep I do not know. I have been vigilant, seeking out evidence of more of them tainting the earth around us, but have seen none. While some might assume that there are no more, I would not be so foolish. Keep a watchful eye when you decide to protect our home. Should you discover one, I will be eager to remove such an abomination with you."

Done for now, he looks for reactions and indications of who wishes the stick next.

Matt holds out his hand for the stick.

Once he has it Matt says, "I was on my way to my cove do a patrol swim and I got to see most of what he just described."

Matt offers the talking skit to whoever wants it next.

Diana takes the Talking Stick from Matt and takes a deep breath. "Members of the Mother's Open Hands - I have more bad news." She pauses to look at Reads-Street-Sign, Itchy Kachina, and Charlie, then at the elders. "You might recall that at the last moot, Reads-yuf gathered a group to deal with the Wyrm drugs some humans were selling in Hanalei." Pause. "We did not find the drugs, but we did find something worse - one of the buyers led us to a store in Hanalei, where we found a Black Spiral Dancer masquerading as a shop girl."

Andreu gives a wary look, though he does not ask for the stick.

** A vampire right in the caern, and a - black spiral what? I am assuming it is something bad, anyway... At this rate, the traditionalists are going to have reason to believe we cannot defend this place! But I should find out more... **

Lakshmi reaches for the talking stick, then asks "For the benefit of those of us who are not Garou, what is a 'Black Spiral Dancer'? I am assuming from your words that it is some sort of servant of the Unmaker, but can you tell us more?"

Diana blinks; it's quite evident by her expression that she's never heard of someone not knowing what a Black Spiral is. **Well, the Elders at Gaia's Hand did say the other Fera were different....**

"A Black Spiral Dancer is a member of a Wyrm-corrupted tribe of Garou," she replies, trying to keep from grimacing at the thought of her people's hated enemy. "Once, they were Garou like us, and called themselves the White Howlers, but then they fell to the Wyrm, and became the Black Spiral Dancers." She pauses. "I could tell you many stories about the horrors they've perpetrated over the centuries...but now isn't the time."

"Ah, I see. No, I do not think we need to hear all the stories, though perhaps another time... For now, it is enough to know what manner of creature we must be on guard against, so that those of us who have not encountered them before will know them when we see them."
