She was meeting with a very interesting contact today. One she'd spent a lot of time procuring... And one that had a name that brought Sera a lot of interest. Qrow Branwen, a name that she'd heard from Adam, and one that she wasn't above investigating to the fullest extent. Rumour had it the man worked for Ozpin, or at least was closely acquainted with him, which was why Sera had taken a vested personal interest in this man. She lurked in the shadows, using her Semblance to remain invisible, as she first observed the man, her presence undetected; after all, she couldn't be seen in this area, so long as she remained still. She observed him; he was a drinker, given how many drinks he'd gone through in the night so far. But she had information he wanted, and she was going to get some of her own... After all, dealing in information was what she did, and information came at a price.

She slowly moved up the stairs, ducking into the shadows before she became completely visible, though she remained hidden to anyone in the room. With a flourish, she stepped down the stairs, signalling the bartender as she did. A waitress was quick to pick up two drinks, bringing them to the table where Qrow sat as Sera approached, fluffing the wings of her feathers as she stretched them and sat down. They felt confined in such a space, and that did not sit well with Sera. She hated confined spaces, after all.

"Qrow Branwen," she greeted, her violet hues meeting his as she picked up her own glass, swirling the ice cubes as a coy smile crossed her lips. "Or so I hope. I wouldn't want the goods to go to the wrong party, after all." She took a sip of her drink, watching him carefully. She knew it was him; she'd done her research, after all.

Mistral. If there was any one thing Qrow could say about Mistral was that there were plenty of places for people to hide. Qrow knew this all too well from past experiences. Of course, Mistral was also a great place to gain information one might need for missions or future missions… or just gain information in general.

His visit in Mistral was not a pleasant one; not after his meeting with Raven. Of course, traveling to Mistral wasn’t one thing that had been on his to-do list until then either. No, he was there not only for Raven but himself. Raven had tracked down their mother, the woman that had abandoned them. Qrow had many things to discuss with that woman now… and he intended on doing so before she died for whatever reason she was dying. However, there were many unanswered questions about the ordeal. He needed information.

And that was why Qrow was there on the second floor of a bar…. Well, one of the reasons at least. Even after drinking two bottles of whiskey by himself, Qrow felt too sober. Of course, he had to stay sober enough to actually comprehend the information he was going to get. It was a fine balance he had to play… of course, he also had a lot on his mind, the woman who birthed him being only one of many things. Besides drowning what little bit of liver he had left, he was waiting for an informant. It was a new informant that day, someone he didn’t know.

And perfect timing. Two new drinks, and Qrow looked up after he heard his name. His companion, it seemed, for the night. “It depends on who is asking,” Qrow responded, picking up the new glass and taking a swig of it, “Sometimes I go by bastard, but you don’t seem to be that type, Redbird. Of course if I’m jumping to conclusions, feel free to correct me.”

Qrow Branwen, in the first few words he spoke, became more and more intriguing. She wasn't just here to learn about the information she wanted; she was here to learn and observe. She'd needed some information to get what she needed, so what little she'd learned about Qrow had been dug up. Old records in a town called Higurashi. They were definitely old, but that was to be expected in an abandoned town. But Qrow surely knew what price she was asking for what she had found. She didn't deal in lien; she dealt in information. Or, at least, she tried to as much as she could.

"No, you're not wrong. I am certainly not that type," she said, the corner of her lips still turned up in a smirk. "So. Before we get too down to business, you know what price I've asked for this. I found quite a bit, and some very interesting details nonetheless. But I deal in information... and lien does not support a business based entirely on it." She would get hers first, that was certain.

"But I trust you are aware of this. Surely you know what it means to cross the wrong person out here. So first, we'll start with the basics." The information she'd requested had two purposes. She wanted to know what Sienna Khan was up to... and she wanted to gauge just how much their enemy knew about them. Information that she could save for a rainy day... and someone she could look to if Sienna became less than savoury. She could trust Adamfor now, and Celadon seemed trustworthy, but with recent events and stirrings, Sera was not too confident in Sienna.

"Camille Branwen is not quite the woman you may have thought she was." There was some build up before she was going to give everything away. "Born and raised in Mistral. Right here in Kuchinashi, actually. Her maiden name is Fenris. So... Camille Fenris. A member of the infamous crime-loving money-launderers and poachers here in Mistral." In short, Camille was the daughter of a fairly famous crime boss... or would have been at the time.

