Dara

In Amber Castle. She talks to ghost Benedict discussed Finndo and Osric. Benedict warns her about them. Dara thinks that this could be fun

She trumps Tori. Make some plans and trump 13. They tell him that they are going to go and talk to Finndo and Osric, and they want to know if he wants to go along. He tells them that he would love to. Tori pulls him through and he finds himself back on Ki-tung’s ship. The gang is all here. There is discussion about Tori’s run in with the Crow Sisters. Off to the Pirate haven.

---

Tori and 13 take a diversion to Tori’s Happy Place. They remove Llewella’s pattern trick and 13 learns how to do it.

---

Back to the boat. Dara and Fineas make some plans. Dara thinks about hitting the mirror-verse and quickly reject it. They move on to plan “A” and go for the direct approach. They meet with Osric and he checks them out. He requires them to do “stupid pattern tricks” to prove that they are in fact members of the family. Fineas pulls out all of his diplomatic stops to swing them over to his point of view. Osric still thinks that they are shape shifted Oberon and is very wary of them. Fineas comes up with a cunning plan to convince them.

---

Dara and Tori take him to Mount Kolvir to prove to him that things had indeed changed. Osric trumps Finndo to show him that Fineas was telling the truth. Though they still think everybody is a disguised Oberon.

They express their displeasure at the changes made to Amber society in their absence. Everybody is off to the Castle to meet the Regent. The meet and greet goes better then expected. Ghost Benedict fills them in on all that they missed while they were trapped.

---

Tori and Dara discuss Jelerak’s son Turgon and his task of making a body Benedict. Dara talks to Benedict about the cloning process. They need a DNA sample of a nonempowered family member.

Dara and Tori leave and make there way to the “Grandson” of Oberon. Tori has some trouble getting in due to her disguise. They take a look at the process. They get everything cooking on the cloning.

---

Flora and 13 discuss her previous request to feign his love to his mother to get her to join the family. She went and talked to Merrell herself and Merrell has rejoined the family. Much fun in the castle as all of the adults test out each others skill levels. Fineas joins in on the fun. Finndo and Osric seem to be in line with the rest of the family’s abilities.

---

Fineas gathers his posse together for some good guy bonding. Fineas fills them in on his family background.

---

13 goes to Vulnavia with his mom to check out Diego’s half brother. They find him to be far more tolerable then Diego.

---

Tori and Dara get a sample of Benedicts DNA and the process continues. They go to Rebma to await the results. Before they leave they give Turgon a sample of Dara’s blood for good measure.

---

Fineas takes care of Ki’s ship. Checks up on the giants. He goes back to Ki’s and takes care of business. When finished they discuss Pirates.

He leaves Ki to go in search of the “fountain of Youth”. Enters into a discussion to take control of it. Gives it a coin to “feed” it. Finds out it wants blood. Fineas is very disturbed that everything in the Universe wants his blood.

He goes in search of an “Ageless Area”. Goes to Rebma to recover.

---

The meeting with Doc. Savage goes well.

---

The Benedict erector set continues on track.

They head into the Mirror-verse to check things out. They spy the crow sisters passing overhead. They are in search of Delwin and Sands hospital rooms. Tori trumps Flora about Llewella. They make a deal to meet with Delwin and Sand in Flora’s Earth shadow Mexico. They talk about the Binding power. They work on fixing Delwin and Sand.
