It seemed like just last week she was announcing the birth of her children and now, today, she would be announcing the death of her brother. Filled with bitterness, she would take her place at the altar in the church's main hall, staring at the haphazardly scribbled notes before her. She.. She didn't have the mental clarity these past couple days to think properly. It was like a thick fog had descended upon her thoughts, and trying to get a coherent idea out was as fruitless as swimming through mud. But whatever, she just.. Had to get through this one meeting. Then she could go back to her nest. First though, she had something important to announce. Something she needed to share.
"We've been abandoned by God." Saoirse's voice was bitter as she spoke, though she made no effort to project it. "He has turned his back on the Blackheart Rogues, so you can stop with whatever prayers you keep sending Him. It's useless. And how do I know this? Four days ago, he took away a Practioner, a friend, a brother and a father. Rockfox Weaver-Alexandrov was taken from us, and for what? God's plan? I ask you, what part of God's plan did his passing benefit? What part could it possibly play?" Her nose wrinkled at the vile sentiment, pungent like bile on her tongue. "None. So now we can stop wasting our time on meaningless prayers and Sunday sermons. Just... stop it all. It's worthless."
She glanced at her notes again, begrudgingly moving onwards, "On the topic of abandonment - the week the Blackheart Rogues said goodbye to Roguevirus. She's been with us for months now, but seemingly found one reason or another to move on. We don't know where she went, or why, but her scent went across the border so we stopped our investigation there." Things like that must've ran in the family, huh? No wonder.
"Moving on, Dr. Schneeplestein, as per our discussion in the high position meeting, you will now be appointed as our Practioner due to your experience in the field. Bear in mind, however - you are on probation. Your activity needs to be pulled up if you wish to arrive on time to save lives. You will be training Azamael, who has volunteered to reclaim his spot of Practioner's Student. A medic try-out will also be hosted by the two to find a second Student.
Staying on the topic of promotions, we have three people stepping up to Blackstep this week - Zenon, Diarmuid and Krymson." Her heart swelled momentarily at the thought of her son's promotion. If there was one positive thing that remained, it was her children. Her sweet, beautiful children. She held them so high on her pedestal, but damnit, why shouldn't she. "Narcissus. I would like you to step up to Heartkeeper of Enemies. If you have any questions regarding the role, ask Nico. Speaking of - Nico, thank you for pulling up your activity. It's been noted and appreciated.
Lastly - titles. Beleg, Zenon and Diego, you've earned the Keen titles. Narcisus and Krymson, you've earned the Socialite titles. Upstarts titles are going to Seamus, Narcisus and Diarmuid."
Thankful that she had reached the end of her list, she was quick to crumple it up, not wanting to see its contents any longer than she had to, "And if no one has anything else to say, this meeting is dismissed."
