YOU PUT A FEVER INSIDE ME — caera — the cartel — she/her — tags
(Retro to Exiles raid!)
The only thought going through her head was how late she was on this as she scampered to where she usually held meetings, a large and comfortable room in the Aztec temple. had she been a human, she would have brushed off her overly-professional suit and tightened her ponytail. Instead, she settled for flipping over her right ear and calling for everyone together. "Aight, everyone get over here! Time for the meeting and I don't think anyone wants to wait any longer!"
Per usual, she'd wait for a few member of her Crew to gather before talking about the new changes. "The Knights of Eden, lead by our very own George, have been promoted to neutrals, as have The Skulls." George had recently told her about him leading The Knights of Eden, and after some discussion, they decided to work together. Selfdestruction had come to The Cartel not much later after that, requesting to be neutrals. "The Knights of Eden are also being bumped up to our first associates. I want everyone to deal on the down low with every Clan - many clans don't like what we do, so word getting out that a clan is an associate could ruin their reputation. If they're dealing with us, we don't that; if they aren't, we have some blackmail." She sat down, lifting a paw up to tap her maw thoughtfully. "Someone from the Currency division needs to go over there and give them some Carets. Enough to support the entire group for a month."
The Divisions were just starting to get up and going. They needed to put their full attention towards them so tat they didn't flail and die right off the bat. To do that, they'd have to stop something that had already seemed to flail and die. "The Battle Arena's over. We're just not ready for it. I wanna focus our efforts of the Divisions and getting out name out there. Once those are able to stand on their own, maybe we can go back to the Battle Arena." To be honest, Caera wasn't really sure if that was very... Cartel. The Divisions were something that definitely yelled out "MAFIA! THE CARTEL!" but the Battle Arena was more of a "VIOLENCE! NO MERCY!" Against popular belief, The Cartel wasn't all about violence and destroying others. Perhaps something like The Gang Wars, that had once been a thing under previous leaders, would suit them better than a battle arena. She'd have to talk about it later with Xael.
"Now, I wanna welcome everyone new to the crew! Make sure to sign up for a division by talking to the Capos, check out the billboard with all the Divisions info on it, and get around to knowing everyone. Some people bite though, so watch out." Well gosh, now she really did sound like an old grandma. Guess she was living up to her title, eh? "Arcane has been demoted from his position as Surgeon, and both Cecil and Angelo receive a warning. I like to be lax with activity, but you need to step it up, guys. We gotta represent, ya know? Speaking of representing, Ryuksaki and Somebody are doing great at that! They're both promoted to Vanguards. Trevor, you're doing great so you get a shout out. keep it up and you'll get a promotion, as well." Well, that was all she had to say. She shifted into a more comfortable position as she hunkered down for the oncoming questions. "That's all I have to say, so meeting's over."
