One of the officers ran into Wren's room, looking frantic. "Where's the Detective?! He is needed immediately!"

He was clutching some sort of cloth very close to his chest.

Mere seconds before Kurgen began his descent down the niches, a rather frantic looking officer burst into the room, carrying what looked like a smallish table cloth stapled to his chest by his arms.

"Where's the Detective?! He is needed immediately!" he cried.

From over the ledge Kurgen called "I'm out the window!", and began dragging himself back into the room. The climb out of the window had been far easier than the climb back in, and by the time he was standing in the room again the panicked policeman was staring at him with a look that could only be asking why in the world he was climbing down a wall.

"Right. You needed me for something?" the detective inquired after a few moments of slightly awkward silence.

The officer blinked when the detective appeared from out the window. "Er... Oh! Right! We recovered something from the roof!"

He unfolded his arms and produced a glove. The kind of glove that went with an evening gown for a lady.

It was highly decorative, dark in color, ... and covered in dried frozen blood.

Attie checked the guest list over one last time. Everyone was present and accounted for. Now all that was left was to round up her fellow "investigators." She played back her memories of recent events, organizing the faces of those who had pitched in -- Desmond and Petya first, and for a while that was it. Then there was Lady Gutherund about halfway through the night. And towards the end, Jessie had hopped on the bandwagon as well.

She checked Officer Isaac's progress down the line. Good, he'd already been past Jessie. He was making his way towards the end, near herself and -- Attie caught sight of Gutherund's retreating back slipping into the kitchens. Oh for goodness' sake, didn't people know how to stay in one place for ten minutes?

She heaved a sigh and massaged her aching eyes. Couldn't exactly blame the Lady for getting a bite to eat, and come to think of it Attie couldn't recall seeing her eat anything at all over the course of the, er... party. But she didn't feel like getting an earfull from Isaac for letting someone out of their observation zone.

She drifted to the kitchen threshold, just close enough to keep the Lady in her line of sight without leaving the Officer's. Surely someone could be allowed to chop some veggies under supervision.

Well. This certainly changed things.

"Thank you, officer. Where was this found? Has anyone else been notified yet?" Kurgen questioned as he began crossing back across the room to collect Desmond and the Professor. To them he added "Does this look familiar to either of you?"

Desmond eyed the glove and wracked his brain. Trying ti go through anyone who could have had such a slim figure and matching attire, "I can't say for sure. I don't really recall who was wearing gloves... but its definitely female, thin... dark clothing. I'd check with whoever was at the door, they might remember. Where's Sventens?"

"I have." Petya suddenly exclaimed.

"I know it sounds positively insane, but I had...I had some sort of vision this morning. I saw the killer, their identity hidden, toss something bloody out the window and it flew up to the roof. That glove must have been it.

"I couldn't tell you who it belongs to. I couldn't see straight in that...that vision." He said dryly.

Kurgen's pace was quick to the point where anyone following was having to virtually run to keep tempo with him. Having a stride longer than most Dreamkeepers were tall helped with that.

As they stampeded down the steps, Kurgen belted out orders as though he were holding a checklist. He made a mental note to question Petya about his vision again, but for now he didn't acknowledge it. There would be time for that in a moment.

"Line all of the guests in one room. Have them turn out their pockets and take off anything that won't make them indecent. If they start asking for warrants, I'll have them." as if on queue, one of the smaller officers in tow started furiously mashing on a small data scroll, presumably sending a message requesting said warrants. "Anyone missing a glove that even remotely matches this one will be separated for further questioning. You two," he stopped briefly and pointed at Desmond and the Professor, who nearly collided with him in their frantic attempts to keep up, "find everyone who was a part of the investigation, bring them to Officer Issac to be searched first, then immediately report to me. We're getting to the bottom of this."

With that, he snapped back into step and hauled *** down the stairs, leaving the two men to carry out his orders. A timid looking cop stayed with them as an escort, though the exhausted expression on his face told that it was more out of a desire to get away from the machine of a detective, rather than necessity.

Sventens caught sight of the detective as he came down the stairs and into the foyer.

"Sir? Are you- Have you found something?" The butler asked with concern.

"Yes." was all he said before pushing past Sventens.

Stopping for a second, catching his error, he spun back around and added "we're searching guests. Has anyone reported anything missing lately?"

Kurgen's mind was in a half dozen places at once. The guests could be searched en masse, so it wouldn't take long, however there was still the matter of getting someone to fess up about missing a simple article of clothing. Problem with all these ritzy types is that they would lose something trivial like a glove or earring and not even notice or care until weeks later, at which point they could just purchase another.

Trying to get the already frazzled and impatient ones to cooperate was rapidly turning into a nightmare of its own.

Then there was the matter of assembling the investigation team, along with any other exceptionally high-profile guests.

Never mind the fact that they had broken so many protocols by letting civilians assist with and be given details on the investigations.

Finally, there was still the matter of Desmond Lightwood... Holy-crap-I'm-hanging-out-with-an-actor-I-wonder-if-I-should-ask-him-about-that-once-scene-in-no-probably-not-he'll-think-I'm-crazy-

Yeah.
