It’s England in the early 1900s, and very pentacle of human innovation and the dawning of a new technological revolution, but with it, came something else.

As she steps from the kitchen into the back yard, Hetty raises a protection barrier around her, not wanting to take any chances if something is still lurking. The bubble moves with her as she briskly walks to the nearest section of wall.

Placing her hands against the smooth stone, Hetty closes her eyes and fills the physical barrier with her presence. She looks for any cracks and weak points that could be taken advantage of and is pleasantly surprised by how few of them she finds. Her magic binds those areas, enforcing them.

Drawing a ruin on the wall with her index finger, Hetty mutters a few words under her breath and steps away from the wall, separating herself from the barrier around the inn's yard. It is a rather basic protection, but it will at least give warning and a bit of extra time if something unwanted attempts to come on the property.

Not wishing to tempt fate any longer Hetty hurries into the safety of the inn, releasing the protection spell on herself as she passes the threshold back into the kitchen.

After digging around in the kitchen for a few moments, Anna found a large container of old lamp oil and cooking sherry. Tucking a pack of matches into her pocket, she takes the liquids with her to the back yard.

It's a shame that this will create an ugly spot right in the middle of the lawn but she supposes it would be an ideal spot for a flowerbed. Perhaps placing a bench in the area would be nice as well. Not really having any interest in touching the creature, Anna picks up a stick and uses it to prod the pieces into a nicer pile, breaking up the wood and tossing it on top as extra tinder.

Satisfied, she uncorks the lamp oil and starts pouring it on, following up with the sherry. The amount she uses is perhaps a bit of an overkill but Anna really has no interest in taking chances at this moment in time. Backing away, she strikes a few matches, flinging them onto the pile and watching the flames that begin to dance among the creature bits.

Having only been in his room for a few minutes before seeing the spark and the dancing flames, Allyister Has little choice but race out onto the balcony, where he leaps down into the yard, pushing his palm out, using his telekinesis to rip the head off the creature, and pull it from the flames into his waiting hands.

"That was almost too close madam," He says, holding the monster's head in his hands as he steps away from the growing flames. "We can't afford to just try and destroy these...offspring, spawn, whatever they are compared to the prime. It's worth studying, the last time there was another one of these beast, a fool tried killing it and I believe the monster simply became something else, something much harder to kill, like a virus...but.."he shrugs, "but worse."

Startled by the unexpected appearance of Allyster Anna takes an involuntary step back. "And what is to stop that" she motions to the head "from sprouting limbs and trying to kill us?"

The idea of having any part of one of these creatures in her establishment voluntarily is not one Anna Maria approves of. Studying the man holding the head in front of her, Anna's hands go to her hips.

"While I agree that having a better understanding of ones enemy will help with future defense, and hopefully the eradication of this Prime as you call it, I will not condone activities where the negatives outweigh the benefits. Being killed in my own home by a wayward appendage that you are "studying" is not a risk I am particularly excited to take."

She wonders as to what the gentleman is really after. His knowledge of the creatures and the timing in which he arrived at the inn couldn't just be coincidental. She has to admit though, she can't fault his logic thus far.

"Convince me, Mr. Cain, why this risk is worth it."

Laughing at her comment, "I am," and he lifts the head up admiring it, and wondering if he could somehow absorb or take on its power like had with the demon of old, he considers trying to ingest the creature and see its power would spread to him, but this being a spawn he weighs the risk, finding it wanting. He would have to wait to fight the prime, or the Alpha it had spawned from.

He frowns slightly at Anna's (nagging) and shakes his head, "I..." He pauses choosing his wording carefully, "I hail from a long line of...demon hunters, my ancient Ancestor, had once hunted here, and his power has passed from generation to generation, I can move things with my mind as it were, and keep this little of the fiend in a invisible, sealed barrier, preventing it from even absorbing oxygen, if I sense it trying to evolve, or take on life, I can crush it into nothing."

He then turns and smiles at Anna, "there's nothing to fear from me, or it while I'm in charge."

She narrows her eyes at his implication of being in charge. "It will not enter the inn. You may keep that thing fully contained in the greenhouse in the garden. I would be very interested in your findings."

Having the feeling that he will gladly take advantage of any vagueness or loopholes in her words, Anna is far more blunt than she would normally be with a new resident to the inn. He does not seem to bring out the best in her mood.

"This is not a request. This is how it will be. If I find that any part of this creature, or any others make it within my walls including the bit you shared earlier, I will not hesitate in demanding that you destroy the remains and leave the premises." Her eyes hold his, waiting for his affirmation.

Allyister bristles at being spoke in such a manner, but only lets it show on his face for a moment, before sighing, and "Very well, I shall study this beast in the vastly inferior greenhouse." And lets loose oppressive Aura, letting Anna feel it's affects. The affect is naturally stronger the closer one is to him, even strong beings struggle to stand beside him as it the aura drains their strength and causes gravity to have a stronger affect on them, not just weakening them, but making them feel sickly as well. Fortunately though for Anna he only lets off just enough to test her strength and resolve while he pretends not to have any idea of what's happening around him as he studies the creature's head.

Face neutral, Anna nods her acceptance. "Thank you." Silently she reminds herself that as he has agreed to her terms, kicking him out or stabbing him through the eye would be a bit overkill in this moment.

Beginning to feel a bit lightheaded and woozy, she looks at the burning bits. The fumes must be getting to her she thinks. Figuring she should probably distance herself before the gnawing at her stomach becomes any worse she turns on her heel and walks gracefully back towards the kitchen, not betraying her sudden sense of weakness. The last thing she wants is to show this infuriating man that a little smoke is getting to her.

Allyister Humphs, at her leaving, and turns to find his way to the greenhouse. "Now, what secrets will you come to show me." He says walking away from the burning mounds of flesh.
