Crystal Research

Post by Damascus on Fri May 12, 2017 12:18 am

Shortly after their return, Da Vinci announced the destination of the first Singularity: France circa 1431--it would land them in the middle of the Hundred Years' War. She suggested the Masters do a minimum amount of research on that period of history.

Lazarus spent the next few days researching the crystal in a dedicated lab. What was immediately obvious was that it contained an unbelievable amount of mana--the only thing Lazarus had ever seen contain more mana was the Greater Grail. From what he could tell, it wasn't meant to be channeled by a magus for spell use--like an Azoth Sword would be. Instead, the magus was meant to instruct the crystal to use the mana itself to enact magic and rituals, similar to a Holy Grail granting a wish.

After another day of study, he discerned its secondary function--it was connected to the Throne of Heroes, and held a mechanism for summoning Heroic Spirits. That's when Lazarus could finally piece together what the crystal really was.

It was a Holy Grail. A rudimentary one, though--it had no Lesser and Greater components, so it most likely wasn't powerful enough to reach the Root. But it was still a Grail capable of summoning Servants and granting limited wishes.

Lazarus recorded his research and informed the others as to what he had found. He posited that perhaps Lev had more of these in the other singularities. Especially if he'd been working closely with Marisbury. To that end, he also requested that if Marisbury left anything behind, or Olga for that matter, he wanted to take a look at it. He needed to find out if Marisbury's suicide had any connection to the current events. He offered to help Dr. Roman in any way possible, partly to assist him but also because Lazarus was very certain he would not make a good leader. And considering the incident with Lev, he was running short on trust for others in the mage's association.

Da Vinci concurred that more Holy Grails were likely to turn up in the other Singularities.

Unfortunately, she says, most data that Marisbury had left behind that didn't directly pertain to Chaldea was all deleted. Though she agrees his suicide seems fishy, she says it's also not that surprising considering his mental state at the time. Investigations didn't bring up anything unusual--Marisbury himself was seen turning off the security feed to his office shortly before his death.

Upon hearing that news, Lazarus frowned and shook his head, "That is simply not right. How was this not investigated further at the time? And how does Olga not have any information pertaining to this?"

Da Vinci looked troubled. "Believe me, it was investigated to the absolute fullest extent. Every single piece of evidence pointed to suicide--he entered his office, turned off the security feed, sat down in his desk, took a gun from his drawer and shot himself in the head."

"Obviously, I suspect foul play, but we just couldn't find any." She sighed. "If it was Lev--and let's be honest, that's almost definitely who did it--a Holy Grail could have easily let him get away with it."

Lazarus grumbled, "We really need to get something in place for this...kind of situation. My daughters can't grow older soon enough." hew as quiet for a moment, and wrote down a few notes in the notebook he carried with him. "What if we were able to rayshift some people back to observe him at that time?"
