We"re act what we came below to do. No deal.

*
friend will obtain nothing from me. Go tell that bitch she have the right to pack up tiny club. Her name is coming off it. Get the hell the end of here. (Let"s go!) Go! maybe you misheard me: contact of the debt. NOW!
*
Here we go. The gunshot most likely alerted anyone on this floor.
*
There"s no boss fight, Boris is just another Russian mobster, and he drops like any kind of other one too.
*
Demi come in, weapons blazing, yet we take care of him.
*
And just as expected, anyone else is alerted. Us take treatment of them through the fire axe and Fortitude.
*
Back in Boris" office, we take his Glock 9 native the ground, and a $200 money-clip indigenous the counter.
*
Boris had the most advanced computer collection up the we"ve seen. Now there"s nothing left to perform here, so we"ll head ago to Venus.
*
But not prior to I allude out the there"s this unique looking cop in the lobby. Now we"ll head back.
*
*
Let"s talk in your office.
*
What? Ya, i can"t hear you, let"s speak in mine office.Yeah yes yeah.
*
Is "at Boris" blood? guess: v we"re partner then. If you only knew what I had actually to perform over the year to save this ar open. Tell friend what, partner, come in every couple of days and I"ll provide you her cut. Here"s tonight"s.
*
Alright, now that we"re in the club business, let"s make part changes. You know, i actually had some suggestions for the club.... Really, I"d love come hear them, but I"ve got to go uncover a brand-new DJ. Ours old one"s quiet spinning that pixie-wavematic eighties-redux electronica - it"s so last Friday. Heaps that thanks, again."Partners" huh. All it method is the we have the right to come back and get some money, occasionally. It"s a better deal than her former relationship through Boris, ns suppose.
*
With that finished, we"re walking to shot to prevent this plague. Our an initial stop is earlier at the Skyline apartments.
*
We"re here to watch Paul Anderson, that Damsel told us is a ghoul. We likewise learned native the computer in the basement, the he spends some time upstairs v Hannah Glazer. His apartment is ~ above the fifth floor, for this reason that"s whereby we"re heading.
*
The door to be unlocked, yet it looks choose he"s no home. Why would he leaving the door unlocked?
*
Oh.
*
Predictably, there"s a phone blog post to hear to:
*
Hi, Paul? It"s Hannah. Simply callin" to see just how you are. Ns hope ns didn"t offer you what I"ve got. Ugh, ns feel favor crap. Actually, I should ask girlfriend a favor. Can you pick me up some cold medicine at the store? I dislike to bother you, but... I can"t seem to acquire out that bed. The password on mine door is 1203. Hey, listen, I, uh... Had actually a really an excellent time the various other night. Possibly we might do it again sometime? Sorry... I"m rambling. Okay, bye.This need to be concerned the plague. Hannah must be sick v it. But does this mean that Paul captured it and also died indigenous it? Paul"s a ghoul, which is claimed to typical he can"t get sick. Yet Vic tells me the it"s basically a storyteller"s fiat. And then there"s the truth that we understand that vampires are leading to the plague, definition that the difference a ghoul that carries the plague could die due to the fact that it has actually life-processes that a vampire doesn"t.
*
i don"t know, what do you think?Anyway, we understand that our next stop is the sixth floor.
*
If you"re wondering, we have to take the elevator and use the entrance code. The vents space locked.
*
We acquire inside. Hannah have to still be upstairs, as she claimed she couldn"t get out that bed.
*
Yes, there she is.
*
I"m a friend of Paul"s. He simply wanted me to come and check increase on you.
*
I should say the here, we"re limited to lying due to the fact that our humankind score is too high come tell the truth. *cough cough* i don"t yes, really know. Ns - I"ve taken all kinds that medicine, however I can"t it seems to be ~ to get rid of it. Ns - ns feel choose I"ve gained a fever and also a sick throat. *cough cough* I"m genuine weak... Can"t it seems ~ to acquire out of bed. What job is it? i - ns can"t remember.Hannah is a potential lead. She might be able to tell us where she contract the plague, if that is what she"s ailing with. Sound pretty bad. Whereby did you acquire it? Well ns think... I obtained sick from among my... Clients. *cough cough* ns was feeling fine until I... I uh... I witnessed her a few days ago.Sure, sure, "Client". Who was this "client"? She was simply a woman who called. She, uh... She discovered my ad in the newspaper. *cough cough* Usually just do business with referrals, friend know, but she was offerin" a most money.But the doesn"t tell us who she is or where to uncover her. What deserve to you call me about this woman?
*
Speak that the devil. We discovered out the she"s remaining in the empire arms hotel last update:
*

to be there anything else strange about her? Anything at all? Yeah! i - ns mean, ns think so.... To tell friend the truth, i don"t yes, really remember a whole lot around that night, friend know. *cough sneeze cough* Everything"s a small blurry, girlfriend know. Ns mean... I"m no usually, girlfriend know, into women, but I remember feeling so attracted to her. I believed she was the many beautiful woman I"d ever before seen.
*
It sounds prefer she can be causing the plague. We"ve acquired our lead. Whereby did you accomplish her, Hannah? where is Jezebel Locke? She had actually a room in ~ the empire Hotel. Ns can"t mental the number. *cough* Hey, are you sure that Paul"s okay? He"s not sick, is he?Hannah is currently in sufficient pain, there"s no must tell her the Paul died. Paul"s just fine, Hannah. Don"t worry around him. Good. He - He"s a quite guy. I hope that calls me again sometime. I"m sure he will, Hannah.
*
Well that"s a tiny weird to say as she"s tho breathing...
*
...but as soon as the conversation ends she provides up the ghost. Poor Hannah. Required by circumstance to offer her body because that a living, she then recorded the plague, accidentally spreading it to she lover which killed him, and then she died. If we would have pressed her about what type of "client" she had, she would have actually revealed that she was ashamed of gift a prostitute. A sad finishing to a sad life.
*
Oh well, let"s steal the money from her safe. That"ll make united state feel better. In fact, let"s just leave and also never come earlier - we"ll quickly forget that Hannah ever existed.
*
But before we go, let"s review her diary that"s in she closet.
*