"Married Corvus Branwen, had two children -- twins, yourself and Raven -- and then mysteriously disappeared almost thirty-five years ago. I have a few... 'friends' in the Fenris family who found some records. Camille came to her father and received new paperwork that changed her identity, and she became Camille Lorn, first living in Windpath until she eventually moved to the city. There she was not wedded, but had three more children. Her common law husband died three years ago. Major organ failure. No determined cause, but certainly... questionable if you ask me. Before that, he seemed to be in good health." She chuckled, swirling her drink as she took another sip.

"Can't say I'd blame her. Probably got tired of the old bastard." She gauged Qrow's reaction, making careful mental notes. "Your turn. Sienna Khan and the Fang. What do you know about their connection to the incident in Vale?"

Everything had a price, especially information. Qrow knew very well the price that he might have to pay to get the information he wanted, and it would be worth it. While this might have been a personal vendetta and mission he was on, he was willing to take the risk.

He listened as Redbird gave him the information that he had asked for. At that point, nothing surprised him about his mother… especially considering that they were in Mistral on Anima. After all, Anima is the best place to hide if that’s what you want to do. What had caught his attention was the health issues. It was an… interesting thing to hear. If the sickness was sudden, it could be any number of things. However that was not the concern at that moment. Taking a swig of his drink, he listened to what the Redbird wanted to know. Information, of course. Sienna Khan and the White Fang. “The White Fang are credited for being the main force behind the attack at Vale,” Qrow responded as he set his glass down, “Not only did Fang members attack civilians, they also brought in Grimm via airway. Adam Taurus, the Fang’s Cell leader in Vale, was there on the grounds of Beacon himself. Right now, he’s the most wanted man in Vale, and every huntsmen and huntress is doing what they can to track him down and capture him.

“Sienna Khan, however, denies any involvement in the incident. She claims that the Vale Cell has gone rogue and splintered off from the main head of the Fang. Whether you believe that or not is up to you.”

How disappointing. Surely Qrow had more to offer than just paltry information... Information that Sera could have garnered herself within a few moments. She knew what Sienna's plan was with the Fang. She didn't hide her disappointment; in fact, she knew more about the Fang that what Qrow likely surmised... And she was sure he could figure out that what he'd told her was something she already knew. She raised an eyebrow at him, questioning the quality of his information.

"That information is paltry," she said bluntly, crossing her arms. Clearly, she was displeased. "Do you not think I don't have insiders in the Fang who gave me that information months ago? That's not what I'm looking for." She needed something more. After all, she still held the whereabouts of Qrow's mother... And she wasn't opposed to whisking the woman out of sight if necessary, just to keep her prey chasing. She'd set her drink down, and was leaned back in her chair, looking dangerously displeased with his attempts.

"Anybody with a connection to the CCT before it went down knows full well that Sienna was not the one on those communication lines." She was subtly telling Qrow she knew he was holding information back... But yet, so was she. She would have other ways to find her information, and she held some very desirable information for Qrow, she knew. "I know the Fang was involved. I know what they did. It's not hard to get that much out here.

"I want to know who that woman was. A name. She claims she's from Mistral... And I would most certainly like to get my hands on her.... Preferably around her throat." A sadistic smile crossed her face. Now that much was not a lie; she most certainly wanted to squeeze the life out of that woman. "Everything you know about her, about who she competed with in the Vytals, if at all... Who else was involved with her. The more I know... Then possibly, the more I can dig up. If it goes well... I could be inclined to offer a few favours," she said, raising her eyebrows. "Surely a Huntsman like yourself knows where information such as that could be passed."

This was a dangerous chess game, she knew. Unfortunately for Qrow, she was a master chess player.

So the Redbird was testing him, or rather testing his information. Qrow took a drink from his glass before setting it down once more. Information trading was a balance, and it was not something that could be taken lightly. He could lie, of course, about what he knew, but then he would never be given information again. He also couldn’t reveal too many details or specifics. However, revealing some of the information would be worth it if it meant he could get more information about the group in the future.

“The woman who spoke over the CCT,” Qrow responded, “We believe her name is Cinder. Cinder Fall. Whether or not that is her really name has yet to be determined, but that was what she called herself. During the Vytal Festival, two of her teammates or rather her claimed teammates were Mercury Black and Emerald Sustrai. Once again, we do not know if these are their true names, but if they are… well, I’m sure you’re aware of what the last name of Black could mean.”

