Jeeko’s Journal – Entry 12
3rd Waterday of Reaping
Vincent is dead. Jeeko was right; creature that could steal faces was there, killed him. Not sorry to see Vincent gone…angry, though. Charged with defending him and failed. Could have been useful in the future. Marcus, the fool, went and got the guards. Now we run on Vincent’s flying ship. Group nearly tore itself apart; may need to help it stay together. Can think of several ways, but nobody will like it.
Wizard was at the party. His name is Nilus and he is still burned. Was so close to attacking him then and there, but couldn’t, not there, not yet. Humiliated him. Knows it was me, don’t care. Doesn’t seem to recognize me otherwise.
One who threw the knife at Vincent is “Mia”, supposedly chasing the facethief. Don’t trust her, but could be useful. Worried about the blame so quickly landing on us, though. We took Vincent’s work to find the pyramid thieves…then days after our hired help told us where the traitor captain was, our employer is killed, cutting off from those resources? Cannot think it is chance. Somebody wants our hunt stopped, but I am not easily deterred from prey.
