The Wayfarer Chronicle
The Deadly Duo
Alia the Technocrat and Alexi the Dauntain, born of the Spanish Inquisition, are attempting to sink New Orleans. The Dauntain is only interested in death and distruction, he was caught by the Technocrat some years ago and was released after some torture and conditioning. Now he serves her because he can kill other changelings, but he plans to kill his mistress some day.
Alia has found a way to drain glamour from a fae host, leaving only the mortal form behind. She is using the resulting energy to fuel weapons that are still experimental at best, but she is making quick progress all the time. The goal she shares with the Dauntain is to sink the city, which draining the glamour will begin to do as the nets of energy running through the earth begin to weaken and fade. Her true goal is to collect enough glamour to fuel a large machine she has constructed with the intention of ripping open a path to the dreaming. She knows no normal amounts of glamour will do, but she has also heard-tell of Aida Wedo, and hopes to draw the beast into a trap after bringing it to investigate the sickening of the land.
