Into the unsealed structure of the jinn's corporeal form another blade came, and with it the cauterising. The jinn roared, and its form soon changed into a dissipating column of darkening smoke that rose a a pillar toward the sky. But not before his second eye had closed and a beam of blue light had engulfed Suihime, bringing her to the state comparable with Yasuhiro. When the spectacle was done, nothing remained of him. Whatever mysteries the Qanonic Jin of the Windless Air carried were gone.

Except for the man and the woman lying on the mosaics. Breathless, but not dead, the Windless Air sustaining them.

The crowd, slowly coming to senses, started to disperse; only a few curious bystanders closed in.

A soundless scream was etched across Suihimes face as a a beam of the purest blue stuck her. Eyes widened, body frozen. She couldn't breath, she couldn't see anything but the blue blinding light.

Then it was darkness, but not a normal darkness. She was awash in an inky-blue sea, drowning in a calligraphy pot. The ink floating up, writing in the sky above her in words she couldn't understand. A language that didn't make sense, symbols and hieroglyphics that no mortal could hope to perfect. And yet, it was starting to make more sense as the symbol count increased. An alphabet of meaning. One filled with answers to questions she didn't know existed. Worlds that had come and gone, kingdoms rising and falling. She saw the land of the Jinn, the suffering they had both given out and endured. She saw creatures whose lives were endless, and powers even more so.

Answers. Answers everywhere. She had them in front of her, all she had to do was reach out. And reach out she did, out of the sea that threatened to swallow her whole. She grasped it, grabbing onto the knowledge given physical form, and pulled herself free...

Her body in the real world had gone still. Suddenly, her eyes opened, a blue glow to them as she spoke in a strange tongue - but still in her own voice.

"Knowledge is Freedom."

The glow faded away, her eyes returning to the normal violet colour, and she took a deep breath. Not willing to move yet, as her head tried to recover from the sheer knowledge assault. Not even able to translate the words she spoke.

Anzai had caught the display of what had happened. Then, he watched as the Jinn disappeared. Moving through the crowd, he found the lamp it had been in.

"Living here must have given him such a crick in the neck." Looking over the appliance, he smirked as he made the comment to himself. Returning it to the vendor.

"Such an itty, bitty living space."

Alhuddin gulped and fled from Anzai when the Scorpion wanted the lamp to be returned.

/Senpet Bronze Lantern remains in Anzai's possession.

Ruqqayah's eyes went wide at the events that followed. They left her at a loss for both words and motion at first. She took a few moments to check over the people who'd absorbed some of the Jinn's essence. She didn't really want to leave their side... The young woman looked overwhelmed after uttering that strange language, and the man was still unconscious, barely clinging to life.

Still, she called to Anzai, waving from near the two of them. " Shosuro-san! Sidi Shosuro! May I see the lamp?"

Kenzo was quiet for a few moments, looking back and forth between the two fallen samurai. "Does anyone-" He began, speaking slowly and clearly, "-know what just happened? Are they alright?" His brows drew down as he looked at Suihime. "What did she say to it?"

Hearing Ruqqayah speak in what sounded like the same language, he shot her a curious glance.

Shaking his head, Kenzo moved to pick up his pistols.

It was a gorgeous lamp. Intricate patterns and very fine craftsmanship. He let his fingers work over the thing for a moment. Then, hearing Ruqqayah, he walked it over to her.

"It is beautiful in design."

Ru looked toward Kenzo. "A Jinn happened," she replied in Rokugani. "Going by the young lady's recovery, I expect they'll be fine shortly... I just hope disorientation isn't a sign of underlying injuries... It doesn't seem so, though."

" She spoke a language I didn't recognize... I don't know."

A pause, then she finally said. "Ah... It feels a little late to say this, but I'm Iuch Rukaya. Pleased to meet you."

When Anzai arrives, she looks over the lamp with interest. "It is... I'm only sad I didn't recognize it's nature sooner... We might still be able to get something from it, though."

On examining the lamp Ruqqayah realised...

[Ruqqayah: Intelligence/Lore: Jinn vs. TN15, Intelligence/Spellcraft vs. TN20; Raises help]

Ruqqayah was intelligent... at least decently so. But she was poor at thinking about magic under pressure, and her mind blanked. The thought of the Jinn triggered something, though...

LM8, Spellcraft/Int, spending Void, 2 raises for TN 30: 8d10o10k5 27
LM 8, Lore: Jinn/Intelligence, 1 raise for TN 20: 5d10o10k4 30

Slowly, Suihime rose to her feet, holding her head.

Anzai kept looking at the lamp as Ruqqayah studied it. Maybe he could surmise something.

What's the deal with lamp? (Int 2, Lore: Jinn 1, TN15): 3d10o10k2 17

Kenzo cleared his throat somewhat sheepishly. Turning to Ruqqayah, he bowed. "Mirumoto Kenzo. It's a pleasure to meet you. A Jinn, you say?"

But Suihime standing drew his attention. Frowning, Kenzo moved over to her. "Miya-sama, are you alright? Do you need a healer?"

"Ugh..." Suihime shook her head, shaking the cobwebs from her head. It was unsuccessful, and she winced as she registered what Kenzo said. "Ah...Mirumoto-san. Nono, a healer would not be able to help me. I am just...processing what happened." She looked to the man, giving him a smile smile. "How long was I down?"

It dawned on the Scorpion and the Unicorn that the creatures like jinn are very unlikely to, well, die. The particular jinn's essence would need to be somewhere, continuing its existence after this failure, maybe not in this word. But Ruqqayah also realised that the jinn of Qanon could not survive without an anchor in the realm of men for long. Once bound to a man, this one had been likely torn by some Senpet experimentator from his host into the lamp. His determination to reconnect they had just witnessed. So there was a great likelihood that he would turn up somewhere sooner rather than later, trying to join with someone of worth. The question what could be his beacon remained open... or did it?

"Not long." Kenzo said, giving her a concerned frown. "Perhaps a minute? I'm not sure. It all happened rather fast."

"Do you... know what happened?" He asked cautiously. "You can remember everything?"

She climbed to her feet once it seemed like the two afflicted with the Jinn's essence were all right. "That Jinn won't remain inactive for long... Some of us should try to find where he would go next. He'll be looking for someone of worth, maybe with a notable destiny... Someone to serve as his anchor in this world." She bit her lip, thinking of who it might go for.

Suihime closed her eyes, remembering the scene she saw for a few brief moments before opening and smiling.

"I know what happened, but I'm unsure I can easily explain Mirumoto-san. It would appear that the Jinn was looking for worthy candidates, and decided to test us. By defeating it, we proved ourselves worthy" she looked to the Unicorn, unsure what to say around her - her last meeting with a Unicorn went badly after all.

"I admit, I'm a little surprised. I had heard that those in the Empire had a lot of taboos regarding spiritual and bodily purity. Having a Jinn riding you wasn't something I expected anyone here to jump at," Ruqqayah noted. There was no judgment in her voice, just a bit of genuine surprise. Of course, modern Rokugani being her fourth language or so, it didn't occur to her how her phrasing might sound. "Are you inured at all, Miya-san?"

"Worthy?" Kenzo frowned. "Of the, uh, seed of Qanon?" Goodness, but that was an awkward turn of phrase. "Did it, ah..." He waved a hand vaguely, uncertain as to what that meant.

He turned to Ruqqayah, his eyebrows going up. He pressed his lips together for a moment. "So, the Jinn may try to find someone important, and possess them? Using its definition of important, from the sounds of it..." Kenzo shook his head. "This is rather concerning information." He said mildly.
