Wasyli slammed on the brakes as his '69 Yenko Camaro hit the curb of the driveway to the Krauss Estate. His vehicle coming to a skidding halt in the midst of the driveway, as the driver door was flung open. Emerging from the car, and locking it all up tight, he quickly made his way into the Estate as the sun was soon to set.

He knew he was early, he'd beaten everyone else here, and he could do nothing but hope, and perhaps even pray, that those deemed to be here this night made it just in the nick of time before they all became naught but ash upon the sun's rays blessing their Kindred skin.

Gabriel made it to the Krauss Estate without wasting any time. He did send @Rubì Caldera a text, signifying he would be late arriving at the villa - and he had no available ETA at this time - although he encouraged her to make his home her own. The kidnapping development was important though, and Gabriel knew better than to falter on that one. Having made it past security, the Toreador headed straight for the main entrance, asking to be taken to the main salon the moment he came across the butler or someone of that ilk.

"Gabriel Villiers, here to see miss Moceanu on the orders from the Autarch," he announced himself when coming across the first person inside the manor.

Once he was shown where to go and wait, the Toreador would do just that - hoping that whatever he was expected to do here would not take all night - but even if it did, he would make it up to his current house occupant, if she let him. Or he could just make her let him. Ghouls. They were a wonderful thing!

Victor quickly left the Cathedral, getting into his blacked out vehicle and heading for the Krauss Estate. The speed in which this night had gone from bad to worse was astronomical. At least he had changed out of his ridiculous getup and was once more in normal clothing. He has eschewed the suit jacket and tie, going simply with a shirt and vest. He may have been the Lord Magister, but being presentable went out the window in the face of an emergency.

Making a beeline for the estate, he pulled up to the gate, only to be let in almost immediately. He pulled in next to some other vehicles, and was ushered in by the butler. He was brought to the others that had already arrived. He nodded his greetings to Wasyli and Gabriel, before looking around for the ladies. "Any word from Serena and Elena?"

Oh, fuck - wonderful - now I'm really out of my element!

Watching Sobieski and LaGuardia made their way into the Salon, the Toreador suddenly felt inadequate in the face of two senior Erebos members who had made their presence known. "My lords," he acknowledged each with a polite nod, rising up from the settee he'd previously reclined upon. "I have received miss Moceanu's message, although I defer my purpose to whatever you both might find desirable; I have yet to catch a glimpse of Miss Moceanu or anyone else inhabiting the manor and it is my fondest wish that all inhabitants of this house are safe and sound... although I have a feeling this is not necessarily the case," he said, falling silent - expecting more details to be forthcoming from either Kindred who probably had more information regarding the supposed attack and abduction - than Gabriel could possibly guess at.

Storm burst into the Krauss Estate like an angry bull. Not tearing down everything she met in her path, but not caring whether anyone heard her coming, either. Almost immediately, she alerted the staff to lock and bar all entrances, and let no one in unless they were members of Erebos Triumvirate or their direct underlings which she had communicated with, earlier. That narrowed the list to three people, some of which she hoped were already here, tonight.

"AB negative!" she screamed out to a passing valet who regarded her undisguised fear. It was probably the outfit, Storm thought, tugging angrily at the veil and pulling off the mask that made her look like hell's demon incarnate. "Any word from misters Sobieski or LaGuardia?" she snapped, heading straight for the salon. Catching a glimpse of a blonde head popping up at an odd angle, she stopped dead in her tracks.

No, it wasn't Tristan Krauss, obviously. That had to be the other Toreador - Gabriel Villiers. But he was not alone - nearby she noted the imposing figures of the two Ventrue whom she inquired about only moments ago. In an instant, Storm changed her demeanor - becoming almost docile in manner.

Slowing down her momentum, she released Elena from her grasp and waited to be acknowledged. "The Krauss manor has been secured. Serena Perras, and Miss Elena Moceanu, reporting in."

"Thanks!"

Elena flashed Storm a glance of confusion. Her Tenebris 'colleague' had been dragging her through a complex maze of the old town, without much consideration for any obstacles they would encounter in their path. Without a doubt, she expected Elena to dodge any and all of those as they came up, only Elena - being a rather natural klutz, did not always succeed. As such, she stood there with tears in her costume (most notably the skirt and sleeves), new runs in her (once pristine) white stockings, and a remarkable collection of twigs, leaves and spiderwebs in her hair.

Oh well - nothing a proper shower wouldn't fix.

"Hiiii...." she glanced from Wasyli, to Gabriel, to Victor. "You guys been waiting long? Is my Sire here and is he safe?!"

Nothing about Urs. The idea never even crossed her mind. Not like the blonde bombshell could not take care of herself? Otherwise, she deserved everything that was coming to her. THE. END.

Gabriel merely acknowledged Elena with a small smile, finding the Toreador's disheveled appearance oddly 'fetching'. He would not speak however, still waiting to hear back from the two senior Erebos Elders - quietly ignoring the fact that Elena seemed invested only in Tristan's safety and not at all interested in helping his shanghaied wife...

Victor was about to speak more when Storm and Elena came storming in. He watched Storm report matter-of-factly, like a new recruit reporting for their first duty. He couldn't help but smirk slightly. Turning to face them directly with his hands clasped behind his back he spoke, "You two are well? Any information on the attack? Any details will be extremely helpful. It seems rather brash for the Brotherhood to make an attack like this, also out of character. They normally don't take hostages. At least not from what I've read up about them." He had one more string he could pull, but he'd pull that one later. He wanted information from the two of them now. He also had several questions for his assistant, but those could wait - for now.