Qrow knew more, of course… much more… However, he wasn’t going to reveal his hand if he didn’t have to. It was a good thing he knew how to play poker.

Cinder Fall. Still information that Sera knew, but Qrow was starting to go in the right direction. She feigned interest, though the names Emerald Sustrai and Mercury Black did ring a bell. Particularly Mercury... She'd remembered hearing Marcus Black had a son. She also remembered that there'd been neither hide nor hair of Marcus for a very long time. But when Qrow stopped, Sera gave him an expectant look. He wasn't playing as well into her game as she'd hoped. She paused, waiting for him to continue, as she stared expectantly, but nothing.

"Names I can look into, Qrow. You're barely scratching the surface at this point." She had to give him a reason to keep going, of sorts. "If that's all you've got for me, then your payment is incomplete." Now she had to make her move. She finished her drink, setting it down and slowly rising out of her seat, straightening her dress and flexing her wings as she did so. "Information comes at a price. You have one more chance to pay up, or I'll ensure you'll never find Camille's trail again. If I have to, I'll make her disappear myself." Her tone was serious, and clearly threatening.

"Pay up." He had about five seconds to start talking, or she would be gone from his sight forever. And, with it, she would tell just the right people, and Camille Branwen's trail would disappear into thin air.

So that was the game she wanted to play. Qrow wasn’t surprised at the Redbird’s threats, whether they were idle or not didn’t matter. It was Mistral, after all. Disappearing, hiding… it was the way of life. It was one reason Qrow was glad to have been rid of the place when he and Raven left for Vale and Beacon.

Qrow leaned back in his chair a bit, “I think you misunderstand. You asked for details about Sienna Khan and what their connection to the Vale incident was. Then, you ask about the woman who has no connection to Khan or the White Fang. I have answered both questions. Now, we both know that I can finish tracking down Camille without your help with what you’ve already told me, whether you hide her or not. I’ll find her, one way or another. So, let me give you a proposition now.” Qrow motioned for a waitress to bring more drinks. After she brought them by the table, he took a swig of his. “How about we cut the bull. Tell me what you are after and what you really want to know. Then maybe we can stop playing this blind game of chess, and I can actually tell you what you want to know.”

Qrow had played riskier games than the one he was playing now. Then again, he wasn’t bluffing. He had never personally gone after Camille due to his… large dislike of the woman. The only reason he was going after her now was because of what she told Raven. He had a reason to track her down now; he wouldn’t stop until he found her.

Welcome
Welcome to World of Remnant. We are an AU, no-wordcount RWBY roleplay beginning at the conclusion of Volume 3. The Fall Maiden is dead, her powers in the hands of the enemy. Beacon Academy has fallen, and Vale is soon to fall itself. The Vytal Festival is a disaster; thousands dead, many more injured. Grimm populations are at an ever-present surplus. What dire circumstances has Remnant fallen prey to?

Updates
23.12.16 Happy Holidays from all of the staff here at World of Remnant! We'd like to thank everyone here for supporting us. We're nearly 30 members strong and nearly a year old, and the best RWBY roleplay site out there! As 2016 nears an end and Vol 4 reaches its halfway point hopefully we can keep this momentum going forward! Stay tuned as the staff will have some stocking stuffers for everyone in the near future.

13.12.16 Salutations! As many of you are well aware a BIG update launched Sunday. A major event, a mini event, a new continent is opening up to be explored, and a lot of lore has been expanded upon. You can read all about it in the 6th edition of our Newsletter. For those of you who have read it already, I've added a couple of things today so give it a second look.

06.12.16: Hey guys! We're coming to you with a small update from the staff desk regarding pending applications. As you know, we have been VERY bogged down with applications, so we are making a slight change to how things are going to work. From now on, all members are limited to ONE pending application at a time, as opposed to the previous allowance of two. This is to help lighten our work load as staff and allow us to get other work that has fallen by the wayside completed. We know you are all excited for new things, but we as staff need time to get things done as well!

Secondly, players who have more than 3 characters must wait a minimum of 3 days between posting new character applications. Players with more than 5 characters must wait a week between applications. This is to space things out a bit and allow us to streamline the app process so we aren't daunted with 5 or more applications to review per day.
