DIVINE VIOLENCE // INVITATION + GIFT BASKET
« on: June 27, 2019, 01:51:04 PM »
Wolfsbane wasn’t sure of the relationships the major groups had with one another. He knew basics- who was enemies with who- but he didn’t know of their histories or current standings. Nevertheless, Bane had chosen to invite all major groups he had heard of to Los Santos’ introduction event. Hopefully these groups would maintain peace, and the only drama would be in the spirit of competition. Still, the man knew he could not control the tides, and so he worried about this possibility.

The man stood upon the border of the Badlands, wooden bat full of nails swaying slightly from his belt. He eyed the territory, wary of any overly aggressive members, a small basket in his hand full of supplies such as painkillers, bandages, fresh fruits, canned foods, and a bottle of whiskey. ”I’m here to deliver an invitation,” The man announced, having learned it was always smart to state his peaceful intentions when he had a bat full of nails attached to his belt.

The politics of the region were complicated, sometimes dictated by little more than whether or not the leaders could get along. Cat had a rapport with Hayley, they liked her, so by extension they liked Flintlock. Well, not the place itself - way too goddamn cold for their liking, and that wasn't even mentioning the hiking. But Silas? He could fuck right off, they could say with certainty the only two reasons that they tolerated him was they didn't feel like getting into two wars at once, and because Molly wanted to be friendly. That was it. Now take Northstar; they could take or leave Greenie, but it was legitimately beneficial to be on good terms with them.

Now there was someone unfamiliar at the border, saying he had an invitation. Now, they didn't expect to know every member of every group, but they felt like they had a fairly good grasp, at least as of a little while ago. "And you are?" Cat wasn't a friendly person, not really, certainly not to strangers whose names they didn't even know. Maybe it was bad policy, but they didn't care.

APPEARANCE   dress me up and watch me die
⇥ Catalyst is 6'2" tall; they possess a lean and muscular body, one that has a variety of old scars adorning it. One of the easiest to notice is one that stretches down their right cheek. While not a scar, one very notable marking on their chest is the "BL" brand. They have two piercings, one in their tongue and the other in the cartilage of their left ear. They typically dress in dark colors (favoring jackets with some sort of writing on the back), and their hair is black. They're not all dark, however, as they have pale blue eyes that peer out from beneath medium-sized eyebrows.

PERSONALITY   if it feels good, tastes good, it must be mine
⇥ Catalyst is ambitious, with the cunning and ruthlessness to reach their goals by any means necessary. They can be brutal when they feel it is needed, however when it's not they won't bother. They tend to be rather aloof and apathetic to most things and people, with some very rare exceptions. Provided those around them don't cross a few specific lines, they're content to leave them be, though they've been known to take an interest in some people, which seldom has a positive end for whoever their interest is in. They can be manipulative, and will often encourage people to make bad decisions. Those that stick by them will be rewarded, but those that do not will be cast out, as they've been outcast for their entire life and have learned to appreciate loyalty wherever they can find it. Even during the most stressful of situations, they usually keep a firm grip on their temper and keep their calm, though when they do snap and lose their temper, it is uncontrollable. They're remarkably observant, often able to deign much from subtle clues in what people say, how they say it and how they act.

— they’d been invited to a couple things over the last couple months addy had been at the badlands. generally, it involved things that he didn’t particularly care for - weddings, parties, overall socializing with people - but he still couldn’t stay away from the stranger hanging out around the border of the badlands territory. cat had already beat him there - figures - but the redhead still sauntered over nonetheless.
 
his eyes wandered over the gift basket in hand, barely able to really make out what everything was in the basket- but he knew a bottle of whiskey when he saw one. he definitely had dibs on that for later. glancing between cat and the newcomer, he figured that cat had asked the question that really needed to be answered, though he couldn’t help but add a short, “where y’from?” pretty basic shit, he supposed.

      Lucerne never quite involved himself with the politics of the Badlands. Despite his aloof loyalty towards the group, he tended to keep very much to himself. His role as the group's doctor and officer meant that he tended to keep within the domestics of the group itself rather than meddle with external matters. After all, it was clear that he wasn't the greatest at communication. In fact, his words were often so unintentionally demeaning that he could make enemies by giving them a compliment.

He'd leave the talking to more capable people - Cat and Addy were harsh but they surely knew how to be more tactful in speech than Lucerne could ever be. He instead approached after coming across the two Badlanders greeting a stranger. Lucerne slowed to a halt nearby, hands clasped comfortably behind his back, as he observed wordlessly. He'd come and go like a phantom, invisible to the world. Cold eyes searched the stranger. He was not a face who Lucerne had seen before, and with a basket of goods he couldn't have been just a loner looking for a place to stay - a new group must've been in the picture. Brows knitted together. The man was alone with no other protection apart from a bat; he hoped for neutrality or, better yet, an allegiance. Otherwise, he'd not be here, stood alone, announcing an invitation.

Lucerne scoffed under his breath. Cat would be happy to hear - they surely didn't need another enemy to play with fire with.

Bane, on the opposite hand, was still trying to figure out potential allies, and potential foes. He had a fairly basic idea of the politics here, but be they ever-changing, he wasn’t willing to bet money on his knowledge. Nevertheless, he would learn them all in time, and this was the first step in doing so.

He directed his attention to the man who spoke first, an air of authority to him that Bane would note. ”My name’s Bane, and I lead a newer group called Los Santos,” Grey eyes flickered towards the other who had asked where he was from. He looked to the other man who approached as well, acknowledging his presence with a subtle nod.

”We’re hosting an event and have invited all the major groups I know of. There’s a collective agreement to maintain peace on Los Santos’ land despite politics.” Bane prayed such an agreement would be maintained, but he knew he couldn’t control the tides. Still, the Los Santos members had just spent the last few days tidying up the city and preparing for this event- if any blood would be shed on their city, Bane would not take kindly. ”We’re hosting a competitive field day with different kinds of events and free food and drinks. Everyone is welcome to attend.” Bane offered a friendly expression- not quite a smile, but a kindly aura.

Two other Badlanders filed over, Addy throwing in his own question (which Cat would think would be implied in their own), while Lucerne stayed silent. That sounded right, characteristic to the men that had joined them. Then the stranger spoke, introducing himself as Bane, the leader of Los Santos. Alright then, sure.

The invitation was to a competitive field day... well that sounded like a lot of work for Cat's liking, but maybe some of the more active, competitive types would enjoy it. Them? Well, who would say no to free food and drinks? "As long as the Insurrection isn't there. If they are, I guarantee it won't stay peaceful." Even if Cat could bring themself to play nice, there was no doubt in their mind that Brian would miss a chance to do what he'd failed time and time again to do: kill them.
