Father and my brother Koen have traveled to Sumatra for expedition, and will be unavailable except for special situations by teleport, though they prefer not to be interrupted. Dr. Mason recently came into possession of photographs of Koen's mother, Lucian. Among the collection are images taken by Dr. Jerimiah Mason on his expedition to Sumatra where he encountered the Bloodtail Neko tribe and captured her, as well as some later photos of Lucian in servitude to the Mason household. Darien would have barely been in his teens when the last photo was taken.
Father used these photographs to conduct a séance, which as a Reanimator he has never failed to accomplish with the utmost precision. But in this case her spirit was not recovered. To him, this is proof that Lucian has not yet expended all of her nine lives.
I shall post a few of these pictures..though some are too gruesome to share even in sepia. If by any chance some Caledonian adventurer can identify the stone structures or other geography I will telegraph Dr. Mason immediately so he can narrow his search.
Our eternal thanks to Miss Emilly Orr for discovering these prints.
I am managing the Bloodwing Foundation in Dr. Mason's absence. I am also training my new clockwork sister, Hinako Kohime.
I will be hosting the next Steelhead Ball this Friday as well. I have already found a sponsor, Caledon's small, cute, fuzzy, talented and distinguished Mr. One-Was (1wuz) Gray. I believe a Best in Tiny Avatars event would the most appropriate festivity, which I shall suggest at the Town Meeting tonight at 7:30.
I do hope Dr. Mason will return for the breaking ground of the Hospital, which would occur next week, Guvna providing. I hope you succeed in your quest for you and my brother's sake, Father. I hope she is alive, and I hope she wishes to be found. Do return safely.
