THE TRIAL INVESTIGATION.

[On Friday morning, for any of the early birds, they may find a note lying outside their door:

I think someone’s after me, if someone breaks into my room I’ll run to the lake! Please help look after me! ~ The cutest in the world, Cagliostro


There’s a smiley face at the end, along with tiny hearts. (You can choose to have your character to run into it if you wish-- some were purposefully delivered, and some were blown by the wind. The general idea is they can run into one easily, around the Pagoda.)

However, if you look at Floor 17...

Well. For now, everything seems peaceful. What do you want to do today?

Investigate?]

[Huh...did that dog just gesture to answer her question? Well, that's convenient. She holds out the branch.] Hey, can you smell anyone on this? Find that person, boy!

[Just what does she think he is, a tracking dog? ... Well, the "dog" part is correct.

So for a moment, he... seems to have given her a look. But he brings his nose to the branch for a good sniff. Alright, what kind of scent can he pick up... and if he can smell any lingering scent that matches it.

[He follows the scent... right to Cagliostro's body. There's another scent, but it's hard for him to make out.

He looks over at Nira, and then at Cagliostro. Hm...
]

Her scent. There's another person's on it, but hard to make out.

[The dog can talk!?]
ladyporthos: (confusion)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-21 11:01 pm (UTC)(link)
...so she was carrying it... [Why would she be doing that? And then she does a double-take.] You can talk?
sundiet: (Devourer)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-22 01:55 am (UTC)(link)
I guess she used it as a weapon. [And bonk the target with it? He seems to have roll his eyes.] Yeah, I can. I didn't earlier because I don't know what kind of person you are.

[He looks back at Cagliostro.] Guess while I'm here, might as well help out. Got anything I can check out for you?
ladyporthos: (intense stare)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-22 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
So she probably hit someone with it. Probably not very hard, but maybe she could have left a bruise. [She looks at Cagliostro's hands. Any bark or scratches that might come from holding a branch on them?]

[She blinks.] So you think I'm an okay person, then? And can you smell any other scent on here? It looks like someone punched her on the forehead...

Well, you're not running away or pulling out arrows at me. [How oddly specific.] If you do anything sneaky, I'd bite you.

[Maybe. He nods and start sniffing around the area.]
sundiet: (Sun is my temptation)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-22 02:46 am (UTC)(link)
[Wet and dry. Give him a moment...]

Think we can find more stuff if we move her body?

[Maybe her butt is hiding more clues underneath it.]
ladyporthos: (intense stare)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-22 03:13 am (UTC)(link)
[Nira tries to lift the body, but probably ends up dragging it. Her eyebrows go up.] Huh! Looks like she fell or got dumped in the lake at some point...or someone dumped water on the bridge. [While she's at it, she'll try to flip her over completely to see if there are any more marks on her back.]
sundiet: (Sun is my temptation)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-22 03:18 am (UTC)(link)
[He helps her drag the body over, biting on Cagliostro with his teeth. (Ewwwww).
After letting go, he notice what's hidden down there. Huh, wet areas.
]

Probably. Is it possible to get water from the lake without disturbing anyone down there?

[He erred to the side of caution earlier in the week.]

Maybe someone pushed her, while she's fighting them off? [Time to search and sniff for more clues.]
sundiet: (Sun is my temptation)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-22 03:39 am (UTC)(link)
[...]

Can you search her?

[Look, he might be a dog, but he's a Polite Enough Dog.]
ladyporthos: (intense stare)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-22 03:48 am (UTC)(link)
If you had a bucket, maybe. Or maybe you could drop something really big in and make the water splash out...we would probably have heard something like that, though.

[She nods.] Alright...can you help me carry her somewhere more private? [Stripping someone on a bridge feels kind of exposed and rude.]
sundiet: (Simple times)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-22 04:01 am (UTC)(link)
[He nods.]

Alright. Don't freak out too much, by the way...

[And in a moment, there's a young man in his place.]

... Yo?
ladyporthos: (intense stare)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-22 04:58 am (UTC)(link)
[Her eyebrows shoot up even more.] Oh! I guess that's why I didn't see you around before. [She bends to pick up Cagliostro under her shoulders.] Can you get her legs?
sundiet: (Is that really justice)

[personal profile] sundiet 2017-04-22 05:05 am (UTC)(link)
That's why. I want to keep hiding that... but it's easier if I'm like this to help carry her.

[He nods, and bends down to grab Cagliostro's legs.]

Got them. I'm ready to go.
ladyporthos: (intense stare)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-22 05:59 am (UTC)(link)
Alright, heave! [Assuming nothing else interferes, she'll make her way to the closest awning, where she'll lay Cagliostro out on the ground.] Can you turn around while I examine her?
creepylaugh: (If I turn around I'll find)

[personal profile] creepylaugh 2017-04-22 06:16 am (UTC)(link)
[ WALKS IN AN HOUR LATE WITH NO STARBUCKS there's now another girl to check this out, any other time someone may have raised a fuss since Iria's just a teenager, but she's seen her fair share of death running away from people after her powers. Someone caved, and so quickly. Iria was angry but... she wondered if she could really blame them in their desperate situation. ]

... Let me help out.

[ She'll ask about what she's missed so far here, so we can fast forward what they know as of now and where else to look. ]

Even after all that head trauma wouldn't that have been enough? Ugh, hope there isn't more.

[ Hope only gets so far. ]
ladyporthos: (confusion)

[personal profile] ladyporthos 2017-04-22 06:47 am (UTC)(link)
...wait...her ribs...was someone trying to do CPR on her? That can leave a lot of marks on skin if you're doing it right...
