"We will talk later." Wraith promised Enoch. He ports over to Gunther. "Teleport fist bump!" Wraith said as he fist bumped the big guy. "Wouldn't be a very good champion if I stayed out of trouble. Heading to Russia after I am done here. You?"

"Fathom's enjoying her room, personally designed by Poseidon and is currently in the middle of what I assume is a gourmet bubble bath. Which means that polite conversation with you two is lower down on the priority list." Kodama informs Epirus, waving hello to both the latecomers.

"You think we're here to say hi, but we really just want to take a look at the rooms your own Arbiters made for you, we just finished checking out everyone else's digs. Some people here got some interesting stuff." She tilts her head towards Orrin.

"E!" Orrin says greeting Epirus. "I haven't seen you since you ditched me and Sammy in Mexico."he said. "He wasn't very happy about that by the way." Orrin informed the champion. "Petran has Catherine well in hand. He was helping her when I left to come here. I'd say she's where she needs to be for now."

Orrin catches Wraiths comment. If Orrin's hunch had been right and the Company was the same as the one that Wraith had a vendetta against whatever was happening in Russia could be connected to the Hunter. "Wraith? What's in Russia? You tracking someone?"he asked. "I want to compare notes later." he turned back to the others.

"What have you all been up to? Gunther I haven't seen you since you were fleeing that Dragon. I must say I like these circumstances better."

"Nope. Tracking down a book for Lady Athena." Wraith said to Rocky. "Not connected to the Tradesmen. "

Golem suddenly stopped in his tracks pushing his way between anyone and Wraith, "Wait. What book. WHAT BOOK WRAITH?"he said with more fervor. Apparently the kid had hit a nerve.

"If its the book I think it is...." Orrin explained. "By merely letting Mephisto look at it I can.... well I can bring Medusa from hell."he explained. "I made a deal with the Devil you could say."he explained. "You let me make a pit stop on the way back and I'll tear down an army to get to that book for you."

Enoch, Orrin, Wraith, and Kodama
Epirus steps closer, not between you, but within arms reach. "Medusa? Hell? Mephisto? Somebody want to get me up to speed on what we've been up to the last few days?"

Orrin turned around and looked at Epirus. "Well E. I was trying to take you along but you had to go all Houdini on me."he said somewhat frustrated. "Last time I saw you I wasn't even a champion yet.. hell I don't even thing I faced the Hunter. Things have changed... alot." Orrin explained with a sigh.

"Lets see where to start... there is an immortal Hunter who has killed every golem except for me and my grandfather. He tried to take me on and I ripped him to pieces. Petran liked my style and gave me the gig. Then I met up with Enoch there and we went on a mission to help one of Wraiths buddies. That's when the Hunter really pissed me of by crashing a plane on my head."he explained. Turning back toward Enoch he said "I still say I totally caught it..."he joked before going back to Epirus. "I noticed by the portal he jumped through when he came back to shoot us to bits that he was working with Death." Orrin explained.

"So one thing leads to another and Enoch and I went to see Death. While I am talking to him Wraith here burst in and rubbed him the wrong way. Needless to say he got snippy, I lost my temper and next thing I know Enoch's following me to Hell to get a weapon to kill the Hunter." Orrin pulls the weapon out of his suit jacket. "All I had to do is put my Ma's soul on the line, like an idiot."he explained. "Mephisto had me totally turned around. Of course it didn't help that he was forcing the progenitor of my race to be a casino girl."he explained. "So I made a second deal, which was a bit more flexible. If I let one of Mephisto's flunkies look at the book then he will bring Medusa back in full form, totally intact with no strings attached." Orrin explains.

"Of course after that Loki got me this nice suit and we found out that Tank girl and her flunkies were working with the Hunter along with some Company that is apparently hunting all the Metahumans with their own."he then turns to Wraith. "Sound familiar kid?"

"After we brought the girl to Death to fulfill Enoch's word I went to Petran to train with every golem that the Hunter has ever killed so I could come back and make some sweet chin music."he explained. "Nature girl might be here for the Arbiters version of Cribs, but I'm here to get some backup and lay the smack down on that punk. The only thing that would distract me from that purpose is the very book Wraith suddenly is chasing down. Last I checked Archon had already rounded it up for Athena."he explained. "Considering she is the reason Medusa is in Hell in the first place I didn't consider getting the book feasible before... now it is."

"I am pretty sure Lady Athena would have mentioned it if the devil wanted it. You should check with her."
And even if it is the same book, there is no way I am letting the devil sneak a peak.
"Orrin." Wraith said gently, using his real name for the first time. "I know this is important to you, but that sounds like one of the things that lead to the end of the world. "

Wraith, Enoch, Orrin, and Kodama
Epirus processes all this, skipping over the demon deal. "Okay... Wraith. You said Athena had you looking for that book, but Orrin just said Athena already had it." He considers this for a moment. "So either they're different books or Athena's playing one of you. Do either of you know what's in the book each of you is looking for? End of the world or not, caution's a good idea here."

Orrin taps his skull for a minute to have a good think. "It was some book of pictures..."he says thinking aloud. "Wait not pictures glyphs... or was it Sigils. Yeah definitely sigils...."he said thinking when suddenly it struck him. "Tome of Sigils! That was it." Orrin explained. "Know anything about it? I figure he's got to have some evil purpose... I mean he is the Devil, but still what harm is a peek?"he explained.

Answering Wraith he explained himself a bit more. "I would ask Athena if I could. She is quite literally in the know, but this is most definitely the last thing she wants. Medusa was her High Priestess before she betrayed her. There is no way she is letting me free her let alone helping me. I'll listen to reason, just not from her on this one."

"The book I am after is an Arabic book of magic, so I doubt it is the same. Orrin I don't know why the devil wants the book my friend, but do you really want to disrupt the balance between Heaven and Hell? For all you know it could lead to demonic legions occupying the Earth. I know your family is important to you, but there are a lot of families on Earth."

"Considering I'm trying to rescue a soul a jealous god put there...." Orrin said. "Well Yes that is exactly what I am trying to do."he explained. "Try to think of it this way. My grandfather and I are the last of our race... the very last two. Our first born male is the only one who can procreate so my Grandfather is done. Its just me and maybe my son if I had one. The Golems are pretty much toast thanks to the Hunter."he explained.

"But Medusa... she could change all that. She could create Golems again."he said with excitement. "I'm sure they would aid us in whatever Big Bad is out there and it would be saving an entire race from extinction. Can you tell me if you were the last man on earth you wouldn't do the same thing?"he asked.

Kodama catches her balance after being brushed aside in a hurry by the suddenly energetic Orrin. Deal with the devil? Mephisto? She thought meeting some vampires was bad. Turning down an offer from the company? Good grief. She would love it, love it if life could be as simple as dealing with some mercenaries, greedy corporations and natural disasters. But no, becoming a Champion meant bringing mythology to life and have it scheme against you. Madness.

'Nature girl might be here for the Arbiters version of cribs'... that's uhh... that's nice. She puts her head in her hands to rub her temples for a moment to hide a frown.

"Sounds like you'll need to do a little bit more research to find the Book of Sigils then." Kodama says with more edge than she means to. "Just remember, you've got forever to find it and your race will never die so long as you're Champion. Not all species are that lucky."
