After finishing the paperwork and introducing themselves the coterie tried to find more information about their job that was a test for entry into Houston. Many among the group learned that the supposed independent ghouls were not in fact ghouls at all but ordinary humans, Martin also discovered that fellow Tremere Adam Wright was the author of the official report.
Later Daedalus had found a local church that was close to the epicenter of the kidnappings and Sonny had browbeaten some homeless people into giving up some information they decide that the Trinity Episcopal church was the site that was harboring the kidnappers. After swiftly infiltrating the side building of the church complex they killed 3 guards and were able to capture 2 of the members (discovered to be members of an unknown cult) and stash them in a nearby storage park. Unfortunately Zachary had panicked when many unsuspecting homeless people who had taken refuge in the church ran for the exit and killed them before they could escape as well as mesmerizing a beat cop that had been passing by, by the name of “Hitckins.”
Shortly after a brief and halfhearted interrogattion by Sonny to the head priest they were informed that the cult were servants of the “first mother” and that the vampires of the city were all traitors that would be destroyed. After calling a provided phone number both Meera and Toshio arrived and swiftly extricated the priset and lesser cultist.
Finally after returning to the Elysium to report their findings Katerina believed that they had proven themselves worthy of admission into the city and declared that she would recommend the prince accept them as official neonates of the city of Houston.
