Early next morning we head straight to the orphanage that Skye was rumored to last be seen. Rae and Thorn decide to be the ones to head inside while Ashkhad and Ratchet scope the surrounding area. As the owner to the orphanage answers the door, Rae is stunned momentarily. She has a vision of the past, a memory long locked away. She is hidden away under a bed under her parents orders. A man’s blood drenched face appears. He stares for a moment then moves on.
Thorn taps Rae out of her stupor and Rae asks if they can ask some questions. They are invited inside and begin by talking about the state of the orphanage. They learn that the orphanage is actually only full of changeling children. And that the owners are there to teach them important life skills that they can use before they grow up and get sent out into the world. Among that, Rae learns that the one her killed her parents is the man she is talking too and that her sister Skye had also went to see him a few days ago. She learns that the original murder of her parents wasn’t just a hate crime against changelings but rather that he was hired by someone named Koh for a large sum of money, and that after the event he put his payment towards building the orphanage. Rae forgives him and before they leave she learns of two locations of some importance. The base of operations where the owner went to meet Koh for jobs and a warehouse by the docks.
While nothing turns up at the house, as we investigate the warehouse, a group walks in demanding us to surrender and follow them. Rather than taking them down, we decide to just follow them and see where they take us. Sacks are placed over there heads and our hands are tied behind our backs as we are guided to an underground room. Skye is found beaten and tied to a chair. Rae loosens the binds around her hands and rushes to Skye’s side. Skye can barely speak but manages to mumble something about a key. Suddenly a wave of psionic energy overwhelms the group and press us down on the ground and renders us unable to move. Helias appears and Skye changes to take the appearance of another changeling named Koh. Helias demands that we retrieve a dragonshard being kept by House Cannith for the release of Skye and gives a three day deadline and Rae agrees. We are taken back out and plan our next course of action.