Well, currently we recognize that:Arthur is a creepVandal"s into BDSMThe Luckee Star Hotel is in HollywoodPaul was more than likely the only human being in her life she to be excited aboutJezebel was providing Hannah a many money for her servicesTo the empire Arms Hotel.
*
We understand that Jezebel Locke is staying in the Brooklyn Suite. What floor that"s ~ above is anyone"s guess. What"s more, we more than likely need the hotel key-card to get in. It might be feasable to simply knock top top the door, whichever door the is, and ask for her, since she"s probably delighted to spread out the plague, however let"s pat this safe. Which method talking to the receptionist.
*
Is over there a guest below named Jezebel Locke?
*
Yes. Miss out on Locke is just one of our more, umm, famous guests. Why do you ask? I need a key to her room.
*
Hmm, well let"s go v the choice that we"ve liked the least. If friend don"t give me a key, I"m going to rip the end your tongue.
*
We quiet don"t recognize where she is...
*
...but I have actually a feeling that it"s ~ above the only other floor we deserve to go to and also haven"t.
*
This should be it.
*
Nice place. Maybe--
*
ns take that you"re Jezebel Locke?
*
Look in ~ her teeth - she"s a vampire. Us don"t recognize for sure if she"s spreading the plague, therefore we"ll play along, making use of what Hannah told us, and shot to get Jezebel to present her hand. If video games have taught me anything, it"s that bad guys never ever keep your mouths shut about their angry plans. You space strangely attractive....I had a high institution english teacher who had actually that same hairstyle. It would look good on a lego person. Oh, come on, now... Don"t deny yourself the pleasure of Jezebel"s talents. Simply a couple of more steps and we have the right to be enveloped by the sweet darkness, come to be slaves to the desires of our wasted flesh. Ns would, yet I forgot mine penicillin.That"s the heat we"re compelled to say.
*
Oh, fine not only are us correct in thinking she tote the plague, she"s now revealing to united state something called the 9th Circle. Perhaps she"s coordinating with other vampires to spread this plague, all part of this "Ninth Circle". So i can end up dead prefer Hannah and her friends? Who better than prostitutes to bring the dark gift i bring? Ah, will they not share it with the rest of those that revel in the pleasures that the flesh? You"re sick, pure and simple. Time to placed you the end of your misery.We"re compelled into fighting Jezebel, which method it"s time for a ceo fight.Watch ceo Fight:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abG5A-9FbFM
*
Jezebel starts out by activating presence. Whatever, it doesn"t carry out anything to us.
*
Her hits cut like a knife, which ns guess is appropriate. Still, just hit her until she go down.
*
I mental this fight being a many harder, yet here it was pretty easy. V Jezebel dead, we gain a masquerade redemption...
*
...along through a allude of experience. There"s this book on the table, yet we require a higher brawl ability to read it. Now, it turns out that there"s nothing else to view in Jezebel"s apartment. No much more hints around this "Ninth Circle", i beg your pardon leaves united state with only one various other avenue: go talk to the homeless people, favor Damsel said.But first, we"re going come go ago to the last Round. We can tell Skelter we resolved the difficulty of Patty, and we can additionally give Damsel an update on the torment situation, including informing her about Paul"s death.Off we go.
*
*
i took treatment of the Patty problem. Great work. Man, ghouls ain"t nothin" but trouble if girlfriend ask me. It"s a weak pure and simple.And that"s that. We"re not finished through Skelter, though. I"ve gained a couple of questions. What"s up v this Damsel chick? You median college girl over there? Hmph. Come be ethical she reminds me of those miserable stateside protester fucks from when I was in "Nam. But she"s ~ above the appropriate side in this war. Don"t allow the hippy vibe stupid ya.As if being against the Vietnam war is anything but the right place to take. I"m no going to pursue this tangent any kind of further, yet you deserve to if you wish. Ns have one more question. Call me about Gehenna, again.I think I might have coincidentally left this out of our critical conversation through Skelter.

carry out you think it"s other the Camarilla make up? Nah, the Camarilla denies any of that shit exists - vampire forefathers, doomsday prophecies - all simply superstition in Cammyland. Then who believes it? several people. The Sabbat think in it. Castle go about tryin" come hunt under these sleeping ancients so"s they can kill them before they increase up. That"s the word anyway. Of course, most Sabbat package I"ve watched couldn"t uncover their car keys. What execute you believe?
*
and I believed I was paranoid. Later.Now to speak to Damsel.
*
about Paul... He"s dead... For a few days. That wasn"t pretty. Us told him to burn the blood and also go to the hospital. Said he assumed he"d gain over it. Men are stubborn that way. Simply proves the plaguebearer"s gotta be found. The plaguebearer"s dead. Ideal on, "cept us dusted a second one over near the convention center. They"re part of some doomsday cult, apparently. No informing how plenty of there are, however it"s open season on every these ailing sons that bitches!This simply confirms what we currently knew. I"ll start searching for the rest. Bye, Damsel.Yes we will, next time.
