WEDDING BELLS & WAR PAINT [MEETING]

Cat was always armed. Always. These days, though, who wasn't? Especially here. It'd be stranger to see someone walking around without any weapons, and even then most would probably assume that the arms were just concealed. Normally, the bulk of their weapons were tucked away, the only plainly visible one being the handgun holstered at their hip. They hated that gun with a burning passion, but after the attempts on their life and the lives of those around them with similar guns, they couldn't justify not carrying just because of their disdain. No one was going to die on their watch just because guns are the worst.

Today things were a little bit different, though. Today the snap keeping their gun in place is undone, their fingers are threaded through brass knuckles and in that hand, most obviously, they hold a knife. They were dragging a whetstone across it to sharpen it, one leg dangling over the edge of the billiard table where they were sitting and the other pulled up on the table. Casual, but still setting the mood for what was to come.

Of course, since Cat was going to be a dramatic edgy shit for this and didn't want to ruin it by directly calling the meeting themself, they sent out people to round everyone up. They'd speak once they had a good audience gathered around. Until then they were gonna keep working on their knives.

GENERAL   welcome to the end of eras, ice has melted back to life
⇥ Given name is Scott Mathew Darrow ⇥ Goes only by Catalyst or Cat
⇥ Assigned male at birth ⇥ Agender ⇥ They/Them pronouns only
Twenty-one ⇥ Born 11/27/17 ⇥ Sagittarius ⇥ Real time aging
Boss (leader) of the Badlands ⇥ Ex prisoner of the Badlands
⇥ Ex cultist (Mourningstar) ⇥ Ex member of the Young Rogues

RECENT EVENTS   done my time and served my sentence
⇥ 06/29/39 ⇥ Reunited with Louie
⇥ 06/26/39 ⇥ Had a talk with their father
⇥ 06/22/39 ⇥ Gave Creed the Brand

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.

— there was word going around that a meeting was starting up. and when addy had stepped on into the casino, he hadn’t quite known what to expect. usually cat was the one calling the shots around here- not having others go around and call it out for him. and- what the fuck was catalyst even doing? he couldn’t fight the slight sneer as he walked in to see the leader holding a knife oh-so casually.
 
“the hell you up to?” as good a question as any to ask.

      Another meeting, another reason for Lucerne to actually leave the safety of his room for once. Trudging down to the casino, enveloped in a silken robe, he found himself unwilling to participate in any conversation, meaningful or not. Instead, taking one short, impassive glance towards Addy and Cat, Lucerne then found himself settling down in an armchair, crossing a leg over his knee whilst he waited for the meeting to begin.

AND CHANCES ARE, THEY WON'T GO FAR | | |
Salem had been herded to the casino, the grapevine of conversation alight with murmurs of a meeting going on. So he'd hurried his ass over, not wanting to miss the theatrics; if this meeting was anything like last time's parade, it was bound to be entertaining at least.

And then it was just Cat, sitting sharpening a knife. Boring as all hell; even Addy was questioning Cat on what they were doing. Salem didn't suppress a sigh and wandered towards a chair, deciding to let it play out and not get involved.

People filed in, and unsurprisingly, Addy spoke up. Their gaze slid over to him, one eyebrow lifting by a hair. "Fug's it look like? I'm getting ready for a fight." They tossed the whetstone aside, dropping their other leg down to dangle next to the other as they straightened up and faced their audience.

"I'm done waiting around for Brian to retaliate. It's time that we end this. So that's what we're going to do. We're going to go over there, and we're going to make them understand why exactly fugging with us was a bad idea. Just in case our last mission there didn't do it for them." They shrugged. "Who knows, maybe it did and that's why we haven't seen any Insurrectionist fingers poking around. In any case, the war is ending today."

Cat tossed the knife from their left hand to their right. "But that's not all we're doing this week. We're gonna clean the blood off and head on up to Flintlock for a wedding. Blake and Eddie, I think? So get all your bad behavior out while we're in the Insurrection and play nice while we're in Flintlock. Sound good?" They didn't particularly care if it sounded good or not, that's what they were doing.

They flipped the knife in the air and caught it again - a trick that they'd nicked themself more times than they cared to admit while mastering - and dropped down from the billiard table. "One last thing before we head out, Lucerne, this is the first time I've seen you since the last meeting. I know things are slow right now but I need more than that right now, so until you pick things up again you're demoted to a regular member. Please trade in your bandanna." They sheathed the knife and pulled a red bandanna out of their pocket; since the swap was the only thing happening, they hadn't bothered bringing the whole box.

OOC Summary:
— The Badlands is raiding the Insurrection and after this the war will be considered officially over. Click
— We were also invited to Blake and Eddie's wedding in Flintlock. Ceremony Reception
— Lucerne is demoted for inactivity
