Master Harpy Report of Jacob Clarke:
The evening of July 13, 2013 the Kindred of Boston observed the annual Assassination Day Celebration at the manor of her Majesty, the Venerated Constance Fournier, Prince of Boston. In the spirit of the evening the majority of guests from both near and far adorned themselves in the customs of Assassins. This annual celebration is one of the few times the Prince allows anyone into her territory, though members of the Clan of Assassins are usually permitted to be exterminated on sight.
As in years past the crush of Kindred was respectfully large and several dignitaries made their introduction at the earlier court session while those with unexpected travel challenges made their introductions at a reconvened court. Through the evening we witnessed a number of intriguing interactions that in some cases were rewarded either privately or publicly and those that were resolved in like manner.
As soon as court opened visiting dignitaries were introduced: from Texas the Gangril Elder Equinox, from Santa Fe Toreador Primogen Mikel Gunter and Gabriel, from Philadelphia Prince Eirik Alexson, William Edric, Seneschal Mark Teller, and from Atlantic City Prince Ibrahim Aslan, Sheriff Camille Clark, Scourge Jamie Walker, Toreador Primogen Rinadlo de Medici, and Primogen Adalwuf. When the Elder Prince Alexson from the Brujah clan along with his select delegation from Philadelphia approached our host of the evening her Majesty Constance Fournier was observed snapping her fingers as Prince Alexson was being introduced by Eric Kincaid. There is some debate as to whether he sped out of the chamber before she snapped her fingers or after. Either way at the snap of her fingers as a trained fighting machine Doctor Avery Carmichael, Equinox, Jackson Wild, Alexander Warden, and Jerard de Medici formed a protective perimeter around Prince Constance Fournier. As Eirik Alexson sped away Equinox followed close behind.
The evening gets better with Elder Brujah Primogen Eric Kincaid of Boston offering unwanted or requested opinions during court and being subsequently led by his pinched ear with Prince Constance Fournier guiding him out and away for a private chat.
Seneschal Jackson Wild then took over the court meeting Recognizing a number of visitors and those petitioning to take up residents in Boston. Toreador: Mikel Gunther, Gabriel, and Virginia Archer. Malkavian: Dorian Twain and Dotty. Gangril: Conrow Shey. Tremere: Delores Rayleigh.
As the evening wore on a Camarilla status holding Assamite from Rhode Island presented a letter to Prince Constance Fournier from the Prince of Newport where in she was invited to attend a party in Rhode Island. The letter was handled indirectly first by Elysium Keeper Rags and eventually by Seneschal Jackson Wild who examined it prior to reading it for Prince Constance Fournier. Soon afterwards three visiting kindred from Atlantic City were noted discussing the visit of an Assamite during the Assassination Day Celebrations. Would the Assamite win the costume contest and would that be considered cheating?
During the course of the evening the Prince was gifted a piece of artwork and had a private concert provided by the Santa Fe Toreador. The winner of the costume contest was announced as a tie. Grigori of clan Brujah and Alexander Warden of clan Ventrue both won a rise in status for their excellent costuming.
As for Harpy business: Be it known as I am Influential as Master Harpy of Boston I bestow one level of temporary negative status of Impertinent upon Elder Prince Eirik Alexson of Philadelphia effective the time of this pronouncement expiring at dawn of August 31, 2013.
Furthermore be it known as I am Established as Master Harpy of Boston I bestow one level of temporary negative status of Impetuous upon Eldar Brujah Primogen Eric Kincaid of Boston effective the time of this pronouncement expiring at dawn of August 31, 2013.
I will be following up on a rumor regarding an alleged assault on Elysium grounds and conferring with the Elysium Keeper as to the ferocity of these claims. I have full confidence Elysium Keeper Rags has already either dealt with it, discovered it a hoax, or waiting respectfully upon me to discuss and include me in addressing this alleged serious matter.
